51 attacks by Putin's Russian forces on Ukraine yesterday.
Update: no dead, but 4 wounded

22 at 0900. The coolest morning for over a week; primarily because of rain and thunderstorms last night.
But it will warm up again. High maybe near 30 again today.
I've heard of several deaths in Romania due to the hot weather, but nothing in Ukraine thus far.

The Ukrainian Press:
Over the past few days the press here has been full of reports about Brexit - the UK leaving the EU.
Most reports concern how this decision will impact on Ukraine; people are obviously hoping that there will be no major impact.
Every day since Brexit there have been discussions on various tv channels concerning these problems.
This morning the big story is the terrorist attack at Istanbul airport. Many Ukrainians go to Turkey for holidays - no need for a visa.

The Communists were offering $9,000 for signatures under relevant inquiries.

"On June 24, SBU officers detained an intermediary of the Communists in the city of Pivdenne, the Kharkiv region, during a bribe to a city council official for the federalization inquiry. Upon a request of the law enforcement agency, city deputies imitated putting the matter on the agenda - this helped the SBU gathering required evidence and detaining more persons involved in this operation of the Russian secret services," SBU added.

According to the agency, it was not the first attempt of 'buying' of legal initiative in the Kharkiv region. Similar attempts were made in late April in Zmiiv and Volchanka, which failed.

In the special operation, law enforcers have detained all known participants of the criminal group. Former MP Alla Aleksandrovska has been detained under article 208 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. Her son, who is hiding in Russia, has been informed of charges and put on the wanted list.
