The Ministry of Culture, together with the Ministry of Defense, is engaged in the formation of propaganda teams that will be engaged in "raising the fighting spirit" with the help of "spiritual speeches." This was announced by the Minister of Culture of the Russian Federation Olga Lyubimova.
“Now we are doing such very serious work with the Ministry of Defense, we are forming propaganda teams together. It is incredibly touching when there are various performers from various regions, of various genres, of various ages, because sometimes they are performers of the older generation, sometimes they are the youngest, still emerging bands, ”she said .
According to her, the performers themselves ask to be given the opportunity to “participate, help the common cause with what they know how and love to do”:
“Somewhere you need to visit the guys in rehabilitation, somewhere with a big concert, somewhere to perform on the square, somewhere to go to the regions.”
Agitation teams are engaged in "raising the fighting spirit" of conscripts, Vedomosti previously wrote , citing a source in the presidential administration. According to the publication, since October, propaganda teams have been sent to the places of training of those mobilized on behalf of the deputy head of the Presidential Administration Sergei Kiriyenko, and the vice-governors for domestic policy are responsible for the “ideological part”.
Earlier, the Ministry of Culture called the "degradation of Europe" and "the unity of society around the support of the army" priority topics for Russian cinema.
