Vladimir Putin wins a landslide victory

” This was more than just a presidential election this was a very important test for us; a test for political maturity of our people and independence. We have demonstrated that nobody can impose anything on us we have shown that our people are capable of telling the difference between the desires for novelty and progress from political provocations that pressure with only one goal; to destroy Russia.” Putin said

Putin was jubilant and very emotional

 

Moscow (SaebPress) — Vladimir Putin secured a third term in the Kremlin on Sunday after recording a resounding victory at Russia’s presidential polls. “We won in an open and honest fight!” ,a jubilant Putin joined by outgoing President Dmitry Medvedev, said addressing 110,000 people, who gathered on Manezhnaya Square outside the Kremlin walls. He stressed that this victory signals a defeat for those who want to destroy Russia.We urge everyone to unite around the interests of Russia,” Putin was jubilant and very emotional.

 

 

Exit polls gave Putin almost 60 percent of the vote. His nearest rival, Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov, took 17.7 percent, state pollster VTsIOM said. Early official returns showed similar numbers.

 

The Russian Interior Ministry acknowledged reports of violations but said they had not been sufficient to impact the result of the vote.

Election officials said the vote at a north-west Moscow polling station could be annulled over reported violations. Results from a number of polling stations in the North Caucasus republic of Dagestan were also being looked into, election officials said. Observers representing Putin’s campaign also reported a number of violations at the elections, mostly of a “technical” nature.

 

The mood at Putin headquarters was triumphant. “This was the cleanest election in Russian history. Early results of 61 percent are a pleasant surprise. We were expecting 58 percent, there will be no second round.” Putin’s campaign Chief Stanislav Govorukhin said.

Iran’s ‘logical path’ to saving JCPOA

Press TV talkes to Dr Saeb Shaath about his take on roadmap that leads the US to return to its commitment and lift the sanctions imposed on Iran.

Tehran has never severed ties with the IAEA

Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says Tehran is proposing a logical path to the US for its full compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal. Zarif said the United States should first return to the full compliance and then Iran will reciprocate after rapid verification of Washington’s compliance. Zarif also stressed that all sanctions imposed by Former President Donald Trump must be removed. This comes as Iran and the remaining signatories to the nuclear deal end another round of talks aimed at reviving the agreement. More negotiations are set to be held next Wednesday.

Thousands of political prisoners in Bahrain are facing deaths

Most of the prisoners were imprisoned as part ‎of a crackdown on a 2011 uprising… they are ‎detained in prisons that are known to be ‎overcrowded and lacking proper sanitation…its ‎done to break the spirt of the activists through ‎dehumanising and humiliation

Saeb Shaath Said “Thousands of political activists, political ‎dissidents, opposition figures, women and even ‎children in Bahraini prisons are facing deaths ‎
cleric …Sheikh Isa Qassim …has warned of that ‎and demanded their immediate release ,,,,,, he ‎called on the Al khalifa regime to choose between ‎the deaths of the dissident inmates and their ‎release…‎

Most of the prisoners were imprisoned as part ‎of a crackdown on a 2011 uprising… they are ‎detained in prisons that are known to be ‎overcrowded and lacking proper sanitation…its ‎done to break the spirt of the activists through ‎dehumanising and humiliation …‎”

Shaath explained

“That is to force them to stop demanding Al ‎Khalifah regime to allow reforms for ‎establishing of a just and fair system that ‎reflects and represents the people interests .‎
On April 6 2020, 21 International ‎human rights organisations among ‎them were Amnesty international and ‎human rights first
‎ called on the Bahraini regime to release ‎all political prisoners ….as the release of ‎‎1,486 prisoners on 17 March 2020 only ‎included 394 prisoners sentenced on ‎political charges….‎
‎While the western governments applause ‎Bahrain’s so called great amnesty .‎”
‎ Saeb Shaath noted that “Most political opponents, activists, ‎human rights defenders, and journalists ‎remain incarcerated.‎
‎ Among them are influential members of ‎Al Wefaq party such as former ‎secretary-general Hassan Mushaima, ‎and Sheikh Ali Salman, ‎
as well as human rights activists ‎Abdulhadi Al Khawaja and Nabeel ‎Rajab”.‎
‎ Shaath added ” the hypocrisy of the west shines by keeping ‎closed eyes over atrocities committed by the ‎Bahraini regime against the prisoners … All ‎are well aware that Bahrain carries out ‎the execution of political prisoners. ‎
Bahraini authorities habitually diluting ‎human rights abuses by sentencing or ‎executing prisoners during holidays or ‎on days of religious celebrations to ‎prevent any reaction from international ‎institutions or media.‎”

Shaath concluded by saying ” Its well documented that the actions of ‎the Bahraini regime violate ‎international law and Bahrain’s ‎international human rights obligations, ‎
including the UN Convention Against ‎Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or ‎Degrading Treatment or Punishment, ‎
the International Covenant on Civil and ‎Political Rights, the International ‎Covenant on Economic, Social, and ‎Cultural Rights along with the Arab ‎Charter of Human Rights “..‎

Who is behind the assassination of Iranian Scientists?

“NYT summarizes the “chilling message” that “American officials” want to send to Iranian top nuclear scientists with today’s assassination: “If we can get him, we can get you, too.” Indistinguishable from Mafia talk.”

US officials say Zionist entity “Israel” was behind the assassination: New York Times “One American official — along with two other intelligence officials — said that “Israel” was behind the attack on the scientist,” The New York Times reported on Friday.

Fakhrizadeh’s name was mentioned multiple times in a presentation in 2018 by Zionist entity “Israeli” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, during which he repeated baseless claims about the Iranian nuclear program. Netanyahu described the scientist as the director of Iran’s nuclear program and threatened, “Remember that name, Fakhrizadeh.”

The Tel Aviv regime has made several attempts over the past years to throw a wrench in Tehran’s peaceful nuclear work. The regime has been behind the assassination of several Iranian nuclear scientists. It has also conduced cyberattacks on Iranian nuclear sites.

Dmitry Polyanskiy @Dpol_un “That’s a telling analysis from @nytimes reflecting readiness of US establishment to give green light to political extra territorial assasinations. Not a thing to boast for a democratic country! #Iran #Fakhrizadeh”.

“NYT summarizes the “chilling message” that “American officials” want to send to Iranian top nuclear scientists with today’s assassination: “If we can get him, we can get you, too.” Indistinguishable from Mafia talk.” @aaronjmate .

The senior Iranian defense official was assassinated near the capital Tehran in a terrorist attack. In a statement, the Defense ministry said the vehicle of the head of the Organization of Defensive Innovation and Research, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was targeted by terrorists.

The Iranian FM Mohammad Javad Zarif said the act of cowardice shows the desperate warmongering of its perpetrators adding that there are serious indications of an Israeli role in the assassination. Zarif also urged the international community, especially the EU, to end QUOTE “their shameful double standards and condemn the Iranian defense official’s assassination.

Between 2010 and 2012, four other Iranian nuclear scientists were assassinated. Tehran and western intelligence agencies have long put the blame on Zionist entity “Israel”, an accusation that was never rejected by officials of the Israeli regime.
