As usual Paul Craig Roberts raises extremely pertinent issues. As readers know, I am concerned that Putin’s tolerance of a too-long-continuing-Ukraine-conflict is encouraging the conflict to spin-out-of-control.  I have written about this risk neglected by the Kremlin many times.  On February 27 I was interviewed by Finian Cunningham about this risk.  If the interview is posted online, I will link to it hopefully before it is taken down by the narrative controllers. There is no doubt that I have been proven correct that the provocations, accepted by the Kremlin with only words in opposition, have increased in severity over the past two years.  …

This letter, which is available on the internet, is from a Ukrainian-American who recently visited her devastated homeland. It should be recalled that prior to being declared “independent” Ukraine was the most economically advanced part of the Soviet Union, with an educated population of about forty million. Then, in 1991, the collective West took it under its wing. By Victoria Nuland’s public admission five billion dollars were pumped into Ukraine to change its geostrategic orientation and delude its populace. The results are today plain to see. Ukraine has been turned into a Western colony under a bought and paid for…

These five trends are considered to be the most significant grand strategic ones that are expected to have the greatest impact on the global systemic transition across the coming year I’m a Moscow-based American political analyst with a PhD. in Political Science from MGIMO, and this is my second yearly review of the New Cold War after I published my first on the one-year anniversary of the special military operation (SMO) here. I’ve been analyzing the New Cold War every day since 24 February 2022, beginning at now-defunct OneWorld till mid-2022 and continuing at my Substack to the present. Here’s what I learned from doing this daily for my second year straight:…

While the long historical introduction at the beginning of the interview with Tucker Carlson was impressive in its breadth, the Presidential statement below covers the same topic but in much greater depth. We therefore recommend it to our readers as an accurate and reliable factual matrix by which to judge and interpret current events. During the recent Direct Line, when I was asked about Russian-Ukrainian relations, I said that Russians and Ukrainians were one people – a single whole. These words were not driven by some short-term considerations or prompted by the current political context. It is what I have said on numerous occasions and what I firmly believe. I therefore feel it necessary to explain…

We are happy to give the floor to the Russian ambassador to Ireland, Yuri Filatov, who recounts his futile efforts to persuade “democratic” Ireland’s media to publish his assessment of the proximate causes of the Ukrainian crisis. One would think that the Russian point of view about the origins of the current conflict would greatly interest the Irish public and that the local media would be keen to keep their readers properly informed by publishing a variety of views on that subject. According to the ambassador, however, that has not been the case. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov does not…

If Western media are to be believed, after the countless failures of their poisonous preparations clumsy Russian chemists seem now to have finally gotten it right. Alexey Navalny is reported to be dead and the Kremlin Borgias can now say: Gotcha! However, unfortunately for the orchestrators of the new media stunt that after February 16 plunged the Western political class and MSM into a hysterical frenzy, the carefully crafted delusion began to unravel as soon as it was launched. First off, it turned out that the politicians and media began to react as if on cue literally just a quarter hour after…

Germany’s role as the US’ preferred “Lead From Behind” partner in the EU will become more prominent in the aftermath of Russia capturing Avdeevka, which will take the form of connecting the “military Schengen” with the revived Weimar Triangle in order to accelerate the construction of “Fortress Europe”. Russia finally captured the Ukrainian fortress town of Avdeevka following a protracted battle that ended in Kiev’s chaotic retreat and the abandonment of its wounded troops. The timing took place as the Western elite met in Germany for this year’s Munich Security Conference over the weekend, which conveniently enabled them to plan their next moves in this proxy war.…

“Finland is what it has always been: a periphery to be taken away by the big ones, without knowledge and will for independence,” says Mauno Saari, our new Finnish columnist whom we introduce with great pleasure. Our Serbian readers will understand his point easily. On February 15th Serbia held its annual Statehood Day celebration. It was a sad occasion because everything Mr. Mauno Saari has written about Finland applies to Serbia also, and in full measure. The independent state of Finland has never existed. And it doesn’t come with the current trend. I do not apologize for this perception, I…

So much has happened in the two years since the special operation began that many folks either missed or forgot about what Zelensky told the World Economic Forum in Davos back in May 2022 Russian foreign spy (SVR) chief Sergey Naryshkin recently revealed that the G7 is planning to appoint a special envoy to Ukraine who’d function as a de facto governor tasked with ensuring that the regime’s elite remain loyal to the West instead of defecting to Russia as their side’s losses pile up. NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg is reportedly tipped for this position after his tenure expires in October, but regardless of whoever…

All breadline massacres are equal, Orwell might have written, whilst adding that some breadline massacres are more equal than others. Such a thought comes to mind after February 4, 2024, when a Ukrainian armed forces projectile killed 28 residents in the city of Lysychansk, Lugansk region, and wounded several dozen. The civilian victims were standing in line in front of a local bakery, intending to buy bread. Those with a memory that goes back longer than fifteen minutes (unfortunately neither the majority nor even a significant minority nowadays) may recall that a similar incident took place in Sarajevo, during the…
