This pamphlet brings together articles challenging Cold War myths, written by the Russian journalist and political analyst, Ekaterina Blinova, in 2015 largely for the website sputniknews.com. Sputnik is a news service of the Russian government that began in November 2014. It offers high-quality news and analysis available in English as well as other languages. (One article, on the Katyn Massacre, was published by Russia-Insider, an independent online source since September 2014 dedicated to media criticism). In these pieces, Blinova draws on the work and views of scholars in the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, Russia and Poland to question the interpretation of certain events in the history of the Soviet Union and Europe promoted by western writers and politicians during the Cold War to feed animosity toward the Soviet Union.
