The three main goals of Russia's hybrid war in Europe are named

on Tue Aug 15, 2017 10:01 am
The three main goals of Russia's hybrid war in Europe are named

Analysts of the private intelligence-analytical company Stratfor named the main goals of the hybrid war that Russia leads in Europe.

This is stated in the text of the editorial article of analysts, the text of which is available at the "Apostrophe".

Experts note that the most vulnerable to the hybrid methods of Moscow were the Baltic countries, which is explained by numerous ethnic Russian communities.

"Political parties that serve these segments of society have achieved significant results in parliamentary elections in their countries, giving Moscow a certain level of influence on their government," the document said. It is noted that the popularity of these political forces within the Russian communities is limited.

At the same time, the Kremlin has resorted to another means of undermining the authorities - to reduce the export of energy.

Russian hackers carry out massive cyber attacks against the Baltic states, while the information injections of Moscow are intended to undermine the trust of local citizens in the Western Alliance. At the same time, Russia is expanding its troops on the frontiers with these countries.

Methods of hybrid war of RF analysts also note in the countries of Central and Southern Europe. Most of these countries are heavily dependent on Russian energy and do not have territorial disputes with Russia, which dampens any concerns about the open invasion of the Kremlin. With the exception of Poland (bordered by the Kaliningradskomskleva) and Romania (which competes with Russia for its influence in Moldova), the countries of Central and Southern Europe tend to follow a pragmatic position in their relations with Moscow.

Moscow is trying to use the practicality of these states to kill the wedge between the EU members, including on sanctions.

Experts from the American company also point out that Moscow supports Euro-skeptic and extreme right organizations in Central and Southern Europe. Parties such as the "Five Star Movement" in Italy, "Jobbyk" in Hungary, "Change" in Poland, are trying to change the status quo on the issue of Western institutions. And Russia willingly encourages their actions, regardless of whether these parties come to power or not.

Against unfriendly countries, Moscow also uses cyberattacks and dissemination of propaganda materials.

For the fracture in the West of the Russian Federation can also use the Balkans. In relations with some states like Serbia, Moscow uses a friendly approach, providing privileges, economic assistance and energy discounts. With Belgrade, Moscow even established closer military cooperation by supplying weapons and creating a common "humanitarian center", which many consider to be an outpost for Russian spies. The Kremlin plans to build a similar center in the Republika Srpska, which is part of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

At the same time, experts note that Russia's relations with the members of the EU and NATO in the Balkans or the states that seek to become them are not so friendly. An example is Montenegro, which became a member of NATO, despite the attempts of the Russian Federation to arrange a coup in the country and to undermine the process of integration.

In the West, they pointed to problems in relations between Germany and the United States

on Tue Aug 15, 2017 10:03 am
In the West, they pointed to problems in relations between Germany and the United States

As a result of controversial actions by US President Donald Trump, relations between Washington and Berlin are at a record low.

This was stated by a German political scientist Jörg Forbrig in an interview with Segodnya.

According to him, the current administration White House questioned the strategic cooperation with Berlin as a guarantor of peace and stability in Europe.

"President Trump ambiguous attitude toward US support for European integration and commitment to the collective defense of NATO, which were the two pillars of US foreign policy in all post-war administration. The new president preferred to unilateral and protectionist approach led US Parisian climate agreement and the Trans-Pacific Partnership" - said Forbih.

This, according to experts, has caused concern in the government of Germany, which is committed to the principles of multilateralism and free trade, and the requirement Trump increase defense spending led to a sharp irritation in Berlin.

"These political differences included a massive drop in mutual trust Germans had trusted the United States for Trump as Russia under Putin. Overall, US-German relations probably are at a record low and very difficult to understand how they may be near a restored "- summed up a political scientist.

Russia, despite international sanctions, supplied North Korea's weapons for 17 years

on Tue Aug 15, 2017 10:06 am
Russia, despite international sanctions, supplied North Korea's weapons for 17 years



The data of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute show that Russia in the period from 1999 to 2016 exported to the DPRK thousands of samples of various weapons.

Namely: anti-tank complexes "Fagot", anti-aircraft missile systems Igla-1, armored personnel carriers BTR-80, antiship cruise missiles X-35. But there were no supplies from Ukraine to the DPRK. This was written on its page in Facebook by MP (MP), member of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on National Security and Defense Irina Friz, reports Censor .

Friez stressed that the data from open, authoritative sources, in particular the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute , show that the statement about the possible involvement of Ukraine in the DPRK missiles is not true, but at the same time confirm the arms deliveries to the DPRK by Russia.

" North Korea for the period received from the Russian Federation 3 thousand antitank complexes Fagot (AO-4), 1500 air defense missile systems Igla-1 (Sa-16, used to combat air targets), 32 BTR-80A, and 10 ... samples "Kh-35 Uran / SS-N-25". This marking should be understood as an anti-ship cruise missile X-35.

It seems surprising, but Russia was planning to deliver the same missiles in 2010 before the fall of the anti-Western Gaddafi regime to Libya, "said Freese.

However, the data of the Institute's database indicate that during the same period, Ukraine did not export to North Korea any weapons.

"If the supply to the subordination of the DPRK from Russia can be seen by a simple verification of an open source, it is difficult to imagine what samples and technologies were transferred along the dry and sea route through the common section of the border between the Russian Federation and the DPRK," Friez stated.

On August 14, the site of the American daily newspaper The New York Times published an article with the headline " The North Korean missile success is connected by the Ukrainian plant, the researchers say . " The article, referring to a study of the missile specialist at the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) Michael Elleman (English Michael Elleman) states that the recent successes of the DPRK in the tests of the intercontinental ballistic missile "were made possible through the purchase of powerful missile Engines on the black market, probably from the Ukrainian plant, which has historical links to the Russian missile program."

The Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov stated that the Ukrainian defense and aerospace complexes did not supply weapons and military technologies to North Korea , and false information disseminated by some foreign media about the alleged transfer of missile technologies by the Yuzhmash to the DPRK.

American marines conduct exercises on a simulator simulating the Third World War in Ukraine

American marines conduct exercises on a simulator simulating the Third World War in Ukraine

In a report from the Camp Ledge military base in North Carolina, American journalists describe how recently a unit of young marines was looking for a bag with mobile phones on which the enemy's plans were recorded.



"It crumbled through the countryside to check the unpaved streets and buildings in the East European village, stinking with manure and gunpowder." From the crowd of civilians who wrangled in a narrow corridor, there were shouts in Russian: "Help us! Doctor, "correspondents James Laporta and Rory Laverty, one of the marines blew up on a land mine, and then they were fired from the AK-47 and flung a grenade in them, the authors explain:" the Ukrainian village "is the so-called" immersion simulator " Led by veteran US Marine Greg Jackson.

" Now in the simulator of fighting with the natural movement that is on the base, Marines regularly fight with Russian-speaking insurgents in an unnamed Eastern European country, preparing for a conflict, which one of the instructors called "the third world war". What the contractor calls the script of the "Eastern bloc" no longer seems so unlikely considering that Russia annexed the Crimea and makes sorties to Eastern Ukraine, where Russian servicemen without uniforms, nicknamed "green men", are waging a low-intensity war against the forces Ukrainian government, "the article says.



"A small group of US servicemen are already in the field in Ukraine as instructors, they have set up a training center in Ukraine, where full-time employees are Ukrainians." In this center, a whole brigade can be deployed." .

In 2020, in the "Lezhen Camp" it is planned to open a polygon under the open sky. "But while the demand for sessions in the indoor simulator is high, where three platoons can be trained to the maximum, the infantry units that go on foreign trips are serviced without queue," the article says.

Smells of gunpowder and stool create an "aroma generator". So, according to the authors,"

The feeling of being thrown into a war-torn village near the Russian border is reproduced. "Sounds are also artificial - from the crickets of crickets to distant explosions and shots. " They need to be prepared for anything, "Jackson said of the infantry and intelligence units that work out the East European scenario on the" immersion Simulator ". "But, frankly, if the platoons of the US Marine Corps are deployed on the ground in Ukraine, this will mean that we are in the thick of the third world war."

The authors report that the Marines are also trained in "information security" with the help of so-called "role-players" "- people who in the exercise act as civilians or insurgents.Jaxson tells how" prostitute " Asked the young Marine for a cell phone number and received it. "After the session, Jackson announced to the platoon that, thanks to this" honey trap, "he had obtained the home addresses of most of them," the article says. "The Russian language spoken by" local civilians "in the" immersion simulator "is similar to what you can hear in some country in the eastern block, says Chip Olmsted, deputy director of the shooting range and training range," authors write. . "Performers of roles" are actors who are hired for money. Several years in the immersion simulator, this work was carried out by American citizens of Middle Eastern origin. "They shouted or pleaded with the military in Arabic or Pashto, but only occasionally - in Russian," the authors write. "In a newly invented town from the eastern bloc where local civilians speak Russian, the performers of roles are mostly people of Eastern European or Russian origin: first or second generation immigrants who live in the south of the US and speak fluent Russian and other Eastern European . They go through a rigorous language test for reliability and is expressed Olmsted, "very expensive", - says the article. US Army veterans, their task - use weapons and nimble, Variable tactics for hunting for marines. "In this case, the members of the Red Cell changed into civilian clothes, diverted attention, using prostitutes and appeals for urgent medical assistance, and also applied some tactics of insurgents that are used in Eastern Ukraine by Russian forces without uniforms," ​​it says. Article.

"Information on" Yuzhmash "is a clear provocation against Ukraine," - Groisman

"Information on" Yuzhmash "is a clear provocation against Ukraine," - Groisman

Prime Minister of Ukraine Vladimir Groisman states that information about the alleged sale of the South Machine Building Plant named after Makarov (UMZ, Dnepr) to the DPRK is a provocation.

As informs Censor.NET, with reference to Interfax-Ukraine , he reported this at a briefing on Tuesday in the Dnieper.

"The information on Yuzhmash is a clear provocation against Ukraine, I fully rely on the statement of the Secretary of the National Security Council of Ukraine and Yuzhmash himself that this was not," the prime minister said.

According to him, such sales were not and could not be.

As reported on August 14, The New York Times with reference to the expert conclusions on missile issues of the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) voiced assumption , That the Hwasong-14 ICBM launched in July is equipped with a rocket engine based on the Soviet RD-250 missile system developed in the 1960s for Soviet ICBMs.

The most likely supplier of technologies for the Korean ICBM engine in the publication is the Ukrainian state enterprise "Yuzhmash" (Dnepr), which, according to NYT, "remained one of the main producers of Russian missiles even after Ukraine gained independence."

Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov said that the Ukrainian defense and aerospace complexes did not supply weapons and military technology to North Korea, and false information disseminated by some foreign media about the alleged transfer of DPRK missile technologies by Yuzhmash is most likely provoked by Russian special services.

I don't believe Ukrainian government condoned or knew, - expert Elleman on North Korean missile engines

I don't believe Ukrainian government condoned or knew, - expert Elleman on North Korean missile engines



Senior Fellow for Missile Defense at the IISS Mike Elleman, who was quoted as an expert by New York Times for the article about missile engines used by North Korea, posted his own reaction to the issue.





In 2012, Ukraine's Security Service detained North Korean spies who were working covered as sales agents in Minsk and were noticed by SBU after they tried to contact a company affiliated with missile construction bureau Yuzhne (Pivdenne). They also tried to hunt secret engineering documents and recruit Ukrainian citizens, who turned them in to SBU.

Earlier, The New York Times cited an expert analysis and classified assessments by American intelligence agencies stating that North Korea's success in testing an intercontinental ballistic missile that appears able to reach the United States was made possible by black-market purchases of powerful rocket engines probably from a Ukrainian factory with historical ties to Russia's missile program.

National Security and Defense Council Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov said in a commentary Ukraine always obliges its international obligations, so the state defense and airspace industries have never delivered weapons and military technologies to North Korea.

Yuzhmash also said in a commentary that the article in The New York Times was a provocation.
