Words to denigrate: how Russian propaganda talks about Ukraine, and why - Propaganda Diary #6

March 9, 2023

In this episode of our Propaganda Diary, we analyze the vocabulary of Russian propaganda about Ukraine.

An "anti-Russia," "puppet of the West," "former country", "nezalezhnaya," and "terrorist state" - why and how do Russian propagandists use these words, and what purpose do they serve?

  • Volodymyr Yermolenko, UkraineWorld's chief editor, speaks to UkraineWorld analysts Alona Hryshko and Anastasia Herasymchuk.

Explaining Ukraine is a podcast by UkraineWorld.org, a website in English about Ukraine, brought to you by Internews Ukraine.
