Russophobia at Large: Meduza Magazine’s Integrity Struggle

Published 2019-06-26 20:58:13 by Ronald Thomas West in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Headline-News, Latvia, Nato, Opinions, Russia, Ukraine, United-States

Editor’s note – This Atlantic Council-esque project, Meduza, was first discovered by FRN in about 2015 when it was an openly and unapologetically, a pro Pravy-Sektor apologist outlet. It’s maintained its original logo and aesthetics, making us sure this is not a mix-up – only its handed the reigns over to some ‘liberals’ – a typical touch and go, give and take, humpty-dumpty move we’ve seen all too many times. In fact, a move that was integral to the Kiev Maidan itself.  – Joaquin Flores About Meduza “…We value our independence and strive to be a reliable, trusted outlet for… Continue ->

PROVOCATIONS: ‘All Russians are bastards’, says Ukrainian delegate at PACE meeting

Published 2019-06-26 19:47:27 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia, Ukraine

STRASBOURG, France – The mood was very exalted this week in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), as the human rights body is about to re-establish Russia as a full member. One of the delegates from Ukraine even stated in English that all Russians are “bastards”. The explosion came from Borislav Beryoza, a Ukrainian and Russianophobic deputy, with a long history of disruptive behavior that marks even the expressive delegates of Kiev. The insult came on Tuesday as he was entering the Palace of Europe, the meeting place of PACE. The Ukrainian deputy is known for his… Continue ->

MAJOR: Terrorist FAIL in attempt to destroy Russian base in Syria

Published 2019-06-26 18:54:33 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Headline-News, Mena, Russia, Syria

LATAKIA – Earlier this morning, jihadists in the Syrian northwest province of Idlib made a pathetic attempt to destroy the Russian Hmeimim airbase in Latakia province with a bomb. The failed attempt to destroy the Hmeimim airbase, Russia’s main airbase in Syria and located in southwest Latakia province, was conducted with attack drones who fired missiles. As expected and as has happened with previous attempts to destroy the Russian base, it was easily repulsed by Russian forces using missile defense systems. This has been the jihadists first attempt to attack the Hmeimim airbase since early May, where once again, their… Continue ->

The Indian-Turkish Embrace of Russia’s S400 as a Shift to the New Silk Road

Published 2019-06-26 18:48:03 by Matthew Ehret in Anglo-5, China, Defense, Eurasia, Headline-News, Nato, Russia, Turkey, United-Kingdom, United-States

India and Turkey’s recent embrace of Russia’s advanced S-400 defense system represents a major turning point in the international battle now underway between two opposing paradigms of global affairs. Both nations are standing up to immense pressure by an Anglo American empire which has been working desperately since 2007 to build a vast military infrastructure around Russia under the utopian doctrine of “Full Spectrum Dominance” (aka: the belief that a nuclear war can be won with a first strike monopoly). This missile shield began to target China and Russia’s South Pacific flank in 2011 when Obama unveiled the military branch… Continue ->

Putin, Lavrov and Xi Call for an End to MAD

Published 2019-06-26 18:01:29 by Matthew Ehret in Anglo-5, Defense, Headline-News, Nato, Russia, United-Kingdom, United-States

The spectre of nuclear war has long hung over the world like a nightmarish sword of Damocles offering humanity much cause for despair at the dual nature of science as a beautiful source of creative power that uplifts and ennobles on the one hand and acts as a harbinger of death and chaos on the other. However, it would be wrong to blame science for the crisis which mankind unlocked with the atom, when the reality is that we have never freed ourselves from the pest of oligarchical systems of rule. Going back to records of the Roman, Persian and… Continue ->

MOSCOW – Jun 26, 2019 – One of Russia’s largest defense contractors conducted flight testing of the low-flying target detection system, in particular drones. The detection of drones will greatly aid in their destruction, if deemed necessary. The recent row over the incident in Iranian airspace is indicative of the great import placed upon drones in recent years. Russian holding company RTI Systems, which specializes in research in the area of ​​radiolocation and telecommunications, reported on Wednesday on the experiments of the new system. “The Radiotechnology Institute AL Mints, a member of the RTI group of companies, is developing technologies… Continue ->

Published 2019-06-26 15:23:40 by Curwen Ares Rolinson in Anglo-5, Finance, Headline-News, New-Zealand, Opinions, Politics

For the past few weeks, we have seen a lot of rhetoric from various ‘right wing’ figures – the Mike Hosking types, for instance – about how ‘free speech’ is under threat from “The Left”. Yet take a look at what’s been the major ‘moving parts’ in several recent ‘anti-free speech’ controversies. ANZ Bank issued this statement on Tuesday: “we do not support the views of Silver Fern Maria Folau and have made our views known to her employer Netball NZ.” [NB – the controversy surrounds Folou’s husbands casual tweets on twitter which were construed as homophobic in nature by… Continue ->

Stop Ramstein Airbase protest: ONE WHO DOES NOT RESIST LIVES WRONG

Published 2019-06-26 14:25:26 by Tom Winter in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Germany, Headline-News, United-States

Rainer Braun and Pascal Luig, writing for the Stopp Air Base Ramstein coordinating group: “Is this worth it?” asks the doubter. “Does it accomplish something?”, thinks the skeptic. “Just me?”, ponders the interested. Yes – you too, and hopefully many more! Because: The Ramstein Air Base is the synonym for drones, war, interventionism and militarism, in Germany and around the world. We no longer want to accept this symbol of war and destruction, we want a peaceful policy. Peace, not war, should come from German soil, that’s why we are also involved in the actions in 2019. It is the… Continue ->
