US authorities are looking for a Russian trading representative in Washington

US authorities are looking for a Russian trading representative in Washington



The Russian Foreign Ministry issued a protest note for US intentions to search for a diplomatic mission

Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia handed over to the advisor-envoy of the US Embassy in Moscow Anthony Godfrey a protest note "in connection with the intention of the American authorities to arrange a search at the Moscow Trade Mission in Washington." This is reported by the Russian Foreign Ministry.

"On September 2, an advisor-envoy to the US Embassy in Moscow, Godfrey, was summoned to the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He was given a note of protest in connection with the intention of the American authorities to arrange a search at the Russian Trade Mission in Washington, which today is denied access to us, although this building is in Russian state ownership and has diplomatic immunity, "the document states.

The note emphasizes that the RF Ministry of Foreign Affairs considers "the planned unlawful review of the diplomatic premises of Russia without the presence of Russian officials and the expressed threat to break the front door as an unprecedented, aggressive action, which, moreover, can be used by US secret services to organize anti-Russian provocations with the help of thrown compromising objects»

In the Russian department insist that the US authorities should stop "gross violation of international law and refuse to attack the immunity of the diplomatic institutions of Russia." Otherwise, Russia reserves the right to take appropriate measures on the basis of reciprocity.

Russia can't believe: General of the US Army criticized the training "West-2017"

on Sat Sep 02, 2017 12:39 pm
Russia can't believe: General of the US Army criticized the training "West-2017"

Ben Hodges, commander of the United States Land Force in Europe, said he had no reason to believe information on the scale of the military exercises "West 2017" provided by Russia.

Delfi reports.

"The Russians have not given us serious reasons to believe the figures they are talking about. Moscow reports that fewer than 13,000 troops will be involved in exercises, but NATO officials say that this figure is artificially understated," Hodges said.

According to him, Russia broke the doctrine into separate parts to avoid the obligation to invite observers.

At the same time, the US Army General noted that Moscow could dispel anxiety if it invited journalists to observe training, as the US and EU countries do.

Hodges also stressed that he was firmly convinced by the deterrent forces of NATO in the region, but added that the Alliance should remain vigilant.

Recall that the Russian-Belarusian military exercises West-2017 will be held from 14 to 20 September. They will be the final stage in the joint training of the armed forces of Belarus and Russia in 2017. It is planned to attract up to 13 thousand servicemen and about 700 units of military equipment to participate in them.

As reported by "Obozrevatel", previously in the General Staff told about serious military threats from the side of Belarus.

Russia sent a note of protest because of the planned "illegitimate" inspection of the trade mission in Washington

on Sat Sep 02, 2017 12:51 pm
Russia sent a note of protest because of the planned "illegitimate" inspection of the trade mission in Washington

The Russian Foreign Ministry handed a note of protest to the US Embassy adviser in Moscow in connection with "the plans of the US government to conduct a search of the Russian Trade Mission in Washington."

This is stated in the official statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, informs the Censor.

"The adviser-envoy of the US Embassy in Moscow, E. Godfrey, was summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry on September 2. He received a note of protest in connection with the intention of the US authorities to search the Trade Representation of the Russian Federation in Washington, where we are no longer allowed access, although this building is in Russian state property and enjoys diplomatic immunity, "the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said that "they will consider the planned illegitimate inspection of diplomatic premises in Russia without the presence of Russian officials and the expressed threat to break the front door as an unprecedented, aggressive action that can also be used by US special services to organize anti-Russian provocations with the help of thrown discreditable objects".

On Thursday, August 31, it was announced that the US had decided to close the Russian consulate in San Francisco and two consular sites in Washington and New York.

August 28, 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 diplomatic mission will also affect the schedule of registration of a number of immigrant visas."

The 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 a few hundred people.

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 the consulates in St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok to 455 people. In addition, since August 1, the US Embassy in Moscow is prohibited from using the dacha in the Serebryany Bor and warehouses on Dorognaya Street in Moscow.

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

Recall that in December last year, the former US authorities decided to send 35 Russian diplomats, as well as members of their families from the country. In addition, the Obama administration imposed a ban on visiting Russian diplomats several dipobektov.

A new prediction about US lethal weapons for Ukraine

on Sat Sep 02, 2017 1:06 pm
A new prediction about US lethal weapons for Ukraine

The tough position of the United States in determining the status of the occupied regions of the Donbas and the Crimea may lead to the commencement of supplies of lethal weapons to the Armed Forces.

This was stated in an interview with "Apostrophe" by a military expert and blogger Oleksiy Arestovich.

According to the expert, the United States took a firmer and clear position regarding the occupation of the Donbas and the Crimea than the countries of Europe.

The concerted action of the United States and Ukraine in this matter may lead to the coup d'état of the international situation around the occupation of the Crimea and the Donbas, and the recognition of Russia as an aggressor country.

An important role in this can be played by a law in which Russia will be recognized as an aggressor, which will allow the United States to provide more substantial military assistance to Ukraine.

"After such jokes, for example, you can safely give a lethal weapon to defend against an aggressor. To give a lethal weapon for defense from an intermediary is somehow strange, but from an aggressor it is quite possible," Arrestovich summed up.

Crimea and Donbas hit the boomerang on Russia: statement of the American military

on Sat Sep 02, 2017 1:45 pm
Crimea and Donbas hit the boomerang on Russia: statement of the American military

Former Chief of Staff of the NATO Military Liaison Mission in Moscow, Harry Tabach, said that the seizure of Crimea and Donbas would still seriously hurt Russia.

This is reported by Obozrevatel, quoting Captain Harry Tabacha of the 1st rank:

"When Islamists attacked America on September 11, they said they did not want to see" wrongdoers "on their land. What happened then? The United States introduced troops to Afghanistan and Iraq, their aggression had a reciprocal effect, and Crimea would still work against Russia. And Donbass This is a boomerang effect, "said the captain.

Also, Tabach added that it is difficult to name Vladimir Putin as a master of geopolitics, since he is an ordinary "KGB" officer:

"In fact, he is a simple kidbyshnik, and he uses the standard methods of medicine. Put me in the head of the country - you will have a barrack, Trump is at the head of the country - you will have a business empire," he said.

US political scientist confuses propagandists on Russian TV with his trolling of Putin

on Sat Sep 02, 2017 1:59 pm
US political scientist confuses propagandists on Russian TV with his trolling of Putin

The network is actively discussing the appeal of the American political scientist Peter Zalmayev to the Russian President Vladimir Putin, which turned out to be trolling.

The appropriate video has been posted on YouTube.

So, the political scientist noted that the Russian Federation, having annexed the Crimea, lost Ukraine, and now the Kremlin is trying to regain its influence on the "fraternal people" through the "hearts and minds" of citizens.

"Volodymyr Volodymyrovych, you once called the collapse of the Soviet Union the main geopolitical tragedy of the 20th century, and I have to ask you accordingly: is it not time to go so clearly established historic imperatives and restore justice at its historical borders? And while you notice , we do not touch Ukraine... The first in the queue should be Belarus ... Then Moldova ... Caucasus and, of course, the Central Asian khanates ... After that the Baltic States themselves will climb on their knees.. Will NATO be ready to defend Estonia, of course, no,"- said he.

The political scientist added that the second step should be the restoration of Russia's hegemony over the former satellite countries of the USSR in central Europe, up to eastern Germany.

"Perhaps, we will have to divide Mongolia with China.." - continued Zalmaev's trolling.



It is worth noting that propagandists of the Russian Federation were puzzled by such a speech by a political scientist, to which network users already reacted.

In Ukraine they were told what would happen if Russia enters 20,000 troops in the Donbas

The military expert, Alexey Arestovich, explained what would happen if the Russian Federation enters 20,000 troops to the east of Ukraine.

He said this in an interview with the "Apostrophe".

"Donbass can not do anything seriously without the introduction of 20,000 Russian troops, and this introduction will be immediately tracked and will end very badly for the Russian Federation." Immediately, all the more so are waiting - in America, and I think [Emmanuel] Macron, too - that they would enter Russian troops, but they will not be introduced, "Arrestovich said.

He added that the Kremlin can do a lot in Belarus, creating a threat directly to the EU borders, which means a completely different schedule.

The leader of the Union of Cossacks of the Oblast of the Donskoy (IC ATS), a terrorist Mykola Kozitsyn, said that the leader of the so-called LNR Igor Plotnytskyy is involved in the plunder of the inhabitants of the occupied territories of the Donbas.



"On the ground, Plotnitsky's power plunders people. It comes up with its own configurations, how to take away coal, apartments, private property, wake up in the end, they are mocking you." This is all illegal, it's all a gang that has broken into power, "Kozitsyn said.

Recall that Kositsyn actively supported the events of the so-called "Russian spring" in 2014, fighting on the side of the Donbass terrorists. The armed formations of Kositsyn in May 2014 invaded the territory of Ukraine and seized the city of Anthracite.

As reported by the "Apostrophe", the leadership of the terrorist organization "Luhansk People's Republic", under the guise of investment, steals funds that come to the occupied territory from the Russian Federation.

Twitter blocked one of the accounts of Russia Today, which operated under the name of the British Embassy



The social networking administration Twitter blocked the account created by the Russian propaganda channel Russia Today. The channel talked about the history of the Russian revolution in real time, but the account itself was called "@ BritshEmb1917", that is "British Embassy in 1917".

This is reported by The Guardian.

The fact is that the Russian channel account "used the name and image" of the British embassy in Russia and called itself "the Official Twitter Twitter account of the United Kingdom in the Russian Empire."

A spokeswoman for the British Foreign Office said that the country had notified Twitter of an unofficial account that had been used by the Russian side without the consent of the agency itself.

Earlier, the creators of the "historical" account have already complained about his freezing, and turned to the British embassy in Moscow.

"We are ready to do anything to ensure the integrity of Project # 1917Live and recite the revolution in tweets in such a way that it is convenient for us all," said the official representative of Russia Today.

Recall that in October 2016 RT reported to Twitter that their British bank account had been blocked.

In Ukraine, they explained the reason Putin is fighting

on Sat Sep 02, 2017 5:41 pm
In Ukraine, they explained the reason Putin is fighting

Military expert and blogger Alexei Arestovich believes that Russian President Vladimir Putin fights because of his lack of other problems and the desire to restore the Soviet Union.

Arrestovich reported this in an interview with the "Apostrophe".

"There is such a roaring in the world, in this burrow there is almost everywhere Russia. Vladimir Volodymyrovych traverses a large map, moves the chips well to him. Of course, it's not as good as it could be but, in principle, it's good. And besides That, the huge sea of ​​siloviki it all adds up", - the expert speaks.

He notes that Russian liberals are not satisfied with sanctions. And the military authorities, who managed to earn a bunch of money for the wars in Chechnya, South Ossetia, Moldova and other countries, support the Russian president's desire to fight.

"They are dragging away from what's happening from the game itself, all at work, all earning grandmothers." The FSB officer or the Russian army is imperial consciousness: what should he do about life if the army does not fight? The empire must fight, move and win. And then Volodymyr Volodymyrovych gives an opportunity. Hurray, let's have a class! "- Arrestovich explains.

In this context, he points out the plans of the Russians about the seizure of Belarus.

"Here is also Belarus, Belarus - in general," our primordial land ", it's Russia, it's just white, it's necessary to take away, not to take away, to influence it, but on the chess board, which is a good move. We threaten both Poland, the Baltic States and Ukraine at the same time. This is a strong move, at once three shah in different directions, three threatening figures - a class", - he says.

Also, the expert reminds that Putin did not have any domestic problems and he just has nothing to do.

"And for this man, the collapse of the Soviet Union was the main geopolitical catastrophe of the 20th century and a major personal tragedy, which directly stated that it was a personal tragedy, and now you have a tragedy that is hurting and is not going to let you go and you have all the resources to With this tragedy, what will be the next step? He begins to rebuild the Soviet Union, "Arrestovich explains.

Russia's Trade Representation in Washington passed under US control

Russia's Trade Representation in Washington passed under US control

At the trade representation in the Russian Federation in Washington put up American security

The Russian Trade Representation in Washington has become under US control.
Tass reports.

"The Trade Representative of the Russian Federation in Washington has passed under the control of the US authorities," the report states.

The Russian Trade Representative in Washington, DC, said that the diplomatic immunity had been withdrawn from the complex since 14:00 local time.

"They do not think so from the second hour of local time (from 9:00 pm Kyiv time, - ed.)," Said Stadnik, commenting on the question of whether the trade representation has diplomatic immunity.

Near the complex of the trade mission is about a dozen vehicles of the US law enforcement agencies, in the building alternate as police officers in the form, and employees of American competent authorities in the civilian.

The American representative, however, confirmed that the trade mission was transferred to the actual control of the Department of Diplomatic Service (SDB) of the State Department. On the direct question on this topic, he answered affirmatively, but did not give any other comments, only by stretching a sheet with contact information from the press service of the foreign policy department.

Recall Russian media reported that the trade representative of Russia in Washington began to conduct searches.

Earlier, the spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia, Maria Zakharova, said that US intelligence agencies are planning searches at the Russian Consulate in San Francisco.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that Moscow would be rigorous in responding to Washington's unfriendly moves, although it does not want to quarrel with the United States and is ready for constructive engagement.

On the eve of the United States, Russia demanded that the Russian government close the Russian consulate in San Francisco and reduce Russia's diplomatic presence in Washington and New York. The United States stated that this requirement should be met before September 2.

Archbishop assaulted in barbaric new attack on Ukrainian Cathedral in Russian-occupied Crimea

on Sat Sep 02, 2017 11:30 pm
Archbishop assaulted in barbaric new attack on Ukrainian Cathedral in Russian-occupied Crimea



Russian enforcement officers and bailiffs burst into the Cathedral of Volodymyr and Olga, the main Cathedral of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church under the Kyiv Patriarchate in Simferopol on Thursday morning.  The men, many of them masked, blocked the entire premises and used force against Archbishop Kliment, injuring his arm.

Bailiffs forced their way onto the territory of the Cathedral at 10 a.m. on August 31,damaging property on the ground floor, and the doors to the altar on the first floor.  They removed a cross, church chalices, rare icons and some items of porcelain and crystal that had been given to the Church, as well as rugs.  No inventory was made of the items and Archbishop Kliment was not given any document to sign.

The Archbishop and members of the congregation were prevented from entering.  Archbishop Kliment explains that when he tried to enter the Cathedral, the men seized his arm, twisting it so badly that an ambulance needed to be called.

The battle to seize control of the Cathedral of Vladimir and Olga began soon after Russia’s invasion and annexation of Crimea.  Kliment has since said that he was initially offered 200 thousand dollars to give the Cathedral up.

Then in January 2016, the Russian-controlled Crimean Arbitration Court issued a ruling ordering the Church to vacate 112 m²  of the premises and to pay a prohibitive half a million roubles,  which were claimed to be for communal services.  The appeal against that ruling was rejected in June 2016.

The men who burst in on Thursday cited another eviction order from December 2016 which apparently demands that they leave the entire ground floor.

In fact, the Archbishop says, this latest move has effectively blocked and seized all 432 m² of the Cathedral’s territory.

Outrage was expressed on Thursday over what Refat Chubarov, Head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People, called the barbaric attitude of the Russian occupation regime to the clergy and congregation of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.  He sees this persecution, like that against Muslims in Crimea as aimed at driving Crimean Tatars and ethnic Ukrainians from their homeland which Russia is occupying..

The Kyiv Patriarchate also issued a statement calling the action of the Russian enforcement bodies “lawlessness, violation of the right to freedom of conscience, guaranteed by international agreements binding also on Russia. It considers these actions to be a continuation of the occupation regime’s pressure on the Ukrainian religious and ethnic minority in Crimea, intimidation and an attempt to totally destroy the Kyiv Patriarchate on the peninsula. We believe that it is also revenge from the Russian security service for the position taken by Archbishop Kliment and for his statements in defence of political prisoners of the Kremlin’s regime, including Crimean Tatar and Ukrainian activists. “

The Kyiv Patriarchate calls on the Ukrainian government and on the international community, including the EU and its member states, the USA, Canada and other democratic states, the UN and OSCE, to condemn this attack and to demand, as it does, that Russia stops its religious persecution and interference in the activities of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church under the Kyiv Patriarchate in Crimea.

The Ukrainian Orthodox Church under the Kyiv Patriarchate has been under intense pressure since annexation.  In January 2016, Kliment said that the number of churches held by UOC KP had halved since annexation, and that of the 10 remaining churches, one in Yevpatoria had faced several arson attacks.  The seizure of the Church of the Intercession of the Holy Mother of God in the village of Perevalne followed a frightening armed attack on the church and believers in June 2016.  

There have also been threats on businesspeople supporting the Kyiv Patriarchate that they could lose their business if they continue to provide premises for places of worship.

The Archbishop has said that many of those who miss Ukraine come to their churches, although it is clear that they are very aware of being under observation.

“Russian-speakers also come here, and just people who never went to church, but whose heart lies with Ukraine and who miss Ukraine.  They come just to talk, in Russian or in Ukrainian.  We don’t talk about politics, however, that’s very dangerous.  There were occasions when people in plain clothes came to church and sat at the back. Later they made comments on what needed to be removed from the service so that it didn’t “jar”.  You mustn’t say, for example, that the good times will return”.

The Archbishop reported on August 24 that he has addressed an appeal to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko asking him to react to infringements of the rights of both the clergy and congregation in occupied Crimea...............
