Invasion of Ukraine it is primarily a military battle, but it is also an information war.
And on that front Volodko kicks Vladimir example.
Zelensky does this by taking his people out of the streets and publishing videos, usually dressed in brown T-shirts, as a global symbol of disobedience to Russian aggression.
Moreover, Zelensky called Western journalists, including CNN and NBC, and gave interview from his secret location – despite the obvious risks.
Visibility versus isolation
Think about it for a second. Zelensky is more visible in his bunker than Putin is in the Kremlin equivalent of his bunker. Several available photographs of Putin paint a picture of isolation with a Russian autocrat at one end of a 20-foot table and his adviser or visitor at the other.
Putin is too busy massacring the Russian press to worry about the Western press. Zelensky is sitting quite close to journalists.
“It’s not about ‘I want to talk to Putin.’ I think I should talk to Putin. The world needs to talk to Putin because there are no other ways to end this war. “
There is a method of his madness. He desperately needs weapons and humanitarian aid for a country under siege as Russian troops engage in indiscriminate bombing and take control of a major port city in the south.
Thus, he is acutely aware that he needs to convey the message daily and store it war in world headlines, even when trying to hide your location.
NBC’s Richard Engel, who was surprised to be invited with a small group of reporters to Zelensky, asked him a few questions and at one point compared him to Winston Churchill.
Putin doesn’t want to meet with you, Engel said, so what will you send him?
“It’s not that I want to talk to Putin,” Zelensky said. “I think I need to talk to Putin. The world needs to talk to Putin because there are no other ways to end this war. “
And here’s the contrast: The Washington Post reports on the remarks of Russian Foreign Intelligence Director Sergei Naryshkin.
“The masks have been removed,” he said. “The West is not just trying to close Russia behind the new Iron Curtain. It is an attempt to destroy our power – to “cancel”, as they now say in “tolerant” liberal-fascist circles. “
Man, that’s rich. Naryshkin and the Kremlin start a brutal and unprovoked war against a sovereign country, and he will whine abolish culture.
“The masks have been removed. The West is not just trying to close Russia behind a new Iron Curtain. It is an attempt to destroy our government – to “cancel”, as they now say in “tolerant” liberal-fascist circles. “
Russian soldiers are killing Ukrainian civilians, and this guy is talking about financial sanctions – the same sanctions that President Biden and NATO leaders have repeatedly warned about if there is an invasion, they will cripple their economy.
Some Russian oligarchs are forced to sell their luxury yachts. Bu-u-u.
But what else to expect from people who constantly complain that the government of Kiev is run by the Nazis, despite the fact that the country has a Jewish president?
Moreover, “fascist” circles are not usually associated with “liberal” circles. Some experts blame the right-wing rhetoric that was suddenly appropriated by the Putin regime, but no one can be held responsible for the way the totalitarians distort their words.
Meanwhile, Putin has shut down two of Russia’s last independent broadcasters, Dozhd TV and Echo of Moscow radio. The editor-in-chief of “Rain” Tikhan Dzyadko and his family fled the country, fearing for their safety.
Among other offenses, these publications called the Ukrainian “war” when Putin, with a bilingual 1984 statement, insisted that it was a peacekeeping mission.
And now Putin is pushing in his stamped parliament a bill that punishes an “unofficial” report – that is, anything but Putin’s propaganda – up to 15 years in prison.
Vladimir Putin may be able to use state-controlled media to feed this lie to his people, but the rest of the world knows the truth. It is not surprising that so many countries are moving to the side of Zelensky and his courageous people.
