This was decided at a meeting on July 23, reports "Mediananny."

As shown by monitoring, thematic channels violated the law of Ukraine - in particular, a law banning some Russian TV series.

"Arms", for example, aired the program "Arsenal Russia" and "Shock Force", which shows the power of the Russian army and security services.

Representatives of the channel "House of Cinema" tried to convince the Council that the broadcast in Ukraine, "adapted" version of its channel, but in response to members of the National Council explained that the monitoring was held on the appeal of Chernivtsi viewer who saw the banned content in its cable network. And the work of the National Council confirmed the violation.

As an example, she led the oligarch gas companies - OOO "Nadra Geocenter" and LLC "Khas" - from which the state received less for the three months in 2015, the rent in the amount of UAH 300 million. In addition, according to Chornovol, these companies first sell gas at a lower price firms "pads", and they are implementing it at a much higher cost. Because of this, the State budget loses income tax.

Thus, the representative of the "People's Front" reported that Yulia Tymoshenko has recently registered in the Verkhovna Rada a bill №2835, which proposes to remove the previously initiated by the Government of the rate of payment of 70% of the rent for natural gas production by private enterprises operating under the contract with the joint venture "Ukrgasdobycha" . People's deputy noted that the gas companies of Alexander Onishchenko work is under such contracts, receiving profits.

"This bill is signed exclusively Tymoshenko. The logic is, of course, no. The bill is called "On the protection of the interests of the population", but these companies do not sell joint venture gas for the population, it is only industrial consumers ", - stressed Chornovol.

"This is the state of the gas wells, and profits go into private pockets just to political corruption. It's not even lobbying. In this case, it is a crime - to propose the adoption of such laws, "- she added.

According to Tatyana Chornovol, a government initiative to increase to 70% of the rent for natural gas for six months already given government revenues of nearly $ 1 billion 300 million UAH, and the same is expected to receive before the end of the year.

"It's too expensive for the budget if it is adopted by the lobbying law, and will be removed if the 70% of the rent for the joint venture companies," - she summed up. In Russian

Without air offensive, that is direct, undisguised intervention of regular troops in Donbass in Russian it is unlikely that it will turn out.

Such an opinion in an interview with "apostrophe" expressed the Russian political strategist and military expert Pavel Felgenhauer.

"It is clear that in July-August - the best months to carry out large-scale offensive operations. In principle, now everything is ready. I do not have anything to pull. In September, of course, you can also fight, but time is short and you need to turn off. So yes now the probability of some great campaign of offensive operations is very high, "- said the expert.

Also, he said, Russia for a possible invasion is preparing much is not necessary. After all, on the border with Ukraine for a long time are concentrated enormous power, but probably Russian-terrorist troops confined to local military operations in the area of ​​the ATO.

"Because if there is something big, you have to use very different means. Without air offensive, that is direct, undisguised intervention of Russian troops, it is unlikely that it will turn out. And if we continue to pretend that this is some kind of" militias "that the miners are fighting and tractor drivers, the circuit can be relatively small in the distance, but quite stubborn battles near Happiness, Avdeevka, Marinka, and so on," - said Felgenhauer.

Many Donetsk residents claim that they never bothered the Ukrainian language, and it did not matter what language written signs or street signs. Retired Ilya Karsun said that in Donetsk no one ever forced anyone to speak only on the "Reigning MTIE." "I remember in the early 90's, when the independence and all that, too, has been a surge of nationalism in the good sense and patriotism - all went yellow-blue ribbons, brought embroidery from Western Ukraine, the girls went with a bandage under her hair, embroidered national patterns - this more Ruslana wore all - shared memories Ilya Fedorovich. - Ukrainian language became fashionable, trendy singers singing on it.

[What a naive idiot]
Moldovan edition MoldSreet last week published a sensational story, which warns Ukraine. According to sources, the media, in the near term, Odessa region, which has recently led Mikhail Saakashvili may be subject to the energy challenge. Such a conclusion is made ​​on the basis of journalists last action of the local power company, have not received adequate publicity.

"The silence of the authorities in Chisinau on the occasion of a possible reduction from July 15 to 40% of electricity supply has a simple explanation. This whole scandal can be coordinated political and economic groups in Chisinau, Moscow and Tiraspol. At least from reliable sources in the Moldovan government structures it became known that the risk of reducing the supply will only increase. However, the main victim of these actions do not favor Chisinau and Odessa and its new governor, Mikhail Saakashvili, "- says the material MoldSreet.

The technical relationship Ukrainian and Moldovan power engineers have one significant caveat: as Ukrainian and Moldovan energy system built and developed in the framework of the energy system of the USSR, it turned out that the south of the Odessa region receives electricity through Moldova. "There's a very powerful substation, dropping back on high-voltage lines high voltage, after the treatment, he was on the station. I think that now there is a problem with one of the substations of the Moldovan Power Station, which is almost completely supplies to Moldova and Odessa "- explains the situation to a leading expert energy programs Razumkov Center Sergey Dyachenko. - But Odessa region energy deficiency. What is produced in the region is not enough for consumption. Especially, now the holiday season, and there is a full house. "

Former Energy Minister Ivan Plachkov comments in "Commander in Chief" has confirmed that the Odessa region provides only one line of Ukrainian, all the rest - Moldovan. "We in the Odessa region are not very powerful line passes, only 110 volts, all the other lines go through the territory of Moldova, and it was even built in the Soviet Union" - confirmed the ex-minister.

"In the event of significant reductions in electricity supply, Moldova, Ukraine will take the necessary energy. Meanwhile more than 20 high-voltage power lines connect our (Moldovan - "Commander in Chief") energy system of Ukraine, as a result in the case of a power failure, will suffer Odessa "- make a similar conclusion senior source in Chisinau.

Deputy Minister of Economy of Moldova Valeriu Triboi confirmed in parliament that the risk of disconnection of electricity to consumers in Moldova is minimal. The deputy minister assured that Moldova has signed a contract with the Ukrainian company "Energy", which includes "the ability to balance the energy system in the event of imbalances in the national energy system." That is, if any problems arose with the production at the Moldovan hydroelectric power station, and apparently, the way it is, Ukraine will supply electricity to Moldova, otherwise it will automatically use the one that comes to transit for the needs of Odesa region. The expert Razumkov Center notes that similar problems have occurred in the energy relations between the two countries. "When Moldova's problems begin, she began to" eat "the energy that comes to Odessa, Ukraine", - explains Dyachenko.

But there is another more dangerous scenario for Ukraine. Moldovan GRES, located in Transdniestria, part of the Russian "Inter RAO UES" and anyone can agree on imports of Romanian electricity to Moldova, bypassing Ukraine. "They (the Moldovan hydroelectric power station - "Commander in Chief") simply disconnected from the Ukraine. And in Odessa, no own generation and the entire south of the country remains without power. Once planned to build a nuclear power plant, but did not work out "- he tells about the possible risks of the former Minister Ivan Plachkov.

JSC \"Moldovan GRES" is located in the unrecognized Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic. This is one of the largest thermal power stations of this kind on the European continent, which provides electricity to Transnistria and Moldova. Moldovan TPP as a generating unit is an integral part of the unified energy system of Moldova and Ukraine. Its outdoor switchgear (OSG 110, 330 and 400 kV) play a crucial role in the transmission of electricity to consumers in Ukraine, Moldova and the possible transfer to the European Union. In 2005 JSC "Moldovan GRES" became part of "Inter RAO UES". wrote:JSC "Moldovan GRES" is located in the unrecognized Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic.

In 2005 JSC "Moldovan GRES" became part of "Inter RAO UES".

Why Ukraine still did not seriously responded to these threats? Ex-Minister of Energy Plachkov this version: "When I was a minister, has repeatedly drawn attention to this project, and now I will put the matter before the governor Saakashvili. We have state approach in the energy sector, there is no unified logic. Who will do it? Our Minister of Energy (Demchishin, "Commander in Chief") - the financier, the banker? The leadership of the state has no understanding of what energy complex of Ukraine and what are the problems. "

The possible development of events, which first warned Ukraine Moldovan journalists, has a clear logic - namely, the creation of social and economic problems for the destabilization of the situation in the border region of Odessa. "This is primarily a business project. The political component is present, of course, but it goes by the wayside, "- said ex-Minister Plachkov.

At the same time, according to the Moldovan media, initiated energoprovokatsii are preparing "some beneficiaries" of contraband from Chisinau, Tiraspol, Moscow and possibly Odessa. Their activities are now suffering from a particularly Saakashvili initiatives to combat corruption and smuggling schemes through the port of Odessa.

The results of the analysis carried out by experts from Ukraine, show that the western border of Ukraine, there are three gray area through which the illegal goods. It is about the Volyn, Transcarpathian and Odessa regions. According to them, the Kiev authorities have tried to impose order, including through the attraction of foreign managers, such as Saakashvili. However, after the armed conflict that broke out in Mukachevo, Ukraine, was among the various groups for control of illicit goods, especially cigarettes and drugs on the western border.

At the same time, Moscow is always ready to encourage such dissatisfaction and energy sabotage to destabilize Odessa and Moldova. "Fortunately," energokommpaniya, which tied electricity and Moldova, and Southern Odesa region, has long passed into the control of the Russian capital. In Russian
