Re: Ukraine riots.

“Back in 2010 when world football governing body FIFA awarded Russia the right to host this year’s World Cup finals, few viewed Moscow as a threat. At the time, President Dmitry Medvedev seemed eager to portray himself as a Western-friendly reformer. In the diplomatic arena, the reset with the Obama White House had yet to unravel and it would be a further two years before US presidential candidate Mitt Romney would face ridicule for daring to call Russia America’s number one geopolitical foe. The 2007 cyber-attack on Estonia and the 2008 war in Georgia had certainly set some alarm bells ringing, but most still regarded talk of a new Cold War as absurd…

Five Ways the Kremlin Can Meddle in Ukraine’s Big Election

“On June 15, Yulia Tymoshenko launched the start of Ukraine’s presidential election season with a two-and-half hour speech in Kyiv, Ukraine. With twenty-nine percent of voters telling pollsters they haven’t made their minds up for the race slated for March 31, the field is wide open. But it’s not too soon to start worrying about the many ways in which the Kremlin may meddle in the election…

Re: Ukraine riots.

Crimea’s growing water problem might provoke new Russian attack against Ukraine

“While Russia is boasting about the opening of a bridge connecting Crimea with Russia through the Azov Sea, news no less important are being overlooked. The occupied peninsula is suffering from an extreme drought. At the beginning of summer 2018, the self-proclaimed authorities of Crimea announced a state of emergency in several regions. And the dry weather is only a small part of the problem. Since the beginning of the occupation, Crimea is cut off from water coming from mainland Ukraine. This water is crucial for the arid peninsula. Experts assume that the catastrophic water situation could spur another Russian act of aggression against Ukraine…

Re: Ukraine riots.

Ukraine’s Friend & Foe of the Week

Ukraine’s Friend of the Week: Chrystia Freeland

The world has changed with amazing rapidity since 2014, when Russia began its military aggression against Ukraine with the invasion and start of the occupation of Ukraine’s Crimea.

Since then, Russia has started a war on Ukraine in the Donbas, shot down a civilian airliner over eastern Ukraine, intervened militarily to prop up its client dictator Bashar al-Assad in Syria, and interfered in the U.S. presidential elections and, probably, in the “Brexit” referendum in the United Kingdom on leaving the European Union. The Kremlin’s attempts to interfere in presidential and general elections in France and Germany were apparently less successful.

Meanwhile, far-right populism, with Kremlin support, is on the rise in Europe, and the United States has a president that seemingly has more sympathy for murderous dictators like Russia’s Vladimir Putin and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un than the leaders of long-time allies of the United States, like Germany and Canada.

One thing for which Ukraine can be grateful is that Canada has been unwavering in its support over the last four, difficult years. That is in no small part due to the work of Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland, Ukraine’s Friend of the Week and a winner of the Order of Yaroslav the Wise…

Ukraine’s Foe of the Week: Alexander Shulgin

The use of chemical weapons is on the rise in the world: In Britain, a former Russian spy, Sergey Skripal, and his daughter Yulia were poisoned by a “novichok” nerve agent in March. There have been multiple cases of use of chlorine gas and the nerve agent sarin against civilians in Syria in recent years, most likely by the regime of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, while Islamist rebels in Syria have also been accused of using mustard gas.

With the use of these horrendous weapons becoming more brazen, it would seem the ideal time to increase the powers of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons or OPCW to name the perpetrators of these crimes against humanity.

At the moment, the OPCW is mandated to investigate possible cases of use of chemical weapons, but it does not have a mandate to indicate who is responsible for such attacks. But naming, shaming, and holding to account in the international courts those who use chemical weapons would have a powerful deterrent effect. What country could possible object to the OPCW, and independent watchdog, being granted increased powers to identify suspected criminals?

Russia, of course…

Russia should be kicked out of all such organizations until a government comes to power in the Kremlin that will behave in a cooperative, civilized and law-abiding manner.

Until then, the civilized world can expect nothing but more poison from the Kremlin.

Re: Ukraine riots.

Russian-led forces violate latest Donbas cease-fire within hours



"The “summer cease-fire” in the Donbas, agreed at the meeting in Minsk on June 27, started all along the 426-kilometers contact line of Russia’s war against Ukraine in the Donbas at midnight on July 1 and was supposed to last for at least two months.

It didn’t even last two hours.

Russian-led forces violated the cease-fire twice in the first hours after its official start, the Ukrainian Army’s Joint Forces Operation press service reported on Facebook early on July 1. The Joint Forces Operation or JFO is the name of Ukraine’s military campaign to defend the country from Kremlin aggression...

Re: Ukraine riots.

OSCE reports 325 explosions within 24 hours amid "harvest ceasefire" in Donbas

"Monitors of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to Ukraine have reported 325 explosions within 24 hours amid the so-called "harvest ceasefire" in Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the Minsk Trilateral Contact Group on Donbas announced on June 27 that the sides had preliminarily committed to a ceasefire in Ukraine's east from July 1 due to the launch of a harvesting campaign, the so-called "harvest ceasefire."

Since then, Russian-led forces in Donbas have constantly been violating the truce.

Q&A: Will Trump Give Away Crimea at Helsinki?
How can Trump give something away that he neither owns nor is in control of?
If Trump says to Putin, give Crimea back to Ukraine & Putin says NO, is that classed as giving Crimea away?

We understand that – seemingly Trump doesn’t.

Trump is more likely to say keep Crimea.
Putin has already stated that Crimea is not up for discussion.

And Trump is unlikely to criticize Putin for helping him win the election

Should he ask Putin to withdraw Russian military from Donbas he will be told (with a straight face) that there aren’t any.

Which doesn’t leave a great deal open for discussion except for a lot of back patting.

Nevertheless I’m sure it will be a great, truly great meeting

Re: Ukraine riots.

I just don't see where the "giving it away" comes into it. TBH I don't see it coming back to Ukraine in my lifetime but hey I've been wrong many times in my life.
