Guy Faulconbridge, Shadi Bushra and Jack Stubbs (authors of this hysterical anti-Russian article) please tell me, why, when you mentioned “186,382 moved abroad in 2013 and 122,751 in 2012, compared with 36,774 in 2011 and 33,578 in 2010”, apparently taken from Russian State Statistic Service, you didn’t mention that 482,241 moved in 2013 from abroad into Russia, compared with 417,681 in 2012 etc.? Also, why didn’t you point out that 147,853 (out of 186,382) immigrated into former USSR countries, which has nothing to do with “Ukraine gamble”, and only 38,529 moved into other countries? When at the same time, in 2013, 59,503 moved from these other countries into Russia.
Is it your so-called “journalistic objectivity”?
