Visa consultations in U.S. consulates in Russia could be resumed in the near future, TASS news agency cited U.S. Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman as saying on Monday. "I believe that in the near future they (visa consultations) may be resumed," the agency quoted him as saying. "We are trying to do everything possible, and I hope that in coming weeks we will be able to effectively issues visas." In August, the United States began to scale back its visa services in Russia, drawing an angry reaction from Moscow three weeks after President Vladimir Putin ordered Washington to more than halve its embassy and consular staff.

Putin seeks reflected glory of Russian tsars as he unveils statue in Crimea

Vladimir Putin has unveiled a giant statue of Alexander III in Crimea with a speech drawing parallels between the rule of the conservative tsar and his own 18 years in power.   The decision to commemorate the quiet reign of Alexander III, who was the brother-in-law of Britain's Queen Alexandra, comes after the Kremlin ignored the 100th anniversary of the Russian revolution this month.  An announcer on Saturday praised the “ruler who brought peace, glory, development and stability” as Mr Putin stood at attention and an honour guard pulled back an ochre covering from the looming bronze statue, which depicts the burly, bearded emperor sitting with his hands on a sword.  Officials have frequently stressed the “stability” that Mr Putin's presidency brought after the chaotic 1990s.  Mr Putin discusses a bronze relief of Alexander III's ostensible achievements, some of which did not actually occur during the emperor's reign, Internet users pointed out.  Credit: Alexei Druzhinin/TASS via Getty Images The president is also feted for his aggressive foreign policy, including the annexation of Crimea in 2014, which he alluded to in a speech. Mr Putin said that while Alexander III was often called the “peacemaker” because he waged no large-scale wars while leading the empire from 1881-1894, he “gave Russia 13 years of peace not by yielding but by a fair and unwavering firmness”. He added that the emperor had modernised the military and begun construction of the Trans-Siberian railway.  The monument bears a saying popularly attributed to Alexander III and often quoted by Mr Putin: “Russia has only two allies, her army and fleet”.  A work removes an etching mistakenly showing a Nazi weapon on the monument to Mikhail Kalashnikov unveiled in Moscow in September.

It shows the Tretyakov gallery and the historical museum in Moscow, which were founded years before Alexander III took the throne, as well as novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky, who was already dead. The inaccuracies echoed a mistake in a monument to rifle-maker Mikhail Kalashnikov unveiled in Moscow in September: An etching showed the schematics of the StG 44 rifle used by the Nazis.

Article by WN.com Correspondent Dallas Darling It’s hard to imagine anything that would change everything. But according to Russian President Vladimir Putin, robots, combined with artificial intelligence, will do just that. In addition to the new alien minds – which we’ll pay the most attention to in the next few years – “eating” human beings, those nation-states that take the lead in creating super-human soldiers will dominate the world and space. For now, he’s also predicted science and technology will never fully replace traditional and eternal values, such as the ones found in territory, demography and surprisingly the Torah. Science Fiction Is Becoming Science Fact While touring...

The latest US and Russian bid to find enough common ground on which to build some hope for Syria is in trouble, just days ahead of talks that could make or break the peace process. A United Nations mediator has called on Bashar al-Assad's regime and a beleaguered opposition coalition to send envoys to Geneva on November 28 to resolve the seven-year-old civil war. This comes less than a week after Presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin issued a joint statement agreeing that there is "no military solution" to the conflict.
