Ukraine references

Here are some informative articles on the Ukraine war, starting with eight by Olga Sukharevskaya, a Ukrainian diplomat and jurist now residing in Moscow. She started writing them early this year, as she saw the crisis developing, before Russian forces entered Ukraine on February 24. All of them appeared on Russia Today, which is now banned from Google search results in Europe, and subject to various censorship elsewhere. The next is from Sputnik, about the reign of terror visited on Ukraine’s Russophile citizens after the 2014 coup. The excerpt from Ukrainian TV shows Ukrainian Nazis candidly stating the real purpose of the Maidan uprising, not about “joining Europe”, but about a right-wing resurgence and war on Russia. Two articles argue that Russia’s attack was self-defense. If you can only sniff at ‘Russian state sources’ like a FB censorship algorithm, you are a sheep.

Diana Johnstone, journo living in Europe since the 1960s and PhD in history, wrote excellent accounts of the origins of the current aggression against Russia, and of the Baltic gas pipeline attacks.

John Helmer, academic and journalist living in Moscow since 1989, attributed the pipeline attacks to rabidly Russophobic Poland, assisted by Denmark, Sweden and US.

The interviews and articles by Jacques Baud, a Swiss with intel/military background, who worked with Nato on Donbass issues, are very informative and heterodox.

Gilbert Doctorow has a PhD in Russian history from Columbia, had a career in east-west business, and writes on the Ukraine war and related topics.

A Twitter thread compiles the advice of nearly 20 foreign policy experts, from George Kennan onward, for Ukrainian neutrality and against expanding Nato.

ConsortiumNews editor Joe Lauria wrote a long account of the 2014 Maidan coup against the Yanukovich government, in defending CN against censorship

The Slavyangrad Telegram channel has been active in various forms since 2014, as a blog, as a zine, and as a Telegram channel. Slavyangrad is partisan, but discerning and informative, edited by a Russian from the Donbass, living in Toronto, and many colleagues.  Its material has been widely cited.

The Grayzone Ukraine archive has informative material as does Moon of Alabama.
