And you support that kind of approach? Absolutely, I'm fully into the resistance. And what would happen if there was no resistance? I think that we would see a growing authoritarianism. And I think we've seen that played out across other places, particularly in Eastern Europe,.

Enormous surveillance drone-zeppelins are levitating above the city. It could all be seen as thoroughly grotesque, even laughable, but no one is amused. It is all very serious, damn serious here. Afghanistan has been gradually overtaken by something absolutely foreign: by the Western-style security apparatus. Tens of thousands of highly paid North American and Europeanexperts’ have been getting extremely busy, fulfilling their secret wet dream: fencing everything in sight, monitoring each and every movement in the capital city, building taller and taller barriers, while installing the latest hi-tech cameras at almost every intersection, and above each gate. Not far from the Embassy of the United States of America (or more precisely, not far from the Great Chinese Wall-size fence encompassing it), I noticed a familiar complex of buildings, reminding me of those that used to be constructed in all corners of Eastern Europe and Cuba.

After Ukraine became independent in 1991, the ammunition depot was designated as the country’s 65th military unit. It remained one of the biggest ammunition depots in Ukraine and Eastern Europe – according to various estimates, the Balakliya depot stored from 2030 percent of the nation’s ammunition stockpile, including old and obsolete Soviet-era rounds. However, there were many reports that the depot was unsafe long before the incident on March 23. Pictures published in social media by base personnel show massive stores of rusty outdated heavy munitions being stored in the open air or in simple tents. The huge depot was guarded by only some 90 lightly armed servicemen. At a press conference in Kyiv on March 23, SBU Security Service Chief Vasyl Hritsak confirmed that the 65th arsenal in Balakliya had been repeatedly flagged for problems with safety.

There are ample opportunities for corporate travellers to fly direct or via European and Far East transit hubs, so one need not worry about their business travel plans," said Rakshit Desai, managing director, FCM Travel Solutions. Sharat Dhall, COO (B2C) Yatra.com said the ban by the US and UK authorities prohibiting in-cabin electronic devices including laptops, tablets, cameras, DVD players etc. on passenger flights from eight countries including some key middle eastern airports, will complicate life for both business and leisure travelers. "While business travelers are accustomed to working while travelling, leisure passengers often use their laptops or tablets for entertainment on these long flights. From an India point of view, this announcement should be a gain for carriers like Jet Airways and Air India which typically fly via Europe, as travelers will prefer airlines which allow them to use these gadgets and be connected during their travel," he added.

He said Manafort played a very limited role for a very limited amount of time in the campaign, even though as Trump's presidential campaign chairman he led it during the crucial run-up to the Republican National Convention. Manafort and his associates remain in Trump's orbit. Manafort told a colleague this year that he continues to speak with Trump by telephone. Manafort's former business partner in eastern Europe, Rick Gates, has been seen inside the White House on a number of occasions. Gates has since helped plan Trump's inauguration and now runs a nonprofit organization, America First Policies, to back the White House agenda. Gates, whose name does not appear in the documents, told the AP that he joined Manafort's firm in 2006 and was aware Manafort had a relationship with Deripaska, but he was not aware of the work described in the memos.
