In an interview with Sputnik Italy, Giulietto Chiesa said that all this is done to take public attention away from domestic problems with mainstream media portraying the closing days of the siege of Aleppo as one big bloodbath perpetrated by Russian-backed Syrian government forces.
“The humanitarian tragedy does exist, no denying that, but the media, the main protagonist of the hybrid war, pretends that it has no recollection of who created this tragic situation and who is trying to make it go forever.”
“Television, this “heavy artillery” of the Anglo-Saxon propaganda machine, is the only source of information hundreds of millions of people can get about what is going on. There is no trace of any Russian press releases or television reports which offer a different picture of what is really happening in Syria,” Giulietto Chiesa continued.
He added that the information that is being fed to the Western public is 100-percent war propaganda.
“They have stopped talking about murderous terrorists who now are being pitied and sympathized with.”
“Therefore, one has every reason to say that we are bearing witness to modern and very sophisticated hybrid war, a strange mix of real bombings of civilians and virtual attacks on Western people’s minds,” Giulietto Chiesa said in conclusion.
