Volker made an important statement on Ukraine and negotiations with Putin

on Wed Jul 25, 2018 4:00 pm
Volker made an important statement on Ukraine and negotiations with Putin

Representative of the US State Department for the Affairs of Ukraine Kurt Volker , Ukraine will find itself in a disadvantaged situation, unless extended by the law on the special status of the Donbas.

This is reported by Voice of America.

"I understand the disappointment of Ukrainian legislators and society that they took the necessary steps, such as the adoption of this law on the special status and amnesty law, but Russia did nothing to end the conflict and withdraw troops," Volker said.

According to Volker, the law was passed, but the application of this law was absent.

"Today there is no special status, he will work only in those conditions, when there will be an agreement, when Russia will withdraw troops and local elections will be held," adds the special representative of the United States.

In addition, he believes that more harm than termination of the law than from its continuation.

"I do not see any harm in the continuation of the law, nothing will change from today and until the day the law continues to go on. I think it's not bad at all, but Russia will use the suspension of the law as a reason to complain about Ukraine. they say that Ukraine does not want to comply with the Minsk agreements, so simply do not give Russia this argument. "The continuation of the law will not really change anything," Volker is certain.

Volker believes that it would be logical for the Ukrainian side to continue to press Russia and prevent it from using the suspension of the law against Ukraine.

EU has prepared a response to the possible introduction of Trump customs duties on car imports

on Wed Jul 25, 2018 4:02 pm
EU has prepared a response to the possible introduction of Trump customs duties on car imports

The European Commission will impose customs duties on imports of US goods, the total cost of which will be $20 billion, if US President Donald Trump decides to impose import duties on foreign cars.

This was announced by European Commissioner for Trade, Celisia Malmström, reports Reuters.

"We hope that this will not happen and we will be able to resolve this situation. If not, then the EU has prepared a list of US goods (which will be introduced in response to customs duties - ed.). Their total cost is $20 billion, "Malmström said.

In addition, the European Commissioner responded to a proposal by US President Donald Trump to simultaneously abolish all trade restrictions and subsidies to enterprises. In her opinion, this proposal is "not serious", since the US authorities, like the EU, grant privileges and subsidies to their commodity producers.

June 22, Donald Trump wrote on Twitter, considering the possibility of imposing duties on European cars in the amount of 20%. The EU has been informed that they are prepared to take a similar step in response .

Recall that on June 20, the European Commission finally approved customs duties on American imports in response to US customs duties on steel and aluminum. In particular, new tariff restrictions would apply to US goods worth a total of $2.8 billion.

On June 14, the European Union unanimously supported the introduction of US customs duties as a response to America's imposed steel and aluminum duties. After that, a decision by the European Commission was required.

Donald Trump introduced import duties on steel (25%) and aluminum (10%). The orders signed by the president came into force on March 23. Mexico, Canada and the EU were temporarily excluded from the list of countries.

On May 31, Trump canceled temporary exceptions for steel and aluminum from the EU, Canada, and Mexico. The EU has been told to introduce countermeasures.

The European Union and Canada were preparing to address the issue of the introduction of US customs duties on steel and aluminum through the mechanisms of the World Trade Organization. In particular, countries have already sent their complaints there .

In early June, it became known that the European Union announced plans to introduce additional duties of $2.8 billion of American goods in response to Washington's decision to introduce tariffs for European steel and aluminum.

Russian, US leaders reached agreements on Ukraine in Helsinki, Envoy Volker says

on Wed Jul 25, 2018 4:05 pm
Russian, US leaders reached agreements on Ukraine in Helsinki, Envoy Volker says



U.S. President Donald Trump did not reach any agreements on Ukraine during last week's two-hour private meeting with his Russian counterpart in Helsinki, Finland.

As reported by Censor.NET, in an exclusive interview with VOA's Ukrainian service, Kurt Volker, U.S. special representative for Ukraine negotiations, said that Kremlin remarks about the referendum were not only misleading but also blatantly implausible.

Russian President Vladimir Putin last week told a gathering of diplomats in Moscow that he and Trump discussed the possibility of an internationally supervised referendum in pro-Russian separatist regions of eastern Ukraine, a claim later reiterated by the Kremlin's ambassador to the U.S.

"Let me just say this — that on all of the issues that Ukrainians would care about, nothing was given away," Volker said. "No handing over of gifts to Russia at Ukraine's expense."

"There was no move toward recognition of Russia's claimed annexation of Crimea. No support for a referendum. No movement toward Russia's position on a protection force for [Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe] monitors that would effectively divide the country," said the U.S. diplomat, referring to Russia's controversial September 2017 U.N. proposal.

Russian mercenary says separatists', not Ukrainian troops’ mortar strike hit trolleybus stop in Donetsk in 2015

on Wed Jul 25, 2018 4:08 pm
Russian mercenary says separatists', not Ukrainian troops’ mortar strike hit trolleybus stop in Donetsk in 2015

Russian mercenary, propagandist Denis Lotov, who fought in the ranks of the DPR (breakaway "Donetsk People’s Republic") terrorists in 2014, admitted that it was actually not the Ukrainian troops, but the "Cossacks of Ataman Safonenko" who shelled the trolleybus stop in Donetsk on Jan. 22, 2015.

Well-known blogger Denys Kazanskyi said in his investigation of the bombardment that killed up to 15 and injured another 20 civilians in the Russian-occupied Donetsk, the blame for which the Russian-backed terrorists later put on the government forces, Censor.NET reports.

"There was no chance the Ukrops’ (pejorative term used by members of combined Russian-separatist forces for Ukrainian troops – Ed.) mortars could reach it (the trolleybus stop – Ed.). That’s why they told stories about another team of Ukrainian subversives riding a garbage truck or a commercial vehicle armed with a mortar. Here’s what really happened: there was a beef between Oplot and Safonov's Cossacks (Russian terrorists’ detachments – Ed.). Someone had wrestled something away from someone and the Cossacks retaliated.

"Anyway, the target of their mortar strike was the nearby Oplot’s base. They are actually poorly skilled mortar gunners, so they missed and hit the trolleybus stop instead. Naturally, when such a screw-up happens, no one will ever tell the truth. Therefore, they themselves urgently concocted a tall story about Ukrops slaughtering civilians in the ‘Donetsk People's Republic’," Lotov said.

The mercenary speaks about Cossacks’ involvement in the attack on civilians starting from the third minute of the investigation by Kazanskyi.

Pipeline work for the Nord Stream-2 began in Germany

on Wed Jul 25, 2018 4:12 pm
Pipeline work for the Nord Stream-2 began in Germany



The Nord Stream 2 company began laying the first pipes within the framework of the construction of the North Stream 2 pipeline, which plans to deliver fuel directly from Russia to Germany.
As reports Censor.NET, DW reports.

On the night of Wednesday, July 25th, the Castoro 10 boat-pipeworker began work at the landing docking station near Lubmin in the Greifswald Bay.

At the first stage, the segments of the pipes welded to each other on the vessel will be stretched by an underground tunnel leading to the ground receiving station, the representative of the company said. Two months ago, Nord Stream 2 started building a 30-kilometer submarine tunnel in coastal waters. In August, work on the direct laying of pipes will begin.

The construction of the disputable pipeline "Nord Stream-2" is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019.

Recall that the North Stream 2 project involves the construction and operation of two strands of a gas pipeline with a total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters of gas per year from the coast of Russia through the Baltic Sea to Germany. The head of "Gazprom" said that after the construction of the "North Stream-2" and "Turkish Stream" gas transit through Ukraine will be reduced by ten times. The head of the board of "Naftogaz" Andriy Kobolev said that Ukraine's losses in the event that Russia will stop the transit of gas, will amount to $3.5 billion a year.

Germany became the first country in which Nord Stream 2 AG received a complete set of building permits. Finland, after Germany, issued a complete package of permits for the construction of the North Stream-2. On June 7, Sweden approved the construction of the North Stream 2 pipeline in its waters. Currently, procedures for obtaining permits in other countries are continuing along the route of the gas pipeline - Russia and Denmark.

Russia has formed on the border with Poland more than 70 unions and military units

Russia has formed on the border with Poland more than 70 unions and military units

Since 2016, Russia has formed more than 70 unions and military units in the Western Military District, including two divisions and three brigades.

According to Censor.NET, referring to RBC, Sergei Shoigu, head of the Russian military department, said during a speech at a meeting of the Defense Ministry's Russian Defense Ministry.

As the Russian minister explained, the continuous improvement of the military composition of the troops and their base system from Russia requires "the situation in the western strategic direction."

According to Shoigu, new connections are now being created to accommodate new connections. In particular, more than 350 objects are planned to be put into operation by the end of the year, the head of the department noted.

In addition, the troops of the district, he said, put about 5 thousand units of new and upgraded weapons and equipment. This, as the minister said, "allowed to increase the equipment of modern armaments from 39 to 54%."

Earlier, on July 11th, the fact that Russia is rapidly upgrading its military infrastructure in the Kaliningrad region on the border with Poland, reported the satellite images of the Defense One newspaper.



These images, according to the portal, an analyst at 3Gimbals, a specialist in machine analysis, showed a possible strengthening of the buildings in the region. At the same time, this process, as noted by the expert, was similar to the construction of "fortified bunkers for explosives with the use of earth shafts of safety."

Also on satellite imagery, according to the portal's interlocutor, it was possible to notice construction of a new railway line. A similar activity, as noted by Defense One, was recorded in Abkhazia before the 2008 conflict.

To this, NATO Secretary General Yens Stoltenberg also drew attention to Russia's military activity in the Kaliningrad region. In an interview with RBC, he reported that representatives of the North Atlantic bloc noticed that in the past few years, "Russia militarizes the Kaliningrad region." As the Alliance noted, in particular, new modern weapons were placed.

"The best way to kill me is to extradite to Russia," the initiator of the "Act of Magnit", Browder commented on the idea of ​​the Kremlin to question him in Russia

"The best way to kill me is to extradite to Russia," the initiator of the "Act of Magnit", Browder commented on the idea of ​​the Kremlin to question him in Russia



Founder of the Hermitage Capital Foundation and one of the initiators of the Magnitude Act, William Browder, accepted Putin's proposal to interrogate him as an attempt to murder.

He stated this in an interview with the TV channel " Present Time", informs Censor.NET.

"Putin is a cold-blooded killer, in his count the many murders in Russia, the killing of his enemies abroad ... For me, he believes that the best way to kill me is to extradite him to Russia, put me in a Russian prison and kill him there", - he said and added that under no circumstances is it going to talk with Russian investigators, because "they are criminals".

Browder's interest in the Kremlin was explained by the fact that Putin hates him through the "Magnitsky Act".

"He hates him, because he has great wealth and he is the one who violates human rights, he believes his assets will be frozen, so he is so diligently looking for any ways in which I can be obtained," Browder said.

In Russia, William Browder is sentenced in absentia to nine years in a colony on charges of deliberate bankruptcy and tax evasion.

On July 16, at a summit in Helsinki, Russian President Vladimir Putin offered to arrange Browder's interrogation by Russian investigators. In exchange, the Russian leader promised to arrange interrogation in the United States of the GRU officers accused of interfering in American elections. Later it became known that US President Donald Trump rejected this proposal.
