Alex Salmond condemned for taking the Kremlin’s rouble and hosting a talk show on the Russian channel RT as the shadowy state broadcaster agrees to register as a foreign agent in the US.

Alex Salmond has been condemned for
’taking the Kremlin’s rouble’ and agreeing
to host a new talk show
on the Russian propaganda channel RT.


It comes as the Moscow-based broadcaster
has said it will register with
the US authorities as a ’foreign
agent’.

Mr Salmond, the former SNP leader
and First Minister of Scotland, was
left out of work when he
lost his parliamentary seat in the
election.

But he has faced a storm
of criticism for taking up a
presenting role at RT, which is
funded by the Kremlin and well-known
for peddling anti-Western propaganda.


Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson said
on Twitter: ’It’s not often I
feel sorry for Nicola Sturgeon, but
Salmond taking the Kremlin’s rouble on
Russia Today? Ooft....’

Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie
said: ’What an unedifying spectacle to
see a former first minister who
fancies himself as the Michael Parkinson
of (Vladimir) Putin’s propaganda channel.


’Nicola Sturgeon will have her head
in her hands if this means
another round of Alex Salmond interventions.’


It comes after Jeremy Corbyn and
many of his hard-left shadow cabinet
ministers have faced criticism for appearing
on the channel.

Michael Gove, the environment secretary, has
attacked frontbenchers over appearing on a
’literal Kremlin propaganda channel’.

Labour deputy leader and leading party
moderate Tom Watson has called for
the shadowy broadcaster to be investigated
by the British regulator Ofcom.


RT was founded under President Putin
in 2005 and is viewed by
critics in the West as a
disinformation network.

Mr Salmond has put out a
picture posing on his new set
to plug his controversial new show.


The former SNP leader has also
tried his hand at the stage
since he was left out of
work following his defeat in the
election.

He performed a one-man called ’Unleashed’
at the Edinburgh Fringe, but the
show was panned by critics.

Mail Online have contacted Mr Salmond’s
spokesman for comment.
