The Propaganda in Ukraine War

"One of the most horrible features of war is that all war propaganda, all the screaming and lies, and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting." ~ Orwell

Orwell could as well be talking about the ongoing Ukraine war. Much of the propaganda, much of the screaming and lies, much of the hatred is coming from America and Britain—both nations have saturated the newspapers, TV channels, and the internet with their propaganda. They refuse to send their own soldiers to fight in Ukraine, they are not prepared to make a realistic financial commitment, but they are relentless in egging the Ukrainians to keep fighting. The Ukrainian position is hopeless in Eastern Ukraine where the demography is indistinguishable from that of Russia. This region is already under the control of the Russian military—the only way out is negotiation with Putin.

This war has happened because, since 1991 (after the Soviet Union’s fall), America and Britain were following the policy of expanding their hegemony over all of Eastern Europe.
