After eating, Fedan, Psycho and two other soldiers take their rifles and go straight to the line of fire — with loud jokes and laughing. Their mission, for now, is to get to the forward trenches outside the Skeleton Position to reinforce their comrades-in-arms, who are containing enemy fire while the civilian journalists are in the Promzona. “Let’s roll, fellas,” Oleksandr the “Psycho” says, pulling back the bolt of his gun. With obscene battle cries, they run outside, along the right side of the building, towards the forward trenches. “We havent had any casualties for a couple of weeks here,” says Chernin as he watches the four soldiers run off through the ruins. “And every day I pray to God to save those boys. They’re only 20 years old at most. I hate this war for ruining their lives for nothing.” Soon, the silence is broken by the loud detonation of a hand grenade near the building — and a new firefight in the Avdiyivka industrial zone begins.

Transparency International Ukraine may file civil cases on behalf of the Ukrainian people with regard to $40 billion allegedly stolen by Viktor Yanukovych, the group’s head has said. “That’s something we are considering,” said Jose Ugaz, Transparency International’s global chairman, in an interview with the Kyiv Post on May 22. Ugaz declined to provide details on what those filings would look like, but said that Ukraine’s failure to act on the Yanukovych case is “a scandal for the world.” “It’s a shame for Ukraine that after so many years, and it being so obvious that this guy was involved in serious schemes of corruption, that nothing is happening,” he said. Ugaz’s trip to Kyiv on May 2223 for an anti-corruption workshop is his second visit to Ukraine since being elected chair of Transparency International in 2014. On his last trip, the 57-year old Peruvian attorney met President Petro Poroshenko and Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko, both of whom told him at the time that there was “political will” to tackle corruption.

NATO Secretary General supports sanctions against Russia, since the Alliance includes the EU countries and the United States, which made relevant decisions, said the alliance Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg. It's for the EU and the U.S. to decide on economic sanctions, but I have expressed support to these actions. And of course, 22 of the EU members and the U.S. are members of NATO, Stoltenberg said ahead of the meeting of NATO heads of state and/or government on May 25. I support the sanctions. I think the sanctions are extremely important as a reaction to the illegal annexation of Crimea and the lack of implementation of the Minsk agreements. And then I leave it to the EU and the U.S. to make the specific decisions on sanctions, the secretary general said. The post Stoltenberg supports sanctions against Russia appeared first on KyivPost .

Fedorak says that “the demand for rent in Kyiv will remain high, as the number of high-quality and adequate offers is not catching up with the demand. Even neglected housing with an (average) price easily finds its tenants.” Both real estate agents and experts agree that rental prices in the capital will not rise over the next year. The real estate market is a marker of the economy. If salaries dont grow and the purchasing power of Ukrainians remains low then landlords wont be able to raise rental prices. Fedorak does not “see any reasons for any changes in Ukraine’s rental market (in the nearest future).” The post Artem Muliavko’s quest to find an affordable place to rent in capital appeared first on KyivPost .

When Igor Rubinstein moved to Kyiv six years ago, he had big problems finding an apartment. He realized that there were no agents or brokers able to offer the kind of high-quality help that he had come to expect when living in Western Europe. So he decided to set up his own agency to fill that gap in the market. What’s more, Rubinstein saw that alongside information technology and agriculture, property ranks as one of the economic sectors of Ukraine with the potential to prosper. One of the telltale signs, which can often seem puzzling to outsiders, is the high price of property relative to average incomes. “There arent any investment vehicles apart from real estate and keeping money under the mattress,” he told the Kyiv Post in an interview. “Banks fold, savings deposits can be withheld, the hryvnia gets devalued. So essentially the only safe haven is putting money abroad, or, for the general population who dont have investment vehicles for that, it’s real estate.

Investors were underwhelmed, he suggests, by the PFS, which outlined an eight year Chinchillas project with a post-tax NPV (net present value) of US$178mln, of which, a 25% share would be US$ 44.5mln, or equal to about 60 Canadian cents a share. He also points to possible uncertainty as to how management will fund Chinchillasestimated US$ 20.25mln capital requirement over the next 18 months. But Epstein answers this by saying that once the joint venture deal closes, Golden Arrow will have around C$27mln, or US$20mln of cash. "On top of that, there’s an additional C$ 7mln from in-the-money options and warrants, plus an estimated C$ 11mln stretching out into mid-2018 from its share of cash flow from processing stockpiles at the Pirquitas mine," he suggests. In terms of the pre-feasibility study, Epstein says there is a "substantial" amount of upside to the net present value, including from a potentially extended mine life and higher production.

Ukraine has become a second home for award-winning U.S independent filmmaker Chad Gracia, director of the “Russian Woodpecker.” The movie, a documentary about a Ukrainian victim of the Chornobyl nuclear disaster, won the World Cinema Documentary Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival in 2015. After working in Ukraine, the director decided to buy a land plot and build a house in Kyiv Oblast. The deal is still pending, but but he explained to the Kyiv Post why he chose a rural setting. Clever investment Gracia said there are many reasons to buy a land plot in Kyiv Oblast: fresh air, peace and quiet, proximity to the city and the wonderful beauty of the countryside. “My first step will be to build a cozy cottage, and then I’ll invite friends from abroad during the summer to enjoy the outdoors, campfires, and fresh milk and vegetables from the local babushkas,” Gracia said.

This is the biggest thing in carbon capture, MIT chemical engineer and carbon capture expert Howard Herzog told Science . It's very sound on paper. We should know soon if the system lives us to its promise as NET Power's 25-megawatt demonstration plant in Houston will become operational later this year. If the prototype power plant works as hoped, the next step would be to open a $300 million full-scale 300-megawatt plant by 2021. According to John Thompson , a carbon capture expert from nonprofit Clean Air Task Force, This is a game-changer if they achieve 100 percent of their goals.
