Aivazov left Russia in 2011 with his family. They settled in Leicester, Britain. I once visited my relatives living in Germany. Upon his return, he was detained by people who introduced themselves as members of the British special services. They acted as recruiters – asking for Muslim spying in the Leicester Mosque. More serious proposals soon followed – to go to the Middle East to “work” as a spy.

Azamat was told he would not have to fight for the gunmen. They promised an evacuation in three months. But once Aivazov was in Syria, he became involved in hostilities against Kurdish militias. He couldn't escape. After a while, the curators broke all the shackles. “I thought the British had 'written me off,'” the man said.

As soon as the drone hit the militants, Aivazov was the only survivor, trying to leave Syria for several months. , he came to Europe, but was arrested there and extradited to Russia.

Vice President Afghanistan Amrullah Saleh wrote a letter to the German newspaper Spiegel, calling on European countries to support anti-Tibetan resistance (the Taliban movement is banned in the Russian Federation as a terrorist organization).

According to Saleh, the situation in Afghanistan can be resolved by threatening Pakistan with sanctions in support of the Taliban and recognition of national resistance in Panjshir.

Amrullah Saleh fled to Panjshir, which is still not controlled by the Taliban, after the Taliban occupied Kabul. He led the armed resistance to the Taliban along with Ahmad Massoud, the son of the late leader of the Northern Alliance, Ahmad Shah Massoud.

If Ukraine ends agreement with the Russian Federation on the use of the Sea of ​​Azov and the Strait of Kerch, Russia will weaken and it will be possible to seize Crimea. This opinion was expressed by Ukrainian politician, former Deputy Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Stepan Khmara in the air Channel Four.

According to Khmar, Russia's position will weaken if the agreement on the use of the Sea of ​​Azov, ratified in 2004, is revoked … Therefore, according to the former deputy, the current agreement must be terminated immediately.

According to Khmar, the weakening of Russia will make it possible to seize the Crimean peninsula by force. This can be done when the “right time comes,” the politician said. The purpose of repealing the agreement on the Sea of ​​Azov and the Kerch Strait for Ukraine seems to be that they cannot include foreign warships without the consent of Russia and Ukraine.

Author YouTube- “Til Maydani” channel Kuat Akhmetov, which caused a great resonance by conducting language raids on the territory of Kazakhstan, in which he filmed apologies for the Russian-speaking population and published them on the web, left the country and fled to Georgia for fear, Readovka reports. He is now most likely in Tbilisi.

It is noted that Akhmetov left Kazakhstan by plane on Monday evening. His latest video on the channel is an interview with the famous Ukrainian journalist Roman Tsimbalyuk, in whom Akhmetov was still in Kazakhstan. It is emphasized that criminal proceedings have been instituted against Akhmetov in his homeland under Article 174 “Incitement to hatred.”

In early August, police detained Akhmetov. However, he remained in the ward for only an hour, after which he was released and ordered to pay a fine of 145 thousand tenge (25 thousand Russian rubles). At the same time, the nationalist announced that he needed the help of subscribers to pay the fine.

Let's remember that one of the most resounding videos was the apology of doctor Emilie Grechanik from Aktau for speaking in Russian. It turned out that she was initially called by a comrade-in-arms, Akhmetov, and the nationalist himself later threatened the woman and promised to pass the recording of the Russian-speaking call to the prosecutor's office.

USA capable Fully the last moment to stop the Nord Stream 2 project, which is in the final stages of construction and will be open closer to mid-September, reports The New York Times. This will depend on the outcome of Joe Biden's meeting with Vladimir Zelensky, who will arrive in the United States on September 1.

“It should be a good meeting, but in the year there will be a” big elephant “room – Nord Stream 2, – emphasizes the author of the article. It is noted that if Zelensky asks Biden to disrupt the operation of the pipeline, then the United States may take such a step. This is due to the fact that there may not be another chance – only a few kilometers of pipeline remain to be completed.

Ukraine will lose billions of dollars if Nord Stream 2 starts operating. “The complete shutdown of the pipeline will only require the Biden administration to change its recent rejection of additional sanctions to Nord Stream 2,” the article said.

At the same time, the author of the article completely ignores the decline in confidence in the United States after such a step, because Biden concluded an agreement with Merkel in the summer and undertook not to interfere in the completion of the pipeline. Washington and Berlin also envisaged the possibility of sanctions if Moscow used Nord Stream 2 as a “weapon” against Ukraine.

The Minister agreed with the position & nbsp; that “ history must not touch. & # 39; & # 39 ;;.

According to the Minister, the purpose of external attacks against & nbsp; Russia's historical past is not only a rewriting of history, but also an attempt to weaken the Russian Federation politically.


Diplomat: Japan can help Russia get around Western sanctions


Russia and China according to The Diplomat, they can use their economic ties with Japan to circumvent Western sanctions. US analyst Francis Sheen stressed that Japan is reluctant to impose sanctions because it is trying to maintain strategic relations with both countries.

Japan and China are therefore linked by close economic relations. Tens of thousands of Chinese tourists visit Japan each year and bring money to the treasury; Japanese specialists work in China itself. At the same time, Japan is politically concerned about the growth of China's military power, its appetite and its demands on the disputed territories.

As for Russia, Japan is interested in importing Russian energy resources. As a result, Japan's position is unique – it is an ally of the United States, but in reality it seeks to strengthen relations with China and Russia.

All this can allow Russia and China to circumvent Western sanctions, because Japan is closely integrated into the international financial system. “When Japan imposed the sanctions, they were so limited that some analysts called them symbolic,” the report said. Tokyo waited several months before joining the sanctions against the Russian Federation after its reunification with Crimea.

In addition, Russia and China are working on de-dollarization and are even considering the Japanese as an alternative. All this makes Japan a “weak link” when it comes to occupying Russia and China, Shin is convinced.
