“On Saturday, Lavrov urged Washington and Pyongyang to reduce tensions and described the trading of insults between their leaders as a ‘kindergarten fight between children.’

In addition to threats posed by Washington on the peninsular Asian country, stringent sanctions drafted by the US, including bans on textile imports and capping crude and petrol supply, were also passed at the UN Security Council without opposition earlier this month to further pressure the North to abandon its nuclear and missile programs.

However, it seems that the sanctions have had little effect, if any, on Pyongyang’s will to complete its nuclear plans. Kim has already said that his country seeks to reach ‘equilibrium’ of military force with the US.

On September 17, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley acknowledged that the Security Council had run out of options on containing Pyongyang’s nuclear program, warning that the White House may have to turn the matter over to the Pentagon.

Russia and China have already warned that no military solution is available for resolving the escalating crisis in the Korean Peninsula, saying the current standoff will only be resolved through dialogue.

North Korea is under mounting international pressure over its missile and military nuclear programs and has been subjected to an array of sanctions by the United Nations. However, Pyongyang says it needs to continue and develop the programs as a deterrent against hostility by the US and its regional allies, including South Korea and Japan.”

“On March 7th, 2014 at 10:30 p.m., a security camera at a secret Russian military base in Moscow captured this video of a strange, transparent being descending from the sky. The creature lands on the fence and sits there for about half a minute before it gently floats down to the ground inside the base where it suddenly disappears. Seconds later, a second being, globular and white, appears and quickly ascends. It’s unclear if anything else unusual was captured afterwards.

Many have expressed skepticism. The most popular theory seems to suggest the ‘invisible’ creature was merely a spider dangling in front of the camera. As for the second being, it’s also believed it was a bug of some kind. While that’s certainly a possibility, one could argue that the first creature’s seemingly transparent state could be a sign that it was something supernatural/alien.

Personally, I have to agree that these two figures were most likely bugs. The more I watched the video, the more I saw how the ‘invisible’ creature did indeed look like a spider. That’s just my opinion however, and I’m interested to hear yours. Were these beings simply bugs near the camera lens? Or could these have been actual extraterrestrial creatures?”

“Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov has strongly condemned the United States for shooting down a Syrian Air Force fighter jet in Syria's militant-held northern province of Raqqah as a ‘massive violation of international law and de facto military aggression.’

‘This strike has to be seen as a continuation of America's line to disregard the norms of international law,’ Ryabkov told the state-owned TASS news agency in Moscow on Monday.

He added, ‘What is this if not an act of aggression? It is, if you like, help to those terrorists that the US is ostensibly fighting against, declaring they are carrying out an anti-terrorism policy.’

Ryabkov’s remarks came a day after the Syrian army said that the US-led coalition purportedly fighting the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group had targeted one of its Sukhoi Su-22 warplanes over al-Rasafa area in the southern countryside of Raqqah Province.

The Syrian General Command of the Army and Armed Forces announced in a statement that the military aircraft was on a combat mission against Daesh terrorists, noting that the pilot of the jet had gone missing after the ‘flagrant aggression.’”

US continues to ‘stab Russia in the back’ with Syrian offensives — RT Op-Edge

RT: The US has said that in the wake of the incident [the shooting down of the Syrian plane] they will be relocating their air force in Syria. Where might they relocate to?

RS [Rick Sterling, Syria Solidarity Movement member] : I am not sure. What we know is that the US is saying one thing but we have to take their words with a big grain of salt because they often do something totally different. The US will say that they respect Syrian sovereignty, but their actions are completely contrary to that right now. So, what we’ve got going on is a clear violation of international law, it is illegal to fund a proxy army attacking a sovereign state, it is illegal to fly over a state without authorization, and it is an obvious act of war and aggression to go into another country and shoot the army and shoot down the air force of the sovereign state…

The Russians have been saying all along that they want to work with their partners, the US, and Donald Trump ran on a campaign of working with Russia to defeat ISIS, but we keep having these stabs in the back. Last September we had an agreement, and the US forces ‘accidentally’ attacked Syrian forces near Deir ez-Zor instead of ISIS and that allowed ISIS to overrun that Syrian Army camp.”

“ロシア直接投資基金のドミトリエフ総裁は、プーチン大統領の同意により、中国とロシアの人民元共同投資基金が設置されるだろうとしました。この提案は、まだ計画の段階ですが、プーチン大統領の同意は中国にとって重要です。これ以前にも、中国とロシアの中央銀行が、両国の貿易を、ドルを利用せずに人民元とルーブルで取り引きすることで合意していました。

IMF国際通貨基金が、人民元を特別引出権バスケットに採用した後、中国政府は、人民元を国際貿易における主要通貨として定着させるための努力を開始しました。そのため、ロシアだけでなく、イラン、トルコ、マレーシアといった国々とも、自国の通貨による取り引きを行うことで合意しています。こうした中、今回の共同投資基金の設置は、他国への経済的な影響力を拡大するための中国の大きな歩みと見なされます。この共同投資基金の設置は、アジアインフラ投資銀行の設置とともに、自国通貨による収入と経済成長を定着させようとするための中国政府の計画となっています。実際、中国は、国際市場への中国のアクセスを妨害しようとする西側の動きが、自国の経済に及ぼすマイナスの影響を退けようとしています。現代版シルクロード経済圏構想も、このような目的で、中国政府によって計画、実行されています。

明らかに、中国政府は、人民元の通貨価値がドルの影響を受けやすいことや、国際市場におけるドルの影響力をよく知っています。そのため、アメリカから制裁を受けているロシアといった国との貿易協力により、人民元によってそれらの国の財政を助け、将来的に、人民元を国際市場の主要通貨にしようとしています。ドミトリエフ総裁は、これまでに、中国の人民銀行はロシア経済に対して、借款の形で700億ドルの支援を行ったが、これは西側の圧力や制裁を考えると、ロシアにとって非常に重要なものだと語っています。このような中で、ロシアと中国は共同銀行の設置も計画しており、両国の通貨取り引きの円滑化を図ろうとしています”

  • Russia 'Won't Allow Food Blackmail of Venezuela by Large Imperialist States' (Sputnik International, Jun. 5 2017)

    “Deliveries of Russian wheat are playing a decisive role in tackling the food crisis, [Venezuelan Minister for External Commerce and International Trade] Jesus Faria said.

    The two countries have been working on the development of the program to deliver Russian wheat to Venezuela. Wheat remains the key component of everyday food rations for Venezuelans, the Minister noted.

    Jesus Faria has thanked Russia for the aid it provides to his home country in various spheres.

    ‘It is very important aid and a very decent and constructive position of the Russian government to stimulate dialogue, peaceful coexistence and the respect of democracy in our country,’ he told Sputnik.

    Russian aid, he said, is a very important contribution as it allows for the creation of certain conditions, background and climate for a constructive dialogue. The Venezuelan government highly appreciates all the projects which Russia is taking part in.”

  • Russia Helps Venezuela Fight Opposition's 'Economic War' (teleSUR English, Jun. 5 2017)

    “Russia has been providing Venezuela with wheat deliveries as part of a development program signed in May. Under the agreement, Russia agreed to send Venezuela 60,000 tons of wheat per month.

    According to Faria, these wheat deliveries have provided a crucial lifeline, ensuring that the Venezuelan people have access to basic food staples.

    Much of the country's food problem has been blamed on contraband selling with over 750 opposition-controlled offshore companies accused of purposely redirecting Venezuelan imports of raw food materials from the government to the private sector.

    In Venezuela, the food crisis is being exploited by the country's right-wing forces, which are attempting to destabilize the leftist government with the support of the U.S., Faria said, according to Sputnik.

    However, the minister added that Russia is helping to fight the food blackmail of Venezuela, Sputnik reported.”

CIA is world’s most dangerously incompetent spy agency – Assange — RT News

“The scathing response came after RT asked the CIA to comment on the assessment of former agency analyst Ray McGovern. He suggested that the capability to falsify digital fingerprints, exposed by WikiLeaks as part of its ongoing Vault 7 disclosure, cast doubt on allegations against Russia in connection with the 2016 US presidential election.

‘Could it be that the “Russian hack” was really done by John Brennan of the CIA? If I were asked to bet on that, then I would bet that that was exactly the case,’ McGovern told RT’s Going Underground program.

‘What does that mean? It means that these trumped-up charges against Trump, pardon the pun, are baseless,’ McGovern added.”

“CIA spokesperson [Heather Fritz] Horniak also lashed out at RT for questioning the allegations of Russia’s interference in the US election.

‘The responsibility of the Russian intelligence services for the election-related hacking is an established fact, but it is not surprising that an identified propaganda outlet like RT would attempt to muddle those facts. No reputable news organization doubts Russian culpability,’ Horniak claimed.

In response, RT’s editor-in-chief, Margarita Simonyan, said that such unquestioning obedience by the western mainstream media to the US establishment only leads to a decline in their popularity.

‘The CIA & Co haven't bothered to present a shred of evidence besides their own claims, and are now actually boasting about how happy the ever-loyal press is to unquestioningly go along with the story,’ Simonyan said, adding, ‘This is exactly why people have stopped trusting the mainstream media and are seeking out alternative sources of news and analysis.’
