Comment on Angola’s sovereign fund pays $100 million to a shell company by i.ncube https://www.indexoncensorship.org/2015/04/angolas-sovereign-fund-pays-100-million-to-a-shell-company/#comment-2370809 Mon, 13 Apr 2015 14:59:37 +0000 https://www.indexoncensorship.org/?p=65546#comment-2370809 Rafael Marques de Morais does not offer a balanced view and is an angola hater. he never mentions what has been achieved since 2002, remarkable progress for any country coming out of war since the marshall plans in ww2. i would listen to him more if he also spoke about the fall on unemployment since 2002 from 80% to 20%, of the fall of inflation from 90 to under 10%, the rebiulding of schools, roads railways, hospitals and the thousands of angolans sent to study abroad. angola was at war for 30 years, what does this man expect? a modern democracy in 12. he is baised and seeks only self empowerment and hero status. there is no brutal war in angola (though small probs in cabinda) this should be celerbrated with a balanced approach.

Comment on Lithuania bans Russian language channel for “inciting discord” by Jaayman https://www.indexoncensorship.org/2015/04/lithuania-bans-russian-language-channel-inciting-discord/#comment-2370801 Sun, 12 Apr 2015 15:46:53 +0000 http://www.indexoncensorship.org/?p=65456#comment-2370801 This was long overdue. Russian TV channels are consistently and constantly trying to incite ethnic hatred and tensions between the Russian ethnic minority and local populations in the Baltic countries. Every time I switch on a Russian state news channel I get shocked seeing the abundance of lies and propaganda shown there as ‘news’.

Azerbaijan really deserves to host this competition and I think it would better for all to focuse on exactly European Games.

Leyla & Arif Yunus did so. “Blackmail” of Azerbaijan will not work. Azerbaijan remains reliable and strong partner of Europe. After terror act in Baku subway in 1992,14 citizens shot dead. Leyla Yunus got much money from parents of killers. 
Leyla Yunus is included those killers into list of political prisoners. Do you defend her so far?

During the games, the world’s attention will be on Azerbaijan. Tens of thousands of people, with tourists, journalists, business people, will arrive in the country.
