USA | Leaked Descriptions Of Infamous “Russia Ads” Derail Collusion Narrative “They Showed Support For Clinton”

That was quick.

Less than a week after Facebook agreed to turn over to Congressional investigators copies of the 3,000-odd political advertisements that the company said it had inadvertently sold to a Russia-linked group intent on meddling in the 2016 presidential election, the contents of the ads have – unsurprisingly – leaked, just as we had expected them to.

USA | U.S.-NATO Stirring Up Trouble Along Russian Borders

by Bruce K. Gagnon

The New York Times, that helped sell George W. Bush’s needless and illegal ‘shock and awe’ attack on Iraq in 2003, is now working to vilify Putin and create the pretext for war with Russia.

In a story headlined Russia’s Military Drills Near NATO Border Raise Fears of Aggression the NYT misleads with the title itself, even before you begin to read the article.  What is a NATO border?  Is NATO a country now with legally defined borders?  Does NATO suppose that where ever it decides to put a base or hold military drills that it has the right to declare itself a sovereign nation?

Russia | Thanks for Trump

On April 3, a terrorist attack was carried out in the St. Petersburg metro, 11 people were killed.
On April 7, political scientist Vyacheslav Nikonov, speaking on the TV channel “Russia-1”, announced: “They want us to be scared. We will not be afraid. We will be united.”
“We will not be frightened”, “united” in front of terrorists – without any doubt. However, Nikonov, the grandson of Vyacheslav Molotov, was referring to the unity of all of Russia. Such a unity can not be. The poor are not united with the rich, workers are not united with bourgeoisie. Nikonov deceives the working people. We always explain this.
