West expects Putin's "suicide": Russia does pay Trump

Russian society that is pumped anti-Western doping, very tired of it

Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov after talks with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the American leader Donald Trump said that the meeting between the presidents of Russia and the US take place. Allegedly, it was agreed that Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump will meet on July 7-8 summit of G-20 in Hamburg. What steps Russia expects the West and why they are equal to suicide chapter of the Kremlin, "apostrophe" said Russian journalist and writer Leonid Radzikhovsky.

Relations between the US and Russia formally exist. No no no declared war, diplomatic relations are not torn. The question is. When Trump chose was much talk of "grand bargain" between Russia and America. How, then, and now it is unclear which agreement in question. After the deal - a commodity-money. Goods that Russia would like to receive from America - a lifting of sanctions, especially financial. Russia also need to put pressure on States stopped in Europe, forcing them to continue their sanctions. In addition, there are the personal sanctions, which are quite painful for many senior Russian officials and businessmen. But that money Russia for this product can pay?

All this euphoria, delight of Trump psychologically were clear, but the Russian elite, no matter how badorylasya, incredibly tired of the confrontation with the West. As included in this confrontation drunk in haze and hops is passed, no prospects here, to break the deadlock there. Elite tired and wanted to lifting sanctions. Hence the euphoria about Trump. But besides drinking champagne and talking about what Trump - good West offer Russia anything.

On the Ukrainian direction no change Russia also can not offer. About Crimea conversation there, no one ever returns. In Donbass Russia has done everything it could: the conflict frozen. Neither of which execution Minsk II language from the start it was, they were full tuftoyu. But it does not suit the West would suit a ceremony and demonstration of retreat. Similarly, when 90 Russian troops were derived from Europe during thunder bands. But this Putin can not go, because it is suicide. It remains the second direction - Syria. In endless conversations that fight together with IDILom together to fight terrorism - nothing real there. All of titanic struggle in Syria for nearly two years has been reduced to what she asserted Board Bashar Assad, but it is no use to anyone either in Europe or in America. With IDILom more or less successfully fighting the Americans. What it is, Russia can help? Well, to be more active Russian planes bomb IDIL but military-technically nothing. A small supplement.

Army in Syria, Putin never send. It is impossible, as that it will give the Crimea. It will be a blast. In Russia, people skazytsya all this be taken as Afghanistan. Possible, of course, would be a psychological trick piarivskyy. It would seem very impressive, as previously Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin, so now Putin Trump and any European leader with great fanfare, with arms proclaiming "Hitler coalition" Union signed some agreements on joint struggle against IDIL. Unfortunately, this move is also impossible because Putin did everything to make it demonized in the West no less than Stalin in his time. But Stalin was vital to the West, and Putin does not need them.

Therefore, actual relations between the US and Russia in terms of lifting sanctions, expanding financial contacts, technology, and that is very important for Russia - the removal of tension, confrontation regime change will not. There are many reasons to preserve this state of affairs. Trump always hangs in the balance. Constantly ongoing conversations of suspicious ties with Russia. Any step in the direction of Russia is seen through a magnifying glass and, in trouble, do not bring Trump, and the benefits for him in this single.

Trump - a futile effort by Russian intervention in US elections, returning boomerang. From his election as Russia is not received. It is very suspicious that these contacts and connections. Why was it so fiercely vysolopyvshy tongue shout: Long live Le Pen? It was clear that it fails in the election. Why could adjust themselves to the new president of France? Incredible stupidity. If Russia is waved, the elected president of France Emmanuel macron be treated much more tolerant to it.

But it's not Trump or Le Pen and that Russia still does the West has to offer. Russia needs financial injections West - Russian companies need cheap loans. The Russian elite is keen to have a relationship and ties with the West. Russian society as a whole that is pumped doping anti-western, tired of it all. At least that should be the same sine wave. If this was the rise of drunken courage, it must be the recession. For Putin, if he will be elected in 2018, would certainly show remarkable progress: that we have retained all their gains, vital Crimea, Donbass retained vital, while reconciled with the West. The event was well understood and realized our innocence - historical, psychological, political. A subtext of this means that the event on his knees and belly should prypovzty to. But this will not be the same: the West is not required, but Russia. , Original in Ukrainian / на українській мові

Ukraine Police Scramble To Probe Fresh Claims In Journalist's Car-Bomb Killing

Ukrainian police investigating the car-bomb killing of a Belarus-born journalist are sifting through a new documentary film's claims about the unsolved case, including that a current or former Ukrainian security agent was present when the explosive was planted.

National police chief Serhiy Knyazev convened the Kyiv meeting on May 11, one day after the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and screened their documentary about the July 2016 death of Pavel Sheremet, titled Killing Pavel.

Filmed over the course of nine months, it tries to reconstruct the hours before the bombing through exclusive footage and interviews.

One of the most intriguing assertions is that an agent or former agent of the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU), identified as Ihor Ustymenko, was at the scene when two unidentified individuals fixed the explosive to the red Subaru the night before the blast killed the 44-year-old reporter with news website Ukrayinska Pravda in downtown Kyiv early on July 20.

The filmmakers found Ustymenko with the help of a researcher from the open-source investigative group Bellingcat who managed to identify the license plate of the gray Skoda car he was driving that night. In a bizarre interview, Ustymenko admitted being at the scene but denied knowing anything about the murder or seeing the bombers walk right past him. He claimed he had been hired as private security to protect someone's children who were in the area.

Ukraine Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said on May 11 that authorities would interview OCCRP journalists and Ustymenko in light of the new information.

Sheremet's killing was the highest-profile slaying of a journalist since that of Ukrayinska Pravda's Heorhiy Gongadze in 2000.

'Matter Of Honor'

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko called Sheremet's killing "a matter of honor to take all measures to solve this crime as soon as possible." He said Ukraine would spare no resource and called for a transparent investigation by police and the security services. Experts from the FBI were even brought in to examine the remnants of the explosive device, which investigators believe had been packed with 400 to 600 grams of TNT and remotely detonated.

But 10 months on, the investigation has stalled. There has not been a single arrest, nor have any suspects been named. However, investigators believe Sheremet was murdered because of his professional activities.

The most significant evidence presented by Ukrainian investigators was security-camera footage released during a February 8 press conference. It appears to show a man and woman approaching the victim's Subaru on the street the night before the blast. The woman can be seen kneeling beside the parked car on the driver's side for around 30 seconds....................

Russia seeks to frustrate Ukraine’s efforts to integrate into Western institutions, - Director of US National Intelligence

Moscow sees hampering Ukraine's attempts to become part of the European community as one of its strategic goals for 2017.
