News -
Dominated in Ukraine with talk about the conflict between the government and the Pravi Sektor.
Almost impossible to know what the truth of the situation is.
It may simply have been a conflict between who controls the contraband scene on the Hungarian border.
A good friend of mine was lucky to miss the shoot out. He drove through the border a few hours before it happened.
Just spoke to other friends in the military. They say that the MP Lano was a serious mafia figure who controls the police and SBU in Zakapathia.
Other reports - another 2000 mercenaries arrived in Donetsk. Looks like they are now being more closely controlled by Russia.
The Greek euro issue runs on and on and on. The hryvnia has fallen a little recently. 22.4/ 22.9 yesterday.

Update - ATO report on last 24 hours. No dead. 5 injured.

Weather -
Cold again this morning. About 12C at 0600. Rising a little now by 0730. High perhaps of 23 today. Ok, but coolish for July.

And related to the above story, also in the Moscow Times,

War in Ukraine Ruined Russian Military Reform (Op-Ed) [in English]
All of the soldiers under investigation were contract personnel, not conscripts. ...
The strength of any army lies in the faith the men have in their commander. But in this case, the soldiers firmly believed that their commanders were lying to them about unheard-of salaries in the Donbass and treating them as cannon fodder. These lies started one year ago ...
The worst part is that similar outrages probably plague all of Russia's armed forces. That will only reduce the number of people wanting to sign on as professional soldiers. And that means the president will eventually decide to go back to the concept of a mass mobilization army. In the end, what difference would that make, if professional soldiers and conscripts alike are treated as little more than slaves?

Regarding the post two above, the PS have denied taking a boy hostage, saying it is "fiction".

A Russian court has sentenced a schoolteacher to correctional labor for a poem about Ukraine (Commander)

"I have done my duty poet and citizen, and I am not ashamed for any of the written word - he said. - My conscience is clear. I have nothing to defend. I am an honest man, and I can openly look people in the eye. And let history judge us, "- said the former.
Reportedly, the Doctor of Philology, Professor Galina Trofimova, as an expert of the Moscow Guild of linguists experts on documentary and informational disputes (Gladys), denied the existence of extremism in the poem of the defendant. She was questioned on June 24 in court.
Earlier, Alexander Byvshevu, German teacher from the village Kromy Orel region, in the presence of a lawyer handed the decision to institute criminal proceedings on extremism on the part 1 of Article 282 of the Criminal Code.


To put this into context, can you image a similar scenario in the USA and Canada.
Imaging a teacher in the US writing a poem about Canada....
And then being charged with "extremism"....
This shows just where Shaun Walker and RT and Kissilov's mad propaganda has got to.
Russia is itself out of control with regard to "extremism".
More than fifty evidence were gathered in a volume entitled "Hiding in Plain Sight: Putin's War in Ukraine." As U.S. expert Elliot Higgins told the Radio Liberty, the data from open sources were used while collecting and analyzing the information.

"We used information from the social networks, used actively by the Russian soldiers. The soldiers take photos of themselves against the background of military equipment bearing the Russian military symbolic. Quite often, soldiers take pictures in places where they are deployed. We also refer to the satellite images and Google maps to clarify the location of the Russians in Donbas," Higgins said.

According to the experts, the number of Russian military is increasing in Ukraine and along its borders and now exceeds 50 thousand people.

The Atlantic Council also states it has the facts showing the increase in number of Russian military along the borders with the member states of the EU and the NATO in Eastern Europe............
