New US Sanctions to Be Directed at Putin Personally, Piontkovsky Says

Paul Goble

Staunton, November 19 The United States is now prepared to impose sanctions in the harshest possible form, Andrey Piontkovsky says, thus directly affecting not only the business and political entourage of Vladimir Putin but also — and in ways that change the nature of the game — the Kremlin leader himself.

On Youtube yesterday, the émigré Russian analyst says it is his impression that the August 2 sanctions law will be carried out in the harshest possible form and that what is the most revolutionary aspect of the law is that this will be the first case when the head of the Russian state will turn up on this list (youtube.com/watch?v=xvbRqX5fYG0&feature=youtu.be).

The inclusion of Putin on this list is significant, Piontkovsky says, because normally such sanctions are imposed only on absolutely hardened rogues and criminals like Milosevich, the Sudanese president, someone from Equatorial Guinea and so on. For Putin to be on this list and for the Americans to put him there is thus a breakthrough.

He adds that US President Donald Trump, although he has opposed this measure despite signing it, will not be able to interfere with the imposition of sanctions. This is a government law, and any effort to sabotage it will have the most serious consequences for the incumbent of the White House.

In other comments, Piontkovsky argues that the approximately one trillion US dollars in illegal earnings of Russians now stashed abroad must be returned to the first post-mafia government of Russia, something requiring more changes in Russia than just a move to a post-Putin one.

It is a mistake to over-personalize things in the Russian case, he suggests. Putin may leave office but the essence of this mafia system will not change as a result by that alone. But seizing the assets of Putin and other Russians held abroad via the new sanctions law will help promote the necessary changes in Russia and bring closer the day these assets can be returned.

Israel PM: Security Must Come First in Any Peace Plan
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he has made clear to the U.S. that Israel’s security concerns must come first as the White House tries to restart a peace process with the Palestinians. His comments Sunday came after Israeli news reports claiming to detail the peace plan under development.   At a weekly Cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said “we heard plenty of speculation this weekend” about President Donald Trump’s peace efforts. He then declined to comment, saying only that “my position on this plan will be determined according to Israel’s security and national interests.”   Trump took office with hopes of forging what he calls the “ultimate deal” between Israelis and Palestinians.   The last round of peace talks collapsed in 2014.

Turkish Capital Bans LGBT Cinema, Exhibitions
The Turkish capital Ankara has banned the public showing of films and exhibitions related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues, the governor’s office said on Sunday, citing risks to public safety. The move is likely to deepen concern among rights activists and Turkey’s Western allies about its record on civil liberties under President Tayyip Erdogan’s Islamist-rooted AK Party. “Starting from Nov. 18, 2017, concerning our community’s public sensitivity, any events such as LGBT… cinema, theatre, panels, interviews, exhibitions are banned until further notice in our province to provide peace and security,” the governor’s office said in a statement. It said that such exhibitions could cause different groups in society to “publicly harbour hatred and hostility” toward each other and therefore pose a risk to public safety. Authorities in Ankara had already banned a German gay film festival on Wednesday, the day before it was due to start, citing public safety and terrorism risks. In addition, gay pride parades have been banned in Istanbul for the last two years running. Unlike in many Muslim countries, homosexuality is not a crime in Turkey, but there is widespread hostility to it. Civil liberties in Turkey have become a particular concern for the West following the attempted military coup in July 2016. Since then, more than 50,000 people have been jailed pending trial on suspicion of links to the coup. Some 150,000 people have been sacked or suspended from their jobs. Human rights groups and Turkey’s Western allies fear Erdogan is using the coup as a pretext to quash his opponents. Ankara says the measures are necessary, given the extent of the security threat it faces.

Turkey hosts Russian, Iranian FMs ahead of Sochi talks

TurkishRussian and Iranian foreign ministers on Sunday met in Turkey’s Mediterranean city of Antalya ahead of a trilateral meeting on Syria, scheduled to be held in Russia’s Sochi city next Wednesday. On Saturday, high-ranking officials from the 
Arab League Foreign Ministers To Discuss Iran ‘Violation’
Arab foreign ministers are gathering in Cairo for an extraordinary meeting to discuss “violations” allegedly committed by Iran in the region.
Turkey Hosts Iranian, Russian Foreign Ministers as Turkish NATO Dispute Festers
Turkeys Foreign Minister Melvin Cavusolgu is hosting his Russian and Iranian counterparts at the Mediterranean Sea resort of Antalya to prepare the ground for Wednesdays summit in Russia to discuss Syria. Despite Ankara backing opposing sides to Tehran and Moscow in the Syrian civil war, they have been increasingly cooperating to resolve the conflict. The three countries armed forces are deployed in creating a de-escalation zone in the Syrian enclave of Idlib, one of last strongholds of rebels fighting the Damascus regime. Despite growing cooperation, the countries competing agendas are increasingly coming to the fore with the imminent defeat of Islamic State and rebel forces in the Syrian civil war. The meeting Sunday in Antalya is seeking to ease, if not resolve, those differences before the summit. The hastily arranged summit came out of disputes over Moscows plan to hold a Syrian conference. Reportedly Tehran is unhappy at Moscow hosting the event, while Ankara was enraged over an invitation being extended to the Syrian Kurdish militia the PYD. Ankara accuses the militia of being linked to a Kurdish insurgency in Turkey. But shared opposition to Washingtons policy in the region is providing a powerful impetus to ongoing cooperation between the three countries. The ‘zeitgeist’ or spirit of times, forces the countries not to go into confrontation but cooperation, said international relations professor Huseyin Balci of Ankaras Middle East Technical University. The United States arming of PYD forces in their fight against the Islamic State continues to deeply strain relations with its NATO ally Turkey. PYD controversy U.S.-Turkish differences over the PYD, are increasingly dictating Turkish foreign policy. At the moment all of Ankaras priorities have been put in the Kurdish basket, notes political columnist Semih Idiz of Al Monitor website, and that seems to be the guiding motive, whether its relations with Russia and also its relations with Iran. Cavusoglu is expected to press his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov during talks in Antalya to agree to allow Turkey to launch a military operation against the PYD forces in the Syrian Afrin enclave. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, addressing party supporters Sunday, promised a military operation would be launched to liberate Afrin. In the past few days, Turkey has been reinforcing its forces in the Syrian enclave of Idlib that borders Afrin. But with Russian soldiers deployed in Afrin, Moscows agreement to any attack is seen as crucial by Ankara. Moscow is competing with Washington for influence over the Syrian Kurdish forces. Russia has its own contacts to Kurdish politicians in the region, observes Zaur Gasimov an Istanbul-based Russia-Turkey analyst for the Max Weber Foundation, but [Moscow] is very concerned on pro-American mood among most Kurdish politicians. Analysts suggest Russia may view the threat of Turkish military action as important leverage to persuade Syrian Kurds to realize Moscow, rather than Washington, is the most useful ally. NATO relations But Ankaras courting of Moscow and Tehran is raising questions among its NATO partners. Turkish NATO relations received another blow, Friday, when Turkey withdrew its forces participating in a military drill in retaliation for slights made to Erdogan and the founder of the Turkish State Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, by other soldiers participating in the exercise. The incident continues to reverberate in Turkey. Erdogan Sunday dismissed an apology by NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg describing its as halfhearted. Reportedly Stoltenberg said those soldiers responsible for the slight had been dismissed. Anger against NATO is being whipped up in the Turkish media and has created a rare consensus in Turkeys deeply polarized world. Kemal Kilicdarolgu, leader of the main opposition CHP, joined in the condemnation of NATO. While Turkeys Culture Minister Numan Kurtulmus described the incident as an example anti-Islamic and anti-Turkey phobia. NATO and in particular the United States are viewed with deep suspicion among many Turks, and analysts point out such verbal attacks offer politicians an easy opportunity to score points with the electorate. With Turkey due to hold general and presidential elections by 2019, polls that are predicted to be close, the growing anti-Western nationalist rhetoric and policies are seen likely to continue. Foreign policy in Turkey under the ruling AKP Party, it really has become an extension of domestic policy, observes political columnist Idiz. In such a political climate the NATO controversy could have far reaching effects, Turkey currently has more than one serious problem with the U.S., the locomotive force of NATO, warned Murat Yetkin editor of Turkeys Hurriyet Daily News, these problems are causing a rift between the two countries, prompting both Americans and Turks to question the long-running alliance between their countries.

Europeans More Inclined to Identify Russians as European than Russians Are, New Poll Finds

Paul Goble

Staunton, November 19 A new survey by Germanys Körber-Stiftung finds that while only 41 percent of Germans and 38 percent of polls do not consider Russia part of Europe, a slightly higher percentage of Russians 44 percent say that they do not consider their country part of Europe.

Moreover, the survey found that Germans and Poles are far more ready to say that a rapprochement of the West and Russia is important or very important 95 percent and 80 percent respectively than are Russians. Only 66 percent of Russians made similar declarations (koerber-stiftung.de/pressemeldungen-fotos-journalistenservice/russland-in-europa-kalter-krieg-in-den-koepfen-1187.htmland dw.com/ru/опрос-принадлежит-ли-россия-к-европе/a-41323799).

The Körber Foundation poll also identified some important value differences among the populations of these three countries. According to the survey, 86 percent of Germans, 83 percent of Russians, but only 56 percent of Poles said that showing hostility to foreigners was something now wrong.

The three also diverged about the role of the mass media and its relationship to the state. The poll found that 76 percent of the Russians said that the task of the media is to support the government and report its decisions to the population. Only 53 percent of the Poles, and 43 percent of the Germans shared that view.

At the moment all of Ankaras priorities have been put in the Kurdish basket, notes political columnist Semih Idiz of Al Monitor website, and that seems to be the guiding motive, whether its relations with Russia and also its relations with Iran. Cavusoglu is expected to press his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov during talks in Antalya to agree to allow Turkey to launch a military operation against the PYD forces in the Syrian Afrin enclave. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, addressing party supporters Sunday, promised a military operation would be launched to liberate Afrin. In the past few days, Turkey has been reinforcing its forces in the Syrian enclave of Idlib that borders Afrin. But with Russian soldiers deployed in Afrin, Moscows agreement to any attack is seen as crucial by Ankara. Moscow is competing with Washington for influence over the Syrian Kurdish forces. Russia has its own contacts to Kurdish politicians in the region, observes Zaur Gasimov an Istanbul-based Russia-Turkey analyst for the Max Weber Foundation, but [Moscow] is very concerned on pro-American mood among most Kurdish politicians. Analysts suggest Russia may view the threat of Turkish military action as important leverage to persuade Syrian Kurds to realize Moscow, rather than Washington, is the most useful ally. NATO relations But Ankaras courting of Moscow and Tehran is raising questions among its NATO partners. Turkish NATO relations received another blow, Friday, when Turkey withdrew its forces participating in a military drill in retaliation for slights made to Erdogan and the founder of the Turkish State Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, by other soldiers participating in the exercise. The incident continues to reverberate in Turkey. Erdogan Sunday dismissed an apology by NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg describing its as halfhearted. Reportedly Stoltenberg said those soldiers responsible for the slight had been dismissed. Anger against NATO is being whipped up in the Turkish media and has created a rare consensus in Turkeys deeply polarized world. Kemal Kilicdarolgu, leader of the main opposition CHP, joined in the condemnation of NATO. While Turkeys Culture Minister Numan Kurtulmus described the incident as an example anti-Islamic and anti-Turkey phobia. NATO and in particular the United States are viewed with deep suspicion among many Turks, and analysts point out such verbal attacks offer politicians an easy opportunity to score points with the electorate. With Turkey due to hold general and presidential elections by 2019, polls that are predicted to be close, the growing anti-Western nationalist rhetoric and policies are seen likely to continue. Foreign policy in Turkey under the ruling AKP Party, it really has become an extension of domestic policy, observes political columnist Idiz. In such a political climate the NATO controversy could have far reaching effects, Turkey currently has more than one serious problem with the U.S., the locomotive force of NATO, warned Murat Yetkin editor of Turkeys Hurriyet Daily News, these problems are causing a rift between the two countries, prompting both Americans and Turks to question the long-running alliance between their countries.

Europeans More Inclined to Identify Russians as European than Russians Are, New Poll Finds

Paul Goble

Staunton, November 19 A new survey by Germanys Körber-Stiftung finds that while only 41 percent of Germans and 38 percent of polls do not consider Russia part of Europe, a slightly higher percentage of Russians 44 percent say that they do not consider their country part of Europe.

Moreover, the survey found that Germans and Poles are far more ready to say that a rapprochement of the West and Russia is important or very important 95 percent and 80 percent respectively than are Russians. Only 66 percent of Russians made similar declarations (koerber-stiftung.de/pressemeldungen-fotos-journalistenservice/russland-in-europa-kalter-krieg-in-den-koepfen-1187.htmland dw.com/ru/опрос-принадлежит-ли-россия-к-европе/a-41323799).

The Körber Foundation poll also identified some important value differences among the populations of these three countries. According to the survey, 86 percent of Germans, 83 percent of Russians, but only 56 percent of Poles said that showing hostility to foreigners was something now wrong.

The three also diverged about the role of the mass media and its relationship to the state. The poll found that 76 percent of the Russians said that the task of the media is to support the government and report its decisions to the population. Only 53 percent of the Poles, and 43 percent of the Germans shared that view.

Another Thing Putin and Trump Share: Support for Makhaevism

Paul Goble

Staunton, November 13 Makhaevism, a phenomenon Lenin denounced a century ago, is making a comeback not only in Russia but in the United States and for the same reason: those who view the educated as the key problem and most appropriate target for attack are less inclined to go after their class enemies, the wealthy, exactly what the latter want.

The way in which the draft tax bills in the US Congress target those whose work is based on educational achievement and who seek to improve themselves via higher education to the benefit of those who are in business or even more those who live on the basis of unearned income has attracted widespread comment in the US.

And the attacks by Donald Trump on expertise and education per se have enjoyed remarkable resonance among many working-class Americans, especially given that these attacks have been accompanied by the American presidents insistence than any talk about increasing income inequality is a form of impermissible class war.

 

Now the same thing is happening in Russia, where Vladimir Putin and his regime are encouraging attacks on intellectuals of various stripes, portraying them as a fifth column or worse, in order to distract attention and make illegitimate any criticism of the wealth Putin and his entourage have gained for themselves (novayagazeta.ru/articles/2017/11/13/74527-goppi).

In the American case, this phenomenon hasnt been given a name; but in the Russian one, some have suggested goppi or gopniki — although in both a far better and more descriptive term would be Makhaevism, the term of abuse its opponents a century ago gave to the attitude of working-class Russians that the intelligentsia was more culturally alien than the rich.

What was called Makhaevism then reflects the attitudes of many working-class people across the world today and also and especially importantly to the way wealthy leaders are exploiting this anger in ways that ultimately work against that interests of those who feel it than do many of the terms now applied to the various tectonic shifts taking place around the world.

On the one hand, hostility to educated cultural elites explains the voting and polling behavior of workers better than class interests. Thus, many working-class people in many places view such elites as alien and out of touch with their needs even while supporting those who have or have gained great wealth.

But on the other, one of the basic failings of Makhaevism, its lack of a solution to this problem except to call for a permanent general strike by the workers against the educated, points to an outcome that history has seen before: the rise of authoritarian populism which in the name of protecting the workers from the alien cultural elite ends by defending those in power.

The term comes from the denunciations by Lenin and then Stalin of the writings of Jan Waclaw Machajski (1866-1926), a Polish Marxist of anarcho-syndicalist tendencies. (For background, see Paul Avrich, What is Makhaevism? Soviet Studies, July 1965, available online at theanarchistlibrary.org/library/paul-avrich-what-is-makhaevism; Marshall Shatz, Jan Wavlaw Machajski (Pittsburgh, 1989), and Albert Parrys introduction to the collection of Machayskis writings collected and republished as Umstvennyy rabochy(New York, 1968).

Lenin first denounced Machajski and Makhaevism both because the Polish writers argument was fundamentally non-Marxist in that it viewed cultural and educational divides as deeper than economic ones and because it threatened Lenins Bolshevik Party which included far more intellectuals than workers.

In the early and mid-1920s, Stalin joined in that denunciation, viewing it as a useful tool in his campaign against his better educated opponents in the Bolshevik party by playing to the hostility of many workers and peasants against a class they often despised as those who wore glasses and deserved to be killed rather than listened to.

Later in the mid-1930s, after he had vanquished his more educated Old Bolshevik opponents and sought to promote support for the new Soviet intelligentsia, Stalin too joined in the denunciation of Makhaevism among the Soviet population as something antithetical to the interests of Marxism-Leninism.

Now, however, the term and the phenomenon it refers to not only have re-emerged but with the support of the leaders of two important countries to the detriment of the futures of the people in both.

Voice of America: Youth Justice Shake-Up after Abuse Inquiry in Australia
An inquiry in Australia is recommending the closure of a youth detention center involved in an abuse scandal that shocked the nation. Images of inmates being mistreated – including one teenage boy who was restrained and placed in a spit hood – were shown last year. Last year, a TV documentary showed images of young detainees being tear-gassed and strip-searched in youth detention facilities in Australias Northern Territory. The scandal prompted the authorities to set a royal commission, the highest form of inquiry in Australia. Its final report contains more than 2,500 pages and demands sweeping changes to address the “shocking and systemic failures in the Territorys youth justice system. A teenage detainee told the investigating team that he had been deprived of food, repeatedly strip-searched and stopped from using a toilet during his detention. He said he was forced to defecate into a pillowcase. The report said that the systems failures had happened “over many years and were known and ignored at the highest levels”. Northern Territory Chief Minister Michael Gunner is promising to act on the proposals. I am sorry [for] the stories that will live on in those children who were in our care, children that we have failed because our youth justice and child protection systems are supposed to make our kids better, not break them, he said. The report calls for an end to detention for children aged under 14 in the Northern Territory, prohibiting the use of tear gas and force on child inmates and a move away from punishment to therapy and rehabilitation. The Northern Territory’s notorious Don Dale youth detention center, where much of the mistreatment of child inmates took place, should also be closed the report says. Margaret White, one of the commissioners, said more humane alternative accommodation should take its place. The point must be met that there will be some young people who must be kept in secure detention either because of the extreme seriousness of the crimes that they commit, or because of their own complex needs, and we have recommended a small, secure facility. We do not want any more than 12 beds in any one facility, she said. Most of the teenage inmates in the Northern Territory are Aboriginal Australians, who are significantly over-represented in the justice system. The children who were tear-gassed have said they feared for their lives and still suffer disturbing flashbacks and nightmares. Lawyers said detaining children in isolation was also a clear violation of the United Nations Convention against Torture.Voice of America
Voice of America: Turkish Capital Bans LGBT Cinema, Exhibitions
The Turkish capital Ankara has banned the public showing of films and exhibitions related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues, the governor’s office said on Sunday, citing risks to public safety. The move is likely to deepen concern among rights activists and Turkey’s Western allies about its record on civil liberties under President Tayyip Erdogan’s Islamist-rooted AK Party. “Starting from Nov. 18, 2017, concerning our community’s public sensitivity, any events such as LGBT… cinema, theatre, panels, interviews, exhibitions are banned until further notice in our province to provide peace and security,” the governor’s office said in a statement. It said that such exhibitions could cause different groups in society to “publicly harbour hatred and hostility” toward each other and therefore pose a risk to public safety. Authorities in Ankara had already banned a German gay film festival on Wednesday, the day before it was due to start, citing public safety and terrorism risks. In addition, gay pride parades have been banned in Istanbul for the last two years running. Unlike in many Muslim countries, homosexuality is not a crime in Turkey, but there is widespread hostility to it. Civil liberties in Turkey have become a particular concern for the West following the attempted military coup in July 2016. Since then, more than 50,000 people have been jailed pending trial on suspicion of links to the coup. Some 150,000 people have been sacked or suspended from their jobs. Human rights groups and Turkey’s Western allies fear Erdogan is using the coup as a pretext to quash his opponents. Ankara says the measures are necessary, given the extent of the security threat it faces.Voice of America

Voice of America: Britain to Submit ‘Brexit Bill’ Proposal Before December EU Meeting
Britain will submit its proposals on how to settle its financial obligations to the European Union before an EU Council meeting next month, finance minister Philip Hammond said on Sunday. British Prime Minister Theresa May was told on Friday that there was more work to be done to unlock Brexit talks, as the European Union repeated an early December deadline for her to move on the divorce bill. “We will make our proposals to the European Union in time for the council,” Hammond told the BBC. Last week, May met fellow leaders on the sidelines of an EU summit in Gothenburg, Sweden, to try to break the deadlock over how much Britain will pay on leaving the bloc in 16 months.   She signaled again that she would increase an initial offer that is estimated at some 20 billion euros ($24 billion), about a third of what Brussels wants.Voice of America

Voice of America: Pope Devotes Mass to Poor, Calls Indifference a ‘Great Sin’
Celebrating Mass with poor people, Pope Francis is denouncing “indifference” as a great sin. St. Peter’s Basilica on Sunday was filled with poor people as well as prelates as the Catholic church marked its first “World Day for the Poor.” Francis decried those who contend that poverty’s “not my business, it’s society’s fault.” He told faithful that a lifetime of “doing nothing wrong isn’t enough” and called helping the world’s poor the “passport for Paradise.” He said people will enter Heaven “not for what you have, but for what you give” to the needy. Francis has invited 1,200 poor people to join him for a lunch of pasta, veal and dessert in a Vatican auditorium after Mass. Paying attention to those on society’s margins is a hallmark of his papacy.Voice of America

Voice of America: ZANU-PF Dismisses Mugabe as Party Leader
Zimbabwe’s ruling ZANU-PF party dismissed President Robert Mugabe Sunday as leader of the party and has installed former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa as the party’s new chief. Mugabe had dismissed Mnangagwa as vice president of Zimbabwe last week. Party leaders have also expelled Mugabe’s wife, Grace, leader of the ZANU-PF Women’s League, from membership in the ruling party. If Mugabe does not willingly step down from the presidency, impeachment is a possibility, the opposition’s parliamentary chief whip Innocent Gonese told the Associated Press. The MDC-T leader said MDC-T and ZANU-PF had been in discussions to act jointly. “If Mugabe is not gone by Tuesday, then as sure as the sun rises from the east, impeachment process will kick in,” Gonese said. On Saturday, thousands of exuberant Zimbabwean demonstrators flooded the streets of Harare, some of whom marched toward the official residence of Mugabe amid nationwide protests calling for the his resignation. The protesters some carrying signs that said, “Mugabe must go!” and “Not coup but cool” came within 200 meters of the gates to the complex and staged a sit-down protest after being halted by national troops. The State House is where Mugabe is under official house arrest and where negotiations for Mugabe’s departure have taken place. “This is not fair. Why are soldiers preventing us to march to the State House,” said 26-year-old Rutendo Maisiri. “It is wrong. We will stay put.” Mugabe’s nephew, Patrick Zhuwao, told Reuters Saturday his uncle and his uncle’s wife were “ready to die for what is correct.” Speaking from an undisclosed location in South Africa, Zhuwao said Mugabe had no plans to resign in order to validate what he described as a coup. Zhuwao said his 93-year-old uncle’s health was “good,” although he has gotten little sleep since the military seized control on Wednesday. The military has stopped such demonstrations in the capital in the past, but is now supporting the protests, directing demonstrators to the Zimbabwe Grounds where speeches were made by activists, politicians, and former freedom fighters calling for the president to resign. The Zimbabwe Grounds is a symbolic location. It is where Zimbabweans welcomed Mugabe’s return from exile in 1980 after the liberation war from white minority rule. Demands intensify Members of opposition groups are expressing frustration with the pace of negotiations over Mugabes political future. Christopher Mutsvangwa, chairperson of the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association, told journalists that the protests are designed to push the president out of office. Former prime minister Morgan Tsvangirai, who leads the Movement for Democratic Change party, joined the calls for Mugabe to resign. Mr. Robert Mugabe must resign, step down immediately in line with the national sentiment and expectation, taking full regard of his legacy and contribution to Zimbabwe, pre and post Zimbabwe, said Tsvangirai, who returned to the country last week from South Africa, where he is being treated for cancer. Mugabe hanging on There has been no indication Mugabe will voluntarily give up power. Nick Mangwana, who is the Britain-based representative of ZANU-PF, told VOA that, “President Mugabe remains President Mugabe as of now. Mugabe is the only leader the nation has known since Zimbabwe won independence in 1980, and has turned back many previous challenges to his rule, often using the army, police and physical violence from supporters to intimidate opponents. His hold appeared strong even as Zimbabwes economy, which has struggled for years, suffered a new downturn over the past 12 months. Last December, the ruling ZANU-PF party nominated him as its presidential candidate for the 2018 elections. The turning point was the firing of Mnangagwa, 75, a liberation war hero who maintains strong support among veterans.Voice of America
ХРОНИКА ДНЯ – Настоящее Время: Мугабе отправили в отставку с поста лидера правящей партии
Президента Зимбабве Роберта Мугабе сместили с поста главы правящей в стране партии ЗАНУ-ПФ, на его место назначен бывший вице-президент Эммерсон Мнангагва, передает BBC. Официально Мугабе остается президентом Зимбабве, хотя реальную власть в стране контролируют военные после начала “операции по задержанию преступников” в окружении президента. Из партии исключили жену президента Грейс Мугабе. Мугабе, который правил Зимбабве в течение 37 лет, оказался под домашним арестом после того, как военные захватили ключевые правительственные здания и студию государственного телевидения в среду, 15 ноября. Были арестованы ключевые министры правительства страны. Захватившие власть офицеры отрицают, что в стране произошел военный переворот, и называют свои действия операцией по борьбе с “криминальными кругами”, которые контролировали, по мнению военных, действия президента. Накануне в столице страны Хараре и в других городах прошли массовые митинги в поддержку действий армии и за отставку Мугабе. Участники демонстраций не скрывали свои эмоции, когда говорили о необходимости политических и экономических изменений после двух десятилетий репрессий и лишений при правлении Мугабе, передают агентства Reuters и AFP.ХРОНИКА ДНЯ – Настоящее Время

Voice of America: Israel PM: Security Must Come First in Any Peace Plan
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he has made clear to the U.S. that Israel’s security concerns must come first as the White House tries to restart a peace process with the Palestinians. His comments Sunday came after Israeli news reports claiming to detail the peace plan under development.   At a weekly Cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said “we heard plenty of speculation this weekend” about President Donald Trump’s peace efforts. He then declined to comment, saying only that “my position on this plan will be determined according to Israel’s security and national interests.”   Trump took office with hopes of forging what he calls the “ultimate deal” between Israelis and Palestinians.   The last round of peace talks collapsed in 2014.Voice of America
