RUSSIA COMPLETES CRIMEA SECURITY FENCE | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


RUSSIA COMPLETES CRIMEA SECURITY FENCE

Russia has finished building a high-tech security fence along annexed Crimea's border with mainland Ukraine.

The fence, more than 60km (37 miles) long, is topped with barbed wire and has hundreds of sensors.

Russian forces annexed Ukraine's Crimea peninsula in March 2014 - a move condemned internationally. Crimea has a Russian-speaking majority.

Russia's FSB security agency says the fence is necessary to prevent "infiltration attempts by saboteurs".

An FSB statement, quoted by Russia's RIA Novosti news agency, said the fence would also thwart smugglers trading in illegal weapons, drugs, alcohol and other contraband.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The BBC has gone from delivering excellence in journalism to consistently belching its putrid, foul codswallop upon the minds of its readers, constantly capitulating to the British and US government war-centric agenda over the truth, and thinking this will absolutely be received by their readers as reliable, gospel, solid-fact.

I would politely suggest that this might have been the case in the past, but is not the case at this point in the 21st century, because citizens of the UK and US are both war-weary, war-skeptical, and looking to independent resources (like WRH) to actually get the real news.

The current agenda is always sabre rattling, and the lies remain the same.

First, BBC, you lie when you use the word "annexed" in reference to Crimea; this never, ever happened.

And please note; no one at BBC, not even the night janitor, wanted to put their names to this ridiculous tale. So, in light of the fact that whoever put this up has a very severe case of SMD (Selective Memory Disorder), I will be happy to, once again, break this down for them, in small words, that even THEY can understand.

Let's set the "way-back" machine to 2014. This was the spring, which saw Yanukovich, the legitimately elected president of Ukraine, get thrown under the proverbial bus, and Poroshenko was "anointed" to replace him, as he was thought to be more "pro-western" than was Yanukovich. This election was more crooked than is a dog's hind leg, with massive vote fraud going on.

And no less an American icon than President Obama, himself confessed that the US had brokered a deal to effect "regime change" in Ukraine.

You see, writers of this atrocious piece of tripe; I've got documentation on my side; you have absolutely no game, whatsoever.
The Crimeans knew that after this putsch, there was no legitimate representation in Kiev, so here is precisely want they did, in a fair, and transparent two-part referendum.

First, the Crimean people were asked, post putsch, if they wanted to stay with Ukraine, or ask the Russian federation to accept Crimea as a member.

Then, the Crimean people requested to become part of the Russian Federation, and Russia accepted the petition.

You see, BBC, I can back up what I say with facts; and the fact is, there was no annexation of Crimea by Russia; zero, zip, none.

Your use of the word "annexation" is a fact-free description of what happened here, as a means to demonizing Russia for what it did not do.

And we all know that demonization of a country, for what it absolutely did not do, and supporting that demonization through sanctions, again, for what it absolutely did not do, are generally a prelude to some kind of shooting war.

And I find it nearly hysterically funny (if it weren't for the oncoming war part), that you are, again, blissfully unaware of the UN Charter, to which, I believe, the UK is still a signatory)which states unequivocally, that all people are allowed the right of peaceful self-determination, which is precisely what Crimea did in this case.

So BBC thinks it can go on lying to demonize Russia, with no repercussions, but I politely beg to differ.

I would strongly suggest that those still reading this rag, cloaked in its antique, tattered reputation for truth telling, will be fact-checking in other places, and will start to ignore what you say completely, a situation you have totally brought upon yourself.

RIP, BBC: your capacity to describe anything correctly has just been broken into smithereens, big-time, by this piece, and your credibility has become a world-wide joke.
