I wonder how many Ukrainian fighters have posted videos or pictures on VK?
Anyway - now they will post them on Facebook - what does it change? It is an open info regardless.
But for ordinary society, I think most people realize that having your enemy control your media is a terrible, terrible idea that will mean almost certain defeat in wartime.
Ukraine realizes that complete free internet all the time is not worth losing a war with Russia over, and I say power to them.
There are many parallels to the disinformation campaigns that happen on places like /r/the_donald.
Look, I have no skin in this game. I just know some Ukranians and some Russians, and they tell me the stuff they see on Facebook.
And it's the same story as in all sorts of other misinformation campaigns like anti-vaccination: people are out to get you, you had better watch out, be scared. Now that you're good and scared, here's a very helpful and emotional video/website to prove my point, that just happens to be highly tailored to your biases.
It's basic human tribalistic nature, and it's unfortunate. It happens in the US with rural vs. urban, coastal vs. central, etc. The US may share a language, but gets divided because people think those other people disparage and hate them. I've never run into a Ukranian that wanted to rid Ukraine of Russian culture, much less Russians. I know Ukranian-speaking Ukranians that are glad to be speaking Ukranian and wrapped up in a new national identity, with Cossacks and all that. I've met Ukranians that only speak Russian that tell me "today I found out that Americans are just like us."
I don't expect to be able to convince people over the internet, but I'm still going to try. We need to learn about people and what they really want, and not be influenced by the very biased view that the internet presents to us. So it's a bit ironic of me post this on the internet itself, or maybe even hypocritical, but please, do not rush to judgement on these serious matters. There's been enough death.
So, that's my propaganda, as an outsider.
It is not the case that everyone thinks Russia is some horrible, evil country.
