After Le Pen's statement on Kremlin support, Svoboda broke off relations with the "National Front of France" - Tyahnybok

on Fri Jul 28, 2017 9:52 am
After Le Pen's statement on Kremlin support, Svoboda broke off relations with the "National Front of France" - Tyahnybok

After the statement of the leader of the National Front of France Marin Le Pen about the support of the Kremlin, Oleg Tyagnibok sent her a letter explaining the situation. However, there was no response from Le Pen.

This was the leader of "Freedom" said in an interview with Tsensor.NET.

"After Marin Le Pen was the party chairman, we did not even have any joint events and statements. When the annexation of the Crimea took place and appeared Marin Le Pen's first statement about supposedly supporting Moscow's position, I immediately wrote a letter of explanation to them, and I assured Ms. Le Pen that they were saying that you were wrong. And we painted in detail that it was Putin's aggression against Ukraine, "the politician said.

According to Tyahnybok, he did not receive the answer to this letter: " Instead of the answer, it was an even more aggressive statement in support of Russia. And then we stated that we are breaking our relationship with them and leaving EuroNat.

According to the leader of "Liberty", during cooperation with the National Front of France there were no signs of his ties with the Kremlin.

"We had very close cooperation with the National Front of France, and some twenty years ago, with Jean-Marie Le Pen, we even signed the relevant document," Tyahnybok said. "He came here to Ukraine, at our invitation, he was in Kiev, in Lviv, Participated in our congress, and I deny that at that time there were some signs of his cooperation with Russia.

Later, when Marin Le Pen led the party, we had a single meeting. Actually, this photograph was made immediately after As she became the leader of the party. At that time, "Freedom" was the only one of the post-Soviet countries political parties was an observer in this organization as "Yevronat." It was the organization that ' United by European nationalists. We could not be a valid member, because such a status could only be a party from a country that is part of the European Union.

I will frankly say that Marin Le Pen from the very beginning did not have such a warm relationship with her father. Moreover, there was even a certain scandal there when she excluded him from the party. We did not want to interfere in this scandal. But the influence of the team of Jean-Marie Le Pen, including Bruno Golnish (we contacted him more and more with him, and it was Marin Le Pen himself who won internal party elections, it was he who was the head of this "Euronat") then diminished."

Mother Kliha and Ageev appealed to Putin and Poroshenko to pardon their sons

Mother Kliha and Ageev appealed to Putin and Poroshenko to pardon their sons

A Ukrainian woman sentenced to death in Russia, Stanislav Klych, and a Russian mercenary detained under the Lugansk Viktor Agiev, appealed to the presidents of Russia and Ukraine to release their sons.

This is reported by Tsensor.NET with reference to the " New Newspaper".

A meeting of the mothers of Klich and Agaev was held in Kyiv.



"We are the mother of our children, Stanislav Klych and Ageev Victor. With great respect for our authorities, the Russian Federation and Ukraine, we ask you to release, pardon our children in captivity, and, like Stanislav, in a prison where He's been three years old ....

I want you, Volodymyr V. Putin, and our Ukrainian authorities, Petro Poroshenko, have solved this issue. It seems to me that you have the strength to do this - our children return home, have mercy on them and stop the war. The war we do not need is not a mother who came from Russia nor me. I really want that we lived peacefully, together and were one Slavic people. But not enemies, "said Klim's mother Tamara.

"It is a great grief for us, we do not describe in words what sorrow, I do not know if the men will understand the words of women." Vladimir Vladimirovich, you are a smart educated person, the head of state, I think we can help us ", Svitlana Ageeva added.

Recall, Agaev arrested Ukrainian servicemen in the Luhansk region. He is currently detained at a SIZO in Starobelsk.

In an interview with the Ukrainian TV channel, Ageev said that he is serving in Novocherkassk, in the communications regiment and the training center of Russia's Airborne Forces. He confirmed that in March 2017 he arrived in the Rostov region and signed a contract for service in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. According to him, he arrived in his part, stayed there for 4 days, signed a contract and literally immediately was sent to Donbas.

Recall that on May 19, 2016, a jury trial in Grozny (Russian Federation) found guilty citizens of Ukraine, Mykola Karpyuk and Stanislav Kliha. The Supreme Court of Chechnya on May 26 sentenced them to 22.5 and 20 years in prison, respectively. According to the verdict, Karpyuk will be in prison for the first 10 years, while Klych will be in prison for the first 9 years, then both in a colony of strict regime.

On February 17, 2016, the Human Rights Center "Memorial" announced that it recognized the political prisoners of Ukraine's citizens, Mykola Karpyuk and Stanislav Kliha , who are held behind bars. According to human rights defenders, the indictment in this case is made up of violations and contains a description of crimes that do not exist. They stressed that Karpyuk and Klih are not guilty, and the investigation does not have any evidence that they had ever been to Chechnya.

In June 2016 in Grozny against Stanislav Klih began an investigation into the case of contempt of the court. Subsequently, the Chechen court added Klih month to 20 years of the colony.

On April 3, lawyer Ilya Novikov said that Ukrainian political prisoner Stanislav Kliha, who was illegally detained in Russia, traveled to the colony in Upper Ural.

Ambassador of Italy to RF Ragalini called the Crimean "referendum" for voting for independence

on Fri Jul 28, 2017 10:03 am
Ambassador of Italy to RF Ragalini called the Crimean "referendum" for voting for independence

Italian Ambassador to the Russian Federation, Cesare Maria Maria Ragalini, said that the so-called Crimean "referendum" in 2014 was "a vote for the country's independence", and also criticized sanctions against the Russian Federation.

Reported Tsenzor.NET referring to ZN.ua .

"Crimea was not the first country to vote for its independence in Europe," the Italian diplomat said in an interview with Corriere Della Sera.

He also skeptically appreciated the successes of Ukraine's European integration, making it clear that he considers Ukraine an area of ​​influence of Russia.

"Nobody denies the right of a sovereign state to join an international organization, but there is no doubt that there were strong political motives in the EU talks with Ukraine: it was a clear attempt to bring Kiev out of the historical influence of Russia. If this is the goal, the EU failed To achieve it", - said the ambassador.

Ragalini also doubted the effectiveness of EU sanctions against Russia. According to him, they are unlikely to change the attitude of the Kremlin to Ukraine. The diplomat spoke in favor of considering the issue of extending sanctions quarterly, and not once every six months, as it is now.

In addition, the ambassador stated that the Minsk agreements restrict the EU's actions to resolve the conflict in the Donbas.

"I believe that Europe could give more clear signals to both sides that the confrontation is no longer acceptable, but NATO still remains the main point," added Ragallini.

A deputy of the European Parliament has not ruled out Saakashvili's citizenship of Lithuania

on Fri Jul 28, 2017 10:15 am
A deputy of the European Parliament has not ruled out Saakashvili's citizenship of Lithuania

MP of the European Parliament, Pyatras Auschtravičius, suggests discussing the possibility of granting Lithuanian citizenship to former Georgian President and ex-head of Koshshini Mikhail Saakashvili.

His statements are based on local editions, reports Baltnews.

According to Auschwitz, first of all Saakashvili should be granted at least a residence permit in Lithuania.

"Saakashvili could then establish a consulting company or a political analyst. Granting Lithuanian citizenship will allow Saakashvili to operate in Europe, "the statement said.

Auschwiatwicz noted that the granting of Lithuanian citizenship is a "complicated matter".

"But I do not neglect such an opportunity either. It seems to me that President Valdas Adamkus could definitely become the person who would have ordered a word for the former head of Georgia", - said Auschwiatowicz.

Former diplomat conservative Zhigimantas Pavilionis also believes that Lithuania could accept Georgian politics, but Saakashvili himself should make a corresponding request.

Recall, July 26, the State Migration Service reported that by order of Poroshenko was deprived of citizenship of Ukraine Mikheil Saakashvili . The administration of Poroshenko confirmed that Saakashvili was deprived of citizenship . At the same time, they noted that the decree will not be published.

The ex-head of the Odessa regional state administration and former president of Georgia deprived of Ukrainian citizenship on the basis of Art. 19 of the Law of Ukraine "On Citizenship of Ukraine".

In particular, it refers to "deception, deliberate submission of false information or false documents."

Saakashvili himself said that he was going to return to Ukraine despite deprivation of citizenship.

Saakashvili in the United States pressed for Ukraine's "interference" in the election

on Fri Jul 28, 2017 10:21 am
Saakashvili in the United States pressed for Ukraine's "interference" in the election

Former governor of Odessa region Mikheil Saakashvili spoke about "dirty games of Ukrainian oligarchs".

He stated this in an interview with the American CNN channel.

"President Trump, for example, said something about Ukraine. We in Ukraine appreciate the support of the Ukrainian people on the part of the US, we fight Russians, the world should give Ukrainians due their heroic resistance, but on the other hand, President Trump was right. There are dirty games , Begun by some Ukrainian oligarchic circles, "Saakashvili said.

The politician believes that Ukrainian leaders have chosen the way to suppress democracy.

"The problem is that Ukrainian leaders chose a path similar to the general in the region - oligarchs, corruption, resource mobilization, suppression of democracy, and because of that, I became one of its leading opponents," added the ex-governor of the Odessa region.



Recall that recently the ex-president of Georgia and the former head of the Odessa Regional Administration Mikheil Saakashvili deprived citizenship of Ukraine after the General Prosecutor's Office of Georgia handed over to Ukraine facts about him, which he concealed.

In response, Saakashvili said he would sue President Petro Poroshenko for deprivation of Ukrainian citizenship.

Medvedchuk tries to convince that new anti-Russian sanctions are not aimed at supporting Ukraine

on Fri Jul 28, 2017 10:36 am
Medvedchuk tries to convince that new anti-Russian sanctions are not aimed at supporting Ukraine

Medvedchuk commented on anti-Russian sanctions in the United States

The anti-Russian sanctions of the United States are not an unprecedented support of Kiev, as Ukrainian politicians and experts say, but an attempt to meet the geopolitical ambitions of America, said Viktor Medvedchuk , the leader of the Ukrainian Choice.

He believes that the very title of the bill - "Opposition to America's opponents through sanctions" - indicates the willingness of the United States in the name of opposing "opponents of America" ​​- to sacrifice even the interests of American big business.

"As CNN reports with reference to officials and congressmen, concerns about the introduction of new anti-Russian sanctions were expressed by representatives of the largest US business. Among companies worried about possible losses from planned sanctions, in particular BP, Exxon, General Electric, Boeing, Citigroup, MasterCard, Visa. Ford, Dow Chemical, Procter & Gamble, International Paper, Caterpillar and Cummins also said potential problems, "Medvedchuk said.

In addition to his geopolitical ambitions, he believes, Washington completely ignores the demands of the EU to respect the economic interests of the countries of the association.

"The bill on the introduction of anti-Russian sanctions affecting the interests of European companies, has caused the EU's negative reaction and became an apple of disagreement between Brussels and Washington. The European energy company called them "unacceptable" on the eve of the US House of Representatives decision to impose sanctions. However, in Washington (traditionally) they did not listen to the EU opinion ", - said the leader of the" Ukrainian Choice ".

He did not become an argument for Washington, and the European Commission's response, which stated its willingness to respond appropriately to the US, said Medvedchuk.

"Support by 419 votes of the bill" Countering Americans through sanctions, "as well as the statement by the representative of the Senate Committee on International Affairs Bob Korker that the Senate" reached an agreement that would ... put the bill on the table for the president "- a vivid testimony to That the United States intends to strive for world hegemony, "concludes the leader of the" Ukrainian Choice ".

Recall, the  US Senate in the night against Friday almost unanimously voted for new sanctions against Russia.

Russian President Vladimir  Putin called "  new cynicism" new US sanctions. On July 28, Russia imposed sanctions against American diplomats.

A few days ago, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker  called on European parliamentarians to discuss possible EU responses to US approval of new sanctions  against the Russian Federation that could affect EU interests.

Instead, the  president of Lithuania supported new US sanctions  against the Russian Federation, despite the criticism of the European Union.

A journalist and publicist Leonid Radzihovsky wrote about this in his column on "Apostrophe".

"American Senators and billionaires do not open accounts with Russia, do not buy apartments and houses in Russia, do not go to get medical treatment, study, marry, so it's a one-way movement, because the Russian elite are striving for the West and America. The American elite, does not want to come here. They do business here, but they will not pick up business here, as in fact, they will not be taken away from business with Russia sanctions, "said Radzihovsky.
