Feb 20, 2023

The Russian propaganda does not pose any problems for Italy because the residents of the country do not watch Russian TV channels and support Ukraine.

This was said by Italian Foreign Minister Antonino Tajani at the Munich security conference, which writes European Pravda with reference to Ukrinform.

"99% of Italians support Ukraine. As far as I am concerned, Russian propaganda does not exist in my country, it is not a problem," Tajani said when asked about the influence of Russian propaganda and disinformation on Italian society.

When asked about the fact that Russian TV channels are available for viewing in Italy, the minister assured that no one watches them: "We are not close to Russia. Nobody watches Russian television, nobody reads Russian newspapers. This is not a problem for us.

Tajani also recalled Italy's commitment to fighting Russian oligarchs, particularly in the financial sector.
