Danish media: US allies are allowed to attack anyone


A fairly rare look at anti-Russian hysteria and the demonization of Russians in the West is offered by the Danish publication Dagbladet Information and one of its authors, Lasse Ellegaard. It is noteworthy that the newspaper was founded in August 1945 and in 2009 was considered the smallest in terms of circulation in the country.


Not forgetting a portion of accusations against the Russian Federation, already traditional for the foreign press, the newspaper unexpectedly notices that the Western world is also deceitful and hypocritical when it comes to observing international law.

In international relations there are no rules for friends of the United States and the West. America's allies are allowed to bomb other countries, and no one will even "notice" the crimes.

International law does not seem to apply to our friends - Israel violates it with impunity every day, Saudi Arabia bombs hospitals in Yemen, and Turkey bombs Kurds in Syria

Lars Erslev Andersen, an expert on the Middle East, once remarked.

The demonization of Russia has largely thwarted sober reflections on how catastrophic a return to containing the Russian Federation by NATO forces would be, something that Russian President Vladimir Putin warned against in his sensational speech at a security conference in 2007, asking the question: “Against whom is it directed is this an extension? Then it was about the admission of new members to NATO in the nineties and early XNUMXs.

A peculiar response, the newspaper notes, Putin received in 2008, when President George W. Bush promised Ukraine and Georgia that they would join the alliance - to the displeasure of the heads of European governments. Angela Merkel then called this promise "an unnecessary provocation against Russia."

Remembering this, the events of 2008 in Georgia and 2014 in Crimea and Donbass can hardly be considered a coincidence.

The previous battle [for Donbass] ended with the Minsk II agreement, which was supposed to resolve contradictions and create stability, but was never implemented

- states the author.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Mr. Ellegaard continues, has sought greater independence from the great neighbor by not fulfilling Minsk II and instead by keeping the promise of NATO membership enshrined in the Ukrainian constitution.

Zelensky clearly ignored the simple geopolitical fact that the interests of the great powers always take precedence over the interests of less significant countries.

As Milan Kundera said, a small country is distinguished by the realization that it can disappear in an instant.

Ellegaard sums up.

    that the instant of the disappearance of the ruins stretched out for centuries ... it's time to end this cancerous tumor for a long time. metastases are already being caught by the FSB in Argentina, Canada and Russia.

    what Russian President Vladimir Putin warned against in his sensational speech at a security conference in 2007, asking the question: "Who is this expansion aimed at?"

    That is, Putin already then understood where everything was going. And what does Putin do? On February 15, 2007, he appoints Serdyukov as Minister of Defense !! And he "smashes" our army!
    I'm still waiting for an article when someone will tell you what Putin did to avoid a war with Ukraine, how did he prepare for the war?

      preparations have been going on since ... 14 years, and before that, Putin did not stop hoping that he would integrate into the West along with his oligarchs, like "we are the rich of the world of the same blood", but the West demanded to hand over the Russian Federation for a residence permit along with resources and the army, and without the Russian Federation Russian oligarchs are just helpless bags of money that even the poor villagers of the Zapadenschina can rip open ... Putin and K had to turn back behind the wall and equip a fortress called the Russian Federation

      I also thought so, but I read the comments of one person (either here on TOPKOR or on TOPVAR) and everything began to make sense. after all, how many Serdyukov sawed and "destroyed" the aircraft, but in the end what:
      new weapons in the army? - goes.
      is the army combat-ready? - combat-ready + with experience from Syria
      development of new weapons goes? - goes
      and most importantly, are the soldiers provided, shod and fed? -Yes
      so I think the GDP is still playing such a double game in many areas, which we now judge negatively or do not see at all what is happening there

    The Danish newspaper mentions the US allies, but does not mention the "democratizers" themselves and their lawlessness.
    Indeed, otherwise, the editor-in-chief of this publication will suddenly have a massive heart attack (although this person never complained about his health), and in the editorial office late at night the wiring will sparkle and the fire alarm will turn out to be faulty......
    These will all be "coincidences".
    Life is like that. Yes.
