Putin's spokesman: One more NATO step toward Russia to change European security structure

NATO’s further enlargement and “one more step towards the Russian border” will cause “the entire European security architecture to be overhauled”, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on the TVC television channel’s “Pravo Znat” (The Right to Know) programme to be aired on Saturday evening, April 19.

He said that NATO’s further enlargement would pose a serious threat to Russia because “NATO cannot stop being a military organisation” and “Russia will have to take measures to ensure its own security”.

Scottish referendum to clash with European elections

Scotland and the UK signed an agreement yesterday (15 October) opening the way for a referendum on independence in June 2014, coinciding with the European elections. But if Scots vote for independence, they would be out of the EU, at least until they renegotiate membership.
Signed in Edinburgh by Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond and UK Prime Minister David Cameron, the deal will allow Scotland to decide in a 2014 referendum whether it should become an independent country or stay within the United Kingdom.
Nationalists have timed the vote to coincide with the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn (24 June 1314), when Scottish forces led by King Robert the Bruce defeated English invaders. European elections are due to be held between 5 and 8 June 2014, unless the Council unanimously decides to change the dates.

UK and Scottish ministers in independence referendum deal

Ministers from the UK and Scottish governments have reached a deal over the independence referendum.
BBC Scotland understands the final issues outstanding between the governments were resolved on Friday afternoon.
Scottish Secretary Michael Moore spoke to Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon by telephone.
Prime Minister David Cameron and First Minister Alex Salmond are to meet on Monday to sign the agreement.
The referendum is to be held in the autumn of 2014.

Does Scotland want independence or national disaster?

Scottish Office Minister David Mundell announced that in the fall of 2014 a referendum will take place to find out whether the Scottish people want autonomy or independence from Britain, or whether they prefer Scotland to still be a part of the United Kingdom. Gaelic freedom will thus be placed on scales along with people's doubts about the ability of the new state to survive in the time of crisis.
The question of Scotland's separation from the UK appeared a long time ago. Scotland has been a part of the UK since 1707. In 1997, Scotland obtained limited autonomy within the UK.

Going solo: Scots gather for independence march and rally (PHOTOS)


Thousands of supporters of Scottish independence have taken part in a pro-independence rally in the center of Edinburgh. People flocked to the capital from across Scotland for the rally.
­Local police estimated that up to 5,000 people gathered for The March and Rally for an Independent Scotland, which is not part of the official Yes Scotland campaign. Police said that two people were arrested for minor offences.
The Meadows, a large public park in Edinburgh, where marchers started assembling at around 11:00 in the morning, with the Princes Street Gardens turned into a “sea” of nationalist paraphernalia.

Οι υποψήφιοι, οι βάσεις και η Σκοτία

Με τον Κυριάκο Κυριάκου Οι συμφωνίες Ζυρίχης - Λονδίνου μάς άφησαν πολλά αποικιακά κατάλοιπα με τα οποία ζούμε μέχρι σήμερα. Ένα από αυτά είναι και οι ‘κυρίαρχες βάσεις’ οι οποίες κατά τους Άγγλους είναι κράτος εν κράτει. Σε άρθρο της η Κυριακάτικη Εφημερίδα του Λονδίνου Sunday Times δείχνει τον δρόμο στους Σκοτσέζους και τους προειδοποιεί ότι τελικά θα αποκτήσουν κυρίαρχες βάσεις σε περίπτωση ανεξαρτητοποίησής τους.
Η Σκοτία είναι και πάλι έτοιμη να θέσει θέμα ανεξαρτησίας και απεξάρτησής της από τη Μεγάλη Βρετανία. Το μεγαλύτερο κόμμα της Σκοτίας (Εθνικό Κόμμα της Σκοτίας - SNP) συζητά πλέον ανοικτά για την ανεξαρτητοποίηση της Σκοτίας.
