Mykola Davydiuk: Russia remains faithful to old imperial models

“Russia is trying to use old models of the world, imperialistic models. The UN Security Council demonstrates the presence of an Еmpire there. But it does not demonstrate the presence of rapidly developing economies or important regional players. We do not see India, South Africa, Germany, Brazil and other countries there. Putin benefits from the image of a “victim of terrorism”. It’s very important for him to change the narrative, and he uses it”, – said Mykola Davydiuk, director of the Policy Center, author of the book How Putin’s Propaganda Works.

Mykola thinks that Russia remains faithful to the old imperial models. In general, we need to talk about Russian narratives and Russian corruption in the West. After all, those who could stop these narratives are very loyal to this.
