COULD UKRAINE CRISIS TRIGGER A NEW COLD WAR?(23.03.2017)

Could Ukraine Crisis Trigger A New Cold War?

The US’s last presidential race winner Donald Trump’s positive messages to Russia during the election campaign, caused criticisms from his opponents but on the Russian front, it created a rarely encountered public perception in favour of an American presidential candidate. Even after Trump was elected as the president, maintaining positive statements about Russia has stregthened expectations that the relations between the US and Russia would get better. Nonetheless, Trump’s National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s being recently resigned on charges of ‘some bargains’ were negotiated during a phone call with Sergey Kislyak, the ambassador of Russia to the US, before T...


PREVIOUS COUP MANIFESTS AND READING BETWEEN THE LINES (27.07.2016)

Previous Coup Manifests and Reading between the Lines

On 15th of July in 2016 an attempt of putsch was desired but it was prevented mainly by the resistance of the public. On the other hand, president Erdoğan’s call to streets was enthusiastically accepted by every part of the community can’t be ignored. All these happenings let the coup plotters down, and demoralized to see that they don’t have the public support behind them. We can easily say that physiological breakdown came afore the physical breakdown for the coup plotters. The 15th July’s shameful image of tanks on the streets turned to sublime images of people over the tanks against the coup. There are lots of things to speak and do about this unfortunate event but what I wo...


IS BELARUS COMING OUT OF ISOLATION?(5.03.2015)

Is Belarus Coming Out Of Isolation?

On March 3, in Moscow, Russian president Vladimir Putin presented his Belarusian counterpart Aliaksandr Lukashenka with the Order of Aleksandr Nevsky award. Ostensibly it marked his work in international cooperation in the service of the Russian Federation, linked perhaps to his hosting of the Minsk agreements of September 2014 and February 2015.Those agreements brought in the first instance a very short-lived ceasefire in the conflict in Ukraine, and in the second, a shaky peace, which put an end to major fighting after a short 60-hour delay around the town of Debaltseve, in Donetsk region, which was taken over by the rebels.A day earlier, the European Pa...


AN INTERVIEW WITH MAXIM EFIMOV ABOUT EUROMAIDAN(18.02.2015)

An Interview with Maxim Efimov About Euromaidan

Keskin: What is Euromaidan for you?Maxim Efimov: Euromaidan is a desperate attempt by the citizens of Ukraine to make a breakthrough to catch up for the time lost during the worthless ruling of the mentally deficient president Yanukovych, to speed up social and political changes and overcome the lag literally in everything.Euromaidan is an updated version of Ukraine. The progressive part of society has decided that Ukraine deserves a better scenario than the one written by the chief of garage Yanukovych under the dictation of the Kremlin’s puppet master, containing grammatical and semantic errors. Moreover, Euromaidan is an awareness of the unlearned lessons of history not only i...


INTERVIEW WITH THE PRESIDENT OF BASHKORTOSTAN(24.06.2014)

Interview with The President of Bashkortostan

Colonial subjects rarely voluntarily join an empire. Yet, in 1555 noting the advancing encroachment of the Russian Empire various Bashkir tribes approached Ivan the Terrible. Tribal leaders asked to join the Russian state as long as they were allowed to maintain both their Muslim faith and control of the territory they themselves had previously conquered. In the following centuries, the Bashkir Muslims proved loyal supporters of various Russian regimes and rulers. In 1813, a Bashkir Muslim unit raised to fight Napoleon passed through the town of Weimar,  where the German poet Goethe hosted some of the Muslim officers in his home for tea and cake and helped the Bashk...
