Revisions to the state budget and tax code are still needed to secure $4 billion in financing from the International Monetary Fund and other Western lenders when parliament reconvenes on January 26, officials say, according to The Kyiv Post.

Jerome Vacher, the IMF’s envoy to Ukraine, said that the budget itself is “consistent with the (IMF) program’s objectives,” The Kyiv Post reported.

However, discussions continue on some remaining issues - notably on structural fiscal reforms that are needed to ensure medium-term fiscal sustainability, Vacher said.

Ukraine's Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko said the IMF is considering not only the adoption of the 2016 budget, “but the execution of all the preliminary conditions and structural benchmarks, the terms of which were scheduled before the end of December 2015, when making its decision about the disbursement of the next tranche.”......

The militants provided accurate fire at the houses of the local residents and then attacked the positions of one of the Ukrainian detachments performing tasks in this area. The Ukrainian soldiers immediately gave battle and rescued locals from the irreversible consequences," the report reads.

It is also reported that according to the Ukrainian intelligence, Kominternove village, which was high-handedly occupied by the invaders despite any agreements, became one of the bases for training subversive and reconnaissance groups of the enemy: "In the near future, the leaders of the militants are going to use these specially trained organized crime groups for further escalation of the conflict, to invite the ATO forces to violate the already uneasy truce, and psych out civilians, who have become hostages of the criminal activity of the Russian-supported thugs."

I trust Germany/Merkel as far as I can throw them. They're not concerned with the well-being of Dombas. They're more concerned about getting the sanctions lifted, in order to relieve their economy and get those Rubbles back into the country, although they're worthless now.

Guaranteed, they'll ask for more autonomy for Dombas terrorist big wigs than the Minsk calls for. They want Ukraine to sellout to them.

To clear the air, here's what Obama meant by "client state" and I saw the speech two times. What the problem is, people don't listen to every word he said. The key word was "were" a client state which many ignored from total ignorance.

United States Department of State has officially commented on Obama's words about Ukraine

The authors of the final Dutch report on the Malaysian Boeing crash have wrongly determined the spatial position of the missile relative to the plane at the impact moment and the site from where the missile was launched, Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsiya) deputy head Oleg Storchevoi said in his formal letter to Dutch Safety Board Chairman Tjibbe Joustra....
===
Not the clearest of translated articles. Mis-translated on purpose? Did somebody working at Interfax miss out "Russian Federation" intentionally??

This is basically Russian propaganda. Storchevoi works for the RUSSIAN Federal Air Transport Agency.
The Russians still trying to say - it was not a Buk missile, and it was launched by Air Force One - personally by Obama on holiday in Turkey... Something like this.
I am sure Shaun Walker can fill in the missing details with the help of his "DNR guys".
Question. Why are the Russians trying to discredit the report? The answer is obvious. And absolutely nobody else is trying to do doing this.

The interfax original here clearly states that the origin of the "story" is from Russia.

Putin wants amnesty from war crimes - obviously important for him. Does this include the Russian soldiers who shot down MH17? Or who shot dead prisoners of war?
