“NATO does not want to allow self-determination of the Russians”
Interview with Prof. Dr. iur. et phil. Alfred de Zayas, international law expert and former UN mandate holder
Current affairs in focus: Were the elections in the Lugansk, Donetsk, Zaparozhye and Kherson oblasts in accordance with international law?
Prof. Dr. Alfred de Zaya: Referenda are fundamentally a human rights-compliant method of “taking the temperature” and determining the will of a population. Art. 1 of the UN pact on civil and political rights stipulates the right of self-determination for all peoples – including the people of Lugansk, Donetsk, Zaparozhye and Kherson – and of course the people of Crimea.
Article 19 of the Covenant stipulates the right of all people to freedom of expression. There is nothing more democratic than referendums. However, the UN has failed here. The UN has held self-determination referendums in Sudan, Timor-Leste and Ethiopia/Eritrea. But only after tens of thousands of people had been killed. The UN should have intervened earlier and held preventive referenda.¹
Are referendums irrelevant if they are not conducted by the UN?
Of course, popular referendums are important, even if international bodies ignore them. Of course, there are referendums all over the world, which unfortunately are not organized and carried out by the UN, but solely by the affected population themselves, for example the 1962 referendum in Algeria, which led to independence.²

Dragana Trifković is the general director of the Center for Geostrategic Studies in Belgrade, Serbia.
On September 8, a session was held in the UN Security Council on the topic of arms delivery to Ukraine by the West.
In the introductory part of the session, Trifković spoke about the weapons that were delivered to the battlefield during the war in Yugoslavia, comparing it to the current situation in Ukraine.
In the following interview, Trifković elaborates on that point for Asia Times.Serbian Analyst: How war in Ukraine resembles past conflict in Yugoslavia

ABC board members include journalist and historian [Neocon] Anne Applebaum, political scientist [Neocon] Francis Fukuyama, and writers Azar Nafisi and Iraj Pezeshkzad.
The Center receives most of its funding from private European and American foundations. It also receives some public funding, including from the National Endowment for Democracy. The Center claims to receive no funding from governmental sources [😂]. In 2010, the Ministry of Intelligence (Iran) listed the Center (then known as the Foundation) as a “subversive” organization.
Former US National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski famously described Ukraine as a “geopolitical pivot” of Eurasia, central to both US and Russian power. Since Russia views its vital security interests to be at stake in the current conflict, the war in Ukraine is rapidly escalating to a nuclear showdown. It’s urgent for both the US and Russia to exercise restraint before disaster hits.The Great Game in Ukraine is Spinning Out of Control

Former US Congressman Ron Paul has mocked the claim that a US-government-hired Iranian opposition figure is “leading” what Washington is projecting as a “freedom” movement in Iran amid deadly riots over the death of a young woman.Former US Congressman Ron Paul mocks US neocon ties to Iran riots ‘leader’
These days, the propaganda of the Mujahedin Khalq makes efforts to exploit the incidents in Iran following the death of Mahsa Amini, the Kurdish 22-year-old girl. Although the heartbreaking death of Mahsa sparked wave of protests in Iran, the MEK is absolutely incompetent to take any position in support of Mahsa or Iranian women in general. The group has a long record of women rights abuses and killing Kurds.MEK cult neither likes women nor Kurds

Since Ukraine’s independence in 1991, the United States has supported Ukrainians as they build democratic skills and institutions, as they promote civic participation and good governance, all of which are preconditions for Ukraine to achieve its European aspirations. We’ve invested over $5 billion to assist Ukraine in these and other goals that will ensure a secure and prosperous and democratic Ukraine.
As talks to revive the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) seem to have all but failed, the Joe Biden administration continues to pile sanctions on Iran. The Treasury Department said the new penalties targeted a “group of Iran-based malicious cyber actors” allegedly linked to Tehran’s elite military unit, the Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Al Jazeera reported on Wednesday.Washington Imposes More Sanctions on Iran Over Alleged ‘Malicious’ Cyber Activities
