    Crimean Tatar political prisoner Akhtem Chiygoz & a schoolboy’s letter that gave him strength to fight on

    Just how much our letters mean to Ukrainians held in Russian captivity became movingly clear during a very special meeting on 19 March between former political prisoner Akhtem Chiygoz and 14-year-old Bohdan Fenechok. “Where is my friend?”, Chiygoz asked, after entering a classroom in Lviv.

    It’s time to get used to Russia’s new “normality”

    Russia / World It is unlikely that anyone was surprised with the results of Sunday’s presidential “elections” in Russia. Putin yet again confidently won with 76% of the vote and 67% of the turnout. The difference between this victory and all others is that this is the first presidential election since the annexation of Crimea...

    The Most Important Hearings Of The Young Century

    On MSNBC’s “All In” on March 13, I discussed how the removal of Rex Tillerson from the position of secretary of state was the final triumph of largely Republican efforts—but with complicit Democrats as well—to consolidate the making of foreign and security policy exclusively in the White House.
