Russia and NATO have failed to convince each other.
Russia on Thursday published the first compelling, from its point of view, evidence that the missile defence system that is deployed by NATO threatens Russia’s nuclear forces. It was done within the framework of the conference organised by the RF Defence Ministry that was aimed at “narrowing the gap of mistrust” on the missile defence issue between Russia and the West. However, the task was not fulfilled. NATO Deputy Secretary General Alexander Vershbow called the Russian presentation “unconvincing.” And Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Army Nikolai Makarov said that if Moscow’s concerns are not taken into account, it may stage a pre-emptive strike on NATO’s missile defence system in Europe.
Hackers Leave Aeroflot Without Tickets
The investigation estimated the attack at 150 million roubles.
The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office has approved and sent to the Tushino Court of Moscow a criminal case against an organised group, headed by Director General of ChronoPay payment system Pavel Vrublevsky. The businessman and his three accomplices are accused of carrying out a hacker attack on the website of the Russian air carrier Aeroflot due to which the electronic ticket sale system was actually paralysed for several days. The damage caused by the hackers is estimated at more than 150 million roubles.
Governor Corps Facing New Losses
Vyacheslav Nagovitsyn may become the 16th governor of those whom Dmitry Medvedev dismissed this year.
The United Russia party has launched consultations on candidates for the posts of the heads of Buryatia and the Leningrad Region. Kommersant sources in United Russia said it is “not accidentally,” hinting that Vyacheslav Nagovitsyn and Valery Serdyukov in the short run will also tender resignation. If not, then direct elections should be held in the regions they head.
