Pain inflicting techniques

by Nikolai Starikov for Vzgiad(translated by the Russian Team) The West is so used to the one-sided game that they seem genuinely surprised that Russia has responded to the West’s sanctions against her. That’s ok, let them get used to it. Whoever will come to us with a sword by the sword will perish. That is only when we are talking about a battle sword and a “hot” war. If

The “friendly” Mr. Steinmeier

by Dagmar Henn There can be no doubt, western media are full of propaganda. The claims that are in the centre of this propaganda, are almost identical. They are: 1. The crash is the fault of the Militia. 2. The Militia obstructs the investigations   a. the Militia confines access to the site of the crash   b. the Militia does not confine enough access to the site.   c.

Meanwhile, back in Kiev, (and elsewhere in Ukraine) – Economics

by NoBC4U for No Bread And Circuses For You  original link: http://bread-circuses-today.blogspot.ca/2014/07/meanwhile-back-in-kiev-and-elsewhere-in.html  Reports from various sources along with “man on the street” observations. Sadly, in the last few weeks, there has been numerous stories about death and destruction in the east of Ukraine by the Ukrainian Army. Let’s face it, death and destruction are compelling narratives. It has often been said about mainstream media, “If it bleeds, it leads”. In

Polkovnik (Colonel) Strelkov

by Auslander Sketch by Christopher I’ve read a lot of reports this morning about, according to The West, the ‘catastrophic defeat of the terrorists and rebels with massive casualties’ and the ‘glorious victory of the Ukraine army in evicting the terrorists from their bastion of Slavyansk’ sometimes followed with ‘the incredible destruction carried out by the terrorists as they retreated through Slavyansk’ and in one article ‘the freeing of the

The German government is acting on it´s own accord as an accomplice, not a vassal of US strategy

Introduction: I am deeply honored and grateful to Dagmar Henn for allowing me to publish here an email she sent me recently. Let me immediately say that I do not agree with her main thesis (that the German government is not a vassal but an accomplice) but my personal views on this topic are irrelevant. What matters is that she makes a very interesting case and that if she is

Forgive us for not dying in Slavyansk

by Igor Druze (Igor Strelkov’s Advisor) translated from Russian by Gleb Bazov The Militia was forced to leave Slavyansk.

On traitors, rebels, terrorist and loyalist

by Petri Krohn By what name to call the antifascist resistance in the Ukraine? Kyiv calls them terrorists some call them separatists or rebels. I call them loyalists. Why? They are loyal to the Motherland, to the Rus’ nation, to the Orthodox church, to Mother Russia, to their fathers and grandfathers who defended the nation. They are loyal to the soldiers of the Red Army, to the partisans, to the

What the Kremlin’s inaction over the Ukraine means for Russia’s geopolitics, international relations, and the Eurasian Union

by Mark SlebodaWhat the Kremlin’s inaction over the Ukraine means for Russia’s geopolitics, international relations, and the Eurasian Union: All moral and national security issues aside for a moment, the precedent that Russia’s inaction is setting in the Ukraine in terms of both geopolitics and foreign policy alone is crippling.

Slavyansk is out of sight now …

by Dmitry Steshin (Komsomolskaya Pravda)Translated from Russian by Gleb Bazov I understand and share in the bitterness and resentment of those who found out this morning that the Militia has left Slavyansk.
