US sanctions will remain in force until Russia returns the Crimea under full control of Ukraine and will not withdraw its forces from the Donbas, - Tillerson

Washington will retain sanctions against Russia until Moscow has given control over Ukraine to Crimea.

As Tsensor.NET informs with reference to "Interfax-Ukraine", US State Secretary Rex Tillerson said, speaking on Thursday at a meeting of the OSCE in Vienna.
"The sanctions related to Crimea will remain in force until Russia returns the Crimea under full control of Ukraine," he said.

"As for eastern Ukraine, we are joining our European partners in maintaining sanctions until Russia withdraws its forces from the Donbas and will not comply with the Minsk treaties," the US Secretary of State added.

Recall that on December 5 the Russian team was not allowed to Korea in the 2018 Olympics, and athletes from Russia, who are not involved in the use of doping, will be able to act under a neutral flag.

"Today there is no normalization of dialogue with Russia," Tillerson said

on Thu Dec 07, 2017 3:21 pm
"Today there is no normalization of dialogue with Russia," Tillerson said



US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will meet in Vienna on Thursday with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov against the backdrop of increasing pessimism about the prospects for US-Russia relations, which are suffering from disagreements over Ukraine, Syria and the scandal with Russian interference in the US elections.

Tillerson said on Wednesday that normal relations with Russia could not be sustained until Moscow ceases to support terrorists in Ukraine and will not return the Crimea, reports Tsensor.NET with reference to Voice of America.

Speaking to NATO, Tillerson said that "while continuing to use the means of the hybrid war, Russia is trying to disassociate Western institutions," meaning, under these means, a combination of computer-supported state-sponsored attacks and a campaign of misinformation on the Internet, which, according to intelligence services of NATO allies, directed against the West.

"This is a significant obstacle to the normalization of our relations," said the secretary of state in a conversation with journalists.

At a dinner with NATO ministers, Tillerson also accused Russia of interfering in the US election, a diplomat present at the meeting said.

In an interview with ministers, Tillerson stressed that the Ukrainian crisis, which arose as a result of the Crimean occupation in 2014, is a major problem on the road to improving US-Russian relations, as the capture of a sovereign territory is unacceptable, said the second diplomat present. The armed conflict in the Donbas, which began in 2014, has claimed the lives of more than 10,000 people. "People still die of this violence every day," Tillerson said.

Tillerson, who, being head of Exxon Mobil, received Putin's Russian Order of Friendship in 2013, expressed hope for an agreement on the deployment of UN peacekeepers in eastern Ukraine. Tillerson warned that there is still "a significant difference between the mandate that can be given to peacekeeping forces and the scope of this mandate."

"We hope that we can bridge this gap," Tillerson said.

Tillerson also warned that Russia should treat Russia as a partner, saying that all the meetings with Moscow should be based on certain problems, and they should not be conducted only in connection with some calendar terms.

"I think there is a broad consensus among NATO members that today there is no normalization of dialogue with Russia," he said.

"I will never go to those who lie" - the People's Deputy Chumak walked away from the live broadcast, after questioning cooperation with Saakashvili. VIDEO

on Thu Dec 07, 2017 3:25 pm
"I will never go to those who lie" - the People's Deputy Chumak walked away from the live broadcast, after questioning cooperation with Saakashvili. VIDEO

Non-factional MP Viktor Chumak has departed from the broadcast of the program "On Politics" on Espros after the presenter has asked him a few questions about his participation in the military actions of Mikheil Saakashvili.

According to Tsensor.NET, referring to Espresso.TV, the dispute in the studio arose after the presenter asked the people's deputy why he accompanied Saakashvili during his attempted detention by law enforcement officers rather than being at a meeting in the Verkhovna Rada. Then, Speaker Andriy Parubiy and vice-speaker Iryna Gerashchenko complained that there were not enough deputies in the Council to make decisions.

Before that, a question was asked about the participation of Chumak in the breakthrough of Saakashvili and his supporters of the Ukrainian border, which occurred at the Shegini checkpoint in September this year.

"You just distort the facts. I will not go here because you are a manipulative journalist. I went to the Consulate, but did not help Saakashvili," Chumak said.
When the leading program said that "Mr Chumak went along Mikheil Saakashvili and denied everything," the People's Deputy came up and left the studio. Going, he said that he would not go to journalists who allegedly lie.

US Secretary of State called Ukraine's issue the only obstacle to establishing relations with Russia

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called the issue of Ukraine the only problem that hinders the establishment of relations between Washington and Moscow.

This is reported by a Gromadsky correspondent from Vienna.

Tillerson made such statement after bilateral meetings with Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavel Klimkin and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at the margins of the annual meeting of OSCE foreign ministers.

"The issue of Ukraine is a problem that has become a real obstacle... Let's suppose, there are differences between us in other issues - for example, the issue of Syria. But when one country is invading another, then it's hard for us to ignore what has happened and achieve reconciliation, "Tillerson said.



Also in Vienna, Tillerson said that sanctions against the RF will remain in force until the return of the Crimea and the withdrawal of troops from the Donbas.

In turn, Sergei Lavrov said that the Russian side could stop working in the SCCM in the Donbass because of "unbearable conditions."

Earlier it was reported that the United States is ready to tighten restrictions on Russia in case of continued aggression in the east of Ukraine and in the annexed Crimea.

Russia is trying to create a mission that will interfere with the OSCE in the Donbas - Klimkin on UN peacekeepers

Russia is trying to create a mission that will interfere with the OSCE in the Donbas - Klimkin on UN peacekeepers

Russia in the issue of deploying a UN peacekeeping mission in the Donbas wants to create a mission in the region that would interfere with the work of OSCE observers.

This was stated by the Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin, responding to a question by journalist Gromadsky about talks between Putin's assistant Vladislav Surkov and US Special Envoy Kurt Volker.

"The talks are complicated because Russia is trying to create a" Bodigirdovian "mission as part of this mission - just to walk and interfere with the SMM so that they could not do what they are doing now. The second one - she really wants to leave there (on Donbas - ed.) Russian protectorate, without changing anything. The third - they try to manipulate in order to force us to talk with those whom they put there to power", - said Klimkin.



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 Donbass 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.

"Recruits from Novorossia are disposed of in Syria," - FSB Colonel Girkin



The ‘volunteer soldiers’ from the so-called ‘Donetsk and Luhansk Peoples Republics’ better known as ‘LPR’/‘DPR’ continue to leave for the war in Syria. Having the "passports" of the breakaway republics at best, they are deprived of all the rights and are used as cannon fodder.

Russian terrorist Igor Strelkov-Girkin wrote on social media, Censor.NET reports.
He said the commanders in Syria force the rightless mercenaries from the Donbas to pay them a tribute: for instance, the militant with the call sign Klunya, who also took part in battles in Ukraine’s east, ordered his detachment to pay him a 10-percent tribute threatening to expel those disobedient.

Girkin also said that the Vagner Private Military Company recruits two categories of fighters: ‘elite’ (for special operations) and ‘consumable’. The former mercenaries from the Donbas go to the second category.

"Employees of the Security Service of Ukraine established the place of former deputy and on the basis of a court decision detained him in the Zaporozhye region," the department emphasized.

The detainee was informed about the suspicion of an attack on the territorial integrity of Ukraine.
