Two options: Russia has declared Putin's defeat in Syria

on Sat Apr 14, 2018 2:44 pm
Two options: Russia has declared Putin's defeat in Syria

After the missile strike by the United States and its allies on government facilities in Syria , President Vladimir Putin has two options for action: either to enter a direct confrontation with the United States, or to continue the protracted conflict in the soft power field. Both options are likely to be losing.

The Russian political scientist Dmitry Oreshkin told this "Apostrophe".

According to him, despite the falling popularity in Russia, the topic of Russia's involvement in Syria, Putin can not leave it just like that.

" First, if he goes without a sense of victory, he will look weak in the eyes of the" patriotic public. "Secondly, his international status will be affected (this is his personal perception). There will be a cognitive dissonance: he went to Syria to They began to speak, listened to his words, and the fundamental problem was that, although they began to speak with him, but not in the language that Putin liked, they began to speak exactly in his language - a tense language of confrontation," says Oreshkin.

Therefore, there are only two variants in the Kremlin. The first option, a direct military conflict with the United States, is unlikely to be taken seriously, because for this purpose, there is no resource or opportunity in the Russian Federation.

"And if the blow fails, Putin has to stay there, leave the security forces - this is a rather expensive pleasure and, most importantly, is hopeless. As it may, the Assad regime can not control the entire territory of his country. The idea is probably to have an uncontrolled territory divided into zones of influence of Iran, Turkey, the Assad himself and, indirectly, Russia, and will have to enter into a conflict, for example with Israel, which does not allow Iran to be consolidated in the territory of Syria, which is closely adjacent to Israel," continues the political scientist.

Therefore, in the opinion of Oreškin, in the absence of a military conflict, the confrontation will go into the sphere of "soft power", which also has fewer resources in Russia than in the conventional West. Even if we can save the present regime of Bashar Assad in Syria, the Russian Federation will have to pay too much for this.

" Here are two options for Putin's defeat: one faster, another - more time-consuming. In any case, it turns out that Russia looks not as a coming country, but as a defensive country, Putin's Russia is subject to pressure, not the subject of a political game... That is, it's much harder to leave Syria than to enter. Now it will take a long and unprofitable pay for it, including Russian citizens, and they do not like it."- The expert concludes.

Russia was not warned: there was a reaction of NATO and the Kremlin to a rocket attack on Syria

Russia was not warned: there was a reaction of NATO and the Kremlin to a rocket attack on Syria

NATO supported rocket-bombing attacks by the United States, France, and the United Kingdom on sites in Syria in response to a chemical attack in the city of Duma, killing at least 85 people. In Russia, they said that the shelling occurred when Syria "got a chance for a peaceful future."

This is reported by DW.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the strikes "limited the ability of Syria's leadership in the use of chemical weapons."

Earlier, the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Armed Forces Joseph Dunford made similar statements. According to him, the targets of blows to the United States, Great Britain and France have become three objects related to chemical weapons. The first goal was to become a research center near Damascus, and the second was a chemical weapon near the city of Homs. A third blow was struck at the command post, located near the warehouse.

"This attack will, for a long time, aggravate Syria's ability to explore and produce chemical weapons," said Danford.

He also said that the United States did not warn Russia of the start of the attack, but the military sought to "minimize" possible losses among Russians.

At the same time, the RF Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the attack. An official representative of the ministry, Maria Zakharova, wrote in her Twitter that the shelling occurred when Syria "had a chance for a peaceful future." She also noted that the responsibility for the incident, including the western media, who posted videos and photographs of a chemical attack in the Duma, was carried out. Zakharov questioned these publications.

Russia's Ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Antonov, said that the strikes on Syria will not remain unanswered. He also noted that "the image of the president of Russia is unacceptable and inadmissible." The language most likely is about the statements of Trump about Russia and Putin in addressing the nation.

Let's remind you about the possible consequences of the conflict in Syria for Ukraine read in the story of "Apostrophe": Putin may take revenge for Syria in the Donbass: the dangerous scenario of the Kremlin is revealed.

Syria has seized more than 70 US and allied missiles - the General Staff of the Russian Federation

Syrian Air Defense (APO) intercepted 71 cruise missiles from 103 that were used by the United States, Great Britain and France.

This is stated in the statement of the General Staff of Russia.

"According to available information, only 103 cruise missiles were used. Syria's air defense assets, which are based on Soviet-made air defense systems, successfully repel strikes by aircraft and naval means of defeat, "said Sergei Rudsky, Chief of the General Operations Directorate of the General Staff.

As reported by the Pentagon, during the operation in Syria, more than 100 airborne missiles and air-to-ground rockets were released. Rockets hit the military and civilian targets.

On the night of April 14, the United States, Great Britain and France struck Syria.

British Prime Minister Teresa May announced that the Russians did not leave any alternatives . Subsequently, she said that the attacks on Syria should warn other countries against the use of chemical weapons.

The Russian Foreign Ministry reacted to strikes against Syria. Russia will convene an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council due to blows to Syria.

Attacks on the United States, Great Britain and France over Syria have been supported by NATO.

"This will reduce the regime's ability to continue to attack Syrian militias with chemical weapons," said the Secretary General of the Alliance, Jens Stoltenberg.

The President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, expressed his solidarity with the countries that struck Syria as a response to the use of chemical weapons.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel also supported the blows of the United States and their allies in Syria.

It will be recalled that on April 8, a hammer on a rebel-controlled city of the Duma in the Eastern Gut was carried out, which resulted in the deaths of at least 70 people.

Volunteer Rescue Service "White Helmets" said that more than 1,000 people were injured as a result of a chemical attack and already confirmed 70 deaths.

Later, the World Health Organization reported that the symptoms of 500 patients hospitalized after the bombing in the Syrian city of Duma show chemical poisoning.

On April 9, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons began investigating an attack in Syria.

On 10 April, the Syrian Government has proposed to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to send a team of observers to investigate allegations of a chemical attack in the city of Duma.

Trump called the Syrian president Bashar Assad a "animal," commenting on a chemical attack in the Syrian city of Duma.

United States Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Nikki Gaili, said that "the blood of Syrian children is in the hands of the Russian regime."

Permanent Representatives of France and the United Kingdom to the United Nations, François Delattar and Karen Pierce, at an emergency meeting of the Security Council, declared Russia and Iran responsible for the latest chemical attack in the Syrian city of Duma.

Russia blocked a draft US resolution on a new mechanism for investigating chemical attacks in Syria in the UN Security Council.

US President Donald Trump on April 11 posted a Twitter message advising Russia on "getting ready for new and smart" US missiles in Syria.

The Russian Foreign Ministry responded to Trump's statement about "smart" missiles in Syria and said that missiles should be launched in the direction of terrorists.

The French edition Le Figaro reported that after the threat of Trump in Syria, the main headquarters of the army of Assad were evacuated.

The Air Force, referring to informed sources, reported that Teresa May was ready to support hostilities against the government in Syria without the prior approval of the British Parliament.

In autumn, Russia is waiting for an oil and gas embargo, currency restrictions and disconnection from the Internet, - professor of Moscow University

on Sat Apr 14, 2018 3:23 pm
In autumn, Russia is waiting for an oil and gas embargo, currency restrictions and disconnection from the Internet, - professor of Moscow University

Western sanctions against Putin's regime will only intensify due to armed incursions into Ukraine and Syria

And soon they will become even more tangible for the population, Valeriy Solovey, Professor, Doctor of Historical Sciences, Head of the Department of Public Relations of the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO).

According to him, in order to understand what should be expected of contemporary Russia and Russians, one should draw attention to the example of Iran, whose economy and population are suffering from both external constraints and responses from their own government.

"There are three things that will be discussed seriously in the fall of this year (2018 - ed.): This is a ban on the purchase of Russia's debt and debt of Russian corporations, including "Sberbank", this is the first.

The second is an embargo on Russian energy sources. This will affect Gazprom, it will affect Rosneft and, in general, all Russian corporations. A complete embargo is impossible, but even what they can do (the international community - Ed.) Can be very tangible.

Thirdly, it is a total ban on the transfer of any tangible technology to the Russian Federation. This is a repeat of what they did about the Soviet Union in 1983-1986. And it should be admitted that these actions proved to be incredibly effective, "the political scientist said on April 13, 2018, on the radio station" Echo of Moscow".

In response, as now, in particular, in Iran, continued the professor, the Russian authorities will continue to introduce a variety of unpleasant restrictions for the population. Let's say the currency. In the same Iran, said Nightingale, individuals can not have more than 10 thousand euros.

In addition, according to Nightingale, Western social networks and messengers are perceived by the Kremlin as "uncontrolled digital space" and "the ability to communicate for politically non-loyal strata of society," for coordinating their actions and rapid mobilization."

In this regard, he added, the current Russian authorities can go to disconnect from foreign means of communication on the network:

"Limit the ability to enter a space other than Russia ... Under the threat (besides the already blocked in Russia Telegram's messenger, ed.) Will be Facebook. He will also not be in Russia for some time."

He also considers the "very real" possibility of limiting and total prohibition of the import of American medicines and raw materials to the pharmaceutical industry in Russia.

-Recall, April 6, the US government has implemented sanctions against the next 7 Russian oligarchs top 17 officials and 12 Russian companies since the Russian government is subversive and destructive policies worldwide, in particular, continues to occupy the Crimea and provoking violence in eastern Ukraine. The new sanctions mainly hit the aluminum king Oleg Deripaska and Victor Vekselberg, who is a long-time business partner of the leading co-owner of Alfa Group Michael Friedman, whose business is currently widely represented in Ukraine.

-As a result, the largest ruble collapse occurred after 2014, when the war with Ukraine just started.

-The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation promised to "toughly" respond to the US for -the introduction of new sanctions. The State Duma of the Russian Federation has already introduced an anti-punishment project against the United States.

-Subsequently, the US Congress offered new sanctions against Russia, which should hit the banks.

-Bloomberg reports that US sanctions prevented the sale of Russian government bonds.

After the meeting, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg plans to hold a press conference.

On the night of April 14, the United States, Great Britain and France struck Syria.

The French Ministry of Defense issued a video of a strike on Syria.

Merkel supports US and allies in Syria: "Military actions were successful and commensurate"

Merkel supports US and allies in Syria: "Military actions were successful and commensurate"



Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Saturday, April 14, that he is positively appraised by the attacks on Bashar Assad's regime in Syria carried out by the United States, France and the United Kingdom.

As Censor.NET informs with reference to Interfax-Ukraine, Merkel's statement is published on the website of the German government.

"We support the fact that our US, British and French allies as permanent members of the UN Security Council took on such a responsibility. The military actions were successful and proportionate in order to draw the attention of the international community to the use of chemical weapons in Syria and to avoid further violations by the Syrian authorities.", - the statement states.

"The purpose of this operation is to weaken the Syrian regime's ability to carry out attacks using chemical weapons," the German chancellor emphasized.

At the same time, Merkel noted that "Germany will support all diplomatic steps" aimed at counteracting the violation of the Convention on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

It should be noted earlier in the Pentagon that attacks in Syria have been targeted for three purposes related to the Syrian chemical weapons program. The goals were a research center, a chemical storage facility and a command post. All of them are located in Damascus and Homs.

Recall the humanitarian organization "White Helmets" reported that on the night of April 7, a helicopter dropped a barrel bomb with chemicals over the city of the Duma, which is considered the last center of resistance of jihadists and rebels in the region. Most affected civilians are women and children, activists said. Information about the attack was confirmed by the humanitarian organization "Union of Medical Assistance Assistance Syrians" (UOSSM), according to which the victims were not less than 150 people. The head of UOSSM Ghanem Tayyara called the "one of the most terrible" hiatus in the history of Syria.

The probable chemotac was sharply condemned by the United States, Germany, France and the United Kingdom. France and a number of other countries in this regard convened an emergency meeting of the Security Council . French Ambassador to the UN Francois Delatt at the emergency meeting of the Council of Europe stressed that Syria's statement on the destruction of all chemical stocks in 2013 was a lie.

United States Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Nicky Haley, said the United States will respond to a chemical attack in Syria, whether or not the UN Security Council resolution is adopted. The US Navy strike team with the Harry Truman aircraft carrier moved to the Mediterranean .

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Syrian state news agency SANA called the report a misdemeanor attack.

It should be noted that Ukraine is on the list of countries party to the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC). The ratification of the document took place in 1998. Of the 196 countries that may list, they have not joined the prohibition of chemical weapons in Egypt, North Korea, Palestine and Southern Sudan.

The Duma is the last city held by the Syrian opposition in the Eastern Guate. It is surrounded by Syrian troops, which are also supported by the Russian forces.

The United Nations peacekeeping mission in the Donbas should be different from the traditional format, which leads to the freezing of the conflict - Volker

on Sat Apr 14, 2018 3:31 pm
The United Nations peacekeeping mission in the Donbas should be different from the traditional format, which leads to the freezing of the conflict - Volker



The UN peacekeeping mission in eastern Ukraine will not be similar to other peacekeeping formats.

A spokeswoman for the United States Department of State for talks on Ukraine Kurt Volker expressed this conviction during a briefing in Washington, Censor.NET reports, referring to Ukrinform .

"I agree that many peacekeeping missions cost a very long time and led to a frozen conflict rather than helped to resolve it.Therefore, there are a lot of concerns and questions on this issue, but if we are talking about the situation in eastern Ukraine - this is a completely different issue," said the representative of the American administration.

He stressed that it meant not "traditional peacekeeping missions" that were introduced in the  UN system , it should be "voluntary participation" of different countries. "And their role there (on Donbas - ed.) Should be reduced to the transition mechanism in order to move away from the current situation under Russian control, to the situation under Ukrainian control, so it should be a transition mechanism," Volker explained.

He also stressed that Russia should see "a constructive mechanism for the implementation of the Minsk agreements". As the diplomat said, the United States is not going to initiate this without the consent of the Russian side, since Russia reserves the right to impose a veto on the UN.

Recall that on September 5,  Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed the opinion that the presence of UN peacekeepers in the Donbass would be in favor of resolving the conflict in eastern Ukraine , and instructed the RF Ministry of Foreign Affairs to make a corresponding 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 evaluation mission to Ukraine.

First vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, a representative of Ukraine in the Trilateral Contact Group on the situation in the Donbass Iryna Gerashchenko stated that the introduction of a UN peacekeeping mission on the line of collision in the east of Ukraine can not be the language,  peacekeepers should be introduced to the entire territory occupied by Russia.

The Russian Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Vasyl Nebenzha, said  that the Russian side had sent a draft resolution on the deployment of peacekeepers to Donbass 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 separation of the warring parties, but not on the entire occupied territory of the Donbas, and especially not on the Russian-Ukrainian border.

Subsequently, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said  that Putin agreed to deploy peacekeepers in all 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 Donbass.

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.

Missing Family Of Four In Eastern Ukraine Found Dead, Killed In Mine Blast

on Sat Apr 14, 2018 3:45 pm
Missing Family Of Four In Eastern Ukraine Found Dead, Killed In Mine Blast



Ukrainian police say a missing family of four has been killed in an antitank mine explosion near the front line in the eastern region of Luhansk, an area the United Nations has called one of the most mine-contaminated places on Earth.

Police officers discovered the bodies of a couple -- both man and woman were aged 57 -- their 38-year-old son, and his common-law wife, also aged 38, near the charred remains of a Chevrolet Niva.

The incident took place in a wooded area near the Siversky Donets River, which marks the front line between territory controlled by government forces and Russia-backed separatists.

The family members were residents of Pischane village in the Stanytsia Luhanska district of Luhansk region and were reported missing by a neighbor on April 7, according to police.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) identified one of the women as Nina Vasylivna, a Pischane community leader who talked with the organization days earlier about raising chickens and growing vegetables in greenhouses to feed residents of the frontline village.



Police believe the family drove over an antitank mine with the car, resulting in a large blast that killed all four.

Photographs published to the website of Ukraine’s National Police show tire tracks beside a swathe of scorched earth several meters wide, the destroyed car, and what appears to be one of the bodies splayed out nearby.

Investigators first classified the incident as a homicide but have since changed it to a terrorist act.

Forensic experts, bomb disposal technicians, and members of an investigative team were still working at the scene on April 11, police said.

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has called the area of eastern Ukraine where fighting has entered its fifth year “one of the most mine-contaminated places on Earth.”..............

The political process needed to resolve the bloody conflict in Syria needs a "new impetus," Maas emphasized. In his view, the existing international formats in Geneva, Astana and Sochi have not "pushed forward" the political solution to the conflict. Germany would like to "more actively than ever" to engage in efforts to end civil war, the minister said.

Maas expects that under the aegis of the UN will develop a long-term plan of action that is being implemented in Syria. The German minister also added that Berlin is hoping to use bilateral ties to persuade Russia to take a "constructive" position on this issue.

Representatives of the Federal Republic of Germany, France, Britain and the United States meet on Sunday, April 15, to meet in London to discuss the next steps that must be taken after a missile strike on Syria. Guy Maas said that the initiative was also discussed by the NATO Council.

Recall today, April 14, C SHA, France and Great Britain struck at objects of the regime of Bashar Assad in Syria that are related to the production of chemical weapons.

Lieutenant-General of the US Army Kenneth McKenzie said that all three targeted targets in Syria were successfully affected. The Syrian air defense system could not stop the Allies.

All NATO member states approved the actions of the United States and its allies for strikes in Syria, Stoltenberg



As a result of the emergency meeting of the North Atlantic Alliance (NATO), all the member states of the treaty approved the actions of the United States and its allies in the attacks on chemical infrastructure in Syria.

This was stated on Saturday after the end of the extraordinary meeting of the North Atlantic Council by the Secretary-General of the organization Jens Stoltenberg, informs Censor.NET with reference to UNIAN.

"All NATO allies have expressed their full support for actions aimed at limiting the Syrian regime's ability to use chemical weapons and prevent further chemical attacks," Stoltenberg said.

According to him, at a meeting of the Council, the United States, Britain and France informed allies about a joint military operation in Syria and on additional non-military measures aimed at strengthening the Convention on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

"The three allies stressed that a significant amount of information indicates that the Syrian regime was responsible for the civilian attack on the Dome on April 7, in which many children, women and men were killed.

They also made it clear that today's military actions were aimed at limiting the Syrian regime's capabilities and preventing the manufacture and use of chemical weapons. They stressed that there was no alternative to using force, "said NATO Secretary General.

At the same time, Stoltenberg expressed his conviction that those responsible for chemical attacks should be held accountable.

"NATO consistently condemns the use of chemical weapons as a threat to international peace and security," he stressed. The Secretary noted that despite the diplomatic efforts, the Syrian regime continues to use chemical weapons against its own people.

"We call on all members of the UN Security Council to honor their commitments. At the same time, we call on all those who support the Syrian regime, especially Russia, to take responsibility to ensure that the Syrian regime is constructively involved in the Geneva process leading the United Nations," he said. Stoltenberg

He also emphasized that there were no alternatives to military action and does not consider that night-time rocket attacks could undermine diplomatic efforts aimed at resolving the situation in Syria.

"We support the peace process led by the United Nations, there is no military solution to the conflict in Syria... We support last night's actions," the NATO Secretary General said.

Stoltenberg said that by the time the missile strikes last night, "NATO allies have exhausted all possible ways to resolve this issue through the UN Security Council through diplomatic efforts."

"But when it was blocked by Russia, there was no alternative but to react as the allies reacted last night," he added.

Recall April 14, C ShA, France and Great Britain struck at objects of the regime of Bashar Assad in Syria, which are related to the production of chemical weapons.

Lieutenant-General of the US Army Kenneth McKenzie said that all three targeted targets in Syria were successfully affected. The Syrian air defense system could not stop the Allies.

Russian air defense systems did not operate during the attack on Syria, - the Pentagon



American troops during a missile strike on sites in Syria did not record the activity of Russian air defense.

This was announced by the head of the Strategic Planning and Policy Department of the US Army Chiefs of Staff, Lieutenant-General Kenneth McKenzie, reports Censor.NET with reference to Lenta.ru.
He noted that there was no coordination or agreement between Washington and Moscow for an attack on Syrian facilities, but the US and Russian military spoke with each other through a special line to avoid conflicts.

Also, McKenzie said that Syrian air defenses did not intercept any American aircraft or missile. The Creeks responded by launching about 40 ground-to-air missiles, but this happened after the United States had completed the operation. He called the actions of Damascus ineffective and risky.

Today, April 14, SAS, France and the United Kingdom struck at objects of the regime of Bashar Assad in Syria, which are related to the production of chemical weapons.

Lieutenant-General of the US Army Kenneth McKenzie said that all three targeted targets in Syria were successfully affected. The Syrian air defense system could not stop the Allies.

NATO is ready to assist Ukraine in preparing for the adoption and implementation of the national security law, - Gottemoeller

NATO is ready to assist Ukraine in preparing for the adoption and implementation of the national security law, - Gottemoeller



The North Atlantic Alliance partners welcome the adoption of the draft law "On National Security of Ukraine" in the first reading and are ready to assist in its preparation for the second reading and further implementation.

This was stated during a meeting with Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic integration of Ukraine Ivanna Klimpush-Tsintsadze, spokesman for NATO Secretary General Rose Gottemoeller, according to Censor.NET, referring to the Government portal. She appreciated Ukraine's progress in the path of reform and stressed that one of the main expectations of NATO from Ukraine is now the law "On National Security", which establishes democratic control over the law enforcement agencies. Rose Gottemoeller is pleased that the draft law has been revised to take into account the comments received after its consideration by the Ukrainian parliament in the first reading.

Ivanna Klimpush-Tsintsadze expressed her hope that the bill will be approved in the second reading by the end of the current session of the Verkhovna Rada. The Vice Prime Minister said that Ukraine seeks to make full use of all opportunities to approach the Alliance, which were developed within the framework of the NATO-Ukraine Commission, in the annual national programs (RNP) and in the comprehensive package of assistance.

"This year we will make all our national action plans and strategic road maps subject to the objectives of the NNP of Ukraine-NATO cooperation, which details the steps that must be taken in the path of Euro-Atlantic integration of Ukraine," said Ivanna Klimpush-Tsintsadze.

According to her, the preparation of RNP-2019 has begun in Ukraine. The parties also discussed the situation with the holding of a meeting of the Joint Commission at the level of Heads of State and Government at the margins of the Alliance's summer summit, which is still blocked through the position of Hungary, and Ukraine's expectation from the NATO Summit. In particular, it is about returning the Allies to the position of the Declaration of the 2008 Bucharest Summit Declaration, which confirms the "door open door policy" for countries seeking membership and meeting its requirements, as well as inviting Ukraine to participate in the Enhanced Opportunity Program

Recall that the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine approved in the first reading the presidential draft law (№8068) on national security on April 5. The document proposes to define the mechanisms of leadership in the field of national security and defense, to normalize the structure and composition of the security and defense sector, the system of management, coordination and interaction of its bodies, to introduce an integrated approach to planning in the field of national security and defense in order to ensure sustainable and effective civil democratic control organs and formations of the security and defense sector.

The project also provides for the abolition of the three laws by combining them. These are the laws "On the Fundamentals of National Security of Ukraine", "On Democratic Civilian Control over the Military Organization and Law Enforcement Bodies of the State" and "On the Organization of Defense Planning".

The blow to Syria should not affect Russia's activity in the Donbas, Volker. VIDEO

The blow to Syria should not affect Russia's activity in the Donbas, Volker. VIDEO

America's Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker is confident that events in the Middle East and Ukraine should not be equated.

This is stated in the story of the TSN, reports Censor.NET.



The diplomat said that while considering Russia's financing and military support for militants in the ATO area, he does not consider that the Kremlin is preparing a new offensive in the near future.

"The Russians have been supporting the conflict in the east of Ukraine with tanks, mortars, infantry, electronic weapons, and everything imaginable for the past four years, so it's a matter of constant rotation of technology and people. I do not think that movements at the Russian-Ukrainian border now differ significantly from those that we have seen for three and a half years, "said Kurt Volker.

Recall that on Saturday night, April 14, the United States, France and Great Britain struck at objects of the regime of Bashar al-Assad in Syria.

The Pentagon said that strikes in Syria have hit three goals related to the Syrian chemical weapons program. The goals were a research center, a chemical storage facility and a command post. All of them are located in Damascus and Homs.

"Russian measure" is shrinking: Russia told about problems in Putin in the country through Donbas

"Russian measure" is shrinking: Russia told about problems in Putin in the country through Donbas

In Russia, more and more people from the national-patriotic sector of Russian public opinion feel hidden disappointment due to the "successes" of Russian President Vladimir Putin's policies in the occupied Donbas.

This Russian apologist Dmytro Oreshkin told the "apostrophe".

" Putin acted as a rescuer of the"Russian world, "but the limited resources do not allow him to bring the case to an end. "Novorossiia "has failed as an idea, and in the so-called LNRs and the DPR there is no prospect, what to do with them is unclear. the same Syria, only closer to Russia, or the same Transdnistria, instead of expanding the territories under control, which would be welcomed by a significant part of my compatriots, Putin got another isolated Transnistria, with the old Transnistria got under the blockade, finds out Xia is now surrounded by two hostile states, Moldova and Ukraine. Although by 2014 if Ukraine was not friendly, at least neutral,"- he said.

"The situation with the DPR and the LNR is about the same, only they are a thousand kilometers closer, that is, the same" Russian world "is shrinking, retreating and approaching Moscow.It's completely unclear what to do with the DPR-LNR: the accession of these territories to Russia, with a huge amount of expenses and does not correspond to Putin's strategy (he would, of course, want to leave them inside Ukraine),"- said the political scientist.
