Guys, I’m sorry for posting all these things about the Crimea crisis. Tumblr has to be entertaining. But this is my motherland, my lovely land. And these fucking russian troops are walking around the region.

It has been about a week. I don’t know. It feels like eternity since they invaded Crimea. I call my family everyday. How are they supposed to sleep? How am I supposed to go sleep either? If the hot phase can start every night, every hour.

Putin is a terrorist. He was said to fuck off with his Janukovich puppet. And now he simply sent the troops. He rapes my country, he sent soldiers and there is my family living there.

Fucking shit!

Hero of the day- this lady that didn’t sacrifice her integrity as a journalist even though she’s working for RT.

Hope she stays safe. I’m doubtful we will see her on air in Russia again.

(continues in German):

Abby Martin konnte sich offenbar nicht mehr beherrschen: “Nur weil ich hier arbeite, bei RT, heißt das nicht, dass ich keine journalistische Unabhängigkeit habe”, sagte die Moderatorin von “Russia Today” wütend am Ende ihrer Sendung. Die 29-Jährige ging durch ihr Studio in Washington, die Kamera folgte ihr.

"Ich kann nicht genug betonen, wie entschieden ich gegen jegliche Form von ausländischer Einmischung in die inneren Angelegenheiten eines souveränen Staates bin. Was Russland getan hat, war falsch", sagte sie live in der Sendung.

Deutliche Worte, die umso mehr überraschen, als Abby Martin in ihrer Arbeit eigentlich nicht ganz unabhängig ist: Sie arbeitet für Russia Today, den englischsprachigen russischen Staatssender. Wie bei anderen staatlichen Kanälen soll dort ein positives Bild des eigenen Landes vermittelt werden, doch nicht nur das.

Russland ist kein Staat, der sich der Pressefreiheit verschrieben hat. In den vergangenen Jahren hat sich die Situation sogar weiter verschlechtert. Im Ranking von Reporter ohne Grenzen belegt das Land inzwischen Platz 148.

Abby Martin war schon in der Vergangenheit mit kontroversen Aussagen aufgefallen und manchmal auch mit Verschwörungstheorien, allerdings noch nie mit Russland-Kritik. Seit 2012 läuft ihre halbstündige Sendung. Sie greift darin Themen auf, von denen sie glaubt, dass andere Medien sie ignorieren.

Ob Abby Martin ihre Sendung nach diesem Vorfall behalten darf, wird sich zeigen. Die 29-Jährige ist nicht nur Moderatorin, sondern auch Aktivistin, Gründerin einer Bürgerjournalismus-Plattform und Künstlerin. Zurzeit plant sie in ihrer Heimat, der San Francisco Bay Area, die Eröffnung einer neuen Ausstellung ihrer Werke.

When an invasion is not an invasion →

resistance-episteme:

So now, thanks to the Ukraine crisis, we need to revise our current understanding of the concepts “coup d’etat”, “invasion”, and “occupation”. See, when the US invades countries thousands of miles away from it, countries whose non-English speaking populations are overwhelming anti-American and…

There is a legend that Khrushchev did the transfer of Crimea as a gift. Indeed, the occasion was 300 of re-unification of Russia and Ukraine. But… The Khrushchev’s decision was economically justified if you consider it in this respect. If you ever were in Crimea, you might know, there is almost no water in the region. In 1961-1971they built the Northern Crimea Channel, which brings the Dnepr water to Crimea. Now this is 1.2 bil m2 a year, making 85 % of the water consumption on peninsula. Also, there is no power plant (except of some wind farms on the west), they are all on the main Ukraine. Both the gas pipe and the energy come to Crimea from Nikolaev. Also, the railway connection goes through either Kherson or Melitopol.

So if you consider the basic consumables of the region, there is no way to escape Ukraine. And it was better then when the development of Crimea was integrated to the Ukrainian republican economical development from the beginning.

Please, don’t think, the transfer of Crimea was just a gift. The Soviet heads were not as irrational as people sometimes describe them.

in 1936 Germany hosted the Olympics headed by an ambitious leader with plans for regional if not world domination. Three years later Germany annexed part of Czechoslovakia. The excuse was that they were ‘protecting’ German interests and German speakers in the country. The League of Nations was…

"Anybody heard of MRI? Anybody ever had an MRI?…NMR stands for nuclear magnetic resonance. They’re one and the same. We don’t call MRI NMR because people are afraid of the word ‘nuclear.’ That’s the only reason why we don’t call MRI NMR."

Professor M. (via collegeandknowledge)

Exactly my point!
