17 maj Strelkov gör mystiskt uttalande

Dagens intressantaste nyhet var att Strelkov (military commander of pro-Russian militias in Slovyansk) gör ett uttalande på Youtube. Han beklagar där att han inte får tag på några frivilliga att ställa upp i kampen mot Ukrainas militär. Han läser upp en text, och tittar knappt in i kameran. Än så länge finns det bara översättning på Twitter. Här nedan ser du filmen i ett bildspel tillsammans med de 50 olika tweeten. Än så länge är enda översättningen detta bildspel.

Man kan spekulera i varför han gör detta uttalande, då det visar hur svårt det är att få frivilliga att ställa upp för deras sak. Då det mesta som görs från Ryssland är välplanerat så är frågan varför han gör uttalandet, och vad det ger för framtida alternativ för Ryssland. Att de skulle ge upp sin kamp att ta över östra Ukraina tror jag inte på. ”Tvingas” de nu ta hjälp av Rysslands egen militär, då de ju trots allt måste skydda sitt folk…

Crimean Tatars to still hold a meeting in Simferopol city center on Sunday, Dzhemilev states

“Leader of the Crimean Tatar people, MP Mustafa Dzhemilev believes that Crimean Tatars are going to hold a meeting on the day of deportation anniversary in the streets of Simferopol, despite prohibitions.

Dzhemilev commented to LIGABiznesInform on Mejlis’s decision to cancel all mass events during May 17-18.

I believe people will hold a meeting in the city center of Simferopol any way, the majority intends to. Mejlis simply cannot guarantee their safety, therefore, Mejlis will officially not hold any mourning events in Simferopol city center. No one is saved from provocations, Mustafa Dzhemilev said.

The MP cannot come to Crimea because the ban to enter the territory of peninsula was not lifted yet.

Dzhemilev promised to inform all international institutions and human rights organizations concerning the situation with Crimean Tatars.

It is gross violation of Crimean Tatars’ rights. Moreover, it contradicts claims of the President Putin to protect all rights of Crimean Tatars in Crimea, MP reminded.” http://24tv.ua/home/showSingleNews.do?crimean_tatars_to_still_hold_a_meeting_in_simferopol_city_center_on_sunday_dzhemilev_states&objectId=443944&lang=en

“The so-called Prime Minister of the self-proclaimed “Donetsk People’s Republic” Oleksandr Boroday has told that illegal government of the region would ask to join Russia in the nearest future.

He added that such proposal to Russia would be officially prepared in the nearest future.

“Everything will be done urgently,” separatist said.

Boroday has added that DPR will request the Russian Federation to establish diplomatic relations with the so-called “republic”.” http://24tv.ua/home/showSingleNews.do?selfproclaimed_dpr_will_ask_to_be_annexed_by_russia_in_the_nearest_term&objectId=443876&lang=en

Luhansk separatist leader Bolotov free in Ukraine after suspicious ‘shootout’

“Despite being under criminal investigation, Valery Bolotov, leader of self-proclaimed Luhansk Republic, managed over this week to cross the border with Russia and come back to Ukraine, according to reports by both the insurgents and country’s border service.

Bolotov, who called himself the “people’s governor,” was reportedly shot on May 13 in assassination attempt and had to travel to Russia for medical treatment.

Early on May 17, when crossing into Ukraine, he was arrested by border guards on an arrest warrant issued by a Luhansk court. He is under criminal investigation for promoting separatism. But Bolotov’s allies, who call themselves the Army of Southeast, said they managed to fight to win his release.

There were no reports about killed or wounded on both sides, stirring suspicions that there was any fight at all. “There are no signs proving that there was “severe fight” near Dovzhansky checkpoint as a result of which Bolotov was allegedly released,” Dmytro Tymchuk, military blogger wrote on his Facebook. “There were no signs of presence of big number of gunmen as well.”

Radio Free Europe: No surprises that the election next week, in some parts, is going to be hard to organize

“Ukraine’s Central Election Commission says it may be impossible to organise next weekend’s presidential election in the country’s east if the government fails to ensure security in regions overrun by pro-Russian separatists.

The commission said on May 17 that it could not prepare for the vote in parts of the east because of threats and ”illegal actions” by the separatists.

It said officials have been unable to start preparing for the May 25 vote in six constituencies in Donetsk region and another six in Luhansk region where the separatists have declared their own independent republics.” http://www.rferl.org/contentlive/ukraine-live-blog/25382555.html (kl 21.36)

Statement of the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine regarding the second national unity “round table”

“The second all-Ukrainian ”round table” within the launched national unity dialogue was held in the city of Kharkiv on 17 May 2014.

This dialogue shows the willingness of the Government of Ukraine to discuss openly the most pressing needs of our society, as well as common commitment to national consensus and inclusiveness of the widest responsible political and social circles of Ukraine.

It is also an expression of consistent implementation by Ukraine of the Geneva agreements of 17 April 2014.

While Ukraine and other participants of the Geneva process are doing their best to protect human life and ensure de-escalation of the situation in the eastern regions of Ukraine, Russia remains the only one among the parties of the Geneva accord, which exerted not a single effort to this end.

Russia continues to cynically destabilize the situation. Promises of president Vladimir Putin were not backed up by real deeds. Russia has been deliberately concentrating troops at the border with Ukraine, supporting and coordinating the activities of terrorist groups, refusing to condemn murders, tortures and occupation of administrative buildings by these terrorists, as well as increasing aggressive rhetoric against the Ukrainian state, never ending wave of lies and propaganda.

It is clear that by these actions the Kremlin is trying to prevent a truly national dialogue in Ukraine, make obstacles for implementing of the chosen democratic reforms and undermine the possibility of presidential elections on May 25.

We call on the international community to objectively evaluate the processes of restoration of mutual understanding and security in our country, not to succumb to Russian propaganda and lies, as well as to take all necessary measures against the Russian leadership in a decisive, coordinated and consolidated manner in order to stop the aggressor and not let him disrupt the right of the Ukrainian people to vote freely at the 25 May presidential elections.

It called on acting President Oleksandr Turchynov and the government to take urgent action to ensure security.

Separatists in Donetsk and Luhansk have said they will not allow the May 25 election to take place in their regions.” http://mfa.gov.ua/en/press-center/comments/1344-zajava-mzs-ukrajini-shhodo-drugogo-zagalynonacionalynogo-kruglogo-stolu-nacionalynoji-jednosti

Ministry of Defence of Ukraine: Situation around Slovyansk under control of Ukrainian military

The Ukrainian military continue to control the situation around Slovyansk. The town is surrounded by block posts. There are still captured several buildings: particularly, municipal council, municipal directions of the Ministry of Interior of Ukraine and the Security Service of Ukraine, city court, ‘Ukrtelecom’ office and central post office. There are still 27 barricades and block posts of separatists in the town.

The militants use the standard tactics of terrorist groups – they equip their gun posts in the flats of local population trying to provoke the ATO (Anti-Terror Operation) participants for shooting which might result in victims among civilians.

The Ukrainian servicemen cleared up the area near TV Tower. The safety zone is enlarged up to 5 km around the TV Tower.

The separatists activated the propaganda aimed to discredit the ATO participants.

DN: Ryska kosacksoldaterna: Vi har deltagit i striderna

”Ryska kosack­soldater, medborgare i Ryssland, deltar aktivt i dödliga strider i östra Ukraina. Mycket tyder på att de har ledande roller i det lågintensiva inbördeskriget.

DN har träffat några av dem i rebellstaden Kramatorsk, där de bekräftar sin del i orolig­heterna.

Moskva förnekar det, men Kievregeringen och utländska observatörer är övertygade om att många av upprorsmännen i östra Ukraina i själva verket är rysk militär som tagit sig in i landet.

Separatisternas soldater brukar själva antingen försäkra att de är vanliga invånare i Donbass eller också vägra tala med utländska journalister.

Men utanför stadshuset i Kramatorsk, en av de städer norr om Donetsk där proryska krafter har tagit över, möter DN några soldater som öppet medger att de har kommit hit från Ryssland.”
