The propaganda that has been circulating in Russian media about the "setbacks" and the impressive advances made by the Army of Ukraine, makes it seem like the people are not motivated to keep up with what's happening in Madrid. The Kremlin authorities have not yet reacted to the NATO summit.
"In Madrid the course of an aggressive pathway towards Russia by the bloc on the part of it is consolidated", stated the Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Riabkov. He also criticised the integration of Finland/Sweden into the Atlantic Alliance, noting that it was "profoundly instabilizing."
We can expect more responses from Moscow officials throughout the day, and tomorrow (Thursday), most likely from the Kremlin. Dmitri Perskov, the Alliance's spokesperson, stated on Tuesday that the Alliance was "an aggressive bloc that was created to confront, and it continues to demonstrate its essence and fulfill its predetermined tasks."
Roskosmos, Russia's space agency, published satellite images of Madrid and London on the eve before the Madrid summit. It is stated that the Resurs-P satellite took the photos from space.
Roskosmos publishes satellite images of the summit site as well as the decision-making centers that support Ukrainian nationalists, as representatives from the thirty member countries of the alliance.
Today's television reports focused on the Madrid summit evolution, but the background was all about the war in Ukraine.
Regina Sevastianova (special envoy for Rossiya-24 channel), underlined the words by Pedro Sanchez, head of Spain's Government, that Vladimir Putin "will not win war." He also spoke extensively about the deal reached between Turkey and Sweden by Finland, which allows them to join the Alliance. Sevastianova also emphasized Jens Stoltenberg's words that Russia is the "main threat to global security", which was stated by the organization's secretary.
