London keeps world on a short leash

Pravda

The British PM David Cameron called Nigeria and Afghanistan to be “fantastically corrupt countries”. Representatives of Nigeria and Afghanistan held it offensive. They believe they have done a lot to put an end to corruption in their countries. President of Nigeria said he wouldn’t demand apologies and claimed that London would rather help to return what had been stolen by local officials. Yuriy Solozobov, Director of international projects at the National Strategy Institute of Russia, commented Pravda.Ru on the issue. “Money, which was moved out of the country, goes to the Western financial centres. The main financial centre is situated…

Saudi officials were ‘supporting’ 9/11 hijackers, commission member says

The Guardian

In their joint statement last month, the chairman and vice-chairman of the commission suggested they agreed that there might be danger in releasing the full 28 pages of the congressional report. Photograph: Spencer Platt/Getty Images A former Republican member of the 9/11 commission, breaking dramatically with the commission’s leaders, said Wednesday he believes there was clear evidence that Saudi government employees were part of a support network for the 9/11 hijackers and that the Obama administration should move quickly to declassify a long-secret congressional report on Saudi ties to the 2001 terrorist attack. The comments by John F Lehman, an…

NEW DELHI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – India’s top court on Wednesday slammed authorities for delays in responding to the worst drought in decades, saying that some states had taken an “ostrich-like attitude” towards the calamity, and called on the government to set up a drought fund. More than 330 million people – almost a quarter of India’s population – have been hit by water shortages across 13 of the country’s 29 states, including Haryana, Bihar, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh, and Karnataka. A petition filed by Swaraj Abhiyan, a Delhi-based non-profit group, said that India’s current method of declaring drought…

Hagel says NATO deployment could spark a new Cold War with Russia

By Kristina Wong – 05/11/16 02:29 AM EDT Former Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Tuesday urged caution in response to NATO’s plans to deploy four battalions to the Baltic states, warning it could lead to another Cold War with Russia. “If I were secretary of defense today, I’d be careful with this because, I’m not opposed to it, but we can find ourselves very quickly in another Cold War buildup here, that really makes no sense for either side,” he said at a media roundtable at the Atlantic Council. In response to NATO’s decision to send the four battalions —…

Turkish court says insufficient evidence against suspected killer of Russian pilot

A war plane crashes in flames in a mountainous area in northern Syria after it was shot down by Turkish fighter jets near the Turkish-Syrian border November 24, 2015. Turkish fighter jets shot down a Russian-made warplane near the Syrian border on Tuesday after repeatedly warning it over air space violations, Turkish officials said, but Moscow said it could prove the jet had not left Syrian air space. Turkish presidential sources said the warplane was a Russian-made SU-24. Turkey's military, which did not confirm the plane's origin, said it had been warned 10 times in the space of five minutes about violating Turkish airspace. Russia's defence ministry said one of its fighter jets had been downed in Syria, apparently after coming under fire from the ground, but said it could prove the plane was over Syria for the duration of its flight, Interfax news agency reported.

A Turkish court has decided there is insufficient evidence to prosecute a man suspected of killing a Russian air force pilot after his plane was shot down by a Turkish jet near the Syrian-Turkish border last November, the man’s lawyer said on Tuesday. Russian defense officials said at the time that the pilot had managed to eject from his Su-24 plane only to be killed by ground fire from militants inside Syria. His navigator survived but a Russian marine was killed during the rescue mission. Alparslan Celik, who was fighting with a Turkish-backed Turkmen brigade opposing government forces in northern…
