 The Taliban announced candidates for the role of ambassador to Russia

Zabiullah Mujahid

The government of Afghanistan, formed by the “Taliban” movement (recognized as a terrorist organization in Russia and banned), has identified candidates for the post of “ambassador” to Russia, said Zabiullah Mujahid, Deputy Minister of Information in the Taliban government, RIA Novosti reports. However, the Taliban intends to send an ambassador to Russia only after Moscow recognizes the Taliban government.

“Yes, but we will announce it (the name of the future & laquo; ambassador».& mdash; RBC) after the recognition of the government, ” Mujahid said, answering the question about whether the movement has possible candidates for appointment to the post of representative in Russia.

In early August, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani (who has now fled the country) dismissed the Afghan ambassador to Russia, Latif Bahand. Mukhtar Humayun was appointed acting Ambassador to Russia. In early September, the 1 TV channel, citing a statement from the Afghan Foreign Ministry, reported that the Afghan diplomatic mission in Russia will be headed by Said Tayeb Javad, who previously served as the ambassador of Afghanistan to the UK.

“The Deputy Minister of the Taliban government said that the movement also sent a request to the UN to appoint its own permanent representative. A representative of the political office of Suheil Shaheen is planning to send a representative of the Taliban to New York to work in the international organization, but the UN has not yet responded to the request.

Mujahid said that the Taliban government will ask other countries, including Qatar, to assist in obtaining a place in the UN. The Taliban are planning to turn to Russia for help on several issues, including the lifting of sanctions, and consider Moscow to be the new mediator between the Taliban and the UN.

“We ask her (Russia.& mdash; RBC) assistance in the peaceful settlement in the region, in Afghanistan in particular, as well as in the process of rebuilding our country, ” Mujahid said.

According to him, Afghanistan has started receiving humanitarian aid from Russia, Qatar, Pakistan, the UN and other countries, but the Taliban expect that the volume of this aid will increase.

“We are asking for additional help. Russia has promised us help, and we are waiting. When it will be, I do not know. <…> Russia can also help with its economic, trade and investment projects in Afghanistan, ” the deputy minister said.

On September 22, the Russian Foreign Ministry announced that special representatives for Afghanistan from Russia (Zamir Kabulov), China (Yue Xiaoyun) and Pakistan (Mohammad Saddiq) discussed with the leaders of the Taliban movement in Kabul the development of relations and the fight against terrorism. They held meetings with the Acting Prime Minister of Afghanistan in the Taliban government, Mullah Mohammad Hassan Akhund, Foreign Minister Amir Khan Mottaki and other representatives of the terrorist movement. The special representatives of the three countries promised to support the Taliban in the fight against terrorism and drug trafficking.

The Taliban seized almost the entire territory of the country in August and announced plans to restore the Islamic Emirate. This was the name of an unrecognized state on the territory of Afghanistan, which in 1996–2001 was under the control of the Taliban, in which women could not appear on the street without men, and girls could not go to school.

After the Taliban came to power in Afghanistan, the country’s president Ashraf Ghani fled to the UAE.

The leader of the Taliban, Habitullah Akhundzada, said in September that the new government, which will be formed by the militants, will ensure compliance with sharia law, take care of the rights of the disadvantaged and develop trade. He promised that the new government will take measures “to protect human rights, the rights of minorities, as well as the rights of disadvantaged groups within the requirements of the holy religion of Islam”. The Taliban promised to stone people only by a court decision.

The Taliban called the cutting off of hands important “for ensuring security”

TThe Alibis plan to bring back corporal punishment in Afghanistan, including executions and amputation of limbs According to a representative of the terrorist movement, corporal punishment, such as amputation of limbs, “has a deterrent effect.” Whether they will be used publicly, the new government has not yet decided

 The Taliban called cutting off hands important

The terrorist movement “Taliban” (banned in Russia), which has seized power in Afghanistan, intends to revive the practice of executions and corporal punishment in the country, including cutting off limbs. Mullah Nuruddin Turabi, one of the founders of the movement, said this in an interview with the Associated Press.

During the previous Taliban rule (1996–2001), Turabi was the Minister of Justice and headed the Ministry of Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (the department served as a religious police, AP notes). In the new government, he runs the prison service. Turabi is included in the UN sanctions list.

“Cutting off hands is necessary to ensure security,” Turabi said, noting that the measure ” has a deterrent effect.” Now the Taliban government is deciding whether to apply punishments in public.

The representative of the terrorist movement rejected the indignation of the world community about the executions that the militants staged in front of the crowd during the previous arrival of kvlasti. Most of them were held at a sports stadium in Kabul, AP writes. Those convicted of murder were shot in the head by relatives of his victims, and those accused of theft had their hands cut off.

“Everyone criticized us for punishments at the stadium, but we never said anything about their laws and punishments,” Turabi said.& mdash; No one can tell us what our laws should be. We will follow Islam and will establish our laws based on the Koran.

The militants had previously promised to avoid lynching in society. All punishments, such as executions or stoning, will be carried out only by a court decision, a representative of the terrorist movement said in August.

On August 15, the Taliban took control of the capital of Afghanistan, Kabul, and announced the end of the war with the resistance forces in the country. This happened after the American troops began to leave Afghanistan. As soon as the Taliban occupied Kabul, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani fled to the UAE. On September 7, the Taliban presented a new composition of the government.

The positions of the Taliban, according to the militants, have softened compared to what life looked like under the rule of the Taliban from 1996 to 2001. In particular, Turabi said, now the militants will allow television and mobile phones, ” because this is a human need and we take it seriously.” According to him, the militants consider the media as a way to spread their ideas.

The Moscow authorities explained why they did not agree on the action of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation

The declared venue for the meeting of deputies with the voters of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation on Pushkin Square does not meet the requirements of the law, the authorities did not agree on the action

 The Moscow authorities explained why they did not agree on the action of the Communist Party

The place that the Communist Party chose for a mass event in Moscow in the format of a meeting of deputies with voters does not meet the requirements of the law, the press service of the Moscow Department of regional Security and anti-corruption told RBC.

The mayor’s office noted that they received an application for a rally in the city center, but did not coordinate it due to coronavirus restrictions.

The authorities drew attention to the fact that ” at present, some initiators of this action (the Communist Party of the Russian Federation initially notified about plans to hold a rally against election violations.& mdash; RBC) declare that it will be held in the format of a meeting of deputies with voters and through the resources of the Internet and some mass media, they are spreading calls to take part in it. However, according to the legislation, a State Duma deputy can meet with voters “within the territory defined by this State Duma deputy, in premises, specially designated places, as well as in courtyard territories,” the authorities explained. Such meetings are possible provided that they do not disrupt the operation of life support facilities, transport, social infrastructure, communications, they noted.

“We emphasize that the territory declared for the promotion does not meet the specified requirements and & lt;…”the use of special conditions for holding meetings of deputies with voters for the implementation of other goals, including the expression and formation of opinions, making demands on various issues of the political, economic,social and cultural life of the country and foreign policy issues, is unacceptable,” the Department of Regional Security said.

The authorities called on the party to refrain from holding the planned action, and citizens from participating in it and warned that otherwise they could be brought to justice.

The leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, Gennady Zyuganov, in response to the warnings of the authorities, said that the planned meeting with deputies is absolutely legal, RIA Novosti reports.

Earlier, the Communists had already been refused to hold rallies planned after the elections, due to coronavirus restrictions. The party notified the authorities of its plans even before the announcement of the voting results. After the Communist Party was not allowed to hold rallies, State Duma deputy and leader of the capital’s Communists Valery Rashkin organized a protest action in the format of a meeting with deputies. The participants demanded to cancelresults of the State Duma elections. On September 23, it became known about the detention of several participants of a rally against election violations, including Sergey Vlasov, a municipal deputy of the Pechatniki district. He was charged with Part 5 of Article 20.2 of the Administrative Code (violation by a participant of a public event of the established procedure for holding a meeting, rally). Later it became known that several dozen people were brought to justice.

PACE clarified the admission rules after the demarche of the Russian delegation

Rdelegates vaccinated with drugs recognized in their countries can work at the sites of the Council of Europe, PACE reported after the Russian delegation refused to participate in the assembly session in person due to covid restrictions

 The PACE clarified the admission rules after the demarche of the Russian delegation

Plenary Session Hall of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg

For all members of the Council of Europe, there are uniform rules for working on the platforms of the Parliamentary Assembly of the organization, the PACE press service told RBC. On Thursday, the Russian delegation refused to take part in its work in person, accusing the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and the French authorities of discriminating against Russians vaccinated with the Sputnik V vaccine, which is not recognized in the EU.

“Official visitors to the sites of the Council of Europe can use any vaccines licensed in the member countries of the Council of Europe, which includes, of course, the V-Satellite vaccine. All visitors are asked to fill out a “Declaration COVID form” in which they can indicate that they have been vaccinated with one of these vaccines, have a negative test for COVID-19 or have been cured of COVID-19, ” the PACE press service said in response to a request from RBC regarding the possibilities of the Russian delegation to attend events held by the Council of Europe.

In the declaration form, visitors to the Council of Europe are encouraged to follow the recommendations of the authorities of France and their own country.

According to the head of the Russian delegation to the assembly, Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Pyotr Tolstoy, the delegation received an order according to which its members could only move from the hotel to the building of the Parliamentary Assembly. This was explained by the fact that Russia is considered a country with a high level of coronavirus infections in France and is in the red zone.

The French authorities indicate in their recommendations that to visit public places where more than 50 people gather and move around the country, a special pass is required, which also records data on vaccination, a negative PCR test or the fact of a previous illness. France recognizes vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), so in this case, Russian parliamentarians could provide data on the test passed or recovery after a disease, according to the recommendations.

“The French put Russians in a discriminatory position compared to our colleagues from other countries, in particular, the authors of Russophobic resolutions-Ukrainians,Balts and others,” Tolstoy noted. State Duma Chairman Vyacheslav Volodin accused PACE of playing along with pharmaceutical companies. In his opinion, ” PACE should decide: either this is a place for discussions, where the law and standards are guided, or it is a lobbying organization acting in the interests of pharmaceutical companies and promoting those vaccines that are beneficial to them.”

In Russia, two organizations of Scientologists were recognized as undesirable

DAll Scientology organizations based in the United States are considered undesirable in Russia. Last month, the Prosecutor General’s Office declared undesirable religious associations from Ukraine and Latvia

 Two Scientology organizations have been declared undesirable in Russia

The building of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation

The Prosecutor General’s Office has recognized the World Institute of Scientology Enterprises International (WISE) and the Ron Hubbard Library from the United States as undesirable in Russia, according to the Telegram channel of the supervisory authority.

“The Ron Hubbard Library” (L. Ron Hubbard Library) also uses the name “Church of Spiritual Technology”(Church of Spiritual Technology, CST), the ministry said in a statement.

“The activities of these religious corporations pose a threat to the security of the Russian Federation,” the agency states, noting that the decision to declare the organizations undesirable was made after studying the materials received.

These organizations will be included in the list of foreign and international non-governmental organizations compiled by the Ministry of Justice, whose activities are recognized as undesirable on the territory of Russia.

WISE calls itself a non-profit international association on its website. It was founded in 1979 and is headquartered in Los Angeles. The members of the organization— entrepreneurs and business owners— work in 131 countries of the world, they use Hubbard’s administrative technology in their companies. The organization calls the goal of building an “ethical, reasonable and prosperous civilization”.

CST is a California-based non-profit religious corporation. According to the information provided on the Scientology website, the organization was founded in 1982 “to preserve and archive the sacred writings of Scientology” and make them accessible to everyone. CST also owns the copyrights to Hubbard’s works, issues licenses for their use and collects royalties from the lectures and books of the founder of the doctrine.

In Russia, the Scientology Church of Moscow was registered as a religious organization in 1994. In various regions of the country, Hubbard’s books and pamphlets were recognized as extremist by court decisions.

In November 2015, the Scientology Church of Moscow was liquidated by the decision of the Moscow City Court. At the same time, in August 2015, the Investigative Committee opened a criminal case after hidden video cameras and listening devices were found in the building of the Church of Scientology in Moscow.

The organization “Scientology Center” in St. Petersburg was liquidated by the city court in 2007. In the summer of 2016, the FSB suspected the Scientology Church of St. Petersburg of illegal entrepreneurship without registration. A criminal case was opened against Scientologists. The FSB then reported that the illegal business was “associated with the extraction of profit on a particularly large scale”.

In 2018, the FSB opened a criminal case against one of the leaders of the church in St. Petersburg on suspicion of legalizing funds obtained by criminal means.

The Church of Scientology was founded by Ron Hubbard in the USA in the middle of the XX century. In many states, the activities of Scientologists are prohibited. In Russia, individual Scientology centers were repeatedly closed, their literature was banned, and some of Hubbard’s lectures were recognized in Russia as extremist materials.

In mid-August, the Prosecutor General’s Office declared undesirable the non-governmental organization International Partnership for Human Rights, which cooperated in Russia with the information and analytical center “Sova”, included in the list of foreign agents.

At the end of the same month, the Prosecutor General’s Office recognized four foreign religious organizations as undesirable in Russia: the international Christian movement “New Generation” (Latvia), Evangēlisko kristie šu baznīca« Jaunā Paaudze» (Evangelical Christian Church “New Generation”, Latvia), the Spiritual Administration of the Evangelical Christians of Ukraine Christian Churches& laquo;New Generation & raquo; (spiritual Administration of Evangelical Christians of the Ukrainian Christian Church & laquo; New Generation», Ukraine) and Spiritual Navchalny Mortgage of the National Bible College «New Generation & raquo; (spiritual educational institution & laquo;International Bible College & laquo; New Generation», Ukraine).

The wrinkling virus was found in Turkish tomatoes after Erdogan’s words about the Crimea

Rthe Rosselkhoznadzor found viruses in vegetables from Turkey. This became known a few days after Erdogan announced at the UN about the”annexation of the Crimea”. Soon the Turkish president will come to Russia for talks

 A wrinkle virus was found in Turkish tomatoes after Erdogan's words about the Crimea

The Rosselkhoznadzor found brown moniliose rot (Moniliniafructicola) in fruits from Turkey, and a brown wrinkling virus in tomatoes, according to a statement on the agency’s website.

Representatives of the Rosselkhoznadzor discussed the supply of vegetables and fruits with employees of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry of Turkey at a videoconference on September 23. The Russian side asked to strengthen phytosanitary control over the supplied products and recalled that the brown wrinkle virus found in Turkish tomatoes is a quarantine disease for Russia.

The Rosselkhoznadzor reported that it still records an increased level of pesticides in vegetables and fruits from Turkey. According to the ministry, in 2021, 79 cases of “exceeding the hygienic standards for the content of residual amounts of pesticides and agrochemicals” of imported products were detected.

Representatives of the Rosselkhoznadzor also announced their intention to strengthen control over GMO products and study Turkish legislation related to the cultivation of genetically modified plants.

In response, the representatives of Turkey reported that they are “attentive to the fulfillment of Russian requirements when exporting” and will do everything to prevent the export of dangerous products to Russia.

Reports of infected Turkish tomatoes appeared a few days before the meeting of the leaders of Russia and Turkey. Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan are expected to hold talks in Sochi on September 29. The Turkish president said that the situation in Syria and bilateral relations would be the topic of the talks, and important decisions would be made following the meeting.

The press secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov confirmed the fact of the meeting and said that in addition to the above, the leaders will discuss other regional conflicts. The Daily Sabah edition, citing its own source, reported that the main topic of the negotiations should be violations of the truce agreement in Idlib, which was signed by Putin and Erdogan in March 2020.

Earlier, on September 22, Erdogan, speaking at the UN General Assembly in New York, said that Turkey stands for the preservation of the territorial integrity of Ukraine and will never recognize the annexation of the Crimea. Before that, on September 20, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said that it did not recognize the results of the State Duma elections held in Crimea, as Ankara considers the annexation of the peninsula to Russia illegal. The Foreign Ministry stressed that the elections on the territory of the peninsula, held on September 17 and 19, have no legal force for Turkey.

The Kremlin called Turkey’s position on the elections in Crimea unacceptable, the Russian Foreign Ministry promised to draw appropriate conclusions.

Crimea became part of Russia after a referendum in 2014. 96% of the local residents who took part in the vote were in favor of joining Russia. Ukraine and most Western countries did not recognize the results of the referendum and declared the annexation of Crimea. Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the issue of the peninsula’s ownership is closed.
