Are Finns and Hungarians Turks? The difference between Turanism and Pan-Turkism

Many confuse Pan-Turkism with Turanism, including sometimes the Hungarian Prime Minister Orban. However, one can forgive him for that.

Forget the tears. The West is happy that Russia has attacked Ukraine

At first it may seem of course a terrible thing even to just entertain such a thought.

Poland is not going to leave the EU, but the EU is at yet another crisis point

Relations between Poland and the EU have been tense since at least 2015, when the Polish conservative party “Prawo i Sprawiedliwosc” (“Law and Justice”) won the elections after a 8-year rule by the pro-European “Citizen platform”. These relations took another turn for the worse when a few weeks ago the Polish Constitutional Court deemed some […]

СМИ активно идеализировали и приукрашивали Европу, чтобы отвратить людей от ностальгии по советским временам, бытовавшей в украинском обществе в 1990х и начале 2000х. Такая ностальгия была вызвана резким ухудшением […]
