The Coordinating Council of Organizations of Russian Compatriots in the United States (KSORS) suspended its work due to pressure from the American special services. As noted by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, the council’s activities do not violate the laws of the United States.

“On November 18, the Coordinating Council of Organizations of Russian Compatriots in the United States (KSORS) was forced to suspend its public work due to tough and unprecedented pressure from American intelligence services,” a statement on the website of the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
It is noted that these actions violate the legal rights of the Russian diaspora to preserve their national cultural identity.
Zakharova added that for several years the FBI had threatened the members of the KSORS with criminal prosecution for allegedly failing to comply with the American law on foreign agents.
“The legitimate humanitarian activities of the KSORS, carried out on the principles of openness and cooperation, do not violate American law and are not subject to the said law,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
Earlier, the Russian Embassy in Washington demanded that the United States stop persecuting the Russian diaspora.

The Russian Embassy in the United States demanded an end to the persecution of Russians

Moscow, November 19 – AiF-Moscow.

The Russian Embassy in Washington turned to the American side with a demand to stop the persecution of the Russian diaspora in the United States. This is stated on the Facebook page of the diplomatic service.
On the eve of the Coordinating Council of Organizations of Russian Compatriots in the United States (KSORS) announced the suspension of work in connection with the FBI investigation. About 300 representatives of the Russian diaspora were interrogated.
The embassy assessed the corresponding actions as unfriendly towards Russia. Russian diplomats were outraged by the “hostile actions of the United States” against the Russians under the pretext of suspicion of working in the United States without registering as foreign agents.
“The reason is the unprecedented pressure on the representatives of the Russian-speaking community by the American authorities that has been continuing for a number of years,” follows from the message.
It is noted that the FBI officers sometimes rudely conducted searches and interrogations of representatives of the diaspora, confiscated personal belongings.
“Thus, the US authorities are denying immigrants from Russia the right to maintain contact with their historical homeland, to take an active part in preserving their own cultural and linguistic heritage,” the office stressed.
According to the statement of diplomats, compatriots are trying to strengthen mutual understanding between Russians and Americans, to contribute to the normalization of bilateral ties.
Earlier it was reported that Washington is delaying the extension of visas for almost 60 employees of the Russian Embassy and Consulates General in the United States, and about 40 more employees are awaiting entry permits in Moscow.

Ukraine Defence Minister discusses Russian aggression along border with US counterpart

1 Share
Ukraine’s Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov, during his Pentagon visit, called for global unity to deter “Russian belligerence” and its “new tactics” of escalation against Ukraine. As both Kyiv and Washington agreed about the continuing military and security threat from Moscow, Reznikov, at a Pentagon conference, stressed that Ukraine had been “repelling waves of Russia‘s hybrid aggression for eight years.”
Furthermore, he thanked the US for its strategic partnership with Kyiv. “We appreciate the full efforts of the United States to draw attention to the next phase of military preparations around Ukraine made by Moscow,” he said. The USA resonated the concerns about Russia’s military buildup on the border with Ukraine with US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin urging that Russia be asked for more transparency and pushed to live up to the Minsk agreement, according to transcripts released by Pentagon.

‘Escalation will certainly have catastrophic consequences for Europe’: Reznikov

Acknowledging his Ukrainian counterpart’s concerns, Austin assured that Pentagon officials have been closely monitoring the reports of the Russian troop movements near Ukraine‘s border. The US defence secretary also noted that he has been in contact with General Tod D. Wolters, the head of US European Command, to discuss how to best respond to the continuing threat and regional security situation caused by Moscow.
“We made clear our concerns about Russia’s destabilising activities and our desire for more transparency,” Austin said. Ukraine’s defence minister called out at the unusual Russian military activity on the country’s border, appearing to hint that the troop buildup might be Moscow’s readiness for an attack. “We’re not sure exactly what Mr Putin is up to,” Austin agreed.

“This possible escalation will certainly have catastrophic consequences for the whole of Europe,” Reznikov said, as per the Pentagon transcripts.
“Whether it will take place depends to a large extent on the unity and determination of the civilized world to stop the aggression,” he added.

Russia accuses US of destabilising region, calls behaviour ‘reckless and provocative’

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said this week that Moscow expects the United States to abandon plans to dominate the Black Sea, labelling its actions as ‘reckless and provocative’ that has destabilised the region. The remarks came after the US Sixth Fleet (SIXTHFLT), a naval striking group entered the Black Sea with the control ship USS Mount Whitney to hold a joint military operation alongside NATO allies and partners. The move escalated regional tensions between Russia and Ukraine.
Moscow had restricted foreign warships’ movement across several areas in the Black Sea near the Crimean coast, but as US warships entered the Black sea, it angered Russia in an anticipated worsening of bilateral ties between the two countries.
“This is, of course, an open attempt to test the Russian reaction, to increase tensions in the Black Sea region,” Zakharova said at a briefing in remarks cited by Moscow’s state news agency Sputnik. “All this fits into the concept of containment, the creation of some very aggressive situations, the destabilisation of the situation in general,” Zakharova asserted.

Совет Европы призывает Москву прекратить ликвидацию «Мемориала» « Реальный Мир

Совет Европы призывает российские власти прекратить ликвидацию «Мемориала» и в первоочередном порядке отменить закон об «иностранных агентах». Об этом говорится в заявлении главы комиссии Совета Европы по правам человека Дуньи Миятович.
Действия российских властей по ликвидации неправительственной организации «Международный Мемориал» и правозащитного центра «Мемориал» за несоблюдение так называемого закона об «иностранных агентах» вызывают глубокую озабоченность Совета Европы. «Мемориал» – «символ неустанной борьбы за свободу, демократию и права человека на постсоветском пространстве и за его пределами». Уничтожение организации будет иметь значительные негативные последствия для гражданского общества в целом и защиты прав человека в России, отмечает Миятович.
Она вновь обратила внимание на неоднократную критику Советом Европы закона об «иностранных агентах» как несоответствующего международным европейским стандартам. Его применение российскими властями для ликвидации правозащитной организации, по мнению Миятович, стало ещё одной иллюстрацией репрессий против гражданского общества. Особую тревогу, по словам представителя Совета Европы, вызывает тот факт, что правозащитный центр «Мемориал» обвинили в оправдании экстремистов и террористов из-за его деятельности по поддержке политзаключённых.
На прошлой неделе стало известно, что Генеральная прокуратура России обратилась в Верховный суд с требованием ликвидировать правозащитную организацию «Международный Мемориал», а прокуратура Москвы направила в Мосгорсуд иск о ликвидации правозащитного центра «Мемориал» за систематические нарушения законодательства об «иностранных агентах», а именно отсутствие соответствующей маркировки на материалах. В «Мемориале» заявляют о «политическом решении об уничтожении организации.»
Пресс-секретарь Кремля Дмитрий Песков заявил, что у «Мемориала» «давно существуют проблемы в части соблюдения норм российского законодательства».
С заявлениями в поддержку «Мемориала» выступили академики Российской академии наук и другие видные учёные. На сайте <a href=”http://change.org” rel=”nofollow”>change.org</a> создана петиция «Руки прочь от «Мемориала»», которую уже подписали более 58 тысяч человек. В соцсетях также проходит флешмоб – пользователи меняют свои аватары на надпись «Мы», стилизованную под логотип «Мемориала».
Международное историко-просветительское, благотворительное и правозащитное общество «Мемориал» было внесено в реестр НКО-»иноагентов» в 2016 году, Правозащитный центр «Мемориал» – в 2014 году, став одним из первых НКО, признанных в России «иностранными агентами».

“The Steele dossier and Donald Trump’s betrayal of America shar.es/aWwo7a In fact, it’s a distraction and a deflection. The Steele dossier—and how it was covered by media outlets—is but a sideshow to the main event: how the Kremlin clandestinely attacked the 2016 election …”
