“From Istanbul to Moscow, cold snap wreaks havoc across Europe, reads the headline.
“RT (Russia Today), is considered to be a Kremlin propaganda medium and it would be involved in the so-called Russian hacking story,” says reader Argiris Diamantis.
“However, they bring the news of the bone chilling cold in Europe, and our so-called free press, the Dutch MSM, keeps quiet about it. They are downplaying the recent snowstorm in Istanbul rather than exaggerating this news item.
“On Turkish media I found up to 110 cm of snowfall in parts of Istanbul. BTW the Caspian Sea has nothing to do with Istanbul, it is located east of Turkey, between Russia and Iran.”
Here’s what RT News had to say about the “cold snap”:
“Bone-freezing cold, heavy snowstorms, and floods have been plaguing the European continent this week, causing power outages, traffic jams, cancelled flights.”
On Saturday, heavy snowfall paralyzed Istanbul, Turkey. Many drivers abandoned their cars and walked rather than waiting for streets to be cleaned. Around 6,000 passengers were stranded as hundreds of flights to and from Ataturk Airport were cancelled.
The Bosphorus Strait was closed to ships, cutting off the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea from the Mediterranean.
