Do you remember the growing chorus of voices in the Western media, the singing of the "rising tide" of emigration from Putin's Russia? About 1.25 million of those liberal professionals who over the past few years, fled the neo-Soviet underworld? It turns out that all these stories are not only a complete fabrication (in my previous article, I showed that the real statistics, in contrast to the rumors and speculation, indicating a decline in immigration to the lowest level) — this is fiction, originating in the Russian liberal media . Words government official whose department has nothing to emigrate, were highly misquoted and distorted to give the impression of a powerful outcome for the last few years, although he spoke of the post-Soviet period as a whole! Nevertheless, due to excessive laziness and / or ideological biases that prevent it take to check the facts, this false story spread to the main liberal media Russia, and from there to Western publications (where sit at least lazy and rusofobstvo scribblers) such as Julian Evans (Julian Evans) of the Wall Street Journal and Simon &Schuster (Simon Shuster) of TIME. The whole story about how Russian liberals invented the myth of the "second wave of emigration," carefully and painstakingly restored in every detail Nikolai Starikov in an article in his blog, which is called "How to create a liberal myth." Here it is:
The recipe is simple: a little manipulation, lies and a little more emotion. And — another "duck" of Russia is ready. A good deal in the kitchen stryapaniya liberal myths about our country. Lie is always several steps. Step One: "Reckless quote." Radio "Echo of Moscow", Saturday, January 15, 2011, the program «Dura Lex» In the studio, Michael Barschevsky and Chairman of the Audit Chamber Sergei Stepashin. Nice talking with each other Happy New Year congratulations. Sergei Stepashin feel relaxed and comfortable. And he said the following words in a discussion with Barshchevsky "M.BARSCHEVSKY … You're talking now about the innovation. And in fact, violating human rights, that these rights, common law rights, without providing him security, not allowing him to judicial protection, we lost a lot of brains, which today we would be very useful in innovation. SS: But I have the exact figures. 1.25 million people working abroad. It's not the worst of our … M.BARSCHEVSKY: You mean not plumbers? SS: Well, it's academics, professionals. M.BARSCHEVSKY: Million 250,000? SS: One million 250 thousand. It took about as much since 1917. " So, what Stepashin said? He said that today work outside Russia 1250000 Russians. Intelligent, educated, scholars and experts. Now pay attention — the head of the Audit Chamber said nothing about when these people have left the country. It was a different story: today work outside Russia 1000000 250 smart goals. And when they left? But for the entire post-Soviet period. And most likely, including the later period of the Soviet Union. You have to be careful with Sergei V. numbers. You have to be careful with words, with his office, but on a radio station. [AK: "Echo of Moscow" is one of the major media voices Russian liberals]. Step two: "pereviranie quotes and creation of lies." After the radio broadcast Liberals did two things: 1. They began to replicate a figure of 1.25 million people, as obtained from a reputable source — from the head of the Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation. As if the Chamber we consider leaving the country. [AK: Of course, do not think so. It is the task of the Federal Migration Service.] 2. They presented this figure is not the number of Russians working abroad, and the number of emigrants from Putin's Russia. The difference, I hope, is clear. Before you lies the synthesis of carelessly spoken words Stepashin. Here are a few randomly selected Internet headers. "According to the Chamber during the last years of the Russian emigration in the left 1.25 million people." "The effect of Putin's 10th anniversary: Smart people are fleeing from Russia. The country has covered another wave of emigration. The West has left 1.25 million Russians. From Russia again massively flee abroad. If we believe the calculations head of the Accounting Chamber Sergey Stepashin, in recent years, left the country 1.25 million people. " Next, connect to the process is not simple, "parrot", and commentators pokvalifitsirovannee. The goal is the same — the creation of fake and newsworthy to say "all that we have lost." "1,250,000 immigrants. Why flows away from Russia human capital? "- Says the name of the program on the radio" Finam FM ". Start at the appropriate program: "So, according to the calculations of the head of the Audit Chamber Sergei Stepashin, in recent years of Russian emigration in left 1.25 million people. This is the only official statistics. " On a visit to his radio manipulators invited Dmitry Polikanova, deputy head of the Central Executive Committee of the party "United Russia". But for him, and to all the listeners figure has served as the official figures to leave in recent years. Here's how he put the question: "Dmitry, please tell me, that the younger generation of leaders of the party" United Russia "does not makes you think such statistics or she is within a generally acceptable, it may not mean anything, it's normal? 1,250,000 left in recent years, but that's okay. " Trick — sort of like arguing with Stepashin young functionary of "United Russia" with no hands. Read the source of the information and make sure that Sergei V. had in mind, and said, not what they say leading liberals do not have time and desire. We are all liberals are always caught in one and the same — most normal people do not know the rules of the information war. They can not even imagine that liars will deliberately distort and falsify the facts and words. Both liberals use it. They are simply and blatantly lie. Just remember — do not believe any quoted by the Liberals. In most cases, this will be either a lie or a deliberate manipulation. Check refute. But the young Polikanov "bought" by liberal figures, taking them at face value, and did not argue with the figure of 1.25 million people, have left in recent years. And thus it would be confirmed as. And "independent" journalists only that it should be. Now we can also refer to the discussion: here was a functionary of a United Russia did not argue, agreed. That means 1.25 million who left just out of the country — the truth. Next figure "goes into blogs," and becomes obscheupotreblyaemoy. It is now a good example of that "Putin's Russia" can not live a normal life. Plugs and "Moskovsky Komsomolets", where is the famous "master" pen Minkin. He wrote an article entitled "Run of the tandem""The Chamber has officially announced:" During the last years of the Russian left 1.25 million people. " The wave of immigration is slightly smaller than after 1917. These findings are confirmed by the Director of the Federal Migration Service Romodanovskiy: "The order of 300-350 thousand Russians are leaving each year to work abroad." How many returns, he said. " As is to be the maitre, Minkin lying on a grand scale. The Chamber did not officially informed about emigration, and can not. It's just not its function. "Maitre" Minkin not only repeats the distorted words of Sergei Stepashin, but creatively recycles the speech of the Federal Migration Service Konstantin Romodanovskii. After all said, in fact, that the following: "Each year from Russia leaving more than 300 thousand Russians, of which a
bout 40,000 — a permanent place of residence." That is, leave all of the country's total of 40 thousand people. The other study, work, travel, but returned. Very similar data we receive and Rosstat. Let's just in contrast to the "independent" journalists be honest. Where to go, where to "run" from the "bad" life in Russia its citizens? Of course, the same as in the "civilized world". Therefore, we take a figure who left in the so-called non-CIS [AK: This refers to the world outside the former Soviet Union]. After all, is not the same in Moldova and Georgia are leaving our countrymen. Year emigrants to foreign countries 1997 — 86026 1998 — 82327 1999 — 87156 2000 — 63408 2001 — 59596 2002 — 54586 2003 — 47937 2004 — 42778 2005 — 33689 2006 — 18799 2007 — 15684 2008 — 13394 turns out that in the 12 years of the country's left 605,380 people. And the tendency is that every year more and less. Unfortunately, the Federal State Statistics Service does not provide statistics for 2009 and 2010 [AK: He gives, but you have to dig into its database, and from it can be seen that the trend has continued, and as of this year the balance of migration from countries such as Germany and Israel , was even positive!]. But in 2008 he left Russia 39508 people, including 13394 in foreign countries person. Do you believe that the 2009 and 2010 out of the country threw stream 1.2 million people, despite the fact that the previous year had left a little less than 40,000? Step Three: Blackening of the country. There are already quite randomly and independently connected "Novaya Gazeta" [AK: NG is the most hysterical and reacting reflexively liberal anti-Putin newspaper]. After successful creation of the previous stage and the "legitimate" lies, NG confidently says, "Oh unprecedented flight from Russia at the end of zero for the first time a senior official spoke. Chairman of the Audit Chamber Sergei Stepashin in January announced figure — in 2008 left the country of 1.25 million people are economically active population. And the outflow continues. Although Stepashin predictably did not speak about the reasons, the current wave of emigration unconditionally enter the list of pending developments "Putin's eight-year stability. '" Read the article "Novaya Gazeta". Paphos photos. The general tone of all lost, Russia, we have lost. Now, remember what I said actually Stepashin? Do you still believe the liberal media? But for us the story of the lies and distortion, which very often carry fighters "for our freedom and yours", just an excuse to take a sober look at the situation with the departure of the Russian people who can bring her favor. To sum up: 1. Beyond the borders of our country are working 1,250,000 emigrants over the past 20 or more years of Russian smart and talented people. 2. From the Russian brain drain continues. But judging by the declining numbers each year (39,508 people in 2008), we can safely say that all the time scale emigration reduced. 3. You can also see clearly that ran the bulk of our wise heads in the period of "reform" and "liberalism" as effective managers and those same liberals are destroying science and industry, and not at all in recent years. 4. Sergei Stepashin do not need to sit back on the air of "Echo of Moscow". He should carefully watch their words, each of which can be used against Russia in the information war. 5. Believe quoted by the liberal media, "independent journalists" can not in any case. Deceived, as rogues in the market weight wrong unsuspecting buyer. 6. Check everything yourself, think well on their own. The main testing tool — common sense. 7. You must love your country. Love will always know what is truth. — But there is a fourth stage — Western metamorphosis. At this stage, hack, inhabiting the western journalism, reprinted theses Russian liberals, but because they are just lazy and just hate Russia as liberasty (and in some cases do not even know the Russian language), checking the primary sources are usually not included in the list of their priorities. And indeed in any list is not included. Hence, the obtained articles with such titles here: "Why did they leave?" (Julian Evans, Wall Street Journal)"Why do young entrepreneurs are fleeing Russia" (Simon &Schuster, TIME) "Blues emigration sixth brain drain from Russia" (Brian Whitmore, Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty). Thus, what started out as a manipulation of the liberals and the dregs of Russian media, falls into the marginal publications such as the "Novaya Gazeta", and from there — to the soaring heights of what passes for western "journalism." PS also compare all this with the liberal slander "Nezavisimaya Gazeta" on Russia's demographics, and with the way the myth of the liberal media hype about the wave of abortions because of the crisis in early 2009, although the number of abortions has continued to decline, while the birth rate increased. Truly, there is no end in sight of the Russian liberal lies.
