Another shocking story

01-10-2014

In his Nobel Speech on Literature: , One Word of Truth', Alexander Solzhenitsyn wrote:

"But let us not forget that violence does not exist alone and cannot survive in isolation: it is inevitably bound up with the lie. Between them there is the most intimate, most natural, fundamental link: violence can only be concealed by the lie, and the lie can be maintained only by violence. Anyone who has once proclaimed that violence is his method is inevitably forced to choose the lie as his guiding principle."

The attached shocking story of the forgotten death of one of the Russian soldiers sent to fight in the Ukraine is a telling example. Under President Putin, the lie, again is the guiding principle of Russian foreign policy.
