Release of Nemtsov Report Due May 28

Many are wondering which ideology Russia is following: ethnic Nationalism or an Eurasian cult of personality? It doesn't really matter. This much is sure: it will be pre-modern in mentality, collectivist in nature and the people will be subordinated to the state. Some think that's hot!

UPDATE: On Thursday, May 28, 2015 the Atlantic Council is presenting the English translation of the Nemtsov report. The Atlantic Council report, Hiding in Plain Sight: Putin’s War in Ukraine, provides irrefutable evidence exposing the breadth and depth of Russian military involvement in Ukraine’s east. Drawing upon publicly available information, the report documents the movement of Russian troops from training camps into Ukraine. It also demonstrates that many artillery strikes on Ukraine originate in Russia and examines the wide array of Russian military equipment in the hands of so-called separatist forces. Boris Nemtsov, the Russian opposition leader murdered in view of the Kremlin in Moscow on February 27, 2015, reached the same conclusion: Putin’s war is being fought in Ukraine at the cost of Russian lives. Published posthumously in Russian, Nemtsov’s report, Putin. War., will be released for the first time in English by the Free Russia Foundation. (Source)
