Putin ready to discuss INF Treaty issues with John Bolton




The United States is going to pull out from the Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles (INF).The news did not come as a surprise as Trump's national security adviser John Bolton had earlier insisted on such a move. Bolton also hampers the talks on the extension of the Strategic Offensive Arms Treaty (START-3).In Russia, the emergence of this information is associated with Bolton's upcoming visit to Moscow on October 22-23. According to the Kremlin, Putin is ready for the meeting. Many US politicians do not share Bolton's point of view, and military experts are confident that Russia and the USA can still settle the issue.Retired Major General Vladimir Dvorkin believes that the USA is unlikely to exit the START-3. "This agreement is beneficial for the Americans because it allows them to control Russia's nuclear triad. A recent nuclear report says that the US is ready to discuss the extension of the treaty until 2026. Trump's statement comes as another act of blackmail on the part of the United States to force Russia to recognise some of its actions related to ground tests of cruise missiles with a range of over 500 km."Dvorkin, who earlier headed the Research Institute of the Russian Ministry of Defence that studies problems of nuclear deterrence, believes that USA's claims to the Russian Federation regarding the INF Treaty "are technical in nature." According to the expert, the Americans believe that Russia has conducted tests on the launchers that look like the launchers of the Iskander complex. The Americans also believe that Russia has a missile in service that violates the INF Treaty.

Russia to use all of her might to defend Belarus if need be




Russia's Ambassador to Belarus, Mikhail Babich, said that Moscow would treat any military intervention in the affairs of Belarus as an attack on Russia.The statement from Babich came as a reaction to an announcement from US officials to deploy an army base in Poland. The ambassador believes that this is "a disturbing factor that must not be neglected."He also noted that Russia and Belarus reached absolute mutual understanding on these issues. "We have a regional grouping of troops and forces, we also have all the components that are necessary both for defence and for retaliatory attack."President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko commented on the plans of US authorities to deploy an army base in Poland by saying that they are "a mirror reflection of the border with Kaliningrad.""I won't say that they like us very much - neither you nor us, Russia and Belarus," added Lukashenko.Lukashenko said that the citizens of the two countries have no one else to count on except for each other, and assured that Russia can always rely on Belarus.

Russian military men were paid before Russia reunited with Crimea




Prior to the operation to annex the Crimea, the Russian military on the peninsula had received a cash allowance.The financial of the Russian Defence Ministry had made such a decision over the fear of the blockage of financial assets on the accounts of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Ukrainian banks, Deputy Defence Minister Tatyana Shevtsova said.According to her, since the end of February, military financiers had been closely watching the development of the situation in the Crimea and, together with large Russian banks, they had been looking for ways that would save budget money."Already in early March, Russian servicemen in the Crimea received an early monetary allowance, and a couple of weeks later all the Russian budget money in cash was collected at military pay offices and subsequently transferred to the treasury under enhanced security," the deputy minister said.The financial service organised cash support for the Black Sea Fleet through field institutions of the Bank of Russia and interrupted the financing of the Black Sea Fleet through a foreign bank. The moves ensured the timely financial support for military units stationed in the Crimea and Sevastopol, Shevtsova concluded.

Time for Brazil to wake up




Time for Brazil to wake up No people is stupid. Everyone deserves the government they get. Next week, the Brazilian people have a choice between sensationalism and common sense. Next Sunday, the Brazilian people will not choose between the government programmes of the leader of PSL (Social Liberal Party, right) and PT (Workers' Party, center-left). They will choose between the sensationalist candidate, Jair Bolsonaro, an ex-army captain who was sentenced to a prison term in the past, labeled by some as "The Myth" and Fernando Haddad, an academic with a degree in law, a master's in economics and a doctorate in philosophy.

Women look at each other with men's eyes




The theory that men first assess women based on their figure has been repeatedly confirmed. However, it turns out that women look at each other the same way. A group of psychologists from the University of Nebraska (Lincoln, USA) led by Sarah Gervais concluded that women assess the appearance of other women from the point of view of men. Scientists have long been interested in the so-called phenomenon of "objectifying gaze." They assume that both men and women when first looking at each other perform some sort of mental "analysis" that captures the degree of sexual attractiveness of a new acquaintance and determines whether the person is suitable for them as a potential partner. 36 men and 29 women were involved in the study. They were divided into two groups, each group had members of both sexes. They were showed pictures of ten different women. The pictures were manipulated to obtain three images of varying degrees of attractiveness.

US official lashes Europe for working on Nord Stream 2




An American diplomat cracked down on European countries that approve the construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline.Wess Mitchell, US Undersecretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, expressed his dissatisfaction with the decisions of several European partners to support the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.According to Mitchell, Western European states should not make themselves even more dependent on Russia's natural resources, because the US protects them from it. They should not buy fuel from Iran either, because Iran develops ballistic missiles that pose a threat to Europe, he added. It is unacceptable for USA's allies in Central Europe to support projects like Nord Stream 2, Mitchell concluded. Alexander Novak, Russian Minister for Energy, said earlier that the Nord Stream 2 project would be implemented, despite possible US sanctions against the companies that take part in the project. Nord Stream 2 is a gas pipeline project from Russia to Germany along the bottom of the Baltic Sea. The system is over 1,200 km long and comes as an additional section to Nord Stream 1. The project, directly or indirectly, affects the interests of a wide range of countries and enterprises.
