Lithuania: Creativity to counter Russian propaganda


Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaitė spoke on Monday with the management of the public broadcaster LRT about how to limit the influence of Russian state media in the country.

Creativity is called for in the battle against propaganda, the liberal daily Lietuvos rytas writes:

Grybauskaitė stressed yesterday that society cannot let itself be deceived and that the state must not be humiliated. To this end public broadcasting must be strengthened so that it can adequately inform the public in answer to the Russian information war.

… But are informational programmes enough as a weapon against propaganda? … Moscow recognised long ago that humour and suspense are also key weapons in information warfare. … Our response to the virtuoso performance of Moscow’s department of propaganda will now be decisive: will it be boring or creative?
