On November 25 former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych was to be questioned by a Kyiv court via video link from Russia. The questioning was postponed and the ousted leader gave a press conference in the Russian city Rostov na Donu in which he.

Andreas Umland: Forget Ukraine Fatigue

How the Kremlin’s Hybrid War against Ukraine Spoiled the Euromaidan Revolution, Andreas Umland wrote for Intersection Project. Contrary to the high expectations following the formation of the first post-Euromaidan government in early 2014, the practical implementation of Kyiv’s ambitious reform plans has so far been progressing far too slowly and inconsistently. With the exception of a few innovations, like the creation of a new, well-dressed patrol police, many major reforms

Know your refutations: 5 myths that are used to promote Russia’s war in Ukraine

Throughout the crisis in Ukraine, Kremlin has spent countless millions of Russian taxpayer money to impose its narrative of the crisis on the West. Unfortunately, while this task may be failing, Putin’s propaganda effort covering the war in Ukraine finds somewhat unexpected allies, like the British Stop the War coalition. In August 2014, as regular Russian troops were pouring into war-torn Eastern Ukraine, Stephen Cohen penned an article about the

Nuland Wrongly Accused of Pressuring Ukrainian Government after Prosecutor General’s Comments

On October 20, the English-language, Russian news agency Sputnik published an article alleging that U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland had attempted to pressure the Ukrainian administration to dismiss the country’s prosecutor general.

In a speech earlier this year to the board of the Federal Security Service, Russia’s successor

Putin is Operating a Counterfeit, Propoganda TV Station in Ukraine

BBC Ukraine reports that Ukrainian television broadcasts have disappeared from viewer screens in the self-proclaimed People’s Republic of Donetsk. They have been replaced by Russian and by regional channels operated by separatists (or, should I say, by their Russian puppeteers). Ukrainian efforts to reach viewers in occupied territories via more powerful signals and equipment supplied by Poland have been stymied by the fact that two thirds of viewers in occupied

A Reconstruction of Clashes in Mariupol, Ukraine, 9 May 2014

On 9 May 2014, the center of the Ukrainian city Mariupol was the site of violent clashes between anti-government activists and the Ukrainian army. More than 200 recordings of the events were uploaded onto YouTube by anonymous protestors, often in an attempt to prove that soldiers used excessive force. In this article, I’ll use these videos to reconstruct the course of events that day. In doing so, I will show

Fake: Polish Company ASBS Othago is Fighting on the Side of the Ukrainian Military Forces

Russian and pro-Russian news websites continue spreading false information from terrorists that ASBS Othago, a Polish private military company, is taking part in the conflict on the side of the Ukrainian military forces.

This information started spreading in social networks. This is not the

Russia’s top lies about Ukraine. Part 2

The American website published Russia’s top lies about Ukraine. Russia’s aggressive propaganda machine keeps churning out falsehoods, provocations and outright lies about the situation in Ukraine. In spite of being repeatedly exposed, it shows no signs of slowing down. Disinformation is being laid on thick and poured out in a variety of forums: streaming down from the Kremlin, to Russia’s mainstream media, on to bloggers, down to useful idiots
