9 and 11. Only 11 countries from G20 stated that they support US actions on Syria even in the absence of a UN Security Council mandate, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta, citing RIA News".
In addition to the United States, the White House statement was signed by the following states: Australia, Canada, France, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.
The text states: “The signatory countries have consistently supported a tough UN Security Council resolution, given that the leadership of the international response is the responsibility of the Security Council, but also recognize that the Security Council remains paralyzed, as it has been for two and a half years. The world cannot wait until the end of endless processes that can only lead to growing suffering in Syria and international instability. We support the efforts made by the United States and other countries to enforce a ban on the use of chemical weapons. ”
About deliberate misinformation. After posting on the Internet of the so-called “Syrian Free Army” video frames of the massacre of civilians in Guta, picked up by the American and French services, Alawite families filed a lawsuit against the murderers, reports newsbalt.ru with reference to the Voltaire network.
The fact is that some videos were posted on Youtube before the events that were supposedly presented to them.
Children suffocate as a result of chemical intoxication, the cause of which cannot be sarin gas, as the gas causes yellow saliva to be released, not white. These children do not correspond to the sample of the local population: they are almost all of the same age and have blond hair.
In fact, we are talking about children kidnapped by jihadists two weeks before the event.
All the victims of the massacre in Guta belong to families supporting the Syrian government. And those who pose for shots and resent “the crimes of Bashar al-Assad” are their killers.
Former CIA, State Department, and Pentagon employees totaling 12 sent a collective letter to the US president warning him against commission historical errors, transmit channel "RT".
The text of the message is “Global Resource”. Among other things, the text states: “Many of our colleagues strongly oppose the views of your administration: the most reliable intelligence reports indicate that Bashar Asad is not responsible for the attack in the August 21 suburb of Damascus. This is also confirmed by British intelligence sources. When writing this report, we were guided by the fact that your advisors probably deliberately misinformed you. ”
The authors recalled that the United States made one mistake a decade ago when, relying on fabricated intelligence, they invaded Iraq.
According to the signatories, the head of the CIA, John Brennan, is trying to repeat the Iraqi scenario, intentionally misleading both the Congress and the public. Referring to the years of joint work with the named person, the ex-secret services said that he was absolutely not credible. The same applies to the director of national intelligence, James Klapper, who admitted that he gave an oath in the Congress "clearly erroneous testimony," denying the CIA's surveillance of American citizens.
It was the Secretary of State Kerry who relied on Clapper’s opinion, trying to increase confidence in the “Government Evaluation” - a document prepared not by intelligence at all, but by the White House. This is just a political document based on questionable data.
Former US security officials claim that a growing amount of evidence is evidence: the August 21 attack was a pre-planned provocation by opposition militants and their supporters from Saudi Arabia and Turkey.
The authors of the letter stressed that there is an obvious interest in the war and another US ally in the Middle East - Israel.
Former CIA, State Department and Pentagon officials also warned Obama that retaliation from the Syrian side is inevitable.
Not only these people opposed the operation in Syria.
"Never again." In Washington and New York, protests took place, reports Interfax with reference to the Associated Press.
A group of activists from MoveOn.org made a 30-second video that said the United States did not initially intend to stay for eight years in Iraq and ten years in Afghanistan. The authors predict that in the event of an invasion of Syria, the same thing will happen: America will be stuck in a war.
The video, the leitmotif of which is the slogan "Never Again", ends with an appeal to the audience to urge congressmen to vote against the resolution authorizing a blow to Syria.
MoveOn.org says that the video will be shown on the MSNBC channel a week, and on Tuesday, when B. Obama addresses the nation, the frequency of impressions will be increased.
The organization’s executive director, Anna Galland, said that according to the 24-hour voting results, 70% of MoveOn.org members were against military intervention in Syria. Opinion polls show that most Americans do not support Obama in this matter.
On Saturday, protests were held in Washington and New York against the possible bombing of Syria. About 200 people under the slogan "They say that we need a new war, we say there is no war" held a picket in front of the White House, and then went to Congress.
And members of the movement "Capture Wall Street" in New York staged a demonstration under the slogan "No new wars in the name of corporate profits."
A new word in geopolitics: the British prohibit Americans. American aviation it is forbidden to use British military bases to strike in Syria, reports "RT" with reference to ITAR-TASS. The ban included the British Air Force Base Akrotiri in Cyprus and the long-range strategic aviation base Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean. British journalists point out that this is probably the first such restriction since the Second World War.
As recalled by "RT", the Akrotiri base, which remained under the sovereignty of London after granting Cyprus independence, in 2011, played the role of a command center for coordinating operations in Libya. From there, the reconnaissance aircraft E3D, the AWACS radar aircraft were maintained and the situation in the region was monitored. At this base, the headquarters of the joint command of the Air Force was deployed, which coordinated the movement of combat units of Great Britain in the area of operation.
Hollande decided to wait. The French president said he was waiting for a report from the UN weapons inspectors on whether chemical weapons were used on 21 on August. Mixednews.ru with reference to military.com.
"We will wait for the report of the inspectors, and we will wait for the Congress (US)," said Hollande at a press conference in St. Petersburg.
Representatives of the United Nations declared that the report of inspectors will not be ready until October. They also stressed that the results will show whether chemical weapons were used, and not who is responsible for this.
"Canadians clearly do not want ..." As transmits correspondent ITAR-TASS Alexander PakhomovMost Canadians oppose international military intervention in the conflict in Syria. This was shown by the published results of a nationwide survey conducted by the research forum research service.
46% of respondents expressed the conviction that the international community should not resort to military actions against Damascus, and 42% did not agree with them. 50% of respondents believe that Ottawa should not participate in operations in Syria. 75% believe that the Canadian government of Stephen Harper should not make any decisions on the involvement of soldiers or military equipment in a military action against Damascus, without holding discussions in parliament.
“Canadians clearly do not want their country to participate in the intervention in Syria,” said Lorne Bosinoff, the head of the Forum Study.
Italians say Russia thanks for supporting Syria. Yevgeny Suchkov ("TVNZ") talked about posters in Rome. These posters, signed: “I am with Putin,” depict the president of Russia.
This social advertisement is the idea of a resurgent ultra-right National Front movement, headed by Adriano Tilger. “Thus, we wanted to express our agreement with the ban in Russia of gay propaganda and adoption of children by gay couples, as well as to thank the Russian Federation for its inflexible position on Syria,” the movement’s representatives say.
Local LGBT students are trying to fight with posters: their associations have filed an application to the Capitol.
The author of the material notes that not only many youth movements of the right and left, but also Catholic organizations are increasingly calling Russia publicly "the last stronghold of healthy humanity."
President against the people. The upcoming operation against Syria will not increase US influence in the region and threatens to turn into a prolonged conflict, so the president should withdraw the resolution on a strike on Syria, which he sent to Congress. This was stated by the US congressmen, reports "RT".
Republican Congressman from Texas, the head of the House Committee on Internal Security, Michael McCall, told NBC on the air:
“We always worry about our influence. The problem is that several Tomahawk missiles cannot restore our confidence abroad. This is an attempt by the president to save face after he has drawn a red line. ”
Further, Mr. McCall noted that a strike on Syria would lead to a prolonged conflict: “Big wars start from small wars”.
Deputies from the republican majority in the House of Representatives say that their voters are categorically against a military conflict.
According to The Hill, in the opinion of Massachusetts Democratic Congressman Jim McGovern, the president should withdraw a resolution from Congress in which he proposes to sanction the use of force against Syrian government forces.
“I think the war now is the last thing people need,” said McGovern.
As the "Russian newspaper" With reference to RIA Novosti, voting in the US House of Representatives on the Syrian resolution may be postponed for a week.
The reason: the Obama administration’s plans are faced with a serious opposition in Congress: in the House of Representatives, the proposal for Syria does not gain a majority.
However, as noted correspondent ITAR-TASS Dmitry Zlodorev, the leader of the democratic majority in the Senate, Garry Reed, expressed confidence in the positive outcome for the White House: "I think we will get the necessary 60 votes."
At the moment, according to the estimates of the Associated Press, the senator's 34 support the resolution, and 32 are against it. All members of the Senate are 100 people, not counting the Vice President of the United States, who is the head of the upper house of Congress.
As for the House of Representatives, here, according to estimates of “AP”, out of 435 members of the House, about half of them publicly expressed their opinion. Only 30 people consider military action justified.
The House of Representatives is likely to vote after the September 16.
Corr. ITAR-TASS recalls that the resolution proposed by Obama and authorizing the use of military force against Syria, was submitted to the Senate for consideration last Friday. Previously, she received with a small majority the approval of the relevant Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs.
In accordance with the text of the resolution, 60 days are allocated for the operation in Syria since the adoption of the resolution. The term may be extended by 30 days. In this case, a ban on the use of US ground forces.
The purpose of the strikes on Syria, according to the document, is to contribute to "deterring the future use of weapons of mass destruction by the Syrian government." The strikes themselves must be delivered "on legitimate military targets in Syria."
A similar draft resolution has been submitted to the House of Representatives.
Obama could not apply for sanction to the legislators. In accordance with the Law on Military Powers of 1973, the President has the right to use troops abroad for 60 days without declaring war on a foreign state.
According to correspondent ITAR-TASS Dmitry ZlodorevThe US president met with a group of Republican senators on Sunday evening. Coupled with Vice President Joseph Biden, the head of state at dinner tried to convince lawmakers to support his proposed resolution on Syria.
The menu consisted of Italian dishes. According to the White House, six members of the Republican faction participated in the discussion.
Sources in the Senate told reporters that on Tuesday, Obama plans to arrive on Capitol Hill to meet with Democrats. On the same day, he will address the nation.
According to CNN, 100 senators from 25 are ready to support the resolution, 20 reject it, and 55 have not decided. In the House of Representatives from 435, the 24 legislators are “for”, 123 are “against”, the rest are thinking.
Obama's subordinates have already launched an advertising campaign.
As Andrei Rezchikov writes ("Sight"), The Obama administration is launching a campaign to promote hostilities. This was announced by a high-ranking representative of the White House, who was aboard the aircraft of the President of the United States taking off from St. Petersburg.
He recalled that US permanent representative to the UN, Samantha Power, spoke on Friday at the Washington Center for American progress with a call to support military actions.
On Sunday, the head of the US presidential administration, Denis McDonagh, spoke on several talk shows of American TV channels with stories about why a strike on Syria is needed. On Tuesday, he will meet with the Democratic faction of the House of Representatives.
A speech by Susan Rice, presidential adviser on national security, is also expected.
Obama himself in a weekly televised address to citizens was the last to explain that the military operation in Syria is in the national interest of the United States: “We are not talking about an intervention with an indefinite period. It will not be a new Iraq or Afghanistan. There will be no American ground military operation. Any actions that we take will be limited in time and scope and are aimed at preventing the Syrian government from once again poisoning its own people with gas, reducing its ability to do so. ” According to the president, the use of chemical weapons in Syria forces the United States to act, because otherwise such weapons "can be used more than once." “Toxic agents can fall into the hands of terrorists, and some countries will conclude that they can use such weapons themselves. All this is a serious threat to our national security, ”Obama said, adding that he“ does not intend to drag the United States into another war. ”
The administration’s efforts to convince public opinion and win support for lawmakers remind A. Rezchikov because Obama’s initiative to bomb Syria is not supported even in those counties of the country where a significant part of the population is connected with the army and defense industry.
Smirked McCain. The hawk senator’s meeting with US citizens turned into a few uncomfortable moments for the politician, reports "RT".
At a meeting between McCain and the electorate in Prescott, one voter said: “You lie to the Americans about chemical weapons in Syria. We Americans know that part of the responsibility for this lies with our government. There is strong evidence, even a video, from which it becomes clear that this is the work of al-Qaida.
McCain refused to respond to such accusations, saying that it was "below his dignity."
A resident of Phoenix (Arizona) Jomana Hadid, a Syrian by birth (by the way, who had previously supported McCain), explained to the senator that the atrocities in Syria are being committed by all parties to the conflict. Syrian refused to agree with the statement of the politician that “there is not a single correct scenario in the Syrian issue”.
"Now it is necessary to ban Saudi Arabia and Iran to support the parties to the Syrian conflict," - said the meeting participant. Jomana Hadid is confident that this can be done through bilateral negotiations and diplomacy, and not bombs, as the United States plans.
Hearing such an offer, McCain grinned.
Then Jomana said that the militants killed her 18-year-old cousin. According to her, the Syrians do not fight against the army of Bashar Assad, this is done by mercenaries from all over the world.
A famous poker player has found the right card. He thanked Jomana Hadid for “so passionate performance” and added: “All I can tell you is that I, too, was in Syria. I also know the people who are fighting there. I met them, I know them, and I know who they are. I also know Syria well and understand that this is a modern society. This is not the nation that would accept foreign fighters. But Bashar Assad is none other than a ruthless butcher. ”
"I met them, I know them, and I know who they are." This replica deserves a special comment, add on my own.
At one time, the Internet went around a photo in which Senator McCain was captured next to Syrian "fighters for democracy." Later it turned out: these bearded guys are kidnappers of people. But here signature to the photo in his album: “An important meeting with brave fighters in Syria who risk their lives for the sake of freedom and need our help.”
Later, representatives of McCain said that he did not know these people when he agreed to the photo. And now we will re-read McCain's remark: “I also know the people who are fighting there. I met with them, I know them, and I know who they are. ”
Kill as many Christians as possible. Naowaf Ibrahim ("Voice of Russia") talked about the fact that on September 5, the formation of the Syrian opposition tried to seize the town of Maalyulya, which was mostly populated by Christians (60 km from Damascus). The correspondent of Voice of Russia was able to contact eyewitness Waile Malas.
Government forces repulsed the attack, but the militants related to Dzhebhat al-Nusra and Al-Qaeda managed to gain a foothold in the surrounding heights.
This is what Vail Malas said:
“I stayed with my relatives in Maaloule and met with monks and nuns when terrorists“ Dzhebhat al-Nusra ”and other armed groups rushed into the city. They captured the oldest first female monastery of the Holy Equal-to-the-Apostles Thekla, the monastery of the Holy Prophet Elijah, and a tourist hotel. After they began to destroy buildings and desecrate shrines. Most monks and nuns kicked out, some were captured. Several priests killed. All crosses, chandeliers and other church articles, which represent some material value, are stolen. The rest burned.
Now these two monasteries are occupied by militant snipers, because they are on high ground. In addition, we noticed some strange weapons in the militants that we had never seen before, I could not even describe it. ”
Now these two monasteries are occupied by militant snipers, because they are on high ground. In addition, we noticed some strange weapons in the militants that we had never seen before, I could not even describe it. ”
The witness drew attention to the fact that in the city the militants began to check the passports of people. As soon as they saw that a person had a Christian name - they shot him in the head.
Meanwhile, John Kerry ...
Doublethink in action. How do they write Nadezhda Ermolaeva and Evgeny Shestakov ("Russian newspaper"), an unexpected statement was made by the US Secretary of State. "Interfax" reported that at a press conference in Paris, the head of the US Foreign Ministry confirmed that his country "can agree that the discussion of the Syrian problem resumed in the Security Council."
Such a turn of events, according to D. Kerry, is possible after the report of the UN inspectors on the results of the investigation into the use of chemical weapons in Syria. Quote from the speech of the Secretary of State:
"The United States does not rule out that they may find the strength to return to an attempt to resolve the Syrian issue at the table, and not at the cruise missile control console."
At the same time, the authors of the article note, it does not follow from Kerry’s statements that the United States is stopping the launched campaign mechanism. At the press conference, Kerry clearly commented on the footage shown on the American TV that captured the effects of the chemical attack near Damascus. Thus, the US government convinces the American people of the need to use military force.
Journalists say that the White House’s refusal to support Obama’s military plans influenced the softening of the White House’s position. The EU foreign ministers in Vilnius came to the conclusion that before starting military actions against Damascus, it would be good to await the conclusions of the UN inspectors.
It seems, let us add, Obama’s attempts to restore the shaken “authority” of the United States with the help of the mentioned cruise missiles stumbled not only on opposition from the EU, but also from the entire world community. The whole planet points to America: leave your rockets at home. Obama understands geopolitics only as following the interests of the military-industrial complex, for which another war is needed just as big clients are for the bank, but this approach is outdated. The world has seen enough of the American "democratic" wars. Without Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, the reaction of the world community could be different. The “Blue of the World” and its election sponsors will have to get used to the new world order, which, sadly enough for Washington, is not formed according to its scenario.
Nevertheless, the immediate subordinates of the “dove of peace” continue to speak not only about the “table”, but also about the “console”.
As transmits ITAR-TASS, the US Secretary of State said that "the evidence speaks for itself," responding to a request from journalists to comment on an interview with the Syrian President, who reiterated his non-involvement in chemical attacks in the Damascus area. This was reported by Reuters.
Kerry did not even clarify what evidence he had in mind.
The leader of American television channels "PBS" and "CBS" Charles Rose talked with the Syrian leader. In an interview, Assad demanded that the United States provide evidence that it was his supporters who used 21 August chemical weapons.
They will not agree? On the sidelines of the G-20 summit, President Obama met with the Russian president. The leaders of the two states, apparently, agreed with each other to disagree. Phil Black, a correspondent for CNN, told what was achieved at the summit negotiations, reports "InoTV" with reference to CNN International.
CNN correspondent said: "... President Putin actually called it a draw. He said that ... after a heated discussion at dinner, opinions, according to his idea, were divided roughly in half: half supported military intervention in any form in the near future, and half against or at least worried that actions would be taken without a mandate UN Security Council.
This is significant for President Putin. Russia is the main opponent of military intervention in the international arena, and now Putin can point out that he is not alone and that other countries, other leaders share his concern ... ”
In addition, Black noted: “... They both report that they had approximately 20-minute talks on the conference fields. And both describe this meeting in roughly the same way, using the word "constructive." President Obama also said that they spoke frankly and bluntly. According to Obama, he admitted to Putin that he did not expect to convince, to persuade him. And President Putin said that they had listened to each other, but did not reach agreement on the issue of chemical weapons.
However, they agreed that they would have to continue to work with each other and that they would eventually have to find some kind of diplomatic solution to the conflict in Syria, since this is the only way to resolve it. They did not state exactly how they intend to achieve this, and this is unlikely to be achieved in the near future. However, they said that the foreign ministers of their countries will continue to meet and work on this issue. ”
Putin promised to help Syria. Russia will help Syria in the event of an external military strike on this country, said the President of the Russian Federation, notes Ilona Yarosh ("Voice of Russia").
“Will we help Syria? We will, ”Putin said at a press conference following the G20 summit. And he added: “And now we are helping, we are supplying weapons, cooperating in the economic sphere, I hope, there will be more cooperation in the humanitarian sphere, including in the supply of humanitarian aid to support those people, civilians who find themselves in a very difficult situation in country. "
Answering the question of which country could become the next victim of foreign intervention, Putin said: “I don’t want to even think that another country will be subjected to some kind of external aggression.”
Assad's secret weapon - Russian ships? Patrol ship of the Black Sea fleet "Savvy" will be sent to the coast of Syria on September 12-14, reports "RG" with reference to RIA "News".
Earlier it became known that the large landing ship of the Black Sea Fleet “Nikolay Filchenkov” will deliver cargo to Syria. September 17 in the area of the eastern Mediterranean missile cruiser arrives "Moscow". On September 29, two ships of the Black Sea Fleet will arrive in the Syrian coast area: the rocket boat Ivanovets and the small rocket ship Shtil.
One of the Russian warships, notes CNN USA, may be Assad's secret weapon. Tom Forman, a CNN correspondent, talked about it with retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Rick Francona. The interview was published in Russian. "InoTV".
The journalist said that “these Russian ships came here. Why is this last ship important? ”
A retired lieutenant colonel, a military analyst by profession, replied:
“They thereby introduced the newest platform of electronic intelligence. This vessel is equipped with various sensors and can track electronics and communications. It has its own radar and sonar. Therefore, he does have the ability to track the movement of American ships in the Mediterranean. They can also monitor and warn about missile launches. ”
The analyst further noted that the Russians can fix not only the launch of a cruise missile, but also preparations for launch. "Consequently, they may have more than one hour to warn." And it should be assumed, concluded the lieutenant colonel, that they agreed with the Syrians on the early warning regime.
In addition to this material - a note from the portal "Telegraphist".
In accordance with international laws, Russia can shoot down any missiles that can fly in dangerous proximity to the ships of the Russian Navy, or if the captain decides that the missile can threaten the ship. Write about this Arab media.
If this happens on the high seas outside the territorial waters of a certain state against which a military attack is taking place, the Russian Navy does not de jure become a party to the conflict.
True, experts say, Russia will not do so, fearing indirectly participating in the conflict. In an era when one of the strongest powers openly violates international law, such indirect participation can result in a global conflict.
About the movement of nuclear warheads. A high-ranking source in the US Armed Forces confirmed that the movement of nuclear warheads from Dyce Air Base to the East Coast of the United States is in full swing. Transportations are carried out secretly, transfers Mixednews.ru with reference to storyleak.com.
According to the source, the Daes air force commander allowed the transfer of nuclear ammunition to an unknown place, which is reportedly in South Carolina. Where they are taken away and possibly involved. This is of particular interest also due to the worsening situation in Syria. In addition, the Dies base has repeatedly denied the presence of nuclear warheads.
Obama's daughter threatens to kidnap and rape. Ali-Reza Fororgan, adviser to Ayatollah Khamenei on strategy issues, published in his blog threats to the United States and to Obama personally, reports navoine.ru.
In the event of a US strike on Syria within 21 hours, he said, relatives and children of US ministers, ambassadors, and high-ranking officials would be abducted around the world. After another 18 hours of video filming with amputation of their limbs will be posted on the Internet. Ali-Reza Foroan writes:
"Obama, if you are a bastard, then know that there are other bastards in the world that can attack Sasha ... and anything can happen there."
In the Farsi version, he frankly states that Obama’s daughter will be abducted by someone from her circle and then raped.
Special American warning for Israel. The United States will notify Israel before the attack on Syria. This was reported by one of the Israeli government officials, reports MIGnews.com.
Israel fears that it will fall under rocket fire as soon as the United States strikes at strategic targets in Syria.
The Jewish state will receive a preliminary notice of the start of the attack "within a few hours." So said an Israeli official who has close contacts with Washington told Reuters.
New Turkish military base. The Turkish Armed Forces built a new base on top of Mount Kel, near the Syrian port city of Latakia, reports "RT".
According to The Daily News, the new base is located near the place where Syrian troops shot down a Turkish plane in 2012.
In recent days, in the provinces bordering Syria, there have been many more Turkish soldiers. Tanks, military trucks and armored personnel carriers were pulled at a checkpoint near the southeastern city of Sanliurfe. And the ships of the Turkish coast guard are directed to the coast of Samandag.
Egyptian news. Egyptian soldiers blew all underground tunnels through which terrorists moved to the Sinai Peninsula from Gaza. Reports about it "RG" with reference to ITAR-TASS.
During the operation in the north of the peninsula 300 armed extremists were detained.
As transmits ITAR-TASS With reference to France Press, based on the Sinai Peninsula, the Islamist group Ansar Beit al-Mukaddas claimed responsibility for the attack on the Minister of the Interior of Egypt, Muhammad Ibrahim. This is stated in the statement of extremists.
ITAR-TASS recalls that on September 5, on the route of the Minister’s motorcade, on Mustafa Nakhas Street in the metropolitan area of Madinat-Nasr, a car bomb was blown up. As a result of the attack, twenty people were injured. The Minister was not injured.
Marseilles nightmare. France was shocked by the loud murder in Marseilles. Adrien Anigo, son of Olympique Marseille football club’s director, was shot in the head, reports MIGnews.com.
Anigo has already become the fifteenth victim of banditry in Marseille since the beginning of 2013. Police believe that in the city there is a war of factions for the redistribution of the market for marijuana and "soft" drugs.
The Minister of the Interior of France acknowledged that problems of unemployment and poverty are intertwined in Marseille. There are representatives of the community of immigrants from North African countries.
Gangster clashes are held using a Kalashnikov assault rifle. A large number of such small arms appeared on the territory of France after the end of the Balkan war.
"Dad wears a dress." In books for French kids, developed in accordance with the new French educational program "Theory of Gender", kids can stumble upon interesting offers. Politikus.ru, ссылаясь на annatubten.livejournal.com, leads a few of them.
“Does Mademoiselle Zizi have a penis?”, “Dad wears a dress,” “I have two dads,” “New Bill's dress.”
Sexual interrogation concerns children from six years. Experiments are underway in ten regions of France.
Tajikistan: Russians will learn Russian. The head of Tajikistan, Emomali Rakhmon, invited Russian teachers. They were promised a decent salary and housing. Tajikistan needs teachers of Russian and other subjects, but for them to be taught in Russian, the president of the country said.
As reported "Vesti" With reference to Interfax, Rossotrudnichestvo developed a program that will be used to help develop education, and especially the teaching of the Russian language in the post-Soviet republics.
The head of Tajikistan, speaking at the Day of Knowledge, said that without knowledge of English and Russian languages, Tajikistan would be isolated from the whole world. There are fewer 50 thousand Russian speakers left in the republic, and their number continues to decrease, Rakhmon noted. At the same time, he said that the better the citizens of Tajikistan would know Russian, the better they would be treated in Russia.
NATO continues to kill civilians. In the Afghan province of Kunar, 15 people died as a result of an airstrike by NATO forces, nine of them civilians, including women and children. Reports about it "RG" with reference to Interfax.
According to preliminary data, the blow was struck by a UAV.
The shooting of the former girlfriend Kim Jong-un - a duck? According to Oleg Kiryanov ("Russian newspaper"), reports that a “pornographic video” appeared on the Internet, because of which the former lover of the DPRK leader Kim Jong-un was shot, were contested by users of the World Wide Web. The clip, referred to by the media, has been freely available for three years. This casts doubt on the whole story of the "shooting": allegedly ex-girlfriend Kim Jong-un was shot in the DPRK due to filming in porn.
On YouTube, the video is freely available as Elvis Presley's Aloha'Oe (in Korean transliteration) at least from September 21 on 2010 of the year, that is, under Kim Jong-il. If this is the video that has enraged the current leader of the DPRK, then it is difficult to imagine that he endured the “immorality” for three years.
In addition, as noted by users, on the Internet enough of the same video with dancing girls from the DPRK. So it is obvious that the North Korean authorities have known about such dances for a long time.
How Big Brother spied on Brazil. As transmits correspondent RIA Novosti Oleg Vyazmitinov, the Brazilian state-owned petroleum company Petrobras was subject to industrial espionage by the United States. This is evidenced by secret documents promulgated by Edward Snowden, according to the website of the TV channel "Globo".
The documents confirm that the American intelligence services conducted intelligence activities against Petrobras.
Earlier, Brazilian media reported that US intelligence agencies were following phone messages and network correspondence of the presidents of Brazil and Mexico. The NSA also intercepted telephone calls and emails from Brazilian citizens.
On the margins of the G20 summit, Barack Obama has promised to provide Dilma Rousseff with official explanations for September 11.
103 organizations from 33 countries supported the Russian law banning the promotion of homosexuality among children. This is stated on the site Demographia.ru.
More than a hundred organizations signed a statement published on the eve of the G20 summit in support of a law recently passed in Russia prohibiting the promotion of non-traditional sexual relationships among children. Among those who supported the statement are the World Congress of Families and the European Association of Large Families. The document was initiated by the Spanish organization Professionals for Ethics.
The statement expresses serious concern in connection with the massive attacks by the adherents of the interests of “sexual minorities”, a number of foreign states and international structures that Russia faced after the adoption of the law.
It is emphasized that the law protects the rights of children and parents, recognized by international treaties. According to the organizations that supported the document, “Russia protects genuine and universally recognized human rights from artificially fabricated“ values ”that are aggressively propagated in many modern societies.”
Obama spoke with Russian human rights activists. Before leaving Russia, the US president met with representatives of Russian NGOs in one of the hotels in St. Petersburg. About it RIA News" reported in the american delegation.
US Ambassador to Moscow Michael McFall and National Security Advisor Susan Rice took part in the conversation.
Among the participants of the meeting were Pavel Chikov (“Agora”), Evgeny Chirikov (movement in defense of the Khimki forest), Elena Milashina (“Novaya Gazeta”), etc.
Obama told representatives of Russian NGOs about the beginning of his political career as a public activist.
The head of the Agora organization, Pavel Chikov, said that at a meeting with the US president, the situation with human rights in the Russian Federation, the situation of non-profit organizations, environmental issues and homosexual rights were discussed.
"InoTV", referring to The Daily Beast, talks about Obama’s possible reaction to such a small NPO phenomenon.
“Most likely, President Obama was upset when he saw the size of a group of human rights defenders at the Crown Plaza Hotel in St. Petersburg. There were only nine of them to meet, ”writes Anna Nemtsova in an article for The Daily Beast.
In her opinion, Russian activists understood that the American president was unable to “reset” relations neither with the Russian authorities nor with society. They believe that Obama, who endorsed the hunt for whistleblowers in his country, is unlikely to be a good ally in the fight for human rights in Russia.
Evgenia Chirikova said that she came to the meeting to talk about the issues facing Obama. In her opinion, the threat of impeachment is nothing compared to the deaths that will be on his conscience if he decides to strike at Syria.
Thus, we add from ourselves, even human rights activists have turned away from Obama. The bearded man from the White House is completely confused about human rights and their implementation.
