Osprey tiltrotors of US Marines arrived in Ukraine for Sea Breeze 2017. PHOTOS

Osprey tiltrotors of US Marines arrived in Ukraine for Sea Breeze 2017. PHOTOS

On July 11, two rare aircraft of the U.S. Marine Corps, Bell V-22 Osprey, landed in Odesa for fuel top-up.

Censor.NET reports citing Dumskaia.

Bell V-22 Osprey is a tiltrotor that combines the advantages of both airplanes and helicopters. The Ospreys in Odesa were heading to a military base in the Mykolaiv region for participation in Sea Breeze 2017 international military drills.

These tiltrotors serve the U.S. Marine Corps and are used for airborne landing, including on a sea shore. This is the only volume-produced aircraft of this type in the world.




The aircraft is equipped with two Rolls-Royce T406 engines located at the ends of the wing in gondolas that can rotate by almost 98 degrees. The propellers with three trapezoidal fans are connected to each other by a synchronizing shaft that runs inside the wing. This shaft also enables the aircraft to land on a single engine.



To reduce the weight of the aircraft, about 70 percent (5,700 kg) of it is made of composite materials with epoxide carbon and fiberglass, which makes it by 25 percent lighter than its metal-made analog.

Bill on Russia sanctions introduced in US Congress

on Thu Jul 13, 2017 9:56 am
Bill on Russia sanctions introduced in US Congress



U.S. House of Representatives Democrats introduced a new draft of the Russia and Iran sanctions bill on July 12, hoping to send a message to President Donald Trump to maintain a strong line against the Kremlin.

Censor.NET reports citing Reuters.

Seeking to force Republican House leaders to allow a vote, Democrats on the House Foreign Affairs Committee introduced legislation unchanged from what passed the Senate by 98-2 on June 15 but has been stalled ever since.

While the new bill is identical to what the Senate passed, it will be labeled as House legislation to avoid a procedural issue that prompted House Republican leaders to send the measure back to the Senate.

However, there was no sign of support from Trump's fellow Republicans, who control majorities in both the House and the Senate and control what legislation comes up for a vote.

AshLee Strong, a spokeswoman for Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan, dismissed the Democrats' action as "grandstanding."

The measure was introduced by House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Representatives Steny Hoyer, the No. 2 House Democrat, and Eliot Engel, the ranking Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Democrats have accused House Republicans of stalling the sanctions package because of Trump administration concern about provisions setting up a process for Congress to approve any effort by the president to ease sanctions on Russia.

Trump's attempts to mend relations with Russia have been hindered by allegations that Moscow interfered in the 2016 U.S. election and colluded with Trump's campaign. Russia denies meddling and Trump says there was no collusion.

The issue has become even more heated since emails released Tuesday showed that Donald Trump Jr, the president's eldest son, eagerly agreed last year to meet a woman he was told was a Russian government lawyer who might have damaging information about Hillary Clinton, the Democratic rival in the 2016 presidential election.

Lawmakers and aides said news of that meeting, and the failure to disclose it, added new urgency to the push to pass the Russia package.

The new bill introduced on Wednesday would eliminate that change to allow House Democrats, as well as Republicans, to force a vote on a resolution of disapproval of any effort to ease Russia sanctions.
