Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov denies Russia has carried out war crimes in Ukraine but admits there’s been ‘significant’ Russian losses.
 
Dmitry Peskov, in his first broadcast interview with western media, said verified photos and satellite images of dead civilians in the streets of Ukrainian cities were a “bold fake”.
 
He maintained the situation in Bucha, where photos show many murdered Ukrainian civilians, was a “well-staged insinuation, nothing else”.

25 mei 2022

 
Little is known about the inner workings of the Kremlin, especially with Vladimir Putin in power.

This week on Conflict Zone: former Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov, who served in Putin’s first administration from 2000-2004. He knows what happens behind the closed doors of the Russian government.

He says he feared for his own life after opposition politician Boris Nemtsov was killed in 2015. And still does.

Mikhail Kasyanov: “Everyone in Russia should be scared.”

Tim Sebastian asked Kasyanov how much he knew about state-sanctioned killings while he was in office and how secure Putin himself is now. What about the rumors of the Russian president’s ill health? How does he think this war in Ukraine can end? And why, all those years ago, did Russian President Boris Yeltsin groom an unknown KGB colonel as his successor? All that – and more – on Conflict Zone

This is a perfect week to thank Ukraine for saving the world from World War Three. For now.

This Tuesday May 23, 2022, marks three months to the day that Russian President Vladimir Putin made the mistake that destroyed Russia as a superpower.

Three months to the day, that he ordered two thirds of the Russian army to invade Ukraine and replace its government. Something he thought would take three to four days.

Instead, for three months now his mighty army has been torn apart by the Ukrainian army. Britain’s defence ministry estimates that a quarter of the Russian army in Ukraine has now been made inoperative.

In an interview for the FRONTLINE documentary “Putin’s Road to War,” journalist Julia Ioffe discusses Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine — and why she believes the Russian leader is now “more dangerous than he’s ever been at any point in the last 22 years.”
 

“What he has opened up with this invasion is unthinkable,” Ioffe tells FRONTLINE. “And because he is losing and because the sanctions and the Ukrainians are humiliating him, because he is backed into a corner, he is the most dangerous he has ever been, because it is now existential for him.”

Julia Ioffe is an American journalist who was born in Russia. She is a writer for and founding partner of the media company Puck. She previously reported on politics and world affairs for The Atlantic.

This interview was conducted by FRONTLINE’s Mike Wiser on March 3, 2022. It has been edited for clarity and length.

19 mei 2022

As the United Nations warns about the devastating global impact of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, talks to negotiate a peace settlement appear to have collapsed. Russian President Vladimir Putin appears determined to push forward despite a more resilient Ukrainian defense than expected, as both sides seem to be fixated on gaining military and territorial victories. Meanwhile, the U.S. continues to pour millions of dollars in weapons into Ukraine. “It does seem that the United States thinks that Ukraine should be supported in its war effort, not its negotiation effort, until the very end,” says Nina Khrushcheva, professor at The New School and the great-granddaughter of former Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev. She also speaks about the current climate of civil society within Russia and the faulty intelligence that led Putin to decide to invade Ukraine.

“The fact that the Russian foreign minister spent a large part of the negotiations here not in the room but outside the room underlines that there is not even a millimeter of willingness to talk on the part of the Russian government at the moment,” Baerbock said.

45 Peter Pomerantsev: From Information to Disinformation Age – Russia and the Future of Propaganda Wars

Back to menu

16 feb. 2016


This event was recorded on 15 February 2016 at the IWM Library.

Despite decades of struggle for freedom of speech and access to unbiased information, the 21st century has not ended manipulation of and by the media. On the contrary, conflicts are being fought and won on TV-screens, airwaves and the Internet with an alarming intensity and frequency. Where does Russia figure in this troubling landscape? Did Vladimir Putin’s media-savvy regime invent the new mediated world in which ‘nothing is true and everything is possible‘ or did it simply follow certain preexisting models? Can Putin’s propaganda be countered and would this help to end the disinformation age in which we are living? Peter Pomerantsev took his newly published book “Nichts ist wahr und alles ist möglich” as a starting point to explore – in conversation with IWM Visiting Fellow Anton Shekhovtsov – new forms of Russian propaganda.

Peter Pomerantsev is an award-winning publicist, nonfiction writer and TV producer based in London. His is a regular contributor to the London Review of Books, Atlantic, Financial Times, Foreign Policy, focusing largely, though not exclusively, on propaganda in the 21st century. Previously, Pomerantsev worked as a consultant on EU and World Bank development projects in the former USSR. In 2013, he was a Russia in Global Dialogue Fellow at the IWM. The German version of his book about working as a TV producer in Putin’s Russia, Nichts ist wahr und alles ist möglich: Abenteuer in Putins Russland, was published in 2015.

Anton Shekhovtsov, an expert on the European far right and illiberal tendencies in Central and Eastern Europe, is a Fellow at the Legatum Institute, London. From January to December 2016 he is also a Ukraine in European Dialogue Visiting Fellow at the IWM. Beyond that, he is general editor of the Explorations of the Far Right book series at ibidem-Verlag (Germany).
