Geopolitical mosaic: the United States began to joke about the DPRK missile program, and the Russian president was in the Finnish criminal register



Syria warns. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Emigration Affairs of the SAR sent two messages: to the President of the Security Council and to the Secretary-General of the United Nations. The text states that the April 7 sites linked to Al-Qaida published sound recordings of Ayman al-Zawahiri’s speeches. The terrorist calls militants in Syria to create an Islamist state, which will become the cornerstone in restoring the Caliphate. Also in the speech was a call to unite for the struggle in the name of Allah and the introduction of Sharia, reports SANA.

The SAR Ministry of Foreign Affairs noted that 10 of April websites related to terrorist organizations published another sound recording - statements by the leader of Dzhebhat an-Nusra Abu Muhammad Al-Giuliani that members of this organization would obey Sheikh Jihad al-Zawahiri.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed that these statements confirm the warnings of the Syrian government, which were repeatedly expressed in the messages sent to the SC chairman and the UN Secretary General, about the links of terrorist groups with Al Qaeda and about the danger of crimes committed in Syria, and that Dzhebhat an-Nusra dominates these armed groups committed to dark ideas and fulfilling extremist fatwas.

Also, the ministry said that, despite documents confirming the crimes of these organizations, sent by the Syrian government to the UN, some states prevented the Security Council from condemning many of the crimes for which Dzhebhat al-Nusra claimed responsibility. This has become an incentive for terrorists to continue their criminal actions against Syrian citizens.

Therefore, the SAR reiterates the danger of the international community ignoring the crimes of terrorists linked to Al-Qaida and their allies, the Islamist brigades and the so-called Free Army, as well as the silence on the support of terrorists from Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Libya and others.

The ministry indicated that Syria is requesting that Djabhat al-Nusru be included in the list of terrorist organizations associated with Al-Qaida, in accordance with UN Security Council resolutions No. 1267 of 1999 of the year and No. 1989 of 2011 of the year. The statement says that the UAR government wants to respond to its request promptly, and that the UN Security Council begin to play its role in preserving peace and security in the international arena, putting pressure on countries supporting terrorism.

News from the Golan Heights. Maria Efimova (Kommersant) said that the Syrian government troops left their positions in the Golan Heights area on the border with Israel: they were redeployed to the Damascus area and other hot spots. Experts fear that this redeployment promises problems to Tel Aviv.

Until recently, four elite units of the Syrian government forces were located on the heights. They guarded the ceasefire line marked 40 years ago. Over the past few weeks, almost half of the military - about 20 thousand people - were transferred to other parts of the intra Syrian front. The fighting takes place in the suburbs of Damascus, and Bashar Asad is forced to bare the border with Israel.

Several radical groups, in particular, Dzhebhat al-Nusra and Palestinian extremists from the Yarmuk Martyrs Brigade, seized several checkpoints and one village in the south of the Golan Heights.

“In this difficult situation, the main thing is to prevent the Golan Heights from turning into a base for terrorist attacks against Israel. The smallest of evils is the replacement of Syrian troops by detachments of the Free Syrian Army (SSA), which adhere to a moderate ideology, ”Yakov Kedmi, an Israeli security expert, told Kommersant.

According to reports, in the territory of Jordan, a training camp for opposition fighters is already operating under the patronage of the United States, which will later be transferred to the Golan Heights in order to create a buffer zone there. (Details about him told в fresh article on the "Military Review").

American military aid to Israel. Barack Obama submitted a draft budget for 2014 for Congress. According to the project, Israel will receive military aid for 3,4 billion dollars, including 220 million dollars for the development and production of the "Iron Dome". If Obama’s proposal is approved by Congress, the current level of US military aid to Israel will remain almost unchanged, reports MIGnews.com.

In the budget package - 3,1 billion of ordinary military assistance to Israel, plus 220 million dollars of funding for the Iron Dome. The provision of 96 millions of dollars for the “Prash David” and “Arrow” missile defense programs is also envisaged.

New sanctions against Iran. Yesterday, the US administration introduced new sanctions against Iran. The measures affected the Iranian oil trading company Naftiran Intertrade, located in Switzerland, which is under the "management or control of the National Iranian oil company, which was blacklisted even earlier." The Iranian businessman Babak Morteza Zanjani, who “provided both concerns with financial and technical support,” was also personally included in the list.

Sanctions imposed on the Malaysian First Islamic Investment Bank, reported "Vesti" with reference to ITAR-TASS.

“As international sanctions strengthened, Iran began to resort to money laundering technologies,” said Deputy Finance Minister David Cohen. According to him, Tehran uses fictitious names to transport oil and transfer money.

The measures introduced imply the freezing of all assets belonging to the listed persons and companies that may be under American jurisdiction. US citizens are prohibited from entering into any business relationship with them.

India will continue to buy oil from Iran. India will not stop buying oil in Iran, which is subject to US and EU sanctions, said Indian Deputy Foreign Minister Ranjan Mathai, reports RIA News". “We will continue to purchase oil in Iran,” IANS quoted Mathai as saying.

Earlier, Indian media reported that the country may stop importing oil from Iran in April.

Today, India is the second largest buyer of Iranian oil. Last week, the Indian government decided to discontinue the Irano Hind Shipping Company, which imports oil from Iran. Due to the sanctions, the company faced difficulties in insuring vessels.

India and a number of other countries are currently temporarily excluded by the United States from the sanctions list, reminds RIA Novosti.

Torture and murder. During the January “revolution” of 2011, the Egyptian military abducted, killed and tortured people. This is stated in the unpublished report of the commission established by Mohammed Mursi. With excerpts from this document managed to get acquainted with the journalists of the newspaper "The Guardian", reports "RT". According to the newspaper, in the report submitted to Mursi, it is recommended to conduct an investigation regarding the highest army officials.

Over the 18 days of unrest, the report says, more than a thousand people went missing. The authors of the document claim that from the first day of mass demonstrations on the Cairo square of Tahrir, the military abducted protesters. The bodies of many of those killed later appeared in morgues with signs of violence or disappeared without a trace. According to the report, people protesting at Tahrir were tortured by soldiers right in the nearby state museum.

Many Egyptians went missing after being detained at a checkpoint.

“The Guardian” journalists believe that the commission’s conclusions will put the president in an ambiguous position, who, after winning the election, was handed over to the reins of government by the Supreme Council of the armed forces who temporarily headed the country.

Weapon for somalia. The US government can begin supplying arms to Somalia. Barack Obama signed a document according to which the State Department can assist the army of Mogadishu. Presidential decree, reports "RT", gives the State Department the right to consider the issue of the start of arms supplies to the war-torn country.

“The United States remains a partner of the Somali government in the long term. We will help the Somali army become professional, ”said Caitlin Hayden, a spokeswoman for the US National Security Council.

The decision of the President of the United States followed the approval of the UN Security Council. In March, the Council unanimously voted in favor of a resolution that allows selling small arms to the Somali government.

The Somali Government is also supported by its partners in the African Union, who have established an armed mission to counter the warring Islamic radicals. In recent years, the opponents of the Islamists were able to achieve significant success. They pushed Al-Shabab away from the capital.

Playing with rockets. The DPRK authorities are constantly changing the locations of ballistic missiles ready for launch, writes Interfax.

The fact that the launch of ballistic missiles from the coast of the DPRK can occur at any moment, reports the South Korean news agency "Renhap", citing sources in local intelligence. The interlocutor of the agency notes that in Pyongyang now, it seems, they are trying to complicate observation of launches for the South Korean and American military as much as possible. To do this, self-propelled launchers with missiles "Musudan" constantly redeploy, then removing from shelters, then sending back. Sources "Ronhap" believe that in this way the North Korean military hopes to additionally "load" the reconnaissance of the enemy so that it misses the moment of launch.

Opponents of this troubled point of view indicate that the movement of launchers may indicate that the North Korean missiles have not yet been refueled. After all, the engines of the Musudan rocket run on liquid fuel, and their movement in fully equipped condition is dangerous. If they are filled, then the DPRK has about a week left to run them, since liquid fuel cannot be in tanks for a long time. The most likely date is already known - it is 15 of April, which accounts for the birthday of the founder of the DPRK, Kim Il Sung, the grandfather of the current ruler.

A successful launch of Musudanov could theoretically be dangerous for the United States: this rocket with a maximum range of 4000 km can reach Guam Island, where the key Pacific bases of the Navy and the US Air Force are located. To monitor the launches, the Americans brought to the shores of the Korean Peninsula floating radar SBX-1, capable of tracking the trajectory of ballistic missiles at a distance of 2 thousands of kilometers. Also yesterday, the level of danger on the island of Guam was increased. Now there is a "yellow" (medium) level of threat.

The Pentagon doubts the nuclear missile power of North Korea. The US Department of Defense believes that the DPRK is unable to launch a missile with a nuclear warhead. This was said by the official representative of the military department George Little, they report "Vesti" with reference to ITAR-TASS

Mr. Little assured that it was unlikely that the DPRK had fully tested, developed or demonstrated nuclear capabilities of this kind. According to him, "The United States is closely following the nuclear program of Pyongyang and urges it to fulfill its international obligations."

Not serious about serious. Today "Vesti"Referring to Interfax, they placed among other world news information that the launch of the North Korean Musudan ballistic missile was postponed. The reason for the postponement was the difficulty with Windows 8. This was written by the American magazine "New Yorker", referring to the messages of the TsTAK.

According to American intelligence analysts, until recently, North Korean missile software was based on Windows 95.

Now experts are trying to solve the problem. According to the magazine “New Yorker”, the DPRK leader Kim Jong-un is preparing to declare war on Microsoft Corporation.

As the RIA News", the popular American magazine "New Yorker" posted parody note. The material is part of the author's heading Andy Borovits, a famous American humorist.

In his column, Borowitz, referring to the Korea Central Telegraph Agency, actually wrote that Pyongyang had postponed the launch of a ballistic missile for an indefinite period due to the failure of Windows 8.

“Military analysts believe that this statement provides a rare opportunity to see from within the problems of the North Korean rocket program, which last year used Windows 95,” the humorist jokes, imitating the vocabulary of numerous reports on this topic. A source in the power structures of the DPRK allegedly informed Mr. Borovits that Kim Jong-un was furious because of a software malfunction and is now considering the possibility of declaring the war "Microsoft".

The reason for writing the parody news was another round of tension on the Korean Peninsula.

Propaganda with shepherd dogs. Pyongyang presented the world with a new pattern of political propaganda. The state television of the DPRK showed footage of soldiers dragging service dogs, using an effigy of Kim Kwan Jin, the Minister of War of South Korea, to train them. The video shows how ferocious dogs tear apart the figure of the “enemy minister”, and the soldiers use his portrait as a target at a shooting range, reports "RT" with reference to the newspaper "New York Daily News".

One soldier says to the camera: “On the Korean Peninsula, no one argues whether there will be a war. Everyone thinks when it will be - today or tomorrow. All this is reminiscent of the situation on the eve of the big bang, when every second counts. We are ready to speak as soon as we receive the order. ”

Patriots in Okinawa. Two Patriot anti-missile complexes of the latest PAC-3 modification, consisting of four installations, will be permanently deployed in Okinawa, Japan’s southern prefecture. As Itunori Onodera, the country's defense minister, said today, this will happen in April, reports from Tokyo correspondent ITAR-TASS Igor Belyaev.

The Patriots will be moved from the city of Hamamatsu (central Japan) to the administrative center of Okinawa, the city of Naha, and to the city of Nanjo.

The decision to install anti-missile systems in Okinawa prefecture on an ongoing basis is associated with the worsening situation on the Korean Peninsula and the possible missile threat from Pyongyang.

Europe in the crescents. 2013 year, analysts believe, will be a record for the number of mosques being built in Europe. "Vesti" They write that mosques are being actively built in Greece, Spain, and Germany. And in Ireland, one of the largest Muslim temples is being built - for 64 million euros. Megamets will soon be built in Belgian Liege: with a library, cafes and shops.

Giant cult complex worth 40 million euros will soon replenish Munich.

Even the Greek bankrupt government is going to spend a million euros to build the first official mosque in Athens.

One after another, minarets grow in Luxembourg, Switzerland, and Spain.

About the Belgian Islamist mercenaries. The Belgian authorities have attended to the problem of the departure of young Europeans to the war in Syria. Their total number has already exceeded 200 people, among them there are minors. It is also known that before the 20 of the citizens of Belgium died in this war, Newsru.com with links to ITAR-TASS, the Belgian TV channel RTBF and other sources.

However, the meeting devoted to this problem by the Belgian burgomasters of 11 in April ended in vain. “We came to the conclusion that in this situation it is necessary to avoid any simplifications. The reasons for the radicalization of our youth are not always associated with the problems of poverty or discrimination, ”said Burt De Wevers, the mayor of Antwerp, following the meeting. “Alas, for the radical youth today to get to Syria is much easier than to Afghanistan. You only need to buy a plane ticket to Turkey, ”he said.

Earlier, the Belgian counterintelligence "Surte" said it considers the Belgian citizens who are returning home after participating in hostilities, a "potential terrorist threat" to the security of the country.

The RTBF channel showed a story on the subject of mercenaries in Syria, where he brought a telephone interview taken from a former officer of the French army. A certain “Kalen” represents a “private structure” and regularly happens in Syria.

According to Cullen, European volunteers arriving in Syria are mostly young people who “never had arms in their hands”. They actually receive combat training right in the course of hostilities, "acting as cannon fodder."

European volunteers in Syria are divided into two types: 1) young people of extremely radical Islamist views; 2) idealists who come to fight either for freedom, or for democracy, trying to become heroes. Most of them quickly lose their desire to participate in the war, but returning from Syria is much more difficult than getting there. Calen reported:

“They come through Turkey. In the Turkish village near the border with Syria they are met by people who provide the border crossing. In Syria, documents, money, mobile phones are taken away from them — that is, everything that can allow them to try to leave the country. ”


This is what propaganda does to people, let us add on our own. That's what she pushes them. Western propaganda.

Popular song. After the death of Margaret Thatcher, the song “Ding-dong, the witch is dead” from the movie “The Wizard of Oz” is becoming more popular in the United Kingdom every day. Yesterday, this composition won first place in the British hit parade of the online store "iTunes", reported from London ITAR-TASS correspondents Alan Badov and Grigory Zimenkov.

But “BBC Radio 4” is going to exclude the song from its chart, compiled every Sunday - even if the song is among the most popular tracks of the week among 40.

In the online store "Amazon" song continues to occupy a leading position among the most popular singles.

Detractors of the former British prime minister buy a witch song file on the Internet on purpose: to demonstrate a negative attitude to the political legacy of the Iron Lady.

Valentina Matvienko: "I bow to this woman." Valentina Matvienko found a lot in common in the biography of Margaret Thatcher and her fate. About this the chairman of the Federation Council of Russia told reporters yesterday in St. Petersburg, reports correspondent ITAR-TASS Ekaterina Kalinina.

V. Matvienko admitted: “I bow to this woman. I watched her biography - we have a lot in common with her: we ended up with the same institutions (chemical and pharmaceutical), we both were very active in social activities, started in the youth political movement, then worked in parliaments, the government and so on. For me, she has always been a model for a woman politician. ”

The chairwoman of the upper house of the Russian parliament noted: “I had the good fortune to be personally acquainted with Margaret Thatcher - I met her, and she makes the strongest impression.” V. Matvienko believes that M. Thatcher was "a very intelligent, purposeful person - very strong-willed, able to achieve his goals."

Valentina Matvienko is sure that Thatcher will enter history as an outstanding politician of the twentieth century, who had a great influence on the development of his country, the policies of Europe and world politics in general.

Europe on the threshold of EuroHeddon. The EU has calculated the next country, which will seek anti-crisis assistance after Cyprus. This country is Slovenia.

The Eurogroup has no doubt that a crisis in Slovenia is inevitable. The situation in the country will be analyzed today at the Eurogroup meeting in Dublin. According to "But" With reference to Reuters, Slovenia, “taking a turn for Cyprus” to receive financial assistance, should seriously reconsider the amount that will result in a solution to problems in the banking sector.

However, as stated by OECD Deputy Secretary General Yves Leterme, immediate Slovenian financial assistance is not required. According to him, until now “the government of this country coped with economic difficulties without any particular problems.”

However, in the economic study presented by the organization, the prospects for economic development are estimated as "one of the worst in the OECD."

The report states that Slovenia may face a severe crisis in the banking sector. According to OECD analysts, Ljubljana should recapitalize troubled banks: state-owned banks (Nova Ljubljanska Banka and Nova Kreditna Banka Maribor) should be privatized, and uncompetitive ones should be liquidated.

The OECD believes that losses should be assumed by holders of subordinated loans and other complex derivatives.

In the case of the inability of the authorities to cope with the situation on their own, the country will have to rescue according to the scenario tested in Cyprus. Let us recall the words of the Eurogroup chairman of the Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Deyselblum: he said that Cyprus in the future could become a model for solving similar problems in other banks.

As recalled by “However,” Slovenia is the only country that, having joined the EU, refused to privatize even a part of the banking sector. According to the assessment conducted in 2012, local banks are burdened with “bad” loans in the amount of 7 billion euros.

The Germans are heavily indebted to the Greeks. Athens prepared a report on the damage caused by the Nazis to Greece during World War II. The possibility is being discussed of suing Germany for compensation in the amount of 162 billion euros, reports "RT".

Officials expect to return 108 billion spent by the Greeks on the restoration of infrastructure, and 54 billion more, seized by the Third Reich from the Greek Central Bank during the war. If we take into account the valuable cultural and historical objects exported to Germany, the amount of the claim may increase significantly.

According to the research of the Greek scientist and writer Demosthenes Kukunas, Germany during the occupation of Greece exported valuables to 100 billion euros, not including military reparations and indemnities. According to the calculations of the researcher, the losses of the Greek economy from the German occupation are estimated at 510,033 billion euros.

News about the Italian far right. In the correspondent reportage "RT" Irina Galushko is told that nationalist ideas are becoming more and more popular in Italy, and the country is increasingly talking about the revival of fascism.

The Casa Pound movement denies its predecessors from the Second World War. Simone di Stefano, vice-president of the organization, explains that fascism is, first of all, the system of governance of the country and its economy. The current far right is not responsible for "what happened 70 years ago." Simone di Stefano says that it is not for him to "judge" what "happened in those days": he "wasn’t in the world then."

Proponents of Casa Pound talk about economics, corruption, and unemployment. Simone di Stefano says that the members of the organization come out for the sovereignty of Italy, against pan-European tendencies and against the “dictatorship of the European Union”. He believes that the production of Italian goods does not need to be transferred to other countries.

History professor Carlo Casula recalls that such movements are gaining momentum during crises, and indicates that the Casa Pound party is not very popular: in the elections, it received less than 1% of votes.

French rabbi plagiarist caught. French Chief Rabbi Gilles Bernheim yesterday announced his resignation - due to a scandal involving plagiarism, writes "Lenta.ru" with reference to Ha'aretz.

He was forced to leave his post, recognizing, under pressure, evidence that he “borrowed” from other authors significant pieces of text for his book “Forty meditations in Jewish practice”, as well as for a number of other works. Barnheim stated that he “made a mistake in making borrowings that others may call plagiarism,” and also said that he regretted what he had done and acknowledged the moral inferiority of his act.

The retired rabbi at the same time admitted that his degree in philosophy, which he allegedly received 37 years ago, is in fact a fake.

French bloggers exposed Bernheim, who found in the texts of Rabbi a lot of coincidences with the works of other authors. Initially, Bernheim refused to resign, accusing the student who wrote part of the book for him. In addition, the rabbi claimed that it was just the other authors who wrote their books under the influence of his lectures given in 1980's. Bernheim insisted that no matter what, he was able to perform the functions of the chief rabbi, but was still forced to resign under pressure from the public and colleagues. The Council of Rabbis of France has already accepted his resignation.

Comrade Putin was in the Finnish criminal register. The name of the Russian president was included in Finland in a certain secret criminal register, which theoretically gives grounds for arrest. According to foreign media reports, the president of Russia was placed on the Finnish “black list” for contacts with members of the Night Wolves biker club, which was called the “organized criminal group.”

The Finnish police apologized for this mistake, and the head of the Finnish Ministry of the Interior expressed the hope that such a misunderstanding would not harm relations with Russia.

Vladimir Putin to the inclusion in the Finnish black list, prohibiting him from entering this European country, reacted with irony, pass "Vesti" with reference to Interfax.

Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said: “I don’t think this requires some kind of response. As far as we know, the Finnish side itself discovered this mistake in time. An appropriate check is being conducted there, so I do not think that any additional actions are required here. The Finns themselves have already responded and apologized. ”

Document status: urgent. The Latvian Saeima voted to tighten the ban on the use of Soviet and Nazi symbols. The relevant bill, as transmits "Lenta.ru" With reference to «Mixnews», yesterday was adopted in the first reading.

As noted by DELFI, the document developed by one of the ruling parties has been granted the status of urgent. This means that it will be considered in two and not in three readings. The portal does not exclude that the bill may enter into force before Victory Day.

The current legislation of Latvia prohibits the use of symbols of the USSR and Nazi Germany at public events (for example, meetings). However, there are exceptions: the ban does not apply to entertainment, holiday, memorable and sports events. For example, the celebration of Victory Day with Soviet flags is allowed.

Now, the ruling party "Unity" (it is part of the ruling parliamentary coalition with the nationalists) proposes to impose a general ban on the use of Soviet and Nazi symbols in public events.

The author of the document is Andrei Yudin, a deputy of Unity. The draft law he drafted, according to the deputy himself, is directed against spreading radical views and a split in society.

In Estonia, the ranks of the Knights Templar thinned. The commander of the Estonian army, Major General Riho Terras decided to resign as head of the local order of the Templars. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to Postimees.

Speaking yesterday to the officers, Mr. Terras said that he had already left the governing bodies of the relevant organization (Ordo Supremus Militaris Templi Hierosolymitani).

The fact that the commander of the Estonian army part-time directs the local union of the Templars, it became known in March. As it turned out, the order's Tallinn box also includes the head of the army recruitment center, Lauri Kurvits, the former military attaché in Russia, Lauri Einre, the former intelligence services coordinator Eerik-Nijles Cross and some other military and civilians.

The head of the Estonian government, Andrus Ansip, commenting on the news of the presence of the army commander among the members of the order, said he did not see anything wrong with that. He noted that he himself is in the Rotary Club.

Gazprom is promoting the Russian language. Gazprom has become a participant in the program to support the Russian language in Ukraine, Russian Ambassador to Kiev Mikhail Zurabov said in an interview with Pravda.ru, "Lenta.ru".

“A number of Ukrainian schools are now being equipped at the expense of Russian sponsors with the means to access remote sources of information. I am aware that colleagues from Gazprom now intend to more actively involve Ukraine in the program of distance learning, including in the Russian language, ”he said.

Zurabov noted that the company considers the support of the Russian language in the CIS countries "one of the most important humanitarian tasks." He also shared plans to open two Russian schools and a kindergarten in Sevastopol. According to him, this may happen at the end of the current - early next year.

“Stone Dreams” came out in Armenian. The novel "Stone Dreams", written by Azerbaijani writer Akram Aylisli, was published in Armenian. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to the APA. The book was published by Nork.

The author of the novel, according to Haqqin.az, said that he did not give permission to translate. The writer also stressed that in his novel there is nothing offensive to the Azerbaijani people.

According to ANSPRESS, a representative of the ruling party of Azerbaijan (“New Azerbaijan”), MP Mubariz Gurbanli expressed his dissatisfaction with the publication: “The notorious novel ... has already been published in Armenian. Of course, the enemy does not sleep, using all means for carrying out ideological sabotage and black PR campaign against Azerbaijan. ”

"Ribbon" reminds that Aylisli's novel "Stone Dreams" was published at the end of 2012 of the year (it appeared in Russian, the work was not published in Azerbaijani). The action of the work develops in Baku in the last years of the USSR, the heroes recall the old life in the village of Aylis, where Armenians and Azerbaijanis lived. The criticism of the author was caused by what he wrote about the murders of Armenians committed in Baku, and in a negative light depicted those who committed the killings of "erazov" (Azerbaijani refugees from Armenia). Shortly after the publication of the novel in Azerbaijan began the persecution of the writer. He was accused of betraying his people and serving the Armenians. The rally participants burned Aylisli’s books, and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev deprived the author of “Stone Dreams” the title of People’s Writer and presidential pension.

Song in memory of Chavez. A song dedicated to the late Venezuelan president was written in Cuba. She performed at the opening of a new elementary school in Havana, transmit "Vesti".

Fidel Castro thanked the authors of the song, called for more often to perform and listen to this piece of music. “This song is written on the occasion of the death of Chavez, it is called“ The Return of a Friend, ”said comrade Castro. - A beautiful song. Both words and music are beautiful. Million thanks to its authors! ”

Apologies for the fly. The President of Uruguay, José Mujica, made a public apology on Wednesday for her remarks about Argentina’s head, Cristina Fernandez, and her late spouse Nestor Kirchner, who also held the post of head of the South American country, reports correspondent RIA "News" Dmitry Znamensky.

“I have to offer sincere apologies to those whom I could hurt these days with my expressions,” said Mujica in an interview with the radio station M24. He explained his statements using prison jargon in personal conversations - a habit that had remained since his time in prison. During the years of the dictatorship in Uruguay in 1970-80, Mucha spent almost 15 years in prison for involvement in the rebel movement.

As local media reported earlier, at the beginning of April, before the press conference, Mujika did not notice that the microphone was turned on, and the broadcast began on the presidential website. He called the leader of Argentina "old woman", adding that she was "even worse" than her late husband, Nestor.

Corr. RIA Novosti recalls that Mujica is one of the most extravagant presidents of Latin American countries. He does not live in a residence, but in an ordinary house on the outskirts of Montevideo, owned by his wife, he owns only a Volkswagen Beetle 1987 of the year of manufacture. It is known that the president donates up to 90% of his monthly salary to charity.

"She could just shoot his head off." The US President made another attempt to convince Congress to limit the circulation of weapons in the country. The new bill will soon be voted on. Among the measures proposed are the prohibition of multiply-charged stores, the mandatory verification of all potential buyers and the introduction of control over the sale of weapons through the Internet. However, Republicans in the Senate promised to block the new bill, according to Kirill Belyaninov (Kommersant).

The president’s initiative met not only opposition from Republicans in Congress, but also representatives of the arms lobby. According to the head of the influential National Rifle Association, Wayne Lapierre, the administration "is trying to make political capital by exploiting the death of children in Sandy Hook." "The White House wants to declare the schools zones free of weapons, and thus makes it clear to every killer that schools are the place where you can arrange a slaughter," the lobbyist gave his vision of the situation.

This aggressive point of view is shared by Republican legislators. “I would like the headmaster МХNUMX to lie in the office of the school in the office,” said Congressman Louis Gaumert. “Then she wouldn’t have to rush at the attacker empty-handed, and she could just shoot his head off.”

Same-sex hysteria. After florist Stuzmen from Washington refused to provide flowers for a same-sex couple because of her religious beliefs, explaining to young people that marriage is a union of a man and a woman, one of the future spouses described the situation on the social network. “Letters of hate” began to be sent to the florist with insults and threats of retribution. She was threatened with beatings of children, causing personal harm, reports "RT". Moreover, Stuzmen is charged with violating the law: after all, same-sex marriages were legalized in Washington state last November. Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in the state of Washington is prohibited.

The woman explains: “We take gays to work. I have gay friends, and this has never been a problem for me. I just do not want to promote gay marriage. To be tolerant of the spread of homosexuality is to tolerate evil, lawlessness and sin. ”

As “RT” reminds, earlier, in February, a lawsuit was filed in the United States against a baker who refused to bake a couple lesbian wedding cake.

To this we must add that Ted Johnson from the British edition “News Letter” (translation source - Mixednews.ru) writes with irony:

“Although the consequences of homosexual relations were not properly explained and understood in the West — not least because of our liberal corrupt government and media — in Russia it is generally accepted and proven that children raised by homosexual couples do not study well and have health problems and eventually become moral cripples. Maybe it's time to collect things and move to Russia? "

        It is time The philosopher ship, as in May 1922, V.I. Lenin proposed replacing the use of the death penalty for those who actively oppose the Soviet regime with deportation abroad. Matvienko and others like her:


        Moral - who are they?

        Alfred Koch:

        “The people are not adequate to their interests. The people who avidly loved Stalin cannot be considered adequate. ”

        “In order to buy, you need to have money. Russian can not earn anything, so they can not buy anything. "

        “The long-suffering people suffer because of their own fault. Nobody occupied them, nobody conquered them, no one drove them to prison. They knocked on themselves, imprisoned themselves and shot themselves. Therefore, this people is reaping what they have reaped from what they deserve ”...

        Y. PIVOVAROV: “I am convinced that Russia will leave Siberia in the next half century: the depopulation processes will be so strong that Russia will geographically narrow to the Urals.

        ... Russia needs to lose ... (don't be alarmed) Siberia and the Far East. "


        Grigory YAVLINSKY: "In the event of his coming to power, the leader of Yabloko promises, first of all, to" bring out the evil spirits "of Russian fascism throughout the country."

        "... National Bolshevism, Russian fascism, a bias towards the nationalist side of this whole movement, an attempt to find a political Russian nation, and so on are fundamentally unacceptable to us. We treat this with great concern and wariness, because games of this kind are very dangerous ...

        "... we will unite all those civic organizations that are close to us in spirit - like, for example, the" green ", human rights defenders headed by Sergei Adamovich Kovalev. We consider this to be the most important thing."

        "... the fight against the brown threat in Russia, the fight against Russian fascism is really one of the key tasks


        Quote from the YABLOKO party website: "... the Generalissimo had the trick not only to make an exception, but also to hypocritically proclaim a toast to the Russian people (and nothing more!) At a reception in the Kremlin after the Victory Parade. Thus, he humiliated other peoples of our country...

        "The surge of fascism in our country, first of all, was prepared ... by our school. It does not teach humanism, tolerance, understanding of the value of cultural diversity. At the same time, our mentality, however bitterly, is characterized by the heroization and romanticization of terror and violence."


        Artemy TROITSKY (rock journalist, music critic, one of the first propagandists of rock music in the USSR):

        For the most part, I consider Russian men to be animals, creatures not even of the second, but of the third grade. When I see them - from the cops to the deputies, I think that they, in principle, should die out ... In fact, I do not mind this breed at all. And, if instead of the one that will die out (and it will die out), a new growth of normal men will grow - clean, tidy, smart ... http: //slon.ru/articles/238959/

        Roman DOBROKHOTOV (Russian public figure, leader of the youth movement “WE”, member of the federal political council of the movement “Solidarity”):

        Two-thirds of Russia's population are xenophobic and latent criminals. If we give them freedom now, it will be too late to correct it after a few years.

        Oleg MATVEYCHEV (member of the commission under the Presidium of the General Council of "United Russia" to coordinate campaigning in the regions, spelling and punctuation of the original): "Do you know what I dream about? so that one day you all gather on the big Maidan, all screaming screamers, network hamsters, fighters with corruption, envious people counting money in someone else’s feed, manipulated suckers and losers of all stripes accusing anyone of this just gathered themselves with all your banners with foam at rat and officials shouting at the lanterns !!! no corruption! power to the people! so that everyone gathers so that no one remains at home the main thing is that everyone crawls out it’s a pity only there is no such area in China, it was good for Tien An Myn to hold 1 million people, and when all of you crawled out the tank army would come out and all the shit would have wound the whole nation everything would burn on the caterpillars with hot iron, and then, after Tianan Myn in China, we would also have economic growth of 20 percent a year for 30-10 years in a row ”...

Could there be a decent life here, as in Europe? I think the old Russian history will end when Russia loses Siberia and the Far East ...

        I am convinced that Russia will leave Siberia in the next half century: the depopulation processes will be so strong that Russia will geographically narrow to the Urals

      In 2004, leftists and anarchists in Great Britain promised that when Thatcher dies, they will come to Trafalgar Square to celebrate the event. And now the dream has come true, and you can celebrate, though not in Trafalgar Square, but in Brinkston. But the intensity of the festivities did not become weaker from this. As the organizers themselves joke, "Thatcher scored on the working class, so we decided to score on the news of her death." Actually, the photos below show well that not only in Russia they rejoiced at the death of Thatcher ...

    The North Korean military hopes to additionally “load” the enemy’s reconnaissance so that it misses the launch moment.
    To monitor the launches, the Americans brought to the shores of the Korean Peninsula the floating radar SBX-1, capable of tracking the trajectory of ballistic missiles at a distance of 2 thousand kilometers. Also yesterday, the danger level on the island of Guam was increased. Now there is a “yellow” (medium) threat level.

    Sometimes the threat of war is worse than the local war itself. The DPRK plays well on the nerves, the Japs have already deployed air defense systems under their own defense ministry. Having a nuclear weapons, the country forces to reckon with it - blocking sanctions against a nuclear power is very dangerous for its neighbors.
    The US president made another attempt to convince Congress to limit arms trafficking in the country.

      the key word is vrazhin, everything else is from the evil one!

      Report Margaret Thatcher on the collapse of the USSR (USA, Houston, 11.1991):
      “The Soviet Union is a country that posed a serious threat to the Western world. I am not talking about a military threat. She, in fact, was not. Our countries are quite well armed, including nuclear weapons.

      I mean the economic threat. Thanks to a planned policy and a peculiar combination of moral and material incentives, the Soviet Union managed to achieve high economic indicators. The percentage of growth in gross national product was approximately two times higher than in our countries. If we take into account the enormous natural resources of the USSR, then with the rational management of the economy the Soviet Union had very real opportunities to oust us from world markets.

      Therefore, we have always taken actions aimed at weakening the economy of the Soviet Union and creating internal difficulties for it.

      The main was the imposition of an arms race. We knew that the Soviet government adhered to the doctrine of equality of arms of the USSR and its opponents in NATO. As a result of this, the USSR spent about 15% of the budget on armaments, while our countries - about 5%. Of course, this negatively affected the economy of the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union had to save on investments in the production of so-called consumer goods.

      We expected to cause mass discontent among the population in the USSR. One of our tricks was supposedly a “leak” of information about the quantity of weapons we had much more than in reality, with the aim of provoking additional investments by the USSR in this economically disadvantageous sphere.

      An important place in our policy was taken into account by the imperfection of the USSR constitution. Formally, she allowed an immediate exit from the USSR of any union republic that wished (moreover, by practically resolving it by a simple majority of its Supreme Council). True, the realization of this right at that time was practically impossible due to the cementing role of the Communist Party and law enforcement agencies. Nevertheless, in this constitutional feature there were potential opportunities for our policy.

      Unfortunately, despite our efforts, the political situation in the USSR for a long time remained very stable. A serious place in the formation of our policy (mainly US policy) was occupied by the issue of creating a missile defense system (SDI). I must admit that most experts were against the creation of SDI, because they believed that this system would be extremely expensive and not reliable enough, namely, the SDI shield could be broken if the Soviet Union invested much less (5-10 times) in offensive weapons.
      1. Karlsonn
        Karlsonn April 12 2013 15: 24

        Nevertheless, the decision on the development of SDI was made in the hope that the USSR would be engaged in the creation of a similar expensive system. To our great regret, the Soviet government did not take such a decision, but confined itself to political declarations of protest.

        It was a very difficult situation for us. However, soon information was received about the imminent death of the Soviet leader and the possibility of a person coming to power with our help, thanks to which we will be able to realize our intentions. This was an assessment of my experts (and I always formed a very qualified group of experts on the Soviet Union and, as necessary, contributed to the additional emigration of the necessary specialists from the USSR).

        This man was M. Gorbachev, who was characterized by experts as a careless, suggestible and very ambitious person. He had good relations with the majority of the Soviet political elite, and therefore his coming to power with our help was quite subtly possible.

        The activities of the Popular Front did not require large sums of money: they were mainly expenses for multiplying equipment and financial support for functionaries. However, the support of long strikes of miners demanded very significant funds.

        There was great controversy among experts about the nomination of B. Yeltsin as the leader of the Popular Front, with the prospect of his subsequent election to the Supreme Council of the Russian Republic and then head of the Russian Republic (as opposed to USSR leader M. Gorbachev). Most experts were against the candidacy of B. Yeltsin, given his past and personality traits.

        However, the relevant contacts and agreements took place, and the decision to “push through” Boris Yeltsin was made. With great difficulty, Yeltsin was elected Chairman of the Supreme Council of Russia and a declaration of Russian sovereignty was immediately adopted. The question is from whom, if the Soviet Union was once formed around Russia? This was indeed the beginning of the collapse of the USSR.

        Substantial assistance was provided to Yeltsin during the events of August 1991, when the leading leadership of the USSR, blocking Gorbachev, tried to restore the system that ensured the integrity of the USSR. Yeltsin's supporters held out, and he gained significant (though not complete) real power over the security forces.

        All the Union republics, taking advantage of the situation, declared their sovereignty (although many did so in a peculiar form that did not exclude their membership in the Union).

        Thus, now the de facto collapse of the Soviet Union has occurred, but de jure the Soviet Union exists. I assure you that in the next month you will hear about the legal process of the collapse of the Soviet Union ... "

    Iranian parliament initiates revision of Turkmanchay peace with Russia

    publication time: 10: 19
    last update: 11: 08



    The Iranian news agency FARS reported that members of the Islamic Republic’s parliament are working on a bill to revise the Turkmanchay peace treaty, drafted by Alexander Griboyedov and signed by the Russian Empire and Persia in 1828.

    According to the deputies, the territories conquered by Russia "thanks to the betrayal of the French" were, according to the text of the treaty, ceded not forever, but for 100 years, and should be returned to Iran in the same way as Hong Kong returned by Great Britain to China.

    It is interesting that the Iranian deputies talk about the return of the "occupied" Azerbaijani lands, while the main acquisitions of Russia following the war of 1826-1828 were the Erivan and Nakhichevan khanates, a significant part of which is now the allied Armenia of Iran, and not Azerbaijan.

    Most of modern Azerbaijan, along with Georgia and Dagestan, fell to Russia under the earlier Gulistan Peace Treaty (1813), which ended the Russo-Persian War of 1804-1813, which Iranian MPs describe as "an attempt to free Georgia from Russian occupation."

      I believe that this is the trick of their marginals - there are such everywhere ... they are not in their position now to try to run into us and Armenia as well ... or an attempt to scare Azerbaijan so that it cooperates less with Turkey and the USA ... but in general it is interesting. :)) )

    "The terrorist is calling on militants in Syria to create an Islamist state that will be the cornerstone of the rebuilding of the Caliphate." - Bandits and terrorists have not yet created more than one normal state, and I think they will not, each godfather will pull the blanket over himself.

    "In this difficult situation, the main thing is to prevent the Golan Heights from becoming a base for terrorist attacks against Israel. The least of all evils is the replacement of Syrian troops by the Free Syrian Army (FSA) units, which adhere to a moderate ideology," Yakov Kedmi, an Israeli security expert. " - Israel, as they say, for what they fought for and ran into. But Israel will have a reason to seize the Golan Heights, and maybe all of Syria. Assad needs help immediately.

    About the DPRK- "For this, self-propelled launchers with Musudan missiles are constantly redeployed, either taking out of cover or sending back. Ryonghap sources believe that in this way the North Korean military hopes to additionally" load "enemy reconnaissance so that it missed the launch moment . " - It looks like these are mock-ups (false targets) - if Eun is not the real missiles (if he has them of course) are hidden for serious reasons.

    "Not serious about serious. Today" Vesti ", referring to" Interfax ", placed among other world news information that the launch of the North Korean ballistic missile" Musudan "was postponed. The reason for the postponement was the difficulties with" Windows 8 ". The New Yorker, citing reports from the CTAC. " - And Eun's Windows is still pirated - "buy certified software from Microsoft and you will not have problems with launching missiles with nuclear warheads" laughing

    Alfred Koch:

    “The people are not adequate to their interests. The people who avidly loved Stalin cannot be considered adequate. ”

    “In order to buy, you need to have money. Russian can not earn anything, so they can not buy anything. "

    “The long-suffering people suffer because of their own fault. Nobody occupied them, nobody conquered them, no one drove them to prison. They knocked on themselves, imprisoned themselves and shot themselves. Therefore, this people is reaping what they have reaped from what they deserve ”...

    Y. PIVOVAROV: “I am convinced that Russia will leave Siberia in the next half century: the depopulation processes will be so strong that Russia will geographically narrow to the Urals.

National Bolshevism, Russian fascism, a bias towards the nationalist side of this whole movement, an attempt to find a political Russian nation, and so on are fundamentally unacceptable to us. We treat this with great concern and wariness, because games of this kind are very dangerous ... "http://community.livejournal.com/ru_politics/35474621.html

    Boris KHAZANOV (aka Gieronim Moiseevich FAYBUSOVICH, lives in Germany - Russian prose writer, essayist, translator, Russian Prize laureate 2008, partner of the competition’s founders is the Presidential Center Boris N. Yeltsin Foundation):

    In this country, goats grazed with their sides grazed, along the fences scrawny villagers make their way. I used to be ashamed of this homeland, where every day - humiliation, every meeting - like a slap in the face, where everyone - the landscape and people - offends the look. But how nice it is to come to America and see the sea of ​​smiles spilled!

    O. DERIPASKA: Unless, of course, cast away all sorts of tales about democracy, supposedly someone decides something by going into the voting booth. In fact, booths exist so that the population has the opportunity to go there - solemnly, to the sound of music.

    Alexei Shiropaev (Russian publicist. Currently is a Co-Chair of the National Democratic Alliance.)

    "... Russia is not a country, but a phantasmagoria, and a dangerous one, striving to impose itself on the world. Yes, in fact, Russians are not a nation in the normal sense, but a phantasmagoria ..."

    "Russia cannot be remade. It can only be abolished - of course, bloodlessly and in a civilized manner. It will never become European and democratic. No matter how Russia hides behind a veil of Europeanism, it will always carry within itself the evil of tyranny and aggression, a wild booming steppe. Pessimists assert, that the majority of Russians cannot be altered either. The mass psychotype has been formed, it is unusually stable. "

    The Führer is with us - not black bones,
    Not a Hollywood product.
    He is in the discharges of energy air,

    Not giving cheap guarantees.
    This name is Spartan - Hitler -
    It revives under the sun, like an antique.

    Shocking the roof and parade ground,
    The solitary messenger of Olympus,
    Awakening the mystery of the Race.

Or, at least, a gun, in case of critical cultural contradictions to feed these ugly mouths with lead seeds.

    And from the understanding that damned political expediency obliges to try to love them, a hopeless horror rolls around. It is as if you find yourself on a betrothal with a pretty laughing zombie and understand that this is not a performance, it is serious. And you have to hug this sticky something, smelling of spreading flesh and lead to the gate through which you cannot pass without it. Sincerely hoping that our smiles and sunlight will either revive the monster, or spray it in the dust
