US intelligence officials pointed to a cunning move made by Putin against the West

on Wed Sep 06, 2017 11:47 am
US intelligence officials pointed to a cunning move made by Putin against the West

The proposal of Russian President Vladimir Putin and the introduction of UN peacekeeping forces on Donbass is an attempt by the Russian Federation to reduce the pressure of Western countries.

This is stated in the report of the private American intelligence-analytical company Stratfor, which is at the disposal of "Apostrophe".

The report says that Russia is thus trying to pause the talks with the United States and create an image of a country that seeks to limit the level of violence in the Donbas.

"But most of all, Putin's proposal is aimed at breaking up the united position of Western countries in Russia and giving Moscow more opportunities to maneuver in relations with other countries," said Stratfor.

Germany opposes the idea of ​​Putin with peacekeepers only on the line of demarcation

Germany opposes the idea of ​​Putin with peacekeepers only on the line of demarcation

In the federal government of Germany, it is believed that in the case of sending a UN peacekeeping mission to Donbas, "blue helmets" should be placed throughout the conflict, not just on the line of collision

This was stated by Deputy Speaker of the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany Ulrika Demmer, reports DW .

In addition, there are no grounds for negotiating a peacekeeping mission in Berlin with the participation of representatives of the "DPR" and "LNR" in Berlin.

"It would be unacceptable to increase the value of the self-proclaimed leadership of so-called republics," the representative of the German government stressed.

-September 5, Vladimir Putin supported the idea of ​​deploying peacekeepers in the zone of the Russian-Ukrainian military conflict in the Donbass. However, he insists that the peacekeeping contingent should only be placed on the demarcation line.

-Ukraine opposed such a scenario. As the first deputy head of the Verkhovna Rada Iryna Gerashchenko stated, peacekeepers should be deployed throughout the occupied Donbas area , not just on the line of demarcation.

-The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine took note of Putin's statement that UN peacekeepers could be deployed in the Donbass, but stressed that they would not allow Russians to be Ukrainians under the guise of UN peacekeepers.

In the West, they said about the Russian trail in the regular cyber attacks in the United States

A group of hackers Dragonfly, Energetic Bear or Berserk Bear, associated with Russia, were suspected of gaining access to US energy company systems.

This is reported by the Financial Times with reference to the reports of the American company Symantec, which specializes in cybersecurity.

The material points out that the actions of hackers did not lead to serious consequences, but such a danger exists. Hackers regard the actions of the company as "politically motivated" against companies concentrated in the United States and Turkey. It is noted that even an attack on a small company could jeopardize the entire energy system.

"We see their activity, understand how they work, understand how they can carry out their sabotage campaign, but there is no evidence that they are breaking the job ... They are waiting for a situation when a political event will occur and then they will be a tool for a cyber attack, "said Symantec Technical Director Eric Chen.

They will concern the introduction of a special status on a permanent basis, according to the" Steinmeier formula" ", - he said.

Also, one of the conditions, according to Gryzlov, is to ensure the breeding of forces and means across the line of collision.

Ukraine’s reform drive is powering ahead

on Wed Sep 06, 2017 2:23 pm
Ukraine’s reform drive is powering ahead

Corruption persists but EU support and local efforts have spurred progress elsewhere

After the lengthy saga of its signature and ratification, the Association Agreement between the European Union and Ukraine finally came fully into force on September 1.

This is, probably, the most dramatic EU deal with a non-EU country. Its earlier rejection by Ukraine’s former president Viktor Yanukovich sparked the Euromaidan protests in 2013, which in turn were “punished” by Vladimir Putin’s Russia through its annexation of Crimea and the war in Donbas. These events have transformed a bureaucratic text into a symbol of the changes that many Ukrainians are striving for.

Much of the story since 2013 is tragic. The war in Donbas has taken more than 10,000 lives and continues. Many reforms in Ukraine advanced more slowly than was needed; the economy has struggled under a huge recession and is only now recovering.

On the other hand, for the first time since independence in 1991, Ukraine is involved in genuine reforms that will empower ordinary citizens and not just the corrupt elites. The EU agreement helps, directly and indirectly. Outside pressure and incentives are key to keeping reform on track........................

Russia seeks to close Ukraine’s window to the west

on Wed Sep 06, 2017 2:38 pm
Russia seeks to close Ukraine’s window to the west

Infrastructure projects risk turning traditional east-west bridge into an island

Last month, Russia completed a railway that bypasses Ukraine. The project was entrusted to a special military unit and completed a year ahead of schedule, underscoring its importance to the Kremlin. It is the latest of several Russian-led infrastructure projects that, coupled with the devastation wrought by the conflict with Russian-backed separatists in the Donbas region, risk turning Ukraine, historically a bridge between east and west, into an island.

Isolation from emerging east-west connectivity could be one of the most enduring and most damaging consequences of the war for Ukraine, one that both Kiev and its western partners need to pay more attention to overcoming.

Not long ago, Ukraine hoped to become a major gateway along China’s Belt and Road, a massive connectivity initiative stretching across Eurasia and beyond.

“The idea of the Great Silk Road will be actively supported by Ukraine,” then-President Viktor Yanukovich said during his visit to Beijing in 2013. Agreements promising $8bn in Chinese investment were signed, including a $3bn port in Crimea. But those deals were among the casualties of the armed conflict that erupted in early 2014.

So too were many existing connections between Ukraine and Russia, which were either damaged in the fighting or deliberately severed as a form of economic pressure.

Ukraine’s conflict also disrupted internal connections between separatist-held regions of Donetsk and Lugansk oblasts and the rest of the country. In the early days of the fighting, separatist forces targeted critical infrastructure in eastern Ukraine......................

During the inspection of the Russian Consulate in San Francisco, the law was not violated - the US ambassador to the Russian Federation

on Wed Sep 06, 2017 7:46 pm
During the inspection of the Russian Consulate in San Francisco, the law was not violated - the US ambassador to the Russian Federation

The American authorities did not go beyond the law when reviewing the premises occupied by the Russian Consulate in San Francisco.

This was stated in a joint interview with Radio Liberty and the Voice of America by US Ambassador to Russia John Tefft, according to Tsensor. NET.

The announcement that the representatives of the Russian diplomatic missions allegedly pressed is false, he stressed.

Tefft also expressed hope that both sides will refrain from further reducing diplomatic missions. He noted that the withdrawal of consent for the Consulate in San Francisco was held after the Russian side demanded to reduce the number of American diplomats in the country, so that "parity" was respected both in the number of employees and in the number of consulates.

The situation with the suspension of the issuance of nonimmigrant visas in Moscow and the regions of Russia, John Tefft called the forced event, explaining that the consulates lack staff. He especially emphasized that Washington's actions were not a punishment for Russian citizens, and said that the American side was interested in developing business cooperation between the two countries.

Last Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Moscow could further reduce the staff of the American diplomatic mission to 155 people, but will not do so yet.

Earlier, on August 31, 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 in New York that belongs to the Consulate. "It is necessary to September 2," - said in a statement State Department spokesman Heather Noerth.

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 significantly reduced volume." In addition, as stated at the embassy, ​​"the change 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, the Obama administration imposed a ban on visiting several diplomats by Russian diplomats.

On July 28, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has 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, from August 1, the US Embassy in Moscow banned the use of a dacha in Silver Bory and warehouse premises on Road Street in Moscow.

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

Such decision was made by Moscow after the US Senate voted overwhelmingly for an updated package of restrictive fines against Russia, Iran and North Korea.

UN: it is unacceptable to involve separatists in peacekeepers in Donbass, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany

on Wed Sep 06, 2017 7:59 pm
UN: it is unacceptable to involve separatists in peacekeepers in Donbass, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany



It is unacceptable for the United Nations to involve separatists in the negotiation process on peacekeeping in the Donbas.

As informs Tsensor.NET , this is stated in a statement transmitted to UNIAN by the German Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Martin Schaefer.

"It is not necessary to critically perceive Putin's initiative at the same time: in the end, it is a concrete proposal that is in harmony with Ukrainian, although it excludes a few key differences," he said.

"And indeed: it's only inappropriate to talk about the contact line, because the separatists are hampering the OSCE's SMM throughout the eastern part of Ukraine, and not just along the line of demarcation," said the German Foreign Ministry spokeswoman.

"For the UN unacceptable and unknown is the practice of involving separatists in the negotiation process on peacekeeping activities in a particular region," Schaeffer said.

At the same time, he noted that it is possible only to "think on the coffee grounds," which prompted the Russian President Vladimir Putin to make such a decision. "It will be seen that this will be presented in New York. The question is open to the question of the nationality of the peacekeeping mission participants," the representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany said.

The trial of suspects in the organization of the MH17 disaster over the Donbas will be held in The Hague

on Wed Sep 06, 2017 8:20 pm
The trial of suspects in the organization of the MH17 disaster over the Donbas will be held in The Hague



The Netherlands has decided that a lawsuit on suspects in the disaster of the Malaysian Airlines flight MN17, which was shot down in the sky over the Donbas, will be held in The Hague.

According to the Dutch media, Justice Minister Stef Block said today in parliament, reports Tsensor. NET with reference to UNIAN.

"The Minister believes that the Hague trial is the most logical option for this process, and it may also happen that the trial will not be conducted in The Hague itself, but elsewhere outside the city," the statement said.

In the past, an agreement has already been reached that suspects will be in accordance with the legislation of the Netherlands.

Meanwhile, the Netherlands would like to see the case reviewed by the UN International Court of Justice, but in the UN Security Council, Russia has exercised the right to veto. According to the media, a criminal investigation is still ongoing, and no charges have been filed yet.

Recall that the plane MN17 Amsterdam - Kuala Lumpur 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) made public the findings that Malaysian "Boeing" was hit with a "ground-air" rocket from the "Beech" installation that fired from the area of ​​the Donbas town of Snignee (at that time under the control of the DPR). The investigation team has representatives from five countries - Malaysia, the Netherlands, Belgium, Australia and Ukraine. Russia refused to participate in the joint investigation.
