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.

Politicizing History: Parliament adopts Dangerously Divisive Laws

At a time when Russia is waging undeclared war against Ukraine and heavily arming militants in Donbas, the need for unity is paramount. Instead, a majority in the Verkhovna Rada passed laws which will be used in propaganda against Ukraine with some of that propaganda, unfortunately, being difficult to refute. | detail

Obama’s words about the death camps – much more than a “slip of the tongue”

Over the last few days, dramatic headlines such as “Ivan the Terrible” recognized by former death camp inmate”, an 87-year-old resident of Ryazan have appeared in the Russian media.

Unqualified evil and politics

Ask people in any former Soviet republic whether the Holocaust was unqualified evil, few will say no. So why don’t they ask? Why with depressing regularity do we hear the same shouting about “a revival of Nazism”, along with appalling distortions of the truth? | detail
