Great is a non-volatile power


The management of Naftogaz said that it is seeking “written” contacts with the leadership of Russian Gazprom in order to “resume the execution of the contract by the Russian side”





Testing of the Ukrainian gas transmission system without “Ukrainian” gas volumes took place. Practice has shown that three or four days, well, a maximum — a week ... and again they would start to “drill holes” in a pipe ... “Unlimited” gas volumes in UGS began to empty out at an incredible pace. For the first time in the postwar stories The authorities of the “non-volatile” republic decided to recommend the management of educational institutions to suspend work for more than 10 days. As a result, having begun to actively buy Russian gas from Europeans several times more expensive than Gazprom’s straight-through gas, they announced an incredible peak, continuing to monitor weather forecasts on meteorological resources.

Director of the Center for Strategic Analysis of the Institute for Innovative Development, Andrei Ivanov, commented on Vitanko’s statement to FAN

“By itself, the decision of Gazprom to terminate contracts with Naftogaz is symbolic for the simple reason that contracts expire in a year and no one is going to renew them, as you might guess. In this case, the procedure itself for the breaking of contracts, all these courts may be delayed for many years. On the other hand, Gazprom should state its position most clearly. Here it is extremely interesting that there will be a general role for Ukraine in the transit of gas.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that it is impossible to break the contract between Naftogaz and Gazprom. According to the head of the Ukrainian state, such a procedure is simply not provided for in the document.


Oracul
One can argue about different differences, but I think that Russia is now able to stand up for itself. And any legally unjust decision in favor of an impudent Ukraine will come around comes around as a complete fiasco and European "justice" and Square. How much string does not curl, and the end is near.

The collapse of the An-26 VKS RF in Syria

Ministry of Defense: 6 March, near 15.00 (Moscow time), during the landing approach at Khmeimim airfield, the Russian An-26 transport plane crashed. 39 people died.





Plane crash can not be accidental. People died, and this can not leave indifferent. It was noted that the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation immediately dismissed two versions of the causes of the incident - a strike from the ground and weather conditions. Thus, the range of versions has actually narrowed down to two main ones: a technical problem and a crew error. It is possible, of course, to narrow further, but the main thing is that in the end the investigation should not turn into a campaign to hush up the real causes of the incident. After all, silencing does not mean taking measures to further eliminate such tragic incidents. And practice shows that our aircraft fall prohibitively often. Too often, and for a variety of reasons, including a banal attitude to the matter, how to put it more mildly ... "leave me alone."

The final official version - damaged flaps. And what caused the damage to the flaps themselves - is still unknown.

Comments from our readers:

ARES623
And where does the war? Something often began to fall passenger planes of our Ministry of Defense ... A year ago, Tu-154, today An-26 ... In both cases, the external impact is denied. It remains, for the most part, the organization and provision of air travel in the MO.
The kingdom of heaven and the eternal memory of the dead. Condolences to relatives and friends.

We grieve. But. See flyradar data and air traffic density over Europe, the USA and the Middle East and Russia. And then divide by the number of catastrophes and victims, from which more should be subtracted commercial and private light-engine, of which in the west shaft. The best Russian pilots leave for a long ruble to other countries, the fleet is aging, fly foreign cars, people do not decide ... You can not keep silent about the reasons.


Aleksandr21
Let now experts understand the reasons for what happened, in my opinion, the Ministry of Defense didn’t shallow the weather conditions right away, even Israel’s neighbors confirm that the weather was very bad, strong wind + (possibly) a failure of the equipment and a combination of various factors could cause the plane to fall, sorry for the guys ...


By NATO standards

Tymchuk:
“However, we note that it was talks about supplying American Javelins that broke not only the Kremlin, but also the Russian military in the Donbas for rags.”



Talking helmet: Talk about "Javelinakh" has already broken the Russian military to rags

After that were published Photo the range of "one of the strongest army in the European continent" in the Nikolaev region is "Wide Lan". The state is such that eloquently testifies to the goodness of those who are being prepared at the training ground. Since 2014, the Ukrainian military, knowing that the landfill is constantly turning into “dirty Venice”, could not even build wooden flooring with their own hands. Apparently, they are also expecting from the United States, as well as the Javelins ... In general, they are holding back Russia for a causal place in sticky slush, which is getting closer and closer to NATO standards ...

The only thing is, to be serious, because for each complex, the Americans pinch their calculations, thereby increasing their military presence in the Donbass and it will already be two the point of our globe, practically, a direct confrontation, it’s bad that this confrontation is on our borders, and not vice versa ... Ukrainians, in this case, are an ordinary, albeit aggressive, gasket!

Kindergarten, second quarter. Russia is completely free from the delivery of these missiles. Another question is how to take advantage of this situation.


Does it smell like nobel?

The decision of Kazakhstan to join the anti-nuclear treaty may in the long term threaten the entire missile test infrastructure of the Russian Federation in this republic.

Results of the week. European spring is coming




That's what 22 billions frozen in American banks do ... And the rest is, of course, an independent and ultramega-correct internal decision of the Kazakhstani leadership, which, judging by all, marks the Nobel Peace Prize.

Squeezed by numerous American requests. So we lack polygons, an interview with a representative of the holding is fresh in memory.

I do not think that we will have a serious problem. The treaty will not interfere with testing missiles without nuclear heads. Therefore, there are no problems for weight and size analogs. But importing special units into Kazakhstan is not worth it. But for its own (Kazakhstan) mining and processing of uranium, serious problems may arise.


Northern warrior
In the future, Russia will get one more dill near by. Under Nazarbayev, this will not happen, of course, but after he leaves, it will inevitably happen. I think that in the Kremlin they also understand this, that’s why they are building cosmodromes.


Stank, boil!

The Avangard strategic complex, with a hypersonic planning and maneuvering warhead, has been put into mass production, reports RT with reference to a military diplomatic source.





And somewhere, one American anti-missile defense system in Eastern Europe, “not directed against Russia,” quietly shed a tear.

At the same time, many sawflies of the US military budget quietly rejoiced at the Pentagon - after all, how many billions can you now request from Congress for the Avangard system with the Dagger ... Joy and in the US printing press service personnel group: there will be work, otherwise Trump said it’s time to put an end to a colossal debt. ” In general, stanochek, cook! ..

Well, of course, little believers are right - all this is a bluff on the Soviet backlog. But if you play spy (google well), then strange things start to appear, for example, 2 March 2016, Kiriyenko, being the head of Rosatom, talked about space flights on a nuclear-powered power plant in his report in the State Duma and beat his chest, by the end of 2018, the transport and energy module will be prepared for flight tests. Project price - 20 billion rubles., 17 billion from the budget. I do not mean that 20 billion, but to the fact that Kiriyenko, perhaps, drank, but the reptile, coped with all the projects and pulled Rosatom out of a deep (well, let it be) hollow. And then there's Putin with a small-sized nuclear power plant. Well, this is already trivial - even Capone used to say that it is much easier to convince with a kind word and with a gun than just a kind word. So - such a bluff-like w-around a nuclear power plant is clearly not without purpose. Then, with Angara, too much noise and suspiciously little work, which resembles a veil. In general, we stock up on popcorn and wait, sir. Something interesting must degenerate: type to Mars in a month and a half. We will not kick the mask - his enthusiasm may disappear ahead of time.

Operation Democratic Stripping

In Ukraine, the security forces broke up a protest rally held under the walls of the Verkhovna Rada building.





Wait, wait, that is, how is “Maidan overclocked”? But what about “Ukraine is a country of freedom and democracy,” and what about “Ukrainians are not slaves - they want to protest, they don’t want to protest”? Who dared to unceremoniously tear down the monument to the greatest dignity of the revolution, a tent and a tire in the center of Kiev? Oh yes ... This is not at all the fact that the bloody regime of a corrupt official and dictator Yanukovich. These are the lights of good and democracy, led by their leader - the president of the world! ..

“The parasite” - how many times we hear, but all of one sounds strong ... Perhaps the initial sentence on the title looked even stronger, but then, for correction purposes, decided to add two consonants of the letter “X” and “L "- so that the website of the Ministry of Defense would not be blocked by Roskomnadzor ...

"Second front" in Syria?

Syria and Russia are on the verge of the failure of the “Afrin Round”, said columnist E. Damantsev. The Pentagon and the "Syrian Democratic Forces" (SDF) are already considering opening a "second front." The command of the SDF is developing an offensive operation on an el-Babskiy bridgehead controlled by pro-Turkish formations. The SDFs are removing a large number of fighters from fortified areas who officially restrain the powerful left-bank enclave of terrorists east of Es-Souvar, which, logically, can lead to a weakening of the defensive barrier in front of the pseudo-caliphate and its further spread on the eastern bank of the Euphrates. Using this "information", representatives of the US Armed Forces command are trying to blur the eyes of the world community, stating that "they warn the SDF field commanders about the consequences of distraction from fighting the IS" (prohibited in the Russian Federation).





In fact, the terrorists are “filtered out” of this huge cauldron, and then along the Essa-Suvar-Haseke Highway are being transferred to American training camps in northeastern Syria as cannon-fodder for the newly formed “New Syrian Army”, which apparently will , the main militarized component for hybrid operations against Syrian government forces.

Maybe they will eat ... So who will give them! Afrin - not the most important goal of government forces. Here, they will sort out the suburbs of Damascus, then they will see ... And while there let Turkey fight. And in general, if before there was a dog dump, now ours are consistently knocking out bogeles from various places. The keyword is consistently ...

Khm, I read the first paragraphs of the article and immediately understood who the author is, I now wonder why with such powerful analytical speculations the author is not yet the Chief of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces. If the Americans go to Afrin with their bogeys, then Turkey as a member of NATO can be forgotten, and this is to our advantage. On the laurels Damanceva not claim. IMHO, of course

Apparently, a direct clash with US regular troops became inevitable? Well, they are accomplices of terrorists, and must be knocked out of Syria.

I demand a settlement!

The government of Poland, which has little squabbles in relations with Russia, decided to quarrel with Germany.

Poland estimated the damage inflicted by Germany during World War II at 850 billion dollars. This was stated by Arkadiusz Mulyarchik, the head of the Sejm Reparations Commission. “We are talking about huge but justifiable amounts for ruined cities and villages, the economy and industry. For the lost demographic potential of our country, ”said Mulyarchik, noting that the issue of reparations was not resolved.





The nature of these “claims” is more political than historical. It is probably related to the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project, the main supporter of which in the European Union is Germany. “The simultaneous initiation of the theme of the Polish lawsuit against this country and the complete failure of Polish efforts to torpedo Nord Stream 2, which will deprive Warsaw of easy money for the transit of Russian gas, speaks for itself,” said columnist Y. Selivanov.

This Polish initiative is certainly coordinated with Washington, which has long been trying to push its overseas gas to Europe instead of cheaper Russian.

With the same arguments, claims can be made both to Ukraine and the entire Baltic region, as long as they were part of the USSR and, therefore, the territory of Russia. This is one situation ... Now let them pay for their independence and independence, given that they claim that Russia is an occupier ... Consequently, they recognized the fact of war participation on the German side and legitimizing their accomplices ... Nobody pulled their language ... And do not forget to count, how much was their content in the USSR.

European spring is coming

EU Ambassador to the USA David O'Sullivan made a statement that can be called the first sign of the political spring. There was a “spring” among the Arabs, and now it will strike Europeans who want to be free from American dictate.

According to Mr. O'Sullivan, the Americans want to impose new sanctions against Iran, but these sanctions are "in good conscience" unjustified. And if so, the EU intends to boycott them.

This statement, sensational in its diplomatic and political essence, has a background. At the last UN General Assembly, the French ambassador, Gerard Aro, said: “Iran, China and Russia have made it absolutely clear that there will be no revision of the agreement, it works as it is.” Mrs. Mogherini confirmed: the nuclear deal with Tehran is working.





There was an unusual situation. Against the United States on the same side today are the EU and Russia. And of course, Iran.

Will Mr. Trump go against the collective will of the European Union? Will Brussels and Washington encounter in a diplomatic conflict? If so, how will it end?

The new sanctions policy against Iran could lead to the decision of Iran to develop the very nuclear program. In addition, the new sanctions, issued in a "one-sided" manner, could have an effect on the long-time desire of some EU countries to relax sanctions against Russia. If Washington decides for itself, without its “allies and friends”, what measures against whom to use, then the EU can take a unilateral decision and soften the restrictive measures taken against Russia.

Let's wait for 15 March. On this day, as it is expected, negotiations on the Iranian nuclear program will take place. The maximum period when Trump has to decide something on the Iranian deal comes in May. If the EU reaffirms its determination in March and May and the agreement with Iran is removed, this will mean that the era of American ultimatums is a thing of the past.

The problem is that both the USA and Europe (especially the latter) gradually crawled into the "era of sanctions policy" under the slogan "Caesar Caesar, and locksmith locksmith."
Thus, all the agreements signed earlier, both the WTO and the Iran deal, are interpreted today in the way that is beneficial for the US-EU bond. And this state of affairs is nothing more than a dictate, reinforced by the ringing and rattling of NATO.
In the Anglo-Saxon world finally destroyed the roof of the imaginary impunity. As indicated in his message (far away) GDP 01.03.2018.
And if the United States hopes to sit out for the ocean, then Europe should make a choice: either to renew its independent policy on the Eurasian continent, or to become a sort of US fiction on the European theater of operations.

American, give the name of Russian arms!

The talking heads of the Pentagon pretended that the US Army was not surprised by Putin’s loud statements. US citizens can not worry. According to US military spokeswoman Dana White, the Pentagon is “fully prepared” to defend the country. As for Putin’s goals, then, according to representatives of the American ruling circles, the Russian leader is going to “destabilize” America.

There are other comments on the same topic.

US President Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May spoke and called Vladimir Putin’s statements about the new Russian weapons “irresponsible.”

Michaela Dodge, Heritage Foundation’s anti-missile defense expert at Heritage Foundation, said Putin’s statements confirm the Trump administration’s recent review of nuclear policy and concerns about Moscow’s behavior. According to the Trump administration, Moscow’s actions are fraught with miscalculation, which will lead to an uncontrolled escalation of the conflict in Europe. The review speaks of a Russian doctrine known as “escalating de-escalation”: Moscow may use or threaten to use low-power nuclear weapons in conditions of limited traditional conflict in Europe, hoping that such tactics will force the United States and NATO to “retreat”.





In irony, you can not refuse and Russian. Russians have always been good at joking: the Americans will not lie to you. Just the Americans and addressed a new joke of the Russian Embassy in the United States.

The Russian Embassy in the United States invited American citizens to participate in a competition of names for the newest types of Russian weapons. "Take part in the contest" Name these weapons "announced by Vladimir Putin for a global-range cruise missile, unmanned underwater vehicle and laser weapons," RIA quotes "News»English page of the embassy on Twitter.

Earlier, V. Putin said that the conventional names for the new Russian cruise missile of global range and underwater unmanned system with a nuclear power plant have not yet been selected, and they can be offered on the websites of the Ministry of Defense.

Heather Nauert, Dana White, and Donald Trump himself could arrange a small competition and take part in a Russian competition. Why not? NATO members still have to invent names for their own classification of Russian weapons.

So it seems in 2004, in 2007 and in 2015, specifically for the Americans, leaks were made on Sarmat, on cruise missiles and on Status-6. Are they there already, or what? And the video, where they kill Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi, was, apparently, completely humanistic? The United States, by the way, has mastered the new form of television art "online warfare", showing CNN's "Desert Storm" and "11 September 2001 Attack of the Year."
PS I don’t know how they will call our new weapon, although the name “Trampet your America” is obviously suggesting, but, apparently, there will be something like Putin’s strike.

I thought that before 01.03.2018, Russia was safe ... but no, now it’s definitely safe, only now)))
By the way, if the rocket bypasses all the missile defense and has an UNLIMITED range, why not launch their 20 units, and let them fly over America, they cannot be shot down, and they can fly unlimitedly?)))
And it is completely incomprehensible ... When, after watching our cartoons, these stupid Americans will start paying tribute already ??? How so: we are the strongest in the world, but they do not give up? What to do next then ???


Airfield on the island of strategic importance

The military airfield on the island of the Kurile Ridge of Matua, capable of receiving light military transport planes and helicopters, is guarded and serviced by a unit of the Pacific fleet, commander of the Pacific Fleet Admiral Sergey Avakyants said. “At the moment, a military airfield is located on the island of Matua, which is capable of receiving light military transport aircraft and helicopters. An appropriate infrastructure has been created for the functioning of the airfield, which is protected and maintained by the Pacific Fleet unit. The staff is provided with everything necessary, ”he said in an interview with Red Star.





Matua Island is located in the middle part of the Kuril Ridge and is of strategic importance because it blocks the entrance to the Sea of ​​Okhotsk. During World War II, the island was a Japanese airfield, whose runway was heated by water from hot springs, and a heavy artillery battery. The approach to the island is protected by a system of pillboxes and underground passages, built so soundly that fortifications are suitable for use even now.

In the fall of 2016, the press wrote that Russia had deployed the latest coastal missile systems, the Ball and Bastion, on the Kuril Islands. Combat duty with reinforced batteries is carried by the division of the Bastion complex on Iturup Island and the division of the Bal complex on Kunashir Island, the Pacific Fleet newspaper Fighting Watch reported.

A machine-gun artillery division has been deployed on the islands of the Kuril ridge. In May, the press service of the Eastern Military District informed 2017 that new types of weapons and military equipment, including drones, were sent to the division.

Grudinin and Yavlinsky: a new Kremlin army

Putin decided to revive the Russian economy, but he has no chances, because you can’t lift the economy with propaganda, foreign experts are ironic. They suggest that the Kremlin will soon take nonstandard steps, and it will agree with the opposition. The details are as follows: the Stratfor brain trust admits that the Kremlin would like to "co-opt both Grudinin and Yavlinsky" in order to "turn them into constructive opposition." There are already reports that the Kremlin is supposedly thinking up a “dialogue” with both. Grudinin and Yavlinsky would help “shape” the future policy of Moscow.

Yavlinsky spoke earlier about changing Moscow’s approach to Ukraine and the need to soften relations with the West in order to attract investors and international capital to the country.

Grudinin would help the Kremlin in developing reforms in the pension sphere, as well as in the fight against poverty.





The findings are very interesting. It seems that in the brain trust it is believed that the Kremlin is not able either to strengthen the economy or to overcome the growth of poverty. Where does such confidence from Stratfor come from? Experts are probably skeptical about Putin's economy, which for almost two decades has demonstrated a high dependence on mineral prices, as well as the inability to live self-sufficiently, with the result that the country's economy is constantly threatened with stagnation: the West has enough sanctions to be included. In addition, the long-standing thesis of Western analysts is the lack of structural reforms in Russia, which repels foreign investors.

Hence the conclusion that can be considered both serious and ironic. There seems to be no one in the entire Kremlin who could raise the national economy and smooth out social tensions. And that's why the Kremlin will invite Grudinin and Yavlinsky to the role of specialists. Two of these comrades will eliminate poverty in Russia, attract foreign investment from abroad, adjust the pension system and increase the growth rate of the Russian economy. As a result, the electorate will be satisfied, the opposition will be driven into a stall, and Putin will continue to rule happy people.

Non-professional Western analyst on the economic situation in Russia. V. Putin will not help anything with the existing oligarchic model of “development” of liberal capitalism, since it is sharpened by the interests of the comprador oligarchy, which has turned Russia into a feeder for earning money and taking it abroad to itself, loved ones. For them, the people and the country are only a source of personal enrichment.

Straw underlay.
Both Putin and Grudinin are candidates from the power system. Only from different groups. Putin want to leave St. Petersburg, they have everything in the ointment. And Grudinina is being promoted by security officials, who are well aware that even 6 has years of such a policy, and the reality of a social explosion will increase by several times.
And to calm the electorate Putin will have to be dirty to merge. And now he could leave as a follower of the Crimea and a hero of Syria.


KAV
Come on, come on! What are these security forces promoting Grudinina ?! Are you, by the way, not from a parallel reality?


Greenwood
Grudinina is promoted by a coalition of leftist-patriotic forces, which finally overcame the differences and began to act as a united front with the Communist Party of the Russian Federation. It is a pity that they were not supported by the Mironovskaya fair-trading party, which showed their utter futility and political impotence. And the same Baburin, like the “communist” -balabol Suraykin, could also join the ranks of the coalition.


Mr McFaul and Russian toilet paper

No one has the right to ignore Russia, rapidly advancing, reports the foreign press. The time has passed when the enemies of the Russians could sneer at the weakening country. But they began to rot ... the United States!

And the pace of decay is so high that President Trump has already announced the death of two types of American industry. Trump expressed his attitude to the issue via Twitter: “We lost almost all trade deals. Our friends and enemies used the USA for many years. Our steel and aluminum industries are dead. Sorry, it's time for a change! MAKE AMERICA AGAIN GREAT! ”

In addition, the United States has decayed morally, in its "pleasures" dropping to the bottom. Such a conclusion was made by American conservatives.

They tried hard to answer Michael McFaul: he recalled how he stood in the USSR in line for toilet paper and bananas. The former ambassador tweeted: “Putin may have forgotten what it is to stand for an hour in the queue for bananas in the Soviet Union. I have not forgotten. Mr. McFaul developed his thought about the Soviet deficit, recalling that he lived in the USSR in 1983, 1985, 1989 and in 1990-1991. and long stood in line for "rough toilet paper and skinny chickens."





While McFaul recalls toilet paper, the Russian people sincerely regret the collapse of the USSR. And this is why: the USSR was a real superpower and knew how to be self-sufficient, which cannot be said from market-dependent Russia, which is driven into capitalist trepidation and the price of oil with gas, and Western sanctions, and the next “Kremlin lists”, because of which other "patriots" suddenly become citizens of Malta.

Does the Russian people feel nostalgic for queues for bananas and toilet paper? It can be assumed that only McFaul has such memories.

States rot because of their parasitic essence. And this essence manifested itself precisely because there was no geopolitical counterweight. If the Union had not collapsed, we would have been threatened with a catastrophic 3MB at its worst when the opponents had maximum charge reserves: we had about 10 thousand strategic on media ready for immediate launch and about 15 thousand tactical tactical weapons in operational readiness. Americans - about the same, a little less. Compare with the current state ... Mutual annihilation is no longer guaranteed if we succeed in knocking down warheads above 8 thousand m, since there are constant currents blowing there that quickly “spread” radioactivity over the entire sphere of the Earth.

Europe is not the same today

The results of the elections to the Italian Parliament struck both Italy and the entire European Union. So-called populists got the majority of votes, and with them Euro skeptics who oppose migration policies. Traditional parties were defeated. Other European analysts are already talking about the victory in Italy ... Putin. Of course: where without Putin!





The positions of Euroscepticism, on which election winners stand, are not specific to Italy alone. And, perhaps, Moscow could use these sentiments. But not at all for the collapse of the EU and NATO, as the omnipresent conspiracy therapists and supporters of the “Putin’s cunning plan” write about. And to ease the sanctions. The Russian economy is far from being in the best shape, and the weakening of the sanction strangulation would give it an impetus to development. Of course, the revival of trade with Russia would also be useful for the growth of the GDP of the same Italy: after all, the anti-Russian sanctions hurt her.

Earlier, Euroskeptics of Hungary and Austria, and also in Poland, showed impressive results in the elections. Quite good results were also demonstrated by the so-called ultranationalists of the Netherlands, Germany and France.

This kind of national expressions of expression repeatedly shocked Brussels, which extremely negatively reacts to the strengthening of not only “populist” and “pro-Kremlin”, but also frankly anti-immigrant moods. The latter concerns the entire European Union. As a result, Brussels is beginning to suspect that the former united Europe needs cardinal reforms, otherwise the union will break from the inside.

While Brussels pulls, "populists" win elections and offer their solutions. Bureaucracy pulls the EU to the bottom.

And this is just the beginning! Who is next?
And in fact, sensible politicians won. It will be difficult to negotiate with them if they persistently defend their own interests, the interests of Italy. But with them contracts are possible. The current leaders of Italy and the European Union in many respects often obediently followed in the wake of the US policy, looking down at the Americans in the mouth. Now this policy ends. True, I do not think that sanity in the European Union will come quickly - for this you need a few more such victories.

Well done comedian Grillo! He understood the essence well, that from a great to ridiculous one step, but vice versa! ..

In connection with the victory in Putin’s elections in Italy, it would be logical to hold a referendum on secession of Italy from the European Union and entry into the Russian Federation.

    US President Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May spoke and called Vladimir Putin’s statements about the new Russian weapons “irresponsible.”

    Apparently long thought "for two"! laughing But Napoleoshka broke off something, apparently wondering with whom he would then walk.

      A decent selection for the week

      US President Donald Trump said he will abolish the increased duties on steel and aluminum, which caused indignation in Europe. “If they remove their terrible obstacles and duties on American products, we will also remove theirs. Big deficit”- he wrote yesterday on the page in Twitter. At the same time, Trump noted that if Europe does not agree to the conditions left, then Washington may introduce an increased tax on cars in the future. "If not, we will tax cars and so on. Fair!"

        In the future, Washington may introduce an increased tax on cars.
        But something similar has already been done by US President Bush in 2002. What then happened? After Bush introduced duties, the S&P 500 stock index ultimately lost about 30%, the dollar has weakened. Capital began to go to the debt market, which led to a twofold drop in treasury yields. Recall that at the end of last week, when Trump actually announced the introduction of duties on imports of steel and aluminum, the markets responded with a strong decline. Portal "News. Economy."
        The S&P 500 stock index "won back" half of the first "drawdown" and does not want to grow further, the history of 2002 repeats itself. And cycles megacrisis: 1998 - 2008 - 2018 ??

      One time a former GRU employee was poisoned on time. He probably paid for the newsletter absolutely incorrectly given to his patrons that Russia is far from supersonic and the capabilities of others shown at the speech of the GDP to the Federal Assembly ... oh, very far ...
      And so - and the liar was punished (maybe "White Helmets" were noted? lol ), and the reason for the accusations of the Russian Federation created

    Well, the presidential election is just around the corner! Now, this week, an even more massive stream of lies and misinformation will flood our country. A quasi-state, just this week, can start a new, even more powerful massacre in the Donbass — peacefully and quietly, there will not be time until the elections. It is still unknown what meanness the Yankees in Syria, or in North Korea will try to stir up.

      About Grudinin and Yavlinsky .. They will not co-opt anywhere. Moreover, Yavlinsky. The Kremlin needs them only before the elections .. About the French. And these are well-known political antisocial elements. Today they will say one thing tomorrow. About gas .. We will live and see. then they will impose such fines that there will be no need to supply blue fuel. For all the same, Russia will be to blame.

      The Paralympic Games-2018 ends on March 18, a big “fist” was pulled to the Donbas APU, but Santa Claus with the beautiful granddaughter Snegurochka, at the “numerous requests of the workers”, were in no hurry to finish their “tour”. Gazprom rolled out such a watermelon to Ukraine (it could not have done without the approval of the president) that the partners would not soon “digest” it. Maybe Vladimir Vladimirovich will regret the fraternal people and will not let him freeze, will resume gas supplies until 2019, but the elections will go quietly. Who knows what other "counter-surprises" he has prepared.

        Today, in the province of Damascus, the hostages of terrorists have been released by the forces of the Syrian army. The operation took place in the area of ​​East Guta, in the village of Misraba. According to information SANA agencies, bandits forcibly kept people. Among the released hostages there are many women and children, the message says. With the participation of Russia, a humanitarian corridor was organized to withdraw people and a truce was declared. For several days, gunmen fired on the corridor and did not allow people to leave.

    The management of Naftogaz said that it is seeking “written” contacts with the leadership of Russian Gazprom in order to “resume the execution of the contract by the Russian side”

    If before the capital's cheers-patriots were trumpeting that the Kerch bridge would soon collapse, today Kiev has expressed a desire to take it from the Russian Federation, which sounds, at least, ridiculous.
    So, Ukraine will turn to the European Bailiff Service for seizing the Krymsky Bridge as an interim measure to pay Gazprom a debt of $ 2.56 billion.
    The appeal has already been sent to CEP units in the UK, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and France. Until the end of March, similar requests will be sent to at least 22 European countries, as well as China, Canada, the United States and Morocco.
    The preliminary cost of the bridge is set, taking into account the degree of its readiness, at $ 1.73 billion, which according to Kiev is about 70% of the payments due to it.
    Note that cunning Ukrainian officials are looking for as many ways as possible to strip money not only from their people, but also from other countries. Having become angry with the Russian Gazprom for terminating the contract, Kiev announced its intention to collect about three billion hryvnias from the Russian Federation for flights of Russian airlines to Simferopol airport.

      Izya, you don’t know everything yet. Poroshenko met with bloggers. Here are their feedback:

      «When the conversation turned to Russian aggression and the actions of its mongrels inside the country, the President’s voice suddenly turned into a clang of metal. This is not to play. It is inside. At the mention of Putin's surname, a heavy palm crashed across the table. I thought that the legs would fold and the coffee table would fall into the basement. For Ukraine will tear! For the army will tear! For the patrol police will tear! ” - he wrote on his page on the social network.

      “A fighter, of which there are few. Such people alone can decide the outcome of the battle. There are many examples in history when, as it seemed, the flinching army eventually crushed the enemy, going on the attack for the leader, ”he continued.

      [i] “Excellent strategist and tactician. If sitting with him on a chessboard, an opponent starts playing Chapaev and thimbles at the same time, then Poroshenko will defeat him anyway, while continuing to play chess! And then it will be erased into powder! ” - wrote the blogger.

      “We can treat, respect or hate him differently (this is very fashionable now), but the fact is obvious - there is no stronger politician in Ukraine today and the Kremlin understands this very well. That is why they are doing their best to remove the figure of the current President of Ukraine from the board! ” - Petrov completed his story on a fantastic note. yes

    At the end of the week, it was completely imperceptible for the Russian authorities to draw the proper conclusions on the continuation of the "bloodless" assistance to the Syrian people. And all these "Mikhanov" concerns about "difficult officers" refer only to the fact that the life of ordinary soldiers by the command is much less appreciated, as it was. And the conduct of hostilities in Syria in no way affected the change in battle tactics. It’s even disgusting to see that exercises in Russia (tankers and motorized rifles of the Zvezda channel) are held the same way as 35 years ago. Teams on a portable radio station weighing 14 kg and a line of cars ... fool

Afanasyev, Yu. Boldyrev, E. Bonner, Boxer, M. Bocharov, G. Burbulis, E. Gaidar, B. Yeltsin, S. Kovalev, V. Lukin, A. Murashov, A. Nuikin , L. Ponomarev, G. Popov, M. Poltoranin, A. Sakharov, A. Sobchak, S. Stankevich, G. Starovoitova, A. Chubais, N. Shmelev, G. Yavlinsky and many others. "

          Ironically, among the approximately three thousand “reformist political activists” held in 1992-1996. "training" in the line of the named American programs, there was Vladimir Putin (representatives of the National Democratic Institute worked with him), currently characterized by Michael McFaul, who has for many years been an NDI consultant in Moscow, as a potential 'Russian Milosevic', whose election as president of Russia is not a 'positive step' for US interests.

          So there are no "saints" in Russian politics by definition. Each has its own "skeleton in the closet."
          Threat. At the end of the paragraph, McFaul complains that "he put the wrong horse."

In 1608, being Metropolitan of Rostov, captured by Tushins in Rostov, in 1610 he was recaptured from Tushins, was soon appointed to the embassy to Sigismund III, where he was again taken prisoner, and he was tried hard "crap ". On June 1, 1619, he was released (in the exchange of prisoners) in accordance with the terms of the Deulin Armistice of 1618, and June 24, his intronization according to the order of delivery of the first Moscow Patriarch made the former in Moscow Jerusalem Patriarch Theophan III, who approved the creation Moscow Patriarchate as part of the Orthodox Church.

    Nice review, thanks. Here you can also see the "otvetka" of NATO in the form of Kaeakhstan’s refusal to us in space models.

    On TV, they somehow showed how we choose the name for the weapon. Depending on the category, the designers are assigned the first letter of the name, and then let them put what letters they want. You can put any nonsense, they will still accept. As far as I understand from what was said there.
