Will Putin follow Stalin's Katyn strategy on the airline shoot-down?

In dealing with the tragedy of the downed Malaysian airliner MH17, the leader of the Russian Federation, President Vladimir Putin is behaving more and more like a throwback to Josef Stalin and his cover-up of the Katyn massacre. It was Stalin who approved the murder of thousands of Polish nationals in 1940, including military officers, dumping their bodies in mass graves hidden from view in the Katyn Forest near Smolensk, Russia.

If the Wehrmacht had not invaded Russia in Operation Barbarossa in June 1941, the evidence of this massacre would never have been found. Here is a recount of how the crime was discovered, taken from Wikipedia:

The government of National-Socialist Germany announced the discovery of mass graves in the Katyn Forest in 1943. When the London-based  Polish government-in-exile asked for an investigation by the International Red Cross, Stalin immediately severed diplomatic relations with it. The Soviet Union claimed the victims had been murdered by the Nazis, and continued to deny responsibility for the massacres until 1990, when it officially acknowledged and condemned the perpetration of the killings by the NKVD, as well as the subsequent cover-up by the Soviet government.

Putin meets with world rabbis to denounce Hitler and anti-Semitism for the umpteenth time

While he reportedly admitted during this meeting that Dr. Josef Goebbels was a "talented man" and maybe even that Goebbels had 'achieved some of his goals' (this has not been reported everywhere), these words were later removed from the published statement on the ITAR-TASS website.

ITAR-TASS also represented Putin as meeting with "representatives of international public and religious organizations" rather than with the black-hatted Orthodox rabbis we see in the photos taken. Pro-Putin websites have substituted a older picture of Putin alone with Russian flags behind him when running this story.

Kremlin.ru reported Putin discussed the fight of Jewish people during WWII and the struggle that still exists today regarding anti-Semitism. He recalled his visit to Yad Vashem in Israel – a "Holocaust" museum – and also mentioned the Museum of Tolerance in Moscow (which he was instrumental in having had built, even personally donating a month's salary to the cause).

     "Went to Murieta today.  One of the most depressing days of my life.  The hatred these people have for us is mind-blowing.  They shredded American flags and dragged them in the dirt.  We, of course, were called racists even though they did not hide their hatred of us. And, we are expected to welcome them???  Just let one of us go to Mexico on Cinco de Mayo and shred a Mexican flag.

Russia's President Vladimir Putin chairs a government meeting at the Novo-Ogaryovo state residence outside Moscow, Russia.


People found guilty of financing extremist activities or expressing support for them online now face prison terms under a bill signed into law by President Vladimir Putin.

Once the law takes effect, the dissemination of online material deemed extremist will be a criminal offense, meaning that even "liking" or reposting content on a social network could land users in hot water with the authorities.

Putin: "Soviet victory in WWII saved Europe from slavery"

By Carolyn Yeager

Is the president of Russia just a bald-faced liar or is he a complete ignoramus when it comes to the history of his own country and that of Europe?

It has to be one or the other.

In his speech today on Red Square facing the Kremlin, Putin is quoted as saying it was "the Soviet victory in World War Two which saved Europe from slavery and preserved peace on the planet."

Patriotism can cause people to exaggerate and also to play down inconvenient facts, but this is ridiculous. It was the Allied (not Soviet alone) defeat of Germany that actually enslaved all of Europe--the West to International Jewry/Banking and the East to brutal communist/Jewish dictatorships and economic backwardness. Even Eastern Germany was enslaved for 40 years to this Soviet monolith due to its most regretable pyrrhic victory.

Interesting facts about Vladimir Putin

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2014-05-06 17:12

Putin before his face-lift, looking pretty droopy.

Putin divorced his wife and is currently in a relationship with a much younger women.

Putin only had two children – daughters. No son to carry on the name.

Putin allowed one of his two daughters to marry a full-blood Korean. Maybe he couldn’t have stopped her, but he gave the union his blessing.

Putin keeps his own ancestry private – his lineage past his parents is unknown to the Russian people.

Putin is estimated to be worth one billion dollars and to have built a mansion for personal use on the Black Sea via associates.

Putin concerns himself with his image to the voters as a “real man” – minimizing his short stature in comparison to taller men and posing for arranged pictures with wild animals and riding horseback shirtless.

Putin is 5’7” tall. Some insiders say he is only 5’5” and wears lifts in his shoes.

Putin gets Botox injections in his cheeks, and has had facial surgery, thought he is only 61 years old (born in 1952).

“Experts claim that Mr Putin’s dramatic transformation is due to a number of procedures including a facelift, cheek-fillers, a brow-lift, removal of bags under his eyes and Botox.”

“But Jan Stanek, one of the UK’s top cosmetic surgeons, said: ‘I have no doubt at all that he has had quite a bit of surgery.
‘Unfortunately, it has made him look a little odd.
‘By lifting the brow so much it has a feminising effect, which is not what you want.’

Michael Prager, a leading Harley Street cosmetic surgeon, said: ‘He has perhaps had a little bit too much work to the eyes because he has what we call “fish eyes” or “dead eyes”.
‘They look empty because he is unable to express his emotions through his eyes, because the muscles have been paralysed.’

Putin signs law banning rehabilitation of Nazism

President Vladimir Putin has signed a law banning the rehabilitation of Nazism, the Kremlin press service said on Monday [May 5, 2014]. The law, which introduces criminal punishment of up to five years in jail for the denial of facts set out by the post-war Nuremberg trials and for the dissemination of false information on the actions of the Soviet Union during the war, was earlier adopted by the parliament. Publicly desecrating symbols of Russian military glory or spreading information disrespecting public holidays related to the country’s defense will be punishable by a fine of up to 300,000 rubles, ($8,400) or community service for up to a year, RIA Novosti said.

Just in time for the big bash on Red Square on May 9th. Won't it be grand.

I predicted this outcome on my Saturday, April 12th radio broadcast (it was totally predictable) while the big Putin fans  at the Daily Stormer kept down-playing it as "probably not going to happen." So now what? -cy

MOSCOW — Russia staged a huge May Day parade on Moscow's Red Square for the first time since the Soviet era on Thursday, with workers holding banners proclaiming support for President Vladimir Putin after the seizure of territory from neighboring Ukraine.
 
Thousands of trade unionists marched with Russian flags and flags of Putin's ruling United Russia party onto the giant square beneath the Kremlin walls, past the red granite mausoleum of Soviet state founder Vladimir Lenin.  [Statues of Lenin remain in abundance in Russia; by contrast, in Germany there can be found no trace of a monument to Third Reich founder Adolf Hitler. -cy]
