Trump and Putin should sign a treaty: Gorbachev reminded of a nuclear war

Trump and Putin should sign a treaty: Gorbachev reminded of a nuclear war

Presidents of Russia and the United States must personally address the problem of the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range Missiles, signed between Moscow and Washington in 1987.

This was stated by former USSR president Mikhail Gorbachev, reports Kyodo news.

He considers the Treaty of the RSMD to be the most important document signed in the era of the Cold War. A former politician reminded that the document played an important role in weakening the conflict between the countries.

Gorbachev calls on Putin and Trump to instruct foreign ministries and defense ministers to resolve a problem that, in his opinion, is "mostly technical."

Rejection of the Treaty will harm the whole process of nuclear disarmament, the former leader of the Soviet Union said.

"The Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Small-Range Missiles, the Agreement between Ukraine and the Russian Federation on the Further Measures to Reduce and Limit Strategic Offensive Arms (START-III) and the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons are a single whole, and without one of them they will completely destroyed", - added Gorbachev.

Earlier, the United States received documents confirming that Russia places prohibited nuclear weapons, writes Der Spiegel. It is about rocket carriers of nuclear weapons range from 500 to 5500 km. The contract of the RSMD prohibits their placement.

The United States intends to secure from the RF guarantees of compliance with the provisions of the document, and in other cases allow the introduction of new sanctions against Moscow.

As The Observer wrote, the New York Times, referring to sources in the administration of the US president, said that Russia secretly deployed new cruise missiles ground-based in the south of the country.

Moscow denies allegations and claims that the treaty is being violated by the American side.

The Ukrainian-American billionaire told how Trump Tower might appear in Kyiv

on Sat Jan 06, 2018 12:28 pm
The Ukrainian-American billionaire told how Trump Tower might appear in Kyiv



In Kyiv, they planned to build an analogue of the Trump Tower building, located on Fifth Avenue in New York

The Trump Tower building was not built in the center of Kiev due to the fact that the world-renowned architect Norman Foster, who was invited to implement the project, lost the Ukrainian competition for the construction of a German company. The story of this incident was told by the Ukrainian-American billionaire Mark Ginzburg to Glavkov.

"I am one of the three co-owners of the famous land on Khreshchatyk near the Dnipro Hotel (on European Square). In 2007, we received permission to build a large hotel and residential complex, the reconstruction of European Square and the construction of a four-storey car park near Khreshchatyk from European Square to Maidan. This was preceded by four years of collecting tons of documents. Given that it is the central street of the capital, the developer did not have the right to take the architect at his discretion. Therefore, an open Ukrainian competition was announced, in which not only Ukrainian architects, but also international companies participated. Looking ahead, I will say that the well-known German company Eller + Eller Architekten won "- begins the story of Ginzburg.

As the businessman remarks, he is very fond of the Trump Tower building, located on Fifth Avenue in New York: "This building is somewhat" cold ", black, glass, but exquisite and stylish. I saw several projects by the architects of Trump, they were also my heart. So I decided to build a Trump Tower in Kyiv. I got acquainted with Donald Trump, during the first meeting I just talked about myself, gave some recommendations. After that, he appointed me another meeting. She lasted for several hours, made an excursion throughout the building and even showed me his apartment. Finally, he said that he agreed to give the building his name, but provided that it was designed by his friend-architect. I replied that it is not in my power to arrange it, his friend will have to take part in the competition on a general basis. He laughed, plucked me on the shoulder and said: "boy, You are kidding? Which contest? My friend is Norman Foster."

Ginzburg emphasizes that Norman Foster is the most famous architect in the world. This Briton is one of the founders of high-tech style. Among his most famous works are the World Trade Center in New York, the Reichstag in Berlin, the Wembley Stadium in London, one of London's most famous buildings, known as the Cucumber, the St. Mary's Ex: The Skyscraper, the world's largest transport bridge, Viaduct Miyou France, Hong Kong International Airport and dozens of other prominent buildings around the world.

A businessman is proud to bring Norman Foster to Kyiv for the first time. "To meet him, if you just look at him, many of the architects of Kiev came to touch him. It was a furor, "he says.

But Ginzburg and his team did not build the Trump Tower. "Sir Foster lost the competition to a German company. In addition, the name Trump Tower cost us very much, as it seemed at that time. Who could know that he will fly 9 years and he will become the president of the United States", - summed up the businessman.

"We need to make progress in Ukraine. Having said that, we have found areas of cooperation in Syria that are approaching the defeat of IDIL in Syria," Tillerson said.

"Therefore, we are trying to focus on really big problems between us, which is Syria, and the situation there, the situation in Ukraine and Eastern Europe, as well as stabilization in Eastern Europe and understanding of what worries Russia. And we have very important negotiations for the Treaty. about the START and the agreement on RSMD", - Tillerson noted further issues concerning the Russian Federation.

Britain is not yet considering the possibility of a no-fly visa with Ukraine

Great Britain does not see opportunities for visa liberalization with Ukraine in the near future

This was stated by British Ambassador to Ukraine Judith Hoff in an interview with the publication  "New Time"

According to her, among other things, this issue is complicated by the recent precedent, when the passport of a citizen of Ukraine illegally received a citizen of another state - the one who shot the Chechen volunteers ATO Adam Osmayev and Amin Okuyev.

"We are now waiting for a proper investigation into this fact to ensure that the visa issuance process in Ukraine is safe and secure, since otherwise liberalization already threatens the UK and the security of its citizens," said Judith Hoff.

Recall that immediately after the first assassination attempt on Adam Osmayev and Amin Okuyev in Kyiv on June 1, People's Front People's Deputy and member of the Interior Ministry Anton Gerashchenko claimed that the killer who attacked them received Ukrainian documents in February 2016.

"Literally within five days he has drawn up for himself and a passport of a citizen of Ukraine, and a passport, and a certificate on the identification code", - argued Gerashchenko.

It was also reported that immediately after the assassination attempt, a Ukrainian foreign passport was found on the killer.

Sanctions Against RF: US Private Investigation Discusses New Instruments Of Western Impact on The Kremlin

Sanctions Against RF: US Private Investigation Discusses New Instruments Of Western Impact on The Kremlin

New sanctions in the United States may include a ban on the purchase of government bonds of Russia, which is able to force other Western countries to refuse to buy state debt of the Russian Federation.

This is stated in the material of the private American intelligence-analytical company Stratfor, which is at the disposal of the "Apostrophe".

However, analysts noted, this measure may not affect the change in the Kremlin's foreign policy.

"If the United States imposes sanctions on Russia's sovereign debt, it could scare away other Western investors outside the United States from buying Russian Eurobonds." In mid-December, the RF Ministry of Finance stated that the government would not issue bonds before the February report. Moscow has enough connections outside the West to secure the acquisition of future debt. In recent years, Russia has spent its efforts to strengthen its relations in other regions to alleviate the pressure from the West. Therefore, extended sanctions against Russia sovereign debt would be an obstacle, but not hard enough to force Russia to change its behavior, "wrote Stratfor experts.

Analysts also told how the RF is circumventing the existing sanctions against the prohibition of bond issues for Western investors.

"In its February report, the Treasury Department will outline in detail the impact on Russia and the world market of possible sanctions against US citizens who purchase a new public debt of Russia. The current sanctions do not allow some Russian companies (such as Sberbank and the oil giant Rosneft) to issue bonds for Western investors, but they do not prevent the issuance of debt obligations of the Russian government.Therefore, the Kremlin takes on a sovereign debt and transfers it to companies subject to sanctions.In 2017, foreign investment in the states th of debt increased from 5 to 30% of the total bonds issued (a total of 25 billion dollars.). Among Western financial companies, Russian government bonds last year were considered among the best in emerging markets, "- wrote in Stratfor.

It is noted that this year, the Kremlin expects to borrow $ 18 billion, since the Russian economy is coming out of recession, but it goes into a long period of stagnation.

The US Air Force has issued a video of the capture of Russian Su-30 fighters in the international airspace of the Baltic region.

The video is made up of several passages. The first part shows how American pilots are picked up by anxiety in 2014 on the basis of Šiauliai in Lithuania. In the second passage, two American F-15 fighters go to the interception of two Russian Su-30s near the air borders of the Baltic region on November 23. The third fragment shows the support of the two Su-30 US fighters on December 13.

It is also said that in both cases, pilots of the 493rd squadron of the 48th Air Force United States Air Force, based on Leukkhut in the United Kingdom, were raised on intercepting Russian planes.
