MOSCOW, Russia – The Kremlin totally disagrees with the words of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on the “waste of public resources” on the issue of Russian airplanes sent to Venezuela.

West Blaming Russia for Yellow Shirts in France But Who Benefits from the Demolition of Macron?

Published 2018-12-12 12:10:48 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, France-Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia

PARIS, France – The accusations for Russia’s involvement in anti-government protests in France are based on Moscow’s attempts to weaken the European Union, as well as France itself, but the reality, as well as the structure of trade cooperation between the two countries, is the opposite, analysts say. The Times has announced that hundreds of orders allegedly linked to Russia have appeared on Twitter, with more than 1,500 messages being published on a daily basis in order to “increase the volume of street protests” in France. In this regard, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said that the General Secretariat… Continue ->

Belgrade Hits Back at Croatia’s Ridiculous Claims of Serbian-perpetrated Genocide

Published 2018-12-12 10:50:18 by Paul Antonopoulos in Croatia, Eurasia, Headline-News, Serbia

BELGRADE, Serbia – It would be better for Croatia to first face its own past and stop relativizing the genocide against Serbs, Jews and Roma committed during the Second World War in Croatia and Bosnia, as well as celebrating the persecution of Serbs in “Operation Storm”, Foreign Minister Ivica Dačić said. Dačić reacted to the statement by Croatian Foreign Minister Marija Pejčinović Burić, who said that Serbia was unwilling to face issues from the past. “Serbia has punished its criminals and continues to punish them,” Dačić told Večernje Novosti. The Croatian Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that Burić said at… Continue ->
