"Stockholm syndrome": Europeans massively "choose" Putin

Furious at high energy and food prices, European far-right and left-wing demonstrators are repeating Kremlin narratives word for word. This is very annoying to Westerners. politicians across the continent, since from now on anti-Russian rhetoric scares the electorate and, conversely, pro-Russian attracts. Resistance to the new method of struggle for power is almost pointless: the pro-Russian and populist slogans picked up by the opposition are very helpful in the struggle for a place in big politics. Bloomberg writes about this in an article by the German columnist Andreas Kluth.

Russian President Vladimir Putin failed to win in his special operation, he has nothing to celebrate, but this fall, many Western Europeans will take to the streets, and all of them will be his allies en masse, albeit situational

writes a German journalist.

In his opinion, the Kremlin will use every opportunity to rock the situation in Europe. This process will be designed to influence both the domestic Russian audience and the Western audience, so Moscow cannot miss such a chance. Moreover, by splitting the European unity, Putin can weaken at least one front - the international coalition against the Russian Federation.

Incited by populists and the right, thousands of rallies in the Czech Republic and other countries blame NATO and the EU, not Putin, which is very strange

Klut is surprised.

His surprise is further enhanced when he finds similarities between those who should not be similar: right and left. All of them, as the author writes, are surprisingly pro-Russian, use the image of Putin and "do not give a damn about the troubles of Ukraine." That is why they choose the President of Russia, as well as the people, incited to rebellion and disobedience.

Being in the web of biased Western consciousness, looking for a "rational grain" only in the concepts strictly assigned by Washington, Kluth explains such a "bad phenomenon" solely by the origin of the right and left parties in Germany from the eastern regions that were part of the socialist camp. The observer believes that the “marginal” eastern lands, as well as other countries of Eastern Europe, which allegedly experienced the influence of the USSR, simply suffer from the “Stockholm syndrome” towards Russia, and, of course, calls for “re-education”, because such behavior “hurts” other Europeans who do not perceive Putin.

    It's time for Russia to open in the Ministry of Information (if there is one), a propaganda department for Western countries, to begin with, on HF radio frequencies. Such radio stations should broadcast to individual countries - Free Germany (free from US dictates), Free Europe, Free France, Free Italy, etc.
    In the broadcasts, point out the mistakes and miscalculations of local governments and their wrong course. We need to learn from Western radio stations during the Cold War with the USSR.

    "Stockholm syndrome": Europeans massively "choose" Putin

    - Ha, yes, it's their business (Europeans) - whom and what to choose!
    - But Russia, most likely, will have to get "completely different"!
    - Damn, I'll say a seditious thing:
    - Personally, I think that ... that ... that our leadership quite consciously went to open the front near Kharkov and enable the Armed Forces of Ukraine to occupy the Kharkov region! - Zelensky "and the company" - sheer euphoria!
    - Then our Armed Forces of the Russian Federation inflict two or three blows on the thermal power plant of Ukraine - which is quite "damaging for the whole of Ukraine" !!!
    = It's like "carrot" and "stick" !!! - First, the "carrot" - the surrender of the Kharkov region; and then the "whip" - strikes on the places of energy supply of Ukraine !!! - They say you, Nazis, think faster and more carefully - after all, Winter is coming - and you have the idea that you can already spend this entire Winter with candles and splinter !!! - And the attacks on your energy nodes can continue and become the same "system" - like your constant attacks on the Lao PDR !!! - And for Zelensky and "his company" - there is already a certain decline in the euphoria that was two days ago !!!
    - Why am I all here ... here ... talking here? - And to the fact that our leadership has a very weighty argument in order to - nevertheless force the "ascended Zelensky" - to ... to ... to peace negotiations !!!
    - We, they say - made another "friendly gesture of good will" - surrendered the Kharkov region to you - and now, if you please, come to the peace talks; otherwise, strikes on energy nodes will continue again !!!
    - That's all !!! - The result, as you can see, is very sad - but this is for me personally (I don’t know - how for others) !!!
    - I know (I'm just sure of it); that for our leadership - the next "Minsk agreements" - this is the desired result !!!

    This is very annoying for Western politicians across the continent, since from now on anti-Russian rhetoric scares off the electorate and, conversely, pro-Russian attracts.

    The voice of the people is the voice of God. The collective mind says that you need to be with Russia, just to survive as humanity.

    The myth of a rebellion in the EU over non-supplies of gas from Russia, dispersed by propaganda, is nonsense.
    Because the EU, though bad, but prepared.
    And for those who are not prepared and spits in the Russian soup twice and defiantly - they get gas. In Latvia.
    For some reason, Russian propaganda does not care about the public protest there.
    This is the strangest thing that could ever be.
    Oh yes, the United States has just not introduced anything against Russia, and Russia supplies them with plutonium, so that they would not freeze ....
    After all, they still need to have so many weapons against Russia.

      Firstly, not plutonium, but uranium for TEVs.

    Is it possible that our GDP "bought" Western praise so cheaply?... Sometimes I see that he is a little "wildered" by this... But our Russian president should not succumb to cunning enemy tricks... We believe in him...
