Russia keeping its propagandists on message. Amazing, actually.

Young/old/civilian/military/woman/man. Amazed how #Russia keeps propagandists on message. Exact same words: “Why did kyiv attack us?”

I’ve watched a lot of raw footage — a lot of it from VICE. Whenever there’s a camera, the DNR/LNR/Russians control it very tightly, and everybody says almost the exact same thing. It’s pretty damn impressive actually.

It breaks down, of course, as soon as you get to the towns liberated by Ukraine. There you get a variety of opinions, most of which seem to be pro-Ukrainian.
