Before Swedish Minister of Foreign Affairs, Margot Wallström, gets too excited about the Russian Bear: Here is the story of NATO’s Iron Sword 2014 exercise!
Wouldn’t it be great if, say, Svenska Dagbladet, DN, Politiken, Sydsvenskan, DR.dk., SVT.se., Göteborgs-Posten, Jyllands-Posten, Information, BBC, CNN, Al-Jazeera, Washington Post, Huffington Post, Frankfurter Allgemeine, The Guardian . . . had mentioned this exercise somewhere? Just as a matter of information and as an opportunity to understand how Russia may see things from its side? Only Chinese media carry the story.
Quick conclusion: Read as many non-Western media you can. Check out things not based on Reuters, AP etc. Use the internet and stop wasting your time with one conflict party’s media only. The truth is always larger than you are told.
And read Russia Today – without believing of course that that is also not politically correct. In short, make your own judgements based on broader information.
