The Empire of Lies

  The late President Ronald Reagan called the USSR the “evil empire”. Today we should be talking about the “Empire of Lies”. In his endless diatribe justifying his decision to recognize the independence of two entities of the Ukrainian Donbass, Vladimir Putin questioned the very creation of Ukraine by Lenin. The Russian President is in fact in the filiation of the latter that Alexander Solzhenitsyn had called an “evil character” (…)

Дом Игумнов, the Common House

Fotos of Ze Day (5): The Heart of the Heart

The Winter Olympic Games are opening today in Beijing in a context of great international tensions and not yet in a post-pandemic phase.

Marco Polo was the first European to mention it in the 13th century. Ambassador Serge Smessow brought back pictures dating from the end of the Soviet Union. Despite its remoteness, will it again be at the heart of a “Great Game”?
