Zakharova spoke about the supply of drugs by Ukrainian security forces to Russia

photo: Russian Foreign Ministry

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Saturday that no one should have any doubts that who helps the Ukrainian security forces to supply drugs to the Russian Federation.

According to her, Ukrainian special services found potential drug dealers in Russia in Ukraine and supplied them with money and equipment.

The diplomat expressed the opinion that “the emphasis was placed on working with young people.”

For this reason, “instead of classic opiates, Ukrainians distributed synthetics that were fashionable among teenagers: salts and speeds.”

As the diplomat noted, “the income from illegal sales did not go to the unfortunate Ukrainian couriers,” who, according to Zakharova, were intimidated with reprisals over families, “and into the clutches of the SBU.”

She stressed that before being sent to Russia, the detained drug dealers had a conversation with a curator from the SBU.

The representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry described all this in her telegram channel.

“Techniques are not new”, she noted. And she recalled how “in the 19th century, the West, in order to achieve quasi-colonial trade preferences,” began to sell Indian opium among the Chinese.

The Chinese authorities tried to limit the “drug cartels of Britain”, but London responded by saying that “with the support of Washington unleashed opium wars against the Chinese.”

In Ukraine, as noted by the diplomat, “the history of the drug expansion of the West to the East is hardly so well known.” Therefore, Zakharova believes, “no one should have any doubts about who is helping the Ukrainian security forces to supply drugs to Russia.”

She said that this is an undeclared war that the Ukrainian special services are waging against the Russian Federation since 2014. And she gave figures: in 2014, synthetic drugs accounted for only 5% of illegal drug trafficking, and last year – already 60%. At the same time, Ukrainians became their main suppliers.

Sechin announced the destruction of the foundations of law that developed after World War II

Sanctions destroy the right to protect property, conduct business and defend in court, the head of Rosneft believes. According to him, the restrictions threaten the financial and industrial sectors, and as a result, the global market 17/756555388609179.jpg” alt=”Sechin announced the destruction of the foundations of law established after World War II” />

Igor Sechin

Sanctions have destroyed the foundations of law that have developed in the world following the results of the Second World War, — to the protection of property, freedom of doing business, judicial protection, etc. This was stated by the head of Rosneft; Igor Sechin at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).

«Principle of the rule of law <…> is the foundation of any modern constitutional democracy. The destruction of this fundamental principle, the application of sanctions by a narrow group of countries, led to the destruction of the basic foundations of the legal system, — he said (quote from RIA Novosti).

Video

Sanctions threaten the institution of contractual obligations, destroy the judicial and legal system, the financial, transport and industrial sectors, and as a result— global market, says Sechin.

According to the head of Rosneft, the global economic crisis is not the result of sanctions, but is exacerbated by restrictive measures. “Back in 2018, we talked about the fact that the policy of sanctions and ultimatums in the hydrocarbon markets would lead to the appearance of a permanent “sanction premium” in the price of oil, and noted the risks of new price records, & mdash; he added.

The United States, according to Sechin, resorts to sanctions without reason and considers them “some kind of magic wand”; to achieve political and economic goals. He said that under pressure from the United States, Europe is refusing gas from Russia and is turning to other countries that cannot compete with it on price. According to the head of Rosneft, the European Union is committing “energy suicide”, which will have long-term consequences.

These are a partial embargo on the supply of Russian oil, a freezing of assets of the Central Bank, a ban on financial transactions, sectoral restrictions and sanctions against a number of individuals. The United States adopted several rounds of restrictions, within which it banned the import of oil and gas from Russia.

Sechin warned about the consequences of Europe’s “energy suicide”

According to him, as a result of the “imposed” sanctions, Europe cannot compete with the United States not only in the political but also in the economic sphere. Sechin also stressed that the consequences will be long-term on the consequences of Europe's “energy suicide” />

Europe is committing “energy suicide” with sanctions against Russia, which will have long-term consequences, the head of Rosneft said at the SPIEF Igor Sechin

“We are already seeing a decline in its economic potential, loss of competitiveness and direct losses for investors,”— he said.

Video

According to Sechin, anti-Russian sanctions were imposed on Europe. As a result, it “finally lost its subjectivity and chances of becoming not only a political, but also a competitive economic pole, an alternative to the United States.” Europe's level of competitiveness has fallen after it became the region with the highest energy cost in the world, he explained.

The US banned imports of Russian oil and gas in March. President Joe Biden stressed that Washington does not expect such a decision from European countries, because they are more dependent on supplies from Russia.

In Brussels, after several weeks of discussions, in early June, an embargo was nevertheless imposed on the import of Russian oil and oil products by sea. The ban provides for transitional periods: until December 5, one-time transactions are allowed for the import or execution of oil purchase contracts concluded before June 4, for oil products the deadline— February 5, 2023. The embargo did not affect crude oil, which is supplied to Europe through the Druzhba pipeline. In its northern part, the fuel goes to Germany and Poland, in the southern & mdash; to the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. These countries will be able to continue purchasing for an indefinite period.

In addition, after Moscow obliged “unfriendly countries” (the list includes the entire EU) to pay for gas in rubles, many of them have abandoned this scheme.

A barrel of Brent oil on June 17 cost $115. Gas in Europe on June 16 rose in price to $1.5 thousand for the first time since March.

Inflation in the eurozone in May reached a record 8.1%— mainly due to rising energy prices (they rose by 39.2% compared to 37.5% in April). Prices for food, alcohol and tobacco rose by 7.5%.

Russian President Vladimir Putin called Europe's energy policy an “economic auto-da-fé” and noted that as a result of “chaotic actions” European countries, their economies are being damaged, and the revenue of the Russian oil and gas sector is growing.

Ukraine allowed the resumption of negotiations with Russia in August

According to the head of the Ukrainian delegation, David Arakhamia, in August Kyiv may conduct “counter-offensive operations in some places”, which would strengthen its position in the negotiations. He excluded the resumption of the dialogue in the current situation

David Arakhamia

Ukraine's position at the negotiating table with Russia may change by the end of August, suggested in an interview with Voice of America (included by the Ministry of Justice in the register of media-foreign agents) head of the Ukrainian delegation David Arakhamia. In his opinion, then Kyiv will be able to return to negotiations and speak from a position of strength.

Arakhamia added that a counterattack by the Ukrainian military is expected at this time: “We do not want to share our plans with Russia, because they can see it in open sources. But I think we will carry out counteroffensive operations in some places.

Another possible condition for the start of negotiations, the head of the delegation called the voluntary return of Russian troops to the positions they held before February 24. He ruled out the resumption of dialogue in the current conditions, emphasizing that Ukraine would not accept the loss of territories, “it is legally impossible.” “But we can consider a political agreement like the one we proposed for consideration in Istanbul. Thus, we would not raise the issue of Crimea for a certain number of years, for example»,— told Arakhamia.

In turn, the deputy from the Servant of the People party Yevgenia Kravchuk told the radio company that Kyiv is in contact with Moscow on humanitarian issues. “Another component of the negotiations— it's food security: as you know, our ports are blocked. We discussed the corridors that might be organized with the help of NATO ships that would guard 60 miles to neutral waters, this could be a solution, — she added.

After the start of the Russian military operation, the delegations of the two countries held several rounds of negotiations. The most productive was the meeting in Istanbul at the end of March, after which the parties exchanged written proposals for a settlement.

However, in May, both Moscow and Kyiv announced the suspension of the process. The head of the Russian delegation, presidential aide Vladimir Medinsky specified that the dialogue was frozen at the initiative of Ukraine. President Vladimir Putin noted that the Ukrainian side changed its position in the negotiations and moved away from the Istanbul agreements.

Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on June 17 that Putin was open to negotiations and “it would be great if European leaders influenced the leadership of Ukraine in order to encourage them to take a sober look at the situation.

Arakhamia has already said before that in order to resume discussions, Ukraine's negotiating position needs to be strengthened, in particular, by arms supplies. The President of the country, Vladimir Zelensky, called the return of territories lost during the hostilities to Ukraine as a condition for negotiations. After that, the Russian Foreign Ministry questioned the sincerity of Kyiv's desire to find a peaceful resolution to the conflict.

Johnson urged to continue supporting Kyiv amid “Ukraine fatigue”

It is important that the UK continues to support Ukraine, Johnson said following his second visit to Kyiv since the start of the Russian military operation. Zelensky also spoke about “fatigue” in the world due to events in the country

Boris Johnson

London must continue to support Kyiv, despite the danger of “Ukraine fatigue”; as the fighting escalates. This was announced to journalists by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson upon his return from the Ukrainian capital.

According to Johnson, in such conditions, it is necessary to demonstrate that Britain is giving Ukraine the help it needs. “The Russians are moving forward inch by inch and it's vital for us to show that Ukraine can and will win, it's true,” — he said (quoted by Reuters).

The British Prime Minister arrived in Kyiv on June 17. He met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and proposed starting a training program for the Ukrainian military outside the country. In accordance with it, it is planned to train up to 10,000 Ukrainian soldiers every 120 days in frontline combat skills, cybersecurity and anti-explosion tactics, as well as basic medical training.

This is the second Johnson's visit to the country after the start of the Russian military operation. Earlier, he met with Zelensky in Kyiv on April 9: then the provision of additional financial and military assistance to Ukraine was discussed. Johnson promised that the UK would supply Ukraine with 120 armored vehicles and anti-ship systems, as well as additional loan guarantees from the World Bank.

Zelensky also spoke about the growing fatigue in the world from what is happening in Ukraine. “Of course, everyone wants to push us to some result, which is definitely undesirable for us, because we are not asked. And desirable for those or other parties. They probably have their own interests, both financial and political. Fatigue is growing, people want some kind of result for themselves. And we need a result for us,»— he said on June 6 (quote from RBC Ukraine). This is how the president reacted to reports that the US, Britain and the EU are discussing ways to resolve the situation in Ukraine without the participation of representatives of Kyiv (CNN wrote about this, in particular).

Mikhail Podolyak, an adviser to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine, said that some Western politicians are suggesting that Kyiv give up part of the territories in order to stop the military operation that Russia launched on February 24. He stressed that Ukraine would not make such “compromises”. Offers to Kyiv to “simply stop resistance” some representatives of African, Asian and Arab countries also acted, said Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba, calling such an initiative unthinkable.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on May 2 that Moscow is not demanding that Kyiv surrender, but wants Zelensky “to give the order to release all civilians and stop resistance.” According to the minister, Russia does not have a goal of regime change in Ukraine, it is rather an “American specialty”. President Vladimir Putin, speaking the day before at the SPIEF, said that all the tasks of the military operation would be solved. In February, the head of state justified its beginning with the desire to carry out “demilitarization and denazification”; neighboring country, as well as to protect the inhabitants of Donbass from the policy of “genocide”, which, according to Putin, was carried out by the Ukrainian authorities.
