This was reported by the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

Propaganda products were produced by so-called “non-profit” organizations. “We are talking about structures not formally associated with the aggressor state, which position themselves as “autonomous”, but in fact, at the request of the Kremlin, they produce so-called “patriotic content” for distribution on the Internet: blogs, news, films, TV series, video games and etc.” , explained the GUR. According to intelligence data, these organizations were obliged to spend billions of dollars in budgets on internal propaganda for the following purposes: the formation of public opinion loyal to the Putin regime; justification of Russian aggression against Ukraine;

  • influencing the consciousness of the military personnel of the aggressor country by glorifying their participation in the war.
  • The GUR emphasized that the increase in the Kremlin’s spending on hidden propaganda for the domestic audience “may indicate both a decrease in the level of trust in the official traditional media of the aggressor state, and about the attempt of the Putin dictatorship to take control of the Internet environment in Russia.”
