NATO expands in Europe not to defend itself but to attack Russia, the leader of the Austrian EU-Austrittspartei (EU Exit Party), Robert Marschall told Sputnik on Friday.
“NATO expansion is very dangerous because the only goal for NATO to expand is to attack Russia, it has nothing to do with the defending tactics, it is one step closer to the new war in Europe,” Marschall said.
The European Union is not a sovereign bloc if foreign troops are present on its member-states’ territories, he added.
“Our position is that we want American soldiers out of Europe,” Marschall stressed.
NATO has boosted its presence in eastern Europe over the past year, accusing Moscow of fueling a conflict in eastern Ukraine.
Russia has repeatedly dismissed the allegations and stressed that military expansion toward Russian borders undermines regional security and escalates tensions.
Marschall also believes that Austria needs to stay politically and military neutral under its constitution, that is why the country wants to leave the European Union.
“Under the Austrian constitution, the country needs to remain politically and military neutral. The EU is part of NATO. The EU is a military union as well. We don’t want to be a part of the military union,” Marschall said.
Austrians do not want to be a part of conflicts that include the war in Ukraine or crises in Africa, he added. >> Read More

With various controversies involving top Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders coming to light, both the goods and services tax (GST) constitutional amendment Bill and the land acquisition Bill are unlikely to clear Parliament in the monsoon session.
Both Bills are with parliamentary committees. Members of the panels say increasingly, it seems the Congress will oppose both the pieces of legislation. Concerned about being seen as supporting the BJP, other opposition parties such as the Biju Janata Dal and the Trinamool Congress (TMC) are likely to side with the Congress.
A senior TMC leader told Business Standard in an environment in which clouds of controversy surrounded senior BJP members, it was unlikely that much would be done in the monsoon session of Parliament, beginning July 21.
Besides, what has ominous implications for the process of reforms is reasoned criticism is also becoming a basis for opposing the government’s moves. In an article in The Indian Express, former finance minister P Chidambaram had listed the Congress’s reservations about the BJP’s GST Bill: that a 28 per cent effective GST rate was too high and would hit the services sector; excluding petroleum from the GST would render it toothless; and the one per cent additional tax on inter-state sales was a “retrograde provision (that) negates the very character of GST (as) a destination-based tax”.
Opposition leaders say for the Congress, the land acquisition Bill and the fact that it dilutes the social impact analysis clauses is a political cause célèbre and the party will fight the Bill tooth and nail.
Speaking to Business Standard, Congress communications chief Randeep Surjewala didn’t mince his words. “The BJP’s obduracy and rigidity will definitely lead to obstruction in the smooth functioning of Parliament. Congress supports the GST but it can only be taken up when it is acceptable to states; after all, they are the main stakeholders. Also, it can be rolled out when the five conditions clearly stated by the Congress in public interest are accommodated. As for the land Bill, the BJP and the prime minister have to shed their obstinacy in helping corporates at the cost of farmers. In its present form, the land Bill is completely non-negotiable and unacceptable.” >> Read More

The poll, part of a series of indicators measuring satisfaction with various levels of state power, found that 89 percent of respondents generally approve of “the work of Vladimir Putin as the president of Russia,” with 10 percent generally disapproving, and 1 percent unable to answer. June’s rating is a percentage point higher than the previous high, reached last October, when the president’s approval rating jumped to 88 percent.
The Russian president’s approval rating jumped from the low- to mid-60s in 2013 to the 80s beginning in March 2014 over his handling of the crisis in Ukraine and the subsequent crisis in relations with Europe and the United States. Russians had previously gathered around their leader in September 2008, at the onset of the world financial crisis, at which time Putin was serving as prime minister, and similarly in 2000, when Putin took up the presidency from the ailing Boris Yeltsin, whose approval ratings had hovered between 5 to 10 percent throughout the late 1990s.
Putin’s approval rating remains 25 to 35 percentage points above those of other Russian government officials and organs, with 66 percent of those polled approving the work of Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev, 62 percent that of the Russian government, 54 percent that of the Russian Duma, and 64 percent the activities of the country’s governors.
Asked whether on the whole “Russia is moving in the right direction or in the wrong direction,” 64 percent of respondents answered “in the right direction,” with 22 percent answering “in the wrong direction,” and 14 percent finding it difficult to answer.
Polling was conducted between June 19-22, 2015, with 1,600 people 18 years or older from across 46 Russian regions taking part in the poll; Levada estimates a margin of error of no more than 3.4 percent.
