Dear Ambassador, i like most of the civilised world am shocked by the unfolding events of flight 17. Your leader Mr Putin could have been such a force for good in the world, but his lack of action in reigning in his thugs in Ukraine have shown us that he is no better than them. He cannot deny, or can his supporters who post wonderful things about him, the stark reality of what we are seeing on the television, of the lack of respect for the 298 people who have died under his command. his actions in this will be his legacy long after he has gone from power. The proud Russian peoples do not deserve his leadership, as their country is being tarred with his brush. He can still be a force for good, if he withdraws from Ukraine and uses his powers to try and redeem the savagery we are witnessing. History will forever show that these events are in his name only.

I was pleased to read Consul General Pritsepov's letter in today's Herald. My father fought in the Second World War and always made us aware of the crucial contribution that Russia made to the defeat of Nazi Germany and its allies. To coincide with the current wartime commemorations I have designed a tartan for the Russian people - 'the Spirit of Russia' tartan. It is about to be woven for the first time and can be viewed at www.internationaltartans.co.uk

Having just read Mr. Pritsepov's moving letter in today's Herald I would like to assure him that very many people in Scotland and the UK are fully aware of the sacrifice of the Russian people and their decisive role in the defeat of Nazi Germany. In spite of the utterances of some western politicians in recent years , whose actions and words would easily have found favour in the Third Reich, many of us see Russia as a great nation whose friendship we should nurture. Who knows, perhaps before long we in Scotland will be able as a nation to extend the hand of friendship rather than words of threat. John Jamieson.

Having lived in this country for more than twenty years, I’ve hardly heard anything positive about modern Russia in the mass media. And Russian President Vladimir Putin is only portrayed in the Western media as the virtual devil incarnate, yet he – and his government - can’t surely be all bad if people vote for him. Maybe, just maybe, people's lives have genuinely improved. I visit my friends and relatives in Russia every year and I can assure you that there are lots of good and positive developments affecting the lives of ordinary Russians, but they are never covered by the mainstream media here. Similarly with the current crisis in Ukraine, which could potentially lead to something even bigger and irreversibly terrible that will affect us all, the reporting in the Western media is – with a few exceptions – very one-sided, effectively legitimising the junta in Kiev and branding one half of the population terrorists. It seems like the victims of the massacre that took place in the Trade Union Building in Odessa, for example, were the wrong type of Ukrainian citizens to be deserving of Western compassion. Ukraine is a deeply divided country and the voice of those who seek federalisation should and needs to be heard as well. The British public need to know the whole and impartial truth about the situation in Ukraine. At the moment they’re getting a distorted picture. It’s time for the media to stop being a mouthpiece of the establishment and start reporting local and foreign affairs from an unbiased, independent journalistic position.

People , stop follow the propaganda! Stop calling Putin a Hitler. He is very powerful and clever plus educated person! People should be highly educated if they want to comment about situation in Ukraine.

JUST TO SAY THAT RUSSIA SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THE ACTIONS IN UKRAINE, CERTAINLY OUR COMPANY WILL NOT INVEST IN RUSSIA ANYMORE AND WE WILL SUPPORT UKRAINE BY ALL MEANS NOW. PUTIN IS A NEW HITLER. RUSSIAN NATION SHOULD BE ASHAMED FOR KILLING OTHER NATIONS! YOUR RUSSIAN TV IS STINKS OF LIES!! SHAME ON YOU ALL!!!

Just to comment that not all the people in Scotland are against the actions of the Russian Government in the Crimea or in the Ukraine. I do not support the actions of William Hague (UK) towards Russia which is towing the line of the American Administration. (I did not expect anything else from the British Government) What is the agenda of the Western Powers?

I am writing to invite you and any Russians in Edinburgh to a concert I shall give in the Reid Hall of Edinburgh University at 1310 on Tuesday 29th January as part of the season of Concerts at Lunchtime at Edinburgh University. With Jan Waterfield (piano), I shall sing a programme of Poulenc, Ibert and Mussorgsky. The Mussorgsky will be the 4 Songs and Dances of Death and I will sing them in Russian. This is perhaps the greatest song cycle of Russian music and I hope you will be able to come and bring as many compatriots as possible. I have had a long career as an opera singer, and have sung in such Russian pieces as Boris Godunov, the Nose, Shostakovich 14th Symphony and Les Noces. My website has full details of my career (and clips from my recordings including a Borodin song) and can be found at www.bannatynescott.co.uk . I hope we can perhaps build on this contact as I am perhaps the only bass in Scotland who can sing in Russian. I live at 26/1 Murrayfield Drive EH126EB and my phone is 337 6869. I hope you can come to the concert on 29th. Best wishes, Brian Bannatyne-Scott
