Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin hold historic telephone call

Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin have spoken for the first time since the presidential inauguration.

The 50 minute telephone call on Saturday afternoon was seen as the first test of an embryonic reset of Russo-US relations that has previously been largely confined to mutually flattering public comments and a shared disdain for Mr Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama.



The phone call was welcomed by top Russian officials but watched anxiously by critics of Mr Putin in Washington and Europe, who fear Mr Trump may abandon key US commitments, including sanctions imposed after the annexation of Crimea, in a bid to improve relations with the Kremlin.

Mr Trump refused to rule out dropping sanctions at a press conference with Theresa May, the British prime minister on Friday.

"We'll see what happens. As far as the sanctions, very early to be talking about that," he said.

In a signal of a possible rift between Britain and the US on the issue, Mrs May said: "we believe sanctions should continue."................

Perhaps the "Fatherland" must continue to work in alliance with the "OPPOSITION" - "People's Front" Tymoshenko statement

Statement by the leader of the "Fatherland" Yulia Tymoshenko that this political force will no longer associate with anyone, indicating that it will continue to work with the "opposition".

As Tsenzor.NET about it said in a statement the party "People's Front".

"People's Front" statement of Yulia Tymoshenko considers that "Homeland" does not work with any political force, a statement of the obvious fact that today Tymoshenko alliance with the "opposition" will continue to work in tough soldering and does not expand its membership " - convinced party members.

"Public voting faction" Motherland "and" Opposition Block "in parliament registered independent monitoring services, show that Tymoshenko has finally made her dream of" Shirko "the Party of regions, and in ideal conditions, the absence of" Regions "Yanukovych, who could not stand the competition in the race for the title of best" friend of Putin "in Ukraine. As for direct relations and fruitful cooperation Tymoshenko and Viktor Medvedchuk, godfather of the Russian Fuhrer, walk true legend "- said in a statement.

"The fact that the "Fatherland" finally found a true ally, perhaps, is a personal success Tymoshenko but at the same time, we believe it is a serious challenge for Ukraine, which in its history has repeatedly lost freedom as a state because of an internal power struggle, relying on Russian money and support", - emphasized in the" Popular front."

"with regard to the fact that Yatsenyuk headed the united opposition after the elections Yanukovych Yatsenyuk that with the whole team kept the party "Motherland", preventing the monopolization of power by the then regime, it's true. Like the fact that one of the first decisions taken after the victory of the Revolution of dignity at the initiative of leaders of the current team, "Popular Front", was the release from prison of Yulia Tymoshenko in Kharkiv. However, following the appointment of Arseniy Yatsenyuk Prime Minister Tymoshenko characteristic - greedy and uncontrolled desire of the authorities - led her to the camp of the forces who are not Ukrainian, and Tymoshenko took systematic destructive work against the country, "- noted the party members.

Tymoshenko's reputation has finally been accepted. A power hungry obsession that continued, after her incarceration. She'll never change. Ukrainians are finally realizing what she's all about. As reported earlier, she now has under 226 MPs in the RADA (Parliament). Her powers are quickly depleting.

I've known of her since the mid 2000's, when Yushchenko became president, after fraud in the election caused one of the first major protests called my "Maidan". She was known as the gas queen. He goal is to get the highest power level in Ukraine and to become the next Yanukovych. Ukrainians MUST stop her, or they'll be back to square one, and Putin will have open doors to further his influence.

Although the work of cleaning house in Ukraine has been a rough ride, it has made major gains. The work's not over and it can't be TOTALLY turned around in a 360 degrees by one person. It has to be done by the entire country. The Putin influence is still so heavy, that there will continue to be destabilization in both sides. Don't think that there hasn't been gains. Don't think there hasn't been success. And most of all, don't think that Ukrainians can't make a difference. Unarmed, they forced Yanukovych out. They should be proud of that.

Trump says he is only in early stages of considering lifting Russia sanctions

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he is only in the early stages of considering whether to lift U.S. sanctions on Russia, as British Prime Minister Theresa May, other foreign officials and U.S. lawmakers cautioned that such a move would be premature, according to Reuters.

"As far as the sanctions, [it is] very early to be talking about that," Trump said, while insisting that he wanted to follow through on his campaign pledge to pursue better relations with Russia, Reuters reported. With Trump expected to speak by phone on Saturday with Russian President Vladimir Putin for the first time since taking power a week ago, speculation has been rife that he is close to lifting sanctions imposed by then-President Barack Obama over Moscow's annexation of Ukraine's Crimea Peninsula in 2014.

Such a move would likely cause consternation among European allies as well as many in the U.S. Congress who are also troubled by Russia's intervention in the Syrian civil war and by U.S. intelligence agencies' finding that Moscow meddled in the U.S. election campaign. His caution on the Russian sanctions came in response to a question at a joint news conference at the White House with May, the first foreign leader to visit the president since his inauguration..............
