Foreign propagandists of the Russian Federation regime

The Molfar OSINT agency has created its register of Russian Federation terrorist regime foreign propagandists. This page contains the names and private data of the propagandists. For each person, we have evidence of his or her propaganda activities in favor of Russia. The evidence was obtained by researching open sources of information. The commentary to the record contains expert analysis by Molfar researchers. These individuals pose a threat to the national security of countries that do not support the terrorist policy of the Russian Federation.

The main feature of Molfar's foreign propagandists' registry is the uniqueness of the collected personalities. Instead of mentioning famous names of internal Russian propagandists, we focused on the personalities of external agents of Russia. Foreign propagandists of the Russian Federation repeat the theses of the Kremlin leadership, justify Russia's armed aggression against Ukraine, call for the lifting of Western sanctions against the Russian Federation, and convince the world that the annexation of the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine is legitimate.

The vast majority of Russian foreign propagandists are citizens of the EU, the United States, Canada, or other Western countries. Even though they are actively engaged in propaganda in favor of Russia, the international community has not responded to their activity properly: removal from public positions, the introduction of sanctions, and investigations into personal involvement in crimes. Molfar emphasizes the seriousness of foreign propagandists' actions to undermine the territorial integrity and sovereignty of states, as well as manipulate international law.
