Sorry to butt in here but I have found Stepan's posts rather enlightening as to some of the thinking coming out of Russia and the level of propaganda they must be subject to.This is a warning. You have already been advised by another Super Moderator about your postings. This is a multinational forum and we do not have anytime for country bashing and politics. You are doing both. If you do not immediately substantially improve your posting behaviour, you will no longer be welcome here.
What Stepen does not seem to realise is that the western media are not owned, controlled or in anyway beholding to their respective governments and can say what they like, when they like, irrespective if whether the government likes it or not and that taking the government to task when things are not wright is all part and parcel of our democracy and that anything can be critiqued at any time.
Stepan; Russian TV is freely available in the West so we can get their side of the story.
