Reliable NEWS from Donbass
"The mission of this site is media criticism and reform.
It was started in September 2014 by a group of expats living in Russia who felt that coverage of Russia is biased and inaccurate.
We received a huge response from volunteers, mostly in the US and Europe.
That the media is seriously malfunctioning regarding Russia is widely evident. But the problem goes well beyond this.
The problem is media control by a few corporations and interest groups, and their close ties with governments and business interests.
Instead of challenging, questioning, and fostering open discussion, they tend to promote those interests.
A free press is the eyes and ears of our democracies. If it is co-opted, we citizens, and our elected leaders, cannot make wise decisions.
We are growing by leaps and bounds, and by crowdfunding and direct fundraising, and ever more volunteer activity, we will expand to topics beyond Russia.
So stay tuned. We’re just getting started."

National debt: the No-nonsense Guide
"Although some of the facts and figures on this site are now out of date, the arguments and explanations should be as relevant today as they were back in June 2009, when this site was created.
The UK national debt clock is still ticking fast. We already owe more than £900 billionto investors at home and abroad. The Government says our debt will hit £1,043 billion by April 2011 and £1.2 trillion just one year later. Yes, that really is £1,216,000,000,000.
To pay this year's £43 billion interest bill, every household will stump up more than£1,800 in tax. That's not a joke - that really is how much it's going to cost you. The UK's national debt has become so astronomical that it's hard to make sense of it anymore.
But in this economic climate it's never been more important to understand how politicians spend our money and why they're running up huge debts on our behalf. Thisunprecedented level of public debt in peacetime has huge implications for Britain's economy and our future. Hopefully this site can begin to answer your questions."

IMPORTANT NEWS STORIES YOU WILL FIND NOWHERE ELSE
Widespread news coverage from across the world. Reliable source, interesting articles.
Russian news media
For news suppressed or ignored by Western media sources. Often more reliable on what is happening in the UK than our own newspapers and TV channels, most of which tend to be biased with the BBC at the top of that list.
English version of the Russian newspaper Pravda. Publishes articles on a wide range of subjects. Topics are addressed from many different points of view.
Excellent source of news about Russia and the world
Russian English-speaking TV station. Excellent documentaries and news programmes. Also available in the UK on Freeview channel 135. Despite accusations by detractors and sundry Russophobes to the contrary, RT is not a propaganda machine for Vladimir Putin's Russia. Editors and contributors have over its ten year history always enjoyed journalistic independence. This is clear from the very broad range of opinion expressed in the programmes. They set a good example in honesty of the reporting, also in quality and content. Highly recommended.
