Russia
Moscow daily Kommersant called Corbyn "the most pro-Russian politician in the UK since the end of the Cold War", and highlighted his opposition to Nato, his support for the Russian position on the Ukraine conflict and his preference for appearing on English language pro-Kremlin television station Russia Today
.
Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey celebrated Corbyn's victory as a victory over Western political elites and argued in pro-Kremlin Pravda that his triumph would have "the Establishment on both sides of the Atlantic shaking in their boots".

Real Madrid play Shakhtar Donetsk in Champions League tonight

on Tue Sep 15, 2015 1:44 am
This will be very very difficult for Donetsk. They have not been in the best of form recently.
And they have lost some players, due to the war against Russia.
Game is live on the football channel -

On Football 1 channel. On Football 2 there is Man City v Juventus.
(Correction from earlier; Man U face PSV away. )
Spoilt for choice! Coverage of both starts at 21.30. 21.45 kickoff I would think.

Tickets at the Bernabeu for 30 euros -

Benitez about El Shakhtar. (Rafa - former Liverpool manager, now at Real.)
el Shakhtar: “Es un gran equipo. Dije que iba a ser un grupo no fácil. Tiene un entrenador con mucha experiencia y que saca rendimiento a los jugadores. Tiene jugadores de habilidad, velocidad y calidad. Va a ser un equipo complicado si no estamos centrados y le damos el valor que hay que darle”.

First victory for Ukraine against Russia’s torture-based ‘justice’ [Engl]

on Tue Sep 15, 2015 9:30 am
http://khpg.org/index.php?id=1442267241
Serhiy Litvinov’s lawyer Viktor Parshutkin was able to prove that the alleged victims and addresses where the crimes were supposed to have taken place did not exist, and a prosecutor’s investigation has established that the ‘crimes’ never happened.
The news is not all good. In order to save face, the Investigative Committee [ICRF] has fabricated a minor theft charge, however the lurid claims of murders, rapes, etc. to which Litvinov ‘confessed’ to stop the torture have been scrubbed.

==========

Very strange. Very unusual for Russia to drop charges against people, even if it is clear to the whole world that they are completely false.
Russia is a beacon for travesties of justice and corrupt judges and courts. Very strange.

RE: First victory for Ukraine against Russia’s torture-based ‘justice’

on Tue Sep 15, 2015 9:48 am
I'd look at it as an attempt to show the world that they're fair, when it comes to justice. Everyone knows that's BS. They probably want to view the other big cases as being fair, like Savchenko, Sentsov, etc....

Yes! Trying to save face.
