Ukraine crisis. News in Brief. Saturday 25 July [Ukrainian sources]

Post by Nelson on Sat Jul 25, 2015 1:22 am

SATURDAY

Please scroll down to view news items added during the course of the day

News -
Reading that Putin's army has stepped up attacks again. Over 70 incidents yesterday.
His terrorists tend to act during the night. Presumably the osce are less able to verify things then.
Update - now reading that 3 soldiers died in a road accident, and 4 injured.
In battle, 1 injured.

Weather -
Toasty indeed. Some places will hit the mid 30s today. Warmer than Miami or Saigon.
And yes, many people there still call it Saigon. Names of bars, T-shirts, and so on.
Miami and HCM probably 32 today. Kiev. 35 minimum. (Around 100). Toasty...

Returning ATO soldiers -
I had a chat with a few yesterday. Demobilisation for many. One theme -
they said things in the Donetsk area were very bad for both the civilians - in the occupied territories - and also for some of the terrorists.
Obviously civilians cross over the "border" to visit relatives, or to collect pensions and get food, where they can.
The people aren't getting paid. No salaries, no pensions. Their money seems to get channeled to Zacharchenko, they said.
And he pays who he likes.
And they have little food. Children often go to the terrorists for food. That is Donetsk today.
It seems hard to believe. I have visited Donetsk a few times. But.. it is a different world now, apparently. Putin's world.
They also said, from sources, that things are very bad in Crimea.
People were happy to get 100 uah to chant "Rasseeya"... but now  - they want to be back in Ukraine.
But don't expect the French MPs to say this. Their visit to Crimea was a big big item on Ukrainian news.
The French are now absolute scum, just like the Greeks - remember PM Tsipras went to Moscow to kiss Putin's butt.

The UN Security Council will vote July 29 on the establishment of the Tribunal on the MH17 (Deutsche Welle)

[Expect Putin to block the Tribunal. And then for those interested in justice to set up a separate Tribunal - maybe in Holland.
Putin, Lavrov, Cherkin, know Russia shot down the plane. They know the truth. And they want to delay that truth for as long as possible.
Probably the same goes for that mad British MP who wants to kiss Putin's butt. Kawczynski ]

Russia Proposes Alternative UN Resolution to MH17 — on Ukraine
http://www.themoscowtimes.com/news/article/russia-proposes-alternative-un-resolution-to-mh17--on-ukraine/526148.html
... a Moscow official has called for the council to establish another international tribunal — to prosecute Ukrainian officials....
Russia — which holds veto power as a permanent member of the Security Council — went along with the council's resolution in 1993 establishing the tribunal on former Yugoslavia, and another in 1994 to establish the tribunal on Rwanda.
But Russia has strongly opposed establishing an international tribunal on the MH17 downing, citing an array of reasons that varied from calling the plan premature to Churkin's argument that it went against the UN Charter.

Le voyage "honteux" de dix parlementaires français en Crimée
The  "shameful" trip of ten French MPs to Crimea

http://www.lexpress.fr/actualite/politique/assemblees/le-voyage-honteux-de-dix-parlementaires-francais-en-crimee_1701637.html

Ten [French] deputies and senators, mostly from the right, are currently in the Crimea, a Ukrainian territory claimed by Russia. "A shame for the French Parliament" denounces Bruno Le Roux, himself placed on a blacklist by Putin.
The journey of ten French parliamentarians, mainly group Republicans in Crimea is "a disgrace to the French parliament," Friday denounced Bruno Le Roux, president of the Socialist group in the National Assembly.
"It's a shame. A shame that the ten parliamentarians traveling to Crimea without having anything to do with the Ukrainian authorities. It is a tender and a disgrace to the French parliament," said on France Info Bruno Le Roux, which is among 89 European personalities which Russia decided to ban access to its territory in response to European sanctions.
..."I regret that those parliamentarians funded by a Russian association are made in Crimea. I note that there is no socialist deputy in the delegation and I am happy", also said Bruno Le Roux, deputy Seine -Saint Denis.

It has to be about money. Just like that idiotic British MP Kawczynski, wanting to kiss Putin's butt in return for a few milliion pound contracts for his conservative party mega-donor billionaire buddy Lord Moneybags of JCB. French business interests - more important than morals. ]

Pentagon to provide weapons to Ukraine which can change course of war in Donbas

Post by Admin on Sat Jul 25, 2015 10:03 am

The Pentagon has plans to give Ukraine an early warning radar to deal with rebels’ artillery fire, The Wall Street Journal says, citing a White House source.

The Obama administration has not yet given a green light to this initiative. However, radars do not belong to lethal weapons, and therefore the Pentagon’s proposal won’t make it necessary for the White House to reconsider its position.

Earlier, the United States provided 20 radars which can track the trajectories of shells fired from 10 km away. Ten more are slated to come to Ukraine by the year end.

In addition, the United States supply first-aid kits, nigh visors and bullet-proof jackets.

This time, the Pentagon proposes to transfer to Ukraine powerful AN/TPQ-36 radars that can track enemy artillery fire at distances between 24 and 50 km.

The minister did not agree with those who believe that their vote for the project to send the Basic Law to the Constitutional Court of the Verkhovna Rada passed the Donbass.

"Donbass not passed by one percent. The logic of what has been agreed, means that after the normal, free and fair elections in the Donbass can be used especially local government. If the choice is not, or if the elections take place in such a way that they will not be with any political or legal point of view, neither Ukraine nor the international community, there are no further steps to resolve the situation will not "- Klimkin said.

According to him, it is his vision of the Minsk process is now speculating Russia. "They say they must first be applied to the following features (Minsk agreements), such as an amnesty. And only then, do not know how, without the OSCE elections should be held", - said the head of the Foreign Ministry.

Putin said Ukraine will collapse. In the Russian Federation explained how there was a project "New Russia"

Post by Admin on Sat Jul 25, 2015 5:32 pm

Was unsuccessful project "New Russia" , involving the seizure of Russian east and south of Ukraine, has been associated with Vladimir Putin voiced the idea that Ukraine will fall apart into two parts. At the same time, the strategic goal of the Kremlin - not a "New Russia", and the new division of the world. In an interview with "apostrophe" said Russian military expert Pavel Felgenhauer.

About "New Russia":

"Putin has received various proposals. He argued that Ukraine will fall apart into two halves. And if one half wants" to go to the West ", the other exactly the rebel and wants" to go to the East. "The dividing line was to be held somewhere on the Dnieper. And on one of those halves can build a "New Russia".

The children were given a try. Something they did not really work out. But the goal, in fact, not the case. Not to build a separate "New Russia". The aim was to prevent the Western influence in Ukraine. Any idea that the West can "give" the western part of Ukraine. In Moscow it is circulated for a long time, and I have heard this many times. It is the idea that "we do not need Western Ukraine." What are they - not Russian and wrong. "Let the West takes them."

On the strategic plans of Putin:

"The idea is a" new Yalta "Yalta-2 (the first Yalta conference took place in 1945 and was devoted to the structure of the world after the Second World War -" apostrophe "). And as Putin recently changed its position and declared the Molotov helpful Ribbentrop Pact (signed by the USSR and Nazi Germany in 1939 - "apostrophe"), it can be said that the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact is 2. That is, in Moscow would very much like the West to sit down, put on a map and start to share".

Wishful thinking, because the West isn't going to sit down with you and you're not going to get what you want. All will you continue to get is destruction of your own economy and sooner or later your own people will put you down.
