The elimination of the LNR-DNR will not: Russia has opened a new plan for Putin concerning Ukraine

on Sun Mar 11, 2018 1:58 pm
The elimination of the LNR-DNR will not: Russia has opened a new plan for Putin concerning Ukraine

The Kremlin will not be able to destroy Ukraine in a military way, but at the same time it will not stop supporting the militants of the Donbas.

The Russian journalist Semen Novoprudsky told about this "Apostrophe".

"It will not be resolved in the near future to completely destroy Ukraine by military means, but to eliminate the DPR and the LNR, too," the journalist says.

According to him, authoritarian tendencies will be strengthened in Russia.

"In general, Russia will continue to drift toward Putin's personalist dictatorship with more intense interference with private life of citizens, censorship in the sphere of culture and mass media, and also imperial insults in foreign policy and attempts to affirm Russia's importance in the world through hybrid wars and political provocations ", - stressed Novoprudsky.

He also believes that the Russian Federation is likely to try to destabilize the situation in Ukraine and intervene in the parliamentary and presidential elections of our country.

In Russia they called the only way the West could curb Putin

on Sun Mar 11, 2018 2:01 pm
In Russia they called the only way the West could curb Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin chose a strategy of a long game in confrontation with the West, hoping for a frequent change of power in Western countries.

This opinion was expressed in the commentary to the "Apostrophe" by Russian journalist Semen Novoprudsky.

"Putin does not hide what he puts on foreign policy and hopes to replay the West in the long game, given that the power in the western countries is constantly changing through elections, and in Russia, in fact, there is a life-long presidential rule," he says.

According to Novoprudsky, serious changes in the Kremlin's foreign policy are possible only after the imposition of personal sanctions against the largest businessmen and officials from Putin's environment. It is also necessary to introduce restrictions on the export of oil from the Russian Federation.

Putin's cyberattacks and compromise: US plans to respond to Russia's interference in elections

Yahoo journalist Michael Isicof and editor-in-chief Mother Jones David Corn wrote a book entitled "Russian Roulette: The Insider Story of Putin's War against America and the election of Donald Trump", which describes how the White House was about to respond to Russia's interference in elections. President of the United States.

This is reported on Yahoo's news site.

The book is based on conversations with then-White House employees.

One of the suggested options was the corresponding cyberatta under the leadership of the NSA against some Russian sites and the hackers Guccifer 2.0 and DCLeaks, which were involved in the theft of personal documents of representatives of the Democratic Party. In addition, it was a possible DDOS attack on intelligence agencies of the Russian Federation.

In particular, Celeste Wallander, Senior Assistant to Barack Obama from Russia and Central Asia at the National Security Council, offered to publish a classified compromise on President Vladimir Putin.

Thus, Wallander suggested organizing a leak of passages of classified data in order to uncover the bank accounts in Latvia of the daughter of Putin.

In addition, Wallander and then Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland proposed to transfer "to Russian sites rumors about the money Putin, friends of Russian officials, corruption in" United Russia ".

"We wanted to raise rates by the method that Putin acknowledged," said Nuland.

However, responding to the Kremlin for interference, American elections in the White House were eventually abandoned, as information on the preparation of the answer could leak in the media that "will drive the president in the framework" and force him to act.

A group of American senators headed by Sanders wants a dialogue with Russia

A group of American senators headed by Sanders wants a dialogue with Russia

Senator Democrats Edward Markie, Jeff Merkley, Dayan Feinstein, and Independent Senator Berni Sanders sent a letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson expressing concern over the exacerbation of tensions in relations with Moscow and urged him to launch a new round of strategic talks with Russia without delay, to minimize the likelihood of a conflict between the two countries

This is reported by "Voice of America".

"The need for US-Russia strategic dialogue is even more acute in light of President Putin's speech on March 1, in which he spoke about several types of new nuclear weapons that are allegedly being developed in Russia, including cruise missiles and submarine nuclear at this moment, do not apply the restrictions under the START Treaty, and the setting of which on arms can have a destabilizing effect, "the senators believe.

The Senators admit that Washington has, of course, significant disagreements with Russia, including about its "proactive intervention in the 2016 elections, its violations of the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Longer-Range Missiles, Military Intervention in Ukraine, and Illegal Attachment Crimea, as well as destabilizing actions in Syria".

At the same time, they write, "it is precisely because of these political differences, and not contrary to them, the US should urgently start a dialogue with Russia in order to avoid miscalculations and reduce the likelihood of a conflict."

They also call on the administration to raise the issue of violations of the treaty on RSMD, to extend the START III and to work towards increasing transparency in the field of non-nuclear weapons.

All these steps are designed to reduce the likelihood that nuclear weapons will ever be used again, said the legislators.

Commenting on a letter from American lawmakers, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, during a meeting with journalists during his stay in Ethiopia, said that Russia is always in favor of "maintaining a dialogue on strategic stability between Russia and the United States".

The initiator of this message, the vermont senator, Berni Sanders, represents the left-wing flank of the American political community and is one of the two senators who voted against the law in July 2017, reinforcing anti-Russian sanctions. In 2016, one of the most likely presidential candidates from the Democratic Party was considered a race, but eventually lost to the Hillary Clinton nomination.

Britain is preparing sanctions against corrupt Russian officials

Britain is preparing sanctions against corrupt Russian officials

Britain is discussing sanctions against Russians suspected of corruption and human rights abuses - London is preparing to ban entry offenders

According to Sky News , representatives of the Conservatives said that now with the senior ministers of the British government are being consulted on the introduction of the British version of the so-called "Magnitsky Act" in the law on sanctions, which now passes through the parliament.

The Magnitsky Act was approved in the United States in 2012. It is aimed at punishing Russian officials involved in the death of a lawyer, Sergei Magnitsky, who investigated corruption among officials.

The discussion of the possible approval of the "Magnitsky Act" in Britain began even before attempting to kill the former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia. However, it is believed that the case of the Defender would make the "Magnitsky Act" more lawful than the law.

The The Telegraph announces that Foreign Minister Boris Johnson and UK Interior Minister Ember Rudd have already agreed that London will propose its version of the "Magnit Act." In particular, the restrictions are foreseen for non-issuance of visas and freezing of assets.

As previously reported, Britain's Foreign Minister Boris Johnson warned Russia about possible sanctions if Russia's involvement in the attempt to kill the ex-spy Sergei Skripal was proven.

Five countries signed a letter to the EU on the danger of the North Stream-2

Five countries signed a letter to the EU on the danger of the North Stream-2

In Vilnius, the leaders of the parliaments of Poland, Lithuania and Latvia signed an appeal to the heads of parliaments of the EU countries, which condemned the construction of the North Stream 2 pipeline. Ukraine and Moldova signed an appeal earlier.

This is reported by "Polish Radio".

"The Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline is aimed at energy dependence of the European Union states on Russia," the statement reads.

"Due to the fact that this document was signed by a group of countries, and not by individual states, such a voice is more audible," - told reporters.

Speaker of the Sejm of Poland Marek Kukhtsinsky explained that due to the fact that the document "signed by a group of countries, and not by individual states, such a voice will be more audible".

"One principle is the general concern about the security of all EU countries, as well as those of its eastern part," he added.

The letter says that energy security will become a key component of a united and prosperous Europe.

According to the authors of the letter, in spite of the fact that the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline is presented as a commercial project, it is in fact "an instrument of the policy of the Russian state".

Poland, Lithuania, Ukraine, Latvia and Moldova have called on European countries to ensure that the operation of the gas pipeline will be in accordance with the EU rules.

Earlier, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Moravetsky, said that he believed the Nord Stream 2 was dangerous for Europe, especially for the Baltic region.

Earlier, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said that North Stream 2 would monopolize Russia's gas supplies to the EU.

Recall that on Jan. 31, Germany allowed the laying of "North Stream 2" on its territory.

At the same time, the United States opposes the construction of the North Stream-2.

"Nord Stream 2" is a project of a main gas pipeline from Russia to Germany through the Baltic Sea. One of the main objectives of the project is to stop the transit of gas through Ukraine, which will lead to a decrease in the revenues to the budget of Ukraine.
