The military expert spoke about Putin's plan to capture the whole of Ukraine

on Thu Feb 01, 2018 1:21 pm
The military expert spoke about Putin's plan to capture the whole of Ukraine

Russian President Vladimir Putin will try to get the whole territory of Ukraine with the help of subversive activity.

This was announced by the head of the Center for Research on Army, Conversion and Disarmament, a military expert Valentin Badrak in an interview with the "Apostrophe".

He noted that Putin would try to "ruin the very foundations of Ukraine as an independent state", with the use of non-military methods.

"He understands that with the presence of limited resources that are now in Russia, with the presence of a rigid opposition from the main players of the world arena, first of all the United States, it makes no sense to impose any attack a la to break through the corridor to the Crimea or capture part of the Left Bank of Ukraine Rather, the situation looks like this: he is ready to threaten Ukraine by treating the whole world that the war on the territory of Ukraine is allegedly a war between Russia and the United States, although we understand that it is such a cunning fake, but at the same time it will focus on subversion in ukraine It is a much more interesting idea for him, having changed the paradigm of power, he receives another state, receives the whole of Ukraine, as they say, on a plate with a blue rim, that is, for himself as part of an empire. That's his goal, "he said. Badrak

The expert notes that Putin underestimates the changes in Ukrainian mentality in recent years and does not want to perceive Ukraine as a participant of events, and not "as a subject, which he uses in his struggle against the Western world."

The US Treasury Department explained why secretive parts of the "Kremlin list"

on Thu Feb 01, 2018 1:24 pm
The US Treasury Department explained why secretive parts of the "Kremlin list"

The US Treasury Department classified part of the "Kremlin Report" to prevent the withdrawal of assets from individuals indicated in it.

This was stated by Tony Saig, Assistant Secretary of Treasury of the US Treasury, Bloomberg.

"The Ministry has included a secret application in the report in order to avoid potentially withdrawal of assets by these individuals and legal entities, as well as for non-disclosure of sensitive information," said the representative of the Ministry of Finance.

He recalled that the US Treasury Secretary, Stephen Mnuchin, during the hearings in the Congress, said that the presentation of the report meant imposition of sanctions.

"The Ministry of Finance has made it clear that we are focused on counteracting the destabilizing activity of Russia," Saeed said.

-On January 30, the US Treasury Department published the "Kremlin Report" , which names the 210 names of Russian President Vladimir Putin's Russian officials and oligarchs.

-Russian politicians from Putin's environment reacted to their listing .

-All Russian oligarchs from Putin's list are in the Forbes ranking. The media counted their wealth.

-As the head of the Ministry of Justice Paul Petrenko told, such actions of the USA are the last warning of Russia . Moreover, the United States can, without further warning, introduce the full range of sanctions and restrictions against companies and individuals.

-One of the Kremlin list consultants, Anders Aslund, said that the document was suddenly replaced by a senior official from the administration of the US president.

The Ministry emphasizes that, despite attempts to establish cooperation with the United States on the basis of the Mutual Legal Assistance Agreement in criminal cases, "the American secret services continue to" hunt "for Russians around the world."

"The number of such cases has already reached four dozen.One than only 2017, more than ten Russian citizens were arrested abroad for requests from Washington, as examples may be attributed to the arrest of S.V.Lisova and P.Yu.Levashov in Spain, and to Y.A. in Latvia .Martisheva, in Canada - R.F.Mansurova, in Greece - AVVinnik,"- told in the department.

The Foreign Ministry was warned that after the extradition to the United States, Russians face a biased attitude from the American "justice".

"Given these circumstances, we strongly encourage Russian citizens to carefully weigh all risks when planning trips abroad, especially if there are grounds to suspect claims from American law enforcement agencies," added the ministry.

They were advised to draw attention to countries with extradition agreements with Washington. Their list is on the website of the State Department.

Three people were arrested in Lithuania on suspicion of espionage in favor of Russia

on Thu Feb 01, 2018 1:44 pm
Three people were arrested in Lithuania on suspicion of espionage in favor of Russia



Three Lithuanian citizens were arrested, who are suspected of transferring information on Lithuanian military and strategic objects to Russian special services.

Reported Tsenzor.NET with reference to Interfax-Ukraine.

Arrested suspects that the money was transferred to Russian intelligence services information. They go through two separate pre-trial investigations. Two of the suspects were previously serving in the Lithuanian Armed Forces, one working for the Lithuanian Air Force.

Lithuanian law enforcement agencies began investigations based on military intelligence information, dozens of searches were conducted during the investigation. It is noted that the detention began in December, but the exact dates are not called.

The suspect is threatened with imprisonment for up to 15 years.

Lithuanian military intelligence chief Colonel Ryamigijus Baltrenas said at a press conference that suspects had secret information.

"Despite the fact that the act of espionage was committed through the transmission of unclassified information, and the detainees did not need to have permission to work with the secret, this does not deny the danger of the very act of espionage and its threat to the security of the state," said R. Baltrenas.

According to him, this was the gathering of information about other people who could probably be recruited.

"We warn all citizens of the Republic of Lithuania that the threat of recruitment is always threatened, especially when visiting non-NATO countries. Lithuanian citizens should be very attentive and alert and if they feel that there are signs of recruitment, talk about work on Foreign states, then you should immediately inform the intelligence services of the Republic of Latvia, "R. Baltrenas said at a press conference.

He noted that such actions will not only prevent and reduce the possible consequences for the security of the country, but will simultaneously benefit the same Lithuanian citizens.

As reported by the prosecutor's office, in the period since 2014, in Lithuania, a total of 12 people suspected of espionage were exposed. Five people have already been convicted and received different terms of imprisonment.

Deliveries of Javelin: In Ukraine, they were told what kind of military aid could be obtained from the United States

Deliveries of Javelin: In Ukraine, they were told what kind of military aid could be obtained from the United States

Assistance to the Armed Forces of Ukraine Javelin is bringing Ukraine closer to a full-fledged ally of the United States, which will open the door for other American weapons.

This was stated in an interview with "Apostrophe" by the head of the Center for the Study of Army, Conversion and Disarmament, a military expert Valentin Badrak.

Also, according to his information, Ukraine in the near future should receive assistance for naval forces, in particular boats, as well as American detection systems.

"Ukraine should try to use the situation in order to switch to another quality of cooperation, for example, to receive American technologies for our companies that will jointly develop weapons. Incidentally, Americans are very curious because labor is cheap in Ukraine, and such projects would be very cost-effective.If you take a distant sight, it would be right for Ukraine to achieve the situation, as in Poland, in order to have an American base on the territory of Ukraine that would be protected by American Patriot systems. If this happened, e would be very serious", - said Badrak.

"Javelin has created the prerequisite for Ukraine's transition from a partner's status to an ally's status," he concluded.

How Russia harms Ukraine on international arms markets

Russia is trying to squeeze Ukrainian enterprises from international markets for weapons and military equipment

This is reported by the press center "Ukroboronprom".

The department noted that Russia is taking steps to push Ukrainian companies from international markets, where the interests of both countries intersect in the fight for contracts.

In particular, such contracts relate to the repair and modernization of Soviet-made machinery.

"The Russian side has recently been resorting to tactics, for example, when, for example, on the eve of tenders the potential customers are blocked by letters demanding that Ukrainian enterprises be excluded from the list of participants, since only Russia has the right to repair or modernize Soviet technology." Some countries are subjected to such blackouts." - said Director of the State Enterprise "Ukrinmash" Sergey Slyusarenko.

According to him, such actions harm the Ukrainian economic interests, because of the repair of aircraft, substantial income can be obtained.

Senate of Poland adopts law on "ban of Bandera ideology"

on Thu Feb 01, 2018 1:53 pm
Senate of Poland adopts law on "ban of Bandera ideology"

The Polish Senate on the night of February 1 finally adopted a law on the "Institute of National Remembrance - the Commission on the Prosecution of Crimes Against the Polish People and some other laws." The law, in particular, provides for criminal liability for statements about the involvement of the Poles in the Holocaust and the promotion of "Bandera ideology".

This is reported by the Polish media TVP.

During the vote, the senators from the opposition proposed amendments to the bill, but they were not accepted. So the document without changes has now been sent to the President of Poland for signature.

82 senators voted for this bill, 57 of which cast their votes "for".

The document refers to the responsibility for the creation of concentration camps of the Third Reich, genocide, the Holocaust, and in particular the "Bandera ideology". Therefore, "the one who attributes this responsibility to the Polish people is subject to a fine or imprisonment for a term of up to 3 years."

The US Congress expressed concern about this Polish bill and sent a letter to the President of Poland, expressing the hope that Andrzej Dud would veto him.

On January 26, the Sejm of Poland adopted a law on the "prohibition of the propaganda of Bandera ideology". The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine accepted the adoption of this bill as "another attempt to impose a one-sided interpretation of historical events", including the incorrect use of the name of part of the territory of modern Ukraine.

Also, in Israel, they opposed the Polish bill on the Holocaust. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the Holocaust can not be denied.

State Department urges Poland to reconsider the scandalous bill on the Institute of National Memory: "Only our enemies win the differences between allies"



In a statement issued on Thursday by the Secretary of State for US Department of State Heather Noerth, the Polish authorities are calling for a revision of the law on criminal punishment for the public use of the term "Polish death camps" to determine the concentration camps and death camps built by the Germans in the occupied Germany in 1939, 45 years of Poland, attributing Poland and Poles responsibility for the Holocaust.

This is reported by Tsensor.NET with reference to the site of the US foreign policy department.

"From the differences that may arise between our allies, only our enemies will win," the statement said.

Recall that on January 26 the Polish Sejm supported the law on the Institute of National Remembrance . It is based on punishment for attributing to the Polish people the crimes committed by the Third Reich and other crimes against humanity, peace and war crimes. It provides for a fine or imprisonment of up to three years. The law was criticized in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.

In addition, the document caused a wave of indignation in Israel. Against him were the prime minister, the president, ministers and deputies of the knesset from the coalition and the opposition.

Polish President Andrzej Duda has promised to thoroughly analyze the law .

On February 1, the Polish Senate approved a scandalous amendment without changes.
