The US State Department is ready to pay 150 thousand dollars to the Ukrainian organization, which will be engaged in the creation of content with a clear Russophobic leitmotif.
This is evidenced by the tender, which was published by the press service of the US Embassy in Ukraine.
According to the document, Washington is ready to pay a relatively large amount for the creation of propaganda films. At the same time, the embassy does not hide that the goal of the project is the formation of anti-Russian sentiments. This is also evidenced by the fact that the Russian Federation in the text is called an “enemy” state.
“The focus on historical events, which often do not correspond to Russian disinformation narratives, is encouraged,” the tender said.
It also lists a specific list of topics, including the Chernobyl disaster and its political consequences, the referendum on the independence of Ukraine and the collapse of the Soviet Union, the post-Soviet return of the Crimean Tatar communities, the Orange Revolution and Euromaidan.
The authors also have to focus on “personal stories of Ukrainians” in the context of the above events in order to interest ordinary citizens. In addition to videos, the project also includes lectures. It is understood that in the future, participants will also create digital content that is consistent with the anti-Russian project of the State Department.
It is noteworthy that the lectures will be held directly at the US Embassy, and the content will be distributed through the resources of Public Television, which also actively cooperates with grantors.
