Russia Is Using the Past to Explain the Present

In his address to the Federal Assembly last week, President Vladimir Putin turned again to his favorite "historical" method of reasoning to explain to the Russian people what is happening in the country and the world.

In his opinion, Russia has a "right" to Crimea because it has "historically" been part of "sacred" Russian soil, and the West has "always" pursued a policy of containment against Russia.

Greek MoFA: Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Venizelos’ speech at the UN General Assembly High Level Meeting on Disability and Development (HLMDD)

Mr. President of the General Assembly
Mr. Secretary General

It is common truth that the synergy and collaboration of the international community constitute the cornerstone, the basis for an action. Today, we have a great opportunity to go a step forward in order to close the “gaps” and fight exclusion and discrimination. This HLMDD gives us the chance to underline and reinforce the existing connection between disability, human rights and development by advancing the mainstreaming of disability in development policies.

Για μία ακόμη φορά ο Πρόεδρος Ομπάμα δεν μίλησε για Αρμενική Γενοκτονία

Ο Πρόεδρος Μπάρακ Ομπάμα επέλεξε για μία ακόμη φορά να “χαιδέψει” την Τουρκία για την Αρμενική Γενοκτονία, μή εκστομίζοντας τις δύο λέξεις, σε μήνυμα του με την ευκαιρία της μαύρης επετείου από τη σφαγή των Αρμενίων, που διέπραξαν οι ορδές του τουρκικού Αττίλα.
Ο Λευκός Οίκος και ο κ. Ομπάμα χαρακτηρίζουν με την Αρμενική Γενοκτονία ως μια από τις μεγαλύτερες αγριότητες του 20ου αιώνα, αλλλά οι Αρμένιοι της Αμερικής δεν είναι ικανοποιημένοι καθώς προεκλογικά τους είχε υποσχεθεί ότι σαν Πρόεδρος θα καταδίκαζε τις σφαγές που διέπραξαν οι Τούρκοι. Αναφέρεται σε 1,5 εκατομμύριο Αρμένιους που σφαγιάστηκαν ή οδηγήθηκαν στο θάνατο και όπως αναφέρει τιμά μαζί με όλο τον κόσμο τη μνήμη τους.

Greek police 'battered four terrorist suspects then launched cover-up'

Authorities urged to investigate 'Guantanamo' style tactics allegedly used on four men caught during bank robberies
Greek authorities on Monday faced an uproar after allegations that police had brutally beaten four suspected members of a local terrorist group before publishing manipulated mugshots of the men in a crude attempt to disguise their injuries.
A prominent Athens prosecutor ordered an investigation after relatives of the men – aged between 20 and 24 – accused Greek police of adopting "Guantanamo- style" tactics.
There was a public outcry (?) after the media published doctored pictures of the suspects who were arrested on Friday after attempting to rob two banks in the crisis-hit north. Despite digitally altering the photos the detainees bruised eyes and lips were  in Athens

Ethnic Turkish Chief: Bulgarians Turned Dogan's Attacker into Martyr

Instead of condemning the attack against ethnic Turkish leader, Ahmed Dogan, Bulgarians are demonstrating a dangerous trend of turning the attacker into a victim.
The statement was made by Lyutvi Mestan, the newly elected Chairman of the ethnic Turkish party Movement for Rights and Freedoms, DPS. Speaking for TV+ Wednesday, Mestan said the assailant has been made looking like a martyr and a hero, which was a demonstration of the flaws of Bulgarian democracy which violate texts in the country's Constitution.
The ethnic Turkish leader further stated that even senior officials in Bulgaria have shown deep ignorance about integration of minorities, interpreting it simply as accepting "their way of life."

Did a culture of insatiable greed turn an entire generation into crooks?

16 Aug 2012 (neoskosmos)
Many of my generation were born long before electricity had reached our rural areas and started our lives with many beautiful human values such as respect for self and for others, love and pride for family, religion and country. We were taught to live within our means. Very good values to build a truly better world to live in.
Our forefathers were living within their means and they never thought of going into the black hole of borrowing to have comfortable lives and let others pay their bills. They delivered to us economies debt-free or with minimal debts.

French cabinet under fire over Roma expulsions

Rights groups have accused France’s Socialist leaders of abandoning electoral promises by continuing the arbitrary expulsions of Eastern European Roma that were begun under former President Nicolas Sarkozy.
The French association La Voix des Roms (Voice of the Roma) yesterday (12 August) compared Interior Minister Manuel Valls’ policy of dismantling Roma camps to that of his centre-right predecessors.
The association suggested in statements that Valls, a prominent figure of the French Socialists, should wear the colours of Sarkozy’s UMP party at the next presidential election in 2017.

Genocide of the Ukrainians and achievements of humaneness

N. Lygeros (OPUS)
Translated from the Greek by Evi Charitidou

In Greece the genocide of the Ukrainians is almost unknown. Holodomor has not been heard not even as a word. Whereas 17 countries have already recognized the genocide of the Ukrainians as a crime against humanity. In a way we could say that as to Greek standards this has been a successful genocide, since society has either forgotten it or is indifferent to it. However, this does not mean that victims and executioners do not exist.
