30 attacks by Putin's forces on Ukraine yesterday. Update - 5 soldiers wounded.

Warm again, but cloudy. Strange after the heat of yesterday. 20 at 0900.
I noticed 34 at Ivano Frankivsk yesterday on the news. Toasty. Update - 28 at 1600.

I didn't realise that Ukraine are actually out of Euro 2016. They can't get into 3rd place, even if they beat Germany 20-0.
Heads to heads count in the case of ties. Another match with fighting last night. Also flares on pitch. Croatia...

Opinion. I think she is running for President.
She is on tv every night - and, at the moment, those interviewing her are giving her a nice time.
She is also heading to the EU capitals for talks. But who precisely does she represent?
Batkivshina don't know what to do with her now. Tymoshenko wants to be president, but Savchenko is far more popular than Tymoshenko - currently.
Savchenko was talking about Putin. She said that Putin knows no borders. For him, any country is free game, territory he can conquer.
She also said that more sanctions need to be brought in. Not fewer. Much that she says is common sense.
