The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine categorically rejects the idea of ​​a referendum in the occupied Donbas

The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine categorically rejects the idea of ​​a referendum in the occupied Donbas

Ukraine categorically rejects the idea of ​​the Russian President Vladimir Putin holding a referendum in the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

This was stated by the political director of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Alexei Makeyev.

"The Kremlin is desperately trying to legitimize its crime in the form of aggressive occupation of Crimea and Donbass. We categorically reject this strange idea of ​​holding a referendum in the occupied territories under the blow of a Russian pistol, "he said.

Makeev emphasized that such an idea is completely unacceptable for Ukraine and its partners.

On July 19, Bloomberg, referring to sources, said that Russian President Vladimir Putin at a meeting with the US president in Helsinki on July 16 offered Donald Trump a referendum in the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts.

According to sources, Putin spoke about his proposal at a meeting with Russian ambassadors on July 19.

The interlocutors of the agency say that the president of Russia said that it was decided not to voice the referendum initiative publicly, "so that the US president could think it."

Russia is preparing to deteriorate relations with the US and sells US bonds

on Fri Jul 20, 2018 12:44 pm
Russia is preparing to deteriorate relations with the US and sells US bonds

The central bank of Russia is massively selling US government debt bonds, fearing their further confiscation in connection with US sanctions.

This was reported by Bloomberg.

They report that over the past few months, Russia has sold about 80% of all US government debt held by it. Their total cost is $81 billion.

Bloomberg notes that such a massive "sale" of dollar assets began after the United States imposed sanctions against the closest encirclement of President Vladimir Putin in April 2018.

At the same time, it is noted that Russia has decided to send these funds to bank deposits around the world. However, in what currency these deposits are not yet known.

"The monthly statistics of the Central Bank show that deposits that the bank regulator of Russia opened in central banks of other countries, in April-May 2018, increased by $47 billion," the report says.

This policy in part corresponds to Putin's statements about the "US monopoly" and the need to "get rid of dollar dependence." However, it does not in any way override the fact that Russia sells for its dollars the largest item of its exports, energy resources.

"Last time Russia sold its dollar assets as massively after the annexation of Crimea in 2014 . Then the Central Bank sold 115 billion US dollars of bonds, fearing US sanctions. However, Russia subsequently invested these funds in US bonds, after it became clear that US sanctions would be much milder than expected in Russia, "Bloomberg reports.

Let's remind that in the United States sanctions against Russian oligarchs approaching Russian President Vladimir Putin in the case of Moscow's interference in the presidential election of 2016 have been imposed .

Shares of the Russian subsidiary of the Russian oligarch Deripaska doubled after the US sanctions. US companies began to cancel contracts with Russian organizations from the list of sanctions.

In addition, international investors who bought Rusal securities may lose $1.6 billion through US sanctions.

The day before, Rusal said they would change the leadership of the company in order to avoid US sanctions. At the same time, the US Treasury Department said that the only possible condition for the exclusion of a company from the sanction list was the departure from the management and influence of the Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska.

Italian minister has fallen into a big scandal with the receipt of money from Putin and a statement about Ukraine

Italian minister has fallen into a big scandal with the receipt of money from Putin and a statement about Ukraine

Deputy Prime Minister and Head of the Italian Ministry of the Interior, Matteo Salvini, said that Russia's annexation of Crimea was "legal" and called the revolution in Ukraine "fake" in 2014.

He told the Washington Post about this.

Salvini, a member of the right-wing party "League" (formerly "League of the North"), advocated the abolition of sanctions against Russia.

"Because they have not proved useful and, according to the information received, they damage the Italian exports," he said.

In addition, on the journalist's issue about the annexation of Crimea, the head of the Italian Interior Ministry said that "there are certain historically Russian zones with Russian culture and traditions that" lawfully "belong to the Russian Federation.

At the same time, he compared the occupation of the peninsula with the revolution in Ukraine.

"Compare it with the" fake "revolution in Ukraine, which was a" pseudo-revolution "funded by foreign countries - similar to the revolutions during the" Arab Spring "- Salvini said.

It should be noted that the letter to the party "Liga" was accused of accepting funds from the Russian ruling party "United Russia".

"It's fake news, we are judging those who report it, that's not true. We have never taken a single euro, a ruble or a single dollar," Salvina commented on this information. At the same time, the minister responded to the existence of an agreement between the parties "Liga" and "United Russia": "Yes, it was a political agreement that was broadcast on the World Wide Web. The subject of the agreement was the cooperation between youth movements in cultural and economic matters, similarly to other parties, such as the "National Front" in France and the "Party of Freedom" in Austria."
