I'm still waiting to see if Saddam has those weapons of mass destruction
it is clear as to what she says and Zig Heil is not it.
You are denying the obvious, again ...
There is a clear gesture and words and swastika on the screen of PC and you are still in denial ...
The salute gesture is widely believed to be based on an ancient Roman custom. However, no surviving Roman work of art depicts it, nor does any extant Roman text describe it. Jacques-Louis David's painting Oath of the Horatii (1784) seems to be the starting point for the gesture that became known as the Roman salute. The gesture and its identification with ancient Rome was advanced in other French neoclassic art. This was further elaborated upon in popular culture during the late 19th and early 20th centuries in plays and films that portrayed the salute as an ancient Roman custom. This included the silent film Cabiria (1914), whose screenplay was written by the Italian ultra-nationalist Gabriele d'Annunzio, arguably the forerunner of Benito Mussolini. In 1919, when he led the occupation of Fiume, d'Annunzio adopted the style of salute depicted in the film as a neo-Imperialist ritual; and it was quickly adopted by the Italian Fascist Party.
You do understand that saying Sieg Heil doesn't make you a Nazi...saying Heil Hitler on the other hand is a different story.

Politkovskaya was found dead in the lift, in her block of flats in central Moscow on 7 October 2006, the birthday of Vladimir Putin. She had been shot twice in the chest, once in the shoulder, and once in the head at point-blank range.
Unlike the truths that Russian media tells their citizens, and they think the world actually believes it.
You know, Russian media can be funny too. Imagine you've learned Russian language and coming to the talk show on this horrible Russian state controlled TV. You are trying to sell your vision. There is such a man in Russia, journalist Michael Bom
You are clutching at straws.
Also, from this wikipedia article, it says

And just because you don't see it in paintings means it didn't happen. So I guess that means unless we take pictures or paint, or even write about it it didn't happen...history is in for a big shock if that is true.
What exactly ? Russian journalist was deported , how this puts Russia in a bad light ?
"The current Ukrainian authorities will never understand that you cannot conceal the truth by intimidating and killing reporters," committee spokesman Vladimir Markin said in a statement.
Well, may be for you it will be a big shock, but this is a usual way how we know or guess history ( by writings, paintings, archaeological findings etc) The rest usually stays in ATS forums lol
And CNN, MSNBS etc are always infallible ? By this logic we can expel everyone
What about current case, what are exactly your objections ?
Answer also, what this incident tells us about Ukraine "freedom of press" ?
Contrary to popular Russia belief, the US MSM are not that interested in Putin or Russia. Our daily news feeds aren't plastered with anti Russian propaganda and rhetoric. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for Russia with their hardcore anti US propaganda being fed to them day and night by all of their news outlets.
Again I will say this slow for you to understand...Ukraine has the right to do whatever they feel is necessary to what they feel is wrongfully reporting about Ukraine, and do what they want to thoise they deem necessary to expell from their country.
WHat are you talking about my objections?
