The propaganda wars are heating up

In Copyranters latest substack, “TIME TO MOVE TO RUSSIA”—a measured review, he’s unearthed a Russian propaganda piece to review. He tears it apart and rips it better than a pair of 90s jeans – but what else would you expect?

The ad is a trollvert (yeah, I reckon we should name homespun ‘ads’ that) first released by the pro-Russian Telegram channel “Signal” available at ssigny – this is a rabbit hole you should not bother to go down unless you’re really into Russian language war propaganda with lots of gory uncensored photos and videos. Signal credits the concept to “Nikita T” Никита Т. The Telegram channel has almost 700,000 subscribers where they posted it on July 25. Then they also uploaded it to youtube where it now almost has 123500 views.  

It spread further when Russian language media picked it up here, adding the spoof response video using the same VO but swapping out the images. So, “gourmet cuisine” is accompanied by shots of a moldy bun from the “Tasty and Tochka” restaurant, “fertile land” is shown as a soldier’s cemetery, and “vodka” is said over the image of Maria Zakharova. For those unaware, she is the Director of the Information and Press Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation. Nice slap-back.
