Ukraine receives operational tactical weapons from the United States under several contracts, - Chaly



Ukraine buys operational-tactical weapons in the United States.

This was stated by Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to the United States Valery Chaly, reports Tsensor. NET with reference to Ukrinform .

"I can only say that all existing contracts are within the framework of international law, and Ukraine, as a country that duly fulfills the requirements of export control, has the right to purchase weapons. The list is broader but limited to tactical weapons, fatal in including, therefore, it was strange to hear some of our politicians that America does not provide weapons, but America is providing weapons, but this is an operational tactical weapon, which is the next step in deepening the interaction and, obviously, a more powerful signal for Russia, "the ambassador said.

According to Chaly, US President Donald Trump will sign a bill on the provision of $ 50m to lethal weapons this year, which has already passed Congress and the Senate.

"As far as the provision of more powerful lethal weapons is concerned, this is a separate decision that the president has to take, all the preparatory procedures that have been carried out today are a political decision and it will be taken taking into account the national interests of the USA. We hope that our arguments about the fact that, that the provision of such weapons before the presidential elections in Russia is very important and will become an additional lever of influence will be heard, "the ambassador said.

The Hague Tribunal considers Russia's participation in the war on the Donbas

on Tue Dec 05, 2017 1:07 pm
The Hague Tribunal considers Russia's participation in the war on the Donbas

The Prosecutor's Office of the International Criminal Court in The Hague considers the qualification of hostilities in the Donbass as an international conflict

This is stated in the results of the preliminary investigation of the events in Ukraine, outlined in the annual report of the ISC Prosecutor Fati Bensudi.

"The Office of the Prosecutor continues to consider claims that the Russian Federation exercised and exercises general control over armed groups in eastern Ukraine in order to determine whether this armed conflict could be considered as essentially an international conflict," the report said.

It is also noted that the existence of such a conflict implies the application of the articles of the Rome Statute relating to armed conflicts of an international character.

"The Office of the Prosecutor also provided additional information indicating the existence of a direct military confrontation between the armed forces of the Russian Federation and Ukraine," the prosecutor noted. Describing the escalation of the fighting in Ilovaysk in 2014 and in Debaltsevo in 2015, Bensuda also emphasizes that the increase in the intensity of hostilities "is explained by the possible influx from the Russian Federation of troops, vehicles and armaments to strengthen the positions of armed groups.

In addition, Bensuda refers to the preliminary disclosure of the assessment of events in the Crimea, qualified as "international armed conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation."

"The right to international armed conflict can be applied after March 18, 2014, to the extent that the Crimea and Sevastopol will actually retain the occupation," the report said.

Among the alleged crimes in the Crimea, Bensuda mentions disappearances and assassinations, including those allegedly committed by members of so-called "self-defense squads", cruel treatment of pro-Ukrainian activists, forced Crimean prize to the armed forces of the Russian Federation, oppression of the Crimean Tatars, seizure of property, displacement of the population Russia in the Crimea, and Crimeans - beyond the peninsula, and so on.

Bensuda said he would continue registering allegations of crimes.

The jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court includes crimes committed after the entry into force of the Rome Statute. The case "The Situation in Ukraine" is being investigated in the International Criminal Court on April 25, 2014.

The conflict between NABU and the GPO undermines the international trust of Ukraine - the US State Department

on Tue Dec 05, 2017 1:09 pm
The conflict between NABU and the GPO undermines the international trust of Ukraine - the US State Department

The US Department of State condemned the conflict between the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine and the National Anti-Corruption Bureau.

The State Department's statement states that the failure to investigate high-level corruption, the arrest of officials from the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) and interception of files, raise concern about Ukraine's commitment to fight corruption.

"These actions appear to be part of the efforts to undermine the independent anti-corruption institutions that the United States and other countries have helped. They undermine public confidence and undermine international support for Ukraine, "the statement said.

"It is inappropriate for Ukraine to fight for its body in the Donbass, if it loses its soul from corruption. Anti-corruption institutions must be supported, funded and protected, "said US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

The United States called on all branches of the Ukrainian government to work together to eradicate corruption in public life.

"Elimination of corruption is the key to achieving stability, security and prosperity for all Ukrainians," added the State Department.

On November 29, at the State Migration Service, they arrested the "agent" of NABU Titunkov during the attempt to hand over the bribe to the first deputy chairman of the DMS Dini Pimahovaya. The official of the State Migration Service denies extortion of a bribe to the agent of the NABU .

Law enforcement officials treat this incident differently: the Bureau claims that an important anti-corruption operation has been broken , and the Prosecutor General's Office considers it inadmissible that detectives are planned to provoke an official of the DMS to receive a bribe.

Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko said that the Prosecutor General's Office listened to the agent of NABU . NABU Director Artyom Sytnik, after meeting with Lutsenko, said that no one from the NABU would be detained after the operation in the Migration Service. At the same time, it was reported that there are no connections with seven NABU staff.

President Poroshenko called the conflict around NABA "Latin American Carnival".

Lutsenko later also said that agents of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau under the guise of hired to work in violation of the law. NABU considers the statements of Lutsenko "offensive on the independence of the body".

On December 4, two agents of NABU were summoned to the prosecutor's office for questioning.

Question in money: it became known about the split in the EU regarding the lifting of sanctions from Russia

on Tue Dec 05, 2017 1:12 pm
Question in money: it became known about the split in the EU regarding the lifting of sanctions from Russia

Ex-deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation Ilya Ponomariov pointed out two aspects in the context of the possible lifting of sanctions from Russia in the Council of Europe.

He said this in an interview with the "Apostrophe".

"First of all, indeed, Russia directly bribes a number of deputies, not only their pockets, but also the organizations they represent. Secondly, the issue of European voters: those countries that are closer to the east and who perceive this situation closely to the heart , believed that there are military and other threats, take on a more or less firm position: these are the Baltic States, Poland and Ukraine, of course. Countries that are far away (Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, to some extent France) are still the same", - said the deputy of the State Duma.

He noted that for such states in the first place are business issues.

"In all these countries, a strong trade union movement, which is not interested in global politics, how much and why Ukrainians perished, is not their issue. Their question is how many jobs they have and how much these jobs are loaded with orders. Russia is Europe's largest trading partner., respectively, the enterprises in which the members of these trade unions work are liable to damage from these sanctions, and therefore, in particular, the parties to the left of the spectrum, social-democratic organizations, and so on, which depend on these trade unions, say that they allegedly punished - and that's enough, let's go back to driving a normal business,"- said Ponomarev.

In Ukraine, they told how the ROC wanted to arrange a "trial" over the UOC-KP

The head of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchate, Patriarch Filaret, had an agreement with the heads of the Russian Orthodox Church that he would offer them eucharistic communication.

This was stated in the comments by the "Apostrophe" deputy chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Culture and Spirituality Victor Yelensky ("People's Front").

According to him, Filaret had to forgive the ROC, receiving a pardon in return, and all the controversy of the churches had to be forgotten.

"But they did what they did in Moscow, they always wanted to do something like a trial, and, of course, Filaret will not do this." In Moscow, it would be desirable for the Kyivan Patriarchate to return to the Moscow Patriarchate through repentance and use it later, as a powerful propaganda tool, but in Ukraine it will not go away, "he says.

Shakhtar's live broadcast of Manchester City will be available on Ukraine and Soccer 2. In Russia the game will show TV channel "Match TV".

To go to the next stage of the tournament, "miners" need to score at least one point in the game with unmotivated Englishmen. In the playoffs, Shakhtar can even hit even if defeated, but in this case, you need to hope for a false "Napoli" in a match with Feionordom.
