    Re: Russophobia \ Putinphobia in the media

    Nah but seriously the...

    Re: Russophobia \ Putinphobia in the media

    Actually the western media has always been russophobic, as that's what conforms to the common Russophobic POV on Russia. After all, Russia has been at odds with the west in the past 100 years or so,...
