"As in the past, threatened territory from the Baltic to the Black Sea", - he said.

However, US State Department spokesman said on the desire to modernize Moscow's troops and pointed out that "the location of military forces in Europe contributes to Russia."

"And as in the past, Russia is propaganda and deceptive game destroying society electorates and institutions of the Euro-Atlantic community" - said Hook.

In Britain, an investigation into Russia's intervention in the Brexit referendum began

on Fri Nov 17, 2017 2:23 pm
In Britain, an investigation into Russia's intervention in the Brexit referendum began

According to a study by the University of California at Berkeley and the University of Swansea, Russia could influence the outcome of the referendum on the UK's exit from the European Union.

This is transmitted by the Voice of America.

Researchers have found tens of thousands of accounts in social networks that agitate for the exit from the EU or fuel political and inter-racial conflicts.

In two days before the victory of Brexit supporters in June 2016, almost 45,000 posts were posted on Twitter on accounts registered in Russia, mainly against British membership in the EU. The day after the referendum, most of the accounts stopped working.

"Russia intervenes and tries to undermine public trust in political institutions and leading media in Western countries," said Damian Collins, a member of the British parliament, in a bid to see the distribution of fake news from false accounts on Twitter and Facebook in this key as a real threat to our democracy.

As the "Apostrophe" reported earlier, on October 24, the British Parliamentary Committee addressed a written request to Facebook founder Mark Zuckenberg to provide information on Russian actions in the social network connected with the referendum on the withdrawal of the country from the European Union and the parliamentary elections in Britain in 2017.

Putin has officially recognized its influence on the leaders of the DPR-LNR: made a loud statement

The Kremlin admitted that President Vladimir Putin had a "certain" influence on the leadership of the terrorists in the Donbass.

This was announced by the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov, Russian media reported.

He answered the question whether Putin's telephone conversation with militant leaders regarding the release of Ukrainian prisoners was a direct intervention of Russia in the Donbass War.

"We have no way to squeeze somehow into these unrecognized republics, we have no way of giving someone an order there because these republics live an independent life, but the president has never concealed that he has the opportunity to make appeals, the opportunity to exercise some influence - not unlimited, but definite,"- said Peskov.

He also noted that Putin had an understanding "in his interlocutors with the reservation that further details should be agreed upon with representatives of the Ukrainian side."

Recall that on November 15, Putin talked with the leaders of the terrorists "DNR-LNR" and offered them to exchange prisoners with Ukraine.

Negotiations with Russia on Donbas: Ukraine was named Putin's weakest place

on Fri Nov 17, 2017 2:27 pm
Negotiations with Russia on Donbas: Ukraine was named Putin's weakest place

In order for the United States and Russia to negotiate a war on the Donbas to produce the desired results, it is necessary, in particular, to reduce the export of petroleum products from Russia.

This was stated in a comment to the "Apostrophe" by a non-factional MP and chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Anna Hopko.

" Ukraine needs to rely on the United States to help the European Union understand that it is necessary to reduce the export of petroleum products and gas from Russia to the EU markets, because Putin's weakest point lies in the fact that 75 percent of all petroleum products from the Russian Federation go to the EU markets. it will not understand the EU, Putin will not be compliant,"- said the People's Deputy.

"The United States and the EU need to come up with new strategies, because this negotiation moment can be endless," Hopko categorically stated.

In turn, political analyst Andriy Buzarov believes that such a variant of pressure on Russia is unlikely.

" I do not agree that these measures can somehow influence Putin in terms of actions. Perhaps such measures can be used as a form of punishment for the fact of aggression in the Donbas, the annexation of the Crimea. But from the point of view that this will give a result, I do not consider such an option. It all depends on Putin's position, "he said.

About which scenarios of the end of the war are agreed by the representatives of Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin and what can be expected from their talks in Ukraine in more detail read in the material "Apostrophe" - Trump and Putin are preparing a breakthrough on Donbass: a scenario for the end of the war.

Russia's actions over the last decade have shown that Moscow's willingness to violate the sovereignty and territorial integrity of other peoples is "real" and not "just rhetorical."



Russia's actions over the last decade have shown that Moscow's willingness to violate the sovereignty and territorial integrity of other peoples is "real" and not "just rhetorical."

As informs Tsensor.NET with reference to the League , said at the transatlantic forum in Russia director of the Department of Political Planning of the US Department of State Bryan Hook, writes Radio Liberty .
He stressed that the threats to Europe from Russia are similar to those threatened by the West during the Cold War.

"As in the past, the territory from the Baltic to the Black Sea is under threat," he said.

He pointed to Moscow's desire for the modernization of troops and noted that "the military presence of forces in Europe contributes to Russia."

"Moscow has developed a cruise missile with nuclear engines," with a clear violation of the "Medium-Range Nuclear Arms Agreement," he added.

He believes that, as in the past, Russia has a propaganda and disinformation game.

"The big difference between today's Russia and its Soviet form is that it lacks the ideological coherence that would support its actions, but Russia, nevertheless, is a serious rival," Hook added.

Hook reminded of Russia's war against Georgia in 2008, the illegal annexation of Crimea and the hybrid war on the Donbas.

The Foreign Policy Office of the United States knows that Putin's Russia controls pro-Russian militants in the Donbas, holds them and teaches with the help of army advisers.

On November 17, the second president of Ukraine Leonid Kuchma announced that Russia intends to protect the occupied territories on the Donba border, creating "something like Transnistria."

His words are quoted by Interfax-Ukraine.

"What Russia offers on the line of collision is to make a new border with Ukraine, and to do something like Transnistria, again one of the frozen conflicts, but it will be much worse, because Transnistria has no border with Russia", - said Kuchma.

The second president of Ukraine noted that he does not see the prospects for resolving the conflict on the Donbas.

" I do not see the prospect of solving the Ukrainian-Russian conflict today , I do not see." Such actions do not have a chance to achieve peace in the region, "he said.

He also believes the meeting of US special envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker and Russian assistant Vladislav Surkov to be unproductive.

"29 points were proposed by the United States, Russia is ready to accept three points, and the fact that it (Surkov - ed.) Says" three are not zero "is zero," Kuchma said.

Russia is preparing a boycott for the Winter Olympics

on Fri Nov 17, 2017 2:54 pm
Russia is preparing a boycott for the Winter Olympics

Russian TV channels can completely refuse to broadcast the 2018 Olympics if the International Olympic Committee will remove the Russian national team from participating in the Games.

A possible boycott on the part of the three Russian TV channels with reference to their own sources reported "Vedomosti".

The 2018 Olympics in Russia are scheduled to broadcast "First Channel", "Russia 1" and "Match TV". However, according to Vedomosti, several interlocutors familiar with the situation, if the Russian team does not go to South Korea, "First" and "Russia 1" with a high probability will refuse to show the Games.

For the "First Channel" and "Russia 1" purchases of the 2018 Olympic Games will be economically unprofitable. The absence of Russian athletes at the Olympics will significantly reduce interest in broadcasts, and because of low ratings channels will not be able to earn on advertising. In addition, in such a situation, television channels will be difficult to keep Russian sponsors of Olympic broadcasts.

As for "Match TV," he, as a specialized sports channel, may be able to raise enough for himself without the participation of the Russian national team. However, according to another interlocutor of the publication, "Match TV" will probably also refuse to broadcast the Games.

In addition, it is noted that the decision on the boycott of broadcasts can be taken by the Russian authorities.

The decision on possible removal of Russia from the 2018 Olympic Games will take the IOC on December 5-6.
