"Russia has forces in eastern Ukraine and it needs to pull them out" - Volker

on Mon Aug 28, 2017 9:26 am
"Russia has forces in eastern Ukraine and it needs to pull them out" - Volker

Russia must withdraw its military from the Donbas.

This was stated by U.S. special representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker, Censor.NET reports citing Financial Times.

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.

"A situation where Russia is going to be frozen out of diplomatic relationships, of economic relationships, because of this, is certainly not something that Russia would want. I think they have got to make their own choice, their own calculations," Volker stressed.

Citing discussions with Ukrainian, European and Russian officials, he said all agreed that the Minsk process was "not going anywhere". The US was trying to "give an impetus to the process", he said.

But he put the onus for breaking the deadlock on Moscow, adding: "Russia has forces in eastern Ukraine and it needs to pull them out."

New York Times Kofman, agitating against giving weapons to Ukraine, turned out to be a member of the Valdai Kremlin Club, telling about the Russian Federation's good for the US

on Mon Aug 28, 2017 11:33 am
New York Times Kofman, agitating against giving weapons to Ukraine, turned out to be a member of the Valdai Kremlin Club, telling about the Russian Federation's good for the US



The New York Times published a column of authorship by Michael Kofman about Ukraine's prospects of obtaining lethal weapons from the United States. The journalists tried to find out what kind of new expert the influential American edition is.

NYT calls Kofman a global affairs specialist at Wilson's center and a freelancer at the Modern War Institute. In his article, the expert writes that the Donald Trump administration's plan to arm Ukraine is a serious political decision that can have far-reaching strategic consequences and is of concern. US thus go to indirect war with Russia, and in this war, Washington is not ready to win, said Kofman. Tsenzor.NET with reference to LigaBusinessInform.

He also writes that the proposal to send weapons to Ukraine is untimely, because Ukraine "has not lost a significant territory" over the past two years, and Russia has not committed a full-scale invasion.

This is already the second material of NYT about Ukraine lately. In mid-August, the publication published information on alleged supplies from Ukraine to the DPRK of engines for missiles. The authors of the "rocket" article - William Broad and David Sanger - referred to a senior researcher at the International Institute for Strategic Studies Michael Elleman. The next day it became known that Elleman's wife was probably Russian and that he was raising a son named Nikita. And one of the authors, David Sanger, in his time was responsible for the publication of Wikileaks materials.

Michael Elleman does not have a Russian wife and the release of Wikileaks plums in his track record. But he has his own page on the portal of the Valdai Club. Valdai is a so-called discussion club initiated by the Kremlin, which meets annually since 2004 in Nizhny Novgorod. In addition to the Kremlin elite, which meets there regularly, the club is visited by such topical politicians today as former Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi and ex-head of the French government Dominique de Villepin.

There is one article by Kofman on the pageAbout the war in Syria and the participation of the aggressor country in this war. In an article dated December 15 last year, there is not a word about the brutality with which Russia acts in this conflict and about the alternate accuracy of Russian aviation, which bombs not so much the IS as the Syrian opposition. But there is, for example, such a phrase:"... Russia should not have held a concert in Palmyra for propaganda purposes, realizing that in the conditions of war the situation is dramatically changing, and the advertised successes can put in a very uncomfortable position."

By the way, in the article for NYT Kofman compares the provision of lethal weapons to Ukraine with the arming of the Syrian opposition. In the case of Syria, the plan was ill-conceived and ended with the defeat of the opposition when Russia got involved in the war in 2015 and supported the regime of Bashar Assad, he writes.

A superficial search at Google gives other interesting publications by Michael Kofman, some of them already deleted. But the discussion of the materials was not deleted, which makes it possible for Google to remind them of them. In one of them, Kofman argues that "the number of Russian tanks in Ukraine is very high."

There are others. In 2015, Kofman gave an interview to Novoye Vremya, Where he expressed confidence that Ukraine will not win the war with Russia. And he said the following: "The real problem in Ukraine is that no one - neither Poroshenko nor Yatseniuk - wants to sign this agreement on compromise with Russia." They do not want to understand what happened and give some political status to these militiamen. Very afraid of the people, the third Maidan. "

Correspondent in the same year, Kofman said that Ukraine should not spend money on the modernization of its air force and navy."... Is it not better to send money to combat units? You have to finance only real soldiers and significantly reduce the number of senior commanders who exist in the army without a definite goal," the global expert says. There is no more publication on the Correspondent's website,Reprints with the indication of the publication.

In 2016, Kofman's column with the didactic title "How to Hold Russia" was published on the Russian Lente.ru. In it the author writes the following:"... all the scenarios of the Russian invasion of the Baltic States have one drawback: none of them explains why it would be generally necessary for Russians." In fact - the invasion of Georgia and Ukraine in a big way did not give Russia anything. In addition to new territories.

If you start the search in the English segment of Google, the second page pops up this comment: "The United States is interested in separating Ukraine (the conflict issue - Ed.) From other bilateral interests or points of interaction with Russia." Kofman's note deals with a nuclear deal with Iran, and he already in the first sentence writes about the benefits that the United States brought Russia in this situation.

There is also an article on the Wilson center portal, in which Kofman veiledly denied that Russia was generally responsible for unleashing a military conflict in Ukraine:"... the" hybrid war "is more a label that the West is hanging on Russia's actions in Ukraine in an attempt to explain the avalanche A security crisis in which all parties except Russia lost their balance."

"Thus, Kofman says not stopping since 2014 about the futility of rendering military assistance to Ukraine and the perniciousness of strengthening and reforming the army by Ukraine itself. It is very likely that the next publication in the NYT is part of an information campaign against Ukraine that, in fact, has never stopped, including using Western sites, "the publication concludes.

censor.net.ua , Original in Russian / На русском  

This article shows a great example of the deluge of Kremlin paid propaganda that's been increasing within the United States recently.  There has been talk about US security administrations starting projects on stopping Kremlin propaganda.  And you better believe, I'll be passing every bit of information along with names and passing it on.  We must protect our country from this scourge.  I'll pass on contacts to organizations that will be working on this.

As for #Ukraine!  For those who know its history, there was a popular journalist called Walter Duranty that wrote in the press that Stalin wasn't starving Ukrainians to take their fields and land.  Yes!  He was paid by the Kremlin to do so.  It seems Putin's practicing the same again, with the like of Michael Kofman and Michael Elleman.  And they aren't the only Kremlin paid prostitutes in the US, along with a few in Europe that many of us know of.  

It amazes me that it's mentioned Russia hasn't taken land, either in Georgia or Ukraine.  Obviously this putz doesn't know about Ossetia and Abkhazia in Georgia. Shows a lack of intelligence.  And ALSO!  Putin used the excuse that Russians in eastern Ukraine were being persecuted.  That is total bullshit.  If Kofman had the intelligence to know that since the mid 2000's, every poll made till 2014 showed that 59% of Russians in eastern Ukraine  didn't want to be a part of Russia. They wanted to be independent of Russia. He probably doesn't even know about the Zumkov polls.  Shows how much of a rookie he is.  

He also states "Washington is not ready to win" a war with Russia? Has he EVER compared their military capabilities? Where in hell did New York Times and The Wilson Center find this loser? that doesn't do his own research, obviously.  He also states, "has not lost a significant territory". Seems he hasn't spent much time since this started to know what they've lost till recently.  Does he know what happened in Debaltseve and other areas near Mariupol?  New York Times is losing money having this scumbag on.  

Then you have Michael Elleman who belongs to Valdai Club, a so-called discussion club initiated by the Kremlin that meets annually.  How much more do you need to show deep Kremlin connections?  Here's his wife from his own page.




These two scum of the earth Kremlin paid propagandists prostitutes will probably meet their maker, once the Kremlin decides they're not doing a good job and being snuffed out AND know too much. Let them take the chance. It'll be a day to celebrate another Kremlin failure.

Anyone that has any other articles these wannabe's have bashed Ukraine on, please forward them to me at @discjocke52 Twitter. I'll definitely pass it on the the proper authorities. Their press pass won't save them, when they're charged with treason. Their family will love that.

And I also call to boycott the New York Times, The Economist, The Wilson Center and Kennan Institute for giving the Kremlin a platform. THEY'RE just as guilty with treasonous publishing of Kremlin propaganda. May they all rot in hell.

Volker on lethal defensive aid for Ukraine: "It has to be a decision from the president"

The Trump administration is considering whether to provide the defensive weapons that Ukraine has long requested to help deter and protect itself against further Russian aggression.

This was announced by U.S. special representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker, Censor.NET reports citing Financial Times.

"[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. Of course, it has to be a decision from the president," he said.

"[There] is perhaps a growing sense that the conflict itself is actually getting worse and that it is going to continue to get worse unless we do something," Volker added.

As for the prospect of the Russian-American relations, Volker stressed that "the relationship between Russia and the US is important, and it's going to be crippled by this problem in Ukraine."

If our film about the Maidan, shot on a camera, is nominated for an Oscar

If our film about the Maidan, shot on a camera, is nominated for an Oscar

In the selection for the nomination of the film from Ukraine for the "Oscar" this year will be attended by eight films, one of which - "War of Chimeras" of Mary and Anastasia Starozhitsky.

About the festival and rolling fate of the tape and the short list of the nomination for an Oscar from Ukraine, as well as the idea of ​​creating the next film, the creator of the Chimera Wars was told on the air of the Gromadsky radio, Tsenzor reports.

"This is one of the episodes of the future film.The idea is very simple: to tell you what it really was.This was that Nastya and I went with a camera from that summer to Maidan.We essentially came up with (probably something was already brewing and We felt it somehow) that these chimeras break down from the House with chimeras, they feel hatred for power - the concrete pores are overwhelmed with the sensations of people. "Such a little mystical thing was the original idea." Then the Maidan started, and all this was in fact. From what was filmed, they tried to tell , Leave to yourself the memory of what happened to us and the feelings that we experienced: Nastya, Valery, I. And we did it, we released the film, and now we have the opportunity to return to the original idea and try to talk about what we witnessed these Years. We are very important in this context the history of the bright and peaceful Maidan. When they came and supported each other, they were sure that people are the force that can dictate something in this world. Even before the shooting, to all - an incredible sense of unity. We want to fix it somehow for the future, "explained the concept of the film" Chimera War "by Maria Starozhitskaya.

"During the Maidan we lived in the Mikhailovsky Sich, it was a separate barricade of the Maidan near the St. Michael's Cathedral, and from that moment on it has already begun to take place The history of the war of chimeras, which later resulted in the film "Chimera War." This memory of the Maidan will form the basis of the next film, "Anastasia Starozhitskaya added.

"We are really new to this film world and we are very much interested in the success of the" Chimera War", so that they believe in us to invest money." We could do this film without them, but the second time we will not get such a "trick." The Oscar secretary Committee, said to apply, and we did it with great joy and inspiration, now it is very important that the film is evaluated by those who watch it.We already encountered comments: I did not watch, but did not approve (or approve). Yes, the film is made for amateurs And on the camera on the button machine.This would of course be a precedent in the history of the Oscar.But the film's director Anastasia Starozhitskaya, one of the operators Valery Lavrenov showed civil courage, having told a very personal story. They told her honestly and carried it to the big screen. The film is dedicated to the deceased friend, the twin brother of Vadim Antonov. We personally knew him, he also left Maidan to the front. Therefore, it is very important for us to see this history in the world. To feel, with what mood volunteers went to war, with what they came from it. That's why this is not the story of the Ilovaisky battle - we took another period more than a year after it, showed a return and a new trip to the war. This is really our confession about the war. And "Oscar" is important to us, because it is an opportunity that people will hear about the film and look at this confession, "Maria Starozhitskaya summed up.

The US does not disclose available evidence of participation of Russian "Buk" on the MH-17 - Ambassador to Russian Federation Tefft

on Mon Aug 28, 2017 4:31 pm
The US does not disclose available evidence of participation of Russian "Buk" on the MH-17 - Ambassador to Russian Federation Tefft

The United States does not disclose the available evidence that Malaysian Boeing was shot down in the Donetsk region of Ukraine in the east of the territory controlled by the separatists in July 2014, as US intelligence agencies are interested in securing their sources of information.

According to the Russian ambassador to Russia John Tefft, as the Tsensorz.NET reports, in an interview with the radio station "Echo of Moscow".

"There are sources and methods that they will not tell (chiefs of special services), and it seems to me that any special service will not talk about it. Once you disclose, you can endanger the source of information, and no one will be there." And Russians will not do that, "he said.

D. Tefft drew attention to the fact that the secret services provided evidence in the Senate and the House, and Congressmen consider them persuasive.

"Evidence was presented to representatives of the US people, both in the Senate and in the House, and practically unanimously voted for sanctions. No one raised the question." I know from my colleagues that evidence is convincing, "he said.

D. Tefft reminded that the investigation into the Dutch commission also confirmed that the airliner was shot down from the Buk missile system, which Russia provided to the separatists.

"It seems to me that the Dutch authorities and their investigation very clearly made it clear. There is a video, I do not remember which website was posted, where it is clear that exactly the Russian installation crossed the territory and then went back and This one of the missiles was missing, "the ambassador said.

Recall that the plane MH-17 Amsterdam - Kuala Lumpur was shot down in the sky over the occupied Donbas on July 17, 2014. There were 298 civilians on board - 283 passengers and 15 crew members. They all died.

Last autumn, the International Investigation Team (JIT) presented the findings that Malaysian "Boeing" was hit by a "ground-air" missile from the "Buk" installation that fired from the area of ​​the Donbas town of Snignee (at that time under the control of the "DPR" ) The investigative group is represented by five countries: Malaysia, the Netherlands, Belgium, Australia, Ukraine. Russia refused to participate in the joint investigation of the group.

Ukraine is surrounded: the Russian opposition estimated the threat of military exercises of Putin in Belarus

Ukraine is almost completely surrounded by Russian troops and this threat will intensify after the start of the "West-2017" exercises in Belarus, but it's too expensive to start a full-scale offensive of Russia.

This was told by former State Duma deputy, oppositionist Konstantin Borovoi, the politeka.net newspaper reports.

"Ukraine is already surrounded, there is a high concentration of troops on the border with Ukraine on the Russian side, experts say, these offensive troops are now performing the function of threat, especially since Ukraine in essence is not defending itself, does not fight for freedom from these bandit formations in the East Of the country, this threat will always be, "the politician noted.

However, conducting an offensive operation will cost the Russian budget very dearly, which significantly reduces the likelihood of subsequent aggression.

As Apostrophe reported, since August 25, when the so-called "school truce" was announced in the Donbas , the regime of "silence" was violated more than 600 times.
