Vice-Speaker of the Senate of Poland Adam Bielan stated that in Western Europe, many politicians who are Russian agents

This is reported by "Polish Radio".

According to him, in western politics there are many politicians who are connected with Russia.

"We are witnesses to the consistent policy of some members of the European Parliament who are angerly attacking Poland and are trying to use various mechanisms and tools to continue the attack on Poland, the power of" Justice and Justice, "he said.

As an example, Belan considers it incorrect that the Belgian authorities issued a visa to the head of the Open Dialogue Fund Lyudmila Kozlovskaya, who was deported to Ukraine from the EU on the submission of the Polish authorities. In his opinion, these are insidious actions against Poland.

The Kremlin claims that there is no compromise on the deployment of a UN peacekeeping mission in the Donbas

on Wed Sep 26, 2018 12:30 pm
The Kremlin claims that there is no compromise on the deployment of a UN peacekeeping mission in the Donbas



According to the press secretary of Putin Dmitry Peskov, a common understanding on this issue is still absent.

The Kremlin stated that it was a matter of premature compromise on the deployment of UN peacekeepers in the Donbas, as "still signs of questions are more," Cenzor.NET reports referring to "UNIAN".

The press secretary of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, told journalists about this, answering the question whether the facts are true that the negotiators are close to the deployment of the UN mission in the Donbas and which countries will be represented in this peacekeeping contingent.

"I would not say that there is some common understanding (regarding the deployment of UN peacekeepers in the Donbass, ed.). As before, there are more signs," said Peskov.

According to him, at first the peacekeeping mission to protect the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission was proposed by the Russian president, "but there are still a lot of question marks there."

On the clarifying question, whether it refers only to the line of collision or the entire territory of the ORDLO, Peskov replied: "How can a contingent be deployed without the consent of the parties?"

"First, this needs to be dealt with and many, many other modalities," - he stressed.

Recall that on the eve of the day, President Poroshenko called on the UN to bring peacekeepers to the Donbas. According to him, this could force Russia to comply conscientiously with the Minsk accords.

Poroshenko speaks at the UN on the Kremlin's aggression and peacekeepers in the Donbas

on Wed Sep 26, 2018 12:33 pm
Poroshenko speaks at the UN on the Kremlin's aggression and peacekeepers in the Donbas

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko is confident that the deployment of a peacekeeping mission in the Donbas will become a major lever for restoring Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Petro Poroshenko said this, speaking at a high-level event on the activities of the United Nations in support of peace in the framework of participation in the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly.

"It is obvious that the world has not become a safer place in the 21st century. We continue to witness war and aggression, even on the European continent. While we are debating here, the external military aggression against Ukraine continues, grossly violating the UN Charter and resolutions of the General Assembly and the Security Council of the Organization"- he said.

According to the president, according to the most cautious UN estimates, the number of victims of this conflict was about 35 thousand people, including more than 10 thousand dead and about 25 thousand wounded. The number of internally displaced persons exceeded 1.5 million.

"It may look like another piece of dry statistics that this Organization is full of. At the same time, for me, personally and for all Ukrainians, are deep scars on the heart," the President said.

In his opinion, this could force Russia to comply conscientiously with the Minsk accords. At the same time, the head of Ukraine stressed that Russia is opposed to peacekeepers.

"The reason for this, among other things, is that the Kremlin is afraid that he will be afraid that peacekeepers will see Russian military and military equipment in the entire occupied territory, and they are afraid of losing control of the Ukrainian-Russian border area that the Kremlin holds in order to keep its infiltration of its troops on the Donbas", - said Petro Poroshenko.

In addition, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko met with the United States Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volcker, during which he presented a symbolic printed copy of the State Secretary's statement Mike Pompeo of July 25, 2018, which clearly recognizes the illegality of the annexation by Russia of the Ukrainian Crimea.

"In this declaration, Secretary of State Pompeo has clearly indicated that the United States does not recognize and never recognize the Russian annexation of the Crimea," said Kurt Volker.

This was announced by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko during a working visit to the United States, the press service of the head of state said.

Meanwhile, Poroshenko thanked the leaders of the Ukrainian community in the United States for their work to recognize the 12 states at the local level as the Holodomor as a genocide of Ukrainians.

"I greatly thank each of you who has made tremendous efforts to recognize 12 of these states at the local level as a genocide of our tragedy. But we will not stop, and now we are waiting for a Congressional decision to recognize the Holodomor as genocide at the Congressional Committee." Poroshenko.

The President also particularly thanked the Ukrainian Congressional Committee of America for taking steps in this direction.

"We have to tell the truth, the truth about the Holodomor, for a terrible imprint left the horrible events of 1932-1933 in the Ukrainian soul, and that the Holodomor became synonymous with the unprecedented human tragedy," Poroshenko said.

Recall, the US state of Illinois proclaimed the 2018th anniversary of Holodomor victims.

Poroshenko casually looked into the negotiation room of the Russian delegation to the UN, Lavrov called her a toilet



President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko accidentally entered the negotiation room of the Russian delegation at the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly in New York.

This is reported by the Russian edition of RIA Novosti, reports Censor.NET.

As the newspaper notes, Poroshenko spent about 15 seconds in the room, after which he left and went to the meeting room. When the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Sergei Lavrov, said that Poroshenko had hardly gone to his office, he joked: "It's probably confused with the toilet."

In addition, it is reported that Poroshenko was seized by a journalist of the Russian propaganda channel "Russia-24", who, on the sidelines, had put Poroshenko a question regarding the proposal to deploy peacekeepers in the Donbas.

"There are no responses from the Russian media, you are the face-to-face," the President said.

Recall that on September 24-27 Poroshenko is on an official visit to New York, where he takes part in the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly.

Detained suspects in attempt on activist Mykhailyk repeatedly travelled to Russia, including recently

on Wed Sep 26, 2018 12:49 pm
Detained suspects in attempt on activist Mykhailyk repeatedly travelled to Russia, including recently



The lawmaker believes that the attack could have been masterminded by the anti-Ukrainian forces.

As reported by Censor.NET, Secretary of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Legislative Support of Law Enforcement, MP Anton Herashchenko said on air of Channel 5 that the persons detained as suspects in attempted assassination of Odesa activist Oleh Mykhailyk took numerous trips to Russia, including recently.

According to Herashchenko, the investigators have doubts as for the motives for the attack on Mykhailyk.

"I can say that these people have repeatedly traveled to the Russian Federation, including recently. The investigation is still to find out what they were doing in Russia, by whom and what exactly they were encouraged to do," Herashchenko said.

The MP says one of the theories of the investigation is the anti-Ukrainian forces’ effort to escalate the situation in the region.

"The anti-Ukrainian forces sought to have activists be killed or hurt in Odesa to subsequently accuse the authorities, the prosecutor's office, the police, the SBU of failure to take action. This theory is a major one. It’s being checked since there was no personal enmity between Mykhailyk and these three Georgian nationals," he said.

According to Herashchenko, the investigators check the detainees’ involvement with the underworld, ties with Georgian crime bosses and Georgians who temporarily occupied senior positions in the law enforcement agencies of the Odesa region.

As reported, an identified person shot at public activist, leader of the city organization of the party Syla Lyudei (Power of the People) Oleh Mykhailyk on Osipov Street in Odesa late on Sept. 22. He was taken to hospital in grave condition.

Members of the Security Service of Ukraine, who were drawn to the investigation of the assassination attempt, have interviewed Mykhailyk’s inner circle and the witnesses to the attack.

Syla Lyudei party says the Odesa local authorities are behind the attack on its member. As of the morning of Sept. 23, Mykhailyk regained consciousness. The doctors plan to extract the bullet after his condition will be stabilized. The public activist was given security.

Three suspects in the attack on activist Mykhailyk were apprehended in Odesa on Sept. 25. All three are Georgian nationals. According to the media reports, they confessed during questioning to having committed the crime.

A handgun was found at home of one of the detainees which the investigation believes could have possibly been used in attempt on Mykhailyk.

Almost got to Batsky: Putin's new photo was laughing at the network

Almost got to Batsky: Putin's new photo was laughing at the network

In the network, ridiculed a fresh photo of the meeting between the presidents of Russia and Belarus, Vladimir Putin and Alexander Lukashenko.

Thus, the political scientist Oleksiy Golobutsky compared the presidential photo made in 2017 and 2018 and noticed that the Kremlin's president had grown up.

"I saw a fresh photo of Putin with Lukashenka, where Putin suddenly almost got to Batsky, - at once did not even believe, decided that photoshop", - wrote Golobutsky in Facebook.

However, it turned out that the photo is true and even published on the Kremlin's website.

"As a photographer managed to achieve such an effect - it will remain a mystery to the FSB servant," Golobutsky joked.

The photo shows that Putin and Lukashenko have almost the same height, despite the fact that the real difference in the growth of heads of states is 20 centimeters, which is quite noticeable on earlier photos.

Note that users of the network also noticed a mistake in the photo.



As reported by the "Apostrophe", in January 2018 the network noticed that the boots, which put Putin on the Baptism, were heeled.

After the commissioning of the North Stream 2 gas pipeline, Ukraine may lose 2.5-3% of GDP

on Wed Sep 26, 2018 12:55 pm
After the commissioning of the North Stream 2 gas pipeline, Ukraine may lose 2.5-3% of GDP



The implementation of the project has been included in the main fiscal risks.

The Ministry of Finance of Ukraine has implemented Gazprom's project of the North Stream 2 gas pipeline to main fiscal risks, Cenzor.NET reports, referring to Interfax-Ukraine.

"The implementation of the North Stream 2 project will lead to losses due to a reduction in exports of services of about 2.5-3% of GDP (only direct losses)," the paper disclosed by the agency on Wednesday.

Among other external risk factors, the Finance Ministry notes the implementation of the tax reform in the United States, which may lead to a drop in financial resources from emerging markets due to the need to cover the US budget deficit, as well as in view of an increase in the Fed rate as a response to active fiscal stimulus.

Among the main risks remains the threat of intensification of the military conflict in the East of the country, which will have unpredictable consequences for the economy, the Finance Ministry notes.

The Office also increased the risk of import expansion of European consumer goods in the domestic market and the introduction of a tax on withdrawn capital, which could lead to losses in the state budget in 2019.

"The implementation of structural reforms envisaged by the program of cooperation with the International Monetary Fund is extremely important for Ukraine's macroeconomic stability and access to funding from the IMF and other international partners," the Finance Ministry emphasizes.

The British want to build a wind-solar power plant in Ukraine

on Wed Sep 26, 2018 12:57 pm
The British want to build a wind-solar power plant in Ukraine

British company Touchstone Capital Group presented a unique project of an offshore combined wind power plant of gigawatt class power

This is reported by the website of the Ministry of Energy and the Coal Industry.

Representatives of the British company said that the project power plant is unique not only for Ukraine but also for neighboring countries. After all, the greatest advantage of the power plant is the availability of its own balancing capacities, which will ensure a more even schedule of electricity generation.

"The project also involves the use of a significant (more than 30%) share of components of the future Ukrainian power plant," the ministry said.

She said that it would increase high-tech production at domestic enterprises, create new jobs, increase local communities and state budget revenues.

"It was decided in the short term to carry out calculations and modeling of possible ways of integrating new generating capacities into the united power system of Ukraine," the ministry said.

Representatives of "Ukrenergo" reminded about the current state of renewable energy in Ukraine. They reported that 70-80% of green building projects are being implemented in the southern region of Ukraine (Zaporizhzhya, Kherson, Mykolayiv and Odessa oblasts), which is energy-efficient and at the same time lacks maneuver capacity.

The head of the UOC-MP metropolitan Onufriy fell into the "Peacemaker" base as an agent of influence of the Russian Orthodox Church and an opponent of the creation of a local church

The head of the UOC-MP metropolitan Onufriy fell into the "Peacemaker" base as an agent of influence of the Russian Orthodox Church and an opponent of the creation of a local church



In addition to Onuphrius, the names of several archbishops of the UOC-MP, who refuse to support autocephaly, have been added to the database.

The head of the UOC MP, Metropolitan Onuphrius, fell into the Peacemaker's base as an agent of the influence of the Russian Orthodox Church and an opponent to the creation of a local church, reports Censor.NET with reference to the site "Peacemaker".

The founders of the base name him an agent of the influence of the Russian Orthodox Church in Ukraine. Onuphri was remembered by the refusal to meet exarchs of the Ecumenical Patriarch and the requirement that they leave the country. Also, the fact that in 2015 the Metropolitan refused to come to the Verkhovna Rada when the president pronounced the names of the heroes who showed themselves in the ATO.

In addition to Metropolitan Onuphrius, several more archbishops have fallen into the Peacemaker's base because of the categorical refusal to support autocephaly in Ukraine. These are archbishops of Novokakhovsky and Genichesk, Lviv and Galician, Kryvyi Rih and Nikopol, Kamyanets-Podilsky and Gorodotsky, as well as the heads of the Khust, Vynohradiv and Donetsk dioceses.

Earlier, the deputy of the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, Metropolitan Pavlo was in the section "Purgatory" on the Ukrainian site "The Peacemaker".

Recall that on September 3, Poroshenko said that the Ecumenical Patriarchate decided to grant states the right to establish a local church without taking into account the position of Moscow.

"We're in the home stretch," - Ukraine's president on granting autonomy to Ukrainian Orthodox Church

on Wed Sep 26, 2018 1:08 pm
"We're in the home stretch," - Ukraine's president on granting autonomy to Ukrainian Orthodox Church



President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko is confident that the decision to grant Ukraine a Tomos on the creation of a local Ukrainian Orthodox Church has entered the home stretch.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Ukrinform, he said Tuesday while meeting with the Ukrainian community in New York, USA.

"I have never specified the date of obtaining a tomos, and I will never do. I said that we, the Ukrainians, should pray and fight so that the Lord will send it to us. I strongly believe that we are already in the home stretch," Poroshenko said.

He said that the long-suffering path the Ukrainians had travelled "is precisely the evidence that our victory is close and we will liberate the Ukrainian soil."

Poroshenko said that the church should be independent of the authorities in every state. "I fully agree with this, especially when this state is foreign. It is our task to protect Ukraine from a foreign church, because we are the largest Orthodox country in Europe," he said.

According to him, there can be "only one church in Ukraine - the Ukrainian one."

The president noted that Ukrainians were waiting for this decision "not for four years, not for a century, but for three hundred years."

Hierarchs on Sept. 2 held meetings (Synaxis) of the Hierarchy of the Ecumenical Throne Constantinople (Istanbul, Turkey) to confirm that the Church of Constantinople is authorized, without the consent of other churches, to grant autonomy, or autocephaly, to a church that has requested it. This paves the way for autocephality of Ukraine's church. Further measures, such as the adoption of documents at the Synod, are expected to be taken in October.

On April 17, 2018, President Poroshenko said Ukraine was closer than ever before to creating an autocephalous united local church.

Pursuant to the instruction of Poroshenko, on April 20, Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration of Ukraine Rostyslav Pavlenko visited Istanbul and handed over to His All-Holiness, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew the Appeal of the President of Ukraine on granting the Tomos of Autocephaly to the Orthodox Church in Ukraine.

He also handed over the Verkhovna Rada’s resolution on the support for the President’s Appeal to the Ecumenical Patriarch.

Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew also received the appeals of the hierarchs of the Ukrainian Orthodox churches on granting the Tomos of Autocephaly to the Orthodox Church in Ukraine.

The Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Constantinople has already begun the procedure needed to grant autocephaly to the new Ukrainian church. The meeting of the Synod, which will address this issue, is scheduled for October.

Recently, as part of preparations for the provision of autocephaly to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, the Ecumenical Patriarchate appointed Archbishop Daniel of Pamphilon from the United States and Bishop Ilarion of Edmonton from Canada as its exarchs in Kyiv.
