Ukraine | Ukrainian men don’t want to fight against Donbas

About 10 thousand facts of desertion in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were recorded during the war in the Donbas. According to “Radio Liberty” it was reported by the head of the Military Service Law Enforcement Alexander Dublian.
In the same time the action group brought to the Donbas is numbered 60 thousand people.
Five mobilizations had been held for the Ukrainian army since the beginning of the war, and sixth campaign for conscription has been started recently. All five previous campaigns ended with underfullfiled plans to mobilize in the army. For example, in Bolgard district of Odessa region in the framework of the fourth wave only 3 people were mobilized instead of 70 according to plan.
The mobilization plan for the first phase of the 4th wave of mobilization in the Transcarpathian region was not fulfilled 26% for sergeants and 15% – for officers
Fifth mobilization plan was fullfiled only by 45%
Ukrainian reporters made a video how men evade mobilization

Greece | The battle for the Referendum in Greece

Monday, June 29, 2015

More than 200 thousand people assembled in Syntagma Square, in front of the Greek Parliament in a tremendous mass rally supporting “NO”, in the coming Referendum on July 5 for the ultimatum posed by the EU, the ECB, and the IMF to Greece to accept a new round of measures of social cannibalism or to be evicted from the Euro-zone( the infamous “Grexit) and then from the EU. The days of the historic popular mobilizations in the years 2010-12 , when first the troika of EU/ECB/IMF with the willingly servile Greek bourgeois governments imposed the infamous “bail out” programs tied with “Memorandum” of draconian measures of “austerity” to save their banks by starving the people of a bankrupt Greece.

OK, this is real: Greek banks closed, capital controls imposed. Grexit isn’t a hard stretch from here — the much feared mother of all bank runs has already happened, which means that the cost-benefit analysis starting from here is much more favorable to euro exit than it ever was before.

Malaysia | Malaysian Pressure Forces MH17 Investigation to UN

Malaysia, frustrated by the refusal of the official international investigation-team to produce any clear evidence yet of whom to blame for the downing of the MH17 Malaysian airliner over the Ukrainian civil-war zone on 17 July 2014, has finally forced the team to request the UN to investigate. They’ve forced the original four nations on the team to accept UN adjudication of any final report. This will enable a court-proceeding to make the ultimate determination of guilt (upon which judgment penalties and compensation will be assessed), and this court-determination would inevitably allow whatever party is being blamed by the five-member official investigating team, to present its own evidence in the case, so that the court will make the ultimate determination ? the official investigating team will not be performing that crucial judgmental function.
