In Russia they named the only reason why Putin is not ready to go on a big war on Ukraine

In Russia they named the only reason why Putin is not ready to go on a big war on Ukraine

According to Russian opposition leader Leonid Gozman , Russian President Vladimir Putin will not start a big war in Ukraine because of the danger of large casualties among his soldiers.

He stated this in an interview with UNIAN.

According to Gozman, so far, the war in the Donbas and Syria for Russia goes without great losses, the Russians are dying there, but they are not so much that the society noticed.

"Few and many, this is not just numbers, it's when many of us know such people. If I know, in this house the last couple of days hid a guy who died in Afghanistan and the same case - in my relatives' relatives, that means a lot losses, then, ours perish. Until now, neither Ukraine nor Syria has happened, "says the Russian opposition.

In the case of a full-scale war and the transition of Russian troops to the attack, according to Gozman, they will be able to win, but they are suffering great losses, as the professionalism of the Ukrainian army has grown in the recent times.

"Therefore, the readiness of the Ukrainian Army is a very important thing, because then he (Putin - ed.) Will not go into the attack," concludes the politician.

Recall that recently appeared detailed information about one of the Russian militants who died in Syria, and fought against it in the Donbas.

"The Security Service of Ukraine sent a people's deputy Nadezhda Savchenko to a poll for tomorrow (Tuesday, March 13th - ed), And today she left the territory of the country at 4 am," said the head of the GPU.

The Attorney General also noted that, as part of the investigation of criminal proceedings against V. Ruban, "the second message in this case will continue".

"This is a very serious matter, and I do not recommend anyone laughing at the individual facts that were promulgated by the Security Service of Ukraine. If they are analyzed in the whole array, and we will do this in the near future, after appropriate investigative actions against other members of this terrorist plot,"- added Lutsenko.

Recall that Vladimir Ruban was arrested on March 8 near the line of delimitation in the Donbass at the Konovalok "Myorslsk".

According to the SBU, in the car on which Vladimir Ruban ran, there were artillery mines, grenades, anti-tank guns and other weapons that they wanted to use for terrorist attacks in Kyiv.

On the morning of March 9, the Shevchenko court of the capital chose him a precautionary measure in the form of taking into custody for 2 months without the right to a pledge.

Ruban is charged with violations of articles of the Criminal Code on the illicit handling of weapons and the preparation of a terrorist attack.

Russia is ahead of NATO in expanding its borders, reports RAND

Russia is ahead of NATO in expanding its borders, reports RAND



The American RAND analytical center has published a report stating that the Russian Federation is now better prepared for ground operations at its borders than NATO.
This is the edition of The Economist, reports Tsensor.NET.

"America and its European allies in NATO spent $871 billion in defense in 2015, while Russia's $52 billion, but the recent report by the American RAND analytical center suggests that reality is a bit different now," the newspaper writes.

As the newspaper writes, it would be too difficult for Russia to deal with the hidden forces of NATO, if they were used. But in the early stages of the conflict, at least during the first month, and possibly much longer, the Alliance will lose in terms of the number of military and technology, as well as the radius of defeat. NATO commanders are afraid that Russia will be able to focus a huge amount of combat forces in the Baltic region over a short period of time.

So, analysts RAND have determined that the number of tanks Russia will outstrip NATO in the ratio of 5.9 to 1, in the infantry fighting vehicles - 4.6 to 1 in the missile artillery 270 to 0.

"And when NATO decides to take a significant advantage in combat aircraft, their effectiveness will be significantly reduced as soon as the Russians invade a powerful integrated air defense system," the material said.

According to Ben Barry of the International Institute for Strategic Studies, Russia has an advantage over NATO, due to the possibility of using its internal messages to quickly rebuild reinforcements, while NATO did not care to preserve its military transport infrastructure during the Cold War: bridges can not withstand weight. tanks, and the railway systems are not intended for platforms with heavy equipment.

Gazprom is delaying the execution of arbitration, but it is absolutely hopeless. Ukraine will get everything for a penny - Poroshenko

on Mon Mar 12, 2018 1:23 pm
Gazprom is delaying the execution of arbitration, but it is absolutely hopeless. Ukraine will get everything for a penny - Poroshenko



President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko reminded that every day of failure to comply with the decision of the Stockholm arbitration to compensate NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine for losses from transit of Russian gas will cost Gazprom PJSC $0.5 million.

Reported Tsenzor.NET with reference to Interfax-Ukraine.

"We have won a transit case, $4.6 billion is the amount of damage that Russian Gazprom needs to compensate for Ukraine... The current thesis that North Stream 2 needs to be built has far fewer supporters. One important detail: Gazprom is delaying the court to pay money in favor of NJSC Naftogaz... I would like to say that it is absolutely hopeless. Money will be paid, "the president said at a meeting with business community representatives on Monday In Kiev.

He noted that Gazprom will pay almost $0.5 million for each day of delay in payment.

"The day is $0.5 million - the price for non-compliance with the court decision, and I assure you that Ukraine will receive everything for a penny, given the relevant instructions, legal plans have been developed, and we will act in the near future to protect the interests of the Ukrainian state," said P. Poroshenko

As reported, the Stockholm Arbitration ordered Gazprom to pay NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine $4.63 billion for the short supply of agreed volumes of gas for transit. Thus, according to the results of two arbitration disputes between companies for the supply and transit of gas, Gazprom will pay NAK $2.56 billion.

For its part, Gazprom has confirmed that it will pay Naftogaz of Ukraine $2.56 billion by arbitration in Stockholm.

At the same time, Gazprom refused to start deliveries of gas to Naftogaz Ukrainy in March and repaid the prepayment, insisting on the necessity of signing an additional agreement to a valid contract for 2009-2019.

Ukrtransgaz said that Gazprom has not met the technical requirements since the beginning of the year, supplying gas to the Ukrainian border with a lower than contractual pressure.

Head of NJSC "Naftogaz of Ukraine" Andriy Kobolev said about Ukraine's gas shortage of about 10 million cubic meters per day due to frost and the refusal of Gazprom in its deliveries, because of this, proposed to introduce restrictions on gas consumption in the country on 3-4 March 2018.
