US will offer Russia to place 20 thousand peacekeepers in the Donbas

US will offer Russia to place 20 thousand peacekeepers in the Donbas

US authorities plan to offer Russia a plan to deploy 20,000 UN peacekeepers to Donbass.

This is reported by The Wall Street Journal with reference to sources in diplomatic circles.

It is noted that the proposal will come in the "coming days".

Where exactly on the Donbass, Washington offers to host peacekeepers, the material is not reported.

According to the publication, the White House agreed to the delivery of lethal weapons to Ukraine, including Javelin antitank complexes.

At the same time, the decision on the time of start of deliveries is not accepted.

On November 4, Poroshenko and Tillerson discussed further steps to introduce peacekeepers to the Donbas.

In September, Russian President Putin instructed the Russian Foreign Ministry to bring to the UN Security Council a draft resolution on peacekeepers in the Donbas . Putin called the peacekeeping mission exclusively on the clash line. But after talking with Merkel, Putin agreed to take into account the comments on the mission of peacekeepers in the Donbas.

Poroshenko assured that the transfer of UN peacekeepers to the Donbass will not be in the scenario of Russia.

EU is preparing to intensify opposition to Russian propaganda

EU is preparing to intensify opposition to Russian propaganda

Foreign ministers from Great Britain, Poland, Sweden and other EU countries called for increased counteraction to propaganda and misinformation spread by Russia

This is stated in a letter to Fed's Mogherini, EU High Representative for Foreign Policy and Security Policy, signed by heads of foreign ministries of eight EU member states, reports DW.

The letter states that "external actors" are trying to weaken the EU's unity and sow distrust and dissatisfaction with the democratic social system.

According to ministers, the EU should urgently strengthen its capabilities to counter propaganda and to establish more effective communication on global, regional and European issues.

The letter will serve as the basis for a discussion to be held at the EU Foreign Ministers' meeting in Brussels on November 13.

Following the outcome of the discussion, they can make a decision to entrust Mogherini with stepping up EU measures to counter propaganda. The letter to the name of Mogerini was signed by foreign ministers of Great Britain, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Croatia, the Czech Republic and Sweden.

It is noted that in the EU there are two expert groups that monitor and refute Russian media propaganda. However, these groups have a few employees and have limited technical capabilities.

Poland's Duda supports sanctions against Russia and wants to continue to be friends with Ukraine

Poland supports the European policy of sanctions against Russia and wants to improve relations with Ukraine

This was announced by Polish President Andrzej Duda on the air of the Polish Catholic Radio.

"We can not get around this attentiveness (the war in eastern Ukraine - ed.). Therefore, we support the European policy of sanctions, declare the support of Ukraine", - said Dud.

The Polish leader stressed that during 2018-2019 Poland will be a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, where the issue of peace in Ukraine will be on the agenda.

Duda also stressed that he would like Poland's relations with Ukraine to be as good as possible. The President noted that "work needs to be done", but one can not ignore the situation when "the historical truth is denied".

-Let's remind, in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine declared that in the Ukrainian government there are no politicians with anti-Polish sentiment . Against the background of rigorous statements by representatives of the Polish authorities to Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko initiated an extraordinary meeting of the Consultative Committee of the Presidents of Ukraine and Poland.

-The Office of the President of Poland informed the presidential administration about the readiness to host the Ukrainian delegation to the Consultative Committee of the Presidents of Poland and Ukraine.
Duda said he is considering a visit to Ukraine because he wants to visit the graves of the Poles in Kharkiv, as well as understand the situation in the occupied Donbass, as Poland in January 2018 will begin work in the UN Security Council.

A radioactive cloud from Russia or Kazakhstan passed over Europe

on Fri Nov 10, 2017 10:58 am
A radioactive cloud from Russia or Kazakhstan passed over Europe

At the end of September, a cloud of radioactive contamination over Europe was taking place, which could have resulted from the release of radionuclides in Russia or Kazakhstan
This is reported by DW with reference to the French Institute for Nuclear Safety (IRSN).

The IRSN said the incident was likely to occur at the site of nuclear fuel storage or a radioactive medicine center, eliminating an accident on a nuclear reactor. It is reported that the cloud had no effect on human health or the environment in Europe.

The IRSN noted that they could not accurately determine the location of the release of radioactive materials, but based on the analysis of weather conditions, the most likely zone is in the south of the Ural Mountains, between the Urals and the Volga River. This may indicate Russia or, possibly, Kazakhstan.

"The Russian authorities have said they do not know about such an incident in their territory," said IRSN director Jean-Marc Perez. He added that the institute has not yet been in contact with the authorities of Kazakhstan.

Perez noted that in recent weeks, the IRSN and several other nuclear safety institutes in Europe have recorded a high level of ruthenium-106 - a radionuclide that is a product of decomposition of atoms in a nuclear reactor, and which is not found in nature.

According to the IRSN estimate, the number of ruthenium-106 was 100-300 terror scavengers, and that if an accident of this magnitude occurred in France, there would necessarily be evacuation of people within a radius of several kilometers around the epicenter.

White House says no meeting between Trump and Putin scheduled

White House says no meeting between Trump and Putin scheduled



U.S. President Donald Trump will not have a separate meeting with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Vietnam due to scheduling conflicts.
As reported by Censor.NET citing Reuters, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters minutes before landing in Danang, Vietnam.

"Regarding a Putin meeting, there was never a meeting confirmed, and there will not be one that takes place due to scheduling conflicts on both sides," the spokesperson said.

"Now, they're going to be in the same place. Are they going to bump into each other and say hello? Certainly possible and likely. But in terms of a scheduled, formal meeting, there's not one on the calendar and we don't anticipate that there will be one," Sanders said.

As reported, Trump and Putin will both attend the APEC summit in the Vietnamese city of Danang.
