In the US State Department told why the sanctions were effective against



Sanctions have kept the Russians from being able to do something even worse than they already have done - US State Department

In the US State Department believe that sanctions against Russia are effective, although not yet made the Kremlin leadership expected to go on concessions. First, sanctions kept the Russians from being able to do something even worse than they already have done. Secondly, sanctions have forced Russia to accept the Minsk agreement seriously. This was told the coordinator of the US State Department policy of sanctions Daniel Fried in an interview with Latvijas Avize .

However, the official acknowledged - yet the sanctions do not really pushed the Kremlin to the expected adoption of the decision. "Violence is increasing in Ukraine, people in the fighting killed every day. Despite the fact that the armistice, to improve the security environment is difficult. We must be patient, firm and resolute, "- he said.

"Latvia in this sense - an example of indestructibility and patience, because Latvia in the policy of sanctions was one of those who was in the forefront. As you know, Russia also imposed appropriate sanctions, and they attacked the Latvian economy. I hope that Latvian entrepreneurs reorient their export markets ", - he added.

Russia took up the development of a new generation of hyper-sonic weapons - Czech media

Post by Admin on Fri Sep 09, 2016 6:54 am

Russia took up the development of a new generation of hyper-sonic weapons - Czech media

Russia is working on two main ways to use hyper-sonic technology

Russia took the sixth generation fighter development, which includes both manned aircraft and drones. Speed ​​latter is likely to be hyper-sonic, that is at least five times greater than the speed of sound, says Czech edition ECHO24 .

"These news event took skeptical or even smile, but underestimate the capabilities of a field of hyper-sonic weapons would be extremely short-sighted," - says the publication.

Information about the sixth generation aircraft company published "Kret", which is primarily engaged in military electronics, so probably partially justified, there were opinions that it is nothing more than an attempt of the company to attract attention to the state budget it allocated financial grants. "The fact that the alleged Russian project hyper-sonic fighter is an absolute novelty, but we know that other super-fast weapons system developed in Russia for several years because these projects are a continuation of those that appeared during the Cold War" - said in the article.

In addition, we know that today Russia is working on two main ways to use hyper-sonic technology. The first development - new rotary devices for intercontinental missiles. Unlike conventional warheads to targets that move on ballistic trajectories or maneuvering, the new device, developed in the so-called project "4202", also has the option of performing combat and, apparently, has its own engine. Thus, it is more of hyper-sonic cruise missiles, which aim to deliver ballistic media.

"There has been several trials of this device, and it is estimated that around 2020 it will be adopted by the Russian missile forces. Sometimes there are reports that some original version is already in the arsenal. But of course all this wonderful material for propaganda, which never forgets to underline that such weapons could easily overcome any particularly American, missile defense "- the newspaper writes.

The second direction of development of hyper-sonic weapons in Russia - it's anti-ship cruise missiles and precision-class "air - surface". In Russia there are several types of supersonic anti-ship missiles, so the desire to create hyper-sonic vehicle in this category (it will be given the name 3M22 "Zircon") - a logical step. In the future hyper-sonic missiles will be equipped with various types of surface ships, submarines and bombers.

"Despite the difficulties, it is expected that within a decade hyper-sonic weapons are weapons begin to flow in most developed countries. And if in the medium term will begin a "traditional" (ie intergovernmental) armed conflict, it is likely that there this kind of weapons will play a very important role. The famous geopolitical analyst George Friedman even hyper-sonic weapon carries the three technologies that will decide the outcome of the war "- sums up edition.

Kremlin scenario: The Washington Post described as Russia provokes catastrophe in the elections in the US

Post by Admin on Fri Sep 09, 2016 7:04 am

Kremlin scenario: The Washington Post described as Russia provokes catastrophe in the elections in the US

Russia wants to spread America's confusion, chaos and undermine the credibility of the presidential office - the US media

US investigating possible Russian secret plan to disrupt the elections in November. "Those who are unfamiliar to such stories, the headline in The Washington Post this week, as I can imagine, it seemed strange. It sounds like a thriller or a film with Harrison Ford in the title role, "- writes columnist for The Washington Post Anne Applebaum.

"There is a scenario in which the investigation is already implemented in other countries," - says the author, and makes assumptions that could happen in the next two months.

1. Trump, who advise people with ties to Russia, will strengthen its repeated statements that "the elections rigged."

2. Russia will continue to distribute and publish materials are obtained by hackers during the attacks on the Democratic National Committee fund "Open Society" George Soros, former NATO Commander General Philip M. Breedlove, and possibly others, to not only discredit Hillary Clinton, but and the democratic process in the US, says Applebaum.

3. On election day or the day before Russian hackers try to break the system of voting in the US, the author writes. It refers to the estimated cases of hacking computer systems at polling stations in Illinois and Arizona.

4. Rosiyyany tried to overthrow election chaos. They may try to facilitate the election of Trump. Or - and this, of course, will be even more catastrophic - they might try to fudge the election on behalf of Clinton, says Applebaum.

5. As soon exposed, begin hysteria in the media, litigation, mass rallies, the constitutional crisis - which followed by confusion, chaos and undermine the credibility of the presidential office, said the article.

6. What likely not be evil, or even not taken, the journalist continued. But rumors of election fraud can cause the same hysteria as the real election fraud.

"Whatever happens, the political process would be undermined, public confidence will fall further and attractiveness of American democracy in the country and abroad will decrease. And this, of course, the whole point ", - concluded the journalist.

The Daily Vertical By Brian Whitmore: Putin's War On Facts

The Putin-model Kremlin handles somethings well – and others less well. As Brian Whitmore points out succinctly and correctly in this Daily Vertical, the Kremlin’s greatest problems come from its utter inability to deal with facts and truth. Of course, Putin & Co have the perfect vehicle to deal with those pesky people who choose to retail these scarce commodities; you are designated as controlled by a foreign source, thereby making you subject to a whole raft of burdensome regulations, thus assuring that your days as a purveyor of facts and truth are effectively over.

Statistics: Ukraine sees 0.3% deflation in August [Engl]

Post by Nelson on Fri Sep 09, 2016 7:48 am

Statistics: Ukraine sees 0.3% deflation in August
http://en.interfax.com.ua/news/economic/368871.html

....The service noted in August last year consumer prices fell by 0.8%, as a result in annual terms (compared to the same month last year) inflation in August accelerated to 8.4% compared to 7.9% in July and 6.9% in June.....

====

Food prices have been very stable during the past few months. And, of course, in August there is an abundance of produce from people's gardens for sale on the streets and small markets.
Prices have basically steadied. But, obviously, imported goods' prices are 100% in the hands of the exchange rate.
And during the past couple of weeks the hryvnia has fallen significantly against the dollar and euro.
It is now back - very close - to 30 to a euro.
If the Rada now stops gas and electric increases for a year a so, then inflation will fall to near zero.
But that depends upon the real gas price.

....Millions of viewers watched Ukrainian singer Jamala win the 2016 contest, held in Stockholm last May.

Commentary: Any Vote Is A Vote For Putinism [engl]

Commentary: Any Vote Is A Vote For Putinism
http://www.rferl.org/content/commentary-russia-kasparov-any-vote-is-vote-for-putinsim/27977059.html

....t must be recognized that the Putin regime has nearly completed the transformation from a so-called hybrid regime to full-fledged totalitarianism. I know this statement might be received skeptically, since the term "totalitarianism" is normally associated with mass repressions. However, in practice, the distinguishing characteristic of a totalitarian regime is the intention of the authorities to control both the actions and the thoughts of their citizens.

In order to see that totalitarianism is already a harsh reality in Russia, all you have to do is look at the statistics on the criminal prosecutions for "thought crimes," such as posting or "liking" things on social media. Or consider the intensity of the brainwashing being done by the propaganda machine.

Using elections as a means of political struggle in a totalitarian regime is -- by definition -- impossible.....

Medvedchuk said, who actually against European integration of Ukraine

Medvedchuk said, who actually against European integration of Ukraine

Medvedchuk believes that Ukraine in the EU do not want to see not only the European politicians, but also of many countries

No prospects of European integration in Ukraine not because our country does not want to see the EU not only European politicians, but the population of many European countries. This is the opinion leader of the "Ukrainian choice - right people," Viktor Medvedchuk.

The reason for such a policy reaction was the statement of Prime Minister Groisman the immutability of Ukraine's European choice.

"Very clearly expressed known friend and" lawyer "Ukraine in the EU, former Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski, concerning the prospect of membership in NATO, Ukraine should not this even dream of, and as for joining the EU, it is at least not a question short term ", - said Medvedchuk.

He added that solidarity with Kwasniewski and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, Foreign Ministry spokesman Martin Schaefer of Germany and other European policies.

"Kyiv to do a lot more before thinking of joining the European Union. And beginning to lift the economy. But the problem is that after euromaidan economy is experiencing a severe crisis. When in 2013 Ukraine's GDP was $ 183.3 million, in 2015 - just $ 90.6 million. With the per capita GDP Ukraine has become the poorest country in Europe and even behind many African countries. Go into the EU with such baggage is simply impossible, "- said Medvedchuk.

But the saddest thing, in his opinion, that see Ukraine in the EU do not want to not only European politicians - and acts against the population in many European countries.

"... Even in 2014, the year on a wave of euphoria and seemed to support Ukraine, it does not like to see in the EU. According to opinion polls published in the French Le Figaro, Ukraine's membership in the EU rejected 71% of French citizens and 62% of Germany. 64% of French citizens did not want to be helped country was on the verge of bankruptcy Ukraine. The figure in Germany - 57%, "- said.

He noted that in Ukraine, according to sociologists, the rapidly growing number of opponents of EU membership.

"The number of supporters of Ukraine's accession to the EU this year decreased by 8.3%. In 2015 more positively to join the EU were 56.3% of respondents, more negative - 24.4%, undecided 19%. If this trend continues, the number of Eurosceptics soon exceed the number of supporters of EU membership ", - predicts head of the" Ukrainian choice ".

The Kremlin is actively lobbying easing the EU sanctions against Russia

Klympush-Tsintsadze fears that the continuation of sanctions against Russia would be difficult



Continued economic sanctions against Russia is not an easy issue, because Moscow is actively lobbying in the European Union regarding the question of removal or weakening. In an interview with Ukrinform reported Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Klympush Joanna Tsintsadze.

"I fear that this decision (continued economic sanctions - Ed.) Will not be a simple matter. Russia actively working, so that the various political forces in different countries or lobbied opposed easing sanctions despite the fact that Russia is not fulfilling its obligations and that it continues to violate any principles of international law, that despite all these are obvious things, "- said Klympush-Tsintsadze.

She noticed that experts, politicians and journalists have to do one the front and "reasonably explain what is the essence of why sanctions were imposed and why it is important to continue."

Head of the Crimean Human Rights Group Olha Skrypnik during a Kyiv press conference has spoken of a systemic use of torture against Ukrainian citizens who are held as political prisoners by the Russian security forces, an UNIAN correspondent reports.

"Indeed, we were afraid that in this case [the case of the so-called Crimean "saboteurs "], torture could be applied because, unfortunately, it is a constant practice of the security forces in [the Russian-occupied] Crimea and in other cases of our Ukrainian political prisoners. If you remember the case of Oleh Sentsov, Hennady Afanasiev has told exactly what torture techniques were used against him," she said.

"We see almost the same methods if you remember the case of Oleksandr Kostenko and Andriy Kolomiets. They also named the same methods – duct tape, plastic bags over the face, electric shocks. That is, what we are seeing now is not the first time when the people who have become hostages of politically motivated cases reported almost the same kind of torture techniques. That is, we are now talking about a systemic practice, applied to the Ukrainians, who have essentially become the Kremlin’s hostages," said Skrypnik..................
