Putin hopes to negotiate with Trump all over Ukraine - the general

Putin hopes to negotiate with Trump all over Ukraine - the general

Ukraine needs to bring the attention of the United States and Britain to the problems of Crimea and Donbass, so that Russian President Vladimir Putin does not decide the fate of the captured regions behind Kiev.

This was stated in an interview with "Apostrophe" security expert, veteran of foreign intelligence, Lieutenant-General Vasily Bogdan.

"The soft attitude of the leaders of some states, first of all the United States, gives Putin a reason to hope that he will somehow be able to negotiate with Washington on Ukraine behind her, but no agreements about us can not be without us. I once wrote about the fact that Ukraine can become a hostage to the geopolitical elucidation of relations, namely, the Kremlin is acting: a chain aggression has seized Transnistria, Georgia, Crimea, Donbass, Syria, Putin is trying to bargain for each of these positions, "the expert says.

He notes that Russia tries to ignore Minsk-1, Minsk-2 and Normandy format.

"We see that a position is a categorical" no "settlement, only on their terms and using that" formula of Steinmeier. "It actually conserves the situation in the temporarily occupied territories - they will remain under the protectorate of Russia, or about any kind of reintegration into Ukraine of language to go will not be. It will be a constant concern, or, say, so much as in the back, which is constantly twisting from side to side,"- said the general.

He expressed the opinion that in order to implement the Minsk agreements, it is necessary to intensify the connection of the United States and Britain as guarantors who at one time signed the Budapest memorandum.

"One of the guarantors of our sovereignty violated our territorial integrity, occupied the Crimea and part of the Donbas. If London and Washington were fully engaged in settling Russian aggression against Ukraine, then, in my opinion, there are optimistic expectations regarding the concessions of the Putin regime," Bogdan said.

He also called the division "at a certain stage of our problems with the Russian Federation the issue of Crimea and Donbass".

"They need to be united, and we must demand that the aggressor return all occupied territories, all of which should take place within the framework of international law and, most importantly, a bilateral treaty on friendship and cooperation between Ukraine and Russia. Now this sounds ironic, but it is still valid"- he concluded.

He reminded that in January 2007, China, using a ground-based missile, destroyed its own meteorological satellite to demonstrate to the United States its capabilities. Mettis noted that the creation of the Space Forces is a response to growing threats from other countries.

Recall, in June, US President Donald Trump ordered the Pentagon to create Space Forces as a full-fledged AP of the country. The head of the White House has repeatedly expressed the idea of ​​forming such forces. Speaking in March in front of marines in Miramar, California, he emphasized that "the new US space strategy has recognized the cosmos as a zone of hostilities such as land, air and sea."

Russia did not expect a serious Western response to its actions in Ukraine, Volker

on Wed Aug 15, 2018 12:04 pm
Russia did not expect a serious Western response to its actions in Ukraine, Volker



Kurt Volker stated that the policy of deterring Russia from Western countries with sanctions was unexpected for the Kremlin.

As Censor.NET informs, the Special Representative of the United States Department of State for Ukraine said during a discussion organized by the " Voice of America", which was devoted to the tenth anniversary of the Russian-Georgian war.

"Putin was expecting that the Western reaction to his actions in Ukraine would be negligible. In the case of the Crimea, he was right - there was no significant reaction. There were certain sanctions, but they did not have much power. Only when the Russian occupation touched Eastern Ukraine - the West had gone further and began to operate. The attitude of many Western European countries towards Russia has also changed, "said Kurt Volker.

In his view, Western countries realized that they could no longer ignore Russian aggression and should oppose it.

"Such a policy lasts for more than four years, and I think it was unexpected for Russia. Sanctions had a deterrent effect," adds the special representative of the United States.

According to Volcker, Russia begins to understand that it is impossible to be an empire and to have good relations with its neighbors at the same time.

"The Georgian lesson (2008 war - Ed.), Which affected the war in Ukraine: Russia felt that it could do it - to use military forces in another's territory, to interfere in the management of other countries," Volker said. In his view, the West should change this lesson to Moscow.

"If Russia occupies the Ukrainian territory and annexes the Crimea, then we have to say:" No, it does not work, you will not succeed. The result will be sanctions, isolation from the United States and the European Union. This will affect Russian interests. You simply can not continue to do this. "Then we need to find a solution to how Russia can come to peace and understanding with an independent Ukraine, to resolve the conflict," says Volker.

Earlier, Volker stated that the Ukrainian government should be active to be heard in the Donbas.

"The Ukrainian government has to do everything it can to hear the population in the Donbas. People living there are incredibly affected by many problems from water supply and electricity supply interruptions, switching off mobile networks, restricting freedom of movement, physical hazards and illnesses," he said. - says Volker.

He stresses that the residents of Donbass need the maximum support from the Ukrainian government. "He (the government - Ed.) Must be as active as possible to show this support," adds the special representative of the State Department.

Volker says that the Ukrainian government still needs to go a long way in transforming Ukraine into a "successful and prosperous democracy". However, in his opinion, much has been done in four years.

Turkish President signed a decree on increasing customs duties on US goods

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan signed a decree to increase import duties on passenger cars, alcohol and tobacco from the United States.

This is reported by the official government edition of Turkey's Resmi Gazete.

The decree increased tariffs for import of cars into the country by 120%, alcoholic beverages by 140% and leaf tobacco by 60%.

In addition, new duties relate to the importation of cosmetics, rice and coal from the USA into Turkey.

Information on the signing of the decree was confirmed by Vice-President of Turkey Fuat Oktay on Twitter.

In particular, he specified that such measures were introduced in connection with the "attacks by American authorities on the Turkish economy."

On the eve of Erdogan announced a boycott of electronics from the United States.

Earlier, Erdogan called on the US authorities to change their attitude towards Turkey , threatening to seek new allies.

US President Donald Trump has announced that the United States will cut tariffs on Turkish steel and aluminum against the backdrop of worsening diplomatic relations with Ankara.

Prior to this, the US Treasury Department imposed sanctions against two Turkish ministers due to their involvement in the prosecution of American pastor Andrew Branson, detained in 2016.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey would not change its position on the arrest of an American pastor.

US President Donald Trump said the United States would impose "big sanctions" against Turkey because of the holding of Ankara by American pastor Andrew Branson, accused of terrorism and espionage.

Branson has been working in Turkey for more than 20 years. He was detained in 2016 and accused of terrorism and espionage. Ankara claims that Branson allegedly assisted the groups that were behind the organization of the military coup in Truvia in July 2016.

On July 25, 2018, Branson was taken under house arrest. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that Turkey should release him and release him to his homeland.
