COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY CATHERINE MERRIDALE IN THE GUARDIAN

Putin’s Russia can’t celebrate its revolutionary past. It has to smother it
The Russian Revolution was a fight against the excesses of the rich. No wonder Vladimir Putin wants to ignore the centenary

“Putin’s Russia can’t celebrate its revolutionary past. He has to smother it”

I can’t see the point of writing such an article.

Good God, for decades the West condemned the Russian Revolution.

Countries like Britain even sent troops to stop it but failed.

Every major figure associated with it – Lenin, Stalin, Trotsky, etc. – has been treated as a monster of history in our press and films.

And, as anyone who keeps well-informed on affairs, Putin has worked extremely hard to build a modern Russia in keeping with Western business practices and open to international trade and relationships.

So, now, he’s avoiding the Revolution because of something wrong in his Russia?

Truly, notes for this article could have been written in Langley, Virginia.

Disinformation as pure as refined lead.
