The three US senators wrote a letter to Lutsenko asking whether Ukraine's investigation into Manafort is being blocked. DOCUMENT

The three US senators wrote a letter to Lutsenko asking whether Ukraine's investigation into Manafort is being blocked. DOCUMENT



Senators from the US Democratic Party urged Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko specifically to comment on the data contained in the New York Times publication on how Kyiv supposedly decided to "pause" an investigation into Paul Manafort in order not to offend President Donald Trump.

As Censor.NET informs with reference to the League, the relevant appeal, published on the US Senate website (PDF format), was signed by legislators Robert Menendez, Patrick Leahy and Richard Durbin.

We are writing to you to express concern about the reports that your office has taken steps that prevent the investigation of the US Attorney General  Robert Mueller,"- read in an open letter.

The senators stressed that such controversial information should not affect bilateral cooperation in legal matters, and reminded that the joint investigation of the "Russian case" matters not only for Mueller, but also for the disclosure of the schemes of the time of Yanukovych.

The Trinity of Senators in this connection asks Lutsenko's office three questions:

1. Did the GPU take any steps that would have prevented Mueller's investigation? If so, why?

2. Does someone from the Trump administration pick up the Ukrainian government or individual officials not to cooperate with Mueller?

3. Was any discussion of Mueller's inquiry in the context of the communication between the Ukrainian and American governments (and individual officials), including the timing of the meeting between the Presidents of Trump and Poroshenko in New York in 2017?.



Earlier, Deputy Prosecutor General Eugene Yenin said that the FBI Special Prosecutor Robert Muller did not apply to the Prosecutor General's Office for help in investigating the case against Paul Manafort.

Recall that the United States continues to investigate Russia's possible interference in the presidential election. Special Prosecutor Müeller finds out whether a trilateral headquarters agreement was negotiated with the Kremlin to undermine Tramp's rivalry from the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton. Moscow denies interference with the US elections and requires the submission of documents confirming this.

Putin's oligarch Vekselberg interrogated in the US on interference with the elections

Putin's oligarch Vekselberg interrogated in the US on interference with the elections



In the United States, secret services detained and questioned the Russian oligarch Victor Vekselberg on the basis of his possible involvement in the election campaign of US President Donald Trump.
This is written by The New York Times, according to Censor..NET.

According to sources, the agents of the special prosecutor Robert Müller, who is in charge of Russia's intervention in the 2016 presidential election, detained Viktor Vekselberg's Renova group owner at New York airport, and then interrogated a billionaire. It happened about two months ago.

Now, Muller's team does not consider Vekselberg as a direct participant in election intervention schemes, but he probably has information about the links between Russia and Donald Trump's election headquarters.

Investigators' interest also aroused the presence of Vekselberg at the inauguration of Donald Trump in early 2017 and his investment in the Bank of Cyprus, through which, according to Miller, funding was provided to Trump Election Headquarters.

Recall that Vekselberg, who is believed to have a favorable relationship with Putin, has become one of seven linked and Kremlin oligarchs who fell under the Tram administration in April.

The Pentagon revives the Second Fleet of the US Navy against the backdrop of a growing confrontation with the Russian Federation



The United States Navy rebuilds its Second Fleet, responsible for the northern Atlantic, seven years after its disbandment, as the Pentagon puts Russia at the center of its military strategy.
Reuters reports, informs Censor.NET.

"In our new national military strategy, it is clearly stated that we are back in the era of great powers' competition, while the number of challenges to our security is increasing day by day, and they are becoming more and more complex, so we are reviving the Second Fleet today to respond to these challenges," - said John Richardson, commander of the US Navy at the base in Norfolk.

According to the representative of the US Armed Forces, the Revived Second Fleet will deal with the administrative and operational management of warships, ground forces and aircraft on the eastern coast of the country. In addition, the northern part of the Atlantic Ocean will fall into its area of ​​responsibility.

The publication notes that in 2011 the Second Fleet was disbanded for reasons of economy.

"However, since then, Russia has become more insistent, playing its military muscles in conflicts in Ukraine and Syria, and the tension between Moscow and Washington has increased," the report said.

Currently, the Navy has six fleets, with serial numbers 3-7 and 10. The second fleet operated from 1950 to 2011.

Ukrainian vessel detained by Russian coastguards for 'illegal fishing' off Crimea coast



The Ukrainian fishing vessel YMK-0041 homeported in Ochakiv, Ukraine, was detained by the Russian invaders in the Black Sea for allegedly unlawful fish capture. Five crew members were taken to Russian-occupied Crimea.

As reported by Censor.NET citing UNIAN, Russian coastguards detained a Ukrainian fishing vessel (homeport Ochakiv) west of Cape Tarkhankut off the coast of the illegally annexed Crimea.

"The Ukrainian fishing vessel YMK-0041 homeported in Ochakiv, Ukraine, was detained," the press service of the so-called "Russia's FSB Border Department in Crimea told Krym.Realii news outlet. The vessel was detained for "illegal fishing."

The occupiers claim that the illegal fishing gear – several kilometers of nets – was seized. The trawler and crew of five Ukrainian citizens were taken to Crimea for further procedural actions. The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry has not yet commented on the detention of Ukrainian citizens.

On March 25, the Ukrainian Border Guard Service arrested the fishing vessel flying the Russian flag in the Ukraine's water zone of the Sea of Azov. The check showed that the vessel had previously called into Crimean ports in violation of the Ukrainian legislation.

On April 4, arrested vessel’s captain Vladimir Gorbenko was brought to Kherson for bail hearing. He was charged with violation of the order of entry into the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine and departure from it under part 2 of article 332-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

On April 6, Kherson city court remanded Nord’s captain in pretrial custody until May 31. He was later bailed out after a bail of 35,240 hryvnia (about $1,330) was posted for him.

The employees of the General Consulate of the Russian Federation tried to smuggle Nord’s crew out of Ukraine on the night of April 8. The day before, the vessel’s crew members were fined for unauthorized entry to the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine and leaving it.

On May 3, the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine said that Russian coastguards had started to inspect vessels heading to Ukraine on a daily basis. The inspections began on April 30 and were triggered by the March 25 arrest of the Nord trawler.
