U.S. Confirms Delivery Of Javelin Antitank Missiles To Ukraine

KYIV -- The United States has confirmed to RFE/RL its delivery of American-made, Javelin antitank missile systems to Ukraine in a move that is welcome in Kyiv but will almost certainly enrage Moscow amid a four-year conflict that pits Russia-backed separatists against Ukrainian national troops.
"They have already been delivered," a U.S. State Department official confirmed on April 30 in response to an RFE/RL query on the handover of Javelins.
A shipment of lethal aid would appear to deepen U.S. involvement in the simmering conflict and mark at least a symbolic victory for Ukraine in its effort to maintain Western backing in the ongoing conflict.

Національний банк удосконалив порядок ліцензування валютних операцій для банків, населення та бізнесу.

По-перше, Національний банк спростив порядок видачі електронних ліцензій на здійснення фізичними особами валютних операцій.

Так, до переліку документів необхідних для отримання таких ліцензій додається можливість подання на підтвердження джерел походження коштів документів, що стосуються результатів його підприємницької діяльності або продажу рухомого та/або нерухомого майна (податкової декларації про майновий стан і доходи, декларації платника єдиного податку фізичної особи-підприємця, договору про продаж рухомого та/або нерухомого майна).

Предвыборный ход или цивилизационный выбор?

Евгений Киселёв
Пока в Украине больше всего разговоров об успехах и неудачах в борьбе с коррупцией, о головоломных раскладах политических сил, постоянно меняющихся по мере того, как понемногу приближаются президентские выборы 2019 года; пока в России главными темами обсуждения остаются неуклюжие и бесплодные попытки Роскомнадзора заблокировать Telegram и грядущее в мае после инаугурации Путина формирование нового правительства РФ и новой президентской администрации, пока там выдвигаются всевозможные гипотезы о предстоящих отставках, назначениях и перестановках, неожиданно быстрыми темпами пошел важнейший процесс, затрагивающий обе страны – и Украину, и Россию.

North Korea

North Korea, officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (abbreviated as DPRK, DPR Korea or Korea DPR), is a country in East Asia constituting the northern part of the Korean Peninsula. Officially, its territory consists of the whole Korean Peninsula and its adjacent islands. Pyongyang is the nation's capital and largest city. To the north and northwest, the country is bordered by China and by Russia along the Amnok (known as the Yalu in China) and Tumenrivers; it is bordered to the south by South Korea, with the heavily fortified Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) separating the two. Nevertheless, North Korea, like its southern counterpart, claims to be the legitimate government of the entire peninsula. Both North Korea and South Korea became members of the United Nations in 1991.

Occupation of Donbas: What has PACE actually recognized

After the adoption by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe of a resolution of April 24, there was some confusion with terms. In Ukraine, for the most part, the media claimed that the PACE had officially recognized the occupation of Donbas by Russia. However, in the document, certain areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions are referred to as "territories under effective control of the Russian authorities." However, this is not the same concept. The notion of "territories under effective control" implies that these particular territories are under the protection of or under control of another state or organization. Occupation is a quite different term. "Under control" means that a certain agreement between the parties can be reached or that a voluntary transfer of the territory under the control of a third State or the United Nations may occur, and that the management over the territory in question will not be carried out by the State to which the territory belongs. For example, at one time this was the case with Kosovo.

Whitehouse: What You Need To Know About The Loopholes That Prevent The Removal Of Many Dangerous Criminal Aliens

WHAT: Loopholes in our immigration system created by judicial rulings have made it nearly impossible to remove many criminal aliens.
In drafting the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), Congress included that criminal aliens convicted of any number of serious offenses referred to as aggravated felonies should be subject to immigration consequences. Federal courts, however, have created loopholes that prevent some serious criminal convictions from qualifying as aggravated felonies under the INA. As a result, the government is often unable to use the only grounds available to remove many criminal aliens.
