Defending the Social Media with the four-letter word Defending the Social Media with the four-letter word An attack is under way against the truth-seeking social media practising data democracy. What is unacceptable is that the liars accuse the truthseekers of lying Today's news headlines speak against Russian bots "spreading false news" and querying the institutions which produce results favorable to the west and unfavorable to Moscow. The insinuation is that of course the western sources are right because they are staffed by righteous and honorable people who would never invent a lie in their lives and anything that dares to question their words is automatically spreading lies.

USSR shot down Korean passenger Boeing 40 years ago. Chronicles Forty years ago, Soviet pilots shot down a Korean passenger aircraft after it invaded Soviet airspace. On April 20, 1978, Boeing 707-321B passenger aircraft of Korean Air Lines (South Korea) was flying from Paris to Seoul with an intermediate stop in Anchorage. There were 97 passengers and 12 crew members on board. The flight route was lying over the northern part of Greenland and Canada, and then the airliner was supposed to fly over Alaska and head to Anchorage. However, instead, the Boeing allegedly deviated from the course due to a piloting error and headed through the Svalbard archipelago towards the Finnish-Soviet border. In April 1978, the USSR was conducting large-scale exercises on ​​the Kola Peninsula. The exercises were held around the city of Severomorsk. The city had the reputation of one of the most closed settlements in the USSR as it was a key location for a number of naval bases and command centers. In addition, many of Soviet strategic bomber planes and reconnaissance aircraft were based on the Kola Peninsula as well.... Pubdate: Fri, 20 Apr 2018 18:37:00 +0300

The aims of the criminal bombing of Syria by the Transnational Elite and globalization By Takis Fotopoulos The dramatic events of the past weeks and days, which came to a head with the criminal NATO bombing of Syria during the early hours of Saturday 14th April (so as not to create unwanted disturbances in the stock market!), are very likely to have major consequences on the international stage. Furthermore, they were also aimed at the 'populist' movements, as the elites call the movements for national and economic sovereignty which are presently spreading rapidly throughout Europe and beyond. Therefore, the relatively narrow extent of the bombing is not the real issue, as the mouthpieces of the Transnational Elite (TE) claim in order to minimize its importance. It is the fact that the TE now assert that might is right and that they can therefore bomb Syria at will (on the pretext of false flag attacks), until they have enforced their own participation in negotiations on its future, so as to secure its full integration into the New World Order. The NATO criminals have struck again, exactly as they did in Iraq 15 years ago (minus France back then, which was not yet another offshoot of NATO) - ignoring not only the UN and the International Law which they have had the nerve to invoke, but even the very people whom they supposedly represent. This was made clear through a poll on the eve of the Syria bombings, which showed that less than a quarter of British people approved of this action, while neither of the three ridiculous 'leaders' of the campaign dared to request the opinion of their own parliamentary/Congressional bodies. In other words they have deliberately acted before the OPCW could reach Syria, thus ignoring the very UN committee which they themselves sent there and which was due to begin its investigation on the same day. This had been to establish whether Assad's alleged chemical attack had indeed taken place, as the international mass media under the TE's complete control have been parroting. The immediate aim behind NATO's attack was most likely to pre-empt any decision of the UN body not to their liking, if not to obstruct the OPCW's fact-finding mission, as the Russians accused them of doing. And of course the supposed attempted murder of the double agent Sergei Skripal by Russian spies had already been staged in Britain, based on "evidence" that a Russian nerve agent had been used. In fact, according to Sergey Lavrov, the Russian Foreign Minister, the toxin was never produced in Russia, but was in service in the US, UK, and other NATO states....

War between USA and Russia will break out only if Americans cross Russia’s red lines Director of the Institute of the USA and Canada Valery Garbuzov compared the qualities of the commanders-in-chief of Russia and the United States. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stated that Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump, as well as the military of the two countries, will never let a military confrontation spark. "Getting back to the question of risks of a military confrontation, I am 100% certain that the military will not allow it, and, of course, neither President Putin nor, I'm sure, President Trump will allow it. They are the leaders elected by their peoples, and they are responsible to their people for peace and tranquility," Lavrov said in an interview with RIA Novosti. Director of the Institute of the USA and Canada, Valery Garbuzov, suggested in an interview with Pravda.Ru that Lavrov's optimism is based on one argument: "The United States and Russia are nuclear powers. "We saw from the Cold War experience that the confrontation was tough, but it had not developed into direct confrontation," the expert told Pravda.Ru.... Pubdate: Fri, 20 Apr 2018 16:46:00 +0300

Russia may interrupt regular flights with USA The United States creates visa problems for pilots of Russia's Aeroflot, even though Aeroflot is the only airline that makes regular flights between Russia and the USA. "It is possible that Russia and the United States of America will be left without air service. Aeroflot, the only company that makes regular flights between Russia and the United States, is likely to be forced to stop them, as their crews experience increasing difficulties with obtaining US visas," a statement from the press department of the Russian Foreign Ministry said. Putin's official spokesman Dmitry Peskov admitted that regular flights between Russia and the USA could be stopped, although the Russian administration would not want such a development....

Russia to introduce criminal responsibility for those implementing anti-Russian sanctions Vyacheslav Volodin, the Speaker of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, spoke in favor of a legislative act to impose responsibility, including criminal liability, on those who implement anti-Russian decisions made by foreign countries in their activities on the territory of the Russian Federation, the press service of the lower house of the parliament said, RIA Novosti reports. "On April 20, State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin, at a meeting with representatives of business and expert circles, during the discussion of the bill about responsive measures to US sanctions against Russia, spoke in favor of imposing a ban on the implementation of US sanctions in the Russian Federation. He explained that it would be correct to introduce measures of responsibility in relation to those who execute anti-Russian decisions of foreign states in their activities on the territory of Russia. Mr. Volodin did not rule out measures of criminal responsibility either. In Russia, we must live according to Russian laws," the press service of the State Duma said in a statement. Pravda.Ru  ...

Russia delivers S-300 air defense systems to Syria? Several cargo ships that arrived to Syria's Tartus from Russia were unloaded under the guise of smokescreen Several cargo ships entered the Syrian port of Tartus, where the Russian naval base is located. It is believed that the vessels have arrived from the Russian port of Novorossiysk, but nothing is known about the cargo that the ships are carrying on board, news.com.au reports with reference to sources in Syria. It was said that the ships were unloaded secretly, under the guise of a smokescreen. In addition, there was special gas sprayed in the unloading area of the port to jam satellite and UAV tracking systems.... Pubdate: Fri, 20 Apr 2018 12:56:00 +0300

Yulia Skripal received toxic chemical injection while in a coma, Russian embassy officials say The Russian embassy in the United Kingdom said that there were high chances that a toxic chemical was injected into the blood of Yulia Skripal before her blood samples were collected. The Russian Embassy demanded the UK should let Russian medical specialists access the woman. "Russian citizen Yulia Skripal has been illegally detained by the British authorities since March 4, 2018, and her contacts with us have been blocked," a press secretary of the embassy said. He added that Russian diplomats are concerned about the state of the woman's health and the lack of official information about her. The official added that all statements that British official had made so far could not be considered reliable.According to the embassy spokesman, Russian specialists, having only the OPCW report, do not have a real picture of the situation and can not analyze the events that have happened in Salisbury. They can not assess the possible involvement of British intelligence services in the Salisbury incident either. Russian specialists ask more and more questions. For example, it remains unclear how a non-decomposed toxic chemical established by Porton Down was found in a blood sample of one of the victims 18 days after the contact, even though the other victim, who suffered a more serious poisoning, did not show such a phenomenon. According to him, such an observation was not typical of nerve agents, which may indirectly mean, with a high degree of probability, that a chemical agent had been injected into the blood of Yulia Skripal before her blood samples were collected when she was in a coma.Pravda.Ru...

Chinese experts point out to huge drawback of F-22 versus Su-57 Chinese experts conducted a comparative analysis of Su-57 and F-22 aircraft and came to curious conclusions. According to satellite images, the Russian military did deploy Su-57 fighter jets at Khmeymim airbase in Syria. Even though the Su-57 is a fifth-generation fighter, there were no special conditions provided for the airplane. Like all other aircraft, Su-57 fighters were parked in the open air, Chinese analysts noted. At the same time, F-22 fighters are very often kept in air conditioned hangars. Chinese specialists wondered whether US fifth-generation stealth fighter aircraft need to be kept in air conditioned hangars indeed. Originally, the F-22 was the first type of US stealth aircraft that can be serviced at the forefront. However, 50% of maintenance time for the F-22 has to be spent on the exploitation of radio-absorbing coating. Therefore, the F-22 turns out to be inferior to other traditional fighter aircraft in terms of maintenance works. Pravda.Ru Read article on the Russian version of Pravda.Ru...

USA highly concerned about Russia's cold-blooded silence in response to missile attack on Syria The United States is concerned about the current crisis in the relations with Russia and suggests returning to reasonable policies to avoid a nuclear war, military expert Sergei Sudakov believes.A recent report from the US Congressional Research Center said that if the United States conduct an "instantaneous global strike," the missiles would most likely fly over the territories of Russia or China." "Many possible targets lie south of Russia and China, and the United States has historically planned to launch its ballistic missiles over the North Pole."The authors of the report believe that in such a situation, Moscow and Beijing may use nuclear weapons without having time to assess the threat. To prevent "misunderstanding" between Moscow and Washington, it is proposed to notify Russia of the planned launch and maintain constant contacts between the military of the two states.Sergei Sudakov, a member of the Academy of Military Sciences, political scientist and Americanist, told Pravda.Ru, that "the concept of sovereignty provides for certain conditions, when aerial weapons can fly over foreign territories only if the route has been coordinated with the countries that own those territories." "Otherwise, the missiles will be destroyed, and this is what the Russian military nuclear doctrine says," Sergei Sudakov said. If one reads the report "between the lines," "the US wants to resume the system of full-fledged control over airspace," Sergei Sudakov believes. The Americans were very much surprised with Russia's cold-blooded silence in response to their attacks on Syria. They clearly understand that Russia is not going to withdraw its earlier statements, they know that Russia will respond accordingly," Sergei Sudakov said. "The Americans indirectly speak of their intention to return to the system of coordinated launches and flights and warn each other to avoid a catastrophe. This is a policy of fear that leads to a policy of reason. Pre-emption and a constant classic hotline for prevention should always be present for any missile launches - this is the only thing that can save us from the war," the expert told Pravda.Ru. It is worthy of note that Russia had preliminary coordinated the flights of its Caliber missiles over the territories of Iran and Iraq when Russia was striking terrorists in Syria from the south-western area of the Caspian Sea.Pravda.Ru Read article on the Russian version of Pravda.Ru...

Turkey withdraws its gold from USA The administration of the Central Bank of Turkey has withdrawn the national gold reserve from the US Federal Reserve System.According to Trend news agency, the Central Bank of Turkey had 220 tons of gold at the US Federal Reserve.At the same time, two other Turkish banks - Ziraat and Vakifbank - also started withdrawing their  gold reserves from the United States. Their "gold assets" are evaluated at 95 tons.As of March 2018, the gold reserves of the Central Bank of Turkey amounted to $25.3 billion.Analysts believe that Turkey has made such a move against the background of worsening relations between Ankara and Washington. Earlier, Want China Times wrote with reference to Duowei News that China's enormous gold reserves give the People's Republic of China an opportunity to cause the US national currency to collapse. The publications also noted that Russia had doubled her gold and currency reserves since 2005.Pravda.Ru Read article on the Russian version of Pravda.Ru... Pubdate: Thu, 19 Apr 2018 18:00:00 +0300

Unexploded Western missiles in Russia's hands: Russian air defenses to get even better Russian military men received two unexploded cruise missiles from Syria. The missiles were found after the attack that the Western coalition conducted on Damascus on April 14. The Syrian military noted that the two missiles were in a good condition, and they were handed over to the Russian military on April 17. The United States, Britain and France launched more than a hundred missiles on Syria on April 14 in response to the alleged chemical attack in Eastern Ghouta even though there was no evidence to prove the fact of the attack. Political scientist Yevgeny Satanovsky believes that Russia should put as much pressure on the US as possible and suspend dialogue with the United States on the official level. This will make the Americans panic and they will finally start looking for ways to bring the relations back to normal. "There are many of those who witnessed the provocations in Ghouta, there are many fragments of the missiles that were shot down above Syria, but Trump says that none of his missiles ere intercepted. Russia should press the Americans as much as she can - we should punch them in the fact, and it would be the right thing to do." "We should use shock therapy to sober up the Americans. In this case, the Americans will speak about the need to resume dialogue. There is no other option," Satanovsky said. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, Syrian air defense forces intercepted 71 of 103 missilesMember of the expert council of the board of the Military-Industrial Commission of the Russian Federation, Viktor Murakhovsky, said that the unexploded missiles that Russian now has at its disposal will give Russian specialists an opportunity to improve domestic air defenses and electronic warfare. Some of the missiles used in the attack on Syria were not new, but some others were used for the first time. Russian specialists are particularly interested in USA's Tomahawk Block IV and JASSM-ER, as well as in new missiles used by France and the UK. Politonline... Pubdate: Thu, 19 Apr 2018 17:41:00 +0300

The Geo-political board game: Predicting the next move The Geo-political board game: Predicting the next move Back to the two blocs, the question today is which one represents humankind and which one walks in tandem with our hearts and minds... If we can take a board game as an analogy of the current geo-political setting, what will we see? We will find two players sitting on opposite sides of the board, "partners" only insofar as they are both playing the game. In front of them, there is a large board with squares and plastic counters but no dice, only two sets of situation cards in front of each player, one entitled ATTACK and the other, DEFENSE. Covering the squares is a map showing geo-political regions: Americas, divided into North, Central and South; Arctic, Antarctic, Europe and Scandinavia; Middle East; Africa, divided into North, Central and South; Oceania, Asia, divided into Central, South-East and Far East and at the top, one word: Russia. One player sits to the left of the Americas, facing eastwards, the other sits to the right of Asia, Far East, facing westwards.... Pubdate: Thu, 19 Apr 2018 17:03:00 +0300

George W. Bush, who saw Putin's soul in 2001, says what US attitude to Russia should be like Former US President George W. Bush said in an interview with Fox News that Vladimir Putin was an intelligent tactician, and relations with him must be forceful.Bush said that he managed to "see a soul" when he looked Putin in the eye, but that was during the time when Russia was broke. These days, Bush added, Putin has changed and turned into a very aggressive person, whose ultimate goal is to reinstate Soviet influence. "His attitude on most issues is: "I'm going to win and US is going to lose," Bush said. "Therefore, I always believed that it is important for the United States to be forceful when dealing with Putin, not belligerent, but forceful. He is good," the former US president said.When speaking about Putin's popularity in Russia, George W. Bush said that he would have been popular in the USA too if he had owned a major television network. Bush believes that Putin is very strong inside Russia, even though the Russian economy is not strong enough and the demographics is not that positive. In 2001, George W. Bush said the following about Putin: "I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straight forward and trustworthy and we had a very good dialogue. I was able to get a sense of his soul.

Germany begs USA for release The German authorities will ask the United States to free German companies from participating in the sanctions against the Russian Federation. During his visit to Washington, German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz intends to seek special conditions for German businesses in relation to sanctions against Russia.German Chancellor Angela Merkel also intends to raise this issue at a meeting with US President Donald Trump in late April.German industrial giants, including Siemens, Daimler and Volkswagen, which do business in Russia, also lobby this approach because they do not want to suffer losses against the backdrop of the crisis in the US-Russian relationship.According to leaders of German companies, new sanctions may cost Germany hundreds of millions of euros. The former head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belgium, a member of the European Parliament, said that the policy to isolate Russia was a serious geopolitical mistake, especially after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Russia is a European country, and the EU needs to have not only partnership, but also privileged relations with Russia, the official said. The European economy suffered 17.6 billion euros of losses in 2015.A study conducted by the Austrian Institute of Economic Research (WIFO) said that the economic  damage caused by the sanctions against Russia amounted to 17.6 billion euros, whereas 400,000 EU citizens lost their jobs. An analysis of the economic state of 27 countries, Austria, Germany, France, Italy and Poland have suffered from the imposition of sanctions against Russia most. For example, Austria, where exports to Russia in 2015 decreased by almost 40% compared to the previous year, lost 550 million euros and about 7,000 jobs. In Germany, as many 97,000 people were fired, whereas economic losses amounted to six billion euros. France lost 1.63 billion euros, Italy - about one billion euros, Poland - 1.36 billion euros, the Czech Republic - 760 million euros.Pravda.RuRead article on the Russian version of Pravda.Ru...

Trump's two 'nice and smart missiles' delivered to Russian military Syrian military men handed over two unexploded cruise missiles to Russia. The missiles were found after the recent US-led missile strike on Syria. According to the source, the Syrian military found two cruise missiles that did not explode during the US missile strike on Syria on the night of April 14. The two missiles were delivered to the Russian military men on April 17. A representative of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Kenneth McKenzie, said earlier that all the targets in Syria were struck in a "precise, overwhelming and effective" way. The targets were the Center for the Development and Research of Chemical Weapons in Barzeh near Damascus (76 missiles, 57 of them were Tomahawks), a chemical weapons depot near Homs (22 missiles) and a chemical weapons bunker in Him Shinshar (7 Scout missiles). According to McKenzie, none of the aircraft and none of the missiles were intercepted by Syrian air defence systems, although Syrian officials said otherwise.Pravda.RuRead article on the Russian version of Pravda.Ru...

Geopolitics of water At the center of the earthly paradise is the Tree of Life. From its roots are born four rivers whose branches, according to St. John Damascene, are to be identified respectively with the rivers Nile (Gihon), Tigris (Hiddekel), Euphrates (Prath) and Ganges (Pison). No coincidence that the four lines along which some of the most important civilizations of antiquity evolved. Geopolitics of water by Daniele Perra The water of these rivers has a sacred value that exceeds the function of source and sustenance of life of which they are carriers. From the floods of the Nile, to which a divine character was attributed, depended on the prosperity or otherwise of the ancient Egyptian dynasties. And on an island of Lake Tana, at the source of the Blue Nile, it is said that it was kept, before its transfer to Axum (ancient spiritual center long disputed between Fascist Italy and Britain in the previous century), the Ark of the Covenant, given, according to the Ethiopian national poem The glory of Kings, from King Salomon to Menelik I, the son he had with the Queen of Sheba. And again in 2009, the then patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church of Coptic Rite, Abuna Paulos, said: Ethiopia is the throne of the Ark of the Covenant....

Putin must sue UK because of Skripal case lies The OPCW has failed to name both the formula and the country of origin of the substance that poisoned Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury. Can Russia hold British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson accountable for libel?On 18 April, during the second closed meeting of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in The Hague, Peter Wilson, the representative of Great Britain at the OPCW, said that the organisation could not determine the country of origin of the substance that poisoned  former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury.One should bear in mind the fact that the OPCW has not publicly announced the name of the substance, which the British authorities identified as "Novichok" - a nerve gas that was allegedly developed in the Soviet Union in the 1970s and was at the disposal of Russian special services.On the basis of the above-mentioned unfounded statements, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson accused Russia and her president of involvement in the poisoning of the Skripals, which subsequently resulted in another portion of sanctions from Western countries. The leaders of several other Western countries supported Johnson, having released similar statements. Swedish Prime Minister, for example, stated that Russia was supposed to explain how a man was nearly murdered with the use of a nerve gas in the UK. "We share the assessment that, clearly, Russia is responsible," Prime Minister of Sweden Stefan Lofven said. Sweden expelled one Russian diplomat in solidarity with the UK. Can Russia bring Johnson and the Swedish prime minister to trial? Vladimir Olenchenko, a senior researcher at the Center for European Studies at the Institute of World Economy and International Relations of the Russian Academy of Sciences, told Pravda.Ru that one can raise the issue at an international court and seek compensations.""It seems to me that our Prosecutor General's Office is on the right track. The Office has published documents where many things don't come together. Those documents support the idea that it is the British authorities that staged the attempted assassination of the former Russian spy. The problem is that the UK does not respond to our requests," the expert told Pravda.Ru. "We must not let this topic fade away. Russia must raise more and more questions on the subject and ask for answers, attach international attention to the issue," Vladimir Olenchenko said in an interview with Pravda.Ru.It is worthy of note that there is criminal responsibility for libel in Western countries. In the United States and Great Britain, libel is understood as dissemination of deliberately false information of defamatory nature. Russia needs to prove that London's allegations were based on deliberately false information that shattered the reputation of the Russian president. Why don't  Russian lawyers prepare such a lawsuit on behalf of Putin and sue the UK?A few days ago, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov suggested that Sergei and Yulia Skripal were poisoned with BZ gas, which was not developed in Russia.According to Lavrov, Russia received the information on the basis of confidentiality. It contains data that the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) received from the Center for Radiological and Chemical-Biological Analysis in Switzerland. "It is only up to the OPCW to comment on the statement, but we can repeat what was said ten days ago: we have no doubt that Porton Down (the British laboratory) identified "Novichok." Their working standards are so strict their conclusions can not be questioned," the Swiss lab tweeted. At a meeting on Wednesday, April 18, OPCW experts did not confirm the presence of BZ substance in the samples collected in Salisbury."The precursor of BZ that is referred to in the public statements, commonly known as 3Q, was contained in the control sample prepared by the OPCW Lab in accordance with the existing quality control procedures. Otherwise it has nothing to do with the samples collected by the OPCW Team in Salisbury. This chemical was reported back to the OPCW by the two designated labs and the findings are duly reflected in the report," the head of the OPCW Ahmet Uzumcu said.As they say, one barber shaves another gratis.

Washington officials claim Russia attacked American military men in Syria US Assistant Secretary of State Wess Mitchell stated that "Russian mercenaries" attempted to attack American military men in Syria. "Russia's reckless intervention in Syria and support for the Assad regime has raised the risk of confrontation with the West. The failed attack on U.S. forces by Russian mercenaries recently in Syria was one sobering example of this behavior; Moscow's aggressive rhetoric in the period leading up to and after the recent U.S. - led strikes is another," his testimony reads. Mitchell added that Washington did not seek a confrontation with Moscow in Syria, but admitted that the US was ready to use force if necessary. "We do not seek a confrontation. But our forces will not hesitate to use necessary and proportionate force to defend themselves as they are in engaged in operations to defeat ISIS and degrade al-Qa'ida," he wrote. Mitchell also said that the conflict in Syria can only be resolved through negotiations in Geneva. "This solution can only be achieved through a UN - led Geneva process to fully implement UNSCR 2254. We are pushing Russia to be a constructive participant in this process and to bring Assad to the negotiating table. So far, Russia has ignored these calls and instead been a spoiler to Geneva," west Mitchel believes.Meanwhile, the Security Service of Ukraine published a video of the interrogation of a man who claimed that he had witnessed the transportation of a group of people without identification signs to Syria on board Russia's Varyag cruiser. Representatives of the Russian Defence Ministry said that the warship never visited the port of Tartus.The Security Service of Ukraine alleges that the Varyag cruiser delivered a group of Russian mercenaries - employees of PMC Wagner - to Syria."Before telling these fables, they should consult the command of the Ukrainian Navy or their Western curators," official representative of the Ministry of Defence, Major-General Igor Konashenkov said. The Varyag missile cruiser has never stopped by the port of Tartus in Syria, because there are no "appropriate berths" there for mooring warships of such displacement. Konashenkov also pointed out that a cruiser ship is not suitable for the transportation of military equipment and other large-sized military cargo. "The Varyag lacks suitable cargo holds," he explained.The video from the Security Service of Ukraine shows the interrogation of the man who introduced himself as Nikolai Kovalenko. He served on the Varyag missile cruiser as a "space communications mechanic." He and a citizen of Ukraine tried to "illegally cross the border," where they were detained.Pravda.Ru...
