What Does Crimea Mean To Russia?

From Voltaire Network
By Oriental Review

On March 18, 2014, Russian President Vladimir Putin made a historic speech about the reunification of Crimea and Russia. A referendum held in Crimea two days before in full compliance with standard democratic procedures and the rules of international law, shocked many by it’s results: there was an 82% turnout rate, with almost 97% of those casting their ballots in favor of reunification with Russia. These numbers were so astonishing that there still seem to be many people in the West who cannot bring themselves to believe how much the Crimeans truly longed to return home. And indeed, without an awareness of this land’s heroic history that has been so liberally washed in Russian blood, this public enthusiasm might seem irrational, or even artificial.

Ukrainian Junta and Maidan

By Alexander Gaponenko

Militants are waiting for orders to stage the next coup, until now then they are just killing time looking for something to do. At nights they settles the scores among themselves, the sounds of shootings are heard in the city. More people come to join their ranks. Sometimes they burn and damage building in the heart of the city. The House of Architecture has been devastated by fire, the city’s construction inspector’s archive is in ruins and an unsuccessful attack was launched against the office of Rossotrudnichestvo (the Russian Federal Agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States, Compatriots Living Abroad and International Humanitarian Cooperation).

The Missing Malaysia Airlines Jet MH370: Electrical Fire, Loss of Transponders

From Global Research

By By Chris Goodfellow

There has been a lot of speculation about Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Terrorism, hijacking, meteors. I cannot believe the analysis on CNN; it’s almost disturbing. I tend to look for a simpler explanation, and I find it with the 13,000-foot runway at Pulau Langkawi.

We know the story of MH370: A loaded Boeing 777 departs at midnight from Kuala Lampur, headed to Beijing. A hot night. A heavy aircraft. About an hour out, across the gulf toward Vietnam, the plane goes dark, meaning the transponder and secondary radar tracking go off. Two days later we hear reports that Malaysian military radar (which is a primary radar, meaning the plane is tracked by reflection rather than by transponder interrogation response) has tracked the plane on a southwesterly course back across the Malay Peninsula into the Strait of Malacca.

Bankrupt West Playing Russian Roulette

From PressTV 
By Finian Cunningham 
In the ensuing social chaos, the people of Europe and America will not 
blame Russia for their greatly exacerbated misery and social collapse.
They will turn long pent-up anger and disgust on to their venal and
corrupt so-called leaders. The Western ruling class has used up every
vestige of moral authority and legitimacy in the face of millions of irate
workers and unemployed. Illegal wars of aggression, massive austerity and
years of elite plundering will come home in a tidal wave of revolt.
