Ukraine crisis. News in brief. Friday 11 September [Ukrainian sources]

on Fri Sep 11, 2015 12:54 am
FRIDAY

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

News -
ATO reports no fire from Putin yesterday. A real turn around.
Putin loves war and death. What is his next "game"? Terrorist attacks one would presume, on cities, civilians.
Plus "election" games at the point of a gun.
Sadly heard on tv news last night of Ukrainian military deaths. Landmine. 2 dead and 4 injured. But read this morning of 1 death and 5 injured.
Expect exact figures at the 1230 briefing.  
Update - now saying 2 dead, 4 injured.
1545 - Sept 11 - 9/11 anniversary. Short ceremony on White House lawn - live on tv.
Now live on tv - 1600 - Poro meeting with a Eurocommissioner.

Weather -
Same as yesterday. High near 18 around the capital. Further south a touch warmer.
Blue sky and sunshine this morning. 9C at 0700.

Yatseniuk in Chechnya -
More and more "Russian evidence" appearing of the PM in Chechnya. Apparently his nom de guerre was "The four-eyed killer".



Был послан хунтой вы прошлое 1994 год штобы убить владимира путина и повоевать вы чечне
Sent by the junta in 1994 to kill Putin and make war in Çhechnya.

"Batkivshina" requires the adoption of a common position, otherwise it will come out of the coalition - MP (UNN)

According to Tymoshenko, the government in approving the distribution of natural gas balance for 2015, violated the law
====

The gas-princess wants her hands on the gas contracts again. She's made billions on this, and wants to make billions more, I am sure.
Her price for staying in the coalition it would seem. $$$$ is what Tymoshenko - Batkivshina understand.
I personally know some real bandits in her party hierarchy. Real mafia people. No joke.

Ramzan Kadyrov said he had not seen Yatsenyuk in Chechnya during the war
====
Ah - ha!!! Just because he says he did not see him. Yatseniuk was apparently in the "punishment squads" according to the chief Russian investigator. Well...
Kadyrov couldn't have seen everybody involved in the execution and torture of Russians.

Joking aside, I find it hard to believe that the BBC are actually taking this story seriously.

Who is Bastrykin? The Russian Investigative Committee Chairman

on Fri Sep 11, 2015 4:13 am
https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%91%D0%B0%D1%81%D1%82%D1%80%D1%8B%D0%BA%D0%B8%D0%BD,_%D0%90%D0%BB%D0%B5%D0%BA%D1%81%D0%B0%D0%BD%D0%B4%D1%80_%D0%98%D0%B2%D0%B0%D0%BD%D0%BE%D0%B2%D0%B8%D1%87
=====

Who exactly is the nutcase who said that Yatseniuk fought in Chechnya, even giving precise details, like in the area of the 9th hospital in Chechnya. ...
=====

Бастрыкин, Александр Иванович
Bastrykin Alexander Ivanovich
(b. August 27, 1953, Pskov) - Soviet and Russian jurist and statesman.
Chairman of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation [1], State Counselor of Justice of Class 1, Colonel-General of Justice.

 1975 graduated from the Law Department of Leningrad State University (LSU). Bastrykin was in the same group with Vladimir Putin and served as mayor of this group. [2] [3]



September 19, 2012, Novaya Gazeta claimed on the basis of documents issued by the Spanish authorities that his wife Bastrykin Olga Alexandrova had an apartment with total area of ​​80 sqm in the town of Torrevieja province of Alicante (Spain), in the center of the resort area of ​​Costa Blanca (the Mediterranean coast) 26 February 2007 to August 2, 2011. As the newspaper writes, as civil servants, Bastrykin obliged to declare all the property belonging to him and his family, but in the studied newspaper declarations of income and property Bastrykin from 2008 to 2011 makes no mention of his wife's estate in Spain [58].

=====

Yatseniuk is known for having a very keen and dry sense of humour. The response of his press-secretary when this story broke was that the Russian investigator should go for a psychiatric examination. ...
Where does Bastrykin come from? Псков ...Pskov . A psycho in Russian - психо. Psikho
Is Yats making a higher level joke that the idiot Bastrykin should retire, and go back home to Pskov?

According to him, the Russian government wants to put on the negotiation table president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and one of the top fighters Alexander Zakharchenko - and thus make him recognize the "DNR" and "LNR".
"This will not" - said Kuchma.

Re: Ukraine crisis. News in brief. Friday 11 September [Ukrainian sources]

on Fri Sep 11, 2015 6:45 am
The Donbas Battalion, a volunteer unit of Ukraine's National Guard, was caught in a recent stand-off with Russian-backed separatists in the Shyrokyne region, near the strategic port city of Mariupol. The battalion has since rotated out of the area, where regular army units have taken over as Ukraine's leaders discuss a demilitarization plan. During the height of the fighting, a freelancer photographer, who asked to remain anonymous for security reasons, spent three weeks embedded with the battalion. From his vantage point on the front lines, the photographer captured scenes of trench warfare, raids, shelling, and soldiers' total exhaustion in the midst of the conflict.

Truce in Donbas deceptive, Kremlin maneuvers to appease the West rather than end war, - U.S. Department of State

on Fri Sep 11, 2015 10:18 am
Strobe Talbott believes cease-fire in the Donbas to be Kremlin's maneuver. According to him, it is not cease-fire that should end the war in the east of Ukraine but a peace agreement.
The war in eastern Ukraine should not come to a permanent cease-fire in the end but to a clearly drawn up peace agreement. This deal should not only guarantee Ukraine its territorial integrity but also allow it to pursue an independent foreign policy and choose its development vector without regard to Russia. This was announced by president of Brookings Institution and United States Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott at the YES summit, Censor.NET reports citing zn.ua.

According to him, the current cease-fire, mentioned by president Poroshenko, should be treated with caution. Talbott says that this is just Kremlin's maneuver in its geopolitical game.

Talbott states that the underlying reason of the truce is rather an attempt to appease the West, but not to end the war, and the West should keep this in mind when it soon returns to the issue of extending the sanctions.

We will initiate stripping Russia of veto right at UN General Assembly session, Poroshenko says

on Fri Sep 11, 2015 11:25 am

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has called for discussing the deprivation of Russia's veto right at the UN Security Council at the session of the UN General Assembly in September.

Poroshenko said at the annual meeting of the Yalta European Strategy (YES) in Kyiv Sept. 11, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.

"It is time to pool efforts in order to reform and improve the institutions and instruments which are bound to serve the principles and norms of international law, i.e. the veto right of Russia at the UN Security Council. Russia's aggression against Ukraine has vividly demonstrated the shortcomings of this mechanism. Hopefully, we will launch a related debate at the forthcoming 70th session of the UN General Assembly," he said.

Petro Poroshenko believes that the anti-Ukrainian policy of Russia in Donbas and Crimea "has completely ruined" the post-WWII international security system.

The head of "Gazprom" told what will happen to gas transit through Ukraine after the 2019 th

on Fri Sep 11, 2015 12:10 pm
The head of "Gazprom" Alexei Miller said that the Russian gas monopoly, is ready to negotiate with Ukraine on gas transit through its territory, and after 2019, when the contract ends. He said after talks with European Commission Vice President Maroš Šefčovič.

"We are ready to negotiate with Ukraine on the transit after 2019, but are not ready and will not sign it on the unacceptable conditions", - said Miller.

He noted that the decision of the Stockholm arbitration on this issue will determine the further negotiations on the issue.

Miller explained that it was not an automatic zeroing transit through Ukraine because, for example, in Moldova the gas will still be shipped through Ukrainian territory.

Recall now held gas talks the EU and Russia, during which an agreement was reached on the terms of the "winter" package of gas supplies to Ukraine.
