Donbas to "never" see ceasefire until "political settlement" reached: Lavrov [Engl]

Donbas to "never" see ceasefire until "political settlement" reached: Lavrov

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that there would never be a ceasefire in Donbas until the "political settlement," adding that control over the entire territory of Donbas by international forces is not provided for by the Minsk agreements, according to an UNIAN correspondent in Russia....

=====
Sounds like there are two clear and distinct versions of Minsk.
Lavrov saying Russia will keep the war going until Ukraine capitulates. He wants Ukraine to accept Russian "political" control of the occupied lands before stopping the war.
That, presumably would include a Russian veto over all Ukrainian laws and foreign policies. i.e. - a return to de-facto Russian control over all of Ukraine.

Paruby refused to name deputies truants, it is my close friends

"Fines and there they are. That order, which I restored. But I always emphasize, without public pressure fines alone do not solve. There should be public pressure, "- he said.

According to the Speaker of Parliament, to improve people's deputies observe discipline soon.

"Communicate. I ask them, say "Guys, come, work, once went to the deputies, should come and work." I think listen. I think we will see improved discipline in our room, "- said Paruby.

But to call the names of absentees Parliament Speaker refused, replying that "it is my close friends."

Who will do something about this, when leaders of the government allows it to continue as if it is legal? Certain old practices are changed but the rest goes on, due to many MPs have the money to avoid prosecution for not fulfilling their requirements? It's corruption as usual that is allowed to go on, without punishment from the higher ups in the government.

These practices erases what has been changed for the good of the people. These so-called representatives of the people continue to break the laws they were chosen to uphold. A sad state of affairs, from the top down.

Speaker admits that fines will not make MPs sit at meetings

Post by Admin on Wed Jun 01, 2016 7:45 am

Yytannya discipline always pursues Parliament

New Parliament Speaker Andrew Paruby claims that the Parliament is only a small group of truants. He said this in an interview with "Commander" .

"This convocation most - active, effective MPs who go to committees, working groups go to work and vote. When we speak of absentees, we are talking about a small group ", - assured Paruby.

According to him, the issue of discipline - complex. "It always pursues the Parliament, well, maybe except for those times when" knopkodavstvo "was in favor, and a quorum gathered even when the hall was a small number of deputies," - said the head of BP.

He said that the restored ancient order the deduction of salaries of deputies for the days when they did not come. "It is technically. We have morning and peredobidnya registration. Now, when the deputy morning not registered in written registration, Southern be removed wages. No signature and registration evening - for a day removed salary, which is about 700 hryvnia per day "- said Paruby.

He believes that this measure by itself will affect the attendance. "It is important here and public pressure, and work with fractions. By and large, the faction responsible for the work of MPs. So I always appeal to the heads of the factions to active deputies. Because eventually when bills are not accepted only because of the lack of deputies in the hall, are all negative, "- said Paruby.

glavcom.ua   In Ukrainian/український

I never did care for Paruby to begin with. How he got into his current position is beyond me.

He complains about MPs not showing up, then earlier said may of them are his friends. He's talking, but yet to really have offered an idea on how to fix the issue. Who's he going to blame, Yanukobich, Poroshenko, Baba Yaga?

He's suppose to be a leader. it's time he starts acting like one and do something good for a change, instead of complaining like an old lady.

NATO plans to adopt support package to increase practical assistance to Ukraine at Warsaw Summit

Post by Admin on Wed Jun 01, 2016 7:55 am

NATO plans to make a political statement confirming the Alliance’s support to the Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity, as well as approve the support package and increase practical assistance to Ukraine subsequent to the results of the summit scheduled to be held in Warsaw July 8 and 9.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Interfax-Ukraine, this was said by Head of the NATO Representation to Ukraine and Director of the NATO Liaison Office Alexander Vinnikov in an interview with Segodnya.ua news outlet published on Wednesday, June 1.

"We expect the two main outcomes of the meeting with Ukraine at the summit. The joint political statement will confirm unwavering support of the Alliance to Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity. Adoption of the comprehensive support package will increase our practical assistance to Ukraine. This will speed up the existing efforts on support and bring new elements into a single support package, which will cover all areas of cooperation between NATO and Ukraine," Vinnikov said as translated from his interview, published in Russian.

He also noted that Warsaw will host a meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Commission at the level of heads of state and governments.

"This meeting will provide an opportunity to evaluate the reform progress in Ukraine and discuss our joint efforts to support Ukraine in terms of the security sector and defense reforms," the NATO Liaison Office director said.

Vinnikov also noted that in response to the aggressive actions of the Russian Federation in Ukraine, the Alliance had already adopted a number of decisions to strengthen its defense capabilities, including the Readiness Action Plan stipulating for the NATO build-up in the eastern member states and creation of the minor headquarters in these countries. According to him, this will promote stabilization of the Euro-Atlantic area, and deter any further Russian aggression.

Head of the NATO Representation to Ukraine also notes that the Alliance sees only a political solution to the conflict in Donbas.

"NATO supports the full implementation of the Minsk agreements. We believe that this is the only way to achieve peace, the only way to a political settlement of the conflict. We call on all the parties to fully comply with the obligations set out in Minsk, and emphasize Russia's obligations in this matter," he said.

"Unfortunately, in recent weeks and months, we observe an increasing number of violations of the cease-fire, which we expected to be established several months ago. And this fact certainly raises our great concern, and we reiterate the need to fulfill Minsk agreements, starting with the full and sustainable cease-fire. We support every effort that could lead to a political settlement of the conflict as we do not see a military solution for it. NATO also supports all efforts to achieve a sustainable peace," Vinnikov added.

Smuggled Message from Twitter’s Gulag!

Post by Nelson on Wed Jun 01, 2016 9:03 am

http://darthputin.blog.com/2016/06/01/smuggled-message-from-twitters-gulag/

Transcript of note from the 146% legitimate President of Russia!

Citizens!!

Your 146% legitimate President is being unjustly held in Twitter’s gulag! However, through a trusted, loyal courtier I have managed to smuggle a message to the outside world. (Ok, I scribbled note this on a spare copy of the Minsk Agreement in my pocket when I was arrested and jammed it up Medvedev’s backside for him to smuggle).

Appeals against this kangaroo court and travesty of justice have begun and the USA’s lickspittles have indicated that a compromise is possible. However, be warned, I still have neighbors I have yet to invade in order to distract my citizens from shitty roads and falling wages.

With this in mind I urge the CIA’s stooges in Russia’s illegally annexed California Oblast to release me from this unjust detention.

In the mean time, please keep tweeting your support with the hashtag #NoTwitterGulagForDarthPutinKGB to remind the fascists that this will not stand.

Yours, topless

VVP

Suspects on Regions ‘bribe payments sheet’ must be held accountable – Rada speaker

Post by Admin on Wed Jun 01, 2016 12:52 pm

Politicians and officials figuring on the Regions ‘bribe payments sheet’ must be responsible criminally and politically if convicted by court, Rada Speaker Andry Paruby said May 31, Kanal 5 reports.

Ukraine Proposes Working With U.S. To Replace Russian Rockets

Post by Admin on Wed Jun 01, 2016 1:22 pm

The head of Ukraine's Space Agency, Lyubomyr Sabadosh, said on May 31 that he proposed the plan to replace Russian RD-180 rocket engines, which the U.S. Congress has ordered to be phased out by 2019, on a visit to the United States last month.

"We have proposed using our capabilities for implementing a joint design solution. ... It's quite a complicated task, but we can cope with it," he said.

Sabadosh said the United States expressed an interest in the idea. He said further talks will be held in Kyiv in November and will address the time frame for development, conducting tests, and funding.

Congress directed the U.S. military to find alternatives to the Russian rocket engines in 2014 after relations between the United States and Russia deteriorated sharply with Moscow's annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula.

The Pentagon has said U.S. private contractors need time and incentives to develop alternatives, however, and trying to replace the Russian engine immediately would be costly......

The Unraveling Of Moscow's 'Novorossia' Dream [Engl]

...Very soon, however, the militant groups in Donbas “turned into bands occupied with violence and looting,” Aleksandr said. “People were taken hostage and released for ransom. Often they fought among themselves for spheres of influence.”

“I knew the situation was hopeless when I found out that our fighters themselves had fired on a truck with our wounded that were being evacuated from the Donetsk airport on May 26,” he said. “My good friend was killed in that bloodbath. That’s when I understood it was all over, that people had been deceived and sent to die for nothing.”

“In the pro-Russian zone [in Donbas], weapons were handed out to criminals and drug addicts who robbed people, ‘commandeered’ businesses, homes, and cars,” he said. “The situation for the Russian World project became more and more catastrophic. That romantic of the Russian World, Girkin, could not cope with the anarchy that was developing around him.”....

Please note!!!
Article is written by a scumball Greek MP.
So - no reference at all to
a) Ukraine
b) the occupied territories
c) 10,000 dead
d) Nadia Savchenko and other prisoners.

Conclusion - the Greeks are money grabbing mega-scumballs. No morals whatsoever - which is probably why they get on so well with the Russians.

How Kiev and Moscow Agreed To Ignore Each Other [Engl]

Post by Nelson on Wed Jun 01, 2016 2:46 pm

http://www.themoscowtimes.com/news/article/how-kiev-and-moscow-agreed-to-ignore-each-other/571196.html

[Good article from jeans boy Oliver Carroll - see our "Journalists reporting on Ukraine; the good the bad and the ugly" sticky, for more on him.
Basically a good overview. One point missed - European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker due to visit Moscow in a few weeks' time.
Is Putin beginning to look for an exit? ]

Extract -
...Peskov's comments were important, Strelkov says, because they represented a broader trend: "It showed that Putin is ready to give Ukraine back, if not by unconditional capitulation, then by one with a few strings attached. He's stepping back because the people around him can't stand the heat."

The Savchenko affair had been a disaster for Russia and an "obvious victory" for Ukraine, he said. "The whole process was an absurdity." The Ukrainian soldier should have been tried, he says, but "in a military tribunal" and "for crimes she really did commit." He pauses. "If it was up to me, of course, I'd deal with her in even more severe ways."

The prospect of Russia disowning eastern Ukraine would be welcomed by liberal parts of the Russian political establishment. In the past week, reforming former ministers German Gref and Alexei Kudrin made both covert and overt appeals to Putin to "tone down geopolitical tension." According to a recent investigation by the German tabloid Bild, supporting the region is costing the Russian taxpayer a minimum of 1 billion euros yearly....
