In 2019, Britain will transfer 800 troops to a new military base in northern Norway

on Mon Oct 01, 2018 1:49 pm
In 2019, Britain will transfer 800 troops to a new military base in northern Norway

This was stated by British Defense Minister Gavin Williamson in an interview with The Telegraph.

London is doing this as part of a "Arctic defense strategy" against Russia's threat.

In this way, London will react to the activity of Moscow in the Arctic region, which has grown in recent years.

In particular, Williamson pointed out that Russia has resumed work on military bases that have remained since the Soviet Union and increased the activity of submarines in the region to a level close to that which was during the Cold War. In this regard, the British authorities see the need to demonstrate their presence in the Arctic and defend their interests in the region, said the head of the United Kingdom's Ministry of Defense.

In addition to the British, the new military base will accommodate the troops of Norway, the United States and the Netherlands, said Williamson. In October and November, NATO's military training will be the largest ever since the Cold War.

They will be attended by 40,000 soldiers and officers from 30 Alliance countries and their partners, as well as 130 planes, 70 ships and more than 10,000 vehicles. During the maneuvers, a scenario of an invasion near the Norwegian coast will be worked out.

The Arctic covers the central part of the Arctic Ocean, its regional seas such as Barents, Kara and Chukotka, as well as the territories of Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, the Russian Federation, Sweden and the United States.

In the spring of 2017, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced that it would rebuild a network of polar airfields in the Arctic and build up military towns. Moscow also announced its intention to deploy two new C-400 "Triumph" anti-aircraft missile systems in the Arctic. In 2016, the construction of a large military base "Arctic shamrock" on the Land of Franz Joseph.

NATO says that Moscow is building a powerful army along the Arctic coast.
In Moscow, warns that military conflicts may occur in the region.

Putin understands that he will not be able to succeed in a military operation on land: but he expects success to be achieved during the elections, - Poroshenko

Putin understands that he will not be able to succeed in a military operation on land: but he expects success to be achieved during the elections, - Poroshenko



President Petro Poroshenko in an interview with the US CNN channel told about Russian attempts to undermine the situation inside Ukraine and, in particular, to influence the Ukrainian elections.

This is reported by Censor.NET with reference to the press service of the AP.

"Indeed, we have two dangers: the first danger is Putin: as President does not fight with anyone, I am opposed specifically to Putin, because Putin understands that the war on land - in the east of my country or in the Crimea during the last four years because we have created a strong and reliable army with the help of the United States of America, and I am really proud of the very effective cooperation with the Americans, British, Canadians, European advisers, "the President replied.

"He (Putin-Ed.) Understands that he will not be able to succeed in a military operation on land, but he expects that success can be achieved during the election, and on the contrary, he undermines stability in the middle of the country with the help of cyber attacks using technology fake news, or rather, the technology of misinformation. Russia spends billions on support for the Sputnik TV, Russia Today and many others, "said Petro Poroshenko. The head of state cited numerous examples of misinformation spread by Russia. Beginning with statements that Ukraine is not a Russian aggression, but a "civil war" and it is not Russia responsible for aggression, the accusations by the Ukrainian authorities of the thousands of victims of this war, as well as the denial of the presence of Russian troops in the occupied territory.

The president also reminded that the Russian authorities were forbidden from Russian social networks, because they were used by Russian intelligence agencies to conduct a disinformation and subversive campaign.

Kremlin-sponsored TV channel releases CCTV footage of terrorist Zakharchenko elimination. VIDEO

As reported by Censor.NET, Terrorists’ leader Zakharchenko was killed in a blast in Donetsk-based cafe on Aug. 31. So called "finance minister" of the self-proclaimed republic, Alexander Timofeev aka Tashkent, was also severely wounded in explosion.




Ukraine’s Security Service said Zakharchenko was killed as a result of either a power struggle among the terrorists or was eliminated by the Russian secret services.

The Russian Foreign Ministry, as is customary, said that it were the warmongers from among the Ukrainian authorities who were behind Zakharchenko’s assassination.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that this "provocation" was aimed at disrupting efforts to settle the conflict in the Donbas.

Britain's Foreign Secretary Hunt vows to close Russian espionage net in UK

on Mon Oct 01, 2018 2:08 pm
Britain's Foreign Secretary Hunt vows to close Russian espionage net in UK



UK's Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt says Britain was "going to close the net on the GRU".

"Under the Conservatives Britain has a simple message for the Kremlin: If you try to intimidate this country, if you use chemical weapons, if you don’t play by the international rules, the price will always be too high," he told the governing Conservative Party’s annual conference, Censor.NET reports citing Reuters.

Hunt also said Britain was "going to close the net on the GRU".

As reported, Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal, 67, and daughter Yulia Skripal, 34, were hospitalized in critical condition after they were found unconscious on a bench in the Wiltshire city on March 4 but both have recovered after weeks in the hospital. The UK government says they were poisoned with a nerve agent of a type developed by Russia called Novichok and PM Theresa May said she believed Moscow was "culpable."

A couple who authorities said found the perfume bottle after it was discarded by the attackers fared worse: Charlie Rowley recovered after treatment in the hospital but his partner, Dawn Sturgess, 44, died on July 8.

In an interview to the state-funded RT, Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, the two Russians charged with perpetrating nerve agent attack in British Salisbury have claimed they were visiting the town's "famous" cathedral as tourists.

Petrov and Boshirov have been charged with attempting to murder of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury in March by spraying Novichok nerve agent on the handle of their door. Scotland Yard have said these names are probably aliases.

A UK government spokesman rubbished the men's claims as "obfuscation and lies", while John Glen, the Conservative MP for Salisbury and South Wiltshire, called the statements "not credible".

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Russia knew the real identity of two men accused by British prosecutors of trying to murder Skripals and that they were civilians with nothing criminal about them.

Russia adamantly denies involvement in the poisoning, which had added to severe strains in ties between Russia and the West.

Putin's declaration came seven days after British authorities announced that they had charged two Russian men, identified as Aleksandr Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, with carrying out the poisioning on March 4.

They accused the pair of smuggling the Soviet-designed nerve agent Novichok into Britain in a fake perfume flask and smearing some of the substance on the front door of Sergei Skripal's home in the English city of Salisbury, where the former GRU officer settled after being sent to the West in a Cold War-style spy swap in 2010.

The conflict that has been sparked by Russia in the east of Ukraine has made Ukraine one of the most mundane countries in the world, "the statement said.

The embassy added that the Russian Federation should insist that its proteges in eastern Ukraine reduce their threats.

"Homeless children deserve a peaceful and safe childhood. Ukrainians are suffering from Russian aggression, "said the US diplomatic mission.

"Gazprom" wants to cancel the decision of the Stockholm arbitration in the appeal. But now its implementation continues, - the head of the department of "Naftogaz" Teklyuk

on Mon Oct 01, 2018 2:17 pm
"Gazprom" wants to cancel the decision of the Stockholm arbitration in the appeal. But now its implementation continues, - the head of the department of "Naftogaz" Teklyuk



Russian monopolist Gazprom at the Swedish Court of Appeal is trying to cancel the decision of the Stockholm Arbitration, under which he is obliged to pay Ukraine nearly $ 2.6 billion. Lawyers of "Naftogaz" consider their position as strong and ready to substantiate it.

This was in an interview with Censor.NET said the head of the legal department of NJSC "Naftogaz" Yaroslav Teklyuk.

"The decision of international arbitration can not be challenged on the merits, but can only be abolished in connection with gross violations of the procedure in making an arbitration award. One of the arguments of the Russians is that the decision was allegedly not written by the arbitrators themselves, but with the participation of the secretary. they are now trying to argue that when contracts were signed in 2009, it was a package, and as a result of these agreements, there was a certain "balance of economic interests": one party earns on the sale of gas, while the other is on transit. lovamy as a result of arbitration decisions that balance was broken. That is not true. There is no "balance" has never been, and that "Gazprom", was "balance," like selling Ukraine gas at much more expensive market, with the payment for transit services carried out at a level below the market. In addition, Gazprom almost never fulfilled its obligations to provide transit volumes, causing additional losses to Naftogaz, because Naftogaz, under the terms of a transit contract, had to keep the gas transportation system ready to transport the maximum volumes provided for by the contract (110 billion cubic meters per year), which provided for constant investments in the system in order to maintain its efficiency at a high level", - he explained.

According to Teklyuk, at this stage it is difficult to talk about the prospects of appeals. There is a complaint to Gazprom at the Swedish Court of Appeal.

"We consider our position to be strong, Gazprom's arguments are unfounded. However, it should be remembered that on the other hand, there are a lot of professional, intelligent and expensive lawyers working to maximize their position. By the way, the expenses of Gazprom for legal and related services, in connection with arbitration, is significantly higher than Naftogaz.

If they prove that there were procedural violations, then the cancellation of the arbitral award will go away. In this case, we will return to 2014, which means that we will need to once again understand this issue,"- said the lawyer.

At the moment, arbitration is in force, and its execution is executed for charging from Gazprom almost $2.6 billion dollars:

"The peculiarity of the arbitral award is that it came into force on the date it was issued. Gazprom has appealed to the court, and the court has ordered a temporary suspension of enforcement of this decision on the territory of Sweden, and this decision was subsequently canceled. all the performance that we have started in other jurisdictions.Today, we are executing in the UK, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and we plan to implement in a much larger number of jurisdictions.

The fulfillment is that we need to get $2.6 billion from Gazprom. Theoretically, they can be voluntarily paid, although, based on their statements, it is unlikely. Therefore, the task is, firstly, to identify their assets in different jurisdictions (including money). Next, arrest these assets. Then reverse charge the assets and get either money from the sale of these assets or assets."

"And the third important thing is that we are looking for an opportunity to acquire an air defense system because there is a threat of massive air strikes by Russia, and in this case Putin and Russia should understand what high price they will pay in case of a decision on the crossing of another red line and attacks on my territory", - said Poroshenko.

Poroshenko serves Russia - Tymoshenko

on Mon Oct 01, 2018 3:02 pm
Poroshenko serves Russia - Tymoshenko

During the conciliation council in the Verkhovna Rada, confrontations between the head of the "Batkivshchyna" Yulia Tymoshenko and the head of the BPP faction Arthur Gerasimov, as well as the first vice-speaker Irina Gerashchenko, took place.

This is reported by the parliamentary correspondent of Censor.NET.



"It seems to me very important that we do not turn to personal offenses when it comes to the meanings, not to remind anyone who worked until 2014, because after 2014 the only person who had direct contact with the militants in Donetsk and Lugansk regions and took their weapons to destroy the peaceful Kyiv - this was the first number of "Motherland" Nadiya Savchenko", - said the first vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Iryna Gerashchenko.

"I want to remind Mrs. Iryna that Savchenko was awarded the Order of the Hero of Ukraine, Mr. Poroshenko, and that she had taken her from Russia, Iryna Gerashchenko. Moreover, Iryna Gerashchenko, who has a patriot, flees for some reason not a patriot to the Russian Federation. who shout more loudly about patriotism, including the Minister of Economy of the Government of Yanukovych Poroshenko, will actually surrender Ukraine to the fullest. I think that all these facts will be brought to the country after the people correctly remove them from the authorities. Look for the fifth column Moscow in the administration of the President and", - retorted Tymoshenko.

Earlier on the conciliatory council also there was a riot between the leader of the Batkivshchyna and the head of the faction BPP Arthur Gerasimov, who said that the initiative of Tymoshenko to eliminate Naftogaz coincides with the interests of the Kremlin. Gerasimov also suggested that Tymoshenko is trying to block talks with Europeans in order to give Putin the necessary time for the construction of the North Stream-2.

"These two statements are lacking in experience, or they are not written in Ukraine," Gerasimov inquired.

Tymoshenko replied: "Gerasimov read from his own" Temnik "sheet and devoted 90% of his" Temnik "to discrediting my name.... This suggests that Poroshenko was determined with the main opponent in the elections. You, dear friends, after 6 months of political end."

According to her, Gerasimov's adviser is a terrorist Besler (Bevz).

"And Arthur Gerasimov will teach us how to love Ukraine, along with Poroshenko, who trades with Russia, who serves Russia and is covered with patriotism," summed up Tymoshenko.

Filaret: Russian Church is a daughter-in-law church, not a mother, a Ukrainian church

on Mon Oct 01, 2018 3:19 pm
Filaret: Russian Church is a daughter-in-law church, not a mother, a Ukrainian church



The head of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate (UOC-KP) Filaret recalled that it was the Russian Church (or rather, even Moscow - Russia was not yet) at one time separated from the Kyivan Metropolitanate, which was the canonical territory of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

According to Censor.NET, in the interview to Channel 5, the head of the UOC-KP said that the documents that have the Ecumenical Patriarchate undermine the Kremlin myth that the Ukrainian Orthodox Church is allegedly derived from Russian.

According to him, in fact, on the contrary, it is Kiev, from the church point of view, that it is the maternal church for Moscow, and not vice versa.

"The Russian Church separated from the Kyivan Metropolis, and the Kyivan Metropolitanate was part of the Constantinople Patriarchate, that is, it means that we, the Ukrainian Church, are the daughter of the Church of the Constantinople Patriarchate, and the Russian Church is a daughter church, a daughter and not a mother of the Ukrainian Church," - said Filaret.

Ukraine now has a Ukrainian Orthodox Church, which is a self-governing unit of the canonically recognized Orthodox world of the Russian Orthodox Church, as well as the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate and the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church, which have not yet been recognized as canonical. Recently, the Patriarchate of Constantinople, also known as the Ecumenical Patriarchate, is actively preparing to provide Tomos (the church decree) on canonical autocephaly for the Single Local Ukrainian Orthodox Church - which still needs to be created. The UOC-KP, the UAOC and part of the UOC-MP, which supports the idea of ​​the independence of the Ukrainian Church from Moscow, are believed to be united in such a church, but expects the canonical approval of such independence. In the Orthodox world, according to tradition, it is the Ecumenical Patriarchate that has exclusive authority to recognize autocephaly of new local churches. Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew has already stated that the process leading to the recognition of the local Ukrainian church is irreversible. Moscow, as well as the UOC-MP, subordinated to it, are strongly opposed and express their claims to Ukraine as "their canonical territory". The Ecumenical Patriarchate recently unveiled a selection of historical documents that must challenge these claims, reminiscent of Crimea. Reales.

The Russian Orthodox Church itself existed as a non-canonical within 141 years after the unauthorized withdrawal from the subordination of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in 1448, when it expelled the canonically appointed Metropolitan and set up its own, and until 1589, when the Ecumenical Patriarch Jeremia II was virtually forced to be recognized canonical autocephaly of the Russian Church and the creation of the Moscow Patriarchate.

And in 1686 the Ecumenical Patriarch Dionysius IV and the Cathedral of the Bishops in Constantinople issued Tomos (a letter) on the transfer of the Kyivan Metropolitanate, which was part of the Patriarchate of Constantinople, to the subordination of the Moscow Patriarchate. This was due to pressure and generous gifts from Moscow. Within a few weeks, the Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate for this act of mzdoomstva- "simonyi" removed Dionysius IV from the patriarchal throne, but did not revoke the decision on the Kievan Metropolitanate.

Since then, the Ecumenical Patriarchate has repeatedly spoken of violations of the canonical order during the events of 1686, but did not abolish the decision to re-subdivide the Kievan Metropolitanate. Recently, in the Patriarchate of Constantinople, attention was drawn to the fact that then it was primarily about the administrative subdivision, but with the preservation of the Kyivan Metropolitanate as part of the canonical territory of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. The fact that the Kievan Metropolitanate actually was part of the Russian Church, in Constantinople, was considered the following days: "The Moscow Patriarchate violated the rules of the Patriarchal and Synodal Act of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in 1686, and these violations of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, due to the difficult conditions in which he acted, was compelled endure and silence, but did not forget and did not forgive."

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 Local 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.

On September 7, it became known that the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew appointed exarchs to provide autocephaly to the Ukrainian Church.

Tomos to be received by newly elected head of single local Ukrainian church, - Patriarch Filaret





Head of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate, Filaret, says a new head of the Church will be the one to receive the tomos – the decree of the Ecumenical Patriarch on granting autocephaly to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.

"The head of the Ukrainian [Orthodox] Church will be elected at an Unifying Council, which will include 41 bishops of the Kyiv Patriarchate, 12 bishops of the Autocephalous Church, and 10 bishops of the Moscow Patriarchate," Filaret told Ukrainian TV Channel 5 on Sept. 30, Censor.NET reports citing UNIAN.

He noted that the head of the single local church would be elected at the Unifying Council as soon as Constantinople takes a decision on granting autocephaly to Ukraine.

Hierarchs on Sept. 2 held meetings (Synaxis) of the Hierarchy of the Ecumenical Throne Constantinople (Istanbul, Turkey) to confirm that the Church of Constantinople is authorized, without the consent of other churches, to grant autonomy, or autocephaly, to a church that has requested it. This paves the way for autocephaly of Ukraine's church. Further measures, such as the adoption of documents at the Synod, are expected to be taken in October.

On April 17, 2018, President Poroshenko said Ukraine was closer than ever before to creating an autocephalous united local church.

Pursuant to the instruction of Poroshenko, on April 20, Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration of Ukraine Rostyslav Pavlenko visited Istanbul and handed over to His All-Holiness, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew the Appeal of the President of Ukraine on granting the Tomos of Autocephaly to the Orthodox Church in Ukraine.

He also handed over the Verkhovna Rada’s resolution on the support for the President’s Appeal to the Ecumenical Patriarch.

Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew also received the appeals of the hierarchs of the Ukrainian Orthodox churches on granting the Tomos of Autocephaly to the Orthodox Church in Ukraine.

The Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Constantinople has already begun the procedure needed to grant autocephaly to the new Ukrainian church. The meeting of the Synod, which will address this issue, is scheduled for October.

Recently, as part of preparations for the provision of autocephaly to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, the Ecumenical Patriarchate appointed Archbishop Daniel of Pamphilon from the United States and Bishop Ilarion of Edmonton from Canada as its exarchs in Kyiv.

If Budapest fails to recall its Berehove-based consul, Kyiv to put end to his activities in Zakarpattia on its own, - Foreign Ministry



In case if the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs fails to recall its consul from the village of Berehove (the Zakarpattia region), the Ukrainian government is going to suggest him leave the country.

"Ukraine’s position has always been consistent and clear. The Ukrainian government was the one that offered its Hungarian counterparts to recall Berehove-based consul in connection with the violation of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and Ukrainian laws. If they fail to recall [the consul], we are going to make a decision on our own that he must leave the territory Ukraine and stop its activities in Ukraine," spokesperson for the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry Mariana Betsa Monday told Interfax-Ukraine, Censor.NET reports.

Ukrainian media earlier reported about the issuance of Hungarian passports to Ukrainian citizens at the Hungarian consulate in the town of Berehove in Ukraine's Zakarpattia region. A video was posted showing Ukrainians getting Hungarian passports and taking an oath calling Hungary their homeland.

The entry of international partners will make it impossible for any implementation of Putin's plans for the Ukrainian GTS, Parubiuy[

The entry of international partners will make it impossible for any implementation of Putin's plans for the Ukrainian GTS, Parubiuy



The Verkhovna Rada should develop a law on the protection of state information security.

Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Andriy Parubiy announced this at a briefing after the conciliation council, according to the parliamentary correspondent of Censor.NET.

"I consider it very important to involve reputable international partners in the management of the Ukrainian GTS. Recently, during my official visit to the United States, I had talks with the most powerful US energy companies in order to become part of the Ukrainian GTS management. I believe this is one of the key decisions that affect not only energy, but also all spheres of security in Ukraine, since joint management of the GTS will allow Ukraine to get strong strong investments", - said Parubiy.

According to Parubiy, this issue is related to the North Stream 2 project, given that the United States is one of the most critical critics of this project.

"I am convinced that when powerful US energy companies are our partners in the management of the GTS, this will make our strategic partners even more consistent and rigorous," he said.

According to the speaker, the entry of such partners in the management of the GTS will further make it impossible for any implementation of Putin's plans to manage the Ukrainian GTS.
