Kremlin Lies Department
I must repeat the last paragraph of this El Murid’s post here:
about the meanness of Putin
The President of the country actually encouraged millions of people, guaranteeing them absolute protection – and easily forgets his words, throwing our people into the furnace of war, indifferently watching mass killings of Russian population of Donbass and Southern Ukraine. And absolutely not afraid that in the end will be recognized as an accomplice of the Nazis, who had unleashed carnage and genocide.
Culture of deception

– “The interview of Colonel-General Alexander Dvornikov, “the Russian newspaper”, in which he reported that he commanded the Russian army group in Syria, and also reported about the participation of our troops in ground operations, in fact, only confirmed that, and so was known. And once again demonstrated that Russia’s leadership is not ashamed to lie to their own people.
In October, President Putin said that the Russian military involvement in ground fighting in Syria is excluded. The presence of ground units have not been contested, and it was clear what they really do – the protection and defense of airfields. However, last year, there appeared photos of Russian artillery and the whole columns of Russian equipment, so the send messages to and from other places with a very high degree of confidence could be interpreted as the presence of just regular, not volunteer units of the Russian military. Now announced the availability of special operations forces. Apparently, soon to be recognized the existence of combined arms units.
One to one repeats the situation in Crimea: first definitive treatment in “cheating” and the direct answer is that we didn’t do it, then (after a year) recognition that “little green men” were precisely those who were the Russian military.
In General, it’s not that the Kremlin took the decision to participate the army in a particular conflict or event, in the end, she and the power to use the available tools to solve problems. Another question. Created culture total lie, when the President did not hesitate to lie to their populations, even in seemingly correct actions. And the population is thus warmly endorses and knowingly explains itself, why it is gladly swallows the lie and hanging noodles on the ears.
There is a simple rule for policy – can’t tell the truth – so at least don’t tell lies. It’s your job to invent explanations and to leave from direct answers. But an outright lie is unacceptable. Not least because if we lie in one, there is no guarantee that you will not lie in another, and on another occasion. And the more lies, the more reason to suspect the lie, and to question everything. Oh, and also, if you cheat, you are beyond retarded, which in itself is offensive.
However, the style of communication with the people was formed – the lie becomes official ideology. To be shy no one is going once swallowed one, and even with smacking, why stop?
Current practice emphasizes the absurdity and archaism in modern Russia: the classic Eastern despotism, where the ruler is completely independent from the people and views it only as another resource. The people absolutely normally takes this situation and allows you to lie to him further.
Nothing harmless in this situation. In Ukrainian jails are our citizens and other people who defended the interests of our country, and in such status quo are not interested no more. The President of the country actually encouraged millions of people, guaranteeing them absolute protection – and easily forgets his words, throwing our people into the furnace of war, indifferently watching mass killings of Russian population of Donbass and Southern Ukraine. And absolutely not afraid that in the end will be recognized as an accomplice of the Nazis, who had unleashed carnage and genocide. False covers and cover these crimes, raising them to normal. To call it harmless with this background.
