After blocking UN peacekeepers, OSCE observers, international aid agencies and an international tribunal over the downing by militants of a passenger airline, Russia and its proxies in Donbas have brought in their own ‘human rights investigators’, led by Jacques Closterman, a French politician linked with Marine Le Pen’s far-right National Front | detail

Satirists rip into Russia’s ‘Humanitarian Convoys’ bearing death & grenades as ‘children’s toys’

Ukraine’s Mirko Sablich group have put out a new video clip exposing Russia’s lies over the so-called ‘humanitarian convoys’ illegally crossing into areas of Donbas under Kremlin-backed militant control.

In Putin’s new dodgy ‘referendum’ Crimeans asked to reject Ukrainian electricity

The vast majority of Crimeans are willing to forego electricity rather than sign a contract in which Crimea is referred to as part of Ukraine. This, at least, is the result of a ‘survey’ carried out, processed and reported less than 24 hours after Russian President Vladimir Putin decreed that Crimeans opinion should be asked | detail

Poland’s new right-wing government takes a hatchet to rule of law & democracy

New Zaporizhya paid ‘separatist’ stunt linked with close Putin associate

The reports of plans to declare a so-called ‘Zaporizhya people’s republic’ and demands for ‘special status’ are disturbing both because of the obvious analogy with the Kremlin-backed ‘republics’ in Donbas, and due to the reported link with Viktor Medvedchuk, a close associate of Russian President Vladimir Putin | detail

Russia’s crimes in Crimea, not ending sanctions, should be on the West’s agenda,

There are certainly other parts of the world where rights are violated on a far greater scale. None, however, in a country which 21 years ago was given binding guarantees of security from Russia, the USA and Great Britain. The West has levers against Russian lawlessness and should use them | detail

Right-wing Racist Polish MEP sings Russia’s praise in illegal trip to Crimea

Janusz Korwin-Mikke is notorious at home and in the European Parliament for views on migrants as ‘human trash”, overtly racist language and much more, but he is a welcome - and officially invited - guest for Russia and its occupation regime who can always be relied on for unwavering support of the Kremlin and all its policies | detail

More evidence that captured Russians were military intelligence officers

The court hearing on Nov 23 in the trial of two Russians captured in May 2015 in eastern Ukraine demonstrated yet again what an uphill battle the men’s defence lawyers will have to convince anybody that their clients, Yevgeny Yerofeyev and Aleksandr Aleksandrov, were not active Russian military intelligence officers [GRU]. | detail

A German – Russian Donbas ‘Humanitarian’ Con

The ‘social disorientation’ which the Kremlin’s proxies in Donbas claimed they were seeking to prevent by expelling western aid organizations recently is clearly ideological. It is Russia, and German MPs faithfully parroting Kremlin propaganda, that are presented as tackling the mounting humanitarian crisis caused by Russia’s hybrid warfare. | detail
