Representatives of Arab countries held a protest rally under the US Embassy in Kyiv

on Fri Dec 15, 2017 12:11 pm
Representatives of Arab countries held a protest rally under the US Embassy in Kyiv



The US Embassy in Kyiv hosts a rally by Diaspora representatives from various Arab countries.

This is reported by the journalist Gromadsky.

According to the organizers, there are representatives from 22 Arab countries.



The participants of the action turned on loud music and prepared a petition, a protest note, which was handed over to the embassy. It contains in particular the slogan "Jerusalem - the capital of Palestine".

Artists paint a great picture of Trump and the Statue of Liberty and the national symbols of Israel and Palestine. The picture is also intended to be sent to the embassy.

The official start of the action at 14:00, at the site there are about 100 people, including families with young children.

Participants hold posters with inscriptions in Ukrainian, Arabic and English.



People are annoyed by Trump's decision regarding Jerusalem to be the capital of Israel. They say that this decision does not contribute to peace, but rather invites hostility.



"We demand apologies from the American people and the recognition of the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination," the head of the Palestinian delegation said.

Earlier, Israeli air forces  attacked  Hamas-based Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip in response to two Israeli missiles launched.

Earlier, it was reported that two people  were killed in Jerusalem and in the Palestinian Autonomous Territories as a result of battles between protesters and Israeli security forces  and at least 760 were injured.

The protests were provoked by the  decision of Donald Trump to postpone  recognition of the capital of Israel Jerusalem .

The decision has caused numerous protests around the world. Thus, in the Palestinian territory, in particular, the portraits of Trump were burnt, and the Hamas movement promised to arrange a "day of anger" on December 9th.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that the  issue of the status of Jerusalem  should be resolved in the interests of the Palestinian and Israeli sides.

The Palestinians consider the eastern part of Jerusalem to be its territory. Her Israeli army was repulsed in 1967 and annexed to the rest of the city by a resolution of the parliament in 1980.

The UN considers East Jerusalem to be an occupied territory, while the Israeli authorities consider it to be its own.

Putin gets rid of DPR-LNR: Russia has announced an interesting forecast for the Donbas

on Fri Dec 15, 2017 12:15 pm
Putin gets rid of DPR-LNR: Russia has announced an interesting forecast for the Donbas

To date, the main task of the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, is to gradually prepare the so-called DPR and LNR, if not to a total drain, then to some sort of compromise, mainly with the West.

Russian analyst Dmitry Oreshkin said this "Apostrophe".

"And he (Putin, ed) Gradually retreats, trying not to do it too sharply, because then there will be a cognitive dissonance. Then, to us (the Russians, "Apostrophe"), I think even will tell that in the" republics "is very ineffective management, corruption is too big - let's go to Ukraine. The "patriots" of the "DPR" and "LNR" look like the worst thing in this situation, of course, he said.

According to Oreshkin, the head of the Kremlin gradually begins to accustom public opinion that, in general, this burden is not pockety to the Russians and they do not want to kill the fraternal Ukrainian people. And to stop the bloodshed, you need to connect foreign observers. But this is all a work of public opinion.

"For four consecutive years, I said that Donbas will be in some kind of intermediate status - Transnistria type. Because returning it unconditionally to Ukraine, Putin can not without loss of face. Take Donbass under his patronage and into his territorial structure unconditionally he, again , can not, because it will be accompanied by very serious costs. Accordingly, now the question is, in what extent,"- says a political scientist.

Oreshkin stressed that one should not believe what Putin said. He does one thing, says another and thinks it's absolutely normal. His words, rather, mean some work with public opinion.

"He simultaneously gives signals that we will not join the Donbas and that the Ukrainian troops (on the occupied part of the east of Ukraine," the Apostrophe ") will not be allowed because there will be a massacre. And the most important signal is the peacekeeping force: he wants to act as a peacekeeper. it is quite natural, since for the past three years since the beginning of this campaign, Russia suffered very serious economic losses, and the population feels it, "he said.

A political scientist added that there is no resource in Putin's campaign - neither ideological nor political, financial, or even military. He can only maneuver what he does.

"Yes, there is some kind of backstage trade with the United States. Unfortunately for Putin, the United States understood that it was necessary to behave in a manner similar to that of Kim Jong Yin - to negotiate senselessly, we should press hard enough." Putin's very weak negotiating positions: over The "Buk" who came from Russia (accordingly, someone signed a document that sent this "Buk" from which the Boeing MH17 was shot down in the summer of 2014 in the Donbass) have been accused of interfering in elections in Europe and the United States (and they are made all plausible with each step)... "- summed up Oreshkin.

In Russia, they made an unexpected statement about Putin's love for Ukraine: they laugh at the network

Deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, leader of the "Fair Russia" party Sergei Mironov said that the Kremlin's leader Vladimir Putin has shown himself to be a great patriot of Ukraine than the president, Petro Poroshenko.

He said this in the propaganda program "Time will show" on Channel One.

So, he commented on Putin's answer to the questions of a Ukrainian journalist Roman Tsimbalyuk posed during an annual press conference.

"When the president responded to a journalist's question from Ukraine, his voice changed, so they talked about something native, about which the heart was hurt, he spoke about Ukraine, which was and will be for us a fraternal Slavic country. He is worried about her destiny with all my heart. and in response, he has shown himself to be a true patriot of Ukraine. Not Poroshenko, and even more so, Saakashvili (the leader of the Movement of New Forces party, editor-in-chief), is the patriots of Ukraine, and our president, who insures the soul for what is happening there, "said Mironov.



It is worth noting that his words were violently responding to the network.

"Please close the ears of those citizens of Ukraine who are reading it now, or stockpile with a pill/stick," wrote journalist Olena Ryktseva.

In the PACE, 20 countries opposed the return of the Russian Federation without its resolutions

on Fri Dec 15, 2017 12:23 pm
In the PACE, 20 countries opposed the return of the Russian Federation without its resolutions

Delegates from the 20 countries of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe signed a declaration "Protecting the values ​​of the Council of Europe and authority" regarding attempts to return Russia to the organization without implementing its resolutions of the PACE.

This was announced by head of the delegation of the Ukrainian parliament to the PACE Vladimir Ariev.

"It is regrettable in the text because certain forces in the Council of Europe are trying to undermine the credibility of the Assembly, in particular, the Council of Europe as a whole. The signatories also state that an attempt to undoubtedly restore the Russian delegation in rights - undermining the authority of the PACE and destroying the dominoes in the organization, and calling to stop this scenario, "Ariev wrote on Facebook.

Among the signatories are representatives from Slovakia, Denmark, Estonia, Georgia, Germany, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Moldova, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom and Ukraine.

At the end of November, the PACE Committee abandoned the debate on Russia's return.

Russia since 2014 almost does not participate in PACE meetings.

Initially, Russians could not go to Strasbourg through sanctions, and then stopped submitting their lists due to fears of prolonging sanctions.

In January 2016, Russia stated that it will pay only one third of the contribution , and "will look further."

The head of the Federation Council of the Russian Federation, Valentina Matviyenko, said that the payment to the CoE budget will depend on whether Russia will take part in the meetings.

In Russia, masked police arranged a massive beating of cafe clients: the network shocked the video

In the town of Yelets (Russian Federation) a special forces group broke into a cafe, attacking several people at the entrance.

This is reported by the Russian edition lenta.ru.

It is noted that the incident occurred on the night of November 18.

So, in the building, the siloviki laid all the men on the floor, beat them with their feet and handles of pistols, and also used electroshockers. As a result, all were sorted out, taken to the street, taken to the police station, and later released on their homes, without indicating the charges.

The edition specifies that the issue of beating of police citizens was discussed at a session of the Council of Deputies of the Lipetsk region. In particular, a member of the Committee on Legislation and Legal Affairs Pavel Yevgrafov expressed the opinion that the law enforcement agencies thus took revenge for a colleague who several weeks before suffered another institution as a result of the attack on members of the Gypsy Party.




An incident in the cafe is actively commenting on the network.

"Hold all the caverns!", "Not just so, for sure", "Well, if you scream - the face on the floor, and you do not lie, the result on the face", "At home, it is necessary to flush," - write on the Internet.
