Crimean pensioners asked Putin to have done so, as Ukraine does

In Ukraine, unlike Russia, "children of war" have a number of benefits

Pensioners in occupied the Crimea that fall under the category of "war children" were left without benefits.

In any legal act of the Russian Federation has no "children of war." In this regard, non-governmental organizations that deal with the interests of older people are turning to the occupation authorities to do so, as in Ukraine. "It is hoped that the Legislative Assembly and Sevastopol city government will pay due attention to children of war and their social organization. And at the federal level will be considered and adopted the Law on the status of children of war. In the meantime, let even the most important issues and hopes the veterans will find an echo in the hearts of officials, executives and employees of those establishments where children have to seek the help of war"- complains chairman of the Sevastopol Regional Branch of" Children of War "Academician Alexander Suprunovych.

As you know, Ukraine "children of war" are entitled to free travel on all modes of public passenger transport; 25 percent discount payment for utility services within the average consumption rates.

In addition, the right to preemptive abandonment of the work while reducing the number or state employees; the use of annual leave at a convenient time for them; obtaining additional leave without pay for up to two weeks a year; payment of temporary disability of 100% of the average salary regardless of length of service; priority allocation of land plots for individual housing construction, horticulture and gardening.

"Children of War", who are disabled, are entitled to inpatient medical care in hospitals and war veterans in military medical hospitals.

But at least adequate breaks the law should be given to Russian veterans in full"- can not accept the reality of Russian regional head of the Sevastopol branch of" Children of War "Suprunovych., In Ukrainian / на українській мові
Yanukovych Denies Ordering Euromaidan Shootings; Kyiv Announces Treason Charge

Exiled former President Viktor Yanukovych has told a Ukrainian court via video link that he never ordered police to fire on protesters during Euromaidan demonstrations that roiled the country nearly three years ago.

The statements -- from Russia -- mark the 66-year-old Yanukovych's first testimony to a Ukrainian court over the deaths, which helped fuel the unrest that ousted his pro-Moscow administration in February 2014.

It came as Ukrainian prosecutors used a pause in the proceedings in Kyiv on November 28 to announce that they have launched formal treason charges against Yanukovych.

"From the very beginning till the very end, I stood against bloodshed," Yanukovych told the Ukrainian court. "I am not capable of giving such orders."​

The former head of state was testifying as a witness in a trial of five former Berkut riot policemen accused of carrying out the shootings.

Many Ukrainians are angry that Yanukovych isn't facing trial himself.

Yanukovych had been scheduled to testify on November 25, but those proceedings were postponed after protesters from the nationalist Right Sector group prevented the transfer to a Kyiv court of the five defendants, who have pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Right Sector activists had vowed not to block the rescheduled court session.

Ukrainian Prosecutor-General Yuriy Lutsenko told the court on November 28 that Yanukovych has been formally charged with treason.

"You are suspected of treason, complicity with representatives of Russia's authorities with the aim of changing Ukraine's borders, violating Ukraine's constitution, and unleashing an aggressive war," Lutsenko said.

Donbas conflict can only be settled with America's mediation, - Kuchma

Ukraine's second president, representative of Ukraine in the Trilateral Contact Group in Minsk Leonid Kuchma believes the conflict in the Donbas can not be resolved without the involvement of the United States.

He said it to journalists during a working visit to Zakarpattia region, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.

"If these countries show no will, if the U.S. does not step in, nothing will happen. And if we have a game of peace and friendship again, if some local problems are resolved and the Ukrainian issue is neglected, we will experience the status quo. And most importantly, we'll be quickly moving down, not up," Kuchma stated.

Earlier Kuchma said he was doubtful about the deployment of an OSCE police mission in the Donbas. , In Ukrainian / на українській мові

Not if Trump becomes president, which just recently, it sounds he might not be. But with a Trump presidency, he'll force (which won't work) the option to give-up Dombas to Putin. Also! I trust Kuchma as far as I can throw him. He's a pro-Putinist, IMO.
Yanukovych accuses Turchynov of attempt on his life

Former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych claims ex-Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov gave the order to turn back the aircraft in which he was travelling to Donetsk in February 2014.

As reported by Censor.NET, he said it during the questioning by the Sviatoshyn district court of Kyiv conducted via videoconferencing from Russian Rostov-on-Don.

"Donetsk was my second destination [after Kharkiv - ed.]. It is the second region where I planned to arrive and meet with party activists. But it turned out that when I was on my way to Donetsk, a military air traffic controller ordered the pilots to fly back to Kharkiv. No explanations followed," Yanukovych said.

"I wondered who he was to dare order the president of Ukraine. He said it was the order of Verkhovna Rada Chairman Oleksandr Turchynov. The pilot replied the president of Ukraine was on board and said that perhaps it was some mistake? The commander-in-chief was the first reason, the second one - even if he would have listened to that controller, there wasn't enough fuel to return to Kharkiv as we were already approaching Donetsk. He started to threaten the pilot, said he would send a fighter to force the plane down. I demand to investigate the attempt on the president's life," the ex-president added. , In Ukrainian / на українській мові

Who is Celebrating the Assassination of the USSR?

Last Friday the Atlantic Council hosted a curious panel in Washington, DC, dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the dissolution of the USSR: three shabby men who personally participated in a notorious, clandestine meeting in the Belavezha forest in Belarus on December 8, 1991 were seated on a stage in the capital of the principal beneficiary of that coup d’état – Boris Yeltsin’s then-Secretary of State Gennady Burbulis; the “founding president” of Ukraine Leonid Kravchuk; and the chairman of the Belarusian parliament, Stanislav Shushkevich. They were such a sad spectacle that it is much more interesting to look back at the history of their conspiracy at Viskuli, a hunting lodge for Soviet nomenklatura in Belarus 8 km off the Polish border, and the resulting direct consequences.

The document they drafted overnight and then signed was titled the Agreement on the Foundation of the Commonwealth of Independent States, which declared that the Soviet Union was to be dissolved and a new, non-supranational CIS association established. The meeting took place only one week after the Ukraine held its first presidential elections (won by Leonid Kravchuk, a member of the Politburo of the Communist Party of Ukraine, with 61.6% of the vote) as well as a referendum on independence (reportedly attracting a voter turnout of 84.2%, 90.3% of whom voted in favor)..............

Moscow strongly suspected of cultivating extremists in Hungary

Hungary’s national security committee confirmed neo-Nazi National Front movement (MNA) members were openly trained with Russian diplomats and men dressed in Russian military intelligence uniforms.

As reported by Censor.NET citing the Financial Times, 76-year-old neo-Nazi Istvan Gyorkos's was taken into custody and faces possible charges after police officers came to his house in late October in search of illegal guns and one of them was shot dead.

While Russian support for far-right groups in Europe has been widely rumoured, the recent events in Hungary have brought to light new evidence of Moscow's long-running attempts to cultivate far-right extremists.

He was known nationally for his fascist political views and, in his home town of Bony, the MNA staged regular paramilitary drills in the muddy hills behind his house and even invited townspeople to watch.

What was less well known was the far-right militia's multiple ties to Russian secret services.

Most significantly, Hungary's national security committee has since confirmed that the MNA's members openly trained with Russian diplomats and men dressed in Russian military intelligence uniforms.

Emails exchanged between MNA leaders and obtained by Hungarian media reveal a strategy to secure funding from Moscow. Mr Gyorkos also founded Russian-domain website, a forum for pro-Russian disinformation on Ukraine's war.

A person familiar with the links between Russia and the far right said the MNA - founded in 1989 and one of about a dozen extremist far-right groups in Hungary - was attracted to Russian intelligence by Moscow's anti-western, anti-globalisation ideology and the uncertain prospect of financial support.

Analysts question why Hungary's government allowed Russian agents and Hungarian militants to openly co-operate on Nato territory over several years without intervening. Almost uniquely among countries in its neighbourhood, Budapest has not expelled any Russians individuals suspected of espionage in the past six years.

The frustration is shared by some in the Hungarian security services. Two people familiar with internal tensions said Russian support to militants had been known for years but the government's strong political links with Moscow and fears of an economic backlash had prevented any response. Those links include Hungary's heavy reliance on Russian gas and the €10bn in Kremlin funding to build two Russian-designed nuclear reactors in Paks, by far the largest investment in Hungary in years.

Prime minister Viktor Orban, who enjoys cordial relations with Russian president Vladimir Putin, has been among the vocal opponents of E.U. sanctions on Russia and says co-operation with Moscow is imperative for Hungarian national interests.

Zsolt Molnar, an opposition lawmaker and chairman of Hungary's national security committee, said the killing was a "wake-up call" for Hungarian intelligence services who underestimated the lethal dangers posed by the MNA. But he played down the international significance. "The killing wasn't ideologically motivated," he said. "It's not necessarily appropriate to make this into a diplomatic issue."

Hungary's government agrees, at least for now. Peter Szijjarto, Hungary's foreign minister, said he would await a full report from authorities before making any formal diplomatic complaint. "When you want to express concerns to Russians you have to base that on strong information and strong wisdom," Mr Szijjarto said. "It's not a strong position otherwise." , In Ukrainian / на українській мові
Rally participants mock Holodomor victims outside Ukrainian Cultural Center in Moscow

The rally challenging the fact of Holodomor – the man-made famine in Ukraine (1932-1933) – was held outside the Ukrainian Cultural Center in Moscow.

As reported by Censor.NET citing, a few dozen protesters led by member of Moscow's Yakimanka district municipal authority Dmitry Zakharov said that they refused to recognize the Holodomor as genocide of the Ukrainian people.

Protesters held a banner reading: "The myth of the Holodomor is a lie and political gain from the bones." According to the rally participants "the myth of the Holodomor" was coined in order to embroil "fraternal peoples."

The protesters also mocked the memory of the Holodomor victims by placing pork parts in front of the Ukrainian Cultural Center.

"The best proof that the famine of 1932-33 was indeed the genocide of Ukrainians is contemporary Russians' reaction to it. Rather than express sympathy and remember the famine victims together with Ukraine, Russia continues mocking them. The Muscovites led by a member of Moscow's district municipal authority placed dressed pork in front of the building of Ukrainian Cultural Center today," journalist Denys Kazanskyi writes. , In Ukrainian / на українській мові
