Peacekeepers in the Donbas: Cameron pointed to a trap for Ukraine

on Sun Sep 17, 2017 11:34 am
Peacekeepers in the Donbas: Cameron pointed to a trap for Ukraine

Former British Prime Minister David Cameron believes that the introduction of a UN peacekeeping mission to the Donbas could be a trap for Ukraine.

He reported this in an interview with LB.ua during the forum Yalta European Strategy (YES).

"I think that all these ideas should be considered, but it seems to me that there is a potential trap for Ukraine if we are not careful. The real problem in the Donbass is that there is an aggression against Ukraine with the support of Russia. And the answer to it is a cease-fire, the withdrawal of all weapons, the return of control over the eastern border of Ukraine, as well as a number of constitutional and decentralized measures that reflect the problems in the country, which should not require the introduction of peacekeeping force, "said Cameron.

He noted that the introduction of peacekeepers could make the conflict in the East of Ukraine, albeit less "hot", but also permanent and frozen. According to Cameron, UN peacekeepers can become a new border between ORDL and the rest of Ukraine.

"The best option is for Russian separatist supporters to stop firing at OSCE observers, which is a problem: this is a Russian aggression and a disregard for Ukraine's sovereignty, rather than thinking that peacekeeping might be a solution to the problem. it is very important that it does not become a force that will create some sort of new border between the "republics" and the rest of Ukraine. After that, of course, having reached the necessary arrangements, Ukraine should become the only country, "- says the ex-prime minister of Great Britain.

Irina Gerashchenko , thefirst vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, a representative of Ukraine in the Trilateral Contact Group on the settlement of the situation in the Donbas, said that the introduction of a UN peacekeeping mission on the line of collision in eastern Ukraine can not be the language, the peacekeepers must be introduced to the entire territory occupied by Russia.

Russian Ambassador to the United Nations, Vasyl Nebenzha, said that theRussian side sent a draft resolution on the deployment of peacekeepers to Donbas to the UN secretary general and chairman of the UN Security Council. In numerous statements of the Russian authorities, it was emphasized that peacekeepers should be placed only on the line of delimitation of the conflicting parties, but not on the entire occupied territory of the Donbas and preferences not on the Russian-Ukrainian border. Later, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said thatPutin had agreed to deploy peacekeepers throughout the Donbas to protect the OSCE staff.

58% of Europeans support Ukraine's accession to NATO - polls

58% of Europeans support Ukraine's accession to NATO - polls



Ukraine's accession to the North Atlantic Alliance is supported by 58% of Europeans, 48% - have voted for Ukraine's accession to the European Union.

According to the Censor.NET with reference to UNIAN , the results of sociological research Kantar Public, published on the website of the Yalta European Strategy, testify to this. During the survey, citizens from seven countries of the European Union - Germany, France, Italy, Lithuania, Great Britain, Poland and the Netherlands - were interviewed by a representative sample for each of the countries (more than 1000 people per country). "The majority of Europeans surveyed - 58% - support Ukraine's accession to NATO, while its accession to the European Union is only 48%. 12 years ago, during the first of similar polls, the picture was different: for Ukraine to become a member of the EU, was the majority - 55% - of Europeans surveyed, "the statement said.

Today, the greatest support for the idea of ​​Ukraine's accession to the EU was received in Lithuania and Poland (68% and 67% respectively), the lowest in the Netherlands (27%). Support levels in France, Germany and the UK - less than half of those polled. Sociologists have explained that those who oppose Ukraine's accession to the EU argue for a variety of reasons.

A third of respondents believe that at this stage of its development, the EU can not afford further enlargement. And the same number (31%) believe that Ukraine's adoption will provoke economic problems in the European Union. 40% of those who support Ukraine's accession consider the main argument that Ukraine is a part of Europe.

And 34% of adherents of admission emphasize that this step will help to strengthen democracy in Ukraine. With regard to Ukraine's accession to NATO, in most of the countries where the survey was conducted, the majority is in favor of accepting Ukraine as a member of the North Atlantic Alliance. "Even in France and the Netherlands, it stands at 49%, in other countries the level of support is greater, in Lithuania and Poland it reaches 72% and 76%, respectively. These two countries of the former communist camp provide the strongest support for Ukraine's accession to NATO," - the authors of the study note. Europeans consider the main argument in favor of Ukraine's integration into NATO NATO's confrontation with Russia (40% of those who support entry). In addition, 28% believe that Ukraine's accession to NATO will strengthen Europe's ability to resist Russian aggression.

Siemens refused to supply equipment to Ukraine in order not to lose an order in Russia - Koboliev

The German company Siemens has refused to supply equipment for the modernization of the gas transportation system of Ukraine, fearing to lose orders in Russia.

About this the head of the board of NJSC "Naftogaz of Ukraine" said in a speech during the annual meeting of Yalta European Strategy, the correspondent of "European Truth" reports.

"When we started work on the modernization of the gas transmission system, we had agreements on the supply of Siemens compressor systems, but subsequently they refused such cooperation because it threatened their contracts with Russia," Koboliev said.

The head of the NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine adds that the modernization of the gas transmission system requires guarantees of gas transit after 2019 when the contract with the Russian Federation expires.

"In order to invest in modernization, we need to know the prospects of the gas transmission system after 2019. It is clear that we are losing the southern direction of transit ( in connection with the construction of the" Turkish Stream "- Ed. ). Therefore, we need clarity from Nord Stream-2 ", - he concludes.

"Motherland" will not vote for medical and pension reforms - Tymoshenko

"Motherland" will not vote for medical and pension reforms - Tymoshenko



Batkivshchyna parliamentary faction will not vote for medical and pension reforms, which in the near future is going to "push" the authorities.

As Tsenzor.NE, it was announced the head of the political forces, MP Yulia Tymoshenko told the TV channel "Inter".

According to her, medical reform will deprive at least 60% of Ukrainians of the opportunity to be treated, and pension reform will deprive future pensioners of the right to retire due to requirements for 35 years of pensionable service and reduction of the coefficient of calculation of pensions.

Denisenko: Without reforms and retirement, and medical systems will just fall in a few years. Let's remind, the draft law "On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine on Pension Revenues" was adopted by the Verkhovna Rada on July 13 in the first reading. On June 8, the Verkhovna Rada adopted the bill No. 6327 on state financial guarantees for the provision of medical services and medicines, but refused to take as a basis the bill number 6329 on amending the Budget Code in terms of financing health care. Both bills are part of medical reform.

OPINION:
Seeming the elections are very near, Tymoshenko doesn't want Poroshenko to get credit for such an important issue that touches nearly everyone  in Ukraine. She'd rather have a chance to have it passed, IF she becomes the next president.
We all know her shenanigans and have, going further back than a decade, when she wanted to share powers, if she would've either been the next president or in partnership with Yanukovich, if he won.  As we can see how he thanked her, by putting her behind bars.
Lesson learned? Many haven't, yet.
