Scumball Shaun Walker, having written his article on nazi Ukraine and antisemitism - now heading towards Debaltseve - Donetsk. On his way home.
Meeting up with his "DNR guys".

Weather -
Super. Blue sky, sunshine. Already 17 at 0700. Currently 30C.  
Slightly higher for more western areas.

Footie -
Dnepr 1 Lazio 1 . Ok result. Thought Dnepr might win.

An old cartoon, but some things never change -

Who lost Ukraine? [Engl; WP]

Post by Nelson on Fri Sep 18, 2015 1:14 am

https://www.washingtonpost.com/posteverything/wp/2015/09/15/who-lost-ukraine/
As Russia shifts its attention from Ukraine to Syria, it is worth assessing who has won and who has lost in the Ukraine conflict....
The hard truth remains that Putin’s strategic position now is weaker than it was five years ago. Now he has to deal with a weaker domestic economy, a hostile Ukrainian government that will create more Russian casualties, and a NATO that’s gearing up to more credibly defend Eastern Europe. Putin has responded in numerous ways, none of them terribly effective. Sure, he’s embraced the east — but China will be happy to exploit this opportunity for commercial gains and not much else....

Russian Politicians Building an International Extreme Right Alliance [English]

Also the sort of thing that Seamus Milne likes - he adores Putin, just like his favorite "journalist" Shaun Walker.
In Milne's case this is party based on his pathological hate for the USA.
Bizarre to me how the extreme left and the extreme right converge.

Corbyn's Idealism Does Not Help Europe [Engl]

Post by Nelson on Fri Sep 18, 2015 1:33 am

http://www.cepa.org/content/corbyns-idealism-does-not-help-europe
This is the sort of abuse of power that would normally get Mr Corbyn quite cross. But he has a blind spot when it comes to Russia. The Kremlin stands up to the West. The West is evil. Therefore the Kremlin is good....
I recently asked Mr Corbyn, via Twitter, why his anti-imperialist sentiments did not stretch to understanding countries such as Ukraine....
As it might be expressed in George Orwell’s Newspeak, Ukrainians are unpeople, and Ukraine is an uncountry. Mine was an unquestion and Mr Corbyn has not yet answered it. ..

This decision [removal of immunity] was followed by...the Prosecutor General of Ukraine Viktor Shokina who submitted video evidence of involvement Mosiychuk to corruption. After that "radicals" staged a fight in the Rada. Himself Lyashko shouted Parliament Speaker Volodymyr Groisman, "Bastard, bastard!".

The GPU reported that suspected Mosiychuk under five articles of the Criminal Code: it is accused of offering, promising or receiving undue benefits, or the threat of violence against official interference in the judicial process, or the threat of violence against judges.

Rather fat and round deputy arrested yesterday on corruption charges. Member of Liashko's "Radical" party.
Was item one on several news channels last night.

Video shows the proceedings in parliament, and the two votes, resulting in his subsequent arrest



Frankly, he's a typical Ukrainian MP. Arrogant, corrupt, male.
I would say a good half of them are like this. Not good for Liashko though...
Here - taken away by the police -

Temperatures around Ukraine today - pleasantly warm.

Post by Nelson on Fri Sep 18, 2015 9:00 am

I just checked online -
Kiev 29, Lviv 28, Zhitomir 31, Odessa 24, Vinnitsa 30, Donetsk 26. Yalta 28, Hmelnitski 31. Ivano-Frankivski 31... can't find anywhere above 31... must be somewhere..
this at 15.00 hrs. Quite toasty in some places today. Same tomorrow.
N.B. 31 = 88F Wink

Berdichev 32C ! Also found Hmelnik (near Hmelnitski) also 32. Probably the high for Ukraine today. )
Seems the centre is warm, but the north and south extremes cooler - so Shostka - north - where my favourite cheese comes from, is 24, like Odessa, way south.

Rebels jumping ship on large scale, media reports say

Post by Admin on Fri Sep 18, 2015 1:24 pm

As rumors about the oncoming redeployment of Donbas rebels to Syria get spread, more and more separatists desert the army not to repeat the fate of their leader Motorola whose photo with Bashar al-Assad portrait, a Syrian flag and a fresh Syrian newspaper in his hands made headlines in Donbas, informator.lg.ua reports Sept. 18.

The rumors that the announced mobilization is aimed to find volunteers to go to Syria also contributed to the panic.

According to a well-informed source in the Donetsk republic staff, the rebel troops are hit by a massive flight of servicemen from its ranks, with the strength of units shrinking several times.

The rebels increasingly say they’ve been had by Russia.  

zik.ua

Obvious signs that Putin's plans in eastern Ukraine aren't going well at all. Now they're Putin terrorists for hire to go to Syria. OR! They're no longer being supported by the Kremlin as before and they're going where the money is.

We all know their Kremlin support has been dwindling. Also reading reports that the terrorists are fighting against the Russian (Kremlin) terrorists. These aren't good signs for the little dwarf.

Now with the Kremlin jumping in head first in Syria, it'll stretch their funding even thinner. I just hope the west doesn't drop the ball and offer Russia in Syria any assistance as that'll save the Kremlin money and give the Kremlin a better chance at victory which we all know the dwarf badly needs back home. It'll also extend it's involvement within Ukraine.
