Posted on 04/11/2014 11:23:06 AM PDT by UMCRevMom@aol.com
Brothers and sisters,
The bad: 1. first Vice Prime Yarema said that extremists in the South-East of Ukraine want to provoke the power scenario.
That chopper and need Russia, no one doubted. At the same time, we do not see much success negotiating security.
I think the worst thing in this situation of uncertainty on the part of the authorities. Two days later she was frightened by the script, and eventually began to explain why he should not be allowed.
I do not plead for bloodshed. But choose one position already, and stay until the end. Because of the changing and uncertain to face of a young girl, but not the Government. In the fight against terrorists need iron will, not mysterious.
By the way, at the weekend, 12-13 April, on the basis of the latest data, information resistance ", we expect to strengthen extremists in the South-East. I hope the security forces are ready.
2. the Defense Ministry today confirmed that, as we reported a few days ago: the return of Crimean Russians disable technique, as can.
At least four dozen tanks returned in good condition. You can see, have not been able to tank rollers knife nerves as it did with tires of vehicles. Talented guys out there that talk.
Also begins return of captured Ukrainian Navy. This is already positive.
3. "the Kremlin dog Lavrov today which moved tolstoi to tears. Says Russia has no plans to join the South-Eastern region of Ukraine, saying that it ran counter to the interests of the Russian Federation. And finished off with the phrase "we want Ukraine was holistic in its present borders."
I wonder when the Kremlin clowns write such statements, they do not laugh? It's should-skommunizdili an Autonomous Republic of Ukraine, and now broadcast about his desire to see Ukraine as a "holistic".
Indeed, the hypocrisy and cynicism of the Kremlin is infinite.
4. presidential candidate of Ukraine Oleg Lazarenko assured the separatists in Donetsk that would do everything to disrupt presidential elections may 25.
I don't know what kind of Tsareva presidential candidate. But for the candidate to place near the prison the pot it's hard to find a more suitable person.
The good: 1. Ukraine needs two years to stabilize the situation in the economy. It predicts the Prime-Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
Like many of you, I don't particularly believe Yatsenyuk. But such statements I would like to believe. Especially knowing that such projections depended largely on the us-each in its place.
2. representatives of the Jewish community in Odessa and UNSO have removed the anti-Semitic graffiti from the streets of the city.
The UPDF have special sympathy there. But I can't help but recognize the symbolism and political importance of such a step.
Remember, as we all were amazed by the Maidan during the time that the far-right nationalists in the storming of the Ukrainian House in Kyiv led the Commander-Jew? Even then it was clear that Ukraine is a unique country. And that no filth is not going to the national map. Even if this filth is sitting in the cabin under the giant stars.
Other countries-especially in its rotted through xenophobia Russia-here there is a lot to learn.
3. volunteer groups begin a massive fundraiser for the army, for specific military units. For example, there is a collection of funds for the purchase of equipment for the troops.
It's just a wonderful initiative, bearing in mind that the army at us constantly in the role of Cinderella-razutaâ and naked.
But there is also a fly in the ointment. While all these samples "commandos of the future equipment not approved by military officials and not taken" adopted ", meaning in such procurement.
First, in a few months will have to procure a new party outfit. Old it wears out, and new people to come to them, too, to clothe in exactly the same. Will the Defense Ministry to communicate with this problem (after all, purchasing a miracle-gear on to him)? I Doubt It.
Secondly, there will be an interesting picture: Nikolaev paratroopers in one narâeny, Zhytomyr-into something else, and Dnipropetrovsk and is in third. Agree, this is not an army, and theatrical shows. While the old Soviet army proverb says: in the army, though ugly, but monotonous.
In General, the assistance of the army-that's fine, but we should not lose sight of the main road. First, follow the normal financing of the State Army (Incidentally, budget is the same too, our taxpayers money). As part of the normal civil society possible. Second: to eliminate corruption in the armed forces. The task is not easy, but doable. It would be desire.
Only then will we have an army that is not ashamed to look, and another show. For example, the Russians. (Translated by Bing)
It does have a Ukranian/English option.
