In a small act of defiance, the offical portrait of President Robert Mugabe hangs behind a flag where it cannot be seen, at a business in Marlborough, Harare. 

Business owners in Zimbabwe have long been required to hang an official portrait of the former President in their shops and offices. Originally these were supplied by the Ministry of Information, but in 2011 Newsday reported that businesses in downtown Harare were being forced by ZANU-PF youth militia to buy portraits for $US60, or face eviction.

A symbol of Mugabe’s rule, many of the portraits were taken down in the wake of the political events that led to his resignation in November. However, some storeowners were still too nervous to remove them and preferred to wait until they were told to do so. In other places, the portrait was not removed because it had been there so long it had been forgotten.

Ukraine: Zombieland
Donetsk
By Sergey Ponomarev
27 Jan 2015

The war in southeastern Ukraine has turned the region in to a zombie-land. Ukraine has historically been divided into pro-European and pro-Russian regions. Donbass, in the east, has been a battleground since the 2014 revolution in Kiev finally snapped West from East. In this war, propaganda has become the main tool of manipulation, setting some citizens against others. Some locals have become so brainwashed by Russian TV that it appeared they had no opinions of their own, mimicking only what they have heard on TV. They gave their opponents offensive homogenizing nicknames, dehumanizing them so it makes it easier to kill. Youth gangs and armed groups became the main force in the region, seizing administration buildings and setting up checkpoints. Just as they were told on Russian state TV, they believed that a Nazi government, who would soon come to the southeast to kill them, now ruled western Ukraine. At the same time, Ukrainian propaganda was also accusing Donbass of fascism and treachery, using almost same methods to dehumanize separatists. The war in Ukraine has lasted almost a year and ordinary people have been turned into zombies absorbing the flood of propaganda that is designed to continue the war, propagate the criminal laws of the many small warlords on the ground and the hate that was spilled in the air.

02 Jan 2015

In 2014 Crimea's Karaites go their Simferopol kenesa back.

"The religious community of Karaites has sought for the kenesa for a long time. The decision has been made. I want to hand over the keys of the kenesa," Crimean Prime Minister Sergey Aksyonov said.

The kenesa was built in Simferopol in 1891-1986. In the1930s, the building was turned to Crimean state radio station. During the Nazi occupation, this building was used as a stable. Crimean Karaites are an ethnic group delivered from Turkic-speaking adherents of Karaism in Eastern Europe. Karaites first appeared in Crimea in 12th century. Since 15th century they gathered in Chufut-Kale.
