The UN as a Propaganda Nest for the NATO Information Vulture

Portions of the UN’s forthcoming human rights report on Crimea, to be released Tuesday, have been leaked to Foreign Policy magazine, and its findings are far from objective. Indicating yet another instance of institutional bias against the Russian Federation and its interests, Ivan Simonovic, the UN’s Assistant Secretary General for Human Rights, has filled the […]

Rossiyskiy Patriotism: The Russian Zeitgeist (II)

Part I Rossiyskiy Patriotism as an Organic Russian Ideology: Rossiyskiy Patriotism is not just a belief, but a guiding mindset. It is important to underline that despite its far-reaching popularity, it is not an official state ideology, as such things are banned under the Russian Constitution. Nevertheless, this does not prohibit ideology in and of […]

Press Kit on Human Rights in Ukraine

By ORIENTAL REVIEW

Press Kit on Human Rights in Ukraine

The flywheel of political repressions in Ukraine is gaining momentum these days. In sharp contrast with the liberal approach by president Yanukovych to the “Euromaidan” rout, the interim Kievan administration did not hesitate much about cracking down the public uprising against the “neo-Nazi regime” on the rise in the East and South of Ukraine. Today […]

Many who have suffered at the hands of sectarian rebels in Syria have wondered at the behaviour of U.N. and certain western human rights organisations in their coverage of events. The vast […]

Kiev snipers, the regime and Yanukovych

By Alexander MERCOURIS (UK)

Kiev snipers, the regime and Yanukovych

The regime in Kiev says the snipers on 20th February 2014 belonged to the security forces. No surprise there. It also insinuates that the Russians were involved – a predictable but nonetheless fantastic allegation that will only serve to undermine its credibility on this issue. The one interesting thing is that the regime seems to […]

Why America Needs a Face-Saving Retreat Plan for Ukraine

By Andrew KORYBKO (USA)

Why America Needs a Face-Saving Retreat Plan for Ukraine

The American foreign policy blunders in Ukraine have been colossal, and as it currently stands, it looks as like they have completely backfired. Ukraine rejected the EU Association Agreement in November, only to have a covert Western-led coup usurp power. At that time, American policy seemed to have prevailed, but the flimsy foundation it was […]

Future of Transnistria in context of Ukrainian crisis

By Ari RUSILA (Finland)

Future of Transnistria in context of Ukrainian crisis

Transnistrian claim for independence is being met with a certain degree of sympathy and understanding by some of the western experts. As an example, a Finnish political analyst and blogger Ari Rusila can be named; he usually presents the Transnistrian de facto statehood in quite a positive light, admitting, in particular, that “Transnistria called my attention […]
