Russian Propaganda: Facts & Photos

Russia Hired American Communications Experts To Help Run Sputnik Propaganda Site. “Sputnik is part of a news and information outlet known in the United States as RT, the initials of its parent entity, Russia Today, which operates under the Ministry of Communications and Mass Media in Moscow. With State Department approval, RT opened the Washington office of Sputnik last year just as civilian contractors who shaped U.S. military messaging overseas were put out of work when Congress shut down most of a $22 million program.” [AMI Newswire, 2/12/16]
