"Gay parade". Thoughts

Post by Nelson on Sun Jun 12, 2016 4:21 am

I should add, I believe it is officially now called the "March of equality".

Last year I witnessed the gathering on the banks of the Dnepr at Obolon.
People gathered. A large police presence. A lot of curious onlookers. A few nutters attacking the police.

This year - held in the centre of Kiev. I didn't go. Watched on tv. Event seems to have passed by without major violence.
One or two nutters shouting obscene things were stopped by the police. Rightly so.
Large police presence. No problems that I saw.

Some reports.
BBC - from before it all happened... not bad actually, even thought this is Spanish boy Burridge from Bristol.
Basically - Ukraine is in a no-win situation. I agree with his write-up.

Ukraine gay rights tension mirrors post-Maidan upheaval

Most of this report was written before the event.]

Euro 2016: Russia faces Uefa probe after England match violence

From the section Europe
Uefa has begun disciplinary proceedings against Russia's Football Union after "totally unacceptable" scenes at Saturday's England-Russia game.
Footage appeared to show Russia fans rush at England supporters after the 1-1 Euro 2016 draw in Marseille.
Charges against Russia are for crowd disturbances, racist behaviour, and setting off fireworks, Uefa confirmed....

I am sure with a couple of million euros to Uefa officials from Putin, and all will be ok ... Blatter, Platini, and the gang.

Germany v Ukraine: previews

Post by Nelson on Sun Jun 12, 2016 7:23 am

Germany v Ukraine preview: Defensive headache for Joachim Low
http://www.skysports.com/football/germany-vs-ukraine/352847
World Cup winners Germany commence their bid to claim the European crown in Sunday evening’s opening game against Ukraine.
The Germans will be strong favourites to make a winning start, although a growing injury list is sure to raise Ukrainian hopes of an upset in Lille.
Defence is undoubtedly the weakest link for manager Joachim Low going into the game, with a huge question mark surrounding the fitness of Mats Hummels who is struggling to shake off a calf problem....


[Long detailed review]

Euro 2016 Germany v Ukraine preview: World champions desperate for more glory
http://www.eurosport.com/football/euro-2016/2016/euro-2016-germany-v-ukraine-preview-world-champions-desperate-for-mor-glory_sto5642564/story.shtml
Reigning World Cup winners Germany kick off their campaign against a tricky opponent on Sunday night, and come into the tournament off the back of some questionable form. The qualifying campaign started badly, and Germany were then beaten 3-2 by England in March - a match in which the English tore apart the world champions' defence late on. Germany are a classic 'tournament team', however, and as the Joachim Low quotes below make clear, they have every confidence in their ability to turn it on when it matters....

Ukraine is a great European state. Lest we forget, it is still at war [Engl]

Ukraine is a great European state. Lest we forget, it is still at war
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/06/11/ukraine-is-a-great-european-state-lest-we-forget-it-is-still-at/
....Thanks to the predatory ambitions of Vladimir Putin, Ukraine is the sole European country that is waging war on its own soil. And Kiev has a very 20th century ritual: the daily announcement of the communiqué from the front. At 12.30 precisely, Colonel Andriy Lysenko, a lantern-jawed military spokesman, reads out the latest news from the east, where Ukrainian troops are fighting battles of attrition with Russian forces and their local allies, who occupy about half of the neighbouring regions of Donetsk and Luhansk.....
The “people’s republics” of Donetsk and Luhansk are the unrecognised orphans of Europe. Russia props them up with weapons, troops and money, but has declined to follow its own example in Crimea and actually annex them. Mr Putin does not want to bear the full cost of the bankrupt statelets he has created by force of arms....


=====

Well, well, well....
This is David Blair in the Daily Telegraph. Wow. Two years ago he was writing articles critical of Ukraine, saying its armed forces were being "heavy handed" fighting against Putin's army and air force. What a turn-around. What has happened to him? I think he must have visited Kiev.
Blair - is an expert on Africa. He is not an idiot, but was clearly swept up in pro-Putin propaganda two years' ago. A right-wing Seamus Milne.
Now - well - it shows that there is hope for all journalists....

100,000 flee 'worsening oppression' as Russia tightens grip on Crimea [Engl]

100,000 flee 'worsening oppression' as Russia tightens grip on Crimea
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/06/11/100000-flee-crimea-as-russia-tightens-grip/
....But Tamila Tasheva, the co-founder and coordinator of Crimea SOS, a Ukrainian charity, said the real figure was as high as 100,000. "There are more and more people leaving Crimea as the repression becomes worse," she said. "Our offices are full of requests and applications for help for people and their children."

The new estimate is based on data disclosed by Ukraine's authorities. Between January 2015 and April this year, there was a net movement of 73,100 people out of Crimea and into the adjacent region of Ukraine, according to the National Border Guard Service.

That period does not include the first nine months of Russia's occupation, ....


=========

Wow. I don't believe it.... I just don't believe it.
DAVID BLAIR again!! In the Telegraph. What has happened?
It looks like Blair has gone to Ukraine, and begun to understand the situation a little, rather than sitting behind a desk in London, or Africa.
A good headline. You certainly would never ever get anything like this from scumballs like Russiaprofile and Guardian writer Shaun Walker, and the Russian "journalists" , that is for sure.
Finally something of the truth of the situation in Ukraine in the British press - admittedly after two years.

You won't read that from Shaun Walker and Seumas Milne in RIA Novosti, or The Guardian.

I mentioned Burridge's report above, but the BBC have linked it to this headline on the main page -

Tom Burridge: Ukraine's gay rights battleground
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-36503259
The actual heading - Ukraine gay rights tension mirrors post-Maidan upheaval - appears at the link.

Maybe the BBC should substitute Ukraine with Orlando?!
50 dead in a gay club there today - but that's fairly normal in the US.
The American consitition enshrines the right to mass-killings. They call it the "right to bear arms" there.
A rather unfortunate heading - "gay rights battleground" - from the bbc today, one might suggest...
Some editor trying to "do the dirty" on Ukraine again?! Could be. Some prathead bbc Sunday editor half drunk after Saturday night on the town.

Donbas break-away republics on verge of collapse – Russian newspaper

Post by Admin on Sun Jun 12, 2016 2:06 pm

Industrial companies are stalled in the rebel-held part of Donbas due to the pressure by pro-Putin separatist leaders - this is the opinion of the Russia-based gazeta.ru.

It is weird that the newspaper that cannot be described as Ukraine’s loyal friend is reporting the sad news, putting the blame on the separatist leaders.

Such flagship plants as the Alchevsk Steel and Donetsk Steel have stopped, and the Avdijyvka Coke plant was damaged by shelling and is temporarily out of business.

A number of other Donetsk big plants are on the verge of a closure. The interruption of cargo transportation with Ukraine on May 30 has given the ominous dimension to the overall situation.  

 “The intyerruption was declared by the rebel leaders at loud  pre-paid rallies by railway men in Debaltseve and Yasynuvata where the separatists demanded to be paid wages by mainland Ukraine. It is absolutely clear that the rallies were incited by the rebel leaders,” gazeta.ru reports.

DW: Russia likely to be fined by UEFA after Euro violence in Marseille

Post by Admin on Sun Jun 12, 2016 7:30 pm

The Russian Football Union will most likely be fined by UEFA after Russian fans attacked England fans in Marseille, a Russian minister has said, according to Deutsche Welle (DW).

Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko said the option of a fine was most likely following clashes between England and Russia fans after the Euro 2016 match in Marseille, R-Sport news agency reported, DW wrote. "We will have a fine from [European soccer's governing body] UEFA, so I understand. We behaved incorrectly," Mutko said. Russian officials will also investigate what happened, he added, noting what he said were "many nuances." Earlier, Mutko claimed there had been "no clash...that's being exaggerated; in fact, everything is fine here." Mutko, who has been accused by the World Anti-Doping Agency of complicity in a state doping program, called the charge "laughable."

The British were upset, of course, but it all quickly dissolved. "Such matches should be organized properly. It is necessary to separate the fans. The bad thing is that there were firecrackers and flares," Mutko said...................

Post by Admin on Sun Jun 12, 2016 8:08 pm

The revolution of dignity was not only against Yanukovych, but also European values

Serhiy Leshchenko, MP from "MFP" believes that equality march should be held in a country that seeks to change and gradually changing.

"I was on that march last year. The issue of human rights and European values. The revolution of dignity was not only against Yanukovych, but also European values, to ensure that Ukraine joined the European space, not in words but in reality, "- he stressed.

"Events such as equality march is a sign that the country is changing. When MPs take part in such events - a sign that attention turns to human rights, which were previously considered not guaranteed in Ukraine ", - said the deputy.

In my recent travels to Ukraine, I noticed attitudes changing and freedoms being expressed more than before 2004 Maidan. I was told by an American that has lived in Ukraine for the past 4 years that the young crowd which haven't been exposed to the old soviet days are wanting more freedoms of expression, as we've seen with the LGBTQ group. I saw events such as bike rallies which weren't seen in the past. Young students gathering to enjoy what a free life can bring. More local events are occurring that were never seen in the past, even in the somewhat now pro-Russian areas of the country.

IMO, Ukraine will NEVER go back to the past, as millions have seen since 2004 how much more enjoyable life can be without having to bow to a lunatic leader. NEVER will the want to past. The only ones that still want the past are the old sector which is becoming minimal as time goes by.

Ukraine in the near future is going to be a prosperous powerhouse within Europe. I won't doubt one day they'll call the shots on what should be in Europe. of what I recently saw of Ukraine, and I've hounded about it many times in the past, it's potential is immeasurable. The country's so rich in so many ways. I know Ukrainians won't boast about it, but they all know what Ukraine has to offer the rest of the globe as many top governments have seen recently and are getting on the bandwagon to take advantage of the vast opportunities, such as China and Saudi Arabia, just to mention a couple.

Their manufacturing in the military sector will jump to the top as they recently were (#4). Their military force will be top quality to defend itself. Their exports will continue to expand as we've seen recently.

Never underestimate Ukraine, just desire what it has to offer.

слава Україні.

Russian OSCE Appointee Implicated in Russia’s Fake Crimea Referendum & War Propaganda

Post by Admin on Sun Jun 12, 2016 11:05 pm

Vladislav Grib, recently appointed a personal representative to the OSCE’s Chairperson-in-Office was directly involved in rubberstamping the scam ‘referendum’ used by Russia to try to justify its invasion and annexation of Crimea in 2014. His new appointment as personal representative “on combating racism, xenophobia and discrimination”, etc. seems especially inappropriate given his part in warmongering lies in September 2014 which grossly distorted information provided by the OSCE Observer Mission in Ukraine.

Grib’s active role in rubberstamping a fake ‘referendum’ was in no way concealed as the statement issued by the so-called “Civil Control’ organization, with his signature first, makes quite clear.

This statement begins as follows:

“An all-Crimean referendum was scheduled for 16 March 2014 by the lawfully formed bodies of power – the Crimean parliament and Sevastopol City Council – after the state coup in Ukraine, the coming to power of a self-proclaimed government and the orgy of radical nationalists, neo-Nazis and criminal forces”.

No mention is made of the seizure of control by Russian soldiers without insignia who forced a ‘parliamentary session’ at gunpoint, nor of the fact that Ukraine’s Constitution stipulates that any decision changing Ukraine’s territory must be put to a nationwide vote.

The so-called ‘referendum’ was condemned not only by the Crimean Tatar Mejlis, or representative assembly of the largest indigenous people of Crimea, Ukraine’s government and civic bodies, but also by the OSCE, the EU, European Parliament and all democratic countries.

Civil Control, however, found essentially no violations and repeated the unrealistic turnout results which even the Russian Human Rights Council, an advisory body to President Vladimir Putin, have acknowledged were grossly inflated. There was no criticism of the two ‘choices’ given in this event, neither of which allowed Crimeans to opt for the status quo. One of the two available options was so unlikely to be understood by voters, that a vote in favour of the other – ‘joining Russia’ – would have still been rigged, even if there had been any grounds for believing in a fair vote count. There were none.

The ‘observer mission’ was as fraudulent as the referendum itself. According to Anton Shekhovtsov, a researcher on far-right movements who spotted many of those he monitors at the event, Civil Control was directly involved in coordinating observers. He says that it recruited the Russian team itself, while turning to ‘friends’ whose organizations have consistently provided their services. The international group was led by Mateusz Piskorski from the European Centre of Geopolitical Analysis (ECGA). Piskorski, who is currently under arrest on spying charges in Poland, has for many years now faithfully served as a mouthpiece in support of Putin’s Russia. Other Russian electoral stunts he has approved were in St Petersburg, Moldova and Donbas. At least some of the ‘observers’were from the Belgium-based Eurasian Observatory for Democracy and Elections headed by Luc Michel and Jean-Pierre Vandersmissen, both supporters of the neo-Nazi Jean-François Thiriart and members of the extreme right Parti Communautaire National-Européen (PCN-NCP). The list of observers included representatives of the far-right parties Jobbik (Hungary); Ataka (Bulgaria); Vlaams Belang (Belgium); Freedom Party (Austria) and others. There were also members of neo-Stalinist or extreme left-wing parties, including Germany’s Die Linke. Two Bundestag deputies from this German party have since twice visited militant-controlled Donbas, providing propaganda stunts for the so-called ‘Donetsk people’s republic’.

Given Grib’s new career move, it is worth noting that the above-mentioned Luc Michel, who has also taken part in similar performances by Kremlin-backed militants in Donbas, was presented by the Russian government-controlled TV Rossiya 24 as from the OSCE. The latter neither observed nor recognized the alleged results of the event.
