Prosecutor General of Ukraine ruled out mitigation of punishment for Medvedchuk

< /p> Viktor Medvedchuk

The Prosecutor General of Ukraine Irina Venediktova ruled out mitigation of punishment for the former people's deputy from the Opposition Platform party; For Life» (OPLE) to Viktor Medvedchuk in the case of high treason. The Prosecutor General stated this on the air of the Ukraine-24 TV channel.

“As for the first case, there will be no mitigation. 15 years— it's only because we moved with this case before the new law went into effect. Now it would be a completely different measure of restraint, of course. Therefore, there will be no mitigation,»— she said.

Medvedchuk is charged under Art. 111 (high treason) and Art. 438 (violation of the laws and customs of war) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. He faces up to 15 years in prison with confiscation of property.

In May 2021, Medvedchuk was placed under house arrest. The investigation believes that the politician, being a deputy of the Verkhovna Rada, transmitted information about the whereabouts of the “secret military unit of the Armed Forces of Ukraine” party member Taras Kozak, who was then in Russia. In addition, according to investigators, Medvedchuk created an organization that collected data about Ukrainians and recruited them under the guise of helping with employment. The investigation also believes that Medvedchuk participated in a conspiracy against the country and wanted to undermine the energy security of Ukraine.

The Opposition Platform for Life Party, which was liquidated by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine in mid-May, considered the criminal proceedings against Medvedchuk “reprisal against political opponents.” Thus, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and his entourage are trying to establish “absolute dictatorship” in the country, the party pointed out.

On February 27, a few days after the start of the military operation in Ukraine, Anton Gerashchenko, adviser to the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine announced Medvedchuk's escape from house arrest. However, already on April 12, President Zelensky announced that the politician had been caught and published a photo with Medvedchuk in handcuffs. Later, the fact of detention was confirmed by the Security Service of Ukraine.

Zelensky offered the Russian authorities to exchange Medvedchuk for captured Ukrainian soldiers. Medvedchuk himself asked to do the same. The Kremlin responded by saying that the politician is not a Russian citizen and that he has nothing to do with the special operation. The Foreign Ministry said that the exchange of Medvedchuk for the Russian military “is not considered.”

Lukashenko put forward a condition for the transit of Ukrainian grain through Belarus

He told the UN Secretary General that it should be possible to load Belarusian goods in the Baltic ports, where grain will be transshipped. Guterres asked for a pause to discuss Lukashenka's proposals with interested countries

Alexander Lukashenko

President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko and UN Secretary General António Guterres discussed by phone the export of grain from Ukraine, according to the website of the head of state.

Lukashenko announced his readiness to supply grain to the Baltic ports of Germany, Poland, the Baltic countries and Russia through the territory Belarus, provided that Belarusian goods can also be loaded there.

The President added that Minsk is ready to allocate the necessary capacities for transshipment of grain by Belarusian rail transport. He invited Guterres to discuss this issue at a meeting with representatives of Belarus, Ukraine and other interested countries.

According to BelTA, Guterres asked for a pause of several days to discuss proposals with the authorities of these states and determine conditions for the supply of Ukrainian grain to international markets through Belarus.

After the start of the Russian military operation, according to the UN, about 4.5 million tons of grain accumulated in the ports of Ukraine (US authorities say about 20 million tons). Due to the suspension of supplies to the world market, many authorities have expressed concern about the possibility of a food crisis. The United States and Canada offered their assistance in transporting grain. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has warned that the conflict in Ukraine will increase the number of hungry people in the world to 218 million people.

At the end of May, Russian President Vladimir Putin assured his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in a telephone conversation of his readiness to facilitate the unhindered maritime transit of goods. According to Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, during the discussion, the presidents agreed that Turkey would help clear the Black Sea ports of mines in order to facilitate the transportation of grain.

Anadolu reported on June 2 that Russia, Ukraine and Turkey, with the support of the UN, have developed a plan to create a maritime “grain corridor”. At the upcoming meeting, the parties, according to the agency, will discuss the clearance of ports, as well as the route of ships with grain and their insurance.

Another possible solution to the problem— creation of a corridor through Belarus. The Wall Street Journal wrote in May that the US leadership could lift sanctions against Belarusian potash fertilizers if the Belarusian authorities agree to the transit of Ukrainian grain through their territory. In this case, the cargo from Ukraine will be delivered by rail to the Lithuanian port of Klaipeda.

Lukashenka believes that Belarus— the best direction for the export of grain from Ukraine.

Brussels and Washington imposed several packages of sanctions on Belarus after the 2020 presidential election. In the summer of 2021, the EU imposed sectoral sanctions against Minsk, banning the import of oil products and potash fertilizers from the country. Reasons— “growing human rights violations, brutal repressions against civil society, democratic opposition and journalists”, as well as the forced landing in Minsk of a Ryanair plane with journalist Roman Protasevich and his Russian girlfriend Sofya Sapega on board. In February of this year, the European Union decided to ban the import of fuel, wood, cement and steel from Belarus because of Minsk's support for the Russian military operation in Ukraine. In May, Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko announced that due to sanctions against Belarus, almost all exports from Belarus to the EU and North America are blocked, and the republic's losses amount to $16-18 billion a year.

The DPR and LPR declared independence in May 2014, after a referendum on self-determination was held. This happened after the change of power in Ukraine and the entry of Crimea into Russia.

Russia recognized the independence of the republics within the borders of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions on February 21, 2022, and concluded treaties of friendship and mutual assistance with them.

Lukashenko announced the beginning of a “serious conflict” between Zelensky and the Armed Forces of Ukraine

According to the President of Belarus, the military is unhappy with Zelensky's policy towards Poland, which is trying to “chop off the west” of Ukraine. Members of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will not be able to “fight further” with Russia and they themselves understand this, Lukashenko believes

Volodymyr Zelensky

A serious confrontation is starting between the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky and the military of this country, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko told reporters, BelTA reports.

“Already in Ukraine, according to my information, a serious confrontation and conflict is starting between Zelensky and the Ukrainian military . The military, like no one else, understands what a conflict with Russia is. Soldiers are dying there. They see what they are capable of and how much they can fight. And they can't fight anymore. You see, Russia has changed tactics»,— explained the head of the republic.

On the Ukrainian side, there will soon be no one to participate in hostilities, Lukashenka believes: the territorial defense forces will not be able to replace the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The Belarusian president explained the disagreements between the president and the army with the policy of the Ukrainian leadership towards Poland: “They saw that he (Zelensky. — RBC) gave the Poles [special legal] status. And this leads to what? Chop off the west [of Ukraine].” The Ukrainian military, “especially the Nazis, as some call them,” is against not only Russians and Belarusians on its territory, but also Poles, Lukashenka claims. “And they will cut off the heads of everyone who wants to dismember Ukraine today. <…> I said this a long time ago. Look, it comes true. Yazh then said: they will also turn to us and the Russians so that we can protect this Ukraine, — he is convinced.

At the end of May, Zelensky proposed granting Polish citizens a special legal status. The corresponding bill, by analogy with the Polish law on the support of citizens of Ukraine, should be developed by the Russian Foreign Ministry. Polish President Andrzej Duda in March signed amendments to the law on assistance to Ukrainians: refugees who arrived in the country due to hostilities will be able to stay there for 18 months from February 24, and then they will be granted a residence permit for three years. In addition, it will be easier for Ukrainians in Poland to obtain a PESEL identification number, which entitles them to use public services, get a job and do business in the republic on the same conditions as the Poles.

The Russian Foreign Ministry called Zelensky's initiative “an incident of sovereignty.” According to the representative of the department, Maria Zakharova, this proposal “legalizes the seizure” of Ukraine Poland.

Ukraine offered NATO to grant it “de facto” membership

According to Reznikov, Ukraine will already be part of the NATO strategy, since it also represents “part of the eastern flank of Europe”

Oleksiy Reznikov

NATO at the summit in June should consider granting Ukraine “de facto”, not “de jure” membership in the alliance, Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov said, according to Reuters.

At this summit, NATO plans to adopt a new strategy.

“I think that if we are talking about Ukraine's membership in NATO de facto, and not de jure, this might be a good idea for this strategy,” — Reznikov said at the GLOBSEC 2022 forum in Bratislava.

According to him, Ukraine will already be part of this strategy, since it “has part of the eastern flank of Europe, the eastern flank of the NATO countries, the eastern flank of the EU.” “I believe it will be a win-win for all countries,” — said the minister.

The possibility of Ukraine joining NATO has been discussed for at least the last decades. In April 2021, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called NATO membership the only way to end the conflict in Donbass, and in June Zelensky called on NATO to immediately resolve the issue of the country's membership in the alliance.

The Kremlin has repeatedly stated that the possible entry of Ukraine into the alliance threatens the security of Russia, and NATO itself was accused of “pumping” Ukraine with weapons and “invasion” on the territory of the country “with its own infrastructure”. After negotiations with the United States and NATO on security guarantees that did not produce a visible result, Russia on February 24 launched a special operation in Ukraine. Its goals were declared by President Vladimir Putin to be the “demilitarization” of and “denazification” neighboring state and protecting the inhabitants of Donbass from “genocide”.

After the start of the special operation, the Ukrainian authorities repeatedly called on NATO to accept Ukraine into the alliance. However, in early March, Zelensky said that Kyiv “has cooled” to this question. “We realized that NATO is not ready to accept Ukraine— the alliance fears contradictions and confrontation with Russia. We will never beg for something on our knees, we will not be such a country, and I will not become such a president, — he said then.

Lukashenko said that Russia has no plans to seize Ukraine

According to the President of Belarus, the Russian authorities and the military are simply showing that Russia must be reckoned with and that its president should not be insulted and “strangle the Russian language”

Alexander Lukashenko

The Russian leadership has no desire to “enslave, seize” ; Ukraine, said the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, reports “SB. Belarus Today».

“Believe me, [Russian President Vladimir] Putin, the Russian military, they have the desire to seize Ukraine, something else is missing. They simply showed that Russia must be reckoned with. No need to insult the President of Russia. There is no need to stifle the Russian language, which all Ukrainians speak. Even, as some say, nationalistically oriented,— explained Lukashenka.

He added that the main thing for Russia— own security: both Moscow and Minsk need to think about how to prevent a “bridgehead from where an attack could be possible.”

Among the goals of the operation in Ukraine, the Russian authorities name the demilitarization of the neighboring state, its cleansing from “pro-Nazi-minded people”, “deliverance of people from genocide”, the end of the “reckless course” to the complete dominance of the United States and its allies. There is no talk of occupation of Ukrainian territories, Moscow emphasizes.

Lavrov announced progress in the transfer of Russian farmstead in Israel

According to Lavrov, Russia will resolve the transfer of the Alexander Compound “in the foreseeable future” and will not wait until “Dynamo wins the Russian Cup”

Progress on the transfer of the Alexander Compound to Russia is evident, the Israeli authorities are showing understanding “of the need to restore this justice,” said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at a meeting dedicated to the 140th anniversary of the Imperial Orthodox Palestinian Society.

“Spartacus” won the Russian Cup on May 29. Lavrov— long time fan of this football club. The minister said that he had been rooting for him since school, and thoughts about Spartak help him calm down during difficult negotiations.

Alexander Compound— a complex of historical buildings in Jerusalem near the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. It was erected by the Russian Imperial Orthodox Palestinian Society at the end of the 19th century. The plot of land under the farmstead was bought by Emperor Alexander III in 1859. Disputes over the ownership of the farmstead began after the revolution of 1917.

The issue of transferring the Alexander Compound to Russia has been discussed since 2015. Dmitry Medvedev, then prime minister, instructed to begin registration of Russia's rights to the courtyard and the church of Alexander Nevsky. The documents were under consideration by the Israeli Ministry of Justice, the transfer of rights was launched at the end of December 2019, the Jerusalem Post and the Maariv newspaper reported. However, the Orthodox Palestinian Society of the Holy Land objected and went to court. The Russian Embassy in Israel said that they would defend their rights.

The Jerusalem District Court considered this claim and in March of this year refused to transfer the Alexander Compound to Russia. He decided that the legal owner of the architectural complex— The Orthodox Palestinian Society of the Holy Land and therefore Israel does not have the right to transfer the object to a third party.

China was suspected of trying to help Russia bypassing restrictive measures.

Doctors transplant 3D-printed ear into patient for the first time

Surgeons from an American biotechnology company sewn a 20-year-old patient for the first time with a new 3D-printed ear. This was reported on the company website.

The operation was required by the girl due to microtia, a congenital underdevelopment of the ear. This feature occurs on average in one child out of 10 thousand. It does not pose a danger, but it can ruin self-esteem.

Specialists scanned the patient’s healthy ear, took cartilage samples, then grew the required amount of cartilage cells, mixed them with collagen-based bioink and printed a new ear on a 3D printer. It all took about 10 minutes. This was followed by a transplant operation.

Physicians expect that over time, the transplanted ear will acquire nerves and take on a more natural appearance, as well as become sensitive.

To popularize the practice, 11 more such operations are scheduled patients. Doctors hope that in the future it will be possible to treat more severe diseases with the help of 3D bioprinters. For example, breast reconstruction after cancer.

Peskov said that his daughter’s eyes are “opening” due to sanctions

Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov, whose wife Tatyana Navka and children Elizaveta and Nikolai fell under EU sanctions on June 3, told RIA Novosti that it was useless to challenge the decision now: “There is no fair trial.” “One can only regret that Europe is forced to follow the trend set in Washington,” — he added.

Peskov told TASS that his daughter Elizabeth “loves France very much”, where she lived and studied for a long time. “But already many years ago she moved to us, she graduated from the MGIMO master's program here, lives and works here in Moscow. And she is connected with France only by sympathy and warm feelings, nothing else, — emphasized the representative of the Kremlin, noting that Elizaveta Peskova works at the Foundation for the Development of Russian-French Historical Initiatives. In particular, there she worked for several years on a project to excavate and return to France the remains of the French General Cesar Charles-Etienne Guden, who died in 1812, discovered in 2019 near Smolensk.

“And it’s very interesting that she also fell under sanctions. She opens her eyes to many things, — Peskov noted.

The presidential representative himself was under EU sanctions due to the military operation in Ukraine in March. The United States imposed sanctions against both Peskov and his wife and adult children.

Elizaveta Peskova, commenting on Washington's decision to the Antiglyanets publication, called it insanity “to impose sanctions on adult children who have long been leading their personal <…> and professional life” and called for “stopping the ongoing witch hunt.” «I am proud to be Russian»— added the daughter of the Kremlin representative.

Tatyana Navka reacted to US sanctions with the words “life goes on.”

Putin announced his readiness to guarantee the passage of ships with wheat from Ukraine

Putin considered “shifting the problem from a sick head to a healthy one” attempts to blame Russia for the beginning of the food crisis /756542785504638.jpg” alt=”Putin announced his readiness to guarantee the passage of ships with wheat from Ukraine” />

The accusations of Russia in the food crisis are an attempt to shift the problem “from a sick head to a healthy one”, since the unfavorable situation on the world food market began to take shape even before the special operation in Ukraine. This was stated by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

He said that Russia is ready to ensure the unhindered export of Ukrainian grain “without any problems” through controlled ports. According to him, the Russian side is completing the clearance of the ports of Berdyansk and Mariupol on the Sea of ​​Azov.

“We are ready to ensure the smooth export of Ukrainian grain through these ports,”— Putin assured.

The head of state noted that the easiest and cheapest way to export Ukrainian grain is through Belarus, but for this the West must lift sanctions from Minsk. The Russian leader specified that grain from Belarus would go immediately to the Baltic ports, to the Baltic Sea, and then— anywhere in the world.

Putin stressed that the unfavorable situation on the world food market began to take shape much earlier than the start of Russia's special military operation in Ukraine.

According to him, the food crisis began to take shape back in February 2020 in the process of dealing with the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, when it was necessary to restore the global economy. Thus, Washington began to inject large sums of money to support the population and individual enterprises and sectors of the economy.

He noted that in the United States from February 2020 to the end of 2021, the money supply grew by $5.9 trillion, calling it “unprecedented work of the printing press.” As a result, food prices began to rise. US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen admitted they made a mistake, Putin added.

“So this is the mistake of the financial, economic authorities of the United States, it has nothing to do with Russia’s actions in Ukraine, nothing at all,” — said the Russian leader.

The second reason the President of Russia called “short-sighted policy”; the European Union, especially in the energy sector. As a result, banks stopped lending, insurance companies— to insure transactions, the construction of specialized transport was reduced. All this has led to underinvestment in the global energy sector, and as a result— price increase, Putin explained.

At the end of May, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen accused Moscow of allegedly using food as a weapon. “Russia uses hunger and grain to gain influence,” — she said.

Fears of a global food shortage have been raised since the start of the military operation in Ukraine, as Russia and Ukraine— one of the largest grain suppliers in the world (16% and 10% of global wheat exports in the 2021/22 season, respectively).

Wheat prices have risen to record levels since the outbreak of hostilities.

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken also accused Russia of aggravating the food crisis in Ukraine. About 20 million tons of grain remain unused on the territory of the country, he stressed.

On April 20, the Russian Ministry of Defense suspended the movement of foreign warships and other government ships in three areas of the Black Sea for six months.

The Colombo High Commercial Court has banned the ship from leaving the country until June 16. The press service of “Aeroflot” RBC was told that the flight to Moscow was first delayed and then canceled “due to the lack of permission from the aviation authorities of Sri Lanka.” The plane was under arrest, a court hearing on the removal of which is scheduled for June 8. Flight passengers are accommodated in hotels in Sri Lanka.

Because of these restrictions, Russian airlines had to return the aircraft to lessors. Rosaviatsia recommended that air carriers not use leased aircraft for flights abroad. In March, Russia allowed to register such aircraft in the country for use on domestic flights.

The court allowed the investigation against Yanukovych because of the Black Sea Fleet

Last week, the court allowed the arrest of Yanukovych in a case related to agreements on the Russian fleet in Crimea, and now a special pre-trial investigation can be launched against the politician

Viktor Yanukovych

The Kyiv Pechersk Court allowed a special pre-trial investigation against the former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych due to the signing of the Kharkiv agreements in 2010 in his absence, the office of the country's Prosecutor General reported on Telegram.

Viktor Yanukovych and Dmitry Medvedev signed the Kharkiv agreements in April 2010. According to these agreements, the stay of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Crimea was extended from 2017 to 2042 in exchange for a discount on Russian gas for Ukraine. After Crimea became part of Russia in March 2014, Moscow unilaterally denounced the agreements.

The Prosecutor General's Office recalled that now two absentee pre-trial investigations have already been opened against the ex-president: “on the fact of the seizure of state power by the former president in September & October 2010”; and in the case of organizing illegal border crossing and “incitement to commit desertion”.

Yanukovych served as president of Ukraine from 2010 to 2014, and fled to Russia after the Euromaidan. In Ukraine, several criminal cases were opened against him, including because of the conclusion of the Kharkov agreements, under Part 1 of Art. 111 of the Criminal Code (treason). Under this article, the former head of state faces up to 15 years in prison. In one of the criminal cases, Yanukovych was sentenced in absentia to 13 years in prison for treason and complicity in the “waging of an aggressive war.”

The Ukrainian authorities have repeatedly criticized the Kharkiv agreements. In March last year, the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) instructed to check the circumstances of the ratification of the Kharkiv agreements. “Many interesting characters voted, who continue to remain in Ukrainian politics,” — noted NSDC Secretary Oleksiy Danilov.

According to the investigation, Yanukovych, together with former Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, damaged the sovereignty, territorial integrity and inviolability, defense capability, state and economic security of the state, providing Russia with assistance in “carrying out subversive activities”; against Ukraine. The agreement “artificially created the prerequisites for increasing the number of Russian troops on the territory of Ukraine,” the prosecutor's office explained. The Ukrainian investigation also believes that before signing the documents, Russia artificially raised the price of gas.

The Foreign Ministry demanded from the United States an explanation for the transfer of Russian Mi-17s to Ukraine

She accused Washington of “unbridled desire to pump” Kyiv with weapons “The Foreign Ministry demanded that the US explain the transfer of Russian Mi-17s to Ukraine” />

Russia is demanding an explanation from the United States for the decision to transfer four Mi-17 helicopters to Ukraine, which Moscow previously supplied to Washington for use only by the armed forces of Afghanistan, said Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova. Her statement is published on the website of the department.

“Only this way, and nothing else. However, these legal restrictions, as we see, are not an obstacle for Washington in its unrestrained desire to pump weapons to Kyiv,— Zakharova wrote.

The representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs emphasized that the rules for the operation of helicopters were enshrined in the contract and the end user certificate. Moscow has repeatedly appealed to Washington with comments on compliance with the agreements, she noted, but Washington insists that military assistance to Ukraine strengthens only the country's defense, and US actions are in line with national interests and legislation. She called the decisions of the American authorities “another egregious fact of violation by the American side of its international obligations.” and “the policy of double standards”.

The representative of the Foreign Ministry also criticized the supply of multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) to Ukraine, doubting Kyiv's guarantees that military equipment would not be used for strikes outside the country. She continued: “We know very well and remember from the history of ‘observance’ of Kyiv what Kyiv’s assurances are worth. Ukrainian side of the Minsk agreements.

We are talking about a $ 700 million military aid package for Ukraine, which US President Joe Biden announced two days earlier, on June 1. He clarified that Kyiv would be provided with “timely and necessary” support, including the Himaris MLRS and its ammunition. The Pentagon added that four Mi-17 helicopters, two radar stations, five anti-artillery radars, 1,000 Javelin man-portable anti-tank missile systems and 50 missile launchers, 15,000 155-mm artillery shells and other weapons will also be sent to Ukraine. At the same time, the department did not specify how the helicopters came into the possession of the United States.

The helicopters were technically still owned by the Afghan government, but since they were paid for by the US budget as part of aid to Afghanistan, the Pentagon notified Congress last December that it intended to treat the helicopters as the property of the ministry, the newspaper wrote.

The Foreign Ministry accused the EU of “undermining the foundations” of Ukrainian agriculture

The department “debunked the myths” of Brussels about the destruction of Ukrainian agriculture by Russia. Moscow is interested in the food self-sufficiency of Kyiv and is making efforts in this area, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs emphasizes

In particular, Russia has begun a sowing campaign in the territories taken under control during the hostilities and is engaged in the restoration of agricultural infrastructure, the Foreign Ministry notes. Russian producers will provide vegetable and grain seeds for shipment to the DPR and LPR, 40 tons of seed have already been sent to the region. In the south of the Kherson region, the military “during the humanitarian demining of agricultural land” neutralized more than 12 thousand explosive objects. More than 200 hectares of “liberated territories” were cleared of explosive devices in the DPR.

“It is the European Union that is engaged in undermining the foundations of agriculture, and not only Ukrainian agriculture,” — the ministry said. They accused the European Union of deployed “full-scale mobilization in order to promptly export millions of tons of Ukrainian grain to the European Union”: according to the department, Brussels plans to export “in a western direction” about 20 million tons of grain before the beginning of July, despite “a significant decline in the harvest in Ukraine predicted by international experts”; this year. “For this, transport corridors are being created, alternative to the sea route blocked due to the fault of Kyiv itself. It is planned to promptly send additional trucks and freight cars to the Ukrainian border for transporting grain, barges, to include special slots for trains with Ukrainian grain in the railway schedule, and customs duties on Ukrainian exports are canceled for a year. Grain, corn, oilseeds are exported in huge volumes, — enumerate diplomats. This, according to their data, is evidenced by “numerous videos published in the media.” At the same time, the EU “in the most cynical way” baselessly accuses Russia of “confiscation of Ukrainian stocks”; grain and agricultural machinery, the document notes.
