In any complex situation, like that in the Ukraine, it is important to look at things from a variety of perspectives. As usual, the cartoon-like Western narrative is horrendously over-represented, but thankfully the Russian narrative is not entirely neglected, not least through Russia Today, a host of sympathetic nationalist websites and Facebook pages, and even metapolitical gimmicks like the Natalia Poklonskaya internet meme! The Ukrainian nationalist viewpoint, however, remains almost totally obscured, except where it happens to coincide with that of the West.

Recently, to counter this information vacuum, the UKRAINIAN NATIONALISM/THIRD POSITION blog was set up, supplying information in English. Anyone who wishes to have a more rounded view of the situation is recommended to at least to follow this blog, bearing in mind, of course, that it will probably have some of its own understandable biases.
