Ukraine leader’s wealth grows despite war, economic woes

Petro Poroshenko, President of Ukraine, addresses the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly September 29, 2015 in New York
.

Kiev (AFP) – The value of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s assets soared despite economic crisis and conflict while those of other tycoons shrank in an annual wealth list published Friday.

The 50-year-old Western-backed president’s business empire ranges from chocolates to media holdings still under his control.

Friday’s independent Novoye Vremya weekly showed the Ukrainian leader — often criticised for failing to curb the political powers of fellow tycoons — ranked as the country’s sixth-richest man.

His assets reportedly rose by 20 percent to $979 million (889 million euros) — only just supporting his claim he is no longer a billionaire.

Poroshenko retains control of a top TV channel and has failed to follow through on his promise to sell off his Roshen chocolate empire due to a lack of foreign interest and a dearth of rich-enough investors in Ukraine itself.

The president’s official spokesman did not pick up his phone when contacted repeatedly by AFP.

“Poroshenko’s (wealth) rose thanks to the rise in value of his candy business that — even in the midst of the deepest of crises — is developing quickly, building new capacities and conquering new markets,” the weekly said.

The wealth list is topped by metals magnate Rinat Akhmetov.

The 49-year-old Akhmetov is a controversial figure accused by some local media of impeding Poroshenko’s efforts to halt the 18-month war in the pro-Russian east.

Novoye Vremya said Akhmetov’s fortunes had plunged by 56 percent to $4.5 billion due in part to the sharp recent fall in global commodity prices.

Poroshenko’s sworn political foe and banking giant Igor Kolomoyskiy came in third with an estimated fortune of $1.9 billion.

The 52-year-old grey-bearded and fiercely outspoken figure finds himself in the peculiar position of being at odds with both Kiev and Moscow.

Russia’s state media accuse him of funding Ukrainian neo-Nazi combat units that commit grave crimes in the separatist east.

Poroshenko’s fight against Kolomoyskiy began with efforts to strip him of his indirect control of a state-owned oil company and culminated in the businessman losing his seat as governor of the industrially important Dnipropetrovsk region in March.

Kolomoyskiy’s wealth reportedly slipped by 17 percent due to the country’s financial woes.

All the others in the top 10 also lost money in the year since the last Novoye Vremya poll.

Ukraine’s economy is on track to shrink by about 12 percent this year and only return to marginal growth should the eastern campaign end in 2016.

– ‘No benefit to president’ –

Poroshenko promotes himself as a Western-style businessman who built his empire from the ground up and kept to transparency standards that most others simply ignored.

Many of Ukraine’s other mega-rich scooped up their holdings at cut-price rates in pre-arranged privatisation deals in which which they rewarded the government by funding its parliamentary parties and campaigning for them in the media.

But analysts said Poroshenko’s reputation may still suffer for being the only one of the country’s already-despised oligarchs to profit while presiding over Ukraine’s worst crisis since its independence from the Soviet Union in 1991.

“This will not benefit the president’s ratings or help improve Ukraine’s image as a nation run by oligarchs,” Vadym Karasyov of Kiev’s Institute of Global Strategies told AFP.

“The world views Ukraine as a poor country with a super-rich minority,” Karasyov said.

Nobody panic – Valeriy Pekar

2014/07/25 • Valeriy Pekar, for UP (http://www.pravda.com.ua)

Translated by Mariya Shcherbinina for http://euromaidanpress.com/

In detail and without panic on the internal political situation: the Parliament, the Government, the President and reforms.

Below all the words will be written in lowercase – this is incorrect, however it will make reading much easier.

1. Let’s start with the parliament. There is no alternative to disbanding the parliament.

This parliament does not reflect the post-Maidan social reality, in particular: the 180 made from dictatorship to republic, the emergence of a responsible and demanding civic society, war with a strong enemy, the objective necessity and the subjective desire for cardinal reforms, the people’s strive to tear away from their Soviet past, the speed-up of the formation of a political nation.

This parliament is full of titushky, political titushky, direct and overt enemies of Ukraine, traitors, oligarchs’ drivers and bodyguards, Kremlin agents etc.

Over half of the members of this parliament voted in support of the draconian laws on January 16th. This is sufficient to dismiss this parliament and elect a new one.

One of Maidan’s categorical demands was a full reboot of power: the government, the president, the parliament. The third stage of this process has come. There is no reason to step away from the demands that Maidan stood for and the Heaven’s Sotnya died.

The war will not interfere with the elections. What is more, now “the owners of Donbas” have to quickly get involved in kicking the mercenaries out, for the elections to be held there as well and for them to have representation in the parliament. If we are to claim that “the elections will happen after the war is over,” the war will go on forever.

There will be money for the elections. Fair governance (I don’t want to use the yellowing word “democracy”) is more important than money, as if there is no fair governance, then there is no money either. If the members of the parliament had passed at least one of the essential anti-corruption acts, then much more money than the elections require would have been released.

2. Reforms. Reforms are necessary: confident, complex, deep. There is no alternative: if there are no reforms, the country will simply fall to pieces. Everyone is obviously weary of this word. But there have been no real reforms yet, only talk.

Without anti-corruption reforms all the suffering and deaths would be in vain, and everything will be stolen yet again.

Without the tax reform, there will be no economical growth, welfare and employment.

Without the reform of court and the police, there will be new cases of Vradiyivka all around the country and a new social explosion, a horrible one.

Without the education reform we will become a third-world country, without any hopes. Without the reform of local governments nothing will change in towns and villages.

Usually people are scared of change and regard future reforms with caution. But we, as a country and a people, are going through such challenges, that an understanding is being cultivated within us: we have to fill up our lungs with air and plunge into this cold water, as there is no other choice anymore.

Society is approaching a critical limit of readiness to radical change. This will not last long: the window of opportunity opens and closes after some time. We have to take advantage of the chance, and break with the Ukrainian tradition of wasting chances. We have taken advantage of many opportunities in the last 8 months, therefore we have learned.

3. The president. Don’t ask whether he wants reforms or not. This is unimportant. It is important that he understands: he has no other choice as a politician. He definitely does not want to leave preemptively as a result of a social explosion or be remembered as the last president, God forbid.

As opposed to the members of the parliament, which may be up to their dirty tricks and return at the next elections, the president has no such chances. Therefore we have an ardent supporter of reform in the president’s person. It is not certain that he has enough necessary qualities, but he will definitely have enough will. He has the ambition to be remembered in history as a Ukrainian Lee Kuan Yew of sorts, the builder of a new country, and not Yushchenko 2.0 “whose descendants shame him in verse.”

4. The government. Here, everything is complicated.

Arseniy Petrovich is, without doubt, the best Prime Minister in all of the history of independent Ukraine. As opposed to the Maidan booth, here he absolutely in his element. Multilaterally competent, exceptionally able, attentive to detail, strong in conversation.

But this is not enough.

This government has an unconditional merit: having kept the country afloat after Yanukovich during war, civil unrest, bandits, lack of government and the ghost of chaos, the constant threat of financial collapse – this merits a dignified place in history.

They gave Crimea away? All right, there are issues. But what would have you done in this situation? Without an army, with a bunch of traits in all intimate places of the state apparatus?

Therefore, the government in general and the prime minister personally have to receive top scores for stabilizing the government.

But there have been no reforms. De facto, there were none. Instead, all the corruption schemes were quickly mastered by new people. They weren’t all ministers: frequently the minister was just the front, void of power, and they stole behind his back.

This government gets the lowest score for the lack of reforms and corruption.

5. However this government couldn’t have implemented reforms and beaten corruption. It was pointless to expect it.

First, politicians don’t conduct reform as reforms are unpopular, and the politicians need popularity. They need to get reelected, and they remember this well every day. The quote attributed to Winston Churchill that the politician thinks of future elections and a statesman – of the next generation, is already stuck on our teeth.

Reforms are made by governments of professional technocrats who don’t have political ambitions, instead they have a high ambition of state creation.

Reforms are not made by coalition governments wherein all posts are distributed according to quotas. Quota officials now have to steal to pay back the “debt” to the politicians that nominated them. It is senseless to expect from coalition members that they will nominate to government posts not their own people but professional reformers.

Yes, the government will definitely include not only those guilty of corruption, as someone else has to work as well, someone has to be scapegoat, and someone has to hold the title of “our Minister from Maidan.” However these individuals don’t change the entire system.

Therefore it was senseless to expect the coalition government to stop corruption and conduct reforms. As this government was created by opposition parties that have already shamed themselves on Maidan.

Individual enlightened names are an exclusion that confirms the rule. We will remember them, and possibly see them again.

And in general this government withstood the situation with war and state finances, and for this it should be thanked and respected. If someone thinks they would have done a better job, I am asking for a detailed action plan, accounting for all limitations and challenges.

6. Exiting the constitutional crisis we had in December-February does not take one step. There are always three steps.

The first government, “the government of national salvation,” has to stabilize the situation. This has been done.

The second government has to be a government of reform, professional and independent. Reformers to their job, are subject to the people’s hate and occupy their honorary places in history.

The third has to be the government of a new country already, to reflect the new, post-reform socio-political reality.

It is akin to a patient who is chronically sick and need surgery, a complex and risky one, but their condition is aggravated. First the doctors come who take down their fever and stabilize the analysis results, prepare them for surgery. Then the surgeons come, professional and merciless: they cut, clean out, stitch them up. And then the third group of people come, who gradually and gently rehabilitate the patient, returning them to life – a new life in which there is no place left for the cured disease.

Therefore the national salvation government does not make reforms not just because it is a coalition government. Reforms are not their job. They stabilized the situation, they did not allow war to spread, for bandits to rampage on all territory, they did not allow default – this means that they did their job.

The work of the national salvation government cannot last forever. The time to move forward comes.

7. And here the key role goes to the parliament again. Reforms without a parliament are impossible – as in a parliamentary republic reforms are made through legislative acts.

This parliament does not need reforms, it is incapable of making them. Therefore let us say goodbye to this parliament.

And here we go on to the most important point.

Who formed the government that quickly mastered the corrupt schemes of Yanukovich’s time? Who did not pass the very pertinent laws regarding anti-corruption, lustration, the state budget etcetera? The parliamentary majority: UDAR, “Svoboda,” BYT. They made a reputation on Maidan. Yes, there were some enlightened individuals, and we remembered them. And we also remembered the dark figures.

And now our task, the task of the citizens, of civil society is to fully update the political system. Bring to the parliament the people that will appoint a reform government, that will pass reformative laws.

And we, the powerful society able to kick out the dictator, overpower a stronger enemy in war, achieve support from the global community – we are unable to do this as of yet.

  1. We are unable to elect well-meaning and patriotic people to the parliament. The Kyiv elections proved this. We are voting for the old party gangs filled with old black bile. We, the Kyivans, brought “Chernovetskiy’s young team” to the Kyiv City Council.
  2. We are unable to put pressure on new democratic microscopic political powers, for them to unite. They came to the Kyiv elections in seven columns instead of one and lost. They will go to the parliamentary elections in twelve columns instead of one and lose.
  3. We are unable to distinguish populism and short-term projects from fair and open politics. The populists, empty like kefir bottles, are gaining our votes at presidential and Kyiv elections.
  4. We are unable to provide transparency and fairness of elections even in the capital. The stealing of votes, buying votes, violation of legislation – and this in Kyiv that survived Maidan and won.

Despite everything that happened to us, and all the changes in our conscience, we turned out to be unprepared.

It is already clear how the seats in the future parliament will be distributed. It will be an even worse parliament than today.

Unless we ourselves change. And change the political state of things.

With our civic position. Our level of conscience. Our personal participation as independent observers. Our explanatory work among friends, family and acquaintances. Our volunteer work in the headquarters of a united democratic force, to which we have to enlist all those we trust.

With our maturity and resilience, mistrust of populism and political projects of oligarchs and political technologists, behind the backs of which the outlines of the red Kremlin wall are emerging.

8. It is possible they will accuse me of not commenting on who said what to whom yesterday and the day before. Whatever.

Politics is actions, not words. If box was evaluated by what the boxers say to each other and not what they are doing, it would be a completely different sport. Words quickly become obsolete, their only goal is to evoke action. We look at actions and ignore words. This is what they are saying to each other, not us.

9. The issue of electoral law is the most critical. Will there by a majority in the parliament? Will there be open lists? Will party blocs be allowed? What will be the necessary minimum? Will financing be transparent?

We are watching closely. We demand change. This is the most important thing today to have a tomorrow.

And let us not forget: the guys will return from the front and ask us sternly what we were doing here while they were protecting us with their hearts on the line. They have to return to a country ready for a reboot.

10. This is a quest. We survived the first levels. They were difficult. But the next ones are no less difficult. We gained the right to pass these quest levels with our victory at the previous levels.

The end of dictatorship. War for independence. The birth of a political nation. The next levels: socio-political reboot, radical complex reforms, economical flourishing, international subjectivity, cultural expansion. It is impossible to skip those.

And this means that everything is going according to plan.

Let’s stop panicking.

Everything’s gonna be alright.

 

Russia shells Ukraine cross border with BM-21 ‘Grad’ (video proof)

(from http://info-news.eu/russia-shells-ukraine-cross-border-with-bm-21-grad-video-proof/)

The inhabitants of the city of Gukovo (Rostov region, Russia), which is situated close to the border with Ukraine, recorded the footage of Russian BM-21 ‘Grad’ 122 mm multiple rocket launcher firing in the direction of Ukraine.

Gukovo, Russia, map

There are three videos confirming that Russia shelled Ukraine. One video was published by the citizen of Russia Dmtiriy Tlyustangelov on his VK page (Russian Facebook), however later he deleted the video. But it was too late, it was copied by other people and uploaded on Youtube. There is no information who exactly shot two other videos, but they show the same developments from different positions.

On the video below we can clearly see the Russian ‘Grad’ shelling the detachments of Ukrainian counter-terrorist troops on the territory of Ukraine. The background voice says in Russian: “Что это такое? Это с Града стреляют.” – What is this? It is ‘Grad’ shelling.

The Ukrainian internet community compared the videos with the terrain on map. And we can clearly see the position of Russian BM-21 ‘Grad’ rocket launcher as well as the position of a cameraman.

Gukovo, Russia, Grad position, map

On the second video the background voice, says the following in Russian: “Вот так вот весело в городе Гуково, ребята. Хуячит Град.” – Here how funny is in the city of Gukovo, guys. The ‘Grad’ fucks (is shelling). On the third video we here, in Russian: “Ну и всё. Второй раз только” – And that’s all. [Shelling] for second time only.

It is already a second time this week, when Russians themselves post pictures and videos of Russian troops being directly involved in the so-called crisis in Ukraine, but in reality the Russo-Ukrainian war, since there is direct fighting between Russian and Ukrainian armies. However, there is no official declaration of war yet.

I have to remind, that couple of days ago one Russian customs’ officer Artem Karat posted on Instagram the pictures of Russian APC’s crossing the Russian border in the direction of Ukraine. Here’s the article of By24.org, in Russian.

Maybe these new evidences will be enough for the EU to adopt some serious sanctions against Russia, and maybe it will influence France to cancel the contract of sale of the Mistral-class amphibious assault ships to Russia.

UKRAINIAN NEWS, SUMMARY FOR JUNE 25, 2014 (from “Informational Resistance” group)

Dmitriy Timhuk (https://www.facebook.com/dmitry.tymchuk)

(Translated and edited by Voices of Ukraine)

Brothers and sisters, 

Here’s the Summary for June 25, 2014

THE BAD NEWS:

1. The “truce” continues unilaterally. Terrorists fire at ATO forces’ positions, undermine railroads, and capture new administrative buildings.

Peaceful civilians are being killed. Including children. Today, doctors reported that one of the shrapnel fragments went straight into the heart of a 10-month-old baby slain by terrorists on June 24 in the city of Anthracite [Luhansk Oblast].

I don’t know what type of a beast shoots at a children’s playground from a grenade launcher. How is it even possible? One word: nonhumans.

2. Strange things are happening at the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine [GPU]. The reduction of the GPU size, announced by the agency head, is definitely a positive. But then immediately thereafter a strange rotation on the position of Deputy Attorney General took place: Mykola Golomsha was replaced by the former Kyiv prosecutor Mykola Herasymiuk.

Against the latter’s candidacy, let me remind you, were “Right Sector.” As in, this gentleman worked for the prosecutor’s office when Yanukovych was in power and falsified criminal cases against Maidan participants.

I’m not saying that “Right Sector” is the truth of last resort. But once such serious allegations were made, it would be nice to conduct a thorough investigation and put the record straight about the identity of Herasymiuk. And don’t appoint him for such a high position on the quiet.

3. Proceeding from prosecutor’s cases on to military affairs.

We received information that some generals, who showed particular zeal at the collapse of the Army under Yanukovych, now gradually test the waters for a return to a military office.

In this regard, we tried to find out the fate of an interesting document. Namely, the results of an investigation conducted by the Ministry of Defense in April of this year, regarding the disintegration of the Armed Forces. To our knowledge, this document contains the names of specific generals and admirals, the guilty parties, I’m not afraid to use this word, in the tragedy. These materials were handed over to the Prosecutor General’s Office, and since then nothing could be heard about them.

We were unable to find the end of the investigation–the GPU is in chaos because of the new appointments. But we are waiting for the Attorney General Vitaliy Yarema to shed some light. Firstly, the homeland should know the faces of its “heroes.” And secondly, we cannot allow these “strategists” back into the Defense Ministry and the General Staff. No matter how badly they want it.

THE GOOD NEWS:

1. The [Ukrainian] Cabinet of Ministers decided on the engineering and technical arrangement of the state border with Russia. There will be no Great Wall of China, but trenches, barbed wire and surveillance for sure.

Let the Kremlin moan and cry that Kyiv cannot conduct a demarcation unilaterally. It is clear for everyone (except the Russians themselves), that any neighbor of Russia can feel relaxed only by cutting themselves off from Putin with a high fence.

And behind this fence it is desirable to have a pack of evil dogs (that is the border control guards and the army). For Putin’s unwelcome messengers not only to remain without pants, but without something more valuable.

Because we “became friends” with Russia once. Now we have to disentangle ourselves.

2. In the EU, a new body is being created–a support group in Ukraine which will include European officials and diplomats. The group’s goal is to coordinate EU institutions on issues related to Ukraine.

The creation of such a body to work with a country that is not an EU member is unprecedented. Let’s hope that this is not only a beautiful step but a truly qualitatively new format of work between Brussels and Kyiv.

3. The SBU [Security Service of Ukraine] detained terrorists who were preparing sabotage and terrorist attacks in Dnipropetrovsk, and dreamed of a “Dnipropetrovsk People’s Republic,” which would work closely with the “LNR” and “DNR” [Luhansk- and Donetsk People’s Republics].

At long last, the dream of the failed “presidents” and “prime ministers” of the “People’s Republic” to work closely with the dregs of society will finally come true. However, it’ll be behind bars. Here, they can expect a fascinating and magnificent inauguration process near the prison bucket [toilet]. As their spiritual father Himmler was fond of saying, “Jedem das Seine,” to each what he deserves…

News from Ukraine on June 24, 2014

 

http://blog.img.pravda.com/images/doc/d/e/de75a-00britanian.jpg U.S., UK, Canada, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa

June 24 – A railway bridge was blown up near the town of Orikhiv in Zaporizhia oblast on the night of the first day of ceasefire between Ukrainian servicemen and pro-Russian terrorists. Is this the answer of “Putin, the peacemaker” to Ukraine’s peace keeping initiatives? As a result of negotiations held in Donetsk on Monday, Ukrainian authorities, OSCE representatives and the terrorists reached an agreement on bilateral ceasefire until 10 am on June 27th.

June 24 – Russian President Vladimir Putin suggested that the Russian Federation Council revokes its Resolution on “the use of Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in Ukraine”, informed Dmitry Peskov, Putin’s Press Attaché. At first Putin let himself to use his army in Ukraine and then he changed his mind. And then he will change his mind again tomorrow. To cut a long story short – Putin has indeed become one of Russia’s tzars.

June 24 – Terrorists have shot down Ukrainian military helicopter Mi-8 near Karachun Mountain close to Sloviansk, informed ATO’s spokesman Vladyislav Seleznyov. 9 Ukrainian soldiers were killed in the crash. This is another of Putin’s “peacekeeping” responses to peace initiatives of Ukraine.

June 24 – Tripartite peace negotiations are being held in Donbas. The negotiators: Russian Ambassador to Ukraine Mikhail Zurabov (representing Russia), representative of the OSCE Chairman Heidi Tagliavini, the second President of Ukraine Leonid Kuchma (representing Ukraine), Oleksandr Boroday (representing terrorists from “People’s Republic of Donetsk”), Viktor Medvedchuk (friend and well-known mouthpiece of Putin – it is unclear whom he represents), leader of the pro-Russian movement “South-East” Oleg Tsaryov and the representatives of “People’s Republic of Luhansk”. Russian Ambassador to Ukraine Mikhail Zurabov has stated that Viktor Medvedchuk participated in this meeting on behalf of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko. Should we guess whether he was “defending” the interests of Ukraine? Are they again thinking of blocking Ukraine’s integration with the EU and NATO?

Ten Myths Used to Justify Russian Policy in the Ukraine Crisis

 

http://blog.img.pravda.com/images/doc/a/e/ae9bc-00france.jpg France, Belgique, Canada, Suisse

Le 24 juin – Dans la nuit de la première journée de la trêve entre l’Ukraine et les terroristes pro-russes, un pont de chemin de fer a sauté près d’Orikhiv, région de Zaporizhya. Est-ce la réponse de Poutine “le pacificateur” aux initiatives de paix du gouvernement ukrainien? Le lundi à Donetsk, les autorités ukrainiennes, l’OSCE et les représentants des terroristes sont parvenus à un accord sur un cessez-le-feu bilatéral jusqu’au 27 juin 10 heures.

Le 24 juin – “Le président russe, Vladimir Poutine a proposé au Conseil de la Fédération de Russie de révoquer la résolution “d’utiliser les forces armées russes sur le territoire de l’Ukraine.” – déclaration de Dmitri Peskov, secrétaire de presse du président. C’est donc Poutine qui a autorisé l’envoi de l’armée en Ukraine, et c’est lui-meme qui l’interdit. Et demain… il se le permettra de nouveau. En un mot, Poutine est devenu le vrai tsar de la Russie.

24 juin – “Près de la montagne Karatchoun à côté de Slovyansk, les terroristes ont abattu un hélicoptère militaire Mi-8 ukrainien.” déclare Vladyslav Selezniov, porte-parole du quartier general de l’ATO (opération anti-terroriste). Neuf militaires ukrainiens sont morts. C’est une autre réponse de Poutine “le pacificateur” aux initiatives de paix de l’Ukraine.

24 juin – Des pourparlers de paix trilatéraux se tiennent dans le Donbass. Les négociateurs: l’ambassadeur russe en Ukraine, Mikhail Zourabov (représentant de la Russie), la représentante du directeur de l’OSCE, Heidi Tagliavini, le deuxième président de l’Ukraine, Leonid Koutchma (qui représente l’Ukraine), Oleksandr Boroday (représentant des terroristes de la “Republique populaire de Donetsk), Viktor Medvedtchouk (parrain de l’enfant de Poutine et porte-voix de Poutine en Ukraine – on ne sait pas qui il représente), le chef de file du mouvement pro-russe “Yugo-Vostok” (Sud-Est), Oleh Tsariov et les représentants de la “republique populaire de Louhansk”. L’ambassadeur russe en Ukraine, Mikhail Zourabov affirme que Viktor Medvedtchouk participé à la réunion trilatérale au nom du président de l’Ukraine, Petro Porochenko. Vous pouvez vous imaginer comment il va “défendre” les intérêts de l’Ukraine! Est-ce que l’adhésion de l’Ukraine à l’UE et à l’OTAN sera de nouveau compromise?

http://blog.img.pravda.com/images/doc/d/d/ddf8a-00deutchland.jpg Deutschland, Österreich, Schweiz

24. Juni – In der Nacht nach der Erklärung des Waffenstillstands zwischen der ukrainischen Seite und den prorussischen Separatisten wurde in der der Nähe der Stadt Orichiw, Gebiet Saporishia eine Eisenbahnbrücke gesprengt. Ist das die Antwort des “Friedensstifters” Putin auf die Friedensinitiativen der Ukraine? Am Montag wurde nämlich in den Verhandlungen zwischen der ukrainischen Regierung, der OSZE und den Vertretern der donezker Terroristen eine Übereinkunft über die zweitseitige Feuerpause bis zum 27.06.,10 Uhr erreicht.

24. Juni – Russischer Präsident Wladimir Putin hat dem russischen Föderationsrat (Oberkammer des Parlaments, Anm. d. Ü.) vorgeschlagen, den Beschluss über den “Einsatz der Streitkräfte der Russischen Föderation auf ukrainischem Gebiet” zurückzunehmen, teilte der Pressesprecher des Staatsoberhaupts Dmitri Peskow mit. Putin hat sich selbst die Erlaubnis erteilen lassen und jetzt sich selbst ein Verbot verhängt. Morgen wird er sich selbst vielleicht wieder erlauben. Kurzum ist Putin endgültig russischer Zar geworden.

24. Juni – In der Nähe des Bergs Karatschun bei Slowjansk haben die Terroristen einen ukrainischen Hubschrauber vom Typ Mi-8 abgeschossen, teilte der Pressesprecher des Koordinationszentrums der Anti-Terror-Operation Wladislaw Selesniow mit. Neun ukrainische Soldaten sind dabei ums Leben gekommen. Noch eine Antwort des “Friedensstifters” Putin auf die ukrainische Friedensinitiativen.

24. Juni – In Donezk laufen derzeit dreiseitige Friedensgespräche. Die Parteien sind: russischer Botschafter in der Ukraine Michail Surabow (vertritt Russland), Vertreter des OSZE-Vorsitzenden Heidi Tagliavini, der zweite Präsident der Ukraine Leonid Kutschma (vertritt die Ukraine), Alexander Borodaj (vertritt die Terroristen der “Volksrepublik Donezk”), Wiktor Medwedschuk (dessen Sohn ist Putins Patenkind; wen er vertritt, ist unklar), Anführer der prorussischen Bewegung “Südosten” Oleh Zarew und Vertreter der “Volksrepublik Luhansk”. Der russische Botschafter in der Ukraine Michail Surabow erklärte, dass Wiktor Medwedschuk im Auftrag des ukrainischen Präsidenten Petro Poroschenko an der Sitzung der dreiseitigen Kontaktgruppe teilnehmen würde. Es ist nicht schwer zu erahnen, wie er die “Interessen der Ukraine vertritt”. Soll hiermit etwa die Integration der Ukraine in die EU und in die NATO blockiert werden?

Zehn Mythen der Rechtfertigung russischer Politik in der Ukraine-Krise

 

http://blog.img.pravda.com/images/doc/0/7/079da-00italy.jpg Italia, Svizzera, Vaticano

24 giugno – Nei pressi della città Shchàstia è caduta in un’imboscata ed è stata imprigionata la donna-pilota Nadiya Savchenko, insieme ad altri soldati ucraini. I leader dell’ATO intendono scambiare il pilota Savchenko per un terrorista, – comunica il capo dell’ufficio stampa del Ministero della Difesa dell’Ucraina Bohdan Sennyk.

24 giugno – Nella notte del primo giorno di tregua fra gli ucraini e i terroristi filorussi è stato fatto saltare in aria un ponte ferroviario vicino alla città di Orihiv nella regione di Zaporizhzhia. È questa la risposta del “pacifista” Putin alle iniziative di pace in Ucraina? Ricordiamo che lunedì nel corso dei negoziati tra le autorità ucraine, i rappresentanti dell’OSCE e quelli dei terroristi di Donets’k è stato raggiunto un accordo sul cessate il fuoco bilaterale fino alle ore 10:00 del 27 giugno.

24 giugno – Il presidente russo Vladimir Putin ha proposto al Consiglio della Federazione di revocare la Risoluzione “per l’introduzione delle forze armate russe sul suolo ucraino”, – ha comunicato l’addetto stampa del presidente Dmitry Peskov. Il presidente si è autoconcesso la possibilità di utilizzare l’esercito in Ucraina e allo stesso modo ha revocato la propria decisione. E domani magari cambierà idea. Putin è diventato vero zar della Russia.

24 giugno – A Slovians’k, i terroristi hanno abbattuto un elicottero militare ucraino Mi-8, – ha detto il portavoce dell’ATO Valdyslav Selezniov. Sono morti 9 militari ucraini. È l’ennesima risposta di Putin alle iniziative di pace promosse dall’Ucraina.

24 giugno – Nel Donbas sono in corso i negoziati a tre: i negoziatori sono: l’ambasciatore russo in Ucraina Mikhail Zurabov, il rappresentante dell’OSCE Heidi Tagliavini, il secondo presidente dell’Ucraina Leonid Kuchma, Aleksandr Boroday (rappresentante i terroristi), Viktor Medvedchuk (imparentato con Putin e portavoce di Putin in Ucraina – non si sa chi stia rappresentando), Oleh Tsarev (leader del movimento filorusso Iugo-Vostok) e i rappresentanti della Repubblica Popolare di Luhans’k. L’ambasciatore russo in Ucraina Mikhail Zurabov ha detto che Medvedchuk stia partecipando ai negoziati a nome del presidente dell’Ucraina Poroshenko. Non sarà che il processo di integrazione dell’Ucraina nell’UE e nella NATO verrà nuovamente bloccato?

23 czerwca – Na Donbasie odbyły się trzystronne rozmowy pokojowe. Negocjatorzy: ambasador Rosji w Ukrainie Michaił Zurabow (reprezentujący Rosję), przedstawiciel przewodniczącego OBWE Heidi Tagliavini, drugi prezydent Ukrainy Leonid Kuczma (reprezentujący Ukrainę), obecne także: poszukiwany przez wymiar sprawiedliwości Ukrainy za terroryzm obywatel Rosji Aleksandr Borodaj (lider organizacji terrorystycznej DRL), poszukiwany przez wymiar sprawiedliwości Ukrainy za zdradę stanu były deputowany Rady Najwyższej Ukrainy Oleg Cariow (przywódca irredentystycznego ruchu “Jugo-Wostok” za oderwanie południowo-wschodniej części Ukrainy i przyłączenie ją do Rosji), bliski przyjaciel Władimira Putina i kontakter pomiędzy prezydentem Rosji i terrorystami Donbasu Wiktor Miedwiedczuk, czynny deputowany Rady Najwyższej Ukrainy Nestor Szufrycz. Rosyjski ambasador w Ukrainie Michaił Zurabow oświadczył, że Miedwiedczuk uczestniczył w posiedzeniu Trójstronnej grupy kontaktowej w imieniu prezydenta Ukrainy Petra Poroszenki, co było później zaprzeczono przez rzecznika RBNO.

24 czerwca – W nocy na drugą dobę rozejmu między Ukrainą i rosyjskimi terrorystami, w pobliżu miasta Orichów obwodu Zaporoskiego nieznane sprawcy wysadzili most kolejowy. Czy to odpowiedź Putina na pokojowe inicjatywy na Ukrainie? Przecież w poniedziałek na negocjacjach między władzami Ukrainy i przedstawicielami OBWE oraz Rosją i opiekanymi przez nią terrorystami w Doniecku osiągnięto porozumienie w sprawie zawieszenia broni do 10 rano w dniu 27 czerwca.

24 czerwca – Prezydent Rosji Władimir Putin zaproponował Radzie Federacji w Rosja uchylić uchwałę “o użyciu sił zbrojnych Federacji Rosyjskiej na terytorium Ukrainy”, poinformował sekretarz prasowy prezydenta FR Dmitrij Pieskow. Ponieważ prezydent Putin w całości kontroluje organa ustawodawcze w FR, to takie działania wyglądają na rozkazy lewej reki dla prawej władcy, który osiągnął poziom wszechmocy imperatora Rosji.

24 czerwca – W Słowiańsku w pobliżu góry Karaczun terroryści rosyjscy zestrzelili ukraiński śmigłowiec wojskowy Mi-8, według rzecznika sztabu ATO Władysława Sełezniowa, zginęli 9 ukraińskich żołnierzy. Jest to kolejna odpowiedź prezydenta Putina na pokojowe inicjatywy Ukrainy.

24 червня – У ніч на перший день перемиря між українською стороною і проросійськими терористами поблизу міста Оріхів Запорізької області підірвали залізничний міст. Це відповідь “миротворця” Путіна на мирні ініціативи України? У понеділок на переговорах між українською владою, ОБСЄ та представниками терористів в Донецьку досягли домовленості про двостороннє припинення вогню до 10 ранку 27 червня.

24 червня – Президент РФ Володимир Путін запропонував російській Раді Федерації скасувати постанову “про використання Збройних сил РФ на території України” – прес-секретар глави держави Дмитро Пєсков. Сам собі дозволив використовувати армію в Україні – і сам собі й заборонив. А завтра знову дозволить. Одним словом, Путін реально став російським царем.

24 червня – Під Слов’янськом біля гори Карачун терористи збили український військовий вертоліт Мі-8 – речник штабу АТО Владислав Селезньов – загинуло 9 українських військових. Це ще одна відповідь “миротворця” Путіна на мирні ініціативи України.

24 червня – На Донбасі відбуваються тристоронні мирні переговори. Сторони переговорів: посол РФ в Україні Михайло Зурабов (Представляє Росію), представник голови ОБСЄ Хайді Тальявіні, другий президент України Леонід Кучма (представляє Україну), Олександр Бородай (терористів ДНР), Віктор Медведчук (кум Путіна і відомий рупор Путіна в Україні – кого представляє невідомо), лідер проросійського руху “Юго-Восток” Олег Царьов і представники “ЛНР”. Посол РФ в Україні Михайло Зурабов заявив, що Віктор Медведчук брав участь у засіданні Тристоронньої контактної за дорученням президента України Петра Порошенка. Можна здогадатися, як він “відстоює” інтереси України. Невже знову заблокують інтеграцію України з ЄС та НАТО?

UKRAINIAN NEWS, SUMMARY FOR MAY 26, 2014 (from “Informational Resistance” group)

Dmitriy Timhuk (https://www.facebook.com/dmitry.tymchuk)

(Translated and edited by Voices of Ukraine)

Brothers and sisters, 

Here’s the Summary for May 26, 2014

THE BAD NEWS:

1. Yanukovych said that he respects the choice of the Ukrainian people in the Presidential elections. What a respectful [ousted former] President of ours he is. But at the same time, he says,  “the legitimacy of these elections, as well as the legitimacy of the President requires the participation of  southeastern Ukraine.”

Of course, this brings up numerous questions and topics for trolling. What “southeastern Ukraine,” what the hell? All of southern and the majority of eastern Ukraine voted normally. The only problems arose with districts (and by no means all of them) of Donbas where terrorists disrupted the process.

Or how about Yanukovych calling Ukraine “our country.” Did it just seem to me, or is he mocking [us]? His Ukraine as a country bred by his own corruption, lies, villainy, and violence is over and will never come back (I firmly believe in it). And the new Ukraine has no place for him.

Overall, this is all laughable, but we all understand that the voice of Yanukovych comes from the piece of paper written by the Kremlin. Whatever is said by this clown–is Putin’s position.

Although, the State Duma of the Russian Federation has already declared that they hope for a constructive dialogue with Ukrainian authorities. Thus, today the First Deputy Chairman of the Lower Chamber of the Constitutional Legislation and State-Building of the Russian State Duma A. Ageyev announced this. Also, the same was stated by the Head of the State Duma Committee on CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration, and Relations with Fellow Countrymen L. Slutskiy.

So, [they] will have to engage in dialogue. They won’t get anywhere. The only question is what will this dialogue result in?

2. Terrorists who attacked the polling station in Novoaidar Raion [district] in Luhansk Oblast yesterday, were led by a V. Maretskyi who is a rector at one of the local churches of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church [UOC] of the Moscow Partiarchate [MP].

This isn’t the first case like this. Objects [churches] and the clergy of the UOC MP in Donbas have been the centers of anti-Ukrainian activity for a long time. Now they are an important element in terrorist activities.

Anti-Ukrainian propaganda among the local parishioners, harboring and comprehensive assistance to the insurgents, conversion of churches and monasteries into temporary shipment bases–it’s all been done.

I understand that we cannot accuse all representatives of the UOC MP en masse. Just like [in the situation] with Russian journalists [from Life News]–here the opinion of the internatonal community is unlikely to be on our side. But this problem has to be solved somehow.

The good news:

1. The Presidential elections in Ukraine took place. And they took place in one round. There’s no doubt that the civilized world recognizes (and it’s happening already) their legitimacy.

Now we can congratulate all of us with the new President only in the sense that his emergence completely solves the problem of the “legitimacy” of the new government.

But it’s too early to say whether we should really be happy. This can be determined only after the first steps (not in words but in action) of our new leader to address the problems of separatism and counteraction of Russian intervention in our affairs, as well as the problems with economics, social services, etc.

I very much hope that Ukrainians have not miscalculated.

2. Activization of the ATO. Today’s large-scale operation to liberate the Donetsk airport from terrorists is a good initiative. We hope it will be successfully continued.

The bad thing is that the fighting has gone into cities where hundreds of thousands of peaceful and innocent civilians live. The good thing is that terrorists no longer feel themselves the masters of the land of Donbas. For this is already tired.

I very much hope that today’s activity of the ATO forces is not just a desire by the operation command to show to the newly-elected President that it is capable of acting. But let’s wait and see. Personally, I think that the personnel reshuffle within the ATO is a necessity. But this is my personal opinion.

26-1 26-3 26-4 26-5 26-226-7 26-8

 26-9 26-10

Photos: Donetsk airport, insurgents took firing positions on the airport roof, ukrainian helicopters fires at insurgents inside the airport terminal, family takes the shelter in a building near the airport, terrorist seize airport in Donetsk, Donetsk sky after the fight.

3. Today we have once again evaluated the number of Russian troops at our borders. Their grouping has really diminished.

In particular, in the eastern regions of Ukraine more than 11,000 Russian personnel are deployed and about 1,500 pieces of military equipment.

This still isn’t a reason to talk about peace and stability. Troops can return in a few days, their transfer to the border with Ukraine is already well practiced. And the regular supply of weapons to our terrorists and to new subdivisions of mercenaries from Russia goes at full speed.

But this is a small gap in a quiet war with Moscow for the first time in many weeks. We’ll learn to appreciate small successes, bringing nearer a time for big ones.
