News -
Russians fired 53 times yesterday. No word on Ukrainian casualties as of yet.
UPDATE AT 1300. Sadly one dead, 10 injured.
Gubarov - one of Putin's puppets in Donetsk has been quite critical of Russia - saying there is no money, and no road forward.
And also that the old "Party of Regions" betrayers are returning to power in the area. He does not seem happy.
Greece - will the PM go back to Putin grovelling, and ask for money? Quite possibly.
Perhaps in return for blocking the EU agreement with Ukraine?
The Greeks are scumballs - nothing good ever comes out of Greece. Well - not for the past 2000 years.

Weather -
Strangely overcast this morning, but quite a warm night. A chance of rain tonight - it is needed.
The weekend looking like getting quite warm. 33 or more. Toasty.

As explained by the "Observer" from an expert "Ukruglerestrukturizatsii" water out "Yunkom" continue to pump. But at the moment it is rapidly increasing influx due to the migration of groundwater between all mines in the region. Water "Yunkom" comes from the mines stopped Yenakiyevo, Gorlovka, Dzerzhinsk. In case of flooding, "Yunkom" mine water will turn into radioactive and join Bulavinku River, which flows into the Sea of ​​Azov.

"According to the data on the volume of water production, we estimate that in a year or two of groundwater" Yunkom "will be able to rise to the level of the river Bulavinki. Bulavinka its waters near the" Yunkom "and washes shlakootstoynik" Yenakiyevo Metallurgical Plant. "To begin with groundwater not even have to come to the surface - quite up to the horizon of 300 meters (300 m. deep into the earth - Ed) - and then there will razmyvnye soils. slurry is formed, in which the building is not reversed, literally "will develop." But the main thing - underground radioactive capsule is destroyed aggressive mine water. The amount of water gets into the raised Bulavinku and make it navigable. And this river is already radioactive water will wash away toxic slag mountain YMP and go further - to the Sea of ​​Azov, "- said the" Observer "expert.

Drones Find Russian Base Inside Ukraine [in English]
Dnipro-1, one of Ukraine’s many pro-government volunteer regiments, today released a video compiling drone footage of a Russian military camp just south of the village of Sontsevo in the Donetsk region....
What’s significant about where this Russian FOB is located is that it’s sandwiched between (Ukrainian-held Volnovakha) and (separatist-held) Telmanovo, and would therefore play a lead role in any forthcoming Russian offensive on Mariupol,...
The rapid development of this base suggests the time for such an attack may be drawing nearer....

Russia’s highest court OKs early parliamentary vote in 2016 [in English; Wash Post]
It would likely result in a lower public interest in the campaign, as many Russians go on vacation in the summer, and benefit the ruling party which tends to garner more votes when the turnout is low.

Of course, he can fix the election and get whatever result he likes. But that can lead to a revolution...]

Russia Only Has Itself to Blame for Lost Influence in Post-Soviet Sphere [in English]
Pavel Gubarev, a prominent figure in eastern Ukraine’s self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, lamented in an interview Tuesday with nationalist website Russian People’s Line that in contrast with their American counterparts, Russian organizations tend to veer toward corruption.
“Look at how Americans work: they find ideological people, give them money and resources — everything they need to continue doing what they believe in. Because this is important for the U.S. and that’s how it’s been for the past 23 years,” he said. “And all our alleged Russian organizations simply syphon off funds.”

[Not a bad article. Very little of quality now in the English language.
While Moscow Kremlin scumball Shaun Walker in is Lviv finding a "Pravi sektor" fascist story to please Putin and Shameus Milne at Russiaprofile and The Guardian, some people are writing intelligent stories. Amazingly, an article by scumball Walker called "Ukraine for Ukrainians" was found to be "disturbing" by American journalist Noah Sneider. Clearly coming under Walker's bad influence - just like Roland Oliphant did at the Telegraph.
I've had a couple of very pleasant holidays in Lviv, and plan to go back there again shortly.
A lovely city with lovely people. You find far far far far worse in North Carolina. Perhaps somebody should send Noah Sneider there first!
Walker - he has no idea. Or rather, he has, but he doesn't write about it. Kremlin payroll still?? ]

Here is the bbc article I referred to above

Ukraine suspends Russian gas purchases [in English]
A statement from Naftogaz said: "Since the additional agreement between Naftogaz and Gazprom is expiring on 30 June, and the terms of further Russian gas deliveries to Ukraine were not agreed at today's trilateral talks in Vienna, Naftogaz is suspending purchases from the Russian company."
Ukraine consumes about 50bn cubic metres (bcm) of gas per year, producing about 20bcm but importing the rest.
On average, Kiev experiences four months a year when the average temperature is below 0C (32F).

[This last sentence is absolute BS from the bbc. It probably refers to statistics from 30 years' ago. The last couple of winters have been extremely mild.
With temperatures well above average. The "average" - and the statistics need recalculating, perhaps using data from the past ten years.
I assume Ru and Ukr are arguing over price. ]

According separatist, now "Russia again comes on the same rake, trying to influence Ukraine through elite through the oligarchs."

"See how Americans are working: they are ideological people, give them the money and the means - only that they continue to do what they believe
