Well you seem to be Russian yourself with no room for argument, with your nose up and considering all other nations or races inferior.

Love particulary your fascist remarks – basically stamping all non-russians fascists while Russia as a country precisely conducts itself like a fascist organisation – annexation of Crimea, Abhasia, Ossetia, Karelia etc, just like the Fascist germany did back in 1930s, under guise to “protect their citizens”. Fact.

Do tell me about Webster Tarpley, LOL. That bought-off corrupt so called “historian”, enjoying Russian and Chinese communist money by feeding brain washed nonsense. Talk about facts.

I do agree CNN is rather propagandistic and I rarely follow CNN. I’m one of those who combine my news flow by both local and in international, I also check The Moscow Times and sometimes even Pravda english just for curiosity, but the latter is not very informative.

I’ve travelled alot and lived in Middle-East and know what western propaganda means, but seeing and comparing different cannels in English, Spanish or Arabic to Russia, then the latter is the top-end master propaganda machine IMO, perfected to the finest since the Soviet Union of raipe and mass murder kept under cover, today Russia doesn’t even have any real non-party involved fully independent channel left. Fact. Well yes, there are some tiny ones, but nothing that spreads mass media to keep brain washing at bay – true independent media is brutalized by Russia secret services. Anna Politkovskaya is just a tip of the iceberg, Russia IS the third deadliest country in the world for journalists murdered since 1991, exceeded in the number of deaths only by Algeria (1993–1996) and post-invasion Iraq, basically making Russia the most journalists killed country in any peace-time country on Earth. Fact.

Social room being limited to just as one country the Russians are very vunerable to controlled propaganda since they dominantly don’t speak any other language and thus unable to look into other windows of the world (i.e. English is not limited just to US or UK, it’s a global language, official for over 50 countries, that’s quarter of the world represented, compared to 5 countries or 1/40th using the Russian language) It’s much easier to to manipulate the masses in such “closed” language society, compared to “open” language societies. Fact.

Now stick back to boxing and leave the politics out of it.

Oh I ten with the Russian propaganda because I disagree with your NATO propaganda. Stick to the facts. The elected government of Ukraine was overthrown by a NATO colour revolution, and now will be asset stripped by the EU and the IMF. They were pissed about the 20 year extension the Ukraine government signed with Russia for its only warm water port in Crimea. Look at the characters now on the boards of Ukrainian institutions, even Bidens brother has an executive job in Ukraine. No corruption there then. After IMF shock therapy, the entire Ukraine will revolt against this coup. Like I said, check out Webster Tarpley. Repeating CNN is the height of ignorance, and the height of being propagandised.

Anonymous: You’ve obviously been ran over with Russian propaganda engine, tell me one simple thing, why they fire 100% Russian weapons then and no NATO weapons if the Wall Street people are fully funding them? As of “friendship” – I know an Ukrainian who says otherwise, he must never tell he’s from Ukraine while in Russia, he’ll get offended, abused if not sometimes beaten by local men, he says his accent offten is an issue so has to keep very low profile to survive the daily abuse. This comes as a surprise being ex-Soviet country, the same for i.e. Usbek, Tajik or Kazakh workers there, Russians are very xenophobic and highly intolerand society (see their gay protests and random beatings & killings for this on their streets). I remember following a group of Russian tourists in US, taking up the whole path for themselves like they’re some kings of the mountain, while couple of Japanese tryed to pass them from them humbly from the very corner of the road, they immediately screamed in russian “Go home idiots!” “We won the war!” to them, nearly attackting them. Very pleasant and friendly people the Russians are… Talk about intolerant and xenophobic society, always blaming everybody else for their own greed.

Mo, Ukranians are never at risk in Russia. Remember this entire fascist coup/ colour revolution was funded and organised by the usual Wall Street asset predators, using Klitchko as a useful idiot. Go to Webster Tarpleys website for more info.

Boxing is not violence to me. I don’t care how violent it can be. It’s a game. It’s like football, baseball, basketball, tennis, golf, or any other sport you want to play. You can suffer injuries in any sport and in sport you have rules.

You can’t kick somebody in the head in Boxing. You can’t elbow them… throw them down… knee them in the head… twist their arm… put them in a headlock… wrench their leg… choke them out… or slam them on their head… or punch them in their testicles.

Boxing has very defined rules of combat. It’s a gentlemen’s sport. It’s both a science and an art … I don’t go about giving Boxing greater or more important meaning than it has… It’s a very popular and great game, and I loved to play it and I love to watch it … and that’s it.

You have jerks in Boxing and you have great people in Boxing.. The sport doesn’t make you a good person or a bad one.. Whatever you are, it makes you more of that.

Edit: I’m not ukrainian, but was following the WSB with great intrest, and this particular example really gave a black eye to it but glad the Ukrainian team wasn’t shot or mobbed in Russia though.

Very human and excellent article. But forgots to mention the unfairness of this particular example: the ukrainian team had to fight on two corrupt fronts. First in Donetsk, which is very pro-russian city to claim they were on “Ukrainian” land by the Russians (they were not, it should had been in Kiev), and before they had to meet in Russia itself. Guess the results. Really says how much political power, leveled field to their advantage and greed the Russia has, even in the WSB context. They called it an “achievement” but I see it as a shame for WSB really, not to be able to give fair ground to the Ukrainian team in the current political turmoil.
