    Moscow issued a stern warning to the US on Friday against ramping up sanctions against Russia, saying the Kremlin will retaliate with economic, political and unspecified ďotherĒ measures. Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedevís warning reflects Russian fears over the impact of new restrictions on its economy and assets, including the ruble, which has lost nearly 6 percent of its value this week on sanctions jitters, according to Reuters. In a sign of how seriously Russia is taking the threat, strongman Vladimir Putin discussed what the Kremlin called ďpossible new unfriendly steps by WashingtonĒ with members of his Security Council. They said...

    The new US bill on anti-Russian sanctions will affect European countries cooperating with Russia in the energy sector, and, therefore, these restrictive measures can ultimately run counter to international law, German Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy, Brigitte Zypries, said in an interview with the newspapers, which are part of Germanyís Funke media group, published on Monday. "We believe this is a violation of international law," the minister said referring to the fact that the fresh sanctions may restrict companiesí activities in the EU. "America cannot fine German companies for doing business in another country," she said. "According to Zypries,...

    The victory of Donald Trump at US presidential election demonstrates the weakness of "classical" sociology in the face of the Internet because Hillary Clinton was leading in most sociological polls ahead of the vote, Russian presidential advisor for developing Internet German Klimenko told Life Zvuk radio station. "No one on the Internet asked or looked at what people answer. No one monitored how many people like Trumpís messages on Twitter. Thatís how we saw for the first time that old sociology turned out to be weaker that the internet, and Clinton lost," Klimenko said. Clintonís defeat was due to the...

    With the increasing propaganda wars, we thought a reminder of just how naive many Westerners are when it comes to their news-feed. As Arjun Walia, of GlobalResearch.ca, notes, Dr. Ulfkotte went on public television stating that he was forced to publish the works of intelligence agents under his own name, also adding that noncompliance with these orders would result in him losing his job. He recently made an appearance on RT news to share these facts: Iíve been a journalist for about 25 years, and I was educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth to the...

    That sounds more dramatic than it actually was. Turkey sent around 150 soldiers and two dozens tanks to Bashiqa, just northeast of Mosul in what Ankara described as an effort to replace an existing contingent of around 90 troops that have supposedly been on a "training" mission with the Peshmerga for the better part of two years. As we documented over the weekend, this is hardly the first time the Turks have entered the country. However, the circumstances are quite different this time around. That is, this isn't a anti-terror mission aimed at tracking the PKK. Over the weekend, we...

    MOSCOW, November 13. /TASS/. Russia’s government has refused to support a bill on re-introducing a progressive income tax drafted by A Just Russia Party, the Izvestia newspaper reported on Friday. Russia’s Economic Development Ministry believes that switching to this system may lead to resuming the use of the so-called shady schemes of avoiding to pay the tax, including by lowering the real salary figures, according to the newspaper. "Now there is stability in collecting this tax what is a rather important argument in favor of preserving the current income tax scale," a ministry representative, Elena Lashkina, told the newspaper.

    Germany now is somewhere at the edge of anarchy and sliding towards civil war, or to become a "banana republic without any government," says Hansjoerg Mueller of the Alternative for Germany party. Bavarian official Peter Dreier called German Chancellor Angela Merkel to tell her personally that if Germany welcomes a million refugees, his town of Landshut will only take in around 1,800. Any extra will be put on buses and sent to her Chancellery in Berlin. RT: He says he's going to send them to Berlin, but does he have the power? Hansjoerg Mueller: The person who wants to send...
