The White House adviser described the details of the conversation with Trump and Putin

on Wed Aug 22, 2018 12:41 pm
The White House adviser described the details of the conversation with Trump and Putin

Contact US and Russian presidents did not give any insight into the intentions of the Syrian President Bashar Assad against the rebels in Idlib

Said John Bolton, a US national security adviser, writes Reuters.

Russia is "stuck" in Syria and wants others to finance the post-war reconstruction in the country, Bolton convinced. He warned against any use of chemical or biological weapons there.

Under President Donald Trump, the United States sought to withdraw from Syria, where the previous administration deployed some troops and provided limited support to the Kurdish insurgent forces, despite the opposition of the NATO partner of Turkey.

Bolton has touched on whether these measures will continue, stating that the US remains in Syria to fulfill some specific goals.

"Our interests in Syria are to end the destruction of the territorial caliphate of the Islamic State and to combat the further threat of IDIL terrorism, and to cope with the presence of Iranian militias and regular forces," he said.

At a press conference in Jerusalem, Bolton claimed support for Israeli strikes in recent months over sites in Syria, where, according to him, missiles delivered by Iran and other "threatening weapons" were deployed.

"I think this is a legitimate act of self-defense by Israel," he said.

Bolton said that Russian President Vladimir Putin, who met with Trump in Helsinki on July 16, told the United States that Moscow could not force Iranians to leave Syria.

"But he also told us that his interests and interests in Iran are not exactly the same, so we will obviously talk to him about the role they can play," said Bolton, who met with his Russian counterpart Nikalay Patrushev on Thursday. Geneva

Russia, a supporter of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, claims that she is devoted to the destruction of militants of the "Islamic State," but is more optimistic about the participation of Iran, another foreign state, which strengthens Damascus.

Washington uses leverage in its talks with Moscow, because "the Russians are stuck there for the moment," said Bolton.

"And I do not think they want to get stuck there. I think their booming diplomatic activity in Europe indicates that they would like to find someone else, for example, to cover the costs of restoring Syria that they may or may not be able to do"- said adviser Trump.

The Idlib region, a refuge for civilians and rebels migrating from other parts of Syria, as well as powerful jihadist forces, was shocked by the wave of air strikes and shelling this month, in a possible prelude to a full-scale government offensive.

Asked if there is any American-Russian understanding of such an operation, Bolton replied: "No. But we are very concerned when looking at the military situation and we want to be unmistakable as Assad, that we expect no chemical application weapons or biological weapons if there are any additional military actions in Idlib."

In April, the Trump administration assembled a coalition of US, French and British forces to attack the Syrian government's chemical weapons production facilities, and after the attack by poison gas, dozens of people died in the Duma area.

Damascus, supported by Moscow, denies the use of such weapons.

When asked about how the United States can respond to the chemical or biological attack on Idlib, Bolton responded only "Decisively."

Repeating this warning at a press conference, he added: "They (Syrians) should really think about it long before they come to some decision."

Putin wants to seriously hurt the United States, creating a break in society - the State Department

on Wed Aug 22, 2018 12:44 pm
Putin wants to seriously hurt the United States, creating a break in society - the State Department

US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Wess Mitchell said Putin wants to break the United States, so it's important to develop a long-term response to this challenge.

With such a statement, he spoke at a meeting of the Senate Committee on International Affairs on Tuesday, August 21.

According to him, for the US split, Putin does not even have to interfere in the elections.

"Putin's thesis is that the American Constitution is an experiment that fails if it challenges the outside world. Putin wants the disintegration of the American republic, but without affecting the election, and systematically affecting the line of failure in American society," he said. Mitchell.

According to him, the Kremlin financially and organizationally supported the American politicians both left and right views. Including controversial groups that promote violence, the assault on federal authorities and the overthrow of the US government. At the same time, the diplomat urged not to politicize the challenge created by Putin.

"Acceptance of this fact is extremely important for a long-term answer to this problem." The most dangerous thing in the world would be to politicize this challenge - it would become a true present to Putin, "Mitchell said.

Russia will stop gas transit through Ukraine if Nord Stream 2 launches - Klimkin

on Wed Aug 22, 2018 12:47 pm
Russia will stop gas transit through Ukraine if Nord Stream 2 launches - Klimkin

Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin said that in the event of Russia's completion of the construction of the North Stream 2 pipeline, it will stop transit of gas through Ukraine's gas transit system, despite any guarantees.

Klimkin stated this at a meeting with journalists, reports UNIAN.

"If this project was once theoretically built, I directly pointed it out to both the European Commission and Germany, then Russia will definitely stop shipping through the Ukrainian route, no matter what guarantees," said Klimkin.

He also added that Ukraine will continue to fight against the construction of the northern stream-2.

Recall that on August 19, Russian President Vladimir Putin during a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that "North Stream 2" is a purely economic project .

July 16, US President Donald Trump said that the construction of the North Stream 2 pipeline in Russia threatens the US shale gas market in Europe, making the US and Russia rivals.

Earlier, Trump stated that the construction of the North Stream 2 pipeline was a catastrophe for Europe .

On July 12, Trump during a NATO Summit press conference said he considers it unacceptable to conclude agreements with Russia in the energy sector.

Let's remind that prior to the NATO summit, Trump criticized Germany for permission to build the Russian pipeline "North Stream 2" and said that Germany was "hostage to Russia" in supplying energy resources.

In response Merkel reiterated that Germany is shaping its policy independently and without Russia's influence.

Recall that on July 25 in Germany began work on laying pipes "North Stream-2" bottom of the Baltic Sea.

On January 31, 2018, Germany allowed the Nord Stream 2 to be built on its territory, and on March 27 it allowed construction .

On May 3, Germany began building a ground part of the North Stream-2 , despite the lack of all permits from the countries through which the pipeline would run.

Also, Finland and Sweden have allowed construction of the pipeline "Nord Stream 2" in their economic zones.

On July 23, Deputy State Secretary for Energy Resources Francis Fennon said that the US supports the transit of Russian gas to the EU via Ukraine and condemns the construction of the North Stream 2 pipeline.

The day before, it was reported that in the US Congress registered a bill on the introduction of sanctions for the construction of the Russian gas pipeline "North Stream 2".

Earlier, Trump stated that the construction of the North Stream 2 pipeline was a catastrophe for Europe . However, after a meeting with Putin, Trump softened his position on the Russian gas pipeline.

On July 12, Trump during a NATO Summit press conference said he considers it unacceptable to conclude agreements with Russia in the energy sector.

Let's remind that prior to the NATO summit, Trump criticized Germany for permission to build the Russian pipeline "North Stream 2" and said that Germany was "hostage to Russia" in supplying energy resources.

Russia has replenished its gold and currency reserves by 26 tons of gold because of the risk of US sanctions

on Wed Aug 22, 2018 12:49 pm
Russia has replenished its gold and currency reserves by 26 tons of gold because of the risk of US sanctions

In July 2018, Russia increased its gold and exchange reserves by 26.1 tons of bank gold. This is the largest acquisition of gold during the month since the beginning of the year.

This was reported Bloomberg referring to the analytical data of the International Monetary Fund.

By increasing its reserves in gold, Russia is trying to minimize the potential financial damage from the introduction of tougher US sanctions, which, in particular, may relate to Russian dollar settlements with the Russian Federation.

In general, experts estimate the total size of Russia's gold reserves at 2.17 thousand tons of gold, the total value of which is $ 77.4 billion.

We remind that in July it was reported that the Central Bank of the Russian Federation massively sells US debt bonds because of fears that they could be confiscated through US sanctions. Over the past few months, Russia has sold about 80% of all US government debt held by it

Earlier it was reported that US Senators proposed to impose sanctions on Russia's government debt securities operations for her involvement in armed conflicts in Ukraine and Syria.

"The current regime of sanctions did not prevent Russia from interfering in the interim elections of 2018," said Republican senator Lindsay Sin. Earlier, he reported that the draft of his new sanctions against Russia would be "hellish punishment" of Russia.

As noted, the restrictions on transactions with public debt in Russia can significantly affect the economy of the Russian Federation, since about a third of all government debt securities of Russia belong to foreigners.

On July 21, the US Treasury Department announced that it was ready to exclude from the sanction list of the Russian manufacturer of aluminum "Rusal" , because the company "is important for the world aluminum market".

On July 19, Republican Senator John Barrasso announced that he had registered a bill on the imposition of sanctions against North Stream-2 .

On July 18, Montenegro, Albania, Norway, Georgia and Ukraine joined the decision of the Council of the European Union on June 18 to extend the period of sanctions by June 23, 2019 through the annexation of the Crimea.

On July 5, the European Union for six months extended economic sanctions against Russia - they will operate until January 31, 2019.

Facebook removed 652 pages related to Russia and Iran

on Wed Aug 22, 2018 12:53 pm
Facebook removed 652 pages related to Russia and Iran

Facebook eliminated 652 pages related to Russia and Iran in the fight against the spread of inaccurate information.

This is reported by CNN.

The company said that a number of pages, accounts and groups were removed for coordinated false positives in social networks Facebook and Instagram.

"Part of this activity is recorded in Iran, part - in Russia," - said in Facebook.

The company clarified that the Iranian and Russian accounts were not related to each other, but their actions used a similar tactic, which created accounts networks to mislead other people.

In total, the company removed 652 accounts that worked for audiences in Latin America, the US, and the Middle East.

"We have removed pages, groups and accounts that may be related to sources that the US government has previously identified as Russian military intelligence services. It has nothing to do with the activity that we have discovered in Iran, "added the statement.

In early August, Facebook announced a new intervention before the US elections.

Recall, the United States began investigating Russia's interference in the presidential election in 2016 after the trilogue adviser to the Australian diplomat said.

On April 3, the US arrested the first suspect in Russia's interference with the election.

It also became known that the special prosecutor Müller found evidence of a connection between the Kremlin and Trump before his inauguration.

In February 2018, the US first charged 13 citizens of Russia with interference with the US presidential election. Among the accused are businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin, close to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The general told how the Kremlin is trying to introduce capitulation in Ukraine

on Wed Aug 22, 2018 12:55 pm
The general told how the Kremlin is trying to introduce capitulation in Ukraine

Russian President Vladimir Putin is waiting for an election in Ukraine to dictate the conditions for peace on the Donbass by introducing pro-Kremlin forces.

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

"The Kremlin still expects the presidential elections to take place in March next year, and possibly parliamentary ones, but especially to the presidential ones, because now everything is aimed at using all the arguments and opportunities in the international arena, and especially in Ukraine. in order to bring the pro-Kremlin forces to power, in a word of revenge. And now we are already seeing what happens on certain TV channels, in certain media - these are the statements of some politicians who say not about the victorious world, but about somewhere in the world. And what is it for peace and on what conditions - for this nobody says anything. Proputean forces are trying to introduce into the public consciousness that the future of Ukraine is pseudo-pacifism and capitulation. That is, we must cling to Putin's knees and ask him for peace, which he, maybe, will allow Ukraine to have ", - he explains.

At the same time, Bogdan is confident that pro-Russian candidates and politicians will not win the upcoming elections in Ukraine.

"Of course, this is a completely unacceptable position for Ukraine that will not dominate, and pro-Russian candidates and politicians will not win the upcoming elections, but such plans in the Kremlin are also an attempt to interfere in Ukraine's internal political affairs", - the expert believes.

The Ukrainian embassy in UK demands punishing Phillips's propagandist for intimidation of diplomats

on Wed Aug 22, 2018 1:00 pm
The Ukrainian embassy in UK demands punishing Phillips's propagandist for intimidation of diplomats

The Embassy of Ukraine in the UK has written in writing to the British Foreign Office calling for legal action against a pro-Russian advocate, British Graham Phillips

This is stated in the last two notes of the Ukrainian embassy to the British Forin-office, according to "European truth."

The embassy emphasizes that the British Foreign Ministry has repeatedly formally and informally informed the public about the hatred of Philip on the Ukrainian government and the Ukrainian people, as well as his efforts to hurt the work of the Ukrainian embassy in London.

In this regard, since 2016, the embassy, ​​besides the last two, has sent three more diplomatic notes with complaints to Philips.

In particular, the embassy asked for measures against Phillips through its activities in the occupied Donbass and the support of terrorists.

Diplomats drew attention to the fact that in August, Phillips repeatedly resorted to provocations. On August 8, he responded to the Ukrainian embassy's condemnation of his assault on the Georgian Embassy in London.

On Twitter, the propagandist wrote: "Good attempt, Embassy of Ukraine, and now listen." I returned to London, so try to hold even more of his actions, which will glorify the Nazis, and we will have a conversation."

"The embassy is considering this tweet as hatred and insult, as well as a clear and open threat and intimidation, and an apparent intention to commit a hate crime," Ukrainian diplomats said, reminding that in the past, during the embassy's events, Philip's provocative behavior had to interfere the police.

On August 21, Phillips recorded a video before entering the Ukrainian embassy on the eve of Independence Day in Ukraine, which, according to diplomats, offended the Ukrainian ambassador Natalia Galibarenko and the embassy staff.

In the video, he swore, called the Ukrainian ambassador "abnormal", and the staff of the embassy "inadequate" and "a bunch of wildflowers."

"Such acts are considered a crime under the 1994 Criminal Justice and Public Order Act, which requires a proper response and assessment by the British Forin Office and law enforcement agencies," the Ukrainian embassy said.

Diplomats also warned that Grem's plans to prepare a report on the Independence Day of Ukraine could lead to another provocation.

US sanctions against Russia for poisoning violators have come into force

on Wed Aug 22, 2018 1:09 pm
US sanctions against Russia for poisoning violators have come into force

The first stage of the new US sanctions against Russia, which was introduced for the poisoning of the former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter, came into force on August 22.

The sanctions were imposed because the Russian authorities violated international law, in particular regarding the use of chemical and biological weapons.

The first stage of sanctions 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 of the sanctions will be introduced if, within the 90-day period, Russia does not agree to stop the use of chemical weapons and prevent UN observers from conducting inspections.

August 8, the United States announced new sanctions against Russia because of the poisoning in Great Britain of the former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia.

It should be noted that, in accordance with American law on the control of chemical and biological weapons, US authorities are obliged to stop the sale of weapons and technology related to national security, a country using chemical or biological weapons.

Russia has called unfounded accusations by the United States of involvement in the poisoning of the former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia in Great Britain.

The Russian Foreign Ministry described the actions of the US as "hypocritical", relying on the fact that the United States "is in no hurry to destroy its chemical weapons arsenal and remain the only member-state of the OPCW (the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons - Ed.), Which has significant chemical reserves."

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 European Union will extend sanctions against Russia, but this is not a very fast process, - Klimkin



Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin is confident that the European Union will expand the sanctions list against the Russian Federation.

According to Censor.NET, referring to Interfax-Ukraine, he told reporters on Wednesday in Kiev.

"The EU is considering it, but the process itself is happening, unfortunately, not very quickly, and that decision must be taken," - said P. Klimkin.

He recalled that the process of imposing sanctions in response to the presidential election in the occupied Crimea lasted several months.

"Just the same months will be spent processing new sanctions," - said P. Klimkin.

The minister stressed that the sanctions pressure on the Russian Federation is increasing on the part of both the United States and Europe.

According to him, the sanctions against the Russian Federation do not allow Russia to "develop and feel a civilized country."

"We will work not only to expand these sanctions purely arithmetic, but also to increase the number of companies, and that these sanctions systematically affect Russia," said P.Klimkin.

Earlier it was reported that the US Treasury Department on Tuesday, August 21, has listed two Russian citizens, six cargo ships under the Russian flags, three Russian legal entities and one company from Slovakia.

Measures on the part of individuals and legal entities are introduced in connection with their activities in cyberspace, in relation to others - in connection with the DPRK.

Almost 400 kg of cocaine, found in the Russian embassy, ​​was burned down in Argentina

on Wed Aug 22, 2018 2:23 pm
Almost 400 kg of cocaine, found in the Russian embassy, ​​was burned down in Argentina



Argentina's law enforcement agencies burnt cocaine on Tuesday, which was discovered in a building of the Russian embassy in Buenos Aires. Drugs were destroyed in a crematorium in the presence of the Minister of Security of the South American republic, Patricia Bullrice, and the Russian Ambassador Dmitry Feoktistov.

As informs Censor.NET, TASS reports.

"This is an important event in the" 12 Queens "operation," said Bullrice. "It was a very complicated operation with a high level of interaction."

According to her, thanks to joint actions, including the replacement of cocaine with flour and supply tracking, it was possible "to expose the entire criminal chain, both in Argentina and in Russia."

"The active part of the operation to stop the supply of drugs is over," said Feoktistov.

"Former Russian Ambassador Viktor Coronelli came to the Ministry of Security late in the evening and told us that there is reason to believe that there is cocaine in one of the embassy's buildings. We immediately called the gendarmerie, and the same night before 6 am when people were supposed to come, who are watching this room, we have replaced the cocaine with flour, "said Bullrich.

"The operation lasted 14 months, and at some point we already thought that they [the criminals] would not come across the cargo, that they realized that someone had suspected something. However, everything was successful," added Bullrice.

In late February, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported that the law enforcement agencies of Russia and Argentina conducted a joint operation to stop the channel of delivery of a large batch of drugs to the European market. According to the Russian foreign ministry, a party of cocaine (362 kg) found at one of the houses of the Russian Embassy in Buenos Aires, belonged to the staff member of the diplomatic staff, who had already completed the trip to that point. Six people were detained during the investigation: three in Russia (Volodymyr Kalmykov, Ishtimir Khudzhamov and Ali Abyanov), two in Argentina and one in Germany (organizer of a criminal group Andriy Kovalchuk). In July, Germany issued Kovalchuk of Russia.

Latvia and Estonia are studying the possibility of levying compensation from the Russian Federation for the Soviet occupation



Latvia and Estonia investigate the possibility of levying compensation from the Russian Federation for the damage incurred during the Soviet occupation.

According to Censor.NET , referring to Ukrinform, a joint statement by Latvian Justice Ministers Jintars Rähnschs and Estonia, Urmas Reinsalu, published Tuesday on the website of the Ministry of Justice of Estonia.

"Justice ministers emphasize that it is important to remember the human losses experienced during the Soviet occupation and to investigate the possibility of filing a claim for the reparation of the Soviet Union by the State of the Russian Federation," the document said.

The ministers reviewed legal research from the point of view of international law on the possibilities of moving this issue and possible measures to solve the problem at the UN level.

It is noted that both parties revere the victims of Soviet occupation and value cooperation in interpreting the historical heritage to ensure national independence, democracy and the rule of law.

As you know, in 2016 a special commission announced that the estimated damage inflicted on the Latvian economy during the occupation of the USSR was 185 billion euros. Also, demographic losses and environmental damage were estimated at several tens of billions of euros.

American friend of the leaders of the DPR-LNR criticized Putin's policy in Syria: laughing in the network

The American militant MMA and the admirer of the so-called "DPR" and "LNR" fighters Jeff Monson, who received Russian citizenship , despite the fact that he already had a "passport" of the LNR, criticized Putin's policy in Syria.

A corresponding photo criticized by the Russian president posted on Facebook blogger W. Peskov.

"The candidate for the Krasnogorsk deputies Jeffrey Monson said that Russia needs to reduce military spending and leave Syria," - it is written in the photo.

This statement caused dissatisfaction with the blogger.

"They will know the citizenship of anyone, and they will then be thankful not to the back in their hands, but to the jaw in the jaw," wrote Usa Peskova.

Here's how the users of the network reacted to the following statement:

"He is repulsed, he even apparently did not understand that he had stopped, now his older" comrades "will explain how" homeland "is to be loved and he will sing differently", "Typical exiled Cossack. At night there will be entrances to the entrance in his district and light bulbs", "Dear Government, Dolab ... Bam gives citizenship, but support the Russians from Sdd Dju", "Correctly said! Good will be a deputy!", "Diva even Monson, with a well repulsed head understands more of our potsriots...".

In the United States, they plan to spend $380 million on Congressional Security

US Congress appropriated a total of $ 380 million to the states to ensure the security of upcoming Congressional elections that will take place in November

This is reported by  The Wall Street Journal.

It is noted that $135 million of this amount in the United States will be spent on increasing cybersecurity, and even more than $ 102 million - to replace electronic voting machines for other, more secure devices.

The remaining funds are used to improve voter databases and communication tools.

In early August, US Senator Bill Nelon said that Russian hackers had penetrated some of Florida's polling stations and could remove registered voters on the eve of the election if the systems were not properly protected.

-As it was reported, the White House is preparing a decree on punishment for foreign interference in the US elections.
