The head of the Pentagon brought military equipment to the Army of Ukraine - US Special Envoy

During his visit to Ukraine on August 23-24, US Defense Secretary James Mattheys brought military equipment to the Ukrainian Army.

This was stated by the Special Representative of the US State Department for Ukraine Kurt Volker in an interview with "Direct" TV channel, reports Interfax-Ukraine.

"Defense ministers do not come empty-handed. Mettis brought some defensive equipment to the Ukrainian Army, "he said.

At the same time, the special representative noted that the United States will never recognize the annexation of the Crimea, and the restoration of Ukraine's sovereignty should take place through security systems in Ukraine.

"In Kiev, now we have to talk about how people living in eastern Ukraine should live, now it's a very dramatic story," said the US Special Representative.

Russian journalist's forecast of Putin's overthrow and NATO tanks in Moscow

Russian journalist's forecast of Putin's overthrow and NATO tanks in Moscow

Users of social networks have roused the forecast of the famous Russian journalist Arkady Babchenko, who now lives outside of the Russian Federation, about the introduction of NATO tanks in Moscow.

His post collected more than three thousand keynotes and more than two hundred comments.

"How after the collapse of the shovel, when all the progressive Soviet humanity was divided into two halves: the first, scratching their eyes, did not really know how it was actually and truly believed in the idea, and the other half - conspiringly smiling, told that it was Stirlitz and pushed the regime From the inside", - commented Babchenko's famous painter Igor Ponochovny.

In turn, the deputy general director of the first Crimean Tatar TV channel "ATR" Ayer Mudzhabayev made an important clarification to Babchenko's words.

Earlier, Arkady Babchenko spoke about the terrible fall of morale in Russian military and the transformation of the army from the symbol of defense into a symbol of a betrayal war.

In Russia, "Trump" took on a leash and put on their knees

Users of social networks responded mixedly to the performance performed by the ex-mayor of Arkhangelsk Alexander Donskoy on the streets of St. Petersburg in Russia.

The Ukrainian political scientist Oleksiy Holobutsky has posted a video on his Facebook page.



The video shows that the ex-mayor is holding on the leash a man who has been shot up under US President Donald Trump.

Donsky behaves with "Trump" as if he is a domestic dog: holds him on the leash and gives commands.

"Still do not get so shy about the budget penny! She is now under the sanction, dear! And you run a dog and you will lay down your boots... Great Russian spirituality... her, spirituality! What will you say..." - the author of the publication noted.

Former deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, oppositionist Konstantin Borovyi did not see a firm
decision in Ukraine on whether to return the occupied Crimea.

He announced this in an interview with the publication of Politeka .

And then, Borovy says, it is necessary to begin active diplomatic work.

He also noted that he met with leaders of civic organizations engaged in the blockade of the Crimea.

"Then he was in Moscow and the United States, he heard how the SBU says it's all FSB. It seems that they want to harm Ukraine, these are public. That this blockade of Crimea is not beneficial for Ukraine," Borovy says.

"Therefore, it is first necessary to make a decision and then act. It is a matter for diplomats and military - how to act, in what sequence," he added.

As reported by the "Apostrophe", Konstantin Borovyi said that in the near future Vladimir Putin will not declare the name of his successor.

Sanctions are very effective: Russia has explained what Putin's defense spending is reducing

Sanctions are very effective: Russia has explained what Putin's defense spending is reducing

An ex-deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, oppositional Konstantin Borovyi, believes that the statement of Russian President Vladimir Putin on the reduction of defense spending in 2018 shows the effectiveness of the sanctions of the West.

He announced this in an interview with the publication of Politeka.

"It shows that sanctions are very effective, and the structure of the economy is such that it does not allow to experiment with provocations in the region. It's simply not worth the money," Borovy said, adding that the reduction will be after the presidential election in the Russian Federation.

He noted that the Russians would react to possible budget cuts in the social sphere as propaganda inspires them.

"Propaganda says Russia is the best country in the world, surrounded by enemies who want to harm it in many ways, and that the seizure of the Crimea is an attempt to fight the Americans who were about to make a military base against Russia," the oppositionist said.

Ukraine crisis will ‘cripple’ Russia-US relations, envoy warns

Ukraine crisis will ‘cripple’ Russia-US relations, envoy warns

Kurt Volker also confirms Washington is ‘seriously considering’ arming Kiev



US-Russian relations will be “crippled” unless a solution is found to the Ukraine crisis, the newly appointed US envoy on the country has warned, dashing any hopes Moscow may still harbour for rapprochement under Donald Trump’s presidency.

Kurt Volker also confirmed to the Financial Times that the US administration was “seriously considering” whether to change its position and deliver lethal weapons to Ukraine.

His comments in Kiev came after Jim Mattis, US defence secretary, last week spoke in favour of arming Ukraine as he stood alongside president Petro Poroshenko on the 26th anniversary of the country’s independence from the Soviet Union.

“The relationship between Russia and the US is important, and it’s going to be crippled by this problem in Ukraine,” Mr Volker said.

He warned that Russia was “going to have to make some fundamental decisions” on whether to comply with the Minsk accord aimed at bringing peace to east Ukraine and pull its forces out of the region.

Washington was also considering whether to provide the defensive weapons that Ukraine has long requested to help deter and protect itself against further Russian aggression, something former US president Barack Obama opposed.

“[What] the Trump administration now is looking at [is] do we continue this rejection from the Obama administration, or do we change? There isn’t any new decision yet, but at very senior levels people are taking that very seriously,” Mr Volker said. “Of course, it has to be a decision from the president.”

Mr Volker’s comments will not be welcomed in Moscow, which believed Mr Trump’s election last year could bring an improvement in relations with Washington.

The Kremlin had hoped the Trump administration would take a more accommodating stance over Ukraine or put the issue on the backburner.

Instead, Mr Volker said Washington was concerned that Ukraine had “slipped off the front pages” and the Trump administration — along with Germany and the Macron administration in Paris — was “raising the issue back up”.......................

If Russia does certain things, sanctions could be lifted gradually, - Foreign Minister of Germany, Sigmar Gabriel

If Russia does certain things, sanctions could be lifted gradually, - Foreign Minister of Germany, Sigmar Gabriel



Foreign Minister of Germany, Sigmar Gabriel, continues to consider the correct phasing-out of sanctions against Russia as it fulfills the conditions of the Minsk treaties.

This is reported by Tsensor. NET with reference to Ukrinform.

"If sanctions were gradually introduced, why can not they be lifted gradually? If Russia does certain things," said Gabriel.

Gabriel, in his acknowledgment, "strongly sympathizes" with the agreement concluded by the EU Heads of State and Government that all sanctions will be lifted only after the full implementation of the Minsk Agreements, when everything is settled between Ukraine and Russia. "I think it's unrealistic. It would be wiser to be prepared to set up this armistice (as the first clause of the agreements) and withdraw weapons to lift the first part of the sanctions, then look at what else can be done and removed," he explained. The position of the German minister.

He underlined that this has nothing to do with the Crimea and the sanctions imposed in connection with the annexation of the peninsula. "We can not justify military intervention and appropriation of a neighboring state," the vice-chancellor said firmly.

Statement by the leader of the Free Democratic Party of Germany, Christian Lindner, that the problem of Crimea should be postponed to solve urgent problems, he considers inspired by the electoral company.

However, according to Gabriel, it was actually about the other: about reaching a truce in eastern Ukraine. If it fails, pressure must be strengthened, because people are killed every day, "he said, stressing that in the context of winter's approach, care should be taken to stop the gun and to begin rebuilding, including with the help of Germany. "This must be said, and not about what to do with the Crimea", - said the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany.
