Как комментирует ситуацию участник событий, эколог-активист Александр Гаврилин, радует, что сам начальник Электроуглинского отдела полиции Сухов Иван Владимирович по звонку/заявлению представителей свалки (ОАО Полигон «Тимохово») достаточно оперативно, чуть медленнее, чем скорая помощь, приезжает для разбора ситуации с теми людьми, которые якобы, вероломно вторглись на чужую территорию, и ,обидно, что он не видит, те нарушения, которые видны невооруженным глазом.

Protesters blocked off Yerevan's central railway station during a new wave of unrest due to parliament’s rejection of opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan as Prime Minister on Wednesday.

On April 23, the newly elected Prime Minister Sargsyan left his post, which sparked celebrations from opposition supporters.

China: Beijing aims for first DPRK visit by FM since 2007
2018-05-02 14:50
China's Foreign Ministry (MOFA) spokesperson Hua Chunying commented on the establishment of ties with the Dominican Republic and on Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s visit to North Korea, during a press conference in Beijing on Wednesday. The 'One China' principle states that Beijing alone represents China and that Taiwan is part of China. The aim of Wang’s two-day visit to North Korea would be “to follow through on the consensus reached by the two leaders and to set up the strategic communication and coordination,” Chunying said, referring to the North's leader Kim Jong-un and his southern counterpart Moon Jae-in's historic summit last week. Wang's trip to North Korea marks the first by a Chinese foreign minister since 2007. On Tuesday, the foreign ministers of China and the Dominican Republic signed an agreement establishing diplomatic links after the Caribbean country had moved to sever ties with Taiwan. «We haven’t intimidated anyone or made deals and there’s no need to do so. The establishment of diplomatic ties required only one promise, that the Dominicans would abide by the 'One China' principle,» ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said.

США дали еще месяц на продажу активов «РусАла», En+ и ГАЗа
2018-05-02 14:57
Министерство финансов США перенесло на месяц срок, в течение которого инвесторы должны отказаться от своих долей в трех российских компаниях, связанных с Олегом Дерипаской. Это позволило бы им в конечном итоге избежать американских санкций. Вечером 1 мая Вашингтон продлил сроки для энергетической компании En +, производителя алюминия «РусАл» и автомобильного завода ГАЗ для вывода инвестиций по сокращению доли Олега Дерипаски в каждой из этих компаний до 6 июня. Все три компании были включены в санкционные списки против близких к Кремлю олигархам. Санкции введены в связи с обвинениями о вмешательстве России в выборы президента США в 2016 году. En+ объявила на прошлой неделе, что Дерипаска откажется от части акций компании и уйдет в отставку с поста председателя ее совета директоров.

Midday Snapshot
2018-05-02 16:04
The morning session is over on this Wednesday, so let's see how things are shaping up for the market players. Euro/Dollar has been calmer than usual, the pair has walked in a total range of 45 pips. Traded volume is average and sentiment of the traders is neutral, short positions are up by 11%. Both sides have seen some chances, but the narrow price movement range is the limiting factor. Pound/Dollar rose by 87 pips after 6 AM and a gain of point 23% was posted at noon. The Cable has attracted 27% less than typical funds and most of them have been driven by bearish expectations. A rise that lasted for hours after 6 AM makes losses more likely for investors. Dollar/Yen has had a slow session, rate movement is flat and the pair sees just half of the monthly average funds. Most of the traders have been forecasting the pair to head higher, but the passive trading along the narrow price movement range suggest no significant moves in funds are likely. Pound/Yen shot up by almost 100 pips, but a correction has canceled out some of the gains. Turnover is low and neutral sentiment of the traders is close to an even balance. Rise puts bullish market players in better positions so far. Euro/Yen spiked hours into the session, but it has been mostly calm. Traded volume is extremely low at 59% down from the monthly average. Traders have been forecasting the pair to head higher, sentiment is strongly bullish. No significant moves in trading accounts are likely due to the flat rate movement and passive trading approach. I'm Kiays Khalil and this was the Midday Snapshot for Wednesday.

Syria: Feline lucky! Volunteers install tubes to feed stray cats in Damascus
2018-05-02 18:04
Syrian volunteers set up tubes across Damascus to feed stray cats, as footage filmed on Sunday reveals. The feeding tubes are filled with cat food and are attached to the bottoms of trees so that any stray cat can easily eat from there. According to the initiative organiser Maher Dakhakhni, the action was inspired by a similar one in Aleppo. He explained, «We started it around three weeks ago after I saw an initiative starting in Aleppo, where a team of young men distributed such tubes there. I saw that idea and I liked the matter of feeding cats on the streets.» Dakhakhni went on to say that the initiative started «on a small scale» but then expanded to a network of 1,200 volunteers», who he said are «buying tubes at their own expense, placing them next to their shops or houses and taking care of them by [supplying] food and water to stray cats living on streets, where there is no water or food.»

Belgium: European Parliament debates 'wolf pack' rape case
2018-05-02 23:10
The European Parliament debated whether member states are complying with internationally agreed definitions of rape, in the wake of the ‘wolf pack’ case currently engulfing Spain. Spanish Member of Parliament Tania Gonzalez called the session to demand countries adopt measures ratified under the Istanbul Convention, including the criminalisation of all non-consensual sexual acts. «Only yes means yes,» she told MEPs. Colleagues of Gonzalez lined up to denounce a legal system which seeks to differentiate between non-consensual sex that is violent or non-violent. MEP Iratxe Garcia pointed out that only nine European countries define rape as non-consensual sex regardless of whether violence or intimidation occurred. The 'wolf pack' case led to national outcry in Spain. Five men were accused of gang raping an 18-year-old woman during the San Fermin 'running of the bulls' festival on July 7, 2016. They were convicted for sexual abuse, instead of the more serious charge of rape. Judges ruled there was no violence or intimidation used in the act.
