US Ministry of Finance has weakened sanctions against Russian oligarch Deripaska

on Wed Aug 01, 2018 1:42 pm
US Ministry of Finance has weakened sanctions against Russian oligarch Deripaska

The US Treasury Department has extended the term for investors to freely sell shares of Rusal, owned by the Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska.

This was reported by Bloomberg.

In the introduction of sanctions against the oligarch in early April 2018, it was about imposing a ban on trading shares in a company that is one of the world's largest aluminum producers. At the same time, the US Treasury Department gave investors time to sell their shares to Rusal until August 5, 2018.

By its decision on Tuesday, July 31, the US Treasury Department extended this period until October 23. Thus, the date of actual imposition of sanctions against the company was postponed.

On April 4, 2018, the United States imposed sanctions against Russian oligarchs close to Russian President Vladimir Putin in an attempt to intervene in Moscow 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, it was reported that international investors who bought Rusal securities could lose $1.6 billion through US sanctions.

In the Russian company itself, they said they would export aluminum to China instead of the United States.

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.

Trump urged the Attorney General to close the case on Russia's interference in elections

on Wed Aug 01, 2018 1:44 pm
Trump urged the Attorney General to close the case on Russia's interference in elections

US President Donald Trump appealed to US Attorney General Jeff Seschans to close an investigation into Russia's likely involvement in the 2016 US election.

Trump said on Twitter.

The US leader said he believes the prosecutor Robert Muller, who is investigating the case, is "biased."

"Attorney General Jeff Sesshns must immediately stop this fabricated" witch hunt "so that it does not continue to stain our country. Bob Muller is absolutely biased, and 17 angry democrats who make his dirty work are a shame for the United States, "Trump wrote.

Recall that the US Department of Justice has prosecuted 12 employees of the Russian Main Investigation Department (GRU), accusing them of interfering in the US presidential election in 2016.

Scammers were accused of breaking the services of the Democratic Party Committee, as well as Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

The United States began investigating Russia's interference with the presidential election in 2016, after the trilogue adviser to the Australian diplomat said. Subsequently, it became known that the Special Prosecutor Müller found evidence of a connection between the Kremlin and Trump before his inauguration.

In February 2018, Muller put forward official charges against 13 Russians who are considered involved in interference with the 2016 presidential campaign.

In the list, in particular, Yevgeny Prigozhin, as well as the Internet Research Agency (known as the "troll factory" whose employees write paid comments in support of the Russian authorities) and the company Prigogine Concord Managament and Concord Catering.

Donald Trump's ex-head of Polling Headquarters Paul Manafort also tried to challenge Müller's appointment. One court rejected his claim, the other continues to consider.

It was also reported that a businessman approaching Putin challenged Russia's interference in the US presidential election.

There were interesting details about the main enemy of the activist "Sarmata" killed in Berdyansk

on Wed Aug 01, 2018 1:46 pm
There were interesting details about the main enemy of the activist "Sarmata" killed in Berdyansk

According to the acquaintances of the victim killed in Berdyansk activist and veteran ATO Vitaly "Sarmata" Oleshko , the only person who wanted his death was a people's deputy from the group "Will of the people" Alexander Ponomariov.

A local activist, Maria Dragozova, told "Apostrophe" about this in a Blitz interview.

According to her, Ponomariov is the actual "master" of Berdyansk.

" His people control all the structures of the communal economy." The Mayor of Berdyansk Chepurny is a hand-made creature of Ponomariov, and most of the parties in Berdyansk have long been bought by Ponomarev from the BPP to the Socialist Party, from the BYuT to the part of the Opole Bloc, with almost no real opposition, and Ponomarev controls most of the city's enterprises. I do not even go on to name all the assets where he has a share. Almost all the media in the city are in his hands, "Dragozova says.

Also, the activist claims that the People's Deputy is accustomed to using different methods to achieve their goals.

"In Ponomariov's specific business style, he himself is a difficult person, he does not go through the methods, if he wants something, he achieves it in any way, even by" pumping out "the money to buy a penny. He is setting himself up for his subordinates.There is a practice in Ponomariov: he puts his employees in debt bondage, money on credit and a sum of money twice as much as debt, and then he scorns man as a thing, »she says.

As to the conflict with the murdered Vitaliy Oleshko, Dragozova emphasizes that he began immediately after the activist returned from the ATO zone.

" Ponomariov at one time was one of the" owners "of the Party of Regions in Berdyansk, during which he actually played with our separatists, so there were many questions to him in the patriotic party," Sarmati "was the brightest of his representative. As soon as he returned from the ATO, he immediately plunged into activism... The conflict between Sarmata and Ponomarev grew like a com. It all began with the fact that Vitaliy demanded from the new mayor of Chepurn to show the estimates of purchases for school repairs. "He declined, and then it turned out that the contractor, which did repairs - this is one with Mpani Ponomarev, got caught up, and suffered. Wherever "Sarmati" would not dig in the mayor's office and around Chepurnogo, he would face Ponomarev's interests, "the activist says.

" The only person who wanted Sarmat to disappear was a People's Deputy Ponomariov, who was persecuted by Vitaly," she concludes.

In Finland, Crimean residents were let in with passports in Russia: they are threatened with deportation

on Wed Aug 01, 2018 2:14 pm
In Finland, Crimean residents were let in with passports in Russia: they are threatened with deportation

Two residents of the annexed Crimea - spouses Natalia Kushnarenko and Mikhail Berezhny - were allowed to Finland with Russian foreign passports and issued to citizens a Finnish tourist visa. Now the couple is threatened with deportation.

As Ukrainian Ambassador to Finland Andriy Olefirov said on air "Radio Crimea. Realia", this could have been due to an error.

"These citizens were originally allowed to travel to Finland for a tourist visa because of the human factor: each year in the consulates in St. Petersburg, issued up to one million Schengen visas. Legislation prohibiting the issuance of visas to such persons, of course, is not - it's just the will of the European Union member states in response to the appeal of the Ukrainian side", - said the ambassador.

Olefirov added that the last instance in such matters is not a consulate, but the migration authority, which is already checking the documents of the visitors in the country.

"When the Finnish immigration authorities understood where these persons came from and that this is the same series of documents issued in the Crimea, they went to the recommendations of our Foreign Ministry. All Crimeans are considered citizens of Ukraine to withdraw from citizenship ", - summed up the diplomat.

On July 27, Russian media reported that Russian citizens, married to Natalia Kushnarenko and Mikhail Berezhny, could be threatened with deportation from Finland to Ukraine because they received their Russian passports in the Moscow annexed Crimea.

In Finland, the family moved in September 2017 to tourist visas received at the Consulate General of Finland in St. Petersburg. Upon arrival, they registered the company and submitted documents for obtaining a residence permit.

On July 25, the US State Department released a United States Declaration on the Crimea , in which the United States confirms the policy of non-recognition of Crimea as a Russian territory. The document entitled "Crimean Declaration" states that Russia's annexation of the peninsula undermined the fundamental international principle - no country can force the borders of another.

"The states of the world, including Russia, have agreed to this principle and expressed it in the UN Charter, promising to refrain from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state," reminded the State Department.

The United States urges Russia to respect the principles it has long adhered to and to end the occupation of the Crimea.

Earlier, Italy's interior minister, Matteo Salvini, said he believes annexation by Russia of Crimea "legitimate" , and the revolution in Ukraine is "fake".

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine expressed indignation through this statement.

On March 16, 2014, in the territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, a referendum on the status of the peninsula was held by an unrecognized world community. Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on March 18, 2014, "the inclusion of Crimea in the Russian Federation" - thus Russia annexed the Ukrainian peninsula. Ukraine, the European Union and the United States did not recognize the results of the voting on the so-called "referendum".

Journalists killed in the Central African Republic could investigate the connection between Russia's Wagner's PVK and Islamists

on Wed Aug 01, 2018 2:20 pm
Journalists killed in the Central African Republic could investigate the connection between Russia's Wagner's PVK and Islamists

According to one version, the murder in the Central African Republic of Russian journalists from the Investigation Center could be attributed to their investigation into the collaboration of a private military company Wagner with Islamists who were previously part of a coalition of Muslim rebels Selek
This is with reference to a number of signs reported by the International Investigators Group of Conflict Intelligence Team.

According to colleagues of murdered journalists, Orhan Gemal, Alexander Rastorguev and Cyril Radchenko were originally going to Berengo, where Russian mercenaries should train the government forces of the CAR in the former residence of the bomber dictator Bokassi.

There, the members of the ZUR were not allowed, after which they went to the city of Kaga-Bandaro in the north of the country.

"The city was already hit by the Central African media in connection with the Russians in April, when the local population blocked the Cessna light-engined airplane with four" Russian military experts, "the CIT said.

Local authorities then told citizens that the Russian mission was involved in negotiations with local rebels "to establish peace in the country."

However, this version was not believed by either the local population or the media.

According to the French political scientist-internationalist Francois Didier, the PKK fighters are located in the area of ​​mineral deposits in the northeast of the country and conclude agreements with local groups, the opposition's central government.

At present, both settlements, and Kaga-Bandrou and Bambari, to which Russian journalists have departed, are under the control of groups that previously belonged to Seleuca.

"In order to understand the motives of the connections of the ex-Selec groups from the Russian PMC, we turn to the map of mineral deposits in the Central African Republic. It shows that on the territory under the control of the former Selce there are deposits of diamonds (marked on the map with blue squares)," attention experts.

At the same time, in 2017 Russians in the Central African Republic founded the Lobaye Invest company connected with Wagner's PVK, the mining interests of which could be explained by the agreement of the PKK with the groups of the former Seleuca in the northeast of the country (indirectly, the existence of such agreements is confirmed by the incident with Cessna).

At the same time, dealing with anti-government forces contradicts the official statements of the Russian Federation on its objectives in the Central African Republic, which include "the restoration of state power throughout the country."

"It is precisely because of this unambiguous position that Russia has obtained the permission of the UN Security Council to import arms to the country to circumvent the embargo. It can be assumed that it was the investigation of the cooperation of Russian IPCs with the opponents of the central government of the CAR and was aimed at a fatal trip of Russian journalists," the CIT stressed.

However, in spite of this, it is not clear at this time that the death of Dzhemal, Rastorguev and Radchenko is connected with this investigation.

Earlier it was reported that on July 31, 23 kilometers from the city of Sibiu, bodies of three Russian citizens were found with press-cards.

Later it turned out that they belong to journalist Orhanov Dzhemal, director Alexander Rastorguev and operator Cyril Radchenko, who, on request from the Russian Investigation Department, filmed a documentary about the work of mercenaries from the Russian Federation.

WikiLeaks founder Assange may leave Ecuador's embassy because of health problems

on Wed Aug 01, 2018 2:33 pm
WikiLeaks founder Assange may leave Ecuador's embassy because of health problems

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, who is hiding at the embassy of Ecuador in London, may soon leave him for health problems.

Bloomberg writes about it, citing two of its sources.

Sources said that Assange's health has worsened recently, and "it is expected that in the near future he will give up his self-isolation at the embassy."

On July 27, the president of Ecuador stated that he had never supported the founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, who was hiding at the embassy of Ecuador in London.

Let's remind, Assange lives in the embassy of Ecuador in London for more than five years. Under the agreement between him and the authorities of Ecuador, he was banned from sending any messages that could interfere with South American relations with other countries.

In January 2018, he received the citizenship of Ecuador.

The government of Ecuador has provided shelter to the founder of WikiLeaks when he tried to avoid extradition to Sweden through investigations into allegations of rape and sexual harassment.

December 1, 2010 Interpol issued Assange's arrest warrant, he was announced on an international wanted basis on charges of Sweden in rape in the city of Enkoping, two cases of sexual harassment (in Jonkoping and Stockholm) and "illegal coercion," in which Assange is accused of having two women.

All this was supposedly committed during two days in August, when Assange was in Sweden with a working visit.

On December 7, 2010, he was arrested by the British police.

A journalist's lawyer said that these allegations were politically motivated and related to the "hunt" on Assange, "arranged by the US government."

On February 24, 2011, the Belmar Magistrates' Court of Great Britain approved the extradition of Assange to Sweden. This decision withdrew all appeals.

On June 19, 2012, Assange asked for a political asylum in Ecuador.

Soon it became known that he remains on the territory of the embassy until the decision of the authorities to grant or refuse to provide asylum.

As Assange violated the conditions for bail (he spent the night not in the approved place), the authorities of England declared their readiness to arrest him as soon as he left the embassy's walls.

On August 16, the authorities of Ecuador stated their agreement to provide Assange with a political asylum.

August 19, Assange for the first time in a long time spoke publicly from the balcony of the embassy. The British Foreign Ministry sent an official letter to the embassy of Ecuador with a proposal to continue the negotiations on the issue of Assange.

On April 21, 2017, it was reported that US authorities are planning to officially bring charges against the founder of the WikiLeaks organization, Julian Assange, and to obtain a warrant for his arrest.

Later, the Swedish prosecutor's office canceled Assange's arrest . However, the London police said Assange was still arrested after he left the embassy of Ecuador in the capital of Great Britain.

Canada helped Russia build a railroad bypassing Ukraine



The Canadian company Bombardier helped Russia build a railroad bypassing Ukraine. Her representative, Olivier Marsil, confirmed that Bombardier won a $8 million tender for the government of the Russian Federation.

As informs Censor.NET, this is reported by the Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail.

According to Marsil, the company sees no problems in taking part in this construction. "After all, the project is 100 percent located on the Russian territory, not the controversial territory of Ukraine. Besides, the road should help the civilian sector - to simplify the delivery of goods and passengers from Voronezh to Rostov," he said, noting that the anti-Russian sanctions company did not has broken

However, the Canadian edition emphasizes that Bombardier received significant support directly from the country's budget shortly before the successful Russian tender, which is why it would probably be worth refraining from bidding. As an argument, the words of the head of the Canadian Congress of Ukrainian Lobby, Paul Hroda, who insists that the company, which is actually funded by Canada's taxes and budget, took part in the activities of the country that "runs an aggressive war against Ukraine."

"The explicit participation of the company in the construction of the railway contradicts the declared Canadian government's foreign policy objectives to support the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine in the face of Russian aggression," said Grod.

Recall that the construction of a railroad bypassing Ukraine began in 2015. The Russian authorities promised to launch the road to full capacity already in 2016, but passenger transport started in December 2017.

Judge has forbidden to call "oligarchs" of Ukrainian employers Manafort during meetings

Judge for the ex-chairman of the election campaign, Donald Trump and former adviser to former President Viktor Yanukovych, Paul Manafort, called on the party's accusation not to use the word "oligarch" with respect to wealthy Ukrainians who paid a political technician for his work as a consultant.

Judge Thomas John Ellis pointed out that the word "oligarch" has an emotional color, is associated with "vile" people and emphasizes their "fault". In his opinion, this word does not correspond to the charges against Manaforth in bank fraud and non-payment of taxes.

"America is not doing so," said Justice Ellis.

As you know, during a Manafort trial in Virginia court, a prosecutor's witness - political adviser Ted Devin said that Ukrainian oligarch Rinat Akhmetov financed Manafort's cooperation with the Party of Regions and Viktor Yanukovych.

During a court hearing, Manawort's lawyer said that the American political technologist was receiving unregistered income, as it was a condition of his Ukrainian business partners .

According to investigators in Ukraine, Manafort co-operated with Viktor Yanukovych, oligarchs Rinat Akhmetov and Sergei Lvochkin, as well as other people close to the ex-president.

Paul Manafort is accused of corruption, financial malpractice, unregistered work for foreign governments, tax evasion and money laundering.

The investigation found that he received a significant part of his wealth on the results of his work on Viktor Yanukovych and the Party of Regions in the period from 2005 to 2014.

Earlier, the US Attorney General Müller said that Manafort earned more than $ 60 million in Ukraine.

On July 30th, it was reported that Manafort in 2014 cooperated with the now Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko.

The founder of ClearPath Strategies, David Bliston, told the Civic that Vitali Klitschko, the city mayor of Kyiv, worked with American political technologists in his company in 2014-2015 .

Earlier, investigators from the United States Special Prosecutor Robert Muller provided about 300 documents regarding the ex-chairman of Donald Trump Paul Manafort's election campaign, which reveal details of his cooperation with former President Viktor Yanukovych, the Party of Regions and the Opposition Bloc.

On June 15, the court in Washington decided to detain Donald Trump's ex-counselor Paul Manafort. The judge passed such a decision after the attorneys of Müller's special prosecutor, who also investigates Russia's interference in the US election, reported that Manafort was trying to intervene in the case of witnesses. Manafort in the United States is accused of money laundering, tax evasion and fraud.

In addition, the case in which Manafort appears is also being investigated in Ukraine. He is accused of having received more than $12 million from the Party of Regions from 2007 to 2009. US Attorney Müeller unveiled a list of 500 material evidence in Manafort's case.

On October 30, 2017, Paul Manaforth and his business partner, Rick Gates, have been charged with 12 points, including money laundering and secret collusion. Later they were taken under house arrest .

Ex-Polatechnologist Manafort is threatened with 305 years of imprisonment .

In total, according to documents, Manafort received more than $ 12 million from the Party of Regions from 2007 to 2009. It was also reported that the United States would investigate the possible involvement of Manafort in corruption schemes in Ukraine.

March 1, Manafort said he did not recognize the blame for Russia's interference in the US election. He appealed his house arrest, but the court did not satisfy his appeal. Later he was released from detention.

Turban and the Arab language killers do not remove the question of goal-setting and customers: for ordinary Muslim terror there is too complicated logistics, Not to mention the figure of Orhan Jemal as a victim. You can, of course, strain and search for complex versions, but not earlier than we will carefully look into the most obvious and simple: the murder of journalists ordered the beneficiary

The publicist believes that the main motive for the massacre with Jemal and his colleagues was two: to prevent the threat of an investigation, since mercenarism in Russia is a criminal offense, and a demonstration of the force, intimidation of other journalists who are interested in investigating cases related to PKK.

"Blood around Putin's friends and himself is becoming more and more. However, some (military) times have already killed thousands of souls - so what I am? Putin late drink" Borzhomi", and we are afraid too", - writes the resumes.
