No one exposing Russia's fairy tales and lies

The independent Russian newspaper Nowaya Gazeta, which has always reported critically on the situation in Ukraine, has been issued yet another warning by the Russian media watchdog. But the West is also to blame for the arduousness of the fight against Russian propaganda, writes the liberal daily Dagens Nyheter: "To expose the fairy tales and lies that are disseminated we need journalists who are prepared to dig for the truth. … While this may be punished with death in Russia, the problem in the West is the lack of funds. Few media companies can afford expensive foreign correspondents. And journalists grappling with the war in Ukraine are particularly at risk. … If we want to know what is happening on the other side of the Baltic Sea we have to find out for ourselves. Of course it is strange that the Russian majority is not protesting. But you have to remember that 'press freedom' is not much older than the Nowaya Gazeta itself."

No one is safe from IS terror

Turkey and all Europe should be on high alert after the Suruç bombing, stresses the liberal daily Dagens Nyheter: "No matter what the logic is behind Turkey's lax stance towards IS, Monday's events have shown that the Turkish leadership misjudged the situation. … 'This attack is aimed at Turkey,' Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu said on Tuesday. The country has now been forced to realise that it is no exception within the region. The IS won't leave Turkey in peace. But the same clearly goes for all Europe - particularly if you see the attack in connection with the Bosnian intelligence service's suspicion that a jihadist training camp is being set up in the north of the country. This is a nightmare the EU must take seriously."
