In "Fahterland" told who heads the corruption in Ukraine

The pressure became government policy, said MP Vlasenko

People's deputy VO " Fatherland "  Sergey Vlasenko live Shuster LIVE said that corruption in Ukraine is headed by the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman and.

" Ukraine has never been a fight against corruption! It is headed by President Poroshenko and Groisman. Now pressure is carried out against anyone who says even a word of truth, thinks otherwise and protects human rights. It is not only Saakashvili, it said. I remember the pressure on Savik Shuster. The pressure became government policy, and Poroshenko himself clearly knows that decision and against whom it takes , "- said the deputy. In Ukrainian / на українській мові

Another sovietized Tymoshenko plant, doing her dirty work for her.

He should be asked how many MPs, Mayors, Governors and others have been charged by Lutsenko and company, who Poroshenko put in place, just to do that job? ANYONE who's stuck to the news daily will see the horrendous list of those that have been charged.

If Poroshenko was corrupt, the Ukraine's economic ratings wouldn't have been increased by the likes of Fitch and World Bank. Of course MANY don't even know what that's all about. If corruption (which there's still lots to do, due to how embedded in Ukraine it is) was so bad, why has there been in increase in foreign investments. And investors were very concerned when Yanukovich was in office. Many big companies left and those same are returning. The GDP's increased. Pensions and wages are going to be increased and already have recently. Now again it'll go up. If the economy was so bad, that wouldn't happen.

Yes! Corruption is still bad in Ukraine, and not Lyashko, Tymoshenko, Symnonenko, Boyko or anyone else wouldn't be able to eliminate completely in a short time.

All I see is, election campaigning already starting with daily propaganda from the likes (mainly now) from within Tymoshenko's team of crooks. NOBODY can deny that she's as dirty as they come, with an obsession that is sickening and will bring back Ukraine and Ukrainians to the Yanukovich and late years of Yushchenko, who she tried to bring down, for her own power greed.

I'd hate to say it, and it disturbs me very much, because I love Ukrainians, including my wife who's Ukrainian. But the old soviet ways of thinking still runs deep in Ukraine. Seems propaganda is like tasty food to a vast majority. They swallow it whole. No attempt to research on it, no attempt to become educated on the country's economic issues. Just go with what they're told. AND! If you confront them and give them facts, you're ignored. I've experienced it with my young extended family from Ukraine. It's difficult for them to listen and consider facts. It's very hard for them to accept that they've been misinformed, because it's their friends that tell them the crap. So they find it more comfortable to continue in denial.

It's going to take a long-long time for this to change. I do have a lot of hope for them and the country, but it's going to be a hard road to travel through. They all need our prayers, so they can ALL one day soon see the light that is in front of them for them to reach out and grab. IMO, Ukrainians are much capable of loving one another, as compared to Americans. And I'm an American. They're very loving and their families are the most important to them. They work much harder than in the US. They don't subordinate their authority as done in the US. They can be a very successful society and one for the rest of the globe to admire. But they MUST fight hard to fight that soviet atmosphere that still exists. They need the assistance of the rest of the western democratic country, to make it happen. I thank Canada and the US mainly, along with some of their neighboring countries for helping them recently, to keep it on its feet. But don't fall for the likes of some of the OLD Ukrainian politicians and want to continue to have that mafia attitude and corruption ongoing in Ukraine. It's the only way for them to survive. But hook or by crook. That's not dignity.

Who's the 'Putin agent ": Lyashko or Tymoshenko?

Lyashko pours images and accusations against former ally

One of the major scandals of the week, the outgoing charge was triggered by a loud leader of the Radical Party, Oleg Lyashko against Yulia Tymoshenko ( "Fatherland"). Lidertsi opposition attributed the attempt to destabilize the situation in Ukraine.

As you know, on 15 November Lyashko tore statement from the parliamentary rostrum his party members, the eldest MP Yuriy Shukhevych, saying it was "manipulation" because the word 83-year-old People's representatives handed "Fatherland". Lyashko asked Speaker Andrew Parubiya of a break in the meeting. During a break on the sidelines of the parliament a fight involving Lyashko and "radical" Igor Mosiychuk on one side and Alexander Bilyk - on the other. Lyashko argued that Bilyk -  seems assistant Medvedchuk and the Council is  "to destabilize the situation." The very same Tymoshenko  said that Bilyk "never worked   even close to Medvedchuk. Moreover Bilyk is now executive director of the newly created public association "Ukrainian patriots", headed by Yuriy Shukhevych himself ... ".

After this Lyashko appealed to the President to strip Tymoshenko Ukrainian citizenship through its "anti-state" activities and caused it to public debate . The "radicals" completely blocked the access of journalists to Shukhevych, which could present his version of events. Recall, MP moves with third party because it has poor eyesight.


Ляшко сипле образами і звинуваченнями на адресу колишньої соратниці

Один з головних скандалів тижня, що минає, був спровокований гучним звинуваченням лідера Радикальної партії Олег Ляшка на адресу Юлії Тимошенко («Батьківщина»). Лідерці опозиції приписали спробу дестабілізації ситуації в Україні.

Як відомо,15 листопада Ляшко зірвав виступ з парламентської трибуни свого однопартійця, найстаршого депутата Ради Юрія Шухевича, заявивши, що це «маніпуляція», оскільки слово 83-річному нардепу передала «Батьківщина». Ляшко попросив у спікера Андрія Парубія про перерву в засіданні. Під час перерви в кулуарах парламенту сталася бійка за участю Ляшка і «радикала» Ігоря Мосійчука з одного боку та Олександра Білика – з іншого. Ляшко стверджував, що Білик - начебто помічник Медведчука і знаходиться в Раді «для дестабілізації ситуації». Сама ж Тимошенко заявила, що Білик «ніколи в житті не працював  навіть близько біля Медведчука. До того ж нині Білик працює виконавчим директором новоствореного громадського об’єднання «Українські патріоти», яке очолює... сам Юрій Шухевич».

Після цього Ляшко звернувся до президента з вимогою позбавити Тимошенко українського громадянства через її «антидержавну» діяльність та викликав її на публічні дебати. При цьому «радикали» повністю заблокували доступ журналістів до самого Шухевича, який би міг викласти свою версію подій. Нагадаємо, депутат пересувається за допомогою сторонніх, оскільки має поганий зір.

Russia infiltrates 30,000 persons clad in military uniforms into Donbas – OSCE

OSCE special monitoring mission says about 30,000 persons wearing military uniforms has entered Donbas, RBK-Ukrayina quotes the US representative in the OSCE, Daniel Baer, as saying Nov. 18.

The mission has been monitoring traffic only at two cross border checkpoints, Gukove and Donetsk, (both Rostov oblast, Russia), Baer says. It would be difficult to imagine the true dimensions of the military traffic at other checkpoints uncontrolled by Ukraine where there are no OSCE observers, he said.

Despite all the obstacles put up by Russia, the mission could register the destabilizing role of Moscow in Eastern Ukraine, he said.

Baer also said Russia had ignored the OSCE request for admission for its monitors to leave the territory of the checkpoints and patrol their perimeter.

 “We all know that when Russia is trying to pass the servicemen off as civilians it is an attempt to cover the truth: they enter Ukraine to fight,” Baer said.

The persons in question receive weapons on arriving in the rebel-held territory, he said.

The OSCE mission also registered 27 incidents of the crossing from Ukraine into Russia of trucks carrying the bodies of the Russians killed in Ukraine.

 “The trucks are the Kremlin’s shame. Not only do they send the Russian sons to die in a senseless war, but they disgrace their memory denying they were killed in Donbas,” Daniel Baer said.
Ukrainian PM Praises Economy, Pledges to Raise Pensions, Wages

In an exclusive interview with RFE/RL’s Ukrainian Service on November 16, Prime Minister Volodymyr Hroysman said Ukraine's economy has now grown for three consecutive quarters.

Hroysman also noted that the Fitch ratings agency had raised Ukraine's rating on November 12, meaning that the country is no longer "in a pre-default situation."

World oil prices, Russian production both predicted to fall over the next 25 years

Just how disastrous Vladimir Putin’s decision to rely on the export of oil rather than to modernize and diversify the Russian economy is going to become ever more obvious in the coming years given that world prices of oil may fall to as low as ten US dollars a barrel and Russia’s production of oil to fall by almost 30 percent over the next 25 years.

Those predictions are offered by the new annual report of the International Energy Agency, and they point to a disaster for Russia even if oil prices might occasionally spike upward from where they are now unless Moscow takes step to end Russia’s dependence on oil exports.

The reason the IEA says oil prices will fall is rooted in lower production costs brought about by the fracking revolution. Demand in fact will grow by 12.5 percent by 2040 to 103.5 million barrels a day, Nezavisimaya Gazeta journalist Olga Solovyeva says in reporting on the findings of the agency.

“For Russia, the IAE predictions are hard to call optimistic. Russian oil production is slated to fall by 30 percent to 8.5 million barrels a day from its current rate of 10.9 million.”..............

Ilya Bogdanov, a former Russian citizen and ex-FSB officer who defected to Ukraine and fought against pro-Russian forces in Donbas, has been freed by the Ukrainian security service after the FSB attempted to kidnap him and traffic across the Ukrainian-Russian border, according to an UNIAN correspondent.
