Re: Ukraine

Jaycey may be able to find this video I saw last week from the Ukraine. Workers put their councillor in the refuse bin and trawled him through the street. He was eventually able to jump out with his very nice suit hardly ruined.
Can you find it Jaycey?

Last week? That was back in 2014 when protests were made against corrupt government officials and Yukanovic supporters.

These days we are more hygienic and throw them under a bus

Ukraine Prepares To Snub China In Aerospace Deal With U.S. Help

Motor.jpg

"Withholding U.S. defense aid to Ukraine became the talk of town in Washington D.C. during the impeachment hearings. Meanwhile, a different drama has been unfolding in Ukraine around a key strategic aerospace company, Motor Sich, that the U.S. is trying to stop China from buying.

Ukraine’s antitrust authority is preparing a case to potentially block a deal that would give Beijing access to unique defense technology, and the U.S. diplomacy and technical assistance has played a key role in the process, according to the agency’s chairman.

Created in 1907, Motor Sich is a leading manufacturer of helicopter and aircraft engines, including engines for the world’s largest cargo plane An-225, also known as “Mriya.” A major chunk of its business is also built around servicing and upgrading Soviet-made defense technology....

I don’t remember that particular spat & doubt that it would have made nationwide news - there is a lot going on here at the moment. Even punch ups in parliament get scant attention !

All TV news programs here are in Russian (or Ukrainian) and not easy to follow unless you are fluent but what exactly happened to make it BBC news?


BTW A pensioner has at most $200 pm and many live below the poverty line - a situation that is expected to be addressed next month.

Re: Ukraine

Should Ukraine supply water to Kremlin-occupied Crimea?

Editor’s Note: After Russia occupied Crimea in 2014, water supply to the peninsula through the Ukrainian North Crimean Canal was blocked. Ukraine’s government had been insisting that the water supply can restart only when the Russian occupation of Crimea ends and the peninsula is reintegrated in Ukraine. However, recently several Ukrainian lawmakers, including the head of the faction “Servant of the People” David Arakhamia stated that they were considering selling water to Crimea if Russia makes substantial concessions in the Donbas in return. We asked people on the streets in Kyiv what they think about restoring the water supply to Crimea.

Some interesting points raised.

Ministers Say Tehran Won't Hand Over 'Damaged' Black Box Of Downed Ukrainian Plane

plane.jpg

“The black box of a Ukrainian passenger airliner mistakenly shot down over Iran last month is damaged and Iran will not hand it over to another country despite pressure for access, state media quoted top Iranian ministers as saying on February 19.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said last week that he had "impressed upon" Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif that a complete and independent investigation into the shooting down of the airliner had to be carried out.

Ukraine International Airlines Flight PS752 was brought down after it took off from Tehran on January 8, killing everyone on board. The 176 victims included 82 Iranian citizens and 63 Canadians, many of them of Iranian origin…

U.S. calls on Russia to allow OSCE, UN monitors' access to occupied Crimea

OSCE.jpg

The U.S. diplomat says her country will continue to press for UN attention and the international spotlight on Russia's aggression against Ukraine.

"We note that six years of ongoing conflict in Ukraine has led to the deaths of more than 13,000 people, displaced 1.4 million, and left 3.4 million in need of humanitarian assistance.

At the same time, Russia continues to ignore the call for a comprehensive ceasefire and stalls agreement on additional disengagement areas and crossing points along the Line of Contact," she said. "These actions, and Russia's aggression are flagrant violations of international norms, are the greatest threat to European security since the Balkan Wars of the 1990s."

Ukraine: violent clashes as locals hurl stones at coronavirus evacuees' bus
Residents of Novi Sanzhary clash with police over nearby quarantine site, intended to host 70 people evacuated from China


Ukraine’s effort to quarantine more than 70 people evacuated from China over the new virus outbreak was plunged into chaos on Thursday as local residents hurled stones at buses carrying the evacuees and engaged in violent clashes with police.

The vehicles were finally able to reach the designated place of quarantine after hours of clashes. The masked evacuees, exhausted by the long journey, peeked through shattered bus windows as they drove slowly under heavy police escort.

Since the early morning, several hundred residents of the village of Novi Sanzhary in Ukraine’s central Poltava region had barricaded the road to a sanitarium intended to host the evacuees, fearing that they could become infected.Demonstrators, some of whom appeared drunk, put up road blocks, burned tyres and clashed with hundreds of riot police who moved to restore access. One protester tried to ram police lines with his car.

The Ukrainian authorities say all passengers on board had been screened twice for the virus before being allowed to fly, but that was not enough to pacify the protesters.

“Isn’t there any other place in Ukraine that can host 50 people, that is located in more or less remote villages or in far-off areas where there is no threat to population?” queried resident Yuriy Dzyubenko.

One protester was heard suggesting they should be kept at Chernobyl, the site of the world’s worst nuclear disaster in 1986. Another suggested taking them to parliament, while another said Zelenskiy, Ukraine’s president, should house them himself if he really believed there was no danger.

“This is what I am telling him, telling the president: ‘Take 10 people, then I will take two,’” a man called Yuriy, who did not give his last name, said.


Nine police and one civilian were hospitalised, regional police said in a statement.

More than 10 protesters were detained, and Ukraine’s interior minister, Arsen Avakov, visited the site of the skirmishes to try to calm the crowd down. He urged the protesters “not to fall for provocations and be understanding of the necessity for these temporary measures”.

“The situation is rather heated,” Poltava’s regional police spokesman Yuri Sulayev said.

President Volodymyr Zelenskiy also weighed in, saying the protests showed “not the best side of our character”. In a statement on his Facebook page, Zelenskiy said the authorities had done everything possible to make sure the virus would not spread to Ukraine.

“But there is another danger that I would like to mention. The danger of forgetting that we are all human and we are all Ukrainian,” he said.


Municipal legislators in the village vowed to continue opposing the evacuation, saying that the sanitarium’s sewage system was linked to the one in the village and ends up in a nearby waste facility.

“We can’t allow putting the health and life of local residents at risk, and demand that top officials take urgent moves to prevent people from China from being put here,” they said in a statement.

Amid the clashes between local residents and police, Ukraine’s prime minister, Oleksiy Honcharuk, said he would immediately fly to the site to oversee matters personally.

A plane with 45 Ukrainians and 27 foreign nationals took off from Wuhan early on Thursday, the origin of the outbreak that has infected more than 75,000 people worldwide and killed over 2,100.

Those evacuated included nationals from Belarus, Kazakhstan, Argentina, Ecuador, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic and Panama.
