‘I don’t know how to get through to Western media anymore’

Vladimir Putin

WESTERN THREAT: President Vladimir Putin, who says a missile threat from Iran “does not exist” and that missiles are being deployed on NATO’s eastern front that can penetrate 1,000 kilometres into enemy territory and that this is a provocation to Russia. The West says it is in response to the annexation of Crimea and the civil war in Ukraine. Picture courtesy of the Russian Press and Information Office.

WAR GAMES: NATO has sent a 4,000 strong personnel force to the borders on NATO members Estonia and Poland and there has been virtually no press coverage. President Putin claims missiles have been placed on stand-by on the eastern flank while everyone’s back has been turned and that Western European citizens have been manipulated by mainstream media.

 

IS our mainstream media withholding vital information about our personal and national security in this country, Europe and the West?

This is material I wouldn’t normally refer to on my website but why has there been no coverage of the build-up of NATO forces on the borders of the Baltic and Poland near the Russian border.

We all want peace in the world, but should we believe those who have been given the responsibility to govern over us? Are they doing anything that we should know about?

This interview with mainstream western media was conducted at the International Economic Forum in St Petersburg, Russia, and President Vladimir Putin warned that the US, Europe and Russia were drifting towards full-scale nuclear war.

The UK sent a 500-strong battalion to Estonia and is part of a 4,000-strong personnel force on the eastern flank of NATO in Estonia and Poland. Four RAF Typhoon fighters remain in the Baltic ‘Air Policing Mission’. There is more information to these build-ups in the video attached here.

A month after this interview on 17 June, there has been next to no media coverage of this event to all and you have to ask yourself, why would President Putin feel the need to speak out in this way or seek to gain anything by speaking so candidly about NATO’s long-range missile system? I am no ebullient fan of President Putin but why would he got out of his way to speak to mainstream Western media like this as a Russian leader? It is not normal just to dismiss this.

The Russian president says that it is the build-up of these military personnel and deployment of missiles along the eastern flank of the NATO members area that is a threat to Western security, not the perceived one that is referred regularly in most news sources.

He said: “I cannot help asking those who have forced this situation, do you realise what you have done? The ‘Iranian threat’ does not exist but the NATO Defence Missile System is being positioned in Europe. That means we were right when we said that their reasons are not genuine, they were not being open with us.

“They have always been referring to the ‘Iranian threat’ in order to justify this system. Once again, they lied to us. Now the system is functioning, and is being loaded with missiles.

“As you (journalists) should know these missiles are put into capsules, which are used in Tomahawk long-range missile system. So, these are being loaded with missiles that can penetrate territories within a 500km range.

“We know that technologies advance and we even know which year the US will accomplish the next missile system. This missile will be able to penetrate distances of up to 1,000km, and then even further and from that moment on, they will start to directly threaten Russia’s nuclear potential. We know year by year what’s going to happen, and they know what we know.

“It is only you who tell tell-tales and you buy it, and spread it to the citizens of your country. Your people do not feel a sense of the impending danger – this is what worries me. How do you not understand that the world is being pulled in an irreversible direction? While they pretend that nothing is going on, I don’t know how to get through to you anymore.”

President Putin also claims the Western leaders have told lies to their citizens as to who has actually been aiding ISIS (Daesh) after President Obama and others continuously talk about the battle that has to be fought to defeat them.

“Another threat that President Obama mentions is ISIS. Well, who on earth armed them? Who helped to arm the Syrians who are fighting against (President) Assad?

“Who facilitated the political climate that created the situation? Who pushed for the delivery of arms to the area? Do you really not understand as to who is fighting in Syria?”
