Putin handles corruption LIKE A BOSS

Putin handles corruption LIKE A BOSS

The war against Putin stems from the sudden inability for crooks to plunder Russia's resources as well as get away with stealing budget funds - and - God forbid - have to pay taxes via their independent companies (often, contracted to government projects!) The man mentioned in the first clip, Mr. Belalov, ran away and was granted asylum in the UK. He cited political reasons for his inability to stay in Russia, when he was simply siphoning money from the government. There are many outtakes like these - I picked only a couple for this compilation.

Testing Tolerance: Swedes are saying ‘enough’, to immigrants, no-go  zones, sharia law & gang rapes

Testing Tolerance: Swedes are saying ‘enough’, to immigrants, no-go zones, sharia law & gang rapes

At the height of the immigrant influx into Europe in 2014 and 2015, Sweden with a population of 6.7 million, accepted 244,178 asylum seekers – by far, the highest rate per capita in the EU. Since then the rate of violent crime has soared, particularly sexual assault cases. Watch more films about Immigration: https://rtd.rt.com/tags/immigration/ The Swedish police have outlined over 50 areas with high immigrant populations that are “marred by crime, social unrest and insecurity.” Of these, 23 have been classified as “especially vulnerable,” or what migration critics call “no-go zones,” where even the police have trouble operating. Besides the high incidence of gang violence and drug trafficking, residents complain these areas are being virtually colonised by immigrants whose cultures clash with Swedish values. Many Swedes and older immigrants alike have begun to say that Sweden doesn’t feel like Sweden anymore. Critics of the government’s liberal immigration policies complain the police are afraid to intervene for fear of being accused of racial profiling, while the country’s politically correct press generally brands anyone raising concerns about immigrants as racist. But now, some people fed up with what they see as the authorities’ inaction have taken matters into their own hands. They have begun to organise groups calling themselves names like ‘The Soldiers of Odin’ to patrol the country’s most blighted neighbourhoods. They are sometimes called vigilantes or racists, but the groups say they want the freedom to live in their own country as it was before the migrant crisis began.

EU praises Greece exit from bailout as end of crisis

EU praises Greece exit from bailout as end of crisis

The European economic and financial affairs commissioner hails the Greek government’s exit from eight years of international bailout programs. Pierre Moskovichi, however, warned, realities on the ground remain tough. But, Moscovici said Greece exhausted all efforts to re-vitalize its economy. He added, Athens’ economic reforms addressed the country’s challenges. Greece has concluded the final audit of its third multi-million euro bailout package from the European Union. This, as Greece has completed the Euro-zone’s three-year bailout program. The government has pledged to pump the new money into the Greek’s economy, giving it a boost to return to full market financing. The Greek economic crisis that broke out in 2010 was its worst since World War Two.

Why is Germany against new US sanctions on Russia ? | REAL MATTERS

Why is Germany against new US sanctions on Russia ? | REAL MATTERS

Russian Sanctions, EU, Nord Stream, Germany and the U.S Explained ► Subscribe to REAL MATTERS : http://bit.ly/2uQHX6B ► Follow me on Instagram : http://bit.ly/2uQIq8R ★ Help us, Get a SHIRT ► https://shop.spreadshirt.com/realmatters The United States has recently issued a new set of sanctions against Russia. Which have received harsh criticism, including Russia dismissing large portion of the United States’ diplomatic mission in the Country. Germany has also heavily criticised the bill, saying that the EU should take steps to protect its own interests. Germany’s outspoken condemnation of the sanctions is a drastic change from its past support for US’ Russia Policy. In todays report we look deeper into the new set of sanctions and understand why Germany is so critical. it has to do with the Nord Stream gas Pipeline. Germany’s economics minister on July 31 urged the European Union to fight back against new sanctions by the United States that could penalise Western companies doing business with Russia. The provisions passed by congress would give the Trump administration the option of imposing sanctions on companies helping develop Russian export pipelines, such as the Nord Stream 2 pipeline carrying natural gas to Europe, in which German companies are involved. Nord Stream 2 is important for Germany. But it has been fiercely criticised by central and eastern Europeans. Donald Tusk, the president of the European Council and a former Polish prime minister, is a vocal critic of the pipeline, urging strict regulation of a project he has said would strengthen Moscow. Writing for CEPA, Edward Lucas said “ Sadly, the European Commission has been unable to find a legal means of stopping Nord Stream 2. Just as sadly, the German government has put business relations with Russia ahead of its allies’ interests.” German Economics Minister Brigitte Zypries said in an interview published by on July 31 that "We consider this as being against international law, plain and simple," "The Americans can’t punish German companies because they have business interests in another country,” Zypries said. "Of course, we don't want a trade war. But it is important the European Commission now looks into countermeasures." Zypries said Berlin had repeatedly asked Washington not to include the provisions affecting European companies in a broader bill targeting Russia with sanctions over its alleged interference in the U.S. presidential election, aggression in Ukraine, and other matters. "Unfortunately, that is exactly what they are doing. That means that it is right that the European Commission now considers countermeasures," she said. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker warned last week that "if our concerns are not taken into account sufficiently, we stand ready to act appropriately within a matter of days" of the provisions taking effect. The United States has for years opposed the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, saying it will only increase European dependence on Russia for natural gas when Western allies should be diversifying their energy sources away from Russia. But the sanctions bill represents the first time Washington has taken concrete action in its opposition to the pipeline that could lead to punitive measures against European companies. The new sanctions are also coupled with provisions encouraging European countries to purchase liquefied natural gas from the United States as an alternative to relying on Russian gas.

How Putin raised the national birth rate

How Putin raised the national birth rate

The Mothers’ Assistance Programme has been active in Russia since 2007 and can be accessed by any family that has two or more children to raise. Either mother or father can apply, and in the case of the child being adopted, or from another marriage – the applicant parent does not need to be a Russian citizen. The Programme can be utilized toward almost any cost to do with raising children; from funding toward mortgages, rental costs, the child’s education to any level (up to the age of 23), and medical costs. After the collapse of the USSR, Russia experienced one of the worst demographic crises in the developed world – death rates outstripped birth rates in their millions, and the only balancing factor was labour migration from former Soviet republics. Almost 5 million multi-child families are utilising the Programme, with over 90% of payouts going toward housing.

Is it time to scrap

Is it time to scrap "Eastern Europe"? | The Economist

Animated infographic that illustrates the absurdities often applied when the term "Eastern Europe" is used. Which countries are in Eastern Europe? Does Eastern Europe as we knew it exist? Has the extent of Eastern Europe changed since the Cold War? Europe's divisions are indeed grave. But counting the ex-communist countries as a single category is outdated and damaging Subscribe NOW to The Economist: http://econ.st/1Fsu2Vj Eastern Europe is a concept dating from the Cold War. Geographically it didn't make much sense even then. Finland and Greece are not really Western, and Prague is west of Vienna. Nowadays the term doesn't make sense politically or economically either. Even cold war Eastern Europe wasn't a monolith. It included Mavericks like Romania and rebels like Yugoslavia and Albania. Today the whole idea of Eastern Europe is out of date and a bad brand with connotations of poverty , marginalization, and weirdness. Most of the ex-communist countries in Eastern Europe are anything but. Ten of them are in the EU or more or less in the waiting-room. The richest ones are catching up the poorest of the old Western Member States. Nor of the countries of the former Eastern Europe marginal. All the newish EU members, plus Albania and Croatia, are in NATO too. Eight are in Schengen. Three members of the Euro. Only one country in Europe meets both the euro zone's rules on debt and deficit and NATO's target on defence expenditure; that's Estonia, which wasn't even on the map 21 years ago. Instead of Eastern Europe we need some new categories. I like Danube Europe based on that rivers catchment area. It shares a lot of history, culture, climate, food and architecture. Then there's Roma Europe, the countries that are home to most of the continent’s most put upon ethnic minority. Then there's “scared of Russia Europe” which is the countries that still regard the Kremlin as just possibly a military threat or at least some kind of security problem. And there are those that just see the commercial opportunities. But the biggest division of all is between the countries where state and private debt makes the government scared of the financial markets, and those that still have plenty of freedom of action. The big question for the rest of 2012 is whether that grouping, call it solvent Europe, comes out on top or goes down in the chaos to the south and west. As for Eastern Europe put it in the dustbin of history, better late than never.

Putin:

Putin: "I am not your friend, I am the President of Russia"

When German journalists asked the very simplistic question on whether Putin considered himself a friend or a foe to the West- he answered neither. There is the simple concept of national interests, which may or may not be at odds with other countries. Diplomacy is the art of being able to reconcile your national interests, alongside those of other States, compromising on certain aspects along the way. However, the opposing worldview has shown not to allow for mutual respect, nor for cooperation. Through a number of covert means, they ask for nothing less than for Russia to no longer ascertain its national interests.
