The chances of changing the Kremlin's position are now lower than a year ago - Volker

The chances of changing the Kremlin's position are now lower than a year ago - Volker



The US diplomatic efforts on the settlement of the Donbas had many real achievements that allowed the conflict to be properly interpreted, but there are fundamental things that could not be changed, such as the imperial approaches of Russia.

US Special Envoy on Negotiations on Ukraine Kurt Volker spoke on Thursday during a speech at the Atlantic Council in Washington, Cenzor.NET, referring to Ukrinform , reports .

"Speaking about changes, we first of all changed the language (wording, terms - ed.) About what is really happening," the American diplomat said.

As an example, he pointed out that the blurred term "uncontrolled territories (Ukrainian - ed.) By the government" was at least inaccurate.

In this regard, Volker emphasized that Russia should not be condemned because of the "territory controlled by Ukraine" and "the territory under the control of Russia". "In fact, one needs to be very clear in the wording," Volker stressed.

He also noted that "Russia 100% controls the command of the military forces that occupy the Donbas."

In addition, among his achievements Volker called the position of the United States and European partners in maintaining and increasing the pressure of sanctions on Russia because of its armed aggression. In this regard, he stressed that such a trend will continue to remain.

Another achievement that brought real results is the US decision to provide Ukraine with lethal weapons, including anti-tank missiles, sniper systems. "But what we have not done - we did not influence the decision-making process by President Putin and Russia," he said.

In this context, the Special Representative of the United States expressed an assessment that the chances to change the Kremlin's position are now lower than even a year ago.

He explained that Russia is waiting for the results of the elections in Ukraine as new political opportunities for influence on the situation. "I think we must stay on the current path. I believe that the sanctions really affect, and we see evidence in Russia," Volker remarked.

He expressed confidence that consistent pressure would force Moscow to genuinely resolve the situation in eastern Ukraine.

Unacceptable for US allies in Central Europe to support such projects as North Stream-2, the State Department

Unacceptable for US allies in Central Europe to support such projects as North Stream-2, the State Department



US Assistant Secretary of State for Europe and Eurasia Wess Mitchell said that support for the European countries of the North Stream-2 is unacceptable.

As Censor.NET informs with reference to the "Correspondent", he stated this on Thursday, speaking at a conference in the Atlantic Council in Washington.

"Western Europeans can not deepen energy dependence on the same Russia that the US protects, or to enrich themselves from Iran, which develops ballistic missiles that threaten Europe. It is unacceptable for the US Allies in Central Europe to support projects such as the North Stream 2" , - underlined the assistant of the secretary of state.

Earlier it was reported that Germany has no intention to give way to US pressure, which call for the refusal of the construction of the North Stream 2 gas pipeline.

It should be noted that permits for the laying of a new gas pipeline on the bottom of the Baltic Sea in their exclusive economic zone were issued by Germany, Sweden and Finland. To date, only Denmark has postponed the issue.

Recall that US President Donald Trump has said that North Stream 2 is unfavorable for German residents who pay billions of dollars for Russian energy.

He noted that now in Ukraine there are almost 7 million households receiving housing subsidies.

In addition, Muzichenko said, about 3 thousand families receive help for the poor, as well as almost 400 thousand women - to help single mothers.

"Generally speaking, if we describe the system of social benefits or social assistance, then the budget for 2018 will cover the corresponding expenditures of almost 130 billion hryvnias," Muzychenko said.

According to him, about half of this amount is the cost of providing privileges and housing subsidies.

Migrants from so-called safe countries of origin are more likely to be expelled from Germany in the event of refusal to grant asylum, their asylum applications are dealt with expeditiously.

The German government plans to expand the list of countries in this category. In July, it was decided to list Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco and Georgia. Now it is planned to be replenished by such countries as Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Cuba, Colombia, Vietnam, Tanzania, Pakistan, India, Kenya, Benin, Guinea-Bissau, Central African Republic and Chad.

The Russian Orthodox Church urged parishioners not to dislike: Once Bartholomew dies, everything will return to normal



Russian Orthodox believers and all sympathizers of the Russian Church should not despair, despite the fact that overcoming the church split, caused by the actions of Constantinople, is not possible in the immediate historical perspective.

As informs Censor.NET with reference to "New Day", with such an assertion was made by the rector of the temple of the martyr Tatiana at the Moscow State University archpriest Volodymyr Vygylyansky.

"But then the split got worse, they repented and returned." During the life of Patriarch Bartholomew, I do not think there are such chances, but as soon as he dies, I think everything will be normal, this is connected with his personality and with the political The context is known: his relationship with America was known, and in Turkey for decades he was holding back with the support of the American presidents. All that is happening is connected with great geopolitics, "Vigiliansky judged.

Recall that in January, Bartholomew will be 79 years old.

On September 14, an official statement was passed to the extraordinary Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church in Moscow, in which it was said that in the event of the continuation of the "anticononical activity of the Constantinople Patriarchate in the territory of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, the Russian Orthodox Church" will be compelled "to break the Eucharistic communion.
