«Путину нравятся диктаторы»: в США рассказали, почему российский лидер поддержал Лукашенко


Российский президент Владимир Путин занимается политическим троллингом. На фоне многочисленных акций протеста, вспыхнувших после несправедливых выборов, он прислал Александру Лукашенко поздравления с победой на выборах. Об этом пишет американское издание Bloomberg. Путину “нравятся” диктаторы, утверждает издание. Несмотря на то, что в последнее время Лукашенко оказывал Путину чуть ли не открытое сопротивление, углубляя связи с Китаем и арестовывая российских наемников, российский лидер продолжает оказывать ему поддержку. По мнению автора статьи, после прошедших в Белоруссии выборов Лукашенко попал в очень серьезные неприятности. Сфальсифицированные итоги выборов привели к массовым протестам в стране, демонстрации продолжаются, несмотря на отключение интернета и милицейские облавы. На этом …

Офицер в Индии назвал «механические проблемы» танка Т-90 причиной неудачи индийской команды на танковом биатлоне


В индийской прессе решили проанализировать танковую составляющую армии страны. Издание Financial Express, которое, казалось бы, никакого отношения не имеет к военной тематике, приводит своеобразный пример сравнения танков «Арджун» и Т-90. Автором материала является обозреватель Хума Сиддикви. Ссылаясь на высокопоставленного офицера вооружённых сил Индии, Сиддикви пишет, что у танка Т-90 «есть свои проблемы». Из статьи, где указано на “причину” неудачи индийских военных на танковом биатлоне в России: В ходе танкового биатлона, проходившего в России в августе 2017 года, когда танкисты из 19 стран соревновались в смоделированных условиях боя, чтобы определить, какой из экипажей лучше, индийская армия потерпела поражение из-за того, что …

В городах Грузии прошли акции «солидарности с народом Беларуси»


Из Грузии приходят сообщения об организованной акции «солидарности с народом Беларуси». Такой тезис можно было бы интерпретировать как акцию солидарности с теми 84% белорусских граждан, которые пришли на выборы и большинство из которых отдало голоса за действующего президента. Но, по понятным причинам, в Грузии подогреваются иные настроения. Одним из городов для проведения акции «солидарности» стал грузинский Батуми. Там собрались активисты с бело-красно-белыми флагами (сегодня это символ белорусской оппозиции), устроившие шествие по бульвару с призывами к отставке Лукашенко. При этом митингующие в Грузии пели песню группы «Кино» «Перемен», которую теперь соотносят с необходимостью политических изменений в жизни Беларуси. Собравшиеся на акции …

«Если нам не помогут, то выпроводим русских»: польское СМИ представило «мнение» Карабаха о военной базе в Армении


В Армении и, в частности, в Арцахе (Нагорном Карабахе), нарастает недоверие к России и высказывается недовольство её сближением с Турцией.
