1. Russia from mikenova (112 sites): Voice of America: Fact-Checking Site Supports Claim US Ranked as ‘Flawed Democracy’

A fact-checking site has verified claims circulating on the Internet that the United States has fallen in a ranking of world’s strongest democracies. Snopes.com issued the verification Friday, supporting an internet claim by a group called The Christian Left that “the USA has dropped off the list of the 20 most democratic countries in the world.” It cited an annual ranking by The Economist magazine, which has been evaluating the world’s governments on type and strength since 2006. The Economist’s most recent Democracy Index, its 2017 evaluation issued in January 2018, showed that the United States had for the second year been ranked as a “flawed democracy” rather than “full democracy.” The magazine said the fall in ranking was based on such factors as citizen participation in the electoral process, functioning of government and civil liberties. The United States’ ranking was stated somewhat incorrectly in The Christian Left’s claim circulating on social media. The United States was one of 20 nations in the world ranked as having a full democracy, until it fell to “flawed democracy” status. There are now only 19 nations on the list that The Economist ranks as full democracies. The publishers of the index say the drop in U.S. ranking is consistent with the stagnation of democratic progress around the world. It said 89 countries experienced a decline in their total score on the democracy index from 2016 to 2017, while only 27 countries recorded an improvement. The Economist called it the worst performance since 2010-11, when countries struggled in the aftermath of the global economic and financial crisis. Voice of America1. Russia from mikenova (112 sites)

News and Times from mikenova (14 sites): Mike Nova’s Shared NewsLinks: LONG Russia’s Patriarch Kirill Blames Istanbul Orthodox Church For ‘Schism’
 

mikenova shared this story from Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty.

The head of Russia’s Orthodox Church has blamed Orthodox leaders in Istanbul for prompting a schism, the worst crisis to face the religion in hundreds of years.

Patriarch Kirill on October 19 blasted church authorities — known as the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople — as “schismatic” for a decision earlier this month moving to grant independence to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.

The move pushed Moscow to break ties with the Constantinople Patriarchate, widely recognized as the spiritual authority of Orthodoxy.

“The Constantinople Patriarchate identified itself with schismatics,” Patriarch Kirill told a conference in Moscow.

“Uncanonically, violating all rules, it invaded our jurisdiction and forgave schismatics,” he added.

Ukraine has three Orthodox churches: the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate, and the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church.

The Moscow Patriarchate, which has the most believers in Ukraine, remains loyal to the Russian Orthodox Church. The Kyiv Patriarchate declared independence from the Russian church in 1992, but that has never been recognized by the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.

Earlier this month, however, Patriarch Bartholomew, who is considered the “first among equals” leader among Orthodox leaders, endorsed the Kyiv Patriarchate’s request for independence from Moscow.The Kyiv Patriarchate has not yet received the formal, final blessing to be autocephalous, or independent.

The move from Bartholomew prompted angry words from not only Russian church leaders, but also government officials.

On October 15, the Russian church announced it had decided to end its relationship with the Constantinople Patriarchate.

Several Orthodox churches in former Soviet republics, many of which are under the direct jurisdiction of the Russian Orthodox Church, also cut ties with the Constantinople Patriarchate.

Bartholomew’s move has added to tensions between Kyiv and Moscow, already high since Russia’s 2014 seizure of Crimea and the war in eastern Ukraine between government forces and Russia-backed separatists.

Reacting to the Russian Orthodox Church’s announcement, the press secretary of the Kyiv Patriarchate said, “Patriarch Kirill has personally been an architect of the schism in the Ukrainian church since 1991″ and that his conduct has “pulled all of Orthodox Christianity into conflict.”

There are an estimated 300 million Orthodox Christians worldwide, with the Russian church claiming to have the largest number of believers.

Настоящее Время: Вице-мэра Сочи арестовали по обвинению в коррупции

Басманный суд Москвы арестовал до 15 декабря первого вице-мэра Сочи Сергея Юрина. Его обвиняют в получении в качестве взятки двух квартир, за которые он выдал разрешение на строительство в городе. Вместе с Юриным на два месяца арестованы замдиректора департамента экономики и стратегического развития администрации Сочи Александр Иванов, бывший замначальника правового управления администрации Андрей Левентюк, и еще четыре человека. Всем им также предъявлены обвинения в получении взятки в особо крупном размере. При этом, как отмечает агентство “Интерфакс”, прокурор выступал против ареста Юрина, считая, что следствие не представило для этого достаточных обоснований. Сам вице-мэр Сочи на суде заявил, что не понимает обвинения и не имеет к квартирам, фигурирующим в деле, никакого отношения.

Crime and Criminology from mikenova (8 sites): InSight Crime: Continued Obstacles Threaten Future of FARC Peace Process in Colombia

Continued Obstacles Threaten Future of FARC Peace Process in Colombia

A transitional justice system formed after the signing of a historic peace agreement with Colombia’s FARC rebels to try former fighters for crimes committed during the country’s decades-long armed conflict continues to face obstacles, further threatening the possibility of achieving lasting peace in the country.

The Special Jurisdiction for Peace (Jurisdicción Especial para la Paz – JEP) was set up after the Colombian government and the now largely demobilized Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia – FARC) signed a peace agreement in 2016.

SEE ALSO: Coverage of FARC Peace

The purpose of the JEP is to “administer transitional justice and make known the crimes committed in the framework of the armed conflict before December 1, 2016,” according to the institution.

Below, InSight Crime looks at three obstacles that are hindering the JEP’s ability to move the peace process forward.

1. Former FARC Fighters Continue to Commit Crimes

Under the peace agreement, only former FARC fighters who did not commit crimes after 2016 can benefit from the JEP. However, since it was established, there have been reports of high profile former guerrilla members being included in the special jurisdiction’s list.

The most emblematic case is that of Seuxis Paucis Hernández Solarte, alias “Jesús Santrich,” who was a lead negotiator in the peace talks and was set to assume a seat in congress in April 2018.

Colombian authorities arrested Santrich in early April 2018 after the United States charged him with drug trafficking crimes committed after the 2016 peace agreement, making him ineligible to face justice through the JEP.

More recently, US authorities sanctioned another former FARC fighter for his alleged ties to the drug trade following the peace agreement.

On October 18, the US Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) announcedsanctions against former FARC rebel Pedro Luis Zuleta Noscué, alias “El Inválido.” The agency alleges that Zuleta Noscué “continues to supply narcotics to criminal groups such as Colombia’s Oficina de Envigado.”

US authorities allege that Zuleta Noscué has long controlled a drug trafficking corridor in southwest Cauca department where he supported the FARC’s drug trafficking activities. Cauca had the fourth-highest number of hectares used for coca cultivation in 2017, according to illicit crop monitoring datapublished in September of this year by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).

2. ELN Guerrillas on List of Demobilized FARC Fighters

Authorities in Colombia have in the past faced difficulties separating demobilizing FARC guerrillas with drug traffickers and other criminals trying to pass themselves off as FARC fighters in an effort to take advantage of the benefits awarded to the demobilized guerrillas as part of the peace agreement.

These problems persist today. JEP President Patricia Linares recently admitted that there are members of Colombia’s National Liberation Army (Ejército de Liberación Nacional – ELN) on the list of demobilized former FARC fighters, El Tiempo reported.

“I have information, which I myself have verified, that some of these people [ELN fighters] make up part of the Office of the High Commissioner for Peace’s lists that were prepared by the previous administration,” Linares said.

3. Tension with Colombia’s Attorney General’s Office

A new legislative proposal in Colombia has generated concerns from the JEP about their ability to adequately do their job. The proposal would limit the JEP’s access to confidential information, such as military, state, intelligence and counterintelligence operations that threaten to put the country’s national security at risk, Noticias Caracol reported.

JEP President Linares said that the legislation is “openly unconstitutional because it affects the [JEP’s] assigned transnational function.”

SEE ALSO: Colombia News and Profiles

The Attorney General’s Office and the JEP have also clashed over cases that don’t threaten national security, but rather raise questions about which institution has the authority and whether ordinary justice or transnational justice is the proper route to take. The Attorney General’s Office, for example, recently refused to hand over to the JEP information pertaining to assets seized from the FARC that could be used as part of reparations for victims of the armed conflict.

That said, relations between the two institutions appear to be improving. JEP President Linares recently met with Deputy Attorney General María Paulina Riveros. The two agreed to create a roundtable of sorts where the two entities can discuss solutions to the many issues that have stoked tensions between them, El Tiempo reported.

“The Government, Congress and Judicial Power are now paddling for the same side,” Colombia Attorney General Néstor Humberto Martínez Neira said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has contrasted the world’s response to the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi with its response to the poisoning of ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal, citing lack of proof in both cases.
 Speaking at the annual Valdai Discussion Club in Sochi, Putin said that despite a lack of evidence proving Russian involvement in the poisoning of Skripal and his daughter Yulia in March, punitive actions were immediately taken against Moscow. In

Amazon’s denials of the report and Apple sent a letter to Congress saying the report was without merit.
Apple earlier issued a lengthy, stern response on its company blog, saying in part:
“Apple has never found malicious chips in our servers. … Finally, in response to questions we have received from other news organizations since Businessweek published its story, we are not under any kind of gag order or other confidentiality obligations.”

M.N.: The “Chinese Mask” Unmasked:

“This did not happen. There’s no truth to this.” – Apple’s Tim Cook demands Chinese spy chip story to be retracted by Bloomberg

M.N.: This is the source of the Counterintelligence errors: the blatant politicization, which is quite evident in this case, it seems. We believe what our higher-ups  want or signal to us to believe, consciously and unconsciously, overtly and covertly. Can we have some explanation of this phenomenon? The problem is that it shifts the perceptions of preferences and priorities, and thus affects the process of identifying the adversary and their operations correctly. 

For example, where is the “ISIS” and the “100 Years Battle with it” now? Gone with the wind and with the winds, just a vague memory. Why was it not assessed correctly? Why was not assessed correctly the Soviet “Survivability Index” some years ago? 

Apple CEO Tim Cook has upped the ante in its denial of an investigative report claiming a Chinese spy chip was embedded into the tech giant’s servers, telling BuzzFeed News that Bloomberg must retract the story–“This did not happen. There’s no truth to this.”

Apple’s Tim Cook demands Chinese spy chip story to be retracted by Bloomberg

By Christopher Carbone | Fox News

Apple reveals massive new iPhone and Apple watch
Apple has finally unveiled its new iPhone XS Max along with a new Apple Watch.
Apple CEO Tim Cook has upped the ante in its denial of an investigative report claiming a Chinese spy chip was embedded into the tech giant’s servers, telling BuzzFeed News that Bloomberg must retract the story–“This did not happen. There’s no truth to this.”
“I was involved in our response to this story from the beginning,” Cook said according to Buzzfeed. “I personally talked to the Bloomberg reporters along with Bruce Sewell who was then our general counsel. We were very clear with them that this did not happen, and answered all their questions. … Each time they brought this up to us, the story changed and each time we investigated we found nothing.”

“There is no truth in their story about Apple,” Cook added in the interview. “They need to do that right thing and retract it.”
450 AMAZON EMPLOYEES PROTEST FACIAL RECOGNITION SOFTWARE BEING SOLD TO POLICE
Bloomberg issued a statement to Buzzfeed, saying it stands by its reporting, which included spending more than a year on the story and more than 100 interviews.
“Seventeen individual sources, including government officials and insiders at the companies, confirmed the manipulation of hardware and other elements of the attacks,” the spokesman told the news organization. “We also published three companies’ full statements, as well as a statement from China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. We stand by our story and are confident in our reporting and sources.”
Bloomberg Businessweek in its October story alleged that data center hardware used by Apple and Amazon Web Services, provided by server company Super Micro, was under surveillance by the Chinese government.
Amazon denied that its hardware had been compromised, the Department of Homeland Security said it had “no reason to doubt” Apple and Amazon’s denials of the report and Apple sent a letter to Congress saying the report was without merit.
Apple earlier issued a lengthy, stern response on its company blog, saying in part:
“Apple has never found malicious chips in our servers. … Finally, in response to questions we have received from other news organizations since Businessweek published its story, we are not under any kind of gag order or other confidentiality obligations.”

Настоящее Время: Вице-мэра Сочи арестовали по обвинению в коррупции

Басманный суд Москвы арестовал до 15 декабря первого вице-мэра Сочи Сергея Юрина. Его обвиняют в получении в качестве взятки двух квартир, за которые он выдал разрешение на строительство в городе. Вместе с Юриным на два месяца арестованы замдиректора департамента экономики и стратегического развития администрации Сочи Александр Иванов, бывший замначальника правового управления администрации Андрей Левентюк, и еще четыре человека. Всем им также предъявлены обвинения в получении взятки в особо крупном размере. При этом, как отмечает агентство “Интерфакс”, прокурор выступал против ареста Юрина, считая, что следствие не представило для этого достаточных обоснований. Сам вице-мэр Сочи на суде заявил, что не понимает обвинения и не имеет к квартирам, фигурирующим в деле, никакого отношения. Настоящее Время
Crime and Criminology from mikenova (8 sites): InSight Crime: Continued Obstacles Threaten Future of FARC Peace Process in Colombia

Continued Obstacles Threaten Future of FARC Peace Process in ColombiaA transitional justice system formed after the signing of a historic peace agreement with Colombia’s FARC rebels to try former fighters for crimes committed during the country’s decades-long armed conflict continues to face obstacles, further threatening the possibility of achieving lasting peace in the country.The Special Jurisdiction for Peace (Jurisdicción Especial para la Paz – JEP) was set up after the Colombian government and the now largely demobilized Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia – FARC) signed a peace agreement in 2016.SEE ALSO: Coverage of FARC PeaceThe purpose of the JEP is to “administer transitional justice and make known the crimes committed in the framework of the armed conflict before December 1, 2016,” according to the institution.Below, InSight Crime looks at three obstacles that are hindering the JEP’s ability to move the peace process forward.

1. Former FARC Fighters Continue to Commit Crimes

Under the peace agreement, only former FARC fighters who did not commit crimes after 2016 can benefit from the JEP. However, since it was established, there have been reports of high profile former guerrilla members being included in the special jurisdiction’s list.

The most emblematic case is that of Seuxis Paucis Hernández Solarte, alias “Jesús Santrich,” who was a lead negotiator in the peace talks and was set to assume a seat in congress in April 2018.

Colombian authorities arrested Santrich in early April 2018 after the United States charged him with drug trafficking crimes committed after the 2016 peace agreement, making him ineligible to face justice through the JEP.

More recently, US authorities sanctioned another former FARC fighter for his alleged ties to the drug trade following the peace agreement.

On October 18, the US Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) announcedsanctions against former FARC rebel Pedro Luis Zuleta Noscué, alias “El Inválido.” The agency alleges that Zuleta Noscué “continues to supply narcotics to criminal groups such as Colombia’s Oficina de Envigado.”

US authorities allege that Zuleta Noscué has long controlled a drug trafficking corridor in southwest Cauca department where he supported the FARC’s drug trafficking activities. Cauca had the fourth-highest number of hectares used for coca cultivation in 2017, according to illicit crop monitoring datapublished in September of this year by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).

2. ELN Guerrillas on List of Demobilized FARC Fighters

Authorities in Colombia have in the past faced difficulties separating demobilizing FARC guerrillas with drug traffickers and other criminals trying to pass themselves off as FARC fighters in an effort to take advantage of the benefits awarded to the demobilized guerrillas as part of the peace agreement.

These problems persist today. JEP President Patricia Linares recently admitted that there are members of Colombia’s National Liberation Army (Ejército de Liberación Nacional – ELN) on the list of demobilized former FARC fighters, El Tiempo reported.

“I have information, which I myself have verified, that some of these people [ELN fighters] make up part of the Office of the High Commissioner for Peace’s lists that were prepared by the previous administration,” Linares said.

3. Tension with Colombia’s Attorney General’s Office

A new legislative proposal in Colombia has generated concerns from the JEP about their ability to adequately do their job. The proposal would limit the JEP’s access to confidential information, such as military, state, intelligence and counterintelligence operations that threaten to put the country’s national security at risk, Noticias Caracol reported.

JEP President Linares said that the legislation is “openly unconstitutional because it affects the [JEP’s] assigned transnational function.”

SEE ALSO: Colombia News and Profiles

The Attorney General’s Office and the JEP have also clashed over cases that don’t threaten national security, but rather raise questions about which institution has the authority and whether ordinary justice or transnational justice is the proper route to take. The Attorney General’s Office, for example, recently refused to hand over to the JEP information pertaining to assets seized from the FARC that could be used as part of reparations for victims of the armed conflict.

That said, relations between the two institutions appear to be improving. JEP President Linares recently met with Deputy Attorney General María Paulina Riveros. The two agreed to create a roundtable of sorts where the two entities can discuss solutions to the many issues that have stoked tensions between them, El Tiempo reported.

“The Government, Congress and Judicial Power are now paddling for the same side,” Colombia Attorney General Néstor Humberto Martínez Neira said.

The Skripal Files by Mark Urban review – the Salisbury spy’s story

He did it for the money and still loved mother Russia … a fascinating book based on conversations with Sergei SkripalIn June 2017, Mark Urban drove to Salisbury to meet a retired Russian spy. Urban – a BBC Newsnight journalist and author – was contemplating writing a book about east-west espionage after the end of the cold war. The spy was Sergei Skripal. He had kept a low profile in Britain since arriving in 2010 as part of an international spy swap. There were no signs he was engaged in active espionage. Arriving at his modest suburban home, Urban spotted a stack of jigsaw puzzles and a fiddly Airfix scale model of HMS Victory. Another model, of an English country cottage, sat on a bookshelf – a gift from the MI6 agent who, two decades earlier, had recruited Skripal in Spain.Skripal was arguably the least well known of a small group of elderly defectors from Moscow living in the UK. The most famous, Oleg Gordievsky, betrayed the KGB for ideological reasons and did enormous damage to the Soviet espionage machine. If a list existed of traitors the Kremlin might wish to kill, Gordievsky’s name was surely at the top.One wonders if Skripal would have voted for Putin, given the chanceRelated: Putin allegedly gave Skripal poisoning suspect hero’s awardContinue reading…

Putin compares Khashoggi case to Skripal poisoning, asks why Russia condemned despite lack of proof

 Speaking at the annual Valdai Discussion Club in Sochi, Putin said that despite a lack of evidence proving Russian involvement in the poisoning of Skripal and his daughter Yulia in March, punitive actions were immediately taken against Moscow. In

The Skripal Files by Mark Urban review – the Salisbury spy’s story

He did it for the money and still loved mother Russia … a fascinating book based on conversations with Sergei Skripal

In June 2017, Mark Urban drove to Salisbury to meet a retired Russian spy. Urban – a BBC Newsnight journalist and author – was contemplating writing a book about east-west espionage after the end of the cold war. The spy was Sergei Skripal. He had kept a low profile in Britain since arriving in 2010 as part of an international spy swap. There were no signs he was engaged in active espionage. Arriving at his modest suburban home, Urban spotted a stack of jigsaw puzzles and a fiddly Airfix scale model of HMS Victory. Another model, of an English country cottage, sat on a bookshelf – a gift from the MI6 agent who, two decades earlier, had recruited Skripal in Spain.

Skripal was arguably the least well known of a small group of elderly defectors from Moscow living in the UK. The most famous, Oleg Gordievsky, betrayed the KGB for ideological reasons and did enormous damage to the Soviet espionage machine. If a list existed of traitors the Kremlin might wish to kill, Gordievsky’s name was surely at the top.

One wonders if Skripal would have voted for Putin, given the chance
