Ukrainian Opposition Unveiled Masonic Conspiracy

Ukrainian opposition is to make a sensational exposure. As leader of Ukraine-s Social Party Alexander Moroz says, about 300 high-ranking officials in Ukraine are members of a Masonic lodge which representative office is located somewhere abroad. These are Ukraine-s prosecutor general, chief of the Ukrainian security service, the minister of defense, the first president of Ukraine and parliament deputies. As LIGA online informs, Alexander Moroz says it is abnormal that ?Ukraine-s prosecutor general is at the same time a chevalier.

The Socialist leader says that people belonging to a Masonic lodge cannot hold key governmental posts.

The matter concerns the Order of Saint Stanislav into which representatives of Ukrainian elite and high-ranking officials are actively dubbed. The initiation ceremony of some politicians (for instance, initiation of Ukraine-s first president Leonid Kravchuk) was photographed, and the pictures were later published in a book. The opposition presented the book as the evidence of the Masonic order-s existence. Former Vice-premier of Ukraine Julia Timoshenko says ?charters of such organizations are frequently esteemed more than the Constitution and legislation of Ukraine.

Ukraine-s Ex-president and leader of the parliamentary social democratic faction Leonid Kravchuk says that accusation of his belonging to masonry are ?bluff and lie. However, he admits that he has been member of the Order of Saint Stanislav since 1999; the organization has its priory in Ukraine. But Leonid Kravchuk doesn-t consider the organization Masonic; agency Ukrainian News quoted the ex-president as saying that the order ?is a positive organization.

Indeed, declarations published on the official website of the Order of Saint Stanislav are positive: ?strengthening of mutual understanding between nations, consolidation of the ideals of humanism, virtue, human rights and freedoms protection. In a word, even if the Order is not a Masonic lodge, its Charter resembles that one of Masons very much, the latter are also known as humanists. The above mentioned objectives must be achieved by some chevaliers of the Order, majority of which are elite of the society.

It is known that a priory of the Order was opened in Ukraine in 1999, about 300 people were dubbed into the society.

Ex-president Leonid Kravchuk says that many political figures of Ukraine and businessmen donating for charity are members of the organization.

Ron Dittemore Is Sure It Was Something Different
The loss of a thermal protection tile couldn-t cause catastrophe of the shuttle. Something different occurred on Columbia-s board. What could it be?
Today George W. Bush and his wife Laura Bush will participate in a ceremony dedicated to memory of perished Columbia astronauts. The ceremony will start at 9:00 p.m. Moscow time and will be broadcast by all central American TV channels. The event is to take place at NASA-s Lincoln Space Center in Houston, right at the place where an analogous ceremony was held in 1986 when Challenger shuttle exploded at a take-off. The president and his wife will meet with families of the perished astronauts. Yesterday, NASA shuttle program manager Ron Dittemore held a press-conference at the NASA Mission Control. As Russia-s news agency RIA Novosti reports, Dittemore said that ?it couldn-t be because of the loss of a thermal protection tile that temperature on board the shuttle suddenly rose before the catastrophe

The Greatest Battle of World War II Took Place 60 Years Ago

I have never been a solider, I have never even been to a recruiting department. What do I have in common with all of that? What do we have to do about it? We are like the extras of this real stupidity. What the hell is that heroic death about? I have died dozens of times on stage, but it was only a performance! There is a huge difference between the death on stage and the real death! Death is supposed to be heroic, it is supposed to evoke enthusiastic feelings. People should know that they die for a great idea, but how does it look here? They just kick off here, die of hunger and cold, this is a biological fact. People fall here like flies, and no one even looks at those dead bodies, it does not occur to anyone that they should be buried. They are lying everywhere with no heads, no arms, no legs. I do not want to take part in all of that. I feel no happiness, when I think that I will decay in this mass grave

Colin Powell Lost ?Smoking Gun
A spokesman for the US intelligence said after listening to taped negotiations between Iraqi generals that the USA has got everything that is required to scare Baghdad
A spokesman for the Iraqi government coordinating cooperation with UN weapons inspectors says Baghdad is sure that Washington is trying to fabricate evidence of Iraq-s having weapons of mass destruction. In his interview to BBC General Hosam Mohammed Amin said that US Secretary of State Colin Powell would present the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday with forged evidence demonstrating Iraq-s having weapons, at that he would say that the pictures were taken from the space or from some spy planes. Americans are at the same time perfectly sure that documents that Colin Powell is to present the UN Security Council on Wednesday are sensational

Foreigners Are Causes of All Troubles
Saudi Arabia to begin deportation of foreign workers
Those who planned to go to Saudi Arabia in search of a job will have to change the intentions. The Saudi Government is very much anxious about the increasing number of foreign workers in the country, that is why it is decided to reduce the number of foreigners living there by 10%. Unemployment level in the kingdom is currently high enough and makes up 9%. The Saudi authorities hope that when the number of foreigners working in the country is reduced, citizens of the country will get more work places. What is more, if official calculations are taken into consideration, the government plans to create an artificial manpower deficit. Isn-t the logic familiar to you?

Columbia Tragedy: All Versions of Catastrophe Possible
There is practically no hope that airborne recorders of the shuttle will be decoded
Investigation of Columbia disaster is posing more and more questions. For instance, some amateur astronomer managed to take a picture of a strange phenomenon when the shuttle tragically fell down; the pictures clearly depict a bright orange flash resembling an electric discharge. Specialists cannot say so far what the flash could be. San Francisco Chronicle published an article on this problem today. Meanwhile, as Russia-s Vesti.Ru informs, a preliminary version of the tragedy suggested by NASA specialists proves to be true: the tragedy occurred because of failure of special thermal tiles that protect the shuttle from burning up during re-entry. Computerized data from the shuttle and analysis of its debris prove the version

Ilya Glazunov: Genocide Against Russian People in Full Swing
There is another thing to learn from Americans: national interests come first
More than 25 million Russian people are the citizens of the second kind in former neighborly republics. However, those people assisted a lot in the prosperity of those former Soviet republics. Russian people are not allowed to speak Russian in the Baltic republics. Our culture and history counts a thousand years, but our politicians keep using the words of foreign origin in their daily speech. Who gave them a right to ruin the Great Russian Language? Another thing: why do we have to be a member of the European Union? Terrorism and the struggle with it are not supposed to become the reason of another kind of global terror
