We zien regelmatig indrukwekkende staaltjes van machtsvertoon en desinformatie voorbijkomen in de programma's die de Russische bevolking te zien krijgen op de Staats TV-zenders.
De onderwerpen Verenigde Staten en Oekraïne zijn geliefde gespreksonderwepen.
In de nieuwe weblog-serie 'Russische Staats TV' plaatsen we wekelijks korte impressies van het wereldbeeld dat de doorsnee Pjotr en Olga voorgeschoteld krijgen:
Trump's ridiculous podcast comments are being replayed on various Russian state TV programs, but Kremlin propagandists want him to try even harder. Describing Trump as "our previous candidate," state TV host Evgeny Popov said that Russia is yet to decide whom to support in 2024. pic.twitter.com/ibjssjfui4— Julia Davis (@JuliaDavisNews) August 2, 2022
On Russian state TV, State Duma Defense Committee's head Andrey Kartapolov proposed taking Ukrainian children from occupied territories and shipping them off to military boarding schools in Russia. Not one word about asking for their parents' permission or even their own wishes. pic.twitter.com/EWpWUXNOmp— Julia Davis (@JuliaDavisNews) August 1, 2022
Meanwhile on Russian state TV: using Trump and Tucker Carlson as their shining stars, Kremlin-controlled propagandists outline what they believe will be the key points for the midterms: attacking U.S. support for Ukraine, harping on the economy and inflaming gender issues. pic.twitter.com/uvyjAdwjq5— Julia Davis (@JuliaDavisNews) August 1, 2022

Meanwhile on Russia's Kremlin-controlled state TV, host Evgeny Popov—who is also a State Duma member—is criticizing the DOJ and the Biden administration for their alleged intent to put "our Trump," as the Russians call him, behind bars. pic.twitter.com/8NEEhmrIkl— Julia Davis (@JuliaDavisNews) July 28, 2022
