According to the survey, only 29% of the population supports the DPR. Earlier, the figure was even lower - 22%.

The vast minority of citizens agreed to consider themselves patriots of Russia. According to the results of sociologists, these are 11% in the town of Ilovaisk and 12% in the town of Debaltseve. In general, only 10% of citizens in the DPR consider themselves patriots of Russia.

Most people consider themselves patriots of Donbas. From 34% to 48% of respondents gave a positive answer to this question in different towns of the DPR....
The current Ukrainian Government managed to move toward free-floating exchange rate regime, to negotiate with private creditors on debt restructuring, and to reform the gas and banking sectors for the short period time during the crisis, making the unheard-off efforts.

World Bank Country Director for Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova Qimiao Fan stated this at the XII annual meeting of the Yalta European Strategy (YES), an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"We need to realize the challenges, which the National Bank and the entire Government have faced. These challenges are unexampled. The authorities have made extraordinary steps and unheard-of measures to conduct reforms," the World Bank Country Director said.

According to him, the Government managed to move toward free-floating exchange rate regime, to negotiate with private creditors on foreign debt restructuring, and to reform the gas and banking sectors. "No country has liquidated one-third of its banks in such a short period of time," Qimiao Fan stressed.
Moscow has “shifted from the logic of a dispute to the logic of isolation” and is seeking to convince Russians that Western sanctions imposed following the Crimean Anschluss and Russian invasion of the Donbas have nothing to do with those events but rather reflect permanent Western hostility to Russia, Nezavisimaya Gazeta says.

In a lead article today, the editors of that Moscow paper draw that conclusion on the basis of a recent declaration by Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov that sanctions will remain in place for a long time because they are intended to limit Russia’s ability to act independently (

Ryabkov’s words, the paper says, “reflect a transition to the completely isolationist logic in which the Russian authorities act today;” and that in turn reflects the conclusions of Presidential advisor Sergey Glazyev that Russia must move in the direction of “still greater economic isolation from the West.”

“Initially, immediately after the flight of Viktor Yanukovych, the annexation of Crimea, and the beginning of the conflict in the Donbas,” the editors say, “the logic of the Russian authorities was somewhat different.” Then, it stressed Russia’s “right to defend its ‘own,’ that is the Russian speakers” and drew parallels between Crimea and Kosovo.

No one spoke then, the paper continues, about sanctions remaining in force for any length of time apparently because the Kremlin believed that the West would “recognize their senselessness and cancel them not being able to live without Russia.” Now, the worsening of the economic situation has led to “a change in logic.”

For the Kremlin now, “citizens must be convinced that sanctions are not the result of Crimea or the Donbas.” Instead, a new “’correct’” interpretation is being offered: “the West and especially the United States cannot deal with our stormy growth, wants to slow it, and Ukraine is the occasion for doing so.”

In the former interpretation, there is great room for diplomacy; in the new one, there is little room left because Russian diplomats must soon follow politicians and television commentators in insisting that “’the West always hates us, it wants to ruin us, there is nothing to talk about with it.”

But such a shift raises some questions, the paper’s editors say. “For example, if the Russian authorities always knew that the West would not allow the strengthening of Russia, then why did they so poorly prepare the country for the present and as they assert inevitable pressure on it?”

Other questions also arise: Why didn’t the Russian authorities try to make the ruble less dependent on the price of oil? Why didn’t they try to find alternative sources of credit? And perhaps most important, because of the enormous support they enjoy from the population, why didn’t they use “this resource to carry out systemic reforms?”

If the authorities were not willing to do that in the “fat” years, they certainly will not do so in the “lean” ones now, Nezavisimaya Gazeta concludes.

Of course, there are at least two other explanations for Ryabkov’s statement, one domestic and one foreign political. Domestically, the Kremlin may fear that ever more Russians will draw a direct line between what Putin has been doing in Ukraine and their current suffering. Such a shift in opinion could threaten the regime.

Fear of further losing his country's support. Typical USSR propaganda. "OH! We can't act independently."  Sad  Sad  Sad
“Putin does not respect our president whatsoever” Trump tells Ukraine audience during speech via video link.

By Cathy Burke for Newsmax, Sep 11, 2015

Front-running GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump — on the stump in Ukraine via video link to a gathering of European leaders — lashed out at President Barack Obama's foreign policy and vowed to make the U.S. military very, very strong.

Our president is not strong, and he is not doing what he should be doing for the Ukraine, Trump, speaking from New York, declared to the Yalta European Strategy Forum, told an annual gathering of politicians and business people organized by Ukrainian businessman Viktor Pinchuk, Politico reports.

He added, [Russian President Vladimir] Putin does not respect our president whatsoever.

It's just one of those things where it's just not happening, and we're talking about many, many different elements, Trump told the gathering, Politico reports. And it is a big problem, and it is a problem that is taking place all over the world with respect to the United States. You have a problem, but many other countries have a problem and frankly, the United States has a problem.

To read further go to this link:

Not a word how he would help Ukraine with those troops. Typical political rhetoric (BS).

I also take it, he hasn't bothered to look into a one-on-one how the US would perform against the tattered Russian military. Russia military aircraft's are falling from the sky, as we've seen recently. Nothing to write home about. Do some research before you start blabbing.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has personally ordered to send up to 40,000 soldiers, including the regular Russian troops, to the territory of Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk stated this at the XII annual meeting of the Yalta European Strategy (YES), the government portal reports.

"President Putin has personally ordered to send 40,000 soldiers, including Russian regular troops, to the territory of Donetsk and Luhansk regions," Yatsenyuk said............
Putin made his remarks on September 12 while visiting the archaeological complex at Khersones, in the Ukrainian region of Crimea that was annexed by Russia in March 2014, with former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.

The Russian leader said that it could be possible to consider extending the implementation of the Minsk agreements beyond the end of the year, but that it would be better to find ways to meet existing deadlines.

In February, Ukraine and the self-proclaimed separatist enclaves in the east agreed to a cease-fire and steps to end the conflict, including some form of autonomy for the separatist areas and full control for Kyiv over Ukraine's borders.

Putin said Russia cannot decide the fate of the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine and that the most important thing to do now is to establish direct contacts between Kyiv and the separatist leaders.

On September 11, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said in Kyiv that he has ruled out extending the deadlines for the implementation of the Minsk agreements.......
In a candid interview to Russian independent TVRain channel, he revealed the inner workings of Russia’s hybrid army, including Russian supplies and training, internal rivalry, and banditism. Here is a summary of the interview.....

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko says the withdrawal of Russian forces from the east and the sealing of the nation's border with Russia are key conditions for peace in Ukraine.
Very short article. 4 or 5 sentences only.
But he held back from promising more U.S. support for a nation where almost 8,000 people have been killed since April 2014, saying that it was Europe's responsibility.
Peskov once again tried to prove that Russia is not a party to the conflict.
A spokesman for the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, said about the absurdity of the accusations against Moscow's failure to Minsk Agreement.

The Kremlin propaganda still existing in its labyrinth of lies.
Amazing. He distances himself from the stupidity of Svoboda killing unarmed Ukrainian soldiers in Kiev, and then..
a week later proposed merging with them...
Everybody I know of now speaks of Svoboda with disgust. And the Pravi Sector will likely move into the same category.
Maybe they think that a new name will help them in elections?
Berlusconi - Italian right wing fascist dreaming ex PM - popular with the idiotic Italians dreaming of a new Roman empire - is indeed a pathetic figure.
With dictator Putin he is in similar company.
Quite a bit of damage.
When I see the word Смерч Smerch - I normally think of Putin's "humanitarian aid"- it is a very nasty multiple missile system. Worse than Grad.
But in this case it was a natural tornado.
About 1820 hours gangs with grenade launchers, heavy machine guns and small arms fired on the outpost forces ATO near Avdeevka.
Also, around 6 pm, under the fire of enemy rocket-propelled grenades and small arms were Ukrainian position in Opitnoe.

report from 0815 this morning.
