Grandmother said in two. As they say "Vesti", The US Congress will consider a bill banning the White House to arm the Syrian opposition. With such an initiative made a group of senators. The document does not allow the Pentagon, the CIA and other departments to finance military operations in the Arab Republic, but its humanitarian aid does not apply.
Analysts believe that the project is unlikely to be approved: after a week ago, Obama actually approved the delivery of small weapons and ammunition. Moreover, this project is now under consideration by the US Congress.
Who will arm the Americans. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Russia is convinced that Dzhebhat al-Nusra will receive Western weapons if it is delivered to Syria. Reports about it SANA.
The minister confirmed that Russia does not want to repeat the Iraq scenario in Syria, pointing out that the Syrian leadership approved the outcome of the G8 meeting and announced its participation in the upcoming international conference in Geneva.
About the "World Union of Muslim Ulema". The SAR Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent three messages: to the Chairman of the UN Security Council, the UN Secretary General and the Counter-Terrorism Committee of the UN Security Council, established in accordance with the 1373 resolution of 2001, writes SANA.
The messages say that since the beginning of the crisis in Syria and for more than two years, the chairman of the so-called "World Union of Muslim Ulema" Yusef al-Qaradawi and a group of ulama and sheikhs, such as Abdel-Aziz Abdullah Al-Sheikh and Muhammad Al-Arifi Saudi Arabia, Safwat Hijazi and Muhammad Hassan from Egypt, Shafi Sultan Al-Ajami from Kuwait, constantly issued fatwas and made takfiristic statements provoking terrorism. They supported those involved in criminal activities, contrary to the principles of faith and humanism, the norms of international law and UN resolutions.
These figures serve al-Qaeda and its associated takfirist organizations operating in the territory of the SAR. The fatwas of these extremist sheikhs are political in nature, disguised as a religious mask. Behind them are Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, as well as some Western countries, reports SANA.
In the message, the Foreign Ministry also noted that during the Friday sermon 31 in May, as in his other sermons in Doha, Al-Qaradawi made provocative statements calling for murder, hatred, extremism and jihad. He described the representatives of one of the confessions in Syria as "more infidel than the Jews and Christians."
In order to provoke al-Qaradawi, along with several ulamas, he convened a conference in Cairo on 12 and 13 in June to discuss the situation in Syria. Its members made extremist statements and opposed representatives of other faiths. Al-Qaradawi again declared the representatives of one of the denominations that were spread in the Middle East to be “infidels” and called for combating them. Al-Qaradawi called for the killings, declaring them lawful.
Muhammad Al-Arifi called for the preparation and arming of the “mojaheds” to fight Syria.
The SAR Ministry of Foreign Affairs noted that the final resolution of the conference in Cairo calls for "jihad", financing and arming militants operating in Syria. This in itself means recruiting terrorists from all over the world to send them to the SAR on the basis of takfiristic, Salafi and Wahhabi ideas. Militants are fulfilling the plans of some Western countries and the region, in particular, Qatar, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, to destroy Syria with bloody methods and to sow discord between the Syrians.
The messages say that the World Union of Muslim Ulama was founded in July 2004 in Dublin, and in 2012 its headquarters was moved to Qatar. Through the efforts of some of the sheikhs, he became the main source of provocations, terrorism, hatred and extremism, began to finance and recruit terrorists, including Al-Qaida.
Syria again warns against the danger of the spread of extremism, takfirist ideas, provocations and murders, the article says Sana.
El Quseir has become a ghost town. For weeks, the fighting for El Quseir between the Syrian army and the rebels turned it into a ghost town. This was stated to journalists by the UN Deputy Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs Valerie Amos, who took part yesterday in a private meeting in the Security Council of the world organization, reports from the UN correspondent ITAR-TASS Oleg Zelenin.
Amos said: “The Joint Inspection Mission of the United Nations and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent received permission to visit El Quseir on June 15, and what they saw was essentially a ghost town. Weeks of fierce fighting and shelling left the city almost completely destroyed. ”
The Deputy Secretary General confirmed the information that the opposition resorted to the tactics of siege of cities, forcing them to starve. As stated in a recent letter to the Security Council by the Permanent Representative of Syria to the UN, Bashar Jafari, over 60 thousands of residents of the villages of Nobol and Al-Zahra in the vicinity of Aleppo and the Alfoa settlement near Idlib live for nine months in a “blockade imposed by armed terrorist groups”. The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the diplomat writes, “ignored repeated requests” of Damascus for the delivery of aid to these localities.
“We do receive reports of a sort of siege of cities in some parts of the country, as a result of which people lose access to food, medicine and other essential goods,” Amos said.
She left the answer to the question why the requests of the Syrian authorities for the delivery of aid to the above besieged cities remain unanswered.
Methods of builders of democracy. Syrian militants from Dzhebhat al-Nusra on Wednesday executed 15-year-old teenager Talaa Suleiman, avenging in this way for the death of a Saudi mercenary, reported "Vesti" with reference to ITAR-TASS. The massacre took place in Deir ez-Zor.
As Vesti reminds, 10 June militants from the same organization shot a teenager in Aleppo in front of their parents, accusing him of blasphemy. However, eyewitnesses claim that the militants became angry because 15-year-old street vendor Mohammed Kataa refused to treat the militants for free.
As Anna Dymova writes ("ANNA News"), in Deir ez-Zor, the Dzhebhat an-Nusra militants took a young couple from a city park - a boy and a girl, who were sitting on a bench. Sitting in public was interpreted as violating Sharia law.
The young man was beaten with sticks.
Palestinian retirement. Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah submitted his resignation. This is reported by sources in the government of the PA, writes MIGnews.com.
Hamdallah was nominated for this post by Mahmoud Abbas 3 Jun. 6 Jun. Former university rector Rami Hamdallah formed a new Palestinian government.
As a senior official in the PA government told Ynet, the new prime minister decided to resign after he had differences with his two deputies, Mahmad Mustafa and Ziyad Abu Amr. After the dispute, the irritated Hamdalla left the administrative building on his own car, not on the service one.
Turkish lessons. The government of the German federal state of Baden-Württemberg decided to introduce Turkish as a foreign language in gymnasiums, writes "Lenta.ru" with reference to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. The experiment will be conducted in several schools in Mannheim and Stuttgart from 2015.
Schoolchildren will be able to choose Turkish as a second or third foreign language from the eighth grade, notes the Stuttgarter Zeitung. At the moment, students are offered to study Russian, Italian or Spanish as a second or third foreign language.
The experiment will cost every school 100 thousands of euros per year.
The ultimate goal of the initiative is to bring Turkish immigrants to gymnasiums. So far they make up only 12% students. Moreover, half of the children from German families go to the gymnasium. In the German system of secondary education, a certificate of successful completion of the gymnasium gives the right to enter the university.
"Tape" reminds that in the south-west of Germany there live about 400 thousand people of Turkish origin. Baden-Württemberg is the second federal land after North Rhine-Westphalia with the maximum number of immigrant families.
Latvian ban on the Soviet. The Latvian Saeima passed a bill in the third and final reading, tightening the ban on the use of Soviet and Nazi symbols. It will take effect after being signed by the president. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to Mixnews.
According to DELFI, the document was supported by 56 deputies from 100. Representatives of the ruling political forces voted for him (the Unity bloc, the Reform Party, as well as the nationalist bloc), as well as representatives of the Green Union and the peasants and a number of parliamentarians.
The flag, the coat of arms and anthem of the USSR, as well as the corresponding symbols of the Latvian SSR, the sickle, the hammer and the five-pointed star, as well as the Nazi swastika, were included in the list of prohibited symbols.
The bill was prepared by the deputy Andrei Yudin from the ruling Unity bloc. The author argued that the initiative is directed against the spread of radical attitudes and a split in society.
The deputy promised that the Soviet orders, which are worn by veterans, will not affect the ban. “We have no right to touch veterans at all. These are their awards. If someone else takes a medal or some kind of reward and glorifies the regime and uses these items, there will be some responsibility, ”he said.
The Russian State Duma has criticized the decision of the Sejm. According to "Lenta.ru" With reference to ITAR-TASS, Leonid Slutsky, head of the Duma Committee on CIS Affairs and Relations with Compatriots, called the equation of symbols of the former USSR and Nazi Germany blasphemy.
Slutsky emphasized that the new edition of the ban applies to celebratory and memorable events, including those dedicated to Victory Day. According to the parliamentarian, this is “the violation of the memory of those who fell in the fight against fascism and the infringement and discrimination of the rights of veterans of the Second World War, of whom not many were left alive”. Slutsky warned that Russia could complain to the Latvian authorities in PACE and other international institutions.
Polish resolution. The Senate of Poland adopted a resolution on the 70 anniversary of the Volyn Massacre - the ethnic conflict of the 1943 year, which resulted in the mass extermination of the Polish population in Volyn. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with links to "New Region" and "Radio Liberty."
The events of 70 years ago in the resolution are called "ethnic cleansing with signs of genocide." It notes that the responsibility for the destruction of the Poles lies with the representatives of the OUN / UPA (Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists / Ukrainian Insurgent Army).
The victims of Bandera, as stated in the resolution, were about a hundred thousand Poles.
“Poles are seeking reconciliation and friendship with Ukrainians,” the authors of the resolution note. “However, real reconciliation can only be built on the truth and joint condemnation of a crime.”
Denounce failed. The deputies of the Verkhovna Rada did not support the initiative of the opposition to denounce the Russian-Ukrainian agreement on the extension of the Black Sea fleet in Crimea after 2017, the channel transmits "RT".
The bill supported the 152 parliamentarian with the necessary minimum of 226 votes, UNIAN reports. Thus, the signing and ratification of the treaty between Kiev and Moscow are recognized as legitimate and in the interests of the country.
Representatives of the Communist Party of Ukraine, the Party of Regions and some extra-fractional deputies spoke against denunciation.
Georgian caches. As Vasiliy Matua tells ("Vesti"), on charges of torture in Georgia detained nine employees of the Interior Ministry and the Ministry of Defense. Bullying people officials filmed on camera; the records were kept in the cache, which was discovered this week.
The Interior Ministry announced that the caches of weapons, drugs and video recordings of torture and beatings were discovered in Western Georgia, in the Samegrelo region.
“These caches were arranged under the direct supervision of high-ranking leaders of the former Ministry of Internal Affairs,” explains the head of the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia Nino Giorgobiani. - Also the archive containing photos and materials regarding persons opposed to the previous authorities was removed. Their arrests in the event of victory in the elections of the “United National Movement” were planned on false charges. Some documents are handwritten, which makes it easier to identify and apprehend those responsible. ”
Interior Minister Irakli Garibashvili reported on the measures taken by law enforcement agencies: “We managed to identify two victims. As a result, detained nine people. Two or three of them are active employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, one is an employee of the Ministry of Defense, two are former police officers, another person was directly involved in the violence against prisoners. ”
Will Kazakhs Irtysh Deploy? In Kazakhstan, they returned to the idea of turning the Irtysh River. According to "Lenta.ru" With reference to YK-News.kz, such a proposal is contained in a draft prepared by the Ministry of Regional Development.
The project “General Scheme of Organizations of the Territories” proposes to change the course of the Irtysh and direct the river to the central part of Kazakhstan.
Details - time, cost of work, technical part - the source does not lead. Earlier, in connection with the “general scheme of organization of territories,” the possibility of building the Irtysh-Syrdarya channel with a transfer volume of up to seven cubic kilometers per year was mentioned.
The project will be presented to the government at the end of the summer.
In Tashkent, painted trees. In Tashkent, they began painting Christmas trees that turned yellow from hot weather. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to Podrobno.uz.
The trees are painted with a spray paint of a rich bluish-green color. One large tree leaves about six cans of paint.
The Uzmetronom website suggested that the city authorities remembered the experience of the Turkestan Military District, in parts of which the grass was covered with green paint in the summer adjacent to the parade grounds.
“Fergana” reminds that over the past years in Tashkent there has been a systematic planting of fir trees, which are replacing chenars and other deciduous trees, “for centuries have saved the local population from the intense heat”. In this case, conifers dry and do not survive. However, spruce trees are planted "with enviable persistence."
The people, according to Uznews.net, rumor has it that the Christmas tree is Islam Karimov's favorite tree.

Did Hastings Kill? Konstantin Kerubov ("Voice of Russia") talked about the network’s discussion of the death of 33-year-old journalist Michael Hastings, who died a few hours after he discovered the FBI's surveillance.
He died in a car crash near Los Angeles. According to police, his car crashed into a tree and caught fire. Examination of his charred corpse is not completed. His body officially remains unidentified. Was the accident tweaked?
The Twitter blog WikiLeaks published an entry: “Michael Hastings contacted WikiLeaks lawyer Jennifer Robinson just a few hours before his death and said he was under investigation by the FBI.”
Hastings gained fame as a journalist specializing in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. In 2010, he published a scandalous article in the Rolling Stone magazine about General Stanley McChrystal, commander of the US forces in Afghanistan. The general criticized Afghan President Hamid Karzai, US Vice President Joe Biden, and was “disappointed” with the position of the American ambassador to Afghanistan during a debate in Washington about sending additional troops to this country. After the publication of the material McChrystal, writes K. Kerubov, was removed from his post by President Obama, and then dismissed from service.
In 2012, Hastings published a book about the war in Afghanistan.
In the last weeks before his death, Hastings worked on the CIA's activities (including the use of “drones”) and total electronic surveillance organized by the NSA.
In the latest article published on the BuzzFeed website, he stated that in the near future, new disclosures could await the Americans - following those that Edward Snowden had told the newspapers.
Users of Twitter and Reddit are discussing how the US intelligence services could have set the death of a journalist. One comment says: “If you want to live a long happy life, follow the party line.”
According to The New York Daily News, Hastings said that he had been threatened about once a year. He said that he was used to such pressure: “If you write about guys who kill other people, one of them will surely say that he will kill you.”
A year in prison for tweeting against Obama. A court in Alabama sentenced a local to a year in prison for calling for the murder of Barack Obama, as published on Twitter. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to the Associated Press.
26-year-old Jarvis Britton pleaded guilty to threatening the lives of the US president during a hearing. In accordance with the decision of the court, after his release, he will be under police surveillance for three years.
Britton sent a tweet containing the phrase "Let's kill the president," in September 2012. In the message, he also mentioned the underground organization FEAR (Forever Enduring Always Ready, “Forever Immortal, Always Ready”), which planned a coup d'etat and whose members shortly before the published tweet began a lawsuit.
As recalled by Lenta, Britton was not the first Twitter user to receive a prison sentence for threatening Obama. In May 2013, a North Carolina resident Donte Jamar Sims was sentenced to six months in prison on similar charges: in September 2012, he published five tweets in which he declared his intention to kill Obama and compared himself to Lee Harvey Oswald.
The geopolitical arena is nuclear. In the new review of Western publications from "Foreign Press" Various opinions on the topical “nuclear-free” topic are presented.
Barack Obama asks Russia to support the initiative to reduce nuclear weapons, reports The New York Times correspondent Jackie Calms. Half a century after John Kennedy’s famous speech in Berlin, Obama on Wednesday confirmed that the days of the Cold War are over and called on Russia to support his initiative to reduce nuclear arsenals. Why, only his goal in the Kremlin caused a skeptical reaction.
The proposal to reduce the number of deployed nuclear warheads to 1 thousand on each side will return the nuclear reserves of Russia and the United States to the level of 1954 of the year, the article says. The head of the White House also promised to cooperate with NATO in the field of reducing tactical nuclear weapons in Europe and seek ratification of the “Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty” signed by 17 years ago in the US Senate.
Comrade Putin expressed dissatisfaction with the US plans to deploy a missile defense system and regretted that the Soviet Union had signed an agreement on the elimination of medium-range missiles in Europe at the time. Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said that by demanding reductions in offensive weapons and at the same time developing missile defense, the US President "openly lies, bluffs, cunning."
Barack Obama idealizes Putin, writes The Washington Post. Obama said that “constructive relations in a spirit of cooperation that will lead us away from the cold war mindset” are possible with Putin, but “this is a narrow-minded view that stubbornly ignores the behavior of the Russian president,” the editorial board said.
It seems to Obama that Putin is “a leader whose domestic policy does not affect in any way his relations with the United States, his readiness or ability to conclude agreements, or the mission of America.” However, according to human rights activists, Putin launched a campaign of political repression. Moreover, Putin "bases his foreign policy on anti-Americanism," trying to "thwart the efforts of the West to change the regime in Syria."
Speaking in Berlin, Obama suggested cutting the US and Russian nuclear arsenals by a third. Such a reduction in nuclear weapons could harm US interests, according to Matthew Krönig, a researcher at Georgetown University. His article was published by Foreign Policy magazine.
Krönig claims that he was able to identify the relationship between the size of a country's nuclear arsenal and its ability to achieve national security goals. After analyzing on the basis of 52 countries that participated in nuclear crises from 1945 to 2001, the scientist came to the conclusion that a state with a large number of nuclear warheads is seventeen times more likely to achieve the desired.
“There is convincing evidence that the leaders of the nuclear powers pay attention to the nuclear balance of power and that the advantage in nuclear weapons directly translates into geopolitical advantages,” the researcher reports.
The reductions proposed by Obama will reduce America’s advantages in the eyes of Russia and reduce the US superiority over other countries with nuclear weapons, in particular, over China. The harm from nuclear disarmament is obvious, concludes Krönig.
“Moscow is afraid of losing its status as a world power,” is the title of the commentary in Der Spiegel.
Obama's proposal to reduce nuclear arsenals has a lot of reasons - if only because their modernization and maintenance in a state of combat "eats" huge amounts of money, the author writes. Washington, which has 7700 warheads, has to allocate about 8 billion dollars each year for this purpose. Moscow has such warheads - more than 8500. Meanwhile, journalist Benjamin Bidder notes, “Obama’s proposal was not met with enthusiasm in Moscow.” Russian military experts cite a "huge military imbalance" between Russia and the United States. The disarmament plans of the Americans "do not like Russia because it only feels equal with America with nuclear weapons."
The proposed disarmament contradicts the interests of the Russian military industrial complex. And in the establishment, it is widely believed that nuclear weapons are the guarantor of peace. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Bidder sums up, “Moscow has lost a significant part of its international influence, because the nuclear arsenal, along with the right to vote in the UN Security Council, is necessary for it to claim the status of a world power.”
The United States may impose sanctions on Russia. The State Department has published an annual report on human trafficking in various countries of the world, dividing them into several groups. Russia was in the latest.
How is the channel "RT"The report features 188 countries divided into three categories: states that combat human trafficking and meet relevant standards of US law; States that are making significant efforts to implement these standards; States that do not make enough effort.
Russia this year landed in the third category (it was previously registered in the second group). This means the possibility of imposing sanctions by the United States. Barack Obama will make a decision about this in September.
The third group also included China, Uzbekistan, Algeria, Cuba, Iran, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Syria, Libya, North Korea, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Mauritania, Papua New Guinea and Zimbabwe.
The authors of the report are confident that in the territory of the Russian Federation many people (about a million) are subjected to “exploitation” (they do not receive wages for labor), they are often subjected to physical impact and live in unsuitable conditions.
The Russians went to live abroad - after Kasparov and Guriev. It seems to Eduard Steiner («Die Welt»; source abbr. translation - "Inopressa"), the Russians now "surrender" and "go abroad."
Garry Kasparov and Sergei Guriev recently left Russia, Herr Steiner writes. Of course, their cases are specific, but they reflect the real trend of emigration. According to surveys of the Levada Center, the author writes, now they would like to leave 22% of the population to leave Russia. This is a new record compared to the 2009 result of the year, when 13% of respondents had similar thoughts.
Steiner understands that “not everyone is sitting on the suitcases”. Real “suitcase moods” are available only for 1% of Russians, even less than a percent collects exit documents.
“But for a country as large as Russia, with its 143-million population, this means that more than a million people are going to leave,” the article says. “And despite the fact that earlier, from Russia, they emigrated annually from 100 to 150 thousand people.”
There are many ways to move abroad, the author notes: from Jewish roots and winning the lottery of American Green Card to buying overseas property.
A new wave of emigration rose in the fall of 2011, when it became clear that Putin would return to the presidency for the third time. Since then, the journalist writes, “Russian officials and security agencies have broken off the chain, implementing the program of repression that has never been seen before.”
Putin, says further, is not the only reason to leave the country. Far more Russians are dissatisfied with the standard of living, the difficult economic situation, the arbitrariness of officials and the poor conditions for doing business.
The two most numerous groups emigrating from Russia are students and entrepreneurs.
On the Russian topic discussed in "The New York Times" Denis Corboy, William Courtney and Michael Haltzel (source of translation - "InoSMI").
Russia is not a totalitarian country, the authors say, and not the second edition of the USSR. But the measures that V. Putin has been resorting to since the end of 2011 of the year indicate that "quite Soviet arrogance retains power in Russia." Defending themselves against the demonstrators, the Russian president “is trying to strengthen his political base by mobilizing nationalists and xenophobes.”
“Independent organizations - as a“ Voice ”observing the elections and upholding human rights and honest history “Memorial” - may soon be closed, because they refuse to register as “foreign agents”, which in Russian means “spies”. In recent weeks, out of fear of a politically motivated arrest, chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov, the founder of Russia's largest social network, Pavel Durov, and the former head of the country's leading economic school, Sergei Guriev, chose to remain. ”
Blogger Alexei Navalny, who wants to run for president, was charged with false accusations. Journalists who criticize the authorities are beaten in Russia. In general, Russians are arrested on trumped-up charges for the sake of intimidation. Television in the country is controlled by the state, feeding the viewers "aggressive anti-American propaganda, unusual even for Soviet times."
Interesting Russia. In terms of growth and development, Russia is much more interesting than Europe, said in an exclusive interview "Voice of Russia" Managing Director, Chief Economist, Head of the Macroeconomic Strategy at Renaissance Capital, Charles Robertson. He, in particular, said:
“What will happen in Russia in 5-10 years will be much more interesting than what will happen in Europe. That is, in terms of growth and development, Russia is much more interesting than Europe. ”
The end of usa The United States is on the verge of financial destruction and may soon become a big Greece or Spain. This was stated by Donald Trump, who painted an unsightly perspective for the United States. Trump commented on the situation in his recent speech on Fox News in the show “Direct recording with Greta van Sousteren,” writes Mixednews.ru with reference to Money News.
The United States, according to Trump, is no longer rich. Downgrading the US debt rating is inevitable. Not only the swelling of public debt and the imminent credit rating reduction are worrying Trump. He says that the real US unemployment rate is 15-16%. And even, he said, some cite data on the 21 percentage.
Behind Trump, in a different interview, was made by Robert Wiedemer. This man is not as famous as Rich Trump, the owner of a television show, but it was he who precisely predicted the economic crisis that the United States had almost sank. It was still in 2006 year.
At that time, Wiedmer and the team of economists predicted the upcoming financial crisis of the American housing market, private debts and consumer spending. They published their data in the American economic bubble.
Today Wiedemer draws a horrible ending for America.
In a recent interview about his book “The Last Blow”, he said: “The prospect is clear: 50% unemployment, stock market decline by 90% and 100% annual inflation ... start at 2012.”
The facilitator questioned these statements, but Wiedmer showed the graphs as proof and added: “You see, the medicine can become a poison”. The interview showed that the financial "rescue" of the country, undertaken by Washington, failed ingloriously. The blame for this lies with Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanke and the former Federal Reserve boss Greenspene.
Once Wiedemer challenged Bernanke, saying that his "money from heaven leads to hell."
In an interview with Wiedmer, realistic step-by-step problem solutions were proposed. The huge number of responses requesting the publication of this interview led to a well-known government reaction: the network administrations began to ban it. Bernanke and Greenspan, of course, were not eager to publicly support Wiedemer.
"People sat and made notes, and they asked us to publish an interview so that they could give links to it," says Aaron de Hug, publisher of Newsmax Financial, "but unfortunately they were still banned."
Comrade de Hug promised to make every effort to distribute video from the interview.
Yes, of course, we add on our own, and Big Brother will make his own efforts.
