Ukraine was told what to expect in the Donbass after Putin's meeting with Trump

Ukraine was told what to expect in the Donbass after Putin's meeting with Trump

Russian President Vladimir Putin's meeting with American leader Donald Trump will be a key point that will determine the further course of events in the Donbas.

About this "Apostrophe" was told by the coordinator of the "Information Resistance" group, People's Deputy Dmytro Timchuk.

It is noted that on the eve of the meeting with Trump Putin, it will be necessary to take certain steps, as well, since, among other things, Ukraine will be discussed, the absence of active Russian actions in the Donbas and reports on escalation in the region will be discussed.

"Putin expects that, after a slight calm, which, obviously, will last until July 16, the issue of Ukraine will not stand so sharply in communicating with the US president. And as a result of the meeting, on the basis of the agreements, on the basis of what we hear from the American side , Putin will draw conclusions and give further instructions on the actions of Russian occupation troops in the Donbas, "said Timchuk.

"This meeting will be a key point that will determine the further actions of Russians in the Donbas," he summed up.

Putin has two options for Ukraine: everything depends on Trump

on Mon Jul 09, 2018 11:16 am
Putin has two options for Ukraine: everything depends on Trump

Dmytro Tymchuk named two reasons for the weakening of the actions of militants in the Donbas



The relative calm of the Russian occupation troops in the Donbas is explained by two factors: the holding of the World Cup and the meeting between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump . Negotiations between the US and Russian presidents will be a key point that will determine the further actions of Russians in the Donbas. This opinion was presented to the "Apostrophe" by the coordinator of the "Information Resistance" group, People's Deputy Dmytro Timchuk.

At the moment, Putin has several factors in which the escalation in the Donbas does not play his hand. He needs to make this pause to solve a series of tactical and strategic issues.

The tactical issue is, first of all, to complete the World Cup. We see that Russia has gained even more from this championship than it wished, that is, it showed its attractiveness, showed that it was not a beast, but a state with a human face. We see what kind of information campaign accompanies this, in particular with the participation of foreign media. In terms of image, this measure was even more successful than the Kremlin assumed.

The strategic issue is Putin's meeting with Trump, in the eve of which he needs to go some steps and show himself. At this meeting, Ukraine will be discussed. And, understanding Trump's impulsiveness, Putin needs to have no reports of escalation on the eve of the meeting, about any active actions of Russian troops in the Donbas.

Putin expects that after a slight lull, which, obviously, will last until July 16, the issue of Ukraine will not stand so sharply in communicating with the US president. And as a result of the meeting, following the outcome of the agreement, on the basis of what we hear from the American side, Putin will draw conclusions and give further instructions on the actions of the Russian occupation troops in the Donbas.

This meeting will be a key point that will determine the further actions of Russians in the Donbas.

At the same time, I do not rule out that Putin can significantly weaken the Russian presence in the Donbas. Given how Trump was brave enough to deal with the DPRK at that degree of tension that had been in the US-North Korea relationship for many years, and already today, the DPRK is ready for steps that even yesterday seemed to be impossible in terms of nuclear disarmament, then I I do not rule out that in communicating with Putin there may be moments that will affect the decision of the Kremlin in terms of conduct in the Donbas.

But while we can not assume that Trump will offer Putin, will he be blackmailed. That is, what may be the terms of the bargaining. Therefore, it is theoretically possible to assume that Putin after his meeting with Trump can greatly weaken his presence in Ukraine. But this is from the category of divination on the coffee grounds.

EU will ask the United States to have Trump discuss Putin's release of Ukrainian political prisoners

The European Union will ask the United States to release the Ukrainian political prisoners of the Kremlin as one of the forthcoming talks between US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

This was announced by the President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, according to the results of the XXth Summit of Ukraine-EU.

"I will continue to call for the immediate release of our prisoners. I hope that this issue will be part of the meeting between Trump and Putin in Helsinki. I will meet with the US ambassador today and I will convey this message to them, "Tusk said.

He emphasized that the image of Russia depends not only on the conduct of the World Cup, but also on policies and international law.

"I hope that Russia will have a positive decision on the release of the prisoners," said the President of the European Council.

Donald Trump to meet with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on July 16. This will be their third meeting.

In the framework of the Ukraine-EU Summit, the President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, called for the release of Ukrainian director, political prisoner Oleg Sentsov and other captives of the Kremlin.

Earlier, Ukraine handed over to the United Nations Secretary-General a list of political prisoners in the Kremlin.

On June 14, the European Parliament supported the resolution on the immediate release of Oleg Sentsov and other Ukrainian political prisoners in the Kremlin.

Ukraine is ready to transfer Russia with 13 more convicted persons with dual citizenship, with the exception of 23 agreed earlier, in order to release Ukrainian political prisoners.

The Kremlin commented on the possibility of exchanging Sentsov and other Ukrainians on Russians convicted in Ukraine.

It should be noted that in Russia and in the annexed Crimea, there are 64 Ukrainian political prisoners, 27 of whom are in Russia.

58 - detained in the Crimea or in cases related to the Crimea. These figures do not take into account the prisoners held in the territory of self-appointed republics.

Britain will increase the presence of the Navy in the North Atlantic due to an increasing threat from the RF



Britain's armed forces will increase their presence in the North Atlantic to counter the threat from the RF.

As informs Censor.NET with reference to Ukrinform, the head of the Royal Navy of Great Britain Admiral Philip Jones declared this, reports Sky News.

"The British Armed Forces will increase its presence in the North Atlantic to confront the growing threat from the Russian Federation," the statement said.

As Jones said, the fleet's task will be to protect the most important submarine cables, because through these cables, which are located at a depth of one thousand meters, about 97% of the world's communications are being transmitted, and almost $ 10 trillion is spent through daily financial transactions.

He added that he is aware that Russians have the opportunity to detect these cables and "work" with them at a great depth.

It is noted that a few weeks ago, the US announced the re-launch of the Navy's Second Fleet in the Atlantic, also in response to Russia's actions.

British Air Force aircraft brought combat fighters to Odessa to participate in the "Sea Breeze 2018" exercise

on Mon Jul 09, 2018 11:36 am
British Air Force aircraft brought combat fighters to Odessa to participate in the "Sea Breeze 2018" exercise



The plane ran from the base of the RAF to Bryce Norton on July 8 at 14:40, and at 18:40 he touched the runway of the Odessa airfield. At 20:40 he took off again and took a course home.

Fighting swimmers (presumably these are Special Boat Service servicemen - "Special Marine Service") will take part in the international naval exercises "Sea Breeze".



Of considerable interest is the plane on which British divers have arrived. Despite the fact that "Atlases" are produced for seven years, they rarely happen in Ukraine.



Airbus A400 aircraft are considered to be "brothers" of the Ukrainian An-70, which is more than twenty years old. At present about 50 cars are being produced by the Air Forces of France, Germany, Great Britain, Spain, Malaysia and Turkey.

European Commissioner Jean-Claude Juncker, in turn, said that the EU "was concerned about the process of corruption in Ukraine, but also noticed huge progress in this direction."
