Ukraine crisis. News in Brief. Monday 03 August [Ukrainian sources]

Post by Nelson on Sun Aug 02, 2015 11:43 pm

MONDAY

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

News -
The bombardment by Putin continues.
Update - reading now that the Russians violated the ceasefire 99 times yesterday.
Update at noon - reading 4 soldiers killed, 15 wounded. Sad.
I understand the marines who replaced Azov around Mariupol have suffered their first casualties - 2 injured yesterday.
Oil price continues to fall. This restricts Putin's military build up. 46.7 / 51.7 dollars for WT / Brent.

Scumball journalist Kitty Logan -
banned from Ukraine, by SBU, I understand.. She called on the terrorists to shell Ukrainians for some nice "pictures".
I would charge her with murder and war crimes. Sky News. No morals. No concern for human life. Blood on their hands.

Weather -
A beautiful morning. Blue sky, sunshine. Now 17C at 0600.
Should get up to 28C or so today. Lower 80s I think. Ok.

Hatred for Russia and Putin -
This grows and grows. All of Putin's own doing.
Idiotic tactics by Putin - alienating Russia, and actually promoting hate towards his own country.
As shown in this grafitti on a fence - a photo I took yesterday -
Смерть Росії. Слава Україні.. Smert Rossiya. Slava Ukraini. Death to Russia, Glory to Ukraine.

Maybe dictator Lukashenko is worried about something similar happening to him - as happened to Yanukovich. ]

In Volyn ATO with the fighters taking bribes for issuing documents for participant status (Magnolia-TV)
http://magnolia-tv.com/text-news/2015-08-03/60292-na-volin-z-b-its-v-ato-brali-khabar-za-oformlennya-dokument-v-shchodo-sta

[You get more money if you have "participant in ATO" status.
Frankly the issuing of false documents for participant status goes on all over Ukraine. I can tell you this for certain.
In Volyn somebody probably had the guts to speak up against it.
Why should somebody who sits in an office, and then goes to the ATO zone for 2 hours, and then goes back to his office for a year get the same pay rise as a soldier based at Pisky for 6 months. It is disgusting. But that is the corruption that exists in the Ukrainian armed forces. And created, of course by the army and the politicians.
Reading this story, it is actually about officials demanding payments for issuing documents.
But more common - and not mentioned is for people who have not been in the ATO zone to pay to get ATO status. Revolting.
But some commanders of bases have done this. I know this for sure. Disgusting.]

[Absolutely correct. The idiotic journalist is called Kitty Logan.
She was calling for the terrorists to shell Ukrainian people. Kill them. Blow them to bits.
An egoist, only concerned with getting some photos for her own report. No thought for human life. A murderer.

Peskov - ... a photo of the official wearing a watch that — according to opposition leader Alexei Navalny — was worth some $620,000.
Navalny claimed in an irate blog post Sunday that it would have been impossible for Peskov to have paid for the watch on his official salary.
....Peskov was quick to defend himself, telling the RBC news agency that the watch had been a wedding gift from his bride, .... But bloggers found photos of him wearing it several months ago in the Instagram account of his daughter Yelizaveta Peskova,

Four killed ahead of new Ukraine peace talks [in English]
https://in.news.yahoo.com/four-killed-ahead-ukraine-peace-100017273.html
The two sides and Russia on Monday launched a fresh round of European-mediated negotiations in the Belarussian capital Minsk that hope to salvage a largely-ignored ceasefire and political reconciliation agreement signed nearly six months ago.
[That might explain the upsurge in violence from Putin. He thinks it will help "negotiations".
Or he will use the failure of negotiations to launch a new offensive. ]

Terrorist told about the horrors of the "LNR": Before my eyes have killed many locals (Charter'97)
http://www.charter97.org/ru/news/2015/8/3/162882/
Participant in gang of "LNR" Marina told Russian media how the militants kill their companions and simply civilians.
Russian edition of "URA.Ru" interviewed participant in gang of "LNR" battalion "Bryanka USSR", named Marina, who told of the atrocities of militants mocked civilians who took captive terrorists from other units for the sake of killing and their money .
According to her, one of the fighters miraculously survived after the commander shot him in the head, and the other, received four bullets, but managed to get out of the grave in which he was buried. Now the surviving militants are in Russia and are afraid for their lives, as the commander promises to kill them.
According to Marina, three or four battalion commanders "Bryanka Soviet Union" took away the money, which was intended to ordinary fighters, and took away the money that earns division, gained by dismantling factories and mines for scrap. According to her, with the money, "the commander buys land in Sevastopol, Simferopol, Rostov.
...She also reported that the majority of prisoners "were killed, slaughtered, raped, abused, shot, ...." Only for those for whom family paid money, were released unharmed, "slapped on the back with a shovel."

Here is the original article from the Russian source. Long long interview.
Barbaric. Animals. No semblance of civilisation, no thought for human life. Kitty Logan but with a kalishnikov.
Why do they put this in the Russian press? Maybe the next step is to say that control under Russia is better... ?

===========

"Shot, buried, raped, tortured"
http://ura.ru/articles/1036265474
...Everyone stopped and forced to dig their own graves and buried. Bes shot, Dima, Kohl Auburn. In Vadik it was made five shots, he fell and wheezed. These say: "Yes, he is alive!" And fired again, controlling, in the neck. And buried. But since he has strong lungs, he was able to somehow get out of the grave, crawled to the road, some grandfather called him an ambulance. Under an assumed name, he spent 22 days in the Luhansk regional hospital in a coma, when he came to himself - did not even know who to call from friends that the battalion did not know that he survived. Friends and volunteers took him to Rostov, there also was operated on, he now lives, it is in Russia.

In Kharkiv quite a bust up between Euromaidan supporters and those of the Opposition party.
Dobkin - Kharkiv mafia - involved also. But nothing too serious that I noted.

The oil price really falling today. Now below 50 dollars for Brent.
www.bloomberg.com/energy/

Crude Oil & Natural Gas
INDEX UNITS PRICE CHANGE %CHANGE CONTRACT TIME ET 2 DAY
WTI Crude Oil (Nymex)
USD/bbl. 45.31 -1.81 -3.84% SEP 15 13:39:51
Brent Crude (ICE)
USD/bbl. 49.74 -2.47 -4.73% SEP 15 13:40:08
=====

I can't quite remember how low it fell in March. I think near 43 for WTI.
But it might go to a record low for the past 3 or 4 years at this rate...
Good news for Ukraine, and the inflation rate.
Bad news for Putin and his military budget.

An expert from the US, we learned more Ukrainians than taught them

Post by Admin on Mon Aug 03, 2015 11:06 pm

US military experts, to train our soldiers on the Yavoriv training ground near Lviv, says Ukrainian soldiers among the best in the world. In an interview with "TSN" said an American military expert Phillip Karber.

"We really wanted to show first and teach them what we know. But then a strange thing: we have learned more Ukrainians than taught them. They are experienced, they experienced such attacks, to which we did not get in life, "- he said.

Carbury admitted that he was impressed with how the Ukrainians are fighting against militants in the Donbas and Russian soldiers, equipped with the latest military equipment.

"I met a lot of Ukrainian commanders - there, at the front, and that's what I can say is they're cool. They are different from us, all the same, but I'm very impressed with them. It was, and Marines and other troops, and I can say they - some of the best in the world ", - he added.
