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Here's my letter to the Independent newspaper(unpublished).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

Certainly readers already know that the Prosecutor's Office of Nanterre has ordered that Marine Le Pen, secretary of the Rassemblement National (former FN) and parliamentary to the Assembly, be submitted to psychiatric examination.
