EU was informed about the readiness to supply lethal weapons and military equipment to Ukraine

on Wed Aug 09, 2017 2:07 pm
EU was informed about the readiness to supply lethal weapons and military equipment to Ukraine

Ukraine can agree with Czech producers on the supply of military equipment and weapons.

This was stated by Ambassador of the Czech Republic in Ukraine Radek Matula in an interview with the publication "European Truth" .

He explained that earlier the Czech policy limited the possibility of supplying weapons in Ukraine, but now between countries opened the possibility of cooperation in supplying Ukraine with certain types of military equipment based on the standard process of export licensing.

"The ban on the supply of military equipment and materials to Ukraine in the winter of 2014. We are now standardizing this procedure, which means that for each case the issue of a license will be considered separately," Matul said.

At the same time, he noted that he did not have information, received from Ukraine requests for interest in certain types of weapons. But the ambassador is certain that a number of Czech manufacturers of military products are already contacting their Ukrainian counterparts on this issue.

Russia is preparing an offensive to Odesa region for the "liberation" of Transnistria

on Wed Aug 09, 2017 2:10 pm
Russia is preparing an offensive to Odesa region for the "liberation" of Transnistria

On the part of the self-proclaimed unrecognized "Transnistrian Moldavian Republic" there are unhealthy signals indicating the actual actions on its withdrawal from the peace treaty

This is stated on Facebook by the head of the permanent delegation of Ukraine to the Parliamentary Assembly of NATO, MP from the BPP Irina Friez.

"So, after the PMR authorities raised the issue of using the flag of the Russian Federation, as the state, the so-called head of the PMR administration, Alexander Martynov, announced the intentions of Tirupol to legitimize the institute of bailiffs in the territory of the PMR," she said.

Thus, she said, we can talk about the successive steps of the "PMR" towards the Anschluss with Russia for the Kremlin's silent consent.

"Since it is clear to all that there are no state institutions in the Transnistrian region, and there is a puppet leadership of a separatist unrecognized territory, the Tiraspol policy testifies to another violation of international agreements by Russia," she adds.

At the same time, she draws attention to the appearance in Russia of certain materials that are considering plans to "offensive operations on the southern section of the Odessa region, landing a Russian landing for the purpose of organizing the" corridor "to the" PMR".

"Such a development of the situation in the southwest direction requires resolute political and diplomatic action by Ukraine," Friez notes.

In this regard, she sent the secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchinov a proposal to minimize the threats of Russian subversion against Ukraine from the territory of the TMR, as well as the return of Tiraspol to fulfill obligations under the Peace Agreement.

In June, deputy Chief of Staff of the Naval Forces (IMS) of Ukraine Andriy Ryzhenko called the most vulnerable place of the Black Sea coast in the event of the Russians strike from the sea.

The military expert called Putin's army training to be more dangerous for Ukraine than the "West-2017"

The training of the Russian military "Combat Brotherhood -2017", which will take place immediately after the exercises "West-2017" at the end of September, poses a real threat to the national security of Ukraine.

This was stated by the military expert Oleksiy Arestovich in a comment to the "Apostrophe".

"Few people talk about these studies, but there is the opinion that the main issues of an offensive against Ukraine, the Baltic states or Poland will be spent during the" Fighting Brotherhood, "when everyone relaxes and exhales, because the focus is shifting to" West 2017" , And everyone forgets about "Fighting Brotherhood", but it will not go away", - the expert is sure.

The combat capability of the Ukrainian Army is now higher than ever, the Center for Eastern European Studies



In the conditions of the war with Russia, the state of the Ukrainian Army has improved significantly

The state of the Ukrainian army is now better than ever. This is evidenced by the results of a study by the Center for East European Studies .

"Annexation of Crimea by Russia and the first weeks of the war in Donbas showed that the Ukrainian armed forces at the time - a structure that is not capable of any effective action in the face of minimal threat", - stated in the research results.

The Center stressed: "The war on the Donbass formed the Ukrainian army. She motivated the soldier, forced the Ukrainian Defense Ministry and the government to adapt the structure - for the first time since its inception - to the real operational needs and to cover the costs of preventing collapse in the field of training and equipment. At least to a level that makes it possible to enter the war on an equal footing with pro-Russian separatists."

Russians told about their "patriotic" readiness to abandon US goods

Journalist Alexander Sotnik conducted a poll among residents of Moscow on the introduction of US new sanctions against the RF .

A video of people polling is posted on the YouTube channel of the journalist.

"And none of them said:" But this grave Kremlin would not go with their hothouses! .. "They are worthy. They deserve a catastrophe: Answering the question" Which products of American production are you prepared to refuse to respond to US sanctions? "Muscovites have counted a lot of goods and brands, the disappearance of which, in their opinion, will not entail" nothing terrible. "Only a few expressed surprise at the forced refusal of the usual things," said Sotnik on his Facebook page.



As reported by the "Apostrophe", social networks mocked the statement of the head of the faction "Just Russia" in the State Duma Sergei Mironov that the answer to the adoption in the United States of a new law on sanctions and strengthening the regime of sanctions from the EU should be the introduction of a ban on the import of alcohol.
