TUESDAY

Please scroll down to view news items added during the day

News -
79 attacks by Putin. I would think another record.
Update - saying 3 soldiers injured yesterday.

Rada -
Yatseniuk's resignation presented to the Rada today. Maybe.
And - I would think - Groisman as the new PM. We will see.
But will they get 226 votes?!
UPDATE- Rada in session now at 10.30 am.  But also heard that no vote until at least 1600.
10.30 Lusenko gives list of new cabinet. But Jaresko is not on the list. That's a bit wierd.
2030. Apparently still nothing. No new PM. Deadlock. This is getting beyond a joke, especially now Yatseniuk has resigned.

Weather -
After overnight rain, a lovely morning. High expected of about 20. Pleasant.

Who knows? Could be true, could be bluff. Such is Ukrainian politics.
But I don't think they would have got Yatseniuk to announce his resignation if there had been no new coalition.

Playing right into Tymoshenko's plan.
One aim for her - the Presidency.
The problem I see is Sadovy, the mayor of Lviv. I think he would beat her hands down in a contest.
Even if the Kyiv-Yulia-Post ran another special Kuzio article saying that he was a Jewish oligarch Muslim terrorist Putin sympathizer - or something like that.

Negotiations Poroshenko and Groisman deadlocked - MP

Post by Admin on Tue Apr 12, 2016 10:47 am

MP from the BPP Sergei Leshchenko said that talks on forming a new government have stalled. About this he wrote on his page to Facebook.

"The President and Groisman can not agree, who will appoint the government ministers loyal to him. They'd go: the Ministry of Economy, Ministry of Finance, vice premiership for Kovalchuk, Energy ... The temperature rises, the negotiations reached in a remote angle ", - wrote the MP.

He proposes to terminate negotiations with Groisman and nominate the Minister of Finance Natalia Yaresko the post of prime minister.

"If Groisman does not go, then let us offer the post of prime minister Yaresko! After all, we are not going to believe that the deputies, who began to massively enter the BPP did so under certain joints of the premier Groisman and Deputy Prime Minister Kovalchuk. And we do not think that the first persons of the country have led all citizens by the nose, telling that in his heart ready to support Yaresko, but simply do not have the votes. So my plan B - tear talks with Groisman, who did not attach all Vinnytsia diaspora in the Cabinet, and offer two factions Yaresko for the post of prime minister ", - Leshchenko initiates.

He was confident that "Samopomich" support the candidacy Yaresko and Western partners of Ukraine.

Recall, April 10 Yatsenyuk resigned from the post of head of government.

The BPP announced that April 12 will vote on the new prime minister. The most probable candidate - the current speaker of the VR Vladimir Groisman. He made ​​suggestions on specific candidates for positions in the new Cabinet.

Rada propose to correct the law on the prosecutor's office for the appointment of Lutsenko

Post by Admin on Tue Apr 12, 2016 11:36 am

Representative of the Ukrainian President in the parliament, MP from the "Block Petro Poroshenko," Stepan Stepan Kubiv registered a draft law on amendments to some legislative acts on the activities of the General Prosecutor's Office and the State Bureau of Investigation. The changes allow the claim to the post of prosecutor general person who does not have prosecutorial experience, but having experience in the field of law for at least five years, writes UNIAN .

In Part 3 of Art. 27 of the Law "On Prosecutor's Office" states that "the Attorney General Office of Public Prosecutor of Ukraine may be a citizen of Ukraine, which has experience in the field of law for at least five years. These requirements do not apply to prosecutors specialized anti-corruption prosecutor's office. "

Currently, the law provides that "the Prosecutor General's Office prosecutor may be appointed a citizen of Ukraine, having the experience of work in the prosecutor's office for at least five years."

Also in the article. 40 of the Act to the requirements defined for the appointment of the public prosecutor, it is proposed to remove the items: "Has work experience in the field of law for at least 10 years" and "has a law degree."

The new wording is proposed to determine that the person applying for the post of Attorney General, "has a university degree and work experience in the field of law or experience in legislative and law enforcement agencies of at least five years."

Recall now the main contender for the post of Attorney General is considered the leader of the BPP faction Yuriy Lutsenko. However, for the appointment you want to change the law on the prosecutor's office and to remove the mandatory condition for the existence of legal education for the head of the prosecutor's system.

Read also the article "The Commander" Why is the prosecutor's office needs Lutsenko?

glavcom.ua In Russian/русский

This will bring good news for the fight against corruption, as I recall when Lutsenko was Prosecutor Attorney General, back in the days of Yushchenko administration. The only bad part back then was, he was loyal to tymoshenko which is no longer the case. So if there's a leader that can clamp down on corruption, it'll be Lustenko.

EPH to list stake in Ukraine gas pipeline (Financial Times)

Post by Admin on Tue Apr 12, 2016 1:05 pm

Plan comes as Russia seeks to boost capacity of Nord Stream rival.

EPH, the Czech energy group, is planning to float a stake in the Slovakian pipeline business that supplies one-third of Europe’s gas imports from Russia — despite uncertainty over its future use as Moscow seeks to double the capacity of the rival Nord Stream route across the Baltic to Germany.

On Tuesday, the Czech conglomerate said it intended to list a minority of the shares in Epif, its gas infrastructure arm, which has made its pipeline from Ukraine the largest gas route into the European Union.

Post by Admin on Tue Apr 12, 2016 1:22 pm

Days of horse-trading hamper agreement but Oleksandr Danyliuk emerges as possible finance minister.

Days of tense backroom horse-trading over ministerial posts between members of President Petro Poroshenko’s political camp dimmed hopes that a new government would be swiftly formed to steer the war-torn country out of a months-long political crisis.

Oleksiy Goncharenko, a pro-Poroshenko MP, said on local television on Tuesday evening that if agreement was reached overnight, a vote on Mr Groysman’s premiership and government could come “tomorrow or after tomorrow”.

During the fraught negotiations, some senior officials put forward for top positions raised eyebrows by withdrawing their candidacies and disagreements lingered over key cabinet positions, including the economy and energy ministries....................

My translator isn't working, but the Ukrainian is fairly clear. Crystal clear -
"Президент поставив дедлайн до 18 годин. Завтра ми повинні або провести рішення, або йти на вибори", - йдеться в тексті повідомлення.
Deadline of 18.00 hrs. Well, that's gone. Tomorrow we need to come to a decision... or else elections.
Fair enough. .. I've also heard Thursday mentioned.

Rada Tuesday meeting closed without vote on Yatsenyuk, new Cabinet [Engl]

Post by Nelson on Tue Apr 12, 2016 2:30 pm

http://www.unian.info/politics/1317461-rada-tuesday-meeting-closed-without-vote-on-yatsenyuk-new-cabinet.html
...First Vice Speaker Andriy Parubiy, ... announced that the next meeting was scheduled for 10:00 local time on Wednesday, April 13, ...
...The talks on the new Cabinet have been dragging on as there is disagreement on some ministerial positions....
"But MPs said the new Cabinet would not include [Natalie] Jaresko and some other foreign-born technocrats brought in late in 2014 in the hope that their outsider status and international experience would help Ukraine root out corruption. Her departure could be a disappointment for some of Ukraine's Western allies, who have praised her stewardship of the country's finances amid economic meltdown and a separatist conflict," Reuters wrote on Tuesday evening....

So - back to the drawing board. And try again tomorrow. Or Thursday. Or... elections?! Seems an awful waste of money. After new elections I would think the situation would be even worse!

I think they're pertaining to the position of the PGO head. It seems they might have to change the law, in order for him to qualify. As for PM, I think the other two would be more qualified for that, as compared to Lutsenko.

Re: Ukraine crisis. News in brief. Tuesday 12 April [Ukrainian sources]

Post by Gordon on Tue Apr 12, 2016 9:44 pm

I once heard an interview with an old guy from the "All-Russia Research Institute of Medicinal Plants". After a somewhat drawn out half scientific explanation about the work they do on the Lenin cadaver, he said (paraphrasing) "and this process is absolutely, positively, you can be completely reassured, that this process is not, and is not anything like...pickling".
