"Ukraine will be able to fulfill all of its social obligations to people who remain in temporarily occupied territories after full implementation of the Minsk agreements, after Ukrainian rule of law is restored there, after Ukrainian territorial integrity is restored. All of the payments are being allocated and accumulated, so as soon as a person moves for permanent r esidence in the territory controlled by Ukraine and receives a status of a displaced person, he or she receives all of the payments in full," Rozenko noted.

Medvedchuk did everything to benefit Russia under his peacemaker’s disguise, the general said.

Skipalsky called Medvedchuk-headed ‘Ukrainian Choice’ organization one of subversive structures.

More likely, however, was that the Russian refusal to attend was based in politics rather than theology. Geopolitics, after all, have prevented Orthodox bishops from uniting since their last meeting in the year 787....

I slightly "improved" the English of the original heading.
Will Ukraine start buying gas from Russia again? That's a "no-no" for some people.
Whatever Ukraine does, you can expect the opposition - Tymoshenko, Liashko et al - to criticize.
I think the price is around 167. Better than 215, or Tymo's 450, that is for sure..
