WikiLeaks promises to prove non-Russian involvement in breaking the post of Democratic Party

WikiLeaks promises to prove non-Russian involvement in breaking the post of Democratic Party

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said he could prove Russia's lack of ownership of the Democratic Party's documents in 2016.

About this edition The Hill was reported by Congressman Dana Rohrabacher on the results of the meeting with Assange.

According to him, they had a three-hour conversation. This is the first meeting of the founder of WikiLeaks with the American politician since 2012.

"Julian firmly stated that the Russians were not involved in the break-up (mail) or the leakage of documents," said Dana Rohrabacher.

He also added that Assange is open for further discussion. The republican received from Assange receives information about US President Donald Trump.

Recall that on April 21, 2017, it was reported that the US authorities are planning to officially bring charges against the founder of the WikiLeaks organization, Julian Assange, and to obtain a warrant for his arrest.

Later, the prosecutor's office of Sweden abolished Assange's arrest . However, the London police said Assange was still arrested after he left the embassy of Ecuador in the capital of Great Britain.

The WikiLeaks portal was founded by Giulian Assange in 2006. The site team publishes secret documents received from informants.

In 2010, Swedish law enforcement agencies filed charges against Assange allegations of sexual offenses and requested Britain to deport the WikiLeaks founder who was in its territory.

Assange rejected the allegations, and also suggested that the law enforcement agencies of Sweden could issue him to the United States.

Britain has agreed to issue Assange, but Ecuador has granted him political asylum.

Since June 2011, Assange is in the embassy of Ecuador in London. If he leaves the diplomacy, he will be waiting for extradition to Sweden.

In Russia, blocked the site of American neo-Nazis

on Thu Aug 17, 2017 10:28 am
In Russia, blocked the site of American neo-Nazis

The site of the American neo-Nazis, The Daily Stormer, was blocked in Russia less than a day after being transferred to .ru.

This was reported by the provider RU-CENTER, reports Radio Liberty.

The representative of the registrar said that on August 17 Roskomnadzor addressed them and "demanded to consider the possibility" of blocking The Daily Stormer.

The site dailystormer.ru itself was not available until blocked. This is due to the fact that the support of the resource refused to service Cloudfare, which protected him from hacker attacks.

The Daily Stormer was forced to register in Russia when it was refused to serve American companies GoDaddy and Google. Companies did not like the site founder Andrew Anglin talking about a woman who died during the riots in Charlottesville.

Recall that in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 11 and 12, protests from so-called "white nationalists" and counter-protests were held, which left local residents.

During one of the demonstrations on Saturday, the car drove in the course of protesters who opposed the march of nationalists, resulting in the death of Heather Heyer.

The police detained James Fields attacker James Alex, who is accused of deliberate murder , in three cases of malicious injury and escape from the scene of an accident.

The court refused Fieldza in pledge.

Missile scandal: How the New York Times mistakenly accused Ukraine

Missile scandal: How the New York Times mistakenly accused Ukraine



It turns out that the great New York Times was mistaken, catastrophically mistaken: all that so many even Ukrainian politicians considered serious accusations of delivering Ukrainian rocket engines to North Korea - in fact, lies. And it turns out that many Ukrainians are very easily driven to throw in even absurd information, if it is thrown in through Western sources.

Yesterday, on August 14, an article appeared in the New York Times referring to Michael Elman, an expert on missiles at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, it was reported that the engines for North Korean ballistic missiles could illegally come from Ukraine.

On the same day, NSDC Secretary Alexander Turchinov denied this information.

A little later the information was refuted at the Yuzhmash plant.

This morning it became known that Michael Elman, who was referred to the investigation of The New York Times, denied his statement about the involvement of the Ukrainian authorities in the supply of missile engines to the DPRK.

"Yuzhmash" Actually produces rocket engines RD-843 - to civilian launchers and sells them to civilized countries, thus bringing great benefits to Ukraine and retaining competence for the production of engines. But of course, the Yuzhnoye Design Bureau does not work idiots, and they will not risk a huge market for their engines for the sake of absurd contacts with imposed sanctions and special services around the world by North Korea. Of course, for Russia and other manufacturers, Ukrainian engines are competitors in the world market, and the discrediting of Yuzhmash is a profitable business plan.

In 2012, the SBU detained a North Korean intelligence agent in Ukraine, and he received a prison term, rather than Ukrainian technology.

Ukraine, unlike Russia, has no ties with North Korea. Thus bringing a great benefit to Ukraine and retaining competence for the production of engines. But of course, the Yuzhnoye Design Bureau does not work idiots, and they will not risk a huge market for their engines for the sake of absurd contacts with imposed sanctions and special services around the world by North Korea. Of course, for Russia and other manufacturers, Ukrainian engines are competitors in the world market, and the discrediting of Yuzhmash is a profitable business plan. In 2012, the SBU detained a North Korean intelligence agent in Ukraine, and he received a prison term, rather than Ukrainian technology.

"Yuzhmash" from the very beginning of independence has repeatedly been accused and suspected of transferring missile technology, but only once these outbursts have not been confirmed. The work of the plant is constantly monitored by our Western partners, and it is thanks to the control and transparency of its work that Yuzhmash received official access to the European market.

The transfer of a rocket engine does not mean that a disk with drawings is being transmitted. This is the most complicated technological process - materials science, electronic systems, technologies, temperatures, because the engine is the heart of the rocket, the main node. And for the installation and production of missiles, engineers, setters, designers are required, who must participate in the missile project, whole groups of specialists are needed. Of course, If at least one Ukrainian was sent to North Korea, then it would have been a long time ago known.

If Ukraine had transferred strategic technologies to some countries under sanctions, US and EU special services would have published this data much earlier than any newspapers.

The expert , whose words were perverted by the largest American newspaper The New York Times, which organized the throw-in, already apologized and denied the newspaper's manipulation. Yes, the "New York Times" is also wrong, and also writes all kinds of nonsense sometimes. And this should be a lesson that no charges from abroad should force Ukrainians to immediately blame their own power and their own citizens without checking the charges, especially such grievous ones.

This story should be spread no less widely than the anti-Ukrainian outpourings were spread. I hope that all those who have been misled and assisted in disseminating false information will now show their responsibility and will spread the refutation with no less diligence.

The Economist apologized for the phrase "civil war on the Donbas"

The Economist apologized for the phrase "civil war on the Donbas"

The Economist Intelligence Unit, which belongs to the magazine group, apologized for the phrase "civil war in the Donbass", which was used in the study of the most comfortable cities in the world
This was reported by the reader The Economist Alexander Volkov on Facebook.

He wrote a letter to the researchers, in which he drew attention to the phrase that the decline in the Kyiv indexes in the rating was explained by the researchers by clutter, economic instability and "a prolonged civil war in the Donbas region."

"Why do you describe the prolonged Russian aggression against Ukraine in the Donbass as a" civil war "- as Moscow's propaganda does? In my opinion, you are deeply different from The Economist, which uses a different concept," Volkov said.

In addition, he drew attention to the fact that the researchers used transliteration of Donbass in Russian model, and not Donbas in Ukrainian.

A representative of The Economist Intelligence Unit sent Volkov an answer in which he apologized for using the phrase "civil war in the Donbass".

"We changed the term" civil war "to" conflict "for all future downloads of the study and future reports - we hope it will be fixed today as it should be done at our office in New York. We also changed Donbass to Donbas," - wrote the representative of The Economist Intelligence Unit.

He called the error "an inherited problem".

"When the conflict has just begun, it was called" civil war "and" internal war "or" not an international war "in many world media and international organizations."

He also noted that the rating of the most comfortable cities of the world The Economist is absolutely correct.

Recall, Kiev was among the ten most worst cities for life according to The Economist. Over the past five years, the Ukrainian capital has shown the fastest decline in the rating of comfortable cities for life.

British Ambassador to Ukraine Judith Hoff states that it is difficult for her to agree with the low rating of Kiev in the ranking of comfortable cities for the magazine The Economist.

"Black label" for the Kremlin: famous economist told about a new milestone in Western "offensive" to Russia

on Thu Aug 17, 2017 11:45 pm
"Black label" for the Kremlin: famous economist told about a new milestone in Western "offensive" to Russia

The new law on US sanctions against the Russian Federation is a new milestone in the Western "offensive" against Russia, since restrictive methods of this scale are being used by the Western world for the first time in history.

This opinion was expressed by Director of the Center for the Study of Post-Industrial Society and Professor of the Higher School of Economics in Moscow Vladislav Inozemtsev, reports Forbes .

According to him, the new law requires a report on the impact of extended sanctions on transactions with government debt obligations of the Russian Federation, related to illicit financial transactions with Russia; As well as reports on Russian oligarchs and quasi-state structures.

The executor in this case is the US Department of the Treasury, which, according to an economist, feels the slightest piety for Russia and its ruling elite.

"Therefore, in the coming years, there should be no" calm "in the discussion of the Russian theme - on the contrary, it received a guarantee of virtually indefinite presence in the American information field", - warned Inozemtsev.

He emphasized that the new law on sanctions extends the possibility of their application to a virtually indefinite circle of Russian legal entities and individuals who are not limited to a list of people guilty of violating the territorial integrity of Ukraine or the regime of previously imposed sanctions.

The economist drew attention to the fact that sanction measures are considered extraterritorial, so the US will work with other countries to "guarantee non-use of their financial systems to conceal the illegal financial activities of members of the Government of the Russian Federation."

"It seems to me that such formulations in legal acts of Western countries have never happened before," he stressed.

The professor added that the most painful is the article of a law that orders US government agencies to prepare and submit to Congress a report on Russian oligarchs and quasi-state structures.

Moreover, the report should be completed no later than January 29, 2018, that is, at the height of the campaign for re-election of Putin to the post of President of the Russian Federation.

"It is a question of a full-fledged investigation of the financial activities of Russian politicians, officials and heads of state companies - not only their own, but also those carried out in favor of the first person of the state. American lawmakers have also laid the financial backing for the process, identifying the rewards for informers who facilitate the receipt of information," - he said.

Foreigners believe that the new law on sanctions is dangerous for Russia not only by the strengthening of restrictive measures and the intensification of pressure on Russian partners on energy projects, but also by the fact that it gives rise to "hunting" for compromising the whole Russian elite, and also allows on a permanent basis Discredit the elite of Russia, depicting the banal corruption and corruptness of its individual representatives.

Note, according to Russian political scientist Andrei Piontkovsky , the new US sanctions against Russia will cause a serious blow to Putin entourage.
