US Scrutinizes Ukraine Ban on Russian Websites (while Voice of American condones propaganda)

"U.S. officials say they are closely following Ukraine’s order blocking access to a number of Russian websites in the latest round of sanctions over Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea.

The U.S. State Department has not taken an official position on the matter. However a U.S. official on background told VOA that Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko's recent decision to cut access to several popular Russian websites, such as search engine Yandex, for three years, undermines Kyiv's constitutionally enshrined right to free expression.

Despite Russian-controlled media campaigns that seek to undermine Western media — and the Ukrainian government — with fake stories and false information, "freedom of expression is a key element of every healthy democracy, and it is enshrined in the Ukrainian Constitution.”

"We call on the Ukrainian government to find a way to protect its national interests that does not undermine its constitutional principles," the official said.

Asked if there was any communication between U.S. and Ukrainian officials prior to Poroshenko's announcement of the ban, the official said although they could not comment on private diplomatic conversations regarding specific issues, "we have routinely engaged in conversations with the government of Ukraine about the importance of upholding free expression."

The listed websites were still functioning in Ukraine on Thursday, and it is unclear how and when the government plans to block them…………

Of all organizations to KNOCK Ukraine for what they’ve been having to deal with for decades, and what has helped the attempt to bring down the country.  VOA should be WELL AWARE via propaganda from the Kremlin how it’s affected the lives of every Ukrainian. To have the NERVES to approve this deadly propaganda is totally atrocious.  They don’t stand for freedom, they stand for the promotion AND PROTECTION of propaganda, same as has been practiced for decades in the US, via Russia Today, to mention just one.  They don’t say ONE word about what this propaganda’s been doing to the knowledge, education and search for the truth of not only Ukrainians, but for all. They’d rather have this propaganda destroy the brains of the people that are weak but still want to know the truth.

Sometimes I wonder, who’s really funding VOA.  It definitely shows they approve this propaganda to continue to be dispersed to millions.  Have we heard of them pushing governments to do something about it?  Have they offered a way to stop it? Education's not working. Organizations like VOA's not working. The only way to stop it is how Ukraine went into action to stop it.

Since the Romanov days, this has been a practice that’s still practiced.  We’ve seen what it’s done, not only to Ukrainians, but also to Russians. And now it’s being highlighted in the US, from the same source.  Ukrainians, which they’re well aware of, have had this propaganda FORCED on them on a daily basis. The west has done little to quash it, and the VOA knows this. But they’d rather be quiet about the weak efforts and pound their chest when someone FINALLY does something about.  This reaction has TOTALLY destroyed the VOA’s reputation.   Falsehoods and lies don’t have FREEDOM to destroy people’s minds.  FREEDOM has no room to have propaganda approved, and the VOA will deny it till the cows come home that they’re CONDONING propaganda.  That itself is a bald-faced lie and propaganda.  

Propaganda and lies kill. It’s killed many in Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova and other post Soviet countries.  ANY constitution that condones and legalizes propaganda use should be stripped of that legalization.  I’ve seen what it’s done to Ukrainians and to people close to me there that I speak to quite often or on a daily basis.  Poroshenko had no choice.  Should he just turn the other cheek and allow it to continue spreading that deadly virus within his population?  IMO, he had the guts others don’t have.  I tip my hat to him.  He’s not going to be done in by this scourge as the US has done for years.

Thinks again, who’s the VOA trying to protect, freedom or the propaganda sources?  Who’s REALLY funding them?  THEY brought this upon themselves. Should we BOYCOTT them, till they come up with a viable solution?  So far they have none.

Please share (RT) this, so others can know the difference between brain destroying propaganda and seeking the truth. Ukraine wants to seek the truth and acted on it. Please follow suit

Russian occupiers in Crimea intend to be allowed to confiscate land plots from citizens

Occupation authorities in Russia-annexed Crimea intend to amend some laws that will allow them confiscating land plots registered by Ukrainian authorities prior to Russian annexation of the peninsula.

Censor.NET reports citing Kommersant.

The newspaper is citing a letter of Crimea "leader" Sergey Aksenov to Deputy PM Dmitry Kozak and reports that the Crimean authorities propose amendments to the federal constitution bill regulating ownership of land and property registered prior to the annexation. The local "authorities" believe they are against the Russian legislation.

Kommersant reported the total land that might be confiscated is worth more than $1 billion. A Crimea official says Kozak gave an order in April 2017 to draft the amendments. Kozak and Aksenov's offices failed to comment.

Member of Chisty Bereg. Krym NGO, lawyer Alexander Talipov says the Ukrainian state agencies indeed issued thousands of registration acts for land ownership in the peninsula which acts are a violation of the Ukrainian law. But if the occupation authorities of Crimea initiate the campaign, he says, it might lead to higher tensions in the region.

Lawyer Maxim Safiulin told Kommersant that a land plot could be confiscated by the state only by court ruling or with compensation of its worth. He says even if the law is amended, the confiscations probably would not be ubiquitous, for it might lead to lots of legal actions with the ECHR.

"Given the political context and increased attention of international community to exercise of rights and freedoms of the peninsula residents, such claims are extremely undesirable," Safiulin said.
