Published 2019-06-08 21:24:28 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Headline-News, Latin-America, Russia, Venezuela

St. Petersburg – Caracas has created a mechanism to make payments with Russia in rubles, the Venezuelan vice president for economic affairs and Minister of Industry and National Production, Tareck El Aissami, said. “We have evaluated all the mechanisms because US unilateral sanctions prevent the use of the traditional system and payments in dollars, so we have established a payment mechanism to comply with our commitments to Russia, and it will be in rubles,” El Aissami said during the St. Petersburg International Forum (SPIEF).

Published 2019-06-08 20:37:42 by Joaquin Flores in Donbass, Donetsk, Eurasia, Headline-News, Ukraine

DONETSK – Commenting on the situation of increased violence with Ukraine, head of the DPR Denis Pushilin explained that since the new president of Ukraine, Zelensky, came to power, the number of ceasefire violations in the Donbass has actually increased several times – he has failed to establish control over Ukrainian punitive operation. Pushilin explained today in a major revelation that while Zelensky is nominally the constitutional head of the Ukrainian state, he does not possess the actual authority over the military that one would normally associate with the ‘commander in chief’ of the armed forces.  “Why doesn’t Zelensky give… Continue ->

Published 2019-06-08 20:17:50 by Paul Antonopoulos in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Finance, Headline-News, Russia, United-States

ST. PETERSBURG – President of Russia Vladimir Putin said today during his speech at the Economic Forum that is taking place in St. Petersburg that the role of the dollar as the global reserve currency requires a redefinition. Putin said that it is necessary to redefine the function of the US currency, which has turned into a tool of pressure against the rest of the world, and that confidence in the dollar is diminishing. “[…] It is obvious that these profound changes require the adaptation of global financial institutions and a redefinition of the function of the dollar, which after… Continue ->

Published 2019-06-08 19:11:31 by Paul Antonopoulos in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Headline-News, Latin-America, Russia, United-States, Venezuela

The head of Rostec pointed out that Russia is building in Venezuela a production plant for Kalashnikov assault rifles and ammunition. “Because of the sanctions, [the construction]… Continue ->

Mexico’s AMLO DEFEATS Trump in Failed Trade War Gambit

Published 2019-06-08 17:47:29 by Joaquin Flores in Anglo-5, Headline-News, Latin-America, Mexico, United-States

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump walked back previous threats against Mexico after a firm position taken by Mexican president AMLO, as Trump announced late Friday that he had suspended plans to impose tariffs on Mexico. In a face-saving maneuver, he tweeted that Mexico “has agreed to take strong measures” to stem the flow of Central American migrants into the United States, but there is nothing from the Mexican side which concretely indicates anything has changed on their general position on limitation, already in effect. The result of this charade is a “U.S.-Mexico Joint Declaration”, released by the State Department which… Continue ->

Netanyahu upsets Trump : “Deal of the Century” once again postponed

Published 2019-06-08 13:51:03 by Guest Author in Headline-News, Iran, Israel, Mena, Opinions, Palestine, Politics, Syria, United-States

For the United States peace plan on a Palestinian-Israeli settlement, or, as Donald Trump likes to call it , “the deal of the century”, difficult times have come once again. A new problem developed in the already well-known difficulties in Trump’s implementation of the initiative, in the form of a categorically negative position of the Palestinian leadership with respect to the peace plan. This time though, it’s the Israelis up in arms. After the victory of Israeli Prime Minister, Likud right-wing leader Benjamin Netanyahu in the early April 9 parliamentary elections (he has been in power since March 31, 2009), he failed to form… Continue ->

Kerch 2.0: Military exercises in the Black Sea – Unnecessary provocation or escalation of conflict?

Published 2019-06-08 12:38:25 by Guest Author in Eu, Eurasia, Headline-News, Nato, Russia, Ukraine, United-States

By Vladimir Gujanicic for FRN – Given that the war on the land in the south-east of Ukraine has long since faded into a mysterious position without the promised victory of Ukrainian politicians, the leadership of Ukraine was placed entirely for the purpose of a weapon in the war against Russia. Without reaching that victory, the Ukrainian authorities, in coordination with the Western countries, have raised tensions with various provocations holding the conflict open for the international community, not wanting to recognize the factual situation. The curiosity of such decisions is primarily due to the fact that these actions do… Continue ->

Why Armenia sides with Assad in Syria’s civil war

Published 2019-06-08 07:00:58 by Joaquin Flores in Armenia, Eurasia, Headline-News, Mena, Opinions, Syria

BY IDO VOCK – When Armenia sent a few dozen troops to support the Russian military mission in support of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad earlier this year, few eyebrows were raised. Thousands of foreign soldiers from powers as disparate as the United States and Turkey are already stationed in the country. A handful more sappers and medical officers from the embattled nation of the South Caucasus hardly represents a dramatic upset in the balance of power in war-torn Syria. Officially, Yerevan claims its 80 non-combat personnel are in Syria in support of the sizeable ethnic Armenian community, which numbered 100,000… Continue ->

At plenary session, Putin condemns the US attempts to control the world’s trade

Published 2019-06-08 01:44:12 by Tom Winter in Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia, United-States Putin: US extends its laws over the whole world On Friday, Russian President Vladimir Putin condemned US policies in the plenary session of this year’s International Business Forum in St. Petersburg (SPIEF), which, in his view, make the whole world the domain of their laws. According to the Russian leader, there is a danger that the universalist model of globalization will degenerate into a “parody, a caricature of itself”. “In this case, general international rules are abolished by the laws, administrative and judicial mechanisms of a country or group of influential countries. “I note with regret that the United… Continue ->
