US will talk to Russia from position of strength

on Thu Jan 12, 2017 8:25 am
US will talk to Russia from position of strength

Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine John Herbst has no doubt that President-elect Donald Trump will reinforce the U.S. army, including with nuclear weapons, which will allow talking with China or Russia from a position of strength in the event of aggression.

He said it in an interview with Radio Svoboda, Censor.NET reports.

Herbst gave several comments on Trump's news conference that took place on Wednesday, Dec. 11.

It's good the president-elect recognizes Russia stands behind recent cyberattacks, he said, adding it was nice to hear from Trump that during his presidency Moscow will have much greater respect for the U.S.

According to him, both of these facts are positive for Ukraine.

Trump also said the United States is going to do 'some big things' on the F-35 and the F-18 programs.

Although Trump was not asked about Ukraine, the issue was raised before his candidate for the post of secretary of state Rex Tillerson during the first confirmation hearings in the Senate.

Commenting on Tillerson's speech, Herbst said he got the impression that the policy toward Russia is likely to be tough, adding it sounded like a good message to Ukraine.

What Vladimir Putin really wants from Donald Trump (Financial Times) 

on Thu Jan 12, 2017 8:28 am
What Vladimir Putin really wants from Donald Trump (Financial Times) 

The Kremlin craves a world in which national interests replace international rules

Cuddle up to the Kremlin and do not be surprised when you are burnt. There is no need to believe the lurid, unverified tales about Russian efforts to cultivate and compromise Donald Trump to recognise the danger in the president-elect’s infatuation with Vladimir Putin. Mr Trump is a wealthy property developer; the Russian president a former head of his country’s ruthless Federal Security Service, or FSB. This is not a balanced match-up.

Mr Putin has pocketed one significant victory even before Mr Trump reaches the White House. The next time US intelligence agencies flag up a security threat — another Russian incursion into Ukraine, say, or the subversion of elected governments in eastern Europe — the Kremlin has a riposte. If the occupant of the Oval Office has no faith in the CIA, the National Security Agency or the Federal Bureau of Investigation, why should anyone else believe them? Mr Trump broke all the rules of politics to win the White House, but a president at war with those charged with keeping America safe?

Intelligence agencies do not always get it right. The CIA will pay the price for its flawed judgments on Saddam Hussein’s weapons programmes for years to come. But the spooks could scarcely have been more confident in saying that the Kremlin hacked into Democratic party computers during the presidential election campaign.

Leading Republicans in Congress have taken the agencies at their word. Rex Tillerson, Mr Trump’s nominee for secretary of state, says it is a “fair assumption” that such cyber attacks could only have taken place with the authorisation of Mr Putin.

Mr Trump prefers to shoot the messenger: this week’s leak of allegations that Moscow had gathered personally compromising material was proof of the witch-hunt against him by America’s own agencies. When Mr Trump asks rhetorically whether he is living in Nazi Germany, the adjective that comes most readily to mind is “unhinged”................

Rex Tillerson refuses to blame Putin for murders of political opponents

on Thu Jan 12, 2017 8:34 am
Rex Tillerson refuses to blame Putin for murders of political opponents

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) asked Rex Tillerson point-blank whether Vladimir Putin was a war criminal — and Donald Trump’s pick for secretary of state blinked.

“I would not use that term,” said Tillerson, the longtime chief executive of Exxon Mobil who was awarded the Kremlin’s Order of Friendship in 2013 .

Rubio, who expressed “serious concerns” about Tillerson’s nomination last month, detailed alleged Russian war crimes in Syria and listed some of Putin’s political opponents who have been murdered.

“Do you believe that Vladimir Putin and his cronies are responsible for ordering the murder of countless dissidents?” Rubio asked.

Tillerson said he didn’t have enough information to make that claim, and Rubio asked if he was aware that Putin’s political opponents “wind up dead all over the world” — and he asked whether those slayings were simply coincidental.

“Well, people who speak up for freedom in regimes that are oppressive are often at threat, and these things happen to them,” Tillerson said. “In terms of assigning specific responsibilities, I would have to have more information.”

Tillerson said he would need classified information available to cabinet members before advising the president about the topics Rubio had brought up, including bombing campaigns in Aleppo and Chechnya.

“None of this is classified, Mr. Tillerson,” Rubio said. “These people are dead.”............

The destruction of the monument to Poles in Lviv. Russian provocation in Ukraine

on Thu Jan 12, 2017 11:37 am
The destruction of the monument to Poles in Lviv. Russian provocation in Ukraine



Zakharov was indignant, that Poland and Ukraine considered vandalism provocation of Russia

The destruction of monuments is unacceptable and contrary to morality. This was stated by spokesman of Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharov, commenting on the fact of the destruction of the monument to Poles in Lviv.

Zakharov said that such behavior is contrary to morality, "especially when some sound cues Ukrainian figures who called the destruction of the monument provocation aimed at aggravation of Polish-Ukrainian relations and favorable third party."

"It is clear that when a third party is always meant always one party" - added Zakharova.

Earlier, unknown vandals destroyed a monument to Poles murdered in 1944 in the village of Huta Pieniacka, located in what is now Lviv region. The opinion that the act of vandalism involved Kremlin previously expressed MP from the MFP friendship group co-chairman of the Poland-Ukraine  Oksana Yurynets, Consul General of Poland in Lviv  Wieslaw Mazur, MP, former leader of the "Right Sector"  Dmitry Yarosh.

This is a key example on how the Kremlin creates destabilization within countries. This has also been practiced within Poland itself, by pro-Russian groups. It's been known to happen within the last few years in nearby countries, like Estonia and other neighbors.

Some that aren't aware why Putin invaded Ukraine. The excuse used by him was, persecution for those speaking Russian. This is totally false, as I know for a fact that many throughout Ukraine speak Russian, along with Ukrainian and there's no persecution going on. Recall, they've been forced for decades to speak Russian. It's not something that can just be put to the side. Many in the younger sector didn't have the chance to speak Ukrainian first, before speaking in Russian.  These are just some of the tactics used by Putin throughout all the post-USSR countries. Other provocations recently is like a Christian cross being vandalized in the Uman district, which is the main Jewish in Ukraine. These incidences have been heard of, till recently. This is how Putin wants to cause a civil war within, then use it as an excuse to fully invade in order to save Ukraine.

How can these kinds of tactics play out in the US? It's already started. When's the last time we've seen so many headlines of racial acts throughout the country? Suddenly many reports of swastikas appearing. So be vigilant of some of these tactics used by Putin that will rear its ugly head within the US.

Donald Trump may agree to make concessions to the Kremlin on the Ukrainian question

on Thu Jan 12, 2017 8:43 pm
Donald Trump may agree to make concessions to the Kremlin on the Ukrainian question

Donald Trump may agree to make concessions to the Kremlin on the Ukrainian question , but the US official will not recognize the annexation of Crimea.

This opinion was expressed by Russian journalist and publicist Leonid Radzikhovsky in an interview ONLINE.UA .

According to him, Ukraine could become a "bargaining chip", but Russia and the United States is a problem, how to change. Radzikhovsky says that the Kremlin will not talk about the return of the Crimea, as he believes annexed the peninsula Russian territory. For, the problem remains of Donbass and Ukraine as a whole.

"For Trump's all too clear. If so the Russians seized in Ukraine, the Kremlin if it is just as important as the US Mexico - let them do what they want" - says Radzikhovsky. At the same time, he noted that the Kremlin has nothing to offer in return Washington.

"If Trump not to grant Ukraine the status of a neutral state, the suspension of talks on its accession to NATO and EU, Putin can offer Trump?" - Asks the journalist. He said the likelihood of the United States to Iran in exchange for Ukraine.

"Another problem - the US Congress. This is Russia - Putin, and the US - not Trump" - said Radzikhovsky. He recalled that the Congress in '50 did not recognize the Baltic States in the USSR, although it had no real consequences for policy.

"Congress will never recognize the annexation of Crimea", - says Radzikhovsky.

A similar situation in Russia and in Europe. In France, the president will change, but for German Chancellor Angela Merkel 's question is a matter of personal prestige.

"Is the European Parliament and the Council, where the situation will be difficult for Russia", - says the journalist, referring that there are Great Britain, which set anti-putin. In addition Radzikhovsky mentioned the disaster MH17 and that the Netherlands must publish the third part of its report, which will be called the names of Russian officers who shot down the plane.

Candidate Rex Tillerson for US secretaries of state suspected of insincerity towards Ukraine

on Thu Jan 12, 2017 8:50 pm
Candidate Rex Tillerson for US secretaries of state suspected of insincerity towards Ukraine

Rex Tillerson , which US President-elect Donald Trump has chosen to position US Secretary of State, was disingenuous, saying that he had nothing to do lobbying by ExxonMobil opposition to sanctions against Russia.

This is a comment "apostrophe" said Ukrainian lobbyist in the United States, the head of the Washington Center for East European perspectives Mykola Vorobyov.

"I think this cold calculation (Tillerson), not his real position, and it just says of him wanted to hear. Still, it was not true to the end, when asked whether Putin is a war criminal, he said, no, not so argue. When asked whether lobbying company ExxonMobil opposition to sanctions against Russia, he replied that it was not that he had nothing to do with it. But in fact, he could not know about the lobbying company manager which was "- said Vorobyov.

"That task was to say of him wanted to hear, and he did it very carefully. He said that sanctions directly affect American business, thereby giving the message of that because penalties for Americans is a direct result. Anyway, field maneuvers he himself left. In Crimea, I think, is to change something will be difficult, but admit it (Russia) will also be difficult. That is, and then America will not recognize Crimea Russia, but de facto it has to be the territory of Russia. I think they will continue to recognize the Crimea in Ukraine. at the same time doing nothing to get it back, "- said the expert.

Recall that in the late 90s Tillerson ExxonMobil was responsible for projects in Russia. In 2011, he signed with "Rosneft" agreement on drilling in the Arctic. When ExxonMobil was forced to suspend cooperation with "Rosneft" Tillerson spoke out against anti-Russian sanctions.
