Russians are coming- be ready to deal with it, or „turn your tail and run“…

Some from the Serbian government’ establishment „don’t like“ Russians, but „Russians are coming“- be ready to deal with it, or „turn your tail and run“…

@Darko Trifunović „Such idiot. How he can interfere in internal affairs of Serbia? Is that brotherhood approach of big Russian brother? I do not want Russian ambassador or any others to tell me what to do! Get out hand of Serbia!“(comment of Dr Darko Trifunovic (Secretary of Institute for „State security“ @ „Faculty of internal affairs“ in Belgrade) on Blic’ article: http://english.blic.rs/In-Focus/10057/Russian-ambassadors-threat-to-Serbia-NATO-red-line )  –

You, Mr. Trifunovic, as a secretary of an „strategic“ government institution, should know better then to use such profane language to describe an diplomatic official who comes from one of the friendliest country to Serbia. And nowadays there are not to many such Serbian friends, as the honorable Russian ambassador Mr. Aleksandr Chepurin…

If you have read carefully through the above Blic’ text, you would notice comment from your colleague Predrag Simic, who made remark that nothing is strange for Russia meddling into Serbian internal affairs, because until now South Africa (this is of course satiric comment) was the only country not to interfere into the „submissive to West, and politically castrated“, corrupted Serbian government.

You know to well, that since 2000 all important Serbian government’ decisions were done inside the walls of major Western embassies in Belgrade (beside Brussels and Washington).

As you stated that- you „do not want Russian ambassador or any others to tell me what to do! Get out hand of Serbia!“ – Now I expect from you nothing less, but to issue the same public warning to all Western ambassadors and EU envoys, that at present time openly meddling (and blackmailing our country) into Serbian internal affairs. Or maybe you are to afraid to do so, because at the end of the day, you are (in)directly on their payroll !?

To conclude this „replica“- In my personal belief: Russian’ concern with NATO taking militarily over country- where Russians are investing multimillion (in your favorite currency- dollars) projects, which will be for the benefits of, not only Russians, but for Serbian nation as well- is fully justified.

If we, as a nation and government wish to be honest in this relationship with Russia, we should at least remain militarily neutral (or, if we are forced to chose, than we have to side only with our historical, natural, cultural and proven „brotherly friends“… And such friends of Serbia, today certainly are not in the imperialistic West, but rather on the East – where they always used to be…

Russia shows USAID the door. US insulted and humiliated!

Russia shows USAID the door. US insulted and humiliated

The decision to terminate the activity of the United States Agency for International Development, USAID, in Russia has expectedly caused a great deal of noise. Human rights advocates are in shock, State Department is calming them down, Senator McCain said that this was an insult to the U.S., and the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs explains why it shut down USAID.

Before the incident, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said that the U.S. has recently learned about the Russian government’s decision to put an end to the activities of USAID in Russia. She added, „We are extremely proud of what USAID has accomplished in Russia over the past two decades.“

The Agency for International Development was established in 1961, and the act of its creation was signed by U.S. President John F. Kennedy. The agency began its work In Russia in 1992. For 20 years, according to Nuland, USAID has spent $2.7 billion in Russia. Of which, not very confidently said the State Department spokeswoman, a third went to „the development of democracy.“

Of course, USAID has worked not only with human rights activists, but also with government agencies, large local companies, etc. The human rights activists, of course, are upset the most.

In particular, the decision to close the agency’s office in Russia extremely upset the association „The Voice“, which monitors elections. „The hastiness and sudden nature of this decision is apparently related to the elections on October 14. We will look for any means to maintain at least the web project (“ Map of election fraud.)“, said Shibanova. The executive director of „The Voice“ is not concerned by the fact that the activities of the association monitoring Russian elections depended entirely on the help of USAID.

The Russian Foreign Ministry, meanwhile, confirmed that the termination of USAID activity in Russia is connected with the attempts to influence the political process. „The Russian Foreign Ministry officially informed the U.S. side that the activities of the U.S. Agency for International Development in the Russian Federation should be discontinued starting October 1st of this year. Such a decision is due primarily to the fact that the nature of the agency representatives in our country did not always meet the stated goals of promoting bilateral humanitarian cooperation,“ said in his statement Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich.

„This decision (to shut down USAID) is made due to attempts of the agency to influence political processes, civil society institutions, and elections at various levels, through distribution of grants,“ he said.

The longtime „well-wisher“ of Russia, Republican Senator John McCain, described Moscow’s closure of the USAID mission as „an insult to the United States and a finger in the eye of the Obama Administration.“

The Senator’s concerns are understandable. The agency mission was not the distribution of grants alone. Media had reports that USAID served as a cover for the activities of organizations that are anything but charitable. Insulting or not, but the incident is indeed not a pleasant one for Washington.


USAID се купи из Русије!

Викторија Нуланд

Примиче се крају физичко присуство USAID у Русији, али САД ће и даље подржавати демократију, људска права и развој здравијег грађанског друштва у Русији и надамо се наставку сарадње са руским невладиним организацијама – изјавила је портпарол Стејт департмента Викторија Нуланд        РУСКИ закон који све НВО, које примају финансијску помоћ из иностранства, проглашава „страним агентима“ – још није реално ступио на снагу, а већ даје прве плодове. И то какве!

        Америчка агенција за међународну помоћ – USAID – најавила је повлачење из Руске Федерације! Наводно због „губљења интереса за Русију“.

        А да све буде типично амерички, портпарол Стејт департмента, Викторија Нуланд, покушала је да „лоптицу“ пребаци на руску страну, рекавши:

      „Сједињене Државе су недавно сазнале за одлуку владе Русије да прекрати деловање USAID. А ми се веома поносимо оним што је  USAID постигао у Русији током протекле две деценије и са својим партнерима и сарадницима радићемо на томе да агенција заврши започете програме или да за то пренесе овлашћења“.

        Сам USAID је својим „уплаканим“ руским клијентима обећао: да ће наставити да „са дистанце“ помаже  хору руских невладиних организација западних влада и да ће остати „привржен помагању демократије“.

        А Нуландова је чак покушала и да поентира:

    „Примиче се крају физичко присуство USAID у Русији, али САД ће и даље подржавати демократију, људска права и развој здравијег грађанског друштва у Русији и надамо се – нагласила је – наставку сарадње са руским невладиним организацијама“.
