r/worldnews – /r/WorldNews Live Thread: Russian Invasion of Ukraine Day 78, Part 1 (Thread #218)

Russia uses propaganda because propaganda works. Not at changing reality, of course, but persistent use can easily keep reality locked outside.

Probably wouldn’t be a stretch to say that instead of improving their economy or society, they spent their resources into sharpening propaganda expertise for use as a political weapon – most of Russia’s adversaries should be familiar with that expertise by now. Russia’s just busy using it on themselves at the moment.
