He believed that the replay of that in Russia, this conflict is more important. We were more important to destroy, crush, rape Ukraine than the West to protect her. Therefore, we will raise rates, and at some point the West will falter and recede. In addition, the general philosophy of the conflict was accompanied by increasing brand unbridled nuclear blackmail "- said the expert.

"The question is: if Putin succeeds in Ukraine, by any means - economic, military, political - dominate it, make follow its course, it will be for him a huge incentive to repeat the same in the Baltic States. The large Russian minorities in Estonia and Latvia - is a great attraction for the concept of the Russian world. But the fact that Estonia and Latvia - members of NATO, and the West will face a terrible dilemma: if little green men will appear in the Baltics, it will either need to abandon it, that would be the end of NATO, of the West and the United States, or to go for a nuclear conflict Power. This is a terrible choice for the West, and the only way to avoid it - put Putin defeat non-military means in the territory of Ukraine ", - said the Russian opposition.

Putin all copies of Hitler. Russian opposition systematized all the evidence

Crimean speech by Russian President Vladimir Putin - is a striking remake of the Sudetenland Hitler's speeches. This was stated at the conference "Media and Identity" in Lviv Russian political expert, publicist and oppositionist Andrei Piontkovsky.

He said that prior to Putin's task was to justify, legitimize that justify and legitimize the impossible. "This is supported by a variety of reasons that have been mentioned - the inevitable capture NATO has a military base in Sevastopol until safety Khersones, where, it appears, allegedly Prince Vladimir converted to Christianity," - said the expert.

However, he noted, the famous Crimean Putin's speech there is much more than an excuse Crimean aggression. "In this statement, the first time all the major concepts of Nazi foreign policy of the 30s are presented as a concept of Russian foreign policy:" severed the nation, "" union of historic lands, "" national traitors ". After all, the term "national traitors" - it is a direct translation from the German, it was not at all peculiar to any Soviet or Russian propaganda. Putin has declared its right and a sacred duty to protect around the world are not just citizens of Russia, and of ethnic Russian and Russian speakers,"- said Piontkovsky.

"Just as the March Putin's speech was a remake of the Sudetenland Hitler's speeches, the theoretical position of its performance in the Valdai Club in October 2014 - is translated into Russian letters Hitler Chamberlain of 22 and 25 August 1939", - he added.

In addition, the expert noted, all of these concepts began to grow another analogy of Nazi propaganda arose the Aryan factor. "Funnily enough, that it was none other than the grandson of Molotov Vyacheslav Nikonov, an ethnic Jew, he spoke first about what Russian - Aryan tribe is descended from the Carpathian Mountains and spread throughout Eurasia, up to Fort Ross in California. Putin said that Russian special genetic code. This idea was developed by our Minister of Culture Vladimir Medina: not just the genetic code, and the extra chromosome, and not just a chromosome, and "chromosome spirituality", which it is not mired in the Anglo-Saxon mercantilism. Advocates that 24 hours a day do not get out of the television show, introduced the concept of World War II. Of course, not Ukraine, we are at war. In Ukraine, there is a historical war Russian decadent Anglo-Saxon world. The concept of peace has become a Russian bid for a new ideology of the regime, defining its foreign policy and opposes Russia to the West, not only to justify the annexation of the Crimea, but also any subsequent territorial conquests"- said Piontkovsky.

Russian opposition leader spoke about the myth by which of the "little gray man" made president-hero

Russian political expert, publicist and oppositionist Andrei Piontkovsky at the conference "Media and Identity" in Lviv said that Putin's Russian general in the world with the ideology of the Third Reich, why its collapse is inevitable, and what role in this process awaits thieves Kremlin elite.

In particular, in an interview with "Commander in Chief," he explained, as his time was spin doctors "set up" the Russian leader Putin.

"Cons-spin doctors who conducted the election campaign of Putin in 1999, used the technology of the Third Reich. They created a new little myth, which is absolutely unknown, gray man did not only president but also a national hero. Myth was very simple: here we blow up in our homes terrible Islamic terrorists, that is, the heroic intelligence officer, who will protect us and "killed all our enemies in the toilet." Myth load, but his power was not comparable with the classic Soviet myth - 70 years of his life he did not shine. He quickly ran through all the stages of the Soviet totalitarian myth. Its top instead of victory in World War II was a small victorious war with Georgia, after which it will inevitably fading. In 2011-12 it became apparent death of the myth. He was replaced by the popular meme "Putin - a thief." Tens of thousands of people in mass demonstrations in Moscow passed rows of riot police, who responded calmly to the chants of "Putin - a thief." This has created a difficult situation for the metaphysical authoritarian rule, it lost its ideological and mythological basis. Mode is saved from falling only the absence of a split of elites, "- he explained the expert.

At the same time, he stressed that formed another problem that the Kremlin was perceived as a terrible threat.

"It seems to be quite innocent desire consensus of all sectors of Ukrainian society and the government to conclude an association agreement with the European Union. Putin and his regime saw this as a threat to Ukraine's withdrawal from the system of "thieves pahanatov" emerged in the Soviet Union after its collapse. Ukraine's choice of the European way of development would become contagious, it is very dangerous for the Russian authorities, precisely because of mental similarity of our peoples. So he unleashed a campaign against the Association and methods of intimidation and bribery Yanukovych reached his goal. In December and January, Russian President considered his mission accomplished: the way of Ukraine to Europe was securely locked, "- said Andrei Piontkovsky.

Political experts said that the Revolution was the esteem for Putin surprised. It turned into a real threat to the theoretical, it has become an inspiring example for the Russian society.

"In Ukraine overthrew the criminal regime, which was a clone of Putin. New challenge the Kremlin was the destruction of the Ukrainian state, blocking his way to Europe. And annexation of the Crimea - a tool to solve this problem "- summed up Piontkovsky. In Russian

The Russian government has decided to increase the cost of tickets in the occupied Crimea

Promises to establish low-cost air service between Russia and occupied the Crimea and remain promises.

"In order to maintain a balance between the cost of transportation by air transport and other modes of transport and to maintain a competitive environment for airlines fare for passengers increased by 25 percent," - said the Russian government.

At the same time the authorities do not stop the aggressor wishful thinking. "We hope that this will help increase the number of those wishing to relax and improve your health at the Crimean coast. During last year's season on the peninsula rest more than 4 million people, this year is also expected a large influx of tourists," - said the Prime Minister Medvedev. According to the aggressor country setting quotas, to at least 30 percent of the total number of seats in the aircraft cabin in Economy Class passengers on sale at a special so-called subsidized rate.

If you want to attract travelers, you don't increase the price of transport. The only time you increase it, to make more profit is, when you have a large number of travelers.

With empty shores, increasing travel isn't going to help. This is an indication they're really hurting for income.
Yuriy Sergeyev, Ukraine intends to become a member of the UN Security Council. We go to the polls

Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the UN Yuriy Sergeyev in an interview with "Commander in Chief" said that Ukraine is going to participate in elections to the UN Security Council, which will take place in autumn. "The status of itself does not change anything. During the year, having no status in the UN Security Council of Ukraine has made several dozen meetings. At these meetings, sounded correct statements about Russian aggression, but as long as the reform of the Security Council will not take place until it will be specified clearly and unconditionally secured mechanisms to prosecute violators of the UN Charter, especially in terms of an act of aggression, we can not talk about justice. The question is, what can we bring, being elected to the Security Council to all who are interested, to do this paralyzed mechanisms of action. We are members of a very long negotiation process on the reform of the UN Security Council and the General Assembly throughout the UN system as a whole. But being in the middle of the Security Council is easier to bring people together around concrete actions, specific projects, specific requirements, how and what to do, "- said Sergeyev.

He explained the imperfection of the main mechanisms that must not only ensure peace.

"For me, it is not clear why the UN Charter stipulates that if there is evidence of aggression and the UN Security Council must make the verification and assessment of these facts, in the Security Council are in no hurry with the adoption of such a decision. It turns out that nowhere is not clearly spelled out as quickly be taken and carried out by the main decision on confirmation of the aggression. But members of the UN Security Council only exchange of views and the like. I think it should have been clearly determined that in cases where there is a threat to peace and security, should be immediately sent to the conflict zone verification (evaluation) a group of employees of the Secretariat of the United Nations, which would be reported to the Security Council. As it now is, not only does not work in this case, but in all previous similar conflicts in the world. Therefore, the beginning of any peacekeeping mission has been delayed for years. This imperfection main mechanisms that should not only provide the world "- said the Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the United Nations.

Sergeyev said, what are the features of the country's election procedures in the UN Security Council.

"The principle of the election of the non-permanent members in the Security Council is based on a regional approach. The United Nations has five regional groups. It is from these groups are elected on a rotating member of the Security Council of the UN. Now from the Central and Eastern European group, to which belongs to Ukraine, the UN Security Council is Lithuania. This year we are going to the polls. We have no rivals in the group. In order to be elected, to get support for 2/3 of the votes (128 votes), depending on the amount present in the session hall of the UN General Assembly. But our goal is ambitious, we want to enlist more support than 2/3 of the votes. Most support gives more weight, more legitimacy. Despite the fact that we go to elections without competition in the group, we will continue to work intensively with each delegation, each sub-regional group, with each regional group to understand their problems. Because being in the Security Council we will have to think not only about themselves but also about the global mass. That is why we need to understand the problems of each country and the region ", - explained Sergeyev.

He said that for Russia, she will not be able to stop us.

"In this country there is no argument as to why they can not allow us to be in the UN Security Council. That is why they have not heard publicly. Russia, of course, may make some backstage work, someone to convince us to support. But do not think that they succeed, their support for a set - a 11 countries, as we saw in last year's adoption of a resolution (Resolution in Support of Ukraine, adopted by the UN General Assembly March 27, 2014 are not supported by 11 countries: Armenia, Belarus, Bolivia, Cuba, North Korea, Nicaragua, Russia, Sudan, Syria, Venezuela and Zimbabwe - "Commander in Chief"). However, our strength lies in our righteousness, our power not only to come to every small country with their problems, and to come and see why we have to apply for small island states to support us ", - said the Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the United Nations .

According to him, in addition to our traditional partners, who supported the resolution last year, Ukraine has sympathy among developing countries.

"The results will be known when the delegates vote. Because different countries behave differently. Therefore, to talk about today is that today we get the 100% it would be frivolous of me. But every day talking, speaking in front of the regional groups, sub-groups and individual countries, as I understand it, that we have a lot of sympathy. We tried to reach the understanding of the problems of small countries. For example, there is a group of 44 small island states. We were the first who tried to ensure that their problems are constantly staged during the meeting of the Security Council. Furthermore, if the security problems in these countries will be raised during the meetings of the Security Council. When we came to this problem began to talk about it, and repeat this problem during each session on the UN Security Council reform, they (small countries) treat us like people who go to the Security Council not only to fight for their own interests, but also care for others. So our work is based on each regional group "- summed up Sergeev. In Russian
