In New York, protesters from Putin's artists who supported the seizure of the Crimea were welcomed

In New York, protesters from Putin's artists who supported the seizure of the Crimea were welcomed

In the evening of January 19, activists in New York protested against the concerts of Russian musicians Denis Matsuev and Igor Butman, who in 2014 supported the occupation of the Crimea.

This was reported by journalist Julia Gorodetska on Facebook.

The journalist jokes that their rally was called "for two hares", since it was held simultaneously in two places.





According to her, the action did not raise awareness among the visitors of the concerts.

""And again, those who did not have enough tickets for a ticket"," why you do not go to work"," who pays you ", and much more. As always, people living in a country with a protected right to civil protest (and where many of what they have are the result of such protests) do not understand that you can not go for money,"- she wrote.

Participation of the Russian Federation in the war on the Donbass: Ukraine pointed to a puncture of Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin has actually recognized Russia as a party to the conflict in the Donbass, convening a meeting of the Security Council after the adoption in Ukraine of the draft law No. 7163 "On the peculiarities of state policy towards ensuring the state sovereignty of Ukraine over temporarily occupied territories in the Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts".

This was stated on the radio of Radio Svoboda by Deputy Minister for the Temporary Occupied Territories of Ukraine Yuriy Grymchak.

"You apologize to me, but on the one hand everyone tells what a bad law... For some reason, the president of Russia yesterday assembled the Security Council of Russia, is it a bad law? What damn they are then? They always insisted that" we are not we", "the house is not mine"," we are not there", and we generally mediators, guarantors, the side of the conflict, two are fighting, I am not a party to the conflict, what will I do there, and then when I'm battling, then so, then we convene Council of the security of their country and think what to do", - said Grimchak.

The UN program stops food aid in the Donbas

on Sat Jan 20, 2018 6:22 pm
The UN program stops food aid in the Donbas



The assistance WFP began to provide in Ukraine in November 2014 is stopped because of funding problems.

The World Food Program stops the food aid program in eastern Ukraine. This was reported by an international analyst and former OSCE PMM Speaker in Ukraine Michael B. Bocurkiv in an interview with the Air Force, informs Tsensor. NET with reference to Voice of America.

From the beginning of the WFP program in Ukraine in November 2014 to June 2017, the WFP provided food aid to 970,000 people who were more vulnerable and had the biggest food security problems in the conflict areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, according to official WFP information. The priorities of the WFP are to help older people living with them, women with children and people with severe chronic diseases.

The WFP World Food Program and the United Nations Children's Fund UNICEF now have problems with attracting funding, which leads to a reduction in assistance programs in these areas, said Bociurki. He expects that the same challenges for the humanitarian situation, unfortunately, will remain in 2019. "It seems that the diplomatic toolkit is exhausted and creative approaches are not offered in the crisis in the east of Ukraine. It is necessary that the parties comply with the agreements, in particular the obligation to ban mines, etc."

The "Jihadist" from Uzbekistan, who was in the international wanted, was detained in the Odesa region

Employees of the Security Service of Ukraine, according to Interpol and Europol, detained a citizen of Uzbekistan in the Odessa region, who was declared an international wanted person for committing particularly serious crimes.

Tsensor.NET informs about it, referring to the  press center of the SBU.

According to law enforcement officers, the  foreigner took an active part in the activities of the international religious-extremist group "Jihadchilar" ("Jihadists"). He was a member of the structural unit of the Jamaat group. The detainee, in particular, was responsible for recruiting a new replenishment of the ranks of extremists, and also promoted the ideology of radical Islam.



According to the intelligence, similar activities on the spread of religious-extremist ideology and the involvement of new members in Jihadchilar, the intruder intended to conduct on the territory of Ukraine. The issue of applying to a foreigner for extradition arrest is being solved with his subsequent transfer to the state security organs of Uzbekistan.

The pro-Russian party of Serbia calls on Putin to enter troops in Kosovo

on Sat Jan 20, 2018 6:29 pm
The pro-Russian party of Serbia calls on Putin to enter troops in Kosovo



The pro-Russian party "Serbian League" calls on the country's authorities to appeal to Russian President Vladimir Putin to bring troops into Kosovo.

According to Tsensor.NET, referring to the European truth, this is stated in the appeal of the head of the party, Alexander Dzhurdzhev, which was published on the website of the party on January 19.

The Serbian League warns that the temporary UN Mission and EULEX in Kosovo are not able to protect the Serbian people from the actions of Albanian terrorists, although their main task is to maintain peace, stability and security of the population," he said.

In this regard, Djurdzhev called on the Serbian authorities to urgently take advantage of the right granted by resolution 1244 of the UN Security Council and deploy 999 Serbian soldiers on the territory of Kosovo and Metohija.

In addition, he asks to immediately initiate talks with Russia on the participation of Russian peacekeepers in Kosovo and Metohija, in order to "prevent the terrible murder of Serbs and the destruction of property."

The Serbian League calls on the executive and legislative authorities of our country, the government and parliament to appeal to Russian President Vladimir Putin to join the process of resolving the situation and, by analogy with the model for resolving the crisis in Syria, to sign an agreement between Serbia and Russia, "said Dzhurdzhev

It should be noted that the Serbian League is in favor of close cooperation with Russia, which, in its opinion, is a "protector of the Orthodox peoples", and against the country becoming a "colony of Western powers".

"Though 70% of our citizens are against NATO, all parties in the parliament are in favor of cooperation with NATO ... We must remember that membership in the EU does not guarantee a high standard of living, as can be seen from the example of Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary and Croatia", - says the website of the party.

Recall that on January 16, the leader of the Kosovar Serbs, Oliver Ivanovich, was shot dead in the northern part of the city. Serbian President Alexander Vucic sees the assassination of a Serbian politician as a terrorist act.

Gerashchenko about an attempt on him: Special services of the Russian Federation promised to the killers a fee of $ 50 thousand

Gerashchenko about an attempt on him: Special services of the Russian Federation promised to the killers a fee of $ 50 thousand



A year ago, citizens of Ukraine Svyatoslav Zhirenko and Dmitry Yakob planned to blow up the car of People's Deputy Anton Gerashchenko for the Russian intelligence services.

According to Censor.NET, a member of the Collegium of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, People's Deputy Anton Gerashchenko writes about it on Facebook . We give him the full text.

"Exactly a year ago, SBU counterintelligence detained two people who, according to the Russian intelligence services, were planning an assassination attempt on me by undermining my car.

Their names are Svyatoslav Zhirenko and Dmitry Yakob. Both were previously tried repeatedly. Both, while in the territory of the occupied Crimea, came into the sight of Russian intelligence services, who decided to use them as an expense material for the realization of their terrorist and sabotage plans.

First of all, they are Ukrainian citizens, previously convicted, who are adherents of the "Russian world" who hate Ukraine itself. And so they do not mind it.

In the case of detention, one can always say that these are internal Ukrainian affairs.

Secondly, if they are detained by Ukrainian law enforcement agencies, then nothing is terrible - there will be others.

Today facts are as follows:

Svyatoslav Zhirenko and Dmitry Yakob have been arrested for a year in a SIZO.

The criminal case is being considered by the Kyiv Obolonsky court.

Since the accused may be threatened with life imprisonment, the case is considered with the participation of the jury as a guarantee of the lawfulness and observance of human rights.

Articles of the Criminal Code of Ukraine, on which they are accused: art. 112 (encroachment on the life of a state or public figure), art. 115 (intentional murder) and art. 263 (illicit handling of weapons, combat supplies or explosives).

Common to both is their rich criminal past. Although one of them at the dawn of his youth even got a higher legal education, participation in the robbery and the subsequent deprivation of that bright future, unfortunately, prevented.

On the way of correction, these citizens did not and continued to search for funds for existence in the usual criminal way, in particular, they agreed to become executors ordering for my murder.

The total fee for the murder promised by the killers was $50,000.

True, not the fact that the killers themselves would not be eliminated upon returning to the territory of the Russian Federation.

To implement a criminal plan, it was originally intended to use firearms.

But then it was decided to use a homemade explosive device with a remote detonator. It was safer for the killers themselves, given the possibility of giving way to the crime with impunity.

The explosive device was planned to be set at night under my car while he was standing next to the house. After that, one of the killers had to go by taxi immediately through Chernigov to Russia. And the second would stay until morning to click on the remote detonator button.

Their plans and plans for their curators were frustrated by the professional work of the Ukrainian counterintelligence.

The link, which was described by S. Zhirenko and D. Yakob, Russian special services as an assistant for organizing my assassination, was previously reversed by counterintelligence and immediately informed the Security Service of Ukraine of the arrival of killers from the Russian Federation.

Further, the documented preparation for my murder was a matter of engineering.

And in an apartment in Kiev, which was hired by the killers, and in their car set a set of "bugs" that allowed counterintelligence to fix each step they took.

During my pursuit of my killers, several times went to Russia, in Belgorod, to meet with my curator (the agent of Russian special services Andriy Tikhonov) and another villain, whose name is not yet disclosed.

Also, the kills were negotiating with their Russian curators over the Internet. All these negotiations are also documented and submitted to the court.

A well-known journalist said when Putin decides on a major war against Ukraine

Russian President Vladimir Putin will go on an open military aggression against Ukraine, when the economic situation in Russia will be extremely bad.

This was reported by the journalist Arkady Babchenko on the broadcast of the ATR channel.

"Unfortunately, there will probably be a big war, and I think that the initiator of the Great War will be Russia, because when the economic situation there approaches the status of Venezuela, and it will come to this state, because in the XXI century the country or develop, or begin to regress and retreat back..."- he said.

According to the journalist, after a stop in development, Russia will begin to roll back and the situation in the country will begin to deteriorate.

"When it comes to the Venezuelan stage, when there is no sausage or toilet paper, unfortunately, Vladimir Putin will have no other option to influence internal politics, except for an external war. The foreign war is, first of all, of course Ukraine"- suggests Babchenko.

Also, the journalist noted that Ukraine should use the relative lull at the front to build a strong army and economy.
