The world is a little bit safer today after the agreement among former foes on the most complex part of the Cold War legacy. The U.S. Senate passed the New START treaty by a vote of 71 to 26 on Wednesday, while the Russian parliament may give its approval to the pact soon. Moscow becomes […]


После «неудачного» взрыва у памятника Ленину в самопровозглашенной республике начались массовые аресты. Глава самопровозглашенной республики Александр Захарченко издал указ об ужесточении комендантского часа. Теперь все хождения и поездки с 23-00 до 5 утра запрещены всем, за исключением специального транспорта, снабженного не менее специальными пропусками….

  La comunità di connazionali, sorta nel XIX secolo (tra il 1830 ed il 1870) nella regione orientale della Crimea nei pressi della città di Kerch, fu deportata nel gennaio 1942. Allora si contavano 5-6 mila italiani, in maggioranza gente dedita all’agricoltura ed all’artigianato, di origine pugliese della zona di Trani e Bisceglie. Crimea1
Oggi a Kerch, città famosa per lo stretto – accesso del mare di Azov dal mar Nero – abitano 500 persone, discendenti di quanti sono tornati dal Kazakhstan, dalla Russia e dall’Uzbekistan. Il presidente Putin ha inserito gli italiani di Crimea con un decreto, pubblicato il 13 settembre 2015, tra i popoli deportati da Stalin da riabilitare. In precedenza né il governo sovietico né quello ucraino avevano agito in tal senso.
I liguri, generalmente commercianti o persone di mare, abitavano nella vicina Feodosia, sempre in Crimea, oppure a Mariupol, secondo porto dell’Ucraina – ancora oggi cruciale per l’esportazione di grano e di prodotti metallurgici -, oppure ad Odessa, dove tra il XIX – ed il XX secolo era stato costituito un liceo italiano.
A Taganrog, un centinaio di chilometri ad est di Mariupol, sempre sul mare di Azov visse Giuseppe Garibaldi tra il 1831 ed il 1833. Qui l’eroe dei due mondi si avvicinò alle idee mazziniane della “Giovane Italia”, propagandate dagli esuli. Sempre a Taganrog, davanti alla passeggiata a mare, è stata eretta l’unica statua dedicata a Garibaldi in territorio ex sovietico.
In tutta questa area, dopo l’unità di Italia, vennero aperti un Regio Consolato ad Odessa e vari vice-consolati a dimostrazione dell’importate presenza di connazionali. Questo periodo si chiuse con la Rivoluzione d’ottobre ed le successive repressioni staliniane.

Масштаб громыхнувшего давеча на весь мир допингового скандала, безусловно, страшнейшего за всю нашу историю, стал, насколько знаю, откровением для многих российских спортивных чиновников. А для меня — нет….
А потому, прежде чем возмущаться «их» двойными стандартами, надо понять: мы-то такие же, но чтобы диктовать свои условия, в том числе и в спорте, надо сначала стать США — или как минимум Китаем. Иначе — никак.

…Что же до наших спортивных чиновников, то им, по-моему, вся эта ситуация только на пользу пойдёт, как ни парадоксально.

Poland has signed a deal to build the first gas pipeline connecting the Baltic states to the EU energy market. The pipeline will integrate EU and Baltic energy markets and reduce dependence on Russian gas.

The 558 million euro ($636 million) gas pipeline will end the energy isolation of the Baltic countries by connecting the gas markets of Poland and Lithuania, the European Commission said

“Today we have done much more than bringing the energy isolation of the Baltic States to an end. We have brought the region further together,” European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said. “We are launching a project that will allow us to overcome historic limitations, including the direction of gas supplies from East to West,” PM Kopacz told a press conference.

The 534-kilometer (332-mile) Gas Interconnector Poland-Lithuania (GIPL) will be backed by a 305 million euro investment from the European Commission, which has set out the goal of creating an integrated European gas market and ensuring members have multiple supplies of energy. Once the GIPL is built, it will connect the Lithuanian, Estonian and Latvian gas network with the EU. The pipeline is scheduled to be completed by December 2019.

Earlier this week, PM Ewa Kopacz opened a liquefied natural gas terminal at the Baltic port of Świnoujście, northern Poland, which is yet another move expected to improve the energy independence of the country. The first shipment of LNG is expected to arrive from Qatar in December

The crash of flight MH17 on 17 July 2014 was caused by the detonation of a 9N314M-type warhead launched from the eastern part of Ukraine using a Buk missile system. So says the investigation report published by the Dutch Safety Board today. Moreover, it is clear that Ukraine already had sufficient reason to close the airspace over the eastern part of Ukraine as a precaution before 17 July 2014. None of the parties involved recognised the risk posed to overflying civil aircraft by the armed conflict in the eastern part of Ukraine.

Full Report

Aleksander Lukashenko has won a fifth term as president of Belarus with a victory that could ease relations with the West and raise questions about his ties to Vladimir Putin’s Russia.
Lukashenko won 83.5% of the vote, the Central election commission said, 3.5% more than in the 2010 elections. Turnout was 86.75%, the commission added.
No veteran opposition leaders stood as they were not allowed to register. They said that the vote would not be free or fair. Dozens of opposition supporters held a protest march in the capital Minsk after the polls closed.
Relations with Moscow have shown signs of strain. In September, Vladimir Putin approved a plan to build an airbase in Belarus, but Lukashenko said his country had no need for such a base.
The EU will lift its sanctions on Belarus, including those on Lukashenko, for four months after the vote, diplomatic sources reported last week.
