“The situation is very tense. There is a concentration of Russian-terrorist forces very close to the contact line.

Paul Roderick Gregory is a noted professor of economics who makes regular contributions to Forbes on domestic and world economics from a free-market perspective

By Paul Roderick Gregory* for Forbes:

The Western media has decided to carry the story of a dirty bomb purportedly being assembled in Donetsk by rebel forces with the aid of Russian nuclear scientists. The accounts in The Times of London, Newsweek and Fox News cite Ukrainian intelligence sources, being careful to note that the Ukrainian intelligence cannot be independently verified. Nevertheless, they find the story of a Donetsk bunker full of radioactive waste and the arrival of nuclear scientists from Russia plausible enough to follow up. Most rebel leaders interviewed denied the story, but some boasted of the prospect of a nuclear weapon at their disposal. Rosatom, Russia’s nuclear energy agency, also denied sending scientists to Donetsk. Tight security prevented reporters from visiting the site of the chemical plant where the radioactive bunker is located.

Russian-backed news outlets decry the unprofessional coverage of Western mainstream media, who they claim employ novice reporters to cover the Ukraine battlefield. This, they say, is a false story not worth reporting.

Kremlin propaganda had already been peddling its own dirty bomb story. Its version accused Ukraine, not the Russian-backed rebels. LiveLeak reported that Ukrainian nationalists were caught trafficking in nuclear materials and radioactive substances with the potential to make a dirty bomb. Fascist Ukrainian organizations, they claim, are behind these nuclear escapades.

The mainstream media missed the signs pointing to a Kremlin false-flag operation aimed at blaming Ukraine for having (and using) a dirty bomb. Ukrainian analysts saw through it right away as another typical Putinesque provocation.................

Before Russia if the Kremlin's foreign policy defeat unfold bleak prospects, until the collapse of the country.

This writes the Russian journalist Alexander centurion in his Facebook
"I understand that today there are two versions of events in Russia. I have to say that, in my view, a full-scale invasion of the Ukraine eliminated.

1. No money for a major war;
2. Time lost - and in terms of propaganda and seasonal reasons.

Now, actually, variants.


They decide to go the distance. Close the borders to ordinary citizens. For its - left "green corridors". Of course, let the West will not be all, but Latin America is also nice. Adopt new laws to toughen mode. Drive people into new "collective and state farms", reviving the Gulag and cancel the moratorium on the death penalty. Spend demonstrative political councils, shoot, expose the "fifth column" and send it to "work for the benefit of society, to cultivate the land, to benefit" and so on. Enter curfews for children (the fight against drug addiction, vagrancy), terrorizing parents. Increase discipline returned article "parasitism".

In short, revived a full set of "scoop" the times of the "Iron Curtain." Only in this way - a whip (alas, - without the stick), they can hold out for another ten years. Probably not more. And they need more? Not sure ...

The second scenario.

At the very top, "ripen" conspiracy. Putin sacrificed. There is a change of power, but the new "democratic government" is unable to keep the situation. The return of the country's legal constitutional field triggers the disintegration of the country. To prevent the spread of nuclear slops around the world, in Russia, introduced a system of "external control". Certain countries take control of the territory of the United Nations entrusted to them. Central Russia, which has no natural resources, is forced to focus on the development of new technologies. Here, people will be needed to form. Urals and Siberia for some time to live at the expense of natural resources. In these areas a long struggle with corruption and "fragments Chekism."

Of course, there are other options, but they are insignificant in terms of the probability of their realization." In Russian

The fact that US and Ukrainian troops learn from each other, are very concerned about Russian President Vladimir Putin.

This is stated in the article Anna Nemcova titled "US Marines in Ukraine frighten Putin", published on the website, reports UNIAN.

Public activists went to court, demanding to invalidate the passport issued by the Russian Federation and to ban their use on the territory of Ukraine, reports "Hvilya" citing the press service of the public organization "E-demokratіya."

The lawsuit was filed after the announcement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania, that it has got to Russian passport with deliberately false information, both from the point of view of international law and from the point of view of the Russian Federation legislation in force at the time of issue.

On the Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs published a photocopy of the passport was issued in 2013 indicated, at the same time contains the birthplace Republic of Crimea, Russia. Subsequently dipvedomstva Lithuania published another picture of the passport, which was issued in 2011 and the birthplace of the specified Odessa region, Russia.

This indicates that the Russian Federation is common practice to issue documents "retroactively" and with an indication of false information paranormal. Also, photocopies can be concluded that the document is a new sample with an electronic chip for the biometric data. If necessary, these data allow us to verify the origin of the passport, even in the absence of the original document.

Issuing passports with false information, the Russian Federation has compromised itself. This can be compared with the bank, which began issuing bad checks. After that, no passport, issued by the state authorities in Russia can not be considered valid, either in Ukraine or in other countries ", - says Vladimir Flonts, the head of public organization.

[Not sure if this dates from the Tymoshenko super agreement (I write that sarcastically) with Putin, where Ukraine had to buy a minimumm amount of gas at 400.
Great deal for Putin, and for Tymoshenko - I assume she got a big big bonus from Putin.
The Kyivpost no doubt wrote up that it was a super deal for Ukraine. Kievpost = Yuliapost. ]
