In one of the units of the 5th separate motorized rifle brigade (Makiyivka) , 1st artillery armored personnel carer left the post and fled to the border with the Russian Federation.

In addition, Russian occupiers continue to enjoy impunity for the civilian population. In particular, in the lane of responsibility of the 2nd separate motorized infantry brigade (Lugansk) of the 2nd AK, one of the high-ranking officials from the number of "Russian curators" was charged with an accident, which resulted in serious injuries to two civilians of the elderly. The military offender is not brought to justice.

She told her that her son had actually gone to work and helped her financially, which caused anger among many Ukrainians. At the same time, in her interview, she insisted that there were Russian troops in Ukraine, and she was an amateur to watch Kiselev and Solovyov's propaganda programs in the evenings.

In a new interview, Kanigin Ageeva told that she met her son with the whole village: "Who was two hundred rubles, who brought 300. How many pick up when our teachers get 10 thousand rubles."

At the same time, on the way to Ukraine, the mother of the Russian military said: "It was never there, and in Ukraine since 1976 there was no way people live, I can not even imagine."

A journalist says that during a train traffic in northern Ukraine, Agave was seen from the window of passengers. "You are asking: do you ride or not, you probably do not know how people live in the outback, but you do not write about it! You all need to be hot! Sometimes I want to talk to someone about it and about politics, and about the economy, I have a library at home, a book, no one is interested, nobody is interested, everything just survives, although there was a time when people started to live destitute slowly, from 2006 to 2009, and Then as a slide down".

At a meeting with his son, Agave spoke: "Putting a hand on my heart, I will say that I was expecting a little bit differently." But it turned out that they met a warm reception and a friendly attitude, trying to pay attention, settled in the hotel, that is, the attitude was very good, human. Very grateful to them".

"When I return, I will begin to tell what I have seen, and nobody in the village will believe. They will say, recaptured, stupefied, I already imagine conversations, well, well," Svetlana Ageeva added.

Western political scientist said why not everything is good for Putin on the Donbas

Western political scientist said why not everything is good for Putin on the Donbas

The situation on the Donbass is currently unstable for Russia, which complicates the integration of these regions into the Russian Federation and the implementation of the "South Ossetia scenario."

An ex-adviser to the US Department of State on national problems in the Soviet Union and the Baltic States, Paul Hobble, an American political scientist, told an interview with "Apostrophe".

"I think that Mr. Putin's decision to destroy the factories [on Donbass], to quickly grant Russian citizenship to any ethnic Ukrainians in the Donbass, which they are asked about, reflects the fact that Mr Putin can not resolve the South Ossetia decision for the Donbas, although I I guess he thought he could, "said the political scientist.

In the West, they talked about how Ukraine can challenge Putin

on Sun Jul 23, 2017 3:19 pm
In the West, they talked about how Ukraine can challenge Putin

If Ukrainians do not refuse Russian, this can be a serious challenge for Russians who dream of destroying Ukraine.

Such an opinion was expressed by an American political scientist who specializes in Russia and the post-Soviet space Paul Goble in an interview with the "Apostrophe".

"I think Ukraine should promote Ukrainian, but do not worry as some do about the availability and use of Russian. Not because of the nervousness of Russia, but rather because Ukrainians, I think, will eventually be, like many, in Ukraine. The world, to speak in several languages, and not on one, and this will strengthen their national identity, and not weaken them, "- said the American political scientist.

He is also convinced that the Ukrainian language will survive and prosper, but stressed that the language is not the only basis on which the Ukrainian nation is based.

"It is important to understand: even if it was possible - and I can not imagine it - that all Ukrainians will stop speaking Ukrainian and speak Russian, it will not make them non-Ukrainian, it will not make them Russian, which will make them Ukrainians who speak Russian. This will, of course, be a challenge for Ukrainians as they see themselves. But even more seriously, this will be for Russians like Mr Putin, "the expert concluded.

Donald Trump is the odd man out with Putin and Xi

on Sun Jul 23, 2017 3:36 pm
Donald Trump is the odd man out with Putin and Xi

China and Russia co-operate in areas posing a challenge to western interests

When Chinese president Xi Jinping landed in Moscow on the eve of the G20 summit for two days of talks with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, the world paid little or no attention. Compare that with the breathless coverage of Donald Trump’s meeting with the Russian leader days later.

Cooler heads in the Kremlin, however, recognise that the meeting between Messrs Putin and Xi was where the real action was. Beijing and Moscow are stealthily scaling up their co-operation in areas that are likely to pose challenges to western interests and policies.

The dominant view in the west is that the “bromance” between Mr Putin and Mr Xi masks an awkward relationship, in which mutual trust is conspicuously absent. But this obscures a more complex picture. The truth is that Russian and Chinese national interests tend to coincide precisely in areas where they oppose those of the west.

Take the North Korean nuclear issue. Mr Trump wants Mr Xi and Mr Putin to put more pressure on Pyongyang. But China and Russia see North Korean efforts to acquire a nuclear-capable inter-continental ballistic missile as an unwelcome yet inevitable development caused by the regime’s desire to have an insurance against possible hostile moves by the US and its allies. Mr Putin and Mr Xi share Kim Jong Un’s paranoia about the western penchant for supporting regime change in authoritarian polities................

EU ready to retaliate against US sanctions on Russia

on Sun Jul 23, 2017 4:25 pm
EU ready to retaliate against US sanctions on Russia

Brussels fears effort to punish Moscow’s election meddling will hurt energy companies

Brussels is preparing to retaliate against the US if Washington pushes ahead with far-reaching new sanctions on Russia that hit European companies.

Jean-Claude Juncker, the European Commission president, has called for an urgent review of how Brussels should respond if Europe’s energy companies or other businesses are targeted by sanctions under discussion in the US Congress.

According to a note prepared for a commission meeting on Wednesday, and seen by the Financial Times, Brussels “should stand ready to act within days” if the US measures were “adopted without EU concerns being taken into account”.

US lawmakers reached an agreement at the weekend for sweeping new sanctions to be levied against Russia as Washington seeks to punish Moscow for its reported meddling in last year’s election.

The House is expected to vote on Tuesday on the legislation, which will be imposed not just on Russia but also on Iran and North Korea. An earlier version of the bill was passed in the House by a vote of 97-2 in June. However, that legislation concerned only Moscow and Tehran, forcing legislators to postpone the bill’s passage as they negotiated the additional sanctions for Pyongyang. 

A presidential veto on the Russian sanctions bill would encounter strong resistance in Congress, with Republicans and Democrats both backing the legislation in equal measure, particularly as questions remain about interaction between top Trump aides and Moscow during last year’s election.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, announced on Sunday that the administration supported the new language of the bill and suggested that President Donald Trump would sign it.

“The administration is supportive of being tough on Russia, particularly in putting these sanctions in place,” Ms Huckabee Sanders told ABC News. “The original piece of legislation was poorly written but we were able to work with the House and Senate. And the administration is happy with the ability to do that and make those changes that were necessary. And we support where the legislation is now.”.....................
