Ethnocide of Russians in Ukraine

Source By Denis Grigoryuk The Rada has adopted a law prohibiting teaching in Russian.  The breakthrough of the odious Georgian politician into the territory of Ukraine has completely eclipsed the entire information space. Undoubtedly, the event is important for the country and every step of the former Odessa governor is discussed with pomp, cries and hysteria at both sides (supporters and opponents of Saakashvili). Against the background of the hype surrounding the conquest of the Ukrainian border by Mikho, the news about the law on education adopted by the Ukrainian parliament, has remained completely unnoticed.

For the U.S., Arming Ukraine Could Be a Deadly Mistake

Source By Michael Kofman On his visit to Ukraine this week, the American defense secretary, Jim Mattis, confirmed that he favors providing “defensive weapons” to the former Soviet republic.
