It is one thing, when the Russian assets are officially nationalized in Ukraine, i.e. become the governmental property, by a court decision to compensate for the actual damage. It is quite another matter, when they are just forced to be sold to some financial industrial groups which have the opportunity to act with the help of institutions at greatly reduced prices...
Much will depend on the future scenario for the Russian economy – will its performance worsen or not. Now it has stabilized. If the fall resumes, then the Kremlin, willy-nilly, will consider leaving the "Donbass Russian Spring" project...
Each and every metallurgical group in the Russian Federation has its own capacities for the production of coke and even exports it.
So it turns out that the expropriation of the largest industrial enterprises of the Donbass will lead to their ultimate degradation. And it will in any case be the only real result of the current PR action.
Ukrainian oligarchs suffer from the war in the Donbass in their own way – constantly living in safe Geneva, London and Vienna. They do not know what is to hide under fire in cellars for months, to leave your own home forever and go, in fact, to nowhere, to lose your near and dear ones from the explosion of a mine or a stray bullet. However, oligarchs suffer financial losses from this officially unrecognized war - and money for them is always in the first place.
The major case investigator of the Prosecutor General's Office Yuriy Kryvobok has specified the greatest amount by prosecutors - $ 2.612 million, while the Deputy Head of the Prosecutor General's Office Anatolii Matios GPU has $ 1.715 million. Y.Lutsenko himself has "modest" $ 804 thousand
I asked my husband: "We grew up with songs of Jura Shatunov and perhaps will die with them as well. What do you think?" He said: "It is possible, because the Russian media vigorously promote the message: it is considered that the period from 1991 to 2000 didn’t exist, it was a mistake. And in 2000 "a father of all Russia", "the savior of the world" came to power, and from that moment a new countdown began"
Coal “schemes” of the Family are still working today, two years later after Maidan. Moreover, – recently Yanukovych’s coal companies, in fact, became monopolists on the market of coal beneficiation! All this leads to the conclusion that the schemes of the Family have passed under the control of the Family-II. There is no other explanation of what is happening.
Perhaps, Tornado case was made closed not even because the investigation has no evidence, but the process may release facts that the General Prosecutor's Office wants to have, but doesn’t want to disclose? Maybe, Tornado case is a leash around the neck of Avakov and some other politicians?
Either then they lied, or residents’ interest in the creation of their "states" fell by three times in the "DPR" and twelve times in the "LPR". By the way, a nihilistic attitude of the residents of the occupied territories to "democracy demonstrations" is clearly seen in the Internet resources of the puppet "republic" and social networks...
The gas issue will determine the future of Ukrainian-Russian relations soon. Termination date of 10-year "contract of the century" signed in January 2009 between Naftogaz of Ukraine and Gazprom is approaching day by day. The desire to prolong the favourable terms will force Russian President Vladimir Putin to seek political leverage on official Kiev. They may use either a carrot or a stick. But they are likely to use both...
But then you have to understand what’s the price: based on the above mentioned examples, bloodshed in the country will last at least 30 years. Meanwhile, when you compare Donbass conflict with the ones above, the degree of conflict is way lower in our case.It is the very reason to hope that we can end everything peacefully. And much faster.
How does Akhmetov’s plant cooperate with the DPR? Why did Plotnitsky yell at the "Minister"? Imitation of primaries ... This and other issues in Sergey Garmash’s Occupation author’s radio programme
Zakharchenko’s strategy of the DPR development. Why militants are doomed to fight. Hello to Akhmetov from Zakharchenko. This and other issues in Sergey Garmash’s Occupation author radio programme.
He left everything: the house, the graves of relatives and then his own factory. The businessman did not want to continue work in the city full of flags of another country. He decided to reboot his business beyond the occupation and he could not imagine difficulties he would face. "The current government prefers to support the business on the occupied territory," - assured Dmitriy. Nevertheless, he decided to fight
One can distinguish five groups out of the variety of volunteer life of the "Donetsk People's Republic". These are religious communities; organization engaged in distributing the assistance of international humanitarian agencies; civil activists; volunteer groups set up due to ideological propaganda of the "DPR"; and volunteers from the Russian Federation
Will the DPR and LPR be united? How does Zakharchenko see the main results of his two-year "struggle"? Who are the heroes of the "DPR"? - You can hear answers to these and other topical questions of the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions in the latest Sergey Garmash’s radio programme "Occupation".
"In my point of view, it means two things. Firstly, we have too many law enforcement agencies, they have too much power and receive too much money. Secondly, the MSS is degrading as a structure," - said Purgin. He complained that they hardly managed to celebrate the recent anniversary of the Donetsk-Krivoy Rog Republic in the DPR and celebration of the Day of Russian Unity was cancelled in 2015.
There is a process of replacing heads of "2014 wave" with officials with experience who before the war were closely associated with the Party of Regions or have family ties with the leaders of the "republic".Information about some of the "republican" appointees is extremely scarce, but we have tried to demonstrate who are sitting in the "power" offices of the "DPR" and talk about some interesting facts and intricacies of their biographies.
Hungry for money employees are looking for something that is easy to be lost during the search. There are no witnesses, as a rule, during the search. If they do not find what they need, they begin to search anything for which they can get a ransom. There were cases when they exposed drugs to young boys, girls, understanding the psychology of the behaviour of the parents in this situation and their further actions. They ask for $ 2000 - $ 3000
And the general atmosphere of the city does not encourage you to walk after 22:00. Do not forget that, despite the outward friendliness of the waterfront or the central boulevards, now there are both our military and civilians (including I. Kozlovsky whose destiny is still unknown) in the basement of the "MSS" and no one likes jokes given articles of the Criminal Code with the death penalty for espionage
In the so-called "DPR" warlords and "ideological" were neutralized not not massively and loudly. However, as Igor Plotnitsky recently stated "if you do not write about it, it does not mean that such things do not exist in the DPR"… Alexander Zakharchenko just prefers to do it without theatrical effects. However, Donetsk militants showed violent showdowns trying to establish control over financial flows and redistribute the spheres of influence.
Russian authorities spared no expense for Crimea and prepared a real celebration: fireworks, concerts, mass celebrations, demonstrations ... And only when they woke up the next morning, on March 17th, the locals began to feel the effects of their exultation: frozen bank cards and accounts, crowds of people began to buy massively home appliances and other products and the worst thing is uncertainty in the future
"Vendetta" partisans’ activities also revealed machinations of the head of the Communist Party Petro Simonenko who "gave" the building of the Luhansk regional communist party to communist-militants from Russia. They also posted the payroll of Plotnitsky’s personal guards as a "pleasant" bonus for Luhansk separatist militants.
