In the Kremlin, amusingly responded to the lack of congratulations to Putin from Trump

Russian Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov commented on the lack of congratulations on Vladimir Putin's victory in the election of US President Donald Trump , saying that the Kremlin receives a lot of calls and letters.

It is reported by Life.

"There is no need to consider it an unfriendly step: the president remains open to cooperation where we are interested, there are many calls, because someone can not, because of the schedule, for someone else - well, the morning is wiser," said Peskov in response to information on that Trump can not congratulate Putin on victory.

The speaker also said that it is difficult for him to answer the question of whether there have been written congratulations from the United States. Peskov said that there are a lot of letters and it's difficult to say if there are any of them from Trump.

Earlier, the press secretary of the White House said that Trump did not call Putin to congratulate him on his election victory.

There is a fresh forecast on relations between the US and Russia after permutations surrounded by Trump

on Tue Mar 20, 2018 12:32 pm
There is a fresh forecast on relations between the US and Russia after permutations surrounded by Trump

Following the appointment of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, relations between the United States and Russia will be on the current, rather low level.

This is written by Russian journalist Mikhail Taratuta in an article for the publication Sobesednik.ru.

"As the appointment of Pompeo will affect Russia's relations with Russia, I think it will not affect it." It was already in Tramp that in many respects, contrary to the US Constitution, the tone is set not by the president, but by the Congress, supported by the press. In other words, while we can only wait for a stable and bad relationship", - the journalist believes.

He noted that US President Donald Trump had a fairly good relationship with Mike Pompeo during his term as head of the CIA.

"With Mike Pompeo Trump, of course, it will be much more comfortable." Between them, during the year, a special chemistry of relations was formed in the course of daily briefings, Pompeo sensibly caught the peculiarities of the president, did not judge immersion in detail, and, as they say, squeeze their reports to an absolute minimum, skillfully dispensing those messages that Trump would have been unpleasant to hear. According to his views, Pompeo and Trump are very similar, "Mikhail Taratuta said.

At the same time, he believes that Pompeii may somehow mitigate his rhetoric about Russia.

"Well, and where there are differences, as in the case of a more rigid line with Russia, Pompeo, it must be thought, correct itself. With Pompeo it will be more comfortable for world politicians, at least they will not be confused with the signals coming from Washington, - they will surely know that the new secretary of state speaks on behalf of the president, and not his own", - says a Russian journalist.

Playing on Russia's hand: Klimkin harshly responded to the accusations of Hungary

Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Vasyl Bodnar believes that statements against the deployment of a Ukrainian military battalion in Transcarpathia Hungary "plays the part of Russia."

He wrote about this on his Twitter page.

"Bypassing the EU-NATO sanctions, the Hungarian Defense Ministry is cooperating with Russia in the military-technical sphere, for example, there are contracts for the repair and purchase of military helicopters," Bodnar wrote.

As reported by the "Apostrophe", previously Hungary submitted to Ukraine claims about the law on education, which involves the transition of the educational process into the Ukrainian language.

The British Foreign Ministry unveiled a list of fake Russians in the case of the poisoned violinist

on Tue Mar 20, 2018 12:46 pm
The British Foreign Ministry unveiled a list of fake Russians in the case of the poisoned violinist

The British Foreign Office said that Russia was campaigning for misinformation about Sergei Skripal's poisoning instead of explanations.

In an official Twitter account, the ministry released a video showing fake versions of Russian state-owned media about those responsible for the poisoning of a former Russian spy.

"The Kremlin and Russian state media responded to the assault in Salisbury by denial, destruction and threats. They refused to provide explanations, instead they launched a campaign of misinformation, "the British ministry stressed.

The British Foreign Ministry cites the following versions of Russian propaganda:

-It did the Great Britain... to nourish anti-Russian sentiment;
-It did Ukraine... to substitute Russia;
-It was an attempt to suicide;
-It was a random overdose;
-This is the work of the Violence Teacher;
-The British laboratory Porton Down was the source of the paralysis of nerves;
Nerve-paralytic substance comes from the Czech Republic, Slovakia or Sweden.

British diplomats expelled from Russia will leave the country by the end of the week.

On March 14, British Prime Minister Teresa May announced the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats in connection with the poisoning of the former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal. In addition, Britain has declared the freezing of Russian assets in the country. Sanctions can affect Putin's immediate surroundings.

Also, Britain has warned citizens about the danger of traveling to Russia. In addition, May announced the meeting of the NATO Council on Chemical Weapons in Russia. Due to an international scandal, the Royal Family and British ministers will not go on World Cup 2018 in Russia. The British regulator in the field of broadcasting did not rule out blocking the Russia Today channel, working in Britain. Russia threatens to ban British media in case of Russia Today blocking.

March 17, the Russian Foreign Ministry announced the expulsion of 23 British diplomats "in response to Britain's actions." Also, the Russian Foreign Ministry has announced the closure of the British Council.

A United States spokeswoman at the UN, Nicky Hailey, said at an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council that Russia is responsible for a British chemical attack on Sergey Skripal and his daughter. The United States has supported the decision of Britain to send Russian diplomats .

Russian stock markets responded by a decline in Britain's statement.

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 Russian citizens were sent from the United States, including Anna Chapman. Soon, Violin became a political refuge in the UK.

The position of Moscow in the Violinist case becomes more and more strange, - the head of the Foreign Ministry, Boris Johnson

The position of Moscow in the Violinist case becomes more and more strange, - the head of the Foreign Ministry, Boris Johnson



Vladimir Putin as president is responsible for all actions of the Russian state, Boris Johnson sure.

Boris Johnson, Foreign Minister of the United Kingdom, said that all the evidence gathered in the case of the violinist, pointing to Russia's responsibility, and therefore the president of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, can not protect himself and his reputation from it, reports Tsensor.NET. The statement he made during an interview with DW.

In response to a journalist's question about why he believes that Putin had ordered the removal of the Violinist, Johnson noted that Putin as the president was responsible for all actions of the Russian state.

"Someone must answer, be responsible, and we in the United Kingdom believe that the evidence of a crime points to the Russian state, as in the case of Alexander Litvinenko, and if you remember, the traces of polonium were very clearly led to Russia. In the end, responsibility for the activity Russian state is Vladimir Putin, so I think he can not distance himself", - he stressed.

"Vladimir Putin himself claimed that the traitors, as a violinist, should be poisoned," Johnson reminded, explaining that it was Sergey Skrypel who was identified as the target of the attack.

Recall that an investigation into an assassination attempt by Sergei Skryptal and his daughter, Julia, continues. Sergey Skryple, former Colonel of the GRU stockpile, who lived in the United Kingdom and was 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.

It should also be noted that on March 12, Prime Minister Teresa May announced that  the British government had come to the conclusion that the responsibility for poisoning in Salisbury, a former GRG employee Sergey Skrypala and his daughter, most likely, lies in Russia. She also reported that the victims were poisoned by the nerve-paralytic substance "Novachok", which was developed in the Russian Federation.

The US made a loud statement regarding the use of laser weapons in aviation

on Tue Mar 20, 2018 1:26 pm
The US made a loud statement regarding the use of laser weapons in aviation

In the summer, the US Air Force will begin testing a laser to be installed on F-15 fighters.

This is reported by the Russian edition of "Voice of America".

In 2017, the Pentagon signed a contract with Lockheed Martin for the development of laser weapons. This program is called SHiELD (an acronym from "A High-Energy Laser Demonstration Sample for Self-Defense"). The contract amount was $ 26 million.

The aircraft will be equipped with a laser system with a capacity of about 50 kilowatts, which is designed to destroy unmanned aerial and cruise missiles.

"We will begin testing this summer and flight tests next summer. There are some technical issues that still need to be resolved. They mainly relate to size, weight and power," said Deputy US Air Force Deputy Assistant Jeff Stanley.

It is noted that the specified laser beams are invisible to the naked eye.

Focusing the laser beam on the target leads to its rapid heating from the inside, and then it should fall or blast.
