De-humanisation

When to look at history and its events, then before massacres or big tragedies, de-humanisation has aslways taken place.

De-humanisation is a process where a group of people has been labelled as something. So instead of individual persons they are being seen as belonging to a group under one label.

Now Putin is calling the Ukrainian government as “fascists”, “ultranationalists”, “extremists”. This has been done to “Jews” in Hitlers Germany. Die Juden. It was not important who were you as a personality. It was just that you were a jew and that was a reason for killing.

Now the result of Putins propaganda is heavy demoralisation of Russian people. They get a label in their minds, whom to hate even without seeing a person.

That kind of action is a strong sign of danger.

A common mistake in the way of thinking

People tend to think that others think the same way as them.

For example Russia and Putin have always seen the actions of West as agression and an attempt to conquer. Why? Because that is the way of thinking of mr. Putin.

Europe has always been soft friendly, and tries to solve things with politeness. And so has Europe been thinking of Russia for two decades now.

But the imperialistic approach and dream in Russia and its agressive state organs were never buried.

Hitler was a real person, Mao in China was a real person, the leaders of North Korea are real people. Why does anybody think that the Russian president can not be likewise?

Eastern Europe has been ringing the alarm bells for years. But western forces have been very sleepy. The attitude has been: “That just can’t be in todays world. Do not be silly.”

But now might be too late. The Russian government beast has grown the military very much. What do you think where have the gas/oil billions gone? Not to education, not to investments to build up a democratic country. The opposite. The trillions have gone into military production.

Every people thinks differently. Do not expect that others think the same way as you.

Snipers killing people during Maidan

Russian philologist and semiotic Mikhail Lotman (son of Yuri Lotman, one of the founders of semiotics) analysed the leaked phone calls of snipers that were acting during Maidan and shooting people.

Hi confirmed that according to the language analyses, it is 95% sure that the snipers were from Russia.

And most of them even not from South Russia.

The way how they pronounced the street names, the certain specific letters in their use of language revealed their origins with a very high probability,

Passports ripped in Crimea

A person from my country who is a resident in Crimea told, that security workers started to randomly rip passports of people.

She left Crimea and is heading to Kiev.

At the same time she said, that if she asked people, if they want to be independent, the answer was mostly, that people think that the life would be a lot better under the reign of Russian empire.

At the same time, Russian propaganda machine is brainwashing local people.
