old-english-calligraphy-alphabet-the year 2014 saw an unprecedented surge of patriotism in contemporary Russia, which resulted in popularizing the notion of the Russian World. One reason for increased patriotic sentiment was Crimea’s return to the home port after the overwhelmingly positive vote by its majority-Russian residents in a referendum one year ago. The onset of the liberation war in Donbass from the West-backed Kiev regime was the other. This war truly delineated the stakes for the existence of the Russian World. The latter is not an ethnic, but a civilizational concept that encompasses shared culture, history, and language in the Eurasian space within a traditionalist framework. To a certain extent and despite the obvious ideological differences, the Russian Empire and the USSR embodied the same geopolitical entity.  Continue reading

old-english-calligraphy-alphabet-the Otpor model served well in Serbia, and was perfected and developed further so it could be used in more than thirty countries.

otpor worldwideLast month the cabinet of prince Bin Zayed, the government of United Arab Emirates, in accordance to the federal anti terrorist law, published a list of terrorist organizations to arise awareness in media and society about their work and the danger that comes from them.  On that list there are 85 names, including Al Qaeda, the infamous Boko Haram, Muslim Brotherhood, and others.  So on that list they have the most radical Islamist and jihadist groups that endanger all secular and moderate regimes in Muslim world.  The only non-Islamic organization on that list is Canvas from Belgrade.

The Ukrainian Failed State: Analysis of Phase 3

Part 6 in our series

Sunday’s election sees an increase in ‘anti-Russian’ representation in the Rada: US-backed Pravy Sektor and Svoboda pressure on the US-backed Kiev Junta corroborates a Phase 3 plan, as the Kiev Junta may resume major operations.  The US needs to create a failed state in Ukraine to advance its agenda, with Poroshenko getting caught in the middle.  Both sides vie for the 4GW advantage, while being careful to not lose site of reality from the expanding hyper-reality. 

 

A Note to Readers:  This is the 6th installment of a series of related reports on the real underlying methods and framework which characterize the Ukrainian civil war.  These are thorough in exploring and explaining, in as full a way as possible, the most relevant factors which operate upon this phenomenon.  Like our previous works on the subject, this report is approximately 50 pages at about 15,500 words.  In addition to these six reports, there are another dozen or so shorter articles on the subject to be found on our site, as well as about two dozen interviews and podcasts, which can be found either in the multimedia section or embedded in the shorter articles where indicated.  Being familiar with our past reports makes this report more flexible.  A reader is then able to read each chapter as a stand-alone article

 

old-english-calligraphy-alphabet-the election of Sunday, October 26th, was called by Poroshenko to ostensibly push the government into an even further anti-Russian position.  On the face of it, the election aimed to escalate what has been termed a ‘lustration’ process [1]. This fits well into the common narrative, being that Poroshenko is directly controlled by the US to push against Russia.  While this is true, there is also another more complex dynamic unfolding, which will be explored in this report.

Ukraine protest

old-english-calligraphy-alphabet-the disturbing events in the first two months of 2014 show the severity of the Ukrainian issue and its significance for the west. To argue that the violent and unopposed protests were arranged and protected by US intelligence is to argue the obvious: no one risks their life for abstract issues such as EU membership.

Explaining The Battle For Donetsk Airport

Video: interview with Joaquin Flores – 9 minutes

old-english-calligraphy-alphabet-t578x319he Donetsk airport served not a direct military role, but a political one, as Flores explains in this 9 minute piece.  The US was using this airport as a makeshift military base to house the operations of Death Squads.  These Death Squads were going out at night and engaging in murders, kidnappings/abductions, rapes, assassinations, and sabotage.
