Pressure builds on Trump’s national security adviser. Financial Times

FBI probes whether Michael Flynn discussed US sanctions with Russian ambassador

Michael Flynn, Donald Trump’s national security adviser, is facing mounting pressure over claims he may have broken the law by discussing US sanctions against Russia with a Russian official before the US president’s inauguration.

The White House has been forced on to the back foot after the former general went from denying discussing sanctions with the Russian ambassador to Washington to saying he could not recall if they addressed the issue in conversations.

The Washington Post reported last week that US officials were concerned that Mr Flynn might have been signalling to the Kremlin that the Trump administration would adopt a softer stance on Russia than the Obama administration. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is probing the matter to determine what exactly the two men discussed.

Some White House officials are angry that Mr Flynn may have misled vice-president Mike Pence, who vouched for him when the claims first emerged. The conversations with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador, occurred at the time the Obama administration hit Moscow with sanctions over alleged Russian cyber attacks on the Democratic National Committee and the head of the Clinton campaign during the presidential campaign.

Pressed by reporters on Friday as he flew to Florida on Air Force One with Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe, Mr Trump said he had no knowledge of the issue, but would “look into” the reports.

Two days later, Stephen Miller, an influential White House policy adviser, was conspicuous in not defending Mr Flynn when he was dispatched to advocate for the administration on the influential Sunday morning political talk television shows. Mr Miller dodged the question, saying the matter was “sensitive”, which is typically not the kind of language White House uses when it wants to defend an official under attack....................

"His work -. It is the recruitment of fighters for the PMC, the so-called private military companies and much points to the fact that in recent days he was very successful in the formation of private armies he is looking for men who are ready for the money to protect Russian interests in 2017 in the new. . battlefields Ivanov said that tankers "snapped" In addition, we need doctors, engineers and competent communicators are also looking for helicopter pilots -.... they are out of the competition All other applicants must first pass the tests and provide the necessary documents Most importantly, it is the same the most difficult conditions - is the presence of the passport and the lack of credit and criminal record "- said in the article.

in whether the real name Ilya Ivanov recruiter can not be sure for certain. However, two other sources who tried to get the soldiers in the PMC, confirmed ZEIT ONLINE, which also dealt with Ivanov. In addition, Ilya described in detail the way and the area near the landfill, where trains PMCs. Value for describing reality later confirmed by its own source of ZEIT ONLINE. Automotive column at the landfill in Molkino. The only soldiers, which was able to talk, said that they "are going to exercise." According to Ivanov, the PMC soldiers training base located near Molkino farm in the Krasnodar region. Until Ukrainian Donetsk, about 500 kilometers from here, to the Russian resort of Sochi - about 250 kilometers. In 2015, at the site in Molkino passed modernization, on which more than 50 mln. Rubles were spent . Officially in Molkino deployed three military divisions : 1st Guards missile brigade (in / h 31853), 10th separate brigade of special purpose the Ministry of Defense of the GRU (in / h 51532), as well as the 243rd Training Ground (in / h 55485) . "One of the former employees of the Russian PMCs Moran Security Group later founded his own PMC, which is called" Wagner Group "We are talking about Dmitri Utkin -.. He's Wagner Utkin served in the special forces of the GRU, after the dismissal of working under contract with the Moran Security Group, guarded court hazardous areas from pirate attacks. after his discharge in autumn 2013 as part of about 250 "contractors" was in Syria. Six months after the Syrian trip created the so-called "Group of Wagner", which participated in the fighting in the east of Ukraine and later in Syria . The December 2016 Utkin appears even at a reception on the occasion of the Fatherland heroes Day in the Kremlin. Among the invited heroes of the Soviet Union and Russia, Utkin was one of the few guests who have high achievements did not have such .

adopted in PMC soldiers sign a contract for at least six months, said Ivanov. However, he said that the contract fairly conventional, "two pages". Do not tell "is written on the first page", "on the second page," read what is written on the first page, "- laughing Ilya.

Recruitment and training ground in Molkino raise questions for any combat missions looking for Russian mercenaries How does co-operate military units that.? stationed in Molkino with PMC Wagner? and why do was to change the law "on military duty and military service"? The press service of the Russian Ministry of defense did not respond to ZEIT ONLINE request. The explanation for the legalization of mercenary activities could be seen in the specific connections of external and internal . policy of the Russian president

"Ever since Vladimir Putin came to power, he supported it through wars. First, Second Chechen War, in 2008 - the war with Georgia, Ukraine and then from 2015 - participation in the war in Syria. All military action, no matter whether they are started on the initiative of Russian or not, Putin used for domestic rating ... When a country is involved in war, the problems such as corruption is no longer seem so significant. All this could also play an important role, if abroad there will be new conflicts with the participation of Russia ", - the authors note.

" However, not all so simple. The first problem is related to the people. Now Putin's difficult to find enough people for a full warfare, said Stefan Meister, a Russia expert at the German Council on Foreign Relations. According to him, Russia is currently involved in two conflicts in Syria and Ukraine, which requires a lot of soldiers and weapons. Even if we consider that in 2008 the troops were modernized, their resources are not limitless. Meister believes it is likely that in 2017 Russia will join the new military conflicts - in addition to the existing ones. First of all, from the perspective of Donald Trump unleashed by the struggle against international terrorism a new mercenary brigade can help in this process, he said. With mercenaries conclude another contract than conscripts, as they will hire private military companies. According to Meister, so it will be easier to prevent getting the public to access this information. Very often the problem arose in Ukraine, when the government had to explain why among the "volunteers" killed turned out to be the Russian military. If the die PMC soldier, the Defense Ministry could easily challenge their involvement ", - stated in the material.

in during the conversation with the recruiter Ivanov journalists found out that the next possible place for fights, which will fight Russian PMCs will be Afghanistan.

"Apart from Syria, Ukraine and unstable regions like Libya, Russia could in 2017 to intervene in the conflict in Afghanistan. But the negative image that is linked in Russian society, with losses in Afghanistan, sits deep. As Meister says, that image is comparable to the" Vietnamese injury. "USA Today, even with the support of the propaganda machine will not be able to persuade the Russian population to take part in a ground operation in Afghanistan." Today in Afghanistan there are only technicians and instructors are required, in particular for the Russian helicopter support, "- Meister says. for example, in January 2016 signed an intergovernmental agreement on the provision of Afghanistan military-technical assistance . "If the NATO in 2017 withdraw its troops from Afghanistan, then Russia can really embrace the fear of the fact that terrorism will spread across the country. "Taliban" can greatly destabilize the Central Asian neighbors of the Russian Federation, and this is a real threat, including for Russia ", - says Meister Most contenders in the PMC do not care where they are sent to fight Most importantly -.. Money Ivanov said. pricing in PMC following today: 50 thousand rubles (700 euros - Ed.) in preparation on the basis of from 80 to 120 thousand (1150 euro - Ed.) "output", besides Prize by Russian standards, it is. big money "Tank burned -. denyuzhku received. I got it? What a firing point scored, got more money if the commander confirmed "- explains Ivanov," - said in the investigation of the German edition. , In Ukrainian / на українській мові
