Putin admits Russian media ‘cooking’ the news, Zaidman says

Post by Admin on Fri May 20, 2016 3:57 am

Vladimir Putin to Russian media: "I imagine how difficult it is to do that – to work constantly and cook up these information blinis on the stove.” (May 19, 2016)

Last Friday, Vladimir Putin not only made an amazing admission of what he and his regime have been doing in the information sphere but also introduced an aphorism that is likely to survive him just as Viktor Chernomyrdin’s phrase “we wanted better but it turned out just like always” has outlived him, Izrail Zaidman says.

In his message on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the All-Russian State Television Company, the Moscow commentator notes, Putin praised its staff for breaking “the information monopoly” that he said “certain of our opponents” have had in the world’s media................

U.S. House Backs Increase In Defense Spending For European Deployments

Post by Admin on Fri May 20, 2016 3:59 am

The U.S. House of Representatives has passed a new $602 billion defense policy bill that backs increased spending for bolstered military deployments in Europe.

The bill, which was approved by a vote of 277-147 on May 18, also highlights persistent concerns about Russian surveillance flights over the United States.

The House bill still must be reconciled with a Senate version before going to President Barack Obama for his signature.

Much of the wrangling over the House version of the bill centered on Democratic lawmakers’ efforts to rein in the war powers that Obama has used to wage battle against militants from the so-called Islamic State, and efforts to close the U.S. military's detention center at Guantanamo, Cuba.

But the bill also takes aim at Russian actions in Europe, backing a quadrupling in spending requested by the Defense Department to help calm nervous NATO allies in Eastern Europe.

The bill also reflects nervousness among some policymakers and legislators about surveillance flights that Russia has requested to make over the United States under a 2002 treaty................

Russian performance artist convicted of vandalism for pro-Ukraine protest

Post by Admin on Fri May 20, 2016 4:51 am

A Russian court on Thursday convicted a radical artist with a penchant for self-mutilation on vandalism charges for a 2014 performance celebrating the mass street protests in Ukraine that helped topple pro-Kremlin President Viktor Yanukovich.

Officials said the artist, Pyotr Pavlensky, will not serve prison time for the 16-month sentence announced Thursday because the statute of limitations had expired in the case.

But he remained in custody and faces charges in a separate case involving fire being set to the doors of the Moscow headquarters of the Federal Security Service, Russia’s main successor to the Soviet KGB, in November.

The 2014 case involved Pavlensky and several other performance artists building a barricade with tires, scrap metal and wood on a bridge in St. Petersburg. They hoisted Ukrainian flags and set the barricade afire to support the pro-Western protesters on Maidan square in the Ukrainian capital, Kiev, who burned tires to create a smokescreen against snipers in February 2014. Yanukovich left Kiev late that month and went to Russia.......................

Tortured Ukrainian ‘Sentenced’ by Kremlin-backed militants to 30 years

Post by Admin on Fri May 20, 2016 5:35 am

A Ukrainian volunteer fighter from Makiyivka who is on Ukraine’s list for exchange has been ‘sentenced’ to 30 years in the so-called ‘Donetsk people’s republic’ [DNR]. The Kremlin-backed militants have ‘convicted’ Yevhen Chudnetsov of “an attempt to violently seize power on the republic’s territory”. This comes around 14 months after Chudnetsov was captured and tortured into ‘confessing’ for Russian television.

The official agency DAN states that the DNR ‘Supreme Court’ has sentenced Chudnetsov who is described as a fighter from the Azov Battalion, and reports this as a fresh announcement just received from the so-called court. Chudnetsov is alleged to have aimed at violently seizing power and changing by force the “constitutional order of the Donetsk people’s republic”. He is supposed to have taken direct part in battles with the militants in the Novoyazovsk district and in suburbs of Mariupol.

Since the same ’30-year sentence’, together with threats of applying the ‘death penalty’, were reported a few months ago, it is possible that this ‘sentence’ has been dredged up now to heighten the stakes in negotiations over an exchange or over the Minsk accords in general.

In February the so-called DNR ‘ombudsperson’ Darya Morozova spoke of Chudnetsov in an interview for Novaya Gazeta where she claimed that the DNR was not holding anybody illegally. All those in custody, she asserted, were “under investigation” for suspected ‘crimes’.

Such ‘suspects’ include the renowned religious specialist Ihor Kozlovsky, who was taken prisoner by DNR militants on January 26, and remains in custody....................

U.S. sets requirements on Russia for Donbas elections

Post by Admin on Fri May 20, 2016 8:17 am

Concorde analyst Zenon Zawada: “When Nuland is referring to the elections being in conformity with the Minsk accords, she is referring to a whole list of conditions, the main ones being the disarmament of native fighters, the removal of Russian military personnel and returning control of the border to the Ukrainian government. The same day, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said another precondition for elections is the release and exchange of all hostages and illegally detained individuals.

“So far, the prospects of these conditions being fulfilled are not promising, or less than 50 percent. Getting the Russians to surrender control of the border and release all hostages would be difficult enough, yet there are also complications related to the Kremlin getting the Donbas terrorists to adhere to all its commands. The terrorists have demonstrated a willingness to thwart Moscow’s will, which can be dangerous.

“What’s also revealing about Nuland’s comments is widening rift between the European Union and the U.S. in their positions on resolving the war in Donbas. The Americans are far more willing to keep sanctions in place and place stringent demands on the Russians than the Europeans are willing to do. U.S. diplomacy must consider that it will gradually lose the support of the Europeans in pressuring Russia the longer this conflict drags on. Although the conventional wisdom in the West has been that the Russians are eager to remove the sanctions, their actions continue to reveal a firm commitment to resist Western pressure.”..............

ukrainebusiness.com.ua

Europeans would rather sacrifice parts of Ukraine for their own selfish greed. Same scenario as in the past enacted by Chamberlain. They'd rather continue to have a battered Ukraine as a buffer, than protect it from further aggression. If Putin's allowed to have ANY part of Ukraine, where will he stop? Then it'll go back to how this all started again with perhaps Poland, Latvia or Lithuania to be next. Then whom after that?

European leaders are no better than Putin is, in my opinion. They're all selfish crooks. And Europeans just sit back and allow it to happen. That is why I believe Ukraine shouldn't even consider being an EU member. All it would have a chance to do is continue kissing the EU's ass as the rest of their members do. Ukraine can become a very strong and prosperous country to where they can tell the EU where to go, if their demands and numbers aren't met, when having to do with products and produce Ukraine can offer them. Let Europe pay for what they want from Ukraine, not have Ukraine pay for its independence from the Kremlin.

It's UAH 6879 which is around $ 274.

Do these cretins really believe gas should be sold to the population and industry at COST price? How will wages, taxes, repairs, renovations and investment be paid for unless Tymoshenko, Akhmetov and so on wish to donate their ill-gotten fortunes to the State and Naftogaz.
