In addition to featuring clips of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson and social media posts of former US President Donald Trump and his son Don Jr., Kremlin-controlled propagandists have seized on another element of Practical agitprop: a soon-to-be-released film produced by Breitbart. film, my hunter son.
State media propagandists are working hard to promote the film, which is set to premiere on September 7 and reportedly focuses on various conspiracy theories about US President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
A promotional trailer for my hunter son was shown in its entirety on many Russian state television programs. “Sex, Drugs, The Notebook from Hell, and America’s Sellout.” The makers of the new Biden Jr. movie have promised to show it all to the public,” state TV show host Closing at 8:00 p.m., Ernest Mackevičius, announced in his introduction to the trailer on the Rossiya-1 channel this week.

Russia regularly brags about its moral purity compared to the “decadent and decaying” West, but Kremlin-controlled state television dropped any pretense when promoting the film. Abandoning their usual strict standards of nudity and sexual content, the state television show has not been shy about repeatedly airing tons of illicit clips featuring the president’s son.
A similar pattern was followed in other state media broadcasts. Trailer preview during Friday’s broadcast of the state TV show 60 minuteshost Evgeny Popov called the film “scandalous” and said the Republicans produced it with their own funds because “they were tired of waiting for justice to be done”.

“An interesting situation is emerging. America is on the brink of civil war, because these accusations [against Trump] simply won’t resolve. Europe is on the brink of civil war. Britain is preparing its police to suppress the riots, ”said Vladimir Solovyov during the latest broadcast of his state television program.
While brainstorming on how to make civil unrest abroad a reality, Solovyov brought up various issues simmering in Europe and the United States and mused aloud: “Why not escalate all these crises? ” The discussion veered into destabilizing countries seen as hostile to Russia, for example by mobilizing pro-Russian elements, staging protests and stirring up other potential unrest.
When it comes to America, Russian propagandists see distrust of the US election as one of the key things that will drive Americans to the streets. Appearing on Solovyov’s show, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova pointed out that more than half of Americans no longer have confidence in US elections. She accused the FBI, Facebook and Twitter of “election interference” for allegedly removing documents related to Hunter Biden.
