Separatists kill seven Ukraine soldiers in heaviest loss for Kiev forces

“Pro-Russian separatists ambushed Ukrainian troops on Tuesday, killing seven in the heaviest loss of life for government forces in a single clash since Kiev sent soldiers to put down a rebellion in the country’s east.

In Kiev, Ukraine’s defense ministry and state security service said the troops were killed and seven others wounded when their armored column was ambushed near the town of Kramatorsk, one of several hot spots in the largely Russian-speaking east where the army has had scant success against the rebels.

About 30 rebels, who had taken cover among bushes along a river, attacked with grenade-launchers and automatic weapons near a village 20 km (12 miles) from Kramatorsk, the ministry said in a statement on its website.

”In all, as a result of the prolonged fighting, six members of the armed forces were killed. Eight soldiers were wounded, one of them seriously,” it said. The state security service (SBU) said later that the seriously wounded soldier had died while being taken to hospital.” Läs hela artikeln som också sammanfattar dagen på http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/05/13/us-ukraine-crisis-idUSBREA4C0PV20140513

Luhansk separatists say their chief wounded in assassination attempt

“The self-proclaimed Luhansk Republic’s second day of existence was marred by an assassination attempt on its leader Valery Bolotov, separatists announced on May 13. They accused the authorities in Kyiv of plotting the attack.

“Today at about 11 a.m. there was an assassination attempt on Valery Bolotov. He is wounded but there is no risk for his life or health,” said Vasily Nikitin, a spokesman of Luhansk separatists, adding that Bolotov lost a lot of blood but is recovering in a private clinic.

Nikitin said that Bolotov was shot in his car on his way to negotiations over the future of Luhansk Oblast.

Bolotov was one of the leaders of armed men who on April 6 captured the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) headquarters in Luhansk and later captured the regional administration building and other government offices in the city.

Since then, Bolotov proclaimed himself the “people’s governor” of Luhansk Oblast while Ukraine’s Prosecutor General opened three criminal cases against him for separatism.”

The Voice of Russia: May 11 referendums should be treated as signals of deep Ukraine statehood crisis

“Moscow believes that the May 11 referendums held in Ukraine’s Donetsk and Lugansk regions should be taken as confirmation of the depth of the crisis in Ukraine. ”The referendums recently held in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions of Ukraine should be perceived as a clear signal to Kiev indicating a deep crisis of mutual understanding, [a crisis] of Ukraine’s own statehood in the broad sense of the word,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement following a meeting between Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin and head of the European Union Delegation to Russia, Vygaudas Usackas

Grigory Karasin described the EU’s continuing sanctions policy against Russia as an outdated, overused approach that fails to help resolve serious political problems, but only serves to deepen disagreements further and hampers the joint search for a way out of the really critical situation in Ukraine,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

The issues of Ukraine’s state system should be discussed prior to the presidential election to be held in the country on May 25, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

”Moscow expects that, in accordance with the Geneva agreements of April 17 and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) roadmap given by [Swiss President, OSCE Chairperson-in-Office] Didier Burkhalter, that our EU and US partners will use their influence on the current Kiev authorities so that issues of the state system and respect of regions’ rights are discussed in the short term, prior to the election scheduled for May 25,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement posted on its website on Tuesday, Interfax reports.

SvD: Rysk politiker: Vi måste lämna Eurovision

En grupp ryska politiker föreslår att Ryssland och dess grannländer får en egen version av Eurovision song contest. I tävlingen skulle artister som årets Eurovisionsvinnare Conchita Wurst vara portförbjudna.

Länder som tillhörde det forna Sovjetunionen skulle i första hand få delta i tävlingen.

– Resultatet i årets Eurovisionstävling var den sista droppen, säger Valeri Rasjkin, vice ordförande för det kommunistiska partiet till Interfax enligt finländska nyhetsbyrån FNB.

– Vi måste lämna den här tävlingen. Vi kan inte tolerera den här gränslösa galenskapen.

SvD: Försvarsberedningen skjuter fram sitt betänkande

” Försvarsberedningen är så oenig att den misslyckas med att lämna betänkande i morgon. I sista stund tvingas beredningen arbeta ett dygn extra för att nå en uppgörelse om Sveriges försvar.

Den presskonferens som den inbjudit till på onsdagen skjuts fram ett dygn. Först under onsdagen väntas klarhet om beredningen kan lägga fram sitt betänkande ett dygn senare, på torsdag, då en ny presskonferens planeras.” http://www.svd.se/nyheter/inrikes/forsvarsberedningens-betankande_3555700.svd?sidan=4
