News -
Update at midday - В зоні АТО обійшлося без загиблих, 2 поранено
No dead, 2 injured in ATO area. Perhaps the lowest figure for months.
Perhaps Putin has told the Russians to stop killing around the MH17 anniversary?

Admin sent me to Kiev this morning to check out the situation there.
The first thing I noticed - several checkpoints outside the city with Pravi Sector flags. And men in masks.
No problems. Frankly, it makes me feel safer.
I met a worker for Batkivshina. He has met Tymoshenko. Knowledgeable about politics. We had a good chat.
Mukachevo - he said not just cigarette smuggling, but that the whole area around there was involved in smuggling.
Cigarettes, alcohol, electronic goods, but also drugs coming in the otherway, for example from Amsterdam to Ukraine.
Western news on Ukraine dominated by the anniversary of MH17.
Not a bad report in the Telegraph, but... but... that idiot Roland Oliphant adds his own commentary, trying to make out a case that all is unclear.
There is nothing unclear. Putin shot down the plane with a missile system from Russia.
But Oliphant, just like Shaun Walker, has lived in Russia for well over a decade.
He values his residency document far more than telling the truth to the readers of his paper.
You will recall that Oliphant was the scumball who advised idiot editor David Blair of the Telegraph to write that Ukraine was being "heavy handed" in its war against Putin's 5000 tanks. Too many British scumball journalists living cushy lives in Moscow. And being "economical with the truth" for a (allegedly) payback from their ultimate boss, Mr Putin and the Kremlin machine.

Weather -
Humid. Kiev - clouding over as I left. But warm. 26. Some sunshine.

Wellp, it was inevitable, right? The U.S. is making inroads into Ukraine’s energy sector, judging by talks this week in Washington.

Representatives from Ukrainian natural gas company Naftogaz participated in the first U.S.-Ukrainian Business Forum on Monday. Andriy Kobolyev, Naftogaz’s CEO, met with U.S. business leaders, government officials and international financial institutions to discuss Ukraine’s natural gas market and the prospects for future investment.

Naftogaz has long been a partner of Russian state controlled behemoth Gazprom. But the two are going through a bitter divorce. The two countries have been locking horns for over a year and a half now, putting the U.S. and E.U. in the middle as peace brokers. While Gazprom has been a partner with Naftogaz for years, replacing it with someone else in Ukraine, or elsewhere, is probably high on its radar. Gazprom and Naftogaz are currently in pay disputes being brokered by the E.U. The two sides can barely talk to each other without a European intermediary.

The rift has created opportunities for U.S. energy companies looking to get into the lucrative European market.

Some of the reforms in the works in Ukraine that bode well for American firms include:

1. Elimination of intermediaries in gas trade, previously the primary source of corruption in Ukraine’s gas sector;
2. Strengthening the country’s energy security through diversification of gas imports away from Russia;
3. Initiation of the liberalization of domestic prices for natural gas, which paves the way to new projects in energy efficiency and increasing domestic gas production;
4. Development of a new corporate governance strategy at Naftogaz; and lastly…
5. Adoption of Ukraine’s new Gas Market Law, which is fully compliant with the E.U. Third Energy Package and makes the Ukrainian gas market more transparent....................

Chairman of the Georgian National Platform of Civil Society Forum of the Eastern Partnership, Lasha Tugushi has initiated the prohibition of Russian state TV channels in Georgia. At the press conference, Lasha Tugushi said that these channels are poisoning the population of Georgia.

According to him, the strategic documents developed by the state, are a great luxury for Georgia.

"We have, for example, is not defined what we are doing with the Russian channels that poison our population. This, unfortunately, cable television make money. We are looking at a very simple, easy, and see how increase pro-Russian sentiment in Georgia as a result of this poison. The machine, which works very effectively, affect mood, people's attitudes, including the conflict. Often highly developed countries accept such pressure as a problematic, they spend huge money in the opposite direction. Russia is spending billions on propaganda, and we oppose it, we have no leverage for it "- said Tugushi.

According to him, the Russian state channels should either be limited by legal means or directly from them need to be abandoned.

"These channels should be limited by legal means, because they are propaganda for war, engendered hatred. Then, when our channels under our laws are vulnerable in respect of the Russian channels, we have no leverage. There is a legal way to enter them into your space, use appropriate sanctions to them, and such instruments have to date not. Another way to directly abandon these channels, at least, to have refused to cable channels. I do not know how to do it. At least, if you know what to sell poison, it does not have to sell it. It is a moral issue. I personally, as a citizen, I call to review these relations. Perhaps someone will say that this is not a democracy, and democracy is pluralism, but pluralism of what we say, when not dealing with the media. Russian state channels are not a means of media, they are the channel, where our country goes poison, so I do not think there should be a standard Democratic talking rhetoric. Moreover, when a large part of Georgian territory is occupied and we are with this country, in fact, martial law, "- said Tugushi.

According to him, Georgia has to look at the actions of other countries, such as Lithuania, which to remove these channels from their information space, as these are limited to television in Ukraine. In Russian

Kazakhstan will not be used in two-way trade with Ukraine to Annex №6 Agreement on the establishment of free trade within the CIS.

This commitment is one of the provisions of the Protocol, adopted on the results of the twelfth meeting of the Ukrainian-Kazakh intergovernmental commission on economic cooperation.

Recall application №6 Agreement on the establishment of free trade within the CIS allows member countries of the Customs Union to unilaterally raise customs duties on goods from CIS countries that have concluded free trade agreements with third countries - unless it is detrimental to their national economy.

In fact, this point was accepted for blocking the conclusion of the Association Agreement with the EU, Ukraine and Moldova.

Official Moscow has repeatedly stated that it intends to use this opportunity as soon as from the beginning of 2016 will earn a free trade regime in Ukraine and the EU. To prevent this now works tripartite commission to find ways of eliminating the causes that can cause damage to the Russian economy from a free trade regime between Ukraine and EU.

The well-known lawyer, a judge of the International Tribunal years 2002-2005. Vladimir Vasilenko interview with "Commander in Chief" talked about what would happen in the case of blocking the creation of the Russian Federation of the Malaysian Court of crash Boeing flight MN17.

Recall that the UN Security Council began work on a resolution on the establishment of the International Tribunal in the case of the downed Boeing MH-17. And the work of the Tribunal under the auspices of the UN can always be locked permanent Security Council members Russia, which opposed the establishment of such a court.

"Of course, Russia is likely to block the adoption of the resolution, said Vasilenko. - But this is an indirect confirmation of the fact that Boeing MH-17 was hit by a rocket launcher Russian Federation. Another court without a UN mandate can not be. The Court should only be created UN. Only then he will have the competence, legitimacy, will have the right to hear the case. "

"Russians have always talked about the fact that they are not involved at all in what happened, they have enough evidence allegedly showing that the Ukrainian Air Force shot down the plane. Of course, the proposal to establish an international tribunal proceeded from the assumption that Russia would provide all the evidence that she has to prove his innocence. If she does not agree, then, as I said, this may indirectly indicate the fault of Russia ", - said the lawyer

He spoke about what legal mechanisms exist to date to prove the involvement of the perpetrator.

"As you know, representatives of the prosecuting authorities, in particular Malaysia, the Netherlands, Belgium, Ukraine, Australia set up a joint investigation team, which is almost completed its work. Already prepared a preliminary report, in which the country within a month, they can submit their comments. The final version of the document to be presented on October 30. The report sets out the facts relating to the death of all the circumstances of this aircraft. To all the facts were appreciated from a legal point of view, to the wine was set specific individuals involved in this international crime, it is necessary to establish the International Tribunal. This court will be composed of independent judges with an impeccable reputation, who will be able to objectively evaluate the evidence collected by the Commission, consisting of representatives of different countries. That is, in this international commission, which is now investigating, may contain bias. Therefore, the task of judges will exclude any bias. On the other hand, they will be able to give a legal assessment of what happened, to identify the perpetrators and take the sentences, which will be recorded by the punishment of those responsible and compensation for damage. Simultaneously with the adoption of the UN resolution on the establishment of the court should adopt a resolution that would approve the statute of the court. The charter must be provided and the procedure for the formation of this body and the procedure for its operation. This is an ideal scheme, if the creation of this body still supports the UN Security Council, "- said the lawyer.

Vasilenko said that if Russia will object, there are two ways out of this situation.

"Firstly, there is adopted in the 1950 UN General Assembly resolution №377« Unity for Peace ". This resolution provides that, when the UN Security Council could not agree on the measures to be applied in order to prevent violations of the general peace, or questions related to the breach of the peace, then the General Assembly of the majority and it 2/3 everyone can take a decision. It follows that The General Assembly can also vote for the creation of such a body.

Secondly, there are five countries that initiate the creation of an international court. All these countries must recognize the Rome Statute accept the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court. Ukraine and Malaysia, if the latter is not a party to the Rome Statute, should declare a one-time recognition of the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court. Then, countries should collectively address the International Court of Justice to review the case of individual production "- summed up Vasilenko. In Russian

Putin is trying to cover up his crime in Ukraine, - Die Welt (Hvilya)
The Russian side has been a year trying to conceal the circumstances of the crime. It does this because the circumstances she personally is very well known. Installation of "Buk" with four missiles happened before left Russia and went to the barracks across the border to the launch site. After the crime, only three missiles, she went back to Russia.
There are many theories about the perpetrators. But only one, it is this, provable observation many eyewitnesses. International Commission of Inquiry in its report apparently came to the same conclusion.

“The majority of Serbs do not recognize the crimes of Milosevic” or the genocide they carried out against Bosnian Muslims, Croatians and Kosovo Albanians. They talk about these events in religious terms and view themselves as having defended their own people against “’a satanic attack on the Orthodox world.’”

By Paul Goble* for “Windows on Eurasia”:

Russia and Serbia have a long history of warm and close ties, reflecting their similar situations and especially the propensity of people in each to draw parallels between the Serbian-Croatian wars and the Russian-Ukrainian ones, Kseniya Kirillova says. But despite that, Moscow is on its way to “losing Serbia just as it has already lost Ukraine.”

The reason for that, the US-based Russian analyst says, is that Moscow is overplaying its hand, supporting Serbian nationalists against the Serbian government which has shown itself more than willing to cooperate with Russia but does not want to break all ties with the European Union and the West (

Moscow’s miscalculations, she suggests, is that Serbian nationalists like their Russian counterparts find it “very difficult” to imagine that members of their nation can live beyond their state borders and are inclined to declare territories beyond their own borders as “sacred” to their nation and state.

Like many Russians today, Serbs call for the annexation of Kosovo in the name of defending their co-nationals and demand that borders be redrawn on the basis of the ethnicity of residents and that they should all be included “in the borders of “’a single large country.’” And also like Russians, the Serbs feel that those attacking them represent “a mortal danger” to them.

In addition, both Serbs and Russians, the Russian analyst says, view their own sufferings as holy, “do not see their own guilt” for specific crimes, and “do not remember the evil which their people visited on others,” even though they “well remember” that which was imposed on them.

“The majority of Serbs do not recognize the crimes of Milosevic” or the genocide they carried out against Bosnian Muslims, Croatians and Kosovo Albanians. They talk about these events in religious terms and view themselves as having defended their own people against “’a satanic attack on the Orthodox world.’”.................

Never-before-seen footage reveals Russian-backed rebels arriving at the wreckage of MH17

According to the French le monde the video is 17 minutes long, but the longest version I can find to date is 4 minutes - posted further up this page.
Supposedly the 17 minute version was posted by the Sydney Daily Telegraph. But I can't see anything there.

Very interesting report.
US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland said this at a briefing in Kyiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

According to her, Ukraine carries out its obligations. Now it is time for the other party to do its work required by the Minsk agreements.

According to her, 228 votes of people's deputies of the Verkhovna Rada for amendments to the Constitution have given a strong mandate for the first real decentralization of the country, which, in particular, is intended to fight corruption.

"It was an important step for deoligarchisation and desovietization of the country in order to free the country of the past structures and to come closer to Europe," she said...........

10 deputies voted against the document, 26 abstained from the vote. 52 have not voted at all.

Presenting the document, Poroshenko Bloc faction leader Yurii Lutsenko announced: "This draft stipulates for elections to be held on Oct. 25 this year, except for the occupied territories and territories where Russian-supported mercenaries and Russian occupational forces operate. At the same time, this bill solves the issue with elections at Ukraine-liberated territories. For instance, Shyrokyne village. Can elections be held there? This should be decided by the the Central Elections Commission, which shall present a relevant decision to the Rada. We believe this mechanism enables to hold elections in all locations where standards of fair, transparent, and safe elections are secured." In Russian

MH17 disaster: New footage shows rebels picking through dead passenger's luggage
The video shows the dawning realisation that a civilian jet, rather than a Ukrainian military plane, had been shot down over Ukraine...
They had reportedly been sent on a mission to find Ukrainian pilots believed to have parachuted down from the supposed military aircraft....
In one shot, a man wearing military fatigues and what appears to be a rebel Donetsk People’s Republic ID can be seen.
The militants seem wary of the filming, with one saying: “I don’t like it if it’s leaked on the internet.”

[That's why Shaun Walker and Roland Oliphant are in Moscow. They can cover it all up... maybe this, maybe that, maybe Obama shot it down... the CIA...
Such as the British resident "journalists" in Moscow. ]

Video Purports to Show Rebel Dismay After Downing of Malaysian Jet in Ukraine
A year to the day after Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down over Ukraine, an Australian news organization released a video purporting to show pro-Russian separatists walking amid the wreckage, expressing increasing dismay as item after item indicates that the aircraft was a passenger jet.
The video, whose authenticity has not been independently verified, was released on Friday by News Corp Australia, which did not say how it had obtained it. Thirty-eight Australian citizens and permanent residents were among the 298 people killed on the flight, and the video emerged on the day a memorial to them was dedicated in Canberra, the capital....
“Is there another plane?” one man asks as he walks over charred debris, adding later: “This is passenger.”
“Malaysia,” a voice says. “Foreigners.”

President's Address on the anniversary of the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 disaster [in English]
Exactly one year ago a regular passenger Boeing 777 of Malaysian Airlines – flight MH17 – was on route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. 283 passengers. 15 members of the crew. Citizens of 10 countries. 80 children, three of them toddlers under the age of 2. Doctors, scientists, politicians, civil activists. Daughters, sons, grandfathers and grandmothers, spouses.
Unfortunately, this civilian aircraft and 298 people on board became a target of a ruthless terrorist attack, launched from a territory occupied by the Russian-backed militants in the East of Ukraine. A highly technological weapon, with which the aircraft was shot could have come into hands of the terrorists only from Russia. It would not have happened without participation, without a direct order from the highest political and military leadership of the neighboring state. Exactly a year ago a camouflage of the ugly hybrid war launched against Ukraine was taken off.

The video referred to above.
This youtube video is a longer - 4 minute - version of that above in the Telegraph report.
It includes subtitles in English.
Clearly the Russians were expecting a military plane, but they shot down a Malaysian airliner.

Horror video reveals MH17 crash aftermath

Fairly early on they want to find the black box flight recorders. They say - "orange". "yes, orange"...
Interesting that they want to find these quickly.

Clearly the Russian terrorists are very angry that they shot down a civilian airliner. One of the guys is swearing.
Another says "who gave them the right to flight over here " "corridor".
Putin was expecting dead Ukrainians, and instead he got dead Australians, Malaysians, Dutch, English, and so on.
And lots and lots of children.
Another great success for Putin and his aspiring Russian empire. The devil himself would have been proud of this willful act of mass murder.

'Sickening' footage of Russian-backed rebels arriving at MH17 crash site emerges [in English]
Footage from the MH17 disaster shows Russian-backed rebels handling bodies and rummaging through the bags of dead passengers as they express shock that the aircraft they brought down was a commercial aircraft.
Describing the footage as “sickening to watch”, Julie Bishop, Australia’s foreign minister, said it was further evidence that the attack on the plane was deliberately targeted by a missile....
Tony Abbott, Australia’s prime minister, said the video further highlighted that “this was an atrocity, it was in no way an accident”.
"They may not have known that they were shooting down a passenger plane but they were deliberately shooting out of the sky what they knew was a large aircraft," he told ABC News.
“Rebels don’t get hold of this kind of weaponry by accident. I mean, this was obviously very sophisticated weaponry. We are confident that it was weaponry that came across the border from Russia, fired, and then shortly thereafter, once it was realised what had happened, went back into Russia.


MEGA SCUMBALL REPORTER Roland Oliphant - Shaun Walker school of journalism - they worked together at RIA Novosti - adds comments for the Telegraph. Idiotic comments... Walker and Oliphant are Moscow residents, loyal to Putin. Idiots. The scum of the earth. Oliphant....

There is also a lot of confusion.....
Often, it turns out to be half-true ....
Then there is talk about a second aircraft ....
It could simply be a matter of confusion......
It could be a quickly thought-up excuse,.....

Such is Roland Oliphant, "journalist" for RIA Novosti and The Telegraph.
Very much (allegedly) on the Putin payroll. He has been before - works or worked for RIA Novosti, the Russia propanganda machine.
He also hangs around all the time with Shaun Walker - Walker is highly intelligent and produces very clever propaganda for the Kremlin, Russiaprofile, and reproduces it also for the British Guardian.

"Putin may use any concept, to quote some of Berdyaev, Ilyin is, despite all the differences between these philosophers when he needed to justify some completely practical actions and solutions. His task - to preserve the situation, to fill this sprawling building foundation liquid nitrogen or some more material of this order to have enough for our age, which fully meets the psycho conservative tactics and practice, "- said Belkovsky.
