I was a CIA spy in Russia – and now my family is in danger. But Trump can help

I have always acted on the principle that the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

The United States may be an enemy of Russia, and I love my country very much. But I consider this Russian government to be the enemy of the Russian people.

Vladimir Putin and his cronies have plundered our country and are oppressing its people. Corruption and extortion is all around. Russians feel intimidated and fear repression by the state. We have a resource-rich country yet our people are poor.

So I decided to help the US as a friend.

Donald Trump confirms US will pull out of nuclear arms pact with Russia

The United States will withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty with Russia, President Donald Trump announced Saturday.

Trump justified the move by accusing Moscow of violating the 1987 nuclear arms pact, but refused to provide further details.

“[Russia] has been violating it for many years. I don’t know why President Obama didn’t negotiate or pull out,” the president said following a campaign stop in Elko, Nevada. “We’re not going to let them violate a nuclear agreement and go out and do weapons [while] we’re not allowed to. We are going to terminate the agreement and then we are going to develop the weapons.”

Russia Promises Advanced Missiles to Syria After Rift With Israel

MOSCOW — President Vladimir V. Putin said Monday that Russia would supply the Syrian military with a sophisticated air defense system, a move that reflects Russia’s increasing tensions with Israel and that could heighten the risks of the air war over Syria.

Israel, which has long opposed the weapons transfer, has carried out more than 200 strikes on Iranian-affiliated targets in Syria in the past two years as Russia, Syria’s main patron, has mostly looked the other way.

But relations between Russia and Israel have frayed since a Russian military plane was shot down over Syria a week ago, killing 15 Russian service members. The plane was accidentally shot down by Syria in response to an Israeli airstrike.
