  • Russian media spinning

    Again,

    This time with relation to the joint air exercise by USA (based at Estonia), Sweden and Finland over the Baltic Sea some time in this spring. What makes this extraordinarily funny is how it is relayed.

    Finnish (and Swedish) media publicly noted that the exercise had been approved and that the aircraft would operate from their own airfields - statement issued on 6 February 2015.

    Russian ambassadors (or their reps) requested more information on the exercises on 9 February 2015. And were handled the same press releases that were given to the media three days earlier.

    Russian media conclusion: Russian demands made on 9 February 2015 forced Sweden and Finland to abandon their plans to use the ─mńri airbase in Estonia for the exercise... So never mind that the decision not to use ─mńri base had nothing to do with Russian ambassador but it makes for a better spin and more nationalistic story.

      • I greatly bemoan this horrible media spin, which is absolutely unprecedented in the whole world. Never have the media of the Free World of Democratic Elves ever published anything even remotely close to this bottomless abyss of horrendous lies, which stares at us from this blood-chilling report. I believe we should start a separate subforum for this monstrous brainwashing campaign.

        • It's annoying that time and energy has to be spent on debunking not JUST Russian media spin — if it was limited to just that — the important bit is that now the Russian diplomatic corps is in on it as well.

          If Russians want to play dumb about it all, that's their prerogative.

                Don't worry. Annexing Finland would be an excellent thing for organising mass executions by excruciating boredom and the worst coffee on planet.

                • Russia's already picked the fight here. No one made it do it. Russia wants conflict, so Russia gets conflict.

                    Given that Finns prefer solitude and silence while drinking more coffee per capita than any other nation on earth you would be only making Finns happy with that plan.

                          Who said it would be a punishment for the Finns? Punishing Finns with boredom and blandness is like threatening BDSM people with flogging

                          Considering the kind of coffee the Finns drink, and I've been to several dozen Finnish cafes/restaurants in different towns, this is hardly an achievement. Unless you're under the illusion that drip brewed "kahvi" which tastes like water in badly washed espresso cups can pass for coffee anywhere.

                              These are not secret photos. Well document and known fact that the glorious soviet partisans mostly targeted women and children.
