Lavrov, FM of Russia, swears under his breath, during a briefing with his Saudi Arabian counterpart.
I saw this earlier, but could only find a 40 minute long video of it! Now - on the news at 1800 here in Ukraine.
This video - 11 seconds.
You hear him say, "Debilie, Blyad."
Лавров. Дебилы, блядь. 11.08.15
Not easy to translate the second word. The first - inbecile, moron...
The second.. maybe.. bi tch, who re, damn, ..
Here the wiki on Blyad -
Best to do your own translation of this )

Various explanations offered up already by the Russian Foreign Ministry. Lavrov was simply coughing.
And now, they say he was looking at the messages on his mobile... but he was actually playing with his pencil at the time...

"The recent instances of the situation escalation were a deliberate, well-planned operation, both in Shyrokyne and in Starohnativka. All these cases are the examples of how the Russian side, together with Donetsk and Luhansk are trying to derail the implementation of the Minsk agreements, "he said at a joint briefing with Belarusian Foreign Minister Vladimir Makei in Kyiv on Wednesday......
"Plastic pipe with diameter of 100 mm was discovered 25 meters away from the border between Ukrainian village of Pletenivka and Russian village of Shebekino. It was laid at the depth of 1 meter and was designed for pumping fuel by smugglers.

Engineering machinery was used to remove the pipe,” the official reported.

Law enforcement officers are looking for persons who conducted illegal activities.

"Smugglers had already tried to lay the pipeline in this border zone about a year ago," noted the border patrol representative.

"Igor Markov, a former MP, was detained in Italy in San Remo at the request of Ukrainian Bureau of Interpol. GPU prepares extradition," - he wrote.

"Yesterday, the U.S. new package of sanctions against the Russian Federation came into force. Today, Ukraine's Cabinet of Ministers approved the second, extended package of sanctions against the Russian Federation and sends it to the National Security and Defense Council for consideration," the prime minister informed.

He has not specified the exact list of sanctions. In Russian
Prime Minister of Ukraine Arsenii Yatseniuk instructed Vice Prime Minister Valerii Voshchevskyi to figure out how two offshore companies from Cyprus have almost received seven licenses for development of strategic oil and gas deposits on the Black Sea shelf adjacent to Odesa region.

The prime minister said at the Cabinet meeting, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrainska Pravda.

Yatseniuk said he had got information that two offshore companies together with Nadra Ukrainy NJSC tried to acquire seven licenses for development of the Northwest oil and gas bearing Black Sea shelf under dubious circumstances. The prime minister noted that the government prevented issuing these licenses at the final stage.

"These licenses were tried to be obtained through a well thought-out scheme. We have gaps in the law allowing bypassing auctions in obtaining these licenses and issuing the ones to companies which have the state share. For example, a 25 percent share, as it was in this scheme," the prime minister said.

He instructed Voshchevskyi to carry out corresponding investigations into State Geological and Mineral Resources Survey (Derzhheonadra) of Ukraine and the Ministry of Environment.

"I am asking you and NAUCS (National Agency of Ukraine on Civil Service - Ed.) to initiate official investigation into Derzhheonadra about arrangement of these licenses: whether they have been issued and who was submitting the relevant documents. And also initiate official investigation into the Ecology Ministry to find out who exactly of its former or current officials has made the decision to create a joint venture and issue seven licenses," Yatseniuk said.

Ukraine must not fall for Russia's provocations to intensify the fighting in Donbas, political analyst Volodymyr Fesenko told Kanal 24 Aug. 13.

"First, Ukraine is provoked to give Russia an excuse to launch a major offensive. Recall how Hitler provoked the Poles.

Second, let's do not forget Ilovajsk and Debaltseve encirclements. Ilovajsk began with the Ukrainian offensive and ended in encirclement. This is Russia's favorite tactics, and it creates the picture of a major military defeat.

The defeat can trigger off a major political crisis, pushing rightist radicals and volunteer battalions to seize power.

The third Maidan revolution is Moscow's dream because it will destroy Ukraine as a state. A military defeat in Donbas will lead to the third revolution. That is why Ukraine must not fall for Russia's provocations, "Volodymyr Fesenko said.

Speaking about the prospects of the investigation, the prosecutor said that the investigation team "is working very hard." "I think that before the end of the year we will be able to disclose new information", - he said.
This article from a week ago, but relevant, regarding the propaganda against Ukraine by Guardian editors, journalists.
And also propaganda against Robert Conquest, who did much to expose the Holodomor - the death of millions - in Ukraine.

August 5, 2015 at 6:48 pm
The death yesterday of Robert Conquest, author of The Great Terror, reminds us of the pathetic attempt by public school Stalinist hack Seumas Milne to challenge Conquest’s facts about the death-toll brought about by Stalinism.
[Milne tried to make out that Stalin killed 5 or 10 times' less people than stated, and so was basically a nice guy]

Walker's boss at the Guardian - Stalin apologist - lover of Russia, the Soviet life....
This is the sort of Russian propaganda that Ukraine is having to deal with in the British press -

The demonisation of Russia risks paving the way for war
Seumas Milne
Captiion with the first photo....]
On the ground, it has meant the rise of Ukrainian fascist militias such as the Azov battalion, now preparing to ‘defend’ Mariupol from its own people.

Nemtsov was a marginal figure...
[well  - forget his murder then... he was "marginal".... ]
Hundreds of US troops are arriving in Ukraine this week to bolster the Kiev regime’s war ...
the western-backed ousting of the elected government, ..

"the elected government"... Milne clearly supports Yanukovich. Did he ever visit Mizhygoriya, or visit the families of the dead protesters at Maidan?
Walker, Moscow correspondent of the Guardian, correspondent for Russiaprofile, now RIA Novosti, pushing - very cleverly - the idea that Ukrainian nationalists were responsible for the holocaust, .. maybe assisted by the nazis....
In his article the "nazi occupation" gets one mention. First line. But then... Walker starts writing...
"Ukrainian nationalists"... lots of mentions....

Shameus Milne, editor of The Guardian, will be happy. He loves and adores Stalin, and his dictator successor, Putin.
Milne wrote an article recently about the "demonisation of Russia". ... Idiot. Simply an idiot.
Putin also will be impressed by Walker's clever propaganda...
All part of Putin's agenda -
to push the idea that Ukraine should not exist as a nation, as supported by Walker, via Milne, in the British Guardian.
last post, for today 12 August, for more.

[Right - as if one or two degrees down from 34.7 in Kiev is going to make a lot of difference... ]

If earlier minute of call to fixed numbers in Ukraine cost 1.8 rubles, now - 17.7.

Analysts attribute the depreciation of the ruble with low oil prices. During today's trading price on the stock exchange ICE Futures for Brent crude with delivery in October 2015 ranged between $ 49 and $ 50 per barrel
"The forest and field near Gostomel that near Kiev, has long been famous for its rich inhabitants. Elite settlements are united in the so-called" Canadian village.

[Result. More expensive food in Russia. Higher inflation. Further isolation from the civilised world]
The revelation is significant as the first from Dutch investigators to link physical evidence with a specific type of missile system, a Buk surface-to-air system.
If confirmed, their discovery could prove embarrassing for Russia, as it would rule out an air-to-air missile strike by a Ukrainian fighter jet as the cause of the disaster, which was the version promulgated by the Russian Defense Ministry soon after the crash.

A week after angering many in Russia by burning illegally imported Western food, authorities have started feeding Dutch flowers to the flames.
Officials say blooms from the Netherlands, which supplies much of Russia's $2.5 billion flower market, pose safety risks because they may be infected....

[Real reason -
The Russians are trying to "influence" the Dutch lead investigation into the shooting down of MH17.
But I hope the Dutch have high moral standards.
Effect. More expensive flowers in Russia. Especially for September 1, the start of the school year. Higher inflation again for Russia. ]
