Meduza found out how the Kremlin directs state media to cover events in Karabakh
The Meduza news agency received a methodical manual on how the Kremlin directs the state media to cover the events in Karabakh.
Meduza obtained a manual sent by the administration of the President of the Russian Federation to employees of state and Kremlin-loyal media on the evening of September 19. The Kremlin recommends blaming Armenia and Western countries for escalating the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh. Emphasis should be placed on "the leadership of Armenia has recognized Azerbaijan's sovereignty over Karabakh." As confirmation of this thesis, Putin's staff recommends quoting Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan's statement in 2022—the statements made in October.
In particular, it is said in the manual: "Most likely, the Prime Minister of Armenia was prompted to make this statement by his Western "partners," who must fully share the responsibility for the consequences with him. The decision of the leadership of Armenia, which itself radically changed the status of Karabakh, became a signal for Azerbaijan to act, and now Baku perceives the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict as its internal affair.
According to Meduza, the Kremlin recommends that Russian peacekeepers' status be "observational." At the same time, pro-government media outlets should be told about the peacekeepers' assistance in "evacuating civilians."
The authors of the manual separately advise to note that people find "refuge" in the Orthodox church, which is located on the base of the Russian peacekeeping troops.Follow us on Telegram
