Ukraine More...

In Russia, Jelle looks at the news service, which plays a crucial role in the conflict in Ukraine. Russian journalists are murdered, independent media is scarce, and self-censorship is widespread. But what are Russians looking at? And how are they brainwashed? Jelle Brandt Corstius dives into the world of the First Canal, the propaganda channel of the Kremlin. Is it a mouthpiece of Putin, as critics claim? Or are we perhaps too one-sided in the West?
