There are a few reports, regarding the downing of the MH17 flight in eastern Ukraine and as expected, the Kremlin's blaming Ukraine and will probably come up with some high tech information to show it. Remember, they do have some of the best hackers and techs globally. So, expect some real winners when it comes to fabrication from Russia.

It's been mainly quiet with no deaths and minimal injuries reported. There has been reports of the terrorists still shooting towards the ATO. There have reports of attempts by terrorists that have been stopped by the SBU, such as in Dnipropetrovsk. Some explosions have been reported around Ukraine, so the attempt to continue destabilization continues. IMO, when this conflict is said and done, the KRemlin's going to continue to destabilize life in Ukraine for spite, because it couldn't get Kyiv to bow to it.

The Hryvnia has dropped to 22.03 = $1.


This morning in Kyiv, the mercury dropped to around -2c and around +4c in the south.

This week's findings of the investigation into the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 have brought about questions as to whether Ukraine's actions to ‘partly close' its airspace above the volatile region had been sufficient.

The Dutch-led investigation published a report on Tuesday (October 13) into what brought down the MH17 flight killing all 298 people onboard. Now, the question on everybody's mind is "Will they ever find the group which is responsible for bringing down that flight".

You are correct, the international investigation experts have found not just the type of a missile that was used to hit down the Boeing aircraft, but also they found the exact site. And we know for sure that the site was at that time controlled by Russian-backed terrorists. Also, we should keep on mind that it was just an expert investigation, done by experts of civil aviation authorities. Right now we will be waiting for the criminal investigation to take place. It is still unclear whether all sides, or parties involved will conduct their own national criminal investigations, or they will find some way to go forward with a joint international investigation. Anyway, just a criminal investigation and then the court hearings must provide us with an answer who basically pulled the trigger or who gave an order. Anyway, the findings of this expert investigation is definitely proving that the missile was produced by Russia, basically the launching vehicle was also produced by Russia and the territory used for launch was under control, was supported by Russian terrorists. It looks like for a moment that there is no other way for criminal investigation but turn their eyes and minds towards Russia and look for those responsible for this terrible terrorist attack in the Russian Federation.....................

UNIAN: 49% of Ukrainians seek deepening relations with the European Union, while only 8% stand in favour of closer ties with Russia, that's according to the results of a survey by International Foundation for Election Systems (IFES), presented by the foundation's chief Rakesh Sharma at a UNIAN press conference on Tuesday.

The error does not exceed 2.5%, without taking into account the design effect.
"[The Islamic State militant group] just played with him, they used him, because he was young," says Mohammad, a Jordanian medical student at Kharkiv University.

Mohammad is talking about a fellow student, 23-year-old Mohammad Dalaeen, who blew himself up two weeks ago in a suicide attack in Iraq, killing around 30 people.

He and other friends say IS recruiters in Kharkiv merely took advantage of Dalaeen.

But how did the recruiters persuade this privileged young man to drop out of his studies and travel to Iraq to kill himself and others? What transformed Mohammad Dalaeen the medical student into Abu al-Bara al-Urdani the suicide bomber?

On the face of it, Dalaeen seems an unlikely IS recruit. A happily married aspiring doctor, he was the scion of a wealthy and well-respected Jordanian family: His father, Mazen Dalaeen, is a Jordanian lawmaker.

But perhaps the strangest and most shocking part of Dalaeen's story are claims that he was radicalized via his Ukrainian wife, a recent convert to Islam whom IS recruiters targeted at the kindergarten where she took her small son.

University Dropout

When IS recruited him this summer, Dalaeen had lived in Kharkiv for three years.

One of a large community of 1,500 Jordanian students, Dalaeen was due in October to start his second year as a medical student at Kharkiv University.

He was an average student who made C's, according to Tatyana Sevastyanova, the deputy dean of the medical school.

Then, in the summer, he suddenly dropped out.

Sevastyanova told RFE/RL's Ukrainian Service, Radio Svoboda, that the last time Dalaeen showed up at the university was in June.

The Road To Radicalization

The university told RFE/RL that they had not noticed any changes in Dalaeen's emotional state or in his behavior.

But others who knew him better said he had suddenly become more religious.

Raqi Rawashdeh, the president of Kharkiv's Jordanian community, comes from the same village as the Dalaeens. "Everyone knows [Dalaeen's] father. Everyone respects his family," Rawashdeh says.

Rawashdeh said he became concerned about Dalaeen's religious convictions some months earlier. And after Dalaeen's father became worried about his son, Rawashdeh offered to have a heart-to-heart with the young man.

"It was hard for his father to talk to Mohammad. I'm a bit younger than his dad, so I tried to get through to him by talking on the phone and in coffee shops," Rawashdeh recalls. "I asked him and he said, 'Yeah, everything is OK.'"

Rawashdeh tried to talk Dalaeen out of joining IS. "I asked him, where are you going, what for, tell me? Why are you going to fight? You're still young. They can do without you in Syria," Rawashdeh recalls.

But Dalaeen was "isolated [and] turned inward," Rawashdeh adds.

Dalaeen's father, Mazen, last saw his son in Kharkiv in June. He says Dalaeen seemed to listen to him, shaving off his beard and promising to give up his idea of traveling to Syria.

Mazen's hope was short-lived. A few months later, Dalaeen blew himself up in Iraq.
