War and Remembrance

The word 'Remember' in Russian is lit up as the date of Nazi Germany's 1941 invasion of the Soviet Union is commemorated in Moscow. © Sputnik / Evgeny Odinokov

The US and Russia mark Pearl Harbor and Hitler's invasion very differently – that tells us a lot about national identity - Scott Ritter

Actually the Germans were attacking Poland, the Ukraine, Goth and a couple other places Russia had forced their way into/over.
The holidays are set by the Kremlin, described in the official story, and celebrated as prescribed.
Americans tend to be vaguely familiar with the reason for each official holiday but are more concerned about what they will do with the time off.

I stopped reading RT about a year ago. They have good writing....but they reveal their true mission in their subtitle "Question More", their mission is to sow doubt and distrust of Western institutions. And they are very slick, as seen in this piece.
If this piece was submitted to a credible western media it would have been tossed out.

The article's"On June 22, 2022, I watched the Russian president lay flowers at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier" would have juxtaposed to the very real ongoing artillery barrage that are flattening Ukraine, indiscriminately slaughtering civilians, directly and knowingly planned & ordered by that same president Putin. WTF?

Put that slick pretty RT on your shit list.

More about RT

Think about it is it easier to destroy a country with propaganda, using, say 100,000 journalists and IT pros. Or building and using munitions?

Putin has shown his hand with the lock down of media in Russia and the flattening of Ukraine cities. Not cool.
