The Kremlin notes that even the most respected American or British publications publish dictated articles.

Entering the pre-war ecstasy, Western countries impose censorship on their mass media, said Dmitry Peskov, the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation.
The Kremlin representative commented on the meeting of Russian leader Vladimir Putin with the heads of world news agencies on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), held last week.
Peskov expressed his conviction that the editorial policy of international news agencies is not free in the full sense of the word – especially in the West, where they “put themselves in a state of preparation for war” with Russia, which they talk about directly.

“… they, entering into such, you know, pre-war ecstasy, begin to infringe on the interests of the media accordingly, putting the media in a state of censorship,” Peskov said in an interview with journalist Pavel Zarubin, stressing that what is happening is visible to the naked eye.

The video was posted on the journalist’s Telegram channel.

The press secretary of the President of Russia noted that even the most respected American or British publications contain materials written “under dictation.”

Is it worth communicating

At the same time, Peskov noted that it makes sense to communicate with Western media.

“We should try to explain our position. It’s like riding a bike. You can’t stop here, you have to do it all the time. You need to pedal constantly,” the press secretary explained.

According to him, after the invitation to a meeting with Putin at the SPIEF was sent, “someone thought faster, someone thought slower,” but everyone responded at once.

“They are interested in this. Meeting with Putin nowadays is a great chance for any serious media to get a first-hand assessment of what is happening,” Peskov stressed.
