Mikhail Delyagin (a prominent Russian author, politician and economist): When we take offence at the Japanese about their inadequacy on the Kuril islands, our offence is directed at the wrong target. We must remember about the Americans. They suppress everything they don't like in Japan without any sentiments. This is hegemony and domination and it brings it's fruits.

Mikhail Delyagin (a prominent Russian author, politician and economist): When we take offence at the Japanese about their inadequacy on the Kuril islands, our offence is directed at the wrong target. We must remember about the Americans. They suppress everything they don't like in Japan without any sentiments. This is hegemony and domination and it brings it's fruits.

If you go to the museum of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki you will not find a mention of who dropped the atomic bomb. It's not there. 

Host: It fell by itself...

Delyagin: A bomb fell by itself, a bomb was dropped, but by whom - sorry, you are not supposed to know. 

Morevover, there is sociological research, which shows that over 60% of Japanese youth under 26 believe that the atomic bomb was dropped on Japan by the USSR.

Host: For some reason I am not surprised...

Delyagin: They are convinced about it. This is a real achievement of American propaganda, of American domination.

Now I have a printout from Wikipedia in front of me. A printout in Russian, but it presents an American view. Even though it is free and it gets edited multiple times. 

It reports that the Japanese made the decision to capitulate only after the USSR brought in the troops and started a war and after the report about the second bomb in Nagasaki. Only after that the Japanese capitulated.
