Yusov defined that the disinformation permits Russia’s safety companies to research “how society reacts by way of numbers and dynamics” and to evaluate the responses of “people, the elite and the media.”
“On this manner, the empire, which is constructed on the work of the key companies, learns find out how to proceed to rule,” Yusov stated.
He added that the fabricated experiences pressure Putin and his spokespeople to react and show the claims unfaithful, that means “he’s led down a sure hall.”
