MOSCOW — Russia accused Britain and the United States on Friday of trying to incite conflict in the Black Sea and said it would defend its borders using all possible means, including military force. Russia claims the U.K.'s HMS Defender violated its border near Cape Fiolent in Crimea on Wednesday. "Washington and London are denying reality... they are trying to provoke conflict," he said. It confirmed a British destroyer, HMS Defender, had sailed through what it described as waters belonging to Ukraine. The British embassy in Tbilisi, the Georgian capital, wrote on Twitter on Friday that HMS Defender was set to arrive in the port city of Batumi on the eastern coast of the Black Sea.

He seemed skeptical of arguments from lawyers for Rudy Giuliani, Mike Lindell, and Sidney Powell. Dominion sued Giuliani, Powell, and MyPillow in three separate lawsuits filed in January and February, each one alleging $1.3 billion in damages. Attorneys for Giuliani, Powell, and Lindell have submitted a wide variety of legal defenses in recent months asking Nichols to throw out the lawsuits. Joe Sibley, representing Giuliani, said Dominion couldn't show evidence it had lost government contracts because of the Trump lawyer's allegations. Aside from their federal lawsuits with Dominion, each of the conspiracy theorists faces other headaches.

After U.S. President Joe Biden met Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva on June 16, French President Emmanuel Macron said the first EU summit with Putin since January 2014 would be "a dialogue to defend our interests". But after late night talks at their meeting in Brussels, the 27 EU leaders failed to reach an agreement, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said early on Friday. EU summits with Russia ended after Moscow annexed Ukraine's Crimea peninsula in March 2014 and the West imposed sanctions. France and Germany want to be able to work with Russia on combating climate change and to find ways to stabilise relations. The EU on Thursday imposed economic sanctions on Belarus, an ally of Russia that the Kremlin sees as a buffer state between Russia and NATO.

Soldiers carry a coffin containing the remains of one of the eleven Ukrainian victims of the Ukraine International Airlines flight 752 plane disaster, at Boryspil International Airport, outside Kiev, Ukraine, January 19, 2020. The report, published on Thursday, found that while the shooting down of Ukrainian International Airlines flight 752 was not premeditated, it did not absolve Iranian officials of responsibility for the incident. "If this highly politicised and illegal behaviour by Canada became the norm, all countries, even the civil aviation industry, would be the main victims." Ottawa has repeatedly complained that Iran's official explanation did not answer many important questions about the downing of the Ukrainian plane. Canada does not have formal diplomatic relations with Iran, making the process lengthy and complex.

Republicans are itching to conduct investigations of Hunter Biden if they win the majority in 2022. GOP inquiries would force the White House to play whack-a-mole with Hunter Biden accusations. Republicans are gearing up for a hot pursuit of Hunter Biden should they win a majority in Congress in the 2022 midterms. Republicans say they want to know more about Hunter Biden's ties to China and the Ukraine gas company Burisma. Johnson has this year sent at least four letters to federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies demanding answers on different Hunter Biden allegations, including on possible ties to "foreign nationals connected to the communist Chinese government"; unethical links to a Biden administration DOJ appointee; and an incident allegedly involving Hunter Biden and a firearm.

Russian deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov arrives for a meeting with U.S. special envoy Marshall Billingslea in Vienna, Austria June 22, 2020. REUTERS/Leonhard FoegerMOSCOW, June 25 (Reuters) - Russia accused Britain and the United States on Friday of trying to incite conflict in the Black Sea and said it would defend its borders using all possible means, including military force. Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov was speaking a day after Moscow warned Britain it would bomb British naval vessels in the Black Sea if what it called provocative actions by the British navy were repeated off the coast of Russia-annexed Crimea. Russia said on Wednesday it had fired warning shots and dropped bombs in the path of a British warship to chase it out of Black Sea waters off the coast of Crimea. It said it believed any shots fired were a pre-announced Russian "gunnery exercise", and that no bombs had been dropped.

Rudy Giuliani has claimed that the suspension of his license to practise law in New York was part of a plot to silence him because he was so effective at arguing former President Donald Trump's election-fraud claims. Giuliani appeared on the right-wing Newsmax network hours after an appelate court in New York suspended his law license on Thursday. In explaining the decision to suspend Giuliani's license, the New York court on Thursday cited his promotion of Trump's election-fraud conspiracy theories.

MOSCOW — Russia is prepared to target intruding warships if they fail to heed warnings, a senior diplomat declared Thursday after a Black Sea incident in which a British destroyer sailed near Crimea in an area that Russia claims as its territorial waters. Britain denied that account, insisted its ship wasn’t fired upon and said it was sailing in Ukrainian waters. Minutes later, the Defender left Russian waters, the ministry said. It insisted the ship was making a routine journey through an internationally recognized travel lane and remained in Ukrainian waters. The U.K., like most of the world, recognizes Crimea as part of Ukraine despite the peninsula's 2014 annexation by Russia.

After 'negative spiral', EU seeks new Russia strategy

European Union leaders attend a round table meeting on the second day of a face-to-face EU summit in Brussels, Belgium May 25, 2021. Since Russia annexed Ukraine's Crimea peninsula in 2014 and the EU froze summits with Putin, EU policy has zigzagged between imposing economic sanctions and allowing a new gas pipeline from Russia to Germany to reach completion. EU leaders are now expected to build on that paper to flesh out ways to both call out covert Russian action and work with Moscow on combating climate change. "Out of a confrontational of ideas comes understanding," a senior EU diplomat said in support of the EU strategy, although the envoy doubted a sudden improvement in trust. The EU will on Thursday or Friday publish details of economic sanctions on Belarus, an ally of Russia that the Kremlin sees as a buffer state between Russia and NATO.

REUTERS/Heinz-Peter Bader/File PhotoKYIV, June 24 (Reuters) - Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskiy on Thursday signed a decree imposing sanctions on tycoon Dmytro Firtash, the presidential office said. The decree said sanctions included an asset freeze, ban on capital withdrawal, revocation of licences, restriction of resource transit and other restrictions. Ukraine's security and defence council last week announced the sanctions against Firtash, accusing him of selling titanium products that allegedly end up being used by Russian military enterprises. read moreThe manufacture of titanium products is a core business in Firtash's Group DF and it includes titanium mining and enrichment, the production of titanium dioxide, titanium slag, sponge ingots and slabs. Firtash is a former supporter of Ukraine’s ousted pro-Russian president Viktor Yanukovich and made a fortune selling Russian gas to the Kyiv government.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, personal attorney to U.S. President Donald Trump, speaks in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, November 7, 2020. A New York court on Thursday suspended Rudy Giuliani from practicing law in New York state due to making "false and misleading statements" about the election loss of former President Donald Trump, his client. It also comes as Giuliani is under criminal investigation by that same federal prosecutor's office in Manhattan in connection with his work in Ukraine. Giuliani and Trump since last November have made false claims about the legitimacy of the election of President Joe Biden, claiming that Trump was swindled out of a victory only by widespread ballot fraud in key swing states. In fact, the order added, "The public records submitted on this motion unequivocally show that respondent's statement is false.

REUTERS/Andrew KellyNEW YORK, June 24 (Reuters) - Rudy Giuliani's New York law license was suspended on Thursday, after a state appeals court found he had lied in arguing that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from his client, former U.S. President Donald Trump. Citing the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, the Appellate Division said Giuliani's eagerness to trumpet false claims of a rigged election could erode public confidence in the election process, a hallmark of American democracy, and the legal profession. The court also criticized Giuliani's unsubstantiated claims of voting by dead people, including the boxing heavyweight champion Joe Frazier, who died in 2011. He began representing Trump in April 2018 as federal Special Counsel Robert Mueller was probing Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Russia said it fired warning shots at the Royal Navy destroyer, which the British government denied. Russia said one of its warships fired warning shots and a warplane dropped bombs in the path of British destroyer Defender on Wednesday to drive it away from waters near the Crimean city of Sevastopol. "If it doesn't help, we may drop bombs and not just in the path but right on target, if colleagues don't get it otherwise." Mikhail Khodaryonok, a retired Russian army colonel who works as a military analyst in Moscow, said the Russian warplane apparently dropped bombs miles away from the British ship. He charged that the British denial that Russia had fired warning shots and dropped bombs to chase the Defender away was an attempt to save face.

Mr. Giuliani is also licensed to practice law in Washington, D.C., and the decision in New York could set off disciplinary proceedings there, although that is not automatic. Although Mr. Giuliani started his own law firm in 2019, it has been decades since he regularly argued in courtrooms. Before Mr. Giuliani became Mr. Trump’s lawyer, he was running his own security consulting business. Still, the suspension marked another stunning chapter in the rise and fall of Mr. Giuliani, once a legal and political star. The federal investigation into Mr. Giuliani centers on his dealings in Ukraine before the 2020 election, when he sought to damage President Biden’s credibility.

The Renault-Nissan workers union petitioned the Madras High court last month seeking to halt operations, saying that social distancing norms were being flouted and company-provided health benefits were outweighed by the risk to their lives. Nissan, which owns a majority stake in the Renault-Nissan plant near the city of Chennai, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. However, only the Renault-Nissan factory will be inspected as unions at other automakers have not raised objections, the court said. Production at the Renault-Nissan plant was nearly three-fifths of pre-lockdown levels on June 17, when DISH conducted the review.
