The youngest son of U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, has been appointed head of legal affairs at Ukraine's largest private gas producer — a move he said would benefit Ukrainians and the country's economy.
In a statement published Monday on its website, Burisma Holdings announced Hunter Biden would join its board of directors and head the company's legal unit.
"As a new member of the board, I believe that my assistance in consulting the company on matters of transparency, corporate governance and responsibility, international expansion and other priorities will contribute to the economy and benefit the people of Ukraine," Hunter Biden said in the statement.
"Starting June 1, we will halt the work of those stations on Russian territory,” Rogozin said.
“Under this agreement there are 11 GPS stations on the territories of 10 [Russian federal] subjects,” he said.
The US relies on Russian-made RD-180 and NK-33 engines to launch military and civilian satellites into space, with NASA saying it’s unlikely to produce a fully operational rocket engine of its own before 2020.
“We currently project that we’ll require the ISS until 2020,” he said. “We need to understand how much profit we’re making by using the station, calculate all the expenses and depending on the results decide what to do next.”
Previously, the US space agency, NASA, had asked Russia’s Roscosmos to keep the ISS in orbit till 2024.
“We won’t be first to adopt sanctions, especially in the high-tech area. For us it is a matter of employment of our specialists,” he said.
Is this really such a big conspiracy and crime?

Yet another Clintonite has been wheeled out of the political morgue to serve in the Obama administration. Carol Browner, a neon-green radical who headed the Environmental Protection Agency from 1993-2000, is widely rumored to be the president-elect's choice for "energy czar." But an ethical cloud still hangs over Browner's EPA legacy. It doesn't take a team of Ivy League lawyers to figure out that this is one more headache the Hope and Change crew doesn't need.
In the spirit of reaching across the aisle, let me dust off the cobwebs and help out all the smarty-pants vetters on the Obama team with a little background on Browner's stained past:
On her last day in office, nearly eight years ago, Browner oversaw the destruction of agency computer files in brazen violation of a federal judge's order requiring the agency to preserve its records. This from a public official who bragged about her tenure: "One of the things I'm the proudest of at EPA is the work we've done to expand the public's right to know."
Incredibly, Browner asserted that there was no work-related material on her work computer

Biden is not doing anything different than Reid did with his son, setting him up with political and financial connections with top corporations in China.
The fruit doesn't fall far from the tree.
This should be made illegal...the selling out of American workers and companies.

Wow. They are so confident that all of us are blind that they flaunt it in front of us. I bet most people would say, oh what a good job he got....how lucky for him.
Don't be worried that billions of our tax dollars will be used to keep Ukraine on our side, one of our predominant citizens has a job there. Yup, I would definitely say conflict of interest. Even McCain has a big smile on his face.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not giving Russia a pass either, they injected themselves into this equally with the annexation of Crimea.. but Ukraine needs to be rid of both sides...
