Syrian troops took al-Qusayr. The troops of Bashar al-Assad took the city of al-Qusayr, which was considered to be a strategically important stronghold of the rebels. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to BBC News.

Government forces destroyed at least 70 opposition members. "France-Presse" said that the troops of Assad reached the city center and seized administrative buildings. True, the TV channel Al Jazeera notes that the fighting for the city continues.

On the eve of the assault, the Syrian army conducted a massive shelling of insurgent positions. The troops used the installation "Grad".

Capturing Qusayr will allow Assad troops to control Syria’s coast, BBC News reports. For the opposition, this city was important, because thanks to it the rebels could penetrate into neighboring Lebanon.

France-Presse writes that Assad sought to seize the city before the start of the conference on resolving the Syrian conflict, which is to be held in June. Russia and the United States have agreed on its conduct.

The will of the Syrians. In an interview with the Argentine newspaper Clarin and the news agency Telam, Bashar Assad said that the basis of any political solution to the crisis in Syria is the will of the Syrian people, which should be expressed through ballots.

As transmits SANA, he noted that Syria welcomes the rapprochement of the Russian-American positions and is ready to support any proposals that will help stop the violence and lead to a political settlement. Syria is ready for dialogue with any Syrian party that has no secret or overt ties with Israel and rejects terrorism.

Comrade Asad indicated that Israel supports the terrorists, directs and instructs them in accordance with its own interests, which overlap with the interests of some other states, including Qatar and Turkey. These parties do not want a political settlement in Syria and support terrorism.

Thierry Maysan spoke about the absorbers of Syria. A well-known French publicist Thierry Maysan in an interview with Iranian television channel Al-Alyam said that tens of thousands of foreign terrorists had infiltrated into Syria with one goal - to destroy it in the interests of the West and Zionism, reports SANA.

Comrade Maysan stressed that there are 50 thousands of mercenaries from all countries of the world, including Somalia and Indonesia, in the country. They have special equipment, through which they receive information from NATO through satellites about the locations of the Syrian army.

Meyssan also noted that the Syrian leadership is protecting its people. ATS army consists of representatives of all sectors of society, and it can not be anything other than the protector of the people.

Further, the thinker pointed out that the Western, American, European and Arab media grossly distort the facts, ignoring the mass killings of civilians and military personnel committed by armed groups, and cover up their hostile activities to undermine the peaceful coexistence of representatives of all faiths, which relies on the fatwas of some sheikhs , about the need to kill Muslims of other faiths and expel Christians from the UAR

Western mercenaries, the publicist continues, destroyed everything their hands reached. Motorways, bridges, railways, communication facilities were destroyed.

Meyssan stressed that most of the militants are mercenaries who moved to Syria from abroad in order to destroy it under the pretext of “jihad”. He noted that the United States began the war against the ATS ten years ago. They repeatedly tried to attack her, but in the end they decided to fight not with their own hands, but entrusted this dirty business to their allies in the NATO bloc and other countries, in particular, to the monarchies of the Gulf.

Then Comrade Maysan condemned France for trying to revive colonial policies. France attacked Libya with the help of NATO, killing more than 160 thousands of Libyans under the pretext of "protecting civilians." Now she is trying to repeat the same scenario in the SAR.

According to Maysan, European countries are well aware that extremists, if they come to power, will create chaos in Syria. However, their only interest is gas. The same thing happened in Iraq: it was destroyed in order to control oil wells. Meyssan is convinced that the West is going to absorb Syria with its natural resources.

Two sides of the Syrian war. "Inopressa" made a review on the topical Syrian topic.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Russia is raising the stakes in the Syrian game: it sent at least a dozen warships to patrol waters near the Russian naval base in Syria. "Officials of the United States and Europe regarded it as a new aggressive position, designed, among other things, to guard the West and Israel from interfering in the bloody civil war in Syria."

The authors of the article clarify: “Western officials say they are not afraid of the impending conflict with the outdated fleet Russia, but the presence of these ships is a new potential risk factor, creating the risk of miscalculations in this increasingly explosive region. "

The situation is escalating. On Thursday, US officials said that Israel’s new air strikes on batches of Yakhont missiles purchased by Syria in Russia several years ago are possible (intelligence agencies believe that the transfer of these Hezbollah missiles is possible).

Further, President Putin "made it clear this week that, despite the objections of the United States and Israel, he is not refusing to supply modern air defense systems to Syria." According to Americans and Europeans, Putin intends to ensure that the West does not even think about the military operation in Syria according to the Libyan scenario.

In addition, the US fears that Russia will send C-300 complexes to Syria at the end of May.

The New York Times writes that on Thursday, the United States declared: Russia sent modern cruise missiles to Syria, intended for strikes against ships. “Russia has previously delivered to Syria one of the models of these Yakhont missiles, but recently rockets equipped with ultra-modern radar, which increases their effectiveness, were delivered,” journalists say. "Yakhonty" - powerful weapon, thanks to which the Syrian military will not allow international forces to "neither establish a naval embargo, nor create a no-fly zone, nor carry out airstrikes of a limited scale," the newspaper said.

Republican senator Bob Corker called the supply a hindrance to the political transfer of power and said: "There is an urgent need to increase US assistance to moderate opposition forces capable of leading Syria after Assad."

“Russia offers protection to the despot ruler and protects the bankrupt regime,” said Democratic Senator Robert Menendez.

Anna Zafesova on the website "La Stampa" writes that, according to experts, the entry of Russian warships into the Mediterranean Sea is aimed at controlling the actions of Western countries in the Middle East. After two months of sailing, five ships — the large anti-submarine ship Admiral Panteleev, the landing ships Peresvet and Admiral Nevelskoy, the tanker Pechenga and the rescue tug Fotiy Krylov, which left Vladivostok, crossed the Suez Canal.

Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, Admiral Viktor Chirkov does not exclude the possibility that several nuclear submarines will join the flotilla. Moscow calls the return of its fleet to the Mediterranean a strategic step. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that the ships "will protect Russian interests in the Mediterranean."

What are the interests? The most likely hypothesis, the article says, may be control over the movements of Western forces in the region of Syria, where Russia retained the naval technical base in Tartus.

“A peaceful and consistent resolution of the Syrian crisis is not achievable in the near future, but a significant reduction in violence and bloodshed can be achieved,” writes the American expert on the Middle East, the president of the National Iranian-American Council, Trit Parsi, in an article for The Daily Beast.

The conflict in Syria is a mediated war between Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar, the US and the EU, on the one hand, and Iran, Russia, Hezbollah and the Assad regime - on the other, the author argues.

The bloody Syrian experience served as a deterrent for further uprisings against the current dictators in the Arab world, Parsi states further: few people will want to run the risk of civil war for the sake of political change.

"Time" on the supply of Russian weapons to Syria. Simon Schuster ("Half", USA; source of translation - "InoSMI") writes that in the last two weeks, "the United States and its allies almost on their knees begged Russia to stop supplying weapons to the Syrian government." The journalist drew attention to three meetings with President Vladimir Putin: US Secretary of State John Kerry, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. All of them - and with them for the company Barack Obama, who had previously talked with Putin over the phone - urged the Russian leader to stop arming B. Assad’s “regime”.

But Russia, despite the "flirting", intends to continue selling Damascus C-300. Moreover, the New York Times reported that Russia is supplying Syria with Yakhont anti-ship missiles, which can seriously complicate any attempts by foreign fleets to intervene in what is happening in Syria.

The journalist spoke with a high-ranking Russian diplomat Andrei Klimov, deputy chairman of the international affairs committee of the Russian parliament. According to him, Moscow is being reinsured.

Comrade Klimov, the correspondent writes, argues that C-300 should "just provide the right conditions" for the care talks about Assad. 7 May Kerry and Putin agreed to start these negotiations in the coming weeks at an international summit.

“Simply put, C-300 will be cooled by the desire to attack Syria from the air, if in fact our partners intend to do just that,” while negotiations are being prepared. Russia wants to avoid the mistake that it made in Libya, says Klimov, who visited Syria during the civil war, in order to assess what options Russia has.

To this, Simon Schuster adds a little bit of himself:

“... In 2011, the Kremlin, headed by the relatively liberal protégé of Putin, Dmitry Medvedev, listened much more to the opinion of the international community, which was outraged by the actions of the Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi, who tried to suppress a cruel uprising. The United States and its allies convinced Medvedev not to block the UN resolution against Gaddafi and allow it to be pushed through the UN Security Council. ”


True, from the point of view of Putin, then this resolution was interpreted much wider than expected, the journalist writes. Instead of establishing a no-fly zone over Libya, it opened the door to military intervention. The United States and NATO began to bomb the military columns of Gaddafi, who were moving towards Benghazi with the obvious goal of "cleaning out" its revolutionary population. The murder of Gaddafi "infuriated" Putin. He writes a journalist, he considered it "a brazen violation of the sovereignty of Libya and a betrayal of Russia's readiness to trust the West."

The Russian leader did not forget this disrespect. “What we really don’t want is to make the same mistake as with Libya,” explained Klimov. “Then we thought that this was one thing, but we got a completely different one.”

Attacks on Syrian targets 3 and 5 in May, allegedly by Israeli military aircraft, also pushed Russia to speed up the supply of weapons to Assad, Klimov said. “When we see these bombings in Syria, apparently coming from Israel, we understand that a sovereign government has the right to self-defense,” he argues. - From our point of view, these supplies do not violate any international agreements. At the same time, they will not allow impunity to beat Syria from the air. ”

Mr. Schuster recalls that on Wednesday last week, Senators Robert Menendez and Bob Corker submitted a bill to the US Senate, supported by representatives of both parties, demanding that the Obama administration supply weapons to "a certain part" of the rebel forces in Syria.

“In order to tilt the balance in Syria in favor of the opponents of the Assad regime, we must support the opposition by giving it lethal weapons,” Menendez said in a statement accompanying the bill that the Senate Foreign Relations Committee should consider tomorrow, that is, May 21. “Combined with Russia's readiness to participate in the negotiations on regime change, this will provide us with the best chance of a better outcome.”

Bortnikov: “If we talk about the Russian Federation, then the order of 200 militants are in Syria ...” The course of events in Syria and their possible consequences were discussed on 15 in May in Bishkek by the intelligence services of the CIS countries and some EU countries: Germany, Italy, France and Spain, transmit "Vesti".

The head of the FSB, chairman of the National Anti-Terrorism Committee of the Russian Federation, Alexander Bortnikov, noted that militants are actively involved on the side of the armed opposition, who come to this country from both the Afghan-Pakistani zone and from the countries of the Commonwealth and European states. He said: “This problem after the end of the active phase of the fighting represents an increased danger, especially for the countries of origin. If we talk about the Russian Federation, then the order of 200 militants are in Syria, so for us this process is very important in terms of tracking the movement of militants and taking appropriate response measures. ”

Turkish protests. In Turkey, there are mass protests. About your requirements to the correspondent "Voices of Russia" Amur Hajiyev was told by the protesters.

In Turkey, one of the largest national holidays was celebrated - Ataturk Memorial Day and the festival of youth and sports. History This holiday is as follows: 19 May 1919, the founder of the Turkish Republic, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, bypassing Istanbul, reached the Black Sea port of Samsun and announced a general mobilization. The national liberation war of the Turkish people began. The war was won, and 19 May became a national holiday.

According to eyewitnesses, current events are more of a protest nature than festive.

Chagdash Cengiz, general chairman of the Turkish Youth Union, who is on the Sykhkhie square in the capital’s “Sykhie” square, spoke about the demands of the protesters.

According to him, the number of those present in the square is in the hundreds of thousands of people. About one million people participate in the march to Ataturk’s Mausoleum. There are Kemalists, patriots, representatives of more than forty public organizations, representatives of trade unions and various political parties, such as the People’s Republican Party, the Democratic Left Party, the Workers Party.

Cengiz says that the people demonstrate unity in anti-American sentiment. The Turkish people are opposed to Western plans for Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria.

“... We are against the Western occupation policy, against their current Middle East strategy. We do not want a repetition of the next Reyhanly, where innocent people died as a result of their anti-Syrian policy. For us it is important to preserve the Turkish-Syrian unity, which the US is trying to destroy. ”


Another participant of the march in Ankara, Deputy Secretary General of the Ataturk Thought Society Oner Tanyk, said to the Voice of Russia:

“... If after these actions the people are not heard, we will again go out into the street. From our leadership, we demand adherence to the principles of Ataturk, including the principle of "peace in the country and in the world." We do not want war with either Iraq or Syria. Those who oppose the Assad government today are serving American and Israeli interests. We are for an independent foreign policy of Turkey, for friendship with our neighbors. ”


Iranian resistance to the West will continue. Najme Bezorgmer (Financial Times; source abbr. translation - "Inopressa")

Iran’s chief negotiator for the nuclear issue, Saeed Jalili, who is considered the favorite in the upcoming presidential election, promises to use his experience, if elected, to continue the current course of resistance to Western demands, reports The Financial Times correspondent Najme Bezorgmer.

In an interview with the newspaper, Comrade Jalili stated that he will pursue a policy of “progress, justice and resistance” as president, and also expressed confidence that international sanctions imposed on Iran can be circumvented.

The author of the article believes: “Jalili represents the views of that part of the leadership of the Islamic Republic, which believes that the Western powers will be forced to compromise with Iran only if they face strong resistance.”

The journalist recalls that Jalili, the 47-year-old veteran of the Iran-Iraq war, joined the presidential race as one of the last. His nomination attracted attention both domestically and abroad, and some fundamentalist competitors immediately declared their readiness to withdraw from the election if his candidacy had time to gain popularity.

According to analysts, Jalili’s loyalty to the Islamic Revolution and his firmness in the negotiations on the Iranian nuclear program won the sympathy of Ayatollah Khamenei. The candidate himself claims that he does not enjoy the support of the supreme ruler of Iran and considers the participation in the elections as “his duty”.

Comrade Ahmadinejad will go to Moscow. The Iranian President will take part in the summit of gas exporting countries, which will be held in Moscow on July 1-2, the Iranian ambassador to Russia, Reza Sajadi, said. Iran is ready to allow IAEA observers to Parchin and is awaiting proposals from the Six on the timing of the next round of talks, the diplomat said.

"The summit of gas exporting countries will be held in Moscow on July 1-2," the diplomat quotes "Voice of Russia" with reference to ITAR-TASS. “Iran was invited, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad agreed, said he would come.”

Iran is ready to allow the IAEA observers to Parchin only after the signing of a special Protocol, Sajadi also said. The diplomat recalled that the Parchin facility was already fully inspected by representatives of the IAEA.

“Then we were told that we need to inspect it again,” said the ambassador. “We agreed, but on condition that we sign the Protocol and we write down in it not only the need for an inspection of Parchin, but also all other ambiguities.”

“We showed flexibility,” said Sajjadi. “We suggested: let's sign the Protocol and specify all the charges.” At the same time, the diplomat said that representatives of the IAEA insist on visiting Parchin before signing the Protocol. “This is all a game,” the diplomat said. “We did not see sincerity in the behavior of the IAEA and its leader Yukiya Amano,” he concluded.

Two executions in Tehran. As the "Lenta.ru" with reference to France-Presse, two Iranian citizens were convicted in Tehran who were convicted of spying for foreign countries. One handed over intelligence to Israel, the other to the United States.

Mohammad Heydari and Korush Ahmadi were hanged yesterday. Heydari repeatedly passed secret information on security issues (for money) to Mossad, while Ahmadi provided the CIA with secret information "on various topics."

Tehran accuses Israeli and American intelligence agencies of organizing a spy campaign aimed at undermining Iran’s nuclear program. In the work on Israel, reminds “Lenta”, Iranian citizen Majid Jamali Fashi was convicted, who was convicted for the murder of Iran’s leading nuclear physicist Masood Ali Mohammadi and executed in May last year. A citizen of Amir Mirza Hekmati sentenced to death is in custody in Iran: he was caught in work for the CIA.

Israel: the poorest among the richest. According to the report of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, Israel in the list of developed countries ranked first in terms of ... poverty, reports MIGnews.com.

Every fifth citizen of Israel, according to the OECD, lives in poverty. And in 1995, the poor attributed 13,8% of the population of the Jewish state.

Soon the new members of the “club of the poor” will turn out to be a critical line. Large-scale budget cuts, which can be more confidently spoken of as an almost accomplished fact, will affect at least forty thousand Israeli families. These are the sad predictions of experts of the National Insurance Institute (“Bituah Leumi”).

Murder in Pakistan. In Pakistan, the vice president of the Pakistan Justice Movement Party was killed - a woman who in the last election was the main rival of the winning party of the former Prime Minister of the country. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to BBC News.

Zahra Shahid Hussein was shot dead near his home in Karachi. As the representative of the “Pakistani Justice Movement” said, the woman was leaving the house, intending to go to work, when she was attacked by three men who rode a motorcycle. Zahra Shahid Hussein decided that they want to steal her purse - and handed it to the men. But they shot her twice in the head. The woman died in the ambulance.

The reason for the murder is not yet known.

Korean rockets are flying and falling. North Korea launched a short-range missile from its east coast yesterday. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to France-Presse. This is the fourth launch of this kind, made by the DPRK in the last two days.

Three short-range missiles, the North Korean military launched on Saturday in the same place, on the east coast. All rockets fell in the Sea of ​​Japan.

“We regret that the North is not stopping provocative actions, such as yesterday’s launch of guided missiles,” said a representative of the South Korean unification ministry in this connection.

The type of rockets launched on Saturday and Sunday is unknown.

As transmits Interfax, the South Korean Ministry of Defense reported on Saturday launches: “The DPRK launched two guided missiles this morning and another at noon. Rockets fell in the Sea of ​​Japan. ” "We need to conduct a more detailed analysis, it could be anti-ship missiles of the new modification or KN-02 missiles of the" earth-to-ground "class, an analogue of the Soviet SS-21 (RK" Tochka "), whose range is about 120 km," said the representative departments.

The Ministry of Defense of South Korea also said that the missile launches were made as part of the exercises of the North Korean army. According to the South Korean media, the military of the DPRK could launch a land-sea KN-06 missile, whose range is 120 km.

China is demanding the release of the fishermen. As transmits correspondent RIA "News" Maria Chaplygina, China is demanding the immediate release of Chinese fishermen captured by North Korean pirates, the Fenghuang TV channel reported.

On May 5, a group of armed DPRK representatives seized the leading fishing vessel in Chinese waters, the Lyaopuyu 25222. Pirates demanding a ransom of 600 thousand Yuan (95,2 thousand dollars) took the ship to North Korean waters.

In the media, the news of the seizure came only after the captain of the ship Yu Xuejun wrote about the events in the Weibo microblog. The captain also managed to contact the Chinese Embassy in the DPRK and ask diplomats for help.

According to the captain, the original invaders demanded an amount of 1,2 million yuan (190,5 thousand dollars), but gradually reduced it. According to Yu, he seriously fears for the safety of his crew and does not exclude that supplies and fresh water will run out in the coming days.

The Japanese air force was alarmed: the Russians were spotted in the air. The Russian anti-submarine aircraft IL-38 made a flight along the central part of Honshu from the Sea of ​​Japan on Friday, the website of the Joint Staff of the Ministry of Defense of Japan reported. As transmitted RIA "Novosti" correspondent Ksenia Naka, Japan’s airspace was not violated, but the air defense forces were alerted.

Recently, the emergence of Russian aircraft near Japan has been systematically marked by the Joint Headquarters of the country's self-defense forces, but they do not arouse the increased interest of the media and Japanese politicians. This may reflect the general positive-expectant attitude in society towards Russia after the recent visit to Moscow of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Rahmon will go for another loan to the Middle Kingdom. The President of Tajikistan will visit China with a two-day visit. As a result of the trip, Dushanbe may receive another long-term loan from Beijing. Analysts express concern over Tajikistan’s growing debt to China, writes Galim Faskhutdinov ("Voice of Russia").

It is noted that over the past four years, China has become the main creditor of the Tajik economy. As a result, Dushanbe’s debt to Beijing already amounted to about 900 million dollars: almost 40% of the country's total foreign debt.

China allocates funds for the construction of roads, programs in agriculture and energy projects. Chinese banks provide preferential loans to residents of Tajikistan: a loan term from 10 to 20 years, two percent per annum.

According to the head of the Association of Independent Political Scientists of Tajikistan, Abdugani Mamadazimov, China is pushing out other players from the Tajik market:

“In Tajikistan, Chinese investments are now present on a large scale. If before the Chinese were actively working in Tajikistan in the field of road construction, now they can be seen in the field of civil engineering, in the telecommunications and restaurant business. Russia is still in second place with the Sangtuda-1 hydropower project worth 240 million dollars. But we no longer see other major projects with the participation of Russian capital. Although there is a geological survey work on the search and production of gas. "


A key feature of the financial interaction of Tajikistan and China: Beijing gives Dushanbe money for their companies. The Chinese are building turnkey facilities, which ensures proper use of funds and the absence of corruption. Now the Chinese are building several industrial enterprises near Dushanbe and are engaged in almost all road construction sites in the republic.

Dmitry Popov, an expert at the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies, says that the moment may come when Beijing will begin to put forward its conditions to Dushanbe:

“It is not the volume of debt that is worrying, but its growth rate. From 2009 to 2011, the average is 275 million dollars annually. This is an impressive amount for Tajikistan. Judging by the latest agreements between countries, these rates can only grow. In this connection, there is concern about the lack of guaranteed sources for Tajikistan to cover the debt burden.

Today, one of the schemes that is being discussed is the so-called investment formula in exchange for natural resources. So it was designated by the ambassador of Tajikistan to the People's Republic of China, Rashid Alimov. According to this scheme, some projects are already being implemented in the republic. In particular, this is how Dushanbe CHP is being built. ”


Many experts explain the interest of the PRC to Tajikistan by the geographical position of the republic. Tajikistan is bordered by the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region of the PRC.

The fate of the former warden. As transmits correspondent RIA "News" Semyon Nekhoroshkinarrested two weeks ago by Hans Lipschys, who served in Auschwitz in 1941-45, was an overseer on the railway ramp, where the "selection" of new prisoners was carried out. He faces charges of complicity in the murder of 9515 people, writes the newspaper "Welt am Sonntag", at the disposal of which turned out to be the text of the court order that issued an arrest warrant for the alleged Nazi criminal.

The German agency investigating the crimes of National Socialism, this spring, 50’s death camp overseers went on the trail. In the case of 49, a preliminary investigation is in progress. One of the alleged perpetrators - 93-year-old native of Lithuania, Hans Lipschys - was arrested in early May.

Now the former SS Rottenführer is contained in the hospital compartment of the detention facility. He claims that he worked in a concentration camp only as a cook.

However, for more than three years of service in Auschwitz, he managed to work not only as a cook. His unit participated at least nine times in the selection of newly arrived prisoners on the notorious railway unloading ramp. It was here that doctors and SS officers selected those who were able to work, the rest were sent to gas chambers. In total, out of nine trains with prisoners, which Lipshis followed for selection, 9.515 people were sent to the gas chambers. The service Rottenführer SS carried willingly, adds "Welt am Sonntag".

Now it is French law. "Voice of Russia" with reference to ITAR-TASS and France-Press, reports that the French president signed a law allowing members of sexual minorities to enter into an official marriage. France turned out to be the fourteenth state, allowing homosexuals to officially start a family.

For F. Hollande, the law “Marriage for All” was one of the main election promises. Approaching the first year of the board with a record low rating (25%), the president achieved approval of a scandalous bill in parliament. The law was adopted by the Constitutional Council without amendments.

Hollande warned that he would not tolerate any resistance: "I will constantly check how the law works throughout the country and will not allow its violations." “It’s time to respect the law and the Republic,” Monsieur President added.

Russian courts will take into account France’s adoption of the law on same-sex marriages when considering applications from French citizens for the adoption of children from Russia. This was stated by the Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation on human rights, democracy and the rule of law K. Dolgov.

“Russian legislation, in particular, the Family Code, quite explicitly states that marriage is a union between a man and a woman,” comrade Dolgov reminded. “Of course, this also determines the resolution of all issues related to adoption.”

“We plan to amend the State Duma, which will either contain a total ban on adopting children by same-sex families, or amending the adoption agreement with France,” said Elena Afanasyeva, deputy chairman of the Duma Committee on Labor and Social Policy.

In Georgia, opposed the LGBT. George Dvali (Kommersant) told that on May 17, the hierarchs of the Georgian Orthodox Church, together with thousands of parishioners, stopped an attempt by the Identity organization to hold an action in central Tbilisi in defense of the rights of sex minorities.

“... In the morning, columns of young people in black clothes with church flags and crosses began to approach the former parliament building. At the head of the columns were priests from various Tbilisi churches. They did not conceal that they would use force and would not allow the LGBT community to hold a flash mob in the planned place. Opponents of sexual minorities held posters: "We do not want sodom and gomorrah", "Homosexuality is a genocide of the people", "Down with same-sex marriages". Many came with nettles in their hands, promising to "whip sodomites."


The police rescued members of Identity by evacuating them by bus. The crowd caught up with the bus and threw stones at him. Violence spread across the main streets. As a result of the skirmishes, 12 people, including several policemen, were injured of varying degrees of severity.

Secretary of the National Security Council of Georgia Giga Bokeria called the incident “a disgrace to Georgian statehood” and accused the government of Bidzina Ivanishvili of failing to protect democratic norms.

As the Gazeta.ru, in St. Petersburg on Friday, an LGBT rally was also held, dedicated to the International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia. However, on the Field of Mars, the police stopped the rally after 15 minutes after the start, fearing for the safety of the activists. On the above link to the source you can see the photos.

Putinka banned. The Latvian center of the state language has forbidden to call the village under construction between Riga and Jurmala in honor of the President of Russia. About this DELFI said the head of department Agris Timuska, transmits "Lenta.ru".

We are talking about the eco-settlement of Putinka (which was described in the previous "Mosaic").

According to Latvian laws, the name of the settlement is obliged to approve the State Language Center. This department refused to register the name “Putinka”, as it does not meet the official requirements for toponyms. The head of the center explained that toponyms should “contribute to the preservation of the cultural tradition and the development of the Latvian language”. The official called provocation the decision of the developer to call the village Putinka.

The death of two FBI agents. They died in naval exercises, the channel transmits "RT".

The details of the incident are not disclosed. It is known that tragedy happened in the state of Virginia. Two members of the rapid response team were killed aboard the naval command ship.

Both of the dead were employees of the emergency response team (part of the hostage release unit).

News about Guantanamo. The hunger strike in Guantanamo, which began on February 6, is still ongoing. The authorities were forced to send 140 Navy medical staff in order to control the situation. Murat Kurnaz, a former prisoner of this prison, who was tortured there for four years, was interviewed "Voice of Russia".

His story is his words:

“... For me as a likely terrorist, the American government paid a premium of 2000 dollars. As soon as they found out that I was innocent, and the American government dropped all of its charges, they tried to get in touch with the German government to bring me home. But the German government did not want to allow me to return, and I was forced to remain in Guantanamo for another 4,5 of the year. ”


He was continued to be tortured. The Americans wanted to force the prisoner to sign a confession that he was both al-Qaeda and the Taliban, and also that he fought against terrorists against American forces.

As for Germany, German intelligence officials who interrogated the Guantanamo prisoner said he was innocent and that his return would not cause problems. But this opinion did not affect the position of the urban German politician, who said he did not want to see this man in Germany.

The current hunger strike, according to Kurnaz, is organized due to the fact that prisoners are treated “just terribly.” And they want a fair trial.

Kurnaz is convinced that 90% of prisoners in this prison are innocent people. He is aware of numerous cases, especially in Pakistan, when soldiers and police detained homeless people and sold them to the US government as possible terrorists: for this they were rewarded with a premium of 3000 dollars.

The ceiling is turned on again. According to correspondent ITAR-TASS Dmitry Kirsanov, in the United States again began to act on the state debt ceiling. The ceiling has been restored to a new level - around 16,7 trillion. dollars.

Problems with the maintenance of this debt, as Finance Minister Jacob Liu assured, the federal government is not expected until September.

Good riddance! As transmits ITAR-TASSCIA official Ryan Fogle, convicted of espionage by the FSB, left Moscow yesterday.

The NTV channel showed footage from the Sheremetyevo airport, where the hapless recruiter passed passport control.

    Something is not lucky that the aircraft are scared, but now the third "unidentified" submarine has "drawn" off the coast.
    In my opinion, Russia makes a big mistake when it allows its officials to speak
    Comrade Klimov, the correspondent writes, claims that the S-300 should “just provide the proper conditions” for the negotiations on Assad’s departure

    In modern realities, we (Russia) will lose from the elections in Syria, the enemy has a lot more money, and therefore we must stand on the position "while there is a civil war in the country, heated by third parties, there can be no talk of elections."

        Is Putin really interested in negotiations with bandits about a change of power in Syria?

        Rather, Putin takes time, and perhaps talked with Assadoi about this. Now there is an attack on militants throughout Syria, Assad needs to have time to turn the tide completely by June.
        Although the West has invested a lot of effort and money in defeating Syria, and seeing that the militants are defeated, they can find an excuse to start aggression.
        On the other hand, Ahmadinejad’s arrival in Moscow, which can mean and why now. I believe that Iran can stop the warrior now and act more seriously on the hot pumpkins (heads) of the West and Syria. If Iran announces the beginning of war in the event aggression against Syria begins, and not just declare specifically to stick up for Syria, then the alignment will change significantly. For Israel, death is like blowing up a region on such a scale.

    Here it is precisely for this, and precisely for this reason that no one will intervene there. The assistance to Syria should be clear and open, for a long time it was necessary to move from the phase - we pretend that we help, to the phase - we really help.

          they noticed that in American cinema they simply asked questions, at least an honest survey, in our own case the examiner himself specifically confused people with nonsense with a serious face in front of the camera, it’s clear that people don’t know the story, but there is also some informational doubt ask him just what the most important battle in the second would answer - Stalingrad, but they ask seriously nonsense and even without the right answer. This is called ordinary manipulation, good students from Ostap Bender.

    "Syrian troops have taken Al Qusayr." Great news!

    Look, the Western press woke up, it turns out there are other points of view different from the American ones! They were scared along the path of the ulepka.
    Putin does not need to negotiate with anyone and listen to anyone; he needs to protect Syria and Assad by any means available.

    "Simon Schuster (Time, USA; source of translation - InoSMI") writes that in the past two weeks, "the United States and its allies have almost implored Russia to stop supplying the Syrian government with their knees."

    It’s probably unusual for them to stand on their knees, but where to go then?

    The Turks were very pleased with their performances! More than a million people - Erdogan should think about the situation in the country, and power is easy to lose.

    "According to the report of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, Israel took first place in the list of developed countries in terms of ... poverty," I’m laughing at the nimagu, and they are still vomiting, it would be better if they saved for food))).

    Bortnikov: “If we talk about the Russian Federation, then the order of 200 militants are in Syria ...”
    Our security forces (the FSB in the first place) should really think about the fact that all this abomination can return (and is already returning) to Tatarstan, the Caucasus and other national republics. It's time for the brain to turn on and start working in this direction! Then it will be too late, now the bells are no longer ringing, but the bells are ringing!

    "Comrade Meyssan condemned France for trying to revive colonial politics. France attacked Libya with NATO help, killing more than 160 Libyans under the pretext of" protecting civilians. "Now she is trying to repeat the same scenario in the SAR."
    And what else can you expect from the “leaky” president, he is like a girl - all on emotions and posing .. posing)).

    Republican senator Bob Corker called the supply a hindrance to the political transfer of power and said: "There is an urgent need to increase US assistance to moderate opposition forces capable of leading Syria after Assad."


    A very "WISE" revelation from BOB .. wink

    “Russia offers protection to the despot ruler and protects the bankrupt regime,” said Democratic Senator Robert Menendez.


    Well, we’ll see who the bankrupt really is ... winked

    "Time" on the supply of Russian weapons to Syria. Simon Schuster (Time, USA; source of translation - InoSMI) writes that over the past two weeks, "the United States and its allies have almost implored Russia to stop supplying the Syrian government with their knees." The journalist drew attention to three meetings with President Vladimir Putin: US Secretary of State John Kerry, British Prime Minister David Cameron and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. All of them — and with them for the company Barack Obama, who had previously talked with Putin over the telephone — urged the Russian leader to stop arming the “regime” of B. Assad.

    But Russia, despite the "flirting", intends to continue selling Damascus C-300. Moreover, the New York Times reported that Russia is supplying Syria with Yakhont anti-ship missiles, which can seriously complicate any attempts by foreign fleets to intervene in what is happening in Syria.

    “Simply put, C-300 will be cooled by the desire to attack Syria from the air, if in fact our partners intend to do just that,” while negotiations are being prepared. Russia wants to avoid the mistake that it made in Libya, says Klimov, who visited Syria during the civil war, in order to assess what options Russia has.


    I will answer with the words of the fellow countryman of our "BLADED FRIENDS" .. Samuel Colt:
    "God made people strong and weak, and Mr. Colt equalized their chances."
    Especially in our gene. headquarters, they confirmed that they did not exclude the possibility of helping our armed forces.
    That damn it like cockroaches, only you get dichlorvos or paws to the top or scatter .. wink
    But one thing I can say, Libya it was only flowers, if Russia, China, India get involved, it will be very hot there.

    Expected Consequences:
    1) Israel, after using it as a condom, will cease to exist. there will be a massacre. The Arabs will mow them all down.
    2) Turkey, if they do not change their minds or change their government, after the war, Syria and Iran will be divided among themselves, and will be repaired.
    3) There will be an uprising in Libya, they will strangle all the Franks.
    4) Kuwait, Iraq, Egypt will change its government.
    5) The remnants of the NATO bases and troops that did not have time to evacuate will be erased, to put it mildly.
    6) America will lose control of oil reserves and, as a rule, further collapse of economic potential. Then they will become more accommodating.

In the same gang with the USA, the EU, the Saudis and Qatar, you can make good money on the Syrian gas fields destroyed by the war and increase the welfare of your Khaimchiks and exist as a state even some time.

    It is curious that Assad’s army is successfully destroying their own pets, Hezbollah fighters, whom Assad himself is arming. Where is the logic and gratitude to the owner from whose hand Hezbollah fed and feeds?
    Again, the old story is repeated with the Palestinians, who, after the 6 day war of the 67 year, were sheltered by Jordan, and the guests decided to overthrow the hospitable king and even began to overthrow him. And they would have been overthrown if the King of Jordan had not cruelly slaughtered thousands of “grateful” guests and threatened their leaders that the process of “cutting heads” would continue until the number of Palestinians in Jordan was reduced to zero. And he would have reduced it if the guests had not thought better of it and had not calmed down. And I did not hear anywhere the statements of the UN and other "peacekeeping" organizations about the "fascist nature of the bloody Jordanian regime."
    But in Lebanon, such an attempted coup succeeded Nasrallah in full, thanks to the help of Syria and Iran. And now what? Which of them will shorten whom? And how would Russia not find itself in an "interesting position" supporting its Iranian and Syrian friends.
    Can it be that the dock in Tartus and the very modest grandmothers received from Syria for C300 and other pieces of iron are worth the international isolation of Russia and the lives of its citizens, who at any moment may be hit by “peacekeepers” in Syria. After all, all this has happened more than once. And each time it ended in negative results for the USSR, supporting from the last forces their Arab friends who threw him at the first opportunity. And they threw hundreds of millions, if not billions of dollars and rubles that were useful to the USSR.

        Fights in Syria: Hezbollah suffered heavy losses

        publication time: 06: 33
        last update: 11: 01





        Sources in the Syrian opposition claim that at least 19 people were killed in a single day on May 115 during the fighting of the opposition’s armed forces against the regular army and Hezbollah.

        These sources also report that among the killed at least 40 militants of the Lebanese Shiite "Party of Allah." Al-Arabiya TV channel reports that at least 19 Hezbollah militants died in Syria on May 20. The same channel reports that dozens of Hezbollah fighters were injured and evacuated to hospitals in Lebanon.

        It was announced that during the fighting in the city of Qusayr (southwest of Homs, near the border with Lebanon), a high-ranking Hezbollah field commander Fadi al-Jazar, who participated in the battle on the side of government forces, was killed. The fighting for Kusayr continues.

        On the morning of May 20, Hezbollah confirmed the death of 20 and the wounding of 60 of its militants in Syria, but does not comment on the death of al-Jazar. According to Al-Arabiya, information about his death appeared shortly after it became known that the Syrian military had lost contact with the al-Jazar group operating in Kusayr.

            from my point of view, the party, or if you want, the organization of hezbolah is part of the Lebanese government and very significantly especially after the 2006 conflict. But that’s what the problem is now I remember Israel announced to the new government after the Lebanese elections. Since hezbolis is officially a member of the Lebanese government, the response to hezbollah aggression will be tantamount to an invasion at the state level. and this answer is completely different. The same with Syria. will be perceived as an invasion of Lebanon. not hezbola. but this is my point of view

    Al-Ahram: Suez Canal is closed - armored vehicles are being transported to Sinai

    publication time: 13: 59
    last update: 13: 59



    The Egyptian army continues to build up forces before the counter-terrorist operation in the north of the Sinai Peninsula. Armored vehicles cross the Suez Canal. The newspaper Al-Ahram writes that, due to the transfer of troops, navigation on one of the busiest waterways in the world was suspended.

    The publication cites a senior military source, reporting that the patience of the authorities has come to an end. According to Reuters, earlier Egyptian President Muhammad Mursi met with the command of the Egyptian army and assured the generals that he would not negotiate with the terrorists.

    Recall that last week three soldiers and four police officers were abducted in the north of the peninsula. On May 19, the abductors published a video with the abductees. The hostages called on the head of state to fulfill the demands of the abductors and exchange them for "Bedouin activists" who are being held in Egyptian prisons.

    The abducted were blindfolded, and their hands were tied over their heads. “Do something already, I can’t stand the torture anymore,” one of them called on the president. Another was reminded of Benjamin Netanyahu's exchange of Palestinian prisoners for Gilad Shalit.

    It should be noted that the governor of the North Sinai province Abed-Fatah Kharhur actually disavowed the words of the head of state. He stated that authorities turned to the elders of the Bedouin tribes to secure the release of soldiers and police.

    In the early morning hours of May 20, armed truck terrorists broke into a military base located in Al Ahrash in the north of the Sinai Peninsula. After a shootout with soldiers, the militants retreated. There were no injuries.

    According to the peace treaty between Israel and Egypt, the use of armored vehicles on the Sinai Peninsula requires the consent of Israel. The editors of NEWSru.co.il contacted the press service of the Ministry of Defense to find out if it was received. No response was received at the time of publication.

    What do you want to say, but we, with unkindness, fulfilled our plan for Syria in full. The country is in complete ruin, the borders are full of holes, a bunch of frostbitten Islamists. Do not forget that if the jackals hypothetically lag behind Syria, many thousands of the same military will find themselves in the grip of a variety of syndromes and disappointments. And the return of the refugees will turn into a solid fireworks of chaos. The horror is that restoration of the country is possible only in two ways: 1) Dictatorship and terror, 2) Global financial injections. For the first thing that Western magazines would not talk about Assad, he will not go. And the second is possible only with the help of China and Russia, and in my opinion, the BRICS could be included in this process, which would ultimately declare itself as a serious geopolitical organization.

    Dear minusculers. Really you want to intimidate me with your minuses. In vain hope. I always write what I think and what I am deeply convinced of, even if my thoughts do not coincide with the general direction of the party that is currently ruling nowhere and with the thoughts of the barely thinking "cheers of patriots" of all stripes and shades. And what I know about the many "Arab" friends of the USSR / Russia allows me to draw certain conclusions about the sincerity and disinterestedness of their "friendship." These "friends" have always been guided and continue to be guided by one fundamental principle: "whoever pays us more, we also dance with." And only enthusiastic warriors who have never seen a fig in this life or have seen through the pink glasses of the Political Question can admire such friendship and the ability of Russian ships to stand on a barrel or to the pier of the Tartu landing stage. The base of the Navy is not a misunderstanding even with the greatest imagination. And most importantly, the use of this "base" for Russia is absolute zero, if not minus. Not in vain, after all, Russian sailors began to quietly probe the possibilities of using the port in Eilat (Israel) to replenish water, fuel and other consumables. Those. there are two politicians. One, loud, for the "Russian" banderlogs, who get the idea of ​​a deadly threat to the world emanating from the "s" and the "Zionist fascists" (the definition is what, it’s just lepid), and the other, quiet, for a very limited circle of Russians cream ", for which it’s all the same with whom to be friends, if only the grandmother would drip into their personal pocket and Schaub is quiet here.
