A BellingCat research project announced an article on the availability of US-made weapons in the Azov regiment.

A spokeswoman for the BellingCat project on Eastern Europe and Eurasia, Arique Toler, wrote on Twitter.

"A lot of hype was raised around the official consent of the US government to sell Javelin Ukraine anti-tank missile systems, but the Azov battalion already has a lethal weapon in the United States on the front line in the Donbass. Watch the new release of our #MinskMonitor," Toller said.



He also noted that the article could be talking about grenade launchers of American production.

Earlier, the "Apostrophe" reported that the Senate and House of Representatives commissions agreed to allocate $ 350 million for Ukraine's military assistance in the 2018 fiscal year.

The government named Russia who's guilty of exacerbating relations between Ukraine and Poland

on Tue Jan 09, 2018 10:53 am
The government named Russia who's guilty of exacerbating relations between Ukraine and Poland



Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Pavel Rosenko said that nobody other than Russia was involved in the destruction of Ukrainian monuments in Poland and the plundering of Polish monuments in Ukraine

He said this on the air of Channel 5, the Government portal said.

"We are well aware of who wants to take advantage of this exacerbation, we are well aware that no one other than Russia is involved in the destruction of Ukrainian monuments in Poland and the plundering of Polish monuments in Ukraine," he said.

The Vice Premier is convinced that during the bilateral dialogue between the governments of Ukraine and Poland, it will be possible to solve all controversial issues and to find an understanding between the two states.

According to Rosenko, the meeting between the presidents of Ukraine and Poland, held at the end of last year, has shown a desire to reach agreement and resolve disputes between the two states.

"The meeting between the two presidents is a powerful signal, including hot heads, that no one will succeed in breaking up the good-neighborly relations between Poland and Ukraine. We will do everything to prevent the third party from rejecting the relations of the two states a century ago," the Vice- the prime minister

He also noted that the process of finding an understanding should be as depoliticized as possible.

"We need to depoliticize this process, we must separate internal Polish and internal Ukrainian processes from the topic of bilateral relations, especially with regard to the uneasy issues of history. We must give an opportunity to discuss historical issues first and foremost historians, we must not twist the society by slogans or critiques of each other," - he stressed.

Rozenko stresses that this should be an absolutely equitable joint dialogue - "not a monologue, not an ultimatum or a threat from any sides, namely a dialogue between the two parties."

-Against the background of rigorous statements by representatives of the Polish authorities to Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko initiated an extraordinary meeting of the Consultative Committee of the Presidents of Ukraine and Poland.

-The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine stated that the Ukrainian authorities have no politicians with anti-Polish sentiment.

-On November 17, deputy head of the Presidential Administration's Administration, Kostyantyn Yeliseyev, met with the head of the office of the Polish President, Krzysztof Szczarski, in Krakow, on which the parties agreed to lift the moratorium on exhumation of mass graves.

-At the same time, on November 18, Polish border guards did not admit to the country the responsible secretary of the State Interagency Commission for the commemoration of the participants in the anti-terrorist operation, the victims of the war and political repressions Svyatoslav Sheremet. In an incident with Sheremetya, Ambassador of Poland in Kyiv, Jan Pecko, was summoned to the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry.

-The head of the Institute of National Remembrance (IPN) of Poland, Yaroslav Sharek, said that Warsaw could not tell Kyiv which heroes to choose, but that the -UPA's crimes against the Poles in Volhynia could not remain silent either.

-On December 13, the presidents of Ukraine and Poland agreed to reduce the black list of people who did not come to both countries , and also discussed the restoration of Ukrainian monuments.

-In Poland, they said that the visit of their president to Kiev somewhat reassured the tension in the bilateral Polish-Ukrainian relations and unblocked the channels of communication.

In Ukraine, 60 new schools have appeared since 2014

on Tue Jan 09, 2018 10:55 am
In Ukraine, 60 new schools have appeared since 2014

In the period from 2014 to 2017, the number of built educational institutions has sharply increased due to decentralization

This is announced by the press center of the "Decentralization" initiative.

In the period from 2014 to 2017, 60 new general educational institutions were built in Ukraine. Most of them, namely 25, were built last year.

The significant growth of the construction of schools in the Ministry of Regional Development is explained by the increase of state financial support for the development of territorial communities and the development of their infrastructure, as well as the growth of revenues to local budgets.

It is known that in 2014 the government directed only half a billion dollars in social and economic development. In 2017, this figure has increased to 15 billion hryvnia.

"The situation has radically changed since 2015 - the year when the Government has implemented the first stage of financial decentralization. Since then, local budgets and public financial support for the development of local communities and infrastructure development has been increasing," said the First Deputy Minister for Regional Development, Ichaslav Negoda.

Yatsenyuk was told what a unique opportunity is given by Canada's presidency at the G7

on Tue Jan 09, 2018 11:12 am
Yatsenyuk was told what a unique opportunity is given by Canada's presidency at the G7



There is a chance to sharpen the attention of the leading countries of the world to Russia's aggression against Ukraine

Under the auspices of Canada, which has been chairing the Seven Group since the beginning of the year, a new international platform should be launched to discuss the situation in Russia seized in the Crimea and in the occupied part of the Donbas. About this in his article in the newspaper "Day" said Daniel Lubkivsky, diplomatic adviser to the Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk in the years 2015-2016, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine (2014).

He recalled that on January 1, Canada began an annual presidency in one of the most influential world unions - the Group of Seven (G7), the informal club of the seven most developed democracies and economies in the world.

Canada's chairmanship at the G7, he stressed, is a unique opportunity to sharpen global attention to Russia's aggression against Ukraine: "The Government of Canada has every opportunity to become an influential initiator of new efforts to restore peace and security in our region, to protect international law on the examples of Ukraine and other states that were subjected to an attempt by Russia, and the defense of human rights in the occupied Ukrainian territories", - stressed Danylo Lubkivsky.

According to him, under the auspices of Canada, a new international platform should be set up to discuss the state of observance of human rights in Russia seized in Crimea and in the occupied part of the Donbas: "large-scale persecution; political and national repression; harassment of the Crimean Tatars, Ukrainians and other national environments; suppression of freedom of speech, choice and religion".

"The essence of such a plan is to bring the world's attention to unexplained and often not well-known world human suffering as a result of Russia's aggressive policy and its attempt against a civilized world order," the article reads.

Danylo Lubkivskyi noted that such a form of work would not be contrary to existing negotiating formats or means of consolidated international pressure on Russia. On the contrary, such an approach "will allow to overcome the artificial delimitation of the occupation of Crimea and Donbass." The nature of occupation is one. The essence of human rights violations is one. The aggressor is the same. And sooner or later the aggressor must be held accountable for his crimes, "he stressed.

"In 2018, we need a strong mutual political will to really move towards peace and security," added Daniel Lubkivsky.

The governor of the Lavra, Bishop Pavlo: "Crimea has never been Ukrainian". VIDEO

on Tue Jan 09, 2018 4:42 pm
The governor of the Lavra, Bishop Pavlo: "Crimea has never been Ukrainian". VIDEO

Bishop Pavlo, the deputy of the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, said that Crimea, which is now occupied by Russia, has allegedly never been Ukrainian.

According to Cenzor.NET, on January 8, during a conversation with the participants of the campaign against "the work of the Laurels on the FSB of Russia," the video was posted by the leader of the nationalist organization C14, the ATO fighter Eugene Karas on his  Facebook page.

"Crimea has never been Ukrainian," said the governor of the Lavra.

He also called the Crimea's accession to Ukraine in 1954 "illegal". "It was illegitimately done in his time for Stalin, you know the history that the Crimea has never been Ukrainian," said Bishop Pavlo, addressing the participant of the action.

After that, the participants of the action clarified that this happened during the days of Nikita Khrushchev (former secretary-general of the Central Committee of the CPSU, ed.), But Bishop Pavel continued to state that "everything was done for Stalin." Answering the question of who Ukraine is fighting on Donbas, Bishop Pavel said that he was "not in war." "It's not known to anyone and anyone," he added.


Pavel's statements from the 11 minute video

The representative of the UOC-MP reminded that the church helps to free Ukrainian hostages. At the same time, he clarified that there is no "Moscow Patriarchate" in Ukraine. "There is the Russian Orthodox Church, not the Moscow Patriarchate," - said the governor of the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra.

As reported earlier, the reason for the picketing of the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra on January 8 was the fact that activists of the "C14" earlier became in Zaporozhye, the priest of the UOC-Moscow Patriarchate, to refuse to sing a two-year-old child because he was baptized in the UOC-KP Patriarchate, after which the incident at the funeral began to bring toys under the churches of the Moscow Patriarchate, and similar events were held under the walls of the Kiev Pechersk Lavra.

In Washington, in honor of Nemtsov called a quarter near the Russian embassy Boris Nemtsov Square



The Washington City Council voted to award the name of Boris Nemtsov to the Quarter near the Russian Embassy.

Russian journalist Volodymyr Kara-Murza-Jr. has reported about this in Facebook.

"The Washington City Council unanimously voted for the accelerated procedure for adopting a bill on Boris Nemtsov Square in front of the Russian embassy," he wrote.

According to Kara Murzii Jr., the renaming will take effect before February 27.

Earlier it was reported that the square near the Russian embassy in Kiev will be named in honor of Boris Nemtsov .

Boris Nemtsov was shot dead in Moscow on February 27, 2015.

Five people were charged with the murder case, including a former military staff member of the Chechen battalion "North" Zaur Dadaev.

In June 2017, the jury trial in Moscow found the main suspect in the murder of Nemtsov Dadayev guilty. In July, the accused Dadaeva and four other suspects were sentenced to 20 years in prison. All defendants in the case of the murder of Boris Nemtsov do not recognize their guilt.

Although on the video records of the first interrogations Dadaeva and Gubasheva the defendants found guilty and claim that the motives behind the murder were the political views of the Russian opposition, as well as allegations that allegedly offend the feelings of Muslim believers.

In Poland, a factory will be checked, where workers from Ukraine were forced to wear a blue-yellow uniform

Enterprise Lindab will check possible discrimination against employees from Ukraine.

The newspaper Wyborca writes about it, referring to the statement of the representative of the Polish office of the Commissioner for Human Rights Leslava Novatski.

According to him, the ombudsman will appeal to the Labor Inspection to carry out inspections at the Lindab plant near Warsaw, as the requirements for Ukrainians "may have a discriminatory character".

Recall that at a factory near Warsaw, where a subsidiary of the international Lindab company is located, Ukrainian workers work in a different color than Poles.

The "Never Again" Association, which opposes the manifestations of any kind of discrimination, condemned such actions at the enterprise.

A Trump Relationship Report with Russia: It became known about the killings of witnesses

A Trump Relationship Report with Russia: It became known about the killings of witnesses

Glenn Simpson, a co-founder of Fusion GPS, said that "someone has already been killed" after the publication of a dossier on contacts with Russia from the president of the United States, Donald Trump.

The lawyer said this during a private hearing involving his client at the Senate Legal Committee, according to The Hill.

These hearings were held last year, but some of the content of the conversation became known now.

In particular, Simpson was asked if Fusion GPS made any steps to assess the reliability of the sources used by a former employee of the British intelligence service Christopher Stilius.

Recall that Christopher Styles is the author of a trilogue of people from Trump's surroundings with Russia during the US election campaign. The document also states that Russia intervened in the course of the American election to help Trump with the election.

"Yes, but I'm not going to disclose information sources," answered Simpson.

His lawyer Joshua Levy said that Simpson "wants to be very careful to protect his sources."

"Someone has already been killed as a result of the publication of this dossier, and nobody should be harmed by this true work," Levy said.
