Ukrainians are failing in their nation building, mainly because they don’t follow through with their main principle. Ukraine builds its new national identity on a negative image. It declares itself being not just anti-Russia, but Not Like Russia. It would be if like we live, work, decorate our houses, send our kids to private schools, buy cars, cut lawns, erect a blown up Santa Claus on the roof, all in

Ladies and Gents, true democracy is patented by the U.S. Every nation has to buy this patented democracy from the U.S. Your country has to have a PCD (politically correct democracy) issued by the US State Department. If your country refuses to pay for the patent and attempts to use a pirated copy of homegrown democracy, your people will be punished. You are being informed that, judging by your browser’s

President Putin’s 2015 Q&A marathon LIVE UPDATES http://rt.com/news/250185-putin-live-conference-2015/ Regardless of what is said and done to contribute to the tragedy of Ukraine, we shall keep our focus on one and only constant: the Empire, US and NATO, has initiated the war against Russia. The Empire is coming for Russian natural resources. Russia, on the other hand, is fighting for its survival. Donbass is David who fights with the NATO Goliath.

The regime started escalating their attacks on the 10th already, and launched a full on attack along the whole western front on the day of Orthodox Easter.

Ukraine never seizes to amaze us… By legally labeling the Soviet Union “criminal regime”

IN MEMORY OF THOSE WHO LOST LIVES AT SAUR MOGILA In these relatively peaceful Easter days of April, the public interest gradually turns toward unpatriotic issues of the catastrophic state of economy, domestic politics, the politicians in their variable states of sanity, the Poroshenkos and their antics, and the routine domestic hunt on the harmless members of the Ukraine Communist Party. The interim authorities in Kiev pay over 1.5million Euros

The main development in the Ukraine is the sharp increase in the number of visible signs of the economic collapse taking place. Prices are sky-rocketing, more and more salaries are simply unpaid, shortages are becoming more frequent and as a direct result, so are social protests. The interesting thing is that these protests are not limited to the eastern Ukraine, but are also taking place in western regions of the
As of today the situation in the Ukraine is deceptively calm. If the Novorussians have completed the withdrawal of their heavy weapons, the junta forces by all accounts did not: they did withdraw some, but most if it was not so much a case of withdrawal as a case of relocation and even rotation of forces.
