According to a resident of Donetsk, a public figure, Boris Kudla, power in Kiev makes such steps that discourage supporters of Ukraine's remaining in the Donbas.

More than half of the inhabitants of Donetsk do not support any "DNI", nor Ukraine, said a resident of Donetsk, a public figure, Boris Kudlay. He said this in a comment edition of "Gordon".

"In Donetsk, about 20-30% - supporters of Ukraine, about 10-15% - very active supporters of Russia who have no common sense, and they do not hear any arguments. The rest - I doubt it. People are starting to say," We do not and for those not for these. We - for the world. "In view of the lack of information, people can make an objective picture, make up your mind, and look bad in the eyes of the neighbors, too, do not want," - said the activist.

According to him, the authorities and the public in Ukraine, spreading the idea of ​​the inferiority of Donbass.

"I have the impression that the Ukrainian government is interested in the conflict developed, and especially doing everything to his supporters left the Donbas, alienate Ukraine. The simplest example - access mode. Open any social network and see that very many so-called "vyshivatnikov" support the idea that the Donbass to wall out there that people do not have such, there are enemies and that they need to fight. I am sure that the authorities and this policy is supported by: the idea is not refuted, and on the contrary, maintained and exaggerated from one edition to another, "- said Kudlay.

According to him, even some representatives of Donbass in parliament have refused to defend the interests of the region.

"I was recently at a" round table ", and I was very surprised there Donetsk deputy Yegor Firsov. He began to indirectly defend the view that the Donbass some not so. But MPs must defend the interests of the region. But for whatever they reason supports the idea that the Donbass some not so, it is necessary to protect or something to do with it. And I think that all people are the same everywhere and all the values ​​are the same - health, family, children. Basic differences no. All the differences flimsy - linguistic, mental, "- said Kudlay.

According to him, there are no significant differences between the residents of Donbass and other regions of Ukraine.

"I think it is necessary to promote the idea that people in different regions of the same and want the same, to communicate more. Many people say:" We - the patriots, and in the Donbass - not patriots. "In my opinion, the true patriots of Ukraine - just because Donbass. Those who are under the influence of negative factors still stand by my opinion and were patriots. To be a patriot somewhere in the Ivano-Frankivsk and Lviv region is very easy, because all around are the same all the support you. And to be under the influence of a patriot negative factors much more difficult, "- said the activist.

He believes that because of such factors as economic blockade, access control and the absence of social payments, many people in the Donbas are in distress.

"We have suppressed a separate area. In the Donets Basin a lot of ordinary, normal people. Many senior citizens that range, there are patriots, there are different people. Of these, not all of last year came out to protest in support of Russia. Many people now say, they say, left then - now they are enemies. The ships were not any yet, so they are not enemies, and expressed their point of view. And the people behind this fence. The economic blockade maintained by the government. Did admission, limited social benefits. Because of three factors - economic blockade, access mode, the lack of social payments - people have no means of livelihood. In fact, people deprived of civil rights, and then pulled under this legislation. We have created the factors that contribute to the physical destruction "of Donetsk." People simply did not release, were herded into a stall and look what happened to them to happen. People suffer and die. We do not know the statistics, but many die. All of this gives me a reason to talk about the genocide, but rather, donbassotside from the Ukrainian authorities ", - said the activist.

In Donetsk, which is under the control of an illegal organization "DNI", the so-called "House of Government" On June 15 it held a spontaneous rally. Most of the participants - residents of Oktyabrsky district, which is adjacent to the airport and is one of the most shelled the city. The protesters blocked the street Artem. Uniform Requirements were not. There were shouts: "Give us a house, we broke the house!", "Get out of everything." На Русском

Also, according to the Russian president, Ukraine must adopt a law on local self-government and the holding of elections and the lifting of the economic blockade of the territories, "DNR" and "LC".

Ukraine’s parliament rejects budget resolution for 2016 [also in English]

]I don't often look at the Kyivpost, because they are always kissing Yulia Tymoshenko's butt. Why? I have no idea.
Many people call it the "Yulia Post".
And personally, I hold her responsible for all the deaths now.
She betrayed the Orange Revolution, putting Yanukovich in power.
that aside, this is not a bad article.
Apparently the total budget for Ukraine - proposed is about one-third of that for the city of New York.
And New York does not have a war to fight against Putin.

Russia's problems are related to the policy of Putin on Ukraine – Munich Security Conference (UNN)
The General Staff of the Russian Federation has drawn up a plan to occupy left-bank Ukraine up to the eastern banks of the River Dnipro, advisor to the Interior Ministry Anton Herashchenko wrote on his Facebook page on Tuesday.

"In April 2015, the General Staff of the Russian Federation approved another working plan for the occupation of left-bank Ukraine. The meeting on the approval of this plan was held on April 8-9 in St. Petersburg, in the headquarters of the Western Military District," he said.

According to Herashchenko, only 15 days are necessary to occupy the whole left-bank Ukraine in accordance with the plan of the General Staff of the Russian Federation. The main goal is to rapidly gain control over the territories and communications, without the seizure of large cities or regional centers.

"In accordance with the plan, battalion tactical groups of the Russian regular army, united in a group of troops called ‘Sever’ (North) would invade the territory of Ukraine in two stages – first in Kharkiv and Donetsk regions, and then in Poltava, Kyiv and Chernihiv regions," Herashchenko said.

By force of habit, the invasion is planned to be disguised under the attacks of the fighters of the DPR and LPR militant organizations, who have gained strength and want to restore the constitutional order in Ukraine, without the return of Viktor Yanukovych.........................

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has described the provision of IMF loans to Ukraine as "large-scale theft".

He wrote this on his Facebook page on Tuesday.

"If a $3 billion sovereign loan received by Ukraine from Russia is a bribe according to Poroshenko, then the billions negotiated by Ukrainian leadership with the IMF is the organization of a large-scale theft," Medvedev wrote.

The Russian Prime Minister reacted in such a way in response to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko's statement that Russia's loan worth $3 billion was a bribe to ousted former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych's regime in exchange for Ukraine's refusal to sign the Association Agreement.

"In my personal opinion, it was a bribe. But I think that Ukraine will demonstrate responsibility in this matter," Poroshenko said, responding to a question of whether Ukraine will return the money to Russia...............

They just can't stand that the west is defeating what they've been trying to do for years, not only during this current conflict. They wanted Ukraine to bend to their demands, in order to survive, but not matter what they're doing, the west is assisting Ukraine.

Ukraine will not fall, which is what the Kremlin wanted. They're pissed off that it's not working. Medvedev normally doesn't say much, as he's just a puppet. So if he's saying this, they must be highly upset and the level of the assistance is getting.

Don't you love it!!!

DONETSK, Ukraine -- At least 500 people have held a rare antiwar protest in the rebel stronghold of Donetsk, Ukraine, calling on separatists to remove rocket launchers from residential neighborhoods where they provoke fire from government troops.

The June 15 rally outside the offices of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DNR) seemed to reflect frustration with the separatist authorities, as well as fear and fatigue over a conflict that has killed thousands of civilians since it erupted in April 2014.

Voicing an array of demands ranging from peace to pension payments, protesters said rocket launchers fired by rebel forces from the city put the lives of its residents at risk of shelling by Ukrainian government forces. Some accused the rebels of using civilians as human shields.

"You are hiding behind our backs," the news agency AFP quoted residents as shouting. Others chanted "Shame!" and "Stop the War!" or criticized the separatist leadership.......................

Radical Party faction leader Oleh Liashko demands that Prime Minister Yatseniuk immediately sacks Ecology Minister Ihor Shevchenko and Prosecutor General brings criminal charges and takes the Minister to court for corrupted activities.

Liashko voiced his stance at the Parliament on Tuesday, Censor.NET reports.

According to Liashko, Shevchenko traveled to Europe recently by private plane of former Party of Regions member Onyshchenko. "On June 6, 2015, Shevchenko took off from Zhuliany airport [in Kyiv - ed.] to Dresden by a private plane, registered in Turkey, with a diplomatic passport. He returned to Ukraine on June 8 by the same private plane, but this time from Nice, France. The plane ID is PHARO. It is owned by MP Onyshchenko.

"I have a question to my colleague Onyshchenko regarding how come that Ecology Minister Shevchenko took your personal plane from Nice to Kyiv? Who paid for the flight? I demand that Prosecutor General brings criminal charges for corrupted activities conducted by Ecology Minister. For your information, MP Onyshchenko is linked to gas industry, which is within Ecology Ministry responsibility, thus there exists a corrupted connection between Onyshchenko and Shevchenko. So I demand that the Prosecutor General brings criminal charges and immediately arrests Shevchenko," Liashko said.

The deputy also addressed Prime Minister Yatseniuk regarding immediate dismissal of Shevchenko from his minister position. According to Liashko, the man 'who flies to Monacos and Nices' while the country is experiencing an ecologic catastrophe shall not occupy such position. "Out of the chair, rascal!" the deputy said.
