Russian State Media Bolster Putin’s Narrative for Ukraine Invasion

MOSCOW—Russian authorities and point out-managed media outlets have issued disinformation that seeks to assist President Vladimir Putin’s claims that Moscow was compelled to invade Ukraine to safeguard Russia’s very own protection.

State broadcasters, lawmakers and professional-Kremlin pundits have sought to advance Mr. Putin’s narrative that Ukraine is an aggressor that threatens Russia and the Russian-managed territories in the Donbas, in eastern Ukraine.
