...."We want to ensure that elections are held their under Ukrainian laws, after which these territories are reinstated within Ukraine. As soon as a legitimate government, recognized by Kyiv, is installed there, the restoration of economic and political relations will start. We want to help our country to end the conflict in the East, and we are ready to participate in any format that will enable this," Boiko summed up. ...
Where will the money for reconstruction go? Dobkin and Akhmetov's pockets?
Clearly some serious negotiations are underway.
Boiko - Opposition block - formerly Party of Regions - formerly run by Yanukovich, now wanted for murder and embezzlement.
I do not normally recommend anything in the "Yulia Post", but this is independent, and not bad.
...It is not correct to cite that there has been no progress to break up the oligarchies. The government took UkrNafta away from Mr Kolomoisky and have moved it from a $3.4 billion annual loss to a $5.6 billion profit in one year.
The same can be said for the gas industry where Dmytro Firtash’s clever schemes over the resale of domestic gas have been dismantled saving $10 billion a year ...
...As to the comments on who should be the next prime minister frankly it is irrelevant as it is not the government that is preventing reform.
Since this government came to power they have submitted almost 3,000 bills to parliament for changes to legislation… only 300 have been passed....

And his last sentence is biting. Yulia?

..."It will be very difficult for Donbas without Ukraine, and very difficult for Ukraine without Donbas… In my opinion, the only way is to change the Constitution and decentralize the power. This means the power going from Kyiv to the regions, the authorities being elected and not appointed. This means that the local authorities will have to takes responsibility for the present and future of the people."...
"... and very difficult for Ukraine without Donbas…
Boll@cks. Donbass is a complete wasteland now, with all industrial materials stolen and taken to Russia.
Ukraine would frankly be much better off without the Donbass.

...the only way is to ...decentralize the power. This means the power going from Kyiv to the regions, ...This means that the local authorities will have to takes responsibility for ...the people."
For "local authorities" read "Donbass mafia" read "Akhmetov, Dobkin and Kernes." Bandits. The good old days when Akhmetov and Yanukovich ran everything and took all the money. Akhmetov wants to go back, and run his Donbass empire under Putin's wing. But with Ukraine and the EU supplying the money.

Lysenko: Last night two soldiers were killed, one wounded
Saturday, March 12, 2016, 12:42
Two Ukrainian soldiers were killed and one was injured during the last day.
Told AP spokesman for the anti-terrorist operation Andriy Lysenko.
"One died as a result of mortar attack near Avdeevka. Two other soldiers came under fire from enemy infantry fighting vehicles when moving to positions forces ATO near the village Novhorods'ke", - he said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed his readiness to replace militants’ leaders Zakharchenko and Plotnitsky by less odious persons while Poroshenko took interest in establishment of administrations in the “Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics” headed by the people, who would suit both Kyiv and Moscow.

Serhii Rakhmanin wrote in his article for ZN.UA citing own sources, Censor.NET reports.

Apparently, Viktor Medvedchuk has proposed Rinat Akhmetov and Yurii Boiko as candidates to Petro Poroshenko. It is said that the candidates satisfy the president," the article reads.

"According to our information, he held preliminary talks with both of them, and both candidates have allegedly agreed. It is hard to believe (especially in the case of Akhmetov), but the source of ZN.UA insists on reliability of information. Putin was briefed with the proposal, but he has not authorized it yet," Rakhmanin wrote.

According to him, selecting the candidates, Kyiv took the tack that was tried and tested in early 2014 - to appoint oligarchs to govern troublesome "realms" while Moscow considered slightly different factors taking such decisions.

"For example, Putin does not trust Rinat Akhmetov anymore. His confidence was undermined both by Akhmetov's position to act in nobody's favor and positive opinion of Victoria Nuland on the Ukrainian oligarch during U.S. Secretary of State Kerry's summer visit in Sochi. Boiko still enjoys Kremlin's confidence. But is it worth recalling Boiko from the Opposition Bloc taking into account the lack of leaders there? Is it worth to imperil the destiny of the head of the only pro-Russian force in the Ukrainian parliament? Or would it be better to create a foothold in Luhansk for him to return to Kyiv later? What will it cost the Kremlin?" the article reads.

It should be reminded that according to Rakhmanin's previous article, the elections in the "Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics" and their recognition by Kyiv are considered as Russia's main tool to get out of the war in the Donbas with dignity, which will allow Putin to simultaneously maintain control over "DPR"/"LPR" and raise the issue of the lifting of sanctions.   In Ukrainian

As you read, Putin's not the best of friends with Akhmetov. As for Medvedchuk, I trust him less than Akhmetov, as he's more or less from the same click as Yanukobich.

It would be much better to have someone like Akhmetov than Zakharchenko. Akhmetov I would consider the better of two evils. He would be more focused on making all of Ukraine to work as one, as it would increase his overall business interests, instead of separating eastern Ukraine from the rest. As for Zakharchenko, he'd want to divide Ukraine which wouldn't benefit all of Ukraine. Ukraine would have a better chance at unification with Akhmetov than anyone else, unless for election purposes someone better would appear. With Zakharchenko at the helm, the current issue will continue for many years to come and there will be too many pro-Kremlin politicians in eastern Ukraine put in place by the Kremlin.

Seems Putin's finding himself in a quandary that is starting to force him give-up his future plans. Not only giving in to Ukrainian and western demands, but also having to make a deal to release Ukrainian political prisoners like Savchenko, Sentsov and others. A clear sign his plans are failing, this making his future as a force to be concerned with waning away. This is all showing that for one, the west isn't being scared by him and neither is Ukraine. And he's having to cave in which won't bode well for his staunch supporters, this putting a big question mark on his political future.
A member of "Vnesheconombank" offices in New York, Russian citizen Evgeny Buriakov previously convicted of economic espionage for the benefit of the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) of Russia, on Friday, 11 March, admitted his guilt.

Ukraine has stepped up crooks stealing money from bank cards (Internetua)

The German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung comments in your browser Berthold Kohler entitled "subversive war" writes the Kremlin's attempts to undermine the political stability of the EU.

"The formed deep cracks This can only rejoice opponents of the EU and the enemies, especially one of them during the migration crisis in Europe in mutual understanding between EU countries -.. Vladimir Putin Its strategic interest in the European Union weakening until its collapse of the European space of freedom. and well-being - for his counter-fossilized autocracies, because Putin must consider the EU as a constant threat to his rule.

It is not enough create the frozen conflicts in the east of Ukraine, employees of buffer zones between them and the democratic countries where the rule of law. By all means at its disposal the means of disinformation and incitement Putin is trying to undermine the political stability of the EU. Sow and cultivate the differences between the Member States of the European Union - standard operations subversive war waged against the West neochekisty in the Kremlin.

This fact is not disputed even by those politicians who for a long time did not want to accept the return of Russia to the thinking of the Cold War. More surprising, that the issue of EU refugee so divided. Migrants - is another of Putin's arms, at any time he can get hundreds of thousands of people to flee from Syria or Ukraine to the West. How big test would be no migration crisis, just the Baltic countries, Poland, Czech Republic and Hungary can not fail to be aware of the threat from the east. Do they really have forgotten how their freedom and security depend on the loyalty and solidarity of the European Union of their partners? " In Russian

Big business - and all tax free. Long article. Rivne, Volyn, Zhitomir areas particularly.
As of now the most passable candidate to head the government is the speaker Vladimir Groisman.
Such an assessment in the air "on Channel 5," announced the director of the Center of Political Analysis "Penta" Volodymyr Fesenko.
As far as I know, even referring to parliamentary sources, the same evaluation was conducted informal who pass. Most passing candidate - Vladimir Groisman. In this it, say, advantage, its advantages,
- Said the expert.
Meanwhile, the Minister of Finance Natalia Jaresko, according to the analyst, the Deputies have claims. Fesenko said that at least the beginning of February it was passable candidate.
"It is among the MPs concerns about the budget process ... tax reform. But if the candidacy is supported, this is the key, and the President and key factions renewed coalition, then vote for it," - concluded the expert.

I saw a poll in which Groisman got about 2% and Jareshko maybe 40%. She is the clear favorite.
The deputies don't like her because she is not from the Soviet culture of bribery and corruptiion. That is a big problem for them.
With the help of the international community, Russia occupied Crimea Ukraine can be returned within three days, and with just four things.

In an interview with "apostrophe" said the initiator of the civil blockade Crimea Lenur Islyamov
