Turchynov announces two scenarios that Russia can implement to try to conquer Ukraine

Russia may start full-scale military aggression against Ukraine or continue hybrid tactics

"In the attempt to conquer Ukraine, one of two scenarios may be implemented both in short- and long-term," Turchynov said during the presentation of the Security and Defense Sector Information Center at the NSDC in Kyiv on Friday.

According to the NSDC secretary of Ukraine, the first scenario is the most dangerous one – the military scenario, namely, a full-scale military aggression, which is actually dangerous for the Kremlin itself, but something Russia is preparing to do all the same.

As the proof of his words, Turchynov quoted the information about Russia's drawing its armed units to the border with Ukraine and the militarization of Crimea.

"The second scenario is no less dangerous. This scenario is the so-called hybrid warfare, and it currently remains the most likely of the two. It involves the continuation of low-intensity hostilities in Donbas, but does not rule out the possibility of local offensives by Russian regular and irregular units, as well as subversive activities in the rest of country," the NSDC secretary of Ukraine said........

Ukraine Parliament wants to recognize genocide of Ukrainians in 1919-1951

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has registered a draft resolution "On commemoration of victims of the genocide committed by the Polish government against Ukrainians in 1919-1951," according to a post on the parliament's website.

The draft document was prepared by Ukrainian MP Oleh Musiy (non-affiliated deputy), who posted a scanned copy of the resolution on his Facebook page. The text of the draft resolution and explanatory notes have not been published on the parliament's website. The document stated, "The declaration of independence of Poland on November 11, 1918, led to great joy and justice for the Polish people, but at the same time, it caused great sorrow and disaster for hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians." The document also noted that the history of Ukraine under Polish rule is "a history of the genocide of the Ukrainian people, systematically and consistently committed by the Polish state." The draft resolution said, "For several decades the Ukrainian people had been suffering and they died only because they were Ukrainians. Hundreds of thousands were deported and tens of thousands of Ukrainian civilians – citizens of the Polish state – killed. It was the bitter result of Wielkopolska’s (Greater Poland) ruling, which also held the Polish people as hostages." According to the draft resolution, during that period "the Ukrainian people were fighting for freedom on their own land and the Poles were fighting for something that did not belong to them. The exact number of victims of those events has still not been determined." "The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine pays tribute to all victims of crimes committed by the Polish government against its citizens during 1919-1951. The government proclaims March 24 as Remembrance Day for Ukrainians who were victims of the genocide committed by the Polish state in 1919-1951," the draft resolution stated. These "painful historical lessons" should not, however, impact current relations between the two states, according to the parliament. "The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine expresses its sincere gratitude to Poland for its support of Ukraine in the fight against foreign aggression," the draft read........
I Ran the C.I.A. Now I’m Endorsing Hillary Clinton.
....President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia was a career intelligence officer, trained to identify vulnerabilities in an individual and to exploit them. That is exactly what he did early in the primaries. Mr. Putin played upon Mr. Trump’s vulnerabilities by complimenting him. He responded just as Mr. Putin had calculated.

Mr. Putin is a great leader, Mr. Trump says, ignoring that he has killed and jailed journalists and political opponents, has invaded two of his neighbors and is driving his economy to ruin. Mr. Trump has also taken policy positions consistent with Russian, not American, interests — endorsing Russian espionage against the United States, supporting Russia’s annexation of Crimea and giving a green light to a possible Russian invasion of the Baltic States.

In the intelligence business, we would say that Mr. Putin had recruited Mr. Trump as an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation.....
