In Russia, they indicated a clear defeat of Putin in Ukraine

on Fri Feb 09, 2018 6:51 am
In Russia, they indicated a clear defeat of Putin in Ukraine

Foreign policy adventures by President Vladimir Putin led him to strategic defeats.

This was told by the Russian political scientist Lilia Shvetsova to the "Apostrophe".

"Russia strategically lost in Ukraine during 2014-2015, and the Kremlin was forced to refuse not only the concept of" Novorossiia "(which implies actual seizure of the south and east of Ukraine - "Apostrophe"), but also from the concept of more massive penetration in order to undermine in internal affairs of other European countries", - the expert believes.

According to her, this failure was not the only one and Russia is currently in a very uncomfortable position.

"Russia's so-called" victory "on the Syrian ground also looks like a victory rather than a simulation of a tactical win with very unfavorable circumstances for Russia. As even now, we are assessing this situation, it is more likely not even a suitcase without a handle, but already weighing in Russian trousers", - said Shvetsova.

Military expert told how Javelin will change the situation in the Donbas

on Fri Feb 09, 2018 6:53 am
Military expert told how Javelin will change the situation in the Donbas

American anti-tank missile systems Javelin will significantly raise the price of the conflict in the Donbass for Russia, reflecting the desire of the Russians to participate in the war.

This was described by "the apostrophe" by a military expert and blogger Aleksey Arestovich.

"Plus Javelin have gone, and Javelin is a good thing, they're barking in vain. It's a game changing weapon, a weapon that changes the rules of the game in our favor. The price of the conflict is rising very much for Russia," the expert believes.

According to him, American weapons will provide a significant advantage to the Ukrainian army.

"The problem is not even in tanks, the problem is that tank crews will die, and where will they take new ones? What a fool from Omsk throwing his job as a watchdog supermarket and will go to burn in a tank near Donetsk with the prospect of being buried in the forest belt, to Russia Do not even get away? Such fools will be fewer with each new hit Javelin, "Arrestovich said.

Ukraine has been given a bright forecast for the collapse of Russia

on Fri Feb 09, 2018 7:03 am
Ukraine has been given a bright forecast for the collapse of Russia

Russia is surely expected to collapse, which will occur when the country runs out of money.

Such a forecast in an interview with "Apostrophe" was expressed by a military expert and blogger Alexey Arestovich.

According to him, resolving all existing military conflicts in the world is easy enough.

"To say: all, boys, we joked, we drove out all the troops and began to actively integrate into the free world, to modernize Russia itself and to invest in a meaningful thing for humanity. The only serious brake in the world that prevents us from ever moving into a more humane and innovative world - is Russia. A country that invoked humanity 50 years ago in space is now the main brake of this very humanity, and this is the merit of Volodymyr Volodymyrovych and people from his entourage, "he says.

In his view, after the US understood who they really are dealing with, they decided to act differently.

"They decided that they would list and start talking to these people in a different way, because there is nothing to stop," Arrestovich says.

For this reason, according to the expert, the collapse of Russia is just a matter of time.

"It will all fall apart when the money runs out. They will be some time later, but then they definitely will end." The stone age has stopped not because the stones have ended, are they? But the oil age will cease not because oil and gas will end, but because the world will switch to another package of technologies. And then what's the point of living a poor Russia? And when there is no money in Russia, all 83 federal subjects will start to choke each other for the last. And while on this fear and Volodymyr Volodymyrovych and Sergey Kuzhugetovich [Shoigu] hold on, which may come to him on They all live in fear - these people produce fear, they increase the amount of fear in the world, first of all - in the souls of their beloved Russians, they are traders in fear, they torture the Russian people, cripple Russia, they must judge by any country. its best representatives, not the worst ones. Here, for example, Vysotsky, the soul of Russia, a more Russian poet in Russia, apparently, was not. What would he say about all this? What would Shukshin say? And Gurchenko?"- summed up the blogger.

Imagine if China will annex Hawaii, and Canada will invade Maine, - McFaul explained to the Americans why it is impossible to recognize the occupation of the Crimea

Imagine if China will annex Hawaii, and Canada will invade Maine, - McFaul explained to the Americans why it is impossible to recognize the occupation of the Crimea



Former US ambassador Michael McFaul advised Americans who question the unlawfulness of Russia's annexation of the Crimea and RF aggression against Ukraine, to simulate a similar situation in America.

He wrote about this on his page in the social network, reports Tsensor.NET with a link to "Ukrinform".

"When Americans tell Ukrainians to be more pragmatic in communicating with Russia, I ask ourselves how pragmatic we are, Americans, if China will annex Hawaii, Canada will invade Maine, or Mexico will support separatists in California?" - wrote the former high-ranking diplomat.

His publication in the social network caused a lively discussion, which was also accompanied by provocative statements by users with Russian-language names.

During his first Barack Obama presidency, Michael McFaul served as Special Assistant to the President of the United States on National Security. From 2011 to 2014 he headed the United States Embassy in Moscow.

After dismissal from the diplomatic service and until now, McFaul works as a leading expert on Russia and American international politics. He currently holds the post of Professor of Political Science at the Center for Democracy, Development and Rule of Law at one of the most prestigious American universities - Stanford.

US Mission in OSCE: Responsibility for hot war in eastern Ukraine rests solely with Russian Federation

on Fri Feb 09, 2018 7:08 am
US Mission in OSCE: Responsibility for hot war in eastern Ukraine rests solely with Russian Federation



Responsibility for re-establishing peace in eastern Ukraine rests squarely with the Russian Federation while it is Moscow which must show political will to end violence.

As reported by Censor.NET, this was said by Chargé d’Affaires to the U.S. Mission in OSCE Harry Kamian as he was delivering speech to the Permanent Council of the OSCE in Vienna on Feb. 8.

"Contrary to the statements made earlier this morning by my esteemed Russian colleague, responsibility for the hot war that persists in eastern Ukraine rests solely and squarely with the Russian Federation. Responsibility for re-establishing peace in eastern Ukraine rests squarely with the Russian Federation," he said.

"Ambassador Sajdik, you’ve often talked about political will. If the political will exists in Moscow, an end to the suffering and a re-establishment of peace, support for Ukraine within the context of its internationally-recognized borders – recognized by the international community, can indeed be achieved. We wait for Russia to deliver on its commitments," the diplomat stressed.

"The United States is deeply alarmed by continued reports of gunfire in the immediate vicinity of our SMM patrols, most recently on Feb. 2. Further, as reported on Feb. 3 and 5, and again most recently in yesterday’s report, SMM UAVs are frequently targeted. We are concerned about restrictions on monitors as they attempt to move about the area controlled by Russia-led forces. In its Jan. 31 weekly report, the SMM reported that Russia and its forces denied access to OSCE patrols ten times, while on one occasion, Ukrainian forces denied access to a heavy-weapons holding area. These hostile actions and restrictions are blatant contraventions of the Mission’s mandate and they undermine the SMM’s ability to build confidence," Kamian said.

The video appeared as a nude activist Femen arranged a protest against Poroshenko at the Vienna Ball



On the body of Vinogradova was the inscription "Poroshenko, get the f ** k out of the ball!". The activist was arrested by local law enforcement officers. According to activists, the Vienna Ball is not a place for Petro Poroshenko.

"The visit of Prince Poroshenko to the Vienna Ball was eclipsed by a peak lady from Femen." The Ukrainian sexist Alisa Vinogradova turned to the aristocratic public with a proposal to ban her from the ball of the Ukrainian chocolate baron on the x-ray", - said in a statement on social networking.

As reported by the "Apostrophe", activist Femen arranged an arsenal of decorative tram with the inscription Tram to offshore (tram on the offshore) near the main store Roshen in Vinnitsa.

Russia refused to give Poland the wreckage of the Kaczynski plane

on Fri Feb 09, 2018 7:16 am
Russia refused to give Poland the wreckage of the Kaczynski plane

Russia does not transmit the debris of Tu-154M aircraft, during which the president Lech Kaczynski was killed under Smolensk , as the investigation in Poland did not end.

Such a statement in a commentary to RIA Novosti was made by the RF ambassador to Warsaw Sergey Andreev.

The diplomat said that according to Russian legislation, the wreckage should remain at the disposal of the investigation until the investigation is complete. At the same time, Andreev believes that the conclusions published in 2011 about the causes of the disaster should not cause doubt and that the issue of the return of the debris is highly politicized.

"The theme of the return to Poland of the wreckage of the presidential aircraft is overly politicized, with an artificially high explosion around it, as if this issue has some symbolic significance. Meanwhile, from a practical point of view, the question of where fragments are located - in Russia or in Poland - does not matter, "- said the diplomat.

Austria will not review sanctions against Russia

on Fri Feb 09, 2018 7:21 am
Austria will not review sanctions against Russia



Despite the economic losses for Austria, sanctions will apply

Austria does not intend to initiate a revision or weakening of the EU's sanctions against Russia, despite economic losses for itself. According to the Austrian President, Alexander van der Bellen, in Vienna at a joint press conference with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, Deutsche Welle reports.

In particular, Van der Bellen assured that Vienna would not initiate a revision or weakening of the sanctions policy of the European Union against Russia. According to him, without changing the situation in the Crimea and the Donbass, there is no need to revise the existing EU sanctions against the Russian Federation. Despite the economic losses for Austria, the very restrictions of the European Union against Russia, Van der Bellen called the "necessary measure".

The Austrian president also said that Vienna had not initiated a policy of restrictive EU measures against the Russian Federation and had not put forward any initiatives to abolish it. He also stressed the importance of implementing Minsk agreements in full. According to him, Vienna wants to make peace in the Donbass "as soon as possible". During the meeting, the two countries' presidents discussed economic issues. Van der Bellen noted that Austria ranked sixth in the list of the largest investors in the Ukrainian economy, while Austrian companies provide 30,000 employees in Ukraine.

According to the website of the President of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko is sure that one of the steps to revive economic ties could be the future of the Austrian-Ukrainian business forum during the March visit of Van der Bellen to Kiev. Poroshenko appreciated the prospects of investment in Ukraine as "attractive", pointing out that there was a significant easing of work for businesses with foreign capital in the country in recent times.

At a meeting with Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz Poroshenko promised that Austrian companies would be invited to participate in the competition for managing the Ukrainian gas transportation system. "We are confident that this will be a profitable and effective economic project," Poroshenko said.

Also, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has agreed with the President of Austria Alexander van der Bellen to hold a joint Ukrainian-Austrian business forum.

Devastation in occupation: the network showed fresh photos from Crimea

Several photos from the occupied Crimea appeared on the network, which show the poor condition of the resort towns.

They were published by a user with a nickname "MinPand" in Twitter.

"Just two of today's photos from Crimea, but without a binder," he wrote.

The images show that the city embankment has fallen considerably, iron constructions have been covered with rust, and there are no people on the waterfront at all. The other image shows a truncated kiosk and no hatches that were probably stolen.




The third image shows the hole formed in the asphalt.



"Innovative material takes the form of the first wheels then the bus, after they have replaced the pipe there, what you want," "nanosmartasfalte," - joke users.

US DoJ leads global arrests in bust of cyber crime ring

on Fri Feb 09, 2018 7:22 pm
US DoJ leads global arrests in bust of cyber crime ring

The US Justice Department has foiled a global ring of cyber-criminals that stole more than half a billion dollars over a period of seven years, in one of the biggest cases ever prosecuted. 

In an announcement on Wednesday, the DoJ said that it and other agencies around the world had arrested 13 defendants who were part of an organisation known as “Infraud”, which engaged in the large-scale acquisition, sale and dissemination of stolen identities, compromised debit and credit cards and other personal information. 

The defendants trafficked in data taken from financial institutions including HSBC and PayPal, the DoJ said in its indictment. 

The DoJ announced charges against dozens more individuals, saying the gang caused losses of more than $530m to consumers and small businesses. Intended losses were much bigger, the DoJ said, running to more than $2.2bn. Online aliases of the gang members, based in Australia, the UK, France, Italy, Kosovo and Serbia as well as in the US, included “Guapo”, “Moneymafia” and “TonyMontana”.

“Today’s indictment and arrests mark one of the largest cyberfraud enterprise prosecutions ever undertaken by the Department of Justice,” said John Cronan, acting assistant attorney-general. “The [DoJ] refuses to allow these cybercriminals to use the perceived anonymity of the internet as a shield for their crimes. We are committed to working closely with our international counterparts to identify, investigate, and bring to justice the perpetrators of these crimes, wherever in the world they operate.” 

The crackdown comes as banks and other financial institutions globally are spending billions of dollars to upgrade their defences against cyber attacks, fearing lawsuits and demands for the heads of top executives if they fail to fend off threats.

Last September Equifax, the credit-scoring company, said that hackers stole names, social security numbers, dates of birth and other identifying information for 143m Americans over a period of about two and half months. In 2015 a similar breach at Anthem, a health insurer, involved the social security numbers of more than 78m people.

According to the DoJ’s indictment, Infraud was created in October 2010 by Svyatoslav Bondarenko, a 34-year-old from Ukraine, who allegedly wanted to create the premier online destination for “carding”, or buying retail items with counterfeit or stolen credit-card information. Under the slogan “In Fraud We Trust”, the organisation directed traffic and potential purchasers to the sites of its members, which served as online conduits to traffic in stolen personal information, malware, and other illicit goods................
