A Bookmarkable Resource: Russian Non-State News Snippets

Every once in awhile, we trip upon an intriguing international news resource.

The European Maiden Press provides oodles of news snippets about a part of the world we are hard pressed to read about. EMP reminds me of DemUnderground format sans comments. Short but informative collectively, a behind the scenes glimpse of a wide variety of subject matter.

I found this news site looking for information about Igor Yakovenko, pictured today with ex-CEO of Cambridge Analytica.


I am bookmarking the home page.


Not sure how I got to this page; however, these January, 2017 snippets are interesting.


Here are a couple of todays news snippets:

4. Bellona Says Russian Atomic Power Plant Unbelievably Unsafe
The international environmental watchdog group says that the atomic power plant Russia is building in Belarus is setting new records for unsafe construction patterns and warns of disaster ahead if these mistakes are not corrected.

5. By Lifting Visa Requirements, Belarus has Created a New Problem for Russia
Because border checks between Belarus and Russia are minimal, Minskís decision to cancel visa requirements for residents of some 80 countries who want to visit Belarus for five days or less is creating problems for Russia whose officials fear that those who want to enter Russia but canít get visas will come via Belarus

6. Rising Number of Kazakh Women Marrying Chinese Men Sparks Anger in Kazakhstan
Ever more ethnic Kazakh women are marrying Chinese men, a development that has sparked protest meetings and even calls for a legal ban on such marriages.

In the unsettling geopolitics we are experiencing coupled with seemingly limited news coverage stateside, it is helpful to skeptically read news from outside the western media. This Ukranian group provides some Russian news insights otherwise unavailable.
