Black Sea
The Black Sea is a sea in Southeastern Europe. It is bounded by Europe, Anatolia and the Caucasus and is ultimately connected to the Atlantic Ocean via the Mediterranean and the Aegean Seas and various straits. The Bosphorus Strait connects it to the Sea of Marmara, and the Strait of the Dardanelles connects that sea to the Aegean Sea region of the Mediterranean. These waters separate eastern Europe and western Asia. The Black Sea is also connected to the Sea of Azov by the Strait of Kerch. The Black Sea has an area of 436,400 km2 (168,500 sq mi) (not including the Sea of Azov), a maximum depth of 2,212 m (7,257 ft), and a volume of 547,000 km3 (131,000 cu mi). The Black Sea forms in an east-west trending elliptical depression which lies between Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania, Russia, Turkey, and Ukraine. It is constrained by the Pontic Mountains to the south and by the Caucasus Mountains to the east, and features a wide shelf to the northwest. The longest east-west extent is about 1,175 km (730 mi).

Abkhazia's archive: fire of war, ashes of history
To whom it may concern, In addition to the many unspeakable tragedies of the Balkan wars, one act of cultural vandalism caught the world's attention, as it happened as the world's cameras were trained on Bosnia-Herzegovina. This was the destruction of the Library of Sarajevo, which stored manuscripts and other documents recording the multi-cultural heritage of the state, at the end of August 1992. With help from libraries and cultural organisations around the world, many of the losses were made good in the post-war years of reconstruction. Two months after the Sarajevo library was left in ruins, similar deliberate acts were perpetrated in another part of Europe in a war which was never the centre of media-attention, though the consequences of the war resurfaced in August 2008 with Russia's recognition of the Republic of Abkhazia in Transcaucasia. Georgian troops entered Abkhazia on 14th August 1992, sparking a 14-month war. At the end of October, the Abkhazian Research Institute of History, Language and Literature named after Dmitry Gulia, which housed an important library and archive, was deliberately torched by the invaders, who were bent on destroying the documentary evidence that proved Abkhazians' residence in their historical homeland; also targeted was the capital's public library. Though help to restore the losses has come from institutions and private donors in Russia, no further assistance has been offered by the wider international community. The short film you are about to watch is designed to alert the world to this cultural loss and thereby to encourage all in a position to do so to make the kind of help described above for Sarajevo available also to Abkhazia. http://circassianworld.blogspot.com/2008/11/history-erased-abkhazias-archive-fire.html For more information & contact: [email protected] ---------------------- Abkhazia's archive: fire of war, ashes of history by Thomas de Waal The documented history of the cosmopolitan Black Sea territory of Abkhazia was destroyed in war on 22 October 1992.

Popkov http://www.circassianworld.com/Popkov_Facts_Thoughts.html ----------------------------- A chapter from Sam Topalidis' book; 'A Pontic Greek History' Note 2.3 Ascherson (1,1995, pp. 253-4), describes how the State Archives building was destroyed during the civil war in Abkhazia. One day in the winter of 1992, a white Lada without number-plates, containing four men from the Georgian National Guard, drew up outside. The guardsmen shot the door open and then flung incendiary grenades into the hall and stairwel. ... Sukhum citizens tried vainly to break through the cordon and enter the building to rescue burning boks and papers. ... The archives also contained the entire documentation of the Grek community, including a library, a collection of historical research from all the Grek villages of Abkhazia and complete files of the Grek language newspapers going back to the first years after the revolution. Please note that this story was previously quoted in Agtzidis (Jan 1994). Agtzidis (1994) states on page 27 that, Kharalombos Politidis witnessed the catastrophe described above. Clogg (1999) add that these irreplaceable documents for around 45 Greek communities in Abkhazia included the only complete set of the Pontic Grek newspaper Kokinos Kapnas. This story is distressing, since records of my parent's families in Yiashtoha and Portch, near Sukhum could be lost forever.

Dumbbell World
Neal Ascherson's illuminating concept of the "Dumbbell World" was an accurate mapping of a tolerable delusion, up till the resurgence of the East. This short narration (text is lifted from Larry Lohman's work on Carbon Trading) and assorted images may amuse.... And Mark Curtis writes books that should be compulsory reading for anyone who believes that Her Majesty's Government strives to protect human rights.

Brexit is HELL of a mess for Ireland as hard border would be disastrous, Bertie Ahern says
Brexit is HELL of a mess for Ireland as hard border would be disastrous, Bertie Ahern says. Bertie Ahern, who worked on the Good Friday Agreement with Tony Blair and served as the head of the Irish Government for more than a decade, said people were now debating it again in the country. Newsnight presenter Kirsty Wark asked: “In a way, the Republic of Ireland should understand the majority decision in the UK to take back what they see as sovereignty from the EU - do you respect that decision?” Mr Ahern concluded: “Of course we respect that decision, the UK were entitled to have the vote and they’ve made that decision.

Den 17. juli 1936 startede den spanske borgerkrig, da et militæroprør -- anført af general Francisco Franco -- brød ud i Spansk Marokko. Samme Franco blev snart efter den officielle leder af Falangen -- den spanske fascistbevægelse. Oprørerne fik hurtigt fuld kontrol over den nordafrikanske besiddelse. De iværksatte øjeblikkelig en grusom terror og hævnaktion mod alle, som støttede den lovlige spanske republik. De, som blev taget til fange, blev øjeblikkelig henrettet. Samtidig hermed opfordrede Franco garnisonerne i Spanien om at tilslutte sig det fascistiske oprør mod republikken, og de marokkanske tropper blev overført til det spanske hovedland i italienske og tyske fly. Det fascistiske Italien -- såvel som det nazistiske Tyskland -- var fra første færd på oprørernes side. Det var alene deres tropper og militært materiel, som -- sammen med de vestlige stormagters såkaldte neutralitet eller ikke-indblandings-politk -- som i sidste ende sikrede fascisterne sejren. Dagen efter kuppet opfordrede den samlede spanske venstrefløj og de faglige organisationer regeringen til at give arbejderne våben til oprettelse af arbejdermilitser. Det nægtede regeringen, og det blev dens endeligt. Der blev dannet en ny folkefrontsregering -- denne gang med kommunistisk deltagelse. Nu blev der uddelt våben til arbejderne i Madrid, som allerede den 20. juli sikrede sig den fulde kontrol med Madrid. Det samme skete i mange andre byer og distrikter. Hermed begyndte et nyt kapitel i den spanske republiks historie. Og det var i sidste øjeblik. ...

Black Sea by Neal Ascherson
More Info : http://j.mp/2cOPtTA The author demonstrates, through the history of the Black Sea area and the disputed regions of Russia, Turkey, Romania, Greece, and Caucasus, that "the meanings of 'community, ' 'nationhood, ' and 'cultural independence' are both fierce and disturbingly uncertain."
