"At the same time, everybody understands that Donald Trump solves a different task: he is trying to keep Putin in sight, to keep in touch, so that in the event of some kind of prudence in the Kremlin's policy somehow stimulate him." While this prudence is not forthcoming, Congress is taking the necessary measures. to interrogate the defendant with good and evil investigators - Americans are a common tactic, Trump acts as a good investigator, and the Congress is evil, "Borovyy said.

At the same time, he specified that their goals are the same - to stop the Kremlin's aggression against the United States and European countries.

"We had a great day, very big. We are starting (trade - ed.) Negotiations just now, but we already know what they will lead, "Trump said at a joint press conference with Juncker at the White House meeting.

On the eve of the meeting, Tramp said that if negotiations with EU representatives were unsuccessful, he would impose additional duties on the import of European cars to the country.

Trump and Juncker's statement has already hit the leading car manufacturers in Europe and the world. In particular, BMW's shares rose by 5.5%.

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 .

In Russia, a suspect in the US named Butina "a political prisoner"

on Thu Jul 26, 2018 12:03 pm
In Russia, a suspect in the US named Butina "a political prisoner"

In Russia, they said that the United States suspected of engaging in activities in favor of the Kremlin, Maria Butina, allegedly was a political prisoner.

This was stated by deputy representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia Artem Kozhin, the Russian news agency RIA Novosti reports.

"The arrest of Butina is due solely to the motives of American domestic and foreign policy, which means she is a political prisoner," the diplomat said.

The Foreign Ministry of Russia believes that the United States allegedly invented a story about Russia's interference in the US elections on "mercenary interests."

On July 25, the first court session in the case of Russian-born Butina took place in the USA. The judge stated that he could prohibit Maria Butina's lawyers from communicating information about the case to the media. This happened after the prosecutors expressed concern about the transfer of defense evidence.

US District Judge Tanya Chutkan has been indicted by August 8 to file a proposed defense order in order to prevent public disclosure of evidence in this case. At the hearing, prosecutors charged Robert D. Driscoll's defense lawyer with the fact that he distorts the case in television news interviews.

On July 16, it was reported that a Russian citizen was detained in Washington on suspicion of "penetrating into an American political organization." Arrested - 29-year-old citizen of the Russian Federation, Maria Butina, she was arrested on July 15.

In the United States, the great jury presented two allegations against the Russian woman, Maria Butine. Russians are officially accused of plotting and acting as a foreign agent in order to influence American politics. She faces up to 10 years in prison.

It was also reported that Butina contacted an official of the US Treasury Department .

On July 18, a court in the United States refused to release a suspect in the Russian agent's security activities on bail . The Russian Federation announces a "fabricated" case of Putin's Russian woman detained in the United States.

In the United States, a Russian woman, known as an activist for wearing a short-weapons weapon from the right to arms, is accused of attempting to organize an "unofficial communication channel" between the Republican Party and the Kremlin in the 2015-2016 election period. She allegedly acted with the deputy chairman of the Central Bank of Russia Alexander Torshin.

According to the prosecution, Butina worked in the interests of Torshin, trying to lobby for Russia through the National Infantry Association, which has a great influence on American politics.

"There is a certain order for the release of soldiers. We wanted this to be legally correct. Even Minister of Defense Stepan Poltorak ordered to release us and pay the appropriate funds. And in the command of the Special Forces Special Forces of the Armed Forces, we were simply told: "You are released, go from here." We were not given any papers and did not pay financially. We have two years with nothing. We were told to go to court. We did so, therefore, the case is going on ", - said Vladimir Ulyanov.
