Chain reactions, distortions and cheap propaganda that leads to war

Why is Lebedev promoting fear?

The Independent, British newspaper owned by Evgeny Lebedev almost copy paste an article published by the The Times in the USA falsifying statements made by General Sir Adrian Bradshaw, Deputy Commander of NATO. When we read what the independent has published we immediately contacted NATO headquarters to see if General Sir Adrian Bradshaw had actually said what The Independent said that he said.

A NATO spokesman indicated that it was a case of misreporting and it shows the extent of the campaign of disinformation carried out by Evgeny Lebedev's The Independent that apparently seeks to create a climate of fear.

We also contacted the FSB (Russian Security Services), the Russian Embassy in London and the Polish Embassy in London, apart from getting in touch with the newsdesk of The Independent to let them know that NATO and the Russian government is aware of the campaign of distortion carried out by Evgeny Lebedev (son of Russian oligarch Alexandr Lebedev).

Lebedev's The Independent lies about NATO statement











Series of Emails

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am sure that you remember the words of Adolf Hitler when he said that ‘Armies are made for war’. In the Russian psyche, NATO’s military build-up along the Russian borders reminds Russia of June 22, 1941, the beginning of Unternehmen Barbarossa and stirs up memories of a conflict that engulfed Poland.

Stirring up memories of a conflict that engulfed Poland will not make Poland safer and will not make Europe as a whole safer. It will only take one miscalculation, one human error, for millions of lives across Europe to be in mortal danger. Wars always begin with propaganda, diplomatic skirmishes and displays of military might to create enemies in the minds of ordinary people who are soon afterwards led to Hell on Earth.

For family reasons, World War Two is for me a very personal issue and I see animosity against the Russian Federation as the forerunner of yet another major European catastrophe. Driven by hatred, manipulated by the mass media, both politicians and ordinary people reach a point of no return and throw themselves over the edge.

I remember the USA’s reaction when missiles were sighted in Cuba, close to USA but far away from USA borders. We were on the brink of a major Nuclear Holocaust. What do you expect Russia to feel when missiles and military forces are deployed along the borders of the Russian Federation? Do you expect Russia to keep cool and do nothing about it? When Russia deploys missiles in Kaliningrad, Russia does so as preventative measure to send a clear message that Russia will not tolerate yet another Unternehmen Barbarossa.

Should any NATO member make a faux-pas, Poland will be the first country to suffer and this is why in order to prevent any faux pas, any catastrophe triggered by human error, the anti-Russian propaganda and the anti-Russian military stances must come to an end for Poland’s sake, for Russia’s sake and for the sake of Europe as a whole.

Knowing the history of World War One and the history of World War Two, I sense that Sergei Ivanov is wrong. If there is war in Europe, the next war will not be fought with conventional forces. It will be a Nuclear War and the loss of human lives and the degree of destruction will be something we have never experienced before.

Importance: High

Dear Sir/Madam,

We must all be extremely vigilant to counter the campaign carried out by some British mass media to create a climate of hatred against the Russian Federation. They go as far as falsifying statements made by NATO North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

As a political researcher, I read with astonishment an article published by The Independent in London that reflects a distortion that was published by an American newspaper. I forward to you the correspondence that I received from NATO indicating that The Times has completely fabricated a story that it also happened to appear on The Independent.

I also sent the said correspondence to FSB in Moscow because it relates to a newspaper owned by the son of a Russian citizen called Alexandr Lebedev, that also happens to own several other mass media in the United Kingdom including other newspapers and a television channel.

All the best

Dear LTC Dirk Mathes (DEU A),

I see that I was more than justified to contact you regarding what constitutes misreporting of a very important matter, distorting statements made by those speaking on behalf of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and we don’t know exactly the purpose of such appalling misrepresentation.

The Independent, a newspaper published in the United Kingdom and owned by Evgeny Lebedev, son of Alexander Lebedev who used to be the third largest potato grower in the Russian Federation who decided to diversify his financial interests buying newspapers and television channels in the United Kingdom that include The Independent, Evening Standard, Metro and London Live, published the story published by The Times on its main online website.

I read the story and decided to contact you immediately. For purposes unknown to me, I have noted that the said publication publishes articles that are borderline in terms of National Security and of geopolitical paramount importance.

At the end of the day, the buck stops with the owner of the publication  - Evgeny Lebedev – who is ultimately responsible for what is published.

I attach link to the story published by The Independent and a picture of the page and heading publish by The Independent.


I don’t know the intention of those in charge of the publication nor the agenda of its owner Evgeny Lebedev but I do believe that there are far too many distortions for this to be a mere accident or a case of lack of professional competence generated by copying what was printed by an external source without proper verification of the veracity of the report.

Best regards

Sir,

We have noted The Times story of 3 March, and regard the headline as
inaccurate based on the reporter's interview and not supported by the story
itself. Further, this topic was specifically addressed and rejected by
DSACEUR during the interview. 

On the issue of NATO's response to any Russian interference in European
elections DSACEUR was asked by The Times reporter whether NATO had a role in preventing Russian interference in European elections. DSACEUR stated in his response „The appropriate to political meddling, to propaganda, to the sort of problem that you are alluding to is from the other areas of national power, national capability, but we do have a role in NATO in being aware of what's going on, in tracking hybrid confrontation because that is the signal to us that a hybrid confrontation is developing“ and then stated, „So we have a role in being aware, in helping to track, in seeing where certain effects are being coordinated across the hybrid spectrum, but what we deliver is military capability and the military instrument isn't the instrument that you would choose to use to deal with political interference in an election. I mean blatantly not.“

Dear Sir/Madam,

Either General Sir Adrian Bradshaw didn’t say what he is reported to have said and was misquoted or he actually said it and his mental health should be questioned. Using hearsay and mere speculation to say that NATO could go to war on the basis of political developments rather than real aggression is a complete and utter absurdity.

What is even more absurd is the fact that the mass media echoed an irrational statement reportedly made by a high ranking officer. Moreover, I am extremely critical of what I call Unternehmen Barbarossa II (a repeat of the events of June 22 1941).

In the 1960s, the USA and USSR almost went to Nuclear War because of missiles places in Cuba. President John F Kennedy issued an ultimatum to Nikita Khrushchev asking for the withdrawal of the said missiles. Such was the American reaction when missiles were placed close to the USA but not along US borders.

Today, very much like the Wehrmacht of 1941, NATO has deployed forces with even greater firepower than the fire power of the Wehrmacht along the borders of the Russian Federation and expects the Russian Federation to accept it quietly and without any complaint.

As if this wasn’t enough, a hatred campaign, a war of words is being waged against the Russian Federation at several levels and General Sir Adrian Bradshaw has made himself an accomplice of such absurdity.

A few years ago, Sergei Ivanov stated that if there was war in Europe it would be a conventional war. Let me assure you that if there is conflict with the Russian Federation it will be a Nuclear War and that as a consequence of it there will be no Europe left. Therefore nonsensical statements like the one General Sir Adrian Bradshaw is reported to have made are acts of madness and General sir Adrian Bradshaw should be fully aware of the consequences of making such kind of statements.
