Open Letter: Save the Council of Europe

The Kremlin, in association with its political friends, is trying to get rid of this sanction without in the least changing its policy. This would mean that the Council of Europe would give up its normative foundations. | детальніше

Russia launches Crimean reactors with Siemens gas turbines sold in scam to avoid EU sanctions

Russia has launched the first reactors of two thermal power stations built in occupied Crimea with Siemens gas turbines provided despite European Union sanctions.  The news comes 15 months after it became clear that the turbines had turned up in Crimea, and over three years after Siemens was first directly warned of the planned scam for bypassing sanctions. | детальніше

“Totally Orwellian” Russian ‘Anna Politkovskaya Prize’ for Ukrainian journalist accused of treason

Russia’s Union of Journalists has declared Kyrylo Vyshynsky, a Ukrainian journalist accused of treason for his propaganda support for Russia’s annexation of Crimea, its laureate for the ’Anna Politkovskaya Kamerton Award’, in a move condemned by one journalist as “plummeting the depths on a cosmic scale” | детальніше

Poland’s Government deals death blow to independent judiciary. Free elections the next target if EU doesn’t act now

The Supreme Court, headed by a strong critic of the government’s attack on the judiciary, is effectively the last bastion after systematic moves since 2015 to reign in all other judicial bodies and install loyal people in top posts | детальніше

With Trump on his side, Putin admits Russia staged the ‘referendum’ to annex Crimea

Vladimir Putin was clearly feeling emboldened by the coup that US President Trump gave him through the 16 July summit, and did not even bother to hide behind his customary subterfuge about Russia’s invasion and annexation of Crimea | детальніше

If Putin admitted Crimea is Ukraine, why would Trump recognize illegal Russian annexation?

The Kremlin’s assertion that Crimea will not be on the agenda during Vladimir Putin’s meeting with US President Donald Trump might be cheering given Trump’s apparent refusal to rule out ‘recognizing Crimea as Russian’, if it could be believed. It cannot, and not least because of the number of times Putin has said something quite different. | детальніше

Russia stages fake ‘Ukrainian people’s tribunal’ in Donbas

All of Ukraine’s leaders, including President Petro Poroshenko have just received ‘life sentences’ after an elaborate public ‘trial’ staged in the self-proclaimed and Russian-backed ‘Luhansk people’s republic’ [LPR].  The stunt, which public-sector workers were forced to attend, would not be worth a mention had it not been for the significant and very specific coverage it received on Russian state-controlled media. | детальніше

Putin’s Bridge to Nowhere

Despite the hoopla surrounding its “opening,” the bridge isn’t very useful as the roads leading up to it on both the Russian side and in Crimea won’t be ready until at least 2019. Ukraine’s Foreign Minister, Pavlo Klimkin, rightly tweeted: “Both ends of the bridge lead nowhere.” | детальніше

The Kremlin hires academics to deny Crimean Tatars their rights

Russia’s repressive measures against Crimean Tatars are probably not surprising since it is this main indigenous people of Crimea who most dangerously undermine Moscow’s excuses for invading and annexing Crimea | детальніше

Four years of Kremlin’s ‘Donbas republics’ and their far-right and left-wing friends

It is surely appropriate that the self-proclaimed ‘Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics’ [DPR, LPR] date their ‘statehood’ from a fake referendum that even Russia eventually decided not to recognize.  This is not the way the so-called ’11 May referendum’ is presented in the militant-controlled media and a new ‘history textbook’, and it is certainly not the impression that a small number of European politicians, usually from the far-right or extreme left, give when they appear for their all-expenses-paid visits, via Russia, to Donbas.   | детальніше

The day Russia lost Odesa and launched a lethal propaganda lie used to kill in Donbas

Those who find only humour in the mention by Donald Trump’s adviser of a ‘Bowling Green Massacre’ that never happened should think again. It is dangerously easy to then convince people it did happen, and there is nothing funny about stories of an invented ‘massacre’ used to send young men to die or to kill others. That is precisely what Russia launched exactly four years ago | детальніше

Russian tanks entering Ukraine that the OSCE is mandated to miss

Russia has spent four years denying responsibility for the tanks and huge arsenal of weapons provided to Kremlin-controlled militants in Donbas, and using OSCE observers to purportedly back this denial.  While this is not the observers’ fault, the vast expanse of border area physically beyond their scope, as well as the clamps placed on what they are mandated to observe, must surely place the sense of their mission in question.  | детальніше
