ALL WORK BY JOHN ANTHONY ROBLES II ON THE FORMER VOICE OF RUSSIA
The United States, which has taken the role of the world's policeman, continues to ignore international law, procedural standards, diplomatic conventions and multi-lateral agreements. Roman Seleznev was literally kidnapped by the US from the Maldives on an internal grand jury finding that even a judge in the Maldives did not feel was credible enough to grant the issuing of an arrest warrant. Radio VR spoke to a witness to the kidnapping to get a clearer picture of what actually happened.
15 July, 06:20
Since the beginning of the crisis in Ukraine the government of the Russian Federation, the Russian Armed Forces, the president of the Russian Federation and Russia's leaders have dealt with the threat to Russia's national security strictly within the guidelines of international and national law, in keeping with all international norms and conventions, within the framework of the United Nations and its charter and have maintained the moral and ethical high ground.
13 July, 21:31
The father of Roman Seleznev has offered a $50,000 reward for information regarding the arrest of his son in the Maldives, including any video or other evidence supporting the reports and witness statements that it was American agents that arrested, questioned and then transported his son to Guam. The case is another example of the United States and the CIA flaunting international laws and forcing countries to allow them free reign.

On July 11, 1995, two NATO warplanes bombed Serbian forces, advancing on Srebrenica. But due to the bad weather and the fact that Serbian forces were holding French and Dutch prisoners of war, NATO called off what was to be a massive bombing campaign. Late in the afternoon, Serbian general Mladic and other commanders entered into Srebrenica. They had won, for the moment. This loss by NATO could not accept and through indirect manipulation and false representation of the facts, US and NATO slandered the Serbs and successfully changed the presentation of a legal military operation. Radio Voice of Russia spoke to Stephen Karganovic on the history of Srebrenica in this special interview on the nineteenth anniversary of those events.
11 July, 03:09
There is almost no attention being paid to the humanitarian catastrophe that is occurring in Ukraine in the western media. On a daily basis the issue is ignored, downplayed, obfuscated or denied by officials, organizations and the media. Those who are bombing their own citizens into oblivion continue to act with malfeasance and complete impunity as they carry out their war crimes and their merciless punitive operation against their own civilians.
9 July, 16:26
There is fear spreading through Europe of the specter of war, fuelled by aggressive war propaganda by the West in their attempt to demonize Russia. In Germany, for the first time, people do not trust their mass media. All over Europe appearing strange fascist parties. The blind drive by the US in pursuit of their geopolitical objectives in Europe and in Ukraine has placed the entire European continent in an unstable and extremely dangerous position.
8 July, 23:58
The dangerous bellicose rhetoric and saber rattling declarations by the Kiev authorities continue to reach newer and higher levels with the new minister of defense wasting no time to issue yet another wild and dangerous statement. During his confirmation hearing to the post of defense minister in front of the Ukrainian post-coup parliament Valeriy Heletey boldly declared that there would be "… a victory parade in Ukraine's Sevastopol." Such a statement, for all intents and purposes, might be seen as being tantamount to a declaration of war against Russia.
6 July, 00:49
The number of people who have left Ukraine since the western-backed coup is now approaching half a million. These are people who have left their homes and everything they had and everything they owned, to flee the punitive military operations being conducted against them by Kiev. Radio VR interviewed Oksana Sazonova, a humanitarian worker helping refugees in Rostov.
4 July, 18:32
The choice by US President Barack Obama and the neo-conservative Cold War hawks running the US foreign policy establishment of John F. Tefft as the new US Ambassador to Russia should be setting off warning bells all over the Kremlin and in fact in all of the countries currently undergoing or targeted for US regime change/destabilization operations including Venezuela, Brazil, Syria and all other countries pursuing an independent foreign policy.
30 June, 21:34
The continuing punitive military operations in Ukraine bring into question how far a Government can go to crush dissent. The Western-backed government, in the eyes of many, is guilty of horrible crimes from Mariupol to Odessa. And there have been accusations of war crimes, as heavy artillery, white phosphorus and cluster bombs are being used in Slavyansk, Lugansk and other areas. Charles Shoebridge, a former military intelligence counterterrorism officer, believes that Ukraine is waging a punitive operation against its own people.
25 June, 21:06
On the heels of submitting an official request to the Federation Council to repeal the authorization for the use of force in Ukraine, which was never used but was granted as a means to protect civilian and Russian lives, President Vladimir Putin headed to Austria on an official visit with President of the Republic of Austria Heinz Fischer and expanded talks with high officials. President Putin stated that he was asking for the repeal to attempt to deescalate the situation and as the head of state to promote peace.
24 June, 21:50
As huge swatches of Iraq and the Middle East begin to fall to the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, an al-Qaeda terrorist groups, determined to create their own caliphate in the region, the similarities to their rise to power and other marginal violent groups with the support of the US/NATO/CIA, is something that peace loving citizens of the world should take heed of and be alarmed about.
24 June, 10:49
Ukraine continues to aggressively provoke Russia with acts that could be interpreted as being tantamount to declarations of war. The latest aggression by Kiev against Russia is an attack by the Ukrainian army on a customs checkpoint at Novoshakhtinsk, Russia in the southern Rostov region on the Russian-Ukrainian border. The unprovoked shelling by the Ukrainian military has caused the partial destruction of the customs checkpoint and the serious injury of at least one Russian customs officer.
21 June, 11:01
Part of the demonization that has allowed the Kiev junta to wage a war against ethnic Russians and the Russian speaking population in Ukraine is a very carefully planned and intense campaign of demonization and dehumanization. Another aspect is the silence and non-coverage in the western media of war crimes and atrocities being committed against innocent civilians. This was no more evident than in Victoria Nuland's recent visit to Odessa at a time when there was a ceremony being held for the victims who died at the House of Unions. While Nuland paid US officials paid respects to those who died on the Maidan she ignored the event and reportedly met with Kolomoisky or his representatives.
19 June, 07:06
How is it that in our age of information technologies, the internet and lightning fast communications that a nazi junta has been allowed not only to come to power but has been allowed to legitimize itself and then engage in a war to (in their own words) clear out half of the country of those who are opposed to them?
19 June, 07:05
The conflict in Ukraine started by the illegal junta government and nazi forces which continue to commit horrendous crimes with impunity because they have the full backing of their paymasters across the sea, has destabilized Europe and the world as the US continues to see its hegemony and influence decline. The unilateral and irrational attempt to isolate Russia by the US and prevent Russia from being an influential power is being facilitated by NATO which continues to make demands on its member countries which are damaging to their economies and security.
17 June, 22:44
The 1961 Vienna Conventions on Consular Relations which entered into force on April 24 1964 and have hence been supplemented have been the guiding rules. The preeminent document governing the working of diplomatic missions around the world and clearly laying out the framework for international relations since its inception. The Vienna Conventions have proven to be one of the most respected and successful international documents in history respected and followed even during times of war. Therefore the attack on the Russian Embassy in Kiev, Ukraine is a crime of international proportion which must be condemned by the entire international community.
16 June, 13:56
Bulgaria’s acquiescence to the US hegemony in stopping work on the South Stream gas pipeline is another sign that the United States is effectively attempting to become the master of Europe if it is not already such. With no political or other socio-economic strings attached Russia was attempting to simply supply European consumers and states with a needed commodity to keep themselves warm and cook their meals. Russia provides Europe with very attractive prices, with no conditions attached, and was attempting to merely do business. This of course is something the US does not want.
10 June, 12:59
US Vice President Joe Biden’s smiling and nodding attendance of the inauguration of Ukrainian President was the final stroke in legitimizing a leader and a government brought about by a US backed and orchestrated coup d’état. Sure Mr. Biden has a lot to smile about: not only has his government successfully destabilized another country for the US corporate military industrial complex but he has secured his youngest son Hunter Biden a million dollar job establishing his family's place in the future of the American elite hierarchal oligarchy.
8 June, 23:00
President Vladimir Putin must be applauded, hailed and deeply respected for his statesmanship, his unwavering composure, his respect for protocol, his diplomacy and his iron self-control in maintaining his cool professionalism and business-like demeanor when being forced into what must have been a pressure cooker of historic proportions during the D-Day Celebrations in Normandy.
7 June, 09:53
After recent revelations that the US Government engages in massive hacking, the planting of malware and spyware to gain control and access to computers and engages in massive internet surveillance one has to take all accusations by the US of hacking with a grain of salt.
6 June, 10:23
When French President Francois Hollande invited President Vladimir Putin to take part in the 70th Anniversary D-Day Celebrations he stated: "We can have different views. But I didn't forget and will never forget that the Russian people lost millions of lives in World War II." The President of France must be commended for not forgetting, he is obviously one of the few western leaders who has not forgotten the lessons of history and one who is pragmatic and who connection with reality does not change with the perpetual political winds of change.
6 June, 10:16
One of the most marginalized groups after the events of 9/11 were the scientists and the engineers who could actually prove the fallacy of the official version of those events. From false arrests to demonization, to outright murder after 9/11, there was an unprecedented campaign to silence anyone who went against the official version of those events. The evidence pointing to US Government involvement at the highest levels is wide-ranging, well-documented and proven, yet no investigation is allowed to be carried out and no official has or will be found guilty of one of the worst single acts of homicide in the history of mankind.
5 June, 07:38
The western backed junta in Kiev has announced that it will launch a massive offensive against the populations of eastern Ukraine to "clear the regions of opposition". The unprecedented war against the civilian population began with an aerial attack on apartment blocks, schools, hospitals and air strikes using cluster bombs on the administration building in Lugansk.
2 June, 22:36
There is a school of thought that has it that the elites in the US foreign policy establishment do not understand, and in fact are completely ignorant of the peoples of the world and in particular in the countries where they have launched regime change, color revolution and other operations. The US backed armed coup d’état in Ukraine has taken this egregious inexcusable ignorance to the next level and makes it doubtful that such a contention is true.
1 June, 12:41
Washington and all of the organizations and individuals responsible for the February 22 coup d'état in Kiev may be patting each other on the back, getting out the cigars and congratulating themselves on a job well done but their victory is one which has no meaning in the long term and will once again show to the world, if it has not already, the completely myopic vision of the US foreign policy establishment, the complete and total disregard for international law and the lives of the world's peoples and the complete hypocrisy with which they operate.
31 May, 23:28
The election in Ukraine was illegitimate. Having already lost Crimea with 2 regions having declared their independence and many in the process of currently doing so, the country is in a state of civil war and an illegal junta government in power, the staging of an election in which as many as 80% of the people did not even take part, where over 400 serious violations were registered and which were declared won on exit poll data by a laughing oligarch who immediately won the support of the West before the polls were even closed, can only be described as a "farce of historic proportions". Independent observers around the world agree that there are serious questions regarding the legitimacy of the Ukrainian elections. We talked to an expert Nebojsa Malic on the election issue and more.
29 May, 00:01
The Kremlin and the Government of the Russian Federation are continuing to react to the events in Ukraine with the core goal of ensuring an end to the bloodshed and a normalization of relations with its neighbor. Although not officially recognizing the recent presidential election in Ukraine the Kremlin is ready to recognize the government in Kiev when the results are officially tabulated and certified and if they show the will of the Ukrainian people. Above all the Kremlin wishes stability and an end to the bloodshed and the unacceptable military operations against the people of Ukraine in the eastern part of the country being conducted by the current regime.
28 May, 19:47
The trial of Ratko Mladić continues in The Hague with the defense stage now underway. The defense is operating at a disadvantage since they have been denied access to much material on the case and their time has been unfairly limited not to allow all of their witnesses to give testimony. After the closing of the prosecution’s case the Hague has failed to prove that General Mladic was involved in the events at Srebrenica and have scheduled the hearings so aggressively that it is a virtual death sentence for the ailing Mladic. We spoke to Stefan Karganovic, the President of the Srebrenica Historical Project about the trial and related issues. Mr. Karganovic says in cases where the defense has a strong case, as with former President Milosevic, it is convenient for the Hague when defendants die in custody.
27 May, 23:50
The holding of presidential elections in Ukraine amid the current socio-political climate in the country and the ongoing civil war, which has seen the illegal junta in power labelling those who oppose them as terrorists in order to justify murdering them, openly using heavy artillery against civilian residential buildings and apartment blocks, gunning down unarmed civilians in the street and burning building full of people alive, can only be described as a farce, a parody of democracy and a travesty.
25 May, 09:38
According to the Chinese state-run newspaper Washington is again playing the victim. This time the evildoer is not Russia but China. And the victim – Washington – is being victimized by cyber espionage, when, in fact, according to the Chinese newspaper, it is the world’s top intelligence power.
22 May, 19:10
Under NATO there is no freedom of speech. Under NATO occupation, before the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, activists and people who spoke openly about human rights or even the rights of Serbia under the Dayton Accords, were taken to US military bases and beaten, if all other attempts to silence their voices failed.
21 May, 22:52
The world is no longer a unipolar place and thanks to President Vladimir Putin the US and the West are no longer going to be the masters of the world. This was stated in an exclusive Voice of Russia interview with the Vice President of the Republika Srpska Professor Emil Vlajki. He said the West will align and form alliances with anybody, even with evil if it is in their national interest to do so, and that there is no morality in their policies. For Ukraine the US "interest" is having missiles on Russia's border. As for the current sanctions against Russia Doctor Vlajki called them "ridiculous", and said that in reality it is the Russian Federation who can sanction the West.
20 May, 21:07
The flooding in Serbia is the worst natural disaster that has hit the country in over 120 years. The Russian Emergency Situations Ministry (EMERCOM) has deployed emergency response forces and equipment to Serbia after a decision was made by the Government of the Russian Federation initiated at the request of the Government of the Republic of Serbia after Serbia was hit by devastating unprecedented flooding reports EMERCOM. According to EMERCOM rescuers with the air search and rescue unit "Centrospas" and from the high risk rescue group "Leader" have been deployed to assist the Serbian people as they struggle to deal with the aftermath and continuing flooding which has seen almost the entire country mercilessly submerged under water. We spoke to Boris Malagurski, a Canadian/Serbian filmmaker and one of the people in Serbia assisting with the aftermath of the disaster.
20 May, 00:56
The US/CIA/NATO have stepped up their military operations and continue to actively wage their secret war in Ukraine against the Ukrainian people in an extremely dangerous poorly planned operation that is failing and carries with it the real threat of sparking off a full-fledged war, if not World War III, against an unwilling Russian Federation which continues to attempt to deal with the aggressive-in-your-face-threat to its security through diplomacy and peaceful means. The recent capture and killing of 25 CIA officers in Ukraine only shows the desperation of the US effort and the complete disregard for not only international law and the people of Ukraine but also for the lives of their own CIA personnel.
19 May, 23:26
The Russian Emergency Situations Ministry (EMERCOM) has deployed emergency response forces and equipment to Serbia after a decision was made by the Government of the Russian Federation initiated at the request of the Government of the Republic of Serbia after the county was hit by devastating unprecedented flooding reports EMERCOM. According to EMERCOM rescuers with the air search and rescue unit "Centrospas" and from the high risk rescue group "Leader" have been deployed to assist the Serbian people as they struggle to deal with the aftermath and continuing flooding which has seen almost the entire country mercilessly submerged under water.
17 May, 19:12
On May 16th, what could have been millions of people were to descend on Washington DC in what was being called "Operation American Spring". Groups of militias and veterans, formed after the closure of a monument to World War II veterans during the recent US Government shutdown had joined forces to put an end to the illegality that exists at the highest levels of the US Government. We spoke to Roberto Tonnizo, one of the organisers of Operation American Spring about the events before they took place.
17 May, 12:57
The western backed junta in Kiev, installed in February of this year after years of planning by the US/CIA/USAID/NATO/EU and billions of dollars spent on NGOs, destabilization teams, installing and paying for puppets and training, arming and backing far right nazi paramilitary groups and paying mercenaries from the Greystone private CIA army, may finally be showing the first signs of what has to be its imminent demise. Unless the breakup of Ukraine was the plan all along (which may be a possibility) the imminence of that demise should have been forecasted as well as the fact that the Ukrainian people would never support nazis in power. Knowing US foreign policy and their disasters all over the world one might then assume that Ukraine was just another failed US operation of historic proportions carried out by ignorant myopic planners delusional in their own invincibility.
16 May, 13:34
For over a decade hundreds of innocent young girls and women have been disappearing in Canada. School girls under 11, teenagers and young ladies have all disappeared or have been found beaten, raped or dead in dumpsters, ditches, by the side of the road and in landfills.
14 May, 01:00
Blame for the situation in Ukraine lies fully with the United States and those in Kiev, and for the most part western Ukraine, who were ready to sell out their country to advance US/NATO geopolitical interests. The goal of US/NATO is not one that normal people truly understand, it is one where military objectives against the phantom enemy of the USSR must be carried out and Russia and then China neutralized in order to advance US hegemony which only benefits the elites. For these military planners the people and the countries they are destroying mean nothing. Ukraine to them is an abstraction on a map where pins must be placed showing the location of nuclear missile aimed at Moscow.
13 May, 20:44
The western installed nazi junta in Ukraine is having problems that no amount of lies or spin from Washington will be able to fix. No matter how hard top western officials attempt to legitimize their NATO puppets and demonize and kill the citizens of Ukraine who are against the nazi coup government, their efforts are failing.
12 May, 21:51
The US government, NATO, European Union countries and their pliant media are all suppressing the truth about what is really occurring in Ukraine, just like in Yugoslavia. And they are supporting and using Nazi groups to fulfill geopolitical objectives, something that they have continued to do since the end of the Great Patriotic War (World War II). It would be understandable if Jews worldwide raised the alarm and took up arms, metaphorically speaking, against the US. However, they are not being informed and the truth is being suppressed. We spoke to Professor Barry Lituchy, the editor and co-author of the book “Jasenovac and the Holocaust in Yugoslavia”. He is also a member of the US-Jewish community and has roots in Ukraine. He spoke about the US support and the continuation of US collusion with Nazis and fascists worldwide.
9 May, 20:09
The junta in Kiev is continuing its campaign of terror and violence against the people of Ukraine and is also attempting to expand it short-sighted retaliatory measures against the peaceful civilians in the Russian Federal Republic of Crimea.
8 May, 19:19
The genocide of the Jews and the Slavs in Yugoslavia was one of the most brutal in the WW II. Catholic fascists and others were infamous for their brutality and manually slaughtered their victims one by one. As recently as in the 1990’s genocide was carried out in Croatia and the former Yugoslavia against the Serbs, yet Croatia, without paying restitution or answering for its genocide, was allowed to enter the European Union. John Bosnitch, a 20-year-veteran of radio NHK in Japan spoke about the slaughter of members of his family in the former Yugoslavia by Croat fascists and said the current situation in Ukraine is part of NATO expansion to the east and the eventual destruction of the Russian Federation.
8 May, 07:38
Genocide is the most barbaric tactic for disposing of one’s enemies ever thought up by human kind. Throughout history it has been used by barbaric groups who believed they are superior or in some way “chosen” and chose to destroy those who challenge their delusional homicidal beliefs. Those who would commit genocide or their apologists must never be allowed to get away with their crimes.
7 May, 21:38
On Monday May 5, 2014 the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin passed a Russian Federal Law "On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation" aimed at opposing attempts to infringe on historical memory in relation to events that took place during World War II(the Great Patriotic War), according to the Kremlin. This is a clear sign to fascists worldwide.
7 May, 09:40
Historically speaking it was just a short while ago that a group of "nationalists", led by a madman who had a gift for evoking ultra-nationalist sentiment and blind obedience and a special talent for awakening the mindless blood thirsty beast that may still reside in the deepest darkest primordial recesses of the human psyche, launched a campaign of genocide and drove the planet into a state of world war.
5 May, 13:35
The publication of the book Spy Catсher, an autobiography by a senior MI-6 intelligence officer named Peter Wright, at that time was scandalous for Military Intelligence 5 (or MI-5) and every attempt was made to prevent its publication. Now the publisher of Spy Catcher is about to release a book by a hitman for MI-6 called "Just Between Friends".
4 May, 23:59
The Press Secretary for the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov has stated that the so-called authorities in Kiev will, in the end, have to answer primarily to the Ukrainian people for their actions with regard to the ordering of military operations against civilians in the south eastern part of Ukraine. However the members of the junta government in Kiev who are responsible for ordering what they have tried to label as an "anti-terrorist" operation, one which has seen the participation of fighter aircraft, armed troops and the death of protestors continue to operate with impunity.
3 May, 00:48
The United States of America has been engaged in overthrowing governments, getting rid of leaders (including through outright assassination), organizing revolutions, financially manipulating and subjugating nations and destabilizing countries and regions for decades. For those in Washington and at the CIA in Langley, Virginia their actions are completely justified because they are "protecting and advancing US interests".
1 May, 23:54
The US geopolitical strategies of: isolation; "projecting US power by force"; destabilization; economic manipulation (sanctions); regime change; military expansion through the use of surrogate countries surreptitiously annexed by NATO; the continued demonization and attempted "isolation" of Russia through the use of the old and tired Cold War bogeyman and the current onslaught of anti-Russian propaganda, lies and reverse blame, are all backfiring on the increasingly aggressive, irrational and dangerous war hungry Washington planners.
30 April, 21:44
Crisis actors, smoke bombs, fake blood and literal "smoke and mirrors" were all part of what was the false flag terrorist attack called the Boston Marathon Bombing. To anyone who saw the pictures and footage of fake blood, make- up artists and smiling “victims”. It was obvious that something was not right. For those involved in filmmaking and in the know the discrepancies were obvious. We spoke to famous Hollywood filmmaker, producer and director Nathan Folks about why he is certain the Boston Marathon Bombing was a false flag terrorist attack.
28 April, 23:47
The recent comments by US Secretary of State John Kerry against Russian Broadcaster RT, which has been doing its utmost to try to present the truth about what is really happening in Ukraine against the onslaught of the unprecedented lock-step eschewing of the truth that the western media have been engaged in are egregious and must not be allowed to go unanswered. However the comments by Kerry do serve beautifully to underline the complete and total hypocrisy and the tactic of reversing blame that the US is currently involved in with regard to Ukraine.
26 April, 16:33

25 April, 09:05
The practice of regime change through color revolutions and destabilization practiced by the US can currently being seen in countries all over the world including Ukraine, Venezuela and the Serbskaya Republic. Russia has faced the entire US color revolution architecture and thanks to its strong security services was able to successfully fend off this form of attack on sovereignty. Smaller countries and territories like the Serbskaya Republic however are very vulnerable to the manipulations of USAID, Transparency International and the entire group of organizations and NGOs that the West uses to manipulate countries to submit to its hegemony.
23 April, 22:03
The Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Sergei Lavrov has called on the United States to face responsibility for those they brought to power in Kiev instead of giving Russia ultimatums and making false accusations against Moscow. This call by Foreign Minister Lavrov and Moscow, while made in the language of diplomacy and a call to simply do what the rest of the world which abides by international law and standards, may be a sign that the days of US impunity and illegality on the international stage may finally be coming to an end.
22 April, 07:28
The headline in the Boston Globe reads: "Obama focuses updated Cold War approach on Putin" and the New York Times article by one Peter Baker that follows is one of the one of the most acidic, fact-starved, sanctimonious, self-righteous, chest beating, Russophobic, war-propagandistic, Putin-envious, out-of-touch diatribes to come out of the western media in the current tidal wave of Gleichschaltung-like anti-Russian war-propaganda.
21 April, 08:14
The campaign by the western media to demonize Russia, beat the drums of war and paint the recent Crimean reunification with Russia as illegitimate, something that even the OSCE had decided to do before it was carried out, is one of the most dangerous and egregious demonization campaigns in recent history. The reporting of lies and fabrication of news is at such a level that it might even be considered criminal. In order to help get to the truth the Voice of Russia interviewed observers and people on the ground, one such observer, the Editor in Chief of the German monthly Zuerst, Manuel Ochsenreiter, spoke to us about what he saw and more importantly what he did NOT see in Ukraine.
21 April, 02:49
With the drums of war being beaten in Washington, the economy in tatters and about to collapse and a government which is not representative of the people and only serves the interests of banks and corporations, the American people are coming to a point where they are ready to stand up and revolt.
20 April, 13:57
When a country's military-industrial complex is privatized and run by corporations, war becomes a business rather than the last means for the self-defense of a country's sovereignty or people. The constant wars the US is engaged in have enriched those who profit and yet have devastated the economy and the population.
20 April, 12:21
Coverage in the Western media, statements by US, EU officials and now a report by the UN – all try to paint a negative portrait of the Crimean Referendum. According to Paul Roberts, a former Assistant US Treasury Secretary, a UN report that was just released is simply propaganda created by Washington and lacks both grounds and credibility as well as evidence. He said that the report was an orchestrated propaganda attempt that had been arranged to serve the US agenda, discredit the referendum and deflect attention from the fact that Washington overthrew a democratically elected government in Europe. The Voice of Russia spoke to Srdja Trifkovic, the foreign affairs editor at Chronicles Magazine, he was an observer at the Crimean Referendum on this issue and more.
19 April, 00:00
Like a house guest whose exit has long been overdue, the United States continues to bash around Europe as many European countries are beginning to realize that the damage being caused by US geopolitical strategy is far worse than any benefits that they may be able to gain. This was stated in an interview with the Voice of Russia by Joseph Zrnchik, a retired US military planner and trainer. Mr. Zrnchik believes that US failed foreign policy has weakened the US economically, militarily and geopolitically and that this failure is leading to the collapse of his country.
18 April, 00:20
The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin conducted his yearly question and answer session with the public and citizens of Russia, this time spending approximately three hours and fifty minutes answering a wide range of questions in an impressive manner never once faltering or at a loss and citing facts, figures and details on everything from assisting a disabled man to obtain a home to the aggressive expansion of NATO to the East. This year the Kremlin added a the possibility of sending in video for those who wanted to ask the president questions, as well as text messages, e-mails, regular post, phone calls and submissions through the Internet.
17 April, 19:49
The mob beatings, kidnappings and public humiliation of candidates for president in Ukraine are just the latest outrages being carried out by the western backed and coup installed neo nazi junta in Ukraine. The complete affront to all accepted civilized democratic principles is just another in a long line of horrific acts that have been carried out by the western backed neo nazi Right Sector thugs that the US brought to power in Ukraine. The US is directly responsible for causing the demon of fascism to once raise its head in Europe, yet Europe and the international community are for the most part silent and are instead engaged in a frenzied irrational campaign to demonize Russia.
16 April, 08:18
The criticism of the Russian Federation by Australia is another example of western double standards and hypocrisy especially given the fact that Australia is currently paying other countries to house refugees in razor-wire camps who were attempting to reach Australia. The media manipulation and the views of the West propagated by anti-Russian politicians and Washington strategists have skewed the image of the situation in Ukraine for the world audience. The over simplification of the situation in Ukraine and in Crimea by the western media into a good vs evil is far from reality. The VOR talked to Greg Barns, he is an advisor for the WikiLeaks Party in Australia about Australian reaction to this situation in Ukraine.
14 April, 23:37
The process of reaching a peaceful political resolution to the western backed coup in Ukraine which will be of benefit to all of the people of Ukraine as the continuing crisis continues to deepen is being exacerbated by the continuous disgraceful and shameful coverage in the western media and continues to add to the threat of the country spiraling into complete lawlessness and anarchy. Russian President Vladimir Putin has written a letter to 18 European leaders detailing Russia's position and steps to a diplomatic resolution to the US instigated crisis but will Europe listen? Let's hope for cooler heads.
13 April, 16:48
The situation in Ukraine and the policies of the United States internationally with regard to sovereignty, resources and force all have their origins in the founding of the American state on the genocide of the native people and the stealing of their resources, says elder with the Mohawk Nation Tekarontake.
12 April, 17:03
The ancestors of 13 Illuminati families and the Rothchilds who are prospering from the genocide of the American Indians must be brought to justice for continuing the legacy of theft, tyranny and genocide that was passed down to them. Tsar Nicholas started an international body in the Hague to settle disputes and maintain the peace, one whose foundation was the same as the Great Law of the indigenous people of Turtle Island (North America).That body is the only place where the ancestors of genocidal European filth who continue squatting on land that is not theirs and stealing resources they have no right to, will ever be brought to justice. This is the final installment of a longer interview with Mohawk Elder Kahendinetha Horn in which she spoke to the Voice of Russia on these issues and much more.

The manipulation of the media by the West with regard to the situation in Ukraine and the bias that exists in media outlets worldwide was a subject discussed with the Voice of Russia by Kristinn Hrafnsson, the official spokesperson for WIkiLeaks. In the final segment of this interview Mr. Hrafnsson speaks on the issue of how one can attempt to get a balanced picture of global events and says he is concerned that fascists are in power in Europe again.
11 April, 19:23
For the oppressed people of the world subjected to exploitation and the forces of imperial powers Russian President Vladimir Putin has become a real hope for a return of multi-polarity and the mutual respect of all nations. Decades of US imperial attempts at achieving global hegemony by force, illegal methods and endless aggressive war have had the reverse effect that the US global imperialists had hoped for. The main weapon for the US in its strategy was the use of aggressive war and regime change.
11 April, 00:56
The US Broadcast Board of Governors, the organization which runs the US Government's media and internet operations, recently received a letter from Dmitry Kiselyov, the head of Rossiya Segodnya, in which he stated that the Voice of America and Radio Liberty would not be allowed to broadcast in Russia any longer after their contract with Russia ran out.
10 April, 06:09
The situation in Ukraine continues to develop in ways that the US architects of the coup, the CIA, neoconservatives like Victoria Nuland, Geoffrey Pyatt, Michael McFaul, Barrack Obama, George Soros and the Zbignew Brezhinsky acolytes running the US foreign policy establishment, obviously had not planned.
8 April, 07:44
The basic motivation and basic philosophy of US foreign policy is world domination and for the US, "world domination" means getting rid of the countries that stand in its way, says historian William Blum in an interview with the Voice of Russia. Today, there are only two countries in the world that have the military capability to confront the US: Russia and China.
7 April, 11:41
For the public revelations that the CIA and NSA were spying on the committee that was supposed to have oversight of their activities should be of great concern as it is a major breakdown in the system of checks and balances that should be inherently present in a healthy democracy.
7 April, 07:43
The clandestine invasion of Ukraine by the West is an unprecedented, disgraceful and heinous victory of international lawlessness by the US/NATO/EU. The violent coup d'état staged by western backed neo-nazi elements, the subsequent secretly planned subjugation and enslavement of the Ukrainian people and the seizing of the resources of Ukraine is not only a violation of the territorial integrity of Ukraine but another illegal attempt at nation building/destroying by US geopolitical architects attempting in vain to save a dying empire and establish American hegemony worldwide.The brutal racist lawless state that is the United States of America is embodied by their bought and paid for brownshirts in Kiev who continues terrorizing the populace and are a blight on the very ideas and fundamental principles of rule of law and democracy and they continue to stain the world unabated for the rest of the civilized world to see.
7 April, 00:42
No people in the history of the world have suffered more at the hands of their fellow man than the indigenous peoples of North and South America. These people suffered the greatest genocide ever to occur on Earth and yet still remain the most peace loving nations on our planet.
5 April, 23:50
Today Europe is living with the consequences of unprecedented US/NATO aggression against the former Yugoslavia 15 years ago. The invasion and destruction of Yugoslavia, the first war in Europe since WWII, resolved nothing in the Balkans but created many new problems. The former Foreign Minister of Yugosalvia ŽivadinJovanović discussed these issues and more in an interview with the Voice of Russia and stated that countries are increasingly becoming ready to fight back against the United States and its colonial attitudes and that it is time for all the forces of peace in the world to join together and stop US/NATO imperialist policies which are the single biggest threat to modern civilization.
5 April, 09:03
The United States continues to cause crisis after crisis all over the world and is the single greatest cause of global instability. This was stated in an interview for the Voice of Russia by Joseph Zrnchik, a Retired US Military Observer Controller/Trainer turned geopolitical commentator. Mr. Zrnchik stated that this being the case then Russia needs to start challenging American interests wherever and however it can.
1 April, 22:58
In the United States only those with money can get justice. There is no justice for the poor and the lawyers assigned by the state to defend those without the finances to retain their own lawyers in reality only serve the interests of their bosses, namely the state. The inability to get justice or to be treated with the same respect as the rest of the population is particularly acute for marginalized indigenous peoples whose only avenue for redress against wrongs inflected on them by the state and its agents are in the very courts those guilty of crimes against the Indians control. Tekarontake an elder with the Mohawk Nation spoke to the Voice of Russia about a case that has been dragging through the courts for 17 years and one that saw armed state police beating Indian women and children. The Indian victims have refused to settle out of court, but the cards are stacked against them as the state does what it does best, protect its own criminals.

30 March, 22:15
The US Government, through the use of paramilitary neo-nazi extremist elements carried out the overthrowing of the government of Ukraine. Admissions, statements and the actions of US Government officials and hundreds of taped conversations, private e-mails, and uncontested facts that have been reported and released prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the US was behind the coup in Ukraine, yet the “world community” is quiet and the disgrace and affront to humanity that the West calls “Euro-Maidan” continues to blight and sully the concepts of democracy, rule of law, sovereignty and civilization in front of the eyes of the world.
30 March, 01:14
Ukraine is a perfect example of how the US uses the worst elements of a society to do their dirty work in other countries and how the US/NATO has a problem finding honest quislings. Since the US favors the nazi coup in Ukraine they talk about sovereignty and the right to self-determination of the Crimean people is made into some outrageous business for which Russia is demonized. John McCain, the chief chicken hawk and key "moral support" figure for the US’ insurrectionists and nazis in Ukraine, urged dissidents in Russia to rise and through that the effect of Ukrainian "freedom" would spread into Russia. McCain and the rest are engaged in subversive incitement, and once again their complete lack of intelligence and knowledge has left them looking like fools to the world. Professor Edward Herman spoke to the Voice of Russia regarding these issues and more.
29 March, 09:45
US President Barack Hussein Obama today made it crystal clear to anyone left in the world who has not been paying attention as to what his corporate controlled government's interests are in Ukraine and Europe. In a televised address Obama eloquently (if not falteringly as if his forked tongue was having problems spewing the lies he was stating) laid out the facts for the world to see and for the world to blindly obey.
27 March, 03:54
Distracted by attempting to demonize Russia, continuing the support of a neo-nazi coup government in Ukraine which is to sign over 100% of Russia’s gas pipeline to Exxon oil under a clause in the European Union agreement, Washington seems to have forgotten to maintain even a pretense of pretending to care for human rights. Another client country Egypt is about to execute 529 innocent demonstrators for the death of one policeman. Where are the sanctions and the screams about human rights from Washington? Nowhere. Egypt provides oil and buys weapons, therefore Egypt can do as it may. US hypocrisy has approached epic levels, even allowing Egypt to beat and deport one of America’s most outspoken defenders of human rights. Medea Benjamin was recently deported from Egypt for attempting to enter Gaza and fight for the rights of the Palestinians and had her arm pulled out of its socket by police. Obama was silent. Of course, he has gas and weapons to sell and selfies to take.
26 March, 22:22
Immediately after his arrival in Moscow and before even unpacking his bags, the former US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, met with members of the George Soros/USAID funded "opposition" and gave his agents their marching orders. Of course sugar coating the relationship between the US and the Russian opposition with words like "democracy" and "human rights" played well to the audience in the US and the West, however it did not go over as well as McFaul had hoped for here in Russia. Despite not being a diplomat neocon Michael McFaul was chosen as the US Ambassador to Russia because he was a specialist on color revolutions and was sent to organize just such a revolution here in Moscow, unfortunately Russians were to wise to fall for it, and immediately upon leaving he made his true colors known.
25 March, 17:37
The genocide of the indigenous peoples of North and South America continues to this day and the Indian Nations continue to fight for their very existence. The US Government has never rescinded standing orders for the complete extermination of the Indian People nor has it ever allowed the true owners of the lands that the "Americans" are squatting on to achieve any sort of redress. In monetary terms the "Americans" owe the native people over $700 trillion yet they continue to rape the land that is not theirs to begin with. Mark Maracle and Elder with the Mohawk Natition and an Iroquois spoke to the Voice of Russia on these issues and more. Mr. Maracle stated that the Great Law of Peace that was given to the Iroquois was given to the whole world and he invites people to come and listen and learn.
25 March, 01:32
The Belgrade Forum for a World of Equals, the Serbian Host Society, the Club of Generals and Admirals of Serbia and Veterans Association of Serbia (SUBNOR), in coordination with the World Peace Council, on 22 and 23 March 2014 held the International Conference "Global Peace vs. Global Interventionism and Imperialism". The Conference was held on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of NATO’s armed aggression against Serbia and Montenegro (the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia). The motto of the Conference was "Not to Forget". The following is the closing statement of the forum which was submitted to the Voice of Russia by the Former Foreign Minister of Yugoslavia Živadin Jovanović .

24 March, 21:25
The west, their hypocritical politicians and their subservient wholly owned media continue to fabricate, obfuscate, twist and outright lie to create the impression that the neo nazi killers they hired to bring about a coup in Ukraine are innocent little oppressed people who have done nothing wrong, were being killed by the police and merely want to live free and democratically.
23 March, 23:12
The mystery continues into the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370. Could it be that the crew and everyone on board were incapacitated by hypoxia and the aircraft flew on autopilot until it ran out of fuel or, according to Professor Kevin Barrett, the plane could have been remotely hijacked using something called the Flight Termination System developed by a company run by Dov Zakheim. Dr. Barrett believes that the same group that was involved in 9-11 and used this system may also be behind the flight's disappearance.
22 March, 22:20
The differences between Christianity, Islam and Judaism are things few talk about or understand but ones which Professor Kevin Barrett was kind enough to partially explain in part 3 of an interview with the Voice of Russia. Dr. Barrett also said that neocon Zionists and the likes of Zbignew Brzezinski do not represent the American people. Dr. Barrett says the US is overthrowing democracies all over the world including in Egypt, Thailand, Venezuela and now in Ukraine. All of these places have/had constitutional democratically elected governments and fairer elections than the US with its programmed Diebold voting machines.
21 March, 21:16
As the US attempts to rule the world from Washington through the use of force and a policy of aggressive war the neocon architects have overlooked the fact that the military depends on the economy and the US economy is hallowed out and on the verge of collapse. Countries such as Russia and China with strong economies will rise while the US neocons who came into power in the 9-11 coup d'état have only hastened the demise of the very empire that they were intended to prop up. This was stated in an interview with Professor Kevin Barrett, who characterized Zbignew Brzezinski and the neocons as complete fanatical militarists zio-nazis that want to attack anybody and are even happy to attack Russia and threaten the world with WWIII.
21 March, 15:25
The US has continued to violate all treaties and agreements since the end of the cold war and US/NATO have continued to expand eastward. Ukraine is part of this expansion. Using what is called by the CIA "subversive incitement" the ordinary people's dissatisfaction with the government was harnessed by right wing and foreign sponsored elements who seized control of power in Kiev, resulting in a government controlled by right wing anti-Russian and foreign linked elements that make it a "counter-revolutionary coup". In an interview with the Voice of Russia renowned author Edward Herman gave his views on the situation in Ukraine and more calling the West the real aggressors in Ukraine.
20 March, 13:49
Historically Crimea has always been a part of Russia and the referendum and the vote of the people for reunification with the motherland in fact corrects a 20 year old error when Crimea was given to Ukraine like a sack of potatoes. The reaction by the West and its double standards proves that it is unprincipled and only concerned with its own interests. According to Živadin Jovanović the former Foreign Minister of Yugoslavia the US/NATO and the West are behaving like they are representatives of God Almighty and that the only right is that proclaimed and certified in Washington or Brussels. US/NATO and the West have no problem dangerously allying themselves with mujahidins, Al-Qaeda, UÇK (KLA) terrorists or neo-nazis, as long as they can be exploited.
20 March, 00:49
In a historic moment the people of Crimea have been waiting over 20 years for the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin signed a treaty with the Republic of Crimea officially allowing for the accession of Crimea and Sevastopol into the Russian Federation.
18 March, 23:34
With the highest voter turnout in Crimean history (83.1%) the referendum on the reunification of Crimea with the Russian Federation (which as of writing with 100% of the votes counted has seen 96.77% voters saying yes to the accession) is a watershed moment of historic proportions for the peoples of Crimea, Russia, and the world on many levels.
17 March, 15:29
The Crimean Prosecutors have initiated criminal cases against the militarized radical nationalist groups that carried out the violent coup d'état in Ukraine. The leaders of the Right Sector and the Brotherhood will have to answer charges related to their calls for military aggression, inciting violence and aggression and organizing and intent to organize terrorist acts in Crimea. This comes in official statements from Crimean officials and the press service of the Crimean prosecutor's office.
15 March, 21:20
The actions of the US Government since the installation of George Bush as president have been criminal both domestically, where they have effectively cancelled the US Constitution and even more so internationally, where they have flipped international law on its head, made a mockery of the Geneva Conventions, turned the United Nations into just another US Government rubber stamp and committed multiple crimes against humanity.
14 March, 19:34
The outright lies being printed and broadcast in the western press regarding the situation in Ukraine is just the next level from a war on truth begun with the events of 9-11. Since that time the US Government and its subservient media has been pounding the American people with extreme Orwellian propaganda, that pays no attention to the reality of anything, According to Professor Kevin Barret in an interview for the Voice of Russia.
14 March, 18:00
By tomorrow, the 15th of March 2014, the United States, through its agents in Ukraine, will begin a series of false flag attacks on targets in Ukraine which have been designed to make it look as if they were carried out by the Special Forces of the Russian Federation.
14 March, 11:34
It is a rhetorical question but one that has to be asked again and again; what would be the US Government’s response, if for example protestors went into the Democratic National Committee, burned it down to the ground, occupied government buildings, shot police who were unarmed and then placed themselves in the seats of power by force? he fact is there would be a bloodbath and the authorities would open fire on the “peaceful demonstrators”.
13 March, 23:38
The western propaganda and brainwashing of the population is so widespread and the populace so completely under control that even when presented with concrete undeniable facts that run counter to the official narrative the majority of people still refuse to believe. This has made it a literal information war when it comes to the situation in Ukraine and even the simple fact that there was never an “invasion” of Ukraine by Russia, something egregiously and erroneously reported by the western media, is almost impossible to counter. Russia has not now or ever “invaded” Ukraine or the Crimea, there has been a contingent of Russian troops supporting the Black Sea Fleet there for decades. That is the simple fact.
12 March, 10:08
With the US destroying much of the world and killing millions of people in their resource wars it is important to look at the roots and the foundations of that country. The US was founded on the theft and exploitation of resources and on the extermination of the native people.
12 March, 04:42
With the end of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and hence an end to a movement toward world Socialism and Communism we have seen the dehumanizing forces of capitalism spreading throughout the world and stifling the will and the very nature of the people and the human race as a whole.
11 March, 08:08
Like Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and before it the former Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, Serbia is another country that was also invaded and destroyed by US/NATO. Serbia today is overburdened by foreign debt and through the IMF and other “loans”, like other countries, faces being enslaved by the West. Serbia is proof that when the West gives 1 Euro, it takes 100 Euros. You mentioned the damage of NATO to Yugoslavia $120 billion. But even what was not destroyed, that was privatized by criminal privatization. These issues and more were touched upon by Živadin Jovanović, the former Foreign Minister of Yugoslavia in an interview with the Voice of Russia.
9 March, 21:51
The coup d'état in Ukraine and its aftermath as well all of the events leading up to it are proving even to the casual thinking observer that the western corporate controlled media has lost any semblance of even a pretense at being fair, balanced and reasonable.
8 March, 17:36
The news coverage of the events in Ukraine in the West is just further evidence of the control of information by those in power in the US and the incestuous nature of the corporations and the government, as well as their control of non-US based media outlets.
7 March, 06:39
The overthrow of the government of Ukraine was an armed coup d’état ordered, planned, organized, funded, carried out and executed by the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the Pentagon, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and their surrogates in the European Union (EU) using every instrument at their disposal including the National Security Agency (NSA) and all of their amassed media resources. It was carried out with the knowledge and approval of US President Barack Hussein Obama if not at his directive.
6 March, 11:30
Instead of the Obama Administration trying to sit down with President Putin and negotiate a way out of this in good faith, all the signs are that the Obama Administration is going to try to cement Victoria Nuland's neo-nazi gang of thugs in Kiev into power, according to US based Professor Francis Boyle. He says the OSCE (The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe), NATO and the EU all support the US/CIA "project" as he called it. Professor Boyle says it is appalling that the EU stated that Nuland's neo-nazi thugs in Kiev "reflect European values" and that there is an enormous amount of war propaganda and disinformation being put out including by Zbignew Brzezinskiyand his "pet poodle" Madeleine Albright who continue to attempt to demonize irrationally Russia.
5 March, 10:30
The US/NATO are engaged in destabilization operations in Ukraine in order to take control so that the oil corporations will have greater chance to control natural gas coming out of Russia and also to use Ukraine as a NATO base and put missile defense systems on Russia’s border. In Venezuela, which also has huge oil reserves, the same operations are taking place. The instruments include the National Endowment for Democracy, USAID as a key CIA player and funding from billionaires such as George Soros.
5 March, 08:12
Last Friday US President Barack Hussein Obama, the "leader of the free world", a title gratefully no longer applied extensively in public, gave a press briefing on the situation in Ukraine before taking off for the weekend to play golf or paint pictures of dogs or whatever it is American presidents do over the weekend.
5 March, 07:08
What has occurred in Ukraine was not a popular revolution, it was a carefully orchestrated coup d’état. The "demonstrators" with the metal barricades, bullet proof vest, army helmets, weapons, shield and masks were very well organized and trained. The whole affair was orchestrated by the West in an attempt to bring Ukraine into NATO and split Russia. Mr. David Shayler a former MI5 officer spoke to the Voice of Russia on the activities of the intelligence services and on what the forces behind the scenes are doing. He says President Putin is merely protecting his country and his people and is in a strong position.
4 March, 23:55
Patterns of a western instigated and engineered color revolution strategy are being clearly seen in developments in Ukraine and are part of the US/NATO strategy of expansion towards the East with the goal of reaching Russian borders on all sides. In light of the 15 year anniversary of the beginning of NATO aggression against Serbia and Montenegro, March 24, 1999, the Voice of Russia spoke to the last Foreign Minister of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia Živadin Jovanović who spoke about these issues and the correlations that are now occurring in Ukraine.
3 March, 21:35
The Federation Council of the Russian Federation has unanimously supported a request by the President of Russia Vladimir Putin to deploy the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation to Ukraine in order to, first and foremost, protect Russian citizens and ethnic Russians from threats to their safety and their lives, to assist in returning the country to a state of normalcy and to bring the situation under control until the such a time as the normalization of the political situation in Ukraine is achieved.
2 March, 20:36
The US/NATO takeover of Ukraine, thought out and planned by the Neo-Conservative geopolitical architects and Zbignew Brezhinsky acolytes in the United States who have been driving the US policy of aggressive war and the destruction of countries since the events of 9-11, is not exactly going according to their plan for attaining complete global domination, uni-polarity and American hegemony.
2 March, 00:17
The very first act of the western-backed insurrectionists which represent a small percentage of the population and have managed to overthrow the government was to attempt rob Russian speakers in Ukraine of their language.
28 February, 07:01
The Hacktivist Group Anonymous Ukraine has been able to hack the e-mail accounts of the Udar Party as well as the electronic correspondence of the deputy head of the Ukrainian nationalist party, The Stepan Bandera Trident, one Andrey Tarasenko.
28 February, 00:40
The self serving spin is almost mind numbing in its complete twisting of the facts as the western press reports that in a telephone conversation on Tuesday US President Barrack Hussein Obama "warned his Afghan counterpart Hamid Karzai that the US may pull all of its troops out of his country by the year's end." First of all the statement flies in the face of the fact that the US/NATO are supposed to (not may) leave Afghanistan this year.
27 February, 11:48
With social programs, education, medical insurance and all forms of social aid and assistance being cut in the United States and the people losing their jobs and homes and being forced to pay more and more taxes, the outlook for the future is grim for the common people.
27 February, 07:22
In March 1999, at the direction of the United States of America, NATO engaged in its first act of illegal aggressive war, beginning what can only be called the “dark age of intervention” in which we are living today. The fact that NATO was allowed to get away with the aggression on Serbia and Montenegro emboldened US/NATO and the US military industrial intelligence banking complex and since that day, under a doctrine of Responsibility to Protect, Humanitarian Interventionism, Preventive War and then the all encompassing “War on Terror”, US/NATO have proceeded to destroy country after country and do away with leaders that they have not found to be submissive enough to their will.
27 February, 05:44
The level of information warfare about what is going on in Ukraine is currently at the highest level. The West and its interests have a narrative of the events in Ukraine that has been carefully thought and planned. This is also true of all of the actions of the so called opposition in Ukraine, who were carefully instructed, trained and are being controlled and funded by forces outside of Ukraine who seek to see a certain scenario played out to the end.
26 February, 23:00
After NATO military aggression against the former Fedral Republic of Yugoslavia ended in 1999 and after the establishment of the US/NATO Camp Bondsteel military base, American military bases began sprouting up all over Eastern Europe like mushrooms after a drenching rain.
26 February, 03:58
A coup d’état has occurred in Ukraine and all of the signs and even the actors behind it were known to the world before it happened. Before the democratically elected president went into hiding and the parliament was taken over by western puppets and neo-nazi [sic] thugs we all knew what the western geopolitical architects were planning on their chessboard.
25 February, 19:27
It is unprecedented that simultaneously three countries that are allies of Russia are being threatened by color revolutions: Venezuela, the Bosnian and the Serb Republic (The Republika Srpska) and Ukraine.
24 February, 00:05
23 February, 01:23
It is a fact that since 9-11-2001, the US Government has been in the business of destroying countries and using NATO as it principle instrument. That was stated more than a decade ago by then US Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz and later by General Wesley Clark. The Pentagon drew up a list of 7 states that were to be destroyed: Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Syria and they have systematically proceeded to destroy all of the Countries on the list. The strategy in Ukraine is the same, US/NATO/EU are promoting the destabilization and the breakup of Ukraine in order to achieve the NATO goal of moving into Ukrainian territory closer to Russia. Harvard Professor Francis Boyle, a US based Russian expert who was invited to the Soviet Union to lecture spoke on these issues and more in an interview with the Voice of Russia.
22 February, 19:57
NATO’s first act of illegal "humanitarian" aggressive war called "Operation Deliberate Force" in 1995 against the Republic Srpska which it got away with and emboldened it to later carry out "Operation Allied Force", the merciless brutal air campaign against civilian targets in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. The fact that NATO was allowed to get away with these acts of aggressive war and that the US/NATO architects were allowed to carry out such scenarios emboldened the "alliance" even further and has led to the recent global expansion by NATO and the scores of "regime change" and "resource wars" presented as "humanitarian interventions". The scenario is almost identical every time and is currently being played out in Ukraine. On the 15 year anniversary of the aggression on Yugoslavia, in an exclusive interview, the Voice of Russia spoke to the last Foreign Minister of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia Živadin Jovanović.
21 February, 23:38
A monstrous crime is being committed in Ukraine right before the eyes of the world and the western media is helping to cover it up and distract the attention of the entire world from the core fact that the events in Ukraine are not a popular uprising but a carefully orchestrated synthetic coup d’état brought about by long entrenched western color revolution infrastructure that was installed by US/NATO/EU to bring about the illegal act of regime change on the sovereign country of Ukraine.
21 February, 18:00
With the release of a recent conversation between the US Ambassador to Ukraine and Victoria Nuland plotting the downfall of the current legitimate elected government in Kiev, it is clear who is behind the attempted coup in Ukraine. US backed "activists" with sniper rifles and hand guns are openly firing on police something that would not be tolerated anywhere in the world but which is being portrayed by western leaders as being legitimate opposition protest behavior. However such cold-blooded murder would lead to brains being swept off the street in their cities. According to Voice of Russia regular Rick Rozoff, who spoke on these issues, what we are color revolution techniques in action and the western media is playing along as a propaganda tool for those behind the scenes.
20 February, 23:00
More documents supplied by Edward Snowden have proven the UK's signals intelligence agency GCHQ and the NSA have been monitoring and gathering information about everyone that has visited the Wikileaks website and supporters and anyone associated with WikiLeaks. In an interview with the Voice of Russia Kristinn Hrafnsson reveals that WikiLeaks was classified as a "malicious foreign actor" which allows western spy agencies to target the organization and even simple visitors in the same aggressive manner that they can target terrorists, this includes US nationals.
20 February, 22:39
The US Government and their war on journalism has taken a new and dangerous twist, now the US and its surrogates have taken the unprecedented move of going after the lawyers. Recently Jesselyn Radack, an attorney for Edward Snowden was detained at Heathrow airport in the UK, the same airport that has detained many journalists and associates connected to WikiLeaks and the Snowden case.
19 February, 21:38
The conversation that was leaked on the Internet between Victoria Nuland, the US Assistant Secretary of State, and the US Ambassador to Ukraine clearly and unarguable proves and demonstrates the US interfering with and in fact manipulating the political events in a sovereign country on its own territory. The rare look at the real workings of US color revolution architects blatantly shows the relationship between the puppeteers and the puppets. In an interview on the construction and implementation of color revolutions Stephan Karganovic, the President of the Srebrenica Historical Project, discussed these issues and much more.
18 February, 10:00
In a continuation of a discussion on the construction and implementation of color revolutions, something that is topical and alarming to people in countries targeted for regime change by the US, Stephan Karganovic the President of the Srebrenica Historical Project, and an expert on the issue, discusses the recent fabricated uprising in Bosnia and also in Ukraine.
17 February, 22:13
The color revolution that is being carried out in Ukraine is not the only recent attempt to overthrow a government by western architects, color revolution architecture was also recently activated in Bosnia-Herzegovina by groups using the giveaway OTPOR symbol.
16 February, 23:13
It is a subject that is largely debated while at the same time being quietly pushed onto page 23 but global warming and rising sea levels are topics that affect all of us and are issues we must all pay more attention to. It is however understandable that the issue is not given the importance that it should be because the key cause of global warming is the combustion of fossil fuels and our civilization is driven and dependent on fossil fuels.
16 February, 04:07
hundreds of years ago and it was their ignorance and insane, godless lust for riches which were not theirs which drove them to commit the worst genocide in the history of mankind. This hollow, selfish and vicious greed continues to drive the western world and continues to destroy our one and only planet, Earth.
14 February, 22:57
The situation in Ukraine continues to escalate as the western-backed Ukrainian opposition becomes militarized and grows bolder and more violent in their attempts to overthrow the government. It has been clear for some time that what is taking place in Ukraine can in no way be called civil unrest or a popular uprising, what is taking place is a clear western-backed-insurrection and an attempt to overthrow the government by force. The recent killing of a judge for passing a minor sentence on "oppositionists" who attempted to storm a government building shows that soon the government will have no choice but to use maximum force.
13 February, 19:30
The US has failed miserably in Afghanistan, the way they failed in Iraq, in Vietnam, and in dozens of other places and even though they are finally leaving with their tail between their legs, military "commanders" continue to make bold statements and try to put a positive spin on the fiasco that seem to be disconnected from reality and might cause the average person to question their competence.
12 February, 21:07
It is an already centuries old conspiracy of exploitation and theft beginning with the Catholic Church's Doctrine of Discovery that allowed Europeans to commit genocide against the indigenous peoples of the Americas and steal their lands and resources as long as the Church received a share of the spoils.

The Occupy Movement was poorly organized and had too many causes which fractured it and caused it fall apart. In the spring of 2014 there are plans for a revival of the Occupy Movement and according to one of the organizers of the Anonymous Million Mask March, Christine Ann Sands, the focus needs to be on the root of all of the evil and the heart of the corruption, namely the corporate bankers who control the media, the government and are promoting and getting rich off of the endless wars that the US has been waging.

Worldwide protests against NSA led mass surveillance are planned for November 11, 2014 in a protest billed by organizers as “The Day We Fight Back”. Although the protest actions are largely US based and even the countdown clock is timed to US Pacific Time, the on-line activities and protests will affect internet users worldwide as many of the world’s top sites are joining in.

Recent comments of a leaked conversation between US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland and the US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt in which Nuland said “F-the EU” are causing quite a resonance worldwide. During the conversation Nuland reveals US/UN/EU collusion in the overthrow of the Ukrainian Government. They openly and matter-of-factly discuss the overthrow of the elected government of Ukraine, who they are assigning to posts in the new US installed government and the use of the UN and Ban Ki-Moon as an extension of their plan and help the US “glue” their plan for Ukraine together.
10 February, 11:43
Last December Victoria Nuland returned to the US after handing out cookies and doughnuts to what can only be described as insurgents in Kiev’s Maidan Square and then returned to give a briefing in Washington to the US-Ukraine Foundation, during which she stated that the US has already “invested” $5 billion dollars in order to bring US “democracy” to Ukraine.

Through all of his work with WikiLeaks Julian Assange has been instrumental in bringing about a revolution in the way that people perceive the world and has made it possible to see actuality better than was previously possible. After over three years in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London Mr. Assange may be showing the wear of his confinement although he is well and welcoming to his guests. In an interview with the Voice of Russia John Shipton spoke about the conditions of Mr. Assange’s confined life and despite the admirable treatment of Mr. Assange by the Ecuadorians, revealed that Mr. Assange has not been outside for over three years and is forced to use special lamps and take vitamin D because of a lack of elementary sunshine. With regard to Russia and the asylum granted to Edward Snowden, Mr. Shipton praised the Russian authorities and President Putin and said the envy of Russia and the Slavic civilization by the West may be behind their continued anti-Russian stance.

It is an issue that has galvanized Native Americans, environmentalists, activists and even the Green Party and is not one that is going to go away as conveniently as the Obama Administration hopes it will. The Trans Canada Keystone XL (Export Limited) Pipeline, which will destroy and poison huge swathes of Indian lands and irreversibly pollute large parts of Alberta, Canada and the United States all the way to the Gulf of Mexico should also be galvanizing Canadians but they are for the large part silent. Will Obama and Washington politicians beholden to corporate and big oil interests do the right thing and say no to the pipeline? Not likely.

US broadcaster CNN, which for all intents and purposes has been leading the anti-Russia US propaganda effort to denigrate and attempt to take away Russia's prestige as the Russian Federation hosts the Olympic Games in Sochi is apparently stopping at nothing in their effort to insult Russia and the Russian people.
7 February, 11:06
President Putin and Foreign Minister Lavrov have wiped the floor with the West in every diplomatic scenario and for this reason the West is so determined and will stop at nothing to see the Olympics fail and continue demonizing Russia so that world opinion and Russia's prestige are damaged. This was stated by the Executive Officer of the WikiLeaks Party John Shipton, in an interview with the Voice of Russia. Mr. Shipton expects that President Putin and Foreign Minister Lavrov will silently wait for their opportunity to balance the field. He also believes that if you want to know what the western security services want one thing is to look at the work of hacks like Luke Harding which will show you which way the security services want you to look now. Mr. Shipton says that the only thing the West still has that works efficiently is the propaganda machine. He also says that countries in the FVEY have been able to monitor all of the financial transactions of terrorist organization that stretch from the end of the Philippines right up through to the Balkans, since 1985 and their lack of intervention clearly shows it serves their purposes. During the interview Mr. Shipton also reveals how the security service in Australia attempted to smear him by releases parts of recorded telephone conversations on the internet.

The Australian Navy has been conducting incursions into Indonesia's territorial waters, apparently, in an attempt to stop ships with refugees from reaching Australia. The Australian Government's crackdown on marginalized people, fleeing warzones and oppression shows the callousness that has poisoned the West. This was stated in an interview with the Voice of Russia by the former Head of the WikiLeaks Party and the Founder of the Australian Lawyers Alliance Mr. Greg Barns. He also stated that Australia’s Government has still not moved on protecting Julian Assange and is still a client of the US.
6 February, 13:23
For many Australians it is embarrassing the way the Australian Government blindly obeys whatever the US tells it to do. Even joining in the US’ illegal wars. The scorched earth policy of divide and conquer, decimate and destroy, destabilize and control is in stark contrast to the efforts of the Russian Federation, the BRICS and SCO countries. In an exclusive interview with the Voice of Russia, John Shipton, the Executive Officer of the WikiLeaks Party in Australia gave his views on those issues and much more. Having just returned from a fact finding mission to Syria Mr. Shipton praised Russian diplomatic skills and Russian President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, whose efforts he called triumphs, second to none. Mr. Shipton and the WikiLeaks Party believe that the Russian President and Foreign Ministry are forces for peace. Peace which will allow development and growth. He contrasted these positive forces with the US and its allies who wish to restrict development so that they will have no competition. He called it a “phenomenon” that the US has destroyed 73 countries and killed 26 million people since 1945 and said is must stop.

Constant targets of Western media operations conducted by the special services are of course whistleblowers, Hacktivists, truth seekers, 9/11 truthers, anyone who is active in attempting to expose US and western government illegality and, due to his leaks and celebrity status, Edward Snowden, and everybody connected to him.

There is a complete and almost total media blackout at the illegal extra-territorial prison being maintained by the US at Guantanamo Bay Cuba. Prisoners who have been there for more than a decade being held in conditions amounting to torture without charge and without trial have lost all hope and for over a year have been on a hunger strike attempting to end the torture they are being forced to live through day after day and year after year. The torture of having no recourse, no rights and no hope. Rather than letting these men end their own misery and starve themselves to death to end their misery, the US is force feeding them using a procedure that can only be described as torture. Famous Peace Activist Medea Benjamin spoke to the Voice of Russia and revealed that the hunger strikes continue.
2 February, 23:42
At the beginning of the US war on terror, and even to this day, the US literally kidnapped "suspects" and took them to countries where the could torture and even kill suspects. This practice of kidnapping and usually flying suspects around the world and then torturing or killing them in countries with poor human rights records or brutal regimes happened so much that the practice soon became known to all and the name for it "extraordinary rendition" became a household word.
1 February, 22:31
As the Olympic games approach the American media just cannot seem to get enough of demonizing Russia and rolling out their tired old stereotypes and continue to do so on such a scale that it should be getting ridiculous even for the people that the US media is apparently writing for, namely the under informed and non too worldly. One thing is sure however when the demonizing of other countries starts, especially Russia, you can have no doubt that there are serious problems at home and a distraction is desperately needed. Normally, as history has shown, a new humanitarian resource war is begun on some far off poor little country as was planned in Syria, but alas launching the Hellfires was not to be. So they pull out all of the old tired Cold War clichés and xenophobic stereotypes and sling the falsehoods, half-truths and lies like only the American Murdoch owned media can.
1 February, 01:54
There is so much missing or purposefully obfuscated in the debate about NSA/Five Eyes spying, US Government illegality, CIA collusion with al-Qaeda, Guantanamo, 9/11, torture, drones, Afghanistan, Iraq and everything that millions of people have been outraged about for over a decade, but the most striking is that almost no one is proposing closing these organizations down and few are talking about prosecuting those responsible.

The US relationship with the Saudis appears to be changing and even though several decades ago Saudi agreed to sell the US oil at $10 a barrel in perpetuity, the love affair appears to be over. According to former MI5 officer and whistleblower David Shayler there may be plans to change the official story of 9/11 and the US start pointing the finger at Saudi Arabia. Mr. Shayler believes the way to stop all of the illegality being committed by agencies such as CIA, NSA, MI6 and GCHQ is to simply stop funding them.
31 January, 12:03
Throughout history the Olympics have been a celebration of sport and a time when even warring nations lay down their arms and settle their differences on the playing field. It has been a time when all nations regardless of their geo-political leanings, internal conflicts or spats with their neighbors have a chance to put aside differences and celebrate human advances and achievements in sports.

The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin has completed a summit meeting between the Russian Federation and the European Union which President Putin has summarized as being constructive and held in an open and business-like manner. Moscow has given the summit positive marks on many fronts. According to the Kremlin the meeting was held at the request of the EU. The following report and commentary is by the VOR’s John Robles.

The amount of money that the US Government has poured into Afghanistan on non-military aid is approaching $100 billion yet children are starving and the country is completely decimated. The US agencies that are supposed to implement development projects are completely incapable of carrying out their missions due to corruption and a complete lack of oversight. In an interview with the Voice of Russia’s John Robles three time Nobel Peace Prize nominee Kathy Kelly, who recently completed her twelfth stay in Afghanistan said she would not recommend that US agencies that are supposed to be involved in development work be given the authority or the funds to provide assistance because their abysmal track records. Ms. Kelly believes the reason the US wants to maintain a militarily presence in Afghanistan may be a US interest in controlling the pricing and flow of precious resources found in Afghanistan. When asked whether opium was one of these resources Ms. Kelly agreed that at this point that appears to be true.

After 9/11 we were bombarded day and night with propaganda about terrorist plots to blow up the world and carry out massive terrorist attacks, yet most of these attacks were simply false creations or "figments of the intelligence agencies’ imaginations", or "agent provocateur" operations which had been created by the intelligence agencies themselves. According to Craig Murray, the former UK Ambassador to Uzbekistan, terrorism has become a major industry. The military industrial complex and the arms industry are making huge amounts of money off of the West’s wars which are for the most part motivated by the needs of the oil and gas industries to make lots of money as well. During his time as UK Ambassador to Uzbekistan Mr. Murray witnessed many horrendous things including over 127 one way rendition flights and false flag attacks blamed on al-Qaeda by the Uzbek Security Services and the CIA. With great candor and honesty the former ambassador retells some of his story to the Voice of Russia’s John Robles and inadvertently delivers several bombshells. With regard to NSA spying he says GCHQ and the NSA are one organization.
28 January, 16:26
Obama’s lies on Guantanamo are hurting people worldwide. For the families of the human beings held without trial or charge indefinitely it is an agony to hear Obama promise to close the illegal prison and then get their hopes up only to be dashed again and again. The US corporate/government controlled media is not helping bring an end to the situation and even reports of the hunger strike that continues is not talked about in the US media. According to the founder and director of CodePink Medea Benjamin, most Americans do not even know the illegal prison is still open. In an interview with the Voice of Russia’s John Robles, Ms. Benjamin retells the story of the 12-year-old daughter of Shaker Aamer, who has never seen her father, and who finally was able to talk to him through the Red Cross, only to see he was too weak to even pick up his head because of the ongoing hunger strike. Ms. Benjamin says the lawyers are enraged at Obama but he gets away with whatever he wants because the US mainstream media is complicit in the illegal policies of the Obama Administration.

The situation in Ukraine is a fluid one and changing by the hour. Although it had appeared that there was a resolution to the protests that had broken out after the government of Ukraine had made the sovereign decision of sticking with Russia and saying no to closer European Union integration, excessive violence from the western backed opposition has spread like a wave throughout the country. The so called Ukrainian “opposition” now resembles something more akin to armed insurgents in Syria involved in a coup d’état than opposition protestors. The situation in Ukraine once again underlines US hypocrisy. The US, which prides itself on protecting its police, supports an “opposition” which is threatening, attacking, kidnapping and setting young police officers on fire. The scene currently playing out in Ukraine has all of the signs of a foreign engineered regime change operation and with the taking of government buildings, has unarguably moved into a scenario where the continuity of the state is in question. Voice of Russia regular and NATO expert Rick Rozoff discussed all of these issues and more as the situation threatens to spin out of control.

A former pilot who had admitting to working for the CIA in the Iran Contra affair and had written several books investigating the events of 9-11, was found dead along with his children in what many are calling a Black Operations hit, including former US National Security Agency Officer Wayne Madsen. In an interview with the Voice of Russia’s John Robles Mr. Madsen says the author was working on his fourth book which he said would expose information that would be a bombshell and blow 9-11 wide open. The author had been told that the key to solving 9-11 was at the “Boneyard” (the Marana Air Field) in the US state of Arizona.
27 January, 10:55
Throughout history states have risen and fallen and those that have risen and prospered have successfully understood and dealt with the threats to state security that were prevalent in their times. In the post 9-11 world we are faced with a new paradigm that the events of 9-11 were manipulated to bring about. Therefore it is of ultimate importance for the peaceful nations of the world to understand exactly who was behind those events. It is already clear who has benefitted and who has manipulated the events to engage in a plethora of activities that amount to crimes against peace and crimes against all humanity. Those actors have plunged our world into a lawless paradigm where the biggest threat to the states of the world today is not terrorism but those who would use terrorism and the threat of terrorism to bring about their own ends and in the extreme facilitate the destruction of states and the overthrowing of governments.

Since its creation in 1949, NATO has gone from an organization founded to protect against an imaginary self-conceived attack by the USSR to a global aggressive attack organization. In the final installment of a 2013 year-end-summary interview with the Voice of Russia's John Robles, Rick Rozoff, the owner of the Stop NATO website and international mailing list, discusses the moves by the alliance and what they are planning for the future. According to Mr. Rozoff the alliance was stopped dead in its tracks in Syria in 2013, an event that may portend peace in the future and an end to the US/NATO aggressive wars.

What the military industrial complex in the US learned from Yugoslavia was that they could fight an entire war and not lose a single soldier. This emboldened those who use war as a means to advance the interests of the empire, but the Empire feeds off the Republic for its financing and as a source for cannon fodder and the Republic is now in decay and falling apart. According to Dr. Michael Parenti, an expert and outspoken critic of the “Empire” the empire is stronger and better funded than ever. The solution for the people of the Republic if they want to achieve victory over the plutocracy, those whose interests are represented by Dick Cheney, George Bush and Barack Obama, and take their country back is to organize and find strong leaders who can lead the fight says Dr. Parenti.

With an overwhelming majority vote of 388 out of 450, the Russian State Duma passed a resolution slamming foreign politicians and forces interfering in what is now an escalating political crisis in Ukraine between protestors and law enforcement. The Crimean Parliament has also issued a statement in an emergency session.

Official Moscow is continuing its efforts to bring about a peaceful resolution to the conflict in Syria and which is one that is based on the sovereign wishes of the Syrian people. Since the beginning of the conflict in Syria Moscow has maintained the position that the situation in Syria is an internal one and must be solved peacefully and without outside interference.

While Obama has pretended to address the issue of mass surveillance, in a recent speech which some had expected would be filled with promises to reign in the massive US spying apparatus, Obama said absolutely nothing tangible and was blasted by privacy advocates, whistleblowers and a plethora of interested parties, experts and pundits.
22 January, 16:00
In an interview with the Voice of Russia unconfirmed reports were received regarding a popular uprising of former "Green" forces in Libya. The speakers claimed that the Green forces have liberated the entire south of the country from Al-Qaeda and its affiliated groups and that Libyan embassies abroad have begun to fly green flags over their compounds. James and Joanne Moriarty and Ahmed Muftah are all representatives of the tribes of Libya and in this interview they relate how the tribal people of Libya are fighting Al-Qaeda and taking their country back and state that more than 95% of the Libyan people are against the currently installed puppet government.

The outspoken new leader of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis has sent a message to the global financial elites gathered in Davos Switzerland for the annual World Economic Forum, an event where the richest of the rich and the world’s financial and political leaders gather to discuss pressing world issues and work out strategies and form alliances to ensure the status quo is maintained and that their businesses continue to grow, expand and profit.

One of the purposes of the security services of any country is to stop the enemies of the state but some countries become obsessed with the task and neglect their mission to protect the country itself. One of the ways that the intelligence services deal with opponents is through the spread of disinformation and lies about those it deems to be enemies. Former MI-5 officer David Shayler, a UK whistleblower who exposed a plot by MI-6 to assassinate the late Muammar Gaddafi, spoke to the Voice of Russia’s John Robles about the ways that intelligence services demonize whistelblowers and perceived enemies as well as the current state of Freemasonry and other topical issues not usually covered by the press.
21 January, 06:56
The speech on intelligence reform and NSA spying by US president Barack Obama was one in which nothing was said but which was designed to create a strong psychological impact with its visuals. Former United Kingdom Ambassador and rendition death whistleblower Craig Murray stated: “it was like Hitler at a Nuremberg Rally. I have never seen so many national flags of one country behind a single speaker. It was a kind of an exercise in extreme nationalism, rather than an intellectual speech.” Mr. Murray stated that Obama merely continued the US insistence that they have the right to spy on everybody. With regard to the US expansion of the Magnitsky List Mr. Murray said the creation of the list reveals the mindset in the United States that still regards Russia as an enemy. The US continues to demonize Russia but does nothing against countries like Bahrain which shoots people dead for demonstrating, tortures women and children, gasses people and imprisons doctors and nurses. The Magnitsky List is a peculiar piece of exceptionalism which reveals a scary Cold War mentality from a country that does nothing to address far worse human rights abuses taking place around the world.

The ongoing long-running drug war in Mexico has taken a new turn as citizens begin to take matters into their own hands in order to finally be rid of the murderous drug gangs that have taken over large swaths of the country. Armed vigilante groups first began to pop at the beginning of 2013 all over Mexico and this past week one such group clashed not with the ruthless narco-killers running the government linked drug cartels, but with Mexican troops backed by none other than US President Barack Hussein Obama. In the incident which left as many as a dozen dead, the civilians in the town of Antenuz in the Mexican state of Michoacán did not have a chance against the heavily armed US trained Mexican forces. After it was over there were bloody bodies lining the streets and the dead included an 11-year-old girl.
20 January, 04:52
According to dozens of independent sources and principals close to the Edward Snowden affair the US Government and its proxies and agents are continuing their campaign against Edward Snowden and have on multiple occasions either released or distorted information which has appeared in the media and has been designed to damage his relationship with the Russian Federation. Recent reports that Mr. Snowden had one point seven million files that detailed current military operations were a complete fabrication and an attempt to continue to persecute Mr. Snowden and portray him as a traitor rather than a whistleblower. Jessylyn Raddack, former US Justice Department whistleblower and Edward Snowden’s legal advisor spoke to the Voice of Russia’s John Robles and discussed these issues and more.
18 January, 09:25
20-20 hindsight is something we all may have in retrospect but something that at times may be more difficult to attain when there are concerted efforts at obfuscation and twisting the truth. This was the case with the invasion by Georgia of the restive enclave of South Ossetia, an area populated almost entirely by ethnic Russians who held Russian citizenship. We now know, thanks to the untiring efforts of individuals such as eminent NATO expert Rick Rozoff, the entire invasion was a move to evict Russian peacekeepers and settle a “territorial dispute” so that Georgia could join NATO. Sadly for tie-eating-Georgian-leader Mihail Sakashvili Russia defended its citizens and things did not work out as his US instructors had promised. In a long 2013 end of the year summary with the Voice of Russia, long time NATO expert and anti-NATO activist Rick Rozoff details those facts and sheds light on where the alliance is headed in the coming year and onward.
17 January, 08:38
Due to clerical errors in filing the proper documents, something which exists in all governments at one time or the other, some police in Afghanistan have not received their salaries since November. The Afghan authorities have reported that the issue is being taken care of and that Afghanistan’s law enforcement personnel will be receiving their full salaries and back pay soon. Those are the facts but of course the US/NATO occupiers have to twist them to meet their own ends.
16 January, 23:20
Staged suicides, demonization and set ups are just part of the way that CIA and those responsible for 9-11 continue to cover their tracks. In an interview with the Voice of Russia ex-NSA analyst Wayne Madsen discusses the staged suicide of the late 9-11 author and pilot Philip Marshal and the ties of the Bush family to the CIA and 9-11. Mr. Madsen connects the dots of all of the facts in a way that no one else can and the result is a damning picture of an out of control government run by an illegal and criminal network of evil-doers who will stop at nothing to protect themselves and their amassed power and wealth. From ties to Nazi gold, and a family fortune based on it to positions in the CIA, Madsen details some of the connections that the Bush clan has with the introduction of American fascism.
16 January, 20:04
It has been revealed that European security personnel and intelligence agents have been in active contact and in fact holding meetings with Syrian intelligence and other unspecified officials since at least the middle of the summer of 2013. A period directly before the US push to invade the country.
16 January, 19:34
The director of the FBI recently cited Americans recruited by Al-Qaeda in Syria as the next terrorist threat to America. However with the almost 13 years of meddling in the Middle East, the dozens of revelations of US and CIA involvement with Al-Qaeda in places such as Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt and the fact that there has not been a single clear terrorist attack in the US since 9-11, there appears to be a credibility gap that is growing by the day. Is the threat real? Or is it just another attempt to keep people in fear and allow for more funds to be diverted to those who are profiting from the endless war on terror?
14 January, 12:25
It has been 12 shameful years since the opening of the extra-judicial Guantanamo Bay prison and the US continues to illegally hold 155 men indefinitely in violation of every basic human right. Despite the Obama Administration and the US Government classifying everything about the illegal location, so the world community does not know what is really going on, news continues to seep out. In an interview with the Voice of Russia Medea Benjamin, who has been fighting for the rights of the people at Guantanamo almost since day one, reveals that the hunger strikes continue. The US wants to continue to hold these people because they do not want the world to know what they have done to the prisoners there. Treatment such as that received by Omar Deghayes who had a guard try to gouge out both of his eyes and was left blind is not something Obama wants the world to hear about.
14 January, 08:59
Recently information was being spread that Edward Snowden had 1.7 million files detailing current and ongoing US military operations around the world. After a little digging and some phone calls it became clear that the 1.7 million claim is false as is the military operations claim. After investigating the claim and going right to the source, a legal advisor in close contact with Mr. Snowden and the journalists releasing the Snowden revelations, it became apparent the false information leaked by the US Government was an attempt to damage Mr. Snowden and his relationship with Russia. Snowden’s legal advisor Jesselyn Radack told the Voice of Russia’s John Robles that the actual number of files was 55,000 and that it was the first time she had heard that they pertain to military and JSOC operations. Ms. Radack said it was a campaign against Mr. Snowden as were recent claims of an asylum request sent to Brazil. Edward Snowden is acclimating to his new home in Russia and is grateful to have asylum from Russia and is not attempting to go to another country.
14 January, 07:12
On the surface it appears that US/NATO lost in Afghanistan. But did they? According to US/NATO’s own assessments and statements Afghanistan has proven to be the testing ground for developing interoperability between NATO members and over 50 nations which provided military forces for the ongoing war in Afghanistan and the consolidation of an international military strike force. Heroin production has also increased 40 fold and has devastated the peoples of many countries while providing black monies for secret operations. There are reports that there is a possible drug route from Afghanistan, through the air base in Manas in Kirgizstan and into the Balkans, probably Kosovo, which is used to get Afghan opium and heroin to market with Hashim Thaçi directly implicated. According to Voice of Russia regular contributor Rick Rozoff, the lack of oversight of US military installations, such as Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo, makes it possible, if the US wants, to place even tactical nuclear weapons closer to the Russian or Iranian border. In part 2 of a 2013 year end summary Mr. Rozoff discusses those issues and more and cites Russian and Chinese moves to prevent an invasion of Syria as a major historical turning point.
13 January, 17:24
In the coming year the activities of US/NATO in the Arctic, Africa, Eastern Europe and Asia will be of particular interest as the US/NATO continues to attempt to expand globally into a historically unprecedented military power unto itself. Voice of Russia regular Rick Rozoff spoke about these issues and more in an end of the year interview in which he recapped the previous years’ events and forecast what is to come. According to Mr. Rozoff the key reason for pulling Ukraine into the EU is to eventually ensnare it in NATO and evict Russia’s Black Sea Fleet.
13 January, 15:00
According to the National Society of Engineers of America 60% of the roads and bridges in America are falling apart and there is no money to fix them, something which will lead to a complete collapse of transportation infrastructure. Unemployment, under-employment, the loss of jobs and the non-creation of new jobs are also extremely serious problems which are not being address by the government or the corporations and the military industrial complex which controls it. These issues are reaching a crisis level, however the US still has trillions to spend on surveillance and the military industrial complex.
11 January, 18:04
In a review of NATO and US military activity for the year 2013, Voice of Russia regular Rick Rozoff stated that 2013 saw a slowing of, if not the beginning of a reversal of a 22 year US/NATO/Western drive to assert global dominance economically, politically, culturally and militarily. Among the most important events of the last year, if not the last 20, was the stopping of the invasion of Syria by Russia. According to Mr. Rozoff as US/NATO “slinks away with its tail between its legs” from Afghanistan, the only accomplishment they can claim after 13 years of occupation is that opium cultivation has increased by 40 fold. The military monolith of NATO is having a bad time of late and no matter what they say, the fact of the matter is, they have failed. This is part one of a much longer year end interview with Mr. Rozoff.

There are so many serious issues concerning the spread of induced hydraulic fracturing or hydrofracturing (fracking) and so many reasons why it should be stopped completely or strictly regulated as more and more becomes known regarding the long-term impact on the planet and so much false propaganda being spread about the practice that it is difficult to choose where to begin attempting to formulate an intelligent presentation of the issue. However the long term dangers are so great to the international community and out very planet that the issue must be looked at at the highest levels and a moratorium if not an all out ban on the process must be implemented.

Approximately a decade ago the US NSA did not exist and the acronym was said to stand for “No Such Agency”, that has all changed and we know now that every time we do anything electronically, no matter where we are in the world, whether it be going on-line, paying for something electronically or using our cell phones the NSA is most likely recording everything we do. An ex-member of the NSA named Wayne Madsen spoke to the Voice of Russia and gave us some details about the inner workings of NSA. Mr. Madsen reveals that the NSA has had relationships with not only US allies but with countries such as the Islamic Republic of Iran and the People’s Republic of China.

With the fall of Fallujah to Al-Qaeda affiliated terrorist group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, many veterans of the Iraq war and the massive fighting that took place in Fallujah during the US occupation are beginning to realize that their sacrifice and the ultimate sacrifice paid by many of their comrades was completely and totally for nothing, and for many veterans that is a truly hard pill to swallow.
8 January, 18:21
One of the ways that western imperialists justify their military expansion and conquering country after is by putting on a “messianic front” and demonizing countries that follow independent policies. The US and the West use pretexts such as mass killings to launch attacks under the flag of fighting “humanitarian” wars paired with demonization to stop leaders like Milošević, Gaddafi, Hussein and Assad while at the same time supporting some of the worst dictators and leaders in history. According to well-known scholar Dr. Michael Parenti, the US would support the devil himself and has absolutely no virtue whatsoever, not even supporting its own people! To the US/West there are only two kinds of countries: satellites and enemies. Any country that is independent and can shut out the US and Western plutocracy gets in the way of profits and dominance and has to be destroyed. Dr. Parenti says there is a class war going on to make the world safe for global capitalism. It is disguised behind things like security, democratic elections, humanitarian wars, genocide and terrorism, but in reality it is world war of domination.

Recent news that the United Kingdom may in fact be arming or assisting in weapons deliveries to Somali pirates should be of great concern not only to the companies and individuals who have paid millions upon millions of dollars to the pirates to secure the release of ships, cargoes and crews, but also to all of the governments, including that of the Russian Federation, that have also spent millions and risked lives while engaged in anti-piracy missions in the Gulf of Aden and other pirate-infested waters off the coast of Africa and Somalia.

There are different categories of state sponsored terrorist attacks, but almost all of them are carried out with one goal in mind, namely as a pretext by a state for the beginning of a war. The events of 9-11 are no different and if one looks at all of the evidence that exists related to the events of 9-11, it is clear that statesmen were involved. Author, researcher and expert on state-sponsored terrorism, Len Bracken, who lost a relative who was also seeking the truth as to the events of 9-11, spoke to the Voice of Russia about the events of 9-11 and the different types of state sponsored terrorism.

The prosecution of the Guardian and other news outlets for publishing the truth about US Government illegality has a chilling effect on the press and journalists. The US has declared a war on journalists and truth seekers and in light of the extreme way that the UK has followed the US’ lead, the American lawyer for Julian Assange and WikiLeaks, Michael Ratner, is recommending that people involved in exposing UD Government illegality not go to the UK because at minimum they risk being detained for up to nine hours (if they cooperate), questioned without a right to a lawyer and possibly facing terrorism charges. In an interview with the Voice of Russia, Mr. Ratner said it was interesting that they haven’t touched the lawyers yet and stated that there is a real struggle going on between governments and private corporations who want to both surveil people and keep information secret and the people who want to expose their illegality and believe in democracy needs truth. According to Mr. Ratner the US Government is losing and “the forces of light certainly seem to be pushing back heavily against government’s forces of darkness”.

The high point of the American Empire has passed and mercifully we have emerged intact from the 20 very dangerous years during which the United States was the sole superpower in the world. We must never allow ourselves to endure that trial again. Power in the world is now passing to the East, to China, to Russia and to other rising nations as the United States is an aging tiger whose teeth are falling out. This was stated in an interview which outspoken and brutally honest British MP George Galloway granted to the Voice of Russia's John Robles. With regard to US surrogate NATO which is circling both Russia and China with bases and nuclear weapons, he labeled it an "imperial war machine" and called it "the greatest danger to peace and security in the world." Mr. Galloway was also candid on his assessment of Saudi Arabia which he called a "gangster state" with Prince Bandar acting as chief capo who delivers severed horse's heads into the bed of whomsoever they wish to intimidate. As for Ukraine Mr. Galloway put the situation into stark perspective by saying: "Can you imagine what would happen if President Putin went to the streets of Toronto on street demonstrations whipping up anti-American feeling, in neighboring country. And yet this is precisely what is happening on the front line in Kiev now," he added; again President Putin has again played a masterful diplomatic game. As for declining US hegemony he stated: "… they are losing and losing and losing. … they are losing because their power is waning, because hard power is waning, their financial power is defunct and their soft power, their cultural power is virtually non-existent. Anyone who takes a look at John McCain and thinks that that is a cultural soft power icon to desire, to head towards, would need their head examined. This is knuckle-dragging, low grade moronic culture," he stated.

Among the illegal activities that the NSA is currently engaged in on the internet is site jamming. According to 12 year NSA veteran Wayne Madsen the NSA is also actively spying on NGOs and human rights organizations as the attempt to monitor every type of communication that exists all over the world. Joining the NSA and their SIGINT alliance called FVEY are another 35 countries that routinely allow the NSA to access their networks and assist the NSA in spying on their own citizens. Surprisingly one of these countries is Germany which was recently surprised and outraged that the NSA was spying on Chancellor Angela Merkel. During the interview with John Robles, Mr. Madsen also had the chance to defend himself after a vicious attack from US neo-conservatives caused an interview he gave to the UK Observer to be pulled because Mr. Madsen was critical of Obama.

US "missile defense" is the key element in US first-strike attack planning. After the US launches a first-strike attack against a country like Russia or China they want to ensure that there is no retaliation, in effect guaranteeing a successful first-strike attack. This was stated by Bruce Gagnon the Coordinator for the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space in an interview with the Voice of Russia. Mr. Gagnon is an expert in US weapons system and proliferation and has been an activist against militarization for decades. He also said that the US needs to stop spending trillions on weapons and start using the money to help deal with the reality of climate change as well as improve infrastructure if we are to have a future for our children and our grandchildren. He also reminded us of the teaching of the native Americans who believed that every decision we make has to be based on the impact to the next seven generations.

Almost the entirety of the facts regarding the US invasion and “involvement” in Afghanistan raise serious questions as to the real intentions that the US had in invading the country in the first place and what they have done there since. The questions are many, some that are impossible to answer, some that have been answered and brushed under the carpet and still others that are not be answered or even asked, with anyone attempting to do so facing a violent reaction or concerted backlash. Among these questions is why has opium production increased after 12 years of US/NATO occupation?

With regard to Syria, President Vladimir Putin, in the words of George Galloway, "played a blinder" and prevented a cataclysm for the entire world an accomplishment more than worthy of a Nobel Peace Prize. Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was also instrumental in preventing the evisceration of the Syrian people and Syria and also had a "great year". Outspoken defender of rule of law, sovereignty and the rights of the people, British MP George Galloway, spoke with the Voice of Russia about these issues and more. Calling US President Obama an "empty raincoat", he blasted Obama’s hypocrisy and callousness with regard to his attitude to the mothers of children who are "eviscerated by Hellfire Missiles" under Obama’s illegal and extra-judicially murder by drone of people around the world.
26 December 2013, 03:21
The most obvious and easily provable discrepancy in the official version with regard to the collapse of the World Trade Center buildings on September 11, 2013 lies in the way the buildings "collapsed". Not only, for the first time in the history of the world, did three steel-framed skyscrapers collapse into their own footprints from fires, but they did so through the path of maximum resistance; something unheard of. Even more alarming is the fact that WTC 7 collapsed due to small fires even though no "aircraft hit" had occurred or any other major damage. Worse still is the fact that the owner of the WTC, Larry Silverstein, admitted on-camera that he "gave the order to pull", a fact corroborated by none other than now US Secretary of State John Kerry. David Connor spoke to the Voice of Russia about these matters and the structural aspects of the WTC buildings.
25 December 2013, 02:33
Part of the Islamic faith and a concept shared by some conservative Christians is the “notion of opposing usury”, an aspect of the wars in the Middle East that is often under looked along with the fact that what are now referred to as “paper bankers” will do anything to prevent the emergence of a gold based currency or a move away from the US dollar for conducting international trade, in particular trade in oil. Dr. Kevin Barrett recently spoke to the Voice of Russia and gave his candid, no-holds-barred assessment of the real situation in the Middle East. He warned that one day the Muslim world will wake up and insist on precious metals based currency in exchange for their oil, something which will fundamentally change the economic structure of the world.
24 December 2013, 21:46
The United Kingdom has been co-opted by the United States to carry out illegal surveillance and spying on its own citizens and on European countries, their citizens and officials. According to UK Member of Parliament, George Galloway, the way that the UK spyies on and hacks the phones of European leaders, while being paid a very small amount, is a crime against the world. Mr. Galloway described the way imperial powers and capitalist countries pretend to maintain legality as "lipstick on a pig". In an interview with the Voice of Russia’s John Robles, Mr. Galloway also discussed his upcoming documentary, financed by donations from common UK citizens, titled "The Killing of Tony Blair" in which he will exposewhat he claims are heinous crimes committed by the former prime minister.
23 December 2013, 13:20
The United States continues to try to fool the world into believing that the Edward Snowden persecution is related to terrorism, when it is in fact related to US hegemony and power. This was the crux of a letter from Edward Snowden to the Brazilian people in which he asked for asylum in that country. The fact that the Russian Federation has given Edward Snowden asylum was an extraordinary noble act and one that has protected Mr. Snowden, according to Michael Ratner in an interview with the Voice of Russia. In part 2 Mr. Ratner also comments on a recent attempt by the US Government to further demonize Julian Assange which was published in the Washington Post.
23 December 2013, 07:37
In destroying country after country, the US Empire is doing well. One devastated country after the other has made it clear that any country which pursues independent sovereign policies and attempts to better its own position and the state of its people becomes a target for the US Empire. According to Dr. Michael Parenti, in an interview with the Voice of Russia; "… any leader who uses the resources, and labor, and substance of his country for the well-being and self-development in that country is seen as someone who is evil, has a hidden agenda, hostile toward America and is hostile toward the West." A term which he says really means the western plutocracy. Ukraine is a perfect example after having chosen a path of economic betterment which does not include US/EU/NATO, US backed "color-revolution" assets which have been left in place are being activated to cause another color revolution and more upheaval in that country. According to Dr. Parenti these people are: "… still so rabidly anti-communist, that even the residue of a shadow of a former Communist country is a little too much."

The illegal interrogation facility and indefinite detention prison camp at Guantanamo Bay continues to function as it has since the events of 9-11 and plans to build new facilities are still in place. Due to the illegality of the entire "operation" lawyers for the detainees have considered not taking part in the proceedings as doing so grants the prison credibility but they have decided that they cannot abandon the innocent people being held for more than a decade without charge and without due process. Michael Ratner, the lawyer for Julian Assange, whose Center for Constitutional Rights, and who personally represents many of the "inmates" at Guantanamo, spoke to the Voice of Russia and said that Guantanamo is "completely flatly illegal, it’s a rump court, it is a kangaroo court, and it is a charade", similar to what the Nazis did. He also called the illegal limbo of Guantanamo an outrage and said with regard to due process and human rights that the US, judicially speaking, is done.

With the restructuring of the Russian media there are many people worldwide who are hopeful that the changes will produce a balance and a counterweight to the 5 worldwide newswires that are controlled by the West and possess a true and barely transparent bias. The way in which private news agencies make news and information only accessible to governments and bodies and effectively lock out the common people is more like the selling and buying of intelligence. This control of information by the NSA, CIA and other private companies run by the intelligence services are all part of a new paradigm that Voice of Russia regular Rick Rozoff call “Information Totalitarianism”. Information should be free, and as WikiLeaks says: “Information wants to be free.”
19 December 2013, 22:51
Al-Qaeda, a group founded and organized to fight the Soviet Union in Afghanistan by the CIA, is just one of many Muslim extremist groups such as the Wahhabi, Salafi and Takfiri (which some would say are deviations from Islam) that the West has used to destabilize the Islamic world and destroy the enemies of Israel throughout the Middle East. The Arab Spring and all of the upheavals and invasions of countries in the Middle East are all part of a plan devised by neoconservatives from the Project for a New American Century (PNAC) to bring about global American hegemony and destroy the enemies of Israel, according to Dr. Kevin Barrett, who also stated in an interview with the Voice of Russia that the PNAC’s principle document "Rebuilding America’s Defenses" was the blueprint for 9-11 and simply a re-write of a document drawn up for Benjamin Netanyahu titled "The Clean Break".

Prior to a very productive and wide-ranging session of the Russian-Ukrainian Interstate Commission, the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin met with the President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych in the Kremlin, in a regularly scheduled meeting which takes place between the President of Russian and Ukraine prior to interstate consultations. The meeting between the Presidents and the bodies of government have underlined the inviolability and historic strength of Russian-Ukrainian relations and have mapped out steps for further cooperation and assistance, in particular to Ukraine, currently besieged by a US/NATO/EU attempt to force it into its own sphere of geopolitical influence.
18 December 2013, 00:35
Many of the leaders in the United States are beginning to realize that the policy of destroying countries in the Middle East for Israel is not really in the US’s best interests. Geopolitically the US would be better off dealing more diplomatically with Russia but they continue to attempt to surround Russia with nuclear weapons and try to achieve a first strike capacity while risking World War III. Doctor Kevin Barret, one of the first people to suffer at the hands of the US military industrial complex after speaking about and questioning 9-11, spoke to the Voice of Russia about all of these issues and more and places the blame for 9-11 on the neo-conservative Projest for the New American Century (PNAC) and Zionists who have infiltrated western security and intelligence services.
17 December 2013, 11:05
The Defense Ministry of the Russian Federation has confirmed reports regarding the deployment of a significant quantity of short-range Iskander-M (NATO classification "SS-26 Stone") tactical ballistic missile systems near Russian borders with Baltic states and countries that are members of NATO, including along borders shared with Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and at least 10 more complete Iskander-M systems into the Russian Baltic enclave of Kaliningrad, the westernmost territory of the Russian Federation.
17 December 2013, 05:45
Since the days of the Cold War the West has launched illegal wars against Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and attempted to do the same thing in Syria. They have been successful in avoiding blowback and responsibility due to their monopoly on the corporate controlled media and the fact that most of the media in the world passively accepts their interpretation of world events. This is one of the reasons that alternative media and foreign controlled media are important. For many people in the West, the only truth they can actually get comes increasingly from non-corporate and even “foreign” media sources. The Voice of Russia spoke to Rick Rozoff on media and the current paradigm where journalism has lost the honor and ideals it once had.
16 December 2013, 04:20
For the US/NATO Iran was the excuse for the missile shield that is being deployed to encircle Russia and North Korea is the pretense being used to encircle China. In both cases these are sheer fabrications and the recent agreement with Iran and NATO’s refusal to stop their missile installations with a new pretext of 30 countries that are a threat proves this fact. NATO’s claims are simply propaganda. NATO expansion into Ukraine, Finland, Georgia and other countries is clearly being done to encircle Russia with the end goal being destroying and Balkanizing Russia. Longtime worldwide peace activist Bruce Gagnon spoke to the Voice of Russia on these issues and more.
15 December 2013, 22:10
Today what we are seeing in Ukraine are the now overt manifestations of a long-running covert subversion of Ukraine by all of the instruments used by the United States, including those controlled by CIA, the State Department, the military industrial complex, banks, NGOs, corporations and US surrogates in the EU and NATO, which for simplicity we will call "US/NATO". Since the collapse of the USSR (and some might argue since NATO’s very creation) US/NATO have been intensely consolidating their hegemony and control over Eastern Europe using each and every instrument at their disposal and pouring billions of dollars into the effort.
14 December 2013, 03:53
On December 9 Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a decree covering major changes in Russian state run media including the Voice of Russia. Regular VoR contributor Rick Rozoff discussed his reaction to the changes with the VoR's John Robles and stated that the VoR and Russian media have been very important, especially in the last five years, in bringing the world real news and alternative to western media which is either under US White House control or act as mere echo chambers parroting US Government lines and does not allow important political figures, academicians and others to have their voices heard.
13 December 2013, 13:06
Having established itself on the European continent in the devastating aftermath of World War II, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has emerged as a tool for the execution of aggressive wars against small countries that maintain some modicum of independence and for which they are targeted for destruction by the West and NATO. US/NATO are following a policy summed up by the words of former US President George Bush, one of “either you are with them or they will destroy you”, and we have seen proof of that since the invasion of Yugoslavia. As for the encirclement of Russia with interceptor missiles, now that the supposed pretext for that missile shield is gone, the threat from Iran, the intent of the encirclement of Russia is clear, the target has always been Russia. Rick Rozoff spoke to the VOR’s John Robles about this and more.
11 December 2013, 23:13
The Russian Federation is responding to developing and current threats to its security and attempts by the West to shift the global strategic military balance in its favor, with US/NATO's missile "defense" shield being cited as one of the key threats faced by Russia in maintaining a strategic balance and one for which against which measures are being taken. Attempts by the US/NATO to militarize the Arctic are also being addressed as well as attempts by US/NATO to tip the balance of the nuclear deterrence and project its "force" globally, in particular with regard to the Middle East.
11 December 2013, 16:50
On the occasion of International Human Rights Day 562 authors from around the world, including 5 Nobel Prize laureates, have signed an open letter calling for the defense of civil liberties against surveillance by corporations and governments. The 5 Nobel Prize Winners who signed the appeal are: Orhan Pamuk, J.M. Coetzee, Elfriede Jelinek, Günter Grass and Tomas Tranströmer.
10 December 2013, 22:46
The events of 9-11-2001 continue to be the subject of intense debate and speculation due to the US Governments failure to provide the people of the world with a plausible or believable explanation namely: why two steel framed skyscrapers collapsed and were pulverized into dust as they imploded into their own footprints at free-fall speed from a lateral impact that they were designed to withstand, why building 7 also collapsed due to "office fires" and how a 767 disappeared into a two meter in diameter hole in the Pentagon without damaging the lawn or even second floor windows. Attacks of this nature have been classified as "an indirect defensive attack" by author Len Bracken and in this case saw the United States attacking itself. For those who think these are all "conspiracy theories" Len Bracken cites Machiavelli as one figure who actually documented such tactics man many years ago. He spoke to the Voice of Russia about these matters and more blaming 9-11 on a group originally calling itself the Safari Club.
8 December 2013, 20:13
There is a very dangerous and historically heretofore unheard of precedent about to take place which could fundamentally change the world in more dark and sinister ways than even Machiavelli could have ever dreamed of and one which should have all of us, as citizens of this “modern” world very, very afraid. The event is a very dangerous and crucial turning point in the war on journalism that began with the cover up of the events of 9-11 and took place on December 3rd 2013 in front of the British Parliament’s Home Affairs Select Committee when the editor of the UK’s Guardian Alan Rusbridger was questioned with regard to the publication of files and information given to the Guardian by Edward Snowden and the world was informed that the Guardian would be investigated for terrorism.
7 December 2013, 18:06
The so-called "War on Terror" has been and continues to be abused by western security services and governments who have used it to strip away fundamental freedoms such as freedom of speech, freedom of movement and freedom of association. The security services which now operate with almost complete impunity and are catered to by the judicial bodies which are supposed to provide some form of accountability and oversight along with other government bodies simply cater to the security services and have allowed them to basically become out of control. In Australia AISO has recently engaged in intimidation tactics against lawyers taking the Australian government to court in the Hague. This attempt at hiding illegality and institutionalized corruption by AISO, in a case involving millions of dollars, is almost exactly the type of thing we have seen from the US and the UK. Greg Barns spoke to the Voice of Russia after the hearing in the UK Parliament over disclosures made by the Guardian, yet another case of a western government attempting to intimidate and hide illegality.
7 December 2013, 15:00
The world is in mourning over the death of Nelson Mandela, who ourageously fought to the very end. We are all a little less for this passing as with the death of every person we are all diminished as human beings, but we are diminished even more when someone who was a positive force and a unifying figure for millions leaves our presence. Throughout history there have been few positive forces who have fought for peace and justice of the stature of the late Nelson Mandela. Through his own personal sacrifice, his example and his unwavering belief in justice and peace he brought about true change for his people, his country and the world.
6 December 2013, 15:34
What one might call "the clash of civilizations" has once again raised its head and never been clearer than it currently is Ukraine. This western provoked clash between what one might broadly call "East and West" was seen most recently in Syria and fortunately for the Syrian people the East won that round. The battle has also been seen recently in Iran with Russia also spearheading attempts to reign in those whose only instrument to bring about their own selfish aims is force. In Ukraine the intentions and the modus operandi of the West are once again exposed and right there in plain sight for anyone who is more than casual observer to see.
5 December 2013, 23:31
The pursuit by the Australia, the UK and the US of whistleblowers and media outlets which publish any information that the security agencies do not like continues to be a worrying development that appears to be getting worse. The almost unheard of prospect that the Guardian might face terrorism charges for publishing revelations of illegal US/UK/FVEY spying shows that the West is continuing and in fact escalating their war on journalists and anyone who dares to speak out. The fact that a media outlet performing its proper oversight function and practicing responsible journalism might face terrorism charges brings to question the true meaning of that word and who is in fact using fear and terror to reach their own political and other ends. Labels of “treason” and “terrorism” by security agencies are used to strike fear into anyone who might seek to publish the truth. We are heading into, if not already, in a similar epoch as the McCarthy years and this is frightening according to Greg Barns in an interview with the Voice of Russia.
5 December 2013, 20:52
The West and the United States through its military wing NATO, which has expanded into a global military force, continues to attempt to expand its influence into the former Soviet Space. Although NATO, which is struggling to stay relevant, should have been disbanded at the same time that the Soviet Union collapsed and the Warsaw Pact was dissolved, continues to expand worldwide. Recently the Ambassador of the Russian Federation to Serbia gave a speech in which he called Serbia's membership in NATO a red line for the Russian Federation.
4 December 2013, 15:24
US Secretary of State John Kerry is currently on a whirlwind tour which is to see him visiting NATO headquarters in Brussels, Moldova, Israel and the State of Palestine, destinations which may for the casual observer seem unrelated but which are all important and key locations in the framework of expanding and cementing US influence (albeit waning) and hegemony both in Europe and the Middle East.
3 December 2013, 20:36
The exact numbers are difficult to ascertain either due to purposeful obfuscation for political reasons or because the ongoing destabilized situation in the country makes it impossible to compile accurate reports but the number of deaths in Iraq since the US invasion in 2003 varies from a very conservative 115,000 to a probably more realistic 1,120,000. The disparity of 1 million 5 thousand is a huge margin of error but all of the organization reporting the figures are respected authorities in the field.
3 December 2013, 00:29
The Russian Ambassador to Serbia Alexander Chepurin recently gave a speech at the Belgrade Academy for Diplomacy and Security in which he stated that Serbia joining NATO, an almost unbelievable development, would be a red line that in no way suits Russia. During his question and answer session with the students he also mentioned a second red line for Russia, namely that that nobody should pressure Serbia during EU negotiations and that any form of integration "must not interfere with the long tradition of cultural, economic, and political Russo-Serbian ties: because that is primarily in the interest of Serbia."
2 December 2013, 01:19
A recent claim by the Washington Post, without confirmation from the US Department of Justice (DOJ) which has had plenty of time to do provide such, that the DOJ will not prosecute Julian Assange or WikiLeaks, appears to be nothing more than a clever ruse to discredit Mr. Assange and WikiLeaks. There is a saying in Russian that “hope dies last” and this would appear to be the case with regard to WikiLeaks and the hope that much of the world has that the US Government will finally stop its war on whistleblowers, journalists, truth-seekers, hacktivists, proponents of transparency and information activists. It is not all doom and gloom however, it has finally been admitted that Mr. Assange and WikiLeaks are a journalistic endeavor and a news source and that at least is a (long-overdue) step in the right direction.
29 November 2013, 03:31
There are forces in the United States and in the world who are above and able to influence the highest US Government officials, including the President of the United States himself. They might be called Puppet Masters, the Shadow Government, the Secret Team or what have you, but the meaning is the same; powerful dynastic forces that control almost everything. According to Andrew Kreig, in an interview with the Voice of Russia, it is important to reveal these forces to understand the presidencies of both Bush and Obama, who he says live in fear that what happened to Kennedy might happen to them. This is the reason that Mr. Kreig believes it is extremely important to solve the Kennedy assassination. In part three Mr. Kreig finally reveals who he believes carried out the assassination of JFK, his conclusion may surprise you.
26 November 2013, 19:04
When the Cold War finished many intelligent, peace-loving and thinking people all over the world believed that there would be a drawing down of military forces and an end to the arms race as the ideological confrontation between the USSR and the USA was no longer a geopolitical reality. However as history has shown that has been far from the case and in fact the opposite is completely true. With the recent Steadfast Jazz training exercises, military buildup in Poland and the current exercises envisaging fighting against regular army forces in the Caucuses US/NATO continue military exercises and maneuvers that are clearly aimed against Russia. These moves by US/NATO are perhaps the most serious threat to world peace and stability that currently exists.
26 November 2013, 18:03
The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin met with Pope Francis in the Vatican, the meeting between the two leaders who are instrumental in bringing about a peaceful resolution to the situation in Syria and who prevented a western military intervention in that country further advanced work on issues related to bringing about a peaceful resolution to conflicts in the Middle East and in particular resolving the plight of Syrian’s Christian population who are largely supporters of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.

People who knew Lee Harvey Oswald and even Oswald himself, maintain to this day that he was just the fall guy for the Kennedy assassination. Although the Warren Commission concluded that the assassination was carried out by a lone shooter, Lee Harvey Oswald, all of the evidence points to at least three. Even the fact that the three shots in six seconds came from different locations and that the bolt action rifle Oswald had had a defective site and could not have physically been reloaded fast enough to fire three shots in six seconds, did not stop the Warren Commission from blaming Oswald. One fact that all scholars and investigators seem to be able to agree on is that some aspects or actors in all of the possible theories may have worked together to assassinate JFK. Researcher and author Andrew Kreig spoke to the Voice of Russia from Dallas Texas on the 22nd of November and shared his insights into the JFK assassination.
25 November 2013, 13:28
WikiLeaks recently released part of a secret trade agreement called the Trans Pacific Partnership Treaty (TPP) which is described as a corporate coup d'état, is being effected in secret and will affect over 800 million people. The reaction to this leak has been very positive according to Kristinn Hrafnsson the number 2 at WikiLeaks who spoke to the Voice of Russia about this important treaty which he said has been described as an international SOPA on steroids. Among opponents of the supra-natural treaty are Doctors Without Borders, who say the Treaty will cause untold deaths and suffering in poorer countries because it will effectively end generic medicines and even patent certain medical procedures.
23 November 2013, 20:21
One of US President John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s (JFK) most memorable and currently topical speeches was an address before the American Newspaper Publishers Association on April 27, 1961, in which he detailed the role of the mass media and the threat to freedom faced by the world and why the media must be protected and its freedom jealously guarded. The words of JFK ring truer today than they perhaps did in 1961 and what he and Dwight D. Eisenhower warned about has come to be the reality that we all live with today, with now little hope for undoing.
23 November 2013, 19:13
To understand the circumstances around the assassination of US President John Fitzgerald Kennedy and the forces behind it one has to understand what Project Northwoods was. One also has to understand the racist forces that were fighting to keep segregation, the influence of the military industrial complex, the cold war, those in the shadows controlling everything and the animosity towards Cuba at the time. The actors behind the assassination of JFK were representatives of all these forces. Andrew Kreig, the author of Presidential Puppetry spoke to the Voice of Russia about the JFK assassination and says who he thinks really carried it out.
23 November 2013, 02:16
The events of 9-11-2001 are still cause for research and questioning and this will not go away until the truth is known. Among the thousands and thousands of inconsistencies in and around 9-11 are facts such as the US Government Anthrax that was used in the Anthrax terror attacks, the fact that two of the planes that were reportedly involved in 9-11 are still sighted today and the way the WTC buildings came down in obvious controlled demolitions. Len Bracken, who has written extensively on the matter spoke to the Voice of Russia on some of the more stunning questions that have never been answered.
21 November 2013, 15:39
According to the UK's Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) due to the weak surveillance laws and regulations in the UK the GCHQ is in a good position to help the US National Security Agency (NSA) find information that the NSA is restricted from spying on. As part of a worldwide spying operation called "Five Eyes" (FVEY) a spying alliance of Anglo countries (UKUSA,) has established electronic listening posts on their embassies around the world and are able to interceptor almost every kind of electronic communication known to man. The spying on ordinary citizens is illegal and thus anyone who plays a role in revealing this and other illegality, such as Edward Snowden (who the US will not stop in pursuing) face open-ended persecution and the full weight of the US security state. Michael John Smith spoke on these issues and more with the Voice of Russia's John Robles.
20 November 2013, 14:27
For the first time in history the State of Palestine was able to take part in a vote at the United Nations General Assembly. The irony that the vote was for a judge on the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), another country which has fought a long battle for self-determination, cannot be missed by historians and observers. The Voice of Russia spoke to the First Counselor of the Permanent Mission of Palestine to the United Nations Rabie Al-Hantuli regarding the vote and the current round of negotiations with Israel which has been occupying their territory since 1967.
20 November 2013, 13:45
French President Francois Hollande on Monday sharpened his tone dramatically on Israel's settlement policies, demanding a "complete halt" to constructions in the disputed area. Riyad H. Mansour, a Palestinian-American diplomat and a Permanent Palestinian Observer at the United Nations since 2005, talked to the Voice of Russia's very own John Robles about Hollande's statement and the current state of affairs in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. According to Dr. Mansour, Israel has to stop illegally building settlements and expanding existing ones to allow negotiations to proceed in an appropriate atmosphere. Dr. Mansour also called for the international community to force Israel to change its illegal behavior. The diplomat also condemned those countries with powerful veto powers in the UN that continuously provide cover for Israel's impunity. "We want to negotiate with Israel all the final status issues, borders, Jerusalem, refugees, security, settlements, water and prisoners", said Dr. Mansour; but for that, Israel has to "stop its illegal behavior".

On November 15th, 2013 there were panicked reports coming out of Tripoli that the Misrata militia and al-Qaeda groups had begun to open fire on peaceful demonstrators. The almost non-existent government in Libya is apparently completely unable to maintain order in the country which has effectively been taken over by terrorist groups. We spoke to James and JoAnne Moriarty, representatives of tribal nations of Libya and Faraj Muftah, a tribal spokesperson for the tribes of Libya about the situation in Tripoli.

On November 15, 2013, Loretta A. Preska (born January 7, 1949 in Albany, New York) a Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York and a former nominee to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit handed down an extremely harsh sentence to Mr. Jeremy Hammond for being entrapped by a an FBI informant into hacking the Stratfor Global Intelligence e-mails servers, in a case she should have removed herself from due to the fact that her husband works with Stratfor and had some minor personal information revealed (reportedly his e-mail address) in the Stratfor hack.

With more and more revelations of massive spying by the United States and its National Security Agency (NSA) on the citizens and countries of the world, coupled with attempts by the US to control, monitor and in fact take over the Worldwide Web, the Hacktivist Group Anonymous is continuing to fight for the free transfer of ideas and freedom of expression and speech on the internet. With Draconian laws and measures being taken by the United States, Anonymous has been busy developing strategies to counter corporate and government internet tyranny by those who wish to regulate, control, monitor, spy on and profit from you every time you go online. In part two of a longer interview with Anonymous it is revealed that the group will soon be releasing a new operating system that is super secure as well as open source. The existence of built in back doors in the Windows platform for the NSA is another very disturbing revelation that has been largely ignored until now.

The government transparency website WikiLeaks has recently released part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement, this is a document that will affect over 800,000 million people. However it is being passed without the knowledge of their prospective governments, nor of the people who will be affected by it. Another event that has had reverberations throughout the internet was the November 15th sentencing of former LULSEC and Anonymous Hacktivist, Jeremy Hammond, to 10 years in prison for being entrapped in an FBI hack of the Stratfor e-mail files. The Voice of Russia spoke to a Hacktivist of the Anonymous Hacktivist Collective on these issues and more.

The entire western intervention in Libya was a lie fabricated from the very beginning to allow the US/NATO to prevent: gold-based dinars from damaging the dollar, an international law suit filed by Libya over the violations by the West of treaties, Libyan oil trade to be done in Euros, and a non-US controlled block to grow strong. The "humanitarian intervention" was never about protecting the Libyan people. It was only about money, geopolitics and resources. By providing air-support, funding and weapons to Al-Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood and terrorists groups US/NATO was successful in destroying the government, completely freeing up the resources and assassinating the leader. The Libyan people now live in a state of anarchy being decimated by US/CIA/Al-Qaeda (the CIA data-base), and the West is silent. Where is the "support for the people of Libya" now? Faraj Muftah is a representative of the tribes of Libya and is in exile, he granted the VOR an interview on the real situation in Libya.

The transparency site WikiLeaks has recently released part of a secret trade agreement called the Trans Pacific Partnership Treaty (TPP) being fast-tracked through the US Congress by US President Barrack Obama. What is astounding about the treaty, other than the fact that it is being pushed through without allowing US Congressmen access to the full text, is that only 3 people in each of the 12 prospective signatory countries, have access to the full text. Given that the treaty will affect countries which account for about 40% of the world GDP and over 800 million people, the fact that 600 corporate bankers are effectively hi-jacking the governments of the member countries and that only 3 people in each country know the full contents of the treaty, the document is a true step towards Corporate Fascism. The Voice of Russia spoke to WikiLeaks number 2 Kristinn Hrafnsson on the section of the TPP which they released.
15 November 2013, 23:51
WikiLeaks has released part of a larger document concerning a new economic treaty that is alarming in its scope and implications and according to WikiLeaks is the largest economic treaty in history. The secret Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement is an instrument that will radically strip away rights and seek to completely control almost every area that is of interest to the large corporations that are going to be the main beneficiaries. The closeness with which US President Obama is working with the corporate interests behind the treaty to ram it through the US Congress with almost no debate or chance for oversight is egregious in itself and further shows just how closely connected corporations like Chevron, Halliburton and Monsanto are with the US Government. Such a document proves without a shadow of a doubt that the US Government has been annexed by huge corporations and the lines between monied interests and the government that was supposed to serve the people have all but disappeared.

The attack on the CIA base in Benghazi Libya continues to be the subject of discussion around the world as slowly more and more details continue to come and to coalesce into a fuller picture of what really occurred and the true role of the United States in Libya, as well as in the Middle East on the whole. In an interview with the Voice of Russia Andrew Kreig, the author Presidential Puppetry: Obama, Romney and Their Masters, gives his views on what he believes really occurred in Benghazi and the connections between presidents, the power elite and the intelligence services in the United States. He paints a portrait of presidents who are truly merely puppets to their powerful and secret masters, forces who are not necessarily American.

Crimes Against Humanity related charges have been filed against US President Barrack Hussein Obama at the International Criminal Court in the Hague by a group of Egyptian lawyers according to multiple media sources in Egypt and worldwide. The Egyptian efforts are part of mounting international calls to finally bring the American President to account for egregious violations of international laws and conventions.

States have used terrorism in various ways to advance their own interests for hundreds of years, including the use of terrorist attacks as a means to justify acts of war, crackdowns and Draconian laws such as the US Patriot Act. According to research on the matter by Len Bracken who granted an interview to the Voice of Russia, there are different types of state sponsored terrorist attacks which he has classified and that have been used by NATO, the US and other states in the past. Mr. Bracken is a specialist on the attacks of 9-11 and has done extensive research and interviewed witnesses including police who knew about Anthrax being stored by "Israeli Agents" in the US who were allowed to go free.

The revelations of Edward Snowden continue to reverberate throughout the world and are causing light to illuminate the dark recesses of the West's intelligence agencies. Although the argument has been made that this "light" is causing terrorists to go "dark" Mr. Snowden's revelations have benefitted the public good worldwide and have caused a global outcry at the extent of intrusive spying by the once "non-existent" NSA and their partners. Regular Voice of Russia contributor Michael John Smith also gave his views on the fact that over 850,000 people had access to the same information as Edward Snowden. Mr. Smith believes light is the best remedy for exposing corruption.

After completing a trip to Hanoi, Vietnam where literally scores of agreements and bilateral documents were signed, the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin arrived in the Republic of Korea after receiving an official invitation from the President of South Korea Park Geun-hye. Steps by the Russian Federation to further develop mutually beneficial ties between the Russian Federation, the Koreas and the entire region point to.

While much of the world’s attention has been focused on NSA and US spying through the internet and electronic devices, one area that has been overlooked are advances in/and activities surrounding signals intelligence through the radio spectrum. An area which has also made huge advancements over the last 20 years.

On November 11th, as Poland marked its Independence Day holiday, right-wing nationalists and rioters decided to target and attack the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Warsaw, Poland. The Polish Security Services protected the site but not until rioters burnt a police post and did damage to the Embassy Compound. Riot police were forced to form a cordon around the embassy to protect the location and multiple arrest were made. Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk has apologized for the attack, organized by hate groups operating in Poland whose backing must surely now be investigated.

By preventing another act of aggressive war against Syria and giving asylum to NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden the Russian Federation and due to the efforts of the BRICs countries being led by Russia, the "World’s Sole Military Superpower" has lost the reigns of world domination, and the world has become a multi-polar place once again. This has been another in a long line of failures by US President Barrack Hussein Obama, who has been an ineffective and failed leader domestically and internationally according to regular Voice of Russia contributor Rick Rozoff.

Late CIA Agent/US Ambassador to Libya, Stevens, was a gun runner for al-Qaeda and during the time leading up to his death he was trying to secure the return of 20,000 MANPAD surface to air missiles from al-Qaeda and affiliated groups. These weapons were transferred to radical Islamist elements in Libya to help the US/NATO overthrow the country. Now according to James and JoAnne Moriarity in an interview with the Voice of Russia, al-Qaeda owns Libya, and the only way to get Libya back is through the tribal peoples of Libya, who do not support the fanatical Islamists. According to the Mr. and Mrs. Moriarity Stevens was killed by Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood who were being funded by the US Embassy in Egypt.

The sentencing of former Anonymous Hacker Jeremy Hammond is scheduled for November 15th in New York City. Mr. Hammond will be sent to prison for being entrapped in a hack of Stratfor Global Intelligence by an FBI informant named Hector Xavier Monsegur who is still working for the FBI and went by the hacker name Sabu when he was part of Anonymous. The sentence in the case is expected to be close to 10 years for a cyber crime which in an analogous real-world situation would have gotten Mr. Hammond six months. Mrs. Sue Crabtree, a close family friend of Mr. Hammond spoke to the Voice of Russia about the case and also the case of a journalist named Barret Brown who may be sent to prison for 100 years for (according to Mrs. Hammond) sharing a link to the Sratfor e-mails.

The Million Mask March has come and gone but the organizers are saying that it was a success and that it is possible that worldwide the event had pulled together over a million people in protests against political corruption and government illegality. The event sought to pull people from their on-line groups into real tangible protests in the streets of cities around the world. The Voice of Russia spoke to Christine Ann Sands, the chief organizer of the event which sought to bring together members and supporters of the Anonymous Hacktivist collective, supporters of WikiLeaks and truth seekers from all walks of life, in a massive peaceful protest.

The head of the US National Security Agency also heads the US/NATO Cyber Command, an offensive device designed to wage war in what architects call the "Fourth Space". This, in effect means every time you go on-line you are potentially entering a war zone. Recent events surrounding the attempted military aggression against Syria that was stopped by Russia's adept diplomatic efforts and the granting of asylum to Edward Snowden have shown that the days of US domination of the world are coming to an end. According to Voice of Russia regular contributor, Rick Rozoff, the people of the world need to stand up and it's not just their leaders who have been "publically humiliated in front of their own people by being maltreated in the manner they have by their Yankee NATO allies".
8 November 2013, 12:19
The Million Mask March was a worldwide event and, according to various sources, it did manage to pull together close to a million people all over the globe. During the event things got tense and although there were provocateurs who did try to turn the peaceful event into a clash with police, Anonymous and all of the Anons who turned out remained peaceful, united and made their voices heard. One of the principal organizers of the event, Christine Ann Sands, spoke to the Voice of Russia before, after, and during the event which she summed up as a success for Anonymous and for the people.

There are secret forces which control the real power in the United States. These include intelligence agencies like the CIA and the FBI, the military industrial complex, secret organizations and societies like Skull and Bones and countless foundations. These bodies might be called "Puppet Masters" as author Andrew Kreig does. Mr. Kreig is the author of a new book on the matter and the director of the Justice and Integrity Project as well as an investigative journalist and public advocate of transparency and rule of law. He spoke to the Voice of Russia on these and other issues.

Obama and the US Government are waging a war on whistleblowers and anyone who can expose the wrongdoings and illegality being committed by the authorities. This includes the entrapment of activists, hackers, and whistleblowers. One such young man, Jeremy Hammond, is currently being held in solitary confinement awaiting sentence for releasing the Stratfor e-mails, a hack arranged by the FBI, most likely to entrap WikiLeaks. The files were stored on the FBI’s own servers and uploaded directly from FBI servers to WikiLeaks. Rather than stop the release of the information, the FBI allowed it to happen and then blamed Hammond. Sue Crabtree, the mother of a family who had taken Jeremy Hammond in spoke with the Voice of Russia about the persecution of Hammond, a member of Anonymous.

He was a president who was to bring “Hope and Change” to a populace and world weary of endless wars, a hyper-security state and the trampling of their rights, yet things have gotten worse rather than better since the reign of Barack Obama begun. Almost everything that Obama has done seems hypocritical, from his quoting Abraham Lincoln at his inauguration and his refusal to speak at the 150 year anniversary of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address to his continuation of endless wars and his receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. On the 5th anniversary of his election, VoR looks at some of the areas in which Obama has not succeeded. These failures have affected people worldwide and include: the Nobel Peace Prize, the “Reset” with Russia, foreign policy and interventionism, rule of law and maintaining the moral high ground, Guantanamo, the economy and unemployment, healthcare, education, the hyper-security state, terrorism, US Defense, human rights, the respect for sovereignty, and Edward Snowden.

The massive worldwide demonstrations planned for the 5th of November by supporters and members of the hacktivist group Anonymous, as well as those of WikiLeaks, the Pirate Party, the Occupy Movement and anyone seeking social justice, will be kicking off very soon. The main event in Washington, DC begins at 9 AM local time at the Washington Monument. There have been people behind the scenes attempting to discredit the peaceful activists who obtained a permit for the event and are planning to meet peacefully, a topic we talked about with the chief organizer for the event and an Anonymous supporter, Christine Ann Sands. She revealed that certain provocateurs have gone so far in their attempt to cause a violent clash with the authorities that they are calling for what can only be described taking the President of the United States Barack Obama, hostage.

In another powerful and significant move for peace, the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin has cancelled a presidential order which in 2011, had set up an interdepartmental working group under the authority of the Russian Presidential Administration designed to develop ways to establish cooperation with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in the sphere of 'missile defense'.

Anonymous is calling for a massive turnout for the Million Mask March in Washington DC on November 5th. The protest will publicise the extent of NSA surveillance programs and that they must be held accountable for their actions. While the NSA chose to ignore Russian warnings about terrorist threats prior to the Boston bombing, they are deeply implicated in the drone attacks that are killing innocent people in several countries around the world. The revelations of Edward Snowden could be seen as a heroic action in raising awareness about NSA spying, but the underlying reasons for all this surveillance may be more sinister: that the US Government is planning a Surveillance State to prevent future rebellion by its own citizens.

Their message is that, to purge the system in the United States, corporate money must be taken out of the political process. Exposing that corruption is a goal for whistle blowers and Hacktivists alike, on the 5th of November the Hacktivist group Anonymous, the Occupy Movement, supporters of WikiLeaks, the Pirate Party and other activists will join forces to make their voices heard as they meet to protest against US Government corruption and fight for a better world. A member of the Hactivist group Anonymous spoke to the Voice of Russia on these issues and more. The contributor does not speak for the entire collective as that would entail polling thousands of members to get a consensus, nor is he/she claiming to be a leader. The voice has been digitized to protect the speaker's identity.

The persecution of Jeremy Hammond is largely being ignored by the US mass media but the case of the young man accused of being involved in the passing of the Stratfor E-Mails to WikiLeaks is full of contradictions and serious reasons to question the motives of the judge and the entire prosecution, including the FBI which, it has been revealed, not only orchestrated the hack through an FBI informant known by the code name "Sabu", but could have stopped the leak of the files anytime had they wanted. The FBI were in fact storing the "Stratfor Files" on their own servers for two weeks before they were released to WikiLeaks. According to Sue Crabtree, a close friend of Jeremy and the mother of the family who took Jeremy in and whose children considered him a brother, the FBI may have been interested in the activities of Stratfor which may explain why they held the material on their servers for so long. Mrs. Crabtree also believes that the FBI was interested in selling the material to WikiLeaks so that charges of espionage could be brought.

For many people in the United States and even all over the world it is a hard concept to accept and even to comprehend, that the President of the United States may not be as powerful a figure as many would care to believe and behind every president in the United States that are forces that are in fact the real holders of power, regardless of who is in the White House. The author of a book detailing the way American presidents are manipulated and chosen, Andrew Kreig, an Yale Law graduate, legal reform advocate and the Director of the Justice and Integrity Project spoke to the Voice of Russia about who holds the real power in US politics.

Although most of the world knows about the NSA and its massive spying operations, as many as 50% of Americans have no idea what their government is really doing or who the NSA is. On November 5th the Hacktivist group Anonymous, "the Knights of the Internet" is planning a gathering in Washington, DC called the Million Mask March, in protest not only at massive NSA surveillance but scores of encroachments on the rights of their fellow humans. A member of Anonymous spoke to the Voice of Russia and gave his/her views on Hacktivism, corrupt government and some of the ways people can protect themselves on-line. However he/she stated, the level of spying is so "ridiculous" that almost nothing can be trusted and the only way to return to freedom from monitoring is reigning in the NSA and those who are spying on us all.

In the United Kingdom and in the United States and in some other countries there exists what is known as "Common Law", these are laws that govern and grant the most fundamental rights of the citizens, in many cases Common Law overrides or contradicts Constitutional Law with Common Law usually taking precedence. Another problem and a way that constitutions are bypassed or law is abused in the interpretation of simple language where words like "must" may be synonymous with "may". These little known weaknesses open door for manipulation and "secret interpretations" of laws that allow for abused and illegality, which has been a feature of the US Government in particular since 9-11, with its torture programs, indefinite detention and the stripping of freedoms and civil liberties. Former MI5 officer David Shayler spoke to the Voice of Russia about those issues and his views on those who really hold the world's political and economic power.

Revelations by Edward Snowden about massive internet spying and the "surveillance state" implemented after the events of 9-11 via instruments such as the Patriot Act, are continuing to cause widespread discontent among not only American citizens but people around the world. On the anniversary of the passing of the original Patriot Act the Fight for the Future Campaign and other activist groups planned protests and rallies and the delivery of over 500,000 signatures in protest of the stifling of freedoms in the US. The Voice of Russia spoke to Evan Greer, the organizer of the Fight for the Future Campaign and one of the organizers of the Stop Watching Us rally in Washington DC.

Activists in support of Anonymous, WikiLeaks and the Occupy Movement are organizing mass demonstrations worldwide on the 5th of November in protest of what they say is massive government corruption, war crimes, the crackdown on internet freedom and the war on whistleblowers and those who seek the truth behind the mass media façade and the government lies. The Voice of Russia’s John Robles spoke to Christine Ann Sands, regarding the upcoming Million Mask March, an event she is helping to organize. The level of illegality affected Christine to the point where she decided to do something about it, her fight leading her to become one of the few public faces of Anonymous.

The situation surrounding the recent rendition of Libyan "terrorist" Al-Libi from Libya has raised many questions worldwide and many have cited it as an example of "American Exceptionalism", which is merely an excuse to ignore international law. Actions such as these have characterized the paradigm that has existed worldwide since 9-11. The real truth is beginning to come out and can be largely credited to Hacktivists, who access information that should be known by the people in the interest of the public good. Former MI5 whistleblower David Shayler gave an interview to the Voice of Russia and stated those things and more, and gave his unique perspective on issues affecting all of us today. Mr. Shayler was marginalized by British Security for exposing illegality yet he has had the strength to continue fighting to get the truth to the people in order to attempt to "correct" the world.

The United States is growing ever more desperate in the Middle East and around the world as it is becoming increasingly clearer with each passing day, no matter how US officials attempt to portray their country as in control and relevant, that things have changed and the US is a “world superpower” in decline. Unfortunately that decline is not going to be a pretty one, especially for the Washington elites and the geopolitical architects that have brought upon the world the current war-on-terror-hyper-security-state-paradigm. These “planners” may have to finally account for the way they have run roughshod over international laws and norms and there is a danger they may lash out in irrational ways.
25 October 2013, 03:16
During the US/NATO invasion of Libya there were many people on the ground who survived and witnessed the true horrors of the events taking place in that country. Due to eyewitness accounts such as those of James and JoAnne Moriarty, who gave an exclusive interview to the Voice of Russia, a picture has emerged of a campaign where al-Qaeda invaded Libya and was provided air support by the US/NATO. If this is true it goes against all of the accepted norms of international law and conduct. In effect paid non-state mercenaries staging an illegal invasion with air support from the West to make the resources available.
24 October 2013, 10:23
As the US and NATO begin to pull out of Afghanistan what might wonder and attempt to fathom what they have achieved by invading and occupying the country for over a decade. According to Voice of Russia regular Rick Rozoff, the owner and manager of the Stop NATO website and mailing list, the entire campaign has been a debacle. Mr. Rozoff is another voice repeating what has clearly been discovered to be the US strategy in the Middle East: import murderous terrorists and Al-Qaeda fanatical mercenaries into a country and use them to destroy it and divide it up.

“At any moment any one of us could be executed by a drone anywhere in the world and you can be just indefinitely detained in the US or anywhere in the world,” says Vladislav Simic, a Serbian Professor in International Affairs currently teaching in Monterey Mexico. In an interview for the Voice of Russia Simic talks about the fallacy of American Exceptionalism and the dangers behind it. According to Simic, the dangers of exceptionalism lie within particular countries signing agreements that give the US special treatment thereby “legalizing” such a concept.

Former Military Intelligence (MI5) Officer David Shayler, a whistleblower whose conscience caused him to foil a plot by MI6 to assassinate the late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, spoke to the Voice of Russia regarding the recent rendition of Abu Anas al-Libi, one of the main figures in that plot, by the United States. As an English Intelligence Officer working on the Libya desk, Mr. Shayler’s insights into operations by the West in the Middle East and against “terrorists” such as al-Qaeda are revealing and help to paint a truer picture of what is currently happening there.

The widow of assassinated Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, Safia Farkash Gaddafi, has made a plea to the world community, finding a place for her voice to be heard on the Voice of Russia. Obviously this is something that may cause certain countries a bit of discomfort, especially as they have become accustomed to doing whatever they please with impunity.
21 October 2013, 18:51
Christine Ann Sands one of the chief organizers and one of the few public faces of Anonymous spoke to the Voice of Russia, in an exclusive interview, about the Million Mask March, Hacktivism, WikiLeaks and the truth movement. According to Ms. Sands the American people have been hijacked by evil forces that were behind the 9-11 attacks and that continue to control the US government, the media and political parties.
20 October 2013, 19:18
The situation in Libya after the United States and NATO "intervention" has been extremely unstable and continues to spiral into a condition that can only be described as anarchy. With the recent attacks on the Russian Embassy, the rendition of a Libyan citizen by the United States and the reported kidnapping of the country’s Prime Minister, the instability and violence appears to be growing. The Voice of Russia spoke to an anonymous source in the Libyan Defense Ministry to try to understand the reality of the situation on the ground after the Western military operation and the assassination of Muammar Gaddafi. This is the first part of a full text of a longer interview on the latest developments in Libya.

According to a high official in the Libyan Defense Ministry the recent attack on the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Tripoli, Libya was ordered by Mahmood Djebril, who along with the Qaqaa Brigade which he commands, has close ties to Prime Minister Ali Zeidan. The official wishes to remain anonymous due to concerns for his own safety. To honor his request, the Voice of Russia had his voice digitally altered.

Kosovo remains a protectorate of the United Nations, part of Serbia officially, which shows how bi-polar the US government is or has been in the last 20 years, because at the same time they guarantee the sovereignty of Yugoslavia and Serbia. While Yugoslavia doesn’t exist, but Serbia now is a successor state, the United States guarantees the sovereignty of Serbia over Kosovo, while at the same time it recognizes Kosovo as a sovereign country. Viseslav Simic, Doctoral Candidate at the Technology Institute in Monterrey, Mexico, stated that and more in his interview for the Voice of Russia. Mr. Simic also said that unless you get into the structure of the government and you impose your will through those institutions and organs of the government nothing will change. Change must come from within.

Rather than being ashamed for causing the US Federal Government to shutdown, political forces in the US are using it to advance their own agendas and point fingers at each other turning it into a veritable “Punch and Judy” show. Voice of Russia regular Rick Rozoff spoke about this and more as a discussion on NATO and US military operations went into the funding aspect with a US Government continuing its global military adventures regardless of how hard the people back home have been hit.
16 October 2013, 19:11
The US government shutdown has caused the cancellation of most social programs by the government. While the government has supposedly been “shut down” special interest projects and imperialistic activities by the US continue unabated, far-right elements in the US have decided to use the shutdown as a means to facilitate the further stripping of social programs for those most in need. The power elite in the US believe that the “poorer classes” of the population are expendable. I spoke to Debra Sweet of the World Can’t Wait! on these issues and more.

World organizations and military blocks are being used by the West to subvert the sovereignty of nations. This is easier to do with broken countries where the West can destroy the legitimate government and the deal with the warlords for example, as is the case in Libya, where the country is shattered and the West has access to the resources by dealing directly with the authorities in the region where the resources are. The Voice of Russia spoke to Professor Viseslav Simic on these issues and more.
15 October 2013, 01:52
While in fact being illegal aggressions and incursions onto the sovereign territories of foreign countries, recent "operations" by the US in Somalia as well as the kidnapping of a Libyan citizen go further to underline the illegality of United States government and their actions around the world. Sadly, the US media has portrayed such events and actions as being “bold military flexing of muscles” and somehow proving that their President and leadership is legitimate and powerful and not to be messed with. Most leaders of the world attempt to show that they are for peace or they are for diplomacy, however, due to the belief by Americans in their own exceptionalism acts of aggression are seen as events to be lauded, applauded and proud of. Nowhere has the western media focused in detail on the fact that the kidnapped Libyan citizen was actually one of the US’ own freedom-fighters and opposition members before he was branded a terrorist and was then kidnapped from his own country. These further acts by the United States against the sovereignty of other nations, while perhaps playing well back home, only go to underline the complete and total illegality of the current regime in America. Such aggression and rapid worldwide military expansion are the largest threat to world peace that has existed since WWII.

It is the year of the Netherlands in Russia and the year of Russia in the Netherlands, which may make it seem even stranger that relations between the countries appeared to be under threat by two events that had nothing to do with friendship but appear to be possible provocations aimed at ruining Russian-Dutch relations as they are warming and improving. The recent attacks, now two, and actions against Russia may also be tied to Russia’s recent diplomatic successes in averting war in Syria and are possibly being carried out by western provocateurs.

Divide and conquer, one of the oldest strategies in the world, is being applied over and over by the West in their endless campaign of global domination. Such a strategy has absolutely nothing to do with democracy or humanitarian ideals, it has to do with the defragmentation and the destruction of your enemy. Because Serbia had a strong national identity and was seen as an ally of Russia, Serbia was deemed to be the problem in the Balkans. Serbians do not accept the independence of Kosovo and the elected leaders know that which ultimately leads to a “schizophrenic” situation in Serbia. In an interview with the Voice of Russia, Aleksandar Pavic spoke on these issues and more.

Recent attempts by the west to promote its values in Belgrade were met with violent resistance from the Serbian people. The promotion of western culture and "alternative morality" is another tool the West is using to break the moral and ethical spine of nations in order to facilitate occupation. Promoting behavior that goes against the accepted norms of a country is also part of an ongoing attempt being promoted by western corporate media to normalize the way of life alien to Serbia. Political commentator and analyst Aleksandar Pavic spoke with the Voice of Russia on these matters and more from Belgrade.

The topic of “American Exceptionalism” has been making its rounds in the world media in an op-ed piece for the New York Times President Putin said "It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries", said President Putin, "rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. We must not forget that God created us equal".

Calling it a “foreign policy victory” and a “powerful flex of military muscle” the New York Times reported on twin military incursions on Saturday in Africa by the United States, one to assassinate a reported senior Al-Shabab leader whom officials refuse to name, in Somalia and another to kidnap a reported Al-Qaeda leader in Libya named Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai.

On October 3rd 2013 a US “institution” which has been called archaic since the 1950s and still exists today, namely a federal grand jury, “indicted 13 alleged members of the hacker collective Anonymous for conspiring to intentionally cause damage to protected computers.”

With the debate going on the supposed exceptionalism of a certain country it seemed like a good place to start to ask a native of that country their opinion on the exceptionalism of the invaders. In part 3 of a longer interview Mohawk Elder Kahentinetha Horn who spoke to the Voice of Russia, details how the Mohawk Community she lives in was surrounded by the Canadian military forces when they protested the destruction of an Indian graveyard and ceremonial site. She also told us how she was repeatedly beaten and describes an attempted sexual attack by Canadian border police.

With the debate going on the supposed exceptionalism of a certain country it seemed like a good place to start to ask a native of that country their opinion on the exceptionalism of the invaders. The response was sobering. This exceptional nation based on genocide and built by slaves is morally bankrupt has not culture to offer, is running out of resources and its people have no jobs, are losing their homes, going hungry and have no hope for the future. Where then is the exceptionalism? Mohawk Elder Kahendinetha Horn spoke to the Voice of Russia on these issues and much more.

Calls for the president of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin to receive the Nobel Peace Prize are growing around the world with support coming even from leaders of other countries who deserve the award as well in their own right.

The United States of America is an exceptional nation. It truly is! In every way, shape and form it is the most exceptional country on this little blue orb floating in space. And Americans are the most truly exceptional people on the planet, this is a fact that we know just like America knows that every country it wants to bomb is deserving of their bombs because they are less than exceptional and even, to those exceptionally exceptional exceptionalists, they are in fact objectionable. No country on Earth is as exceptional as the US, if you argue then you too will become exceptionable to the exceptionals. If after being put in your place you remain argumentative and objectionable about your own worthlessness then you will become exceptionally exceptionable and warranting exceptional undebatable irretraceable destruction by exceptional means of annihilation. Exceptional to the max!

The topic of American exceptionalism has been making its rounds in the world media in an op-ed piece for the New York Times President Putin said "It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries", said President Putin, "rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. We must not forget that God created us equal". Americans feel they are exceptional. Why? It is one of the fallacies of American history, American history ignores the big lie that America is a country founded on stolen land and based on genocide. I spoke with a native American, a member of the Mohawk Nation to see what she thought about American exceptionalism.

The full text of the United Nations Resolution on Syria has been published and, thanks to the efforts of Russia and China, is one of the most balanced to be agreed in the last century. However there remains the threat of a western attack on Syria. In an interview with the Voice of Russia World Service, regular contributor Rick Rozoff also stated that some language in the resolution could even allow for measures to be taken against any party that provides or supports the Syrian “opposition” with chemical and or other non-conventional weapons.

A corporate criminal syndicate made up of the military industrial complex and its related banking, media, pharmaceutical and other subsidiaries, is controlling the United States, according to Bruce Gagnon in an interview with the Voice of Russia. According to polls the American people are more interested in building infrastructure and helping their fellow citizens than supporting the paradigm of endless wars. Bruce Gagnon, the coordinator for the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space spoke to the Voice of Russia on these issues and more.

In an effort to robotize their war machine the United States has now turned fighter jets into drones. The US plans to convert their entire air force into a drone fleet from bombers to fighters, which will allow them to conduct secret “antiseptic” wars. The broadening of drone usage and the continuation of the endless war that the US is engaged in has become the object of bi-partisan ire with Republicans now “laying out an articulation that is identical to the one” that peace activists and Liberals use. Americans are saying we have: “… no jobs in our community. Our roads are falling apart, our bridges are falling apart, our schools are falling apart,” yet they want to launch another war. According to Bruce Gagnon, in an interview with the Voice of Russia, citing a nazi (sic) paper titled: ”The Caloric Reduction Intake Schedule in Hitler’s Warsaw, Poland”, the US Government is engaged in a modern day genocide of the poorest populations in the US by cutting Food Stamps, healthcare and other kinds of such programs that people need in order to survive. The upper 1% wants to eliminate the “superfluous populations” because there are no jobs anymore in the US and these people are a liability.

In the US, the corporate military industrial complex has completely taken over the Government. After the events of 9-11 the US Constitution has been completely shredded, leaving the American population the most surveilled, subjugated and restricted in the world. What was once considered the land of the free has now become the land of the surveilled, with average Americans afraid to do anything to protest a government which is out of control and looking after its own interests and not those of the people. Despite the almost complete and total surveillance state that has been implemented in the US, defense contractors, firms and governments continue to seek billions of dollars to develop even more means to surveil and control the populace, the classifying of peace activists and anyone who opposes the paradigm as terrorists is something the US populace has grown accustomed to. The Voice of Russia's John Robles spoke to long-time peace activist Bruce Gagnon on these issues and much more.

9-11 was designed as a quasi-religious event that would divide time into a before 9-11 and an after. The architects needed the event to wage endless aggressive wars around the world and continue to stage false flag events, such as the Boston Marathon bombing to continue the myth that we are all being threatened by terrorists. The entire War on Terror paradigm that we have all lived with since 9-11 was recently turned on its head when through its proxy Saudi Arabia, the US and Al-Qaeda (the CIA Database) threatened Russia with a terrorist attack. Dr. Kevin Barrett explained in detail all of these events and more in an exclusive interview with the Voice of Russia.

Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to Colin Powell, stepped forward regarding the Syrian chemical weapons attack, and said: “This was an Israeli false flag.” He cited his intelligence sources as saying that it was actually the Israelis that killed all those people with gas. He was just one of many people going “way off script” in the US regarding the heinous attack. Dr. Kevin Barrett in an exclusive interview with the Voice of Russia was very candid when he said it was stunning that someone like Saudi Prince Bandar would come to Putin and threaten to bomb the Winter Olympics and claim that he was acting with the full support of the US Government. According to Dr. Barrett the US government, threatening to bomb the Olympic Games with Al-Qaeda, through its Saudi proxy, turns the whole “War on Terror Paradigm” on its head.

The United States is behaving like an insane power, like the threat of the Nazis back in the 1930s and 40s. It’s out of control, and it’s engaging in war after war, violating international law and considers itself to be above the law. It is also the richest country in the world but it’s having trouble feeding its own citizens while preparing for yet another war. Dr. Edward Herman spoke to the Voice of Russia stating that and more, he also said it is time that the international community rose up and brought the US under control and has to take much more vigorous, hostile actions against the US war threats. He also called the Secretary General of NATO and NATO a menace and part of a US program for global domination. The world has to wake up and stop it!

President Vladimir Putin had a very busy and successful past week on the heels of a successfully hosted G-20 Summit . The President has been key to averting another act of aggressive war by a certain western power, and for those efforts alone is truly worthy of a Nobel Peace Prize. President Putin took part in the yearly Valdai Discussion Club, an event where top experts and some of the sharpest minds from Russia and abroad meet in the context of a global dialogue about Russia.
22 September 2013, 10:27
It may be finally getting to the point where the world has had enough of a certain country dictating to it, bombing it and attempting to shape it in its own morally bankrupt and ignorant image. The certain country’s illegality, ignorance, hypocrisy, flaunting of international law, wars of aggression, endless killing, threats of more violence, economic manipulation, spying and acts of aggression have gotten to the point where the elephant in the room that everyone has been trying to ignore the best they can is threatening to not only take over the room but to bring down the entire building.
21 September 2013, 16:42
The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin took part in the final plenary meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club and spoke on some of the most important topics affecting Russia and the world today. One area that the president paid particular attention was the political and civil society landscape in the Russian Federation which is still undergoing changes and developing after the collapse of the USSR. The summit of the Valdai Club was especially important as it marked the 10 year anniversary of the forum. The session was attended by over 200 Russian and foreign experts, influential political and social leaders and leaders from many different fields of expertise. The 10th session was titled "Russia's Diversity for the Modern World".
21 September 2013, 13:31
The United States of America continues to use the same playbook in their war for global domination against any country that they do not control: false flag terrorist attacks, demonization and then military attack disguised as intervention. 9-11 was the mother of all false flag attacks and was the catalyst for the endless war on terror that the unholy alliance between the USA, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Al-Qaeda have unleashed on the world. President Putin was absolutely right when he talked about the false concept certain countries have regarding their own exceptionalism in a recent. Dr. Kevin Barrett spoke with VOR’s John Robles on these issues and more in an exclusive interview for the Voice of Russia.
21 September 2013, 08:58
Plausible deniability, questionable “legal authority” cleverly inserted and obfuscated in appropriations bills and the like, lawmakers who are more interested in their own political well being, a terrified, disinterested, apolitical and pliable populace and a media that they fully control are just some of the things that the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), the CIA’s National Clandestine Service (NCS) and the Black Operations Group under the Special Activities Division (SAD) of the CIA, the Psychological Operations Directorate (POD) and the Shadow Government controlling everything, count on to get away with everything they do.

US war criminals continue to escape justice and the only hope is for the people to finally stand up and do something about all of the government illegality and war crimes that have been exposed by WikiLeaks. The organization continues its fight to expose the truth and has opened a door through which whistleblowers such as Edward Snowden may pass. In the final installment of a recent interview with Kristinn Hrafnsson from the WikiLeaks Organization, Mr. Hrafnsson gives his views on those matters and more.

To understand what some might call a “battle of civilizations” that is seeing itself played out in the recent events surrounding Syria, one must understand the roots and intentions of the players in what has become an international conflict. On the one hand we have the US with its stated intention of killing the leader of Syria and toppling the government, in order to promote their own influence and gain further access to resources and which has imported the worst terrorist elements in the world into the country to bring about their ends. On the other we have Russia which is interested in protecting its ally, ending the bloodshed and maintaining the rule of law. In the hopes of promoting understanding and bringing about debate I offer the following.
17 September 2013, 13:17
For the time being Russian President Vladimir Putin, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and the Government of the Russian Federation have averted another act of aggressive war by the United States of America. However this victory of peace and diplomacy over war and violence is not only one for Russia and Russia’s brave leader to celebrate, if in fact at this stage there is cause to celebrate, but one for every single one of us, from presidents to bloggers, who has done what we could to finally convince an out-of-control leader of a self-declared “single military super power” that bombs are not the solution to solving a situation they have stoked from the very beginning.
17 September 2013, 12:25
One of the most important roles of the Fourth Estate worldwide has classically been reporting on and exposing the illegality of governments, corporations and military powers. The media used to function as an important check and balance which served to make sure those with power acted responsibly, within the law, and served the best interests of the people. WikiLeaks is a champion in this role. In an interview with the Voice of Russia Kristinn Hrafnsson expressed his displeasure at an attempt to marginalize WikiLeaks by being called The Fifth Estate and a movie that is supposedly about WikiLeaks but portrays everything they do in a bad light. This is just one more example of how the government and the corporations now completely control the media in the United States and how the media aid and abets them in their illegality and crimes.
14 September 2013, 08:54
The CIA has now openly begun delivering arms and weapons to the terrorists and mercenaries operating in Syria to further “assist” them in the armed insurrection that they had been losing. The next move is air support and a missile attack.

Most people in the world remember the September 11, 2001 very clearly. It was a day when the world changed for the worse, when the world was terrorized and outraged by one of the single worst events in world history. Twelve years later no one has been prosecuted for the event and the world now knows that those events served as a catalyst and pretext for endless wars of aggression and domination against any country not under control of the United States. By attempting to convince the public that every independent, and even Russian leaning country, is somehow connected to terrorism the US has managed to launch wars of aggression against countries that never posed it a threat. The world has grown weary of American aggression. One man who has fought the military expansion of NATO and the US for decades, Voice of Russia regular Rick Rozoff, helped put the events into perspective as the US attempts to engage in yet another war of aggression.
12 September 2013, 17:29
The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin called Obama’s claims that the Syrian Government used chemical weapons "unimaginable nonsense" and US Secretary of State John Kerry a liar, and these statements mildly characterize what the United States is attempting to get away with, another Crime Against Peace. The way the United States is attempting to attack another nation based on lies and empty rhetoric as they continue their geopolitical remapping of the world, is a sign of Imperial Hubris. Voice of Russia contributor Rick Rozoff, from Stop NATO, gave his candid reaction to the latest war speech by the US' "omniscient" Commander in Chief.
11 September 2013, 17:29
The Government of the Russian Federation, including all of its ministries and governmental bodies whose scope of influence or operations include the exterior of Russia and in particular Syria and those countries influencing the situation in Syria, have from day one of the internal conflict fought to bring about a peaceful resolution to the conflict. The most visible efforts have of course been those of the Foreign Ministry of the Russian Federation and the Administration of the President of the Russian Federation and the President of Russia Vladimir Putin himself.
