Putin loses an important lever of influence on Russia: the United States made an unexpected conclusion

on Sat Mar 31, 2018 1:45 pm
Putin loses an important lever of influence on Russia: the United States made an unexpected conclusion

The tragedy in Kemerovo and its aftermath have shown that the Kremlin is deprived of one of the most important instruments in its domestic policy, which previously featured meetings of President Vladimir Putin with local residents and propaganda staging photos.

This is stated in the material of the private American intelligence-analytical company Stratfor, which is at the disposal of the "Apostrophe".

"The avoidance of relatives and staging photos are commonplace methods of the Kremlin when it comes to internal tragedies and, as a rule, have the desired effect in reassuring the protests, but this time they have only heated up public outrage," the report said.

Another obvious fact that points to the loss of control of the Kremlin are spontaneous rallies.

"Demonstrations spontaneously organized in 20 cities, and 15,000 protesters in Moscow, including many children and young people, were able to get together without official permission from the city authorities. Over the past year, Russia's population has become more politically active, and this tendency will continue, because internal problems The Kremlin continues to grow", - experts Stratfor are sure.

Accelerating the collapse: Khodorkovsky prophesied Russia the fate of the USSR

on Sat Mar 31, 2018 1:47 pm
Accelerating the collapse: Khodorkovsky prophesied Russia the fate of the USSR

The tragedy in Kemerovo exposed the main problems of the country's management of the Putin regime.

This was written on his Facebook page by Russian opposition politician Mikhail Khodorkovsky.

According to him, at the moment in Russia there is no rigid control system that saves the country from collapse.

"In fact, the country did not collapse just because there is no" hard vertical", but there are territorial and branch" estates", managed by the" governors "at their discretion, which are responsible to Putin and his assistants for the grave, for voices and for silence. And those who do not respond in the other to anyone, unless the runaway population starts to make too much noise, but it's better than no control at all!" - wrote Khodorkovsky.

At the same time, such a system does not allow the country to progress and gradually bring complete decay. The tragedy in Kemerovo can make Putin "tighten the nuts", which will make the system more rigid, but less stable.

"What we get? Accelerating collapse: what to do? Globally, without changing the system, nothing is done, but locally we can try to protect at least the most vulnerable points", - summed up the politician.

Ready for tough action: Russia gave an alarming outlook to Putin due to the expulsion of diplomats

The mass expulsion of Russian diplomats is a signal of the West 's readiness to move towards more decisive action against Russia.

This was stated by Russian political scientist, doctor of historical sciences, researcher Chatham House Lilia Shevtsova, reports Glavred.

"This is a gesture that says: if you do not stop cutting our windows, we are ready for more rigorous actions." The Kremlin is now painfully looking for a response: on the one hand, the Kremlin can not retreat and lose its face, so it is necessary to respond to similar actions. The Kremlin does not want to deepen the confrontation,"- noted Shevtsova.

According to her, Russia is now in a difficult situation in which she can no longer use the old model of behavior.

As reported by the "Apostrophe", the Russian Federation began sending out foreign diplomats in response to a scandal with the ex-intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Julia, through which a number of countries decided to expel diplomats of the Russian Federation.

The issue of providing Ukraine with military assistance in the field of cyber security is not yet considered - the Government of Canada

on Sat Mar 31, 2018 2:08 pm
The issue of providing Ukraine with military assistance in the field of cyber security is not yet considered - the Government of Canada



Canada strongly supports Ukraine, but will not provide military assistance to the country in the field of cybersecurity.

This is stated in the response of the Government of Canada to the report of the Standing Committee of the Federal Parliament on Defense, informs Censor.NET with reference to Ukrinform.

"Canada supports Ukraine's actions in the field of cybersecurity, in particular the development of a national strategy for cyber security, alignment of legislation with EU and NATO standards, and the improvement of internal processes for the exchange of information related to threats to critical infrastructure. However, the provision of military assistance in this area is currently is not considered", - the document says.

At the same time, the government added that "Canada is concerned about the increasing cybernetic intervention in Ukraine, in particular, in important civilian infrastructure, such as electricity grids."

The government response states that "Canada and its key allies share the view that international law must also be applied in cyberspace, both in peaceful and wartime." "Canada also supports the development of voluntary international standards of behavior in cyberspace, especially in peacetime," the document said.

In a statement released last December last year by the Canadian Defense Committee's Canadian Standing Committee on Canadian Support to Ukraine during the crisis and armed conflict, deputies urged the government to send military personnel to Ukraine to help cyber attacks.

Moscow continues to interfere in our political processes and undermines our democratic institutions - NATO Head of Military Committee Pavel

on Sat Mar 31, 2018 2:11 pm
Moscow continues to interfere in our political processes and undermines our democratic institutions - NATO Head of Military Committee Pavel



NATO will return to classical cooperation with Russia after the Kremlin begins to comply with international law.

This was stated in an interview with Aktualne, published March 30, by the head of the Alliance's military committee, General Peter Pavel, informs Censor.NET with reference to Gordon.

According to him, "Moscow continues to interfere in our democratic political processes and undermines our democratic institutions." At the same time, NATO witnessed both a cyberattack on the part of the Kremlin and an attack on former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal in British Salisbury.

According to him, this is an unacceptable violation of international norms and rules.

He added that the Alliance can not agree that "terrorist acts and actions" in Salisbury are normal. According to him, NATO can not allow the performers and organizers of the assassination to undermine the value of modern society.

At the same time, Pavel emphasized that the attack in Salisbury was "a background of irresponsible behavior in Russia": in 2014, the Russian Federation annexed the Ukrainian Crimea, violated the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and continued to destabilize the Donbas.

According to him, NATO's approach to Russia is based on "deterrence and defense policies", as well as readiness for dialogue. Pavel also noted that relations between the Alliance and Russia are seriously deteriorating due to lack of trust. "It's impossible to return to classical cooperation, while Russia will not abide by international law," Pavel added.

Proponents of the construction of the "North Stream-2" are the accomplices of Russia in its hybrid war, - Poroshenko

on Sat Mar 31, 2018 2:14 pm
Proponents of the construction of the "North Stream-2" are the accomplices of Russia in its hybrid war, - Poroshenko



The President of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, believes supporters of the construction of the North Stream 2 pipeline as Russia's allies in its hybrid war.

According to Cenzor.NET, referring to DW, he stated in an interview with the publication of the media group Funke, which will be published on Saturday, March 31.

According to the head of the Ukrainian state, the construction of the "North Stream 2" is a serious danger for Ukraine. On the one hand, Kyiv annually will lose $2 billion of fees charged for the transit of Russian gas to Europe. On the other hand, the Russian concern Gazprom is likely to reduce volumes of gas supplies to Ukraine and thus "weaken" the country, Poroshenko said.

He stressed that for Russia, "North Stream 2" is "an instrument of political pressure," and Germany and the north-west of Europe will depend more on Moscow.

The president also noted that the construction of the pipeline violates the principles of the European Energy Union.

According to Poroshenko, the case of poisoning of the former double agent Sergei Skripal will lead to the consequences for laying a pipeline to unite Russia and Germany.

Recently, Nord Stream 2, the founder and sole shareholder of which is Gazprom, received permission to lay the North Stream 2 site in the German economic zone.

On March 21, MEPs backed a bill by the European Commission that extends the rules of the EU internal gas market to non-continental gas pipelines, a northwest stream of 2 that in its present form does not comply with the rules of the so-called third energy package of the EU, since it is wholly owned Russian Gazprom.

Earlier, on March 11, the parliaments of Lithuania, Latvia and Poland made a joint statement against the construction of the North Stream-2. Estonia later joined them.

At the end of January 2017, the German authorities of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern agreed to the construction of the North Stream 2 gas pipeline under the foot of the Baltic Sea.

The North Stream 2 system consists of two parallel lines of the pipeline with a throughput of about 27.5 billion cubic meters of gas per year.

We look forward to helping Ukraine: the West told about the crisis in the EU and its weaknesses

on Sat Mar 31, 2018 2:17 pm
We look forward to helping Ukraine: the West told about the crisis in the EU and its weaknesses

To date, many heads of state that are members of the European Union have no idea of ​​Europe in their hearts: they are interested in some kind of financial support, and the rest are not very interested.

This was stated in an interview with the "Apostrophe" by the president of the International Peace Institute, the former member of the European Parliament from the Social Democratic Party of Austria, Hannes Freedom.

According to him, this situation needs to be changed, and Ukraine can help this EU.

"It would be absolutely fair to say that there was no clear, strong defense of the project of the European Union and of the world that we were able to achieve." Within the EU itself, there was not such a long period of peace. The First World War ended in 1918, and the next war began in 1939 that is, it lasted just over 20 years. Now in the EU itself, since the year 1945, myrrh is going on and economic development takes place, but people have to defend it, and politicians have to make it clear, but that's what was not done, "he said.

Freedom noted that the entry of the "Freedom Party" in Austria into a ruling coalition, on the one hand, is somewhat dangerous, since right wing parties have a slightly different concept of democracy.

"They think that we can just make a referendum, vote, we will get out with slogans and win. On the other hand, there is a chance that the right populists will be forced to accept the democratic rules of the game and the European Union," he added.

The politician clarified that since 1996 the European Parliament has received more power, influence, and it is very good.

"The European Union as a whole has also changed a lot, but I think that in the last two or three years there has been a rollback in the EU, including the European Parliament, because there is not enough strong leadership. We lost some of our competence and vision, and Europe was too involved. to all the possible small settlements that were very annoying to people and lost some things that are bigger and more important: strong economic, foreign and security policies, including joint border control, to give Europe a sense of community, "said Freedom .

He added that the common vision of the European Union has now been lost.

"And this happened, among other things, because European institutions - the European Commission, the European Parliament and, in part, the European Council of Heads of State - have lost a lot of energy to think about the next steps for Europe. Maybe Mrs Angeli Merkel (Chancellor of Germany, ed. ) and Mr Emmanuel Macron (president of France - ed.) will be able to revive the process by the European Council, but many other leaders of the states will have to follow their example, and here I see a lot of weaknesses, "summed up Freedom.

Canada is ready to impose additional sanctions to maintain pressure on Russia, the government

on Sat Mar 31, 2018 2:20 pm
Canada is ready to impose additional sanctions to maintain pressure on Russia, the government



If pressure is needed on Russia, Canada is ready to impose additional sanctions on supporters of the Kremlin regime.

This is stated in the response of the Government of Canada to the recently published report of the Standing Committee of the Federal Parliament on Defense, informs Censor.NET with reference to Ukrinform.

"The Government of Canada is ready to impose additional sanctions that will be needed to maintain pressure on Russia. Canada will decide on sanctions in close cooperation with international partners and allies, in particular the G7, NATO and the EU," the document said.

At the same time, the government stressed that more than 300 Russian and Ukrainian natural and legal persons are subject to Canadian sanctions. "These measures will remain in effect until they are lifted, and their duration is directly tied to Russia's full implementation of its obligations under the Minsk Agreements, as well as respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine," the text says.

At the same time, Canada is proud of its response to the international community's response to poisoning in the British Salisbury. This is stated in the message on the page of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Canada on Twitter.

"Canada is proud to be part of the collective response of 29 states to the use of chemical weapons in Salisbury - a disgraceful, malicious and reckless breach of rules based on rules," wrote the Foreign Ministry.

The ministry added that they consider the decision of the Kremlin to expel 4 Canadian diplomats "unjustified." "Canada regrets over the unjustified expulsion of 4 Canadian diplomats, and we will try to make their departure as easy as possible," the statement said.

On Friday, the Russian Foreign Ministry summoned the Canadian Ambassador to Moscow John Kura and announced to him that four members of the diplomatic mission should leave the Russian Federation.

At the same time, the regime of Bashar al-Assad and his Russian patrons carry out war crimes in Syria. This was stated by a deputy from the ruling Liberal Party Boris Vzhesnevsky during a speech at the International Human Rights Subcommittee of the Federal Parliament of Canada.

"We need to name things by their names, clearly stating that the Syrian regime and its Russian patrons - generals and diplomats - are involved in systematic, consistent, conscious, well-planned and thoroughly executed war crimes," said Vzhesnevsky.

He also cited several examples of these war crimes. "Use of forbidden weapons and tactics, civilian shelling, denial of UN documented cases of intentional massacres," the MP said.

According to him, Russian aviation was actively used to strike weapons with civilian targets in Syria. "At a time when UN diplomats discussed what was happening, Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov talked about peace, phosphorous bombs were loaded on planes to be dropped off at Rakka, and bunker bombs were loaded onto Russian planes to drop them to Aleppo for civilians, children, which hide in the basements", - stressed Vzhesnevsky.

The MP urged the international community not to be "outsiders" behind the tragedy of the Syrian people. "I have a question to all of us: what will we do with this?" - he appealed to the audience in the hall.
