News -
Putin's forces attacked Ukrainians 52 times yesterday.
Sadly - 2 soldiers died. Shelling at Avdeevka.

Weather -
+2 this morning. And more lovely sunshine. Forecast for +10. Looks like the start of Spring ))
Ukraine has survived another winter without Russian gas. Putin's system of blackmail is slowly failing.

Observation -
I've been visiting a member of the Ukrainian armed forces in hospital the last few days.
Looking out of the window of the hospital I've seen the grounds gradually greening up. Looking like Spring.
Also heard some political talk at the hospital that Yatseniuk had agreed to go. But this looks like pure speculation.
Many are not happy with the government. Times are hard, and many prices - gas, electricity - still rising.

Thousands of opposition supporters rallied Sunday in the Georgian capital Tbilisi against the government's controversial plan to purchase natural gas from arch-foe Russia's state-owned energy giant, Gazprom.

"Enough: NATO should stop feeding the trolls Russian!" - Writes in his column for POLITICO Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius.

The head of the Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that for many years the Alliance talked to Russia, as a partner. The basis of this dialogue was the confidence that the Kremlin simply abused. He intimidated his neighbors, and trying to block accession to NATO countries of Central Europe.

"And all this time the Alliance continued to hope for a constructive dialogue with Moscow. NATO agreed to cooperate with Russia in the field of air defense, even after the military aggression in Georgia in 2008, restricting only the abolition of a number of official meetings. This approach is due to the West's belief that any disputes can be resolved at the negotiating table. But this approach needs to be changed ", - writes the Lithuanian diplomat.

Linkevičius notes that NATO should finally understand all the discussion - is just a cover for the aggressor. "Relations between Russia and NATO is now the worst in recent years. But it was not because the governments of democratic countries expressed "deep concern" over Russia's aggression against Ukraine. Bad relations with NATO - and it is a result of the Russian aggression, "- said head of the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry.

Linas Linkevičius also points out that Russia grossly violated international law and the sovereignty of Ukraine, annexing Crimea. "Her tanks still romp through the streets of Donetsk, as well as all Russian bullets kill Ukrainian soldiers defending their homeland" - outraged Lithuanian.

Also, according to him, outside of Ukraine Kremlin continues massive propaganda campaign aimed at the split in NATO and the European Union. And Russia has gone so far as to use for propaganda purposes migration crisis.

"Are these actions correspond to Dmitry Medvedev's statements on willingness to cooperate?" - Asks Linkevičius.

According to the diplomat, a sincere dialogue between Russia and NATO should assume specific actions. For example, Moscow could start with the removal of troops from Donbass and transmission control borders Ukraine. Also, according to Linkevičius, Russia should return the Crimea.

"It will not happen overnight. But Russia must take the first steps to prove that she really wants a constructive dialogue ", - believes Linkevičius.

Lithuanian Minister sure: if Vladimir Putin met principled position of the West in the Crimea, the residents of Lugansk and Donetsk regions would not have to live in conditions of war.

"In relations with Russia, the West must start from the fact that Moscow does, not what it says" - sums up Lynas Linkevičius. In Russian

Yatsenyuk reminded how important it is "time to go"
Saturday, March 5, 2016, 23:02
Ukraine needs a complete "reboot": notorious resignation of ministers and the Attorney General, deprivation of deputy mandates "gray cardinal" and change the prime minister who had lost the support of parliament, society and foreign investors.
This was stated by MP from the MFP Sergei Leshchenko in his blog on the Ukrainian Pravda.
According to him, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk is not a sufficient counterweight to President Poroshenko in curbing corruption: "The system of checks and balances in Ukraine is not working, and law enforcement agencies fully involved in the process of achieving political goals."
"In Ukraine Yatsenyuk and Poroshenko are not opponents. They essentially represent a party ... Instead of checks Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk just joined the conspiracy, corruption flows dividing and dividing spheres of enrichment," - said the MP....

Yatseniuk - I think being chosen by all as the "sacrificial lamb".
He brought in all the changes needed by the EU AA and the IMF. Got the loans. And now - the MPs - and many of the the people, I have to say - want him to go.
But - in all honesty - it will change nothing. Hard decisions still have to be made.
In my opinion Ukraine needs more direct help from the west. Otherwise people will be asking for Yanukovich to come back. Most of the babushkas are already.
