  1. The U.S. government banned all use of Kaspersky Lab Inc. software in federal information systems, citing concerns about the Moscow-based security firm’s links to the Russian government and espionage efforts. All agencies will be required to identify any Kaspersky products they have used within 30 days and develop plans to discontinue their use, according to a directive from Elaine Duke, the acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. “This action is based on the information security risks presented by the use of Kaspersky products,” DHS said Wednesday in a statement. “The risk that the Russian government, whether acting on its own or in collaboration with Kaspersky, could capitalize on access provided by Kaspersky products to compromise federal information and information systems directly implicates U.S. national security.” Read more:

  2. I was just listening to MSNBC about the developments on this case. It appears that Donald Trump admitted to firing FBI director Comey over this investigation. (I need to find that audio again) Evidently the Treasury Department's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network has offered to hand over it's data to some Congressional panel. - Will the head of the US Treasury now be dismissed? Donald Trump's Financial Ties to Russian Oligarchs and Mobsters is also in question now with the Senate looking into his businesses. They also said that the firing of the 43 US Attorneys was also related. Are we witnessing an earthquake at the highest levels of the United States Government or what? Your thoughts? (Secular talk only please.)
  3. MOSCOW — Workers building stadiums for next year’s World Cup in Russia have faced repeated abuses and routinely gone unpaid for several months, according to a report by Human Rights Watch released on Wednesday. At a stadium in Yekaterinburg, some workers were required to work in temperatures of minus-25 degrees Celsius (minus-13 Fahrenheit) “without sufficient breaks for them to warm themselves,” the report states. “FIFA is essentially expecting us to take their word for it that their work has improved workers’ lives,” Jane Buchanan, the report’s author, told The Associated Press. “This is supposed to be the reformed FIFA, moving away from secrecy and a lot of deals behind closed doors.” At least 17 workers have died on World Cup construction sites, according to Building and Wood Workers’ International, a trade union. Known deaths include workers killed in falls and the case of a worker from North Korea who died of a reported heart attack at the stadium in St. Petersburg, which will host the final of the Confederations Cup on July 2, as well as World Cup matches in 2018.

  6. Weeks after Jehovah’s Witnesses was banned and its property confiscated by Russian government over purported links to extremism, a petition jointly opened by Non-governmental Organizations, calling for ban of the Adventist Church, has received over 12 million signatures. A notice at the Moscow City Court says hearings on a proposed ban on Seventh-day Adventist Church would begin in May 2017, according to Fox News 24. The Adventist Church has also been accused of violating an anti-terrorism legislation with their evangelism ministry. The Christian denomination has been grouped with Jehovah’s Witnesses and ISIS as “Extremists and Terrorists” by the various organizations. Ekaterina, a state attorney says “Russia takes cases of Extremism and Terrorism very serious and a ban is expected to be placed on the Adventists in May”. The law — part of a package of anti-terrorism legislation — outlines severe restrictions on evangelistic activity in Russia that, among other things, limit religious activity to registered church buildings and prohibit the free distribution of religious literature. Individuals who disobey face fines of up to 50,000 rubles (U.S.$765), while organizations could be fined up to 1 million rubles ($15,250).’

  7. The Russian Defense Ministry says the US missile strike on a Syrian airfield wasn't very effective, with only 23 out of 59 Tomahawk missiles reaching their target. The locations of the remaining 36 missiles’ impact is now unknown, the ministry added.
  8. Moscow (CNN)The thousands of Russians who took to the streets over the weekend may not have vented their fury directly at Vladimir Putin, but the President certainly took note of the message. After the largest mass demonstrations in years, when crowds across the country took part in anti-corruption rallies, the Interior Ministry has warned that it will use the full extent of its powers to confront any future unauthorized gatherings. Opposition supporters take part in the anti-corruption rally in central Moscow. But the warning has not impressed or deterred a younger generation of protesters who are fed up with rampant nepotism, exasperated by the lack of accountability, and stifled by the lack of opportunities on offer in Russia today. Their grievances are directed less at Putin himself than at a system that has institutionalized graft and accelerated inequality. In some ways they are reminiscent of the frustration of younger, educated Arabs in Cairo and Tunis in 2011, but it is unclear if Russia's anti-corruption movement can effect real change. Riot police officers detain a protester during the rally in Moscow. In Moscow, where the largest of dozens of protests took place, at least 500 people were detained -- carried and frog-marched into police vehicles. The authorities had warned that the rally, called by opposition leader Alexey Navalny, was against the law. A young geologist called Sergey Pravov was among those arrested. "We started singing the national anthem," he told CNN. He added with a smile: "We just got to the 'free country' part, when we were taken by the police and thrown into the bus." He told CNN that young people had taken part because they "are tired of the impunity of officials and their children and relatives who can get away with anything. " "They are tired of living below the poverty line while people they pay to rule wisely are swimming in gold," Pravov says. Continue reading

  10. Putin sanciona lei que permite bater na mulher uma vez por ano na Rússia Vladimir Putin sancionou a lei que assegura aos maridos russos o direito de bater em suas mulheres e filhos uma vez por ano, com penas atenuadas. As penas mais graves, que eram aplicadas a toda agressão doméstica, agora só servirão para quem provocar fraturas em ossos, ou para quem agredir duas vezes em período inferior a 12 meses. Quem só causar sangramento sem fratura, por exemplo, no máximo paga uma multa ou, no máximo, uma pena de 15 dias de prisão................... ...................Além disso, membros da Igreja Ortodoxa se posicionaram a favor da mudança, já que se for praticada “dentro do razoável” a violência contra a mulher “faz parte da tradição russa” e que eliminá-la seria atender a uma “pressão do Ocidente”. “Tem coisas acontecendo na Europa do Norte que nem Hitler teria sonhado”, disse o chefe da comissão de assuntos familiares do Patriarcado Ortodoxo Russo, padre Dmitry Smirnov, ao The Guardian.

  11. Around 2,000 people gathered at Saint Petersburg's Field of Mars to denounce plans to hand over the city's iconic St. Isaac's cathedral to the Orthodox Church. One of St. Petersburg's most popular attractions, it is feared that the handover will result in restricted access for tourists, lead to the neglect of exhibits on display, and deprive the city of extra revenue.

  14. Washington (CNN)Sen. John McCain said Russian election-related hacks threaten to "destroy democracy" and faulted the American response as "totally paralyzed." McCain, the Arizona Republican who chairs the Senate Armed Services Committee, again called for a select committee to investigate the CIA's finding that Russia hacked Democrats' emails in a bid to help President-elect Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton. "This is the sign of a possible unraveling of the world order that was established after World War II, which has made one of the most peaceful periods in the history of the world," McCain told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union." "We're starting to see the strains and the unraveling of it, and that is because of the absolute failure of American leadership." "When America doesn't lead, a lot of other bad people do," he added. McCain's calls so far have been rejected by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, who have backed investigations but said they want to see them conducted through already-existing Senate and House committees. "This is serious business. If they're able to harm the electoral process, they may destroy democracy, which is based on free and fair elections," he said. But McCain said responsibility for cyber-security is spread too broadly today. "The responsibilities for cyber is spread over about four different committees in the Senate, and each doing their own thing, frankly, is not going to be the most efficient way of arriving at a conclusion," he said. In the interview, McCain spoke about the Russian hacking -- as well as China's seizure of a US underwater drone and the Syrian government's slaughter of the citizens of Aleppo -- in dire terms. In making another call for a select committee to investigate Russian hacking, McCain mocked President Barack Obama's statement Friday that he had personally told Russian President Vladimir Putin to "cut it out." "We need a select committee. We need to get to the bottom of this. We need to find out exactly what was done and what the implications of the attacks were, especially if they had an effect on our election," McCain said. "There's no doubt they were interfering and no doubt it was a cyber-attack. The question now is how much and what damage and what should the United States of America do? And so far, we've been totally paralyzed," he said. "I'm sure that when Vladimir Putin was told quote 'cut it out' unquote, I'm sure that Vladimir Putin immediately stopped all cyber-activities. The truth is, they are hacking every single day."
