Reformatting Ukraine is on the agenda

Latest horrible ceasefire violations in Donbass by the Kiev’s regime are likely intended to demonstrate the “inefficiency” of the OSCE mission to its Western patrons and are evidence of Ukraine’s attempts to circumvent the jurisdiction of the Minsk truce co-brokered by Russia, Germany, and France. Indeed, Minsk-2 is very inconvenient for Poroshenko, because it documents […]

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”.

Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz was right when he admitted that he was skeptical of large-scale economic sanctions, and that “targeted action against specific people who are responsible for what is happening in the […]

Is Poland Rushing To Save Poroshenko With More Right-Wing Militants?

Poland has been the US’ primary Lead From Behind partner ever since the beginning of the Ukrainian Crisis, having trained some of the rioters prior to EuroMaidan and supplied mercenaries to the fratricidal battlefield shortly thereafter.

Washington plays Russian roulette

These are bleak times. I’ve been in serious conversation with some deep sources and interlocutors – those who know but don’t need to show off, privileging discretion. They are all deeply worried. This is what one of them, a New York strategic planner, sent me: The propaganda attack against Putin equating him with Hitler is […]

As the Cookie Crumbles, Ukraine’s Civil Divisions Move West

The Ukrainian Civil War did not end with the 5 September Minsk Protocol, despite many in the mainstream media alleging that this is so. Besides the fact that the ‘ceasefire’ was a misnomer and never implemented in practice, the war has now evolved past an East-West Ukrainian struggle and into an intra-Western one, albeit in […]

Just How Civilized Is the Western Civilization?

Those who have witnessed and especially those who in one degree or another helped bring about the momentous changes in USSR in the late 1980s and Russia in the early 1990s, remember only too well the overwhelming euphoria of those times. The dark years of totalitarian communism were receding into the past, and the peoples […]
