The Olympics as a tool of the new Cold War

The wise men, please step forward

Countering the NATO propaganda on Russia (I)

In December 2014 NATO released a factsheet on NATO-Russia relations covering more than 30 issues. The document was cooked according to the standard scheme elaborated by the US State Department – they take a Russian “false” assertion and dress it with a “correct” disclaimer. Taking this weapon in hand, our expert is throwing the alliance’s […]

Two sides to every chessboard

As never before since the dissolution of the USSR the very real, deep and elemental differences between the way Russia thinks and sees things, and the way the West looks at the same things and interprets them—are coming out in very vivid detail.

Can “The Unsinkable Aircraft Carrier” Ever Call Port in The Russian Far East?

When one thinks of Northeast Asia and its political actors, they typically do not think of Russia, despite the country occupying an enormous Pacific coastline and bordering China, North Korea, and Japan (maritime).

In March 1948 that effort resulted in a secret document entitled “Use of Refugees from the Soviet Union in […]
