“We are currently monitoring and reviewing incoming information about the publication of false messages in the media and social networks. The first generalized data on the revealed cases of systemic replication of misinformation have already been sent to the Prosecutor General’s Office for legal assessment and decision-making in accordance with the legislation of the Russian Federation,” the parliamentarian told reporters.
Among foreign media companies whose biased propaganda publications were detected, Vasilii Piskarev
Vasilii Ivanoviсh named, in particular, the Voice of America and Deutsche Welle radio stations, the TV channel “Current Time”, as well as Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and its regional projects, “Sever.Realities”, “Siberia.Realities“, ”Crimea.Realities“, ”Idel.Realities“, and ”Radio Azatlyk“.
He noted that parliamentarians paid special attention to publications of mass media and non-governmental organizations financed from the budgets of foreign states, and also carefully reviewed information on provocations inspired from abroad and scheduled for the voting day with the participation of graduates of foreign training camps.
“In these actions, systematic attempts to exert external influence on Russia’s internal affairs, to influence the will of the citizens of our country are observed. This is unacceptable and should not go unanswered in accordance with applicable law,” concluded Vasilii Piskarev.
