Goes Quiet as Russia Exposes US Lies at Security
Russia just called out the West for using the UN
to promote regime change — but no one reported
By Richard Brandt
Twitter was flooded with
Nikki Haley's call to arms against Russia
during the Security Council meeting on Wednesday
afternoon. But no one bothered to report what
Russia had to say.
Russia's deputy United Nations
ambassador Vladimir Safronkov said that the
West's "obsession with regime change is
what hinders this Security Council."
He noted that for Washington and
its partners, "everything is guided by
regime change" and allegations that
Assad used chemical weapons in an attack in
Idlib province on Tuesday are based on "falsified
reports from the White Helmets", an
organization that has been "discredited long
He further added that "taking [the White
Helmets] at face value is not professional and
Safronkov pointed out that "the White Helmets
are getting mixed up in their reports. Their
versions keep changing. They speak of bombs from
helicopters, then from planes".
Russia's UN representative
observed that in "photos and videos we see the
White Helmets acting very unprofessionally.
Their behavior is very relaxed in these extreme
circumstances. All of this is clearly meant to
provoke. All of this has been reflected in the
Safronkov then asks the US, UK
and France: "Did this event take place?
Have you even checked what you wrote?"
Russia's representative finished
by slamming the UK for
blaming Russia for the deaths of children in
Syria. He said that the UK "does nothing"
for Syria except "submit drafts meant to
provoke" and "pressure investigations" into
reporting politically favorable results.
We can't find a single
mainstream report that focuses solely on Safronkov's comments.
Apparently the media can't even
identify who Safronkov is.
Here's how the geniuses at the
Interpreter reported this — but
misidentifying the person who was actually
speaking. What's the difference? They're all
something very wrong when the media won't even
report the other side.
