FRIDAY

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

News -
The main lead item on the tv news last night was, of course, the Russian veto at the UN.
Many channels carried a summary of the attack on MH17, showing the Russian buk travelling to Donetsk, and then back into Russia.
Everybody knows what happened.
Reading of 105 attacks by Putin yesterday. A high figure. It hasn't been above 100 for a long time.
ATO Update - sadly 2 dead, 5 injured yesterday.
I heard yesterday from a friend who returned from Volnavacha, near the frontline. In his opiniion the terrorists are getting fed up, bored.
And they are beginning to settle down in their new locations. Controlling the territory as the new warlords.  
A stupid British journalist called Kitty Logan also has made the news in several papers here. She is a frequent visitor to the Donbass, and on her last visit asked the Russians to fire at the Ukrainians for some action. She has blood on her hands. She should be charged with war crimes.
Nothing from Sky News on this. All they care about is money and a good story. Human life - nothing to scumballs like Logan.
Logan blocked people writing about this on twitter. Obviously she doesn't like news about herself, but is happy to blow up a few people for a good news story and a nice bonus from her boss.

Weather -
Pleasant. 16 now at 0800. High in the mid-20s. 70s. Blue sky, sunshine. Good weather to help the apples and pears to ripen after the rain of the past few days.

Footie -
Mixed results from the two teams involved in the Europa league last night.
MSK Zilina 2-0 Vorskla Poltava Full time
Sporting de Charleroi 0-2 Zorya Luhansk Full time
The Charleroi game was live on the "Futbol 1 kanal" but I went to sleep.
Charleroi actually has an airport. Not bad if you feel like visiting Waterloo - the battle site.
It is on the train line from Charleroi to Brussels, if I recall correctly.

Russian debtors despair as boom turns to bust
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-33717488
According to the Russian United Credit Bureau (UCB), 40 million Russians have loans or mortgages.
By June, 12.5m of those loans had not been paid for at least a month, and in another 8m cases the arrears stretched back over three months.


[And I bet that - if the Russia media did a poll - Putin would be more popular than ever ever!! ]

Also, experts NSDC fixed concentration of military forces of the enemy in dangerous directions.

Putin talks about his "Ukrainian brothers" but - if this war ever stops - I do not see Ukraine and Russia being friends at all.
I think it will be more like Poland and Russia today.
The Poles hate the Russians, and the Russians hate the Poles.
That will be Putin's legacy on eastern Europe - a culture of hate - united hate towards Russia, completely manufactured by Putin.

What will keep this mad dictator - imperialist - in check? The Americans? The Europeans? No.. One thing only -
The financial capability to develop and produce more and more arms, and armies of various types.
This financial capability is controlled in the large part by the oil price. And that is falling.

SBU detained DNR militants who had been instructed to carry out attacks in the Odessa region (Vіkna)

[Very little information.
Obviously Odessa was one of Putin's prime targets a year or so ago. Quite a lot of ethnic Russians in that area.
But they don't seem to want Putin's occupying forces, having seen what life is now like in the Donbass.
So Putin has to export his terrorists now, typically.]

"We come to the demographic pit. We'll have to hire retirees" (Gazeta.ua)
http://gazeta.ua/articles/money-newspaper/_mi-pidhodimo-do-demografichnoyi-yami-dovedetsya-brati-na-robotu-pensioneriv/639974
The labor market situation has improved, vacancies increased. Enterprises looking to survive the crisis, open up new areas. Intensified and unemployed. Many are looking for work in several professions at once. For example, once a person worked secretary, assistant accountant, accountant then. Submit resume once three vacancies - says Tatiana Pashkina, 42, an expert job portal rabota.ua.
[Interesting. But I'm not sure whether to believe this.
Where I am the young are struggling to find work. And salaries have not kept pace with the increase in the price of goods.
It's perhaps a bit of PR for her website. Rather like a Kiev Real Estate agent saying that prices are rising - when they are really falling. ]

Klimkin announced a re-vote on the UN Security Council MN17 (LIGABusinessInform)
http://news.liga.net/news/politics/6302611-klimkin_anonsiroval_povtornoe_golosovanie_sb_oon_po_mn17.htm
A new attempt to get the UN Security Council decision on the establishment of the tribunal crash of Boeing-777 will be implemented in the Donbas two months. In an interview with Associated Press, he said the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin, reports Ukrinform.
According Klimkin, the main argument of Russia that decided to veto UN Security Council resolution on the establishment of the tribunal was that this step was premature and untimely. Moscow indicated that the results of the investigation will be ready no earlier than October.


[A good idea, I think.
Putin said that the Tribunal was "premature". OK. Have another vote after the report on MH17 is published.
Will he then argue again it is premature? Will Putin veto it again? A good move to further expose the guilty party.]
