Germany and Turkey taught each other life. Angela Merkel stated that “what is happening in Turkey now does not correspond to the notions of freedom of demonstration and freedom of speech”. In response, Turkish officials advised her not to repeat the mistakes of Sarkozy. A diplomatic scandal erupted that could well freeze talks on Turkey’s accession to the EU, reports "RT" with reference to Kommersant.

Earlier, Angela Merkel gave an interview to the German television channel "RTL". “What is happening now in Turkey does not correspond to our ideas about the freedom to hold demonstrations and freedom of speech,” the chancellor commented on the dispersal of the protesters in Gezi Park and on Taksim Square.

Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag responded by saying that he had been more frightened by the neo-Nazi murders of Turkish immigrants who had not been investigated in Germany for years. Turkish Minister for EU Relations, Egemen Bagis, added that “to earn points on the eve of elections in Germany at the expense of Turkey is a frankly bad idea.” Bagysh also believes that Merkel "runs the risk of repeating the mistakes of the ex-President of France, Nicolas Sarkozy." It is known that the politician opposed Turkey’s accession to the EU, and also initiated the recognition of the Armenian genocide by France. The minister advised the German chancellor to "remember how badly those who go against Turkey usually end up" and added that "3,5 million Turkish citizens living in Germany adhere to the same opinion, the overwhelming majority of whom have the right to vote in this country."

Guido Westerwelle, head of the German Foreign Office, was shocked by these statements. In his opinion, the government of any country should rejoice in the development of civil society, "especially if it wants to go to Europe."

The Turkish ambassador in Berlin was summoned to the German Foreign Ministry, and a few hours later the same happened to the German ambassador to Turkey.

News from New Guinea - not positive. In this state, located on a tropical island between the Pacific and Indian oceans, cases of cannibalism and "witch hunts" have become frequent.

The majority of the population of New Guinea are Christians. There is also some part that adheres to local beliefs.

In May, the 2013 of the country abolished the “law on witchcraft”, which provided for soft sanctions against the killer izuvera. However, in early June, the village teacher Helen Rambali was accused of witchcraft. The "Culprit" was caught, tortured with knives. Then the unfortunate woman was cut off her head, and her house was burned down. Her husband and son are government officials.

Opinions are being advanced that accusations of witchcraft serve on the island as a method of settling accounts - because of envy, enmity, hope of profit from the property or land of the deceased.

Bomb at the mosque. British police announced the bomb, neutralized by law enforcement officers in Walsall.

On Friday night, a suspicious object was found near the local mosque. Fearing a terrorist attack, authorities evacuated residents of 40 homes. Sappers arrived at the scene.

"For our wives and lovers." The command of the British Royal Navy has banned some traditional toasts that sailors utter daily at dinner, reports RIA News" with reference to the "Daily Mail".

The maritime tradition of pronouncing a certain toast every night has been around in the UK for over 200 years. The decision of the Royal Navy is due to the fact that over the past 20 years in navy the number of women soldiers has increased. New toasts are also called to “reflect cultural change.”

For example, the Tuesday toast “For our wives and lovers” (after which the phrase “and may they never meet” usually sounded) was banned and replaced with “For our families”. Saturday toast "For our men" has changed to "For our sailors."

Today Berlusconi will hear the verdict. As reported from Rome correspondent RIA "Novosti" Natalia Shmakova, the court of Milan will sentence Silvio Berlusconi in the "Ruby case".

The investigation believes that the politician had an intimate relationship with the Moroccan Karim el-Marug, nicknamed Ruby, when she was not 18 years old. Minor parties were held in the villa of the ex-premier in Arcore. The Milan Prosecutor’s Office believes that a “streamlined system of prostitution” operated in Arcore.

The accused and the Moroccan himself have repeatedly stated that there was no intimate connection between them. However, prosecutor Ilda Bokkassini demanded punishment in the form of six years in prison for the ex-prime minister. Berlusconi also faces a life ban to hold public office.

Bulgarians against plutocracy. Representatives of the Bulgarian intelligentsia signed a declaration yesterday against the “power of the rich”. This happened against the background of anti-government actions, which lasted ten days in the country, RIA News" with reference to France Press.

Protests in the country started ten days ago - after the appointment of media mogul Delyan Peevski as head of the State National Security Service. Peevski said he agreed to resign, but the protests continued.

More than sixty representatives of the intelligentsia signed the Charter for the Elimination of the Plutocratic Model of the Bulgarian State. The document calls for an end to the power of the rich and the restoration of democracy and the rule of law in the country. Quote from the text of the Charter:

“The protests of tens of thousands of people throughout the country were caused by extremely concern about the state of the state system in Bulgaria. No doubt, our social contract is facing a deep crisis, and our state institutions are completely discredited. ”


The appointment of Mr. Peevsky is considered by the authors of the text only as one example of the “clutch of oligarchy and power” over the past few years.

The authors of the declaration, reports RIA Novosti, propose to create an expert group to change the country's electoral code and revise the existing legislation. The oligarchy should be deprived of access to budget funds.

Moldavian Orthodox Church against politicians. As Valentin Mindreshesku writes ("Voice of Russia"), The Synod of the Orthodox Church of Moldova decided to deprive representatives of the ruling coalition of the right to confession and communion in Orthodox churches.

The cause of the conflict is the “law on equality of chances”, adopted by the Moldovan parliament under pressure from the European Union. The church, the opposition and the conservative part of Moldovan citizens believe that this law gives too great rights and opportunities to members of sexual minorities and that its adoption is a step towards the destruction of traditional Moldovan society. Representatives of pro-European parties justify the adoption of the law by the requirements of European diplomats and the need to adapt to "European norms": after all, European negotiators publicly threatened the Moldovan authorities to freeze the process of signing the Association Agreement between the EU and Moldova, unless the law passes.

A month ago, the Synod of the MOC put forward an ultimatum: if the government and parliament do not take steps to change the law, then politicians who support the adoption of the law will be excommunicated. Now the Moldavian Metropolis has taken decisive action. The official report of the Synod lists the sanctions that will be applied to politicians:

“We play the role of opponents and openly separate ourselves from those who explicitly persecute the Church of Christ. So, we are forced to resort to strict corrective measures - to the canonical tradition of excommunication from the Church until they repent. At first, the rulers will be denied admission to the sacrament of the sacrament, and then, depending on their repentance, they will be accepted into church fellowship or permanently barred from any participation in worship. ”


Members of the Synod also promised to move on to the organization of new mass protests.

Ideas Saakashvili. Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili promised to leave politics in October. He stated this in an interview with the Estonian edition of Postimees, reports "Lenta.ru".

“As soon as Saakashvili leaves and the new presidential elections take place, I will stay no more than for a few days,” the premier said. According to Ivanishvili, for the political situation in the country is bad when the rate is all the time for one person. He also expressed confidence that the most important posts - the president, the prime minister and the speaker of the parliament - after the elections will be taken by “pure people, democrats”. Ivanishvili did not specify who can become his successor, but said that he “has an idea” on this subject.

About Georgian caches. 23 June Mikhail Saakashvili said that caches of weapons, ammunition and explosives in Samegrelo were made by his personal order, so that in the event of “renewed aggression” Georgia was not as vulnerable as in 2008 year.

But the video with torture, in his words, “was not”, is transmitted "Vesti" with reference to Interfax.

According to the method of Danila Bagrov. The participant in the assassination attempt on Armenian presidential candidate Paruyr Hayrikyan, Khachik Poghosyan, is an admirer of the film “Brother”. About this, as transmits "Lenta.ru" With reference to the REGNUM news agency, he himself declared at the trial.

As a silencer for the pistol, he used a plastic bottle, like the hero of a famous film.

“Two days before the attempt, we (Pogosyan and his accomplice Samvel Harutyunyan) went to our home, took a gun, a bottle, attached one tape to another, tried it - the sound was low,” he describes the preparation for a crime. “I remembered how the main character in my favorite movie“ Brother ”did something like this - he wound a plastic bottle on a pistol and started shooting at a Chechen ... No one heard the shots.”


The defendant confirmed that he received an order from another presidential candidate, Vardan Sedrakyan. At the same time, he argues that it was only a matter of “frightening” the victim. According to Poghosyan, he allegedly tried to shoot past Hayrikyan, but one of the bullets accidentally hit the politician.

The injured presidential candidate identified the gunman. He rejected the version of “intimidation”. According to Hayrikyan, they were going to kill him.

The attempt on the former dissident presidential candidate Paruyr Hayrikyan was made on the night of February 1, 2013, shortly before the elections, recalls Lenta.

The Americans are addicted to pills. Nearly 70% of Americans take at least one prescription drug. More than half of Americans take more than two drugs. About 20% of the population of the country takes five or more prescription drugs. This is evidenced by the results of studies conducted by experts at several US medical centers, writes Mixednews.ru with reference to "Eurek Alert".

“Most often, when people talk about their health, they mean chronic diseases like heart disease or diabetes,” says study leader Dr. Jennifer Sauve. - However, antidepressants are the second most popular prescription drugs. This means that the problem of mental health is now particularly acute. The third most popular are sleeping pills, which is also alarming, given that these drugs are addictive. ”

According to the study, seventeen percent of Americans take antibiotics, 13% - antidepressants, another 13% - hypnotics. At the fourth place are drugs that lower the level of lipids, such as cholesterol (11%), for example.

Ron Paul: The dollar will collapse, and gold will rise in value. Ex-Congressman Ron Paul warned: the dollar could collapse, and gold could become invaluable. This tells Mixednews.ru with reference to "RINF".

“If we are not careful, the price of gold will rise incredibly because the dollar will collapse,” Paul said in a telephone interview with CNBC. “As long as the state continues to live on credit, while these impersonal electronic money are multiplying, gold will grow in value,” he cautioned.

"Six thousand years stories proved that gold always retains its value, unlike paper money that destroys itself, ”comrade Paul concluded.

Named the main villain in the world of espionage. Yesterday, the Xinhua news agency called the United States the main "villains." The accusations against Washington were made after the regular revelations of Edward Snowden, who spoke about the surveillance of American intelligence services for Chinese citizens, writes "Lenta.ru".

“The United States, which for a long time played out the innocent victim of cybercrime, in fact turned out to be the main villains of our time,” said Xinhua. The agency called on the US authorities to tell China and other countries about the scale and objectives of their hacker attacks.

From Hong Kong to Sheremetyevo. Meanwhile, the United States called the "extremely regrettable" actions of the Hong Kong authorities, which allowed Snowden to freely leave the region. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to Agence France-Presse.

Officials from the US Department of Justice stressed that Washington had completed all the procedures provided for in the bilateral agreements necessary to detain Snowden in Hong Kong and then consider the request for his extradition. Official comments from the Hong Kong authorities have not yet followed. Earlier, the government of the region stated that it did not have any legal grounds for preventing Snowden from leaving it.

As the RIA News" with reference to Reuters, on Sunday it became known that Snowden arrived from Hong Kong to Moscow and sought asylum in Ecuador. Also, the media called the possible purpose of his trip to Venezuela, and the transit point - Cuba.

Some details about the arrival of Comrade Snowden in Sheremetyevo leads Interfax.

According to the airport's scoreboard, the SU213 flight landed at terminal F Sheremetyevo on 17: 05. According to a source in the administration of the airport in Hong Kong, Snowden was aboard the Aeroflot plane, which left for Moscow. “Passenger Edward Snowden was not only checked in, but also absolutely on board. It was marked during landing, ”said the source.

A source familiar with the situation told Interfax that Snowden could have been the first to be taken out of the plane to a special airport lounge.

“The passengers of the Hong Kong voyage were not launched via a teletrap, that is, the so-called sleeve, but by a common ladder. Usually with long-haul large capacity flights do differently, connecting the teletrap. Here the usual ladder was fitted, most likely, not without purpose. Because when you connect the teetrap, you can’t get anyone out unnoticed, and Snowden could be brought out first, ”the source explained.

He added that for the conspiracy Snowden could have been taken to another airport terminal, to one of the special halls, or even taken out of the territory of the airline complex.

Later it became known that Snowden is indeed located at Sheremetyevo. Interfax was told by a source in the airport services: “The passenger Snowden is a transit passenger, the next flight is to Cuba, he is in the airport complex, where he is supposed to be waiting for the next flight.”

The source said that Snowden had rented a room in a capsule hotel in terminal E. “He arrived. He cannot get out of the term, since he does not have a Russian visa, ”the Interfax interlocutor explained, adding that Sarah Harrison, the WikiLeaks representative accompanying the American, has a visa.

It is also reported that a car from the Ecuadorian embassy arrived at terminal F, whose employee spent some time at the airport and drove away.

As Interfax reminds, yesterday in a statement published by WikiLeaks, it was reported that Snowden was taken by safe route to a country where he would be granted asylum.

“He is going on a safe route to a democratic state in order to obtain asylum. He is accompanied by diplomats and legal advisors at WikiLeaks, the statement said.

A spokeswoman for the US Department of Justice Nanda Chitri said that Washington would seek legal cooperation with those countries where Snowden could go.

Hourly details about the arrival of Snowden to Moscow, those interested can learn from the online report of Elizaveta Kuznetsova, Grigory Milenin and Olga Denisova ("Voice of Russia").

American accusations Putin. Senator Charles Schumer suggested that Vladimir Putin was aware of Edward Snowden’s plans to lay a route through Moscow. This tells "Lenta.ru" with reference to Reuters.

Mr Schumer told CNN: "Putin never misses an opportunity to poke the United States with his finger in the eye - be it Syria, Iran or the current situation with Snowden."

The senator complained that such a position is not the best influence on Russian-American relations.

Schumer suggested that China was involved in the organization of Snowden's escape from the United States, and expressed the opinion that "the allies should treat each other in a proper way."

Brother Bout gives advice. Russia should arrest Snowden and try to exchange him for Viktor Bout. This was announced by the brother of the Russian businessman Sergei Bout in an interview with the Interfax news agency, the channel said "RT".

"I am with two hands for arresting Snowden," said the brother of a businessman. According to Sergei Bout, if he and his relatives could do something in this situation, they would undertake efforts to exchange the former employee of the American special services for Victor. “If it depended on me, I would have done it a long time ago,” he said.

Google vs Roskomnadzor. Vladimir Zykov ("News") writes that Google has refused to comply with the requirements of Roskomnadzor.

User’s registration with Google’s online services signifies their acceptance of the terms of use and privacy policy consistent with US law. So, Google is not obliged to notify Roskomnadzor about the processing of personal data of Russians. So the company responded to the request of the Russian office on the confidentiality of user data. This was reported to the correspondent of Izvestia by the head of the department for the protection of the rights of subjects of personal data of Roskomnadzor, Yuriy Kontemirov.

Earlier, Roskomnadzor sent a request to “Google” to respect the confidentiality of the personal data of Russians in the Gmail mail service. This service analyzes the content of the letters, thereby determining which advertising is best shown to a specific person. If a user has recently discussed a certain topic with his correspondence partners, then an advertisement on the relevant topic may be of interest to him. The contents of the letters are not analyzed by people, but by a computer, representatives of “Google” explained to the publication. Therefore, in their opinion, the violation of the secrecy of correspondence is not in question.

“Roskomnadzor” in Russia is the authorized body for the protection of the rights of personal data subjects. By law, companies that are going to process personal data must notify him. True, this requirement has exceptions. One of them is the case when the data is processed by agreement with the relevant person and is not provided to the party without his consent.

At Google, we are sure that the user’s passage of registration is the conclusion of a contract, so the company can process the personal data of Russians without notifying Roskomnadzor.

According to the head of the legal department of the Coordination Center of the national domain of the Network, Sergey Kopylov, if Google has no servers in Russia with personal data of users, then the company should not register with Roskomnadzor as an operator of personal data.

And in the "Google" newspaper "Izvestia" said that they do not have servers in Russia.

“Where is your industry?” Another portal review "Inopressa" dedicated to the topic of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

When, for the first time, the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum became the site of Russia's main presentation for investors in 2006, the mood was raised there, The Financial Times reporters recall. The Russian economy grew by 7% per year, the country was pleased with its membership in BRIC.

However, seven years later, a different mood prevails in the second city of Russia. Economic growth from January to May this year has slowed to 1,8% compared to 4,5% in the first half of last year, Economic Development Minister Andrei Belousov told a thousand delegates. The session at which he spoke turned into a discussion about the reasons for the slowdown in Russian economic growth.

“The slowdown partly reflects the weakening demand for energy and commodities, which remain Russia's main economic drivers,” the authors note. But, perhaps, the Russian economy has exhausted the possibilities of growth? Investment growth in the first five months of this year fell to zero — from 13% in the first half of 2012, Belousov said.

Some business people believe that the slowdown in investment reflects fears of an authoritarian turn in politics - along with the struggle of the clans. Many delegates are stunned by the flight to France of liberal economist Sergey Guriev, who has come under pressure due to criticism of the Khodorkovsky case, the article says.

“People are afraid of the return of 1930's,” said one of the bankers, who did not want to give his name. “Guriev… is a harmless person, completely untainted.” This shows that anyone can be involved. ”

What does Guriev himself think?

The Financial Times publishes his article. Theoretically, in Russia now everything should be rosy, Mr. Guriev writes. Commodity prices are high, national debt is low, the budget is balanced, sovereign wealth funds maintain healthy proportions, there is no political instability. There are obvious investment opportunities. But why did Russia's economic growth start to run out of steam?

He replies: “Further economic growth requires investment in new and existing firms. This requires a good business climate, especially the protection of property rights and the rule of law. ” Meanwhile, “in all ratings reflecting business regulation, risks for investment and the level of corruption, Russia lags behind most emerging markets.”

The economic program of V. Putin includes many measures that will improve the prospects for investors. But the trouble is that investors are no longer persuaded by words that are not supported by deed. Investors are “voting with their feet” against governments that do not want or cannot fulfill their promises, ”summarizes Guriev.

“It was impossible not to notice the dramatically increased over the past decade, often ostentatious Russian wealth based on energy, the screaming luxury of Moscow, 76-meter yachts, penthouse apartments for hundreds of millions of dollars,” the New York Times correspondents write. "However, it seems that these exciting days are coming to an end," the authors say.

The flow of oil and gas wealth, which has raised living standards in Russia, is now drying up. Foreign investors, concerned about corruption and the increasing role of the state in the economy, are turning back. “The way government is organized in the country predetermines its weak economic activity. The role of the state is too great, it is involved in its various spheres too much, and by its very nature it pushes private investment away, ”says the publication’s opinion of the former head of Merrill Lynch in Russia, Bernard Sacher.

“Where is your industry? You can produce great fighter jets, but what else? ”Asked the Chinese economist Yu Yongding at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

More than a decade of efforts to diversify the economy failed, the publication said. Raw material is 80% of export.

“Russia is forced to admit that its economy is not growing as fast as expected. The consolation is the recently concluded giant oil deal with China, ”writes Focus.

Vladimir Putin, on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, announced an agreement for the supply of 100 million tons of Russian oil to China (the transaction amount is 60 billion dollars).

And the first deputy chairman of the Central Bank, Alexei Ulyukayev, also writes, “against the custom, he frankly criticized the government’s plans to devalue the national currency.” In government circles, it has been repeatedly stated that a weakened ruble brings with it advantages when trading oil and gas for dollars, the Focus notes.

Shock of the Paris Air Show. In the article "Russian air power shook the Paris Air Show" ("The Wall Street Journal"; source of translation - "InoSMI") Daniel Michaels writes that at Le Bourget one of the main sensations was not just an airliner from Airbus or Boeing, but the Russian fighter. The new Su-35, the author writes, for the first time carried out demonstration flights outside Russia, demonstrating maneuvers that only a few of the western aircraft can repeat.

Two decades after the collapse of the USSR, the journalist notes, the Russian defense industry is once again becoming stronger in world markets. United Aircraft Corporation and similar companies are reaping the benefits of many years of restructuring under President Putin. Russian defense exports have risen roughly fourfold since the beginning of 1990, according to the Stockholm Peace Research Institute. Most of this growth is in recent years.

The author of the material clarifies that most of the Russian products presented at the air show are modernized versions of Soviet technology.

“Let's say Su-35 is one of the many descendants of Su-27 who first took to the air in 1977 year. The Ka-52 helicopter, which attracted the attention of an unusual pair of screws located one above the other and rotating in opposite directions, is a new version of the model that made its first flight in the 1982 year. ”


Airplanes and helicopters from Russia, the author writes, are deprived of state-of-the-art electronics present in competing Western models, and usually require more maintenance. However, they are reliable, well tested and relatively inexpensive. “This is a very attractive looking machine with very good features, which is much cheaper than the Western one,” says editor of the British Defense Analysis newsletter Francis Tews.

Russia sells aircraft not only to the military. Russian helicopter sales are growing by more than 15% per year. They are particularly successful in India and China, says Igor Pshenichny, deputy general director of Russian Helicopters.

Sukhoi has created a new passenger aircraft, the Superjet 100. It is sold in Russia and in other countries - for example, in Mexico.

But most analysts believe that Russian prospects on the world market are still connected with the sector of cheap military equipment. Western aerospace companies recognize: Russian products are cheaper. Of course, they immediately say that it is better to buy more expensive Western equipment.

So, we’ll add: Russian equipment is better, more reliable, cheaper, but you don’t need to buy it. Case for the arguments, eh?

        Of course they will. Then such a howl rises that on the moon they hear. And even without a U.S. order, as when the aim mark lies on you, your head is sobering well. After all, Europeans are accustomed to live and help spread democracy without fear of the response "thank you, we do not need."

    How many things are tied around Syria. If the infa about the supply of Israeli weapons to militants is true, then this (even no words, censorship will not miss). I recall how Israeli aviation delivered a preemptive strike on allegedly missiles for Hezbollah, and maybe hit warehouses in Turkey while the weapons are lying there tightly, then apologize winked

      Mossad recruits Algerian youth to fight in Syria

      Mossad controls the activities of Salafi groups in Syria. In addition, they are doing their best to attract Algerian youth to the “Syrian jihad,” which implies the killing of civilians and the escalation of instability in the country.

      Various sources report that Salafi groups in Algeria have direct contact with Tunisia and also receive cash and military assistance from Qatar.

      Earlier this week, in one of his speeches, a senior officer of the Austrian army spoke about the help that Israel received from the Israeli militants.

          There are two television channels in Israel, the Knesset Channel 33, which broadcasts only meetings and interviews with deputies, and the first, which has an independent editorial policy, and which is state-owned only in terms of ownership. There is also a radio "Reshet Bet", "Galatz", "GalGalatz", "Reka". Everyone except perhaps GALATS, which is an army radio station, has an independent information policy.

          The rest - newspapers, magazines, websites, etc. - is in private hands, the independence of the editorial policy is strictly regulated by trade unions, and the owners do not have special access to it.

      Asange over how much time is sitting at the Embassy of Ecuador? Do not give it out despite attempts. So, from Ecuador there is no extradition smile By the way, infa slipped that Assange and agreed.
      It made fun of how Americans perceive it:
      However, the Russians have always had one weakness: they like to annoy the United States. They mostly do this when it comes to double standards and alleged hypocrisy. In such situations, they simply cannot remain silent, although the end result is usually catastrophic, putting everyone in an awkward position. But although such a predisposition to trolling is not some recent innovation (if you do not believe me, read what the Russian authorities said about the NATO campaign in Yugoslavia), the Russians have been constantly raising rates over the past couple of years. Dmitry Trenin said this best of all when he noticed that "Russia is virtually, intellectually and physically turning into a haven for those who sharpen an ax to the West." Julian Assange, Edward Snowden: There is no person declared wanted by America who the Russians would not support verbally or financially.

      For some strange reason, the Russians suddenly decided that they could show America cookies without any consequences for themselves. On their part, this is terrible idiocy.

And for example, the harm done to him is not just a blow to the snout of a drunken shit, but an insult to the form, that is, to the entire Russian army (however, the abominations he does are also an insult to her and not just a drunken nonsense). So the assault on the embassy is an assault on all international law. And now, when the West has placed this right in a convenient position for use, the importance of formalities has grown. It always happens when the case is no longer so ...

"where are you sitting" - I'm sitting in the economy class. "- but could you put him in a business class ?." - in the business class, we also have people and they will immediately tell us if he appears there ...
      They arranged a whole hunt .... some kind of tryndets ... I’m sure that the FSB is participating on our part and Snowden will be there where it is necessary without extra tails .. and maybe even share something (my desire is so mercantile) maybe Old Man will give him refuge )))
      Mr. Schumer told CNN: “Putin never misses a chance to poke a finger in the United States “Whether it's Syria, Iran, or the current situation with Snowden.”

      Good Putin .. I would have already squeezed out both eyes if I could.

    "Meanwhile, the US called the" extremely unfortunate "actions of the Hong Kong authorities that allowed Snowden to leave the region unhindered."

    Snowden is not Ecuador at all, but we need to be granted political asylum.

      This toast is just like twice two, characterizes the moral state of the armed forces

        Hmm ... cynicism has absolutely nothing to do with it.
        Toast is a joke of the beginning of the 18th century. when seafarers on good did not at all expect a wife to retire. Even in the Napoleonic wars, sailors in the service could marry only after: reaching the rank of commander and 40 years. In the Russian fleet, by the way, it was about the same.
        We haven’t been at home for years (after all, sailboats were much more in sailing), it is clear that families were falling apart. Portal whores in the service were port whores.
        And now, English sailors should not be compared with our submariners (koi spend 50-60 days a year swimming, but with merchant sailors who have not been at home for years (because they swim many times more than ours).

    About Georgian caches. On June 23, Mikheil Saakashvili stated that the caches with weapons, ammunition and explosives in Samegrelo were made on his personal order, so that in the event of a "resumption of aggression" Georgia would not be as vulnerable as in 2008.

    But the videos of torture, according to him, “were not”, they transmit to “Vesti” with reference to “Interfax”.

    What does not suit is "not." Pimp !!!

    "Friends" will help Syria. About the decision of the "Group of Friends of Syria" says Natalia Kovalenko (Voice of Russia).

    "Friends of Syria" decided to help the Syrian "opposition". In Doha, a meeting of foreign ministers of eleven member countries of the community was held. According to them, to restore the balance of power in Syria, the rebels need to provide "everything necessary."

    What an impudence! Soon, these terrorist rebels must unite so that they do not have time to "friends" help.

    The author of the material clarifies that most of the Russian products presented at the air show are modernized versions of Soviet technology.

    “Let's say Su-35 is one of the many descendants of Su-27 who first took to the air in 1977 year. The Ka-52 helicopter, which attracted the attention of an unusual pair of screws located one above the other and rotating in opposite directions, is a new version of the model that made its first flight in the 1982 year. ”

    Su-35 aircraft built on Soviet developments, but still this is a product new Russia. There are practically no high-tech products from scratch; an analog and a basic sample are always used.
    I’m wondering when they’ll stop writing "is this the whole hurt of the Soviet Union ... the development of the 70s-80s"? The third ten went as we live in another country ...
    Interestingly, but the T-50 is also a product made in the USSR?
    IMHO, the definition "Made in Russia", and not the USSR, is quite suitable for these aircraft ... enough to live in the past drinks the school of designers in the country is present, it is not necessary to think that "former students remake the previously invented by MEGA designers".
