Donald Trump Executive Order to Impose Sanctions on the Office of the Supreme Leader of Iran

Today, the White House issued an Executive Order sanctioning the Supreme Leader's Office and authorizing further sanctions on those associated with it. This action was taken as part of the Administration's maximum pressure campaign against the Iranian regime, which has engaged in 40 years of terror and aggression against the United States and our allies. Most recently, it targeted a U.S. unmanned aircraft and executed attacks on international shipping. The Supreme Leader's Office has enriched (...)

US Treasury Targets Senior IRGC Commanders Behind Iran’s Destructive and Destabilizing Activities

The U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) took action today against eight senior commanders of Navy, Aerospace, and Ground Forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC). These commanders sit atop a bureaucracy that supervises the IRGC's malicious regional activities, including its provocative ballistic missile program, harassment and sabotage of commercial vessels in international waters, and its destabilizing presence in Syria.

Washington’s wager concerning Iran, by Thierry Meyssan

Even more than Syria, Iran is now at the heart of the confrontation between East and West. The astounded public is witnessing Washington's daily about-turns in what seems – mistakenly - to be an escalation towards war between the two countries. But this is not what it is about. Fortunately, the two Great Powers have demonstrated for the last 75 years that they are reasonable, and have always managed to stand down before they arrive at the point of mutual destruction.

Russian Commentary on JIT Inquest on MH-17 Disaster

The statements made by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) at a news conference on June 19 about the alleged involvement of Russian servicemen in the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 crash were utterly regrettable. The Russian Federation once again finds itself the target of completely unfounded accusations intended to discredit it in the eyes of the international community. As was the case at its previous news conferences, the JIT did not produce a single shred of concrete evidence to back up (...)

We have received nearly 400,000 text and MMS messages. However, this year the people are very actively using the website moskva-putinu.ru (...)

US Statement on Iranian Disinformation

Iran's leaders know the truth is a dangerous thing. It is important to correct the record. First, President Trump did not pass a message through Oman calling for talks with Iran. We have made our position abundantly clear. We are willing to engage when the time is right. It's telling that the Iranian regime rejected the recent, historic diplomacy of Japanese Prime Minister Abe, attacked a Japanese tanker in the Gulf of Oman, and shot down a U.S. aircraft operating in international airspace.
