News -
I read of over 100 attacks by the Russian forces yesterday on the Ukrainian troops. 100+ .
Update at 1400. I watched the Kanal 5 news. They said 5 Ukrainian soldiers injured. None killed in the past 24 hours.

It seems now that Putin is starting his next "game". Increasing the number of attacks on Ukraine, presumably until Europe and US react.
Which will probably be never.

The long weekend continues, but I just went out for a drive. And the roads were quite busy.
And also quite a number of police cars about - probably looking for drunks.
How the Greece crisis will affect Ukraine is hard to say. All the banks are closed now in Greece.
And when or if they will open again is hard to say.
I expect that the Greeks and Russians have some plan to destabilize the situation in Europe.
Putin gives the Greek PM a bonus of say 500 million dollars for causing chaos.
And then Putin invades further.

Weather -
Similar to yesterday. 24. But windy. Ok. Some sun, some white bubbly cloud where I am near Kiev.

EU Traders Betting on Ukraine Deal as Winter Gas at Record Low [in English]
European Union traders are betting Ukraine will reach a deal to keep natural gas supplies flowing from Russia when the nations meet EU representatives Tuesday.
Gas for delivery this winter in the U.K., Europe’s most traded market, fell to the lowest on record on the ICE Futures Europe exchange, signaling traders aren’t worried about supplies when the heating season starts in October.


Really - everything is against Putin. Even his gas war. Prices very cheap now. And the cost of extracting from Siberia has not gone down...
The oil and gas price - what keeps Putin in check. And potentially, what will destroy Russia itself, given continued suicidal help from Putin.

Medvedev said during a meeting with Gazprom head Aleksei Miller and Energy Minister Aleksandr Novak in Moscow on June 29 that the price for gas will be reduced by $40 because of falling global energy prices.

Further decisions on pricing will depend on fluctuations in global prices, Medvedev added. He said the price charged to Ukraine is "comparable" to rates paid by neighboring countries such as Poland.

Medvedev stressed that the reduction comes at the request of Kyiv. "Despite the complications in our relations, we are ready to help out our partners," Medvedev said................

Today, on June 29 in Donetsk, at the intersection of Universitetskaya and ul.Panfilova "Ural" with terrorists he collided with a car.
This eyewitnesses. According to them, the collision was head-on, reports Tsenzor.NET.
"The passenger was killed. The left side of the machine boiled", - informed the witnesses.

[Now - Shaun Walker is in Donetsk... Can we expect a report from the Russiaprofile - Guardian "journalist" on this? Just joking..
The "photo" I can't see much.. big truck blocks off the view. And closes the road also. On purpose, no doubt.
Probably the terrorist driving was high on drugs, or drunk, or most likely both. ]

[Apparently Shaun Walker, the Moscow resident Kremlin propagandist for The Guardian is in Lviv, preparing an article on how all Ukrainians and Europeans are fascists.
Presumably at the request of Guardian nutcase editor Shameus Milne, Stalin butt-kisser, pining for a Soviet world ruled by dictator Putin. ]

Kanal 5 news at 1400.
Kychurgan school - Odessa - wearing terrorist ribbons in School

I can't find this story anywhere else at the moment.
A town in Odessa oblast. About 50 km, nw from Odessa, кучурган Kychurgan.
Some videos appearing of 09 May celebrations there. At the school, no Ukrainian flag, no picture of Poroshenko.
Instead the people wearing St George ribbons, like the terrorists.
Lots of Soviet memorabilia there, old babushkas, pining for the Soviet Union.
One teacher was pro-Ukrainian. She was threatened a lot, had a heart attack.
Her neighbour, also threatened. She is pro-Ukrainian. Son fighting in the ATO zone.
Her younger child not allowed to attend school.
Many many Russian areas - villages - in Odessa area. It will take time for Sakeshvilli to sort this out.

Found this now on 24 kanal

Patriots' from Odesa take offense at story "24" channel
is the heading - but in jest - sarcasm.
The lady teacher at the start of the video holds up a poster of the front of her house  -
the villagers had painted a swastika on her fence, and called her a fascist. Putin nutcases in Odessa.
Basically the headteacher and others were trying to remove "Ukrainians" from the school.
Now - suddenly - - with the appearance of journalists - an Ukrainian flag has appeared. And even a photo of Poroshenko. Progress at least )
The headteacher is obviously not happy with the "attention" her school is getting.

ADMIN: This video/article above is troubling. This has to be looked into. This can't be allowed in Odessa, or else there will be big issues in the near future. Any movement like that has to be stopped ASAP

I noticed the face on that video (she appears at 5:15 in the video), before you start the video that looks like the woman used in the past in eastern Ukraine on propaganda. She'd show-up bandaged up and injured, which was all propaganda. I believe some of you will remember.

Director of Stratfor talked about Putin's plans for a large-scale invasion of the Ukraine (Charter'97)
In the conflict against Ukraine, Russian President Vladimir Putin seriously overestimated his chances....
So now he has to act more cautiously, refusing the outbreak of open war. ..., Russia today is a very vulnerable country, which failed for 15 years to use its oil dollars to modernize the economy....
The situation on the world markets indicates that its energy revenues will continue to fall. This means that Russia can become unstable and unpredictable. "My prediction is that the war will not be, but there will be a significant level of non-military tensions and confrontations - information, propaganda, economic, and so on.
