The UN has voiced concerns over the apparent use of UN-marked helicopters by Kiev troops in their military operation against Donetsk regional militia. A video of a white-painted Mil Mi-24 strike helicopter with UN logo has emerged.

When inquired about the United Nations' stance on the use of peacekeeper-marked military hardware in non-peacekeeper operations, the office for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's spokesperson said such use would violate UN rules.

"It is the responsibility of Troop Contributing Countries (TCCs) that provide Contingent Owned Equipment to peacekeeping missions to remove all logos and signage bearing the UN's name once such equipment has been repatriated to the home country or is no longer being used for official UN purposes," the office told RT.

It added that UN-marked aircraft can be used for missions tasked by the UN and that UN's Departments of Peacekeeping Operations and Field Support is in contact with the Ukrainian authorities to clarify the issue.

A video of a UN-marked Mil Mi-24 strike helicopter was published on Tuesday by LifeNews television. It said its correspondents covering Kiev's military operation in the Donetsk Region took the video near Kramatorsk. LifeNews said at least three combat Mi-24 and one transport Mi-8 helicopters carrying UN colors were spotted in the area.


The Ukrainian military has provided equipment for several UN peacekeeping missions, particularly in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Ban on free speech: Ukraine's presidential frontrunner Poroshenko urges to lay mines at TV towers to prevent Ukrainians from watching Russian TV

Ukrainian presidential nominee Petro Poroshenko on Tuesday called on the authorities in Kiev to go as far as laying mines at television towers to block access to Russian television channels for Ukrainians.

"Today, we need to protect TV towers and lay mines there if necessary. Anyway, it is impossible to allow our people to be exposed to the Russian propaganda because that is creating a big problem," Poroshenko said in a live interview with Ukraine's ICTV television channel.

Poroshenko thanked all Ukrainian television channels for an initiative to remove all TV series and films about the Russian army from air.

Poroshenko earlier told media he had provided assistance to Euromaidan protesters in Kiev. "Euromaidan" is the unofficial name for anti-government protests in Ukraine that started when President Viktor Yanukovych refused to sign an association agreement with the European Union last year to study the deal more thoroughly.

Comment: For every day that passes the fascist junta in Kiew displays to the world and their own population, who they really are: Deluded fascist with serious symptoms of psychopathic pathologies.

The real roots of Xinjiang terror

Uyghur disenfranchisement is played upon to foment Islamic radicalism and political separatist sentiment. The East Turkestan Islamic movement seeking to wrest Xinjiang from China's control offers a number of parallels to the shadowy "Al Qaeda" terror organization, including a mysterious leader living in a secret mountain base in Pakistan's lawless border region and, as FBI whistleblower and BoilingFrogsPost founder Sibel Edmonds revealed in last year's series on Gladio B, direct support from NATO-associated Gladio operatives seeking to destabilize a geostrategic region in an ongoing, under-the-radar war for control of Central Asia.

The lawsuit that has Wall Street running scared

Traders on the New York Stock Exchange
Variety reports that Sony Pictures is close to snagging the movie rights to the new book by Michael Lewis, "Flash Boys," which builds the case that high frequency trading firms and Wall Street mega banks are conspiring with U.S. stock exchanges to rig the market against the average investor and the pension funds holding their meager retirement benefits.

If Sony is smart, it will delay release of the film until it can replicate some real-life courtroom drama from the epic battle that is likely to ensue from a class-action lawsuit in the matter that was filed last month on April 18 in Federal Court in the Southern District of New York.

The plaintiff in the lawsuit has elicited snickers from the moneyed crowd on Wall Street. It was filed on behalf of the city of Providence, Rhode Island, an area founded in 1636 that became one of the original thirteen colonies, and is not typically known for hobnobbing with the hedge funds of Greenwich, Connecticut or the Wall Street suspender crowd in New York.

Docking completed on the International Space Station

Russia casts doubt on the long-term future of the International Space Station, a showcase of post-Cold War cooperation, as it retaliated on Tuesday against U.S. sanctions over Ukraine.


Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said Moscow would reject a U.S. request to prolong the orbiting station's use beyond 2020, and bar Washington from using Russian-made rocket engines to launch military satellites.

Moscow took the action, which also included suspending operation of GPS satellite navigation system sites on its territory from June, in response to U.S. plans to deny export licences for high-technology items that could help the Russian military.

"We are very concerned about continuing to develop high-tech projects with such an unreliable partner as the United States, which politicises everything," Rogozin told a news conference.

Barack Obama and the Monsanto betrayal

Under the selective radar of mainstream media, Barack Obama has been carving out a whole new level of support for Monsanto and other destructive biotech giants.

From Scott Creighton,
Obama Pitches India Model of GM Genocide to Africa:

"At the G8 Summit held two weeks ago at Camp David, President Obama met with private industry and African heads of state to launch the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, a euphemism for monocultured, genetically modified crops and toxic agrochemicals aimed at making poor farmers debt slaves to corporations, while destroying the ecosphere for profit."

900,000 crimes not pursued by UK police in 2013, including rape

Nearly a million criminal offences including rape have gone unrecorded by police in a single year, according to a damning report that could see the 20-year decline in recorded crime reversed when accurate statistics are calculated.

Inspectors said they suspected "discreditable and unethical" behaviour by some officers and said they had discovered 14 reported rapes that were wrongly categorised in a study of 13 of the 43 police forces in England and Wales.

They included the case of a 13-year-old boy with autism who complained of an attack by a 15-year-old friend but the case was written off as "sexual experimentation" because of the negative effect it might have on the victim.

State Department buying massive cache of explosives, journalists claim

U.S. Dept. of State: "'Foreign policy' ... we can blow stuff up with that, right?"
The Department of State is shopping around for hundreds of pounds of plastic explosives and detonator devices, a new report reveals, raising concerns regarding an American agency that usually deals with foreign policy, not dynamite procurement.

Even after several solicitations for explosives were posted publically on the website where federal offices can ask for quotes from contractors, however, representatives at the United States State Dept. have reportedly laughed at questions from reporters wanting to know why the requests have been made.

Earlier this week, Steve Peacock at WND became the first to write about procurement documents on FBO.gov in which the State Dept. filed no fewer than four separate orders for high-powered explosives, detonating chords, blasting caps and fuse igniters.

Then late Monday, Peacock wrote that requests for comment from the State Dept. were met with laughter.

"For what purpose is the department making these purchases? How - and where and by whom - will these explosives be used?" the reporter asked.

According to WND's second report in two days on the matter, a State Dept. public affairs specialist laughed and said, "I'm not sure what you're looking for."

Comment: The U.S. Dept. of State should change their motto: "Finding better ways to blow people up."

Barack Obama, serial murderer, receives "Ambassador for Humanity" Award

"It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets." (Voltaire, 1694-1778.)


It is impossible not to gain the impression that the criteria for being awarded prestigious honors for services to "peace", "humanity" or "distinguished public service" is a candidate who is duplicitous, vicious, stone hearted and above all prepared to kill, plan killings or rejoice in killing on an industrial scale as brutally as can be devised.

Moments after being informed of the horrific death of Libyan Leader Colonel Muammar Quaddafi in October 2011, then Secretary of state Hillary Clinton said "Wow!" then unforgettably and chillingly laughed telling a television crew: "We came, we saw, he died." Asked if her recent visit to Libya might have had anything to do with his death, she: "... rolled her eyes" and said: "I'm sure it did."(1)

Ironic: Germany provides miltiary uniforms for fascist troops in Ukraine


The new German-sponsored brown-shirts in Ukraine
Tents from the USA, ballistic vests from France, and linen donated by locals - the cash-strapped Ukrainian government is using all available resources to make its forces battleworthy. But supplies won't help the troops' low morale or lack of experience.

Special operations units, Omega and Vega, have received new German-made uniforms, the Ukrainian Interior Ministry announced on Tuesday.

"The troops noted that the uniforms are a well-timed and an important gift, since they are though-out in all respects," the ministry said in a statement.

The uniforms were provided by Ukraine's Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenuk, judging from a thank-you note posted by Interior Minister Arsen Avakov on his Facebook page. It was not immediately clear whether Yatsenuk bought the uniforms with his personal money, allocated budget funds or received them from Germany as aid. Avakov said the uniforms were transported to Kiev's loyalist troops deployed near Slavyansk.

Meanwhile, the Defense Ministry said it will buy 24,000 bullet-proof vests for their troops with money collected through private donations. The vests are expected to arrive by the end of July. The ministry added that in addition to $10.4 million, it had also received donations of sleeping bags, linen and mattresses from the people.

Ukrainian troops, both in the army and in the interior forces, have been receiving plenty of gear lately, paid for by the government, private donations, or foreign sponsors of the Kiev regime. The US is expected to send $7 million worth of non-lethal aid to Ukraine to bolster its border guards, the Ukrainian military reported on Monday.
