Published 2019-10-17 22:07:42 by Guest Author in Anglo-5, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Eu, Eurasia, Finance, Headline-News, Kosovo, Nato, Politics, Propaganda, Russia, Serbia, United-States

By Vladimir Gujanicic – Over the last couple of years we are witnessing anti-Russian hysteria in the Balkans, where Russia is allegedly involved in various coup attempts (Montenegro), assassinations (Azem Vlasi) or the destruction of the SFRY (General Grahovac). All of these alleged “attempts” by Russia always end unsuccessfully, with failed assassinations, coups or conspiracies discovered. Paradoxically, it is always the marginal second-rate politicians or states that are “targeted”. The Russian services, on the other hand, have been accused of poisoning their former agents with polonium by breaking through the defense rings of one of Britain’s best intelligence services, but… Continue ->

Published 2019-10-17 16:41:06 by Denis Churilov in Eurasia, Headline-News, Opinions, Russia

Back in the Middle Ages, Christianity was playing a major role in spreading literacy and knowledge. Interestingly, during the 11th century East-West Schism, when Christianity was being split into what is now known as the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Catholic Church, one of the theologian disagreements between two churches, apart from disputes over the procession of the Holy Spirit, was whether the holy texts should be translated into other languages.
