There is an information war



A well-known human rights organization Human Rights Watch (HRW) issued a message stating that peaceful Syrian citizens had repeatedly become victims of Russian bombardments. This newsnot confirmed by any evidence, instantly replicated the Western press. And then it was concluded that Vladimir Putin, as the Supreme Commander of the Russian Armed Forces, had already “taken over himself to the international tribunal” ...

It should be noted that the HRW message appeared at a time when the army of Bashar al-Assad, with the support of the Russian aviation launched an offensive in the northern regions of the province of Homs, where at least 50 thousand people live. According to human rights activists, fighting in such a densely populated enclave is a huge risk for the local population. And right there, referring to some “informed doctors”, it is reported that 59 civilians were already killed as a result of Russian air raids in the province, and according to HRW, the bombing of the Gantu village became the “bloodiest”, on October 15 family of 46 people.

Naturally, the dead were relatives of one of the commanders of the Syrian Free Army (FSA), therefore, until the bombing stops, there is no need to talk about any joint efforts of opposition groups with regular units of Damascus in opposition to the Islamic State, representatives of the FSA say.

In fact, there are still no reliable facts that Russian aviation is showing “indiscriminateness”. According to objective monitoring data that the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation regularly provides to the world community, HRW can only oppose unnamed testimonies in words. Or, for example, references to the head of the Syrian Human Rights Observatory Rami Abdel Rahman, who, before becoming a British subject and HRW activist, was selling kebab in London. From the same series and the message in the Twitter account of the so-called Syrian civil defense volunteer groups that "Russian pilots are responsible for 53% of all civilian deaths from September 30 to October 17."

It’s not even a question of how they managed to get such statistics on the territory where active military operations are being conducted and sometimes you can’t even lift your heads. The question is different: why did the SSA, Mr. Rahman and HRW human rights activists, did not see anything, did not hear, and did not say a single righteous word when militants from the Islamic State organized mass demonstration executions in the occupied territories? Presumably, then everyone was happy with everything. Moreover, everyone remembered well the video story when the commander of the SSA named Abu Sakar publicly ate the heart of a soldier in the army of Bashar al-Assad. For the sake of fairness, it should be noted that HRW did not ignore this cannibal episode, but since it did not work on the image of the so-called rebels and did not meet the geopolitical interests of the West, the “progressive community” did not dwell on it.

Such comparisons suggest that all these reports of "inhuman bombardments" that the Russian videoconferencing forces allegedly sin in are another round of information warfare, which has moved from the general political field to the operational-tactical level and has one goal: to stop it by hook or by crook. offensive army of Bashar al-Assad. And along the way - to discredit Russia.

In other words, another massive informatics is being undertaken, the organizer and customer of which is not so difficult to establish. His ears literally protrude from the message of Al-Arabiya TV channel, which informed the English-speaking world that October, the Russian HVAC had bombed a hospital in Sermin (Idlib province), as a result of which 20 died. No evidence is given, but what is remarkable: this message appeared two weeks after US aviation bombed the Doctors Without Borders (MSF) international hospital in Kunduz in northern Afghanistan, and 13 people were killed.

At first, Americans, as usual, did not admit guilt. And only a few days later, US President Barack Obama did bring personal apologies to MSF President Joanna Liu for an “erroneous air strike.” But the Associated Press does not seem to believe in blind chance. According to the news agency, over the course of several days before the air attack, US intelligence gathered information about the hospital building that was marked on military maps — the militants seemed to have arranged something like a focal point there. This is very American - first hit with all the power, and then understand ...

But now it turns out that the Russians seem to be no better at all? .. See how cleverly the information was compiled about the alleged bombing of a hospital in the province of Idlib. Literally on the same day, after Al-Arabiya, the France-Presse agency in Paris gives an explanation: they say that the hospital staff certainly confirm the fact of the bombing, but they cannot say with 100-percent certainty that they were Russian aircraft. And right there in the France-Presse information it says: “It is significant that the Russian Defense Ministry said today that Russian aviation attacked Sermin, where, according to the Russian military leadership,“ the leaders of terrorist groups ”gathered.

In general, everything is exactly as it was with the American bombing of the hospital in Kunduz. And since France-Presse reports that the Russian military admits the fact of a bombing of a medical facility, the European man in the street has no doubts: first, the Russians are bombing everything in Syria that does not distinguish between military and civilian objects. secondly, the Russian weapon not so accurate. What, in fact, should prove ...

In fact, the “Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation” never made any “frank confession” about this. Rather the opposite. The message about the alleged bombing of the hospital in Sermine, the official representative of the military department, Major General Igor Konashenkov, called the next duck and added: “We carefully monitor and analyze such injections ... Before you destroy any object of terrorists, the information is checked for more than one day and on several channels. And only when we get 100-percent confidence in the target, does the aircraft strike with the appropriate high-precision ammunition. ”

The Kremlin holds the same point of view. “When choosing targets,” said Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov, “when using the necessary data that the Russian military, Syrian colleagues, and colleagues at the Baghdad Information and Coordination Center receive, priority is given to not harm the civilian population.” There would be another conversation if, say, the same Al-Arabiya presented video evidence, and so it turns out - a word against a word. Moreover, the Russian Ministry of Defense, which has to justify itself, is in a deliberately unprofitable position. The standard situation in the information war, which Western propaganda brought to perfection: whoever first said, he is on a horse! And if after a while the truth still comes out, it will not be interesting to anyone ...

But there is one remarkable detail. Those “informed health professionals” referred to by Al-Arabiya are the Syrian-American Medical Society, registered in the state of Illinois. Is this organization related to medicine? .. According to Major General Konashenkov, it was the Syrian-American Medical Society that was used to replicate "evidence" of alleged use of chemical weapons against the Syrian opposition. As they say, comments are superfluous.

Well, the fact that Russian aviation does not bomb peaceful facilities in Syria is confirmed by the Islamic State militants themselves, who have recently been actively pulling up their headquarters and military equipment closer to hospitals and mosques.

      I repeat again:
      REQUIRED DENIALS! Apologies at the official level! In the ultimate form! In the same media, on the same pages, and not at the end, postscript!
      It is necessary to start mass diplomacy and law as much as possible! Submit to the courts with the requirements of moral apologies, refutations, COMPENSATIONS !!!
      And when there will be many precedents, then people will begin to understand more, see the truth!
      This is the way to victory in the info war!

      PS: Moreover, in all countries there is an article-DEFENDING!
      And slandering another state with the connivance of the authorities is even cooler!
      And if you sue the International Courts for libel and moral damage to every Russian (~ 140000000 people), then I think the arrogance will quickly subside! + babosy to the budget!
      After all, this is Their practice!
      So beat them the same in the same place!

          All the same, you need to do this, fight against the wall in order to finally break through it!
          The more blows - the stronger the head, the weaker the wall!

          PS: at least for posterity!
          To not be ashamed then!
          So as not to say later: "YOU, respected ancestors - they did nothing, but teach Us! (How this happens now!)"

      Hmm, for some reason they protect the rights selectively.
      And then it was concluded that Vladimir Putin, as the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Armed Forces, had already “bombarded himself at the international tribunal” ...

      It’s interesting, but what then did the leaders of the FSA and Western countries bombard, even if only for the XNUMXth century?

      so we also have a lot of smart people. Maybe it's time to put info war on the maintenance of the State? Collect more cunning than Amre, put on collateral ..
      Whoever said it first won. And then burn everything with fire, the State has nothing to do with it wassat Freedom of speech, sorry. We value it on a par with democracy. We cannot prohibit those who want to speak, and the state has no right to impose an opinion

    How much has been written about that Human Rights Watch - does anyone else believe her? Well, at least one or two ...

    Starting from undisguised sources of funding and ending with a list of assets and "glorious deeds" - such a malicious organization that it should not be disbanded - it must be burned ...

    And whoever stutters about the international tribunal ... I don’t remember the initiated tribunals for them. But the list of "orange revolutions", arms supplies is impressive ...

    Human Rights Watch is a cog in the information war. Not a single human rights mouse squeaked when ukrofascists massively bombed Donbass. For some reason, these creatures are constantly whining that Assad used force against the opposition 4 years ago, but if Poroshenko bombed half of Donbass, this is OK, dosed and in their opinion, "somewhere even nice" use of force. Everything that I have written is clear to everyone. And it would not be worth knocking on the keyboard because of this, BUT. Why does a branch of this organization still exist and prosper in Moscow? It should have been banned here long ago. Reason: FALSE AND DOUBLE STANDARDS. War is so war. gentlemen.

    Russia begins to prevail in the information space.
    It would be nice for her to start taking her place in the legal field.
    Because no one has canceled legal norms yet. And in the countries of the West such articles as "slander" also operate, as well as publications of such unverified "slander".
    Said "A" - show evidence. If Russia has other evidence, you can go to court. And to sue for money both with this organization and with all "mass media circulating this news".

    Russia's actions are one-sided - it justifies itself. It's time to go on the offensive. After the international commission did not prove Russia's involvement in the death of Boeing, it would be worthwhile to demand from countries that imposed sanctions against Russia, accusing it of a collapse, to demand compensation for the damage caused.

    Interesting, dear colleagues, but that someone expected a different reaction to our actions on the part of the Western and Arabian press. It is necessary not to fall to extremes to calmly and systematically pursue our information policy, which, in general, is also observed in the speeches of our responsible persons.

    Something like this is thought. hi

      It must be admitted that the actions of the media P-and-n-d-o-s-and-and G-e-r-o-p-s on descritation of the Air Force of the Russian Federation, and indeed of the Russian Federation, in this case are quite cautious . Some lazy have become. They don’t even want to quickly change the clothes of the beaten militants into civilian clothes and take photos, as they did in Kosovo.
      But, still to come. Meanness and unscrupulousness in their blood.

    there’s a war ... not only informational ... don’t take it for blasphemy ... November 1 is the day of mourning in RUSSIA for the dead ... and how many THEIR children of women who care for men died before this in this war, which is not only for Donbass but and for all of our Russian civilization in the war against greed, money-grubbing, humiliation of working people, with fat Jews and oligarchs, a corrupt fifth column ...!? I am deeply sorry for the relatives of the victims of the plane crash, but society should wake up ...

    Human Rights Watch is not the CIA. Tsereushnikov has his own, I do not remember the name. And these, for example, are making a big noise about the bombing of Yemen by Saudi Arabia, and in our press, for example, there were no reports about this until recently. HRW anyway whom, even their own Obama, they are more likely to bury than someone else. They have a nervous occupation.
    If they report something, then there is no smoke without fire, and there is no point in snorting just like that. You will calm yourself down, and since they trumpeted, then something happened. Yesterday, Médecins Sans Frontières reported a bombing strike on a market in a city near Damascus, under the control of anti-government forces. Who bombed - do not write. The planes flew in, launched missiles and flew away. 75 people died, 500 people went to surgery, many were amputated. But what kind of planes are not yet written. And the region is not the far Syrian east, but the near one we ourselves know whose Syrian west is. War, it's this

    I personally wonder why Syria's doctors are centralized international. Bandages with brilliant green, medical packages are not handed out to the people? And the centralized physician received the corpse - passed it on to the next instance. Somehow it's a little wrong, is it right?

    Konashenkov's photo today showed where the Syrian hospital was completely intact after the "destruction" by a human rights organization. The more tangible the strikes against ISIS, the more “pregnant women and children” killed by our aviation, such an impression.
    Igilovets threw the machine gun, shaved off his beard, and oh my god !, turned into a pregnant child who fell under the blow of Russian barbarians (s).
