Mattis warned Trump about the Russian threat before resigning: "We need to act decisively"

on Fri Dec 21, 2018 10:24 am
Mattis warned Trump about the Russian threat before resigning: "We need to act decisively"



US Defense Secretary James Mattheys warned US President Donald Trump of a growing Russian and Chinese threat in his resignation letter.

According to Censor.NET with reference to Lenta.ru, the full text of the letter was published by The Guardian.

"I am convinced that we need to act decisively in relations with countries whose strategic interests are increasingly contradictory to ours. It is clear that China and Russia want to rebuild the world in their authoritarian forms, reinforcing (...) the influence on other countries to benefit at the expense of its neighbors, the United States and our allies, "he wrote.

Mettis also stressed the need to respect the Allies respectfully and "to keep a clear view of the zlonnevnyh participants [international relations] and strategic competitors, who have been actively involved in this process for four decades."

The Pentagon leader said that the United States should do its best to advance the world order, which is an integral part of the security, prosperity and preservation of the values ​​of the American people.

Earlier, on December 21, it became known that Mettis decided to resign. He will leave the post on February 28, 2019. In a letter to Trump, he assured that he would carefully prepare a transfer of powers to his successor, which is still unknown.

The Kremlin has announced its willingness to take US missiles under the gun

on Fri Dec 21, 2018 10:31 am
The Kremlin has announced its willingness to take US missiles under the gun



Russia will be forced to take US missile systems in Europe as a target if they, after the withdrawal from the Middle East and Far East (MDL) missile elimination plan, will place them in the region.

According to Censor.NET, referring to TASS, the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said in response to a request to comment on Putin's words during the annual large-scale press conference on Thursday on the threat of a nuclear war after Washington's withdrawal from the treaty.

"Technologically, the president (Putin-Ed.) Was referring to the fact that he has been repeatedly explained. The fact is that leaving the DRSMD could potentially be placing medium and short-range missiles in European countries - just as it was during the Cold War, the placement of these missiles there and their potential targeting towards the Russian Federation will lead the Russian Federation to take these launchers under the sight of its missile arsenal in order to create parity, "Peskov said.

He added that "spiral development and repetition of the situation that we were forced to survive in the past" will take place.

Recall that Putin, December 20 at the annual major press conference, commenting on US plans to withdraw from the DRSMD, said he regrets the growing underestimation of the danger of nuclear war. He added that in the event of the US withdrawal from DRSMD, the situation may become unpredictable.

"And if these missiles appear in Europe, what should we do? Of course, we will have to secure our security by some steps, then let us not complain about the fact that we are achieving some kind of advantage," Putin said.

Russia is interested in exchanging "all at all", but there are differences, - Peskov

on Fri Dec 21, 2018 10:53 am
Russia is interested in exchanging "all at all", but there are differences, - Peskov



The Kremlin stated that Ukraine and Russia can not agree on an exchange for the "all at all" formula because of the different "classification" of detained persons.

As Censor.NET informs with reference to UNIAN, Russian presidential press secretary Dmytro Peskov told journalists about this issue, answering the issue of why the head of the Russian state Vladimir Putin at the annual press conference did not respond to the fate of Russians convicted in Ukraine, despite the fact that this question was raised three times.

Peskov said that the Russian president was interested in Russians returning to their homeland as soon as possible, but the question was raised in the context of the fact that they should be exchanged for enthusiastic Ukrainian sailors.

"In this context, the president said that this is a matter of investigation and a court decision," said Peskov.

"The fact that the president did not specifically respond was due to the fact that this is actually a very complicated issue. For a long time, Russia has been the initiator of the" all-for-all "exchange, but there is a difference in the qualifications of those who are held in Moscow , those who are held in Kiev, whom to consider these people, and hence the differences in the number of people, the number of those who are invited to exchange everyone at all", - explained the spokeswoman.

He emphasized that this work is under way, adding that Viktor Medvedchuk, leader of the "Ukrainian Choice" organization, is largely in charge of it.

Answering the question of how the Kremlin qualifies Russians convicted in Ukraine for fighting in the Donbass, Peskov said: "Here we can not speak in general - here one can only speak personally: this is a long and difficult conversation."

Recall that the Navy of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on November 25th reported that the border ships of the Russian Federation committed aggressive actions against Ukrainian ships, which carried out a planned transition from the port of Odessa to the port of Mariupol Azov Sea. In particular, the Russian border ship "Don" carried a ram of the Ukrainian raiding tug, which damaged the main engine of the ship, lining and liner fencing, as well as a life raft lost. The Navy of the Armed Forces of Ukraine stressed that the intention to implement the transition was warned in advance and acted within the framework of international law.

At the same time, the Russian Federal Security Service says that the three Ukrainian warships in the Azov Sea "illegally entered the territorial waters of the Russian Federation and headed for the Kerch Strait."

Later, the Ukrainian Navy reported that the Russian Federal Security Service's boats were defeated by defeat to the "Berdyansk" MABAK, is wounded . And then they announced the seizure of all three ships by special forces of the Russian Federation and six wounded.

On November 26, the Verkhovna Rada voted for the introduction of a military state for 30 days in Vinnytsa, Donetsk, Zaporozhye, Lugansk, Mykolaiv, Odesa, Sumy, Kharkiv, Kherson and Chernihiv regions, as well as the internal waters of the Azov-Kerch water area.

The decision to introduce a martial law was taken in connection with the act of aggression against Ukraine in the Kerch Strait. As a result of illegal actions of Russian security forces, three ships of the Ukrainian Navy were captured and 24 Ukrainian servicemen captured. Under the control of the Russian Federation, the court of the occupied Simferopol has chosen a precautionary measure for 24 sailors to be detained until January 25, 2019.

On November 30, seamen were transported to Moscow: 21 Ukrainians were taken to the Moscow prison "Lefortovo", three wounded - in "Sailor's silence".
