Just like the oppression in Chechnya.
Shaun Walker's "DNR guys" doing whatever they want. Animals. Russians.
I am sure Putin and Lavrov will defend the killing, saying she was a spy or something like that. Shaun Walker will report on the Kremlin version in time for The Guardian, along with Corbyn sidekick, Seumas Milne.

Two Years After Crimea Annexation, Tatars' Resentment Growing [Engl]

Post by Nelson on Thu Mar 10, 2016 1:50 am

http://www.voanews.com/content/two-years-after-annexation-crimea-tatars-resentment-growing/3227991.html
CHONHAR, UKRAINE—
Two years after Russia annexed Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula, resentment is building among the region's Tatars. The Muslim minority group is native to Crimea. But many have been leaving the peninsula, saying Russian authorities are running them out of government jobs and taking away the autonomy that they once enjoyed under Ukrainian rule.

Seeing Moscow again controlling their native Crimea brings ugly memories to Azime Umerova and her husband. They remember 1944 when Soviet leader Josef Stalin deported their families and thousands of other Tatars from the peninsula.

At her home on Ukrainian-controlled territory just a few kilometers from where Russian authorities have established a new international border, Umerova, 77, describes the day Stalin's security forces showed up at her family's house and ordered family members out at gunpoint....

Legitimized Elections: The Kremlin Plays a New Game [Engl; MT]

Post by Nelson on Thu Mar 10, 2016 10:33 am

http://www.themoscowtimes.com/news/article/legitimized-elections-the-kremlin-plays-a-new-game/562021.html
....Among the scattered papers that spilled from the voting boxes, two stacks of ballots, each 1.5 centimeters thick, slid out onto the tables.
Their neatness struck her as strange. They could not have been dropped individually into the box. She pointed the inconsistency out to her colleagues, a group of around 10 mostly bored, middle-aged municipal workers who had been counting elections for years. "Do you see this?" she asked several of them. They ignored her.
She riffled through the papers in the stacks — every one of them was a vote cast for United Russia....
But the administration's goal is to maximize control — over the candidates, the campaign, and the results.
No candidate whom the Kremlin judges a genuine threat is likely to participate. Criminal convictions and investigations have been used to stop well-known figures such as anti-corruption campaigners Alexei Navalny and Leonid Volkov from either standing or campaigning. That threat hangs over all opposition candidates, says Grigory Melkonyants of Golos, an independent election monitor.
Opposition figures face a paradox, says journalist Sergei Parkhomenko, who has been a monitor at previous Russian elections. "The task of an opposition politician is to hide, to disappear — for god's sake not to show themselves — so they aren't noticed and can register. But then they won't have any chance of winning because no-one knows them."...

Amazing headline for a Russian paper. Волшебник уходит, магия остается
Putin replaces the head of the Central Election Commission. Churov was known as the "wizard" because of some of the amazing irregularities in Russian voting - such that they made Yanukovich's turnout of 113% in some areas of Donetsk seem like nothing.
"The magic remains" would indicate that nothing will really change.
Still - wow. A really funny headline that intelligent Russians - if there are any such people left now in Russia - will appreciate.

U.S. President Barack Obama acknowledges that Ukraine is a core Russian interest.
He said this in an interview with The Atlantic, where he spoke about his most difficult foreign policy decisions, Censor.NET reports.
Part of the conversation was dedicated to the Ukrainian issue. Obama argues that Russia will always be able to dominate in the region due to the fact that Ukraine is a core Russian interest but not an American one. ...

http://hvylya.net/news/digest/dosrochnyih-parlamentskih-vyiborov-ne-budet-groysman.html

Most of the parliamentary factions of the Verkhovna Rada do not consider seriously the option of holding an early election and are ready to negotiate the creation of a new coalition, says the speaker of the Ukrainian Parliament Vladimir Groisman.
According to him, members of parliament, for the most part, do not consider a variant organization of early parliamentary elections acceptable, and are willing to seek compromise on the formation of the parliamentary majority in the current composition of Parliament, reports 112.Ukraina.
The speaker also expressed confidence that the new coalition government will be able to effectively solve personnel issues, develop new ideas and general purpose activities.

===
So who does what early elections?
1. The opposition block. Destabilization is the name of the game for Putin and his banda.
2. Tymoshenko and her gang. She wants to be President, whatever, however.

Russian 'Former Fascist' Who Fought With Separatists Says Moscow Unleashed, Orchestrated Ukraine War [engl]

...Throughout his six-month stint with the separatists, he says, he repeatedly encountered Russian military officers....
The battalion commanders in the separatist forces in both the Luhansk and Donetsk regions were "active Russian military officers," he adds.
"Russian advisers are the direct commanders on the ground and create the military rhythm of the whole machine," Rayevsky says....
"I'm warning others now not to participate," he says. "That's the first thing. Second, I am divulging the role of these rah-rah patriotic organizations that are on the Kremlin's payroll so that people don't buy into their propaganda."
Rayevsky says he was aghast at the rampant alcohol abuse and perilous lack of discipline in the separatist ranks....

The Show Trial Must Go On [Engl; rferl]

Post by Nelson on Thu Mar 10, 2016 1:06 pm

http://www.rferl.org/content/the-show-trial-must-go-on/27603183.html
...Russian show trials have convicted Khodorkovsky of stealing oil from himself, Navalny of embezzling money without making a profit, and found Sutyagin guilty of espionage for passing "state secrets" to foreign colleagues that came from newspapers.
And later this month, a court in the Rostov Oblast is widely expected to convict Savchenko of killing two Russian journalists in the Donbas -- even though they were killed after she had already been abducted by pro-Moscow separatists....
the overarching purpose of the whole exercise -- from Sutyagin to Savchenko -- is the same: to show that the Kremlin "has full control of the script" and is the master of reality.
"This absurdity appears to be deliberate," Pomerantsev wrote in a 2013 report for the Legatum Institute. "It proves to the public that the Kremlin can re-imagine reality at will, can say ‘black is white' and ‘white is black' with no one able to contradict."....

Moody`s downgrade ready "Gazprom" ratings and "Rosneft"

Post by Admin on Fri Mar 11, 2016 12:03 am

International rating agency Moody`s has expanded the list of Russian companies whose credit ratings sent to revision with a view to lowering. The new list of 14 companies were state-owned company "Gazprom" (the current rating of the company is at the level of Ba1) and its "daughter" - "Gazprom Neft", "Rosneft" (Ba1) and its "daughter» - Rosneft International Holdings Limited, «Bashneft »(Ba1),« Tatneft »(Ba1),« daughter »« Rosatom »- Uranium One Inc. (Ba3).

In addition to state-owned companies on the list were: "Norilsk Nickel" (Ba1), «LUKoil» (Ba1), NOVATEK (Ba1), «Metalloinvest» (Ba2), «daughter» «Severstal» - Nord Gold (Ba3) and SUEK (Siberian Coal energy company) (Ba1).

This decision was a logical space after Russia's sovereign rating on review for possible downgrade. At present, Russia's credit rating is at the level of Ba1. The release also provides 5 Kazakhstan companies whose credit ratings are also sent to a review with a view to lowering.

The release explains that the decision on the revision is associated with a high degree of participation of the state in these companies, or with the fact that the Company's main assets are located in the countries (Russia and Kazakhstan), who are suffering from the economic crisis.

Rada lawmaker Volodymyr Parasiuk entered the consulate grounds and tore off the Russian flag. He tramped on it and watched how it was burnt by the mob.

The consulate is under heavy police protection March 10.

In Kyiv, the Russian embassy was attacked by activists protesting the biased trial of Savchenko in Russia.

They hurled stones, eggs and bottles with iodine at the embassy building.

According to the polls, Ukrainians do not support attacks on Russia’s diplomatic missions. Experts warn that Moscow may use the attacks as a pretext to start the war on Ukraine.

UN human rights office in Moscow faces closure, - Reuters

Post by Admin on Fri Mar 11, 2016 12:24 am

The Russian government has announced its intention to close the United Nations Office for Human Rights in Moscow.
This was announced by UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al-Hussein, Censor.NET informs citing Reuters.

"I am concerned about signals received from the government regarding its intention to close our presence in Moscow," he said.

According to him, it infringes the space for dissent.

Al-Hussein also pointed out that more cooperation with his office, rather than less, was needed "on the subject of the shrinking space for human rights defenders and non-governmental organizations."

It is noted that the term of detention expired Kalinowski at midnight from Thursday to Friday.

Recall, a break was announced yesterday in the hearing due to the fact that the stepson of Dmitry Firtash Sergei Kalinowski had a seizure.

The son of the former wife of businessman Dmitry Firtash Sergei Kalinowski was arrested on September 29 for the movement in the opposite lane in Darnytskyi district of Kiev. He was elected as a preventive measure in the form of detention for 2 months without the possibility of bail.

An odious slime ball who has caused two deaths when he was 22 years old.

Recall, may 30, 2007, the then 22-year-old Kalinovsky at high speed makes an accident on the Boulevard Shevchenko in Kiev, resulting in the death of warrant officer of the internal troops of Vladimir kulikovskiy, as well as companion Kalinowski Anastasia Bronnikov.

Wonder what his punishment was then?
