Kremlin’s nightmare in Khreshchatyk

Source By Yulia Vityazeva The Russians have long since understood everything. For example, the fact that «strong and independent» Ukraine has, in fact, turned out to be a common kept woman who has replaced one «sponsor» with another. However, the replacement has not turned out very successful.  The reason for this, if nothing else, is that Russia which, according to legends, offended, infringed, oppressed, festered and dreamed of enslaving Ukraine, behaved somewhat strange for the «aggressor». It gave money and cooperated (sometimes, to its own detriment) without demanding in exchange to lift a moratorium on the sale of agricultural land, raise the retirement age, cut down forests...

US totalitarian propaganda mouthpiece: "Ukraine has no future»

Source By Yuri Podolyuka What should Ukrainians prepare for on the 26th anniversary of their "Independence"? This is written by a mouthpiece of totalitarian propaganda, the online edition of pro-American grantees "Ukrainian Truth". Their forecast today is so different from the forecast of three years ago. But it wasn’t what made me most interested in it. In fact, the US, through its edition, is openly promoting the idea of neocolonialism in Ukraine ... For reference: The "Ukrainian Truth" is a landmark information resource for Ukraine. Founded in the early 2000s, whether by Alyona Pritula or Georgy Gongadze, it has always been a mouthpiece of American grantees. During the first Maidan, along with Poroshenko's "Channel 5», it became the main information platform for protests. Then, for ten years, it was the "Ukrainian Truth" that became the forge of cadres for pro-American journalism in Ukraine. The article posted by the source is quite long and it shows all the...

Source The Ukrainian hacker group, CyberBerkut, has published materials of the investigation, in which a network of biological laboratories of American special services is discovered in Ukraine.  ‘The CyberBerkut continues to monitor the secret activities of US special services and non-governmental organizations in Ukraine. Recently, in the Internet, there have been actively discussed outbreaks of diseases rare for our country. Many Ukrainians believe that the cause of their emergence is secret experiments with pathogenic microorganisms, conducted in American biological laboratories in different cities of the country,’ reports the CyberBerkut.  It is stated that since 2009, in the territory of Ukraine, 15 such objects have been created for American money. All of them were equipped allegedly ‘to reduce biological threats’.  However, since then, the hackers say, these threats have grown several times - in recent years, Ukraine has been shaken by epidemics of rare...

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. According to recent reports, this military aid would involve sending Javelin anti-tank guided missiles to Ukraine, which has been fighting Russian-backed separatists in the eastern Donbass region for more than three years. The Trump administration’s plan to arm Kiev is a serious political decision that could have far-reaching strategic consequences. The United States is walking into a proxy war with Moscow — one that it is unprepared to win. Notionally, helping Ukraine is admirable, but...

Ukraine’s TB problem is ticking time bomb for Europe

Source In the Ukrainian tourist destination of Odessa, a port on the Black Sea, holidaymakers mingle with internally displaced people from the country’s war-torn east, local Roma, students, and economic migrants from Central Asia and the Caucasus, Africa and Asia. Yet the air carries something less healthy than sea breezes: tuberculosis. Odessa has the highest rate of TB in Ukraine, with 110 cases per 100,000 people in 2016, and rising fast. Closely linked with migration, instability and poverty, controlling this airborne disease takes on additional urgency this year as Ukraine seeks to integrate into Europe thanks to a new visa-free regime. Part of a migration corridor from Central...
