Meanwhile in Odessa, to fight corruption is to put your life on the line

Published 2019-03-07 18:36:41 by Tom Winter in Eurasia, Headline-News, Opinions, Ukraine

By Florian Hassel, in Südeutsche Zeitung Defenseless in Odessa Anyone fighting against corruption or for civil rights in Ukraine lives dangerously: the attacks on activists are increasing throughout the country. Odessa: Oleg Mihalik has escaped death for the second time in five years. On September 22, the 43-year-old local politician was returning from a rally to his home in the center of Odessa when an assassin shot him in the chest. He was clinically dead. The port city on the Black Sea is one of the richest cities in Ukraine – and one of the most corrupt and criminal ones. The… Continue ->

Insurgents In Jammu & Kashmir are Not Liberators – They Kill Muslim & Hindu Alike

Published 2019-03-07 17:50:53 by Curwen Ares Rolinson in Eurasia, Headline-News, India, Opinions

So earlier this evening, a terrorist attack took place in Jammu; hospitalizing at least 28, of which I’m told, some have already died. This attack was carried out in a similar manner to other such outrages over the past ten months – with a hurled grenade. Yet while other instances have more directly targeted Indian police, this one just went straight for the mass-casualty civilian-target option instead. One, nominally against a local police station – which nevertheless managed to hit a bus-station in front of it, instead; and another, along the same stretch of road as the current one, which… Continue ->

Times we laughed at the US State Department: “Now is the time to act in support of democracy”

Published 2019-03-07 16:30:53 by Tom Winter in Latin-America, United-States, Venezuela

We’ve done a numbered series with this heading. To read earlier unintended humor from Foggy Bottom, simply enter “US State Department” in our search box at upper right. Frankly, it has been hard to keep up. Another factor in not adding to the series in so long a time is that the State Department’s policies are so often woeful and tragic, leading to tears and sorrow instead. But often, it is just healthy to laugh. This one is the contrast between the extensive, acknowledged, meddling and US efforts to undo Venezuela, leading up to the we-don’t-meddle in other countries’ affairs… Continue ->

ZAKHAROVA: U.S Holds Fast to ‘MILITARY OPTION’ on Venezuela

Published 2019-03-07 16:13:44 by Joaquin Flores in Headline-News, Latin-America, Russia, Venezuela

MOSCOW – Washington has not shelved the option of military intervention for Venezuela, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told reporters at a press briefing on Thursday. “With its explicit militarist plans for Venezuela rebuffed even by the United States’ closest allies from among Latin American countries who said resolutely that external military intervention was unacceptable, the establishment in Washington, nevertheless, has not taken the military intervention option off the table,” the diplomat said. She recalled that the US openly announced the creation of a coalition to pursue regime change in the South American country. “All statements about the need… Continue ->

IN DEPTH: Russia’s New Tank-Killer Drone “Kamikaze” Surpasses Israeli Tech

Published 2019-03-07 15:33:39 by Guest Author in Eurasia, Headline-News, Israel, Russia

By Alexander Artamonov – At the exhibition of weapons and related technologies at IDEX-2019, held in Abu Dhabi, the company ZALA AERO, part of the “Kalashnikov” company, demonstrated the army’s unmanned aerial vehicle called “Cube”, which military experts have already dubbed the “kamikaze.” By its nature, the “Cube” is a high-precision strike complex drone. It can even be launched into the field with a portable catapult. No special skills for targeting are required. In other words, even a first-year soldier will be able to use the “Cube” on the front line after undergoing short-term training. The device is capable of… Continue ->

VIDEO: What is the Strategy of Eurasianism? A Critical Examination in Brief

Published 2019-03-07 13:44:51 by Padraig McGrath in Eurasia, Kazakhstan, Opinions, Propaganda, Russia, Tajikistan, Ukraine

The below video is an excellent exposition of Eurasianism, but not without defect which I’ll be exploring in brief.   One weakness which it does inadvertently highlight in Eurasianist theory is this: The “peninsula of peninsulas” at the western extremity of the Eurasian land-mass is still part of Eurasia. “Europe” is not a continent of itself. “Europe” is only a peninsula of Eurasia. But that immediately makes the Eurasianist geographical definition of Eurasia problematic. Let’s look at it from the perspective of intellectual history. Where did the intellectual building-blocks of “European civilization” come from? They are mostly of Persian,… Continue ->

MOSCOW: “Venezuela Successfully Avoided a Provocation by NOT Arresting Guaido”

Published 2019-03-07 13:09:11 by Joaquin Flores in Headline-News, Latin-America, Russia, Venezuela

MOSCOW – Alexander Schetinin, head of Latin American Affairs at the Russian Foreign Minsitry, told the RIA Novosti news agency that Venezuelan authorities avoided the provocation implied by the arrival of self-proclaimed President Juan Guaidó at Simón Bolívar International Airport,  by not arresting him.  READ MORE: IN DEPTH: Venezuela Foils U.S Trap By NOT Arresting Guaidó – Here’s What Happened And Why Schetinin said this as part of a broader statement against the continental reconfiguration strategy that the United States is carrying out, appealing again to the old Monroe Doctrine, in exact words of Trump’s national security adviser, John Bolton.  Since the… Continue ->

WATCH Russian Su-27 Intercept U.S Reconnaissance Aircraft over Baltic

Published 2019-03-07 11:56:19 by Joaquin Flores in Eurasia, Headline-News, Nato, Russia, United-States

MOSCOW – The Russian Defense Ministry just published a video of the interception of an RC-135 reconnaissance aircraft of the US Air Force by an Su-27 Russian fighter jet, over the Baltic Sea . The footage shows how the Su-27 moves closer to the American electronic intelligence aircraft and accompanies it.
