America’s war of words with Russia is no laughing matter
Dominic Basulto

Just as American cartoons like Mickey Mouse and Daffy Duck blasted Nazi fascists, so too American cartoons now blast Russian cultural foibles. So what? Basulto believes that all news from Russia should be good news, celebrating Russian achievements in art, science — and of course celebrating military successes in Ukraine…

Dominic Basulto’s Kremlin bosses at Russia Direct, together with Russia Today, Voice of Russia, and other Russian propanda organs, want more power to undermine the strength of US culture. Basulto slips in a dig at @Kasparov63 serious, well-founded criticism of the Kremlin, not mentioning that Basulto’s Kremlin bosses have censored and Kremlin trolls have led attacks on Kasparov’s website.
