News -
Interesting that Ukraine really like foreign reports here.
One shown on the tv news last night - not sure where it was from, to be honest.
But showing Russian equipment close to the border on a train, and also a terrorist training camp set up by Putin.
Rada - they talked all day, and collected their salaries. But I don't think they actually did anything at all useful.
They should send all the Deputies to Shirokino, and then they might act with a bit more urgency.
Instead all they seem to care about now is popularlity - particularly Liashko and Tymoshenko.

Update. A good number of reports of serious fighting right along the front line. Putin possibly trying to break through. started at 4am this morning. Reports of heavy casualties.
Area of Maryinka and elsewhere.

Weather -
I went out this morning, and already very hot and humid. Will get to 30C today, maybe near 90F, for sure. Toasty, for Ukraine.

British expert: the West should arm itself against Russia

Western countries should immediately increase the effectiveness of its non-nuclear weapons to be able to confront the aggressive policies of Russian President Vladimir Putin. To such conclusion experts of the Royal Institute of International Affairs in London, reports BBC BBC .

In a prepared their report noted that any violation of the order established after the collapse of the Soviet Union, could endanger the existence of the EU and NATO. Thus at the moment, the document says, Europe can not cope with the task of preserving this structure.

In particular, according to the report, the European states have underestimated the danger coming in recent years from Russia, and also failed to adequately respond to Russian aggression towards Ukraine and Kiev have effective help in this situation.

Experts do not exclude that the result of Ukrainian conflict has lead to a direct confrontation of Russia and European countries.

At the same time, the authors of the document, it is impossible to guarantee that in the event of a significant escalation of the conflict, Russia will not use tactical nuclear weapons, which it has threatened since the Cold War. The Institute believes that Putin is ready to take this step, but Western leaders simply can not believe it.

According to experts, large-scale rearmament program will demonstrate Russia that Europe is ready, if necessary, to a limited military action. This step is necessary because Putin has already shown that he is ready to take advantage of weakness of Western leaders.

The conflict in Ukraine continues from last spring. Formally, neither Russia nor the West are not parties to it. However, Russia has actually separatist-controlled territory in eastern Donbass political support, while the Western countries support the authorities of Ukraine.

Western countries, international experts and journalists, including Russian, has repeatedly accused Moscow and direct intervention in the armed conflict, but Russian officials reject these allegations. In Russian

History Hijacked: Four Facts Recast By The Kremlin

A new Russian film on the 1968 events in Czechoslovakia has revived accusations that the Kremlin is twisting historical facts to forge a new ideology and justify some of its most controversial actions and policies.

Here is a look at some remarkable recent Russian treatments of history:

1968 Soviet-Led Invasion Of Czechoslovakia

A Russian film glorifying the Soviet-led invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968 has sparked fury among Czechs and Slovaks.

Warsaw Pact: The Declassified Pages, which aired on state-run Russian television on May 23, justifies the armed crackdown on the democratic "Prague Spring" movement and claims Warsaw Pact troops were sent into Czechoslovakia to protect its citizens from a purported NATO threat.

Czech Foreign Minister Lubomir Zaoralek accused Russia of "grossly distorting" history and summoned the Russian ambassador in protest. Czech President Milos Zeman, who is seen as relatively Kremlin-friendly, dismissed the film as "Russian propaganda lies," according to his spokesman.

The Slovak Foreign Ministry accused Russia of "trying to rewrite history and falsify historical truths about this dark chapter of our history."
