It's time to suspend Russia's membership in Interpol - HCM CEO Browder

on Sat Dec 30, 2017 3:08 pm
It's time to suspend Russia's membership in Interpol - HCM CEO Browder



William Browder, the founder of Hermitage Capital Management (HCM), called on Russia to suspend Russia's membership in Interpol for "unacceptable abuses" by the mechanisms of work of this international organization.

This British financier wrote on Friday, December 29, in his microblog Twitter, and informs Tsensor.NET.

According to Browder, Russia has appealed to Interpol for the seventh time after his arrest, "after the previous five requests have been rejected as illegitimate and politically motivated."

Earlier, the representative of the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation, Mikhail Reznichenko, said that the agency was preparing another request for the announcement of a businessman for international search and his extradition to Russia.

This move is due to the fact that the Tver District Court of Moscow on December 29th again in absentia sentenced Browder to nine years imprisonment for "deliberate bankruptcy and tax evasion." For the first time in the indictment, the amount exceeded 522 million rubles, now - 3.5 billion rubles.

In October 2017, Russia has already requested the arrest of Browder in the Interpol base, after which the businessman canceled the US visa. However, after review, Interpol has deleted the request, and the US has resumed the permission document.

Hermitage Capital Management from 1995 to 2006 was one of the largest foreign investment funds in the Russian stock market. In 2007, the prosecutor's office suspected his subsidiaries of tax evasion. After the searches at the company, the lawyer of the fund Sergey Magnitsky accused the officials of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the prosecutor's office of using the materials they received to steal over $ 230 million from the state.

In response, the prosecutor's office accused Magnitsky of dodging taxes. He was arrested and died at the SIZO in November 2009 at the age of 37. In 2012, the United States adopted the "Magnitsky Law", which initially extended to lawyers involved in a SIZO, and then to other individuals responsible for gross violations of human rights.

Russia wants Ukraine to be part of a large Russian orbit, Volker

on Sat Dec 30, 2017 3:12 pm
Russia wants Ukraine to be part of a large Russian orbit, Volker

In Russia, they want to preserve the influence over Ukraine in the context of the ideology of the "great Slavic family" and make Kyiv part of a large Russian orbit

This was stated by a special representative of the US State Department for Ukraine Kurt Volker in an interview with the Russian radio station "Echo of Moscow" .

"I think that Russia wants Ukraine to be part of a large Russian orbit, a part of a large Slavic family, had good relations with Russia and a government that is friendly to Russia. But ironically, the output is exactly the opposite. more skeptical about Russia, more nationalistic and pro-Western than ever, "Volker said.

"I would like to see the world in Ukraine in 2018. And this requires from Russia the withdrawal of troops, armaments and any support from the Donbas, but this requires security guarantees. It takes time and safe space to meet the requirements of the Minsk treaties: hold local elections, hold an election campaign, so that the Verkhovna Rada begins the process of amnesty, so that the special status of the regions for which the Council has already voted was carried out after the elections, for all this, peacekeeping forces are needed in the Donbass, "he added.

"Russia demands that Ukrainians interact directly with proxy forces in Lugansk and Donetsk, which in fact have no relation to these regions, these groups have no basis or legitimacy, and even under the terms of the Minsk agreements, these forces must be disbanded , and normal state administration has been restored. There should be regular elections to oblast authorities and all along with the special status of the regions, which was previously approved by the Ukrainian parliament, "the politician noted.

"We want to see the restoration of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity, security and protection for all citizens of Ukraine, regardless of nationality, ethnicity or religion, and on a more fundamental level, as President Trump stated many times, we want peace," Volker said, answering to the question of what the administration of the US president is seeking for Ukraine.

Asked about the status of the Crimea, he replied: "We do not recognize the seizure of Crimea by Russia, its declared annexation. Fortunately, there are no active military actions in the Crimea, as in the Donbass, so we need to focus on solving problems in the places where fighting is taking place. ... With the Crimea, I think we have a long period of discrepancy over its status. "

Earlier, Kurt Volcker called the decision of Washington to provide Ukraine with weapons to lift Obama's restrictions.

Russia provoked another diplomatic scandal from the United States

Russia refused to issue a visa to a member of the US Congress delegation, Senator Democrat Jean Shakhin, after which Republican senators Ron Johnson and John Barras canceled their trip to Russia, scheduled for January 11th.

This was reported by DW with reference to the American edition of Politico.

The Russian embassy refused to issue a visa, explaining its decision by the fact that Shakhin is in the black list, drawn up in response to US sanctions.

In response, Johnson, who is also chairman of the Senate Committee on National Security and Government Affairs, said that the decision to deny a member of the Senate delegation is "extremely unfortunate and contrary to attempts to improve relations between our countries."

Shahin remarked that "he regrets the decision of the Kremlin to prevent the dialogue between the Senate and the Russian people," but "will continue its work aimed at ensuring that the Russian government was held accountable for its actions carried out in violation of international law and to the detriment of the Russian people."
