<p>Across Russia, companies are <i>being forced</i> to prioritize patriotism over profits.</p>
</blockquote>
<p>This sentence is controversial because the it expresses a value-judgement, implying strongly that <q>patriotism</q> should be subordinate to <q>profits</q>. This obsession with profits is typical of American capitalism (much to the detriment of education, working conditions, healthcare, the environment, and so on), but perhaps not Russian capitalism. It also implies that governments should have minimal intervention in corporate affairs, which is also far from a law of nature. The choice of words puts readers on the side of the ostensibly victimized corporation. This is ideologically revealing, considering the company in question (Aeroflot) is majority owned by the Russian government (is it not a capitalist principal that shareholders dictate policy?). So, it's a value judgement from the <i>Times</i>:</p>
