Russian propaganda trucks have been deployed on the streets of Mariupol, the Tass agency confirmed after Petro Andrushenko, adviser to the mayor of the city, reported it to Novaya Gazeta Europe. These are means made available by the Ministry of Emergencies, with a side used as a television screen tuned to the two Russian networks, Rossiya 24 or Perviy Kanal, on the information disseminated by the two self-proclaimed people’s republics of Donetsk and Luhansk, or on the broadcast of cartoons and children’s films. Two “mobile community information and notification systems” – this is their official name – run through the streets of the busy city and another is parked. “For three months, the residents of the city were in an information vacuum due to a lack of electricity,” the Russian Emergency Ministry explained. Similar trucks are in circulation in the districts, also in the Donetsk region, of Volnovakha and Krasny Liman.
