The US planned to destroy Moscow with a nuclear strike: details of the scandalous plan

The US planned to destroy Moscow with a nuclear strike: details of the scandalous plan

The United States in 1945 was preparing a plan for a nuclear attack on the USSR. Moscow and then Leningrad were supposedly to fly for six atomic bombs.

Such data was disclosed by Daniel Ellsberg - the legendary revealer who published in 1971 "Pentagon documents." Now preparing for the release of his book "The Machine of the Day of Judgment: Revelation of the developer of the plan of nuclear war". Excerpts from her published " Lenta.ru".

"On August 30, 1945, just two weeks after the capitulation of Japan, Major General Loris Norstad, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Air Force Planning Department, sent a document to General Groves, in which 15" key Soviet cities "were headed by the authorities for the purpose of a possible future nuclear strike. Moscow and 20 "big Soviet cities", including Leningrad, and also the number of atomic bombs needed to destroy each of them. "Six bombs were designated for Moscow and Leningrad," the book says.

It is noted that in the United States at that time there were six atomic bombs.

"At the end of the year, they had only two. So, by June 30, 1946 (the end of the fiscal year), there were nine bombs in the arsenal.

The first official plan of the war against the Soviet Union, dated November 1947, provided for the strike of 24 Soviet cities using 34 bombs.

However, at that time in the US arsenal there were only 13 bombs, of which, apparently, only seven were in combat readiness. This information was super-secret,"- writes the revealer.

As reported by the "Apostrophe", Russia, the United States and China may accidentally arrange a nuclear war.

Advisor to Trump Bolton on alleged "cyber attacks" in the United States in case of election interference

on Mon Aug 20, 2018 11:37 am
Advisor to Trump Bolton on alleged "cyber attacks" in the United States in case of election interference



The US administration does not rule out both "defensive" and "offensive" cyber attacks to protect the "wholeness of the electoral process."

According to Cenzor.NET, referring to the League, a spokeswoman for the US National Security Advisor John Bolton in an interview with the ABC channel said.

According to him, the question of interference with the electoral process is not simply connected with "Russians".

He noted that, two weeks before the interview, he held a meeting with the leaders of the four departments, which discussed possible measures.

Bolton stressed that "there are many things we do, about which we can not speak specifically".

Answering a question about what might be offensive cyber-attacks, Bolton said it was "secret information."

"We want peace in cyberspace, and in order to do this, I think we need to create deterrence structures so that our opponents who have cyber oppression against us or who just watched them understand that they will pay a much higher price if they do it, than if they simply abstained, "Bolton emphasized.

Recall that on July 23, 2018, the National Security Agency (NSA - Ed.) Created a working group to counter Russian threats in cyberspace.

This is reported by "RBC", referring to data sources close to the Kremlin and the leadership of self-proclaimed republics.

The initiative to transfer the election has been put forward by public organizations, but the decision has already been agreed with Moscow, the publication writes.

The source in the Kremlin confirms that the decision to postpone the election was taken on a combination of various factors. Among them are the prospects for new sanctions of the event, the lack of direct need for change in leadership of LDPR and risks for Minsk negotiations.

Leaders of the so-called "LDPR" will officially announce information about the abolition of elections soon.

Political expert estimates the transfer of elections in the occupied territories as a positive signal.

The head of the Ukrainian Center for Applied Political Studies Volodymyr Fesenko asserted that the elections on the Donbas could affect the escalation of the conflict.

"It is expedient to hold elections when they solve problems, but not create them," - said Alexey Chesnakov, director of the Center for Political Circle.

As reported by the "Apostrophe", in the raid of the so-called "DPR" Alexander Zakharchenko said that "elections" for the post of head of the "republic" will be held in the fall.

Terrorists prepare a bloody provocation on Independence Day: named signs

The events of last week and the sharp increase in the activity of the Russian-occupying forces directly testify that the militants intend to arrange a local bloody provocation on Independence Day in Ukraine.

According to military expert Mikhail Zhirokhov, the newspaper "Business Capital" reports.

"The steady increase in the number of shelling of the positions of our grouping in the Donbass, at the end of the week, went already and Gradi. All this led to an increase in losses - so, only four fighters died from August 14 to 18. The geography is still the same - Popasnyansky district of Luhansk the region and the city of Mariupol", - emphasizes the expert.

He also noted an increase in military assistance to militants, which was also noted by the OSCE.

"... even the OSS became involved in the reporting of" suspicious carcasses of military trucks. "And even beyond the main motorways, they are strange. What is moving there is completely unclear: weapons and ammunition have long come to the railway station at Ilovajsk station," says Zhirokhov.

According to him, against the backdrop of these militants increased pressure on Europeans: it is forbidden to move freely, knocking down their unmanned aircraft regularly, even went to direct threats of physical abuse directly on the checkpoints.

Another important marker of possible exacerbation of the expert considers the next large-scale gathering of reservists in the occupied territory of the Donetsk region, scheduled for the 20th of August.

"Of course, here, of course, everything can end with a huge strike, as it was the last time, when all the men who could catch on the streets, gathered the crowd on Saur-Mohyla, held a light day and dissolved, and could arm and create the appearance of the army and popular support regime", - summed up Zhirokhov.

An embassy in the United States was shot in Ankara, Turkey. No one was hurt

No one was hurt in Ankara by a United States embassy security cabin.

This was reported by Associated Press.

The shelling was driven by a white car passing through, the police were looking for the car.

The spokesman for the American Embassy David Gaynner thanked the law enforcement officers for a "quick reaction" and stressed that nobody was hurt.

The US diplomatic mission in Ankara does not work this week, as the Muslim holiday of Kurban Bayram is celebrated in Turkey.

The Associated Press notes that this incident occurred against the backdrop of tensions between the United States and Turkey, as the United States imposed duties on steel and aluminum, while Ankara holds American pastor Andrew Branson, which, according to the United States, is unlawful.

American pastor 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 helped the groups that were behind the organization of the military coup in Turkey 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.

On August 15, the court in Turkey  refused to let Brunson  out of house arrest.

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

Following the persecution of Branson, the United States imposed sanctions against two Turkish ministers in early August  . This is the first case in history when senior NATO officials arrived under Washington sanctions.

A few days later, US President Donald Trump   raised duties on Turkish steel and aluminum . Against the backdrop of deteriorating relations with the US, the course of the Turkish lira has fallen by 25% in a few days.

For his part, Erdogan called on the US authorities to  change their attitude towards Turkey , threatening to seek new allies. He announced a  boycott of electronics from the United States  and signed a  decree on duty increases  for US goods.

"Millions of Americans are dreaming of moving to Russia, but the housing problem has not yet been resolved," a group of residents of Russia demands from the country's leadership to simplify the reception of "refugees" from the United States

"Millions of Americans are dreaming of moving to Russia, but the housing problem has not yet been resolved," a group of residents of Russia demands from the country's leadership to simplify the reception of "refugees" from the United States

The network has a video on which a group of elderly women from the Krasnodar Territory of Russia at the meeting decides to appeal to the leadership of Russia with a request to facilitate the relocation of "American refugees" to PMF to Russia.

According to Censor.NET, the meeting is chaired by a man who spoke about some kind of Roindou Carter, who wants to move to Russia with Oklahoma with three children.

He says that the American stops only the unsolved housing issue.

"People are running, Roinda Carter is specific. And I think millions of Americans are ready to move to us." If Americans want to move to Russia, perhaps we should ask our leadership, our government to adopt some relevant laws to facilitate the lives of these displaced people. And look at them, it will be useful. "The American settlers in Russia need to give a broad road, why they should suffer from oppression," says a man and suggests addressing the leadership of the Russian Federation with a letter.

Everyone present at the meeting unanimously supported the request to help "American refugees", and some expressed their desire to give them shelter in their homes.

Scientists in Harvard deciphered the main myth of the Kremlin's propaganda about the Holodomor

on Mon Aug 20, 2018 1:08 pm
Scientists in Harvard deciphered the main myth of the Kremlin's propaganda about the Holodomor



From the Holodomor of 1932-1933, not the southern regions have suffered the most, as historians believe, and the center of Ukraine.

Ukrainian researchers from the University of Harvard, who conducted a unique investigation within the framework of the "MAPA Digital Atlas of Ukraine" project, came to this conclusion, writes Voice Of America

"We did not believe our eyes when we realized that the most severe hunger, the largest number of those killed during the Holodomorade was in the territory of the present-day Kyiv, Poltava and Cherkasy regions, before there was a perception that the majority suffered in the south of Ukraine, because the south was a traditional region, where the droughts and so on lasted repeatedly, and this was superimposed, and the famine of 1932-1933 does not apply to the same map, which is superimposed on other bottoms, it was artificial, "says director of the Ukrainian Research Institute at Harvard, Professor Sergei Plhiy.

The demographer Natalia Levchenko, who also worked on the project, says that during the work the researchers realized that the roots of hunger should be sought in 1931.

"We conducted such a study for the 391 districts that existed within the then Ukrainian division.The preliminary results show that there was a complicated dynamics between grain procurement and collectivization at the regional and district levels, and it is not necessary to start from 1932-1933, and from 1930-1931 The year when in 1931 there were raised higher grain supplies in those areas that did not play a key role in collecting grain, "she explains.

Investigating the death of the population in the context of nationalities, scientists realized that the greatest human losses due to the Holodomor experienced Ukrainians themselves.

"The ethnic group of Ukrainians has at least twice the rate of loss at least twice as high as all the others, first of all, they are Ukrainians, then Poles, then Russians, Germans and Jews, but Ukrainians are much ahead of everyone else," says Levchenko.

As is known, Russian propaganda claims that the Holodomor of 1932-1933 was not aimed at the extermination of Ukrainians as an ethnic group.

Porn site will pay its visitors for watching "adult" video

on Mon Aug 20, 2018 1:31 pm
Porn site will pay its visitors for watching "adult" video

Subsidiary PornHub, the Tube8 website, wants to "reward" its visitors. True, not in dollars, but in the cry of currency

About this the edition of Metro writes.

"I remember that the dream of getting money for watching porn always seemed impracticable - they always dreamed about it, but they never understood it completely. Now, however, with the introduction of the platform from Vice Industry Token, we can mark the change in the paradigm in the consumption of people of adult entertainment"- says Robin Turner, representative of Tube8.

According to him, earning local currency will be possible for video viewing, content evaluation and commentary. And if users used to open the site, watch some videos and go, now Vice Industry Token encourages account registration and content interaction to generate tokens.

True, earning a view on porn is hardly possible: although the prices for viewing are still not known, but 1 token, which offer for "reward" is currently worth about 35 Ukrainian cents.

Tube8 is visited 150 million times a month by 10 million registered users. The project will be launched by the end of 2018.

-Recall, American scientists have shown that sex before and after training does not affect its effectiveness.

-American researchers Samuel Perry and Andrew Whitehead came to the conclusion that viewing porno negatively affects the sexual life of religious men.

-Recently, a porn movie with actress Gale Gadot, known for her role as the Divo-Woman, appeared on the net, where she allegedly had sex with her half-brother.

-The Californian company Realbotix is ​​going to start selling sex robots with the advanced functionality this year.

Published in the "Manafort case", information can give a boost to launch criminal proceedings against officials in Ukraine

on Mon Aug 20, 2018 8:31 pm
Published in the "Manafort case", information can give a boost to launch criminal proceedings against officials in Ukraine

The trial of Paul Manafort in the United States revealed suspicions about his political allies in Ukraine, where he received millions for the work of the political technologist.

This is stated in the article Politico, reports Censor.NET with reference to UNIAN.

"The Ukrainian government will try to ignore everything. Manafort is a person close to President Trump and he can still sympathize with. Government officials are afraid of losing support for Trump or provoking an unwelcome conflict with the administration in the United States," said Olena, Director of the New Europe Center Hetmanchuk.

Some political and anti-corruption activists are convinced that the new information disclosed in the case against Manafort regarding its tax and bank fraud should give impetus to a new criminal proceeding in Ukraine. In particular against officials and oligarchs who generously covered Manafort in cash.

The publication writes that the Ukrainians were impressed by the American trial, having learned that former pro-Russian president Viktor Yanukovych and his party paid him more than $60 million in undeclared income, which went through a complex scheme of offshore and counterfeit companies. It also turned out that one of Manafort's companies had worked short on the campaign of Petro Poroshenko, which could potentially link the current president of the country with the dark affairs of the American political technologist. And all this is just before the election, on which Poroshenko seeks to win the second term.

However, activists still do not expect the revelations to turn into any real proceedings, given the strength of the oligarchs in Ukraine. In addition, nobody from the rich and officials was told any suspicions because of the mere fact that digging under Manaforth could result in a political blow in response to Trump who would not like the new headlines about the ex-head of his electoral headquarters.

Politico also noticed the uncertainty among the Ukrainian authorities about who should initiate such an investigation. Ukraine can not afford a gap in relations with the United States. The pro-American government of the country depends on Washington as a source of diplomatic, financial and military support against Russia's aggression in the Donbas, where the war lasts for four years. In addition, the Kremlin annexed the Crimea, causing a protest from the international community.

Poroshenko, it seems, was able to achieve good relations. Washington provided Javelin with anti-tank missile systems in Kiev, which Ukrainians have been asking for a long time to deter Russian forces in the East of Ukraine. To demonstrate support, John Bolton's adviser to the US National Security Adviser will come to celebrate Ukraine's Independence Day next week. And Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently made a tough call on Russia to end the occupation of the Crimea. However, there are fears that the Ukrainian-American relations may deteriorate again, given the relationship between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Struggling against the Kremlin for its territorial integrity, Kyiv feels that it does not have much room for maneuvers.

Recall that on June 27, 2017, the head of the SAP, Nazar Holodnitsky, said that the signature of P. Manafort was not on any of the pages of the so-called "barn book" of the Party of Regions. Thus, SAP and NABU did not find evidence of P. Manafort receiving money from the Party of Regions.

At the same time, NABU stated that they, together with the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office, were not authorized to investigate P. Manafort's activities as a political adviser to the Party of Regions.

In addition, in a publication published by the Washington Post on June 28, it is said that P. Manafort in 2012-2013 confirmed receipt of $17 million. from the Party of Regions. The fact that P. Manafort received money for work for the Party of Regions stems from documents filed by the United States with the US Department of Justice under the law on the registration of foreign agents.

The Office of the Special Prosecutor Robert Müeller, who is investigating Russia's interference with last year's US elections, has been charged with 12 points against former head of the trilogy headquarters of Trump Paul Manafort and his business partner, Rick Gates. In particular, they are accused of unregistered lobbying in the United States from 2008 to 2014 in the interests of the Government of Ukraine, the Party of Regions and former President Yanukovych.

Turkey has filed a complaint against the United States to the World Trade Organization

on Mon Aug 20, 2018 8:39 pm
Turkey has filed a complaint against the United States to the World Trade Organization

The Turkish authorities sent a request for consultations with the World Trade Organization (WTO) through the decision of US President Donald Trump to increase the duty on Turkish steel and aluminum.

The press service of the WTO reports this.

It is noted that the request for consultations was received by members of the organization on August 20.

In this request, Turkey emphasizes that the introduction of new duties by the United States is in violation of the WTO rules and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade of 1994.

The request for consultations is the first stage of the dispute within the WTO. The parties to the dispute have the opportunity to negotiate a dispute settlement through consultations. If, within 60 days, the parties to the dispute fail to find a solution, the plaintiff has the right to submit a request for the consideration of the case by a panel of judges.

Recall that the conflict between Ankara and Washington arose after the arrest in Turkey of American pastor Andrew Branson.

Following the persecution of Brunson, the United States imposed sanctions against two Turkish ministers in early August. This is the first case in history when senior NATO officials arrived under Washington sanctions.

A few days later, US President Donald Trump raised duties on Turkish steel and aluminum . Against the backdrop of deteriorating relations with the US, the course of the Turkish lira has fallen by 25% in a few days.

For his part, Erdogan called on the US authorities to change their attitude towards Turkey, threatening to seek new allies. He announced a boycott of electronics from the United States and signed a decree on duty increases for US goods.

On August 15, the court in Turkey refused to let Brunson out of house arrest.

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

The United States has threatened Turkey with new sanctions over Pastor Branson's case.

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, Brunson was taken under house arrest. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that Turkey should release him and release him to his homeland.

The US Senate will review new anti-Russian sanctions in September, Bloomberg

The United States Senate in September 2018 may consider imposing sanctions aimed at deterring the Russian Federation from interfering in US elections

Bloomberg reports.

The relevant bill is currently being revised to minimize unintended consequences for the world economy in connection with the automatic introduction of sanctions related to Russia's debt and energy.

"We want to be sure that the damage is limited by Russia's economy and that the influence on others is held back," said Sen. Chris Van Gollen.

Sen. Democrat Van Gollen and republican senator Marco Rubio are known to have submitted the document to the Senate in January this year. The bill envisages the imposition of sanctions against the Russian Federation in the event that the director of the National Intelligence of the United States, Den Coats, confirms Russia's interference in the United States interim elections. By the way, they are scheduled for November 2018.

Among the sanctions provided for in the document, there is a restriction on operations with new issues of government bonds of the Russian Federation. It also provides for blocking operations with shares of Russian energy companies, including companies such as Gazprom and Rosneft.

It also provides for restrictions on the banks of Russia, the metallurgical complex of the Russian Federation and against Russian officials.

Majority Senate Mitch McConnell said the Senate plans to consider the bill. In particular, the Senate has already directed the committees on international relations and banking to hold appropriate hearings on this document.

Earlier, the US State Department approved a decision on new sanctions against the Russian Federation for the poisoning of the Violinists. The sanctions will come into force on August 22, 2018.

It became known who ruined Ukraine with Yanukovych's hands: Manafort name was named

It became known who ruined Ukraine with Yanukovych's hands: Manafort name was named

An American lobbyist and political consultant, Paul Manafort, who conducted the election campaign of the Ukrainian president-fledger Viktor Yanukovych, is partly responsible for destabilizing Ukraine, illegal occupation of the Crimea and the war on the Donbas.

This is reported by Washington Post.

In the article, the assistant director of the Center for American Progress on corruption and illegal finances Diana Pilipenko notes that in Ukraine many accuse Manafort that in the wake of the defeat in the 2004 elections, Viktor Yanukovych reinstated his political position and won the election in 2010

People's deputy and former journalist Sergei Leshchenko said that Manaforth worked hard to bring Yanukovych to power and use his post for his own corrupt schemes.

Also, journalist Miroslav Gongadze, who works in the United States, said that the trial of the case against the American political technologist in the court of Alexandria, Virginia, is "the first serious process of political corruption in Ukraine during Yanukovych's time."

"The ex-president who fled from the country, demoralized law enforcement agencies and courts, suppressed press freedom, undermined Ukraine's integration with the European Union, strengthened the Kremlin's influence, and, along with dividends, stole about 100 billion dollars, equivalent to almost 90% of Ukraine's GDP last year", - the edition writes.

In March 2014, the US Treasury Department imposed sanctions on Yanukovych as a man who made a lot of effort to destabilize Ukraine, as well as his Russian allies.

"From this point of view, Manafort is partially responsible for Russia's illegal occupation of Crimea and the bloody war that Moscow has launched in the Donbas, and the victims of which were more than 10 thousand people," the Washington Post notes.

They began to fly out of the country: Ukraine made a tough statement about the lack of influence of the pro-Russian forces

Due to the lack of a military status in Ukraine, as well as the commitment of Kyiv to the norms of democracy, the "fifth column" is too loose in the country.

This opinion was expressed in an interview with "Apostrophe" by the coordinator of the "Information Resistance" group, People's Deputy Dmytro Timchuk.

"The point is that Ukraine is a law-governed state, and the absence of a military state plus the European democratic values ​​that we have now adopted on the ground play a bad role in the state of war, and this is not just about Viktor Medvedchuk, and in general, in the fifth Colony ", which is very active in Ukraine, and, moreover, they started to fly out of the hole this year, and if in 2014-15 they were sitting quietly as cockroaches behind the rough, today they are already at full height beginning to criticize the war party, to promote their theses, etc. This is a very dangerous process for a belligerent country." Head Timchuk.

He noted that fighting the fifth column is extremely difficult, "when various human rights international organizations tell about what we should do and what is not, while they talk about it from the standpoint of a country of peacetime."

"For us, this situation has a very bad shade and it is very difficult, because it is necessary to balance between some European values ​​of peacetime and at the same time to try to preserve the protection of the national interests of the warring country. Until we can find a golden mean in order to please Europe and thus to protect himself", - summed up the People's Deputy.
