Russia may send out 155 more US diplomats from the country

Russia may send out 155 more US diplomats from the country

The Kremlin may send 155 more US diplomatic missions in response to disputes over Russian diplomatic property in the United States, including the closure of one of the US Consulate General.

This was stated by the director of the North American Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia Georgiy Borisenko, Russian federal media reported .

According to him, while demanding earlier to reduce the number of American diplomats to 455 people, Russia took into account staff of the permanent representation at the United Nations in New York. However, they are not engaged in bilateral relations.

"We actually went to meet the Americans. Since they did not appreciate it, we have the full right to deduct from this figure 455 the number which corresponds to the number of employees of our permanent representation. Then the number of American staff in Russia should fall to a level of 300 people or lower ", - Borisenko said.

Recall that on July 30, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that 755 American diplomats will have to leave the Russian Federation.

Putin made such a statement in response to sanctions against the Russian Federation , which was supported by the US Senate. The bill was approved by the House of Representatives with a tightening of sanctions against the three countries .

August 31, the United States responded to the reduction in the state of American diplomats in Russia . Washington has announced the requirement to close the Consulate General of Russia in San Francisco. In addition, the United States called for a reduction in the number of diplomatic missions of the Russian Federation in Washington and New York.

About 20 Russian "official military" killed in Syria in two weeks

on Wed Oct 11, 2017 11:30 am
About 20 Russian "official military" killed in Syria in two weeks

Over the past two weeks, about 20 Russian "official military" were killed in Syria, and three times more "non-official" fighters from private military companies.
This was stated by terrorist and formed so-called 'defense minister' of self-styled "Donetsk people's republic" Igor Girkin (Strelkov) on his page in VKontakte, Censor.NET reports.

He is citing a former fighter from Wagner private military company who had fought in the Donbas and Syria as saying that over the past week, three people were killed and many more wounded from his former detachment.

"Another my former subordinate is now in hospital in Odintsovo, wounded in Syria within Wagner's group. He's not alone - several people arrive every week," Girkin wrote.

"From a third source I know that estimated losses of "official military" over the past two weeks reached up to 20 people; private military companies lost, respectively, three times more. And those are minimum estimates.

"Such losses of regular military and mercenaries (who are contract soldiers in fact) are caused by rapid escalation of fighting against ISIS in Deir ez-Zor and Mayadin, where Russian private military companies (by 90% comprising Slavic people) are used as assault groups," Girkin wrote.

"I want to thank dozens of Czechs, often completely strangers, who today sent the words of support and ... apologies to the embassy. I know well that millions of Czech friends are in solidarity with the Ukrainians in our struggle against the Russian aggressor and occupation. Otherwise, it can not be in a country whose people gave the world Vaclav Havel, "the ambassador emphasized.

On October 10, the President of the Czech Republic, Milos Zeman, said he considers the loss of Ukraine Crimea "a completed case" and offered to settle it with the help of payments to Ukraine.

The Embassy of the Czech Republic in Ukraine indicated that Ziemann in the PACE expressed a personal point of view regarding the annexation of the Crimea and advised to apply for a commentary to the Office of the President of the Czech Republic.

In turn, the Czech Prime Minister Bogusław Sobotka stressed that Zeman's statement contradicts the Czech foreign policy.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine expressed its indignation over the statements of the Czech President.

Denmark may block construction of North Stream-2

Denmark may block construction of North Stream-2



The Parliament of Denmark on Thursday, October 12, will discuss a new bill for the first time, which will enable blocking the project of the North Stream 2 pipeline.

This document is supported by the government and major opposition parties, reports Tsensor. NET with reference to Ukrinform.

"At the moment, such projects that use Danish territorial waters can only be blocked due to environmental concerns. According to the new law, the country will also take into account security, foreign policy, defense and political issues before giving approval," the report said.

It is noted that the law may come into force in January 2018, but it remains unclear whether it will be quick enough to block the expected application of the builders of the Russian gas pipeline.

According to the consortium Nord Stream, based in Switzerland and is the "daughter" of the Russian state-owned company Gazprom, it plans to build a gas pipeline extending 1200 km along the Baltic Sea to Germany. The planned pipeline route should pass through the economic zones of Finland and Sweden, as well as through 139 km of Danish territorial waters, concentrating almost all the exports of Russian gas to Europe on one route.
