A matter-of-fact view backed by numbers 07-12-2014: By profession, I am a geologist, not a fortune teller or a psychic. I have no way of knowing what Putin is currently thinking of or what Poroshenko and Obama talked about yesterday. I am not on intimate terms with oligarchs of different countries involved in the events in Ukraine and

Well, we all knew that the last floor of the SBU (the Ukrainian terror police) building in Kiev was fully occupied by US CIA agents and that no Ukrainians access to it. But this is even better. Apparently, the US decided to fly its flag on the building’s main entrance, just next to the Ukrainian one. See for yourself: There is also a video showing the same scene: http://youtu.be/UffhTyUcUwcThe SBU,
Check the sad and, frankly, pathetic footage recently taken at the Ukrainain-Polish border: these poor people are trying to storm the Polish checkpoint every day to try to sell or barter something, or to find a job. This has been happening every day. The saddest thing about that is that this is only a timid beginning for a phenomenon which will inexorably grow. The poor Ukies can sing “Ще не
According to Vzgliad quoting TASS, these are some of the figures of participation: On average over 30%. The lowest was in the Zakarpatia Oblast: 12.20%; the highest in the Zaporozhie Oblast 36.75%. Then, somehow, the Ukies managed to get 14.65% Donetsk and 13.07% in Lugansk. And then this figure: in Odessa 13.22%. Uh?! Does that mean that there were fewer people voting in Odessa then in Donetsk or Lugansk regions?!
It looks like Poroshenko’s days are numbered. His most likely replacement? The extreme right. originally written by The Saker for Russia Insider So the “great genius” of Ukrainian military strategy, the man who promised to organize a victory parade for the Ukrainian army in Sevastopol was fired. Officially, of course, Ukrainian Defence Minister Valerii Geletei submitted his resignation which was accepted. But the truth of the matter is that Heletey
I envy the Russians, I envy these “katsaps” and “the Moskals”! I envy their Olympics and their army. I have many friends and relatives in Russia. I see how they change and grow. They believe their President. They believe in their army. They are proud of their great history, achievements and victories. It was once our common history … victories and achievements. Not so long ago. They have found their
Check out this interesting video of a Ukie battalion commander. His frustrated speech clearly shows the following:1) The basic Ukie tactic: choose a spot on the map, hammer it with artillery fire for a few hours and then send in soldiers as canon fodder to “mop it up”. What is important to understand here is that well-trained military forces know how to dig in an protect themselves from artillery fire.
First, I have to tell you that I don’t know when or where this video was shot. I would say that it is very recent and that it was show somewhere outside the combat zone. It seems to show a Ukie column stopped on the side of a highway which is being approached by civilians offering the exhausted soldiers some water and beginning a conversation. The rest is self-explanatory (make

For a couple of days now, I have posted various items showing the large number of casualties amongst the Ukie forces fighting against Novorussia, and I have observed with some amusement how many of you have expressed doubts about the veracity of these figures. Today Nora drew my attention to a short video of a Ukie army recruiting officer being confronted by a crowd of civilians, mostly women, mostly mothers.
Honestly? I feel sorry for these guys who probably did not chose to be there. But I am also extremely relieved that they were stopped and wiped out as their role was to completely encircle Novorussia and then mercilessly crush Resistance. Still, as the Russian poet Voloshin wrote “with all my heart, I pray for these and for the others“. The Saker

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
First, I have to explain the title: “A scorecard for US war on Russia”: what we are witnessing today is beyond any doubt a US war on Russia, except that it that is is neither quite “cold” nor “hot”: it’s tepid, lukewarm. Not for the people dying of course, but by it’s choice of methods. It is not a Cold War because people are dying, because tanks, artillery and airpower
