Montenegro: Protesters cry No to Nato as alliance leader visits

Friday 16th October 2015

NATO secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg was met with ­protests yesterday during his two-day visit to oversee Montenegro’s bid to join the imperialist alliance.

“We recognise the progress that this nation has made in pursuing reform, in contributing to international security, in promoting co-operation within the western Balkans,” Mr Stoltenberg told Montenegrin MPs.

“In close co-operation with Nato, Montenegro has reformed its armed forces and its intelligence services.”

But protesters rallied in the capital Podgorica with banners reading “No to Nato.” The same slogan has been sprayed on dozens of buildings throughout the city.

The government’s campaign to win support for the bid has come up against memories of Nato’s 1999 bombing of the then republic of Serbia and Montenegro in support of Kosovar separatists.

The US supports Nato membership for Montenegro but Russia opposes it.

Ukrainian government threatens nuclear weapons proliferation

This video from the USA is called Noam Chomsky (2014) “How To Solve Nuclear Proliferation?”

As if the continuing Chernobyl nuclear plant disaster, and the non-nuclear weapons are not already killing far too many people in Ukraine

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Tuesday 16th September 2014

Ukrainian Defence Minister Valeriy Heletey warned on Sunday night that his country could restart its own nuclear programme.

The minister said that the programme would be revived if Kiev does not receive satisfactory military support against what he alleged was a nuclear threat from Russia.

“If we fail to defend Ukraine today, if the world does not help us, we will have to get back to the creation of such weapons which will defend us from Russia,” he threatened.

Mr Heletey stressed that his country sought military support from Nato, the United States and Britain in particular.

And he claimed that his country was already receiving arms from Nato.

Those claims were repeated by another senior official but were later denied by four of the five Nato countries he mentioned.

Meanwhile, government troops resumed shelling rebel-held Donetsk.

Shelling killed six people and wounded 15 others in the city, its council reported yesterday — the worst violation yet of the ceasefire that took effect on September 5.

The city had been heavily shelled on Sunday, damaging both residential and administrative buildings, the council said.

Observers from the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe said that they had been only 650 feet away from where four shells burst in the embattled city.

Nevertheless, prisoner exchanges continued despite the hostilities and another 73 Ukrainian soldiers were freed late on Sunday night in an exchange with the rebels.

Donetsk rebel leader Andrei Purgin confirmed that 73 rebels had been released in return.

USA: ‘MAJOR RENEWAL IN NUCLEAR ARMS’ “It is part of a nationwide wave of atomic revitalization that includes plans for a new generation of weapon carriers. A recent federal study put the collective price tag, over the next three decades, at up to a trillion dollars. This expansion comes under a president who campaigned for ‘a nuclear-free world’ and made disarmament a main goal of American defense policy.” [NYT]
