Russia vetoed a UN resolution accusing Iran of supplying arms to Yemen

Russia vetoed a UN resolution accusing Iran of supplying arms to Yemen

Russia vetoed a UN resolution designed by the United Kingdom to prevent a UN ban on arms transfers to Yemen.

This was reported by Associated Press.

"The resolution was supported by 11 countries, against the representatives of Russia and Bolivia. China and Kazakhstan abstained, "the report said.

The resolution states that Iran has violated the arms embargo imposed in 2015 by failing to "take all necessary steps to prevent direct or indirect supplies of missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles" to Hussein rebels in Yemen.

Representatives of Britain focused on the January report of the United Nations expert group on monitoring sanctions against Iran.

It says that last year the group has studied the remains of rockets launched by Husuits in Saudi Arabia and found that most of them "coincide with the Qiam-1 rockets developed and manufactured in Iran."

Immediately after the British project vetoed, a Russian project that did not mention Iran was voted on, but only prolonged sanctions against Yemen until February 26, 2019. The project was unanimously approved.

Recall that in 2015, between Husuits and government forces in Yemen, a civil war continues. Other parties - the so-called southern Yemeni separatists, al-Qaeda and the "Islamic state" - are also involved with it. The rebels seized the city of Sana, the capital of Yemen, and the president was forced to flee to the southern port of Aden.

Bandera has nothing to do with the Volyn tragedy, - former Polish prime minister Olshevsky criticized the "historic" law

Bandera has nothing to do with the Volyn tragedy, - former Polish prime minister Olshevsky criticized the "historic" law



Former Prime Minister of Poland Jan Olshevsky once again criticized an updated law on the Institute of National Remembrance.

This is reported by Tsensor.NET with reference to Radio Poland.

Commenting on the cult of Stepan Bandera in Ukraine, Yan Olshevsky noted that in Poland the national hero of Ukraine unfairly demonize.

"The crime of Stepan Bandera against the Polish people was really only one, and those who now speak loudly about banderism in Poland are often forgotten about it. This crime was organized in 1934 by an attack on the Polish Minister of the Interior, Colonel Bronislav Peryatsky, and what is important - During the trial of the accused, in particular Bandera, he was sentenced to death, "said former Prime Minister Yan Olshevsky.

The politician added that linking Stepan Bandera with the Volyn tragedy is a mistake. "After all, the Volyn operation was carried out when Bandera was imprisoned by the Germans," Olshevsky reminded, adding that Roman Shukhevych was to be associated with the Volyn tragedy, but this issue requires further research.

Yan Olshevsky believes that such mistakes as the incorporation of Ukraine into the law of the Institute of National Remembrance of Poland derive from high ratings of ruling politicians, which impedes them the ability to think rationally and pursue a real, firm policy.

Speaking about the importance of Ukraine for Polish interests, the former prime minister noted that if Ukraine were to lose its independence, Poland's independence would be at stake.

Recall that on January 26, the Polish Sejm supported an amendment to 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, as well as for the promotion of the so-called "Bandera ideology". The punishment provides for a fine or imprisonment for a term up to three years. The President of Poland Andrzej Duda has promised to thoroughly analyze this law.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said he was concerned about the decision of the Senate of Poland. The law was criticized in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.

In Israel, the document caused a flurry of indignation . Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that his country "will not cope with distortion of the truth, rewriting history or denying the Holocaust." Most Knesset MPs supported the Israeli bill proposed January 31, according to which the senators of Poland recognize the document as an illegal denial of the Holocaust. The US State Department spokeswoman Heather Noether expressed fears that the law could hurt the freedom of speech in Poland and, noting that the language of "Polish death camps" is indeed inaccurate and misleading.

More US sanctions against Russia expected in next 30 days, - Bloomberg

on Tue Feb 27, 2018 11:58 am
More US sanctions against Russia expected in next 30 days, - Bloomberg

U.S. Treasury Department is set to impose more sanctions against Russia within a month.
U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin said yesterday, Censor.NET reports citing Saleha Mohsin, the Bloomberg News reporter covering the U.S. Treasury.



As reported, the list of 114 Russian politicians and 96 "oligarchs" who have flourished during the reign of President Vladimir Putin fulfilling a demand by Congress that the U.S. punish Moscow for interfering in the 2016 U.S. election was released late Jan. 29.

The list was made public along with the Trump administration's surprising announcement that it had decided not to punish anybody - for now - under new sanctions retaliating for the election-meddling. Some U.S. lawmakers accused President Trump of giving Russia a free pass, fueling further questions about whether the president is unwilling to confront America's Cold War foe.

Known informally as the "Putin list," the seven-page unclassified document is a who's who of politically connected Russians in the country's elite class. The idea, as envisioned by Congress, is to name-and-shame those believed to be benefiting from Putin's tenure just as the United States works to isolate his government diplomatically and economically.

Being on the list doesn't trigger any U.S. sanctions on the individuals, although more than a dozen are already targeted under earlier sanctions.

Late July 2017, the U.S. Senate passed the new sanctions bill against Russia overwhelmingly and sent it to Trump for signature. Russia in response restricted U.S. diplomatic missions' access to several facilities and demanded to shorten the staff of the mission by 755 people by Sept. 1.

Trump signed the new bill on Russia sanctions into law on Aug. 2, but in a signing statement, he said he sees serious flaws in this document, although signs it for the sake of the national unity.
