    WW2: how many Soviet soldiers died in 1943 in the battle of Kiev Kyiv?

    This might be one of the bloodiest pages of the WW2. Apparently, no one had an accurate account of what was happening during the 1943 battle of Kyiv. There are publications showing that during 1-2 days of November 1943, approximately 1 million Soviet soldiers drowned in the River Dnieper...

    Mikhael Shakashvilli invades Ukraine.

    This is getting stranger by the day. Back in the early days of Georgian independence MS made his name for fighting corruption and his western educated media friendly nationalist style. It also helped that he was eager to help GW Bush in Iraq and so bring in western technical and financial...

    Bloody polonization of West Ukraine

    Polish politicians who speculate on the Volhynian tragedy and accuse militants of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) of the genocide of Polish population are leaving behind the fact that Poland herself was doing just everything to stir up the cross-national conflict. Intrusion of Polish army...

    In 1941 Stalin was offering Hitler large territories Baltics, Ukraine etc.

    This might be a little known part of the WW II history. First, I would like to include the link to the Russian newspaper Red Star describing in positive tone Hitler's speech on 1 September 1939 and other events of September 1939, when Russia was occupying new territories towards West...

    Was the 1654 treaty between Ukraine and Muscovy a temporary partial military union?

    This topic is getting an increasing attention. For decades, Russian and Soviet media sources were advertizing the Treaty of 1654 as a union between two “Slavic brotherly nations”. In fact the treaty meant subordination of Ukraine to Moscow with subsequent oppressive control over Ukraine's...
