In Ukraine, they expressed concern about the frequent refusals of the Georgian authorities to allow Ukrainian citizens to enter the country. This question was voiced by the Commissioner of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine for Human Rights Lyudmila Denisova in her Telegram channel.

The reason for concern was the refusal of entry to Georgia to Ukrainian journalist Dmitry Gordon. Also, the Georgian authorities did not allow Maria Barabash, the executive director of the Office of Simple Solutions and Results created by Mikhail Saakashvili, to enter the country. On October 26, lawyer Yevgeny Grushovets, who was going to represent Saakashvili’s interests, was also denied entry to Georgia.

But, according to Denisova, not only the citizens of Ukraine listed above, but also many other Ukrainians were refused entry into the country. Those who tried to enter Georgia, Denisova noted, were forcibly returned to Ukraine.


Saakashvili got “black tights”: who will win the elections in Georgia

The starving ex-president made a bet on the supporters of Gamsakhurdia

On Saturday, Georgia is holding the second round of municipal elections, including the mayoral elections of the five largest cities. It is important in whose hands the capital will be. Will the General Secretary of the ruling Georgian Dream party Kakha Kaladze remain mayor of Tbilisi, or will he be replaced by the head of the United National Movement (UNM) Nika Melia? The founder of the UNM, Mikhail Saakashvili, from the Rustavi prison, called on his supporters to fully mobilize and said that his life depends on the outcome of the elections. Literally.

As you know, Saakashvili, who illegally entered Georgia and was arrested, went on a hunger strike in prison. However, some strange. It turned out that until October 29, he was taking some kind of “treatment to ease the hunger strike,” passed tests and cooperated with a medical council appointed by the government. And on the eve of the election from all thisrefused. So now his hunger strike continues in full. “I want you to know that the continuation of my life depends entirely on your decision tomorrow and Georgia’s victory.” – the ex-president addressed his supporters. He also called on them to gather at polling stations in the evening after the election to “protect their votes.”

   Is Saakashvili seriously putting his life on the line, or is this another election trick? His girlfriend Lisa Yasko writes in social networks about the critical state of his health. Of course, Saakashvili does not want to die in any case. He is not one of those who sacrifice his life for the sake of an idea. Moreover, for the sake of the second round of local elections,which will not fundamentally change anything. The elections, as the first round showed, Saakashvili’s party lost. Most likely, the election of the mayor of Tbilisi will also blow. Both the country and the capital will remain in the hands of the “Dream”. Saakashvili is not a hero, he is a psychopath suffering from narcissistic personality disorder. So it may well play too much – and finish playing.

   Representatives of the Georgian authorities do not believe in Saakashvili’s hunger strike and call it a “show”, suggesting that it will end on October 30, after the elections. However, Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili said that according to the law, Saakashvili, like any other person, has the right to commit suicide. “If a person decides to commit suicide, he has the right to do so, but the state, of course, will not be able to take responsibility for it.” – said the prime minister.

   Suddenly, Saakashvili’s support came from a completely unexpected side. Alla Dudayeva, the widow of another ex-president, Chechen, more precisely, Ichkerian, Dzhokhar Dudayev, addressed the Georgian people with a message in which she writes about the “Georgia-loving heart” of Mikhail Saakashvili, which “may not stand and stop at any moment.” In her opinion, “the pro-Russian government of Bidzina Ivanishvili” (???) deceived the Georgian people hundreds of times. In particular, by such deception, according to heraccording to the opinion, there was a “video with “brooms” and “provocation in the Lopota gorge”. Of course, Alla Fyodorovna, an artist and poetess, soars high above reality and, perhaps, piously believes that there was some kind of “provocation” in the Lopota Gorge, and they did not rape in prisons under Saakashvili. But the events in Lopot have been investigated for a long time, everyone knows well what happened there, including the Chechens in Pankisi. They know well who killed their young tribesmen, and what role Saakashvili’s closest associates played in this story.

  I just want to exclaim: “Holy simplicity!” – and she also believes that everyone who votes for the “Dream” has sold out for money. But do not treat this letter as the ravings of an elderly lady who has lost her mind. It is clearly focused on a specific target audience. These are, firstly, Chechens – both Kistins in the Pankisi Gorge, and those who fled to Georgia during the war and became its citizens. And secondly, they are Zviadists (supporters of the first president Zviad Gamsakhurdia. They still remain, although they have aged considerably.For the most part, these are Megrels who live in the western regions of Georgia. For them, the widow of Dudayev means a lot, who at one time gave shelter to Gamsakhurdia after his overthrow and flight from Georgia. The Megrelians are a very significant and very active part of the Georgian people. By the way, the rose revolution in 2003 won thanks to them. Saakashvili then agreed with some leaders of the Zviadists, and people were brought from Megrelia to Tbilisi in buses – for a decisive rally, which ended with the seizure of parliament.

   A Georgian analyst recently very aptly said that the most terrible and destructive role in the history of Georgia was played by women 40-50 years old. They were the main “fan club”, first Gamsakhurdia, then Saakashvili. Exalted, with problems in their personal lives (either there is no husband, or a cold, indifferent, or even a drinking husband, ungrateful children), they splashed out on their adored idols streams of their unspent libido. It was they who chanted: “Zviadi! Zviadi!” and then “Misha! Misha!” Squadrons of fanatical ladies, in the early 90s everywherefollowing Zviad, for some reason they were called “black tights”. Saakashvili seems to have got his own “women’s battalion”. Like Zviad’s fans, they do not see his true face at close range. Saakashvili, like a true narcissist, creates an illusory world around himself in which he is a real fighter for democracy, in August 2008 Russia attacked Georgia, the events in the Lopotsky Gorge are a provocation of Moscow, Ivanishvili is an FSB agent and pays 50 lari for people to go to rallies. You can live in this altered reality for years – but the awakening will be terrible.


Lavrov almost provoked a scandal in Norway by taking a valuable relic

During the visit of Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to Norway, an awkward situation occurred that almost turned into a scandal, but this was avoided, Aftenposten reports. Lavrov had a conversation with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom Anniken Witfeldt during lunch in Tromso. She decided to show him a family heirloom – the casket of her grandfather, who was captured by the Germans along with Soviet soldiers.

Russian Russian poet Witfeldt noted that in captivity, her grandfather learned Russian and learned to read Russian poetry. Therefore, the box has become a symbol of friendship between the two peoples. “Therefore, I would like to show you this casket, which stands at our house as a precious memory,” the Norwegian minister addressed Lavrov and handed him the casket.

However, Lavrov understood Witfeldt so that they decided to give him this box. “Thank you for this priceless souvenir. He will find his place in the museum of our ministry,” Lavrov said. Witfeldt responded with a smile.

As it turned out, Lavrov still returned her grandfather’s casket to the minister, and there was no scandal in relations between the countries. The Norwegian Foreign Ministry told reporters that it was a “slight misunderstanding.”


Kiev reported a reduction in the transit of Russian gas by a third


The head of the company «Operator of the Gas Transportation System of Ukraine » Sergey Makogon announced a reduction in gas transit from Russia. According to him, since November 1, volumes have decreased by a third to 57 million cubic meters per day.

Makogon noted that this is already half the capacity paid by Gazprom. According to him, the volume of transit is constantly decreasing.

“Despite the loud statements, the volume of transit from Russia to the EU is constantly decreasing,” the head of the company wrote on his Facebook.

The previous decrease in volumes occurred on October 1. It amounted to 86 million cubic meters. At the same time, Gazprom pays for transit capacity in the amount of 109 million cubic meters per day.

Makogon noted that with such volumes of imports, the Russian holding will not deliver 5 billion cubic meters to Europe by May.

There is a contract between Russia and Ukraine, according to which from 2021 to 2024, the Russian side can pump 40 billion cubic meters per year through the Ukrainian GTS. “Gazprom” pays for the capacity regardless of the actual volume of transportation.

Putin refused to speak in person at the climate summit in Glasgow


Dmitry Peskov told reporters that Vladimir Putin will not be able to take part in the climate summit in Glasgow, which will be held this week.

“Unfortunately, the president will not be speaking in Glasgow. There is no possibility of speaking via videoconference,” he said.

At the same time, the press secretary of the president said that a conference on the use and conservation of forests will be held within the framework of the summit, and Vladimir Putin has already recorded an address to its participants. 

Peskov recalled that the topic to be discussed in Glasgow “largely echoes the climate theme at the G20,” and in his speech Vladimir Putin realized the opportunity to outline in detail the approaches of the Russian Federation on this issue.  

Responding to Joe Biden’s criticism that Russia and China “de facto did not appear (at the G20 summit) in terms of any commitments to combat climate change,” Peskov said that Russia was very actively involved in the work of the G20, and speeches  Putin’s comments were very informative. In addition, weeks earlier, the Russian president outlined a benchmark for the transition to hydrocarbon neutrality.”  

“Russia has clearly outlined its prospects, and in many respects is already ahead of many countries, including Western Europe, in switching to less carbon-intensive production methods,” Peskov stressed.

The reason for canceling the live broadcast of Biden’s meeting with the Pope was named

“Recorded videos and audio can always be cleaned up with the blessing of Francis”

On the night of October 29, the plane of the President of the United States Joe Biden landed at Rome airport, who arrived in Europe to participate in the G20 summit. The first stop of the American leader in the framework of the European tour was the Vatican, where the head of the White House will meet first with Pope Francis, then Biden plans to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron, Italian President Sergio Mattarella and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi.

The US President’s plane landed in Rome at 02.24 local time (03.24 Moscow time). The American leader, along with First Lady Jill Biden, went down to the Italian and American officials who met them, and then got into the motorcade.

The first stop in the framework of the European tour of the head of the White House was the Vatican, where he was expected to have an audience with Pope Francis. Two of the world’s most famous Catholics (recall that Joe Biden is the second Catholic president in the history of the United States) planned to discuss the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change and poverty.

This is Biden’s first visit to the Vatican since his election as the head of the American state, but at the same time his fourth meeting with Pope Francis.

The US President is very proud of his Catholic faith and often uses it as a moral guideline for building many social and economic strategies. However, Biden’s support for abortion rights and same-sex marriage has led to his disagreements with many American bishops. Some of them even suggested banning the head of state from receiving communion.

White House press Secretary Jen Psaki, anticipating the president’s visit to Rome, said that she expects a “warm and constructive dialogue” between Biden and the pontiff. “The President and Pope Francis agree that their opinions coincide on a number of issues – poverty, the fight against the climate crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic,” Psaki said at a briefing for journalists. “These are all extremely important issues that will become the central part of the meeting.” 

It is noteworthy that on October 28, the Vatican canceled the planned live broadcast of Biden’s meeting with the pontiff – this caused discontent on the part of journalists accredited to the White House and the Holy See.

Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni explained that these changes reflect the “normal procedure” established for all heads of state or government visiting the Pope during the coronavirus pandemic

The Vatican banned the presence of any journalists unrelated to the church at the beginning and end of the meeting. It is assumed that the edited footage will later be provided exclusively to accredited media. Meanwhile, many Americans on the Network expressed the opinion that the live broadcast was canceled due to Biden’s inability to adequately behave during speeches.

«Only two possible reasons: 1—«not my president& raquo; (Biden) asked to edit his speech to eliminate his mistakes, 2— he goes to confession, which is a sign of a «righteous Catholic », — writes PDID user under the corresponding publication on the website of the Fox News channel. However, no self-respecting priest can absolve Joe Biden of his sins, since he does not repent of them. Obviously, we will stick to version #1.

“The Vatican staff is a smart cohort,” notes user charliesix295. Why take the risk if Joe Biden can make a blunder or stumble on the air? Recorded videos and audio can always be cleaned up with the blessing of Francis.

“I am a traditional Catholic,” gadsden_one comments. And the fact that the pope is meeting with pro-abortion politicians like Biden is a real scandal.

After talks with the pontiff, Biden is expected to meet separately with Italian President Sergio Mattarella and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, who are hosting the G20 summit. On Friday evening, the American leader is scheduled to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron, at which the heads of state will discuss a wide range of issues, from the fight against terrorism in the Middle East to the rivalry of great powers and issues of economy, trade, technology. This was announced by the assistant to the President of the United States for National Security Jake Sullivan.

According to him, Biden will assume a leading role at the G20 summit, where neither Chinese President Xi Jinping nor Russian President Vladimir Putin will be personally present. “The United States and Europe will be represented there, and they will demonstrate an energetic and cohesive approach, setting the agenda,” Sullivan added.

However, for Biden, who needs to restore confidence in the United States after the chaotic withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan and discord with France after the nuclear submarine deal with Australia, this will be a really difficult task.

After the G20 summit in Rome, the head of the White House will go to the two-day UN Climate Conference (COP26) in the Scottish city of Glasgow, which will begin on November 1.


Saudi Arabia and the United States Air Forces have completed joint exercises

The Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) and their American counterparts have completed bilateral exercises to protect regional security, the kingdom’s Defense Ministry said on Sunday.

The exercises involved F-15C fighters of the Armed Forces and B-1 strategic bombers of the US Air Force.

“The exercises highlighted capabilities, air traffic control and operational integration,” the ministry said, and they are “a continuation of joint cooperation between the Royal Saudi Air Force and the US Air Force in order to maintain security and stability in the region.”


NI: Due to the use of Bayraktar in the Donbass, Russia may go beyond harsh words to Kiev

Moscow may go beyond harsh words after the use of the Bayraktar (Bayraktar TB2) strike drone in the Donbass, according to the National Interest.

The authors of the materials write that attention should be paid to some early signals according to which the Kremlin’s reaction to these alleged “provocations” may go beyond harsh words. NI is confident that Moscow considered the use of Turkish combat drones on the demarcation line a violation of the Minsk agreements.

Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky pointed out that the Ukrainian Armed Forces used Bayraktars for protection and “will continue to act on this principle.”

The strike of the Turkish Bayraktar drone on the positions of the militia in the Donbas will lead to an aggravation of the situation on the demarcation line, according to the chairman of the State Duma Committee on Defense, ex-Deputy Defense Minister Colonel-General Andrei Kartapolov. “The use of the Bayraktar unmanned aerial vehicle by the Ukrainian military in the Donbas… leadsto further escalation of the conflict inside Ukraine,” the deputy told reporters. He noted that the militia has enough funds to fight drones. “There are appropriate means that can significantly reduce or negate the capabilities of this device. I am sure that the militia have already come up with something,” Kartapolov said.



Biden said he was “hugely comforted” by having contacts with the Pope

US President Joe Biden said he finds “great comfort” in his contacts with Pope Francis. He said this at a press conference in Rome following the conclusion of the G20 summit.

“He is a really, without pretense, a good person,” Biden said, speaking about the pontiff.

According to him, Pope Francis seeks to ensure peace, decency and honor in general on Earth.

The head of the White House pointed out that the pontiff embodies everything he knew about Catholicism as a child. At the same time, he indicated that he has great respect for people who hold other religious views.
