News -
Putin's terrorists attacked 16 times yesterday.
Update - 3 soldiers sadly killed - by a remote-controlled mine. Very deliberate.
After the terrorist attacks in Paris the stock markets are expected to fall somewhat this morning.
Perhaps oil also. We will see.

Weather -
SNOW! The first snow of the winter this morning. Actually, it is not settling much. Temperature is near zero, and should rise to 4 or 5 today. And the same tomorrow.
It was raining a lot overnight. The ground must be really really soggy now. Difficult if Putin decides to advance his tanks suddenly. They will have to stick to the roads.

Mayoral Elections -
I went to one of the election polling stations yesterday. Wow - probably about 12 people on duty, including an armed policeman.
But very very few people. I would say less than one person a minute. Well - in fact I saw 1 person arrive during the 5 minutes I stayed there.
Low turnout.
Klichko in in Kiev. Sadovy in Lviv, as expected. Looks like pro-Russian candidate lost in Dneprpetrovsk. Also good.

Footie -
Hungary qualified last night with a 2-1 win against Norway. 3-1 overall.
Ireland play today, and Ukraine tomorrow.

However, it is too optimistic to believe that additional punitive measures will work to push Mr Putin into more accommodating policies. To date, the sanctions and the collapse of oil revenues have indeed sent the Russian economy into a sharp decline. Consumer goods are scarce. Inflation has risen close to 11 per cent. Yet, Mr Putin enjoys the patriotic support of the people, with his approval rating having risen recently to 89 per cent..................

Vladimir Putin left last year’s G20 meeting in Brisbane early in a huff, tired of being chided by world leaders over Ukraine. Twelve months on, an audience with the Russian president was one of the hottest tickets in town, as western leaders were forced to recognise the road to peace in Syria inevitably runs through Moscow.

Few at the annual summit of world leaders have seen such a transformation in their fortunes, or appeared to enjoy it as much, as Mr Putin moved from a scolded diplomatic outcast to a self-styled problem-solver the west cannot ignore...................

Russia has proposed a restructuring of the $3bn bond owed to it by Ukraine, an about-turn from Moscow’s earlier insistence of full repayment next month.

The move offers a glimmer of hope that Russia and Ukraine can avoid a legal clash over the debt — a threat raised after Russia refused to participate in the $18bn restructuring deal Kiev reached with other creditors a month ago. However, question marks hang over the Russian offer as President Vladimir Putin made clear that he expects the International Monetary Fund to guarantee the debt..............

Pavel Durov, the brain behind Telegram as well as Russia's biggest social networking site VKontakte, also mocked the proposal.
“I propose banning words. There's evidence [to suggest] that they're being used by terrorists to communicate,” he said Monday on his personal VKontakte page.

The Russians would jump at any chance to further stifle freedom of information.
For example, by reason of "terrorism".
"The separatists have repeatedly stated that one of their main task - is to expand the boundaries" LNR "," DNR "to the administrative boundaries of Luhansk and Donetsk regions. One of their main tasks for today - is to push our troops from Donetsk," - added in Defence Defense Ministry.

Renzi - Italian, Fabius - French PM.
Privat Bank has been under quite an attack in the last week. Some journalists speculating that the economy is going to collapse, and that people should take money out of banks and buy apartments ))
Sounds to me like property people trying to get a price increase. And/ or Putin trying to destablize Ukraine's most popular, and nationalistic bank.

Putin's old budget was based on an oil price of 110 dollars. And the revised budget on 50.
Now - Urals will be at about 42. Down another 16%. Which means a loss of about 8% more of Budget revenue.
Keeping the mad dictator in check.
Some veteran defense analysts argue that the modernization project was going to bankrupt Moscow even without the oil price plunge and sanctions.
Get them young, and brainwash them.
Shades of the "Hitler Youth". This from wiki -
The Hitler Youth (Hitlerjugend or HJ in German) was the youth organisation of the Nazi Party in Germany. Its origins dated back to 1922. From 1933 until 1945, it was the sole official youth organisation in Germany and was partially a paramilitary organisation; it was constituted of the Hitlerjugend proper for male youth aged 14 to 18, the Deutsches Jungvolk (German Youth) for younger boys, and the League of German Girls.

It seems to me that Putin is recreating the Soviet Union, but with himself as supreme dictator, in the place of Stalin. Seamus Milne's beloved USSR.

I think Merkel has finally realised that Putin is a nasty piece of Stasi-KGB scum. Manipulative, and revolting.
Obama reportedly reiterated his support for the full implementation of the Minsk agreements, including the withdrawal of heavy weapons, the removal of all foreign fighters, the release of hostages, and the return of the Ukrainian side of the international border to Government of Ukraine control.
Still looks quite divided to me.

Well-known Russian journalist Alexander Nevzorov said the current situation in the Donbass tragic for Russia. According to him, it smells of the defeat of the Russian Federation.

He expressed this opinion in an interview with an apostrophe.

"We're talking about full and unconditional defeat of the so-called" Russian Spring "and" Russian world "in Ukraine.

Everyone is aware that no matter how many people and technology in the thick of it would not have been thrown, the situation can not be overcome, "- he explained.
