Published by:

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has hailed Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo’s impressive contribution to a 3-0 win over Apoll Nicosia in the first round of the Champions League.

Ronaldo managed to score the first and second goals of Real Madrid, before Ramos scored the third goal in a distinctive way, from a double double-bottomed shot to give the Real the first 3 points in the defense of the European title crowned last season at the expense of Juventus.

“Cristiano Ronaldo was brilliant today and he was doing better than everyone,” Ramos said after the match. “When he does well, the whole team has a great performance. It’s very important for us.”

“I always like to take part in the attack to surprise opponents because they know I have to be in the back,” said Ramos. “A goal from a scissor shot is a very cool thing.”

Published by:

Neutral Sweden, the biggest war exercise in 20 years with NATO support, with 19,000 troops, after years of spending cuts that left the country, began to worry about Russia’s growing military strength.

On the eve of the biggest Russian exercise since 2013, NATO says it will have more soldiers than Moscow announced, with 13,000 troops, Sweden is conducting maneuvers simulating an attack from the east on the Baltic island of Gotland near the Swedish mainland.

“The security situation has taken a turn for the worse,” Swedish armed forces chief Michael Biden said during the three-week exercise. Sweden, such as the Baltic states, Poland and many Western countries, has been deeply concerned by Russia’s annexation of the Ukrainian Crimea in the Black Sea in 2014 and its support for separatists in eastern Ukraine.

“Russia is the country that is affecting security in Europe now because of its actions, the annexation of the Crimea and the continuing battles in eastern Ukraine,” Biden said. “So obviously we are closely watching what Russia is doing.” About 1,500 troops from the United States, France, Norway and other NATO countries are participating in the so-called “Twilight” exercise. Non-NATO member Sweden has decided to strengthen its armed forces after spending has fallen to about 1 percent after it accounted for more than two percent of economic output in the early 1990s and began to reintroduce the compulsory recruitment system. NATO generals said the exercises were not a response to Russian maneuvers, which begin on Thursday

Published by:

Paul Ryan, chairman of the US House of Representatives, confirmed that the deportation of young immigrants who entered the United States illegally would not be in the interest of the country.

The program, known as Dhaka, has granted about 800,000 illegal immigrants protection from deportation and the opportunity to work legally in the United States, the radio said.

“We need time, and we do not want to cancel the program overnight, which would create a state of chaos,” Ryan said. “Giving Congress more time will ultimately enable it to reach the right form of consensus. And the settlement necessary to resolve illegal immigrants in the United States. “

Brazilian judiciary questions former president Lula for the second time

Published by:

Brazil’s anti-corruption judge Sergio Moro on Wednesday questioned former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who was weakened by serious confessions made by one of his closest associates.

The judge sentenced Lula da Silva, 71, in July to about 10 years in a separate case. In total, he targets six issues of the former president and could eliminate his ambitions to return to power.

Former Finance Minister Antonio Baluchi revealed last week secrets that could be a severe blow to him. Baluchi was arrested in September 2016 and sentenced to 12 years in prison.

Baluchi also listened to Judge Moro and stressed that Lula had established a “close alliance” between his Labor Party and the Odebrecht group of public works, which are at the heart of the corruption scandal, shaking Brazil.

The judge could use these new elements to reinforce the accusations against the former president (2003-2010) when he heard him on Wednesday.

Prosecutors say Adwebrecht apparently offered land to the Lula Institute in Sao Paulo and placed his family in another town in the neighboring city of Sao Bernardo do Campo for security facilities for the group to get contracts from the state oil company Petrobras. Baluchi said “the facts quoted were true, And this could fall the whole line of defense of the former president.

But Lula da Silva said on his Facebook page that “the story told by Antonio Baluchi contradicts all other testimonies and can only be understood in the context of the fact that he is a man imprisoned and convicted in other cases of Judge Sergio Moro.”

On May 10, in his first encounter with Judge Moro in Curitiba, southern Brazil, the president said he was the victim of a “hypocrisy” campaign and denied all charges.

At the end of July, the former mining worker was sentenced to nine years and a half in prison.

The judge convicted him of accepting a three-storey apartment in the Krishwa resort of the Odebrecht group. Pending the trial of the appeal, Lula remains free but may be barred from running for election in October 2018 if convicted on appeal and may be jailed.

Lula has yet to present his voting intentions in opinion polls but is rejected by much of Brazil’s public opinion.

His tour of poor areas in the northeast in recent weeks has not attracted crowds. The Northeast is one of the regions that has benefited most from the ambitious social policy of Ula da Silva, who during his 2003-2010 mandates has helped drive tens of millions of Brazilians out of misery. Lula’s tour lasted three weeks and included 28 cities.

The Labor Party announced a pro-left demonstration in Curitiba, but most observers expect a smaller mobilization than the one recorded when questioned for the first time when about 7,000 activists took part.

The party, still traumatized by the sudden dismissal of President Dilma Rousseff (2011-2016), may have to consider an alternative plan for the 2018 election, although any party member would dare to speak out in public.

When he left office in 2010, it was virtually impossible to charge Lula da Silva, whose popularity was 80 percent. Brazil was at the height of its economic boom

Erdogan’s adviser expects improved relations with Germany and Europe

Published by:

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said in an interview with Reuters that relations with Germany would improve in parallel with a general improvement in relations with the European Union early next year, boosting the prospects for growing Turkish export and tourism.

“I expect a greater calm with Germany after the (German) election on Sept. 24. I expect the tension to ease,” Ermit said in the interview on Tuesday.

Turkish-German relations have been under pressure since the campaign launched by Erdogan following the failed coup attempt last year.

Germany has criticized the mass arrests and has refused to hand over Turkey to people who have sought refuge in Ankara and Ankara accuses them of involvement in the failed coup attempt. Berlin has also demanded the release of about 12 German citizens arrested in the past few months.

“Turkey’s relations with the EU will be reformed rapidly as of the first quarter of 2018. I think Turkey’s exports to the EU will increase,” Ermit said.

He noted that the improvement in relations with Europe will result in a “very good year” for tourism in 2018.

The number of European tourists visiting Turkey has declined due to security concerns in the past few years.

Artem said the economy would grow between 5.5 and 6 percent this year and between five and seven percent next year.
