US election: Trump’s Russian riddle (Financial Times)

Post by Admin on Sun Aug 14, 2016 4:03 pm

US election: Trump’s Russian riddle (Financial Times)

The Republican nominee became the face of Bayrock, a developer with roots in the Soviet Union

During the first decade of this century, Donald Trump began doing business with an unlikely partner — Bayrock, a New York property developer founded only a few years before by a Soviet-born newcomer to the US named Tevfik Arif.

The Republican presidential nominee and Bayrock were both based in Trump Tower and they joined forces to pursue deals around the world — from New York, Florida, Arizona and Colorado in the US to Turkey, Poland, Russia and Ukraine. Their best-known collaboration — Trump SoHo, a 46-storey hotel-condominium completed in 2010 — was featured in Mr Trump’s NBC television show The Apprentice.

Yet when Mr Trump testified under oath in 2011 about his relationship with Mr Arif’s company, he confessed that he found his partners puzzling. Mr Trump said he knew what they did. But he said he was unsure of exactly who they were.

“I don’t know who owns Bayrock,” Mr Trump said. “I never really understood who owned Bayrock. I know they’re a developer that’s done quite a bit of work. But I don’t know how they have their ownership broken down.”................

The conservative German politicians called for the provision of weapons Ukraine

The conservative German politicians called for the provision of weapons Ukraine

And politicians from other parties of the government coalition - the Social Democratic Party and the Green Party of Germany - were in favor of preserving the sanctions of the European Union

A number of German politicians from the ranks of the ruling conservative party "Christian Democratic Union" acted for providing lethal arms Ukraine, told the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung. And politicians from other parties of the government coalition - the Social Democratic Party and the Green Party of Germany - were in favor of preserving the sanctions of the European Union, informs edition.

This newspaper reminds that German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier (Social Democrat - Ed.) In recent months supported the gradual lifting of sanctions from Russia.

In particular, the representative of CDU MEP Michael galero called for Ukraine to provide greater intelligence capabilities and defensive weapons, saying that it was a legitimate defense, Ukraine urgently required to avert the likely new Russian offensive.

His colleague in the party Elmar Brok, chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the European Parliament also called for Ukraine to provide better equipment. According to him, Ukraine supply of defensive weapons must take place to the extent that Russia did not use it to disrupt the Minsk agreements. The politician added that due to the violations established OSCE, in any case we can not speak about the more weakening or abolition of sanctions against Russia.

On the other hand, a member of the defense committee of the German Bundestag, the representative of the Social Democrats Felґentroy Fritz spoke critically of Ukraine providing weapons, the newspaper said. In his view, this has little meaning for cause "arms race" in which Ukraine still lag behind and do not lead to a significant change in the overall situation, but will increase the number of victims.

But instead, he said, the EU should not exclude the possibility of further sanctions against Russia to strengthen and develop concrete proposals in this regard.

The representative of the Green Party is Rebecca Harms stressed that EU governments should finally stop laying on the government of Ukraine and separatists equal responsibility for the escalation of military tensions. "This is intolerable and equating weakens reformers in Ukraine", - she said.

According to the Sunday edition of Frankfurter Allgemeine, it analyzed the daily reports of the Special monitoring mission of the OSCE in Ukraine since mid-April to late July and noticed that, despite the much more frequent restrictions on the work of the mission of the separatists, observers noted the occupied territories much more prohibited weapons, than the territory controlled Kyiv, and as militants carried out attacks much more than the Ukrainian army.

However, the newspaper writes, the rating situation in the east of Ukraine of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany is significantly different from the estimate newspapers: they claim that there is no clear evidence of a much larger number of violations of any party and that granting Ukraine of weapons, even defensive, not part of the approach the Minister to resolve the conflict in Ukraine.

Recently, US Ambassador to Ukraine Jeffrey Pyatt stated that failure by President Barack Obama to provide Ukraine with lethal weapons caused the desire to avoid a split on this issue with European partners.
