BALKANS & EASTERN EUROPE, 12 May 2014
A lecture by Prof. Andrei Fursov, director of Russian Studies, Moscow University, member of the International Academy of Sciences, 14 April 2014.
A wide ranging analysis of the 2013-2014 happenings in Ukraine, its antecedents and consequences from the perspective of a senior Russian academic. A must-read for westerners seeking to understand what is really happening in both the Ukraine and the wider Anglo-US-NATO globalisation drive which it brings into sharp focus.
This is an impressive, comprehensive analysis of the February 2014 Ukraine coup from the perspective of a senior Russian academic. It details the interests and affiliations of the main Ukrainian domestic players – oligarchical clans many of whose leaders have dual nationality – with some shocking and little known detail. It exposes the glaring hypocrisies and double standards of the western sponsors of the coup and their Russian/Ukrainian ‘5th Column traitors’. It sees the coup in Kyiv and Russia’s successful incorporation of Crimea as major game-changers.
