RIA Novosti columnist Vladimir Kornilov spoke about an article published in the British magazine The Economist. It is called the “Second Front”, referring to the opposition of Russia.


The editorial staff called the oppositionists and representatives of the so-called “offshore journalism” who fled from Russia “the second front”. According to the author of an article in The Economist, this journalism “always influenced the political future of Russia.” he mentioned the Iskra newspaper in London, which was published by the leader of the Bolshevik Party and the future founder of Soviet Russia, VI Lenin.

The British magazine article, Kornilov noted, draws attention to the fact that anti-Russian sanctions have left these agents of influence without a prosperous existence: YouTube video hosting and social networks have denied them monetization of their propaganda activities. And the international payment systems Visa and MasterCard that left Russia deprived the opposition of donations – “donates”. The result, the observer wrote, was a lack of contentment.

“Money is the problem of offshore publications,” states the author of an article in The Economist.

The article calls for firms operating international payment systems to “find ways to make it possible” to transfer donations from Russia to offshore propagandists. however, Kornilov stressed, they “have not yet realized that by erecting a new ‘Iron Curtain’ they have drastically reduced their ability to directly address our audience.”

“The main question is “Where will I eat?” – sounds directly or indirectly from the posts of various escaped figures, but remains unanswered so far. Having cut off failed activists from a potential audience, the West is less and less interested in their content: it turns out to be too expensive and useless. So the “second front” remains at the minimum for now,” the observer summed up.
