[Last edit Mar 5]
Quemado Institute has decided to stop reporting news on Novorossiya. There is some possibility, we believe, that our efforts could inadvertently bring more harm than good to those we had wanted to help. This is in keeping with the Yogic Principle of Ahimsa, by which one strives to do no harm to any living creature, not even by accident.
The decision was made entirely on our own. There were no outside pressures of any kind. All files have been erased except for the commentary below, which we believe may have some historical value. That our decision to quit reporting Novorissya news happened on the same day we changed our website format was completely coincidental.
We thank our readers and followers who made the effort worth our while.

Update (Mar 5): We wish to clarify our reasons for not carrying daily Donbass news, as a number of questions have been raised. The bottom line is, we don’t want to endanger anyone in Donbass or anyone helping the Novorossiya cause, although we had no reason to be concerned for our own safety. The possibility of endangerment may or may not be remote. For example, foreign volunteers, such as the eight Spaniards recently arrested in Spain for allegedly fighting in the Novorossiya Armed Forces and now charged with “terrorism”, may face a tougher defence due to information exposure by alternate news and blog sites. Even if internet data could not be used as direct evidence, it could point to information that could be used in that capacity. This is just one of many possible examples.
It was the nature of our news column that concerned us, as it presented a detailed, comprehensive and concise catalogue of Novorossiya events. We realize, however, that there is little danger in posting commentaries and guest articles, which we will continue to do.
We invite guest columnists. Please leave a comment, giving us permission to contact you by email, if you wish to submit an article.
