Mark it down, Mr Trump, Russia has already gone into Ukraine

Considering his multiple advisers with strong Russian links, US presidential candidate Donald Trump has proven disturbingly ignorant about Russia’s aggression against Ukraine - both Crimea & Eastern Ukraine, and seems quite indifferent to international law if a good deal can be struck with Russia | detail

Putin wants ’grounds’ to release innocent Ukrainian political prisoners

Grotesquely flawed trials and proof of total innocence are not enough for Russian President Vladimir Putin, it seems. He needs ‘grounds’ why he should release Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov, civic activist Oleksandr Kolchenko and other Ukrainian political prisoners. | detail

Les collabos français embrassent le monument aux envahisseurs russes en Crimée

11 parlementaires français ne se sont pas contentés de violer la loi ukrainienne et les sanctions internationales en visitant la Crimée. Ils ont également participé à un spectacle de propagande honteuse, niant les violations flagrantes des droits de l’homme sous l’occupation russe et calomniant les Tatars de Crimée qui ont été enlevés, et très probablement assassinés. | detail

French Collaborators Kiss Monument to Russian Invaders of Crimea

Survey finds only 18% identifying with Kremlin-backed ‘Donetsk people’s republic’

If the results of a recent survey can be trusted, less than one in five residents of areas under the control of the so-called ‘Donetsk people’s republic’ [DNR] identify themselves as ‘citizens’ of this unrecognized creation. The result is even lower than the level of support which the militants themselves inadvertently revealed, and then ‘adjusted’, but it can certainly not be dismissed as insignificant. | detail

A British Foreign Secretary who excuses Russia’s invasion of Crimea?

The new UK Prime Minister doubtless had her reasons for giving leading Brexit campaigner Boris Johnson a cabinet post. Making him Foreign Secretary, however, defies any comprehension. It is especially difficult not to view this as an affront to all those currently facing persecution in Russian-occupied Crimea given his extraordinary attempt to blame Russia’s aggression against Ukraine on the EU | detail

Pro-Kremlin Far-right Bulgarian Party Used in Latest Ukrainian ‘Separatism’ Fake

If you believe the media, ‘Bulgaria’ has endorsed the demand of local Ukrainian Bulgarians and called on Ukraine to create a Bulgarian autonomy. This comes just weeks after Romanians were also reported to be demanding autonomy. Ukraine, in short, is falling apart, and Crimea and Donbas were just the beginning. | detail

Brexit a gift to Putin, the far right & Trump, a blow to democracy

Britain’s parliament is not legally obliged to heed this referendum.
