UPD: 10/04/2014 #IsotriyaKryma


My house is twenty minutes from the sea, and I go to the beach to walk with a dog. Between the beach and the village where I live, passes the Kerch-Feodosiya highway. Today, when the dog and I approached the road, a military petrol tanker 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 flying over the village. Well flew and flew. Every day they fly.

Then I went on business to the city. The city is visited by people in a new for my eyes dark green in speckled form. They just walk around, talk among themselves, buy ice cream and sweet water ... Well, they go and walk.

You are gradually getting used to military equipment and green men on the streets. Probably, this is a protective reaction of the body. Because if you do not get used to it, you can go crazy.

Many of my friends complain that they are being called by relatives / friends / acquaintances and in horror asks: "How do you live there? !! It's the same nightmare that you have there! "And my friends are already tired of convincing everyone that everything is quiet and nothing has changed at all.

Yes, of course, certainly. 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, bursts at the seams and begins to pour.

The first three weeks I lived with the constant feeling that in my inner world all the walls are falling apart

I'm a freelancer. This is not only the embodiment of the dream of office plankton about the lack of superiors and their own work schedule. It's also customers at the far end of the earth, Internet accounts, bank transfers, purchases in online stores and courier services. The collapse of the banking system was a deafening blow for me.

First there was a blocking of the Privatbank card, and I lost the possibility of non-cash settlements. Terminals do not work, the only loophole was Web-money with a nightmare rate of 120 rubles = 50 hryvnia. Asking to replenish webmoney comes from relatives in Kiev, because I myself can not. Began the delights of life in debt.

Then there was a mess with remittances. My client for a week rushed around Moscow, trying to transfer money to me. By some miracle she succeeded. Now the next payment is next, and I'm already inventing clever schemes for transferring money through another city, to the address of the person from whom I buy the materials, because you can forget about normal calculations with online stores. While pulling on old stocks. What I will do later, I do not know.

My friends have agreed with the online store, their supplier, that they send a parcel with some garbage, which is hidden envelope. It is clear that according to the rules of the New Mail, this can not be done. Are there any options?

It's surprising in general that New Mail works, although it should not. Ukrposhta announced the termination of the acceptance of parcels. And I have two orders at work - one to Moscow, the other to Belgorod. It remains only to hope that everything will settle down while I finish them. Otherwise - at least personally carry. By the way, the customs at Perekop have already been delivered.

With this bank postal hanging on the neck, you only do what you invent ways of turning out of the nodes.

I drive to the city center for shopping past the passport office. Near the doors - a constant crowd. People are crowded, heads are all turned in one direction. They remind me of flocks of sheep on the mountain slopes of Georgia. The sheep are also like that - a dense heap and all go in one direction. I pass by the passport desk and reflect on the fact that most people are about the essence, the same flock of sheep, which really does not care who their shepherd is. If only grass on the pasture was more congenial and koshara in case of rain. They say, "We want stability," "If only it was quiet," and a dense group 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 the roof in the koshar is leaking. When they understand, they will start indignantly to sweep. Only who will listen to them. All that the shepherd needs, they have already made a remark.

And now they are happy. The good shepherds built a paddock for them, protected them from the terrible Bender wolves, who almost came to shoot everyone. And they are waiting for their fence, when the promised freebie will be sprinkled on them in the form of an increase in pensions fourfold.

They are in the enclosure. And I'm in a cage.

The new minister of resorts and tourism of Crimea said recently that "the introduction of any restrictions on the issuance of visas to the EU countries to the inhabitants of the Crimea will not affect their rest." In the event of such restrictions, Crimeans can rest at home. " And we so dreamed of going to Spain. Now we have a great alternative: on shish kebabs in the next forest plantation. 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 Internet window.

On the Internet, an endless stream of information, how life in the Crimea is deteriorating, how the upcoming season is falling, how our new bandit leaders give out pearls of marasmus. And under these posts - gloating comments, they say, you, the Crimeans, have chosen, here and shovel now. The trouble is that those who poured the crowd into the referendum, these comments will not be read. They will be read by people like me, who did not choose this. We just put before the fact. We did not have freedom of choice.

First I was delayed by a financial hammer. Then they took away the dream. But most importantly, my freedom was taken away. Freedom to choose to live as I want. To be where I want to be. Think what I want. It's more than just working without a boss and on your own schedule.

Yes, only freedom - a little thing in demand. Free mustangs are always much smaller than stupid sheep.

UPD: 10/04/2014 In Ukraine, the Russian "tourist" was traveling with radio callsign tables, mobile phones and rocket launchers

В Украине российский «турист» ехал с таблицами радиопозывные, мобильными телефонами и ракетницами

This morning at the railway checkpoint "Horobichi" the border guards of the Chernigov detachment together with the customs officers found a difficult Russian "tourist".

A Russian citizen was on his way to Ukraine by the Polotsk-Simferopol train. During the audit, he found an unusual set of things. A resident of the Bryansk region carried 2 military tickets of the USSR, 3 rockets and 17 rounds to them, 5 mobile phones in disassembled form, 3 gas cartridges, 35 Russian rubles of the Russian Federation. The most interesting finding of the workers at the checkpoint was the radio call sign table, which was also found in the man.

The Russian was invited to the border guard unit for a conversation. It is found out where and for what purpose the person was heading. The competent law enforcement agencies have been informed of it.

UPD: 04/10/2014 SBU detains 22-year-old Russian spy with firearms

СБУ задержала 22-летнюю русскую шпионку с огнестрельным оружием

The SBU detained a 22-year-old Russian citizen who was carrying out the task of the special services to destabilize the situation in the southern regions of Ukraine. This is stated in the press release of the SBU.

According to the agency, 22-year-old Maria Koleda arrived in Kherson on April 4. According to her, this is her ninth trip to Ukraine. On April 5-6, the foreigner held a number of meetings with leaders and activists of pro-Russian movements in Kherson, and also visited certain regional centers of the region to monitor the situation on the ground.

And already on April 7, Koleda took a direct part in the clashes near the Nikolayevskaya State Military District, during which she used firearms. According to her, at the same time she wounded three people. After these events, the spy, hiding, returned to the Kherson region.

"The operatives found that on 8 April Kolda reported to her curator in the Russian Federation about the presence of improvised explosive devices in" unlimited numbers "and the agreement reached on the receipt of small arms by them, and she also reported on the preparation of two subversive groups (7 people from the city Kherson and 6 people from the city of Novaya Kakhovka) to go to Donetsk to participate in the riots, "the press service said.

Also in the Security Service of Ukraine, they said that Koleda was instructed to find out the status of the arms of the SFS officers on the Crimean border with the mainland of Ukraine and the possibility of getting from the ARC, legally or bypassing the established checkpoints, persons who were forbidden entry to Ukraine by the SBU.

During the detention, a traumatic pistol, re-equipped for shooting live ammunition and methodological recommendations for the preparation of sabotage groups, was confiscated from the Russians. Now the relevant operational and investigative actions are being carried out.

UPD: 10/04/2014 Russia has gone mad: a paranoid anti-Ukrainian propaganda with the evocation of the spirit of Sashka Bilogo and shamans. VIDEO

Creativity of Russian journalists is off scale: correspondents of REN TV have gone to Rivne to evoke the spirit of Sasha Bely. Colleagues called for help shaman from Kiev, sweating in the sweat of the earth from the grave of Muzychko - and all in order to bring her to the Moscow psychic and find out that everything will be bad in Ukraine.

The plot from the program "Free time" is shot amazing. At first the spectator observes the fluttering of wreaths on the grave and listens to the weeping of the grief-stricken parents who claim: The music was still killed. Further, voice-over informs that the grave of the "hero of the revolution" has already become a place of pilgrimage of fortunetellers and psychics, and here a special shaman Aigul Bass arrives from Kiev on purpose. Madam shakes the tambourine, erotically sheds milk on the ground, and then the Muzychko spirit immediately appears. Shamanka and the parents of the deceased claim that he is regularly, and every time, like the shadow of Hamlet's father, he reports that he was murdered by "Yulka, Turchinov and this one who is by the police" (Arsen Avakov-Dusya). Further, a handful of earth from the grave of Muzychko in a beautiful box falls into the hands of the Moscow psychic Denis Kholodnitsky, and here the spirit of Sasha Belyi tells the very very disappointing news: "in May, the people will rise again because they will feel the next deception." The story ends with shots from the separatist rally and the screams "Russia!". Fat point puts the leader and with a contented report says that, it seems, the forecast begins to come true. A curtain.

Apparently, Russia wants so badly that everything was bad in Ukraine (and especially in May, when our country plans to elect a president) that this idea is pushed into the viewer's brain, even with fortune-tellers and shamans. Now our psychics are simply obliged to dig up the earth from Putin's dacha and give a decent response to Russian colleagues. And Moussa, meanwhile, is waiting for new masterpieces from REN TV.

UPD: 10/04/2014 Running "zits billionaire" Kurchenko asks Europe to unfreeze its assets: "I'm an honest Ukrainian businessman"

Беглый зиц-миллиардер Курченко просит Европу разморозить его активы: Я честный украинский бизнесмен

Alexander Yanukovich and Sergei Kurchenko are trying to unfreeze their assets in Europe. This is reported by the publication EUobserver referring to sources in diplomatic circles.

The fugitives filed a protest against the sanctions applied to them by the Council of Europe. Now the matter is being considered by the working group of the Council of the EU, but most likely, the diplomat assumes, for money will have to compete in the courts of Luxembourg.

The financial assets of the former Ukrainian money-bags were blocked on March 5, two weeks after the fall of the Yanukovych regime. Sanctions for the theft of public funds and violations of human rights applied to 18 people, including the most former president and his youngest son Victor.

Which law firms will represent the interests of Kurchenko * and Yanukovych - is not yet clear, however it is not "Albert & Geiger" (the company that conducts the Azarov case), EUobserver writes.

The Provisional Government of Ukraine believes that $ 70 billion was stolen from the state treasury for 4 years in the former regime's 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.

Sergei Kurchenko, a 28-year-old banker, a gas baron and media tycoon, worked closely with the former ruling clan. On March 6, on the website of his company Vetek Group, an appeal was published in which Sergey Kurchenko states that he is an honest man and is ready to cooperate with European investigators.

"I am an honest Ukrainian businessman ... I am ready to provide all the necessary documents and to render any assistance to the inspection bodies of the EU in order to prove my innocence."

But, Ukrainian prosecutors issued a warrant for his arrest on charges of stealing $ 100 million from the state gas company. They claim that Kurchenko hired "titles" - plain-clothes bandits who beat up protesters.

Meanwhile, journalists have become aware of documents that show that Kurchenko is one of the organizers of criminal groups and an account of his corrupt activities. For example, offshore firms, including three in Cyprus, are connected with Sergey Kurchenko, where huge amounts of money were sent through the ABLV Bank of Latvia.

Alexander Yanukovich, 40, a dentist by education.

He also became one of the richest people in Ukraine after gaining control over the bank during his father's presidency.

Where are now Azarov, Alexander Kurchenko and Yanukovych - is unknown. Earlier it was reported that Mykola Azarov fled to Austria, where his family has 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 were imposed, EU member states could allow the release of frozen money to pay for "reasonable" legal expenses.
