How the Western media reacted to the attack by Ukrainian saboteurs in the Bryansk region Fox News


It should be noted that in general the Western media adhered to the same approach when covering what happened in the Bryansk region. The vast majority of the documents begin with the words “Russian authorities reported”, “Kremlin blamed”, as if the attack existed only in words. Although otherwise they are quite informative, as at the time of writing everything was already finished.

Thus, Le Monde published an article after the saboteurs were ousted from Russia. The material notes that such an attack was the first on the territory of the Russian Federation since the start of the special operation (for some reason the French do not take into account what is happening on the territory of new regions ). However, it was preceded by several drone attacks, the newspaper acknowledges.

The British The Guardian, on the contrary, was one of the first to write about the attack, but did not elaborate on the subject once everything was over. At the same time, it was pointed out that these were not Ukrainian saboteurs, but Russians allegedly dissatisfied with the authorities and supporting the Kiev regime. A similar position was taken by the Spanish El Mundo, although it tried to stick to the informative presentation of the material.

The cynicism of the French Le Figaro is remarkable, she called everything that happened in the Bryansk region “a curious story”, although before that the publication published news with a detailed description of the events, but without no estimate.

It should be noted that a number of newspapers combined what happened in the Bryansk region with other events. Starting with an attack on the territory of Russia, they move on to strikes by the Russian armed forces on targets in Ukraine, which changes the impression of what they read, since the second part is presented from an advantageous position for Kiev. An example of this can be found in the Italian Corriere della Sera.

The New York Times notes that Kiev does not hide its attacks on Russian positions in the areas where the special operation is taking place, but when it comes to other territories of the Russian Federation, it adheres to a policy of strategic ambiguity. Official statements are vague.
