MINA 27/08/14
A letter sent by a prominent Dutch Professor to Russian president Vladimir Putin has attracted much media attention in Europe. The letter was written by Professor Cees Hamelink and signed by dozens of Dutch intellectuals and professors. Below is the letter in its entirety.

Dear Mr. President Putin,

Please accept our apologies on behalf of a great many people here in the Netherlands for our Government and our Media. The facts concerning MH17 are twisted to defame you and your country.

We are powerless onlookers, as we witness how the Western Nations, led by the United States, accuse Russia of crimes they commit themselves more than anybody else. We reject the double standards that are used for Russia and the West. In our societies, sufficient evidence is required for a conviction. The way you and your Nation are convicted for 'crimes' without evidence, is ruthless and despicable.

You have saved us from a conflict in Syria that could have escalated into a World War. The mass killing of innocent Syrian civilians through gassing by ‘Al-*‐Qaeda’ terrorists, trained and armed by the US and paid for by Saudi Arabia, was blamed on Assad. In doing so, the West hoped public opinion would turn against Assad, paving the way for an attack on Syria.

Not long after this, Western forces have built up, trained and armed an ‘opposition’ in the Ukraine, to prepare a coup against the legitimate Government in Kiev. The putschists taking over were quickly recognized by Western Governments. They were provided with loans from our tax money to prop their new Government up.

The people of the Crimea did not agree with this and showed this with peaceful demonstrations. Anonymous snipers and violence by Ukrainian troops turned these demonstrations into demands for independence from Kiev. Whether you support these separatist movements is immaterial, considering the blatant Imperialism of the West.

Russia is wrongly accused, without evidence or investigation, of delivering the weapons systems that allegedly brought down MH17. For this reason Western Governments claim they have a right to economically pressure Russia.

We, awake citizens of the West, who see the lies and machinations of our Governments, wish to offer you our apologies for what is done in our name.
It’s unfortunately true, that our media have lost all independence and are just mouthpieces for the Powers that Be. Because of this, Western people tend to have a warped view of reality and are unable to hold their politicians to account.

Our hopes are focused on your wisdom. We want Peace. We see that Western Governments do not serve the people but are working towards a New World Order. The destruction of sovereign nations and the killing of millions of innocent people is, seemingly, a price worth paying for them, to achieve this goal.

We, the people of the Netherlands, want Peace and Justice, also for and with Russia.
We hope to make clear that the Dutch Government speaks for itself only. We pray our efforts will help to diffuse the rising tensions between our Nations.

Sincerely,

Professor Cees Hamelink

Ukranian officials have said that government troops and pro-Russian rebels are withdrawing forces and artillery from frontline positions in eastern Ukraine following in line with a peace agreement. Monday's withdrawal leaves a 30km buffer between the two sides as part of a nine-point memorandum signed on Saturday. The agreement came after a truce signed on September 5 was hampered by violations, leading to the deaths of 39 Ukrainian troops and civilians. However, reduced fire from pro-Russian rebels in recent days has allowed Ukranian forces to begin to pull back troops, said Anriy Lysenko, a Ukranian military spokesman. Although the withdrawal has begun, it is "not as large as expected", added Lysenko. "We are seeing a trend that [the rebels] are reducing their use of heavy armed weaponry." Neither side has completed their withdrawal. The Ukrainian president, Petro Poroshenko, said that a continued Ukrainian offensive risked alienating support from the US and other Western governments. More than 3,000 people have died in fighting since April. Separatist regions unresolved. Saturday's agreement does not address the future status of rebel-held regions. Reporting from Donetsk, Al Jazeera's Robin Forestier-Walker said many rebel-held towns rely on gas that flows from Ukranian government-controlled areas. "That is why [separatists] resent the current cease-fire," he said. "They want control of the entire Donestsk region." Ukraine accuses Russia of arming separatists and sending troops into Donetsk and Luhansk in eastern Ukraine, a charge which the Kremlin denies. On Monday, explosions were heard in the north of Donetsk, where fighting in recent weeks has centred on a government-held aiport. The Ukrainian president stressed the difficulty of winning the war in rebel-held regions by military power alone. "The more military groups we have there, the more the Russian army will send," he said.

Tucker Carlson's take on U.S. meddling in the Russia-Ukraine issue. Good on him for taking a principled stance against the neocons who are found among both republicans and democrats, and even some of his own colleagues on Fox News.

For months on end, a Russian invasion has been imminent. That is what you would think if you have been watching any of the main news networks across the world, whether it is BBC, Al Jazeera, DW, etc. The Russians should already be in Kiev by now. In the U.S., it is even worse. Many of the vocal republican and democrat politicians, along with all of the major news networks, are obsessed with Ukraine and are clamouring for war with Russia. Tucker Carlson is one of the few prominent personalities on a major news network that is against it, contrary to many of his colleagues on Fox News. He was also against the bombing of Syria. Trump shared the same sentiment in relation to both Russia and Syria, but caved, somewhat, to the war-mongering clowns in the republican establishment. At least he did not start any new wars. There are many among the republican establishment who despise both Tucker and Trump, but they force themselves to be nice because they know both individuals have a large following among conservatives. Tucker has the highest rating show on news. Trump is still very popular with millions of voters.

There is a lot of criticism that can be thrown in Russia's direction and some of it is justifiable. But that is equally true of most other countries, particularly those that are considered to be dominant powers. Whether good in some ways, not so good in others, Russia is a necessity for a balanced world. There are some things that Russia can learn from the West, but the opposite is equally true. The West may be more free, but Russia is an Orthodox Christian country that places family values above some of the weird developments that have plagued the West in recent years. Compare an interview or press conference from Putin with those of western leaders. One is measured and straight-forward. The rest talk in abstract about matters they haven't even addressed in their own countries. The West could not care less about Ukraine. All they care about is destabilising Russia, a nuclear power that happens to be the largest country on earth with an enormous wealth of natural resources. Its very existence is an insult to the pompous elite who feel that they are entitled to dominate the entire world in perpetuity.

I don't know how this situation is going to evolve, but the West is doing everything it can to stoke the fire by insisting on NATO membership for a country that shares a large border with Russia. They insist on Ukraine, which has also made some mistakes, joining a military alliance that is anti-Russian by definition, hypocrisy be damned. Hopefully, cooler heads will prevail.

U.S. and Germany prepare plans to evacuate nonessential embassy personnel in Kyiv, according to multiple media reports. (Matthew Chance reports that U.S. has informed Ukraine that they are "likely to start evacuations as early as next week" of families of diplomats.)

According to militiamen from the Donetsk People's Republic, there are over 120,000 Ukr. soldiers in the Donbass with military equipment constantly arriving. Meanwhile, reports are coming in of U.S. tanks spotted in Romania.

Relatively speaking, the Cuban missiles crisis was not that long ago. The US nearly went to war then when they thought the Russians were getting too close for comfort when they placed their nuclear missiles within striking distance of the US. Now we have NATO, an organization that was created to oppose Russia, courting a country that was, until very recently, universally known as "The" Ukraine, literally meaning "The Borderlands", thereby brazenly poking Russia in the eye. When NATO expanded its membership to the Baltic countries, the "despot" Putin turned a blind eye. When the NATO expanded its membership to Balkan countries, the despot from Russia once again turned a blind eye. Now they want that same despot to turn a blind while they're working hard to establish a home base right at Russia's front door.

The only solution to the Ukrainian crisis that I can see is for NATO and the west to keep the fuck away from Ukraine. Ukraine must remain a neutral country that straddles the west and east spheres of influence without interference. Not unlike Switzerland. Some might argue "But what about Crimea? If the Russians can annex Crimea with impunity, what's to stop them from annexing the whole country?" My answer to that is that Crimea, according to everything I have seen and read, was always Russian to begin with. In fact the Crimean region was gifted to Ukraine during the Soviet era as recently as 1954.

Also, while I'm on the subject of Ukraine, just a point or two on Ukrainian identity. I don't claim to know too much about this and I have no idea how strong the sense of Ukrainian identity is among Ukrainians but I make these points based on observations on an old work colleague of mine who claimed he was Ukrainian. Well, he was Ukrainian when it suited him anyway. The rest of the time he claimed he was a "Russian". I found it really strange. He also claimed he was a "Catholic" but when I pressed him on the subject he revealed that he belonged to a minority "Catholic" faith in Ukraine which probably makes up 1% of all the Christians in that country. The only thing that apparently makes them Catholic is the recognition of the Roman Catholic Pope as head of their church. So, based on all these observations, I just found his sense of identity to be very loose when it came to identifying as a Ukrainian or a Russian.

100%. And, just like you mentioned, I will also add, Russia is a Christian country with Christian values and traditions which is a thorn in the eye to these atheist (satanic) and pedophilic rulers of the western world.
