JEREMY MORTON: DOES VITAMIN C REALLY KILL SMOKERS?
First off I would like to thank you for providing so many insights, into the view of the world from other eyes. Quite often I believe that we, in the United States, only hear part of the story; thus, I have taken to perusing as many different publications, from other countries, as possible
DIANA FROM US: I AM SO EMBARASSED TO BE AMERICAN
I have to tell you, I'm so embarrassed to be American when I read some of the letters that are sent to you. And it breaks my heart to think that if I wanted to leave this country I would probably be killed elsewhere because I'm American
ED RIVERS TO TIMOTHY BANCROFT-HINCHEY: YOUR IDEAS AND VIEWS CONCERNING WORLD POLITICS AND AMERICA ARE EXTREMELY NAIVE
There is nothing wrong with my language skills. You are the one who misspelled temper in your quote below. Just because I exercised my option to express myself in a negative manner, using descriptive verse, does not mean that I have a problem with the English language.
IVAN SIMIC: CONCERNING THE ARTICLE “ NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY ORGANIZATION IN THE BALTIC?”
I read that naive and apologetic article NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY ORGANIZATION IN THE BALTIC? that fears to admit that Russia is slowly being surrounded to be taken over militarily or through intimidation (by threats real, or only imaginary, but convincing).
NEIL RICHARDS: THE EXCHANGE BETWEEN INNA NOVIKOVA AND ED RIVERS (PRAVDA.RU USES CENSORSHIP...) WAS VERY INTERESTING. THIS IS MY ADVICE TO ED
I wouldn’t waste too much energy complaining about Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey’s articles. He is not a real journalist. I have come to understand that the majority of his articles should be relegated to the tabloids that can be bought at any grocery store in America.
BORIS KHUDENKO: ALL INHABITANTS, CHRISTIANS, JEWS AS A RELIGIOUS GROUP, AND MUSLIMS, OF THE TERRITORY CALLED PALESTINE AND ISRAEL NEED (NOT JUST SHOULD) TO LIVE TOGETHER
Normal people would agree that all inhabitants, Christians, Jews as a religious group, and Muslims, of the territory alternatingly called Palestine and Israel need (not just should) to live together. However, the darlings of PRAVDA.Ru, the mostly Muslim pan-arabic extremists completely reject any rights of non pan-Muslims in this territory.
ANTHONY LEFCO: NO IZVESTIA IN PRAVDA AND NO PRAVDA IN IZVESTIA
No Izvestia in Pravda and no Pravda in Izvestia, that was the refrain during the Cold War. That period should be over but Ran HaCohen's tendentious coverage of Israel brings back those memories.
PAT DAWSON: I FIND MANY OF YOUR ARTICLES TO BE INFORMATIVE, THOUGH I'M OFTEN DISAPPOINTED BY YOUR PREDICTABLE VIEWS ON ISSUES
I am an American living in Colorado, and I enjoy reading PRAVDA.Ru almost every day to get a sense of the Russian people's view of the world and the important events in it. I find many of your articles to be informative, though I'm often disappointed by your predictable views on issues like the Balkans conflict, NATO participation in Eastern Europe, the Israeli/Palestinian mess, Iraq, and of course China.
NEIL RICHARDS: TIM M. NEEDS TO CRAWL OUT FROM UNDER THAT ROCK WHERE HE LIVES
I must respond to Tim M’s letter to the editor of Aug 29,
WE WERE ALWAYS TAUGHT YOU WERE THE ENEMY AND IN MY EYES YOU ALWAYS WILL BE. Complete nonsense.
REPLY FROM TIMOTHY BANCROFT-HINCHEY TO ED RIVERS
Concerning the article PRAVDA.RU USES "CENSORSHIP" IN POSTING CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN ENGLISH VERSION EDITOR AND ONE OF PRAVDA.Ru READERS
I opened the Letters page and see that I have been the subject of conversation between yourself and my Editor, Inna Novikova. It would appear that you disagree with one of my articles and that you do not have the vocabulary in your own language to express yourself with the due befitting dignity one would expect in such a situation.
BLAIR LANGMUIR: 21ST CENTURY WARSAW PACT?
Concerning: "NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY ORGANIZATION IN THE BALTIC?"
This article is correct to a point. It ignores the many other ways U$ bu$ine$$ supports and profits by miltary expansion.
EVE JOHNSON: THANK GOD FOR ENGLISH.PRAVDA
You are wonderful!
The following is NOT a criticism, but a loving observation --- that the translations are sometimes a bit "fractured" in their English but are always endearing and sweet and earnest and let me "hear" the Russian accent in the writing. Don't change a thing.
MATURE: PRAVDA, CHANGE YOUR NOT SUITABLE NAME - YOUR NEWSPAPER IS FOR SURE NOT "THE TRUTH"
You wrote : "On our part, we are ready to publish all your comments (and even your feelings provoked by our materials and our correspondents ..."
OK - you want some comments on your brainwashing, so called "news"-paper? As long as you are publishing articles with your very subjectiv comments - thus influcening your reader - I can not consider "pravda" an objective source of information.
PRAVDA.RU USES "CENSORSHIP" IN POSTING CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN ENGLISH VERSION EDITOR AND ONE OF PRAVDA.RU READERS
Correspondence between English version Editor and one of PRAVDA.Ru readers concerning "...AND CLOSE THE DOOR BEHIND YOU!!.The United States of America, its lap-dog Israel obediently following at its heels, walked out of the World Conference on Racism", using “censorship”
How can you have such a (….erased by editor, author meant word “correspondent”) writing for your paper
DENNIS GARWITZ: BUSH ELECTED ON THE WEAKEST OF MARGINS IN AMERICAN HISTORY
Concerning BUSH MILLS ON THE ROCKS
Many of us in the United States did not vote for Bush. He is cutting his own throat with the Democrats in Congress
NEIL RICHARDS: REGARDING ROMAN FOMIN'S REPORT ON THE PROTESTANT/CATHOLIC CLASH IN NORTHERN IRELAND
MASS RIOTS IN NORTHERN IRELAND. DEBATES ON WHERE 5-YEAR-OLD SCHOOLGIRLS SHOULD WALK TO SCHOOL GROW INTO FIGHT, the video of crying schoolgirls walking through a gauntlet of angry adults was widely shown on the national news here in the US.
FRED STARR: MR. PRESIDENT PUTIN IS A LEADER, MR. PRESIDENT BUSH IS A LEADER, WE NOW HAVE THE CHANCE, WITH THE TWO OF THEM, TO MAKE A SECURE WORLD
I have just finished reading a story in PRAVDA.Ru, datelined,2001.08.29 NUCLEAR WEAPON PREVENTED WORLD WAR III .
This is very true, but the only reason that it is, is that the USSR also produced the a-bomb.
EQUAL LAW FOR EQUAL BEHAVIOUR
MARIO FORMOSA: I NOW PREFER TO READ "PRAVDA" TO "THE TIMES"
May I congratulate you on the quality of your virtual newspaper. I became very interested in all things Russian in the past few years and enjoy reading Pravda from here in London.
ROBERT ZIMMER: PLEASE, DO NOT INSULT OUR INTELLIGENCE BY CLAIMING THAT REPORTS OF ETHNIC CLEANSING IN YOU ARE "PROPAGANDA"
I am terribly disappointed in your lack of journalistic objectivity regarding Slobodan Milosevic. Let us assume, for the sake of debate, that Western/U.S. pressures drove Milosevic to protect the interests of Serbia. Does this justify genocide?
DREW SEYBEL: THE STORIES PRAVDA.RU IS A NEW LOOK AT WHAT IS HAPPENING AROUND THE WORLD
Thank you for having a wonderful website for the world to see. I live in the United States and enjoy reading other countries views of America.
TIM M.: WE WERE ALWAYS TAUGHT YOU ARE THE ENEMY AND IN MY EYES YOU ALWAYS WILL BE
Dear Sir or Madam,
I recently came across your publication via a link on Yahoo in the United States. May I say, I've never seen such yellow journalism! I am an American and extremely proud of being a citizen of the best country in the world.
OUR READER WILLIAM GILGUIST: TO RUSSIA, WITH HOPE
As an American soldier inside a Warsaw Pact nation's borders, I was given a fairly regular diet of propaganda about the Soviet Union.
Whenever I would encounter Soviet soldiers, they seemed to be just like us - except for the language. There were times that it was obvious through their displayed attitudes towards us that these soldiers were fed the same type of propaganda about us.
NICOLE PINGLE: CONCERNING OF BUSH’S IQ INFERIOR TO AVERAGE MAN’S
In the article "Bush's IQ Inferior To Average Man's" the writer references a study done by researchers in Pennsylvania. This was an internet hoax
DR. JACK A. SHULMAN: DR. SOBOLEV HAD ACCESS TO A UFO
VALERIAN SOBOLEV ANNOUNCED THE SENSE OF HIS DISCOVERY. READERS ARE WELCOME FOR DISCUSSION
The above was a very interesting article. Some of my peers suggested that Dr. Sobolev had access to a UFO and was deploying reverse engineered Alien technology.
BILL GILQUIST: US GOVERNMENT IS INCAPABLE OF RELAYING TO THE RUSSIAN PUBLIC
I would like to post a message that I feel the US Government is incapable of relaying to the Russian public. Why? Probably just plain arrogance, but I'm sure that there is a good measure of stupidity there as well.
TODD CORMACK IS FURIOUS WITH PRAVDA.RU ARTICLE
I read this article BUSH’S IQ INFERIOR TO AVERAGE MAN’S. Normally I just laugh. This was worse than all the rest.
DREW CURTIS ABOUT BUSH’S IQ INFERIOR TO AVERAGE MAN’S
This article BUSH’S IQ INFERIOR TO AVERAGE MAN’S is an urban legend.
FEKADU W/YOHANNES: THERE IS NO FACILITY BUILD FOR DISABLED PERSONS
I would like to present to you the inconveniences I encountered being a disabled and orphan person. I was paralysed both legs due to polio since childhood. I was raised in an orphanage. I am now working for the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa here in Addis Ababa. I am almost 100 kg in weight and I am still using crunches.
HENRIK BERGQVIST: IRENA, SIMONE, WHERE ARE YOU?
I am writing to you because I need some help. In 1990/91 I met a Russian woman named Irena here in Copenhagen, Denmark. She was here because she applied for political asylum. We fell in love and
