News -
I'm reading this morning of the Russian terrorists firing 39 times at the Ukrainian troops and civilians.
No dealths reported as of yet. But sadly, normally there are deaths every day.

Weather -
22C predicted today.
Admin made me get up at 0430 to see if it was raining, and it was!
That is good news for many here. It was still raining a little at 0900. But now,
at 10.00 blue sky and sunshine.
Having travelled quite a bit across Ukraine during the past few weeks I am amazed by how many people grow their own produce.
You can best see this from a train. By the track side miles and miles of small plantings of potatoes, cabbage, and the like.
For many, these small gardens are their pensions.
And so rain is very important. I hope it also went further south. I know the Vinnitsa and Odessa areas have been quite dry.

Reporters -
Steve Rosenberg - bbc moscow - seems to have completely disappeared off the map.
At the moment the bbc have stuck a young kid in Donetsk. Tom Burridge.
He was based in Spain for 3 years. He studied Politics and Spanish at Bristol University, UK.
Today he has posted a video report on the bbc site. Absolute naivity. It almost makes me cry for British "journalism".
He clearly has no understanding of Russian, which is essential in Donetsk, or what is really going on there - behind the propaganda.  
I just hope he doesn't make friends with Shaun Walker of Russiaprofile - Guardian, or you can soon expect mega-Kremlin-propaganda from the bbc.
Can't the bbc find somebody who can speak the language? It is vital - otherwise you are so impressionable...
Remember that idiot from The Telegraph in the Donbass - David Blair. Great on Africa. But he should have stayed there.
Blair's most stupid statement - that Ukraine is using "excessive force" - against Putin's 3000 tanks - I will never forget. Total naive idiot. Like a fish out of water.
Yes - Burridge is ok in Spain because he can read and write in Spanish to some degree. But Donetsk?
You might as well send Odessite to report in Cambodia.

Well, round about mid-day I posted a story about an American journalist Simon Ostrovsky - whose accreditation is not being renewed...

Long-time Moscow correspondent Helen Womack bids a reluctant farewell to Russia, after 30 years
One teacher had travelled all the way from the provincial city of Tver to lay two red roses on Nemtsov's coffin. "After this," she said, "I will go home and close my door and shut my mouth. All hope is lost."
It was heartbreaking. Bad as was the killing – and the subsequent arrest of the usual Chechen suspects – I found myself even more appalled by the general indifference to the murder. An opinion poll showed that a third of those asked "felt nothing in particular" about it.
"Well, who was Nemtsov? He was a nobody really," was a common reaction.
"He must have deserved it," said others.
This was how Stalin's secret police could take away millions in the middle of the night and send them to their deaths. It was possible because fellow citizens chose not to see, closing their eyes to the terror, as long as it didn't affect them. Warning of the sense I have of creeping fascism in Russia, I feel my cries fall on deaf ears. History will show. I hope I am wrong.

Russia does not call for or encourage what the Russians are going to fight in the Donbass, but in reality it is impossible to prevent this. This was stated by Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev.

"We have no one to this call and do not encourage this. But realistically, it is impossible to prevent this. After all, 2 million refugees from the Ukraine did not just come to Russia - they have relatives and friends here. They tell them about the atrocities that are taking place there. A further trigger emotions that people go there and take part in the fighting ", - assured Patrushev in an interview with "Kommersant"

Moreover, he noted that no terrorist groups in the Lugansk and Donetsk regions there.

According to him, now in Ukraine, even in the same family relatives often take diametrically opposed positions and cussing.

"This civil conflict. We are ready to provide and support the Ukrainian refugees who, by the way, neither the EU nor the US do not accept - but to go into civil conflict inexpedient, "- said Patrushev.

He also added that Russia has already done all that is necessary for the implementation of the Minsk Agreement, but Ukraine for its part, does not fulfill their supposed.

"We do not understand why Ukraine is so obstinate. No troubles do not happen to them if they carried out these agreements. But they do not want to sit at the negotiating table with representatives of the militia of Donetsk and Lugansk. And it needs to be done "- he said.

However, he said that Russia can not close the border.

"What do we organize the blockade, as it was in Leningrad? For the entire population of Donbass? We practically feed them now, there have living conditions are extremely difficult. Although the Minsk Agreement states that the Ukrainians themselves must contribute to the normalization of socio-economic situation in the Lugansk and Donetsk. But they do not do it! "- Summed up the Russian official.

Recall Patrushev said earlier that the United States are trying to prove that Russia is a party to the conflict in Ukraine, but the US is supposedly are the initiators of the conflict. In Russian

Very possible to stop it. Block your borders for starters. This guy's so full of bullshit. Of course he's talking to his population, to show Ukraine being the aggressor.

Russian Consumer Rights Protection Society (OZPP) recommends Russian tourists to get permission to enter the Ukrainian authorities in the occupied Crimea, and also advised to refrain from purchasing property and goods in the territory of the peninsula. Instructions for visiting the annexed Crimea Russian citizens posted on the website OZPP. Experts warn that tourists visiting the Peninsula without a permit in Ukraine can wait for the prosecution, and the purchase of real estate is recommended to contact the Ukrainian state authorities.

Interregional public organization OZPP, the site where, according to the legislation of the Russian Federation, the status of the organization designated as a foreign agent has issued a memo to visit the occupied Crimea. As reported by "Kommersant" in OZPP, the organization has responded to consumer appeal (number of appeals did not specify). According to the authors, the lack of agreement between Russia and Ukraine, legitimizing so-called annexation of the Crimea, from the point of view of international law defines the peninsula as "occupied territory", so Russian consumers at risk by visiting the Crimea and making any transactions there.

"Russian tourists in Crimea without the permission of the authorities of Ukraine, is a violator of the Law of Ukraine on the status of the occupied territories - said in pamyatke.- In this regard thereto may be sanctioned by both the Ukraine and from other countries' UN-members. In some cases, criminal prosecution and international wanted list. "

The Criminal Code (art. 332-1) for violation of the order of entry into the territory of the country "in order to harm the interests of the state" provides for up to three years in prison for the same acts committed by an organized group, - up to eight years. For violation of the order of entry and exit without intent against the interests of Ukraine relies administrative fine or arrest for 15 days.

The authors of the memo advised Russian citizens to obtain permission Ukrainian border guards, crossing the Russian-Ukrainian border through the checkpoint in the Kherson region. The document states that the citizen has the right to seek compensation from the travel agency when she sold him a ticket, without warning about possible risks. Human rights activists, citing figures from the Prosecutor General of Ukraine, reports that are currently filed 97 criminal cases on tourist ships captains, who, without permission, went to the ports of the occupied Crimea.

Source in the Ukrainian government confirmed that "the entry of foreigners and stateless persons in the temporarily occupied territory, as well as travel allowed only by special permission through the checkpoints of entry and exit." However, in practice, to control the movement of Russians trains and vehicles in the Crimea Ukrainian authorities may only through Novoalekseevka, but these checkpoint almost nobody uses.

"On the real danger nobody says, but the potential possibility of persecution of Russian citizens there. Priority of international law, the adoption of one amendment to the Constitution (the so-called accession of Crimea to RF.- ed.) Can not cross, "- said the head of OZPP Mikhail Anshakov.

OZPP also recommends Russian citizens to refrain from acquiring property in the annexed Crimea. Since the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine blocked the access of the current pro-Russian administration of the Crimea and Sevastopol to the State Register of Ukraine, which made registration of real estate transactions, it is virtually impossible to confirm the rights of the owner of real estate, check the legal purity of the object, its history. According to experts of the public organization, it creates a field for the commission of fraud related to the sale of multiple objects of different parties. Transactions in case of emergency, according to human rights defenders, it is better to make the territory controlled by the Ukrainian authorities. In Russian

Ukraine would be cut off from the Black Sea, and Russia "to protect its interests in the region for years to come," the report said. To implement this scenario, the Kremlin will need 23 to 28 days and from 80 to 112 thousand. The military, and to control the occupied territories - up to 120 thousand. Soldiers. At the same time the aggressor may have difficulties in crossing the Dnieper.

The third scenario, according to Stratfor, is capturing the eastern part of the country along the line of the Dnieper. The river will then be used as a defense line, "Dnipro - the river is very wide in most places. Along its course a few places to cross, which means that these points can be monitored. This is the most sensible option for Russia, if she wants to go on the offensive and to prepare a good defense line. "

At the same time, for the realization of this scenario would take the Russian forces very much - from 91 to 135 thousand. Soldiers to attack and up to 260 thousand. Man to retain control over the territory. "Given the fact that the Army of the Russian Federation is about 280 thousand. Military, such an operation would require significant parts of the Russian army, and in the case of the fierce resistance of the local population - even engaging all members of the ground troops might not be enough," - note the authors of the document.

Also, experts have called Stratfor least three possible scenarios attack Russia against Ukraine.

The first of these involves the capture of only the southern part of eastern Ukraine that will make the occupied territories vulnerable to attack from the flank.

The second - the so-called expansion areas "LC" and "DNR" to the administrative borders of Luhansk and Donetsk regions.

The third and least likely version of American analysts, is to carry out small attacks all along the Ukrainian-Russian border to disperse the Ukrainian armed forces and reduce their concentration near the line of contact with the separatists.

At the same time, US intelligence can not claim will the Russian general on any of these scenarios, as her success is not guaranteed, and there are serious risks associated with the intervention of the West in the situation. In Russian
To end the conflict in the Donbass sanctions against Moscow must be combined with a political decision of Kiev allies to do everything necessary not only for the survival of the country, but also for the successful implementation of its large-scale political and economic reforms, despite fierce opposition from Vladimir Putin. This was the American billionaire financier George Soros wrote in his article on the website Project Syndicate, reported "Gordon" .

According to the businessman, the sanctions, despite their need to harm not only Russia but the whole of the European economy. Therefore, he believes that to ensure the prosperity of the Ukrainian economy would be beneficial both Ukraine and Europe.

"More importantly, sanctions by themselves confirm Putin's thesis that Russia could become a victim of either Western, or Anglo-Saxon conspiracy to deprive her of the legal status of a great power equal to the United States. According to the Kremlin's propaganda machine, all the economic and political difficulties caused by the hostility of the West Russia ", - summed up the American financier.

Soros said he believes the only way to refute this thesis the combination of sanctions with the effective support of Ukraine.

"If the decline in Russia will be accompanied by the prosperity of Ukraine, no propaganda can not conceal the fact that the blame for this should be the policy of Putin", - he stressed.

He also noted that Putin knows that it was he who turned the Ukraine "from the pliant ally in the implacable enemy."

"Since then, his top priority was the destabilization of the new Ukraine. On this front, it really was possible to achieve significant - albeit purely temporary - success. His haste is explained by the understanding that with oil prices well below $ 100 per barrel, Putin's regime could not last two or three years ", - said Soros. In Russian

Today, on June 22 in Donetsk, will host a concert of American pianist Valentina Lisitsa Ukrainian origin, dedicated to the Day of Memory and Grief. This was on his Facebook page the representative of so-called "ministry of defense" self-proclaimed "DNI" Vladislav Brig.

"I have a very busy tour schedule - have all painted a year or two ahead. We invite you to different places. Here in the United States and Canada, I even said, get out and play in Russia, in the Crimea, Donetsk. I follow this advice, "- said the pianist.

Fox - a native of Kiev, moved to the US in 1991 and has US citizenship. In early April this year the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (Canada) pushed her from speaking because of the position in relation to the conflict in the Donbass. In Russian
The United Stated was behind the 2014 revolution in Ukraine which ousted Pres Yanukovych. It cost America $5 billion, head of Russia Security Council Nikolai Patrushev said in his interview with Korrespondent June 21, TASS reported.

“The purpose for destabilizing Ukraine was to weaken Russia and simultaneously keep the EU on a short leash by forcing EU states to impose anti-Russian sanctions and policy against their will,” Patrushev said.

The big US mistake was to set up the ousting of Yanukovych. “If there hadn’t been a coup [Ukrainian revolution – Ed.], there wouldn’t have been the developments [annexation – Ed.] in Crimea and Donbas,” Patrushev said.

This is really getting funny. I don't think they're running out of jokes and propaganda.

Now why would the US want to force Yanukovich to decline signing the Association Agreement, then immediately sign with Putin?  Is the Kremlin that much out of touch with reality?

Also! If that was the case, Yanukovich wouldn't hide in Russia, as the Kremlin would know he was behind it and he'd be dead by now for causing so much pain on their economy. He'd ask for the US to protect him.

Of course, he's AGAIN repeating this accusation to his country so they continue to think (by force) that the west, mainly they US is the enemy. Wonder how many hundreds of thousand Russians move to live in Russia. I know a couple of very nice guys personally the live in my state. They don't want to go back.

Kremlin! Can you do better than that?

Life in Ukraine's rebel-held Donetsk [BBC idiot]

[No mention of the idiot reporter's name, but I believe he is called Tom Burridge. Somebody correct me if I am wrong, please.
Right at the start - the language issue. He has no idea. There is no language issue in Ukraine.
I phoned up to book a hotel room in Lviv. The person I spoke to couldn't understand Ukrainian!
Not a problem in Lviv. The language issue is a Kremlin invention to foster hate - which the idiotic bbc reporter has fallen for.

Shaun Walker, he is intelligent, and he knows what he is doing when he slants the news.
He works for Russiaprofile, now RIA Novosti, and posts his propaganda for the Guardian.
But this guy with the bbc - frankly stupid, naive, and out of his depth. I suspect he knows no Russian. Or very very little.
He is an embarrassment to Britiain. Hopefully somebody at the bbc can send him back to Spain, or maybe a posting in Chile?

[This does remind me of the bbc new kid on the block in Donetsk, complaining that there was no hot water, or something like that.
I'll try and find his post, not for its news value, but for what it simply is. A naive kid in a new town.
If he had been living in Ukraine for a few years he would know that this is quite normal.
Even today my electricity has gone off, and also the water pressure now is alarmingly low.
But frankly, this is normal. The complete infrastructure of Ukraine - gas pipes, water pipes, electricity system, is all so old, and any money for repairs was always diverted to corrupt officials or to build Mizygoriya for Yanukovich, or Kuchma house, or Akhmetov's stadium, or wherever.
