The Volynia Tragedy: Why It Is «Hard to Believe the Poles..» (I)

On June 20, after two months of discussion, the Polish Senate passed a resolution accusing the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) of «ethnic cleansings with signs of genocide» which took place in 1943 in Volynia... However, the ruling Civil Platform party intends to strike this definition from the text. To put it simply, Warsaw is trying to cover things up and twist historical truth out of political expediency... The truth is, as the «Rzeczpospolita» acknowledges, that «out of the numerous crimes committed against Poles in the 20th century, which was a century of genocide, this one is special in that it is perhaps the only one which the Poles are voluntarily erasing from their memories... It is hard to believe the Poles when they state that on the issue of Katynia they are interested in the truth and not politics when at the same time in their relations with Ukraine they renounce the truth in the name of politics».

US Civil War: Is It Possible?

By the end of 2012, the New York Times published a sensational article called “ Survive Societal Collapse in Suburbia”.  It said Obama had already taken some steps to counter a massive civil war and incoming manifestation of totalitarianism. In these efforts he relies on a superagency – the Department of Homeland Security employing over 160 thousand people, having a budget measured in dozens of dollars and supervising the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureauof Investigation, tax services and other government bodies. It can operate beyond the US borders, allowed to arrest and physically neutralize, it boasts the whole army of informers and is given a carte-blanche for following the steps and hinder the activities of those, who are involved in subversive activities and considered to be the enemies of people by the US authorities…

The Return of Empires (II)

The process already taking shape in the world of consolidating «larger spaces», and the return of the empires of by-gone eras may not, at first glance, seem to respond to the spirit of the times. However, we are living in an age which, in view of its uncertainty in people's minds, is indiscriminate to such an extent that it is no stranger to the most improbable policy prescriptions. The world is in a state of interregnum in which, as Zygmunt Bauman says, «change is the only constant, and the unknown - the only certainty»; in this world, Europe remains a battlefield, but nowadays the battle is between a Westphalian model of sovereign states and new forms of supranational governance...

The Return of Empires (I)

The recent expeditions of the French in Africa clearly smack less of neoimperialism than they do neocolonialism, and have prompted many to wonder whether the events are the start of a new cycle of world politics in which an outgoing unipolarity is perhaps being replaced by a forthcoming multipolarity not hailed by everyone, or something different, something new or maybe a repeat of history, but in new packaging? Maybe something that would allow, for example, the United States «to leave without actually leaving», to continue implementing their global plans in a more complex system of interstate relations? If so, then the imperial projects and vassal relations of by-gone eras that had seemingly vanished forever will turn out to be much in demand...

Christianity and the Contemporary World. Looking Back at 2012

The desecration of Islam and Muslim discrimination are widely debated by media. The cartoons in Denmark, the ban on hijab in France, the Innocence of Muslims movie and the desecration of Quran by US servicemen in Afghanistan etc. – all these kind of stories were going around being by agencies newswires. The plight of Christians is not so much in the focus of public attention, but in reality it’s terrifying: every five minutes a Christian is killed for his faith, over one hundred million Christians are being persecuted nowadays. At the beginning of 2011 the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) adopted the Resolution «On the Situation of Christians in the Context of Freedom of Religion» condemning the killings and discrimination against Christians in several countries... Yet, in the period of 2011-2012 the persecutions against Christians have been considerably on the rise...

Shadowy Aspects of the United Europe Project

The suspiciously synchronous rise of separatism in Europe – the triumph of confederation-minded Flemish nationalists at the municipal elections in Belgium, the March Towards Independence and other demonstrations of assertiveness by Catalan nationalists bracing for snap regional elections in Spain, the preparations, in the framework of the October 15 Edinburgh Agreement, for an independence referendum in Scotland – promise to plunge the economically embattled Europe into serious political destabilization. Pushing Europe deeper into the Balkan-style disarray appears to be a carefully planned policy pursued by Brussels with the goal of eventually getting rid of the European nation-states...

A Modern-World Crusade

The pivotal event in modern history took place in Vatican City three decades ago, on June 7, 1982, when US president R. Reagan – notably, the son of an Irishman who was a devout Roman Catholic – met with Pope John Paul II, born in Poland as Karol Józef Wojtyła...

History’s Obscure Pages: The Plight of Russian Soldiers in Polish Captivity (III)

...Overall, over 50,000 Russian, Ukrainian, and Belorussian prisoners of war perished in Polish captivity. Of the number, 10,000-12,000 were killed without being placed in camps, and 40,000-44,000 – 30,000-32,000 Red Army servicemen plus 10,000-12,000 civilians and members of anticommunist or nationalist groups - died in camps.

History’s Obscure Pages: The Plight of Russian Soldiers in Polish Captivity (II)

Polish authors tend to deny or to avoid mentioning the exceptional mortality rate among Russian prisoners of war due to the conditions in which it became impossible to survive. However, the reality was mirrored not only by survivors' recollections but also by protests voiced by the Soviet diplomacy against the inhuman treatment of Russian inmates in Poland, with appealing facts listed in the corresponding documents... Beatings, humiliating treatment, and inhumane punishments of inmates were endemic in Polish camps...

History’s Obscure Pages: The Plight of Russian Soldiers in Polish Captivity (I)

Over 150,000 Red Army servicemen ended up in Polish captivity as a result of the war unleashed by Warsaw against the Soviet Russia in 1919. Moreover, counting political convicts, civilians, soldiers and officers of the Russian anticommunist White Army, plus members of Ukrainian and Belorussian nationalist groups, the number of inmates in Polish concentration camps topped 200,000... The 1920 Polish approach to counting the prisoners of war was to include not only those who had been taken to camps, but also those who had been shot on site or left without medical assistance on the battlefields...

The OSCE in Ukraine and Russian Spring

In connection with the deepening crisis in Ukraine, representatives of several OSCE missions have famously arrived in the country. On 21 April, I had occasion to talk with two long-term observers with the OSCE Election Observation Mission, Anthony Robinson (Great Britain) and Lester Margosian (USA)... I got the impression that the mission is occupied with serious analytical work... The objectives and possible outcomes of this work are, as yet, unclear.  One thing is clear, however. This is the first time that Europe and the US have dealt with Russians in Ukraine so attentively, and this is a result of the fact that in the southeast of Ukraine, they are calling for a ‘Russian Spring’.
