Patriarch Kirill called the accusations of “militarist speeches” nonsense

The head of the Russian Orthodox Church called on the Russian military to carry out their duty for the country's independence from “powerful external forces” at an important historical moment. He called the accusations of militarism in his appeals nonsense

Patriarch Kirill

Russia is going through an important historical moment these days, the army and navy of the country need prayers and help, since the sovereignty of the state depends on their actions, Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia said after the liturgy in the main church Armed Forces in Kubinka near Moscow. The broadcast was conducted by the TV channel "Spas" on VKontakte.

“Remember, brethren, that how you carry out your military duty <…> to what extent, I am not even afraid of these words, you are able to lay down your soul for your friends according to the commandment of God, the freedom, independence, independence of our Fatherland will depend <…> even from the most powerful forces that practically rule the world today,— said the head of the Russian Orthodox Church.

At the same time, the patriarch denied accusations of the militaristic nature of his appeals. «My words— this is not what our opponents would like to characterize as another militaristic speech of the patriarch, all this is nonsense, — he emphasized.

According to Patriarch Kirill, Russia does not intend to seize or occupy any state and does not wish harm to anyone.

At the end of April, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church was accused of supporting the Russian military operation in Ukraine in the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry. The head of the department, Gabrielius Landsbergis, said that Vilnius had proposed to the European Union that Patriarch Kirill be included in the next sanation list, noting that such a scenario is now being discussed. “This man, in my opinion, is not engaged in pastoral care, but destroys souls, if you try to find some kind of spiritual term to describe his statements,” — the minister explained.

In response, the ROC called Lithuania's initiative “nonsense, a rejection of common sense.” The task of the Foreign Ministry is to preserve the channels of communication, and not to destroy them, said the head of the synodal department for relations between the Church, society and the media, Vladimir Leygoda. In his opinion, the introduction of restrictive measures against religious leaders — this is “already some kind of anti-diplomacy.”

Then, at the end of April, the issue of sanctions against the head of the Russian Orthodox Church was raised in the Verkhovna Rada, whose deputies submitted a draft resolution to the parliament. As explained in the Rada, Patriarch Kirill “repeatedly publicly supported” actions of Russian troops in Ukraine.

The White House in early May commented on the possibility of introducing restrictive measures against the patriarch, saying that “no one is immune from our sanctions.” The US administration added that they are studying options for new measures.

The Pope, in an interview in the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, spoke about a conversation with Patriarch Kirill, which took place in mid-March. For half of the conversation, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church read to him the reasons for the operation in Ukraine, the pontiff said. Francis added that he listened to the patriarch, but urged him to look for ways out of the crisis and cessation of hostilities. “Brother, we are not state clerics, we must speak not in the language of politics, but in the language of Jesus,” — the newspaper quoted the head of the Catholic Church.

The Moscow Patriarchate then considered that the Pope had chosen an “incorrect tone” in his interview.

Medvedev saw the “ghost of communism” in the idea of ​​EU members to share gas

El País reported on the EU's idea to oblige wealthy states to share gas with the most affected member countries. Medvedev believes that if the EU introduces such a procedure, then “there is not far from food cards”

Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev said that the “ghost of communism” has again entered Europe after the European Commission, according to El País, decided to offer EU members to share gas in the event of a cessation of fuel supplies from Russia. He wrote about this in his Telegram channel.

“Fat Europeans, provided with gas from various sources, are going to be forced to share with the poor, but proud, who do not want to pay Russia in rubles for our fuel. Well, well done, worthy heirs of the two Charles— Marx and Kautsky, — said Medvedev (Kautsky, Marxist theorist, editor of the fourth volume of Capital).

He admitted that the countries — EU members can simultaneously introduce energy rationing, and said that after that “food cards are not far away.”

The EU requirement to share its gas with the most affected countries can be introduced if Russia will decide to stop supplying gas to Europe. This requirement may become one of the points of the plan of the European Commission, which is going to be approved on May 18, the Spanish newspaper wrote. According to this idea, those countries that have alternative suppliers will have to share.

The European authorities will also require energy rationing, which will start with the industrial sector, so that companies in less affected countries do not have a competitive advantage over those in more affected states, El País clarifies.

To ensure sufficient supply of gas to households and social services of all EU countries, Brussels, according to the newspaper, is going to use the gas supply regulation in force since 2017.

He continued that such a war cannot be allowed, therefore, it is necessary to win by “conventional armed means”, and called for the transfer of the defense industry and related sectors of the economy “on a war footing”

Dmitry Rogozin

In the event of a nuclear war, Russia will destroy the NATO countries in half an hour, said the director general of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin on Telegram. At the same time, he stressed that Russia should not allow such a war, because its consequences will affect the state of the Earth. “Therefore, we will have to defeat this economically and militarily more powerful enemy by conventional armed means,” — wrote Rogozin.

Among the conditions for “victory” he called “total solidarity” countries with an army, the mobilization of the economy, the transfer of the military-industrial complex and related industrial sectors of Russia “on a war footing”. “And this must be done immediately and quickly,” — added the head of Roskosmos.

“We are not fighting the Nazis in Ukraine. We liberate Ukraine from NATO occupation and push the worst enemy away from our western borders,— wrote the head of Roskosmos in another post.

On April 25, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Moscow was adhering to a “principled position”; on the inadmissibility of nuclear war, however, noted that the risks of its implementation are very significant. “The risks are very, very significant, I really don’t want these risks to be artificially inflated, and there are many who want to. The danger is serious, it is real, it cannot be underestimated, — he said.

US Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan called Lavrov's statements “nuclear blackmail”. The Pentagon then called the words about the possibility of using nuclear weapons dangerous and not useful. The White House urged to reduce the number of statements on the topic of the start of a nuclear war to reduce the heat.

The President of Germany spoke about a “nightmare” instead of a dream of a “European home”

Germans remember the horrors of World War II and the genocide, Steinmeier said. After 1945, there was hope in Europe that politicians would not allow a recurrence of hostilities, but now that dream has failed, the German president said media/img/9/24/756520064383249.jpg” alt=”The President of Germany announced a “nightmare” instead of a dream of a “European home”” />

Frank-Walter Steinmeier

The Russian military operation has become a turning point of the era that threatens the existence of Ukraine, European society is amazed by what is happening, said German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier in his speech at the congress of the Association of German Trade Unions (DGB). The words of the German President are transmitted by his press service.

Since the end of World War II, May 8 has been a day of gratitude to the allies from the West and East for the victory over Nazism, the date has also become a day of remembrance and edification, Steinmeier said, pointing out that the people of Germany remember the “merciless war of annihilation waged by the Germans in Eastern Europe". He assured that Germany honors the memory of the sufferings of the peoples of the Soviet Union and the victims of persecution, hatred and violence.

With regard to the post-war reconstruction of Europe, the German president continued, May 8 was also a day of hope, since the survivors of the war believed that no one would resort to hostilities to resolve political issues. He recalled the Helsinki Final Act of 1975, with the signing of which the USSR, the USA and all European countries confirmed the inviolability of borders on the continent.

“Generations of politicians worked to ensure that“ never again ” also meant “never again war in Europe”. Mikhail Gorbachev gave us a vision on the way to a common European home. But today, May 8, the dream of a common European home has failed: a nightmare has come in its place. It's May 8— day of the war»,— said Steinmeier.

About a month ago, in mid-April, Steinmeier called the normalization of relations with Russia under President Vladimir Putin an impossible scenario. “In my opinion, one thing is clear: under Putin there can be no return to normal life with Russia,” — said the German president. He added that “war crimes in Ukraine” seen by people around the world, they must be investigated, and those responsible must be punished.

May 8 is Anti-War Day in Germany. “On May 8, 1945, World War II in Europe ended with the unconditional surrender of the German Wehrmacht and liberation from National Socialism. Surrender was a liberation that paved the way for a new beginning in Germany and Europe. cites the Federal Agency for Civic Education (Politische Bildung) a certificate from the Hessian State Center for Political Education.

“Close ties” the German president with Russia became the reason for the refusal of the Ukrainian authorities to visit Kyiv, Bild sources said in mid-April. “He is not welcome in Kyiv now”, — an unnamed Ukrainian diplomat told the newspaper. Later, these data were confirmed by the President of Germany, indicating that he was ready for a trip to the Ukrainian capital. “But, apparently, and I must admit this, they didn’t want this in Kyiv,” — he concluded.

The refusal of the German president to visit Kyiv caused a sharp reaction in Berlin. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz called the actions of the Ukrainian authorities “irritating”, calling for the president of the republic to be received. Scholz later stressed that the issue had become a problem and that he had no intention of visiting the Ukrainian capital until Steinmeier was there. Berlin provides Kyiv with military and financial support, and therefore “you can’t say: the president cannot come,” Scholz is sure.

In early May, Steinmeier spoke by phone with Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, as a result of which the parties eliminated “annoying factors,” said the press service of the German politician. “The two presidents agreed to remain in close contact,” — It was said in the message.

Bloomberg learned that EU ambassadors did not agree on a package of sanctions against Russia

Bloomberg: EU ambassadors did not agree on the sixth package of sanctions against Russia because of Hungary The reason was the reluctance of Hungary to support the ban on Russian oil imports, agency sources say. Brussels proposed to refuse supplies by the end of 2022, but the oil embargo must be agreed upon by all EU countries /756520169869666.jpg” alt=”Bloomberg learned that the EU ambassadors did not agree on a package of sanctions against Russia” />

EU permanent representatives met on May 8 to discuss new sanctions against Russia, but did not reach an agreement, Bloomberg reported, citing sources familiar with the meeting. Negotiations will resume in the coming days.

The European Union is developing the sixth package of sanctions related to the conflict in Ukraine. The head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said that it is planned to include the refusal of Russian oil by the end of 2022, as well as the disconnection of a number of banks (including Sberbank) from SWIFT. In addition, Bloomberg and Reuters reported that Brussels is proposing to ban European courts and companies from providing services related to the transportation of Russian oil to third countries.

In order for the package to be adopted, all 27 EU countries must agree on it, but, according to Bloomberg, the meeting participants failed to get Hungary's consent to a ban on Russian oil imports. In addition, Greece and Cyprus have not yet agreed to restrictions on oil transportation, the agency's interlocutors say.

Hungary has previously stated that it will not support the abandonment of Russian oil. On May 6, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said that Budapest would not allow the EU to impose an embargo on Russian oil, so as not to “destroy the results of the many years of efforts of the Hungarian people.” EU members failed to agree on sanctions. On May 4, Reuters reported that at one of the meetings, in addition to Hungary, concerns about such restrictions were expressed by Bulgaria, Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Bloomberg wrote about the doubts of Greece, Malta and Cyprus regarding the transportation ban on the same day.

According to the agency, the EU, as a compromise, proposed extending the deadline for refusing Russian oil until the end of 2024 for Hungary and Slovakia and until June of the same year for the Czech Republic.

“These actions serve as a warning to private Russian companies about that those who support Putin's war machine risk paying a heavy price,” — stated in the department.

Western countries began to impose sanctions against Russian officials and companies, as well as the defense and shipping sectors from the end of February. The top Russian leadership fell under them, including President Vladimir Putin, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov. At the end of April, the US Treasury imposed visa restrictions on 635 Russians, accusing them of violating human rights and involvement in violating the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

Earlier, the EU and the UK imposed sanctions on the Russian Sovcomflot, as a result the company was unable to redeem the coupon on dollar Eurobonds-2028 in the amount of $8.3 million: the paying agent refused to accept the payment. The company stressed that they treat loans responsibly and confirmed their readiness to fulfill obligations under bonds. On May 6, the press secretary of Sovcomflot Anna Dubik told RBC that the company decided to sell part of the age-appropriate tonnage vessels, which, according to her calculations, are no longer appropriate to operate.

The US extended sectoral sanctions on the Russian consulting sector. On April 15, President Joe Biden signed an executive order allowing the authorities to designate sectors of the Russian economy that could be sanctioned. Initially, these industries included the technology and defense sectors, but now the Ministry of Finance has extended the decree to accounting, trust services and consulting.

In addition, the Ministry of Finance demanded that American companies and individuals stop providing accounting, trust and consulting services from July 7, according to the agency's general license. Under another license, audit work with Russia and the provision of credit ratings to it should cease on August 20.

“Wealthy Russians relied on American specialists to create shell companies, transfer capital and resources to alternative jurisdictions and hiding assets from authorities around the world. Also, Russian companies, in particular state-owned and state-subsidized enterprises, rely on these services to manage and expand their business, generating income for the Russian economy,— explained in the message of the department.

Earlier, the provision of services by credit rating agencies to Russian clients was banned by the European Union. The US is home to the Big Three Agencies — Moody's, S&P and Fitch. All of them, after the outbreak of hostilities in Ukraine, suspended their activities in Russia.

G7 countries pledged to abandon Russian oil

Germany, France, Italy and other G7 countries will refuse oil from Russia, the leaders said in a joint statement. They made it after an online meeting with Zelensky. Previously, Berlin called such a scenario a “heavy burden” G7 countries pledged to abandon Russian oil” />

All G7 countries (G7: Germany, France, Great Britain, Italy, Canada, Japan and the United States) have agreed to phase out Russian oil imports or to follow the United States in an embargo to reduce Russian budget revenues, the White House said.

&laquo “This will hit the main artery of Putin's economy hard and deprive him of the profits” needed to finance the military operation, the report said.

The presidential administration has assured that these measures will be taken in accordance with the requirements of the law and procedures of each partner.

The White House released a statement from the leaders of the G7, which says that the process of phasing out Russian oil will be carried out “in a timely and orderly manner.” , with a guarantee of supply from alternative exporters at affordable prices. This, according to the resolution, is planned to be achieved, among other things, by reducing dependence on fossil fuels and switching to environmentally friendly energy.

The United States announced this decision after a conversation between US President Joe Biden and the leaders of the G7 countries with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The White House emphasized that during the conversation, the parties discussed “strengthening Ukraine's position on the battlefield and at the negotiating table,” stating that the consequences of sanctions “will nullify Russia's economic achievements over the past 15 years.”

The United States imposed an embargo on oil and gas supplies from Russia in early March, the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, then said that it would be more difficult for European countries to decide on a similar step because of the larger share of Russian imports. “Saying 'I won't do what I don't already'” it doesn't matter much, — noted the diplomat.

The Japanese authorities noted that oil is a hard-to-replace resource and there will be no immediate cessation of supplies from Russia.

The European Union introduced five packages of restrictive measures against Russia, while they did not have an oil embargo, but restrictions on the supply of Russian coal were adopted. European countries cannot yet reach a consensus on the issue of a ban on the purchase of Russian oil— in particular, Hungary opposes it.

“We will not allow this, because we cannot allow anyone to destroy the results of many years of efforts of the Hungarian people, our selfless work,”— said Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjártó. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban compared plans for an oil embargo to “an atomic bomb that they want to drop” on the Hungarian economy. According to him, it takes “years” to rebuild the Hungarian energy sector.

G7 countries decided to prevent Russian victory in Ukraine

The G7 called Zelensky's participation in the online meeting an honor, confirming their support for Kyiv. The countries agreed not to let Russia win the operation in Ukraine. Volodin saw in these words recognition of Moscow's success

Volodymyr Zelensky

The G7 countries (G7: US, Germany, France, UK, Italy, Canada and Japan) declared their intention to provide Ukraine with a prosperous future and their determination to prevent a Russian victory in Ukraine. The text of the resolution was published by the White House.

“President Putin must not win his war against Ukraine. We must do this for the sake of the memory of all those who fought for freedom during the Second World War, continue to fight for it today, for the people of Ukraine, Europe and the world community,— says the document.

Country Leaders— G7 members were honored to participate in the online meeting of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who was assured of full solidarity and support. Ukraine, the G7 is sure, is fighting for a “peaceful, prosperous and democratic future within its internationally recognized borders, with the rights and freedoms that many of us enjoy today.”

State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said in response that the determination “not to allow victory” Western countries “recognized successes” Moscow's actions. “Russia ruined their plans to expand NATO to the East”, — he believes, linking this with a negative response to Russia's proposals for a security guarantee alliance.

After the start of the Russian military operation on February 24, Western countries began to provide economic, political and military support to Ukraine: Kyiv is supplied with weapons, Zelensky regularly appeals to Western governments with a request to increase the volume of supplies. US President Joe Biden is expected to sign the Lend-Lease Act on May 9, which will allow Washington to speed up arms deliveries to Kyiv, bypassing bureaucratic obstacles.

Medvedev asked if there was a proper “denazification” in Western Europe

“Pygmies” in Eastern Europe “dance to the tune” of Western European countries that do not want to notice the “revival of Nazism,” Medvedev said. He pointed out that in the Czech Republic they deprived Konev of honorary status, but left him with Hitler .jpg” alt=”Medvedev asked if Western Europe had proper “denazification”” />

Dmitry Medvedev

The decision of the Prague authorities to deprive Soviet Marshal Ivan Konev of the title of honorary citizen by May 9, despite the fact that Adolf Hitler still has this status in the Czech city of Lanškroun, raises doubts about the proper conduct of denazification, said Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev.

“The vile and cowardly hypocrisy of Europeans does not want to settle accounts with the demons of the Nazi past. Hence the question: after 1945, did Western Europe, to whose tune Eastern European pygmies are now dancing, pass real denazification? he asked.

Medvedev called the decision of the Prague authorities “another Russophobic gift to the falsifiers of history”, recalling that the Prague monument to the commander was removed to storage in 2020 for subsequent transfer to the museum. In addition to the Czech Republic, he continued, Hitler retained an honorary status in the Polish cities of Szczecin and Wroclaw, and the authorities in these regions repeatedly called the situation “a reflection of that time”; without legal mechanisms for deprivation of status.

“Watch out for the sickening dexterity of thought for a normal person: the memory of the Soviet marshal— this is communist propaganda, and it must be destroyed, and the refusal to fight against the glorification of the Nazis— it's just “in the name of history,” — wrote Medvedev.

Russia does not intend to “condone screaming silence, disgusting blindness,” not noticing ” the revival of neo-Nazism in Ukraine,” wrote the Deputy Chairman of the Security Council. Medvedev believes that there is a Russophobia in Europe, and its roots are that former Nazi officials and scientists have made careers in the US, Europe and NATO. He also pointed out that US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken did not mention the USSR in his congratulations on the anniversary of Europe Day (the day the hostilities in Europe ended during World War II).

We are talking about Blinken's appeal, which was published by the State Department a day earlier, on May 7. The Secretary of State wrote that the people of the United States have united “with the brave citizens of many other countries who fought courageously on all fronts in Europe,” now Washington mourns the “ruthless massacre of tens of millions of people in this war of conquest waged by a despot who sought to enslave his neighbors.” ;. The Secretary of State accused the Russian authorities of trying to “distort history” to justify actions in Ukraine.

The Russian Foreign Ministry has previously accused the Israeli authorities of supporting the “neo-Nazi regime”; in Ukraine, where, according to the statement, “anti-Semitism <…> bloomed in luxuriant colors. The ministry argued that there was evidence of Jewish collaboration with the Nazis, and that the president's Jewish heritage was no guarantee against “neo-Nazism rampant.” The head of the department, Sergei Lavrov, admitted that Hitler “also had Jewish blood.”

The Israeli Foreign Ministry emphasized that “Jews did not kill themselves during the Holocaust”, urging them not to accuse Jews of anti-Semitism. Minister Yair Lapid called on the Russian government to apologize to Jerusalem for crossing the red line. Israeli authorities later reported that President Vladimir Putin had apologized for Lavrov's remarks. The Kremlin commented on questions about this with the words “nothing to add.”
