  • [01] Under the Microscope of Antiterrorism Body


    In a multi-page proclamation sent to "To Pontiki" newspaper, the "Revolutionary Struggle" organization claims responsibility for attacks against Riot Police squad in Exarheia, where young policeman Diamantis Mantzounis was injured, Riot Police bus on December, 23, in Goudi as well as an unsuccessful bomb attack against an oil company in Faliro.

    The Eharheia attack was the response to 15 yo Alexandros Grigoropoulos death says the proclamation. The Anti-terrorism Body is already examining the proclamation of the Revolutionary Struggle organization.

    Use of violence is condemnable whatever its source is said government spokesman, Evangelos Antonaros. "There is no excuse and I will not waste any time on texts by some who want to justify the use of violence" said Mr. Antonaros.

    [02] Gas Talks Fall Flat

    The gas talks held Saturday between Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and his Ukrainian counterpart Yulia Tymoshenko fell flat. The key disputes between the two nations seem insurmountable, since Kiev remains divided into two camps, the pro-Russian one led by Yulia Tymoshenko and the pro-western one headed by President Viktor Yushchenko, who has been accused by the Kremlin of torpedoing every effort towards a deal that could put an end to the crisis. Russian President Dmitri Medvedev blamed the failure of the talks on Ukraine.

    At a press conference, Medvedev said that Kiev could not take to pay the EU price of the natural gas, arguing that the more Ukraine delayed the kickoff of the negotiations the more strained their relationship grew.

    It was the last chance. Putin and Tymoshenko looked for the golden medium that would allow the resumption of Russian gas shipments in 17 days' time. What matters now is whether the meeting between the two heads of state could yield any results, at a time when Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko is up at arms with his Prime Minister. He has blamed her for not serving Ukraine's interests. The meeting in Moscow occurred at a time when the European Union made it clear that it had exhausted its patience, thus pushing for an end to the worst energy impasse Europe has plunged into.

    The list with the EU reps that joined the Moscow talks was not released by the Kremlin. Earlier, Croatia had said that its government's vice-president could not go to Moscow.

    The European Union's stance on the gas row did not contribute to the efforts made for a solution, said a spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
