SCACALLAGGIO.... DUE RUMENI SONO STATI ARRESTATI UOMO E DONNA DAI CARABINIERI DEL NUCLEO RADIO MOBILE DI ROMA SUBITO DOPO AVERE COMPIUTO ALCUNI FURTI IN UN PAESINO IN PROVINCIA DI RIETI.......

Amatrice, una delle cittadine del Centro Italia distrutte dal violento terremoto dello scorso 24 agosto, continua a fare i conti con gli "sciacalli" che cercano di lucrare sulla tragedia. L'altro lato della medaglia, che ha visto anche un Paese intero mettersi in moto nel segno della solidarietà, è riemerso nella tarda mattinata di oggi e ha preso le sembianze di una coppia di nazionalità romena, 44 anni lui e 45 lei. I due sono stati arrestati dai carabinieri del nucleo radiomobile di Roma subito dopo aver compiuto alcuni furti nelle abitazioni del paesino in provincia di Rieti distrutte dal sisma.


La coppia è stata sopresa dai militari nella loro auto, una Volkswagen Passat con targa tedesca. All'interno della vettura i due custodivano diversi oggetti molto presumibilmente frutto dei colpi messi a segno nelle abitazioni lesionate, e per questo abbandonate dai loro proprietari: oggetti di comune uso domestico, diversi capi di abbigliamento e contante per oltre 300 euro.

Oltre a questi oggetti, i due arrestati custodivano in auto i "ferri del mestiere": attrezzi da scasso e sopratutto una pistola giocattolo privata del tappo rosso, con la quale probabilmente avrebbero potuto minacciare e spaventare qualche malcapitato proprietario di casa. I due romeni, come hanno rivelato alcuni accertamenti, avevano numerosi precedenti penali per reati contro il patrimonio. I due "sciacalli", arrestati con l'accusa di furto aggravato, si trovano adesso nelle camere di sicurezza di una caserma in attesa della convalida dell'arresto da parte dell’autorità giudiziaria. Intanto tutti gli oggetti ritrovati sono stati sequestrati: dopo aver definito la provenienza della merce, la stessa sarà restituita ai legittimi proprietari.

Non si arresta l’ondata di sbarchi in Sicilia. Nella sola giornata di ieri, in quaranta operazioni
coordinate dalla Guardia Costiera, sono stati soccorsi 6500 migranti nel Canale di Sicilia. Si tratta di uno dei numeri più alti di persone recuperate in un solo giorno. Negli ultimi quattro giorni sono stati circa diecimila i migranti salvati dalle navi che presidiano il tratto di mare tra la Libia e l'Italia. Ai soccorsi delle ultime ore hanno partecipato navi della Marina Militare, della Guardia Costiera e di organizzazione non governative e, inoltre, unità inquadrate nei dispositivi Frontex e Eunavformed. Il grosso delle barche è stato trovato nel tratto di mare a largo della Libia.


Bimba salvata nel Siracusano – Tra i migranti soccorsi nelle ultime ore c’è anche una bambina di pochi mesi: si tratta della piccola Melorin, iraniana di 22 mesi, lasciata insieme ad altre decine di migranti sull’isolotto di Portopalo di Capopassero, nel Siracusano. I soccorsi sono stati immediati: un medico di Milano che si trovava in una spiaggia vicina è accorso e la bambina, che era in cattive condizioni di salute, è stata rianimata e trasferita nell'ospedale Trigona di Noto. Con lei c’erano anche la madre e le sue sorelle di 19 e 22 anni. Nello stesso gruppo dei migranti c’erano anche altre otto donne e sette minori.

Indagini in corso a Trapani – Sono intanto in corso indagini a Trapani su due migranti trovati in possesso di materiale islamista. I due sono ospiti di un centro di accoglienza e sono entrambi richiedenti asilo. “Sono state trovate delle immagini sui cellulari di due uomini di nazionalità libica – così ha spiegato il prefetto di Trapani, Leopoldo Falco – e ci sono delle indagini in corso, ma i due soggetti restano assegnati al centro di riferimento”. Si indaga per terrorismo.

Russian news agencies are reporting that a court in the Armenian capital of Yerevan has dismissed a move to detain a Russian citizen on charges of money laundering and illegal arms sales by the United States. The court dismissed a motion by Armenian prosecutors on August 29 that sought to detain Sergei Mironov, but the case for the U.S. extradition request is not yet closed, and will be settled within 40 days, Ruben Kirakosyan, President of the Russian-Armenian Bar Association, told RIA Novosti.

Russian news agencies are reporting that a court in the Armenian capital of Yerevan has dismissed a move to detain a Russian citizen on charges of money laundering and illegal arms sales by the United States. 
The court dismissed a motion by Armenian prosecutors on August 29 that sought to detain Sergei Mironov, but the case for the U.S. extradition request is not yet closed, and will be settled within 40 days, Ruben Kirakosyan, President of the Russian-Armenian Bar Association, told RIA Novosti.
“Before that, Mironov will be in freedom, but will have to stay in Yerevan. He will not be allowed to leave the country until the issue is settled,” Kirakosyan said.
Mironov was detained at Yerevan's international airport on a U.S. government request on August 26 for alleged money laundering and illegal transfer of military technology from the United States to an undisclosed foreign country.
Mironov, an employee at the Moscow office of Synesis, a company developing intelligent video surveillance and business intelligence based on computer vision, was placed on an international wanted list by U.S. authorities in May 2016.

U.S. President Barack Obama is likely to have an informal talk with Russian President Vladimir Putin during the Group of 20 summit in China next week, the White House said on August 29.

U.S. President Barack Obama is likely to have an informal talk with Russian President Vladimir Putin during the Group of 20 summit in China next week, the White House said on August 29. 
Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes told reporters it is not certain whether Obama would hold a formal meeting with Putin during the economic summit on September 4-5, but the two leaders often speak on the margins of such summits.
"We usually try to find an opportunity for the two leaders to try to spend some time together, usually to focus on Syria and Ukraine," Rhodes said. 
Obama has been cool to Putin since Russia annexed Ukraine's Crimea peninsula in 2014, but he has struggled to find common ground with Russia to end the fighting in Syria's five-year civil war.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said a meeting between Putin and Obama has not yet been coordinated. 
"We are ready," Peskov said, "but there is no final agreement yet."

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe's media freedom advocate called on Ukrainian authorities to carry out a thorough investigation into the death of journalist Aleksandr Shchetinin.

Shchetinin, a founder of the Novy Region online news agency, was found dead in his apartment in Kyiv on August 28.

“The circumstances of this tragedy must be swiftly and thoroughly investigated,” OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media Dunja Mijatović said on August 29. “His death is a loss for the media community."

Mijatović repeated her call for authorities to improve the fragile situation regarding the safety of journalists and fully and effectively address the "issue of impunity."
Shchetinin, originally from the Russian Federation, worked as a journalist in Ukraine for several years.
Ukrainian police said they suspect Shchetinin’s death was a suicide.
Authorities said friends who visited Shchetinin’s apartment to congratulate him on his birthday found him seated in a chair on his balcony with a gunshot wound to the head and a gun on the ground beside him.
Police said Shchetinin also had written an e-mail to a colleague in which he declared his intention to kill himself.

Una bomba è esplosa nella notte a Neder-Over-Heembeek, nella zona nord di Bruxelles, nell'Istituto di criminologia locale, senza provocare vittime. Lo riporta la Bbc online, citando media belgi. Poco prima delle 2.30 un'auto è entrata nel parcheggio dell'istituto e "una o più" persone sospette hanno fatto esplodere un ordigno vicino ai laboratori. Non è chiaro però se si tratti di un'autobomba o di un esplosivo piazzato e fatto esplodere a distanza. L’edificio al momento dell’esplosione era vuoto e non risultano esservi persone ferite. Un enorme incendio è scoppiato nella struttura, visto da chilometri di distanza. I pompieri intervenuti sono riusciti a domare le fiamme nel corso della notte. Ingenti, sembra, i danni provocati. L’azione non è stata al momento rivendicata. Sul posto uomini della polizia scientifica.


Due persone sarebbero già state arrestate in relazione alla vicenda, ma non è chiaro se si tratta dei veri e propri responsabili, riferisce una procuratrice di Bruxelles, Ine Van Wymersch, aggiungendo che l'attacco è stato condotto da più di una persona. "Probabilmente non è il terrorismo. E' un atto criminale", ha specificato Van Wymersch. "Non posso confermare che ci fosse qualche bomba", ha sottolineato.

Sberbank’s capitalization on the Moscow Stock Exchange reached 3.24 trillion rubles as of Friday, Aug. 26, while Gazprom’s stood slightly lower at 3.19 trillion rubles. Rosneft remains Russia’s most valuable company, with capitalization of 3.72 trillion rubles. 
Sberbank’s ordinary shares rose through trading by 1.69 percent to 145.25 rubles. Preferred shares were up 1.25 percent to 104.09 rubles, and the MICEX index rose by 0.39 percent.
“It seems Gazprom will have to live with this new reality,” said BCS trading department chief Maxim Ryabov. He said Sberbank’s financial results are outperforming all forecasts, increasing share value, whereas Gazprom has failed to keep pace. “Gazprom has yet to implement any structural changes, and until it does, the company will slowly fall behind,” Ryabov said. The price of Sberbank ordinary shares has risen by 43.4 percent since the start of the year, while preferred shares were up 36 percent. Gazprom securities grew by just 0.1 percent, while the MICEX index increased by 13.7 percent over that period.
Very little has improved at Gazprom, said Capital portfolio manager Vadim Bit-Avragim. “Internal efficiency has not improved, and the additional tax burden, low demand for gas, and strong competition from the European market are all negative factors,” he said. The opposite is true of Sberbank, he argued: The state-owned bank is benefitting from the reduction in funding costs, and Sberbank gained new market share after the Central Bank conducted a “financial cleansing” of the banking sector.
Gazprom does not have a program in place for increasing capitalization, but “is taking steps” toward that end, said a company representative, who added that part of the bonus top managers receive is based on the stock price. Sberbank earned 263.1 billion rubles in the first six months of 2016, with Q2 earnings making up 145.4 billion rubles. That exceeds analysts’ most optimistic expectations.
Analytical firms UBS and Citi were closest to the mark, predicting that Sberbank would earn 248.3 billion rubles for the first six months and 145.4 billion rubles in the second quarter. “The main factor influencing the price of Sberbank shares is the growth in profitability due to a recovery in net interest margins and a normalization of transfers to reserves,” UBS analyst Mikhail Shlemov said.
Sberbank’s capitalization first equaled that of Gazprom on Thursday, Aug. 25, on the heels of a positive company report and an announcement by Sberbank leaders that dividends might increase in the medium term, Bit-Avragim said. The Sberbank press service mentioned the same reasons for the increase in comments on Friday.
One owner of Sberbank shares said they make a good investment. “I plan to sell mine when the price reaches 150 rubles,” he said. “According to my estimates that should happen in September or October, although, considering the latest reports, it could be even sooner.”
From May 2015 to May 2016, Sberbank increased its share of foreign investors by 2.3 percent to 45.6 percent, while the share of Russian investors fell from 2.8 percent to only 1.3 percent, Sberbank deputy chairperson Bella Zlatkis said in May.
International investors might also keep demand for Sberbank shares high now — as opposed to Gazprom securities. And although Russian shares experienced an outflow of funds during the week of Aug. 24, fund managers at EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) generally continue to hold a significant share of assets in financial sector securities, EPFR Global said in a report released on Friday. On average, that share is close to the record level seen at the end of Q4 2015. At the same time, fund managers reduced investments in shares of raw materials and energy companies in the region.

Of all today’s political bromances, perhaps the most interesting is between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
Russia and Iran have enjoyed strong economic links since 1991, when Moscow agreed to build Iran’s nuclear reactor at Bushehr. Russia badly needed the cash; Iran badly needed the expertise: It was the perfect match.
This relationship eventually translated into greater diplomatic ties in the early 2000s as Russia, together with China, repeatedly watered down UN sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program.
Relations appear to have grown even closer. Last week, Russian Tupolev-22M3 bombers and Sukhoi-34 fighter-bombers conducted air strikes in Syria from Iran’s Nojeh Airbase in Hamadan, in Western Iran. Major arms deals for the sale to Iran of Sukhoi fighter jets were also mooted in the days following.
All of these developments may herald a new Russian strategy in its fight against Syria. While the Russian military claimed all operations from Nojeh were complete, the possibility of future cooperation was very clearly left on the table. “Further use of the Hamadan airbase in the Islamic Republic of Iran by the Russian Air Forces will be carried out … depending on the prevailing circumstances in Syria,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman, Major General Igor Konashenkov said, according to pan-Arabic news channel Al Arabiya.
The importance of this deepening relationship cannot be understated. It has far-flung consequences not only for Russia and Iran, but for the United States and Syria’s civil war.
As far as the Iranians are concerned, its foreign policy must be viewed, as ever, in terms of the perennial domestic struggle between hardliners and those more moderately inclined.
The latest moves are not without controversy in Tehran’s political elites. “The current Iranian government headed by [President Hasan] Rouhani as well as reformists are actually suspicious of the Russians and would prefer that Iran balances its relations with the West,” explains Meir Javedanfar, Iran lecturer at the IDC Herzliya in Israel. “But the hardliners support such relations with the Russians, seeing America as their biggest enemy and Russia as an important counterbalance against the United States.”
In the eyes of Iranian hardliners, helping Russia in Syria is a perfect way to counter Rouhani’s efforts to repair relations with the West. In addition, it offers a possible quid pro quo of potential Russian military support in places such as Iraq and Yemen, as well as Syria. For Moscow, having a base in Iran rather than southern Russia is a no-brainer: Being that much closer to their targets, Russian planes can increase their payloads: they will drop more bombs; more damage will be wrought; more people will die. And for Iran: If Russia kills more anti-Assad forces, fewer Iranian soldiers have to die doing the same thing.
As ever, with both countries, issues of legality surround the whole affair. At the same time, as Javedanfar observes, those Russians already under sanctions are unlikely to want to risk further sanctions, and will have at least thought out a game plan. “As far as they are concerned, they either see such a move as legal at best or, in a worst case scenario, if their move was deemed illegal, they can use their veto at the UN Security Council,” he says.
As far as Washington is concerned, the move ostensibly harms its position of backing the anti–Assad pro-democracy rebels — however small a minority they are. But by now U.S. President Barack Obama’s policy on Syria, and indeed his entire foreign policy outlook, is clear. As far as he is concerned, Syria is the definition of a quagmire. If the Russians and the Iranians want to expend both billions of dollars and heavy casualties for a war with no end in sight, then let them have at it. Both will be weakened as a result. Both will suffer the effects of being bogged down in an intractable Middle East war. If the Russians and Iranians want Syria to become their Iraq, they are welcome to it. Better them than the United States, which has spent at least $4 trillion in Iraq and Afghanistan.
In the words of Javedanfar: “If the Russians and the Iranian regime think that with more bombs and closer military cooperation they can indefinitely keep a leader in power who has bombed, gassed, starved and tortured to death 200,000 of his people, they are delusional. Let’s see how many bombs, dead people in Syria and billions of dollars it will take them to find this out.”

Rumors over the fate of longtime Uzbek President Islam Karimov are mounting following reports of his hospitalization. The president was last seen publicly on state television on Aug. 17 and had been expected to appear at Independence Day celebrations in the Uzbek capital of Tashkent on Sept. 1, marking 25 years since the country’s independence from the Soviet Union.

Rumors over the fate of longtime Uzbek President Islam Karimov are mounting following reports of his hospitalization. The president was last seen publicly on state television on Aug. 17 and had been expected to appear at Independence Day celebrations in the Uzbek capital of Tashkent on Sept. 1, marking 25 years since the country’s independence from the Soviet Union.
The most information about the president’s condition is contained in a short statement posted on Facebook by his daughter Lola. Karimov, 78, was “in intensive care,” she said, after having suffered a brain hemorrhage. His condition was “stable,” the daughter wrote, but it was “too early to make any forecasts.”
According to sources of the opposition People’s Movement of Uzbekistan, Karimov fainted following a reception he had thrown for the country’s Olympic team on Friday evening. During the reception he had “drunk too much vodka,” and “ignored warnings” from one of his aides. The reception reportedly ended at around 10 p.m. — and right after it did, the president lost consciousness. He was hospitalized and doctors from Germany and Israel were reportedly flown into the capital Tashkent.

Undisputed Leader

In 27 years in power, Karimov built a heavy-handed authoritarian regime that rendered him undisputed leader. He became leader of the Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic in 1989, and remained in his post after the country gained its independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. 
Karimov suppressed all the opposition in his country. In Uzbekistan, thousands of opposition activists from the Islamist party Khizbut Takhrir were jailed, and thousands fled to Russia, says Alexey Malashenko from Carnegie Moscow Center. In May 2005, hundreds were estimated to have been killed when Uzbek military forces crushed a revolt in the city of Andizhan in eastern Uzbekistan.
A recent report from Human Rights Watch drew attention to the most obvious excesses of the regime. “Thousands of people are imprisoned on politically motivated charges, torture is endemic, and authorities regularly harass human rights activists, opposition members, and journalists,” it says. Reporters Without Borders’ posted a similarly negative review of Karimov’s Uzbekistan, ranking the country 166 out of 180 in this year’s index of press freedom.
Today is not the first time Karimov’s health has become a matter of concern. In the past six years, he is reported to have suffered a heart attack and slipped into a coma twice.

What Next? 

Karimov’s death will leave a chasm in Uzbek politics, and there has been much speculation that a struggle over succession could add to instability in the region. The likelihood, however, is that ruling clans will come to an agreement to ensure the regime’s survival. The regime “can easily replicate itself,” says Daniil Kislov, editor-in-chief of the Fergana.ru website
One person highly unlikely to take the throne is Gulnara Karimova, the leader’s famous daughter. A designer, a socialite and a business woman, she has since been pushed out from the political elite and faces corruption charges in the U.S. and in Netherlands over hundreds of millions of dollars. 
Karimova was put under house arrest in Tashkent, apparently on the orders of Rustam Inoyatov, the head of the Uzbek National Security Service (SNB) and major Uzbekistan power broker. “Inoyatov doesn’t want to rule Uzbekistan himself. But you can’t find your way to the top in Uzbekistan without his sanction,” says Alexey Malashenko.
Both Kislov and Malashenko agree the most likely candidate for Karimov’s succession is the current prime minister Shavkat Mirziyayev. “In Uzbekistan, a lot — even more than in Russia — is determined by security services,” Kislov says. “Mirziyayev comes from the SNB, he’s also very close to the president’s family, especially his influential wife, so if he replaces Karimov, little would change.”
Andrey Grozin, Middle Asia expert of the CIS Countries Institute, however, suggests the deputy prime minister Rustam Azimov is another possible successor. “Whoever is next, it will be someone from Karimov’s inner circle, someone eager to maintain the existing establishment”, the expert adds.
One thing to be certain of is how much Uzbek political elites fears destabilization, and will work to avoid it. If the transition of power goes wrong, that will be the moment when different groups of influence might appeal to Islamist oppositionists in Russia and Afghanistan. “At the moment it doesn’t look likely, though no one ever knows for sure when comes to Afghanistan,” Malashenko says.
There are many unknowns when it comes to the future president himself. “As you have seen, Lola has asked to respect the president’s ’privacy’ in her Facebook post,” says Kislov. “There will be no news on his condition until it turns for the better or for the worse. In the meantime, while he is still alive, speculating on who is going to replace him will remain a strict taboo.”
Rumors of Karimov dying have repeatedly resurfaced for the past 10 years. Every time in the past, however, the president has confounded predictions of his demise: “Modern elite medicine works miracles,” says Grozin. “You never know — maybe he’ll spend a while in hospital and surprise everyone by returning from the dead.”

The head of the Kazakh Journalists' Union and chairman of the National Press Club has been hospitalized for the second time since a trial began against him last week for on charges of embezzlement and tax evasion. 
Seitqazy Mataev and his son, Aset, the director of the KazTAG news agency who also is being tried on embezzlement charges, went on trial for corruption in Astana on August 23.
Seitqazy Mataev felt ill on the first day of the trial and was rushed from the courtroom to a hospital. His symptoms included high blood pressure.
The trial resumed on August 29. 
However, Mataev's lawyer Andrei Petrov said Mataev was again rushed to a hospital with extremely high blood pressure.
The Mataevs were detained in February and later placed under house arrest. 
Both deny the charges against them, and rights groups having denounced the charges as politically motivated.
