Russian President Putin's Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov later said that the helicopter was on a humanitarian mission. ...

People in Ukraine have sadly learnt what Russian "humanitarian aid" is. It has cost 10,000 lives here.

The more I hear from this Trump, the more he disgusts me.
This "correction" is a downright lie.
The guy is an ignorant baboon. I am sure he had no idea at all what he was talking about when he made his original statement.
How can such idiots end up as Republican candidates for President?
Answer - Money.
The same money that put baboon Yanukovich in as President of Ukraine.
If you have enough money you can become President of Ukraine, or of the USA. It doesn't matter how stupid you are.

She means well, but - her idea of negotiating with Plotnitsky and Zacharchenko - absolute idiotic thick stupid terrorists - is itself a dumb idea.
Savchenko has not impressed me. She is simply - well - a simple person. Good ideals, but no real practicality or solidarity.
You cannot openly negotiate with dumb terrorists. The Minsk process was set up to include this.

Court arrests ex-head of Regions Party faction Yefremov for 60 days

Court arrests ex-head of Regions Party faction Yefremov for 60 days
http://en.interfax.com.ua/news/general/361359.html
....Yefremov was detained on suspicion of encroaching on Ukraine's territorial integrity at Boryspil Airport in Kyiv on July 30 after he boarded an Austrian Airlines plane bound for Vienna. Yefremov is suspected of a number of criminal offences, including taking possession of a property, premeditated attempts to change the borders of Ukrainian territory in breach of the Constitution, and organizing and assisting the efforts to create the self-proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic (Articles 191, 110 and 258 of the Ukrainian Criminal Code).....

Personally I'd shoot him - that would save a lot of public money, and significantly improve the quality of the gene pool in Ukraine.

And Trump is completely ignorant on world matters. Dummkopf.

Mr. Trump and Spineless Republicans [Engl; NYT]

Post by Nelson on Tue Aug 02, 2016 7:10 am

Mr. Trump and Spineless Republicans
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/02/opinion/mr-trump-and-spineless-republicans.html?_r=0
Just when it seems that Donald Trump could not display more ignorance and bad judgment or less of a moral compass, he comes up with another ignominy or two. This weekend he denigrated the parents of a fallen American military hero and suggested that if elected he might recognize Russia’s claims to Ukraine and end sanctions.....

On Sunday on ABC, Mr. Trump’s comments on Ukraine demonstrated even less knowledge about world affairs than suspected. His remarks also reinforced suspicions that he is sympathetic toward Vladimir Putin, Russia’s authoritarian, anti-Western president.....


====

I like the phrase - even less knowledge about world affairs than suspected...
Basically saying - we know he is stupid, but he is even more stupid than we ever imagined.

Savchenko ready meet leaders of self-proclaimed republics in eastern Ukraine
http://en.interfax.com.ua/news/general/361468.html?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
====

The whole of the west's position has been geared towards negotiating with Putin, not with his puppet masters.
And Savchenko is trying to tear all that up.
Plotnisky and Zakcharcnko - two dumbnuts, for sure.
I recall the saying - "You can't talk sense to a fool".
This is surely true. And may also apply with respect to Savchenko. Well meaning, but naive. And losing popularity.
You might as well pick anybody off the street in her place. Surely, there are millions of Ukrainians far more intelligent than her.

.....“He’s not going to go into Ukraine, all right? You can mark it down. You can put it down. You can take it anywhere you want.”
But when the host, George Stephanopoulous, pointed out that some Russian troops have already been in eastern Ukraine for nearly two years, the Republican presidential nominee backpedalled and became defensive.
He said: “OK, well, he’s there in a certain way.
“But I’m not there. You have Obama there. ...

TRUMP: one of the dimmest and most ignorant people on the planet.
Watch this (you won't be disappointed)...



"I was not involved in that. I was not involved in that..."

The problem is - his brain is not involved either. It is not involved in processing any information that goes in through his ears.
Trump has to be the dumbest person ever to run as President.
I remember Dan Quayle... VP... he was pretty thick, but Trump... he beats everybody hands down.

Ukraine reduces gas imports in July by nearly 32% [Engl]

Ukraine reduces gas imports in July by nearly 32%
http://www.unian.info/economics/1449022-ukraine-reduces-gas-imports-in-july-by-nearly-32.html
===
The oil price is fairly stable - around 40 dolllars a barrel. So I don't see the gas price changing much for the next few months.
So - this should not be a problem for Ukraine and next winter. I think there's already quite a bit in storage.

Shortly before the accident he was involved in a conflict, during which he made a shot with his handgun and started escaping from police officers in his Toyota. ...

I expect him to be let off. In Yanukovich's time, the dead driver would be prosecuted!
Can we expect justice in this case when Tymoshenko sits in the Rada?! I doubt it. We will see.

The Secret of the St. Princess Olga
Print article Published: Tuesday, 02 August 2016 14:03

https://www.occrp.org/en/investigations/5523-the-secret-of-the-st-princess-olga
Igor Sechin, 55, is considered one of the most powerful men in Russia, after his long-time friend and boss, Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin. Due to his tough character and close ties to secret services , Sechin is sometimes referred to as Darth Vader by Russian and international media.
Sechin has been working with Putin since the early 1990s. When Putin became the head of the Committee for Foreign Affairs in the St. Petersburg Mayor’s Office in 1991, Sechin was appointed his chief of staff. The two became close.
..... From 2004 till 2008, Sechin worked as deputy chief of Putin’s administration. When Putin headed the government in 2008, Sechin was appointed deputy prime minister.
Since 2012, Sechin has been the chief executive officer of Rosneft, Russia’s state-owned energy giant.....
