        • Nation New government fully backs LNG terminal project, says Yatseniuk Journal Staff Report

          KIEV, April 2 - Ukraine’s new government fully backs project of building a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in order to diversify the country’s energy imports away from Russia, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk said Wednesday. The $1-billion project was originally suggested in 2010 and pushed for by the previous government, but Yatseniuk, appointed as the prime minister on February 27, said the project will get his full support. “The previous government tried to build LNG-terminal. We have not abandoned the idea,” Yatseniuk said at a conference in Kiev. “We support this project.”

          Ukraine asks Russia to grant official status to Ukrainian language
          Journal Staff Report

          KIEV, April 2 – Ukraine has proposed that Russia grant official status to the Ukrainian language, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk has said.

          "The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry has made a statement on the matter. The Ukrainian-speaking community is the largest in Russia, and it would be completely natural if Ukrainian is a second state language in Russia, or at least has a special status," he said during Dragon Capital's 10th annual investment conference in Kiev on Wednesday.

          He said that Ukraine was also asking the Russian authorities to open Ukrainian schools in Russia.

                Be careful w/Russian sites! The second, a warning banner comes up, get out of there immediately. I use an exc program w/a serious firewall for protection and last night I had to call in the IT Cavalry. The Techie told me, they have been seeing a rise in these kinds of calls.

                • Thanks for the warning about the Russian sites. I had to stop reading the Kiev News on the internet, as my computer was slowing down. So I have been reading the Kiev News on my tablet. Would reading the Russian sites on the tablet or ipad be okay?

                    • The Russian economy may face $100 billion in capital flight this year, according to Andrey Belousov, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s aide. Holders of shares of Russian companies are expected to sell them en-masse. The World Bank is more pessimistic, forecasting $150 billion outflowing in 2014.

                      The nationalization of Ukrainian assets by the renegade Crimean government brings even more insecurity for investors seeking parking places for their capital in emerging markets. The situation in Thailand is not too much similar to Ukraine’s, but the country is also facing the risk of disintegration. Protests there over an alleged corrupt government have become bloody in recent days. Therefore, as investors see how multilateral agreements are being violated in Crimea, they have all the reasons to assume same will happen in Thailand. Then if Thailand faces capital flight – one may not say Ukrainian crisis has no relations to it.

                        • The division myth
                          07.02.2014 | Ivan Malyshko
                          There are no internal reasons for the territorial disintegration of Ukraine because separatists are a priori marginal even in the epicenters of the conflict

                          In the 20th century in Europe, which survived two world wars and the downfall of empires, there were only two examples of territorial disintegration of unified states for internal reasons: the bloody division of Yugoslavia and the peaceful separation of Czechoslovakia. In both cases, the main motives for disintegration were a purely national factor, which is hardly applicable to modern Ukraine. After all, according to the Census 2001, the ethnic map in Ukraine is almost homogeneous: more than 90% of Ukrainians live in 13 oblasts, in six oblasts this figure is approximately 80% and in three oblasts – more than 70%.

                          The most recent figures only confirm this trend – the number of ethnic Ukrainians has increased over the years of independence (now the rate is close to 80% throughout all of Ukraine), while the number of ethnic Russians has decreased (the current estimates are 15%).

                          Crimea is the only region where Russians prevail over the rest of the population. In the early 1990s there were attempts to split the peninsula from Ukraine, which ended in 1995 with the inglorious departure from the political scene of the first and last Crimean president Yuriy Meshkov. Ever since, separatist moods about the autonomy´s accession to Russia have been gradually and steadily declining in Crimea. For example, according to a survey conducted in Crimea in August 2013 by the Rating group, only 18% of the Crimean people believe that Ukraine and Russia should become one state, while 63% of the respondents speak in favor of the existence of Ukraine and Russia as independent states with open borders.

                          • Ukraine: how to lose a country
                            When Putin separated Crimea from Ukraine, he separated Ukraine from Russia, at least for the foreseeable future
                            When Vladimir Putin seized Crimea, he lost Ukraine. He had slandered the Ukrainian protest movement as variously fascist, decadent, and gay. Then he went beyond that, to claim that the interim government that the protesters had helped bring into being was planning to persecute Russian speakers in Crimea and elsewhere. Finally he insulted a neighbouring country that had no way of defending itself by seizing its land.

                              My opinion is you should be safe on the tablet. Worst you can get is popups, but any viruses, tracking softwares, etc are designed for PCs. The tablet wouldn't allow any of that to be installed.
