Russia | Does Turkey prepare military intervention to Syria?

The spokesman of the Russian Defence Ministry informed media that “it registers a growing number of signs of hidden preparation of the Turkish Armed Forces for active actions on the territory of Syria”. http://eng.syria.mil.ru/en/index/syria/news/more.htm?id=12076588@egNews
It was Russian answer to Turkey after it refused the Russian specialists to perform the observation flight over the areas adjacent to Syria, as well as over the airfields with concentrations of NATO aviation and without any specific explanation at that. The Russian Federation was to have conducted an observation flight over the territory of the Turkish Republic on February 1-5, 2016 in accordance with the Treaty on Open Skies.

Ukraine | Prosecutor General of Ukraine is indignant at misuse of fascists

Ukrainian Prosecutor General suddenly told truth after two years of silence.
Here are some of his brilliant words:
“For all legal grounds the “Right sector” is illegal armed group”.
“Any separately taken unit can not, even under the banner of patriotism, hide with weapons in the rear areas and shoot the police posts.”
The prosecutor stated that criminal cases are actively hidden now behind the guise of patriotism.
The prosecutor accused the Interior Ministry that it hides the details of the robbery of the patriotic groups in the rear, including in Kiev. It was the Ministry of Internal Affairs in his opinion who must bring the “Right sector” under control.
At the same time Matios has no observations against the Ukrainian fascists in principle: “These are – the heroes, the nation’s elite. These are extraordinary patriots of the state”, – said the prosecutor. However, the state must use them correctly, because “the use of patriots for political purposes without statist positions mentioned before means a collapse of the state foundations.”

Poland | Polish prosecutors are investigating the crimes of Ukrainian nationalists

During the Second World War, Ukrainian nationalists committed many crimes against the Polish population of Western Ukraine. Polish prosecutors have suggested that these crimes include signs of genocide and have no limitation period.
“From the point of view of the Ukrainian legislation, these cases have become obsolete. So we can not rely on legal aid by Ukraine in the establishing of responsiblity for the killings,” – it was said by the investigator Conrad Beron from the investigation department in “The Institute of National Remembrance.”
Investigators intend to study not only the genocide of Poles, but also murders of Ukrainians committed by Ukrainian nationalists.
