How many innocent people in Ukraine die DAILY, from auto accidents? I can only imagine.

I drove through Ukraine in early May, for six days. Not even in New York or Miami are they that out of touch with the value of life. Not only do the road conditions have to be dealt with, as you can see in the video below while I was driving in Ukraine Carpathians, but also the crazed drivers.

The government MUST make the sentencing of driving violations MUCH MORE stricter, or many more lives will be lost.  Who really wants to drive in conditions like this?

Writing in Facebook June 24, Ukraine Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin says he is disappointed by PACE resolution calling for steps toward Russia.

The economic sanctions were imposed on Russia in response to its aggression against Ukraine, Klimkin writes.

 “A number of clear-cut conditions were set as to when the sanctions can be revised. Has Russia complied with the conditions – No. Has Russia admitted its mistakes? – No,” Klimkin writes.

 “Russia is continuing to deliberately ignore all international demands to stop its aggression in Ukraine. That is why, PACE calls to resume dialog with Russia are giving a blow to PACE reputation,” Klimkin says.

 “Further concessions to the aggressor will send a signal to Russia that it can continue to wipe its feet on the basic principles of the Council of Europe,” the foreign minister says.

Russians Closer to Border Hold More Pro-Ukrainian Views

Russians living closer to the Ukrainian border are more likely to have favorable views towards the country, a report revealed Friday.

The report, written by Princeton University fellow Nikita Melnikov and economist Sergey Guriev, found that Russians living closer to the Ukrainian conflict felt more empathy with Ukrainian citizens.

Attitudes towards the country were measured using key search words from Russian based search engine Yandex. Data was gathered from 79 Russian regions during the period between Jan. 20, 2014 and July 6, 2015, with key phrases such as “charity,” “social security,” “adoption,” “blood donation” and “help for children” used as evidence of sympathetic feelings towards Ukraine.

Respondents were grouped using a number of factors, including local inflation, vulnerability to changes in the ruble’s value and average monthly regional salary, as well as distance from the conflict zone.

The report also showed that in regions closer to the conflict, sympathetic views increased along with the intensity of the fighting — measured by the frequency of the term “war in Ukraine” in the media.
