At night in the zone ATO 3 soldiers killed, 8 injured - Staff
Monday, 30 May 2016 12:37
One day in the area of anti-terrorist operation killed three Ukrainian soldiers 8 more injured.
This at a traditional briefing on Monday, spokesman of the Presidential Administration on ATO Andrei Lysenko.
"During the last day of hostilities three Ukrainian soldiers were killed and 8 were injured. It happened in Donetsk and Mariupol directions", - said the colonel.

Three dead yesterday, five dead the day before.....
I understand that the total number of deaths of Ukrainian military this month is the highest since August last year.
Two thoughts.
Putin is using more and more sophisticated weapons, and more drones, to seek out the defenders of free Europe.
A different thought.
Until recently Ukraine has been under-reporting the number of deaths in order not to alarm the public.
Perhaps now Ukraine is reporting the true figure of dead soldiers each day.
I have little doubt that one or two years ago Ukraine was reporting 2 or 3 soldiers killed, and the true figure was ten or twelve. But this is pure speculation on my part; partly based on the speculation of others. But also talking to some military, or ex-military.
The Donetsk breakaway republic separatists, calling themselves ‘Kharkiv guerillas’ said in the winter of 2014 Kharkiv’s mayor Kernes and oblast council chairman Dobkin supported the separatist movement, one of the separatists says in a video statement he posted on YouTube, Novorosiya information agency says May 30.

 “The separatist movement was organized by Governor Dobkin and Mayor Kernes,” the author said.

At the start of the separatist campaign, there were 6,000 members in the movement, he admitted.

However, security service SBU has arrested many activists and put them behind bars.

The separatist threatened to stage a march in Kharkiv after the victory.

Kernes is still Kharkiv's mayor and Dobkin is oblast council lawmaker.
Savchenko tomorrow will open the meeting of the Verkhovna Rada (RBC-Ukraine)
Parubі said that the current plenary week would be busy
Speech by MP from the faction "Batkivshina" Nadia Savchenko will open the plenary session of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine tomorrow, May 31, 2016. On May 30 during a meeting of the Conciliation Board of the Verkhovna Rada chairman of Parliament Andrew Paruby, RBC-Ukraine reports.

"We have agreed that our session will start tomorrow with a presentation by Nadia Savchenko, our friend, the deputy of the Verkhovna Rada. I think that is a good sign when it is with the high tribune of the country will be able to apply not only to the deputies, but also to all Ukrainians" - said Paruby.
......In the summer of 2004, a group of activists near the city of Saransk made a gruesome discovery: Some 500-700 corpses buried in shallow mass graves in a forest.

They were the bodies of victims of Josef Stalin's Great Terror in the 1930s. According to local historians, the victims were Orthodox priests, Muslim clerics, local teachers, collective farmers, and workers. Their names are unknown because the archives of the Soviet and Russian secret police remain closed....

On May 23, however, a monument was unveiled on the site, one of the few monuments in Russia devoted to "the victims of political repressions during the 1930s." But after a single line noting that fact, the monument's text then dedicates 12 lines to honoring one particular victim of Stalin's Terror: Valter Vand, the former head of the local branch of the NKVD, as the secret police tasked with carrying out executions and many other forms of political repression at the time were known....


You couldn't make it up.
The executioner from the Secret Police gets the big big mention! Only in Russia today.

Update - apologies for posting this again. Just noticed Admin posted it two days ago. But - what a mad place Russia has become.

...This report analyses Russian propaganda and disinformation – here collectively called strategic deception – concerning the conflict in Ukraine. The strategic deception is not exclusively a Russian term, but it does capture what we think is an essential feature of the current Russian foreign and security policy. It is driven by attempts to put the adversary into a defensive posture and off balance, and thus, to create conditions for surprise.

The methods utilized in contemporary Russian strategic deception are partly the same that were already used in Soviet propaganda. But where Soviet propaganda was anchored in ideological truth claims, the contemporary Russian variant can be compared to a kaleidoscope: a light piercing through it is instantly transformed into multiple versions of reality.

The main purpose of this report is to examine in detail the emergence and evolution of Russian metanarratives and the terms of distraction about the conflict in Ukraine, and on the basis of this analysis to ascertain the main policy objectives of Russian strategic deception inside Russia and in selected countries of the European Union....

....Jeremy Corbyn’s hard-Left spin chief censored a Labour document on the EU referendum to remove all references to Russian aggression.
The Mail on Sunday has been told that Seumas Milne, the pro-Kremlin head of communications for the Labour leader, became angry when he saw a briefing note which had been prepared for the party’s MPs telling them what ‘lines to take’ on the debate.....
Mr Milne declined to comment....


For more on scumball Milne read our sticky topic, "Journalists reporting on Ukraine: the good, the bad and the ugly".
The British Labour Party hates Ukraine, and hates freedom. Such is life now under Stalinist Milne in the British Labour Party. Nutters.

....Other reports on channels such as Novorossia TV and Radio Free Novorossia highlight true, but unflattering, news about the Ukrainian government, particularly corruption accusations from the International Monetary Fund or the European Union. Novorossia TV and Radio Free Novorossia didn’t respond to a request for comment. Ukrainian officials say they are working on addressing concerns but add that pro-separatist stations exaggerate the problem.

One common theme from the separatist broadcasting is that the Ukraine government does nothing while its soldiers sit in the mud on the front lines.

“If I watch or listen to it for an hour or two, it hits you in the head,” said Lt. Col. Oleksandr Vasylenko. “Whether you want it to or not, it just influences you. Even though you know it is propaganda.”....

Good quote.
The Greeks are absolute 100% utter scum.
Like Marine Le Pen, the French Fascist party leader.
The Greek ultra left neo-communists love a good fascist like Putin.
Boycott all Greek goods.
...An account of modern Russia, which in its investigation into media manipulation is “absolutely in [George] Orwell’s own tradition” has won the UK’s most prestigious prize for political writing, the Orwell prize for books.
Chair of judges for the prize Lord William Waldegrave compared Arkady Ostrovsky’s The Invention of Russia to George Orwell’s novels Nineteen Eighty-Four and Animal Farm, saying that Ostrovsky’s non-fiction title was “absolutely about the central themes that Orwell is most famous of all for … the importance of language, and how he or she who controls the language, controls the narrative. And although there are many strong and brave liberal voices in Russia, if you get control of social and traditional media, you’ve gone a long way to controlling the message.”....


Sounds like a book we all need to read.
....It goes about the withdrawal of occupation troops from the entire Ukrainian territory, restoration of Ukrainian control over the border and deployment of the OSCE armed police mission for preventing the supply of new units of Russian troops, ammunition and mercenaries....

Correct. Putin will never agree with this.
Putin wants Shaun Walker elections - elections held at the point of a Russian Kalishnikov. Or 10,000 of them. Putin elections.
But to retain its sovereignty in non-occupied areas Ukraine has no choice. If Putin gets political control in part of Ukraine, then the Yanukovich types will return, and so will de-facto Russian control over all of Ukraine. Currently Putin only controls occupied Crimea and Donbass.
