Those were delivered just a few weeks ago," Nauert told journalists at Department press briefing on May 3, Censor.NET reports.

Russia opposes expansion of OSCE mandate to all sections of Ukrainian-Russian border in occupied Donbas, - Foreign Ministry

on Fri May 04, 2018 9:06 am
Russia opposes expansion of OSCE mandate to all sections of Ukrainian-Russian border in occupied Donbas, - Foreign Ministry

Ukraine's delegation to the OSCE condemns Russia's efforts to block expansion of the mandate of the OSCE to all sections of the Ukrainian-Russian border that is temporarily not under control of the Ukrainian authorities.

As reported by Censor.NET citing the statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, the delegation of Ukraine to the OSCE reiterates the importance of the comprehensive and permanent OSCE monitoring on the Russian side of the Ukrainian-Russian border in zones adjacent to the certain areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions which is critical for sustainable de-escalation and peaceful resolution of the international armed conflict started by Russia and taking place on the sovereign territory of Ukraine.

"We deeply regret that the Russian Federation persists in opposing expansion of the mandate of the OSCE Observer Mission at the Russian checkpoints Gukovo and Donetsk to all sections of the border that is temporarily not under control of the Ukrainian authorities. Such expansion enjoys support of the OSCE participating States, except the Russian Federation," Ukraine's delegation to OSCE said in a statement.

"Opposition of Russia can only be attributed to its unchanged position on continuing fueling the conflict in Ukraine’s Donbas, including by supplying heavy weapons, military equipment, regular troops, fighters and mercenaries, sponsoring and financing terrorist acts in the territory of Ukraine," the statement reads.

The delegation emphasizes that these actions by Russia constitute internationally wrongful acts, which entail the international responsibility of the Russian Federation.

In this connection Ukraine's delegation recalls that Russia has not responded to numerous requests for explanations on the OSCE SMM reported presence in the occupied parts of Donbas of modern Russian weapons and military equipment, including the jamming system R-330 Zhitel, heavy flame-thrower system Buratino, portable flame-thrower Shmel, Grad P, UAV Orlan-10, used exclusively by the Russian Armed Forces. Neither SMM nor OM at the Russian checkpoints Gukovo and Donetsk have verified the withdrawal of these sophisticated Russian weapons from the territory of Ukraine.

on Fri May 04, 2018 9:11 am
Putin's European friend made an unexpected confession about the development of the poison "Newbie"

Czech President Milosez Zeman said that the Novachok gas was manufactured and tested in his country, which had been poisoned by a former member of the GRU, Sergey Skrypov, in Britain.

He stated this in an interview with the local edition of iRozhlas.

"The conclusion is that our country was producing and testing the Newborn, even in small quantities and with further destruction. It would be hypocritical to pretend that this is not the case," said Zeeman.

An internal intelligence report showed that gas was produced and tested at a laboratory in Brno.

Earlier, Zeman spoke with scandalous statements about Russia's occupation of Crimea . He is also known as a critic of sanctions against the RF.

Recall that on March 4, a former GRU officer, Serhiy Skripal and his daughter, Julia, were hospitalized in Salisbury, UK, with severe poisoning. According to the investigation, a powerful nerve-paralytic gas "Novichok" was developed and manufactured in the USSR for an attempt on them.

Speakers of six EU countries’ parliaments sign letter on Nord Stream 2 construction inadmissibility, - Parubii

On May 3, whilst visiting Lithuania on the occasion of the country’s Constitution adoption anniversary, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Andrii Parubii said that speakers of six European parliaments signed a letter against the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Twitter of the Ukrainian parliament, Parubii said: "The fact that the speakers of [the parliaments of] six [European] countries have signed the letter on the inadmissibility of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline construction demonstrates the common approach and understanding of the energy threat posed by the Russian Federation to exert pressure on Europe and further extend its influence."

Nord Stream 2 is a gas pipeline project intended to secure the transport of natural gas from Russia to Germany across the Baltic Sea, bypassing transit countries.

On March 27, 2017, Naftohaz Ukrainy filed a claim to the European Court of Justice demanding European Commission to revoke its decision of Oct. 28, 2016 which allows the Russian Gazprom to significantly increase the use of OPAL gas pipeline and boost gas deliveries through the Nord Stream.

In December 2016, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Polish President Andrzej Duda made joint statement calling to review the European Commission's decision, which provided Gazprom the opportunity to increase gas supplies to Europe bypassing Ukraine.

The OPAL gas pipeline connects the offshore Nord Stream pipeline with the gas infrastructure of the Czech Republic. It started operating in 2011.
