Ukraine crisis. News in Brief. Thursday 30 July [Ukrainian sources]

Post by Nelson on Thu Jul 30, 2015 1:11 am

THURSDAY

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

News -
Russia vetoed the UN resolution to establish a tribunal to prosecute those responsible for shooting down MH17.



That really removes any doubt anybody had that Russia is ultimately responsible for this atrocity.
Also reading about a Sky news journalist - Kitty Logan - asking the Russians to shoot at the Ukrainians. For a story. Disgusting.
ATO - I was unable to post yesterday evening. But 28 July 0 dead, 2 soldiers injured.
ATO update, for today - Saying that 0 dead, 4 injured yesterday.

Weather -
Pleasant at the moment. 16 at 0800. High in the 20s. Comfortable. May be a little warmer next week. But hopefully not beyond 30C. 80s.

Shelling -
I can hear quite a lot of shelling where I am. I've got used to the sound now. Serious "booms".
It is undoubtedly Ukrainian troops practicing. There is a very large military base not too far from where I am.
Hopefully they won't send a shell off in the wrong direction!
It would seem to show that Ukraine is expecting further military attacks from Putin's forces in the occupied territories.

MH17: Julie Bishop says Russian veto of proposed UN-backed tribunal to prosecute suspects 'compounds atrocity'
http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-07-30/russia-vetoes-proposal-for-un-backed-tribunal-over-mh17/6658620
Only one hand was raised in opposition, but a veto should never be allowed to deny justice.
"The recital of discredited contentions and the anticipated excuses and obfuscation by the Russian Federation should be treated with the utmost disdain."


MH17 UN criminal tribunal vetoed by Russia in blow to Australia

[Video of the Australian response at the link. Julie Bishop does not mince her words. And names Russia directly.
Australians are straight talking. No diplomatic garbage here.
Found a video - Look at her eyes when she says, "The veto only compounds the atrocity" I assume she is looking straight at terrorist support, Cherkin, the Russian delegate.]

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said:
"There can be no reason to oppose this [draft resolution] unless you are a perpetrator yourself."

Russia tries to halt rouble slide as economic crisis returns to haunt Vladimir Putin [in english]
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/currency/11771000/Russia-tries-to-halt-rouble-slide-as-economic-crisis-returns-to-haunt-Vladimir-Putin.html
Russia’s central bank halted daily purchases of foreign currency on Wednesday in an effort to stop a week-long slide of the rouble that has raised fears of a second currency collapse in a year.
The decision came after the rouble hit 60 to the dollar on Tuesday, following five days of losses that threatened to undo months of recovery since an unprecedented fall over the winter.

Independent media battle on in Putin's Russia [in English]
http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/07/30/us-ukraine-crisis-russia-media-insight-idUSKCN0Q40HI20150730
Putin has little less than a media army at his disposal. As in Soviet days, some news outlets have a direct phone line to the Kremlin, media sources say, and top editors take part in regular meetings with Kremlin officials to discuss content.
Dmitry Muratov, editor of the investigative newspaper Novaya Gazeta, said most Russian media have simply become "instruments of mass propaganda and manipulation".

[Quite a long article.]

How We Know Russia Shot Down MH17 [in English]
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/07/17/how-we-know-russia-shot-down-mh17.html?via=desktop&source=twitter
But Vzglyad.ru added another important detail:
“Ukrainian military claim that the losses were caused by actions by Russia. The militia refuted this information, correcting that they had shot down the plane from a ZRK ‘9K37M1’ (better known as a Buk).”
In Putin.War, Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov’s posthumously published report on Moscow’s military involvement in Ukraine, he points out that Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations, Vitaly Churkin, tried to excuse the fact that the separatists claimed responsibility for the attack thus:
“People from the east [of Ukraine] said that they had shot down a military plane. If they believed that they had shot down a military plane, it was confusion. If it was confusion, then it was not an act of terrorism.” In other words, a high-ranking Russian diplomat was trying to account for why separatists shot down MH17

[Quite long, but a good read. Especially about Girkin and the initial twiiter posts.
Also a good timeline of events, leading to the Russian media quickly posting news about shooting down an Antonov. - which turned out to be mh17.
Article a couple of weeks' old. But I missed it earlier.]

More reaction in the Australian press

Russia 'compounds atrocity' with Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 veto
http://www.smh.com.au/federal-politics/political-news/russia-compounds-atrocity-with-malaysia-airlines-flight-17-veto-20150730-gio3mw.html
Prime Minister Tony Abbott has described as "outrageous" Russia's veto of a United Nations resolution to investigate the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.
Russia vetoed the resolution on Thursday, despite insisting it wanted a "rapid determination of guilt", ratcheting up tensions over the disaster in eastern Ukraine last year which claimed 298 lives.
​"Its actions reinforce concerns Russia is protecting the perpetrators and continuing to assault the sovereignty of Ukraine," Mr Abbott said.


===

By way of comparison, I looked at the Russian press. Very little if anything about Russia blocking the Tribunal.
You have to look really hard to find anything. Top Gear reforming on Amazon - yes. Russia's UN veto. And reaction of the world - nothing.
Hear no evil. See no evil. Speak no evil.

Russia waiting for the problem to be felt and the terrorists in the Donbas - study

Post by Admin on Thu Jul 30, 2015 11:20 pm

Russia will soon face serious problems because of the war in the Donets Basin and the fall in oil prices, which affect, in particular, armed terrorists feykovye "republics" in the East of Ukraine.

This is stated in the 19th edition prepared by experts of the International Centre for Policy Studies research publication "The foreign accents", the text of which is at the disposal "Apostrophe".

As noted in the study, falling oil prices raise the cost of Russian aggression against Ukraine and weaken the Russian economy. Reducing the amount of oil revenues affect the socio-economic situation of Russian citizens and the logistical and military support of insurgents "DNR" and "LC".

"In strategic terms, Moscow has a number of internal calls - from the economy to the non-upgraded authoritarian political system - that tactical diplomatic victories (in particular, the special status of Donbass - Ed.) Is not in any way do not compensate them," - ICPS analysts wrote.
However, in their opinion, we can hardly expect the collapse of the Russian Federation in the near future.

"The question of constitution of the current Russian regime is quite controversial - even the Russian Federation in the current situation can endure low oil prices a year or more. Therefore, the Russian-American understanding (in particular, the Donbas, - Ed.) Should be characterized not as the final defeat of Ukraine as well as a signal of falsehood based on external assistance, with full domestic inaction and maintaining old practices of corruption, weakness of the state inside and outside, "- added the study's authors.
