If Ukraine goes ahead with its plan to hold training missile launches near the border with Crimea, Russia will shoot down the missiles and hit the launching pads, Russia’s defense ministry told Ukraine’s military attaché in Moscow, DT reports, citing sources in Ukraine’s defense ministry.

He stressed the launches of missiles are in compliance with Ukraine’s international obligations and will be held in Ukraine’s sovereign air space.

Ukrainian Armed Forces to conduct exercises regardless of Russia’s "missile" threats, Defense Ministry spokesperson says

Post by Admin on Wed Nov 30, 2016 10:21 am

Ukrainian Armed Forces to conduct exercises regardless of Russia’s "missile" threats, Defense Ministry spokesperson says

Speaker of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine on the anti-terrorist operation (ATO) matters Andrii Lysenko says no one has the right to threaten Ukraine while the Armed Forces are committed to conduct scheduled exercises on its territory.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Ukrinform, he said commenting on the reports on Russia's threats to retaliate Ukraine's missile-firing test near the administrative border with occupied Crimea.

"We are going to carry out all firing tests and exercises on Ukraine's sovereign territory and no one will tell us what to do here," Lysenko said.

The speaker stresses that Ukraine is a state governed by the rule of law which holds all its military exercises according to schedule. Ukraine fulfills all its obligations under the international treaties to provide early exercise warnings according to the international standards while all scheduled activities will definitely be held.

"As for the threats, they cannot thwart plans of the Ukrainian Armed Forces to conduct exercises on the sovereign territory of Ukraine," Lysenko said.

Earlier, on Nov. 25, the Defense Ministry of the Russian Federation presented Ukraine's Defense Attaché in Moscow a diplomatic note in connection with Ukraine's plans to hold missile-firing exercise near occupied Crimea.

Russia's Federal Air Transport Agency said Nov. 29 that Ukraine had allegedly established new danger zones for flights over the neutral waters of the Black Sea and partly over the Black Sea territorial waters to the southwest and southeast of the occupied Crimean Peninsula.

Will Russia Occupy Belarus In 2017?

Post by Admin on Wed Nov 30, 2016 10:52 am

Will Russia Occupy Belarus In 2017?

Recently, the Russian Ministry of Defence disclosed logistical data of railway traffic to other countries for the upcoming year.

It revealed that the Kremlin is planning to significantly increase the amount of military cargo headed for Belarus.

This may be a sign that Moscow is preparing to redeploy a large number of Russian troops to Belarus in 2017.

A piece by Belarus Digest predicted that the Kremlin is trying to transform Belarus into a flash point for menacing NATO and Ukraine by deploying its military capabilities on Belarusian territory.

Unfortunately, this prediction is corroborated by the aforementioned logistic data, as well as the fruitlessness of the recent meeting between Alexander Lukashenko and Vladimir Putin in Moscow....................

How will Donald Trump court the oligarchs of eastern Europe?

Post by Admin on Wed Nov 30, 2016 12:51 pm

How will Donald Trump court the oligarchs of eastern Europe?

Ordinary people have lost trust and US wheeler-dealing could push them towards Russia

Since Donald Trump won the US election, there has been anxiety over what the tycoon’s victory means for eastern Europe. Will Ukraine be the big loser as the new American president tries to cut a deal with Vladimir Putin over Syria? Can we expect a fresh round of Russian-inspired hybrid war in eastern Ukraine or even more Russian military incursions elsewhere in the region?

A new military scenario looks unlikely, if only because Mr Putin is desperate to see western sanctions on his country lifted. But the concern masks a more urgent problem. Even before Mr Trump won the White House, much of eastern Europe was already living in Trumpland, where business and politics are fused and politics is more about making deals than building institutions.

The sight of a billionaire businessman capturing power is familiar to the people of Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia. Each is run, formally or informally, by a wealthy tycoon. The godfather of Georgian Dream, Georgia’s ruling party, former prime minister Bidzina Ivanishvili, is estimated to be worth about $5bn, more than one-third of his country’s gross domestic product. Moldova’s richest man, Vladimir Plahotniuc, is also its de facto leader, while Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko is one of the wealthiest men in his country.

For years, tiny Moldova was known as eastern Europe’s “champion of reform”. It was granted visa-free travel and an association agreement with the EU before any of its neighbours. Yet on November 13 Moldova apparently rejected Europe by electing Igor Dodon a pro-Russian socialist to the post of president, a position with limited constitutional powers but symbolic importance....................

However, Russia, which occupied Crimea, adamantly against it. 26 November Defense Ministry sent a corresponding letter to the Defense Ministry of Ukraine, threatening that if the exercise zbyvatyme Ukrainian missile and attack the Ukrainian rocket launchers. Official Kyiv expressed concern similar reaction. They say that Ukraine has in its territory, all announced its intention to conduct training. Thus in Kiev do not exclude that the Russian statement can be materialized. "Given the actions of the Russian Federation over the years, from it you can expect a lot of bad and negative" - said Deputy Defense Minister of Ukraine Oleksandr Dubliany.

And, apparently, the Ukraine does not intend to abandon the exercise. Speaker of Defense for ATO Andrei Lysenko was even more categorical in statements. "We have a territory, and no one will tell us what to do" - he said. According to Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov, according to all international agreements, the sovereign airspace of Russia in the Black Sea ends in the middle of the Kerch Strait. Meanwhile troops of air defense in occupied Crimea switched to enhanced mode.
