Loud killings and the situation on the Donbas: in the USA the forecast for Ukraine for 2018 was announced

In 2018, there may be reshuffles in Ukraine and even early elections.

This is reported in the 2018 forecast by the private American intelligence and analytical company Stratfor, which is at the disposal of the "Apostrophe".

"The New Year will bring its share of activity and instability to Ukraine, so the country will hold 2018 in preparation for the presidential and parliamentary elections to be held in 2019. This will be the first election after the early voting after the mass protests on Maydan in 2014 With the approaching 2019 elections, protests and rotations in the government are likely to be possible, and early elections are possible, "analysts said.

Stratfor also predicts the preservation of the pro-Western course of Ukraine next year and continued support from the United States.


"But Ukraine will not deviate from its pro-Western course, since it will survive one more year of the war in the east. Although the United States and Russia will go on to negotiate a conflict in the Donbass and may even progress on the issue of UN peacekeepers, the decision will remain inaccessible in the broader sense. 2018. As a result, Ukraine will continue to receive political, economic and security assistance from the US and its Western partners, while it will seek to further integrate with Poland and the Baltic States in the areas of the econ blacksmiths, energy and security, "analysts say.

However, Stratfor predicted political assassinations organized by Russia: "Meanwhile, Russia activates its hybrid military campaign - supposes cyberattacks and noisy killings - against Ukraine and its supporters."

Russia has warned Japan of the deployment of American anti-missile systems

on Thu Dec 28, 2017 4:17 pm
Russia has warned Japan of the deployment of American anti-missile systems

Russia states that Japan's decision to place US missile defense systems "will negatively affect bilateral relations", in particular, negotiations on signing a peace treaty

This was stated by the spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia Maria Zakharova, reports TASS.

Russia believes that the deployment by Japan of American missile defense systems Aegis Ashore is "a step towards the establishment of the Asia-Pacific regional segment of the global US missile defense system" and violates the US commitment to an agreement on the elimination of medium and short-range missiles.

Read also: DPRK launched a rocket at a crazy height of 4,500 kilometers. She will fly to all US states

On December 19, the government of Japan decided to place two American missile defense systems in the Aegis Ashore in the north and southwest of Honshu's main island in 2023, which should protect the country from ballistic and cruise missiles. These US production facilities will cost about 100 billion yen (about $ 890 million) each.

Earlier, in September, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that together with Russian President Vladimir Putin they had come to a decision to sign a peace treaty between the countries that had not been signed since World War II.

-Recall that on November 28, North Korea launched another launch of a ballistic missile in the eastern direction - the first of September 15.

-Japan, on the eve of a new launch, detected radio signals indicating that North Korea was preparing for these trials.

-Japan already wants to buy missiles that can hit the DPRK.

When Ukraine can get lethal weapons from NATO. Explanation of the Head of Mission in the Alliance

When Ukraine can get lethal weapons from NATO. Explanation of the Head of Mission in the Alliance

As soon as US President Donald Trump decides to provide Ukraine with lethal weapons, other countries will rely on similar decisions.
This was stated by the head of the mission of Ukraine to NATO Vadim Prystaiko, reports Ukrinform .

According to Pristya, Ukraine has long been in need of assistance, including anti-tank and anti-aircraft complexes. But each state individually for various reasons still can not dare to take this step.

But the head of the mission is confident: as soon as the decision is approved by Trump, other countries will do the same.

"There will be a decision by the administration of Donald Trump - other governments do not get bored," Pristyako said.

-On November 6, the US Senate voted to approve the defense budget for 2018, which, in particular, provides $ 350 million for the defense needs of Ukraine.

-After that, the US Senate, member of the armed forces committee, James Inhoff, sent a letter to US President Donald Trump calling for the harmonization of the provision of Ukraine's defense-related lethal weapons.

-On December 12, Trump signed a defense budget with $ 350 million in aid to Ukraine.

-On December 21, the US Department of State confirmed the permission of the administration of President Donald Trump to commercially sell American lethal weapons to Ukraine.

-Canada allowed to sell lethal weapons to Ukraine. The Canadian parliament says they can now sell Javelin missiles to Ukraine.

Analysts estimated the probability of the UN peacekeepers in the Donbas

on Thu Dec 28, 2017 4:22 pm
Analysts estimated the probability of the UN peacekeepers in the Donbas

Experts from the analytical center "Ukrainian Institute of the Future" estimate the probability of a UN mission in the Donbas in 2018 at 30-40%.

This is reported by "Today".

It is noted that very important will be not only the fact of the beginning of its work, but also the format, national composition and sources of its functioning.

"We estimate the likelihood of the UN peacekeepers arriving in the Donbas in 2018. We are confident that the process of getting out of the conflict will go along the path of the greatest resistance of the parties, which means that the decisions made next year will be able to lead to its freezing , and not to the final resolution of the conflict, "said Igar Tyshkevych, a program of international and domestic policy at the Ukrainian Institute for the Future analytical center.

Also, the expert believes, a high probability will be in the scenario of delaying time - 70-80%.

"The Ukrainian ruling elite is afraid to take drastic steps that can change the existing status quo, so Ukraine depends on external players playing the Ukrainian card based on their interests," Tishkevich outlined the situation.

He believes that Russia, the US and the EU are also happy with this option, because then no one will worsen their positions.

Russian propagandists launched a new fake about captured Ukrainians

Russian propagandists launched a new fake about captured Ukrainians

Russian propagandists launched a new fake about supposedly Ukrainian prisoners of war who refused to exchange and remained on the territory of the so-called Donetsk People's Republic ("DPR").

This is reported by OstroV.

Thus, in the plot of the Russian "First Channel" shot in the colony of the occupied Makiyivka, one of the prisoners, allegedly a former Ukrainian soldier of the 56th separate motorized infantry brigade, Alexander Takhtenkov declared refusal to leave the "DPR" and his decision to stay there to live and work as a locksmith.

"There is a lot of work here ... It's better here ... I just informed my mother that I am staying in the DPR," said the man.

It is noted that at the same time, according to the media version of the terrorists, a prisoner who refused to leave the "DPR", was not a man with the name Tahtenkov, and a woman.

This information was confirmed by Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine Angela Strizhevska.

"From those whom we took from an uncontrolled territory, one woman refused to return to the territory controlled by Ukraine, said she has a pro-Ukrainian position, but the family in Donetsk, therefore, remains," she said.

Also in the plot of Russian propagandists is shown another allegedly former ATO fighter who agreed to return to Ukraine for exchange, but "to fight for Poroshenko no longer intends."

Represented man as "a former sniper of the sabotage and intelligence group of the Aidar battalion, Alexander Aysin. However, the list of transferred to Ukraine does not include a contract with such a surname.

Specifies that the author of the plot is Julia Chumakova - the same journalist who had previously created a scandalous plot about the "Crucified Boy" in Slavyansk.

Simonenko was elected judge of the new Supreme Court, despite the conclusions of the Council of Integrity

The High Council of Justice recommends that the President appoint Valentyn Simonenko as a judge of the new Supreme Court.

This was announced by lawyer Roman Maselko.

Earlier, the Public Council of Integrity vetoed the election of Simonenko to the new Supreme Court because she often visits Russia annexed to the Crimea, and her sister works in the legislative assembly of Sevastopol.

In addition, according to the council of integrity, Simonenko's husband supported and developed business relations in Crimea after the annexation.

Simonenko also found a lot of grammatical mistakes in the letter of motivation.

The public council of integrity demanded a re-examination of the electronic declaration of the candidate.

On December 21, the old Supreme Court did not stop working because of the lack of a quorum. The old and new Supreme Courts are two different structures. As part of the predecessor (Supreme Court of Ukraine), now, at the time of transfer of cases to the successor, there are only 14 current judges. In the new court, 120 representatives of Themis are elected (113 are already appointed by the president's decree).

On November 30, Valentyn Danyshevskaya became the chairman of the new Supreme Court .

The new Supreme Court should begin its work on December 15 . At the moment of the work of the new Supreme Court, the old Supreme Court, the Supreme Administrative Court, the Supreme Commercial Court and the High Specialized Court for the Examination of Civil and Criminal Cases are discontinued.

On November 11, 113 judges of the new Supreme Court took an oath . They were appointed by President Poroshenko, who signed the decree.

This is a mockery: ex-investigator WADA criticized IOC decisions on Russian athletes at the 2018 Olympics

Ex-investigator of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Jack Robinson criticized the decision of the International Olympic Committee to allow Russian athletes to participate in the 2018 Olympics under a neutral flag.

In his article for New York Times, Robinson said that 99% of Russian athletes are taking doping.

"The decision of the IOC on Russia is not a punishment but a mockery, in order to protect Russia's commercial and political interests." During our investigation, we found that 99 per cent of Russian athletes accept doping. "We realized that as soon as the Russian the athlete falls into the national team, he simply has no choice - either doping or the end of a career, "- said Robinson.

"The punishment of the IOC for Russia is an entire farce, which means that clean sportsmen will compete again with the doping team in Pyeongchang-2018. Years will pass before we learn about the true champions and prize-winners of the Games 2018. And they will again receive their medals by mail. cases of doping in Pyongchang-2018 or not, but they will definitely be there.

Russia has not only failed to admit its guilt, but continues to use doping even during the investigation. All evidence suggests that the doping system is still working. And the IOC knows it. The IOC decision in Russia forever tarnished the Olympic Charter, "WADA ex-investigator also said.
