No, quarantine is not a tool for manipulation of the elections. No, the investigation and the subsequent accusation of the Russian Federation in the case of shooting down the MH17 flight are not unobjective and baseless. These are only a few examples of overt disinformation published on Czech and Slovak websites last month.
What do those online platforms have in common? Amongst other things, the regular reproduction of Russian narratives, one-sidedness, and low level of objectivity. Sometimes they publish blatant conspiracy theories, but they also clearly promote of the official lines of the Kremlin.
Case in point: The Slovak website Extraplus. The news agency “informed” its viewers about the protests in Russia following the constitutional referendum. But its text fawns over Russian President Putin and the author claims that Putin won triumphantly despite the opposition campaign in the media.
