Part 1. Strategic methodology of russian propaganda: how to start a war

The Molfar team has prepared a schematic analysis of the algorithms of Russian propaganda. Since many crimes have been committed, we can see a clear trend in the claims and mistakes of the propagandists.

We will release this article in two parts. This is the first part, it describes the strategic actions of russian propagandists. The result of these actions is always the same – the beginning of a bloody war, which the russian government justifies in its favor.

In this part, we will consider how the Russian government started the war in Georgia in 2008, and how it was done in Ukraine in 2022. The scheme is the same, the chronology is restored.

The general scheme of the introduction of Russian troops into the countries of "brotherly nations"

  1. The country has the opportunity and desire to join the EU and / or NATO.
  2. russian federation is launching a campaign to misinform the population. Allegedly, a wave of "Russophobia" is growing in this country and real Nazis have come to power.
  3. Information on russia's "right to security" starting to spread through all channels. In other words, NATO is a danger to Russia, and Russia must respond to NATO's hostile actions.
  4. Preparation of the basis for the attack begins. In 100% of cases, russia accuses the United States of cheating the population and trying to distract the population from russia. Propaganda begins to work in full power.
  5. Then russia is trying to scare the country by building troops near its borders.
  6. After the attempt to scary the country, russia immediately announces the launch of a peacekeeping mission or special operation on the territory of this country.
  7. Propaganda begins to talk about the atrocities of the enemy army. Also, all strikes on civilian targets are presented as fakes, because Russian "warriors of light" by definition cannot do so.
  8. Russia is occupying part of the country and do everything possible to create an artificial government in this area. Also, the propaganda boosts the joy of "freed people" from the arrival of "liberators".

Conclusions on the strategic methodology of the Russian Federation for the beginning of the war

1. russia will finally break its teeth. And he will break them against our army and people.

2. We can argue for a long time about the causes and preconditions of the armed conflicts of the late years, in which Russia was directly involved, but the fact remains – the monster must be stopped.

Otherwise, the strategic methodology of bringing "peace" to neighboring countries will continue to be used as long as Russia has enough strength.
