UKRAINE’S REALITY – Smoke and mirror

Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Report on the human rights situation in Ukraine 15 December 2014 accuses the Ukrainian government Kiev forces of torture, inhumane treatment of civilians

In case you did not notice the Ukrainian government and it’s supporters lie a lot, all the time.

.

Ukraine is a very poor and corrupt country . It has been robbed internally for decades now too and the vast corruption still is ongoing..  What is not controversial is that grand corruption flourished in Ukraine before the revolution and remains endemic now, with devastating consequences for the population’s welfare. 

.

Most economist criticizes Ukraine’s bloated public expenditures, corrupt taxation Ukraine has done nothing to tackle corruption;  A member of the House of Representatives foreign relations committee, Steve Stockman, appealed to US investigators to look into corruption in Ukraine related to hard-currency bonds, RBK-Ukrayina reports Nov. 25. The people who benefit from this corruption are top civil servants in Kiev, some of whom have yachts and private jets kept, mostly, outside the country. They will find themselves up against the “mid-level mafia” – the same raft of long-time bureaucrats skilled at making money though corrupt schemes . Many serve as deputy ministers or heads of departments, often holding more real power than their formal bosses and having their roots in the Soviet nomenclature. Without thorough administrative reform of the civil service, success in changing government will be limited. Morgan Williams, president of the US Ukraine Business Council, says “time is running out” for Ukraine’s leaders to make good on their often-repeated but never-delivered promises of reform and fighting corruption.

“The US extends grants and credits to Ukraine while accusations of corruption within the Ukrainian cabinet are surfacing, some of them against the Central bank.

Corrupt officials bought up hard-currency bonds via intermediaries in the Central bank using bank’s assets. Then they transferred to off-shore entities the right to claim interest on the bonds.

In some deals the Investment capital Ukraine, ICU, company was involved. ICU at the time was co-owned by the present Central bank governor, Valeria Hontareva.

Ukraine’s potential has been repeatedly squandered – by corruption and ill governance as much as by today’s security issues.  State coffers are at their barest in 10 years and Ukraine needs extra cash to service its debt and make gas payments at a time when the economy is contracting and the hryvnia currency hovers close to historic lows.   Disregarding the money stolen Mostly all of the newly loaned money will be going to Ukraine’s military. Weapons bought from other countries can be paid for only with any borrowed money, because the Government of Ukraine is basically broke and soaring even deeper into debt, and is sharply cutting back on pensions and other expenditures than military, which is receiving the Government’s virtually total focus. Most  loans will never be  paid back, because Ukraine cannot be able to pay back all of the existing loans.

Ukraine economically  is in no position to fight a long war with Russia.

.

International watchdog Human Rights Watch (HRW) has accused the Ukrainian army of violating “the laws of war” through the use of so-called cluster munitions in separatist-held areas of eastern Ukraine.   It could also lend credibility to Moscow’s argument that Kyiv is particularly insensitive — or even represents a threat — to the plight of ethnic Russians and other Ukrainian citizens in areas where pro-Russian separatism has maintained a foothold.

.

An Amnesty International investigation into allegations of execution-style and other deliberate killings by pro-Russian separatists and pro-Kyiv forces has found evidence of isolated incidents attributable to both sides, but is difficult to get an accurate sense of the scale of these abuses. It is likely that many have not yet been exposed and that others have been deliberately misrecorded.

The West and the new Ukraine Government had falsely Forced a Clash With Ukrainian Rebels in Donetsk

.

When the new Ukrainian President   Petro Poroshenko  took control of Ukraine in February 2014, via a coup d’etat against the past democratically elected Ukrainian President,  Viktor Yanukovych,  even by an outright invasion of Ukraine by the U.S, the new Ukrainian Government imposed in Kiev was undemocratic and very vulnerable. The new president being anti-Russian had to get rid of those southeastern voters (exterminated &/or expelled from Ukraine) in order to make the new, pro-U.S. Ukrainian regime (which was supported only by the voters in Ukraine’s northeast), stick,

.

“In Ukraine, the EU was complicit in the coup against the democratically elected Viktor Yanukovych and has failed to voice any concern at the treatment of the opposition parties in the country,”.    Crimea had immediately broke away from that new Government, Russian troops came into Crimea to protect them against military action that was planned by the U.S. to stop that breakaway,and Crimeans then immediately held a plebiscite in March which overwhelmingly supported reuniting Crimea with Russia — Crimea had never voluntarily left Russia: the USSR’s leader Khrushchev had donated Russia’s Crimean region to Ukraine in 1954, and most Crimeans were always overwhelmingly opposed to that change.Then, elsewhere in Ukraine’s southeast, locals took over government buildings and refused to accept the new coup-imposed, anti-Russian Ukrainian Government. The newly appointed leaders of Ukraine didn’t like that, and were determined to stop the rebellion. They commenced an ethnic-cleansing campaign to eliminate the voters in the southeast In fact, the man whom the Obama-team chose to design the ethnic-cleansing program next had announced in June that there were going to be concentration-camps for everyone in the southeast who supported the breakaway-movement.

Ukraine is still  gripped by anarchy, while the opposition parties are being suppressed on daily basis, where All major parties favoring close political and economic relations with Russia were subjected to persecution in Ukraine.  “The Party of Regions, which also favors close political and economic relations with Russia, has been bullied into submission at the Rada. Its politicians have been physically assaulted in the parliament and have been portrayed on state-run television as ‘traitors’ and ‘servants to Moscow’,” Under  the government of Petro Poroshenko “Ukraine has rapidly become an intolerant and xenophobic country run by fascists and bigots who seek to eradicate any political party which has pro-Russian views. This country is now awash with neo-Nazi groups who patrol major Ukrainian cities – from Lvov to Kiev to Odessa. Ukraine has turned into “an official repository for racism, “The United States and the EU work with any group which will oppose Russia in everything.

It is the Ukrainian Government which was is itself bombing those ‘separatists’ villages , that’s doing the war “escalation,” in the Ukrainian civil war that the U.S. and NATO had falsely started, and was funding thee Ukrainian Nazi regime there to perpetrate extermination of those rebel Ukrainian villagers. They had got to clear the land in Ukraine’s southeast, so as to enable their oil companies to frack Ukraine’s gas. The gas fields in Ukraine’s southeast were seen as assets that can be sold off (“privatized”) to Western oil companies dirt-cheap by the same Ukrainian Government desperate to repay the nearly $30 billion that the U.S., EU, and IMF lent to that Government to finance their ethnic-cleansing program…  However, the Ukrainian Government ultimately did fail to get rid of rebel Ukrainians.  Alll which means that U.S., Obama has, in effect, lost this Ukrainian war, and that the West’s taxpayers and recipients of government services will be forced to reimburse the IMF for losses on the more-than-$30-billion loans to Ukraine. The reason Obama had also lost is that the Russian Orthodox rebel residents in Ukraine’s southeast would rather fight to the death than yield to the also Catholic Nazis. So Obama and Obama’s Ukrainian war installed Nazis lost and were not able to exterminate enough of the rebel ‘enemy’. The Local regional dominance of the U.S., EU, and Japan, and their war appetite is ending, their anti Russian sanctions had failed . The Western Pro Russian Alliance was defeated, is breaking up. Even Poland no longer opposes Russia.

.

The European Union’s outgoing High Commissioner for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Catherine Ashton, said on Friday shelling of residential areas in eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk is inadmissible. Eastern Ukraine’s Donetsk has been under heavy shelling for several days.  On October 1 at least nine people were killed and another 30 were wounded when residential areas of Donetsk were shelled by the Ukrainian government forces.

.

The Western and  European countries had chosen “tactics of destruction for Ukraine” from the very beginning of the conflict. Even the  Kiev authorities make it clear that certain recent agreements, including the peace plan reached in Minsk on September 5, “are non-essential and can be easily disrupted.”  The wicked cannot rest with peace..

.

A total of 50% of infrastructure has been destroyed as a result of hostilities in Donbass (Donetsk and Luhansk regions in eastern Ukraine seeking independence from Kiev). “Forty-two percent of the industrial potential, half of infrastructure have been lost in the region, mines have been flooded, blast furnaces and coke-chemical batteries have been stopped,” Poroshenko, on a working visit to the western Ukrainian city of Lvov, said.

.

Next the “Ukraine’s economy is likely to suffer more than previously predicted because of the conflict in the east of the country, the World Bank has said.

It now says that GDP is likely to contract by 8% this year, compared with its previous prediction of 5%.

It also now expects a 1% contraction in 2015, instead of 2.5% growth.

The prediction comes as pro-Russian separatists and government forces vie for control of the airport in the eastern city of Donetsk.

The rebels say they occupy nearly all the airport, but the government disputes this.

The World Bank said the conflict had caused disruption in economic activity in the eastern Donetsk and Luhansk regions, leading to a sharper decline in GDP.

The bank’s chief representative in Ukraine, Qimiao Fan, said the two regions accounted for about one-sixth of the country’s GDP, including a quarter of industrial output. ”

.

” The bloody conflict in Ukraine’s east is severing the arteries that connect the nation’s economy.

The effects are being felt hundreds of miles from the unrest in industries as different as electricity and food processing. Power plants at the other end of the country are being starved of coal because of disruptions to mining, while in Kiev, one of Ukraine’s biggest poultry producers is looking abroad for incubatory eggs after output was halted at its facility near the war-ravaged city of Donetsk.

Months of fighting have left pro-Russian rebels in control of a swathe of Ukraine’s easternmost regions, which generated almost a quarter of industrial output at the start of the year. The knock-on effects of idle factories are seeping through an economy at risk of a 10 percent contraction in 2014, according to Ukraine’s central bank. The International Monetary Fundsays $17 billion may not be enough to avert a default.

“Everything is interlinked and companies in the rest of Ukraine will suffer,” Liza Ermolenko, an analyst at London-based Capital Economics Ltd., said by e-mail. “That’s on top of the indirect channels through which the conflict in the east affects the rest of the economy — the currency, banks, inflation and confidence channels.”  http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-10-01/war-severs-ukraine-s-industrial-arteries-as-economy-sinks.html

.

What goes around comes around.. Ukraine has no money to pay anything they are over 35 billion in debt and Poroshenko has pledged an extra 3 billion to his armed forces this year first the country will need to confront an old, internal enemy: corruption.  Transparency International ranks Ukraine 144 out of 177 countries on its corruption-perception index.

.

Even with Yanukovych gone, corruption is a problem that still plagues the country. But the country’s problem is much bigger than any single politician or administration. It is potentially significant, for instance, that the new parliament in Ukraine remains a club of millionaires in a country where the per-capita GDP is less than $4,000.

.

What the Ukraine  falsely still  think Russia and others  should be piping free gas into Ukraine while they try to sell it to others.. “And there is ample anecdotal evidence that the Ukrainian public service is pervasively corrupt, as many people who have tried to secure a business license, or even been pulled over for speeding, could attest.”

.

The IMF gave Ukraine money specifically to pay the old Russian gas bill, but the money was embezzled. Russia’s Gazprom simply wants paying for supplied goods. Is this evil?  “Ukraine’s gas supply issues worsened on Thursday after Hungary’s gas pipeline network operator FGSZ said it was indefinitely suspending gas supplies to the country for technical reasons, a move branded “unexpected and unexplained” by Ukraine state-owned gas firm Naftogaz”  Technical? Or have they just not paid the bill to Hungary either? Yes  Technically, Hungary, Slovakia, Poland are now not selling Russian gas to the Ukraine too. Pay your gas bills you bunch of thieving Ukrainian  shysters….

.

Who is the West supporting. Not the Ukrainian economy which can never recover now.  The West are supporting those who are busily looting the country. How much of the IMF money actually gets to benefit Ukraine? These are the people who killed hundreds of Europeans for a PR stunt.  The West are supporting the racists  neo-Nazis who want to remove all those of Russian descent from the country, by ANY means.  The West support their shelling of men, women and children in Eastern cities. The EU, and the West  have falsely actively backed and supported violent Ukrainian Neo-Nazis to riot, overthrow the democratically elected government of Ukraine and then push into East Ukraine and force the ethnic Russians to either flee or face genocide. Poverty,    the racist  ultra-nationalists in Ukraine got  everything they deserve  even for the shelling of innocent civilians in E Ukraine. and have found out the hard way no bad deed goes unpunished.. The nazis in Kiev made their bed…. now they lie in it.

.

And Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper do note-  Yes, Ukraine is BANKRUPT. BROKE. PENNILESS.  Ukraine is broke – and winter is coming… How broke is Ukraine? On a scale of one to 10, it is  10 and a half.  They all there  now have to stay in Ukraine and live there and try to make ends meet in their own  war torn and   bankrupt country.  Yes Ukraine is still bankrupt: morally, ethically, politically and financially even by the past actions of it’s own citizens.  Ukraine was already treading deep water before the  pro Russian war fiasco, a Ukrainian  war of  false  distraction, so still it  is facing a recession now really deep, and  all helped by the past and present internal Ukrainian corruption that ranges from the small scale to the incredibly immense..  thefts included. Russia had once offered  Ukraine 45 billion aid  and reduced energy costs and the, Kiev, neo- Nazi thugs ran into the warm arms of, Rasmussen, Kerry, McCain, Hague and Ashton and and its been here too   down hill ever since.  How much aid did you  offer to the mostly still crooked Ukraine? Since the present defeat of the Ukrainian troops and the neo-SS batallions fighting for Kiev it has been very quiet on the Ukraine Western Front except for the Ukrainian thugs..  Ukraine’s  present waging of a civil war is expensive, very costly and big payment is needed as the chickens are now roosting. Those false political, war advisers from abroad, NATO  to Ukraine haven’t really  talked about is how  totally  dependent Kiev’s economy is on Russia. In 2013, more than 60 percent of their exports went to post-Soviet countries. Meanwhile, Ukraine’s export levels have, officially, fallen by a gigantic 19 percent already this year too.  Industrial production has fallen off a cliff in Ukraine, down over 20 percent already this year and retail sales as well.   Also, what little high-end manufacturing Ukraine had was almost entirely beholden to the Russian military too. Ukraine imports 80 percent of its natural gas – and most of that comes from Russia. Kiev currently owes Gazprom, Russia’s state gas giant, $4.5 billion. In fact, Ukraine’s single most profitable export service (worth $3 billion annually) is transit fees for Gazprom’s access to other European markets. The  so called “friends” from the West, western media and Nato all won’t be around there for the drudgery of the real recession. IMF loans   are not p“aid” – and they must be repaid. As usual, the outside rich do very well and everyone else in Ukraine has to tough it. More false anti Russian  hate speech  mostly from the false western supporters of Ukraine helps no one..

PS:

Also the full story of its racial, genocidal Ukrainian  assault on eastern Ukraine has yet to come out. Estimates of the death toll exceed 10,000 and even Poroshenko has admitted that the Ukrainian army has lost 65% of its military hardware. And now mass graves are starting to turn up,in Eastern Ukraine,  where victims, including women, have been found with their hands tied behind their backs.

.

Anyone examining the MH17 wreckage comes to the same conclusion – it is riddled with bullet holes, specifically from a 30mm cannon mounted on an SU25 Ukrainian fighter. This no doubt also explains why the UK never released the contents of the black box flight recorders. No wreckage from a BUK missile was ever found at the scene.

.

Yulie Tymoshenko of the Fatherland Part became a billionaire while in office. Yatsenyuk was a salaried employee who became ‘filthy’ rich like the others in the political cabal of thieves and oligarchs of the Ukrainian ruling elite. Ukraine has 9 billionaires with most of their money  obtained by theft, fraud. Ukraine – it’s hard to believe anything that country propagates- a country that does just about everything to not pay its liability, a country with neither strength nor loyalty or responsibility, mostly practices  just more false diversions and lies.. and why does the West support them? Cause they lie a lot too.. this is what happens when you put Psychopaths in Government…  the Kiev government has overplayed its victim hood card and gilded the lily so many times that liars would blush at their effrontery.

.

Shale gas is extremely cheap to produce. It is so abundant under our very feet that to all intents and purpose it is unlimited. The only thing standing in our way of cheap, energy independence is the US financed, supported loony green enviro- traitors groups who spout their ‘religion’ of climate change and ‘pollution’ (there is absolutely no evidence of either) in order to let US sell more Gas. Some estimates conservatively say that the US has enough shale gas to provide all the country’s energy needs for over 5,000 years. The US is now completely energy independent and is actually exporting again. The US is building more LNG ports to ship more gas from US and so is Canada. The real reason they both do  want Russia out of Europe and Ukraine.so they can sell more gas to them

.

Canada the US puppet follows the US lead.

Unbeliveable, disgusting, what a claim

Liberal_

He claims he can be a competent premier but he is raising the taxes. cutting back on services as Quebec is broke, busted…

quebec-broke

 ‘
Bad Dr Porter’s relationship with Dr. P. Couillard, who was Quebec’s health minister  and now the Premier of Quebec too, at the time, appears to be far more extensive than previously thought.  Couillard, claims he did not know that his long time business partner was a crook must have really really bad jugdement  or is lying.  Not only did Couillard and Porter go on fishing trips when Porter served as chief executive officer of the MUHC, he says, but Porter claims that Couillard phoned him every day for political advice.  http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Arthur+Porter+dishes+dirt+Harper+Couillard/10188705/story.html

but the same person Couillard could not spot a crook even as he worked with him for years..  but I can work with a person one day and likely tell you if he is a crook, immoral or not..  and that is why I tend to spell Liberals as Lieberals..

.

The really bad  Liberals  including DR Philippe Couillard  who had  allowed this province to go down in a mess, corruptions THEY STILL REALLY do not deserve to be a governing party ever. I am not a politician, but as an ordinary Citizen I knew that Dr Porter was likely clearly corrupt, the MUHC corrupted, and the city of Montreal as well and I had objected to it. And if Pauline Marois and her separatist  party fail to address the corruptions now properly, instead of sweeping it under the table as has been done wrongfully  for decades, they too  do not deserve to be a governing party ever Both the Liberals and the PQ parties had failed to properly deal with English language laws already too..

.

In 2006, Couillard, then health minister in the Liberal government, agreed to bring Quebec doctors’ salaries in line with those of their colleagues in the rest of Canada. As president of the FMSQ from 2010 to 2014, Barrette had defended the agreement before changing his tone when he became minister of health.

Now he is calling for a delay of the pay raise as part of the Couillard government’s promise to plug the provincial deficit by 2016. The value of the pay hike has been estimated to be anywhere between $900 million and $1.2 billion. Doctors’ salaries account for 62 per cent of the Régie assurance maladie du Québec’s yearly budget, amounting to $6.5 billion.

Instead of clawing back doctors’ salaries, the government should deal with the “daily waste related to the mismanagement of hospitals,” Francoeur wrote in a fiery editorial in Le Specialiste, the FMSQ’s monthly magazine.  http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Medical+specialists+accuse+Quebec+health+minister+negotiating+faith/10211519/story.html

Wife pleads guilty to laundering money for former spy watchdog Arthur Porter

The wife of Arthur Porter, the accused fraudster and former head of the federal spy watchdog, has admitted to laundering millions of dollars stolen from the public purse. Yet Dr.  Arthur Porter, and Dr. P. Couillard,  still insist the whole event is a lie, perverse fabrication, they are  not guilty of any wrong doing..

Robbed by Banks and credit card companies

 

Merchants have already  sued Credit card networks for alleged conspiring with banks to fix high swipe fees,  fees which are charged to businesses when consumers pay with credit or debit cards  which the Canadian government,  Finance Minister Joe Oliver , Joe.Oliver@parl.gc.ca,  claims are among the highest in the world. Credit card networks  and Banks  also are allegedly conspiring to fix  borrowing fees, which leads to the high consumer  borrowing costs! Canadian, Consumers do need real  protection now, ASAP

end fees for getting monthly bills on paper

Federal legislation will end fees for getting monthly bills on paper:

The federal government will introduce legislation to end what is called pay-to-pay, that is charging people for a monthly bill on paper. The met under the auspices of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunication Commission on Thursday and agreed to exempt some people, including seniors, the disabled, military vets and people without Internet access. The CRTC said it wasn’t enough. The minister says Canadians expect lower prices and better service from the telecoms. The Public Interest Advocacy Centre has estimated consumers pay $734 million every year in fees to get bills on paper.“We do not believe that Canadians should pay more to receive a paper copy of their telephone or wireless bill,” Moore said. Porking the barrel with extra costs is an. They have a bad motivation for  to keep the extra fees in place for as long as possible. The cost of invoicing a client is a normal business cost.

The managers should be made to pay for their mismanagement and not the employees

1- quebec-flag

 

Now when it comes to the province of Quebec and the pensions of its municipal employees the most reasonable, practical solution to pay of the heavy debt in Quebec is for all the politicians and manager’s salary to be cut by 50 percent as well as their related pensions after all it was under their leaderships  that the debts have arisen… and not the employees, Notice that the Municipal managers are still giving themselves big raises ..  Top managers at the Montreal Transit Corporation, (MTC), or STM in French, are getting big raises for the 3rd straight year.  The average increase for this year was nearly four per cent and the average salary for the top dozen or so bosses is pegged at more than 200-thousand dollars while salaries have increased, but not the quality of service. The MTC’s own yearly report says metro service interruptions due to mechanical reasons soared more than 20 per cent last year over the year before.

.

The Workers are  not to blame for the Quebec pension problem:

.

Stealing from the employees pension fund to pay off the debts is immoral.

.

Municipal workers rightfully do stage rallies against Bill 3 as hearings on the immoral  legislation get underway.

.

Quebec, and  Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard,  is falsely trying to snatch back promised pension money by fiat through its proposed Bill 3 pension reform legislation, without the  legal process of bankruptcy. The bill would override existing contracts, and force a restructuring of some 216 different defined benefit pension plans in 1,100 municipalities across Quebec. The bill would give municipalities the power to suspend indexation of any workers retired as of Jan. 1, 2014.

.

FTQ’s secretary general Serge Cadieux said  “The government is focusing all its attention to the demands made by certain mayors without considering any other suggestions made by the unions representing salaried municipal workers,”

.

The Montreal Police Brotherhood said that police officers will have to double their pension contributions.  “There will be no police officer who will want to come to work in Montreal,” said the brotherhood’s president Yves Francoeur.
