Serious sources are predicting that Russian president Vladimir Putin will send his forces into Ukraine — possibly under the guise of peacekeeping forces, as he did in Georgia in 2008. The chief of Ukraine’s national-security council has stated that the risk of Russian incursions is very high. And a Moscow source of mine with links to the Russian foreign ministry — who has previously provided accurate information — has said that Putin is considering sending in his forces within the next few days. A member of the German Bundestag, Marieluise Beck, has said that senior Russian diplomats have warned Berlin that Moscow’s military will enter Ukraine regardless of whether the EU imposes a third tier of sanctions against Russia...

The professor at the Royal Military College of Canada and former chair of the Ukrainian Canadian Civil Liberties Association (UCCLA), has taken it upon himself to lead the way and organize a stirring tribute to mark the memory of the thousands of “enemy aliens” who had their civil rights stripped, and were subsequently imprisoned during Canada’s first national internment operations of 1914-1920 following the implementation of the War Measures Act. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the War Measures Act — adopted on August 22, 1914 during the First World War.

Move over boys, because the Winnipeg Sun has a woman at the helm. Daria Zmiyiwsky has been named the Sun's new publisher. This is the first time in the Sun's 34 years that a woman has taken on this role. "When they offered me the position and said you'll be taking over Winnipeg and you'll be the first (female) publisher, I just went, 'Nellie McClung would be so proud of this moment,'" she said. Channelling the woman who championed women's right to vote in Manitoba, Zmiyiwsky said she wants to bring new energy and ideas to the Winnipeg Sun...

Over the past several months, Canada-Russia relations, ignited by the crisis in Ukraine, have become increasingly strained. Prime Minister Harper and the Government of Canada, backed by the Parliament (opposition parties included) and with strong support from the Canadian society at large, adopted the most principled position within G7 countries on the issue. Canada has been pushing its Western and NATO allies to force Vladimir Putin to back off Ukraine, thus restoring the stability of Europe and the global balance of power...

The ICSU condemns the horrific terrorist attack on Malaysian Airlines’ flight MH17 and the resulting murder of 298 innocent passengers and crew. We express our sincere condolences to the families and friends of the victims. The incriminating evidence points to Russia as the state sponsor of this terrorist act since Russia alone supplied and operated the BUK SA 11 missile battery along with radar and logistical support by the Russian military used to shooting the civilian airliner by its sponsored terrorists in Eastern Ukraine. International social media monitors noted that the terrorists themselves took credit for the attack on their Twitter account and Ukrainian Intelligence Services revealed a taped intercepted conversation between the separatist terrorists and their military advisors in Moscow admitting to the destruction of the Malaysian Airways’ flight...

The editorial page of The Washington Post is warning of the folly of appeasing Vladimir Putin, saying: When Russia was roiled by uncertainty and change in the 1990s, and even into the 2000s, it made sense to engage, and engagement did plenty of good. But something fundamental has changed. Mr. Putin has suffocated democracy, forged an economic model based on crony capitalism and carried out subterfuge and subversion against Ukraine. It is misplaced to suggest that all will be well if we can just sell Russia more airplanes and sneakers...
