    'It's All a Fantasy': Steven Seagal Blasts 'Russian Collusion,' Talks Friendship With Putin, Siberian Governor's Race Rumor

    American action star Steven Seagal, who holds citizenship in the U.S. and Russia, and spends a lot of time in the country, reacted to the Trump-Russia collusion narrative, his friendship with President Putin and a rumor that he is considering a run for governor of Siberia.

    Seagal said that the Siberian rumor was the product of "fake news" reporting on a joke he made while visiting Vladivostok.

    He said that a man recognized him, and shouted that Siberia did not have a governor and asked if the actor would take the role. Seagal said he responded in jest but that the media took it seriously.

    "One of the millions of the fake news sort of stories," Seagal, whom Putin has designated a "special envoy" to the United States, said.

    Regarding the collusion narrative, Seagal said that it is a situation where "there is a tremendous amount of propaganda against Russia."

    Russia’s top diplomat warns Ukraine won’t be able to hold NATO drills in Azov Sea

    October 18, 2018
    The top diplomat says that owing to a bilateral treaty signed by Kiev and Moscow, Ukraine won’t be able to hold joint NATO drills in the Sea of Azov because this will require Russia’s consent

    MOSCOW, October 18. /TASS/. Owing to a bilateral treaty signed by Kiev and Moscow, Ukraine won’t be able to hold joint NATO drills in the Sea of Azov because this will require Russia’s consent, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in an interview with RT France, Paris Match and Figaro on Thursday.

    "Now Ukraine wants to hold NATO drills in the Sea of Azov but it will be impossible to go there because our treaty with Ukraine requires mutual consent for the passage of warships into the Sea of Azov," Russia’s top diplomat specified.

    "But they want this and they are being actively goaded into this," Lavrov stressed.

    NATO is already highly active near the Russian borders, the Russian foreign minister noted.

    "[We are witnessing] an arms build-up on our borders along with the drive to upgrade the transport infrastructure in Europe so that it can be easier for US heavy armaments and, perhaps, the armaments of other NATO countries to choose our borders; [in addition to] blatantly provocative drills - not ours with China in Siberia - but military exercises in Ukraine, Georgia and in the Black Sea," Russia’s top diplomat emphasized.

    Ukraine has been actively holding military drills with NATO on its soil since 2014. The Clean Sky-2018 aviation drills are running in the Khmelnitskaya Region in Ukraine from October 8-19 with the participation of the air forces from Belgium, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Estonia, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania and the United States.

    Also, Kiev has been lately laying its claims to the Sea of Azov where military activity is regulated by an agreement with Russia. Exercises by the Ukrainian armed forces were held on the coast of the Sea of Azov in October.

    It's surely difficult nowadays for NATO to find a quiet area where they can exercise their peaceful drills...

    Russian Prime Minister: USSR lived for decades under sanctions
    Saturday, October 20, 2018

    Russia is not going to persuade Europeans to lift anti-Russian sanctions, said by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev at the press conference following the talks with Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, TASS reported.

    “Lifting sanctions is a mutually beneficial matter and we should not persuade our partners to cancel anything, we don’t need it,” Medvedev said.

    He also said that “our European colleagues need it, they should start an initiative themselves”.

    “If they don’t want to, we will continue living with sanctions,” he added.

    The prime minister recalled that sanctions are not ‘a matter of life and death’ for Russia. “We did not start imposing these sanctions and it is not us who should terminate them,” he added. The head of the Cabinet noted that the USSR lived for decades under sanctions and ‘nothing happened’.

    Earlier, Medvedev cited data showing that the total loss of the European Union is about 100 billion euros. He announced in May that it was impossible to cancel the Russian counter-sanctions.

    “It is impossible to do it. Of course, there should be mutuality. I am not even speaking about the fact that the sanctions on food imports were greeted by our farmers,” he said.

    THE LORD at the recent Valdai Discussion Club meeting did tell a Russian cheesemaker that he shouldn't expect to be sheltered from competition forever. Indicating market forces do sharpen a businesses practices and lead to improvements in results/product developments and the old days of not being paid, for not working, are history.
