I would just like to say that Russia is lucky to have such a decisive leader as President Putin who is helping in the Syrian crisis, whilst Britain - led by that gormless, spineless toad Cameron - does nothing but invite thousands of immigrants into our country. I wish to God we have someone like President Putin as our leader.

Is it true that the sock puppets at the Russian ministry for consumer protection have banned Ariel and Persil washing powders because they are toxic ? Imagine a country that uses its ministries like this to punish legitimate companies. Thoughly unreliable country. Maybe they misheard the glorious leader asking about money laundering his embezzled fortune.

Just want you to know that most right thinking Scots think of your country as the one that defeated the Nazi's and have no axe to grind with you. Stand strong against the US Euro globalist bullies!

Dear Ambassador, I would like to offer my sincerest apologies for the way Britain, and the west in general, are presenting a distorted view of reality when it comes to events unfolding in the Ukraine. It must be frustrating to hear the sabre-rattling tones of the US State Department - the expansion of the US/NATO-led military-industrial complex further eastwards and the accusations by western shills towards Russia based on social media rather than firmly established facts. Of course lazy journalism is also largely to blame for the many untruths being presented to the world as facts which has become so obvious that many people in Britain, and other countries, are beginning to question. No wonder then that RT News is becoming ever popular as people seek to understand and learn more about the Ukraine crisis from people who appear far better informed than those in the western mainstream.

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.
