They made it clear. The US government will not stop supporting the Syrian opposition. This was announced yesterday by John Kerry during a press conference in Jerusalem, where he arrived from Geneva after talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, writes "Russian newspaper" with reference to RIA "News".

“By itself, the elimination of chemical weapons will not do all the work. We understand this, and this is not all that we are going to do, ”said Kerry.

“We also make it clear that our support for the opposition will continue unabated,” he concluded.

Al Qaeda makes chemical weapons for Syrian militants. During searches of militants linked to the Syrian opposition, poison gas was found that Al Qaeda was producing in Iraqi laboratories and then sent to Turkey. Evidence of this is given in a secret document received by WND from the US Intelligence Community, reports "Voice of Russia".

On the way to Turkey, the chemical weapons party was intercepted. The security services of Turkey discovered a two-liter cylinder, which allegedly contained poison gas, as well as weapons and documents. The find was made during a search of militants linked to al-Qaeda and Al-Nusra Front.

McCain spoke about the “goodwill of the Russian people” and decided to write to Pravda. Thanks to the agreement reached in Geneva on the Syrian chemical weapons, Russia has occupied a position in the Middle East that it has not had since 1970's. This opinion was expressed by Senator John McCain, reports correspondent ITAR-TASS Andrey Surzhansky.

Yesterday, in an interview with NBC, Mr. McCain criticized the US-Russia agreement on Syria, because it "gave Russia a position in the Middle East, which they did not have with 70's."

McCain also said: “We now rely on the goodwill of the Russian people in case Bashar Assad violates this agreement. I firmly believe that this is a very big game, given his (Asad's) track record. ”

Among other news relating to the shocking senator is the news that this senator set out to respond to Putin’s article on Syria, previously published in The New York Times. He will answer with an article in the Russian newspaper Pravda, reports Interfax with reference to the BBC.

It turns out that Mr. McCain considered Putin’s publication insulting. In addition, he was "extremely skeptical" about the Russian proposal for Bashar Assad to abandon chemical weapons, but is willing to wait and see what happens.

Learning about the intention of McCain to publish in Russia, G. Zyuganov spoke. The leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation is ready to publish an article by an American senator only if he changes his position on Syria. “If McCain is ready to reconsider his views and speak in an article for the peaceful settlement of the conflict, which the Communist Party constantly advocates, then we are ready to provide him with not only the Pravda pages, but also the opportunity to publish in our other party media, including the central party website”, - quotes Zyuganov press service of the Communist Party.

And the chief editor of Pravda, State Duma deputy Boris Komotsky said that he did not know about the senator’s intention to publish in his publication: “I was surprised to find out that Senator John McCain was conducting negotiations with Pravda about publishing his response to Putin. Nothing about the intentions of the Republican senator did not reach us. ”

By the way, while McCain is going to write to Pravda, another famous American has already written - in Kommersant.

Maria Efimova, Olga Kuznetsova, Sergey Strokan report that the “symmetrical answer” to Vladimir Putin was given by congressman Steve Israel, who sent his “Open letter to the people of Russia” to “Kommersant”. This congressman calls not to abandon the operation in Syria and does not agree with the President of the Russian Federation on the issue of "American exclusivity."

The “open letter to the people of Russia” describes Putin’s initiative as a “positive step” and calls for giving a chance for diplomacy. Meanwhile, the US Congressman warns against premature euphoria about the prospects for a peaceful solution to the problem of Syrian chemical weapons.

According to Mr. Israel, in case of failure of political efforts, the plan of operation against Damascus cannot be discounted. There are three reasons for this: the repeated use of chemical weapons by Damascus; the need to prevent agents from falling into the hands of the Syrian rebels; the task is to send a signal to those forces that "ignore international laws." The latter include Iran, North Korea and Hezbollah.

“Kommersant” journalists contacted Steve Israel and asked how he assesses the chances of finding a diplomatic way out of the crisis after Lavrov’s initiative, Kerry, in Geneva. The congressman expressed the hope that the "Russian proposal will work."

The article notes that the congressman directly disagreed with Vladimir Putin in his address to the Russians, who condemned “American exclusivity”. Mr. Israel said: “As an American, I really value the exclusivity of my country.”

The Kommersant article provides another American response to Putin.

In the comment “The Answer of the American People to Putin,” The Washington Post columnist Dana Milbenck warns the Russian leader that his arguments about the “exclusivity” of Americans will not work on the latter. Dana Milbenk points out: “Americans are no better than others, but the American experience is unique - exceptional, and this is what created the strongest economy and army in the world, which was often used for good purposes. When you question American exclusivity, you will find some support among all of us - liberals and conservatives, Democrats and Republicans, pigeons and hawks. ”

Here, then, how? "... the army of the world, which was often used for good purposes"? Blessed are those who believe, let us add on our own.

Convenient expert. At a hearing in the US Senate Committee on International Affairs, John McCain referred to an “expert on Syria,” a woman who, as it turned out, turned out to be a fake doctor of science, reports "RT" with reference to The Huffington Post. In addition to McCain, 26-year-old Elizabeth O'Beigie referred to the meeting and John Kerry.

Elizabeth O'Beigi, having recently appeared on American TV, introduced herself as an expert on Syria. Her credibility jumped as soon as John McCain and John Kerry began to refer to her work during a congressional discussion on the possibility of military intervention in Syria.

O'Beigi argued that the war in Syria was unleashed by non-Islamists and not al-Qaeda. It is clear that for McCain and Kerry, supporting the intervention, such a "conclusion" of O'Beyghi was at hand.

However, many political analysts allowed themselves to doubt the correctness of O'Beigi. Charles Lister, lead analyst at IHS Jane's Terrorism & Insurgency Center, criticized her work through Twitter. Kerry told Congress about O'Beyghi’s experience, and journalist Janine Giovanni suggested that the young researcher exaggerated her Syrian experience:

“Everyone who works in Syria as correspondents or researchers are incredibly cautious people. We try to protect each other. Many were shocked when the 26-year-old Ph.D., the so-called expert on Syria, who, as it turned out, had never been to Syria and about whom no one had ever heard, appeared on CNN and other channels. ”


Finally, it turned out that O'Beygi not only has no experience in Syria, but is not a doctor of science either.

According to Pravda.ruO'Beigi, whose editorial commentary in the Wall Street Journal was quoted by Kerry and McCain, was fired after lied about a doctoral degree. This was written by the newspaper "Politico".

The official statement of the institution where she worked from September 2012, right up until she was fired, is: "The Institute for Military Studies (ISW) found out that O'Beigi never actually awarded a degree at Georgetown University."

However, we are not talking about the fact that the “expert” has forged a degree. In an interview with Politico, she stated that she defended her thesis and waited for confirmation of a degree from the university.

ISW founder Kimberly Kagan told Politico that this was “a very sad situation” and immediately assured that she was ready to subscribe to every O'Beigi comment on Syria: “Everything was thoroughly checked, all her materials are trustworthy.”

As reported by Dmitry Kiselev and Anastasia Popova ("Vesti"), Elizabeth O'Beigi is associated with the Syrian opposition and received money for the work.

“It turns out that the terrorists published in the Western media through their agent, senior analyst Elizabeth O'Beigi, the versions of what is happening in Syria that they need to draw the US into its war. Elizabeth O'Beigi is fired, but the reputation of the simple-minded gentlemen who are going to fight, stained. "


One hundred thousand bearded men. The number of fighters fighting in Syria against Bashar Assad is about 100 thousands. About half of them are radical Islamists. The information about this data is provided by The Telegraph, citing the report of IHS Jane’s research center, "Lenta.ru".

Around 10, thousands of people are members of the most radical factions of jihadists, the most influential of whom are the Front of Nusra and the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.

From 30 to 35, thousands of people are fighters who share the ideology of Islamic fundamentalism, but focus on promoting his ideas within Syria rather than international struggle.

About 30 thousands belong to the moderate Islamist groups.

And only a relatively small part of the rebels (25-30 thousand) refers to the so-called secular opposition.

At the same time, Assad's opponents are divided. Over a thousand groups are fighting against the government.

As noted by "RG" With reference to RIA “Novosti”, the author of the study, Charles Lister, said: “The illegal armed formations are dominated by groups that at least share the ideas of the Islamists in this conflict. The idea that this conflict is driven by secular opposition groups is not justified. ”

Report or montage? UN chief Ban Ki-moon received a report of chemical weapons experts in Syria and will present it to the UN Security Council today. This tells correspondent RIA "Novosti" Ivan Zakharchenko with reference to the UN press service.

"The report of the UN mission to investigate allegations of the use of chemical weapons in the Syrian Arab Republic has been submitted to the Secretary General," the report says.

In the morning of September 16 (in Moscow - in the evening) Ban Ki-moon “will inform the UN Security Council about the report during closed consultations,” the press service informs.

The text of the report will be posted on the website of the UN Office for Disarmament Affairs.

Interestingly, two days earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov expressed the opinion that the frames with a report by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on chemical weapons in Syria and assessments of Assad's actions are montage. This was reported by 14 September "RG" with reference to ITAR-TASS.

“I told Kofi Annan that at the height of the negotiations we suddenly saw reports that Ban Ki-Moon had told some women that the report of the UN inspectors about the investigation in Guta would be presented on Monday, but it (the message) also said that chemical weapons have been used, and immediately there are cadres where it is said that Bashar Asad has committed crimes against humanity more than once, ”comrade Lavrov explained. - Then it turned out that it was a montage, but everything was shown through respected channels. If this is not some ridiculous accident, if this is not a misunderstanding, then this is an attempt to thwart our meeting in Geneva. She failed, and thank God. "

No choice. The destruction of the Syrian chemical weapons by the middle of the 2014 year is a feasible task. This opinion was expressed in an interview with the correspondent. ITAR-TASS head of the American Association for Arms Control Daryl Kimball.

As the correspondent ITAR-TASS Andrey Surzhansky, in the text of the framework agreement reached following the meeting in Geneva of Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry, states that Russia and the United States have set a goal to "take out and destroy all types of chemical weapons and equipment" from Syria, having finished this the operation "in the first half of 2014 of the year".

The American specialist said: “Considering that in their agreement of 14 September, both sides state a common understanding about the size and structure of the Syrian chemical weapons arsenals, and also that, according to the agreement, the destruction of chemical weapons may require the removal of the main part of chemical substances and ammunition, I consider it feasible and realistic to complete this process by the middle of 2014. ”

According to the expert, “it is still difficult to assess the scale of financial expenses” associated with this operation. “I believe that the total amount is likely to be less than 100 million US dollars,” Kimball figured.

And who will pay? The expert recalled that the US Department of State has a fund “intended for such operations”. In this case, Kimball suggested that the bulk of the costs will still be covered from the budget of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. He does not exclude that Russia will also contribute.

The article notes that Mr. Kimball believes the US-Russian agreements are an "unprecedented breakthrough."

The first test of Damascus’s readiness to cooperate, he said, will be the transfer of a list of chemical weapons available to Syria. It will take a week.

“Assad may try to hide part of his stocks, but it will be difficult for him to do this during the inspection process, which will be assisted by American and Russian intelligence, informing him of the nature, location and size of the Syrian chemical weapons stocks,” the expert said. “Besides, if Assad does not cooperate and does not transfer his entire arsenal, he will face the consequences.”

According to Kimball, Assad has no choice but to cooperate with the world community.

The opposition showed a "moderate Islamist." According to "Russian newspaper" With reference to Interfax, moderate Islamist Ahmad Tume was elected the “interim prime minister” of Syria. This decision was made by the national coalition of opposition and revolutionary forces.

Voting on this issue was held in Turkey, in Istanbul. The candidacy was supported by 75 of the coalition representatives 97.

48-year-old Ahmad Tume - comes from the eastern Syrian province of Deir-ez-Zor. At home, he was in prison for anti-government activities.

Lebanese militants female. According to the Lebanese media, extremists operating in the north of the country are preparing militant women for the war in Syria on the side of the “Front of Nusra”, reports "RT".

The head of the women’s detachments is the closest one of the Syrian warlords. Around 20 women, whom she managed to recruit, are now undergoing combat training in the camp.

Price Libyan "democracy." In Libya - the deepest crisis of the oil industry. The industry is almost paralyzed. At the enterprises - protests and strikes. According to The New York Times, oil production declined by 90%.

As the "RT", Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan announced the issuance of a warrant for the arrest of the instigators of the strike of oil workers. However, the army and the police are powerless.

The crisis began in the summer. Armed groups seized major export terminals, claiming the national oil company was mired in corruption. The rebels demanded at the same time the autonomy of the eastern regions. The riots spread to the western part of the country. Today, strikers are demanding higher wages and a change of leaders. Not only oil exports, but also electricity generation has declined in the country. This led to massive outages.

Meanwhile, oil is the basis of the Libyan economy. Earlier, “black gold” accounted for 95% of the country's exports and 75% of government revenues, and now only 10% of the possible production is generated.

“Libya is on the verge of disaster. The joy of the Arab spring turned out to be very short here, as in most other countries, ”said Badr Jafar, head of the United Arab Emirates oil and gas company Crescent Petroleum.

“The situation in the country is very dangerous. Each village is ruled by its own militia, and there is virtually no central authority, ”said Dragan Vukovic, head of the oil company“ Mediterranean International ”, which recently left the Libyan market.

All Greece is on strike. In Greece, September 16 begins a week of mass strikes on the eve of the arrival of the troika mission of international lenders: representatives of the EU, the European Central Bank and the IMF. They will have to evaluate the course of structural reforms in the country, transmit "Vesti" with reference to ITAR-TASS.

The Federation of Secondary Education will hold 5-day rallies in protest against the possible dismissal of teachers in the public sector reform.

Employees of insurance pension funds, the Organization of Employment of Workers and the Services of the Ministry of Labor, Social Insurance and Provision join the strikes.

The High Council of the Public Sector Trade Union (ADEDY) will hold an 18-19 in September on an 48-hour strike against government policies. September 18, in solidarity, is organized by the leading trade union federation of the private sector, the General Confederation of Labor in Greece, in a gesture of solidarity.

ADEDI protests against the “policy of transferring to the labor reserve with the prospect of dismissing state personnel, which the government is conducting under pressure from the troika in order to destroy the public sector and the socially oriented form of the state.”

"Vesti" remind that several thousand civil servants had previously been transferred to the labor reserve. Until the end of September, 12500 people are planned to be transferred to the reserve. About 4 thousands of them will be permanently fired. Reserved civil servants are required to agree to a new job in the public sector services where there are vacancies. Otherwise in a few months they will be among the unemployed.

Iceland to the European Union will not go. Iceland decided to refuse to join the EU, writes "Russian newspaper" with reference to ITAR-TASS.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of this country dismissed ten negotiating groups, a consultation committee and a national delegation that for four years dealt with the possible accession of Iceland to the EU.

Foreign Minister Gunnar Bragi Svensson noted that the negotiations were at an impasse. In addition, the ruling coalition of the country against joining the EU.

Spain will not let go of Catalonia. The Spanish government refused to Catalonia in a referendum on self-determination of the status of an autonomous community and the possible exit from the country. According to "RG" With reference to RIA Novosti, the answer to the head of the region, Arthur Masu, was sent by the Prime Minister of Spain, Mariano Rajoy.

“The ties that unite us cannot be broken without the greatest financial losses,” the head of the cabinet said.

The WG recalls that in January, the Catalan Parliament adopted a declaration of sovereignty, planning a referendum later (in 2014). However, in May, the Spanish Constitutional Court granted the request of the central government for the suspension of the Catalan declaration.

The article also notes that Catalonia accounts for about a quarter of Spain’s GDP.

In Britain, legalize marijuana? According to experts, marijuana can enrich the UK: bring about 1,25 billion. £ per year. Only a reduction in the cost of jail dealers will save the British 300 £ million, and this is only a 1 year of cannabis in the consumer market, writes "RT" with reference to The Guardian.

Stephen Padney, professor of economics at the University of Essex and one of the authors of the study, is confident that the benefits of legalizing a soft drug are obvious. Padney and his colleagues set out to calculate all the factors that may appear when the marijuana market exits from the shadows.

“As a result of marijuana being brought to the legal market, its production volumes will increase, as well as availability. And as a result, the price for “weed” will significantly decrease, ”the report of the charity foundation“ Beckley ”, which provides research support, says.

“In the period of economic crisis, when the state has to resort to budget cuts, it makes sense to look at additional sources of income for the state treasury. In addition, cannabis, being “in the shadows”, brings money to criminals who can supply goods of dubious quality, ”says Amanda Fielding, director of the foundation.

Well, it is quite logical, we add from ourselves that the British are following the Americans, who also legalize “light” drugs. The case for "heavy": after all, dealers-criminals trade in those. It is only necessary to calculate how much money the budget will save on keeping heroin and cocaine drag dealers, and how much tax the treasury will additionally receive from the open trade in “white medicine”. In times of economic crisis, this money will not be superfluous.

Modernization of the American nuclear arsenal in Belgium. As Igor Dunaevsky writes ("RG"), referring to the Belga news agency, Washington and Brussels concluded an agreement on the renewal of American nuclear weapons located at the Kleine-Brogel military base in Belgium.

According to Hans Christinsen, an expert on nuclear weapons, Belgium and a number of other European NATO member countries storing American nuclear weapons signed agreements with the United States on the deployment of upgraded B2010 thermonuclear bombs in 61 instead of their outdated counterpart. The expert noted that the presence of American nuclear weapons in the territory of European countries will be extended for decades to come.

The Belgian Ministry of Defense declined to comment on this information.

SCO as a leading geopolitical player. According to the newspaper "File-RF", in Bishkek, the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. On this occasion, the newspaper was commented by the editor-in-chief of the magazine National Defense Igor Korotchenko.

“The last summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization showed that now this organization, in which, as you know, the most influential members are Russia and China, is a force that all states and international alliances must reckon with. The SCO claims a universal role in controlling geopolitical processes and ensuring security in the Eurasian space. ”


The expert noted that "neither NATO, nor the United States, nor other players should enter the territory, which the SCO considers to be the area of ​​its geopolitical responsibility." The organization’s efforts, said Korotchenko, are aimed at ensuring that the SCO member states themselves regulate security issues. A signal is given: “Americans are not expected here,” the analyst noted.

“The SCO is becoming increasingly influential and attractive to other countries. The persistent aspiration of Iran, India and Pakistan to join the Organization and formalize membership in it suggests that when working on the principles of its functioning, these principles were correctly defined, that the SCO is called upon to become a real force in the world. Such it becomes before our eyes. "


Expert opinion: The SCO is becoming one of the leading global players.

In the south of Pakistan, a motorcade was destroyed with fuel for NATO troops. As transmits RIA News" with reference to France-Press, at least nine tank trucks with fuel for NATO forces in Afghanistan were destroyed in south-western Pakistan on Sunday evening as a result of an explosion and a subsequent fire.

The incident occurred in the province of Baluchistan, about 45 kilometers from the port of Karachi. According to preliminary data, as a result of the incident no one was hurt.

As RIA Novosti reminds, the movement of cargo columns for NATO troops in Afghanistan through Pakistan was resumed two weeks ago. Previously, for five months, they were not formed due to the constant attacks of militants.

Indian test. India conducted the second test of the Agni-5 ballistic missile. According to "RG" With reference to RIA Novosti, the launch was made on September 15 in 08.43 (07.13 Moscow time) from Wheeler Island in the Bay of Bengal.

Agni-5, capable of carrying a nuclear charge, was first successfully tested in April last year.

This rocket, whose range exceeds 5 thousands of kilometers, can reach Beijing.

"Miss World, go to hell." In Indonesia, they are protesting against the beauty contest "Miss World - 2013", which is being heavily guarded on the island of Bali.

According to the protesters, the event insults Muslims - the message that "a woman is the subject of trade." The main slogan of demonstrators in East Java Province: "Miss World, go to hell." Local police report that some protesters tried to get to Bali, they report "Vesti" with reference to ITAR-TASS.

It is noted that on Wednesday in Jakarta held an alternative beauty contest among Muslim girls. The organizers are going to prove: to be beautiful, it is not necessary to bare the shoulders or arms. Beauties from Indonesia, Bangladesh, Iran and Brunei will also have to compete in reciting the suras from the Koran.

As Vesti reminds, in 2013, Miss World is held for the first time in Southeast Asia. Due to the mass protests, the Indonesian authorities had to reduce the number of venues for the competition and to cancel the defile in bathing suits.

Industrial Zone Kaesong began work. As transmits correspondent RIA "Novosti" Daria Krutov With reference to the Ronhap agency, the joint Kaeson industrial zone, managed by the authorities of South and North Korea, opened on Monday.

A representative of the South Korean government said that 123-50% companies from 60 are ready to start work in the industrial complex. Today, South Korean 820 will go to Kaeson, of which around 400 will stay in the industrial area for the night.

The decision to open the complex was made at the second meeting of the commission on the normalization of the industrial zone, which began on September 10 and ended with the dawn of the next day. Then an agreement was reached that simplifies the movement of South Koreans in the industrial zone: the 10 exits will be opened to allow the South Korean 11 personnel to pass once a day. It is noted that prior to the closure of the technopark in the spring of 2013, personnel were allowed to pass only once a day during certain morning hours.

From now on, the DPRK and South Korea have equal rights to manage the technozone. In late August, Pyongyang and Seoul signed an agreement to form a joint committee responsible for the operation of Kaesong zone. Previously, the DPRK government was in charge of the industrial zone.

News from Fukushima. As Igor Dunaevsky writes ("Russian newspaper"), in the area of ​​the fifth floor of the third unit of the nuclear power plant “Fukushima-1” in Japan, white steam was recorded. As the operator company "TERCO" reported, on the surveillance cameras were visible vapor vapor over the top part of the reactor shell protection.

The exact reasons are not established. According to the preliminary findings of specialists, the steam may be associated with evaporation of rainwater, leakage of water from the pool of the reactor or contact of nitrogen, which is under a protective shell, with air.

Information Agency "Kyodo" reported that the tritium content in the water of the technical well "Fukushima-1" in recent days has increased 23 times. Such a rapid growth of tritium in water indicates, as experts believe, the deep penetration of the contaminated liquid into the soil and its mixing with the groundwater.

Big Brother does not give rest to Brazil. According to Alexander Krasnov ("Voice of Russia"), the Brazilian parliament will form a commission, whose members will visit the Russian Federation and meet with Snowden. The initiator of the trip is Ivan Valente, chairman of PSOL (Party of Socialism and Freedom), deputy of the Chamber of Deputies of the National Congress of Brazil, member of the commission on international relations and national defense. In an interview with the Voice of Russia, he spoke about the purpose of the trip.

“... In the case of Brazil, it has become obvious that citizens are being monitored, their correspondence, email accounts are being hacked. The president of the republic and the state itself are also objects of this espionage. The same applies to large companies (“Petrobras”) of strategic importance to their trade secrets. We see this as the hardest violation of the integrity and sovereignty of Brazil.

During the Senate hearings for which journalist Glenn Greenwald was called, we asked him if the information he received from Snowden was exhaustive, and he said that this was only the tip of the iceberg. Then we concluded that it is necessary to refer directly to the source of this information. ”


Comrade Valente speaks of American espionage as a “global Big Brother” police work.

“The US government has not given us any satisfactory and plausible explanations, and everything speaks in favor of the fact that it will not give in the future. In our understanding, since they will not change their line of behavior, we must protect ourselves.

One of the ways to protect could be getting the maximum possible information from Edward Snowden, and we will ask the Russian government to give us that opportunity. ”


The Brazilian noted that the commission does not intend to make statements on the territory of the Russian Federation and to disclose anything. The purpose of the participants of the commission is to ask Snowden in detail about Brazil.

Fifty million on "transparency." The World Bank Board of Directors approved a loan of $ 50 million for jointly with the Russian government to finance a technical assistance project in the area of ​​public financial management. Its cost is 133,5 million. $. The implementation is designed for four years, reports "RT" with reference to ITAR-TASS.

According to the World Bank, the project should “assist the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation, the Federal Tax Service, the Federal Treasury, the Ministry of Economic Development and the Federal Financial Monitoring Service to increase the transparency and efficiency of public finance management, as well as to form the institutional basis for further improvement of budget efficiency, efficiency and accountability.

Mikhail Rutkowski, Director of the World Bank for Russia, said: “This project directly supports one of the main areas of the World Bank’s Partnership Strategy with the Russian Federation, which is associated with improving the quality and transparency of public administration. In addition, thanks to the project, state investments and services will become more efficient and budget-friendly, which, in turn, will speed up the growth of incomes of people belonging to the lower 40% of the population in terms of income distribution. ”

As the authors of the project point out, its strategic goals “will be achieved by supporting actions on the 4 core areas.” Among them - "improving the economic efficiency of the Russian tax system and improving the quality of services provided by the Federal Tax Service to taxpayers."

The project is supposed to reduce the time that small and medium-sized enterprises spend on calculating and paying taxes, and increase the number of regions that "demonstrate a satisfactory result in terms of managing public finances." At the same time, the project will give Russia the opportunity to increase performance "in terms of budget transparency", as well as to make wider use of "performance indicators in the federal budget to reflect the goals and results of government spending programs."

Joe Biden discovered Neanderthals in the USA. US Vice President Joe Biden called Republicans from the House of Representatives Neanderthals, reports "Lenta.ru" with reference to ABC News.

Biden made a statement about this at a reception in his residence on the anniversary of the adoption of a law to protect women from violence. The law, the draft of which Biden submitted to the Senate in 1990, was signed for a new term in 2013.

According to USA Today, Mr. Biden, speaking of the law, warned that he was going to "say something outrageous." After that, he called "something like a crowd of Neanderthals" members of the Republican majority in the House of Representatives who opposed the signing of the law on the protection of women for a new term.

What were the Neanderthals dissatisfied with?

It turns out that the Republicans did not like the amendments to the text of the law, which extended its effect to the American Indian population, as well as to immigrants and lesbians who were subjected to violence from other women.

"Ribbon" recalls that Biden supports the legalization of same-sex marriage. Republicans traditionally oppose such. However, many of them joined the campaign to legalize "same-sex" marriages.

The review - on the plot “circle” - concludes with the notorious theme of American “exclusivity”.

"Yes, Vladimir, America is exceptional." In the new review of Western newspapers "Inopressa" brought the views of Americans about their "exclusivity."

The British “The Guardian” clarified the circumstances of the appearance of V. Putin’s article in The New York Times. Putin himself prepared the “main content” of the article, after which “his assistants worked out a text,” said Russian Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov.

“Yes, Vladimir, America is exceptional,” Eugene Robinson, the Washington Post correspondent, titled his response.

“Reading Vladimir Putin’s hypocritical article about American politics in Syria, I imagined the Russian president sitting at the keyboard in a charming pink negligee,” writes Robinson, hinting at the Russian police confiscating Putin’s underwear image from an exhibition in St. Petersburg.

"Therefore, when Putin tries to lecture" to the American people and its political leaders "from the position of moral superiority, it cannot be taken seriously," the author says. “As for Syria, the ominous and barbarous government of dictator Bashar Assad would not have lasted a week without generous military supplies to Russia. In the hands of Putin, the blood of tens of thousands of civilians. "

“For me, the concept of exclusivity supports Obama’s strongest argument in favor of a military operation in Syria,” the author says in spite of Putin. “When we see more than 1400 men, women and children dying from poison gas, we don’t tend to turn away.” We ask ourselves if we can do something. We weigh the costs and benefits, the risks and the benefits, and we do what we can. The moral justification for hitting the Assad regime is based on the fact: if the United States does nothing, no one will. ”

“Yes, Mr. Putin, you can call it American exclusivity. Personally, I like it much more than the Russian one, ”Robinson sums up.

According to the American political scientist, President of the Eurasia Group, Jan Bremmer, interviewed by the newspaper “La Stampa”, V. Putin replays B. Obama in the Syrian direction: Putin has everything that Obama lacks.

The president of the Eurasia Group does not hide his admiration:

“A strategy that functions: he wants to keep Assad in power in Damascus, and he succeeds. It is likely that Assad will remain in the saddle, and this is Putin’s success. In addition, Putin is the only leader who can influence the actions of Assad. Finally, Putin has the best foreign minister in G20: Sergey Lavrov is an excellent expert on UN mechanisms, he knows how to play tough, but at the same time refined diplomat. ”


Ian Bremmer answered unequivocally the question of the correspondent about why Putin published an article in The New York Times:

“To emphasize that he is winning the Syrian party. This is like an honorary circle in the stadium after the defeat of the most important opponent. Putin decided to crown the political defeat inflicted on the United States by invading Obama’s territory with a direct appeal to the Americans. It was a show of strength. ”


Thus, let us add on our own, if one analyst, whose mind was only enough for an essay on pink lingerie, preaches American exclusivity, then the second recognizes that Putin outplayed Obama in the Syrian direction.

      But what about Mr. McKesha with the announced article in Pravda ?!

      Steve Israel, a member of the US House of Representatives for the 3 constituency in New York, wrote a response to an article by Vladimir Putin in the New York Times, giving his point of view on Russia's role in resolving the Syrian conflict.
      In his letter, the congressman recalls his Russian roots and expresses respect for Russia and its leadership. However, he defends the right of the United States to use force against the Syrian leadership. “Your president’s call for Syria to surrender chemical weapons is a positive step, as I have repeatedly repeated, preference should always be given to diplomacy. However, if diplomacy is powerless, I believe that the US should mitigate the threat and prevent the further use of chemical weapons without conducting ground operations with a limited, targeted and quick strike, ”he says.

      “Firstly, because Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons more than once ... - Israel defends its point of view. - Without receiving a harsh answer and in the absence of unanimity of the international community, Assad will become bolder and continue to poison people with gas and kill more and more innocent people.

      Secondly, because we do not want the chemical weapons of Syria to fall into the wrong hands, including separate groups in the ranks of the Syrian rebels. It is not about one or the other side in the Syrian civil war. It is about minimizing the chances of the use of chemical weapons by any party whatsoever.

      Third, it is imperative that we firmly state Hezbollah, Iran and North Korea: if any of them ignore international laws that have existed for several decades and decides to use chemical weapons, then they will not be able to avoid the consequences. ”

      “If your leadership is serious about the idea of ​​creating a real system of control and deterrence of the use of chemical weapons in Syria under international supervision, a system that will be transparent, objective and effective, then we can add this example to the list of exceptional joint achievements of our two countries,” stressed the congressman.

        It never ceases to amaze me blindness views of Americans on Russia. Senator John McCain and his assistants apparently continue to believe that only the Pravda newspaper exists in the press from Russia. Perhaps, relying on data from the 60s, they consider it the main "mouthpiece of power." In cinema in general, the more comical, absurd and bloodthirsty the Russian (the bandit, the military, the official, the president) looks, the more likely it is in the eyes of the Americans and fits into the negative image of Russia, Russian, circulated by all media.
        The Cold War, in the minds and minds of American politicians, and part of the population, remained forever. The image of Russia seems to them as Russia from the 30s-80s of the XNUMXth century. From such American perverted opinions and ideas about Russia, sometimes I, the Russian citizen, creepy. Horror film, and more. Flight of fantasy knows no bounds. Well it is necessary to frighten yourself so Russia.
        Amazed poor mind judgments. Any lie, if it corresponds to the American worldview, the momentary situation, goes to the BIS: "... you don’t need a knife for a fool - he will sing along quietly and do what you like with him ... "
        Adjustment of facts for certain purposes, here the United States has no equal. Making white black is easy. Finding something that isn’t in nature or contrary to common sense is for them.
        Exclusivity is already from the theory of fascism. "We are all equal, but we are all the same exceptionally equal." This thesis, in my opinion, is simply being driven into the minds of Americans.

The Americans are honestly defended in the democratic struggle. They remember the most popular vacation spots of our fellow citizens. Turkey and Egypt, with their all-inclusive, are the epicenter of the formation of the stereotype Russian man to the western man in the street.

One was sick, the other doubted that US citizens would understand our president, etc. Some citizens understood, but with typical reservations: KGB, KGB officer, human rights, gays, “attack” on Georgia, tyrant, tyranny, etc. etc.
            In the US film "Explosion from the Past" (comedy), one of the heroes of the world of Russia (the USSR) showed well: the USSR = aggressor = nuclear war = bomb shelter. And in conclusion, when his son told him that there was no USSR and no communists, they themselves had collapsed, this hero, thinking, uttered the phrase that the Russian Communists had spent him here, too, as an American guy.
            Well, they do not believe us, that we have changed in their understanding. And they don’t want to read and listen about it.

    this senator set out to respond to a Putin article on Syria previously published in The New York Times. He will answer with an article in the Russian newspaper Pravda,
    Dear John, pay attention to the name of the newspaper, you better go to Novaya Gazeta.

    So, so how? "... the army of the world, which was often used for good purposes"?
    Good for whom? For the USA? Well, the road to HELL is paved with good intentions.

    Charles Lister said: “The illegal armed groups are dominated by groups that at least share the ideas of the Islamists in this conflict. The idea that secular opposition groups are waging this conflict is unfounded. ”
    It is strange to hear this from the British, apparently the murder of a soldier on a white day in the street somehow affected his perception of the world.

    According to Lebanese media, extremists in the north are training female militants for the Syrian war on the side of the Al-Nusra Front

    Is meat running out? if so then this is good news.

    In Libya - the deepest crisis of the oil industry. The food industry is not paralyzed. At the enterprises - protests and strikes. According to The New York Times, oil production declined by 90%.
    And what shisha were they going to buy our weapons ????

    The exact reasons are not established. According to the preliminary findings of specialists, the steam may be associated with evaporation of rainwater, leakage of water from the pool of the reactor or contact of nitrogen, which is under a protective shell, with air.

    A nuclear reactor smokes under their noses, and they really don’t know what to do.

    “Yes, Mr. Putin, you can call it American exclusivity. Personally, I like it much more than the Russian one, ”Robinson sums up.
    Remember these words when you find yourself in a freshly constructed Obama concentration camp and get an expansive bullet in one place.

      "Therefore, when Putin tries to lecture" to the American people and its political leaders "from the position of moral superiority, it cannot be taken seriously," the author says. “As for Syria, the ominous and barbarous government of dictator Bashar Assad would not have lasted a week without generous military supplies to Russia. In the hands of Putin, the blood of tens of thousands of civilians. "

      The exclusivity of the American nation smells bad, because somewhere such ideas have already taken place, and history remembers that people who carry such ideas do not finish well.
      You know, I’m sure that if Russia didn’t have nuclear weapons, America would begin the militarization of the entire planet, following the example of Adolf Hitler. Every president, starting from Reigon, has fought at least one war.

      PS It may not be so, but still if you think about it: it turns out that if Russia did not have nuclear weapons, the whole world would fall into colonial slavery to the United States. After all, what’s the matter, different countries have nuclear weapons, but it’s the Russian one that can multiply all 50 states by zero.

      Steve Israel, who transmitted his "Open Letter to the People of Russia" to Kommersant. This congressman calls not to abandon the operation in Syria and does not agree with the President of the Russian Federation on the issue of "American exclusivity."

      Does the surname justify this killer?

      According to Pravda.ru, O'Beighi, whom Kerry and McCain referred to in the Wall Street Journal editorial comment, was fired after she lied about her doctorate. This was written by the newspaper Politico.

      I never cease to be amazed at the debility of amers.

      One hundred thousand bearded men. The number of fighters fighting in Syria against Bashar al-Assad is about 100 thousand. About half of them are radical Islamists. Information about this data is provided by The Telegraph, citing a report by the IHS Jane's research center, reports Lenta.ru.

      Well, the amers created a perfectly armed army of criminals. The task is completed, and chestnuts from fire are dragged like that by other hands.

      Well, it is quite logical, we add from ourselves that the British are following the Americans, who also legalize “light” drugs. The case for "heavy": after all, dealers-criminals trade in those. It is only necessary to calculate how much money the budget will save on keeping heroin and cocaine drag dealers, and how much tax the treasury will additionally receive from the open trade in “white medicine”. In times of economic crisis, this money will not be superfluous.

    Everything would not be so bad if ...
    The “local community” point blank does not want to see (or admit that it does not want to see) what is really happening in Syria (and around it). As a result, Pharisee comments in a selective format, which is simply called "defamation." And since, as you know, half-truth is worse than a lie, the picture only gets sadder.
    E. Satanovsky yesterday, on Sunday evening, popularly, "on his fists", explained that the problem has not gone away, diplomats will be given the opportunity to talk among themselves, and thereby "earn points." But the point of no return in the Syrian conflict is passed.
    "Sponsors" pay operating expenses and, accordingly, wait for return on invested capital.
    Turkey, its problems that have arisen, is trying to shut up, simultaneously saktsentiruyte the situation in Damascus, in an attempt to find a common enemy for all of Turkey.
    Israel is quiet, diligently preparing for all kinds of attacks (missile, chemical), simultaneously preparing for a retaliatory strike.
    To bring in the forces of KFOR or the United Nations on the territory of Syria, for the breeding of the warring parties, is probably the last real chance to at least extinguish the local conflict, not to allow it to develop into a regional one, but even technically it is late and impossible, because Islamic radicals fighting in Syria have already made it clear that they will not leave Syria anywhere until they complete the bloody work paid by the Saudis.

    PS I would only be glad if I made a mistake in assessing what was happening.

    According to Mr. Israel, in case of failure of political efforts, the plan of operation against Damascus cannot be discounted. There are three reasons for this: the repeated use of chemical weapons by Damascus; the need to prevent agents from falling into the hands of the Syrian rebels; the task is to send a signal to those forces that "ignore international laws." The latter include Iran, North Korea and Hezbollah.
