And now they have a strategy of war of attrition. It does not involve deep offensive operations, but it involves saving pressure on Ukraine, Ukraine applying maximum resource, financial losses to undermine the capacity of the state and its degradation "- said Butusova. "Contrast this optional strategy can only be a systematic strategy", - he added.   In Ukrainian
Concorde Capital informed clients in an online advisory that, according to Boris Gryzlov, Russia’s new representative to Trilateral Contact Group, the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics must gain permanent special status in the Ukrainian Constitution, rather than expiring in 2017 as previously agreed upon.

Such amendments should be approved by the Contact Group, Gryzlov said.

The same proposal was echoed by leaders of the terrorist groups attending the talks, the report said, without identifying them. They called for securing permanent special status, widely considered to be de facto autonomy, in the body of the Constitution, rather than its transitional statutes, as had been proposed by the Ukrainian side.

Concorde analyst Zenon Zawada added: “So much for the recent drive to forge some kind of a compromise. By this raising of its ante, the Russian side has buried the circulating notions that the recent weeks of negotiations, involving top diplomats, drew the opponents in this conflict closer to agreement. We’re essentially back to Square One in the talks. Moreover, the West will never agree to permanent de facto autonomy for Donbas as its strategy was based on this autonomy failing eventually.”.......................

Ukrainian humanitarian activist Maryna Cherenkova has reportedly been detained by separatist security forces in the eastern city of Donetsk.

Activists with the Responsible Citizens group reported on social media on January 30 that Cherenkova sent a late-night text message that said simply, "I have been taken by MGB," referring to the separatists' "security ministry."

She has not been heard from since despite activists spending the entire night trying to learn of her whereabouts. The activists said police told them they do not have Cherenkova.

Since the conflict between Ukraine and Russia-backed separatists began, Cherenkova has been active in securing humanitarian relief for civilians in the Donetsk conflict zone.

Journalist Oliver Carroll posted on his Twitter feed that Cherenkova is "a larger than life character" who has "been at the forefront of [the] humanitarian effort in Donetsk."

She has been "arguably as important as any international [organization]," he added......

Ha ha ha ha....
And once it was built? Then cut off gas from Ukraine. And the Germans are happy with their cheaper gas from Putin.
Another stitch up, just like when Chancellor Hitler and Tsar Stalin divided Poland up.

BUT there is a lot of German money invested in Russian Gazprom. Especially by one of Chancellor Hitler's successors, Chancellor Schroeder - good close buddy of Putin.
Stinks of German money to me. $$$$$$. Bribes and corruption, and no moral standards.
The gas imports from the European market to Ukraine more than doubled from 5 to 10,3 billion cubic meters in 2015. The number of international vendors of natural gas exceeded 10 companies.....
Less and less from Russia. Good. And a variety of companies. Russia simply can't blackmail them all, although it might try.
I saw 26.0 / 26.5 at the exchange bureau this morning. Euro - I think about 28. Pound - not sure. Theoretically about 36.5.
Ukrainian military zone ATO injured - Lysenko (
In the area of ​​the antiterrorist operation for the past day, no soldier was killed and two were wounded.
This was at the briefing said the speaker on the AP ATO Andrey Lysenko.
"For the past day in the area of ​​anti-terrorist operation, no Ukrainian military was killed, two were wounded," - said Lysenko.
Recall the last day militants fired 38 times strongholds forces ATO.
...location and reason for detention are unknown....
What a headline. You couldn't make it up. Such are the Putin nutcases occupying Donbass.
Petrovskyi is considered to be one of those responsible for the Holodomor in the 1930s in Ukraine. His monument is subject to dismantling as per decommunisation law....
Various videos on youtube - here's one

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko stressed the country is no longer dependent on Russian gas, which is proved by passing the fall-winter heating period. ..
Winter isn't over yet, BUT - we are in the theoretically "coldest" period of the year. Late January, into early February, and... it is amazingly warm.
The forecast looks good for the next week. Lows near zero (normally -9), and highs of 4 or 5, or higher. (normally -2 for Kiev).
Could be interesting.
For sure, Putin's popularity will rise even more with that news. Expect Shaun Walker and Steve Rosenberg to be tweeting ratings of 130% for Putin next week, along with photos of his latest calendar.

In Lviv organizers of the "March in support of political prisoners" have poured pig's blood Roshen store and hung at the entrance of a scarecrow, which, in their opinion, represents the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.
The organizers claim that it would draw attention to what is happening in the country in relation to the patriots....

Half a dozen people in camo-gear.
What it does show - there is democracy and freedom of expression in Ukraine. In Russia these people would be locked up is "hospitals".
On the other hand, it all helps the Putin cause of destabilization. Ukraine has to be careful, especially during a time of war.
One person's "political prisoner" is somebody else's terrorist. Especially if they were involved in the deaths of soldiers at the Rada, or Mukacheva.
You can always rely on the Russians to destroy anything remotely "humanitarian" or civilised. Barbarian nation.
No wonder that election was dodgy!

Good news from the Donbass contrary Minsk blackmail and tantrums.

Rashistskie media and propagandists in the last days crying that Berlin and Paris, with the connivance of Washington is about to please Moscow dozhmut Kiev, and he will take LDNR its software, in fact, leaving the "republic" in the present state ...

The theme of "Minsk" is actually so complex and mean (in the sense that from the Ukraine because of economic weakness does not depend so much) that I did not want to delve in vain. But one thing is clear: as long as it is necessary to wait to hold the front, to prepare for more war and strengthen the blockade LDNR - Russia apparently choking, it increasingly difficult to finance the "republic."

Nothing in the DPR treasury. It's all hand-outs from Putin now, if you ask me. And frankly has been, right from the beginning of the war.

Nice diagram at the link.
Colonies - actually quite a good term. It's not a mis-translation. In the original - колониях "ДНР".
Putin's "empire" - the DNR is effectively one of Russia's colonies. Illegal occupation, of course.
Article, fairly general. Typical sub-human behavior of Putin's followers.
