Various small notes + Open Thread

Dear friends,

As you can see, the new blog is still down.  I was told by my IT specialist that it will be back up tonight. As soon as I know something I will let you know too.

Guys, Hebrew is not the second language in the Ukraine.  Rate your sources, okay? 

(FYI - What is true is that the junta wants to make English the second language).

Gubarev was shot at. There are plenty of photos of his car here.

Colonel Cassad (I consider his one of the best sources on the Ukraine) has a very good photo of what I would call "politics in Banderastan".

A 'civilizational choice' indeed

Igor Strelkov, which some "hurray-patriots" had declared as being held prisoner in Putin dungeons, is alive and well, he just visited Cossacks in Crimea:

But as to why he does not seem to be doing very much of anything - you guess is as good as mine.

As for Poroshenko and the Ukie Rada, they just passed a new law making the day of the founding of the Banderist "Ukrainian Insurgent Army" (the Nazi Ukies of WWII) the official "Day of the Defender of the Fatherland".   Of course, nobody in the "West" seems to have noticed.

Just as western "human rights defenders" are not at all interested in the massive violations of human rights in the Ukraine.

I will be gone all day, so I leave you with the usual "open thread" which I will try to moderate as often as I can.

Kind regards to all,

The Saker
