New US sanctions against Russia: Reuters learned about important details

New US sanctions against Russia: Reuters learned about important details

Two official distributors of Microsoft Corporation in Russia have introduced restrictions on the sale of products to more than 200 Russian companies in connection with new sanctions by the United States.

This writes agency Reuters.

Also, new restrictive measures have reduced the duration of loans that can be granted to Russian financial firms that are subject to sanctions for 30 days to 14 days and from 90 days to 60 days for Russian energy companies that are on the US sanctions list.

One of Microsoft's distributors in the Russian Federation, the Merlion company, told Russian companies that came under sanctions that they should have time to pay for products within the specified deadline or pay upfront.

The second distributor, the RRC company, said in a statement that "there are serious restrictions imposed" on the orders of Microsoft's products from Russian firms that have fallen under US sanctions.

It is noted that the Merlion and RRC instructions follow from the new US sanctions package of August 2, last year, which relate to cyberattacks and Russia's interference in Ukraine's affairs.

"Americans have a huge military budget, but it crumbles before Russian innovations," broadcast the channel "Russia"

Russian political scientist and Corresponding Member of the Academy of Military Sciences Sergei Sudakov said on the propaganda channel "Russia" on the superiority of Russian military technology over the capabilities of the US Army.
According to Cenzor.NET, Sudakov is convinced that even with a huge military budget, the US Army receives much less high-tech weapons than the Russian armed forces.

"This budget, when faced with our innovations, falls apart. We have shown 114 weapons in Syria, and the US has been able to show only prototype 36 types of weapons in the last four years," Sudakov said.

Crimean annexation and aggression against Ukraine are not enough to seize Russia from the Council of Europe - the Secretary General of the Council of Europe

on Mon Jan 22, 2018 12:10 pm
Crimean annexation and aggression against Ukraine are not enough to seize Russia from the Council of Europe - the Secretary General of the Council of Europe

European international institutions can only exclude from their rosters the member state only when it resumes the death penalty and slavery, the use of torture and execution of extrajudicial punishment

This was stated by the Secretary General of the Council of Europe Turbjorn Jagland, reports "European truth."

According to the Secretary-General, the Council of Europe status documents define 4 principles, from which a member can not refuse to continue to be part of international European institutions. Among them are the death penalty and torture, forced labor or slavery, as well as extrajudicial punishment.

"They are the most fundamental values, they define the soul of Europe. No country that violates these principles can be a member of our family." There is no concession there, "said Jagland.

All other violations of the principles of the Council of Europe, in his opinion, do not have such influence.

Jagland also said that Russia should return to work in the PACE until the organization's summit, scheduled for next year. To do this, will have to lift the sanctions that were imposed on the Russians through the annexation of the Crimea, and later - because of the aggression against the Donbas.

As a result, in recent years, Russia does not submit lists of its deputies to participate in the work of the PACE. In Moscow, they insist that the condition for their return should be the elimination of the sanctions instrument in the PACE.

-In the summer, Russia stopped payments to the Council of Europe budget, which jeopardized the work of the Council of Europe . In Russia, they said that a new decision on their contribution to the Council of Europe's budget for 2018 would depend on whether the Russian delegation would take full part in the work of the PACE.

-In November 2017, Secretary General of the Council of Europe, Turbjorn Jagland, rejected the proposal to divide Russia's contribution to the organization's budget among all members in order to stop the process of unconditional return of Russians to the PACE.

-Before that, the head of the delegation of the Ukrainian parliament in PACE Vladimir Ariev said that Jagland is trying to blackmail European deputies to return Russian representatives to the PACE session hall.

-And the Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the Council of Europe Dmitry Kuleba said that the Council of Europe's secretary of state is trying to form any coalition in support of Russia's return to the PACE, even at the expense of the destruction of the values, principles and mechanisms of the influence of the Council of Europe.

-Earlier, the interests of Russia were defended by the President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, Pedro Agramut . But subsequently his flights to Syria on Russian planes provoked a big scandal and he was forced to resign.

-A new president of the PACE was elected to replace Agramut. He became the representative of Italy, Michele Nicolette. In his first speech, he said that "frustrated" of the lack of Russians in the institution.

The London Court of Appeal, today, January 22, will consider the appeal of Ukraine to the decision of the High Court of London for $ 3 billion. "Yanukovych's debt". This UNIAN reported the press service of the Ministry of Finance, reports Tsenzor.NET.

"Yes, (the court hearing - Ed.) Will be held on January 22," the press service said.

Let's remind that the High Court of London in January last year began the consideration of Russia's claim against Ukraine regarding Eurobonds of our country for 3 billion dollars, redeemed by the Russian Federation in December 2013, according to an agreement between Russian President Vladimir Putin and the then head of our state Viktor Yanukovych. Ukraine sees this loan as a "bribe" of the Kremlin to the former Ukrainian authorities for rejecting European integration, while the Russian side insists on its repayment. On March 29, the London court upheld the expedited consideration of the RF claim, without recognizing the validity of the arguments of Ukraine in this case, but the Ministry of Finance announced its intention to appeal this decision. At the end of July, the London High Court upheld Ukraine's request for a complete suspension of the decision on "Yanukovych's loan" for $ 3 billion.

Ukraine will not succumb to Putin's trick with the return of ships from the annexed Crimea, - Klimkin

Moldova wants to set the Russian bill for Russian troops in Transnistria

on Mon Jan 22, 2018 12:32 pm
Moldova wants to set the Russian bill for Russian troops in Transnistria

Moldovan authorities intend to hire an international law firm to assess losses from Russia's military presence in Transnistria for 25 years.

This is reported by "Euroradio".

According to Speaker of the Moldovan Parliament Andriyana Candu, an account that may be issued to Moscow will be measured in billions of dollars.

Kandu reminded that in Pridnestrovii illegally there are about 2 thousand Russian soldiers, who in Chisinau consider occupying forces.

Russia, in his words, violates international law. The Moldovan authorities are trying to raise the issue of Russia's violation of international law at the international level and hopes that it will be discussed at the UN.

Also, Kandu complained about Russia's information interference in the events in Moldova. In the country, according to him, the activity of pro-Russian NGOs and reconnaissance activities intensified.

In early May 2017, the Constitutional Court of Moldova admitted that the presence of Russian armed forces on the territory of Transnistria contradicts the neutrality of the state. In July, the Moldovan parliament approved a statement demanding the withdrawal of Russian troops from the country.

In August, a representative of Moldova to the United Nations, Victor Marari, said that the country had asked to consider in the UN the issue of the withdrawal of Russian troops from Transnistria.

The court began to consider Saakashvili's appeal for refugee status

on Mon Jan 22, 2018 12:50 pm
The court began to consider Saakashvili's appeal for refugee status



Kyiv Administrative Court of Appeal about 10:15 on Monday began to consider an appeal to a court of first instance that recognized the legitimate refusal of the State Migration Service to grant Mikheil Saakashvili refugee status or a person in need of additional protection (political custody).

The case is considered by the panel of judges led by Andriy Korotkikh, reports Tsensor.NET with reference to lb.ua.

In case of rejection of the appeal to the decision of the Migration Service, it will come into force, and in Saakashvili there will no longer be any legitimate grounds for staying in Ukraine. In connection with this, a large number of Saakashvili sympathizers came to court, and consideration had to be taken to the assembly hall.

Recall that last week Saakashvili expressed confidence that the Ukrainian authorities would refuse to grant him refugee status and thereby create conditions for expulsion from the country. In his opinion, this could happen already on January 22.

Recall that on July 26, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko by his order deprived the citizenship of Ukraine of ex-president of Georgia, ex-head of the Odessa regional state administration Mikheil Saakashvili. Later, MP and freelance adviser Interior Minister Anton Gerashchenko at said that Heneralnaya Prosecutor of Georgia gave Ukraine the facts that were not known to it at time of Mikheil Saakashvili Ukrainian citizenship.

The politician at that time was in the USA, he later arrived in Poland with a Ukrainian passport, then Saakashvili visited Lithuania, Hungary, Denmark and Belgium.

On August 16, M. Saakashvili announced that he will return to Ukraine on September 10 through the checkpoint "Krakovets" (Lviv region).

On the eve of the main prosecutor of Georgia has officially confirmed the information that Mr. ruzynska side again appealed to Ukraine concerning arrest and extradition Saakashvili.

As it was informed earlier, on September 10, Mikheil Saakashvili decided to enter Ukraine on the train to avoid unrest at the Krakovets crossing point. The train "Intercity" with the connection "Przemysl - Kiev" was supposed to leave at 13:07 in Ukrainian time, but his departure was delayed for several hours. Some reports of detention were detained by law enforcers. But soon the police denied this information. "Ukrzaliznytsya", for its part, explained the delay of the train "Przemysl - Kyiv" by staying in it a person who has no grounds for entry into Ukraine. Later Saaashvili arrived at the Chegini checkpoint.

Ukraine will submit a memorandum on Russia's violation of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea on February 19



Ukraine intends to submit a memorandum to the UN International Law Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (Hamburg, Germany) on February 19th on Russia's violation of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.

This was stated by the Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine on European Integration Olena Zerkal, Censor.NET reports , referring to Interfax-Ukraine.

"Already on February 19th ... we submit our memorandum, in which we accuse Russia, in fact, of usurping our rights, the rights of Ukraine as a coastal naval state, where we point out all violations related to the Black Sea, the Azov Sea, the Kerch Strait, the construction of the Kerch Bridge", - said the mirror.

The Deputy Minister noted that after the submission of a memorandum by Ukraine, Russia would have 3 months to file an objection to the jurisdiction of the Tribunal to consider this issue.

Not only the coffins: In Russia they named the reasons from which Putin will not go through a great war on Kyiv

Not only the coffins: In Russia they named the reasons from which Putin will not go through a great war on Kyiv

Russian President Vladimir Putin is unlikely to begin a large-scale military offensive against Ukraine because of the likelihood of large losses, the deterioration of relations with the West and the lack of ability to hold the occupied territories.

The Russian journalist and publicist Leonid Radzihovsky told about this "Apostrophe".

"Everyone understands that if the Ukrainian army makes military action, then the answer will be catastrophic for Ukraine, but it will be catastrophic for Russia, because even a local war with Ukraine is not a trip to Kyiv, and, say, to break up troops in the Donbass and take off another piece of land - would be a catastrophe for Russia for a few obvious reasons, "the journalist said.

According to him, one of the first reasons is the coffins, which in the event of a war Russia can receive on the eve of voting for the president of the Russian Federation.

The second reason Radzihovsky calls a new round of confrontation with Europe.

"There will be the most brutal actions in response to the embargo on the sale of gas and oil, which will turn into an economic catastrophe in Russia," he predicts.

The third reason, according to the journalist, is that Russia will not be able to hold the enthusiastic territory.

"Russia does not know what to do with this" devil "Donbass, which is so, but it is necessary to drink, to feed, to pull on itself. But to take away some other territories - and what to do there? To eat, to drink and to pull? What a devotee of Russia it is Need? It's absolute madness", - says Radzihovsky.

Sanctions against Putin: Ukraine was urged to remember about an important moment

Sanctions against Putin: Ukraine was urged to remember about an important moment

The success of sanctions against the Russian Federation depends, in particular, on the extent to which they are supplemented by other measures or at least the threat of such measures.

An Associate Expert at the International Center for Policy Studies (ICPS) Mykola Kapitonenko stated this to the "Apostrophe".

According to him, sanctions that may lead to other steps, such as military operations, are much more effective than sanctions that can not be strengthened at all.

"It is difficult to measure the effect of anti-Russian sanctions, and we know that Russia's economy has decreased by 35% over the years of the sanctions regime, and the national currency has devalued by half, but what was the reason for this weakening - sanctions or falling prices for energy resources? The dynamics of exchange rates oscillations, rather, correlates with the latter. In addition, structural problems in 's economy were observed and before the introduction of sanctions, "- said Kapitonenko.

At the same time, he added that the technical features of the sanctions imposed - for example, those seriously restricting Russia's ability to extract oil - could theoretically lead to higher prices for this resource, in spite of the expectations of a drop in production volumes.

"Why in this case will Ukraine prefer: low oil prices or sanctions against Russia? For such complex issues, we too often find ourselves unprepared," the expert said.

He recalled that every half a year Ukraine is traditionally engaged in dialogue with Western partners in order to strengthen their determination to continue the regime of anti-Russian sanctions. However, dialogue can be made more effective, laying the foundation for a long-term strategy that takes into account the realities and complexity of policy sanctions, based on a clear understanding of their own goals and, in this case, of particular importance, the interests of our partners.

"Among other things, it is fundamentally important to understand when our own desire to keep anti-Russian sanctions ceases to coincide with the aspirations of the West. Obviously, at this moment, our usual rhetoric will have to be seriously changed. On the other hand, it is necessary to understand as fully as possible what can and can not be achieved. with the help of sanctions", - said Kapitonenko.

According to the expert, a more sober and pragmatic attitude toward Western anti-Russian sanctions will help Ukraine to get the most out of them and at the same time not be caught abusively in the event that they are weakened or lifted. Studying the experience of using this tool suggests that Kyiv overestimates its effectiveness and underestimates the complexity.

"Western countries are in a much wider position with respect to the Kremlin than we do." Sanctions are an instrument that is used primarily to protect their interests. Today, their interests overlap with ours, but this will not always be the case. pragmatic, and in order to have more chance of success in it, we need to learn a more pragmatic approach to what we consider to be important issues of foreign policy, "Kapitonenko summed up.
