Anti-govt protesters seize Ukrainian APCs, army units ‘switch sides’ (VIDEO)

16 April 2014 – Strategic Culture Foundation

Kiev’s military faced off with protesters in east Ukraine on Wednesday to sort out their differences…and found none. Soldiers appeared reluctant to go into battle against anti-government activists.

When Ukrainian Armored Personnel Carriers (APCs) entered downtown Kramatorsk as part of Kiev’s military operation against anti-government protesters in the east of the country, they were stopped in their tracks, surrounded by crowds of local residents.

Kiev Declares War on South-East Ukraine By Boris Novoseltsev

16 April 2014 – Strategic Culture Foundation

The civil disobedience movement in the Ukraine’s South East spreads around growing into a people’s uprising.

The industrial region is actually the major contributor to the country’s budget. At that, during the 22 years of Ukraine’s existence as an independent state it has not acquired any role in the political life of the country worth of its economic potential or the size of population. Any attempts of South-Eastern Ukraine to offer state structure reforms or put forward the idea of making Russian an official language have been immediately and flatly rejected by Kiev.

The Strangelove effect – or how we are hoodwinked into accepting a new world war By John Pilger

20 April 2014 — John Pilger

I watched Dr. Strangelove the other day. I have seen it perhaps a dozen times; it makes sense of senseless news. When Major T.J. ‘King’ Kong goes “toe to toe with the Rooskies” and flies his rogue B52 nuclear bomber to a target in Russia, it’s left to General ‘Buck’ Turgidson to reassure the President. Strike first, says the general, and “you got no more than 10 to 20 million killed, tops.”

The International Monetary Fund Might Not Live to See Its Anniversary

19.04.2014 | 10:53 | Valentin KATASONOV

The latest meeting of the ministers of finance and central bank governors of the G20 countries took place April 10-11, 2014 in Washington. A key issue was the reform of the International Monetary Fund (IMF)… Through their inaction on the issue of reforming the IMF, the United States first and foremost is discrediting itself. And second, the Fund. Third, the G20. The Fund’s reputation is plummeting especially fast considering that in recent years China has been giving “third world” countries loans similar in size to those offered by the IMF and the IBRD. But Beijing, unlike the IMF, does not set political conditions in the spirit of the Washington Consensus… Continue reading this...

The New York Times’ propaganda campaign against Russia over Ukraine By Alex Lantier

17 April 2014 — WSWS

The denunciations of Russia published in yesterday’s New York Times, as the armed forces of the US and European-backed Kiev regime assaulted protesters in eastern Ukraine, are vile propaganda. The newspaper whitewashes the social and political character of the new Ukrainian government, installed in a fascist-led putsch in February, and blames on Moscow the violence that has been orchestrated in Washington and Berlin.
