News -
Madman Putin fired 8 times at the Ukrainian people yesterday.
Update - 2 Ukrainian soldiers killed. 2 injured. And one missing without trace.

It was all quiet for one day. But clearly an order now from Putin for more deaths.
Actually, I think he is trying slowly to get rid of his mercenaries - save money and problems. Fewer and fewer witnesses.

Weather -
This week is looking better. Last week was very cool.
Should get near 20 today for Kiev, maybe 25 further south.
The morning cloud has cleared, and now blue sky where I am.

Schengen -
Germany has introduced controls at the border with Austria, and the Czech republic has done the same.
So much for the Schengen visa zone!

Oliver Carroll, Shaun Walker -
Carroll. Not bad report in the Independent - quasi interview with Poroshenko.
But the goofball rolled up to interview the President in jeans. Talk about arrogance.
Walker - looks like the Russiaprofile reporter is in Kiev. Bad news. Expect an article in the Guardian about one or more of -
a) Ukrainian fascists, b) Ukrainian nazis, c) Pravi sector - Svoboda attacking jews in Uman? .... or something else bad about Ukraine.

Lviv Regional Administrative Court on September 14 declared unlawful refusal to grant MIA Ukrainian translation of the speech Interior Minister Arsen Avakov.

Reported Galnet citing

"To declare illegal the refusal of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Litinskii Svyatoslav Vladimirovich to provide an authentic translation of the official language speech of the Minister of Interior" - said, in particular, in the judgment of the court.

Recall that from Lviv Svyatoslav Litinskii filed a lawsuit against the Interior Ministry for refusing to give it authentic (ie authorized MIA) translation A. Avakov two speeches, delivered on June 26 and July 4. Interior Minister gave these two speeches in Russian, so Litinskii S. appealed to the Interior Ministry demanding to give it a translation and after refusing the Interior Ministry appealed to the court. After the appearance of information on the claim to the Interior Ministry promised to accompany video all performances A. Avakov text translation into Ukrainian.

"I hope that they will give only translation, but also the minister stop break! This win - this is only half a step on the way to victory. My goal - to force officials to comply century. 10 of the Constitution of Ukraine ", - said today's court decision S. Litinskii. In Ukrainian

Enforce the constitution which stipulates government sessions should be in the Ukrainian language.
I also recall, back in those years where Nelson (Editor) and a few others USE to indulge in reading Kyiv Post, till we found out their shenanigans that included Taras Kuzio (A Tymoshenko prostitute). Also Anthony Van Der Craats which was and probably still is a Kremlin troll.

The same occurred in their article comments. Other news outlets also had the same issue and had to discontinue their comments section. It's still being practiced nowadays.

But they'll all lose in the end, as the mother source is losing on this investment. Anyone can smell a troll, these days. Problem is, they're using an old NKVD disguise by imitating Ukrainians which many of us are smart enough to catch them at their act. But many aren't so bright and fall for their propaganda.

And now Bonner makes you subscribe to read that propaganda which is mainly pasting articles from other sources, not from his journalists. Why pay, when you can get it from the original source?

He had a good news source, till he got money hungry. We post the same here at no cost. Some do offer us salo which we happily accept.
Madness by Yarosh, in my opinion.
Svoboda - really down in the dumps following the scandal at Mukacheva - over who controls the contraband scene there, and then
the grenade attack at the Rada. 3 dead at least. And over 50 soldiers still in hospital.
I don't expect them to get much support at the elections in 6 weeks' time.
[metal fragments in his elbow]

The Russian military conducted public executions in the occupied Gorlovka and Donetsk.

Reported MP, coordinator of the movement "Informational resistance" Dmitry Tymchuk on his page on Facebook.

"In an attempt to unauthorized firing of artillery installation by Russian soldiers was shot the head of one of the checkpoints of the local community", - he said.

In addition, in the Petrovsky district of Donetsk for arbitrariness Russian command handed down and carried a sentence - shot two terrorists from the local community.

No evidence, but quite possible. Putin want's to reduce his costs, it seems.

That's all the information that's given.
Further deaths. Sad - so sad. When will the graveyards stop filling up with the bodies of young fit men?

The sanctions extended to March 2016

Council of the European Union (EU) today, September 14, approved the extension of sanctions against individuals and entities of Russia and Ukraine who are involved in undermining the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine. This is stated in the press service of the EU.

Thus, continued sanctions against 149 people and 37 companies to 15 March 2016 in the EU said that the current situation does not give grounds for changing the sanctions regime or any change in the "black list".

The Russians around Putin are living in outer space.
Maybe a few luxury mansions around Putin's place - Yanukovich, and his crime gangland leaders.
But what about the other tens of thousands living in squalid apartments in Sevastopol, or Simpferopol?

As for Beverly Hills -
I don't think this guy has been to LA. Suggests he takes a bus from downtown south... and learns some Spanish to talk to the bus driver!
And then go back, and take a bus west to Beverly Hills. Amazing amazing contrast.
I don't think you need to be an "expert" to work that one out. She says that Putin wants to get free of the western sanctions asap.
300 Canadian military. That's a large contingent.
It is reported that on September 12, Kyiv hosted the 11th regular congress of the party "Yednist" in which it was decided to nominate Omelchenko candidate for mayor of Kiev.
Personal opinion, from talking to people in and around Kiev - Klitchko still very popular, even among the babushkas, who particularly like him because
a) he is tall, and b) he is good looking. Well - that's what the babkas told me.

I think everybody - including everybody in the Donbass - just wishes they would go back to Russia.
"The decision has been taken in response to the significant and sustained reduction in demand for travel between Moscow and London in recent months which has been driven by a number of factors including the weakness of the Russian economy together with the tightening of the visa approval process," the statement said....
The airline said in May it was scrapping its Moscow-Manchester flights from Oct. 23 due to falling demand,...
British tourists to Russia, on the other hand, now face an extra hurdle when obtaining a Russian visa: They have to visit the visa center in London in person to provide their fingerprints, a measure that has put off some would-be tourists who live outside the capital.

The road to isolation. The road to North Korea.

I just noticed this at the bottom of the Moscow Times article above. Not sure how long this has applied for.
Dear reader,
Due to the increasing number of users engaging in personal attacks, spam, trolling and abusive comments, we are no longer able to host our forum as a site for constructive and intelligent debate.
It is with regret, therefore, that we have found ourselves forced to suspend the commenting function on our articles.
The Moscow Times remains committed to the principle of public debate and hopes to welcome you to a new, constructive forum in the future.
The Moscow Times


Sad, but a sign of the times. The Kyiv Post did a similar thing when some people were critical of Tymoshenko and his butt-kissing supporter, Taras Kuzio.
Kuzio criticised Yatseniuk as a jew, and other people - well - anybody in opposition to Tymoshenko was attacked in the paper, at that time.
Some people wrote critical comments about this, and were swiftly banned.
Then the Kyiv Post introduced registration, but only allowed Tymoshenko supporters to join and comment. Probably no different today. I think Kuzio still produces garbage for the KP. Shows that $$$$ still rules in the Ukrainian press world. In this case, Tymoshenko's $$$$.

Most of the campaigns were heavily dominated by pro-Kremlin candidates. Only one region — Kostroma — went ahead with the participation of opposition members openly critical of Putin, putting the region east of Moscow in the media spotlight.
Ilya Yashin, a close ally of the opposition leader Boris Nemtsov who was shot dead in central Moscow earlier this year, headed the list of the People's Freedom Party (Parnas) for the elections in the Kostroma region. Parnas had also submitted candidates for elections in three other regions, but they were refused registration on technical pretexts.
On Sunday, the offices of the Otkrytye Vybory (Open Elections) organization in Kostroma were stormed by police who said that the premises had to be vacated as they were a crime scene where a murder had been committed, according to a live video broadcast. Elections observers and the media were forced out of the building, despite multiple complaints.

No opposition allowed in Russia. Dictatorship.
BERLIN — Buoyed somewhat by the relative success of a two-week-old cease-fire in eastern Ukraine, the foreign ministers of Germany, France, Russia and Ukraine have urged fighters and mediators to build on that progress and withdraw weapons and remove land mines as well as prepare for local elections later this year.
The four nations held what the German foreign minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, described as one of their less confrontational meetings late Saturday, reviewing as they have on six previous occasions the state of a truce and overall accord that has never fully held or been carried out.

Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko, who says he has worked “every day and night” of those 15 months, is not ready to dream just yet. “This is not the end of the war, but instead a change in tactics,” he told The Independent in a rare interview. “We know where the Russians and their proxies are still hiding their weapons, their tanks and their artillery – for now the order has been given to cease fire, but for how long?”
Interview with Oliver Carroll. Nice exclusive for him. Almost - apparently with the WP and Die Welt.

[Carroll with the beard. Wearing jeans? Unreal. Fresh out of Cambridge, one would think! -  yet to enter the real world, it appears.
Or maybe he thinks he is one of the Beatles? (His part of the world).
Left of Poro, looking at the photo, Birnbaum of the Washington Post. Other guy from Die Welt, Gerhard Gnauck. Both wearing suit and tie.
Don't the Independent pay this pinhead enough for him to be able to buy some trousers?? And a real shirt? I could lend him a tie.]

But frankly not much of an interview. Very few direct quotes, for whatever reason.
He asked about the grenade attack at the Rada, but Svoboda was not even mentioned.
Sakashville also, in Odessa... no counter to the criticism. Poro said that he would make a good PM - of Georgia.
Verdict - fairly bland.

The interview in Die Welt here, with a heading "Ich furchte gar nichts mehr". Forgive my missing umlauts. Translates basically as
I do not fear any more. Online translation  - I fear nothing.
printed as a straight interview.

In the meantime, the gang's all here. You could have bumped into Marat Bashirov, the former prime minister of the separatist Luhansk People's Republic, at the Moscow Economic Forum this March, where he gave a lecture titled "Risks, sanctions, lobbying". Bashirov, a Moscow government relations consultant once employed by the oligarch Viktor Vekselberg's holding company, was sanctioned by the European Union in July 2014 along with Borodai.
A snappy dresser, he remarked on a government airstrike on his headquarters in July last year in a dry post on Facebook: "It seems my Tom Ford suit has been killed. Now I will hold government sessions in camouflage."
There is also Igor Girkin, the battle commander who once bragged that if not for his attacks on police stations in April last year, there would be no war in Ukraine. He now appears at lectures with far-right nationalists and has gone spectacularly off message, accusing Russia of abandoning the separatist republics in Ukraine that it helped to create.

Sydney Morning Herald. I wonder how the relatives of the Australian dead feel about all this?
Borodai, when asked whether he would go to the Netherlands to face trial if accused. "This is a story that is long in the past for me
But not for the relatives of the dead, I am sure.
According to radio intercepts, in the area occupied Fyodorovka to Russia broke a group of militants.
In addition, under the Debalcevo during loading of military equipment there was a strong explosion. These incidents sown anxiety among the Russian military. This was reported by blogger Oleg Yarchuk specialist, according to radio intercepts.

The mercenaries must realise that their time in the Donbass is over. Putin will want to eliminate them now. Suicide missions and the like.
"After midnight and until 6 am on September 14 in the area of ​​the ATO remained silent," - noted in the headquarters.
