Latvia must defend itself against Kremlin propaganda


Poland and the Netherlands want to found a Russian-language news agency to react to Russian propaganda

Latvia should also be involved in the project because the country is not making much headway with its plans to establish its own TV channel for the Russian-speaking population, admits the national-conservative daily Latvijas Avīze:

Latvia really ought to participate in the project because we have no money or time to create a decent Russian-language channel. The EU High Representative Federica Mogherini has also failed to show any resolve in taking effective steps against the Kremlin’s disinformation campaigns. At the same time in Latvia we had to register a branch of the Russian news agency Rossiya Segodnya although its boss Dmitry Kiselyov has long had a place on the EU list of sanctions.

Nunja, die USA sind ja schon zum staenkern und aufruesten vor Ort. Und so ein Schwachmat und gesuchter Krimineller wie Sakaschwili laesst sich bestimmt auch finden.
