According to Ukrainian TV channel ICTV, Italy would be at the centre of Russian information propaganda conducted by “intelligence agents” operating on national soil and by Italian citizens who, thanks to Russian funding, would support Moscow’s positions on the Ukraine crisis.
On June 14, ICTV broadcast a Russian-language service entitled “Спецагенты РФ в Италии и итальянские фашисты на службе у” ЛДНРВ »” (Special Agents of the Russian Federation in Italy and Italian Fascists serving the republics of Donetsk and Lugansk), accusing the Russian Centre for Science and Culture of Rome – Representation of Rossotrudnicestvo in Italy, to coordinate its action with the embassy of the Russian Federation, acting as a “HQ” for propaganda operations conducted by Russian special agents in Italy.
Italian politician Maurizo Marrone, accused by ICTV of supporting the Representative Centre of the People’s Republic of Donetsk told Notizie Geopolitiche that: “These are the usual propaganda slanders: unlike the Soros-funded NGOs, we did not receive a ruble for the establishment of the Representation Centre of the People’s Republic of Donetsk in Italy. My commitment is voluntary, based on a Eurasian geopolitical view alternative to the Atlantic one, as well as on the moral imperative of supporting the Donbass people, suffering for three years from a ruthless war that doesn’t even spare children amidst Western media’s guilty silence. “
