Breaking News - Caspian Sea deal may end long-held claims
 
06:31
Caspian Sea: Five countries sign deal to end dispute It is a landmark deal that has been more than two decades in the making. Russia, Iran, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan - all bordering the Caspian Sea - have agreed in principle on how to divide it up. Their leaders signed theConvention on the Legal Status of the Caspian Sea in the Kazakh city of Aktau on Sunday.It establishes a formula for dividing up its resources and prevents other powers from setting up a military presence there.It is an important step in the easing of regional tensions, but the deal over the world's largest inland body of water matters for several reasons. Here's what you need to know about the hotly disputed Caspian Sea.1. Its legal status has been complicatedIt would be reasonable to assume that the Caspian Sea is, well, a sea. But at the heart of this long-running dispute is whether or not the 370,000 sq km (143,000 sq mile) body of landlocked water should be considered a lake.Until the dissolution of the Soviet Union (USSR), that's what it was known as and shared between the USSR and Iran.But the arrival into the scene of new countries that split from the USSR complicated this issue, with ensuing claim and counterclaim. Even Russia at times argued it was a sea and not a lake. Why is the difference so important?If it is treated as a sea, then it would be covered by international maritime law, namely the United Nations Law of the Sea.This binding document sets rules on how countries can use the world's oceans.

Russia, Iran, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan - all bordering the Caspian Sea - have agreed in principle on how to divide it up. CASPIAN SEA?OR LAKE? Though surrounded by land it is considered as sea by the four nations except Iran Why is the difference so much important? Treated as a sea, then it would be covered by international maritime law- The United Nations Law of the Sea . This binding document sets rules on how countries can use the world's oceans. Meaning others can seek access to its resources. But if it is defined as a lake, then it would have to be divided equally between all five countries.

Is it a lake or sea? Five nations sign landmark Caspian agreement | Al Jazeera English
 
02:30
It took 22 years of negotiations, but the leaders of Russia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, and Turkmenistan have signed an agreement on the legal status of the Caspian Sea. The dispute hinged on the definition of the Caspian as either a "lake" or a "sea". The agreement means the five countries can move forward with sharing out the resource-rich inland body of water, the largest in the world.

Caspian Sea deal may end long-held claims
 
09:50
It is a landmark deal that has been more than two decades in the making.  Russia, Iran, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan - all bordering the Caspian Sea - have agreed in principle on how to divide it up.  Their leaders signed the Convention on the Legal Status of the Caspian Sea in the Kazakh city of Aktau on Sunday. It establishes a formula for dividing up its resources and prevents other powers from setting up a military presence there. It is an important step in the easing of regional tensions, but the deal over the world's largest inland body of water matters for several reasons.  Here's what you need to know about the hotly disputed Caspian Sea.1. Its legal status has been complicated It would be reasonable to assume that the Caspian Sea is, well, a sea. But at the heart of this long-running dispute is whether or not the 370,000 sq km (143,000 sq mile) body of landlocked water should be considered a lake. Until the dissolution of the Soviet Union (USSR), that's what it was known as and shared between the USSR and Iran. But the arrival into the scene of new countries that split from the USSR complicated this issue, with ensuing claim and counterclaim.  Even Russia at times argued it was a sea and not a lake.  Why is the difference so important? If it is treated as a sea, then it would be covered by international maritime law, namely the United Nations Law of the Sea. This binding document sets rules on how countries can use the world's oceans. It covers areas such as the management of natural resources, territorial rights, and the environment. And it is not limited to littoral states, meaning others can seek access to its resources. But if it is defined as a lake, then it would have to be divided between all five countries - and a formula about who gets what is not the easiest of equations to solve.  For instance, some countries, such as Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan, established an early claim over large areas of the Caspian and stood to lose out under a new split. Sunday's agreement goes some way to settling this dispute.  The signed convention gives the body of water a "special legal status" which means it is not defined as a sea or a lake, Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister says.  The surface water will be treated like a sea - meaning freedom of access to all beyond territorial waters - but the seabed which is rich in natural resources will be divided up.  Boundaries have yet to be negotiated. So the basis of the disagreement stems from who gets access to what. This is important because...2. It is rich in oil and gas The Caspian Sea is highly-prized for its vast oil and gas reserves.  It's estimated there are 50 billion barrels of oil and nearly 300 trillion cubic feet (8.4 trillion cubic metres) of natural gas beneath its seabed. That is why disagreements over how to divide some of its huge oil and gas fields have been numerous - and acrimonious.

Papian, Experts Discuss Legal Powers of Sevres Treaty
 
05:10
GLENDALE, CA--Ara Papian, an international law specialist and the foremost expert on the Treaty of Sevres, spoke to a packed audience at the Glendale Library on Saturday, October 2, about the ramifications of implementing the Treaty of Sevres in the international arena. The event was organized by the United Commemorative Committee, a coalition of leading community organizations, coordinating Armenian Genocide commemorative events in Southern California. Also speaking at the presentation were California Courier Publisher and Lincy Foundation Vice President Harut Sassounian, AEF Chair of Armenian Studies Dr. Richard Hovannisian, and Woodrow Wilson decedent Donald Wilson Bush. Representatives from the traditional Armenian political parties also presented on the issue. The speakers discussed the modern day application of the treaty and the need to collaborate with international legal experts to ascertain the exact legal power of the document. Key to the presentation was an emphasis on the Republic of Armenia's vital role in advancing the Armenian people's historic claims through international courts of law. The Treaty of Sevres was signed after the Armenian Genocide at the end of World War I on August 10 1920, between the Ottoman Empire and Allied powers. The international document recognized the then Democratic Republic of Armenia and mandated that the frontiers of Armenia and a new Turkish state be fixed in the provinces of Erzerum, Trebizond, Van and Bitlis through an arbitration award by the US President Woodrow Wilson. Sevres empowered Wilson's award to be binding with or without treaty ratification, but the Allied Powers failed to implement its decisions and instead signed new treaties that recognized a Turkish Republic that encompassed must of its former Ottoman territories, including those awarded to Armenia.

Lecture of Opportunity | Larry Mayer: Law of the Sea and Mapping in the Arctic (and elsewhere)
 
01:08:25
Sept. 30, 2013. Larry Mayer on "Law of the Sea and Mapping in the Arctic (and elsewhere)," part of the Arctic Lecture Series and hosted by the Arctic Studies group. Synopsis: Article 76 of the Law of the Sea Treaty provides a mechanism whereby a coastal state can extend its sovereign rights over the resources of the seafloor and subsurface far beyond the 200 nautical mile Exclusive Economic Zone if certain geological and morphological criteria are met. To establish whether a coastal state is entitled to this "extended continental shelf" a coastal state must map the seafloor and the subsurface. Despite the fact that the U.S. has not yet acceded to the Treaty, the U.S. treats most of the Treaty as customary international law and, since 2003, has charged the Center of Coastal Mapping at the University of New Hampshire to carry out the mapping necessary to establish the limits of a U.S. extended continental shelf. Larry Mayer is a professor and the Director of the School for Marine Science and Ocean Engineering and the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping at the University of New Hampshire. He graduated magna cum laude with an Honors degree in Geology from the University of Rhode Island in 1973 and received a Ph.D. from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in Marine Geophysics in 1979. ***** Disclaimer: The views expressed are the speaker's own and may not necessarily reflect the views of the Naval War College, the Department of the Navy, the Department of Defense, or any other branch or agency of the U.S. Government.

WHY RUSSIA SHOULD FEAR USS MCCAMPBELL ?
 
06:35
The US Navy sent a USS McCampbell in Sea of Japan to challenge Russia’s maritime claims. This comes at a time when U.S and Russia are embroiled in heated exchange regarding Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF Treaty). To know more, please check the video on the above card. The operation is similar to those conducted by U.S in South China Sea. US Pacific Fleet spokesperson US Navy Lt. Rachel McMarr told CNN , “The USS McCambell sailed in the vicinity of Peter the Great Bay to challenge Russia’s excessive maritime claims and uphold the rights, freedoms, and lawful uses of the sea enjoyed by the United States and other nations". Pacific Fleet stated that the Freedom-of-Navigation Operation (FONOP) was “not about any one country, nor are they about current events, these operations demonstrate the United States will fly, sail and operate wherever international law allows. That is true in the Sea of Japan, as in other places around the globe.” In this video, Defense Updates analyzes why Russia should fear USS McCampbell ? Lets get started.

+4:3 Russian parliament passes new anti-terror bill
 
02:16
The lower house of the Russian parliament on Friday approved new legislation that toughens punishment for terrorism and requires terrorists' relatives to pay for the damage caused in attacks. The document comes as Russia is preparing to host the Winter Olympics in Sochi in February. Preparations for the games have been plagued by security concerns over an Islamic insurgency that has raged across the North Caucasus region. The bill, quickly passed by the State Duma in a unanimous vote, is expected to see a similarly swift approval in the upper house and will then be signed into law by President Vladimir Putin. Nikolai Kovalyov, a lawmaker who was one-time chief of the main KGB successor agency, the Federal Security Service (FSB) said: "We think that it's a very important form of preventive measures and action against terror, because the terrorist would know that it would not be just him held responsible, including financial responsibility, but his relatives too." However, the bill is not unanimously supported throughout Russia. Tatyana Lokshina, Deputy Director of Human Rights Watch's Moscow office said that it could potentially breach international law. She said: "This legislation has several characteristics. One of them is this terrible and unacceptable side of collective responsibility. International law prohibits collective responsibility." The document says that training for terrorist activities, something which isn't spelled out in the current law, is punishable by up to 10 years in prison. At the same time, it envisages that those involved in such training would be absolved of any punishment if they report it to the authorities. The bill also made it easier for law enforcement agencies to prosecute suspected terrorists. The current law requires authorities to turn to Russia's high court to declare a group of militants a terrorist organisation, while the new law leaves it for a local court where suspects are on trial to determine that. It also introduces a punishment of up to six years for those participating in a militant group abroad. The measure appears to be a response to Russian nationals fighting alongside rebels in Syria. Russian officials have voiced concern that they may launch attacks at home when they return. Security experts have said the insurgency that has spread across the North Caucasus after two separatists wars in Chechnya poses a potential threat to Putin's pet project, even though Russia has pledged to make the games "the safest Olympics in history." Last summer, a top Chechen rebel warlord called on militants to disrupt the Sochi Games, which he described as "satanic dances on the bones of our ancestors." Raising fears of a new wave of attacks before the games, a female suicide bomber blew herself up on a city bus in southern Russia on Monday, killing six people and injuring about 30. The suspected bomber came from Dagestan, a Caspian Sea province, which has become the centre of the Islamic insurgency.

Press Statements after Russian-Azerbaijani Talks.Part 1 July 3, 2008 Baku Заявления для прессы по итогам российско-азербайджанских переговоров. 3 июля 2008 года Баку PRESIDENT OF AZERBAIJAN ILHAM ALIEV: Dear Dmitry Anatolevich, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen. Once again, I would like to warmly welcome the President of the Russian Federation to Azerbaijan. We attach great importance to the official visit of the President of Russia and are confident that the visit will serve to strengthen the friendly and good-neighbourly relations between Russia and Azerbaijan. Our talks have been very useful, and we have discussed a wide range of bilateral issues, questions of regional cooperation and international relations. And I note with satisfaction that we are in basic agreement concerning all the items on the agenda. The content of relations between Russia and Azerbaijan has expanded and been enriched. We are actively cooperating in the political sphere, economic ties are growing, trade continues to increase apace and its overall structure is improving. We are cooperating in the transport sector, cultural spheres, in security and in strengthening security measures in our region, and this is not an exhaustive list of all the issues currently under discussion. Today we signed some very important documents that will determine the direction of our cooperation in the future. Among them, I would single out a joint Declaration on Friendship and Strategic Partnership between Russia and Azerbaijan. The very name of the Declaration speaks for itself. We see each other as friends, as countries that can call each other strategic partners. And this is not just a form of words: it constitutes the very essence of our relationship. These relations have a solid foundation and a profound history, and today are based on the principles of friendship, good neighbourliness, equality and mutual benefit. The Declaration covers all areas of our bilateral cooperation and it is very gratifying that what we in Azerbaijan consider the number one issue - the settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is also reflected in the Declaration. It says there that the conflict should be resolved on the basis of the principles and norms of international law, according to UN Security Council resolutions and the decisions of the OSCE relating to territorial integrity, sovereignty and the inviolability of state borders. We are grateful to Russia for taking this position and are confident that this position, as well as Russias active participation as co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group dedicated to the settlement of the conflict, will bring about the desired results. We are now actively discussing issues of energy cooperation, both existing ones and prospective ones. Cooperation in the energy sector has a good history and excellent prospects. Cooperation in oil and gas sphere is also based on historical achievements, and today we are considering new projects that are of mutual interest that will maximise the efficient use of hydrocarbon resources. Our countries are also involved with issues related to the settlement of the status of the Caspian Sea. We are neighbours in the Caucasus and on the Caspian Sea, and the level of cooperation between our countries is largely dependent on the reciprocal development of processes in the region and on issues of economic integration. The cultural content of our relations is expanding. Today, I told Dmitry Anatolevich that in Azerbaijan there are more than three hundred schools in which Russian is taught, 19 of them purely Russian schools, where instruction is only in Russian. Recently, it was decided to establish a branch of Moscow State University in Azerbaijan. In Azerbaijan, the largest Russian community in the south Caucasus, there are a lot of newspapers published in Russian. In other words, everything that is necessary for the cultural well-being of Russian-speaking citizens in Azerbaijan is being done. For this reason the content of our cultural cooperation occupies an important place in our relations, and we will continue to make efforts to ensure that it takes on new forms and features new projects. In other words, talk about our bilateral relations and the role they play here in the Caucasus can go on for quite a while. I do not want to take up an inordinate amount of your time, but I do want to say that on all the issues that were discussed we have a common understanding, a shared sense of what has been achieved and -- most importantly - good prospects for the future. I am confident that the visit will continue as successfully as it began and will become a very important step in the further development of our relations and the rapprochement of our nations. Thank you for your attention.

Is Russia Annexing The Azov Sea?
 
12:25
Tensions are escalating in the Azov Sea as historical territorial claims, botched agreements, and heightened military presence threaten the stability of the region and Ukrainian economic endeavors. The appearance of six Russian vessels – patrol personnel-carriers and draught gunboats – in mid-June, as well as FSB border checkpoints through the Kerch Strait, are signs of increasing aggression and loss of strategic balance in the region. While the situation has not yet escalated into military conflict, experts claim that Russia’s actions mark an attempt to suppress the economic activity of Ukraine’s regional ports and trade. Hromadske explores the crisis first hand, from delayed flights and shipping obstacles to possible Ukrainian responses to Russia’s de-facto blockade of Ukraine’s Azov ports.

Now, Israeli lobbying groups in Washington are pushing Republican lawmakers for the recognition of Israel’s claim over the Golan Heights. Such an act would mark the most significant validation of forcefully acquired land since 1945, and it would have a dramatic impact on the interpretation of international law.

Turkey's downing of Russian warplane explained
 
18:20
Support CaspianReport through Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/CaspianReport BAKU - A few weeks ago, a Russian Su-24 fighter-bomber was shot by the Turkish Armed Forces near the border of Syria. It was the first time a NATO member admitted to shooting down a Russian warplane since the end of the Cold War. What exactly happened is disputed by the Turkish and Russian governments. Both sides have conflicting stories with many disputed technical details. However, what is clear is that a Russian warplane was shot down one way or another. Equally important, the Turkish General Staff acknowledged direct responsibility for shooting down the aircraft. But here’s the thing, airspace violations by Russia and Turkey occur on a frequent base. Russia has violated the airspace of a number of NATO members and neighboring states. Turkey has violated the airspace of neighboring Greece, Iraq, and Syria. For example, last year alone, Turkey violated the air space of Greece over the Aegean Sea roughly 2.000 times. The point is, this incident has nothing to do with airspace violations or international law. Regardless of which side is telling the truth, the confrontation between Russia and Turkey is a geopolitical collision that was bound to happen. All it needed was the downing of an aircraft. In this report, we will look at the geopolitical aspects of the downing of the aircraft and explain the Turkish-Russian rivalry.

Lavrov accuses Ukraine of planning Crimea flare-up
 
01:59
(26 Nov 2018) Russia's foreign minister says Ukraine has violated international law and provoked Russia by sending its navy vessels through the Kerch Strait without permission. The Russian coast guard fired on three Ukrainian ships Sunday and then seized them along with the crews. The Ukrainian navy said six of its sailors were wounded, while Russia said that three Ukrainian seamen received light injuries. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov charged Monday that Ukraine violated international legal norms by failing to obtain authorisation for its vessels. Ukraine accused Russia of aggression, saying it had ignored a notification sent by the ships. Lavrov said it might be that Ukraine was counting on the fact that the West would support them as usual when sending their ships to Crimea, cautioning that the consequences are yet to be seen. A 2003 treaty designates the Kerch Strait and Sea of Azov as shared territorial waters, but Russia has sought to assert greater control over the passage since the 2014 annexation of Crimea.

Iran: the last frontier market.
 
07:37
More than 3 decades of political and economic isolation has not negatively impacted Iran’s attractiveness as an emerging market. Iran’s emergence from isolation could be the most significant opening of an economy since the fall of the Soviet Union. Iran has long been of geostrategic importance because of its central location in Eurasia and Western Asia. With an area of 1,648, 195 m2 Iran is the second largest country in the Middle East and the 18th largest country in the world. Its area roughly equals that of the United Kingdom, France, Spain, and Germany combined, or somewhat more than the US state of Alaska. The country has a population of 77 million ranking number 17 in the list of countries by population. Half of this population is under the age of 35 and there is literacy rate of 93%. With a population of 7,705,036, Tehran is the country's capital and largest city. It is as well known to be the leading cultural and economic center of Iran. The other major cities of the country are: Mashhad, Karaj, Isfahan, Shiraz and Tabriz. Iran is a major regional and middle power, exerting considerable influence in international energy security and the world economy through its large reserves of fossil fuels. Iran has the second largest proved gas reserves in the world after Russia and also ranks fourth in oil reserves. Iran's economy is a mixture of central planning, state ownership of oil and other large enterprises, village agriculture, and small-scale private trading and service ventures. The Iranian government's officially stated goal is to establish a new world order based on world peace, global collective security and justice. Attractive factors for any investor may include - An established banking sector - Transportation, aviation and energy infrastructure - Brand conscious consumer market - Large number of port facilities in Persian Gulf and Caspian Sea - Rich natural resources of gas, oil, copper, aluminum, silver and gold. - More than 20 free trade and special economic zones ready to serve international companies- some are actually tax free environments. - A gateway for shipments and business to and from South-West Asia and Central Asia Caucuses. - Attractive law on foreign investment The sectors that could attract investment in Iran are broad. The first and foremost obvious destination for development would be the energy sector which has been set back by the lack of new equipment and technical expertise as oil major entities haven’t had presence in the country. The other attractive sectors include aviation, retail, and automotive sectors. With the lifting of sanctions, the entry of official retail outlets will be able to tap into a large brand conscious population. This will boom the construction and retail sectors. Despite the promising picture we described, there are clearly obstacles to do business in Iran that would go beyond just sanctions. Any investor looking for investment in the country would face a set of challenges that is primarily due to not having much precedent of foreign investment during decades of isolation. Thus, having a business strategy, local knowledge and legal expertise will mitigate risk and maximize profit of investment in Iran: the last frontier market.

Irish envoy summoned for anti-settlement bill

Israel summons Ireland’s ambassador after the country’s parliament passed legislation banning imports of goods produced in Israeli settlements. Israel described the bill as dangerous. The Palestine Liberation Organization called the move historic and urged other countries to follow suit. The legislation will go to Ireland’s lower house of parliament for approval. Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories are illegal under international law. Israel has steadily expanded the settlements in defiance of calls to stop doing so.

Caviar exports set to boom as nuclear deal takes effect
 
04:14
(13 Nov 2015) LEAD IN: A businessman aims to make Iran the world's biggest caviar exporter once again. Ishaq Islami and his family have invested more than 100 million US Dollars in fish farms to produce the pricey delicacy. STORY-LINE: A sturgeon wriggles and thrashes in the hands of two fishery workers. They're employed by the Ghareh Boron fish farm in Goldasht village. The facility's 96 pools are pumped with nutrient-rich water from the Caspian Sea. And that's essential for farming sturgeon and the expensive eggs produced by the females. The farm manager's aim to boost Iran's position in the caviar market. "Iran used to be one of the biggest exporters of caviar in the world in the past decades. Nevertheless, Iranian caviar has sharply declined and is not commercial anymore," says Mahdi Islami, a fisheries expert and son of the farm's director. "So we have established these sites so that Iranian caviar regains its lost glory and splendour again and we return to the previous high export levels," he adds. Iran exported 40 tonnes of sturgeon eggs in 2000. By 2014 that total had dwindled to just one ton. But Ishaq Islami, director of Ghareh Boron, expects to harvest large quantities of roe, including the prized beluga variety. "This farm has been designed to produce 30 tonnes of caviar and 2,000 tonnes of sturgeon meat a year," he says. "Currently we have 1,350 tonnes of fish here and plan to reach 5,000 tonnes by 2018 and commercially enter the caviar market," Ishaq explains. Relaxation of trade sanctions following the recent nuclear deal between Iran, the USA and other world powers could make business easier. "We hope that as a result of the Iranian government's interaction with the world, the path will be opened for us to export our products abroad and bring in foreign exchange earnings. It does not make a difference where we will export to, the United States or Europe," say Ishaq. This is one of three sites run by Ishaq and his family. The farm currently breeds around half a million sturgeon fingerlings (juvenile fish) a year, but has the capacity for two million. Ishaq's daughter-in-law, a fisheries expert, says they are helping to protect a threatened species. "The objective of this farm is to prevent extinction of sturgeon species. The sturgeons are in fact known as living fossils and are ancient creatures," says Somayeh Najadzadeh. "The caviar, specifically harvested from Beluga sturgeon, is the world's most expensive caviar. But the fish is on the brink of extinction due to excessive fishing and pollution of sea and rivers, their habitats," she explains. The farm's owners say they've invested more than 100 million US dollars in the project. They expect to earn 90 million US dollars a year based on an average price of 3,000 US Dollars per kilogramme of beluga caviar (about 1,360 US Dollars per pound). But it takes at least 12 years for sturgeon to mature and produce the luxury eggs. The Geneva-based CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) are a UN-affiliated body that controls trade in endangered species. They temporarily froze international caviar sales in 2001 amid fears that the beluga species was facing extinction. The measure was aimed at Russia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan, who agreed to immediately implement fishing quotas and crack down on illegal fishing in order to avoid an outright ban. Iran was exempt from the measures as they had already put controls in place. 14 years on, there are still concerns. But the Iranian government is attempting to address the problem. It's trying to boost the sturgeon population by releasing fingerlings into the Caspian sea and surrounding rivers, the source of 90 percent of the world's caviar.

USA to drown Russia in sea of fire for supporting Assad
 
01:00
US threatens to expand the international isolation of the Russian Federation for the support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. According to White House spokesman Josh Earnest, if Russia does not join the US-led international coalition that conducts a counter-terrorist operation in Iraq and Syria and will support Assad instead, the move with isolate Moscow from the international community even more. Josh Earnest also accused the Syrian leader of the humanitarian tragedy, having obviously disregarded the humanitarian catastrophes that the United States has been causing in many countries of the world. The Kremlin believes that interfering into internal affairs of Syria is unacceptable. As President Vladimir Putin believes, it is up to Syrians to determine their own future. Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said there is still no clear understanding of what could be an alternative to the incumbent legitimate government of Syria in ensuring security in the country.

Russia: Foreign Ministry tackles the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights
 
03:18
Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson, Maria Zakharova, challenged the veracity of the reports of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), which is based in London, during a press conference in Moscow on Thursday. Zakharova accused the reports as exhibiting bias against Russia's airstrikes on targets within Syria. SOT, Maria Zakharova, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson (Russian): "There is also information that terrorist groups continue to receive reinforcements of people and equipment from abroad. This is a very dangerous tendency. These facts raise a question whether parties involved in Syrian conflict are interested in a peaceful settlement of the Syrian conflict and how this goal is correlated to financial and technical support of anti-government armed groups including those who directly cooperate with terrorists. It is not a secret and it's an obvious fact that without preventing external assistance, blocking channels of infiltration of militants, illegal trade of Syrian hydrocarbons and cultural valuables the task of eliminating the outbreak of international terrorism in Syria is complicated." SOT, Maria Zakharova, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson (Russian): "The most effective weapon in such conditions for the international community and each state is combating terrorism in all its forms and manifestations within the framework of active and partner international cooperation based on international law without any double standards." SOT, Maria Zakharova, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson (Russian): "There are so-called mass media reports which allege that Russian aircrafts bombed a field hospital in the Idlib Governorate in north-western Syria and killed reportedly 13 people. I cannot say that these reports are written by journalists but ingenuity of these reports delights. I would like to stress once again that this information appears with reference to Syrian Observatory for Human Rights based in London. As we all understand, it is very 'convenient' to cover and observe what is happening in Syria without leaving London and without the possibility to collect information in the field."

NO WATER FOR DONBAS: West Shrugs as Ukraine's Poroshenko Commits ISIS-Style War Crime
 
02:25
Subscribe to Vesti News https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCa8MaD6gQscto_Nq1i49iew?sub_confirmation=1 It's an outrageous war crime when ISIS uses water as a weapon. But when Kiev does it? Nothing to get worked up about. The human right to water "has been recognized in international law through a wide range of international documents, including international human rights treaties, declarations and other standards". This is why Poroshenko was put on Interpol's Most Wanted List after it was announced that "Kiev had stopped water supplies to the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic." We are of course teasing you. Poroshenko is a free man; as we type these words he's probably stuffing his face with Roshen bars as he watches re-runs of "Let's Make a Deal". Which leads us to the obvious question: When is using water as a weapon not okay? When you can accuse Assad of depriving people of water (even when the "moderate" rebels are clearly to blame), water as a weapon becomes not okay: From the article: "The United Nations has warned that sabotaging water supplies is a war crime after the main source for Syria's capital was cut, leaving millions of people facing shortages." You know who also uses water as a weapon? ISIS. And when ISIS uses water as a weapon, it's really not okay. According to CNN: [ISIS] has intentionally cut off water supplies to neighborhoods near the front line, according to Zuhair Hazem al-Jabouri, a Mosul City Council official responsible for supervising the city's water and energy services. "They (ISIS) cut the electricity to the water stations that feed several neighborhoods where Iraqi troops are advancing," Jabouri said. "They are depriving people of drinking water in eastern Mosul." Of course, Washington also has its own long, proud history of ruining water supplies. Just the other day we were reading Imperial Crusaders, by Alexander Cockburn and Jeffrey St. Clair. From page 194 of our paperback copy: [American] cruise missiles targeted Iraqi oil refineries, pipelines, chemical plants and water treatment systems. Ten years later, many of these facilities remained destroyed, unremediated and hazardous. The essay then descends into a very long list of crimes committed against the Iraqi people. Looking at U.S. military campaigns from the last twenty years, we can find similar examples of water "sabotage" during the bombings of Yugoslavia and Libya. Or just look at Michigan today. No bombs needed! So it appears Poroshenko has just taken a page from Washington's Art of War Crimes. Oddly enough, it seems ISIS has read this book, too.

Will resource wars look any different?
 
02:34
The lead-up to future wars will resemble WWI, Klare says. Question: Will resource wars look any different? Michael Klare: Well, I think that we should be thinking in terms of World War I, not World War II, not World War III or Korea or Vietnam, these are the kinds of wars that we're accustomed to thinking about, but think more about World War I and the events that proceeded it. That's the kind of situation we are looking at in Central Asia and the Caspian Sea and Africa. Those were all conflicts over geopolitical struggles over resources, what was called the "Great Gain" in those days and that case it was the struggle between the British empire and Russian empire in the same areas of the world, Central Asia in particular, and they were very much about the control of imperial territories, and they led to these kinds of clashes in these far-off areas over territory, over controls of key bases, of passes, the Khyber Pass, and that sort of thing. Well, this is the kind of struggles that are now taking place in the Caspian Sea region, in Central Asia, to some degree even beginning in Africa and certainly in the Persian Gulf region where the US, Russia and China are all jockeying with each other for geopolitical advantage and could lead not to intentional conflict, not to a deliberate decision to go to war. I don't think that is going to happen, but to unintentional conflict, to miscalculation, to bad decisions and the heat of panic, precisely the kind of situation I was describing where a local ethnic apprising of some sort in Tajikistan or a Kyrgyzstan or Azerbaijan overnight leads to unintended conflicts between US and Russian troops, without anybody thinking ahead that something like this could happen.

The head of the US State Department, Mike Pompeo, canceled his visit to North Korea because of a letter from the deputy chairman of the Central Committee of the DPRK Labor Party, Kim Yong Chol, the sources in the US administration announced. The letter arrived on Friday morning. It turned out to be "quite hostile," RIA NEWS reported with a reference to the Washington Post. The head of the State Department showed the letter to US President Donald Trump, who in his turn ordered to cancel the visit. Washington still refers to the stagnation in the negotiations on the matter of denuclearization. The DPRK, in their turn, rejected the US proposal for the denuclearization, and accused Washington in "duplicity." The American mass media reported on the explosion near the Statue of Liberty in the New York city. According to the known information, three propane tanks exploded on the island. After the explosion - a fire broke out. The cause of the incident was an error committed by the builders. One of the workers was hospitalized with non-lethal burns. The authorities immediately evacuated about 3,500 people. At the moment, the fire has been extinguished. The island and the statue are open for the visitors. Russia deploys the most powerful group of warships in the Mediterranean Sea since the start of Russian participation in the Syrian conflict, Interfax reports while citing the newspaper Izvestia. According to the publication - the group consists of ten warships of the Northern, Baltic, and Black Sea fleets, as well as Caspian Flotilla. Eight ships are equipped with cruise missiles "Caliber". The cruiser "Marshal Ustinov" is equipped with an anti-ship missile system "Vulkan". A few more ships are on their way to the group, Izvestia adds. A spokesman for the Syrian parliament, Naji Gabid, said during an interview with Izvestia that the presence of Russian warships near Syria is according with the international law, and it is approved by the Syrian authorities. Reporters of ANNA NEWS report from Syria with a reference to SANA agency. Flyers with calls to oppose the Kurdish occupation, and the US armed forces in the region are being spread in Rakka. Reporters report that the protest of the civilians intensified after one of the civilians, that was arrested by the men of ''Democratic forces of Syria'', died as a result of tortures. Earlier it was reported that there are inscriptions in support of the Syrian army and the government of Bashar Assad written on the walls of buildings in the administrative center of the region. The living wage in Ukraine today is three times below the UN poverty standard. This was stated by the head of the Committee of Economists of Ukraine Andrei Novak. "There are international UN standards that set the level of poverty. If a person lives on less than $ 5 a day, he or she lives below the poverty line. That makes 150 dollars per month. By today's current exchange rate it is 4,125 hryvnias. The living wage in Ukraine is exactly three times less than this limit of the UN poverty standard. The minimum pension is considered from the minimum subsistence, and the minimum wage is no longer there, and there are a lot of social charges.'' - Novak said. Vladimir Putin successfully overcomes the western pressure, and comes out of "isolation." - the Ambassador of Ukraine to the United States Valery Chaliy said to Ukrainian ''Channel 5''. According to him, Ukraine can't oppose the meetings of the Russian president with the Western leaders, and Ukraine only hopes that its fate is not being decided behind its back. Earlier we reported about the meeting of Vladimir Putin with Angela Merkel, where they spoke about the future of Ukraine.

Russia Launches Large-scale Military Drill in Mediterranean
 
06:22
Russia Launches Large-scale Military Drill in Mediterranean, Wednesday, 5 September 2018 | A large military drill ready to be launched by Russia in the east Mediterranean Sea ahead of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad’s planned phased offensive to regain Idlib will affect certain aviation routes in Israel, including Ben Gurion Airport, Sde Dov Airport and the Tel Aviv area. Dozens of warships and aircraft are taking part in the drill which will see the Russian army conduct naval and maritime maneuvers in the area. Moscow issued a statement saying that, “The exercise is meant to improve naval communication.” However, critics suspicious of Russia’s intentions say that Moscow is attempting to establish its presence in the Middle East in the wake of Assad’s reclaiming the last rebel-held enclave in the war-torn country. The exercise is expected to reach its highest point of intensity on Wednesday at 6 a.m. until Thursday at 1 p.m. and is scheduled to end on Saturday. According to Russia’s navy chief, Adm. Vladimir Korolyov, who is commanding over the exercise, 26 warships are taking part in the drill, along with two submarines and 34 aircraft. “We announced the exercise long enough in advance to ensure that international law is honored without any violations and to guarantee peace in the region,” Korolyov said. Navy aircraft, long-range transport planes, Tu-160 bombers, Il-38 and Tu-142MK fighter jets capable of hitting submarines and Sukhoi Su-33 and Sukhoi Su-30SM planes are also participating in the exercise. Russia has deployed dozens of warships across the Mediterranean Sea, including the Russian cruiser Marshal Ustinov. The ships, as well as the two submarines located in the area, are equipped with Kalibr Cruise missiles. The Kremlin says that the drill aims to prepare for scenarios in which Russia may be forced to face the US-led coalition operating in Syria. However, the military maneuvers will include the use of live missile and artillery fire. The Caspian Sea flotilla, participating in the drill, is preparing for a maneuver that has been dubbed the “Wall.” According to military sources, the “Wall” is a special system of building ships, tracking and attacking airports. In addition, as part of the maneuver, the coastal zone can be armed with anti-aircraft weapons in order to increase the ability to fight low-altitude radar missions, including cruise missiles. Using the system, the Russians plan to influence the division in and control over the region once the fighting in Syria comes to its end. The expected drill is not the only one Russia is conducting. Western countries fear that a vast military exercise Moscow is planning to hold in the near future will be used as a preparation to invade Poland, Lithuania or the Ukraine. Despite the fears, which were raised ever since Russia annexed the Crimea in 2014, Moscow completely denies the accusations. The Kremlin said last week that the exercise planned to take place in Belarus would consider a completely defensive scenario, while denying accusations it would serve as preparation for invasion. In the wake of the Zapad exercise that took place in 2017, Moscow sent 5,500 troops to Belarus that borders with Poland, Lithuania and the Ukraine to join the 7,200 Belarusian soldiers who were supposed to participate in the exercise.
