"Since the Russo-Georgian war of August 2008, the information battle about it has not stopped. After initially getting very negative press concerning their military aggression, the Russians “regrouped” and launched a massive propaganda counter-assault, using their existing networks in the West, particularly in Europe. This propaganda campaign sought to put the blame for the war on Georgia altogether, or at least to blur the difference between the aggressor and the victim in the eyes of the Western audience. In its attempt to blame Georgia Russia did not stop before promoting obvious lies."
