Like Russia’s War of Aggression continues to ravage its neighbour, the Kremlin’s propaganda apparatus has been more blatant than ever in outlining the country’s goals for its greatest enemy: the United States

Last week, US intelligence officials would have assessed that Russian President Vladimir Putin can use the Biden administration’s support for Ukraine as a pretext to order a new campaign of interference in the US election. Although the AP reported that “it is not yet clear which candidates Russia might try to promote or what methods it might use,” Russian state media seems to agree that former US President Donald Trump remains Moscow’s candidate of choice.

The time has come “to once again help our partner Trump become president,” said state television host Evgeny Popov. stated recently. On Thursday’s edition of the state television show The evening with Vladimir Solovyov, Putin experts have offered an update on plans for 2024.

Kremlin TV hopes Russia’s messy war claim in Ukraine will help re-elect Trump

“We are trying to find our way, to determine the first steps. What can we do in 2023, 2024? said Russian “Americanist” Malek Dudakov, a political scientist specializing in the United States. He suggested that Russian interference in the upcoming elections is still in its early stages and that more will be achieved after the war ends and the frosty relations between the United States and Russia will begin to heat up. “When things unfreeze and the presidential race for 2024 is firmly on the agenda, there will be times we can use,” he added. “The most banal approach I can think of is to invite Trump – before he announces he is running for president – ​​to a future summit in liberated Mariupol.”

Dmitry Drobnitsky, an ubiquitous “Americanist” on Solovyov’s show, suggested that Tulsi Gabbard should be invited with Trump. Dudakov agreed: “Tulsi Gabbard would also be great. Maybe Trump will take her as vice president? Gabbard has recently become a staple on state television for her pro-Russian talking points, and has even been described as a “Russian agent” by the Kremlin propaganda machine.

If state television is any indication, the real Kremlin agent agenda was never limited to boosting any particular candidate, but rather aimed to harm America as a whole. Dudakov stressed: “With Europe, economic wars must take priority. Together with America, we should work to amplify divisions and, in light of our limited capabilities, to deepen the polarization of American society.

He continued, “There is a horrific polarization of society in the United States, very serious conflicts between Democrats and Republicans that keep spreading. You’ve already mentioned that America is a dying empire – and most empires haven’t been conquered, they’ve been destroyed from within. The same fate probably awaits America in the next decade. That is why, when all the processes are unfrozen, Russia might have a chance to play on this.

Dudakov’s Twitter feed, which he maintains despite the service being blocked in Russia, offers insight into his own propaganda efforts. Tweeting as “Duderman67,” Dudakov focuses on criticizing US President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and Hillary Clinton, while bolstering Trump.

On his Thursday show, host Solovyov claimed that Russia was not yet fully fighting the United States and complained about the loss of the main weapon behind enemy lines: “the working structure brilliant from RT”, the Kremlin-funded state television. network that was banned from US cable channels last month.

He then offered his own ideas on how to influence American voters without the help of RT: “I would act through different diasporas. For example, I would work with the Spanish-speaking media – since America is becoming predominantly Spanish-speaking, with the colossal influence of Latin America, I would work through their press, through those narratives, going in that direction…they’re not allowing us to work directly with the American media, but we have many opportunities that we do not use until now.

Appearing on Solovyov’s show two days earlier, Vitaly Tretyakov, dean of Moscow State University’s School of Television, complained that Russia “has military hypersonic weapons, but we don’t We don’t have informational hypersonic weapons…all our forces must be devoted to that. We don’t have info-weapons as powerful as our hypersonic weapons… unlike what they have. You cannot survive in this world without winning an information war. No way. »

Expert Karen Shakhnazarov suggested: “I would find it useful to sever diplomatic relations with the United States. I see no point in keeping them. And that would be a crushing blow to Biden. There are many people in the United States who say it is bringing us all to the brink of nuclear war. It will be a strong signal. »

That wasn’t the only nuclear war topic on Soloviev’s show this week. On Thursday, Solovyov confirmed a well-known concept frequently aired in state media when he acknowledged: “De facto, we are not waging a campaign against Ukraine, but against the whole West. A parade of experts recounted the various ways in which US sanctions affect the Russian economy and the limited possibilities of Russian retaliation. Soloviev resorted to his beloved trump card designed to intimidate the West: the threat of nuclear war. He asked, “Maybe it’s time to hit them?” Since we are already a pariah state, a war criminal, if all goes so wrong.

Barring a nuclear holocaust, it is now clear that Russia is concentrating its efforts to divert America from its foreign policy goals by threatening to meddle in American domestic affairs. Speaking about the upcoming midterm elections on Soloviev’s show last week, Konstantin Dolgov, deputy chairman of the Russian Federation Council’s Economic Policy Committee, predicted that “the results will apparently not be good for the Democrats” due to rising gas prices in Russia. in the United States But the midterm reviews, he stressed, are “just a rehearsal. The main elections are more advanced and preparations for these are already underway.
