U.S. Ukraine Envoy Welcomes Russia Proposal For Peacekeepers, But Sees 'Obstacles'

on Mon 18 Sep 2017 - 12:11
U.S. Ukraine Envoy Welcomes Russia Proposal For Peacekeepers, But Sees 'Obstacles'

The U.S. special envoy for efforts to end the conflict in eastern Ukraine has called a Russian proposal to send United Nations peacekeepers to the region a "step forward" but warns there are still many "obstacles" to the plan suggested by Moscow.

The envoy, Kurt Volker, on September 16 said, "It's very interesting that Russia proposed a UN protection mission.... This is a step forward in a way bringing it up for discussion and bringing it to the [UN] Security Council."

"There's more on the table now that we can work with," he said on the sidelines of the annual Yalta European Strategy conference in Kyiv.

But he added that the mandate of any UN force must not "deepen the division" of the country.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has said that the purpose of a proposed UN-mandated peacekeeping mission in war-torn eastern Ukrainian must be to foster peace, not to cement what he called "Russia's occupation" of a chunk of his country.

Poroshenko said the mission should patrol the whole conflict zone including the border between Russia and the separatist-held parts of Ukraine's Donetsk and Luhansk regions, which Kyiv says is used to ship weapons and military personnel in from Russia.

Russia initially indicated that under its plan, the peacekeepers would operate only along the front line separating Ukrainian government forces and Russia-backed separatists. Russia also said the plan should be subject to approval by the separatists.

But Russian President Vladimir Putin on September 11 signaled his willingness to look into the idea of deploying the peacekeepers not only along the conflict line but also in other areas where monitors from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) work.

Some 600 observers from the OSCE are in eastern Ukraine, but their presence has failed to halt the fighting.

Volker reiterated that the UN force's mandate should not be limited to protecting the OSCE observers along the conflict demarcation line between zones controlled by Kyiv and those held by the pro-Russia separatists.

The current proposal, he said, "would only protect monitors, not people. It would not give access to control the Russia-Ukraine border. There's a lot of obstacles, a lot of problems with the way it was proposed."

Volker said the force should control the Ukrainian side of the border with Russia, enabling it to help prevent any movement of heavy weapons from Russia to the separatists......................

The West indicated the Kremlin was ready to be flexible in the issue of the war on the Donbas

The West indicated the Kremlin was ready to be flexible in the issue of the war on the Donbas

Russia is trying to ease the pressure from the West for its participation in the war in Ukraine. Because of this, she has to take a more flexible position.

This is stated in the report of the private American intelligence-analytical company Stratfor, which is at the disposal of "Apostrophe".

"Russia will continue to support non-controlled areas of the Donbas through the region's location on the border, but Moscow is ready to be more flexible in its approaches and levels of support for selected districts of Donetsk and Lugansk regions," the private intelligence report said.

Experts also note that the future UN General Assembly is unlikely to agree on the introduction of peacekeepers in the Donbas, but it can allow Russia to reduce the degree of confrontation with the West.

Military expert explained why Putin will not just break up the situation in the Baltics

Military expert explained why Putin will not just break up the situation in the Baltics

Russian President Vladimir Putin will not only disorganize NATO, putting pressure on the Baltic states.

This was reported by the military expert Zvi Arieli, the newspaper "Today" reports.

The Baltic States are taking active steps to protect their statehood and are protected from Russia's interference in their internal affairs.

"It seems to me that Latvia has made more efforts to push Russian-speakers into the arms of the Russian Federation. I mean, squeezing out Russian-speakers, even those who have the third, the highest category of Latvian language, for example, my mother worked in the National Library, she retirement remained virtually the only Russian-language in the library,"- said the expert.

Russia may try to leave its troops in Belarus after the end of the West-2017 exercise

Russia may try to leave its troops in Belarus after the end of the West-2017 exercise

Russia may try to leave its troops in Belarus after the end of the West-2017 exercise contrary to Lukashenko's will.

This was announced by a well-known volunteer, a military instructor, a former military officer of the Israeli Defense Forces, Zvi Ariel, Today .

"If we take more rigid scenarios than mere demonstration of force, I think it's a more realistic chance that the Russians will leave a limited contingent of their groupings in Belarus, not only to demonstrate strength and threat but also to intimidate the Belarusian authorities," the instructor said.

Lukashenka earlier advocated the creation of a Union state with Russia, supported the strengthening of ties with Russia, but later turned away from this tactic, wishing to turn Belarus into a mediating state between Russia and the West. Arieli also believes that Russia, probably, does not like such plans, so one should expect attempts to impose integration into the Belarusian leadership.

In the German elections, a system for transmitting information from hand and mouth was introduced

In the German elections, a system for transmitting information from hand and mouth was introduced

On the eve of the parliamentary elections in Germany, which will take place on September 24 and which will depend on who will become the Chancellor of Germany, unprecedented security measures have been taken to protect Russian cyberattacks, The Times reports .

In particular, the computer software of the election commission was replaced and an analog backup was introduced - the information will be transmitted in writing by hand or verbally. Helping Germany to cyber-fight against Russian hackers is provided by the US Army.

Merkel's assistant explained that the German Chancellor did not use e-mail and communicated via SMS from a separate secure phone.

"Russian intervention is obvious. It is not known if it is always directed by the Kremlin, or there are also private players ... It is not always clear where the smoke comes from, because it is part of Moscow's international policy, "Merkel said.

Earlier, 16GB of data was stolen from the German parliament, including Merkel's correspondence. This was done by a hacker group connected with the Kremlin intelligence services, which was also involved in intervening in the presidential election and in the cyberattack on French President Emanuel Macron. There are fears that stolen information may be merged with Russian propaganda platforms.

A fine for driving in a state of intoxication can raise up to 40 thousand hryvnia = $1,540

on Mon 18 Sep 2017 - 12:40
A fine for driving in a state of intoxication can raise up to 40 thousand hryvnia = $1,540

Fines for drunk driving can increase to 40 thousand hryvnia.

The bill No. 6679 was registered in the Verkhovna Rada , which suggests intensifying the fight against drunk drivers.

Draft Law No. 6679 proposes to give the police the right to carry out systematic checks of drivers on the state of alcohol intoxication.

According to statistics, over the past six months, 46 thousand protocols for driving under the influence of alcohol have been made.

According to the World Health Organization, alcohol is one of the most common causes of accidents.

The draft law states that an appropriate mark will be installed in the inspection area, and the stop / reversal of the vehicle in front of it involves a mandatory driver review of the state of alcohol intoxication.

The decision on the forthcoming inspection and its details (place, sample) is taken by the head of the patrol police.

In the spring of 2017, Kyiv City Council deputies decided to appeal to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and the Cabinet of Ministers to introduce obligatory application on the route vehicles of blocking vehicles for the start of an internal combustion engine in the presence of alcohol in the exhalation of the driver (alko-blockers).

The priest from the ATO clearly compared the Russian Orthodox Church with unrecognized DPR and LNR

on Mon 18 Sep 2017 - 12:48
The priest from the ATO clearly compared the Russian Orthodox Church with unrecognized DPR and LNR

The priest of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, Mykola Medinsky (Zalizniak), believes that the ROC is comparable to the so-called DNR and LNR.

He said this in an interview with the "Apostrophe".

"It's like an unrecognized DNR / LNR, they recognize themselves as" republics ", although they are actually terrorist groups, and the Moscow church itself recognizes itself as a church, but is actually a heretical group, albeit quite large, it's just heretics - and no more" , - said the priest.

Medinsky recalled that on June 21, 2016, on the island of Crete, the eighth Ecumenical All-Orthodox Cathedral, the Moscow church was convicted and accused of heresy of ethnophyleticism.

"The heresy of ethnophyleticism is the accusation of confusing the church with the imperial, serving the interests of the empire to the detriment of the interests of the church and the true truth of God as a whole." The charges were made, but Moscow began to defame - that they were not there, no one else was at the Cathedral, which was not authorized and so on ... General theses are some ", - he specified.

The priest stressed that the statement sounded canonically and was not subject to denial.

"But somehow it was forgotten, it was dying - and there is no tangible result of that accusation for the year. I do not know what Moscow managed to do within the framework of the world Orthodox community, but today's statement is silent, as if nothing was there, and I think that I have to talk about this - and speak loudly. Since Moscow was screaming about some sort of exceptional canonism, they continue to do so now, "he said.

According to Medinsky, the next step after accusations of heresy should be repentance. But if the Moscow church does not do this, then it will actually exclude itself from the world community of Orthodox churches.

"The accusation automatically becomes a sentence, and while they will not repent until they reject the lie in which they are accused and will not commit an act of repentance before the world community of the Orthodox churches - they will remain outside the world Orthodox community, as it is now. will remain heretics, "he concluded.

Ukraine has raised $3bn in its first international bond deal since the Russian invasion of Crimea in 2014, in what Kiev considers to be a significant step on the road back to economic normalisation.

The 15-year deal, priced at 7.375 per cent, includes exchanging $1.7bn of bonds due to mature in 2019 and 2020 for the longer dated paper.

Order books reached $8.75bn, in the latest sign of hot investor appetite for relatively high-yielding sovereign debt.

The transactions stand to ease Ukraine’s debt burden in the run-up to presidential and parliamentary elections scheduled for 2019 and boost budget resources as the country completes a second year of growth following a deep 2014-15 recession that saw GDP plunge by nearly 17 per cent.

Ukraine finance minister Oleksandr Danylyuk said the bond issue marked a significant milestone for the country and its companies, and “removed some pressure” on the budget in the near future.

“It will enable us to further improve our [credit] rating and that will not just make government finance cheaper but also for companies, which will improve businesses’ finances and [operating] conditions,” he told the FT...................

This was stated by the spokesman of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine Andriy Lysenko, reports Radio Liberty .

According to Lysenko, these units were unable to participate in exercises due to lack of fuel and equipment malfunction.

"We tried to involve Russian-occupation forces in the Donbas to these exercises, and we received intelligence that most of the columns that would have to go to focus points for parallel tasks in the" West-2017 "exercises just did not reach because of the expired fuel In one of the units from Lugansk region, which had 11 tanks, only 3 tanks could carry out tasks, all the others were defective", - told Lysenko.

-
Commander-in-Chief of the US Army in Europe Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges noted that Russian military exercises "West 2017" in Belarus could turn out to be a  "Trojan horse,"  because the Kremlin could leave imported military equipment there.

-The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine prepared a  set of measures  to react the Ukrainian army to the threats that may arise during the Russian-Belarusian exercises "West-2017".

American supplies of weapons will open up opportunities for supply from other states, - Poroshenko

American supplies of weapons will open up opportunities for supply from other states, - Poroshenko

President Petro Poroshenko believes if the United States of America will provide Ukraine with defense weapons, this decision will open the possibility of supplying weapons from other countries

This was written by the spokeswoman of the President Svyatoslav Tsyogolko in his microblog Twitter.

"The decision to provide Ukraine with defense weapons will open the same opportunities with other countries," the president said at a meeting with the Ukrainian community and the Crimean Tatar organizations in the United States.

Poroshenko also added that during the antiterrorist operation more than 10 thousand Ukrainian citizens died.

"Ukrainians are a nation of peace, but we paid over 10,000 human lives for our independence," he said.

The Head of State also thanked the Ukrainian diaspora for its contribution to the adoption of a positive decision on the imposition of sanctions against Russia.

The United States Special Representative for Ukraine, Kurt Volker, does not consider it logical to argue against the provision of high-precision American lethal weapons to Ukraine, which are heard in the information space.

Trump's adviser revealed his real attitude towards Putin

Trump's adviser revealed his real attitude towards Putin

US President Donald Trump is disappointed with the actions of the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin.

This was stated in an interview with the "Apostrophe" by a former speaker of the US House of Representatives and a freelance advisor to President Donald Trump, Republican and presidential candidate in the 2012 New York Gigric.

"I think he (Trump) believed that there was a chance that Putin would change his behavior. It seems to me that all the available evidence suggests that Putin was on a path incompatible with US policy. And that is why I think, we see that the Congress has adopted much more powerful sanctions, and we hear about plans to help Ukraine, which strengthens the positions in the Baltic countries and we are more boldly interfere in all directions, "he said.

However, he stressed that Trump hardly allowed the possibility of a large "US-Russia agreement", because it requires significant changes.

Punishment of God: the Ukrainian chaplain spoke about the inevitability of the collapse of the Russian Federation

Punishment of God: the Ukrainian chaplain spoke about the inevitability of the collapse of the Russian Federation

The priest of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, Mykola Medinsky (Zalizniak), believes that sooner or later God's wrath will fall on Russia, and it will cease to exist.

He expressed such an opinion in an interview with "Apostrophe".

"And believe me, the wrath of God will fall upon them, the Lord is slow to anger, for a long time he has been waiting for the fall of Sodom and Gomorrah, but when (I will say, jokingly) God's patience has burst - sulfur and ashes. because the criminal empire can not exist for a long time, "he says.

At the same time, Medinsky reminds that in 1988 nobody could hope for the fall of the USSR.

"But what happened is that any human power can not overcome it, but the power of God's hurdle does not happen." And this powerful empire of evil was scattered-somehow quietly, imperceptibly, it was settled and the ash broke up, "he explains.

According to the chaplain, such a fate awaits the Russian Federation, adding that it consists of a gathering of captured, annexed small peoples.

"They are not monolithic, but anything that is not monolith and is joined together with the help of artificial glue sooner or later loses its properties.

And the punishment of God will be. What she will be - let's see. But the truth of God's shame can not be. And the fact that for centuries they try to lie, to make the truth, to repaint, whiten, cuddle and lie - even in the life of the church - will not go unpunished. The recent Ecumenical All-Orthodox Council confirmed this when there was actually an anathema on the Russian Church..."- he explained.

The analyst told what Belarus is afraid of in connection with Putin's military exercises "West-2017"

During the joint Ukrainian-Russian military exercise "West-2017" in Belarus seriously fear the commission of provocations on the border with Ukraine.

This is Igar Tyshkevych, an analyst at the Ukrainian Institute for the Future, in his column on "Apostrophe".

"That is why the protection of the Ukrainian border area is normally well understood, which is why the local population was asked to report strangers, and especially people in camouflage, which was why several groups of smugglers were detained in the Grodno region," Tishkevich wrote.

The expert noted that Belarus is seriously preparing for possible provocations, maximizing border guarding.
