Judicial system is last obstacle to fight against corruption and crime, prosecutor general says

Post by Admin on Sat May 28, 2016 6:11 am

Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yurii Lutsenko is outraged by the decision of the Mezhove District Court of the Dnipropetrovsk region, which has again returned to the prosecutor's office the indictment against deputy of the Luhansk Regional Council Arsen Klinchaiev suspected of separatism.

As reported by Censor.NET, Spokesperson to the Prosecutor General Larysa Sarhan wrote on Facebook.

"Yuriy Lutsenko urged deputies to consciously approach the issue of voting for amendments to the Constitution and the law on the judicial system to ensure justice," she wrote.

"The amendments to the Constitution as well as the new law on the judicial system and status of judges will lay a sound foundation for screening judges, development of the justice system in the state according to the new standards and will make courts efficient, comprehensible, and most importantly, fair," the prosecutor general expressed confidence.

According to Yurii Lutsenko, it is the amendments to the Constitution that change the "pattern" of justice in the country and create the so-called "triangle of justice" - the court, prosecuting authorities, and advocacy, operating according to international standards and best European practices.

"The judicial system is the last obstacle to the fight against corruption and crime. The prosecuting authorities may initiate tons of new cases, but if they will be closed for money in venal and corrupt courts we will back to square one in our European aspiration," Lutsenko said.

Russian poet Sergey Gandlevskiy: We’re plunging straight into hell!

Post by Admin on Sat May 28, 2016 6:30 am

Article by: Dmytro Volchek
Russian poet Sergey Gandlevskiy was recently arrested in the Moscow metro for tearing down a portrait of Soviet leader Joseph Stalin. Police threatened to punish him for “vandalism and hooliganism”, but eventually released him without drawing up an official protocol. Gandlevskiy believes his action is totally justified as he considers Stalin a criminal.

The poet was denounced by a vigilant citizen. The news of the Gandlevskiy’s arrest has been actively discussed in social networks. He is a bit embarrassed about all the reactions and attention he’s been getting.

– I’m humbled by all the attention… It was a shock reaction on my part…

– Was it a knee-jerk decision?

– Who stops to think in such situations?!

– Tell us something about this portrait.

– It was small, an A4 format. It was really glued onto the wall and I had a hard time ripping it off.

I was immediately accosted by a man of my age who said: “What are you doing?” – “What do you mean” I’m tearing this portrait off the wall!” So, I finally got it off and went to the metro platform. Then I saw the same man and two police officers approaching: “That’s him over there!” I guess he must have looked for them and complained about me. They took me away.”

– How did the officers react? Like that man?

– These officers were simple uneducated fellows. They just sat there and said: “Well, you’re in for it now. We’ve got you for disorderly conduct.” I asked them to address me politely and use the respectful “you” (Вы) form. I realized I was in trouble. I called my friend Varvara Gornostaeva. I don’t know what she said to them, whether it helped or not, but several calls were made… and I was finally released................

Kyiv can regain control over Donbas only through implementing Minsk Agreements - Putin

Post by Admin on Sat May 28, 2016 6:44 am

"The issue of Donbas can be settled - and Mr. Prime Minister [of Greece] has just mentioned this - exclusively through the implementation of the Minsk Agreements, the key element of which is political," Putin said at a press conference following negotiations with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Friday.

Putin so commented on Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko's remark that, after Ukrainian military pilot Nadia Savchenko's return to Ukraine, Kyiv would retake Donbas and Crimea as well.

The amendment of the Ukrainian constitution is the primary objective on this way, Putin said.

"The matter concerns decentralization, as they like to say in Ukraine. By the way, they could use Greece's experience in this as well. The incumbent president formerly served as minister of the interior and decentralization," Putin said.

Ukraine should also pass legislation on amnesty, Putin said.

"How can you hold elections and how can you reintegrate people into government institutions and into the state if they are criminally prosecuted?" he said.....

"I remember in January-February 2014 Bankova , at a meeting with Yanukovych went to famous political figures who allegedly represented the Maidan? Many then expressed dissatisfaction with the negotiations with the dictator, where negotiators from Maidan welcomed by hand with Yanukovych. So, like, there was this brutal beating students "Berkut" force assaults Maidan protesters polyttya ice water, the use of weapons against them, killed and maimed.

These materials may also provide for disclosure of murders and suicides clarify the circumstances, if it was suicide, prominent representatives of the Party of Regions that occurred after the fall of Yanukovich ", - said Trepak.

He suggested that representatives of the current government has not terminated conn bonds with its predecessors because of the "community of business and political projects in which they participated together or even founders they were."
"Ukraine paradox is that its people twice (in 2004 and 2013-2014. - Ed.) actually did the revolution, but logically it is not completed and, over time, allow authorities to re-do his. Advantages Revolution was excluded not last. Undoubtedly, the authorities much has changed, with changed significantly. However, much remains unchanged.

"Russia will indulge in no discussions with anyone on that matter," Putin stressed. "So, let us stop raising this matter over and over again."

UNIAN memo. In March 2014, after the Russian troops invaded Crimea, Russia annexed the Ukrainian peninsula, having organized a sham "referendum" on self-determination.

The self-proclaimed Crimean government said that 96.77% of participating voters had supported Crimea's accession to Russia.

Ukraine designated the Crimean referendum as illegitimate...........

Russia to pursue joint energy projects with European countries if guarantees provided

Post by Admin on Sat May 28, 2016 9:22 am

"We are ready to consider any [energy] projects, regardless of the context of political relations with any country in Europe, with our neighbors. We are ready to implement any project. But we need guarantees in advance. We are not going to buy just words that something is of great mutual interest," Putin said at a press conference in Athens on Friday when asked about the future of South Stream and other joint energy projects with Europe.

"We won't waste money on this," he said.

Russia is determined to proceed with the implementation of the Nord Stream-2 project, Putin said.

"I hope nobody will hamper at least this project," Putin said, adding that Moscow is ready to work "in southern Europe as well."

Putin said he had "just recently signed a memorandum between an Italian-French and Greek company and Gazprom, and our partners are analyzing these opportunities now."

The decision not to implement the South Stream project was not Russia's, Putin said.

"As is well-known, we were determined to implement South Stream across Bulgarian territory. We were stopped from doing that. Under American pressure and under the European Commission's pressure, the Bulgarian government in fact evaded the implementation of this project. After that, we had no choice but to stop this project," Putin said................

Poroshenko told Putin how quickly stop the war in Donbas

Post by Admin on Sat May 28, 2016 9:53 am

The question of the restoration of Ukrainian control over the border is key to the implementation of the Minsk agreements

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko stressed that the issue of restoring control over Ukrainian state border is key to the implementation of the Minsk agreements. He said at the events dedicated to the Day of Frontier Guard of Ukraine.
"Questions borders is key in the context of the implementation of the Minsk agreements," - Poroshenko said, quoted by Interfax-Ukraine.

"Yesterday Putin commented that supposedly we should carry out so-called" political settlement " , hold elections, and then we will engage in ceasefire and the resumption of control (in the Russian-Ukrainian border. - Ed.). It is their understanding of the scenario of elections under Putin barrel commandos. He says "and how to stop them when occasionally they open fire?". Very simply, because the soldiers opened fire Russian regular army and their mercenaries, acting for the Russian team absolutely commanders, "- he said.

Recall yesterday , Putin said that the issue of the war in Donbas remain open until there will be changes to the Constitution of Ukraine regarding decentralization.

Putin should keep his nose out of Ukraine's business, as there were no major issues in eastern Ukraine before the conflict started. He was the instigator, not the Ukrainian government. He couldn't stand that his puppet Yanukbich was removed. He couldn't believe that he was losing Ukraine quickly, with the start of Maidan. Now he's trying to call the shots because he knows the west is backing Ukraine now and the only way he can keep his paws on it is, continue the war and make demands for a country he has no business in. in other words, he's not getting what he thought he would, and it's slipping away fast.

Lenin statues almost all gone, over 320 city names changed, big investments from western sectors, losing big numbers of his own troops from a country that only had 5,000 troops, when this conflict started. He's being made to look like a major loser. He's starting to look like the size he actually is. Because of global pressure he had to give-up Savchenko which was a big defeat.

Only 37% of Russians reported today that agree with his doings and it's shrunk by 21%. I wonder though, what its going to take for the Russians themselves to show him dissatisfaction. They're in a deep hole and continue as if nothing's changed. Way overdue for his own people to do something about him and quick.

This "opposition bloc", "Renaissance" (1 votes - by), "The will of the people" faction HRC "- the in the paper.

"We hope that legislators will certainly re-submit a new bill to parliament.

And the Parliament prefers to have business (crime) as the norm, to continue a Mafia state.

I'm starting to think there might be a need for another Maidan, which I was against recently. Seems the people will have to speak-out again to make the higher ups wake-up that business can't continue as it is.
