One ridiculous piece of news after another comes from London, and pressure is being put on journalists – most likely, Great Britain can speak about “Ukrainization”, considers the Chairperson of the Council of the Federation Committee on Foreign Affairs.

Earlier the Prime Minister Theresa May in her Christmas message thanked the military for defending Great Britain against a “Russian invasion” and for “establishing order” after the incident in Salisbury, where in March the former GRU officer Sergey Skripal and his daughter were poisoned.

Theresa May is very grateful to the military who protected the country from Russia. But how exactly it was protected, the British Prime Minister is extremely vague. Well, let’s try to work it out ourselves.

“News from Great Britain becomes more and more absurd – there is talk, apparently, about a process of the Ukrainization of the United Kingdom”

said Kosachev to RIA Novosti

Judging by May’s words, Great Britain is one more country that heroically fights against “Russian aggression” with its valorous armed forces, noted Kosachev with irony.

“At the same time, a ‘decisive battle’ is fought on British information field too. Absolutely in the spirit of the shameful Ukrainian websiteMirotvorets, the Times newspaper published a list of journalists from the Edinburgh office of the Sputnik agency, along with photos and information about their positions, and also the appeal of the member of Scottish parliament from the Liberal Democrat Party Alex Cole-Hamilton to seize the property of the Russian journalists working with ‘propaganda'”

continued Kosachev

The Minister of Defence of Great Britain said that his department returns to the strategy of countering Russia from the times of the Cold War, reported the media. The political scientist Mikhail Smolin on the air of radio Sputnik suggested what dictated this course.

According to him, “the practice of such public denunciation is quite in the spirit of the current Ukrainian realities, where they have long gotten used to it, although even in Europe the former German chancellor Gerhard Schröder, after finding himself in the black lists [of Mirotvorets – ed], considered that it was too much”.

But Great Britain, it seems, isn’t embarrassed by this at all – instead of a substantiated denial or discussions with another point of view, they decided to simply call dissent propaganda and to hang out “dissidents” for public viewing and condemnation, emphasised the politician. “You will involuntarily remember that the events of Orwell’s anti-Utopia happens in Britain” concluded Kosachev.
