Bundy Supporters Defy Feds By Riding ATVs In Off-Limits Utah Canyon – 13 May 2014

RT logoThe Bureau of Land Management is being taken to task again by Cliven Bundy supporters, this time by dozens of people on all-terrain vehicles in Utah. But on Saturday, the BLM stood down as the ATVs rode on land closed to motorized vehicles since 2007.

The ATV ride was organized by San Juan County Commissioner Phil Lyman, who said he was acting as a private citizen. He contends that Blanding, a town of 3,500 residents, have been trying to compromise with the BLM since the closure of Utah’s Recapture Canyon to motorized vehicles after two men illegally constructed a 7-mile-long, 4-foot-wide trail through the canyon. The trail — complete with bridges, berms and stiles — cut through Native American archaeological sites. The Pueblo tribe lived in the canyon until 800 years ago.

Mish/ Mike Shedlock – Separatists Ask Putin To Annex Donetsk Following Referendum; Sanction Hypocrisy And Warship Sales – 13 May 2014

MishMikeShedlockSeparatists in Donetsk claim a turnout of 74.9% in a referendum on self-determination with 89.7% voting in favor of self-rule.

Ukraine says turnout was 32%. I suspect the truth is somewhere in between but that’s a pretty wide gap. Even 32% turnout seems respectable given the circumstances.

The Ukrainian government claims the election was a farce and the US called it illegal. Nonetheless, Separatists Urge Russia to Annex Donetsk in Wake of Referendum. Continue reading

Ron Paul: Why Is US Involved In Ukraine? – 13 May 2014

RT logoThe United States is being hypocritical in its response to the armed clashes between Kiev and pro-Russian groups in eastern Ukraine, former Congressman Ron Paul wrote in a new column.

In the column, published by the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, the former libertarian lawmaker questioned the American role in the conflict unfolding in Ukraine, criticizing the US for blaming recent outbreaks of violence on Russian sympathizers rather than the Ukrainian military.

The column comes just a few days after the Ukrainian military killed about 20 people in Mariupol, where the country’s Interior Ministry claimed that pro-Russia militants attempted to seize the local police building. Residents in the area, meanwhile, stated that local police did not want to take orders from Kiev, and that sparked a response by the military that ended up engulfing outsiders who arrived in support of the officers.

Gazprom To Cut Supplies To Ukraine From June If No Prepayment – 12 May 2014

RT logoIf Kiev does not pay its gas bills by June 2, exports to Ukraine will be halted the next day, Gazprom CEO Aleksey Miller said. Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev meanwhile urged demanding advanced payment from Kiev as early as Tuesday.
