According to the Guardian, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova, during her public speech in Yekaterinburg, said, “For many years we believed that Orwell was describing the horrors of totalitarianism. This is one of the biggest global frauds […] Orwell [1984] wrote about the end of liberalism. He described how liberalism would lead humanity to an impasse,” he said.

During Zakharova’s speech, a member of the public suggested that Russia is currently experiencing a modern-day adaptation of Orwell’s novel. Zakharova replied, “Orwell didn’t write about Soviet Russia, it wasn’t about us.” “He wrote about the society in which he lived, about the collapse of the ideas of liberalism. You were led to believe that Orwell was writing about Soviet Russia.”


Published in 1949, the book is seen as a warning of the consequences of totalitarianism and mass surveillance. Orwell’s totalitarian government depicted in the novel is believed to be modeled after Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia under Stalin.

George Orwell’s novel 1984 is set in a dystopian (life in a totalitarian state model) world. It is one of the most famous dystopian novels. The concept of Big Brother, especially defined in the book, is still used frequently today.
