Meanwhile, in an indication of what the Russian press may look like 
without pesky critical voices like Kommersant and Echo of Moscow, 
leading state media propagandist Dmitry Kiselyov unveiled 
SputnikNews.com on Monday. The pro-Kremlin outlet will publish news and 
commentary and eventually radio broadcasts in 30 different languages. 
One of the promoted pieces on the day of the site's debut was a column 
by Polish neo-Nazi Mateusz Piskorski, who attempted to argue that 
"Trotskist (sic) policy has grown into a global threat," and is driving 
the US foreign policy agenda.
