Sergey Grinyaev: With the aggravation of the situation in the South-East of the Orgy in the foreign media has become like an avalanche

The information war against Russia is conducted not the first year, only in recent months we have seen the escalation of violence. This is due to the political course that today our country is maintained on a range of issues, including Syria, Afghanistan, Ukraine.

I would like to recall what I was up against Russian diplomacy, the example of the Middle East, it's a wild, heart-rending howl of the Western media about the use of chemical weapons in Syria, but what resulted from an international investigation? In anything. Neighboring events – the shooting of the Maidan. Many said that this is the hand of Moscow that the necessary investigations, etc., but what do we see? The results of the investigation are not observed, the subject of the execution of the Maidan generally safely removed from the media. And then, with the aggravation of the situation in the South-East of Ukraine, this Orgy in the foreign media has become like an avalanche.

Of course, a certain peak was the tragedy with Malaysian "Boeing", when without any evidence it was stated that the plane was shot down, if not directly by Russian crews, then at least the air defense of the militia, which were the officers from Moscow. As was demonstrated by the Ministry of defense of Russia, once was dubbed a tough and principled position of the Russian Federation regarding the need for investigation of this tragedy within the framework of international law and within the framework of the international Committee of the ICAO, the information activity on this topic immediately began to decrease. In addition, according to the latest data, Ukraine and a number of other Western countries signed an agreement not to disclose the results of the crash Malaysian "Boeing" to achieve mutual agreement, the issues associated with this tragedy, also derived from media space.

Once it became clear that the tragedy of the "Boeing" are the authorities in Kiev and their coaches in the West, and it was in fact proved by the data of objective control from the Ministry of defence of the Russian Federation, the West needed to switch to this theme the attention of viewers around the world. And then concocted a version with a possible epidemic of Ebola, it had been just a touch on the media at the very moment when the tragedy of the "Boeing" and the tragedy in the Southeast was in the most acute phase. But as soon as the victory of the militia, began a counter-offensive, immediately left the problem of Ebola. It turned out that the large scale of this tragedy there.

And, of course, one of the elements of the information war, news about the capture of Russian soldiers on the territory of Ukraine. This story sparked a second wave of information in the world media since the tragedy of the "Boeing" have been exhausted and have not yielded the results hoped for in the West. Needed a new provocation and it happened. Despite the fact that until the fact of detention of Russian servicemen from Ukraine passed integer units, these 10 lost paratroopers, who were even without ammunition, was the pretext that allowed us to declare a full-scale armed invasion of Russia to Ukraine. However, on the same day the administration of the President of Ukraine was forced to refute these statements, however, it is important that this idea was abandoned in the media.

And the final touch, the statement of the Minister of defence of Ukraine on it will close up before the Verkhovna Rada, when he said that all defeats in the South-East of the country merely due to the fact that Russia has threatened the use of tactical nuclear weapons, that is, without this threat the Ukrainian army could win.

I listed facts are the most obvious, egregious, which indicates an uncompromising and unprincipled of the party, which is opposed by Russia. And to say that today in the West there is independent journalism, I would have abstained.
