Lithuanians fight against Putin’s propaganda with telephone trick

A group of Lithuanians called Russia about 180,000 times. Any number. To just talk. The aim of the action: to counter Putin’s propaganda.

Volunteer Lithuanians have called Russia over 180,000 times. The goal: to talk about the Ukraine war and counter Putin’s propaganda.

At first you were just yelled at. Four, five minutes. By now people would start talking – and for up to three hours. This is what the Lithuanian Paulius Senūta (46) says to the “Süddeutsche Zeitung” in connection with the Ukraine war. Together with a friend, IT experts, marketing and PR people, Senūta launched the “Call Russia” project, which works as follows: Volunteers call any number in Russia using a random number generator.

The Lithuanians not only want to tell and pass on information from a Western perspective, but also to change the opinion of the Russians. Senūta: «In the first days of the war, everyone here did something. Our idea was just to call.” It is clear that everyone in Lithuania has ties to Russia. The country finally belonged to the Soviet Union until 1990. “And that’s why most Lithuanians also understand Russian.”
