The Russian delegation to the UN blocked at the last minute on Friday the adoption of Security Council draft statement to the press about attacks on refugee camps in the north of Syria.

This was announced by Ukraine's Permanent Mission to the UN, Censor.NET reports referring to Ukrinform.

Россия перебросила на Донбасс чеченцев и танки
Afraid my translator isn't working, but this headline I can just about translate at sight.
Photo at link.
Continuing the pattern of harrassment of the Crimean population by the Russian occupiers.
May 09 is Victory Day.
Today - May 07 - Maidan is closed to traffic. To be honest, fairly quiet, due to earlier quite heavy rain.
But setting up stages in various places, Kreshatik, near the Philharmonia, for the festivities.
We'll see what happens. Hopefully nothing significant!

Hit a mine -

....After receiving medical aid, the servicemen returned to their unit, he said.
No shooting has been recorded in the Luhansk sector over the past 24 hours, he said.
Low-intensity fighting is continuing in the Donetsk sector, he said.
The militia "are provoking Ukrainian servicemen into returning fire near Avdiyivka by shelling their positions with grenade launchers and firearms. The enemy also violated the ceasefire near the Svitlodar water reservoir and the Donetsk airport," Lysenko said.
The situation in the Mariupol sector has somewhat stabilized, he said.
"The enemy has not used heavy weapons. Brief enemy provocations were recorded in Hranitne, Hnutove, and Shyrokyne," Lysenko said.

...Moreover, given that Russia formally, from the point of view of international law, is still not an occupier and aggressor in relation to Ukraine, it can also take part in all possible peacekeeping missions in the Ukrainian territory, including in the additional OSCE mission. "Russia already has good experience in Abkhazia and Transnistria, where its armed forces have sported "blue helmets," representing some kind of an international mission," he said.

Yaremenko does not rule out that Russia is considering the idea of establishing the OSCE police mission "as an opportunity to legitimize its military presence in Donbas."...
Quite a long read. Not bad.
.....“I stated at the previous meeting of the Trilateral contact group, that discussions concerning elections and political reform must stop until the entire block of security issues is solved… First of all, all items of Minsk agreements must be implemented. Only after that, we can start thinking about elections”, - Kuchma claimed.
According to Kuchma, the “40-thousand army” located in Donbas must be withdrawn and Ukraine must regain control over the border so that the election could be held....

Of course, Putin wants "Shaun Walker" elections - at the point of a gun. His gun.
Turkish Airlines will be able to resume flights to the airports of Dnipropetrovsk and Ivano-Frankivsk [at] the end of May after their runaways have been repaired....
....The proposed changes suggest that the "government day" be held on Mondays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. ...
...According to the data released, April saw prices increased most for natural gas - by 48.4%, fuel and oil - by 5.4%, and railway passenger transport - by 3.3% compared to the previous month
In annual terms, the biggest increase in prices was for hot water and central heating - by 77.7%, electricity - by 56.4%, water supply - by 37.2%.....

Some massive increases here.
The government needs to stop them now. With the fall in gas prices, I would think costs are near enough real to be ok for a year or two.
Gas consumption has fallen massively. And prices have risen massively. And the government is massively unpopular, as one would expect.
The people need to see some benefits of their suffering. Like a visa-free regime. And an increase in business with the west. My opinion.
...The April growth of reserves was primarily due to the purchase by the NBU of foreign currency to smooth excessive fluctuations in the interbank market, reads the report. Thus, the net purchase of foreign currency by the National Bank in the past month amounted to $675.8 million....
Basically good news.
As long as Tymoshenko doesn't get her hands on this money. And send it to Nauru.
