Personally I think Pope Francis made a big mistake in meeting Putin, and then saying nothing about him killing thousands upon thousands of Ukrainians.
But then the Vatican said nothing about Adolf Hitler either. Italians mostly in the Admin section - love fascism, one presumes.

Ukraine was in the worst possible position - Aslund

Post by Admin on Thu Jun 11, 2015 3:02 pm

In Ukraine, the situation is much worse than in the Nordic countries. In addition to high public spending and thus taxes are inefficient state , off-scale corruption and powerful oligarchs who enriched themselves through state subsidies, particularly in the energy sector. Ultimately Ukraine was in the worst possible position.

About this in his book "Ukraine: what went wrong and how to fix it," says the Swedish economist Anders Aslund, the translation of the passage which leads LigaBusinessInform .

"First, it (Ukraine. - Ed.), One of the highest levels of public spending in Europe on a par with France, Sweden and Denmark.
Secondly, it is one of the most corrupt countries in Europe and can not provide their citizens with the most basic public services, such as law and order, not to mention the good and quality education and health care, "- said Aslund.

Third, but no less significant reason, according to foreign experts, are high government spending that force to impose the population and the highest business taxes in the region, which further exacerbate the corruption, and inhibit the growth and development of entrepreneurship.

"Ultimately, even in such conditions Ukraine will not be able to finance its huge public spending, moving from one financial crisis to another, enjoying the tenth program of assistance from the IMF for two decades," - said the economist.

Aslund believes that this may not proceed further. "If Ukraine wants to be a normal state with a market economy and the potential for development, it is obliged to reduce their government spending drastically from 53% to 35% of GDP," - suggested the expert.

"Gazprom" announced inadequate gas prices for Ukraine - Gonchar

Post by Admin on Thu Jun 11, 2015 3:07 pm

Voiced by "Gazprom" the new retail price of Russian gas for Ukraine in the third and fourth quarter of 2015 is inadequate.
This is in exclusive comments "Observer" said the director of energy programs center "Nomos" Michael Potter.

"Of course, this price is inadequate. If we say that we now receive Russian gas at $ 248 per thousand cubic meters, then what we need to get it in the III and IV quarter more? The dynamics of oil prices in the second half of 2014 and in the first quarter 2015 has been downward, that is decreased. Therefore, I believe that it is not permissible in this case. And, obviously, this will be negotiated, and to show the inadequacy of the price or the inadequacy of the approach, "- he said expert.

This Gonchar stressed that even the price of $ 248, according to which Ukraine is buying Russian gas, is overstated.

"If we look at the dynamics of the European gas markets, even the price of $ 248 in some way higher than the prices of the spot market in Europe. Today, Ukraine receives a higher price for gas than, for example, the same consumer" Gazprom " - Germany. In addition, the average export price of gas, which was founded Russia for 2015 is $ 222 per thousand cubic meters. However, voiced by "Gazprom" figures for Ukraine for III and IV quarter - $ 287 and $ 262 - quite far from this average price. It is not excluded that in the IV quarter of German and Austrian companies, for example, will receive gas at even less than $ 200. The question then arises: why do we need to buy the gas from "Gazprom" for their proposed price? " - Is perplexed expert.

However, Mikhail Gonchar commented on the issue of a possible "Gazprom" announced by the discount to the retail price of "blue fuel".

"As for the so-called discount, it's just an element of propaganda games. What they (" Gazprom ". - Ed.) Talk about some" discount "(I purposely take it in quotation marks), it is not some charity, they just is not in a situation when they can dictate their price conditions. Because this depends directly on the amount of revenue they receive. Today the behavior of "Gazprom" - it exposes them to the position of the auction: "want $ 200? Well, we can sell you for $ 200, but you need to take, for example, 30 billion. Cubic meters of gas. "Just why do we need so many? We have 20 billion cubic meters, and it is not necessary. Therefore, in the forthcoming negotiations will depend on the right side "Naftogaz", which consists in the fact that we will not pay - either in price or volume ", - the expert said in conclusion.

Recall settlement price of gas, "Naftogaz", voiced by "Gazprom", without the discount for the third quarter of 2015 - $ 287.15, the fourth - $ 262.5 per thousand cubic meters.

The diplomat called for continued sanctions imposed against Russia.

"Russia still does not realize the consequences of their aggressive actions. Continued sanctions would be the right solution," - he said.

He stated this in an interview with " Gordon . "

This Parkhomenko said that the Russian authorities, this war is very profitable.

"I think the war will last for a very long time. Russia today's situation in the east of Ukraine is very necessary and very beneficial. The motto of the current government of the Russian Federation:" There is no end of the war in the Donbass! ", But because Russia will continue indefinitely and maintain this conflict do everything that embers do not decay, "- said the journalist.

This Parkhomenko said that the country does not imply a whole, and those who run the state.

"I emphasize: Speaking of Russia, in this context, I am not referring to the country as a whole, and the political regime, or rather group, which now controls the Russian state. This is a limited group of people with interests quite clear - to stay in power at any cost. It is this group interested in the endless continuation of the war. He who believes that war harms only Ukraine is very much mistaken. The same moral, economic and political damage it causes and Russia. What will result from Russia and Ukraine after the war, no one knows " - said the journalist.

Ukraine may get a new way of putting pressure on Russia, what you need to do

Post by Admin on Thu Jun 11, 2015 9:55 pm

Ukraine may get a new way to deal with the Russian aggression and instrument of pressure on the Russian Federation, if achieve reforms in the UN, particularly the Security Council of the organization.

This was reported in an article for "Apostrophes" chairman of the board of the International Centre for Policy Studies Vasily Filipchuk.

"The United Nations established, in fact, to prevent violent conflicts, was powerless (the situation with the annexation of the Crimea and the war in Donbas - Ed.) Because of outdated mechanisms. The vision of the principles of a global universe of 70 years ago is not only morally and politically out of date and does not meet modern realities, but more importantly - can not solve the most important contemporary issues. The UN has no alternative in the modern international legal order, but some of its mechanisms and structures are in urgent need of revision. It is enough to have an example of that in the case if the aggressor country is a permanent member of the Security Council, it can violate international law with impunity, take the opportunity to veto any decision of this body. And this right, as the experience of recent events, the Russian side has enjoyed quite willingly. Among other things, it is because -this veto of the Russian Federation in March last year, the Security Council failed to adopt a resolution on the illegitimacy of the referendum in the Crimea, and in the fall - the condemnation of the "elections" in the so-called LC and DNR. For this reason, the initiative of the Ukrainian authorities on the introduction of Donbass UN peacekeeping force is also practically impossible, unless, of course, under the peacekeepers did not have in mind the Russian soldiers or the implementation of the Russian concept of "peace" in the Donbass ", - notes in particular it.

According to the expert, "the UN Security Council, as well as the organization as a whole, have become hostages of the national interests of individual countries." "Moreover, Ukraine is the most striking, but not the only example of the failure of the UN to appease the aggressor and to reason. Recall the Russian aggression in Georgia. Recall the Iraq adventure US declaration of independence of Kosovo, and so on and so forth. Examples are more than enough" - said Filipchuk.

Also, he said, "the theme of the need to reform the organization will remain relevant even after the settlement of the conflict in the Donbass. The UN should be the only organization that is able to vary, including military means to restore peace and to punish the aggressor. And for this to be developed new and equitable principles of functioning of the organization, along with more effective mechanisms of realization of decisions made. "

"Discussions on the reform of the UN have been conducted for over 20 years. Many experts talked about the need for changes in the principles of the organization even after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Cold War. At the end of the 1990s, the United Nations called an organization that does not meet the realities of the time, and conflicts the Middle East, Africa, the former Yugoslavia, Georgia, and now in Ukraine only became a case in point. Therefore, the reform of the United Nations is needed, and today Ukraine has all the moral and political reasons to become the initiator and leader of the process. At the heart of the proposals should be have new ideas reformatting of the Security Council on the principles of democracy, justice, transparency and proportionality contribution to strengthening the country (or vice versa - to the destruction) of international security ", - the expert believes.

He also named three possible ways of re-formatting of the organization:


- T ransformatsiya UN more democratic and equitable organization. This scenario, in particular, involves the abolition of the veto and the status of "permanent member" of the Security Council. Thus, any decision taken in the Security Council will be supported by two thirds of votes, ie 10 out of 15 members.

- Conservation status of "permanent member" of the Security Council during the constant rotation in this category. Changing countries, according to this scenario should take place on the basis of geographical origin: the mandate of the five permanent members of the Security Council must move from one continent to another representative. At the same principles and mechanisms of the rule of change is still to be worked out.

- Rotation and granting the status of a permanent member of the Security Council, based on the specific role of the state in the international arena. That is, it should be a country whose contribution to the international aid, sending peacekeepers and security support in conflicts is greatest. Using these criteria Russia can not become a permanent member of the Security Council, and it can take place, countries such as Japan or India.

"To implement such initiatives is not easy. Under the existing rules, to change the charter of the United Nations needs the support of the relevant ideas not only from the 2/3 of representatives of the General Assembly, but its ratification by countries constant governmental members of the Security Council. Thus, without the consent of all of the Russia is the implementation of this idea is almost impossible. However, history knows examples where, despite the position of "great powers", including members of the Security Council, the position of the majority of countries still prevailed. An example of this can be called an institution in 1998 International Criminal Court, which is not supported by neither the US nor the Russian Federation. In spite of the opinion of those States, with the support of the European Union and many other countries, the idea of the Rome Statute is gaining greater credibility.

Therefore, despite the possible resistance of the permanent members of the Security Council, the rational idea of ​​UN reform should be discussed. The initiator of this process could be Ukraine. Our state has set a precedent by giving up nuclear weapons and later becoming a victim of foreign aggression. Therefore, the leadership of the country has the moral right to speak with its own idea. That, at least, will actively debate and become another element of pressure on Russia ", - said the author.

As Ukraine does not allow the new Crimea and Donbas: Three variants of pressure on Russia (RE: United Nations)

Post by Admin on Thu Jun 11, 2015 10:29 pm

The organization has more than twenty years, does not correspond to the realities of world order

Russia unleashed war in the Donbas and Crimea illegal incorporation into the Russian Federation became clear confirmation of the ineffectiveness of the existing system of international security. Responsible for the world order, the United Nations (UN) has been unable to adequately counter the imperialist ambitions of them, Vladimir Putin, and in need of reform. The restructuring of the United Nations should be held in the near future, and based on the principles of democracy, equity and efficiency.

The current visit of the US Permanent Representative to the United Nations Samantha Power in Ukraine is another expression of support from the West, which, since the annexation of the Crimea remained on the side of our state. US and European officials have repeatedly expressed "deep concern" over Russia's actions and commitment to democratic values, the rule of law and the inviolability of Ukrainian borders. However, in addition to the imposition of economic sanctions and political pressure on the Russian Federation, the international community, in fact, no real instruments of influence on the aggressor country.

The UN created, in fact, to prevent violent conflicts, it was powerless in this situation because of outdated mechanisms. The vision of the principles of a global universe of 70 years ago is not only morally and politically out of date and does not meet modern realities, but more importantly - are not able to solve the most important contemporary problems. The UN has no alternative in the modern international legal order, but some of its mechanisms and structures are in urgent need of revision. It is enough to have an example of that, if the aggressor country is a permanent member of the Security Council (SC) of the organization, it can violate international law with impunity, take the opportunity to veto any decision of that body. And this right, as the experience of recent events, the Russian side has enjoyed quite willingly. Among other things, because of the veto of the Russian Federation in March last year, the Security Council failed to adopt a resolution on the illegitimacy of the referendum in the Crimea, and in the fall - the condemnation of the "elections" in the so-called LC and DNR. For this reason, the initiative of the Ukrainian authorities on the introduction of Donbass UN peacekeeping force is also practically impossible, unless, of course, under the peacekeepers did not have in mind the Russian soldiers or the implementation of the Russian concept of "peace" in the Donbass.

Thus, the UN Security Council, as well as the organization as a whole, have become hostages of the national interests of individual countries. Moreover, Ukraine is the most striking, but not the only example of the failure of the UN to appease the aggressor and to reason. Recall the Russian aggression in Georgia. Recall the US Iraq adventure, the proclamation of independence of Kosovo, and so on and so forth. Examples are more than enough. Therefore, the theme of the need to reform the organization will remain relevant even after the settlement of the conflict in the Donbas. The UN should be the only organization that is able to vary, including military means to restore peace and to punish the aggressor. And for this to be developed a new, equitable principles of functioning of the organization, along with more effective mechanisms of realization of decisions taken.

It should be noted that such discussions on the reform of the UN have been conducted for over 20 years. Many experts have talked about the need for changes in the principles of the organization even after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Cold War. Already in the late 1990s, the United Nations called an organization that does not meet the realities of the time, and the conflicts in the Middle East, Africa, the former Yugoslavia, Georgia, and now in Ukraine only became a case in point.

Therefore, reform of the United Nations is needed, and today Ukraine has all the moral and political reasons to become the initiator and leader of this process. At the heart of the proposals should be new ideas reformatted Notices of the Security Council on the principles of democracy, justice, transparency and proportsionalnos minute contribution to the strengthening of the country (or vice versa - to the destruction of) international security. The international community can offer at least three options for reform of the Security Council.

The first - is the transformation of the UN into a more democratic and equitable organization. This scenario, in particular, involves the abolition of the veto and the status of "permanent member" of the Security Council. Thus, any decision taken in the Security Council will be supported by two thirds of votes, ie 10 out of 15 members.

The second option - the preservation of the status of "permanent member" of the Security Council during the constant rotation in this category. Changing countries, according to this scenario should take place for the principle of geographical origin: the mandate of the five permanent members of the Security Council must move from one continent to another representative. At the same principles and mechanisms of the rule of change is still to be worked out.

A third option is also based on the principle of rotation, but it provides for permanent membership of the Security Council, on the basis of a specific role in the international arena. That is, it should be a country whose contribution to the international aid, sending peacekeepers and security support in conflicts is greatest. Using these criteria Russia can not become a permanent member of the Security Council, and it can take place, countries such as Japan or India.

However, to implement such initiatives is not easy. Under existing rules, to change the charter of the United Nations needs the support of the relevant ideas not only from the 2/3 of representatives of the General Assembly, but also its ratification of countries constant governmental members of the Security Council. Thus, without the consent of the same Russian implementation of this idea is almost impossible.
