So who is in Russia’s crosshairs in Syria?

The media frenzy in the countries of the anti-Assad coalition over the Russian air strikes on Al-Qaeda-linked guerrillas in Syria has made one very significant fact quite clear. Along with the nervous reaction of the US, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and some other countries it is irrefutable proof that the interests of seemingly opposing forces – […]

The Crimea – happy campers… or “kingdom of terror” prisoners?

Observations from an average American’s “flash inspection” of the Crimea Recent Western-conducted public opinion polls and observations from a French fact-finding delegation clearly contradict official US representations of the Crimea as a “kingdom of terror”.  I am no mere casual observer – I speak Russian fluently, and with over 3 decades of involvement, have a […]

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 […]

Beyond geography, the US, a historical “newcomer”, has often underappreciated the importance of history and related cultural differences. Russians […]

Junk metal show in Kiev and Poroshenko’s mental defeat

This week a metal junkyard is exhibited in the centre of Kiev. Thus the incumbent Ukrainian administration seeks to prove “the facts of the Russian aggression in Ukraine”. But in reality they only managed to prove their own ignorance and lack of any military expertise. As a result this show of the modern illusionary art […]
