Russia destabilizes the West through intrusions and cybernews, the British Foreign Office

on Sun Dec 17, 2017 3:30 pm
Russia destabilizes the West through intrusions and cybernews, the British Foreign Office

British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson accused Russia of destabilizing the West by invading, killing and attempting to intervene in Western elections

He told about the interview in The Sunday Times on the eve of his visit to Russia, reports Mail Online.

According to the minister, in the relations between Russia and the West there was a "moment of hope and change" at the end of the Cold War, but today this period seems "absolute illusion".

"Russia was not so hostile to Britain and Western interests since the end of the Cold War," the British diplomat said.

"In Crimea, the capture of part of a sovereign European territory of another state and its maintenance for the first time since 1945. Add their destabilizing actions in the western Balkans. We have practically Russian fingerprints in an attempt to attempt in Montenegro. Take a look at what they do with cyber-weapons, with an attempt to disrupt democratic processes in the UK, "Johnson said.

However, he added that he had not seen evidence of Russia's interference in the Brexit referendum campaign, but saw "Russian trolling on Facebook".

In this respect, I am ready to go until the withdrawal of my candidacy, "Sobchak said.

Zakharchenko got ready for the exit: it became known who Russia could put in the post of leader of the DPR

In place of the leader of the DPR terrorists, instead of Alexander Zakharchenko, four candidates are currently nominated, including Alexander Khodakovsky, Igor Bezler, Oleksandr Boroday and Denis Pushilin.

This is stated in the material "Apostrophe".

Oleksandr Khodakovsky is an ex-commander of the "East" battalion of militants, former "leader of the DPR" s security, and the leader of the separatist organization "Patriotic forces of Donbass." Now Khodakovsky positions himself as an opposition to Zakharchenko and is a protege of Russian security forces. After the transfer of curatorialism to the ORLO on the side the power block of the Russian Federation has a great chance to take Zakharchenko's place.

The second candidate is Igor Bezler (Bis) - the military commander of the escaped fighters. At the moment, it is in the occupied Crimea. The sources of the "Apostrophe" in the occupied Donbass believe that Bezler will return to Donetsk closer to the fall to take part in the "election". But his chances are not appreciated.

Alexander Borodai is also one of the contenders. Ex-Advisor Zakharchenko, a colleague of Khodakovsky, in 2014 - the so-called "head" of the Council of Ministers of the DPR ". At the moment, he is the head of the so-called" Volunteer Union of Donbass "(an organization that united militants who fought in the Donbass). believe that Beardai can become nominal leader, but "rule" will pass to Khodakovsky.

Another candidate is the head of the so-called People's Council of the Dnieper Denis Pushilin. The prose of Russian left forces and Russian nationalists. But at the moment the positions of the Russian left in the Donbass are unreliable.

The leader of the DPR is waiting for an unexpected future: the source revealed one of the options

The leader of the illegal armed formation of the "DPR" Alexander Zakharchenko can hold on to his current post, but will be controlled by the leaders of the so-called "LNR", who headed the formation after the armed coup.

About this in the comment "Apostrophe" told sources familiar with the situation.

Speaking about the possibility of a repeat in the occupied Donetsk scenario with the replacement of the leader, as it was in Luhansk, the interlocutors adhere to the version that Zakharchenko will leave as the leader of the militants. At the same time, it is assumed that it can go under the tacit control of the new "leadership" of the so-called "LNR".

For more information on how much a real permutation in the leadership of the so-called "DPR", as well as about who can take a leader in occupied Donetsk, read in the article "Apostrophe": Four candidates for the leader of the DPR: they say in Donetsk about the departure of Zakharchenko.

The words of Russian President Vladimir Putin about Ukraine are aired by his poor awareness on this topic.

This was written by Ukrainian journalist Denis Kazansky in his Twitter.

"I analyzed the fresh pressures of Putin, the part where it was about Ukraine." Judging by what he said, Putin is generally weakly oriented in our affairs, the knowledge of history is poor. "Lying sight," said Kazansky.



TRANSLATION:
Analyzed the fresh pressed Putin. The part where it was about Ukraine. Judging by the fact that it sounded, Putin is generally poorly oriented in our affairs. The knowledge of the history of squalor. Around lies and twitching. Sorry sight.

"And is there any kind of industry in which he is well oriented? Well, in addition to theft, of course!" "He offends to adequate Russians by simply staying in power. The trident and the university knocker, by the will of fate, crawl up," people write in the comments.

As reported by the "Apostrophe", social network users actively reacted to the proposal to put as a rival to the current Russian President Vladimir Putin in the upcoming election of the character of the cartoon "Swine Peppa".
