Russian national Andrei Yeremin, who claims that he was removed from a flight in the United States for the "occupation" of Crimea, said he deleted his post about the incident from a social network after receiving threats.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, it was reported that Russian Embassy in the United States had been looking into an incident involving a man named Andrei Yeremin claiming being taken off a plane at the request of another passenger for being a citizen of Russia and an "occupant of Crimea." Yeremin said that he intended to defend his rights in court.
At the same time, Delta stated that the Russian was removed from the flight for violating security rules.
"I began to receive calls and messages from some strange people who told me various unpleasant things. So I decided to remove the post, not that I'm afraid of anything, but I have two children, it's unpleasant for me," Yeremin said.

He described the incident in the details.
"I was really one of the late passengers on this flight, but I did not break in. The doors were open, I calmly went into the plane and sat down in my place… A very drunk person was sitting one seat away from me. He did not like the fact that I had a Russian passport in my hands… he said 'you Russians are occupants of Crimea' to which I replied: 'shut up, ok?", Yeremin said.
He said that the passenger called a flight attendant, who asked Yeremin to leave for a "documents check."
"I calmly got out of the plane. A policeman came up to me and said: 'It's not comfortable for a person to fly with you, because 'you Russians have occupied Crimea'… He asked if I did not mind if my flight would be delayed by 45 minutes. I said: 'no, of course, it is not important for me," Yeremin said.
He explained that he agreed to postpone the flight because he did not like to argue with law enforcement agencies and airlines.
Yeremin stressed that he did not violate any rules while boarding, because otherwise, given the strictness of the US aviation security standards, he would simply not be allowed to fly. He added that he intends to file a complaint with the airline demanding compensation and apologies.
Yeremin resides permanently in the United States but has Russian citizenship.
Crimea rejoined Russia in 2014 after almost 96 percent of its voters supported the move through a referendum held in March 2014. Kiev, as well as Brussels and Washington, did not recognize the referendum results. Russian authorities have repeatedly said that the Crimean residents decided to rejoin Russia in a democratic procedure and that the referendum was conducted in compliance with the international law.

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s IT specialist, accused of hacking congressional computers




Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s IT 


Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s IT specialist, accused of hacking congressional computers, busted trying to flee US

Imran Awan, has been arrested while attempting to flee the United States.

Imran Awan and three relatives involved in the IT business, with suspiciously “unbreakable” ties to the DNC, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and many Democrats in Congress, were under investigation by Capitol Police for accessing congressional computers without permission…i.e. hacking the DNC. Sound familiar.
Five Capitol Hill technology aides told The Daily Caller that members of Congress have displayed an inexplicable and intense loyalty towards the suspects who police say victimized them.
This has left many IT companies working on Capitol Hill left to wonder if the Awan IT team are blackmailing representatives based on the contents of their emails and files, to which they had full access.
Fast forward to present day, and The Daily Caller is now reporting that Wasserman-Schultz’s IT golden boy, Imran Awan, has been arrested while attempting to flee the United States, after being charged with bank fraud.
As Zerohedge reports, just a day after reports emerged that the FBI had seized a number of “smashed hard drives” and other computer equipment from the residence Imran Awan, the IT aide of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, we learn that Awan has been captured at the Dulles airport while attempted to flee the country. According to Fox News, Awan has been charged with bank fraud.

BREAKING: Russia responds to new US sanctions, vows to retaliate

VLADIMIR RODZIANKO24 mins ago 
Russia has been targeted for alleged interference in the 2016 US presidential election, an allegation that Russia denies and which has not been backed by any convincing public evidence.

 
A new bill introduced by US legislators seeks to impose new economic sanctions against Russia, including North Korea and Iran. The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs expects the bill to become law, pending approval from US President Donald Trump.
The US House of Representatives approved a sanctions bill by a vote of 419-3 on Tuesday a new version of a bill that would impose sweeping sanctions on Russia, Iran and North Korea, and limit President Donald Trump’s ability to lift the restrictions on Moscow. The measures target Russia’s defense, intelligence, mining, shipping and railway industries, and restrict dealings with Russian banks and energy companies.
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Sergey Ryabkov, warned if the new anti-Russian sanctions bill is to be approved, retaliatory measures will be imposed by Moscow.
Ryabkov told the media Wednesday, “What is happening defies common sense. The authors and sponsors of this bill are taking a very serious step towards destroying any potential for normalizing relations with Russia.” He added, “We told them [US] dozens of times that such actions would not be left without a response. I believe the signal went through even though present-day Washington tends to listen to and hear from no one but itself.”
Kremlin Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov told journalists:
“It can be said now that the news is very sad from the perspective of Russian-American relations and the perspectives of their development,” “This is no less disheartening from the point of view of international law and international trade relations.”
“The attitude to this [law] will be formed on the basis of a thorough analysis, and the decision [on how to respond] will certainly be taken by the head of state, President [Vladimir] Putin.”
“The Russian president makes foreign policy decisions, and we will inform you if and when they are adopted. All other statements are quite understandable. We are talking about extremely unfriendly manifestations, so the reaction is obvious.”
The new round of anti-Russian sanctions by Washington is “equally dreadful from the point of view of international law and international trade relations,” Peskov added.
France and Germany have so far spoken out against the bill that the US House passed overwhelmingly on Tuesday as one that adversely affects European industries while advancing US commercial interests.
“This is concerning not only for the German industry. Sanctions against Russia should not become a tool of industrial policy in the US interests,” German Foreign Minister spokesman Martin Schaefer said at a press briefing.
The US bill also sparked concern in Europe, with European governments and business leaders fearing the sanctions would hurt crucial joint energy projects with Russia and may be motivated by Washington’s desire to take over the European natural gas market from Russia in favor of American liquefied natural gas (LNG).
The Duran’s Alexander Mercouris recently analyzed the potential impact of the new sanctions against Russia:
“The new sanctions package will not have the big impact on the Russian economy that some are expecting. The Russian economy has sailed through the previous far more severe sectoral sanctions which were imposed on Russia in July 2014, and the collapse in oil prices which took place in the second half of that year. The result was only a short and shallow recession, out of which Russia is now rapidly emerging. Indeed there are some who calculate that growth this year will be enough by itself to wipe out all the output loss during the recession, though I do not share this view.

The new sanctions in economic terms do not add significantly to the sanctions which were imposed in 2014. They appear intended to target the personal assets of super-wealthy Russians – a deeply unpopular class still wrongly referred to as “oligarchs”, though the days of their power in Russia are long gone – and to impede Western and specifically US participation and investment in certain of Russia’s industries, first and foremost those in the extractive sector.”

Ron Paul, US businesses and European states all oppose new sanctions on Russia

Ron Paul, US businesses and European states all oppose new sanctions on Russia

If Donald Trump vetoes the sanctions he will be damned by the mainstream media and his political opponents, but if he does not, he will be damned by everyone else, including America's European allies and major American businesses.
The list of countries, businesses and individuals opposed to a new wave of sanctions against Russia continues to grow. Congress is set to present Donald Trump with a new bill for sanctions which would hit Russia, Iran and North Korea as well as businesses from elsewhere who conduct commercial activities with entities in the aforementioned states. Trump now faces the politically precarious decision of whether to veto the legislation.
The Duran’s Alexander Mercouris has previous written on why the sanctions may be unconstitutional in the first place as under US law it is the prerogative of the Executive to make or end sanctions rather than a Congressional power.
The European Union has also come out in opposition of the sanctions which would impede the ability of major European companies from continuing existing business deals with Russian corporations.
The Financial Times reports,
“Brussels is preparing to retaliate against the US if Washington pushes ahead with far-reaching new sanctions on Russia that hit European companies.
Jean-Claude Juncker, the European Commission president, has called for an urgent review of how Brussels should respond if Europe’s energy companies or other businesses are targeted by sanctions under discussion in the US Congress. According to a note prepared for a commission meeting on Wednesday, and seen by the Financial Times, Brussels ‘should stand ready to act within days’ if the US measures were ‘adopted without EU concerns being taken into account”.
This is the strongest statement to-date affirming that Europe not only opposes the new sanctions but will take active measures to retaliate against them. Not only would the sanctions stifle economic activity among major EU companies as well as small and medium sized businesses, but it could see Europe being forced to buy expensive American liquefied natural gas instead of comparatively inexpensive gas from Russia’s pipelines to Europe.

Calls from Europe to forego new sanctions were echoed from American companies including BP, ExxonMobil, General Electric, Boeing and Citigroup, MasterCard, Visa, Ford, Dow Chemical, Procter & Gamble, International Paper, Caterpillar, and Cummins which have all voiced their strong opposition to the sanctions on the grounds that it could effect their business operations.
Former Congressman and Presidential Candidate Dr. Ron Paul, an advocate of economic and individual liberty, wrote the following about his opposition to the sanctions,
“This week’s expected House vote to add more sanctions on Russia, Iran, and North Korea is a prime example of how little thought goes into US foreign policy. Sanctions have become kind of an automatic action the US government takes when it simply doesn’t know what else to do.
No matter what the problem, no matter where on earth it occurs, the answer from Washington is always sanctions. Sanctions are supposed to force governments to change policies and do what Washington tells them or face the wrath of their people. So the goal of sanctions is to make life as miserable as possible for civilians so they will try to overthrow their governments. Foreign leaders and the elites do not suffer under sanctions. This policy would be immoral even if it did work, but it does not.
Why is Congress so eager for more sanctions on Russia? The neocons and the media have designated Russia as the official enemy and the military industrial complex and other special interests want to continue getting rich terrifying Americans into believing the propaganda.
Why, just weeks after the White House affirmed that Iran is abiding by its obligations under the nuclear treaty, does Congress pass additional sanctions anyway? Washington blames Iran for “destabilizing” Syria and Iraq by helping them fight ISIS and al-Qaeda. Does this make any sense at all?
When is the last time Iran committed a terrorist act on our soil? It hasn’t. Yet we learned from the declassified 28 pages of the Congressional 9/11 report that Saudi Arabia was deeply involved in the 2001 attacks against Washington and New York. Who has funded al-Qaeda and ISIS in Syria for years? Saudi Arabia. Yet no one is talking about sanctions against that country. This is because sanctions are not about our security. They are about politics and special interests.
Why is Congress poised to add yet more sanctions on North Korea? Do they want the North Korean people to suffer more than they are already suffering? North Korea’s GDP is half that of Vermont – the US state with the lowest GDP! Does anyone believe they are about to invade us? There is much talk about North Korea’s ballistic missile program, but little talk about 30,000 US troops and weapons on North Korea’s border. For Washington, it’s never a threat if we do it to the other guy.
Here’s an alternative to doing the same thing over and over: Let’s take US troops out of North Korea after 70 years. The new South Korean president has proposed military talks with North Korea to try and reduce tensions. We should get out of the way and let them solve their own problems. If Iran and Russia want to fight ISIS and al-Qaeda at the invitation of their ally, Syria, why stand in the way? We can’t run the world. We are out of money.
President Trump was elected to pursue a new kind of foreign policy. If he means what he said on the campaign trail, he will veto this foolish sanctions bill and begin dismantling neocon control of his Administration”.
Donald Trump could veto the measures and do so on the grounds of Constitutionality rather than on the grounds of disagreeing with the content of the legislation. By attacking the sanctions on this technical ground he could ostensibly dodge some of the predictable criticism from the Russophobic western mainstream media, the neo-con wing of the Republican party and virtually all of the Democratic party, who will not hesitate to pounce whenever Donald Trump is seen as doing something which appears to favour Russia.
The fact that America’s biggest corporations and the EU, a key US ally is opposed to the sanctions will almost certainly not make the headlines of the media outlets Donald Trump refers to as the “fake news media”.
There is one other consideration. Donald Trump continues to speak about seeking cooperation with Russia, but he also said that American energy exports would start to compete with Russia in the open marketplace.
In his first interview after meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit, Trump stated,
“We’re going to be an exporter of fuel this year. We’re going to be exporting.
What was the first thing I signed when I got in? The Keystone pipeline and and the Keystone pipeline goes from Canada all the way through our country right into the Gulf and the ships are there to take it all over and compete with Russia”.
By using sanctions to force European states to purchase expensive American liquefied natural gas, could this be Trump’s way of competing with Russia in respect of energy exports? If it is, it is ultimately a flawed plan. Not only does it create an un-level playing field by using the might of a government to influence the global marketplace, but furthermore, it is doubtful that in the winter months, America can deliver liquefied natural gas to Europe fast enough to keep up with high levels of usage. Russia which delivers gas to Europe via pipelines has no such difficulty.
With Trump seemingly about to fire Attorney Jeff Sessions and with rumours of Rex Tillerson planning to quit, Trump does not need to alienate Europe and major US companies at a time when his White House team seems to be on the verge of a big shakeup.
