In social networks, they have already responded to this statement: "Putin has shown how to bomble Mansions of Unicorns in Miami," "The level of graphics on Putin's presentation video of ballistic missiles flying into the American continent." **** **** [crazy] old, for A month before the election, the US scares the nuclear strike. " "And you doubted in our northern Korean future! Russian chucka on the march!"

Putin declared war: Russian politician pointed to the threat of serious exacerbation between the United States and Russia

Putin declared war: Russian politician pointed to the threat of serious exacerbation between the United States and Russia

The recent demonstration by Vladimir Putin of a nuclear attack on the United States suggests that Russia itself is in conflict and is about to build a new Iron Curtain.

This was stated in a Facebook by Russian writer and former politician Alfred Koch.

He paralleled the reluctance of the United States to declare war on Nazi Germany, as long as Germany did not declare the US itself war.

"It seems to me that the story is repeated: now (as it should be!) - as a farce. The peaceful passivity of Trump and the sabotage of their anti-Russian congressional initiatives did not lead to anything positive: in his message Putin himself declared the war and precisely indicated the enemy," Koch writes. .

According to him, the Kremlin has recently been involved in a number of scandals and excuses, including the defeat of Wagner's PVR in Syria , the arrest of Russian-made ships in Tunisia , the cocaine scandal in Argentina . In this regard, the Kremlin needs to "urgently isolate the Russians from facts that show obvious crime, foolishness and inefficiency of power."

To do this, according to Koch, is possible only by closing the country, that is, bringing down a new iron curtain.

Alfred Koch is a former deputy head of the Russian government, as well as a writer and a journalist. From 2015, he lives in Germany, in Russia, a criminal case against him is open.

Did not cure: an interesting photo of Putin was shown on the network

Russian President Vladimir Putin has not yet recovered from a continuing illness .

In connection with this, the public speeches of the Russian president were canceled. It is also known that before that Putin abolished his business trip to Sochi.

At the same time, the sharp disappearance of Putin from the public space was also associated with the serious losses incurred by Russian mercenaries from the Wagner PVK in Syria. Read more about this in the column of Fame of Rabinovich on "Apostrophe" - Now it is clear why Putin was ill and disappeared.

In Russia, unexpectedly they wrote Ukraine to the allies in the event of a war against the United States

In Russia, unexpectedly they wrote Ukraine to the allies in the event of a war against the United States

Russian military expert Konstantin Sivkov believes that Ukraine can really help Russia in the event of a war against the United States.

This unexpected opinion he expressed in his article in the magazine "Military-industrial courier".

"Close in the ethno-cultural relation with the Russian population, speaking with it in one language, they will be irreplaceable in the conduct of special actions with a previous secret deployment" - says the expert.

It is worth noting that Konstantin Sivkov is a doctor of military sciences, a corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Missile and Artillery Sciences, a captain of the first rank.

According to Sivkov, "the scenario of NATO's war with Russia is already being implemented", but in addition to NATO, Russia is also threatened from the East. "China and Japan will force troops to Eastern Siberia, Sakhalin and Kuriles" in the event of the success of the United States and their allies. Apparently, the Russian expert came up with the use of Ukrainians as allies.

Among other ideas of Sivkova is the creation of super-powerful warheads capable of "initiating catastrophic geophysical processes in the United States, for example, the Yellowstone Super Volcano eruption."

Recall that in 2014 Russia with the help of its armed forces annexed the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea. Then the Kremlin unleashed the war on the Donbass and still continues to supply the militants with equipment, weapons, and sometimes uses its regular troops against the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Over four years of the war in the Donbass killed more than 10 thousand people.

"We just will not tolerate it," - Lukashenka has promised Russia to respond to the prohibition of Belarusian milk

President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko discussed during today's working meeting with Deputy Prime Minister Mykhailo Rusym the problematic issues of supplying Belarusian milk to Russia.

Lukashenka stated that between Belarus and Russia, disputes over the supply of milk began again. In this issue, it was entrusted to understand Michael Rusomu.

"But I want to say that without such an answer, such things will not remain, we just will not tolerate it. Because my special services inform that they brought from New Zealand or somewhere from the dry milk (this is their case), there were surpluses, and they start us hold on until they sell that milk at high prices, so they do not like cheap milk," said the president of Belarus.

"We will give our milk at the price that we consider necessary, and they let the Russians increase the price if there are Russian people, Muscovites or St. Petersburg, who have been eating with New Zealand milk, so I'm interested in how this issue is being solved," he said. he.

As reported, Rosselhoznadzor decided to postpone the March 6 deadline for the introduction of a ban on the supply of dairy products from Belarus in the Russian Federation. Earlier, the ban was scheduled to enter from February 26.

In the Ministry of Agriculture and Food of Belarus, they said that they had unknown reasons for the ban on the import of milk and dairy products to Russia, but the Belarusian side is ready to hold consultations with Russia on this issue.

In Poland, the scandalous "anti-Bandera" law has come into force: what can be got into jail

In Poland, the scandalous "anti-Bandera" law has come into force: what can be got into jail

On March 1, the law on the National Memory Institute came into force in Poland , also known as the "anti-Bander" law . According to him, the criminalization of the denial of the crimes of Ukrainian nationalists and the accusations by the Poles of involvement in the Holocaust is foreseen.

Since the document was published two weeks ago in the Official Gazette, now, according to Polish law, it is now automatically coming into force.

Although the Speaker of the Polish Senate stated that the law would not enter into force until the Constitutional Court had determined the controversies , the Ministry of Justice of Poland denied his statement. According to them, any law passed by the Parliament and signed by the president is obligatory for execution.

Recall that the new law provides for punishment for the expression of ideas about the involvement of the Polish people or the state in the crimes of Nazi Germany, as well as their complicity in these crimes or other crimes against peace and humanity. It is also forbidden to deny the crimes of Ukrainian nationalists. For all this is provided for up to three years in prison.

This law has already caused international community protests. In addition to Ukraine, the United States and Israel have also spoken out against the "anti-Bander" law.

"The arbitration court rejected Gazprom's claims regarding the fines for the volumes of transit gas, allegedly taken by Naftohaz illegally," the company added.

Earlier, the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce has been considering the claims filed by Naftohaz on behalf of Ukraine against Russia's Gazprom regarding the transit of Russian gas to the EU through Ukraine and the purchase of Russian gas by Ukraine. On Dec. 22, Naftohaz received the final award of the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce related to the gas purchase contract.

According to the deal, Gazprom was to transport via Ukraine 110 billion cubic meters of gas per year. Since the condition has not been met, Naftohaz demanded that the court recover $16 billion in compensation from the Russian company.

Gazprom will pay Naftogaz $4.63 billion for a short supply of agreed gas volumes for transit, the decision of the Stockholm court

Arbitration has decided to pay Naftogaz $4.63 billion. According to the results of two arbitration proceedings Gazprom blames $2.56 billion dollars.

"The Stockholm arbitration has met the demands of Naftogaz to compensate for Gazprom's lack of gas for transit. By decision of the Stockholm Arbitration," Naftogaz "has received compensation of $4.63 billion for the failure to deliver Gazprom's agreed gas volumes for transit," censored Tsentr. the press service of Naftogaz.

According to the results of two arbitration proceedings in Stockholm Gazprom will pay $2.56 billion dollars. US in favor of Naftogaz.

The Arbitration Court rejected the demands of Gazprom regarding fines for supposedly illegally selected Naftogaz gas transit volumes, the report said.

Recall that today between Naftogaz and Gazprom there are two contracts: for the supply of gas and for its transit through the territory of Ukraine. In 2014, proceedings were initiated in Stockholm for each of them.

In particular, the transit dispute is about lack of supply and underpayment for transit services in 2009-2016. As reported in Naftogaz, the transit contract stipulates that, in the event of changing conditions for the formation of transit tariffs in Europe, Ukraine has the right to request a revision of the tariff. Following the signing of the contract, the so-called Third Energy Package was adopted, and conditions for the formation of transit tariffs in Europe have changed significantly. Therefore, Naftogaz requires a transit tariff to be in line with European conditions. Gazprom refuses to review the tariff for more than 5 years. It was because of this that Naftogaz appealed to the Stockholm arbitration.

NAC also demands that the transit contract be brought in line with the European legislation that Ukraine has implemented in connection with the accession to the Energy Community. In this case, "Naftogaz" requires to charge Gazprom $12.3 billion dollars, the counter-claim of the Russian company - $0.007 billion dollars.

Facebook did not find evidence of Russia's intervention in the referendum on Brexit

Facebook has informed the British Parliament that during the investigation, there was no evidence of Russia's intervention in the Brexit referendum in June 2016.

This was reported by Reuters.

"By applying the same method that Facebook used to determine the intervention of Russian propagandists in the 2016 US presidential election, the social network verified both Facebook accounts and the activity of thousands of advertisers in the period before and during the referendum," the statement said.

Director of the Facebook division of the United States Simon Miller has pledged to open details of the investigation by the end of February.

Earlier it was reported that Facebook will introduce additional tests for buyers of advertising due to fears of interference from Russia in the US Congressional elections with fake and paid news.

Facebook also doubles security after a US investigation on Russian interference in elections.

Buried a doping scandal: Germany was outraged by the IOC's decision to sanction Russia

In Germany, they were upset by the decision of the International Olympic Committee to resume the membership of the Russian Olympic Committee in the organization.

The well-known journalist of the ARD channel, Hayo Seppelt, in Twitter, expressed the opinion that the president of the IOC, Thomas Bach, "buried a doping scandal."

"The decision of the IOC to put a risk to Russia's case ended with the fact that the OCD was restored in its own right. It was clear from the outset that Bach's puppets, hiding behind good intentions, would burst one of the largest doping scandals in history."

Recall, OCR was deprived of membership in the IOC on December 5, however, now restored in rights. At the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, Russian athletes acted in neutral status. In the course of the 2018 Olympics, banned drugs were detected in the blood of two Russian athletes: a curling Alexander Krushelnytsky and a bobsleeper Nadezhda Sergeeva.

Journalist described how Putin plays a sense of the dignity of the Russians

Journalist described how Putin plays a sense of the dignity of the Russians

Demonstration by Russian President Vladimir Putin during a call to the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation on a video of the first tests of the strategic nuclear missile complex "Sarmati" and statements by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Western preparations for striking nuclear weapons in Russia is nothing more than a manipulation of Russian pride before the election

This was stated by Russian journalist and publicist Leonid Radzihovsky in the column for "Apostrophe".

"The statements of Putin and Lavrov, in my view, are complementary, this is a menacing aggressive rhetoric on the topic of" Kuzkina's mother. "Lavrov, of course, is not self-contained, so the only meaning is the commercials" Buy "Sarmat", which Putin showed. The meaning of this action may be different. First: pre-election. As you know, there are no elections in Russia, but formally there is an electoral procedure. And in the framework of this election procedure, Putin today delivered his entire speech. In the first part, he spoke about what gingerbread will bring to the people. And in the second part, he "exposed the torso" and demonstrated that we are invincible, invincible, as we are throwing them "Sarmatians", - he writes.

According to the journalist, such statements should act on the Russians as a carrot after a whip and play in his favor before the election.

"Putin and his political thinkers are obviously expecting both parts to be equally liked by the population, the first one is to isolate the saliva, the second is to isolate testosterone from national pride and bragging, while Putin's second part of Putin's speech is completely absurd." In the first part of his speech Putin said: the problem of Russia is not that somebody can capture, conquer, take away the territory from us, the problem of Russia is in our technological backwardness, the second part shows (the US-oriented "Apostrophe" weapon) that we can destroy It is clear that these little contradictions are absolutely irrelevant, but the meaning has that that in the first part I promise, in the second I am proud. Both you and the other should like it. This is Putin's first message, addressed to absolutely no Americans, not to the residents of Florida, whom we can destroy by these "Sarmatians", but only to their voters, "- says Radzihovsky.

At the same time, the publicist is convinced that with such promises and boasts Putin actually does not earn anything for himself - neither in the ranking nor in the figures of appearance.

"The pre-election statement is meaningless, because if Putin did not say anything at all, then the result of the so-called voting would be exactly the same, and not only that Putin, of course, will be elected on March 18, but even on numbers." I think that his performance did not add anything to his rating, nor to those who will come to vote.However, ritual is a ritual.Sobchak ripples a glass of water in the face of Zhirinovsky, Putin rashes Sarmat to Florida - everyone has his electoral technology", - he concludes.

In the West, Putin's statements about a new powerful weapon were harshly criticized

Robert Schmucker, a German rocket science expert, considers Russia 's President Putin's rocket plans to be completely unlikely.

This is reported by DW.

According to the expert, Russia currently does not have the necessary resources to develop a nuclear-power cruise missile.

"This stuff would be too heavy. I can not imagine that they would create a small flying fusion reactor," said Shmucker.

According to Schumacher, Putin's statements are no more than "boastful." Another statement by the Russian president on the creation of hypersonic weapons - the scientist also considers "chimera".

Putin's statement on a new missile weapon violates the agreement on the RSMD - US Department of State

The use of nuclear weapons referred to by Russian President Vladimir Putin violates Moscow's international obligations, namely, the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Short-Range Missiles (RLMD)

This was stated by the spokeswoman of the US Department of State Heder Naurer, informs Radio Svoboda.

"Some of them (armaments - ed.) Do not comply with the treaty of the RSMD, which is especially worrisome for us. They (Russia - ed.) Do not comply with the PCM agreement from 2014, developing medium-range missiles of land based and cruise missiles, directly violating the treaty," - said Naurer.

She also noted that Moscow has been developing destabilizing weapons systems for over 10 years, in violation of its international obligations.

Naurer said that the State Department was watching Putin's speech before the Federal Assembly with great interest.

"It is clear that it was sad to watch video animation depicting a nuclear attack on the United States. We certainly did not enjoy it. We do not consider it a behavior of a responsible player in the international arena," Naurer said.

-Let's remind that Russian President Vladimir Putin during the appeal to the Federal Assembly declared a new strategic weapon - a nuclear missile cruise missile.

-The US Department of Defense said it was familiar with the statement of Russian President Vladimir Putin on the alleged possession of weapons capable of overcoming the missile defense system.

The Pentagon is ready for a "miracle weapon" that Putin threatens the whole world.



The US Department of Defense is familiar with the statement of Russian President Vladimir Putin on the alleged availability of weapons in Russia capable of overcoming the missile defense system

This was announced during a press conference by the spokeswoman of the Pentagon Dina White, informs the Voice of America.

"We were not surprised by Putin's statement, and the people of the USA should know that we are absolutely ready," the US Defense Ministry spokeswoman replied to a journalist's question regarding Putin's statements about the presence of weapons in Russia, which America, it seems, could not withstand.

At the same time, the US Defense Ministry spokesman rejected Putin's statements that the US-NATO missile defense system targeting Russia was targeted against the country, but stressed that the United States was confident in its ability to protect itself under all conditions.

"Russia is well aware that the missile defense system is not aimed at them. We need to ensure that there is an effective nuclear deterrent and we are confident that we are ready to protect this nation in all circumstances," White said.

She also stressed that the US military "has been watching Russia for a long time".

"These weapons have been developing for a long time, and our policy in the field of nuclear weapons all takes this into account," White said.

Let's remind that Russian President Vladimir Putin during the appeal to the Federal Assembly declared a new strategic weapon - a nuclear missile cruise missile.

President Poroshenko said that Javelin anti-tank  systems will be supplied to Ukraine  at the expense of the United States.
