Short but important | Colonel Cassad

Despite the fact that a considerable part of sectors of the front, where an armistice was concluded, the intensity of fighting has fallen sharply, though the expected recriminations sides of violating the truce followed. Saudi Arabia accused (who would doubt) Syria and Russia in that they violate the truce and threatened to “Plan B” (read foreign intervention. “Russia accuses Turkey of violating the truce, as the jihadists are supported by the Turks attacked the Kurdish town of Tal Abyad and Kurds have a lot of sweat in the battle for the city, where, according to preliminary data for the day more than 100 people were killed in the fighting (is also noted that today after being hit in a police vehicle killed 1 and wounded two Turkish officers.) the US is said that they “watch” and “study”, but do not be surprised if tomorrow or the day after tomorrow in Washington break out a statement that Moscow had violated something.

The rise of Azov | Open Democracy

Strange it may seem, but Ukraine’s far right and Russia’s propaganda machine share a common fantasy: a radical right-wing coup in Kyiv. Just as the Ukrainian right has been making moves in domestic politics over the past year, a coup scenario in the country’s capital would be precisely the escalation Russia needs to win the war in the east.

If we do see regime change in Ukraine, then the Azov volunteer battalion is a likely candidate to take charge of this new “junta”. Formed from far-right groups as separatist conflict broke out in 2014, Azov was initially created as a special police battalion, and quickly won a reputation for defending the city of Mariupol in south-eastern Ukraine. It is now a regiment within Ukraine’s National Guard.

The Russian Tom Clancy Is on the Front Lines for Real | The New Yorker

In early 2014, after Russia annexed Crimea, pro-Russia separatists in the north of Ukraine, with Russian President Vladimir Putin’s backing, seized parts of the border area near Donetsk. After those rebels were blamed for shooting down a Malaysian passenger jet flying over eastern Ukraine that summer, President Obama convinced Europe to impose economic sanctions, which have devastated the Russian economy. Putin also withdrew many of the Russian military advisers, allowing local fighters to assume high-ranking positions in the leadership.

One of those local fighters, Fyodor Berezin, became the deputy defense minister of what the rebels call the Donetsk People’s Republic, and now trains new recruits in tank artillery. Berezin is an unlikely leader in any war: before all this took place, he was known as a sci-fi novelist in the genre of “historical fantasy.” Readers may be familiar with the American version of this style of writing, which includes books about, for instance, how the outcome of the Civil War might have changed if Robert E. Lee had machine guns. Berezin’s novels typically involve heroic struggles between an imaginary U.S.S.R. spreading triumphant Communism all over the world while kicking around a weakened and marginalized U.S.A.

“We are at a new impasse” | Alexander Dugin

It’s necessary to recognize a simple truth: they won’t leave us alone, and it its best to recognize this immediately. History is always a choice, often a choice in the face of death. The average person runs away from this and tries to barricade himself from problems, but if a government behaves like a layman, then this government is transitory. History begins when the top of the vertical power takes an existential – historic – decision, and this means looking death straight in the face.
