Syrian message to the Security Council. The SAR Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent messages to the President of the Security Council and the UN Secretary General They say that on April 8 in Damascus between Sabah Bahrat Square and Sheikh Bander district near the Salem Bukhari school, a suicide bomber blew up a mined car. Dozens of innocent people were killed and injured, great damage was caused to the school building, the Bair mosque, residential buildings and parked cars, reports SANA.
It is noted that the explosion is another link in the chain of terrorist attacks in various areas of Damascus, including mortar shelling of the city, the latter of which caused the death of fifteen students of the faculty of architecture at Damascus University. The shelling of the city, the attacks, attacks on public and private institutions, including schools and hospitals, have become daily actions of terrorists who receive material and logistical support from a number of countries. These countries ignore all norms of human morality and international law, pursuing a policy of double standards in relation to terrorism.
The messages also underline that the decision of the Arab League from 26 of March of the current year on financing and arming terrorists once again violates all the norms of international law and Articles 52 and 53 of the UN Charter. Syria again calls on the UN Security Council to take a clear and decisive position in the fight against terror and to prove the seriousness of its intentions to eliminate it throughout the world.
Intimidation and murder, the messages said, will not break the will of the Syrian people, their desire to fight terrorism and help the Syrian army to fulfill the national-patriotic duty to protect the territorial integrity of the country.
In Jordan, militants are being trained. Yevgeny Poddubny ("Vesti") said that the training of militants in the territory of Jordan (claiming a neutral attitude to the Syrian crisis) are under the training program for special forces. The instructors include the former US military, some of whom worked for Blackwater.
Opponents of the Assad government in Jordan use one of the most modern polygons in the region, where the tactics of fighting in the desert work out and units of the US Army. Over the past few months, according to US officials, a whole battalion of Syrian "oppositionists" has already passed through the royal center for training special forces.
The Royal Special Forces Training Center was built with American money. This building cost ninety million dollars. On the vast territory there are several polygons: residential areas typical for the Middle East, models of embassies, and the private sector. There is a fragment of the airport and a real Airbus.
Pay for "courses" of the United States, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
A local newspaper columnist, military expert Fahed Al Khitan, reports that the goal of the training program is to prepare a new Syrian army, which will replace the current one when the regime falls.
Among the instructors are retired US military, and among them there are also specialists who managed to work in the notorious private military company Blackwater. Employees of this company are involved in numerous fatal scandals, for example, in the shooting of civilians in Baghdad in 2007.
Mutual chemical charges. Ban Ki-moon called on Damascus to show additional flexibility and contribute to sending a group to Syria, which will investigate the possible use of chemical weapons. This was stated by the UN Secretary General in The Hague, where the III Review Conference of the Organization on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is being held, according to "Vesti" with reference to ITAR-TASS.
An advance team of inspectors is in Cyprus and is ready to begin fieldwork within 24 hours after the Syrian government gives permission to visit all the necessary facilities.
For now, the Syrian government and militants remind Vesti, accusing each other of gas attacks. Ban Ki-moon expressed confidence that all serious statements on this subject should be investigated.
However, participants in the negotiation process have not developed a common approach regarding the object of this investigation. Russia insists that statements of official Damascus be studied. And the United Kingdom and France are seeking to add two applications of militants to these materials.
Currently, the Syrian authorities are not allowed into the country a group of UN experts. As explained by the Syrian Foreign Ministry, the reason for this step was the intention of the mission to work throughout the country, which contradicts the requirements of Damascus. The Syrian authorities insist that experts confine themselves to the Aleppo region, where, as Damascus stated, the Syrian opposition last month used chemical weapons against civilians.
The opposition rejected these accusations, hurrying to once again accuse opponents of using prohibited weapons. The rebels have already claimed that government forces deployed chemical weapons in the suburbs of Damascus.
"On Tuesday, at about four in the morning, the Assad armed forces fired three rockets filled with gas over the settlement of Utaiba," the rebels say.
"The end of the unipolar world." The Syrian President said in an interview that the crisis in Syria is the end of that unipolar world dominated by the United States, reports Mixednews.ru with reference to "My Catbird Seat".
In a television interview with the Turkish Ulsal channel, Bashar Asad stressed that the creation of BRICS is a signal to the whole world that the United States can no longer be the only global power, and that other countries should remember the opinions and interests of the BRICS countries.
Assad also stressed that if the crisis leads to the disintegration of Syria or if the country is filled with terrorists, the crisis will inevitably spill over into the borders of neighboring countries.
An American experimental laser will travel to the Persian Gulf. Dion Nissenbaum ("The Wall Street Journal", USA; source of translation - "InoSMI") told that the US Navy is going to deploy experimental laser weapons in the Persian Gulf, where it can be used to prevent attacks by Iranian small landing craft on US warships.
The head of naval operations, Admiral Jonathan Grinert, announced plans to deploy a combat laser aboard an American warship in the Persian Gulf, where whole “flocks” of Iranian assault boats present an annoying problem for the American forces. The system, worth 40 in millions of dollars, will be installed aboard the USS Ponce, the amphibious assault ship that is used for mine detection and clearance, as well as humanitarian operations.
The laser weapon system, a demonstration model assembled by the Naval Systems Command, is now temporarily installed onboard the USS Dewey missile destroyer in San Diego, California.
The developed laser system showed successful results during testing, destroying all 12 targets: UAVs and small vessels. The system uses directional energy to neutralize sensors or burn holes in the surface of an airplane or a ship. Because of the limited area of operation, weapons cannot be used against missiles or jet aircraft, but can be effective in the fight against Iranian speedboats and UAVs created in this country.
Two life sentences and another thirty years for the terrorist Teitel. American-born Jewish Israelite Yaakov (Jack) Teitel, convicted in January of killing two Palestinians and wounding two Israelis, was sentenced on April X by the Jerusalem District Court to two life sentences and another 9 years in prison, reports MIGnews.com.
The court ordered the offender to pay 680 thousands of shekels of compensation: according to 180 thousand in compensation to the families of the victims, and to those for whom he tried to commit an assassination, according to 150 thousand.
After hearing the verdict, Teitel did not express regret about the deed, on the contrary, said that he was “proud” of what he had done.
Teitel was arrested in 2009 year on suspicion of seven terrorist acts. In addition to Palestinians, the 40-year-old native of Florida directed his activities against Jews who were suspected of missionary work and center-left views. An arsenal of firearms was discovered in the backyard of Teitel’s house. His criminal smuggled into Israel from the United States.
In addition to murder and attempted murder, Taygel was accused of inciting and calling for the removal of the Israeli government and the proclamation of the Jewish monarchy.
In the DPRK, everything is ready. In the DPRK, everything is ready for the simultaneous launch of several ballistic missiles with a range from 300 km to more than 3 thousand kilometers. They are deployed on the coast of the Sea of Japan. According to military sources in Tokyo, space reconnaissance recorded two mobile installations with the latest medium-range missiles, Musudan, in the province of Gangwon-do in the east of the country. Presumably they have a range of 3-4 thousands of kilometers and can hit targets all over Japan, as well as on the American Pacific island of Guam, reports today correspondent ITAR-TASS Vasily Golovnin.
Another rocket unit, deployed in the combat position, recorded on the coast of the province of Hamgyon-Pukto in the north-east of North Korea. The analysis of images obtained from space shows that there are either Scud missiles with a range of 300-500 km, or Nodon missiles with a range of approximately 1,3 thousand km.
Scheduled symmetrical response. American and South Korean diplomats decided that if the DPRK attacked, the answer would be symmetrical. The special plan, which was developed by the military of the two countries, provides for the rapid destruction of the main positions of launching missiles and artillery batteries. With the help of such an agreement, the United States and Kazakhstan expect to end the escalation of the conflict on the Korean Peninsula, reports "RT" with reference to the New York Times.
The American edition briefly reveals the essence of the plan: "If North Korea attacks the South Korean island, South Korea will strike back with artillery on enemy positions."
The United States is also ready to assist South Korea in anti-missile weapons. If North Korea launches a missile on South Korea, the Americans are ready to shoot it down with their interceptors. The Pentagon will refuse to act only if the DPRK missile is sent to sea.
"Anonymus" will fight with Kim Jong-un. Anton Urinovskiy ("Voice of Russia") spoke about the new plans for the hacker group "Anonymous". The guys from there said they would start “military” actions against the computer networks of North Korea. One of the hackers' goals is to crack the Kwanmen's closed national network of the DPRK and open Internet access for North Koreans.
Judging by the hacker post on Twitter, an operation called the Korean War will be held on June 25, on the anniversary of the start of the Korean war 1950-1953.
The South Korean newspaper, Hankyoreh, reports that hackers are planning to hack North Korean networks and databases, as well as to establish a “ninja gateway” for Kwangmyeong and launch DPRK residents on the Internet. When asked by the journalists whether Anonymous had agents in North Korea, the representatives of the group responded evasively: “Maybe we can’t say.”
The North Korean media outlets should also be targeted: the Central Telegraph Agency of Korea (TsTAK) and the site of the newspaper Rodon-Simmun. 4 April, hackers have already hacked the DPRK propaganda website Uriminzokkiri and its Twitter and Flickr social media accounts.
Chinese restrictions for tourists. Today, the Chinese authorities have closed the entry to the DPRK from the largest Dandong border crossing point for tourist groups. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to France-Presse.
The frontier guard explained the ban on entry into North Korea for tourists by the position of Pyongyang, which insists that foreigners leave the country. However, business trips to the country are permitted.
Montenegro: Philip Vujanovic won. Victory in the presidential elections in Montenegro, writes Gennady Sysoev (Kommersant), won the current head of state Philip Vujanovic.
Two hours after the polling stations were closed, Vujanovic announced that he won 51,3% of the votes, and his only rival Miodrag Lekić - 48,7%.
“Our victory is absolutely clear - we announced it after checking the voting results at all polling stations,” the president said.
Meanwhile, around the opponent Miodrag Lekic the whole Montenegrin opposition united. Almost simultaneously with the current president, he also announced his victory - albeit with a more modest 50,5: 49,5 result - and even accused the authorities of the putsch.
The outcome of the presidential election in Montenegro will determine its relationship with the West and the Russian Federation. The victory of Vujanovic will not lead to changes in the foreign policy orientation of Podgorica: as before, it will maintain partnership relations with both Western countries and the Russian Federation.
Czech uranium utilized in Russia. According to the resource Newsru.com With references to Interfax and Kommersant, US specialists in cooperation with Russia, the Czech Republic and the IAEA transported 68 kg of highly enriched uranium from the Czech Republic to Russia.
Radioactive materials were taken out of the country at the end of March, but the Czech and American sides released information about it only now: after confirmation from Russia came: Czech uranium was utilized, that is, it was converted into low-enriched for use in nuclear reactors, the head of the State Administration said nuclear safety of the Czech Republic Dana Drabova.
The highly enriched uranium at the nuclear facility near Prague was enough to produce two small nuclear charges. Washington announced the elimination of another portion of hazardous raw materials last Friday.
Ukrainian feces. In Vadim Kolesnichenko, a member of the Ukrainian parliament from the ruling "Party of Regions", bags of feces were thrown at a press conference in Kiev. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with links to Interfax and MFN.
The forum was devoted to the problem of the use of languages in the creation of biometric passports. A woman came into the conference room and threw two packets of excrement in the direction of the speaker. She cried out: “The bandits have already crossed all the borders!” The woman tried to escape, but the guard detained her.
Comrade Kolesnichenko managed to avoid packages. One of them tore behind his back on the wall, and the second fell on the table. The deputy called the woman "sick."
The words “regional” are quoted by the NBN: “See, this is a disabled person. It is very good that in our state there are such jerks. Such sick people in spring should be treated, and the state simply does not have enough money to treat such schizophrenics. We are a democratic country, and we have schizophrenics walking not only at press conferences, but also in parliament. ”
The publication clarifies: the attacker presented herself as Elizabeth, refusing to give her last name. She said that she represents a certain Revolutionary Committee (according to the data of the “New Region”, she is an activist of the “Coalition of participants of the Orange Revolution”). According to the woman, she held a rally against the Party of Regions, which “usurped power” in Ukraine.
Lenta reminds that Kolesnichenko is a co-author of the law, according to which the Russian language in Ukraine received regional status where it is native for at least ten percent of the population (that is, in 13 of the republic’s 27 administrative-territorial units). The Verkhovna Rada adopted this document in July last year, its discussion was accompanied by fights within the walls of parliament, as well as many thousands of protest actions. Viktor Yanukovych signed it in early August 2012.
About the Dead, Potikins and Tits. Maxim Lisovsky ("Voice of Russia"), referring to the Rex news agency, spoke about a new Latvian curiosity: Russian parents cannot get a birth certificate for their son. The fact is that the authorities of the city of Liepaja refuse to call him Miron, instead offering the Latvian form of the name Mironik. But in Russian, this means ... "dead".
Of course, parents do not want their child to be called "dead", and they seek to be issued documents with a Russian name. For a month now, the city authorities have not issued documents to the child, referring to the law “On the state language”, which allows the residents to bring their names in accordance with the grammar of the Latvian language. Human rights activists say that Latvia imposes altered names to its citizens in violation of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, binding on all EU members.
Ruslan Pankratov, deputy of the Riga City Council from the “Accord Center”, told NewsBalt that ridiculous situations arise from the translation of Russian names by the authorities in Latvia. Compare: Mark and Marx, Pyshkin and Pischins, Shishkin and Siskins.
But Russians living in Latvia are forced to use the Latvian version of the name when traveling to Russia.
For the merger of Moldova and Romania will collect signatures. In Moldova and Romania will be a collection of signatures for the unification of the two countries, reports "Lenta.ru" with reference to the REGNUM news agency. It is organized by the Actiunea-2012 movement, which unites a number of unionist organizations.
“To bring Bessarabia home is an initiative coming from below, from the people,” said one of the authors of the idea, Mihai Nikolay, at a forum in Bucharest. “We must necessarily collect these signatures to show our Bessarabian brothers that we never forgot about them.”
The campaign will collect at least 200 thousands of signatures. Then the activists of the movement intend to initiate in Romania a bill to facilitate the issuance of visas for Moldovan citizens and simplify the issuance of Romanian citizenship to them.
Actiunea-2012 intends to seek an amendment to the Romanian constitution in order to prescribe the possibility of uniting the two countries there.
Curved same-sex track. The French Senate yesterday approved the first article of the bill on the legalization of same-sex marriage. After the debate, which lasted over ten hours, 179 senators gave votes in support of this rule. 157 voted against, reports today from Paris correspondent ITAR-TASS Ivan Batyrev.
This part of the document is the most important: it legislatively establishes the right of homosexual couples to enter into legal union. The article was approved without amendments (regarding the text received from the lower house of parliament).
Discussion of the bill should be completed before the end of the week. Senators will have to consider the most controversial part of the document regulating the procedure for the adoption of same-sex couples of children. It is this question that causes serious conservative objections.
Obituaries for the Iron Lady. Under the headline "The Lady that changed Britain and discerned Gorbachev" resource "Inopressa" posted an overview of the topic of the day - obituaries on the death of M. Thatcher.
"Margaret Thatcher was the most significant prime minister in the UK of the peace era, since the end of the 19th century," says The Financial Times. “Free market apologists see it as Joan of Arc, committed to curtailing the role of the state,” but she “was a pragmatic politician who showed little interest in suicidal attempts to destroy the pillars of a welfare state, such as the National Health Service. With it, social spending never fell below 39% of GDP, ”writes Martin Wolf.
The journalist considers her rule as a reformist. Her legacy is the liberalization of currency control, and a significant reduction in income tax rates, and the liberalization of labor markets. The end of the Thatcher period of rule coincided with the collapse of the Soviet Union - and it became a herald of the triumph of the collapse of socialism, the journalist notes.
“While holding the post of British premiere from 1979 to 1990 a year, Margaret Thatcher drew the final line after decades of cozy downfall. She had the talent to question what was not discussed, and to find non-standard answers. Some of them were brilliant, some were catastrophic, and most often they were both, depending on the observer’s point of view, ”writes Dominic Johnson, author of the obituary in Tageszeitung.
Johnson notes, among other things: “Without Thatcher’s preparatory work, the modernization of Great Britain that has taken place over the past two decades could not have taken place. She destroyed the foundations of the old; It did not create a basis for a new one. ”
“The genius of thatcherism will stand the test of time,” historian Andrew Roberts, one of the trustees of the Margaret Thatcher Archive Trust (he was appointed by Thatcher herself), makes the statement on the pages of The Wall Street Journal.
"It would not be an exaggeration to say that Thatcher saved Great Britain from bankruptcy and returned her greatness, and also won the war and together with Reagan helped bury the Soviet communist regime," the author writes pathetically.
As for the EU, all its warnings about the dangers of an economic and monetary union have come true. The British should thank Thatcher for exclaiming in Parliament: “No! Not! No! ”When the idea of switching from pound sterling to euro was discussed.
Fortunately for the world, thatcherism will never become obsolete, the author concludes.
M. Thatcher was never afraid to get involved in a fight - even with feminists, even with Irish Republicans, even with Argentines, but her strongest legacy is peace, writes “The Chicago Tribune”.
Thatcher and Reagan realized: Gorbachev's rise brings fundamental changes. Both Thatcher and Reagan hated the communist ideology and called for the strengthening of the nuclear deterrent forces — a counterbalance to the weapons of the USSR. Thatcher, like Reagan, took the risk. “Due to the fact that this woman with convictions took upon herself the burden of leadership at the decisive hour, we are living in a safer world today,” the newspaper writes.
After all, Thatcher saw that Gorbachev was not an autocrat, and said that the West could deal with him. "In tandem with Reagan, she helped end the Soviet era without violence," the article says. Although the arms race was unbearable for the USSR and “capitulation in the Cold War” was the only way история he will remember, the author writes, that Thatcher helped "to crush the threat that communism carried for half a century to Western liberalism."
British holiday. As transmits Interfax, residents of several cities in the UK, including London, celebrated the death of the Iron Lady. The rally in Bristol even ended with clashes with the police: there six police officers were injured during the dispersal of two hundred demonstrators celebrating the death of the “iron lady”. The newspaper “Daily Telegraph” told about it.
A similar action also took place in the southern suburb of London - Brixton, where about two hundred people gathered on Tuesday night. At first, the promotion was announced on Facebook. The demonstrators changed the announcement of the upcoming premiere on the building of the cinema "Ritzy", laying out the letters: "Margaret Thatcher is dead, ha ha ha." The participants chanted: “Maggie, Maggie, Maggie, dead, dead, dead.”
Then the police detained two participants who are suspected of burglary of one of the shops, said the Guardian.
In the center of London on Trafalgar Square, everything went smoothly: people simply noted Thatcher’s death by drinking champagne.
In Scottish Glasgow, celebrate the death of the Iron Lady came more than 300 people. They gathered in the town square of St. George, where they sang, danced and played musical instruments.
In Facebook, the campaign to promote the first place in the music charts of the song “Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead ”(“ Din-Don! The Witch is Dead ”).
As the Mixednews.ru With reference to TNT Magazine, former Mayor of London Ken Livingstone says: “It was she (M. Thatcher) who created the current housing crisis, because of her there was a banking crisis, she created a crisis of benefits. In fact, every serious problem we face today is a legacy of the fact that it was fundamentally wrong. ”
The Secretary-General of the National Union of Miners, Chris Kitchen, said: “We have long been waiting for news of the demise of Baroness Thatcher, and I cannot say that I am very sorry. I will not shed tears on it. ”
The Guardian’s editorial article about Thatcher’s death concludes: “Her legacy was the division of society, personal egoism, and the cult of greed.”
In a column in The Daily Beast, singer Morrissey remarked: "As a fact of record, one can argue that Thatcher was a terror without a single atom of humanity."
In the Netherlands, accused the Russian spy. Former employee of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands Raymond Puterai was charged with espionage in favor of Russia. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to Interfax.
The Netherlands Prosecutor’s Office demanded that the defendant be sentenced to 15 years in prison for selling secret information of a political and military nature. According to Interfax, which the helper calls Raymond P., the Dutchman is accused of collaborating with a German married couple by the name of Anshlag.
But the April edition of the “South China Morning Post” 7 reported that the former Dutch foreign ministry official Raymond Puterai should be brought to trial on charges of spying for Russia. According to SCMP, Puterai was recruited by the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service during his work in Hong Kong from 2004 to 2008.
Witnesses have shown that in 2005 and 2006, the Dutchman received mysterious money transfers every month. These payments ceased in 2007, when Puterai was at the center of a scandal around his adopted Korean daughter. Because of problems with adoption, Puterai was recalled from Hong Kong to the Netherlands, where he continued to work in the Foreign Ministry. After that, he began to receive money again, and the active phase of cooperation with the Full House began.
In addition to spouses Heydrun and Andreas Anshlag, the investigation links Puteraya with the Russian spy Anna Chapman, who in 2010, together with other failed agents, was deported from the United States.
"Ribbon" recalls that Puterai was arrested in Germany last June. The media reported that an employee of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs allegedly handed over a full 450 secret document to the couple with information about the political and military strategy of the EU and NATO, including the plans of the alliance towards the Russian Federation.
“Corruption in the FSB knows no bounds.” Axel Gilden and Alla Shevelkina ("L'Express"source of translation - "Inopressa") collected reviews (a selection of interviews) of former KGB officers about Vladimir Putin.
Valery Shiryaev, a former KGB officer, and now deputy director of Novaya Gazeta, believes that Putin’s KGB work in Dresden did not imply any risk, and he must have died from boredom.
“Today, the know-how of Russian espionage has been lost. Remember the hostage-taking in the Theater Center on Dubrovka by the dozens of Chechen militants: the special services put all the terrorists to sleep with hypnotic gas, and then shot them. In Soviet times, we would take them alive. Putin considered this operation quite successful, ”he said. - The art of compromising remains the only sphere of superiority of the FSB. It consists in filming oppositionists in a compromising situation and posting video on the Internet. Perhaps it is useful to humiliate the opposition, but no more. This demonstrates how low the level of today's FSB is. ”
Former KGB general Alexei Kondaurov is convinced: "Vladimir Putin destroyed the values of the KGB." According to him, Putin is a bad leader not only for Russia, but also for the special services. Kondaurov stressed: “Putin is constantly criticizing the abuses of 1990's, but he himself collaborated with all the oligarchs whom he accuses of the collapse of the Russian state. First of all, he destroyed the values of the KGB. After the "turn" at the XX Congress of the CPSU, the special services became under the control of political power in order to avoid drifts of the Stalin era. In the regions, the local secretaries of the Communist Party had power over the special services. For example, it was impossible to establish surveillance of someone without the approval of the prosecutor. Today, those close to the authorities establish surveillance by buying off the FSB investigators, who often operate outside of any framework of the law. FSB is a satellite descending from its orbit. ”
“Putin took advantage of the hostage-taking in Beslan to strengthen his power,” said Anatoly Yermolin, a veteran of the Vympel special purpose group, lieutenant colonel of the KGB. It was he who once published on the Internet an open letter to Putin: "Report to the naked king." Soon after, he was expelled from United Russia, and the Kremlin ordered the media to boycott him. “During the anti-Putin demonstrations of the 2011-2012 winter, my former colleagues complained that the situation in the country was difficult, but, apart from Putin, nobody is there. Then I took the floor: “Listen, 40 colonels gathered here. Are those present less educated or clever than he? ”The answer was silence,” said Yermolin.
Lawyer Yury Gervis, a former KGB investigator, said: “Before, the KGB was a very closed organization with strict selection criteria. There was no corruption. Dissident Andrei Sakharov once said that the KGB is the least corrupt structure in the USSR, and he was right, said Gervis in an interview. - Vladimir Putin failed to save it. Corruption in the FSB knows no bounds. Admission to work is carried out on a pull, by acquaintance, by personal calculation. Agents are engaged in economic activities: provide a "roof" for business leaders. So do not build the state. "
Says and shows "Femen". The visit of the President of Russia to Germany and the Netherlands on April 8 was interrupted by activists of the movement “Femen”. The girls undressed in the presence of Putin and Merkel when they looked at the Volkswagen booth at the Hannover exhibition. Activists shouted obscene slogans in English. President of Russia, writes "Lenta.ru", responded to the performance positively, showing a thumbs up in approval.
One of the representatives of feminists, Alexandra Shevchenko, shared her impressions of the action against the President of the Russian Federation. An interview with an activist was published by the Belarusian “ERB”. According to Shevchenko, she and her colleagues managed to get to the exhibition as visitors. “I will not give the whole scheme and the technical side of the case. The most important thing to get there is the absence of fear of Putin, of his armed guards ", - quotes her words "Lenta.ru". Shevchenko noted that she saw how the face of the Russian leader was changing, when she, undressing and shouting, “ran at him”.
“From the calm, with a smile, to what you see in the pictures is a silly one, with a wandering smile,” she explained. The reporter’s assumption that Putin was probably interested in what was happening was rejected by the activist, expressing the opinion that the president at that moment was interested in the question “where is the hole in his defense?”
A spokeswoman for the organization also said that the Russian president took the action "as a humiliation" and demanded that the German authorities punish its participants. According to her, the police allegedly admitted that they had no reason to initiate a criminal case against the activists, but this (the initiation of the case) was nevertheless done due to pressure from the Kremlin.
The police detained and interrogated five members of the movement, reminds "Lenta". They got a case under the article "Insulting government agencies and representatives of foreign governments." Later, the press secretary of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, called the rally hooliganism, but clarified that he did not call for punishing the girls. Putin himself, commenting on the incident, admitted that he knew about the upcoming action, but she was “not very impressed”.
“I didn't have breakfast in the morning. If they, as they say, showed me sausage or lard, it would have pleased me, but the charms that they demonstrate are not very good, ”the Russian leader RIA said.News».
Massacre in Texas. A massacre at a college in Cypres, Texas, that injured an 15 man, arranged for an 21-year-old student at the school. This was announced by Sheriff Adrian Garcia, reports correspondent ITAR-TASS Andrey Bekrenev.

The sequestration hit the US defenses. The White House will send a draft budget for 2014 fiscal year to Congress today, which begins in the United States on October 1. The office of the head of state is forced to take into account the realities of the sequestration - the forced reduction of government spending by 85 billion dollars, according to "Vesti" with reference to ITAR-TASS.
The draft military budget for the 2014 year is estimated at 526,6 billion. The media leaked information that the Pentagon will request for missile defense programs 9,16 billion. This is about 550 million less than this year. In addition, as experts point out, costs can be further reduced if the sequestration remains in effect in the new fiscal year.
In the current fiscal year, the Pentagon should cut its programs by $ 41 billion. Sequestration will hit, among other things, an elite unit aviation US Navy Blue Angels, which in the coming months will not participate in holiday demonstration flights and international air shows.
There is no money for a trial of a terrorist. The trial of one of the leaders of al-Qaida, Suleiman Abu Gated, the son-in-law of the late bin Laden, will begin in New York on January 7, 2014. This decision was made by federal judge Lewis Kaplan, reported "Vesti" with reference to ITAR-TASS.
This judge had planned to start the trial earlier this September, but Abu Gate’s lawyers said they would not have time to prepare for this deadline because of the sequestration of the federal budget.
“By the beginning of autumn, all state-appointed lawyers in federal affairs will have to go on vacation for five and a half weeks. Therefore, it will be very difficult for the defense to prepare for September, ”said Martin Cohen, one of the lawyers for the defendant.
The judge called it shocking that because of the forced budget cuts, the trial of Al-Qaida’s leader will be delayed. According to the investigation, 47-year-old Abu Gate was directly involved in the organization of the September 11 2001 attacks.
