Propaganda is practiced by all states: Russia, Ukraine, the United States, China. Propaganda is not something unequivocally good or bad. Healthy lifestyles are also promoted.
Now because of the *special operation in Ukraine* propaganda from Russia + China and USA + Ukraine has intensified. Here are some common wartime propaganda:
1. Either you support us or you support the enemy. There is no third option.
2. Our side suffers minimal losses, the enemy's losses are huge.
3. We fight fair, the enemy uses forbidden techniques/weapons.
4. This war did not happen because of us. Someone else is to blame for the start of the war.
