Episode 17. Britain – Adolf Hitler’s star-crossed love (III)

Part I, part II Never during this time did Great Britain agree to peace negotiations. She steadily continued her shelling of German cities. She showed her resolve to fight until the end. The United Kingdom could be fought, and even defeated, but after examining his options, Adolf Hitler asked himself two questions. What price would […]

Episode 16. Who signed death sentence for France in 1940? (II)

Part I When analyzing the causes of the improbably rapid downfall of France in 1940, it would be amiss not to mention the wonderful plan developed by German General Erich von Manstein. But the Brits made an equally important contribution to France’s defeat. The English gave no thought to rescuing France and, unexpectedly for the […]

Episode 16. Who signed death sentence for France in 1940? (I)

This is something you ought to know: each time we must choose between Europe and the open sea, we shall always choose the open sea.

WWII lend-lease: was the US aid that helpful? (II)

Part I Nonlethal lend-lease aid Besides weapons, other supplies were also provided under lend-lease. And those figures are absolutely indisputable indeed. Specifically, the USSR received 2,586,000 tons of aviation fuel, an amount equal to 37% of what was produced in the Soviet Union during the war, plus almost 410,000 automobiles, making up 45% of the […]

Stories from Oles Buzina: SS Galicia Division against Ukraine

Foreword to the Translation With the onset of the Ukrainian crisis, I realized that I often looked forward to the work of certain journalists, who were both eloquent and informative. Oles Buzina was one of them. In addition to reading his columns, I, like millions of other Russians, watched his frequent appearances on political talk shows. I […]

Vatican clergy and Ukrainian nationalism (II)

Part I The ‘Good’ That Comes From A Golodomor “Genocide” The ‘glue’ that holds the US’ plans together is the ability to rally Ukrainians against Russia, and this is where the Golodomor [Holodomor in Ukrainian spelling – OR] “genocide” myth is absolutely pivotal. It provides the underpinning of popular support and ‘legitimacy’ for rabid Ukrainian […]

Vatican clergy and Ukrainian nationalism (I)

The Catholic pontiff does more than just spread the Vatican’s word across the world, as he also spreads the ‘gospel’ of Ukrainian nationalism and victimhood, too. Francis made headlines when he said the mass killing of ethnic Armenians in the last days of the Ottoman Empire was “the first genocide of the 20th century”. Largely […]
