Bomb Threats Epidemic: Psychological Warfare Against Russia Intensifies

In the forty-eighth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from four Russian newspapers: Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Parlamentskaya Gazeta, Izvestia, and RBK. He discusses a new dimension of psychological warfare against Russia: the major Russian cities have been literally overwhelmed by false bomb threats. In addition, he presents the highlights of an exclusive interview with the most powerful woman in Russia, Valentina Matvienko, the president of the Federation Council, and explains why the Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov will not go to Kiev to attend a meeting of the Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation. Lastly, he discusses the fact that the Chinese government-sponsored investors became the owners of the Russian oil stocks, thus taking another step forward in the geostrategic integration of vast Eurasian space.

  1. Thanks, Filip. Always good to hear about Russia and Europe from outside the Group Think.

  2. If not Putin, then Valentina Matvienko for president?
    I just sincerely hope that things will not escalate before the elections.

    We all know that peoples of different ethnic backgrounds and religious persuasions can live in peace and harmony, side by side.
    This so struck me personally when I visited Lebanon in 2015. You hear Muslim prayer towers from one side, and then church bells from another.
    Lebanon is a beautiful country with the nicest people you could meet. And some of the best (healthiest) food on the planet.
    Women can walk on the street dressed like any other western woman, no burkha required.
    And which country brought peace back to Lebanon after it got invaded by foreign aggressors hell-bent on destroying and dividing it?

    Yes, Syria.
    For anyone reading this and not up with the play, let that sink in for a moment.

    Let’s not only hope Russia stays peacefully in one piece, but also Syria, Lebanon and Iran and all other countries that dare to take a stand against the US/NATO/Zionist hegemon.
    The true Axis of Evil.

    With the divorce from Rosneft, what would prevent NATO from intentionally targeting/sabotaging the company’s assets? European investors, if they’re bailing when others are rent-seeking- seem to be escaping losses and forfeiting all future profit… It wouldn’t hurt them at all to have pipelines sabotaged or attacked… This “good news” for the marriage of China and Russia through oil ties could actually be bad news for everyone… Winter is coming, and people will need heat… There’s a full court press on Russia right now, with Hollywood in front… It would be interesting to know what places/utilities were getting the threats, as an attacker would probably want to see what the typical response is from the workers and the people… Thieves and cowards like a sure thing… Something predictable…
