The US continues its practice of creating zones and lines of chaos in key regions of the world. In the 2000s, it started a campaign to create an arc of instability stretching from Northern Africa to the east of the Central Asia. Now, more and more signals appear showing that there is a new project – to create a crescent of instability in Eastern and South-Eastern Europe. These campaigns actively exploited the religious factor in an attempt to undermine and discredit traditional religious systems. In the case of the Middle East, the target is Sunni Islam. It is being targeted by instigating various Islamic sects. In Eastern and South-Eastern Europe, various artificial schismatic groups are used to combat the canonical Orthodox Church. In both cases, foreign powers have also been exploiting and supporting exotic sects, new-age-style beliefs and other “neo-liberal” constructs.
A Ukrainian general in Donbas ignored the orders of President Zelenskyy to establish a ceasefire. Instead, he ordered to continue military actions.
This message is aimed to question the powers and legitimacy of Ukrainian authorities and is consistent with a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Ukrainian statehood. There have been no statements made by President Zelenskyy or his representatives concerning the alleged violation of ceasefire by the Ukrainian Army and insubordination of high-ranking military officers to Ukraine’s president. The claim concerning insubordination is based on a statement of a security functionary from the unrecognized Luhansk People's Republic and has not been confirmed by other independent sources.
