   “SAME GOALS, NEW METHODS - SCENARIOS TO DESTABILIZE UKRAINE FROM WITHIN”

Ever since Ukraine restored independence, Russia has not ceased in attempting to re-impose itself on our country. This is due to several reasons. The first reason is the illusory pain of a dying mighty empire, an imperial myth that has been cultivated for centuries. It is understood by theRussian establishment that the empire is incomplete without Ukraine. Russians believe that our territory that gave birth to theKyivanRusis an integral part of Russia. The second reason is geopolitical. The...

   VLADIMIR PUTIN’S POLITICAL MEDDLING REVIVES OLD KGB TACTICS

Last month, former CIA Director Michael Hayden said that, during the 2016 election, the Kremlin had pulled off a “covert influence campaign” that “was probably the most successful in recorded history.” It has become accepted wisdom that Russia’s interference in the presidential campaign represents a fundamentally new sort of intrusion into a modern democracy’s inner workings. But the Kremlin’s efforts—designed to help elect Donald Trump, according to...

   ANTI-SEMITISM ON THE RISE IN RUSSIA AND MOSCOW SENDS THE WRONG MESSAGE ABOUT THIS TREND

Given the rise in xenophobia in Russian society following Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine and his increasingly repressive authoritarianism at home, many have pointed to the danger that anti-Semitism, one of the ugliest plagues of Russian history, is making a comeback. Russian officials and commentators have proudly and up to a point accurately noted that what anti-Semitism there currently is in Putin’s Russia is incomparably less than there was...

   FAKE NEWS, FAKE UKRAINIANS

Harry van Bommel, a left-wing member of the Dutch Parliament, had persuasive allies in convincing voters that they should reject a trade pact with Ukraine — his special “Ukrainian team,” a gleefully contrarian group of émigrés whose sympathies lay with Russia. They attended public meetings, appeared on television and used social media to denounce Ukraine’s pro-Western government as a bloodthirsty kleptocracy, unworthy of Dutch support. As Mr. Van Bommel recalled, it “was very handy to show that not all Ukrainians were in favor.” Handy but also misleading: The most...

   CONTEMPLATING THE MEANS BY WHICH UKRAINE CAN WITHSTAND ‘INFO WAR/HISTORY WAR’ ASSAULTS

What Moscow is trying to accomplish through its disinformation offensive and history war against Ukraine? What Ukraine can do in response to better protect itself? Regarding Russia’s broader war against the West, let me refer to my recent co-authored book published by the Jamestown Foundation, entitled Eurasian Disunion: Russia’s Vulnerable Flanks. Regarding Ukraine, Moscow’s Disinformation Objectives are...

   WOMEN HELD UP HALF THE SKY IN UKRAINE

In China, women are poetically referred to as “half the sky.” During the most dangerous hours of Ukraine’s Revolution of Dignity, when tanks and water cannons and snipers were trained on protesters, roughly half of the Ukrainian activists were females of all ages. Now, the new film “Women of Maidan” beautifully portrays the critical role that females have played and continue to play in the Ukrainian struggle for democracy and freedom...

   THE TIMELINE OF TRUMP'S TIES WITH RUSSIA LINES UP WITH ALLEGATIONS OF CONSPIRACY AND MISCONDUCT

The timeline of claims made in an unsubstantiated dossier presented by top US intelligence officials to President Donald Trump and senior lawmakers last month has increased scrutiny of events that unfolded in the final months of the Trump campaign. The dossier alleges serious misconduct and conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia's government. The White House has dismissed the dossier as fiction, and some of the facts and assertions it includes have indeed been proven wrong...

   DONALD TRUMP SEEKS A GRAND BARGAIN WITH VLADIMIR PUTIN

George W. Bush looked into Vladimir Putin’s eyes and thought he saw his soul. He was wrong. Barack Obama attempted to “reset” relations with Russia, but by the end of his term in office Russia had annexed Crimea, stirred up conflict elsewhere in Ukraine and filled the power vacuum that Mr. Obama had left in Syria. Donald Trump appears to want to go much further and forge an entirely new strategic alignment with Russia. Can he succeed, or will he be the third American president in a row to...

   EUROPE’S FAR-RIGHT ENJOYS BACKING FROM RUSSIA’S PUTIN

While U.S. intelligence agencies investigate claims that Russia secretly hacked emails to help tip last year's elections in favor of Donald Trump, Russia's push to bolster far-right populist politicians in Europe has been far more blatant. Under President Vladimir Putin, Russia is working to empower Europe's far-right and Eurosceptic parties with offers of cooperation, loans, political cover and propaganda. Such love has not gone unrequited: European populists are answering back with fulsome praise for Russia, its foreign policy and its strongman leader. The love affair comes as...

   RUSSIAN FORCES USING HAMAS-STYLE TERRORIST TACTICS IN UKRAINE, PORTNIKOV SAYS

Russian forces in Ukraine are now using one of the most beloved tactics of terrorist groups like the Palestinian Hamas organization, using civilians as human shields behind which they fire on their opponents in order to prevent their opponents from responding with attacks, according to Vitaly Portnikov. Now Putin’s forces are using the Hamas tactic of “a living shield,” but no one should be surprised because in large measure, the originators of this tactic were from Moscow rather...
