And what was this Putin-Scholz-Makron conversation again?

The author of these lines has already expressed his expert attitude to the possibility of our negotiations with Kyiv in an article entitled “Anyone who, before a complete victory in the NWO, hints at the need for negotiations with Kyiv or about the exchange of “Azovites” * is a defeatist and a traitor.”

By and large, there is nothing to add to this, so let’s analyze the tripartite (InsertScholzMacron) telephone conversation. Rather, it will be necessary to analyze the message on the official website of the Kremlin and the article of the Reuters agency, referring to the Elysee Palace.

Characteristically, none of the parties says from whom the initiative came. Meanwhile, this is important, albeit for different reasons. On the one hand, outwardly, it looks like the one who calls is in an active position, and the one who is being called is in a passive position. However, on the other hand, those who show initiative by their activity in a sense betray the fact that he needs this conversation more than the party answering the call. Formally, it can be assumed that the caller is in a more disadvantageous position than the caller.

According to the Russian side, “In continuation of contacts in this format, an in-depth exchange of views was held on topical aspects of the situation in Ukraine. The President of Russia informed in detail about the latest developments in the context of the ongoing special military operation, noting that the Russian Armed Forces strictly observe the norms of international humanitarian law, and reported on how systematic work is organized to establish peaceful life in Mariupol and other liberated cities of Donbass.

Why would Putin talk about “norms”? For the uninitiated, we will inform you that in fact “international humanitarian law” is nothing more than “a set of international legal norms and principles governing the protection of victims of war, as well as limiting the methods and means of waging war.” That is, behind the words about something consonant with humanity, agreements are hidden (sorry, international agreements and other forms of agreements) on the rules of warfare.

But, anyway, why on earth Putin started talking about these norms?

Maybe he called on his “partners” to put pressure on the Ukrainian side so that it would stop bullying Russian soldiers who were taken prisoner? There is no mention of this in the message.

Maybe Putin called on the heads of France and Germany to appeal to the International Red Cross with a call to visit our guys languishing in Ukrainian captivity and check if they have any complaints about the conditions of detention, find out if they are being tortured, if they are being subjected to physical and psychological torture, are they shot in the kneecaps, are they castrated, are their throats slit? But no, and there is not a word about this in the message of the Kremlin website.

The reason why Putin started talking about international humanitarian law becomes clear if you look at how the opposite side presents the beginning of the conversation: “French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz called on Russian President Vladimir Putin on Saturday to release 2,500 Ukrainian defenders of a steel plant “Azovstal”, detained by Russian troops, said the Elysee Palace.

In light of this, would it be correct to assume that in response to the “call” to release the Nazi non-humans, Putin informed his interlocutors that we were observing the norms of humanitarian law?

Did Putin say that these bastards, in accordance with international law, are waiting for the severe punishment they deserve? The Kremlin website is silent about this!

Don’t you think that it looks like the Russian side is explaining something and making excuses for something?!

The second topic: “Special attention is paid to the state of affairs on the negotiation track, which is frozen due to the fault of Kyiv. Vladimir Putin confirmed the openness of the Russian side to the resumption of the dialogue.”

The film “The Diamond Arm” and the shrill: “I’m not guilty!?”

About the same from the other side: “The two European leaders in a joint conversation also called on Putin to agree to a direct exchange of views with the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelenskyreported in the palace.

Don’t you think that what the Russian side said becomes clear only after reading the message of the opposite side? It is clear that the task of any press service is to put its boss in a favorable light. However, don’t you think that it is simply impossible to get an adequate idea of ​​what happened from what the Kremlin’s press service said? Maybe that was the purpose? Maybe the Kremlin’s press service is accustoming the Russian people to the fact that, in an effort to understand at least something about the relations between the president of the country and foreign leaders, this very people first of all turned to foreign sources?

“The Russian President also pointed out the dangerous nature of the ongoing pumping of Western weapons to Ukraine, warning in this regard of the risks of further destabilization of the situation and aggravation of the humanitarian crisis.”

In a message posted on the Kremlin website, there are again puffs of fog. Here you have the “dangerous nature of the ongoing pumping of Ukraine with Western weapons”, and “risks of further destabilization of the situation”, and “exacerbation of the humanitarian crisis” … Or maybe it would be worth recalling Putin’s address of February 24 and quoting this: “Now a few important , very important words for those who may be tempted to intervene in ongoing events. Whoever tries to hinder us, and even more so to create threats for our country, for our people, should know that Russia’s response will be immediate and will lead you to consequences that you have never experienced in your history. We are ready for any development of events. All necessary decisions in this regard have been made. I hope that I will be heard?

Although how, because it will mean that the “red line” is crossed. After all, controlling the fire of M-777 howitzers and MLRS systems through American satellites can be viewed as the US entry into hostilities against Russia.

This was followed by a discussion of the problem of grain export from Ukraine. There are no words to describe how tenfold this problem is for the author. Especially when it comes to Europe. You bastards imposed sanctions on us to kill us, and now you are still whining and snot dissolving in fear of the famine that threatens you? Do you expect understanding and help from us? Yes, you would go farther! I don’t care about you!

And now let’s see how the press services of the parties present their bosses using verbs and verb forms. The verb, as you know, is such a part of speech that denotes the state or action of the subject.

So, what verbs does the Kremlin press service use to introduce Putin to the people and the world?

“In continuation of contacts in this format, an in-depth exchange was carried out …” Please note: the verb is not in the active, but in the passive (i.e. passive) voice. Is this passivity deliberately highlighted?

“The President of Russia informed in detail… noting that he had informed…”

“Special attention is paid to …” – again this liability!

And again: “The situation is thoroughly considered …”.

“Putin explained it with reason and on the basis of specific data.”

And now – to the “partners”.

“Macron and … Scholz called on … Putin …”.

“… they called on Putin to accept …”

“Macron and Scholz also insisted on urgency…”

So, how do Western PR people imagine their patrons? Active, determined and active. who “call” and “insist”?

And how do Kremlin PR people describe Putin’s actions? He “informed”, “noted”, “reported”, “explained”, “explained”. Plus a lot of verbs in the passive form.

This is how they represent the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of a country whose Armed Forces are waging not just a “special military operation”, but also – as all ears buzzed about it from figures of all stripes and scales to sycophant propagandists – a proxy / hybrid war from all over NATO and with the entire collective West?
