The Eternal collapse of Russia says 'Despite centuries of predictions, Russia isn't going anywhere'. The article seems OK but at one point it attributes the MH 17 crash Eastern Ukrainian 'rebels' with weapons provided by Russia. This is ot clear to me. In fact Russia has been pressing for the release of the black box transcripts and the preliminary results of the investiation. And the west has been quiet about it after the initial accusations. It seems most of the news coming from the western mainstream news papers including The Guardian is propoganda and it is not clear where to look for real news except google search and sift through the material.
