Vladimir Putin’s address following adoption of a joint statement by Russia and US on Syria
Kremlin Press Release – February 22, 2016 21:50
The President made a special address following the adoption of a joint statement by the Russian Federation and the United States of America, as co-chairs of the International Syria Support Group (ISSG), on the cessation of hostilities in Syria.
I just had a telephone conversation with President of the United States of America Barack Obama. The phone call was initiated by the Russian side, but the interest was certainly mutual.
During our conversation, we approved joint statements of Russia and the US, as co-chairs of the ISSG, on the cessation of hostilities in Syria. Adoption of the statement was preceded by intensive work by Russian and American experts. We also made use of the positive experience we accumulated over the course of cooperation in eliminating chemical weapons in Syria.
Our negotiators held several rounds of closed consultations. As a result, we were able to reach an important, specific result. It was agreed that the cessation of hostilities in Syria commences at 00:00 (Damascus time) on February 27, 2016 on terms and conditions that are a part of the Russian-American statement.
The essence of these conditions is as follows: by 12:00 pm on February 26, 2016, all parties warring in Syria must indicate to the Russian Federation or our American partners their commitment to the cessation of hostilities. Russian and American troops will jointly delineate the territories where these groups are active. No military action will be taken against them by the Armed Forces of the Syrian Arab Republic, Russian Armed Forces and the US-led coalition. In turn, the opposition will cease all military action against the Armed Forces of the Syrian Arab Republic and other groups supporting them.
ISIS, Jabhat Al-Nursa, and other terrorist organisations designated by the United Nations Security Council, are excluded from the cessation of hostilities. Strikes against them will continue.
It is fundamentally important that Russia and the US, as co-chairs of the ISSG, are prepared to launch effective mechanisms to promote and monitor compliance with the ceasefire by both the Syrian Government and the armed opposition groups.
To achieve this goal, we will establish a communication hotline and, if necessary, a working group to exchange relevant information. Russia will conduct the necessary work with Damascus and the legitimate Syrian leadership. We expect that the United States will do the same with regard to their allies and the groups they support.
I am sure that the joint actions agreed upon with the American side will be enough to radically reverse the crisis situation in Syria. We are finally seeing a real chance to bring an end to the long-standing bloodshed and violence. As a result, humanitarian access to all Syrian citizens in need should be made easier.
Most important is the creation of conditions for launching a long-term political process through a broad inter-Syrian dialogue in Geneva, under the auspices of the UN.
Unfortunately, recent history has many examples where one-sided actions not sanctioned by the UN, which favour short-term political or opportunistic interests, have led to dramatic results. These examples are on everyone’s lips: Somalia, Iraq, Libya, Yemen.
Against this background, Russian-American agreements on the cessation of hostilities in Syria, and their joint implementation in coordination with all nations participating in the International Syria Support Group, can become an example of responsible actions the global community takes against the threat of terrorism, which are based on international law and UN principles.
I would like to hope that the Syrian leadership and all our partners in the region and beyond will support the set of actions chosen by representatives of Russia and the US.
Former FBI and National Security Intelligence officer warns WWIII is 18 days away
Russia has publicly warned Saudi Arabia, the US, and other countries, they risk “a new world war” if they act on plans to send troops into Syria. WW3: 18 days away.
A member of Russian State Duma (Parliament) publicly stated that “If any foreign troops enter Syria without permission from the Syrian government, Russia will consider that a declaration of war.”
Russia issues warning to its citizens in Turkey: Leave right away
I am not certain if you are familiar with me, I am Hal Turner, a talk-radio host on WBCQ International Shortwave (7.490 MHz) and 95.1 FM in New York City, “SuperStation95.” I do not own this web site nor do I author any of the news or articles which appear here. This is my very first contribution to this web site’s content and I am taking this unusual step because something terrible is taking place: All of us are now in grave danger and it is imperative that you be told before it is too late.
National Security Intelligence Asset; FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force
First, some quick background on me: As some of you may already know, from 1993 through 2008, I worked for the FBI. From 2003 through 2008, I was a National Security Intelligence Asset with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF). I left the FBI in 2008 and a year later, was horribly betrayed by the Obama Administration who had me arrested for saying in public (in 2009), the exact same words the government paid me to say several years earlier in 2005! I am the only living American media personality ever imprisoned by the federal government for writing an Editorial they didn’t like!
After putting me on trial THREE times, driving me into Bankruptcy and replacing my lawyers with a public defender, they won at trial #3 and imprisoned me for 33 months in federal prison. I was released in 2012, was barred by court order from being on the radio for three years, and was then able to resume my radio show on October 7, 2015.
When I was put on trial in Brooklyn Federal Court, the third highest ranking official from the FBI in New York City, Assistant Special Agent in Charge (ASAC) Amy Pickett, testified in court that my role was “National Security Intelligence, Terrorism and Foreign Counter-Intelligence.”
I tell you all of this to make it very clear that my background in National Security Intelligence and Foreign Counter-Intelligence is such that when I tell you what I am about to tell you, please know it is 100% accurate fact.
We are 18 days away from World War 3
I am not certain if you had a chance to tune-in to my radio show last night. I spent the better part of an hour talking about the fast-developing situation in the Middle East regarding Syria. The short-and-sweet of it is that we are now in very grave danger. When I say “we” I mean me, you, our families, friends . . .country . . . . all of us. This is not an exaggeration.
President Barack Obama a “ Shia muslim”
I have been in regular contact with my former colleagues from the FBI and other government agencies and they concur with my analysis! We are very rapidly approaching a conflict the likes of which the world has not seen since the 1940’s and this one is highly likely to go nuclear very early. Tactical (Battlefield) nukes absolutely, positively, WILL be used. There is no avoiding it. I will explain why, below.

Here are the terrifying facts you need to know…
President Putin is Not the Enemy
Source: www.sosnews.org – by Brumbyy With 2Ys
Yet you wouldn’t know it as the western media play homage to the US onslaught of another sovereign nation – Syria – in their continuing quest to deconstruct peace in the Middle East. President Putin stands resolute in his nation’s political and military alliance with this long-time ally. Unlike the USA, Russia has had a pact with Syria for a very long time; maintaining a small naval base on the Levant – the only one Russia has in the Mediterranean.
The powder puff espousals of politicians around the globe including our own Australian foreign Minister Julie Bishop in response to the unmitigated act of the shooting down of a Russian fighter by Turkish forces; are enough in themselves to make one see how one sided the battle over terrorism has become.
- Turkey is blowing up the (PKK) Kurdish freedom fighters; who in turn are at present the only successful force taking it to ISIS on the ground.
- The USA is still blowing up hospitals of Doctors without Borders – Médecins sans frontiers; while attacking their latest duly-appointed foreign leader, Bashar Al Assad. Iraq, Libya, Ukraine with Iran still in the binocular view, have been and still are, transformed into war torn waste lands with no peace for the peoples of those nations on the horizon at all.
- Australia has a prime minister who is so wishy washy, he reveals his real self as a puppet of a – you said it – republican regime ensconced on the far side of the Pacific.
- Saudi Arabia – the home of Wahhabism and al Qaeda is busily bombing the hell out of the Houthi population in Yemen; these Houthi being the people of that nation who are fighting ISIS in their own back yard.
- The Syrian military are fighting a terrorist bunch of rebels in their own country – terrorists funded and armed by the USA and others – along with dealing with ISIS.
Two fighter pilots who have a supposed ally – Turkey – in this theatre of war, flying in the distance somewhere behind them, cowardly shoots them from the skies with air to air missiles as they concentrate on their Syrian based terrorist targets.
Now it’s all Putin’s fault; really??
So what will the Russian response be to this unprovoked murder of its two airmen; two aviators who after having their plane shot from under them, appear to have been murdered whilst descending under parachute by the very rebel militia Turkey supports.
NATO may well by treaty have to support Turkey in the face of any direct aggression this nation could face as a reprisal for such cold blooded murder, but I feel Mr Putin is way smarter than this.
Bashar Al Assad will dictate publicly so the world can hear, that he has asked for and will receive the necessary Russian military might to reclaim his nation. Further; he will order all foreign forces from his lands and upon a specific date, any such forces which are still on or above his nation will be deemed a combative transgression upon the Nation of Syria and be met with all the military force necessary to repel such aggression – a fair and just International right.
In other words; unless an agreement has been made with Russia – Russia then being the legal global power in control – the coalition forces under the command of the USA will face a real enemy and under International law, any transgression, after such a legal declaration by the right and proper leader of Syria, – like him or hate him – would indeed be a breach of International law by those aggressor/s.
Oh! and regardless of the future; god help any Turkish forces, including rebel terrorists Turkey supports – land, sea or air – who might enter Syrian territory.
As for the US special forces on the ground in Syria; well to gain entry to the USA there is a need for an application along with the very revealing documentation to be held just to have a chance at putting foot on their hallowed soil. I doubt the special-forces soldiers of the coalition have any official Syrian permission whatsoever to be inside the borders of that nation. Time to leave boys on the ground; this is no longer your fight and certainly not worth dying for by way of a bomb or missile which was never intended for you guys in the first place.
Watch the skies people as ICBMs are likely to rain from the skies over Syria.
Putin says global warming is a fraud
Russian President Vladimir Putin believes global warming is a “fraud” — a plot to keep Russia from using its vast oil and natural gas reserves.
Putin believes “there is no global warming, that this is a fraud to restrain the industrial development of several countries, including Russia,” Stanislav Belkovsky, a political analyst and Putin critic, told The New York Times.
“That is why this subject is not topical for the majority of the Russian mass media and society in general,” Belkovsky said.
Putin has been casting doubt on man-made global warming since the early 2000s, according to the Times. In 2003, Putin told an international climate conference that warming would allow Russians to “spend less on fur coats,” adding that “agricultural specialists say our grain production will increase, and thank God for that.”
Vladimir Putin, action man and Russia’s first pin up choice
Putin’s comments likely came after his staff “did very, very extensive work trying to understand all sides of the climate debate,” according to Andrey Illarionov, Putin’s former senior economic adviser, who’s now a senior fellow at the libertarian Cato Institute.
“We found that, while climate change does exist, it is cyclical, and the anthropogenic role is very limited,” Illarionov said. “It became clear that the climate is a complicated system and that, so far, the evidence presented for the need to ‘fight’ global warming was rather unfounded.”
The New York Times published an article on how the Russian media’s skepticism of global warming is being driven by Putin’s laissez faire attitude on the issue. The Times bashed the Russian autocrat for offering “only vague and modest pledges of emissions cuts ahead of December’s U.N. climate summit in Paris.”
Russia’s largely state-run media has spent little to no time covering global warming despite huge fires raging across Siberia. Instead of blaming the fires on warming, Russian news outlets tended to focus on “locals who routinely but carelessly burn off tall grasses every year, and the sometimes incompetent crews struggling to put the fires out.”
Such reasoning wasn’t good enough for the Times, which argued that “Russian media continue to pay little attention to an issue that animates so much of the world.”
Russian media leaders argue it’s not just the tone being set by Putin, but a weak economy and unemployment woes are a top concern of the Russian public — they don’t seem to care much about the weather.
“It is difficult to spend editorial resources on things that are now a low priority in the midst of the economic crisis,” Galina Timchenko, who runs a news site, told the Times. “Unfortunately climate change is not very interesting to the public.”
Low oil prices have hampered Russia’s economic growth, and spurred the Putin administration to take more action abroad, fomenting conflict in Ukraine and supporting the Assad regime in Syria. But at home, Russians are feeling the bite of cheap oil and western sanctions.

Prime Minister Tony Abbott with his blind adherence to US foreign policy and dialogue with the corrupt President Obama, is jeopardising future Australian trade with one of the world’s largest emerging economies after China. Russian trade is worth $400m a year mainly in agricultural products, but Putin has gone tit-for-tat with Abbott since he announced trade sanctions. Putin will easily side step the puny sanctions imposed by the West as this clip shows. Abbott should have stayed out of the wrangling over Ukraine between Russia and the Zionists backed by the US. Federal and State Liberals look like having their shortest ever terms in political history, but the unfortunate consequences will be another totally hopeless, corrupt and morally bereft Labor Party Government and lining us up for WW3.
Either ASIO and ASIS have fallen asleep at the wheel or Abbott has refused their advice about the real motives behind the two Malaysian Airline debacles.
