  • Top Lithuanian journalist: compromises in content necessary due to Russian information warfare
    always the possibility that those in charge of applying the letter of the law will go too far But Lithuania definitely has some really strong constitutional safeguards to prevent this from happening And secondly there are really exceptional cases where restraints can be applied With so many international free speech watchdogs out there any move to infringe constitutional rights and freedom of speech would immediately backfire with many repercussions heard all over that this has not happened despite the amendments that have been put in place signals that the international community as well as all the democratic world deem the legislative measures timely appropriate and necessary in dealing with the Russian information warfare and propaganda instigating enmity and war mongering But on the other hand as you said I have to agree that the letter of the law can be misused and abused The courts will be responsible for ensuring the new legislation is applied properly I m pretty sure that both from professional interest and the necessity to see how the information warfare against Lithuania is developing you watch many Russian TV programmes Are they always misinformative And does their journalism lack quality and professionalism Where can the line between propaganda and quality Russian journalism be drawn Indeed drawing a line when speaking about that is very important If we were to speak about all Russian language journalism there s quite a lot of it in the world We definitely have to make a pretty clear distinction between Russian media and Russian language media as they actually pertain to quite different things The former usually refers to the Kremlin supported Russian media that serves the Russian authorities agenda these are the ones that especially now are stoking animosity and war Sure some alternative opinions surface in that type of Russian media but that is controlled and the content is strictly limited The blog written by the Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny is a good example of what I m talking about The Kremlin supported media can be neither qualitative nor professional or corresponding to Western media standards But speaking on the whole no media controlled by authorities can be good That is the bottom line So from that standpoint media outlets that manage to run without support from the Kremlin stand definitely a much better chance of producing quality journalism though they often are in a much more precarious situation On the flipside do you see any propaganda on Lithuanian TV I mean when things are shown whiter than they really are Indeed the polarisation of the media is something we all have to admit is happening and it has been very palpable for the last couple of years not only in the Lithuanian media but elsewhere too It started taking place for economic reasons but now it s mainly caused by the geopolitical situation Editorial boards have worked out quite clear policies on international issues and the policies stipulate appropriate editorials and commentaries first of all Against this

  • To the Editor of the Baltic Times.
    was mentioned and I became aware that I had forgotten all about Russia in my work I realised I had made a big mistake I immediately wrote to President Putin and suggested to him that Russia might like to use the ideas as a great project for their young people after the Sochi Olympics The events after the Sochi Olympics led to me believing that all was lost but I decided to try again I had a positive response from the Russian embassy in London and I now believe that with the help of the people of the Baltic states these ideas can bring peace to the Ukraine help to weld the European Union together and change the course of world history One of the soft power tools is a children s story for people of all ages It can be adapted for any country On Christmas Day I adapted it for Russia and it is now in Moscow being considered by the Foreign Office I have also sent it in PDF form to all my friends and contacts around the world I believe that if this story was translated into Russian Lithuanian Latvian and Estonian made available to all through PDF s on you website and then the people of the Baltic states used their renowned media skills to spread it throughout Russia then President Putin will quickly be made aware and be delighted to take part I hope that through this letter I can inspire the people of the Baltic to read the story and take part They will change the course of history within weeks Sincerely David W Train former Olympic Coach Comments Related Articles Subscribe Advertise Log In Please enter your username and password Forgot your password Login Related Articles Subscribe A subscription to The Baltic
