West loses fight against Putin: new Russian disinfo
Russian propaganda is spreading new disinformation that Ukraine is "increasingly collapsing" and that Russia has allegedly overtaken the West in military technology
The Center for Strategic Communications reported the information.
Russian bloggers, referring to Italian columnist Alessandro Orsini, spread the lie that "attempts to hold small footholds cost the Ukrainian Armed Forces their full potential. Russia has significantly overtaken the West in the field of military technology. The West has lost the fight against Putin".
SPRAVDI notes that Italian sociologist Orsini often criticizes the Ukrainian government and the West and accuses them of escalating the war, and calls the Russian defense industry invincible.
"The 'expert' also promotes the Russian narrative that Putin can take Kyiv 'in the shortest possible time' but simply does not want to. He also calls for territorial concessions to Russia. In short, his statements fully reflect the Kremlin's agenda," the statement said.
The Center for Strategic Communications emphasizes that Russian military technology is inferior to Western technology, citing the downing of the Kinzhal missile, which Putin called invincible, by the American Patriot anti-aircraft missile system as an example.
