Russia creates a new spy network in the UK

on Sun Jan 06, 2019 11:11 am
Russia creates a new spy network in the UK



The Russian Federation is trying to create a new spy network on the territory of Great Britain after exposing suspects in a chemical attack in Salisbury

According to the Censor.NET, this is stated in the newspaper Daily Mail, informs "DS".

Britain's intelligence forces are reportedly concerned about Russia's attempts to restore its position in the country. In particular, local officials are convinced that the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Russian General Staff liquidated after the failure of Sergei Skrypal's poisoning in Salisbury, and spy operations are now headed by the Foreign Intelligence Service (SZR).

Also, British intelligence is growing fears that SZR is a major threat due to the higher professionalism of its employees. As one of the high-ranking sources noted, London is afraid of what it does not know about SZR.

"If Moscow now allocates more resources to the SZR and more freedom to work in the UK, which we believe is happening today, then it is much more worrying because they are more professional," said the source.

There were unexpected details about an American detained in Russia

on Sun Jan 06, 2019 11:19 am
There were unexpected details about an American detained in Russia

Suspected in Russia, a US citizen Paul Whelan, who is accused of espionage, supported the occupation of the Crimea and expressed support for the Kremlin in other situations.

This is reported by "Echo of Moscow".

As it is noted, the American for many years has adjusted the network of contacts in Russia, using for this account in "VKontakte". On his page, Whelan has mostly welcomed friends with various holidays - from Thanksgiving and ending with the day of the Airborne War. He himself was previously in service in the US Army, and according to The Washington Post, was released for an attempt to allocate $ 10,000 at public expense. Sometimes Whelan taught in the social network photos: on one of them he poses in a military uniform with an automatic machine on the background of a portrait of Saddam Hussein, and the other is reflected in a T-shirt of Moscow's "Spartacus".

Friends of Whelan in social networks claim that nothing suspicious in American behavior has ever been noticed. To the charges, many of them are dubious. According to the acquaintances, Uilan has always been "friendly and friendly". One of the interlocutors of the journalists on the condition of anonymity said that he met with Whelan in the middle of 2000 on the site of friends on correspondence and saw him once in 2008, but after that they continued to communicate on the Internet. This person had the impression that the American was sincerely interested in Russia. Whelan willingly discussed politics, adhered to conservative views and, accordingly, supported Republicans. In discussions, he often held a pro-Russian position, including on the military conflict with Georgia in 2008 and the occupation of the Crimea.

As previously reported by the "Apostrophe", in Moscow, members of the Russian Federal Security Service arrested a US citizen Paul Whelan for espionage charges.

Ukraine asks USA to release MMA fighter, a suspect in the murder of journalist Sergienko

Ukraine asks USA to release MMA fighter, a suspect in the murder of journalist Sergienko



Ukraine asks the United States to release a fighter of the MMA (mixed martial arts) Andriy Inosov, a suspect in the murder of journalist Vasily Sergienko in Cherkassy oblast.

This is stated in the materials of the court, reports Censor.NET with reference to Ukrainian News .

In absentia, in absentia, suspicion was expressed in participation in a criminal organization created for the purpose of committing grave and especially grave crimes, as well as in the commission of intentional murder.

In connection with the evasion of the suspect from the authorities of the preliminary investigation, on August 15, 2015, he was declared wanted.

In October 2016, Inosov was declared an international wanted detention and extradition to the territory of Ukraine.

According to a letter from the Department of International Police Cooperation of the National Police of Ukraine dated August 30, 2018, a circular message was published in the account of the General Secretariat of Interpol regarding the search of a MMA fighter for his arrest and subsequent extradition.

"In the future, the location of the suspect was established in the United States, after which a request was made to the competent authorities of the United States to provide international legal assistance and the extradition of a person for prosecution," - said in the materials of the court.

In December of this year, the Ukrainian court upheld the petition of the investigation and arrested the suspect in absentia.

Recall that on April 4, 2014 around 20:30 in Korsun-Shevchenkivskyi Cherkasy region, intruders kidnapped journalist Vasily Sergienko. Then he was killed, and the body, trying to hide the evidence of the crime, was hidden in the forest belt.

On May 16, 2017, employees of the Cherkassy Guinepılı for the procedural guidance of the regional Prosecutor's Office during the conduct of a complex of investigators and operative-search activities in Kiev detained a suspect in organizing a resonant murder of Sergienko.

According to Cenzor.NET, the detainee is the former head of the defense of deputy Gennady Bobov. Earlier, Sergienko's colleagues associate MP Bobov with this crime.

On May 17, Pridneprovsky District Court of Cherkasy chose a preventive measure against Vadym Melnyk in the form of detention for a term of 60 days without the possibility of making a deposit. On May 30, the Court of Appeal changed the precautionary measure to house arrest nighttime wearing an electronic bracelet. Melnyk had to be released immediately in the courtroom. However, the activists blocked the release of the suspect from the camera and the judges themselves in the meeting room. After two hours of lock-in, the investigator returned and announced a new suspicion to Melnyk - the creation of a criminal organization.

On June 1, Pridneprovsky District Court of Cherkasy declared the lawful re-detention, after which he was taken into custody without the right to make a pledge.

On February 1, 2018, nationalist parties and organizations, together with public figures and activists, picketed the Prosecutor General's Office with a demand to complete the investigation into the assassination of Sergienko and immediately filed a petition for the deprivation of the immunity of Bobov, which investigating journalists suspected of commissioning the assassination.

In March, information was received that another suspect was arrested in the United States, the alleged leader of the group of kidnappers - Andriy Inosov.

Today, on suspicion of kidnapping and murdering Sergienko, Vladimir Voronkov, Viktor Gorbenko, Roman Nedibalyuk and Vadym Melnyk were arrested.

Archbishop Clement: "We will not worship with the new church"

on Sun Jan 06, 2019 11:27 am
Archbishop Clement: "We will not worship with the new church"



The Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate has declared that it will not hold joint worship with the Orthodox Church of Ukraine.

According to Censor.NET with reference to the "Public", the head of the information and education department of the UOC-MP, Archbishop Clement said.

"We will not have worship with a new church. If we were doing such divine services, we would become the same scholars as them, and then we will not recognize the local church," said Clement.

He called the Orthodox Church of Ukraine "a non-canonical religious organization."

"Since this organization is not an Orthodox church, we can not serve with its religious leaders," added Clement.

Recall that on January 6, at the Church of St. George at the residence of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Constantinople during the festive liturgy with the participation of Patriarch Bartholomew, the head of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine, Epiphanius, was handed over to Tomos of the autocephaly of the Ukrainian church.

After giving Tomos to Ukraine, the President, Petro Poroshenko, stated that he guarantees respect for the religious choices and religion of every citizen of the country.

On December 15, the Metropolitan of Pereyaslavl and Bila Tserkva Epiphanius, a representative of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchy, was elected as the head of the Ukrainian Local Orthodox Church at the Unity Council.

At the same time the parish of the UOC-MP in the PCU began to move. On the Internet even created an interactive map of such transitions. Metropolitan Metropolitan of Kyiv and All Ukraine Epitaphy of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine (PCU) stated that all believers in Ukraine should voluntarily choose their religious center.

The reaction of Moscow to Tomos testifies to its weakness. The Kremlin puts all efforts into its image, but it's just a fake, - Poroshenko

The reaction of Moscow to Tomos testifies to its weakness. The Kremlin puts all efforts into its image, but it's just a fake, - Poroshenko



President Poroshenko said that the Russian authorities are very angry at the Ecumenical Patriarchate, because he rejected any Moscow claims to Ukraine as its canonical territory.

President Petro Poroshenko denied statements by Moscow on the alleged financial benefits that the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew received from the procedure of granting Tomos an autocephaly to the Orthodox Church of Ukraine. He stated this in an interview with the Greek newspaper Tane, Censor.NET, referring to the press service of the AP.

"There is nothing healthy in such statements, they are evil as such, but honestly, after years of Russian aggression and our struggle to restore sovereignty and territorial integrity, we did not expect anything else from Moscow. He who recalls Russian stories about "green" men "in the Crimea," vacationers "in the Donbass, MH-17 and Salisbury, should not again fall into the Kremlin's traps," said Petro Poroshenko.

"The Russian leadership is known for its lies, deceit and false news, many times they were caught in the hot, spreading lies, but they continue. The very nature of the war that Putin and his regime are opposed to the democratic world involves discrediting, labeling and counterfeiting," - he added.

At the same time, the President noted that this fake, created by the Kremlin, is quite demonstrative, since it shows how Moscow perceives the world.

"They believe that without financial rewards nothing is possible. I believe that when it comes to confidence and belief in God, and especially the restoration of historical truth, there is no place for financial gain. Those who think differently or advocate such fake ones are servants of the Kremlin in his quest for the independence of Ukraine and the free world as such, "Poroshenko said.

"There is no money in the world that could buy such people as His Holiness Bartholomew. I think people in the Kremlin know this - and thus try to falsify his motives, but God and history know the truth, and those who spread lies in the final if there is something that His Patriarch of the Holy Communion has benefited from, the true faith of Ukraine's devotion to Ukraine, and the power of God. "The Autocephalous Orthodox Church of Ukraine will enrich the world Orthodoxy," the president emphasized.

According to him, such a reaction of Moscow also testifies that it is weaker than many consider in the West.

"This is a great lesson: the Kremlin is struggling in its image, as if it is impeccable, invincible, and omnipotent, it's just another fake, so Moscow is very angry at Constantinople, because it rejected any claims by Russia regarding Ukraine as its canonical territory," he said. - said the president.

He added that the Kremlin does not even conceal the fact that the Russian Orthodox Church is considered one of the key instruments for keeping Ukraine in the orbit and within the "Russian world".

"Creating an independent Orthodox Church in Ukraine deprives them of these opportunities or seriously restricts them," the president said.

"All Moscow's claims concern the authorities and control over the territory, not faith and love," Poroshenko also remarked, reminding that the situation in the Ukrainian Orthodox Church was discussed at the Russian Security Council under the presidency of the Russian president.

"When the Russian president says that the collapse of the USSR became for Russia the main geopolitical catastrophe of the twentieth century, the independent Ukrainian church would become the second," he added.

On December 15, the Metropolitan of Pereyaslavl and Bila Tserkva Epiphanius, a representative of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchy, was elected as the head of the Ukrainian Local Orthodox Church at the Unity Council.

At the same time the parish of the UOC-MP in the PCU began to move. On the Internet even created an interactive map of such transitions. Metropolitan Metropolitan of Kyiv and All Ukraine Epitaphy of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine (PCU) stated that all believers in Ukraine should voluntarily choose their religious center.

Germany calls on Russia to withdraw from the arms of a forbidden cruise missile

Germany calls on Russia to withdraw from the arms of a forbidden cruise missile



In order to maintain the Intermediate-Range Missile (MDL) Treaty, the Russian Federation should withdraw from the cruise missile that forced the United States to withdraw from the treaty.

According to the Censor.NET, referring to Ukrinform, the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Germany, Gayko Maas, told a Sunday newspaper Welt.

"The key to preserving DRSMD lies in Moscow... If Russia wants to keep the treaty, it must disarm it so that it can be checked," Maas said.

He noted that "the Russian side violated the treaty, developing and putting on the armed forces of the forbidden cruise missile."

This is a rocket for the Iskander complexes, which the Russian Federation places, in particular, in Kaliningrad.

Berlin, since the United States announced its intention to withdraw from DRSMD, stresses the need to preserve it as a mechanism that has guaranteed Europe's security for decades.

Germany, which is a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council since January 1, raises one of its tasks in promoting the negotiations on disarmament. Moreover, Maas has an ambition to engage in an agreement that was immediately bilateral, other states possessing medium-range missiles. "The scales after the Cold War have changed, we need to develop new global rules of transparency and control, which is why we are taking part in a discussion that covers countries such as China and India," he added.

As it was reported, in the beginning of December, the United States gave Moscow 60 days to meet the requirements of the DRSMD , after which threatened to withdraw from a document signed by the United States and the USSR in 1987.

Putin, December 20 at an annual major press conference, commenting on US plans to withdraw from the DRSMD, said he regrets the growing underestimation of the dangers 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.
