What are Russia’s real goals in Ukraine?’ Watch the latest episode of YouTube series

A new video by the EU-supported project ‘What the propaganda is silent about’, highlighting Russia’s war aims in Ukraine, has been released on YouTube.

The project is implemented by Zerkalo.io, an independent Belarusian media created by part of the former TUT.BY team, and Ukrainian 24 TV, in partnership with EU NEIGHBOURS east and EUvsDisinfo.
In this episode, journalists try to figure out why Russia launched a full-scale and unprovoked war against Ukraine. The journalists point out that Russian officials constantly claim new reasons for the attack, tactically changing their narrative depending on the state of affairs on the front. But Alexander Lukashenko seems to have let slip Putin’s real aims in Ukraine.

The story is available in Russian with English subtitles.

The newly-launched YouTube channel ‘What the propaganda is silent about’ addresses Russian-speaking audiences with reliable information about the war, and aims to combat Kremlin propaganda and myths, which are actively promoted in Belarus, Moldova, Ukraine, and the wider EaP region.
