In Odessa, a Mercedes trying to evade police, crashed into a shop window

Post by Nelson on Mon Feb 22, 2016 1:04 am

http://zik.ua/news/2016/02/22/v_odesi_mercedes_tikayuchy_vid_politsii_vletiv_u_vitrynu_magazynu_674627
In Odessa Mercedes-Benz ML, fleeing from police lost control and flew into the shop
This is the official page in Facebook Patrol Police.
In the police report that Mercedes-Benz ML Gagarin Avenue quickly went in the opposite lane. The crew of the patrol received guidance on this car and began pursuit.
Seeing the flashing light, the driver of Mercedes added speed. Within a minute, lost control, the car flew into the shop.




Apparently both occupants like to "drive fast at night". Signs of intoxication.
Not a bad place to crash - medical supplies, I would think! "MedTechnika" - for "hospitals and home".

Extra - just noticed the shop are doing a special on "Tonometr + Stetoskop".
Blood pressure monitor and stethoscope. 388 hryvnia. Good price. Maybe they wanted to be first in the queue!
I bet the guys' blood pressure was high after that crash!

Why is it that the babushkas are Putin's main supporters? They have no future to think about - only dreams of the past. Why should they dictate to the rest of the people?

Tymoshenko wants elections. If Yatseniuk goes, then there is nobody to replace him. They can fail to agree on anybody. And then Poroshenko has to call elections.

So
Tymoshenko is trying to put pressure on Poroshenko to get rid of Yatseniuk, forcing early elections, and chaos. Because that is in her interests. She wants to be President.
How do I know this? I know people who attend her confidential party meetings. And they all say - priority one is for YT to be President. But first she needs to cause chaos, and then remove Poroshenko.
Poroshenko, on the other hand, wants the Rada to sort out the mess themselves.
What will the Rada do if there is another vote on dismissing Yatseniuk?
Tymoshenko is like a handgrenade in an ammunition depot. I see her as the biggest danger now to stability in Ukraine. More dangerous even than Putin.

Tymoshenko again required to convene the Council to drive Yatsenyuk
Monday, 22 February 2016 15:08
Faction "Batkivshina" requires the President of Ukraine and the Speaker convene an extraordinary session of the Parliament to dismiss the government.
She stated this on Monday at a briefing in Kiev.
"We are now openly and publicly appeal to the President of Ukraine and Verkhovna Rada with one demand - under Article 83 of the Constitution, which states that the extraordinary session of the Verkhovna Rada stated agenda convened solely by the chairman of BP, or at the request of the President of Ukraine", - she said.
"We appeal is under Article 83 of the Constitution immediately convene an extraordinary session of the Verkhovna Rada of only one item on the agenda - a dismissal of Yatsenyuk. There are all grounds and there are all tools", - said Tymoshenko.
"We can, according to the Constitution of Ukraine vote dismissal of Prime Minister of Ukraine, which also entails the resignation of the government", - she added.

===
Tymoshenko sees a glimmer of hope in her desire to become president.
And also puts more pressure onto Poroshenko.
Yatseniuk is unpopular. And Tymoshenko is using this to put pressure on Poroshenko.
The problem for Ukraine - Tymoshenko is only capable of destroying, not creating.

Protests in Kyiv are Kremlin’s provocation

Post by Admin on Mon Feb 22, 2016 11:19 am

As Putin’s plan to separate South Ukraine has failed, Moscow is staging provocations inside Ukraine, this time in Kyiv, political expert Oleksandr Palij writes in Facebook Feb. 22.

That the hitherto unknown persons came to the fore to head ‘the protests’ is a typically Russian way of staging provocations.

As Russia’s military aggression has spluttered out and funding of the rebels and Russian troops in Ukraine is becoming a problem, the Kremlin switched to rocking the boat inside Ukraine. The aggressor is cashing in on the dissatisfaction of Ukrainians caused by the slack fight of corruption and low living standards, Palij says.

The Kremlin is putting its money on rightist radical movements. There are many patriots among their members but there are some who, like puppets on the strings, are guided by Moscow’s agents.  Viktor Medvedchuk is one of them, the expert says.

zik.ua

As I said yesterday that something smelled bad about who was behind this, due to the day/weekend that was used which was a disrespect towards memorializing the Heavenly Hundred. I had a feeling something wasn't right and so did a cohort of mine on Twitter. All just to cause division and destabilization in Ukraine.

€1 billion worth of Russian assets seized in France, - Yukos shareholders

Post by Admin on Mon Feb 22, 2016 5:11 pm

The former majority shareholders of Yukos, seeking to recover $50 billion from Russia pursuant to a decision of the Permanent Court of Arbitration, have revealed the value of Russian assets seized in France in settlement of part of the debt. They estimate it at €1 billion, i.e. about 86 billion rubles.


This is stated in a press release by GML holding company representing the former Yukos shareholders, Censor.NET informs citing DW.

In particular, the frozen assets include money kept on the account of a French VTB subsidiary for the benefit of Russia Today and Goszagransobstvennost (operates Russia's state property abroad). In addition, the debt of the French satellite operator Eutelsat to Russia's Satellite Communications as well as its shares of Eutelsat (3%) have also been arrested.

Moreover, the Yukos shareholders are trying to foreclose on the financial assurance provided by Bank Societe Generale to Rosoboronexport due to the termination of the interstate contract for the supply of Mistral class helicopter carriers.

Moscow disputes the arrests, explaining it by the fact that the assets are not managed directly by the Russian state, that is, they can not be considered sovereign. The hearing in the Paris court is held on Feb. 22.

In Dec. 2015, the former shareholders of Yukos won the seizure of payments by French companies Air France, Arianespace, and Eutelsat to the Russian side as per contracts. In October 2015, a 7.5 percent stake in the European news channel Euronews, owned by Russia's VGTRK state media holding, was arrested in France.

RF is going to submit a request for an observation flight over the US

Post by Admin on Mon Feb 22, 2016 11:36 pm

Russia will submit a request for permission to begin flying reconnaissance aircraft equipped with powerful digital cameras over the United States.

It is reported by Associated Press.

Russia and the US signed an agreement on "open skies", which allows observation flights over the entire territory of all 34 Member States to promote transparency of military activity and assist in the monitoring of arms.

However, US intelligence and military officials are concerned that Russia will use the technique to gather intelligence on the United States.

Russia formally asks for an advisory committee on "Open Skies", which is based in Vienna, to allow for flying aircraft equipped with high-tech sensors over the United States.

This request will put the Obama administration to choose whether to allow Russia to use high-tech equipment in their reconnaissance aircraft at a time when Moscow, according to the latest reports, the State Department is not going to fulfill all its obligations under the contract.

In addition, the request will go to one of the busiest periods of the Russian-American relations since the Cold War.

"This contract is an important component of Russia's ability to collect intelligence information in the territory Spolucheni States," - wrote in a letter at the beginning of this year, the commander of the US Strategic Command, Admiral Cecil Haney.

"In addition to overflights of military facilities, the Russians in the" open skies "can fly and collect data about the important facilities of defense and national security ministries. The damage from the leakage of such data and the cost of its removal is difficult to describe, "- said Haney.

The Treaty obliges each country to grant permission for aerial surveillance over the entire territory of the country, but Russia imposed restrictions on the observations of Moscow, Chechnya and around Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

Russian restrictions also do not allow for observation in the Kaliningrad enclave.
