The scheme is changing: Putin made a loud confession in the occupied Donbas

Russian President Vladimir Putin is not going to officially recognize the so-called DPR and LNR part of Russia.

This is reported by a blogger under the nickname Necro Mancer on Twitter.

The published interview states that the entry of the territory of the occupied Donbass into Russia in the Kremlin is now extremely unprofitable, since it "will cause serious financial costs for the Russian budget."

Specifies that for Moscow, the next variant of the developments would be acceptable: during the Minsk agreements to transfer the territory of the occupied Donbas to the balance of official Kiev, while maintaining the possibility of military-political influence.

"Of course, this goes against the existing agreements, which in reality and so far are not rigorously executed by the Ukrainian side. Of course, such steps lead only to further infiltration of the tension in the zone of collision," Peskov said.

The representative of the Kremlin reminded that there is an agreement on the removal of heavy weapons from the line of forces collision in the Donbas.

"Russia is not a party to the conflict and will no longer be in a position to respond to the possible use of weapons by Kiev in the Donbass, but as a guarantor of the Minsk agreements, I can express my deepest condolences on the fact that the Ukrainian side is continuing its steps leading to further tensions "- said Peskov.

As reported by "Apostrophe", the network showed a spectacular video of a serious battle near Donetsk , in the zone of military conflict in the Donbass, where the afternoon of Thursday, October 11, for the Armed Forces of Ukraine passed without losses.

Everyone is ready to support the UN mission to stabilize the situation in the Donbass. Only Russia blocks the deployment of peacekeepers - Volker



Special Representative of the United States Department of State for Ukraine Kurt Volcker said that he continues to maintain correspondence with the assistant to the President of Russia Vladislav Surkov about the settlement on the Donbas.

As Censor.NET informs, in an interview with the TV channel "Present Time," he stressed that he hopes to reach a joint decision with the Kremlin on the issue of deploying UN-designated peacekeepers under the control of militants.

"In the last few weeks, we corresponded with him on the issue of placement of peacekeepers in the Donbas. In my opinion, this is a very viable idea and the most practical way to facilitate the implementation of the Minsk Agreements," Volker said.

The Special Representative explained that in the current situation, "Russia complains" that Ukraine does not give special status to the territories that control the Moscow-backed militants, does not carry out an amnesty for those who participated in hostilities and does not arrange local elections in the territories.

"But Ukraine can not do this until Russia occupies the territory, and while there is no security and freedom of movement, peacekeepers can come, create security in the region, provide freedom of movement and peace, and people will be able to return to their lives. to comply with the Minsk Agreements, "explained Volker.

According to Volcker, the idea of ​​placing a UN peacekeeping mission in the Donbas is blocking Russia.

"We offered this idea, Ukraine supports it, it is supported by France and Germany, the EU, NATO, Canada, the United Kingdom - all are ready to support the UN mission to stabilize the situation in the Donbas, only Russia blocks the deployment of peacekeepers," he said.

"Russia to protect interests of Orthodox faithful," - Kremlin vows to intervene in Ukraine’s local church creation

on Fri Oct 12, 2018 2:07 pm
"Russia to protect interests of Orthodox faithful," - Kremlin vows to intervene in Ukraine’s local church creation



The Russian Federation will certainly protect the interests of the Orthodox faithful in the same manner as Russia protects the interests of Russians and Russian speakers globally.

This was said by Dmitry Peskov, the spokesperson for the Russian president, commenting on the possibility of Moscow’s meddling in Ukraine’s church issue, Censor.NET reports referring to RIA Novosti media outlet.

"If the developments show signs of illegal actions, then – as Putin (Russian President Vladimir Putin - Ed.) repeatedly said – Russia will certainly protect the interests of the Orthodox faithful in the same manner as Russia protects the interests of Russian speakers. This is an absolutely reasonable and absolutely clear position," Peskov said commenting on fake news concocted by the Kremlin-sponsored media that Ukraine-based Moscow Patriarchate churches allegedly face attacks and hostile take-overs of their assets.

He said, however, that Russia will respond to the said actions "exclusively through political and diplomatic means."

As reported, 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.

Subsequently, on Sept. 7, Ecumenical Patriarchate has appointed two Exarchs in Kyiv as part of preparations for granting autocephaly to Ukraine's Orthodox church. "Within the framework of the preparations for the granting of autocephaly to the Orthodox Church in Ukraine, the Ecumenical Patriarchate has appointed as its Exarchs in Kyiv His Excellency Archbishop Daniel of Pamphilon from the United States, and His Grace Bishop Hilarion of Edmonton from Canada, both of whom are serving the Ukrainian Orthodox faithful in their respective countries under the Ecumenical Patriarchate," the Ecumenical Patriarchate said in an announcement.

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.

On Oct.11, 2018, Ecumenical Patriarchate has decided to proceed to the granting of Autocephaly to the Church of Ukraine.

Hungary Protests Ukrainian Military Moves, 'Death List' Of Dual Citizens

Hungary Protests Ukrainian Military Moves, 'Death List' Of Dual Citizens

A diplomatic spat between Hungary and Ukraine has escalated, with Budapest summoning Kyiv's ambassador to protest what it called a "death list" targeting ethnic Hungarians in Ukraine as well as military movements on their common border.

Ukraine's "anti-Hungarian policy has moved to a new level," Hungarian Foreign Ministry official Levente Magyar told reporters in Budapest on October 10. He accused Kyiv of inciting tension between the two neighbors.

Hungary, which is a European Union and NATO member, has cited a growing number of grievances against Kyiv in reportedly attempting to block Ukraine's efforts toward closer cooperation with the Western bloc and military alliance.

"We call on our EU and NATO allies...to thoroughly examine what is going on in Ukraine," Magyar said.

Magyar claimed that an estimated 100,000 ethnic Hungarians living in Ukraine's western Transcarpathia region that borders Hungary have been "frightened" by such developments as the recent emergence of a list of some 300 names on the website of the Ukrainian nationalist group Myrotvorets.

He said the list includes Hungarian officials -- including Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto -- as well as ethnic Hungarians in Transcarpathia alleged to have taken up dual citizenship, which is illegal in Ukraine.

"It is a death list, because it names Ukraine's supposed enemies," Magyar said. "It has happened before that people who appeared on such a list became murder victims."

Magyar also expressed "concern" that the website of the Ukrainian parliament has posted a citizens petition that calls for the "collective deportation" of dual citizens.

He also said that Ukraine had moved military units to the Hungarian border region, and was building barracks there.

Responding to reporters' questions, Magyar said that Ukrainian Ambassador Lyubov Nepop denied Kyiv's involvement in either the list or the petition, and said the troop movements were to protect local citizens.

Officials in Kyiv did not immediately respond to Budapest's allegations.....................
