US wants to spend $38mn raising a generation of Euro-Atlantic Ukrainians, but it has to fight Ukraine to do it

Taking Ukraine out of Russia’s orbit and into the Western fold is a goal worth paying a lot for. Victoria Nuland mentioned the $5 billion price tag before the 2014 Maidan coup, so what’s a few more million? One of the latest programs to gently steer Ukraine was rolled out by USAID last week and […]

NATO Wants to Become the Atlantic-Pacific Alliance, by Thierry Meyssan

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg addressed the Lowy Institute in Sydney on August 7, 2019.

Media linking NHS leak to Russia is absurd, but using the Atlantic Council & Ben Nimmo as the source is journalistic malpractice

We have reached a point in time when no Western political scandal would be complete without a nefarious Russian angle. So naturally, when Jeremy Corbyn claimed last week that a 451-page leaked dossier proved Boris Johnson was willing to put the public health service “up for sale” during trade talks with the Trump administration, it […]
