Why the Russians are Lying on Ukraine

Moscow is infamous for its worldwide disinformation campaigns. Not only was it Czarist Russian intelligence which devised the infamous forgery of “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” and Soviet intelligence (or even Josef Stalin himself) which coined the neologism “dezinformatsiya”.

One explanation of course is deceptive diplomacy but that is not the main explanation. Iran is well aware that its system is fatally compromised by Israeli intelligence infiltration. But what about other great powers, don’tContinue reading “The Success of Iranian Disinformation”
