Ukraine crisis. News in brief. Sunday 20 December [Ukrainian sources]

Post by Nelson on Sun Dec 20, 2015 5:41 am

SUNDAY

Please scroll down to view news items added during the course of the day

News -
63 attacks by the Russian forces yesterday.
But luckily AP saying no dead or injured on the Ukrainian side. Slava Ukraini.

Weather -
Amazing. Just went out for a walk. About +7. Cloudy. Like the beginning of November, not the end of December.
Everybody is talking about the weather.

Observation -
Saw several posters - billboards - out on the roads around Kiev saying basically, "Go Yatseniuk".
He is not popular, but who would be? He had no choice. He had to put up the gas prices, and electricity. IMF pressure.
Everybody is gunning for him now.
Who paid for the posters - which party - is not clear. Maybe the Opposition block, or Tymoshenko, or Liashko. Somebody with a lot of money maybe.
But the posters are very basic indeed.
Heard from my friend who works for Batkivshina. Tymoshenko absolutely wants to be President. No other goal.
Even if Ukraine is destroyed, she must be president. That is the message from every Batkivshina hierarchy meeting now.
The beginning and the end. The first and the last. "I must be president".

Address by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko regarding EU’s decision on visa-free regime with Ukraine and prolongation of sectoral sanctions against Russia [Engl]

Post by Nelson on Sun Dec 20, 2015 7:51 am

http://www.president.gov.ua/en/news/zvernennya-prezidenta-ukrayini-z-nagodi-rishen-yevropejskogo-36519
....Together we won the deserved right for the Ukrainian citizens to travel to the EU countries without visas. They will become a reality next year already.
Today’s decision by the European Commission, apart from providing a green light to the introduction of the visa-free regime, is a signal of recognition of Ukrainian reformist efforts, inter alia, in the sphere of justice, struggle against corruption, establishment of new law enforcement bodies etc....
In compliance with my agreement in Brussels, today the European Council started the process of formalization of the decision to prolong sectoral sanctions against the Russian Federation for the next six months, starting from January 31, 2016.
Sanctions will motivate the country-aggressor to implement the Minsk agreements in full, which is key for the achievement of peace and restoration of territorial integrity of Ukraine....

Jack Lew hails end to US foot-dragging on IMF reforms (Financial Times)

Post by Admin on Sun Dec 20, 2015 2:52 pm

It was when Vladimir Putin chided Washington for failing to ratify reforms to the International Monetary Fund that US officials realised their country’s international standing had sunk to a new low.

At the Group of 20 summit in Brisbane last year, the Russian president — virtually a pariah after his military incursions in Ukraine — won allies around the table when he rounded on President Barack Obama for failing to secure US congressional approval for an overhaul giving emerging economies a greater voice in the fund...................
