It was midway through one of those purported interviews, in a terrifying flash of gunpowder, that Mr. Werner’s true identity came to light: He was, in fact, a Chechen assassin, the Ukrainian authorities now say.
Under the guise of a journalist, the assassin, Artur Denisultanov-Kurmakayev, tried to murder Ms. Okuyeva and her husband, Adam Osmayev, Ukraine’s Interior Ministry said.
The plot went awry because Ms. Okuyeva was also armed, and the details of the attack and its aftermath are now shedding light on Kiev’s role as a testing ground for what Ukrainian officials say are hybrid war activities by Russia, including assassinations.
The attack was the third high-profile killing or attempted killing in Kiev that the Ukranian authorities have attributed to the Russian security services
I think this is a fair, level-headed analysis:
Below is a video of the behind-the-scenes work CNN did to stage the photo-op with Muslims holding up signs that read, ‘ISIS WILL LOSE’.
1917-Bolsheviks allying with Islam while slaughtering Christians “Your beliefs customs cultural institutions henceforth free and inviolable”
Many Muslims in the Russian Empire were attracted to the Bolsheviks’ anti-imperialist stance, due to the imperialism of Western powers over Muslim nations. The Muslim Socialist Committee of Kazan (MSK; Russian: Мусульманский социалистический комитет) was established following the February Revolution.
Despite their hard anti-religious stance, the Bolsheviks in the years following the revolution and during the civil war, were in a very poor position to fight against Islam in Central Asia. Therefore, the Bolsheviks appealed to them as allies and promised them political independence and religious freedom. Lenin even voiced admiration of Muslims who had fought against imperialism and saw Muslim folk heroes as emblems of the struggle against imperialism.
In 1917 the Bolsheviks made this pronouncement to Muslims in Russia:
To all toiling Moslems of Russia and the East, whose mosques and prayer-houses have been destroyed, whose beliefs have been trampled on by the czars and the oppressors of Russia. Your beliefs and customs, your national and cultural institutions are declared henceforth free and inviolable. Organize your national life freely and without hindrance. This is your right. Know that your rights … are protected by the entire might of the revolution and its organs…. Support this revolution and its government!
Many Muslims embraced this call and saw this revolution as a means of empowering Islam. An influential group of Central Asian Marxists led by Sultan Galiev then took the initiative to try to reform Islam for the modern era and they were accepted by the state as a buffer between itself and the native population of the central Asian republics.
A couple of months ago, Czech President Milos Zeman made an unusual request: He urged citizens to arm themselves against a possible “super-Holocaust” carried out by Muslim terrorists.
Never mind that there are fewer than 4,000 Muslims in this country of 10 million people — gun purchases spiked. One shop owner in East Bohemia, a region in the northern center of the Czech Republic, told a local paper that people were scared of a “wave of Islamists.”
Now the country’s interior ministry is pushing a constitutional change that would let citizens use guns against terrorists.
Apparently a book called “The Jewish Century” by Yuri Slezkine celebrates the many accomplishments, including Communism.
From an Amazon review of the book:
Yuri Slezkine, in his book The Jewish Century, dedicates an entire chapter to the Jewish role in fostering Bolshevism. He provides the following facts:
• 40% of the founding members of Russia’s first socialist party, the Group for the Emancipation of Labor, were Jews.
• 60% of the communists who returned to Russia with Lenin on the ‘sealed trains’ were Jews.
• Over 40% of the Petrograd Soviet in 1917 was Jewish.
• About 25% of the Soviet Party’s Central Committee in 1919-21 were Jews.
• Lenin was part Jewish through his maternal grandfather.
• A majority of the “leading communists who took control of Russia in 1917 -1920 were Jews”. These individuals included Leon Trotsky (head of the Red Army), Yakov Sverdlov (Chairman of the Central Committee), Grigori Zinoviev (head of the Comintern), Karl Radek (Press Commissar), Maxim Litinov (Foreign Affairs Commissar), Lev Kamenev, and Moisei Urtsky .
• Half the key leaders in the Bolshevik central party in 1917 – the group that voted for the October 1917 revolution were Jews.
• Forty percent of the Military Revolutionary Committee in 1917 was Jewish.
• The first Soviet Politburo was over half Jewish.
• In the Ukraine, “Jews made up nearly 80 percent of the rank-and-file Cheka agents”. In other regions, Jews were also disproportionate represented in the Cheka.

I’m not sure what it means for countries to have twitter accounts, but @Ukraine and @Russia are going back and forth after Putin claimed that Queen Anne was Russian.
THE ‘VOLIA’ ALT-HISTORY STEAMPUNK COMICS BOOK, A FRESH LOOK ON THE NATIONAL HISTORY… “When me and my colleagues were digging in archival materials, we came across the photos of heavy bombers of the Ukrainian Republic: Zeppelin Staaken, navy, armored trains, Ansal aircraft of own production, armed forces, Skoropadsky’s luxury cars, pompous banquets Ukrainian delegation in Berlin and Kiev, Ukrainian Republic air fleet of 400 aircraft, little known territories of Ukraine far in Asia, etc. Then we’ve realized that it is extremely important to convey all we have seen to people in a cool form…
I think the Grey on the right are Ukrainians, invaded many times over, the ashes of Kyivan Rus.
Soldering is not actually the most dangerous job. But societies who don’t honor their warriors get replaced by societies that do.
