In the Kremlin, US decision to withdraw from a missile treaty as an intention to enter into an arms race

In the Kremlin, US decision to withdraw from a missile treaty as an intention to enter into an arms race

Moscow believes that the US decision to withdraw from the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range Mines (RSMD) is a manifestation of Washington's intention to enter an arms race

This was stated by the press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov, writes RBC.

"This is an extremely dangerous intent, that is, it is actually a declaration of intentions to enter an arms race, building up the appropriate weapons capabilities, and again, it will make the world more dangerous," Peskov emphasized.

According to the spokesman of the Kremlin, on the background of "such statements" in the Kremlin, "primarily think of the national interests of Russia and the security of the country."

Answering the question, whether it is possible in the Kremlin to continue the negotiations on the RSMD, Peskov replied that this is hardly possible. As understood in the Kremlin, the American side has made a decision and in the near future "formalizes the process of withdrawal from the treaty," he explained.

At the weekend, the US president announced his intention to withdraw from the Treaty on the Elimination of Medium and Low Range missiles. The agreement was signed by the former Soviet Union and the United States in 1987. The treaty was the first major step in establishing arms control, which ended the Cold War.

Strengthening the eastern flank of NATO can not happen without interacting with Ukraine, - Klimkin

Strengthening the eastern flank of NATO can not happen without interacting with Ukraine, - Klimkin



Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin has declared the expediency of consultations on strengthening the eastern flank of NATO to confront threats from Russia.

Reported Cenzor.NET with reference to Interfax-Ukraine.

"Strengthening the eastern flank of NATO can not take place without Ukraine, as we are fighting on the eastern flank today, Ukraine needs this flank to act as a single force. Already, we have to talk about how NATO can use its capabilities to counter the threat from Russia It should be the subject of consultations both bilaterally and with the United States, "Klimkin said in an interview with the Polish edition of Rzeczpospolita.

According to him, NATO's eastern flank can not exist without Poland, as well as without Ukraine.

"Therefore, we must jointly negotiate with NATO: Poland as a member of the North Atlantic Alliance, and Ukraine as the future. It is about establishing our future joint opportunities. We have to work more actively on this issue," the Foreign Minister said.

Asked about the worst relationship between Ukraine and Poland since the independence of the Ukrainian state, Klimkin said: "I think our relations are very good, but we have a heated debate about historical issues, but it is more emotional than political".

In his opinion, such a discussion does not affect other relations between Ukraine and Poland, in particular, political, economic and human.

We do not want a new Cold War, but Russia violates a missile treaty - Stoltenberg

We do not want a new Cold War, but Russia violates a missile treaty - Stoltenberg



It is the Russian Federation whose actions cast doubt on the effectiveness of the Treaty on the Elimination of Middle and Low Range missiles.

According to Censor.NET, referring to Ukrinform, on Wednesday, 24 October, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, responding to press questions about NATO's reaction to the US intention to withdraw from the treaty of the Red Army.

"DRSMD is really a key document, but the problem is that no deal can be effective and work if its rules are respected by only one of the parties, NATO Allies have already expressed concern about Russia's behavior, in particular, in the context of developing a new Russian missile. In the opinion of the Allies, this is evidence of Russia's violation of the Treaty, which prohibits the development of such new missiles, in particular, this issue was again violated at a meeting of NATO defense ministers in October this year, "Stoltenberg said.

"We do not want a new Cold War, we do not want a new arms race, but we are convinced that it is very important that Russia should stop the violation of the RCMD and carry it out in a transparent and proper manner," added Stoltenberg.

Earlier , US President Donald Trump announced the intention of the United States to withdraw from an agreement with Russia on medium-range missiles (RSMD). Trump emphasized that Russia violated the terms of this agreement, but did not go into details. In the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, his words were called a blackmail, emphasizing at the same time that they would not react to them.

An agreement between the USSR and the United States on the elimination of medium and short-range missiles was signed by Mikhail Gorbachev and Ronald Reagan in Washington DC on December 8, 1987, during the Soviet-American summit. Participants undertook not to produce, test, or deploy ground-based ballistic and cruise missiles of medium (1000-5,500 km) and small (500-1000 km) range.

Putin acknowledged that an attempt by power methods to change the Ukrainian government failed, - Butusov on Russia's sanctions

Putin acknowledged that an attempt by power methods to change the Ukrainian government failed, - Butusov on Russia's sanctions



Drawing up lists of undesirable individuals will lead to Ukraine's response. The society will understand that Russia does not want to be a partner of Ukraine, that the Russian Federation is aimed at a conflict. Thus, the circle of active anti-Russian politicians will be expanded.

This in his blog writes editor in chief Cenzor.NET Yuri Butusov.

"Bravo, the Kremlin, Putin acknowledged the victory of Ukraine in the war, what does the Russian sanctions mean against Ukraine?" Putin acknowledged that attempts to change the Ukrainian regime by power methods failed, Russia's policy in Ukraine was defeated, and for the United States, sanctions against the Russian Federation were an instrument of Putin's punishment by ruble. And Russia's sanctions against Ukraine mean the construction of an irresistible long-term barrier that will be higher and higher. The "hybrid" war is aimed at absorbing Ukraine, and sanctions are a rejection. Russia refuses to absorb Ukraine and begins to build confrontation with us as an independent state. So, this is fully consistent with the purposes and Ukrainian politics. So we stood in a hard struggle "- said the journalist.

"The Kremlin recognized that the Orthodox Church in Ukraine is a political issue, an instrument of Russian politics, and went into an open conflict, which will undoubtedly add to the additional political dynamics of the process of creating an independent and unified Ukrainian Orthodox Church. The breakdown of many existing economic ties, and a blockade of new projects of economic cooperation between Ukraine and Russia. Now the risks are very high, and our business will continue to curtail the activity in Russia, the Ukrainian economy will be hardened by rushing from Russia, and breaking ties at the initiative of the Russian Federation makes this process as large as possible", - said the chief editor of" Censor.NET".

"Making lists of individuals acting against the interests of the Russian Federation will immediately determine who has done enough to be considered a real enemy of the Kremlin world." Ukrainian patriot politicians will now be given an important line in the biography - whether there was a Russian sanctions? Creating lists of undesirable persons will lead to Ukraine's actions, and the community will understand that Russia does not want to be a partner of Ukraine, that Russia is aimed at a conflict, thus, the circle of active anti-Russian politicians will be expanded", - summarizes Butusov.

Recall that on October 22, President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on the application of special economic measures in connection with the unfriendly actions of Ukraine regarding the citizens and legal entities of Russia.

In the decree issued on the Kremlin website, the President issued a number of instructions "in response to unfriendly and contradictory international law, Ukraine's actions related to the introduction of restrictive measures against citizens and legal entities of the Russian Federation in order to protect the national interests of the Russian Federation".

Poroshenko was named guilty of rising gas prices due to the need to return to the IMF the debts of former PM Yulia Tymoshenko and Viktor Yanukovych

on Wed Oct 24, 2018 3:28 pm
Poroshenko was named guilty of rising gas prices due to the need to return to the IMF the debts of former PM Yulia Tymoshenko and Viktor Yanukovych

The decision of the Cabinet of Ministers on the need to raise gas prices is due to the need to return to the International Monetary Fund the debts of former Prime Ministers of Yulia Tymoshenko and Viktor Yanukovych.

This was stated by Artur Gerasimov, the head of the faction of the party "Petro Poroshenko Bloc".

He emphasized that rising gas tariffs are a strict requirement for continued cooperation with international financial institutions.

"The current state of the Ukrainian economy would allow us to get rid of borrowings, if not a rabid amount of old debts, which peak payments fall in 2019. The most committed to creating this debt hole are those political forces that today most strongly" protect "Ukrainians:" Motherland "and Opposition block", - he stressed.

"Yanukovych has added to this amount another $41 billion and at the time of his escape, the total amount of guaranteed public debt was $73 billion. The most horrible thing is that a significant part of these funds went to overpayment of Putin-Tymoshenko's bonded gas contracts," he added.

Gerasimov also reminded that the political decision on equalization of gas prices for Ukrainian mining and imported gas was approved by Tymoshenko on October 31, 2008, "when, as the Prime Minister of Ukraine, she signed her signature under the IMF memorandum."

At the same time, he noted that the Cabinet of Ministers decided to raise gas prices within its competence, and "the reaction of society is natural and understandable, since this decision is unpopular and painful."

He also added that the President of Ukraine asked the Cabinet of Ministers to increase the program of subsidies and increase the amount of funds allocated to it.

The court of the European Union has passed it - it does not contradict European laws.

"The court today decided that the relevant Austrian rules are compatible with EU law, which means that, since the EU laws are in this case enforced, the Austrian Supreme Court is not obliged to repeat the hearing of the cases of the persons concerned and, as a consequence, the Austrian authorities can continue to take actions for suspected offenses committed in Switzerland, "the spokesman for the European Union judiciary told journalists.

It is noted that after this decision, most likely, the process of extradition of Firtash in the USA will be launched.
