NATO’s propaganda wing suggests Russia is experiencing a “Putin exodus.” Is it true or is the Atlantic Council just pushing a narrative? The pressure group is currently advertising a US-government backed ‘Disinfo Week’, with seminars in Belgium, Greece and Spain next month. Ironically, at the same time its own lobbyists have decided to concoct some misleading headlines of their own. This is the only explanation for a bizarre report which suggests Russia is currently suffering from an exceptional “brain drain.” A contention which flies in the face of facts, given the country has one of the lowest emigration rates in Europe. Indeed, Russians are around four times less likely to depart their homeland than Brits, for example.
