Recall that due to possible involvement of Moscow in the poisoning of the former intelligence officer Sergei Skripal, Russia's diplomats are expelled from 27 countries, in total 151 representatives of the Russian Federation will be deported.

Russia threatened to respond to the expulsion of Russian diplomats from Ukraine.

On March 27, NATO Secretary General announced the deportation of 7 Russian employees.

On March 26, Ukraine, the United States and EU countries announced that they were expelled by Russian diplomats because of the poisoning of the Violinist in Britain. The 15 countries of the European Union have stated that they are in solidarity with Britain. At the same time, a number of EU countries have not yet sent Russian diplomats.

In Russia, they said they would send at least 60 US diplomats.

Earlier, British Prime Minister Teresa May announced the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats from the country in connection with the possible involvement of Moscow in the poisoning of the former intelligence officer Sergei Skripal. Also on March 26, it became known that Britain issued warrants for the arrest of Russian capital of dubious origin.

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.

Ukraine's ambassador to UN: We demand UN SC to take urgent action on peacekeepers deployment in Donbas

on Thu Mar 29, 2018 4:28 pm
Ukraine's ambassador to UN: We demand UN SC to take urgent action on peacekeepers deployment in Donbas



Ukraine's Ambassador to the UN Volodymyr Yelchenko recalled the need to introduce peacekeepers to the Russian-occupied Donbas during the UN Security Council’s open debate on peacekeeping operations on March 28.

"The situation in and around Ukraine has been an example of UN’s untapped peacekeeping potential for 4 years now. Our request for a peacekeeping mission in the Donbas remains without proper response. We demand UN Security Council and General Assembly to take urgent action," Censor.NET reports citing the statement by Ukraine's mission to the UN.

On Sept. 5, Russian President Putin said deployment of U.N. peacekeepers in the Donbas was quite appropriate for solving of the conflict in the region, but only along the line of contact and with the aim of protecting the OSCE mission.

Ukraine's representative in Humanitarian subgroup of the Tripartite contact group in Minsk talks, deputy speaker of Ukrainian parliament Iryna Herashchenko commented on Putin's statement and said the Kremlin scenarios will fail; peacekeepers must be introduced across all Russia-occupied territories.

Court of Appeal of Kiev left Savchenko in custody

The Kyiv Court of Appeal decided to leave Nadezhda Savchenko to the detainment of the People's Deputy (extra-factional) under arrest.

This is reported by the correspondent of Tsensor.NET from the courtroom.

In addition, the court partially satisfied the appeals of prosecutors - canceled the decision of the Shevchenkivsky court of Kiev in the part where it was stated that it was illegal to detain it.



"Shame" - cry supporters Savchenko.

"Ukrainian authorities are very similar to Russian, we need to change the power, so that we see an honest court. Until then," said Savchenko.





As it was reported, former People's Deputy Stepan Khmara and activist Irma Krat wanted to take Savchenko's bail.

Previously, Tsensor.NET wrote about the wishes of the Hero of Ukraine, dissident and people's deputy of several convocations of Stepan Khmara to take Nadia Savchenko on bail.

Savchenko himself, commenting on such allegations, said: "I was planning to show the authorities what it could be. I began to create surrealism."

The Standing Committee unanimously voted and recommended the Verkhovna Rada to support the submission of the Prosecutor General.

On March 22, the General Prosecutor's Office published operative audio recordings and video materials on the involvement of Nadezhda Savchenko in organizing and planning a terrorist attack in the Ukrainian parliament.

On the same day, the Rada revoked the immunity, as well as gave permission to detain and arrest Nadezhda Savchenko, a deputy.

After such a decision, Nadia Savchenko was detained in the premises of the Verkhovna Rada and taken to the SBU's investigative detention facility.

On March 23, Savchenko declared a hunger strike. On the same day, the court chose her a preventive measure in the form of detention until May 20.

At the same time Savchenko complained to the representatives of the ombudsman on video surveillance in the cell.

At the EU summit, which ended March 23, the EU countries supported the United Kingdom. Some countries, including Poland, are considering the expulsion of Russian diplomats.

In addition, the United States announced the closure of the Russian Consulate General in Seattle.

One of the main propaganda channels of the RF stops broadcasting in the United States

Russia's propaganda channel Russia Today, on Sunday, April 1, will disappear from TV screens in Washington.

"Attention to RT was turned on after intelligence agencies investigated Russia's individual attempts to intervene in the US presidential campaign in 2016, " the report said.

RT will also cease to be available on cable television. This is due to the fact that the WNVT and WNVC repeaters in the US in March 2017 sold hammer their frequencies for $ 182 million. For this reason, they will no longer cooperate with MHZ Network, which broadcasts the content of RT, Deutsche Welle, France 24 other foreign TV companies.

"We were thrown out of the broadcast network in Washington DC devoted to all who ardently and frankly persuaded us that the label of an inactive agent would not affect the work of RT in the States," - the words of editor-in-chief RT Margaret Simonyan are presented on the official channel site.

It became known when Russia could give the IDP-LNR militants an order to launch large-scale shelling of the ATO forces

It became known when Russia could give the IDP-LNR militants an order to launch large-scale shelling of the ATO forces

The General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces may order the restoration of massive shelling on the Donbass at a time when the issue of placing peacekeepers in the uncontrolled Ukraine's border with Russia will again arise.

This was stated in an interview with "Apostrophe" by the coordinator of the "Information Resistance" group, the People's Deputy, the military expert Dmitry Timchuk.

"Yes, but at any moment, from the same General Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia, there may be an order to continue active military operations. First of all, I can associate this with the possible start of a new stage in the discussion of the need for the introduction of a peacekeeping mission. We know that Putin already seems to have even agreed with the fact that peacekeepers can stand on an uncontrolled border with Ukraine, but we do not know how things will actually happen, "explains the expert.

According to him, it is important for Russia to divert the attention of the international community from the border. To do this will focus on the front line.

"And we know that even many representatives of European countries are also inclined to the point of view under the conditional name" if only not firing. "Just to form the idea that peacekeepers should be present only on the front line, at any moment can come a signal from the RF General Staff to continue active military operations in the first line", - suggests Timchuk.

The US is preparing for another blow to Russia: Russia's diplomatic assets in the US may be arrested



John Huntsman, the US ambassador to the Russian Federation, said that Russian assets in the United States could be arrested, despite the fact that the Vienna Convention applies to diplomatic property, as reported by replyua.net citing DW.

Thus, the diplomat recalled that, in addition to the Vienna Convention, which guarantees the inviolability of diplomatic property, "there are other agreements." He also stated: "There is the Vienna Convention, which guarantees inviolability. It is guided by the discussion of any situation. But also there are other agreements reached at different times, which in one way or another concern issues of diplomatic property, diplomatic facilities. So do not make assumptions about how the events will develop. "

Recall, the investigation of the attempted murder of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia continues. Living in the UK ex-colonel of the GRU reserve Sergei Skripal, convicted in 2006 for espionage in favor of British intelligence, was injured by poisoning with an unknown substance in the shopping center of Salisbury.
