  • Ukraine needs a game-changer. In fact, it needs two, argue Jon Sweet & Mark Toth in their latest article in The Hill. The first is Washington’s unequivocal greenlight to use US made weapons, and other western equipment, to strike Russian troops staging along its borders — especially those near the Kharkiv Oblast. Russia is using this US restriction as a way to plan and execute attacks against civilians and to launch new offensives. Secondly, Kyiv needs a no-fly zone, and fast.----------Jon Sweet is an accomplished intelligence professional who served for 30 years within the Defence and Intelligence sector as an U.S. Army Military Intelligence Officer. He is now a freelance author, contributor and columnist for The Hill, The Messenger, Washington Examiner, Kyiv Post and FOX News. He provides an experienced military perspective on current world events.Mark Toth is a retired economist, historian and entrepreneur and has lived in US diplomatic and military communities around the world.

  • Harvard’s Lawrence Tribe has forcefully remarked, “there can be no justification for halfway measures, let alone for doing nothing while Ukraine is destroyed. Inaction is an illusion: it would represent a cowardly decision to appease and to encourage further aggression around the world.” Similarly, 80 years ago, FDR warned, “The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.” Interpreting that in the context of Russia’s illegal violation of Ukraine’s sovereign borders, Jeffrey Sonnenfeld argues that now is the time to act and seize Russia’s $300 billion in frozen assets to support a Ukrainian victory over an imperialistic aggressor. ----------Jeffrey Sonnenfeld is Lester Crown Professor of Leadership Practice and a Senior Associate Dean of the Yale School of Management. He helped catalyse the retreat of 1,200 global corporations from Russia, and now strongly advocates for seized Russian Central Bank assets to be passed to Ukraine. Sonnenfeld is known as the founder and CEO of the Chief Executive Leadership Institute (CELI), affiliated with Yale University and for convening Yale's semi-annual CEO Summits, which have drawn thousands of CEOs over the years to engage in off-the-record peer-to-peer conversations.We discuss topics such as "why the IMF naively 'endorses' Putin's fake economic stats."----------LINKS:https://som.yale.edu/faculty-research/faculty-directory/jeffrey-sonnenfeldhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeffrey_Sonnenfeldhttps://x.com/JeffSonnenfeldhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/jeffsonnenfeld/----------BOOKS:Resilience: HBR Emotional Intelligence Seriesby Harvard Business Review, Daniel Henning, et al.----------ARTICLES:https://time.com/6980510/russia-frozen-assets-ukraine/ By Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, John E.

The battalion is deployed in the East and doing some great work. A former colleague of mine from the 131st has been sharing a lot of his experience with the drone team. After speaking to my friend and the commander of the battalion, I now have a list of equipment that will be transformative for the entire battalion. These civilian/ commercially bought items include Alientech receivers, antenna and cabling. I'm particularly keen to include training aids for the battalion.

  • “A toxic flood of dark money has given billionaires and special interests a powerful way to rig the system secretly in their favour…” These are the words of Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, ahead of a debate in the US Congress around the Spending in Elections (DISCLOSE) Act. But this phrase could equally be applied to the UK, where Russian Oligarchs and dark money interests have been able to cleanse their ill-gotten gains for decades through the London financial laundromat. Londongrad is the phrase coined to describe the high presence of Russians in the United Kingdom, especially in reference to Russian money in London, permeating its service sector and securing political influence. ----------Casey Michel is head of the Combating Kleptocracy Program at the Human Rights Foundation, focusing on how dictators and autocrats use illicit finance and dirty money to remain in power. He’s the author of AMERICAN KLEPTOCRACY, on America's transformation into an offshore haven. His new book, FOREIGN AGENTS, will examine the explosion of the foreign lobbying industry in Washington, and how that industry has helped entrench dictatorships and upend American foreign policy.

  • Taras Byk's special mission is the breakup of the Russian Federation, a project that doesn't seem so far-fetched after the Prigozhin mutiny, and Putin’s endless aggression that is exhausting Russia’s military and economic reserves. Taras is a civil society activist and political strategist, who believes that Ukraine's Maidan Revolution, in which he participated, saved not only Ukraine but also Europe. Today we will be discussing the threat from a resurgent Russia, and the history of imperial expansion that sits behind it. Can Ukraine's stand for freedom and struggle against renewed Russification of its peoples hold the line in Europe between freedom and authoritarianism, between the rule of law and unimaginable barbarism. Can Ukraine's experience even help revitalise the idea of democracy and help us to become more resilience in the face of creeping nepotism, corruption, oligarchy, and aggressive autocrats?----------Taras Byk is a manager at Wooden Horse Strategies, LLC, a governmental-relations, and strategic communications firm based in Kyiv.----------LINKS: https://www.linkedin.com/in/taras-byk-09bb305/ ----------ARTICLES:https://www.atlanticcouncil.org/blogs/ukrainealert/is-putins-russia-heading-for-collapse-like-its-czarist-and-soviet-predecessors/ https://www.pravda.com.ua/eng/podcasts/6527f6aaefe26/2023/10/26/7425908/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QScdSVMz83A&t=2s----------SUPPORT THE CHANNEL:https://www.buymeacoffee.com/siliconcurtainhttps://www.patreon.com/siliconcurtain----------TRUSTED CHARITIES ON THE GROUND:Save Ukrainehttps://www.saveukraineua.org/Superhumans - Hospital for war traumashttps://superhumans.com/en/UNBROKEN - Treatment.

  • Safe Unsound | DocumentaryWhat is Safe Unsound about? Three Ukrainian families find a foothold in a remote corner of Ireland. How temporary is their life there? No one knows.----------LINKS:https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/d-j-b/safe-unsound-documentary----------THE TEAM: Daniel James Baldwin - Director and ProducerHannah Tookey - Producer Steve Lacey - Executive ProducerDaria Korsak - Editor and TranslatorJackie Teboul - Director of Photography----------In Spring 2022, the plight of Ukraine and its people was at the forefront of our minds and we opened our arms to them. Today, 6 million displaced Ukrainians face a souring of that mood, and Moscow is poised to take advantage the moment our emotional fatigue kicks in. Safe Unsound is a story about the human cost of war told from the perspective of three Ukrainian families containing three generations. In County Mayo, in Ireland, where they moved after the invasion of their country, they are far from the frontline, and very far from home.Victor and his wife Ludmilla imagined spending their retirement eating apples in their orchard, not learning English in an abandoned schoolhouse in Castlebar. Kate planned to learn to dance, not leave her law career and husband in Kyiv to work day and night to rebuild a life for her young children in the countryside. Maryna hoped to support her four kids and help them thrive, not keep the peace at home while her eldest daughter, Arina, works to make ends meet. This film explores these families' efforts to contribute to, and fit into, Irish society as well as their tireless quest for control, momentum, and independence.----------SUPPORT THE CHANNEL:https://www.buymeacoffee.com/siliconcurtainhttps://www.patreon.com/siliconcurtain----------TRUSTED CHARITIES ON THE GROUND:Save Ukrainehttps://www.saveukraineua.org/Superhumans - Hospital for war traumashttps://superhumans.com/en/UNBROKEN - Treatment.
