FRIDAY

Please scroll down to view news items added during the course of the day

News -
4 soldiers injured yesterday, but no deaths.
A large increase in the number of drone flights by Putin's terrorists. 12 yesterday.
Big problem over the law passed yesterday about foreign currency loans.
The Rada voted for banks to cover the costs at a rate of 5 uah to a dollar. (currently about 21).
Most of the banks would simply go bankrupt, I understand.
I have heard that Lutsenko has, or is thinking about resigning over this issue. That would be very sad. But understandable.


Weather -
No rain. And forecast looks like blue sky for the next week. 26 today. 30 or more next week.

Greece -
An excellent article in The Independent this morning
http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/greece-debt-crisis-what-happened-to-democracy-when-its-a-case-of-vote-yes-or-else-10362374.html
Yanis Varoufakis (this from a less economic and far more political Greek friend) is the ever-smiling economy minister, a “narcissistic idiot”, a far-too-fond-of-his-own-voice show-off student-academic – that’s why Madame of the IMF wearingly insisted on talking to “adults” in her best civil service voice a few days ago...

http://www.5.ua/ato-na-shodi/U-zoni-ATO-zafiksovano-try-obstrily-z-boku-terorystiv-za-nich-86104.html

Ambassador of Malaysia to the United Nations Ramlan bin Ibrahim said that the draft statute of the Tribunal will be distributed among the 15 members of the Security Council next week to vote was possible this month. This court under UN auspices "ensure a high level of legitimacy of judicial mechanism in case MH17, to ensure that those responsible will be held accountable", insists Ambassador of Malaysia.
Some diplomats say that Russia calls this proposal premature and insists on waiting for the results of the investigation. Other diplomats say Moscow officially denies alleged ready to consider the idea. Consent Russia on any court under UN auspices will be crucial because it has veto power over Security Council resolutions.

If the law on foreign currency loans upheld, it would lead to disaster - Ustenko (Segodnya.ua)
http://www.segodnya.ua/economics/enews/esli-zakon-o-valyutnyh-kreditah-ostavyat-v-sile-eto-privedet-k-katastrofe-ustenko-628730.html
If adopted yesterday by the Verkhovna Rada the law on the restructuring of foreign currency loans upheld, it would lead to disaster. This opinion was expressed in the comments Segodnya.ua executive director of the IMF Oleg Ustenko.
"I hope that this law will not be signed by the president. But if we assume that this law will remain in force suddenly and act, the consequences will be catastrophic. We must be sure that the collapse of the banking system, ...
In addition, the expert noted that the maintenance in force of the law will put an end to cooperation with the IMF.
"The second point. You have to understand that if the law begins to really work, you can bury the idea of ​​cooperation with the International Monetary Fund. The Fund. Who promised to work even if Ukraine will default, obviously will not work with a country that suddenly began to live just obvious populism.


[Reading a bit more...]
Recall, July 2, the Verkhovna Rada has allowed the forced conversion of foreign currency loans to citizens at the rate - UAH 5.05 per US dollar. For the corresponding bill №1558-1 third reading vote 229 deputies in the 226 minimum required.
....
"If all the loans granted to individuals resident in foreign currency to convert into hryvnia at the rate of 5.05 UAH / $ 1, the banking system will suffer losses amounting to about 100 billion Uah," - said the NBU.

[Well - I read 200 billion yesterday. But what's 100 billion between friends?
So - the people with loans will be ecstatic, but people with bank accounts will lose everything.
madness - only from the Ukrainian Rada.
Which is the biggest group of voters? Those with loans in dollars, and euros, or those with bank accounts? ]

Ukraine sends to US list of Russian generals commanding rebel troops

Post by Admin on Fri Jul 03, 2015 12:51 pm

Ukraine Security Service sent a memo to Washington, saying five Russian army generals are in command of the rebel forces in Donbas, Gazeta.ru reports July 3.

The memo, published by Bloomberg, says there are 9,000 regular Russian troops in Donbas.

The memo also points to a large number of Russian army tanks, APCs, Grad missile systems and artillery.

The Ukrainian government has repeatedly accused Moscow of moving its forces to Donbas. Pres Putin, however, refused point blank to admit their presence in Ukraine calling them Russian servicemen who went to Donbas “on their own will while on vacation.”

Post by Admin on Fri Jul 03, 2015 1:02 pm

The observers from the OSCE Office for Democratic Initiatives and Human Rights (ODIHR) can not monitor local elections in the territory of Ukraine without an invitation and appropriate mandate from the Ukrainian authorities.

ODIHR spokesman Thomas Rymer said this to an Ukrinform correspondent in Poland.

"We act in accordance with certain procedures and can observe the elections only if we are invited by the Ukrainian central government. If we receive an invitation from the Ukrainian authorities to monitor the local elections, then we will do that. We do not have the mandate to monitor the elections without the invitation of the Ukrainian authorities," Rymer said................

Gas war with Russia: Time plays for Ukraine

Post by Admin on Fri Jul 03, 2015 1:28 pm

Ukraine finally took the right direction in gas talks with Russia by ejecting the conditions of the Gazprom and suspending purchases of Russian gas. Our country will still have some gas available, while the question of filling our gas storage facilities for the winter period lies solely in the framework of relations between Moscow and Brussels, experts say.

The last round of gas talks held in Vienna in the already traditional trilateral EU-Ukraine-Russia format saw no result - a compromise has not been reached. Such an outcome of the tripartite meeting was actually expected by many. All the statements ahead of the talks by the Russian leadership - the president and the prime minister, but not by the Gazprom top managers, indicated that the dialogue would be built not on an economic but on a political basis. As before, the Kremlin continues using its energy tools to exert pressure on Ukraine, considering that this puts our country in a desperate situation and compromises us in the eyes of the European community. Russia does not want to understand that the situation has changed dramatically and now, Ukraine can meet all the Kremlin’s challenges. This is exactly what happened.

Ukraine rejected Russia’s conditions - the $ 40 discount for the third quarter down to the price of $ 247 per 1,000 cubic meters, that is, the same cost as in the second quarter. Our country insists on a discount no less than 30% of the contractual gas price and also on the resolution of all arguments before the end of the first quarter of 2016, ahead of the conclusions by the Stockholm arbitration court on the claims of both parties.

Therefore, the Naftogaz has suspended purchases of gas from the Gazprom from July 1, as the additional agreement on a so-called "winter package" has ceased to have effect on June 30. Transportation of natural gas to European consumers will be implemented in full and in accordance with the contractual terms.

"Effective solution of the gas issues with Russia should be trilateral and binding,” said the Naftogaz officials.

Russia refused to sign a trilateral protocol drafted on the principle of the "winter package", drawn up in Brussels in October 2014, which has proved being effective in ensuring the stability of Russian gas supplies throughout the 2014-2015 heating season.

But the very next day following the negotiations, on July 1, Russia decided to increase the pressure on the out-of-control Ukraine...............

They must be highly pissed that their propaganda machine in Ukraine nearly nullified. Of course, this is another example of them coming out with the most hilarious lines I've ever seen a government use. The entire globe laughs at their attempts, which in turn they've lost all legitimacy. No longer are they taken seriously.

Next line, they'll come out and say that Obama also had a night with Lewinsky at the White House. Bad thing is, his supporters will believe him.
