That makes sense. It is good that almost all the young in Ukraine know now how to handle weapons, in case Putin decides to occupy further areas of Europe. Like Hitler did in '38.

http://podrobnosti.ua/2054887-uspenie-presvjatoj-bogoroditsy-2015-chto-delat-na-prazdnik.html
On Friday, the Orthodox celebrate the Dormition. On this day, people in the old days did not work, and celebrated the end of the harvest.
Assumption also coincides with the end of two weeks of strict fasting. Therefore, the peasants organized themselves a real feast: boiled with beer and mead, sacrificed sheep and baked pies.
On Assumption people go to church to sanctify and seeds and stalks of different breads. Thus it marked the end of the harvest of grain.
On the eve of the last sheaf gathered from the fields is stored in the house and even put on a sundress. "Obzhinok" so called the sheaf had to be stored in the house under the icons and bring good luck.

Интервью Джонни О'Райлли и Олега Долина с Lifenews.ru
Interview with Johnny O'Reilly with Lifenews - O'reilly started out as a... journalist in Moscow. Lived there now 12 years.
His sin - he mentioned Sentsov in his interview, and that he was in jail for "political" reasons.
15 minute interview cut down to just one question. !
note the abrupt end. The lady interviewer looks a bit shocked at first.
Clearly instructions from above to stop the interview.
Russia today.
Video - can't find on youtube yet... but here - and yes, he studied Russian at uni in Dublin.

Yes - dollars. Also read elsewhere that the police found lots of pro-Russian things in his office. Traitor.
Lots of dodgy characters in Odessa. Send this one to Yanukovich.

No wonder the Odessa police were colluding with the Yanukovich bandits during Maidan.

Moscow historian Arkady Popov demolishes Putin’s “Ukraine is not a state” lie

Post by Admin on Fri Aug 28, 2015 10:56 am

The current Kremlin leader condemns the early Bolsheviks for including “significant territories” of Russia inside Ukraine, saying they didn’t take into account “the national composition of the residents.” But he doesn’t speak about the fact that the Bolsheviks “included in the RSFSR enormous territories of the North Caucasus and Turkestan which were predominantly non-Russian and had declared their independence.”

The Kremlin’s insistence that it has the right to take pieces of Ukraine because “Ukraine has no territorial integrity because it is not a real state” is the fifth myth of “Krymnashism,” one that has deep roots but that is even more absurd than the others, according to Moscow historian Arkady Popov.

As he has done with the first four of the eight “Krymnash” myths (For his earlier articles, see windowoneurasia2.blogspot.com/2015/07/none-of-eight-myths-in-putins-crimea-is.html, windowoneurasia2.blogspot.com/2015/08/moscows-claims-of-historic-right-to.html, windowoneurasia2.blogspot.com/2015/08/popov-demolishes-third-krymnash-myth.html and windowoneurasia2.blogspot.com/2015/08/fourth-putin-myth-about-crimean.html), Popov demolishes this one in “Yezhednevny zhurnal” (ej.ru/?a=note&id=28467).

Everyone should have seen this myth coming, Popov says, because as early as 2008, Putin told US President George W. bush that “Ukraine is not even a state! What is Ukraine? Part of its territory is Eastern Europe and part, and a quite significant part, was given to it by us.” That view was then repeated by Russian politicians and diplomats to others.

In 2014, Putin expanded on the notion that Russia had given territory to Ukraine by saying that the Bolsheviks had given Ukraine “significant territories of the historic south of Russia” and that in 1954, Khrushchev had given Ukraine Crimea. Moreover, Moscow had cut off territory from Poland and Hungary and given it to Ukraine as well.

It is “unfortunate,” the Moscow historian continues, that the Kremlin leader didn’t talk about Kaliningrad or Vyborg or Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk or Tuva or even Karelia. Had he, he might have been forced to conclude that according to his own arguments, the Russian Federation is “not a state” either.

Popov points out that “it is impossible to find any principled differences in the means of forming the present-day Russian Federation and present-day Ukraine: Both countries were created by means of the sovereignization of union republics, the RSFSR and the UkSSR which after the 1917 revolution were formed from the remnants of the Russian empire.”

The current Kremlin leader condemns the early Bolsheviks for including “significant territories” of Russia inside Ukraine, saying they didn’t take into account “the national composition of the residents.” But he doesn’t speak about the fact that the Bolsheviks “included in the RSFSR enormous territories of the North Caucasus and Turkestan which were predominantly non-Russian and had declared their independence.”..................

Ukraine not to be federalized through decentralization – Poroshenko

Post by Admin on Fri Aug 28, 2015 11:13 am

"There will be neither federalization nor any status. This is what we will be voting for at the parliament on Monday [August 31] and this is how we will expose these lies and will protect the unitary status of Ukraine," the president said at a congress of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc, Solidarity and UDAR parties in Kyiv on Friday.

The proposed constitutional reform cancels Article 92 of the Ukrainian constitution regarding the status of Kyiv as the Ukrainian capital city and a number of other cities, Poroshenko said.

"Some have tried to take advantage of this situation. The Zaporizhia Council decided yesterday that they also needed the status and wanted to act under Article 92 of the constitution," he said.

According to media, the Zaporizhia Region Council backed at its session on August 27, the draft Ukrainian law On a Special Regime of the Enforcement of Ukrainian Legal Norms in Socioeconomic, Budget and Other Fields for Territories with Aggravated Environmental Conditions (the draft was supported by 66 out of 69 deputies present at the session).

The main task of the law is to expand the administrative and budget powers of local councils and to provide social support to people in the Zaporizhia region. The socioeconomic situation may be improved through the redistribution of taxes, which will leave more money to local budgets. The money will be invested in medical, ecological and educational projects and social protection..........

Ukraine fails to agree to scheme to finance Russian gas purchases with European Commission

Post by Admin on Fri Aug 28, 2015 11:17 am

The minister said that the scheme was not agreed to as representatives of banking institutions did not attend the meeting, the BBC has reported.

"We discussed several options, and taking into account the fact that banking institutions that provide cash and liquidity were not present at today's meeting, it was impossible to agree anything. We discussed several possible options where the European Commission would help us," Demchyshyn said after a meeting with Vice President of the European Commission for Energy Union Maros Sevcovic.

He said that Ukraine plans to accumulate 19 billion cubic meters of gas in its underground storage facilities by the beginning of the heating season.

Sevcovic expressed hope that the trilateral gas agreement between Russia, Ukraine and EU would be signed by late September...........
