If the U.S. Attacks, Russia Will Support North Korea

In the thirty-second edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from three Russian newspapers: Izvestia, Rossiyskaya Gazeta, and Argumenty i Fakty. He discusses the new Russian military equipment displayed at the Victory Day military parade in Moscow, the story of the Soviet pilot who shot down the U.S. bombers during the Korean war and its implications for the Russian attitude toward North Korea today, the Russian president Vladimir Putin’s surprise visit to his old KGB spy boss Lazar Matveyev, and the critique of the neoliberal economic policies, including the weakening of the ruble, by noted Russian economists.

  1. How about a special edition, shedding some light on media ownership in Russia? Perhaps with a visual chart to show which TV and newspapers are owned by the different domestic and foreign factions..

Newsbud Phase 3 Kickstarter Campaign has launched!

We have launched our Kickstarter Phase 3 Campaign, and we need your help again. We have 45 days to raise $115,000, and we know we can do it with your support!

We have taken enormous steps forward thanks to your funding of our previous two campaign phases. Now we need your help to achieve this next step so we can continue building our 100% people-funded independent media outlet.

Please help. Make a pledge and put the word out by telling everyone in your social-media networks.

Without you, we cannot achieve our dream of a media outlet that is nonpartisan and accountable only to its viewers and to the truth. Make a donation, subscribe, and activate others. They have rendered we the people irrelevant; together, we will make them irrelevant!

Thank you for all your support,
Sibel Edmond
