' Imposing Sanctions on Russia Contradicts US Interests and Damages Bi-Lateral Trade '

#AceWorldNews – MOSCOW – July 17 – Imposing sanctions on Russia and blaming it for destabilizing Ukraine contradicts US national interests, President Putin said at the BRICS summit in Brazil, emphasizing that declared support of Ukrainians should not be limited to the country’s oligarchs.

Speaking to the press following the BRICS summit in Brazil, Vladimir Putin was asked to comment on the new package of sanctions against Russia announced just minutes earlier by the US President.

“We aren’t the ones introducing sanctions, you should ask them,” Putin said.

“But as for sanctions, they usually have a boomerang effect, and without a doubt will force US-Russian relations into a corner,” he elaborated. “This is a serious blow to our relationship. And it undermines the long term security interests of the US State and its people.”

Putin said that it is “regrettable” that “our partners” have chosen to impose new sanctions, but Russia “will not close doors to negotiations.”

“We’re open to finding ways out of this situation,” Putin said. “I really hope that common sense and the willingness to resolve all issues through peaceful diplomatic means will prevail.”

Prince Charles ‘Compares Putin To Hitler’


Not helping UK/Russian friendship

Why can’t the Royals shut up? We have the Duke of Edinburgh (My City and the Queens jester and husband) who is the mouth of stupid Royalty now this fool Charles has gone and totally knocked UK/Russia ties to the ground! His Mum’s (The Queen) Nuclear Arsenal is in my country, not England! Royal Family, please, give it a rest you fools!

Prince Charles has reportedly compared Russian President Vladimir Putin to the Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler over his actions in Ukraine. The Prince of Wales’ alleged remark about Mr Putin came during a four-day tour of Canada when he spoke to a woman who fled the Nazis and lost family members in the Holocaust. A spokesman for Clarence House said: “We do not comment on private conversations. “But we would like to stress that the Prince of Wales would not seek to make a public political statement during a private conversation.” Charles was being shown around the Museum of Immigration in Halifax, Nova Scotia, along with Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. The royal couple paid tribute to World War Two veterans and their families, and during the course of the visit they spoke to museum volunteer Marianne Ferguson. Ms Ferguson told the Prince she fled to Canada with her family in 1939, not long before Hitler annexed the Baltic coastal Free City of Gdansk.

After meeting Charles, the 78-year-old told the Daily Mail: “The Prince said ‘And now Putin is doing just about the same as Hitler’.”I must say that I agree with him and am sure a lot of people do. “But I was very surprised that he made the comment as I know they [members of the Royal Family] aren’t meant to say these things. “I told the Prince that while my family and I were lucky to get a permit to travel, many members of my relatives had permits but were unable to get out before the war broke out on September 1. “They were sent to the concentration camps and died.” The Mail reported that the Prince made his comments while surrounded by media and they were heard by several witnesses. Mr Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov told Sky News: “I don’t know anything about it. I can’t really trust the Daily Mail as a source.”


Protesters in Kiev have also compared Putin to Hitler

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg backed Prince Charles on his LBC Radio phone-in, saying: “Prince Charles should be perfectly entitled to express views in the confidence that he’s expressing them privately.” But Labour (Co-op) MP Mike Gapes, who represents Ilford South, said the Prince “should abdicate” if he wants to make controversial statements. He said on Twitter: “If Prince Charles wants to make controversial statements on national or international issues he should abdicate and stand for election. “In constitutional monarchy, policy and diplomacy should be conducted by parliament and government. Monarchy should be seen and not heard.” UKIP leader Nigel Farage, who has backed Mr Putin’s anti-EU stance in the past, said: “Prince Charles has made those comments – I know some people feel that way about Putin. “I think there’s a difference. The difference is right from the very start Hitler was expansionist, and we haven’t see very much evidence of that until now from Putin and arguably, what’s happened in the Ukraine is because he’s been poked with a stick by the rest of the world.”


Mr Putin is in Shanghai meeting with Xi Jinping and other world leaders

Charles and the Russian leader are due to meet next month when they attend the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy on June 6. Mr Putin has faced international anger over Russia’s actions in neighbouring Ukraine, including the controversial annexation of Crimea. In March, former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reportedly said Mr Putin’s claim to be be defending ethnic Russians in Crimea was “what Hitler did back in the ’30s”. She later backtracked, claiming she was not making a direct comparison but that Russia’s behaviour was “reminiscent” of Germany in the build-up to the Second World War. Prince Charles has been known for speaking his mind on issues such as architecture and the environment, but he rarely makes his feelings known on diplomatic matters. There is an ongoing legal battle over the publication of letters he has sent to politicians, with the attorney general concerned their release could compromise the Prince’s neutrality and create constitutional problems.

Deadly gun battles have broken out in the…

Deadly gun battles have broken out in the eastern Ukrainian city of Slavyansk as separatists seize government buildings in at least one other city in the region. Ukraine’s Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said one officer was killed and another five injured as security forces attempted to retake occupied security buildings. In a statement on his Facebook page Mr Avakov said there was also an “unidentifiable number” of casualties among the protesters, who are being supported by around 1,000 civilians. Russia’s RIA news agency confirmed at least one activist had been killed in the raid.

Video below, all out Civil war is happening, all out War is close

Separatists are currently guarding barricades outside the occupied buildings and have set up checkpoints on roads leading into the Slavyansk. Ukraine’s acting President Oleksandr Turchynov has mobilised the army and said a “full-scale anti-terrorist operation” was being launched. He offered an amnesty to protesters who surrendered their weapons by Monday morning. He accused Russia of being behind the unrest to justify expanding its military control beyond Crimea, but this is rejected by the Kremlin.

The US has threatened to bolster existing sanctions against Moscow if the trouble continues. It also blames the country for inflaming tensions in eastern Ukraine. “I think we’ve seen that the sanctions can bite,” said Samantha Power, America’s ambassador to the UN. “If actions like the kind we’ve seen over the last few days continue, you’re going to see a ramping up of those sanctions.”

Media, who are based in Slavyansk, said the centre remains relatively calm and reports of fatalities were thought to be linked to clashes well into the outskirts. It’s reported that civilians, some of them elderly, have been stood at one checkpoint since late last night to act as “human shields” to protect pro-Russian protesters from Ukrainian security forces. Elsewhere local media is reporting that protesters have seized the mayor’s office in the eastern city of Mariupol. One report said activists entered the building unhindered after around 1,000 people took part in an independence rally. It said barricades were erected around the office and the Ukrainian flag removed. If confirmed that would bring the total number of cities where administrative buildings are under the control of separatists to five.

Masked men, wearing unmarked camouflage uniforms and carrying special-issue assault rifles, seized the local police headquarters in Slavyansk on Saturday. They later took control of the security service building in the city, which lies some 90 miles from the Russian border. Also on Saturday gunmen seized a police station in the eastern city of Kramatorsk following a shoot-out. Other groups began their occupation of security buildings in Donetsk and Luhansk last weekend. Protesters in the region, which has a large ethnic Russian population, hope to follow in the footsteps of the Crimean Peninsula and force a referendum on joining the Russian Federation.

The area was a strong bastion of support for ousted President and Kremlin ally Viktor Yanukovych and many residents fear they will be suppressed under the new Western-friendly interim government in Kiev. Moscow has also warned any Ukrainian military aggression against ethnic Russians will derail top-level talks on the crisis scheduled to take place in Geneva next week. Western leaders have expressed concern that the latest unrest strongly echoes the events which led to Russia’s annexation of Crimea last month following an overwhelmingly-backed referendum. The United States has pledged its “strong support” for Ukraine’s new government and urged Russia to de-escalate tensions. It has also called on Moscow to withdraw its troops from Ukraine’s eastern border, where Nato claims up 40,000 soldiers are now stationed. The EU and US have imposed a number of sanctions on Russian and Ukrainian individuals, but are yet to directly target Russia’s economy

` Crimea to have ` Three Official Languages ‘ of Russian, Ukrainian and Crimean Tartar ‘

#AceWorldNews – MOSCOW – March 18 – Nationalists executed the coup in Ukraine. They tried to revise the language policy, and that would have undermined the rights of minorities, Putin says.

The Russian-speaking population in Ukraine faced constant humiliation, the President stressed.
We always believed in good neighbourly relations with Ukraine, but the situation developed in another direction, the Russian President says.

Sevastopol is a Russian fortress and a host for the Russian Black Sea Fleet, Putin notes.
The Russian President stressed that Russia has vital interests in Crimea.

Putin says that it is important to ensure the right of all ethnicities in Crimea, including Crimean Tartars, and measures to complete rehabilitation of Crimean Tartars should be taken.

There will be three official languages – Russian, Ukrainian and Crimean Tartar.

` Putin’s Reasons for `Military Force’ at Media Conference in Moscow’

#AceBreakingNews says that latest news sources Putin: Deploying military force is last resort, but we reserve right,assessment was voiced at a media conference in Moscow.

cropped-header-breaking-news.jpgThere was an unconstitutional coup and an armed takeover of power in Kiev, Russian President Vladimir Putin stated. Russia is puzzled why there was a need for it at a time when Viktor Yanukovich had conceded to all opposition demands.

Putin stressed that the Ukrainian people had a legitimate reason to protest against Yanukovich’s power, considering the overwhelming corruption and other faults of his presidency.

But he objected to the illegitimate way his ouster took place, because it undermined the political stability in the country.

He said that while he personally was not fond of months-long streets protests as a means to pressure the government, he sympathized with the Maidan demonstration members, who were genuinely outraged with the situation in Ukraine.

But at the same time he warned that what happens in Ukraine now may be a replacement of one group of crooks with another, citing the appointments of certain wealthy businessmen with questionable reputations.

Yanukovich is certainly powerless in Ukraine, but legally speaking he is the legitimate president of the country, Putin said. The way the new authorities in Kiev replaced him did not enhance their credibility.

Putin, who was given a mandate by the Russian senate to use military force to protect civilians in Ukraine, said there is no need for such an action yet.

He assured that the surprise military drills in Russia’s west which ended on Tuesday had nothing to do with the Ukrainian situation.

Putin cited the actions of radical activists in Ukraine, including the chaining of an official to a stage as public humiliation and the killing of a technician during an opposition siege of a parliamentary building, as justification for Russia to be concerned for the lives and well-being of people in eastern and southern Ukraine.

Incidents like those are why Russia reserves the option of troop deployment on the table.

The Russian president stressed that Russia wants to see equal participation of all citizens of Ukraine in defining the future of the country. The resistance to the authorities in Kiev, which is evident currently in the eastern and southern Ukraine, shows clearly that currently Kiev does not have a nationwide mandate to govern the country.

Asked about criticism of Russia over its stance on Ukraine, Putin dismissed the accusations that Russia is acting illegitimately. He stated that even if Russia does use force in Ukraine, it would not violate international law.

At the same time he accused the United States and its allies of having no regard to legitimacy, when they use military force in pursuit of their own national interests. He cited the campaigns in Iraq and in Libya as examples of such behavior.

As for the sanctions Russia faces over Ukraine, Putin said those threatening them should think of the consequences to themselves if they follow that path. In an interconnected world a country may hurt another country if it wishes, but it would be damaged too.

Threats are counterproductive in this situation, Putin warned.

He added that if G8 members choose not to go to Sochi for a planned G8 summit, that would be up to them.

Putin dismissed the notion that the uniformed armed people without insignia who are currently present in Crimea are Russian soldiers.

He said they are members of the Crimean self-defense forces and that they are no better equipped and trained than some radical fighters who took part in the ousting of Yanukovich.

#Sochi : “Russia `How the US Media Distort’ the Real Truth”

#AceWorldNews say according to VOR it is American Media that Villianise Putin and almost everything about Russia covered by US media is distorted, Stephen Cohen, a world-known American scholar of Russian studies and author of the article Distorting Russia published in The Nation claims.

Also, “When Putin makes an offer that is in the best national security interest of the US, the first impulse it to reject it”, he says.

In your opinion, how did Western media change their rhetoric towards Russia and President Vladimir Putin?

Let me explain why I wrote the article which is a very sharp criticism of the way the American media has covered not only Putin but almost everything about Russia since Putin became president back in 2000. I didn’t write the article to help Russia.

I wrote the article to help American national security because I believe that this distorted media coverage of Putin and of Russia is losing opportunities for American-Russian cooperation in areas that are vital to the American national security.

That is everywhere from Syria, and Iran, and Afghanistan, to the struggle against the terrorism that struck Russia and America, and that it gets worse and worse and we see it even in the coverage of Sochi.

#Sochi : “Putin Meets Yanukovich on sidelines of the `Olympic Games’ contents of talk were not revealed”

#AceWorldNews says the presidents of Russia and Ukraine had a private meeting in Sochi on the sidelines of the Olympic Games, a spokesman for Putin said.

The contents of the talk were not revealed, but if the two leaders chose to discuss politics rather than sports, the political turmoil in Ukraine, and Russian aid to its western neighbour, are likely to be on the table.

#Sochi : “Georgia will not meet Putin during Sochi Olympics”

#AceWorldNews says Georgia’s president, Georgy Margvelashvili, will not be travelling to the Sochi Olympic Games according to a statement released on Thursday. “The Georgian official delegation will not attend the Olympic Games in Sochi,” Vano Machavariani, Margvelashvili’s foreign policy adviser, told Reuters. “Georgia will be represented in Sochi by our sportsmen and representatives of the Georgian Olympic Committee,” he said.

The Kremlin previously said that Margvelashvili could meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin there in what would have been their first meeting since the five-day war in 2008, when Mikhail Saakashvili was president. Margvelashvili was elected late last year.

Sochi Winter Olympics: “Russia’s Hidden Agenda”

#AceWorldNews says following Monday’s terrorist bombings only 400 miles away from the site of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, have a geopolitical back story involving implied threats from Saudi Arabia’s intelligence chief Prince Bandar bin Sultan to Russian President Vladimir Putin last summer when Bandar was pressing Putin to withdraw his backing for the #Syrian government.

Bandar bin Sultan, Secretary-General of the Na...

According to a diplomatic leak detailing the Bandar-Putin meeting in Moscow on July 31, Bandar suggested that Putin’s agreement to abandon the #Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad would lead Saudi Arabia to restrain its Chechen terrorist clients who have attacked Russia targets for years. Putin reportedly grew furious, interpreting Bandar’s offer as a warning that the Sochi games would be threatened by terrorism if Putin didn’t comply.

At the time, I was even told that Putin warned Saudi Arabia of potentially severe consequences – suggesting military retaliation – if Bandar’s implied warning was followed up by actual terrorist attacks like the ones in Volvograd on Monday, killing more than 30 people.

Of course, it is always hard to trace specific terrorist acts back to their origins and many terrorist cells operate with much autonomy. But Putin has staked much of his prestige on a successful Olympics in Sochi, and he also would risk losing face if it were perceived that Bandar had executed a terrorist plan to disrupt the Winter Olympics and that Putin was powerless to stop it.

According to the leaked diplomatic account of last summer’s meeting, Bandar sought Russia’s cooperation on several Mideast concerns, including Syria, and told Putin, “I can give you a guarantee to protect the Winter Olympics in the city of Sochi on the Black Sea next year. The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us.”

English: RIYADH. Before the beginning of the R...

English: RIYADH. Before the beginning of the Russian-Saudi talks. Русский: ЭР-РИЯД. Перед началом российско-саудовских переговоров. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Putin reportedly responded, “We know that you have supported the Chechen terrorist groups for a decade. And that support, which you have frankly talked about just now, is completely incompatible with the common objectives of fighting global terrorism that you mentioned. We are interested in developing friendly relations according to clear and strong principles.”

Besides safety for the Sochi Olympics, Bandar raised the potential of Saudi cooperation with Russia on oil and other investment matters, saying, “Let us examine how to put together a unified Russian-Saudi strategy on the subject of oil. The aim is to agree on the price of oil and production quantities that keep the price stable in global oil markets,” according to the diplomatic account.

I was told by a source close to the Russian government that this mix of overt inducements and implied threats infuriated Putin who barely kept his anger in check through the end of the meeting with Bandar. Putin viewed Bandar’s offer to protect the Sochi Olympics as something akin to a Mafia don shaking down a shopkeeper for protection money by saying, “nice little business you got here, I’d hate to see anything happen to it.”

Putin then redoubled his support for the Syrian government in response to Bandar’s blend of bribes and warnings. The source said Russia also issued its own thinly veiled threats against the Saudis. The Saudis may have substantial “soft power” – with their oil and money – but Russia has its own formidable “hard power,” including a huge military, the source said.

Bandar and Terrorism:

Over the years, Bandar has often treated the issue of “terrorism” as a situational ethic, an ambivalence well-honed since the days when Saudi Arabia and the Reagan administration teamed up to pour billions of dollars into the Afghan mujahedeen and their Arab jihadist allies fighting Soviet troops in the 1980s.

The anti-Soviet effort in Afghanistan brought to prominence Saudi national Osama bin Laden and the terrorists who later consolidated themselves under the global brand, al-Qaeda. In the 1980’s, these roving jihadists’ were hailed as brave defenders of Islam and even “freedom fighters,” but – in the 1990’s – they began targeting the United States with terrorist attacks, leading up to 9/11 in 2001.

At the time of the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington, Bandar was the Saudi ambassador to the United States and was so close to the Bush family that he was nicknamed “Bandar Bush.” Bandar was also very close to the bin Laden family. After the attacks, Bandar even acknowledged having met Osama bin Laden in the context of bin Laden thanking Bandar for his help financing the Afghan jihad project.

“I was not impressed, to be honest with you,” Bandar told CNN’s Larry King about bin Laden. “I thought he was simple and very quiet guy.”

President Obama confirms death of Osama bin Laden

However, immediately after 9/11, Bandar undermined the FBI’s opportunity to learn more about the connections between Osama bin Laden’s relatives and the perpetrators of 9/11 when Bandar arranged for members of the bin Laden family to flee the United States on some of the first planes allowed back into the air – after only cursory interviews with FBI investigators. The only segment of the 9/11 Commission’s report to be blacked out was the part dealing with alleged Saudi financing for al-Qaeda.

Now, as chief of Saudi intelligence, Bandar appears to be back in the game of coercive geopolitics, arranging weapons for some of the most brutal Syrian rebels and Arab mercenaries operating inside Syria, while offering carrots-and-sticks to foreign leaders who are seen are malleable toward Saudi regional interests. The technique may have failed with Putin but had greater success in lining up the French behind Saudi opposition to a negotiated agreement with Iran on its nuclear program.

As a repressive monarchy that preaches the ultra-conservative Wahhabi version of Sunni Islam, Saudi Arabia is bitterly opposed to the democratic reforms of the Arab Spring and the growing influence of Shiite Islam, which now stretches from Iran through Iraq and Syria to the Hezbollah enclaves of Lebanon.

President Mohammed Morsi

Saudi Arabia backed the military coup in Egypt that ousted the elected Muslim Brotherhood government of Mohamed Morsi. The Saudis also have stepped up assistance to Sunni-dominated rebels in Syria seeking to overthrow the Assad dynasty that is based in the Alawite religion, a branch of Shiite Islam.

The commonality of interests between Saudi Arabia and Israel has given rise to a de facto alliance between the Saudi monarchy and the Jewish government of Israel. Though historically enemies, Israel and Saudi Arabia are now on the same page in backing Egypt’s military regime, in viewing Iran as their principal adversary, and in wanting a rebel victory in Syria.

The shifting sands of Middle East interests also have pushed the United States and Russia closer together, with the former Cold War rivals sharing an interest in tamping down disorder across the region. President Putin and President Barack Obama cooperated in reaching a tentative nuclear deal with Iran and in convincing Syria’s Assad to surrender his chemical weapons. Putin and Obama are pressing for Syrian peace talks, too.

Now, however, a new complication has been introduced: Islamist terrorist attacks aimed at undermining the Sochi Olympics. If Putin concludes that the Saudis are behind these bombings – that the attacks are the equivalent of a Mafia don having a store torched after the owner rebuffed an offer of “protection” – then the issue of Russian retaliation could suddenly be on the table.
