Lavrov hails thaw in US-Russia ties in face of political heat

Russian foreign minister says sides agree to work together to end killing in Syria

Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov applauded Donald Trump for his “businesslike” pursuit of improved relations following their first meeting on Wednesday — a day after the US president fired the FBI chief investigating whether Russia meddled in the elections to bring him to power.

Despite all known differences, our countries can and should contribute jointly to the settlement of the most urgent issues in international affairs,” he told journalists at the Russian embassy after meeting Mr Trump in the White House.

Mr Lavrov dismissed as “absurd” and “fake information” claims that Russia interfered in the US electoral process and blamed former President Barack Obama for introducing “irritants” into the relationship.

The public thaw followed the highest-level meeting between Mr Trump and the Russian government to date, and the first visit by Mr Lavrov to the US since Russia annexed Crimea and militarily intervened in Syria on the opposing side of the US.

Mr Trump said he had a “very, very good meeting” with Mr Lavrov and that both sides want to end “the killing — the horrible, horrible killing in Syria as soon as possible and everybody is working toward that end”.

Mr Lavrov said they agreed to “jointly implement” four de-escalation zones in Syria, including one along the southern reaches neighbouring Jordan and Israel, saying details will be worked out in peace talks due to recommence in Geneva and Astana.....................

Merkel and Putin


The Soviet Union was dangerous, but Putin is dangerous. He's trying to destroy democracy from within - Kasparov

Russian opposition leader Garry Kasparov believes that Russian President Putin set out to prevent the re-election of Chancellor Angela Merkel in the upcoming elections in Germany. He told German newspaper Bild .

"Putin wants at all costs to prevent the re-election of Merkel - said Kasparov. - Merkel - a key figure in the European Union, and Putin knows long will Merkel, sanctions will be saved. " He said that "Putin will do to weaken Merkel everything in his power."

"Putin will support any party, so that it was against the EU", - said Kasparov. However, he recalled that Putin has lost in France and the Netherlands - "perhaps playing in Germany." But to underestimate the Russian president, in his opinion, is not: "The Soviet Union was dangerous, but Putin is dangerous. He's trying to destroy democracy from within. "

On the domestic point of view, Putin, according to Kasparov, now weakened: "He has so much blood on his hands that he was standing with his back to the wall. And the only thing that it makes sense - it's saving power. " "It reduces all social benefits. All. The only thing he does not cut it costs for security, military and propaganda. This military budget ", - said the opposition.

"And while Putin will pay for their actions, he continues in the same spirit" - summed Kasparov.
