The prospect of joining the EU is important for Balkan countries, said Angela Merkel. Her tour of the Balkans in the midst of the crisis in Greece was part of a geopolitical game, believes politician Nikolai Starikov. Continue reading
We decided to add subtitles to a fragment of an interview which Nikolai Starikov gave to a liberal journalist in Novosibirsk on June 18, 2015. Other parts of the interview deal with the problem of liberal opposition, fifth column and ways of defending the Russian state from destruction by the Western alliance.

“Relations between Russia and Poland have a very complicated history. At the same time, enemies Russia always tried to use the Poles as anti-Russian shock troops.
But there was a period in our common history which showed the clear and simple truth that Poland and Russia can be friends, and that a strong and independent Poland is not a problem for Russia, but an important factor in our common security.

Today I want to let an eyewitness relate the events.
His name is Valentin Berezhkov. He worked as a translator. He translated for Stalin, among many others. He left great memoirs.
On June 22, 1941 Valentin Berezhkov was in Berlin. His recollections of the day are invaluable.
We are being told all the time that Stalin was afraid of Hitler, and because of the fear he did nothing to prepare for the war. Another lie which has become common “knowledge” is that everyone in our leadership, including Stalin, was confused and scared when the war began.
