British oldie The Times acts the ass! Look at the photo, which illustrated the article about the parliamentary elections in Ukraine! The photo has the following caption… “More than five million people couldn’t vote as they were in the territories held by pro-Russian separatists”. As far as I understand, they guy in the helmet armed with a machine-gun is a pro-Russian separatist, and a woman in the Moslem dress is the embodiment of the much-suffering women in Donbass, whom the terrible “pro-Russian” separatists force to wear hijabs. Just in case, I present a picture from the timeline of the Associated Press. The photographer who took the photo is Mukhtar Khan; he took it in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. As you see, the picture has nothing to do with the Donbass, nor with the Ukrainian election.
By the way, Mr Khan took the snap in Srinagar (sorry for this intimate detail).

This is par for the course for Western “coverage” of the given situation. Note well that the author of the piece stayed in Moscow, and didn’t go to Lugansk or Donetsk to find out things for himself. It certainly speaks poorly of The Times editorial staff… exposing them as lazy and ignorant charlatans. Then again, that’s common of the Western media in general, isn’t it? Of course, we Orthodox know that… all that we have to do is to look at Victor Potapov, Freddie M-G, and Rod Dreher to see world-class media phonies in action.Take this drivel posted by Dreher in 2010:
They all did it… by which I mean virtually the entire hierarchy is complicit to a greater or lesser degree in shuffling child-molesting priests around, or keeping them in some way in a position to commit their crimes. Why? Clericalism. The clerical class is what mattered most to these people, not the children and their families, to whom they were functionally indifferent… if anybody thinks Pope Benedict should resign, they should sober up and understand that there is almost certainly nobody under him who is untainted by this thing. This was the way the hierarchy operated for a very long time. At least, this current pope seems to have at long last been enlightened about the scope of this catastrophe, but he isn’t doing enough to make it right. What is it going to take?
Do note Mr Dreher’s silence about Feodosy Lazor… Pierre l’Huillier… Gleb Podmoshensky… Seraphim Storheim… the SVS pigs and their coverup of Eric Iliff’s death. There are interesting stories about his pal Dmitri Royster, too (I’ll simply say that they’re out there… believe them or not as you will… but Dreher was silent, fancy that). It puts a whole new spin on his rant, doesn’t it? The above is the same kind of shit that The Times is peddling about the Ukraine. In both cases, there’s a reckless disregard for the facts. This is truly too much of a muchness… do hand me the jug… I do know the crankness of the world, but must we see it at every turn?
