How to Fake a Coup and Entrap Opponents: The Confessions of A Ukrainian Defector

In the eighty-ninth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses front page articles from four Russian newspapers: Izvestia, Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Moskovsky Komsomolets, and Pravda. Professor Kovacevic presents the confessions of a Ukrainian defector to Sweden about the alleged machinations of the Ukrainian intelligence agency, the SBU. He also analyzes the Russian response to the newest round of the economic sanctions proposed by a group of the U.S. Senators. In addition, considering that the Russian-Georgian war took place exactly 10 years ago, in August 2008, Professor Kovacevic discusses the impact of the war on the capabilities and development of the Russian military. Lastly, he addresses the wave of social protests against the neoliberal policies of the Russian government taking place throughout Russia and organized by the dominant Russian opposition political party, the Communist Party of Russia.

    Player does not work for me. I am behind a vpn and running linux. When watching videos on the net there are many ways of capturing them so why not have an option for downloading?
