A friend of mine is translating 2.5 hours of Russian propaganda

Currently translating a 2.5 hour Russian propaganda film in which we discover that the whole Ukrainian uprising was caused by the American government, which in turn caused Putin to “save” Crimea to prevent …um ethnic cleansing?

The film does bring up some interesting points, and knowing America’s track record especially in the last 15 years, I’m not ruling out some sort of involvement. But the amount of paranoia that the Russian public is constantly exposed to… Well in short, just the tone of this the whole film is disturbing. No wonder the Russian people are in the dark about just about everything and fear that Ukrainian nationalists will burn them in their beds as they sleep. Nothing can be farther from the fucking truth. Too much Putin on TV telling his people what to think.
