Russia canceled arms embargo on Libya

Russia canceled arms embargo on Libya

Russia decided to abolish financial, oil and weapons the embargo imposed earlier against Libya in connection with the civil war that arose there. This was stated today by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Alexander Lukashevich. The decree on measures to implement the resolution of the UN Security Council, providing for the removal of all Libyan enterprises from the embargo regime, was signed by the President of Russia, RIA reportsNews".

In particular, Lukashevich noted, restrictions on the sale of all types of weapons, as well as on financial transactions with the Libyan oil company, the Central Bank and the country's foreign bank, have been lifted.

At the same time, the representative of the Foreign Ministry noted that the Russian side will continue to seek the transfer of its citizens under the care of the Russian Embassy in Tripoli until their case is considered in court. This is, we recall, about Vladimir Dolgov and Alexander Shadrov, whom the new Libyan authorities accuse of assisting the troops of Muammar Gaddafi.

At the same time, Lukashevich said that the words of the head of the Syrian National Council, calling on other countries to arm the Free Syrian Army, "cause bewilderment in Moscow." “We are puzzled by the statement made by the recently re-elected leader of the Syrian National Council, Mr. Galyun, regarding the elaboration of a new strategy for establishing political control of the Syrian National Council over Syrian rebels in order to overthrow the Bashar Assad regime,” the representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

He also did not rule out that the composition of the UN observer mission currently staying in Syria may have to be increased due to the situation in the country, which continues to be unstable. However, this decision remains exclusively the prerogative of the organization, Lukashevich said, adding that observers need, among other things, to provide helicopters for ease of movement.

He touched upon the Russian Foreign Ministry official and the situation around the problems with the implementation of the Annan plan for Syria. According to Lukashevich, they are trying to wreck him in order to "unleash a spiral of violence" in the country.

It also became known that the Norwegian ambassador to Russia had made a presentation. The reason for this was the forum in Oslo, the capital of Norway, in which Akhmed Zakayev, wanted by the Russian authorities, took part.

Another topic that Lukashevich touched on was anti-Russian events held in Turkey. "It is unacceptable to hold events in Turkey whose participants directly threaten the territorial integrity of the Russian Federation and the safety of its citizens," he said, adding that this situation "overshadows" relations between the two countries.

In addition, Lukashevich also mentioned the Russian businessman Viktor Bout, who is in an American prison. Earlier, we recall that the United States stated that it was ready to consider the extradition of an entrepreneur who received 25 years of imprisonment on charges of arms trade to Russia if a request was received. "Ready for dialogue with the United States to find a solution to return Viktor Bout to his homeland, including the use of international legal mechanisms," concluded Lukashevich.

        but on the other hand .. marriage and decayed products also need to be drained somewhere laughing

        I already see the contented face of the foreman looking around a bunch of trash in a warehouse that our army does not need

        it remains to recruit advertising specialists by the way to our army. to do everything with special effects. beautiful banners, commercials. the engine of trade after all. Not all the same only to advertise in war. You can remove it beautifully and in the hangar.

        By the way, thank you very much to the Zvezda TV channel in this regard. The guys have been doing their job competently lately. More quality cameras for war correspondents. For better materials and cuts.

        It seems to me even the most ardent and old "trash" can be promoted. Paint and sell. "Friends"

        And make a warehouse for the "CSTO" with quality goods
        and a warehouse for "Friends" (figuratively)

        although I think everything is there and it is approximately laughing

          Medvedev hands over to the GXNUMX Iran and Syria

          American journalists, summing up the working lunch of the G18 leaders last night on May 8, stated that Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, who represents Russia at the 38th GXNUMX summit in Camp David, generally agrees on assessments of the situation in Iran and Syria with other leaders of the GXNUMX countries (Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Canada, USA, France and Japan)

          “Regarding Russia in connection with Iran and Syria: the Russians to a very large extent come forward with us in negotiations on Iran on a united front. We have a strong unity in this matter, and not only with Russia, ”the pool said in a statement sent to the News Agency by the White House press service.

          The issue of the Iranian nuclear program, as expected, was in the spotlight of the G8 leaders.

          “The G8 stressed that it is necessary to solve the problem by negotiating and at the same time increasing pressure on Iran ... The G8 believes that it is urgent to solve this problem, and Iran must take concrete steps to prove that its nuclear program is peaceful. Nobody expects to solve all the problems in Baghdad (the next round of talks of the Six on Iran will take place in Baghdad). The GXNUMX leaders want to make sure that the Iranians understand the need to take concrete steps, ”the pool said in a report.

          “When the conversation turned to Syria, there was no disagreement over the fact that a certain political transition was needed there. As for the nature of this transition, this issue will be worked out in the coming days. Medvedev did not dispute the need for a political process in the country that would meet the needs of the Syrian people, ”the pool said.

          Speaking about Syria, the GXNUMX leaders also discussed Kofi Annan’s plan and stated the need for its implementation.

      A parliamentary group "Friends of Ukraine" will be created in the European Parliament

      This was announced at a press conference by a member of the European Parliament, vice-chairman of the Committee on International Trade Pavel Zalewski.

      He stressed that this association was created to support Ukraine on its way to European integration. According to the deputy, the group "Friends of Ukraine" will include representatives of various parties from different European countries. Therefore, the association will be complex and comprehensive both in terms of political orientation and in terms of the representation of countries, Pavel Zalewski noted.

    Well, let’s say that the Turks don’t really hide what is under the Americans, and the anti-Russian mood is clear from where. And with the Syrian rebels, it suggests that someone (well, we know who smile ) cut the "financing" of their activities, so they call on the rest of the "members" to help with weapons.

    To this I would add more measures to support freedom fighters in Afghanistan, and all this was spiced up with the words of R. Reagan - “Watching how brave Afghans fight against modern military equipment with simple weapons is a real inspiration for all who love freedom. teaches us a critical lesson - there are things worth protecting in this world. On behalf of all Americans, I say to the people of Afghanistan - we admire your heroism, your dedication to freedom, your ongoing struggle against your oppressors. " ... HOW BEAUTIFUL AND UP-TO-DATE SOUNDS FOR AFGHANISTAN IN MODERN CONDITIONS ...

    It is also necessary to support the fighters for independent Kurdistan and the Kurds oppressed by the Turkish tyrant .........

    And of course, it is necessary to support those who want freedom and democracy for Libya, because the leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Libyan Galyun (the sailors must have fallen out of laughter ...) appears to be an agent of al-Qaeda, and the latter is a secret division of the American intelligence services, created yet in the 80s, gentlemen Brzezinski, Bush Sr. (later the head of the CIA), R. Gates (at that time hanging around in this region and implicated in the scandal with Iran-contra) .....

      The trouble is that our diplomats have ceased to be logical - Kosovo, Iraq, Libya - that after the arrival of Western "democracy" there, people in these countries began to live better? Without strong power, as life shows, peace is not possible in these countries, but as soon as the power is shaken, there is a mess, there are too many people who like to fish in troubled waters.

    But the meaning is to lift the embargo now. Who needs the equipment there? These monkeys or tribes who share oil. Kadaffi died, what is the point of selling now if the Americans have democratized it. I am sometimes amazed at the stupidity of our ministers and deputies.

    Iran has been bargaining with the C300 for a long time, it is not our fault that they are without weapons. Do you remember when YUS bombed Yugoslavia? How many indignation among the people! Even someone tried to rush from a grenade launcher at their embassy. But Russia still did not support the Slav brothers. And any Persians will not support even more so.
