MOSCOW, March 26. /TASS/. Attempts to improve Russia's public image in the world are not feasible due to the information war with the Western media, Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in an interview with TVC channel, which will air on Saturday night.
"They say that Russia has a bad public image. Do you know who else now has a bad image - the United States. We are currently in a state of information warfare with the trendsetters in the information space, most notably with the Anglo-Saxons, their media," Peskov said.
According to him, "You can consider this war declared or undeclared, but in such circumstances it is hardly feasible to engage in matters of image, it is about propaganda and counter-propaganda in the good sense of the word."
Presidential spokesman also noted the need to achieve greater integration of the Russian economy into the global financial and economic system.
"We need to advocate for it. We need to make economy competitive and involved in global competition. Only then we will confidently stand on our feet," Peskov said.
