Pavel Kassin has been working for the weekly since 1990 and has never before had any problems getting his photographs published.
Last week, he and his German colleague Uwe Klussman, employed by Spiegel’s Moscow bureau, were sent to South Ossetia to report on the aftermath of the war.
On his return, Pavel sent 29 pictures to the magazine’s Hamburg HQ - but was shocked to find that none of them appeared in the latest issue released on Monday.
Kassin was so angry he gave an interview to the Russian daily Izvestia.
“Could it be that the most liberal, democratic and independent magazine has gone down the road of ideological one-sided propaganda?” he said. “In my view this is one of the rare cases when Spiegel has taken a pro-American stance.”
Blogini lukijana osaat varmaan nähdä että suomalaisetkin poliitikot ovat vajonneet samalle tasolle jo aiemmin. Vai onko edes yksi suomalainen poliitikko julkisesti tuominnut Georgian?
Ovatko pelkureita tietämättömiä vai sensuroiko joku tätä puolta. Ehkä Bilderbergkokouksessa hiljan istunut Yle-uutisten Atte Jääskeläinen - tai miksei Keskiviikkokerhon päällysmiehet tai Naton politrukit ?
