Ukraine resumes gas imports from Hungary

There was some talk about resuming deliveries from Russia.
Russia finally offered a realistic price, BUT - they also wanted Ukraine to pay for gas in the occupied territories. Stupid.

Russia may have lied about losing a gunship to ISIS

....But according to newspaper and expert reports, the helicopter was not an Mi-25 (the export version of Russia’s old Mi-24 attack helicopter), but Russia’s new state-of-the-art Mi-35M helicopter, which first appeared in Syria in December and, crucially, is operated only by the Russian military.....

....“Even if it was an [antitank guided missile], immediately calling it a TOW seems like a deliberate attempt to cast negative assertions around a U.S.-approved program,” Binnie said....

This is what losing your newsroom looks like in Russia The reporters at ‘RBC’ meet their new bosses (Full transcript)
https://meduza.io/en/feature/2016/07/12/this-is-what-losing-your-newsroom-looks-like-in-russia

[Not too long to read. An interesting insight into how censorship works in Russia. Two extracts - ]

Elizaveta Golikova: Guys, let's stick to specific questions, and you'll get specific answers. That way we won't start talking about the double line again, and we can list the specific qualities of good stories.

[inaudible]

RBC journalist: Alright, I'll be the idiot here. We've read in the media that the reports that caused us all these problems were, for example, the reports about [Kirill] Shamalov [allegedly the husband of Vladimir Putin's daughter, Katerina] and about Putin's daughter. Do you think these reports crossed the double line? Because for us, as far as I understand it, they didn't cross the double line. These were good, professional reports. According to your understanding, did they cross it or didn't they?

Igor Trosnikov: I'll be honest with you: I'm not going to answer a question like that. You want too much.

RBC journalist: But this is a specific example. You asked for specific questions, and that's what I've asked.
===


....Igor Trosnikov: If people here are thinking that you can always be direct—be so direct with everything—it isn't so. It's not allowed at Kommersant, it's not allowed at Interfax, it's not allowed at Vedomosti, and, as experience now shows, it's not allowed here. Yes? But this is our profession. It's your profession. And I'm still hoping that this will be our newsroom going forward. I think we should all have an interest in preserving this at its best and highest quality. But I can't tell you that there are no restrictions whatsoever. They exist. If people here think there aren't any restrictions, then they're better off writing on Facebook. You can still get away with it there.

RBC journalist: They're locking people up for that now, too.....

Chernovetsky. Also known as "Cosmos".
He was quite popular as Mayor of Kiev, for a very brief time. He built up a following in one of the evangelical churches. Always useful for votes.
But clearly not quite the "Christian" he tried to make himself out to be! Admittedly this is his son, but....

.....At the same time, people's deputies from the Radical party faction continue their sitting protest at the Rada's rostrum. ...



It looks like Yulia Tymoshenko is not sitting down because she doesn't want to get her 10,000 dollar white satin Louis Vuitton dress dirty.
Yulia - fighting corruption the only way she knows how... LOL.
And there are still idiots who love her. And the Kyiv Post - Taras Kuzio - probably on her payroll. I'd bet my house on it.
Don't forget - there are business links between the Kyiv Post owner, and Tymoshenko. - going back a long long way.

If you want to watch the idiots who represent Ukraine, they are currently live on Rada tv. Now at 1200 noon. Ukraine time.
