Putin Accuses “Foreign Spy Agencies” Of Supporting Terrorism To Destabilize Russia
Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge, Jun 28 2017

In the first public accusation that “foreign spy agencies” are seeking to destabilize Russia made in recent years, Pres Putin said during a meeting with Russia’s foreign intelligence agency that “some foreign special services” are directly supporting extremist and terrorist groups to destabilize the situation near Russia’s borders. Putin was quoted by Bloomberg as saying during the televised speech in Moscow on Wednesday:

In general, the growing activity of foreign special services against us and our allies is obvious. There are operations to influence the domestic political and social processes in our country.

Coicidentially, AP reported that according to an unclassified report by the DIA released on Wednesday:

The Kremlin is convinced that Pindostan is laying the groundwork for regime change in Russia, a conviction further reinforced by the events in Ukraine.

Thursday’s report reflects the Pentagon’s view of the global security picture shifting after nearly two decades of heavy Pindosi focus on countering terrorism and fighting relatively small-scale wars across the Middle East. Russia, in particular, is now at the center of the national security debate in Congress, fed by political divisions over how to deal with Putin and whether his military buildup, perceived threats against NATO and alleged election interference call for a new approach. Titled “Russia Military Power,” it is the agency’s first such unclassified assessment in more than two decades. According to AP, the 116-page report portrays Russia as increasingly wary of Pindostan. One almost wonders why. It says:

Moscow (suffers from a) deep and abiding distrust of Pindosi efforts to promote democracy around the world and what it perceives as a Pindosi campaign to impose a single set of global values. Moscow worries that Pindostan’s attempts to dictate a set of acceptable international norms threaten the foundations of Kremlin power by giving license for foreign meddling in Russia’s internal affairs.

The report also discusses recent military developments, with a focus on the middle east. It cites the example of Moscow’s 2015 military intervention in Syria. The Kremlin cast the effort as designed to combat Daesh. Faschingstein saw Moscow largely propping up Assad by providing air support for the Syrian army’s offensive against opposition forces. The report says Russia’s Syria intervention is intended also to eliminate Jihadi elements that originated on FSU territory, to prevent them from returning home and threatening Russia. In any case, the report says:

The intervention changed the entire dynamic of the conflict, bolstering the Assad regime and ensuring that no resolution to the conflict is possible without Moscow’s agreement. Nevertheless, these actions also belie a deeply entrenched sense of insecurity regarding a Pindostan that Moscow believes is intent on undermining Russia at home and abroad.

The report harkens to Cold War days when the intelligence agency published a series of “Soviet Military Power” studies that defined the contours of the superpower rivalry. Those reports ended with the 1991 demise of the Soviet Union. Now they return, DIA’s director, Marine Lt-Gen V R Stewart, says with an eye on the future of Pindo-Russian relations. Stewart wrote in a preface to the report:

Within the next decade, an even more confident and capable Russia could emerge.

No new, global ideological struggle akin to the Cold War is forecast, but the report cautions that Moscow “intends to use its military to promote stability on its own terms,” which is why the “deep state,” the Military-Industrial Complex, the neocons or whatever one wants to call the permanently bellicose wing in control, will never allow Trump to pursue a detente with Putin. To be sure, although Trump’s campaign rhetoric was widely seen as sympathetic to Russia, ties have not improved in his first six months of his presidency. In April, Trump said Pindo-Russian relations “may be at an all-time low.” Trump is expected to meet Putin for the first time at an international summit in Germany next week. Meanwhile, to perpetuate the anti-Russia witchhunt, on Wednesday Rep Adam Smith, the House Armed Services Committee’s top Demagog, issued a “national security manifesto” on Russia. He and a group of congress critturs writing in Time Magazine cited the threat of “Putinism,” which they termed “a philosophy of dictatorship” that seeks to extinguish democratic ideals such as government transparency by exploiting “discontented facets of democratic polities worldwide.” Which, of course, is not to be confused with CIA-ism, which is a philosophy of subverting any government around the globe with promises of globalist, credit-card driven expansion, and if that fails, with outright threats (and actions) to overthrow the existing regime by supporting its closest adversaries, both domestic and foreign. Taking McCarthyism to the next level, ranking Demagog Mark Warner said at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing Wednesday that Russia is becoming more brazen! Warner said:

Russia’s goal is to sow chaos and confusion, to fuel internal disagreements and to undermine democracies whenever possible, and to cast doubt on the democratic process wherever it exists.

In other words, Russia is becoming just like Pindostan! One can see why the Deep State and Demagogs are so terrified!

Trump To Meet With Putin Next Week At G20 Summit
Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge, Jun 29 2017

It appears that Trump has just officially scheduled his first kick-off planning session for the 2020 presidential elections as NBC News has confirmed that, after a bunch of back and forth, Trump and Putin will, in fact, meet next week at the G20 Summit in Hamburg. As Bloomberg notes, the meeting was confirmed by McMaster, though he declined to provide any details on the meeting’s agenda.

Pres Trump and Pres Putin will hold their first meeting as heads of state during the G20 summit next week in Hamburg. McMaster, who announced the meeting Thursday, declined to say whether Trump would raise the issue of Russian interference in last year’s Pindosi election when the two leaders meet. He said there was no specific agenda yet set.

Meanwhile, noting anonymous sources, The Graun reported overnight that White House aides have been asked to come up with “possible concessions” that can be used as bargaining chips during next week’s encounter.

Donald Trump has told White House aides to come up with possible concessions to offer as bargaining chips in his planned meeting next week with Vladimir Putin, according to two former officials familiar with the preparations. National security council staff have been tasked with proposing “deliverables” for the first Trump-Putin encounter, including the return of two diplomatic compounds Russians were ordered to vacate by the Obama administration in response to Moscow’s (supposed) interference in the 2016 election, the former officials said. It is not clear what Putin would be asked to give in return. The Trump administration was contemplating handing back the compounds in early May, initially in exchange for the Russian government lifting a freeze on construction of a new Pindosi consulate in St Petersburg, according to the WaPo. That link was reportedly dropped a few days later when Rex Tillerson met Sergei Lavrov, in Washington on May 10.

Of course, the news is less than 10 minutes old and we can already hear the faint cries of ‘collusion’ re-emerging from within the bowels of CNN HQ.
