Economic Sanctions continue. War Exercises proliferate in the Black Sea and newly NATO puppet states on Russia’s borders.
And there is a new twist to the escalating insane attacks on Russia….
Only 15% of the population of Crimea are Tatars and just four of them have been sentenced and 5 more ARRESTED and accused of ‘extremism’- Oh horror this is Genocide!- screams the western press and politicians.
The ultra nationalist Tatars claim to be the original inhabitants of the Crimean peninsula, which voted 96.77% to rejoin Russia after the 2014 coup in Ukraine, though there have always been many other ethnic minorities.
So what?.. This is called the ANNEXATION of Crimea in the west, (although Crimea was a part of Russia until gifted to Ukraine by Stalin in 1954) and deserving of World War Three to return it to Ukraine, though we would all be dead ‘many times over’ by then.
It’s not that the totalitarian Russian state cares that much about Crimea, though it has their biggest naval base, one of just a handful outside Russia, while the US has hundreds.
It’s that Russia must set a red line somewhere as NATO has recruited more and more client states and nuclear bases are threatened just ‘minutes by megadeath’ from Moscow.
So, the western media is ramping up to exploit the ‘Tatar Genocide’ card, as it did effectively with the false Xinjiang Genocide campaign in China. We may now expect some false flag incidents, blockades, new sanctions, and military support with attacks, from Ukraine with Polish brigades, etc.
It’s not as if the Russians, or rather Soviet Union, is innocent in all this. The Tartars were the worst case of minorities deported under Stalin’s paranoid policies for supporting the Nazi invasion which killed 26,600,000 people in Russia.
Many Tatars , like the Ukranians, supported Hitler’s genocidal attack on Russia, the Tatar Legion in the Nazi army and the religious and political leaders helped Hitler during the German occupation, which is no excuse for deporting the whole population and gifting their land to Ukraine. (And Tatar mercenaries also fought bravely in the Red Army).
The exile of the Tatars was finally ended in 1989. Many Tatars returned to Crimea though now a small 15% minority, many preferred to stay in Uzbekistan, Turkey or Romania. Russia apologised and declared the Tatar deportation to be a great Crime.
But tensions continue. None of this is forgotten in Crimea or Ukraine… or in Russia where attacks by the Ukrainian and Polish ultra right, allied with Western NATO militarism, is viewed as a historical continuation of the anti-nazi struggle.
In Russian eyes Ukraine, which is ignored and rarely criticized in the controlled western media, is by now a nest of ultra and anti semitic fascism, dominating the media, military and every aspect of life, and bankrolled by the West…

Kosovo II: U.S., EU enter fray over Crimean Tatars
As Vladimir Putin’s strategic partner Recep Tayyip Erdoğan organizes Tatar separatism in Crimea and arms the Ukrainian government for war over the peninsula. And as Russia arms Turkey.
August 19. 30th anniversary. Hold the date.
The U.S. Embassy in Ukraine has condemned the sentencing of four Crimean Tatars by a military court of the Russian Federation and the detention of five more Crimean Tatar activists.
“We condemn Russia’s sentencing of 4 Crimean Tatars to 12-18 years in prison on fabricated “extremism” charges and the detention of 5 more Crimean Tatar activists,” the embassy posted on Twitter.
The European Union considers Russian military court sentences for four Crimean Tatars illegal. Peter Stano, the representative of the EU External Action Service reported that on Twitter.
“We call on Russia to ensure full compliance with international human rights standards and other obligations under international law in the illegally annexed Crimea”, the official wrote.
“According to the available information, after searches at 4:00, at the houses of the Crimean Tatars in Simferopol and Bakhchisarai regions of the temporarily occupied Republic of Crimea and in Balaklava and Nakhimov districts of the city of Sevastopol, five citizens of Ukraine were illegally detained, all Crimean Tatars: Imam Raif Fevziev and activists Rustem Murasov, Rustem Tairov, Dzhabbar Bekirov, Zaur Abdullayev,” the statement reads.
It notes that the Russian Federation is once again “using its repressive apparatus to persecute and intimidate representatives of the disloyal Crimean Tatar people, suppress freedom of religion, and oust the indigenous people, the Crimean Tatars, from the occupied peninsula.”
“The persecution of the Crimean Tatars by the occupation authorities is religiously motivated and I demand the immediate release of our fellow citizens,” she [Verkhovna Rada human rights commissioner Liudmyla Denisova] said.
