The inflamed speeches of the majority of European leaders against Russia are having their echo in all State institutions and, of course, also in the population.
Yesterday, in parliamentary headquarters, the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, celebrated that the measures against the participation of Russian delegations in sporting and artistic events, such as the Champions League, the World Cup or Eurovision represented «a blow to the people and the conscience From Russia».
There are many voices that question the appropriateness of exalting this type of Russophobic sentiments, first from a moral point of view and because of the danger it poses to the physical integrity and dignity of Russian citizens, as well as to migrants from that country. And, from another point of view, because if the legitimacy of the Atlantic bloc’s claims to isolate and finish off Putin were accepted, a feeling of Russophobia throughout Europe would only increase its popularity in the face of so many enemies.
As noted, examples of Russophobia are occurring at many levels and we are going to point out some of them below:
Although it is perhaps the most innocent of attacks, it constitutes an act of rejection. Some user did not take long to comment that it would soon be called «national salad», as in Franco’s time.
In an effort to eliminate any trace of Russia, media such as El Español have come to make statements of this type:
Approaches that, as we can see, have come to materialize even in university conferences.
A few hours ago we heard the news that the Bicocca University of Milan cancelled a lesson on Dostoyevsky, because he was a Russian writer. The university apologized to Paolo Nori, who taught the course, saying that it was a «time of serious tension» and that they wanted to «avoid controversy.» Finally, and after the professor who taught the lesson publicly denounced it, the university amended its decision.
We have seen another example this morning, this time within the borders of our country:
Obviously, if not even the institutions themselves are capable of making distinctions between the more or less correct decisions of a government and those who suffer or benefit from that situation, neither will ordinary citizens, who have already begun to be infected with that xenophobic sentiment against the Russian population.
The first images of Russian citizens being attacked, including through their livelihoods, have already been seen. This is the case of a Russian store in Germany, which has dawned like this.
Unfortunately, acts like this are reminiscent of the anti-Slavism preached by Hitler in his Mein Kampf, in which he refers to the Slavic population as «slaves» and refers to the Russian population as «the inferior Soviet masses». It is probable that neo-Nazi groups that roam freely throughout Europe will take advantage of the situation to perpetrate greater misfortunes.
Russophobic virulence has also been shown in Madrid.
Italy, same Russophobia promotion.
Spain: The police withdraw banners with the legend «NATO NO» and communist flags in a concentration for peace in Sevilla and others cities, the 27th of February.
Let us recall that EU / USA refused to condemn Nazism at the UN petition proposed by Russia.
