Ukraine crisis. News in Brief. Monday 31 August [Ukrainian sources]

Post by Nelson on Mon Aug 31, 2015 12:23 am

First topic message reminder :

MONDAY

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

News -
I am still puzzled by he lull in fighting on Saturday. Only 19 attacks by Putin's forces.
Today's figures just released - say 16 attacks.
Update - 0 dead, 5 injured - Lysenko briefing at 1230.
Putin has some plan. What is he doing now?
Has realisation of his stupidity finally set in? I doubt it. He has stoked up hate of Russia in Ukraine for generations to come.

Constitutional changes -
The Rada should vote on this today. Meeting scheduled for 11 am.
Update - Rada tribunal blocked currently - 11.30 - by Liashko and his gang. So expect nothing to happen.
Update at 1300 - passed. 265 votes - enough for a first reading.
But they will need 300 at a further reading for the changes to take effect.
Reports also of some violence outside the Rada. At least 10 injured.
Some reports now say 50 injured, other reports say 100. Reading now of at least one death.
Now say he was 24 year old - newly mobilized. Shrapnel from a grenade.
Svoboda look like the culprits from all I have seen this afternoon on tv. We will see. More below.


Now saying the murderer was a member of the SICH batallion - formed by Svoboda.
So NOT a provocation as some were trying to make out.


Weather -
Hot today. 16 at 0600. High predicted of 30-32. And 35 tomorrow.
Update at 14.00 - 31 where I am. 33 in Odesa. That's in the low 90s there. Toasty.
Real smell of burning in the air again this morning. Had it for the last few days. Peat fires, I am told.
It tends to disperse during the day - for whatever reason. More noticeable at night and early morning.

01 September -
Tomorrow, the first day of school for many young Ukrainians. Traditionally here school starts on the 1st of September.
Shopping malls were busy at the weekend. It will all quieten down shortly as people get back into their routines.
But they will not be used to the barmy weather. 35 predicted for the first day back.[/b]

Poroshenko now live on tv

Post by Nelson on Mon Aug 31, 2015 12:27 pm

kanal 5

Sympathy for those wounded.
Taking about dis-arming the terrorists.
Looks like he needs to disarm some Ukrainians also.
He didn't really say anything about what he would do. But the Rada now needs protection from idiots.

Now saying 21 law enforcement officers were shot at the Rada today. New information.

Post by Nelson on Mon Aug 31, 2015 12:30 pm

now on Kanal 5.
Earlier reports of shooting.
The boy who died they thought had been shot, but he was hit by shrapnel supposedly to the heart.
now saying 21 others shot.
Just like Yanukovich did to those at Maidan.
This news only from one source - kanal 5 - at the moment.

Maybe Svoboda are really trying to start a civil war. This is absolute madness.
As Yarosh himself said, Idiotism.

No word at all yet from Tiagnibok. Nothing. Silence.

2nd source saying 21 shot at the Rada. Twenty-one

Post by Nelson on Mon Aug 31, 2015 12:38 pm

Минздрав: В результате беспорядков под Радой 21 человек получил огнестрельное ранение
http://glavcom.ua/news/321320.html

"According to the SE" Ukrainian scientific-practical center of emergency medical care and disaster medicine of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine "as of 17 hours. 05 min. to the emergency teams (emergency) medical care for medical help turned 44 people (civilians and law enforcement officers), who have suffered 31 August 2015 as a result of clashes between protesters and law enforcers near the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine ", - said in a statement.
It is noted that 21 of the injured were diagnosed with a gunshot wound.

In addition, affected obralilis in acute care about: poisoning - 2; slaughtering soft tissue - 4; polytrauma - 5; fracture of the left shin - 1; laceration - 2; ZKTG - 1; stress response - 2; ZCHMT - 4; contusion - 1; concussion - 1.


===========

Strange that they are only now saying this.
I guess they thought they were grenade injuries. But fire arms also.
==========

Found this video
Report says 5 policemen killed. I haven't heard that here yet.





==========
Many other videos. Some blaming Putin, of course.
But the evidence it that it was a Svoboda member who threw the grenade at the police - fresh from the frontline.
Do a search рада граната
Rada grenade - and you will find many videos now. Different angles.

Oleg Tyagnibok commented on the accusations (Hronika.info)

====

Now - he could, like Yarosh, have said it was madness and idiotism. And condemned it all but... he doesn't. He blames the Rada and the police.

Saying it was all a provocation... yeah...

Saying that the MPs who voted in favor of the new law were the first provocateurs.
And then the police attacked - they provoked the response.
And then - more provocation - so that the police threw grenades at themselves, and shot themselves, presumably. All a provocation.

There is good video of the guy at the back throwing the grenade. And he was found with a second grenade.
Presumably Tiagnibok will say the video was fake, and ... the grenade was planted on him... mega mega conspiracy....

"Svoboda" have blocked Goloseevskaya street, picketing district department of the Interior Ministry, demanding the release of detainees for a fight at BP. Photo-report (Tsenzor.Net)

==========

I presume they want the SICH batallion member who threw the grenade, killing and maming many young people, including veterans of ATO, releasing.
Plus others who maybe shot the policemen in the legs.
Maybe lets release a few rapists and axe-murderers also while we are at it.
Svoboda is finished.
It could have condemned the murder. But instead it wants the murderers released.
=========

I know there is no love lost between Avakov and Tiagnibok, but this violence - murder indeed - cannot be excused or simply forgotten.

Incidentally, I presume this is the police station fairly close to the central bus station. A pleasant residential area - or it was.
Quite close also to the old Karl marx chocolate factory.

PACE Сondemned the Visit Of the French MPs To the Crimea And Is To Develop Rules For Visiting the Occupied Territories

Post by Admin on Tue Sep 01, 2015 12:40 am

Bureau of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) has considered a conflict situation regarding the unauthorized visit of the French MPs, including the head of the Monitoring Committee Thierry Mariani, to Crimea.

This was said by the head of the Ukrainian delegation to the PACE, Volodymyr Aryev, who participated in the meeting of the Bureau, during his interview with Evropeiska Pravda.

As you know, a deputy of the National Assembly of France Thierry Mariani was the leader of a group of deputies who visited Crimea in late July.

According to Aryev, the Bureau was unanimous in condemning the French politician, but did not have legal instruments to punish him.

The governing body of the Assembly, however, decided that there is a need to develop rules that would guide the rest of the PACE members when visiting the occupied territories in the future.

“The case of Mariani was sent to the procedural committee. Bureau proposed to develop recommendations for such visits. Regarding distrusting him as a head of the committee – he said that if accused of manipulations to the Committee, he would immediately resign, “- said Volodymyr Aryev.

The meeting of the Migration Committee on the migration will take place in Strasbourg on 28 or 29 September, during the regular session of the PACE.

All five Ukrainian members of the Migration Committee, including Nadiia Savchenko, have signed an appeal to the Committee on Mariani’s resignation from his post.
