Internet Censorship of RT goes on Unreported - This time regarding an Act of War against Russia

Photo of US Spy Plane Censored in RT report

I've been meaning to write a post about the creeping censorship and degeneration of the Internet. But a couple of Fake Newz stories have been taking up my time. Today I've decided to at least draw my reader(s) attention to blatant and childish censorship going on regarding the Russian news outlet RT. Here is a report on the use of an American Spy Plane to facilitate a "terror" drone attack on the Russian base in Syria that occurred last January. Please read and I will have more comments to follow:

"....A senior Russian military official has accused the US of being directly involved in a drone attack on the Russian airbase in Syria’s Khmeimim. The aircraft were controlled from a US spy plane nearby, he claimed.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov was speaking about a report made by Russia’s Defense Ministry. It said that the drone attack on the Russian airbase was directed from a US P-8 Poseidon surveillance plane.

The base located in Latakia governorate has been attacked by primitive drones on numerous occasions. According to Col. Gen. Aleksandr Fomin, Russia’s deputy defense minister, the attack on January 6 was done with direct help from the American military.

Speaking at a high-profile security forum in China, Fomin said a Boeing P-8 Poseidon was deployed in the area on that date, when 13 drones were launched to attack the Russian base. The US reconnaissance plane took control of the drones once the troops defending the base used electronic warfare to disrupt the control signals for the UAVs."

Greencrow says: Please note the photo above that accompanied the story.  Like many major stories from RT lately, the photo has been "censored".  It's starting to get silly.  It reminds me of the BBC reports years ago on the "troubles" in Northern Ireland...where the BBC would not allow the voice of Gerry Adams, at the time the leader of the IRA, to be heard during broadcasts, but instead "dubbed" his voice with another "generic" voice--making the whole newz report somewhat bizarre and ridiculous.  So, here we go again.

But the most disturbing thing is that Russia is still agreeing that Putin meet personally with Trump in Paris within the next few weeks.  Given that the US committed an "act of war" by attacking the Russian base with drones last January...I find it perplexing to say the least that Russia would put Putin in harms way by allowing him to be in such close proximity to the US officials.  They obviously consider themselves to be in a state of war with Russia.  Like I say, it's just a matter of time.
