News -
Reading that Putin attacked 74 times yesterday, including another attack in the Mariupol area.
Clearly now the order has been given to press in the Mariupol direction. Putin is now running out of time, and wants his land corridor to occupied Crimea.
Update - Sadly 2 Ukrainian soldiers died yesterday, and 3 injured in the war against Russia.

Weather -
Warm. High near 30 today, and similar for the next week. Although forecasts differ considerably - whether it will be 26 or 33 today.
The smell of burning is in the air each morning - presumably from the fields being burnt after the crops are harvested.

Football -
Europa League. Dneprepetrovsk were drawn in a group with Lazio. Other Ukrainian teams failed to qualify.

Tim Ash: “IMF board sign off, if the deal gets political backing in Ukraine, seems assured at this point.”

With U.S. Treasury Jacob J. Lew welcoming the debt-restructuring deal between Ukraine and its creditors – echoed by the IMF and the EU –Nomura Int’l’s Timothy Ash offered the following comments yesterday:

We have now had the “Troika” of Western officials – Lew, Lagarde and Juncker all coming out backing the debt deal – glowing FT comment in support also, so guess concerns over the EFF criteria of “meeting debt sustainability” with a “high probability” being met/or otherwise still are being quietly put in the bottom draw for the time-being. The IMF, and other Western official backers, are clearly eager for this deal to be done – to wrap Ukraine in that USD40bn Western financial support package (USD25bn official plus USD15bn from the private sector. Lingering concerns still over debt sustainability will be put on the back burner again – does a 4.3% of GDP debt reduction make that much difference, as the debt/GDP ratio is till around 90%? IMF board sign off, if the deal gets political backing in Ukraine, seems assured at this point......................

The French Presidency says France, Germany, and Russia back plans for a complete cease-fire in eastern Ukraine from next week.

Fighting between Ukrainian forces and Russian-backed separatists has killed more than 6,400 people since March 2014.

A cease-fire agreement reached in Minsk in February has been regularly violated.

But on August 26, representatives from Kyiv and the rebels agreed to strive for an end to all truce violations from September 1 -- the day the new school year is to begin.

After the leaders of France, Germany, and Russia spoke by telephone on August 29, French President Francois Hollande's office said the three “strongly backed” the call for a complete truce from September 1.

It said Hollande also agreed with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Russian President Vladimir Putin that it would be useful to hold a summit with Ukraine's Petro Poroshenko “in the coming weeks.”

According to the Kremlin, Putin expressed his concern over the "continual bombardment of towns” by the Ukrainian Army and “the concentration of Ukrainian armed forces all along the demarcation line."

Putin also insisted on a direct dialogue between Kyiv and separatist leaders and the removal of economic blockades on the region.

A German statement said the Western leaders voiced concerns about plans by the separatists to hold elections outside the framework of Ukrainian law...................

Ukraine army intelligence provided a report on the results of the return fire following the Aug. 27 night rebel attack near Mariupol in which Ukraine army lost six servicemen dead, sector M spokesman Yaroslav Chepurny said, reports Aug. 29.

By return fire, Ukraine artillery destroyed four trucks and 80 tons of ammunition in the village of Styla.

The morning following the Russian troops / rebel attack, 51 of their servicemen were delivered to a hospital in Novoazovsk, 8 in critical condition.

Five Russian officers were delivered in a separate vehicle and their bodies were at once sent to Russia.

Near Telmanove, Ukraine artillery destroyed an ammunition depot and the concentration of APCs, destroying 51 of them.

As the return fire continued, panic sent the enemy troops fleeing from the area, the spokesman said.
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko once again assures that the amendments to the Constitution provide for no special status of Donbas.

The President said this during the meeting with representatives of the territorial communities on Saturday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Some argue that there is currently a threat of granting a special status. There is no status there. It is very difficult to look for a black cat in a dark room, especially when it's not there," Poroshenko said.

The Head of State has reminded that the Constitution states: the status of the Ukrainian capital and other cities shall be determined only by the laws of Ukraine.

I posted an article yesterday stating that Kremlin propaganda is being boosted in Kharkiv and in other major cities. Many are giving into it and building animosity against the Ukrainian government which is what the Kremlin wants. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out, but there are the weak that will believe everything they're told.

Don't be a victim. Think positive, not like a loser. Support Ukraine and its government. Currently they're going through challenges NO country would want to go through. The last thing they need are negative losers that have an answer to nothing.

Sitting on the porch of a log cabin in the picturesque foothills of the Carpathian Mountains, her back to the sun in an attempt to avoid the relentless heat, 33-year-old Darya Trushkina calmly recounts one of the many episodes of abuse she suffered in Ukraine's orphanage system.

She clearly remembers the pain, both physical and mental, of being tied up and beaten by her fellow housemates for the innocuous crime of achieving a good grade. Such experiences became a regular part of her formative years when, at the tender age of 9, she lost her parents and both siblings in a horrific accident.

Trushkina has now moved far beyond her calamitous past and plays an impressive leading role at Apple. Hers is one of many success stories that can be directly tied to a summer camp set in a sleepy mountain town deep in the heart of western Ukraine.

"The most important part was that they convinced us that we're not the trash of society," says Trushkina of the camp in the village of Vorokhta. "They made us realize that we can achieve anything we want."

She's referring to the Canadian-run orphan camp that she was selected to attend when she was 17 years old. While there, she had the epiphany that her life did not have to be defined by anguish. She says she owes the transformation of her life to Ruslana Wrzesnewskyj, a Canadian native who founded Help Us Help The Children (HUHTC).

Wrzesnewskyj founded HUHTC after witnessing the appalling living conditions of Ukrainian orphans during a trip to adopt her own child, and as a result the nonprofit organization's camp has hosted orphaned children from across Ukraine for three weeks each summer. Now in its 20th year, the camp has been attended by more than 450 children, some as young as 6 years old. The majority are orphans and, in a reflection of the reality of wartime Ukraine, there is an increasing number of children who have lost their fathers to the fighting. .......................

Russia and its president Vladimir Putin do not support amendments to Ukraine's Constitution in terms of decentralization of power.

This was stated by Ukraine's president Petro Poroshenko, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.

"Who is the first one to oppose amendments to Ukraine's Constitution? Putin. Russia. They want us to agree the decentralization with them. I will not let the Constitution be written from outside the country," Poroshenko said during a meeting with representatives of territorial communities in Kyiv on Saturday.

"If Russia is against our changes - we are on the right track," the president stated.

Poroshenko said that in the past week he met with President of France Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and others.

"Yesterday I had a conversation with US Vice President Joe Biden. Do you know what unites all these conversations? All members of global pro-Ukrainian coalition declare two issues: firstly - they support Ukraine in fulfillment of the Minsk agreements and insist on all liabilities taken. Secondly - they strongly welcome Ukraine's constitutional reform in terms of decentralization. I stress it again - there is only one country opposing," Poroshenko said. In Russian

First things first. This is Ukraine, it's not Russia and he's not part of the government of Ukraine.

The little dwarf should stay out of Ukraine's political workings. He's not the powerful leader he thought he was. The only fear there is globally for Putin is, he's a pain in the ass. He knows himself his military's no challenge, especially that of the US. Him backing out in Georgia showed he knew that. So! He doesn't scare the west as he thinks he does.

Russia has more problems currently than it can handle. As shown in an article above, foreign investment is a no-no in Russia. Him and his oligarch are having to dump billions to improvement the rubles value. The amount he loses per a $1 drop in oil prices use to be $1.4 billion. Now! From latest report, it's $2 billion per $1 drop. We're seeing more and more little protests by Russians that have had enough. He went as far as to have a teacher's computer taken away, because she wrote a poem about Ukraine. Now tell me that's not a move from fear. He's trying to put a choke on social media for fear of finding out the truth. He's increasing his propaganda in western countries against Ukraine's government, as I ran into one yesterday which I blocked. He's burning food that can be feeding many Russians that don't have food to eat, just to spite the west. The numbers of dead Russian soldiers has been revealed (2000+) and that's also frustrating Russians. President Obama won't meet with him, when he comes to address the UN. Some of his big wigs won't be allowed an open visa to the US and they're pissed. His auto industry has been hit hard. These industries that have been hit also means many lose their jobs. That's not good for the Kremlin.

There are so many issues Russia currently has and at the same time trying to tell Ukraine what to do! Why hasn't a Russian attempted to take him out yet is beyond me. Frustration will soon burst and someone might just do it. So it's time for him to take care of his own ass than of other countries. Many Russians will celebrate in the streets when he's dead and gone.

Not good news. I don't understand why, to be honest.

Oil price in biggest rise since December 2008
Oil jumped by the most in six and a half years on Thursday, rebounding from lows last seen during the financial crisis, as a surge in global stock markets and outages in two major Nigerians pipeline sparked a rally.

Shell says gas supplies to Nigeria LNG reduced due oil pipeline issues
[Says due to a leak, and theft.
That will be fixed soon. And then prices will begin to fall again. Too much supply. Too little demand. ]

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande and Russian President Vladimir Putin plan to talk by phone this weekend to discuss the conflict in Ukraine, a German government official said Friday.
Better to let him stew for another half year until his financial war reserves are almost exhausted.
Not a bad report, but -
What do you expect? You are going to get divided opinions at a border town.
It's on the "border". Right?
Better to report on Putin sending more tanks, shells, missiles to the occupied territories.
Find me a real journalist....

Poro seems well read up on folklore. He was quoting Lewis Carroll a few days ago, I recall.
Baba Yaga - .
Baba Yaga was considered the goddess of war, bloodshed, human quarrels and disputes. She is the mistress of wild animals and the world of the dead and darkness, which is in the north. [3]

The starting point of each curve is the point of permanent deployment of a military unit in the territory of the Russian Federation (the “Units” tab in our database). The final point is the place of the incident in the territory of Ukraine which involved the servicemen of this unit (the “Incidents” tab in our database).

Good map. Massive massive Russian involvement - as if we didn't know.
One think we certainly know - Putin is a massive massive liar.

I had a taste of it Friday, as a Kremlin troll out of nowhere on Twitter started bashing Poroshenko like he was some kind of demon. Had to stop him fast. Of course, I gave him a piece of my mind, then blocked him. Don't try to convince them that they're wrong, as they know they are, but it's their job to start shyte.

Most investors now do not want to invest in Russia, because the risks are too great, and revenues decreased significantly, wrote in a column for the Financial Times Financial Analyst Chris Weafer, reports ICTV.
He admits that Russia is now in a very precarious and dangerous state. But at the same time, it gives two conditions under which it is possible again to invest in the local market. First - this rise in oil prices. The second - the progress in the peaceful settlement in the Donbas....
And until a new peace plan, the Kremlin will teach a course on survival, not prosperity of the economy. Until that time, investors in Russia had nothing to do

I didn't know it wasn't working! I almost took it to Sofiaska plocha last weekend to see the flag raising by Poro.
Good job I didn't. Apparently there has been some dispute also about what colors to paint it in.
We'll find out in time what happened.
In just the past day pro fighters 74 times violated the ceasefire.
