UN Security Council Discusses Ukraine

The United Nations Security Council held another meeting on Ukraine on June 24. Formally the session was devoted to the report on the situation in Ukraine to be presented by Mr. Taye Zerihun, Assistant-Secretary-General for Political Affairs...  The Western members of Security Council never made any real attempt to tackle the problem of Ukraine and the United Nations Security Council’s sessions become more like routine propaganda stunts... It’s getting harder to conceal the scale of the tragedy taking place in the south-east of Ukraine. It is becoming a tall order even for those members of United Nations Security Council who sincerely side with the international criminals waging war against civilians. Sooner or later they will have to put the Russian draft resolution to the vote.

Moscow demands OSCE take measures to free journalists detained by Kiev

Moscow has called on the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) to take measures to free the two Russian journalists captured near the town of Kramatorsk, eastern Ukraine. Russia strongly condemns the detention of LifeNews journalists Oleg Sidyakin and Marat Saichenko by Kiev forces in the city of Kramatorsk, the country’s permanent representative to the OSCE, Andrey Kelin, said.

Ukraine: Tycoon Rinat Akhmetov Creates Puzzle

...There was a leak into media about Steinmeier meeting Rinat Akhmetov on May 13 during his short visit to Ukraine. The information was scarce. The Foreign Minister’s schedule was pretty busy including the meetings with Alexander Turchinov, acting speaker and president of Ukraine, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, acting prime minister of the country, the OSCE team and also a short stop in Odessa. The very fact that Steinmeier found time for an informal meeting with the richest Ukrainian tycoon displays how important it was for Berlin. It’s worth to note that the meeting was held away from radar screen. The German Ministry of Foreign Affairs statements omitted the fact, but some believe the event was the main part of the tour...

The OSCE in Ukraine: How to Make a European Country into a New Afghanistan

Officials from the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, who modestly remained silent during the coup d’état in Ukraine and have not said a word about the tragedies in Odessa and Mariupol, have begun to raise a storm of activity around the «road map» for Ukraine. Some provisions of this document (it has not been presented to the general public, which, according to Sergei Lavrov, is the fault of Kiev and Washington) were discussed during negotiations between Swiss president and chairman of the OSCE Didier Burkhalter and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on May 7. However, on May 11 in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions of Ukraine referendums were held which confirmed the choice of the people in favor of the state sovereignty of the new republics which have arisen there. A fundamentally new political situation has taken shape...

Who Does Steinmeier Support Talking About Monopoly on Use of Force?

Could further escalation of violence in Ukraine be prevented? Until now the country has been gradually plunging into the quagmire of military confrontation. Death toll keeps on growing with each passing day. On May 13 German Foreign Minister Dr. Frank-Walter Steinmeier said one of the goals was to restore the state monopoly on the use of force. It’s an ambiguous statement against the background of independence declared by Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics...

Hope Emerging For Ukraine

The implementation of Moscow May 7 agreement may lead to a settlement. There is a long way to go. The ball is on the side of Kiev which must stop the punitive actions against its own people in the south-eastern part of the country... Those who are pursued by Neo-Nazi for their support of Ukraine becoming a federal state and Russian Ukrainians defending their right to speak their language – they all cherish hopes that the Putin - Burkhalter summit laid a foundation for peaceful settlement of Ukrainian crisis. The President Putin’s comments evoked appropriate reaction on the part of business circles. The ruble has significantly grown in relation to the euro. It means business gave the Swiss President a chance to catch up in popularity with President Putin. A few months ago the Russian President was called by Western media number one politician of the world. It testifies to the fact that they do recognize the important role Russia plays in European and global politics.

West, Ukraine: First Step to Recognizing Reality. Will it Go Further?

On May 6, US State Secretary John Kerry met Catherine Ashton, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs & Security Policy/Vice-President of the European Commission. The issue of Ukraine was high on the agenda... First of all, Washington should use its leverage and exert influence on the Kiev interim government to make it stop further escalation of tension and use of force.  The process will not move ahead till the junta conducts the «anti-terrorist» operation which, in fact, is a punitive action against civilians. It has already resulted in the death toll measured in dozens, like in Odessa, for instance. Right now the troops are attacking Slavyansk and Mariupol.  There will be no get ahead till Western politicians make the Kiev regime understand that the use of force in response to lawful demands of population is a  way to dead end...

Ukraine vs. Russia in the International Courts

In mid-April the secretary of the International Criminal Court (ICC) reported that the Government of Ukraine had lodged a declaration accepting its jurisdiction over alleged crimes committed on its territory from November 21, 2013 to February 22, 2014. Several days later, the Prosecutor of the ICC, F. Bensouda, decided to open a preliminary examination into the situation in Ukraine. In connection with this a number of important international law issues have arisen... In this case the collection of lawyers called the "International Criminal Court" refuse point blank to see that those who call themselves the government of Ukraine are nothing of the sort. That is, the ICC has become a party in the conflict in Ukraine. This fact deprives the institution of all signs of independence and impartiality...

Simonovic's Report on the Situation in Ukraine: Predetermined Bias

...Bravo, Simonovic! You have done a good job for your patrons! The masters are pleased! But there still remains the question: how can a UN official who is responsible for the state of human rights justify violations of human rights? And finally, one last question, but not addressed to Simonovic: can such a person represent the United Nations on issues of human rights at all?

The OSCE in Ukraine and Russian Spring

In connection with the deepening crisis in Ukraine, representatives of several OSCE missions have famously arrived in the country. On 21 April, I had occasion to talk with two long-term observers with the OSCE Election Observation Mission, Anthony Robinson (Great Britain) and Lester Margosian (USA)... I got the impression that the mission is occupied with serious analytical work... The objectives and possible outcomes of this work are, as yet, unclear.  One thing is clear, however. This is the first time that Europe and the US have dealt with Russians in Ukraine so attentively, and this is a result of the fact that in the southeast of Ukraine, they are calling for a ‘Russian Spring’.

US ‘Joke’ Intel Belies Knowledge of Real Culprits in Downed Jet

Seriously, is that it? US national intelligence presented its «evidence» this week on the shoot-down of the Malaysian airliner over Ukraine. Anyone waiting to see a «smoking gun» implicating Russia and pro-Russian militia in eastern Ukraine in the disaster should have been left underwhelmed by the supposed American «killer evidence». Less smoking gun and more like one of those circus pistols that pop out a joke flag emblazoned with the word «Bang!»... So, on one hand, Russia is implicated, while on the other hand «there is no direct link»...  It seems incredible that the US does not have any images of what really happened on that horrific Thursday afternoon. Unless of course, the US is deliberately suppressing that information  to suit a preordained narrative, aimed precisely at trying to implicate Russia over the disaster...
