Everlasting stupidity: 250,000€ per year

Ever wondered why many Western business managers, journalists, politicians, or pundits defend Putin’s aggressive and oppressive policies? Ever wondered why so few Russians in Russia and abroad speak out against Putin’s oppressive policies? If you haven’t wondered yet, that is because as a Westerner you cannot fathom in the slightest the Putin system of oppression, coercion, and corruption. Continue reading

Der Spiegel about worthless Ukraine.

Augstein, main publisher of Der Spiegel, channeling his inner Ribbetrop

Der Spiegel, already a lie spreading, propaganda spewing, sorry excuse for a “journalistic” product, which once had some ethics, morals and professionalism is sinking so low so fast, that one can barely follow its decent down the drain into the sewers.

Yes, I am furious and there is a reason for that: Today Der Spiegel published an extremely tendentious piece linking the Ukraine government to Syrian jihadists, which I thought would be hard to top with its malicious content… but Der Spiegel managed to do just that and in less than three hours!

The new piece is by Jakob Augstein, who usually publishes uninformed barely logical ramblings with anti-Semitic undertones. This time he write about Ukraine… or as he says it “worthless Ukraine.” His argument is that Ukraine isn’t worth risking a confrontation with Russia, so the West should just retreat and leave Ukraine to Putin. The Ukrainian people don’t even figure in his views, all he cares for is to make sure his holy overlord in the Kremlin wins Ukraine, remains untouched from sanctions and lives to invade other countries another day.

Der Spiegel lies about Ukraine

By Thomas Theiner

Ukrainians as seen by Der Spiegel

Currently, Der Spiegel is toeing the Kremlin line and publishing one report after another, besmirching Ukraine, the Ukrainian people, and the Ukrainian government, while whitewashing Putin’s actions and ideology. Their recent article, “Halbautomatische Gewehre: Ukraine wickelt Waffengeschäfte über Deutschland ab” (Semi-automatic rifles: Ukraine concludes weapon deals through Germany) is a blatant example of their malicious attitude towards the truth.  Continue reading

The West Must Help Post-Soviet Countries Counter Moscow Television

Paul Goble, originally on Window on Eurasiarustel

Staunton, April 25 – At the dawn of the 20th century, Vladimir Lenin wrote that “a newspaper is not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator; it is also a collective organizer.”  Now, in the 21st, Vladimir Putin has updated this Bolshevik principle by having Moscow TV play the same role with the Russian speakers in the former Soviet republics.

Increasingly, Moscow television presents an alternative Orwellian world in which black is white and freedom is slavery, one in which governments that stand up to Moscow are CIA-backed “juntas” and those who employ violence against them are peaceful demonstrators defending their right to national self-determination.
