They'll want Poroshenko to drop them a little, so they can appease Putin. They want to go back to business as usual with Russia. He still holds the gas transport to them over their heads and they've caved into it, instead of looking into alternatives. Both repeating what Chamberlain did. Give a little to get a little. They don't stand on democratic ideologies at all. IMO, they're just mobsters trying to get along with another mobster. Plain and simple. And who will pay in the end? The west will, by their hands.

As I've mentioned MANY times. Poroshenko CAN'T bow to any of Putin's desires. That will leave the door wide open for him to go for more. Of course, he knows he'll have another Maidan revolution, if he does cave in. Those two have asked Poroshenko to give up some. So far Poroshenko denied them, every time they requested. He's got to stand for Ukrainians, not for foreigners that their only interest is their own personal desires. That's got to end.

Tim Ash responds to new U.S. sanctions on Russia

“I think…it is meant to signal to Moscow that the US will negotiate hard, and that Moscow should not view sanctions moderation (erosion) as inevitable - the willingness of the US to maintain sanctions is strong is in effect the message.”

Responding to a U.S. Treasury announcement of sanctions on 17 individuals and 20 Russian and Crimean entities, Nomura International economist Timothy Ash offered the following comments at 11:36 today:

The timing of the US Treasury OFAC office's decision yesterday to announce the sanctioning of another 17 individuals and 20 corporate Russian and Crimean entities related to the conflict in Ukraine was interesting given that it came on the same day as the various sides to the conflict agreed another ceasefire to commence on the very same day, September 1, 2016.

It is worth reading through the OFAC justification for the move:

"To maintain the effectiveness of existing sanctions, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) today designated 37 individuals and entities under three Executive Orders (E.O.s) related to Russia and Ukraine. Today’s action is part of OFAC’s ongoing efforts to counter attempts to circumvent sanctions on Russia, to assist the private sector with sanctions compliance, and to foster a diplomatic resolution to the conflict in Ukraine. The action demonstrates Treasury’s steadfast commitment to maintain sanctions until Russia fully implements its commitments under the Minsk agreements, including a comprehensive cease fire, the withdrawal of all weapons and military personnel, and the restoration of Ukraine’s control over its side of the internationally recognized border. It also underscores the U.S. government’s opposition to Russia’s occupation of Crimea and our firm refusal to recognize its attempted annexation of the peninsula. These sanctions follow the recent extension of European Union sectoral sanctions, and together these steps demonstrate continued international unity in opposing Russia’s actions in Ukraine".

Some might argue that the move was somewhat aggressive at a time when there seems to be a move towards moderation on the ground as reflected in the new ceasefires attempt. That said we have seen on several occasions in the past sanctions iterations from the West on Russian/Crimean entities at times where tensions on the ground appear to be easing. In part this reflects the natural administrative process of maintaining the sanctions regime, with the US and its allies continually seeking to adjust the regime to ensure compliance and the effectiveness of the regime as attempts are naturally made to sidestep and get around that regime. This process tends to have its own timescale and dynamic, somewhat separate from the political decisions made over the sanctions regime and the political process relating to the conflict. Politicians set the scale/severity of the sanctions regime and OFAC and its other Western counterparts are tasked with maintaining the regime at the determined level of intensity/severity.

That said, I do think that there is some politicking going on here, and indeed from both sides, in what seems to be the run up to potential negotiations over Ukraine at the G20 summit in China this weekend.................

Kaczynski's plane crash was plotted by Kremlin, - Poland's defense minister

Polish Defense Minister Antoni Macierewicz said previously unknown facts about the 2010 plane crash near Smolensk that killed 96 people, including Polish President Lech Kaczynski, will be revealed shortly.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Polskie Radio, the official said it in an interview with Rzeczpospolita.

According to him, the latest developments in the case concern new recordings of conversations of the crashed plane's crew. In particular, he said, evidence will be presented that Russia's authorities and air traffic controllers were intent on making the aircraft fall.

"We have real evidence, including those concealed by the Miller's commission [previous commission probing the Smolensk tragedy - ed.]. We have horrific confessions by commission members," Macierewicz said.

According to him, the materials will be made public in October this year.

On April 10, 2010, a Tu-154 plane with a Polish government delegation on board crashed near the Russian town of Smolensk. The catastrophe killed eight crew members and 88 passengers, including President Lech Kaczynski. Both Poland and Russia continue investigating the circumstances around the tragedy.
