A pure piece of garbage[edit]

This article needs to be updated, the Turkish forces are enormous in this article, which is absurd, much of the information is incorrect and it seems like the page has russian benefit.

Scorched Earth and such[edit]

The article stated: The Russian army plundered the landscape and engaged in scorched-earth tactics, which lead the an English traveller Sir Adolphus Slade to remark:' 'In some mud cabins, hard by Yeni Bazar, an advanced post of Cossacks was lodged, in great distress for want of necessaries, which they were obliged to draw from Varna, two days distance. All Bulgaria they informed me, was in the same state, not a house standing, thus confirming what a Russian officer had before told me "the Turks did some damage, but we levelled all" The reason of their wanton destruction is difficult to understand, especially among people whom they were pleased to call co-religionists, allies,&c., but whom they treated worse than serfs. Pravodi, for example, a Christian place, they levelled to the ground, although it was not attacked. The adage, " where the Spahis' hoofs tread, the grass will not grow," may be applied with more reason to the Cossacks."[1]

By that time, Russia and Britain were political rivals. So the quote is hardly the testimony of a disinterested, unbiased witness. A claim as ridiculuous as that not a single house was standing in Bulgaria anymore is propaganda, even when it is delivered as hearsay. -- Zz (talk) 16:12, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
