Quotes by Pepe Escobar

Darya Dugina“Not so long ago, the FSB was directly engaged in smashing assassination attempts, organised by the SBU, against Russian journalists, as in the case of Olga Skabaeyeva and Vladimir Soloviev. It’s mind-boggling that Dugin and his family were not protected by the Russian intelligence/security apparatus.”23 August 2022
ID2020“At the ID2020 Alliance summit last September [2019] in New York, it was decided that the “Rising to the Good ID Challenge” program would be launched in 2020.”2020'The Saker'
