Russia won't release political prisoners held in illegally occupied Crimea. Work stops on electricity restoration. http://www.radiosvoboda.mobi/a/news/27389390.html

Yatz is probably to be thrown under the bus, along with his cabinet:

Valliant defender and patriot of Ukraine, Sturmabteilung volunteer Oleg Muzhchil':


http://antikor.com.ua/articles/77051...e_inoj_vzgljad

got killed by SBU in Kiev, during a raid against "Russian sabotage unit"
but before this unhappy turn of events he managed to dispatch another Ukrainian patriot, SBU officer, Andrei Kuz'menko:


http://podrobnosti.ua/2078935-spetso...a-v-kieve.html

so, the question is: between two of them, who was the greatest patriot?

Volyn' region, dead war hero has been transported to his grave.

Your rethoric is getting better, I see, more astute and humorous, meanwhile my question is not rethorical, I really wonder who feels more patriotic: SBU grunts or Right Sector fighters killing each other?

Meanwhile, I don't know who did away with all these petty warlords (if they were) and I don't care, ask Outlaw, he knows everything. Is fecit cui prodest.

mirhond, my question is not rhetorical. After watching/listening Russian news about Ukraine over a year, all answers may be true. You know about Russia more than Outlaw does, so I'm talking to you. I wonder if you can pick answer from my list or propose another version? You do care about kneeling people in the village, at the same time you don't care about people who did the footjob for Kremlin puppet masters in Donbas. Just wondering.

OK, if you talk seriously, my only reasonable guess about these warbosses as follows: they either were too independent and therefore dispatched by their Russian curators who need unity of command, or they were too careless and gave much pain in adversary ass, therefore SBU took care of them.

Ask OUTLAW--OUTLAW replies---Comrade mirhond maybe you have a better "legalistic fallacy" argument than the Duma---based on your own comments Putin argues he supports the right of international laws...BUT then again maybe Putin does but his own controlled Duma does not.....

CARE to comment......??

Sounds about right for the RF propaganda; Duma rolls out new law undermining International law, trolls out in force. https://twitter.com/Dean_Bain/status/677090669387603968

AND comrade mirhond.....there goes the food for Crimea---BUT WAIT Putin promised the first time he could indeed supplement the 300 daily Ukrainian food trucks with 300 Russian food trucks....well think again--he was able to only get 103 per WEEK into Crimea NOT even per day......

Ukraine's economy is in deep distres after years of terrible corrupt leadership and the Russian invasions. Now Ukraine Defaults on $3 Billion Bond to Russia.

One of the more interesting facets of the story:

Quote:
The government in Kiev is barred from paying Russia back in full under the conditions of the agreement with private creditors. That pact, in turn, is a key condition of a $17.5 billion IMF aid package secured this year to keep the country’s economy afloat. Under that deal, bondholders including Franklin Templeton accepted a 20* percent reduction to their principal holdings, something Russia refused to consider.
That chart looks like something a predatory lender would offer to a subprime candidate...



So what will Russia do? Sue? Invade?

*I would have hoped for it's economy's sake, just like in an earlier Greek case for a far higher reduction...

Default Electrical power cut again to the Crimea

From the BBC:
Quote:
Police in Ukraine believe an explosion caused damage to an electricity pylon, bringing fresh disruption to power supplies in Crimea....Crimea's two million people were severely affected when four pylons on the Kakhovsky-Titan power line were intentionally damaged. It took more than a fortnight for supplies to be restored....A contract between Ukrenergo and Crimea was set to come to an end on Thursday and there was no indication that it was being renewed in time for the new year....Moscow officials says two power lines through the Kerch Strait began providing 400 megawatts of electricity to Ukraine this month and further supplies will begin in May 2016.

Thankyou to Outlaw 09 and others who post here, like Firn, as it is unlikely another will post this thread I shall close now before I go out to party. Minus fireworks!

To the others who post here thank you, anyone who follows this thread will have learnt a lot - even if there is rarely disagreement.
