"Putins famed propaganda system has always been less about ginning up enthusiasm and more about spreading doubt and uncertainty, proliferating so many versions of the truth that people feel lost and turn to an authoritarian leader to guide them through the murkiness."
In response to that the entire
western marketing industry with the know-how to make phone calls to random telephone numbers can set up an automated system with prerecorded messages for Russian telephone numbers debunking all those many versions of the truth.
The above quote comes from an article in The Atlantic by Peter Pomerantsev, which recounts the story of The Horbonos family in Lukashivka in the north of Ukraine that ended up with 5 soldiers from the Russian army in their basement.
The soldiers are motivated to work in the army because they are loaded with debts.
Now, have the voice-response system call random Russian telephone numbers with debunking popular propaganda items with internal logic and facts. At any moment during the message the listener can skip to the next item, ask for more detail or leave a reaction. Based on those reactions the system can be improved and the person will get a call later.
After navigating the entire system with all the information with details the system asks if the listener perhaps has debts that keep them awake at night. If so, please leave the payment information after the beep. Then Western citizens or governments can pay the doctors bill or utility bill on their behalf. On the condition that the listener is prepared to first do the same for someone else with money they will receive. If so, they will receive the information about bill to be paid and the money.
The amount of the bill to pay for someone else is less than their own bill, so they can't use what they get to pay it. They also get a telephone number from the other citizen whose bill needs to be paid. And they get to hear a recording of the message of the other asking to pay the bill. So they can double check it before paying it.
The news about this system will be legendary and will spread like wild fire. People will look forward to getting the call.
The price of all these bills is peanuts compared to what is now being spent to fight Russia.
