Donbas security situation gravely serious, cease-fire violated daily, - Stoltenberg

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Monday that the Minsk agreements are being constantly violated in the Donbas.

Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.

The security situation in the east of Ukraine remains gravely serious, Stoltenberg is quoted as saying. The cease-fire is violated daily, sometimes for hundreds times, the secretary-general told the news conference in Brussels, adding that the heavy weapons have not yet been withdrawn.

As long as Ukraine faces the aggression on the part of Russia, NATO will continue providing political and practical assistance to Ukraine, he said.

The U.S. House of Representatives has approved the defense budget for 2017, stipulating, among other, for military aid to Ukraine allocated from the total amount of $618.7 billion.

Euro drops to 20-month low as Renzi concedes referendum defeat

Euro drops to 20-month low as Renzi concedes referendum defeat

The euro fell to the weakest level since March 2015 as Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi said he would resign after conceding defeat in the nation's constitutional referendum, according to Bloomberg.

The single currency dropped against all its 16 major counterparts as the referendum on Renzi's plans to rein in the power of the Senate was defeated by 60% to 40%, with almost all the vote counted. The euro pared losses following the premier's speech, while the yen erased an earlier advance against the dollar, Bloomberg reported. The euro dropped 1.1% to $1.0548 as of 13:36 in Tokyo after falling as much as 1.5% to $1.0506, the lowest since March 16, 2015.......

In political move, Russian patriarch blesses Putin-backed Paris church

In political move, Russian patriarch blesses Putin-backed Paris church

The patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church consecrated a new cathedral only steps from the Eiffel Tower on Sunday. It is the culmination of a controversial project viewed by some as part of President Vladimir Putin's efforts to spread his country's influence into Europe.

Patriarch Kirill, an ally of Putin, blessed the Saint Trinity Church, located on the Left Bank of the Seine River, with members of France's large Russian Orthodox community present.

The church boasts an 8-ton gold dome encircled by four smaller gold domes - all part of a 100 million euro ($106 million) Russian cultural, educational and religious center financed by the Kremlin.

The project has been supported by Putin, who has combined a potent mix of Russian nationalism and Orthodoxy to help cement his conservative social agenda and rule..........

“Pro-Russian” Dodon wants to pull lid on TransNistria, banish Russia from Moldova

“Pro-Russian” Dodon wants to pull lid on TransNistria, banish Russia from Moldova

The recent presidential election in Moldova was won by Ihor Dodon, described by Moscow as ‘pro-Russian.’ The Russian media rejoiced as vehemently about it as it did on the election of Donald Trump. However, new circumstances have come to the surface in Moldova, Regnum.ru reports Dec. 5.

Moscow’s blue-eyed boy a month ago, Pres Dodon is now viewed by the Russian media and spin doctors with disappointment.

The first disappointment came when Dodon said he would not turn back Moldova’s European integration course.

Next, Dodon called his allegedly ‘pro-Russian’ stance a cliché imposed on him by his opponents. He stressed he would insist on Moldova’s neutrality which entails demilitarization and the pullout of the Russian troops from TransNistria.

The biggest eye-opener came when the media analyzed Dodon’s earlier statements made in 2013 on settling the territorial conflict in Moldova. It turned out that Dodon had long proposed getting rid of the Russian troops in TransNistria and give the breakaway republic the autonomy status within Moldova.

All this means the Kremlin had put its money on the wrong candidate when it backed up Dodon, the Russian media says.

I hope this has opened her eyes to show that the life she wanted to live in Russia was all false propaganda. Now she'll have to live with this, till she returns to her home country. That's IF she does.

Imagine how many more children and families are experiencing this in Russia that went there from Ukraine. Tough price to pay to see reality.
