Oleh Soskin: Putin's goal is not the seizure of Ukraine, but the destruction of cities.

Some politicians and analysts claim that Ukraine is about to hold a successful military operation, which will start the process of liberation of the occupied territories of the Donbass from Russian troops and militants. However, these so-called experts do not mention that during his reign Putin did not lose a single geopolitical battle.

The Flood of Rules creates Injustice

Carlos Gebauer (a renowned criminal lawyer and advocate, writer, Germany) proposed the reasonable answers to the questions: what the reason of the chaos of regulation is and why it appears as a result of good ideas. Carlos Gebauer emphasised the difference between the “right” and “law” arguing that the letter is a result of artificial and often ungrounded perception of social needs by the governments.

Subsidies: When Free Comes at High Cost

Johan Norberg (Senior Fellow, The Cato Institute, USA, European Centre for International Political Economy, Belgium, and Board Member, The Mont Pelerin Society) proved his statement about the hidden costs of subsidies with the idea of Ludwig Von Mises that government cannot create something from nothing: “Government spending cannot create additional jobs. If the government provides the funds required by taxing the citizens or by borrowing from the public, it abolishes on the one hand as many jobs as it creates on the other.

The best way to raise the wages in Ukraine is to make revaluation of hryvnia

There are two ways to raise the average salary in Ukraine.One way is to artificially raise the minimum wage and launch the process of inflation (as did Groisman).Business can not raise the salary in a short period. 6-8 thousand hryvnias - this is the limit for small and medium-sized businesses.But as a result of the artificial lifting of the minimum wage in 10 and even 20 times the payments to state officials also increased.

Oleh Soskin: Poroshenko started the liquidation of the political structure of society

Poroshenko and his group started the liquidation of the political structure of Ukrainian society. Contrary to the Constitution, the state began to exercise the control over the internal affairs of political parties. Political reprisals against parties are carried out with the help of the NACC.

Oleh Soskin: Ukrainian state officials have to travel by public transport

Swedish kings or prime ministers in Scandinavian countries travel by bike or by public transport. This is considered to be quite normal.If the official does not solve the problems of the community, but cares only about himself/ herself, he/she must be removed immidiately. Such a vertical model is built up in gangster states. The state is headed by the clan-corporate group. Such state needs injustice and kleptomaniacs.

Kievans are shocked by the sudden increase in utility tariffs

So far the situation in Kiev is quiet, but the residents, of course, are shocked.Everything happened very unexpectedly, there were no prerequisites: Klichko never spoke about it.The situation is complicated by the fact that the Kiev authorities can not cope with the provision of heating to the city. Two thermoelectric power stations have already been disconnected. And almost the entire city does not have hot water. The negative attitude in Kiev will rise after apartment owners raise the rent for tenants.
