Putin unlikely to launch new offensive in Ukraine – Mikheil Saakashvili

Putin unlikely to launch new offensive in Ukraine – Mikheil Saakashvili

The head of Odesa state administration, ex-Georgia Pres. Mikheil Saakashvili, says Russian President Putin is unlikely to risk a new intervention in Ukraine soon, Saakashvili told Radio Svoboda Aug. 22.

“I think, Putin is bluffing flexing his muscle in Crimea. He won’t dare to attack,” Saakashvili said.

“However, Ukrainians must be very cautious not to give Putin any excuse to stage new provocations. Ukrai

ne must continue its mobilization to show it is ready to repulse any attack.

Second, we must inform the world about the possible threats.

Third, we must go ahead with reforms, the only way to keep Russia at bay. The aim of the reform must be the replacement of the old political clan,” Saakashvili said.

Kremlin mafia openly proposing West umbrella against ISIS terrorism

Post by Admin on Tue Aug 23, 2016 9:28 am

Kremlin mafia openly proposing West umbrella against ISIS terrorism

Putin opted for blowing up apartment buildings in Moscow to come to power. Putin sent Tsarnayev brothers to America to persuade Trump to cooperate with Kremlin, says Russia-based expert Andrei Piontkovsky, “I” reports Aug. 22.

Putin is one step short of a geopolitical victory, and he won’t miss a chance to win the 3rd World War on a foreign turf with minimum casualties, he says.

There is a growing amount of evidence pointing to Kremlin’s strategic cooperation with ISIS and the use of ISIS as a steamroller to weaken and ruin the West, Piontkovsky says.

Thousands of Russians and former Soviet citizens have joined ISIS, he says.

Russia is blackmailing the West following every ISIS attack on Europe, demanding the lift of sanctions and cooperation with Putin – or the attacks will continue. Putin is offering the West an umbrella against ISIS terrorism – on his own terms, Piontkovsky says.

Officers of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) in conjunction with the Military Prosecutor's Office have caught one of the deputy heads of the State Fiscal Service Directorate in the Mykolaiv region receiving a large-scale bribe.
Censor.NET reports citing the statement by the SBU press-center.

"The law enforcers established that the official was systematically extorting and receiving money from a local businessman through an intermediary. The entrepreneur was paying a "tribute" for unobstructed business operations and abandonment of criminal proceedings initiated into tax evasion. The Security Service members detained the intermediary receiving the third part of a bribe in the amount of 250,000 hryvnia (about $9,600) in downtown Mykolaiv. The total amount of graft received by the senior official was nearly 700,000 hryvnia (almost $27,000)," the law enforcement agency informed.

Later, Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko unveiled the official's name. Turns out it was First Deputy Head of the Main Directorate of the State Fiscal Service in the Mykolaiv region Roman Pidhorodynskyi.

"Military Prosecutor's Office in conjunction with the SBU has nabbed First Deputy Head of the Main Directorate of the State Fiscal Service in the Mykolaiv region Pidhorodynskyi, who received 700,000 hryvnia in bribe for protection racketeering and ceased criminal proceedings. We are drafting documents for his arrest," he said.

The searches are being performed at the office and home of the civil servant as well as at his mediator's place of residence. The criminal proceedings into this offence have been initiated under part 4 of the article 368 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

The investigative activities into this case are underway.
