MOSCOW – “Petro Poroshenko lost the election to no one other than to Vladimir Putin”. This was stated by the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia Maria Zakharova , recalling how the current Ukrainian president opposed himself on billboards to the Russian president during the election campaign. “Either Poroshenko, or Putin,” said the slogans on these posters, and at the same time Poroshenko lost,” Zakharova said. “So Poroshenko didn’t lose the election to anyone but Putin?” Then, according to her, “Ukraine should obey the will of the one with whom Poroshenko lost to”.

Putin SLAMS criticism over Donbass citizenship move

Published 2019-04-26 21:20:58 by Paul Antonopoulos in Donbass, Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia, Ukraine

MOSCOW – There is nothing astonishing about Russia offering quick citizenship to people in eastern Ukraine, as other states have involved their compatriots for a long time in a similar way, said Russian President Vladimir Putin. Strong criticism of the Russian humanitarian initiative to accelerate citizenship is “strange,” Putin told reporters after meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Poland issued the “Karta Polaka” (Polish Card) for ethnic Poles in Ukraine, while Hungary and Romania issue passports under similar programs, he added. This is also the case for native Ukrainians who “feel connected to Russia” for various reasons, such as… Continue ->

U.S ambassador threatens war with Russia, Moscow laughs-off empty threat

Published 2019-04-26 18:30:48 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia, United-States

MOSCOW – Apr 26, 2019 – Russia’s Foreign Ministry official Maria Zakharova said on Thursday that Moscow regrets that the “language of sanctions and threats” has become the “visiting card” of the United States. In particular, the diplomat criticized the statements of the US ambassador to Russia, John Huntsman, who threatened Moscow with two North American aircraft carriers in the Mediterranean Sea. Hunstman had stated that each aircraft carrier represents one hundred thousand tons of international diplomacy and shows Russia that if it really hopes to improve relations with the US, it has to stop destabilizing activities around the world….

Published 2019-04-26 17:00:24 by Paul Antonopoulos in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Headline-News, Latin-America, Russia, United-States

IN DEPTH: Libya – Has Russia Allied with Al Qaeda? Here’s Why Not

Published 2019-04-26 16:19:34 by FRN Editorial Board in Egypt, France-Eurasia, Headline-News, Isis, Libya, Mena, Opinions, Russia

By P. Antonopoulos, J. Flores, & V. Gujanicic TRIPOLI – Some protesters donning the infamous yellow vests were seen in the center of the Libyan capital, Tripoli, but unlike the demonstrations in France they have received little international attention. Are they a reflection of the rejection of ‘French support’ that General Khalifa Haftar receives from Macron, that has awakened ire in the area controlled by the so-called internationally recognized government? Or is this a concocted hi-jacking of the yellow vest trope, being used for ends entirely different from those of the yellow vests in France? Certainly putting yellow vests into… Continue ->
