US-Russia relations could get worse, - Secretary of State Tillerson

The head of the U.S. Department of State Rex Tillerson believes the relations between his country and the Russia Federation could get worse.

He told a briefing in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, Censor.NET reports citing the U.S. Department of State.

"The relationship, as you know, on Russia continues to be under considerable stress. As I indicated in my first trip to Moscow, and meetings at the Kremlin with President Putin following those meetings, the relationship was at a historic low since the end of the Cold War and it could get worse," the secretary of state said.

Tillerson said that the question of the events of the last week "is: Is it getting worse or can we maintain some level of stability in that relationship, and continue to find ways to address areas of mutual interest and ways in which we can deal with our differences without those becoming open conflicts as well?"

Last week, the U.S. Senate passed the new sanctions bill against Russia overwhelmingly and sent it to Trump for signature. Russia in response restricted U.S. diplomatic missions' access to several facilities and demanded to shorten the staff of the mission by 755 people by Sept. 1.

Amazingly ashamed: a journalist from Russia told how in Ukraine she was struck by a stand with those killed in the ATO

Amazingly ashamed: a journalist from Russia told how in Ukraine she was struck by a stand with those killed in the ATO



A well-known Russian journalist Eugenia Albats said that she was very embarrassed when she visited the state archive in Khmelnitsky, when she saw a booth with the names of those who perished in the Donbass.

"There are portraits of young people, 10 or 11 portraits, dead in the Donbass, and she (a woman who showed her a synagogue in Slavuta, Khmelnytsky region - ed.) Says to me:" It was difficult for mothers to grow them in the 90's. Do not you imagine what was there, and now they are dead. That's what you really do, really, think that we are eating children? "- Altats told the radio station" Echo of Moscow ".

"And it was so shameful to me, and then in the Khmelnytsky Regional State Archive, where I came to watch rabbinical books, there in front of the reading room, well, at least 100 names. And all:" Avdiyivka died"," Donetsk airport was killed", "Gorlivka's Death," "Killed from Wounds, Kiev Hospital" and so on, etc., and the feeling of such terrible shame for what your authority does and for the fact that millions of my fellow citizens support this A nightmare,"a journalist said.

On clarifying the question of the leader, the Ukrainians lay responsibility for the assassinations in the Donbass on the power of the Russian Federation, Altats said: "Yes, of course. There, actually, there is not even a question. They are, after all, well... You know, the zombobashchik can tell everything, But the fact that this Russian aggression is not even a question of any doubt."

The journalist also remembered that, before the aggression of Russia against Ukraine for many Ukrainians, Vladimir Putin was a favorite: "And this is another interesting thing. Putin was such a favorite there, a macho (this is what one man told me). Such ... Here, all They said: "Look, Russians have a president." All. That's over. Absolute disappointment. They stopped watching Russian channels. The passion of the Russian president was completely over."

"This does not mean that they love theirs." I repeat again, I did not meet anyone who spoke well about power. I did not meet any person, but I talked with very and very many, but if that was what was called Soft power in Putin, everything in Ukraine, it's over. It's not at all. It's simply not there at all, "explains Altats.

"You still know, colossal, in those whom I talked to, insult. Here, I say to you, this is the question," And you were not afraid to come here? And what, do you really think that we are eating children and we are all fascists? "- they have some, you know ... They are deeply offended by what they think about them," she added.

"But this is a shame ... I remember well how I felt this feeling of shame at the shooting place of the Kovnovsky ghetto - this is the town of Kaunas in Lithuania - where, on the one hand, the Holocaust Museum, on the one hand, was built in the 90's Museum I was walking around this museum and looking at pictures, reading about how many hundreds of thousands of people were sent to Siberia (Lithuanians). In any case, not only the Nazis' wives, although they were enough there, how many were shot like Etc., and so on, I had such a feeling of awful shame. I realized that we were in S cats and victims, and, here, the same, of course, is now in Ukraine, and I am so embarrassed in front of them, "concluded Albace.

Russia will be forced to change strategy: Ukraine explained how the transfer of weapons from the US will change the situation in the ATO

Military expert Alex Arestovich explained how the transfer of weapons from the United States to Ukraine could affect the situation in the area of ​​the anti-terrorist operation in the Donbass.

He said this in an interview with the "Apostrophe".

According to Arrestovich, Russia's earlier attack on Ukrainian positions cost two corpses and a couple of trapped machine guns, and now it will cost six carcasses and the object of armored vehicles has been shot down.

"Even for a crazy country like Russia, which is ready to spend a lot of resources on the war, the loss of several armored vehicles every month is very expensive, they will accumulate heavy losses in six months and will be forced to change the strategy," he said.

Released killer of Ukrainian schoolboy Chubenko Pogodin is linked to terrorist attack on MH17

on Wed Aug 02, 2017 10:58 am
Released killer of Ukrainian schoolboy Chubenko Pogodin is linked to terrorist attack on MH17



Terrorist Vadim Pogodin, who killed Ukrainian schoolboy Stepan Chubenko in the Donbas in 2014, was probably involved in the terrorist attack upon MH17 plane in 2014 over the Donbas.

This was announced by Novaya Gazeta journalist Pavel Kanygin, Censor.NET reports.

"Last weekend, Vadim Pogodin was released by Crimean law enforcers. Ukraine and "DPR" [self-proclaimed republic of the Donbas - ed.] suspect the 46-year-old leader of Kerch battalion of execution of schoolboy Stepan Chubenko in Donetsk. Both Ukrainian and Donetsk investigators say Pogodin killed the 16-year-old in late July 2014 with four shots to the back of his neck," the story reads.

Chubenko was detained in July 2014 in Donetsk, allegedly for wearing a blue and yellow ribbon. Pogodin called the boy a "Right Sector agent," and together with comrades tortured him, tied his arms behind his back, kicked his teeth, and then shot dead. Pogodin made four shots in the back of his neck.

Pogodin then spent several months in Donbas, later - in Moscow and Crimea. On June 20, 2017, he was detained in Yalta for 40 days upon request of the Ukrainian side. Pogodin, a Ukrainian citizen, was meant to be extradited to Ukraine.

"Moscow could have easily give him away," Kanygin wrote. "I have no doubts that Pogodin could have joined extradited criminals, if not for one detail.

"The detail is that Duma members and other "heroes" were lobbying his interests - probably because he knows a lot."

Pogodin, the author claims, belonged to the narrow circle of "Donbas adventure pioneers" along with Russians Alexander Boroday, Igor Girkin, Sergey "Khmury" Dubinsky, Igor "Bes" Bezler, and Ukrainian Alexander Khodakovsky. In 2014, these people led the Donetsk riot, but gave away their roles later in 2015.

"But there's more than old friendship that unites these "veterans," I believe.

"They know who possessed the Buk system in July 2014, the one that downed the Malaysian Boeing. Each of these six people must know exactly what happened in the sky over Torez on July 17, 2014. And of course, if any of them is extradited to Ukraine (under any pretext), this might be a gift to MH17 investigators, including Ukraine. ...

"The sadist not only avoids being extradited, but is released. He will be tried neither in Russia, not in "DRP"," the authors concludes.

US think tank to publish report on Trump-Russia collusion

on Wed Aug 02, 2017 10:28 pm
US think tank to publish report on Trump-Russia collusion

The U.S. think tank Center for American Progress (CAP) has drafted a 50-page report on publicly known interactions between the Trump campaign and Russia during the lead-up to Election Day.

Censor.NET reports citing BuzzFeed.

The report, a draft of which was reviewed by BuzzFeed News ahead of its release Wednesday, makes the bold claim that "it is now clear there was collusion" and "this is the biggest political scandal in American history."

CAP's report, which includes several appendices linking to news reports and quotes from the Trump administration, does not include any new information, but it does represent a push for a dramatic change of tone for Democrats in Congress.

"We're... trying to convey that it's time to stop beating around the bush on Trump's collusion with Russia. There is a mountain of evidence that Trump and his associates colluded with Russia and it's time to start saying so," Adam Jentleson, senior strategic adviser and former deputy chief of staff for Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid, told BuzzFeed News in an email.

"We think it's time to be a lot more forward-leading because the evidence is overwhelming."

"I think the reason why we're putting this report out is that we need to sort of face the facts of what's staring us in the face here," Max Bergmann, a senior fellow at CAP and author of the report, told BuzzFeed News. "When you piece it all together and you lay out the facts, all the information that we know… the picture becomes very clear. And what is clear is that the president's campaign was willing to collude with Russians and did."

The Justice Department under special counsel Robert Mueller, the House and Senate intelligence committees and the Senate Judiciary Committee are all still conducting investigations on Russia interference in the US election and any involvement by the Trump campaign.

Russia declared a full-fledged trade war, which will last for decades, - Medvedev about US sanctions

Russia declared a full-fledged trade war, which will last for decades, - Medvedev about US sanctions

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that by introducing new sanctions, the US declared a full-fledged trade war.

As reported by Censor.NET , he wrote about this in Facebook.

"The signing by the US President of a new sanctions law against Russia creates several consequences: first, the hope of improving our relations with the new US administration is the end Secondly, Russia declared a full-fledged trade war, and thirdly, the Trump administration demonstrated complete impotence, most demeaningly transferring executive powers to Congress. This changes the alignment of forces in politics FIR US circles,"- he wrote.

"The sanction regime is codified and will last for decades, unless some miracle happens. Moreover, it will be tougher than the Jackson-Vanik law, because it is comprehensive and can not be postponed by special orders of the president without the consent of the Congress.
