"The investigation into the case of People's Deputy of Ukraine Nadia Savchenko and Ruban's citizen was completed. During this investigation, we received all the necessary evidence confirming the leading version of the preparation of a large-scale terrorist attack in the center of the Ukrainian capital by using weapons that were provided to instigators Savchenko and Ruban with the knowledge of Russian Officers in the position of Lieutenant Colonel and Colonel in the territory of the "Donetsk People's Republic" after consultations held by Savchenko and Zakharchenko (leader of the so-called "DNR" Alexander Zakharchenko - ed.)", - said Y.

The Attorney General noted that the next step is to get acquainted with the materials of the case.

"After the completion of this procedure, the case will be referred to the court. Given the number of evidence obtained, I believe that this year the court should begin and enter the active phase, and when it can make the final decision, I will not comment, as the trial is the exclusive competence of the judges, which will be assigned,"- he added.

According to the prosecutor general, lawyers and defendants in this case use all processes "as a tribune for their bleaching, and often for anti-government slanderous applications."

"What happened during the pre-trial investigation by Savchenko and Ruban and their defense suggests that the next process will be used to discredit the Ukrainian state," Yulia Lutsenko added.

Ruban may report an investigation into high-ranking officials from Russia involved in plans for destabilization in Ukraine: strands lead to higher leadership, - Lutsenko



Attorney General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko believes that, in the event of an agreement with the investigation, the head of the Center for the release of prisoners "Officers' Corps" Volodymyr Ruban may report high-ranking officials from the Russian Federation involved in plans for destabilization in Ukraine.

"At the moment, we can talk about the role of the actual leaders of the paramilitary units on whose territory Savchenko Ruban's duo received weapons and ammunition for preparing them for the terrorist attack. These names are known to us, the investigation in this part is also ongoing, but will these be the last highest figures of Russia - I can not say right now, this should be the answer to the investigation, and this is exactly where I see the possibility of concluding an agreement with Mr. Ruban, who obviously knows more about the plans of the Kremlin than Savchenko, "he said at a briefing at the training ground. CSO "Alpha" (shooting range " Koncha-Zaspa, Kyiv region) on Thursday, Censor.NET reports, referring to Interfax-Ukraine.

Y. Lutsenko also noted that if V. Ruban wants to be exchanged for Ukrainian prisoners of war, then such an opportunity will be available to him immediately after the completion of the trial. "If the court will support our evidence and make a legitimate decision, then, of course, condemned terrorists can theoretically be the subject of exchange. On whom, in what proportion, it is not exactly Ruban's decision, and certainly not his lawyer," he pointed out.

At the same time, according to him, N.Savchenko did not speak with similar initiatives to exchange himself for Ukrainian prisoners of war.

"It's not a ridiculous thing, it's not a political matter - it's a case of a terrorist act against the Ukrainian state..., a thread that leads to the supreme leadership of the Russian Federation," Yuriy Lutsenko told.

He stressed that the alleged "commanders of the military units, senior officers of the Russian armed forces, who loaded this deadly cargo for Savchenko-Ruban," was the basis for such a statement.

Y. Lutsenko also said that after the information was disclosed to him by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, "these persons were re-transferred to other places of service" as a reward.

"Moscow, as always trying to close the tracks, but the military prosecutor's office all clearly fixes and for everything will come the time of payment," - said Yuriy Lutsenko.

"Whatever they say, but in the years since the Revolution of Dignity, everything has been done in Ukraine a lot. People continue to complain about corruption, bureaucracy and raider attacks, but as KUTP and our members, we see many changes. Not all, of course , ideally, but the government should pay tribute to the successes achieved, "said the president of KUTP.

Take the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra, the Pochaev Lavra, for example, the ownership of the Ukrainian state. the state transferred its ownership to the use of the Ukrainian church of the Moscow Patriarchate, but when the Ukrainian church is recognized here, the Lavra, both one and the other, will be handed over to the Ukrainian church, because it is a Ukrainian shrine. It does not have these shrines, and those parishes that have built and their temples at their own expense, it is the property of these parishes, and not Russia. Therefore, Russia does not have its own church property, "he said.

Ukraine itself is guilty of its problems with joining the EU and NATO, the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs

on Thu Aug 02, 2018 4:13 pm
Ukraine itself is guilty of its problems with joining the EU and NATO, the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs



Ukraine can not make progress on accession to the EU and NATO at its fault, Hungary does not have this attitude, said the representative of the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Tamas Menzier.

This is reported by Censor.NET with reference to UNIAN.

According to Menzer, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who expressed doubts about the realities of Ukraine's aspirations to become a member of the EU and NATO, talked about the "actual state of affairs". The representative of the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in turn, referred to the Ukrainian law on education, which allegedly restricts the rights of national minorities in Ukraine.

He also noted that, despite the "outright attack on the Hungarian community", Hungary continues to apply a "fair approach" to Ukraine and recently donated several tonnes of chlorine to the Transcarpathian region to provide water supplies.

"We expect that Ukraine will give the national minorities the rights they have been deprived of, and will put an end to their disenfranchisement status," concluded Menzhere.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine expressed strong protest to Hungary in connection with the unfriendly Budapest moves towards Ukraine - the Government of Hungary decided to establish an authorized minister responsible for the development of the Transcarpathian region and a program for the development of kindergartens in the Carpathian Basin.

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 language norm of the law on education.

The US Senate approved the lifting of sanctions for arms purchasing by allies in Russia

The US Senate approved the lifting of sanctions for arms purchasing by allies in Russia



The US Senate voted in favor of changes to the current legislation, which allow the president not to add to the list of sanctions the US Allies, who buy weapons from Russian manufacturers.

This is reported by Censor.NET with reference to 112.

Eighty-eight senators voted for the law, against 10. As the document had previously been approved by the House of Representatives, it was only necessary to obtain the signature of US President Donald Trump for its entry into force.

The law was backed by US Secretary of Defense James Matthews. In his speech, he said that Russia "must pay for its aggressive, destabilizing behavior," but it should not hit the countries with which the United States establish ties.

Thus, confident in the Pentagon, the changes adopted will be useful for the US and its allies, but will not be beneficial for Russia.

Senator-Democrat Robert Menendez, for his part, expressed concern that the changes adopted would weaken US pressure on the Russian Federation.

President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin will begin to "rock" the situation in Ukraine since September this year.

This was stated by the military expert Oleksiy Arestovich in an interview with " Faktem".

"I do not really have a very optimistic outlook, since September everything will begin, people will come back from vacation - and how it will go." The situation is terrible: the Kremlin will actively swing the situation, especially the south, "he said.

According to Arrestovich, the hot points of destabilization can be Kherson, Berdyansk, Mariupol.

"We already see: there an activist - a fighter with separatists - was poured with acid, there ATOshniki kill Atoshnikov, in Kiev, a small conflict ends with shooting." The people have broken the chain. "There is a huge demand for violence in society," the expert said.

At the same time, he added that the battles on the Donbass will be continued, but pro-Russian politicians will come to the forefront on the eve of the election.

"The Kremlin will force the situation, accusing all" bloody junta ", saying:" Ukraine is not an enemy to us..."- he concluded.
