I just returned from Donetsk and can tell you about my fresh personal impression. At first glance, the city seems calm, but this is only an illusion. The air hangs with tension, everyone understands that the escalation of the conflict can break out at any moment as happened in February.
If I can say a few words, by the way, about the hostility towards Russia that one finds here in the United States and maybe in the West in general:
In Syria, the goals of the United States and the goals of Russia are diametrically opposed.
The United States is not in Syria in order to combat ISIS, because ISIS is a tool used by Obama's administration to overthrow Bashar Al-Assad.
The whole of Italy was anxiously waiting for the results of the referendum. And when we understood that Matteo Renzi had lost, this was a triumph of the people. This is a very important moment for all Italians.
We have a double Trump effect.
The first Trump effect is on the media. All mainstream European media, especially German media, were lying to the European audience for 18 months.
If a nation's military intelligence intends to do something in life, it should not use armed birds and Latin proverbs on its brand new emblem. It should use something national.
A constitutional referendum is planned to be held this fall in Italy., in which a controversial amendment will be accepted or rejected , proposed by the Prime Minister of Italy Matteo Renzi.
