On this tragedy, the media were silent
Yet the news channels are extremely selective. And in this case, it is not even so much about Russian. For some reason, one theme is so actively promoted, and a major tragedy is completely ignored, probably, only in the editorial offices.
While the tropical hurricane "Harvey" dominates the front pages of the world's leading publications, Texas is still not the only place on earth that is destroyed and devastated by floods. The international media somehow all together ignore the torrential rains that hit the countries of South Asia. While the disaster lasts almost a month.
The most powerful monsoon rains have hit Nepal, Bangladesh and India for several weeks now. International rescue organizations and first aid associations have called the disaster the worst flooding in the last decade.
Due to floods and landslides in three countries, 1200 people died, millions had to leave their homes. Torrential monsoon rains have destroyed tens of thousands of homes, schools and hospitals, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
In the flooded areas, problems are already beginning with the supply of food and water, waterborne diseases, and thousands of hectares of farms are simply washed away from the face of the earth. The restoration work is almost impossible due to the incessant rainstorms.
