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

11 French MPs did not simply breach Ukrainian law and international sanctions through their visit to Crimea this weekend. They also took part in a shameful propaganda show, denying flagrant human rights violations under Russian occupation and slandering Crimean Tatars who have been abducted, and very likely murdered. | detail

No surprises as Trump says he could recognize Crimea as ’Russian’ & lift sanctions

Donald Trump did not just call on a hostile state to hack a presidential candidate’s emails on Wednesday. He also said that, if elected US President, he would consider removing the sanctions against that same nation for its aggression against Ukraine and recognize Crimea, which Russia invaded and is occupying, as Russian territory | detail

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

Using Democracy as a Weapon

There was something obscenely ironic about Kremlin officials and surrogates cheering the results of the Brexit referendum, given that a similar democratic exercise could never take place in Vladimir Putin’s Russia. | 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. It probably will, but should not claim that this is “the voice of the people” when those who will suffer most and the longest had no voice and certain politicians and media misinformed their readers about the critical facts | detail

Kremlin proxies stage ‘mass protests’ against real peacekeeping force in Donbas

What conceivable arguments could there be against an armed OSCE mission helping to ensure peace in Donbas? When there are none, except the lack of any intention to stop the war, you bring out “tens of thousands” of protesters, on fear of losing their jobs if they don’t appear. Judging by a report from Deutsche Welle, such stunts may even work. | detail

Russia to answer at Strasbourg for ban on Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Dzhemiliev

Russia’s ban on veteran Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Dzhemiliev entering his native Crimea, now under Russian occupation, has, as expected, been upheld. Change a word here and there and the justification under the current Russian regime for persecuting Dzhemiliev become almost identical to that used by the Soviet Union for holding him in political labour camps for 15 years. | detail
