In Sweden, advocate for blocking the construction of "North Stream-2"



Most of the political parties in Sweden are in favor of blocking the construction of the Russian pipeline "North Stream 2".

As informs Censor.NET with reference to "Ukrinform", this was reported by the radio station Sveriges Radio.

North Stream 2 is a poor supply both in terms of energy policy and environment and in terms of security policy. We are actively in favor of stopping this project in all possible ways, "said Karin Enstrem, EU Commissioner for the Middle East Coalition Party.

MEP Lars Adaktuson from the Christian Democratic Party of Sweden said that Russia does not respect international law, giving an example of the situation with Georgia and the Crimea. Therefore, he believes that it is important to find other ways to provide the EU with energy without becoming dependent on Russia.

Chairman of the Green Party at the EU Council in Parliament Jonas Eriksson said that Sweden had previously encountered difficulties in applying international law against North Stream 2, which is why he considers the European Commission's decision to amend the legislation to block the project.

Member of the European Union Council and left-wing Member Jens Holm stated that Sweden would support this initiative of the European Commission, regardless of the outcome of the voting, which will be held on Sunday.

"North Stream 2 project" will be blocked", - assured the Swedish deputy.

UN SC to hear Britain's charges against Russian spies involved in Salisbury nerve agent attack



The U.K. is going to brief the UN Security Council on Thursday on the arrest warrants it has issued for two Russian spies charged with carrying out a nerve agent attack on British soil.

As reported by Censor.NET citing AFP, Ambassador Karen Pierce will present the latest findings on the poisoning of Russian former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in the city of Salisbury.

The council will meet in open session at around 11:30 a.m.(1530 GMT), diplomats said.

Prime Minister Theresa May told parliament on Wednesday that two Russian military intelligence officials carried out the March 4 attack. Police identified them as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov.

Petrov and Boshirov, described as agents for the Russian military intelligence agency known as GRU, face charges of conspiracy to murder and attempted murder of Skripal and his daughter, the first criminal charges in the case.

"The GRU is a highly-disciplined organization with a well-established chain of command. So this was not a rogue operation," May told parliament.

"It was almost certainly also approved outside the GRU at a senior level of the Russian state."

Russia has denied any involvement in the attack using the nerve agent Novichok that left Skripal and his daughter unconscious on a park bench in Salisbury.

As of the morning of September 6, more than 100.5 thousand people signed up to the petition. In general, it was necessary to gather 100 thousand votes by September 8.



In recent days, users in social networks have complained of limited access to the petition.

On July 5, his sister Natalia Kaplan visited his short-term date with Sentsov in the "White Bear" colony in Labitnangi. This was the  first meeting for 3 years . They spoke for two hours.
