March 14, 2015. Where is Vladimir? Read his activities from the news from the Kremlin feed below, or from Pravda. He has not been seen in public for 10 days, and I am hearing he may have had a stroke, or has cancer, or is hanging out with a possible newborn baby. Hm. The full range from life to death.
I hope he has gone to Ukraine and Crimea, and is privately working out how to remove Russian troops as soon as possible.

The Russian Federation

Countries invade because they want war, world domination, to save inhabitants, or they want stuff. Like oil and gas. Which one is Russia? I don't know but I am listening to them. Above and below.

Israel can learn many lessons with the help of Russia's S-300 air defence systems in Syria
Israel likes to bomb Syria and get away with it. However, with S-300 air defence systems deployed in the war-torn country, Tel Aviv will have to negotiate with Bashar Assad, military expert Andrei Koshkin believes.On April 25, Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said that Israel would respond accordingly, if Damascus uses S-300 systems against Israeli Air Force. Would it be better for Israel to stop bombing Syria given that S-300 systems are purely defensive weapons? According to political scientist Andrei Koshkin, head of the department of political science and sociology at the Plekhanov Russian Economic University, Israel was worried in 2010 as well, when Russia and Syria agreed on the supplies of S-300 air defence systems. Russia subsequently canceled the deal after Western countries insisted Moscow should not ship its air defence systems to Damascus. These days, however, it has become obvious that the Western coalition likes to invade sovereign states with impunity and punish those who want to stop the West from acting so," Andrei Koshkin said. Israel does not have a peace treaty with Syria, so Tel Aviv feels like it can attack those that pose a threat to the security of Israel. Russian President Putin described the missile attack on Syria on the night of April 14 as an act of aggression. Syrian air defences destroyed 70 out of 100 missiles that the coalition launched. Undoubtedly, Israel's attack on Syria's T-4 base, where people were killed, should be considered an aggressive act as well, the political scientist told Pravda.Ru.According to him, the S-300  Favorit modified complex can destroy all carriers, including missiles. In a nutshell, it allows to neutralise any aggression from air. According to the expert, the statement from Russia's Defence Ministry about the supplies of S-300 systems to Syria forces aggressive states, like Israel, to bethink themselves and negotiate. "The situation inspires optimism, because it translates armed confrontation into diplomatic negotiations." It is S-300 systems that can make reason prevail over lawlessness. Just one statement from Russia was enough to make everyone in the Middle East quiet," Andrei Koshkin told Pravda.Ru. Interestingly, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at a briefing in Beijing that the question about the shipment of S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems to Syria had not been resolved yet. However, Syrian Ambassador to Russia Riyad Haddad said that S-300 missile systems had been delivered to Syria last month. Pravda.Ru Read article on the Russian version of Pravda.Ru

UN to say amen to aggression against Syria
Western countries will use a precedent to bypass USSR's veto at the UN Security Council to send a military contingent to Syria. This could be a smart move to make, because in this case military aggression against Syria will be conducted under the guise of international assistance. Donald Trump has already called upon Saudi Arabia and Qatar to send their military to Syria as well. Is Syria doomed? The implementation of such a scenario will be a good punishment for Russia's support of Bashar Assad's regime, The Guardian wrote. The newspaper referred to "Uniting for Peace" Resolution of the UN General Assembly from November 3, 1950. If the resolution receives agreement from nine out of 15 members of the UN Security Council, it will make it possible to bypass the veto right of a permanent member of the Security Council and submit the discussion of a certain issue to the UN General Assembly. "If the Security Council, because of lack of unanimity of the permanent members, fails to exercise its primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security in any case where there appears to be a threat to the peace, breach of the peace, or act of aggression, the General Assembly shall consider the matter immediately with a view to making appropriate recommendations to Members for collective measures, including in the case of a breach of the peace or act of aggression the use of armed force when necessary, to maintain or restore international peace and security. If not in session at the time, the General Assembly may meet in emergency special session within twenty-four hours of the request therefor. Such emergency special session shall be called if requested by the Security Council on the vote of any seven members, or by a majority of the Members of the United Nations," the resolution says. The Korean precedent The reason for the resolution was the conflict between North and South Koreas, when the fall of the pro-American regime of Seoul seemed inevitable. The USSR had blocked the UN resolution on sending UN's armed assistance to South Korea three times. After appropriate "recommendations," the decision was made, and military contingents from the United States, Australia, New Zealand made the northerners retreat from Seoul and developed an offensive against Pyongyang.However, after China, with the support of the USSR, deployed its troops to the DPRK, the border between the opposing sides was set on the 38th parallel. The resolution had been used about ten times in different versions, including in 1956, when Moscow sent an army to Hungary to suppress the anti-government uprising. We see that the outcome of the "hybrid" war between the USSR and the West in both cases was decided by the use of military force.

Russia's only aircraft carrier to receive new weapons
Russia's Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier will be equipped with new sea-launched Pantsir (NATO reporting name - Greyhound) anti-aircraft missile and gun complexes, as well as new power equipment, deputy commander of the Russian Navy Victor Bursuk told reporters. "The works will commence in May. The air defense capacity of the aircraft carrier will thus be improved. New sea-launched Pantsir complexes will be installed, and the power equipment will be replaced - new boilers and new pumps will be installed," he said.According to Bursuk, the Admiral Kuznetsov will resume its service in the Russian Navy after the modernization by 2021. Currently, the Russian Navy has only one aircraft carrier, or rather, a heavy aircraft carrying cruiser  Admiral Kuznetsov. She was put into operation in 1991 before the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Western media still horrified about Russia's Doomsday weapon
Western media continue discussing the Russian Status-6 arms complex known as the Doomsday weapon. According to Business Insider, the Status-6 unmanned submarine has enormous destructive power and can carry warheads with a capacity of 50 megatons. Nuclear weapons of this capacity can produce an underwater explosion, the consequences of which will be comparable to the 2011 tsunami in Japan.According to experts, such an underwater explosion may cause giant 100-meter waves. It was earlier reported that the US military came to conclusion that the Russian underwater Status-6 vehicle was a challenge to which the United States had no answer.Senior Research Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, Thomas Callender, a retired US Navy officer, said that given the maximum speed of the Status-6 of more than 29 meters per second and the depth of submersion of more than a kilometer, this makes the new Russian submarine a difficult target to destroy with the help of active weapons, The National Interest wrote. The United States currently has Mark-48 torpedoes, which, with a maximum range of 55 kilometers and a submersion depth of 800 meters, are incapable of destroying the Status-6.Pravda.RuRead article on the Russian version of Pravda.Ru

Russian Defense Ministry shows fragments of 'smart missiles' shot down in Syria
The Russian Defense Ministry has shown fragments of "smart missiles" that the Western coalition used in the attack on Syria on April 14. The missiles were shot down by Syrian air defences, chief of the Main Operations Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, Colonel-General Sergei Rudskoy said. "Fragments of the cruise missiles found in areas of interception have characteristic holes from damaging elements of guided anti-aircraft missiles. There are markers on the missiles indicating serial numbers, dates, manufacturers and other data." Rudskoy said. Rudskoy stressed that specialists will easily identify the origin of those fragments. He also said that at least 8.5 tons of explosives should have detonated in the area of the Syrian research center in Bazreh, but the scale of the damage speaks otherwise. The United States, Great Britain and France fired 105 missiles, but only 22 of them reached their targets. Pravda.RuRead article on the Russian version of Pravda.Ru

World War Three is near? The West wants to bypass Russia's veto at UN Security Council
Western countries have decided to resort to a mechanism that will let them bypass Russia's veto at the UN Security Council. This means that news stories on television may soon look like war-time reports. It goes about the UN resolution that will make it possible to submit the question of the investigation of the alleged chemical attack in Syria to the UN General Assembly, The Guardian says. UN ambassadors have already discussed the crisis in Syria in Sweden and intend to continue discussing it this week as well. OPCW experts are staying in Syria now, but the organisation does not have the authority to establish those responsible for the alleged attack in Syria's Douma, the newspaper wrote. It will be up to the UN Security Council to name the guilty. Russia has the veto right, and Moscow has already blocked more than a dozen resolutions against the Syrian authorities. In particular, Russia vetoed a US resolution on the development of a new mechanism for investigating chemical attacks in Syria.Therefore, UN countries want to use "Uniting for Peace" resolution from November 3, 1950. If nine of fifteen members of the UN Security Council agree, it will enable them to bypass Russia's veto and put the issue to the vote at the General Assembly. The resolution presumes a disputed issue is submitted to the General Assembly, if the Security Council, for example, is unable to maintain security and peace in the world. In this case, the UN General Assembly can give the Security Council any recommendations on peace-maintaining issues. To agree on a mechanism for establishing responsibility for the alleged chemical attack in Syria, two-thirds of the votes of the members of the UN General Assembly - all UN members - will be required."Uniting for Peace" Resolution has been used several times since it was adoption in 1950. In particular, it was used in 2006 on the issue of Israel's actions in East Jerusalem.Pravda.Ru requested an expert opinion on the subject from Mikhail Sinelnikov-Orishak, an American political analyst."UN Resolution 377 from 1950, "Uniting for Peace," which Western countries want to use to put maximum pressure on Russia, does not conform to the UN Charter. According to Paragraph 3 of Article 27 of the Charter, issues other than procedural matters shall be deemed accepted if they receive "concurring votes of all permanent members of the Council.""Consequently, a vote from a permanent member of the Security Council submitted against a pending decision shall be considered a vote of veto. Resolution 377, which states that the veto of a permanent member of the Security Council can be overcome under certain circumstances is known in the expert community as one of the most "contradictory acts of international law." It has been used several times in the history of the United Nations, but most often unsuccessfully."For example, in 1980, the UN General Assembly unblocked a resolution, which the USSR vetoed at the Security Council demanding an immediate withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan. Nothing happened. Finally, what is the difference between a resolution of the General Assembly and a decision of the Security Council on the same issue? A decision of the Security Council is binding, and a resolution is recommendatory," the expert told Pravda.Ru. Earlier, representatives of 114 countries supported the idea of a possible restriction of the use of the veto right by permanent members of the UN Security Council. Such a statement was made by Liechtenstein's Foreign Affairs Minister, Aurelia Frick.In 2013, France put forward a similar proposal, but Russia and the United States did not support the initiative. Currently, the veto right is a privilege for the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, the United States, China and France.Pravda.Ru Read article on the Russian version of Pravda.Ru

UK's Lehram fails to challenge the sale of Kuzbass mine
The Arbitration Court of the Kemerovo region dismissed the suit from British company Lehram Capital Investments LTD that was disputing the deal to sell its former asset - Kuzbass mine Gramoteinskaya, which, as the company believes, had been concluded under pressure, TASS reports. Before October 2013, Gramoteinskaya coal mine was a part of Evraz, but then it was sold for 10,000 rubles ($160 according to the current exchange rate - ed. note) to Britain's Lehram. In December 2013, the coal company, as reported by the administration of the Kemerovo region, went under the control of entrepreneur Alexander Schukin (he was involved in the case as a third party). At the same time, Lehram CEO Igor Rudyk, a national of Kazakhstan, was detained in Kemerovo for violating migration legislation. Two years later, the British company filed a lawsuit against the Mining Equipment Repair Plant to recognize the 2013 sale of the mine null and void. "The court has decided to dismiss the claim," Judge Larisa Belyaeva said.

Silk Road To Germany: New Molotov-Ribbentrop-Mao Pact
By Jim Jones There has been a changing of the guard in world hegemony that has been underway for the last decade; it has been clandestine as befits the scenario, least it is exposed before the trap is sprung. To understand what is happening, one needs to step back in time and follow the leads that have been given by the various players. The players in this game of world one-upmanship chess are; Germany, Russia and China. It would be easy to say that three more unlikely bed mates would be harder to find; at first superficial glance this may well be so.  Germany and Russia hardly have had the best of relationships over the last 200 years and China may well be perceived as a major threat to Russia in the Far East.  But if we examine the strategic benefits of such an alliance, we see major benefits to the parties.
