The Turkish stream is of great importance for Ankara, and demonstrates Moscow's faith in its partner, Former Turkish Deputy First Minister of Foreign Affairs Faruk Logoglu told Sputnik Turkey. 

Putin to Discuss Turkish Stream Pipeline Project Development With Erdogan On Monday Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan signed an agreement on the construction of the Turkish Stream gas supply project. President Putin arrived in Istanbul on Monday to attend the three-day World Energy Congress, as well as to hold talks with his Turkish and Venezuelan counterparts. "The agreement to be signed in the presence of the two presidents envisages the construction of two sections of the pipeline, across the Black Sea bed. The capacity of each pipeline will be 15.75 billion cubic meters of gas," head of Gazprom Aleksey Miller had said. Russia's Gazprom and Turkey's Botas 1 signed a memorandum of understanding for the construction of Turkish Stream in December 2014. The new gas pipeline will have a capacity of 63 billion cubic meters, 14 billion cubic meters of which is slated for Turkish consumers. The rest will be transported to a delivery point on the Greek border for European customers. Former Turkish Deputy First Minister of Foreign Affairs Faruk Logoglu told Sputnik Turkiye that the Turkish Stream project is very important for Turkey, enabling it to rival Ukraine as a major transit country for Russian gas. "Firstly, it is important because of Turkey's increasing energy needs. Secondly, thanks to this project Turkey can play the role of 'regional energy hub' in the international arena, through which Russian gas will enter the international market," 

 Europeans to Benefit From Turkish Stream Pipeline "In addition to the economic and geostrategic benefits this project is important for Turkey from an image point of view. The implementation of the Turkish Stream will allow Turkish to demonstrate itself a reliable energy partner and win trust on the regional and international arena." "At the same time, this project is an indication of the faith that Russia has in Turkey. After a period of crisis in bilateral relations this is of particular importance. Right now, Russian-Turkish relations are on the up. Turkey is strengthening its position in relation to the EU thanks to the expansion of cooperation with Russia. Therefore, this project is certainly extremely important and promising for Turkey," Logoglu said. Suleyman Sensoy, President of the Turkish-Asian Center for Strategic Studies, told Sputnik that the pipeline's mutual benefit for Turkey and Russia will ensure that construction goes smoothly. "Both parties are very interested in it. The Turkish authorities recently approved some of the technical documentation for the project and given appropriate permissions. I think the implementation of 'Turkish Stream' will be successful," Sensoy said. ... 55 Related: Ankara Optimistic About Turkish Stream Pipeline Project Implementation - Erdogan Ankara Remains Committed to Turkish Stream Project Implementation Italian Pipelayer Saipem Shows Interest in Turkish Stream, Nord Stream 2 Tags: Turkish Stream gas pipeline, gas transit, gas, EU, Turkey, Russia Community standards

Geert Mak Pleit Nu Voor Vriendschap met Rusland

Ik kwam zojuist mijn oude vriend, de bestseller-auteur en mainstream-opiniemaker Geert Mak in de regen op straat tegen. Na elkaar te hebben begroet, vertelde Geert mij dat hij van oordeel is dat Europa zo snel mogelijk met Rusland om de tafel moet gaan zitten, om de opgelopen spanningen te deëscaleren. De VS heeft heel andere belangen dan 'wij,' aldus Mak, die benadrukte dat de macht van 'onze' Atlantische bondgenoot ingrijpend aan het afnemen is. Kortom, ik hoorde wat ikzelf al enige jaren op mijn weblog schrijf. Opvallend hoe een Nederlandse opiniemaker binnen zo'n betrekkelijk korte tijd zo wezenlijk van oordeel kan veranderen.  Immers, Mak’s gevaarlijke anti-Rusland hetze was een treffend voorbeeld van zijn opportunisme. Mei 2014 beweerde op de Hilversumse televisie de zogeheten ‘chroniqueur van Amsterdam, Nederland, Europa en de VS,’ dat er sprake was van een 'Russische gevaar,’ aangezien ‘meneer Poetin’ aan ‘landjepik’ deed en dat de Russische president d…

Native American Rape Survivors

A sign marks the entrance to White Earth Indian Reservation in Mahnomen County, Minn. (J. Stephen Conn / CC 2.0) WHITE EARTH RESERVATION, Minn.—Candice (not her real name) awoke with a start. Someone was pulling down her sweatpants. It was a male friend. “Stop!” she shouted. He kept groping her. She kicked him and he fell off the bed. She dashed out of the bedroom, tripping and tumbling down the stairs. Gripped with fear, she heard his footsteps behind her in the dark and forced herself to stand upright as she staggered out to the porch. Candice was still intoxicated. She got into her car and drove into a ditch. A white police officer pulled up. She struggled to hold back tears as she told him about the attempted rape. All the officer saw was a drunk and disorderly Native American woman. He dismissed Candice’s report of sexual assault as a lie she had made up to avoid getting a DUI. He did not take her to the hospital for a forensic exam. The sexual assault was not recorded in his pol…
