i am finding it very difficult to understand the urgency to counter russian state propaganda

here in the uk, its impossible to show neutrality or any support for operation z - you will be emotionally or violently attacked

this is the result of a NATO mass propaganda campaign targetted at the domestic population

here the news is constantly that putin is insane, likes killing kids and ukraine is winning the war

i am sure the situation is the same in .nl

so why focuss on .ru propaganda ? it is having almost zero effect on the western populations

how does your project differ from western state propaganda units spreading anti-russian dis-information to the general public ?

The whole publication is in English with all the authors submitting the essays 
in this language. Thus, the publication is
unfortunately exclusive for those who do not speak English. There is some 
Russian used in the screenshots explaining Russian
state propaganda in the text by Ukrainian researcher Karyna Lazaruk and Marc
