“Even with the Russian government blocking and various social media platforms, the Russian people are still finding VOA news and information online via circumvention tools like Psiphon and nth Link,” Fry said. “Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, VOA’s Russian-language reporting has logged millions of video views across digital platforms.”

Given Putin’s “soaring” popularity, however, it’s hardly enough. And Washington seems to recognize that.
