Hackers got access to US State Department employees' personal information

on Tue Sep 18, 2018 9:45 am
Hackers got access to US State Department employees' personal information



U.S. Department of State informed its employees that it had recently suffered a breach of its unclassified email system while the compromise exposed the personal information of a small number of employees.

The agency described the incident as "activity of concern… affecting less than 1 percent of employee inboxes" in a Sept. 7 alert that was shared with Politico and confirmed by two U.S. officials, Censor.NET reports

"We have determined that certain employees’ personally identifiable information (PII) may have been exposed," the alert said. "We have notified those employees."

The classified email system was not affected, according to the alert, which was marked "Sensitive But Unclassified."

Watchdog reports have consistently dinged State for its insufficient cybersecurity protections, and last week a bipartisan group of senators asked Secretary of State Mike Pompeo how the department was responding. The secretary has yet to respond to the senators' letter.

Following the email breach, the department convened a task force to examine the incident, according to a U.S. official, who requested anonymity to discuss a security matter.

The State Department confirmed the breach of its cloud-hosted email service in a statement to Politico. "This is an ongoing investigation and we are working with partner agencies, as well as the private sector service provider, to conduct a full assessment," spokeswoman Nicole Thompson said in an email.

The sources who spoke to POLITICO did not say whether the department had identified the hackers behind the breach.

The State Department has always been a top target for hackers, especially those working for foreign governments. One of the most famous cybersecurity incidents in U.S. government history occurred in late 2014, when the NSA and Russian hackers battled for control of State Department servers.

Federal officials told CNN months later that it was the "worst ever" breach of a federal agency. The same Russian hackers also hit the email systems of the White House and the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Trump ordered to declassify the FBI documents on Russia's interference in American elections

Trump ordered to declassify the FBI documents on Russia's interference in American elections

US President Donald Trump ordered to declassify a series of documents related to the investigation of alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US election.

According to censor.NET, referring to Interfax-Ukraine, the Washington-based media reported on Tuesday.

In particular, it refers to all the text messages relating to this topic, written by James Comey during the time he was in charge of the FBI. Messages that are written by some other officials will also be posted. The US administration will also publish a secret part of a request by the FBI to start tracking a former employee of the election headquarters, Carter Page.

A White House spokeswoman, Sarah Sanders, explained that such a decision was made to ensure transparency, as well as in response to requests from congressmen.

Recall that the US Department of Justice reported that 12 Russian intelligence officers have been charged with hacking computer networks of US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's Democratic Party in 2016 and the US Democratic Party.

"The guilt for the downed Russian plane and the death of the crew lies entirely on the Israeli side," - Shoigu



Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, in a telephone conversation with his Israeli counterpart Avigdor Lieberman, said that the blame for the Russian-bound Il-20 aircraft over the Mediterranean Sea lies entirely in Israel.

As informs Censor.NET with reference to TASS , about it on Tuesday informed journalists in the Ministry of Defense of.

"The guilt for the downed Russian plane and the death of the crew lies entirely on the Israeli side," - said the Russian minister. According to him, the RF Ministry of Defense through the channels of interaction has repeatedly called on the Israeli side to refrain from attacks on the territory of Syria, which pose a threat to the security of Russian servicemen.

Shoigu said that as a result of the irresponsible actions of the Israeli Air Force, "despite the existing arrangements for preventing dangerous incidents," a tragedy took the lives of 15 Russian servicemen.

"The command of the Russian group of troops (forces) was announced only in one minute before the strike by the Israeli F-16," he said.

"The actions of the Israeli military department do not correspond to the spirit of the Russian-Israeli partnership, and we reserve the right to take further steps in response," the Russian minister emphasized.

Earlier in the Russian Ministry of Defense reported that on September 17, around 23:00 Moscow time, upon returning to the air base Khmeimym over the Mediterranean Sea 35 kilometers from the coast of Syria disappeared contact with the crew of the Russian aircraft IL-20. It was clarified that "IL-20 mark on radar of aviation management disappeared during the attack of four Israeli F-16 aircraft on Syrian facilities in the province of Latakia."

Later, in the Russian military department , it was noted that the plane was shot down by an air defense system in Syria. Covering IL-20, Israeli pilots set it under fire at the S-200 complex, reported in the Russian Ministry of Defense. It was noted that the Israeli aviation control and F-16 pilots "could not miss the Russian plane, since it had landed at a height of 5 km." However, they deliberately went on this provocation, said the Russian Defense Ministry's official representative, Major-General Igor Konashenkov, noting that Russia regarded Israel's actions as hostile.

Israel has blamed Syria for knocking out a Russian military aircraft

Israel has blamed Syria for knocking out a Russian military aircraft

Israel has responded to Russia's accusations of the downfall of the Il-20 military aircraft near Syria and declared it to be fully responsible for the disaster for Bashar al-Assad's regime.

This was announced in the Israeli army, reports Jerusalem Post.

"Israel deplores the deaths of the crew of a Russian aircraft that was shot down by Syrian air systems," the Israeli side said.

The country's forces pledged full responsibility for knocking down the Russian airplane on the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

His presence in the sky over Syria at that time, Israel explained that the air force attacked one of the Syrian posts, which had to transfer weapons from Iran to the Hezbollah supported by the Islamic movement.

Late in the evening of September 17, the Russian military aircraft Il-20 with 14 military aboard disappeared over the Mediterranean Sea , 35 kilometers from the coast of Syria. The Ministry of Defense of Russia acknowledged that the plane had destroyed the anti-aircraft systems of the Federal Republic of Syria, but "subjected him to a plane struck by Israel." Officially in the Ministry of Defense of Russia reported the death of 15 military personnel .

Later, in Russia, they claimed that they reserve the right to "respond appropriately" . The Israeli embassy in Russia refused to comment on the statements of the RF Ministry of Defense regarding involvement in the assassination of the aircraft.

From the water raised the fragments of the shot down plane. The RF Ministry of Defense said that the place falls - 27 kilometers west of the village of Banias Syrian province of Latakia.

In the Kremlin, they reacted to shoot down Syrian military aircraft Il-20 and promised to "analyze the situation." Also, the Kremlin agreed with the statement of the Ministry of Defense of Russia that the Russian plane was shot down allegedly because of Israel's actions.

The Israeli Ambassador was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia.

Russian military aircraft shot down in Syria by pro-Assad forces, Moscow blames Israel for putting it in line of fire

on Tue Sep 18, 2018 9:55 am
Russian military aircraft shot down in Syria by pro-Assad forces, Moscow blames Israel for putting it in line of fire



The Russian military said Tuesday that the Russian maritime patrol aircraft was shot by Syrian regime anti-aircraft artillery amid the Israeli attack on Monday.

Moscow blamed Israel for putting its aircraft in the line of fire, Censor.NET reports citing CNN.

"As a result of the irresponsible actions of the Israeli military, 15 Russian servicemen were killed, which is absolutely not in keeping with the spirit of Russian-Israeli partnership," said Russian Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov, spokesperson for the Russian military, Russian state news agency RIA-Novosti reported.

A US official with knowledge of the incident said Monday that the Syrians were trying to stop a barrage of Israeli missiles when the Russian aircraft was hit. A second official confirmed that Israel was responsible for the missile strikes on Syria.

Russian state news agency TASS reported that a Russian IL-20 military aircraft disappeared over the Mediterranean on Monday. TASS, citing the Russian defense ministry, said the aircraft went off the radars during an attack by four Israeli F-16 aircraft on Syrian targets in the province of Latakia, where Russia has based much of its military presence, including aircraft.

The Russian military said Israel notified the Russian side about the planned operation only a minute in advance, and that Israeli controllers would have seen the Russian plane, which was coming in to land, RIA reported.

The US found out about the incident because Syrian forces broadcast an emergency search and rescue radio call on an international frequency. The US then got a direct message from another country about the type of aircraft and circumstances of the incident.

The US official with knowledge of the incident would not identify that country, but it is likely that Russia is the only nation that would know exactly what type of aircraft was shot down.

A spokesman for the Pentagon told CNN that the missiles were not fired by the US military but would not speak as to who was behind the strikes.

The aircraft was shot down by an anti-aircraft system the Russians sold to the Syrians several years ago, the US official said. The Syrian air defense network in western Syria is very densely populated with anti-aircraft missile and radar systems.

According to Censor.NET, referring to TASS, Igor Konashenkov, the official representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, told reporters on Tuesday.

"Covering the Russian plane, Israeli pilots fired him under fire from Syria's air defense systems, and as a result Il-20, whose effective reflecting surface was an order of magnitude larger than that of the F-16, was shot down by the missile of the C-200 complex," the general said.

According to the Russian general, Israeli aircraft deliberately created a dangerous situation for surface ships and aircraft in the area.

"Bombing was carried out near the location of the French frigate Auvergne and in the immediate vicinity of the aircraft IL-20 PKC Russia, which came to land," - said Konashenkov.

The official spokesman for the Russian military said that the Israeli aviation control and F-16 pilots "could not miss the Russian plane because it was approaching a 5km altitude." "Nevertheless, they deliberately went on this provocation," he said.

Konashenkov also said that the planned operation of Israel did not warn the command of the Russian grouping of troops in Syria. "On the" hot line "the message came in less than one minute before the blow, which prevented the Russian plane from being taken to a safe area," he added.

Russia regarded Israel's actions as hostile and reserves the right to respond in response. "We regard these provocative actions of Israel as hostile. As a result of the irresponsible actions of the Israeli military, 15 Russian soldiers were killed, which completely does not correspond to the spirit of the Russian-Israeli partnership," the general said.

Russian bank complained to Poroshenko on sanctions: requests talks

on Tue Sep 18, 2018 10:37 am
Russian bank complained to Poroshenko on sanctions: requests talks

Russian Vnesheconombank sent letter to Petro Poroshenko, President of Ukraine, Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin, head of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade Stepan Kubiv and NBU Head Yakov Smolii with a request for talks on sanctions and arrest of Prominvestbank shares VEB

This is reported by the Russian edition of Kommersant.

In a letter dated September 14, Russian state corporation states that Ukraine has violated the agreement on mutual protection of investments made with Russia from 1998, and offers "to immediately contact and enter into negotiations on a friendly settlement of the dispute." In the opinion of the Russian enterprise, Ukraine, since 2014, "renders actions that are internationally unlawful."

Thus, VEB considers it to be 43 actions against PIB departments and another 37 - against ATMs in 2017, organized by the Ukrainian state, and argues that they led to a "critical deterioration of the bank's economic situation": PIB was removed from the securities market, the bank was not able to remit funds in favor related persons (for example, to return interbank loans received from VEB). From March 2017, Ukrainian state-owned enterprises are prohibited from placing in PIB funds.

In addition, the largest debtor of the bank - PJSC "Ukrzaliznytsya" - received loans for $ 153 million, which, according to the Russian financial institution, overdue for more than 3 years. Since Ukzaliznytsia owns the Ukrainian government, VEB believes that the state encourages non-repayment of bank loans.

Also, the letter refers to the arrest of shares of PIB by the decision of the Kiev Arbitration Court. The Hague Arbitration in May issued a decision on a lawsuit against 19 companies against Russia, which may be linked to the former owner of Privatbank Igor Kolomoisky, having awarded claimants about $ 130 million in compensation for loss of real estate in the Crimea. The Kyiv Appeal Court arrested PIB shares as well as Ukrainian "daughters" of Russian "Sberbank" and VTB under this decision.

VEB calls this decision the "illegal expropriation of investments", which devalued "to zero" the cost of VEB-eligible shares of PIB, which on March 1, 2014 cost $ 2.27 billion. At the end of the letter, VEB warns of liability for violation of the 1998 agreement in the form of compensation for costs and losses of investors, as well as interest payments.

Senior Vice President of VEB Igor Krasnov told Kommersant that the amount of compensation will be determined during negotiations with Ukraine, and if they do not produce results, the Russian bank will appeal to the Stockholm arbitration

Russian experts disagreed about the relevance of this letter: some consider the referral to the 1998 agreement logical, since Ukraine has appealed to the agreement in the dispute in The Hague, others argue that this argument is not groundbreaking.

"If we analyze all the circumstances of what has happened then it becomes clear that there was no violation. It is about sanctions, and statements about indirect expropriation are attracted," said the representative of the interests of the Russian Federation in the international association PraeLegal, Alim Bishenov.

At the same time, experts agree that international authorities are unlikely to support VEB.

"Ukraine has blocked assets in the implementation of the decision of the international court. From this point of view, it is governed by international law," explains FMG Group's partner Mykola Kolenchuk.

After publication by "Kommersantom" material, the press service of the VEB sent a comment stating that the bank should not be responsible for actions committed by the Russian state.

"It should be understood that the Arbitration Court in The Hague considered a case where the defendant was a Russian Federation and not financial institutions whose shares were arrested by an arbitration award in Kyiv. VEB, as a nonprofit organization, has no party and is not the property of the Russian Federation, nor is it financially responsible for the obligations of the Russian Federation according to the law and the principles of international law", - said Igor Krasnov.

In March 2018, the NBU, in pursuance of the decision of the Council of National Security and Defense of Ukraine "On the Application of Personal Special Economic and Other Restrictive Measures (Sanctions)", extended sanctions against Russian Sberbank PJSC, PJSC Prominvestbank, PJSC VTB Bank, PJSC "BM Bank".

The missile that knocked down the MH17 never had a "Ukrainian residence permit", former deputy head of the General Staff Romanenko

on Tue Sep 18, 2018 10:42 am
The missile that knocked down the MH17 never had a "Ukrainian residence permit", former deputy head of the General Staff Romanenko



The fact that the missile, which once owned the UAF in the Malaysian "Boeing" MH17 flight in 2014, is another lie by Russian propagandists.

As informs censor.NET, the former Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces (2006-2010) told Igor Romanenko, the lieutenant-general of the reserve, in a comment to Ukrinform.

"Armed forces of the Armed Forces have raised the documents and inventory acts of the Stryi Air Defense Regiment since 1991. No then, nor during the inventory that was carried out after this date, such a missile was not registered. Based on available documents, we can state: in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, missiles The "Buk" complex with the serial number referred to by the Russian side was not. Accordingly, it did not enter and could not enter the list of arms that was transferred to Georgia within the framework of the bilateral military-technical cooperation icons", - Romanenko emphasized.

He reminded that immediately after the tragic events related to the disaster of the MN-17, Ukraine declared at the highest political level its readiness to participate in the international investigation and transmitted all available material to the Netherlands, which played a leading role in this investigation.

Romanenko expressed his conviction that the documents submitted by the Russian side were forged and are in line with other "official" versions of the Russian Federation in its attempts to shift responsibility to Ukraine - either the testimony of the "Spanish manager" or "satellite photographs" of the Ukrainian airplanes with a football field size.

"We fully recognize the results of the investigation conducted by the international community headed by the Netherlands, and over the course of four years there has been a large amount of material and evidence base there. We participated in this investigation and are prepared to continue to provide the investigators with any additional information that will help us to establish The Russians once again spread fake information, once again try to avoid responsibility for their crime, "added the military expert.

Recall that on September 17 in the Russian Defense Ministry announced that the rocket that killed the Malaysian "Boeing" of the MH-17 flight on the Donbass in 2014 was made at the Dolgoprudnin enterprise in Moscow suburbs in 1986 and that year was supposedly sent To the military unit located in Ukraine. In Ukraine these statements of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation named the next fairy.

Recall that the Boeing 777 aircraft of the Malaysian Airways, which traveled from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, was shot down July 17, 2014 in the Toreza area (Donetsk region). As a result of the fall, 298 people died.

Censor.NET repeatedly reported on the investigation of the causes of the Boeing disaster of the MH17 flight, and also unveiled exclusive hangar photos and photographs of the elements of "Buk-M1-2", which appear in the materials of the criminal case. The prosecutor's offices in the Netherlands and Australia have prepared a very convincing evidence base. In particular, it was found that the elements that struck Boeing exactly coincided with the filling of the combat part of the most recent Russian anti-aircraft missile "BUK-M1-2". The "BUK-M-1-2" complex was developed in 1997 and put into service in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in 1998 and was never delivered to Ukraine. Also, independent experts from Germany, England and Poland, studied fragment fragments and made their point: it is part of the Russian missile "BUK". The modern chemical examination absolutely accurately established the composition of the metal, discovered the particles of the material of the sheath and the glass of the destroyed liner, which pierced these elements before striking people.

In November 2015, President Poroshenko during his visit to the Netherlands stated that Ukraine is using membership in the UN Security Council to investigate the Boeing tragedy of the MN-17 flight.

In May 2016, the Australian law firm LHD filed a lawsuit against Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin in the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) on behalf of the relatives of the Boeing victims of the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17, shot down on July 17, 2014 over uncontrolled territories of eastern Ukraine parts of the country. The lawsuit, in which RF and V. Putin are identified as defendants and who claim compensation of $10 million for each passenger, was filed on May 9.

Last autumn, the International Investigation Team (JIT *) presented the findings that the Malaysian "Boeing" was shot down by the "ground-air" missile from the "BUK" installation, which fired from the area of ​​the Donbas town of Snizhne (which at that time was under the control of the DPR") The investigation team is represented by five countries: Malaysia, the Netherlands, Belgium, Australia, Ukraine. Russia refused to participate in the joint investigation of the group.

On May 24, the International Joint Investigation Team informed that the MH17 flight over the occupied Donbas area on July 17, 2014 was shot down by the BUK missile system, which belongs to the 53rd Air Defense Forces missile defense unit of the Russian Army, which is stationed in Kursk.

Putin says everyone to notice steps to be taken in response to Russian aircraft downing



Moscow is going to bolster security measures to protect Syria-based Russian military personnel and facilities following IL-20 aircraft downing by Israel.

President Vladimir Putin of Russia told a press conference after talks with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, Censor.NET reports referring to Interfax news agency.

"We are going to take steps that will not go unnoticed," he said.

The Russian president said IL-20 downing cannot be compared with bringing down Russian Su-24 by the Turkish Air Force in November 2015. "It's a different situation after all," the president said. He stressed that "the Turkish fighter deliberately shot down our aircraft then."

"This case is rather seems to be a tragic chain of accidents because the Israeli fighter did not shoot down our aircraft," Putin said.

The president added that the Russian Defense Ministry’s statement blaming Israel of the IL-20 downing in Syria was coordinated with him.

On Sept. 17, Russian state news agency TASS reported that a Russian IL-20 military aircraft disappeared over the Mediterranean on Monday. TASS, citing the Russian defense ministry, said the aircraft went off the radars during an attack by four Israeli F-16 aircraft on Syrian targets in the province of Latakia, where Russia has based much of its military presence, including aircraft.

The Russian military later said that the Russian maritime patrol aircraft was shot by Syrian regime anti-aircraft artillery amid the Israeli attack.
