The result is clear. Two third of the votes were for Emmanuel Macron, president of the social-democratic party “En marche” and one third for Marine Le Pen, president of the National Front. Mrs Le Pen has lost some points after the debate at the French television, four days before the vote. Macron made then a better performance. Macron celebrated his victory in the yard of the castle « Le Louvre », before the masonic pyamid in glass and he listened to the National Anthem with his hand on his heart as American presidents do, but also as Free Masons do in their private meetings in sign of fraternity. However, the general public did not notice the meaning of these symbols.

1. Theresa May said today (Thur) that Russia was on the “wrong side of the argument” when it comes to Syria, what is your response to that?

Answer: With all my respect for Prime Minister Theresa May I’ve got to say that the opposite is true. Even former British Ambassador in Damascus Peter Ford (on the BBC the other day) said that there is no moderate opposition alternative to the present government is Syria. That’s why there is urgent need for lasting ceasefire and political process among the Syrians, so that they can decide for themselves. It seems that our Western partners don’t like this approach and want to decide for the Syrians who will take part in the political process and who shall not. I think the reason is they know well what the choice of the Syrians is going to be after the 6 years of civil war.

Transnational threats, such as terrorism, illegal trafficking in narcotic drugs and human beings, organized crime, including cyber-crime, remain among the most significant threats to peace, security and stability worldwide and to the participating States of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). Such criminal activities undermine the social and economic development of nations, fundamental freedoms of people in OSCE region, their safety, stability and enjoyment of human rights. Andrey G. Karlov, Diplomat, Ambassador, an outstanding personality well respected by authorities of many states, including his own, by diplomatic community in Ankara and far beyond was deprived from his right to life, liberty and security that is essential and fundamental to every human being. Terrorist decided that he may just take away the life of the Ambassador when the Diplomat was opening an exhibition devoted to develop friendly and mutually beneficial relations between nations. Thus the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights was blatantly violated. Fundamental principle of the inviolability of diplomatic staff according to the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations were blatantly violated as well.
1. The outgoing year 2016 was a difficult one for world politics and international relations. The international situation remained tense. Acute contradictions between states and associations of states with regard to fundamental issues of the world order remained unchanged. Blood was shed in entire regions, where statehood and the legitimate basis of the government have been undermined by external interventions or foreign support to local extremist and radical forces. The terrorist threat in the belt of instability ranging from North Africa to South Asia’s borders has taken on a systemic dimension. The entire world has to pay a high price for the attempts of a limited number of countries to retain their global "leadership" at all costs.
