The CIA is confident that Russia will try to intervene in the US-2018 elections

Russia and other countries are trying to undermine the US elections and try to do so during the 2018 congressional elections

CIA director Mike Pompeo announced this, according to Reuters .

He noted that Russian interference in American elections has been taking place for a long time and continues. Answering a question regarding whether the Kremlin is trying to blow up the US elections now, he replied, "yes, and did so for decades."

"Yes, I continue to worry, not only because of the Russians, but also through the efforts of others (countries, ed.). We have many enemies who want to undermine Western democracy," Pompeo said.

Recall that US Special Forces Prosecutor Robert Muller wants to question the heads of companies that worked for Paul Manaforth, a former adviser to Donald Trump.

At the disposal of the US Attorney General Robert Muller, who investigates contacts between the president of the United States and Russia, there was a draft letter stating why Trump was dismissed by the head of the FBI, James Comey.

Trump adviser on national security says there is evidence of Russia's interference in Mexico's 2018 election

The Russian government has launched a difficult campaign to influence the presidential elections in Mexico this year

This was stated by adviser to US President Donald Trump on national security Herbert McMaster, reports Reuters.

The video of his speech was recorded on December 15, but this part of it appeared only now.

Then he noted that there was evidence of Russia's interference in the Mexican elections, which should take place in July. In this way, the Kremlin, in the words of the advisor, wants to polarize democratic societies and set citizens up against each other.

"You have actually seen the first signs of this in the presidential campaign in Mexico," said McMaster, while not specifying how exactly the Russian authorities want to influence the country's elections.

Note that on the eve of the CIA Director Mike Pompeo said that Russia and other countries are trying to undermine the US elections and try to do so during the 2018 congressional elections.

Russia will appeal to the WTO new claims of the European Union

on Mon Jan 08, 2018 12:22 pm
Russia will appeal to the WTO new claims of the European Union



Russia does not plan to leave the WTO due to EU claims

Russia will call a new panel of arbitrators to check again the already fulfilled WTO requirements for the supply of pork from the European Union, said RIA Novosti, Director of the Department of Trade Negotiations Ministry of the RF, Maxim Medvedkov.

Such a decision will be the answer to the fact that on the third of January the EU asked the organization to create a special commission to consider a new requirement for meat supply.

"The EU has not yet explained its decision to us. We demonstrated in December that the WTO and the EU, which have complied with all the decisions, lifted the ban on imports of pork through ACS (African Swine Fever - ed.), It acts only on a protest bill. We sent copies of all decisions of Rosselhoznadzor for execution of the decision of the arbitrators. But the EU believes that we have not met these demands, and did not agree with our arguments, "Medvedkov said.

According to Medvedkov, the EU does not require Russia direct monetary compensation for the prohibition of pork supplies. He said that in this way, the European Union wants to obtain from the WTO permission for appropriate measures "that compensate for their losses, for example, to raise tariffs for Russian goods".

At the same time, the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Russia noted that Russia does not plan to leave the WTO through claims of the EU.

Earlier, in Russia, threatened to leave the country from the World Trade Organization (WTO) in case of losing the arbitration process under the lawsuit of the European Union on the collection from the Russian side of almost 1.4 billion euros per year for restrictions on imports of pork from the EU.
