MONDAY

Please scroll down to view news items added during the day

News:
35 attacks by Putin's Russian forces yesterday.
Sadly one more soldier killed, and seven wounded by Putin's murdering terrorists - i.e. Russians

Weather:
Much cooler this morning. Down to 12 last night. High just under 20 for the next couple of days. Ok.
Lots of strawberries available now, and the cooler weather should help them last longer - maybe another week.
Some cherries, but rather early in the season yet. New potatoes also available. I love this time of year.

.....In an interview with TV channel ICTV Deputy Chairman David Lipton Foundation, commenting on the talks in Kiev.
"We are in the final stages of negotiations, we have reached agreements with the Ukrainian government on key issues. There are a few minor points to be agreed upon," - he said.
However, the deputy head of the IMF did not specify exactly which key issues were agreed.
Lipton said that raising the retirement age in Ukraine is not in question.
"Difficult aspects of the Pension Fund will be discussed in the future, this issue is complex. ....

Leaders of the parliamentary faction "Fatherland" and "Radical Party" Yulia Tymoshenko and Oleg Lyashko require the government to publish the text of the memorandum with the IMF's obligations shall Ukraine....

Ukraine needs to keep working with the IMF. A difficult time for the people, but hopefully soon the country will see some light at the end of the tunnel, by way of increased investment from western Europe. I know it is started in certain industries - agriculture, building materials, and so on.
Of course, the opposition, Putin, Tymoshenko etc will want to know the details - then they can attack the government further.

Poroshenko blackmails Kolomojsky and Kuchma - expert says

Post by Admin on Mon Jun 06, 2016 3:36 am

The transfer of case materials on Kuchma and Kolomojsky to the National Anti-Corruption Bureau indicates Poroshenko’s wish to keep them on the hook, the expert said.

In the opinion of legal expert Hanna Malyar, Poroshenko is simply blackmailing Kuchma and Kolomojsky to be on the safe side and imitating the fight against the oligarchs. 

 “All this looks like political blackmail, not fight against the oligarchs. So far, not a single tycoon has been put in jail. What we’ve seen are merely loud declarations, the expert told Voice of Capital radio May 5. 

The transfer of case materials indicates that Poroshenko may take further steps if unruly oligarchs do not toe the line, Hanna Malyar said.

Police Break Up Protest In Crimea Over Beach Access

Post by Admin on Mon Jun 06, 2016 3:44 am

Among those hauled away at the June 4 gathering in the city of Alushta, some 50 kilometers from Crimea’s capital, Simferopol, was local lawmaker Pavel Stepanchenko, who resisted police officers’ demands to halt what they called an “unsanctioned” public meeting.

The officers dragged away Stepanchenko and other protesters who stepped in to defend him amid chants of “shame” from the crowd of protesters that numbered in the dozens.

The crowed also reportedly yelled criticism of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s ruling United Russia party and called the police officers “Banderovtsy,” which in Russia -- including on state-run television -- is used as a derogatory term to describe Ukrainian nationalists.

Stepanchenko managed to get away, while three other demonstrators were reportedly detained and charged with minor offenses, including participating in an unsanctioned rally and resisting police..........

Crimean peaceful protesters get violent awakening to Russian real world

Post by Admin on Mon Jun 06, 2016 4:02 am

Among the 50 or more Crimeans violently dispersed while trying to hold a peaceful protest on June 4 was one communist deputy who played an extremely active role in supporting Russia’s invasion and annexation of Crimea. Judging by the outraged cries from the protesters, Pavel Stepanchenko was not the only protester confused by the face presented of Russian reality.

The protest was over the appearance of commercial outlets and funfair attractions blocking the beach in Alushta. Local residents are convinced that corruption among the authorities is behind the loss of access to their beach.

The Internet site Your Newspaper informs that an attempt by the initiative group to agree the protest on the beachfront with the city authorities had been rejected. Having failed to get permission, they avoided any loudspeakers or other items that could get them accused of holding an unauthorized protest, and tried to call their peaceful action a ‘meeting with city council deputy Stepanchenko’. Such meetings cannot be banned. At least not in Ukraine they can’t.

Article 39 of Ukraine’s Constitution states quite unambiguously that “citizens have the right to assemble peacefully without arms and to hold meetings, rallies, processions and demonstrations, upon notifying in advance the bodies of executive power or bodies of local self-government.”

Notification does not mean asking for permission. If the authorities want to ban a meeting, they must apply to the court. Court bans became extremely common during the presidency of Viktor Yanukovych, though not those meetings formally referred to as between MPs and their voters.

Crimea, however, has been under Russian occupation now for over 2 years, with Stepanchenko reportedly having even received an award for his part in ensuring Russia’s seizure of control.

Despite this, he was clearly taken aback when police arrived within seconds and demanded to see their “permit”. He can be heard on the video here actually telling the police that there is a notification system, and that they had ‘notified’ the authorities.

Russia’s Constitution undoubtedly speaks of freedom of peaceful assembly, but permission has long been required, and normally refused, for any public protest, march, etc. While Crimea remains under Russian occupation, such restrictive measures will apply there also.

The police soon physically grabbed Stepanchenko and tried to drag him to a police car. The other protesters tried to prevent this, and the police called in reinforcements. The officers eventually pushed Stepanchenko into the car which was then surrounded by enraged protesters, including several women with children.

In seriously confused fashion, the protesters chanted both “Shame on Russia” and “Banderovtsi!”. The latter refers to supporters of the Ukrainian nationalist Stepan Bandera and has long been used in all Russian and pro-Russian anti-Ukrainian rhetoric.

The same newspaper reported later that Stepanchenko had been released after 7 hours, with his clothes ripped and with signs of bleeding on his back. Two other protesters were at that time still being held in custody. Stepanchenko told the paper about his “illegal detention” saying that the police had hurled him to the floor in their minivan and proceeded to kick him. He was then taken to the police station and says that for the first three hours he was not permitted to call his lawyer.

Stepanchenko was also angered that he had been illegally held for over 3 hours and rang the police number to inform of this. One of the heads of that department came running within 10 minutes, but not with the result Stepanchenko expected. Instead, the police head shouted at the officers because they had let Stepanchenko hold on to his mobile phone!

He and the other two men detained face administrative charges – for ‘organizing a illegal public event’ and ‘not obeying the demands of a police officer’.......................

Oil price stable around 50 dollars a barrel

Post by Nelson on Mon Jun 06, 2016 4:44 am

Oil price stable. www.oil-price.net
West Texas Intermediate.
$48.62 ▼-0.55 -1.13%

Brent Crude Oil
$49.64 ▼-0.40 -0.81%

====
Hopefully the price will stick around here. Some stablity is needed - especially in Ukraine - for planning.
I noticed that the price went up 1 uah at the pumps a couple of days' ago. Oko Oko now 25 for 95 octane.

A price near 50 - ok I believe for some shale-gas producers. And they will keep production up in America - by far the largest consumer of oil in the world.

"Right Sector" intends to block the march of equality: they do not care that will fight

Post by Admin on Mon Jun 06, 2016 7:48 am

"Right Sector" against the propaganda of LGBT - is the norm



Speaker "Right Sector" Artem Skoropadsky said that political forces would "strongly discourage" holding equality march on June 12, as against the 'propaganda that LGBT - is the norm. " He said this in a comment edition of "Gordon".

Asked whether interpreted as a threat to his words that in Kiev during the march would be "bloody mess" Skoropadskyi said: "Given the experience of previous years and tense situation in society, there can happen anything. You remember at the meeting on August 31 last year in Parliament generally thrown grenade. And there is much less of confrontation and misunderstanding than between the LGBT community and nationalists."

" Certainly, we are going to take part in actions against the march and we strongly discourage his conduct "- said Skoropadskyi.

To clarify what exactly techniques he said: "Just block the move, that's all. Well, perhaps it could provoke a fight, we understand, well, so what's next? Renounce their beliefs? .. So will fight, but we would not care that it will fight, we will express our position as we believe possible."

Speaker of the aircraft also joined the debate correspondence with the head of the house Natspolitsii Dekanoyidze. "We absolutely incomprehensible position of the National Police. Yesterday it rukovoditelnitsa Dekanoyidze said that, then we must show that we are a European country, and therefore strictly police respond to any attempt to march suspension. And I would remind her that in fact in her native country, Georgia, from which she came here recently, such as gay parades pretty hard dispersed faithful and just unhappy people this time. And two - surely you can not see the extent to which the European, in fact, hold gay parades do not spend, "- said Skoropadskyi.

" That was no provocation, there is only one way out - to cancel the event, "- he said .

asked why the "Right sector" does not want to give the LGBT community an opportunity to express their position, political power speaker said: "This is not just our own position, we are tired to answer the same question. We are not against sexual minorities, we are against the imposition of unhealthy things that are inherent to 1% of people in the community to be imposed on the whole society. Ukraine - very traditional country. As the same Georgia. It never becomes a norm. We are opposed to imposing rules and not against the fact that there may walk in his hands."

In his view," any street action is propaganda, and so gay parade - it is propaganda that LGBT - is the norm but we do not believe this is the norm."

Recall, on June 12 in Kiev representatives of LGBT equality march planned.

Post by Admin on Mon Jun 06, 2016 7:55 am

Optimistic, only 19% of Russians - in their opinion, the worst behind

However, 23% of respondents indicated that they believe the Russians are experiencing hard times now. Another 19% of respondents believe that the worst is behind us and the future socio-economic situation will improve soon.
