    Flowers Gallery, LondonThe desolate is rendered sublime almost too perfect in these epic images of a land laid waste by Soviet nuclear ambitionsDuring the cold war, Kurchatov and Priozersk on the borderlands between Russia and Kazakhstan were secret cities, closed off to foreigners and not identified on official maps. These were the sites where, for four decades, Russian scientists created prototype atomic bombs and developed an advanced missile shield in a frantic effort to catch up with the US militarys deadly adventure.

    Newspapers and social media report the decision facing the Scottish people with a mixture of fervour, fear and indifferenceBeyond the confines of Britain, the prospect of an independent Scotland has produced a mixture of confusion, astonishment, glee and horror.India's foreign minister, Sushma Swaraj, looked baffled when asked to comment on the possible break-up of the United Kingdom . "Break-up of the United Kingdom? I don't think there is any possibility of that. God forbid!" she said, before a whispered aside from an aide prompted another terse but bewildered line. "It's for…

  • An Interesting Choice of Leaders

    Tim Newman

    Alex K. has posted a graphic account of the treatment of a woman suspected of being pro-Ukrainian in the city of Donetsk recently. I made a comment under the post which I’ve decided to turn into a post of my own, because I am genuinely baffled here.  From what I have seen thus far, and the account above can only serve to reinforce this view, the separatists in east Ukraine are a bunch of violent, armed thugs accountable to nobody (anybody remember MH17?) who have taken it upon themselves to dish out arbitrary punishments to anyone suspected of being against them, operating with…
  • Leningrad It Ain’t

    Nothing unites Russians so much as their agreement that they did a good job in defeating the Nazis in WWII, and hence this achievement has been wheeled out at various times by politicians looking to shore up their popularity or galvanize the citizenry in support of some nationalistic drive or other. It was therefore not very surprising when the Russian government potrayed the uprising in Kiev as driven by facists, implying that the rebels in the east were doing pretty much what great uncle Ilya did at Stalingrad in 1942.  It was nonsense from the outset of course.  Regardless of any…

    A couple of weeks ago I was speaking with a friend, a European who has lived in Russia for most of his adult life.  We were discussing the current political environment in Russia, particularly in regards of the situation in Ukraine, and he made an interesting comment.  He said what was different about the current situation as opposed to any before, and what surprised him, was that Russians who he previously considered to be more liberal and skeptical of the government line had bought wholesale into the Kremlin narrative and had fallen into the same patriotic fervour as the rest of the…

    I was once told a story by an American who found himself working in Russia in the early 1990s.  He had met a fellow American who was involved with the opening of McDonald’s in Moscow, and the latter was finding things rather frustrating, particularly when trying to introduce western standards of customer service to the staff.  Apparently, he told one of the Russia servers to greet the customers and offer a smile, which prompted the following response: “Why?  We’re the ones with all the burgers.” It seems that almost 25 years later some Russians still haven’t…

    Do you work well with your spouse? There was a time when Tom and I tried to team teach back in California. We'd been married about 15 years or so. Though the talk went well...WE did not do so well...before or after. Let's just say there was weeping and gnashing of teeth involved. Thankfully, both of us have grown up a lot since then.We've learned to work as a team over the past 9 years on the mission field. It came about slowly but surely. We've gained a greater respect for one another as the bond of partnership has strengthened throughout the years. Realizing that we are on…
  • Thought for Today

    6 Aug 2014 | 12:29 pm
    The desire to praise God comes from the depth of our relationship with Him. It's not about religion. It's not meant to be an act of duty.  It should flow from a heart filled with love, gratitude, and reverence for Who He is and all that He is. Dig into the Word for yourself and discover Who He is. Take time to get to know Him. Draw near to Him, seek Him, and He will reveal Himself to you. And you will find Him worthy of all praise, glory, and honor!

  • More of the Same: Kremlin Suppresses Candidates

    Vladimir Kara-Murza
    11 Sep 2014 | 10:49 am
    MOSCOW — On September 14th, dozens of Russian regions, including Moscow and St. Petersburg, will hold elections on different levels, from municipal councilors to regional legislators and governors. Supporters of Vladimir Putin and his United Russia party will score landslide victories across the country. This will not be because, as the Kremlin propaganda claims, the regime has widespread popular support—but because all contenders that could pose even potential danger to pro-Kremlin candidates have been removed from the ballot in advance. St. Petersburg, often described as Russia’s most…
  • Is Russia Suited for Democracy?

    Vladimir Kara-Murza
    29 Aug 2014 | 12:58 pm
    MOSCOW — One of the key themes of Vladimir Putin’s propaganda machine—both for domestic and for foreign consumption—has always been the supposed lack of a better alternative. However unattractive Putin’s corrupt and authoritarian regime, the implicit reasoning went, its replacement would be worse—radical nationalists or leftists. It was no accident that, during the mass anti-Putin protests in 2011–2012, state television channels went out of their way to pick out communist and nationalist flags in the crowd—even though communists and nationalists accounted for, respectively, 13…
  • Harshest Sanctions on Russia Yet—From Vladimir Putin

    8 Aug 2014 | 9:17 am
    MOSCOW —When, earlier this year, policy experts suggested that the aggression against Ukraine would be the undoing of Vladimir Putin’s regime, they could not have imagined the speed with which the Kremlin will be sowing the seeds of its own destruction. As Russian analyst Maxim Samorukov has noted, dictatorships often get away with the severest repressions at home—as long as they do not attempt to upset the international order. Vladimir Putin has stepped over the line. His chosen path of confrontation with the entire Western world, his regime’s blatant disregard for international…

    MOSCOW — Just as during the Cold War, when sporting competitions between the free world and the Communist camp inevitably acquired a political dimension, big sport is increasingly becoming big politics for Vladimir Putin’s Kremlin. Nowhere can this be seen more clearly than in the ongoing campaign for the presidency of FIDE, the World Chess Federation, that will be decided at the congress in Tromso, Norway, on August 11th. Two contenders—both of them Russian—are vying for the position. One is Garry Kasparov, the legendary grandmaster, the 13th world chess champion, and an eight-time…

    17 Jun 2014 | 8:56 am
    MOSCOW — The campaign for the 2014 Moscow legislative election began, as has become customary in Vladimir Putin’s Russia, with police raids. Last week, Russia’s Investigative Committee charged Konstantin Yankauskas, a Moscow municipal legislator and a candidate for the City Duma in the September 14th vote, and fellow election contender Nikolai Lyaskin, with “fraud,” conducting searches in their apartments. Lyaskin was released under prosecutorial recognizance; Yankauskas was sentenced to house arrest and will be unable to file his nomination papers at the electoral commission. Both…
