on Tue Jul 17, 2018 2:40 pm
"Shameless, impressive and very unpleasant": in the United States, Trump was criticized after meeting with Putin

American and world politicians made a number of critical statements about US President Donald Trump after meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin

This is reported by "Voice of America" .

So, the US was outraged at the fact that the president did not support the findings of US intelligence on Russia's interference in the 2016 election, which, instead, "strongly and persistently denied." Putin. At the same time, at a joint press conference with Putin Trump called the investigation of the US Attorney General Robert Muller "a catastrophe for the country."

Republican senator, member of the armed forces committee, Lindsay Graham, who usually supports Trump, said that the president's speech demonstrates the weakness of the United States.

"President Trump has missed an opportunity to strongly urge Russia to take responsibility for interfering in the 2016 election and make a rigorous warning about the upcoming elections, which President Tramp will regard as a sign of weakness and will create more problems than solutions," wrote Graham on Twitter.

Miss Proctor, President Trump, to firmly hold Russia accountable for 2016 meddling and delivering a strong warning about future elections.

This answer by President Trump will be seen by Russia as a sign of weakness and creating far more problems than it solves. (1/3)

- Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) July 16, 2018


Senator Republican John McCain criticized Trump even more.

"Today's press conference in Helsinki was one of the worst performances by the American president in history," said McCain on Twitter, "it's difficult to estimate the damage done by Trump's naivety, his selfishness, the false perception of equivalence and sympathy for authoritarian leaders."

Today's press conference in #Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory.

One of the leading Republicans in the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan, said that there was no doubt about Russia's interference with American domestic politics.

"There is no doubt that Russia interfered in our election and continues to try to shatter democracy here and around the world. There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russia, which is still hostile to our core values ​​and ideals," he said. Ryan

Senator from Arizona Jeff Flake called the performance by Trump Sorom.

"I never thought that the day would come when the American president would stand on the stage with the Russian president and blame the United States for Russian aggression, it's a shame," Fleik said.

The Republican congressman from Illinois, Adam Kinzinger, criticized Trump for disregard for US intelligence.

"The American people deserve the truth and neglect the legitimacy of our intelligence - disrespect for the people who serve this country. It's time to look at the truth, Putin is not a friend, he is an enemy of our freedom," said Kinsinger.

Director of National Intelligence at the time of Barack Obama's presidency James Clapper accused Trump of capitulation and cowardice.

"The president of the United States was essentially capitulating and, apparently, was afraid of Vladimir Putin, it was impressive and very unpleasant," Klepper said.

The current head of national intelligence, Den Coats, insisted on the authenticity of data on Russian interference in American elections.

"We gave a very clear assessment of Russia's interference in the 2016 elections and Russia's persistent attempts to shake our ongoing democracy," Coates said.

The Democrats were also outraged by Trump's speech.

"He believed the words of a man from the KGB more than the words of the CIA staff. The president put his own interests above the security and accord of the United States," said Chuck Summer, Democratic Minority Leader in the Senate.

Virginia Senator Mark Warner, a member of the intelligence committee who agreed with the findings of the national intelligence on Russia's election interference, called the speech of Trump shameful.

"It's a real shame that the president was on Putin's side, not his own intelligence, and blamed the United States for Russia's attack on our democracy," Warner said.

Senator Elizabeth Warren, who could become the rival of Trump in the 2020 elections, said that Trump at the international level "disgraces America, undermines faith in our institutions, weakens our alliances."

"Russia intervened in our election and attacked our democracy. Putin needs to be held accountable, not rewarded." Shame ", added Warren.

Virginia Senator Tim Cain, who ran in pair with Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, called Trump's speech "a sad and shameful moment" for the country.

Sen.-Democrat from Florida Bill Nelson noted that there is a threat of Russia's interference in the upcoming Congressional elections.

"The refusal of our president to acknowledge that Putin intervened in our election should disturb us all. The president's reluctance to give him a stand against and stand up for our country is unacceptable and shameful," Nelson said.

Vice President of the United States Mike Pence refrained from criticizing Trump and did not comment on the statements of other politicians regarding the speech of the American president.

"The differences between our countries have been discussed in detail, the whole world and the American people have seen that President Trump always puts the prosperity and security of America at the forefront," Pens said.

At the same time, ex-director of the CIA in 2013-2017 John Brinon called Trump's speech a state treason.

"The results of Donald Trump's press conference in Helsinki are dragging on" serious crimes and misconduct. "It was nothing more than a betrayal." Trump's comments were not only imbecilive, he is completely in Putin's pocket. "Republican patriots, where are you?" - wrote Brennon.

Donald Trump's press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of "high crimes & misdemeanors." It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump's comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you ???

- John O. Brennan (@JohnBrennan) July 16, 2018


Former US Ambassador to Ukraine Stephen Pifer said that he had seen "such a bad and unpleasant performance for the first time".

"I have been watching American-Soviet / Russian presidential press conferences for more than 30 years, sometimes in person. However, I have never seen anything so bad and unpleasant as Donald Trump's speech. So, Putin, not Trump, says that Trump holds a position on the illegality of the annexation of Crimea by Russia ", - said Pifer.

The Washington Post , referring to White House officials and diplomats, said that Trump had ignored the majority of more than 100 pages of materials prepared by his advisers to meet with Putin.

World politicians also criticized Trump.

"Trump did not say anything about Russian interference in Ukraine: nothing, zero, absolutely nothing," said former Prime Minister of Sweden, Carl Bildt.

In addition, the US president did not say anything to Putin about Russia's aggression in Georgia and the downfall of the MH-17 passenger liner over the Donbass, the responsibility of which the international community puts on Russia after the findings of the investigation team.

At the same time, Putin, after meeting with Trump, began threatening "a very negative reaction" in the event of Ukraine's and Georgia's joining NATO. Putin also said that he had no compromise on Trump.

Tramp himself expressed satisfaction with the talks in Helsinki, saying that the meeting "knocked a wedge between the United States and Russia, which killed the investigation of the special prosecutor."

"Perhaps we just managed to knock out this wedge, but the investigation struck a wedge, and President Putin said this. One of the first things he said when we started was:" It's a real shame because we could do so much good ", - said Trump in an exclusive interview with Fox News .

-Recall that on July 16th in the capital of Finland, Helsinki, Donald Trump met with Vladimir Putin . The city held protests through a meeting of presidents.

-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said that Trump " did not pass any position on Ukraine".

Putin's Love Story and Trump in cartoons and memoirs. The reaction of social networks

on Tue Jul 17, 2018 2:46 pm
Putin's Love Story and Trump in cartoons and memoirs. The reaction of social networks

As the New York Times animated the American president in a multiplier way, attributing piquant "relations" with Putin, and "bombing" in social networks frustrated fans of Trump after the summit

The New York Times spoofed the US and Russian presidents, Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, with a cartoon clip depicting them as a "couple in a relationship."



As the Washington Post writes with reference to officials from the US presidential administration and diplomats, Trump at a meeting with Putin in Helsinki ignored most of the statements that White House staff members were preparing for the summit.

The White House prepared for Tramp more than a hundred pages of materials that spoke about "tough positions" in relation to Moscow, but that he refused most papers.

One of the interlocutors of the publication said that the statements of Trump "were opposite to the scheduled." The second source said that before the meeting between Trump and Putin, the American president's advisers discussed with him the annexation of the Crimea and the alleged Russian interference in the elections, but Trump made another decision on his statements at the summit.

Meanwhile, Arnold Schwarzenegger, an American film actor, businessman and politician, disappointedly questioned the meeting of two presidents.

Russia will "react negatively" to Ukraine's accession to NATO - Putin

on Tue Jul 17, 2018 2:49 pm
Russia will "react negatively" to Ukraine's accession to NATO - Putin

Russia will "react negatively" if the North Atlantic Alliance will include Ukraine or Georgia in its membership.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview with the American channel FoxNews.

"For us, this is a direct and immediate threat to our national security ... the movement of this NATO infrastructure towards our borders will be a threat, and ... the reaction will be extremely negative," said the Russian president.

Previously, NATO supported Ukraine's aspirations for joining the Alliance. As a result of the NATO summit, Allies supported Ukraine and called on Russia to withdraw troops from the Donbas.

On March 10, NATO recognized Ukraine as a postgraduate country . This means that the North Atlantic Alliance has recognized Ukraine's aspiration to gain full membership in the organization.

Poroshenko said that Ukraine plans to join NATO in the next 10 years.

Poroshenko also said that Ukraine remains in the priorities of the North Atlantic Alliance and US foreign policy. Thus, the president commented on the meeting and joint press conference of US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that "the door for Ukraine is open, but a number of requirements must be met."

"Russia must answer for its actions," - British Foreign Secretary Hunt, on the disaster of the MH17

on Tue Jul 17, 2018 2:53 pm
"Russia must answer for its actions," - British Foreign Secretary Hunt, on the disaster of the MH17



Britain urged Russia to acknowledge its responsibility for the Malaysian "Boeing" MN17 flight that occurred 4 years ago over the Donbas and to cooperate with the investigation.

"This is another example of the Russian Federation's neglect of human life and the rules that are the basis of the international system, and Russia must answer for its actions," says Jeremy Hunt, the Foreign Secretary of the United Kingdom on Tuesday, reports Censor.NET with reference to Interfax - Ukraine.

He recalled that, thanks to the work of the Joint Investigation Group, the world learned that the plane had been shot down by the Buk missile system from the 53rd Air Defense Forces of the Russian Armed Forces.

The Minister also expressed support for the United Kingdom of Australia and the Netherlands in their call to Russia to recognize the responsibility of the state and to cooperate in efforts to ensure that justice is provided to the victims of this tragedy. "Britain will continue to fully support the work of the Joint Investigation Group and calls on the Russian Federation to fully cooperate with the investigation and to provide any assistance it will request in accordance with UN Security Council Resolution 2166," he stressed.

In turn, the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands Stef Block wrote on Twitter that the MH17 flight accident was "a black page in history, which will be remembered all over the world today."

"The Netherlands will fight for truth and justice," he added.

Recall that the Boeing 777 aircraft of the Malaysian Airways, which traveled from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, was shot down July 17, 2014 in the Toreza area (Donetsk region). As a result of the fall, 298 people died.

Censor.NET repeatedly reported on the investigation of the causes of the Boeing disaster of the MN17 flight, and also unveiled exclusive hangar photos and photographs of the elements of "Buk-M1-2", which appear in the materials of the criminal case. The prosecutor's offices in the Netherlands and Australia have prepared a very convincing evidence base. In particular, it was found that the elements that struck "Boeing" exactly coincide with the filling of the combat part of the most recent Russian anti-aircraft missile "Buk-M1-2". The "Buk-M-1-2" complex was developed in 1997, put into service by the RF Armed Forces in 1998 and never delivered to Ukraine. Also, independent experts from Germany, England and Poland, studied fragment fragments and made their point: it is part of the Russian missile "Buk". The modern chemical examination absolutely accurately established the composition of the metal, discovered the particles of the material of the sheath and the glass of the destroyed liner, which pierced these elements before striking people.

In November 2015, President Petro Poroshenko stated during a visit to the Netherlands that Ukraine was using membership in the UN Security Council to investigate the Boeing tragedy of the MN17 flight.

In May 2016, the Australian law firm LHD filed a lawsuit against Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin in the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) on behalf of the relatives of the Boeing victims of the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17, shot down on July 17, 2014 over uncontrolled territories of eastern Ukraine parts of the country. The lawsuit, in which RF and V. Putin are identified as defendants and who claim compensation of $ 10 million for each passenger, was filed on May 9.

Last autumn, the International Investigation Team (JIT *) presented the findings that Malaysian "Boeing" was shot down by the "ground-air" missile from the "Beech" installation, which fired from the area of ​​the Donbas town of Snizhne (which at that time was under the control of the DPR ") The investigation team is represented by five countries: Malaysia, the Netherlands, Belgium, Australia, Ukraine. Russia refused to participate in the joint investigation of the group.

On May 24, the International Joint Investigation Team informed that the MH17 flight over the occupied Donbas area on July 17, 2014 was shot down by the Buk missile system, which belongs to the 53rd Air Defense Forces missile defense team of the Russian Armed Forces, which is stationed in Kursk.

The Kremlin's site distorted Putin's referendum in Crimea



In a joint press conference with the President of the United States, Russian President Putin, answering the question about the Crimea, said that "we held a referendum in strict conformity with international law." However, the press service of the Kremlin has decided to remove the word "we" from deciphering the speech of the president.

This is reported by Censor.NET.

"We believe that they held a referendum in strict conformity with international law and the United Nations Charter," Putin said on the Kremlin's official website.

The Kremlin's site distorted Putin's referendum in Crimea.

In fact, in his speech Putin clearly pronounced the word "we".

"The position of President Trump on the Crimea is well known, he adheres to it - he speaks of the unlawfulness of the accession of the Crimea to the Russian Federation. We have a different point of view: we believe that we held a referendum in strict conformity with international law and the United Nations Charter", - he said, answering the question of what the president of the USA said about the official recognition of Crimea as part of the Russian Federation.

The meeting between Trump and Putin only aggravated the confrontation between the United States and Russia

on Tue Jul 17, 2018 3:02 pm
The meeting between Trump and Putin only aggravated the confrontation between the United States and Russia



The meeting in Helsinki between the presidents of the United States and the Russian Federation - Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin - did not lead to an agreement between the parties, but only intensified the existing confrontation between the countries.

According to Censor.NET, the MP from the party "Petro Poroshenko Bloc", the head of the parliamentary delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, Irina Frisz, wrote on the Facebook page.

"President Trump has probably already become a leader of the state, which seeks to resolve conflicts between other countries: South Korea and North, Israel and Palestine, Ukraine and Russia. Perhaps subjectively, but after meeting with the North Korean leader, Trump looked more confident and Convincingly, however, Kim Jong-il continued to develop nuclear weapons, and Putin has been shaking hands with democratic states for the last 15 years, "writes Frice.

In her opinion, the meeting in Helsinki did not become an achievement of understanding, and "only strengthened the confrontation between the United States and Russia."

"The message, which the President of the United States repeated several times during a joint press conference, was about Putin's assurances of non-interference in elections. In fact, this accent was made solely for the United States, where the fact of interference in the elections creates grounds for doubting their legitimacy," he said. - she explained.

"Before the visit to Helsinki, the American Ministry of Justice took a step forward, arresting a Russian woman suspected of lobbying for Russia's interests in the United States, that is, by intervening in Washington's politics. So the political establishment, before the meeting, did everything so that ways to reach agreement with the aggressor would not it happened, "added Frice.

She noted that the reaction to the Republican meeting shows that there was an "interesting thing".

"Despite the leitmotif of the meeting and the position of the President of the United States, the only further possible step is to continue the counteraction to the aggressor. In the opposite case, accusations from the US political establishment will only increase," Frice said.

"However, the fact that the US intelligence chief said that the indicators on the Kremlin's intervention in the domestic affairs of the United States" lit up red "confirms that it is not possible to create an affiliate format in the current circumstances a priori," she concluded.

Schwarzenegger - Trump: Along with Putin you stood like a little fan ... I asked myself when you asked for an autograph or a selphi

Schwarzenegger - Trump: Along with Putin you stood like a little fan ... I asked myself when you asked for an autograph or a selphi

The Hollywood actor and ex-California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said that at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, US President Donald Trump seemed uncertain - "How little was a little macaroni".

"President Trump, remember that America is in the first place," Schwarzenegger signed his appeal.

He also said that at a press conference with Putin in Helsinki, Trump "looked like a little sifted macaroni".

"President Trump, I just looked at your press conference with President Putin, and it looked disgraceful, you stood there, as a little frank Macaroni, like a little fan ... I asked myself when you asked him for an autograph or a sephi," - said Schwarzenegger.

Putin can use Ukrainian hostages before the elections, giving them a loyal candidate to the Kremlin, Gerashchenko

on Tue Jul 17, 2018 3:09 pm
Putin can use Ukrainian hostages before the elections, giving them a loyal candidate to the Kremlin, Gerashchenko



There is no progress on the exchange of 36 Russians among Ukrainian political prisoners because Russia wants to use the issue of the release of Ukrainian hostages before the upcoming elections in Ukraine.

As the Censor.NET reports , Iryna Gerashchenko, representative of Ukraine in the Trilateral Contact Group on the Situation on the Donbass, said in an interview with Ukrinform.

"Putin will play this card, I do not reject it, before the election. I do not deny that Russia wants to use the same problem in some election campaigns in one way or another, perhaps by giving them loyal candidates to the Kremlin to show that they are only know how to negotiate with the Kremlin, conduct direct talks with ORDLOs, etc. That is, unfortunately, the fate of people is used very cynically and dirty for bargaining,"- said Gerashchenko.

She also noted that Russia still has no response to the initiative to send Russia 36 Russians and take political prisoners.

"He (President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin - Ed.) Simply so far is not going to give up, and certainly is not going to exchange them at 36," - she said.

At the same time, she noted that, despite the "narrowing of the window of opportunity", Ukraine tries to use all possible mechanisms for the liberation of Ukrainians. "You saw that the last weeks have brought - and the statement of the EU-Ukraine Summit, which calls for the release of hostages, and the statement of the NATO Summit, where this requirement sounds, and the statement of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, and the PACE resolution, and during the personal meetings of the Presidents Poroshenko with the colleagues Macron and Trump this theme was violated, "- said the first deputy chairman of the Verkhovna Rada.

She also noted that the world is now rather softly perceiving Russia's position on the release of hostages and reminded that Ukraine has urged other states to boycott the FIFA World Cup, "while Russia is waging war against Ukraine, assisting the Assad regime in Syria."

"Instead, some EU leaders have demonstrated dual standards by visiting the WWI in person and thus, on the contrary, have signaled that they can continue to attack, dismember and kill. I understand the importance of supporting their teams, but not least they supported Putin as well. the owner of this bloody championship,"- said the vice-speaker.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating possible links between Trump campaign associates and Russia as part of his probe into Moscow's attempts to interfere in the 2016 election.

U.S. Senator John McCain, Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in a statement that "press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory. The damage inflicted by President Trump’s naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate. But it is clear that the summit in Helsinki was a tragic mistake." with high expectations," - Trump on upcoming meeting with Russian leader

As reported, Putin and Trump met in Helsinki, Finland, on July 16.

Poroshenko: "We are ready and will defend our land even if left alone, without international support"

on Tue Jul 17, 2018 3:16 pm
Poroshenko: "We are ready and will defend our land even if left alone, without international support"



Ukraine will continue to defend its territory even if it loses the support of the international community.
As reported by Censor.NET referring to Liga media outlet, this was stated by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko on air of the Freedom of Speech TV show.

"We are ready and will defend our land even if left alone, without international support. Which is why we continue developing the army while the Armed Forces of Ukraine remain our top priority," Poroshenko said.

The president noted that the state must independently take care of its own security being able to ignore the demands of the international community for the sake of its own safety. This opinion was expressed by Poroshenko when he recalled the Budapest Memorandum signed in 1994, under which Ukraine gave up its nuclear arsenal in exchange for security assurances.

"Would anyone dare attack us if we had nuclear weapons?" the president said.

As noted, the Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances refers to three identical political agreements signed in Budapest, Hungary on Dec. 5, 1994, providing security assurances by its signatories relating to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Ukraine's accession to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. The Memorandum was originally signed by three nuclear powers, the Russian Federation, the U.S., and the UK. China and France gave somewhat weaker individual assurances in separate documents.

British Prime Minister Teresa May condemned Moscow's aggressive actions in recent years in the strongest terms just as U.S. President Donald Trump was meeting with President Vladimir Putin of Russia in Helsinki.

"... The appalling use of a nerve agent in Salisbury is another example of Russia’s growing ​disregard for the global norms and laws that keep us all safe. ... In recent years, we have seen Russia stepping up its arms sales to Iran, shielding the Syrian regime’s barbaric use of chemical weapons, launching cyber-attacks that have caused economic damage, and spreading malicious and fake news stories on an industrial scale," the prime minister said at Q&A session in the parliament on July 16, Censor.NET reports.

"Our long-term objective remains a constructive relationship with Russia, so it is right that we keep engaging, both as individual nations and as a NATO alliance. I welcome the meeting between President Trump and President Putin in Helsinki today, but as I agreed with President Trump in our discussions last week, we must engage from a position of unity and strength. This means being clear and unwavering about where Russia needs to change its behaviour, and for as long as Russia persists in its efforts to undermine our interests and values, we must continue to deter and counter them. That is exactly what we will do," May stressed.

"In that context, in a separate discussion during the summit, the alliance also reaffirmed our unwavering support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia and Ukraine. We continue to support both Georgia and Ukraine in their aspirations for full membership of the alliance.

"... We have obviously been supporting the Ukrainian Government in a number of ways, one of which is in the reforms that we believe are necessary there, as well as supporting their capability to deal with what has happened in parts of the country. We want to see the Minsk agreements fully put in place. Obviously, the failure of that is why we have been supporting, within the European Union, the continued imposition of the sanctions that were introduced in response to the action that Russia took in Crimea," British PM said.

Armed Forces of the Russian Federation concentrate tanks and artillery near the line of delimitation of the sides on the Donbas

Armed Forces of the Russian Federation concentrate tanks and artillery near the line of delimitation of the sides on the Donbas

The Ukrainian side of the CTSK informs that the armed forces of the Russian Federation, despite arrangements for the withdrawal of weapons, actively increase the number of military equipment near the line of demarcation.

This Cenzor.NET reported in the press center of the United Forces.

The statement reads:" Yes, on 17.07.2018 the OSCE SMM unmanned gear near the Alchevsk fixed movement of the self-propelled artillery division of the armed formations of the Russian Federation (SAU 2C1" Carnation", 122 mm caliber), the battery of towed MT-12" Rapira "anti-tank guns, caliber 100 mm and the division of towed cannons D-30 "Frog", a caliber of 122 mm, which is a direct violation of the Minsk agreements.

Outside the designated places of storage of weapons, a movement has been recorded: the "Carnation" self-propelled howitzers division; the division of towed howitzers D-30; batteries of the anti-tank gun "Rapira" and mortars "Sanya" in the amount corresponding to the artillery unit.

A concentration of a tank battalion armed with T-64 and T-72 tanks was recorded at the landfill near the Mirna settlement.

On July 18, 2018, near the settlements of Kruglik and Uspenska, the unmanned gunman of the OSCE SMM recorded a concentration of 60 tanks, a self-propelled howitzers division 2C1, a towed artillery division, and a 990 "Strela-10" anti-aircraft missile system battery.

Thus, for only two days, the terrorist forces of the Russian Federation concentrated on these directions forces and means that are equivalent to at least two tank regiments, five artillery divisions, as well as air defense means.

These measures, which are carried out in spite of all the agreements and commitments on the delimitation of parties and the withdrawal of military equipment, are regarded not only as an unprecedented provocation, but also as a sign of the preparation of armed formations of the Russian Federation for active action.

The SCCC considers the movement of a significant number of military equipment of the armed formations of the Russian Federation and its concentration outside the designated places of storage as another attempt by militants to provoke opposition from units of the United forces and as direct evidence of a clear interest of the Russian leadership in exacerbating the situation on the collision line.
