At the presidential elections in Ukraine will try to influence not only Russia, but the US and EU countries.

on Sun Jul 08, 2018 3:31 pm
At the presidential elections in Ukraine will try to influence not only Russia, but the US and EU countries.

This was stated in an interview with "Apostrophe" by political commentator Andriy Buzarov.

"There will be presidential elections in Ukraine in Ukraine in March - this can not be ignored in America and Russia. I often ask the question: will Russia somehow influence the presidential election in Ukraine, will it try to influence the situation in Ukraine? Of course it will be. But not only will Russia influence the situation in Ukraine, there are other countries that will influence the presidential candidates, "he said.

According to Buzarov, Ukraine is in no hurry to make any conclusions about the consequences of the meeting between US President Donald Trump and Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

"I think that the United States and the EU are actually interested in ensuring that these elections are as unobstructed as possible, in accordance with all the requirements of the current legislation of Ukraine and international standards. If they are violated, if one of the candidates wins the elections illegally, then our Western partners can these elections are not recognized.In this context, the future meeting of Trump and Putin is very important so that these countries do not allow the destabilization of the situation as much as possible.There are different opinions about this meeting in the Ukrainian political environment. Tiki, in general, remain silent and for some reason do not comment, for example, the Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Andriy Parubiy said that the United States will not change its position in Ukraine, and I also adhere to this position. Most likely, the Americans will not fundamentally change, regardless of the statements of Trump, that he is ready to negotiate with Putin, returning Russia to the "big eight", I think it's more of a bluff. Olena Zerkal, Deputy Foreign Minister, says that there will be a breakthrough in the exchange of political prisoners. I do not think that Trump and Putin will be discussing this topic. Volodymyr Boyko, the leader of the "Opposition Bloc", says that this meeting is not entirely positive, because there is no Ukraine, and many issues can be solved behind the scenes without taking into account Ukraine's opinion. Thoughts are different,"- said the political observer. that this meeting is not quite positive, because there is no Ukraine, and many issues can be solved behind the scenes without taking into account Ukraine's opinion. Thoughts are different,"- said the political observer. that this meeting is not quite positive, because there is no Ukraine, and many issues can be solved behind the scenes without taking into account Ukraine's opinion. Thoughts are different,"- said the political observer.

American media hastened with the story of the possibility of recognizing the annexation of the Crimea, Volker

American media hastened with the story of the possibility of recognizing the annexation of the Crimea, Volker



Kurt Volker, Special Representative of the United States Department of State for Ukraine, stresses that the US does not plan to recognize the annexation of the Crimea by Russia.

As the Cenzor.NET referring to Ukrinform , he stated this in an interview with the German television channel OstWest.

"I think the US media hastened with the story of the possibility of recognizing the annexation of the Crimea. The White House spoke out in the near future - US Secretary of State for National Security advisor John Bolton and White House spokeswoman Sarah Hakaba Sanders clarified that the US does not plan to recognize the Russian annexation Crimea, and so should understand the American position, "said Volker.

He added that the administration of the President of the United States demonstrated a consistent approach to support the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

Answering the question of whether Ukraine is losing Western support, in particular due to corruption and ultra-right movements, Volker noted that Ukraine has made significant progress in implementing reforms over the past three years.

"Ukraine still has significant corruption problems, as well as a significant place for reforms that have not yet been implemented but must be implemented," he added.

At the same time, the US special representative believes that ultra-right movements do not affect state policy.

"Fortunately, this is just a small minority that has no influence on state policy and does not affect the direction in which Ukraine is developing. So this is not the subject of my concern, but it is important that Ukrainian leaders themselves also condemn it," he said. Volker

Note that when US President Donald Trump asked June 29 whether the United States recognized the Crimea as part of Russia, he replied: "We will see."

Volker made an important statement on the recognition of the United States annexation of the Crimea

Special Representative of the State Department for Ukraine Kurt Volker stated that the United States is not going to recognize the annexation of the Crimea by Russia .

He said this in an interview with the German television channel Ost West.

"I think the US media hastened with the story of the possibility of recognizing the annexation of the Crimea. The White House spoke out in the near future - US Secretary of State for National Security advisor John Bolton and White House spokeswoman Sarah Hakaba Sanders clarified that the US does not plan to recognize the Russian annexation Crimea. So one should understand the American position", - he is sure.

Volker also stressed that the administration of the President of the United States, Donald Trump, had previously demonstrated a consistent approach in support of Ukraine on its territorial integrity.

"Speaking about Ukraine more broadly, I think that Ukraine knows that the United States was very supportive of it in the matter of restoring sovereignty of the country, its territorial integrity and peace, especially in the regions of eastern Ukraine, where fighting continues, and I think that the administration (and one and a half year was the Trump administration) has demonstrated a consistent approach in this matter, "added the Special Representative.

There is an implicit ban: Ukraine has been talking about problems with the purchase of weapons

on Sun Jul 08, 2018 3:41 pm
There is an implicit ban: Ukraine has been talking about problems with the purchase of weapons

Ukraine should learn to defend its national interests in the procurement of defense technology abroad.

This was stated in an interview with "Apostrophe" by the head of the Center for the Study of Army, Conversion and Disarmament, a military expert Valentin Badrak.

According to him, Ukraine should work on deterrence weapons, the basis of which are cruise missiles, whose production was taken under control by the head of the National Security and Defense Council, Alexander Turchinov.

"If we are talking about containment weapons - these are missiles, why missiles, because rockets are a completely independent production. We do not have foreign components in the production of an operational tactical missile system and cruise missiles - that's good. We can be independent," - said the expert.

At the same time, Badrak believes that it is necessary also with the help of Western partners to fill gaps in the defense industry, buying or receiving in the form of assistance to the technology that Ukraine does not produce. However, it is also important to remember the domestic manufacturer.

" Purchases of foreign technology and technology should only be carried out strictly in accordance with certain rules when there is no national producer. And if we have a national manufacturer, this should not be the case.This may be different to the Motor Sich, but it is 30 thousand people In Zaporozhye, Antonov, 10 thousand people, in Kharkov, I think about 3 thousand aircraft-builders, and another about 15 plants associated with aircraft and helicopter construction. The Cherkassy "Photopilot" makes optoelectronic guidance systems for helicopters. A huge number of head If, to summarize, it is about 50 thousand people who are deprived of orders only because there is such a decision of a certain group of people - to prolong some kind of thing without thinking about what this would do to damage national machine-building"- says Badrak about purchasing for the Ministry of Internal Affairs of French helicopters for half a billion euros.

In addition, there is another problem, which is that some technologies in Ukraine simply refuse to supply.

"The situation is multifaceted. For example, factors such as the implicit embargo on the sale of some weapons systems or technology supply to Ukraine are influenced by it. Why did France go to the police project with joy? Because this is not a military project. It is very easy for them to sell bee-type police helicopters to Ukraine for a great deal of money. This is a classic of the genre. And Ukraine instead of these helicopters and together the Frenchmen to take and try, and whether they want to make with us the thermal imagers here, on the territory of Ukraine. That would be litmusing paper. We would immediately look at the true face of Western partners: are they ready for serious production? Are they ready for the production of drones here in Ukraine? I give my head to rebuff that they will not go to it, because they are not profitable for them. They are holding us for the third world country, so they behave with us."- sums up the expert.

Great Britain is not planning a new sanctions against the Russian Federation due to poisoning in Amesbury,



The British government is currently not planning to impose new sanctions on Russia in connection with the latest poisoning that occurred in the city of Amesbury.

This was stated by UK Interior Minister Sajid Javed during a visit to Salisbury and Amesbury, according to Cenzor.NET, referring to Ukrinform.

"Interior Minister Sajid Javad said that the government is not planning to introduce new sanctions against Russia after the last poisoning in Wiltshire," the statement said.

According to the minister, it is not necessary to hurry with the conclusions and to give the police the opportunity to fully investigate the case.

"We know that Russians are poisoned in March, and we know that these were the barbaric and inhuman actions of the Russian state. As far as this particular case is concerned, we need to get more information and give the police time to investigate the case," said Javed.

We remind that in the city of Amesbury, in the county of Wiltshire in the south of England, on July 4 found unconscious husband and wife. Both are currently in a critical state, which is associated with the influence of an unknown substance.

The pair revealed symptoms similar to those seen by the ex-officer of the GRU Sergei Skrypka and his daughter Julia who were poisoned in Salisbury in March this year (the city of Amesbury is located 16 km from Salisbury).

The police found that the Fiddlers poisoned the nerve-paralytic substance of the "Newborn" type. The British authorities have accused Russia of being involved in poisoning.

The largest sponsor of Brexit Banks has met with Russian Ambassador Yakovenko 11 times

The largest sponsor of Brexit Banks has met with Russian Ambassador Yakovenko 11 times



Businessman Aaron Banks, who most of all donated to the UK campaign from the European Union, met at least 11 times with Russian Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko.

As the Cenzor.NET referring to Ukrinform, the Guardian reports.

It is noted that the meetings took place in the period before the referendum and within two months after it. The papers suggested to check the newspaper The Observer say that the Russian embassy has made four more invitations, but it is unclear whether they have been accepted.

Banks said last year that he had met with the Russian ambassador only once "during a drinking lunch". A month ago, The Observer discovered that the meetings were repeated. Banks told the parliamentary commission that he met the ambassador two or three times. Last week after publishing in The New York Times, he confessed in the fourth meeting. The Observer brought evidence of seven meetings, but then Banks refused to comment.

Probably, finance for the Brexit campaign was attracted by the sale of part of the Russian firm "Alrosa" to American investors, which helped to save $ 813 million in the Russian budget.
