Maybe someone could post a link?

But the same old drivel – Russia wants to protect Russian speakers in the SE of Ukraine.

My family here in the SE are all Russian speakers but don’t want Putin’s ‘protection’ - I wonder why that would be

Jehovah's Witness To Go On Trial In Russia On Extremism Charges

"Human Rights Watch (HRW) is calling on Russian authorities to drop the charges against a Jehovah’s Witness adherent who is set to go on trial this week, and to put an end to their "ruthless persecution" of the religious group.

On April 3, a criminal court in the central Russian city of Oryol is to begin the trial of Dennis Christensen, a 46-year old Danish citizen who has been in pretrial custody for more than 10 months.

If convicted on charges of "organizing activities of a religious organization that has been declared extremist," the accused faces up to 10 years in prison...

@jaycey
check Ukranian Cyber Alliance and the Surkov leaks. . .
There are copies of emails to Inal Ardzinba, Surkov's !st Deputy, and C P leader offering to fund cyberops including hacking emails for $100-300 a time. Prices to target personal data of target people in Kharkiv, up to 130k. Lots more where that came from, all previously vehemently denied by the Kremlin.

The only article that comes up here is from Reuters dated Nov 3rd 2016.

Thanks anyway Kanga.

PS Just goes to show that if the Kremlin denies anything then we know it to be true

Re: Has Russia gone Rogue?


.............................The Godfather

"The Road to Unfreedom - with the end of the Cold War, the victory of liberal democracy seemed final. Observers declared the end of history, confident in a peaceful, globalized future. This faith was misplaced. Authoritarianism returned to Russia, as Putin found fascist ideas that could be used to justify rule by the wealthy. In the 2010s, it has spread from east to west, aided by Russian warfare in Ukraine and cyberwar in Europe and the United States.

Russia found allies among nationalists, oligarchs, and radicals everywhere, and its drive to dissolve Western institutions, states, and values found resonance within the West itself. The rise of populism, the British vote against the EU, and the election of Donald Trump were all Russian goals, but their achievement reveals the vulnerability of Western societies.

In this forceful and unsparing work of contemporary history, based on vast research as well as personal reporting, Snyder goes beyond the headlines to expose the true nature of the threat to democracy and law. To understand the challenge is to see, and perhaps renew, the fundamental political virtues offered by tradition and demanded by the future. By revealing the stark choices before us–between equality or oligarchy, individuality or totality, truth and falsehood–Snyder restores our understanding of the basis of our way of life, offering a way forward in a time of terrible uncertainty.

Re: Has Russia gone Rogue?

Why Expelling Russian Diplomats Isn't Enough

"So far, twenty-eight nations have sent home more than 140 Russian diplomats and spies in a coordinated response to the Russian nerve agent assassination attempt in Salisbury, England. Symbolically, this unprecedented expulsion of Russian officials constitutes an important show of unity, but its practical impact in terms of hindering Russian subversion operations is limited. With the exception of the United States and Britain, which expelled sixty and twenty-three Russians respectively, most countries expelled four individuals or fewer—an insufficient number to deliver a meaningful hit to Russian spy networks.

Meanwhile, Putin’s Russia continues ravaging Ukraine, where more than 10,000 Ukrainians have died defending their country since 2014. It is still supporting or even orchestrating massive atrocities in Syria, and it is behind increasingly audacious cyber and disinformation attacks globally.

Welcome to Cold War 2.0: we are in it, and it’s time to fight back. Russia’s use of a military-grade chemical weapon in a NATO country for the first time is the Kremlin’s latest benchmark. While Western military deterrence has so far stopped Russia from physically attacking NATO countries, allied deterrence in the non-kinetic sphere is failing spectacularly.

Putin is not afraid to continue targeting the West with ever more aggressive tools and tactics, hacking elections and buying off Western politicians and public figures. There is only one reason why Russia can continue down this path: because the West has not issued proportionate punishment for any of these aggressive acts. History has repeatedly taught us that appeasement of dictators doesn’t work and that bullies must be stopped with force. If the Western response only involves the expulsion of a few diplomats and intelligence officers, Russia’s leadership will be affirmed in its view that the West lacks the political will to engage a forceful pushback.

There are five things Western democracies should do immediately to increase the costs of Russian subversion and pressure Putin to reevaluate his aggressive behavior…

Re: Has Russia gone Rogue?

Russia facing 100 years of isolation, says Putin aide

“A key figure behind Vladimir Putin’s two-decade rule over Russia has declared that the country is entering “100 years of solitude” after a final break with the West.

Vladislav Surkov, one of Mr Putin’s longest-serving and most influential advisers, said that the consequences of the annexation of Crimea in 2014 were only now becoming apparent. “The event is the conclusion of Russia’s epic journey towards the West, the ending of numerous fruitless attempts to become part of western civilisation, to inter-marry with the ‘good family’ of European nations,” he wrote in a sweeping essay…
