Syria conflict: Russia hopes to extend truce to Aleppo - BBC News


Many killed in Aleppo as fierce fighting shatters Syria’s fragile truce | World news | The Guardian


Opposition-held area of city at risk of siege as violence erupts days after halt in peace talks and deployment of Russian artillery
Forces loyal to Bashar al-Assad are buoyed by recent battlefield advances, largely the result of massive Russian aerial bombardment of rebels fighting to overthrow the Syrian dictator. But progress in recent weeks has been slow with the partial withdrawal of Russian forces ordered by the Kremlin.
Government forces hope to encircle east Aleppo, which is held by the opposition, and are also fighting in the countryside to cut supply lines in the north from Turkey.

Spain Issues Warrants For Top Russian Officials, Putin Insiders

A Spanish judge has issued international arrest warrants for several Russian political figures and former government officials closely linked to President Vladimir Putin.





Putinfellas

In 2010, [Spanish Judge] Grinda briefed U.S. officials in Madrid about the investigation, informing them that the Kremlin used “organised crime groups to do whatever the government of Russia cannot acceptably do as a government.”According to a classified cable from the U.S. embassy that was published by Wikileaks, the prosecutor told the American officials that Putin’s Russia was a “virtual mafia” state where it was impossible to distinguish between the government’s activities and those of organized crime groups.In terms of countering the threat Putin’s Russia poses to the West, the Spanish investigation is no less important than NATO’s moves to rotate four brigades through the alliance’s frontline states in Eastern Europe.The alliance’s decision to beef up defenses on its eastern flank should create a credible deterrent to the kinetic threat from Moscow.But dealing with the more insidious non-kinetic threat, the one stemming from Moscow’s weaponization of organized crime, is a job for law-enforcement.

M.N.: The very strange and puzzling case against V. Bukovsky...

M.N.: The very strange and puzzling case against V. Bukovsky. I believe that it is entirely possible that the "forbidden pedophilic images" were somehow planted into his computer by Russian intelligence services or their equivalents. Given all this hullabaloo with cybersecurity these days and the "achievements" of  Russian hackers, it would not be surprising at all. It would also fit neatly into the evident, counteracting "anti-Putin pedophilia narrative", apparently pursued actively by "his post-Soviet majesty's" servants. The most poignant thing is that this affair pits such a figure as V. Bukovsky against the British judicial system, which he called "Kafkaesque". I guess, some people in some Moscow offices rub their hands with glee and satisfaction. This "case", I am sure, is watched by many and it might produce some investigative, legal, cyber and political lessons to learn. 

Russian dissident, who was a close friend of Litvinenko, is protesting at ‘Kafkaesque’ judicial system in UK. Source:Vladimir Bukovsky: ‘I’m on hunger strike for the British public’ | World news | The Guardian
