Delivered as part of the LACC/ARC/U.S. Southern Command Policy Roundtable Series -
Part of the LACC/ARC/U.S. Southern Command Policy Roundtable Series, this commissioned paper examines Russia's messaging in Latin America, and its role in strengthening the growing ties between Russia and Latin America. More specifically, Sanchez looks at Russia’s use of media outlets as “soft power” tools designed to increase the Russian government’s point of view across Latin America. He discusses what kinds of opinions and arguments are presented and how they are received, and finally, the challenges and opportunities for Russian strategic communication in Latin America.
