    Abstract This study analyzes revelations from the trial and investigation in Ukraine concerning the mass killing that took place in Kyiv on 20 February 2014. This Maidan massacre of protesters and police led to the overthrow of the Yanukovych government and ultimately to the Russian annexation of Crimea, the civil war and Russian military interventions in Donbas, and the Ukraine-Russia and West-Russia conflicts which Russia escalated by illegally invading Ukraine in 2022. The absolute majority of wounded Maidan protesters, nearly 100 prosecution and defense witnesses, synchronized videos, and medical and ballistic examinations by government experts pointed unequivocally to the fact...

    President Joe Biden mistakenly said Russian President Vladimir Putin is "clearly" losing the war in Iraq while answering questions from reporters at the White House. Biden was likely talking about Russia's war in Ukraine, saying Putin has been unsuccessful in the conflicts at home and abroad. "It's hard to tell, but he is clearly losing the war in Iraq, he's losing the war at home, and he has become a bit of a pariah around the world. And it's not just NATO. It's not just the European Union. It's Japan. It's, you know, 40 nations," Biden said. Biden was taking...

    Another Hunter Biden WhatsApp message was released by the GOP House Oversight Committee on Tuesday. In a WhatsApp exchange dated August 3, 2017, Hunter Biden told CEFC associate Gongwen Dong: “The Biden’s are the best I know at doing exactly what the Chairman wants from this [partnership].” The “Chairman” is Ye Jianming, a Chinese billionaire tied to a CCP-intelligence gathering agency. Ye Jianming is presumed dead after he ‘disappeared.’ The next day one of Hunter Biden’s shell companies, OWASCO PC, received $100,000 from CEFC, a CCP affiliated energy company.

    Two IRS whistleblowers leveled serious allegations about Hunter Biden and the government’s investigation of the troubled first son, according to transcripts of testimony released this week. The whistleblowers, IRS supervisory criminal investigator Gary Shapley and a second unnamed IRS investigator, provided evidence to the House Ways and Means Committee that top Justice Department officials stonewalled an investigation into Hunter Biden’s taxes and foreign business ventures. They also call into question President Biden’s repeated denials that he has no knowledge of his son’s business dealings. Here are 16 of the biggest revelations from transcripts of their interviews: Hunter linked dad to...

    The United States will provide Kyiv with a new military package worth up to $500 million, the Pentagon said on Tuesday, in a show of support for Ukraine's fight against Russia as Moscow deals with the aftermath of a mutiny by mercenary fighters. The package will include ground vehicles including Bradley fighting vehicles and Stryker armored personnel carriers, and munitions for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems, according to a statement from the Pentagon. The package "includes key capabilities to support Ukraine's counteroffensive operations, strengthen its air defenses ... and other equipment to help Ukraine push back on Russia's war of...
  • Dems, Media Prove Anew Their ‘Flexibility’ on Russia

    06/26/2023 6:41:15 PM PDT · by bitt · 4 replies ^ | 6/26/2023 | jack cashill
    Lacking either a moral compass or a consistent foreign policy, Democrats and their fellow travelers in the media have been guided in recent years by what they call “Rahm’s Rule” -- in brief, “never let a serious crisis go to waste.” Adopting that rule came naturally to President Barack Obama. In a March 2012 meeting with outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in Korea, a hot mic picked up Obama telling Medvedev, “It’s important for him to give me space. This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.” The “him,” of course was Putin. Said Medvedev, “I...

    The armed uprising against Russia’s military command was called off just as quickly as it first began, but the fate of Yevgeny Prigozhin—the leader of the Wagner mercenary group who led the mutiny and incurred the enmity of Russian President Vladimir Putin—is now uncertain. On Saturday, Prigozhin reportedly agreed to leave Russia for an “early retirement” in Belarus after withdrawing his troops from marching on Moscow in a deal mediated by the neighboring country’s autocratic leader, Aleksandr Lukashenko, a close ally of Putin’s. “Realizing all the responsibility for the fact that Russian blood will be shed from one side, we...

    Wagner Group chief Yevgeny Prigozhin broke his silence Monday to claim his attempted coup against Russia was nothing more than a protest as some top Kremlin officials plotted to nix his mercenary army. Prigozhin, who has reportedly accepted a deal to be exiled to Belarus to avoid criminal charges, defended his short-lived weekend march to Moscow as a necessity after 30 of his troops were allegedly killed by Russian fighters “We started our march because of an injustice,” Prigozhin said in the 11-minute audio recording. “We went to demonstrate our protest and not to overthrow power in the country.” As...

    President Biden addressed the Wagner Group's revolt against Russian President Vladimir Putin's regime for the first time on Monday, saying the top priority for the U.S. and NATO was to establish that they had "nothing to do with it.

    Vladimir Putin vowed to hunt down the leaders of an armed mutiny which threatened to topple his regime as the Russian dictator broke cover for the first time since the chaos engulfing his country. In a short pre-recorded TV address to the nation, the warmonger denounced the Yevgeny Prigozhin's attempted Wagner mutineers as 'criminals' and warned he would bring them to 'justice'. -snip- Putin made no mention of Prigozhin, who is believed to have fled to Belarus after agreeing to stand down his march on Moscow after negotiating a deal with Moscow brokered by Belarusian strongman Alexander Lukashenko.

    Since the fall of the Soviet Union, two doomsday scenarios have come to capture the imagination of the West. One is that, thanks to climate change, our planet will explode into a retributive blaze reminiscent of the Book of Revelation. The other is that we are on the cusp of inventing an artificial intelligence that will opt to destroy humanity after performing some impenetrable cost-benefit calculation.Our attitude to the threat posed by Vladimir Putin’s Russia, by contrast, borders on the flippant. It is striking that the Wagner Group’s abortive coup was greeted with neither trepidation nor a sober assessment of...

    Wagner chief Yevgeny Prigozhin allegedly tried to call Putin en route to Moscow during his mutiny after 'realising he had gone too far' and that he did not have the support of the Russian army. At around mid-day on June 24, while Wagner soldiers were on their way to Moscow from Rostov-on-Don, Prigozhin allegedly attempted to contact the Kremlin directly. He 'tried to call Putin, but the president didn't want to speak with him', according to sources close to the Kremlin who spoke to media outlet Meduza. These sources also believe that Prigozhin likely realised he had 'gone too far'...
