An interesting article pulling some of Putin’s history that does not play well with the current Putin and Russia as the global saviour model:
Strangely Russia Today scrubbed the original link to this article on their website, which now redirects to some inane story about a Russian female pilot. RT and the Russian government, like their Pravda/Soviet predecessors, are clearly trying to erase Putin’s dubious past remarks in relation to 9/11 and the ‘war on terror,’ just as much of today’s ‘truther’ community and ‘anti-imperialist’ crowd seek to whitewash Putin’s dirty track record in the service of the false dialectical Russia-Saviour narrative.
End of quote.
The article gives many examples that do not play well with the current narrative.
Most of us are so gullible and with conveniently short memories.
