Maria Zakharova: Canadian sanctions against Russia are reminiscent of the actions of the Third Reich to destroy books

Nazi book burning in the Third Reich


The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, commented on her Telegram channel yesterday's decision by the Canadian government to impose sanctions against a number of Russian journalists and artists.



Zakharova recalled the policy of Nazi Germany to combat dissent and compared the actions of the Canadian authorities with the policy of the Third Reich, which tried to drown out the voice of reason by destroying books and banning periodicals.

With the advent of Hitler to power in Germany in 1933, a struggle began with ideas that did not correspond to the spirit of German National Socialism. One of the demonstration actions in this direction was the burning of "hostile" books. So, on May 10, 1933, more than 25 thousand volumes of books with a "non-German spirit" were burned in Berlin.

Canada's latest anti-Russian sanctions are comparable to an attempt by the Third Reich to destroy the "non-German spirit" and drown out the voice of reason through the burning of books and the ban on periodicals.

- Zakharova wrote in the Telegram channel.

The Russian diplomat also added that Deputy Prime Minister of the Canadian government Chrystia Freeland is worthy of her grandfather, an accomplice of Nazi Germany Mikhailo Khomyak.

For reference: at one time, the nationalist Mikhailo Khomyak was a member of the circle of people ruled by Emil Gassner, a Nazi propagandist who headed the Nazi press department in occupied Poland. He took an active part in activities to justify the extermination of Polish Jews.

Recall that yesterday Ottawa announced the imposition of sanctions against more than 50 Russian individuals and legal entities. The list also included such popular Russian artists as Nikolai Baskov, Nadezhda Babkina, Polina Gagarina, Oleg Gazmanov and others.

    The answer is in the text of the article.
    Since Canada seems to be ruled by the grandchildren of the underdogs of Bandera, why be surprised ....
    How Ukrainians loved to troll before ours .... Grandfathers fought the same))))

      Canada is a huge cache of Bandera, Vlasov and other counters and Russophobes .. By the way, the Maidan was prepared and supported by Canadian khoohls and others.

        Why be surprised? "democracy" is tough in Canada, you can't go to the rally, the rally was peacefully a few people with posters protesting against covid measures, so their policemen were brutally raked into the police station with batons and soldered another article. And yes, Canada is the most democratic country ...

        So it has already come. The Canadian embassy called the comparison "unacceptable and far-fetched." Yeah, "unacceptable" ...

        In order for the "West" to reach, analogies need to be selected correctly. And if you put Baskov or Gazmanov on the same level with Mann, Remarque or Freud, whose books were burned by German students and professors in May 1933, then no one will understand such analogies.
        They do not see any commonality between "All Quiet on the Western Front" and the story of how a sailor and a sailor will never meet.
        The embassy politely responded to these "accusations" and forgot about them.
        Apparently, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs should not be a pleasant sinecure for the especially devoted, but really work, then it will "reach"

    That there are no options to hang a photo of Khomyak in front of the Canadian embassy, ​​to organize single pickets. Do Canadians read Zakharova's telegrams?

        Some Canadian and other Western officials, secret service people, and mainstream media operatives (whose task is anti-Russian propaganda) reading what Zakharova wrote in her Telegram channel doesn't mean ANYTHING. These are the very people who are planning and carrying out anti-Russian actions - such as banning Russian cultural figures - in the first place; they are not going to be psychologically moved in any way by Zakharova writing in her Telegram channel that "Canadian sanctions against Russia resemble the actions of the Third Reich", and say "Oh my God, we're so wrong, we need to change our behavior". Plus, they hate Zakharova, just like they hate all Russian government members, as their enemy.
        Rather than endlessly trying to appeal to the very same Western political and media class who are deliberately creating the Russophobia in the first place, what Russians should do instead is to reach out DIRECTLY to the ORDINARY PEOPLE, the masses of citizens both in the West and in countries around the globe, with informational and street protest actions that tell them in plain terms about the Russian point of view, and the evil things that the governments of the US-centered Western empire are doing, and have been doing for many years, to Russia and Russians. Most normal people, even in Western countries, simply do not have a correct understanding of what is really going on in ANY international confrontation because they are incessantly brainwashed with lies by their own leaders and the corporate "mainstream" media which simply acts as the mouthpiece of the US and allied governments in international affairs. Russians need to protest with much more than simply a few sentences in Zakharova's Telegram channel, which no ordinary normal person in the world reads or even knows about, and which is NOT reported or commented about in any of the mainstream media that are their usual channels of information. Russia needs to talk directly to the PEOPLE in the West and the rest of the world, instead of only addressing the "respected partners" and "colleagues" in the hostile Russophobic governments. Frankly, this is just RIDICULOUS.

    Behind Maria Zakharova, I noticed one strange feature - all her indignations, concerns and bewilderment about the lawlessness of the West go into a steam whistle.
    A lot of noise, dust, and after them, as a rule, with rare exceptions, real actions do not occur ... request
    Therefore, when I see her speeches, it immediately becomes clear to me that the Kremlin has again begun to play Red Lines to calm the electorate.
    Talkative girl... you can fall asleep during her performance.

    The territory on which the unfinished Bandera people settled after 1945 cannot boast of any other. Look at the Canadian Nazi Latvis, who can be said to personify this shoblu

    A parody of the "purity of the race", but with a claim to devotion to the cause of the Fuhrer.

    This is just the beginning .. The United States today first blocked and then transferred the money of the Russian entrepreneur Molofeev to the account of Ukraine
    So far 5 million !!!! Oh, oligarchs, GDP warned you that you need to withdraw your assets from Western banks and that you will be forgiven or you will lose everything ..?
    Well, it began .. Abramovich immediately understood this and transferred the money to Zelensky (2.5 lard)))) or he would have lost everything. Who is the next Russian Jew oligarch?
    Let's chip off the devils or you will just be robbed by the Anglo-Saxons, etc.
    How pleasant it is to watch how thieves rob and lower thieves ..
    Here's liberal and holy private property and democracy in all its glory .. Everything has already passed the time and stole to London for whores and in all serious
    It’s hard for the West now, the channels of robbery of Russia are almost blocked .. And a bunch of 31 trillion debts are already off the charts hehe Come on, continue the GDP and tighten it!

    Canada has always been a gathering of Ragul's underdogs - ever since the early years of Soviet power.
    It is not surprising that now all sorts of Christs rule this country ...

    Somehow our propaganda is clumsily working. The fact that Nazi accomplices found refuge in Canada after WWII is one question. This needs to be worked on, but wisely. Comparison of the "burning" of ideologies hostile to Nazism with
    popular Russian artists like Nikolai Baskov, Nadezhda Babkina, Polina Gagarina, Oleg Gazmanov and others.
    looks kind of inappropriate. If in Russia "pop music" suddenly became an ideology, then this is our misfortune. It would be much more appropriate to find some "galimy" popsars in Canada (preferably some labukh-losers), and impose similar sanctions against them. Absurdity should be ridiculed, not delved into. And I repeat, the topic of the descendants of Nazi accomplices in Canada is a separate topic that needs to be dealt with competently.
