Kremlin agents detained in Ukraine who were preparing to ruin the election

During August, SBU staff exposed and blocked the activities of Russian propagandists who were preparing to intervene in the course of the upcoming presidential elections in Ukraine.

This is reported by the press center of the SBU.

Law enforcers found that Russian intelligence services through the Internet had attracted "cooperation" among Dnipro, Kryvyi Rih and Nikopol residents, who are administrators of social networking groups, bloggers. These citizens were supposed to publish political news sent from Russia and to attract "forgery" persons to register sites in the Ukrainian segment of domain names. On these resources, destructive publications were planned, including appeals for violent changes in the constitutional order of Ukraine and violation of its territorial integrity.

"Thus, the Russian Federation tried to distribute" fake "news and popularize certain pro-Russian participants in the election process, that is, it created a springboard for influencing the course of the upcoming presidential elections in Ukraine through manipulating public opinion on the Internet", - noted in the SBU.

Investigators of the SBU launched a criminal investigation into crimes against the foundations of Ukraine's national security.

The French president spoke on "upgrading" relations with Russia

The French president spoke on "upgrading" relations with Russia

French President Emmanuel Macron urged the European Union to modernize its relations with Russia.

He said this during a press conference in Helsinki, reports Reuters.

The French president strongly advocated Europe's ability to defend its strategic interests and claim its financial independence in response to the new global economic and defense situation created by Donald Trump in the United States.

According to Macron, Europe has long relied on US defense, and while NATO remains important for it, the EU still needs to strengthen its own defense capabilities.

"It is in the interests of the EU to have strategic relations with Turkey and Russia. It's not about forgetting the events of the last years, that would be wrong, but you can cooperate more deeply, "said Macron.

In his opinion, relations with the Russian Federation can be "updated".

In July, the European Union for six months extended economic sanctions against Russia.

For the first time, the EU imposed sanctions on Russia in July 2014 as a response to Russia's "destabilizing actions in Ukraine."

On June 29, the European Parliament passed a decision to extend sanctions against Russia for the annexation of the Crimea and Sevastopol.

Also, on May 14, 2018, the European Union imposed sanctions against five individuals through the organization of "elections" in the annexed Crimea.

The embassy also mentions the history of Crimean Tatars Rizvan Abdurmanov, who disappeared in Crimea.

"In 2016, the 48-year-old Crimean Tatar Rizvan Abduramanov from the village of Batalnya went to Theodosia to get a new job. He did not return home anymore. We are deeply concerned about the disappearance of the Crimeans, in particular Rizhvan, "the embassy points out.

On August 29, in Simferopol, Russian security forces searched the activist of the Ukrainian Cultural Center Olga Pavlenko.

After the occupation of the Crimea by Russia, 55 cases of torture of local residents were recorded on the peninsula.

"I'll crush you!" - shouted Putin on Poroshenko in Minsk. Former French President Hollande described in detail

on Thu Aug 30, 2018 2:28 pm
"I'll crush you!" - shouted Putin on Poroshenko in Minsk. Former French President Hollande described in detail

A politician frankly describes the negotiation process and talks about Putin's then and present intentions.

This is reported by Tsensor.NET with reference to the  "Week".

Former French President Francois Hollande has published a book of memories titled "Lessons of Power." On her pages, he told about how the "Norman Four" talks in Minsk in February 2015 were concluded, culminating in the signing of the Minsk Agreements.

"The intentions of Vladimir Putin were quite obvious," says Olland. "He wanted to preserve his influence in the Russian-speaking regions and weaken the pro-European power in Kyiv as much as possible."



The politician recalls that the Russian presidents Vladimir Putin and Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, often went to the raised tone. At the same time, the head of the Kremlin directly threatened the leader of Ukraine and issued the fact that his troops are attacking Ukrainian forces in the Donbas.

"Poroshenko and Putin constantly raised their voice on each other, and the Russian president was so nervous that he began threatening to completely crush the army of his visitor, which revealed that Russian troops are in the east of the country." Putin shook his head and took hold of him, "Hollande recalls.

"Poroshenko was indifferent to defending the sovereignty of his country, while Putin sought autonomy for the" rebel provinces, "and wanted to put an end to the ceasefire for another three weeks. He was so rigid that he denied his direct connection with the terrorist leaders, saying that he could not demanded that they be consulted", - wrote the former president of France.



The politician recalls that the first draft of the Minsk agreements was made personally by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

"She did not allow anyone, even his advisers, to formulate the articles of the agreement," Francois Hollande says. "Such is her temperament and technique: she is very serious, diligent and attentive."

According to Holland, after a sleepless night devoted to the talks, the parties agreed on the ceasefire, the withdrawal of heavy weapons and the exchange of prisoners. But here the head of the Kremlin made an unexpected move.

"Suddenly, Putin said that they should consult with the leaders of the separatists, their emissaries are also in Minsk, where exactly? At some hotel or in the next room with us? At least, we did not see them," - said Olland.



After that, Putin left, and Merkel, Hollande and Poroshenko had a little nap in the chairs. On the ninth morning it became known that the deal was "not suitable" for the terrorists.

"We insist on an immediate meeting with the Russian president and find out that while we tried, as we could, sleep in the negotiating room, he settled in a large office with a bed, even seems comfortable ... He rested for these two hours and had a much more fresh look, than we... "- recalls Olland.

The former president of France argues in the pages of his book about Vladimir Putin's then-present intentions.

"His goal is to weaken Kyiv as much as possible in the hope of seeing a team in power later on, more tolerant of Russia's interests and more distant from the European Union. He mostly does not want Ukraine to join NATO and gain weapons that could change the balance of power," says Olland.

François Hollande was the president of France from 2012 to 2017. He was the first of the "Norman Four" to step down from power and was given the freedom to tell everything he considered necessary. More to run for the post of head of state is not going to Holland.

The level of relations between the United States and Ukraine is the highest in history.
This was announced by President Petro Poroshenko, reports Censor.NET.



"The dialogue between Kiev and Washington has never been as intense and fruitful as today. It's worth the decision of the President of the United States to provide Ukraine with defense lethal weapons," the head of state said during the 13th meeting of the Ambassadors of Ukraine in Kyiv on August 28.

According to him, this is not only a result of the incredible volume of diplomatic work, but also the best evidence that there is a high level of trust between Kiev and Washington.

In an interview with BBC News Ukraine, the head of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Viktor Muzhenko said that the unit, which was armed with Javelin, was trained and ready to use them.
