An FBI report kept secret for 25 years said the Soviet Union "quite likely fabricated" evidence central to the prosecution of John Demjanjuk — a revelation that could help the defense as closing arguments resume Wednesday in the retired Ohio auto worker's Nazi war crimes trial in Germany.
10 April 2011 Warsaw, Poland. Tens of Thousands of people commemorated the anniversary of death of then President Lech Kachinsky and 95 people killed in plane crash in Russia a year ago.

Over the last few years a pattern has emerged in the RF – an unrelenting war against perceived enemies of the state, including ethnic communities not kowtowing to govern- pressure and the executive branch exploiting the legislative and judicial to implement its policies. Ukrainians in Russia have felt this pressure. Murders of Ukrainian activists remain unsolved. A Ukrainian language class at a Moscow public lyceum has been discontinued and very recently a Moscow library of Ukrainian literature was ransacked, shut, reopened, then ransacked and its head librarian assaulted.
“We deplore the way that Bilozerska has again been treated as a suspect when all she did was inform the public as a journalist,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We call on the Ukrainian police to respect the law and return her professional equipment to her. Their actions pose a serious threat to media freedom and seem designed to intimidate journalists and encourage them to censor themselves.”
The US National Archives’ sensational new report on the CIA’s complicity in protecting Nazi war criminals during the Cold War, including alleged Ukrainian war criminals, is shockingly similar to something that the Soviet KGB could have cooked up.
