Expert Leonkov explained why Poland and Romania are dangerous for Russia

Photo: Global Look Press

Position areas of American missile defense systems are located in Poland and Romania. The leadership of these countries is under the complete control of Washington and is favored in every possible way.

The editor of the Arsenal of the Fatherland magazine Oleksiy Leonkov, in an interview with Ukraine.ru, recalled that military exercises have been held in Poland and Romania since May 1. Warsaw reported that they would last a month. The Polish army warned that military equipment would be moving along the roads at that time. Residents were asked not to take pictures of her.

“These kinds of provocative actions, which they call “exercises”, can provoke anything, but Russia has made it clear that this kind of provocation ends in a retaliatory strike,” – the expert noted.

Moscow is closely watching the exercises, which, however, were announced in advance. If they were unscheduled, the Ministry of Defense would have spoken out. The department is silent, which means everything is under control.

Leonkov added that provocations are possible, but the Russian troops are now in constant combat readiness. Also, no one canceled the special regime in which nuclear weapons were brought.

After the attack on the Russian ambassador in Warsaw, Sergei Andreev, the Federation Council of the Russian Federation allowed the level of the Russian diplomatic mission in Poland to be lowered.

Kissinger called the condition for regime change in authoritarian countries

The former secretary of state expressed concern that authoritarian and democratic countries are multiplying new types of increasingly destructive and technically sophisticated weapons. Kissinger called on Washington to avoid escalating conflicts

Various circumstances, including the threat of the use of nuclear weapons, can force the leadership of the United States to act to change regimes in aggressive authoritarian countries. This was stated by former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger in an interview with the Financial Times.

Given advances in technology and the destructive power of existing weapons, he said, the desire for regime change could be forced by the hostility of other countries. At the same time, Kissinger noted that Washington should avoid situations that could lead to an aggravation of conflicts.

“We must understand that there are differences in ideology and interpretation [of facts between authoritarian regimes and democracies]. We should use this understanding to assess the importance of the problems that arise, and not make it the main point of confrontation, unless we are ready to make regime change the main goal of our policy. Kissinger said.

The former politician also expressed concern about the growing power of new types of weapons created by both authoritarian and democratic countries. Its use, Kissinger believes, could lead to “a catastrophe of unimaginable proportions.”

Kissinger reproached the international community for avoiding discussing actions after the use of such weapons. However, the hitherto ignored topic will inevitably become one of the subjects of the new diplomatic and military agenda, said the former US national security adviser.

Moody's has previously reviewed a hypothetical scenario for a conflict between Russia and NATO. According to experts, a military escalation is unlikely, including because of the severe humanitarian, political and economic consequences. GDP growth in these countries will be severely reduced due to “destruction of infrastructure, a decline in production and a decrease in consumer demand,” and increased uncertainty in the markets will lead to an increase in the risk of bankruptcies of individual financial institutions, a shortage of liquidity and an increase in social tension both in NATO countries and in Russia, according to Moody's.

The General Staff of Belarus reported details of the activities within the framework of the announced second stage of checking the combat readiness of the troops.

The Ministry of Defense of Belarus announced, among other things, the formation of territorial defense units in the Grodno and Brest regions. It also follows from the statements that Minsk intends to respond to the activity of not only NATO.

Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Belarus Viktor Gulevich said that the grouping of up to 20,000 people created by the Ukrainian Armed Forces “also requires a reaction from us.” According to him, in order to ensure the security of the country in the southern direction, units of the “special operations forces are deployed in three tactical directions.”

DPA learned about the EU’s refusal of sanctions on the transportation of Russian oil

The decision has been postponed for now. At the same time, according to the interlocutors of the agency, the ban on European companies from insuring oil tankers carrying Russian oil is still part of the planned sanctions

The ban on the transportation of Russian oil is no longer included in the new package of European Union (EU) sanctions being developed against Russia. This was reported by the DPA agency, citing diplomatic sources in the EU.

According to the agency, in order to make a decision to include this provision in the sanctions package, further coordination is required at the international level, including agreement within the G7. (G7). At the same time, Greece, Cyprus and Malta oppose this measure, as they fear that it could unilaterally put their shipping companies at a disadvantage.

However, according to DPA interlocutors, the ban on European companies to insurance for oil tankers carrying Russian oil is still part of the planned sanctions against Russia.

The day before, on May 9, Bloomberg also reported on the EU plan to soften the sixth package of sanctions and reject the ban on the transportation of Russian oil. The lack of a unified position among the G7 countries played a major role in the decision to abandon this ban, the agency's sources specified.

Since the beginning of Russia's military operation in Ukraine, the EU has already introduced five packages of sanctions that affected Russian companies, banks, government officials, and assets of the Central Bank. However, the EU has not been able to resolve the issue of a ban on the import of Russian oil since March, fearing a lack of oil reserves and rising prices for it.

In early May, the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, announced that the sixth package of EU sanctions should include phasing out Russian oil by the end of 2022 and cutting off a number of banks from SWIFT. Bloomberg and Reuters also reported that Brussels is proposing to ban European courts from providing services related to the transportation of Russian oil to third countries.

He explained that the rapid adoption of the embargo would affect world oil prices. In order for the package to be adopted, all 27 EU countries must agree on it.

The press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov, speaking about the possible refusal of the EU from Russian oil, warned that this decision would “hit everyone.” . At the same time, the United States, which had previously refused supplies, according to him, will remain on its own and “will feel much better than the Europeans.”

Berlin announced plans to “forever” abandon energy resources from Russia

According to the head of the German Foreign Ministry, economic dependence on Russia “does not lead to security”, therefore Germany will completely abandon Russian energy sources in the future

Senators consider Lithuania’s decision to recognize Russia as terrorist as Russophobic

Lithuania followed Russophobic sentiment when it recognized Russia as a terrorist state, the senators said. They believe that Russia is fighting terrorism, while Lithuania should check the EU and the US *

The decision of the Lithuanian Seimas to recognize Russia as a terrorist state— this is an act of Russophobia, senators Vladimir Dzhabarov and Sergey Tsekov told RBC.

“I think this is an absolutely ugly action. To accuse the great neighbor of being a terrorist state— just immoral. It was Russia that fought international terrorism in the Middle East, Syria, Iraq, and the North Caucasus,— said Vladimir Dzhabarov, First Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on International Affairs.

According to him, the Seimas of Lithuania completely thoughtlessly “works out the task as part of another Russophobic action.” He believes that recognition as a terrorist country will clearly worsen relations between Russia and Lithuania, but the latter will regret such a decision.

“It is clear that Russian-haters have gathered in Lithuanian politics, this was confirmed by many their previous decisions, including this one. Of course, they dream that Russia would disappear altogether as a state, believing that they will then live well, but they are mistaken,— said Sergei Tsekov, member of the Federation Council Committee on International Affairs.

He proposed to the Seimas of Lithuania to assess the activities of the EU countries. “Now they boast of a developed economy, but all this is at the expense of hundreds of millions of lives of the citizens of their colonies, who for many years were actually in their slavery,” — Tsekov noted.

The United States did not remain without the senator's attention, which, in his opinion, has unleashed more than a dozen military operations and wars against other countries over the past 70 years.

“They could be condemned for the invasion of Iraq, for the situation in Libya, in Syria, for the bombing. But they don't. They— a two-faced dwarf state, which is trying to somehow declare itself with such decisions. As they say: “Pug, know that she is strong, that she barks at the elephant”, — Tsekov counted.

On May 10, the Seimas (Parliament) of Lithuania adopted a resolution recognizing Russia as a state that “supports and carries out terrorism.” This decision was connected with Russia's military actions in Ukraine and “systematic serious war crimes and crimes against humanity, against the Ukrainian people.”

Parliamentarians mentioned in the document the cities of Bucha, Irpen, Mariupol, Borodianka and Gostomel, where Ukrainian authorities found the bodies of civilians. At the same time, the Russian side denied the involvement of the Russian Armed Forces in the killings.

The Sejm also called the Russian military operation in Ukraine a genocide and called for the creation of a Special International Military Tribunal to “investigate and assess war crimes” following the example of the Nuremberg or Tokyo Tribunals.

The Lithuanian parliament called for the Russian leadership to be held accountable and invited other countries to apply the principle of universal jurisdiction to crimes in Ukraine. It allows the use of national law in relation to certain crimes, if necessary in the interests of the international community.

The Russian Foreign Ministry has not yet commented on the decision. However, at the end of April, the official representative of the department, Maria Zakharova, said that Russia would not leave the measures of an “idiotic nature” unanswered. Then US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said that the United States was considering the possibility of recognizing Russia as a country— sponsor of terrorism.
