Economy -
I notice that bond prices have risen in the past few days, and the hryvnia has also strengthened, presumably on news that Jareshko - the US born economist - may become PM. obviously people think she would be good for business. On the other hand, the Soviet brains in the Rada will be frightened, as will the oligarchs with their "protected" interests.

Maybe, maybe simply rumour.
....According to its data, in annual terms (compared to the same period of 2015) this allowed to slow down inflation from 43.3% last year and 40.3% in January to 32.7% - the lowest level since February last year....
So inflation is beginning to fall quite markedly.
In the shops now prices are very stable. The only increases keep coming from the government. Electricity up 25% this month. And gas goes up next month, although people will start using much less as the weather warms up.
That's an interesting idea. Another country that could stop using Russian oil and gas - potentially.
...."This is another proof that mythical 'captured' equipment of Donbas terrorists has quite certain origin. However, the fact that the Russian Federation has long been terror supplier is not new if one looks at the history of its neighboring countries over past 24 years…," authors of the investigation note.
From 2014. Basically, when Putin realised the mercenaries were losing the war he sent in the full Russian army.
A Free Savchenko rally at the Russian consulate in Odesa ended in clashes between activists and police. ...

....In her last plea on Wednesday, Savchenko told the court she would continue refusing food and water and raised her middle finger at the judge and prosecution.....

A Shaun Walker judge, and Shaun Walker prosecution. She does right.
The European Union has decided to extend sanctions for another six months to 146 Russian citizens and 37 Russian companies for violation of the territorial integrity of Ukraine....

Not a bad report, but no major details here.
CR@P report from the BBC, not for the first time.
I presume this is from "reporter" Sarah Rainsford, Moscow resident. No name attacked, not surprisingly. She gives the Moscow position first in the report.
Only later on do you read about her kidnapping. Rainsford sits of the fence, to keep buddy with the Kremlin. Makes me puke.
Typical BBC cr@p. Phrases like -
"She is reported to...", and "She says she was kidnapped.... " Shaun Walker stuff.
The typical British reader will not realise that you could go to Russia as a tourist, spend 5 days looking at art in the Hermitage, and then be charged with spying and locked up for 60 years. That is Russia today.
The Dutch-led team carrying out an inquiry into the destruction of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over eastern Ukraine in July 2014 says it soon should determine the exact launch site of the missile that shot down the plane, killing all 298 people on board...

Normally he loves publicity. But not on this.
