Is peace in the Ukraine possible?

by M.Khazin translation by “G’ of М.Хазин, “Может ли быть мир на Украине?”http://worldcrisis.ru/crisis/1646580 The devaluation of the Ruble and the Yevtushenkov affair have so saturated our mass media that it would seem desirable to stand aside and address a more substantial theme. Namely; under what conditions can the Ukraine know peace? Not just any ‘peace’ but a peace without wholesale disintegration of the country into petty fiefdoms, without a bloodstained

Why Novorussia will never again accept Kiev’s rule

Over the past couple of days I have spend a lot (too lot) of time dealing with the immediate issues such as the dying (or already defunct?) ceasefire agreement.  Whatever importance one can give to this document and its meaning (or lack thereof), it is important not go get bogged down and do what the French call “avoir le nez dans le guidon” (to “have your nose in the handlebars”

NOT a SITREP, but…

Dear friends,Many of you have asked for a SITREP on the situation in the Ukraine.  I have forwarded the request to Juan and Gleb.  I just came back home today and I don’t have the energy to make an analysis right now.  Sorry.  But I will say the following:1) All the signs are that the Ukies have broken through several Resistance lines and that Donetsk is either surrounded or close

Very interesting video – the people of Kramatorsk vs Ukie occupiers (UPDATED)

This video is nothing short of amazing. Think of it, these people are openly confronting what is clearly Ukie death-squad and not just some regular military unit (their gear is brand new and clearly imported).  Even more amazing is the language used.  While I don’t feel like translating it into English, I will say that it is just about the most overly aggressive, rude and provocative as it gets.  You

Joint Declaration by the Foreign Ministers of Ukraine, Russia, France and Germany

Pressemitteilung: Joint Declaration by the Foreign Ministers of Ukraine, Russia, France and Germany 02.07.2014 The Foreign Ministers of Germany, France, Russia and Ukraine strongly reconfirm their commitment to sustainable peace and stability in Ukraine. In this context they stress the necessity of a sustainable ceasefire, to be agreed upon swiftly and to be observed by all concerned, thus putting an end to violence in Eastern Ukraine. Ministers urge that the

Why Novorussian authorities need to get their act together

We already had the somewhat “bipolar” statements of Igor Strelkov who could go from “we are about to win” to “they are about to exterminate us” in 24 hours and then back.  Still, looking at his videos he looked tremendously stressed and frustrated and, what is really a major issue in such situation, he looked severely sleep deprived.  He also clearly was trying to wake up the semi-comatose part of

URGENT Briefing From Igor Strelkov, June 19, 2014

URGENT Briefing From Igor Strelkov, June 19, 2014Translated From Russian by Gleb BazovOriginal: http://icorpus.ru/svodka-ot-strelkova-19-06-2014-2019-s-pometkoj-srochno/In the course of the night from 18th to 19th [of June], the enemy implemented a large-scale transfer of troops from the vicinity of Dolgenkoye village, where they have their stronghold and encampment, to the region of Krasniy Liman. Altogether, over 130 various items of military equipment were moved, including approximately 20 tanks and 40 APCs (“BMD,”

A scorecard for the US “lukewarm war” on Russia – strategic and tactical levels

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

FYI – email exchange with a friend about sending money to help Novorossia

Dear friends,FYI – here is an email exchange I had this morning with a friend which I hope might be of some relevance to those of you who might be contemplating the possibility to send some money to help the people of Novorossia.Kind regards,The Saker——- Hi Saker, I’ve commented on your blog occasionally. Thanks for providing that forum for us.I saw on another blog ( http://sovietoutpost.revdisk.org/?p=186 ) that there evidently

Russian Embassy in Kiev under attack – possible chemical attack in the East tonight – situation in Iraq

Juan just emailed me to let me know that the Russian Embassy in Kiev is under attack by neo-Nazi rioters.  The attack is streamed live here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/vichekyiv http://goodgame.ru/channel/lerss/popup/ Also, there is a 90% probability the gaz attack in Novorossiya will be tonight during the seizing and burning of the Russian Embassy in Kiev as “The World’s” attention is focused on Kiev.   I would add that my “beloved” BBC only reports

Appeal for help: can somebody translate this into English?

Dear friends,Is there somebody here who could translate this video into English?  Especially, the segment between 1:20 and 11:41.  But, of course, translating the full video would be better.If somebody could volunteer his/her time and effort to translate this video, I would recommend posting a note here in the comments section so that others do not duplicate the effort.  Maybe some of you could get in touch with each other

Ukie An-30 spy-plane apparently shot down by NDF

From RT on YouTube: Witnesees report the An-30 was hit over Slavyansk at 17:04 local time. It continued over the horizon. Unconfirmed reports state the pilots ejected and the plane crashed somewhere between Nikolaevka and Krasny Liman, near Golubie Ozera (Blue Lakes) region. It’s also reported that the plane was hit by anti-air missile, presumably launched by anti-Kiev militia:

Making sense of Obama’s billion dollar hammer

You probably heard it by now: Obama has pledged a billion dollars to what my “beloved” BBC called “European security”. The official name for this initiative is the “European Reassurance Initiative”.  You see, Obama and the BBC apparently believe that Europeans are really terrified and that they believe that the Russian tanks might roll into Warsaw, Athens, Rome or Lisbon at any time.  The good news is that Uncle Sam

Lugansk attacked by Ukrainian Air Force

The city of Lugansk in the easternmost part of the ex-Ukraine has been attacked by Ukrainian combat aircraft.  See for yourself: The aircraft in question is a Sukhoi-25, a close air support aircraft which might well become the major threat for the NDF in the next few days or weeks. The Su-25 is very hard to shoot down.  It’s cabin is armored and its widely separated engines are both equipped

The conflict in the Ukraine as seen by a professional soldier

I have recently come into contact with “Juan” who currently resides near the conflict area in the Ukraine. I don’t personally know Juan but I am confident that he/she is a person with a military background and a first-hand knowledge of the Russian military, including elite units. In our email exchanges we soon established that while I was “one of ‘them’ who was buried under 15 kilometers of concrete, rock

Ukraine mini-SITREP May 22th, 00:14 UTC/Zulu: “Ukie attack appears imminent” (UPDATED!)

I am getting a lot of emails warning me that a massive assault seems imminent in the Slaviansk – Kramatorsk – Krasnyi Liman area.  The local commander, Strelkov, has posted a warning about this and RT is also echoing the same concern.  I am also getting warnings from contacts in the Ukraine.  The Ukies are not too keen in fighting at night so I expect that attack to begin tomorrow

Ukrainian news: two phone call leaks which say it all (plus a long Saker rant)

Two phone conversations have recently been intercepted by “parties unknown” (thank you Spetssviaz & 6th GRU!) which are truly revealing of the true nature of the folks put in power by the CIA.The first one is a conversation between Igor Kolomoisky, mega-oligarch, Mafia don, dual Ukrainian-Israeli citizen and “junta governor” of the city of Dnepropetrovsk in southeastern Ukraine and Oleg Tsarev, ex-candidate in the Presidential election (ex Party of Regions,
