Victory of the Syrian army. Over the past 48 hours, the Syrian army conducted a major operation on the approaches to Damascus. The entire region of Eastern Guta within a radius of 50 km from the city is under the control of the troops, reports today from Beirut correspondent ITAR-TASS Dmitry Zelenin.




Militants prompted to fold weapon and stop the bloodshed. According to the service News Al-Watan newspapers, reports on the futility of resistance are received on mobile phones in areas where armed groups operate (in Adra, Duma, Harast, Mlikh, Jubar, Yabrud and Zabadani). “Those who refuse to give up will be destroyed. The Syrian army is advancing, ”warns the command.

According to Al-Watan, a full cleansing of settlements has begun - from the area of ​​Damascus International Airport to Dumeirah All sections of local roads are blocked, along which weapons enter the rebels and along which reinforcements move from Jordan and Turkey. Badia is also blocked, a desert area in the direction of the border with Iraq.

In the communiqué of the SAR Armed Forces Command, it is emphasized that "a well-prepared tactical operation will continue until the complete expulsion of armed gangs from the Damascus environs and the restoration of security there."

Syrian troops, advancing from the southern flank to rebel positions in Aleppo, also achieved success. According to the Al-Mayadin TV channel, after several days of fighting, the Aziza settlement, located at strategic heights in the area of ​​the highway to the international airport of the northern capital, was liberated yesterday. Nearby to them, to the southeast of the city, is Neirab military airfield.

In Homs, as reported by Al-Mayadin, special units cut two neighboring quarters, Jurat al-Shiyah and Khalidiya, which are still being held by militants.

Near Latakia, the troops destroyed the bridgehead of armed extremist Islamists from Dzhebhat al-Nusra. Among the liquidated terrorists are Saudi and Libyan mercenaries.

Islamists from Germany. Hans George Masen, an employee of the German secret service, said that the number of German citizens who are leaving for Syria is growing to join terrorist groups, reports SANA.

In an interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper, he stated that, according to his information, Syria had become a new center of attraction for the jihadists from Germany. The security services suggest that in the SAR are from 20 to 30 German citizens.

Referring to sources in the special services, the newspaper also reported that in Syria, there are Islamist militants from Europe from 500 to 700. This represents 10% of the number of foreign fighters, which are supposed to be from 5 to 6 thousand. Most of the militants arrived in the country from Iraq, Libya and Tunisia.

Earlier, reminds SANA, the research center "Radical" in London reported that hundreds of extremists - citizens of fourteen European countries (Germany, Great Britain, France, Holland, countries of Eastern Europe) - went to Syria to participate in terrorist activities, mainly under the banner of Al-Qaida.

The head of the United World information center in Germany, Said Dudin, stressed that the German special services are partners to support armed groups in Syria. He said that Chancellor Angela Merkel is aware that German intelligence services provide assistance to groups in Syria and are involved in sending militants to the UAR.

Rumors of Hamas. Nicholas Blenford from «The Times» (translation source - "Inopressa") reports that Hamas is supposedly gone over to another camp: now it helps the Syrian rebels.

The military wing of Hamas, a former ally of Assad, is now training fighters from the Free Syrian Army in the east of Damascus. Sources in diplomatic circles say that members of the Ezzedin Al-Qassam Brigades teach SSA units in the rebel-occupied Yalda, Jaraman and Babbil quarters, the journalist writes. Apparently, this confirms that Hamas broke with Assad and completely passed under the patronage of Qatar.

The correspondent quotes the words of an unnamed "Western diplomat with connections at the top of the Assad regime and the Syrian opposition": "The Qassam Brigades" train units very close to Damascus. These are specialists. They are really good at their business. ” “Other sources said that Hamas instructors are helping the SSA to dig tunnels in at least one Damascus district, for which there is a rivalry, in preparation for the expected assault on the city center,” he writes.

However, Hamas denies any such ties, the author notes. A senior Hamas official, Osama Hamdan, who lives in Lebanon, said: “This is a lie. In Syria, there are neither members of Ezzedin al-Qassam, nor members of Hamas fighters. We do not interfere in the internal problems of Syria. There are normal civilians, Syrian Palestinians living there with their families. ”

However, Palestinian sources say: if Hamas sent military instructors to Damascus, then at the request of Qatar, and not by a unilateral decision of its own leadership. “Qatar has become Hamas’s chief financier since the movement broke with the Assad regime, and the flow of funds from Iran has slowed,” the newspaper said.

"Cargo delivery". Large landing ships of the Pacific fleet Russia, "Admiral Nevelsky" and "Relight" in the second half of May will call at the Syrian port of Tartus. According to the General Staff of the Navy, one of the tasks - the delivery of goods, transfers Interfax.

“A detachment of ships of the Pacific Fleet, led by the large anti-submarine ship Admiral Panteleyev, will perform a number of combat training missions in the Mediterranean as a part of the inter-fleet group of the Navy. In addition, one of the main points of the long-range cruise plan for large landing ships of the Admiral Nevelsky and Peresvet detachments will be the delivery of cargoes to the Syrian port of Tartus in the second half of May, ”the source told the news agency.

Also, the representative of the General Staff explained that since the forces of the Pacific Fleet did not participate in the January inter-fleet exercises of the Navy deployed in the waters of the Mediterranean and Black Seas, it was decided to postpone their combat interaction with groups of other fleets during the summer period.

According to the interlocutor, the Russian ships in the framework of a long voyage will go to the ports of several states in the region, including Vietnam and Iran.

Palestine requires Israel to clarify boundaries. On April 7, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, at a meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry, said that Palestine would not return to negotiations until Israel stopped building settlements.

In addition, the Palestinian President wants Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to present a map of the future borders of the Palestinian state before the start of negotiations. He noted that the Palestinians are seeking a state within the borders of 1967, with its capital in East Jerusalem.

As previously noted by the head of the Palestinian Foreign Ministry Riyad al-Maliki, Abbas’s position has not changed and was previously brought to the American side, so he met with the Secretary of State, at his request, to hear the proposals, convey "Vesti" with reference to ITAR-TASS.

John Kerry went to Ramallah after arriving in Israel. Then he returned to Jerusalem, where today he will take part in events dedicated to the Holocaust Remembrance Day, and will also meet with Shimon Peres. On the same day, he is scheduled to meet with Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad in Ramallah, and the Secretary of State will hold talks with the head of the Israeli government on April 9.

“The position of Western partners is somewhat disappointing ...” The "six" of intermediaries and Iran could not find mutual understanding during the next round of talks held in Almaty. However, the parties made a “step forward,” said Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov. Participants acknowledged that much remains to be done to solve the problem, reports Elizaveta Kuznetsova ("Voice of Russia").

After the talks in Alma-Ata, the “six” and the IRI will have to do their homework, comrade Ryabkov said. He noted that “the parties are ready to make contact, there is a willingness to hold a new round”. The Russian diplomat also explained that the negotiations were intensive, “with a great insight into the details,” but according to their results “an ambiguous picture took shape.” “We hope that the date and place of the new full-format round will be determined in the near future. The current negotiations of the “six” with Iran are certainly a step forward, ”said the Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation.

Russia believes that it is necessary to recognize all the rights of Iran, including the right to enrich uranium in exchange for control of the IAEA, the Russian Deputy Foreign Minister said. “From the standpoint of the expectations of the Iranians, the position of the Western partners is somewhat disappointing,” Ryabkov said. “We also have disappointments: Russia believes that recognition of all Iran’s rights is necessary, including (right) to enrichment in exchange for IAEA control.”

Against General Musharraf, who on March 24 returned to Pakistan from voluntary expulsion, formal accusations were made of violations of the constitution and the organization of the killing of political opponents. Opponents of the ex-president, who call him a dictator, consider his status of the accused to be a sufficient basis for a ban on his participation in the elections. Nevertheless, the chairman of the election commission in Chitral, which is located near the border with Afghanistan, said that the documents of the former head of state are in order, and the court has not yet caught his crimes.

Musharraf is charged with: a) the unlawful dismissal and arrest of Supreme Court judges in 2007; b) organizing the assassination of one of the Baloch tribe leaders, Akbar Bukti, in 2006; c) the organization of the assassination of opposition leader Benazir Bhutto in 2007.

Angela Merkel protects the rights of NGOs. On April 7, the German Chancellor at the opening of the Hannover Industrial Exhibition defended Russian non-profit organizations in the presence of President Vladimir Putin.

“We must lead a more intensive discussion, develop our positions in the dialogue, and also give NGOs and other organizations that in Germany play the role of an engine of innovation in Russia,” the head of the German government quoted as saying RBC with reference to Deutsche Welle.

The open society, the chancellor believes, is the guarantor of the welfare of the state. Angela Merkel is convinced of the need for the existence of an “active civil society” in Russia.

Probably add on our own, in Germany they believe that, since Russia has a “need” for the existence of a civil society, then it, that is, this very society, does not yet exist. And, obviously, the backbone of "active" civil society can be just the NGOs financed by the West. Well, and who else should finance them, if not the West, in particular, the USA? After all, the West in general is the guarantor of world democracy and open societies around the world. In the one who does not believe in it, rockets are flying.

“The battle did not last long: timid Georgians fled!” Over two hundred conscript soldiers left the location of a military unit in eastern Georgia without permission. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to Georgia Online. One deserter explained the general step of not wanting to follow the order of the commander ... to clean the latrines.

This soldier said in an interview with Rustavi 2 TV channel: “We, the soldiers, are there to learn the art of war, and not to scrub toilets. If it is priority for them to scrub toilets, for us it was unacceptable and we left. ”

According to the Georgian media, the soldiers left the Paldo field camp, covered the distance of 15 kilometers on foot, and then returned home using various means. They left weapons in parts.

Colonel Irakli Dzneladze, head of the joint headquarters of the Georgian armed forces, confirmed to journalists that the servicemen had left the unit without permission. At the same time, Dzneladze stressed that the order given to the soldiers was in accordance with the established schedule and was not aimed at degrading their dignity. “Whoever does not fulfill his duties will not be a soldier,” the colonel emphasized. - The internal routine includes cleaning the barracks and that's it. ”

Latvians left to exist thirty years. And maybe ten. Lawyer Andris Grutups, whose opinion is transmitted by Apollo.lv, believes that the Latvian nation may disappear in 30 years. “If you look at the number of people leaving the country, it is not difficult to calculate how many people will remain here by the 2042 year. Incomplete 30 years - and everything, the nation will not be ", - quotes his words "Lenta.ru".

What contributes to the disappearance of the Latvian nation?

According to DELFI, the lawyer stated that the idea of ​​a liberal economy realized in the 1990s crashed in Latvia. Here and the closure of factories left over from Soviet times, and the hopes of Latvians that they will live "at the expense of agriculture, transport and banks." Then the lawyer complained about the absence of a national ideology in the country, noting at the same time that now in Latvia a lot of traitors have accumulated who would welcome "strangers Tanks».

The lawyer is not alone in his fears. The fact that the existence of Latvia was under threat, said the President of the Republic Andris Berzins earlier, reminds Lenta. The reason for this, along with a reduction in the population, he called the inefficiency of the state apparatus. "We have created an expensive and inefficient state administration, unnecessary to our small state," he stated in an interview with Telegraph. - You can not manage a country with a population of 2 million as well as with a population of 40 — 50 million. This is stupid. If you continue this way, it will not take ten years for us to disappear. ”

Thus, we note that if a lawyer gives Latvians another thirty years, the president is inclined to reduce this period to ten.

In the period from 2000 to 2010, the population of Latvia, according to the Central Statistical Bureau, decreased by 13 percent (a decrease of 307 thousand people). This was mainly caused by emigration.

At Smolensk Square, at the same time, they stressed that the priority in this situation is the safety of Russian citizens. “We are now studying the situation with all the developments. Unfortunately, she is going in the wrong direction. This is a concern. The task of ensuring the safety of our citizens comes to the forefront, ”said Interfax source in the Russian Foreign Ministry.

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov explained that before deciding on the proposal of the DPRK to evacuate the Russian diplomatic mission, it is necessary to clarify the details. “The proposal was sent to those embassies in Pyongyang, and we are now trying to clarify this situation. We asked a few questions that in this case it was necessary to ask our North Korean neighbors, and we are in close contact with our Chinese partners, as well as with the Americans and South Koreans, and with the Japanese, in general, with participants in the six-party talks, "said Lavrov told reporters in Tashkent on Friday. He stressed that the DPRK did not decide on the evacuation of diplomats, but made only such a proposal.

Since this activity is similar to the one that was carried out before the third test, we carefully observe this test site, ”said the official representative of the South Korean authorities.

“In addition, we received information that Pyongyang will soon conduct a new nuclear test. Now we are analyzing the situation in order to establish whether this is really the case or is it just a means of exerting pressure on Seoul and Washington, ”ITAR-TASS explained there.

As for the launch of the rocket, we are talking about a medium-range system capable of flying up to 3 thousands of kilometers. The North Koreans transferred a mobile launcher with a rocket into the area of ​​the city of Wonsan on the east coast, which they can launch at any time.

    It is curious that if our ships undergo a torpedo attack and the Admiral Panteleev cannot sink an attacking submarine, whom will our NATO leadership blame? Turkey? Israel?

    And whether any actions will be taken besides expressing indignation and shaking of the air (For example, the oil fields of Qatar will themselves fly into the air). After all, if not Turkey, not NATO, not Israel, then the Syrian terrorists come out)))), and Qatar is financing them.

        And how else can you deliver the goods to Syria. The Turks will land and search through the air, and if they find that, they will raise the noise to heaven. By the sea from Novorossiysk - again the Turks are sitting in the Bosphorus. And from the Northern Fleet, Gibraltar will definitely need to go further.

    "According to the agency's interlocutor, Chuck Hagel ordered the postponement of the missile tests due to the existing fears that the launch may be misunderstood and will further aggravate the situation with the DPRK."

      The whole point is that some of the previous launches of the Minuteman were unsuccessful, they had to use self-detonation in one case, and in the second, the Minuteman ICBM located at the launch site did not accept the command to launch from the Boeing E-6 Mercury communications aircraft and was launched by a team with And these are significant shoals, we have never had anything like that with standard launches of missiles standing on the base. All this happened back in 2011. In 2012, there was a successful launch with an advanced training warhead Mk21, which was equipped with a new device for removing the safety and detonation. Like everything so far with regards to the Minutemans ..
      Here the reason must be sought either in the sequestration of the budget, or in what has been rumored recently that the minitymen, for the most part, are already firewood, and the launch did not take place due to technical problems.
      back in 2008, on the eve of the start of the preparation of START-3, the scientific council of the US Department of Defense issued a special memorandum warning of a potential threat posed by new Russian missile developments, in particular from the RSM-54 Sineva submarine ICBM and the RT-2PM2 missile system "Topol M". According to the US military, American ground-based nuclear forces will not be able to withstand the new Russian missiles. Then Obama promised to radically modernize the remaining Minuteman ICBMs, which was one of the conditions on which the US Senate agreed to ratify the START-3 agreements.



      In the video, it’s just a launch that ended in failure to undermine a rocket over the Pacific Ocean near the Kwajilein Atoll due to an error in the exchange rate parameters.

      Again in Serbia, it’s not calm:

      About a thousand soldiers of the Kosovo Security Forces with full equipment passed through the southern part of Kosovo Mitrovica. They conducted tactical exercises in the direction of southern Mitrovitsa - Bair - Vaganitsa, according to a number of characteristics resembling the direction of Suvi Dol - Brjani - Zvecan, where the Albanians have been actively trying to penetrate recently and where there has been a particularly intense confrontation between the Serbs and Albanians.

      Boyan Yakovlevich, a member of the Serbian team in the negotiations between Belgrade and Pristina, said that these exercises pose a threat to the aggravation of the situation in the province, however, the Serbs have something to protect themselves if someone tries to attack them.

    The victories of the Syrian army cheers! And there was so much scream from the militants that now they’ll go to Damascus! I hope they will bring the necessary weapons to Syria and Iran. Regarding the disappearance of Latvians, I can only say - goodbye, I hope we will not meet again)). Palestine has always been, and what is Israel? They gave Israel a little land, so rejoice, but Jerusalem is not your city and in general - after the Latvians can it dissolve among the masses? No offense - the Holocaust evr .. in I do not approve, as in other Holocaust other nations more than you have suffered - Russian for example. And why is it that we don’t get anywhere on the globe of the earth? Gr.zina is generally super - keep it up, just fight like toilets clean!

    It’s clear that Merkel protects NGOs, because she’s just a puppet which runs the United States. I think she should be reminded of this from the lips of Putin himself (if he had not done so already). The financing of these NPOs is carried out to a greater extent not from the United States, but from Germany, which are managed from the West. Even a blind person will understand that everything that is interesting to the Yankees will be interesting to the Germans as well.

    Such thoughts usually occur in the henchmen of power or in people with intellectual disabilities. For a normal person sees that all the accomplices of Putin from beginning entrepreneurs have all become dollar billionaires. If I am mistaken in your mental abilities, then explain how in 15 years from an ordinary person you can become a billionaire. They may offer you a big post in the Kremlin.
    I have an explanation. Unlike your "blablabel". Murder will out.
    In October, Putin was publicly asked why Gazprom was buying the pipes through the intermediary firm of Rotenberg and his brother. Investors are worried about Gazprom's growing costs. According to an analytical article by Interfax, the company's margin is 30%, the newspaper claims.
    Putin replied that if Gazprom has corrupt employees, let the police catch them and put them in jail, but did not directly answer the question about Rotenberg's North European Pipe Project.

    Arkady Rotenberg (fortune $ 1 billion, No. 94 in the Forbes ranking), a childhood friend of President Putin’s sports childhood, has maintained a warm relationship with the head of state to this day. He denies the help of the owner of the Kremlin in his business. Is it not cunning? Judge for yourself. In 2007, he, co-owner of the small St. Petersburg Northern Sea Route bank (129th place in assets, now 43rd), created the Stroygazmontazh and Pipe metal rolling companies. A year later, the first buys five construction subsidiaries of Gazprom, wins one of the largest monopolies in a row after another, and receives some without a tender. The second becomes a major intermediary in the supply of pipes to Gazprom. The amount of orders received by Rotenberg firms from the state and the gas corporation over the past four years is approaching 1 trillion rubles, and the entrepreneur-athlete is entering all new industries: distillery, port, road, energy and trade construction, chemistry ... Already after that an interview, the second in his entire business life, it becomes known that at the request of the mayor of the capital, Dmitry Medvedev's farewell order transferred Rotenberg the construction of Moscow roads for about $ 1 billion without bidding. The businessman did not answer an additional question about how he got it.

Then the lawyer complained about the absence of a national ideology in the country, noting at the same time that now many traitors have accumulated in Latvia who would have welcomed the "alien tanks".]
