Hungary Approves Transit of Russian Military Goods to Serbia

Inspecting 10 newly arrived Russian armored vehicles at a Serbian Army base in Nis, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic thanked Russian President Vladimir Putin for “strengthening” Belgrade’s military.Flown to Serbia via Hungarian airspace aboard Russian transport planes, the small fleet of BRDM-2 reconnaissance vehicles were just one part of a much larger delivery.The remaining portion of that delivery, some 20 additional reconnaissance vehicles and dozens of refurbished Soviet-era T-72 tanks, was held up at the Romanian border. According to a statement by Romania’s Foreign Ministry, Romanian customs officials refused to allow their transit via the Danube River because of European Union sanctions imposed on Russia for its actions in Ukraine.Romania blocksAlthough Serbia expressed frustration about the blocked portion of the shipment, Romania, a member of both the EU and NATO, was simply enforcing EU-mandated trade restrictions.Hungary, also a member of both the EU and NATO, defended its decision to allow the transit of Russian equipment through its airspace despite sanctions.Addressing reporters in Budapest on Wednesday, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s chief of staff, Gergely Gulyás, said the shipment was approved because the cargo passed through Hungarian airspace in a civilian, not military, plane.”Of course we get notified about a civilian aircraft entering Hungarian airspace, but that’s a completely protocol-type of notification, which should just be acknowledged,” Gulyás said, explaining that non-military airspace transit doesn’t require special permission.Asked whether Hungary would be held to account for the violation, an EU spokesperson said: “We have seen reports. Without commenting on specifics, the implementation of EU restrictive measures is the responsibility of EU member states.”NATO officials, too, were reticent about Russia’s latest efforts to help Serbia beef up its military.”NATO fully respects the sovereign right of all countries, including Serbia, to choose their own political and security arrangements,” a NATO spokesperson told VOA. “At the same time, NATO and Serbia are partners. For instance, Serbia hosted our biggest civil emergency exercise, helping NATO Allies, as well as Serbia and other partners, to become better prepared to deal with natural disasters, such as flooding and forest fires.”Adding that NATO has been working with Serbia to reform security forces and institutions, “NATO training also helps Serbian soldiers contribute to international peacekeeping missions.””We have invested millions of euros to help Serbia to destroy over 200 tons of ammunition,” the spokesperson said.Military neutralitySerbia, which claims military neutrality, has already received six MiG-29 fighter jets from Russia and is negotiating additional arms purchases from Russia, including attack and transport helicopters and air defense systems.Some experts say a Russian-backed military build-up threatens peace in the politically fragile region.”I applaud Romania for enforcing the EU trade embargo on Russia,” Jorge Benitez, a NATO expert with the Atlantic Council, told VOA.”This is an important and much needed sign of European unity and backbone against Russia’s efforts to further militarize and destabilize the Balkans,” he said. “Other EU states should follow Romania’s example and fulfill their commitments to the European democracies. Permitting Russia to move more tanks to southeast Europe is dangerous and threatens the national security of all democracies in the region.”Serbia formally wants to join the EU, but under political and propaganda pressure from Moscow, Belgrade has steadily slid toward the Kremlin and its goal of keeping the countries in the Balkans out of NATO.In the 1990s during the bloody breakup of the former Yugoslavia, Serbia was at war with neighbors Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo.Speaking at Monday’s armored vehicle unveiling ceremony at the Serbian Army base in Nis — located some 88 kilometers east of the Kosovo border — Russia’s Ambassador Alexander Botsan-Kharchenko said that Moscow “is ready and will always be ready for military and technical cooperation with Serbia.”For President Vucic, all that appeared to matter was the hardware on the ground.”The most important thing for us is that we managed to transport the vehicles to Serbia,” Vucic told journalists. “How and which way they came, that is our business.”U.S. State Department officials had not yet responded to requests for reaction upon publication.This story originated in VOA’s Serbian Service.

Turkish Defense Industry Measures Price of Lost US Jet Contract

Washington’s suspension of the sale of its F-35 warplane to Turkey has dealt a severe blow to both the Turkish military and the Turkish defense industry. Ankara’s purchase of Russia’s S-400 missile system triggered U.S. President Donald Trump to suspend the sale of 100 F-35 jets to Turkey. The U.S. said the Russian missile system could compromise the jet’s stealth technology. The decision also ended the Turkish defense industry’s decade-long link to the project.Turkey’s defense manufacturers had a coveted position as joint partners in the $400 billion F-35 project. Turkish firms were set to earn around $10 billion producing around 900 parts for the aircraft, including critical components such as landing gear, and cockpit and fuselage parts.Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan addresses his ruling party members, in Ankara, Turkey, July 26, 2019.The development of an indigenous defense industry is a priority for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, vowing to turn Turkey into a world leader. The country is in the initial stages of developing its own fighter jet.Exclusion from the F-35 is seen as a significant blow to those aspirations.”In recent years, Turkey has one of the fastest-growing defense industries,” said Galip Dalay, a visiting scholar in international relations at Oxford University.”So, F-35 not coming, that puts major trouble for Turkey’s defense industry, unless the issue is resolved down the road.”Given the scale of Turkish firms’ involvement in the F-35, Erdogan repeatedly dismissed threats of exclusion, claiming Turkey was irreplaceable in the jet’s production.”We are proceeding with a very orderly wind-down (of Turkey’s participation in the program) through March 2020.  At this point … we are winding down in March of 2020,” said Ellen Lord, U.S. undersecretary of defense for acquisition and sustainment. This Nov. 14, 2013, photo, shows the main entrance of the Lockheed Martin plant in Goodyear, Ariz.Last week, Lockheed Martin, manufacturer of the F-35, also confirmed it was on track to meet the Pentagon’s deadline.Under the F-35 program, Turkey was to be one of the regional maintenance hubs for the jet, worth hundreds of millions of dollars to Turkish companies.Analysts point out the F-35 is one of world’s most advanced jets, and now Turkish firms will lose out on access to advanced technology and know-how. Ankara had also invested around a billion dollars in the jet project.Analysts warn that Turkey’s exclusion from the F-35 threatens to further deepen the rift between the country and its Western allies.”This will further push Turkey to seek more engagement with places like Russia, China, etc.,” said Dalay, who is also a research director of the al-Sharq Forum, an Istanbul-based Middle East research group. “But it’s true these countries are no replacement with the West in terms of the defense industry, in terms of institutional ties.””Recently, one of the (Turkish President’s) advisers, Gulnor Aybet, said we will also buy (Russia’s) S-500,” said international relations professor Huseyin Bagci of Ankara’s Middle East Technical University.Still in development, the S-500 is Russia’s latest missile system. Moscow has indicated a willingness to sell its most sophisticated weapons systems, a move analysts say is part of Russian attempts to weaken Turkey’s ties with its Western allies.This photo made from footage taken from the Russian Defense Ministry official website on Nov. 20, 2018, shows a Russian Su-57 fighter jet over Syria.Last month, Russia’s leading defense company suggested the possibility of selling its latest stealth fighter, the SU-57, as an alternative to the F-35. However, any such deal may offer limited advantages to Turkish defense companies.”The Russians will never share the brain of their systems. Never,” said Bagci. “We can produce certain parts of it here in Ankara, but not the system. The basic technology will remain in the hands of the Russians. The Chinese are different. They give to a certain degree.”With tensions escalating between Ankara and Washington, Moscow has sweetened the pot to Turkey, enhancing the technology transfer in the S-400 sale.A Russian-based analyst, speaking anonymously, claimed Russia’s military already has reservations about the sale of sophisticated weapons systems to Turkey, a NATO member. The analyst said Russian President Vladimir Putin, for now, overruled those concerns, prioritizing the strategic goal of courting Ankara.Washington retains considerable leverage over Turkey’s defense industry. Last year’s sale of 30 Turkish attack helicopters to Pakistan was blocked by the United States, with its refusal to grant an export license for the helicopter engines.Observers point out that given the interdependence of Turkey’s defense industry on U.S. and European parts, it could face similar problems in future international sales.However, Ankara could yet be holding on to the hope of reviving Turkey’s role in the F-35 project. Turkish officials point out its participation has only been “suspended,” not ended. Such a belief appears to be pinned on Trump. Analysts warn that given the speed the Pentagon is moving to end Turkey’s participation in the jet, expectations of a reversal in policy appear to be diminishing fast.

Boris Johnson in Belfast as Brexit Woes Weigh on UK Economy

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson met political leaders Wednesday in Northern Ireland, where he faces a doubly difficult challenge: restoring the collapsed Belfast government and finding a solution for the Irish border after Brexit.Northern Ireland’s 1.8 million people have been without a functioning administration for 2 1/2 years, ever since the Catholic-Protestant power-sharing government collapsed over a botched green-energy project. The rift soon widened to broader cultural and political issues separating Northern Ireland’s British unionists and Irish nationalists.Johnson was meeting with the leaders of the five main political parties in hopes of kick-starting efforts to restore the Belfast government.“My prime focus this morning is to do everything I can to help that get up and running again, because I think that’s profoundly in the interests of people here, of all the citizens here in Northern Ireland,” Johnson said.Yet opponents say Johnson can’t play a constructive role because his Conservative government relies on support from the Democratic Unionist Party, the largest of Northern Ireland’s pro-British parties. Without the votes of the DUP’s 10 lawmakers in London, Johnson’s minority government would collapse.Critics say that gives the pro-Brexit DUP an oversized influence with the British government that has unsettled the delicate balance of power in Northern Ireland.Mary Lou McDonald, leader of the Irish nationalist party Sinn Fein, accused Johnson of being the DUP’s “gofer.” “He tells us he will act with absolute impartiality. We have told him that nobody believes that,” she said.
 
Protesters greeted Johnson at Stormont, the seat of the suspended Northern Ireland government outside Belfast, including border residents, steelworkers at a Belfast shipyard threatened with closure and anti-Brexit demonstrators.Northern Ireland is key to securing the U.K’.s departure from the European Union and is likely to be among the hardest-hit areas if it goes wrong.A divorce agreement between the U.K. and the EU has foundered largely because of the complex issue of the currently invisible 300-mile (550 kilometer) border between Northern Ireland, which is part of the U.K., and EU member Ireland. An invisible border is crucial to the regional economy, and also underpins the peace process that ended decades of sectarian violence in Northern Ireland.Both Britain and the EU have promised there will be no hard border after Brexit, but they disagree about how to avoid it.The EU and Johnson’s predecessor, Theresa May, came up with a solution known as the backstop _ an insurance policy to guarantee an open border if no other solution can be found. But British Brexit-backers loathe the backstop because it locks Britain into EU trade rules to avoid customs checks, something they say will stop the U.K. from striking new trade deals around the world.Johnson became prime minister last week by promising pro-Brexit Conservatives that the U.K. will leave the EU on the scheduled date of Oct. 31, with or without a divorce deal.He is insisting the bloc make major changes to May’s deal, which was rejected three times by Britain’s Parliament. He says the backstop must be abolished and is refusing to hold new talks with EU leaders unless they agree.
 
Johnson sent his Europe adviser, David Frost, to Brussels on Wednesday to deliver that message in person. Downing St. said Frost would tell EU officials that “we will work energetically for a deal but the backstop must be abolished. If we are not able to reach an agreement, then we will, of course, have to leave the EU without a deal.”
 
The bloc is equally adamant that Brexit deal won’t be reopened and the backstop must stay.The stalemate has sent the pound plunging to its lowest levels in more than two years, as businesses warn that no amount of preparation can eliminate the economic damage if Britain crashes out of the bloc without a deal on exit terms and a transition period to smooth the way.The currency was trading Wednesday at 1.2161, up slightly from a day earlier but still its lowest level since March 2017.Business confidence has also been battered. Britain’s auto trade body said Wednesday that investment in the industry effectively stopped in the first half of this year amid no-deal fears.
 
The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders said companies made just 90 million pounds ($110 million) of new investments in January-June, compared with an average annual total of 2.7 billion pounds over the previous seven years. Car production dropped 20.1% in the first half of 2019.
 
“The fear of no deal is causing investors to sit on their hands,” said chief executive Mike Hawes.Since he took office a week ago, Johnson has been touring England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland but it has not been a triumphal parade.Britain’s 2016 vote to leave the EU has strained the bonds among the four nations that make up the U.K. A majority of voters in England and Wales backed leaving in the referendum, while those in Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to remain.Johnson has been booed by protesters I”the Scottish city of Edinburgh and the Welsh city of Cardiff and accused of playing “Russian roulette” with the agriculture industry by farmers who face high tariffs on their exports to Europe if there is a no-deal Brexit.

Huawei Remains No. 2 Smartphone Seller Despite US Sanctions

Huawei remained the No. 2 global smartphone vendor in the past quarter despite tough U.S. sanctions imposed on the Chinese technology giant, market trackers said Wednesday.The Chinese firm managed to boost its sales even as the overall market declined, remaining on the heels of sector leader Samsung and ahead of U.S.-based Apple.According to Strategy Analytics, overall global smartphone sales fell 2.6 percent to 341 million units in the April-June period, but showed signs of stabilizing after several quarters of declines.Samsung increased its market share to 22 percent, helped by a seven percent rise in handset sales, with growth seen in the mid-range and entry segments. The South Korean giant stayed ahead of Huawei, which was at 17 percent, and Apple at 11 percent of the market.FILE – The Samsung Galaxy Fold phone is shown on a screen at Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd.’s Unpacked event in San Francisco, Feb. 20, 2019.”Huawei surprised everyone and grew its global smartphone shipments by eight percent annually,” said Strategy Analytics executive director Neil Mawston.”Huawei surged at home in China during the quarter, as the firm sought to offset regulatory uncertainty in other major regions such as North America and Western Europe.”The research firm estimated that Apple, which released its results this week without details on unit shipments, saw an eight percent drop in iPhone sales in the quarter.”Apple is stabilizing in China due to price adjustments and buoyant trade-ins, but other major markets such as India and Europe remain challenging for the expensive iPhone,” said Woody Oh, director at Strategy Analytics.Huawei decline predictedA separate report by Counterpoint Research offered similar findings, showing Samsung, Huawei and Apple in the three top spots as overall sales fell.Analyst Tarun Pathak at Counterpoint said however the U.S. ban on technology sales to Huawei will have an impact in the coming months.”The effect of the ban did not translate into falling shipments during this quarter, which will not be the case in the future,” Pathak said.”In the coming quarters, Huawei is likely to be aggressive in its home market and register some growth there, but it will not be enough to offset the decline in its overseas shipments. This will further lead to the decline of the overall smartphone market in 2019.”The surveys indicated Chinese makers Xiaomi and Oppo holding the fourth and fifth spots, largely due to sales in their home markets.According to Counterpoint, the combined global smartphone market share of Chinese majors Huawei, Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi, and Realme reached 42 percent, the highest it has ever been.

Sagging Growth, Inflation Build Case for Europe Rate Cut

Inflation and growth have sagged in the eurozone, official figures showed Wednesday, bolstering the case for the European Central Bank to inject another dose of monetary stimulus into the 19-country currency bloc at its September meeting.The European Union’s statistics agency said that growth in the eurozone halved in the second quarter, to 0.2% and that inflation in July fell to an annual rate of 1.1% from 1.3% the previous month. The inflation figure is well below the ECB’s goal of just under 2% considered best for the economy.The ECB is moving toward adding more stimulus even as unemployment at 7.5% in June hit its lowest rate since July 2008.
 
Risks to growth, however, from the U.S.-China trade conflict have led the ECB as well as the U.S. Federal Reserve to lean toward cutting interest rate benchmarks the Fed is in fact set to cut its main interest rate later Wednesday for the first time since 2008 from its current range of 2.25%-2.5%.Additionally, employment is what economists call a trailing indicator it reflects past progress more than it points to the future. The ECB however must look ahead to ward off potential risks to growth and inflation from higher trade tariffs imposed by the U.S. and China as well as any disruption from a chaotic Brexit. Britain is due to leave the European Union on Oct. 31 and new Prime Minister Boris Johnson has indicated he is willing to do so without a divorce agreement, a development that would see growth-damaging tariffs imposed on traded goods.Analysts expect the ECB to deliver a stimulus package at its Sept. 12 meeting. That could include a cut in the deposit rate on money left overnight at the ECB by commercial from minus 0.4% to minus 0.5%. The unusual negative rate is in effect a penalty aimed at pushing banks to risk lending excess cash rather than let it pile up at the ECB.
 
ECB President Mario Draghi has also said the bank has tasked staff with studying a possible re-start of bond purchases, a step that pumps newly created money into the financial system. It was only last December that the ECB halted its nearly four-year bond-buying program that effectively pumped 2.6 trillion euros ($2.9 trillion) into the eurozone economy in an attempt to get inflation up towards the bank’s goal.But indicators have weakened since then amid ongoing uncertainty about whether U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese officials will reach a trade deal that would remove the threat of more tariffs.

У Росії опозиціонери планують два нові протести після масових затримань 27 липня

У Росії незалежні кандидати на виборах у Московську міську думу закликають своїх прихильників вийти на мирний мітинг у Москві 3 і 10 серпня.

Зокрема, незареєстрована кандидатка Олена Русакова подала заявку на проведення акції протесту 10 серпня, інша кандидатка Любов Соболь написала у фейсбуці, що опозиціонери готуються «до масового, мирного, але регулярного протесту».

Раніше опозиційні кандидати заявили, що вийдуть на акцію протесту і 3 серпня. Заявку на її проведення на Луб’янській площі подали члени Лібертаріанської партії. Московська мерія узгодила мітинг, але на проспекті Сахарова. Організатори не захотіли проводити свою акцію там.

Мерія Москви після цього офіційно попередила партію про відповідальність у разі проведення несанкціонованої акції в іншому місці. А генпрокурор Росії Юрій Чайка доручив вжити «ефективні заходи» для припинення «несанкціонованих акцій та інших порушень закону в період підготовки до виборів».

Слідчий комітет Росії 30 липня порушив кримінальну справу про масові заворушення після протестної акції 27 липня в центрі Москви, що, зокрема, передбачає позбавлення волі на термін до 15 років.

У двох учасників мітингу пройшли обшуки. За даними джерела російського державного агентства новин ТАСС, обшуки проводять співробітники служби із захисту конституційного ладу і боротьби з тероризмом ФСБ Росії, співробітники Головного управління з протидії екстремізму і Центру «Е».

Слідчий комітет 30 липня порушив кримінальну справу про масові заворушення після протестної акції 27 липня в центрі Москви. Ця стаття, зокрема, передбачає позбавлення волі на термін до 15 років.

У Москві 27 липня відбулася акція протесту з вимогою допустити до виборів у Московську міську думу понад 20 незалежних кандидатів. Протести жорстоко розігнали співробітники поліції і Росгвардії, затримали більше ніж 1300 людей, багатьох побили.

Після протестів 27 липня Слідчий комітет також порушив три кримінальні справи.

На 30 липня в судах було зареєстровано 278 адміністративних матеріалів. За 61 із них винесли рішення про адміністративний арешт, по 161 – про штраф.

Кличко зустрівся з ексмером Нью-Йорку та адвокатом Трампа Джуліані

Мер Києва Віталій Кличко зустрівся в США з колишнім мером Нью-Йорку, адвокатом президента США Дональда Трампа Руді Джуліані.

«На запрошення мого старого друга й одного з найавторитетніших мерів світу Руді Джуліані зустрівся з ним у Нью-Йорку. Обговорили ситуацію в Україні, перспективи подальшої співпраці США та України», – розповів Кличко.

Він додав, що під час розмови також торкнулися теми місцевого самоврядування.

«Домовилися, що наступного разу зустрічаємося з Руді в Києві», – зазначив мер української столиці.

24 липня речник прем’єр-міністра Василь Рябчук повідомив, що Кабінет міністрів отримав прохання від президента Зеленського звільнити Віталія Кличка з посади голови Київської міської державної адміністрації. Сам мер Києва заявив, що «здаватися не буде».

Згідно з Конституцією, голову Київської міської державної адміністрації призначає і звільняє президент за поданням уряду. Водночас відповідно до рішення Конституційного суду, Київську міську державну адміністрацію має очолювати лише особа, обрана Київським міським головою.

Віталій Кличко вперше обраний Київським міським головою з 5 червня 2014 року. Посаду голови КМДА він обіймає з 25 червня.

Кабмін має намір на найближчому засіданні розглянути подання на звільнення Кличка, повідомив минулого тижня прем’єр Володимир Гройсман.
