About Tsarizm

Based in the United States, the mission at Tsarizm is to provide breaking international news, analysis, and opinion, with a primary focus on Russia, the former Soviet republics, Eastern Europe, the Balkans, and the Middle East, although other regions may be discussed. In other words, the territory once ruled by the tsars. We are not pro-Russian or anti-Russian, nor pro-Ukrainian, or anti-Ukrainian. We are pro-truth.

We do not support dictatorship but simply are attempting to provide information on the area, especially to the West, which we see as vastly uneducated on these issues. We present opinions from all sides. Readers can make up their own minds. Contributions are welcome and will be considered.

We have reporters in many former Soviet, Eastern European countries and are adding more every day. On Tsarizm, you’ll find information on breaking news, culture, travel, opinion, and analysis of the region.

As you can see, we are not into lots of graphics and bells and whistles that slow down the site. We are into presenting a lot of information in a simple, elegant way. The styling may change over time but that basic philosophy will not.
