"At that moment, as these premises ceased to be recognized by Americans as a Consulate General. the department of the embassy or the Consulate General, they were given the opportunity to go in for the same reasons as any other premises in the US, "he wrote in a post on Facebook .

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

'S media reported that the Russia trade in Washington began to conduct searches.

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has published video surveys at the Consulate General 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.

Putin is more and more afraid of the Ukrainian Army, as its strength grows

on Sun Sep 03, 2017 12:08 pm
Putin is more and more afraid of the Ukrainian Army, as its strength grows

Russia during the exercises "West-2017" may decide on various kinds of actions to weaken the Ukrainian army, including aggression against Ukraine.

According to Tsensor.NET , the former commander of the Land Forces of Poland, former deputy minister of national defense of the Republic of Poland Waldemar Skhpchak , expressed the opinion in a commentary to Ukrinforma .

"Ukraine may be afraid of some actions (during the" West-2017 "- Ed.), Which will greatly weaken the Ukrainian army. In my opinion, Putin is increasingly afraid of the Ukrainian Army, as its strength is growing and it is now in a state of the time of fighting to repel separatists Lugansk and Donetsk," - said the Polish military expert.

In his view, the United States and other Western countries do not give Ukraine security guarantees that could stimulate Putin's president to engage in aggressive actions, in particular, during the exercise "West-2017".

"The transfer of the first tank army of Russia to Belarus is dangerous for the center of Ukraine. In the event of an aggravation of the situation, the Russians can strike from the north, splitting Ukraine into two parts, breaking through the corridor in Transnistria and trying to create in Kiev, a separatist government ", - said Skshipchak.

According to the expert, it is not so important whether a part of the Russian troops in Belarus will remain after exercises, since the Belarusian army is de facto part of Russia, and the border between the RB and Russia is formal.

"It's not a problem if the Russian tank will remain in Brest, but the problem if it will accumulate fuel, ammunition, or reserve reservists will be mobilized. If someone wants a war, then these stocks and ammunition are already there, and if they are not there, then the troops will come and go ", - noted the former commander of the Land Forces of Poland, adding that fear should be detected in the event of the discovery of such signs.

Skhpchak drew attention to the fact that the scenario of exercises "West" for many years is typical: on paper - defensive, and in practice - offensive.

"The scenario of the exercises is always the same: initially, NATO's aggression is supposed to be nonsense, and then they are defending themselves, reflecting our (Western-Ed.) Attacks, then they counterattack and set the world. Of course defense in the initial phase of the exercises It is not even worked out, it's only written on paper, they train aggression and counter-offensive, "said a Polish expert.

Commenting on the recent visit of Polish Chief of Staff, Lesheka Suravsky to Lviv and his meeting with Ukrainian counterpart Viktor Mugenkov, he noted that this is an "important gesture" and that the parties have many questions for discussion - high-level cooperation, joint training, cooperation in the field of defense etc.

"Ukraine has rebuilt its defense capability, has excellent solutions to armaments and military equipment, and therefore the Polish side should use it," - said Skshipchak. He added, for example, about tanks, electronics and technical intelligence.

Russian-Belarussian studies "West-2017" will be held from September 14 to 20.

"There is really a violation of international law," - Peskov on FBI searches at the Moscow Trade Mission in Washington

FBI searches at the Russian trade office in Washington cause complete rejection and lead to further degradation of relations between Russia and the United States.

This was stated by the press - secretary of the president of Russia Dmitry Peskov , transfers Tsenzor.NET with reference to Interfax.

"We can express our deepest condolences in view of the fact that there is an act of violation of international law. There is indeed a violation of international law, there are actions that obviously contradict the convention on diplomatic relations, this is not may not provoke a complete rejection, steps are being taken that lead to further degradation of Russian-American relations," Peskov told reporters on Sunday.

He noted that a month ago, further degradation in relations between the two countries seemed impossible, however, he said, the American side demonstrates that "they are able to go even further and farther."

Answering a question about the possibility of measures in response to these searches, Peskov said: "Let's wait for the point of view of the head of the Russian state in relation to this."

He also answered the question about whether the president of Russia was informed about these events. "And what do you think? When one of the largest countries in the world trample on international law, the president of another major country in the world will immediately be informed about this," Peskov said.

Earlier Thursday, the US decided to close the Russian Consulate in San Francisco and a number of consular facilities in Washington and New York in response to a reduction in US diplomatic presence in Russia. "Following the principle of parity mentioned by the Russian side, we ask the Russian authorities to close the Consulate General in San Francisco, as well as a Washington- based consulate building and another building belonging to the Consulate in New York. Close these" It is necessary to do this till September 2" , - said in a statement by the representative of the State Department Heather Noyert.

On 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 to the Russian Federation, starting from August 23, 2017, the procedure for issuing nonimmigrant visas throughout Russia will be suspended." At the same time, as it is noted, from September 1, "the procedure for issuing nonimmigrant visas will be restored, but in a considerably reduced volume." In addition, as stated at the embassy, ​​"changes in the number of employees of the US diplomatic mission will also affect the timetable for the issuance of a number of immigrant visas."

Recall that last December, the former US government decided to send 35 Russian diplomats, as well as members of their families from the country. In addition,

On July 28, the Foreign Ministry of Russia demanded to reduce the number of diplomatic and technical staff of the US Embassy in Moscow and the Consulate General in St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok to 455 people by September 1. In addition, since August 1, the US Embassy in Moscow is forbidden to use a summer residence in the Silver Bor and warehouse premises on Road Street in Moscow.

The US State Department has not specified how many diplomats will have to leave the Russian Federation, but, according to The Washington Post, it is about a few hundred people.

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