Så här skriver NATO Strategic Communications om Sputnik:

Sputnik is a media organisation which describes itself as a ‘news agency.’ It was established in 2014 by the Russian government-controlled news agency Rossiya Segodnya, and operates in over 30 languages. According to the presidential decree which established its parent company, Sputnik’s purpose is “to provide information on Russian state policy and Russian life and society for audiences abroad.” Sputnik is widely considered to be a major source of fake news and systematic disinformation.
