The United States is required to investigate the Kremlin's involvement in protests in the US against shale gas

on Mon Jul 24, 2017 8:41 am
The United States is required to investigate the Kremlin's involvement in protests in the US against shale gas



Members of the House of Representatives in the US Congress are demanding to investigate whether Russia is financing a campaign against environmental degradation by the United States of America for shale gas exploration.

As informs Tsensor.NET with reference to Gordon , writes Politico .

In late June, the chairman of the Committee on Science House of Representatives Lamar Smith, Republican Congressman Randy Weber asked the head of US Treasury Stephen Mnuchin investigate whether the Kremlin financed "green" campaign against hydraulic fracturing technology that has helped the US to overtake Russia in gas production.

The reports sent by republican lawmakers in a letter to Mnuchin say: "Russia is also behind radical allegations and rigorous criticism of the US fossil fuel sector."

Legislators, as an argument, quote the speech of the US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's Democratic Party, in which she claims to have been confronted with "false environmental groups" opposed to gas pipelines and hydro breakdowns. In a speech published by WikiLeaks after hacking attacks in the year 2016 on servers of the Democratic Party, it is said that Clinton himself was "a great protector of ecology," but "funding by Russians" was discovered. At the same time it is not clear from the text whether Clinton meant environmental groups in the United States or in Europe.

Also read: Russia is one of the threats we face - Head of the US Army Chiefs of Staff Dunford

Active protests in the United States against hydro-breakdown began in the late 2000s. Most of the protests were initiated by local activists in new places of gas production, such as Pennsylvania. Residents have complained that technology poses a threat to the quality of drinking water

The groups of environmental advocates in the US reject allegations that Russians sponsor protests and argue that the investigation initiative is intended to distract the public from the links between President Donald Trump and Russia.

The Ministry of Energy, the US Treasury and the White House did not answer the Politico question.

Recall, earlier the US began to supply liquefied gas to Europe. The first tanker with US LNG moved to the EU in 2016. In June 2017, a tanker with liquefied gas from the United States first arrived in Poland for the first time in Poland.

Analysts at The Wall Street Journal said that the supply of American liquefied gas to Europe could lead to a price war on the continent, which would result in lower prices for consumers.

President of Poland promises to veto two of the three laws on judicial reform

President of Poland promises to veto two of the three laws on judicial reform

Polish President Andrzej Duda states that he will veto two of the three bills reforming the country's judicial system.

He announced this on Monday, July 24, reports Reuters.

"I decided that I would send back to the Sejm, that is, I would veto a bill on the Supreme Court, as well as the one concerning the National Council of Judiciary," Duda said.

Recall that on July 22, the Senate of Poland supported the law on the Supreme Court despite criticism of the EU and protests.

This bill envisages the release of all current judges of the Supreme Court and the appointment by the Minister of Justice of executors of duties in their place.

Subsequently, the National Judicial Council should approve a new composition of the Supreme Court, which will be proposed by the Ministry of Justice. Also, the head of the ministry will have the right to appoint the heads of the appellate and district courts independently, without consulting the representatives of the justice system.

Earlier, the Polish parliament passed another controversial bill envisaging the reform of the National Judicial Council.

This judicial reform, which is being tried by the ruling nationalist party "Justice and Justice" in Poland, has caused sharp criticism on the part of the EU.

In Brussels, it is believed that it will put an end to the independence of the judiciary.

The European Commission threatened Warsaw with disciplinary measures in case of judicial reform. Instead, the party argues that reform will increase the efficiency of the work of the courts.

"Russia has changed the security situation, we have to respond to this," - Chief of the US Land Forces in Europe Hodges

The United States, NATO and allies must respond to the fact that Russia has changed the European security policy.

According to Cenzor.NET , referring to Interfax-Ukraine , Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges, commander of the US Land Force in Europe, said in an interview with the Swedish edition of Dagens Nyheter.

"Russia has changed the security situation (in Europe - ed.) We have to react to this, and not only the US, but all NATO," he said.

"The countries that are closest to the" bear "have a historical experience, they feel the bear's breath, and they are the ones who worry about it the most," added the US military commander.

"The fact that Sweden has decided that it needs to re-place troops on the island of Gotland is a very vivid indicator of what is happening," Hodges said.

In September, large-scale military exercises "Aurora-17" will be held in Sweden, according to an official statement by Swedish troops, to "deter potential attackers and force them to carefully weigh the risks arising from the attack." Aurora-17 will become the largest series of military exercises in Sweden over the past 20 years.
