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 […]

Why Ukraine should not expect financial help from the EU

Why Ukraine should not expect financial help from the EU

Parliamentary elections in Ukraine on 26th October indicated that the country is on a Western path. But the euphoria many felt in Kiev after the end of Euromaidan protests may be replaced by hard realisation that not much has changed in Ukraine. The economy is in a dire place and is unlikely to improve any […]

Brisbane – A show of Western weakness

Brisbane – A show of Western weakness

If it wasn’t an offence to children, one would aptly characterize it as childish behavior. Western leaders ignored a brilliant opportunity to meet face-to-face with Vladimir Putin and […]

India’s foreign policy: the Delhi-Beijing axis to be built

Almost half a year ago Narendra Modi was sworn in as the 16th Prime Minister of India, the largest democracy in the world. The general expectation was that Modi’s coming to power would mean a more independent foreign policy as he was known for his tough stance and clear vision of India’s role as a […]

Rethinking the ‘New Cold War’: The Europeans Are Guilty and the Ivory Tower Doesn’t Matter

Rethinking the ‘New Cold War’: The Europeans Are Guilty and the Ivory Tower Doesn’t Matter

Washington and Brussels share equal responsibility for the deterioration of ties with Russia, despite what one may think. It’s been trendy to lay the vast majority of blame on the US’ doorstep and present the Europeans as victims of American neo-imperialism (which is not without reason), but doing so deflects culpability from the European side […]

China’s silky road to glory

China’s silky road to glory

If there were any remaining doubts about the unlimited stupidity Western corporate media is capable of dishing out, the highlight of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Beijing has been defined as Russian President Vladimir Putin supposedly “hitting” on Chinese President Xi Jinping’s wife – and the subsequent Chinese censoring of the moment when […]

Five Things that Drive the West Mad about Russia

By Peter LAVELLE (USA)

Five Things that Drive the West Mad about Russia

Russia bashing and the demonization of Vladimir Putin are the West’s new political media fads of our time. The tone of the commentary is getting increasingly strident and any boundaries of what’s permissible disappear. Hating and getting things wrong related to Russia and Russians is a one-way bet; there is no downside when a journalist or […]

Is Tyagnibok thwarting US-EU agenda for Ukraine?

By Alexander DONETSKY (Russia)

Is Tyagnibok thwarting US-EU agenda for Ukraine?

The Ukrainian Svoboda political party, whose leader Oleg Tyagnybok is known for his implacable contempt for the people like «Moskals» (derogatory for Russians), «Yids» (a Jewish slang ethnonym of Yiddish origin) and «Lyakhy» (the old Ukrainian exonym for the Poles), failed to reach the threshold level needed to get into the parliament. These are two […]
