United States may require Russia to close one of its consulates in the US

The United States may require Russia to close one of its consulates in the United States.

This, with reference to diplomatic sources, reports Kommersant.

Such a decision by the States could be a response to the sanctions imposed by Moscow against American diplomats.

Currently, Russia has 4 Consulate General in the United States, and the US has three in Russia.

The decision of America to respond can be announced before September 1.

Recall that on July 30, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that 755 American diplomats should leave the Russian Federation.

Later in the US, they said they were preparing a response to the sending of US diplomats from the Russian Federation.

Donald Trump also thanked Putin for sending out American diplomats from Russia, as this would allow "save a lot of money."

It became known how many Ukrainians were victims of slave traders in Britain

It became known how many Ukrainians were victims of slave traders in Britain

More than 200 Ukrainian citizens became victims of the international network of trafficking in human beings - they were brought to the United Kingdom for forced labor

This was stated by Oleg Slobodyan, aide to the head of the State Border Guard Service, reports Espresso.

"In general, this channel was organized by participants from several countries, operating since 2012. There are grounds to say that more than 200 people have been victims of the organizers of this channel, but, unfortunately, not everyone wants to cooperate with the investigation," said Slobodian.

According to him, it is actually about slavery in the 21st century, when people were deceived, taking advantage of their aspirations to help their families and earn money, slavery to other countries.

At the same time, according to Major Police Andrei Gomenyuk, the Ukrainians received a meager salary there, lived and worked under terrible conditions of insecurity.

Attack on GPS navigation of naval vessels in the Black Sea suggests new Russian cyber weapons

Attack on GPS navigation of naval vessels in the Black Sea suggests new Russian cyber weapons

Spoofing-attack on GPS, which misled marine ships in the Black Sea, suggests thoughts of Russian cyber weapons.

As reported by Censor.NET with reference to Inopressu, this is stated in the article New Scientist .

"Reports on problems with satellite navigation on the Black Sea suggest that Russia may be experiencing a new GPS spoofing system (spoofing attack - a situation in which one person or program successfully masquerades as another by falsifying data and getting illegal Advantages. - Ed.)", - says the material of the popular science edition.

"Perhaps this is the first hint of the existence of a new form of electronic weapons, which will be available to everyone - from rogue countries to petty criminals," writes journalist David Hambling.

On June 22, the US Navy Department received a message: the captain of the ship near Novorossiysk discovered that the GPS had incorrectly located its location: it allegedly was on land at the Gelendzhik airport. Having ascertained that the equipment itself is working properly, the captain contacted the neighboring vessels and found that the signals from the aeronautical information service indicated that they were all at the same airport. "It touched at least 20 vessels," the newspaper writes.

The author notes: "Although the incident has not yet been confirmed, experts believe that this is the first recorded case of manipulation of the GPS - spoofing attacks, which had long warned, but "Nature".

It was never observed before. "In this case, spoofing is a fake signal from a ground station that deceives a satellite receiver."

In 2013, Todd Humphreys (University of Texas) demonstrated how GPS spoofing can knock the yacht out of the way with the latest equipment. " The operation of the receiver during the incident in the Black Sea was in many respects similar to what happened during the controlled attacks carried out by my team, "says Humphreys."

"According to Humphreys, That Russia is experimenting with a new form of electronic weapons. Last year, GPS spoofing randomly disrupted the operation of receivers in smartphone applications in the center of Moscow, "the author writes." A false signal, Which seems to be concentrating around the Kremlin, "throws" all those who are nearby, for 32 km to Vnukovo airport.

This is probably for defense purposes: many guided bombs, missiles and UAVs are guided by GPS navigation, and successful spoofing will not allow them to hit targets, "says David Last, former president of the Royal Institute of Navigation (UK)," Said that the incident on the Black Sea suggests the existence of a new device that can provoke widespread disruptions, for example, if applied in an ongoing dispute with Ukraine, "the newspaper writes.

Americans to invest $100 million in gold mining in Ukraine

Americans to invest $100 million in gold mining in Ukraine



The American company, Avellana Gold, has developed a project to extract gold and gold-polymetallic ore in Transcarpathia (Zakarpattia Region of Ukraine), and will invest about $100 million in this project, as reported by the State Service of Ukraine on Geodesy, Cartography, and Cadastre.

The company plans to develop new infrastructure and a development strategy for the Muzhijevo deposit using modern equipment. The old infrastructure of the Muzhijevo deposit limited the capacity of the mine, the production volume has reached 120,000 tons per year.

Investors plan to organize a highly efficient production system aimed at long-term operations with an annual output of 500,000 tons. In order to accomplish this, Avellana Gold plans to include the development of both gold and polymetallic ores. In fact, this will be its new production strategy.

The company is led by Brian Savage, the Chairman of the Board of Directors for Pioneer Management LLC, a private company he founded in 2009 to provide consulting and investments in projects and companies in the natural resources sector.

The Ukrainian office of Avellana Gold is headed by Mykola Gozhyk, who was previously the chief engineer of Zakarpatpolymetal LLC and the director of Saulyak LLC.

In 2014 it was reported that a license for mining at the Muzhijevo gold deposit was owned by the ‘Carpathian ore company,’ which was controlled by the Donetsk businessman, Valery Bredykhin, associate of the former Minister of Internal Affairs, Yanukovych Vitaly Zakharchenko.

However, later that year, the company re-registered and became a private joint-stock company, without changing its name. The new owner, according to the register, became Avellana Gold LTD, registered in New York.

Interfax-Ukraine reported earlier that Avellana Gold bought the ‘Carpathian ore company’ in 2016. Details of the deal were not disclosed..................

The Soviets responded to hysterics in Russia: the construction of the US Navy base in Ochakov

The Soviets responded to hysterics in Russia: the construction of the US Navy base in Ochakov

Construction of the operational center of the Naval Forces of Ukraine at the naval base in Ochakov, Mykolaiv region, by engineers of the US Navy fully complies with the legislation of Ukraine

This was reported on Facebook by the People's Deputy, member of the Verkhovna Rada's Committee on National Security and Defense Irina Frisz.

Frice commented on recent statements by Deputy Chairman of the RF Federation Council on Defense and Security Franz Klyntsevych on supposed provocations by the US Navy: "Obviously, Franz Klytsevych did not notice any changes in the legislative and foreign policy of Ukraine."

The People's Deputy recalled that this year the Verkhovna Rada adopted the Law "On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine (Regarding the Foreign Policy Course of Ukraine)".

"The bill allowed us to clearly set Ukraine's course for membership in the North Atlantic Alliance. I want to remind Franz Klyntsevich that the non-aligned status was abolished by Ukraine shortly after the annexation of the Crimea and the beginning of the Russian aggression in the Donbass," Frice said.

The People's Deputy noted that Ukraine considers such construction as an urgent need to increase the defense capabilities of the state, to develop the Ukrainian Navy, and to conduct and coordinate joint security measures with NATO member states.

"Such a necessity is caused by Russia's long-term policy aimed at the destruction of Ukrainian independence and sovereignty, and from 2014 - the conduct of an undeclared war," she said.
