Acting President of Ukraine hemsida: O. Turchynov: Solution to the situation in the East of Ukraine can be found solely in the legal field

“Solution to the situation in the East of Ukraine can be found solely in the legal field. It was stated by Acting President, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov on Thursday while opening the plenary session.

”Yesterday the first stage of nationwide panel discussion, the main task of which is to find understanding, start a dialogue with representatives of local government, workers of culture, scientists, citizens of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, those willing to find a way out of the crisis situation within the legislation and the Constitution, was held. Solution to the situation lies solely in the legal field,” the Acting President noted.

Statement of the MFA regarding the “Aviadarts-2014” military exercise

“In accordance with the official web-site of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, on May 21 – 25, 2014 the military exercise “Aviadarts-2014” of the Russian Air Force will be held in the vicinity of the cities of Lipetsk, Voronezh and Ryazan. Referring to sources in the Russian defense ministry, a number of news agencies have reported that the exercise training will include ”the combat use of missiles, bombs and artillery ammunition for the elimination of ground targets, as well as air defense penetration of the imaginary enemy.”

The plans of the Russian Federation cause deep concern in Ukraine. Taking into account the scenario of  “Aviadarts-2014”, the military assets involved, as well as the battle use of modern armaments close to the Ukrainian border by the very nation that has already committed an act of aggression against Ukraine and illegally annexed an integral part of our territory, we consider these actions by Russia as still another provocation by force, an undisguised attempt to increase tension on the borders with Ukraine and in the region as a whole.

Russia conducting military exercises near the Ukrainian border on Ukraine’s presidential election day testifies to the realization of the continuous efforts by Russia to further destabilize the situation in, inter alia, the Eastern regions of Ukraine, as well as to the brutal pressure being put on the Ukrainian people.

We categorically demand from the Russian Federation to cease the  practice of provoking instability, to withdraw formations of the Russian Armed Forces from Ukraine’s border and to fulfill the obligations it undertook in accordance with the Geneva Ukraine Accord.” http://mfa.gov.ua/en/press-center/comments/1325-zajava-mzs-ukrajini-shhodo-provedennya-rosijsykoju-federacijejuvijsykovih-navchany-aviadarts-2014

”I want to inform you that a masked base of terrorists was completely destroyed this night near Kramatorsk within the frames of ATO. Fortified locality of terrorists near Slovyansk was also attacked and destroyed this night, safety haven expanded within 5-km radius of TV tower”, he reported today during the morning session of the Parliament.” http://24tv.ua/home/showSingleNews.do?turchynv_masked_base_of_terrorists_near_kramatorsk_is_destroyed&objectId=443132&lang=en

The pro-autonomy militia of Donbass region in eastern Ukraine made the statement on Wednesday.

”If the armored vehicles are not pulled back, the roadblocks of the so-called legitimate authorities are not removed, I will have enough power and means – the commander supported me today – to destroy and burn everything. Reconnaissance and sabotage groups are ready to move and some are steady,” deputy commander of the pro-autonomy militia of Donbass, Sergey Zdrilyuk, told RIA Novosti.

“I give 24 hours for them to withdraw all troops, all forces,” he added.


ITAR-TASS: Russian Foreign Ministry voices concern over deterioration of situation in Ukraine

“Russia’s Foreign Ministry has expressed concern over tensions in Ukraine. “The internal situation in Ukraine continues deteriorating,” the ministry’s spokesman, Alexander Lukashevich said on Thursday.

“Kiev’s tenacious unwillingness to start national reconciliation grossly violates the Geneva agreements. The final stage of ‘punitive operation’ proves this,” he said.

Moscow urges Kiev to come to senses and stop the operation against its own people, Lukashevich said.” http://en.itar-tass.com/russia/731805

ITAR-TASS Ukrainian military simulate gunfight near Kramatorsk — self-defense militia

“Ukrainian military “simulated armed clashes” against a self-defense group on the outskirts of the city of Kramatorsk in the Donetsk region, a representative of voluntary guard of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic told ITAR-TASS on Thursday.

“A ten-vehicle-strong armored column under the cover of six helicopters entered the township of Solntsevo” and the entry was followed by brisk fire involving large-caliber automatic weapons,” he said.

The man who witnessed the events said “they were shooting at nowhere, in the sky and into the open field as there aren’t any woods nearby.” Upon hearing the shooting, locals “took shelter in cellars.”

“There were no self-defense fighters in this area, to say nothing of bases,” he said. http://en.itar-tass.com/world/731818

Idag kom Försvarsberedningens rapport. Försvaret av Sverige – Starkare försvar för en osäker tid

Försvarsberedningen överlämnar sin försvarspolitiska rapport till regeringen

”Den 15 maj 2014 överlämnade Försvarsberedningen den försvarspolitiska rapporten. Försvarsberedningen fick, efter beslut av försvarsministern, förlängd tid för arbetet med rapporten i syfte att komplettera arbetet med en säkerhetspolitisk bedömning utifrån vårens händelseutveckling i Ukraina.

Försvarsberedningen anser att den enskilt viktigaste uppgiften i den kommande försvarsinriktningsperioden efter 2015 är att öka den operativa förmågan i krigsförbanden och att säkerställa den samlade operativa förmågan i Försvarsmakten. Det är det övergripande syftet med samtliga förslag som presenteras i den försvarspolitiska rapporten.

Den försvarspolitiska rapporten kommer tillsammans med den säkerhetspolitiska rapporten från 2013 att ligga till grund för regeringens kommande försvarspolitiska inriktningsproposition.”

SvD: Försvaret svänger tillbaka på en rad punkter

Bakom krutröken i drabbningen om pengar till försvaret så innehåller försvarsberedningens rapport en rad nyheter. Efter tio år sker nu en återgång för svenskt försvar. SvD:s Mikael Holmström listar åtta punkter där pendeln nu svänger tillbaka.

Beredningens förslag ska beslutas av riksdagen 2015 – men delar av det har likheter med hur det var förr.

Under kalla kriget hade Sverige ett stort territoriellt existensförsvar. Men från 1996 blev fokus i stället ett mindre försvar inriktat på internationella insatser. Rader av förband lades ner, exempelvis på Gotland. Kustartilleriregementet i Fårösund försvann i försvarsbeslutet år 2000 medan beslutet 2004 om nedläggning av pansarförbandet i Visby fullbordade demilitariseringen av ön.

Nu börjar pendeln svänga tillbaka på en hel rad punkter. Läs den mycket intressanta sammanställningen i http://www.svd.se/nyheter/inrikes/nyhetsstart-forsvarsberedningen-svdse_3564630.svd

SvD analys: M söker strid om försvaret

Socialdemokraterna och regeringen enades om det mesta i försvarsberedningen, men inte om allt. Efteråt ville Socialdemokraterna tona ned konflikten, och Moderaterna blåsa upp den: båda tror att det ska hjälpa dem att vinna valet.
