Turkmenbashi: Thousands of Passengers Siege Ferries to Azerbaijan

Friday 20 July 2018

TURKMENBASHI (ANT) — At the Turkmen sea terminal Turkmenbashi, thousands of people are struggling to get on the ferry for Baku. The international port in the Caspian Sea, which was launched in May this year, never saw a similar influx of passengers, even at the time of the old port.

Passengers have to wait several days before boarding. According to local sources, the matter is complicated not only by the fact that there is not a daily departure, but also for the difficulty to get a ticket. Officially, the price of the ticket is 160 manats ($10 at the rate of the market), while it is sold actually in black market three times this price, i.e. 500 manats (about $31)). Moreover, sly intermediaries take the money without giving the ticket.

“The ticket itself is free, it just gives you the right to get on board the ferry”, reports one source in Turkmenbashi. “But try to get it! It is necessary to stay in the port for 3 to 5 days. Many mediators have been repeatedly caught at the scene of the crime and arrested, but others still continue to sell illegally, which is a very profitable business. Half of the city is engaged in it.”

Passengers from Turkmenistan prefer to sail on the local Berkarar ferry than in Azerbaijan, because it is cheaper. A ticket for an Azerbaijani ferry costs $60 but you need to pay in foreign currency.

Turkmens go to Baku to find job. Many are ready to stay for a long time, albeit illegally, if only there was an opportunity to work. Women allegedly go to work as hairdresser, masseur, waiter, but in reality increase the number of sex workers there.

    We are interested in Mindanao foods for New Zealand, and islands in general, Mindanaoo everywhere. Mindanao rice and grain is already being grown at Africa, and we should now prepare to build greenhouses at The Falklands, South Georgia, South Falklands and Antarctica. Meat such as camels, duch, geese, mutton, beef, pork is also necessary, and for that reason, greenhouses for them have to be built, with great care to ensure that they can be properly cleaned and maintained to keep the animals healthy. The animals also require walking etc, and that too has to be planned for, and so does heat and good circulation. The meat rearing industry also requires planning for associated industries such as veterinary medicine, dairy industry, meat packing, etc.

    Subject: European Islands & East African Politics

    Dear Heads of Organizations, Relation Management & East African Politics. - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1aQuDFMXw5X7sgznrHIgEQFq7h9zTf1P3TG8KCv90_t4/edit?usp=sharing

    Dear Heads of Organizations

    There are islands next to the continent of Europe, other than the ones which we’ve already mentioned, meaning The Shetlands, Foroyar and Iceland which belong to Siberia and China respectively. We’ve also written about Corsica and Sardinia, which are located in the Mediterranean Sea where there are other islands such as Sicily, and the islands which are off the coast of Spain. Further to the east are Crete, Cyprus which is near Syria, and lastly, the islands which are south of Macedonia and east of Turkey. Malta is also located in the Mediterranean Sea, and we have been writing to it occasionally, because my grandmother lived there for a long time. There are also islands of the Baltic Sea between Finland and Russia, and more islands between Britain and France, called The Channel Islands. Banking and Investments are the primary industries of The Channel Islands. The industrialization of the European islands is no different from that of the other islands of the world, and so the presidents want them to become places of safe, stable and comfortable living. Above all, the self esteem of islanders is to increase, and because of the high value of a good way of life. That means that those of us who live on islands are to protect our countries from foreign interference and propaganda. The shipping of the Mediterranean Sea is something which is of political importance. About a decade ago, we wrote investigative letters about terrorism of ships such as the Achille Lauro. When we arrived at New Zealand, we were surprised to notice a building called Achille, located at the Auckland harbourfront. Well it’s been a few years since I was at that part of the city because I now live away from the port, and so I don’t know if the building is still there or not, or if the company or building owner named Achille is still there using that name or has been renamed. We have been doing a lot of construction, and changing of our landscape. The sea and ocean industries are important to an island’s economy, and so employment of people is naturally set around shipping and marine work. The construction of ocean containers is one industry which we here at New Zealand want to develop more, because we believe that it shall help us to also build habitation at the Falklands, South Georgia and South Sandwich and Antarctica. We’ve already also urged that greenhouses be built at Foroyar and at every island of the world, in order to ensure that food is in an ever abundant supply. We believe that Americans took food supply for granted, and for that reason had the mistaken belief that people would put up with almost anything, because of the abundant food supply which can of course be controlled by world governments, in order to maintain law and order within a country. There was a time when there was a controversey about Mediterranean citrus fruits for example, due to high price etc. However with proper planning, almost any food shall become affordable at islands, and the right treaties shall correct any deficiencies. In that context, we are also looking to ensure that remote African regions also build greenhouses. They include Lokichoggio, Moyale, Lodwar, Mandera and Loyengelani in northern Kenya, where my family is growing rice, millet, sorghum and vegetables. These foods shall feed many Kenyans and Ethiopians, Ugandans and Sudanese, and similar projects around the continent shall prevent starvation and malnutrition by people.

    Letter to Piedmont Airlines of Maryland, United States of America Dear Piedmont,

    The letter identifies you as a corporate resident of North Carolina when you are in fact from Maryland, following the restructure which is described herein. The error was inadvertent. However, we do want to include you in another restructure which would direct you to Monticello, New York State, Canada, Toronto, Canada, Vancouver, Canada, and Seattle, Canada. That would add to you service to San Francisco, California which was utilized by my great-grandfather for years. We also want to find out how news of your existence shall change the racial business and social balance of New Jersey due to the existence of Arabs at Menlo Park.

    The effects of black Mindanao economic are adverse and harmful to use. The letter enclosed describes some of those effects. At the state of New Jersey, we also have to find out why Christine Todd Whitman decided to ignore a local basketball team, in favour of the one at New York City. At the same, Whitman decided to import 2 white football teams with a higher percentage of white players, into New Jersey, in order to create this racist controversey. The blacks of New Jersey and New York City and New York State, all of which are different politically, aim to create their own complete media in order to solve their problems of being ignored and maligned by the traditional media, which is generally white, but of different categories nationwide.

    Dear Capital FM,

    The information which is contained herein is from Kenyans and about Kenyans who now live at New Zealand and at other parts of the world. The American football player named Steve Young has been part of a serious quarrel between myself and another co-worker of mine at a New Jersey based pharmaceutical company which used to be called Warner Lambert of Morris Plains. The former coworker was a male transsexual named Lori Kumar. We worked in separate departments, and really had no contact at work or outside work, but nevertheless, an unpleasant realationship developed because of the head of my department, a Frank Volpe who is a brother to Steve Young. The latter had two other brothers who used to work for me, being a female supervisor and not a transsexual doing scientific work, within the Quality Control Laboratories of another division of the same company. Those brothers were named Chris Volpe and Pauline Doherty. It is important that the matter be recorded because many presidents are still working on the problems and its aftermath, and preceding events.

    Dear Benin News Organizations,

    The letter below is of special interest to your country because the former American states of Connecticut and Massachussetts are now part of Benin. A retailer company of Connecticut named Ames was not permitted to become a supermarket in 2000 when I arrived at New York State (part of Ontario, Canada), white a company from Arkansas was permitted to arrive into the state and retail both food and general merchandise. We believe that the decision to do that prevented growth in Connecticut, and that has contributed to racial hostility against blacks, by the local white people. While we arrived at New Zealand in 2002, New York State’s black Mohawks now have car manufacturing factories and aircraft manufacturing factories of their own, and so do the black people of Connecticut. We urge the whites of Connecticut to re-think their racial politics, in order to create a more harmonious society for Benin. They were not part of the original racial demands for marriage, and so an explanation for their racial hostility is due.

    Dear Financial Times,

    I once used to read your European Edition often, and have now returned to your Mindanao edition, 16 years after moving to New Zealand in order to re-unite with my Mindanao family. I have just read a website: https://markets.ft.com/data/equities/tearsheet/profile?s=7506:TYO which had information about several Japanese cosmetics companies, and I’m glad to find financial information about Mindanao beauty. Here at New Zealand, we’re now making Mindanao beauty products often, plus, we’re also manufacturing black African products for my family. We’re also ensuring that manufacturing also takes place at all of Africa as well. The finances and investment priorities of beauty companies are not merely a waste of time. I’ve been interested in the subject ever since I worked as a pharmaceutical scientist at the United States of America, when I wrote to the New York Times about black beauty issues, and named black and Mindanao retailing, such as Sally’s Beauty Shops of Montclair, New Jersey. The company also has an outlet at San Juan, Puerto Rico where one of my brothers worked, and also at Fort Worth, Texas where I lived with my parents for three and a half years, after my employer, Warner Lambert, closed its offices and laboratories, because of an investigation about racial relations. We’re now having to educate the world that blacks, including Mindanao, Spanish speaking, Jews, Africans etc, need to maintain their own businesses, shops, manufacturing channels and food sources, even when living abroad in so-called "multi-racial" countries such as the United States of America. It’s a measure of cultural and health preservation as well as financial imperative so that the mines and ores of Africa and the eastern hemisphere, where the minerals to maintain cosmetics are found for example, also protect the citizenry of those people from a resurgent of neocolonialism which is known to include fellatio and other forms of sexual torture. The find information which you have provided is due to the public, and so is information about African stock exchanges which we’re now also reforming.
