Inter TV channel executed order of Kremlin on informational defeat of Turchynov, Yatseniuk, and Avakov, - Interior Minister

E-mails of former Inter TV channel employee, Russian citizen Mariya Stolyarova and her colleague Leonid Muravyev with their Moscow curators reveal major targets of Russian propaganda in Ukraine.

Interior Minister of Ukraine Arsen Avakov wrote on his Facebook page, Censor.NET informs.

"Turchynov [NSDC secretary- ed.], Yatseniuk [former PM - ed.] and Avakov are major targets of the Kremlin," Avakov wrote.

"Anti-Ukrainian orders received by Stolyarova and Muravyev in August 2015 included tasks to organize a wave of black PR against a number of Ukrainian politicians. The first item on this task was a package of dirty materials against NSDC Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov."

According to the interior minister, the 'order' also included former PM Arsenii Yatseniuk, himself, deputy chairman of Verkhovna Rada committee on culture Mykola Knaizhytskyi, chairman of Verkhovna Rada committee on national security and defense Serhii Pashynskyi, and others.

Avakov stressed that the Russian journalists from Inter TV channel were "fulfilling the Kremlin's order on informational destruction" of those who were deemed enemies by the Russian authorities. The minister believes there are more pro-Russian media in Ukraine who continue operating freely in the country.

As reported, on Aug. 3, May 2015 correspondence between employee of the "DPR Ministry of Public Security" Tatiana Yegorova and representatives of Ukraine's TV channels leaked online. One version attributes the leak to hackers, while another one suggests that Yegorova herself is behind it. The leaked correspondence reveals that the staff of Inter, Ukraina and Donbas TV stations were agreeing their stories with representatives of the so-called "DPR."

In particular, Russian journalist Leonid Muravyev (who was trying to get employed at Inter in spring of 2015 but was expelled from Ukraine) mentions some Mariya in his e-mail. Most likely, he is talking about Mariya Stolyarova, former creative producer of Inter's "Podrobytsi Tyznhia" news show. Inter's top manager Nazim Bedirov believes the e-mails are fake.

Inter channel reporter Roman Bochkala, whose name was mentioned in the e-mails, said the communication could possibly be real. Bochkala left the channel after the publication of the e-mails. In Ukrainian/український
Russia refuses to pay death benefits to relatives of military killed in Donbas, - Schlosberg

Most of the families of Russian servicemen killed in the Donbas do not get the promised 2 million rubles (approx. $28,171) compensation from the state.
Russian politician and human rights activist from Pskov Lev Schlosberg said on air of Echo of Moscow, Censor.NET reports.

"Originally, it was a secret war [in the Donbas - ed.]. Originally, it was a lie by the state, a lie known to thousands, I think, even tens of thousands of those from military families... And the 2014 situation was a situation of complete intellectual breakdown of Russia's state machine, when the state lost its head and the ability to adequately assess the situation after the Crimean events. There was absolute certainty that the so-called triumphal Crimean campaign would repeat itself in the east of Ukraine... When it became clear that the Ukrainian military defended the country's east, it was a huge surprise for the political and military leadership of Russia.

"Accordingly, they did not expect either military actions or losses. They were not ready to explain it either to public or to the military. Our state is not going to recognize this terrible mortal sin of war in eastern Ukraine committed by the Russian armed forces, since it will have to announce the death toll - thousands of people.

The entire territory of the Donbas has come under the rule of semi-legal authorities, obscure institutions and lawlessness. The failure of legal field is the worst thing to happen. And, in my opinion, this stalemate prevails," he said.

"When the number of killed soldiers [in the Donbas - ed.] rose dramatically, many of them were retroactively labeled as "cossacks" and people [relatives - ed.] did not get anything at all [compensation - ed.]... As veterans of other wars, they were given funeral benefits. But not a penny was received from the state for their deaths, after a way to mask these losses was found.

"I have talked with many officers, including senior officers, who call the war in Ukraine a crime against the state. Now they are silent, they talk about it only in private conversations... The fact that they keep silent just shows the utter level of fear. This is a very sad sign for society... Because people believe that their public statement may break their life and, unfortunately, they are not ready to speak at such a high price," he concluded. In Ukrainian/український
The Washington Post: Russia has never observed the cease-fire

The reason for this analysis was the statement by US presidential candidate Donald Trump that "Russia will not go to Ukraine"

While the attention of Western countries focused on other issues, Russia has strengthened its positions in Donbas increasing number of attacks.

It writes in his editorial in the American edition of The Washington Post .

Leads The Washington Post and the data transfer of Russian arms and soldiers to occupied Donbas. The total number of Russian troops, according to NATO reaches 10 thousand.

Based on the data of the Ukrainian intelligence publication cites facts about crossing the Ukrainian-Russian border in the area, controlled only by Russia, a considerable number of weapons.

"And this, despite repeated Russia's commitments to withdraw such weapons back from the front line and put them under control," - writes The Washington Post.

To cover the Russian operations in the Donbas Putin uses tricks, deception and falsehood, say journalists. And while its diplomats agree with European colleagues on the cessation of hostilities, Russian troops continued to shell the Ukrainian land.

Criticizes publication and position of the administration of President Barack Obama on the situation in Eastern Ukraine. Journalists point out that most of the plans for a ceasefire was taken with the participation of US Secretary of State John Kerry. However, once Russia violates agreements politician expresses outrage, and then sent to Moscow to negotiate a new agreement. In Ukrainian/український
