   WHAT THE ARREST OF THE RUSSIAN INTEL TOP CYBER-CRIME EXPERT HAS TO DO WITH AMERICAN ELECTIONS

Until now, U.S. authorities have appeared to base their conviction that the Russian government directed hacker attacks against Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign on technical research alone. Reporting by The Bell reveals that Russian authorities believe four men betrayed their country by confirming the U.S. findings. Sergei Mikhailov was arrested one year ago, on Dec. 5, 2016. Officers of the agency’s internal security division seized him at his office and led him away with a sack over his head. Mikhailov is a black belt in karate and the officers feared that he might resist, explained one of the...

   IN UKRAINE IT’S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS, AND A LOT LESS LIKE RUSSIA

The weekend after Thanksgiving, shopping malls across Ukraine touted special Black Friday sales. Of course, Ukrainians don’t celebrate Thanksgiving (not yet, at least), so there was no post-holiday food hangover to slow down shoppers’ clip as they flooded the malls and shopping centers. Nevertheless, just like in the United States, the Ukrainian holiday season kicked into full gear that weekend. On the streets and storefronts in the capital city of Kyiv, the Christmas trees, lights, and decorations are up. “The Nutcracker” ballet is back on the playbill at the National Opera of Ukraine. And in the coffee shops and cafes, the amount of Christmas music—including...

We Canadians of Ukrainian descent, are so very fortunate to live in a free country that is the envy of the world: Canada.

   THE EXPLAINABLE RISE OF CZECH FAKE NEWS

Last year, a 52-year-old Czech IT specialist called Radek Koten shared an inflammatory post from a pro-Russian website which attacked mandatory vaccinations. “Cancerous enzymes” had been found in vaccine compounds, according to the article he shared, and the doctors who made the discovery had all been “murdered.” Over the past year, he has also decorated his Facebook wall with claims that the 9/11 attacks were a CIA plot and that the United States wants to liquidate the Slavic race. If Koten was just another Czech citizen with a penchant for conspiracy theories from pro-Kremlin sites, his posts would not have attracted much notice. But he has vaulted to national prominence in the last few months, after...

   MOSCOW INTENSIFIES ITS EFFORTS TO USE RUSSIAN EMIGRES TO PROMOTE KREMLIN POLICIES

“At least in part because the Bolsheviks came out of emigration to take power, Moscow has long viewed emigres as far more important than do most other governments, treating them as groups to be subverted, communities from which to recruit active agents, and tools to influence the countries in which they live,” Dmitry Khmelnitsky says. “In the last two decades,” the Moscow analyst continues, “the Russian special services have stepped up their efforts to make use of Russian emigres because there are so many more of them than there were earlier, the new emigres are not as anti-Moscow as were earlier waves, and the...

   HOW MUCH IS TRUMP WORTH? MUELLER'S DEUTSCHE BANK SUBPOENA COULD SOLVE THE MYSTERY

Robert Mueller’s reported request to Deutsche Bank for information on Donald Trump’s loans indicates the special counsel has now crossed a “red line” the president identified months ago, and could ultimately solve the mystery of how much Trump is really worth. The accounts in at least five separate news articles suggest, for the first time, that the prosecutor is looking into whether Russian money laundering fostered the Trump Organization’s growth and development after Donald Trump’s six bankruptcies rendered him radioactive to American banks. Deutsche Bank stepped in and helped Trump, at a time when its Moscow office had become a...

   OPERATIVE OFFERED TRUMP CAMPAIGN ‘KREMLIN CONNECTION’ USING N.R.A. TIES

A conservative operative trumpeting his close ties to the National Rifle Association and Russia told a Trump campaign adviser last year that he could arrange a back-channel meeting between Donald J. Trump and Vladimir V. Putin, the Russian president, according to an email sent to the Trump campaign. A May 2016 email to the campaign adviser, Rick Dearborn, bore the subject line “Kremlin Connection.” In it, the N.R.A. member said he wanted the advice of Mr. Dearborn and Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama, then a foreign policy adviser to Mr. Trump and Mr. Dearborn’s longtime boss, about how to proceed in connecting the two leaders. Russia, he wrote, was “quietly but...
