Scotland will not be guided by London on independence issue – Scottish MP

Scotland will not be guided by London on independence issue – Scottish MP

The people of Scotland will not be "lectured" on the Scottish independence issue, Scottish National Party (SNP) Member of Parliament Angus Robertson has told RIA Novosti.

"To be lectured by them about timetables and for democratic processes is something that could only happen in Westminster,” Robertson said.

Scottish MPs should be barred from having any say on the UK's negotiations on a deal to set up an independent Scotland if there is a yes vote in the referendum, an influential Lords committee has stated.

The House of Lords constitution committee said Scotland's 59 MPs should be strictly limited to dealing with constituency issues and Scottish affairs immediately after a yes vote and then quit Westminster on the day Scotland declares independence.

But the committee, chaired by the former Labour minister Lady Jay, said that Scottish members of the Lords should still be allowed to sit in the upper chamber if they continued to pay UK taxes after independence, a recommendation denounced by the Scottish National party.

UK PM Cameron heads to Scotland to talk them out of independence

UK Prime Minister David Cameron is heading to Scotland for a two-day visit as polls show a steady rise in numbers supporting Scottish independence. The trip comes as Cameron and his colleagues are unhappy with the anti-independence campaign. The Prime Minister will campaign for a "No" vote in September's referendum, when Scots will be asked whether they to remain in the UK.

The "Better Together" campaign is being led by Labour MP Alistair Darling, the former Chancellor. But the Prime Minister is unhappy with his performance as he understands that nothing can stop the Scots from supporting their independence.

 UN-marked strike helicopter ‘used by Kiev against militia’ sparks scandal

The UN has voiced concerns over the apparent use of UN-marked helicopters by Kiev troops in their military operation against Donetsk regional militia. A video of a white-painted Mil Mi-24 strike helicopter with UN logo has emerged.

When inquired about the United Nations’ stance on the use of peacekeeper-marked military hardware in non-peacekeeper operations, the office for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s spokesperson said such use would violate UN rules.

“It is the responsibility of Troop Contributing Countries (TCCs) that provide Contingent Owned Equipment to peacekeeping missions to remove all logos and signage bearing the UN's name once such equipment has been repatriated to the home country or is no longer being used for official UN purposes,” the office told RT.

It added that UN-marked aircraft can be used for missions tasked by the UN and that UN’s Departments of Peacekeeping Operations and Field Support is in contact with the Ukrainian authorities to clarify the issue.

A video of a UN-marked Mil Mi-24 strike helicopter was published on Tuesday by LifeNews television. It said its correspondents covering Kiev’s military operation in the Donetsk Region took the video near Kramatorsk. LifeNews said at least three combat Mi-24 and one transport Mi-8 helicopters carrying UN colors were spotted in the area.

Russia said it “certainly” is interested in finding out more on the situation.

“We certainly want to understand how it happened that the UN logo – a UN-painted helicopter – was used against protesters in the east and the south. The United Nations has already expressed it very deep concern,” Russia’s Foreign Minister said in an interview with Bloomberg.

The Ukrainian Defense Ministry has denied the claims, saying that no UN-marked helicopters participated in its military operation in the southeast of the country. 

“The helicopters colored in white paint, which formerly took part in peacekeeping missions, are used. However, they only have emblems on them that confirm they belong to the armed forces of Ukraine,” the ministry’s press-service told Interfax-Ukraine.

The Ukrainian military has provided equipment for several UN peacekeeping missions, particularly in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Russian defense-industrial complex should produce all it needs in Russia – Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin has approved the policy of substituting imports for the defense-industrial complex with domestically manufactured products regardless of extra costs.

"We should do everything so that all that our defense-industrial complex needs be produced on our territory for us not to be dependent on anyone in any matter concerning the rearmament of our army and navy with new weapons," Putin said during a meeting at his Bocharov Ruchey residence in Sochi.

“I am sure this would benefit our industry,” he added.

The president called for adjusting the work of domestic research centers in line with the new objectives.

“We need to look at how work with research centers has been built, to work with the Academy of Sciences on a closer scale,” Putin said.

In the coming three days Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold a series of meetings dedicated to the defense procurement program.

"Six months ago we held a series of meetings dedicated to the implementation of the defense procurement plan. Having analyzed the situation, we looked at problems and agreed to get back to this issue again in six months," Putin said. "We have agreed on the unconditional implementation of defense procurement and efficient use of funds allocated for this," the president said. A total of 20 trillion rubles are allocated for these purposes and 3 trillion rubles for re-equipping defense industry complex companies, he said.

"New data related to the necessity of import substitution exists today," Putin said. The president said he asked the government to analyze the situation and calculate additional necessary resources related to the issue. "Small additional funds will be needed," Putin said. "But the process is right. Everything the defense industry complex needs should be produced on our territory. I am certain that this will do good for the industry itself," the president said.
