The former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Pavlo Klimkin, called on Ukrainians to boycott the products of the company Apple over the latter’s recognition of Crimea…
I have earlier brought the news that the company apple acquiesced to the demands of the Russian Federation to display Crimea as a part of Russia to Russian users…
At least to those that have their iPhones set to the Russian AppStore…
Apple has complied with Russian demands to show the annexed Crimean peninsula as part of Russian territory on its apps.
Russian forces annexed Crimea from Ukraine in March 2014, drawing international condemnation.
The region, which has a Russian-speaking majority, is now shown as Russian territory on Apple Maps and its Weather app, when viewed from Russia.
But the apps do not show it as part of any country when viewed elsewhere.
Read my recent translation of Babchenko’s Facebook rant, which contains a biographical introduction…
The journalist, Evgeniy Kiselev announced that Arkadiy Babchenko departed from Ukraine. This Evgeniy Kiselev said on his tv show and wrote on Facebook.
On Friday, 1 November, the journalist posted on his YouTube channel the first episode of his programme “PonaUekhavshie” (a play on words that I had trouble to conveniently translate) about Russian emigrants in Ukraine. Evgeniy Kiselev wrote about the programme on Facebook and one of the users asked him why wasn’t Arkadiy Babchenko included in the film. To which Kiselev answered that Babchenko has left Ukraine.
He is either in Finland or in Estonia…
-answered Kiselev when the people inquired about Babchenko’s whereabouts.
The Czech President is a master troll. From Ukrayins’ka Pravda
The President of Czech Republic, Miloš Zeman invited the representatives of a small Crimean Tatar organization, loyal to the Kremlin, which considers Crimea to be part of Russia. to an official audience in the Prague Castle.
The representative of the marginal (subjective opinion of the Ukrayinska Pravda, the appeal of this organisation could not be independently verified) organisation “K’yrym birligi”, Tamila Nimetullaeva has attended the official audience in the Presidential Palace dedicated to 101 anniversary of the creation of Czechoslovakia, held on 28 October.
This organisation, as the publication admits, plays an important role for the propagandist media of the Russian Federation. They are declaring their support for Moscow as a counterweight to the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar Peoples. (perhaps it is the Mejlis that is the irrelevant party here)
At the same time, the organisation is not recognized by the EU.
“The EU and its leaders have never met with these pseudo-representatives of the Crimean Tatars, and never had relations with them. For the EU, the legal representatives [of the Crimean Tatars] is the Mejlis and other Crimean organisations that function or are represented in Ukraine.” -said the former speaker of the EU representation David Stulík.
(The Mejlis was arbitrarily appointed the representative of the Crimean Tatar peoples in 2014 following Russian takeover of Crimea. The wishes of Kiev or Brussels may not reflect the reality of things on the ground.)
The organisations immediately exploited its presence at the official audience of the Czech President.
“The President of Czech Republic, Miloš Zeman is s European politician, who recognized Crimea as a part of Russia. The Czech Republic is a friend to our country. K’yrym birligi is glad that our activity has been recognized internationally. We are thankful for this annual invitation to the Birthday of the Czech Republic.” -is being said in a post on the organization’s Facebook page. It is accompanied by photographs, including one featuring Nimetullaeva with the Czech Prime Minister, Andrej Babiš.
The President’s office was not able to explain, even after numerous demands, why this organisation was invited to the festivities.
Presidents press secretary, Jiří Ovčáček did not deny the president considers Crimea to be a part of Russia. “The people hold a variety of views. I have lived through the eighties when we were forced to assume only one view. I don’t want to repeat those times.”
The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Tomáš Petříček has come out against the invitation of pro-Kremlin activists. “I personally would not have invited such persons to an event organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.” He said that audiences with the president are not being consulted with the Foreign Ministry.
The publication also found out that the request for audience with the Czech President was facilitated for the pro-Kremlin organisations through Carpatho-Rusyn activists.
We remind the readers that the Czech President, Miloš Zeman, received an audience of 7 people at the Prague Castle, who represent the Carpatho-Rusyns that demand an autonomy within Ukraine.
It triggered many. Here is Ayder Muzhdabayev. Ayder is a Russian journalist that moved to Ukraine, and now he is more Ukrainian than many Ukrainians.
The President of Czech Republic, a country for whose freedom, Mustafa Jemilev went to a Russian jail, acknowledged “Russian sovereignty over Crimea”. May you die mother fucker. You monster. Although, I have no questions for the old prostitute bought by Putin. The Czechs should be ashamed. You have fucked the Prague Spring and your dignity having elected this piece of shit. May the Russians again occupy you, and may no one support you this time. May Facebook block me again for this post. This is the lowest moral point and I don’t give a fuck.
Commenting on the matter of his potential impeachment, the US President, Donald J. Trump passes a Freudian slip when he accidentally called Volodymyr Zelensky, the “new Russian President”.
The quotation from the White House website:
So, in a nutshell, a whistleblower wrote a false narrative of the conversation. Now they don’t want to talk about the whistleblower because they didn’t think I was going to release the conversation. When I released the conversation, I blew up Schiff’s act. And just to put topping on it, the Russian — as you know, the new Russian President, a good man, made his statement. There was no anything. There was no pressure put on him. No anything.
Russian, Ukrainian – not much of a difference there…
A series of photos has surfaced of Natalia Poklonskaya and Ruslan Balbek, two notorious Russian parliamentarians, dining with the president of Turkey, Erdogan…
They were a part of the Russian delegation at an anti-terrorism conference.
Zrada, Erdogan khuylo, such shit would not happen under Poroshenko…
According to Telgram channel “Pravblog”, the ex-president sought audience with the Pontifex in order to discuss the merger of the Orthodox Church in Ukraine with the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.
However, the Bishop of Rome had no empty time slots.
The EU needs to help the Russian people, who are being robbed by Putler’s cronies to pay for real estate in the EU! Help Russia, please! Sanction these people!
But in reality, the EU is absolutely cool with this Russian connection. Do you honestly think they would kick these fat cats out to develop real estate in Crimea or Abkhazia?
Dear Ukrainians, do you still ask why Russia was allowed back into the PACE?
This Eltsov, or Yeltsov, or Eltsev, or Yeltsev guy thinks that within the next thirty years, the Russian Federation will implode under the weight of separatist movements and other internal problems. (read his thoughts in Politico). 30 years is a convenient time frame because after 30 years, most people reading this will be very old or with the Lord. And I personally have better things to do than argue with someone, who thinks “Putinism” is informed by Alexander Dugin.
