CNN called Trump the only one whom Putin can count on

CNN called Trump the only one whom Putin can count on

After Donald Trump's statement about Russia's return to the G-8, the CNN channel said that Vladimir Putin is the only global leader who can rely on the US president.

The material points out that in Russia there are many reasons for joy. According to the media, Trump at every turn shows that the United States is an unreliable ally and a country that no longer cares about the rest of the world.

It is also said that one of the sources of US power was the ability to use the power of its allies - the countries with which the United States shared the ideals of democracy, free trade, human rights and elementary respect for the individual. However, Trump seems to be distancing himself from these countries and assisting Putin.

Journalists are confident that such actions by the American leader weaken the United States and strengthen their rivals - Russia and China. And at this time Putin represents himself a more reliable trading partner in Europe, "swimming in the success of Europeans-populists".

He stated this at a press conference on Saturday after his participation in the summit in Canadian Quebec, according to Censor.NET with reference to Ukrinform.

"I think (revival - ed.) Of the G8 would be better, I think Russia's return would be a positive factor. We want peace in the world, we do not want to play games," said the US president.

When asked by journalists when he last communicated with Putin, Trump replied that it was "a long time ago." At the same time, he again stressed that the participation of Russia at the table of negotiations of the great powers would be an advantage.

"I think it would be good for the world, it would be good for Russia, it would be good for the United States, this would be good for all the countries of the present G-7," the US president said.

Responding to the question of the annexation of the RF of the Crimean peninsula, Trump accused of this "omission" of the previous administration. "Crimea was captured during the Obama administration, and Obama can speak whatever he wants, but he allowed Russia to take the Crimea," the current head of the White House said.

US President Donald Trump first announced in Washington on Friday the initiative to resume the G-8 format with the participation of Russia. He was supported by the Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte.

"For unknown reasons, the president demonstrated to our enemies the respect and respect that must be preserved for our immediate allies. To those nations sharing with us some values ​​and sacrifices with us for decades, disrespect is expressed.

The US Congress presents a resolution in which the Holodomor is recognized as a genocide of the Ukrainian people

The US Congress presents a resolution in which the Holodomor is recognized as a genocide of the Ukrainian people



The House of Representatives of the US Congress presented a resolution in which the 1932-1933 Holodomor was recognized as a genocide of the Ukrainian people.

Censor.NET informs about it, referring to the press service of the Ukrainian embassy in the United States.

A group of congressmen from the Democratic and Republican parties led by the Co-Chairmen of the Friendship Group with Ukraine in the House of Representatives of the US Congress, Sander Levin, Marcy Kaptur, Bryan Fitzpatrick and Andy Harris presented a draft resolution dedicated to the 85th anniversary of the 1932-1933 Holodomor in Ukraine.

The document is a mirror version of the resolution introduced by the Senate in March this year. The document states that the events of 1932-1933 in Ukraine were planned by the action of the Stalinist totalitarian regime, which was directed against the Ukrainian people and was a genocide. Thus, in particular, the decree of the document recognizes the conclusions of the US Government Commission on Famine in Ukraine (dated 22 April 1988) that "Stalin and his entourage committed genocide against Ukrainians in 1932-1933."

The draft resolution condemns systematic violations of human rights, in particular the right to self-determination and freedom of speech, committed by the Soviet government against the Ukrainian people. The deepest condolences to victims, survivors of the Holodomor and their families are expressed, and there is a call for the dissemination of information to raise awareness about the artificial nature of this tragedy in the world.

"No, Russia can not be added (in. - Ed.) G7," said Jeff Fleike, commenting on the statement by US President Trump, informs Censor.NET  with reference to Interfax-Ukraine.

For his part, Ben Sass said that Moscow "is leading a shadow war against America, and (American - Ed.) Leadership should act accordingly."

At the same time, Senator John McCain stated that "Russia deserves to be a member of the G8 through interference in Ukraine and the accession of the Crimea."

Members of the Democratic Party also spoke out against the president's proposal.

In particular, Chuck Summer, leader of the Democratic minority in the Senate, said that "President Trump transforms US foreign policy into an international joke and causes the country an unreasonable long-term harm".

Resolution condemning Russian transgressions against international law and FIFA values during 2018 World Cup tabled to US Congress

on Sat Jun 09, 2018 3:07 pm
Resolution condemning Russian transgressions against international law and FIFA values during 2018 World Cup tabled to US Congress



Members of U.S. Congress Marcy Kaptur and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen call to join them in cosponsoring the bipartisan resolution, which would call out Russia’s malign behavior, and call on FIFA to publicly justify holding the World Cup in a country internationally sanctioned for its military aggression.

"As you may know, Russia will host the 2018 World Cup this June 14 to July 15, 2018. The games have an expected global viewership of 3.2 billion granting Russia significant prestige on the world stage. Meanwhile, FIFA set aside $627 million for local organization in the country and the windfall Russia will garner from global tourism will lead to a significant boost for their economy currently saddled with global sanctions," the congresswomen said in a statement, Censor.NET reports.

"Tragically, this status trivializes Russia’s aggressive, expansionist foreign policy. Russia seeks to weaken democratic institutions globally through disinformation, election meddling, and other measures. It illegally invaded and has occupied Ukrainian territories of Crimea and the Donbas since 2014, resulting in the death of over 10,000 people and the displacement of 1.6 million to date. Russia works to sow discord among America’s closest allies in NATO and the European Union. In the Middle East, their support of the Assad regime in Syria has led to the death of thousands and further displacement of millions.

"A dark cloud hangs over these games as allegations have been raised into corruption associated with the FIFA and the selection of Russia for the World Cup. Just this past winter, Russia was expelled from the South Korean Olympics due to unprecedented levels of state-backed doping.

"Russia’s actions not only fly in the face of international norms, but they also go against FIFA’s statutes, which state that "discrimination of any kind against a country… is strictly prohibited and punishable by suspension or expulsion." It is clear that the International Community must continue to hold Russia to account, and should not reward its malign behavior with the right to host the World Cup. We must hold FIFA to a higher standard in future bidding processes to ensure fairness and transparency," the statement reads.

Washington-based Ukraine's Embassy later confirmed that this bipartisan resolution condemns Russia’s continued destabilizing behavior in Ukraine and the region; calls on the Fe´de´ration Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) and its associated 6 international community to continue investigations into illicit Russian efforts to secure the World Cup; and provide a public, detailed explanation of why FIFA continues to plan to hold the World Cup in Russia given its continued status as an internationally sanctioned country due to its ongoing aggression against Ukraine, including its illegal occupation of Crimea.

We can not go to Trump: sister Sentsov made a frank confession

Ukraine needs third-party support in the issue of releasing political prisoners , but there are difficulties with this.

This was stated by the cousin of the Ukrainian political prisoner, director Oleg Sentsov Natalia Kaplan, in an interview with "Apostrophe".

According to her, the pressure of the world community in the context of the World Football Championship, which will take place in Russia, can help in the liberation of political prisoners. Kaplan is sure that this issue is very important personally for President Vladimir Putin.

Also, the reaction of the president of the United States can play an important role in this matter.

"The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry is doing a lot, it went to Germany via the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, and activists first came to France, and then joined the Foreign Ministry." As far as the USA is concerned, it would be much more complicated. "If I knew personally how to get to Trump, believe me, we would have already done it." Until we can find a way out of this situation, "Kaplan said.

"While you’ll be watching football matches, Russia will continue killing Ukrainians in Donbas," - 128th Brigade commander appeals to football fans ahead of FIFA World Cup 2018

Colonel Serhii Sobko, the commander of the 128-th Mountain Assault Brigade of the Ukrainian army, called the football fans not to trust Russia and its attempts to sell itself as a civilized country by holding FIFA World Cup 2018 as it keeps waging war against Ukraine in the Donbas while many Ukrainian political prisoners are being held in Russian jails.

"This is going to be a police operation," – Minister Avakov believes Ukraine to return Donbas soon



Interior Minister Arsen Avakov predicts the Donbas to be soon liberated in a police operation involving no military.

He said at a round table held in Kyiv, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrainski Novyny.

"We hope and there is good chance that Putin will back off due to the international pressure in the near future. And we will reclaim our occupied territories... Most likely, this will be a police operation with no Armed Forces involved," he said.

The minister is confident that such an operation will not require 40,000-strong UN peacekeeping force but will only take 2,000 law enforcers.

Avakov noted that the liberation of the Donbas must be gradual and be carried out consistently through exercising Ukrainian authority and holding elections in every liberated village or city.

According to the law enforcer, surveys indicate that about 60 percent of the Donbas residents are willing to return to peaceful life as part of Ukraine, another 20 percent want to join Russia, and the remaining 20 percent are scared of a possible offensive launched by the Ukrainian troops.

Ukraine lost $100 billion through Russian aggression in the Crimea and the Donbas, - Atlantic Council

on Sat Jun 09, 2018 4:44 pm
Ukraine lost $100 billion through Russian aggression in the Crimea and the Donbas, - Atlantic Council



Because of hostilities in eastern Ukraine, most of the infrastructure was destroyed. After the Crimean occupation, Ukraine lost 1.4 million hectares of land. In addition, Ukrainian banks lost assets remaining in bank branches. Russia chose "Krimenergo".

"Ukraine has lost 100 billion dollars due to Russian aggression in the Crimea and in the east, Crimea has been annexed by the Russian Federation, Russia is fully responsible for this part of the territory of Ukraine," said Anders Aslund, author of the study "The Price of the Kremlin Aggression in Ukraine: Material Dimension", a senior researcher at Eurasia Center Atlantic Council, informs Censor.NET, during a presentation of the study at the Ukrainian Crisis Media Center.

After the Crimea occupation, Ukraine lost 1.4 million hectares of land, estimated at more than $ 1.8 billion. In addition, Ukrainian banks lost assets remaining in bank branches - from $1.7 to $1.9 billion dollars. Russia chose Krimenergo, as a result, Ukraine lost $1 billion.



The Eurasia Center Atlantic Council reports that the simplest and most generalized definition of losses suffered by Ukraine is the multiplication of the share of lost GDP for four years from the beginning of occupation.

"Donbas was the source of 10% of Ukraine's GDP, and Crimea - 3.7%. The International Monetary Fund estimated the GDP of Ukraine in pre-crisis 2013 at $179.6 billion, thus, the total value of assets of Crimea and Donbass amounted to 13.7% of this sum is multiplied by four, which is equal to $98.4 billion dollars, "explained Aslund.

The report also contains lists of companies captured by pro-Russian terrorists in the Donbas and Russia in the Crimea.

"We are not talking about selling Crimea. Crimea remains part of the territory of Ukraine for us." We are talking about the protection of investors who illegally lost their rights in the Crimea. For us, it's clear: the right to own property belongs to Ukraine and Russia just usurped our right to regulate it This is our stubborn position, "said Olena Zerkal, Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine on European Integration.

Because of hostilities in eastern Ukraine, a large part of the infrastructure has been destroyed. Experts estimate a loss of $9.5 billion. "Who is responsible for this?" DPR "and" LNR "are not recognized in the world. They captured this territory without any legal documents," said Anders Aslund.

The Russian Federation also has significant economic losses. In particular, Russia spends about $2 billion annually in support of the Crimea. The military expenditures of the Russian Federation have increased in recent years to 5.3% of GDP. As a result of a decrease in the share of trade with Russia, Ukraine has lost another $14 billion.

Ukrainian companies and individuals who have lost their assets as a result of Russian aggression must file lawsuits against international courts. Such a thesis was expressed by Alan Riley, Senior Researcher at Eurasia Center Atlantic Council. It is also worthwhile to group together and file joint suits to reduce the cost of litigation. "We can encourage and encourage individuals and legal entities to demand compensation from the Kremlin," said John E. Herbst, director of the Eurasia Center, Atlantic Council.

"Ukrainians have several ways to get compensation for damage, one way is the bilateral agreement on investment between Ukraine and Russia, signed in 1998. The agreement stipulates that each party will encourage investors from the other side to invest in their territory and will allow such investments, respecting the legislation of the other party, "said Yevhen Czolij, president of the World Congress of Ukrainians.

It is also important to motivate investors to return after the territory is released from occupation. Such a thesis was expressed by Yulia Klymenko, vice-president of the Department of Business Education of the Kyiv School of Economics. "The motivation will gradually decrease, this issue should be part of a public debate, indirect losses will be much higher than direct losses in the occupied territories, and we must be ready to calculate all the losses," summed up Yulia Klymenko.

In Russia, a journalist who complained about her daughter's forced coercion to sing about Putin: photo and video

In Russia, a journalist who complained about her daughter's forced coercion to sing about Putin: photo and video



In Russia, journalist Alexander Terikov published and critically commented on a video from a kindergarten, where her daughter was forced to sing about "the last fight" and "Uncle Vova we are with you": the next day she was released.

This was reported by the journalist himself on his page in Instagram.

In the kindergarten in Nizhnevartovsk, which was in the Tyumen region, the children sang the song "Uncle Vova we and you". Terikova, who is the mother of one of the girls who sang a song, has published a video of the performance with a commentary: "For some reason, I do not want the commander to call my daughter in the last fight."

"I would not send my child and myself would not go in the last fight either for" Uncle Wow "or for any other uncle in power. The words of the song can be interpreted both as a call to suicide and as Putin's identification with his homeland that in general, it contradicts at least the nominal democracy in our country, "Mother said to Sibir.Realii.



Later she gave an interview to Radio Liberty and the "Rain" television channel. A couple of hours, the owner of the local channel N1, where Terimova worked, Rinat Karimov, called her and ordered her to be released in a rude manner. The next day the editor asked to write a letter of release on his own.

"I wrote it because I understood that it makes no sense to go to the conflict and wait for them to be fired by the article," the woman said.

"I ask you to release me for being too active in civic stance and for political differences with the editors of the TV channel," - said in her statement.

Under the scan, she also left a comment: "Suddenly she became the first journalist in Nizhny Novgorod, released for dissent and appeared on the air @tvrain_inside."

Parubiy will visit Washington in late June to discuss the issue of preventing the North Stream 2 project from being implemented



Verkhovna Rada Speaker Andriy Parubiy will visit Washington, where he will discuss issues of preventing North Stream 2 from working with his colleagues from the United States, Georgia, Lithuania and Moldova.

"At the end of this month... I will be in Washington, we will have a meeting with Speaker Ryan (Speaker of the House of Representatives of the USA Paul Davis Ryan - Ed.), With speakers of Georgia, Moldova, Lithuania, I hope, Poland. One of the topics of our discussion will be the issue of preventing the North Stream 2 project from being implemented, - said A.Parubiy during the Second Inter-parliamentary Conference "Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine: Strengthening of the Inter-parliamentary Component of Regional and Security Cooperation and Development of Cooperation with the EU and NATO" in Saturday in Kiev, inform muye Cenzor.NET with reference to Interfax-Ukraine.

He said that his partners in Washington also intend to raise the issue of establishing a regional center that would respond and develop the concept in response to the challenges and threats faced by Ukraine and other countries in the region.

"Construction of the North Stream-2" is not an economic project, it is an exclusively political aggressive project of Russia, "Parubiya quotes Ukrinform, specifying that the BP speaker's meeting with the speaker of the House of Representatives of the US Congress is scheduled for June 27th.

Recall that the North Stream 2 project involves the construction and operation of two strands of a gas pipeline with a total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters of gas a year from the coast of Russia across the Baltic Sea to Germany. The head of "Gazprom" said that after the construction of the "North Stream-2" and "Turkish Stream" gas transit through Ukraine will be reduced by ten times. Naftogaz's head Andrei Kobolev said that Ukraine's losses in case if Russia ceases gas transit will amount to $ 3.5 billion a year.

Germany was the first country to provide Nord Stream 2 AG with a complete set of building permits. Finland, after Germany, issued a complete package of permits for the construction of the North Stream-2. On June 7, Sweden approved the construction of the North Stream 2 pipeline. Currently, procedures for obtaining permits in other countries are continuing along the route of the gas pipeline - Russia and Denmark.
