Investments in agriculture grow by 73.8%

Investments in agriculture grow by 73.8%

Capital investments in Ukraine’s agriculture in the first 6 months of 2016 amounted to UAH17 bn ($680,000) on the similar period in 2015, UNIAN reports Sept. 1.

The growth is explained by a comparatively stable economic situation, the Ukrainian Club of Agribusiness says.

Investments in agriculture are the largest compared with other industry sectors.

The statistics show that agriculture is attractive to investors.

However, given the wear and tear of production facilities, Ukraine needs ten times more investments, experts note.

More MH17 docs released, Dutch govt. assumed Russian separatist to be responsible

Post by Admin on Thu Sep 01, 2016 9:36 am

More MH17 docs released, Dutch govt. assumed Russian separatist to be responsible

A court forced the Ministry of Security and Justice to publish more documents on the disaster with flight MH17 thanks to a joint call on the Freedom of Information Act by broadcasters NOS and RTL Nieuws and the Volkskrant. A number of new details were revealed, including that the Dutch government assumed from the first that Russian separatists were behind the downing of the plane, according to NL Times.

The documents released are the interpretation in reports of the National Coordinator for Counterterrorism and Security written shortly after the disaster. It involves facts over what happened, the perpetrators and large problems expected to follow. RTL Nieuws published the documents on their website, NL Times reported. The Dutch government quickly realized that no one could have survived the crash and that there were probably many Dutch victims. They were right – 196 of the 298 victims were Dutch. "Given the images of the crash, the probability of survivors is nil", the documents read. And: "(…) it is very likely that some of the victims are of Dutch nationality. Given the holiday period it is likely that there were several children on board." Officials also worried about major emotional unrest the disaster will cause. "The event will cause a lot of emotions given the high number of (Dutch) victims… If there are children among the victims that will increase the emotions… If there are signs that the plane was shot down, this will create an additional shock, especially if it was done intentionally." The government held a close eye on opinion polls, the media and comments on social media...............

EU to relaunch trilateral gas talks with Ukraine and Russia

The trilateral gas talks provide unique opportunities to Kyiv, Brussels, and Moscow to discuss gas supplies before winter heating season start, according to the European Commission Vice-President for the Energy Union, Maros Sefcovic.

"We want to re-launch the successful trilateral format of gas talks involving Ukraine, Russia, and the European Commission. In the past, this forum has proven its usefulness. Russia as an exporter, Ukraine as a transit country and the EU as the main importer share a common interest of predictability. In this sense, I am also looking forward to meeting with Russian authorities in the next weeks", Maros Sefcovic wrote on the FB page of the EU Delegation to Ukraine.............

Russia reinstates Soviet jamming to silence criticism of its occupation of Crimea

Post by Admin on Thu Sep 01, 2016 11:47 am

Russia reinstates Soviet jamming to silence criticism of its occupation of Crimea

Russia’s censor has blocked the Ukraine Crisis Media Centre over a press conference given by the world-renowned Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Dzhemiliev and others. In it they called for a civil blockade until Russia released Crimean political prisoners, stopped crushing freedom of speech, etc. Russia’s response has been to step up repression.

The ban on UCMC is just the latest way in which the current regime in Russia is resurrecting all the worst Soviet methods in its efforts to prevent Crimeans and Russians from hearing the undeniable truth that Russia is occupying Ukrainian Crimea. It is probably no accident that those reporting the Crimea Civil Blockade have been targeted, since that blockade has highlighted the degree to which Crimea is dependent on Ukraine.

Crimean journalist Mykola Semena is facing a possible 5-year prison sentence for an article about the civic blockade. Now Roskomnadzor has formally warned the Ukraine Crisis Media Centre that it is being blocked over the original press conference announcing the Blockade.

Roskomnadzor informed the Centre that “at the demand of the Russian Prosecutor General”, the resource centre’s site was to be blocked on the territory of the Russian Federation, with this meaning that it will apply to Crimea under Russian occupation.

It is claimed that the press conference contained “calls to mass disturbances, extremist activity, participation in mass (public) events carried out with violation of established procedure”.

The Russian censor preferred to omit the uncomfortable detail that even if one word of the accusation was correct, the civic blockade was indisputably on Ukrainian territory where Russia’s repressive anti-protest legislation does not apply.

Roskomnadzor states that the Centre “must immediately remove the information”. Having done so, it can apply for a check to be carried out of this and access to be reinstated.

The Centre has no intention of removing the material. It says that the Russian Prosecutor General should not forget that it is Russia that annexed the homeland of the Crimean Tatars – the indigenous people of Crimea............
