It is impossible to negotiate: a well-known journalist appreciated the results of Merkel's meeting with Putin

It is impossible to negotiate: a well-known journalist appreciated the results of Merkel's meeting with Putin

Journalist and publicist Vitaly Portnikov believes that the meeting of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Vladimir Putin has proved that the head of the Kremlin is not ready to recognize the loss from the pressure of the West.

He writes about this in his column for Radio Liberty.

Portniks pay attention that the meeting in Sochi on May 18 did not bring any results. Merkel and Putin see the UN peacekeepers in the Donbass region completely differently.

"The meeting in" Norman format "is still said, but it does not name it. Merkel argues that such a meeting should bring concrete results - but so far, such results are not visible," he notes.

Also, Portnikov noted that the meeting did not agree on the issue of transit of Russian gas.

"We did not hear anything about the North Stream 2. Putin argues that transit through Ukraine and after the launch of a new gas pipeline will be preserved - but only if there are economic justifications for this. Merkel calls for Ukraine to maintain an important role in transit and preventing damage to its economy.This is not the same position, it is different positions.And there is nothing strange about it.Today, the Russian president is still not ready to admit that the pressure of the West will have devastating consequences for his country's economy. and saved TION power.

That is why it is possible to go to Putin. And to negotiate with him - you can not", - summarizes Portnikov.

In Russia, they began talking about the exchange of Ukrainian political prisoners for the Kremlin's propagandist



One of the main propagandists of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Dmitry Kiselev, believes that the release of political prisoners, Roman Sushchenko and Oleg Sentsov, can be released for the release of the head of RIA Novosti Ukraine, arrested in Ukraine, by Kirill Vyshynsky.

He spoke on this at a protest action near the Ukrainian Embassy in Moscow, according to RIA Novosti.

"I think that all means are good now, and Kirill should be free." Sušchenko, Sentsov are people who sit for terrorism and subversion, Cyril did not do anything like that; this exchange, of course, will not be equivalent, consciously. But, nevertheless, I think that Kirill should be free,"- said Kiselev.

Note that users of social networks critically perceived Russia's readiness to take action.

"What it was necessary to prove. Russians immediately become compliant when they begin to work with their own methods," wrote the famous Ukrainian journalist Denis Kazansky.

"Kiselyov? And here's from this place there are assumptions about a predetermined scenario of all this", "How important information he owns or they simply need to squeeze for maximum information noise" - they assumed in the network.

Recall that Vyshinsky suspected of committing state betrayal. He was arrested on May 15 in Kiev.

Fear of the Third World War: Russia has reported an alarming news for Putin

on Sat May 19, 2018 11:17 am
Fear of the Third World War: Russia has reported an alarming news for Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin must take into account that most Russians are afraid of the beginning of the Third World War because of Russia's activity in Syria.

About it Russian political scientist Dmitry Oreshkin told in a column on "Apostrophe".

According to statistics, 57% of Russian citizens are seriously worried about the possibility of the start of the Third World War between Russia and the United States through Syria.

"This is a completely mythological look, but it indirectly shows that the Syrian epic is unpopular in the eyes of the Putin's voter." People do not understand what Russia is doing to pursue their interests. "The conflict around the Crimea is closer to the Russians, they believe that it was necessary to select Crimea in Ukraine , because he is "Russian" and so on. That is, the Crimean mythology is deeply rooted,"- said the political scientist.

"Therefore, from any point of view, Putin is not interested in getting involved in the Middle East conflict. Heightened interest - yes, but himself fighting - at least. He has already lost a lot in Syria, and if he continues to disappear somewhere, helicopters and people will accumulate irritation, including among patriotic Putin's electorate, so he will remotely support the tension by throwing firewood there, "added Oreshkin.

More about the absence in Russia of victories in the Donbass, read in the material "Apostrophe" - It begins to annoy: Putin will "forget" about the Donbas.

US warns Germany of sanctions through Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline

US warns Germany of sanctions through Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline

US authorities warned Germany that the country should be prepared for sanctions in the event of the construction of the North Stream 2 gas pipeline.

This was stated in an interview with Bloomberg by Peter Baier, envoy to the German Chancellor's Government Angela Merkel.

According to him, the official spokesman for the administration of the US president told him at a meeting in Washington last week that sanctions through the North Stream 2 were "likely".

It is noted that the construction of the gas pipeline will "signal the escalation of the economic conflict with Europe".

"This is an additional burden for transatlantic relations," Bayer said.

Previously, it was also reported that the United States could apply sanctions against members of the North Stream-2 construction.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel held talks in Sochi and said that after the launch of the North Stream 2 pipeline, gas transit through the territory of Ukraine would continue if it was "economically feasible".

On January 31, 2018, Germany allowed the Nord Stream 2 to be built on its territory, and on March 27 it allowed construction.

Finland also allowed the construction of the North Stream 2 gas pipeline in its economic zones.

Germany began to build a German section of the Russian gas pipeline North Stream 2 despite the lack of permits from all countries whose territory this gas pipeline should pass.

Poroshenko called supporters of the construction of a new Russian gas pipeline "accomplices of the Russian Federation" and said that "North Stream 2" monopolizes the supply of gas to the EU by Russia. Also, the President of Ukraine has agreed with Deputy Secretary of State Mitchell on joint actions to counter the construction of the North Stream-2.

On April 5, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine called on the world not to support the construction of the Russian "North Stream-2".

In Finland, already challenged in the court a permit for the construction of the "North Stream-2". In addition, German environmentalists opposed the construction of the North Stream-2.

Venezuelan leader Maduro is involved in drug trafficking and money laundering in the Russian Federation, the US Treasury Department

Venezuelan leader Maduro is involved in drug trafficking and money laundering in the Russian Federation, the US Treasury Department



The United States has accused Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro and Diosdado Cabelo of receiving revenues from drug trafficking and laundering "dirty" money in Russia.

For the first time, Washington has publicly linked Maduro, which is subject to US sanctions, with drug trafficking, reports Cenzor.NET with reference to Voice of America .

It is noted that Diosdado Cabelo is the second after Maduro, a man in the hierarchy of the governing body of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela.

The US Treasury Department issued a statement stating that Cabello confiscated small drug traffickers from drug dealers, assembled them in a large batch and exported through the state-owned Venezuelan airport.

"Cabello, together with President Maduro and other people, shared the proceeds from the supply of drugs," the statement said.

The money received from drug trafficking was washed off in Costa Rica and Russia.

The US Treasury Department has imposed sanctions against Cabello, his wife and his brother. Apart from participating in drug trafficking, they are also charged with racketeering.

Recall that in November 2017, the United States of America announced the introduction of new sanctions against members of the government in Venezuela and other high-ranking officials who support the policies of the country's president, Nicholas Maduro.

Earlier, in early August, the United States imposed similar sanctions on Maduro himself, and a little later, on several members of the Constitutional Assembly of Venezuela, a body called to rewrite the constitution of the country.

U.S. Deports Russian Man Convicted Of Nuclear Bribery Scheme

Vadim Mikerin, who was sentenced by a U.S. judge to four years in prison in 2015, was deported by federal authorities in Washington on May 18, Russian state news agencies cited a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman as saying later that day.

Mikerin, 59, was an executive with a Maryland-based subsidiary of Tenex, a Rosatom-owned firm that supplies and exports uranium and enrichment services to nuclear power companies worldwide.

The U.S. Justice Department said Mikerin helped facilitate the payment of bribes made to win "improper business advantages" for U.S. firms that worked with Tenex.

Mikerin, who pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit money laundering, was also ordered by the judge to forfeit more than $2 million.

He was released from prison on April 24, according to U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons records. Following his release, Mikerin was taken into custody by U.S. immigration authorities pending his deportation, Russian news agencies reported.

U.S. authorities said in March that the U.S. company Transport Logistics International agreed to pay $2 million to settle charges that it bribed Mikerin to win contracts to ship uranium to the United States...........

German Minister Warns U.S. That Putting 'America First' Will Spur Response In Kind

German Minister Warns U.S. That Putting 'America First' Will Spur Response In Kind

Germany's economy minister has issued a warning to the United States about the risks of putting "America First," saying it will prompt European allies to respond in kind and put their own interests first.

"The U.S. are our friends and partners, and we want to defend our common values," Economy Minister Peter Altmaier said in in an interview with ARD television in Berlin on May 18, but he said Germany will go ahead with its joint Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline deal with Russia despite strong opposition from the United States.

"If it's America first, and they put their economic interest before others, then they have to expect Europe to define their own interests and fight for them," said Altmeier, who, along with his close ally German Chancellor Angela Merkel has described the pipeline deal as essential for Germany's economy.

Altmeier accused Washington of seeking to block the planned gas pipeline from Russia to Germany through the Baltic Sea so that U.S. companies can sell more liquefied natural gas to European markets.

The United States on May 17 threatened to use sanctions to try to block the pipeline deal, while President Donald Trump has called for increased U.S. liquefied gas shipments to Europe, saying it would help Europeans curb their reliance on Russian gas.................

Poroshenko about raising the minimum wage: Set the task to reach 4 thousand UAH by the end of the year. And this is not the limit

Poroshenko about raising the minimum wage: Set the task to reach 4 thousand UAH by the end of the year. And this is not the limit



President Petro Poroshenko claims that the growth of the minimum wage to 4.2 ths. UAH in the second quarter of this year is not a limit.

As informs Censor.NET with reference to UNIAN, the President said about this during a trip to Khmelnytsky.

According to him, the average salary in the country is now approaching 9 thousand UAH.

"Decisive steps must be taken to ensure wage growth. Last year, the decision was made to raise salaries to UAH 3.2 thousand - twice, then to 3.7 thousand. The president set the target to reach 4 thousand before the end of the year. But the difference between the minimum and the average is only 1.8 times unacceptable," he said.

As it was reported, from January 1, 2018, the minimum wage in Ukraine increased to 3,772 UAH from 3,200 UAH. The government intends to consider raising the minimum wage to 4,200 hryvnias already in the second quarter of this year if the necessary economic growth is reached.

On May 16, Prime Minister Volodymyr Groisman said that the average salary in Ukraine currently stands at almost UAH 8,000.
