The Russian Embassy called the "draconian" new US sanctions

on Thu Aug 09, 2018 12:46 pm
The Russian Embassy called the "draconian" new US sanctions

The Russian embassy in the United States commented on new sanctions imposed by the United States, which will be introduced through the poisoning of Russian intelligence former Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the UK. The department called the sanctions "draconian", and the reasons for their introduction "fake".

This is stated in the statement of the embassy.

"On August 8, our newly-advised ambassador to the State Department received new draconian sanctions under the false premise of using the government of the Russian Federation of neuro-paralytic substance" Novicher "against the British citizen of the Violinist and his daughter. Any facts or evidence, as has already happened, did not sound, "- said at the embassy.

Russian diplomats said the US side, referring to confidentiality, refused to provide explanations for clarification questions, and called for "publishing correspondence" on the poisoning of the Violinists.

On August 8, it became known that the United States would impose new sanctions against Russia on August 22 because of the poisoning in Great Britain of the former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skrypka and his daughter Julia.

Earlier, The Guardian reported that Britain was ready to sue Moscow for the extradition of two Russians suspected of being poisoned by Novice.

In March 2018, a 66-year-old citizen of Russia, a former intelligence officer, Sergei Skryppal, went to a hospital with severe poisoning. With him was his daughter Julia.

The British investigation believes that the poisoning of the former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal could not be carried out without the approval of the Kremlin.

British Prime Minister Teresa May announced that Russia is likely to be involved in the poisoning of the Violinist, and the crime was committed with the help of the paramilitary paralysis of the "Novice" class developed in the Russian Federation.

In April, international experts from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons confirmed the findings of Britain that the former intelligence officer of Russia Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned with neuro-paralytic substance.

Sergei Skripal, Colonel of Military Intelligence of Russia on retirement in 2006, was sentenced to 13 years in prison for espionage in favor of Britain. He was found guilty of transmitting to the Secret Intelligence of Britain evidence of Russian agents who worked under cover in the EU.

The former intelligence officer was fired in an exchange between the United States and Russia in 2010. He was pardoned by then Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. Soon, Violin became a political refuge in the UK.

The Russian Foreign Ministry promises to "mirror" to respond to new US sanctions

on Thu Aug 09, 2018 12:55 pm
The Russian Foreign Ministry promises to "mirror" to respond to new US sanctions

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has promised "mirrorly" to respond to new US sanctions imposed by the poisoning of the former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Julia, in the UK.

This was during the briefing told spokeswoman Maria Zakharova Russian Foreign Ministry.

She stressed that there is currently no evidence of involvement of the Russian government or special services in the poisoning of Violinist and his daughter.

"Unfortunately, we have to act adequately. This can be called mirror, symmetrically, as you like, "Zakharova said.

She reminded that the same symmetric sanctions Moscow had previously imposed against Great Britain, which deported Russian diplomats through the poisoning of the Violinists.

Also, the spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs quoted the Russian embassy in the United States, calling the new US sanctions "draconian".

Recall August 8 US State Department announced the introduction of new sanctions against Russia .

New sanctions are divided into two parts.

The first includes a ban on the sale of some types of goods, such as electronic devices, but these restrictive measures significantly overlap with those introduced earlier.

The second part will be introduced if, in the 90-day period, Russia does not agree to stop the use of chemical weapons and will not allow UN observers to conduct inspections.

The second part of the sanctions provides for more serious restrictions on trade with Russia, and may also include a ban on the implementation of Aeroflot flights to the United States.

In March 2018, a 66-year-old citizen of Russia, a former intelligence officer, Sergei Skryppal, went to a hospital with severe poisoning. With him was his daughter Julia.

The British investigation believes that the poisoning of the former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal could not be carried out without the approval of the Kremlin.

British Prime Minister Teresa May announced that Russia is likely to be involved in the poisoning of the Violinist, and the crime was committed with the help of the paramilitary paralysis of the "Novice" class developed in the Russian Federation.

In April, international experts from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons confirmed the findings of Britain that the former intelligence officer of Russia Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned with neuro-paralytic substance.

Sergei Skripal, Colonel of Military Intelligence of Russia on retirement in 2006, was sentenced to 13 years in prison for espionage in favor of Britain. He was found guilty of transmitting to the Secret Intelligence of Britain evidence of Russian agents who worked under cover in the EU.

The former intelligence officer was fired in an exchange between the United States and Russia in 2010. He was pardoned by then Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. Soon, Violin became a political refuge in the UK.

On July 4, it became known that two people were hospitalized near Salisbury due to poisoning with an unknown substance. The woman and her husband were sent to a hospital in Salisbury, in severe condition.

The incident occurred on the evening of June 30 on Muggle Street - the victims were found unidentified on the street.

The British counterterrorist unit said that the man and woman were poisoned with the "Novice" matter. At the same time, the country does not consider the second case of poisoning as a "Novice" attack.

In the evening of July 8, a woman who had previously been hospitalized with severe poisoning near the British city of Salisbury, a 44-year-old Don Sturges , died at a British hospital .

On July 10, a man who got into a hospital after poisoning with a neuro-paralytic substance "Novice" near Salisbury, came to life.

The second US sanctions block against Russia may involve a reduction in the level of diplomatic relations, the State Department

on Thu Aug 09, 2018 1:01 pm
The second US sanctions block against Russia may involve a reduction in the level of diplomatic relations, the State Department

The second block of US sanctions against Russia related to the poisoning of the ex-employee of the GRU, Serhiy Skripal, in the British city of Salisbury, may affect diplomatic relations between Washington and Moscow, a senior US State Department spokesman said Thursday.

Reported Cenzor.NET with reference to Interfax-Ukraine.

The second stage of the US sanctions against Russia "could provide for a reduction in the level of diplomatic relations or their termination," said the representative of the State Department during a telephone briefing.

He noted that, in addition to terminating diplomatic relations, the second block of sanctions could include "measures such as prohibitions on imports and exports (...), as well as various kinds of restrictions in the field of air transportation."

In addition, the State Department spokesman said that if the second bloc of sanctions is introduced, "the US will use its influence to resist Russia's financial assistance by any international financial institution," and may also impose a ban on loans from US banks.

Recall that tonight it became known that the United States from August 22 will introduce new sanctions against Russia because of an incident involving the use of chemical weapons in the British Salisbury. It will be about a ban on exports of goods that may be related to national security.

If, within three months, Moscow will not provide guarantees that it will not use chemical weapons, and will not allow international inspectors to allow their chemical weapons production companies, then Russia will have a second round of sanctions. In particular, it provides for a ban on flights by Aeroflot in the United States, a reduction in the level of diplomatic relations, almost complete cessation of American exports (excluding food) and the import of Russian goods by the United States.

The United States sent a formidable "hello" to Putin to Europe: details

The F-22 US Air Force fighter squadron arrived in Germany to contain "regional aggression."

This is stated in a statement published on the official website of the United States Air Forces in Europe.

"The US Air Force has been stationed at the airbase in Spangdale, Germany, one squadron of F-22 Raptors, military pilots and related equipment for conducting air drills with other aircraft located in Europe," the statement said.

Fighters arriving at the airbase on August 8 will be there for several weeks within the framework of the exercises, which are part of the European containment initiative.

Aircraft are assigned to the 95th fighter squadron of the 325th Fighting Wing at the Tyndall Airbase in Florida. The fighters will use the Shpangdahl base as a base, but for training with NATO allies will roll over to other parts of Europe.

The fifth-generation F-22 Raptor multipurpose fighter was created by Boeing and Lockheed Martin and adopted by the US Air Force in 2005. As noted in the message, this fifth generation fighter has a unique combination of unobtrusiveness, speed, situational flexibility and the ability to strike both air and land targets at distant distances.

EU country "declared priests of the Russian Orthodox Church to spy Putin

on Thu Aug 09, 2018 1:26 pm
EU country "declared priests of the Russian Orthodox Church to spy Putin

In Greece, because of the conflict between the Russian Orthodox Church and the Constantinople Patriarchate on the issue of autocephaly of the Ukrainian Church , they began to refuse or only partially satisfy the requests of the priests of the Russian Orthodox Church in obtaining Schengen visas.

This is with reference to sources reported by the BBC.

In particular, Krasnodar priest Vasil Pliska said that he had applied to the Greek Consulate for a multivisa for a trip to Athos, but received a short-stay visa for 45 days.

"This decision of the Greek government was given for two or three years, and now they were given for 45 days. This is not one case, it is given to all priests," he said.

A source close to Constantinople said that this is a new policy of the Greek government.

"Now priests of the ROC are perceived as potential spies and agents of influence," - he explained.

Sources in the Russian Orthodox Church and Constantinople reported that visa issues with Russian priests were related to the process of granting independence to the Ukrainian church.

"The Patriarchate of Constantinople is struggling with the Russian Church for its influence in the Orthodox world," a source in the Russian Orthodox Church explained. Another interlocutor of the publication said that the Moscow and Constantinople Patriarchs are now "sharp relations across Ukraine."

The Patriarchate of Constantinople is closely linked to the Greek Church, and monasteries on Mount Athos are directly subordinate to the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

The source, close to Constantinople, said that the clergy of the Constantinople Patriarchate receive salaries from the budget of the Greek Church. Now the Russian Orthodox Church is trying to prevent Ukraine from obtaining autocephaly as much as possible, threatening a great split, similar to the split in 1054, when Christians were divided into Catholics and Orthodox Christians.

"Rusal" Deripaska is preparing to conserve plants through US sanctions

on Thu Aug 09, 2018 1:31 pm
"Rusal" Deripaska is preparing to conserve plants through US sanctions



The Russian aluminum company Rusal, the main owner of which is billionaire Oleg Deripaska, will be forced to stop production at its plants if the sanctions imposed by the United States will not be lifted soon.

This is with reference to a number of Russian media reported by RosBalt, reports Censor.NET.

"On August 6, the company, the world's largest aluminum producer outside China, began to conserve electrolysis capacities at the Nadvoykysky Aluminum Plant, a city-forming enterprise located in the Karelia Republic with a population of just over 7,000 people. The plant operated exclusively on the US market, and after sanctions it was lost as sales, and stable supply of raw materials, "notes Finanz.

The fate of NAZ in the near future can split some more factories Rusal, which produce products for other foreign markets, warned a source close to the company. According to him, the situation in the industry "is much worse than analysts see. If the sanctions are not removed in the near future, the contracts will end, and from October 1, all products intended for foreign consumers, will go back to the warehouse, despite the fact that there still remains part of the unrealized aluminum in April."

According to another employee of Rusal, "the production of alloys and value added products for foreign consumers may be stopped since September."

The publication notes that Deripaska hoped for the lifting of sanctions in August. But the package of proposals addressed to the US Department of the Bank was rejected, and the talks went into a dead end.

According to Bloomberg, the billionaire was ready to reduce to less than 50% of the holding in En +, through which controls their key assets, and to transfer most of the seats on the board of directors to independent members. He considered the reciprocal conditions put forward by Washington unacceptable, bonded, and uneconomical. If negotiations with the American authorities fail, Deripaska is considering selling his shares of Rusal to Chinese investors. Another option - is the nationalization of the company or its transition under the control of one of the Russian state-owned banks.

Recall that tonight it became known that the United States from August 22 will introduce new sanctions against Russia because of an incident involving the use of chemical weapons in the British Salisbury. It will be about a ban on exports of goods that may be related to national security.

If, within three months, Moscow will not provide guarantees that it will not use chemical weapons, and will not allow international inspectors to allow their chemical weapons production companies, then Russia will have a second round of sanctions. In particular, it provides for a ban on flights by Aeroflot in the United States, a reduction in the level of diplomatic relations, almost complete cessation of American exports (excluding food) and the import of Russian goods by the United States.

ROC priests have been refused visas to Greece due to the conflict between Moscow and Bartholomew on the issue of Ukrainian autocephalyd

on Thu Aug 09, 2018 1:54 pm
ROC priests have been refused visas to Greece due to the conflict between Moscow and Bartholomew on the issue of Ukrainian autocephaly



Several priests of the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) complained about the problems with obtaining Schengen visas through the Greek Consulate, which is connected with the conflict between the ROC and the Patriarchate of Constantinople because of the issue of granting autocephaly to the Ukrainian church.

This is what the BBC writes  with reference to the sources, reports Censor.NET.

The fact that the priests of the Russian Orthodox Church have problems obtaining Greek visas has become known this week.

The rector of the church of Sergius Radonezhsky in Moscow Victor Bixei told RIA Novosti and RBC that he wanted to go to Athens with his family, but he refused a Schengen visa with the wording "there are no grounds for staying in Greece."

"We had a tour, paid tickets, a hotel booked, my mother (wife) and six children were given a visa, and I did not." I was served twice, both times - a refusal, the last time was a week and a half ago, "Bixei told the Air Force.

At the end of July, they refused a visa to another Moscow ass, deputy head of the church department for charity and social service, Alexander Aleshin. He told the Air Force that he had been in Greece many times and never received visa refusals.

According to Aleshin, he heard from other priests that Russian clergymen may refuse to visit Athos, so he was about to go to "other shrines" with his mother.

"My mother and I bought tickets, paid hotel and tickets in July, I honestly indicated in the questionnaire, working in the synodal department, gave a certificate of income. Mom gave a visa and I was refused in late July. I was impressed with such discrimination," - said priest.

Krasnodar priest Vasyl Pliska told RBC, who requested a Greek consulate for a multiple entry visa, but received a short-term visa for 45 days. Pliska told the Air Force that he wanted to go to Athos. "This decision of the Greek government was given earlier by 2-3 years, and now it was given for 45 days. This is not one case, it is given to all priests," he told the Air Force.

A church publicist, priest Volodymyr Vigilyansky, wrote on this page in the beginning of August about such a problem. According to him, in May he and his wife applied for a three-year Schengen visa through the Greek Consulate.

"On May 25 we received a passport with visas at the visa center - they were given to my wife for three years, and to me - only a month. I asked the girl who issued us passports, why?" The girl replied: "You wrote in vain that you were a priest. If they wrote that a pensioner, then they would give three years, "- he said.

A representative of the Greek Consulate in Moscow refused to answer the BBC's questions.

"This is a policy of the Greek government, and now the priests of the Russian Orthodox Church are seen as potential spies and agents of influence," said a source close to Constantinople.

"The Patriarchate of Constantinople is struggling with the Russian Church for its influence in the Orthodox world," the source said in the Russian Orthodox Church. The Moscow and Constantinople Patriarchs now have "sharp relations through Ukraine," a source close to the Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church told.

The Patriarchate of Constantinople is closely linked with the Greek (Hellas) Church. First, in Greece is the holy Mount Athos, subordinated to Constantinople. Athos is an important place of pilgrimage, where Russian deputies, businessmen and politicians love to travel.

Secondly, the clergy of the Constantinople Patriarchate receives salaries from the budget of the Greek Church, said a source close to Constantinople.

As it was reported earlier, on September 1-3 in Synod will take place Syntax - the meeting of all the supreme bishops of the Constantinople Orthodox Church, headed by the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew. Experts in church circles believe that the meeting will raise the issue of autocephaly of the Ukrainian, as well as Macedonian church. In this regard, the sharp reaction of the representatives of the Serbian and Moscow churches is expected, respectively.

On September 10 in Constantinople, another council was appointed, in which the issue of tomos for the Ukrainian church can be formalized already legally. In July, the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew confirmed his intention to donate autocephaly to the Ukrainian Church.

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 met with the primate of the Orthodox churches of Ukraine and officially accepted the transfer to the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Appeal to give the Ukrainian church the tomos of 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.

A member of the Russian group Pussy Riot Maria Alekhina, despite the ban to leave the territory of Russia, traveled to the United Kingdom.

This is stated in a message in the Twitter group.

"Despite the official ban to leave Russia, Maria Alyochina has found a way and she is flying to Edinburgh just now," - said in the Pussy Riot.

How exactly Alohin was able to leave the country - is not specified.

In Britain, the tours to Alohina are scheduled.

August 8, Alohin was not released from Russia , when she was going to board a plane at the Moscow airport Domodedovo. She is forbidden to leave the Russian Federation, because she has not been punished in the form of public works, which she was appointed due to participation in protest actions.

Recall that four members of the Pussy Riot group, dressed in a police uniform, ran out of the field during the final match of the FIFA World Cup.

They demanded that the Russian authorities: release all political prisoners; do not sit for laughs; to stop illegal arrests at rallies; to allow political competition in the country; as well as not to fabricate criminal cases and not to keep people without reasons in the SIZO.

Sentsov is already experiencing the third time in a state of health crisis starvation



Ukrainian political prisoner in the Russian Federation Oleg Sentsov, who declared hunger strike in the Russian colony, is experiencing a third health crisis.

As reported by Censor.NET, the words of the lawyer on his page in Facebook was handed by journalist Anton Naumluuk.

"If the public statement of Dmitry Peskov means the beginning of the pardon procedure on the basis of a letter from Oleg Sentsov's mother, it will take from two weeks to a month so that the commission gives a conclusion and recommendations to the president about the pardon of the Ukrainian director," the journalist said.

"The required set of acts according to the law" consists of the creation of a commission, which should receive a conclusion from the colony on the physical condition of the prisoner and his behavior. Approximately the same thing happens when deciding on a DD (conditional release - Ed.). It is necessary to get a psychological conclusion, a conclusion from the leadership of the colony, whether there are any complaints or encouragements during the time of serving the sentence. As a result, it is concluded whether it is a public danger and whether it can be pardoned. The recommendations are being considered by the president and the decision is made", - told lawyer Dmitry Dinze, emphasizing that the Ukrainian director does not intend to stop the hunger strike and now is going through a protracted third already during the hunger crisis of a health state

Sentsov is in the Russian colony "White Bear" along the Arctic Circle in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.

As you know, Oleg Sentsov, Oleksandr Kolchenko, Gennady Afanasyev and Oleksiy Chirnia were detained in the occupied Crimea on May 10, 2014. In August 2015, the North Caucasus District Military Court in Rostov-on-Don sentenced Oleg Sentsov to 20 years of a strict regime colony on charges of alleged terrorist organization on the territory of the peninsula.

On May 16, 2018, the lawyer Sentsov said that his client May 14 declared an endless hunger strike. Thus, Sentsov demands the release of all Ukrainian political prisoners who are in Russian prisons.
