We completed our move to our new apartment. I haven’t put up a new “daily roundup” of war news yet. There’s a reason… often, such a compendium takes several hours to complete, it’s not a cut n’ paste. Firstly, one reads the relevant press articles… I’ve chosen the VOR posts as the basis of the public post because they’re the briefest. You see, I read several sources, so, if there’s any mistakes in the VOR submissions, I correct them. Secondly, I lay out the post, correct all grammatical errors and correct any detail I find not agreeing with my other sources. In short, it’s a production, it isn’t a lazy thing, and I haven’t had the energy to do so this week. I’ve been knackered and fagged out. I’m feeling better, so, the next roundup goes up on Monday. The junta continues to lie and the Western media laps it up.

It ain’t easy being green… let me tell you, my knees are still talking to me…

Many Western media outlets trumpeted the idiosyncratic vapourings of an Orthodox priest against football. Wanna know what the REAL Church thinks? Well, look at the above images and read the article below. Look at the good trees… look at the bad trees… ain’t nothing in common between the two, is there?  Realise that you can take ANYTHING too far… including religion!  Think on that one…

By the way… V A Chaplin is a big-time footy fan… I thought that you’d like to know that (no, I don’t know which side he backs… as for me, like all decent human beings, I back FK Lokomotiv Moskva, the mighty red n’ green Parovozy).

There was a youth football tournament between teams from rural parishes in Bar Raion. The Youth Department of the Bar Deanery organised the event. Fr Vladimir Katerinchak, the head of the Raion Department, noted that the purpose of the competition was to promote healthy physical and spiritual habits amongst young people. On 3 July, the first match pitted teams from Karyshkov and Garmaki. Before the game, the participants took part in prayers at St John the Theologian church in Garmaki. Archpriest Oleg Lavrentyuk, director of catechesis and religious education, served a molieben, after which he spoke about the role of God and the Church in the modern world, especially, as it applied to the lives of young people. The youth team from Garmaki won the first match, which was at the local pitch. The senior team match ended with in a draw. Everyone played well, including the local priests. Similar games will occur between youth teams from Bar deanery parishes throughout the summer holidays. The final match will be at the Bar Raion Stadium.

P A Poroshenko’s proposal to increase funding for arms procurement is unlikely to significantly help his army… Ukrainian science expenditures accounted for only 0.27 percent of GDP whilst the military already consumes 1.25 percent of GDP.

The blocking by Euromaidan activists of administrative buildings and roads in the centre of Kiev is beginning to worry the authorities. However, they’re hesitant to disperse the Euromaidantsy, as they fear that the squatters wouldn’t respond… they’re addicted to confrontation.

The Euromaidantsy terrorists put the junta in power… but now they’re inconvenient. Shall the junta smash the plug-uglies? After all, they’re one of its only props of support. The junta is in a bind. In the end, I believe that the junta will unleash unbridled violence on the Maidan (the USA will slobber its approval and Potapov and Paffso will cheer them on). It’s a crank world, ain’t it? Pass the jug… we all need a drink…
