Russian civilization at stake in Novorossia

After the army of Novorossia launched a major offensive and began rapidly expanding the area under its control, it became clear to even the most skeptical observers that it was only a matter of time until the militia would inflict a decisive military victory over Kiev. But after Novorossia’s military victory in Ukraine, we will […]

Did Raul Just Reverse The Entire Cuban Revolution?

By Andrew KORYBKO (USA)

Did Raul Just Reverse The Entire Cuban Revolution?

Raul Castro may have potentially made a fatal mistake that risks destroying everything the Cuban Revolution built over the past half century. By entering into a deal with the US, he’s letting the wily Color Revolution fox into the hen house, and he’s also betraying his multipolar Russian ally at the same time. Havana and Washington […]

Cold Feet in the Caliphate

By Thomas Hornall (UK)

Cold Feet in the Caliphate

Although they revile democracy, thousands of European Muslims have, in Lenin’s line, ‘voted with their feet’ and left free societies to join the most reactionary terror group in the world: the Islamic State (ISIS). Over 3000 have left their families, relative material comfort and wealth, and in many cases university places, to go to the desert and […]

The Devil’s in the Details: Inside The Ukrainian Freedom Support Act

The latest anti-Russian bill to come out of Washington does a lot more than simply arm Ukraine, although that’s destabilizing enough as it is. Contained within the Act are powerful provisions that expand NATO’s influence in Russia’s backyard and continue the War on Syria. The Ukrainian Freedom Support Act (UFSA) is essentially the actionable successor […]

The US Congress: only Ten Little Indians left?

By Edward LOZANSKY (USA)

The US Congress: only Ten Little Indians left?

While politicians, political analysts, and the media hold lengthy debates about the potential onset of a new Cold War, the US Congress is already preparing the public for the possibility of a hot one. That country has been no stranger to anti-Russian rhetoric these past few years, but that previously focused mainly on human-rights abuses […]

In order to understand what has happened it is first necessary to go back to the way Russian-European relations were developing in the 1990s. Briefly, at that period, the assumption was that […]

Putin has chosen the Middle East over Europe

By ORIENTAL REVIEW

Putin has chosen the Middle East over Europe

South Stream has turned into “Turk Stream.” Moscow has decided not to sidestep Ukraine and supply gas to the whining American satellites from Southern Europe, but will instead turn its attentions to its project in Turkey. It’s no terrible fate to get the chance to provide fuel to a rapidly growing economy with a GDP […]
