Russia’s relief efforts abroad reach unprecedented levels: "We even delivered aid to the US twice, in 2005 and 2012"

The Russian Emergencies Ministry has recently sent one of its aircraft to extinguish wildfires in Armenia. This humanitarian operation was just a small drop in a series of Russian humanitarian operations around the world. Due to a significant increase in the number and scale of emergencies in the world Russia’s relief operations abroad have reached an unprecedented level, Yuri Brazhnikov, Director of the EMERCOM agency told Rossiyskaya Gazeta. "More than 430 large-scale emergency operations have been conducted since 1993, including 278 operations to deliver humanitarian cargo. We even delivered aid to the US twice, in 2005 and 2012," he said. Humanitarian operations are really expensive, Brazhnikov noted, and only a powerful and great country recognized by the UN and other influential international organizations can afford them.

Media: Islamic State Barcelona attack sends ripples

When asked about the consequences of this terrorist attack, Spanish political expert and Director of the El Semanal Digital publication Antoni Naranjo answered briefly, "unity", in an interview with the paper. He noted that, in the wake of the attack, employees of El Prat Airport decided to end the large-scale indefinite strike, which had significantly hampered the work of Barcelona’s major air hub. Meanwhile, member of the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party Juan Moscoso del Prado informed Izvestia that the fact that Barcelona had been chosen by terrorists as a target is no coincidence. The politician recalled that the city is very popular with tourists, and it is very easy for terrorists to find a place for a potential attack. Apparently, jihadists are behind the attack, since the greatest number of extremist groups is in the region, he noted. Every successful terrorist attack is replicated, retired FSB Colonel Vladimir Lutsenko explained to Kommersant.

‘They have caused this’ Nigel Farage blasts European leaders after fatal Barcelona attack

Farage said: “What happens is they all stand up and they say ‘We stand in solidarity with Barcelona, or Brussels, or Stockholm, or Paris, or London or wherever it may be, and this is really truly awful’.

“There is no understanding of why this is going on and not once, not once, do we ever hear a single leader in Europe offer any policy solution whatsoever.

“They are still in denial, and my only guess is that they are so embarrassed by the fact that they have caused this.”

Study finds that “teen depression” increases risk of violence … so they should all be treated with more drugs that cause violence instead?

The Times also noted that since the early 2000s, antidepressant drugs have had to carry strong warnings about increased risk of suicide for children, teens and young adults. They are only considered “safe” (by the FDA, at least) in those over the age of 25.

Experts have also been warning the public for years that thousands of people on SSRIs, or weaning off them, have committed suicide and other violent acts, including mass shootings.

Furthermore, a 2016 study published in the journal The Lancet, which compared the 14 most commonly prescribed antidepressants, including Prozac (fluoxetine), Effexor (venlafaxine) and Lexapro (escitalopram), found that only fluoxetine worked better than placebo.

In other words, these drugs, which alter the chemistry of the brain and carry serious side effects, are totally useless, anyway!

Turkey wants to use national currencies in trade with Russia — economy minister

Turkey’s Minister of Economy Nihat Zeybekci said on Friday he thinks his country and Russia should use national currencies in their trade. "We are looking at setting a task of using Turkish liras and Russian roubles in bilateral trade. If we don’t do it, our trade will be strongly influenced by exchange rate fluctuations," he said at a plenary session on the margins of the 86th international exhibition in Izmir. "We hope that before October 20, when the Russian-Turkish intergovernmental commission is to meet in Kazan, these issues will be settled and we will be able to set further tasks"...

Mainstream media finally starting to ask why TURMERIC isn’t being promoted as a safe, affordable treatment for CANCER

“Curcumin is a strong anti-inflammatory agent and chronic inflammation is the precursor of 99 per cent of all cancers,” explained Angus Dalgleish, a professor of cancer at St George’s Hospital in South London

Before it can be widely prescribed by doctors, it must be tested in large-scale trials. Sadly, nobody is willing to take up the challenge since these trials cost millions of dollars. An investment that could never be repaid as there is no big money to be made from sales of a natural compound that cannot be patented, the Daily Mail Online reported.

Julie Ryan, a cancer specialist at the University of Rochester Medical Center in New York, told the journal Nature that the biological activity of curcumin is real. She believes that chemically modified forms may be even more effective at reaching certain tissues.

USA, hands off Venezuela! - Russia

The United States has renewed its threats to Venezuela to impose new sanctions in the nearby future. “Venezuela is sliding into dictatorship”, the US Vice President Mike Pence wrote on his Twitter account. “The United States will not accept the rise of a dictator and there may be new sanctions against Venezuela soon,” Pence told the crowd at a press conference during his visit to Colombia. “We have many options for Venezuela, including a military intervention if necessary”, he told reporters in New Jersey. While legitimate opposition does exist in Venezuela, the Maduro government is obviously not willing to bend over backwards far enough to whatever demands of the US energy interests in Venezuela, which is one of few reasons the US ever considers military intervention...

SBU to assess propriety of Ukrainian children's vacations in Russia

The Security Service of Ukraine will give a legal assessment of the vacation trips of Ukrainian schoolchildren in Russia. SBU will conduct a test at the request of the Ministry of Education of the country. This is owing to the fact Khobzei, deputy head of the Ministry of Education, considers it "incorrect" that Ukrainian children vacation in Russia. He acknowledged that the Russian-Ukrainian border was not officially closed, and officials had no right to tell parents where their children should vacation. At the same time, the department is concerned about such facts and they ask the SBU to pay attention to them and give them a legal assessment, writes Tsargrad. We recall that, earlier in the occupied Slavyansk three teenagers were featured in the center of ascandal - inflated by mass media of Ukraine - because of refusing to rise under sounds of the anthem.

Seattle Mayor calls Lenin monuments symbols of hate and racism

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray believes that the two monuments to Vladimir Lenin should be demolished. According to Murray, the monument to Lenin in Fremont and the monument to Confederate soldiers at Capitol Hill glorify "historic injustices" and are symbols of hate, racism and violence. "Not only do these kinds of symbols represent historic injustices, their existence causes pain among those who themselves or whose family members have been impacted by these atrocities," Murray said in the statement. "We should remove all these symbols, no matter what political affiliation may have been assigned to them in the decades since they were erected. This includes both Confederate memorials and statues idolizing the founder of the authoritarian Soviet regime," he added. Noteworthy, both monuments are installed in private areas. Meanwhile, Ukraine has liquidated all monuments to Vladimir Lenin.

Up to 3,000 jihadists expected to come to Europe in near future

Up to 3,000 jihadists are expected to come to Europe in the coming years, experts from RAN analytical center said. In their opinion, the militants, who had left European countries to fight on the side of terrorists, are coming back to their homes now. The number of terrorists coming to Europe may increase dramatically should the Islamic State terrorist group declare its defeat. The experts also said that a third of Europeans, who had left for the war, have already returned home. Most of them remain under police surveillance, but others managed to escape from the sight of the authorities. Most of those terrorists have suffered psychic traumas as they have either taken part in brutal hostilities or eyewitnessed violence, RAN researchers say. More than 42,000 foreign soldiers from more than 120 countries joined the ranks of jihadists from 2011 to 2016. About 5,000 people left European countries to struggle "in the name of Islam."

Trump calls for the United States to imitate fake war crimes to fight terrorism

After he struggled to condemn a white supremacist terrorist attack in the United States, reluctantly condemned it, and then pivoted back to the idea that not every participant in a neo-Nazi rally that ended with a woman’s murder was necessarily bad, a deadly terrorist attack in Barcelona offered President Trump the more comfortable terrain of talking about Islamic terrorism.
