Meeting at the Pentagon. As transmits RIA News", Pentagon chief Chuck Hagel and Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev yesterday at the meeting discussed issues of missile defense and the crisis in Syria. This was reported to journalists by the press secretary of the Pentagon, George Little.
According to him, after meeting with Nikolai Patrushev, Hagel intends to continue the dialogue in the field of security with the Russian leaders.
The United States decided to arm the Syrian "opposition." Supply authorization bill weapons for the Syrian opposition, received approval from the Foreign Affairs Committee (also called the Foreign Relations Committee. - O. Ch.) of the US Senate. In support of the majority of members of the committee voted, reports correspondent ITAR-TASS Andrey Surzhansky.
A statement by one of the authors of the bill, Senator Robert Menendez, states: “The situation in Syria is critical for the Syrians, for the region, and for American efforts to combat extremism. It is time to act and turn the tide in favor of the opposition. ”
The bill was called the "Act in support of the transition in Syria." It provides for the provision of military assistance to "the forces of the Syrian armed opposition."
Rebel groups that "meet certain criteria in the field of human rights, the fight against terrorism and non-proliferation" will be able to count on American aid. Deliveries of “defensive” anti-aircraft complexes, which, according to the authors of the draft law, will allegedly be carried out with “strict restrictions”, are not excluded.
In parallel, the bill provides for the introduction of sanctions against persons convicted of selling weapons, military equipment and the supply of petroleum products to the “regime” of Assad.
But that's not all.
The document proposes to create a "transition fund" in the amount of 250 million dollars. From it is planned to finance the activities of the future transitional government of Syria.
Now it is up to the Senate to consider the entire bill.
"Lenta.ru" on this subject writes the following. According to The Wall Street Journal, fifteen members of the committee voted for the adoption of a bill authorizing the supply of weapons to Syria; among them were both democrats and republicans. Only three opposed.
The bill was proposed by Democrat Robert Menendez, head of the international affairs committee, and Republican senator Bob Corker.
The document allows the United States to supply weapons to the units of the Syrian Free Army and other opponents of Assad, who are "properly tested and share common values and interests with the United States." In particular, according to The Washington Times, the alleged recipients of weapons should not adhere to the "terrorist and extremist ideology."
Earlier, recalls Lenta, the United States did not officially help the Syrian rebels with weapons and ammunition, although the media reported that the CIA provides logistic support to arms suppliers from other countries. Obama opposed the supply of weapons to the Syrian rebels, despite the fact that many members of the government were in favor of this measure, including CIA head David Petraeus (the former) and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (the former).
Armed conflict between supporters and opponents of the Syrian President has continued in Syria since March 2011. During this time, according to various sources, killed from 70 to 120 thousand people.
Statement of the Supreme Command of the Armed Forces SAR. The Supreme Command of the SAR Armed Forces stated that on 21 on May 1 in the morning, the army destroyed an Israeli vehicle that crossed the ceasefire line and was heading towards the village of Bir-Ajam in the liberated territory of the Syrian Golan, where armed groups are located, reports SANA.
The SAR High Command confirmed that the blatant Israeli aggression once again demonstrates the involvement of the Zionists in the Syrian events and their direct connection with the militants. "
Provocations of this kind, SANA notes, are aimed at raising the morale of the militants, which fell after defeats in the area of the city of Al-Xayr.
Summary of military operations in Syria: May 21. In the course of the ongoing operation in the central and northern part of the city of Al-Xayr, servicemen destroyed and wounded many militants and destroyed the underground tunnels they used, reports SANA.
Dozens of IEDs laid down on roads, in residential buildings and state institutions were neutralized, large batches of weapons and ammunition were destroyed.
In the vicinity of Al-Ksayr, the servicemen repulsed an attempt by militants to penetrate Lebanese territory.
Fleeing, armed groups attempted to break into areas of As-Sarkhania, Git, Buvayd, north of Al-Ksayra, but were destroyed.
After establishing full security in the eastern and western parts of Al-Kseira, as well as near the city halls, the Cultural Center, the church and the Al Gheit district, the stripping of the northern and southern parts of the city continues.
In the province of Idleb in Sermin, during a special operation, bases and concentrations of terrorists were destroyed, as well as a warehouse with weapons and ammunition.
In the province of Daraa in the village of Bosra Al-Harir, the army team conducted a special operation to eliminate the bases of terrorists from Dzhebhat al-Nusra, destroying a large number of militants with weapons and equipment.
On the significance of the operation in Al-Ksayra. The Iranian newspaper "Kihan" confirmed that the successes of the Syrian army in the Al-Ksayr area, which broke the back of the groups of "Dzhebhat en Nusra", change the balance of power both within the country and in the regional and international arenas, writes SANA.
If we take into account the geostrategic position of the Al-Kseyr district, which served as a training base and "importer" of militants in the provinces of Damascus, Homs, Hama, as well as in the Mediterranean coastal region, the meaning of the city becomes clear.
The establishment of army control over this area plunged Western countries and the USA into panic.
Two hours after taking control of most of Al-Kseira, the newspaper said, Israeli Prime Minister B. Netanyahu, shocked by this victory, “with a bewildered face” announced that Israel is ready for any Syrian scenario and will act strictly in order to guarantee its security.
"Clear Signal". Corr. ITAR-TASS Andrey Surzhansky reports that on Tuesday a new bill was introduced in the US Congress, toughening sanctions against Iran. The authors of the document, entitled "The act of embargo on Iranian exports, were made by Republican senators Mark Kirk and John Cornyn.
This bill provides for a ban on "the acquisition of goods and services from any company owned or controlled by the Iranian government." The document introduces a ban on "all transactions carried out in the interests of these companies for the purpose of exporting (goods) from Iran", as well as "blocking all assets of companies" associated with the Iranian government, and prohibits the provision of insurance services to them.
The main purpose of the act is to increase the pressure on the Iranian leadership in order to force it to fulfill its international obligations and to abandon attempts to acquire nuclear weapons. "Foreign countries and companies will be faced with a choice - either they will stop doing business with the Iranian government, or they will stop doing business in the United States," said Senator Cornyn.
Senator Kirk, in turn, said: "It's time to send a clear signal to all countries of the world - there is no such thing as legal trade with the Iranian government."
And on the subject of future sanctions. As transmits "Voice of Russia"The authorities, through additional unilateral sanctions, want to ban the sale of gold and other precious metals to private and state-owned companies in Iran, as well as to individuals who have Iranian citizenship. This was stated by Deputy Secretary of the Treasury David Cohen. According to the US official, the date of commencement of the sanctions is 1 July.
Iran has recently begun to actively buy gold on the foreign market. His Iranians are supposedly used instead of currency for settlements in the foreign market.
In 2012, the Turkish-Iranian trade for the first time in decades was in favor of Turkey. At the end of the year, the volume of Turkish exports to Iran amounted to 9,9 billion dollars, and about 7 billion of them - the export of precious stones and metals. In 2011 and 2010, Turkey’s exports to Iran did not exceed 3,5 billion dollars.
Turkish business is not ready to abandon the benefits of trade with its eastern neighbor. Chairman of the Union of Exporters of Jewelry and Precious Metals of Turkey, Ayhan Guner, said to the Voice of Russia:
According to Ayhan Güner, Washington’s calls to stop the supply of gold are unjustified. And even if the Turkish government listens to them, Turkish entrepreneurs will still find ways to develop their trade with Iran.
Analysts suggest that in 2013, the golden Iranian-Turkish record last year will be updated.

The fate of the Turkmen "double" citizens. As Elena Chernenko tells (Kommersant), negotiations between the Russian Federation and Turkmenistan on the problem of holders of dual citizenship, which Ashgabat forces to abandon one of the passports, are almost deadlocked.
Unnamed sources of “Kommersant”, close to the Russian-Turkmen intergovernmental commission, described the negotiations on the situation around the bipatrides as “extremely complex”. But 10 July expires, the deadline for which citizens of Turkmenistan are allowed to travel abroad on the old-style passports. A new passport can be obtained only by presenting a certificate of the absence of dual citizenship.
The number of bipatrides is 134 thousand, of whom about 50 thousand live permanently in Turkmenistan. Most of them do not want to refuse a Russian passport. In 1999, Ashgabat withdrew from the agreement on visa-free movement of CIS citizens throughout the Commonwealth, but holders of dual citizenship bypassed this rule by entering the CIS countries on a Russian passport.
Now, with the exchange of passports, the authorities of Turkmenistan want to finally close the existing issue. Ashgabat does not agree with the Russian estimate of the number of bipatrides, recognizing as such only those who received dual citizenship before 2003 of the year (about 23 in total, thou. People).
Moscow offers the following. If the authorities of Turkmenistan provide assurances that everyone from the 134 number of thousands of bipatrides will receive Turkmen passports of a new type, the Russian authorities will re-submit to the State Duma a protocol on the termination of the 1993 agreement of the year. That is, Ashgabat will ensure the rights of existing bipatrides, and Moscow will take measures to ensure that their number does not grow. There is an alternative option: to facilitate the visa regime between the Russian Federation and Turkmenistan.
But Ashgabat, according to the interlocutors of “Kommersant”, stands its ground. They do not exclude that for 23 thousands of people will be relaxed, and they don’t want to discuss the rest.
Belarusians and Russians refused to immortality. A sociological study of the Zerkalo-Info Center, conducted in Belarus, showed that people are satisfied with their natural lifespan. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to the "diary".
Citizens were asked to answer the question: “How long would you like to live, maintaining youth and health?” 59 percent of respondents agree to live as much as they are allowed by nature. Such a response, as noted, was mainly given by people older than 40 who had a basic education.
22% of respondents expressed a desire to live "several times longer than people live now." And only ten percent want to live "indefinitely, until immortality."

A total of three thousand respondents were surveyed older than 18 years. The error of representativeness does not exceed 0,6%.
Last year, reminds "Lenta", a similar study was conducted in Russia - "Levada Center". With regard to their attitude towards immortality, Russians were divided in roughly the same proportions as the Belarusians.
The main anti-American and the enemy of democracy. About him in an editorial Washington Post (source abbr. translation - "Inopressa").
Russian President Vladimir Putin, the article says, does not hide his goals and methods, including dislike of democracy and rude anti-Americanism.
The latest tricks of the FSB are the detention and expulsion of Ryan Fogl, the disclosure of the name of the head of the CIA station in Moscow, an attempt to recruit a former official of the US Department of Justice - fragments of a general drawing, the editorial staff said. “To see the direction of movement, a compass is not needed,” reporters replied ironically, hinting at the equipment found during the arrest of the American spy.
The editorial office believes that the Obama administration does not notice all this. The Kremlin responds with insults and provocations to the White House’s requests for cooperation between the security services of the two countries, the newspaper is outraged, and when Washington draws Putin to one of the main peacekeepers in the Syrian conflict, he supplies the latest missiles to the dictator!
Historical visit. Myanmar President Thein Sein paid a visit to the United States - the first in the last 47 years. Washington intends to consolidate its position in one of the key countries in the region, especially given the fact that China has not yet achieved total domination there, writes Pavel Tarasenko (Kommersant).
During the trip, the leader of Myanmar was commended for the ongoing democratic reforms. US President Barack Obama urged Myanmar to follow the path that will allow the country to become "not only with a successful democracy, but also with a booming economy."
During the visit of Thein Sein to the United States, a framework agreement on the development of trade and investment was signed, and by the end of the year, a number of categories of goods from Myanmar could be granted duty-free access to American markets.
Relations between the United States and Myanmar became warmer after the military junta ceded power to a civilian government following the parliamentary elections in November 2010. The EU and the United States lifted most of the sanctions against Myanmar. At the beginning of 2012, diplomatic relations between Washington and Naypyidaw were restored, and in November Barack Obama visited a country that embarked on the path of democracy.
Today, the main factor of concern to the United States associated with Myanmar is the persecution by local Buddhists of the Muslims of the Rohingya people living in Rakhine State. Over the past year, ethnic clashes have killed 192 people, more than 140 thousand have lost their homes and became refugees.
Experts explain the absence of harsh criticism from the West by the geopolitical significance of Myanmar, located between India and China. PIR Center President Vladimir Orlov explained to “Kommersant”:
Task from comrade Kim. As transmits correspondent ITAR-TASS Vasily Golovnin, Special Representative Kim Jong-un, Chief of the Main Political Directorate of the Korean People’s Army Choi Ryong He, traveled by plane to Beijing. This was reported by TsTAK.
The Chief of the Political Directorate of the KPA plays an important role in the Pyongyang hierarchy. He stands in it, according to some estimates, above the Minister of National Armed Forces.
Observers in Tokyo believe that the special representative may discuss the visit of the DPRK leader to China, who has not yet visited Beijing as the country's top leader.
Comrade Kim will get his way. South Korea intends to offer the DPRK humanitarian assistance in the event of a resumption of dialogue between the two countries. This was reported by the South Korean agency "Yonhap", which quotes the representative of the administration of the President of the Republic of Korea, Zhu Chol Ki, reports correspondent ITAR-TASS Yaroslav Makarov.
Zhu Chol Ki explained: "We intend to send the DPRK a number of proposals in the event that the dialogue resumes." He stressed that the policy of Seoul is mainly aimed at solving the nuclear program of the DPRK: “By progress in this matter, we understand the North’s refusal of its nuclear arsenal.”
Japan decided to talk to the DPRK. As the correspondent RIA "News" Ksenia NakaYosychide Suga, Secretary General of the Government of Japan, officially confirmed that the Japanese government is considering the possibility of resuming intergovernmental negotiations with the DPRK.
“Prime Minister Shinzo Abe expressed his desire to do everything to solve the problem of Japanese citizens held in the DPRK. We are looking for any opportunities for negotiations in this direction, ”the government’s speaker Suga said at a press conference today.
Suga left the answer to the question about the timing of the possible resumption of intergovernmental negotiations.
Tokyo insists that the North Korean intelligence services have kidnapped 17 Japanese citizens. North Korea recognized only 13 facts of abduction. Five hostages were able to return to Japan following the visit of former Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi to the DPRK in 2002 and 2004. The remaining eight people, according to the North Korean side, died. However, Japan considers the evidence of the death to be inconclusive and continues to demand the release of all hostages, a correspondent reminds. RIA News".
What did USAID do in Bolivia? Bolivian President Evo Morales said that the US Agency for International Development funded "demonstrations to conspire against democracy," which was the reason for the recent ban on his activities in the country. This was reported by the state news agency "ABI", transmits correspondent ITAR-TASS Dmitry Fominykh.
Comrade Morales noted that the Agency for International Development did not provide assistance to the people of Bolivia, but, on the contrary, "deprived its organization of peasants and indigenous Indian peoples."

A list of American military rapists and adulterers was added to the brigadier general. Brigadier General of the US Army Brian Roberts has been removed from service due to treason against his wife. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to NMC News.
Mr. Roberts was part of the leadership of the Fort Jackson (South Carolina) military base, through which about a third of all women entering the US Army pass. The general is accused of having a close relationship with an unnamed woman. Roberts was also accused of injuring her: the general broke her lip during an altercation.
According to USA Today, a representative of the US Army noted that the Roberts case is not related to violence or sexual harassment.

What is brewing in America? In Nashua, New Hampshire, locals saw armored personnel carriers patrolling the streets of their usually peaceful city, said blogger Pamela Rai Schuffert. She receives numerous phone calls from West Virginia, Florida and Georgia about landing military transport planes in many cities in the country. Is America preparing for a military operation within its borders? This was told Artem Tikhomirov ("Voice of Russia").

And Pamela Rai Schuffert asserts that she received a lot of calls from West Virginia, Jacksonville and Camp Atterbury and reported unusually heavy air traffic in the area. People said they saw huge military transport planes (probably C130 and C17), which landed on local military bases.
“I also received a call from several top-ranking police officers (militia) with the highest rank with data confirming that the soldiers of the UN units are flying to Indiana on 130 and C17 aircraft, that they are issued tags with the names and ranks of the US military, which are distributed to the Department Internal Security is led by special forces raids conducted by the United States Internal Revenue Service in Texas, Florida, Mississippi, and Georgia, ”indicates Schuffert.
Schuffert writes that when the soldiers ask the military commanders about the arrivals, they are told: "What you saw is not what you thought."
One can only guess, says the correspondent. “Voices of Russia”, why foreign troops are delivered by air and take armed equipment to the streets.
Schuffert suggests that foreign units and military equipment may soon be used in accordance with the law on martial law in the United States:
