Full name:
Yakovlev Stanislav



Professional field/official position/biography:

Journalist, blogger. An employee of the Russian state TV channel RT, one of the regular guests of the RT-owned YouTube channel “Beautiful Russia boo-boo-boo,” aimed at deliberately defaming the opposition to the Putin regime.

Born on July 6, 1982. Calls himself Ortega since the days of blogs in LiveJournal (Russian propaganda media and websites often refer to him as their expert, calling him a “political scientist” or “political analyst Ortega”). In the past, he adhered to pro-democratic and even rather radical political views. He has been convicted for possession of 3 grams of ephedrone.

Accused of:

Deliberate defamation of the Russian anti-Putin opposition and protesters in general. Propaganda of hatred and dehumanization of those participating in the protest movement in Russia (“...I haven’t considered them as people for a long time”).

Stanislav Yakovlev, being on a government payroll, covered social and environmental protests in the regions (making direct insults against the Russian protesters, for example, about the events in Shies of the Arkhangelsk region). He posted texts expressing public support in judicial pressure on the opposition from the “victim of libel” of a friend of Putin and businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin.

He is currently an employee of the RT agency, a frequent guest on the “Beautiful Russia boo-boo-boo” YouTube channel. As an invited “expert” (it is not very clear in which particular area) he spends the time allotted on the air mainly denouncing and gloating about the structure of the opposition leader Alexei Navalny. In this regard, especially indicative is the stream of “Beautiful Russia boo-boo-boo,” about Navalny's arrival after treatment in Germany after the poisoning of Novichok and the subsequent arrest of an opposition politician. In 2020, he received 420,000 rubles a month (or five million rubles a year) for erupting this rhetoric and, according to Margarita Simonyan, editor-in-chief of the RT news agency, its employees are expecting a rise after their income levels have been exposed.
