Some interesting development in Ukraine. A month ago, in my Announcement post, I mentioned the possibility of Moscow (and Novorossia) at least exercising the idea of Benya Kolomoyski as "Our Son Of A Bitch". That idea doesn't seem that far-fetched anymore. Evidently, Kolomoiski and Novorossia exchanged some pleasantries which come down to recognizing each-other as viable political (geopolitical) subjects. Zakharchenko today offered Benya to create independent Dnepropetrovsk Republic.
I am in no position to give an expanded explanation to this play--I am still very busy with translating the book--but it is clear that Moscow can, and if necessary, will play really rough if Kiev's junta will continue to follow Washington's orders. Meanwhile I continue to follow this remarkable development.
