Today is a national holiday - Trinity.
But some places are open. I noticed a car dealership was working as usual.
And also the main shopping centre.
But - basically - It was quiet this morning, very quiet, as I went for a walk by the river in the park.
I met a couple of drunks - man and woman - who had obviously spent the entire night in the park )
such sometimes is the "holiday" in Ukraine for many.
I was reading the last post yesterday by Admin - someone suggesting that Russia under Putin is now worse than the Soviet Union under Stalin.
Maybe. His control of all is absolute. And the fear of the Russian people is very significant.

The squirrels in the park don't have a care in the world.
But the people - Putin has made the whole world worried.

Weather -
A lovely morning. Some cloud. I went to the park and had a game of badminton. Some children were playing volleyball quite early - around 9 am.
Temperature now, at mid day - about 26. Comfortable.

On the river, the water is still. A nice morning for fishing. A couple of boats are out there. Some cloud, light wind, a touch of sun.

This decision, according to the author, said the closure of "New Russia".

"Ukrainian blockade of Transdniestria, likely brings the project a final line under the so-called" New Russia ", folding which two weeks ago, said the leader of the eponymous movement, former MP from the Party of Regions Oleg Tsarev. As you know, this project represents the creation of a pro-Russian puppet state Education "New Russia", which was to extend from Kharkov to Odessa region precisely to connect Russia and Transnistria "- he recalled.

Moscow’s top five myths, fakes and stupidities about Ukraine this week

1. When Moscow Needs ‘Evidence’ of Ukrainian ‘Fascism,’ the DNR Comes Through. The Russian foreign ministry said that Moscow hopes the OSCE will react to what it said was the presence of Nazi symbols on Ukrainian military equipment. Shortly thereafter, Bukovsky reports, Aleksandr Zakharchenko, the head of the DNR, came through with what Moscow said it needed. He showed a Ukrainian flag with a swastika drawn on it but provided no evidence that he had not put the swastika on it himself ( ).

2. Stalin is Now a Regular on Russian Icons – and Putin Makes an Appearance There Too.

DNR field commanders this week said that that Ukrainian forces were preparing “a new chemical weapons attack.” But the reports collapsed of their own weight because those who made these declarations demonstrated by what they said that they had no idea what was contained in containers that they insisted had chemical weapons (

5. ‘No One Doubts’ Life is Becoming More Joyous in the DNR – Except Those Living There. When conditions were at their worst in Soviet times, Moscow propagandists resorted to the formulation that “no one has any doubts” that things are getting better. Now, the DNR powers that be have adopted the same formula: Those who look around themselves can see that there are problems, but the pro-Moscow forces insist that “no one has any doubts” that everything is getting better all the time (
