"PACE: these days decide whether parliamentarians from all over Europe are willing to voluntarily destroy their capabilities under the influence of the Secretary General of the Council of Europe, which lobbies for the elimination of the entire sanction system at the request of the Russian Federation, will leave the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe as it was conceived by the founders of the Council of Europe 70 years ago If the plan for the pro-Russian lobby works, it will not be long before the celebration in Moscow of the destruction of the organization, which is intended to protect democracy, the rule of law and human rights, all that is hostile to the Kremlin, the Ukrainian delegation will rely on This is a scenario in every way, and once the Council of Europe helped Ukraine build a democratic society, today it is our turn to help the Council of Europe not lose its principles and reputation, "he wrote.

The Russians disagree with our version of the placement of peacekeepers in the Donbass, but have not yet offered any alternatives themselves, - Volker

The Russians disagree with our version of the placement of peacekeepers in the Donbass, but have not yet offered any alternatives themselves, - Volker

Special Representative of the US Department of State Kurt Volker is counting on a new meeting with the assistant to the President of the Russian Federation, Vladislav Surkov.
He stated this in an interview with "Public TB Donbas", informs Censor.NET.

"We are writing with Surkov about the content of this meeting. We have proposed the deployment of a UN peacekeeping mission that would guarantee security in the occupied territory and create conditions for the Minsk agreements to be implemented, namely local elections, amnesty, etc," Volker said.

The Special Representative of the State Department noted that the Russian side did not agree to the proposal, so he asked for their proposals. He also asked for a meeting for discussion.

"If we meet, this will be a very fruitful discussion, but we are still in talks and have not yet agreed on a new meeting." Russians do not agree with the proposals we have made, but have not yet offered any options themselves, "Volker added.

Recall that on September 5, Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed the opinion that the presence of UN peacekeepers in the Donbas would be in favor of resolving the conflict in eastern Ukraine, and instructed the RF Ministry of Foreign Affairs to make a corresponding draft resolution for consideration by the UN Security Council.

On September 20, Poroshenko, speaking at a UN Security Council meeting, said that Ukraine "needed a UN peacekeeping arm" and urged the Secretary General to send an evaluation mission to Ukraine.

Iryna Gerashchenko, First Deputy Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, a representative of Ukraine in the Trilateral Contact Group on the Situation on the Donbas, said that the introduction of a UN peacekeeping mission on the line of collision in the east of Ukraine could not be the language, peacekeepers should be introduced to the entire territory occupied by Russia .

In numerous statements of the Russian authorities, it was stressed that peacekeepers should be placed only on the line of separation of the warring parties, but not on the entire occupied territory of the Donbas and especially not on the Russian-Ukrainian border. On January 29, 2018, US Special Envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker stated that Russia was ready to ensure that the United Nations peacekeeping mission in the Donbas was deployed not only on the line of collision, but throughout the Donbas.

April 13, I President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that more than forty countries are ready to take part in a peacekeeping operation in the occupied territory of Donbas.

Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin in September told that the resolution on the United Nations peacekeeping mission for the Donbas has already been prepared by Ukraine and its western partners . It contains 3 components: peacekeepers themselves, police forces and international administration.

According to Igor Guskov, the head of the SBU apparatus, Censor.NET reports, in an interview with Ukrainian News.

He noted that the SBU handed over to the Western secret services information about the mercenaries of the Russian private military company "Wagner".

"I believe that this knowledge, which we passed on to our colleagues from the United States, played a role in making a decision on the task of a bombing attack (on Russian mercenaries, Ed.) In Syria on February 7, 2018. Why? Because we eat them have shown who these people are, as they are secretly killing. Therefore, I think that our American colleagues, having received such information, properly arranged their armed forces. Plus, psychologically, it was even easier for them, because they realized that they were not colleagues from the Russian army and even not mercenaries, but secret killers", - said Guskov.

He noted that as a result of the US military strike near Deir Ez-Zor, 82 Russian mercenaries were killed.

The SBU unveiled personal data of all 206 Wagner fighters who participated in that battle.

As reported by Cenzor.NET, on the night of February 7 to 8, US troops destroyed a number of Russian mercenaries by a number, according to various estimates, from 300 to 500 people , with tanks, artillery and light armored vehicles, aimed at capturing oil fields in the area. Syrian Deir Ez-Zorah.

The EU expects the immediate release of Sentsov and all Ukrainians illegally detained in Russia and the occupied Crimea



The European Union expresses its solidarity with Oleg Sentsov and, besides his prompt and appropriate treatment, expects an immediate release along with all illegally detained Ukrainian citizens in Russia and the Crimean peninsula.

This is stated in a statement by the Speaker of the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Maya Kosyanchic, reports Censor.NET with reference to the website of the European Union.

The document states that Oleg Sentsov was imprisoned for actions allegedly committed on the territory of the Crimea illegally occupied by Russia, which is why the EU considers the case "a violation of international law and elementary standards of justice".

"Oleg Sentsov demonstrated incredible courage, determination and dedication during the 145 days of hunger strike, whose health has now worsened to a critical condition. By refusing to provide him with proper medical treatment at a hospital, the authorities of the Russian Federation violated his human rights as well as his obligations in the field. human rights under international law, in particular the measure of the European Court of Human Rights of July 25 this year, "says Kosyanchych.

Recall that on May 16, 2018, lawyer Oleg Sentsov 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. Sentsov, 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. Oleg sent me a letter through a lawyer, he almost does not get up. He wrote that the end is close, and he is not about dismissal," - wrote N.Kaplan on his Facebook page.

After that, L. Denisova turned to Russian colleague Tetyana Moskalkova and chairman of the Council for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights under the Russian President Mikhail Fedotov asking them to discuss any conditions for the exchange of Ukrainian director for his salvation. The Ukrainian ombudsman emphasized that the situation with O. Sentsov calls for an immediate response in view of the deterioration in his health due to the prolonged hunger strike.

In early September 2018, Sentsov handed over his unfinished films and scripts from Crimea to his colleagues.

On September 18, the Verkhovna Rada appealed to the Norwegian Nobel Committee, offering a candidate for a Ukrainian filmmaker, a political prisoner, Oleg Sentsov to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. For the corresponding decree No. 9040, 245 deputies voted.

October 5, lawyer Dmitry Dinze, representing Sentsov's interests, washed away that his client would stop the hunger strike on October 6.

Oleg Sentsov called it "a forced measure because of the threat of forced feeding." Attorney Dmitry Dinze and sister Sentsova Natalia Kaplan reported that the convicted director began to decompose the liver and can refuse the kidneys. According to Russian doctors, Sentsov may not survive the hunger strike.

End of Sentsov's hunger strike means he is in critical condition, Ukraines' ombudsperson says

on Mon Oct 08, 2018 2:26 pm
End of Sentsov's hunger strike means he is in critical condition, Ukraines' ombudsperson says



Ukraine's Human Rights Commissioner, Liudmyla Denisova says Oleh Sentsov has stopped his nearly five-month hunger strike.

"Oleh Sentsov has stopped his hunger strike. This means that he is in critical condition. Russia, only verbally, without any medical certificates, assured us that his physical condition was satisfactory. It's not true. They would not have 'persuaded' him into stopping his hunger strike and would not have exerted psychological pressure on him. A person with such goals, with such will, devotion and a sincere Ukrainian position, could not give up," Denisova wrote on social media, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrinform.

She noted that the process of ending the hunger strike is even more complicated and worse than the hunger strike itself. "I am deeply convinced that Russia does not provide him with proper medical care. I have demanded earlier that he be provided with highly qualified specialists, but the Kremlin has never done it," she said.

Denisova called on Russia "to preserve the life of the Ukrainian" and "to provide him with the best independent medical specialists who will conduct his full medical checkup."

"I want to see the conclusion about Oleh Sentsov's health. Only professional nutritionists have to work out a scheme for bringing him out of the hunger strike. We can bring these doctors from Ukraine or Europe. I demand that Russia speed up the process of granting me access to Oleh Sentsov. I have to personally make sure that nothing endangers his life. If necessary, I will come to the Labytnangi colony even today, "she said.

Sentsov is serving a sentence in the maximum security labor camp in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District. This prison's inmates are serving sentences for commission of grave and especially grave crimes.

Sentsov was detained by the Russian FSB Security Service in Russian-occupied Crimea in 2014 together with activist Oleksandr Kolchenko. They were brought to Russia and tried in a trumped-up case on charges of organizing acts of terror and arson on the peninsula. On Aug. 25, 2015, Sentsov and Kolchenko were sentenced to 20 years and 10 years in prison respectively.

Latvian special services announced that Russian GRU repeatedly attacked the cyberspace of the country

The Bureau for the Defense of Satrsme (Constitution) of Latvia reported that the Russian Intelligence Agency of the GRU repeatedly attacked the cyberspace of the country.

This is reported by DELFI with reference to the statement of the Latvian special services.

According to the Bureau of Defense of Self-Defense (BZS), Russian hackers attacked for intelligence purposes, in particular for receiving private correspondence and documents.

It is noted that for the most part, the purpose of hackers was the Latvian state authorities, in particular the defense sector, but sometimes the GRU also attacked private companies and media.

According to the bios, hackers used a phishing method - the spy sent an email to the victim.

The Stsluzhba expressed confidence that behind these attacks is a group of hackers of the GRU, which is responsible for cyber attacks against the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), etc.

At the same time, the department emphasized that no foreign special services were trying to influence the elections in Latvia.

Let's remind, on October, 5th in large-scale hacker attacks of the Russian Federation accused Germany.

Earlier, the United States accused 7 Russians of organizing hacker attacks on anti-doping organizations. It is about the employees of the Main Intelligence Agency of Russia (GRU). According to the American investigation, they also involved US-led attacks, the Westinghouse energy company and the Chemical Weapons Ban Treaty.

Four of the seven named US Russians were previously accused of hacking attacks in the Netherlands . They reported that they were caught by Russians back in April when they tried to break the network of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons in The Hague, which studied the poisoning of the former intelligence officer Sergei Skrypal. At the same time they were sent back to Moscow.

The Netherlands named the names of Russians. These are Alexei Moronets, Yevhen Serebryakov, Oleg Sotnikov and Alexey Minin. In the United States the same names were named , also in the list of Ivan Ermakov, Artem Malyshev, Dmitri Badin.

Subsequently, Canada also accused Russia of hacking attacks.

Recall, the Netherlands accused the Russian Federation of attempting to steal the investigation into the MH17 disaster . Also, on October 4, Britain accused Russia of military intelligence in cyber-attacks all over the world .

It was also reported that Germany and Britain could impose new sanctions against Russia through cyber attacks.

According to the Sunday Times, Britain sees the possibility of a cyberattack against Russia in the event of a series of aggressive actions by the Kremlin.

The Russian Federation Council called the British accusations of cyberattacks a new informational attack and added that it would be "a brick in the building of the wall of the new Cold War against Russia."

In February 2018, The Washington Post reported that Russian spies had hacked an attack on the 2018 Olympics during the Games opening ceremony.

Russian athletes competed at the Winter Olympics -2018 under a neutral flag. Such restrictions were introduced for the country after the doping scandal.

"The Polish side is convinced that it is worth taking this step," - Moravetsky about US sanctions against North Stream-2



Poland hopes the United States will impose sanctions against North Stream-2.

This was announced by Prime Minister Mateusz Moravetsky, reports RMF24, reports Censor.NET with a link to zn.ua.

"I am negotiating this topic (from the USA - Ed.) They are continuing, and the Polish side is convinced that it is worth taking this step. I think that by the end of the year everything will become clear on this issue," he said.

Also read: "Nord Stream-2" are ready to launch on January 1, 2020

North Stream 2 has to transport about 55 billion cubic meters of Russian gas annually from Russia to Germany via the Baltic Sea.

The transit of Russian gas through the Ukrainian GTS is one of the largest items of export of Ukrainian services. Every year he brings Ukraine billions of dollars in income. In 2018, revenues from Russian gas transit surpassed Ukrainian gas imports by $0.7 billion.

Loss of transit by Ukraine will mean a loss of a significant part of currency earnings. According to calculations of the Ministry of Finance, only direct losses can amount to 2.5-3% of Ukraine's GDP.

In addition, opponents of the project, including Ukraine, Poland, Moldova, the Baltic States, the United States and Denmark, argue that North Stream 2 will increase EU dependence on Gazprom. Now the Russian monopolist supplies about a third of the total volume of gas used in Europe.
