The Central American publication The Washington Post, on the initiative of the Embassy of Ukraine in the United States, posted on its pages a large poster calling for "the next step" in the military support of Ukraine, which protects the security of the whole of Europe.

Violence continues, this threat to the Ukrainian people and the security of Europe must be stopped," - it is noted in the illustrated text .

It is noted that now Ukraine spends 5.6% of GDP on security and defense. Eight Ukrainian battalions have reached NATO-compatible standards; The United States put counterbalanced radar; American instructors conducted trainings for more than 4,000 Ukrainian servicemen - and this allowed us to save many lives in Ukraine.

"US military support to this day was vital for Ukraine's defense, and Ukraine is ready for the next step," the report says.




Ambassador of Ukraine to the United States Valery Chalyi in his comments on this subject noted that the announced message "absolutely transparent". He informs about the achievements of the Ukrainian Army, the real benefits of US assistance and the level of bilateral cooperation between America and Ukraine in the military-technical sphere.

The initiator of the "Magnitsky Law" resumed permission to enter the United States

on Tue Oct 24, 2017 12:04 pm
The initiator of the "Magnitsky Law" resumed permission to enter the United States

The head of Hermitage Capital, the initiator of the Magnitogean Act, William Browder, has been reinstated for entry into the United States.

This was reported by Browder himself.


He said he successfully signed up for a flight to the United States.

"Now we need to fix the situation with the false order of Interpol to arrest," - added Browder.

On the eve of the US government canceled a British businessman, William Browder after Russia brought him to the Interpol base.

Former US ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul, described the situation as "shocking" and urged US President Donald Trump and the State Department to "not join Putin's campaign against Browder."

On October 22, it became known that Russia, from the fifth attempt, was able to make William Browder on the Interpol list. The Russian authorities accuse him of financial malpractice and tax evasion. He was arrested in absentia.

Browder himself is convinced that his persecution is connected with the case of the death in November 2009 at the Moscow SIZO of the lawyer of Hermitage Capital Sergei Magnitsky, who revealed a scheme of large-scale thefts from the Russian budget.

Browder was one of the initiators of the adoption in the United States of the "Magnet Law".

The document was approved by the US Congress at the end of 2012. It provides for visa and economic sanctions against Russians involved in Washington's views of human rights violations.

By "Magnitsky Act", Canada has also joined  for what the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, called the actions of Ottawa unconstructive political games. According to him, this topic is used in the West to "inflate anti-Russian hysteria".

In February 2017, a law similar to the "Magnificent Act" was  endorsed in Britain.

Russian propagandist spoke about who he wants to fight from Crimea

The military bases in the occupied Crimea are necessary for Russia to ensure the rule of its fleet in the Black Sea. Thus, these troops will be counterbalanced by the US Navy, located in the Mediterranean Sea.

This was stated by the editor-in-chief of the Russian newspaper "Zavtra", propagandist Alexander Prokhanov on the air of one of the broadcasts on the TV channel "Russia 1". According to him, Russia has launched two large projects: "Arctic" and "Southern".

"Russia's first project is Arctic, we are creating a new Russian civilization in the North, covering the North Pole's breakthrough that has been formed since 1991. We will put defense structures, radars, air defense armies that will meet the B-52 above the pole there. This is the first huge project"- said the propagandist Alexander Prokhanov.

He further noted that the second project is called "Southern" and is associated with the occupied Crimea and Sevastopol.

"The Crimea (occupied by the Russian Federation - the apostrophe), Sevastopol, the fleet and domination in the Black Sea, also need bases on the coast of Syria and the possibility of creating squadrons that will counteract the sixth fleet (US Sixth Fleet - US Navy Operational Fleet , deployed in the Mediterranean Sea - ed.)", - said Prokhanov.
