Apparently, almost anyone can count as a Kremlin troll in the imaginary world painted by the Western media. Those who challenge the dominant Western narrative or offer a differing point of view and provide facts to support it are definitely part of the mix, the Austrian media outlet noted.
Contra Magazine argues that those, who are able to think for themselves and don't buy the "stupid baiting of Russia," have many reasons to follow these accounts. For instance, they offer a worldview different from the one expressed by the Western media.
The Ukrainian crisis makes a great case in point.
If mainstream Western media is to be trusted (and there is no reason it should be), the Ukrainian civil war is an epic battle of good and evil. "Satan Putin and his demonic legions failed to achieve global dominance and establish an everlasting kingdom of horror due to the last minute involvement of Jesus Obama and his Heavenly hosts," Contra Magazine observed, mimicking typical Western reports.
Not only are mainstream Western media outlets making stories like these ones up, they refuse to cover newsworthy events that matter. They fail to properly cover the transporting of heavy American armaments across Europe, the website pointed out. Ukrainian soldiers making a Nazi salute or brandishing swastikas get little attention as well. Yet these missing pieces of the large puzzle are essential to form an unbiased and comprehensive worldview.
The aforementioned list of Twitter users will also help those interested to learn more about Russia, Contra Magazine added. They provide plenty of information on the "vast and wonderful country, as well as its nice and proud people" offering a glimpse into the mysterious Russian soul.
This is especially vital "taking into account endless brainwashing with dubious American ideology," the media outlet stated.
