Peskov says Russian news media will succeed in reaching Western audience

It’s impossible to isolate one-sixth of the land, the Kremlin Spokesman reiterated

MOSCOW, May 17. /TASS/. Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said he’s confident that Russian news media such as RT will be able to reach the Western audience.

He made the comments at the educational marathon conference New Horizons organized by the Russian Znanie (Knowledge) society.

"They were physically turned off, but this doesn’t mean that they stopped their work," Peskov said. "Thank God, the guys continue broadcasting, and their voice will somehow reach the Western audience."

He said that Russia may have less tools than the West for conducting information wars, but they are very effective.

He pointed to RT as an example.

"They are really effective. Our journalists are very talented, they have a very high level of education, which allows them to provide qualified information, and it was precisely this competition that they were afraid of when they began to physically, so to say, eliminate a competitor," he said.

Peskov described as unprecedented, illegal and outrageous the restrictions that the Russian media have to face.

"I want to repeat once again that it’s impossible to isolate one-sixth of the land," he said. "One way or another, I’m sure that our newsmen will reach the Western and the global audience."

Peskov said other tools of information war include the absence of morality, the absence of rules and principles and an abundance of lies.
