  • I see a pattern. Former Soviet Republics outside get attacked, invaded and intimidated by Russia, unpunished. The United States and Europe saw governments predominantly friendly towards RuSSia and China, even allowing the Taliban to retake Afghanistan. Remember, i am a former Yanukovich supporter and one of Arkan’s tigers. If even a mind like mine gets confused, you can assume there’s some huge bullshit going on. It really seems the world has been hijacked by Putin, and things will only get worse until some US president will stop this mess. Cruz and Rubio seem to have the ballz. Let’s hope we will survive until one of these brave Cubans are elected!

  • Former President Mikheil Saakashvili, detained in Georgia, has gone on a hunger strike and demands to consider himself a political prisoner.

    According to the Georgian First Channel , the country’s ombudsman Nino Lomjaria stated this after a visit to Saakashvili.

    He is currently being held in the 12th Rustavi Penitentiary (SIZO).

    “I was interested in the conditions of detention, whether it was an exaggeration or not. He was detained today in one of the houses in Tbilisi, he was alone. There was no resistance, so no force was used,” said Lomjaria.

    According to her, Saakashvili asked for a meeting with the Ukrainian consul, as he is a citizen of Ukraine.
