Russian propaganda media has undergone a total evolution since its
2008 incursion into Georgia. Its channels and methods now include the Internet, social media and the evolving milieu of amateur and professional journalism and information transmitters.
Russian propaganda has always been replete with an unabashed use of partial truths and blatant fabrications. Traditionally, effective communication and its resultant influence have relied on the critical importance of truth, believability and the avoidance of contradiction.
