Our intelligence obtained irrefutable evidence about the Armed Forces of Ukraine AFU preparation to attack us at the direction of Mariupol.

Another View of the EU (European Union)

by Jimmie Moglia for The Saker Blog The MacDonaldization of words forces many to lay that reason asleep which disturbs their gayety. Among recent new entries is ‘Brexit’, a word suitable to a speaking-club made of millions, where most half-hear what, if they heard the whole, they would but half-understand. Furthermore, some words in time are debased by repetition, and can no longer be heard without an involuntary sense of

U.S. Officially Accuses Assad, Russia Of Staging Chemical Attack In Aleppo

Syrian War Report – Dec. 10, 2018: U.S. Officially Accuses Assad, Russia Of Staging Chemical Attack In Aleppo On December 7, the US State Department finally released an official statement on the November 24 chemical attack, which hit the government-controlled city of Aleppo injuring over 100 people. However, instead of condemning terrorist groups, which used chemical weapons, the State Department accused the Assad government and the Russians of gassing Aleppo

We Must Remind the West That Russia Defeated ISIS, by Ruslan Ostashko

Translated and captioned by Leo. Make sure to press CC for English captions.       A year ago, on December 6, 2017, the defeat of the terrorist group banned in Russia, Islamic State as an organized military force was completed. And this must be tirelessly reminded to our Western so-called “partners.” In the “post-truth epoch” that has come, not only physical events, but also the constant presence of information

France’s Yellow Vests: It’s just 1 protest…which has lasted 8 years

by Ramin Mazaheri for The Saker Blog The most important thing to understand about France’s Yellow Vest movement is that the Mainstream Media wants you to view it as an isolated incident which exists in a vacuum, when we are much better served to look at in a continuum. When the Yellow Vests started I was not foolish to say: “So what?” After all, the Yellow Vest movement is dwarfed

European Union Corruption Case Study: Ukraine

By Ollie Richardson for The Saker Blog Over the past 4 years, since the coup d’etat in Kiev in 2014 orchestrated by the “civilised” West, a “team of reformers” has been at work in Ukraine. They promised to implement so-called “anti-corruption reforms” in cooperation with European countries, such as France and Germany, who, by the way, both placed a stake on installing project “anti-Russia” aka Euromaidan. But here is where

Why Russia won’t invade the Ukraine, the Baltic statelets or anybody else

[this article was written for the Unz Review] The AngloZionist propaganda machine is constantly warning us that Russia is about to invade some country.  The list of candidates for invasion is long and ranges from Norway to the Ukraine and includes the Baltic statelets, Poland and even countries further West.  Of course, we are also told that NATO and the US are here to prevent that.  Well, thank God for

Book review: Professor Stephen Cohen’s “War with Russia?”

by Yvonne Lorenzo for The Saker Blog Over ten years ago, one of the few voices that I listened to that provided facts outside the propaganda narrative of the legacy mass media and the U.S. government on what the situation was regarding Georgia fighting with Russia was from Russia scholar Professor Stephen Cohen. I felt blessed to discover him and his work. After the events in Ukraine, where a U.S.

Khashoggi Part 4: fake-leftism identical in Saudi Arabian or Western form

by Ramin Mazaheri for The Saker Blog File it under “things we’d like to be true…so we never examine it”: The West’s unstated belief that their politics are exponentially morally superior to those of Saudi Arabia. “We only work with them – we are not at all like them,” is what it boils down to. This article aims to show just how similar “Oriental despotism” is to “Occidental domination” in

Bruckner, Hitler, Malevich (part 2)

by David A. Powell for The Saker Blog Part 2 of 2 parts The case of Malevich – regardless of how it appears in most official narratives of the present (but especially those found in the Web) – is unique in the entire history of art. For the first time in history, one encounters – as Jean-Claude Marcadé has pointed out – not merely an artist writing about art among

Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s interview and answers to questions for the programme “Moscow. Kremlin. Putin” on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Buenos Aires, December 2, 2018 http://www.mid.ru/ru/press_service/video/-/asset_publisher/i6t41cq3VWP6/content/id/3425025?p_p_id=101_INSTANCE_i6t41cq3VWP6&_101_INSTANCE_i6t41cq3VWP6_languageId=en_GB   Question: It was a highly unusual G20 summit, with very many factors.  I don’t remember Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel having to overcome so many obstacles just to get to a meeting. The death of President George H.W. Bush cast

Nations as Foreign Capital Corporations

by Francisco Fernández-Bullón for The Saker Blog As shadow banks become authentic governments of countries, the nations gradually turn into foreign capital corporations or companies, which enslave the workforce. Capital or money doesn’t have a nationality. Its homeland is the accounts, hidden by its owners so as not to pay taxes. Traditionally these accounts were in Switzerland or in the Virgin Islands, but are now scattered around the world in

US Military Contractor Is Hiring Personnel To Support Classified ‘Contingency Operations’ In Ukraine

A US contractor accidentally revealed a US military specialist deployment in the combat zones in Ukraine via an Job Advertisement on LinkedIn. https://southfront.org/us-military-contractor-is-hiring-personnel-to-support-classified-contingency-operations-in-ukraine/ Similarly to the Atlantic Council’s report on independence of Eastern European countries, as well as the meeting between US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin, the posting comes days before the escalation in the Sea of Azov. Mission Essential is a government

The trials and tribulations of Turkish foreign policy

Professor Hasan Unal, a top political scientist based in Istanbul, explains the geopolitics of his region, the eastern Mediterranean and into the Black Sea by Pepe Escobar (cross-posted with The Asia Times by special agreement with the author) When Vladimir Putin visited President Erdogan’s lavish new $500-million presidential palace in Ankara, he had one thing to say: “I’m very impressed.” Professor Hasan Unal, savoring the dry humor, derives as much pleasure

Bruckner, Hitler, Malevich (part 1)

by David A. Powell for The Saker Blog Part 1 of 2 parts This essay attempts to outline why Adolf Hitler remained unsuccessful in his efforts as an old-fashioned (“old-world”) dictator to achieve total control over art. My thesis is that while the Free World had already begun to accomplish the total control of art Hitler sought to achieve, Hitler’s failure lay in not grasping the means employed by the

Uber-loser Poroshenko goes “full Saakashvili”

[This article was written for the Unz Review] Petro Poroshenko is in deep trouble. His ratings have been in the single-digit range in spite of a vast propaganda effort, and his latest attempt to create a salvific crisis involving the usual “Russian aggression” has not only failed but appears to be backfiring. It is now becoming abundantly clear that the Ukronazi provocation was not only breathtakingly stupid and irresponsible, but

Liberals scream Putin sells Russia and call to give away the Kurils to Japan

By Ruslan Ostashko Translated and subtitled by Scott Humor Can a person simultaneously shout that the authorities of “this country” are selling out Russia, and advocate for giving away the Kuril Islands to Japan? A person can, if it’s a Russian-speaking, pro-Western liberal.   We have long been accustomed to the fact that the Ukrainian media writes all sorts of nonsense. However, when it comes to a “Kiev expert” it
