Black Sea Fleet: Battles on Shore



From the Russia Today propaganda channel dated 07 September of this year in English. A good overview of the situation on the Crimean Peninsula, with the caveat that it is a Russian propaganda outfit. Great footage of Black Sea Fleet ships and facilities. Of note: the narration denies that the Moskva was at August's Battle of the Black Sea.

This maybe off topic but I suspect we will get more and more of our military and political news on Russia through Russia Today so here goes:

RT is a very interesting channel. In many cases you have 20 somethings with Russian names and nearly flawless English. They're delivery is as polished as most top tier US media. If you are not tuned in to the events/politics/personalities at issue it would be difficult to point the finger and say 'propaganda'. Most important they sometimes have footage (especially of the Russian side) that you don't see elsewhere - because these folks have 'special access' and also because 'competing'organizations are denied access (ie South Ossetia).

In all this is a testament to the distance the Russians have travelled in terms of media savvy not to mention the level of funding they have committed. Apart from the BBC Russian service and VOA radio, as far as I know, the US/UK have nothing to match this.
