NATO claims Russia funding eco-groups’ anti-fracking campaigns – Media Party silent

Anders-Fogh rasmussen

An absolute bombshell of a statement from NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen:

Russia is secretly working with environmental groups campaigning against fracking in an attempt to maintain Europe’s dependence on energy imports from Moscow, the secretary-general of Nato has said.

Speaking at the Chatham House foreign affairs think-tank in London, Anders Fogh Rasmussen said Russia was mounting a sophisticated disinformation campaign aimed at undermining attempts to exploit alternative energy sources such as shale gas.

He said: “I have met allies who can report that Russia, as part of their sophisticated information and disinformation operations, engaged actively with so-called non-governmental organisations – environmental organisations working against shale gas – to maintain European dependence on imported Russian gas. That is my interpretation.” (see here)

Yet not a word so far from the Canadian media (see here).

Coincidentally(?) CP’s Mike Blanchfield wrote a huge story today titled “Russian envoy blasts Harper as posting ends” (see here).

I’ve asked Blanchfield if this exclusive interview with Russia’s ambassador happened prior to NATO’s claim and if so, when will he be doing a follow-up.

I’ll update if he gets back to me.

    Frankly I no longer have any confidence in NATO, so it may be true and may not be true. That said I think it is very likely, since we face deep-pocketed Americans doing their best to kill our national resources and therefore our economy. We, and other countries, need to put a stop to all foreign funding and meddling in our national affairs wherever the source.

    Why doesn’t that surprise me in the slightest. Now let’s find out if, and how much, Middle Eastern oil money is being laundered through North American environmentalist organizations to undermine our oil sands! Any bets?

    The fact that Media Party ignores this threat to our independence is not surprising as the Media Party and foreign interests are on the same team with the same objective, destroy Canada.

    As long as their pasty gruel can be dished up as anti-conservative, the Media in this Country will keep dishing it out.
    They don’t care if it destroys our economy, or our country
