Reading already this morning of Putin shelling Ukraine 80 times yesterday.
He likes one or more deaths every day.
UN - I think - later today - probably when Ukraine is asleep - the UN will vote on establishing a Tribunal for those responsible for shooting down MH17.
In other words, for Girkin and ultimately Putin.
Putin - Russia - the terrorists will undoubtedly veto this. They do not want to put themselves in jail.
But it will be clear to the whole world then that Russia is guilty of this atrocity.

Weather -
Pleasant. 16 at 0630, and now at 0800 already 19. Expect a high in the mid-20s. Little chance of rain, but rain fell yesterday. Quite a bit. A lot in the morning, and a little also in the evening.

Footie -
Shakhtar played in Turkey last night. I watched the first half. Some good football.
Shaktar should have scored twice but didn't. Qualifying match for the European Champions League.
Game finished 0-0. Pity Shakhtar did not get an away goal. That helps.

This was said lawmaker Irina Friz.

"For the second time Russia conducts military exercises aimed at improving the coherence of units in terms of conducting combined arms offensive and defensive," - she said.

Of particular concern is the fact of increasing the number of Russian groups in Transnistria by Transnistrian residents who hold Russian passports. Thus the Kremlin once again uses a de facto paramilitary units, thereby increasing the Russian contingent of 25-30 thousand men at least, for the preparation of a military aggression on the south-west of Ukraine.

"Ukraine has always advocated a peaceful solution to the Transnistrian issue in the negotiations ... Today the solution depends on a clear position of Moldova", - said Freese. In Russian

However, after a while, I started fly "otvetka" that she did not like it much." In Russian

Look at her Facebook comments above, then look below. Totally ignoring what she initially commented on from the field.

Seems she's dug herself a big hole and now she's trying to get out, totally avoiding what she initially posted on Facebook. Look at the attitude she had in the above Facebook comments, then look at the attitude on the Twitter tweets above.

Seems her bosses might've brought this to her attention, or else she wouldn't be trying to justify her actions. Too late now.

"It [the adoption of the resolution] would be a disaster for Russia, because it would mean recognition of responsibility," Poroshenko said.

According to him, in this situation the global security system, which existed until now, demonstrates the failure and can no longer operate in the agreed format.

In addition, Poroshenko called Moscow's threats to ban this resolution as "medieval approach".
Poroshenko also said that Ukraine appreciated a strong support of the people of the United States, regardless of their political views.

"We're looking for just 1,240 Javelin missiles, and this is absolutely fair," he said.

The number of 1,240 has special significance for Poroshenko, as it is the number of nuclear warheads that Ukraine gave up under the 1994 Budapest Memorandum.

"Ukraine voluntarily gave up its nuclear arsenal, and in exchange for that the United States of America and Great Britain ... promised to guarantee our sovereignty and territorial integrity," the President said.

Poroshenko stressed that Ukraine is not "demanding that British, American or French soldiers come here and fight for us."

"We are doing this ourselves, paying the most difficult price - the lives of my soldiers. We need just solidarity," Poroshenko said.
