There seems to be no end to the lengths the western governments and mainstream media will go to paint Russia and /or Putin in a bad light. The latest is to blame President Putin for the death of Alexander Litvinenko in 2006. Litvinenko was poisoned with radioactive material polonium 210. The British government inquiry held in Britain with a British judge came to the conclusion that the head of Russia’s federal security service (FSB) Mr Patrushev, and President Putin ‘probably approved ‘an intelligence operation to murder Litvinenko. Mr Litvinenko’s widow said “I’m very pleased that the words my husband spoke on his deathbed when he accused Mr Putin of his murder have been proved true in an English court”.
It is no doubt very sad that Mrs Litvinenko lost her husband but I don’t think probably doing something is proof or proven true.
The ABC news reporters (teleprompter readers) even implied Russia acted illegally in the annexation of Crimea, the MH17 downing, and Ukraine after the story was aired. Obviously they only read the news and don’t know what’s really happening out there.
I don’t think citizens of a certain area voting 95.7% in a referendum to leave a dying country and be looked after by their original country is illegal. The Crimea was a part of Russia for 200 years prior to 1954. Ukraine is now a basket case so the people of Crimea were right in choosing Russia over Ukraine.
The MH17 report by the Dutch Safety Board (DSB) came up with no blame but tends to implicate Russia. The extensive reports by Russia have suggested that the DSB investigation was flawed and politically motivated.
Russia also gets the blame for the Ukraine coup led by the US. Remember Victoria Nuland’s leaked phone call discussing Ukraine and who will be Prime Minister? Also there is the footage of her handing out cookies to the Ukrainian protestors. I didn’t see any footage of Russians meddling there and handing out cookies.
So whilst we slowly wait for the US Empire to fall we have to put up with this sort of blame game just as the US are blaming China for all the global economies failing. The US will blame anything and everything on their collapse except the Federal Reserve’s policy of propping up markets and falsely raising asset prices with quantitative easing (QE).
