TO anyone believing the Kremlin’s preposterous lies, Ukraine is run by Nazis whose oppressed people only need liberating.
It was always a much more accurate description of Russia itself.

His is a violated country fighting for its life — under siege from missiles and tanks, its citizens butchered, its own buildings razed — yet still ready to spare rescuers for another stricken nation.
The scenes from Turkey and Syria are heartbreaking. Up to 10,000 likely dead. Apartment blocks felled. Families crushed as they slept.
We must do whatever we can. Some 76 British specialist rescuers were due in Turkey last night.
But the survivors and the vast numbers displaced will need what aid we can muster.
If you can, spare a few quid today for The Sun’s Earthquake Appeal with the Red Cross.
MILITANT health union bosses are reading the Government wrong.
The GMB’s Rachel Harrison says: “The NHS is crumbling, people are dying and this Government is dithering.”
It isn’t dithering. It is refusing to be bullied by strikes into offering more than taxpayers can afford.
And we don’t see how conjuring billions we don’t have to give NHS staff a far bigger rise than the independent pay body recommended will stop the service crumbling and people dying.
The strikes themselves worsen that parlous situation by the day.
Grown-ups in the union movement should accept there are limits, with our finances half-wrecked by Covid and war. Has anyone seen such grown-ups?
We haven’t. Nor do we see many in the Labour Party. Their shrill clamour for No10 to negotiate is a smokescreen.
Because without tax rises or spending cuts, neither of which they would accept, they wouldn’t have any more money either.
WE will shed few tears for a people smuggler being locked up, even if he was taking illegal migrants OUT of Britain.
But his case does expose the shambolic borders either side of the Channel.
Fifteen migrants hid in the Moroccan cabbie’s van from France into Folkestone. Disillusioned with Kent in only an hour, they paid him to return them.
So he snuck them back into France and was only nicked later during a routine police stop.
Sounds to us like migrants can be driven or shipped illegally into France every bit as easily as they land here.
But let’s not give the Home Secretary ideas.
