(ISRAEL/GREECE) JUST IN: Sign their biggest ever defence procurement deal, which Israel said would strengthen political and economic ties between the countries as the two countries’ air forces launched a joint exercise #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.23: With Turkey and Iran looming large in the region (and expanding their influence), a paramount deal has been struck between Israel and Greece. The two countries “have signed their biggest ever defence procurement deal, which Israel said would strengthen political and economic ties between the countries.”

Israel and Greece sign record defense deal amid threats from Turkey and Iran: ‘Greece and Turkey have been embroiled in ongoing disputes. Tensions — from gas exploration to territorial battles and migrant disputes — brought the countries to the brink of “open conflict” last year. At the core is Turkey’s policy of Islamic expansionism and its Islamic supremacist bulling’

As part of the new Israel-Greece agreement, which strengthens Greece in the face of Turkish aggression, the Greek Defense Ministry and Elbit Systems will lead to “the establishment and operation of a training centre for the Hellenic Air Force.”

The first military deal between the Israel and Greece was concluded last year, when Israel leased drones to Greece to help it defend its borders.

“Israel and Greece sign record defence deal,” Al Jazeera, April 18, 2021:

The agreement includes a $1.65bn contract for the establishment and operation of a training centre for the Hellenic Air Force by Israeli defence contractor Elbit Systems over a 22-year period, Israel’s defence ministry said on Sunday.

The training centre will be modelled on Israel’s own flight academy and will be equipped with 10 M-346 training aircraft produced by Italy’s Leonardo, the ministry said.

Elbit will supply kits to upgrade and operate Greece’s T-6 aircraft and also provide training, simulators and logistical support.

“I am certain that (this programme) will upgrade the capabilities and strengthen the economies of Israel and Greece and thus the partnership between our two countries will deepen on the defence, economic and political levels,” said Israeli Defence Minister Benny Gantz.

The announcement follows a meeting in Cyprus on Friday between the United Arab Emirates, Greek, Cypriot and Israeli foreign ministers, who agreed to deepen cooperation.

The Israeli and Greek air forces on Sunday launched a joint exercise in Greece, the Israeli military said.

In at least one past exercise over Greece, Israeli fighter planes practised against an S-300 posted on Crete. The Russian-made air defence system is also deployed in Syria and Iran, Israel’s foes.

A source in the Hellenic National Defence Command said the S-300 had not been activated in the joint exercise that began on Sunday.

Israel, Greece and Cyprus have taken several steps in recent months to cement ties, including advancing plans to build a 2,000-megawatt undersea electricity cable and a 1,900km (1,300-mile) undersea gas pipeline, a move that irked regional rival Turkey.

Last month, the Israeli military said it conducted a joint naval exercise with Greece and Cyprus…..

Featured: Video #CROATIA: #Update ‘ Closes seven of its eight border crossings to #Serbia as huge surge of #refugees turned away from #Hungary ‘

#AceNewsReport – Sept.18: Croatia has closed seven of its eight border crossings with Serbia overwhelmed by a huge surge of refugees turned away by Hungary. PM said Croatia will not accept or accommodate asylum seekers any longer.

Some of the refugees appear to be stuck on the border between Croatia and Hungary. Reuters reported on Thursday that a convoy of more than 10 buses which was heading towards the Croatian city of Osijek was turned towards the Hungarian border. Refugees were offloaded at the Croatian border village Beremend, according to a Reuters reporter at the scene. Hundreds of migrants were also witnessed on Friday at a petrol station by a road in the Croatian border town of Beli Manastir.

Scuffles between refugees erupted on Friday at the Croatian Beli Monastir train station as the people were boarding the trains bound for Zagreb. Some were injured and received first aid.

Some were injured and received first aid.

Dozens of refugees staged a silent sit-in protest at the Serbian-Hungarian border near the town of Horgos on Friday. They held placards which read: “We don’t have houses anymore. We will live here,” and “This is shame for Europe.”


The site was a scene of violence on Tuesday, when police used water cannon and teargas to push back refugees attempting to enter Hungary.


Milanovic said on Friday he has called a session of Croatia’s National Security Council. Interior Minister Ranko Ostojic told N1 Television that “it’s a matter of time” before Croatia closes all borders.

Columns of asylum seekers were expected to turn to Slovenia, however the Interior Ministry said on Friday that Slovenia does not intend to open a corridor for the refugees heading to Western Europe to pass through.

“At the moment we have no basis on which we could form a corridor,” Interior Ministry state secretary Bostjan Sefic told reporters.

#GREECE Germany Agrees Bailout Banks Reopen Monday for Business ‘ @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport#GREECE July.17: Germany has just signed and agreed third bailout and Greek banks will reopen on Monday, but according to a senior government official withdrawal restrictions will remain. “From Monday, the services offered will be widened.

All the banks everywhere will be open,” Deputy Finance Minister Dimitris Mardas told ERT television adding that bank customers “can deposit cash [and] they can transfer money from one account to the other.”

He also noted that if someone doesn’t want to take €60 on Monday and wants to take it on Tuesday, they can withdraw €120 or €180 on Wednesday. Banks in the country have been closed since June 29, after the Greek government imposed capital controls. On Thursday the ECB increased the cap on emergency funding that Greek lenders can draw from their domestic central bank by €900 million.

Following tough negotiations, Greece finally struck a preliminary rescue deal with its creditors on Monday, which is hoped, would help to prevent an imminent financial catastrophe.

VIDEO: RUSSIA-AZERBAIJAN: ‘ Closed door talks on Energy ‘

#AceNewsReport – Featured Post:June.13: The leaders of Russia and Turkey have held talks behind closed doors in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan. They attended the opening ceremony of the first European Games, before discussing energy projects and the Ukrainian conflict.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counteroart recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed large energy projects, such asthe construction of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline and of the Akkuyu nuclear power plant,and the situation in Ukraine, Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov revealed. The leaders confirmed their readiness to bring bilateral trade turnover between Russia and Turkey to $US 100 billion by 2020. In 2014, trade between the two countries exceeded $31 billion.

During a photo session that preceded the talks, the presidents didn’t talk much and only exchanged opinions about the previous day’s opening ceremony. The presidents agreed the ceremony was superb and wished success to the host team of Azerbaijan.

When President Erdogan remarked that none of the EU leaders had attended the event, President Putin replied: “As EU accession candidate, Turkey represented the whole of the European Union.”

The Russian delegation included Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, Energy Minister Aleksandr Novak, head of Gazprom Aleksey Miller, head of Rosatom nuclear monopoly Sergey Kirienko and the Russian president’s senior foreign policy adviser, Yury Ushakov.

In December 2014, after opposition from the EU, Russia announced the scrapping of the South Stream gas pipeline project that would have bypassed the current routes via Ukraine. Moscow presented a new project, the Turkish Stream – a gas pipeline that will pass through Turkey.

This new 1,100-kilometer transportation route will be laid out under the Black Sea from Russia to Turkey. It will deliver Russian gas to Turkey and the EU border. Europe will have to arrange a means of accessing the gas by itself.

The Turkish Stream will consist of four lines with a capacity of up to 63 billion cubic meters of gas per year. Some 16 billion will be reserved for Turkey; the rest will go to Europe when the necessary infrastructure is in place.

In 2014, Russia supplied 27.4 billion cubic meters of gas to Turkey, primarily through the Blue Stream pipeline that also passes across the Black Sea. Russia and Turkey agreed earlier to increase Blue Stream capacity from 16 to 19 billion cubic meters per year.

Tension between Moscow and Ankara had arisen after Putin attended the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the genocide of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire (Turkey), which took place in Yerevan, the capital of Armenia.

President Erdogan had threatened to withdraw the Turkish ambassador from Russia, but the meeting in Baku apparently diffused things. President Putin congratulated Erdogan on his party’s win in Turkey’s parliamentary elections on June 7.

Immigration flows have also been affected by the deterioration of conditions in Syria.

` Golden Dawn Supporters Organise a Pre-election Rally in Athens '

#AceWorldNews – GREECE – April 01 – Around 1,000 Golden Dawn supporters organised a pre-election rally in Athens, Monday, Ruptly reports.

The rally was held near Saint Panteleimonas Greek Orthodox church, which is an area of central Athens mostly populated by immigrants. Golden Dawn supporters sang the party’s anthem and held Greek and Golden Dawn flags.

Earlier on Monday, Antifascists organised a counter rally which was attended to by a high police presence.

Reporting the event (GreekReporter) said Golden Dawn won 18 seats in the Greek Parliament in the June elections and has continued to agitate against immigrants. Scores of civil rights groups, anti-racist movements and intellectuals, including Nobel laureates Dario Fo and Bernard Kouchner, walked through Athens in a silent march from the nation’s legislature to the Acropolis in what they called “a wake-up call” not only for the Greece, but other European nations facing rising tides of far-right extremism.

“We’re not denying the fact that Golden Dawn was elected to Parliament. Nor do we aspire to physically oust them from the chambers of democracy,” said Benjamin Abtan, the chief organizer and president of the European Grassroot Anti-racist Movement.

“But Greeks have to realize that they are neo-Nazis and that their success story will whet the appetite of other far-right extremists in Europe. Racism, anti-Semitism and neo-Nazism are growing without any strong and determined mobilizations from the democrats,” he said.

#Russia : ” Gifts of the Magi Worshipped in Volgograd”

#AceNewsServices says `More than 50,000 People Worshipped `Gifts of Magi’ in Russia‘s Volgograd’

9dari_volxvov_provodi_3More than 50,000 people have so far worshipped the Gifts of the Magi – a Christian relic taken out of Greece for the first time since the 15th century – in the Cathedral of Our Lady of Kazan in the southern Russian city of Volgograd.

“The box with the relic will be open for visitors until 10 a.m. Moscow Time February 5, after midnight February 4,” Sergei Ivanov, a spokesman for the regional diocese, said Tuesday.

“On Wednesday morning, the relic will be taken from Volgograd’s Cathedral of Our Lady of Kazan to the airport and then it will head for home, to the Agiou Pavlou (St. Paul’s) monastery on Mount Athos,” Ivanov told Itar-Tass.

According to the Gospel of Matthew, Biblical Magi, or Wise Men, were led by the Star of Bethlehem to the place where the baby Jesus was born. They brought Christ gold, which was a gift to kings, frankincense, a sign of veneration, and myrrh, used to anoint the deceased, thus venerating Jesus as King, God and Man.

Warming centers and feeding stations have been opened for believers, with temperatures in the city reaching minus 20 degrees Celsius.

The relic was brought to Volgograd on Monday.

The event is important for the city, where two suicide bombings killed 34 people and injured more than 70 others in attacks on a railway terminal and a trolleybus on December 29 and 30, 2013.

The Gifts, kept in the Agiou Pavlou monastery on Mount Athos in Greece since the 15th century, were displayed in Russia on January 7-17, then traveled to Belarus, and were later taken to Ukraine for display in the world-famous Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, or Monastery of the Caves, in Kiev. Over 1.6 million of pilgrims have worshipped the relic in the three countries by now.

The box with the relic has part of the original Gifts: three gold plates with a thin filigree ornament with beads from a mix of frankincense and myrrh attached to it on a silver thread.

Volgograd was a special point in the Gifts’ travel from Greece due to the recent terrorist attacks on the city, Konstantin Malofeyev, the head of the St. Basil the Great Charitable Foundation, which organized and funded the Gifts’ travel to Russia, Belarus and Ukraine, said at an Itar-Tass news conference.

There was a permit to take the relic [out of Greece] for one month, but it was impossible to say no to believers in Volgograd. The Gifts of the Magi were brought here by Patriarch Kirill [of Moscow and All Russia] himself, who arrived in Volgograd to speak to those who came through the tragedy and tell them words of consolation,” Malofeyev said.

Representatives of the Russian Orthodox Church have said the Gifts of the Magi are one of the few relics connected with the earthly life of Jesus Christ that have been preserved to the present day.

Legend has it that shortly before her Dormition, or Assumption, the Mother of God passed the relics to two pious women. Later on, the Gifts were brought to Byzantium, and, after the Turkish conquest of Constantinople in 1453, they were taken to Mount Athos in Greece by Serb Princess Mary.

#Greece : “Earthquake Hits `Greek Island of Kefalonia` on Monday”

#AceBreakingNews says `New earthquake hits Greek island of Kefalonia; 16 people slightly hurt, roads, port damaged. 

Greece EarthquakeATHENS, Greece (AP) — A strong earthquake with a preliminary magnitude between 5.7 and 6.1 hit the western Greek island of Kefalonia before dawn Monday, sending frightened residents into the streets just over a week after a similar quake damaged hundreds of buildings, reviving memories of a disaster in the 1950s’

Authorities said about 16 people had been slightly hurt, mainly by falling objects, while roads, homes and shops were damaged and some areas suffered power and water supply cuts.

Christos Kyrakatos, a resident of one of Kefalonia’s villages, told Greek television that at least one person in his village had been taken away by ambulance. The power and water supply to the area had been cut, and residents who had fled their homes also had to contend with intense bad weather, with strong rain and low temperatures.

Greece Kephlonia Hit By EarthquakeKefalonia Mayor Alexandros Parisis said the port at the island’s second largest town of Lixouri, the closest to the epicenter, had been damaged.

Earthquakes have been rattling Kefalonia constantly for the past week, after a 5.9-magnitude temblor struck the area on Jan. 26, damaging homes and slightly injuring seven people. Since then, thousands of residents have been  spending nights with relatives or in ships sent to accommodate them.

Austerity Kills Political Gain


Austerity (Photo credit: Anne Helmond)

When a government imposes #austerity on the people who have less, than themselves they create a world of haves and have-nots! But this eventually leads to a society of l want what he/she has, and in many cases, l do not care how l get it! In the case of successive governments, this has led from bankers, to politicians and finally to the man or woman in the street! Now we are told there are no longer 3 classes of people in this country, but many more. The real truth is we live not in a society of classes, but in a society of people who lie for a living and call it business!

The fact that disturbs me the most, is people make comments like ” l did not steal or lie a lot” and then try to acquit themselves by relating it to bankers or politicians, siting examples as they proceed to justify their actions! But the biggest lie of all is the use of the word #austerity, as a way to convince us all, it is for our own good! The truth is if you tell people enough times, they will believe it! The real truth is they have asked for it, and now this government has given them what they asked for,so they have nobody to blame but themselves! The fact is in the end this party will be un-cloaked for what they are, and all they gained will be lost!

As their use of the word #austerity, that gave them the upper hand, will kill their political gain! Of course the real losers are the people who are living in our community, who became victims of this governments,#austerity measures!
