Russia seeks to circumvent restrictions on its propaganda tools

Russia seeks to circumvent restrictions on its propaganda tools

While the majority of Western countries impose restrictions on Russian propaganda and limit access to sources that disseminate it, Russia seeks to circumvent these sanctions by setting up clones of the restricted propaganda websites that continue to spread propaganda narratives.

In response to restrictions placed on its TV channels and websites, Russia has increased the spread of its propaganda through social media platforms such as Telegram and TikTok. Russian state-owned or state-controlled propaganda media outlets, their well-known employees, and individuals from Western countries disseminating propaganda narratives have taken advantage of the lenient approach of these social media networks towards the dissemination of hate speech and war propaganda.

Russia is attempting to intensify its information war against the West by launching new projects to broadcast propaganda from its territory. In July 2023, the Russian state-owned holding RT launched Sputnik radio broadcasts from the Kaliningrad region which reached the Lithuanian regions bordering Russia. The Russian regime considers the implementation of this project a priority.
