The Russian military responded to criticism of new year calendar of the Ministry of defense
MOSCOW, December 29. /TASS/. The Russian military responded to Western criticism of the Christmas calendar from the defense Ministry. A statement published Saturday in the official Gazette of the Russian Armed forces newspaper Krasnaya Zvezda.
“If someone is threatened by a simple leaf of the calendar, then it’s either imagination, something is not right, or someone who judges others solely on their own, in their perverted world-view”, — the newspaper of the defense Ministry.
The article notes that it is primarily concerned with the West, which continues to seek “a missing black cat in a dark room.”
“Some Western media broke out with critical statements, where this is a small pre-Christmas gift with attribute bias is presented almost as a confirmation of bellicose rhetoric of the Russian state”, — writes “the Red star”.
In the calendar of the Ministry of defense of Russia, presented on 24 December, image of Russian weapons and military personnel are accompanied by humorous comments or memes from social networks.
For example, the Russian machine gunner on one of the pages of the calendar are signed as a “PC user”, and the page with the female soldier, aiming a machine gun, accompanied by the phrase “some women blows a head.”
