Fight Over Churches Reflects Ukraine’s Psychological Split From Russia

on Sat Dec 26, 2015 5:35 am
http://www.wsj.com/articles/fight-over-churches-reflects-ukraines-psychological-split-from-russia-1451079278
....The story of the church in Mali Dmytrovychi, a village of around 200 just south of Kiev, reflects Ukraine’s deepening psychological split from Russia, a rift made wider by a 21-month conflict that most Ukrainians blame on their eastern neighbor.
Russia and Ukraine have centuries of shared history and Russian President Vladimir Putin describes Ukraine as Russia’s “brother nation.” But the conflict, which has cost more than 9,000 lives, has galvanized many Ukrainians to complete the messy divorce started after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991....

Obviously dangerous subversives in Putin's book. No wonder the fascist right wing in France, along with Seamus Milne and Corbyn support Putin's oppression.

Militants preparing another propaganda show in Kominternove

on Sat Dec 26, 2015 11:32 am
The combined Russian-separatist forces continue to mislead the OSCE observers and increasingly undermine the situation in the Donbas conflict zone, the press center of the Anti-Terrorist Operation wrote on Facebook.

"Yesterday, the pro-Russian illegal armed groups returned to the village of Kominternove. They are preparing another propaganda show," the report says.

According to the headquarters, the so-called "leaders of the DPR" are now in the village. In addition, the media have already disinformed that yesterday, the Ukrainian military fired mortars on Kominternove and the village of Vodiane, which is 2.5 km to the south.

"The insinuations are being prepared for Russian journalists, the representatives of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to Ukraine and the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination (JCCC) of the Ceasefire and Stabilization of Parties' Demarcation Line in order to discredit the Armed Forces of Ukraine............

Visa-free travel for eastern Europe, but with a lot of question marks

on Sat Dec 26, 2015 7:47 pm
If everything goes according to the wishes of the European Commission, then the citizens of Georgia and Ukraine will soon no longer require visas for travel within the European Union. However, the EU member states still have to decide. And there, we can see the first signs of resistance. Even before this positive signal from Brussels was announced on December 18, the interior minister of the German state of Bavaria, Joachim Herrmann, had sharply criticized the decision in a newspaper interview. "Instead of repeating the same mistakes that were made for visa requirements for the western Balkan nations, Europe should finally get on with safeguarding the European borders," he told the German daily "Passauer Neue Presse."

The EU Commission has recommended visa-free travel for the citizens of Georgia and Ukraine. But the abolition of visa requirements does not mean immediate unlimited travel.

Republic of Moldova as an example

In Georgia and Ukraine, the signal from the European Union was seen as recognition for the reform efforts in both countries. The year 2014 saw a similar lifting of visa requirements for the first country of the EU's Eastern Partnership: the Republic of Moldova. This decision, even though it came in for its share of criticism as well, had a completely different background: it was not only politicians in Chisinau who were convinced that the Ukraine crisis had accelerated the process.

What's more, 300,000 Moldovans had been granted Romanian citizenship for reasons of the country's history, and were therefore in possession of an EU passport with which they could travel unhindered in the EU and also work there.

For the other citizens of the Republic of Moldova - also for those in the breakaway pro-Russian region of Transnistria – the lifting of visa requirements was a welcome instrument for getting to know Europe directly. And this was another reason why Brussels, despite all the misgivings, relaxed the travel restrictions: Moldova was to be brought closer to the EU. For the citizens, it meant an end to what were often felt to be degrading practices at European consulates in their country. Hours, sometimes even days standing in a queue for a visa, expensive visas on the black market, in some cases corruption – at one stroke, all this belonged to the past.

No 'great freedom'.................
