According to a report by Russian Vesti TV station, on February 21, local time, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Zakharova posted on social media that according to information leaked from the British diplomatic service, the British government is manipulating Russian media in Russia through a network of agents in Russia.
These include traditional media and online media. Moscow is waiting for London to explain this.
Zakharova also said that the UK is providing financial support for the network of agents through many secretly established companies.
The British-influenced Russian-language media include “Meduza” and “Mediazona”.
At present, the Russian side has obtained hundreds of relevant documents from the British Foreign Office by a hacker organization called Anonimus.
They detail how the UK manipulates these media and gains audience influence.
