Yolkin portrayed Trump's European response to the introduction of new customs with an appropriate caricature

on Sat Jun 23, 2018 12:11 pm
Yolkin portrayed Trump's European response to the introduction of new customs with an appropriate caricature

A well-known Russian artist Sergey Yolkin in the new caricature depicted the European Union's response to the introduction of new US duties on steel and aluminum.

The corresponding picture is posted on the page "DW (Russian)" on Facebook.

"The European Union has indicated where Trump (US President Donald Trump, ed.) Should go with their duties on steel and aluminum," says the signature of the image.

So, the caricature depicts the US president, who comes from European leaders and cries.



It should be noted that in March, Tramp introduced duties on the import of steel and aluminum (25 and 10% respectively) to protect American manufacturers.

At the same time, the United States temporarily, by June 1, released a number of countries, including Mexico, Canada and EU countries, from paying such duties. During this time, all parties had to agree on the new terms of trade, but the negotiations ended without result.

Putin loses support from Russians: there were unexpected data on Putin's rating

The rating of the president of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, has decreased from 62% to 54% and is at the lowest level since 2013.

This is reported by the Foundation "Public Opinion".

It is noted that a sharp decline in the ranking of the head of the Kremlin occurred from 10 to 17 June. In addition, the level of approval of Putin's activity fell from 77% to 72%.

Also, the All-Russian Center for the Study of Public Opinion (VTsIHD) has recorded a decline in the level of approval of the work of the Prime Minister and the Government.

Mikhail Mamonov, head of the practice of political analysis and counseling of the HCTSM, believes that the decrease in the rating of power was influenced by the rise in gasoline prices and the announcement of pension reform. He clarified that the news about this in society was perceived "with caution," wrote RBC.

The Ukrainian general explained the meaning and danger of negotiations between Poroshenko and Putin

on Sat Jun 23, 2018 12:16 pm
The Ukrainian general explained the meaning and danger of negotiations between Poroshenko and Putin

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko talks with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to release Ukrainian political prisoners, however, the dialogue poses a danger of holding "contractors" in favor of the Kremlin.

This was an interview with the "Apostrophe" spokesman for security, Lt. Gen. Vasily Bogdan.

The general noted that in international diplomatic practice it is normal that the heads of the warring countries conduct a dialogue on a number of issues, however, this always happens differently.

Thus, the main theme of Putin's and Poroshenko's talks is the release of political prisoners Oleg Sentsov, Roman Sushchenko, Stanislav Kliha and other Kremlin prisoners.

"If we believe the head of our state - and obviously there are reasons for this, this is precisely the negotiations in the context of when the Putin regime will release these innocent people who are suffering for the interests of our state there," said Bogdan. "Other the question of how Putin puts it, how he uses it to put pressure on Ukraine, so that the Ukrainian side takes action on fundamental issues - both regarding the occupied territories of the Donbas and the Crimea. "

He noted that the Russian leader does not raise the issue of Crimea, either in a dialogue with Poroshenko or with representatives of the United States, which carries the danger that the decision of the problem of illegal occupation of the peninsula can extend for centuries.

"There are discussions about how to call these Ukrainians: prisoners of war, political prisoners or hostages, since this is an unpublished war, hybrid, but for the Ukrainian side everything is clear: the adopted law, Russia is an aggressor, that is, political prisoners, prisoners of war, and they need to be protected. "These holidays, of course, require the Ukrainian side to take appropriate measures," the general said.

"Another question is whether, in the course of these negotiations, there are no" contractors "who can not be in the interests of the Ukrainian side. But given that Ukraine is in the run-up to the presidential and parliamentary elections, I personally exclude that some anti-Ukrainian agreements may be realized during this period", - summed up Bogdan.

"Take yours, give us ours back" - activists picketed Kyiv-based Russian consulate demanding release of Ukrainian political prisoners

VIDEO&PHOTOS
Activists who gathered outside the Russian consulate in Kyiv on June 22 called on Kremlin to swap Ukrainian political prisoners for Russian nationals convicted for Donbas war-related crimes.

As reported by a correspondent for Censor.NET, participants of the rally outside the consular department of the Russian Federation in Kyiv urged the Russian Federation to show some interest in its nationals detained by Ukrainian authorities on charges related to the Russian aggression against Ukraine.



"Ukrainian human rights activists have information about at least 19 Russian citizens who have been detained on charges related to the war. They have been indicted of or already convicted for being members of illegal armed formations, espionage, waging an aggressive war and other articles of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. The Russians do not know their names and do not have much interest in the fate of these people. By holding this rally near the consulate, the activists are trying to draw attention to this sensitive topic and thus bring forward the possible swap and save Oleh Sentsov along with Ukrainian nationals unlawfully held by the Russian Federation for their political views," the rally organizers said.

The rally participants sought to hand in the dummy of vatnik to the representatives of the Russian consulate.

US calls Russia to immediately allow Ukraine’s ombudsman access to Sentsov, Balukh

US calls Russia to immediately allow Ukraine’s ombudsman access to Sentsov, Balukh



The U.S. is appalled that Russia has not allowed Ukraine’s ombudsperson access to Ukrainian activist Oleh Sentsov and Volodymyr Balukh unjustly held by the Kremlin.

As reported by Censor.NET, this was said by Acting Deputy Chief of U.S. Mission to the OSCE Michele Siders as she was delivering speech to the organization's Permanent Council on Thursday, June 21.

"We are appalled that Russia has yet to allow Ukraine’s ombudsperson access to Ukrainian filmmaker and activist Oleh Sentsov, who is languishing in a prison in Russia on fabricated charges of terrorism," she said.

Siders recalled that Sentsov is in his 38th day of a hunger strike, advocating for the release of all Ukrainian political prisoners unjustly held by the Kremlin for opposing Russia’s occupation of Crimea.

"We are also concerned about the condition of activist Volodymyr Balukh, currently on his 95th day of a hunger strike. Russian authorities should immediately allow Ukraine’s ombudsperson access to these prisoners, and release without further delay all those held unjustly," the U.S. diplomat stressed.

As reported, Sentsov is serving a sentence in the maximum security labor camp in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District. This prison's inmates are serving sentences for commission of grave and especially grave crimes.

Sentsov was detained by the Russian FSB Security Service in Russian-occupied Crimea in 2014 together with activist Oleksandr Kolchenko. They were brought to Russia and tried in a trumped-up case on charges of organizing acts of terror and arson on the peninsula. On Aug. 25, 2015, Sentsov and Kolchenko were sentenced to 20 years and 10 years in prison respectively. On Oct. 21, 2016, Russia refused to extradite the two Ukrainians to Ukraine, claiming they had automatically acquired Russian citizenship after the annexation of Crimea.

Sentsov’s sister Natalia Kaplan said March 16, 2018 that her brother reported on his failing health in a letter. He in particular said that he is losing his hair and has his teeth crumbling into small pieces.

On May 14, 2018, the fillmmaker said he went on an indefinite hunger strike demanding to release all Ukrainian political prisoners held in Russia.

Ukrainian activist Volodymyr Balukh was detained by the FSB in Crimea in December 2016.

After 2014, he remained a citizen of Ukraine, having refused to obtain Russian citizenship.

He was accused of committing a crime under part 1, article 222 (illegal possession and carrying of firearms and ammunition) of Russia's Criminal Code.

On Jan 16, 2018, the so-called "Razdolnensky district court of Crimea" sentenced Balukh to 3 years and 7 months in the penal colony settlement and a fine of 10,000 rubles.

Balukh went on a hunger strike on March 19 in protest against his charges which he believes were trumped-up.

Moldovan government has carried out another "anti-Russian demarche" - Dodon condemned the UN resolution on the withdrawal of Russian troops from Transnistria

on Sat Jun 23, 2018 12:38 pm
Moldovan government has carried out another "anti-Russian demarche" - Dodon condemned the UN resolution on the withdrawal of Russian troops from Transnistria



Moldovan President Igor Dodon said that voting in the United Nations on June 22 for the adoption of a resolution by the UN General Assembly on the withdrawal of foreign troops from Transnistria was "anti-Russian demarch".

As Censor.NET reports, he wrote about this on his Facebook page.

"The Moldovan government, controlled by the Democratic Party, launched another anti-Russian demarche, initiating yesterday's vote in the UN, and the ruling coalition is using international platforms to try to strengthen its seriously shaken internal political stance before parliamentary elections that take place in a couple of months. The Democratic Party will not have any practical significance. The Republic of Moldova must strengthen its statehood, pursue a balanced foreign policy, seek international recognition of its neutrality", - he wrote.

"The solution to the Transnistrian problem and the reintegration of the country should be the key to a strong Moldovan state. To complete a peacekeeping operation that takes place in our country in accordance with the treaties of 1992 and is one of the most successful ones will be possible only after both banks of the Dniester reach a comprehensive agreement on the full In the months after the parliamentary elections, a Moldovan parliamentary majority and a government will be formed in Moldova that will conduct a balanced foreign policy based on the nationality will seek renewal of strategic partnerships with Russia and the search for a model for a full and lasting settlement of the conflict, which will arrange both Chisinau and Tiraspol," Dodon said.

On June 22, 2018, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution "On the complete and unconditional withdrawal of foreign military forces from the territory of the Republic of Moldova." For approval of the resolution voted 64 countries, against - 15, abstained 83 delegations.

Recall that known pro-Russian views Igor Dodon was elected president of Moldova in November 2016. During the televised debates, still in the status of the candidate, he said that the Crimea belongs to Russia.

Mostly, the Russian-speaking region of Transnistria in 1992 unilaterally proclaimed "independence" from the rest of Moldova. Transnistria was not recognized by the self-proclaimed "independence" of anyone in the world, although the region has substantial support from Russia - political, economic and military.

After a brief 1992 war, killing about 1200 people, Chisinau finally lost control of the region. Separatists then participated in separate fighters, whole units and units of the Russian army with their weapons and military equipment.

In 1992, a bilateral peacekeeping operation involving Russian and Moldovan troops, as well as armed groups, was launched under a bilateral Russo-Moldovan agreement on the administration of the border between Transnistria and the rest of Moldova.

International negotiations on the settlement of the Transnistria problem take place in the format 5 + 2 (Moldova, Transnistria, Russia, Ukraine and the OSCE plus observers from the USA and the EU).

Russia can unleash a war in Belarus under the same scenario as in Ukraine, Lukashenka



Alexander Lukashenko demanded high-quality work in agriculture and suggested that if the tasks were not fulfilled, then Belarus could enter "a certain state".

He stated this during a working visit to the Shklov district of the country, reports Censor.NET with reference to the ONT channel.

Lukashenko reminded that in some countries, for violating technologies, they were jailed and released. "Listen, we no longer live in Soviet times when we met at the plenum and persuaded each other. If we do not build our relations in this way, we will soon go into the world without trousers," Lukashenka remarked. He stressed that all tasks must be carried out.

"The reason is one failure - death. We are at the front. We can not survive these years, fail, it means, it will be necessary to either be part of any state to go, or we will simply wipe off our feet, or God forbid, will unleash the war as in Ukraine", - said Lukashenka.

These words of Lukashenko are not included in the official report of the trip.
