Joe Biden, who plans to compete for the post of head of state on a Democratic Party ticket, was accused of sexual harassment. But what is curious: the press and the public, who usually relish such stories in detail, are now simply keeping silent.The largest television channels ignored the story. Nobody even asks Joe Biden about accusations of harassment. It is worth noting that the most influential US media support the Democrats. It turns out that when the presidency and the interests of his candidate are at stake, the harassment and rights of women journalists are not so worrying.
The US and some Western countries push their geopolitical interests even during the coronavirus crisis, and do not allow European countries, even NATO partners, to contact Russia for aid and assistance.
Disinformation narrative claiming that Moscow is ready to provide disinterested help to European countries affected by coronavirus but “superior friends” (US, NATO, EU) did not allow Russia to do so.
The Italian experience proves that this is not true.
Italy did not receive any veto from EU or NATO or from any “superior friend”, in fact on the 22nd of March Russia sent and aid mission to Italy.
Later on the 1st of April Russia sent a cargo plane filled with masks and medical equipment to the U.S., after President Donald Trump accepted an offer of humanitarian aid from Putin to fight the coronavirus outbreak.
In the case of Italy several observers questioned the nature and the goals of the Russian mission and its real value in fighting the epidemic.
The NATO general Tod Wolters told the Guardian that he was chiefly concerned about the presence of Russian military staff in Italy.
According to the outlet Coda that interviewed two sources inside the Italian military “most of the aid is superfluous to the country since Italy is reputed to have some of the best nuclear, biological and chemical capabilities within NATO”.
A report by Italian daily La Stampa said that most of the Russian assistance was useless.
