14 May 2014     Top 5 Myths About U.S. Meddling in Ukraine

One of the men, the first to speak, demanded to know whose side they were on, meaning were they for Russia, or Ukraine?  Instinctively they knew that there'd be little to gain from expressing their pro-Ukrainian allegiance so Roman, 22, told them simply: "We're on the side of peace." — Oliver Carroll

Apologies for Vladimir

24 Mar 2014     Apologies for Vladimir

Our new Kremlinogists now tell us that Mr. Putin's gambits need to be understood in the context of Russia's historic foreign policy objectives.  True up to a point.  But Mr. Putin is also pursuing his own interests as ringleader in a corrupt oligarchy sitting on the economic time bomb that is a commodities-based economy. — Bret Stephens

05 Mar 2014     Open letter of Ukrainian Jews to Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin

Anders Aslund

05 Mar 2014     Why Putin Is Likely To Lose His War Over Crimea

After occupying the Crimean parliament, the Russian troops appointed a representative of a marginal pro-Russian party that got 4 percent of the vote in the last regional elections to the post of "prime minister."  This appointee, Sergei Aksyonov, is better known under his criminal nickname "Goblin," which he earned as an alleged member of an organized crime group in the 1990s.  The Kremlin needed to turn to such an insignificant and dubious figure, because there was no substantial separatist movement in Crimea, no inter-ethnic violence and no discrimination against Russians or the Russian language in Ukraine. — Anders Aslund

08 Feb 2014     Lubomyr Prytulak: The Sad Case of Dmytro Bulatov

The Opposition must consider that to go along with what may seem like a little white lie is to take a step toward adopting Cheka tactics, which would give the Ukrainian people reason to fear that their revolution will end the way George Orwell warns that revolutions can end — with the people looking from Oppositionist to Chekist and from Chekist to Oppositionist, and from Oppositionist to Chekist again, but no longer being able to tell which is which. — Lubomyr Prytulak
