The Western press continues to demonstrate "enchanting skill" in twisting the meaning and messages of the statements of Russian officials. Method, basically, long described by the classics: "peace is war", "war is peace", "soft is hard", "white is not white at all". And a whole conglomerate of Western media continues to act according to these patterns.
An example is the material in the British Daily Mail, which tells about the conversation between the presidents of France and Russia. As is known, For some time now Emmanuel Macron has taken the fashion of inviting journalists and bloggers to his office for telephone conversations with foreign leaders., and without warning about the broadcast of the conversation of their interlocutors.
Speech during a telephone conversation turned to accusations against Russia of alleged readiness to use nuclear weapons. Vladimir Putin reminded Macron, that there is only one state in the world, which used nuclear weapons, moreover, twice - dropping bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. And Macron, as the Russian president noted, this state knows.
The British publication, citing an alleged member of the French administration, turned Putin's words upside down., stating, that these words "alarmed Macron". It turned, that Macron is 'so impressionable', that he was "afraid of the message" of the President of Russia.
Daily Mail writes, that the President of France perceived the words of the Russian colleague "as a threat to Ukraine".
From a material citing an unnamed source in the presidential administration of France:
Putin recalled Hiroshima and Nagasaki, making it clear, that in order to defeat a country it is not at all necessary to launch a nuclear strike on its largest city, per chair. This scared Emmanuel Macron, after all, the mention of Japanese cities was perceived as a message about the possibility of delivering a strike with tactical nuclear weapons on cities in eastern Ukraine for the surrender of Kyiv. The same material states, that the presidents of Russia and France discussed the issues of nuclear doctrines of their states.
