The Pentagon has supported the initiative to invite Putin to Washington

US Deputy Chief of Defense John Rud announced support for the White House's decision to invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to arrive in Washington DC in the fall of 2018

"I think an exchange of views and an honest discussion between our leaders is something that needs to be done. I think this is a very normal and practical thing," Rud said during an interview with CNN.

The Pentagon's deputy chairman noted that in recent years, US presidents constantly had an exchange of views with Russian counterparts and called Russia "an important country on the world stage."

"President Putin visited the White House earlier, he had previously visited the United States, for example, when I served in the White House under George W. Bush, he came home to President Bush in Crawford, Texas, and also went fishing with him to Kennebunkport, state Maine. It's not something special, like me, "added Rud.

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. The meeting between Trump and Putin in Helsinki was the first individual negotiation between them, not on the margins of wider international summits, as well as the first in the history of the talks between US and Russian presidents themselves, with the participation of only translators. Putin and Trump spent the aunt's about two hours.

American and world politics sharply criticized Trump for his behavior during a meeting with Putin, in particular, for public doubts in US intelligence. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said that Trump " did not pass any position on Ukraine".

Trump commissioned the National Security Advisor John Bolton to invite Putin to Washington.

The Pentagon asked the Congress not to extend sanctions on cooperation with Russia to some countries

on Sat Jul 21, 2018 2:20 pm
The Pentagon asked the Congress not to extend sanctions on cooperation with Russia to some countries

US Defense Secretary James Mattheys appealed to Congress not to punish some countries for cooperation with Russia, which is subject to US anti-Russian sanctions

This is stated in a speech to the chairman of the Senate Committee on Armaments John McCain, reports Radio Liberty.

Mettis said that Russia should answer for its "aggressive, destabilizing behavior", but punishment should not apply to allies of the United States or other countries with which Washington develops ties.

Mettista's appeal is based on the likelihood of a proliferation of sanctions against India and other Asian countries with which the United States is trying to establish closer relations, but who are buying weapons in Russia. Thus, India is the largest global importer of defense equipment and has been purchasing Russian military equipment for decades. Indian officials conducted talks in Moscow on the purchase of anti-missile systems S-400.

James Mattheys and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo plan to visit the Indian capital Delhi for talks in September. The appeal came at a time when many legislators from both American parties called for tougher sanctions against Russia.

-As a reminder, the British Government has developed a national sanctions regime against Russia , which will begin to take effect after the departure of the United Kingdom from the EU.

-Ukraine, Montenegro, Albania, Norway, Georgia joined the decision of the EU Council on June 18 to extend sanctions against Russia for the annexation of the Crimea by June 23, 2019.

Very dangerous precedent: named serious consequences for the world in the event of the Crimean seizure of Trump recognition

In the event that Trump recognizes the annexation of the Crimea by Russia , territorial claims of such a plan may also arise in other countries.

This was written by a Ukrainian diplomat Alexander Hara in a column on "Apostrophe".

"If we talk about Ukraine, the United States considers Crimea as a very dangerous precedent, because if Trump recognized the Crimea, then there are other states that have territorial claims. Take the same China with Taiwan, then the Chinese will say that if Russia can to hold a referendum and occupy the Crimea, why not even check the same with our original territory, which is near. I'm not talking about the islands in the South China Sea that severely restrict navigation and violate the interests of the coastal states. In other words if America is the same To agree with what China does in the South China Sea, it automatically refuses to control the seas, flows of goods, energy, and so on, "he assured.

The US Treasury Department has allowed the exclusion of Russian "Rusal" from the sanction list

on Sat Jul 21, 2018 2:56 pm
The US Treasury Department has allowed the exclusion of Russian "Rusal" from the sanction list

The US Department of the Treasury is ready to exclude from the sanction list of the Russian manufacturer of aluminum "Rusal" because the company "is important for the world aluminum market".

US Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin announced this, reports Reuters.

According to him, the Russian company appealed to the Ministry of Finance with a request to remove from it the US restrictive measures.

"I'm not going to talk about the specifics of these proposals now, and about where we are now on them, but if we can find a satisfactory solution, this is our goal (deletion of sanctions is ed.)," Said Mnuchin.

He added that the withdrawal of "Rusal" from business is not the goal of the United States, because this company "is important for the world aluminum market."

As it was reported, the leadership of "Rusalo" resigned and warned about problems with repayment of debts.

The company explained that they would change the leadership 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 Deripeski.

At the same time, it was reported that Deripaska still remains the owner of Rusal .

Recall, the United States imposed sanctions against Russian oligarchs close to Russian President Vladimir Putin in the case of Moscow's intervention in the 2016 presidential election.

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 Russian company itself has already stated that it will export aluminum to China instead of the United States.

Tomos will be given to Ukraine exactly this year, - Filaret



Constantinople will provide autocephaly to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church after the patriarch informs all local churches about his decision.

This opinion was expressed by the patriarch of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchate Filaret, according to Censor. NET with reference to Gordon.ua.

"A special commission was created for the three metropolitans of the Patriarchate of Constantinople, which circulates all the local churches. It is important to understand: they do not ask for consent for the provision of tomos, but simply inform about the intention of Constantinople," he said.

Filaret noted that the Ecumenical Patriarch can provide tomos independently, without the prior consent of other Orthodox churches.

"Since the delegation has not yet traveled all the local churches, the announcement of the decision on tomos is a bit delayed. According to the procedure, according to the results of the detour, the delegation should prepare a corresponding report to be considered at the Synod meeting and in fact the decision will be made. Tomos will be given this year already, when it is - in the moon or in the autumn - there is no concrete, but exactly this year ", - stressed the head of the UOC-KP.

Recall that on April 17, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko announced that he had decided to appeal to the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew with a request to issue a tomos about autocephaly of the Ukrainian Local Church.

On April 18 he held a meeting with the leaders of the Orthodox churches of Ukraine and officially accepted the transfer to the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Appeal on the provision of the Ukrainian church of tomos on autocephaly with the signatures of all the bishops who supported this decision.

The Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate urged the UOC-Moscow Patriarchate to support efforts for the canonical recognition of the Ecumenical Patriarch of Ukrainian Church Independence.

For his part, the representative of the UOC-MP, deputy head of the Department of External Church Relations of the UOC Archpriest Nikolai Danilevich said that an attempt to create a Ukrainian national autocephalous church would not produce results.

On April 19, the Verkhovna Rada supported the address of President Poroshenko to the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew to grant the Ukrainian Orthodox Church an autocephaly.

On April 22, Poroshenko said that the Ecumenical Patriarchate began to consider the request of Ukraine.

It became known about serious problems with the Putin bridge to the Crimea

Visitors to the Kerch Bridge opened in May 2018 , which united Russia with the occupied Crimea , point out the rapidly damaged road cover and claim that the city has literally "started to collapse".

"The bridge at the entrance to the Crimea began to collapse" - indicate in the signature of the video.

"Meaningless russkiy measures got to Kerch" "Nonsense. Putin personally delivers on the bridge and in the Kerch Strait good weather. Regular father regularly fly over the bridge with icons. Ice winter will be. The relevant bill has already submitted to the Duma. Soil appreciated respective brace", "Kerch is lowered to Russian standards", - they write in the comments.

Hungary really tried to prevent the President of Ukraine from joining the NATO summit, we will not forget that

Hungary really tried to prevent the President of Ukraine from joining the NATO summit, we will not forget that



Hungarian diplomats prepared proposals for their political leadership to use NATO as a platform for billing with Ukraine, and also tried to prevent President Poroshenko from hosting the Alliance Summit.

This was stated by Head of the Mission of Ukraine to NATO Vadym Prystaiko in an interview with Glavkom , informs Censor.NET.

"They have made a real difference, they really tried to prevent the president of Ukraine from joining the NATO summit, we will not forget about that," Pristayko said, adding that Poroshenko had the opportunity to meet with the leaders of the Alliance together with representatives of Georgia.

The diplomat recalled that on June 22, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine and Hungary Pavlo Klimkin and Peter Siiyarto, as well as the Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine Lilia Grinevich and the Minister of Human Resources of Hungary Miklosas Kashler met at the meeting, in which it was agreed that the next meeting of the Transcarpathian Hungarian community with the Ministry of Education Ukraine will take place on July 11-12, and also the fact that the Verkhovna Rada will soon consider the proposals of the government to postpone the deadline for the introduction of a new law on education, and in the fall deputies will be able to receive information on the law on secondary education, in order to resolve the issue of volumes of language learning.

"As if all the negotiators agreed to this, only three days after the meeting comes a letter from Hungary to all NATO members, in which it was written that Ukraine has come to negotiate empty-handed, and thus blocking Ukraine's participation in the NATO summit will continue. They pretend that the talks are going but keep the letters prepared in advance that there is no progress ", - summed up Pristayko, stressing that it is possible to conduct a discussion on the law on education professionally and diplomatically" in order not to take hostages of NATO".

The fact that the Hungarians did not block meetings in the Ukraine-Georgia-NATO format is a definite step towards Budapest. The head of the mission of Ukraine to NATO also hopes that attempts to block Ukraine's participation in the summit are the maximum point that the conflict has come about.

We remind the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Hungary on September 26, 2017, that it intends to block Ukraine's rapprochement with the EU and NATO through the law on education.

Hungary has already blocked the holding of the Ukraine-NATO Commission at ministerial level for three times due to claims to the language article of the Ukrainian Education Law. The Hungarian authorities explained that in this way it exerted pressure on Ukraine, demanding a revision of the linguistic norm of the law on education.
