Ukraine | Unidentified cat spy or farce style criminal persecution

Ukrainian media reported that in the criminal case of opposition journalist Vasily Muravitsky, who was arrested on charges of high treason, scandalous details were revealed. Andrei Gozhyy, Muravitsky’s lawyer, said that the special services accuse him of contacting a secret Russian agent called Pampukh. But in fact, Pampukh is not a man, but a cat that lives with his relatives.
Julia Maltseva, the owner of the cat, confirmed the statement and placed a Facebook post describing her cat. According to Maltseva, Pampuh is a very respectful cat and could be “not just an agent, but also a curator”, but the presence of paws hinders it to play that role.
The owner makes her own guess, why the Ukrainian special services turned the cat Pampukh into a secret agent. She says that keeps company with Muravitsky, so they periodically called up and communicated:
“Last winter we decided to go to Vasya (diminutive from Vasily – edit.) for a few days to visit and take the cat with us. At that time, SBU obviously listened to Muravitsky’s telephone conversations for a long time, therefore, his promise to take Pampukh to the highest rank it took into account and thought that Pampukh is a very serious person, since we always name it only by nickname.”
Although the case of Muravitsky more and more resembles a farce, the Ukrainian special services intend to resolutely bring it to the end, and then it will not be funny, but sad. Opposition journalist Muravitsky was arrested by special services in Zhytomyr on August 1, 2017. He is suspected of state treason, encroachment on the territorial integrity and inviolability of Ukraine, violation of the equality of citizens and the establishment of a terrorist organization. According to the SBU, his articles were published on “websites that were administered from the Russian Federation and temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine.” The prosecutor’s office said that the journalist faces up to 15 years of imprisonment with confiscation of property.

Ukraine | Ukraine and October: one hundred years of the banned revolution

November 7, 2017: In the commentary on the centennial of the October Revolution, two extremes can be seen. On the one hand, we don’t tire of talking about the outstanding significance of this historic event, about its achievements, accomplishments and victories. But those who fall into pathos recall that a century later, the legacy of October is reduced to nothing. And the holiday of the victory of the revolutionary forces has to be celebrated in days of obvious defeat — when these forces have long since dried up, and their flags are lying now somewhere in the dustbin of history, where they are picked up by political rogues and fringes.

Ukraine | Ukrainian official offers to shoot Ukrainians for cooperation with Russia

Head of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) of Ukraine Alexander Turchinov considers it possible to shoot Ukrainians for cooperation with Russia.

“What I want to say is that all those who cooperate with the aggressor should be imprisoned. This is my position. Whoever helps the aggressor should go there. If there is at least one hint that there is cooperation that strengthens the defense capability of the Russian Federation, I’m sorry, we will arrest and shoot. There are no other options,” he said.

This statement, which was made by the head of the National Security and Defense Council during the presentation of a new unmanned aerial vehicle on the Antonov flight test facility on Wednesday, was not included in the broadcast from the event’s place, but later the recording with these words was demonstrated by the Ukrainian “Channel 5”. At the same presentation Turchinov announced plans to create drones that will collect information over Kamchatka and other regions of Russia.
