Peskov said that countries are crossing the boundaries of reason in the abolition of Russia

Dmitry Peskov: countries are overstepping the bounds of reason in denying Russia The Kremlin found it impossible to cancel Russia, as well as the state awards of Lithuanian skaters who, after completing their careers, worked in the country. The President of Lithuania withdrew awards from Lithuanian skaters for participating in Tatyana Navka's show /webp” media=”(max-width: 320px) and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2), (max-width: 320px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)” >

Margarita Drobyazko and Povilas Vanagas (from right to left)

Many countries go beyond the bounds of reason in denying Russia, but this is impossible. This was stated by the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov on the TV channel “Russia 1”.

This is how he commented on the decree of Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda on the exclusion of figure skaters Margarita Drobyazko and Povilas Vanagas from the list of those awarded the Order of Gediminas after their participation in Tatyana Navka's show “Swan Lake” in Sochi.

“Indeed, we see that many countries are crossing some boundaries of reason. Can Tchaikovsky be denied? It is forbidden. Could Russia be denied? It is forbidden. Whether you want it or not— it's just not possible. Is it possible to deny the awards that were earned by athletes who, by the way, competed for the same Lithuania, who made the Lithuanian flag hoist? Also impossible. You can annul it by decree, but this is impossible, — said Peskov.

Earlier, Honored coach of the USSR in figure skating Tatyana Tarasova called “idiotic” the decision of Nauseda to deprive Drobyazko and Vanagas of state awards. “Firstly, he did not give them these awards, he should not take them away. Presidents change all the time, but we remain, — she said.

Margarita Drobyazko— a native of Russia, after the collapse of the USSR, she began to play for Lithuania in a pair with Povilas Vanagas. In 1993, she received Lithuanian citizenship. Together with Vanagas, they won bronze medals at the 2000 World Championships, and also competed at the Olympics five times.

Skaters live in Russia, after completing their careers, they performed in ice shows and performances more than once.

Gitanas Nauseda, in turn, considered that obtaining Lithuanian citizenship for Drobiazko “in the current conditions looks like a pitiful farce.” He acknowledged that Lithuanian laws do not provide for the deprivation of citizenship “for defiling the name of Lithuania”, but pointed out the need to “initiate legislative changes”.

“Democracy must be able to defend itself, otherwise it will no longer democracy»,— concluded the President of Lithuania.

Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Stafft: The US did not restrict the issuance of visas to Russians According to the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Consular Affairs Julie Stafft, Russian citizens can apply for a visa at any American embassy around the world

The official recalled that the US Embassy in Russia is currently not accepting applications for visas due to restrictions. Last year, in response to U.S. sanctions and yet another expulsion of diplomats, Moscow imposed restrictions on the employment of citizens of Russia and other countries by the American embassy. The US Embassy, ​​in turn, has reduced the number of consular services provided.

August 9, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in an interview with The Washington Post, called on the West to ban all Russians from entering. He suggested “holding the entire population accountable” Russia, isolating him. Russians should “live in their own world until they change their philosophy,” the Ukrainian leader is convinced.

The press secretary of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, commenting on Zelensky's proposal, said that such initiatives “do not have a very good odor either.” In his opinion, the irrationality in the thinking of the Ukrainian side “goes off scale”.

German government spokesman Steffen Hebeshtreit said on August 10 that the EU is discussing the initiative of a number of European countries on visa restrictions for Russians. Earlier, in particular, Belgium, Poland, and Estonia called for a ban on issuing visas to Russian citizens. The issuance of tourist visas has already been suspended by the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.

Former US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul proposed introducing for Russians who receive a visa, a special tax for the restoration of Ukraine. In response, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, asked him how many US citizens pay such fees for the restoration of Iraq or Belgrade.

The diplomat said that NATO can justify the use of nuclear weapons

Diplomat Belousov: NATO can be expected to justify any use of nuclear weapons The United States “reserved the opportunity” to use nuclear weapons “at any moment, for any reason and against any state” under the pretext of threatening their interests or their allies, Andrei Belousov believes

NATO countries in the future can be expected to justify any use of nuclear weapons, says Andrei Belousov, deputy head of the Russian delegation to the 10th Review Conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT). His words are quoted on the website of the Permanent Mission

of Russia to the UN.

“By the way, there is every reason for such a conclusion. The doctrinal documents of the United States prescribe the use of nuclear weapons under the pretext of threatening their own vital interests or those of their allies, — Belousov pointed out.

Thus, the United States “reserved the opportunity” use nuclear weapons “at any moment, for any reason and against any state”; under this pretext, the diplomat noted.

“And this is the real threat of a nuclear war. Especially considering that the United States remains the only state that has put its nuclear arsenal into practice,— he added.

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said that his country could use nuclear weapons “only under extraordinary circumstances, to protect the vital interests of the United States, allies and partners.”

In early March, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called the deployment of American nuclear weapons on the territory of European countries unacceptable. According to him, this is contrary to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. Lavrov also noted that “the vicious practice of joint nuclear missions with the participation of non-nuclear NATO countries persists.” Thus, the possibility of a nuclear strike on Russia is being worked out, the minister argued. “It's high time to bring American nuclear weapons home, and the associated infrastructure in Europe to be completely eliminated,” — he said.

Bloomberg: Russia wins oil confrontation despite sanctions

American analysts called Russia the winner in the energy confrontation.

Russia wins the confrontation in the oil market.

This opinion was voiced in his material for Bloomberg by columnist Javier Blas.

According to him, this fact is obvious in any approach.

p>

For example, Moscow's advantageous position is clearly evidenced by the volume of Russian oil production, which returned last month to the figures at the beginning of the year – to about 10.8 million barrels per day.

“This is not a surge: July was the third consecutive month of recovery in oil production”, – Blas said.

Also, according to him, Moscow is also helped by the price of oil: at first, Russian raw materials were forced to be sold at deep discounts, but now the price is recovering at higher values.

Thus, the expert concludes that the energy sanctions imposed against the Russian Federation do not work.

The indicators that Russia has achieved are political, not market ones.

For example, last spring The West was sure that OPEC would refuse to cooperate with Russia, but in the end everything turned out differently.

The observer predicts an aggravation of the energy crisis in November, which will affect consumers.

According to journalist, Europe still talks publicly about wanting to cut off energy supplies from Russia.

“Privately, they [European countries] must acknowledge the trouble this stance threatens to cause their economy”, – Blas is sure.

He is sure that with a cold snap, the West will moderate its ardor in an effort to provide support to Ukraine.

Earlier, TopNews wrote that Bloomberg wrote that anti-Russian sanctions dealt another blow to energy security in Europe.

Journalists pointed to the aggravation of the situation in the Old World.

When and where to watch the Perseid meteor shower in summer?

Northern Hemisphere residents will be able to see the Perseid meteor shower on the night of August 12-13. Under favorable weather conditions and the absence of urban illumination, it will be possible to observe up to 100 meteors per hour, or 1-2 meteors per minute, the press service of the Moscow Planetarium said.

When will the summer meteor shower peak?

The Perseid meteor shower starts in mid-July and lasts all of August. This year, its peak will occur on August 12.

Where should I look?

To notice the Perseids, you need to look to the northeast. The source of the Perseids is located on the border of the constellations Perseus, Giraffe and Cassiopeia. 

“Radiant Perseid is located on the border of the constellations Perseus, Giraffe and Cassiopeia. Look for Cassiopeia (inverted M), to the left and below the horizon shines the bright star Capella (Alpha Aurigae) — between Cassiopeia and Capella lies the Perseid radiant. In August, around midnight, it is just in the northeast. That's where you need to look. Meteors will sort of fly out of the radiant, and you can observe them all over the sky, », — planetarium experts advise. 

Where is the best place to watch?

The meteor shower can be observed immediately after sunset and before dawn. It is best to watch the shooting stars away from major cities. The planetarium recommends driving 30 km away from settlements, and from large cities such as Moscow, more than 100 km, since strong sky illumination will not allow you to see more than half of the meteors. 

As noted in planetariums, this year the conditions for observing the Perseids are unfavorable, since the peak occurs on the night of the full moon.

Do need astronomical instruments for observation?

No, they are not needed. No astronomical instruments are needed to observe the meteor shower, the meteor shower is observed with the naked eye. 

The next time the Perseid meteor shower can be seen in a year, since the orbits of the Earth and the shower have a constant region of intersection with each other.   

What other meteor shower can be seen in August? 

From August 3 to August 25, Russians will be able to observe the Kappa Cygnids meteor shower in the constellation Cygnus. Like the Perseids, this meteor shower is only visible in the Northern Hemisphere. The peak of the meteor shower will be on August 18, then you can see three meteors per hour.

I want to go to jail! Why does Marina Ovsyannikova make her way into the “prisoners of the regime”?

In 1998, the premiere of the painting by Alla Surikova “I want to go to jail!” took place. According to the plot of the film, the main character, an ordinary Russian mechanic who unwittingly became involved in crime in Russia, decides to hide from problems in prison. But not in the domestic, but in the European one.

“Punishment up to 10 years”

Something like this story can now be observed from the ex-employee of Channel One Marina Ovsyannikova. The woman is making titanic efforts to end up behind bars.

According to RIA Novosti, Ovsyannikova's lawyer Dmitry Zakhvatov, she was charged in the case of fakes about the RF Armed Forces: “She was charged under item “d” part 2 of article 207.3 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, which provides for punishment of up to 10 years in prison… The reason for initiating the case was a picket on Sofiyskaya embankment in Moscow. ; on Channel One during a live broadcast with a poster. 

A few seconds later, Ovsyannikova was taken out of the studio. Subsequently, the court fined her 30 thousand rubles.

The story was enthusiastically played in the Western media, and the woman herself was hired by the German publication Die Welt. 

Photo: http://www.youtube.com/

“Moscow abomination”

But, much to the dismay of the “fighters against the regime”, the new heroine from Ovsyannikova did not work out. Worse, she simply couldn't cope with her duties in the new place.

In addition, she had no time to start working at Die Welt, when radicals from the Ukrainian diaspora in Berlin went to a rally demanding her dismissal. Their logic is simple — one who worked on Russian TV cannot be good by definition. No explanations, acts of repentance and going to the pro-Ukrainian rally did not help — Ukrainians living in Germany continued to be hostile towards it.

It turned out even worse with the visit of Ovsyannikova to Ukraine — there she was completely described as an “FSB agent.” “What is she doing in Ukraine? That's a good question. Because, obviously, it is already worth revising the rules by which Russians are allowed into Ukraine. The question must be answered: what is this journalist doing in the German media and why was she allowed into Ukraine?, — the Minister of Culture of Ukraine was indignant Oleksandr Tkachenko.

Even a visit to his homeland in Odessa was not very successful. The official representative of the Odessa Regional Military Administration Sergey Bratchuk described Ovsyannikova as a “Moscow abomination”. 

In an interview with the German publication Bild, the woman stated that the whole family turned away from her — mother, husband and son, and only with her daughter does she continue to communicate. Back in June, Ovsyannikova assured that she would not go to Russia, as she was afraid of the “revenge of the regime.”

“State propaganda did not need to do anything to discredit Ovsyannikova. She coped with all this perfectly herself»

But in early July she nevertheless flew to Moscow — according to her own version, in order to sue her husband's rights to her daughter.

Even Ksenia Sobchakspoke rather caustically on this score: “Of course, children must be fought for, but Ovsyannikova’s statements are becoming more and more ostentatiously heroic:“ When I arrive in Moscow, I will not cowardly hide and be silent. It is beneficial for the authorities that all protesters go abroad. They are deliberately squeezed out of the country. Perhaps I will be arrested right at the airport. And if they arrest you, Marina, are you sure that this will make you a good Russian? Well, and one more observation: state propaganda did not need to do anything to discredit both Ovsyannikova herself and her act. She herself, liberal activists, Ukrainian activists who boycotted her coped with all this perfectly.

The arrival of Ovsyannikova was followed by the Western media, but they were disappointed — no one grabbed the woman at the airport and handcuffed her.

But the lady's further behavior convinced her that she did not want to reunite with any daughter. Judging by how abruptly she made the decision to return to Russia, she was made clear that she could count on further assistance only as a “prisoner of the regime of Putin“.

“I don't understand why we're here at all”

In fact, in order to get a term for fakes, you need to show considerable effort. The first case, as a rule, is punishable by a warning or a fine, the second — a fine, and only then can the case go to criminal prosecution.

This is exactly what happens with Ovsyannikova. After her return, she began to arrange regular “performances”, and in July 2022 she was fined 50,000 rubles by the Meshchansky Court for publicly distributing fakes about the actions of the RF Armed Forces.

On the social network, regarding this verdict, the woman wrote the following: “I think that the verdict should be acquittal. Here is what I told the judge on the merits of the charges brought against me: “I don’t understand at all why we are here and are wasting our time. Everything that is happening now — real absurdity. You snatched my phrase from an interview in defense of Ilya Yashin. Why are you judging me? I believe that this lawsuit is completely fabricated. It is organized for the purpose of intimidation”".

What else to do with it?

If a person has set himself the task of going to jail at all costs, then it is very difficult for him to interfere with this. In Russia, many demanded criminal punishment for Ovsyannikova even after her live jumps, but she was treated more than humanely. And this seems to have disappointed those who oversaw this project. And now the ex-editor of Channel One is trying to get into the “prisoners of conscience”, as in the old joke — even a stuffed animal, even a carcass.

Taiwan rejects China’s ‘one country, two systems’ plan for island

On the eve of China published a “White Paper”, which outlined the main theses of its policy in the field of national security. Taiwan categorically disagreed with the PRC model of “one country, two systems” proposed back in the 1980s

Taiwan rejects the “one country, two systems” model proposed by Beijing in a white paper published earlier this week. Taiwan Foreign Ministry spokesman Joanne Ou told Reuters.

“Taiwan firmly rejects the idea of ​​”one country, two systems.” Only the people of Taiwan can decide their own future,— he said.

Taiwan (Republic of China) declared in 1949 its independence from China after the defeat of the Kuomintang in the civil war against the troops of Mao Zedong. In Beijing, the island is considered a province of the PRC.

“White Book”— a document published by China every two years that outlines its national defense strategy. The thesis “one country, two systems” regarding Taiwan was proposed in the early 1980s by the former head of the PRC, Deng Xiaoping.

Video

In the “White Paper” published on August 10, The PRC authorities also allowed the use of force in Taiwan in the absence of progress in the peace efforts aimed at reunification. In particular, such a decision may be taken in connection with the possible interference of external forces and those who support the independence of the island state.

“No one should underestimate the firm determination, unwavering will and great capabilities of the Chinese people in protecting the state sovereignty and territorial integrity», — underlined in the document.

The aggravation of the situation around Taiwan occurred due to the visit to the island of the Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi in early August. She called the trip to Taiwan a sign of US support “bright and dynamic”; democracy. The Chinese authorities criticized her visit, accusing the United States of violating the “one China” principle and launching large-scale military exercises with shooting near the island.

US considers Chinese military exercises 'irresponsible provocation' and called for an immediate halt to the maneuvers. According to Politico, the US military command tried to contact colleagues from the Chinese army, but Beijing did not respond to requests. At the same time, Washington emphasized that Pelosi's trip was in line with the One China policy.

The Russian Foreign Ministry considered Pelosi's visit to Taiwan a provocation and an attempt to distract from domestic problems and the situation in Ukraine. “What is the need for this wild action now? This is required by the political situation,»,— claimed Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.

After that, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that Russia's position on Taiwan speaks of “a high level of Sino-Russian strategic partnership.” “Beijing is ready to strengthen strategic interaction with Russia”, — he emphasized.

Reuters learned about the failure of Biden’s plan to revise tariffs with China

According to the agency, due to inflation in the United States, the Biden team tried for several months to reduce duties on Chinese imports, but after the escalation in Taiwan, all initiatives were suspended

Joe Biden

The administration of US President Joe Biden made attempts to revise trade duties with Beijing, but China's military exercises around Taiwan nullified the initiative, Reuters reports.

Due to record inflation in the United States, the Biden team has been trying for several months to reduce duties on Chinese imports imposed by former US President Donald Trump, according to agency sources. However, according to them, the situation around Taiwan has changed Washington's mind about the possible revision or elimination of tariffs.

“I think Taiwan has changed everything,”— told a Reuters source familiar with the discussion of the initiative.

Another spokesman pointed out that the unilateral removal of some US tariffs on Chinese imports has been delayed in part because China has shown no willingness to retaliate or honor its obligations under the trade deal.

A spokesman for the Chinese embassy in Washington told Reuters that economic and trade relations between the two countries are facing “serious” tensions. problems. “The (Pelosi's) visit undermined the political foundation of Sino-US relations and will inevitably lead to a serious disruption of exchanges and cooperation between the two parties,” he said.

Back in 2019, the Trump administration imposed 10 percent tariffs on $300 billion worth of goods from China and 25 percent on $250 billion worth of goods. In total, tariffs were imposed on more than 2,200 categories of imports, including many critical industrial components and chemicals. . When Biden took office in January 2021, he only reinstated 352 of them.

Another aggravation of relations between Beijing and Washington occurred due to a visit to Taiwan by Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi in early August. She called the trip to Taiwan a sign of US support “bright and dynamic”; democracy. The Chinese authorities criticized her visit, accusing the United States of violating the “one China” principle, and began large-scale military exercises with shooting near the island.

Taiwan declared secession from China during the civil war in 1949. Beijing does not recognize the independence of the island and considers it its province. The administrative status of the region has not been settled.

Officially, the United States has no relations with the Taiwan authorities, but since 1979 a law has been in force between them, according to which Washington can supply defensive weapons to the region. At the same time, the American authorities have repeatedly stated that they support the “one China” policy.

Latvia declares Russia a sponsor of terrorism

Latvia declared Russia a sponsor of terrorism and called on the EU to stop issuing visas to Russians Latvia also called on EU countries to immediately suspend the issuance of tourist and entry visas to Russians and Belarusians

The Saeima of Latvia recognized Russia as a country— sponsor of terrorism. This announcement was posted on his website. Riga also called on EU countries to immediately suspend the issuance of tourist and entry visas to citizens of Russia and Belarus.

Rihards Kols, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Seimas, said that Russia “for many years supported and financed terrorist regimes and organizations in various ways.” In particular, the country— “the largest supplier of weapons to the regime of Bashar al-Assad in Syria.” In addition, Riga recalled the poisoning of former GRU colonel Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in British Salisbury in 2018, as well as the Malaysian Boeing crash in the Donetsk region in 2014. The Russian authorities have repeatedly denied allegations of involvement in these events.

Similar “brutal, immoral and illegal tactics” Russia has also chosen Ukraine, Koles said. The Seimas recalled that since the beginning of the special operation, 12 million Ukrainians have left their homes, more than 5 million have left the country.

The Latvian authorities also believe that Russia “deliberately continues to deepen the global food crisis.” They noted that less than a day after the conclusion of the “grain deal” Russia hit the Odessa port. Thus, the country “has shown disrespect for its obligations,” the Sejm said.

The Russian Ministry of Defense emphasized that the blow was inflicted on the military infrastructure— ship and a warehouse with missiles. “This is in no way related to the infrastructure that is used to fulfill the agreements and export grain. Therefore, this cannot affect the beginning of the shipment process in any way, — Presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said.

In May, Lithuania recognized Russia as a terrorist state. Its Sejm stated that they consider the Russian special operation a genocide, and advocated the creation of a Special International Military Tribunal to “investigate and evaluate war crimes”, proposing to take the Nuremberg or Tokyo Tribunals as a basis.
