The FBI refutes the statement of the mother Tsarnaev. The FBI has denied the mother of a suspected Boston terrorist attack. The fact that the FBI officers called Tsarnaev Sr. after the explosions at the marathon and demanded to appear for questioning, his mother Zubeidat, who is in Chechnya, said yesterday in a telephone conversation with the Associated Press, reports correspondent ITAR-TASS Dmitry Kirsanov.
According to the version presented by Tsarnaeva, she talked on the phone with Tamerlan, who was in Boston, after the tragic events that happened a week ago. He allegedly told her that the FBI had contacted him, notified him of suspicions about him and asked to appear at the meeting with the investigators. However, Tamerlane refused, stating that he did not understand what suspicions were in question, and suggested that the FBI officers themselves come to meet with him if they need it. Then Tamerlane, as his mother told her, informed her that she planned to throw her younger brother Dzhokhar in a car to the university where he was studying. Finally, Tamerlan, according to Tsarnaeva, called shortly before her death on the phone to his wife Catherine Russell, telling her that she and Johar were being followed and fired upon.
The FBI denies that it came into contact with Tsarnaev Sr. after the attack. Commenting on the words of Zubeydat, FBI representative Michael Cortan assured that the only case of a conversation between his department and Tamerlane took place in the 2011 year, as previously reported. Cortan offered to re-read the statement for the press, which had previously been distributed by the FBI. The document stated that “at the beginning of 2011, the foreign government requested” information from the United States about Tamerlan Tsarnaev. “This request was based on the information that he (Tamerlan Tsarnaev) was a follower of radical Islam and a deeply religious person, that he changed dramatically after the 2010 of the year when he was preparing to leave the United States to go to the region where he was located assistance) is a country to join unnamed underground groups, ”the FBI said. In addition, the FBI then "conducted an interview with Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his relatives."
Later, law enforcement officials from the United States clarified that the country requesting the request was Russia.
Johar answers questions. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has come to his senses, now investigators are interrogating him. This was reported yesterday by the TV channel "ABC", reports ITAR-TASS.
He answers questions in writing, since he cannot speak because of a sore throat. Investigators question the criminal in detail about his 26-year-old brother Tamerlane, who was killed in a shootout with the police, as well as about other possible participants in the attack. Law enforcement agencies are interested in the details of the manufacture of explosive devices found in Tsarnaev’s house and during his arrest.
The main suspects in the organization of the terrorist attack during the Boston Marathon - brothers Tamerlane and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev - acted alone, and were not associated with organized terrorist groups outside the United States. This version is followed by the American authorities.
According to the mayor of Boston, Thomas Menino, the leader was the eldest of the Tsarnaev brothers - 26-year-old Tamerlan, who was shot on Thursday late in the evening in the vicinity of Boston. The mayor suggested that it was Tamerlane who “brainwashed” 19-year-old Dzhokharu, who was captured by peace officers a day later in the same area.
Nevertheless, US intelligence agencies are checking the connection of the suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev with the terrorist organization Caucasian Emirate and one of the leaders of the extremist underground Doku Umarov.
"I had a completely insane view." In the American press, writes MIGnews.com, there are new details about the Chechen terrorist brothers. According to the Los Angeles Times, in recent years, Tamerlan Tsarnaev “survived the process of rapid radicalization,” and from 2010, he was about to leave the United States and join an underground jihadist group.
Three months ago, Tamerlane was expelled from the mosque in the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center. During the preaching of the Imam, who praised Martin Luther King, Tsarnaev rose and began to protest violently. He shouted: “You do not dare to glorify this man! He is not a Muslim! ”Eyewitnesses claim that at the same time Tsarnoev had a completely insane appearance.
Tsarneev's wife, under his influence, converted to Islam and wore the hijab.
On the black "BMW". Massachusetts police detained two friends of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who drove around the city on a black BMW with the inscription Terrorista #1 instead of the front number. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to The New York Daily News.
Both detainees are 19-year-olds from Kazakhstan. Neighbors claim that 20 April police drew attention to their car with an inscription and obscene curse on the trunk lid. Both young people were detained on the same day, but released after interrogation.
The next day, the police returned with an arrest warrant. According to the police, the detainees are suspected of violating immigration laws. As the newspaper notes, they are considered friends of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, and a photo of their car was published in a supposedly microblog.
In Kyrgyzstan, militants are recruited. How recruitment of citizens of Kyrgyzstan occurs and whether it is possible to fight this phenomenon, the correspondent told "Voices of Russia" in Kyrgyzstan Bakyt Aman.
In Kyrgyzstan, according to the deputies of the Kyrgyz parliament, militants are actively recruited for the war in Syria. Young people are forced to take direct part in terrorist attacks in different countries of the world or are used as suicide bombers, including in Syria.
In recent months, fifteen young people between the ages of 15 and 20 have left for the southern regions of Kyrgyzstan to Turkey. Almost all of them told their parents that they were leaving for work. But it turned out that the young men were recruited by emissaries of terrorist organizations, and subsequently they were taken to militant camps for further shipment to Syria. This data was published by the deputy of the Kyrgyz parliament Dastanbek Dzhumabekov.
“Some parents learned that their children flew to Istanbul, they thought - to Moscow for work. For a while they called from Istanbul, and they called, said goodbye, said - do not wait for us anymore. We are now in Istanbul, we will soon go to Jihad in Syria, so don’t wait for us, if we don’t come back, we are Shiites, they called themselves that, ”the deputy said.
The State Department will give the Syrian opposition even more money. The United States will double the aid of the Syrian opposition to 250 million dollars and increase the supply of non-combat military supplies. This was told by US Secretary of State John Kerry, reports "Lenta.ru" with reference to France-Presse.
While in Istanbul at a meeting of the “Friends of Syria” group, Mr. Kerry explained that the supply of the Syrian opposition would include not only food and medicine. True, he did not specify, saying only that the composition of the supplies will be determined in cooperation with the heads of the Supreme Military Council of the Syrian opposition.
US media indicated that Washington was going to provide Syrian rebels with body armor, armored personnel carriers, night vision devices and communications equipment. The opposition asked to put them weapon, but here they were refused.
“This conflict is already spilling over borders and threatening neighboring countries. The bloodshed must stop, ”said Kerry, adding that the decisive moment had arrived.
Then the state secretary called on other countries sympathetic to the Syrian opposition to make their own contributions - so that the total amount of aid reaches a billion dollars.
To the cause of democracy, no economic crisis is a hindrance, let us add.
New oil traders and oil buyers appeared. The EU Council at the level of foreign ministers 27 countries of the community today at a meeting in Luxembourg, the possibility of easing the embargo on oil purchases in Syria, convey "Vesti" with reference to ITAR-TASS.
At the meeting, they will talk about granting European companies the right to buy oil from Syrian rebels. In addition, according to sources, the EU will allow its companies to invest in oil production in Syria and sell the corresponding equipment to the rebels. True, it is doubtful that before the end of the war, European business decided to make serious investments in the country where the war is going.
Previously, the "rebels" claimed to control up to 70% of oil fields in northeastern Syria. However, production on them is carried out intermittently. Rebels set fire to wells in the zone of uncertainty. Before the war, Syria produced up to 4 thousands of barrels of oil per day, and now production has declined to less than 2 thousands of barrels.
At the current meeting, ministers do not plan to take decisions on the abolition of arms embargoes in Syria: there is no consensus among the countries of the community on this issue.
The situation in Iraq. Stanislav Ivanov (Iran.ru) said that the leadership of Iraqi Kurdistan makes claims to the federal government on a wide range of issues.
The main ones are: sabotage of Baghdad in the implementation of article 140 of the Iraqi constitution (the fate of the disputed territories), red tape with the adoption of a new law on oil and gas, ambiguity of status and insufficient funding of the peshmerga. Both parties to the conflict try to avoid violent actions and try to reach consensus in parliament or at the negotiating table. Massoud Barzani, the president of Iraqi Kurdistan, has repeatedly stressed that Iraqi Kurds intend to seek their national rights through constitutional means.
Relations between the Iraqi government and the Sunni Arabs are much more complicated. A wave of spontaneous rallies and demonstrations by Sunni Arabs since January has covered food if not all Iraqi provinces with a predominantly Sunni population have been going on for several months now. Demonstrators criticize the government for the low standard of living in one of the richest oil countries in the world, demanding the release of political prisoners, especially women. Sunni Arabs consider themselves to be disadvantaged in their rights under the new regime, many of them are deprived of the right to occupy positions in the public service and in law enforcement agencies, some still have to hide abroad.
The Iraqi Sunni protest movement against the government of Nuri al-Maliki is skillfully used by the Arab monarchies of the Persian Gulf, where the Sunni (Salafi) clans are in power. Saudi Arabia and Qatar are the most active in Iraq. They provide financial, material and military assistance to various groups of the Iraqi armed opposition through the secret services and non-governmental organizations.
Most of the money and weapons fall into the hands of the most radical groups (Wahhabis, Al-Qaeda and others). It looks like Stanislav Ivanov indicates that the Saudis and Qatari decided to turn Iraq into a battlefield between the Sunnis and the Shiites, as they already managed in neighboring Syria.
“... According to Iraqi media reports, a terrorist group (about 250 Islamist Wahhabis) was arrested in the Central Euphrates district, linked to the head of Saudi intelligence B. Ben Sultan and former Iraqi Vice President T. al-Hashimi. In addition to organizing terrorist acts, conducting subversive activities against Iraqi Shiites and fomenting sectarian strife, the task of the group was to recruit and train suicide bombers to carry out terrorist acts in Shiite areas (Baghdad, Karbala, Nedjefe, Diwaniyah). Special attention was paid to terrorist attacks on Shiite shrines in Karbala and Najaf. Funding for this group alone was allocated annually to 250 million. ”
20 March 2013, the analyst recalls, the militants of the Sunni "legions of death" celebrated the tenth anniversary of the invasion of US troops in Iraq by a series of terrorist attacks. In Shiite districts of Baghdad, at least 56 people died, more than 200 Iraqis were injured.
Shiit Nouri al-Maliki does not enjoy unconditional support and authority even among Iraqi Shiites. In addition, accusations are heard against al-Maliki and the conduct of pro-American policies.
Chuck Hagel signaled to Iran. The head of the Pentagon called the impending deliveries of large quantities of weapons to US allies in the Middle East a "very clear" signal to Iran, demonstrating the possibility of using force to neutralize the nuclear threat. He stated this during a Middle Eastern tour, reports Rosbaltreferring to online media.
10 billion-dollar contracts involve the sale of V-22 Osprey military transport converters to Israel, KC-135 tanker aircraft, anti-radar missiles and radar equipment for installation on combat aircraft to Israel. The UAE will receive F-16 fighters and missiles for them. The same air-to-ground missiles of the United States are going to sell to Saudi Arabia, which has previously purchased American fighter jets.
Hagel said: “I don’t think there can be any doubt that this is another very clear signal to Iran.” According to him, the use of military force should be the last means of deterring Iran on the path to possessing nuclear weapons, and there is still time for diplomacy and economic sanctions.
The upcoming arms contracts should first of all strengthen Israel’s high-quality military superiority in the region, said C. Hagel. He added: “Every sovereign state has the right to self-defense and self-defense. Iran’s nuclear program is a threat, and Israel itself decides how to protect itself from it. ”
Rosbalt recalls that earlier the US Senate adopted a resolution according to which Washington will provide comprehensive assistance to Israel if the Jewish state decides to launch a preemptive strike on Iran or is subjected to aggression on its part.
Turkey: Israel should refrain from "dirty tricks". Commenting on the upcoming negotiations on the payment of compensation to the families of those killed on the ship Mavi Marmara in an interview with the newspaper Hurriyet, Turkish officials warned that Israel should refrain from "dirty tricks", writes MIGnews.com.
A Turkish diplomat told the newspaper: “Israel must understand well that there is nothing to bargain with. Negotiations on compensation should not become bargain bargaining. We want to solve this problem in the next week. ”
A Turkish source points out: “We want to close this problem in one session. Discussing the price of a human life is not the most pleasant thing. This should be done accordingly. ”
From the Turkish side, the talks will be headed by Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc and Deputy Foreign Minister Feridun Sheryloglu. From the Israeli side, the head of the National Security Council, Yakov Amidror, and the special representative of Benjamin Netanyahu, Yosef Cikhanover, will participate in the talks.
Today will begin military negotiations between Israel and Turkey. The British newspaper "Sunday Times" spread the information that on April 22 military negotiations between Israel and Turkey will begin, writes MIGnews.com.
Israel allegedly wants to deploy an advanced strike force in Turkish territory to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities. Israeli national security adviser to the national security system, Yakov Amidror, will offer the Turks advanced missile and surveillance technology in exchange for the right to use the Turkish Air Force Akinchi base northwest of Ankara.
In addition to reaching an agreement on compensation for the families of the nine Turks who died during the raid of the Israeli commandos on the Mavi Marmara, Amidror should try to revive the Israeli-Turkish agreement of the 1996 of the year, which allowed the IDF Air Force to use Akinchi base, train in Turkish airspace and use Turkish air space. In exchange, the Turks can use Israeli airspace and the IDF Air Force Base in the Negev.
In order to achieve this goal, "Amidror must take advantage of his old connections in Ankara."
In exchange for the right to use the Turkish military base, Amidror will offer the Turks a modern system of thermal imaging, which allows pilots of combat aircraft to scan vast areas when flying at high speed in search of possible targets. The system creates an accurate display of the surface within 150 km, day and night, in any weather. The Turks are extremely interested in this technology, and in 2008, an agreement was signed with them on its delivery, but it was canceled in 2011.
Amidror also allegedly offers the Turks two intelligence systems of the Israeli company Elta.

Kosovo will be independent? The prime ministers of Serbia and the self-proclaimed Republic of Kosovo, Ivica Dacic and Hashim Thaci, paraphrase an agreement on the normalization of bilateral relations on April 19 in Brussels. Thus, the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, which lasted ten rounds, is successfully completed, "Voice of Russia" with reference to ITAR-TASS. The initialling of the treaty on the normalization of relations between Belgrade and Pristina means the recognition of Kosovo’s independence, Thaci said.
According to him, the text of the document guarantees the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of Kosovo. “The treaty, which was initialed by representatives of two states, is de jure a recognition of Kosovo by Serbia,” he told reporters.

Just before the fight did not come. As reported "Vesti" With reference to ITAR-TASS, a demonstration against the legalization of same-sex marriage in the French capital gathered 270 thousands of people. These figures led the organizers held on Sunday processions. Police data is more modest - about 50 thousand people. In French society, the “Marriage for All” bill is strongly opposed. But his opponents cannot boast of strength: during the parallel rally in support of the "reform", there were only 3,5 thousand participants.
The stumbling block was the idea of giving same-sex couples the right to adopt children. This is opposed by 53% French. But Justice Minister Christine Tobira, to whose office President Francois Hollande commissioned the work on the document, made it clear that the new law would completely equalize all couples in their rights.
Voting on the bill will take place tomorrow.
Police detained several hundred protesters, many of whom have been charged with offering resistance to law enforcement officials.
Restless situation was felt in the hall of the meeting of deputies. A group of opposition lawmakers almost attacked Kristin Tobira with their fists. The slaughter was avoided, but the incident caused outrage in the Matignon Palace, the residence of the Prime Minister of the French government.
President Hollande has broken records of unpopularity: 75% French are dissatisfied with them. Basically, the French lose confidence in their leader due to the unstable economic situation. The president must reduce unemployment and raise the standard of living, and he pushes legalization of same-sex marriages to the first place, the French are indignant.
Belgium decided to control all Chechens. Referring to the belgian media channel "RT" reports that the security services of Belgium have received information that extremists may be in the Chechen diaspora of the country. They are most active in Antwerp.
The newspaper Het Nieuwsblad Op Zondag quotes a source in the special services: “We have already taken the necessary measures, but heightened vigilance with regard to terrorism is important in our country today. Especially considering what some Chechens who have already lived in our country have already done. ”
It is also reported that 2010 extremists were arrested in Belgium in the 14 year in the framework of the rally against the terrorist network, three of them came from Chechnya. In 2011, a Chechen from Liege was sentenced to 12 years for preparing a terrorist attack against a Danish newspaper.
There are about 11 thousand Chechens living in Belgium.
“The whole world is surprised that the terrorists in Boston are of Chechen origin. But it doesn’t surprise us at all, ”explained the same unnamed source. - We need to increase our vigilance. Even if at the moment there is no concrete evidence of a threat in our country. ”
Subtleties of diplomacy. Japan has not received official notification from Seoul about the cancellation of the visit of the South Korean foreign minister to Japan. This was stated today by the Secretary General of the Cabinet of Ministers Yoshihide Suga, reports from Tokyo correspondent ITAR-TASS Igor Belyaev.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade of South Korea today announced an official protest to Japan and postponed indefinitely the visit of the head of the department, Yoon Bye-See to Tokyo. The reason was a visit by members of the Japanese government to Yasukuni temple.
Referring to the visit to the temple by members of the government, Suga stressed that they did it "as ordinary Japanese citizens." “The temple was visited from the standpoint of ordinary Japanese citizens, and not members of the government,” Yoshihide Suga emphasized.
Taro Aso, Deputy Prime Minister of Japan, and Yoshitaka Shindo, Minister of Administrative Affairs and Communications, visited the Yasukuni temple in Tokyo last weekend. Shinzo Abe refrained from visiting the temple, but on the occasion of the traditional spring festival, he handed him offerings on behalf of the head of government. This act of Abe is particularly marked in the South Korean protest.
The Yasukuni Shinto Shrine differs from other similar religious buildings in that it is not a place of worship for the gods, but for soldiers who fought for Japan. The temple lists all the Japanese who died on the battlefield from the middle of the XIX century. The list also includes war criminals who were executed following the Tokyo Trial.
North Korea will talk to China. The DPRK agreed to negotiate with China to reduce tensions on the Korean Peninsula. Reports about it "RT" with links to ITAR-TASS and the Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun.
According to diplomatic sources, negotiations can begin after the completion of joint exercises of the United States and South Korea, that is, at the end of the month.
Invincible Russian corruption: this is exactly how China sees it. In the article “Corruption in Russian: a hurricane sweeping away everything in its path,” Ji Syui, Sheng Shiliang, Cao Yan ("Huanqiu", China; source of translation - "InoSMI") believe that the roots of the pessimism of Russians regarding corruption go into a deep past. “From tsarist Russia to the Soviet Union, from the Union to the Russian Federation, it’s like lice that is impossible to get rid of, or a malignant tumor that cannot be cured, corruption has been tormenting the« mighty northern bear ”all this time, the authors write.
A network survey in Russia conducted on the topic “What can help Russia cope with corruption?” Gave depressing results. 5% of respondents answered: “International Court of Justice”, 3% put on the president, other 3% on the judicial authorities, and 1% believe in the Prime Minister or the Duma. What are the remaining 80%? They thought that if we are talking about corruption, then nothing will help Russia.
The Moscow correspondent of the magazine “Huanqiu”, Cao Yan, believes that in Russia in very many cases it is impossible to achieve anything without giving someone a “hand”.
“You communicate with the policeman, you come to the hospital for a doctor's examination,” the Chinese writes, “you give the child to kindergarten or school:“ gifts ”are needed everywhere. My colleagues from China once parked in the wrong place, the car was taken to the police car parking lot, so they had to go after it to the traffic police together with the Russian worker Igor. Filled about half of all the necessary papers, then the traffic cop said that you need to stand aside, wait half an hour. Igor, who knows the local customs better than anyone else in this company, went to a nearby supermarket, bought a bottle of vodka and hid it in a belt. When he returned, he started a conversation with the policeman, at the same time showing him the bottle and trying to prevent the other traffic cops from seeing anything. The traffic police officer dealing with our business understood everything without further ado and immediately opened a special drawer by the table for “gifts”. Igor quietly put the bottle in there, and right there our business was settled. There was also another case. I, along with my Russian colleague Eugene, went to the interview. Eugene was driving; when he saw that there were no cars ahead on the road, he immediately hit the gas pedal all the way down - who knew that a couple of traffic police officers were ahead. The inspector whistled us to stop, showed that the speeding is fixed on the photo, and imposed a fine of one thousand rubles on us. Eugene bargained a bit with him, agreed that Eugene would give him 500 rubles, but without writing a fine. <...> In recent years, there are not enough places in Russian kindergartens, therefore in many areas children are recorded there right from birth. There are parents who are ready to give money to the authorities so that the child can go to kindergarten at the right time. There are students who bribe teachers before the exam to get credit. There are people who bribe employers to get a job. If something broke in the house and you want it to be repaired in the shortest possible time, you need to pay utility bills. Came from another country? As long as you deal with all the paperwork, getting a residence permit and a work permit, at each stage someone will also have to pay. ”
Venezuelan news. Nicholas Maduro, announcing on Sunday the composition of his cabinet of ministers, promised that the period of his government’s rule would be a time of economic prosperity, justice and peace. Reports about it correspondent RIA Novosti Oleg Vyazmitinov.
According to him, this time will be "a period of building peace and justice," "economic prosperity, stability, equality and coexistence." Maduro stressed that everyone who is behind the organization of acts of violence will be punished, noting that the circumstances of the death of nine people who died in various incidents after the elections are already being investigated.
In New Zealand, they do it with laughter. The authorities of New Zealand have selected a half-month girl from Russian parents. It happened after they brought the baby to the hospital for examination, they report "Vesti".
The child's leg has swollen - as it turned out, because of a crack. A day later, social services presented a court decision: the baby will be withdrawn due to the danger of violence against him. Where little Victoria is now, neither her mother, Paulina 19-year-old, nor her husband, also a Russian, know. They did not have time to issue Russian citizenship to their daughter.
The TV channel "Russia 24" contacted the grandmother of a newborn who lives in Russia.
“My eldest daughter called and said that my youngest daughter was taken to the hospital - my younger granddaughter had something with a leg. And literally in a few minutes Dasha called, all in tears, said that they wanted to take our little girl, Vika, without explanation. The day after Polina was taken to hospital with a child, social workers came to her ward. They told her, moreover, with laughter, it was heard, go and say goodbye to the child. Moreover, these social workers did not introduce themselves, did not say what their names were, did not show their job certificates - nothing, ”the woman told reporters.
The Commissioner for Children's Rights Pavel Astakhov has already appealed to the Foreign Ministry with a request to verify information that the New Zealand authorities have unreasonably taken the infant child from the Russian family. He also sent inquiries to the Russian ambassador to New Zealand and the prime minister of that country.
DHS knew nothing. The US Department of Homeland Security, which oversees all enterprises with explosives, said it was unaware of the existence of a fertilizer plant in the city of West Texas before the explosion, the channel said "RT". But according to the law, all plants that produce fertilizers are obliged to notify the ministry - if the volume of ammonium nitrate exceeds 180 kg.
The volume of hazardous substance at a plant in Texas in 1350 times this limit.
As a result of the April 18 explosion, at least 14 people died, 60 went missing. Around 200 a person was seriously injured. More than 100 houses were destroyed.
Features of national patriotism. The new cyber security bill CISPA was approved by the US House of Representatives. Further, the document will go to the Senate for consideration, after which it may be signed by the president. About how the new bill will affect the lives of ordinary Americans, told reporter "RT" Gayane Chichakian.
The idea of conducting total surveillance of citizens is supported by both republican and democratic forces of the USA. For example, the infamous “Patriot Act” includes such provisions as telephone wiretapping, replacing with the so-called “national security letters” from the FBI arrest warrants, which allows bureau employees to spy on users in the network (providers or someone else does not have rights to inform anyone about the receipt of such letters), provisions that oblige bankers to report on the financial activities of citizens, and many others. There is even a provision on libraries: the government can find out what a person is reading.
But terrorism against the background of such laws is only being strengthened - in response to the use of violence by the state.
Comrade Kerby. Alan Cullison of "The Wall Street Journal" (source abbr. translation - "Inopressa") talked about an American who explains to the general Russian public how bad it is to live in the United States.
Tim Kirby, an expat from the suburbs of Cleveland, says he wants to become a Russian citizen, and argues that Stalin was not such a bad leader as other historians think.
Journalist Alan Cullison notes that Kerby broadcasts on the Russian state radio station Mayak and often appears on state television channels.
“In Russia, he makes a name for himself as the“ Joe Plumber ”appointed by the Kremlin. He explains to Russian listeners what is wrong in America. ”
The journalist cites the opinion of one of Kirby’s radio listeners, Alexander Nefyodov, 25-year-old from Murmansk: “We think: if we have something bad, then in America this is probably better.” However, the transfer of Kirby leads him to the conclusion that in America "everything is exactly the same or worse."
“Kirby makes a brilliant career at a time when the Kremlin is building up a campaign against American influence,” notes the publication. He regularly broadcasts on the international channel "RT", "generously funded by the Kremlin."
Kirby himself says that for most Americans, the American dream is a myth, and this dream is best achieved in Russia. “Kirby modestly refers to her own hardships in America,” writes the author of the article. He says that he grew up in an area where whites were in the minority, and therefore feels uncomfortable in a respectable society and is hostile to power.
After graduating from college, Kerby went to Kazakhstan as a volunteer of the American Peace Corps. Later he ended up in Moscow and became a computer games designer there, and also took up journalism.
About his current job, he says: “I always wanted to influence society in a positive way, and now I have this opportunity.”
Geographic strength. The Ambassador of the Czech Republic to the United States, Ivan Gandalovich, appealed to American citizens not to confuse the Czech Republic ... with Chechnya. A statement by Czech diplomats prepared after the American segments of Twitter and Facebook overwhelmed reports from indignant Americans accusing the Czech Republic of involvement in the bombings during the Boston Marathon.
"The Czech Republic is the state of central Europe, and Chechnya is part of the Russian Federation," explains the document.
Earlier there were publications of excerpts from the messages of the American Twitter users confusing the Czech Republic and Chechnya, "Vesti" with reference to ITAR-TASS.
"In the Czech Republic, good beer, beautiful women and men who kill athletes," wrote one of the users. “My father sent SMS to his acquaintances all day so that none of them would go to Czechoslovakia,” writes another. “Both terrorists came from the Czech Republic. By the way, where is she at all? ”- wonders the third. Czech journalists who viewed Americans on Twitter on the terrorist attack in Boston found this: “Damn the Czech Republic! I believe that now we will bomb her! ”
