There will undoubtedly be comment in the western Mainstream Media about Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin «betraying» his would-be French and British «allies», about «stabbing Poland in the back», «colluding» with Adolf Hitler, and so on…

Battle for Europe

21.08.2015 | 00:00 | Vladimir NESTEROV

Late last week the Greek Parliament bowed to Berlin’s will and voted to support a package of austerity reforms. This step will come at a steep political price, as it will deepen the split in the ruling SYRIZA party. According to the British newspaper The Guardian, Panagiotis Lafazanis, the leader of the party’s Left Platform and former energy minister, has pledged to «smash the eurozone dictatorship», and Zoe Konstantopoulou, the speaker of the Hellenic Parliament, has stated that she is «not going to support Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras anymore»…

George Soros’s Fakery

19.08.2015 | 17:08 | Eric ZUESSE

George Soros pretends to be a progressive, but he invests in and finances nazis. That’s not “Nazis” as in National Socialist Party of Germany, which was outlawed after WW II, and whose racist obsession was against Jews. Instead, it’s “nazis” as in any racist fascist ideology (any ideology of racist fascism, instead of a political Party), in any country, against any  ethnic group. But George Soros happens to support only nazis (racist fascists) whose passionate hatred is specifically against Russians. His entire biography in public life is that.

John Kerry – Inspirer of Cuban Opposition

17.08.2015 | 00:08 | Nil NIKANDROV

The official ceremony opening the U.S. Embassy in Havana took place on August 14. US State Secretary John Kerry attended the event. He was in spotlight that day. It could not have been otherwise. In recent years the State Department led by Secretary Kerry has achieved little to be proud of regarding its Latin America’s policy. Now a promising diplomatic breakthrough is looming as the relations with Cuba have been restored at the embassy level. In January 1961 the US flag was lowered to be taken away from Havana by US diplomats after then President Dwight Eisenhower took a decision to break the relations with the revolutionary Cuba. Now the Stars and Stripes moved up the flagpole again accompanied by the sound of US national anthem…
