Bellingcat’s (race) war against RT: Russians didn’t kill George Floyd, but are STILL BAD, say internet ‘sleuths’
Bellingcat, the UK-based enablers of Western narratives in Syria and Ukraine now fueling US race riots, selectively translated a satirical post from Russian social media shared by RTs editor in chief to get her canceled.
On Sunday, Margarita Simonyan shared a Telegram post by Dmitry Steshin, a war correspondent for the newspaper KP, which purported to give “advice” to rioters in the US how to make their uprising more “successful” along the lines of the US-backed 2014 coup in Ukraine.
Given that the post was entirely in Russian, it was obvious that the real objective of Steshin – and Simonyan – was to comment on the Maidan in Kiev and the ensuing war in Ukraine. Not so, declared the self-proclaimed experts on “open-source” intelligence. Bellingcat selectively translated a handful of sentences from Steshin’s post and accused Simonyan of – what else? – racism.
Margarita Simonyan, editor-in-chief of RT, shared incredibly racist "advice" to "Minnesota negrs" [the word has several meanings in Russian: coloreds, blacks, negroes]— Bellingcat (@bellingcat) May 31, 2020
The re-post is from Dmitry Steshin, a journalist known for his nationalist views.

“You deliberately missed [the] point of the post. It was satirising behaviour of Maidan supporters in 2014, through [the] prism of current unrest. It wasn’t aimed at black protestors in 2020,” RT responded on Twitter.
Indeed, Simonyan’s post starts with “good advice to black people of Minnesota from a journalist who covered seven Maidans and color revolutions” – referring to US-backed astroturfed protests that often escalated into riots for the purpose of regime change. Being in Russian, though, the advice was clearly not meant for Minnesotans.
While Steshin’s post might use rough language, “humor norms vary by country. More so in countries not dealing with [the] burden of once being such enthusiastic African slave traders,” RT noted in retort to Bellingcat.
Russia had no history of African slavery and has treated fairly the people of African heritage who ended up living there voluntarily, from the great-grandfather of the famous 19th century poet Aleksandr Pushkin to Chernobyl liquidator Igor Khiryak, to use a more modern example.
