One is purely defensive, and the other is definitely aggressive…One of their objectives – the aggressive objective – is to alienate the populations of the so-called uncommitted nations from the Western World at any cost. Communist Psychological Warfare (Thought Control). Testimony delivered before the House Committee on Un-American Activities (Second Session). April 7, 1958.
US seems to be doing a good job about that on its own already by its posturing and track record.

Western media outlets and social media platforms trying to censor or silence Russian media outlets as propaganda machines actually made me more willing to seek out and believe Russian news pieces and question the credibility of western ones.

The truth is probably a mix of the two somewhere in between cause both sides are releasing news that benefit their interests and keeping mum on news that don't. Media is overtly or covertly controlled on both sides.

Switzerland mulls jail sentences and fines for those who turn the heat up in their homes to more than 19C (66F), in preparation for the possibility that the country is forced to ration gas. By Peter McLaren-Kennedy • 07 September 2022

A spokesperson for the Federal Department of Finance, Markus Sporndli told news site Blick that if the country is forced to ration gas, it will have to take drastic action to ensure residents make the necessary savings. He said that if rationing is introduced, anyone who heats their homes above 19C (66F) could find themselves with a daily fine of CHF30 (€30.70) and jail for persistent offenders. Companies will also not go unpunished if they exceed their quota, with heating to be set at no higher than 19C (66F) and water at 60C (140F).

"It's really important to manage expectations in this conflict. Ukraine won the war politically. The second other countries were like 'Hey I wanna join NATO...' Russia lost. Putin lost. There's no way to come back from that....Militarily they may decided that they want to hold onto some dirt..."
"...Don't oversell this. Huge win at the operational level, but this doesnt mean the war's over. It doesnt mean that Putin is going to cave any day; Putin should have caved long ago. The soldiers there fighting are in the same situation soldiers have found themselves in since the beginning of time. Those on the ground, objective analysts, they know what the outcome is going to be, they know the political war is over. But those people they end up having to fight and continue to do their jobs until a bunch old old rich people who are in buildings that are printed on currency come to the realization. And sometimes this takes years...Don't oversell this. Its a huge win on the operational level but it doesnt mean the war is over. It certainly doesnt mean that the troops will be home by Christmas...and point of fact, I don't know a single time in which that prediction was made and it actually occurred that's not a prediction you're supposed to make that's an ironic statement that's normally said with sarcasm...Is it possible that this is the moment....sure, but we don't have anything to say that yet and managing expectations right now is incredibly important..."​

“Judging by what is happening and what is about to happen, this week marks either the eve of our imminent victory or the eve of nuclear war,” Margarita Simonyan, editor in chief of state propaganda channel RT, tweeted. “I can’t see any third option.”

“Judging by the scathing commentary in Russian Telegram channels and the shift of tone in the Kremlin-controlled media, Russians are in the process of losing the last remaining glimmers of their perceived military might,” wrote Gian Gentile and Raphael S. Cohen in Foreign Policy, likening the Ukrainian victory in Kharkiv to the American victory over the British at Saratoga in 1777, which turned the tide of the Revolutionary War.

That analogy may be a bit premature. Dara Massicot, Gentile and Cohen’s colleague at the Rand Corporation, warned that the next phase of the war — still massively influenced by Western military support to Ukraine as it bids to reclaim its lost territory — could see a whole new series of Russian provocations. “If the Kremlin’s annexation gambit fails to stop the fighting and support to Ukraine, the Kremlin will need to lash out to show it is serious,” she tweeted. “That means escalation that could come in different form” — including more missile strikes on Ukrainian civilian areas and energy infrastructure, cyberattacks, and exercises that involve the “brandishing of nuclear weapons,” if not their deployment.
