‘Russian agitation has failed again. Why does Putin need to lie constantly?’, – Nemtsov
Below we present the meaning of Russian oppositional politics Borys Nemtsov.
‘The agitprom has failed again. How long they have been trying so hard to prove that massacre in Eastern Ukraine is an internal civil war: Russian speaking east is fighting punitive Banderivists from Kiev. And there we go! Prime Minister of the so-called DNR Aleksandr Zaharchenko admits that 1200 separatists fighters have been trained in Russia and they already have 30 tanks and 120 armoured vehicles. All the work of Ernst, Dobrodeev [Russian propagandists] goes down the tube. What a pity’.
‘It is unclear why Putin needs to lie all the time? In order to evade sanctions? But the West has information and imposes sanctions. It is also unclear why one should lie to Russians. They’ll support any of his versions. Including the true one. The Kremlin needs to say directly: we are using insurgents to fight Ukrainians because they have dared to overthrow their thief Yanukovych by revolution. We don’t want to be overthrown that is why we have began war. Russian people should know that revolutions end badly. Besides, we are fighting Ukraine so that is, God forbid it, wouldn’t achieve success on its way to Euro-integration. Because if it happens Russian would also want to Europe. At this would be the end of the regime of liars and thieves. Why shouldn’t they speak the truth? There would be less fails, that they wouldn’t have to remember what and where exactly they lied. It seems they can’t change it due to a habit to lie constantly, even when it is not needed’, – the politician said.
