Case could embarrass Vladimir Putin and prompt Ukrainian demands for reparations

The Russian state directed and ran the military coup in Crimea and its subsequent annexation in 2014, Ukraine has told the European court of human rights.

The case in Strasbourg is one of a series of brought by the Ukrainian government designed to expose alleged Russian state complicity in human rights abuses. It has the potential to embarrass Vladimir Putin and lead to Ukrainian demands for reparations from Russia.

Each country releasing 35 prisoners in biggest exchange since start of Crimea conflict

A long-awaited prisoner exchange between Russia and Ukraine got under way on Saturday morning, Russian state media said.

Details of the exchange have been kept under wraps, but it is believed that both countries will release about 35 prisoners.

Russia is expected to hand over 24 Ukrainian sailors that it took captive during a naval clash off the coast of Crimea last year.

Rossiya 24, a Russian state television channel, confirmed that the exchange had begun. It broadcast images of two buses with tinted windows leaving Moscow’s Lefortovo prison. The buses later arrived at Moscow’s Vnukovo airport, while a plane with the Ukrainian flag was spotted on the runway. Relatives of the Ukrainian prisoners gathered at Kyiv’s Boryspil airport.

Russian businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin denies existence of mercenary group Wagner


​Wagner’s involvement in Syria was first reported in 2017 by Denis Korotkov for the Russian investigative website Fontaka. Kortokov reported that Russian mercenaries first began operating in Syria under the Wagner banner in 2015.

_Sources told The Bell that Prigozhin had a personal relationship with Putin but was not in his inner circle nor, at the time, as publicly visible as other Putin confidants.

#Prigozhin responded by denying the existence of Wagner Group, telling The Bell the information had been provided through the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) in collaboration with Korotkov – who, he said, was reportedly fired from “Fontanka” for publishing unverified information.

#Russia enforces troop strength on #Mariupol


Russian occupation forces in Donbas focus their efforts mainly on the Mariupol direction and in the Azov Sea area, Commander of Ukraine's Joint Forces Serhiy Nayev says. "Russian occupation forces are not attacking, but this doesn't mean that they ceased their attempts to provoke further conflict," Nayev said in an interview with Austria's Wiener Zeitung, according to the JFO HQ press service.

Trending: Strong borders, improved by fences and walls


Yefim Fiks, a spokesman for the de facto Crimean parliament, told the Russian news agency Ria Novosti on Friday that the move was necessary "to protect the local population from the crazy antics of the current Ukrainian government".

Remember: Russia annexed the peninsula by violating international law and accelerating a war against Ukraine. Now, they even dare to separating this stolen land from it's actual proprietor. What comes next - installing cannons to fire at enemies that cross the seas? I don't know, but I wouldn't contradict this idea.

"I hope that neither this fence nor other actions by occupants will lead to limitation of Ukrainian citizens' right to visit the peninsula."

It would be naive that it would not. It's exactly what Putin wants, don't you think so too?

#Israel to agree on condemning Russian #Crimea occupation


The resolution calls on Russia to withdraw armed forces from what the signers call “temporarily occupied” Crimea. It also condemns the growing military presence of Russia in the Black and Azov seas, and obstruction of navigation.

No, I'm not going to make neither a joke nor a reference on the Israeli settlements which violate international law. You'll have to beat me to it. ;-)
