This is not an anecdote: Russia's speech at the UN about the situation in Ukraine was ridiculed in the network

This is not an anecdote: Russia's speech at the UN about the situation in Ukraine was ridiculed in the network

The network ridiculed the attempt by Russia and Syria to give Ukraine recommendations on human rights.

A whispered commentary was published by InfoWise Ukraine on Twitter.

"Within the framework of the UN Human Rights Council, Russia (!) And Syria (!) Have provided Ukraine (!) With respect to human rights! And this is not an anecdote!" - they wrote there.



Recall Sergei Petukhov, Deputy Minister of Justice of Ukraine on European Integration, about Russia's attempt to provide Ukraine with non-constructive recommendations on respect for human rights.

He said that Russia is using such actions for its propaganda purposes, and Syria recently "was concerned about the rights of the Russian Orthodox Church in Ukraine."

It should be noted that Ukraine is currently undergoing the Universal Periodic Review of Human Rights in the UN. Each member state of the United Nations undergoes such a procedure every 4.5 years.

Reuters pointed to the failure of Putin's plan to upgrade the political elite

on Mon Nov 20, 2017 12:27 pm
Reuters pointed to the failure of Putin's plan to upgrade the political elite

On the background of preparation for the fourth presidential term, Vladimir Putin began cleaning up the old Russian political elite, stating that it gives way to young people "with a fire in sight." However, as the analysis shows, in this regard, he managed to achieve very limited progress.

This writes agency Reuters.

As the agency's analysis shows, the age of the Russian government, the upper and lower chambers of parliament, the Security Council and the presidential administration is three years higher than at the start of the current Putin cadence in 2012.

Reuters compared the personal data of 784 current regional governors, members of the upper and lower chambers of parliament, government, the Security Council and the presidential administration, with personal data from 768 officials who were in power in May 2012.

Of the 784 officials, 314 changed positions in the last two years, while in May 2012 the figure was 368.

The average age of top officials in the RF has increased from 52.6 years in 2012 to 55.5 years. It is noted that in the Security Council, where Putin personally heads, the average age of officials remained at the level of 60.4 years.

In the presidential administration, the average age of employees is 57 years, compared with 53.2 years in 2012, and in the State Duma, the average age has grown to almost 53 of 51 years, compared with five years earlier.

"There is a resemblance to the era (Soviet leader Leonid) Brezhnev that we have fallen into pernicious stability, which has no way out," Russian political scientist Dmytro Oreshkin told the agency.

"There is no risk to Putin because the system is running and subordinate to him. There are risks for the country and the economy, the stability model is backed up by loyalty and corruption, outside of Moscow, which is rich, there is a stagnation," added Oreshkin.

Dictators do not retreat: Kasparov estimated the probability of a new exacerbation in the Donbas

Dictators do not retreat: Kasparov estimated the probability of a new exacerbation in the Donbas

Russian opposition political figure Gary Kasparov believes that Russian President Vladimir Putin does not retreat from the Donbas.

He reported this in an interview with the publication of Realist.

"He can not retreat, because the dictators do not retreat, so it is senseless to even discuss - Putin is ready to go on deeds. "The answer is not, "Kasparov says.

He also made the situation worse on the Donbass, as Ukraine plays an important role in the Kremlin's foreign policy.

"Therefore, further strengthening is very likely - the Ukrainian theme will always be present, a connection that is inseparable in the minds of Russian imperialism, and this consciousness requires constant replenishment in the form of a conflict with Ukraine, because independent Ukraine, European, democratic is the ultimate historical verdict for the Horde imperial", - said the opposition.

The media learned about large-scale hacker attacks of the Russian Federation against Poland

Russian hackers carry out 14,500 cyber attacks a day against Poland.

This is written by the Polish edition of Rzeczpospolita .

In particular, the publication draws attention to the use of cyber attacks by Russia in an attempt to influence the course of elections in the US and France, as well as the situation in Catalonia.

"This is just the beginning, in this confrontation there will be more and more dirty games," said Alexander Rar, one of the few Western experts who has access to the nearest constituents of the Russian President, Vladimir Putin.

The publication emphasizes that Russia's strategy in cyberspace is based on two pillars. On the one hand, social media, public opinion leaders, friendly internet portals, through which the Kremlin distributes fake information. On the other hand, Russian hackers steal strategic information and even try to paralyze the key security infrastructure of the state.

"Russia's potential in cyberspace is comparable to that of the United States and China, Moscow does not need a strong economy and can rely on cutting-edge information technology, and use it in a way that democratic countries can not afford," said Samuel Charap, an expert on Russia. corporation RAND.

The publication also emphasizes that over the past six months, Russia has spent 2.5 million cyber attacks against Poland.

In France, cultural figures have called for the release of Ukrainians Oleg Sentsov

In France, cultural figures have called for the release of Ukrainians Oleg Sentsov

An open letter was signed in France to release a Ukrainian film director, a political prisoner of the Kremlin, Oleg Sentsov.

The corresponding letter was published in Liberation.

Among the 58 people who called for Sentsov's freedom are artists, journalists, ambassadors, writers, directors, economists, historians, translators, etc. The letter was also signed by the leading program Gromadskoe.Svit Volodymyr Yermolenko.

"From June 14 to July 15, 2018, Russia will host a football championship. It would be wrong to spoil it. But we have to remind everyone - a footballer, fans, spectators - where they are going to go. In Russia, free press is not an exception, but an exception. Corruption is everywhere. In the artistic sphere, censorship is dominated, journalists and non-governmental organizations are being persecuted. Putin is preparing for the fourth term", - the statement says.

"On the eve of a possible re-election of Vladimir Putin and a major football championship it's time to give him (Oleg Sentsov - ed.) Freedom."

In August 2015, the Russian court ruled Oleg Sentsov and Alexander Kolchenko guilty of creating a terrorist organization in Crimea, committing two terrorist attacks and preparing another one, as well as attempting to purchase explosives and illegal possession of weapons.

Sentsova was sentenced to 20 years of colony, Kolchenko to 10 years imprisonment.

In November, it became known that Sentsov, being in the colonies of the Russian Federation, was very thin, poorly fed, and he had problems with the heart.
