After Maidan and escalation of conflict in 2013 Ukraine became to Russia something like a red flag to a bull. But now this place was taken by Turkey, says RBK.
During first nine months of 2015 Ukraine was in tot news of every Russian media. USA was on the second place. Ob average Rusin media talked about Ukraine almost two times more often than about USA. But the level of aggressiveness slowly goes down.
Since the beginning of interaction of Russia to Syria, Russian media talk about Islamic State.
When on November, 24 Turkey brought down Russian bomber SY-24, new enemy appeared on the screens of Russian people. Since then Russian media started to call Turkey “a sponsor of Islamic State”.
There were no special announcement about how to do display Turkey. Everyone focused on what Putin says and followed his lead, says staff member of Russian Federal Channel.
Right after the attack Putin called actions of Turkey “a knife in the back”. Mass media caught this idea soon.
