46 attacks again by the Russian occupiers yesterday.
Sadly - 2 Ukrainian soldiers killed, and 10 wounded in fighting. And the French senate want to drop Russian sanctions? Sick people without morals.

Last night amazing thunderstorms in the Kiev area. And some quite heavy rain.
This morning - the calm after the storm. Party cloudy. 16C at 10 am. Everywhere is amazingly green.

Heard that Tymoshenko had a top-level meeting a couple of days' ago.
Savchenko discussed. She is a wild card. And they simply don't know which way she is going to turn.
Some talk behind Tymoshenko's back.. People in her party beginning to realise that she is not popular. A lot of people don't like her.
Savchenko's talk about becoming President has got them thinking - maybe a new party leader?!

Dutch authorities have not forgotten about the results of anti-Ukrainian referendum

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, using his country's position as the Presidency of the Council of Europe seeks revision of Ukraine Association Agreement with the European Union. The policy of changing certain clauses country took after a referendum in which the majority of citizens voted against the ratification of the Association. This is stated in the article "Commander" "Association of Ukraine - EU: a woman Hague against?" .

First of all, the Dutch government proposes to delete a paragraph on military cooperation between Ukraine and Europe. This requirement Ґaaha proves that the EU cares about security issues NATO. However, within the EU also has a military cooperation and military-industrial. According to the current text of the Association, Ukraine got a chance and an opportunity to upgrade their own army with the help of just cooperation with Europe and a number of European countries, in turn, can now directly work with the Ukrainian aerospace industry.

Dutch diplomats also insist that Ukraine had "automatic access to European funding." As we know, the countries that signed the EU Association start to receive from the Commission funds allocated to development of different areas - for example, to build infrastructure projects. This - not loans and targeted subsidies, that is, to return the money is not necessary, provided that they are used as intended. Opportunities theft of such subsidies is not, because the money allocated is not conditional Ukrainian officials, they go directly to contractors, usually foreign, projects that deliver "turnkey" Ukrainian government.

In addition, the Dutch government requires that the Association had clearly stated that the agreement does not give Ukraine the right to join the European Union. Actually, about the prospect of the Association already spelled nothing but the Netherlands believe that this is not enough.   In Ukrainian/український

"The largest import of used cars is from the British Virgin Islands or Panama"

May 31 excited member of the "Renaissance" Dmitry Svyatash ran out of the hall and the parliament, and not holding back emotions, said cell of the "terrible" event that just occurred. In the tube invisible interlocutor MP and known (as he claims former) avtomahnat said a lot of "hot" words, and briefly describe their essence can be known winged phrase "lost everything". On the day Parliament adopted the long-awaited by many law a significant reduction in excise duty ( since 1 July this year ) on imported vehicles (except production of aggressors) that were in use. Some by car tax cut of more than 20 times.

But while some celebrate, others bu la mourning . Svyatash, considered one of the most powerful lobbyists avtohaluzi, registered subsequently adopted a resolution to repeal the law. Thus the procedure of signing the law president (or the imposition of a veto) blocked consideration of this resolution by Parliament.

In that Parliament suddenly change his mind and cancel its decision not believe myself Svyatash. In a conversation with "Hlavkomom" MP predicts that "thanks" to the new law will remain out of work thousands of workers in the sector and the country will lose out on billions of hryvnia per year. This Svyatash transfers fellow MPs who are to blame.

Reduced excise tax on old cars - it's one of the few "victories" that ordinary people can experience for yourself. You're in this situation is likely to avtomahnati lobbyist in that do not want to be missing out on profits. Can you explain who exactly is this bad?

This is such a "victory", which actually would be "a betrayal." Let me explain why. In Ukraine, for the past seven years has sold 4 million new cars. This car bought Ukrainian citizens and legal persons who paid for these taxes and fees. I will say even that almost half of these cars were assembled in Ukraine. All seven Ukrainian car owners who have more, some less, went through our country are bought petrol, paid road fee, car insurance, repair, spare parts bought ... That indirectly participated in the creation of gross domestic product. All these cars have some residual value prevailing on the market. Every family that has a car knows that it costs roughly 10 or 15 thousand dollars. For statistics will tell you that the volume of domestic resale in Ukraine last year was 450 thousand contracts and sales of new cars totaled 52,000 cars.

What will happen after the entry into force of the new law? That is, for example five years "Skoda", owned by Ukrainian, and the same five-year "damage" has the Pole. Pole all those five years went to his "loss" in Poland, there was buying parts, pay taxes, fees and so on and will now be able to sell it to Ukraine. And if he will sell it in Poland, it receives VAT refund from the state, according to Ukraine sell less. And this car will go to us without excise restrictive measures and will soon compete with the same machine that operated in Ukraine. This will lead to the fact that prices for Ukrainian secondary market indeed fall, but due to the fact that poor 30-40% a sufficiently large number of our citizens.

Now, about who benefits and who is lobbying. When a law lobbied representatives of industry, large factories that create GDP and jobs - this is normal and it happens everywhere. But another thing when it engaged in "huckster" of four or five automarket that decided the same market with 450,000 domestic resale rozderybanyty. Resale and do not auto building and creating jobs.................

Oil investors are buying contracts that will only pay out if crude rises well above $100 a barrel over the next four years – a clear sign some believe today's bust is sowing the seeds of the next boom, according to Bloomberg.

The options deals, which brokers said bear the hallmarks of trades made by hedge funds, appear to be based on the belief that current low prices will generate a supply crunch as oil companies cut billions of dollars in spending on developing fields. The International Energy Agency forecasts that non-OPEC supply will suffer its biggest decline in more than two decades this year, Bloomberg wrote. "The market faces a supply crunch in the next 24 months," said Francisco Blanch, head of commodities research at Bank of America Merrill Lynch in New York. "Some hedge funds are betting that oil prices will need to rise sharply to bring demand down again – that's why they are buying deep out-of-the-money call options." Over the last month, investors have bought call options – giving the right to buy at a predetermined price and time – for late 2018, 2019 and 2020 at strike prices of $80, $100 and $110 a barrel, according to data from the New York Mercantile Exchange and the U.S. Depository Trust & Clearing Corp....................

Ukrainian military aviator Nadia Savchenko said she would take a lie-detector test to silence critics that have suggested she might be a double agent for Russia. Savchenko spent nearly two years in Russian captivity before she was released in May. After receiving a hero's welcome and being sworn in as a lawmaker, recent polls show a dip in her popularity. Speaking to Oleksandr Lashchenko, host of RFE/RL's Ukrainian Service program Saturday Interview, Savchenko accused some Ukrainian media of misrepresenting her.

US Jay-Bill Corp. is showcasing its investment project in Zakarpatya which will create several thousands of new jobs, oblast administration reports June 10.

Total investment within 3 years will amount to $55 million, the largest in Ukraine. Jay-Bill is to build a new plant by the yearend, increasing its workforce from the present 2,000 to 5,000.

Jay-Bill is the world’s third largest manufacturer of electronics with a yearly turnover of $18 bn.

The Carpathian area is a gold mine for Ukraine, if it can make it one of its priorities to fix the worse roads I've ever driven through. Beautiful mountainous horizons, Colors beyond compare. But what will continue to keep tourists from returning is its roads.

I spent six days driving through it, and the worse part of traveling through it was, I spent a majority of the time paying attention to driving and weaving around the potholes than enjoying its background beauty. Of course we know it has a lot to do with corruption regarding its funding from the government. Till that's corrected, Ukraine will continue shorting itself from a big prosperous tourism potential.

Investments will and can be very big in the Carpathians, but with these horrible conditions, it'll be slow in creating prosperity in that area.

I'm glad I got full coverage for my rental car, and glad that it withstood tremendous damage. So I can imagine a citizens cost to live in those areas. I would love to buy land there and build a home. I couldn't ask for more, from such beautiful surroundings and the savings as compared to living in the US.

So Ukraine, do something to make the beauty the country has to make it a great European country. The people deserve it.

Here's a short video on what I experienced leaving the hotel in Vorokhta, Ukraine I stayed in.

Euan MacDonald: Divide and re-conquer?
I don't normally recommend articles in the Yulia Post, but this is not bad. Opinion. And some of it maybe a bit dodgy.
Towards the end he's basically suggesting - like with Savchenko - negotiating with the Putin puppets, particularly with the Lugansk guy.
I think if Plotnitsky tries to get his own "kingdom" within free Ukraine, then Putin will simply remove him.
