Fort Russ: Poland's new president demands Ukraine disavow UPA

Fort Russ: Poland's new president demands Ukraine disavow UPA | Global politics | Scoop.it
His UPA criticism may well be only an excuse, a pretext to allow himself to maneuver out of his election campaign pro-Ukraine position while saving face. Because, ultimately, what is the likelihood that the Rada will actually pass a law that "de-heroizes" UPA to a sufficient degree? And even if it does, will Bandera monuments start disappearing from Lvov and other parts of Western Ukraine?

Primer año de la presidencia de Poroshenko: guerra, corrupción y caos en Ucrania - RT

Primer año de la presidencia de Poroshenko: guerra, corrupción y caos en Ucrania - RT | Global politics | Scoop.it
Hace exactamente un año, el multimillonario ucraniano Piotr Poroshenko ganó las elecciones presidenciales anticipadas celebradas tras el golpe de Estado en el país. Aunque durante su campaña electoral prometía poner fin al conflicto militar en Donbass y mejorar la vida de los ciudadanos, los resultados de sus 12 meses en el poder parecen más que desfavorables.

 Japanese Nationalism: Decoy for American Imperialism? :   Information Clearing House - ICH

 Japanese Nationalism: Decoy for American Imperialism? :   Information Clearing House - ICH | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

“There is so much self-censorship in Japanese media, now. And the government is issuing ‘guidelines’, so called ‘Orange Book’, for instance: how to treat anything that is ‘contagious’... or anything related to history. There are instructions to writers and translators. For instance: ‘never use words like Nanking Massacre, except when you quote foreign experts’. Or ‘Yasukuni Shrine – never use word “controversial” in connection to it.’ We cannot write about ‘sexual slaves’ from WWII.”

Suecia declara que posee un plan de acción para atacar a Rusia - RT

Suecia declara que posee un plan de acción para atacar a Rusia - RT | Global politics | Scoop.it
Suecia vuelve a destacar por sus declaraciones infundadas. Esta vez el primer ministro, Stefan Lofven, ha informado que el país posee un plan en caso de "una posible agresión de Rusia". Esta declaración la ha realizado en el marco del inicio de las maniobras aéreas en las que participan nueve países en el norte de Escandinavia.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Suecia ya no es lo que era. Ahora es un país de lunáticos y paranoicos. Las declaraciones de sus políticos son cada vez más estrambóticas, y deberían tratarles en un psiquiatrico como sociópatas muy peligrosos.
