In February of 2017, The Duran reported on 4 dead Russian Diplomats in 3 months, following the tragic and sudden death of UN Envoy Vitaly Churkin.

Sudanese authorities have confirmed that a fifth Russian Ambassador has been found dead at his residence.

Via Sputnik News

Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to the Republic of Sudan Mirgayas M. Shirinskiy was pronounced dead on Wednesday, RIA Novosti reports.

Before taking his post in Sudan, Shirinskiy served at the Russian embassies in Egypt, Yemen, Saudi Arabia and Rwanda.

RT has also confirmed the tragic news via the Russian Foreign Ministry…

Russia’s envoy to Sudan, Mirgayas Shirinsky, has died in the capital, Khartoum, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Wednesday evening, confirming earlier reports that the diplomat was found dead.

Employees of the embassy discovered Shirinsky at his residence around 6pm local time, the press secretary of the Sudan mission, Sergey Konyashin, told RT.

The diplomat, who was 62 years old, appeared to have symptoms consistent with a serious heart seizure, Konyashin said, adding that doctors were immediately called to the scene, but were unable to save his life.

The diplomat’s body was taken to a morgue in a Khartoum hospital, the spokesman said, adding that procedures are now in place to arrange for its return to Russia.

Sudan’s Foreign Ministry has released an official statement, expressing condolences.

“We mourn the death of Ambassador Mirgayas Shirinsky, who made friendly and sincere efforts to develop privileged relations between the two countries and their people in various spheres,” the statement from the North African state says.

Shirinsky entered diplomatic service in 1977. In the early 1990s, he served as minister-counsellor at Russia’s embassy in Yemen, and was later appointed consul general to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. From 2006 to 2013, he served as ambassador to Rwanda in East Africa, and then, from December 2013, was Russia’s envoy to Sudan.

Do these follow the US navy crashes? 5 dead in one year is war. No wonder RF says there is no Cold War Two.
Heartfelt sympathy to all the family of Mirgayas Shirinsky.

Seems like CIA & Mossad are back bumping off Russian officials after a 5 mont long hiatus. 7 of them so far.

What will Russia’s “adequate and proportiounus” response bye?

Yes, and imagine the unbearable sliminess of Netanyahu, meeting Putin all smiles on this very day in Sochi. Sudan, having vast oil reserves, is of course in the throes of being devastated by the banksters. This is part of that particular slice of the Khazarian Mafia’s war on humanity. An article in a Sudanese newspaper describes the progress Russia was making there, diplomatically, and the obvious interest the Sudanese have in teaming up with them and with China: http://www.sudanvisiondaily.com/index.php/opinion/columns/8726-moonlight-time-has-come-to-activate-strategic-relations-with-russia?start=360 This is sickening.

Didn’t Churkin collapse on the streets of New York, the week after they took out Little Kim’s half brother, by bio-assassination techniques?

Ironic the timing, the day that President Putin grants an audience with Netanyahu, Mossad and the NSC? The day before Mattis turns up for tea and sandwiches with Porkie? When Syria has won.

Remember General Wesley Clark and his statement that they were going to take out 7 nations in 5 years?

“seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.”

This is sick. This isn’t an accident. This is planned. What country in the world has had 5 ambassadors murdered within in a year. The people who did this are all one and the same. The people who did this are SCUM. They aren’t human. They are the worst of an inbred fanaticist cult consumed with illogical hate. The world needs to boycott the country that is responsible for this. The world has to. Or they will be next when it comes time to defend their own interests. I wonder what economic cooperation was planned with Sudan? Was Russia about… Read more »

Lots of people in the world have high blood pressure. And this is the BBC we are talking about… The same BBC that was told by British PM Cameron “You get funding from the Government; under a charter managed by the government. You work for the government.” And that is when they turned me off. I don’t believe anything the BBC say anymore. My father inlaw, some of my friends; and an old work colleague all live over there and have all said it is literally a wast of time watching it. You can not trust them.” So, I don’t… Read more »

There must be far reaching, careful, slow inspections of everything related to the death of Mirgayas Shiriinsky. The Russia-phobia sickness enveloping the United States must be stopped forcefully by the US itself. Under International law, Russia phobic actions and the neo-Nazi propaganda the US manufactures daily in all of it’s “normal” media is active criminal behaviour that leads to war. Wars the the four US Generals now closest to President Trump, openly advocate as curing of the very hate the US media generate daily. Round Robin.

Can I suggest people calm down before leaping to conclusions here? I know at first glance it looks worrying – that’s why we need more than a first glance. To start with, we can exclude Ambassador to Turkey – we know about that murder, and it was aberrant. The other sickness ones, we have a grouping. 1. All are men of an older age group which all over the developed world carries a high proportion of deaths from cardiac, and related, disease. 2. Russia has improved it’s average life span, but still most of the these are within the span… Read more »

An update… The frequency of ‘accident’ for Russia diplomats compared to ‘other’ foreign diplomats is off the scale. This is an organised assassination plot. Who would benefit from such a plot? Sick.

Then you have the Alexandra Ensemble, Dr Lisa, and not forgetting President Putin’s chauffeur. This article is well worth reading, as it also ties in the words of John Kirby, State Department, stating about Russian Forces coming home in body bags, just before the plane crash that took out the Red Army Choir. Mike Morrell, the ex-Deputy of the CIA and Clinton choice, saying about leaving messages and not forgetting Nikki Haley, just before Vitaly Churkin collapsed on the streets of NYC, and what was it she said, if you did not cover the the back of the US?

Russia’s economy continues to outperform as gold takes center stage (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 118.

Alex Christoforou

Published

on

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris examine how US and EU sanctions have continued to provide a huge boost to Russia’s economy. Russia’s food sovereignty has practically been achieved, as the Russian central bank continues to buy gold and lower its exposure to western financial markets.

Via TASS…

Outside pressure in the form of sanctions has become an incentive to resolve various issues of Russia’s economy, Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev stated in an interview with the Izvestiya daily.

He noted that through introducing sanctions against Russia, “the West aims to destabilize Russia’s economy and to create social and political tensions in society.”

“But during the difficult times, Russians have always stuck together and mobilized their resources in order to ensure the country’s sovereignty. This is what is happening now – the outside pressure has become an incentive to resolve many problems in Russia’s economy,” he said.

“Before the sanctions, it seemed that we would never be able to feed ourselves and that we are doomed to be dependent on Western import. However, right now, Russia’s food sovereignty in crucial sectors has practically been achieved, and in some areas, Russia has become the leading exporter,” Patrushev noted.

Those who apply the sanctions “can see that they (the sanctions – TASS) are ineffective and often achieve the opposite goal,” the Russian security chief concluded.

US Neocon Foreign Policy and the War Waged Against Serbia

The Serbian assault began first by a ‘financial war’; by sanctions and finished off by an aggressive unprovoked incessant NATO bombing campaign.

Richard Galustian

Published

on

The ‘witch-hunt’ against President Trump over Russian collusion has officially ended, following the submission of the Mueller Report, enabling us to now focus on the real problems of America that effects the whole world.

In the hope of a waining of the Russophobia in America, let’s look at the US’s recent war history by starting with the 20th anniversary this month of the NATO war on Serbia in 1999 which amounted to almost 100 days of bombing of historic cities and infrastructure.

Firstly, these problems are, in the main caused by the Neocons, or Deep State, whatever you wish to call them, and the continuing promotion, by the US Military-Security Industrial Complex, of wars and regime change and secondly, Trump’s unreserved support for Israel, regardless of war crimes they may continue to commit against the Palestinians.

Incredibly after that one sided unjust and illegal war that NATO executed, NATO has the audacity to invite Serbia to join it! Something that will never happen. What do they smoke in DC, in the Pentagon and Brussels based NATO?

To compound these overall problems, the US Military and Israeli Defence Forces collaborate on these US regime change policies on all continents evidenced most recently by the arrival of crack Israeli troops last month in Brazil, prepared to support an attack potentially by Brazil and Columbia on Venezuela.

As, has now come to be expected, America pursues its Venezuelan regime change with full main stream media (MSM) cooperation, using well proven sophisticated propaganda techniques along with a variety of pretexts.

From Serbia to Iraq to Libya, where does it end? Observe that Trump is now seeking a ‘NATO alliance’ offering NATO status, to President Bolsonaro of Brazil to back the invasion of Venezuela.

So it is important to remember, as an example, that after a long war of economic and financial destabilization ended with the bombing of Serbia.

Serbia was previously a part of Yugoslavia, a country which had successfully evolved after 1945 to solve the old rivalries of the 19th and early 20th Century Balkan ethnic animosities which was, prior to the advent of power of President Tito, its past history.

The United Nations, instead of supporting, in effect, so called ‘humanitarian wars’ and ‘regime change wars’ by the US, using NATO, helped and relentlessly driven home by MSM outlets like CNN and FOX NEWS into people’s heads, must finally take a stand.

So too, Yugoslavia, once the envy of many in the world, given its then ‘non-aligned’ status under President Tito, was destroyed and broken up; ‘Balkanized’ in the early 1990s.

The Serbian assault began first by a ‘financial war’; by sanctions and finished off by an aggressive unprovoked incessant NATO bombing campaign. That’s what we can expect in Venezuela next.

This ‘Balkanization’ strategy similarly applies to Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria et al. It serves US Neocon interests to dismember States in the world and create smaller more ‘manageable’ countries.

‘Regime change’ runs against the intent, the very words contained in the US Constitution. No one in MSM ever reminds us of that fact. Nevertheless America’s ambition to overthrow other States continues, which they arrogantly now make no secret of. The next States will probably be Nicaragua then Iran to name but two.

A very noteworthy most recent outrageous unilateral declaration was made by President Trump, not yet formally agreed by US institutions, ‘giving’ something he has no authority to give; Syrian territory, the Golan Heights to be precise, to Israel. Something that one day could trigger a full scale Arab-Israeli War.

This is of extreme importance yet no real outcry comes from world leaders; well not so far.

The main reason for that decision given by senior US Administration figures is that “God anointed Trump to save the Jews”.

Not forgetting Trump’s need (which we the people don’t understand exactly why) to support Prime Minister Netanyahu in his difficult upcoming elections in Israel – in part because both countries failed to ‘regime change’ Syria – but more importantly to help the ‘financial terrorists’ who formed a company jointly that has already started drilling for oil in the Golan Heights. You might like to know who owns such oil drilling company which should answer a plethora of questions in one go that you must be asking yourselves.

The shareholder’s names tells us everything; Dick Cheney; Baron Rothschild and Rupert Murdoch. The titular heads of neocons, bankers and media on the planet.

In ending there is no more evidence required for us, the people of the world, to rise up against the globalist dark forces wherever they exist, be it in Brussels, London, France or Washington. We must demand democratic elections or start revolutions, the latter has already begun in France in the form of ‘the yellow vests’. And Brexit, by definition, is a rejection by the British people of globalism and American Hegemony.

The pattern of US destabilization and destruction of States to loot them of their sovereign resources is the unseen history of the last 100 years, not taught in any university, anywhere in the West.

As far as Ukraine is concerned, its government was taken down by the CIA and replaced by an ultra fascist regime that has full backing from America. This is no secret. But the MSM simple don’t report it.

US led NATO is ‘the transnational war machine’ of the world, devouring almost all free countries wealth. It can extort to terrorize all into conformity to the global ‘carcinogenic’ US Neocon imperialistic strategy.

A total estimated 20m people around the world have died since the end of WW11 at the hands of US Forces. Think about that for a moment.

One of the most famous sayings attributed to America’s great President Abraham Lincoln is about deception: “You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”

‘Dark day for internet freedom’: EU approves controversial copyright reform

Julia Reda, a German MEP with the Pirate Party, described it as a “dark day for internet freedom.”

RT

Published

Via RT


The European Parliament has voted to adopt the highly controversial Article 13 provision which would govern the production and distribution of content online under the auspices of increasing copyright protections.

Tuesday’s move will update the EU’s 20-year-old copyright rules and will govern everything from audiovisual content to memes, much to the dismay of many social media users who have already begun outpouring their grief online.

MEPs passed the legislation by 348 votes to 274 Tuesday. Opponents had hoped for last-minute amendments to be made but their efforts were in vain.

Julia Reda, a German MEP with the Pirate Party, described it as a “dark day for internet freedom.”

Article 13 or ‘The Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market’ makes all platforms legally responsible for the content hosted and shared on their platforms.

The process of updating the bloc’s copyright laws began in the European Commission two years ago, ostensibly to protect Europe’s publishers, broadcasters and artists and guarantee fair compensation from big tech companies.

By essentially forcing companies like Google, Facebook and Twitter to pay artists and publishers for the reproduction of their work online, include in meme format, the EU is effectively clamping down on online memery.

The onus will now be on tech companies to clamp down on content-sharing on their platforms, which will likely ensure yet more draconian policing of speech and content.

EU member states now have two years to pass their own laws putting Article 13 into effect.

Tens of thousands marched in protest across Germany ahead of the vote, decrying what they viewed as severe online censorship.

Tech giant Google said that while the directive is “improved” it will still lead to legal uncertainty and will damage Europe’s creative and digital economies.

Critics have argued that the only way for Article 13 to be effectively enforced would be through the use of upload filters which automatically check content to see if it’s copyrighted or not, at least in theory. However, the exact mechanics of such a system have yet to be fully debated and the potential for abuse is immediately clear.
