“Specialists of MIA [International Information Agency] Rossiya Segodnya analyzed 82,000 stories about Russia published in the top media of the seven leading Western countries in the first half of 2019. So, 49.81% of the materials were negative. Another 48.12% of the [stories] were neutral.”One third of the articles surveyed came from the UK.
