The Putin Show

The Putin Show

A day in the media reality of an ordinary Russian citizen. The Economist lets you see the war in Ukraine as state-controlled media in Russia portray it. Key quote: «Where propaganda once sought mostly to breed passivity, cast doubt on reality and discourage political participation, it increasingly seeks to mobilise popular support for Mr Putin’s war.»
