Putin threatened the world with non-existent weapons: laughing in the network

Putin threatened the world with non-existent weapons: laughing in the network

The network laughs at the confusion of Russian President Vladimir Putin, who said that Russia would create weapons that have no analogues in the world, but earlier he said that it was already ready.

According to Putin, promising weapons samples will soon be ready for batch production. This is reported by the Russian Ministry of Education and Science.

As the Russian president stated on Friday, October 26, "Russia does not threaten anyone, we strictly adhere to our obligations in the field of international security and arms control, we are always open for constructive partnership work in the interests of stability. the duty to do everything necessary for reliable protection of the Motherland, protection against any potential threats".

He added that the Russian Army and Navy will continue to modernize.

"Many of them will soon be ready for mass production, with their tactical and technical characteristics, they are significantly ahead of foreign developments, and some simply do not have analogues," Putin said.

The network immediately spotted the inaccuracy in the words of the president. Some users perceived this with humor, because earlier Putin said that such a weapon in Russia already exists. But other such words were outraged and they reminded of the small salaries of Russians and their life in general.

US media outlet deletes text about absence of Russian military in Donbas from interview with OSCE's Hug

on Fri Oct 26, 2018 3:11 pm
US media outlet deletes text about absence of Russian military in Donbas from interview with OSCE's Hug



Foreign Policy, the U.S.-based ezine that published an interview with outgoing Principal Deputy Chief Monitor of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to Ukraine Alexander Hug on Oct. 25, 2018 has removed a portion of the interview in which Hug said the OSCE's mission did not detect evidence of Russian interference in Donbas.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Interfax-Ukraine, the ezine later released a correction.

"Correction: …Hug stated that OSCE had not seen direct evidence of Russian involvement in eastern Ukraine. We have removed this remark, as it did not convey his intended view. He goes on to cite facts and observations that his monitors have recorded," the ezine said.

Hug said in the interview with the Foreign Policy that the OSCE SMM observers saw people with identification marks of the Russian Federation in Donbas, adding, "But you can buy this jacket anywhere."

"We have seen convoys leaving and entering Ukraine on dirt roads in the middle of the night, in areas where there is no official crossing. In one border area, we’ve also made this public, including some footage we have put out. We have seen specific types of weapons that we have described in detail, including electronic warfare equipment. We have spoken to prisoners taken by the Ukrainian forces who claim to be members of the Russian armed forces fighting on rotation in Ukraine. We have seen men with the insignia of the Russian Federation, but you can buy this jacket anywhere. We have also seen the insignia of Germany, Spain, and others—but also of the Russians," he said.

First Deputy Speaker of the Ukrainian Parliament and Ukraine's envoy to the Trilateral Contact Group's humanitarian subgroup Iryna Herashchenko expressed her regrets about Hug's comments, saying that she hoped it "was [Hug's] failure to formulate a phrase, not a position." She said OSCE SMM weekly records the presence of Russian equipment and weapons in its official reports.

Hug leaves his post on Oct. 31, 2018.

Filaret: Kremlin seeks for reason to 'protect' Orthodox believers in Ukraine

on Fri Oct 26, 2018 3:14 pm
Filaret: Kremlin seeks for reason to 'protect' Orthodox believers in Ukraine



Russian authorities are looking for a new reason to launch another "protection campaign" this time of Orthodox believers in Ukraine.

Head of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate (UOC-KP), His Holiness Patriarch Filaret told a press conference at Ukrinform news agency on Friday, Censor.NET reports.

"They say not so much about the issuing of the tomos, but about the seizure of temples. Where does it come from, and why? It comes from Moscow. Moscow is preparing the ground for intervention by military force [...] The same was in Donbas, where they had an excuse - 'protection' of the Russian-speaking population [...]

"When they intervened, they forgot why they intervened. Now they want to invent a new reason - protection of the Russian Church of the Moscow Patriarchate, 'protection' of Orthodox believers. That is why, knowing this, we will not tolerate any violence and we will not give grounds for Moscow to interfere in our Ukrainian affairs, in our Ukrainian ecclesiastical life," Filaret said.

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

On Sept. 2, hierarchs 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 autocephality of Ukraine's church. Further measures, such as the adoption of documents at the Synod, are expected to be taken in October.

Subsequently, on Sept. 7, Ecumenical Patriarchate has appointed two Exarchs in Kyiv as part of preparations for granting autocephaly to Ukraine's Orthodox church. "Within the framework of the preparations for the granting of autocephaly to the Orthodox Church in Ukraine, the Ecumenical Patriarchate has appointed as its Exarchs in Kyiv His Excellency Archbishop Daniel of Pamphilon from the United States, and His Grace Bishop Hilarion of Edmonton from Canada, both of whom are serving the Ukrainian Orthodox faithful in their respective countries under the Ecumenical Patriarchate," the Ecumenical Patriarchate said in an announcement.

On Sept. 25, the UOC-MP declared that it was demanding that the Patriarchate of Constantinople withdraw its exarchs from Ukraine. In particular, the Holy Synod of the UOC-MP at a meeting held in the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra September 25, expressed its attitude regarding the appointment of the Exarchs of the Constantinople Patriarchate to Kyiv.

On Oct.11, 2018, Ecumenical Patriarchate has decided to proceed to the granting of autocephaly to the Church of Ukraine. In addition, the legal binding of Synod’s Letter of 1686 was abolished, thus pulling the Kyiv Metropolis from under Moscow jurisdiction. The Ecumenical Patriarchate also reinstated head of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Philarchate Filaret and head of the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church Makariy in their canonical status.

On Oct. 12, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate (UOC-KP) called for the episcopate, clergy and believers of the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church (UAOC) and the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate (UOC-MP) to begin preparations for a unifying Council.

On Oct. 15, the Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church decided to break the eucharistic communication with the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

On Oct. 18, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine passed the law on the transfer of the St. Andrew's Church to the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople for perpetual free of charge usage.

New York Times: Sakharov Sentsov Award is a humiliation for the Russian government

on Fri Oct 26, 2018 3:24 pm
New York Times: Sakharov Sentsov Award is a humiliation for the Russian government



The awarding of the prestigious human rights awards to the Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov, who is serving a 20-year term in the Russian colony in Siberia, restores the attention of political prisoners to the branched punitive system, which was once called the Gulag.

As the Censor.NET reports, the US edition New York Times writes about it.

"The awarding of the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought is a humiliation for the Russian government, but it also enhances the popularity of the prisoner Oleg Sentsov by raising his price in a possible exchange," the article said.

The American edition reminds that the Russian regime grabbed a Ukrainian director in Crimea in 2014, shortly after Russian troops captured the peninsula. He was accused of intent to blow up bridges, power lines and a monument to Vladimir Lenin. Sentsov itself denies all this, but admitted that he opposes the annexation of the Crimea. This year, he starved to protest the imprisonment of Ukrainians in Russia for 145 days and stopped only after medical intervention.

The publication notes that the European award is named after the Soviet physicist and dissident Andrei Sakharov. It is handed over every year to "people or organizations struggling for human rights and fundamental freedoms." Thus, Sentsov joined the world of icons such as Nelson Mandela and Malala Yusafzai.

The edition also reminds that one of the laureates of the prize Anatoly Marchenko died in a Soviet prison during a hunger strike.

Awarding Sentsov sheds light on the policy of detention in the Russian war against Ukraine. Moscow justifies the annexation of the Ukrainian Crimea by a dubious referendum, which it organized during a military invasion on the peninsula. After the occupation, mass arrests of dissent began, which consolidated the Russian regime and made it clear that even the pro-Ukrainian views were a rebellion in the eyes of the Kremlin.

Recall that on October 25, Ukrainian political prisoner Oleg Sentsov became the winner of the Sakharov Prize.

The President of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, expressed his gratitude to the European Parliament for the decision to grant Sakharov a prestigious award to the Ukrainian director, the prisoner of the Kremlin, Oleg Sentsov.

The US Embassy said that Russia should immediately release the winner of the European Parliament Prize of 2018 named after Andrei Sakharov, Ukrainian director Oleg Sentsov, so that he could personally receive this award.

USAID said how judicial reform has increased citizens' confidence in the courts

on Fri Oct 26, 2018 3:32 pm
USAID said how judicial reform has increased citizens' confidence in the courts

Over the past year, the trust of Ukrainian citizens in courts through judicial reform has increased to 20%.

This is evidenced by the results of the All-Ukrainian poll of citizens on the independence and accountability of the judiciary and the perception of judicial reform, which was held in September 2018 by GfkUkraine on the initiative of the USAID Justice Justice Reform Program, New Justice.

The program experts stated that due to the reform, the level of trust in the courts tends to increase. Thus, in 2018, the level of public trust in courts increased by 6%, compared to 12% of confidence, which was recorded according to the results of similar sociological surveys carried out by the USAID Justice Justice Reform Program New Justice in 2017. Given that in 2015 this figure was 5%, in 2018, people's confidence in the courts through the reform has increased fourfold.

USAID USAID expert Thomas Wertelecki noted the positive dynamics of increasing Ukrainians' trust in the judiciary, since it was critically low by 2015 - 5%.

According to the results of the sociological survey, today the level of Ukrainians' trust in the courts is higher than in the Verkhovna Rada (11%), political parties (13%), the Cabinet of Ministers (13%), the President (15%), and the National Agency for Prevention corruption (15%).

A significant part of Ukrainians (34%) are hoping that judicial reform will improve the situation in the country as a whole.

The survey covered 2,478 citizens in all regions of Ukraine, except for the Crimea, uncontrolled government of the territories and zone of the operation of the Joint Force. The research was conducted from September 12 to October 1, 2018.

The questionnaire was developed by Ukrainian and international experts.

The Kyivan Patriarchate will nominate Filaret as head of a single autocephalous church

on Fri Oct 26, 2018 3:36 pm
The Kyivan Patriarchate will nominate Filaret as head of a single autocephalous church

The Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate will nominate its head Patrarch of Kyiv and All-Russia-Ukraine Filaret (Mykhailo Denysenko) to the post of presiding officer of the single autocephalous local church.

This was stated by the viceroy of the patriarch Metropolitan Epiphanius, reports RBC-Ukraine.

According to Epiphanius, Filaret himself will not nominate his candidacy.

"We will be the bishops of the Kyivan Patriarchate unanimously. All 40 bishops are united in the idea that only the holy patriarch has all the qualities necessary to lead a local Orthodox church," said Epiphanius.

The cleric also specified that the primate of the only Ukrainian local Orthodox autocephalous church will be elected at the united cathedral.

In his turn, Filaret at a press conference "Ukrainian Church on the Way of Establishing Autocephaly" said that over 60 bishops of three churches - the UOC-KP Patriarchate, the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church and the UOC-Moscow Patriarchate - are delegated to the unifying cathedral - who will elect by the vote of the head of a single church.

"The next step towards autocephaly is the convening of a Bishops' Council, which will consist of three churches: the Kyiv Patriarchate - more than 40 bishops, the Autocephalous Church - 12 bishops and say that 10 minimum bishops of the Moscow Patriarchate, that is, of these bishops will be convened by the Cathedral and at this Cathedral it will be recorded the unification of all three churches in one Ukrainian Orthodox Church", - Filaret explained.

The date of the unifying cathedral must be determined by the Ecumenical Patriarch.

-Recall that on October 11, the Ecumenical Patriarchate canceled anathema against the patriarch of the UOC KP Filaret and acknowledged the annexation of the Kyiv Metropolitanate to Moscow illegitimate. In addition, the Ecumenical Patriarchate confirmed the provision of autocephaly to the Ukrainian Church.

-The Russian Orthodox Church said that the Ecumenical Patriarch "crossed the red border" . On October 14, police arrested about 100 suspicious youths under the Moscow Patriarchate under the control of the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra.

-On October 15, the Russian Orthodox Church completely broke the relationship with the Ecumenical Patriarchate through a decision to authorize the creation of an autocephalous church in Ukraine. The faithful of the Russian Orthodox Church have been banned from praying in the temples of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. The Russian church in New York has declared a boycott of Constantinople. The Russian Orthodox Church declared the universal patriarch Bartholomew a "split person" and demands apology for Ukraine.

-Metropolitan of the UOC (MP) Alexander (Drabinko) described himself and the rest of the Kievan Metropolia as clerics of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

-The Verkhovna Rada passed the St. Andrew's Church in Kyiv to use the Ecumenical Patriarchate . She plans to make the embassy of the Ecumenical Patriarch.
