Russian Propaganda: What You Need To Know

Cataloging examples of Russian propaganda and Russia propaganda campaigns around the world.

Russia’s Domestic Propaganda

Russian pop singer Alisa Vox was paid $35,000 for a music video that discourages people from protesting against the Putin regime. In the video for the song “Baby Boy,” Vox says protesters have “weak hands” and that they are acting as “puppets.” Vox told a news outlet that she believes young people were being deceived by Alexei Navalny, who is the head of the party opposed to Putin.
