Not propaganda

First published in Letters

IT WASN’T propaganda that Russia sent its troops on exercise on the border of Ukraine, it wasn’t propaganda that Russia was supplying the Vietcong with weapons, both while Britain was in Vietnam and also while America was there.

It was not propaganda that it was a missile launcher supplied to pro-Russian fighters in Ukraine that brought down MH17.

I would also wonder how many conflicts around the world are funded by Russia.

To answer your last first... nowhere near the number funded by the west.

Take a look at history without the rose coloured lenses.

Ask yourself why was Britain,the USA and Australia, France and others engages in Vietnam?

Then ask yourself why the Russian went into Afghanistan . I am sure Google can supply the answers
What about Cuba?, why did Kreushev send missiles to Havana?
Don't just take the media version, read, comprehend and start thinking for yourself.
Churchill made it quite clear in his infamous Iron Curtain speech in Fulton, Missouri, some time after he said we made a mistake, at the end of WW2, we should have carried on to Moscow. maybe he read that book ., " How to make friends and influence people"
His American friends were not at all pleased.
