https://southfront.org/russian-liberal-medias-foreign-sponsors/ The hysteria concerning the alleged Russian “interference” in the US presidential election appears to be a mirror projection of techniques that have been used against Russia, with little or no success, with the aim of interfering in its political processes. While the propaganda campaign aimed at Russia has sought to foster the impression that the country’s media is strictly controlled, in actuality the “liberal opposition” newspapers and radio stations
The West appears to have entered into a new era – the era of the political upsets, growing anger, and increased disillusionment with ruling elites. It is not a question of leftwing – rightwing politics. It is all about a failing status quo. CrossTalking with Stephen Haseler, Marcus Papadopoulos, and Joaquin Flores.

by Scott Humor This past September, in one of his regular interviews with the newspaper Parlamentní Listy, retired Czech Major General Hynek Blaško commented on the possibility of a conflict between Russia and NATO with a following anecdote: “I have seen a popular joke on the Internet about Obama and his generals in the Pentagon debating on the best timing to attack Russia. They couldn’t come to any agreement, so they decided to
Syrian War Report – February 22, 2017: Syrian Army Aims ISIS Stronghold Of Deir Hafer On February 21, the Syrian army’s Tiger Forces, supported by Russian warplanes, liberated the key town of Rasm Harmel al-Imam and the village of Tabaret Madi from ISIS terrorists in the province of Aleppo.

Syrian War Report – February 20, 2017: Turkey Further Pushes Its Plan For Raqqah Offensive Pro-Turkish militants and the Turkish army have still been facing difficulties in breaking ISIS defenses around al-Bab. Turkey-led forces have failed to seize Qabasin and Bzaah, and retreated from almost all areas seized inside al-Bab. Intense fighting is ongoing. Meanwhile, the Syrian army, supported by the Russian Aerospace Forces, continued its operation against
A few years ago, I was having coffee with my then-business partner. He happened to be in the middle of a process called “enrolling your child in a private school.” In my naiveté I thought that this process was a fairly straightforward one: you give them your application and a check, and they accept your kid. But apparently, there were more people with money that this particular school was willing to

When I started my master’s program in an American university, I also took work as a web developer, and programming was making me very hungry. My tuition paid for a meal plan and the use of a buffet-style dining hall, but as the only Russian there, I was the subject of extreme scrutiny by the student body of “food police,” resulting in my inability to take a second helping of
On February 9th, the Donetsk republic authorities announced that the regime in Kiev was behind the assassination of Mikhail Sergeyevich Tolstykh, nom de guerre Givi. They also claim that they know who were individuals, involved in this crime. Igor Mosiychuk, a Rada deputy representing the “Radical party,” an ultra-radical nationalist known for his alleged involvement in intimidation of the fellow members of the parliament, kidnapping and other criminal activities.
The German ambassador to Ukraine spoke to a Russia-based privately owned news source. He brought up the idea that in order to implement the Minsk Agreement “local elections in Donbas could take place with Russian troops on the ground.” Thanks to the Kulak for the link. In his interview, the German ambassador is talking about a “new map” which means changing the way the agreement is implemented. He says that
In a sick twist, now that the Trump-bashing Steinmeier has been promoted from foreign minister to head of state, his former position goes to Sigmar Gabriel. Who has insulted Trump even more gravely (as reported in my last sitrep). Gabriel is a pathetic loser. Under his leadership the SPD has become a shadow of its former self. (In 1990 the SPD had close to a million members, today not even
The liberal think tank Stratfor has stated what we already knew: “Kiev could have incited the violence to draw attention to the conflict and rally international support for continued sanctions on Moscow.“ And that’s where the Kiev regime finds no understanding among the European national businesses. On the supra-national level everything is business-as-usual: In January in Ukraine, senators McCain and Graham visited front line troops and spent the night with them
Providing correct and timely information and analysis is important to me as a journalist, but as a professor, I want to teach you a few simple logical skills, so you will be able to grasp the meaning of events through the thick fog of propaganda. I don’t ask you to believe me, because the skills of seeing through don’t require faith, but rather, understanding. Let’s talk about the temporary suspension of
This is what I call instant karma. Do you recall how Obama and the democrats consolidated executive power under the auspice of the president of the United States? How the liberal press loved it, and many republicans warned them against doing such things and the democrats ignored the warnings; they thought that their reign of terror will go on for at thousand years or at the least until WW III.
The bigger picture – Part 1 “The Russian Navy is a capable Navy, that’s why their ships are a part of our routine surveillance plans.” Admiral Clive Johnstone, Commander Allied Maritime Command, NATO Memo to useless Western MSM idiot-journalists, who suffer from “duality confusion” and write articles such as these examples and also write that the Russian pilots are a “bit shit.” Memo- your NATO maritime boss doesn’t agree with
Note by The Saker: as has been the case so many times in the past, I am posting an article with which I disagree, rather strongly, in fact, but which I find nevertheless worth posting precisely because it represents a point of view different from mine and because it asks some interesting questions. My own two cents about all this is that the Russians are seeking opportunities to appear to
