Read this morning of 72 attacks by Putin's forces on the Ukrainian army yesterday.
He is not letting up.
I also read yesterday of another protest in Donetsk against the war.
People are beginning to criticise the electrician - self proclaimed ruler of Donetsk, Zacharchenko.
And opposition and disquiet with his rule will only increase over time.

Weather -
Pleasant. 24C predicted. Comfortable. Blue sky, a few white clouds. Weather looks stable for the next week.
But no rain. Not good, in that respect.

Waterloo -
Saw an item on the Ukrainian tv news last night about Waterloo - apparently the 200th anniversary. A big re-enactment.
After Waterloo, and the dictator Napoleon was removed, there was calm in Europe for several decades - until the Crimean war.

The story of the arrest of Russian state property in some European countries, impotent tantrum caused the Russian authorities once again stressed the main weakness of the Putin system.

He writes about this in Facebook Russian political scientist Igor Eydman.

"Her Achilles heel - the contradiction between the aggressive revanchist foreign policy and integrated into the global market economy dependent on it. It has become a commonplace comparison with Putin's course Hitler's aggressive policy in the pre-war Europe, the Russian aggression against Ukraine - and the dismemberment of the capture of Czechoslovakia, the annexation of the Crimea - with the Anschluss. "

Political scientist explained the significant difference in situations.

"Before the beginning of the aggression, Hitler created the German economy and the mobilization achieved its relative autarky. This economy, although it depended on the supply of strategic materials from the allied countries, was very sensitive to external pressure, to fluctuations in global economic conditions. Only provide such an economic basis for its aggressive plans, Hitler began to implement them. Putin is, as they say, reached into the water, not knowing the ford. Its economic model is largely created by liberal economists headed by Kudrin. It is absolutely unsuitable for the confrontation with Western partners and vulnerable to them pressure. To Hitler did if the year that way in 1938 some German assets arrested Belgium? I think the next day all the property of the Belgians in Germany (and perhaps themselves) would be immediately arrested. Putin may be I wanted to do the same. But fear. Such a decision would cause it to international sanctions, anger the world's major economic players, as a consequence - a sharp drop in the ruble exchange rate, shares of Russian companies, the outflow of capital, investments and the termination, in the end, the most powerful crisis ", - he said.

Eydman believes that the economic vulnerability of the system - the only thing that restrains Putin.

"If not for that, he had not only Kharkiv and Odessa to Kiev troops moved", - he said.

"It is no accident that radical chauvinists such Glazyev and Prokhanov long offered Putin to implement mobilization, autarkic economic development model. They understand that without tea of ​​imperial revenge Russia is doomed to ignominious failure fast. And Putin, apparently, before the end of this I am not aware of. He wants to reconcile the irreconcilable: the cross of the imperial revenge and loose pants dependent economy, demonstrating cut much opportunity to implement the ambitious foreign policy agenda.

Dependence on the world market, of course, a strong deterrent, but its influence is not unlimited. The Russian president is rapidly losing the remnants of adequacy. If the Putin regime in the near future is finally torpedoed economically, it can and climb back to economic naked into a new, even more ambitious foreign policy adventures. Win - will not win, but still a lot of blood shed, "- he wrote. In Russian

According to the blogger Sinitsyn, 22-year-old man with friends to celebrate a birthday with friends and went to the stall after curfew.

One of the scenarios of further development of relations between Ukraine and Russia in connection with Russian aggression in the East is the scenario of "total war." This was in an article for ZN.UA writes Vladimir Gorbulin, Advisor to the President of Ukraine, Director of the National Institute for Strategic Studies under the President of Ukraine, doctor of technical sciences, professor, academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.

According to the author, such a scenario is possible, subject to Russian government decision to launch open military aggression to obtain a land corridor to the Crimea and unhindered access to its military contingent in Transnistria. In this case, Ukraine will be deprived of the choice of a possible settlement in the Donbas, and will be forced to defend its independence, using all available resources.

"The development of events in such a scenario would mean for Ukraine's full militarization of society; economic, political, cultural and ideological propaganda and mobilization; imposition of martial law; maximum self-reliance, due to the inevitable international isolation, at least in the early stages of an all-out war and a corresponding reduction in the proceeds from external resources; uncompromising focus on the destruction of the enemy; attacks against critical infrastructure of the enemy; active guerrilla and sabotage activities; denial or minimization of diplomatic and foreign economic cooperation with an enemy government and its satellites; the complete subordination of the armed forces and diplomacy, war propaganda, "- said Gorbulin.

At the same time, the expert said, Ukraine has a chance to win an all-out war, as opposed to her country with limited technological and financial resources; low "margin of safety" of the political system; population, which is inherent negative demographic dynamics and the inability to resist the aggressive national minorities; "Nedomodernizovannoy" army.

Gorbulin believes that the resistance of the Ukrainian people of the Russian aggression, sooner or later it will return the location of the leading states of the world, as well as deepen the international isolation of Russia. In addition, its demoralizing and demotivating role play fighting on the territory of Russia itself, which inevitably arise in conditions of total war. "In the case of Russia's defeat in such a war will be finally resolved the issue Amenities Donbass and Crimea, Ukraine to get rid of the current" fifth column "outspoken supporters of the" Russian world ", will get its own" heroic epic "as a ground for the patriotic education of future generations. Most of the issues of Ukrainian-Russian relations will be resolved definitively and historical paths of both peoples diverge forever, and the level of antagonism to reach the highest rates. Even in the case of capture by the Russian army of the Ukrainian territory war is over - will continue the guerrilla movement and subversive activities against the occupiers. According to this scenario, the inevitable intervention in the conflict in the Western one form or another, the introduction of new, severe sanctions against the Russian Federation, the total political isolation of the Russian leadership, perhaps, the exception of the Russian Security Council and other international organizations. On the other hand, the price of victory would be destroyed infrastructure and economic potential of Ukraine, numerous victims among the civilian and military "- says the expert.

Gorbulin noted that Ukraine's total war is purely defensive. It does not necessarily lead to mass casualties; on the contrary, the readiness for such a war would be greatly deter aggressors fear of significant losses and the threat of transfer of hostilities on its territory. The motto of the defensive war is formulated as "totally mobilized in order to survive," the purpose - "totally reject the superior forces of the aggressor on its own territory by inflicting maximum losses demotivating."

This scenario, according Gorbulina - the most heroic and sacrificial, though the least likely. The desire to fight as a whole is not like the Ukrainian and Russian people - no one wants to lose the benefits of modern life for the sake of peace whims of a handful of political adventurers, advisor to the President of Ukraine.

"In general, the scenario of total war aimed for Ukraine to win and preserve its territorial integrity. History knows many examples of successful viscous semi-guerrilla wars of small and medium-sized states against larger and much more powerful. However, this scenario can bring not only victory, but also a significant loss for the country. But in any case, such a scenario is not the goal of Ukraine. The government will be forced to follow it only in case of a full-scale attack by the Open Russia ", - says Gorbulin.

In all, he identified five basic scenarios on Donbas and Ukrainian-Russian relations in connection with this, the three of them radical, two - intermediate compromise. The first radical scenario - the scenario of "total war", which is possible, subject to the Russian government decision to launch open military aggression to obtain a land corridor to the Crimea and unhindered access to its military contingent in Transnistria. The second radical scenario - the scenario of "cut-off" or "wall", provides the ultimate failure of Ukraine from the occupied territories and a complete break with them. Third radical scenario - a scenario "satellite" to find ways to provide a separate peace with Russia on favorable terms, neglecting the interests of the Western partners, the recognition of the autonomy of the Donbass, the rejection of the return of the Crimea. The fourth scenario - the scenario of "freezing" is to "freeze" of the conflict along the lines of Transnistria, Abkhazia, South Ossetia. The fifth scenario - the scenario of "no war, no peace" or "limited war and permanent negotiation." In Russian

Yale University historian Timothy Snyder has become one of the unexpected "celebrities" of the conflict in Ukraine.

He has written a string of articles and given dozens of lectures in which he offers his correctives to narratives about the history of Eastern Europe that have emerged from Vladimir Putin's Russia. In particular, the author of Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler And Stalin, has waged a one-man campaign against Russian claims that Ukraine is not, to use Putin's words, "a real country."

Snyder spoke recently with RFE/RL Russian Service correspondent Yaroslav Shimov about the roles the interpretation and reinterpretation of history are playing in the current conflict in Ukraine and about the dangers of the Russian government's attempts to "obtain a monopoly…on historical interpretation."

RFE/RL: Your book is about how the struggle between Russia and the West played out in Eastern Europe in the 1930s and 1940s. Are we seeing something of a repetition of this now?

Timothy Snyder: The book is not so much about Russia and the West. If anything, the Soviet project was a kind of Western project because it was about modernizing a huge country that its leadership saw as backwards. So I wouldn't want to say Bloodlands was about Russia and the West.

Bloodlands is much more about a competition of two colonial projects -- where the Soviet project aimed to take land and people and force them into the future and the Nazi project aimed to conquer land and people and force them into the past. What is special about the region that I call "the Bloodlands," which is western Russia, the Baltics, Belarus, Ukraine, and most of Poland, is that these were the lands that were touched by both of these projects. So the question is not West and East or West and Russia. The question is what kinds of projects have contacts with these territories.........................

At a press conference in Kyiv on June 20 with two other visiting U.S. senators, McCain (Republican-Arizona) said it would be "disgraceful and shameful" for the West not to act as Russian President Vladimir Putin, in McCain's view, sought to dismember Ukraine.

McCain, one of the most vocal supporters in the U.S. Congress on arming Ukraine, said the Ukrainians had "proven they are willing to fight."

"This is shameful that we will not provide [the Ukrainians] with weapons to defend themselves. They are fighting with 20th-century weapons against Russia's 21st-century weapons. That's not a fair fight," McCain said.

Asked how to best counter Russian propaganda on the Ukraine conflict, McCain said RFE/RL and Voice of America had been crucial to winning the Cold War.

"One of the major factors in winning the Cold War without firing a shot was our information capabilities such as Radio Free Europe, Voice of America, it was beamed into the then-Soviet Union," McCain said.

Speaking alongside McCain, U.S. Senator Tom Cotton (Republican-Arkansas) said Western leaders had offered Putin numerous "off ramps" to deescalate the conflict in eastern Ukraine, but Putin, according to Cotton, had ignored these chances.

Vladimir Putin is facing a multi-million-pound legal action for his alleged role in the shooting down of a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet over eastern Ukraine

Last week, lawyers from McCue & Partners, the London law firm, flew to Ukraine for discussions about how to bring the case and where it should be filed. Victims' families will be invited to join the action, Censor.NET reports citing The Telegraph.

McCue and Partners have previously brought claims in the US courts against the former Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi for sponsoring IRA terrorism in Northern Ireland and on the British mainland.

The case against Putin could be worth hundreds of millions of pounds, possibly more, in potential damages. The action is likely to be brought through the US courts and could - if held liable - eventually see assets of Putin and those closest to him frozen if any resulting compensation is not paid.

The case would further damage relations between Putin and the West, but politicians would be powerless to prevent it.

There is overwhelming, but largely circumstantial, evidence that Russian-backed rebels mistakenly brought down the Boeing 777, killing all 298 people on board, having mistaken it for a Ukrainian military aircraft. It is almost certain the aircraft was brought down by a Russian-made SA-11 missile fired from a Buk mobile launcher that appeared to have crossed into Ukraine from Russia. In Russian
There can’t be any local elections in Donbas unless Ukraine declares amnesty to separatists, self-proclaimed Donetsk republic leader Denys Pushylin told journalists June 19 during talks in Minsk, Interfax reports June 20.

“Everything is stalled because there is no amnesty law. No local elections can be held without this law,” he said.

Pushylin ignored an important provision of the Minsk agreements whereby the amnesty can be declared only if the war stops and foreign troops leave Donbas.

Garbage from the Guardian. Basically quoting Putin throughout. Written by a man/ woman with no brain. Not worth reading, in my opinion
