In Memoriam: Daria Dugina (a MUST READ)

By Batiushka for The Saker blog The news of the Western-sponsored terrorist murder of Alexander Dugin’s daughter, Daria, has shocked us all. Of course, in one sense it is no different from all the other brutal murders carried out by drone by the Obama regime, or the CIA’s disposal of countless human-beings under their puppet regimes from the Philippines to Vietnam, from Italy to Latin America, from Greece to Africa,

Two Lives: Victoria and Victorine

By Batiushka for The Saker blog Victoria Victoria Jane Nuland was born in 1961 to Sherwin Nudelman, the son of Ukrainian Jewish immigrants, and a British-born mother, Rhona Goulston. Already in his teens Nudelman had changed his name to Nuland in order to carve out a career. With the British-named Victoria, an Anglo-Zionist was clearly in the making. Indeed, she duly studied at an elite private boarding school in Connecticut, whose alumni

On the Transfiguration of Europe: From Nuland’s Dream to Nuland’s Nightmare

By Batiushka for The Saker blog Introduction: Carpathian Rus The geographical centre of Europe just happens to be in the post-1945 Ukraine, 15 km (10 miles) from Rakhovo (in the Ukrainian occupiers’ language, Rakhiv). This is in the far east of the Ukraine, in the province of ‘Zakarpattia’ or ‘Transcarpathia’, which is the imperialist name given by the Ukrainian centralisers to the area. In reality, it is Kiev that is

Goodbye, Trafalgar Square: Celebrating Freedom in Europe

A Look Forward to 2035 by Batiushka for The Saker blog England Following the 2034 collapse of Britain and the popular overthrow of its millennial Establishment after nearly two decades of political turmoil, England moves ahead. Last week international arrest warrants were issued by the new People’s Government for the detention of the elderly war criminals Blair (Serbia, Afghanistan, Iraq), Cameron (Libya, Syria and the Yemen) and Johnson (the Ukraine),

A Tale of Two Cities

By Batiushka for The Saker (With Apologies to Charles Dickens) Moscow and Washington It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the

Z for Zorro

By Batiushka for the Saker blog Introduction: European Z The collapse of the EU has never been a question of ‘if’, only of ‘when’. The decomposition of the Brussels Yoke of unelected bureaucrats has already long been visible and its collapse foretold years ago. First there was Grexit (which was averted at the last moment at huge cost), then Brexit, which actually happened, and then was an alphabet jungle of

Austrian Barbarians Go Home!

By Batiushka for The Saker blog (With apologies to the peoples of Austria and France) As we write, the wicked Austrian terrorist State under its manic leader Putzin continues its completely unprovoked invasion of East France. President Putzin is well-known, as he is very short (not that we wish to belittle him) and has only one testicle, as everybody knows. His invasion and occupation of East France have been going

The Decline and Fall of the Western Empire

By Batiushka for The Saker blog Sometime in the future a learned academic will be writing a weighty tome with the title The Decline and Fall of the Western Empire. Perhaps the Contents Page will include, among others, twelve chapters with titles something like this: World War One. World War Two. Korea. Vietnam. Palestine. Iran. Nicaragua. Afghanistan. Iraq. Syria. Ukraine. Taiwan. Indeed, Karin Kneissel, the former Austrian Foreign Minister, is

The End of Castle Europe and the First Day of Freedom

By Batiushka for The Saker And they filled the whole land with these castles. They sorely burdened the unhappy people of the country with forced labour on the castles; and when the castles were built, they filled them with devils and wicked men. Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, 1137 Introduction: The Three Aims of the SMO Revised It has now been officially admitted that the three aims of the Allied Special Operation in

On the Future of Europe: A Proposition from 1 January 2023

By Batiushka for the Saker Blog Almost one thousand years of Western Imperialism are coming to a shameful and self-inflicted death, one way or another As schoolchildren will tell you, the names of the continents begin and end with the same letter, A: Asia, Africa, America, Australia, Antarctica. There is one exception: Europe, which though still beginning and ending with the same letter, the letter is not A, but E.

Oligarchy or Patriarchy? Rule by the Few or Rule for the Many?

By Batiushka for the Saker Blog Introduction: Capitalism or Communism? A commentator on this site recently accused me of being ‘a visceral anti-Communist’! I was quite amused (but also grateful, as he has inspired this essay). Such an accusation goes back to the old twentieth-century apparent abyss between ‘Left and Right’. Actually, although I have always been a social conservative, I have also always been for social justice, as I

On Liberating Europe

By Batiushka for The Saker Blog And they had tails like scorpions and there were stings in their tails and their power was to hurt men for five months. Apocalypse 9, 10 Introduction: ‘The End of History’ Just over thirty years ago the Communist USSR went bankrupt – it could not raise enough money to pay off its debts on capital markets. The West should have gone bankrupt at the

To Hell or Not to Hell?

By Batiushka for the Saker Blog The Barbarian West By the fifth century AD the barbarians had moved into Western Europe in significant numbers, bringing about the fall of Old Rome in what is now Italy in 410. Curiously, the barbarianism they brought with them, combined with the systematic brutality of Old Rome by the most brutal of them, the Franks, survives today. Indeed, we can state quite clearly that

The Judgement of the Nations

By Batiushka for the Saker Blog A frequent topic among both contributors and commentators on this site is the discussion as to whether the Special Military Operation in the Ukraine will take a few months or a few years. It is a common question and there are different opinions. Let me say now that I am not qualified even to speculate on this, let alone have an opinion. I do

Unbelief or Real Belief: Johnsonland or President Putin

By Batiushka for The Saker Blog Introduction: Going, Going, (and Nearly) Gone Great Nations are born in real belief and enthusiasm. They die in unbelief and cynicism. Speech to Students in 1939, by Alfred Noyes, English Writer (1880-1958) Bojo the Clown has resigned – though he has not quite gone. Even so, only three days before his resignation on 7 July, this self-deluded figure had stated that he would still

Sitrep Britain: The Titanic Hits the Iceberg

By Batiushka for The Saker Blog Power is like cancer – it eats you slowly without you realising it. St Nectarius of Egina (+ 1920) Possibly the greatest clown UK politics has ever seen is on his way out of the door. Ministers and aides, forty-one within twenty-four hours, have left his sinking ship. As for Johnson himself, he is spending his last days or hours rearranging the deckchairs with

The Unravelling of the UK and the Western World and Their Reconfiguration

By Batiushka for the Saker Blog Introduction: The UK The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (UK) has a population of 67.1 million. It is then the fourth most populous country in Europe, after Russia, Germany and, just, France. This UK as such has existed only since 1921, after the independence of Eire or the Republic of Ireland, which had been forced into union with Great Britain, that

‼️ We Are Z

By Batiushka for the Saker Blog The Schloss Elmau, ‘a Luxury Spa Retreat and Cultural Hideaway’ was a very suitable location at the end of June 2022 for the G7 elitists, ‘hiding away’ from the anger of their exploited peoples. Holed up in a castle in Bavaria (sounds familiar?), protected by thousands of paramilitaries, the neo-feudal Gang of 7 of the Western world met and condemned freedom, which is another

Europe’s Third Attempt at Suicide and Generation Z+

By Batiushka for The Saker Blog ‘The next war in Europe will be between Russia and Fascism, except that Fascism will be called Democracy.’ Fidel Castro, c. 1992   Introduction Europe is a serial suicide. The first attempt began in Sarajevo in 1914 and finished in Versailles in 1919. The second began a generation later in Warsaw in 1939 and ended in Berlin in 1945. Having very nearly succeeded at

Some Replies to Some Comments on Recent Articles

By Batiushka for the Saker Blog 1. Errors I do apologise for the rare error which comes from not checking the text enough times. For example, Kuleba is of course the Ukrainian Foreign Minister, not the Minister of the Interior. Thank you, readers, for any factual corrections! 2.
