MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Kremlin wants good news. The Russian leadership has told major companies to supply it with news stories that put its stewardship of the country in a positive light, according to documents seen by Reuters.

A seven-page document spelled out the kind of articles required, with a focus on new jobs, scientific achievements and new infrastructure, especially those involving state support. It also detailed how the stories should be presented, and gave a weekly deadline for submissions.

The instructions were sent last month by the energy ministry to 45 companies in Russia’s energy and utilities sector including Rosneft, Lukoil and Novatek, according to a second document, a list of recipients.

The drive coincides with the run-up to a presidential election in March next year when President Vladimir Putin needs a strong mandate with high turnout to maintain his firm grip on power after dominating Russian politics for two decades.

7. I think it's more likely that the Russians are following the Retrumplicans lead

They have their submissive little Bullshitter Puppets of Faux News and over 1,000 Hate-Radio stations across the country, doing such a good job that even pedophilia and child rape can't break the "Retrumplican good-Demon-rat Bad" brainwashing of their opioid addicted inbred child fucking Retrumplican voters.

Russia is probably jealous.

2. Sounds like a certain ego-driven person we have in the White House. Coincidence?

He won't be here long enough to get re-elected.
