UK committed to support Ukraine's sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity, - UK Defense Secretary Fallon

UK committed to support Ukraine's sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity, - UK Defense Secretary Fallon

The United Kingdom will provide military aid to Ukraine and continue supporting the country.

This was announced by UK Defense Secretary Michael Fallon in Kyiv on Friday, Censor.NET reports citing The Telegraph.

Britain will stand alongside Ukraine in its confrontation with Russia because freedom cannot be "traded", the defense secretary has said, amid fears Donald Trump may scale back support to Kyiv in a deal with Moscow.

Sir Michael Fallon announced new British military training to Ukrainian forces battling Russian-backed separatists and said a Royal Navy warship will visit the country for the first time in a decade.

He arrived in Kyiv for two days of talks as the U.S. election of Mr. Trump has caused alarm among Ukrainians dismayed at his apparent warmth towards Vladimir Putin.

In comments likely to be seen as a message to Mr Trump, Sir Michael said: "The values of freedom and democracy cannot be traded."

"Britain is stepping up on the global stage and standing firm with our Ukrainian friends.

"The UK is sending a clear message that we are committed to defending democracy across the world and support Ukraine's sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity."

The remarks follow comments from Mr Trump that he will propose an end to sanctions imposed after the annexation of Crimea.

Roshen halts work of its confectionery factory in Lipetsk, Russia

Roshen halts work of its confectionery factory in Lipetsk, Russia

Complete shutdown is scheduled for April 2017.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Roshen's press service, the decision was made for economic and political reasons.

"Full production stop and temporary closing of industrial and infrastructure facilities are planned for April 2017," the message notes.

As previously reported, the seizure of property of the Lipetsk confectionery factory by Russia's Investigative Committee as part of a criminal case made it impossible to sell the factory.

"Starting from 2013, the output at the Lipetsk confectionery factory has decreased threeforld. This happened due to a sharp decline in the production range after an unjustified ban by the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare (Rospotrebnadzor) in 2013 on imports of Roshen's Ukrainian products to the Russian Federation as well as a campaign to discredit the work of the factory in the Russian and Ukrainian media and the pressure put by local authorities in some regions on traders selling the factory products and decrease in the overall level of purchasing power of population," Kateryna Makedonska, the chief of Roshen's PR and Communications Department, said.

The decline in production led to constant mass layoffs.

The remaining staff (about 700 people) have already been informed about the upcoming halt. A relevant notification will be filed in the Lipetsk center of employment in the near future.

Dzhemilev assesses chances to regain Crimea by force

Dzhemilev assesses chances to regain Crimea by force

The Ukrainian president's envoy to the Crimean Tatar people and Crimean Tatar leader, Ukrainian MP Mustafa Dzhemilev says that Russian-occupied Crimea is impossible to return to Ukraine merely through the improvement of living standards in the country.

"When they say, let's make life better in the country, and Crimea residents will show their willingness to return to Ukraine, it is absurd!" he said, the Novoe Vremya weekly reported. Explaining his position, Dzhemilev noted that the Russian regime had never considered a public opinion. "Remember Chechnya, where part of the people was killed, some were forced to emigrate, and where only pro-Putin Chechens have stayed. Let me remind you that under the Criminal Code of Russia, any conversations about the need to hold a referendum on determining the status of any part of the Russian territory are falling under Article 280, which provides for up to five years in prison for encroachment on the territorial integrity of Russia," Dzhemilev said.

He also expressed the opinion that Ukraine would not be able to return Crimea by military means...................

Soros calls Trump 'would-be dictator'

Soros calls Trump 'would-be dictator'

Donald Trump is a “would-be dictator” who is “going to fail.”

Billionaire investor George Soros told the Davos world economic forum, Censor.NET reports citing The Guardian.

On the eve of Trump's inauguration as president, Soros delivered a scathing assessment, saying the "impostor and con-man" was "gearing up for a trade war" which would have "a very far-reaching effect in Europe and other parts of the world".

The "would-be-dictator … didn't expect to win, he was surprised", Soros told an audience of business leaders and journalists in Davos where the World Economic Forum is being held.

"I personally have confidence that he's going to fail … because his ideas that guide him are inherently self-contradictory," added Soros, who was a supporter of Trump's Democratic rival Hillary Clinton during the 2016 US presidential election campaign.

Soros said he expected financial markets to "not do very well" because of the uncertainty generated by the Trump administration.

CNN reports what would happen if Trump assassinated during inauguration

CNN reports what would happen if Trump assassinated during inauguration

On January 18 broadcast of CNN’s The Situation Room, the host contemplated a scenario of the Barack Obama administration keeping power if President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence were "wiped out on day one."

"What if an incoming president and his immediate successors were wiped out on day one?" the CNN host said. It was noted by a CNN correspondent that a House Speaker should take over, according to the Constitution. "According to the Constitution, if the president and vice president are killed or incapacitated next in line is the House speaker, then – the president pro-temporary of the Senate," the correspondent said. But in case anything happens to them at the inauguration, too, it all goes down the list of Cabinet secretaries starting with Secretary of State.

"On the day of inauguration, as a precaution, a Cabinet Secretary called ‘the designated presidential successor’ will not attend the inauguration, ready to step in if something happens," the report reads........
