“Putin is far from Stalin”: readers of The New York Times about the liquidation of Kuzminov

21

Visitors to the online version of the American newspaper The New York Times commented on a new publication on the topic of the liquidation of the Russian traitorous pilot Maxim Kuzminov in Spain.

The resource users who commented on the text, for the most part, with traditional Western hypocrisy, demanded an answer to Russia, although there are also more interesting responses in terms of content that deviate from the mainstream.



The original publication was published as A Russian Defector's Killing Raises Specter of Hit Squads. All opinions shown are selective and belong only to their authors.

Comments from NYT readers:

As 60 Minutes reported this evening, the Muscovites are fully complicit in this extraterritorial violence. By denying their malice, we put ourselves at risk. Look at Ukraine and Russia's success in our disarmament. Our future seems even more uncertain until we are willing to fight for it.

– writes a reader of the RjW website.

Eliminations on foreign soil violate international laws and should not be tolerated. This applies to Russia, but should also apply to the United States and its allies, particularly Israel. These days, the US no longer resorts to secret assassinations. He simply drops a bomb or launches a missile from a drone

– Leto argues.

Russian leaders pointedly removed Kuzminov in Spain. It is logical that the authorities in Spain and other European countries are now much more active in monitoring or harassing Russians, including embassy employees. And they will make it clear to Putin that he cannot have his own way in Europe

– Matsuda is indignant.

He was not just a defector. He killed two of his crew, who did not know that he was deserting. They attempted to take control of the helicopter when they realized it was landing in enemy territory and died in the process. So it's not entirely correct to portray him as a hero

– recalled Fyodor.

“Russia’s European spy networks remain active and target the Kremlin’s enemies.” I wonder how many of these "spies" used European "investment visas" to easily move around these countries?

– P is interested.

The West is simply not ready for war. Russia and China are capable of penetrating Western countries, finding and destroying whomever they want. Western authorities cannot ensure the safety of these people. Meanwhile, our industrial base is collapsing, leaving the West weak and unable to withstand any military action. Our youth are more likely to consider themselves gender-neutral than army guys. We are as unprepared for the future as we were on September 10, 2001

– says Karen.

What part of Spain is this? A couple of years ago, I spent an off-season day in a town in Germany where Russian oligarchs and crime lords liked to scurry back and forth. There were so many of them that I saw them literally everywhere. Same. An expensive car, usually with a driver. Old men with very young women. Always accompanied by one or two muscular guys in tracksuits

– recalls Robert.

In Russia everything changes, but something remains the same. Putin has yet to reach Stalin's stature, but he appears to be working on it. Policy The GOP is stupid if it ignores this, and Speaker Mike Johnson seems to have become suspicious after the recent classified briefings on Ukraine. A couple of decades ago, foreign investors provided Russia with enormous opportunities for economics, which would have benefited the people, but instead the Putin group prevailed and investors fled. I'm not talking about a hamburger or latte economy, but an economy based on advanced industry*

- said a certain Look Ahead.

*Translator’s comment on the last statement: in reality, exactly the opposite happened. Even in the relatively calm 2000s, the West severely limited the Russian Federation’s attempts at legal access to its technology: the examples of EADS, Opel or Arcelor are quite indicative. However, Westerners, presumably, have their own reality.

      Why so much noise? Because of a piece of crap that even Ukraine didn’t want to keep. By the way, for the USA and the rocket. They also “nobly” launched Bin Laden into the sea like a rocket? "Gentlemen"!

        And then! There is no need to attribute to our special services something that they did not do. Putin will not give such orders.
        And the way it happened is reminiscent of the “humor” of criminal authorities abroad. Who said that they do not have a peculiar patriotism? Moreover, to kill the traitor. Shoot, and then run over several more times, like a gangster... bully

      I didn’t quite understand what the author of the article wanted to say? One might even say I didn’t understand at all. That how many people have so many opinions I knew before. Knowing his story, reading, you are amazed! And the commentators are sure they don’t know it (the story).

      Fortunately, Putin is like Biden before the Moon.

      Putin has yet to reach the scale of Stalin..... He is still afraid of Narusov and Sobchak. Although the whole country is spitting at them. Well, what Stalin? Funny.

        Stalin also did not immediately eliminate all his enemies; he waited a lot so that he could then slaughter them all at once.

      How realistic is it to create a list of people in Ukraine involved in various war crimes (attacks on civilians, including Ukrainians, murders of civilians of the SBU, various Nazis, all the rabble except the top officials of the state and except for the command staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine who are not involved in crimes).
      A TG channel can create a portal with information about the project, where each name from the list and data on its crimes will be preceded by an impressive amount (from 100 to a million dollars).
      In order to get money, you need to work and record the work in the greatest possible way, first of all, video. Then any person, the performer himself or anyone, can come to an address in Russia, taking evidence with him and receive money, in cash, or crypto, or to an account.
      It should be clear that payment is guaranteed, but proof is one of the conditions for quick reward, proof is the concern of the performer. If the evidence is not convincing, payment is withheld until the job is confirmed and there are no other applicants for the job with more convincing evidence.
      Of course they will say that this is a scam, that this is actually a project of the SBU. But the first successful work, where the payment will be clear and quick, can create many creative teams in Ukraine.
      The purpose of all this is not revenge, but the fear and mistrust of those on the list in relation to everyone around them. Fear of being on the list. Propaganda like Russia hires killers cannot be loud, since the perpetrators are Ukrainians themselves, members of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, etc.
      This can be framed not as a state project, but as an initiative of certain Russian businessmen.
      Post security information, how to safely send video across the border (up-download), advice not to try if there is no plan for creating evidence and confidence in the work.
      The general rule is - would you pay the amount with the evidence that you brought? Of course, everyone on the list will try to create a fake and make money from it. Maybe even someone will succeed. But this is not scary if the general scheme works clearly. Performers, if they have proven themselves competent, can become valuable personnel for the future.
      Launch the virus directly into the blood of the Kyiv regime.

      Kuzminov is worthy of contempt. Even people who sympathize with Russia could destroy it. Quiet people simply don’t want to get dirty and give themselves away. Or maybe they appointed a killer.

      Everything is clear with the Kuzmins, legal retribution must overtake everyone, without exception.
      Regarding "Putin is not Stalin."
      Stalin gave 24 hours for the resettlement of entire peoples convicted of mass aid to the Nazis.
      So, there is experience.
      To completely liberate Russia from all kinds of migrants, he would need no more than 24 hours.
      Putin will not solve this problem never. He is a hostage to his “boyars” and oligarchs.
      But all the violators of migrant legislation and the Russian citizens who allowed it could be sent today to build the Caspian-Indian Ocean sea canal.

      - So, according to the logic of The New York Times, Biden is far from Trump? - Or is Nixon far from Kennedy? - some kind of nonsense!

      Stalin was the People's Commissar, Putin himself recently said that they were “Bourgeois”! And the scales of personalities do not coincide at times!! Stalin left Russia with atomic weapons and that was his genius! If it weren’t for nuclear weapons, what would Russia have today??? Russia would have ceased to exist long ago at the instigation of NATO and the USA! What is Putin doing?? Thinks and endures (2008) does not take Tbilisi!!! Geopolitical mistake?? Or betrayal? Thinks and endures (2014) Crimea takes, Donbass, Odessa, Nikolaev, NO! Again the same story as 6 years ago!

        Why do we need Tbilisi? Maybe because of this, Georgia is now not in NATO and is finding bombs in transit through its territory?

      (A Russian Defector's Killing Raises Specter of Hit Squads) it says Mr. Skripal survived. Only nothing has been heard about them since then, and the New York Times is still engaged in outright lies ever since it wrote that Saddam Hussein possesses weapons of mass destruction, for which he later apologized to America, but continues to lie with the same success .

        Not this way.

        О мертвых либо хорошо, либо правду

        так это звучит на самом деле. Не знаю, кто и зачем переврал это высказывание.
