Russia should have a standing proposal to all the former Soviet republics to come back and to become a part of Russia.

Imagine that once you were a part of a big friendly, albeit, slightly dysfunctional family habituating on an enormous estate. One day, strangers came and gave you a slice of this estate and asked to stay out and survive on your own in the cold, cunning, soulless world. Now, you are an outsider. How would you feel towards those who stay on the estate and get to enjoy all its indulgences, like the great history, great mineral wealth, culture, security, and sense of belonging with those who understand your humor without a translator? I bet you would justifiably feel hurt and enraged.

You’re now joining the old enemies (the West) who want to have this estate all to themselves. You are trying to be friendly with your old enemies against your ex-relatives (the Russians). Deep inside you know that the old enemies are just using you as a disposable item to hurt those former relatives who inherited the estate. Worse yet, your new friends are fighting with your ex-relatives over the estate on your own slice. They already burned down your tool shed, took over your vegetable patch, and ran over your cat. Your new friends raided your jewelry box and stole your grandmother’s stash of gold coins demanding you to pay for their friendship. You are suffering the most! You didn’t even want to be out of this estate in a first place.

That’s why Russia has to give a standing offer to all the former Soviet republics to reunite.
Two Germanys have done this, so shall we.
However, this idea might prove to be untimely considering the mood on a street in Russia. Judging by the comments on Russian Media sites, this mood might be qualified as pure anger towards Europe and the US.
Can you blame Russians for these sentiments? After decades of peaceful trading, traveling, real estate shopping, and schooling in Europe, Russians are presented with the Neo-Barbarossa plan.

Russia has no more cheeks to slap. There are 10 million more women in Russia than men. The 20s century “integration” with Europe had cost Russia about 100 million innocent lives. The entire population of Russia today is only as large as the number of the US males.
President Putin has pointed out that capacity of NATO is 4 times of the capacity of Russia. That’s why Russia had issued a new military doctrine whose main innovation is the concept of “de-escalation”—the idea that, if Russia were faced with a large-scale conventional attack that exceeded its capacity for defense, it might respond with a limited nuclear strike.

The economic and military siege of Russia on her Western borders is mostly being completed, see the following list of NATO buildup on the Russia’s European boarders.

“When people and goods cross borders,” Ludwig von Mises used to quote, “armies do not.” Under the rule of American Hegemony, trade is war. [Source]

Looks like Russia abandons her 400 year long quest to become an equal European state, and looks inward and Eastward. By going away from unfair trade agreements with Europe, and closing itself to the Anti-Russian Western propaganda, a cultural and scientific revival, economic prosperity might be in store for the Russian people.

Rostislav Ishchenko, President of the Center for System Analysis and Forecasting, at the conference Ukraine Crisis and the Global Politics of the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies May 15-17, 2015 [Source] says that the war Ukraine is not really a war in Ukraine, even so it might look like this to people who suffer, who fight, and die there. We are witnessing a war of American Imperialism on the global community.

American Imperialism needs to expend forever in order to survive. If it stops expending, it will collapse. They practically reached the end of the planet. Soon, they have to start expending inward. We have now the golden 1 billion that lives for the expense of everybody else. Soon, it will be golden 500 million, 100 million and so forth. It’s a war for our survival. It’s being decided now what nations will get a chance to live in a beautiful future world.

If we want to win this war, and not just a battle in Donbass, we have to brace ourselves for the long fight ahead. NATO is training the entirety of Eastern Europe to fight against Russia. We might not like each other here in this room, we might have deferent points of view, but none of these matter. Here in Saint Petersburg, or in Moscow, or in Novosibirsk, we, Russian people, are simply fighting for our future existence. With a computer, a piece of paper and a pen, or a machine-gun, we are fighting for our lives. That’s why today we have to start thinking about our survival as a nation, and us as people.

Neo-McCarthyism and the US Media: The crusade to ban Russia policy critics [Source]
This article dissects the report, titled “The Menace of Unreality: How the Kremlin Weaponizes Information, Culture and Money,” which is a joint project of the Interpreter webzine and the Institute for Modern Russia (IMR), a Manhattan-based think tank funded by the exiled Russian oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky. Co-written by the journalists Michael Weiss and Peter Pomerantsev.

The variety of professional anti-Russia actors featured in this article is enlightening. “the Interpreter webzine and the Institute for Modern Russia (IMR), a Manhattan-based think tank funded by the exiled Russian oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky. ” “Khodorkovsky’s agenda—to bring regime change to Russia.” He was called by members of media a “toxic’ investor.” “Indeed, in 2000, Foreign Affairs described him and his fellow oligarchs as “a dangerous posse of plutocrats” who “threaten Russia’s transition to democracy and free markets” as well as “vital US interests.”

“The Legatum Institute, a London-based research organization with close links to the IMR” “Legatum is the brainchild of billionaire venture capitalist Christopher Chandler. Like Browder and Khodorkovsky, Chandler made his billions in post-Soviet Russia. According to Ames, he and his brother “reportedly were the single biggest foreign beneficiaries of one of the greatest privatization scams in history: Russia’s voucher program in the early 1990s.”

The author’s conclusion is that that “Weiss and Pomerantsev’s overwrought fears are just a pretext for whatever they and Khodorkovsky have truly set out to do. Their real goal is not to fight Russian “disinformation” but to stigmatize and marginalize—even exclude from American discourse—anyone with a more nuanced view of Russia’s role in the Ukraine crisis. They are waging this war against enemies real and imagined, and by doing so they are helping to create an atmosphere in which dissenting opinion on US policy toward Russia becomes impermissible.”
There are tons of facts and discoveries in this article. Kudos to James Carden. This one is a real eye-opener and a keeper.

The article touches the nerve of the Russia’s great tragedy of the presidency of B. Yeltzin and the American spin-doctors behind him.

Mass exodus of Jews from Ukraine
Авигдор Эскин: Евреи массово бегут из Украины [Source] [Source]
Interview of the Israeli journalist and political analyst Avigdor Esken.
Since the beginning of 2015 over 7,000 Jews took refuge in Israel. We don’t know how many more moved to Russia, Europe, and the US.
Bizarrely enough, some Jewish organizations try to prevent the Jews leaving the country.
Eskin expressed hope that soon all the Ukrainian Jews will move out of the country.

Just this past spring there was large body of the Western propaganda describing how fabulously the Jews co-exist with the Nazis in Ukraine.
Something has changed.
There is no indication so far that Jews are threatened by the neo-Nazis in Ukraine.
Does exodus of Jews mean that a real modern war between real armies of NATO and Russia on the territory of Ukraine is in the working?
Does this exodus of Jews from Ukraine mean that the Kiev junta is going to be toppled?

There are about 20 million Russian people who live in Ukraine right now. They were forcefully Ukrainized during the last 20 years. Their names even were changed to make them sound Ukrainians, but not their essence and the feeling of belonging to the Russian civilization.

These 20 million or so people should follow the example of Jews and moved to Russia. The same should be done by those Russian who live in Transnistria. These people will be happier in Russia. Their children will have a future in Russia that they will never be allowed to have in fascist oligarchic Europe. In addition, this repatriation will tip the scale in the schi vs. borsch dispute.

May 26, 2015 – The Russia’s Ministry of Defense claim that there is a plan for coordinated efforts between NATO, Ukraine, Moldova and Romania to attack Russia’s peacekeepers in Transnistria and to take over the republic., while simultaneously attacking the Donbass republics.

Russia’s military intelligence reports that a plan is already in action to destroy the Russia’s peacekeepers and to replace them with the joined Moldova-Romanian-Polish peacekeepers. In effect this will cancel the independence of Transnistria that has high percentage of Russian ethnic population. This will result in ethnic genocide of the Russians in this region.

Romania and the Republic of Moldova are preparing the setting up of a joint peace keeping battalion in the near future. According to the Foreign Ministry in Chisinau, the project has been agreed on during recent talks between the Romanian Defence Minister Micea Dusa and the Moldovan Defense Minister Viorel Ciubotaru. ”The Republic of Moldova sees Romania as a strategic partner in the political and military dialogue,” reads a release with the Defense Ministry in Chisinau. Romania, a NATO member, and Moldova, defined by its constitution as a neutral state.

If my computations are any good, these unnecessary military and political assaults on status quo in the Eastern Europe and the Black Sea are design to enrage Russia and to distract her from the upcoming this summer an onslaught on Syria.

History repeat itself: Kiev junta established military-civil administrations in occupied territories of Donetsk and Lugansk republics. USA/EU/Israel by own puppets renovated experience of military-civil commandant’s offices of Nazi Germany in occupied Ukraine.

Quote of Kiev junta media:

“Poroshenko appointed seven heads of military-civil administrations in the Donbass
[Members] Military-civil administrations in the liberated territories of Donetsk and Lugansk regions be police and military [officers]. President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko by his decree enacted decision of CNSD [Council of National Security and Defense] of 26 May on the appointment of the seven heads of military-civil administrations in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions…”

For a clearer understanding of the situation in the fascist Ukraine, I want to remind You that all fascist battalions as “Azov”, “Aydar” and others are part of the Interior Ministry of Kiev junta. The heads of the fascist battalions can become the heads of the military-civil administrations in the territories occupied by Kiev junta.

4. Taking into consideration the tragic events of this week in the Lugansk People’s Republic, it worth to quote an article from last year explaining how the US-backed Kiev regime will resort to subterfuge, sabotage, assassinations and subversion if the Kiev military starts losing. This is indeed what is going on right now in the so-called ATO (anti-terrorist operation) zones of the Lugansk and Donetsk regions. [Source]

Below are the quotes from the article appeared in the Washington Post on Sept, 12, 2014: “Yet in a country where partisans once fought bloody underground operations against occupying Nazis and, later, the Soviets, more and more voices here are insisting that Ukraine should instead endorse a protracted guerrilla war”.

“Such an effort, advocates say, could wear down an enemy that Ukraine cannot beat by conventional means. Poroshenko, while pursuing peace, conceded as much this week. He noted preparations were underway to launch counterinsurgency operations if the pro-Russian rebels completely break the current truce”.

“Nevertheless, advocates say a move toward sabotage, targeted assassinations and other insurgent tactics could potentially alter the dynamic of the conflict in the months ahead, costing the Russians perhaps more than they bargained for when launching their power play in Ukraine”.

“On 25 May, Ukrainian sabotage and reconnaissance group blew up a locomotive in the LPR on the Lutugino-Semeykino line. They placed an explosive device on the tracks and set it off when the train went over it. There were no injuries, but the damage closed the rail line temporarily. This confirms that the Ukrainian forces are trying to disrupt civilian infrastructure objects in the DPR and LPR,” — Basurin said.
