  • in Western Sahara
    Arduous "walk to freedom" in Western Sahara The story of Western Sahara, the last colony in Africa, is one of flagrant violation of international law, and persistence of a four decades' military occupation by an African country to another African nation. But it is also a story of systematic human rights violation, thousands stories of forcibly separated families, stolen lives and dreams, yet with a flavour of resistance and refusal to abdicate by the people of this territory.

  • Why is Ebola raging in DR Congo after a year?
    Why is Ebola raging in DR Congo after a year? Ebola nightmare still rages in DR Congo unabated nearly one year after the Health Ministry reported an outbreak. Why? Ebola Virus Disease is a horrific virus with a high mortality rate, so much so that it is classified as a Category A bioterrorism agent. EVD is not (yet) an airborne virus like the Influenza viruses, and it is transmitted by contact with bodily fluids, such as blood, feces and vomit, milk, urine and semen, possibly also saliva and tears, more especially in the later stages of the illness. Some studies also indicate that it can be spread through sweat and contact with the body of someone infected or contact with contaminated surfaces.
  • Julian Assange should have followed Edward Snowden to Russia
    The US Justice Department sent an inquiry to the UK for the extradition of journalist Julian Assange. The founder of WikiLeaks has seen a lot of tribulations lately. Pravda.Ru talked about the fate of one of the world's most famous journalists to Israel Shamir - a representative of WikiLeaks in Russia and Scandinavian countries. "The arrest of Julian Assange came as a big blow to freedom in the broad sense of the word. Why did he go to England after all? Edward Snowden came to Russia, where he found protection, but Assange went to London, where he was arrested in such a derogatory way. How did he find himself in the UK?""When Julian Assange created WikiLeaks and started doing what he was doing, they went after him  almost immediately. At first, he flew to Iceland, where he found a warm welcome. However, there were local problems there, because a major supporter of WikiLeaks, who was in Iceland, tried to take WikiLeaks away.""For commercial purposes?""Yes, there was a personal attempt made to annex WikiLeaks, and Julian had to quickly escape to  Sweden. Sweden was waiting for Assange with open arms, but he spent a very short amount of time there. Everyone was very friendly and hospitable to him, everyone was treating him well. The trouble came when two women came to police and said that Assange had abused them. All of a sudden, he saw newspaper headlines that were calling him a rapist. "The storm did not last long, but Julian had to decide for himself where he was going next. He flew to England, where everything was fine at first. There was one man there, who owned a beautiful castle in Western England. A wonderful place indeed, I've been there. It was a perfect place for work, where he later received a big present from Manning. It was there where he got what they later started calling an issue of the State Department. He gave it a go, and it triggered a chain reaction. Sweden instituted a criminal case against Assange, and the UK issued an order for his arrest. They could have arrested him long before that, but it appeared that they were dragging time. They eventually put an electronic bracelet on his ankle, but he was still free for about a year or more, which was quite a long time. Yet, Assange could not leave England, and then all those temporary indulgences ended. "When they started talking about an opportunity to deliver Assange to the United States, he asked Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa for political asylum. Clearly, he could not even imagine that he would have to stay there for so long. He had lived there for a few years, and one day the British police dragged him out of that building. The future of his case is still dark."
  • Journalist Ivan Golunov released, charges against him dropped
    The Ministry for Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation has decided to terminate the prosecution of journalist Ivan Golunov as it has been impossible to establish his guilt, the head of the ministry, Vladimir Kolokoltsev said. The charges against Golunov have been dropped, he will be released from house arrest on June 11, the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs added.The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation will assess the legality of actions that law-enforcement officers took within the scope of Ivan Golunov's case. The officers, who took part in his arrest, have been temporarily dismissed from duty for the time of the investigation. Vladimir Kolokoltsev, the Minister for Internal Affairs of Russia, will ask President Vladimir Putin to dismissal the head of the anti-drug trafficking department of the State Ministry of Internal Affairs for the city of Moscow, Yury Devyatkin, as well as the head of the Department of Internal Affairs for Moscow, Andrei Puchkov.
  • The case of Ivan Golunov: Who made a mistake?
    Dmitry Peskov, Putin's official spokesman, told reporters on June 10 that the Kremlin was watching the development of the investigation of the case of journalist Ivan Golunov. Peskov added, though, that he was not ready to comment on the case. He only said that the case of Ivan Golunov is supposed to attract "close attention of the Office of the Prosecutor General and other services." He declined to answer questions about possible resignations and the objectivity of the investigation.Putin was informed about the case of Ivan Golunov on Friday, Peskov said. He also said that the Kremlin fully trusts the Office of the Prosecutor General in terms of reaction to possible incidents of abuse of human rights. Speaking on the problem of distrust to law enforcement and judicial systems, Peskov acknowledged that the Golunov case "gave rise to a large number of questions," but one did not have to talk about distrust to the system in general. He also declined to comment on the question of possible resignations and possible violations made on the part of law-enforcers. "A mistake is possible because it's people who work everywhere. Mistakes may take place anywhere. Journalists can also make mistakes when they write their materials. They can make many mistakes, but the main thing is to acknowledge those mistakes and explain, how they were made not to let them happen again," said Peskov.Ivan Golunov, a special correspondent of Meduza website, was detained in the afternoon of June 6 in Moscow. His detention was legally registered only on the night of June 7 - i.e. 13 hours  later. Golunov was not allowed to call either his relatives or a lawyer. The journalist's relatives were notified of his detention only after 13 hours, while the lawyer was allowed to talk to Golunov only in 16 hours.Golunov suffered injuries during his detention. In response to his requirements for a lawyer, a law-enforcement officer punched the journalist in the head twice. When the journalist was lying on the pavement, a policeman put his foot on the young man's chest.Golunov was charged with an attempt to sell large batches of drugs. Illegal substances were found in his backpack and in his apartment. Law-enforcement authorities later exposed nine photographs allegedly made in Golunov's apartment, although it later turned out that eight of those pictures were made in completely different premises.The journalist claims that the drugs were planted on him; his colleagues support his words on the matter. Golunov is known for his high-profile investigations of corruption among metropolitan and federal officials. Other journalists believe that Golunov was arrested in response to his another investigation, which was devoted to the funeral business in Moscow. The journalist had received a number of threats in this connection during the recent months.On the afternoon of June 8, a Moscow court was supposed to gather for a meeting to choose a measure of restraint for the arrested journalist. However, Golunov did not feel well as he had hardly slept and eaten before. ER doctors insisted on hospitalizing Golunov, but law-enforcers prevented this to happen, nor did they let medical specialists examine the journalist. Ivan Golunov was eventually taken to a hospital for examination. Several hours later, the head physician of the hospital said that there was no reason to hospitalise the journalist, because his condition was satisfactory. Nearly all Russian media outlets, except for clearly pro-Kremlin ones, supported Golunov. His case received an extensive coverage in Russia and attracted attention to many public figures and activists. On June 8, a Moscow court decided to put Golunov under house arrest, while prosecutors insisted on two months of arrest. Golunov is not allowed to leave his home, he is not allowed to talk to anyone related to his case. He is not allowed to use means of communication either. Golunov's lawyers intend to appeal to the European Court for Human Rights. 
  • Gorbachev comments on fiction in Chernobyl miniseries
    Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev stated that he did not give orders not to reward the title of the Hero of Socialist Labor to academician Valery Legasov, who was involved in the investigation of the causes of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. In HBO's "Chernobyl" miniseries, Legasov's career stopped after he had presented his own version of the nuclear catastrophe. "I did not give [orders]. Who else could give them, but me? This is fiction," Gorbachev said adding that he had not seen the much talked-about TV series about Chernobyl. Public interest in the life of academician Valery Legasov rose after the release of the miniseries, in which Legasov was played by actor Jared Harris.Spoilers below. In the last episode of the series, Legasov speaks at the court where he accuses employees of the  Chernobyl nuclear power plant of the disaster. In his speech, Legasov claims that the state machine of the Soviet Union was silencing the fact that nuclear reactors in the Soviet Union, including of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, were defective. In reality, the scientist did not take part in the trial - the scene was fictitious. Legasov was a member of the governmental commission to investigate the causes and eliminate the consequences of the accident at the nuclear power plant. According to one of the versions, speaking at the IAEA conference in Vienna in 1986, he allegedly exposed secret information. Some historians believe that Gorbachev then decided not to award the title to the academician, and the scientist's career was ruined. The academician had been promoted to the title of the Hero of Socialist Labor twice, but he had never received it. In 1988, Legasov committed suicide.
  • Global environmental catastrophe: Straight into the Gates of Hell
    Global environmental catastrophe: Straight into the Gates of Hell With the rhino and elephant memories from a distant past, joining the dodo showcased as museum exhibits, the Amazon became a barren desert. Welcome to Planet Earth some years before 2050. Massive storms raze whole areas of cities and devastate the agricultural plains, forests and fields of cereals, food shortages have given rise to gang-related deaths producing civil war-like casualty figures and potable water restrictions have led to widespread violence. Heatwaves have scorched regions once fertile, changing them into Mars-like landscapes and rising temperatures have made tropical diseases endemic in the northern hemisphere. Survival is the key, not quality of life.
  • FIFA and UN Women sign first-ever memorandum of understanding
    FIFA and UN Women sign first-ever memorandum of understanding Paris, 7 June 2019 - The first-ever memorandum of understanding (MoU) between FIFA and the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) was signed by FIFA President Gianni Infantino and UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo‑Ngcuka at the FIFA Women's Football Convention today, a few hours before the opening match of the FIFA Women's World Cup 2019TM. "This is a significant moment for FIFA as we combine forces with UN Women to realise gender equality for women both on and off the pitch." said Infantino. "Together, we will raise awareness about women's football and its impact in terms of health, empowerment and positive role models for women and girls around the world."
  • The Senator's letter
    As I wrote other times in the past, the election of Donald Trump to the highest American political office has been accompanied by great hopes of change. Not only in terms of domestic politics and economy, but also in international terms. Many hoped, and still hope now, that Trump would have closed the season of proxy wars, regime changes achieved through psyco-police style interferences, continuous and bitter diplomatic clashes with Russia. Unfortunately, the current situation does not seem to evolve along the hoped directions. Not only Trump is continually opposed by a miserable intelligentsia (to put it in the Russian language) belonging to the faded American left, but the incredible hoax of a Trump as Kremlin agent, then infiltrated and treacherous under Putin's orders, blocked the new administration for more than two years. The Muller report, which exonerates Trump of the accusations, did not resolve complitely this impasse and many problems, that could have already been solved, still remain. Moreover, people like Bolton and Pompeo, always considered warmongers, have been nominated in key positions. The recent hostility against China (however, predictable from the electoral campaign) and unfortunately the new one against the Iran have joined the old hostility towards Russia. About the ayatollahs in Tehran, it is reasonable to ask whether Trump is only ill-advised by his entourage or if he's following a personal inclination or inevitably if he's trying to pay a debt with the Jewish lobby to which he owes, according to some rumors, being exonerated from the charge of treason. Exonerated from the charge, but still absurdly at risk of impeachment. We cannot give a precise answer but we can in any case to affirm, without fear of being contradicted, that a war against Iran would be frighteningly expensive in terms of human lives and material damage. Both sides would be in the grip of a condition, alas, cathartic but the Americans would be the invading enemies and the Iranians those who defend themselves as attacked: they would fight like tigers for their homes, their fathers, their mothers, wives and children. Iran is an ancient country whose people have roots that date back to ancient empires. Why should they surrender without charging the highest possible price?
  • Russia and the USA kill Venezuela in their struggle
    The media hype around Venezuela has been declining lately. Today, the United States is willing to know, to which extent Moscow is prepared to support the loyal regime, while Russia wants to know how it can help Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro stay in power. At the same time, the people of Venezuela want to know the answer to just one question- how to keep the economy of their country afloat. On June 3, The Wall Street Journal reported that Russian military specialists were going to be withdrawn from the country. The gradual withdrawal of Russian advisers from Venezuela, the publication said, was due to the lack of new contracts, because Nicolas Maduro could no longer pay for Russia's services. US President Donald Trump later tweeted: "Russia has informed us that they have removed most of their people from Venezuela." However, Russia's Ambassador to Caracas, a representative of Rostec, Kremlin's official spokesman  Dmitry Peskov, and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov dismissed the information. "I do not know what they (the Americans) react to, nothing has been reported to them officially," Peskov said. What is hidden behind this rhetoric? Does the Kremlin really want to cut assistance to Maduro for unpaid contracts or are the parties getting ready for further actions in Venezuela?Political analyst Jesus Castillo Molleda told Panorama.com.ve that Russia understands the geopolitical interest of her presence in the region. Russia's pullout from Venezuela would mean that Russia was leaving America. Russia has all the ability not to let the USA win the battle in Venezuela, the analyst said. According to analyst Oscar Arnal, Moscow may indeed withdraw its people from Venezuela if it has lost faith in the ability of the Maduro government to pay its debts. Venezuela is falling apart as a state, so it is in Russia's interest to have a new government installed there to have the money back, the political scientist believes. The relations between Russia and the United States aggravated when Moscow sent about a hundred paratroopers and military personnel from Syria to Venezuela. Apparently, the Russian troops were deployed on an army base in the north-west of the country in the area of Orinoco river oil fields, where Russian oil giant Rosneft has its wells. Regardless of whether Moscow has decided to withdraw its personnel from Caracas or not, two key players in Venezuela - Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping - are expected to make a decision to protect their investments there. Russia and China prevented a foreign intervention in Venezuela and advocate a dialogue that began in Oslo.According to Alexander Chichin, the dean of the Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences of the Russian Academy of National Economy, Russia has invested at least $17 billion in Venezuela. The primary objective is to find countermeasures against US sanctions that exclude currency income for oil sales. "If Russia and China do not find concerted measures to support Maduro, an inevitable collapse will occur, as Venezuela's GDP has fallen by 52 percent over three years and there is no currency to buy at least the essential basket of food products and medical equipment," the expert told Pravda.Ru.Among such measures, the expert indicated the supplies of Venezuelan oil to China and the opening of new credit lines there. China, Alexander Chichin believes, will hold on to Venezuela. China has been losing ground in Brazil lately after Jair Bolsonaro came to power in the country. In Mexico, López Obrador does not favor China either. Alexander Chichin believes that Moscow has not withdrawn its troops from Venezuela. "Who is going to maintain those arms and who's going to teach Venezuelans how to use them? Their payment is a political question, and money is not an issue here," the expert concluded in an interview with Pravda.Ru.On June 5, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo found another reason to explain why Washington has not been able to topple Maduro yet. According to Pompeo, the Venezuelan opposition does not act as a united front. More than 40 people, Pompeo said, believe that they are legitimate successors of President Nicolas Maduro. "The moment Maduro leaves, everyone will raise their hands and say: "Choose me, I'm the next president of Venezuela,"" Pompeo said, adding that Maduro's resignation would not be enough. Indeed, but Guaido's arrival would not change anything either. Venezuela will change geopolitically, but Venezuelan politics is not only about the confrontation between Maduro and Guaido. There are different movements inside the Chavistas, there are anti-Mauro Chavistas too. As history has shown in Iraq and Afghanistan, the lifting of sanctions after the arrival of US-loyal politicians to power leads to even more chaos rather than prosperity. The Americans have poor knowledge of the Venezuelan society, and little did they know about Iraq and Afghanistan. It will be big news for the Americans, when a significant part of Venezuelans show strong resistance to Guaido, and some of the military will join partisan movements.The problem is not about sanctions. The main objective is to restore the viability of the economy. The people of Venezuela need to seek internal consensus, eliminate diarchy and restore the ability of their state to run state policy.
  • Andy Ruiz Jr.: The new king in heavyweight boxing
    By Romer Cherubim, UK Anthony Joshua lost his four heavyweight boxing titles on 01 June in spectacular fashion against Andy Ruiz Jr. at Madison Square Garden, NYC, USA. Eddie Hearn's master plan to introduce Joshua to the American public and make him look good, failed. Hearn did everything in his power to help Joshua to win his first defence of his heavyweight crown on American soil. By selecting Andy Ruiz Jr. as Joshua's next opponent, with Ruiz Jr. having only six weeks' notice of the fight, Hearn was convinced that Joshua was guaranteed an easy pay day. However, the likeable Ruiz Jr. tore up the script and proved all doubters wrong by producing a skillful display of boxing and sticking to a workable game plan. This was not a one punch wonder.

  • USA becomes one of the largest investors in Russian economy, study says
    The United States has taken center stage in terms of the number of investment projects in Russia for the first time since 2013, a report conducted by EY audit and consulting network said. The annual study titled "Investment Attractiveness of European countries for 2018," in particular says that foreign investors invested in 211 projects in Russia. This is eleven percent less than was reported in the previous year, when there were 238 foreign investors. According to EY, this fact  corresponds to the general European trend, where a four-percent decrease in investment activity was reported. At the same time, the number of investment projects from the United States increased from 19 to 33 percent, having gained 74 percent. Germany comes second with 24 projects (investment fell by 14 percent), while China comes third. The number of Chinese investment projects in Russia fell from 32 to 19 percent.According to EY, Russia is ranked ninth in the top ten of most attractive European countries to foreign investors due to low inflation and continuing economic growth. According to the Russian Statistics Agency, the Russian economy grew by 2.3 percent in 2018. The EY report says that the stabilization of prices has made long-term planning possible.At the same time, the EY report contradicts to the official statistics of direct investments from the Central Bank. According to the Central Bank of the Russian federation, the balance of foreign investments in the Russian economy as of January 1, 2019 shows Cyprus on the first place, Luxembourg on the second and the Bahamas on the third place. The USA takes the 18th place on the list, while China is ranked 22nd. Most likely, the EY statistics is more representative, since the data of the Russian Central Bank include investments that investors of Russian origin make through offshore companies. At the same time, statistics of the Central Bank excludes investments made by the "daughters" of foreign companies in Russia (most American and Chinese investments in Russia relate to this type of investment).
  • Putin will have 76 Sukhoi Su-57 fifth-generation fighter jets before 2028
    Yuri Slyusar, President of the United Aircraft Building Corporation (UAC), said on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) that Russian companies would be able to produce 76 Su-57 fighter jets before 2028. "We have prepared production facilities for this. The factory in Komsomolsk-on-Amur is one of technologically advanced enterprises at this point, with highly qualified personnel, so we will accomplish this goal for the president," said Slyusar.In May of this year, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced plans to purchase 76 Sukhoi Su-57 fifth-generation fighters and finish all the works before 2028. Putin said that the new airplanes would need to replace the air fleet of three aviation regiments. Originally, it was planned to buy only 16 aircraft, but the manufacturer later announced a price reduction of 20 percent.According to various estimates, the contract is evaluated at 170 billion rubles. This will be the largest order in the history of domestic aviation. 
  • NATO-backed Kosovo and its provocations against the Serbs
    By Giovanne Giacalone Kosovo has launched a series of actions that can easily been interpreted by the Serbian counterpart as provocations in order to raise tensions and generate an escalation of violence, possibly by provoking a reaction by Serbia. On May 28th the Kosovo police forces invaded the northern part of Mitrovica, which is inhabited by the Serbian population, in order to arrest 23 people, including 19 police agents (11 serbs, 4 bosniaks and 4 ethnic Albanians).
  • John Kerry offered to hold another referendum on Crimea, FM Lavrov says
    John Kerry, who served as US Secretary of State from 2013 to 2017, had proposed another referendum on Crimea's reunification with Russia, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in an interview with RBC."I am not going to reveal a big secret here, but former US Secretary of State John Kerry told me about that in April 2014. He told me that he could well understand the result of the vote. "Everything is clear. Everything happened as the Crimean people wanted. But for order, hold another referendum," Sergei Lavrov said recalling what John Kerry had told him. "I hope John does not take offense at me. He too has published a few secrets of our conversations with him in his memoirs," said Lavrov.After the coup in Ukraine in February 2014, the authorities of the Crimea and the city of Sevastopol held a referendum about the issue of reunification with Russia. More than 80 percent of voters took part in the referendum and more than 97 percent of them voted for reunification with Russia. On March 18, 2014, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an agreement to incorporate the Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol into the Russian Federation. The Federal Assembly ratified the document on March 21. Despite the convincing results of the referendum, Ukraine refused to recognize the Crimea as part of Russia.
  • Russia to launch space radar satellite system to counter USA's Lacrosse
    The Russian Ministry of Defense announced the imminent launch of all elements of the new system of radar intelligence system code-named as "Liana."Four space vehicles - two "Lotos-S" and two "Pion NKC" - were deployed in near space at an altitude of about 100 kilometers. They will allow the Russian armed forces to monitor objects on the surface of the Earth that can be as small as a car. The first satellite went into orbit back in 2009, while the second one was deployed in space in 2018. It is believed that the new system will gain the full potential after the launch of the remaining two units in the coming months. Thus, the complex will be fully deployed in early 2020. The Liana system comes to replace the Soviet target designation system known as Legenda (Legend), which was commissioned more than 40 years ago. The Legenda complex was one of the most advanced systems for the 1970s, but it had a number of significant drawbacks. For example, the orbital altitude of space vehicles of the system did not exceed 25 kilometers, which caused the spacecraft to wear out and come out of order faster than usual. In addition, the "Legend" could not "look" either through the clouds or under the surface of the Earth. To crown it all, the Soviet space radar system could only see objects that were tens of meters in size.There were also significant problems with the launch of spacecraft after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Zenit booster rockets for the Legenda system used to be manufactured in Ukraine. The termination of defense cooperation with Kiev made those space launches impossible. The emergence of the Liana complex can therefore be considered as the next stage in the development of the capabilities of the Russian space industry.Our country was forced to respond to challenges of the Pentagon after the Americans developed and launched the Lacrosse satellite system.Presumably, Liana is a system that has global coverage. Like its American analogue, the Russian system can monitor the earth's surface through a layer of clouds. The spacecraft of the system have a synthetic aperture, which increases the angular resolution of the radar station. The use of such a technology makes it possible to receive detailed images of an object on the surface, and even in the subsoil layer.The Lacrosse system of the United States includes six spacecraft capable of "seeing" objects less than one meter in size in all weathers, at any time of the day. The monitoring is conducted in a stripe, which can be up to 100 kilometers wide. The need to use this technology is directly related to the new type of warfare, which the Pentagon currently implements within the framework of the new defense doctrine. It goes about the network-centric organization of command of a military conflict. The Americans used this method for the first time in Iraq. Instead of the rigid vertical arrangement of the transfer of decisions from top to bottom, the principle of simultaneous collection and processing of information is used while the centers of responsibility for headquarters at various levels were preserved.In a nutshell, each war unit (from soldier to general), each element of the tracking system and artificial intelligence of each combat vehicle were united into joint information space. The command could thus monitor the situation on the battlefield in real time. Radar reconnaissance satellites play a crucial role in the network-centric control system. Based on their experiences received in Iraq, Libya, Syria and other hotspots on the planet, the Americans developed new Lacrosse spacecraft (they were developed by Martin Marietta company).The launch of the Liana system will enable Russia to arrange large-scale military actions on the basis of principles of network-centric warfare.
