Intervention of Russia did not affect the results of the presidential election, - the head of the US finance ministry Mnuchin

on Mon Nov 13, 2017 9:20 am
Intervention of Russia did not affect the results of the presidential election, - the head of the US finance ministry Mnuchin



US Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin believes that Russian intervention in the US presidential election in 2016 did not have much effect on their outcome.

Mnuchin told about this in an interview with the CBS channel, Tsensor.NET reports , referring to the Public .

"Judging by the confidential information I saw, nobody thinks that the intervention of Russia had some influence on the elections. Whatever happens, there was no influence," Mnuchin said. He believes that the American public should move to more important issues: tax reform and foreign policy.

"We clearly apply sanctions against Russia. I think that the president is now concentrating on other important issues, such as North Korea and Syria," the minister explained.

The question posed to him relates to US President Donald Trump, who, in a conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the APEC, touched on the topic of "Russian intervention" in the US elections. Putin once again rejected these assumptions.

According to the head of the Finance Ministry, President Trump is confident in intelligence data from the United States about the interference of Moscow. At the same time, according to Mnukhin, Trump trusts Putin's words.

Recall that American intelligence is suspecting that the Kremlin has intervened in the US election campaign to help Donald Trump win the election. The Special Prosecutor and several Congressional committees are investigating whether members of the Trump Election Commission entered the conspiracy with the Kremlin.

Britain suspects Kaspersky Lab of espionage

Britain suspects Kaspersky Lab of espionage

British intelligence agencies are concerned about the spread of Kaspersky Lab's anti-virus software in the country.

This evening on Sunday, November 12, the newspaper The Financial Times reports with reference to government officials.

According to the publication, the GCHQ, the intelligence agency responsible for British security information security, suspects that the FSB of Russia uses the company's software to espionage for strategically important foreign purposes - for example, for government employees or the United Kingdom military.

Barclays Bank, which offers its customers free use of Kaspersky Lab's software in 2008, plans to cease cooperation with Eugene Kaspersky, the Financial Times reports.

At the same time, Barclays emphasized that the decision to terminate the contract with Kaspersky Lab was due to commercial reasons and the bank did not receive any messages or recommendations from the GCHQ.

There is no evidence that someone from Barclays clients who installed Kaspersky Anti-Virus has escaped, says the newspaper.

On October 12th, the United States suspected Kaspersky Lab of searching for sensitive data on computers.

Earlier, the US Senate supported the ban on Kaspersky Lab's use of the product by the government .

On September 12, it was reported that Kaspersky Lab closed the United States unit that cooperated with the government.

On September 15, the founder of Kaspersky Labs was asked to give evidence in the US Congress. Later, the hearing was postponed indefinitely.

I do not want to be dead "hero" of Donbas: it became known about the flight to Russia, the leader of one of the "battalions" of the DPR

Alexey Smirnov, the leader of the "Angel" battalion of fighters, hastily left the Donbas and returned to Moscow (Russian Federation).

He reported this on his page in the social network.

"I will say frankly, I do not see the point of becoming another dead person of the Donbas, because all the prerequisites for this are. I have never climbed politics, never discredited the authorities. Never hunted and defiled people in the network, we simply showed life on the front as is", - he said.

According to Smirnov, some members of his battalion are already dead.

It should be noted that in September 2016 Oleksiy Smirnov detained the "DPR" fighters for the fact of illegal possession of weapons, explosives and ammunition. In early June 2017, Smirnov announced he was released.

Volker and Surkov in Belgrade will discuss all the topical issues concerning the Donbass, including peacekeepers, - Peskov



United States Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker and Russian President's Assistant Vladislav Surkov during a November 13 meeting in Belgrade will discuss all major issues of settlement
in the south-east of Ukraine, including those related to a peacekeeping mission in the Donbas.

According to Tsensor.NET , referring to Interfax-Ukraine, the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Monday.

"Of course, the theme of the peacekeeping mission and related initiatives will also be on the agenda. All the topical issues will be discussed," Peskov said at the request of Volkera and Surkov in Belgrade.

According to him, Volker and Surkov will continue to exchange views.

"This is a direct channel of exchange of views (between Moscow and Washington) regarding the situation in the south-east of Ukraine. Naturally, all issues related to the agenda formed around this conflict are discussed," Peskov said.

As it was reported, on September 5, Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed the opinion that the presence of UN peacekeepers in the Donbass would be in favor of resolving the conflict in eastern Ukraine, and instructed the RF Ministry of Foreign Affairs to make a corresponding draft resolution for consideration by the UN Security Council.

Irina Gerashchenko, the first vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, a representative of Ukraine in the Trilateral Contact Group on the settlement of the situation in the Donbass, said that the introduction of a UN peacekeeping mission on the line of collision in eastern Ukraine can not be the language, the peacekeepers must be introduced to the entire territory occupied by Russia.

Later, the Russian post-spokeswoman for the UN Vasyl Nebenzha reported that on Tuesday the Russian side sent a draft resolution on the deployment of peacekeepers to Donbass to the UN Secretary-General and head of the UN Security Council.

In numerous statements of the Russian authorities, it was emphasized that peacekeepers should be placed only on the line of delimitation of the parties to the conflict, but not on the entire occupied territory of the Donbas and especially not on the Russian-Ukrainian border.

Subsequently, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that Putin had agreed to deploy peacekeepers throughout the Donbas to protect OSCE staff.

It is very dangerous: in the West, how Hungary could hinder the movement of Ukraine into the EU and NATO

It is very dangerous: in the West, how Hungary could hinder the movement of Ukraine into the EU and NATO

The question of Hungary's dispute with Ukraine regarding the law on education is potentially very dangerous for the latter.

This opinion was expressed in an interview with "The Apostrophe" by a British political scientist and author of books about Ukraine Andrew Wilson.

"For the most part, the relations between Ukraine and the EU are fully justified by the European Commission, that is, the level of Brussels, and not the Member States." And the Eastern Partnership as a whole is a policy that is fully formed and managed by the European Commission, so when Hungary screams and threatens to delay the process, is it really able to do it? Yes, because sometimes policies really interfere, especially if there is an extraordinary event, like the Netherlands referendum, "Andrew Wilson said.

According to the British political scientist, the issue of relations between Ukraine and the EU should be resolved at the level of 28 member states through the European Commission.

"If you allow individual states to have the right to veto it is in the hands of Russia, because it will definitely be able to use it. I do not think that the EU is sufficiently aware of this danger. It will be an alternative future in which you will not reach the point. potential application of Article 49, when Ukraine will be able to join the EU if you give individual member states the right to veto, "added the political scientist.

The European Parliament proposes to Ukraine "Eastern Partnership +"

on Mon Nov 13, 2017 11:17 am
The European Parliament proposes to Ukraine "Eastern Partnership +"



The European Parliament calls for deepening European integration of Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova in the "Eastern Partnership Plus" format, in particular the accession of these countries to the EU customs, energy, digital unions and the Schengen area.

This is stated in the draft report of the legislative body of the EU, which contains recommendations to the Council of the European Union, the European Commission and the European External Action Service to promote the Eastern Partnership policy on the eve of the initiative summit on November 24, reports Censor. NET, referring to Ukrinform.

"It is extremely important to create an Eastern Partnership Partnership model for countries with associations with the possibility of further participation in customs, energy and digital unions (within the framework of the EU - Ed.)," Said one of the authors of the draft report, Lithuanian MEP Lima Andriciene .

The document, which will be debated on Tuesday, and Wednesday's voting, states that Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova are doing hard work to strengthen ties with the EU, despite strong opposition from Russia.

Therefore, the European Parliament proposes to create a Trust Fund for these three countries, which should involve public and private investments for the implementation of socio-economic projects in Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova.

In addition, it is recommended to strengthen support for economic reforms and to improve and expand the current partnership format for the so-called "CfP +", which will ensure access of the three countries to the customs, energy and digital alliances within the EU, as well as participation in the Schengen area.

"The European Parliament once again notes that the association agreements with Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine are not the ultimate goal of their relations with the EU. The EP will once again recognize the European aspirations of these countries," the draft law of the EU legislature states.

The EP also intends to emphasize the need to continue the pressure on Russia, which is especially important on the eve of discussions about the extension of anti-Russian sanctions in January 2018.

The document noted the need to strengthen the support of eastern partners to strengthen resilience to new threats, in particular in the areas of cyberwar, misinformation and other types of destabilization, including targeted political murders.

The MEPs also, as envisaged in the document, will declare the inability of the Eastern Partnership countries to participate in military exercises conducted by Russia, in particular such as the "West".

In addition, the European Parliament plans to support the initiative to abolish mobile roaming charges between the EU and its eastern partners and to determine the specific time frame for implementation of this solution.

Russia can be ousted from the 2018 Olympics: the reasons are named

Russia can be ousted from the 2018 Olympics: the reasons are named

Russia may not be allowed to participate in the 2018 Olympic Games in connection with the refusal to restore the rights of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency.

According to the Echo of Moscow, with reference to the German TV channel ARD, it is expected that the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) will recognize RUSADA as not complying with the organization's code. This decision will be announced this week.

Such a decision by WADA will be due to the fact that Russia did not recognize the state's interference with the anti-doping program, nor did it grant access to closed samples of samples. In addition, it is reported that the main informant WADA Grigory Rodchenkov has new data on the doping system in Russian sports.

It should be noted that the decision on Russia's participation in the 2018 Olympic Games will be adopted by the IOC in early December.
