It seems the west has got the message now, but it took a new law, signed by President Putin, to end the daily barrage of SHIT produced by western media, incriminating such filth and disgusting falsity as has been propagated by western journalists not only just in the past few days but for decades, with threats of jail-time penalties. And not before time, some might say. Russia has looked on in silence all that time. Always protesting such action but as with other of their protests, always ignored. Well, not this time baby. There is a new world order in progress. An order that will back a policy of truth in all things. The west is going to find that a very difficult, perhaps impossible adjustment to their normal routines. Not to mention an abrupt attitude adjustment.
From TASS, I quote some further details of the changed law:
Russia’s Criminal Code was complemented by article 207.3 “Public dissemination of falsehoods about the use of Russia’s armed forces.” It envisages a prison term of up to three years or a fine of 1.5 million rubles. Such a violation committed while performing official duties, for selfish reasons or out of political, ideological, racial, ethnic or religious hatred or hostility is punishable with a prison term of up to 10 years or a fine of up to 5 million rubles. If such a fake entailed grave effects, the prison term may range 10 to 15 years.Quote from: ‘Law on punishment for fakes passed amid information war on Russia — Kremlin’ – TASS
So, it appears to have quite a narrow focus – necessarily I guess. You publish shit (of any colour) about activities of the Russian military – you will be punished. Fair enough. Who would want to tell lies anyway. Apart from western media of course – that’s their job. And probably why they have all decided to leave Russia.
Any Russians who would like to do the same – why? You don’t want to be part of one of the great success stories of the 21st century? Why? You want to be among all the red faces around the world, soon to be found grovelling for Russian forgiveness for what they themselves did – knowing or even not knowing that it was all wrong, and that they should have shown gratitude for, and actually should have known of, the sacrifices Russia made to save the world from unspeakable oppression? Shame on you.
