The United States imposed sanctions on Russian and Chinese companies for cooperation with North Korea

on Fri Sep 14, 2018 8:14 am
The United States imposed sanctions on Russian and Chinese companies for cooperation with North Korea

The United States imposed sanctions on two IT companies located in China and Russia for supporting Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs.

This is reported by Censor.NET with reference to Radio Liberty.

New sanctions targeting the Chinese company Yanbian Silverstar Network Technology Co., its North Korean executive director named Jong Song Hwa and the Volasys Silver Star subsidiary in Russia, said the US Department of the Treasury on September 13.

The statement said that the Chinese Silverstar was linked to the Department of North Korean Armed Forces Military Industry, which controls ballistic missile programs.

Volasys was founded by a North Korean employee of the Chinese Silverstar, "most likely to facilitate circumventing the requirements for identification at freelance workplaces and to hide the true citizenship of North Korean workers from customers," the report said.

US Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin said that the restrictions were intended to "stop the flow of North Korean illicit proceeds from foreign information technology workers who hide their true identity and hide behind firms, pseudonyms and third-country nationals."

He warned companies around the world that they "take preventive measures to ensure that they do not inadvertently use North Korean companies for technology projects."

Sanctions block any assets that may have companies in US jurisdictions and prohibit US citizens from cooperating with them.

"I can state that we have played Russia", - Poroshenko, on Ukrainian exports to the EU

Ukraine, by increasing exports to the European Union, compensates for trade losses caused by the state of Russia.

As informs Censor.NET with reference to the head of state in Twitter, Ukrainian President said Petro Poroshenko at the 15th annual YES meeting.



"I can state that Russia has been overplaying, and for more than a year now, as the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU has come into force. The European Union's share in exports varies from 42 to 43%, rapidly approaching 50%, and this is a significant compensator for the losses that caused us Russia", - he said.

British court canceled payment of Ukraine $3 billion to the "debt of Yanukovych" to Russia and returned the case to trial

on Fri Sep 14, 2018 8:22 am
British court canceled payment of Ukraine $3 billion to the "debt of Yanukovych" to Russia and returned the case to trial

The British Court of Appeals has decided to reconsider the London court of first instance ruling in favor of Russia in a dispute with Ukraine over $3 billion of so-called "Yanukovych's debt"

Bloomberg reports.

At the end of 2013, Russian President Vladimir Putin and at that time, President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych agreed on a loan from Russia in the amount of $15 billion through the purchase of Ukrainian bonds. Russia managed to buy $3 bln bonds. After the fall of the Yanukovych regime, Ukraine offered Russia debt restructuring, but the Russians responded against Ukraine in the High Court of London for collecting money.

Ukraine in its defense called Putin-Yanukovych an agreement illegal and non-enforced. The denial concerns the violation of domestic laws and regulations during the issuance of Eurobonds, pressure from the RF to prevent the Agreement on Association of Ukraine with the EU, the evidence of Russia's military incursion into the Crimea, Russia's destabilization of the situation in eastern Ukraine, and support in this region of the military action

On March 29, 2017, the London High Court ordered Ukraine to pay the debt, but allowed to appeal and suspended its decision.

The Court of Appeal ruled that the first instance court mistakenly failed to take into consideration Ukraine's assertion that granting $3 billion was part of the Kremlin's policy and should be considered a political bribe. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal decided to continue the proceedings under the full procedure.

If the world, the "Norman format" will agree to elections in the occupied Donbass, then it legalizes "L / DNR" - Kuchma

If the world, the "Norman format" will agree to elections in the occupied Donbass, then it legalizes "L / DNR" - Kuchma



If the civilized world, and in particular the countries of the "Norman format" (Germany, France, Ukraine, Russia) will agree to hold elections to uncontrolled Kiev territories in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, this legalizes the power that now exists in the so-called "LNR" and "DPR".

As Censor.NET informs with reference to Interfax-Ukraine, this was stated by the second president of Ukraine, the representative of the country in the Trilateral Contact Group Leonid Kuchma.

"It is a flagrant violation of the uncontrolled Kyiv in Donetsk and Lugansk regions - Ed." If the world, "the Norman format" agrees, then we simply legalize the power that is still present in the so-called "LNR" and". "He told journalists on the sidelines of the 15th annual meeting of the Yalta European Strategy (YES), organized by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation in Kyiv.

L. Kuchma stressed that such elections can not be admitted.

In addition, he stated the need for regular talks in the "Norman format" and that the Ukrainian side "has to loudly shout about it."

Earlier, the Special Representative of the United States Department of State for Ukraine, Kurt Volker, said that the organization of elections for the so-called "DNR" and "LNR" for November was illegitimate, since, according to the logic of the Minsk Agreements, these territorial units should not exist, but instead the mayors and heads of regional administrations should be elected after achieving security in the region.

Putin is waiting for: the weakness of Ukraine is named for the Kremlin's attack

Putin is waiting for: the weakness of Ukraine is named for the Kremlin's attack

In talks with the West on Ukraine, Russia does not want to make concessions, because it believes that in the long run it can win.

Such an opinion in an article for "Apostrophe" was expressed by the expert of the "Maydan of Foreign Affairs" fund, Alexander Hara.

"Russia is not going to take action, because it believes that in the long run Ukraine can defeat, and we understand that the weak element in our system is the upcoming elections, so it is unlikely that anything will change in the Donbass before the elections," the expert writes.

He admits that some kind of exacerbation may occur on the eve of the elections in the Donbass, but now the Kremlin is waiting, hoping that "Ukraine will be plunged into quarrels and some centrifugal tendencies will begin to appear, or the authorities in Kiev will change into more loyal to Russia."

"We see that they have some reason to hope for this: there was a whole host of peacekeepers, mostly pro-Russian." The provision of tomoses for autocephaly may be an additional line of tension, and I am convinced that Russian intelligence services, including using useful Russian idiots, will be able to create conflict points in order to show that the Ukrainian society is facing confrontation and destabilizing the political situation", - summed up Hara.

The future of world Orthodoxy is solved in Ukraine: the concept of "Third Rome" falls apart like a house of cards - Poroshenko

on Fri Sep 14, 2018 8:43 am
The future of world Orthodoxy is solved in Ukraine: the concept of "Third Rome" falls apart like a house of cards - Poroshenko



The bishops' council of the Ecumenical Patriarchate dispelled Moscow's illusion that Ukraine is a canonical territory of the Moscow Patriarchate, said Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.

"The only local orthodox congregation church is the key to the social harmony and unity of our state. This is a guarantee of our spiritual independence from Moscow, which, unfortunately, is still in captivity of the false idea that it is alleged that here we have its canonical territory," he said in a Tonzor in Kiev at the 15th Annual Meeting of the Yalta European Strategy (YES), organized by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, reports Censor.NET, referring to Interfax-Ukraine.

"And the September Synagogue, the assembly of the bishops of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, completely erased these false illusions of Moscow," - added P.Poroshenko.

According to him, the issue of giving the Ukrainian Orthodox Church Tomos is also important outside the country.

"Ukrainians from all over the world will also receive their church, and here is another important characteristic - it crumbles like a card house, the concept of" Third Rome, "as Moscow's most ancient request for world hegemony," the head of state said.

"Here we also solve the future of world Orthodoxy - we also understand it differently with Russians", - emphasized P.Poroshenko.

Earlier it became known that the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew appointed exarchs to provide autocephaly to the Ukrainian Church.

Recall that on April 17, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko announced that he had decided to appeal to the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew with a request to give Tomas to the Ukrainian national autocephalous church.

On April 19, the Verkhovna Rada supported the address of President Poroshenko to the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew to grant the Ukrainian Orthodox Church an autocephaly.

On April 22, Poroshenko said that the Ecumenical Patriarchate began to consider the request of Ukraine.

In July, the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew confirmed his intention to donate autocephaly to the Ukrainian church.

Investments into Ukraine in six months increased by 26.5%

on Fri Sep 14, 2018 8:47 am
Investments into Ukraine in six months increased by 26.5%

Capital investment in Ukraine in the first six months of 2018 increased by 26.5%.

This was stated by President Petro Poroshenko during the annual meeting of the Yalta European Strategy.

"Large foreign investors believe in our country, create jobs, despite the fact that the war with the Russian Federation is still ongoing. The GDP grew by 3.6% in the second quarter, the deficit of the State Budget was reduced, "the president said.

He also added that today the ratio of public debt to GDP is 63%. For comparison, in 2016 this figure amounted to over 86%.

Previously, the National Bank said that in the first six months Ukraine had received $1.2 billion direct foreign investment. According to the National Bank, Ukraine's foreign exchange reserves amounted to about $18 billion, which is enough to meet the import needs for 3.1 months.

Previously, the National Bank of Ukraine conducted a study of foreign direct investment, which came to Ukraine during 2010-2017, and found that 22% of these revenues were returned from offshore accounts by funds brought out by Ukrainian citizens.

On July 26, it became known that at the meeting of the Financial Stability Board, which includes the National Bank, the Ministry of Finance and regulators of the financial market, noted that the greatest threat to financial security is the lack of IMF tranche .

Recall that cooperation with the International Monetary Fund is not currently due to a lack of compromise on key fund requirements for Ukraine to receive a tranche. Namely, it is about equalizing gas prices for the population and for industry, as well as balancing the state budget of Ukraine so that the deficit does not exceed 2.5% of GDP.

Previously, the European Business Association reported that Ukraine needed to resume cooperation with the IMF by July 20, otherwise the threat of default would increase significantly.

According to representatives of the European Business Association, the IMF does not negotiate cooperation with countries during election campaigns. That is, there will be no tranche for the period of the presidential and parliamentary campaigns.

Putin loses: a well-known politician from the EU has voiced an important truth about Russia

Putin loses: a well-known politician from the EU has voiced an important truth about Russia

In terms of democracy, Russia lags behind the developed world for 50 years, but it needs to help change.

This was stated by the legendary president of Poland in 1990-1995, Lech Walesa, writes " Civil Society."

"Russia is a great country: there has never been democracy and freedom, Russia should always be surrounded by enemies, if it was not, it was invented, and so in the democratic league Russia lags behind fifty years." In any other league she may look good on the background of others, "he says.

At the same time Valenza admits that now Russia is changing, "like the whole world."

"It's just that it's doing it too slowly, Russia is a powerful state, and it can accelerate its movement towards democracy only if the whole world is solidarity. If the whole world were to be in solidarity, war would be avoided with Ukraine, but time was lost, spilled blood", - says the politician.

He also adds that, in his opinion, the world is approaching the era of intelligence and globalization.

"Its foundation is the equalization of values ​​and the opening of borders, and the sooner it will happen, the greater will be the benefit to all, so Putin's concept is a loser: he must understand that this is a path of great loss. If we want to accelerate the development of events, we must be solidarity"- says the politician.

A Russian student, who posted a video on putting ballots in the September 9 elections, disappeared

on Fri Sep 14, 2018 8:55 am
A Russian student, who posted a video on putting ballots in the September 9 elections, disappeared



Student of the Kalmyk State University Aisa Khulaev, who published a video on the ballot boxing on 9 September in the republican village of Primanich, disappeared.

As informs Censor.NET with reference to Lenta.ru, the "Caucasian Knot" reports.

"We know that she was intimidated, demanded some refutations from her," said Pavlo Manzhikov, a representative of the Kalmyk branch of "Fair Russia".

The party appealed to the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Prosecutor's Office of Kalmykia to ensure the safety of the girl.

According to him, he was last seen in the investigator's office, where he was summoned during a video check.

On the connection Hulaev ceased to go out on September 10, after which the number of her phone ceased to be served. According to the "Caucasian Knot", in high school, the girl was threatened with deduction.

On September 9, on a single day of voting in 80 regions of the country, Hulaeva published on YouTube a video on which a woman and a man in the presence of another woman in an enclosed room get a bundle of ballots from the bag and quickly throw them into a ballot box. The head of the Central Election Commission, Ella Pamfilova and the Regional Directorate of the Investigative Committee, began the incident investigation.

The claims of the Russian Orthodox Church on rule in Ukrainian religious matters are unfounded, and all threats are worthless, - Archbishop Telmisk Bishop Iov

on Fri Sep 14, 2018 8:59 am
The claims of the Russian Orthodox Church on rule in Ukrainian religious matters are unfounded, and all threats are worthless, - Archbishop Telmisk Bishop Iov



All the threats voiced by the church authorities of the Moscow Patriarchate, such as breaking the communion with Constantinople and attempts to intimidate the repetition of the great split on Orthodoxy and Catholicism, are worthless.

As Censor.NET informs with reference to ZN.UA, the Archbishop of Telmisian Bishop Iov (Hecha) told this in an interview with the publication Cerkvarium.

"To stop eucharistic communication is necessary for serious, dogmatic reasons and not from whimsy. As for the issue of schism and autocephaly in Ukraine, everyone knows that this problem is not a matter of theological nature, and there is no need to blame someone for heresy. Therefore, the threat is more abusive", - emphasized the bishop.

Archbishop Iov emphasized that the claims of the Russian Orthodox Church on the rule in Ukrainian religious matters are unfounded and meaningless, since Ukraine has always been an unconditional canonical territory of the Constantinople Patriarchate.

"When Ukraine is no longer part of the Russian Empire (and the Soviet Union), and when it lasts for almost 30 years the church split, through which millions of people are outside the canonical church and with which the Moscow Patriarchate is not able to cope up to this time, the Ecumenical Patriarchate It should be noted that it does not interfere in the affairs of a foreign national church, but operates in its canonical territory - in the territory of the Kievan Metropolitanate... Autocephaly of Ukraine is proposed by the Ecumenical Patriarchate not as a Roy to war, but as a medicine to heal the split in the church"- said Bishop.

Sending two exarchs of the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew to Ukraine will allow Ukraine to finally start a full-fledged process of acquiring autocephaly, Metropolitan Galskiy Emmanuel (Adamakis), a metropolitan of the West European exarchate, said the representative of the Constantinople Patriarchate. Adamakis added that the creation of a "local independent church" in Ukraine begins.

The Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate (UOC-MP) stated that it does not recognize a single Orthodox Church in Ukraine. The Moscow Patriarchate does not recognize autocephaly and will not be concelebrated with the new church.

Earlier it became known that the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew appointed exarchs to provide autocephaly to the Ukrainian Church.

Recall that on April 17, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko announced that he had decided to appeal to the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew with a request to give Tomas to the Ukrainian national autocephalous church.

On April 19, the Verkhovna Rada supported the address of President Poroshenko to the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew to grant the Ukrainian Orthodox Church an autocephaly.

Britain is proposing to strengthen the fight against money laundering

The National Crime Investigation Agency of Britain proposes to freeze funds and assets of persons suspected of unlawful enrichment or money laundering.

This is reported by "RBC-Ukraine" with reference to an interview with the head of the agency Donald Tuna.

According to him, London seeks to extend the operation of the arrest warrant to funds whose origin is not established (that is, there are doubts as to the lawfulness of acquiring these funds).

At present, the British authorities can confiscate assets from those owners who can not explain where they took the money to buy them. The agency also offers to freeze assets for which there is only a suspicion.

Previously, it was reported that Russian oligarchs kept about $47 billion in British offshore. The British government has ordered disclosure of owners of accounts in low tax jurisdictions by 2020.

This is Censor.NET reported in the press service of the National Security and Defense Council.

The statement said: "During the meeting, the interlocutors discussed issues of cybernetic and information aggression of the Russian Federation, paying attention to the experience of US experts and the work of Ukraine, which opposed several of the most powerful attacks on the part of Russia.

Turchynov noted that Ukraine has significantly strengthened its ability in cyber defense in a rather short time, and, according to experts, has reached the level of many European Union countries in this direction. At the same time, the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine added that "many issues remain unresolved, and that's why much more needs to be done to ensure a credible cyber defense of the country."

"Therefore, Ukraine is interested in active cooperation on this issue with our strategic partners," he said.

In his turn, J. Cohen noted that information and cyberattacks of the Russian Federation are directed "in three directions" - to the east of Ukraine, where the military operations continue, to the internal destabilization of our country, the destruction of its political system and the compromise of transparent and fair elections, as well as to discredit reputation of Ukraine in the world. "It was motivating us to come here," he said.

J. Cohen also spoke about the experience of US security agencies in the fight against information fake and new software developments in this direction.

The parties agreed on systematic cooperation in the issues of providing cyber defense and counteracting information aggression, in particular, external interference during the presidential and parliamentary election campaigns."

Parubiy discussed Volker's information and cyber threats from Russia's regarding upcoming election



On Friday, September 14, the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Andriy Parubiy met with Kurt Volcker, Special Representative of the United States Department of State for Ukraine.

Censor.NET informs about it, referring to the press service of the Verkhovna Rada.

"Ukraine often experiences information and cyberattacks on the part of Russia, so now, on the eve of the election, support and cooperation with the United States of America, who are very well aware of what Russian cyber attacks are, in particular, interference with the elections, is paramount," Parubiy said.

Volker noted that "the security of the elections is our common interest, therefore we actively co-operate with the Ukrainian authorities and non-governmental organizations in order to guarantee the security of the elections."

Parubiy also emphasized that the aspect of information security is important, "since in Ukraine there is a network of so-called mass media guided by an aggressor country, which in fact serve as a tool of Russian propaganda."

"As the Russian aggressor occupied part of the Ukrainian lands, the part of the information space of Ukraine is occupied as well," the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine summed up. In his turn, Kurt Volker expressed an understanding of the danger of the spread of Russian misinformation.

The Bellingcat and The Insider: suspected of poisoning violinists involved in intelligence services

The Bellingcat and The Insider: suspected of poisoning violinists involved in intelligence services

The joint investigation into the The Bellingcat and The Insider editions confirmed that British suspects in Russian poisoning by former intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter were involved in Russian intelligence services.

This was reported by The Bellingcat and The Insider on September 14th.

The investigation of the publications showed that the passport of one of the suspects, Alexander Petrov, was issued in 2009 and there are no references to the "previous life" in the dossier of the Federal Migration Service: registration of the address of residence or receipt of other passports. On a file with passport data of Petrova there is a stamp "Do not provide information".

Also, the passports of Petrova and Boshirova differ by one number - 1294 and 1297. Both were issued at the Moscow Office of Migration 770001 and, as the edition notes, "ordinary mortals do not receive passports there."

The publication also checked that other passports with similar numbers also belong to people "without biographies".

They also found that British suspects in the poisoning of the Violinists bought tickets the day before departure, although in their recent interview, they stated that they were preparing a train in advance.

The publication assumes that buying tickets the day before the release due to the fact that the same day, tickets to the plane bought a daughter ex-intelligence Russia Julia Skrypal.

The Bellingcat and The Insider announce the release of the full version of the investigation at the beginning of next week.

On September 5, British prosecutors called the Russian Sergei Skripal, former Russian intelligence officer and his daughter Julia, two Russians, Aleksandr Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, who were involved in poisoning .

Britain assures - these are intelligence officers.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said he was a civilian citizen, and in his biography "there is nothing criminal."

Russian TV channel Russia Today has published interviews with two men named Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshiriv. People with such names are suspected of a British investigation into the poisoning of former intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Julia, in Salisbury, in March 2018.

The investigation suggests that suspects could come to London not under the real names. Both men are about 40 years old. According to the police, on March 2 they entered the territory of Britain and two days later returned to Russia.

British Prime Minister May underlined that the British authorities would insist on extending the regime of sanctions imposed by the European Union against Russia.

The United States, France, Germany and Canada have come to terms with Britain that the Russian authorities "almost certainly" agreed on the poisoning of the former intelligence officer of the Russian Federation, Sergei Skripal.

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that information about the involvement of two Russians in poisoning in Britain of the former intelligence officer Sergei Skripal is "information manipulation".

Recall that 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.

In March 2018, a 66-year-old citizen of Russia, a former intelligence officer, Sergei Skrypal, went to a hospital with severe poisoning. With him was his daughter Julia.

Sergei Skripal is Colonel of Russian Military Intelligence in retirement. In 2006, he was sentenced to 13 years in prison for spying in favor of Britain. Russia stated that it had transmitted to London information about Russian secret agents in Europe. In 2010, a group of four Prisoner inmates exchanged 10 accused US espionage people. Subsequently, the violinist moved to live in Britain.

Providing Autocephaly to Ukraine: The Russian Orthodox Church has announced the withdrawal of structures under the chairmanship of Constantinople

Providing Autocephaly to Ukraine: The Russian Orthodox Church has announced the withdrawal of structures under the chairmanship of Constantinople



The Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) stopped participating in all the events and structures in which the Constantinople Patriarchate presided. This decision is the answer to the appointment by the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Exarchs (attorneys) in Kyiv to prepare for the provision of autocephaly to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.

This is stated in the statement of the Synod, which was held in Moscow on September 14.

The Russian Orthodox Church noted that they stop participating in bishops' assemblies, theological dialogues, commissions and other structures under the chairmanship of the Constantinople Patriarchate.

"In a critical situation, when the Constantinople party virtually refused to resolve issues through dialogue, the Moscow Patriarchate was forced to suspend the prayerful remembrance of Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople during worship and with deep regret to suspend the joint service with the hierarchs of the Patriarchate of Constantinople," the Russian Orthodox Church said.

This means that the patriarch of the ROC, Cyril, will no longer mention Bartholomew for worship, and the representatives of the ROC and the Patriarchate of Constantinople will not be able to work more in joint committees and conduct worship together. At the same time, the parishioners of both patriarchs can visit each other's churches.
