Macron spoke with Putin about US withdrawal from Iran's nuclear deal

on Fri May 11, 2018 8:44 am
Macron spoke with Putin about US withdrawal from Iran's nuclear deal

President of France, Emmanuel Macron, has telephoned President Vladimir Putin with the release of the United States from the Joint Comprehensive Nuclear Action Plan with Iran in 2015.

The press service of the Russian president wrote about discussing issues related to the UN peacekeeping mission in the Donba.

"Agreed to intensify the work in the" Norman format,"- said in a message.

On May 8, US President Donald Trump said the United States would withdraw from an agreement on Iran's nuclear program and reinstate sanctions against Iran.

Later, Trump said he hopes to conclude a new "good deal" with Iran.

Iran called the US withdrawal from the nuclear program "illegal".

The EU is concerned about the release of the United States on the nuclear deal and the announcement of new sanctions against Iran.

The UN is "deeply disappointed" with the US withdrawal from a nuclear deal with Iran.

Earlier, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had announced the disclosure of "secret documents", according to which Iran violated the nuclear deal and continued to develop weapons. After that, Israel turned troops into a state of increased combat readiness due to the Iranian activity in Syria.

The White House supported the statement by the prime minister of Israel that Iran had violated the nuclear deal.

Later, French President Emmanuel Macron and US President Donald Trump have announced plans to work out a new agreement on Iran's nuclear program.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has warned the United States that they will face a "big regret" if Donald Trump withdraws from the 2015 nuclear deal.

In 2015, Iran entered into an agreement with the US and the leading countries to refuse to develop nuclear weapons in exchange for lifting some economic sanctions, including the ban on international oil trade.

The governments of the leading European countries consider the agreement with Iran an important condition for international security.

At the same time, a number of countries, in particular the current US and Israeli administration, express fears that the agreement does not provide firm guarantees for Iran's refusal to develop nuclear weapons.

Russian Deripaska's oligarch, who fell under US sanctions, returned leased aircraft

on Fri May 11, 2018 8:47 am
Russian Deripaska's oligarch, who fell under US sanctions, returned leased aircraft



Russian aluminum tycoon Oleg Deripaska returned three privately leased aircraft, since he could no longer use them because of the US sanctions imposed against him in April.

As informs Censor.NET with reference to Reuters, this was reported on Thursday by a company hired by aircraft owners to sell them.

Gulfstream Executive Lines are popular among wealthy and successful businessmen through a large range of flights and luxurious salon. Now the aircraft are put up for sale, the initial price of two of them is $29.95 million for each.

The return of planes indicates how much sanctions struck the Deripassi business empire, affecting not only Rusal, which is part of it, and whose sales and supply chains have been seriously hit by the actions of the United States.

Alireza Ittihadieh, director of Freestream, a company specializing in the acquisition and sale of aircraft that put up for sale three of the aircraft used by Deripaska, said that they belonged to Credit Suisse and Raiffeisen.

According to him, then controlled by Deripaska firms, they took the liners for lease through a private company.

"Who used them? Top management, including with Deripaska himself," said Ithihadieh Reuters on the phone.

"He will have to return aircraft under sanctions, his company under sanctions, and he will have to terminate the lease agreement in advance," he added, not specifying exactly what the sanction requirements are in this case.

The representative of "Rusal" said that the company refuses to comment. The representative of Credit Suisse in Switzerland refused to comment on the plane, but said: "Credit Suisse is working with international regulators wherever it conducts business to enforce sanctions, including compliance with the latest sanctions against Russia. The representative of Raiffeisen has said that he can not Answering the issue of the publication, as Thursday is a holiday in Austria, she added that she could not comment on potential clients through the law on banking secrecy.

Recall that Washington April 6 announced the imposition of sanctions against a number of Russian companies and their owners, including Deripaska. Those who are blacklisted are forbidden to enter the United States, and to American firms and citizens - any transactions with them and their respective companies. Companies based outside the United States may also be punished by Washington if the United States decides that these companies enter into major agreements with organizations that are subject to sanctions. Sources in the banking industry said that European banks are therefore afraid to engage in agreements with the participation of Deripaska or related companies.

A letter from the US Congressmen on anti-Semitism in Ukraine contains erroneous allegations that are already being used in the hybrid war of the Russian Federation

on Fri May 11, 2018 4:13 pm
A letter from the US Congressmen on anti-Semitism in Ukraine contains erroneous allegations that are already being used in the hybrid war of the Russian Federation



The Ukrainian state has never supported the Holocaust denial; in recent years, there has been no incident related to anti-Semitic violence in the country.

This is reported by Censor.NET with reference to the statement of the Presidium of the Vaades (Association of Jewish Public Organizations and Communities - Ed.) Of Ukraine regarding the letter of the US congressmen on the situation with anti-Semitism in Poland and Ukraine.

"A letter dated April 23rd was posted on the personal website of a member of Congress from the Democratic Party, Ro Hannah. The 56 congressmen who signed the petition expressed their concern about anti-Semitism and denial of the Holocaust, and it should be noted at the outset that much of the text was devoted to Ukraine. Resonance, he quoted, discussed and commented on a lot of media, both in Ukraine and abroad. It is worth mentioning that the text of the letter contains a number of allegations that are not They say the truth or at least incorrect wording.In the first paragraph, the statement about the "state-supported distortion and denial of the Holocaust" observed in Ukraine is clearly contrary to reality. "This accusation is absurd." We are not aware of any fact, if the Ukrainian state supported the denial of the Holocaust in one form or another. There are doubts that any of the congressmen who signed the letter can name at least one such case", - emphasizes in the statement.

"In post-Soviet Ukraine, memory of victims of the Holocaust is most preserved through teaching, research, memorialization, and the state is increasingly involved in this process, and there are very strong examples at the level of local authorities. In short, mentioning the imposition of punishment in Poland for the imposition of liability to Poland as a state and Poles as a people for the Holocaust (which, in our opinion, is completely mistakenly interpreted in the letter), congressmen assert: "Ukraine's laws from 2015 continue on in the glorification of the Nazi cola rationists and impose criminal responsibility for denial of their heroism. "This statement is also untrue.In the law of Ukraine" On the legal status and memory of the fighters for the independence of Ukraine in the XX century "there is nothing at all about someone's heroism, nor the responsibility for his objection. Actually, the interpretation of this law as a glorification can be challenged. The law, in essence, makes it clear that the participants in the struggle for Ukrainian independence fought for Ukrainian independence. Well, of course, in the text of the law there are no Ukrainian collaborationist organizations in the list of dozens of organizations and groups - such as the SS Galicia Division or the battalion of the abbey Nachtigall. Obviously, the author of the letter reacted to the reputation of the law in distorted translations, and did not burden himself with reading his text", - noted in Vaad. in the text of the law, there are no Ukrainian collaborative formations in the list of dozens of organizations and groups, such as the SS Galicia Division or the Nachtigall Abbey Battalion. Obviously, the author of the letter reacted to the reputation of the law in distorted translations, and did not burden himself with reading his text", - noted in Vaad. in the text of the law, there are no Ukrainian collaborative formations in the list of dozens of organizations and groups, such as the SS Galicia Division or the Nachtigall Abbey Battalion. Obviously, the author of the letter reacted to the reputation of the law in distorted translations, and did not burden himself with reading his text", - noted in Vaad.

"The policy of historical memory in modern Ukraine is now a difficult path of formation, and the field for discussions is open. The law of the UINP on decommissioning in the area of ​​academic historical science raises somewhat critical remarks, which only confirms the openness of Ukraine, civil society, education and science. it is necessary to imagine a Ukrainian society as a whole nation that monolithically supports all government decisions. It follows from the text of the letter, however, that its authors consider it to be "Nazi collaborators" Ukrainian in the rebel army, which, of course, is somewhat freer than it is envisaged not only by historians but also by politicians and by the interpretation of reality. The congressional's assertion of "state-sponsored Nazi glorification" is the same defamation for Ukraine as the statement about " supported by the state of the Holocaust denial. "The authors of the letter, however, refer to a" State-backed Holocaust denial "as an undeniable fact, and go on to the next topic - the assertion that it" is accompanied by other manifestations of anti-Semitism. "Referring to the report of the Israeli Ministry Congressmen say that the "laundering of Ukrainian" heroes "is accompanied by an increase in anti-Semitic incidents throughout Ukraine." Indeed, in a report issued by the department headed by Minister Naftali Bennet, the statement contained a statement on the twofold increase in the number of anti-Semitic incidents in Ukraine in 2017 compared to the previous year.Unfortunately, congressmen refer to unreliable data.The Ministry of Diaspora Affairs of the State of Israel has not carried out its own monitoring, was based on the preparation of a report on segregated media reports and social networks, and his report could not be seen as a serious source of reliable information. For accurate and complete information on the manifestations of anti-Semitism, we recommend referring to the monitoring materials conducted by the Vaad of Ukraine. Our monitoring did not record such a negative dynamics. Suffice it to say that during 2017 there was no anti-Semitic incident related to violence recorded in Ukraine. At the same time, in many countries of Western Europe and in the USA, the number of attacks on the basis of anti-Semitism is measured by dozens,"- stressed in the organization.

"The results of the monitoring and analysis of anti-Semitic incidents in Ukraine operated by Vaad of Ukraine over the past 15 years are the basis of the relevant reports of the US State Department and the OSCE. In addition to statements that do not correspond to reality, incorrect interpretations and the use of inaccurate information in the letter, somewhat confusing is the fact itself Its appearance now is significant. Discussions about the laws passed in 2015 and their consequences are essential. It should be noted that neither significant changes in this area nor the outbreak of the number of anti-Semitic incidents in Ukraine In the case of Poland, some updating is due to the adoption of an amendment to the law on the Institute of National Remembrance in early February 2018 (also, in general, it has been a long time ago to react only now), "the statement reads.

"In connection with all of the above, the Vaad of Ukraine considers it necessary to declare: - the letter signed by the congressmen contains allegations and false allegations that are not true; - in contrast to what is stated in the letter, in reality there is no state-backed objection Holocaust or the heroism of the Nazis - there is no significant growth in anti-Semitism in Ukraine - almost two years have passed since there was no incident related to anti-Semitic violence in the country at all, and we regard this letter as anti-Ukrainian Defamation, which is already used in the propaganda sector of the Russian hybrid war against Ukraine. We urge all interested in reliable information about anti-Semitism in Ukraine to address it in Vaad Ukraine", - summed up in the organization.

As previously reported, US Congressman Rob Hannah and David Titsillin initiated an appeal to the US State Department, which had signed more than 50 other legislators, to put diplomatic pressure on Ukraine and Poland in connection with the growth of anti-Semitism and the glorification of "Nazi collaborators."

"I personally do not expect anything from Putin. I just expect the death of this person for natural reasons, or that he will be killed during the revolution or the civil war, for example, Nicholas II. I do not need more of it from him... I think that such street protest activity will not stop there, it will continue, it will grow, Putin will be provoked to use force, and, avoiding extreme use of force, it will have to deploy more and more what we call preventive measures, and , in fact, it's repression. Ts I will not be able to argue in any way, but my personal, subjective feeling is that Volodymyr Volodymyrovych will not survive this. the term"," said Cemal.
