Published 2019-08-09 15:30:48 by Paul Antonopoulos in Anglo-5, China, Eurasia, Headline-News, United-States

BEIJING – The US accused China of having a “criminal regime” after Beijing revealed personal information of US diplomat. The information leak would have occurred after the diplomat met with the leaders of the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement, US State Department spokesman Morgan Ortagus said. “I don’t think that leaking an American diplomat’s private information, pictures, names of their children, I don’t think that is a formal protest, that is what a thuggish regime would do,” US State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said at a news briefing in Washington.

VIDEO: Russia reviving former Soviet scientific and industrial might

Published 2019-08-09 15:15:40 by Drago Bosnic in Eurasia, Finance, Headline-News, Politics, Russia, Science

MOSCOW – The Soviet Union once had the second-largest economy on the planet. One of the reasons for this was the country’s massive network of so-called “monotowns”.

This means that most employments (except for service to residents like schools and shops) are by the main company. These specialized areas were responsible for most of the Soviet scientific innovations, but they have been rusting since the collapse of USSR. Now, this has come to an end. The government is going to diversify a monotowns’ life…. Continue ->

In early May, Fort Russ News ran a story explaining why the Russian Armed Forces still have a strategic parity (and even superiority in some areas) with not just the United States of America, but with the entire North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

NATO military spending in 2016. A staggering 921.5 billion US dollars have been spent in 2016. alone. If we were… Continue ->
