Fort Russ: Poroshenko: Not Bandera, but a parody of a respectable Fuehrer

Fort Russ: Poroshenko: Not Bandera, but a parody of a respectable Fuehrer | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

 

In that sense, the battle against “cynical banderites” is not a change of ideology but simply giving respectability to a Russophobic ideology. The Russophobes in the Kiev elite are not going anywhere, there will be no rapprochement with Russia, children will continue to be raised to hate the Russian language and the Russians, and there will be no contrition before the Donbass.

 

 

 

Simply the tactics have changed. Washington does not need Ukraine crawling with sociopathic militant detachments—they have failed to mop up the Donbass and therefore they will be written off. Washington needs an authoritarian, russophobic, fascist Ukraine which will prepare to launch suicidal aggression against Russia.

When Billionaires Ruled Ukraine and Planet Earth

When Billionaires Ruled Ukraine and Planet Earth | Global politics | Scoop.it
With Ukraine's government showing signs of fracture, why is the New York Times trying to cement Humpy Dumpty back together again?
Enrique Ferro's insight:

There’s no more puzzling association than another of Filatov’s friends, European Greens party substantial, Pavlo Khazan, who’s not only concerned about fish in the Dnepr River, but good weaponry and support for the armed forces, too. Prevalent in recent shares by Filatov, Khazan was part of a recent delegation to Israel for talks with weapons giant Elbit Systems Ltd. Given the topic of conversation, one can only assume Kiev is planning on installing a Berlin Wall, a la Gaza barrier, in between the west of Ukraine and the Donbass. Such systems as the IDF uses to insulate Israel from Gaza denote something having been ordained. Khazan, whom some Internet researchers proclaim is just an altruistic and naive Jewish millionaire, he's not the weirdest Kolomoisky associate, though.

Fort Russ: Seducing two chicks: Iran and Russia (geopolitically) | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Or you can call it "sneaking". For a discreet approach to the target. This is an animal tactic. I have always said that the Fed is not run by a human. Predators can, sometimes, act to demonstrate that they don't care about the victim or are interested in something else.

Западные СМИ: Путин угрожает Фолклендским островам

Западные СМИ: Путин угрожает Фолклендским островам | Global politics | Scoop.it
Великобритания усилит группировку войск на Фолклендских островах. Об этом заявил министр обороны страны Майкл Фэллон после появившихся в западных СМИ сообщений о том, что Россия может передать 12 дальних бомбардировщиков Су-24 в аренду Аргентине. Эта страна уже давно настаивает на том, что Фолклендские острова должны контролироваться Буэнос-Айресом, а не Лондоном. Ведущая программы In the Now Анисса Науэй обсудила эту тему с редактором издания UK Column Брайаном Герришем.

As Americans, we will seek to be kind--to each other, to the world, and to ourselves. As the president, I will be the first to set that example. I will place education and enlightenment at the top of every agenda, and the elimination of ignorance as my worthy goal. The road to its end begins with my election.

Fort Russ: Russians believe that Putin’s team consists of professionals | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Paradoxically, the Ukraine crisis and the sanctions enabled the Russian government to display its ability to govern, which I suspect was not something most Western leaders expected to see, much to their own dismay.

Fort Russ: Dmitry Yarosh to Poroshenko: "We toppled Yanukovich, and can topple you". Interview. | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

They added amendments to the bills that I proposed, at the last session on Thursday they were supposed to vote, but did not vote, and it is unclear if they will vote at all, after all these statements about the "cynical Banderites" [Poroshenko slip of tongue - KR], and "those who love to shoot" (regarding the killing of the SBU agent - ed.)... I know that he (Poroshenko - ed) is afraid of us. Can't stand us. I told him everything in his face. When Ilovaysk happened, and the first agreements. The battle is raging, and I am told - "Minsk agreement is signed". Called his assistant, said, tell him it's complete idiocy. And the betrayal of national interests. And also said: we toppledYanukovych and can topple you too. He got very offended.

Fort Russ: BREAKING: Kiev junta attacks Shirokino near Mariupol

Fort Russ: BREAKING: Kiev junta attacks Shirokino near Mariupol | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

This is what the OSCE has reported: "From its position the SMM estimated that the shells were fired from a position of the Ukrainian Armed Forces located in Berdianske. The SMM assessed that the majority of these outgoing shells impacted on the southern part of the Shyrokyne village, controlled by “DPR”. About 20 mortar shells were observed to have been fired back from the area controlled by “DPR”."

So it is proved that Ukraine forces started the attack, just in case the showdown escalates, and the West attempts to place the liability of breaking Minsk on Novorossia or Russia...

В Канаде продолжаются студенческие акции протеста против сокращения бюджета | Global politics | Scoop.it
В Монреале полицейские снова применили слезоточивый газ и светошумовые гранаты для разгона акции протеста, которую организовали местные студенты. Молодые люди выступают против проводимой властями провинции Квебек политики жёсткой экономии, предусматривающей сокращение финансирования сферы образования. Студенческие протесты продолжаются в регионе уже почти неделю. По мнению правозащитника Норы Лорето, стражи правопорядка превышают свои полномочия и действуют неоправданно жестоко.

OpEdNews Article: Article: Why Good People Vote For Bad People

OpEdNews Article: Article: Why Good People Vote For Bad People | Global politics | Scoop.it
Americans across the political spectrum agree that our political system is in very bad shape. Almost two thirds of the eligible voters abstained in November 2014. Many who did vote in that election say that they were trying to prevent the election of a candidate even worse than the one they voted for. Unless they are personally very wealthy, candidates for high office are viable only if backed by people with tons of money.
