Pavlik, the rest of the world doesn't care about the difference you guys love to make between volunteers, mercenaries and regular Russian troops.
The world doesn't care not only because of those...

The whole region where the fighting takes place is full of small villages and small cities. Debaltseve itself was a small city.
Therefore the opposing parties must use those buildings to their...

Only because your math is severely lacking.
At the end of August the death toll was estimated at 2200. It looks like proficiency with basic arithmetic is not required in your line of work.

Can you name a single member of the government in any Western country who hasn't already been briefed by the intelligence agencies of his own country regarding the Russian involvement since...

The parallel investigation performed by the Ukrainian media came up with similar figures to the official ones, as far as the Ukrainian casualties are concerned. Unlike the Russian media, the...

It turns out the Ukrainians defended Debaltsevo at the cost of some 180 dead and 200 captured. The terrorists lost almost 15 times more men if we only count those whose IDs were collected by the...

In the particular case of the Hungarian irredentist claims, the central issue is "There were no Romanians in Transylvania when our ancestors conquered it back in the 10th century. The Romanians...

You're not the only one reading those threads. I've just used the opportunity you had offered me to make that clear for everybody else who might not be an old hand like your good self.
February 14, 2015, 04:01 PM
As a Greek taxpayer you probably have bigger fishes to fry. And for good reasons.
Our lives on the other hand are so boring compared to yours that we can keep ourselves amused only if we hate the...

Your questions have already been answered several times in "Vestigia Vetistatis". Just dig up the threads about Transylvania. There are several old threads, not just one, because every year or so...

As an European taxpayer I fully suport the ruining of Russia and puting the Russian natural ressources under the direct control of the European companies.
I also want the more competitive EU...

For a Marxist you aren't very diligent to check the facts first and then post, are you?
There is a whole thread dedicated to this genetics topic, do yourself a favor and read it.
You may find...

Unfortunately for you, the genetics is clear. You are simply Romanians, Serbs or Slovaks speaking Hungarian.
If you want to educate yourself on this apparently sad truth for you, feel free to...

Genetic evidence trumps anything else.
Genetic evidence shows the Hungarians are simply Romanians, Slovaks, Serbs or Germans whose ancestors adopted the Hungarian language. . Out of those 4, the...

Not so apprehensive, it seems:
The ink on the new ceasefire agreement hasn't dried yet and the terrorists have announced they don't care what was signed in Minsk.
Looks like the Pentagon can...

If the Ukrainians regain the control of their border with Russia, if the heavy equipment is withdrawn from the region and if the terorists are disarmed then I think Ukraine will foot the bill...

There was no way to cleanly separate the Serbs from the Muslims and the Croats in 1992. They are now more or less neatly separated thanks to a little bit of ethnic cleansing.
That was what it...

Which means in 101 AD when the war has started, the Romanization was still at least some 25 years before completion.
And king Decebal had probably recruited them even earlier, quite likely after...

We often forget that the Russians at Khalka, the Poles at Legnica and the Hungarians at Mohi were able to put up a good fight before being defeated. And in each case they had made a massive blunder...

The Romans had finished annexing the province in 46 AD, which is just 60 years before the end of the Second Dacian War.
I would say the people in the countryside weren't using Latin at home even...

It really depends on several factors:
1) How desperate Putin is to win.
I tend to believe the Ukrainians did use Tochka missiles in August, in order to slow down the Russian attack. If the...

According to the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense, the road to Debaltsevo has been re-opened.
Judging by what is said on various Ukrainian forums and military blogs, what had happened was the...

There is a full thread dedicated to the most recent genetic studies about the area. The short version is the genetic make-up of most of the Romanian speakers is pretty much unchanged since the...

Two sides agreed (the Croatians and the Serbs), one was pressured into accepting it, then decided to oppose the plan on very valid grounds.
The way events unfolded resulted in most of his goals...

We need to take into account that at the time many "Romans" were actually Thracians who spoke at home the same language as the Dacians (or a very similar one) and basically had the same culture. ...

So let me see if I get it right: the terrorists were mad enough to attack continuously for 2 weeks an area which had been intensely fortified by the Ukrainians during the last 4 months.
February 09, 2015, 07:02 AM
Some 4 lines in Wikipedia isn't exactly the best source for such a topic.
Do you know the difference between the first version of the Carrington-Cutileiro plan (made in February and rejected by...

After 2 weeks the terrorist offensive has fizzled out. What happened?
1) The losses were much higher than expected. Both in materiel (rather easy to replace as long as Putin is willing to foot...

You will stick to the Milosevic propaganda's interpretation of the events no matter what.
However in the end what matters is not the interpretation but the end result. Milosevic destroyed...

The economics argument was about the falsity of the accusations that Tito didn't care about the economic development of Serbia.
The reunification was bad because it was destroying the federation...

It seems that the Ukrainians have reconnected today with the group of soldiers who were defending Redkodub, a village south-East of Debaltsevo. They used the reopened road to evacuate the wounded...

The Ukrainian army is indeed hampered by the lack of certain types of equipment.
On the other hand the Ukrianians I know in the military believe they do need Western trainers, so they can learn...

If you bother to read that study of the Yugoslav economy you would see how the "social product" increased per capita in each of the regions, and how "social product" per capita was distributed among...

To those who think the 31% drop of the Ukrainian currency is somehow going to ruin Ukraine I would like to point out that in 1997 the Romanian currency lost more 40% in a single day. 10 years later...

Strelkov/Girkin is right: this conflict will indeed result in the Russian Federation breaking into 7-10 smaller states.
He is wrong on the cause, though. It would be broken by the West into...

The Ukrainian cell phone companies started to switch off their relays in the ATO area.
That can mean only one thing - the Ukrainian army has finally got all the secure communications equipment it...

The Romanian votes in Romania count less than the Hungarian votes every time the Hungarians get ~15% of the cabinet while they represent 6% of the population.
Hey, the Romanian votes in Romania...

In which way were the Serbs "hamstrung"?
In only one way: they could not automatically dominate the federation. They needed to first agree among themselves (Central Serbia and Vojvodina) and with...

It seems the "non-lethal aid" artillery radars provided by the US start to be used more often against the terrorists. Today it was the turn of a Russian battery of 6 self-propelled guns 2S1 Gvozdika...
