News -
Shelling from Putin's forces right along the front line, as usual this morning.
Everybody is waiting for a full-out attack by Putin. Why is he waiting? The oil price?
I think he knows that sanctions and isolation will increase further risking the complete disintegration of Russia itself.
Admin sent me to an oil company in Kiev on Friday to have a good talk about oil and gas deposits in Ukraine.
I can tell you that most - almost all - of the deposits are in "free" Ukraine territory.
I thought more would be in Donetsk, but no. Poltava particularly, and the Kharkiv border area, Kirovograd also.  
Mostly gas deposits, but some oil. Also a few smaller deposits in the west, nearer Lviv.
Also some in Crimea - mostly small - in the far east and west.
Ukraine is still exploring for more deposits. But each drill costs about 10 million dollars - quite a risk if you find nothing, which is often the case. But finding more deposits -  Vital really. It would help if it can get perhaps half of its gas needs from domestic supplies.
Currently I think the figure is nearer 20%.

Weather -
Cool - actually it is nice. 14 only at 0600. May get up to 24 today. But then 30+ for the rest of the week, I understand.
We had some rain again yesterday. Good for the potatoes and apple trees.

The evolution of the Ukrainian conflict, whether toward a settlement or toward escalation, will be most strongly shaped by relationship and actions between Moscow and Washington, not by Kyiv.

Phone calls between relatively low-level diplomats are normally not newsworthy. But Monday's conversation between U.S. Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland and Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin on the simmering conflict in Ukraine is an exception. The bilateral nature of the conversation and its timing amid mounting claims of ceasefire violations from the Ukrainian government and separatist forces makes it uniquely significant, according to a report by Stratfor, a U.S. geopolitical intelligence firm that provides strategic analysis and forecasting to individuals and organizations around the world.

Since the Ukrainian crisis started nearly 18 months ago, two negotiation formats in particular stand out among numerous talks and meetings. The first is the Minsk talks between representatives from the Ukrainian government, the pro-Russia separatists and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, which address the conflict on a tactical level. The other is the Normandy talks between representatives from Ukraine, Russia, Germany and France, which consider the conflict on a broader, political level. Notably absent from both talks, despite being a major political, economic and security player in Ukraine and the broader standoff between Russia and the West, is the United States. Washington has been diplomatically active in the conflict, but U.S. and Russian officials have met at various times only on an ad hoc basis.

However, this practice may have changed over the weekend, when Russian Presidential Chief of Staff Sergei Ivanov said in an interview that Russia and the United States had come to an agreement to set up a "special bilateral format" of talks between the two countries — talks that would involve Nuland and Karasin. In explaining the formal announcement, Ivanov said that expanding the Normandy format to include the United States would simply be too "risky," adding that the two countries would coordinate talks on Ukraine bilaterally "for the time being." Thus the phone call between Nuland and Karasin took place to discuss the implementation of the Minsk agreement and the constitutional reform process in Ukraine, with further discussions likely to follow.

The European Union has allocated EUR 600 million to Ukraine in the first tranche of macro-financial assistance totaling EUR 1.8 billion, according to the EU Delegation in Ukraine.

"The European Commission, on behalf of the EU, today disbursed a loan of €600 million to Ukraine. This corresponds to the first instalment under the new Macro-Financial Assistance (MFA) programme for Ukraine, which amounts to a total of €1.8 billion," the report reads.

"Through this programme, the EU contributes to cover the urgent financing needs faced by Ukraine, while supporting the country's economic stabilisation. In addition, the EU's MFA package will assist the Ukrainian authorities in implementing important reforms in the areas of public finance management, governance and transparency, the energy sector, social safety nets, the business environment and the financial sector. By supporting the Ukrainian government's reform agenda in those areas, the EU intends to help Ukraine lay the ground for a durable return to economic growth," the EU Delegation in Ukraine wrote.
The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry is outraged by reports on the plans of a group of French parliamentarians to visit Crimea.

"The trip of French deputies to the ARC [Autonomous Republic of Crimea] is an irresponsible step and disrespect for Ukrainian laws and the French/EU policy of non-recognition of the ARC's illegal occupation. Consequences are to follow," Ukrainian Foreign Ministry politics and communications department Director Oleksiy Makeyev said via Twitter on Wednesday.

Russian media reported earlier that a delegation of French parliamentarians coming to Crimea for a two-day visit on July 23 planned, in addition to the official program, to talk to ordinary residents of Yalta and Sevastopol, and visit a cemetery of French soldiers who died during the Crimean War and the 'Sevastopol Defense of 1854-1855' panorama museum.....................

Russia proposes to appoint a special envoy of the UN Secretary General to facilitate the investigation of the crash on the flight MH17 Donbass. This solution provides the draft resolution submitted to the RF Security Council of the world organization.

The document, a copy of which will be made ​​available "TASS" , requests addressed to the Chairman of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon during the two weeks after the adoption of the resolution to report to the Council "on the steps that will strengthen the role of the United Nations in support of the investigation, in particular the appointment of a special Representative of the Secretary General on the incident. "

This document does not say the need for a tribunal to prosecute those responsible for the plane crash, in contrast to the Malaysian text submitted last week. But the Russian draft resolution "demands that those responsible for air incident are brought to justice and to all States to cooperate in this direction at the end of an international investigation."

Russia and its President Vladimir Putin is facing problems due to the annexation of the Crimea, and therefore trying to "legalize" it, and to achieve recognition of the "lawfulness" of the capture of the peninsula from Ukraine and the world community. To achieve this, the Kremlin developed three scenarios for action. This says a senior analyst at the International Centre for Policy Studies, Anatoly Oktisyuk reports "Apostrophe" .

"In the Russian political and expert circles, the question of any change in the status of Crimea, or return it under Ukrainian sovereignty is not considered even theoretically. Therefore, any discussion on the status of Crimea on international markets is seen by the Russian side is very painful and negative. For more than a year with the help of the Kremlin war in the Donbas is trying to shift to the background Ukrainian and international attention and thus, temporarily close the "Crimean issue". But in Moscow understand that Crimea will always be a destabilizing factor, in fact - a frozen conflict, and without legalizing his status will not do "- said the expert.

According to him, to resolve the issue, "the Russian government analysts and experts were studied various strategies settlement. Some of these options are only discussed in intellectual circles, and some of them have already been tested without success. Each of these options provides the normalization of relations between Russia and the West at the expense of Ukrainian interests. "

Oktisyuk also named three of the Kremlin scenario:

"The first scenario. "Donbass-for-Crimea"

According to the plan the Kremlin strategists, "the territorial integrity of Ukraine in postkrymskih borders" is the best option for resolving the conflict of Russia and the West. Kremlin returns Donbass rights-wide decentralization, merges militants and "New Russia" in exchange for an official denial of the Kiev authorities of the Crimea. The West, in turn, limits, and then completely removes the Russian economy sanctions. Moscow is going to compromise on other important issues, especially Iran and Syria. Thus, international tensions are removed and the threat of a new world war, and Russia keeps your face and out of the conflict with minimal reputational and financial losses.

The second scenario. "The economic package in exchange for the Crimea"

The second package was considered as an addition to the first and includes a complex of economic and stabilization measures. Russia pays cash compensation for the Crimean industry, infrastructure, and returns to Kiev captured during the annexation of ships and other military-technical facilities. The Russian government is even ready to write off the debts of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych times. In addition, the envisaged 30 per cent discount on gas for Ukrainian companies and the establishment of Russian-Ukrainian Fund of reconstruction and the resumption of destruction of industrial eastern Ukraine.

The third scenario. "Holding a second referendum"

For the realization of this scenario Moscow throws all his financial and diplomatic efforts. The Kremlin believes that a second referendum in the Crimea - is a legitimate reason for the EU and the US to put up with the Crimea and to restore a constructive relationship with Russia. Such information stuffing appear on behalf of the former European functionaries or bureaucrats who have very close ties with the Russian leadership. For example, with respect to a second referendum expressed the former president of France in the years 1974-1981 Valery Giscard d'Estaing: "Since the referendum in Crimea was somewhat" impromptu "in a reasonable time, a year or two or three, it will arrange with the classic international guarantees, to find out what they want the residents of the Crimea."

There have been many reports that NATO wasn't up to snuff and that many NATO members had to increase their financial responsibility towards the organization. Some countries are beefing about it. But there has been increased, including increase of military equipment and maneuvers.

So, by the intimidation they've put forward NATO's abilities have gotten better. As we've seen, there's been more military games, such as in the Black Sea and in the Mediterranean Sea, just to mention a couple. So Russia again shot themselves on the foot.

Roland Oliphant, after his vague comments on MH17, has produced a better article for the Telegraph. There is hope yet for that newspaper.
I quote his last 3 or 4 sentences -

One year on, MH17 evidence against separatists appears overwhelming
a study of Russian soldiers' social media accounts that they argued linked the launcher seen in Snizhne to Russia’s 53rd air defence brigade based in Kursk.
If they are right, it would explain Mr Churkin’s reluctance to countenance an international tribunal to try the culprits.
If the Buk that fired on July 17 was supplied by the Russian army, and especially if it was crewed by Russian soldiers, ultimate responsibility for MH17 lies with one man.

If Russia invaded the Baltic states, NATO go to war with her. This was stated by a former adviser to the US president, the American political scientist Zbigniew Brzezinski, reports Der Spiegel.
