论文简介:

This study examines how the Kremlin enhanced its ability to weaponize news media during the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic. Russia sees international communication as an important track in its foreign policy, using selective information to advance preferred narratives to legitimize the regime and its foreign policy endeavors. This article uses both political discourse analysis and media frames to demonstrate that, in response to the continuous accusations from some Western countries, Russia has weaponized its discourse. This is done through a methodology combining qualitative (content analytical) and quantitative (digital corpus analytical) methods. It focuses on two interlocking components of weaponized language: delegitimizing the Western media’s inappropriate remarks about Russia and securitizing the anti-pandemic activities of the Russian government. This study concludes by noting that Russia regards a weaponized narrative as a tool of foreign policy, but this kind of media discourse is unlikely to produce a solution to real tensions and foreign policy problems with the US. The article incorporates pandemic-related statistical data provided by the World Health Organization, Johns Hopkins University, and the Russian Ministry of Health.
