“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 trend-setters in the information space, most notably with the Anglo-Saxons, their media.”

“Look at the pressure on our media in some European countries. I’m not talking about the states that recently joined the EU, like the Baltic States with their strong anti-Russian sentiment. It’s a different story, time heals all the wounds.
“Now, take the Brits. They put a lot of pressure on RT for [the channel’s] editorial policy – that actually amounts to nothing but indirect censorship. We constantly come under fire for alleged censorship in our country, but when we come under pressure in other countries, one simply turns a blind eye to it.”
