Thirty years ago this week, the world eyes focused on the Ukrainian city of Chernobyl, where the world's worst nuclear accident was contaminating swaths of what was then the Soviet Union. Now, that nuclear wasteland is being transformed into a solar farm that could generate as much energy as two units of the doomed nuclear plant. VOA's Oksana Ligostova reports from Kyiv, narrated by Steve Redisch.

In a move that further cements Russia's control over parts of eastern Ukraine, Russian officials announced Tuesday they will begin supplying electricity to separatist-controlled areas in eastern Ukraine after the Ukrainian government cut off the power because of millions in unpaid bills. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov described the decision as a humanitarian mission - helping to keep an estimated 3 million people out of darkness - but would not say exactly when or how the power supply will be flowing into the rebel-controlled part of Luhansk region that borders Russia. The rebels are backed by Russia. Ukraine on Monday announced it will stop supplying power to rebel-held areas in Luhansk because of mounting debts, and local media reported the supply was cut off around midnight. “Cutting the power supply to the Luhansk region is yet another step by Ukraine to push those territories away,” Peskov told reporters in Moscow, saying the movecontradicts the spirit” of the peace accords that Kyiv and the rebels signed in Minsk, Belarus, under Russia and European mediation in 2015.

Organizers from the Free Russia Foundation, a U.S.-based NGO founded by Russian dissidents, have opened what they call “an Embassy of the Civil Society of Russia in Ukraine,” in Kyiv's trendy Podil district. Housed in a red brick building with a small blue sign that readsFree Russia House,” its founders plan to transform the now-bare office into a cultural center and think tank, as well as a support service for Russians who fled to Ukraine for political reasons. Vladislav Davidzon, chief editor of Odessa Review, an English-language monthly, is a member of the center’s advisory board and was present at its opening. According to him, the main goal of the center is to increase trust between anti-Kremlin Russians and Ukrainians. “The issue is that Ukrainians and Russians have no actual contact,” Davidzon said. “They do not know what is going on in the other country.

If that well-known fact wasnt enough to caution Higgins, what was? In the next article to follow, starting with Yurash as the first example, I’ll show you how all these volunteer experts including Higgins get paid. The article will further cement and establish the relationships between Bellingcat, Weisburd, Watts and other intel and news headline providers with each other as well as their employers.

"We want an honest investigation." Russia's top diplomat said Moscow will not "shield anyone" responsible for the attack. Trump, in an interview, said Putin was partly to blame for the Syrian conflict, now in its seventh year, for backing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, whom he called an "animal." Tillerson's trip to Moscow represented the highest-level contact between the United States and Russia since Trump took office in January. The two countries are at odds over multiple issues, including Moscow's continued support for rebels in eastern Ukraine battling against the Kyiv government, and the U.S. intelligence community's declaration that computer hackers acting on orders from the Kremlin interfered in last year's U.S. presidential election. Tillerson said Wednesday Russian meddling in the U.S. election was a serious problem that has been "fairly well established.
