The United States providing with lethal weapons to Ukraine: Poroshenko made important remarks

on Sat Aug 19, 2017 11:01 am
The United States providing with lethal weapons to Ukraine: Poroshenko made important remarks

If the United States provides Ukraine with lethal weapons, this will, above all, be a symbol of Washington's active engagement in Ukrainian affairs and signaling to European states the need to move on to active action.

This is written by the counselor of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Horbulin in his article for the publication " Mirror of the Week ".

He emphasized that the theme of "lethal weapons" is considered by many in Ukraine as a kind of panacea for all problems, while much of these problems are in completely different areas - effective management of the national security sector, fight against corruption, effective reforms and economic growth.

Horbulin drew attention to the fact that now the national interests of Ukraine and foreign policy interests of the USA coincide, but this will not necessarily be so permanent, as well as decisions that will be good for US foreign policy, may not always be equally good for the national interests of Ukraine.

The advisor to the president of Ukraine recalled the words of the Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, Ron Prosoor, who in 2015 stated that his country, after listening to the international community, left the Gaza Strip, but after that the territory became a "enclave of terrorism".

"This conversation, first of all, that the consequences always have to live in a country that was advised: the advisers will be far away, and in the event of failure, they will only break their hands with embarrassment. It is not a question of ignoring the advice of our partners, but it is put forward. They should follow with healthy skepticism and rationality", - summed up Gorbulin.

Sanctions against Russia: Poroshenko told how the US drove Europe to the corner

Sanctions against Russia: Poroshenko told how the US drove Europe to the corner

The signing by US President Donald Trump of the Counter-Americans Adversaries Through Sanctions Act has had a significant impact on world politics.

This is written by the counselor of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Horbulin in his article for the publication "Mirror of the Week".

According to him, abstract statements that "values ​​for us more important than money" will have to be confirmed by the European countries by actions.

"And the problem of finding an annual consensus on the need to preserve sanctions will be the smallest of the problems of European governments," said Poroshenko's adviser.

Gorbulin said that the US's refusal to fully respect the position of the European Union countries would disrupt European leaders, but they can not do anything about it, because "very traumatic changes will be in foreign and domestic politics."

"There is a situation where it is easier for Brussels to adopt the new active role of the United States than to suggest its approach. Even though its approach (besides the abstract" let's live in harmony! ") In Brussels, and with it - in Berlin and Paris, is not observed "- said Gorbulin.

He added that the EU is now more focused on itself and how it will continue to exist.

Merkel warns Turkey against interference in the German elections

German Chancellor warns Erdogan of interventions in the German election, stating that Germany will not allow anyone to interfere in the electoral process

This is reported by Radio Liberty.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of interfering in the upcoming German parliamentary election after calling on German voters of Turkish descent to vote against three leading parties in the country.

"We will not allow anyone, and President Erdogan, too, interfere with the fact that German citizens have the right to vote independently," Merkel said.

In Germany, about three million Turks live by nationality, and about a third of them will have the right to vote in the upcoming parliamentary elections. The parliamentary elections in Germany will be held in September this year.

Recall that relations between Berlin and Ankara worsened after the failed coup attempt in Turkey last year.

After that, mass imprisonment of the Turks, who was charged with cooperation with the preacher Fethullah Gulen, began. His Turkish authorities consider the organizer to attempt a coup. He denies his guilt.

In April 2017 Erdogan held a referendum on the extension of the president's mandate, his proposal was supported by the majority of the Turks, including those living in Germany.

In the same month, Erdogan said he intends to resume the death penalty in the country.

In response, Merkel threatened Turkey with the end of negotiations with the European Union.

August 18 Erdogan called on the Turks in Germany to vote against Merkel.

Mattis visit may affect sanctions against Russia and the situation in the Donbass and Crimea

Mattis visit may affect sanctions against Russia and the situation in the Donbas and Crimea

The meeting of President Petro Poroshenko and Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak with the head of the Pentagon's James Mattis can positively affect the future of anti-Russian sanctions, as well as the situation in the conflict zone in the Donbass and Crimea.

As transfers Zenzor.NET, this was stated by the deputy minister in the occupied territories Georgy Tuk in the commentary "112 Ukraine."

According to Touki, Mattis's visit to Ukraine is of a political nature, but according to her results, we can expect progress in the settlement of the conflict in the Donbass and the return of the Crimea.

"I think so. Proceeding from the fact that it is not the Minister of Agriculture, but the US Secretary of Defense himself, besides, he is a very famous combat officer. I hope that this will lead to the strengthening, on the one hand, of our armed forces and, on the other hand, to pressure from the United States inside our country to those forces that are only interested in business interests and for which the imposition of sanctions on Russia leads To losses, "he said.

He noted that the adoption of quick decisions on the Ukrainian issue after the meeting of Mattis with Poroshenko and Poltorak should not be expected, including in the provision of lethal weapons.

"I do not think that this visit will lead to concrete actions tomorrow, certain agreements will be reached, perhaps they will be implemented with time. I think the general vision of the future development vector will be discussed, "Tuka said.

Russia can not modernize the military-industrial complex and energy because of sanctions

on Sat Aug 19, 2017 7:33 pm
Russia can not modernize the military-industrial complex and energy because of sanctions

Sanctions against Russia, imposed by the United States, the European Union and Ukraine, have a serious negative impact on the Russian economy.

According to Tsenzor.NET , it writes the director of the Institute of Strategic Studies, National Academy of Sciences, President of Ukraine adviser to Vladimir Gorbulin in its submission to ZN.UA.

In his view, the new US sanctions will lead to the gradual collapse of the modern Russian economic model, because they are causing serious damage to the energy sector of the Russian Federation. Russian companies will not be able to enlist the support of US partners in major oil and gas projects and gain access to "long money" investors from the United States.

"The top 10 largest Russian taxpayers are as follows: Rosneft, Gazprom, Lukoil, Surgutneftegaz, Sberbank of Russia, Tatneft, RZD, Rosatom, Bashneft, and Slavneft. Of these, only two companies - Sberbank of Russia and Russian Railways - do not have a direct relationship to oil and gas, but it is very arbitrary, "the author notes.

In addition, he said, Ukraine's break-up of cooperation with Russia in the military-industrial complex is blocking the technical modernization of the Russian defense industry. "Russia has still not managed to establish at least 185 unique parts and components produced by Ukrainian enterprises ... By the most cautious estimates, almost 30% of the components supplied by the Ukrainian military-industrial complex are unique, and so far Russia has not been able to find a replacement for them ... The abstract 30% is actually quite specific 51% of all Russian intercontinental ballistic missiles carrying 82% of all nuclear warheads in the arsenal of the RF Armed Forces. "Yuzhmash", Kharkiv "Hartron", Kosmotrans, Kiev "Arsenal" "Artem" Zaporozhye "Motor Sich".

According to him, the technological backwardness and the lack of independence of Russia are noticeable not only in the military-industrial complex, but also in other spheres, as demonstrated by the scandal with Siemens turbines that Russia had to import from abroad under "gray" schemes.

In 3 years of hostilities by the Russian Federation on the Donbas, at least 2.5 thousand civilians in Ukraine were killed

According to the UN, during almost three years of hostilities of the Russian Federation on the Donbas, at least 2.5 thousand civilians in Ukraine were killed, 7-9 thousand injured

This is stated in the  statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine  to the International Day of Humanitarian Aid.

Only in the first half of this year more than 400 civilians became victims of hostilities, 60% more than during the same period in 2016.

Continued violations of the cease-fire regime, the presence of significant mined areas threatens the lives of nearly 800,000 Ukrainians living near the collision line.

Almost 1.6 million citizens - or about 4% of the total Ukrainian population - were forced to leave their homes and became internally displaced persons. According to the UN, more than 3.8 million of our citizens on both sides of the line of contact need humanitarian assistance.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed its deep appreciation for the great help provided by UN system organizations, the International Committee of the Red Cross, partner countries and international non-governmental organizations to address humanitarian problems in the occupied territories.

The ministry also called on donor countries to intensify their efforts to mobilize the financial resources needed to implement the UN Humanitarian Response Plan in Ukraine in 2017.

As it was reported earlier, the  International Committee of the Red Cross in Ukraine reported that more than 2700 civilians were killed on the Donbas since the beginning of hostilities.
