The devastating period of the Wild ’90s during Yeltsin’s reign of chaos, is a topic which I have previously covered on multiple occasions, and which I will be coming back to in the future.
This time, I want to draw your attention to the newly-declassified documents, pertaining to the communications between Bill Clinton and Boris Yeltsin. These documents are especially telling in the current “Russian elections meddling” hysteria, which has engulfed the United States. In a flurry of accusations, backed by so far zero evidence, the US accuses Russia of swaying the public opinion in Trump’s favour by placing a few ads on Twitter. As the Russian saying goes, “a thief is always screaming ‘catch the thief’ loudest of all”. This perfectly illustrates the situation in the USA, in light of their continued and brazen track record of meddling in other states’ affairs, and in this case, specifically the Russian affairs during the Wild ’90s period.
The Clinton Digital Library declassified the Documents Concerning Russian President Boris Yeltsin.
RT made a short digest of 5 highlight points from this 591 page long publication:
‘Smart’ Putin & election loans: 5 must-read Clinton-Yeltsin exchanges released
The exchanges include:
- Clinton sends ‘his people’ to get Yeltsin elected
- Yeltsin questions NATO expansion
- NATO bombing of Yugoslavia turns Russia against the West
- Yeltsin asks US to ‘give Europe to Russia’
- Clinton on Putin: ‘He’s very smart’
Well, it increasingly looks like the Western “freedom of speech” and “democracy” are the two sham concepts that the West is shedding off.
A new aggregator has been launched by RT, in the wake of a flurry of censorship, banning and criminal prosecution (as proposed in Denmark) of alternative media and people holding alternative views, that is those not towing the US government line.
The name has a historical reference to the once strict censorship of news in the USSR. “Samizdat” literally means “self-publishing”, and was a phenomenon in USSR, where dissenting books and articles would go underground and be “published” by way of spreading hand-written or machine-copied copies of the prohibited works.
And the “New” in New Samizdat indicates that the West has completely committed to the path of censorship, just like USSR once did (with the consequences that we all know about), and that a similar, now digital, phenomena arises in the West as a response to the censorship and banning.
Here is what RT had to say about New Samizdat
In her recent article, Lada Ray covered some very important, yet hidden for a Westerner facts about the brewing religious war, which USA and Canada are instigating by promoting the schism in the Orthodox (Pravoslavnaya – “True Faith”) Church.
