...."Thus, both the Ukrainian side of the JCCC and the OSCE SMM, who personally inspected the shelling site of the Donetsk city residential areas, are unanimous in their conclusions. Shelling of a residential building at 35a Biriuzova str. (Donetsk) was carried out from the direction and position which are, unfortunately, are not yet available for the Ukrainian Armed Forces. However, given the presence of a large number of weapons of the illegal armed groups, which should have withdrawn them from the line of contact at a certain distance according to the Minsk agreements long ago, as well as the received information, one can speak about another cynical provocation of the militants' troops against the people of Ukraine, who are forced to currently live in the militants' held city," the JCCC concluded.

Nine people beat, kicked and choked soldier for participation in ATO in Horyshni Plavni, - volunteer

Nine people beat, kicked and choked soldier for participation in ATO in Horyshni Plavni, - volunteer
A group of nine persons has beaten an ex-soldier of the 93d brigade for participation in the anti-terrorist operation (ATO). This is the second incident of the kind in the Poltava region.
"Last night (June 26. - Ed.) an ATO soldier was severely beaten in Horyshni Plavni. Nine nonhumans - five females and four males - beat and kicked him. Then they started choking him. Dima doesn't drink alcohol or smoke; he served as soldier of the 93d brigade at the Donetsk airport. Three magic letters brought them to their senses - the SBU. When the police did not want to do an investigation, the word press helped; when they did not want to put him in the hospital, I had to call the head physician," she told.
"I ask the press for help. We are not going to retreat, and we are already pressed. This is the second case in the region. They should be charged with household separatism and spent some years in prison," she summarized.

Police didn't want to do anything. Medical people also. Sick.

Elections cannot take place now due to objective reasons: it is dangerous in Donbas, - Merkel

Post by Admin on Mon Jun 27, 2016 10:53 am

It is impossible to hold the elections in the occupied Donbas at the moment due to objective reasons.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said at a briefing after her today's meeting with Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Hroisman in Berlin, Censor.NET reports citing 112 TV Channel.

"We-re talking ( in the Minsk process - Ed.) not only about political, but also about other issues. The elections cannot take place now due to objective reasons: it is dangerous in the Donbas. We need to develop a joint plan for reconciliation and cease-fire," she said.

Merkel said nothing has been decided regarding the political negotiations, so she refused to give an exact answer on what might happen.

Holding of elections in the occupied Donbas was provided in the Minsk agreements, signed Feb. 12, 2015.
