Trump and Russia

04-09-2020

Attached interview of Anne Applebaum with a former FBI agent on Trump's relations with the Russian Regime of Putin, makes interesting reading at the time of two major crises:

1. The crisis around the poisoning of Alexej Navalny by one of the most lethal nerve gases (Novitsjok) an act that could have been performed only on order of Putin himself; Don't forget that employing nerve gasses in war is illegal. Using it against your own citizens is no less than a crime against humanity. Obviously the Kremlin surrounds tis serious crime with blatant lies, every time a different one!

2. The crisis around the stealing of the elections in White Russia by Lukashenko, long time president and dictator..There is no doubt that the claim that Lukasjenko had received more than 80% of the votes in the elections is another blatant lie in the tradition of the Soviet Union - a lie by which hundreds of peacefully protesting citizens are arrested at random and tortured in prison, with the support of the same Kremlin, using Novitsjok against its own citizens.

And Washington diverted by a President , who has announced in advance that he is not going to accept the outcome of the Presidential elections in November, in case he is not the victor, keeps quiet. Apparently, the Preident likes Lukashenko's approach to elections as supported by Putin.

Silence in Washington on both crises is no less than complicity.. It may even be worse:
          collaboration under pressure as we can read in the attached interview.

Poor America to tumble itsel into another regime of blatant lies.

Description

The peaceful collapse of the Soviet totalitarian, communist system has been a watershed of historic proportions in Europe and the world. In 1989, unexpectedly, Communism and the Cold War were behind us, they were bad and should be forgotten. The immediate post-1989 world presented itself as a new era of organised forgetting, as neither East nor West were interested in examining the prolonged period of acquiescence in absurdities.

The Illusions of Detente

Footprints of the 20th Century - Third Edition

Description

Since 1989, we refer to the whole post-war period as the “Cold War Era”. Such was not the case in 1968. At the time, the Cold War – in our perception – was behind us. We no longer felt to be in the midst of it. Europeans on the Western side of the Iron Curtain0 felt relatively at ease with Europe’s division. The era of Détente as we called it, was0 considered to be a fairly stable and long-lasting political condition, even after Soviet tanks crushed Dubcek’s socialism with a human face in Pragu
