Top senator says West paints Russia as hostile only for own internal purposes
The image of hostile Russia has been invented by NATO generals and Western spin doctors for internal purposes and has little to do with reality, Russian Upper House chair has said at a recent political conference.
NATO members think that the alliance guarantees their security, but their strategic mistake is in putting an equation mark between themselves and Europe. In a bloc-based security model, what provides security for one country inevitably becomes a threat for others and security on someone else’s expense,” chair of the Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko said in her speech at the Primakov Readings international think tank.
NATO is a relic from the bipolar period of history that by definition cannot survive without looking for opponents. Today they found this opponent in the so-called ‘Russian threat’ and I would like to emphasize that the so-called ‘hostile’ and ‘revisionist’ Russia is not an objective reality but purely internal project of the West itself through which the West is trying to solve its own internal problems,” the official was quoted as saying by RIA Novosti.
The Russian parliamentarian noted that the new political setup in the world called for new rules of interaction between major centers of power, without any dictate or ideas of “civilization supremacy” and exceptionalism.
She also said that currently the information aspects of confrontation between nations are often shadowing the actual facts and described the situation as 'dangerous'.
“This is a dangerous process when the very reality is being tailored to fit all possible interpretations. There are specialists who can supply the necessary 'facts', 'pictures' and 'eyewitnesses’ accounts,' whole organizations that produce fakes in batches and conduct presumably independent investigations on the basis of pictures and videos found on the internet,” Matviyenko said.
Sometimes we are the last to know that we have allegedly committed an act of aggression against someone. Moreover, we cannot guess when Russia will launch its new alleged attacks,” she joked.
This is not the first time the Russian senator blamed the current crisis in international relations on Western attempts to maintain the dominant position in the world through the so called “export of democracy.”
In mid-2017, Matviyenko told the Parlamentskaya Gazeta daily that Western countries used various means of political and economic pressure; they launched color revolutions and even direct military invasions. "As far as the export of democracy is concerned, it only brings other peoples chaos, disasters and wars," she said.

Geert Mak Pleit Nu Voor Vriendschap met Rusland

Ik kwam zojuist mijn oude vriend, de bestseller-auteur en mainstream-opiniemaker Geert Mak in de regen op straat tegen. Na elkaar te hebben begroet, vertelde Geert mij dat hij van oordeel is dat Europa zo snel mogelijk met Rusland om de tafel moet gaan zitten, om de opgelopen spanningen te deëscaleren. De VS heeft heel andere belangen dan 'wij,' aldus Mak, die benadrukte dat de macht van 'onze' Atlantische bondgenoot ingrijpend aan het afnemen is. Kortom, ik hoorde wat ikzelf al enige jaren op mijn weblog schrijf. Opvallend hoe een Nederlandse opiniemaker binnen zo'n betrekkelijk korte tijd zo wezenlijk van oordeel kan veranderen.  Immers, Mak’s gevaarlijke anti-Rusland hetze was een treffend voorbeeld van zijn opportunisme. Mei 2014 beweerde op de Hilversumse televisie de zogeheten ‘chroniqueur van Amsterdam, Nederland, Europa en de VS,’ dat er sprake was van een 'Russische gevaar,’ aangezien ‘meneer Poetin’ aan ‘landjepik’ deed en dat de Russische president d…

Native American Rape Survivors

A sign marks the entrance to White Earth Indian Reservation in Mahnomen County, Minn. (J. Stephen Conn / CC 2.0) WHITE EARTH RESERVATION, Minn.—Candice (not her real name) awoke with a start. Someone was pulling down her sweatpants. It was a male friend. “Stop!” she shouted. He kept groping her. She kicked him and he fell off the bed. She dashed out of the bedroom, tripping and tumbling down the stairs. Gripped with fear, she heard his footsteps behind her in the dark and forced herself to stand upright as she staggered out to the porch. Candice was still intoxicated. She got into her car and drove into a ditch. A white police officer pulled up. She struggled to hold back tears as she told him about the attempted rape. All the officer saw was a drunk and disorderly Native American woman. He dismissed Candice’s report of sexual assault as a lie she had made up to avoid getting a DUI. He did not take her to the hospital for a forensic exam. The sexual assault was not recorded in his pol…
