24 March 2017. As Seen by Vitaly Podvitsky… I Only Wanted You to Simulate Sabotage!

____________________________________

Near Kharkov, the largest Ukrainian military warehouse complex burned to the ground; 138,000 tonnes of ammunition exploded. No one saw who did it… no one knows how much is left. However, Kiev already announced that the warehouse catastrophe occurred due to sabotage.

Zakharchenko Announced the Beginning of a Multi-Level Integration with Russia

______________________________

DNR Head of State A V Zakharchenko said on a live broadcast beamed to the people of the Kiev-occupied part of the DNR on the national TV and internet services:

The Committee established in the Crimea is a public initiative. Our social movement “Donetsk Republic” did this in the Crimea so that we as a whole could exist within Russia. Integration is multi-levelled, not only economic. It takes into account all aspects of our lives.

On 17 March 2017, the Russia-Donbass Integration Committee began work in the Crimea. As noted at the opening meeting by RF Gosduma Deputy Andrei Kozenko:

Russia gave substantial support to the DNR and LNR; therefore, there we needed social coordination. To do this, we created a permanent Integration Committee.

Both DNR Head of State Zakharchenko and LNR Head of State I V Plotnitsky took part in the initial Committee meeting.

Rolling Blackouts Announced in Seven Ukrainian Oblasts

____________________________________

On 22 March 2017, Ukrenergo announced rolling electrical blackouts in seven Ukrainian oblasts. If alternative supplies of coal don’t materialise soon, the Ukraine will begin earlier-announced major electrical blackouts. Today, Ukrenergo Acting Director Vsevolod Kovalchuk told journalists in Kiev:

If new coal supplies aren’t forthcoming, we may have to implement the plan we spoke of in February [serious limitation of energy consumption: Aleksei Zhuravko]. At present, the power stations are working normally, based on coal reserved stockpiled prior to the blockade. We can manage until the early spring due to conservation measures at coal-powered power stations [that is, power blackouts and brownouts: editor].

Previously, media reports stated that power blackouts in case of a negative scenario would occur in seven oblasts… Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk, Kiev, Chernigov, Zaporozhye, Sumy, and Cherkassy. Governmental authorities in these areas are responsible for organising ad hoc departments to deal with this emergency in the power sector. Yesterday, Ukrainian Prime Minister Groysman stated that the Ukraine is exploring the possibility of buying coal in the USA, Australia, and South Africa. Because of the trade embargo with the LNR and DNR, coal reserves at Ukrainian power stations are close to zero. Previously, Groysman stated that the Donbass blockade would cause the loss to the Ukrainian state budget of 3.5 billion USD (201.43 billion Roubles. 24.11 billion Renminbi. 229.2 billion INR. 4.67 billion CAD. 4.6 billion AUD. 3.25 billion Euros. 2.8 billion UK Pounds) and idle 75,000 workers. The State National Commission for Energy and Utility Regulation will increase the wholesale market price for electricity by 1 percent, instead of the previously-announced decline of 5.8 percent, due to cost increases mandated by the purchase of imported coal.

22 March 2017. The Old Master on American Fecklessness

______________________________________

Unlike Trump’s phoney mouthpiece Rex Tillotson and Obama’s clueless hacks Clinton and Kerry, Sergei Viktorovich is a real diplomat, with many years of experience. He sees the Americans as reckless and feckless brats… God help us, for that’s what the American Establishment is, and they’ll continue being such until they’re stopped. Can the Old Master keep the peace? God willing… for there’s no sane voice here, sadly enough.
