Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Anti-Russia war propaganda is 'Made in Britain' | Australian Citizens Party |

Russophobic Anglo-American propaganda is nothing new, and indeed has been almost continuous ever since the USA and UK declared "Cold War" on the Soviet Union in 1946. After something of a lull following the Soviet Union's collapse, the clamour over the alleged Russian threat to the "West" began to grow once again, commensurate with President Vladimir Putin's success in reversing--albeit incompletely--Russia's disastrous collapse of the 1990s, since he began his first term as President in 2000.

Around the same time that the USA escalated against Russia in Ukraine by mobilising its proxy army of fanatically anti-Russian nationalist and neo-Nazi militias, the core factions of which had been in Anglo-American employ ever since the end of World War II, for the November2013-February 2014 "revolution" against Ukraine's elected President Viktor Yanukovych, Britain was busy expanding and modernising its propaganda apparatus for the digital age. These efforts culminated in the establishment in early 2015 of two new info-war outfits: the 77th Brigade, an official regular and Army Reserve unit specialising in cyber warfare; and the "Integrity Initiative" of the Institute for Statecraft (IfS), an ostensibly independent not-for-profit project that was covertly funded by the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and headed by a military intelligence colonel.
