Deripaska blamed US "shadow government" for manipulating "Russian theme"

on Fri Mar 09, 2018 1:47 pm
Deripaska blamed US "shadow government" for manipulating "Russian theme"

Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska has published an article in the American conservative edition The Daily Caller.

The article entitled "The Russian theme", which is constantly changing, is a mistaken manipulation by the audience."

According to the text, the "Russian theme" in American political discourse is run by a small group of people who manipulate public opinion.

In the column, Deripaska argues that modern American politics reminds Barry Levinson's film "The Tail Spins a Dog" (1999), where a non-existent military conflict was invented for the sake of victory in the election of the US president by political technologists. According to Deripaska, such a fictitious scenario is now a discussion of Russia's possible interference with American elections and internal politics.

The authors of the "Russian theme" Deripaska calls a "deep state" - that is, a group of elites who are trying to influence the work of the Donald Trump presidential administration.

"Technology and the decomposition of journalism based on facts have made it possible for a small number of people, surprisingly, to destroy bilateral or multilateral relations," writes Deripaska.

One Russian billionaire considers one of the victims of this group to be accused of having trumpe ties. At the same time, he noted that "personally acquainted with this group".

In conclusion, the businessman writes that fictional stories are preventing joint international efforts to address the most pressing, real world issues: health, climate change and the future of energy.

Let's remind, in the beginning of March Nastya Rybka has declared, that has records of conversations of the oligarch Deripaska about interference in the US election.

On February 8, Navalny presented a new investigation in which Russian Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Prykhodko was accused of corruption. The investigation was about the fact that an official in August 2016 spent three days on a yacht of the oligarch Deripaska near the shores of Norway, along with "girls from escort agencies".

Deripaska, according to Navalny, could have been one of the Kremlin's intermediaries in Russia's intervention in the US presidential election in 2016. It is this topic that the oligarch and Prikhodko allegedly discussed when sailing on a yacht.

In the US, they said that their submarines could "destroy Russia" if necessary

The head of the Strategic Command of the Armed Forces, General John Gayten, said that US submarines "are capable of destroying Russia if they make such a decision."

He stated this at a budget hearing in the House of Representatives Committee on the Armed Forces on Wednesday, according to Voice of America.

"They (Russians - ed.) Can not do anything but a massive attack against our country, which we would not be able to answer. By the way, they do not know where our submarines are located, and they are able to destroy their country if we follow this course, "he added.

Previously, US Defense Heads turned to Russia with a brief warning, noting that Washington was still able to respond, regardless of what Moscow possessed of nuclear weapons.

Bloodshed and blackmail: Named the countries where Putin can arrange new hot spots

on Fri Mar 09, 2018 1:51 pm
Bloodshed and blackmail: Named the countries where Putin can arrange new hot spots

Russian President Vladimir Putin is likely to continue to pursue a policy of fueling bloodshed and blackmail.

This is stated in the column for "Apostrophe" by a military columnist, editor-in-chief of the site "Information Resistance" Yuri Karin.

" The call by the US State Department spokeswoman, Kurt Volker, to intensify anti-Russian sanctions for the occupation of the Crimea is a clear signal of Russia's inability to settle in a peaceful settlement of the situation in Ukraine, so there is no need to wait for some relief from the aggressor. If Putin intends to go to the West, then in the first place will "merge" their friends Asad, Ina or Khamenei, and at the same time, in hybrid ways, to create new hearths of bloodshed for the continuation of blackmail. We can only guess where it will once again grow up - in the Balkans, in Afghanistan or Libya,...", - says the browser.

According to him, Russia will continue to use all available means to destabilize the situation in the world, as Putin simply does not have other methods.

"Under conditions of sanctions and total Russian corruption, Putin can only remain in power for another term with the help of threats and blackmail, and try to keep it for the next six years," said Karin.

In an example, he cites a recent appeal by the President of the Russian Federation to the Federal Assembly, during which a new nuclear weapon was presented.

"In the statements of the Foreign Ministry and Putin himself, it was clearly read that the bravura assault was intended for the domestic consumer and was exclusively pre-electoral in order to mobilize the electorate, as well as the thesis that the country chooses not the president, but the commander-in-chief", said the observer.

According to Tsensor.NET, with reference to Ukrinform, the Washington Post writes about it  .

The meeting was held on Thursday, March 8th.

"Former president of the presidential campaign, President Trump did not plead guilty to charges of tax fraud in the federal court of Virginia on Thursday, where he was brought before a judge in another criminal case that was initiated by a special prosecutor investigating Russia's interference with the 2016 election," - notes the publication.

Hearings were held in the District Court of Alexandria (near Washington - ed.). The judge has decided to leave Manafort under house arrest as a precautionary measure and continue to wear an electronic bracelet.

The trial of a jury in a case against Manaforth is scheduled for July 10. It is expected that the process will last from eight to ten days, and the jury will listen to 20-25 witnesses.

The detained interrogator Ruban is charged with preparing a terrorist attack

on Fri Mar 09, 2018 2:09 pm
The detained interrogator Ruban is charged with preparing a terrorist attack


On March 8, a former negotiator on the captives, Vladimir Ruban, was detained near the line of delineation in the Donbass. Ruban is charged with illicit handling of weapons and preparations for a terrorist attack. On the morning of March 9, the Shevchenko Kyiv court chose him a precautionary measure at the time of the investigation.

The court sentenced Volodymyr Ruban to the custody of the negotiator for 2 months without the right to make a deposit. Thus, the court upheld the petition of prosecutors. Attorneys were asked for house arrest.



Also, the deputy Nadiya Savchenko came to court . She wanted to get Ruban on bail. She learned about the detention of the cuttings today.


As Ruban Hromadsky himself said, during the interrogation investigators of the military prosecutor's office offered him to go for an exchange with self-proclaimed republics. He noted that "outraged" by such a proposal.


Arrested on March 8 on the line of demarcation, Vladimir Ruban was in a car in which he found weapons. The text of the suspicion is that he was trying to bring weapons from the territory occupied by Ukraine and was preparing an assassination attempt against the president.

"Having a friendly relationship with Zakharchenko (the leader of the militants of the self-called" DPR "), sharing his views, Ruban decided to kill the president, Avakov (the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Turchinov (secretary of the NSDC))", - read the text of suspicion judge Eugene Martynov.



In suspicion also it is said that on March 8, Ruban tried again for the transfer of weapons. For the first time he supposedly "tried and tested his weapons in Khmelnitsky". In addition, the text of the suspicion is that Ruban has been seeking accomplices for committing the planned crimes. They were "radically anti-Ukrainian-minded citizens Shashkin, Mezentsev, Zakharchenkov, Bereznya and Lyasch".



Ruban himself claims that the car, with which he was detained, did not belong to him. At the same time, he confessed to the transportation of civilian goods through a military checkpoint.  

"I did not know about the presence of this weapon. Performed only as a driver function, "Ruban said in court.



He denied the allegations, but at the same time, he noted that he knew Mzezentseva, who is an assistant to Nadezhda Savchenko.

"I know Oleg Mezentsev, he was an assistant to Savchenko, others do not know from the surnames ... And some probably, I know, with other names. I am a well-known citizen Shashkin, if it is Valery, who is related to the organization " Battalion Brotherhood ", - he said.

Savchenko himself told the Civic that the Miesenets was indeed her assistant, but recently resigned.

The entire detention operation, according to Ruban, was planned by an officer with a callous "Cedar" commander of the intelligence of the 8th Special Forces Squad.

"The investigation team was in a conspiracy, they left for another 5 days for my arrest, they now want to hang a medal for themselves," he said and rejected the charges against the court.

"I understand, I want to make terrorist number one", - added Ruban.



"One can not say that there is even a hint of a terrorist act in the actions of my client", - said Vitaliy Pogosyan, lawyer of Ruban.

"You indicate a group of people, and where is this group? Except Ruban, nobody is there. There is no reasonable suspicion of article 258 (terrorist attack). My client provided information on how this weapon was in the car. It has not been proved that this weapon was him, or that he bought it", - added the defender.

The attorney insisted on house arrest for his client.

"You say that he can cross the border, so why not intersect? You say that he has a passport, so take him away, there are levers in you without taking into custody, the more Ruban freed the so-called 700 hostages, that is, prisoners. This indicates that he acted in favor of the state. I think it is worth choosing home arrest, "he added during the meeting.

The second lawyer, Andrei Smirnov, stressed that the name Ruban could have been known to law enforcement officers six months ago. According to him, the situation with the detainees could be a provocation.



President Poroshenko ordered the head of the SBU to take Ruban's "personal control" case.

On the evening of March 8 it became known that Ruban was detained near the line of delineation in the Donbass. Ruban had an arsenal of weapons, which he allegedly tried to bring to Ukraine, said Deputy Minister for the Occupied Territories Georgiy Tuk.



Volodymyr Ruban served as a negotiator for the release of prisoners held in the territory of the occupied Donetsk region and Lugansk region in 2015-2016.

On February 27 last year, the SBU abolished Ruban's permission to cross the line of demarcation on the Donbass. Such a ban was introduced by the SBU after he and people's deputy Nadiya Savchenko arrived in occupied Donetsk.

Also, the SBU claimed that Ruban had no authority to negotiate the prisoners' exchange.

He directed one of the subprojects of the organization within the framework of the project "Ukrainian Federation", - he said.

According to Guskov, the idea of ​​federalization of Ukraine with the help of so-called People's Republics was laid in the project, which Ruban was engaged in. He added that this is not all information about Ruban's ties with the "Ukrainian Choice", which is at the disposal of the SBU.

"This does not mean that this is all that we have. That's all we can show now," Guskov said.

Ruben's arrest: an alarming prediction about the Kremlin's unfolding situation in Ukraine has appeared

on Fri Mar 09, 2018 2:27 pm
Ruben's arrest: an alarming prediction about the Kremlin's unfolding situation in Ukraine has appeared

In the next two years, the Kremlin will focus on shaking the situation within Ukraine, as evidenced, in particular, by the detention scandal and the rest of the head of the Ukrainian center for the release of prisoners "Officers' Corps" Volodymyr Ruban.

About this "Apostrophe" said a military columnist, editor-in-chief of the site "Information Resistance" Yuri Karin.

"The presidential, parliamentary and local elections will be ahead. In order to bring pro-Russian political forces to power, the Kremlin's special services will use all available arsenal of hybrid means - from information attacks to terrorist attacks. The fact that the time of such actions has come is clearly illustrating the detention of a valuable frame of the Putin Kuma (Victor Medvedchuk, ed.) - pseudo-general Ruban - with a whole arsenal of weapons on one of the KPVV on the line of separation,"- he said.

According to Karin, the issue of reelection of the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, for the next term has actually been resolved. It follows that after March 18, a screen covering the crimes against humanity around the globe should change. The propaganda direction for the lifting of sanctions for aggression against Ukraine will become more active.

"The pursuit of a truce in the Donbass is unlikely to be expected, since the fighting on the line of separation is a universal element of pressure and correspond to the Kremlin's narrative about the" lack of control "of quasi-formations (the so-called DNR-LNR, ed.) In Moscow. Plus, the incitement of hatred towards Ukraine inhabitants are being attacked by settlements occupied by the occupation forces, and propaganda hangs on the Armed Forces of Ukraine (Armed Forces of Ukraine - Ed.)", - summed up the expert.

Russia is working in the Balkans, and NATO has left the region with no attention. It is there that there may be problems, - Scaparotti



The American Chief of the North Atlantic Alliance in Europe, American Curtis Scaparotti, warns that the Balkans face increased covert and obvious pressure from Russia and that Washington and NATO should do more to keep the region from destabilization.
According to Tsensor.NET , referring to Radio Liberty, he stated this on March 8, when he spoke at the Senate Committee on Arms.

"The region I am concerned about today is, in fact, the Balkans, Russia is working in the Balkans, and we left the region unattended, so it's a region where we may have problems in the future," said Scaparotti, answering the question of what regions in Europe, in his opinion, is threatened by Russia.

One of the Balkan countries, Montenegro, became the 29th member of NATO last year. This step was sharply criticized by Russia.

The Montenegrin authorities stated that the Russian intelligence services organized an attempt to overthrow the country in 2016 on the eve of joining NATO. The Kremlin has rejected these statements.

Russia continues to have strong military and cultural ties with Serbia.

"You sell America to Russians!" - In Manafort, the flag of the Russian Federation was thrown and accused of treason

On leaving the court, the activist threw the Russian flag at the ex-head of the US presidential contender Donald Trump Paul Manafort, who has recently raised new allegations.

The second charge, which was brought against him at a meeting of the District Court in Alexandria, a FBI counselor Robert Mueller, Manafort did not admit guilty. The judge left him under house arrest and ordered to wear the second electronic bracelet. The case can be debated in July.

At a time when Manafort was coming out of court, one of the protesters threw him a Russian flag and shouted: "Here is your flag, the Russian flag, the traitor ... You sell America to the Russians. How much do you get for it?".

"Violation by Russia of Ukrainian sovereignty": US Representative to OSCE Announced Main Causes of Armed Conflict in Donbas



Russia's violation of the territorial integrity of Ukraine has led to a conflict in eastern Ukraine.
US Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to the OSCE, Harry Kamian, said in response to the Russian delegation's statement during the OSCE meeting, Cente.NET reports citing the Voice of America.

"In light of one of the comments made by a respected Russian colleague regarding Volker's special representative and the statements of the Russian delegate that led to the conflict in Ukraine, I want to give four simple points ... Contrary to the views expressed by the Russian delegate today, the conflict on east of Ukraine led to Russia's violation of the territorial integrity of Ukraine", - he said.

"What has led to the current crisis that we have in Ukraine is Russia's violation of Ukrainian sovereignty, which has led to a conflict in Ukraine, which is a violation of Russia's independence of Ukraine, which has led to the current conflict in Ukraine, which maintains the current conflict there and continues to be the greatest threat to regional stability and security, "said Camian.

According to him, this is "a repetition and continuation of violations of a number of key principles and commitments that we have in the OSCE."
