This latest gambit to trump up criminal charges against Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny is particularly lame.

Before you get mad at the Ukrainian Army for killing journalists, read this appalling tale:

Has the ultranationalism and Eurasianist Alexander Dugin been fired from Moscow State University? He says he was, and has not refuted Interfax claims to the contrary. Does it matter? No, either way, he has influence through social media which is more important.

Does he influence Putin? He himself explains how it works:

What happens when a Russian veteran of the Afghan war decides to go help his comrade separatists in Donetsk -- he comes back in a zinc coffin as "Cargo 200" -- and his widow has to storm the bureaucracy to get his body returned.
