The expert explained why Putin's words that with Ukraine in the CIS can not be ignored, insignificant

utin's words bezpravnist Ukraine in the CIS untrue, said Danilchenko

"When the draft statute was prepared, it was found that most of the sections of the Charter of the CIS Ukraine contradicts the reservation to the Agreement establishing the CIS. So we signed can not be. Held over 20 rounds of meetings during which it was found that if Ukraine will sign this document, I now say roughly, the clause will be a sign, in addition to sections 3, 4, 5, 7, 8. The question, and then sign? It was therefore decided that the signature on our part will not"- he said.

Danilchenko said that "once upon a time" there was a question: what are the rights and obligations of the state with different status within the Commonwealth? "Economic Court of the CIS is not on our initiative considered the question.

Ukraine is a member of hazing. In this regard the CIS Economic Court concluded that we accepted unconditionally, that hazing Ukraine's membership in the CIS does not diminish, not restricts its rights and initiatives. So Putin's speech at the summit do not correspond to reality,"- said the representative of Ukraine to the CIS in 2000-2004. In Ukrainian/український

Aircraft carrier, which Russia sent to Syria, capable only scare - expert

The combat effectiveness "Admiral Kuznetsov" modest

Expert naval forces of the world and maritime strategy Yyurh Kyurzener believes that the combat effectiveness of the Russian aircraft carrier "Admiral Kuznetsov" that Russia sent to Syria are quite modest. It is rather sending propaganda purposes. This expert said in an interview with Swiss newspaper Neue Zuercher Zeitung.

"Although the" Admiral Kuznetsov "aircraft carrier is called, he deserves this definition only conditionally - said the expert. - First, it does not catapult, just jump, called Sky Jump. Thus, the aircraft can take off from it, but not with a full combat load. Due to their limited firepower. " According to him, "Admiral Kuznetsov" - this old ship (commissioned in 1991) with disabilities. Previously, it was called "Brezhnev", "Tbilisi" and "Riga".

Regarding the number of aircraft on board, there is a "different data", he added. "Someone says 50 aircraft and helicopters. But this figure is too high, - said Kyurzener. - Much more plausible I issued the following figures: 12 combat aircraft and 12 attack helicopters. Among the aircraft may be eight Su-33 and two MiG-29 and two Su-25 and helicopters - different versions of the Ka-27 and Ka-52. However, aircraft radar reconnaissance on board there, as well as any aircraft for aerial refueling. As a result of limited radius of the aircraft."

"The fact that along with the aircraft carrier in the fleet tug is also something said about the state of the so-called carrier. Especially after the return from the Mediterranean he again go to a shipyard for repairs,"- said the source publication.

Participating aircraft carrier in the Syrian war will be crucial, says Kyurzener. "Its combat capabilities are limited, and the effect is expected to more political since Russia again wants to be seen as an important player, including at sea. Perhaps, with this flotilla Russians are going to declare war returning to the Mediterranean Sea, in a certain way to mark their presence. This - a propaganda event ", - says the expert.

As reported, the Russian aircraft carrier "Admiral Kuznetsov" has 10 days is in the sea and goes to the Syrian port of Tartus. This Wednesday Russian fleet had to go to the Spanish Ceuta, opposite Gibraltar for refueling. Previously, it was common for Russian warships - from 2011 they refueled there at least 60 times. But this time there was a diplomatic scandal: some NATO countries demanded that Spain did not fill the Russian ships. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the Russian military group in Syria can be used for bombing civilians in Aleppo. Thus each country, he added, can itself decide who to allow refueling. In Ukrainian/український
