The records of the "Inter-ministerial Commission for the Provision of Humanitarian Aid for the affected Areas in the Southeast of the Regions of Donetsk and Luhansk" from October 23, 2015 reveal what observers have long feared: The Russian government is steering all affairs of the "separatist areas" in the east of Ukraine, Germany's BILD newspaper reported on Wednesday, with reference to the documents obtained....

The commission, which an insider referred to as "shadow government of the Donbas" while talking to BILD, includes Dmitry Kozak, Deputy Prime Minister of Russia and close friend of Vladimir Putin; Deputy Minister for Economic Development Sergey Nazarov, Deputy Minister of Finance Leonid Gornin. The secret service "FSB" has supervision over each working group.
As the sole Ukrainian, a representative of the Ukrainian energy giant DTEK owned by the oligarch Rinat Akhmetov was present at the meeting in October last year, according to the record.......
As BILD has found out, regular meetings of the Commission were actually held at intervals of two to four weeks. But nothing was known about their content – until now.....

What she says here is different from what she said a few days' ago.
She was talking about reducing the price of gas and electricity for everybody. And the hryvnia also back to the old Soviet days.
Good for electioneering -
Free gas for all. Free electricity. 8 hryvnia to a dollar.
Tymoshenko - the ultimate survivor, populist, billionaire, and politician.
====
Aside -
I had some visitors last weekend. One was chatting on Skype with his laptop - with his friends. Two teenagers.
His friends were sat together - in shorts.... yes... that is all. Just shorts.
Where, is western Europe do you sit in shorts when it is 5C outside? Ukraine. Soviet heating mentality. Things need to change.

At the Donetsk direction, Avdiivka is the only settlement where such an inhuman weapon is employed.

Plus and minus.
Liashko is a complete and utter clown. Real nutcase. As a speaker he would have everybody laughing.

Putin’s dilemma: Why pushing back against NATO “encroachment” makes Russia’s NATO problem worse

Post by Nelson on Wed Mar 30, 2016 7:50 am

http://eurasiangeopolitics.com/2016/03/29/putins-dilemma-why-pushing-back-against-nato-encroachment-makes-russias-nato-problem-worse/
...One reason why Moscow’s long-term security outlook vis-à-vis the West is likely to deteriorate in the coming years is obvious: the Russian economy is trouble. That was true before the Ukraine crisis, the collapse in oil prices, and the imposition of Western sanctions made the country’s economic travails even worse....
[ending] ....some kind of compromise between Kyiv and Moscow over the status of Crimea.....

====
Idiot. Like Chamberlain with Hitler. Peace in our time. Idiot.
"some kind of compromise"  - with a Russian occupation???!
Author is some American university prat who doesn't understand history..
And also doesn't have the vaguest idea what Ukraine has gone through to simply get to where it is now.
One short lesson for this prathead goofball -
1939 - Hitler invades Poland. America - mmm.. does nothing. Leaves UK alone to fight against Hitler.
1940 - Hitler fights on. Invades other countries. America does ... mmm... nothing...
1941.... America does... mmmm ...  nothing.
1942 - Pearl Harbor... oh dear me.... What has happened?
"Oh dear me. We can't do nothing now. ."

"Oh say - does that star-spangled White flag still wave...
O'er the land of the free and the home of the wimps". This guy's real national anthem.
Let's all hope the people in Congress and the White House are not so stupid this time round. Prevention is better than cure.

A nice photo - actually taken yesterday - which cleverly represents American foreign policy in 1939.
Yes - the guy on the left is the Air Egypt hijacker. Note the suicide belt. The guy on the right - an idiot. What a photo!

US accuses Russia of dismantling security agreements

Post by Admin on Wed Mar 30, 2016 10:34 am

Russia is “slowly but surely” dismantling the security and arms control agreements that were put in place in Europe at the end of the Cold War, according to a senior US state department official.

Speaking ahead of a major international nuclear security summit in Washington this week that Russian leaders are boycotting, Frank Rose, assistant secretary for arms control, said that Russia now saw many of those agreements as a sign of weakness.

“My personal view is that Russia no longer sees value in that architecture put in place at the end of the Cold War,” he said, citing Russia’s withdrawal from a conventional weapons agreement and its alleged testing of medium-range ballistic missiles..................

Odesa judge who was found to be a bribe-taker by NABU attempted suicide, - head of Judicial Council

Post by Admin on Wed Mar 30, 2016 11:48 am

The Judicial Council has announced a suicide attempt by Malynovskyi district of Odesa city judge Oleksii Buran, who is suspected of bribe-taking.

This was announced in the Council's press service statement, Censor.NET informs.

"Head of Judicial Council Valentyna Symonenko is concerned by the fact that during the detention of a judge of the Malynovskyi district court of Odesa, who is a subject of a pre-trial investigation under the criminal proceedings on the grounds of a criminal offense (part 4, article 368 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine - receiving undue gains), the methods and actions of National Anti-Corruption Bureau and National police officers led to a suicide attempt of the suspect," the press service notes.

According to Symonenko, law enforcement agencies, which are often interested in making crime's prevention and investigation a "bright theatrical show," do not care that such actions "concern the fate, health, and life of a person": "Our history already saw similar attitude to a person in the '30s of the last century, therefore, this kind of history repeating in democratic Ukraine is redundant."

"It's a shame that our modern society sees the position of judge as closely connected with corruption and unfair practices," Judicial Council complains.

"I call on all law enforcement officers, judges, court and all judiciary personnel to remember that the honor and dignity of a human being is the cornerstone of the Convention on human rights and the basic feeling of a person living in the society. Neglecting the honor and dignity of another person can lead not only to suffering but also to their death," Symonenko summed up.

On March 29, the NABU reported that the judge of the Malynovskyi district court of Odesa opened fire at law enforcers and escaped during an attempt to apprehend him while accepting a bribe in the amount of 500,000 hryvnia (about $18,500).

They need one price throughout the year.
