Tillerson called the alignment of the United Nations peacekeeping mission with the US priority on Donbas

on Wed Dec 06, 2017 2:29 pm
Tillerson called the alignment of the United Nations peacekeeping mission with the US priority on Donbas

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that the priority to resolve the conflict in the Donbas for the United States is to coordinate the deployment of a UN peacekeeping mission.

This is reported by DW.

Tillerson made such a statement before scheduled talks with the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov.

"Russia has long relied on the idea of ​​attracting peacekeeping forces, but now it has agreed", - quotes Secretary of State AFP.

Tillerson said that there are still "serious differences" with regard to the mandate of such a mission.

Earlier, Germany and the United States agreed on a UN peacekeeping mission in the Donbas.

Prior to this, the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, said that Russia admits the appearance of UN peacekeepers in the Donbas after coordination with the Ukrainian authorities, as well as militants.

Lavrov also said that Ukraine wants to make "occupation troops" from the peacekeepers for Donbas.

On November 10, it was reported that the United States would offer Russia to place 20,000 peacekeepers in the Donbas. The Kremlin has not confirmed the US proposal to place such a number of peacekeepers in eastern Ukraine.

"War" between Poroshenko and Saakashvili: important information about the position of the United States appeared

on Wed Dec 06, 2017 2:32 pm
"War" between Poroshenko and Saakashvili: important information about the position of the United States appeared

Former Georgian president and leader of the Movement of New Forces, Mikheil Saakashvili, can not rely not only on the promotion of Europe but also on the official support of Washington (the United States).

About this "Apostrophe" sources sources in diplomatic circles.

According to them, if in August-September American diplomats clearly articulated support for Saakashvili, and even rumored to have seen the breakthrough with their own eyes, now the Americans' signal to Saakashvili is not to break the boat. Actually, this was one of the reasons for Poroshenko's decision to start aggressive actions against the ex-head of the Odesa region.

Thus, the restrained reaction to the events of December 5 by the US Embassy in Ukraine was indicative : the diplomatic representation, in place of the protest over the actions of the security forces, confined itself to saying that the need for a fair trial over Saakashvili had to be complied with all the norms of Ukrainian legislation.

According to sources, the US "is not delighted" with the prospects of another revolution in Ukraine and is in favor of a political compromise, which may be subject to early parliamentary elections. So, we are talking about the indicative date of such elections - April 29, 2018. True, there is no official confirmation of this information.

At the same time, as with both politicians, American diplomacy always adheres to the principle of "a scumbag, but our scumbager". The situation for them, however, is complicated by the need for a choice between two politicians who swear allegiance to Washington and publicly brand Russia's President Vladimir Putin. Whom they support, have not yet been decided in the US.

At the same time, the diplomatic corps actively discusses the question of whether someone can take part in an election race and compete with Poroshenko.

The United States helped Ukraine identify 3.24 billion dollars. stolen funds - State Department



Representatives of the US State Department said that the US authorities had helped law enforcement officers in Ukraine discover more than $ 3 billion worth of stolen public funds.

This is stated in a statement on assistance in combating corruption in Nigeria, Sri Lanka, Tunisia and Ukraine, which is posted on the official website of the department, reports Censor. NET with reference to 112.

"US foreign assistance contributed to the removal of approximately $ 1.3 billion in cash in Ukraine, with more than $ 3.24 billion worth of stolen public funds found," the document said.

The statement also notes that US support has facilitated the opening of more than 300 criminal cases related to corruption. This was partly due to the fact that US law enforcement officials are involved in the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU).

The Ukrainian representative office of the American agribusiness company, Bunge was suspected of tax evasion

on Wed Dec 06, 2017 2:53 pm
The Ukrainian representative office of the American agribusiness company,  Bunge was suspected of tax evasion

Blogger Alexander Aronets believes that the subsidiary of the American agribusiness company Bunge in Ukraine operates under questionable tax evasion schemes that threatens Americans with a loud international scandal.

With this statement, he made his Facebook page, referring to the materials of the journalists' investigation" Voice of the People".

According to the blogger, schemes with fictitious VAT with the participation of about a dozen controlled companies are engaged in the general director of the company "Bunge Ukraine", the Russian businessman Dmitry Gorshunov and Roman Plits, who is the eldest son of Gennady Plisa, the first deputy of the Kiev mayor.

"The management of the Ukrainian" Bunge "bought up cash for cash through its own firm-gaskets, forming a fictitious tax credit with VAT, - explains the principle of the schemes Aronets. - And now controlled "Bunge" LLC "Santrade" and LLC "GreenTour-EX" expect illegal reimbursement from the state budget of 15 million UAH. VAT due to operations carried out under the control of Roman Plis Ltd. "Vargo treyd" (code USREOU 39057321) and LLC "Delta MB" (code EDRPOU 3770539).

Aronets adds that the leadership of Bunge Ukraine, fully aware of the criminal nature of its actions, also seeks to recover fictitious VAT.

"Taking into account, to put it mildly, these dark schemes, the leaders of the Ukrainian" Bunge "are not ashamed to press the DFS through the American Chamber of Commerce (ACC) and the European Business Association (EAA) through the US embassy, ​​demanding that they refund their fictitious VAT. There is a logical question: at the headquarters of the "Bungee" it is known that their Ukrainian representatives are making up?"- asks the blogger.

He also notes that Gennady Plius, during the time of Yanukovych, served as Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the State Food and Grain Corporation of Ukraine and very well-informed on corrupt schemes in the agrarian market.

"Of course, there is no sensation that the family of Plits deals with solving some kind of dark issues in the agrarian market. Gennady Plius for Yanukovych was chairman of the Supervisory Board at the State Food and Grain Corporation of Ukraine (CPZKU). This is probably one of the most corrupt structures in a country where everything was steal and always - on it, NABU opened a record number of cases, "writes Aronets.

According to him, at the headquarters of the Bunge corporation, one should have asked why Dmitry Gorshunov took up the son of Gennady Plisa, who may be subject to anti-corruption laws of the United States.

"All Bunge employees, according to anti-corruption policies outside the United States, are subject to US anti-corruption laws. In addition, the website of the company posted a code of ethics for employees. Is the Bunge headquarters known that Dmitry Gorshunov took up his son PoliticallyexposedPerson, whose father worked in the state "grain" operator with a regulator function? Was there a check on the subject of conflict of interests?"- said Alexander Aronets.

The blogger also urged the headquarters of the Bunge Corporation to assess the way of life of its employee, Roman Plis.

"Does Bunge's management feel embarrassed by the life of a 27-year-old specialist specialist in the Ukrainian Bungue office, who probably has no third-party income, worked for several years first as an intern and then as an expert in trade, but while traveling on a AudiS8 car worth about 150 thousand euros? The headquarters of the corporation should as soon as possible address these issues. Otherwise, the story may end for the "Bunge" with a loud international scandal, "Aronets concludes.

The Czech Premier ignored the meeting with the pro-Russian president and "resigned"

on Wed Dec 06, 2017 3:07 pm
The Czech Premier ignored the meeting with the pro-Russian president and "resigned"

Instead of personally transmitting his application for the resignation of the Czech
President, Milos Ziemann, Prime Minister Bogusław Sobotka sent her a post


This is reported by the Czech edition Aktualne .

Traditionally, the head of government comes to the residence of the president, which is located in Prague, and passes the application. Sobotka became the first who has not done this for the past 40 years.

Today, the current Czech government held its last meeting. The Prime Minister thanked the ministers for his work and added that he is looking forward to a certain calm after four years of tireless work.

President of the Czech Republic, Milosz Zeman, will immediately appoint Andrei Babis as prime minister after receiving a statement on the release of Sobotka. Babysh is a billionaire entrepreneur, a populist politician of the anti-European direction.

The disagreement between the Czech government and the president of the country, Milos Zeman, is explained by the pro-Russian views of Zeman. He offered Ukraine to sell the Crimea of ​​Russia and insisted on lifting sanctions against Russia. In response, the Czech Senate issued a ruling in which he condemned the words of the president.

In the documents of Paradise Papers there are 68 Ukrainians

on Wed Dec 06, 2017 3:27 pm
In the documents of Paradise Papers there are 68 Ukrainians

55 men and 13 women of Ukrainian citizens appear in the international investigation on offshore Paradise Papers.

This is the case in the analytical system YouControl, reports DW.

Thus, out of 57 offshore companies owned by Ukrainians, 27 are registered in the British Virgin Islands, 11 are in Bermuda, 7 are in Malta, 4 are in the Isle of Man, 3 are in the Cayman Islands, 3 are in the Seychelles, 1 is in Britain and 1 - on the island of Jersey.

It is reported that two thirds of Ukrainians-founders of offshore Paradise Papers are managers or owners of Ukrainian companies working in the financial, investment, agrarian, pharmacological, transport, energy and IT sectors.

Analysts YouControl write that offshore is used as a group of companies engaged in heavy industry and large-scale production, as well as small startups, which develop computer programs.

Earlier it was reported that Oxford and Cambridge invested tens of millions of pounds in offshore.

On November 5, at the same time, four hundred journalists in sixty seven countries published their materials on the financial secrets of those in power.

The Investigation.Info team, as an official partner of the OCCRP, joined this international project and found in the documents more than a dozen Ukrainian surnames.

Based on the analysis of documents, journalists came to the conclusion that the creation by President Poroshenko of the offshore structure of Roshen Corporation in 2014 was aimed at minimizing taxes, rather than transferring corporations to a blind trust.

"We partly blame ourselves because they gave us an excuse," Putin said on the decision of the IOC on Russia

on Wed Dec 06, 2017 3:30 pm
"We partly blame ourselves because they gave us an excuse," Putin said on the decision of the IOC on Russia



Russian President Vladimir Putin said Russian authorities would not mind if some of the athletes would want to go to the Games in Korea separately.

Reported Tsenzor.NET with reference to Interfax.

"We will, without any doubt, declare no blockade, we will not prevent our Olympians from participating (in Games) if any of them wants to take part in personal qualities," the head of state said during a conversation with the workers of the Gorky Automobile Plant.

On the eve of the Executive Committee of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) decided to suspend the membership of the Russian Olympic Committee (OCR), and at the Winter Olympics in 2018, only "clean" Russian athletes will be able to act in Pyongyang under a neutral flag. That is, those whom the IOC alone will allow.

Vladimir Putin said that Russia itself gave a reason for the decision of the IOC concerning the Olympic team, but this reason was not quite honestly used.
"First of all, we must say that we are to some extent guilty of it, because they gave us an excuse for this, and secondly, I think that this reason was used not quite honestly, to put it mildly," Putin said.

So he answered the question about what will happen to the Russian Olympians during the communication with the GAZ workers on Wednesday.

According to Putin, "not quite honest" because the principle of collective responsibility was used.

Recall December 6, the IOC decided to prevent the Russian team at the 2018 Olympics in Korea. Russian athletes will be able to make a neutral flag.
The IOC has decided on the basis of the work of two commissions, one of which - led by Denis Osvald - was testing doping tests of Russian athletes from the Olympics in Sochi. As a result of her work, she lost 11 awards and lost her first place in the team. The second commission headed by ex-president of Switzerland Samuel Schmidt inspected information about possible state interference in the Russian anti-doping system. Both commissions began work after the WADA investigation under the leadership of Richard McLaren on the substitution of doping tests by Russian athletes with the participation of the FSB.

Also, the decision of the IOC, Vice Prime Minister of Russia, Vitaly Mutko has been permanently removed from the Olympic Games.

11 NATO countries protest Hungary by blocking Euro-Atlantic initiatives of Ukraine

on Wed Dec 06, 2017 3:40 pm
11 NATO countries protest Hungary by blocking Euro-Atlantic initiatives of Ukraine

Eleven NATO member states, including Germany, expressed disagreement with Hungary's actions to block Euro-Atlantic initiatives of Ukraine through a resonant law on education in the part of national minorities.

This was reported by the Hungarian edition Magyar Nemzet, reports Tsensor.NET with a link to Liga.net.

According to unofficial information, 11 states "clearly made it clear" that this conflict should not be placed on the plane of NATO.

The letter emphasizes that the countries do not consider this issue so significant as to prevent Ukraine from promoting its full membership in the Alliance.

The report notes that high-level controversy over Ukraine is seen as a success for Russia.

Recall that on September 5 the Verkhovna Rada adopted a law on education, which begins the reform of education in Ukraine. On September 25, President Petro Poroshenko signed the Law "On Education", adopted by the Verkhovna Rada.

The law, among other things, determines that the language of the educational process in educational institutions is the state language. The new edition of the Law "On Education" stipulates that children who go to school from September 1, 2018, will have the opportunity to study in their native language only in elementary school - the first four years. From the fifth grade all subjects must be taught in Ukrainian. Persons belonging to national minorities are guaranteed the right to study in their mother tongue, in addition to the Ukrainian language, in separate classes (groups) of communal institutions of pre-school and primary education. At the same time, representatives of national minorities, who began their studies at the school by 2018, will continue to receive it according to the old norms, with a gradual increase in the number of subjects in Ukrainian.

Reservations against him were expressed by Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Russia and Moldova.

the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Romania expressed concern about the law on education adopted by the Verkhovna Rada, and Hungary stated that it would cease to support Ukraine on the international scene. The head of the Ministry of Human Resources of Hungary, Zoltan Balog, addressed a letter to the Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine Lilia Grinevich and asked for a personal meeting to discuss the new law on education. Later, the Hungarian parliament unanimously passed a resolution condemning the Ukrainian law on education, indicating violations of the rights of Hungarians in Transcarpathia. The Federation Council and the State Duma of Russia also opposed the Ukrainian law on education.
On September 28, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine sent the Law "On Education" for examination to the European Commission for Democracy through Law (Venice Commission).

On September 28 the Law "On Education" came into force.
