Putin & Lukashenka Agree To Unite State Propaganda

The dictators want to create a media holding.

The dictators of Russia and Belarus, Vladimir Putin and Aliaksandr Lukashenka, signed a decree on the creation of a “union state” media holding. According to RIA Novosti, the decision was made at a meeting of the Supreme State Council of Russia and Belarus, held in St. Petersburg.

The creation of a “union state” between Russia and Belarus was agreed upon in December 1999, and 28 union programs were approved in November 2021. At the same time, Lukashenka expressed the idea of creating a media holding of a “union state.” He proposed not to “spread the money allocated for state propaganda across existing newspapers, magazines, telegram channels” and other media, but to “gather it into a fist” within the framework of a single media holding.

Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, Russian authorities have been investing record amounts of money in propaganda, while simultaneously losing audiences. According to the data presented in the draft budget law for the next three years, in 2023 the cost of maintaining state media amounted to 122.1 billion rubles. This exceeds the budgets of several medium-sized Russian regions. In 2024, expenses will amount to 121.3 billion rubles.
