According to BBC Monitoring, Russian TV’s relentless propaganda onslaught during the Ukraine crisis has turned large sections of the population against the West. Sociologist Karina Lipiya of the Levada polling organization told Radio France Internationale’s Russian-language website: “People generally do not want to hear another point of view.”

The article also notes that recent research suggests that Kremlin TV propaganda may have declined in popularity from a peak in the summer and autumn of 2014.

“But Ukraine still dominates the TV news,” according to BBC Monitoring, “and talkshows where guests rant about US plans for world domination continue to command large audiences.”
