​Supporting Saudi Arabia is supporting violations of human rights

​Supporting Saudi Arabia is supporting violations of human rights | Global politics | Scoop.it
Has there ever been a more vile and repugnant regime than the gang of bloated potentates that rules Saudi Arabia?
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The NATO powers started a hysteric campaign against Russia before the Sochi Games, using a law protecting minors of age which explicitly banned gay activities in schools, etc. The world hadn't been exposed to the US-sponsored coup in Ukraine, but Russophobia was promoted in the Western media and political class: all Western "leaders" boycotted the opening in Sochi (except their only gay PM from Belgium!). Nonetheles, a couple of months later, Prince Charles and Presidents Obama and Hollande travelled to Saudi Arabia to kiss its King's hand, in an outrageous display of hypocrisy, as SA savagely persecutes gays...

Russia urges UNSC to stop ‘speculation around MH17 flight’

Russia urges UNSC to stop ‘speculation around MH17 flight’ | Global politics | Scoop.it
At a UN Security Council meeting, Russia demanded the international community to stop speculation about the MH17 flight, unless someone is willing to contribute info important to investigation, such as air traffic controller’s records concealed by Kiev.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

“So far, only Russia transparently and significantly contributed to the investigation of this tragedy. From the other side we hear only half-hints and no information,” said the diplomat, once again wondering if Kiev was planning to release the recording of Ukrainian air traffic controllers that guided MH17 flight.

Ukraine must ensure gas transit to Europe - EU energy chief

Ukraine must ensure gas transit to Europe - EU energy chief | Global politics | Scoop.it
Russian-EU gas talks have progressed, but no solution was reached Friday over Russia and Ukraine’s gas standoff. Moscow says their $100 gas discount to Kiev stands, and the EU doesn’t want gas negotiations to be used to escalate the Ukraine crisis.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"Moscow says their $100 gas discount to Kiev stands," Does it? Do thieves and murderers deserve Russian money, while they are killing Russians every day? It will be used to continue the killing, or to enrich the Ukrainian oligarchs even further.

UN: Ukraine conflict death toll hits 2,600, civilians ‘trapped inside conflict zones’

UN: Ukraine conflict death toll hits 2,600, civilians ‘trapped inside conflict zones’ | Global politics | Scoop.it
At least 2,593 people have been killed in eastern Ukraine since the start of the Kiev’s military operation against anti-government forces there started in mid-April, according to a new estimate by the Office of the UN High Commissioner on Human Rights.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

As long as the US and its satellites in the UNSC deny the slaughter of the civilians in the Donbass and encourage it by granting diplomatic cover to the Fascist rulers in Kiev, the slaughter will continue. Where is the classic Western outrage against regimes killing their own citizens and bombing cities? The West has lost all compass of morality and has shamed itself by consorting with the Ukrainian ultranationalists seeking to impose an ethnic cleansing in Ukraine.

​From Minsk to Wales, Germany is the key | Global politics | Scoop.it
The road to the Minsk summit this past Tuesday began to be paved when German Chancellor Angela Merkel talked to ARD public TV after her brief visit to Kiev on Saturday.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The Empire of Chaos, needless to say, does not want a political solution – with a neutral Ukraine economically tied to both the EU and Russia; economic/trade integration across Eurasia is anathema.

Куда большую угрозу для страны несут националистические организации, в которых состоят многие украинские высокопоставленные чиновники. Различные группировки правого толка будут препятствовать мирному разрешению конфликта, уверен автор материала.

RUSSIANS LIED ABOUT MH17

  

Whi ch is why the Western media and politicians speak no longer of it, and the investigation has been buried from public view? They are expecting the resistance to collapse and East Ukraine to be "pacified" in devastation, and then they will come out with the near truth, explaining it was a "tragic error", as they already hinted. But their problem is that the resistance doens't surrender and it is for them more and more difficult to hide the truth. Blaming Russian is the stupidest thing, they provided evidence, the West and Kiev only words.

ISIS: US-made monster running amok in Middle East

ISIS: US-made monster running amok in Middle East | Global politics | Scoop.it
In its desire to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad, the US channeled arms and funds to the Syrian rebels, many of whom splintered off and formed the Islamic State, which is now giving the US far more problems than it had bargained for.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

“We should be focused on defending the United States of America. That’s why young men and women sign up to join the military, not to, as you know, serve as Al-Qaeda’s air force.”

Российские военные стали далеко не первым подразделением, случайно оказавшимся на территории другого государства. The Washington Post публикует материал, в котором рассказывает об аналогичных случаях. Так, швейцарские военные по ошибке вторглись на территорию Лихтенштейна, обстреляли заповедник и устроили там пожар. А британские военнослужащие в 2002 году в ходе учений пытались взять штурмом испанский пляж.
