U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will hold talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Qatar to discuss Iran, Syria, and the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.

The meeting will take place on the sidelines of Kerry's discussions with Gulf Arab foreign ministers on August 2-3, in which he will try to ease Arab concerns about the nuclear deal agreed between world powers and Iran in July.

Kerry arrived in Cairo on August 1 for the first leg of his Middle East tour to discuss the resumption of a U.S.-Egypt strategic dialogue that was suspended in 2009 amid political unrest in Egypt.

In case of further escalation of elections in Donbass impossible - Poroshenko (
"This issue - a joint decision Kyiv military and civil administration. If it is possible to ensure the free will of citizens, my position - the election will be. If we see escalation of hostilities as the last two days, then physically elections can not be conducted.
I think Poro realises now, he can wait.
Russia is in decline, and Putin will have more and more problems. The Russian people will begin to look away from the Shaun Walker propaganda, and think more about their own problems at home, rather than the "fascists" in Ukraine, or Europe, or USA.
Lies can only work for a certain period of time. ]

The current state of the oil market, from

Crude Oil & Natural Gas
WTI Crude Oil (Nymex)
USD/bbl. 47.12 -1.40 -2.89% SEP 15 17:14:59
Brent Crude (ICE)
USD/bbl. 52.21 -1.10 -2.06% SEP 15 17:59:58

Will Brent go below 50? Russian oil is priced slightly below Brent.
Remember that the original Russian budget was based on an oil price of 120.
At 70 they might be ok. But below 60, they are struggling.
Putin probably has one more year before he faces financial meltdown, unless he makes some changes.
Or if the oil price rises. But world markets are very static currenly, China included.
This article in Reuters - English - from january this year. Relevant, as that was last when the price was this low...

Putin's defence fixation deepens Russian budget problems
Budget faces $46 billion shortfall at $50 oil price...
"For Putin the priority is the army, the secret service and the bureaucracy. And also financing pensioners, the main supporters of the regime," Boris Nemtsov, an opposition leader and former deputy prime minister, wrote on his Facebook page...

Russian Central Bank Cuts Interest Rate But Warns on Economy
Inflation, meanwhile, accelerated to 15.8 percent as of July 27, up from 15.3 percent in June. The bank said that was temporary result of utility tariff increases and inflation would fall to 7 percent in July 2016 and to 4 percent in 2017, meeting the bank's target.
The bank appeared much more worried about economic growth. An unexpectedly severe contraction in domestic demand in the first half of 2015, it said, meant that it may lower its output forecast for a 3.2 percent GDP contraction in 2015.
"The scenario with oil prices remaining below $60 per barrel for a long time is more probable than it was in June," the bank said.

Amazing that inflation is still increasing in Russia.
Normally in the summer goods become much cheaper, particularly food.
But then Putin has cut off all food from abroad. And things will only get worse in the winter.
But I am sure in the Russia press, and the Shaun Walker Kremlin articles Putin is more popular than ever ever...
And if things get even worse for the Russians, then Putin will be even more popular. - in the press.
In most countries, conditions for a revolution. But the Russians are too scared to do anything.
And the propaganda has brainwashed a good half of the population.
