About George
George Eliason is a journalist based in Roven'ky, Luhans'ka oblast, Ukraine. In 2014, I was the only journalist to go across the entire region doing invasive passport and weapons checks on the militias fighting here. 
From early 2014 I broke most of the important stories from the region. I scooped the world on the start of the conflict and had articles in print before Russian or other Western media sources had time to react to what was going on.  I did the first English interview with Prizrak commander Alexey Mozgovoy in 2014.

I write a lot of in-depth analysis and get cited by academics. Some of my articles have been reprinted in academic resources and by NGO's concerned with the region. My articles have been featured in media from both sides of the conflict. 
I've done interviews with the BBC, Press TV, RT, and others about the war. 
I am currently set up for video work.

Despite low approval ratings and concerns about his age and mental acuity, Biden is set for a rematch with Donald Trump, who is expected to be the Republican nominee. Biden's campaign focuses on contrasting his support for Ukraine and NATO expansion with Trump's admiration for Putin. However, Biden's presidency has been criticized for the mishandled withdrawal from Afghanistan, inadequate handling of immigration, and his advanced age.

The Rise of Ukraine’s Ultra-Nationalist Christian Church

25 Oct 2018  |  mintpressnews.com
The Patriarchate of Constantinople's decision to grant the Ukrainian Orthodox Church independence from the Russian Orthodox Church is creating a significant schism in Christian history. This move, seen as political rather than ecclesiastical, has led to a lawsuit by the Turkish Orthodox Church and could result in a criminal trial for Patriarch Bartholomew. The Ukrainian Orthodox Church, supported by nationalist churches in the US and Canada, is portrayed as a nationalist political church, with leaders like Filaret being criticized for their schismatic actions. The article suggests that this religious independence is part of Ukraine's broader political strategy against Russia, with President Poroshenko using it to bolster his re-election campaign. The narrative also touches on the historical context of Ukrainian nationalism and its association with Nazi collaboration during WWII.

It also raises concerns about Gulen's activities in the United States, suggesting he has established a political organization akin to a government in exile. The article questions the legality and implications of hyphenated-Americans supporting Gulen's agenda against US interests and suggests a reevaluation of dual citizenship's role in the political landscape.
