US & Russia work together to end conflict in Syria

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris examine how the Russian and US military appear to be coordinating their moves in Syria so as to prevent Turkey from moving further into Northern Syria, while using diplomacy to bring the Kurds into the framework of a united Syria.

According to AMN (https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/...), Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) Mark Milley and Russian Chief of General Staff Valery Gerasimov held a phone conversation on Monday to discuss the situation in Syria, the JCS press service said.

“The two military leaders exchanged their views on issues of mutual concern in Syria,” the JCS said in a statement. “The two leaders have agreed to keep the specific details of their conversation secret.”

The Russian Defense Ministry issued a similar statement earlier in the day, providing no details as well.

New Developments in the Skripal Case Reveal it for the Sham it Always Was.

Earlier this month (October 2019) however, the Coroners Court issued a public statement in which is announced that the inquest into Dawn Sturgess’ death had been adjourned indefinitely.

This is an extraordinary development. It means in effect that the whole of the allegations made over the preceding 18 months, about the cause of death, the persons allegedly responsible, and all the political and propaganda barrage that went with it has now effectively being abandoned.

The Coroner’s Court cannot establish to the requisite standard how Ms Sturgess died, much less the identity of any individual or government that might be responsible.

As might be expected, the announcement by the British coroner has been met with a studied silence why the western media. The linking of Ms Sturgess’ death to the alleged activities of two Russian citizens seen in Salisbury on the day the Skripal’s became ill, and the lurid allegations about their alleged activities, have similarly collapsed.

Not another dollar! Russia & Turkey agree on settlements in national currencies

Moscow and Ankara inked an agreement on using Russian rubles and Turkish lira in mutual payments and settlements, the Russian Finance Ministry announced on Tuesday.

The deal is aimed at gradually switching to using national currencies in mutual trade, the ministry said. Trade turnover between the two countries grew by 16 percent last year, reaching $25.5 billion.

According to the ministry, the agreement aims for “further expansion and strengthening of interbank interaction, as well as ensuring uninterrupted payments between business entities of the two countries.”

How The Win-Win-Win-Win Plan For Syria's Northeast Succeeds

The Syrian and Russian operations in the northeast of Syria are going well.

Russian troops prevented attempts by Turkish supported Jihadis to attack Manbij. Russian and Syrian units now also entered Ayn al-Arab/Kobani. Syrian government troops took control of the electricity producing dam in Tabqah and some units set up posts in Raqqa. Other units entered the Conoco and Al-Umar oil fields north of Abu Kahmal and east of Deir Ezzor. Some local tribe which profited from the oil explorations there held a small protest against the return of government control.

The Russian air force in Syria is preventing the use of the Turkish air-force in support of the Turkish attacks. Yesterday a Turkish F-16 entered Syrian air space but retreated when some Russian fighters appeared to hunt for it.

The Russian Masterpiece in Syria: Everyone Wins

Putin is a genius!

Russia’s operation was complicated and required a lot of patience; but thanks to negotiations supervised by Russia, together with the bravery and courage of Syrian soldiers, almost all of the terrorist pockets scattered around Syria have been progressively overcome.

Erdogan currently finds himself boxed in, squeezed in by a collapsing economy, threatened by his allies (the purchase of the Russian S-400 system irritated many in Washington and in NATO): he desperately needs to present some kind of victory to his base.

With Trump, he is desperate to shift attention away from the impeachment proceedings (a hoax), and similarly needs to present some kind of victory to his base.

Erdogan and Trump have also solved the embarrassing internal conflict within NATO between Turkey and the US, probably reestablishing personal relationships (the tough talk from the White House notwithstanding).

Turkish President Plans to Visit Russia's Sochi on October 22 - Erdogan's Office

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is planning to visit Russia's Black Sea resort of Sochi to hold talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin on October 22, the Turkish presidential administration announced on Wednesday.

Erdogan spoke by phone with Putin on Tuesday. The leaders discussed the situation in Syria and the ongoing Turkish Operation Peace Spring on the Syrian territory. At the end of the conversation, Putin invited Erdogan to visit Russia in the coming days.

"Our president plans to pay a visit to Sochi on October 22," the Erdogan's administration said in a statement.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov earlier confirmed that Putin and Erdogan would discuss the developments in Syria in light of the Turkish military operation against Kurdish militants in northeastern Syria during the Turkish president's visit to Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, folks, that's next Tuesday.

And the decision to send VP Pence to Turkey this week, when President Trump had to know, that Erdogan would only talk to him, rather than to his "Second Lewie", was a thoroughly, and painfully, bone-headed decision.

One has to wonder if Putin is going to offer Erdogan an opportunity to join a major Defense Pact with Russia; suggest that Turkey resign its membership in NATO; and have both countries trading in local currencies, rather than in the US dollar.

But if any of this comes down as a result of this meeting, I have to blame it squarely on the head of President Trump, who absolutely misread Erdogan's intentions here.

And please note; as the US government throws former geopolitical friends under the proverbial bus, the more it is running those former friends into the arms of Russia and China, which I think is about to happen to Turkey very quickly, as Erdogan gets cozy with Putin at Sochi.

U.S. Sanctions Could Push Turkey to Leave NATO

Erdo?an’s next decision towards Syria will heavily impact the future of not only the region, but his relations with the U.S. and Russia. With murmurings existing for years now whether Turkey should leave the NATO alliance, these sanctions against Turkey, a country already in a deep economic crisis, will only bring this question to the forefront of debate.

Although the U.S. cites human right abuses as the reason for the sanctions, an allegation that cannot be taken seriously considering their own long list of war crimes, it is likely Trump is ‘punishing’ Erdo?an for his insistence and defiance in buying the Russian S-400 system. This means that the souring relations between Washington and Ankara provides the perfect moment for Russian President Vladimir Putin to consolidate his country’s relations with Turkey.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not know what the US government is thinking about the issue of Turkey, but I do think that Putin is laughing hysterically, at those people "advising" the President, that they never saw the possibility, outlined in the last paragraph, as seriously possible.

John Bolton – Hero of the Resistance or Traitor?

This farce of an impeachment/coup,didn't get going until afyer Trump refused to attack Iran over the drone shootdown. Israeli/Neocon fingerprints all over this!

John Bolton’s part of the story to impeach Trump has reached the end of the first act. The finale will be a doozy… for someone.

A report from the New York Times this morning on Fiona Hill’s testimony before Adam Schiff’s (D – Deep State) kangaroo court casts Bolton as the hero working against Trump’s obvious animus towards his political opponents.

Hill is Trump’s former adviser on Russia, a supremely connected Swamp dweller and Clintonista.

Like Bolton, Hill is someone that should have never been anywhere near President Trump’s cabinet. They were both inserted to ensure that the flow of information to him was kept devoid of anything that would damage pre-existing policies, like fomenting a coup in Ukraine or atomizing Syria or getting to the bottom of the conspiracy to remove Trump from power.

Deep Dive: An Unbiased Overview Of The Trump-Biden Ukraine Scandal

By Aaron Kesel

Scandal-plagued U.S. President Donald Trump and Democratic “wonder boy” candidate Joe Biden have been exchanging political punches over a new scandal that erupted in Ukraine. Trump asked the Ukrainian President to investigate potential corruption involving Joe’s son, Hunter Biden, after a prosecutor investigating his financial dealings was fired in exchange for billions of dollars in U.S. govt aid organized by Joe Biden as Vice President of the U.S.

Although, the mainstream media wants the public to believe the Bidens “did nothing wrong.” The truth of the matter is Hunter Biden blatantly used his father’s position of power as Vice President for his own financial gain in both Ukraine and China.

However, on the flip side...

One Rocket Provoked the US Withdrawal: Details of the Kurdish-Russian-Syrian Deal

The killing of any US soldier in Syria would effectively have been a nail in the coffin of the US President Donald Trump’s electoral campaign in 2020. France and Britain, who maintain Special Forces in NES, will follow the US forces out of Syria.

The Syrian forces were given orders to deploy in NES following a deal between Russia and Turkey, and between Russia and the Syrian officials, to guarantee the safety of the separatist Syrian Kurds.

The Russian-Kurdish deal consists of the deployment of the Syrian army on all borders with Turkey and the return of all sources of energy (gas and oil) to the Syrian government-controlled forces.

A US withdrawal from the al-Tanaf border crossing between Iraq and Syria is also expected when a solution is found for the 64,000 refugees at the Rukhba camp.

Syrian govt., not US, must protect Kurds against Turkey: Trump

I have to wonder now whether Putin,Trump,Assad and Erdogan made some kind of deal.

US President Donald Trump says the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and other countries should be responsible for protecting the US-allied Kurds in northern Syria against a Turkish incursion, not the US which is "7,000 miles away" from Syria.

"Let Syria and Assad protect the Kurds and fight Turkey for their own land. I said to my Generals, why should we be fighting for Syria and Assad to protect the land of our enemy?" Trump tweeted on Monday.

"Anyone who wants to assist Syria in protecting the Kurds is good with me, whether it is Russia, China, or Napoleon Bonaparte. I hope they all do great, we are 7,000 miles away!" he went on to say.

US paving way for ‘full-scale arms race’ by staying silent on Russia’s New START proposals – Putin

Putin spoke about the imminent danger of a new unhindered arms race during a joint interview with RT Arabic, UAE-based Sky News Arabia, and Saudi Arabia’s Al-Arabiya broadcasters.

"The New START [Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty] is actually the only agreement that we have to prevent us from falling back into a full-scale arms race. It serves to further reduce and limit strategic offensive arms, that is to limit the entire range of strategic weapons, the entire strategic triad: land-, sea- and air-based combat inter-continental ballistic missile launchers."

...

“This treaty expires in 2021. To make sure it is extended, we need to be working on it right now. We have already submitted our proposals; they are on the table of the US administration. There has been no answer so far,” Putin said, adding that it looks like the US has not decided yet whether it wants to extend the treaty at all.

Rudy Giuliani under investigation by Manhattan feds for his dealings in Ukraine: report

Rudy Giuliani is the subject of a federal probe into whether he broke lobbying laws in his dealings with Ukraine, according to a new report.

Investigators are scrutinizing Giuliani’s efforts to undermine the work of the former US ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, one source familiar with the probe told The New York Times on Friday evening.

The investigation is being conducted by prosecutors in the Southern District of New York — the same district where Giuliani served as US Attorney before becoming mayor of New York in 1994.

Are You Ready to Die? The US Military/ Security Complex Wants Tensions to Increase

The American military/security complex wants the tensions to increase, because this makes the orchestrated “Russian Threat” even larger and leads to a larger budget and more profits and power for the US military/security complex. The military/security complex about which President Eisenhower warned us, to no effect, has been highly successful in dismantling the arms control agreements made between past US and Russian leaders. This has raised the profits of the US military/security complex at the expense of the security of the world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although there are many pieces authored by Engdahl with which I agree mightily, this is not one of them.

Russian President Putin, and the people he has around him, may be many things, but foolish... is not one of them.

I don't think that Vlad and the Gang at the Kremlin, have any doubts about what the US government is attempting to pull here; but we have to take a look at the non-war ways in which Russia is trying to stop this, and here is a beautiful example, today, from zerohedge.com: Russia Considers Energy Exports In Euros, Rubles As Putin's De-Dollarization Continues

And if, ultimately, no one wants what is actually worthless US paper, which has no intrinsic value, as does gold or silver, what happens?!?

We may well see one of two options here; either a complete US economic collapse, or a Third World War, generated by this Last-gasp-of-empire country, the now unhinged, surveilled state of Amerika.

Unfortunately, Russia's military weaponry can run circles around nearly anything the US has produced yet, and they conscript, where the US does not; so how does the US win a war against Russia (and most probably China)
without the money; the troop strength; and the weaponry to make this happen?!?

The short answer is, right now, the US government and military may well not be able to win such a war, and would have to ask for terms of surrender, if there is anything left to surrender from such a war.

Putin Planning "Deal Of The Century" Between Syria & Turkey As US Exits

If he pulls it off,the Nobel Peace Prize and he will deserve it!

Lebanese Arabic news broadcaster Al-Mayadeen is reporting that Russia has begun organizing "reconciliation talks" between Syria and Turkey, in what would be an unprecedented development, given President Erdogan's position has long been that Turkey won't negotiate with Damascus so long as Assad is in power.

The Middle East broadcaster cited Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who said, "Moscow will ask for start of talks between Damascus and Ankara".

Russia's TASS has also confirmed the initiative, making it the first significant attempt to bring the two sides to the table, given Ankara severed diplomatic ties with Damascus in 2012. Turkey could indeed be ready given it has finally gotten its way in Syria — with a long planned attack on Syrian Kurds along the border in northern Syria, which began Wednesday with an air and ground offensive.

Turkey Warns Of War As Syrian Army Heads To Turkish Border

update2: A top Turkish official warns of bigger escalation now that Syrian Army units appear to be heading to besieged Kurdish towns along the border with Turkey.

It's as yet unclear what the Russian military's role in supporting its Syrian ally will be; however, we could be witnessing the beginnings of Putin's 'deal of the century' unfolding, as we explained previously.

Putin is capitalizing on the chaotic retreat of the US & Turkey's brutality toward the Kurds in order to assert Russia's leadership. He contrasts how Russia has stood beside its beleaguered ally, Syria, while the US has abandoned both its allies, the Kurds and the Turks. https://t.co/NjBYZzwKCG

U.S.-allied Kurds strike deal to bring Assad’s Syrian troops back into Kurdish areas

Oct. 13, 2019 at 1:47 p.m. PDT
BEIRUT — Syrian government troops began moving into towns near the Turkish border Sunday night under a deal struck with Syrian Kurds, following a chaotic day that saw the unraveling of the U.S. mission in northeastern Syria.

By the time Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper appeared on Face the Nation to announce that President Trump had ordered the final withdrawal of the 1,000 U.S. troops in northeastern Syria, it was already clear that the U.S. presence had become unsustainable, U.S. officials said.

The announcement by the Syrian Democratic Forces that they had reached an agreement with the Iranian and Russian-backed government of President Bashar al-Assad further undermined the prospect of any continued U.S. presence in the country. The deal brings forces loyal to Assad back into towns and cities that have been under Kurdish control for seven years.

The earliest written references to cannabis are found in the Chinese Materia Medica, written by Shen Nung around 2800 B.C. Nung documented 100 conditions that responded well to cannabis, including gout and rheumatism
For thousands of years, cannabis remained one of the 50 essential plants used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The Vedas, the sacred text of India, also lists cannabis as one of five sacred plants
The ancient Egyptians, Persians and Greeks also used cannabis in a variety of ways, including medicinally and for spiritual upliftment

This is a very special day for me, because the topics I will be covering are all very dear to my heart and to my entire family. Following the Bolshevik revolution my family and another 1.5 million Russians fled their beloved motherland at the end of the civil war. All our so-called European “allies” immediately betrayed us (what else is new?), organized an intervention and backed the russophobic Bolshevik regime (yes, helping both side in turn, like the Empire today in, say, the Kurdish areas of Iraq and Syria). All except one: the Serbs which, at the time, were triumphant (WWI) but also had to rebuild a war ravaged Serbia, with most of its infrastructure destroyed, and coping with the death of nearly 30% of its entire population.

Russia, US veto European statement on Turkey's Syria action

Russian and the United States have used their veto power at the United Nations Security Council to vote down a European statement against Turkey's invasion of northern Syria.

The council held a closed meeting on Thursday to discuss Ankara's military incursion, which began on Wednesday despite widespread warnings by world leaders.

Moscow and Washington had their own reasons to veto the statement by five European members — France, Germany, Belgium, Britain and Poland — who had called the meeting to end the bilateral military action.

In a joint statement after the discussions, the European called on Ankara "to cease the unilateral military action," warning that the offensive threatens progress.

Russian UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said his country would only support UNSC motions that address broader issues, including the presence of foreign forces in Syria.

Return to Russia: Crimeans Tell the Real Story of the 2014 Referendum and Their Lives Since

IMFEROPOL, CRIMEA — In early August I traveled to Russia for the first time, partly out of interest in seeing some of the vast country with a tourist’s eyes, partly to do some journalism in the region. It also transpired that while in Moscow I was able to interview Maria Zakharova, spokeswoman of the Foreign Ministry.

High on my travel list, however, was to visit Crimea and Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) — the former a part of Russia, the latter an autonomous republic in the east of Ukraine, neither accurately depicted in Western reporting. Or at least that was my sense looking at independent journalists’ reports and those in Russian media.

Or at least that was my sense looking at independent journalists’ reports and those in Russian media.

Both regions are native Russian-speaking areas; both opted out of Ukraine in 2014. In the case of Crimea, joining Russia (or actually rejoining, as most I spoke to in Crimea phrased it) was something people overwhelmingly supported. In the case of the Donbass region, the turmoil of Ukraine’s Maidan coup in 2014 set things in motion for the people in the region to declare independence and form the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics.

According to Reuters’ sources, the US plane maker faces the growing possibility that it may have to cut production back by 2022 as the grounding of its popular 737 MAX stretches into its eighth month.

Turkey Joins Russia's Ruble-Based Alternative To SWIFT

After repeated warnings over the past couple of years, Turkey and Russia have signed a pact to increase use of the ruble and lira in cross-border payments, with Turkey signing on to Russia's alternative to SWIFT, the international telecommunications protocol used by banks and central banks the world over.

Though SWIFT is an international cooperative owned by its members, with more than 10,000 banks worldwide relying on its system for handling sizable inter-bank transactions, the safety of the network was brought into question after a series of cyberattacks in 2015 and 2016 resulted in the theft of $101 million from the Central Bank of Bangladesh.

For the first time since SWIFT's laucnh, the hacks stoked doubts about the system's safety, and prompted many US rivals, including Russia, to ramp up work on their alternatives to SWIFT.

Syrian Kurds hint at possible talks with Damascus amid US troops withdrawal

This is the only choice Syrian Kurds have. A rapprochement with Syria. With the Kurds back in the Syrian fold US troop deployment will be untenable. Neither the Iranians,Syrians or Russians are screaming bloody murder against the Turkish invasion of NE Syria as of yet. I see Putin's genius behind this. And remember the Bridge.
https://tass.com/defense/967468

A top Kurdish official says the Kurdish forces controlling northern Syria may open talks with Damascus and Russia, after the United States announced it was withdrawing troops from the area in the wake of Ankara’s looming military operation against Kurdish militants from the People's Protection Units (YPG).

“If America vacates the area and especially the border area for certain we, as a self administration and as the SDF, will be forced to study all the available options,” Badran Jia Kurd told Reuters news agency on Tuesday.

Trump and Ukraine: What We Know

If you’ve followed the Ukraine phone-call news, you might have noticed reality branching into two completely different movies. In one, President Trump was doing his job of protecting the republic by asking an allied country to help out on an important legal investigation. The other movie involves Orange Hitler bullying a foreign country into meddling in our elections by “digging up dirt” on a political opponent.

Which movie is the real one, if such a thing exists? I’d like to offer a rule of thumb for evaluating political news: If a fact is reported the same by both the left-leaning and the right-leaning press, it’s probably a fact. If not, wait and see.

Syria - Trump Gives A Green Light For Another Turkish Invasion

Erdogan wants to take a 30 kilometer deep strip including the M4 highway which runs west to east in that area.

But the border area Erdogan marked is quite populated with some 850,000 people living there. Most of them are Kurds.

There is only one solution for them. They will have to call up the Syrian government and ask it to come back into the north east. That would remove the Turkish concerns and would likely prevent further Turkish moves.

A map of the likely final routes of the land and sea trade corridors which China is working to build in cooperation with local nations along the route goes a long way in explaining why the United States is conducting troop exercises, engaging in military conflicts and threatening new military conflicts in key spots along the New Silk Road.

The following map shows the routes of China’s New Silk Road. Each number corresponds to an area where US troops or their allies are either active in a conflict zone or have recently engaged in military exercises.

Damascus main forces are gearing up for a mass crossing of the Euphrates

DEIR EZ-ZOR /Syria/, September 26. /TASS/. Russian road service military experts have erected a bridge across the Euphrates River, a few kilometers away from Deir ez-Zor in northeastern Syria. It will be used to deploy military equipment and troops to the eastern river bank.

The bridge is 210 meters long. It can serve 8,000 cars a day. The bridge supports heavy armored vehicles, such as tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and multiple-launch rocket systems, Burovtsev said. The bridge will also be used for aid convoys to liberated communities and medical evacuations.

US gives green light to Turkey to launch military operation in north Syria

This is very big! With the Turks coming in from the Northeast,US troops being pulled out, the Russian built bridge across the Euphrates being able to handle 8,000 vehicles a day and Russia telling the US to get it's troops out of Syria this war may be over soon. We shall see!
Meanwhile the neocon traitors in the district of criminals and the wicked witch of Arkansas screaming blood murder that Trump is betraying our allies. The shit is hitting the fan politically! Big! Big! News day!

The United States has given the green light to Turkey to launch a military operation against Washington's long-time Kurdish allies in northern Syria.

The decision came after a phone conversation between US President Donald Trump and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday.

“Turkey will soon be moving forward with its long-planned operation into northern Syria,” the White House said in a statement.

The United States Armed Forces will not support or be involved in that operation, and the United States forces, having defeated the ISIS territorial ‘Caliphate,’ will no longer be in the immediate area.”

The statement does not make it clear if U.S. troops will fully withdraw from Syria or if they will just relocate. The statement also says, “Turkey will now be responsible for all ISIS fighters in the area captured over the past two years.”

Syrian war update: Russia builds bridge across the Euphrates

ALEXANDER MERCOURIS
Editor-in-Chief at The Duran.

The US proxy war against Russia in Syria is not being fought so much as it is being lost
In the complex three cornered fight for Deir Ezzor province in eastern Syria between the Russian backed Syrian army, the US backed Kurdish militia, and ISIS, the Russians and the Syrians have just taken a dramatic step to gain for themselves strategic dominance over the other two.

This takes the form of a bridge built apparently built under fire from ISIS in just two days by Russian engineers across the Euphrates river near the city of Deir Ezzor, which will make possible the sending of armoured units of the Syrian army across the Euphrates river to bring the fight against ISIS and conceivably the Kurdish militia to the territories they occupy on the river’s east bank.

From one of my top intel sources: a Russian S-500 missile battery is installed in one of the warships off the coast of Syria. The Russians obviously will not be forced into using it - as no one is going to attack a Russian warship. It is there with a specific purpose – and that, only the Defense Ministry knows.

Yes, you read it right: S-500. Which has already been tested. And the S-600 has already been designed.

How An Ever Sanctioning Superpower Is Losing Its Status

The U.S. loves to dish out sanctions left and right and the Trump administration has increased their use. But sanctions, especially unilateral ones, do not work. The U.S. has not recognized that because it never looked if those sanctions fulfill their aims. A recent Government Accountability Office report found:

Th U.S. sanctions and sanctions and sanctions but never checked if sanctions work to the intended purpose. The efforts to sanction Russia have surely led to some unintended consequences. They are the reason why the alliance between China and Russia deepens every day. The U.S. has the exorbitant privilege of having its own currency being used as the international reserve. The sanctioning of U.S. dollar transactions is the reason why the U.S. is now losing it:

Biden and Burisma Gas Company May be Linked to Around 15 Cases - Ukraine's Prosecutor General

Back in 2016, former Vice President Joe Biden publicly admitted to having threatened Ukrainian authorities with pulling $1 billion in US loan guarantees if Kiev did not fire the prosecutor in charge of the case against his son.

The Ukrainian Prosecutor General stated Friday that Hunter Biden and Burisma energy exploration and production company may be linked to around 15 criminal cases.

"Judging by what we see, there are around 15 [cases] to which Burisma, or Biden, or Zlochevsky, or Kurchenko may be linked. But I cannot say that these are all the proceedings that we see or that we currently understand. Work on audit or proceedings revision continues," Ukrainian Prosecutor General Ruslan Ryaboshapka said at a briefing, as aired by Nash broadcaster.

Russia Rolls Out Missile Early Warning Systems in Arctic

MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Two new Voronezh-type missile early warning radars will become operational in 2022 in the Komi Republic and the Murmansk region in northern Russia, the Defence Ministry said.

"Work continues on the construction of new radar stations for the missile early warning network in the Komi Republic and the Murmansk region. These works are planned to be completed in 2022," the ministry said.

These new radars will be the first deployed in Russia's Far North.

Russia has deployed so far a total of seven operational Voronezh-type radars as part of the country's missile early warning network. The systems of this type are currently functioning in several Russian regions, including the Kaliningrad region, the Leningrad region and in Syberia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Russians must feel as though they have something very worthy of defending, if they are placing these early warning radars in this area.

Russia’s largest oil company ditches dollar in new oil deals

Russia’s largest oil company Rosneft has set the euro as the default currency for all new exports of crude oil and refined products.

As of September, Rosneft is seeking euros as the default option of payment for its crude oil and products, Reuters reported on Thursday, quoting tender documents the Russian firm has published.

“Rosneft has recently adjusted all the new contracts for export supplies to euros,” a trader at a company that regularly procures oil from Rosneft told Reuters, adding that buyers have already been notified of the change.

Russia's Largest Oil Company Ditches Dollar In New Oil Deals

Authored by Tsvetana Paraskova via OilPrice.com,

Russia’s largest oil company Rosneft has set the euro as the default currency for all new exports of crude oil and refined products, as the state-controlled giant looks to switch as many sales as possible from U.S. dollars to euros in order to avoid further U.S. sanctions against it.

As of September, Rosneft is seeking euros as the default option of payment for its crude oil and products, Reuters reported on Thursday, quoting tender documents the Russian firm has published.

“Rosneft has recently adjusted all the new contracts for export supplies to euros,” a trader at a company that regularly procures oil from Rosneft told Reuters, adding that buyers have already been notified of the change.

Rosneft is the biggest oil exporter from Russia, selling around 2.4 million barrels per day (bpd) of oil, according to Reuters estimates.

Trump White House dares Pelosi to hold impeachment inquiry vote: report

The White House reportedly plans to send Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) a letter as early as Friday saying President Trump doesn’t need to comply with Democratic lawmakers until the full House chamber formally approves an impeachment inquiry against him, Axios reported.

By sending Pelosi the letter, Trump and the White House are aiming to force House Democrats in toss-up districts to take a formal stance on impeachment, Axios noted, adding that Republican sources say that even as the chamber’s minority party, GOP lawmakers can have a greater say in impeachment hearings and other parts of an inquiry once the full chamber formally approves it.

The letter to Pelosi and the chairmen of the six House committees participating in the inquiry was drafted as of Thursday night but had not been finalized or signed, according to Axios.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

2020 is probably going to be one of the ugliest Presidential campaign years I can remember for a very long time; I turned 70 this last year, so that is a lot of Presidential campaigns.

You have a sitting Republican President, Donald Trump, generally matched against former Vice President Democrat Biden both of whom love to "run their mouths", sometimes, does a real disservice to the causes they allege to espouse.

To date, nothing can be found tying President Trump to any impeachable acts; but Biden HAD to shoot his mouth off at a CFR meeting last year, about how he was able to turn the Ukrainian Investigatory "heat" off of his son, Hunter.

Bragging about this in public, was perhaps, not the smartest thing Bident could have been doing, but, oh well... Biden is hardly admired for his intellectual capabilities.
FLASHBACK, 2018: Joe Biden Brags At CFR Meeting About Withholding Aid To Ukraine To Force Firing Of Prosecutor

Please be aware that Joe Biden did this as a sitting Vice President; this kind of international "arm twisting" is one big, fat, hairy "no no" for a sitting Vice President to do, so yes, there should be some reasonable, bi-partisan investigation which needs to be done here.

That President Trump had a call with current Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky (as a mutual pact with Ukraine made this both necessary, and critically important), is not an impeachable offense; the Democrats are trying desperately to turn it into something it is, and was not, illegal, on the part of a sitting President.

But Democrats are insisting that the bringing up of this issue now, is an attempt to destroy Biden's potential bid for the Presidency in 2020, and therefore counts as an impeachable offense.

An impeachable offense must follow the rules and definitions of National law as they pertain to such a charge; and thus far, the best I can see of it, the accusations raised against President Trump, do not meet the legal definition of a crime.

So I would like to strongly caution my Democratic brothers and sisters, that if you think you can win in 2020 by playing this horrifically losing hand,, and perhaps get Trump out of office before the end of his first term, you are most probably very sadly mistaken.

What you will do, if you continue to persist with this ploy, is insure that Trump's base will come out in force for his re-election, and the states you gained in the mid-terms, will again swing back to Republican Congressional control.

Russian military holds large-scale naval drills off Syrian coast

Pompous Pompeo is pontificating about Syria using gas again so Russia is practicing air defense, anti-submarine warfare and sea rescue. Interesting!

“The ship’s crew held air defense and anti-submarine warfare exercises, and also practiced the ship’s protection and defense during a sea transit,” the press office said.

Exclusive: The FBI is running Facebook ads targeting Russians in Washington

The FBI is running ads on Facebook in the Washington DC area seemingly designed to target and recruit Russian spies as well as those who know about their work, CNN has learned.

One ad seen by CNN features a stock photo of a young woman at her graduation with her family. Russian text overlaid on the image reads, "For your future, for the future of your family."

Another shows a picture of a chess set, with Russian text that translates to, "Isn't it time for you to make your move?"
