Paul Michaels: UK media hypocrisy

Dear Pravda.ru,
The London Independent, like The Guardian and The BBC have never condemned terrorist atrocities on Russians. In the middle of immense tragedy, they play their anti-Russian politics. BBC TV, Independent TV and Channel 4 (UK) describe these genocidal maniacs as "hostage-takers, demanding independence for Chechnya".

Here's my letter to the Independent newspaper(unpublished). Thank you.

Dear Sir,
Whatever the rights and wrongs on the ground in Chechnya (and it must be recognised that it was Chechen terrorists who started to kidnap, torture and murder in 1993 during a period of democratic openness under Yeltsin) there is absolutely no excuse for the Independent and other newspapers not to condemn these murderous atrocities. Whatever their shortcomings, elections in Chechnya are the way forward and it is again incomprehensible why the Independent (August 31 editorial) should be so strongly opposed to them.

Yours sincerely

Paul Michaels

The Wall Street Journal reported that the Trump regime "sought options to strike Iran," falsely saying it may pursue a course no previous US leadership considered. More on this below.

In response to the unlawful December 1 arrest and detention of Chinese tech giant Huawei's chief financial officer Sabrina Meng Wanzhou by Canadian authorities in Vancouver at the behest of the Trump regime, facing possible unacceptable extradition to the US, Beijing warned its high-tech personnel last month against traveling to America unless it's essential.
