Nato chief Jens Stoltenberg rebuffs Trump on warning to alliance

Blunt call for alliance unity as Republican presidential candidate’s remarks alarm European allies

Nato’s top civilian issued a sharp rebuttal to Donald Trump on Thursday after the Republican presidential nominee suggested the US might not defend European allies if they came under Russian attack.

The unusually blunt plea for alliance unity by Jens Stoltenberg, Nato’s secretary-general, came as Mr Trump’s remarks were greeted with alarm on Nato’s eastern flank, particularly in the three Baltic countries and Poland.

Mr Trump’s suggestion that the US should only defend European Nato members if Washington was “reasonably reimbursed” for the “tremendous cost” of protecting them came in an interview with the New York Times. When he was asked whether he would defend the Baltics in the face of Russian aggression as president, he said: “If they fulfil their obligations to us, the answer is yes.”...................

BBC Sports: Rio Olympics 2016: Russia athlete ban upheld by Court of Arbitration for Sport

The Court of Arbitration for Sport says the IAAF has the right to exclude all Russian track and field athletes if it chooses to do so.

From BBC Sports:

A decision to ban Russian track and field athletes from Rio 2016 over the country's alleged state-sponsored doping regime has been upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Russia's athletics federation was suspended by the sport's world governing body, the IAAF, after an independent report found evidence of widespread doping.

The Russian Olympic Committee and 68 athletes appealed against that decision but after hearing evidence from both sides, CAS has ruled the ban can stand.
Trump admits US may abandon Baltics in case of Russian aggression

After becoming the official Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump went even further in his controversial statements.

This time, he has stated that the U.S. might not come to the defense of a NATO ally under attack from Russia if that country has not fulfilled its obligations to America.

Censor.NET reports citing Financial Times.

After his nomination as the Republican presidential candidate, Trump went much further than his previous controversial comments that he would consider reducing the U.S. role in a military alliance that has formed the bedrock of the transatlantic security relationship for many decades.

Asked whether he would defend the Baltic states in the face of Russian aggression if president, Trump said: "If they fulfill their obligations to us, the answer is yes."

The billionaire had already sparked concern among many U.S. allies, including the other members of NATO and countries such as Japan and South Korea, that he would adopt an isolationist stance that would dramatically affect a series of relationships that most experts argue have provided for security in Europe and Asia.

In response to Trump's remarks, Linas Linkevicius, Lithuania's foreign minister, said: "There is no ground to doubt Lithuania's commitments, and we do not doubt [our] Allies' commitments."

An ambassador for a NATO country in the Baltics said: "A lot of people here are very queasy at the prospect of Trump's presidency and how it could empower Putin."

The publication recalls that U.S. President Barack Obama offered reassurance in a speech in Tallinn in 2014 that the U.S. would respect NATO's commitment to collective defense, known as Article 5, if the Baltics were attacked.

But Baltic officials express concern about allies promptly triggering Article 5 that will allow Russia to go far before it is retaliated.

Earlier, Trump excluded the provision of lethal aid to Ukraine from GOP's official program. Trump staffers came up with a proposal to replace the corresponding item with softer language calling for "appropriate assistance." The amendment was voted on and passed. This unexpected move turned out to be at odds with almost all party national security leaders.

On the contrary, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has repeatedly condemned Russia's invasion of Ukraine and criticized Trump for his sympathy toward Moscow. During her campaign, she stressed the Kremlin would rejoice at Trump's victory.

As reported, Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton have more or less equal chances to win the U.S. presidential election scheduled for Nov. 8, 2016. Each of them is supported by 40 percent of Americans. In Russian/русский

Who Killed Sheremet? Ukraine's Security Services Announce Theories on Murder

Pavel Sheremet, a renowned investigative journalist, was killed by a car bomb while he was driving to work at Radio Vesti on Wednesday morning in central Kiev. The journalist’s funeral in his hometown of Minsk, Belarus, is set for July 23, and investigators are compiling theories surrounding his death.

His death has already been classified as “premeditated murder” by Kiev police, and the FBI and Europol have agreed to aid in the probe. Ukraine’s security services (SBU) announced four of their six main theories surrounding his murder on Thursday.

Professional Work

The theory that Sheremet was targeted because of his journalistic work was one of the first announced in Kiev on Wednesday. The journalist’s uncompromising investigations led to his imprisonment in Belarus in 1997, and to his persecution and firing in Russia. Friends of Sheremet and his partner and colleague, Ukrainskaya Pravda editor Olena Prytula, told The Moscow Times on Wednesday that both had long complained about being followed. Sevgil Musayeva-Borovyk, head editor of Ukrainskaya Pravda’s news site, linked Sheremet’s death to his work as well, especially given the timing of the incident: during his routine morning commute. The New York Times once described Sheremet as “a thorn in the side of President Alexander Lukashenko’s autocratic government,” because of his investigations into the country’s corruption and political abuse................

Various theories - professional work, Russian connections, and so on.
Pavel Sheremet: “You can’t be ready to be killed”
The above words, spoken about Pavel Sheremet’s friend Boris Nemtsov on the first anniversary of his murder are bitterly poignant, as is so much else on a dark day, when the well-known and respected 44-year-old Belarusian journalist and former prisoner of conscience has himself been murdered. He died in Kyiv almost exactly two years after leaving Russian ORT in protest at the virulent warmongering propaganda against Ukraine. ....

Ukraine gradually boosts gas imports from Slovakia to 18.2 mln cubic meters on Thursday

Looks to me like Ukraine will buy gas again from Europe rather than direct from Russia.
Putin was wanting Ukraine to pay for gas for the occupied territories as a condition for buying Russian gas. Idiot.
Ukraine's gas consumption has decreased markedly over the past two years.
But everything depends on the winter. The last two have been very very mild. Last year, of course, was an El Nino year.

Oil price is steady - remember the gas price is linked to this.

The Many Faces Of Nadia Savchenko
....What might eventually prove to be her political undoing is her alliance with Tymoshenko. Savchenko's snubbing of Tymoshenko at the airport, where she refused to take the bouquet of flowers, may well prove to be emblematic of their relationship -- and a harbinger of what's to come. Berezovets said there just isn't enough room for two strong female personalities at the top of the party. "Yulia is a strong, charismatic leader who will not accept her alter ego," he said, referring to Savchenko....

Russia builds up three major groups capable of blitzkrieg toward Kyiv, - Russian military expert
"...At the border with Ukraine (where three years ago no troops were deployed at all), the Russian side is building up three major groups that can, if necessary, deal a swift strike in the direction of Kyiv (which is only 270 km away from the Russian border) from the north as well as create two powerful "claws" to ensure a strategic encirclement of the main Ukrainian army group in Left-bank Ukraine, which is already constrained by the self-proclaimed republics at the front line in the Donbas. ...

Basically, if Putin wanted to occupy all of Ukraine, he could do so.
My opinion - his main problem would be afterwards. The Ukrainian people hate Russians. Absolute hate.

Putin wants to convince everyone that the world is a rotten, like Russia

The reaction of Russian authorities to the doping scandal around the Russian athletes suggests that the Kremlin uses for its whitening the same methods, which tries to maintain power to Vladimir Putin.

This page in the Financial Times writes Peter Pomerantcev transmits

He recalled that after WADA has revealed the involvement of Russian state structures to conceal the truth about the use of Russian athletes of doping during the Olympic Games in Sochi, the chairman of the Duma Committee on Sport, said: "Probably, for all this are the United States."

Putin himself has accused anti-doping investigation in WADA "politicized." And the Russian media wrote that the scandal was "part of the policy of sanctions against Russia."

"The first method requires to convince the Russians that Putin -. Also uncontested leader of the USSR at the time argued that it is much better than the Western world today Kremlin says that the whole world is the same rotten, like Russia." - Says the Pomeranian.

The author notes that in the case of a doping scandal at the Russian television there are numerous videos on how throughout the history of the problem of illegal drugs in the United States there were athletes.

"Similarly, the Kremlin acts when he is accused of propaganda or corruption, saying that West is also not the best," - says the article.
The second method of Moscow - is to convince the Russians to the existence of a "conspiracy" against their country. And this, according to the author, allows emotionally justify all the Kremlin's failure and the entire Russian society. Furthermore, it deprives the people feel that they are able to affect something in Russia.

"What can one little man against the big conspiracy? This justifies the illegal actions of the Kremlin. Like, the Russian authorities had no other choice but to use a secret army and lie to occupy the Ukrainian Crimea. Also, it was" necessary "to feed the athletes banned substances to confront "international conspiracy" - the article says.

He concluded Pomeranian - "Putin has positioned himself as a person who acts in a similar manner with the international law in the Russian system of ordinary people too often have to break the rules in order to survive to circumvent the law in the country is considered a good ability..."
