The US court has refused to close the case against the ex-political technologist Trump Manafort

on Wed May 16, 2018 10:55 am
The US court has refused to close the case against the ex-political technologist Trump Manafort

In the United States, the court refused to close the case filed by US Special Prosecutor Robert Muller against the former head of the election campaign of Donald Trump Paul Manafort.

The decision was made by the judge of the metropolitan area of ​​Columbia, Aimey Berman Jackson on May 15, according to Time.

Manawort's lawyers insisted on closing the case, arguing that it was allegedly not related to an investigation into Russia's interference with the 2016 US presidential election.

The judge agreed with the prosecution party, stating that the case against Manaforth is not unacceptable, despite being not directly related to the election.

Manafort is accused of money laundering, tax evasion and fraud. He is also accused of not registering as a foreign agent, although he was lobbying for US interests in the government of Ukraine during the days of former President Viktor Yanukovych.

Earlier, Tram's former adviser, Rick Gates, has officially found himself guilty of plotting at the federal level and providing false testimony. Gates deliberately lied to the special prosecutor Mueller that ex-adviser to Trump Head Paul Manafort at a meeting with a lobbyist and member of the US Congress in March 2013 did not mention Ukraine. After all, both of them, both Gates and Manafort, collaborated with Yanukovych.

Ex-Polatechnologist Manaforth is threatened with 305 years of imprisonment.

March 1, Manafort said he did not recognize the blame for Russia's interference in the US election.

Recall that on October 30, 2017, Paul Manafort and his business partner, Rick Gates, have been charged with 12 points, including money laundering and secret collusion. Later they were taken under house arrest.

Manafort appealed his house arrest , but the court did not satisfy his appeal. Later he was released from detention.

In total, according to documents, Manafort received more than $ 12 million from the Party of Regions from 2007 to 2009. It was also reported that the United States would investigate the possible involvement of Manafort in corruption schemes in Ukraine.

Germany wants deadlines and exceptions for new US sanctions against Russia

on Wed May 16, 2018 10:58 am
Germany wants deadlines and exceptions for new US sanctions against Russia

Germany is trying to convince the United States to postpone the introduction of new sanctions against some Russian companies and seeks to make exceptions to certain restrictions

This was announced during a visit to Moscow, the German economy minister Peter Altmayer, reports DW.

"It was important for me to speak with representatives of the German economy, many of which are medium-sized and large companies working in Russia, creating jobs, doing good business here. It depends on us how to protect them from the negative impact of new US sanctions against Russia," he said. he.

On this issue, the talks go in two directions, the minister explained.

"Firstly, with the American government, in order to postpone the imposition of sanctions in certain cases and achieve exceptions, and secondly, with the Russian government to make sure that Russia's counter-actions will not complicate the situation for German business," Altmayer said.

According to the minister, the question now is "how to open new opportunities for cooperation: in the field of medium-sized business, which in Russia is much less developed than in Germany in the field of training, in the field of environment and energy, in relation to pilot projects."

"There are a lot of spheres that the sanctions do not touch, so we have to use this chance," Altmayer said. In June, a meeting of strategic working groups of the German Ministry of Economy and Russian partners will take place, he said.

"And at all levels, we will promote these projects. In addition, we discussed with Russian partners the issue of reducing bureaucratic procedures, as well as providing legal guarantees to German businessmen," Altmayer added.

The head of the German Ministry of Economics also took part in the preparation of the meeting of German chancellors Angela Merkel and Russian President Vladimir Putin, to be held on May 18 in Sochi.

Recall that on April 6, the United States imposed new sanctions against 24 Russian businessmen and officials, as well as against financial institutions, public and private companies associated with the Kremlin. Washington is calling on the EU to join these restrictions.

The media have already announced Berlin 's intentions to ask Washington to release German business from anti-Russian sanctions.

"Yet another violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty," - UK condemns opening of bridge from Russia to Crimea



British Minister for Europe Sir Alan Duncan condemned the opening of the bridge from Russia to Crimea, and highlighted the U.K.’s concerns about human rights in Crimea.

"Crimea is part of Ukraine, and its annexation by Russia is a breach of international law," Sir Alan Duncan said in a statement, Censor.NET reports.

"The opening of this bridge represents yet another violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty, and a further example of Russia’s reckless behaviour. We continue to work with partners to oppose the annexation, including by maintaining a robust package of sanctions.

"The U.K. also remains deeply concerned by the human rights situation in Crimea, where we have seen the systematic persecution of minority groups and of those who voice their opposition to Russia’s illegal annexation of the territory. We call again for Russia to release all Ukrainian political prisoners held in Crimea and in Russia, and to allow unrestrained access for international human rights monitoring bodies to the peninsula," the British diplomat stressed.

As reported, President Vladimir Putin of Russia announced the need to build a bridge across the Kerch Strait immediately after the annexation of Crimea in March 2014. Originally, the bridge was expected to be built before 2018 and put into operation in the summer of 2019. Putin attended the official bridge opening ceremony on May 15.

The Kremlin is seriously afraid of the massive offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Donbas: made a loud statement

on Wed May 16, 2018 11:13 am
The Kremlin is seriously afraid of the massive offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Donbas: made a loud statement

Not only in the occupied Donetsk and Lugansk , but also in Moscow seriously believe in the future large-scale offensive of Ukrainian troops in the Donbass.

This was told to the "Apostrophe" People's Deputy Dmytro Timchuk.

According to him, in the recent time there were two key events that made the militants nervous.

"The first is the transformation of the ATO into the OS, which was unequivocally taken up in the Kremlin and these" republics. "It is allegedly preparing Kiev for a powerful solution to the problems of the occupied Donbass. The second is the delivery of lethal weapons to Ukraine, primarily the Javelin PTRK . It was perceived as Kyiv is about to step forward in all directions tomorrow, and Volker's visit is perceived precisely in the context of this general paradigm, that is, the expectation of an offensive by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and here a friend from the United States arrived to solve political issues, for example, what to do next with the Don bass in the context of the military operation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine", - says Timchuk.

The deputy noted that initially in Ukraine they were sure that it was only propaganda methods for infiltrating the atmosphere among the population of the occupied areas, designed to solve the "problems of staffing the 1st" Army Corps DNR "and the 2nd "Army Corps LNR".

"However, from those internal documents, the information about which comes to us, creates the persistent impression that these are not propaganda stamps, such a scenario is believed to be true in Moscow, Donetsk and Luhansk, and at the highest level they are really afraid that the Armed Forces will take offensive tomorrow and will be a bloody massacre throughout the occupied territory", - emphasizes Timchuk.

"Crimea is Ukraine," - US State Department condemns Kerch bridge opening

on Wed May 16, 2018 11:18 am
"Crimea is Ukraine," - US State Department condemns Kerch bridge opening



The U.S. condemns Russia’s construction and partial opening of the Kerch Strait Bridge between Russia and occupied Crimea.

Spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State Heather Nauert tweeted on Tuesday, Censor.NET reports.


The formal stetement by the U.S. Department of State on the opening of the Kerch Bridge in Crimea says: "The United States condemns Russia’s construction and partial opening of the Kerch Strait Bridge between Russia and occupied Crimea, which was done without the permission of the government of Ukraine. Crimea is part of Ukraine. Russia’s construction of the bridge serves as a reminder of Russia’s ongoing willingness to flout international law.

"The bridge represents not only an attempt by Russia to solidify its unlawful seizure and its occupation of Crimea, but also impedes navigation by limiting the size of ships that can transit the Kerch Strait, the only path to reach Ukraine’s territorial waters in the Sea of Azov. We call on Russia not to impede this shipping.

"The United States has sanctioned numerous individuals and entities involved in this project. These and our other Crimea-related sanctions will remain in place until Russia returns control of the peninsula to Ukraine.

"We once again reaffirm our commitment to Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity and recall the international community’s expression of that commitment in UN General Assembly Resolution 68/262."

The restrictions on the OSCE mission in the occupied Donbass cause to think that Russia is hiding something - Volker

on Wed May 16, 2018 11:21 am
The restrictions on the OSCE mission in the occupied Donbass cause to think that Russia is hiding something - Volker



Restrictions for the OSCE mission, which Russian invaders set for uncontrolled Kiev on the territory of the Donbas, force the organization to think that the Russian side has something to conceal.

According to Censor.NET, referring to Ukrinform, such a view was expressed by US special envoy Kurt Walker in an interview with Voice of America .

He recalled that, since February, the OSCE faced increasing difficulties in gaining access to the Ukrainian-Russian international frontier.

"Under their authority, they have the right to be there and they should have the right to move in the occupied territory, which makes it impossible for them to carry out their work," Volker explained.

He also pointed out that, even in the event that occupiers would miss observers, there are many checkpoints on their way.

"This means that there is a message in advance:" Well, go to the OSCE, prepare them not to see anything. "That was the case," said the special representative.

He also reminded that observers were not allowed to spend the night in the occupied territories and they had to return until there was light, so there was not enough effective observation at the border.

"However, even this has changed, and now they can not even get there, and therefore they think that there is something there and Russia simply does not want them to see that they are now doing", - Volker emphasized.

Tymoshenko: No government, President or NBU make independent and clear decisions

Ukraine has been under the negative external control over the last four years. Part of the great transnational financial oligocracy with the assistance of the corrupt Ukrainian leadership is grossly and cynically earning in our country.

As informs Censor.NET with reference to the press service of "Batkivshchyna", said leader of the party Yulia Tymoshenko during the broadcast on the channel "NewsOne".

The politician stressed that the issue of external influences should be divided into a positive aspect - such as the support of the United States, the EU or the IMF, and the desire to benefit from the weakness of the country.

"We have an Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU, we cooperate with the IMF, Ukraine also has strong friends - the United States, the EU and other countries of the world who have supported us against the foreign aggression of Russia. In this case, I would not categorically consider it as elements of any kind external management, because it is about solidarity and a desire to help us pass the difficult path of becoming", - she explained.

At the same time, Tymoshenko warned: "There is a negative external management whose goal is to cynically earn in Ukraine. Everyone feels that neither the government nor the president, nor the NBU - make independent and clear decisions."

According to the leader of the party, "part of the large transnational financial oligocracy" with the assistance of representatives of the current state power use the resources and capabilities of Ukraine and pump out huge money from our economy.

"These formations, like large-fatted sharks, swim in the global space, not related to any country in the world, but have good appetites, and when a weak victim appears in the global space that has a weak and non-intellectual corrupt leadership that is blamed for war and misplaced decisions - it just becomes prey,"- explained the politician.

Destruction of the country, according to the head of the party, takes place through the following global steps:
- the destruction of the banking system;
- murder of the middle class;
- artificial inflation,
- money laundering from the economy;
- introduction of overpriced tariffs;
- creation of conditions for emigration;
- destruction of the health system;
- dismantling the education system.

Yulia Tymoshenko believes that it is impossible to keep the Ukrainian nation ignorant, so we need to know the truth and understand how to confront this destructive external influence for the country.

"Today, a huge campaign is under way so that marionettes who do not know how to manage the country and take it out of the crisis, have come to the highest positions in the state," the politician noted.

Batkivshchyna leader called on people to take a responsible attitude towards the country, "because there is no time for experiments." According to her, the country's destiny will be decided at the next presidential and parliamentary elections.

"As a nation, we must become the only organism and see where the threat is. By mobilizing our intelligence, we will form a strong national team that will have a road map, understand the new course of the country, and will have a course to restore the innovative system of our lives," Tymoshenko assured.

She also called for "so that at least once in the history of Ukraine came to power a strong, independent, professional team, in particular the national Ukrainian technocrats who put the country on their feet."

"Today we are collecting such a team and are ready to publicly announce a new course of the country, which has two components: the first one is a reorganization of the entire political system of life, and the second is a new economic course of the country, which will step by step lead us out of a critical state," summed up. chairman of the party.

"Tymoshenko blamed Naftogaz for corruption because we refused to negotiate with Putin?" - Deputy Head of Naftogaz Vitrenko

on Wed May 16, 2018 11:32 am
"Tymoshenko blamed Naftogaz for corruption because we refused to negotiate with Putin?" - Deputy Head of Naftogaz Vitrenko



The main factor in the profitability of Naftogaz is not a rise in prices, as it wants to show Tymoshenko, and a win against Gazprom in Stockholm.

This was stated by Yuriy Vitrenko, Commercial Director of Naftogaz on his Facebook page, writes Censor. NET.

"Tymoshenko's main claim to us that" Naftogaz "is profitable is, for example," it's a matter of time, "said Yulia Tymoshenko, But for all normal people, on the contrary, the evidence that Naftogaz is not corrupt is that the leadership of "Naftogaz" instead of stealing "from losses" or even "from profits" does so that "Naftogaz "Naftogaz" pays a record amount to the state budget. Because "Naftogaz" with"- a state-owned company. Profits of Naftogaz are the profits of the Ukrainian people," he said.

"The main factor in the profitability of Naftogaz is not a rise in prices, as Tymoshenko wants to show, and a win against Gazprom in Stockholm, so we did not need to win? Instead of going to the Stockholm arbitration, we had to pay $485 For the gas under the contract, which Tymoshenko agreed with Putitim, did we have to negotiate with Putin on our knees, because it was not possible for the country to pay such a crazy price and for the unrealistic volumes of gas that we had to buy under this contract? Agreed with Putin, it would not be corruption and treason oh, but to go against Gazprom in international arbitration and win is megaculture?" - added Vitrenko.

"Another Tymoshenko's claim to Naftogaz concerns the fact that Naftogaz receives revenues from transit and not our Ukrtransgas subsidiary. It is a strange claim, since Tymoshenko personally agreed with Putin on a transit contract for which the contract is" Naftogaz", and it is he who receives revenues from transit, and Ukrtransgaz is defined as responsible only for technical support", - he summed up.

Previously, Tymoshenko called on the Council to set up a temporary investigative commission on corruption at Naftogaz NJSC.

Recall that the Stockholm Arbitration ordered Gazprom to pay NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine $4.63 billion for the short supply of agreed volumes of gas for transit. Thus, according to the results of two arbitration disputes between companies for the supply and transit of gas, Gazprom will pay NAK $2.56 billion.

For its part, Gazprom has confirmed that it will pay Naftogaz of Ukraine $2.56 billion by arbitration in Stockholm.

At the same time, Gazprom refused to start deliveries of gas to Naftogaz Ukrainy in March and repaid the prepayment, insisting on the necessity of signing an additional agreement to a valid contract for 2009-2019.

Ukrtransgaz said that Gazprom has not met the technical requirements since the beginning of the year, supplying gas to the Ukrainian border with a lower than contractual pressure.

Gazprom, after losing in the Stockholm arbitration, filed a lawsuit with Naftogaz, announced the start of a procedure for terminating contracts with the Ukrainian company for the supply and transit of gas.

On March 30, the Russian company appealed against this decision to the County Court of Appeal (Sweden).

However, in reporting with RAS, Gazprom indicated that it had reserved the full amount of a fine under a transit contract with the Ukrainian side in the amount of $4.7 billion.

Former Russian mercenaries from Wagner FC complained about the lack of money and the fraud of their commanders

Former colleague of the head of Russian mercenaries Dmitry "Wagner" Utkin, Eustachius "Engineer" Botvigniew said that the "sums" promised to the relatives of dead mercenaries are often not paid, and their commanders leave a portion of "earned" money for themselves.

He said this in an interview with the publication of "Reeds".

Maria Botvigneva, the wife of "Engineer" and his "combat companion", captain of the reserve of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, also took part in the conversation.

"The salary of about 180 thousand a month was received by an ordinary person in Lugansk. It is necessary to understand that these people there replace our contractors and all the losses can close our eyes, to say that none of our military has suffered." They fought here, indeed, they fought. "Lugansk airport During the assault Debaltsevo also lay a lot of "Wagnerovtsev" - said Botvignev.

However, according to his wife, a mercenary is better to try to stay alive, because in case of death his family will receive little.

"It should be understood that the PKK is the one who will be sent to the battle first, and they are paid for it." In Syria, the salary of the contractor is approximately equal to the salary of the PKK, but the PKK fighter must not only enter the designated point and put as many enemies as possible there, he yet they must remain alive, because all these promises that the families of the victims will pay something will usually end with the death of the soldier. There are no preferences for those who are out of the law, "said Botvigneva, adding that" if the payment and they are, then they come from some public structures, and size they are exactly such that the family of the deceased did not raise her."

"Often," sums of money "are not paid. People disappear, they go to a militia and do not return, hide them in place ... Secondly, you must understand that they pay money to non-soldiers, pay money to the head of the organization, and he already pays And as in anecdotal: fat has kept, and on the fingers left", - has confirmed" the Engineer".
