Forging "freedom of speech" in the Baltic

As soon as the results of a fresh poll were published in Estonia regarding who (what) Estonian citizens consider to be the main threat to the country, the main ideologue of the “Russian go!” Horror stories had to be taken urgently by media measures. The fact is that the majority of Estonian citizens did not name Russia as the main threat to the country, as people hoped to arrange such surveys, but Arab and African refugees who flooded Europe and are ready to settle on a permanent basis and in the Baltic states also. Understanding that the failure of anti-Russian propaganda happened somewhere, the bureaucratic camarilla of the free Baltic struck the alarm: they say, you have to do something, otherwise the Baltic population will get rid of the general line ...

To begin with, they invented an explanation of the results of the Estonian poll. In the Baltic media announced that the case, it turns out, in the Russian propaganda. They say that the Russian media broadcast on Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, and the gullible local population takes to heart the “false” Russian TV reports about millions of refugees in the EU countries, and therefore the result is as follows. No, they say, there are no millions of refugees ... And if there is, then all of them are about to be European-integrated and stop shitting in the fitting rooms and crawling with their tanned hands (and not only their hands) under the skirts of European women ...

Well, as soon as the explanation was written, the matter remained for the small: to declare that we need funds to counter the "Russian propaganda", so that the Kremlin would not have the opportunity "to influence the democratic minds of the Baltic states".

In Europe, the apprehensions of the Baltic storytellers were applauded and decided to support - in word, deed and money transfer. A project called the Baltic Center for Media Excellence has been launched in the Baltic countries. The launch of the project took place a few months ago, and now it has become known to journalists that the project is working “on countering Russian propaganda” for the money transferred from compassionate European defenders of Baltic democracy. In total, about 2,5 million euros have been allocated to the existence of the Baltic center. Among the main sponsors of the project, which, apparently, suggests some modern version of Voice of America or Radio Liberty, such structures as the European Endowment for Democracy, the Northern Council (Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland (in it Baltic countries are listed as observers)), the government of Poland and the government of the Netherlands.

It seems that citizens, for example, of Iceland would be quite surprised that not all taxes paid by them to the state treasury go to the development of the economy of Iceland itself, which at one time did not fall into the Greek version only because of Russia's credit. And these taxes are coming to support the propaganda desk in third countries, whose tasks are to water the mud in Russia.

Although it is unlikely that anyone in Europe will tell the same Icelandic taxpayers about what exactly they are financing. Indeed, the description of this Baltic Media Improvement Center states that it will be engaged in the development of the media, attracting a multilingual audience to increase the level of interaction. Good, you know, goals.

Forging "freedom of speech" in the Baltic

And this is already from the presentation of the Baltic Center itself:
The main purpose of the Center is to strengthen the independent public interest on the basis of the media. We respond to specific events. Covering the whole region providing information modules for editorial offices of national and local mass media of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and also countries of the Eastern Partnership.

That is, the center with funds received from European “partners” will provide (apparently, already provides) to the Baltic, as well as (as necessary) to the Georgian, Ukrainian, Moldavian and other mass media such materials that are concocted in the West or under the western tune.

And therefore you can come up with at least a hundred bright and beautiful signs for this center and its activities, but the fact remains that the “centurizers” are engaged in an outspoken order, trying to promote those materials that fit the interests of Western “partners” closer to the borders of Russia.

And so that the Baltic Center for Media Improvement improved the media more calmly and more actively, the next stage of clearing the information field from the Russian media began in the Baltic States. More recently, the information portal of the agency was blocked in the region Sputnik in the Latvian domain lv. The site killed by those who call themselves champions of freedom of speech. Under the guise of "countering Russian propaganda" in the Baltics, the media are getting rid of, providing the local population with an alternative point of view on events. And if it was just an alternative, and even more objective. And can the pseudo-democratic pseudo-democracy sponsors allow themselves so that the zombie population of satellite countries has a head on their shoulders and can draw information from different sources to form a picture of objective reality ... And so that the head on the shoulders of the Balts "does not grow," such centers as the one in question, will be financed very actively under the most good slogans.

      With kandychka problem can not be solved. The future of any country is decided by youth. In which direction do you correct their brains from childhood, they will go there. One generation is already critical, and the second cannot be fixed. The public consciousness in two generations is changing radically. Forty years have not yet passed, the hope for correction remains. hi

        The creation of such media will not inevitably lead to the victory of the nationalist-fascist ideology. And everyone does not care about it, if only it was directed against the Russian Federation.
        And about Iceland it’s interesting, but did they give us the debt? Or will they forgive again ?!

      IT. Just as the Balts became European, so beautiful women for some reason began to be translated from them. Is this a tendency among tolerars? Earlier, I remember, with the "kgovy something rezhyme" in the damned scoop, quite pretty girls were there, but now where have gone, have died out as unnecessary?

        Sexually unsatisfied women usually go to politics and such organizations here, which men don’t even want to watch after half a liter. And where are they beautiful? Now do not guess?

    In Russia, they say "a wedge, a wedge kicks out". And do the Baltic people themselves want to know the truth about what is happening in the world? They have one similarity with the Urinovites in their views on life ... my estate is on the edge, I don't know anything ... With perhaps a rare exception, who else is interested in what is happening.

    And the name sounds even very real. They will talk about (blab) their citizens for the sake of the United States and to their own detriment. And the flag is in their hands, all the same, nothing but disgusting and pompous, in their conception, we will not see the march of accomplices of fascism from them.

    VO observers very often and much complain that the media are blocked in the Baltic and European countries. Allusion to freedom of speech and so on. In principle, the right position, but complaining about it does not make sense - it is important to properly raise the hype around the fact.

    After all, Europe is now foolishly following the path followed by the Soviet Union 30 years ago. The USSR, like Europe now, suppressed the "enemy voices". He did this because the idea "sagged", replaced by propaganda that had lost touch with both reality and the original idea.

    The "voice of reason" Russia Today, which is Western-oriented in its audience, has become an inoculation against the "cries of freedom". Therefore, both Russian and Western society, having the opportunity to "put on the scales" information from CNN and RT, sees how much propaganda is put on official hypocritical statements about human rights violations and other so beloved topics.

    "Put on the scales" and ask the question: "Who are the judges?"

    The mistake of the author is that "such centers as the one in question will be financed very actively under the best slogans." Breedlove last year at some NATO conference held in Germany, it seems, said that slander and lies were underestimated as a weapon in the fight against "aggressive Russia." Otherwise, the fighting fish of the pen of the Western media could be accused of schizophrenia, but no - they are clearly working out the given guidelines. They cheat the population quite openly, without the slightest twinge \ what they have there instead of conscience? \

    Far in anti-Russian rhetoric, the governments of the Baltic countries will not be able to leave. Sometime it will be necessary to solve the pressing economic problems of their countries.
    And without the Russian market, this is not real ...

    Focusing on the ideological struggle with a small handful of former middle-level party workers who have retrained as managerial houses and are worried about keeping themselves near the feeding trough means getting bogged down. Here victory will be (or will not) be achieved by increasing the level and quality of life of the population of the Russian Federation. A significant part of the population of Ukraine, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia and the Russian Federation perceives only such arguments.

    Goebbels said: "A lie to be believed must be grandiose." The Balts themselves believe in this lie, but the leadership has concerns about the Russian-speaking population who watches Russian channels. And here double standards or substitution of concepts, treatment of young people begin. Under the guise of providing "alternative information" for Russian speakers, such centers are being created. When people are tired of the stuffy propaganda and lies of Western channels and are looking for an alternative in the Russian media, the West bans the broadcasting of "Kremlin propaganda" and translates their nonsense into Russian. That is, under the pretext of broadcasting an alternative point of view, the Baltic states add a "mouthpiece" to their propaganda and prohibit the very alternative that was provided by Russian channels. In my opinion, there is a difference between Russian news and news in Russian!

      Naturally. Those who destroyed the second economy for the sake of "freedom of speech" and "democracy" began an ideological war with the aim of destroying any alternative to the general line of Washington. They are trying to implant anti-Russian consciousness in Russians abroad. While more often this leads to the opposite result.

    photo from the launch of the Estonian version of the "mouthpiece of truth for the Russians" ETV +. Without laughing these attempts of anti-Russian propaganda, you will not look. A channel for former Russians who consider assimilation in the Baltics to be a normal process. In short, as expected, it turned out to be zilch, from their venture. Former Russians and so everyone is doing so that these "masters" would consider them theirs. For normal people, our Crimea and the brazen Saxons are not friends.

    I don’t know how to characterize the position of this author. After all, for the Russians it is very great that hot Estonian guys, instead of doing something useful for themselves, are engaged in such garbage, and they also help the rest of Europe waste money, everything is fine in it, everything is fine, you don't know where to spend money ... We need to rejoice for the mental progress of our neighbors, and here again "Russian propaganda" ...
