Why does Donald Trump cover up Putin’s involvement in murder?

US presidential candidate Donald Trump has no problem promising to jail his rival and rejecting the court and DNA exoneration of young men he once wanted executed, but he carries the presumption of innocence to bizarre extremes when it comes to Russia’s President Vladimir Putin. | detail

Russia’s FSB remove posters asking about abducted Crimean Tatar activist Ervin Ibragimov

“Those who give the command to abduct people should look their own mother in the eye and ask her what it means to lose a child”. Lilia Budzhurova’s words will doubtless not be heard by those in Moscow who bear responsibility for the lawlessness unleashed since Russia’s invasion and annexation of Crimea | detail

10 Years without Anna Politkovskaya

Anna Politkovskaya’s voice would certainly have been heard, as was Boris Nemtsov’s, over Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. It is sorely needed now also in occupied Crimea, with Russia increasingly using the same methods that it has applied for so long in Chechnya and Ingushetia | detail

Destructions in Donbas. Scale, attempts at reconstruction and perspectives for redress for victims

In March 2014, Eastern regions of Ukraine became an arena of the Russian secret services’ "Russian Spring" plan, aiming to pull a large part of Ukrainian territories out of Ukrainian jurisdiction. These actions were supported by a wide information campaign in the Russian Federation. As a result of resistance from the Ukrainian state and its society, the plan was disrupted, but on the territory of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics (DNR and LNR) were created, and the confrontation escalated into an armed conflict. | detail

While hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets in major cities across Western Europe and the United States to protest the American invasion of Iraq and, more recently, the invasion by America’s ally Israel of the Gaza Strip in 2014, Russia’s wars of choice in Syria and Ukraine have failed to excite a single public demonstration of any significance anywhere in the Western world | detail
