French ex-president names "frozen conflict" as Putin’s ultimate goal in Ukraine

French ex-president names "frozen conflict" as Putin’s ultimate goal in Ukraine



President Vladimir Putin of Russia is most keen to turn the war in Ukraine into a "frozen conflict" in order to control this territory.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Radio Svoboda, former French President Francois Hollande said speaking at a conference at the University of Mons, Belgium.

"Vladimir Putin seeks that all the conflicts he has waged become ‘frozen’. In Georgia, Moldova, and now in Ukraine as well. His goal is to prevent the Ukrainian authorities from controlling their territory, up to the border with Russia, including Crimea," the former French leader said.

He also expressed confidence that "Ukraine itself is partly responsible" for "the long drawn-out fight against corruption in the country and failure to implement the Minsk agreements."

Asked by the students whether the talks in the Normandy format were fruitful, Hollande answered in the affirmative.

"I spent many hours holding telephone talks with Merkel, Putin and Poroshenko. I don’t know exactly what result these consultations produced but I think they yielded at least one thing: there was a dialogue. And when there is a conversation, the negotiating parties stop killing each another. This was and still remains the outcome of the talks in the Normandy format," the politician said.

He explained that "when Russian-backed separatists continued their offensive in the Donbas, there was an urgent need to secure cease-fire and subsequently withdraw heavy and light weapons."

"Back then in Minsk there was a battle between Vladimir Putin, Petro Poroshenko on the one hand and me and Angela Merkel who came there to achieve a cease-fire. Putin wanted armistice to take effect as late as possible while Poroshenko [wanted it] with all possible dispatch. The hot war was finally over then but that did not mean that the military personnel were no longer killed after Minsk," Hollande said.

In early October, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko conferred one of the highest state honors - the Order of Freedom – upon Hollande "for his outstanding personal contribution in support of Ukraine’s sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence, as well as in countering further aggression in the Donbas and de-occupation of Crimea."

French ex-president and incumbent German chancellor were also awarded for their joint initiative to start talks in the Normandy format which paved the way for diplomatic effort to create peace in the Donbas.

Russia uses Sea of Azov to supply weapons to its Donbas-based forces, Ukraine's envoy to UN says

on Wed Oct 31, 2018 10:50 am
Russia uses Sea of Azov to supply weapons to its Donbas-based forces, Ukraine's envoy to UN says



Besides hampering the maritime commerce in the Sea of Azov, the Russian Federation is also using this channel to stealthily deliver weapons to its own forces stationed in the Donbas.

Ukraine's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Volodymyr Yelchenko said at an open session of the UN Security Council on Ukraine in New York on Tuesday, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrinform.

"Russia also uses the Sea of Azov as an additional channel to supply its forces in the Donbas with weapons from the occupied territory of Crimea," he said.

According to him, Russia has not given up the idea of creating a land corridor to Crimea.

"Furthermore, the threat of a maritime assault from the Azov direction in case of a large-scale military confrontation remains a source of security destabilization in the Donetsk region," Yelchenko said.

Ukraine's representative emphasized that the Azov Sea has turned into another theater of Russia's belligerent actions against Ukraine.

"In the last six months, the Russian Federation stopped in an abusive manner over 200 vessels bound for Ukrainian ports of Mariupol and Berdiansk. As confirmed by the OSCE SMM, these interruptions to commercial shipping caused economic and trade disruptions resulting in commercial losses for the ports employing thousands of people," the Ukrainian diplomat said.

Such actions by Russia "are inconsistent with its obligations under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea and breach the navigational rights of Ukraine and of the flag States of the stopped vessels." At the same time, he noted, vessels bound for Russian ports in the Sea of Azov have not been subjected to similarly disruptive stoppages.

In addition, Yelchenko mentioned the obstacles to international navigation created by the illegally constructed bridge through the Kerch Strait. The bridge is only 35 meters high, and only vessels with an air draft of less than 33 meters and a length of less than 160 meters may safely pass under it.

"As a result, Panamax vessels and many Handymax vessels are now prevented from transiting the Kerch Strait. This has had a major impact on traffic to Ukraine's ports," he said.

Russia is preparing to place nuclear weapons in the occupied Crimea, - Yelchenko

on Wed Oct 31, 2018 10:53 am
Russia is preparing to place nuclear weapons in the occupied Crimea, - Yelchenko



The aggressor country did not renounce the idea of ​​getting an underground corridor to the Crimea, says the post of Ukraine's ambassador to the UN.

The Russian Federation continues to prepare military infrastructure for the deployment of nuclear weapons in the occupied Crimea.

This was announced by the Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the UN Volodymyr Yelchenko at a meeting of the UN Security Council, reports Censor.NET with reference to UNIAN.

The diplomat said that Russia uses the Sea of ​​Azov as an additional channel for supplying arms to its forces in the Donbass from the occupied territory of the Crimea.

"According to our information, Russia has not abandoned the idea of ​​getting a land corridor to the Crimea, and, moreover, the threat of a sea attack from the direction of the Azov Sea in case of large-scale military confrontation remains a source of security destabilization in the Donetsk region," Yelchenko emphasized.

"Active militarization in the occupied Crimea is in full swing. Russia has more than doubled its military forces on the peninsula and continues to prepare the Crimean military infrastructure for the deployment of nuclear weapons, including the re-equipment of Soviet nuclear ammunition storage facilities," the ambassador said.

As it became known earlier, the Russian Federation relocated 108,000 Russians to the occupied Crimea to change the demographic composition of the population.

No new US missiles in Europe but more and more new Russian ones, - NATO chief on INF Treaty. VIDEO

NATO Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg, expressed concern about the growing number of Russian missiles deployed in Europe which are capable of carrying nuclear warheads.

"When it comes to INF Treaty (the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty – Ed.), we have to remember that the problem is the deployment of new Russian missiles," Stoltenberg said in Trondheim, Norway, on Oct. 30 while visiting Exercise Trident Juncture – NATO’s largest exercise since the end of the Cold War, Censor.NET reports citing the Voice of America.

"There are no new U.S. missiles in Europe. But there are more and more Russian missiles – missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads. And those missiles put the INF Treaty in jeopardy. And all NATO allies expressed their concern about new Russian missiles," NATO chief said.


The arms-control treaty was signed in 1987 by Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev.

The Head of State also thanked the international partners and the leadership of the UN Secretariat "for solidarity with Ukraine and the call to strengthen humanitarian assistance to mitigate the consequences of Russian devastating aggression."

Russian President Vladimir Putin has threatened "severe consequences" for those who are trying to "break ties of humanitarian ties" established by the Russian Orthodox Church all over the world. Censor.NET notifies about it with a link to "Browser".



During a speech at the Sixth World Congress of Russian Compatriots in Moscow, the Kremlin leader said that the ROC, as well as other denominations, are doing a lot to strengthen the cultural and humanitarian ties of Russia with compatriots around the world, and now "many are trying to break these bundles".

"Unfortunately, now many people are trying to break them in various ways, break these bundles, stretch their country apartments," he said.

Putin stressed that "politicking in such a sensitive area has always turned into severe consequences."

"First of all, for those who do it," the head of the Russian Federation threatened.

In addition, the Synod's letter of 1686 was canceled, after which the Kyiv Metropolitanate fell under the jurisdiction of Moscow, the canonical status of the head of the UOC of Kyiv Patriarchate Filaret and the head of the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church Macarius was restored.

In the occupied Crimea, children are forced to join the "youth" - human rights activists

on Wed Oct 31, 2018 11:18 am
In the occupied Crimea, children are forced to join the "youth" - human rights activists



According to international law, such acts are a military crime.

Human rights activists recorded new facts of the militarization of children in occupied Sevastopol, reports Censor.NET with reference to UNIAN.

According to the Crimean human rights group, in Sevastopol, 1,800 juvenile local residents took part in the "Russian movement of schoolchildren" and "youth".

Human rights activists say that Russia, carrying out propaganda in the Crimea in its army, condemns a war crime.

"Propaganda of the war and prizes to the army-invader, in accordance with international humanitarian law, is a war crime. The upbringing of children with a positive attitude towards the army, military and paramilitary groups, the rejection of children and youth for military service in the army of the occupying power, the creation of a positive image of war lead to a violation of the fundamental right enshrined in an international document, which the Russian Federation ratified on August 23, 1993, "said Iryna Sidova, an expert from the Crimean human rights group.

According to her, during the events of the so-called "military-patriotic education" children and young people in Crimea are taught to use firearms and to wear military uniforms, acquaintance of teenagers with various types of weapons, teach hand-to-hand combat and basic military science.

"One of the main values ​​that children put in their minds in such lessons is the victory in the war with the help of armed conflict, with the help of such upbringing in the minds of children, the legalization of the occupation of Crimea and the actions of paramilitarial formations takes place." Thus, the inhabitants of the Ukrainian peninsula are taught to feel citizens of Russia and prepare them to protect the interests of the invading state, in particular, with the help of service in its armed forces or services in paramilitary formations, which is a gross violation of the norms of international humanity E. Voronova rights "- said Sedov.

According to the "government" of Sevastopol, today in the city there are 65 "youth units" with a total of about 7 thousand people.

Budapest does not plan to seize Transcarpathia, - Siiyarto

on Wed Oct 31, 2018 11:21 am
Budapest does not plan to seize Transcarpathia, - Siiyarto



The Hungarian Foreign Minister says his country is interested in a strong and successful Ukraine.

The Hungarian Foreign Minister, Peter Syyjarto, said that Budapest has no intention of changing borders or capturing certain regions of Transcarpathia, nor is it going to seek the status of autonomy of the region. He stated this in an interview with the Polish newspaper Gazeta Prawna, reports Censor. NET.

Asked the journalist about whether Budapest will resolve to somehow change the borders to protect the Hungarian minority against the backdrop of a crisis in relations with Ukraine, Siiyarto replied "no".

"I always reject attempts to accuse us of revisionism ... It's stupid and false innuendo," said Siiyarto. "I will repeat once again: we are not revisionists, I must definitely abandon such accusations," the minister continued.

The head of the Hungarian ministry assured that in the interests of Budapest, "good neighborly relations and a strong democratic Ukraine, which respects its international obligations and considers the national minorities its own resources." "We are helping Ukraine to become a strong state," he said.

Regarding the possible provocations of Russia in Transcarpathia, which the Ukrainian authorities say, Siiyarto said that Kyiv's duty is to "prevent a situation where someone may interfere in internal affairs."

Recall Hungary's relations with Ukraine have complicated the background of the language issue. So, on September 5, the Verkhovna Rada adopted a law on education, which begins the reform of education in Ukraine. The document, which came into force on September 28, 2017, states among other things that the language of the educational process in educational institutions is the state language.

Subsequently, the Romanian Foreign Ministry expressed concern about the law on education adopted by the Verkhovna Rada, and Hungary stated that it would cease to support Ukraine on the international scene.

Relations between Ukraine and Hungary deteriorated further after the scandal with the distribution of Hungarian passports in Transcarpathia. On September 28, it became known that the prosecutor's office instituted a case of state betrayal on the issue of Hungarian passports.

On October 10, Hungary summoned the ambassador of Ukraine, Lyubov Nepop, to the wreath through the publication of the Peacebuilder website about more than 300 Transcarpathian officials who have Ukrainian and Hungarian citizenship.

On October 4, Ukraine declared the Consul of Hungary to the Non-Grenadier Beach Person. He must leave the territory of Ukraine.

Russia forms a new military unit near the border with Ukraine in the city of Unecha, - InformNapalm

on Wed Oct 31, 2018 11:46 am
Russia forms a new military unit near the border with Ukraine in the city of Unecha, - InformNapalm

Ukrainian volunteers-investigators based on open source intelligence discovered and explored the formation of a new military unit of the RF Army near the borders of Ukraine and the Republic of Belarus.

According to Cenzor.NET, a new investigation by the international intelligence community, InformNapalm, contains facts and conclusions that will be of benefit to military analysts and everyone who is interested in secretive actions of the Russian Federation in the military sphere.

"From 2014, from the beginning of the active phase of armed aggression, the Russian Federation continues to increase its military presence along all land and sea borders of Ukraine.

As a result, over the past 4 years, Russia has carried out:

- Formation and placement of three new motorized rifle divisions, units of which are located directly on the state border of Ukraine:

144 mSD 20 A - city of Yelnya / Smolensk;
3 msd 20 A - m. Valuiki;
150 mSD 8 A - Novocherkassk city.

- Formation of 1 Tank Army of the ZVO , as well as motorized infantry and tank divisions in the Western and Southern military districts of the Russian Federation ( 2 mSD, 4 td, 42 mSD, etc.), which, during exercises, complete the transfer and conduct of combat operations along the borders of Ukraine, in particular on the territory of the Republic of Belarus;

- Relocation of the headquarters of the 20 Army ZVO from Mulino back to Voronezh (from Voronezh to Mulino headquarters moved in 2010);

- Formation of the 12th command of the Reserve of the South. (Novocherkassk) at the beginning of the Center of Territorial Forces (in 2015), and later on the 8th Army of the Southwest (in 2017);

At this time, 8 A Pod. (And before this 12 KRES and DTV) carries out direct management of 1 and 2 AK of the so-called "republics" in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine, and the corps themselves are an official and inalienable part of the troops of the South and the Armed Forces forces of the Russian Federation

- Strengthening of military presence in the Black and Azov seas , obstruction of international maritime freight traffic through the Kerch Strait and in the waters of the Sea of ​​Azov;

- Conduct large complex military exercises, during which the global interaction between divisions and units of various types of troops is worked out;

- Large-scale reform and rearmament of troops , primarily units of the VAT, MTS and ATS.

Together with the hybrid aggression of Russia, as well as in connection with constant attempts to destabilize the domestic political situation and the situation in society as a whole, all of the above-mentioned actions are a direct threat to the territorial integrity and independence of Ukraine ", - reads the material.

"It has recently become known that they are planning to place another military unit of the RF Armed Forces in the Bryansk region (bordered by Chernihiv and Sumy regions of Ukraine, as well as with the Gomel and Mogilev regions of the Republic of Belarus).

In general, many military units are deployed on the territory of the Bryansk region, of which, as of summer 2018, newly formed units are already located:

- 488 ms 144 msd - m. Klintsy;

- ms 144 msd - p. Zaymisch (the outskirts of the city of Klintsy) - it seems that only the regiment is formed, but in fact there is only a field camp with 488 mps technique; (at the same time, in the new general plan of the city of Klintsa, the area around this camp is designated as a "zone of restricted territories");

- 856 units 144 msd - Pochep / Pochep-2 (on the territory of the former 24 regiments of the accident and protection consequences liquidation)

- 144 msd - m. Pochep.

- odeb 144 msd - m. Pochep

Plans for the new military unit in Unecha.

Unecha - district center of the Bryansk region. The population is 23 971 people (2017) . To the border with the Republic of Belarus - 79 km (in the direction to Gomel). To the border with Ukraine - 58 km (in the direction of Semenivka). Through the city there passes the Gomel and Mogilev railway branches, and alongside (within 5 km) the Gomel line A-240. And the railroad canvas in the direction of Gomel, and the route connect in a straight line Bryansk, Pochep, Unecha, Klintsy and Gomel.



The deployment of a new military unit in Uneche became known as a result of a visit to the city of Deputy Commander of the Western Military District on Logistics Lt. Gen. Andriy Buligy on October 12.

Local media wrote: "The city came as Deputy Governor Sergey Sergeev and military commissar Andrei Solomentsev Bryansk region . They discussed the possibility of placing a military unit in Unecha. The delegation toured the area and the building of the former railway hospital where plans to place military unit..."

In fact, the preparatory work is already taking place not only in the premises of the former Nose Hospital in the city of Unecha, but also in the adjoining territory, which means that, with a high probability, the decision to deploy the military unit has already been finally approved. This is evidenced by a plan of development placed on the hospital's premises. Let's dwell on this in more detail", - note the authors of the publication.

According to official statements of state structures and mass media of the Bryansk region, in particular the official site of the Government of the Bryansk region, a delegation headed by Lieutenant-General Bulig A.M. inspected the former railway hospital in the city of Unecha. Despite the fact that it has not been in operation for about 10 years, the place where it is located is easy to install using open source information.

At this address ( 52.853181, 32.666725 ) is a complex of several buildings, of which the main building is the former Nuclear Hospital (two- and three-story buildings). Nearby is the Central District Hospital in the city of Unecha, which operates.



This building, according to a historical certificate and a letter from residents to the President of the Russian Federation from 2008, even before the Second World War, functioned as Node Hospital then at the station "Unecha" . After the war it was restored, it was designed for 250 beds. In the two thousand there was the maternity ward of the city of Unecha, but it completely stopped working after the hospital was handed over in 2008 to the local Russian Central District Hospital.

De facto work on the alienation of Nazi Hospital property expired in 2011, which cost the region's budget 10 million rubles.

In 2012, the current governor at that time said that the overhaul would be completed in 2013 and that during 2012-2013 it will allocate 61.5 million rubles . Given the cost of purchasing premises at the Russian Railways OJSC and the cost of work for 2011, the total amount spent on major repairs of the premises is roughly at least 77 million rubles.

In the article of the Donetsk Internet resource on January 30, 2015, an interview with the chief physician of the CRC Vladimirovym AM was published . From the interview it becomes clear that the contractor completed the repairs only in December 2014, that is, one year later than the scheduled term. It is also said that in the CRR, as of 2015, there are only 115 beds left, and for them there is quite enough central building of the district hospital.

"So, after the repair was completed in December 2014, the building of the former Nuclear Hospital was not used and probably there was no such kind of heating, therefore it is likely that for almost 4 years the results of the repairs could be partially destroyed, and the premises may have need to be repaired,"- says the material.

"As a result of the analysis of the pictures (based on the results of the delegation's visit to Unece) available on the network, it can be concluded that some of the photos were actually made on the territory of the former railway hospital. Moreover, it is in this area that information stands are located on the organizational-staff structure of the new unit and, possibly, with site mapping schemes and other information.



The fact that the part will be located here is evidenced by the video of the local YouTube channel "First U.Net Channel". The cameraman removes the territory and the buildings of the former railway hospital on the camera, at the beginning of the video we see photos in the frame with the members of the delegation - so they were here. Also, in the video clearly hear that the interior is under repair.

Russia uses the UN Security Council to conduct a disinformation campaign against Ukraine, - Yelchenko

Russia uses the UN Security Council to conduct a disinformation campaign against Ukraine, - Yelchenko



The main task of the delegation of the Russian Federation to the UN Security Council is to use this authoritative international platform for conducting a disinformation campaign.

As Censor.NET informs with reference to Ukrinform, such an opinion was expressed by a permanent representative of Ukraine to the UN Volodymyr Yelchenko during an open session of the UN Security Council on Tuesday.

"It was clear from the Russian statement that the Russian delegation was primarily concerned with using the site of the Council of Europe to conduct a disinformation campaign against Ukraine and to accuse the Government of Ukraine of everything that is happening in the occupied territories of Donetsk and Lugansk regions," Yelchenko said.

According to him, this is due to "desperate attempts to avoid responsibility for the enemy, well-documented Russia's actions against Ukraine: military aggression, occupation and attempted illegal annexation of Ukrainian territory."

"This is the behavior of a quick-tempered and unrepentant criminal who is determined to put up with a system of justice for a ridiculous scene," the Ukrainian ambassador said.

"I want to express my deep disappointment at the position of the Russian side, obsessed with sabotaging all the sincere efforts to find a peaceful solution to the conflict and return the peace of the war-torn regions of Ukraine," Yelchenko summed up.

As it was reported, an open meeting of the UN Security Council on the situation in the occupied regions of eastern Ukraine took place in New York on Tuesday.

Poland needs more and more migrant workers from Ukraine: the country's human hunger, - DW

Poland needs more and more migrant workers from Ukraine: the country's human hunger, - DW



In an attempt to attract and retain workers from Ukraine, the Poles offer bonuses and salary increases.

Poland feels a famine and needs more and more workers from Ukraine. This writes DW, reports Censor.NET.

Thus, by 2020, Poland will lose half a million able-bodied population, such data from the Ministry of Investment and Development of Poland. Two reasons: the demographic crisis and the fact that more Poles go to work in neighboring Germany.

In the struggle for workers from Ukraine, Polish entrepreneurs offer our workers more and more favorable working conditions. Employers promise rewards to those who bring new employees to them.

Poles also regularly raise wages for Ukrainians, says DW. 1/3 of our workers are currently earning in Poland up to 3 thousand zlotys (22 thousand UAH) per month, another third - up to 3.5 thousand (25.5 thousand UAH). And only 15 percent earn over 3.5 thousand zlotys.

Polish employers have also started to improve the working conditions of Ukrainians. Already, besides the salary, they offer various bonuses. Almost 38 percent of Polish entrepreneurs have accepted the documents, 31 percent - provide Ukrainians with housing, 29 percent - with medical insurance. However, employers can not change complicated administrative formalities.

Earlier, Censor.NET reported that in Poland the number of Ukrainian migrant workers is decreasing, as more and more Ukrainian workers are reoriented to the markets of Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

Russia relocated to the occupied Crimea 108 thousand Russians to change the demographic composition of the population, - Yelchenko

Russia relocated to the occupied Crimea 108 thousand Russians to change the demographic composition of the population, - Yelchenko



The occupying country pursues a purposeful policy to change the demographic composition of the peninsula.

During four years of the annexation of the Ukrainian Crimea, Russia has transferred more than 100 thousand of its citizens to the peninsula, Volodymyr Yelchenko, the Permanent Representative of Ukraine, said at the UN Security Council meeting, reports Censor.NET with reference to UNIAN.

Such actions of the occupying country are aimed at changing the demographic composition of the Crimea, he said.

"During the 2014-2017 period, 108,000 people have been transferred from the Russian Federation to the Crimea and Sevastopol. What is this, if not a targeted policy to change the demographic composition of the region?" - quoted the ambassador of the publication.

According to Yelchenko, Russia continues to violate the rights of the Crimean Tatars and ignore the order of the United Nations International Court of Justice regarding measures under the lawsuit of Ukraine to the Russian Federation on the application of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.

In particular, it obliges the occupying country to refrain from restrictions on the ability of the Crimean Tatars to retain their representative bodies, including the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people. And it demands to guarantee the availability of education in Ukrainian.

"Despite the clear content of this order, the whole year has expired, and Russia continues to keep its prohibition on the Mejlis, while the number of students studying in the Ukrainian language has decreased from more than 13,000 to 2013-2014 academic year to 172 in the 2017-2018 academic year. pay attention and think about these numbers - more than 13 000 and 172. This is a difference", - emphasized Yelchenko.

Russian President Vladimir Putin believes that Russians "intimidate and terrorize" in Ukraine, the Baltic States and other states
He told about this at the World Congress of Russian compatriots in Moscow.

If Poroshenko loses: there was a dangerous forecast for the Donbas

on Wed Oct 31, 2018 5:57 pm
If Poroshenko loses: there was a dangerous forecast for the Donbas

De facto, German Chancellor Angela Merkel was one of the ideologues of the Minsk Agreements that did not work. Therefore, she probably wants to resolve the issue of Donbas before her departure, or at least try to keep the path towards a peaceful settlement.

This opinion was expressed in a commentary to the "Apostrophe", expressed by a People's Deputy from the Batkivshchyna faction, a member of the group on inter-parliamentary ties with Germany Alexei Ryabchin.

At the same time, according to him, the Chancellor will show in the course of his visit to Ukraine, and in the future, that Ukraine remains in the priority in Germany. All the promises of Berlin to Kiev will be fulfilled regardless of who will be at the head of the CDU. That is, there will be no support for the annexation of the Crimea and Russia's policies in the Donbas.

In turn, the former first deputy of the "foreign" committee of the Verkhovna Rada Taras Chornovil believes that in the event of Poroshenko's failure in the elections, the settlement process will stop at all, and Merkel will leave negotiations in the so-called Normandy format.

"I very seriously assume that if Poroshenko does not win the campaign, Germany will roll out in the Norman format. Merkel is tired of him, he does not bring her political advantages, being a serious headache because of disagreements with the German business through sanctions, Anatoly Poroshenko, but she promised nothing to anyone else, "Chornovil said to the Apostrophe.
