Russia’s independent press and the Japanese geography

Today, "Nezavisimaya Gazeta" Yamamoto sent a minister to the North Kuriles, and "Iterfaks" in the South, both on the same island, Iturup and Kunashir.

Northern Kuriles this newspaper:

Southern Kurils This agency:

Both newspapers gave the news at the same time at 12:54 and at 12:55. "Interfax" referred to the Japanese TV channel, but gave the correct geographical location of "Southern Kuril Islands". "Nezavisimaya Gazeta" did not bother geographical difficulties and took the Japanese version of geography.


Kurile Islands — A chain of islands between the Kamchatka Peninsula and the island of Hokkaido, slightly convex arc separating the Sea of Okhotsk from the Pacific Ocean. Length — about 1,200 km. Iturup and Kunashir includedSouthern groupKuril Islands.


What is "Japanese geography"?

Call Iturup and Kunashir "northern" may, at its discretion, only Japanese nationalists, imperialists, the authorities, the media and the people of Japan. It is their internal affair. The fact that the islands were once part of Japan. The Japanese called them "northern" because they are from the north of Japan.

For Russia and the rest of the world, these islands are a group of South Kurils, then consideredSouthern.
Since September 1945, the islands were owned by the Soviet Union, as enshrined higher signatures in various international instruments. Japan greatly offended, created by the Ministry of Northern territories, more like the Polish or the Abkhaz government-in-exile, and even more like a group of clowns.

Calling Iturup and Kunashir "northern islands", "Nezavisimaya Gazeta" recognizes that runs on the Japanese. For us, does not matter to whom it is working, "Nezavisimaya Gazeta", for us, in principle, that it works against Russia.

You can also refer to the fact that it was a misunderstanding, that in this paper employs people with poor intelligence and education. Then the question should be put in an entirely different plane. By what right, these nedozhurnalisty got the right to disseminate information on a large scale, to influence the formation of opinion of millions of people, giving them a distorted, negative selection, and sometimes outright lies?
