News -
I was amazed that Greece signed a 2 billion dollar agreement for a pipeline that will bypass Ukraine.
Greece - absolutely disgusting people. Thieves who don't want to repay their debts.
And also murderers, who don't care less about Putin killing 10,000 people in the Donbass.
The Greeks couldn't care less. Absolute scum of the earth.

It also looks like Putin is going to veto the Malaysian resolution for a tribunal on MH17. For obvious reasons.

Weather -
Cool.... 15C this morning. It feels like winter after the past 2 or 3 days of 34 or 35.
Also cloudy. Ukraine needs more rain, but I don't think it is going to happen.

Moscow is preparing for a new attack. July-August - the best time for a military campaign in the steppes of Donbass, and Russian terrorists certainly take advantage of this. But the march to Kiev or Odessa, Mariupol taking, likely will not.

This was announced by Pavel Felgenhauer - an independent Russian military analyst.

In his opinion, that the objectives are the same as in the winter campaign, and both Debaltsevo Donetsk airport. "Russian generals want to spend fighting, quite persistent, but not deep, with respect to capture important pieces of territory, push the front line and cause Ukrainian forces offensive, humiliating defeat. Break their morale and, consequently, cause a political crisis in Kiev and, obviously, regime change, "- says Felgenhauer.

Hike to Odessa or Kiev it seems unlikely. "The capture of Mariupol also now seems unlikely, because the siege and storming of the big city - it is a very serious problem."

There are concrete buildings, industry, and it is a terrible thing - to fight in an urban environment with the enemy, which is stuck in concrete buildings, the expert explained. "Azovstal", there is a very strong concrete, basements, floors, walls, these buckets to roll with the molten metal. Howitzer shells do not take it, it's useless. It is necessary to reset the bomb, or "Pinocchio" burn it all, that is, air explosives. "

The siege of Mariupol means that half a million city will have to bulldoze and "tinkering, probably more than one month." Unless, that is before "in a series of battles in the region of Sands, Avdeevka, Marinka, happiness, village Lugansk, Ukrainian whole front will be greatly brought down, and it will begin panic retreat, then can hope that too will flee from Mariupol. But the assault on him, I think the military will resist. "

In August of 2014 stopped at the threshold of Mariupol, "which could then be easy to take," - said Felgenhauer. "And after Ilovaysk stopped. They took, of course, Lugansk airport deblocked Lugansk and Donetsk and stopped. We signed quite quickly Minsk-1 ", apparently in the hope that will be able to negotiate with Poroshenko, a Russian expert supposes. In Russian

This was announced by Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov.

"I want to note that the establishment of an international tribunal to investigate the case of the downed" Boeing "- a joint initiative of Ukraine, the Netherlands, Australia and Malaysia," - he said in an interview to "Interfax-Ukraine" , when asked about the attitude of Kiev to the initiative with respect to Tribunal.

According to him, "all who are interested in the responsibility for the mass killings of terrorists, support this initiative." "At the same time Russia to hide his crime was trying to thwart the investigation and misinform the public. Do you remember their version and "witnesses" telling something about Ukrainian plane of the Ukrainian rocket, then some other worthless and false version, "- said the Secretary of the NSDC.

According to him, such a provocation of the Russian side does not make any sense, because it has no alternative proved that the Russian "Buck" serviced by Russian servicemen from the occupied territory shot down civilian aircraft. "This is an obvious fact, which has a huge evidence base. That is not an assumption, it is a proven fact. And, of course, the tribunal, the creation of which we fully support, will investigate this topic, and Putin and his associates realize that they have to answer, "- said Turchinov secretary.

He is convinced that the fact of knowing quite severe responsibility for such actions, Russia is trying to block the final stage of its consideration of the case in court.

"I am convinced that Russia, as a country that turned its troops in the bloody terrorists, and bearing full responsibility for this crime, the defendant should be in this Tribunal and has no moral or legal right to block the decision on its establishment," - concluded the Secretary NSDC.

Recall, the Malaysian delegation to the United Nations submitted a draft UN Security Council resolution demanding form an international tribunal for an independent investigation of the downed in July last year over the territory of Ukraine "Boeing-777". In Russian

"There is now such a guarantee that we will now be for the fight. The task of the Ukrainian people ", - said Chaly.

He also noted that in respect of Donbass already changed understanding of the threats.

"There is a concentration of forces of NATO countries, the United States, the European Union next to the territory of Ukraine, as well as their allies, which border with Ukraine. It is absolutely clear signal that attempts to escalate the conflict have led to the use of other means of struggle ", - he said. In Russian

This of course is something they should've admitted, when this conflict started. They can't guarantee their members that they can fight themselves out of a brown paper bag. All they can guarantee is, Germany and France will continue to prosper, on the backs of the rest of the members.

Everyone knows how I feel about this disgusting so-called union that can't even get their overall economy together. That's the main reason I don't want to see Ukraine become an EU member. They'll probably be more successful than the EU's shown to be.

Let thme go down the tubes and not take Ukraine with them.

The process of peaceful settlement of the situation in the east of Ukraine is experiencing difficulties through the unwillingness of the Ukrainian authorities to negotiate with the representatives of illegal armed groups.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said, Censor.NET informs citing Interfax-Ukraine.
"I actually believe that the settlement process is stuck to a certain extent due to the fact that our partners in Kyiv have no desire to negotiate directly with the Donbas - with Luhansk and Donetsk," he said at press availability in Ufa on Friday.

According to the president, it looked somewhat strange, as "the partners from Kyiv insisted that the leaders of the Donetsk and Luhansk breakaway regions appeared in Minsk, that they personally signed these documents."

"Now we see that they do not want to be negotiated with, but why then they were asked to come and sign the documents? It's really strange," Putin said.

"Let's rely on the fact that it is just a tactical move. I'm more inclined to believe that we have a better chance to succeed than to fail," Russia's president said.

He stressed that "there is no other solution to Ukraine's problem except for opportunities to resolve it peacefully through a full and unconditional implementation of the agreements reached in Minsk." In Russian

Blame yourself for what is happening. If you wouldn't have told Yanukovich not to sign the Association Agreement, this wouldn't have started. Then you say Russian speaking Ukrainians were being persecuted.

My wife has been speaking Russian in Odessa oblast for decades and was NEVER persecuted.

Now you're trying to blame Kyiv for something you've enflamed. Are you so concerned about your supporters going against you within Russia because so many of your soldiers are coming back in body bags and you don't say why or how they died, when their family members ask you.

You're a sorry excuse for a leader. Your plans have totally failed. And don't think Kyiv's going to negotiate wih terrorists as you called them yourself. Your county's going to continue to lose out on this and they're going to take you out, sooner or later. You're running scared and that's why you speak such cheap words to your supporters.

Best thing to do is get out of Ukraine and perhaps your supporters will spare your life.
Ukraine undertook certain commitments during the negotiation process on the settlement of the conflict in the Donbas. Now the problem is that the Western partners insist on fulfillment of all the agreements by Ukraine at once. The Ambassador of Ukraine to the United States believes that the implementation of the Minsk Agreements must be mutual but not by Ukraine alone.

Ukraine's Ambassador to the United States Valerii Chalyi said in an interview to ZN.UA, when asked whether the West seriously believes that it is possible to hold democratic elections in "certain territories of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions" in current conditions according to all OSCE standards, Censor.NET reports.

"But we clearly understand that it is difficult to imagine holding any elections without withdrawal of equipment, without closure of the border, which all of this equipment is supplied through, without the release of the hostages. And when the situation comes to a standstill, the European partners are starting, so to say, to encourage Ukraine to be more active in the implementation of the Minsk Agreements. Even if some items are not fulfilled by Russia," Chalyi said. Commenting on the remark that Russia has not fulfilled any article of the Minsk Agreements and the question whether it is not easier for the West to put pressure on Ukraine than the Russian Federation, Chalyi noted that Ukraine's cooperation with the OSCE mission and all the partners was in the order of magnitude better than the Russian Federation's one.

"Today, no one can say that Ukraine is not a responsible partner and not worth carrying out negotiations with. All attempts to show that it is Ukraine that violates the Minsk agreements has failed. This is evident from the reports of the OSCE recording presence of the Russian weapons and regular units of the Russian Federation Army in the territory of Ukraine," the ambassador said. Defining features of local self-government in certain parts of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions as well as the implementation of commitments on decentralization and constitutional reform were called by Chalyi the "preparatory steps" which the Ukrainian side had made. "But it is absolutely unacceptable for us if Ukraine would have made all political decisions and the people with assault rifles would "ensure" the electoral process during the elections in the Donbas," the Ambassador said. He reminded that Ukraine has clearly voiced its conditions, which by no means were contrary to the Minsk Agreements: the holding of elections according to the Ukrainian legislation, in accordance with the norms of the OSCE ODIHR with a participation of all Ukrainian political parties and the media. "We are ready to do it. Because the Donbas needs to be communicated with through the people who represent it. But these people are not the armed militants, who have shown their total inability to provide normal conditions for the people. It is profitable for them to keep fighting. They make money on it, for example, by organizing smuggling," Chalyi said. He also stressed that the Ukrainian-Russian border should be closed.

"There is an option to provide control through the OSCE first and then restore full control with the help of the Ukrainian border guards. But these moves should be at least simultaneous. It should not be like Ukraine fulfills everything it is required first and then Russia considers whether it is necessary to stop the supply of heavy equipment and mercenaries across the border. It is unacceptable. Therefore, our position is clear: on the one hand, we strictly fulfill our obligations and on the other one -we require the same strict fulfillment of the Minsk agreements by all other parties," he said.

Putin’s declaration that Russia will impose a ban on the formation of an international tribunal to probe into Malaysian Boeing downing is self-confession of Kremlin’s guilt, expert Yury Butusov writes in Facebook July 10.

“Now all the hubbub about the Ukrainian jet that fired a missile at the Boeing has lost its sense,” the expert says.

It does not mean that Russia can stop the investigation – all the dubious evidence will be interpreted against Russia, he says.

However, Putin’s boycott of the tribunal work will have massive and crushing consequences for the Kremlin ruler, he says.

Putin’s refusal to admit his guilt will lead to the eventual isolation of Russia, Yury Butusov says.
