Chronicles of Malorossia: Donetsk offers an alternative scenario of the future

Source By Arina Tsukanova After the first condemnations of the Donetsk initiative to create a new state of Malorossia (Little Russia) sounded from Ukraine, Kiev, Brussels, Berlin and Paris, it is worthwhile to take a closer look at this idea: it is, in fact, a scenario for the creation of a unified country, an alternative to the Kiev’s one. Is it not what the Ukrainian authorities have been preaching for three and a half years, both at home and in the West? Is it not the format of a single country that the UN, the OSCE, the State Department, the European Committee, the European Parliament, the European Union, the European members of the «Norman format» support with such...

Let Moscow lie in ruins! - NBC published a video from a children's camp near Kiev

Source While the Russian Federation expresses its confidence in the brotherhood with the Ukrainian people, this people is cultivating hatred for it. Doing it, by the way, very thoroughly - cherishing hatred for Russia not only in itself, but also in future generations.  The NBC television channel has published a scary movie which was made in a children's militarized camp near Kiev. The pastime of children includes complex studying: not only the military training of adolescents and children, but also the ideological preparation. The camp is supervised by militants of the «Azov» Nazi group. This sure explains a lot and gives reason to again mention the marginals. However, we should not forget that children are not sent to the «marginals» forcibly, but at the request of their parents. What levels out the notorious marginalism. In addition, the children themselves are happy to be in this place.  ‘It was my decision, since last year I have wanted to come here, and now, my...

Ukraine In NATO? America Should Reject A Bad Idea That Only Grows Worse With Age
