on Sat Jan 27, 2018 2:50 pm

Russia can go to a military exacerbation in relations with the West: Putin was warned about the consequences

on Sat Jan 27, 2018 2:52 pm
Russia can go to a military exacerbation in relations with the West: Putin was warned about the consequences

Russian President Vladimir Putin can go on aggravation in Ukraine, but this will mean transforming Russia into an analogue of the USSR or the DPRK.

This was reported by Russian political scientist Dmitry Oreshkin in the column on "Apostrophe".

"If Putin intensifies the actions against Ukraine, then it will break into the next cycle of sanctions and the consolidated resistance of the West, and if he is rational in the European sense of the word, he should not go that. But, on the other hand, there is the opposite logic - irrational from the point of view of Europe, but very even rational from the point of view of Asia: to create even more dangerous situation to form the basis for negotiations, to scare. Kim Chen Ying did so when he launched a number of missiles to count with him. exclusion yourself from the group damned, revered or supposed states and the transition is already purely to the Soviet technology of interaction with the West, when no contracts are executed - only forced by force methods and steps are realized. Roughly speaking, this means that we sharply exacerbate the situation in Ukraine and then declare America:

Oreshkin believes that Putin's elites can take such a step, although it will mean certain sacrifices for them.

"It completely excludes Russia from the world community at the level of the countries that have the ability to negotiate and bring it to the level of the DPRK or the Soviet Union, but for Putin's elites this is a very realistic option. I do not know if they will be honored because half the elites understand, that after that they will have to sit idle in Russia and say goodbye to their western holdings, why they will most likely not be glad. But if the power bloc overwhelms, then it is quite possible to imagine an attempt to throw firewood into a fire in the East of Ukraine - in order to Scare the West and the streets telling yourself more winning tactical conditions for negotiations, "- says a political scientist.

New US sanctions against Russia: it became known about Putin's serious problem with his entourage

on Sat Jan 27, 2018 2:54 pm
New US sanctions against Russia: it became known about Putin's serious problem with his entourage

In connection with the forthcoming publication in the United States of oligarchs close to the Kremlin , Russian President Vladimir Putin will face some difficulties.

The Russian political scientist Dmitry Oreshkin told this "Apostrophe".

"If we talk about the space of practical steps, Putin's problems are rather serious. Until now, he has always been able to compensate for the groups on which he relies the economic losses through sanctions through the resources he has in his hands. The last few years of resources are still less. Formerly, the [Arkadiy] Rotenberg group, which was hit by sanctions and lost significant financial assets, could make a compensation in the form of a large government order of 250 billion rubles, easily turning into 4 billion dollars In, on the construction of the Crimean bridge. But on all the Crimean bridges do not attack,"- said Oreshkin.

According to a political scientist, in the current situation Putin has to take more money from oilmen who also suffer from sanctions and can no longer boast of the presence of extra funds.

"So in Putin's reality, there are difficulties in buying the loyalty of those elite groups on which he relies. Therefore, of course, there will be a backstage desire to lift the sanctions, something to exchange something, somehow get out of this economic situation. It seems to me that against the backdrop of tightening in rhetoric, we will observe a rather sustained uprising attempts to somehow get rid of this pressure from sanctions,"- says Oreshkin.

The pro-Kremlin oligarchs are desperately trying to remove themselves from the public list that will soon be introduced in the US

on Sat Jan 27, 2018 3:05 pm
The pro-Kremlin oligarchs are desperately trying to remove themselves from the public list that will soon be introduced in the US

Russian oligarchs are campaigning for lobbying in Washington to prevent their names from appearing on the list of people close to the Kremlin. The administration of Donald Trump will promulgate the document on Monday.
This is reported by Tsensor.NET with reference to The New York Times.

According to the interlocutors of the newspaper, dozens of wealthy Russian citizens hired lawyers and lobbyists to find out if they would be involved with this list. The document is being prepared by the staff of the State Department and the US Treasury Department in accordance with the law on sanctions adopted by the Congress last summer. The government should provide a list of oligarchs, approximate sizes of their wealth, sources of income for the oligarchs themselves and their close relatives, as well as data on their assets in the United States.

The appearance of a name in the list does not automatically trigger the announcement of sanctions against people who have been added to it. However, according to lobbyists, their clients are concerned that they can be subject to sanctions in the future and that international financial firms refuse to deal with them because of an increased risk.

The publication quotes Sen. Democrat Ben Kardin, who expresses the hope that this "report will force some of the oligarchs to wonder if they wisely behave, linking their name to Putin's regime."

It is not known how many names will appear in this list and whether they will be made public whether a part of the list will be classified.

Together with the list, a report will be published analyzing the effects of potential restrictions on Russia's sovereign Russian debt abroad.

"We are not there" for Volker is not an argument: Ukraine explained the tricky idea of ​​the Kremlin in a position on the Donbas

"We are not there" for Volker is not an argument: Ukraine explained the tricky idea of ​​the Kremlin in a position on the Donbas

Russia and the militants under her control are spreading rumors of an escalation of the military conflict in the Donbas , in order to prevent the events and to take responsibility for them.

This is stated in the material "Apostrophe".

"We are not there" for the USA is not an argument. They have their own intelligence, and when Volker speaks with Surkov's tete-a-tete, everyone understands everything. But the withdrawal of troops is a matter of paramount importance. Therefore, statements that Ukraine needs a "hot phase" of the conflict is made for domestic consumption in these "republics." They need to be fired, "said former deputy commander of the General Staff of the Armed Forces, Lt. Gen. Igor Romanenko.

Russian propagandists are actively pushing the situation and claiming that Ukraine and the United States are supposed to fight, which is not to say about Russia.

Political scientist Cyril Sazonov explains that such statements are made because of Russia's search for new trump cards for negotiations.

"The last negotiations between Surkov and Volker ended in principle, and so new sanctions are being imposed, and it is rather difficult for Russia. As a result, the Russian Federation is looking for additional trump cards for negotiations: either there will be an exacerbation on the front, or ultimatums regarding Ukraine." For this purpose, public opinion is being prepared as in Russia, and in the DPR "- he says.

An analyst at the Ukrainian Institute for the Future, Igar Tishkevich, explains the reason for the rumors of an offensive.

"I do not rule out that a certain escalation of violence is possible, but declaring it first is to try to take responsibility for itself," he said.

The European Commission accused the Russian government of deliberately spreading misinformation with Europe.

According to Tsensor.NET, referring to the Russian service of DW, European Security Commissioner Julian King wrote in an article published in the German newspaper Die Welt.

"It is unlikely that there are doubts that we are dealing with a sophisticated, skillfully drafted and supported government by the pro-Russian campaign of misinformation," he said. "Russian military use the Internet as a new battlefield, using weapons as false information."

Europe should more actively deal with misinformation, the European Commissioner underlined. He described the cyber threats as hacker attacks, the spread of computer viruses, the online propaganda of terrorism, attempts to manipulate public opinion with the help of fake news and turn the open western system into a weapon that will be directed to democracy itself.

The European Commission, according to King, has already developed a number of projects aimed at both raising the competence of the users themselves and in the fight against online propaganda of hatred and terrorism.

According to open sources, Global Hawk, which has a high resolution camera, an infrared sensor and radar for tracking moving objects, is designed to conduct strategic aerial reconnaissance at depths up to 300 km on the enemy's territory. While flying at high altitudes, he is able to scan large areas, carry out intelligence of high-resolution targets and transmit intelligence information to real-time command via satellite communication channels. The Global Hawk drone, with a takeoff weight of 15 tons and a wing width of almost 40 meters, can patrol for 30 hours at an altitude of up to 18 thousand meters.

The cost of this strategic drone is estimated at $ 140 million, and its flight time costs $ 31 thousand

The young couple "decided to return home" to Ukraine, not finding a better life in the Russian Federation

on Sat Jan 27, 2018 4:24 pm
The young couple "decided to return home" to Ukraine, not finding a better life in the Russian Federation

The KPVB "Novotroitskaya" arrived on the route from Donetsk to Mariupol - a man, a citizen of Ukraine, in 1987, and his wife, born in 1996. Citizens had, besides passport documents of Ukraine, passports of the Russian Federation.



To the representatives of the operational-search department of the State Border Guard Service, they explained that with the onset of hostilities in the east of Ukraine, they were tempted by the program of Russia to assist in resettlement on its territory.

At first they were marked in Ukrainian passports for temporary residence and, when the wife became pregnant, in the Russian migration service insisted on obtaining their passports from the Russian Federation, arguing that otherwise they would refuse medical care even at the birth of a child.

Despite the promise, the only help received by the resettlement was 20,000 Russian rubles and there was still a "permit" to stay in Karelia. A man could not officially get a job. Money was not in the family, as well as the opportunity to earn, so they decided to return to Ukraine, crossing the closed pass point of the Assumption.

Today, a woman calls Ukraine home and assures that she and her husband want to live again here.

I emphasize once again that it is very important for us to have this mechanism of influence in order to return Russia to the negotiating table and to ensure the de-occupation of the Donbas and the liberation of Ukraine." My deep conviction as a first step is very it is important that this was a UN peacekeeping mission, "said the President of Ukraine.

We have received full support from the United States, our other partners in the UN ... This issue was raised in the negotiations with our Dutch colleagues, and Polish today and yesterday at the forum in Davos", - said P.Poroshenko.

He also stressed the importance of continuing the process of dismissing the remaining Ukrainian hostages in the ORDLO and releasing political prisoners in prisons in Russia.

Recall that on September 5, Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed the opinion that the presence of UN peacekeepers in the Donbas would be in favor of resolving the conflict in eastern Ukraine, and instructed the RF Ministry of Foreign Affairs to make a draft resolution for consideration by the UN Security Council.

First vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, representative of Ukraine in the Trilateral Contact Group on the situation in the Donbas Iryna Gerashchenko stated that the introduction of a UN peacekeeping mission on the line of collision in the east of Ukraine can not be the language, peacekeepers should enter the entire territory occupied by Russia.

The Russian Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Vasyl Nebenzha, said that the Russian side had sent a draft resolution on the deployment of peacekeepers to Donbass to the UN Secretary-General and head of the UN Security Council.

In numerous statements of the Russian authorities, it was emphasized that peacekeepers should be placed only on the line of delimitation of the conflicting parties, and not on the entire occupied territory of the Donbas, especially not on the Russian-Ukrainian border.

Later, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that Putin had agreed to deploy peacekeepers throughout the Donbass to protect OSCE staff.

On November 14, representatives of Russia and the United States discussed in detail the possibility of deploying a UN peacekeeping mission to the Donbas.

Amendment banning "Banderism" - a mockery of the Polish legal system



Party Kukiz'15 law banning the promotion of Polish ideology of Ukrainian Nationalists would be difficult to accomplish.

It informs Tsenzor.NET, to broadcast "Public Radio" said the chief editor Ukrainian portal in Poland Prostir.pl Igor Isaev.

"Even if the amendment takes Polish Senate, then the law has yet to sign the President. I personally think that it would be very difficult to do. It was written" on the knee "because it says that punished for such an amendment is not only people who deny the crimes of Ukrainian nationalists in Poland, and those attributes Poland Nazi crimes. According to the amendment, punished and Poles and foreigners. Regardless of the crime scene and the laws of those countries. that is, if somewhere in the press US or Cambodia someone writes something that contradicts this amendment, the Polish Prosecutor ture judge the man by Polish law. This, in my opinion, nonsense and mockery of the Polish legal system."

Recall that on January 26 the Polish Sejm adopted a motion proposed Kukiz '15 bill to ban propaganda "Bandera ideology."

Russian Orthodox Church priest was sentenced to 14 years in prison for having sex with minors in Orthodox camps

Priozersky City Court of Leningrad Oblast sentenced Ribe priest Gleb Grosovsky to 14 years of prison in a strict regime in the case of pedophilia

The court found him guilty of committing sexual acts with three girls under the age of 14, in Orthodox holiday camps on the island of Konveets on the Ladoga Lake in 2009, as well as on the island of Kos in Greece in 2013, local media reported.

The court ordered Grozovsky to pay to each of the three victims of 400 thousand rubles as compensation for non-pecuniary damage. He did not recognize the convicted guilty and stated that he would appeal the court's decision.

According to the investigator of the most important cases of the GSU SC RF in St. Petersburg, Alexander Gavrilov, the convict not only entered into sexual relations with children, but then intimidated them and persuaded not to inform their parents.

"Grozovskii explained to them, they say, what they did yesterday is a sin, so do not say anything to their parents, but just repay me," said Gavrilov.

A criminal case against Grozowski was instituted on September 20, 2013, when two of the girls in 2001 and 2004, the birth of a mother, turned to the police in court, in June of the same year the priest perpetrated violence in a children's camp on the Greek island of Kos. One of them told about what happened to her mother. She got in touch with the mother of the second girl. As a result, both women wrote to Grozovsky's statement.

Then there was another episode. In total, there were three.

At the same time, the Russian Orthodox Church said they will not deprive Groosovsky church dignity.

"His status will not change in any way. The sentence has not come into force, there is no final decision, there will be an appeal," the interlocutor noted. He added that the eparchy "does not comment in any way on the court's decision".

The process in the case of Grozovsky was in closed mode. The prosecution required him to be sentenced to 15 years in prison in a strict regime colony, the defense insisted on exoneration. The criminal case against the priest broke in the fall of 2013. Before his extradition in autumn 2016, Grozovsky was hiding in Israel.

Thousands of deaths: it became known about the new sabotage of Russia

Thousands of deaths: it became known about the new sabotage of Russia



Russia can cause a sabotage, which will kill thousands of people

British Defense Minister Gavin Williamson said that Russia could attack the island's energy system, which would cause the death of "thousands and thousands and thousands" of Britons.

The politician is confident that Russia is exploring the energy supply systems from the continent. In Britain, about three million households depend on energy coming from submarine cables for electricity and gas.

"The Russians will not land in the South Bay in Scarborough and near the beach of Brighton. They are now thinking about how to inflict maximum damage to Britain. If you strike at the economy, destroy the infrastructure, it will lead to many thousands of victims. And in this case, the country can plunge into chaos, "Williamson said.

He also claims that the British military has photos of the suspicious intelligence activity of Russians along with British power plants.

According to Williamson, Russia can realize its plans with the help of cyber attack, underwater attack and even launch of a guided missile.

Recall, yesterday the US expanded sanctions lists against Russia because of the aggression in Ukraine.
