Patients seek to sue Quebec over alleged mistreatment in longterm care facilities

first_imgMONTREAL – Allegations of patients being forced to unnecessarily wear diapers, a lack of air conditioning and not being offered basic items such as shampoo, soap and toothpaste, form part of a class-action lawsuit against Quebec long-term care facilities.A patients’ rights group, the Conseil pour la protection des Malades, held a news conference Tuesday to announce that it is seeking authorization to file the lawsuit that targets 22 provincially administered facilities.It alleges that cuts to the Quebec health network since 2015 have led to a deterioration in the level of care and service provided to patients in the facilities.Court documents allege that a number of long-term centres oblige residents to pay for medication and laundry services that should be included in the residents’ fees.The documents also allege that a number of residents and family members have to pay staff under the table to get residents’ diapers changed.Lead plaintiff Daniel Pilote, a resident at a long-term centre in nearby Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que., said he’s been the victim of mistreatment and wants to use the courts to improve conditions and obtain justice for himself and others.“I find it inconceivable that I’ve been mistreated for the past two years,” he told reporters.Pilote, 56, who is paralyzed from the neck down, has been living in the facility since 2014 after being diagnosed with muscular dystrophy.Conseil spokesman Paul Brunet said that in a majority of the facilities, administration offices are air-conditioned, but that’s not the case for the patients’ rooms.“What I’ve heard is that people who have the means to pay $250 or $300 for three months will be supplied air conditioning and those who can’t end up in a cafeteria or a place where there’s air conditioning,” he said.“You should not have to be suffocate in a 34-degree room in a long-term facility.”The advocacy group said it believes that thousands of the 37,000 people residing in the facilities have suffered undignified conditions, including being forced to defecate in their diapers.Brunet added that the patients’ basic constitutional rights to security and dignity have also been violated.Lawyer Philippe Larochelle said in the court documents that the amounts being sought for each person vary from $250 to $750 for every month they have been in residence.But Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard said Tuesday that the majority of long-term facilities provide quality services.“We are continually working to make improvements,” he told reporters. “But if there are unacceptable actions that are being carried out, we should all condemn them.”Couillard noted that $6 billion has been invested in public health since 2014 and a large part of that was for home-care and long-term care.He said he wouldn’t comment further because the matter is before the courts.last_img read more

WASHINGTON — The Latest on President Donald Trump’s trip to Texas on Wednesday (all times local):10:40 a.m.President Donald Trump is heading to Texas to raise re-election money in two areas that backed his Democratic opponent in 2016.Trump is to stroke donors at separate events Wednesday in San Antonio and Houston.Republican Party Chair Ronna McDaniel said the pair of fundraisers would bring in at least $6 million to be shared by Trump’s re-election effort and the Republican National Committee.In between fundraisers, Trump planned to sign a pair of energy-related executive orders.__12:37 a.m.President Donald Trump will announce an executive order during a trip to Texas on Wednesday that could make it harder for states to scuttle pipelines and other energy projects based on concerns about their impact on water quality.Trump has made it a priority to expand energy development, in part by rolling back government regulations.Pointing to Washington state and New York, Republican lawmakers have complained about states using the permitting process to stop energy projects.Trump will order the Environmental Protection Agency to issue new guidance that states will have to follow to comply with the Clean Water Act.A second executive order will streamline the process for infrastructure projects that cross international borders. The move follows Trump’s decision to issue a new permit for the Keystone XL oil pipeline.The Associated Press read more

UK hails peaceful polls

Britain has hailed the largely peaceful conduct of the provincial council elections saying the high turnout across all three provinces demonstrates the desire of the Sri Lankan people to engage in this democratic process which ensures all provinces now have a council for the first time since the end of the military conflict.Foreign Office Minister Alistair Burt said that the polls have been described as largely peaceful by Commonwealth and domestic observer missions, with high turnout across all three provinces. “The lasting reconciliation all Sri Lankans deserve cannot be delivered by these polls alone, but the elections remain an important step in recognising the rights and aspirations of all citizens,” Burt said. He called on the Sri Lankan government and parties who won provincial seats to work together to contribute meaningfully to effective and inclusive regional governance in Sri Lanka. He also welcomed the access given to international observers and the overall conduct of polling day but noted with concern the “credible reports” of the misuse of state resources for campaigning, incidents of intimidation, and violence in the run-up to elections.“I call on the authorities to investigate these serious allegations and ensure that the perpetrators are brought to justice,” he said.

Meet the candidates for Hamilton West Ancaster Dundas

Hamilton West Ancaster Dundas is a newly-formed riding for the 2018 provincial election. But some of the candidates vying to represent the area are familiar faces.Ted McMeekin believes the Liberals are regaining support since Kathleen Wynne’s debate performance.“You know, the good lord made the world round so none of us could look too far ahead down the road.”The 70 year-old says he feels like he retired 14 years ago and does his MPP work for fun. From what people tell him, he expects to keep his seat.“They say ‘I really like you Ted and I’m going to support you, in spite of how I’m feeling about the general scene.’ ”McMeekin says people want to stop Doug Ford, but PC Candidate Ben Levitt says what he hears at the door is fear of the NDP.“If you don’t like what the Liberals have done you’re going to be really scared of what the NDP has in store for you.”The 26 year-old was nominated twice for the Tories after the first battle was tainted by allegations of vote tampering and is still under investigation by police.He says the PC message is resonating.“The middle class tax is going to be cut by 20 per cent, we’re going to cut the gas tax by 10 per cent, we’re going to put money back in people’s pockets, it really excites people.”He says the PC platform financing has been clear.“The Liberal government says there’s no more money to find, I tell that to people at the doors and they laugh.We’re gonna get in there, find four cents on the dollar of efficiencies.”Peter Ormond is getting ready to give away a hundred pear trees at an annual event. This is is fourth time running for the Green Party.“The Trumpism, the Fordism, people are just saying screw it. We have to realize people have different views and that’s why proportional representation.”Candidate Sandy Shaw says from her perspective, Hamilton West Ancaster Dundas is ready for a hometown Andrea Horwath-led NDP government.“People are starting to realize what we know in Hamilton, that Andrea is a straight up hardworking woman who will be amazing as our next Premier and I’m hearing that here, that they know Andrea.”The NDP have said they would not form a coalition government with the Liberals but Ted McMeekin says his intuition tells him that’s what will happen on June 7; minority government, with a possible agreement between those parties. read more

Trudeau promotes spending to help economy as experts warn of weak outlook

Trudeau promotes spending to help economy as experts warn of weak outlook Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks to media about his first 100 days in office and announces the expansion of the Canada Summer Jobs Program at the Dovercourt Boys and Girls Club in Toronto on Friday, February 12, 2016. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Aaron Vincent Elkaim by Andy Blatchford, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 12, 2016 11:53 am MDT Last Updated Feb 12, 2016 at 3:01 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email OTTAWA – Justin Trudeau is talking up the need for more federal spending to help the economy —even as the experts warn his government of an ever-gloomier outlook.Speaking in Toronto to mark his 100th day in office, Trudeau said it’s more important than ever for the Liberal government to spend on growth-generating projects, such as the party’s promised infrastructure plan.The prime minister made the comments shortly after a group of private-sector economists shared their latest economic forecasts with Finance Minister Bill Morneau at a meeting just across town.For decades, federal finance ministers have used an average of private-sector economic forecasts as the foundation of their fiscal plans.The projections can have significant impacts on just how much wiggle room is available for governments to spend.That fiscal flexibility is poised to be considerably tighter than it was in the fall, the last time the group was convened.For example, Conference Board of Canada chief economist Glen Hodgson said he gave Morneau a 2016 growth forecast Friday of just 1.7 per cent — one of the most optimistic predictions in the room.But Trudeau said a struggling economy provides an even stronger argument in favour of the Liberal government’s job-creation plan: running deficits in the coming years in order to spend billions on stimulus like infrastructure projects.Many experts, including Hodgson, say infrastructure investment is one of the best ways to stimulate an economy.Trudeau also highlighted the other Liberal measures he said will help the economy, such as boosting child-benefit payments and providing some income-tax relief for middle earners while hiking rates for top earners.He said Canadians voted for the Liberal plan instead of the platforms presented by the Conservatives and New Democrats, both of which argued it was more important to balance the budget at all costs.“We said, ‘No, we need to invest at all costs,’” Trudeau said.In a recent interview published by Montreal’s La Presse newspaper, Trudeau said his government would not fulfil its promise to keep the 2016-17 deficit under $10 billion. He did not indicate how high the shortfall could go.In that same interview, Trudeau also shied away from an earlier vow to balance the federal books before the end of his government’s four-year mandate, a pledge that was central to the Liberal election platform.Instead, the government has been emphasizing its other, more flexible “fiscal anchor,” which is to continue lowering Canada’s debt-to-GDP ratio during its mandate.While Trudeau has acknowledged government finances were even tighter than they were a couple of months ago, he has not indicated what will become of the Liberals’ many non-economic spending vows.Morneau is facing fiscal pressure as he prepares his first budget, expected late next month. His department last consulted private-sector economists ahead of the November fiscal update.At the time, the average 2016 projections for Canada’s real GDP was two per cent and US$54 per barrel of oil, which has a big impact on Ottawa’s bottom line.On Friday, Hodgson said he told Morneau that the Conference Board’s growth projection for real GDP was 1.7 per cent for 2016, while it predicted oil to average about US$38.“The economy is in not as good a shape as when the Liberals got elected,” said Hodgson, who also noted that uncertain global economic conditions have created a “very turbulent environment” for budget planning.Ted Mallett, chief economist for the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, said he provided Morneau with a 2016 prediction of 1.5 per cent growth for real GDP. In the fall, he said the lobby group projected 2.1 per cent.Mallett said his fall forecast for oil predicted an average of US$48 in 2016. That number was dropped to US$33 for Friday’s meeting with Morneau.“And that’s still well above where we are today,” he said, referring to prices that fell below US$30 in recent days.“I think everybody (at the meeting) realized the kinds of challenges that the minister is facing… Nobody was underestimating the kinds of issues that one would have to deal with in his shoes.”Follow @AndyBlatchford on Twitter read more

UN food aid agency condemns ISILs manipulation of desperately needed food in

The Programme says it is trying to verify the authenticity of the photographs, where they were taken and the circumstances surrounding this incident. “WFP condemns this manipulation of desperately needed food aid inside Syria,” Muhannad Hadi, WFP’s Emergency Regional Coordinator for Syria, said in a statement this week. “We urge all parties to the conflict to respect humanitarian principles and allow humanitarian workers including our partners to deliver food to the most vulnerable and hungry families,” he added. The photos seem to have been taken in Dayr Hafr, in eastern rural Aleppo governorate about 50 kilometres from Aleppo city. The Programme last reached Dayr Hafr on 5 August, 2014, through a cross-line convoy that delivered 1,700 food rations, enough to feed 8,500 people for one month. Last September, ISIL raided WFP’s partner the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) warehouses there where undistributed WFP food rations may have been stored. The WFP warns that all areas controlled by ISIL are security hot spots, which severely limits the ability to monitor food distributions.The Programme has operated in Syria since the start of the crisis without interruptions, delivering assistance to more than 4 million people every month – in addition to over 1.8 million refugees in the neighbouring countries. read more

Jerry Jones Cooper even helping surging Cowboys on defence

ARLINGTON, Texas — Amari Cooper’s 90-yard touchdown catch was soon followed by DeMarcus Lawrence’s first career interception in a Dallas win over Washington that pulled the Cowboys even with the Redskins atop the NFC East.Call Jerry Jones crazy, but the Cowboys owner and general manager believes those two big plays are connected. And he’s suggested as much several times in the month since he traded his next first-round pick in the draft to Oakland for a new No. 1 receiver.“It’s got this entire bunch involved,” Jones said of Cooper’s impact during a three-game winning streak that put the Cowboys back in contention. “It had to do something, especially defensively. My whole point is there’s no question he’s added a spark.”The Cowboys (6-5) are showing confidence and swagger reminiscent of two years ago, when quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott were rookie sensations leading a franchise-record 11-game winning streak. They’ll need it when New Orleans visits with a 10-win run Thursday.The Saints (10-1) will be trying to match exactly what Dallas did when Prescott was the 2016 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year and Elliott the league rushing champion: win 11 in a row after losing the opener. The Cowboys finished with an NFC-best 13 wins two years ago.“They say if you want to be a good team, you have to really start rolling in November,” said Cooper, who had a Dallas Thanksgiving record with 180 yards receiving with a 40-yard touchdown as well in a 31-23 win over the Redskins . “We’ve been standing tall with our backs against the wall. Hopefully we can keep this up.”There’s another connection to 2016 for the Cowboys. They intercepted Colt McCoy three times in the long-time Washington backup’s return to Texas coming off Alex Smith’s season-ending leg injury. Dallas’ last three-pick game was in the 12th win of that year, 26-20 over Tampa Bay.Anthony Brown had the first interception by a Cowboys cornerback this year in the first quarter; a deflection and catch by defensive end Lawrence set up Prescott’s scrambling 5-yard touchdown run for a 31-13 lead early in the fourth quarter; and safety Xavier Woods had his second of the season to all but seal the outcome.While the defence helped keep the Cowboys around .500 as the offence struggled through the first half of the season, takeaways were an issue with six through the first seven games. But Dallas has seven during a four-game run of forcing at least one turnover and was plus-3 against the Redskins after being minus-2 in a 20-17 loss in Washington, the last time the Cowboys didn’t have a takeaway.“It’s not a designed play to get takeaways,” said cornerback Chidobe Awuzie, who dropped a potential interception in the end zone and had the deflection that led to Woods’ pick . “It kind of just happens. Things happen like that when you’re in position to make plays.”And now the Cowboys are in position for the playoffs, with the daunting task of trying to keep their run going while slowing the roll of Drew Brees and the Saints.“The way we are going and the way we are progressing, especially over the last three games,” Prescott said, “we’re taking care of the ball, the defence is getting us many possessions even when we are punting it. So we are all just playing together.”NOTES: Jones said he expected LT Tyron Smith to play against the Saints after the five-time Pro Bowler was active but didn’t play against the Redskins. Smith said he sustained a stinger in a win at Atlanta four days earlier. … Elliott finished with 121 yards rushing and overtook Todd Gurley for the NFL lead with 1,074 yards. Gurley, who is in his open week with the LA Rams, had 1,043 yards.___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFLSchuyler Dixon, The Associated Press read more

Trojan Horse school governors son was killed fighting with Isil

first_imgThey just ruined him. They lured him into something he knew little about. He didn’t have any understanding or comprehension about what he was walking intoNicola Benyahia Rasheed Mrs Benyahia, 46, a British convert to Islam, has recently set up a support group to reverse the process of radicalisation, working with experts to identify “triggers” in vulnerable young people.But she believes that the Trojan Horse affair could have been used as one of the triggers to the radicalisation of her son, Rasheed.The teenager, an enthusiast for the acrobatic craze free-running, disappeared in May last year and travelled to the so-called Islamic State where he was killed six months later in a Coalition drone strike.In an extensive interview with the BBC she offers a rare glimpse into the experiences of families of those who have travelled to join Jihadist networks, Mrs Benyahia describes how the teenager gradually changed during the course of 2014. Park View School, the academy at the centre of the ‘Trojan Horse’ claimsCredit:PA Park View But around New Year 2015, Rasheed, who had been doing an apprenticeship in electrical engineering, presented her with a diamond necklace, for which he had saved up, with a note reading: “Mama – no matter how much gold and how many precious stones are used, it’s never enough to show how precious you are to me.”She now believes this marks the point at which he had made up his mind to travel to Syria.“I think that was his goodbye present to me,” she said.“At that point he had made the decision to go – and that was his way of saying so.“I think that was how he was saying goodbye to me.“That calm, I now know, is one of the tactics that the recruiters deploy.“They tell their recruits to avoid tension, to be placid, to not bring attention to himself and just go along with what his parents wanted.“He was over decision time and into preparation mode.” A former governor of a group of schools at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” affair has spoken of how her 19-year-old son was radicalised by Islamic extremists and eventually died fighting with Isil in Syria.Nicola Benyahia was among a group of board members from the Park View Educational Trust in Birmingham who stood down in July 2014 at the height of the uproar into allegations that hard-line Muslim groups had attempted to infiltrate schools in the city.An official review by the former Scotland Yard counter-terrorism chief Peter Clarke concluded there was “disturbing” evidence of attempts to take control of schools to spread an ultra-conservative brand of Islam, leaving children “vulnerable” to radicalisation. She said that despite concerns about what was happening she had hoped to stick it out as a governor because she wanted a progressive Muslim female voice to be heard on the board.But she fears the case might have been used by extremists to turn him against Britain.“I could see a great man that he was going to become and it was just taken away in the last year of his life,” she said.“They just ruined him.“They lured him into something he knew little about.“He didn’t have any understanding or comprehension about what he was walking into.“His softer nature and that vulnerability in him was manipulated [by saying] ‘Oh this is the Caliphate, this is what you must do, if you don’t do this, if you don’t do this journey then you’re not a believer, you’re not a Muslim, you’re not a good Muslim’.“That would have got to him more than anything.”  She recounted how he became increasingly preoccupied and angry about events in the Muslim world, especially Syria, during the course of 2014 and was particularly animated by news of the establishment of a so-called Islamic State. Nicola Rasheed Benyahia in SyriaCredit:News Scan Mrs Benyahia, a care manager and counsellor, details how, with hindsight, changes in her son’s mood and outlook chart a process similar to grooming by a group of people she believes he met after joining late night Islamic study circles in the city.She singles out two elements in their family life at the time which she believes may have made him more vulnerable to extremists: a rocky patch in his parents’ marriage and her own experience in being caught up in the Trojan Horse affair.

Buckfast makers hit out at copycat Easter eggs as they warn children

first_imgThe makers of Buckfast have hit out at an Easter egg sold with a bottle of the tonic wine in the box as they warn children may drink the alcohol.The firm behind the controversial drink are taking action to have the chocolate treats removed from shelves.  The Buckfast chocolate eggs, which come with a miniature bottle of the tonic wine and a lighter, are being sold by Northern Irish company d-Bees Offsales.They report 2000 orders coming in from all over the UK, America and Australia. However, J Chandler & Co, who bottle and distribute the wine which is made by Benedictine monks in Devon, have distanced themselves from the product.They said they were concerned the chocolate treats could attract children and called on consumers to boycott them.Stewart Wilson, sales manager of J Chandler & Co, who bottle and distribute the wine, said: “The Easter eggs that are currently being advertised for sale in Northern Ireland and elsewhere in the UK have not been authorised or instigated by our company.”We strongly advise the public not to purchase them. “As an alcoholic drinks manufacturer we take our responsibilities very seriously.”Our products are for adults and we do not engage in any activity that promotes our products, either directly or indirectly, to children and young people.”We do not manufacture or advertise any confectionery items.”Customers are advised not to purchase these Easter eggs and we are taking the necessary action to have the products removed to ensure the protection of the public.” d-Bees, who are based in Lurgan, County Armargh, has attracted interest in the past after creating a Christmas Buckfast hamper and a Valentine’s collection of the drink.But it appears to be the Easter package, which costs £9.99, which has drawn the most support from the beverage’s loyal following.Derek Brennan, who owns the shop, said: “The website crashed due to interest. We currently have 2,000 orders.”Last year Fife-based firm Chillilicious, who run Scotland’s only chilli farm, sold Buckfast Easter eggs and sold out within a few days.The Church of Scotland criticised SNP MP Roger Mullin, who endorsed the eggs on social media. Buckfast has been repeatedly blamed for fuelling drunken violence and anti-social behaviour in Scotland.The drink has an alcohol content of 15% and the caffeine equivalent of about four coffees per 75cl bottle.In 2015, the Scottish Prison Service found 43.4% of inmates had consumed Buckfast before their last offence despite it accounting for less than 1% of total alcohol sales nationally.But J Chandler insist most customers drink it responsibly and have accused politicians and police of unfairly singling them out.d-Bees have not responded to requests for comment.

Take a moment and enjoy this awesome NYC timelapse

first_imgTake a minute and relax, you’ve earned it. Lean back, turn up volume, and prepared to be wowed by this excellent time-lapse. It was shot in a number of recognizable spots around NYC, most of which are too hectic to enjoy when you are there but are strangely beautiful when displayed at high speed.While the time-lapse looks spectacular is does feel a bit like a tech demo. It was clearly shot with the intention of not only showing off NYC, but of working with a dolly (that’s why the camera is moving in every shot). Check out the video’s notes and you’ll see that it was in fact shot with a Dynamic Perception dolly kit.Using a dolly during a time-lapse is interesting because the amount the camera moves on the track has to be consistent and timed to be in keeping with the length of your video. So not only do you have an intervalometer timing your camera, but there is a motion controller that is controlling the dolly’s movement. They are all simple enough tools, but I’d wager it’s a lot to juggle when you have your rig positioned on a sidewalk in Manhattan.As for the rest of the hardware, it was shot with a Canon 5D MKII and a standard array of high-end glass: 14mm f/2.8L, 24mm f/1.4L, 50mm f/1.2L, 70-200 f/2.8L.via Mindreliclast_img read more

Google se lance dans le multicompte

first_imgGoogle se lance dans le multicompteÉtats-Unis – La firme de Mountain View serait en train d’autoriser progressivement le multicompte sur différents services, à commencer par Gmail.Si l’activation de cette fonction n’est pas encore effective dans le monde entier, ni officiellement mise en place, il semblerait que Google se lance enfin dans le multicompte, ce qui devrait ravir ses usagers disposant par exemple de plusieurs adresses électroniques sur Gmail. Ces derniers pourront ainsi, à partir du même navigateur internet, se connecter par exemple sur leurs boîtes aux lettres personnelle et professionnelle en même temps, en passant par l’option “connexions multiples”.Cette dernière pourrait également se trouver sur les services suivants : Google Calendar, Google Code, Google Sites, App Engine, Google Reader et Google Voice. Cette nouvelle application permettra non seulement de consulter plusieurs comptes sans pour autant être obligé de déconnecter le précédent, mais cela diminuera également le nombre de fenêtres ouvertes.

Subhash Chandras personal guarantee saves Zee from default

first_imgZee Entertainment’s creditors hope that a personal guarantee that they have obtained from group chairman Subhash Chandra will ensure the smooth implementation of a share sale programme to recover the dues.The lenders sought Subhash Chandra’s “irrevocable and unconditional” personal guarantee after a hard bargain to prevent the media company’s default, according to media reports.Reports about the deal buoyed Zee shares on the stock market on Tuesday, February 5. On National Stock Exchange (NSE), the share of Zee Entertainment that opened at Rs 343 rose by Rs 16.90 or 4.86 percent to close at Rs 365.35. The share has come off its 52-week low of Rs 288.30 that it hit on January 25.The agreement gives a committee of lenders (CoL) more powers and greater control over the developments in the company as the Zee group owes Rs 13,500 crore to the lenders. The debt is secured by the shares of listed firms including Zee Entertainment and Dish TV.A Zee statement said: “As communicated through our official statement issued on February 3, the lenders have agreed that there will not be any event of default declared, due to the movement in the stock price of Essel Group’s listed corporate entities, giving Essel Group the required level of time to complete the strategic sale process of its key assets without any compromise on the value. Any additional terms pertaining to the agreement cannot be shared since we are bound by a confidentiality agreement.”The agreement prevents Zee from offloading the pledged shares despite a huge slide in the prices of the securities towards the end of last month.The agreement terms give the lenders a greater say, upside benefit from the proposed strategic sale, more cover and personal guarantee, a report in the Business Standard says.The stock market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) has been informed of the deal by the Association of Mutual Funds in India (Amfi) that represents the country’s mutual fund industry.Mutual fund companies like Aditya Birla Sun Life, HDFC, Franklin Templeton, and ICICI Prudential are the major lenders of Zee.Sebi has instructed the creditors to ensure that the interests of the investors in the mutual funds are kept in mind.A sharp drop in Zee group shares on January 25 had put the lenders in a spot.”Invoking and liquidation of pledged shares would have caused the shares to tumble further. At the same time, holding on to the shares would have raised the risk of default. The formal agreement with Zee gives us more control. We are hopeful that they will be able to conduct a strategic sale at fair value,” a report quotes a mutual fund official as saying.Zee will have to enter into a definitive agreement for the proposed sale before July 31 and completed the transaction before September 30. Zee will set up an escrow account for the transaction which the lenders will oversee to ensure the sale proceeds are properly utilized.last_img read more

RussiaUS relations have worsened under Trump Putin

first_imgRussian President Vladimir Putin leads a meeting with members of the government on April 12, 2017 in Moscow. Photo: AFP President Vladimir Putin said ties between Russia and the United States appear to have deteriorated under Donald Trump in an interview released Wednesday as the countries’ top diplomats met in Moscow.“You can say that the level of trust on a working level, especially on the military side, has not improved but most likely worsened,” Putin said in a transcript from an interview with Mir television posted by the Kremlin.The comments came out as US secretary of state Rex Tillerson and Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov held tense talks following an alleged Syrian chemical attack and subsequent missile strike by Washington.Moscow and Washington are trying to figure each other out during the first visit by a senior member of Donald Trump’s administration to Russia.The US has blamed Moscow’s ally and Syrian president Bashar al-Assad of the deadly attack that killed scores of civilians and launched missile strikes against one of the regime’s airbases in retribution.Putin has angrily rejected the accusations against Damascus and slammed the US bombing as “a violation of international law”.Despite hopes of an improvement in Russia-US ties under Trump, the Tillerson-Lavrov talks look set to be dominated by the split over Syria—where more than 320,000 people have died in six years of war.Washington has said it is hoping to pry Russia away from its support for Assad, but the Kremlin on Wednesday decried any calls to drop the Syrian leader as “pretty absurd”.Prior to Tillerson’s arrival, hopes in Moscow had already dimmed that Trump would make good on his pledge to improve ties with Russia, as relations with the Kremlin have become politically toxic on the back of claims that Putin conspired to get Trump elected.last_img read more
