Thailand denies FBI agents meeting with Nastya Rybka in jail

on Tue Mar 13, 2018 1:01 pm
Thailand denies FBI agents meeting with Nastya Rybka in jail

The FBI agents appealed to the Thai authorities for a meeting with Anastasia Vashkevich (Nasteya Rybka) and Oleksandr Kirilov (Alex Leslie), who are in a Thai prison.

This informs CNN referring to the representative of Thailand.

According to the source, the FBI agents received a rejection of the Thai authorities, since only relatives and legal representatives allowed them to be detained.

The US Embassy in Bangkok did not confirm information about attempts by FBI agents to meet detainees.

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.

In February, on the Thai island of Lan, the police detained the organizers of sex education , among which was Nastia Rybka.

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.

Russia tries to accuse Ukraine of being involved in Violinist poisoning

on Tue Mar 13, 2018 1:05 pm
Russia tries to accuse Ukraine of being involved in Violinist poisoning

Russia is trying to blame Ukraine for involvement in the poisoning of Britain's former intelligence officer Sergei Skripal.

The alleged "Ukrainian trace" in this case was stated by the former head of the FSB, a member of the Russian State Duma Committee, Mykola Kovalev, in the commentary of RIA Novosti.

Kovalev said that the gas "Novichok", which could be poisoned by the Violinist, "could have been stored on the territory of any former republic of the USSR, including Ukraine".

A number of Russian propaganda media with a link to RIA Novosti appeared news headlines about the so-called "Ukrainian trail".

In addition, a Russian former special service officer said that the alleged violations of the Violinist are British intelligence services, "because it is beneficial to them, the United States and Ukraine indirectly".

The non-governmental organization Atlantic Council - one of the most influential research centers in Washington - said that the Kremlin version of Novichok's poison gas "sounds familiar." This is a typical reaction to accusations of Russia in international scandals.

In the Atlantic, Russia's behavior is called the 4D model: the rejection of allegations, their distortion, distraction, and, therefore, surprise.

"Judging by previous cases, in particular, the poisoning of the former Russian agent Alexander Litvinenko in England in 2006, and the downfall of the MH17 in the sky over the Donbas in 2014, we can expect the Kremlin to systematically use the 4D model in the coming weeks," experts said. Atlantic Council.

March 12, speaking to British deputies, British Prime Minister Teresa May announced that Russia "is likely to be responsible" for the poisoning of Sergei Skrypka and his daughter Julia.

She reported that both Russians poisoned the neuro-paralytic substance of a military type, which was previously developed by Russia.

May gave Russia an explanation of 36 hours "as a substance used against Sergei Skripal and his daughter, got to Britain".

On March 14, the British government will consider the response of the Russian state in detail, and if it does not trust, it will apply sanctions against Russia.

The US State Department supported the UK statement and suggested that Russia was involved in the poisoning of Russia's former intelligence officer Sergei Skripal.

On March 12, Putin first commented on the poisoning of the explorer Scribe. Previously, on behalf of the Kremlin, statements were made by the press secretary of Putin Dmitry Peskov about the case of the Violinist.

An official representative of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Maria Zakharova, called "the circus show in the British Parliament" a statement by Teresa May about Russia's alleged involvement in the Violinist poisoning.

Earlier it was reported that because of the Violinist poisoning, Britain could introduce its own "Magnetic List" against officials of the Russian Federation.

Recall that as a result of the poisoning of Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal in Salisbury, Wiltshire, in the UK, another 21 people were injured.

The violinist and his daughter are in a coma.

Earlier, the British police said that the Violinist was poisoned with a substance of nerve-paralysis. For its part, the British believes Russia is involved in the poisoning of the former intelligence violinist.

A 66-year-old citizen of Russia Sergey Skrypal was hit by a hospital with severe poisoning on March 4. With him was his daughter.

Sergei Skripal, Colonel of Military Intelligence of Russia on retirement in 2006, was sentenced to 13 years in prison for espionage in favor of Britain. He was found guilty of giving testimony to Russian agents working under cover of the EU, the Secret Intelligence of Britain.

The former intelligence officer was fired in an exchange between the United States and Russia in 2010. He was pardoned by then Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. Then Russia, besides Violinist, sent Igor Sutyagin, Alexander Zaporizhzhya and Gennady Vasilenko to the United States. At the same time, 10 people charged with espionage in favor of the Russian Federation were sent from the United States, including Anna Chapman.

The violinist soon became a refuge in the UK.

In Russia, they said that they had long been destroying the gas that could have poisoned the Violinist Skripal

"Russia not only stopped the production of nerve-paralytic gases, in particular Novik, but completely destroyed all stocks. This was done in accordance with international agreements under the control of international observers", - said Morozov.

In addition, he said that the kilogram of warlike poisonous substances, in particular, zarin, Russia was destroyed last September, and the production of chemical weapons stopped back in the 1990's.

10 ways Britain can punish Russia for Violin poisoning

on Tue Mar 13, 2018 1:41 pm
10 ways Britain can punish Russia for Violin poisoning

There are currently 10 ways to allow Britain to punish Russia for the poisoning of a former employee of the Russian GRU Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury

This is stated in the article The Guardian.

It is noted that even before the Violinist poisoning, the British Foreign Ministry sent a memorandum to the Foreign Affairs Committee, which said that Russia increasingly defines itself as an opposition to the West.

However, at the time, the Foreign Ministry emphasized that they wanted to reduce the risk of conflict and constructively interact with Russia in the interests of security and stability.

Now events in Salisbury have strongly influenced the situation. According to former adviser to Prime Minister of the United Kingdom on national security, Lord Peter Ricketts, the task now is to "punish Russia so as to make President Vladimir Putin sit down and take note of everything."

Thus, the publication listed a number of punishments that the British authorities could apply against Russia.

1. Deportation of diplomats

The minimalist version used by the government of David Cameron after poisoning by the Polonium of Alexander Litvinenko (formerly a Russian intelligence officer who subsequently became an opponent of Putin's government) in 2006.

The expulsion of the ambassador would be a serious step, but would leave Britain deprived of high-level communication channels in Moscow. Responses, in particular the expulsion of the British ambassador from Russia, will likely lead to a deep freeze of relations between the countries.

2. To request the Communications Authority (the television regulatory authority) to recognize that Russian media, such as Russia Today (RT), are not suitable for obtaining a broadcasting license

Public figures, including members of the shadow cabinet, or football manager Jose Mourinho, can be formally invited to quit the lucrative contracts that they signed to appear on Rt.

Such a move should be supported in France, where decisive measures were taken against fake news following statements on Russia's interference in the French presidential election.

3. To seek EU support to ensure that high-level sportsmen are not present at the FIFA World Cup

This will not lead to boycott of footballers, but, in any case, many countries are unlikely to want to follow this example.

4. Amend corrections to bills on sanctions and fight against money laundering

Legislation could be amended to provide for more stringent sanctions against those who violate human rights.

In particular, they are such people as the pursuers of the Russian accountant Sergei Magnitsky, who died in prison in Russia after disclosure of details about the massive fraud by the state.

5. Freeze the assets of Russian oligarchs who can not explain the sources of their property wealth in London

This would be legally dangerous and could affect so many of Putin's opponents, as many as the Allies.

6. To demand further sanctions of the European Union against Russia

Russia was the most sanctioned in the world - not including South Korea - but the country was resistant to punitive measures.

Often, the struggle is to persuade Germany, Italy and Greece to maintain the existing sanctions against the Kremlin against Ukraine against Ukraine. At the same time, according to most experts, these sanctions last year led to a decline in the rate of growth of 's economy by only 1%.

In a recent report, the Estonian Intelligence Agency said that Putin "uses Western sanctions to protect himself from criticism of unsuccessful economic policies."

7. Strengthen NATO's presence on the Russian border

The British Army already has a four-year rotational presence, but approaching Belarus will send a certain signal.

NATO could also exacerbate strategic pressure on Moscow by accelerating the process of recognizing Ukraine for its previous membership in the Alliance by agreeing on a membership action plan. Such an incentive can be offered in the Balkans - the key area of ​​the conflict with Russia.

8. To recognize Russia as the sponsoring state of terrorism

In the United States, such actions lead to a series of unilateral sanctions, including a ban on the export and sale of weapons, a ban on economic assistance and other punitive measures.

9. Disconnect Russian banks from the Swift system
Some Russian banks related to Iran were cut off from the international financial data exchange system (Swift). This may weaken Russia's ability to trade internationally, but Russian banks have switched to the Russian sweeping system SPFS, which has been formed with large non-G7 countries.

10. Deliberate leakage or publication of classified materials on the extent of money laundering by Putin and his allies

The British intelligence services have access to a large amount of materials, some of which are open, with details of how Putin, his family and business environment have moved money abroad. The British government could provide official information on this issue.

The disadvantage is that this will be seen as an attempt to intervene in the current Russian presidential election campaign.

On March 5, in the British city of Salisbury, the former Russian intelligence broker in the mall, after which he was hospitalized with serious poisoning with an unknown substance.

-British officials are threatened with sanctions if it is confirmed that Russia poisoned its former spy on British territory.

-In the UK, policemen were investigated who were investigating a case of poisoning of the ex-employee of the Russian GRU Sergei Skripal.

-According to Prime Minister May, because of Violent poisoning, ministers may refuse to visit the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

-The investigation has already managed to establish over 200 witnesses and gather more than 240 evidence, which are now "quickly and professionally" studied by relevant experts.

-On March 12, British Prime Minister Teresa May announced that the Russian Federation is likely to be poisoned by former Colonel Sergei Skripal, the Main Intelligence Directorate.

Sentsov in the colony writes scripts and refuses to work "on a regime", - lawyer Dinzhe

on Tue Mar 13, 2018 2:11 pm
Sentsov in the colony writes scripts and refuses to work "on a regime" - lawyer Dinzhe



Ukrainian director Oleg Sentsov, who is serving a sentence in the prison of Labitnangi (Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug of the Tyumen region), is engaged in a correctional institution with creativity, refuses to work and is ready to write a petition for pardon, told his lawyer Dmitry Dinze.

"Of course, the FSB continues to observe it, which was very clearly traced in the Yakutsk colony where he was one of the" Crimean terrorists. "There was also a nationalist of Hizb ut-Tahrirtyans... He did not speak to them at all. Individually keeps one - no one contacts with whom, does not write, writes scripts, creates, refuses to work, it does not interest him to work, as he says, "to the mode." He works on his own, waits for when he is fired. He was offered a job at the film studio or in the kitchen. It is a light job, for the "asset" - for those who vpratsyuye with the administration"- the lawyer said in an interview with Ukrainian service of "Radio Liberty", conveys Tsenzor.NET.

According to D. Dinze, O. Sentsov is in the barracks for 30-40 people. Convicted relations are good enough, they do not enter into conflicts, there are no complaints about him either: "It is important for him to have a pen and a paper so that he could write scenarios." Walking, some sport and normal relationships, he is unpretentious to the living conditions. on the occasion told me that if someone wants to help him, then he does not send him parcels, but the money, the things, the products of his sister will be sent, and she already arranges the transfer with the things he asks for."

Answering the question about whether O. Sentsov was forced to perform public works, the defender noted: "Oleg is a more or less privileged convict, special attitude and special supervision to him. Of course, he is using it." Colonies are not profitable to spoil relations with him, because he can inform the lawyers, and they will start taking the rubbish out of the house. "The talent of Oleg is that he can agree with everyone."

D. Dinze also confirmed that O. Sentsov opposed the fact that his mother and children arrived in due date because they were afraid of their psychological state of health.

Asked about a possible exchange and pardon from the president of the Russian Federation, the lawyer replied: " He waits for this, but he himself says that it will be very short, and if it is changed, then obviously at once to several people. As far as I know, the president of Russia reported that Sentsov was a superterrorist, an offender, who was discussed at all levels of the security forces, so that there was no quick decision on his release, but he found a principled position, did not commit acts as a bone in his throat became the central apparatus of the FSB. , respectively, to n First the tooth is. They are important to make it longer suffered. But the FSB and the FSIN (Federal Penitentiary Service. - Ed. ) different tasks. The first one is to swallow, the second - so that the person calmly sat and there were no scandals. Oleg is between these two lights. And Putin does not listen to either the well-known directors or the human rights activists. He listens to the security forces... All political prisoners, including Savchenko, passed through this procedure. Here you either write and go, or sit on. Oleg is ready to write (a petition for pardon - Ed.)".

In August 2015, the North Caucasian District Military Court in Rostov-on-Don sentenced the director O. Sentsov, detained in Crimea in 2014, to 20 years of a strict regime colony. The Ukrainian director was found guilty of creating a terrorist community on the peninsula. The Supreme Court of the Russian Federation later recognized the lawful sentencing. O. Sentsov is serving a punishment in the colony of a strict regime in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug (YANAO), better known as the "White Bear".

"Only Russia could do it" - developer "Novachka" Mirzayanov about Violinist poisoning

on Tue Mar 13, 2018 2:31 pm
"Only Russia could do it" - developer "Novachka" Mirzayanov about Violinist poisoning



According to the chemist Vila Mirzayanova, who is considered one of the main developers of the poisonous substance "Novachok", in Russia the formula of this substance is classified, so no other country could use it.

He told this to The Telegraph, according to Tsensor.NET.

Mirzayanov noted that the formula "Novachka" in Russia is not declassified, and therefore it is unthinkable that this substance could be used by another country.

"Only Russia could do it... They could send it anywhere in diplomatic baggage," Mirzayanov said, who emigrated from Russia to the United States in the 1990s after the publication of his article criticizing Russia in which he accused her non-compliance with international obligations to stop work on chemical weapons.

In addition, he said, former Colonel GRU Sergey Skrypal and his daughter Julia, even for a favorable development of events, will not be able to fully recover if they are really poisoned by the nerve-paralytic substance "Newbie".

"He is at least 10 times more powerful than any known poisonous substance of nervous-paralysis, and it is virtually impossible to heal this poisoning, and these people - a man and his daughter - are over with them, even if they survive, they will not be recovered," he said. - Mirzayanov explained.

According to his assumption, Salisbury brought two separate harmless components and already in Britain they were connected to an aerosol, one dose of which could suffice for a fatal outcome.

"Only 10 grams are already more than enough. In the summer, only two grams will be enough to kill 500 people," he said.

On March 12, British Prime Minister Teresa May announced that the violinist and his daughter were poisoned with the Novachok substance developed in the Soviet Union, and demanded that Moscow supply all materials to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. Otherwise, the politician threatened to equate the situation with "the unlawful use of force by the Russian state against the United Kingdom".

After that, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that the substance that was poisoned by the spy, "apparently came from Russia."

Recall that the former Colonel of the GRU stockpiles Sergei Skripal, who lives in the United Kingdom and convicted in 2006 for espionage in favor of British intelligence services, was injured as a result of poisoning with an unknown substance at the Salisbury shopping mall. In the case of poisoning, there are about 200 witnesses.

Russia prepares divisions for disrupting the deployment of a peacekeeping mission in the occupied Donbas



The Russian leadership has intensified preparations for the disruption of the deployment of an international peacekeeping mission in the temporarily occupied territories of the Donbas.

As informs Tsensor.NET, this is stated in the message of the Defense Ministry.

According to the Ukrainian intelligence, at the landing sites of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, located in the border regions of Ukraine, the hidden preparation of the so-called detachments of "Russian Cossack organizations" for further sending to the temporarily occupied territories of eastern Ukraine.

"It was established that the main focus of the preparation of the so-called Cossack units indicates the possibility of their involvement in measures to suppress civil disobedience actions in temporarily occupied territories, including by discrediting the speeches of the local population, dissatisfied with the occupation of Russia, among other main areas of training These so-called "Cossacks" are their ability to organize and conduct provocative anti-Ukrainian measures to create the illusion of an increase in the number of supporters of the idea of ​​the so-called "Russian world" on temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts", the statement reads.

Recall that on September 5, Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed the opinion that the presence of UN peacekeepers in the Donbas would be useful for resolving the conflict in eastern Ukraine, and instructed the RF Ministry of Foreign Affairs to make a draft resolution for consideration by the UN Security Council.

On September 20, Poroshenko, speaking at a UN Security Council meeting, said that Ukraine "needed a UN peacekeeping arm" and urged the Secretary General to send an assessment mission to Ukraine.

Irina Gerashchenko , the first vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, a representative of Ukraine in the Trilateral Contact Group on the settlement of the situation in the Donbas, said that the introduction of a UN peacekeeping mission on the line of collision in eastern Ukraine can not be the language, the peacekeepers must be introduced to the entire territory occupied by Russia.

Russian Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Vasyl Nebenzya, said that on Tuesday the Russian side sent a draft resolution on the deployment of peacekeepers to Donbas to the UN Secretary-General and head of the UN Security Council.

In numerous statements of the Russian authorities, it was emphasized that peacekeepers should be placed only on the line of delimitation of the parties to the conflict, but not on the entire occupied territory of the Donbas and especially not on the Russian-Ukrainian border.

Later, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that Putin had agreed to deploy peacekeepers across the Donbass to protect OSCE staff.

On November 14, representatives of Russia and the United States discussed in detail the possibility of deploying a UN peacekeeping mission in the Donbas.

On January 29, 2018, US Special Envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker stated that Russia was ready to ensure that the United Nations peacekeeping mission in the Donbass was deployed not only on the line of collision, but throughout the Donbas.

This is reported on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia, reports Tsensor.NET.

"March 18 at the Foreign Ministry of Russia summoned British Ambassador to Moscow L. Bristou First Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation VG Titov strongly protested in connection with the British authorities put on the allegations of Russia in the involvement in the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter of Julia.It is stated that the actions of British authorities are clearly provocative, the Russian Federation is not involved in the incident in Salisbury on March 4, 2007.

Without this, all statements London is meaningless.

"Any threat of" sanctions "measures against the Russian Federation will not be left unanswered. This should be understood by the British side," the Russian Foreign Ministry noted.

If Russia does not explain Violinist poisoning, we will consider it a use of force against Britain - ambassador

on Tue Mar 13, 2018 2:48 pm
If Russia does not explain Violinist poisoning, we will consider it a use of force against Britain - ambassador

British Ambassador to Ukraine Judith Hoff said that the British side's request to explain the poisoning of former intelligence officer Sergei Skripal is currently in force and Britain will wait for the answers of the Russian state. If this is not the case, the country will consider spy poisoning - "using force by the Russian state against Britain".

This is stated in the blog Judith Hoff on the site of the Ukrainian Truth.

According to Hough, experts identified the substance that Poisoned the Violinist, and believe that it is a compound called "Novice".

"Russia had previously synthesized this chemical compound and could do it now. Taking this into account, as well as our analysis of the facts of state murders committed by Russia and its conviction that the defectors were a legitimate target, made us conclude that there is a high probability of Russia's responsibility," she explained.

Hoff noted that the British authorities allowed only two scenarios of the Violinist poisoning: either the Russian authorities committed an assassination attempt on British soil, or the RF authorities lost control of the storage and distribution of the "Novice" and the connection fell into the hands of others.

The ambassador recalled Britain 's demand that Russia, by midnight on March 13, provided an explanation to Britain and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons about the way in which it had lost control over its stockpiles.

"In the absence of a satisfactory response from Russia, the United Kingdom Government will consider the incident in a US-sponsored assassination attempt on a British territory using prohibited weapons in violation of the Chemical Weapons Convention and international law. In a word, the illegal use of force by the Russian state against Great Britain", - she stressed.

Hof also pointed out that the Violinist poison "is fully integrated into the general canvas of Russian aggression, with which Ukraine is too familiar."

"In Crimea, on Donbass, and now, it seems, in Salisbury, Russia systematically destroys the foundations of international law and order. Russia's actions in Ukraine and in the Great Britain are a serious threat not only for our two countries, but for the entire law-abiding international community, "the ambassador emphasized.

May gave Russia an explanation of 36 hours "as a substance used against Sergei Skripal and his daughter, got to Britain".

On March 14, the British government will consider the response of the Russian state in detail, and if it does not trust, it will apply sanctions against Russia.

The US State Department supported the statement of the Great Britain and suggested that Russia was involved in the poisoning of the former intelligence officer of the Russian Federation, Sergey Skripal.

On March 12, Putin first commented on the poisoning of the explorer Scribe. Previously, on behalf of the Kremlin, statements were made by the press secretary of Putin Dmitry Peskov about the case of the Violinist.

An official representative of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Maria Zakharova, called "the circus show in the British Parliament" a statement by Teresa May about Russia's alleged involvement in the Violinist poisoning.

Earlier it was reported that because of the Violinist poisoning, Britain could introduce its own "Magnetic List" against officials of the Russian Federation.

As a result of the poisoning of Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal in Salisbury, Wiltshire, 21 people were injured in the UK. The violinist and his daughter are in a coma.

Earlier, the British police said that the Violinist was poisoned with a substance of nerve-paralysis . For its part, the British believes Russia is involved in the poisoning of the former intelligence violinist.

A 66-year-old citizen of Russia Sergey Skrypal was hit by a hospital with severe poisoning on March 4. With him was his daughter.

Sergei Skripal, Colonel of Military Intelligence of Russia on retirement in 2006, was sentenced to 13 years in prison for espionage in favor of Britain. He was found guilty of giving testimony to Russian agents working under cover of the EU, the Secret Intelligence of Britain.

The former intelligence officer was fired in an exchange between the United States and Russia in 2010. He was pardoned by then Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. Then Russia, besides Violinist, sent Igor Sutyagin, Alexander Zaporizhzhya and Gennady Vasilenko to the United States. At the same time, 10 people charged with espionage in favor of the Russian Federation were sent from the United States, including Anna Chapman.

The violinist soon became a refuge in the UK.
