К 70-летию Победы: битва за Москву | Global politics | Scoop.it
В сентябре 1941 года нацистские войска подошли к столице Советского Союза. Гитлер планировал захватить Москву до наступления холодов, однако Красная армия оказала упорное сопротивление.

Подробнее — корреспондент RT Нил Харви.

Сергей Нарышкин: Запад поощряет украинских националистов, поскольку видит в них антироссийскую силу

Сергей Нарышкин: Запад поощряет украинских националистов, поскольку видит в них антироссийскую силу | Global politics | Scoop.it
Соединённые Штаты и Евросоюз одобряют действия националистов на Украине, поскольку видят в них антироссийскую силу, заявил спикер Госдумы РФ Сергей Нарышкин. По его словам, в случае, если националистические движения окрепнут, это ударит по всем странам и изменит стиль мировой политики. Нарышкин выразил надежду, что торжества в честь 70-летия победы над фашизмом, которые пройдут в Москве 9 мая, «напомнят всем о великом мужестве и о героизме, об огромных жертвах человечества, о тех людях, кто свое

'Polish anti-Russian rhetoric scaremongering to remain in power'

'Polish anti-Russian rhetoric scaremongering to remain in power' | Global politics | Scoop.it
Increasingly anti-Russian rhetoric from Poland's president Bronisław Komorowski is mostly an effort to scare the population into re-electing him, Russia Insider international affairs editor Alexander Mercouris told RT.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

It is amazing that these politicians concentrate all their hatred and scaremongering on Russia, forgetting Germany's past and, of course, turning a blind eye on Ukraine's Bandera's glorification. Apparently so much anti-Russian rhetoric doesn't leave room available to remember Bandera's crimes against Poland, which left over 200,000 slaughtered. But rewriting history is not only fashionable in Ukraine, it is also in full swing in Poland, and many Poles prefer to deny it ever happened!

Putin blasts ‘cynical attempts to rewrite history’ at Russia-China WWII conference

Putin blasts ‘cynical attempts to rewrite history’ at Russia-China WWII conference | Global politics | Scoop.it
The Russian president has denounced any attempts to rehabilitate Nazism as immoral and dangerous in his message to the Russian-Chinese conference dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

In January, Putin spoke at the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center in Moscow and stated that another reason for political forces attempting to rewrite the history of WWII was the desire to hide one’s own disgrace, cowardice, hypocrisy and treachery, as well as the intent to justify the direct or indirect collaboration with Nazism.

Fort Russ: Russian Blogosphere Survey for May 6, 2015

Fort Russ: Russian Blogosphere Survey for May 6, 2015 | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:


Leshy makes a compelling argument that the US actions in Ukraine are to a large extent motivated by the desire to overcome its systemic economic crisis by "cannibalizing" its EU partner. Leshy goes so far as to compare the signing of the TTIP, in terms of importance, to the hoisting of the Red Banner above the Reichstag, because it would signify a total (though not necessarily final) victory in the quest to transform the EU from a partner into a vassal, trapped in a neocolonial cycle of dependency.

The Guardian утверждает, что российские СМИ замалчивают чеченское происхождение Джохара Царнаева, который обвиняется в организации теракта во время Бостонского марафона в 2013 году. По мнению британских журналистов, «пропагандистская машина Кремля» скрывает от россиян, что у Царнаева есть родственники на Северном Кавказе. Однако ведущая In the Now Анисса Науэй выяснила, что дело обстоит совсем не так, как его представляет британское издание.

Немецкие СМИ: С появлением «Арматы» Западу придётся срочно перевооружаться | Global politics | Scoop.it
Возможности российского танка Т-14 «Армата» беспрецедентны и западным странам придётся срочно модернизировать свои вооружённые силы, чтобы догнать Россию, пишут немецкие СМИ. Журналисты отмечают, что броню российского танка не способен пробить ни один из существующих на данный момент снарядов, при том что сам он обладает мощнейшей в мире пушкой. И, если Россия не будет держать свои инновации исключительно при себе, Западу придётся особенного нелегко в плане перевооружения.

Ukrainian political analyst’s call to ‘exterminate Russian reporters’ gets criminal probe

Ukrainian political analyst’s call to ‘exterminate Russian reporters’ gets criminal probe | Global politics | Scoop.it
Russian law enforcers have launched a criminal probe into the actions of a Ukrainian political scientist who reportedly called on the pro-Kiev military to “thoroughly exterminate” Russian journalists.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Big deal! The US army perpetrated an extermination action of non-enbedded journalists in Iraq, thus eliminatig uncomfortable witnesses. There are still criminal cases in a variety of courts. All the same, this guy, Romanenko, should be arrested at the first occasion and indicted for his call to hatred and murder. This sort of incitation may lead to extreme policies, as it was shown in Nazi Germany and more recently in the Rwanda genocide.
