Conference of Russian [New Russian Empire] ambassadors and permanent representatives 


July 1, 2014, 15:45 Moscow 








Vladimir Putin took part in a conference of Russian Federation ambassadors and permanent representatives on protecting Russia’s national interests and strengthening the foundations and principles of international relations.

Also taking part in the conference were the heads of the Government, both chambers of the Federal Assembly, ministries and agencies involved in international activities, and representatives of the national expert and business communities.

President awarded orders to eight Foreign Ministry employees and the honorary title of Honoured Worker of the Diplomatic Service of the Russian Federation to two. 


* * * 


Beginning of conference of Russian Federation ambassadors and permanent representatives 





Meetings with the diplomatic corps have become a tradition.  We need this direct conversation to make an overall assessment of the situation in the world, to set current and long-term foreign policy objectives and on that basis to more effectively coordinate the work of our missions abroad. 



I would like to begin by saying that the Foreign Ministry and our embassies are under a lot of pressure; we see this, we are aware of this, but this pressure will *not* be reduced.  It will only increase, just as the requirement to show efficiency, precision and flexibility in our actions to ensure Russia’s national interests.



You know how dynamic and unpredictable international developments may sometimes be. They seem to be pressed together and unfortunately are not all of a positive nature.  *The potential for conflict is growing* in the world, old contradictions are growing ever more acute and new ones are being provoked.  We come across such developments, often unexpectedly, and we observe with regret that *international law is not working, the most basic norms of decency are not complied with and the principle of all-permissiveness is gaining the upper hand*. 



We are observing this in Ukraine as well. We need to understand clearly that the events provoked in Ukraine are *the concentrated outcome of the notorious deterrence policy*.  As you may know, its roots go deep into history and it is clear that unfortunately, this policy did *not* end with the end of the Cold War. 



In Ukraine, as you may have seen, at threat were our compatriots, Russian people and people of other nationalities, their language, history, culture and legal rights, guaranteed, by the way, by European conventions.  When I speak of Russians and Russian-speaking citizens I am referring to those people who consider themselves part of the broad Russian community, they may not necessarily be ethnic Russians, but they consider themselves Russian people. 



What did our partners expect from us as the developments in Ukraine unfolded?  We clearly had no right to abandon the residents of Crimea and Sevastopol to the mercy of nationalist and radical militants; we could not allow our access to the Black Sea to be significantly limited; we could not allow NATO forces to eventually come to the land of Crimea and Sevastopol, the land of Russian military glory, and cardinally change the balance of forces in the Black Sea area. This would mean giving up practically everything that Russia had fought for since the times of Peter the Great, or maybe even earlier – historians should know. 



I would like to make it clear to all: this country will continue to actively defend the rights of Russians, our compatriots abroad, using the entire range of available means – from political and economic to operations under international humanitarian law and the right of self-defence. 



I would like to stress that what happened in Ukraine was *the climax of the negative tendencies in international affairs* that had been building up for years.   We have long been warning about this, and unfortunately, our predictions came true. 



You know about the latest efforts to restore, to maintain peace in Ukraine. Foreign Ministry staff and the Minister himself took an active part in this.  You know about the numerous telephone conversations we had on this subject. 



Unfortunately, President Poroshenko has resolved to resume military action, and we failed –-when I say ‘we’, I mean my colleagues in Europe and myself-– we failed to convince him that the road to a secure, stable and inviolable peace cannot lie through war. 



So far Mr Poroshenko was not directly linked to the orders to begin military action, and only now did he take full responsibility, and not only military, but political as well, which is much more important. 



We also failed to agree to make public the statement approved by the foreign ministers of Germany, France, Russia and Ukraine on the need to maintain peace and search for mutually acceptable solutions. 



I would like to draw your attention to the fact that after the ceasefire was declared, *no* substantive, as you say, negotiations on the settlement of the situation ever began.  Virtually, a disarmament ultimatum was given. However, even the ceasefire was not bad overall, though not enough to settle the situation on a long-term basis in a way that would be acceptable to all the people living in the country, including those in its southeast. 



A constitution was made public, but it was never discussed.   Even within Ukrainian society there is a discussion of whether it is good or bad, but nobody definitely ever discussed it with the east. 



Of course, everything that is going on in Ukraine is the internal affair of the Ukrainian state.  It pains us to see people dying, especially civilians.  As you may know, the number of refugees in the Russian Federation is growing.  We will of course provide assistance to all those who need it.  However, *killing journalists is unacceptable*.  I reminded the Ukrainian President of this yesterday yet again. 



In my view, we are observing *a focused effort to liquidate all media representatives*.  This applies to both Russian and foreign journalists.  Who could be afraid of fair reporting?  Probably those, who are committing crimes.  We strongly hope that the Ukrainian authorities act on their promises to carefully investigate the crimes. 



More new hotspots are appearing on the world map.  There is a deficit of security in Europe, in the Middle East, South-East Asia, in the Asia-Pacific region and in Africa.  The global economic, financial and trade systems are becoming unbalanced, and *moral and spiritual values are being washed out*. 



There is hardly any doubt that *the unipolar world order did not come to be*.  Peoples and countries are raising their voices in favour of self-determination and civilizational and cultural identity, which conflicts with the attempts by certain countries [The World Tyrant / NATO] to maintain their *domination* in the military sphere, in politics, finance, the economy and in ideology. 



I know this has no direct bearing on us, however what is being done to the French banks can cause nothing but indignation in Europe in general and here as well. We are aware of the pressure our American [World Tyrant] partners are putting on France to force it not to supply Mistrals [planes]to Russia.  We even know that they hinted that if France does not deliver the Mistrals, the sanctions will be quietly lifted from their banks, or at least they will be significantly minimised.



What is this if not blackmail?  Is this the right way to act on the international arena?  Besides, when we speak of sanctions, we always assume that sanctions are applied pursuant to Article 7 of the UN Charter.  Otherwise, these are *not* sanctions in the true legal sense of the word, but something different, some other unilateral policy instrument. 



In the past 20 years, our partners have been trying to convince Russia of their good intentions, their readiness to jointly develop strategic cooperation.  However, at the same time they kept expanding NATO, extending the area under their military and political control ever closer to our borders.  And when we rightfully asked: “Don’t you find it possible and necessary to discuss this with us?” they said: “No, this is none of your business.”  *Those who continue insisting on their exclusivity strongly dislike Russia’s independent policy*.  The events in Ukraine prove this.  They also prove that a model of relations full of double standards does not work with Russia. 



Nevertheless, I hope pragmatism will eventually prevail.  We need to get rid of ambitions, of attempts to establish a *‘world barracks’* and arrange everybody by rank, or to impose *single* rules of behaviour and life, and to finally begin building relations based on *equality, mutual respect and concern for mutual interests*.  It is time we admit each other’s right to be different, *the right of every country to live its own life rather than to be told what to do by someone else*. 



Colleagues, in its foreign policy Russia has been consistently proceeding from the notion that solutions to global and regional conflicts should be sought not through confrontation, but through cooperation and compromise.  We advocate the supremacy of international law while supporting the UN’s leading role. 



International law should be mandatory for all and should not be applied selectively to serve the interests of individual select countries or groups of states, and most importantly, it should be interpreted consistently. It is impossible to interpret it in one way today, and in a different way tomorrow to match the political goals of the day. 



World development cannot be unified. However, we can look for common issues, see each other as partners rather than competitors, and establish cooperation between states, their associations and integration structures. 



These are the principles we were guided by in the past, and they continue to guide us now as we promote integration within the CIS.  Strengthening close friendly ties and developing mutually advantageous economic cooperation with our neighbours is *the key strategic priority* of Russia’s long-term foreign policy. 



The driving force behind Eurasian integration is the trio of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan.  The Agreement on the Eurasian Economic Union, signed in Astana on May 29, symbolises a *qualitatively* new step in our relations.  A powerful centre of economic development that attracts business and investors, a common market is being formed in Eurasia.  That is why our CIS partners show a strong interest in this union.  I hope that very soon, Armenia will become a full-fledged member of this union.  Negotiations with Kyrgyzstan are at an advanced stage.  We are open to other Commonwealth states as well. 



As we promote the Eurasian integration project, we are in no way trying to separate ourselves from the rest of the world; we are ready to consider prospects for creating free trade zones both with individual states and with regional associations and unions, *primarily* the European Union, of course. 



*Europe is our natural and most significant trade and economic partner*.  We strive to find new opportunities to expand our business cooperation, to open up new prospects for mutual investment and to lift trade barriers.  This requires an upgrade of the legal contractual base of our cooperation and the stability and predictability of ties, primarily in such strategically important areas as energy.   *Stability on the entire territory of Eurasia and sustainable development of the EU economies and Russia* depend on well-coordinated cooperation based on consideration for mutual interests. 



We have always held high our reputation of a reliable supplier of energy resources and invested in the development of gas infrastructure.  Together with European companies, as you may know, we have built a new gas transportation system called Nord Stream under the Baltic Sea.  Despite certain difficulties, we will promote the South Stream project, *especially since ever more European politicians and businessmen are coming to understand that someone [The World Tyrant] simply wants to use Europe in their own interests, that it is becoming a hostage of someone’s near-sighted ideologised approaches*. 



If we return to Ukraine, the violation by Ukraine of its commitments regarding the purchase of our natural gas has become a common problem.  Kiev refuses to pay on its debt.  This is absolutely unacceptable.  They have not paid for November-December of last year, though there were no arguments whatsoever then. 



Our partners are using blatant blackmail –-this is what it is.  They demand an ungrounded reduction of prices on our goods, though the agreement was signed in 2009, and the parties complied with it in good faith.  Now, as you may know, the court in Kiev has lifted all accusations against Ukraine’s former Prime Minister Tymoshenko, who signed the contract.  Thus, the Kiev court authorities admit that they have done everything right not only by international law, but by Ukrainian law as well.  But they do *not* wish to comply, or to pay for the product already received. 



As of June 16, as you may know, we have transferred Ukraine to a pre-payment system, so they will get exactly the amount of gas they pay for.  Today they do not pay; therefore, they are not getting anything –-only in the so-called reverse mode.  We know all about this reverse mode: it is a fake; *there is no reverse mode*.  How can you supply gas two ways along the same pipeline?  One does not have to be a gas transportation expert to understand that this is impossible.  They are playing tricks with some of their partners: in fact, they are getting our gas and paying some western partners in Europe who are not receiving their volume. We are quire aware of this. 



We are not taking any action at this point only because we do not want the situation to deteriorate.  However, everyone should draw the proper conclusions from the situation.  The *main* thing is that honest gas consumers and suppliers should not suffer from the actions of Ukrainian politicians and bureaucrats. 



Generally, all of us – Ukraine, our European partners, and we – should seriously consider how to reduce the probability of any type of political or economic risks or force majeure situations on the continent. 



In this connection, I would like to remind you that in August 2015 we will be marking 40 years of the Final Act of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe. This anniversary is a good reason not only to turn to *the basic principles of cooperation on the continent* that were laid back in 1975, but also to *jointly make them work*, to help them take root in practical European politics. 



We have to work consistently *to rule out any unconstitutional coups in Europe*, any interference in the internal affairs of sovereign states, the use of blackmail or threats in international relations or the *support* of radical and neo-Nazi forces. 



All of us in Europe need a sort of safety net to make sure that Iraqi, Libyan or Syrian –-and unfortunately, I have to say also Ukrainian-– precedents do not become contagious.  This is *especially dangerous for the post-Soviet area*, because the states have yet not gained political or economic strength, they do not have a stable political system.  It is very important that the constitutions of these states be treated with great care and respect. 



Why is this important –-and not only on the post-Soviet area, but *all over*  Europe? Because *even in those countries of Western and Eastern Europe where things seem to be going fine*, there are quite a few hidden ethnic and social contradictions that may become acute any moment, may serve as ground for conflicts and extremism, and may be used by external forces [The World Tyrant / NATO] to rock the social and political situation to achieve an illegitimate undemocratic change of power with all the negative consequences. 



Firm guarantees of indivisible security, stability, respect for sovereignty and non-interference in each other’s internal affairs should become *the basis* that we can use to build a common space for economic and humanitarian cooperation that would spread from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean –-I already spoke of this as a single space from Lisbon to Vladivostok. 



I would like to ask the Foreign Ministry to draft a set of proposals in this respect, with *special focus on the inadmissibility of any attempts to influence internal political processes from the outside*.  *The job is to work the traditional principle of non-interference into the modern European realities and initiate a serious international discussion on the subject*. 



We also need to continue strengthening the eastern vector of our diplomacy, to more intensively use the impressive potential of the Asia-Pacific region in the interests of the further development of our country, primarily, of course, of Siberia and the Far East.  We should continue to direct Russia’s policy in Asia and the Pacific at maintaining the security of our eastern borders and at supporting peace and stability in the region.  The coming leadership of Russia in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, and the SCO and BRICS summits to be held in Ufa in the summer of 2015 work to support this. 



We need to strengthen overall partnership and strategic cooperation with the People’s Republic of China. We can say that a strong Russian-Chinese connection has taken shape on the international arena. It is based on *a coincidence of views on both global processes and key regional issues*.  It is of primary importance that Russian-Chinese friendship is not directed against anyone: *we are not creating any military unions*.  On the contrary, this is an example of equal respectful and productive cooperation between states in the 21st century. 



We intend to further develop our relations with our traditional partners in this area of the world: with India and Vietnam, who are playing an ever-greater role in the world; with Japan and other countries, including the ASEAN states.  We intend to further use the potential of the growing markets in Latin America and Africa and the great experience of political and humanitarian relations with the countries there. 



Our contacts with the United States of America [The World Tyrant] are of great importance for the whole world.  We do not intend to shut down our relations with the USA [The World Tyrant].  True, bilateral relations are not in their best shape, but –-I would like to stress this-– not through Russia’s fault.  We have always tried to be predictable partners and conduct our affairs on the basis of equality.  However, in return, our lawful interests were often ignored. 



Now over to various types of international meetings.  If we are assigned the observer role without a decisive vote on key issues that are of vital importance to us, then such meetings are of little interest to us.  We should not sacrifice our vital interests just for the sake of being able to sit and observe.  I hope our partners will eventually come to understand this obvious fact.  So far, we have been hearing ultimatums or mentoring.  Nevertheless, we are ready for dialogue, but I would like to stress that this should be an equal dialogue. 



Colleagues, the complicated and unpredictable situation in the world places great demands on Russian diplomats’ professional level.  The Foreign Ministry’s staff in Moscow and the Russian embassies abroad worked effectively and in coordinated fashion during the serious situation with Crimea and Ukraine, and I want to thank you for this.  I particularly note the work done by the heads and staff of Russia’s representative missions at the UN and other key international organisations. 



We must continue working with just such energy and dignity, in a *spirit of tact, restraint and sense of measure* of course.  Our position must be based on clear and unshakeable principles of international law and legal and historical justification, on truth, justice, and *the strength of moral superiority*. 



For my part, I can say that our country’s leadership will continue to do everything necessary to give you good conditions for your professional activity. As you know, I have signed presidential executive orders raising the wages of Foreign Ministry staff.  Wages of people working at the central office will increase 1.4-fold on average. 



Pensions for diplomatic personnel taking their retirement after January 1, 2014, will increase 3.5-fold on average.  Pay for the heads of foreign diplomatic missions will increase four-fold on average in ruble equivalent.  Pension top-ups for ambassadors and permanent envoys going into retirement have also increased considerably. 



Wages in rubles for personnel at diplomatic missions abroad will be increased a bit later, from January 1, 2016, but this will be a four-fold increase.  I hope that these steps will help to boost the Foreign Ministry’s human resources potential and thus make us more effective in carrying out our foreign policy. 



I also ask the Government to speed up the decision on providing additional guarantees for personnel from other agencies and administrative and technical personnel working at Russian missions abroad, *especially* in situations where there are terrorist threats. 



The Foreign Ministry has raised the question of giving diplomatic service the official legal status as a special type of civil service in Russia.  We will examine this proposal. 



This concludes my opening remarks. 



I thank the members of the media for the attention they have given our work.

Supreme Leader Meets with Families of Martyrs of the 7th of Tir 












Ayatollah Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, met Saturday morning with families of martyrs of the 7th of Tir, families of martyrs of Tehran and disabled war veterans. 



Tir is the fourth month of the Iranian calendar.  Tir has 31 days and begins in June and ends in July. 



Tir is the first month of summer 






Speaking at the meeting, His Eminence stressed the need of society and the country to *understand and follow up* the message of the martyrs. 



Referring to the events in *Iraq*, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution said: “What is happening in Iraq is the war between 


terrorism and 


lovers of the west, 


and the opponents of terrorism and supporters of the independence of nations.” 



Ayatollah Khamenei described the 7th of Tir as the arena of complete disgrace for those who claim to support human rights, adding: “Since then, the perpetrators of that crime and the agents of murdering thousands of Iranians have been enjoying the support of westerners and in the present time, they are being welcomed in the U.S. [World Tyrant] Congress and other governmental organizations of that country.” 



His Eminence reiterated: “While those who claim to support human rights receive with open arms the agents of bloody terror against the people of Iran, the Islamic Republic of Iran —-which is a victim of terrorism and the violation of human rights—- is accused of such crimes and this is a good standard for evaluating western claims.” 



Pointing to the bombardment of the Iranian city of *Sardasht* with chemical weapons —-on the seventh of Tir of 1366 by Saddam’s Ba’athist regime—- he stated: “Despite using chemical weapons against the people of Sardasht and before that the people of Halabja [in Iraq], America [The World Tyrant] and Europe {NATO} supported the Ba’athist regime for many years. 



As long as they could use Saddam, they did not oppose him.  This is another standard for clarifying the truth of western claims.” 


The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution stressed that the enemies’ failures during the past three decades have reinforced their grudge against the people of Iran, saying: “Global arrogant powers —-who hate Imam [Ruhollah Khomeini]. . ., the Revolution and the people of Iran—- do not stop hatching plots.  For this reason, the people and officials should be completely vigilant and careful.” 



Ayatollah Khamenei referred to regional events and said: “Today, *the enemies of Islam have invested in waging domestic wars within nations so that they can pit people against one another* with tribal and denominational excuses.” 



His Eminence added: “They falsely refer to the events in Iraq as the war between Shia and Sunni, but this war is the war of terrorism against the opponents of terrorism. It is the war of the lovers of America’s [The World Tyrant’s] goals against the supporters of independence of nations.  It is the war of human values against brutality and savagery.” 



Pointing to the efforts of the enemies of Islam for repeating the events of Iraq in other countries, he reiterated: “Nations should vigilantly keep the enemy’s activities under surveillance and they should know that *the enemy is not afraid of doing anything* for the sake of destroying the independence and dignity of Muslims.” 



He stressed: “By Allah’s favor, the dear and brave people of Iran have frustrated the enemy until today with unity, vigilance and foresight. 



Without a doubt, from now on too, they will frustrate all the attacks and plots of arrogance and the camp of imperialists will finally be defeated in their battle against Islamic Awakening.”

Command of Southwestern Front of KPA Releases Crucial Report





The Command of the Southwestern Front of the Korean People’s Army (KPA) released the following crucial report on June 26: 



On Thursday the warmongers of the south Korean puppet military committed such a grave military provocation as firing shells at the waters of the DPRK side from the waters around Yonphyong Island without any prior notice. 



This reckless military provocation is an undisguised revelation of their sinister design to ignite a war against the DPRK by deliberately making a clumsy fire on its inviolable territorial waters.  This is fully evidenced by the recent situation prevailing in the hot spot of the West Sea of Korea. 



The intrusion into the territorial waters of the DPRK side being perpetrated by warships of the puppet army under the pretext of intercepting fishing boats is escalating day by day and there continues day and night the mad-cap firing and shelling on Paekryong, Yonphyong, Taechong and other islands. 



In order to cope with the prevailing situation, all the strike groups of the KPA in the southwestern sector of the front rounded off preparations for devastating strike after having a complete retaliatory posture. 



We clearly know that not only the puppet Ministry of Defense but also Chongwadae are behind the reckless clumsy firing perpetrated by the bellicose forces of the south Korean puppet military in the most sensitive waters. 



Park Geun Hye and her group finding themselves in the worst ruling crisis and being driven into a pitfall of destiny are working hard to seek a way out by desperately perpetrating provocations in the hotspot waters and pushing the situation to the brink of a war. 



All the service personnel of the KPA in the southwestern sector of the front are full of the strong will of retaliation to punish the provocateurs to the last one by giving vent to their pent-up grudge. 



What they are waiting for is only the order to be given by the Supreme Command to strike the provocateurs. 



The provocateurs will have to keenly realize what high price they will pay for the consequences to be entailed by their reckless clumsy firing.

Citing “significant and chronic system failures” in the nation’s health system for veterans, a review ordered by President Barack Obama portrays the Department of Veterans Affairs as a struggling agency battling a corrosive culture of distrust, lacking in resources and ill-prepared to deal with an influx of new and older veterans with a range of medical and mental health care needs. 



The scathing report by deputy White House chief of staff Rob Nabors says the Veterans Health Administration, the VA *sub agency* that provides health care to about 8.8 million veterans a year, has systematically ignored warnings about its deficiencies and must be fundamentally restructured.




While the review finds deficiencies *throughout* the VA, it is especially critical of the Veterans Health Administration, which has already undergone some housecleaning. 


Earlier this week, the VA announced that Dr. Robert L. Jesse, who has been acting undersecretary for health and head of the VHA, was resigning.  Jesse has been acting undersecretary for health since May 16, when Robert Petzel resigned under pressure months before he was set to retire.

Kim Jong Un Guides Test-fire of Newly Developed Ultra-precision Tactical Guided Missiles


Jun. 27, Juche 103 (2014) Friday





Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, guided the test-fire of newly developed cutting-edge ultra-precision tactical guided missiles.


At the central monitoring post he acquainted himself with the tactical and technological information of the newly developed guided missiles before giving an order to test-fire them.


The moment the guided missiles soared into the sky with thunderous roar.


The test-fire proved that the tactical guided weapons didn’t have an inch of deviation in their scientific and technological performance.


They are another shining success made by scientists in the field of national defence and workers in the field of munitions industry in their efforts to implement the WPK’s policy of manufacturing high-precision, lighter, automatic and intelligent weapons and equipment.


The test-fire helped the KPA get the master key to putting all strike means including short-, medium- and long-range guided weapons on ultra-precision basis of the world level and opened a bright prospect for maximizing their striking accuracy and power.


The successful test-fire at a time when the U.S. and the south Korean puppet regime and all other allied forces are going extremely reckless in the moves to isolate and stifle the DPRK and unleash a war of aggression marked a significant event in bolstering up the defence capability for self-defense. This greatly encourages the service personnel and people of the DPRK.


Kim Jong Un expressed great satisfaction over the results of the test-fire.


Expressing belief that the officials and workers in the fields of national defence science and munitions industry would manufacture more ultra-precision tactical guided weapons capable of taking the decisive initiative in any operation and battle of the modern warfare through accurate preemptive strikes, always bearing in mind the expectations of the party and the people, he advanced new tasks to be fulfilled by the field of national defence science and technology.


He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Pyon In Son, Pak Jong Chon and Hong Yong Chil.

The Great Recession and the slow recovery have sharply widened the gap between the wealthiest Americans and everyone else, according to a study that underscores the unevenness of wealth gains *since the recession ended*. 



The richest 5 percent had 24 times the wealth of the median household in 2013 —-up substantially from 16.5 times as much in 2007, according to a study by University of Michigan researchers. 


The study paints a bleaker picture of U.S. household wealth than do official figures from the Federal Reserve.

US [World Tyrant] GDP shrinks 2.9% in first quarter 




The US [World Tyrant] economy suffered its worst performance for five years in the first quarter of 2014, latest figures show. 



The economy shrank at an annualised rate of 2.9% in the first three months of the year, the *third* estimate from the US [World Tyrant] Commerce Department showed. 



This was worse than the previous estimate of a 1% contraction, and also worse than economists’ expectations.










Press statements and answers to journalists’ questions following Russian-Austrian talks [Excerpts] 


24 June 2014, 20:00, Vienna 





QUESTION: Rossiya TV. 


A question about South Stream.  The President of Austria just spoke extensively about how this project is very important and necessary for Austria, but we nevertheless all hear the statements made by the American [World Tyrant] side and the statements coming from certain European officials.  In this regard, how viable are the Russian-Austrian agreements on South Stream, in your view? 



VLADIMIR PUTIN: You know, we are holding talks with our contracted partners, not with other nations.  Our American [World Tyrant] friends are unhappy with South Stream; they were unhappy in 1962 as well, when we began the gas-for-pipes project with Germany.  And now they are unhappy with this as well. 



Nothing has changed; the only thing that changed is that they themselves want to supply gas to the European market.  But I assure you, it will not be cheaper than Russian gas.  Pipeline gas is always cheaper than liquefied gas.  Shale gas needs to be extracted, it needs to be turned into liquid, transported across the ocean and then regasified.  This involves a lot of money.  It is certainly more expensive than our pipeline gas. 



But the Americans are competitors nevertheless.  This is a normal situation.  And they are doing everything possible to break up this contract, same as many decades ago.  There is nothing unusual here.  This is typical competition. 



Political means are used in this competition as well. They talk about Europe’s overdependence on Russian gas.  We believe that any of our partners have the right to, they can and they should, perhaps, create the most favourable conditions possible for themselves, maintaining contacts and contracts with many partners. 



We do the same.  Just recently, we signed a contract with the People’s Republic of China.  We will continue to promote our product in developing markets in Southeast Asia and Asia overall.  But this is our natural movement to expand our transport infrastructure. 



Incidentally, answering your Austrian colleague’s question, I can say that this is not about a desire to bypass Ukraine.  These projects were initiated long ago.  And what about Nord Stream –-was that an attempt to bypass Ukraine?  No.  And what about our Blue Stream to Turkey under the Black Sea?  This project exists and is working.  Is that a desire to put someone in a difficult position?  No, these are simply our direct contacts with Turkey. 



There is another gas pipeline through Belarus and Poland.  Is that an attempt to bypass Ukraine?  No, we are simply developing our transport infrastructure.  You cannot always insist that we are doing something against someone.  We are doing this in our own interests –-ours and those of our partners.

The club is an informal group of governments, including the United States [The World Tyrant, Puppet Israel’s master], that collectively negotiate deals with poor countries struggling with huge debts.  It was created in 1956, and has worked out loan deals for 90 countries. 


Once a tiny farming nation, [Puppet] Israel has evolved into a high-tech economy with numerous startups and companies in communications, software and  *military* technology.

[Puppet] Israeli air strikes target Syria after Golan death [Excerpts] 





Two others, including the boy’s [Mohammed Qaraqara’s] father, an Israeli defence [war] contractor, were injured in Sunday’s blast, which struck their vehicle. 


It is unclear whether Syrian rebels [World Tyrant proxies] or government [Syrian Arab Republic] forces were behind the incident. 


In a statement, it [the Syrian Foreign Ministry] said the strikes were a sign of the “direct and continuous support” that [Puppet] Israel is giving to rebels [World Tyrant proxies] fighting against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad[, the Syrian peoples and their state,] and urged the UN to condemn the attacks.

Thousands of [Puppet] Israeli soldiers have been combing the West Bank inch by inch, searching homes, crawling into caves and even pumping wells to try to find three teens who [Puppet] Israel says were abducted by the Islamic militant [group] Hamas. 


But nearly two weeks into [Puppet] Israel’s most extensive military operation [terrorism] in the West Bank in a decade, there’s no sign of the missing. 


With the disappearance unresolved, [Puppet] Israel has been using the searches to try to dismantle Hamas’ operations in the West Bank.  [Puppet] Israel says it has delivered a painful blow to Hamas, arresting 270 Hamas activists and raiding more than 60 businesses and institutions linked to the group. 


But in broadening the goals of the campaign, Israel has invited growing criticism, following the initial condemnation of the abductions by [puppet] Palestinian leaders and the international community [The World Tyrant / NATO].






The Charter identified Hamas as the Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine. . . .”

“What is happening in Iraq is dangerous and threatens the security of the entire region,” [Syrian Arab Republic Information Minister Omran] al-Zoubi said. 



“It threatens the security of the Gulf, of Iran, Turkey and the entire Middle East.  It also touches directly the security of Europe and international security.” 



Al-Zoubi said the international community including the U.S. [The World Tyrant / NATO] has adopted policies that “encouraged” the spread of “terrorism” in the Middle East. 



He added that the world must unite its efforts to eradicate this unfolding threat. 



“Confronting the armed terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq is a national duty.  The Iraqi army is confronting those in Iraq and Syria is confronting those in Syria,” he said.

In a letter to President Barack Obama, Carolyn Lerner of the U.S. [World Tyrant] Office of Special Counsel said Monday that the VA consistently acknowledges problems but says patient care is not affected. 



“This approach has prevented the VA from acknowledging the severity of *systemic* problems and from taking the necessary steps to provide quality care to veterans,” Lerner wrote to Obama.

Already pilloried for long wait times for medical appointments, the beleaguered Department of Veterans Affairs has fallen short of another commitment: to attend to the needs of the rising ranks of female veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, many of them of child-bearing age. 



Even the head of the VA’s office of women’s health acknowledges that persistent shortcomings remain in caring for the 390,000 female vets seen last year at its hospitals and clinics —despite an investment of more than $1.3 billion since 2008, including the training of hundreds of medical professionals in the fundamentals of treating the female body. 



Army Sgt. LaQuisha Gallmon of Greenville, South Carolina, whose daughter was born two months ago, said she had been authorized to see a private physician of her choice for prenatal visits and delivery.  But because the paperwork hadn’t been fully processed when she went to an outside emergency room for complications in her sixth month of pregnancy, VA has refused to pay the $700 bill, she said. 



“I called the VA women’s clinic and they told me everything was approved for me to get outside care and I should be getting the packet in the mail,” said Gallmon, 32, who served six years in Iraq, Germany and Fort Gordon, Georgia. 



“Right after that, I wound up in the ER for complications, and a week later I received the letter saying they wouldn’t pay for it.”
