News -
Two items caught my eye this morning.
One - the bbc joke "interview" with murderer Yanukovich, and the second - an interview with an intelligent man in Newsweek magazine.
Yanukovich - what a load of rubbish.
"I didn't give any order to shoot".. "Yes I regret it". " The ostriches were just there"... "Crimea... what happened has happened"..
Imagine the bbc interviewing Adolf Hitler.
"Mr Hitler, what about the 5 million jews gassed to death... " - what happened has happened.
"What about 20 million killed in the war"... "yes I regret it".
The bbc basically making him seem human. Perhaps they could start interviewing child serial killers in prison?
Newsweek - excellent story about Eliot Higgins who has exposed much of Russia's lies over its shooting down of MH17.

Weather -
super. 25 today. Blue sky, but some cloud building now about 11.00.
Similar all week. But I hope it keeps raining... unlikely..

Representatives of the captured militants SE "Luganskugol" appealed to the representatives of the OSCE mission in Lugansk to help get money from the state budget of Ukraine for the payment of staff salaries in June-August 2014. It is about the amount of 208.4 million. UAH. On this, referring to the chairman of Luhansk territorial trade union organization of workers of the coal industry Bichёva Alexander, said the separatist agency "Luganskinformtsentr."

According to him, employees of the company did not receive a salary from June to December 2014.

"They are rightly outraged that miners cash and government subsidy for six months are not paid to them as wages. Failure to these funds from the state budget of Ukraine in June-July 2014 made it impossible to pay salaries, "- said Flail.

Earlier it was reported that coal smuggling from the occupied territory of Lugansk region are going to carry through the newly opened militants customs post "Sverdlovsk". In addition, we recall, the party of coal from the "LC" have been seen in the area of ​​Novoshakhtinsk (Rostov region). It was also reported that one of the most "popular" Russian checkpoint through which transports coal Lugansk is "Matveyev Kurgan." In Ukrainian

If they're smuggling out coal which doesn't belong to them, then pay the salaries with that. They took control of those areas, so they're responsible for whatever occurred in the area.

My comment: I find it hilarious to even entertain that request. Russia started this in the area. If the little dwarf wants to rule it, then let him pay for what he caused. I can't believe these stupid jackasses had the gull to even ask for money. Show the caliber of brain matter they have. And that's what Putin wants to run the area?
Ukraine's Foreign Ministry said that Minsk agreements will be made only after the return of the territories under the control of Kiev Donbass. This was reported at the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry.

"Only a full recovery over control of Ukraine Ukrainian-Russian border, the stabilization of the situation in the Donbass, and return it to the Ukrainian legal field would mean the implementation of the agreements Minsk. And this is a general point of view of Ukraine, the European Union and the whole civilized world, "- said in a statement.

The Foreign Ministry also noted that the entire civilized world, particularly the EU urges the Russian Federation to abide by the obligations under the Minsk accords to end the supply of arms, mercenaries and ammunition, thus contributing to the observance of the ceasefire and the influence of controlled fighters. Only the full implementation of all the commitments of the Russian Federation can become the basis for revision of the sanctions regime.

"The Ukrainian side takes the position that in case of further escalation of the situation or continued neglect of Moscow international law and its obligations, the international community should increase sanctions and other pressure on the Russian Federation", - said in a commentary. In Ukrainian
Netherlands to discuss with partners the beginning of the international version of the UN-backed tribunal to bring to justice those responsible for the disaster Boeing MD-17.

Reuters reported, citing its own sources in the Netherlands who are familiar with the details of the case.

"The UN tribunal is the best option. We hope that this will give the best chance of the cooperation of all countries concerned, "- quoted by its own power among officials.

The publication notes that two sources in the Netherlands, who wished to remain anonymous, confirmed that the complexity of the legal and political side of things led to the fact that the attention focused on the establishment of an international court with the support of the UN Security Council will be completed only an international investigation and called the perpetrators.

According to sources, Reuters, while also considering other options, but it is an international rather than a national court, is rated as the most potentially productive. The publication notes that the beginning of an international process would require UN Security Council resolutions, and, accordingly, Russia will have to give consent or veto. In the case of a veto, Russia will be seen as a major obstacle in bringing to justice those responsible for the disaster.

In addition, one of the diplomatic sources Reuters reported that in the case of Russia's refusal to support the beginning of the Tribunal, the Netherlands may insist on toughening sanctions. At the same time the Dutch presidency of the EU in the first half of 2016 will provide more leverage to influence.

Sources also reported that the Dutch side would like to see the court in the Netherlands, although the details of what legislation will be applied in the process and how the accused will be detained and brought to trial even have worked through. In Ukrainian

If somebody tries it, there will be an immediate response, which is stipulated by the Constitution, [which] is clearly stated and approved by representatives of local government, regional councils, the Venice Commission and experienced lawyers. That is very important, as this is the way a consensus in the country should be achieved," Poroshenko said.

"I am confident the decentralization is our future," Poroshenko said, adding that the experience of Poland made this clear........ In Ukrainian
In his recent interview to BBC, ex-President Viktor Yanukovych clearly publicized Kremlin’s agenda for Ukraine, well-known political analyst Taras Berezovets writes in Facebook June 23.

“All ironical comments and jokes about Yanukovych’s interview should be stopped. First, he is a state criminal on whose orders about a hundred of patriots were killed on Maidan and who directly helped Russia to annex Crimea and launch the war in Donbas.

Second, the reanimation of Yanukovych indicates Putin’s new scenario for Ukraine. In his interview, Yanukovych clearly mouthed Kremlin’s plans regarding Ukraine – ‘Donbas is Ukrainian territory – take it back. Forget about Crimea.’”

Putin will try to implement this scenario at the next Minsk meeting, Taras Berezovets said.

"The Kremlin is beginning to realize that it cannot force Ukraine to take separatists. At one time in Moscow believed that they would help States Norman format-France and Germany, so much so that the Minsk agreements that were largely successful Kremlin formulations almost on the financial participation of these countries in these content areas.
But now Ukraine every day harder refuses to finance the occupied territories until elections are held by Ukrainian legislation. And in this situation, the Kremlin has no good moves.

Top rebel leader accuses Jews of masterminding Ukrainian revolution
Ukraine’s Jews are responsible for the Euromaidan revolution that ousted their country’s pro-Russian president last year, a senior rebel leader told an audience at a Russian university last week.
This is not the first time a rebel leader has said such a thing, with Alexander Zakharchenko, president of the breakaway Donetsk People’s Republic, stating in a press conference in February that the government in Kiev is run by “miserable Jews.”
During a lecture last week titled “Contemporary Ukraine as Fascist State of a New Type” at the Nekrasov State University of Kostroma in Russia, Igor Plotnitsky, who heads the Luhansk People’s Republic....
“What is important, I think, is that there is no condemnation from Russia after the anti-Semitic statements of the leaders of pro-Russian regimes,” he said.
The Russian Embassy in Tel Aviv declined to comment, explaining that Plotnitsky “is not a Russian official and has no relation to the Russian government.”

[So now, the "Jews" are fascists? What is Putin's new angle on this? ]

Meet Eliot Higgins, Putin’s MH17 Nemesis [in English]
“We must be causing the Russian media to pull their hair out,” Higgins says, “considering the amount of attention they’re paying to us.”...
"The Russian propaganda technique is to flood the Web with huge amounts of misinformation in an effort to undermine genuine facts,” says Vitaliy Naida, a senior official at Ukraine’s state security service. “The aim is to constantly raise new questions and make absolute truth seem unattainable."...
For the first time, Higgins and his team say they’re going to put names and faces behind the tragedy.....
we can say, ‘Look: Here’s the evidence. Here are the photos. Here are the videos. This is what Russia is up to.’”
