What do Russian ppl think when they see stuff like this ? The scornful and condescending tone. In a mainstream publication. This is the quality of material that they spread around the world about your economy too.
The western mainstream really doesn't like you. They really don't respect you and they really have a problem with you.
I am living in the west since the 1970s. But I have relatives in Russia and Ukraine.
Russians do not see the full hate spew in their media since there is a Russian media that does not parrot the US-dominated western
MSM. But part of this Russian media does parrot the western propaganda to a small audience. There are some current events shows
on TV where the western propaganda is the topic of discussion. Basically, the ridiculous nonsense you mention is the best
However, most Russians do not have a negative view of the west and do not get riled up into anti-western hate on the drop of
a dime. It will take many years of western blood libel to sour the views of Russians of the west. But even then, the average
Russian will not hate the average westerner. They will properly target the western elites.
Unfortunately, there is a hard core western sycophant fraction of the Russian population (around 5% but up to 10%) that hates
Russia and thinks that all the excrement that is put out by the western media is God's truth. This fringe is what the western
media claims is the true voice of Russia and the comprador politicians (e.g. Navalny) that represent this fringe are deemed the
As for the western elites not liking Russians. This is normal for the last 1000 years. The so-called "drang nach osten" is the
centuries old demonization and attempts at invasion of Russia. The crusader Teutonic Knights were trying to regime change
Russia back in the 1100s. Even Poland tried to regime change in the name of the Vatican around 1600. The Grand-Duchy
of Lithuania was a greater Poland project that ruled over most of the original Kievan Rus in what is now known as Ukraine.
(The name Ukraine did not exist 200 years ago). This did not last. But then we had Napoleon trying to "civilize the savages"
in the early 1800s. He got his ass handed on a platter to him and came up with the retarded excuse that he was defeated
by General Winter even though the key battles happened in September long before any winter. General Winter helped to
whittle down Napoleon's Grande Arme when it was retreating. Then we have Hitler who was also claiming to put the
untermenschen in their place. After 1942 his campaign lost the initiative. Naturally, General Winter saved the Russians even
though there were a couple of summers that did not help the Germans.
America is taking up Hitler's drang nach osten. As with the Nazis, American politicians think they are exceptional and that
a manifest destiny guarantees their victory over the Russian savages. As recently mouthed by US politicians, Russia
is a gas station posing as a country and a "mafia state". Much like Hitler, they actually believe that Russia is a rotten
facade that will crumble in the face of NATO conventional forces. I guess America has spent too many decades fighting
3rd world countries and no longer remembers that Germany gave it a hard time even though 80% of Germany's war resources
were tied up on the eastern front. American trash talk about Russia strikes me as pathetically weak and insecure. Anybody
with a clue would know that as of 2018, Russia has its act together and is much better shape than 1991 when it comes to
its economy and actual military potential. If NATO tries to pull a Barbarossa on Russia, it will experience vastly more resistance
than Hitler faced in 1941.
