Ukraine detains Russian soldiers on Crimea border

Russia claims the two men were abducted from the contested peninsula

Ukraine says it has detained two Russian soldiers near the contested peninsula of Crimea, the latest in a series of tense cross-border incidents.

Kiev’s State Security Service said late on Monday that the two men were former Ukrainian servicemen who “betrayed their oath and went to serve in the Russian army” after Moscow annexed the peninsula in 2014, according to Interfax. Ukraine claimed it had detained the men after they crossed into Ukrainian territory near the town of Chongar and would prosecute them for treason and desertion.

Russia’s defence ministry identified the men as Maxim Odintsov and Alexander Baranov, and claimed Ukraine had abducted them from Crimea. The ministry said their detention was “yet another crude provocation” and claimed the men were likely to undergo physical and psychological torture to extract false confessions from them..............

John Kirby, spokesman for the US State Department, said that the deployment of the missiles was "destabilising to European security". He added: "We call on Russia to refrain from words or deeds that are inconsistent with the goal of promoting security and stability."..............

Sweden to locate Cold War missiles on its Gotland island

Sweden to locate Cold War missiles on its Gotland island

Faced with aggressive behavior on part of Russia, Sweden is redeploying its mothballed Cold War missile launchers out of storage in museums to shore up the defenses on its Baltic Sea front line.

Censor.NET reports citing The Times.

The traditionally neutral nation, not a member of NATO, is sending the land-based Kustrobotbatteri 90 to its former stronghold on the island of Gotland, the newspaper reports.

The Scania launcher lorries, built in 1987, were developed for the Saab Robotsystem 15 (RBS-15) anti-ship missile system but only one of four planned batteries was delivered before Sweden's coastal artillery was taken out of service in 2000.

"We analysed whether we would be able to put something back together again which was capable of launching with," Rear Admiral Thomas Engevall told Sweden's Dagens Nyheter newspaper, quoted by The Local SE.

"A number of the trucks still remained. We have have taken components from existing missile boats and warships which had the same missile system," Engevall added.

Mike Winnerstig, security policy analyst at the Swedish Defence Research Agency, said that the decision showed that Sweden was stepping up its defense capabilities.

"This decision is national, but it is also a contribution by Sweden to the international defense capability in the Baltic Sea after Russia's annexation of Crimea and the invasion of Ukraine," he said. "If you group together these kinds of systems on Gotland, you can control quite a lot of territory in the mid-Baltic."

"I do not think Sweden is a primary goal for Russia," he added. "But we would still be involved in any conflict in the Baltic Sea area related to EU countries."

Sweden defense minister Peter Hultqvist on Friday visited the test site on Sweden's east coast where the reconstituted system is being put through its paces.

"It is extremely good that we have land-based coastal missile systems back in our National Defence," he said. "It means that we can shoot anti-ship missiles from land over great distance. They provides increased flexibility and capability in marine warfare. It increases military capability and that's something we need."

Trump Foundation tax return shows money given improperly. Largest donation from Victor Pinchuk (#Ukrainian businessman)

Trump Foundation tax return shows money given improperly. Largest donation from Victor Pinchuk (#Ukrainian businessman)

The Trump Foundation admitted violating IRS rules by improperly giving money to someone close to the organization, according to a recent federal income tax filing.

The filing, which was first reported by the Washington Post, was published on the website GuideStar, and raises more questions about potential IRS violations.

In one instance, the Foundation checked a "yes" box when asked: "(Did the Foundation) transfer any income or assets to a disqualified person (or make any of either available for the benefit or use of a disqualified person)?"
A Senior Research Fellow at GuideStar, Chuck McLean, told CNN that "disqualified person" is essentially "IRS speak" for a person who "has significant influence over the activities of the organization or someone related to those people."

Trump overseas business interests subject to new scrutiny

GuideStar is a nonprofit information service that specializes in reporting on American nonprofit organizations. It has offices in Washington and Williamsburg, Virginia, that collect thousands of nonprofit tax returns annually and post them on its website.

The Trump Foundation also checked "yes" when asked if it had engaged in any acts of "self-dealing" in prior years.
McLean told CNN in an email that by checking that box, those actions had not been corrected.

There's no indication on the 990 filing about precisely who the "disqualified person" was or even what activities are involved. The Trump Foundation, GuideStar says, has to file a form called a 4720 and then explain what took place and possibly pay an excise tax on them.

There were some other interesting items of note in the recent foundation document. In its section devoted to contributions, the largest single donor was the Trump Corporation to the tune of $566,370.

The largest individual donation, though, came from a Ukrainian businessman who previously had donated more than $6 million to the Clinton Foundation over the years: Victor Pinchuk, who through his own foundation based in London, gave the Trump Foundation $150,000.

Pinchuk's total net worth has been valued by Forbes Magazine at just around $1.4 billion. According to emails reported by WikiLeaks, Pinchuk also hired a lobbyist to arrange meetings at the State Department while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. Some Republicans had called for a special prosecutor to look into both the donations by Pinchuk to the Clinton Foundation and to the reported hiring of the lobbyist................
