Russia’s Foreign Ministry has said it is “bewildered and disappointed” over new US sanctions targeting eight Russian companies, including defense firms and pilot training academies, which the State Department claims engage in “proliferation” activity with Iran, North Korea and Syria.
Paul Graig Robers, former Assistant Secretary of US Treasury, talks to RT on the issue.

While the restrictions will cause “no serious problems” for Russia, they undermine the fight against global terrorism, which Washington has been claiming is its priority, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement.

“This step runs counter to the statements we hear from Washington that emphasize the fight against terrorism, in particular in Syria, where it has gained a foothold. On the contrary, it is completely at odds with such declarations and undermines the prospects of setting up comprehensive multilateral cooperation to destroy Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS,ISIL] and other terrorist groups that pose a threat to all countries, including the US,” Zakharova said.
“Washington again does the bidding of those who made a consistent destruction of Russia-US cooperation their main priority. These people have long been searching for enemies in the place where they don’t really exist. Such an approach does not obviously meet the security interests of the US,” Zakharova said………………………

The General Command of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Syrian Arab Armed Forces announced on Friday that army units reclaimed all the points and blocks of buildings which were infiltrated by terrorists north of Jobar.

In a statement, the General command said that army units, in cooperation with the supporting forces, reclaimed all points and the blocks of buildings that had been infiltrated by terrorists from Jabhat al-Nusra and groups affiliated to it in the factories area in the northern part of Jobar neighborhood at the eastern outskirts of Damascus.

The statement said that army units are still pursuing the remnants of the fleeing terrorists in the depths of Jobar, while engineering units are dismantling and removing explosive devices and bombs planted by terrorists in the area.

The General Command pointed out that during the past 48 hours, the factories area north of Jobar has become a graveyard for successive waves of terrorists in which hundreds of them were killed, adding that the success of the Syrian Armed Forces in crushing the successive waves of terrorists in the factories area confirms the terrorists’ foolishness on one hand, and the insistence of their operators and sponsors to use them as fuel and push them to suicide to serve their agendas and goals on the other hand.

The General Command concluded its statement by renewing its pledge to the Syrian people to remain the bastion that protects Syria, reaffirming its determination to continue the war on terrorism until it is eliminated and until security and stability are restored to the entirety of the Syrian Arab Republic……………………

On March 23rd, Gallup headlined “South Sudan, Haiti and Ukraine Lead World in Suffering”, and the Ukrainian part of that can unquestionably be laid at the feet of U.S. President Barack Obama, who in February 2014 imposed upon Ukraine a very bloody coup (see it here), which he and his press misrepresented (and still misrepresent) as being (and still represent as having been) a ‘democratic revolution’, but was nothing of the sort, and actually was instead the start of the Ukrainian dictatorship and the hell that has since destroyed that country, and brought the people there into such misery, it’s now by far the worst in Europe, and nearly tied with the worst in the entire world.

America’s criminal ‘news’ media never even reported the coup, nor that in 2011 the Obama regime began planning for a coup in Ukraine, and that by 1 March 2013 they started organizing it inside the U.S. Embassy there……………………

The neocon royalty Kagans are counting on Democrats and liberals to be the foot soldiers in the new neocon campaign to push Republicans and President Trump into more “regime change” wars, reports Robert Parry.

The Kagan family, America’s neoconservative aristocracy, has reemerged having recovered from the letdown over not gaining its expected influence from the election of Hillary Clinton and from its loss of official power at the start of the Trump presidency.

Back pontificating on prominent op-ed pages, the Family Kagan now is pushing for an expanded U.S. military invasion of Syria and baiting Republicans for not joining more enthusiastically in the anti-Russian witch hunt over Moscow’s alleged help in electing Donald Trump.

In a Washington Post op-ed on March 7, Robert Kagan, a co-founder of the Project for the New American Century and a key architect of the Iraq War, jabbed at Republicans for serving as “Russia’s accomplices after the fact” by not investigating more aggressively.

Then, Frederick Kagan, director of the Critical Threats Project at the neocon American Enterprise Institute, and his wife, Kimberly Kagan, president of her own think tank, Institute for the Study of War, touted the idea of a bigger U.S. invasion of Syria in a Wall Street Journal op-ed on March 15.

Yet, as much standing as the Kagans retain in Official Washington’s world of think tanks and op-ed placements, they remain mostly outside the new Trump-era power centers looking in, although they seem to have detected a door being forced open.

Neoconservative pundit Robert Kagan and his wife, Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, run a remarkable family business: she has sparked a hot war in Ukraine and helped launch Cold War II with Russia and he steps in to demand that Congress jack up military spending so America can meet these new security threats…………………………………..

Syria affirmed that the Israeli aggression that took place on Friday, which is a violation of international law, the UN Charter, and the sovereignty and the sanctity of Syrian territory, was not the first of its kind but is a part of a long series of attacks carried out by Israel to support its agents in the terrorist war on Syria.

In two letters sent by the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry to the UN Secretary General and the President of Security Council, the Ministry said that in flagrant defiance of the international legitimacy and UN resolutions and the sovereignty and the inviolability of the Syrian territory, four Israeli warplanes violated the Syrian airspace in al-Breij area through the Lebanese territories at 2:40 am and targeted a military site in the eastern countryside of Homs province.

The Ministry went on to say that the Syrian Arab Republic confirms that all Israeli security, military, and political resources have been harnessed directly and indirectly in order to enable terrorists to weaken Syria and to prolong the terrorist war as much as possible.

The Ministry added that Syria confirms that all the pretexts and allegations made by Israel to justify the launching of such attacks are cheap diversionary attempts that have been used every time Israel fails to justify the continuation of its illegal occupation of the Syrian Golan, the Palestinian territory, and the rest of the occupied territories in southern Lebanon………………….

Do not believe the Zionist lies. Their aircraft were not targeting a convoy of trucks carrying ground-to-ground missiles bound for Hizbollah bases in the Lebanon.

In fact, the bombers were targeting Syrian Army operations near Palmyra, specifically those having to do with removal of rats from oil and gas fields which ISIS desperately needs to keep its cash flow viable…………

Hundreds of US Marines have arrived in Syria to establish an outpost in support of the operation to retake the city of Raqqa, the de-facto Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) capital in the country, the US-led coalition confirmed on Thursday.

“We are talking about an additional 400 or so forces in total, and they will be there for a temporary period,” coalition spokesman US Air Force Colonel John Dorrian said.

The Washington Post, which was the first to break the news citing anonymous defense officials, stated that the marines will be working to establish an outpost from which they can fire artillery in support of the fight for Raqqa.

According to the newspaper, the new deployment is part of an amphibious task force of the 11th US Marine Expeditionary Unit, which left San Diego on Navy ships in October. It includes part of an artillery battery that can fire 155mm shells from M777 Howitzers.

The Washington Post said that the marines will be based within no more than 32km (20 miles) from the frontline outside Raqqa, as that is the maximum range of their artillery………………………..

The 2016 NewsFront series on the war in the Donbass, Eastern Ukraine, is the antidote to the 2014 Vice series on the conflict. If you had watched the original Vice ‘documentary’ episodes, you would have consumed a large dose of US State Department propaganda, produced with an almost unlimited amount of resources. However, with the help of independent donations, NewsFront were able to create their own series which counters the US faux-narrative. This 2016 episode focuses on Commander Givi, Mikhail Tolstykh, and his Battalion, “Somali”. Undefeated in battle, Givi was murdered via an act of terrorism, in his office in Donetsk, on February 8th 2017.

Horrifying scenes of burned and mutilated bodies dot the mountainous desert around the newly-liberated Syrian city of Palmyra. RT’s Lizzie Phelan has come across the remains of four soldiers, which could be among the many undiscovered victims of Daesh (Islamic State, ISIS, ISIL).

The rocky desert around the ancient city of Palmyra has seen bloody battles recently as Daesh terrorists were being pushed back from the city by the Syrian Arab Army, for the second time in two years.

The terrorists retreated leaving behind a trail of corpses, young and old, many of ISIS ranks but also the victims of their brutal acts. Phelan reports that the Syrian Army simply does not have enough resources to scour hectares of the desert for remains, so it was not long before RT’s crew, accompanied by the Syrian forces, came across a site of atrocities.

Phelan describes finding charred and apparently decapitated bodies of two Syrian soldiers, while two more corpses were discovered in a ditch nearby………….

Speaker of the People’s Assembly Hadiyeh Abbas affirmed that Syria and Libya are facing the same threat, because the states that conspired against the two countries continue to support terrorists in them.
Meeting a delegation representing Libyan tribes and cities on Monday, Abbas said that foreign interference in Libya only seeks to control oil and achieve personal interests, and all other slogans merely seek to justify this interference.
She said that Syria, despite the terrorism is has been facing for six years, in anxiously watching what is happening to the Libyan people under the pretext of international protection of civilians, stressing the need for Libya to emerge from its ordeal and recover its normal life and its pan-Arab role.
For his part, the head of the delegation, Sheikh Ashraf Abdelfattah al-Tuwati Abu al-Qassem, said that Libyan tribes and cities salute the legendary steadfastness of the Syrian people, leadership, and army in the face of the conspiracy targeting them.
The two sides also stressed the importance of uniting Arab people and forces to confront colonialist plots that are targeting the region and supporting terrorism………………

‘Collateral damage is a justification term’ MSM bias exposed in coverage of Mosul vs. Aleppo ~ The UN fears up to 800 thousand civilians are still trapped in the ISIS-held part of Mosul, where the anti-terror operation is now raging. A similar situation was seen in neighbouring Syria a couple of months ago. Back then though, the UN raised concerns over the fate of a hundred thousand people in Eastern Aleppo, as Syrian forces tried to retake it from Al-Nusra terrorists. RT’s Ilya Petrenko compares the battles for the two cities.



‘ISIS cuts heads, breaks legs & provokes airstrikes’: Refugees describe Mosul terror (EXCLUSIVE) ~ As US-backed Iraqi troops push deeper into the IS-held areas of Mosul, thousands of civilians are forced to flee amid the terrorist’s increasingly gruesome attempts to hold them as human shields, inhabitants of an overflowing refugee camp told RT.

A veteran of 20 years of secret military operations said the administration of President Donald Trump has broadened the authority for more such operations overseas………………

Head of the delegation of the Syrian Arab Republic to Geneva, Bashar al-Jaafari, said the key achievement that has been reached during the fourth round of the Syrian talks in the Swiss city is the agreement on an agenda of four main points.

Speaking in a press conference on Saturday after the fourth round of the Syrian-Syrian dialogue in Geneva wrapped up, al-Jaafari said the fourth point, which is that of terrorism, was added to the three other points of governance, the constitution and the elections.

To name it, was included [in the agenda] upon our request, and it has gained the support of all the participant parties with the exception of the so-called ‘Riyadh delegation’ group.”

Al-Jaafari criticized the “Riyadh opposition” group, saying it is “clowning around” with its statements, which makes it look politically immature……………..

Au 5ème jour [27 février] de la Conférence de Genève 4, où les trois plateformes de l’opposition syrienne n’ont eu de cesse d’évoquer la résolution 2254 (2015), chacune l’interprétant en fonction de ses sponsors, sans jamais évoquer la résolution 2253 (2015) condamnant et sanctionnant les suppôts du terrorisme pourtant adoptée sous les mêmes conditions contraignantes du chapitre VII, Nasr al-Hariri, chef de l’autoproclamé «Haut Comité des négociations» du Groupe de Riyad, a entamé sa conférence de presse en ces termes :

«Imaginez la catastrophe humaine en Syrie… Nous avons remis [à Staffan de Mistura] une deuxième note qui parle des violations commises en Syrie d’un point de vue général et, notamment, de celles qui ont eu lieu depuis le début de ces négociations à Genève [23 février]. Naturellement, aujourd’hui, l’humanité a enregistré une victoire en Syrie. Celle de cette équipe de défense civile, connue de vous tous… celle des « Casques Blancs » qui ont gagné un Oscar aux USA pour leur film du même nom. Nous les saluons avec affection et considération du fond du coeur…» [1].

Nous n’irons pas plus loin dans la traduction, ni ne reviendrons sur la supercherie desdits «Casques Blancs», oscarisés par la dictature hollywoodienne après avoir raté le prix Nobel en 2016 [2]. Nous nous contenterons de signaler, à qui voudra s’en émouvoir, que des terroristes du Front al-Nosra se baladent librement dans les couloirs de l’ONU, l’un d’entre eux se tenant à sa tribune, à la gauche de M. Nasr Hariri.

D’après une vidéo d’Al-Akhbariya TV [3], il s’agit de Bachar al-Zoubi, commandant dudit «Liwa al-Yarmouk», comme en atteste d’autres sources, tel cet extrait d’un ouvrage de Jacques Baud [4], spécialiste suisse du renseignement et du terrorisme………………………..

Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu has reported to the commander-in-chief, President Vladimir Putin, that the historic city in Syria’s Homs province has been liberated, Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov said.

Syrian Army specialists have begun examining the historic part of Palmyra with the aim of demining the city, a RIA-Novosti correspondent reports.

Fortifications on the outskirts of Palmyra are being erected to prevent any counter-offensive by Islamic State, he added.

“The flag of the Islamic State terrorist group has been removed from the city of Palmyra. It should be viewed as a joint success of the Russian Air Force and the Syrian military.

4 Dead Russian Ambassadors in 3 Months ~ Foul play?

Tags

, , , ,


A farewell to Russia’s permanent representative to the UN, Mr Churkin, for well over a decade, featuring Spokeswoman for Foreign Affairs Maria Zakharova. Following the Assassination of Andrei Karlov in Turkey earlier this year, was the death of Andrey Melanin in Athens of ‘natural causes’. Ambassador Alexander Kadakin to India had died of an apparent heart attack, even though no previous health issues were known. Together with Vitaly Churkin, this now brings the death total of Russian officials serving in foreign capacity to 4, all within a 3 month period. Coincidence? Or does the CIA have a long arm? This episode features Mr Churkin dispelling allegations of Russia having dropped leaflets over Aleppo, urging civilians to leave the city or face death. Of course, it is only the senile or those with short memories, who would think that “evidence” presented in the UN Security Council, is anything more than fabricated Neocon garbage. See linked video at the end, with Colin Powell’s “weapons of mass destruction” a.k.a simple washing powder. The 2003 invasion of Iraq, based on this kind of “evidence” would take over half a million Iraqi lives…. To shame. US military deaths cannot be calculated due to contractors such as Blackwater not being included in official statistics. Military industrial company fat cat CEOs only rub their hands in glee.

REVEALED: CIA killed Russian Ambassadors

Tags

, , , ,


This episode is taken off political analyst’s Valeriy Piakin’s channel – his explanation of recent events confirms what many have suspected. In the past few months, an unusual amount of individuals in pro-Russian fields of work have passed away. Starting with Arsen Pavlov (Motorola), a Commander in the Donbass region, followed by Russian Ambassadors to Turkey and India; Mikhail Tolstyh (Givi) – another high ranking Commander in the Donbass, and now – Russia’s permanent representative to the UN, Vitaly Churkin. Piakin’s explanation posits that all of these individuals were victims of US intelligence operations – but why?

The intention is to remove all individuals who have something to do with the Minsk agreement, so that it can no longer realistically be implemented. The Minsk Agreement (a ceasefire, followed by elections and self-determination in Eastern Ukraine) is counterproductive to the West. To allow Minsk to happen would be to undo all of elites’ hard work to date. This is why ”not fulfilling Minsk obligations” is always pinned on Russia in Western media – despite the fact it is not party to the document, and it is the Kiev junta who shells civilians of Eastern Ukraine.

If Piakin is correct, then everyone who defends Minsk – whether on the battlefield or through the information war – have reason to be concerned for their safety. People like Zakharchenko of the Donbass, and those below him, as well as Russia’s extended diplomatic community should be highly vigilant and ramp up their security against espionage.
