Adviser to the US Defense Ministry warns of the West about the "flexibility" of the troops of Russia

Adviser to the US Defense Ministry warns of the West about the "flexibility" of the troops of Russia

Strategic Advis3r to the US Defense Ministry from the United States, retired General John Abizeyd warns that the Russian hybrid war is a threat not only for Ukraine, Georgia or Syria, but also for other countries of the world.

He said this during a speech in New York on September 22-23 at an event devoted to the memory of an attempt by Ukraine in 1918 to gain independence, Kyivpost reports.

"They (the Russian military - Ed.) Have shown since the invasion of Ukraine a great deal of flexibility that the West needs to realize. We must understand that a hybrid war is not just a danger to the people of Georgia, the people of Syria and the people of Ukraine, it can strike on the periphery of NATO in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and elsewhere, "Abizayed said.

He stressed that such a method of warfare does not set the main force, but uses all the weapons of war with the help of protagonists, reinforcing them with air defense, cyber-war, and propaganda.

As you know, since June 2016, John Abizeed has led a group of foreign advisers to strengthen Ukraine's defense capabilities and reform of the security and defense sector in line with NATO standards.

As reported, the Pentagon's budget of $250 million for Ukraine was signed by Trump.

Moldova in the UN called on Russia to immediately withdraw troops from Transnistria

on Sat Sep 29, 2018 12:35 pm
Moldova in the UN called on Russia to immediately withdraw troops from Transnistria



Military exercises conducted by Russian servicemen on the territory of Transnistria are a destabilizing factor and gross violation of international law.

According to Censor.NET, referring to Ukrinform, Prime Minister of Moldova Pavel Philip said in a speech to the UN General Assembly.

"The military exercises conducted by Russian servicemen in conjunction with illegal military units of the unrecognized Transdnistria are a destabilizing factor and gross violation of the Ceasefire Agreement and the principles of a peaceful settlement of the Transnistrian conflict, signed in Moscow in 1992. We again call on the Russian Federation to immediately start the withdrawal of its troops and weapons from the territory of our country in strict accordance with the resolution of the OSCE Istanbul Summit in 1999," - said the Moldovan prime minister.

The head of the Moldovan government thanked the leaders of the states that supported the adoption in early summer of the resolution of the UN General Assembly on the complete and unconditional withdrawal of Russian troops and armaments from the territory of the Transnistrian region of Moldova.

According to Pavel Philip, the complete withdrawal of Russian troops and armaments will contribute to the speedy settlement of the Transnistrian conflict and the unification of the country.

"Moldovan authorities are determined to find a political solution to this issue on the principles of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country as part of the negotiations on the Transnistrian settlement in the format "5 + 2" and with the granting of the special status of the Transnistrian region as part of a single and indivisible Moldovan state," said Philip.

Earlier this summer, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution stating that the presence of Russian troops on the territory of Moldova contravened the norms of international law and constitutional neutrality of the country.

Recall that an operational group of Russian troops (about 1,400 troops) is stationed in the territory of the unrecognized Transnistrian region, and over 20,000 tons of ammunition are stored in the military bases of the Kolbasa village of Rybnitsky district.

"Liquidating Naftogaz as an intermediary" - "This will allow Gazprom not to pay Ukraine $ 2.6 billion": Vitrenko and Tymoshenko argue about the liquidation of NAK

on Sat Sep 29, 2018 12:40 pm
"Liquidating Naftogaz as an intermediary" - "This will allow Gazprom not to pay Ukraine $2.6 billion": Vitrenko and Tymoshenko argue about the liquidation of NAK



Elimination of Naftogaz will allow Gazprom not to pay Ukraine $2.6 bln, with interest in the already lost transit business, and also jeopardize the reliability of gas supplies to Ukrainian consumers and increase its own production.

As Censor.NET reports, Yuriy Vitrenko, the commercial director of Naftogaz, wrote to the Facebook page, responding to Tymoshenko's recent statements about the need to liquidate Naftogaz. We give him the full text.

"For JVT and its supporters: the liquidation of Naftogaz will allow Gazprom not to pay Naftogaz $ 2.6 billion with interest in Gazprom's already transit business, and also to avoid the risk of losing Naftogaz and in a new arbitration case, where our additional requirements already exceed $12 billion.

As it relates to contractual relations between the two companies, Naftogaz and Gazprom, the liquidation of Naftogaz will not allow Ukraine to get this money from Gazprom.

Elimination of Naftogaz will also jeopardize the reliability of gas supplies to Ukrainian consumers and increase its own production.

It is precisely in order that the reliability of gas supplies to consumers and the development of its own resource base does not depend on the "mercy" of other countries and create national companies such as Naftogaz..."- wrote Vitrenko.

Recall, Batkivshchyna Party leader Yulia Tymoshenko announced at a press conference in Kiev on Friday that she intends to liquidate NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine after the presidential election, Interfax-Ukraine reported.

Six months later, six months later, the first thing we do is to liquidate NJSC Naftogaz as an unnecessary intermediary, and if NJSC Naftogaz establishes other intermediary structures, and now it plans to do so for the sale of natural gas to Ukrainians ... All this will be eliminated,"- said Tymoshenko.

The politician also criticized Naftogaz's initiative to sell 49% of Ukraine's gas transportation system (GTS).

"In order to build the same gas transmission system, you need to spend $300 billion. This is the estimated amount in today's prices, taking into account gas storage ... They are about to get almost half the ownership of the GTS in 20 times cheaper, about what they estimate at $7 billion", - said the leader of the" Batkivshchyna", calling such an idea" a century's affair."

Tymoshenko also said that if the sale of 49% of the GTS will take place, after the presidential election this decision will be canceled.

In addition, she thinks the trick is to assert that the Ukrainian gas transportation system will remain without the necessary volumes of gas transportation. In her opinion, such a development of the situation can prevent a rapid increase in the production of Ukrainian gas.

"The first thing we will do is expand the natural gas extraction after the presidential election, fully provide our Ukrainian natural gas and will partially fill our gas transportation system and export gas to the EU," the politician said.

Russia is about to "swallow" the neighbor of Ukraine: the main signs are named

Russia is about to "swallow" the neighbor of Ukraine: the main signs are named

Russian President Vladimir Putin intends to unite Russia and Belarus, since he loses his influence, but wants to stay in power longer.

This is reported by the newspaper " Fakty", referring to the words of a political expert, analyst Democracy house Anatoly Oktitsyuk.

"The unification of Belarus and Russia is not far off, and it is quite real. This is more needed for Putin than Lukashenko, in the first place - in order to remove the internal tensions in his country, imprisoned by sanctions, and, moreover, as the recent results of the governorate elections, Putin slowly begins to lose influence in the regions where opposition is coming to power. The Kremlin just needs "another victory", which will be spoken by all Russian mass media, and the absorption of Belarus can just become the same victory, while they understand in Russia if they will go for another attraction of foreign territories, it can cost them very much. Again sanctions ... Why, if you can swallow your weaker neighbor by joining with him?"- says Oktysiuk.

According to the expert, Lukashenko, of course, is afraid of losing independence. But, it seems, he will have no other way out, except to go for an agreement with Putin. In Moscow, there are many ways to force a "bunch" to unite. The main one is economic. For example, Russia is currently building a nuclear power plant in Belarus. But in recent years there have actually been no work there. The Kremlin clearly makes it clear: while Lukashenko will remain president, no nuclear power plant should be expected.

There are also other signals that suggest plans to unite the two countries. The Kremlin refuses to issue another Belarusian loan. Lukashenko said that he needs a billion dollars. In Russia they said: sorry, we are in a difficult situation. Most likely, these were just excuse. Further. Russia has reduced the supply of petroleum products to Belarusians to a minimum. And this is one third of budget revenues. By the way, from Russian crude oil, Belarus made aviation fuel and sold it to us.

As the analyst has told, there is one more reason Putin has started this unification: he does not like the fact that Lukashenko began to flirt with Belarusian nationalists.

"Watch, now the translation of all documentation into the state language begins. The speakers and TV and radio broadcasters are increasingly moving to Belarus, having patented their brand - a national vyshyvanku.In addition, football ultras recently activated, which use anti-Russian screams during the matches. Sometimes in Belarus, the influence of Russian culture and the Russian language is getting less and less. Lukashenko has also started to look more and more often at the West. It is clear that Putin does not like this situation. austerity neighbor", - said Anatoly Oktitsyuk.

Also, the expert stressed that the main reason - Putin wants to stay in power as long as possible. But he has already made it clear that the third consecutive term of the presidency - will not pass and the State Duma will not support him.

"What should be done in such a situation, in order to remain, in fact, an eternal president?" So, this idea lies on the surface. Lukashenko himself once expressed himself, but soon realized that he would not receive support from the outside of his country as the head of the united he would not become the state, so the president of Belarus refused this idea, and Putin thought: and this is for him a real chance to become the head of state for the fifth time! After the unification of Belarus with Russia, a new country will emerge, which means that it will be possible to nullify the Constitution and go back to the presidential election Say it will be only the first time", - concluded Oktysyuk.

In my opinion, modern Hungary is a satellite of the Russian Federation, and it tries to solve its internal problems (as well as Russians) through external conquests. First of all, to produce and provoke the situation in Transcarpathia, Beregovo and so on, that is, where the Hungarians live compactly, "he explained.

The violinist exposed Russian agents in four NATO countries

on Sat Sep 29, 2018 12:56 pm
The violinist exposed Russian agents in four NATO countries

Former employee of the GRU of Russia, Sergey Skrypal, helped the four security services of NATO member countries by 2017 - except for the British MI-6, for whose cooperation he was captured in Russia, as well as the Estonian, Czech and Spanish special services

This is reported by the influential German edition Focus, with reference to high-ranking staff members of the Joint NATO Counter-Intelligence Command (ACCI) in Brussels.

"Poisoned in March this year, a former Russian double agent, Sergei Skripal, according to Focus, had worked for 4 NATO special services until 2017, while he" surrendered "some of the active spies of the Russian military intelligence to the GRU," the statement said.

It is noted that Sergei Skripal was captured in Russia in 2004 for cooperation with the British intelligence service MI-6 and in 2010 was released as a result of the exchange. From that time he and his daughter lived in Salisbury in the south of England.

"In 2012, a violinist, accompanied by MI-6 employees, traveled to Prague and informed the local security services of an active Russian agent network. Some agents in Moscow, according to Focus, knew the violinist since his service," the statement said.

According to the media, in the summer of 2016, the Violinist provided the Estonian intelligence service in Tallinn with such precise information as "three Moscow intelligence spies were immediately exposed." Among them, in particular, was an officer of the Estonian Army and his father.

In addition, "extremely relevant" information was provided by Sergei Skripal and the Spanish special service CNI. "According to Focus, the issue comes from the criminal contacts of the Russian mafia in the Costa del Sol region to influential politicians and officials in Moscow," the statement said.

Analysts of NATO do not rule out that the reason for the assassination attempt on Sergei Skripal was precisely his actions to expose Russian agents to Western special services.

As it was reported, former GRU officer Sergey Skripal and his daughter Julia were found unconscious in Salisbury and got into a hospital with poisoning with an unknown substance on March 5. The substance was identified as "Newborn".

In the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons came to the conclusion that the British authorities correctly identified the substance that was poisoned by the Violinists, and confirmed the Russian origin "Novyachka."

On September 5, the British Prosecutor's Office named the names of two Russians suspected of attempting an attempt on the Fiddlers. According to Prime Minister Teresa May, the British intelligence found that the suspects were Aleksandr Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov (data from the passports for which they arrived in London) - the GRU officers.

Earlier, The Bellingcat and The Insider conducted a joint investigation, the results of which suggest that Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, whom the UK suspects of the Violinist poisoning, are actually members of Russian intelligence services. They also managed to identify the person "Ruslan Boshirov" - he was Colonel GRU and "hero of Russia" Anatoly Chepiga.

-As it was reported, on March 5, in Salsbere, Russian ex-intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter became ill at the mall, after which they were hospitalized with poisoning with an unknown substance. After the poisoning of Violinist and his daughter, the head of the British government announced the deportation of 23 Russian diplomats .
-In Britain, they named the names of Russians suspected of poisoning the Violinist. Teresa May announced that they are officers of Russian military intelligence.

-On September 12, Russian President Vladimir Putin said they found suspects in the poisoning of the Violinist and that "there is nothing special or criminal" in them.

-And already on September 13, RT said they had interviewed Petrova and Boshirova. In particular, they said that they went to Salisbury for tourist purposes. According to Petrova and Boshirova, they have allegedly never heard of the Violinist, and generally work in the fitness industry.

-Subsequently, the Bellingcat research group and The Insider published a part of the investigation on Petrova and Boshirova. It turned out that in the dossier of the Federal Migration Service there is no data on the previous passports of Petrova, who received the document in 2009. Usually this information about the holders of passports is there.

-Ruslan Boshirov, who is suspected of poisoning violinists, is the pseudonym of Colonel Anatoli Chepigi, Chief Intelligence Directorate of the Russian Ministry of Defense.

"Sentsov correction of treatment was carried out": A photo of a Ukrainian from hospital was published

The Office of the Federal Penitentiary Service of the Russian Federation in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug has published a photo of the convicted Ukrainian director Oleg Sentsov from the hospital.

As Censor.NET reports, the corresponding photo is published  on the site of the Russian department.

"On September 28, 2018, the convicted Oleg Sentsov was taken to the Labitnang Municipal Hospital, where he carried out additional investigations and received consultations of specialist doctors. Based on the results of the survey, Oleg Sentsov made a correction of treatment," the report said.



On May 16, 2018, lawyer Oleg Sentsova said that his client May 14 declared an endless hunger strike. Thus, Sentsov demands the release of all Ukrainian political prisoners who are in Russian prisons.

On August 8, sister O. Sentsova, Natalia Kaplan, reported that he continues to starve in the Russian colony, almost does not get up. "Everything is not just bad, everything is disastrously bad.
