Real Russia Today is a news digest to keep you up to date on the most important human rights news from Russia.   

Real Russia Today

Russia’s government uses state-funded media channels, Western PR companies, hired bloggers, and social media trolls to distort facts, deflect criticism, and mislead both the global community and people living in Russia. To counter the steady stream of propaganda generated by Kremlin channels, HRF has created this digest to feature news pieces, opinion articles, and non-traditional news sources (such as tweets and video blogs) that document the actual human rights situation in Russia.
