Ukraine crisis. News in Brief. Sunday 30 August [Ukrainian sources]

on Sun Aug 30, 2015 5:06 am
SUNDAY

Please scroll down to view news items added during the course of the day

News -
I read that Putin only attacked 19 times yesterday. I need to check that from a second source. Very strange, if true. Confirmed at UP.
Update - No dead, one soldier injured yesterday. (sniper fire to head)
What is Putin doing now? Used to be 150 attacks, and now 19. Some new plan. But what? The guy is a complete nutcase.

Weather -
Pleasantly warm today. High expected of about 27C. But next week I saw 36 preducted for one day. 90s.
Very strange for early September.
Peat fires around Kiev - probably due to the heat. And it leaves a smell in the air, over the city.
If you drive outside the city it looks like a mist.

Petrol prices finally falling at the pumps -
After months of falling oil prices today I noticed that the price of gas at the pumps had finally fallen a little - from 24 to 22 hrvnia .. 10% down, near enough.
That should help the inflation figure also.

In general, over the past day, gang 19 times violated the ceasefire without using weapons, caliber exceeding 100 mm: 1 time militants used mortar, 10 - grenade launchers.
The press center ATO.

Very very strange.
What is Putin doing? One week he shells Ukrainians 150 times a day. And yesterday only 19 attacks, with no major artillery.
I don't remember the figure for the number of attacks by the Russian forces being that low.
But it has to be orders from Putin, or whoever is in control in the Kremlin. One suspects that Putin is rapidly losing popularity in the Kremlin.

Ukraine's forces held up by red tape [Engl]

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/ukraines-forces-held-up-by-red-tape-10478285.html
When bombarded from enemy positions, government units regularly have to seek permission for a counterstrike from superiors removed from the action. But they complain of an inefficient chain of command and say the fight is lost in a bureaucratic bottleneck. Heavy weapons are ready to use, but often high command must first give the green light. “That comes too late,” one officer told The Independent on Sunday.
