Chronology of events
UPD: 02/10/2014 The Cabinet of Ministers was offered to close sites without a court decision, - State Entrepreneurship
The State Intellectual Property Office proposes a bill that would oblige providers to remove questionable content during the day out of court.
This is stated in the press release of the State Entrepreneurship.
The draft law "On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts on the Protection of Copyright and Related Rights on the Internet" provides that after receiving a complaint from the copyright holder, the state will inform providers that there is pirated content on a certain resource.
"At the same time, the applicant does not verify the accuracy of the information stated in the application, and a sufficiently notarized screen shot of such a web page. That is, without any legal grounds," the State Entrepreneur noted.
The project also provides that within one day the company should inform the site owner about the complaint. If he does not take measures to remove pirated content or does not file an objection to the claim of the copyright holder, the provider will be obliged to block or delete the content.
"For late blocking of the site, providers will be responsible for administrative responsibility, which provides for a fine of up to 17 thousand hryvnia," the bill says.
"Because of the significant number of contradictory Constitution of Ukraine, the Civil Code of Ukraine, the requirements of international legal acts of changes, the State Entrepreneurship Committee refused to approve this document," the press release says.
As noted, the experience of most developed countries in the world shows that the blocking of sites is usually carried out by a court decision.
At the same time, the project proposes to endow with such authority not even government bodies, but economic entities that provide services for website access to the Internet.
"The state enterprise categorically disagrees with the proposed editors and believes that the only reason for blocking the website should be a properly reasoned court decision," the press release says.
It is also noted that the absence of any liability of the applicant in case of extrajudicial blocking of websites will legitimize the mechanism for smoothly blocking "inconvenient" Internet resources.
“In addition, the adoption of the bill in the following edition: violates the right to spread information by the site owners and the right of site users to access information, contributes to abuse of the right to appeal; introduces a“ presumption of guilt ”: after the applicant’s application, the service can immediately, without checking the essence claims, block the address of the Internet, "- said State Entrepreneurship.
UPD: 02/10/2014 On the video of the execution of the Maydanovtsy they recognized one of the "Berkut people" (photo, video)
The lawyer believes that the peculiar manner of shooting of the employee of the special company "Berkut" speaks about the absence of the right hand brush
According to the site Today, Lawyer Evgenia Zakrevskaya published a video in the Ukrainian Pravda blog, which, in her opinion, may indicate the participation of Major "Berkut" Sadovnik in shooting at "maydanovtsy". Despite the fact that the video does not see the person shooting, the lawyer Zakrevskaya draws attention to the specific manner of shooting. The employee of "Berkut" shoots with his left hand, using his right as an emphasis. Moreover, in the video you can see that the shooter does not have the right hand.
As you know, Dmitry Sadovnik lost his right hand a few years ago as a result of an accident.
“Dmitry Sadovnik is an officer with a capital letter. He, by the way, in the Crimea handed over to a maroon beret and earned the right to wear it, despite the fact that he had a damaged right hand, or rather, it was practically not there,” April 2014 about the Gardener wrote one of the online publications.
"It may well be a coincidence. You never know, the Berkut people without a right hand in black uniform with yellow bandages on their sleeves could walk in the morning of February 20th on Institutskaya with a gun on the edge," a lawyer wrote in her blog on Ukrayinska Pravda.
We will remind, yesterday, the commander of a special forces company of a special-purpose militia regiment "Berkut" suspected of shooting people on the Maidan at the State Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine in Kiev Dmitry Sadovnik again did not appear in court where his case is being considered.
UPD: 02/10/2014 Obama ordered the Pentagon to send military to Ukraine
The first group of the American military recently sent to Ukraine. The corresponding order to the leadership of the Pentagon gave President Barack Obama. As noted in the US military, we are talking about "a group of serious specialists whose task is to help Ukrainian colleagues in rebuilding their army," reports The Washington Times.
Basically, as Colonel Steve Warren told reporters, the first group of the United States military in Kiev will be specialists in strategy and analytics. They should decide on the spot what kind of military assistance Ukraine needs from the United States in the fight against Russian terrorists supported by Vladimir Putin. This mission, they stressed in the US Department of Defense, is particularly relevant against the backdrop of global resentment caused by the terrorist act of Russian militants against a peaceful Malaysian aircraft, which caused the terrible death of people.
As clarified at the Pentagon, the mission of the US military in Ukraine is likely to be long-term. The US is interested in this Central European country strengthening its defense as efficiently as possible, given the aggressiveness of its neighbor. In particular, the top priority for American consultants is to cut off communications as soon as possible, according to which local separatists in the south-eastern regions of the country receive support from weapons, money, military equipment and fresh groups of Russian terrorists.
They don’t believe in the so-called “peace initiatives of Moscow” in Washington. And not only politicians and experts, but also military analysts.
I think that Mr. Putin is now looking for a way to save face and to avoid as much as possible an international investigation of the terrorist act against the Malaysian Boeing, ”said Steve Ganjard, president of the Avascent International expert center, in an interview with The Washington Post. - Most likely, he will now propose a cease-fire, for example, for six months or some other period. During this time, public opinion around the world will calm down, and after six months, Putin will re-initiate an armed confrontation.
A number of American experts, even without waiting for the conclusion of the advisers who are going to Kiev the other day, are already drawing conclusions about what kind of military assistance from the United States is necessary for Ukraine. In particular, the head of the Arms Control Brookings Institute, Stephen Peifer, stressed that the incident with the Malaysian Boeing indicates that the administration of Barack Obama has come the very time to send the Ukrainian army really the most modern, high-precision and deadly American weapons. In particular, as the analyst noted, "in order to keep the Russians at bay, our side must hand over light armor-piercing weapons and guided missile systems to the Ukrainian armed forces."
Recall that in the United States have taken care in advance about the legal support of direct military assistance to Ukraine. In particular, the Parliament has already passed in two readings a bill recognizing Ukraine as an ally of the United States, which will allow protecting it just as if it were a member of NATO. Similar agreements with the United States operate with Taiwan and South Korea, so that they successfully avoid attacks from China and the DPRK, respectively. For the new law to come into force, it remains only to adopt it in the third and final reading, after which the document must be signed by US President Barack Obama.
