Reuters: More than 50 rebels killed as new Ukraine leader unleashes assault




Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine on the latest fact of armed aggression against Ukraine from the territory of the Russian Federation

“Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine expresses resolute protest pertaining to another breakthrough of an armed terrorist group into Ukrainian territory from the Russian side. Despite warnings passed on by Ukraine through diplomatic channels regarding concentration of up to 40 trucks with armed people on the border with Ukraine, Russian side did not assume any measures to prevent their breakthrough into the territory of Ukraine.

On May 27 around 4 am the convoy consisting of several trucks and passenger cars made an attempt to cross the state border of Ukraine in the area of Astakhove locality (Luhansk region).

The abovementioned actions were taking place at total inactivity of Russian border guards. Moreover, there is every ground to declare that Russian terrorists’ forwarding into Ukrainian territory is being organized and financed under Kremlin and Russian intelligence agencies’ control.

In fact, we are dealing with uncovered aggression against Ukraine from the Russian side, with exporting Russian terrorism into the territory of our country. At present our law enforcement officers in Eastern regions of Ukraine stand against skilled armed Russian mercenaries, who are ready to plunder, intimidate, torture and murder Ukrainian citizens.

The world is confident that Kremlin’s attempts to put their own responsibility for events in Eastern regions of Ukraine on the Ukrainian authorities and anti-terrorist operation forces are nothing but false and cynical propaganda.

Aggressive actions of Russia and Russia-subordinated collaborationists from the terrorist organizations “Donetsk People’s Republic” and “Luhansk People’s Republic” are another evidence of Kremlin not planning to implement Geneva agreements even after the world-recognized democratic presidential elections have been held in Ukraine.

We call upon the international community to take urgent and drastic measures to stop Russian aggression against Ukraine and global order. Continued attempts to reach out to Kremlin with hopes for any kind of constructive dialogue cost more human losses on the ground. Russian invader bears the sole responsibility for these deaths.

Concerted efforts are needed to make Kremlin stop terrorists and weapons supply into the territory of our state, withdraw Russian subversives from Ukraine in order to renew peace and stability in our country and the region.” http://mfa.gov.ua/en/press-center/comments/1460-zajava-mzs-ukrajini-shhodo-chergovogo-faktu-zbrojnoji-agresiji-proti-ukrajini-z-teritoriji-rosijsykoji-federaciji

As many as 45 Kremlin-backed insurgents killed in heavy fighting on May 26-27 in Donetsk

“A trip on May 27 to the morgue in Donetsk, the capital of Ukraine’s most populous oblast, confirms that the war against Kremlin-backed insurgents – the government would say terrorists – has intensified. A doctor counted 45 corpses. Most were separatist gunmen but at least two were civilian casualties.

However, Donetsk Mayor Oleskandr Lukyanchenko put the number at 40 people dead in the May 26 fighting, and an investigator in the city morgue gave an even lower figure of 33 people. He added that of the 43 injured that are in hospitals, eight are residents of Russia, eight are from Donetsk, others are from Russia-annexed Crimea, while the the home locations of 18 others haven’t been established.

Many of the killed Russian-backed fighters were riding together in a truck when they were struck from above by artillery or rocket-propelled grenades fired from a Ukrainian army helicopter. The truck was destroyed and flipped on its side. The truck bed contained pools of blood and bloody bandages were strewn about the area surrounding the truck, indicating that rebel fighters aboard had been previously wounded.

Vladyslav Seleznyov, the Ukrainian government spokesman for the anti-terrorist operation, confirmed during a May 27 press briefing that many armed ”terrorists,” were killed, but he provided no official number”

RT News: Up to 100 killed in Kiev military op, Donetsk E. Ukraine – anti-govt forces

“More than 50 self-defense fighters and as many civilians have been killed since Ukrainian troops stepped up their offensive in the region on Monday, according to the PM of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, Aleksandr Boroday.

“We’ve lost more than 50 self-defense fighters,” Boroday said, as cited by RIA Novosti. “Many of the casualties are a result of two Kamaz trucks having been shelled by the Ukrainian army. The trucks were driving the wounded from the battlefield near the airport. Around 15 people died there.”

Boroday spoke to journalists next to a morgue in Donestk where identification of the bodies is under way.

“Two of our Kamaz trucks were fired at from the air and from an ambush on the ground. Shooting the wounded runs contrary to all international conventions,” Boroday added.

He said the significant number of casualties could be explained by extensive use of air force by the Ukrainian military on Monday.

Chairman of the Donetsk People’s Republic Supreme council, Denis Pushilin, also estimated that around 100 people might have been killed by Ukrainian troops.

It’s still “impossible to pick up all of the dead bodies as snipers are shooting at anyone who tries to come near them,” Pushilin said.

Donetsk City Council, however, puts the number of casualties at 40, with the official statement released by its press office saying that ”two civilians and 38 fighters died.” Läs hela artikeln på http://rt.com/news/161592-donetsk-truck-grenade-killed/

ITAR-TASS: Curfew imposed in east Ukraine’s Donetsk

“Curfew will be imposed in the city of Donetsk, eastern Ukraine, within the next few hours, the press service of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic reported.

“From 8.00 pm local time public transport will be halted until the situation normalizes. Besides, curfew is imposed in Donetsk between 10.00 pm and 06.00 am,” a source from the press service said.

He said getting out within this period of time “without emergency is dangerous for life”. “One must always carry ID documents,” the source added.

Besides, the leadership of the self-proclaimed republic asks people not to live personal vehicles on the streets adjacent to administrative buildings” http://en.itar-tass.com/world/733597

The Moscow Times: Luhansk Rebels Send Reinforcements to Donetsk

“As Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday called for a halt to military action in eastern Ukraine, separatists from the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic reportedly headed to Donetsk to provide reinforcements.

”Our troops have already been sent to Donetsk and Slovyansk. We are not only helping with equipment, but also with people,” the head of the Luhansk republic, Valery Bolotov, told journalists on Tuesday, Rambler.ru reported.” http://www.themoscowtimes.com/news/article/luhansk-rebels-send-reinforcements-to-donetsk/500941.html

The Moscow Times: Ukraine Leaving CIS Shoots Down Kremlin’s Imperial Ambitions

“Ukraine’s announcement Tuesday that it is quitting the Commonwealth of Independent States would be the last nail in the coffin of the Kremlin’s Moscow-centered integration project built on the bones of the Soviet Union, analysts said.

Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry has filed paperwork on the country’s departure from the CIS with the country’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, acting ministry head Andrii Deshchytsia said, Itar-Tass reported.

Ukraine’s newly elected President Petro Poroshenko had not commented on the matter as of this story’s publication.

Russia has alternative integration schemes for the post-Soviet space, but in the absence of Ukraine, they are likely to remain opportunistic alliances whose members — mostly Central Asian nations — would be looking for Russian money but not strategic affiliation with Moscow, experts said.

”For a thinking man, a neo-Soviet Union without Ukraine is nonsense,” said independent political analyst Sergei Shelin.

However, Ukraine may yet backtrack on its decision to leave, given that it is party to numerous collective treaties with the CIS, said Konstantin Zatulin of the pro-government Institute of CIS Countries in Moscow.

The insurgency-plagued Ukraine, which had been due to chair the CIS throughout this year, resigned the chairmanship in March, shortly after Russia annexed Ukraine’s pro-Russian Crimea Peninsula.

Deputy Foreign Minister Vasily Nebenzya said in April that quitting the CIS would void 223 collective treaties Kiev has signed since the bloc’s inception in 1991.

The list is mostly low-level deals, but also includes a labor agreement that allows thousands of Ukrainians to work in Russia.

Ukraine is part of the free-trade zone deal also ratified by Belarus and Russia, Ukraine’s biggest trade partner with a bilateral turnover of $39 billion in 2013, according to official statistics.

Moscow has already attempted a ”customs war” with Ukraine earlier this year, tightening import rules, and has threatened to cancel the free trade regime altogether.” Läs hela artikeln på


Reuters: Swedish spy chief warns of rise of Islamist threat

“Sweden’s biggest security threat comes from around 200 Islamists in the country with the potential for involvement in militant attacks, including young people radicalised after joining the war in Syria, the state’s spy chief said.

Increasing Russian espionage and signs of ”war planning” from Moscow since the Ukraine crisis took second place in Sweden’s overall security assessment – although it did not see any increased immediate threat, Anders Thornberg said.”

“Thornberg said Sweden had seen increased Russian intelligence activity in the country since the Ukraine crisis.

”I would use the term ‘war planning’ against Sweden,” the SAPO head said, referring to agent recruiting and field operations. ”I think Russian intentions may be very long term and do not pose an increased threat in the immediate future, but it’s ongoing day after day, year after year.”

”They are planning for a worst case scenario in the future, they are planning because intelligence must continue in war time … they must hide their intelligence activities.”

There has been increasing talk from Swedish policymakers about whether to join NATO since Russia seized Crimea. Deputy Prime Minister Jan Bjorklund has called for a ”doctrinal shift” in defence policy.

”Russia is the only country in Sweden with full spectrum coverage. They have all the intelligence areas, politics, economics, industry, technology, military defence, dissidents… I think Russian espionage is more extensive than the general public in Sweden is aware of,” Thornberg said.”

SvD: Obama vill träna syriska rebeller

”USA vill låta amerikanska soldater träna ”moderata” syriska rebeller, i ett försök att minska al-Qaida-anknutna gruppers inflytande i det syriska inbördeskriget, skriver Wall Street Journal. Enligt tidningen är USA:s president Barack Obama på väg att godkänna ett nytt militärt träningsprogram som kommer att utöka den amerikanska inblandningen i kriget rejält. Man kommer också vidga stödet till de av Syriens grannländer som stödjer rebellerna.” Läs hela artikeln på http://www.svd.se/nyheter/utrikes/3604678.svd

DN: Osse-observatörer försvunna i Ukraina

”Organisationen för säkerhet och samarbete i Europa (Osse) har förlorat kontakten med ett av sina övervakningsteam i Donetskregionen i Ukraina. Gruppen försvann under ett rutinuppdrag på måndagskvällen. En av dem är dansk medborgare.

Det fyra man stora internationella teamet ska ha befunnit sig i närheten av staden Donetsk, där prorysk milis strider med ukrainska soldater.

Gruppen var ute på en rutinmässig patrullering öster om staden när Osse förlorade kontakten med den vid 18-tiden på måndagskvällen, lokal tid.” Läs hela artikeln på http://www.dn.se/nyheter/varlden/osse-observatorer-forsvunna-i-ukraina/

The Moscow Times: Russian Entrepreneur to Open Conchita Wurst Hair Salon in Moscow

“Whether they love her or loathe her, transexual Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst continues to inflame passion among Russians, with one fan now planning to open a Moscow-based salon in her name.

Serge Klimov, owner of a high-end beauty parlor in Moscow, is planning to set up a salon named after Wurst — a cross between a hair salon and a club, Izvestia reported Tuesday, citing the project’s legal representative, Irina Soloviyev.

Food and soft drinks will be available on the premises, and anyone who can produce a flawless rendition of Wurst’s Eurovision-winning song ”Fly Like a Phoenix” will be served free of charge, Soloviyev was quoted as saying.

So as to avoid falling foul of Russia’s gay propaganda law, which forbids the so-called promotion of nontraditional sexual relations to minors, entry will be granted only to those clients aged 18 years and older in possession of a membership card, Soloviyev added.

”As far as I know, there is only one gay-oriented hairdresser in Moscow at the moment, so that the niche is still free,” Izvestia cited Olga Chuvatova, head of consulting agency Salon Mechti, as saying.”
