UPD: 10/04/2014 # Isotria of Crimea
"TO MILITARY TECHNOLOGY AND GREEN PERSONS ON THE STREETS ALREADY STILL ACCEPTED TO BE USED ..."
My house is twenty minutes from the sea, and I go for a walk with the dog on the beach. Between the beach and the village where I live, the Kerch-Feodosiya highway passes. Today, when my dog and I approached the road, a military fuel truck passed by. Well, drove and drove. Constantly drive.
Then I stood at the window on the veranda with a cup of tea and watched a military helicopter fly over the village. Well, flying and flying. Every day fly.
Then I went on business to the city. People walk around the city in a new form for my eyes, dark green and speckled. They just walk, talk among themselves, buy ice cream and sweet water ... Well, go and walk.
By the military equipment and green men on the streets already gradually begin to get used to. Perhaps this is a defensive reaction of the body. Because if you do not get used, you can go crazy.
Many of my friends complain that they are called by relatives / friends / acquaintances and ask in horror: “How do you live there? !! This is a nightmare that you have going on there !!! ”And my friends are already tired of convincing everyone that everything is calm and nothing has changed at all.
Yes, of course, absolutely. Nothing changed. If your whole life consists of eating, drinking, sleeping and going to the toilet - yes, nothing has changed. The rest of the superstructure, which distinguishes man from animals, staggers, cracks at the seams and begins to crumble.
For the first three weeks I lived with the constant feeling that all the walls in my inner world were crumbling
I'm a freelancer. This is not only the embodiment of the dream of office plankton of the absence of superiors and their own work schedule. It is also customers for distant lands, online accounts, bank transfers, purchases from online stores and courier services. The collapse of the banking system was a deafening blow for me.
First there was the blocking of the Privatbank card, and I lost the possibility of cashless payments. The terminals do not work, the only loophole left Web-money with a nightmarish course 120 rubles = 50 hryvnia. Asking to replenish webmoney accounts for relatives in Kiev, because I myself can not. Began the delights of life in debt.
Then there was a mess with remittances. My customer spent a week rushing around Moscow trying to transfer money to me. By some miracle she succeeded. Now the next payment is next in line, and I am already inventing clever schemes for transferring money through another city, to the address of the person from whom I buy materials, because you can forget about normal settlements with online stores. While pulling on old stocks. What will I do then, I do not know.
My acquaintances agreed with the online store, their supplier, to send them a package with some garbage, in which the envelope is hidden. It is clear that according to the rules of New Mail it cannot be done. And what are the options?
It is surprising in general that New Mail works, although it should not. Ukrposhta announced the termination of receiving packages. And I have two orders in work - one to Moscow, the other to Belgorod. One can only hope that everything will settle down while I finish them. Otherwise - even carry me personally. By the way, the customs at Perekop have already been delivered.
With this bank-postal noose around your neck, you only do what you invent ways to turn out of knots.
I drive to downtown shopping past the passport office. Near the door - a constant crowd. People are crowded, all heads are turned in one direction. They remind me of flocks of sheep on the mountainside of Georgia. Sheep, too, so - in a dense handful and all go in the same direction. I pass by the passport office and ponder the fact that most people are about the essence, the same flock of sheep that really do not care who their shepherd is. If only the grass on the pasture was more succulent and a koshara in case of rain. They say, “We want stability,” “If only it were calm,” and in a tight handful they move to where the shepherd drives them, for example, to the passport office. They have not yet realized that the promised grass will not be greener, and that the roof in the skewer is full of holes. When they understand, they begin to indignantly meck. But only who will listen to them. All that the shepherd needs, they have already passed through.
And now they are happy. Good shepherds built a zagonchik for them, defended them from terrible Bendera wolves, who almost came to shoot everyone. And because of their fence, they are waiting for the promised freebie in the form of an increase in pensions four times.
They - in the pens. And I am in a cage.
The new minister of resorts and tourism of Crimea said the other day that "The introduction of any restrictions on the issuance of visas to EU countries for residents of Crimea will not affect their rest. If such restrictions are introduced, Crimeans can have a rest at home." And we dreamed of going to Spain. Now we have a great alternative: for kebabs in the next tree planting. And what? Too rest.
Now I look at the world through the bars of the lattice. It remains only to be glad that this is not a solid wall, and I can look at the world through the window of the Internet.
On the Internet, an endless stream of information, how life is deteriorating in the Crimea, how the upcoming season falls, how our new thugs leaders lead the marasmus pearls. And under these posts - malevolent comments, they say, you, Crimeans, have chosen, so now you can rake. The trouble is that those who threw the crowd on the referendum, these comments will not read. They will be read by people like me who did not choose IT. We just put before the fact. We had no free choice.
First, I tightened the financial noose. Then they took away the dream. But the most important thing - they took away my freedom. Freedom to choose to live as I want. Come where I want. Think what I want. It’s more than just working without a boss and on your own schedule.
Yes, only freedom - a little thing demanded. Free mustangs are always much smaller than stupid sheep.
UPD: 10/04/2014 In Ukraine, the Russian “tourist” was traveling with radio call signs, mobile phones and rocket launchers
This morning, at the Khorobichi railway checkpoint, border guards of the Chernihiv detachment, together with customs officers, discovered a difficult Russian “tourist”.
A Russian citizen was heading to Ukraine by the “Polotsk-Simferopol” train. During the test, he found an unusual set of things. A resident of the Bryansk region carried 2 military tickets of the USSR, 3 rocket launchers and 17 shots to them, 5 unassembled mobile phones, 3 gas cartridges, 35 Russian rubles of the Russian Federation. The most interesting find of the workers of the checkpoint was the radio call sign tables, which were also found in the man.
The Russian was invited to the border unit to talk. It turns out where and for what purpose the person was heading. About him informed the competent law enforcement agencies.
UPD: 10/04/2014 SBU detained a 22-year-old Russian spy with a firearm
The SBU detained a 22-year-old Russian citizen who was carrying out the task of special services to destabilize the situation in the southern regions of Ukraine. This is stated in the press service of the SBU.
According to the department, 22-year-old Maria Koleda arrived in Kherson on April 4. According to her, this is her ninth trip to Ukraine. During April 5-6, the foreigner held a series of meetings with leaders and activists of pro-Russian movements in Kherson, and also visited selected regional centers of the region to monitor the situation on the ground.
And on April 7, Koleda took direct part in the clashes near the Nikolaev Regional State Administration, during which she used firearms. According to her, while she injured three people. After these events, the spy, hiding, returned to the Kherson region.
“The operatives found that on April 8, Koleda reported to her curator in the Russian Federation about the presence of“ unlimited ”improvised improvised explosive devices among the“ activists ”and the agreement reached on obtaining small arms. She also reported on the preparation of two sabotage groups (7 people from Kherson and 6 people from the city of Novaya Kakhovka) to be sent to Donetsk to take part in the riots, "the press service said.
Also in the SBU said that Koleda was instructed to find out the state of armament of police officers on the border of Crimea with the mainland of Ukraine and the possibility of getting out of the ARC, legally or bypassing the established checkpoints, persons whom the SBU prohibited entry into Ukraine.
During the detention, a traumatic pistol, converted to the firing of live ammunition and methodical recommendations for the preparation of sabotage groups, was confiscated from the Russians. Relevant operational investigative actions are being carried out.
UPD: 10/04/2014 Russia went crazy: paranoid anti-Ukrainian propaganda with evoking the spirit of Sasha Bilogo and the shamans. VIDEO
The creativity of Russian journalists rolls over: REN TV correspondents went to Rovno to evoke the spirit of Sasha Bely. Colleagues summoned a shaman from Kiev to help out; they were digging the ground from Muzychko’s grave by sweat, and all in order to bring it to a Moscow psychic and find out that everything will be bad in Ukraine.
The plot of the program "Free Time" filmed amazingly. At first, the viewer observes the fluttering of wreaths on the grave and listens to the crying of grieving parents, who claim: Muzychko was killed. Further, the voice-over informs that the grave of the “hero of the revolution” has already become a place of pilgrimage for fortune-tellers and psychics, and here Aygul Bas, a specially arrived shaman from Kiev, appears on the screen. Madame shakes a tambourine, erotically sheds milk on the ground, and then the spirit of Muzychko immediately appears. The shamanka and the parents of the deceased claim that he is regularly, and every time, like the shadow of Hamlet’s father, it is said that “Julia, Turchinov and this one, who is by the police” (Arsen Avakov - Dusya) killed him. Then a handful of earth from the grave of Muzychko in a beautiful box falls into the hands of the Moscow psychic Denis Kholodnitsky, and then the spirit of Sasha Bely reports quite disappointing news: “in May the people will rise again because they will feel another deception”. The plot ends with shots from the separatist rally and shouts of "Russia!". The leader puts a fat point and reports with a contented mine that it looks like the forecast is starting to come true. A curtain.
Apparently, Russia so wants everything to be bad in Ukraine (and especially in May, when our country plans to elect a president), and this idea crammed into the brain of the audience even by the hand of fortune-tellers and shamans. Now, our psychics are simply obliged to dig up land from Putin’s dacha and give a decent answer to their Russian colleagues. And Musya, meanwhile, is waiting for new masterpieces from REN TV.
UPD: 10/04/2014 Rapid "billionaire zits" Kurchenko asks Europe to unfreeze his assets: "I am an honest Ukrainian businessman"
Alexander Yanukovich and Sergey Kurchenko are trying to unfreeze their assets in Europe. It is reported by EUobserver publication, citing sources in diplomatic circles.
The fugitives filed a protest against the sanctions applied to them by the Council of Europe. Now the case is being considered by a working group of the Council of the EU, but most likely it involves a diplomat, for the money you will have to fight in the courts of Luxembourg.
The financial assets of the former Ukrainian moneybags were blocked on March 5, two weeks after the fall of the Yanukovych regime. Sanctions for the embezzlement of state funds and human rights violations were applied to 18 people, including the former president himself and his youngest son Viktor.
What law firms will represent the interests of Kurchenko * and Yanukovich is not yet clear, but this is not “Albert & Geiger” (the company that manages the Azarov case), writes EUobserver.
The interim government of Ukraine believes that $ 70 billion was stolen from the state treasury for 4 years in power of the former regime, which led to the depletion of vital institutions, including the Ukrainian army.
With the help of investigations by EU officials and the US Federal Bureau, the Ukrainian government plans to repatriate these funds.
Sergey Kurchenko, a 28-year-old banker, a “gas baron” and a media tycoon, worked closely with the former ruling clan. On March 6, an appeal was published on the website of his company, Vetek Group, in which Sergey Kurchenko states that he is an honest person and is willing to cooperate with European investigators.
"I am an honest Ukrainian businessman ... I am ready to provide all the necessary documents and provide any assistance to the EU inspection authorities in order to prove their innocence."
On the other hand, Ukrainian prosecutors issued a warrant for his arrest on charges of stealing $ 100 million from the state gas company. They claim that Kurchenko hired “titushki” - bandits in civilian clothes who beat the protesters.
Meanwhile, journalists became aware of documents that indicate that Kurchenko is one of the organizers of criminal groups and a report on his corrupt practices. For example, Sergey Kurchenko is associated with offshore firms, including three in Cyprus, where huge sums were sent through ABLV Bank Latvia.
Alexander Yanukovich, 40 years old, is a dentist by training.
He also became one of the richest people in Ukraine after gaining control of the bank during the presidency of his father.
Where are Azarov, Alexander Kurchenko and Yanukovych - is unknown. Earlier it was reported that Mykola Azarov fled to Austria, where his family has a business and real estate. The so-called “black list” of the EU freezing assets does not prohibit the issuance of visas.
The mysterious diplomat added that according to the rules, if sanctions are imposed, EU member states may allow the release of frozen funds to pay for "reasonable" court costs.
