There is plenty of it everywhere. And surprisingly co-ordinated. One wonders who is holiding the reins.

No doubt I will be sanctioned just for saying so.

As I said, the German press at least has not followed this path and this is good. I am sure in France, Italy and Spain it might be the same…namely that not everyone swallows the US/EU/Nato
narrative on Ukraine.

But also the Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Economist, Newsweek, Times, Reuters, Agence France Presse, Euobserver.com, Daily Beast, Time, Christian Science Monitor, Vice news, International Business Times, Yahoo, Politico, Bloomberg and many more…

One could equally blame the EU media of unanimously following the US/Nato narrative on this and say that the putsch which took place in Kiev was not one carried out by nationalist and fascist right-wing Ukrainians closely supervised by the US.

While the Russian media is certainly biased, it is somewhat foolish to pretend that the EU is any different. The so-called ‘left-wing’ Guardian has become a paid US messenger with constant and completely pathetic anti-Russian and anti-Putin hysteria. The UK is the centre of this pro-US media slant. In Germany, newspapers still mostly have their own opinions.
