Russia prepares campaign to discredit Zelenskyy abroad: propaganda messages revealed
The Ukrainian President's Office has warned that Russia is preparing an information campaign aimed at discrediting Volodymyr Zelenskyy and his team abroad
Head of the President's Office Andriy Yermak reported this.
In particular, Yermak shared the messages that will be promoted by Russian propagandists.
"They will talk about the presidential election in Russia, which will demonstrate the strong support of Putin by Russian society. They will say that there is a crisis in Kyiv, where the government is losing the trust of political elites; they will point out that the scandal between the leaderships of Poland and Ukraine proves that there is no unity between Europe and Kyiv. And they will argue that everything is based solely on the desire to use Ukraine as a "military battering ram" against Russia," he said.
Another Russian narrative will be about the usurpation of power and the cancellation of elections.
"Also, propagandists will try to convince the West that dealing with a stable Russian Federation, especially after Putin's re-election for another presidential term, is much more profitable than with Zelenskyy," Yermak wrot.
The Russians plan to spread propaganda in the media and use bot farms.
