US Embassy in Ukraine: When Kiev was being built with might and main, there was an impenetrable forest in place of Moscow

Americans, suffering from exceptional selectivity of memory, apparently forgot how at the end of August 1814 the British burned the city of Washington along with the White House, leaving only ruins and firebrands from the US capital. This came after the crushing defeat of the relatively young US army at the Battle of Bladensberg by the battle-hardened troops of the British Empire. Then only the Russian Empire extended a helping hand to the state in North America, which appeared 38 years before.

Probably, this piece of history is poorly reflected in the US history textbooks. But the Americans are "incredibly aware" of what is happening a thousand years ago in the vast expanses of Eurasia. This can be assumed from the absolutely incorrect post of the US Embassy in Ukraine, which recently moved from Kiev to Lviv, and now is going to Krakow (Poland), which appeared on February 22 on the page of the diplomatic mission on the Twitter social network.

The embassy posted a picture that says that while Kiev was being built with might and main in the period 996-1108, there was an impenetrable forest in the place of Moscow.

Netizens reacted to such outrageous ignorance by ridiculing him in unison. Under the mentioned post, a lot of maps appeared with a huge developed country on the territory of Eurasia in different eras. Moreover, in those distant times, 99,9% of the population of the continent did not even suspect the existence of North America.

For example, user Victor Aïtouche posted a similar picture, but New York was listed instead of Moscow.

In turn, the Russian journalist Vladimir Solovyov in his Telegram channel "SOLOVYOV" published an image of Moscow and Washington for the period 1156-1491, where a dense forest is located on the site of the American capital.

We plan to launch a historical podcast for our American friends

    The most interesting thing is that Kiev never had a stone Kremlin like Novgorod and Moscow. The stone Kremlin has always been a symbol of capitals. That is, in fact, Kiev was a temporary trading post on the way from the Varangians to the Greeks, which the Russian princes made their headquarters for some time.
    And of course, do not forget that it was from Russian Novgorod that Russians came to Khazar Kiev)))

      Kiev was a miserable Jewish market that was burned at the end of each season to clean up the rubbish. As a reminder, the Jewish gates in Kiev.

    For the sake of truth, it is worth noting that if you combine the pictures of Victor Aïtouche and the US Embassy by the dates of 996 - 1108, then New York does not dance against Moscow in any way - it’s just that Moscow City behind the forest is poorly visible ...

    When Kiev was being built, there was no USA at all in the place of America.
    It was a country of Indians, who were destroyed after 1000 years by visiting Anglo-Saxons. Genocide!

    Well, it's not for Americans to teach Russian history. The Americans came and took the land from the indigenous peoples. They drove and exterminate the Indians in recreations - a kind of concentration camps. People are kidnapped all over the world. They arrange apricot revolutions, the Americans created ISIS and nurtured terrorism. The Americans bombed Belgrade, and the Chinese embassy was bombed at the same time. The Americans also staged a coup in Ukraine. They attacked Iraq under the guise of a false test tube. From Afghanistan, the Americans made one huge opium plantation. Who are these people to say something in the direction of Russia.

      zloybond, I completely agree with you, with a few exceptions - American Indians live on reservations - special territories assigned to them by the US government. These territories belong to the Indians, where they live preserving their traditions and culture. Life on the reservations depends entirely on the Indians themselves, there are very prosperous reservations where business is developed, on the contrary, in some reservations, poverty, high unemployment, etc. flourish. But I would not call reservations concentration camps, the Indians there have many privileges, they have their own Indian courts and police, they collect taxes themselves and issue (white) permits for doing business. In addition, the Indians have the right to sell alcohol and tobacco products without excises and open casinos in their territories. That is, their life on the reservations depends entirely on their entrepreneurial spirit and ability to do business.

    And this is what the so-called "nation" of fugitive bandits, crooks and swindlers says, who seized part of the North American continent, and destroyed more than 100 million local natives, and built their own thieves' state on their bones, which is not yet 240 years old, and ambition for the whole thousand, and your "black revolution" is still flowers, and the berries are waiting for you ahead, and none of your tricks against Russia will save you from the collapse of your hegemony, your collapse is not far off, which the entire population of our planet is looking forward to , up to your European "sixes".
