MOSCOW, September 9. /TASS/. Senator Mikhail Marchenko from the Bryansk region, to the southwest of Moscow, has announced plans to set up a patriotic movement to combat anti-Russian propaganda, the Izvestiya newspaper reported on Wednesday.
The goal of the organization called Zaschitim Rossiyu (Protect Russia) will be informing citizens of the Western propaganda and its representatives in Russia, as well as organizing public events and advocating national interests to reach interethnic peace in the regions.
"The Western countries more and more often make statements on various threats ranging from announcing sanctions and the alleged wrong Russian mass media that cover information on Russia, the West, Crimea and sanctions not the way it should be," Marchenko said.
He said activists and citizens should respond to these actions by refusing to buy foreign-made goods and supporting domestic manufacturers.
The senator reminded that the head of Russia’s Security Council, Nikolay Patrushev, said last week that officials should not use foreign Internet programs like WhatsApp, Yahoo and Google. "Many governors, federal-level officials and parliamentarians continue using these programs. Our movement will compile a list of these unscrupulous and unpatriotic citizens," he said.
