   MISREPRESENTATIONS, QUESTIONABLE CREDENTIALS, MALAPROPISMS, GENERALIZATIONS AND HALF-TRUTHS

The OUN was a national liberation movement. At its first congress in 1929 it did not adopt any resolution regarding the form of government of a future state. When the OUN began to address the issue of a form of government in 1940, it issued a manifesto which included specific provisions guaranteeing the rights of individuals to work and pursue happiness, protecting women and children, specifically “for the dignity and...

   MOSCOW OUTLET DESCRIBES HOW RUSSIA SHOULD BREAK UP EACH OF THE BALTIC COUNTRIES

Arguing that the Estonians, Latvians and Lithuanians are more russophobic than any other nation in the world, the Russian propaganda site, SputnikPogrom, outlines how Moscow must work to split up the three countries into smaller units dominated by ethnic and linguistic minorities to put them on course for reabsorption into a Russian empire. The 3500-word unsigned article entitled...

   THE RUSSIAN LAUNDROMAT EXPOSED

Three years after the “Laundromat” was exposed as a criminal financial vehicle to move vast sums of money out of Russia, journalists now know how the complex scheme worked – including who ended up with the $20.8 billion and how, despite warnings, banks failed for years to shut it down. The Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) broke the story of the Laundromat in 2014, but recently the reporters from OCCRP and Novaya Gazeta in Moscow obtained a...

   RUSSIA WALKS THE LINE BETWEEN WAR AND PEACE IN THE BALTICS

Russian offensive cyber capabilities are as sophisticated as those of other major cyber powers, such as the United States and China, and they likely exceed Baltic states’ ability to defend critical infrastructures. A successful large-scale cyberattack during peace time, or prior to or in concert with a conventional attack – which could disrupt interdependent financial systems or communications or electricity networks, or affect fuel and water supplies – would likely trigger huge economic loss or even chaos. Among the...

   BURYING LENIN NOW WOULD UNACCEPTABLY PROMOTE DE-RUSSIFICATION, MOSCOW PATRIARCHATE SAYS

For decades, many thoughtful observers have argued that “the cult of Lenin is a marker of Russian imperialism and that monuments and busts of Ilich play exactly the same role as did busts of the emperor in the Roman Empire” and that that reality explains Russian anger about taking down Lenin statues abroad, according to Yevgeny Ikhlov. But one could hardly expect that a leading prop of the Russian regime would make this argument baldly and in public. However, that has now happened, and the statement an official of...

   PRIVATE MILITARY COMPANIES FORMING VANGUARD OF RUSSIAN FOREIGN OPERATIONS

The massive Russian military involvement in Syria in support of President Bashar al-Assad may be the first move to reestablish Moscow’s influence over the entire Middle East (see EDM, March 8). Russia has also been seeking contacts in conflict-ridden Libya, which still lacks an effective national government following the fall of long-time dictator Muammar Qaddafi, in 2011. Vladimir Putin, who in 2011 was temporarily Russian prime minister, publicly criticized the...

   IT’S TIME FOR TRUDEAU TO GET SERIOUS ABOUT PUTIN AND UKRAINE

This Saturday, March 18, marks the third anniversary of Russia’s illegal theft of Crimea from Ukraine. Though this conflict has receded from the headlines, Ukrainians are still fighting for the future of their country and putting their lives on the line to secure the freedoms we are so privileged to enjoy in Canada. And they still need our help. Under our previous Conservative government, Canada led. It was former Prime Minister Harper who told Vladimir Putin to his face that he needed to “get out of Ukraine” and spearheaded efforts to remove Russia from the G8. And we matched our words with...

   RUSSIA NOW SAYS IT LIED ABOUT YANUKOVYCH LETTER USED AS PRETEXT TO SEND TROOPS TO UKRAINE

It is amazing what the death of a Russian UN ambassador can achieve. Russian President Vladimir Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov is now claiming that the Kremlin never received a letter from ex-Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, asking Russia to send in troops to Ukraine. The Russian Prosecutor General recently issued a similar denial. So what precisely did the now deceased Vitaly Churkin wave about at the United Nations, claiming that it had been received on March 1, 2014, and why did Russian President Vladimir Putin himself speak of such an...

   HOW RUSSIA AND WIKILEAKS BECAME ALLIES AGAINST THE WEST

Russia was being accused by U.S. intelligence of hacking the 2016 presidential election in support of Donald Trump. Documents stolen in the hack, agencies allege, were given to WikiLeaks for public release. Many Trump opponents blamed Russia for his victory. And Washington hummed with speculation about illicit meetings between Trump administration officials and the Russian ambassador. Then, on March 7, WikiLeaks released “Vault 7,” a trove of documents detailing CIA surveillance and cyber warfare capabilities. Among its...

   THE ROAD TO A FREE EUROPE GOES THROUGH MOSCOW

When Angela Merkel meets with Donald Trump on Friday, she won’t just be representing Germany. She’ll be bringing all the hopes and anxieties of an anxious continent—one whose fears have been stoked by the fervor sweeping from Amsterdam to Rome, Paris to Berlin. It’s no exaggeration to say that this meeting between Trump and Merkel could set the tone for the very future of the Western Alliance. For a specter is haunting Europe—the specter of populist nationalism. Ideologically indeterminate, it manifests across the...

   SIX IMMEDIATE STEPS TO STOP PUTIN’S AGGRESSION

Security experts who follow the West’s responses to Russia’s meddling in its internal affairs—through cyber hacks, massive disinformation, corruption of Western leaders, and espionage—have good reason to be disappointed. With a few exceptions in the Baltic and Scandinavian countries, and recently in the Czech Republic, very few real counter-measures have been put into practice. Despite almost every Western intelligence agency urgently warning about the Russian threat, only a few Western leaders are...
