Piontkovsky called the main reason for the failure of Putin's plan with Trump

Piontkovsky called the main reason for the failure of Putin's plan with Trump

The Kremlin's special intervention to intervene in the American elections, which led to the chair of the US president pro-Russian-conceived Donald Trump, turned out to be Russia's pyrrhic victory and led to her international isolation.

This opinion was expressed by Russian political scientist Andrei Piontkovsky in his column on Kasparov.ru .

"The Kremlin did not understand one very important circumstance. One man who is not close to the brain and put him in an armchair at the Oval Office in the White House is not enough to change the foreign policy of the United States.

The United States is a developed democracy with a multilevel system of checks and balances. The large-scale Operation "Trumpnash" with a crash failed. The victory of the Kremlin turned out to be Pyrrhic, "said Piontkovsky.

According to him, the American annual security conference in Aspen on July 19-22 was a turning point in which practically all the leaders of the American security forces, both the former and the current administrations, took part.

"In their speeches, for the first time in three and a half years of the Kremlin's hybrid military operations, two fundamental points were clearly expressed: a clear understanding of Putin's goals of war, and a firm determination to defeat him, a collective remake of the historical Fullton language, Winston Churchill," wrote a political scientist.

It was after this meeting that the two chambers of the Republican Congress adopted an unprecedented, overwhelming majority, a law on sanctions against the axis of evil: Russia, Iran, the DPRK.

"As a result, Tramp was deprived of any US policy in the Russian direction, and in addition to a significant increase in sectoral economic sanctions, a special section of the law (on personal sanctions) inflicted a devastating blow to the very heart of the Putin regime, and this was done in the best traditions of the asymmetric warfare" , - summed up Piontkovsky.

US State Department called Putin's visit to self-proclaimed Abkhazia "unacceptable

US State Department called Putin's visit to self-proclaimed Abkhazia "unacceptable

The US Department of State called the "inappropriate" visit by Russian President Vladimir Putin to self-proclaimed Abkhazia.

The statement was made by the official representative of the foreign policy department Heather Naurer, according to the State Department website.

Naurer urged Russia to withdraw troops from the positions defined for the conflict and to refuse recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

"The United States fully supports the sovereignty of Georgia and its territorial integrity in the borders recognized by the international community, and also rejects Russia's recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia," Naurer said.

She stressed that the visit of the Georgian territories occupied by Russia violates the Geneva international discussions on the conflict in Georgia in 2008.

Earlier, Georgia and NATO criticized Putin's visit to self-proclaimed Abkhazia .

Putin visited Abkhazia August 8 - the ninth anniversary of the war in Georgia.

Independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia from Georgia is recognized only by Russia, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Nauru and Vanuatu.

Volunteer spoke about serious conflicts of Zakharchenko people with "Moscow" in Donbas

Coordinator of the Volunteer Group "Patriot" Oleg Kotenko said that between the people the leader of the so-called DNR Oleksandr Zakharchenko and the Moscow curators on the Donbass are in a serious conflict.

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

"At this time, the militants do not solve absolutely anything, many of them have even been missing and out of sight. I do not rule out that they were just shot or jailed..." said Kotenko.

According to him, in Donbass there are forces proDNRivsk and pro-Moscow, between whom there is a struggle for power.

"ProDNRivskii are those who always want to be in power, such as Zakharchenko. But without Moscow's support, they can not, of course,, and when pure Russians come, they say that they will be replaced, that's why they are in conflict with the pro-Soviet forces and Field commanders could easily talk, "- said the volunteer.

Kotenko stressed that while most of the issues, including those relating to prisoners of war, were resolved through Moscow.

"As for the Russian special services, the FSB, they are only interested in Russians ... They are not interested in the" militia ", as they call it, in our prisons absolutely. They do not need them at all," he summed up.

The Russian reconnaissance aircraft flew over the buildings of the Pentagon, the Capitol and the CIA in Washington. VIDEO

The Russian reconnaissance aircraft flew over the buildings of the Pentagon, the Capitol and the CIA in Washington. VIDEO

The Russian aircraft conducted an observation flight on 9 August over the buildings of the Capitol, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Pentagon and other decision-making centers in Washington after the defense department sanctioned such actions.

According to Cenzor.NET, with reference to Radio Liberty , the flight, which caused concern in the media and in US political circles, is part of a long-term surveillance program under the open skies treaty, which allows both countries to fly unarmed observation aircraft over each other's territory.



CNN reported that, in addition to flying over Washington, the Russian Tu-154M had to fly over Bedminster in New Jersey, where President Donald Trump is vacationing, as well as over the presidential residence at Camp David in the state of Maryland.

Over the past 15 years, the US and Russia have carried out 165 such "familiarization" flights. As confirmed in the US Department of Defense, such air reconnaissance is negotiated by both sides at least 72 hours before the flight, and on board the aircraft must be present representatives of the country over which the flight is made.

Nevertheless, the Politico news website reports, some in America regarded the appearance of the Russian TU-154M as proof that the Russian authorities will "troll" President Trump.

Boycott presidential poll, says Russian leftist Sergei Udaltsov

Boycott presidential poll, says Russian leftist Sergei Udaltsov

Call for broader opposition to stay away from ‘manipulated’ contest likely to test Navalny

Russia’s most prominent leftwing opposition politician has called for a boycott of next year’s presidential contest in protest at the “manipulation” of the electoral system.

The rallying cry from Sergei Udaltsov, who was released from prison on Wednesday after serving four and half years for his role in street protests, will be a test for Alexei Navalny, the anti-corruption blogger who is campaigning to be allowed to run against president Vladimir Putin.

“The most correct path for the opposition in the face of the constant manipulation of our electoral system would be a collective and active boycott of these elections,” Mr Udaltsov said on Thursday.

Many political analysts believe calling for a boycott would be Mr Navalny’s most likely option if he is blocked from registering as a candidate — a decision due around the new year

Mr Udaltsov, 40, was one of the most active participants in the street protests in Moscow in 2011 and 2012 that were triggered by concerns about election fraud but soon turned into a movement against Mr Putin...................

ex-ambassador of the United States in Ukraine dispelled all myths about lethal weapons

on Thu Aug 10, 2017 10:11 pm
ex-ambassador of the United States in Ukraine dispelled all myths about lethal weapons

Attempts to argue the refusal to provide weapons to Ukraine do not stand up to any criticism
This is stated by former US Ambassador to Ukraine John Herbst, the Voice of America reports .

According to him, the statements that "Ukraine is a deeply divided country" is obsolete and begins at the CIA's 1990s report on a possible split in our country.

As to the argument about the hopeless corruption of Ukraine, Herbst notes that this statement is not complete and misleading. Instead, Herbst noted among the achievements of Ukraine, the purge of the banking system, the reform of procurement, the transition to a single market price for gas, which allowed reducing the budget deficit by 80%.

Moreover, the thought that the United States is allegedly not very interested in Ukraine is contrary to the words of the head of the Pentagon, Jim Mettis, who noted the growing aggression of the Russian Federation and its plans to change the existing international order. It is in order to achieve these goals, stressed Herbst, Russian President Vladimir Putin began a war with Georgia and Ukraine.

Another mistake Herbst calls the argument that the population of the Russian Federation, like Putin, "are ready to lose military forces in hostilities." In fact, numerous polls showed that Russians do not want their soldiers fought in Ukraine.

The former US ambassador states that the provision of defense weapons to Ukraine, especially the Javelin anti-tank complexes, would mean even more losses for Russia in the event of a new wave of massive aggression.

He also considered the statement that it was not necessary to send anti-tank weapons to Ukraine, since Russia seems to have 20,000 tanks and it will always send new ones.

"Ukrainians have stabilized the collision line, but losses are occurring every day, and since the Minsk II agreement, Moscow has taken an extra hundreds of square kilometers, providing anti-tank weapons will help protect Moscow from taking even more," commented Herbst.

The latest argument against the promise of Ukraine's arms is that it "sow disputes between the United States and the main European allies." However, according to Herbst, although Germany and France oppose, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that if the United States give Ukraine arms, then Berlin will continue to work with Washington to resolve the situation in the Donbass.

"The United States undertook to guarantee the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine when it gave up nuclear weapons in 1994. The provision of defense weapons to Ukraine would take place in accordance with this commitment and would increase Moscow's expenditure on the war. The Kremlin will leave the Donbass, even if not, it will force Moscow to spend additional resources in Ukraine, and they will have to think twice before giving up the Baltic Challenge, where our commitments within NATO will force us to act more decisively", - summed up the former US Ambassador.

In June, a complete list of US weapons was approved , which may soon be available to Ukraine.
