First batch of American coal sent to Ukraine

First batch of American coal sent to Ukraine

Ambassador of Ukraine to the United States Valerii Chalyi has attended the ceremony of dispatching American thermal coal to Ukraine's Tsentrenerho JSC in the seaport of Baltimore, Maryland.

Censor.NET reports referring to a message by the Embassy of Ukraine in the U.S. on Facebook.

"The American side at the event was represented by Deputy Chief of Staff to the Secretary of Commerce Israel Hernandez, Acting Assistant Secretary for International Affairs at the U.S. Department of Energy Wells Griffith and the management of XCoal," the message says.

The dispatch is effected under a contract between the Ukrainian state company Tsentrenerho and the U.S. company XCoal Energy and Resources signed as part of agreements reached between the U.S. administration and President Petro Poroshenko during his visit to Washington on June 20.

Restrictions imposed by Russia on vessels because of the Kerch bridge, are contrary to the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea

on Tue Aug 22, 2017 11:27 am
Restrictions imposed by Russia on vessels because of the Kerch bridge, are contrary to the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea

Because of the construction of the arch of the Kerch bridge, Russia establishes restrictions for passing ships to Ukrainian ports in the Azov Sea, which contradicts the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.

This is reported by Censor.NET with reference to the press service of the Ministry for Temporary Occupied Territories and internally displaced persons of Ukraine.

The arch height, according to the Russian project, will have a limit of 33 meters above sea level. In addition, if earlier the passage of the Kerch Strait was allowed to vessels up to 200 meters in length, now Russia claims to limit the permitted length of 160 meters.

According to the information of Mariupol port, at least 144 vessels that entered the port during the past year do not correspond to the new requirements to the size of the ships, which is 23 percent of the total. It is these vessels that account for 43 percent of the port's cargo handling.

The established restrictions will lead to the fact that only ships with a relatively lower total payload capacity (10,000 tons) will be able to enter the Mariupol seaport. This, in turn, will affect the competitiveness of the port, since such ships can transport goods within the Black and Mediterranean Seas. To other continents - to Asia, Africa and to American countries, transportation is carried out by vessels of ocean classes. As the vessel is larger in size, it is possible to reduce the cost of sea transportation per ton of cargo, the message says.



According to Article 44 of the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, "States bordering the straits should not interfere with the transit passage and should notify accordingly of any danger they are aware of for navigation in the strait or overflight." There should be no termination of the transit passage ".

The head of the Ukrainian state noted that "information war is the key element of Russian aggression".

Turchynov: The New York Times article seeks to disguise Russia's possible participation in North Korean missile programs

on Tue Aug 22, 2017 1:45 pm
Turchynov: The New York Times article seeks to disguise Russia's possible participation in North Korean missile programs

The Kremlin actively uses the manipulation of public consciousness as one of the methods of information war against Ukraine.

This is stated in a report by the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov, head of the working group on the verification of information set forth in the NYT article of Aug. 14, Censor.NET reports.

"Russia has long been implementing a hostile policy against Ukraine, resulting in the annexation of Crimea and occupation of part of the eastern regions of Ukraine. Today, Russia's aggression against Ukraine is carried out in the form of a hybrid war, during which Russia, in addition to military operations, uses carefully planned information provocations, seeking to consistently discredit Ukraine as a reliable and predictable partner, in particular, in such sensitive areas as military and technical cooperation," the report says.

According to Turchynov, such provocations are intended among other things to manipulate public consciousness with the aim of camouflaging Russia's active participation in many destructive campaigns.

"In this context, the working group sees the NYT article of Aug. 14, 2017 as an element of information cover and distraction of the attention of the world community from Russia's alleged participation in the implementation of North Korean missile programs," the NSDC secretary sums up.

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 has always complied with its international obligations, so the state defense and airspace industries have never delivered weapons and military technologies to North Korea.

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

The delay is only due to the fact that the Russian president refuses to publicly support the armistice, and therefore from direct orders to the Russian military and militants who are present in the occupied territory, to stop shooting", - he said.

"This time it is very important that a joint appeal is issued (the leaders of the Norman format countries), including the Russian president, to a joint and sustained cease-fire." I emphasize that this appeal must be made publicly", - added Poroshenko.

Earlier, during the negotiations of the Tripartite Contact Group (TAG) on the settlement of the situation in the Donbass, a decision was taken ona ceasefire with June 24 to August 31.

"The calculation is obvious - to try to provoke discontent of Russian citizens," - the Russian Foreign Ministry on the decision of the US on visa procedures

"While, for example, 16 Italian consular officers processed 478,000 visa requests last year, and 5 of their Spanish colleagues diplomats issued 877,000 visas to Russians, at times the greater number of US consulates could only" overpower "about 186 Thousand, "- pointed out in the Russian ministry.

On Monday, the US Embassy in Russia announced that "in connection with the measures taken by the Russian Federation to limit the number of employees of the US diplomatic mission in Russia, starting from August 23, 2017, the procedure for issuing nonimmigrant visas across Russia will be suspended." At the same time, as noted, since September 1, "the procedure for issuing nonimmigrant visas will be renewed, but in a significantly reduced amount." In addition, as stated in the embassy, ​​"changes in the number of employees of the US embassy will also affect the schedule of registration of a number of immigrant visas."

Read on "Censor.NET": Over the past two years, the harassment and surveillance of our diplomats in Moscow by the Russian special services has increased significantly. - The US State Department.

on July 28, the Russian Foreign Ministry demanded until September 1 to reduce the number of diplomatic and technical staff of the US Embassy in Moscow and In the consulates in St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok to 455 people. In addition, since August 1, the US Embassy in Moscow is forbidden to use the dacha in the Silver Forest and warehouses on Dorognaya Street in Moscow.

US State Department did not specify how many diplomats will have to leave the Russian Federation, but according to The Washington Post, it is about several hundred people.

Moscow's decision came after the US Senate voted overwhelmingly for an updated package of restrictive penal measures against Russia, Iran and North Korea.

Russia prepping for "big war" with West – Ukraine NSDC secretary

on Tue Aug 22, 2017 10:54 pm
Russia prepping for "big war" with West – Ukraine NSDC secretary

Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov says that with the Russian-Belarusian joint military exercise "Zapad -2017" (West-2017) the Kremlin will test ground regarding the general readiness of its armed forces and the nation as a whole for a "big war" with the West.

"It's not only the Russian armed forces who are preparing for the war but the entire Russian state, along wit the corresponding expenditures of material and other types of resources. Thus, the Kremlin during the Russian-Belarusian joint military exercises Zapad -2017 is testing ground on how its armed forces and the nation as a whole are ready for a "big war" with the West," the NSDC's press service quoted Turchynov.
