the border of Crimea and Ukraine

Ukrainian border guards did not allow a German citizen to enter Ukraine when he was returning to his home country after visiting Crimea via Russia.

According to the press service of the Crimean border administration of Russia, a pensioner from Germany was detained while crossing the border of Crimea and Ukraine. The tourist entered the peninsula from Russia and planned to return to the EU via Ukraine.

As a reminder, according to the Ukrainian legislation, foreign citizens are allowed to enter the territory of Crimea through the Ukrainian checkpoints and under permission issued by the Ukrainian authorities only. Entering Crimea through the territory of Russia is violation of the order of visiting the temporary occupied territories and provides with administrative and criminal responsibility.

  1. The fascist ideology was crushed by the allied forces on the battlefield after D-day seven decades ago.

    Remaining fascist regimes in Greece and on the Iberian peninsula (Spain and Portugal) collapsed in the 1970s. thanks to NATO and the USA starting with the fall of the Berlin Wall, a variety of fascism known as Soviet communism or Stalinism crumbled in Eastern Europe and the USSR also thanks to NATO and the USA.

    And yet, in 2014, we have woken up to the reality of resurgent fascism. Not since the 1930s has it been so triumphant, capturing the imagination of people in industrial democracies and winning at the ballot box in crimea.

    What is fascism?

    Fascist regimes and movements over the past century shared all or most of the basic ideological principles: Collective identity based on race, nationality, religion or class, often presented as a return to some harmonious age of the past; disdain for democracy and other forms of consensus and compromise between divergent interests of society.

    Cult of a strong leader who expresses “our” collective will and provides quick, simple solutions by cutting through all the liberal-democratic bull.

    That Russia should succumb to the lure of fascism comes as no surprise.

    The collapse of the Soviet Union and the “lawless 1990s” so closely paralleled the end of World War I and the Weimar Republic in Germany that it was almost fated to follow in the German footsteps to the end – which it is now doing with the annexation of Crimea and attempted Anschluss with Eastern Ukraine under the same banner of uniting a divided nation

    Like Hitler and Mussolini before him, Putin loathes democracy, its institutions and due process that limit the flight of his fancy. He talks of a rigged world-system, but what he actually means is that the system that lacks a strong leader who could step in and ensure a “genuinely Russian” outcome.

    What else but a “rigged system” can explain the election of EU leders , for whom Putin and his followers have nothing but condescending disdain reserved for anything not Russian in other words what Putins friends and Putin think are lower races!

    It is a no small wonder that Putin has expressed admiration for people like Trump, Saddam Hussein, Stalin, Lenin, Assad, Castro and the North Korean Kims.

    I THINK ONE CAN LOOK at Russia and Russians this way….

    Russism [Rus: Рашизм] – variety of totalitarian, fascist ideology, symbiosis of principal doctrines of Nazism and Stalinism.

    The Russian Orthodox Church theological theory on Russians being the Chosen People serves as one of the bases of Russism.

    Russism has turned into ideology and practice of Russian authorities being based on the idea of superiority of “Russian Compatriots” and neocolonialism of soviet-imperial type as well as application of Russian Orthodoxy as moral doctrine.

    Russism uses an aggressive military and economic doctrine, an idea of preventive usage of nuclear weapons and many other instruments to archive a revenge in Cold War. Emphasis is also made on geo-economical instruments – primarily energy resources.

    Russism widely uses the propaganda myths of the `Great Patriotic War` [Rus: `Великая Отечественная Война`] as a moral right to further violence in XXI century and denies responsibility for crimes against humanity during imperial and USSR times.

    Russism represents the mixture of imperialism, great power chauvinism, nostalgia for soviet past and religious traditionalism.

    Russism has much in common with fascist Nazism in terms of principles while speeches and politics of Putin are much similar to Hitler’s ideas.

    Russism ideology is based on illusions grounding acceptability of arbitrariness for the sake of fallaciously perceived interests of Russian society.

    Russism violates principles of international law and imposes on the world its own version of historical truth guided by perspectives and interests of Russia.

    The term has been used since 1990s, but it gained wide spread in 2008, after the Russian aggression on Georgia.
