RussiaToday, hmm. I just watch Russian news in Russian(no point in waiting for the person to translate from Russian into English and me having to translate back what he/she is actually trying to say). There are at least 3(to my knowledge anyways) Russian-speaking channels in US that are sponsored by the Russian government and 1 English language Russian channel sponsored by the Russian government(RussiaToday). As far as the NYU protest I'm not sure what they were actually protesting(it was to see how tuition is being used etc?) but I do not see how sponsorship of Gaza students got thrown in there.
