I have talked many times about how Russia does things. One of the main things that they do is give warning shots over the bow…

Russia may withdraw from the strategic arms reductions treaty with the United States at any time if strategic weapons that appear in the future do not fall under the agreement, a senior Russian lawmaker said on Tuesday.

This is the fourth or fifth warning shot… (That means it is serious and pay attention!)

The explosion was definitely a terrorist act committed by a suicide bomber, investigators at the airport say. They believe a man wearing an explosive device was in the crowd of people meeting arriving passengers. There are reports that the bomb was packed with shrapnel…

Moscow saw its second suicide attack in less than 12 months on Monday as a terrorist assault on the Russian capital’s busiest airport left over 30 dead, officials said.

Preliminary reports suggest a bomb was detonated by a suicide bomber as passengers arrived at Domodedovo airport’s international arrivals gate at 4:40 p.m. (13:40 GMT).

Windows to Russia!

It seems that Russia, China, Ukraine, Belarus and South Korea to name a few, have all banned pork and pork products from Germany. They all gave Germany time to prove that dioxin was not present in German pork products. But as Germany has been unable or unwilling to supply such documentation. The importation has stopped, of all German pork products…

The so-called dioxin scandal flared up in early January because of the German Harles und Jentzsch Company, which used cheap inedible feeds instead of expensive edible fats. Some 5,000+  farms were closed down in Germany after dioxin was found in food fats. Dioxin is a poisonous substance that accumulates in the human body and may cause a number of grave illnesses to humans…

This is a big issue in Russia with the people. Sveta’s mother has worried because we like pork products. She stresses that we must make sure that it is not from Germany. The news for a few weeks now has been lit up with this scandal and it looks like it has come to roost, back on Germany…

What about the Western world, are you eating German Pork?

This should give a boost internally to Russian pork…

Well Russia is almost done changing the START Treaty to counter act the amendments that America did to the treaty when she ratified it last December…

It looks like the “START Treaty” has become the “Amended Treaty” and at this point it seems to be closer to a “Non Treaty” than a “Useful Treaty”…

This is a case of Treaty in and Trash came out. What the presidents signed many months ago is not the same document that is being ratified by Russia and America…

Do not be surprised if Russia leaves START in the future. The ground work has been laid for that escape from the START Treaty:

The head of the State Duma’s Foreign Affairs Committee, Konstantin Kosachov says the risk of failure always exists.“This time I believe this risk is quite obvious on the US side – that they will proceed with strategic, not regional, but strategic anti-missile defense systems – maybe not the current president, maybe not the current government, but probably the next president, the next government, which [could] have a completely different strategy on this issue,” he said. “And in case it happens, the treaty may be damaged and there may arise conditions for Russia to pull out of this treaty, but we are not there yet, and we still have time to make better agreements and to avoid any misunderstandings, and that will be our ambition.”

On this side of the world the understanding of the Treaty failing is common place and almost expected. The word is that this whole process needs to be reinitialized and begun again. Hence the statement above about “make better agreements and to avoid any misunderstandings” because this Treaty was a big misunderstanding between two countries… (At least from a Russian view point…)

The amendments that America instilled upon the document set the START Treaty back to the beginning. So a Russia, who was ready to ratify the original Treaty as it stood, now has serious reservations about the necessity and validity of the START Treaty…

Parliament approves terms of Russia’s quitting New START

Back in April of 2004, Ilyas Akhmadov was granted political asylum in the US where he currently resides. Ilyas Akhmadov has now recently published a book and it seems to be with the support of the US Federal Budget. That means it is supported by the Federal Government of the USA and that is where Russia gets perturbed…

The Russian Foreign Ministry has said that Ilyas Akhmadov “passing himself off as the Foreign Minister of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria is in fact a former militant who served as an aide for the international terrorist [Shamil] Basayev.” The Ministry also said that Akhmadov “is a criminal put on an international wanted list who is trying to redeem post factum the criminal regime of Dzhokhar Dudayev and Aslan Maskhadov” – the leaders of Chechen militants.

“Nevertheless, he [Akhmadov] is being provided with a platform in organizations such as the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) which are financed from the US Federal budget,” the Foreign Ministry added. “We expect that the US authorities draw respective conclusions and take measures to clamp down on such ambiguous events which virtually play into the hands of terrorists’ accomplices.”

Hummm, Does that sound like a good way for America’s tax money to be spent?

WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, has been granted a Russian visa and plans to visit Russia as soon as he gets his name cleared up. Which he hopes is soon. The trip may happen in a couple of weeks, reports the Russian News Service citing WikiLeaks supporter and friend of Assange, Israel Shamir. No details of the agenda and schedule have been disclosed. However, by that time a RuLeaks currently being established is likely to get its official registration… (It is starting to look as though RuLeaks may get some backing? Is that is why the site is so WikiLeaks clone like?)

It is already clear that Putin and Medvedev have voiced support for Julian Assange. Looks like Russia has open arms for Julian and maybe he needs to relocate. He would beable to continue his escapades very unhindered here in Russia. I know I live here…

Everything balances on what Britain is going to do. Because we know that America wants his dead head on a platter and Sweden has trumped up sex charges against him…

We will wait and see…
