WEDNESDAY

Please scroll down to view news items added during the course of the day

News -
Reading of near 60 attacks on Ukrainian troops last night.
This is down from the high of 120 on Sunday (Saturday's statistics) when I last reported.
Also reading that two night attacks on Maryinka were repulsed.
Update - tv at lunchtime today, said 8 injured soldiers, 3 very badly injured.

TV news last night, one amazing story about a guy in the armed forces.
He spent 4 days in the ATO zone, did next to nothing, but then came back and applied for, and got "hero" status, so he could retire, and get a good pension.
Others were complaining that they had been in the ATO zone 8 months and got nothing.
Explanation - has to be bribery. massive massive corruption in the Ukrainian armed forces.
The journalists wanted to interview this guy's boss. But the camp said he was away on business - even though his car was there.
Then the next day when they returned they were met by a lawyer. .... Say no more. The stink of corruption and lies.
The result of 22 years of corruption under Kravchuk, Kuchma and the rest

Weather -
After a few days over 30 - near the 90s - it feels a lot cooler now. Near 20 today and tomorrow perhaps.
Travelling back from Vinnitsa many places have had a lot of rain, and that is good. Everywhere it has greened up.
The babushkas are happier for the crops. Many grow food in large areas where it is impractical to carry water.
They are dependent on the rain during the summer.

Discount on Russian gas to Ukraine can be less than 30%-Novak (Ligabusinessinform)
http://biz.liga.net/ekonomika/tek/novosti/3039116-skidka-na-rossiyskiy-gaz-ukraine-mozhet-byt-menshe-30-novak.htm
The head of the Energy Ministry of Russia said that the size of the discount will be determined on the basis of economic feasibility
[Ukraine is Russia's biggest gas market. If they destroy this for another year Gazprom will have serious problems.]
