This is unacceptable - Lithuanian and Canadian delegates to NATO PA opposed Hungary's blocking of Alliance cooperation with Ukraine

This is unacceptable - Lithuanian and Canadian delegates to NATO PA opposed Hungary's blocking of Alliance cooperation with Ukraine



Hungary should not block the cooperation between Ukraine and NATO. Budapest must otherwise solve its problems with Kiev, and Hungary's current actions in this direction are "inadmissible".

This was stated by delegates from Lithuania and Canada during a Saturday meeting of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly in Warsaw, informs Censor. NET, referring to Ukrinform.

"One country in the Visegrad Group is trying to use NATO as a tool to block the NATO-Ukraine meeting, which is unacceptable, and therefore ask our Hungarian colleagues to help the Hungarian government not use NATO as a tool for resolving problems between Ukraine and Hungary" , - said the delegate from Lithuania.

A Canadian delegate stated that he attended a school of minorities in Ukraine, and respected the right to use their native languages. He stressed that there is nothing surprising that domestic legislation is being revised to promote the mother tongue, as it is done in all countries.

"One country's blockade of Ukraine's Euro-Atlantic integration process looks very problematic and surprising from a political point of view," said NATO's delegate from Canada.

In response to allegations, the representative from Hungary noted that Budapest "has always demonstrated solidarity with Ukraine and NATO."

"Hungary has always been solidarized with Ukraine and will support the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, and condemns the illegal annexation of Crimea by Russia," the deputy of the Hungarian parliament stressed.

He also noted that the new law on education, the Ukrainian authorities "instead of rapprochement with the West builds a nationalistic country". The deputy stressed that this law raises many problems for the Hungarian minority in Transcarpathia, therefore, Hungary wants to rely on solidarity on this issue from the Alliance.

The head of the Polish Foreign Ministry, Jacek Chaputovych, expressed hope that all doubts will be dispelled, which will enable the meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Commission. He noted that he spoke on this subject a few days ago with his Hungarian counterpart Peter Siairto, and next Tuesday, May 29, he will talk about it with the head of Ukrainian diplomacy, Pavel Klimkin.

"I think this is a family dispute, it is necessary to study the problem and propose a solution that dispels any doubts. It might be useful to involve a third party, which will help, for example, the NATO Secretary General, and I think he has some tools to to solve this problem", - stated Chutupovich.

As the publication notes, Hungary for the third time blocked the holding of the Ukraine-NATO Commission at the level of ministers through claims to the language article of the Ukrainian law on education.

Obama knew about Russia's involvement in the MH17 disaster in the Donbas media revealed resonance data

on Sun May 27, 2018 1:35 pm
Obama knew about Russia's involvement in the MH17 disaster in the Donbas media revealed resonance data

US intelligence provided evidence of Russia's guilt and the involvement of the 53rd Army Airborne Forces missile crew in the knockdown of the Malaysian Boeing MH17 by then-President Barack Obama a few days after the disaster, but decided not to disclose that evidence in the White House.

Analyst John Schoenler says in his column for the Observer publication.

According to him, information about the role of the Russian armed forces in the knockdown of the Malaysian Boeing was known to the White House immediately after Ukraine released the audio-exploration data (SIGINT).

"As three intelligence officers confirmed to me, Washington had information about the downfall, including SIGINT, which had no doubt that the Russian military, including the 53rd Air Defense Missile Brigade, destroyed the liner. However, the Obama administration decided hiding this news, allowing the dishonest Kremlin congressors to find support, as the public tried to figure out what exactly happened to the doomed plane, "the author says.

He also cited an example in 1983, when the Soviet Union fighter jet shot down a Korean airliner. Then 269 people died, and Moscow did not openly admit its guilt. Then, US President Ronald Reagan delivered a speech in which he accused the USSR, and then during the session of the UN Security Council, the United States provided the audio intelligence that forced the Soviet Union to confess to the crime.

According to the author, President Obama could do the same in 2014, but refused. Progress in this investigation has long been over, and only now, but it could have been in 2014 thanks to the United States.

"This is just another example of the Obama administration's reluctance to go into conflict with Putin and his regime while heightened his crimes and misconduct. By refusing to oppose Russian aggression, President Obama encouraged her - the culmination was the direct intervention of the Kremlin in our 2016 election, with fatal consequences , with which we live today", - said the analyst.

Earlier, the "Apostrophe" published a photo of Russian troops involved in the collapse of the Malaysian Airlines Boeing MH17 in the sky over the Donbas in 2014, killing 298 people.

"On May 11, 2014, the Ukrainian film director and activist Oleg Sentsov and activist Oleksandr Kolchenko were arrested in Russia annexed to the Crimea for public criticism of Russia's invasion of Ukraine on the peninsula. Oleg Sentsov was sentenced to 20 years in an indicative political process based on testimonies extracted from torture, and Aleksandr Kolchenko - up to 10 years imprisonment. "The case of Crimean terrorists" was the first criminal case against the citizens of Ukraine, which was handed Russian law enforcement authorities after the annexation of the Crimea and the beginning In the last four months, Sentsov's health has deteriorated significantly, and the Ukrainian consul is not allowed to see him, independent doctors were denied the right to provide prisoners with proper medical care. In 2018, Oleg Sentsov began an endless hunger strike demanding the release of all Ukrainian political prisoners... Given the seriousness of the situation, we can not close her eyes.

15 Russian artillerys were destroyed by Syrian rebels

on Sun May 27, 2018 1:49 pm
15 Russian artillerys were destroyed by Syrian rebels



Syrian freedom fighters attacked a battery from which Russian troops carry out terrorist attacks on towns and villages.

As informs Censor.NET with reference to "Gazeta.ru", the information about the death of two military said the Ministry of Defense of.

"Two Russian military advisers who managed the fire of a Syrian battery died on the ground. Five more Russian troops were injured, they were delivered to the Russian military hospital promptly, and two of them could not be saved," the Russian Ministry of Defense said.

Also Russian blogger-"raschist" from St. Petersburg, propagandist Anatoly Nesmian, is more famous under his nickname in el_murid (El-Mured).

He cites the publication of the Chita resource Chita.Ru, which refers to the funeral of four Russian soldiers. He then writes:

"The death of artillerymen from the 200th artillery brigade occurred on May 23, it reported on its release on May 25, it reported the death of 15 people, that is, somewhere in the burial ground and other dead.

Attention is drawn to the fact that military personnel are not from the MTS (whose losses are to be classified), but artillery workers. By the way, and here is the question: Putin has lied that Russia will not conduct ground operations in Syria, only special? But artillery is not a very special operation, it's a full-fledged land part.

And again it is noted that such massive losses occurred in a collision with the IDIL, which, as it was solemnly declared, was defeated. On this occasion, even the withdrawal of troops was announced, as the Minister of Defense just solemnly reported."

At the NATO PA in Warsaw, Putin's Russia was recognized as a world-class threat

on Sun May 27, 2018 1:55 pm
At the NATO PA in Warsaw, Putin's Russia was recognized as a world-class threat



The North Atlantic Alliance regards Russia as a global threat.

As informs Censor.NET, this was written on the Facebook page by the People's Front deputy Andriy Levus, who participates in the NATO Parliamentary Assembly (PA) in Warsaw.

"If in previous years NATO PAs viewed Russia's aggression against Ukraine as a local issue, the fact that Putin's Russia was recognized as a world-class threat at the forum in Warsaw. The hybrid nature of Russian aggression calls into question the effectiveness of the use of the fifth article of the Washington Treaty, according to which Allies are obliged to act in solidarity with the aggressor in the event of a direct threat to any NATO member state," he wrote.

The People's Deputy noted that Russia needed 45 minutes to participate in the Syrian war, which had passed since the presentation of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the decision of the State Duma.

"The NATO procedures are too long and bureaucratic, and a discussion has now begun on the improvement of Article 5. For example, the Poles and British are seriously discussing paragraph 5b, which would allow them to react quickly to hybrid threats. In addition, the formation of an informal bloc of the United States, Great Britain and the countries of the Baltic-Black Sea axis", - said Levus.

In his opinion, the main characteristic of this process is a realistic understanding of Russia as a threat to the entire free world.

"It is these countries that are the main lobbyists for joining NATO Ukraine. No doubt, Ukraine needs to take this into account and form its security and geopolitical agenda, focusing on these trends, and also fulfill the domestic task of reforming the national security system, and the law on national security is The first step in this direction is because NATO's recommendations under this law are intended to synchronize our system with the NATO standards, and without this, no membership of Ukraine in the Alliance can be held, "wrote Levus.

Russia fully holds "LNR / DNR" and is directly responsible for the conflict in the Donbas - Volker

on Sun May 27, 2018 2:01 pm
Russia fully holds "LNR / DNR" and is directly responsible for the conflict in the Donbas - Volker



In Donbas, the conflict has recently become an active phase - the "hot war". Responsibility for this lies in Russia, as well as the keys to the end of the conflict with her.

According to Censor.NET, referring to "Crimea. Realia", the special representative of the US State Department for Ukraine, Kurt Volker, told international journalists while in London.

"This is still a very hot war." Last week, there was actually a record for the number of violations of the cease-fire, according to the OSCE estimates, seven thousand a week. "This is a fairly significant amount," Volker said.

He complained that the conflict in the Donbas "often disappears from the first column of newspapers," but he must be resolved urgently.

"There is no woman's ambiguity: the forces (who oppose Ukraine - Ed.) Are under the direct command and control of Russia, and the two political entities (" DNR "and" LNR "- Ed.) Are fully retained by the Russian Federation since they were formed, including funding, so Russia is directly responsible for this conflict, "Volker said during a briefing that lasted half an hour.

He pointed to the deterioration of the humanitarian situation in the Donbas, in particular the destruction of infrastructure: electricity, water, heat supply, communications, roads, problems of people's movement... According to him, a special concern is the outbreak of tuberculosis - with its dangerous strain - under conditions, when it is difficult to deliver antibiotics.

In addition, according to the special representative, the industry is destroyed, some mines are flooded with water, and some mines are used to dispose of radioactive waste. "This (radioactive contamination - Ed.) Can get into groundwater and provoke an ecological disaster, there are also physical hazards for the population, and we often hear about subversion of people in mines ... Well, and people are shooting. This is a very active conflict, hot war", - he added.

The Special Envoy drew attention to the fact that the Russian-speaking population lives on the territory covered by the conflict, and Russia, which allegedly cares for Russian-speakers, must understand what affects them with their actions - or inaction - in terms of resolving the conflict.

Broke Volker and the issue of providing Ukraine with American lethal weapons, in particular Javelin anti-tank missile systems, the first test of which Ukrainian soldiers held this week.

One European journalist asked about alleged divergences in this matter between the US and the EU.

"You know, I have had many consultations all over Europe, in particular with France and Germany as leaders of the" Norman format", with five permanent members of the UN Security Council, including Britain, non-permanent members of the Security Council, the EU, and NATO. I did not feel any significant opposition to helping Ukraine improve its self-defense capability, "Volker said.

He gave an example: Great Britain, Canada, Poland, Lithuania - EU members, and they found the opportunity to deliver lethal weapons to Ukraine.

"You must remember that Ukraine is a state that has a conflict in its own territory. Imagine for a moment that in your country your soldiers protect their territory within your own country, and kill several soldiers of your army every week. in your territory, when they protect their territory from a foreign aggressor, no country would have tolerated such a situation, therefore it is logical for Ukraine to protect itself and others to help it, "added the special envoy.

Today Christians of the Eastern and Western rites celebrate the Trinity

on Sun May 27, 2018 2:05 pm
Today Christians of the Eastern and Western rites celebrate the Trinity



On Sunday, May 27, Christians celebrate one of the major holidays - the Day of the Holy Trinity.

In the Orthodox tradition, the feast is celebrated on the 50th day after Easter, so it is also called Pentecost. Christians of the western rite celebrate the Trinity a week after Pentecost, but this year both the Orthodox and Catholics celebrate the feast one day - May 27, informs Censor.NET.

His first name was celebrated in honor of the ascension of the Holy Spirit to the apostles, which Jesus Christ promised before his ascension to heaven. The Trinity (long since called Greenery holidays) after Easter and Christmas is considered one of the greatest holidays.

As the book "The Acts of the Holy Apostles" tells us, after the ascension of Jesus Christ, the tenth day came: it was the fiftieth day after the Resurrection of Christ. The Jews then had a great holiday in Pentecost in the memory of the Sinai legislation. All the apostles, together with the Mother of God, other disciples of Christ and believers, were in the same house in Jerusalem. Then they were apparently revealed as the third person of the Holy Trinity: the noise from the sky, the wind, the flames of zits, writes zn.ua.

In the gospel tradition, the ascension of the Holy Spirit is described as a flame whose tongues surrounded each of the apostles, after which they received the "gift of languages" - they began to speak in different languages ​​unknown to them earlier. That is why the Holy Trinity Day is also called the birthday of the Christian Church. According to the Orthodox doctrine, the Holy Spirit sanctifies the Church and unites believers, giving them the opportunity to join God. The gift of the Holy Spirit received by the apostles on the day of Pentecost is received by all believers through the sacraments of baptism and anointing.

On this day, the believers adorn the dwelling with fresh shoots of birch, fennel, pepper, mint, thyme, wormwood. Therefore, the Trinity is called by the people as a "green" holiday.

Also, the Trinity usually conducts cleansing rites - from cleaning up the house to purge from sinful thoughts.

Monday, which came after the Holy Trinity, is dedicated to the third incarnation of the Holy Trinity - the Holy Spirit. It's called the Spirits Day.
