Ukrainians of all faiths reject my argument and blame instead Russian President Vladimir Putin who was said to have been bent on occupying Ukraine and making it part of a larger Russia. But there is no evidence in public records to support this claim, creating real problems both in Kyiv and in the West. How do they deal with me? The answer, of course, is to call me a Russian propagandist, which I am not.”

Finally, Greenwald described everything as one ‘Ordinary McCarthy folly’: War advocates in the West and other officials in Western state security agencies have used the same tactics for decades to demonize anyone who questions US and NATO foreign policy. The most important ones, dating back to the beginning cold Waris an accusation of spreading “Russian propaganda” or otherwise serving the Kremlin.”
