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".

It is the creation of incentives for the Crimean people either have freedom of movement, the democratic right to live in Ukraine, freedom of investment, easy and free to do business and a number of other advantages, or sit in the occupied Crimea without the right to receive visits, limits employment, relocation, investment, "- he added.

MP from the Radical Party, Oleg Lyashko admitted that previously suffered from gambling. This he said on the TV channel «112.ua».

"I really played. I lost a lot of money. All my salary I was making - I lost and won. And then when I became a member in 2006, I felt ashamed that I am a parliamentarian and go play, and I'm tied to this. Moreover, in 2008, I learned a lot about the tragedies associated with it, because I saw people there who lost an apartment and I have made sure that the law was denied, "- said the politician.
