The Soviet Legacy of Lies
To round out our trilogy today on lies and the lying Russian liars who tell them, which began by exposing the lies told by Putin’s sycophants and will conclude by documenting the lies he himself spews out on a daily basis, it’s fitting to turn to the topic of history. Putin himself is firmly anchored, of course, in Russia’s Soviet past. He’s a proud KGB spy who spent most of his life working to advance the goals of the USSR.
Which included, of course, relentlessly lying about anything and everything, all the time. Take for instance the USSR’s recently exposed jaw-dropping duplicity on the subject of commercial whaling.
