DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. February 15, 2017, 11:33 AM (IDT)

A Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson on Wednesday rejected a demand by US President Donald Trump that Russia withdraw from the Crimean Peninsula and return it to the Ukraine. Speaking at a weekly press briefing in Moscow, Maria Zakharova said “We won’t return our territories. Crimea is a territory of the Russian Federation.”  

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.

    Why is Trump doing this??? Has he been compromised or getting very bad advice??? Crimea belongs to Russia. People need to start tweeting Trump stating to leave Crimea alone.
