Süddeutsche Zeitung - an instrument of London and Washington for sowing hatred towards Russia

Summary of Disinformation

As the European elections are approaching, the Anglo-Saxons are desperate to stop the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, and curb the success of the European parties that are opposing the sanctions again Russia. An article in the German Daily Süddeutsche Zeitung is an example of these attempts. At the 75th anniversary of the end of the siege of Leningrad, the paper published a russophobic attack on the commemoration of the victims. Attacking the memory of the Russian people’s heroism in the fight against Nazism is done to drive a wedge between Moscow and Berlin.


Conspiracy theory, presented without any evidence.

The original article raises the question whether it is appropriate to memorialise the tragedy - "A monstrous crime by the Wehrmach", "A genocide" - with military parades instead of solemn remembrance. The siege of Leningrad was never memorialised in this way before; the parade is a first of its kind on this day.

Russian pro-Kremlin media have also published texts, voicing criticism about the military parade.
