russia is increasing spending on programs for foreign “journalists, bloggers and youth” through Rossotrudnichestvo [russian cooperation – UT], the National Resistance Center reported.

Rossotrudnichestvo is a structure created to operate the russian agent network worldwide. In the first four months of 2024, it announced tenders for 230 million rubles for “faithful coverage” of the war, more than in the entire year of 2023. 

Rossotrudnichestvo pays annually for thousands of young “representatives of socio-political circles” from abroad to travel to russia and the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine. In russia, foreign “journalists” are trained at the Sputnik news agency and the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper.

Later, they become “centers of propaganda” in their countries and conduct information campaigns against Ukraine and the civilized world. The National Resistance Center noted that propagandists are no less responsible for the war in Ukraine than russian soldiers.
