The 35 for 35 prisoner swap between Ukraine and Russia once again revealed the two-faced stance of the so-called ‘Civilized World’ towards the MH17 tragedy in eastern Ukraine. Ahead of the prisoner swap, the Netherlands urged Ukraine to not hand over Vladimir Tsemakh to Russia. By this move, the Netherlands admitted that it is not a neutral side and is not interested in an objective investigation of the MH17 tragedy. The Dutch side had a lot of time to question the supposed witness. However, this was not enough and it wanted the person to remain in Ukraine, where Tsemakh would be subjected to constant physical and psychological pressure. The Dutch government, which is allegedly a neutral side in the MH17 case, is de facto impeding the objective investigation of the tragedy.
The goal of the organizers of the [June 20 – 21] coup d’état in Georgia was to make Georgia an authoritarian, criminal, client state with American military bases which defies international law and to establish a new model of the government of former president Mikheil Saakashvili. The Georgian government has serious challenges since anti-Russian radicalism in Georgia is nurtured by Western grants and the US Democratic Party.
Recurring pro-Kremlin narratives on protests in Georgia, Russophobia, and the US global role. Background: The protests in Georgia began spontaneously on the morning of June 20th, when a Russian MP from the Communist Party, Sergei Gavrilov, addressed delegates from the Georgian Parliament Speaker's seat during an annual meeting of the Inter-parliamentary Assembly on Orthodoxy (IAO). The opposition boycotted the presence of the Russian delegation in Tbilisi, which then grew to the protests in front of the Parliament. As a response, Russia has temporarily banned Georgian airlines from flying to Russia and called on Russian citizens in Georgia to leave the country.
