Spanish Senate reviews crimes of Franco era

The Senate’s hearings should provide an opportunity to talk publicly about the crimes of the past years. It will also recall that thousands of pending and unsettled suits of such cases have not yet been recognized by Spanish courts. Currently, many Spaniards who survived abduction wish to meet their biological parents to find their families.

The participants of the hearings said that the victims of the crimes of the Franco regime and the Catholic Church, which lasted for decades, are still not legally protected. According to Spanish laws, every citizen has the right to know about his or her origin. However, de facto this constitutional right is not secured at present.

State Duma Deputy: Militants are trained in Ukraine to go to Syria

“The Ukrainian elites decided to reshuffle information by accusing Russia of having links with ISIL (organization banned in Russia). Thus they are trying to send a false message to the international community in order to prevent any commissions from finding ISIL’s (organization banned in Russia) recruiting centers on the territories under Kiev’s control, in particular, in the Kherson region. We have supportive operational information but not ‘facts and proof’ made up on a wave of an anti-Russian delirium,” Baalbek said.

According to Ruslan Baalbek, the training camps in Ukraine are used to provide militants, who are then sent to Syria, with basic training. These camps gather radicals from all over the world, including members of the Turkish “Grey Wolves” (Turkish: Bozkurtlar) nationalist organization.

“Without support, even if tacit, provided by the Kiev elites, no camps could ever exist in the Kherson region,” Ruslan Baalbek noted.
