#AceNewsServices – UKRAINE – September 27 – NATO has recently provided the photographs that allegedly proved the presence of Russian troops in Ukraine.
However, the accuracy of the report was quickly compared to widely ridiculed studies of infamous “British scientists.” The provided photos lack such important details as the time and the location of the shooting.
It can be possible that the photos were made on the Russian territory during military maneuvers.
“When the Russian Defence Ministry provided satellite images of the crash site of the Malaysian Boeing, the photos contained the following character attributes: date, time and coordinates of the area.
On those data, specialists easily established what kind of satellites were used to make the photos, and it was confirmed that Russian satellites were staying above the area, when the tragedy occurred.
In case of the American photos that NATO exposed, there was nothing on them. There was no time, no coordinates, no recognizable features of the surface. The location of the shooting was mentioned only in the photo caption. Therefore, it is impossible to prove that the photos and its text characteristics correspond to each other.”

#AceWorldNews AFGHANISTAN(Kabul) September 16 – A Taliban attacker detonated his car bomb next to an international military convoy on Tuesday, killing three troops from the NATO-led force and wounding nearly 20 troops and civilians, officials said.
Security forces in full battle gear administered CPR to wounded comrades shortly after the 8:10 am. blast, which rattled nearby neighbourhoods and sent a plume of smoke high into the sky.
The attack happened only a couple hundred yards from the U.S. Embassy.
#AceWorldNews – BRUSSELS – (Opinion) September 15 – If Scottish voters this week say Yes to independence, not only will they tear up the map of Great Britain, they’ll shake the twin pillars of Western Europe’s postwar prosperity and security – the European Union and the U.S.-led NATO defence alliance.
In breaking away from the rest of the United Kingdom, Scotland would automatically find itself outside both the EU and NATO, and have to reapply to join both, officials from those Brussels-based organizations have stressed.
#AceWorldNews – GERMANY (Berlin) – The German government has no knowledge of any country delivering weapons to the Ukraine government, Reuters quoted Chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman as saying on Monday.

We are not one of those countries and I know of no such thing,” Steffen Seibert said.

#AceNewsServices – NATO – September 05 – Prime Minister David Cameron spoke at the North Atlantic Council meeting on the future of NATO and the need to adapt to face new threats.
Watch the speech
When NATO last met here in the UK in 1990, many would have hoped that its core aim would soon have been fulfilled. After the long years of the Cold War, the vision of a Europe whole, free and at peace seemed within our grasp. Yet today the protection and security that NATO provides is as vital to our future as it has ever been in our past.
We face new and evolving dangers. To the East, Russia is ripping up the rulebook with its annexation of Crimea and its troops on sovereign soil in Ukraine. To the South, an arc of instability bends from North Africa to the Middle East.
Last night we discussed the threat posed by ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) in Iraq and Syria.
So our message is clear. We are united in our condemnation of these barbaric and despicable acts. They should be very clear, these terrorists: their threats will only harden our resolve to stand up for our values and to defeat them.
To do so – and to deal with all the threats we face – our great alliance must now evolve and refocus on the new capabilities that we need to keep our people safe. And I hope that in these sessions today we can agree the changes that are needed. For me there are 3.

#AceWorldNews – BRITAIN (Wales) – September 04 – As World Leaders arrive at NATO Summit it has been reported by Reuters
that NATO’s top official accused Moscow outright on Thursday of attacking Ukraine as allied leaders gathered for a summit to buttress support for Kiev and bolster defences against a Russia they now see as hostile for the first time since the Cold War.
U.S. President Barack Obama and his 27 allies meeting at a golf resort in Wales will also discuss how to tackle the Islamic State straddling parts of Iraq and Syria, which has emerged as a new threat on the alliance’s southern flank, and how to stabilise Afghanistan when NATO forces leave at year’s end.
"We are faced with a dramatically changed security environment," NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen told reporters on arrival at the summit. "To the east, Russia is attacking Ukraine."
His statement stepped up Western rhetoric against Moscow and set the tone for a two-day meeting marked by a return to east-west confrontation 25 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
