Disinfo: The West is dehumanizing Russia, in the same way like the Nazis were dehumanizing the Jews, in order to turn Russia into a symbol of Evil


This might be preparation for the final solution of the Russian question one way or another. If you want to destroy someone, you must turn him into an absolute symbol of Evil. They turned Saddam Hussein into that. Turned Milosevic. Now, like that, they are not dehumanizing Putin. They are dehumanizing Russia. In today’s Western propaganda, we are an absolute Evil, like the Jews were for the Nazis! And it wasn’t an accident that [the West] brought Ukrainian Nazis to power. This is a real preparation for the aggression [against Russia].

Both the EU and NATO have a long record of cooperation with Russia. Despite current difficulties in the relationship with Russia, the EU and its Member States have maintained a clear policy of reaching out to Russian society and youth, mainly through the Erasmus+ student exchange programme and other people to people contacts.

As for the ‘Nazis in Ukraine’, Democratic, competitive and generally well-organised presidential and parliamentary elections were held in 2014 and local elections in 2015. The EU welcomed this progress. The OSCE, which observed all these elections on the ground, characterised the Presidential elections (report http://www.osce.org/odihr/elections/ukraine/119078?download=true) as showing the "clear resolve of the authorities to hold what was a genuine election largely in line with international commitments and with a respect for fundamental freedoms." According to the OSCE, the only areas where serious restrictions were reported were those controlled by separatists, who undertook "increasing attempts to derail the process." The OSCE characterised the 2014 parliamentary elections (report http://www.osce.org/odihr/elections/ukraine/126043) as "an amply contested election that offered voters real choice, and a general respect for fundamental freedoms".

In the USSR, the CIA agents organised a gas leak on a pipeline in the Chelyabinsk region, two passenger trains drove into this cloud, and all the passengers were burned alive

We [in the USSR] got a computer sabotage by the United States of America. It was a gas leak in the gas pipeline, and two trains that drove into this cloud burned completely. Two passenger trains. And it was only in the late 90s that we learned from the memoirs of the CIA agents that it turned out to be a CIA mission. That they inserted computer bugs, which conducted the corresponding sabotage.



Mixing up two different stories. Thomas C. Reed, a former Air Force secretary, writes in his book "At the Abyss" that a C.I.A. campaign of computer sabotage resulted in a huge explosion in Siberia in 1982, with no casualties known. www.nytimes.com/2004/02/02/opinion/the-farewell-dossier.html, The claim has not been corroborated by intelligence agencies in the United States

The largest railway tragedy in the USSR after WWII occurred on June 4, 1989 as a result of a volumetric explosion of the gas cloud formed by the gas leakage from the pipeline "Siberia - Ural - Povolzhie", when two passenger trains were passing by about 1 km from the place of it. 645 people were killed, more than 600 injured. Officials reported about the explosion power of 250-300 tons of trinitrotoluene. Independent experts believed that it was 12 kilotons of TNT, which is comparable to the nuclear explosion in Hiroshima https://www.springer.com/us/book/9783319242996  . According to the official investigators, a gas leak from the pipeline happened due to damage caused by the excavator bucket during its construction in October 1985, four years before the disaster. The leak started 40 minutes before the explosion.

The West, including the US, is forcing the Ukrainian Army to start a war against Russia and for this purpose is supporting the protests organised in Kyiv by Mikheil Saakashvili

The Ukrainian military has already made a number of statements that show Ukraine is forced [by the West, primarily the US] to start a war [against Russia in order to liberate Donbas]. […] In addition, you have to understand that Saakashvili, who appears to be the future prime minister of Ukraine, is the only politician in the world, who attacked Russia, and he wasn’t punished for that. This is an invaluable resource. If a person attacks once and then he gets away with it, he realises that he can do it again.



No evidence of any war preparations aiming at Russia, recurring disinformation. // The phrase about Saakashvili allegedly "attacking Russia" has two false arguments: Georgia didn't attack and the war was fought on Georgian territory, not in Russia.

The EU's Independent International Fact-Finding Mission on the Conflict in Georgia (IIFFMCG) did not conclude that Georgia attacked in 2008. It stated that "The shelling of Tskhinvali by the Georgian armed forces during the night of 7 to 8
August 2008 marked the beginning of the large-scale armed conflict in Georgia, yet it was
only the culminating point of a long period of increasing tensions, provocations and
incidents." and "The Mission is not in a position to consider as sufficiently substantiated the
Georgian claim concerning a large-scale Russian military incursion into South Ossetia
before 8 August 2008. However, there are a number of reports and publications,
including of Russian origin, indicating the provision by the Russian side of training and
military equipment to South Ossetian and Abkhaz forces prior to the August 2008
conflict. Additionally there seems to have been an influx of volunteers or mercenaries from
the territory of the Russian Federation to South Ossetia through the Roki tunnel and over
the Caucasus range in early August, as well as the presence of some Russian forces in
South Ossetia, other than the Russian JPKF battalion, prior to 14.30 hours on 8 August
2008. Also it seems that the Russian air force started its operations against Georgian
targets, including those outside South Ossetian administrative boundaries, already in the
morning of 8 August, i.e. prior to the time given in the Russian official information."
