Ukrainian Myths and Ukrainian Lies

by GH Elisason Why “the Ukrainians” Lie- Prof. A. Moytl Says the West Shouldn’t Freak Out! In an article published  at the New Atlanticist, Political Science Professor Alexander Moytl  of Rutgers University wrote the strongest justification a Ukrainian Nationalist scholar can mount in defense of the Ukraine”s love affair with the nationalism of Stepan Bandera. Bandera, a mass murderer, torturer, and assassinated former leader of Ukraine’s ultra-nationalist emigre political movement is the Ukrainian equivalent to

Geopolitical War Against Venezuela (part 2)

by Andrew Korybko PART II: The US’ Geopolitical War Against Venezuela (Please read Part I before this article) The Military-Political Game In Guyana The US is exploiting its latest proxy client, Guyana, in order to open up a second ground front in the containment of Venezuela. Franco Vielma, in a translated article for The Saker, brilliantly explains how this came to be. To summarize his detailed research (which the reader

The problem of Greece is not only a tragedy. It is a lie.

by John Pilger original article: An historic betrayal has consumed Greece. Having set aside the mandate of the Greek electorate, the Syriza government has willfully ignored last week’s landslide “No” vote and secretly agreed a raft of repressive, impoverishing measures in return for a “bailout” that means sinister foreign control and a warning to the world. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has pushed through parliament a proposal to cut at

Geopolitical War Against Venezuela (part 1)

by Andrew Korybko PART I: The US’ Geopolitical War Against Venezuela Ever since the presidency of the late Hugo Chavez, Venezuela has been the brightest multipolar beacon in the Western Hemisphere. Although Brazil is much larger and wealthier, some Latin American states have expressed fear about its future intentions, believing that ‘multipolarity’ is simply a slogan to justify Brasilia’s soft expansion into regional markets and resource reserves and replace Washington’s

BRICS and SCO – to replace PACE and OSCE

by Vasilii Ivanenko translated by “K” In the Capital of Bashkiria one of the key events in global politics of 2015 is taking shape Historic summits of two organisations – BRICS and SCO – which are providing the framework of the emerging “Eurasian” world order opened at the same time in Ufa. Moreover it is the first time they take place in the same location. In both structures Russia-China is

When fear is not enough

by Kakaouskia Greetings to the Saker community and readers. In his book 1984, George Orwell wrote the following on how to rule over people: He paused, and for a moment assumed again his air of a schoolmaster questioning a promising pupil: ‘How does one man assert his power over another, Winston?’ Winston thought. ‘By making him suffer,’ he said. ‘Exactly. By making him suffer. Obedience is not enough. Unless he

Response to a Bosnian Muslim

by Generation 1990 This writing is dedicated as a reply from someone from “opposite camp” to Ahmed and his article named as a “Response from a Bosnian Muslim” which can be found here: . Although I believe that Ahmed’s intention was giving point of view from someone in Bosnian Muslim perspective he failed to shed light to important facts. I was born in Belgrade in 1990, to be precise

Russia vs. ECHR: The Rise and Fall of the European Courts

by Scott One of the lesser known methods of color revolutionaries and snatchers of sovereign countries is to file multiple baseless frivolous lawsuits simultaneously to clog judicial systems and to obstruct and impede the work of courts and law enforcement. One of the recent most successful attacks took place in December 2014 in Ukraine, when a Soros funded EuroMaidanSOS coordinated with over 400 lawyers to flood the Ukrainian criminal and

The Geography Of Color Revolutionary Threats To The BRICS Countries

by Andrew Korybko One of the hottest topics of strategic research here in Russia has been the study of how the US uses Color Revolutions as a new form of influence and power projection. Because this destabilizing template can be applied all over the world, and not just against Russian interests, I wanted to share some of my latest findings with you all, in the hopes that you and your

The Moscow-Beijing Express: Russian “Oligarchs” versus Chinese Billionaires

By: Jeff J. Brown Cross linked with 44 Days and Sound Cloud China’s billionaires and Russia’s oligarchs have been in the media lately, due to a variety of business transactions, between these two allies and around the world, not to mention all the absurd sanctions the West has been piling on Russia over the last year and half. Always suspicious of the mainstream media behind the Great Western

A 4th of July open letter to President Putin by a citizen of the United States

Dear President Putin and  Russian citizens, I am an American and I write this as July 4th approaches. Many people here already have their flags up, many more will be putting them up in preparation of the big celebratory day to come. They will wave them, place them on their vehicles, display them on their homes and wear them on their bodies. And what will it mean to them? An

The West’s Brawndo Journalism

by Captain Fifteen I’m appalled at just how crude, self-righteous, and horribly one-sided our mainstream reporting is. What baffles me even more is that the majority of the people I’ve spoken to on the Western side of the Iron Curtain don’t notice it and shudder when I mention the word “propaganda” when referring to it. It seems to be such a Pavlovian response that every time I see the reaction,

Chinese-Russia Media Cooperation

by Larchmonter445 China, Russia step up media cooperation with 9 deals inked I noticed this new development. It follows our Double Helix metaphor from the deepening of the China-Russia strategic integration. This time it is based in the use of media globally. As you know RT is spreading into other languages and bases of operation. However, China’s CCTV network is mature and has spanned the globe for over a decade

Whose Bosnia is it anyways?

by Putnik The 20th anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre has brought turmoil to the political stage in Bosnia and beyond. At the behest of certain interest groups a resolution with be forthcoming in the United Nations Security Council commemorating the tragic events in Bosnia and condemning the “genocide” that occurred. Much ink has been spilled in regards to the causes and responsibility, who killed who, who ethnically cleansed who, who

Eastring vs. Balkan Stream: The Battle For Greece

by Andrew Korybko Russia wasn’t bluffing when it said that Turkish Stream would be the only route for Ukrainian-diverted gas shipments after 2019 , and after dillydallying in disbelief for over six critical months, the EU has only now come to its senses and is desperately trying to market a geopolitical alternative. Understanding that its need for gas must absolutely continue to be met by Russia for the foreseeable decades

“Cuckoo”: Russian national idea in a song?

by Tatzhit Mihailovich Video: Donbass Self-Defense: “My open hand now turned into a fist…” 18+ (please press the ‘cc’ button to see the English language captions) I subtitled a video about Ukrainian civil war set to the famous song “Cuckoo” by 90’s band Kino, I think it explains a lot of “Russian identity” fairly well. The song can actually be interpreted in many ways, but I’ve always thought it referred

What lies behind the transnationalization and occupation of the Esequibo

by Franco Vielma source: translated by Mateo The dispute between Venezuela and Guyana regarding the Esequibo has taken a significant turn with the beginning of transnationalization of contested land and territorial waters. What follows is an outline of the most profound issues involved. In 2013 Venezuelan authorities detained the ship Teknik Perdana with five U.S. citizens on board. The ship, operated by the U.S. company Anadarko Petroleum Corp., was

Solving the Ukrainian Crisis

by Oleg Maslov A magnificent project to unite the Eurasian continent in a web of pipelines, high speed rail, fiber optic cables, highways, and trade agreements from Lisbon to Singapore is already under construction and, should this project succeed, it will change the lives of everyone living in between and have profound implications on global geopolitics. Mostly initiated and driven forward by the economic might of China, the New Silk

by Evgenii Krutikov source: Translated by Seva The arrest of two mass murderers can blow up Europe Within a few days two men were arrested: Naser Orić and Ramush Haradinaj, two well-known figures of the Balkan wars, two mass murderers, whose names are as known to Serbs as the names of Basaev and Chikatilo are to Russians.

I saw death in Odessa

by Claude Roddier The events of May 2, 2014 in Odessa should not be forgotten. Some people from Odessa and Lugansk are currently in Paris, taking part in demonstrations. One of them is Irina Leskova, whom I met in Nice in January 2015 when she came with a delegation of Odessites to present an exhibition and talk to us in person of the drama. It was she who organised the
