          Ngô Nhân Dụng - Putin và Tập Cận Bình cùng thao diễn quân sự      Cache   Translate Page      


Chủ Tịch Trung Quốc Tập Cận Bình (trái) và Tổng Thống Nga Vladimir Putin cùng nâng ly trong một Hội Đàm Kinh Tế Đông Phương ở Vladivostok, Nga, hôm Thứ Ba, 11 Tháng Chín, 2018. (Hình: Sergei Bobylev/TASS News Agency Pool Photo via AP)

(NgườiViệt 11/09/2018) Quân đội khối NATO đang thao dượt tại vùng Lviv, phía Tây nước Ukraine. Bốn ngày trước khi cuộc tập dượt chấm dứt, hôm Thứ Ba, 11 Tháng Chín, Nga bắt đầu một cuộc thao diễn quân sự lớn ở Siberia. Quân đội Trung Quốc và Mongolia cũng tham dự.

Cuộc tập trận Rapid Trident 2018 của NATO rất khiêm tốn, chỉ có 2.200 quân tham dự, mặc dù gồm 14 nước, kể cả Mỹ. Cuộc thao diễn Vostok 2018 của Nga có thể nói là“vĩ đại,” với 300.000 quân (một phần ba quân số), 36.000 xe thiết giáp, hàng ngàn phi cơ chiến đấu trên bốn căn cứ không quân, 80 chiến hạm biểu dương trong ba vùng, biển Nhật Bản, biển Okhotsk và eo biển Bering.

NATO nói thẳng mục đích của cuộc tập trận là bảo vệ an ninh và chủ quyền của Ukraine, một nước trước đây thuộc Liên Bang Xô Viết, mới bị Nga chiếm mất vùng Crimea năm 2014.

Bộ Quốc Phòng Nga thì công bố mục đích của Vostok 2018 hoàn toàn có tính cách “phòng ngự.” Họ muốn quân đội “sẵn sàng chống cự mọi cuộc xâm lăng.” Bộ Quốc Phòng Nga công nhận đây là cuộc thao diễn lớn nhất, kể từ cuộc tập trận Zapad 1981 ở vùng biên giới cạnh các Đông Âu nước ở phía Bắc. Trong tiếng Nga Vostok là hướng Đông, Zapad là Tây.

Trung Cộng gởi hơn 3.000 quân sĩ, sáu phi cơ, 26 trực thăng trong đó có những chiếc Mi-171, Z-9 và Z-19 mua của Nga; cùng 900 thiết giáp và thiết vận xa tham dự Vostok 2018. Quân đội Cộng Hòa Mông Cổ cũng có mặt, để gọi đây là một cuộc thao diễn quốc tế.

Hai ông Vladimir Putin và Tập Cận Bình sẽ cùng đến quan sát một phần cuộc thao diễn. Điều này cho thấy một mục tiêu ông Putin nhắm tới là: Cho cả thế giới thấy Nga và Trung Cộng đang sáp lại gần nhau.

Trong những cuộc tập trận Vostok trước đây quân đội Nga cũng được điều động để chống một đạo quân xâm lăng giả tưởng, mà ai cũng suy diễn quân xâm lăng đến từ Trung Quốc. Nhưng năm nay, hiển nhiên “quân địch” không phải là quân Tàu nữa! Chắc cũng không phải là Nhật Bản, vì Thủ Tướng Nhật Shinzo Abe sắp đến họp mặt với Tổng Thống Vladimir Putin và Chủ Tịch Tập Cận Bình ở Vladivostok trong một Hội Đàm Kinh Tế Đông Phương, trong thời gian cuộc tập trận diễn ra. Cuối cùng, chỉ có thể đoán “quân địch giả tưởng” trong cuộc tập trận của Nga là quân Mỹ!

Trung Cộng và Nga đã từng đối nghịch nhau từ thời Stalin và Mao Trạch Đông; cuộc tranh hùng lên điểm cao nhất vào năm 1969, khi hai bên bắn nhau bên dòng sông Áp Lục. Nhân cơ hội đó, Tổng Thống Mỹ Richard Nixon đã mở đường giao thiệp với Chủ Tịch Mao, đánh dấu bằng cuộc gặp gỡ lịch sử năm 1972.

Ông Nixon đã “đánh lá bài Trung Quốc” trong chiến lược cô lập hóa Liên Xô, làm cho khối Cộng Sản tách đôi và không bao giờ ráp lại được nữa cho đến khi Liên Bang Xô Viết tan hàng.

Bây giờ đến lượt Putin, cũng muốn dùng Trung Cộng như một quân bài lập mặt trận chống Mỹ. Năm 1989, Mikhail Gorbachev đã nối lại tình hữu nghị với Trung Cộng trước khi đế quốc Liên Xô sụp đổ, và sau đó Boris Yeltsin, Vladimir Putin vẫn tiếp tục.

Ông Putin có lý do để thắt chặt bang giao với nước láng giềng phía Nam; vì Nga đang bị cả khối Tây phương phong tỏa kinh tế sau khi cưỡng chiếm Crimea. Nga đã ký những hợp đồng cung cấp dầu, khí cho Trung Quốc, và hoan nghênh tiền vốn của Bắc Kinh đem đầu tư vào công nghiệp năng lượng. Mặc dù giá dầu lửa đã tăng lên gần đây, nhưng kinh tế Nga còn trì trệ vì vẫn nằm trong tay những đại gia thân cận với ông Putin. Hành động can thiệp của Nga vào Syria, kết thân với Iran chống các nước Á Rập theo phái Sun Ni Hồi Giáo khiến Nga sẽ còn bị tẩy chay. Trước viễn tượng bị cô lập trong hàng chục năm tới, Putin muốn chứng tỏ cho các nước Tây phương biết rằng ông ta còn có nhiều cơ hội khác.

Nga đã phát triển lực lượng tàu ngầm, mở đường đi vào vùng Bắc Cực, đe dọa thế giới với các loại chiến đấu cơ và bom hạch tâm mới. Trong tuần này, hai chiếc tàu chở dầu lớn của Nga, với dung tích 172,000 mét khối đã tới Giang Tô trong vòng 19 ngày nhờ đi đường tắt qua Bắc Cực, thay vì thường đi qua kênh Suez mất 35 ngày. Trung Cộng gọi con đường biển mới này là Đường Tơ Lụa Bắc Cực.

Màn tập trận “đại bàng” đang bắt đầu cũng nhằm biểu diễn sức mạnh quân sự của Nga, để làm nản lòng các nước đang duy trì cuộc cấm vận vì vụ Crimea năm 2014 và Nga dùng tay sai âm mưu lật đổ chính quyền Ukraine. Nếu phong tỏa kinh tế không làm cho Nga yếu đi về quân sự thì tiếp tục để làm gì? Tiếp tục cấm vận Nga thì sẽ chỉ đẩy nước Nga vào tay Trung Cộng, lợi hơn hay hại hơn? Đó là những thông điệp ông Putin muốn gửi đi!

Đối nội, Putin muốn dùng sức mạnh quân sự khích động tinh thần dân tộc tự tôn của dân Nga để củng cố chế độ độc tài phe đảng của ông. Ông đã cho tái lập các cuộc duyệt binh ở Quảng Trường Đỏ vì mục đích đó.

Trung Cộng đến tham dự cuộc tập trận Vostok 2018 cũng nhằm học tập kỹ thuật điều động quân đội của Nga trong một chiến dịch rộng lớn. Từ hơn nửa thế kỷ nay, quân đội Trung Cộng chưa thực sự tham dự một cuộc chiến lớn nào. Họ thiếu “kinh nghiệm chiến trường” trong việc điều phối hàng trăm ngàn quân, trong kỹ thuật thông tin ngoài mặt trận, sử dụng các khí giới mới, đối đầu với các vũ khí mới của quân địch.

Trong Vostok 2018, Không Quân Nga thao dượt cả hệ thống chống loại hỏa tiễn Cruise bay thấp là mặt đất, mà quân đội Mỹ đã sử dụng nhiều lần ở Iraq, Lybia và Syria. Quân Trung Cộng đã được trang bị với loại hỏa tiễn nhắm mục tiêu này nhưng chưa từng được đem thử trên mặt trận.

Hai ông Tập Cận Bình và Vladimir Putin cũng chia sẻ một mối lo chung là luôn luôn phải đề phòng một cuộc nổi dậy của người dân bị trị trong nước họ. Không một chế độ độc tài nào có thể ngủ yên vì họ biết dân chúng chỉ chịu đựng nhất thời, chứ không bao giờ bị khuất phục hoàn toàn. Cuộc tập trận Vostok 2018 sẽ cho thấy khi cần điều động quân đội dẹp tan những cuộc cách mạng thì phải làm gì.

Để ve vãn ông Tập Cận Bình, ông Putin đã cho bán những vũ khí tối tân nhất như hỏa tiễn S-400 và phi cơ SU-35 loại mới nhất. Trong chuyến công du vào Tháng Tư năm nay tới Matskơva, một người thân cận của ông Tập Cận Bình là Tướng Ngụy Phong Hòa (Wei Fenghe, 魏凤和), nguyên chỉ huy trưởng lực lượng hỏa tiễn của TQCG, đã tuyên bố rõ ràng: “Trung Quốc muốn cho nước Mỹ thấy mối giao hảo của quân đội mình với quân đội Nga.”

Nhưng tình hữu hảo giữa hai nước Nga, Hoa có thực sự chặt chẽ và bền vững hay không?

Về mặt kỹ thuật và kinh tế Trung Quốc không thể học hỏi (hoặc ăn trộm) được điều gì từ nước Nga để giúp họ phát triển cho bằng Mỹ và Châu Âu trong vài chục năm tới, như ông Tập Cận Bình đang nuôi tham vọng.

Di sản lịch sử cho thấy hai nước Nga, Trung không bao giờ tin nhau. Cuộc bang giao hoàn toàn dựa trên những tính toán vụ lợi mà không chia sẻ những giá trị cao hơn, cũng không được đặt trên những quy tắc bền vững như luật pháp quốc tế. Khi nào thấy bớt lợi lộc thì hai bên sẵn sàng chia tay.

Mà nước Nga không thể mang lợi cho nước Tàu, không có những thị trường tiêu thụ lớn, cũng không có tư bản và kỹ thuật mạnh để trao đổi. Ông Tập Cận Bình đã lợi dụng thế yếu của ông Putin để ký những hợp đồng về năng lượng với giá rẻ, nhưng ngay cả vai trò của dầu lửa và khí đốt cũng mất tầm quan trọng trong nền kinh tế hiện đại!

Một điều ai cũng thấy trước mắt, là bọn đầu sỏ cầm đầu guồng máy nhà nước và các đại gia Nga không gửi tiền hoặc gửi con cái du học sang Bắc Kinh hay Thượng Hải mà vẫn gửi qua London hay New York!

Nhưng nước Mỹ vẫn nên rút ra một bài học khi chứng kiến cuộc bắt tay thân thiện giữa Vladimir Putin và Tập Cận Bình. Thời 1970, Mỹ đóng vai chủ động trong kế hoạch ly gián Liên Xô và Trung Cộng. Hiện nay Mỹ đã mất vai trò cầm chịch. Thời 1970, trong ba nước thì Trung Cộng yếu nhất. Ngày nay, Nga là nước yếu nhất, còn Trung Quốc đang lên. Trung Cộng không những đang tiến vào Châu Phi, Châu Âu và vùng Trung Đông, mà có thể sẽ bao vây Nga với vòng đai các nước Trung Á trước đây thuộc Liên Bang Xô Viết.

Đối thủ của Mỹ trong thời gian tới không phải Nga mà là Trung Cộng. Để đối phó với chế độ độc tài đảng trị và âm mưu bành trướng của Trung Cộng, nước Mỹ phải thắt chặt thêm quan hệ với những quốc gia tự do dân chủ dựa trên quyền lợi hỗ tương và chia sẻ các giá trị chung. Mỹ không thể đứng cô lập mà phải đóng vai tích cực bảo vệ những lý tưởng dân chủ tự do, tôn trọng luật pháp, củng cố những định chế quốc tế duy trì những giá trị đó.

          Russia's massive war games in the heart of Siberia      Cache   Translate Page      

Moscow, Sep 13 (IANS) Russia's armed forces began the second day of its massive military exercises in the country's far east on Wednesday with a show of strength involving anti-aircraft and missile maneuvers.

The Vostok-2018 war games, the largest staged by Russia since the Cold War, were partly held at the Soviet-built training ground in Telemba, some 200 km to the east of Lake Baikal in the heart of Siberia, Efe reported.

As heavy rain fell, the overcast Siberian sky filled with missiles, guided rockets and thunderous explosions in a show of strength that observers in the West will be watching eagerly.

Colonel Alexander Agafanov of the Russia Air Force described the exercises as a success.

The military arranged several artillery batteries stocked with mid to long-range S-300, S-400, Tor and Buk missiles, the likes of which Moscow has recently sold to Syria and Iran despite protests from the US and Israel.

More than a thousand soldiers took part in a hyper-realistic recreation of a theater of war and explosions interrupted the normally tranquil region, one of the few in Russia where the population is predominantly Buddhist.

Although the war games serve Moscow's propaganda machine, officials declined to name the imagined enemy of the Russian, Chinese and Mongolian forces taking part in Vostok-2018.

Nor would they enlighten reporters as to why there was no sign of the more than 3,000 Chinese soldiers sent to the maneuvers by Beijing.

The participation of the People's Liberation Army surprised many experts.

The display of strength from Russia comes at a time when relations between Moscow and the West are at a considerable low.

According to the Russian defense ministry, 300,000 troops, more than 1,000 aircraft and some 36,000 tanks and vehicles are involved in the maneuvers.

The Kremlin said the war games were routine and did not pose a threat to other countries.

          Corruption in Mongolia: A Problem for Youth      Cache   Translate Page      

The year 2007, according to traditional astrology, was the Year of the Golden Pig. It was believed that good fortune would come to families who gave birth during this auspicious time. Regardless of the role that astrology may have played, Mongolia’s annual birth rate grew from 50,000 in 2007 to nearly 90,000 in 2014, and Mongolia today is one of the youngest nations in the world, with young people age 14–34 comprising 35 percent of the population. So, what does this mean? First, it means there is a pressing need for more kindergartens, more schools, and more jobs, demands that the country is striving to meet. But more importantly, this cohort of young people will have a dominant role in charting Mongolia’s course through the perilous social and economic challenges it faces today, including the nation’s high levels of corruption. The Asia Foundation’s annual Survey on Perceptions and Knowledge of Corruption (SPEAK) shows clear cause for concern about the experiences shaping the outlook of this critical youth demographic. The research shows that most of Mongolia’s petty bribery takes place in public services such as health and education. In a multiyear average, at least a quarter of those who said they had paid a bribe reported that it was to teachers. The hard fact is that many young people in Mongolia are growing up and being educated in an environment of corrupt and unethical behavior. The Foundation’s 2016 survey Transparency, Ethics, and Corruption in the Education Sector found that nearly 40 percent of parents had given small bribes to teachers in return for favors such as better treatment, preferred admission to better schools or classes, and higher grades. Alarmingly, when parents were asked about the results of these payments, 78 percent of those who wanted higher grades for their children said the payment or gift had achieved the desired result (figure 1). When asked if this culture of bribery should be tolerated in the future, 92 percent of parents said no. But when asked if the situation was likely to change, they were pessimistic: 40 percent predicted it would worsen, and... Read more

          Russian Nuclear-Capable Bombers Intercepted Near Alaska      Cache   Translate Page      

For the second time this month, two Russian long-range bombers were intercepted by US Air Force jets after NORAD scrambled the fighters off the Alaskan coast. The dangerous incident happened - perhaps symbolically - on Sept. 11, according to military statements. 

NORAD revealed the intercept on Wednesday evening :

The U.S. military said Wednesday that two Russian nuclear-capable bombers escorted by two fighter jets flew near Alaska on Sept. 11 before being intercepted by a pair of Air Force F-22 stealth fighter jets, according to a statement by the North American Aerospace Defense Command.

The Russian formation never entered U.S. or Canadian airspace, according to the statement.

The US military statement didn't designate a precise location, but only mentioned the formation of Russian bombers and fighter jets were intercepted "west of mainland Alaska" by the American stealth aircraft at 10 p.m. ET Tuesday.

Previously this month, on Sept. 1, a similar formation of two bombers were intercepted by American F-22's after they reportedly entered into the Alaskan Air Defense Identification Zone south of the Aleutian Islands. And last May, another incident was reported in NORAD official statements.

The timing of this latest incident is interesting, given the significance of 9/11 and the terror attacks over the skies of two major American cities which resulted in NORAD grounding all civilian aviation. 

The Russian MoD released this video the day after the intercept incident near Alaska:

Tuesday's incident also comes as Russia launched its largest military drill since 1981, called Vostok-2018, which reportedly involves some 300,000 troops and over 1,000 aircraft, as well as thousands of Chinese soldiers and a smaller Mongolian contingent. 

And perhaps even more interesting is that a day after the intercept (Wednesday) Russia's defense ministry (MoD) released a video on Twitter featuring two Tu-95 "Bear" bombers and a pair of fighter jets taking off from an airbase in eastern Russia, precisely as the same formation NORAD says it intercepted in its Wednesday statement. 

It is entirely possible that the Russian MoD's tweet was meant to troll NORAD and the Pentagon, and it's also possible though not certain that the aircraft depicted in the video were the exact same ones intercepted by the US Air Force near Alaska.

          Vostok-2018: Vladimir Putin susţine că Rusia nu are şi nu poate avea planuri agresive      Cache   Translate Page      
Federaţia Rusă este un stat iubitor de pace, care nu are şi nu poate avea planuri agresive, a declarat joi preşedintele rus Vladimir Putin, asistând la etapa principală a manevrelor militare Vostok-2018, cele mai ample organizate de Moscova în ultimii aproape 40 de ani, conform agenţiilor ruse de presă, între care TASS şi RIA Novosti. ''Politica noastră externă este orientată spre o colaborare constructivă cu toate ţările interesate'', a afirmat Putin, adăugând că ''acesta este motivul pentru care 87 observatori din 59 de ţări ale lumii asistă la aceste manevre'', într-un discurs susţinut pe poligonul Ţugol din Transbaikalia (zonă de la frontiera cu China şi Mongolia) după ce a trecut în revista o parte din trupele care participă la exerciţiile Vostok-2018, cele mai ample de după 1981. Actualele aplicaţii au demonstrat că armata rusă poate riposta în cazul unor ameninţări militare majore, a subliniat liderul de la Kremlin, afirmând că Rusia va continua să-şi dezvolte forţele armate pentru ca acestea să poată să apere suveranitatea Federaţiei Ruse şi să-i sprijine pe aliaţii ei. ''Datoria noastră este să fim pregătiţi să ne apărăm suveranitatea, securitatea şi interesele naţionale, iar dacă este necesar să ne sprijinim aliaţii. Deci, vom continua să consolidăm forţele armate, să le echipăm cu ultimele generaţii de arme şi tehnologie, să dezvoltăm cooperarea militară pe plan internaţional'', a insistat şeful statului rus. Adresându-se militarilor prezenţi, Vladimir Putin a spus că aşteaptă de la ei să-şi respecte jurământul de credinţă faţă de ţară. După discurs, Putin a asistat la o paradă a tehnicii militare implicate în manevrele Vostok-2018, denunţate de NATO ca o repetiţie a unui ''conflict la scară largă''. La aceste manevre, desfăşurate în Siberia orientală şi Extremul Orient rus (din 11 până pe 17 septembrie), participă aproape 300.000 de soldaţi, 36.000 de blindate şi peste 1.000 de aparate de zbor (avioane, elicoptere, drone), 80 de nave, precum şi militari din China şi Mongolia. În cursul aplicaţiilor, armata rusă s-a antrenat miercuri să respingă un atac aerian, folosind sisteme de apărare antiaeriană de ultima generaţie S-400. Astfel, peste 1.000 de soldaţi şi sisteme antiaeriene S-400 şi S-300, precum şi sisteme Panţîr (instalate şi în Siria) au participat la exerciţiile de pe poligonul din Telemba, situat la 130 km nord de Cita, oraş în Siberia orientală. Aceste exerciţii au vizat respingerea unui ''atac masiv cu rachete'' din partea unui ''inamic imaginar'', a indicat un oficial al armatei ruse, Serghei Tihonov. Din 2014, odată cu deteriorarea gravă a relaţiilor între Moscova şi Occident, Rusia şi-a înmulţit exerciţiile militare de amploare, de la Caucaz şi Marea Baltică până la Arctica, denunţând în acelaşi timp extinderea NATO spre frontierele sale, o ameninţare fundamentală pentru securitatea sa, conform noii doctrine militare ruse adoptate în acelaşi an.

          The Ninth Passenger (12/09/2018)      Cache   Translate Page      
Howlin' Wolf Records and Fourteen Kings Music proudly present Scott Glasgow's score for The Ninth Passenger . A tale of industrial espionage that morphs into a good old fashioned monster movie, The Ninth Passenger is co-written and directed by Corey Large, producer of such films as It Follows, Poker Night, and The Frozen Ground .

Available as a limited pressing of 300 CDs, Howlin' Wolf Records and Fourteen Kings Music proudly present Scott Glasgow's score for The Ninth Passenger . A tale of industrial espionage that morphs into a good old fashioned monster movie, The Ninth Passenger is co-written and directed by Corey Large, producer of such films as It Follows, Poker Night, and The Frozen Ground .

Scott Glasgow was presented the challenge to score The Ninth Passenger in ten days, which is a feat difficult to accomplish in the best of circumstances. To add fury to the fire, the composer was in the process of completing another project simultaneously. To pull off what would seem to be the impossible, Glasgow enlisted the talents of composer Theron Kay, a former student from his university lecture course on film music, to write additional music for the score.

Theron Kay was to focus on the espionage themes, while Scott Glasgow would provide the darker, more brooding monster motif for the score.
The result is a tremendous score with multiple dimensions and textures, partly a result of what the composer describes as 'unique instrumental colors' provided by bowed metal percussion, musical stones, piano effects, as well as Tibetan and Mongolian throat singing ...definitely so much more than one would ever expect or hope for from a score composed in ten days!

The Ninth Passenger features liner notes written by composer Scott Glasgow with a note from composer Theron Kay, all beautifully packaged with designs by Javier Burgos.
As a VERY limited and special offer, 25 CDs will be opened and signed by the composer prior to shipping.
These limited autographed CDs are for orders placed on the Howlin' Wolf Records website and are first come, first served, so they will not last long!

As Russia's biggest military exercise since the Cold War comes to an end President Vladimir Putin has repeated that his country has no aggressive intent and only wants peace. Over 300,000 thousand personnel have been involved in Vostok 2018, including thousands of troops from China and a contingent from Mongolia. The air, sea and ground drills were witnessed by 87 observers invited from 57 countries. The exercise has been taking place at a time of deteriorating relations between Russia and NATO over the annexation of Crimea and conflict elsewhere in Ukraine. Putin went to inspect the final display of force and while he was there he decorated some of the soldiers at a military parade. Addressing the soldiers, Putin said it was "our duty" to "be ready to fight for sovereignty, security, and the national interests of our country".

Nearly 10 years on from the launch of a giant copper and gold project in Mongolia, Rio Tinto is still looking to secure a domestic power source it needs for the mine under an agreement with the government. Oyu Tolgoi, located in the South Gobi region near landlocked Mongolia's southern border with China, is scheduled to complete a $5.3-billion underground expansion for first production by 2020, creating one of the world's biggest copper suppliers.

          Russian war games: What you need to know      Cache   Translate Page      
For the past two days, the Russian military has been conducting the country's biggest drills in decades, as President Vladimir Putin seeks to send a message to the West - but also to his own increasingly-dissatisfied electorate. explains why the most-recent drills are significant. Largest drills since the Soviet era According to the Russian defence ministry, the Vostok-2018 military exercises, which launched on Tuesday and are scheduled to end on Saturday, are the country's biggest since 1981. They allegedly involve some 300,000 troops and include contingents from neighbours and Mongolia. A thousand planes, helicopters and drones, up to 80 ships and 36,000 tanks, armoured personnel carriers and other vehicles are to be used, according to the ministry. The drills take place in the country's far-east - Vostok means "East" - and will see close collaborations between ground, air and specialist units as well as the deployment of reconnaissance and electronic warfare. Experts, however, have cast doubt on the number of troops involved. "Russia has strong incentives to provide misleading numbers on the size of its exercises - claiming that those in the West, like Zapad-2017, are smaller than they really are, and those in the East, like Vostok, are larger," Keir Giles, senior research fellow at London-based think-tank Chatham House, told . That's because Western countries can request to send inspectors under the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe rules if exercises involve more than 15,000 troops. Why the West cares Russia regularly conducts military drills and in the past has used these often-surprise exercises to launch attacks, including the invasion of Georgia in 2008 and the annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014. In the past two years, it's appeared to have ramped up its drills in scale and complexity. Russia said 12,000 troops took part in last year's Zapad ("West") exercises on the borders with NATO countries although estimates from observers ranged from 30,000 to 100,000. Of particular interest for the West will be what Russia's army has learnt from the conflicts it's currently involved in, according to Emily Ferris, a research fellow at the London-based RUSI think-tank. "For almost ten years, the Russian army has been undergoing widespread modernisation of its troops and equipment. "Russia's military involvement in the conflicts in eastern Ukraine and Syria are both informing their experiences of battle, and the military is adapting its tactics and technology accordingly, as well as using this as an opportunity to demonstrate its new equipment," she told . Ferris explained, however, that most of Russia's armed companies are under international sanctions, "which makes it difficult for them to locate international partners" and mean its "defence industry still lacks a lot of components". Still, NATO spokesman Dylan , who announced in late August that NATO had been briefed about the drills, said on Twitter: "Vostok demonstrates Russia's focus on exercising large-scale conflict. It fits into a pattern... a more assertive Russia significantly increasing its defence budget & its military presence." Why they're particularly important to Putin Russia has found itself increasingly isolated diplomatically as western nations sanctioned the country for its actions in Ukraine, blamed it for the Novichok nerve agent attack against a former Russian spy in Britain earlier this year and accused it of election meddling. Russia vehemently denies the latter two allegaions. The show of force is a way for Putin to "ensure that its armed forces are as ready as possible to engage in conflict, and that potential adversaries receive an impression of enormous armed power in order to deter them," Giles told . It also plays well in a country that prides itself of its military might and comes at an opportune time for Putin, whose ratings have slipped since announcing a rise in the pension age, prompting wide-spread protests across the country. The drills, Giles said, might "reassure Russians that however much their standard of living may be deteriorating under the current leadership, at least Russia once again has a powerful army to console itself with." Russia's shift to the East It is not the first time has joined Russia for military drills but this year is particularly significant, Ferris explained, because it's "part of Russia's strategy to symbolically and politically align itself with , as a counter-balance to the US's geopolitical influence." The two countries are tied by their mutual security concerns over North Korea's nuclear programme and are increasingly cooperating in Syria. Russia is an active military participant backing Syria's regime leader Bashar al-Assad, while is interested in post-conflict investment. "It is also significant that these exercises coincide with the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) in Russia's far-east region of Vladivostok - an annual event designed to promote foreign and domestic investment in the Far East," Ferris said. "Russia is very interested in attracting investment from Japan and , particularly in infrastructure," she added, noting that President Xi Jinping attended the EEF this year.

World Junior U20 Chess Championship 2018: Round 8

Can anyone stop Parham Maghsoodloo? The way he plays, he’s simply irresistible. His performance is reminiscent of Mamedyarov’s - as the most recent example which comes to mind - totally dominating performances at youth and junior events. Only time will if he match or even surpass his achievements but we can safely predict that we’ll soon see the young Iranian enter the elite 2700+ club.

In girls section not much has changed with the games of leaders, top two boards, being drawn and Khomeriki, Dordzhieva and Maltsevskaya continue to share the lead entering the last three rounds. Who will emerge victorious from this trio or their close followers is probably a question we’ll only be able to answer after the last round.

Open Round 8 Results

Maghsoodloo’s win and his amazing 7,5/8 score is definitely the most important news of the day. The Iranian chose the Classical Sicilian against IM Venkataraman of India and in Richter-Rauzer Maghsoodloo played 9…Bd7, a pet line of the famous Croatian grandmaster Zdenko Kozul. The Indian master - probably wisely after his choice of a3 - decided to lead the game to a complex Sicilian ending. In the beginning it looked like white might get a slight advantage but Maghsoodloo played it better than his opponent and when his opponent went completely wrong trading e-pawn with black b-pawn and thus opening up the position to blacks advantage the Iranian grandmaster played almost flawlessly till the end. Just three more rounds to go and we might see Iran getting the gold!

IMG 7193

On second board things didn’t go as smoothly as on first board however for Iran. Alireza Firouzja misplayed the Delayed Exchange Ruy Lopez against the American Awonder Liang and found himself already seriously worse around 15th move. There didn’t seem to be much counterplay and the way Firouzja tried to create it only led to more weaknesses and material deficit which Liang exploited very efficiently. Great game for the American grandmaster and a surprisingly easy win.

In 9th round we’ll see the sole leader Maghsoodloo (7,5 pts) playing white against Liang (6,5 pts), and a win for the Iranian will mean that he will practically clinch the title. If Liang wins though everything will be up for grabs and even some of the ten players with 6 points might begin dreaming of becoming champion! The most important matchup of the open section for sure!

Girls Round 8 Results

In girls section Khomeriki – Maltsevskaya and Potapova – Dordzhieva on top two boards ended in draws and since the only other player except Potapova with 5,5 points, Gorti lost an equal ending in zeitnot to Tokhirjonova no one could reach them which means Khomeriki and the two Russians, Maltsevskaya and Dordzhieva are still in the lead before the last three rounds.

Potapova – Dordzhieva game always revolved around equality but on first board Khomeriki seemed to get a significant lasting advantage. However against Maltsevskaya’s positionally dubious but active play the Georgian star couldn’t play precisely and the game ended in a repetition.

The rook endgame with pawn races in Zhu – Paramzina game - which should probably have never occurred had Paramzina played more positionally sound - made our commentators sweat in the live commentary room and it can definitely serve the purpose of a training material for calculation. Although there was one very important mistake on 40th move Paramzina generally played the ending superbly and got a necessary win crucial for her chances in the championship.

IMG 7074

The highly dramatic Assaubayeva – Sliwicka game was definitely a miracle for the Russian player. Since some very important Russian writers came up with it, there has been always a talk of a characteristic Russian soul. One of its features is a belief in miracles and it seems sometimes this approach too works. The clearest win for Sliwicka was 54…Nc6, a terribly easy move to make but sometimes Caissa can cloud your mind totally and the Polish player completely lost the thread of the game afterwards, managing first to turn a totally winning position to a draw and then finally to a loss! A really lucky moment for Bibisara Assaubayeva, whose play in this championship failed to impress but she’s still in contention for the first place.

In 9th round there are very important matchups: Maltsevskaya – Dordzhieva, Assaubayeva – Khomeriki, Paramzina – Tokhirjonova and Hojjatova – Potapova. The winners - if any - will be in a very good position to fight for the title in the last two rounds!

9th round will start on September 13, 15.00 local time. As we are getting closer to the end the games too are getting more and more exciting! Don’t forget to watch the live broadcast & commentary by IM Arduman & FM Selbes with surprise guests.


World Junior U20 Chess Championship 2018: Round 7

2018 World Junior Championship continues with full pace! All games were rich in terms of pure chess content as always and the round turned out to be a crucial one in both sections. The only player with full score, Nino Khomeriki from Georgia was finally beaten by WIM Dordzhieva and together with Maltsevskaya there are now three players with 6 points in girls section. In open section the game of leaders Maghsoodloo and Sindarov ended in Iranian stars favor, in which a theoretical debate resulted in a very sharp position where Maghsoodloo managed to outplay his young opponent. This leeaves Maghsoodloo alone at the top with 6,5 points and he’s followed by his compatriot GM Firouzja and Indian IM Venkataraman from a half a point distance.

Open Round 7 Results

The most awaited game of the day was obviously Maghsoodloo – Sindarov. A win by any player would have meant to be sole leader, a feat which was accomplished by the more experienced Iranian grandmaster. Players entered into some wild complications already seen a few times in grandmaster play, most notably in Dubov – Kovalev, Aeroflot 2017. It was Sindarov who went off the beaten path with his 16…Bg4!? instead of Kovalev’s more logical choice 16…exd4 which appears to be more solid and objectively better. However Sindarov’s choice gave black a dangerous initiative and active play as well. Parham Maghsoodloo is a calculating beast who is not afraid of complications and risks however and when he found the great maneuver Bc1-Ba3, followed by Bb3 it was obvious that only white can play for a win. Although there were few slips and a missed drawing opportunity for Sindarov with 37…Rh4! the Iranian grandmaster showed a high level of play in general and gained deservedly the full point.

IMG 6973

On second board the game which started as Italian turned out to be a King’s Indian after all, in terms of pawn structure. It was GM Firouzja who played better and he beat Vavulin in a fine game with the theme of absolute positional dominance. If Tabatabaei could have won on third board too it would have been a perfect day for Iran but things are rarely so perfect in life and it was the Indian IM Venkataraman who got the full point, thanks to a sudden switch to a kingside attack for which Tabatabaei was completely unprepared. A very instructive game!

Other winners of the round on top boards were Hakobyan, Liang, Christiansen and Bai Jinshi. Of these games the most dramatic one was definitely Christiansen – Narayanan. The strong Indian grandmaster was two pawns up in a queens ending but somehow found a way to löse! This could’ve been a nice entry for Dvoretsky’s “Tragicomedies” collection, had Mark Dvoretsky still lived.

In 8th round we’ll have Venkataraman – Maghsoodloo, Liang – Firouzja, Bai Jinshi – Christiansen, Sindarov – Hakobyan on top boards, all pretty difficult and even matchups promising great entertainment for chess fans already!

Girls Round 7 Results

If Khomeriki had won today she could have left a big step behind towards the title but things went wrong for the Georgian and she lost her first point here. To be fair her opponent Dordzhieva from Russia played a good game after she gained the advantage so this loss was definitely not a surprise in the actual sense of the word. A bad result for Georgia but nothing is lost, she’s still at the top and a few wins in the coming rounds will easily settle the score for Nino Khomeriki.

IMG 7001

On second board it was a Russian duel between Maltsevskaya and Paramzina which was won by Maltsevskaya in the end. In fact she showed a great level of play, probably on par with Khomeriki in terms of quality, so it wasn’t a surprise. Potapova’s win on fifth board against Sieber of Germany meant a great day for Russian girls actually and as of this round in top 5 we see three Russians!

Pre-championship favorites Assaubayeva and Tsolakidou didn’t have a great day. Bibisara Assaubayeva couldn’t turn her tangible advantage into a win and Tsolakidou probably mixed up something in her preparation as she got a worse position right out of the opening. A major setback for the top seeded Tsolakidou.

In 8th round there are very interesting games on top two boards: Khomeriki – Maltsevskaya and Potapova - Dordzhieva.

The 8th round will start on September 12, 15:00. Don’t miss IM Arduman & FM Selbes’ live commentary and broadcast with surprise guests!




World Junior U20 Chess Championship 2018: Round 6

Georgia has been a superpower in women chess for quite some time and it seems soon a new name will be added to the list of countless elite players they produced: Nino Khomeriki. She has an unbeliavable perfect score with 6/6 and already has already managed to put - a quite significant- gap of 1 point between herself and the three Russian musketeers: Maltsevskaya, Dordzhieva and Paramzina. If anyone will be able to stop WIM Khomeriki in the next rounds remains to be seen, but if other players have dreams of becoming champion they better hurry before Khomeriki escapes with the title!

In the open section Parham Maghsoodloo could also keep his perfect score if he beat his compatriot Firouzja but as the game reached a friendly outcome he has 5,5 points and shares the lead with the Uzbek prodigy IM Javokhir Sindarov who has won a fine game against IM Christiansen of Norway. For sure a lot will be on stake in the game between the two leaders next round. The future of Uzbek chess definitely looks to be bright with shining young stars such as IM Sindarov and GM Abdusattorov. Of course Iran is also on course to become a great force in chess world with such young talents like Maghsoodloo, Firouzja, Tabatabaei.

Open Round 6 Results

The game on first board between two Iranian players have seen points split quite friendly in an uneventful manner as already mentioned. Sindarov-Christiansen on second board however provided great entertainment, unless you’re a Norwegian obviously. It seemed that Christiansen wasn’t ready for Sindarov’s idea. Although he drifted into a type of position where he had an unpleasant defence in front of him, there was certainly no need to allow the obvious 19. Rxf6 exchange sacrifice, destroying the black kingside completely after which Sindarov easily rounded up the full point. A great result for Sindarov, a win tomorrow against Maghsoodloo and who knows; we might have the second youngest grandmaster in history!

In the all German game Donchenko – Kollars, Black misplayed in the opening and ended up being pawn down with only slight compensation. But inaccuracies of Donchenko led to the escape of Kollars and the game was drawn. On fourth board Santos Ruiz – Esipenko, the Russian player held perhaps a slight advantage most of the game but it never turned into anything tangible and players agreed to a draw just before it fizzled out to a drawn rook endgame.

IMG 6853

Possibly the game of the round was played on fifth board between two Indian players: Aravindh-Venkataraman. Scheveningen is a very complex system in Sicilian with lots of nuances and it seemed IM Venkataraman had a better understanding of the position. It was a near perfect effort by Black, combining defense with destruction of white center after which black rooks infiltrated white ranks with decisive effect. Truly in the style of Garry Kasparov, the greatest expert of Scheveningen; probably even now.

Other players with 5 points are GM Tabatabei of Iran who managed to beat Indian IM Bharathakoti after the latter made a great mistake on 45th move in a totally equal position and IM Vavulin of Russia who won a game of twists and turns according to Tartakower’s maxim: The game is won by the player who made the next-to-last mistake.

Besides Maghsoodloo-Sindarov the other most important matchups of 7th round are Firouzja – Vavulin and Venkataraman – Tabatabei in the open section.

Girls Round 6 Results

It’s becoming more and more a one man show or in this case a one girl show rather. Khomeriki played another high-class game, this time in the ultra-theoretical and sharp Meran against Bulgarian FM Antova, and scored another nice win to keep her perfect score. The accuracy of Georgian so far has really been above the others and that shows itself in the standings as well. Very impressive!

On second board Maltsevskaya played another fine game against Assaubayeva but being in mutual zeitnot she couldn’t calculate a win and opted for a draw. A good result for FM Assaubayeva who couldn’t show her strength in this particular game.

On third and fourth boards Russian girls WIM Dordzhieva and WGM Paramzina win with white pieces against Haussernot and Sliwicka respectively. Dordzhieva – Haussernot was pretty fun to watch with mutual mistakes in a very complex position which finally ended in favor of the Russian. Paramzina – Sliwicka was a more one-sided and correct effort but it had another interesting feature. Sliwicka played the same idea Khomeriki used to beat her yesterday with black pieces but the Polish player lost again! Losing two games in a row in almost the same position both as white and black must feel upsetting. Still Sliwicka showed her strength in the rounds before and best of luck to her in the rest of the championship!

IMG 0272

Finally the story of the round! On fifth board IM Tsolakidou was playing with white against WFM Hilario of Peru. Although she missed an opportunity for getting a big advantage by playing 8.a3 - instead she chose 8. Qc2 - according to her trainer Ioannis Papaioannou, she still managed to get a playable position. However no one could expect that the game would end on 12th move! Tsolakidou took the black knight with 12. Nxd5 and after 12…Nxd5 or 12…exd5 the game would have continued. Instead of taking back the knight however the Peruvian player touched her c-pawn, after which she had no choice but resign! A very unfortunate event for Hilario and a very precious gift for Tsolakidou.

In 7th round Dordzhieva – Khomeriki and Maltsevskaya – Paramzina will definitely be the games to follow as well as Gorti – Tsolakidou and Antova – Assaubayeva.

The 7th round will start on September 11, 15:00 local time. Don’t forget to follow the games and live commentary of IM Arduman & FM Selbes with the always entertaining and instructive GM Papaioannou as the guest commentator.


World Junior U20 Chess Championship 2018: Round 5

As we leave the fifth round behind, we have in both categories a sole leader with full points. In the open section Parham Maghsoodlo from Iran had been overpowering his opponents so far with his brilliant calculation ability and today was no exception either so he keeps his perfect score as of now. In the women section it was Nino Khomeriki from Georgia who emerged as the winner in the game between two leaders so she’s leading with 5 points. A great achievement for both but there’s no time to relax as there are six more difficult games to play!

Open Round 5 Results

All eyes were set on the first two boards in the open section as the players with perfect scores were paired against each other. GM Maghsoodloo was black against IM Bharathakoti and his compatriot GM Firouzja had white pieces against Uzbek IM Sindarov. At one point it seemed like Firouzja will win and Maghsoodloo is going to make a draw but when the round has ended it was the opposite! Still a great day for Iran with the other Iranian grandmaster Tabatabaei also winning!

IMG 6703

Harsha Bharathakoti actually put up a good fight against Maghsoodloo and it seemed like he gained the upper hand in a 5. Bd2!? Nimzo-Indian, a popular sideline recently used by many players to avoid the theory. As Maghsoodloo himself admitted in the postmortem analysis black hasn’t played in the best fashion but still managed to get a good position. Things really began to look scary when the Iranian superstar lost two tempi playing the f6-knight to e4 via e8-d6 route instead of immediately playing 16…Ne4. According to GM Maghsoodloo 22. f5! push would have been much more dangerous than 22.d5 - a very accurate assessment according to our silicon friend. The move in the game also seemed very scary but Maghsoodloo managed to find all the best moves to neutralize white’s attack. To give Bharathakoti his due, the Indian IM attacked vigorously, with a rook sacrifice and so on, and a lesser player could easily lose with black. The resilient defense of Maghsoodloo paid off in the end and in a position, which could have been drawn, Indian IM missed 37…Bh3! which basically forces mate. Another very entertaining game by the young Iranian!

Firouzja too didn’t disappoint in terms of entertainment. Sindarov who has played Zaitsev, an opening line which was featured in Kasparov-Karpov matches very frequently as Igor Zaitsev himself was seconding Karpov, wasn’t probably familiar with the Ree3-b3 idea of white, attacking the black pawns and at the same time trying to put the dark squared bishop in the long diagonal with deadly threats. The exchange of dark squared bishops was positionally very undesirable for black and it also cost him a pawn. Firouzja seemed to be winning easily but the young Uzbek didn’t lose any heart in defense and complicated the matters as much as he could. To pull the hippopotamus out of the marsh of complications wasn’t an easy task for anyone and Firouzja trying to play safely missed the win. All he could get was a rook+knight vs rook endgame in the end and players agreed to a draw. A near miss for the Iranian star but Sindarov also fought in a very exemplary fashion once he found himself in a lost position.

IM Christiansen from Norway played a very good game in Fianchetto Grünfeld and didn’t give his opponent any chance at all. A tour de force from the first move! The same can also be said of Esipenko-Tang game. Russian young talent GM Andrey Esipenko played a great positional game in the style of Karpov, very pleasing to the eyes of fans of positional play for sure. After the free day on Monday we’ll see an Iranian derby between Maghsoodloo and Firouzja on first board. On second board Sindarov will play against Christiansen with white pieces. With other matchups such as Donchenko-Kollars and Santos Ruiz-Esipenko the sixth round is going to be very interesting for sure.

Girls Round 5 Results

In girls section today was another bloodfest with top six games being decisive. On the first board Nino Khomeriki answered the Italian Game with Two Knights Defense with Be7; usually a line which resembles Ruy Lopez. However Khomeriki had a different take on it and she opted for an aggressive plan with Nh7-f5-f4. It proved to be a very wise decision as Sliwicka found the aggressive threats of black on the kingside very difficult to deal with. A great result for the young Georgian who is now with 5/5 the sole leader.

IMG 6695

On second board we had Maltsevskaya-Tsolakidiou matchup and it provided some very instructive lessons on play with/against isolani. If you wonder what kind of lessons these are please watch comments of GM Ioannis Papaioannou in the live commentary room about positions with isolated pawns and this game in particular. Although initially it seemed like Tsolakidou equalized easily when she embarked on a faulty knight maneuver with 19…Ne7?! White gained the upper hand. There followed a very purposeful play by Maltsevskaya and she simply outplayed her opponent. A nice win for the Russian player who finds herself just half a point behind Khomeriki together with the Bulgarian FM Antova who won against Chinese WIM Chu in an epic game which lasted 97 moves!

Assaubayeva won today and reached 4 points, something which the sixth seed Azeri Hojjatova couldn’t do as she lost in a not so good fashion against Peruvian WFM Hilario. Other players with 4 points are Haussernot from France and Dordzhieva and Paramzina from Russian Federation.

There are also tough games awaiting us in the next round such as Khomeriki-Antova, Assaubayeva-Maltsevskaya, Dordzhieva- Haussernot and Paramzina – Sliwicka. Don’t miss the always entertaining and hard-fought games of the girls section. When it comes to willpower and energy girls can teach a thing or two to boys!

Tomorrow is free day in the championship. The sixth round will start on September 10, Monday 15:00 local time. See you in the live broadcast & commentary on Monday but let’s all have a one day rest first!



World Junior U20 Chess Championship 2018: Rounds 3-4

With double rounds today was very exhausting for players. Even though they are all under 20 and at the peak of their energy playing high-level chess from 10 am to 10 pm in such a difficult championship takes its toll even on the fittest of all. But anyway we witnessed many great battles today and in terms of sheer chess content it was an amazingly rich day.

Open Round 3 Results

Open Round 4 Results

After the two rounds played today in the open section we have four players left with perfect score. Two Iranians, top seed GM Parham Maghsoodloo and eight seed GM Alireza Firouzja as well as the 12 years old Uzbek sensation IM Javokhir Sindarov and the 40th seed (!) Indian IM Bharathakoti Harsha. However as Greek GM Ioannis Papaioannou wisely said on the live commentary: “First three rounds mean nothing at such a long championship and the last three rounds everything!” So everything is pretty much on.

IMG 6389

The top seed Maghsoodloo played two extremely difficult and interesting games today. In the morning round Polish IM Lukasz Jarmula have played very well up to a point against the Iranian star and have got a very promising position. Fortunately for Maghsoodloo his opponent went wrong with 42. Ng7?, putting the knight on a wrong square which turned the tables completely. Perhaps not in a very accurate fashion but still the Iranian managed to punish his opponent for his mistake in the end. In the afternoon the game was again very difficult. This time, against the strong Armenian GM Hakobyan, it was always Maghsoodloo who held the advantage but the resulting queen and bishop ending with an extra pawn was terribly difficult to calculate; especially the advanced h-pawn was always a source of worry for white. Hakobyan’s tenacious play was almost rewarded at the end as his opponent played 73. e7??, thinking that after 73…Qxe7 the h-pawn is won by a series of checks; missing the Kh8-Qh7 idea which protects the h-pawn and forces Maghsoodloo to a draw. Still an impressive performance by Parham Maghsoodloo overall. One has to give credit to players who have played so many hours today and were probably extremely tired.

Firouzja has also played two very entertaining games, against Vugar Asadli in the morning round and then in the afternoon against Andrew Tang, a familiar name to online chess community. Both games were well played, even though Firouzja gave his opponents few chances to save both games it always seemed like he was the side pushing for a win.

The Uzbek prodigy Javokhir Sindarov made good use of two whites today and beat two very strong grandmasters in a row: Tabatabaei and Aravindh! Just an advice for Sindarov’s future opponents: Don’t play the Sicilian or even if you do, don’t let him play Nxc6 followed by e5 because he will beat you! Keep this boys name in your mind because it seems that you will hear it a lot in maybe 5-6 years from now on. If he wins this championship he will automatically become GM and thus become the second youngest grandmaster ever after Karjakin!

Top boards on 5th round will be Harsha Barathkoti - Maghsoodloo and Firouzja – Sindarov. Let’s see which players can keep their perfect score, if any!

Girls Round 3 Results

Girls Round 4 Results

In girls section we have only two players left with perfect score: WFM Alicja Sliwicka from Poland and WIM Nino Khomeriki from Georgia. As both countries are known for their strength in women chess it seems that they also have fresh talents coming up! Both players made a good impression with their play today, especially in the last round.

Sliwicka’s win against Gorti from USA was brilliant where the young Polish talent managed to keep control of the game until the very end. Khomeriki also played a brilliancy and punished some not so precise opening play by Kazakh Nurgali very efficiently. It seems that both players are in a great form and play at a higher level than their ratings suggest.

IMG 6280

Bibisara Assaubayeva, the third seed of the championship, had a 2/2 start but today achieved only two draws although having acquired great winning chances in both games. Top seeded IM Tsolakidou fared much better however as she won two good games and enter the fifth round just half a point behind the leaders.

Fourth round saw two very important surprise results too, 4th seed WGM Tokhirjonova losing to Maltsevskaya and 2nd seed IM Nomin-Erdene getting a second loss, this time against Chinese Yuxin Song who is having a great championship. The fifth seed WIM Zhu Jiner also didn’t have a great day, with one draw against Ece Özbay and a loss against her compatriot WIM Ruotong Chu she has only 2 points as of now and will try to make a comeback.

The 5th round will start on September 8, 14:00 local time. Stay tuned for very entertaining games tomorrow and also don’t miss the live commentary of IM Arduman & FM Selbes!

World Junior U20 Chess Championship 2018: Round 2

Although first round was by no means a one-sided battle for favorites, the second round was destined to be even tougher as the rating differences between paired opponents got less. All the games were hard-fought and contained interesting and bold play from young stars.

Open Round 2 Results

In the open section it was a good day for 2600+ players as Maghsoodloo, Donchenko and Karthikeyan - despite the draw in the first round you can count Jorden van Foreest as well - all won fine games against their lesser rated opponents, thus entering the third round unharmed with 2 points.

One of the greatest upsets of the round was the defeat of the 16 years old Russian star Andrey Esipenko, at the hands of 18 years old Kazakh player Denis Makhnev. IM Makhnev played the opening phase of a Semi-Tarrasch game not too well and allowed Esipenko to equalize easily. At one point it looked like Black could even take the initiative but things have changed with Esipenko’s very quickly played move 18…Rd8? Makhnev found the best way of playing, namely with the idea of trapping the awkwardly placed black queen; a problem which Esipenko found very hard to deal with. By move 25 Makhnev won the f7-pawn and then went on to calculate a brilliant sequence of tactics to reach a double rooks ending with an extra bishop vs two pawns; which he converted perfectly. A great performance by the Kazakh player!

IMG 6178

The fifth board also saw a brilliant win by the Chinese grandmaster Xu. The intermediate move 20. Rxf6! was a beautiful exchange sacrifice after which the passivity of black pieces and mate threats led to a material down and totally lost ending for Janik from Poland.

Two other notable games in both of which underdogs have won against their opponents need to be mentioned. IM Percivaldi from Denmark won what seemed to be a very well played game against GM Bai from China, punishing his opponent for his reckless play. The 13 years old Işık Can of Turkey, one of the brightest stars of Turkish chess, managed to win against IM Lobanov from Russia; thanks to a very dangerous passed pawn on c-file. A very well played ending by the young FM! At 2 points Işık Can is also leading the race between the local players as of now.

By the end of the second round only 25 players remain with full score in the open category and with the exception of Işık Can -against GM Martirosyan (1.5 pts)- they will play against each other. We are still nowhere near the climax of the tournament and the best is yet to come!

Girls Round 2 Results

It was a day of missed opportunities and twists in girls section. There were four draws in the first five boards but it could easily have been five decisive games as well.

IM Tsolakidou of Greece, the top seed of the championship, had a significant advantage in a queenless middlegame position against Chinese WIM Chu but when she missed a couple of nuances at critical moments her advantage dissipated and the game ended in a draw. Bibisara Assaubayeva won on second board against Indian WIM Varshini, a game which went equal for a long time but when the Indian WIM finally faltered FM Assaubayeva didn’t give a second chance to her opponent.

IMG 6167

Perhaps the most incredible game of the round was played on third board, between German FM Schneider and the Uzbek WGM Tokhirjonova. Schneider opted for a wrong setup in Giuoco Pianissimo and handed down a very dangerous kingside attack to her opponent which was probably winning at a few moments of the game. However WGM Tokhirjonova lost her way and somehow a winning ending for white emerged on the board! FM Schneider played very well, all the way until the promotion after which she was an exchange up with a very easily winning position. Just pushing her passed pawn or mopping up the a-pawn of black was enough to win the game easily but instead miracles began to happen and in the end one can even say that it was white who had to make the draw! If someone speaks of the merits of resigning in completely lost positions show him/her this game!

The wins of Egyptian WGM Wafa and Polish WFM Dwilewicz against WIM Unuk and WIM Haussernot were also very impressive in different ways, the former being a slow grind whereas the latter a 27 move mate after some power play by White!

Third round of 2018 World Junior Chess Championship will start on September 7, 10:00 local time as the next one will be played in the afternoon at 17:00! A tiring day for sure, both for players and our commentators IM Arduman & FM Selbes! See you tomorrow at the live broadcast!

World Junior U20 Chess Championship 2018: Round 1

2018 World Junior Chess Championship and World U-20 Girls Championship have started today. A very important championship historically – just mentioning the fact that world champions Spassky (1955), Karpov(1969), Kasparov (1980) and Anand (1987) have all started as world junior champions is enough - it is definitely the event to follow these days, especially if you want to discover the elite players of future.

This years edition sees a record-breaking number of participation, players from 65 different countries have come to Gebze/Turkey to compete for the most important title U-20. But it’s not just about quantity. In the open section there are 30 players who have an ELO rating higher than 2500, which shows the strength of the competition. As for girls, it might seem to be not as strong as the open category but still in a very evenly matched field anything might happen, so lots of surprises and difficult battles should be expected in this category as well. Let’s have a short look at first round in both sections.

R1

Open Round 1 Results

The first round usually brings heavy favorites against weak players but not here. For example on the first board GM Maghsoodloo (2649) from Iran found himself matched up against FM Wadsworth (2351) of England. Certainly not a championship to be taken lightly, even the very start is quite difficult in this marathon.

That being said still the first round saw few surprises. 12 years old Russian talent Volodar Murzin held against the second seed Jorden van Foreest and thus managed to begin the championship with a draw, usually not a bad result if you are playing with black against a 2624 ELO player! One of the local hopes, FM Tuna Tuncer of Turkey has played a very clean game against GM Martirosyan (2597) of Armenia and in a position with a material imbalance accepted the draw offer of his opponent. Probably a wise decision by the Armenian grandmaster, as black knight and bishop had trouble finding good squares for themselves whereas the same cannot be said of white rook and pawns.

In the second round we’ll see closer matchups than today and we can certainly expect a great amount of hard-fought games! Stay tuned for the live broadcast!

Girls Round 1 Results

Women chess in general is a lot more exciting than men and this first round was also another occasion proving it. On board number one, the rating favorite Stavroula Tsolakidou from Greece seemed to be cruising to victory but then somehow found herself completely lost! This was not the end of the drama though as her opponent Malatsilava returned the favor and thus lost her chance to inflict a very upsetting defeat on IM Tsolakidou at the start of the championship.

The second board also saw the underdog getting winning chances, this time actually capitalizing on it. The second seed IM Nomin-Erdene from Mongolia found out that her Chilean opponent is not to be underestimated and lost in an uncomfortable position despite opposite-colored bishops to WIM Gomez Barrera. An early setback after which the Mongolian star will have a hard time climbing up the ranks again, but in an 11-rounds event everything’s possible!

R1 1

There are tough pairings in the second round as Tsolakidou and Assaubayeva will find themselves matched up against Chinese WIM Ruotong and Indian WIM Varshini respectively. If you think about how underrated players from China and India actually are these matches will be quite interesting to follow!

See you all at the second round starting on September 6, 15:00 local time! Don’t miss the live broadcast and commentary by IM Arduman & FM Selbes!

President Putin opened a spectacular troop review that saw Russian and Chinese armor, troops and warplanes parade through a training ground in Siberia. The parade was part of the Vostok 2018 exercise, the biggest in decades. Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived on Thursday to observe the main part of the Vostok 2018 war games, in which Russian, Chinese, and Mongolian troops trained defensive and offensive operations. Scores of tanks, heavy artillery, missile systems and combat jets have been involved, as well as thousands of soldiers and officers. President Putin also opened a grand parade at the Russian Army's Tsugol training range and praised the troops for their performance in the military exercise. He reiterated, however, that the display of military might is not directed against anyone, as Russia seeks "constructive partnership." The troop review started with light armored jeeps carrying both Russian and Chinese flags through the parade grounds, followed by four fighter jets flying over the area.

          'The Dinosaur Artist' Dusts Off The Debate Over Who Should Own Fossils       Cache   Translate Page      

Do prehistoric fossils belong only in a museum or educational center that communicates science to the public? Is it ever right for commercial fossil hunters to sell dinosaur skulls to movie stars for display in their living rooms?

In The Dinosaur Artist: Obsession, Betrayal, and the Quest for Earth's Ultimate Trophy, Paige Williams brings these questions into high relief by recounting the exploits of American commercial fossil hunter Eric Prokopi. Prokopi grew up in "the bone-soaking sear of central Florida," a land rich with shark teeth and other fossils. Finding his first mastodon tooth early on, he soon knew he had discovered his life's work. As an adult, his aptitude for commercial fossil hunting led to a high-end lifestyle for his wife and two children.

When Prokopi's debts began to exceed his profits, though, a turning point was reached: He realized that, as Williams dryly puts it, "The big money was in big dinosaurs." In 2006, at a fossil trade show in Denver, Prokopi bought for $18,000 the disarticulated skull of a dinosaur of the spectacular species Tarbosaurus bataar, a massive dinosaur related to Tyrannosaurus rex. Though the skull was 65 percent complete and from Mongolia, on the U.S. customs form, it was listed as "fossil stone pieces" with an origin of Japan (from where it was routed), a deception that hinted at things to come. Prokopi arranged for the skull to go up at auction the following year in New York.

What happened next made headlines: After a bidding war between Hollywood stars Nicolas Cage and Leonardo DiCaprio, the skull sold to Cage for $276,000. Before long, Prokopi found himself in DiCaprio's LA home, installing a second skull of the same species for around the same sale price.

This high-profile fossil-vying, Williams writes, "renewed scientists' outcry against the sale of vertebrate fossils." For centuries, exquisite tension had characterized the relationship between professional paleontologists who seek fossils for study and display in scientific institutions, and fossil hunters and dealers who seek instead to make big money by selling their goods in trade shows, at auction, or on the black market.

Paleontologist Catherine Forster, quoted by Williams, explains how commercial fossil trade harms science: It out-and-out distorts the scientific record, because "scientists must be able to compare new specimens with those previously unearthed." Only through comparison and contrast do researchers gain a sense of evolutionary patterns over time, an opportunity that is lost when key fossils are locked away in homes of the rich and famous.

Fossil hunters become indignant at what they hear as ivory-tower talk. Many counter by noting that their activities are legal and bring the excitement of fossils to the masses. "If it weren't for people like me," Prokopi says, "some of these bones would just turn to dust and none of us would ever get to see or study them."

Mongolian dinosaurs are at the heart of this debate, and Williams capably takes on the political and fossil-rich history of Mongolia, from its 1911 declaration of independence from China to its 1990 democratic revolution. She highlights the decade-long (1922-1932) fossil expedition to the Gobi, complete with 75 camels and seven cars, led by Roy Chapman Andrews. Andrews was a real-life Indiana Jones of his day who later assumed the directorship of New York's American Museum of Natural History. All these Mongolia-centered sections are strengthened by Williams's one-on-one interviews with major players, including Mongolian paleontologist Bolor Minjin, "on location" in the capital city Ulaanbataar.

One 24-ft.-long Tarbosaurus fossil is the book's star. Its story involves Prokopi's own travels to Mongolia, the fossil dealer Tuvshinjargal Maam, the president of Mongolia, another New York City auction of the bones purchased by Prokopi, and surveillance of Prokopi — who eventually becomes suspected of illegal smuggling by the U.S. government. Like the plot of a good novel, this tale deserves its own discovery by readers rather than my summarizing it closely.

Taking the point of view of science — a biological anthropologist is writing this review, after all — the most relevant take-home message from the Tarbosaurus smuggling case comes from Assistant U.S. Attorney Sharon Levin, speaking about Prokopi: "He participated in a conspiracy to steal from the people of Mongolia and to make money off of that." That point really is the bottom line, and it is emphasized also by the judge in Prokopi's court case: A fossil hunter should commit himself "to respect the history and patrimony of countries offering that history."

The book does have some flaws. It's as if Williams felt compelled to include every last thing she learned through her research, even beyond the 90 dense pages of footnotes. We don't need to know that Prokopi's mother-in law decorated her home at the holidays with "dense arrangements of aromatic greenery and gilded candlesticks." Even less relevant are weight-related comments: Mongolian activist Oyuna Tsedevdamba is "youthful and slim," and auction broker David Herskowitz walks with "his belly leading."

More disconcertingly, whenever the Tarbosaurus narrative gathers speed, Williams dumps in a sticky web of new names and facts to keep straight. At one point of real momentum, suddenly we're sent back to 1793 and the life of an English cabinetmaker named Richard Anning. His daughter Mary Anning, a highly skilled collector of invertebrate fossils around Lyme, England, is a compelling figure from the annals of women in science — but overall there are just too many of these jarring time jumps.

When the fossils and fossil fieldwork are given center stage, the pages turn fast. Williams writes elegantly on the importance of fossils to science, including to applied work on pressing issues such as mass extinction and climate change. She hangs out with the Prokopis a bit and includes their side of the smuggling story. But from The Dinosaur Artist, we come to see that no fossil hunter should have the right to control who owns these treasures of our planet's evolutionary history.

CBS chief executive Moonves quits over sexual misconduct claims-Network deducting $20 million from disgraced CEO’s severance package for donation to the #MeToo movement-By Jennie Matthew-TOI-SEP 11,18

NEW YORK — US television giant CBS announced Sunday the immediate departure of powerful CEO Leslie Moonves, one of the biggest scalps in the #MeToo era, following a slew of escalating sexual misconduct allegations.Moonves, who transformed the corporation into the most watched television network in the country, was one of the most respected executives in Hollywood until he was first publicly accused.Two articles published by The New Yorker — on July 27 and on the day that his departure was announced — detailed allegations against the 68-year-old television titan from 12 different women.CBS subsequently declared that he would depart as chairman, president and CEO “effective immediately,” and that he and the network would donate $20 million to supporting the #MeToo movement and equality for women in the workplace.“The donation, which will be made immediately, has been deducted from any severance benefits that may be due Moonves,” CBS said.The disgraced CEO will not receive any compensation, pending the results of an investigation into the allegations against him being conducted by two blue-chip law firms, the corporation announced.“Any payments to be made in the future will depend upon the results of the independent investigation and subsequent board evaluation,” CBS announced in a statement.Moonves’s departure had been widely expected, with US media reporting that the terms of his exit had been under negotiation for weeks, and a deal had been anticipated before markets open Monday.-Police report-At least one report had suggested that he could get a golden handshake of $100 million in stock.One of his accusers, Jessica Pallingston, told the Pulitzer-winning journalist Ronan Farrow, who broke the allegations against Moonves in The New Yorker, that such a payoff would be “completely disgusting.”CBS announced that chief operating officer Joseph Ianniello will be president and acting CEO, overseeing all operations of the company, while the board searches for a permanent successor.Along with Moonves’s departure, CBS said it had agreet to settle a lawsuit with National Amusements pending in Delaware that would appoint six new independent directors to the board.The deal upheld the control of the Redstone family, whose members control an 80 percent voting stake in CBS, who agreed to drop — for at least two years — a proposed merger with the Viacom group.In July, Farrow’s first bombshell report detailed sexual harassment allegations from six women and complaints from dozens of others about a culture within the company tolerating sexual misconduct.While CBS appointed a team of lawyers to investigate, there was outrage from some advocates that Moonves was kept on the job.On Sunday, The New Yorker published allegations from another six women, who said that Moonves sexually harassed or assaulted them between 1980 and the early 2000s.They included claims that Moonves forced them into perform oral sex, exposed himself to them without their consent, and that he used physical violence and intimidation against them. Some of them also said Moonves retaliated after being rebuffed, damaging their careers.One of the women, television executive Phyllis Golden-Gottlieb, filed a criminal complaint last year with Los Angeles police. The New Yorker said that while police found her allegations “credible” the alleged incidents happened too long ago to prosecute.-Moonves denial-Moonves told the magazine that three of the encounters were consensual.“I have never used my position to hinder the advancement or careers of women,” he said.“In my 40 years of work, I have never before heard of such disturbing accusations. I can only surmise they are surfacing now for the first time, decades later, as part of a concerted effort by others to destroy my name, my reputation and my career.”Since joining CBS in 1995, Moonves transformed the corporation into the most watched television network in the country and one of the media industry’s best-performing businesses.He was promoted to president and CEO of CBS Television in 1998, and became chairman in 2003.Moonves worked previously at Warner Bros. Television, where his team developed hit shows such as “Friends” and “ER.”A one-time actor, he is father to four children. His second wife Julie Chen stood by him after the accusations first surfaced.Farrow shared a Pulitzer Prize with The New York Times for his reporting on Harvey Weinstein, which galvanized the #MeToo movement to quash pervasive sexual harassment in showbiz and other industries.Earlier this year, he uncovered allegations of physical assault that forced New York state prosecutor Eric Schneiderman to resign.

Memorial for 9/11 victims to chime an ‘everlasting concert by our heroes’-Dedication comes nearly 17 years after passengers and crew on hijacked Flight 93 fought back against terrorists who then crashed the jetliner into a Pennsylvania field-By MARK SCOLFORO-TOI-SEP 11,18

SHANKSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — The heroism of airline passengers and crew who died when hijackers crashed their plane into a Pennsylvania field was remembered Sunday with the dedication of a concrete-and-steel tower that will ring with wind chimes for every one of them at the spot where they fell to earth.Relatives of the 40 people killed during the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, helped ring eight of what will eventually be 40 aluminum chimes at the Flight 93 National Memorial site, and former Gov. Tom Ridge said the Tower of Voices will be “an everlasting concert by our heroes.”The dedication occurred nearly 17 years after passengers on the hijacked flight from New Jersey to California fought back against a band of terrorists who then crashed the jetliner into a rural field. Officials concluded the terrorists were aiming the Boeing 757 toward Washington, to be used as an enormous airborne weapon.It was “the day that lives were lost so that other lives were saved. And heroes were made over the skies of Shanksville,” said Ridge, who served as the first secretary of the Homeland Security Department when it was created after 9/11.The roughly 93-foot (28-meter) structure represents the final phase of the Flight 93 National Memorial. Each chime generates a distinctive sound, and rows of trees that ring the site symbolize sound waves.“Together their voices will ring out into perpetuity, with this beautiful Somerset County, Pennsylvania, wind,” park Superintendent Stephen Clark said.The national park at a the crash site, about 2 miles (3 kilometers) north of Shanksville, also includes a memorial plaza, dedicated on the 10th anniversary in 2011, and a visitor’s center that opened three years ago.As a cold, driving rain pelted the hills, memorial architect Paul Murdoch spoke of the plan, which uses the wind to activate the chimes. The remaining chimes are expected to be installed in the coming weeks.“These chimes respond to unanswered cries of voices not spoken again, but remembered in the vibrations of a monumental tower” Murdoch said.They range from 5 to 10 feet (1.5 to 3 meters) long, weigh as much as 150 pounds (68 kilograms) and are tuned.Nearly 3,000 people died in the Sept. 11 attacks, when terrorists seized control of four planes. They flew two of them into the World Trade Center skyscrapers in New York and the fourth into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, just across the Potomac River from Washington, DC.“These guys are the real heroes,” said retired truck driver Stefan Robbins, visiting the memorial from Lexington, Kentucky. “They didn’t sign up — they’re not a cop, they’re not a firefighter.”The Flight 93 passengers learned in mid-flight they had been hijacked and responded heroically, declaring “let’s roll” as they confronted their adversaries inside the plane.Thirteen passengers on the plane made a combined 37 phone calls during the attack, getting information about the other three hijackings and crashes.“When they learned that, it galvanized them as a group,” Clark said. “They said, ‘We’re not going back to any airport. This is a suicide mission.'”As some passengers apparently tried to storm the cabin, the hijacker at the controls then rolled the plane, trying to throw them off balance, before the aircraft became inverted and crashed at 563 mph (906 kph) on the edge of a reclaimed strip mine at 10:30 a.m.The impact ignited about 100 hemlock trees. Hemlocks are used as symbols throughout the memorial’s design, including the tower.A 17-ton (15-metric ton) sandstone marks the impact site, located within a 44-acre (17.8-hectare) fenced-off area of the field where crash debris landed, referred to as the “sacred ground.” Access to that part of the park is limited to family members of the passengers and crew. Four 40-foot (12.2-meter) containers of remaining debris from the crashed airplane were buried there during a private ceremony on June 21.The memorial was funded with $46 million from 110,000 private donors, including $6 million to design and build the Tower of Voices. Volunteers are well on their way to the goal of planting 150,000 seedlings around the 2,200 acre (890 hectare) park. It attracted about 400,000 visitors last year.The dedication comes two days before the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. President Donald Trump is expected to attend that memorial ceremony Tuesday in Shanksville, along with Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke.Shanksville is about 75 miles (120 kilometers) southeast of Pittsburgh.

Pence: I’m confident no one on my staff wrote incendiary anti-Trump NYT op-ed-‘My people are dedicated to advancing the president’s agenda and supporting everything he is doing for the people of this country,’ says vice-president-By DARLENE SUPERVILLE-TOI-11 September 2018

WASHINGTON (AP) — US Vice President Mike Pence says he’s “100 percent confident” that no one on his staff was involved with the anonymous New York Times column criticizing President Donald Trump’s leadership.“I know them. I know their character,” Pence said in a taped interview aired Sunday by CBS’ “Face the Nation.”Some pundits had speculated that Pence could be the “senior administration official” who wrote the opinion piece because it included language Pence has been known to use, like the unusual word “lodestar.” The op-ed writer claimed to be part of a “resistance” movement within the Trump administration that was working quietly behind the scenes to thwart the president’s most dangerous impulses.Pence added his staff to the list of more than two dozen high-ranking administration officials who have denied writing the column.“Let me be very clear. I’m 100 percent confident that no one on the vice president’s staff was involved in this anonymous editorial. I know my people,” Pence said on “Face the Nation.” ”They get up every day and are dedicated, just as much as I am, to advancing the president’s agenda and supporting everything … President Trump is doing for the people of this country.”Asked whether he had asked his staff about the op-ed, Pence said, “I don’t have to ask them because I know them. I know their character. I know their dedication and I am absolutely confident that no one on the vice president’s staff had anything to do with this.”He restated that he thinks the essay writer should do the “honorable thing and resign.”Publication of the op-ed followed the release of stunning details from an upcoming book by Watergate reporter Bob Woodward in which current and former aides referred to Trump as an “idiot” and “liar” and depicted him as prone to rash policy decisions that some aides either work to stall or derail entirely.Both releases are said to have infuriated Trump, who unleashed a string of attacks on Woodward’s credibility and dismissed the celebrated author’s book as a “work of fiction.” Some of the officials featured in the book’s anecdotes about the president, including Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and White House chief of staff John Kelly, issued statements denying the comments attributed to them by Woodward.Woodward has said he stands by his reporting. The book, “Fear: Trump in the White House,” is scheduled to be formally released Tuesday, all but ensuring that the debate over Trump’s leadership ability and style will extend into a second straight week.Trump, meanwhile, has denounced the Times opinion piece as “gutless” and its publication as a “disgrace” bordering on treason.Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, a Trump ally, has said the president would be justified in using lie detectors to ferret out the anonymous writer. The president has yet to say whether he’d go that far, but Pence says he’d be willing to submit to such an examination.“I would agree to take it in a heartbeat and would submit to any review the administration wanted to do,” he said in a taped “Fox News Sunday” interview.Both Pence and Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to Trump, pushed back during separate television appearances Sunday on the portrayals of Trump as anything but a thoughtful leader. Both also said they had no idea who wrote the piece; Trump has said he can name up to five people who could have written it.“What I see is a tough leader, a demanding leader, someone who gets all the options on the table,” Pence said on Fox News. “But he makes the decisions, and that’s why we’ve made the progress we’ve made.”Trump has said the Justice Department should investigate and unmask the anonymous author. He cited national security concerns as grounds for what would amount to an extraordinary criminal probe should Attorney General Jeff Sessions decide to pursue one.Neither Pence nor Conway answered directly when asked if Sessions should treat Trump’s comments as an order. The Justice Department is supposed to make investigative decisions free of political pressure from the White House and the president.Appearing on CNN, Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, the top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee, disagreed that the opinion piece amounted to a national security threat and attributed Trump’s musing about a Justice Department investigation “to a president who’s lashing out.”On an unrelated matter, Pence said on CBS that he has not been called for an interview by special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating possible coordination between Russia and Trump’s Republican presidential campaign as well as Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election.Pence said he’s willing to sit down with Mueller if he is asked and added that he so far has cooperated with all requests for information from the special counsel and will continue to do so.

Liberman: We’ve thwarted terror attacks in recent days meant to disrupt New Year-In Rosh Hashanah toast with IDF soldiers, defense minister says Israelis will be able to celebrate holiday with confidence and security following army’s recent operations-By Jacob Magid-TOI-10 September 2018

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said Sunday that the IDF has thwarted several terror attacks in the last few days meant to disrupt Rosh Hashanah celebrations.“In recent days, too, we have arrested suspects and prevented terror attacks,” Liberman said, addressing a company from the Armoured Corps at a toast for the Jewish New Year that starts Sunday evening.“The people of Israel will be able to celebrate Rosh Hashanah with confidence and quiet thanks to IDF soldiers and security forces who will continue to tour and protect us all during the holiday,” he said, without divulging further details.The defense minister thanked the company of Armoured corps soldiers, who are also responsible for guarding the West Bank settlement of Nokdim, where he lives.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered similar praise of the Shin Bet security service at a new year’s toast last week where he claimed that “not a day goes by in which there is no thwarting” of an attack.Netanyahu credited the work of the security agency with helping Israel to avoid much of the violence that has engulfed other countries in the Middle East.“The Shin Bet deters, thwarts, and defeats on a daily and hourly basis those who want us dead,” Netanyahu said at a toast with security chiefs for the upcoming Jewish new year.Israeli security services documented 255 attacks last month, including 11 in Jerusalem, the Shin Bet security service said in its monthly report published earlier this month. The June tally was 220 incidents.Despite the increase, the figures in July were well below those of May, when 365 incidents were documented — the highest number in over two years.Nearly two-thirds of the attacks recorded in July involved firebombs. Incidents involving the hurling of rocks at Israelis and their cars are not included in Shin Bet reports.

Far-right makes major gains in Swedish elections as ruling party scrapes a win-Prime Minister Lofven says ‘moral responsibility’ to combat anti-immigration party with neo-Nazi roots that won nearly 18% of the vote-By PIETRO DECRISTOFARO and JAN M. OLSEN-TOI-SEP 11,18

STOCKHOLM (AP) — Voters handed Sweden’s ruling party its worst-ever election result Sunday and delivered a parallel lift to a far-right party with white supremacist roots, leaving the ideological outline of the Scandinavian country’s next government uncertain.After a campaign dominated by debates over immigration, the center-left Social Democratic Party emerged with the greatest share of the vote — 28.4 percent as the count neared completion — yet looking at holding fewer parliament seats and having its mandate to govern questioned.The potential for an immigration backlash to result in a big boost for the far-right Sweden Democrats inspired fear among many Swedes before the election. It received a little more than one in six votes, or 17.6 percent. Its showing was not as strong as the one-in-five polls had predicted, but good for a third-place finish that had the party’s leader telling supporters, “We won.”Prime Minister Stefan Lofven, who brought the Social Democrats to power in 2014, said he intended to remain in the job. The leader of the Moderates party that came in second, Ulf Kristersson, already had called on Lofven to resign and claimed the right to form Sweden’s next government.Sounding somber and firm, Lofven told his supporters the election presented “a situation that all responsible parties must deal with,” adding that “a party with roots in Nazism” would “never ever offer anything responsible, but hatred.”“We have a moral responsibility. We must gather all good forces. We won’t mourn, we will organize ourselves,” he said.Final election returns were expected later in the week. The preliminary results made it unlikely any party would secure a majority of 175 seats in the 349-seat Riksdag, Sweden’s parliament. It could take weeks or months of coalition talks before the next government is formed.Both the left-leaning bloc led by the Social Democrats and the center-right bloc in which the Moderates is largest of four parties have said they would refuse to consider the Sweden Democrats as a coalition partner.Sweden — home to the Nobel prizes and militarily neutral for the better part of two centuries — has been known for its comparatively open doors to migrants and refugees. Sunday’s general election was the first since the country of 10 million took in a record 163,000 refugees in 2015 as mass migration to Europe rose dramatically.Lofven eventually said Sweden no longer could cope with the influx and immigration laws were tightened.Like other far-right parties in Europe, the Sweden Democrats worked to soften its neo-Nazi image in the lead-up to the election. The party symbol was switched from a flame thrower to a flower. Members known for making pro-Third Reich statements were pushed out.It made its first mark in politics with municipal council seats in 2006, and since then slowly helped revise long-accepted social norms for what Swedes could say openly about foreigners and integration without being considered racist.At the Swedish Democrat’s election eve rally Saturday, party leader Jimmie Akesson criticized Lofven’s government for “prioritizing” the needs of new immigrants the ones of Swedish citizens.Akesson was jubilant as he addressed supporters a day later, declaring the estimated 14 parliament seats the Social Democrats picked up a victory other parties could not ignore in coalition negotiations.“This party has increased and made the biggest gains. Everything is about us,” Akesson said. “I am ready to talk with others”Turnout in the election was reported at 84.4 percent, up from 83 percent in 2014.

China outlaws large underground Protestant church in Beijing-[Reuters]-YAHOONEWS-By Christian Shepherd-September 11, 2018

BEIJING (Reuters) - Beijing city authorities have banned one of the largest unofficial Protestant churches in the city and confiscated "illegal promotional materials", amid a deepening crackdown on China's "underground" churches.The Zion church had for years operated with relative freedoms, hosting hundreds of worshippers every weekend in an expansive specially renovated hall in north Beijing.But since April, after they rejected requests from authorities to install closed-circuit television cameras in the building, the church has faced growing pressure from the authorities and has been threatened with eviction.On Sunday, the Beijing Chaoyang district civil affairs bureau said that by organizing events without registering, the church was breaking rules forbidding mass gatherings and were now "legally banned" and its "illegal promotional material" had been confiscated, according to images of the notice sent to Reuters late on Sunday and confirmed by churchgoers."I fear that there is no way for us to resolve this issue with the authorities," Zion's Pastor Jin Mingri told Reuters.China's religious affairs and civil affairs bureaux did not immediately respond to requests for comment.China's constitution guarantees religious freedom, but since President Xi Jinping took office six years ago the government has tightened restrictions on religions seen as a challenge to the authority of the ruling Communist Party.Churches across China have faced new waves of harassment and pressure to register since a new set of regulations to govern religious affairs in China came into effect in February and heightened punishments for unofficial churches.In July, more than 30 of Beijing's hundreds of underground Protestant churches took the rare step of releasing a joint statement complaining of "unceasing interference" and the "assault and obstruction" of regular activities of believers since the new regulations came into effect.China's Christian believers are split between those who attend unofficial "house" or "underground" churches and those who attend government-sanctioned places of worship.Churchgoers were also given a notice from the district religious affairs bureau saying that the "great masses of believer must respect the rules and regulations and attend events in legally registered places of religious activity".Zion's attendees were also given pamphlets of officially sanctioned churches that they might attend instead.But for many worshippers and pastors, such as Jin, accepting the oversight and ultimate authority of the Communist Party would be a betrayal of their faith."On this land, the only one we can trust in is God," Jin said.(Reporting by Christian Shepherd; Editing by Michael Perry)

Moscow accuses US of using white phosphorous in Syria-Russian general claims weekend bombings targeting area controlled by Islamic State resulted in ‘fierce fires’-By AFP-TOI-SEP 11,18

MOSCOW — Russia on Sunday accused the United States of carrying out bombings using white phosphorous in eastern Syria against military targets in civilian areas, which is banned under international law.“Two American F-15 planes carried out bombings on September 8 (Saturday) targeting the area of Hajin in the Deir Ezzor region using incendiary phosphorous ammunition,” Russian general Vladimir Savtchenko said in a statement.“These strikes resulted in fierce fires. We are clarifying the information concerning possible deaths and injuries,” he added.In Syria, the jihadist Islamic State group still controls a pocket in Deir Ezzor between the Euphrates River and the Iraqi border, and also remains in the vast Syrian desert.An international coalition led by the United States is helping a coalition of Kurdish and Arab fighters from the Syrian Democratic Forces (FDS) which for months have been conducting an offensive to oust IS.The Russian army, which has been intervening militarily since 2015 in Syria in support of the forces of its ally President Bashar al-Assad, was accused in March by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights of having used incendiary bombs during the regime’s offensive against the rebel stronghold of Eastern Ghouta near Damascus.Moscow dismissed the allegation as a “shameless lie.”Use of white phosphorous is banned under the Geneva Convention for use against civilians and against legitimate military targets in areas with a major civilian population.

Russia prepares for biggest war games in its history-[AFP]-Maxime POPOV, Olga ROTENBERG-YAHOONEWS-September 10, 2018

Moscow (AFP) - Russia on Tuesday will launch the biggest military drills in its history involving 300,000 troops as well as Chinese soldiers, in a move NATO denounced as "exercising large-scale conflict".The week-long deployment alongside Chinese and Mongolian armies dubbed "Vostok-2018" (East-2018) will start in eastern Siberia on September 11.It comes at a time of escalating tensions between Moscow and the West over accusations of Russian interference in western affairs and the ongoing conflicts in Ukraine and Syria.The Russian army has compared the show of force to the USSR's 1981 war games that saw between 100,000 and 150,000 Warsaw Pact soldiers take part in "Zapad-81" (West-81) -- the largest military exercises of the Soviet era.But defence minister Sergei Shoigu said this time would be even larger, with 300,000 soldiers, 36,000 military vehicles, 1,000 planes and 80 warships taking part in the drills."Imagine 36,000 military vehicles moving at the same time: tanks, armoured personnel carriers, infantry fighting vehicles -- and all of this, of course, in conditions as close to a combat situation as possible," Shoigu said.The Russian army will roll out all of its latest additions for the event: Iskander missiles that can carry nuclear warheads, T-80 and T-90 tanks and its recent Su-34 and Su-35 fighter planes.At sea, the Russian fleet will deploy several frigates equipped with Kalibr missiles that have been used in Syria.Russia's previous military exercise in the region, Vostok-2014, was almost half the size, with 155,000 soldiers participating.The country's war games in Eastern Europe last year, Zapad-2017, saw 12,700 troops take part according to Moscow. Ukraine and the Baltic states said the true number was far bigger.- 'Future world war' -President Vladimir Putin is expected to attend Vostok-2018 after hosting an economic forum in Russia's far eastern city Vladivostok where his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping is one of the star guests.Russian military analyst Pavel Felgenhauer said the games were a "preparation for a future world war"."The army's General Staff believes this will take place after 2020 in the form of either a global war or a series of conflicts with magnitude," he said."The enemy is the United States and its allies."According to Felgenhauer, China's participation -- although modest with only 3,200 men -- will be a key factor at the drills."It's not just about a sign or a message, but about a preparation for a real-life war of great magnitude," he said.This opinion was shared by NATO, which said that Vostok-2018 "demonstrates Russia's focus on exercising large-scale conflict"."It fits into a pattern we have seen over some time -- a more assertive Russia, significantly increasing its defence budget and its military presence," said the alliance's spokesman Dylan White.Russia has denied the drills are a cause for worry."Vostok-2018 is far from NATO's area of responsibility and does not affect the security of its member states," the Russian foreign ministry’s spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.- Growing number of drills -Relations between Russia and the West declined sharply in 2014 with Moscow's annexation of Crimea and the subsequent conflict in eastern Ukraine.Since then Moscow has increased the number of its large-scale military exercises in the Caucasus, the Baltic and the Arctic.At the same time the Kremlin has accused NATO of expanding westwards and threatening Russian national security.This week, Russia held military exercises in the Mediterranean.More than 25 warships and around 30 planes took part in the drills, as Russia increased its military presence in Syria where it intervened to help the Bashar al-Assad regime in 2015.Around 2,200 Ukrainian, American and other NATO soldiers took part in military exercises in western Ukraine in early September.Last month, the Kremlin's spokesman said Russia's "ability to defend itself in the current international situation which is often aggressive and unfriendly to our country is justified, essential and without alternative".

Iran nuclear chief: New Natanz nuclear facility producing advanced centrifuges-Ali Akbar Salehi says Tehran mulling withdrawal from nuclear deal, warns ‘everyone will suffer’ if 2015 accord collapses entirely-By TOI staff-SEPT 11,18

Iranian nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi told state media on Sunday that a facility to produce advanced centrifuges at the Natanz nuclear plant has been completed.Salehi, the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, told the official IRNA news agency that [supreme leader Ayatollah] “Khamenei ordered us to set up and complete a very advanced hall for the construction of modern centrifuges, and this hall has now been fully equipped and set up,” according to Reuters.Salehi said Khamenei had also instructed to begin development of nuclear-powered ships, and that project would take 10-15 years to complete.Though he said the nuclear-powered ships and new centrifuges would operate within the limits of the nuclear deal Iran signed with world powers, Salehi warned that Tehran was considering abandoning the accord in the wake of the US withdrawal earlier this year.Salehi suggested Iran “might… suspend some of the limitations within the nuclear agreement, for example on the volume and level of enrichment.”“And the final scenario can be a complete exit from the nuclear accord, which I hope will never happen, with the help of [the remaining signatories], because everyone would suffer,” he was quoted as saying.Under the 2015 deal — which limits Iran’s nuclear program in return for sanctions relief — Tehran is allowed to build and test parts for advanced centrifuges with certain restrictions on quantity.Following the withdrawal of the United States in May, the other parties — Britain, France, Germany, China, Russia and the EU — have vowed to provide Iran with enough economic benefits to keep the agreement alive.But Tehran is increasingly skeptical that those countries can counter the effects of renewed US sanctions, which have already battered Iran’s economy.Iran has repeatedly said it will resume high-level uranium enrichment if the agreement falls apart.Earlier this month, supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Iran should be ready to “set aside” the agreement if it is no longer in the country’s national interests.The International Atomic Energy Agency has repeatedly stated that Iran is sticking to its commitments.The administration of US President Donald Trump says the deal did not prevent Iran from eventually working towards a nuclear weapon — which Tehran has denied it is seeking.Agencies contributed to this report.

PYONGYANG (AFP) — Thousands of North Korean troops followed by artillery and tanks paraded through Pyongyang Sunday as the nuclear-armed country celebrated its 70th birthday, but it refrained from displaying the intercontinental ballistic missiles that have seen it hit with sanctions.The missiles’ conspicuous absence drew praise from US President Donald Trump who called it “a big and very positive statement from North Korea.”“Thank you To Chairman Kim. We will both prove everyone wrong!” Trump tweeted. “There is nothing like good dialogue from two people that like each other! Much better than before I took office.”North Korean leader Kim Jong Un also used the parade to show off his friendship with China, raising the hand of President Xi Jinping’s envoy as they saluted the crowd together afterwards.North Korea has just staged their parade, celebrating 70th anniversary of founding, without the customary display of nuclear missiles. Theme was peace and economic development. “Experts believe that North Korea cut out the nuclear missiles to show President Trump……— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 9, 2018-its commitment to denuclearize.” @FoxNews This is a big and very positive statement from North Korea. Thank you To Chairman Kim. We will both prove everyone wrong! There is nothing like good dialogue from two people that like each other! Much better than before I took office.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 9, 2018-The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), as the North is officially known, was proclaimed on September 9, 1948, three years after Moscow and Washington divided the peninsula between them in the closing days of the Second World War.Such set-piece dates are a mainstay of the North’s political calendar, and have for years been opportunities to demonstrate progress in its quest for a missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to the United States.But too militaristic a display this time might have risked upsetting the recent diplomatic dalliance on the peninsula, after Kim’s Singapore meeting with Trump in June and his third summit with the South’s President Moon Jae-in due in Pyongyang later this month.After a 21-gun salute, dozens of infantry units marched through Kim Il Sung Square, some in night-vision goggles or wielding rocket-propelled grenade launchers, as the current leader — the founder’s grandson — looked on from a rostrum.Li Zhanshu, one of the seven members of the Chinese Communist party’s Politburo Standing Committee, the country’s most powerful body, sat next to him, the two of them occasionally exchanging comments.Armoured personnel carriers, multiple rocket launchers and tanks followed, with biplanes flying overhead in a ’70’ formation.At one point jets trailing red, white and blue smoke — the colours of the North Korean flag — roared above the Juche Tower, the stone monument to Kim Il Sung’s political philosophy.Finally came the missiles, the traditional climax of the parades. But the only ones on show were short-range battlefield devices, the Kumsong-3 anti-ship cruise missile, and the Pongae-5 surface-to-air weapon.There was no sign of the Hwasong-14 and -15 rockets that can reach the mainland United States and changed the strategic balance when they were first tested last year.“It looks like the North Koreans really tried to tone down the military nature of this,” said Chad O’Carroll, managing director of Korea Risk Group.Any display of longer-range missiles would have cast doubt on North Korea’s commitment to denuclearisation, he added.-‘Long live!’-Pyongyang has not publicly stated a willingness to give up the weapons it has spent decades developing at huge political and financial cost, but it has been on a diplomatic charm offensive for months.In April, Kim declared that the North’s nuclear programme had been successfully completed and “socialist economic construction” was the new strategic priority.In a speech Sunday, ceremonial president Kim Yong Nam lauded the country and its army as “the strongest in the world”, but did not mention nuclear weapons.And immediately after the parade thousands of citizens rallied through the square, alongside floats displaying economic themes and calls for Korean reunification — the peninsula has remained split since the 1950-53 Korean War ended in an armistice rather than a peace treaty.Thousands of accompanying citizens waved bouquets and flags, chanting “Long live” to the leader.-Honured guest-Diplomatic invitations for the anniversary went out around the world, but the only head of state who attended was Mauritanian president Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz — although AFP spotted French actor Gerard Depardieu seated in a section below the main tribune.Afterwards Kim and Li saluted the cheering crowd, the North Korean raising his guest’s hand into the air.Beijing is its neighbour’s key diplomatic protector and trade partner, and after years in the deep freeze over the North’s weapons ambitions ties have warmed rapidly this year, with Kim visiting China three times to meet President Xi Jinping.Speculation that Xi might reciprocate for the anniversary did not come to pass — Hu Jintao remains the last Chinese president to visit in 2005 — but O’Carroll said Pyongyang appeared to want to promote its friendship with Beijing.“China is still a very important player and its presence here with such a high level delegation is intended in some way to remind the US of that,” he said.Washington is seeking the “final, fully verified denuclearisation of North Korea”, while Pyongyang has only publicly affirmed its commitment to working towards the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, a euphemism open to interpretation on both sides.The process has become bogged down in recent weeks, with the North demanding a formal declaration that the Korean War is over, and the South’s Moon caught between his neighbour and his ally.“Apparently Kim Jong Un thought that now was not time to unnecessarily provoke Trump,” said Kim Yong-hyun, professor of North Korean studies at Dongguk University in Seoul.But some things do not change.Many of the tanks and other vehicles at the parade still bore a slogan on the front: “Destroy the US imperialist aggressors, the sworn enemy of the DPRK people!”

Iran Guard claims missile attack on separatist Kurds in Iraq-Tehran releases footage of strike on Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan base said to have killed 11 and injured 50 in response to resumption of PDKI hit-and-run attacks in Iran-By Amir Vahdat-TOI-10 September 2018

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps on Sunday claimed responsibility for a missile attack targeting an Iraqi base of a Kurdish separatist group.Iranian state television aired footage of surface-to-surface missiles launching Saturday toward the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan base in Iraq, as well as drone footage of the base in the aftermath of the strike, which the separatists say killed at least 11 people and wounded 50.The footage’s release appeared to be a stark warning by the Guard to the separatist group, known by the acronym PDKI, which has resumed hit-and-run attacks in Iran after some two decades of uneasy peace. A Kurdish attack in July killed at least 10 Iranian border guards, likely sparking the Guard’s show of force.“The Iranian armed forces won’t allow terrorists to again threaten the country’s national security,” the Guard said in a statement, warning that its future operations would be even “more crushing.”Video aired by state television showed the short-range missiles being fired from mobile launchers in a field in an undisclosed location. The semi-official Tasnim news agency, believed to be close to the paramilitary Guard, identified the missiles fired as Fateh 110-Bs. Those missiles are believed to have a range of up to 300 kilometers (185 miles), according to the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies.Tasnim said the missiles traveled some 220 kilometers (135 miles) to reach the base in Koya, in northern Iraq.The Kurdish satellite news channel Rudaw reported that the secretary-general of the PDKI, Mustafa Mawludi, and his predecessor, Khalid Azizi, were wounded in the strike.The Iraqi Foreign Ministry on Sunday issued a statement criticizing Iran’s attack, saying it “rejects the violation of Iraqi sovereignty by bombing any target within Iraqi territory without prior coordination with the Iraqi authorities to spare civilians the effects of such operations.”Iraq and Iran have close political and military ties, and Tehran provided extensive military support in the war against the Islamic State group.Saturday’s attack comes after the PDKI accused Iran on Friday of carrying out “indiscriminate shelling” targeting the border region.Kurds represent about 10 percent of Iran’s population of 80 million people, with many living in the mountainous northwest that borders Iraq and Turkey.A breakaway Kurdish republic backed by the Soviets briefly emerged after World War II and a Kurdish uprising followed in the years after Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution. A guerrilla campaign by PDKI fighters in Iran continued into the mid-1990s. The PDKI declared a unilateral cease-fire with Iran in 1996 after fighting in northern Iraq between warring Kurdish forces backed by Iraq and Iran.Kurdish resentments have grown recently, buoyed by Kurdish control of areas in northern Iraq. The death of a Kurdish maid at a hotel in the northwestern city of Mahabad in May 2015 sparked unrest by local Kurds as opposition groups alleged Iranian security forces had a hand in it.Since 2016, clashes have erupted between Kurdish fighters and Iranian security forces, including the Guard, leading to casualties on both sides. The PDKI, operating out of northern Iraq, claimed many of those attacks, which prompted Iranian forces to shell Kurdish positions just across the Iraqi border in response.

Army shoots and kills Palestinian trying to sabotage Gaza border fence-IDF says it also arrested three suspects attempting to cross into Israel with a pair of knives; dozens converge on Erez crossing in latest protest-By TOI staff and Agencies-10 September 2018

IDF soldiers on Sunday shot and killed a Palestinian who repeatedly tried to sabotage the Gaza Strip border fence, the army said.“Troops recognised a suspect who approached the security fence and attempted to sabotage it,” an English-language army statement said, adding that they opened fire at the man.He was given medical treatment but “later on, the suspect succumbed to his wounds,” it added.Palestinian security officials said that the dead man was Atef Mohammed Saleh, 32, from Jabaliya in the northern Gaza Strip, which is near the border with Israel.Earlier Sunday, the army said soldiers identified and arrested three Gazans attempting to cross the fence surrounding the northern Gaza Strip. The Israeli troops uncovered a pair of knives on the suspects upon their apprehension.The IDF was unable to confirm whether the three suspects were the same ones that Palestinian media reported had been shot and wounded after approaching the northern Gaza border fence near the Erez crossing.The Shihab Palestinian news agency reported that two residents of Beit Hanoun on Gaza’s northeastern edge were shot by IDF troops.Dozens of Palestinians were protesting and attempting to approach the border fence near the Erez border crossing in the north of the enclave.There were no immediate reports of further casualties at the protests.On Saturday, the IDF said it would investigate the events surrounding the recent deaths of two Palestinians at the Gaza border, including that of a 16-year-old who was shot on Friday during protests and who succumbed to his wounds on Saturday.Palestinian media outlets released a video clip which they said showed the incident and appeared to show the teen throwing an object before waving and clapping, with his hands in the air at the time he was shot. (Warning: Graphic content.) He was named as Ahmad Abu Tuyur.“In the violent disturbances along the fence, IDF soldiers responded with riot control measures and acted in accordance with open-fire regulations,” said the military in a statement Saturday. “It is claimed that two people died in the violent disturbances. The events will be reviewed by the relevant command echelons.”The Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza said Friday that a 17-year-old was also killed and that nearly 400 Gazans were wounded in the violent protests.Around 7,000 Palestinians took part in the weekly clashes.The Israeli military said demonstrators hurled rocks and Molotov cocktails at soldiers, who responded with tear gas and other less-lethal means. Troops fired at Palestinians who attempted to breach the border fence and enter Israel.The army said it struck two Hamas posts in the Strip. One was attacked in response to a grenade thrown towards troops along the border, while another was hit after protesters damaged military infrastructure.Balloons with incendiary devices attached were again flown across the border, after being largely absent in recent weeks. Two fires broke out in Israel as a result of the arson attacks.Friday’s protests were the first since the US announced it was cutting all aid to UNRWA, the UN agency responsible for Palestinian humanitarian assistance.Recent weeks have seen relatively less violence at the border than at the height of the protests some months ago.Earlier Friday, Israeli aircraft opened fire at a group of Palestinians who were trying to send incendiary balloons over the border in the northern Gaza Strip, the military said. Two people were lightly injured, according to reports in Gaza.There have long been reports of talks on a UN- and Egypt-brokered truce agreement that would end the months-long flareup of hostilities — the most severe since the 2014 war.The surge of violence in Gaza began in March with a series of protests along the border that were dubbed the “March of Return.” The clashes, which Gaza’s Hamas rulers orchestrated, have included rock and Molotov cocktail attacks on troops, as well as attempts to breach the border fence and attack Israeli soldiers.Since the protests began in March, at least 127 Palestinians have been killed in the clashes, according to a tally from The Associated Press. Hamas, which seeks to destroy Israel, has acknowledged that dozens of those killed were its members. During that time, a Gaza sniper killed an Israeli soldier.During the demonstrations, protesters have also launched incendiary kites and balloons into Israel, sparking fires that have destroyed forests, burned crops, and killed livestock. Over 7,000 acres of land have been burned, causing millions of shekels in damages, according to Israeli officials.

Quân đội khối NATO đang thao dượt tại vùng Lviv, phía Tây nước Ukraine. Bốn ngày trước khi cuộc tập dượt chấm dứt, hôm Thứ Ba, 11 Tháng Chín, Nga bắt đầu một cuộc thao diễn quân sự lớn ở Siberia. Quân đội Trung Quốc và Mongolia cũng tham dự.

Cuộc tập trận Rapid Trident 2018 của NATO rất khiêm tốn, chỉ có 2,200 quân tham dự, mặc dù gồm 14 nước, kể cả Mỹ. Cuộc thao diễn Vostok 2018 của Nga có thể nói là “vĩ đại,” với 300,000 quân (một phần ba quân số), 36,000 xe thiết giáp, hàng ngàn phi cơ chiến đấu trên bốn căn cứ không quân, 80 chiến hạm biểu dương trong ba vùng, biển Nhật Bản, biển Okhotsk và eo biển Bering.

NATO nói thẳng mục đích của cuộc tập trận là bảo vệ an ninh và chủ quyền của Ukraine, một nước trước đây thuộc Liên Bang Xô Viết, mới bị Nga chiếm mất vùng Crimea năm 2014.

Bộ Quốc Phòng Nga thì công bố mục đích của Vostok 2018 hoàn toàn có tính cách “phòng ngự.” Họ muốn quân đội “sẵn sàng chống cự mọi cuộc xâm lăng.” Bộ Quốc Phòng Nga công nhận đây là cuộc thao diễn lớn nhất, kể từ cuộc tập trận Zapad 1981 ở vùng biên giới cạnh các Đông Âu nước ở phía Bắc. Trong tiếng Nga Vostok là hướng Đông, Zapad là Tây.

Trung Cộng gởi hơn 3,000 quân sĩ, sáu phi cơ, 26 trực thăng trong đó có những chiếc Mi-171, Z-9 và Z-19 mua của Nga; cùng 900 thiết giáp và thiết vận xa tham dự Vostok 2018. Quân đội Cộng Hòa Mông Cổ cũng có mặt, để gọi đây là một cuộc thao diễn quốc tế.

Hai ông Vladimir Putin và Tập Cận Bình sẽ cùng đến quan sát một phần cuộc thao diễn. Điều này cho thấy một mục tiêu ông Putin nhắm tới là: Cho cả thế giới thấy Nga và Trung Cộng đang sáp lại gần nhau.

Trong những cuộc tập trận Vostok trước đây quân đội Nga cũng được điều động để chống một đạo quân xâm lăng giả tưởng, mà ai cũng suy diễn quân xâm lăng đến từ Trung Quốc. Nhưng năm nay, hiển nhiên “quân địch” không phải là quân Tàu nữa! Chắc cũng không phải là Nhật Bản, vì Thủ Tướng Nhật Shinzo Abe sắp đến họp mặt với Tổng Thống Vladimir Putin và Chủ Tịch Tập Cận Bình ở Vladivostok trong một Hội Đàm Kinh Tế Đông Phương, trong thời gian cuộc tập trận diễn ra. Cuối cùng, chỉ có thể đoán “quân địch giả tưởng” trong cuộc tập trận của Nga là quân Mỹ!

Trung Cộng và Nga đã từng đối nghịch nhau từ thời Stalin và Mao Trạch Đông; cuộc tranh hùng lên điểm cao nhất vào năm 1969, khi hai bên bắn nhau bên dòng sông Áp Lục. Nhân cơ hội đó, Tổng Thống Mỹ Richard Nixon đã mở đường giao thiệp với Chủ Tịch Mao, đánh dấu bằng cuộc gặp gỡ lịch sử năm 1972.

Ông Nixon đã “đánh lá bài Trung Quốc” trong chiến lược cô lập hóa Liên Xô, làm cho khối Cộng Sản tách đôi và không bao giờ ráp lại được nữa cho đến khi Liên Bang Xô Viết tan hàng.

Bây giờ đến lượt Putin, cũng muốn dùng Trung Cộng như một quân bài lập mặt trận chống Mỹ. Năm 1989, Mikhail Gorbachev đã nối lại tình hữu nghị với Trung Cộng trước khi đế quốc Liên Xô sụp đổ, và sau đó Boris Yeltsin, Vladimir Putin vẫn tiếp tục.

Ông Putin có lý do để thắt chặt bang giao với nước láng giềng phía Nam; vì Nga đang bị cả khối Tây phương phong tỏa kinh tế sau khi cưỡng chiếm Crimea. Nga đã ký những hợp đồng cung cấp dầu, khí cho Trung Quốc, và hoan nghênh tiền vốn của Bắc Kinh đem đầu tư vào công nghiệp năng lượng. Mặc dù giá dầu lửa đã tăng lên gần đây, nhưng kinh tế Nga còn trì trệ vì vẫn nằm trong tay những đại gia thân cận với ông Putin. Hành động can thiệp của Nga vào Syria, kết thân với Iran chống các nước Á Rập theo phái Sun Ni Hồi Giáo khiến Nga sẽ còn bị tẩy chay. Trước viễn tượng bị cô lập trong hàng chục năm tới, Putin muốn chứng tỏ cho các nước Tây phương biết rằng ông ta còn có nhiều cơ hội khác.

Nga đã phát triển lực lượng tàu ngầm, mở đường đi vào vùng Bắc Cực, đe dọa thế giới với các loại chiến đấu cơ và bom hạch tâm mới. Trong tuần này, hai chiếc tàu chở dầu lớn của Nga, với dung tích 172,000 mét khối đã tới Giang Tô trong vòng 19 ngày nhờ đi đường tắt qua Bắc Cực, thay vì thường đi qua kênh Suez mất 35 ngày. Trung Cộng gọi con đường biển mới này là Đường Tơ Lụa Bắc Cực.

Màn tập trận “đại bàng” đang bắt đầu cũng nhằm biểu diễn sức mạnh quân sự của Nga để làm nản lòng các nước đang duy trì cuộc cấm vận vì vụ Crimea năm 2014 và Nga dùng tay sai âm mưu lật đổ chính quyền Ukraine. Nếu phong tỏa kinh tế không làm cho Nga yếu đi về quân sự thì tiếp tục để làm gì? Tiếp tục cấm vận Nga thì sẽ chỉ đẩy nước Nga vào tay Trung Cộng, lợi hơn hay hại hơn? Đó là những thông điệp ông Putin muốn gửi đi!

Đối nội, Putin muốn dùng sức mạnh quân sự khích động tinh thần dân tộc tự tôn của dân Nga để củng cố chế độ độc tài phe đảng của ông. Ông đã cho tái lập các cuộc duyệt binh ở Quảng Trường Đỏ vì mục đích đó.

Trung Cộng đến tham dự cuộc tập trận Vostok 2018 cũng nhằm học tập kỹ thuật điều động quân đội của Nga trong một chiến dịch rộng lớn. Từ hơn nửa thế kỷ nay, quân đội Trung Cộng chưa thực sự tham dự một cuộc chiến lớn nào. Họ thiếu “kinh nghiệm chiến trường” trong việc điều phối hàng trăm ngàn quân, trong kỹ thuật thông tin ngoài mặt trận, sử dụng các khí giới mới, đối đầu với các vũ khí mới của quân địch.

Trong Vostok 2018, Không Quân Nga thao dượt cả hệ thống chống loại hỏa tiễn Cruise bay thấp là mặt đất, mà quân đội Mỹ đã sử dụng nhiều lần ở Iraq, Lybia và Syria. Quân Trung Cộng đã được trang bị với loại hỏa tiễn nhắm mục tiêu này nhưng chưa từng được đem thử trên mặt trận.

Hai ông Tập Cận Bình và Vladimir Putin cũng chia sẻ một mối lo chung là luôn luôn phải đề phòng một cuộc nổi dậy của người dân bị trị trong nước họ. Không một chế độ độc tài nào có thể ngủ yên vì họ biết dân chúng chỉ chịu đựng nhất thời, chứ không bao giờ bị khuất phục hoàn toàn. Cuộc tập trận Vostok 2018 sẽ cho thấy khi cần điều động quân đội dẹp tan những cuộc cách mạng thì phải làm gì.

Để ve vãn ông Tập Cận Bình, ông Putin đã cho bán những vũ khí tối tân nhất như hỏa tiễn S-400 và phi cơ SU-35 loại mới nhất. Trong chuyến công du vào Tháng Tư năm nay tới Matskơva, một người thân cận của ông Tập Cận Bình là Tướng Ngụy Phong Hòa (Wei Fenghe, 凤和), nguyên chỉ huy trưởng lực lượng hỏa tiễn của TQCG, đã tuyên bố rõ ràng: “Trung Quốc muốn cho nước Mỹ thấy mối giao hảo của quân đội mình với quân đội Nga.”
Nhưng tình hữu hảo giữa hai nước Nga, Hoa có thực sự chặt chẽ và bền vững hay không?

Về mặt kỹ thuật và kinh tế Trung Quốc không thể học hỏi (hoặc ăn trộm) được điều gì từ nước Nga để giúp họ phát triển cho bằng Mỹ và Châu Âu trong vài chục năm tới, như ông Tập Cận Bình đang nuôi tham vọng.

Di sản lịch sử cho thấy hai nước Nga, Trung không bao giờ tin nhau. Cuộc bang giao hoàn toàn dựa trên những tính toán vụ lợi mà không chia sẻ những giá trị cao hơn, cũng không được đặt trên những quy tắc bền vững như luật pháp quốc tế. Khi nào thấy bớt lợi lộc thì hai bên sẵn sàng chia tay.

Mà nước Nga không thể mang lợi cho nước Tàu, không có những thị trường tiêu thụ lớn, cũng không có tư bản và kỹ thuật mạnh để trao đổi. Ông Tập Cận Bình đã lợi dụng thế yếu của ông Putin để ký những hợp đồng về năng lượng với giá rẻ, nhưng ngay cả vai trỏ của dầu lửa và khí đốt cũng mất tầm quan trọng trong nền kinh tế hiện đại!

Một điều ai cũng thấy trước mắt, là bọn đầu sỏ cầm đầu guồng máy nhà nước và các đại gia Nga không gửi tiền hoặc gửi con cái du học sang Bắc Kinh hay Thượng Hải mà vẫn gửi qua London hay New York!

Nhưng nước Mỹ vẫn nên rút ra một bài học khi chứng kiến cuộc bắt tay thân thiện giữa Vladimir Putin và Tập Cận Bình. Thời 1970, Mỹ đóng vai chủ động trong kế hoạch ly gián Liên Xô và Trung Cộng. Hiện nay Mỹ đã mất vai trò cầm chịch. Thời 1970, trong ba nước thì Trung Cộng yếu nhất. Ngày nay, Nga là nước yếu nhất, còn Trung Quốc đang lên. Trung Cộng không những đang tiến vào Châu Phi, Châu Âu và vùng Trung Đông, mà có thể sẽ bao vây Nga với vòng đai các nước Trung Á trước đây thuộc Liên Bang Xô Viết.

Đối thủ của Mỹ trong thời gian tới không phải Nga mà là Trung Cộng. Để đối phó với chế độ độc tài đảng trị và âm mưu bành trướng của Trung Cộng, nước Mỹ phải thắt chặt thêm quan hệ với những quốc gia tự do dân chủ dựa trên quyền lợi hỗ tương và chia sẻ các giá trị chung. Mỹ không thể đứng cô lập mà phải đóng vai tích cực bảo vệ những lý tưởng dân chủ tự do, tôn trọng luật pháp, củng cố những định chế quốc tế duy trì những giá trị đó. (Ngô Nhân Dụng)
