Abstract:

During February 1985, the editors of Krasnaya Zvezda Red Star, the official publication of the Soviet Ministry of Defense, allocated over 44 percent of international and foreign affairs space in Red Star to topics and events that concerned the United States. During the month, the editors allocated 48 percent of its coverage of the United States to the subject of the arms race and arms limitation. The vast majority of the articles and editorials concerned reagans plans for Star Wars and military activities in space. In February, 11 percent of Red Stars coverage of American hegemony and imperialism concerned Reagans War in Nicaragua. For almost three years, the Russian propaganda machine has repeatedly exploited American political, economic and military actions in Latin America.
